"UNitKQUiETKi) love and suicide"
are becoming ho frequent that it
looks as if something should bo done
to bring into uso again the old time
"lovo powders," which were said to
make peoplo lovo one another under
the most unfavorable circumstances.
Still, however, thoso who commit
suicide for lovo are generally fools,
and perhaps it is better to let nature
take Its course.
That distinguished olomcut of
society which over claret during
meals, champagne a little later and
brandy to wind up on, Is still having
troublo about tho proj)onslty of tho
masses to indulge In malt liquors,
and it in still discussing the mlvlsi-
blllty of removing from the path ef
. tho common citizen tho allurements
of lager beer. The moral suflorlngs
of that distinguished element are
even painful to contemplate.
Even In Conservative England
the times aro Indued changed. Tho
cuno hH always been considered ns
necessary, a part of tho school
master's possessions as tho spelling
book and corporal punishment pre
vail there to an extent that would
not bo tolerated here. A school
master was recently sued by the
father of a pupil whom he had un
mercifully beaten by caning him on
tho hand, and tho magistrate
gave Judgment against the
pedagogue on tho ground that can
ing on the hand was attended by a
risk of injury, and there wero "meth
ods of corporal punishment quite as
available, eflacaclous and not necos
harlly attended by any risk, which
the defendent might havu used.',
Now. that the question of ships for
the new navy has been so far settled
an to mako it certain that wo can
build vessels which arc fully equal
in all respects to those of other mar
itime powers, publlo attention be
ing directed to tho armament for
our navy that is to be. It Is not
generally known, perhaps, that the
government owns and controls a
process for hardening steel which
makes tho peuetratlvo powers of our
heavy ordinance projectiles superior
to that of any other projectile yet
manufactured. Tho process Is a
secret one, but tho result has already
been alluded to by the European
writers on military allhirs. Com
modoro Sirard, chief of tho Naval
Jluronuof Ordinance, has Just Hied
his annual report and It contains
many ('matters or general Interest,
among others a reference to armor
piercing shells.
Tills report states that during tho
past year the six-Inch armaments of
tlin PlifirL'iitfiii Viiiltiiuii .....I
- w "- I . ... mitt
Petrel wero completed and sent to
tho vessels, and thut the armament
for tho J Suit I more is ready. The
eight-Inch guns for the Charleston
and Uultlmore will be ready within
tho current year. The armuments
for tho Philadelphia, lieuiilngtou,
Concord ami Ban Frauc'.seo will bo
finished us soon us tho Vessels are
ready for them, io
Tlio estimates for tho Naval
reau of Ordlnnnco for the ensuing
fiscal year amount to $5,545,724,
which is certainly very moderate.
With the present facilities for man
ufacturing It is probable that no
more than this could be expended
to advantage. There will certainly
be no disposition on the part of con
gress to stint the naval estimates,
as the sentiment of the people is
practically nil one way. The de
mand for the a new navy has grown
so strong as to break down all con
siderations of partisan politics, and
democrats and republicans will vie
with each other in urging the com
pletionofan effective force of war
ships, with which the United States
may defend her honor on tho ecean

