A Tennessee editor baa retired after

The Century dictionary says that
Minneapolis is nine miles from St.

A New York man pretended to be

In Anna Dickinson's tiiul for dam
ages for false Imprisonment a doctor
testified that when he was summoned
to attend Miss Dickinson she drew him
down to her and kissed him. As he is
an old man and exerutiatingly homely
this certainly is strong evidence of In
sanity. New York physicians are quarreling
over the subject of heating cars. One
doctor says cars should uever be heat

degrees. The other says they should
be heated when the temperature stands
at 40. Chicago would be delighted to
have them heated when the mercury
stands at zero.
Somebody has invented a process

similar process to apply to dlsbursers

we could tell what becomes of every
dollar. And yet this might prove a case
where "Ignorance is bliss."

A clergyman In a California city did
not approve of the policy of a young
lady librarian In charge of the public
library, who gave certain books, which
the clergyman considered to be harm
ful, to young people In bis congregation.
In one of his prayers the minister
gave utterance to certain charges
against the librarian, mentioning her by
name and, of course, petitioning that
she might be taught to see the error of
her ways. The young woman had not
consciously harmed anyone, and had
merely performed the duties for which
she was employed. She brought an ac
tion against the clergyman for slander,
and that gentleman tried to evade thp
suit on the plea that his prayer was
"privileged." The Judge could not un
derstand why a clergyman should not
be as resH)usihle for libel from the pul
pit as an editor Is for one sent out from
his sanctum, ami made his ruling ac
cordingly, with the result that the rev
erend gentleman was mulcted In a con
siderable suni for damage. This should
be a warning to those holy men who,
especially In the larger cltlesr urm to
consider It a duty to make personal at
tacks from their pulpits. This tear era

there exists a power by which Its lim

What was predicted several months
ago a. a possibility contingent upoB the
Oriental war seems now likely to Ite
realized far beyond expectations. Ixng
Ix-fore the close of the present war It
became apparent that the China of the
future must at least revolutionize her
military equipment upon modern lines.
If Japan succeeds In enforcing her
present terms of peace this wlU le the
least part of the alteration which is to
come upon the face of the Orient. The
island kingdom proposes nothing less
than the free opening of China to the
commerce and Immigration of the
world. If China acquiesces span will
have to be regarded not only as the au
thor of China's future progress, but as
the world's benefactor. She proposes to
unlock the enormous resources of the
Orient to modern business enterprise
ami invite the nations of the earth to
enjoy the benefits. In other words, the
kingdom which until but a few years
ago was estimated among the crudely
civilized nations Is making an effort
which in Its breadth of aim and Its lib
eral purpose will stand first among the
great national enterprise of the last
fifty years. The result of the endeavor,
if successful, would be the Inaugura
tion of nn era of progress and enter
prise in the most firmly rooted and
stuldKirnly conservative power on
earth. The terms demanded of China
are bitter, ami she may refuse to ac
cede to them. But if once Japan suc
ceeds in securing their acceptance the
life of the Orient will assume a differ
ent phase.

Birds cuu and sometimes do their
grand tour on the cheap, by attaching
themselves to a culling vessel and fol
lowing It to the different parts of the
world to which It Is bound.
A si-aman has described one of these
tours recently made by a pigeon. The
ship was I-lug In Portland Roads,
bound for the West Indies, and had
just weighed auchor. when a pigeon
was observed to settle on the main
topgallant yard.
When the ship stood out to sea.Mflster
Pigeon seemed to have lost his bear
ings, but the bird stuck to the rigging
and dwelt there while the vessel pro
ceeded on Its way, calling at the Ca
naries. Baibiidoea. Bermuda, and other
principal jmrta.
The pigeon flew ashore at each place
of stoppage to vlait the sights and xm
sibly hob-nob with the birds of the
locality, but always turned up before
the ship sailed. The sailors put hiui
food ou the maintop, which he ate
regularly, though he would not allow
tiie slightest approach to familiarity
ou the part of any member of the crew.
The ship experienced severe weather
on the homeward-bound trip, and by
the time it arrived at Portland the
bird looked a weather-beaten old mar
iner. He evidently recognized old En
gland again, for he at once flew ashore,
and although the vessel remained there
some weeks, no more was seen of the
pigeon, who bad spent six months on
bis travels over many thousands of

