Leopold II, king of Belgium, was in
s class by himself. Europe has left
one hereditary ruler who wields great
influence by virtue of his character
and the popular respect in which he
is held. Francis Joseph of Austria
Hat sat nearly sixty years on his throne,
nnd so much revered is he that states
men agree hisjpcrsonality is the glue
that holds his polyglot empire togeth-
cr. There is then a younger fry among
kings, Nicholas, William, Edward, Al
fonso, and the like, standing in vary
ing statges between figurehead and
autocrat but all largely the creatures
of environment. Leopold, like Francis
Joseph, was bigger than his job, but
in a different way. To the former
dominion is a political enterprise.
To the latter it was a matter of bus
iness. Imagine J. Picrpont Morgan
at the head of a few more industries
and finally taking direct charge of
the government, and you have a king
of the Leopold stripe.
No steel trust was ever run with
eye more single to profit than Leopold
ran his personal kingdom of the Congo.
Before his time Belgium had put it
self pretty well out of reach of its
king. The usual struggle, marked by
a general strike or two, had secured
representative institutions and a fairly
free ballot there. It was when the
governments of Europe some twenty
five years ago made Leopold guardian
of an cmprie of blacks in Africa that
his genius had full chance to shine.
The world knows the result. The more
rubber the old man's wards gathered
the more profit for him. Uncle Tom's
Cabin has no worse tales of American
slavory than came out of the efforts
of the Congo exploiters under Leopold

dislike to see Taylor get that foolish
feeling. We always took him to be a
fairminded and solid sort of a rooster
but when a man gets to thinking that
every man is influenced by a politi
cal job, or the sight of one, he is get
ting to that point where the next thing
he will advocate isthat every nianhaa
his price. "As a man thinks so is he,"
orsometlng like that we have heard
somewhere, and there is a great deal
of truth in the statement. When a
man harbors in his mind a eertaiur
thing and broods over it, sooner or
later his mind will become so imbued
with the thought that it becomes a
part of his lifnnd influences his acts.
Come out of it, Taylor, yoa are too
good a man to go wrong.

The Presbyterian Sunday school
will give an entertainment on Christ
mas night which is entitled "Is Santa
Claus a Fraud," for which much prep
ararion is now being made. The
nature is a trial, and the- scenes are
laid in a court room, where the court
officers, witnesses and jurors, cons
of such personages as Mother Goos
Father Time, the Goddess of Liberty,
Srt. Valentine and liko characters,
into whose hands the futuro of Santa
Claus is placed. There seems a dis
position on the part of some to try and
cry down the character of Santa
Claus, and at this time he is to be given
a fair and impartial triid, with tho in
ference that he is innocent of the charge
arrayed against him until ho shall be
proven guilty. This is a crutical time
and all tho friends of this good old
person arc expected to be present
and do or ay what they can in favor
of him or his character. This will be

They Divide the Humm Family Into
Five Great Cla. .cs.
The physician of a former gen
eration used to talk much of the
"temperament" of his patients
that is to gay, the predominant type
of physical constitution po.?essed
by each, lie studied this permanent
temperament fully as carefully as
lie did the disease temporarily pres
ent before deciding upon the line
of treatment to be adopted.
Even today, although the physi
cian speaks less of temperaments
and diatheses and perhaps would bo
at a loss to tell the names by which
they were formerly designated, he
by no means ignores the physical
tendencies of his patients. From,
the viewpoint of temperament one
may iej..;nl tl.e l.uinaii family as di
vided into five ,Trent classes, al
though few belong solely to ono
ty-e. Most persons have a mixture
of two or more, being classified
rather by the one which predom
inates. The first of these temperaments
is the lymphatic or phlegmatic. In
this the individuals are of a quiet,
rather inert disposition. They move
slowly, but they move surely. They
are usually dependable people, true
to their word and faithful to per
form the duties assigned to them.
A second type, in many way9 the
direct opposite of the first, is the
nervous temperament. These per
sona are quick in their movoments,
energetic in work and. in play,
strenuous, but often without stay
ing power. What they accomplish
they accomplish quickly.
The third type is the gouty, ean
gulne or rheumatic. Tho individ
uals of this group ere of floral com
plexion, frank and jovial disposi
tion, good esters and sleepers and
"never sick." But in later life they
pay for their previous health by
gouty attacks, and when attacked
by serious illness they are likely to

acquaintances hardly knew him. He
likes his new home in the northwest