This is a short world. We may
praise It or despise it, we may love
or grow weary of it; but however we
may esteem it, its course is very
brief compared with the vustnessof
tho world to come the glory of the
endless ages that stretch themselves
before the saints of Heaven. Com
pared with the mighty possibilities
of tho everlasting state, how brief,
how transient, how uncertain is the
stage in which we live. Our life Is
a vapor that vanislieth away; our
days are swift as an arrow's flight;
time hastens on with restless strides,
and tno great, grand future of etern
ity rolls steadily onward to meet us
as wo pass tho boundaries of this
transient world.- Oh, that we who
have been charmed by earth's beau
ties, and entangled amid its snares,
could learn liow brief its story is;
bow soon its pomp shall fade, how
soon its joys shall pass away. "The
life that now is." is like one grain of
sand as compared with the wide
reaching shore, and the joys and
pleasures that have engaged our
thoughts are but motes In tho sun
beam when compared with tho en
during glory which shall fill th
eternal existence ot God's redeemed
with brightness and gladness per
petual as tho years of heaven. This
is a short world; whether it be filled
witli Joy or sorrow, light or shade, It
matters little. Hero we are to work
or wait, but soon all will bo over,
and tho eternal day will dawn; the
clouds, and shades, and storms will
pass, and oh, that we, when the
morning breaks, may, as "children
of light," be found watching and
waiting, prepared for the bright and
everlasting day.
Wonder whether really crime or
law came first. Law came very
early in tho history of 'things. If
wo remember aright Adam and Evo
were Instructed not to eat fruit in
the Garden of Eden. So It would
Bocin that law camo first and led to
crime. Would they have eaten tho
fatal apple if they had not been told
to? Thoy were found out. How?
This has beon a puzzle to thoso clear
headed peoplo who want facts, and
reason, and other troublesome and
dangerous things. Yet it is not so
diftlcult. It must have been a green
apple and tho evidence wa tho ef
fect. It Is easy to tell tho boy who
has eaten a green applo to this day.
It is ono situation iu life where
presenco of mind absolutely falls.'
And down the corridors of time has
rung that irritating, exciting and
upsetting commandment "Thou
shalt not eat of the forbidden fruit,"
aud It governs everything from
cholera morbus to social ostracism.
Wo have got so many varieties now
of forblddon fruit that wo overcomo
tho difficulty by a Uttlo careful trans'
planting and grafting.

The Hottest Spot on Kai-Ci.
The hottest region on the earth is
on the southwestern coast of Persia,
whero Persia borders the gulf of the
same'name. For forty consecutive
days in the months Of July vvil
August the thermometer has been
known not to fall lower than 100 de
grees, night or day, and to often run
up as high as 12S degrees in the af
ternoon. AtBahrin, in the tvntie
ot the torrid part of tills turf Id belt,
as though it were natuie's intention
to make tho region a unbearable as
possible, no water can be obtained
from digging wells 10'J, 200 or even
500 feet deep, yet a comparatively
numerous population contrive to live
there, thanks to copious springs,
which break forth from the bottom
of the gulf, more than a mile from
The water from these springo is
obtained by divers, who divo to tho
bottom and fill goat-skin bags with
the cooling liquid and sell it for a
living. Tho source of these sub
marine fountains is thought to bo in
tho green hill of Osman, some oOOor
COO miles away.
A Sad Accident.
Western Judce;"You are charged,
sir, with being a leader of a party
that hunted down and lynched a
horse-thief. The days have gone by
when citizens of this great common
wealth can tako the law into 'their
own hands, hence your arrest. What
have you to say?" Prominent citi
zen: "I un't guilty, Jedge. I'll tell
you how it wus. Wo caught the fel
ler and tied his hands and feet.
Nothin' wrongabout that, was there,
Jedge?" "No, that was no doubt
necessary." "Wall, Jedge, there was
a storm comin' up and we coulden't
spare him an umberella very well
aud so we stood him under a tree.
That was all right, wasn't it?" "Cer
tainly." "Wall, tho clouds kept
gatherin' an' tho wind was purty
high, and wo didn't want him blown
away, so wo tied a rope around
his neck and fastened the
other end to the limb above not
titc, Jedge, jest so as to hold him
and wo left him standin' solid on
his feet. Nothin' wrong about that,
was there?" "Nothing at all."
"Then I kin bo excused, can't I?"
"But tho man was found suspended
from that tree and stono dead the
next morning." "None of us had
anything to do with that, Jedge.
You bco wo left him standin' there
in good health and spirits, for wo
give him all ho could drink when
wo said 'good-bye;' but you see, dur
ing tho night tho rain camo up, an'
I 'pposo tho ropo got purty wet an'
shrunk a couple o'fect. That's how
tho sad accident happened, Jedge."

i number of residences are soon to bo built. Buildings only of the best class will be permitted. Residence lots
within the limits of the city of Salem are worth on an average over $1000. We can Bell you better lota in High