Faroo, N. D., .May l.-Deputy
Mar shal SchliuJer wired 3 o'clock yes
terday afternoon to Marshal Crouau
that there are 200 hostile Indians at
Langlaus, preparing to resist arrest of
half breeds rescued from the marshal
last Sunday. X umbers of citizens are
leaving St. John through fear thai their
houses would be burned by half breeds.
Sunday the marshal and deputy bad
a council with the Indians, who had
previously rescued a half breed charged
with cutting timber on government
land Jfrom arrest and told them they
had come there to arrest the parties
and that they would surely do it. Lit
tie Shell, chief of the Turtle Mountain
Indians, told them that the govern
ment had never paid the Indians for
the land And that be had a right to give
that permission, and that they would
not allow anyone to be arres'ed for
cutting under his order or with his
permission. The marshal reiterated
the statement that they had come to
make arrests and intended to do it
1 he Indians asked who they wanted
ana on being informed they called the
persons, and when they came in the
marshal read the warrant and under
took to arrest them, but the Indians
forcibly resisted. The marshal returned
to Fargo and wired the attorney-gen
eral for instructions.
The offense is slight at most. The
feeling is general among settler that
the seventy indictments against et'
tiers and others in that region are more
for the purpose of matting fees for the

London, May 1. There is a feeling
of indignation among the friends and
relatives of Miss Kmily Hall at Hales
owen, the home of the dead girl's fattier,
over the failure of the authorities in
Detroit, Mich., to take more active
measures in the case of the allege 1
victim of Hev. Jonathau Bell. Friends
of Miss Hall are trying to induce the
British government to move in the
matter. The ponce here cannot act, us
they have no official proof of the death
of the airl. A case of betayal does not
amount to a crime umecg there is proof
that the betrsyer connived with the
procuring of an abortion. The where
abouts of liev. Jonathan Bell is still
unknown. The police are satisfied
that he has committed suicide. Let
ters written by Miss Hall indicate that
Bel was In Detroit on January 10, and
that Miss Hall lelt Liverpool on
January 1 5. The police are making
inquiries, but the nature of tbeir inves
tigation is not known. They possess
a portrait of the dead girl. Miss Hall's
letters suggest that a woman con
nected with a religious movemmt in
Leeds proposed the girl's removal to
America. It is liksly that Home Sec
retary Asquith will be questioned iu
the bouse of commons regarding the

It is learned at the train that Attorney-General
Olney, in reply to requests

that he thought aposselnsufllcleut and
that a military escort was needed. De
puties claim that the maximum fees
allowed by law are already react ed for

ducement to stir up business. Jt is
the general opionion that arrests may
be made in this cssa without much

Washington, May 3 The Xlcara
guan Incident growing out of the
British occupation of C-orinto was pra
ctically and happily settled yesterday
seemingly through the good ollicers of
the SalvadoriHn minister to Great
Britain and France, who arrived in
London from Paris yesterday morning
snd bad an interview with Lord Kim
beny, the British foreign secretary. It
is understood that Ambassador Bay
Rrd was present at the meeting, al
though the statement of Sir Edward
Grey in the house of commons that the
United States had not suggested terms
for an amicable settlement would in
dicate that Mr. Bayard was only pre
sent as an auditor. The conference
between Lord Kimberly and Minister
M(diua,the muister from San Salvador I
reunited in a detinue airaugemeut of
terms for the stetlement of th trouble
at Corinto, the substance of which was
immediately cabled to Secretary Gresli
am by Mr. Bayard. In the dispatch
Mr. Hayard sdd thatGreat Britain had
accepted tne guarantee made by .Salva
dor for the payment of the indeiuity of
77,500 demanded by Grent Britain
hi the payment to be made by
Nicaragua hi London within a fort
night, and the British government
agreeing that as soon as Nicaragua con
tinued this promise to pay and in
formed the British admiral in charge
of the naval forces at Corinto of that
fact the admiral be would instructed to
withdraw not only the force of tnarues
which under command of Captain
French now hald possession of the cus
tom bouse and other government build
