The inhabitants of the Isle of Tines
are uncertain as to their nntional sta

have been detached from the province

machinery of administration, other
than that of the little town on the

umber of American settlers on the
island who object to their condition.

It seems that Russia's world-plans con

But W'eyler is disgruntled. Uasves that
such performances weaken his monop
oly on the applause of the army. II
has no use for a king that does not
breakfast lu bed, and a king that or
ders the army out without consulting
its head leads him to traitorous
thoughts. But the world w ill bid Al
fonso good fortune in bis ambition to
find out what a king in Spain can do.
It means that he may the sooner and
the more thoroughly learu what the
King of Spain should not do. For Spali:

the people and their needs one that
will command and compel obedience,
and one that will stop the plundering

The rich young man who will net
work and who spends unprofitably and
foolishly tbe money his laborious fa
ther left him is one of the favorite
topics of the stern moralist, who usu
ally has little to spend and who thinks
he spends his little wisely. A pro
fessor at tbe University of Chicago en
livened and humanized his lecture on
the dry subject of "Kent and Interest"
by holding up to scorn the Idle and ex
travagant sons of the rich. He brand
ed them as "parasites," who should
not be allowed to draw tbelr interest.
"It Is," said the professor, "a crime to
society to pay them Interest fa money
which they did not earn and which
they are not using for the good of the
community" as the "good of the com
munity" Is understood by political
economists. They reprobate all ex
penditure for cakes and ale, fast
horses, yachts and costly social func
tions. The "crime against society"
which the professor deprecates is as
old as society itself and will last as
long as It does. Unless the possessor
of unearned wealth Is so madly extrav
agant as to warrant the appointment
of a guardian, there Is no way In which
he can be deprived of his interest and
forced to abandon the life of a drone
for that of a toiler. The world must
take the sons of rich men as it fiuds
them tbe bad with the good. When
the unimpassioned statistician looks
the' matter up he will find that the
percentage of the favorites of for
tune who do not work and only
sK-nd is small, and the percent
age of the sons of rich men who t
rentage of tbe sons nf rich men who
make a proper use of their money is
large. The good which the latter do
far exceeds the evil the former do. Un
fortunately, the son of a rich man at
his office desk is not so conspicuous as
the son of the rich man driving furi
ously In his "sea green automobile"
and the one gets liltle praise, while the
other gets much censure. Tbe "para
sites" have their uses. What would
the men who wish to point morals and
adorn tales do without them? When
the preacher, the censor of manners, or
the political economic who objects to

revolution in farm life, is in progress.
The rural telephone, rural free deliv
ery, and the troll-y line are bringing
so many of the advantages of t' town
to the country that the rising genera
tion will never be able to realize h(w
its fathers lived. The older men can
still recall the old farm village, remote
from railways, where year after year
everything centered about the petty a'
fairs of an isolated community, neigh
bor's children marrying . neighbor's
children, and making new homesteads
on the larders of the old. A day's
Journey by team was an extended t'lp,
and a visit to the city an event of wide
spread interest. The railway and tele
graph ruined this old-time village. But
the revolution they worked a gciera
tlon ago was nothing compared !o the
revolution that Is now going on. a revo
lution tbat will In ten years make tbe
farm tbe ideal home of the well-to-do.
To-day more than 4.000,000 farmers In
the United States have dally mall do

port of tbe Assistant Postmaster Gen

are sending out an average of two let

It was ridiculed as a fad, a new means
of squandering the public money. It Is
now In operation In every State in the
Union excepting Montana, where
mountainous roads thus far have made
It Impracticable. Even in Alaska there
Is a route from Nome to Gold Itlver.
The 'department estimates that with
the present month 8,000 routes will be
In operation, averaging twenty-iive
miles In length. It is safe to predict
that during President Roosevelt's term j
every thickly settled farm section will
have Its dally mall. The rural tele
phone Is not so far along as rural de
livery, and the trolley line Is only being
experimented with In tbe West. But
who will venture tbat In ten years all

the other day, when he was asked:

"Have you read the history of the

It is said that Senator Jones, of Ar

to see what the Massachu

With the prominence that is being
given In many quarters to the sub

note that In 1X70. according to the last
census, "JO. per cent of all the opera

children, while In l:x the number of
youthful workers had diminished to
9.8 per cent. The decrease took place
between 1870 and 110. Wwe the lat

Have Never Rendered Any Bills fo

Not one of the seven local doctors wh

year, says a Buffalo correspondent o
the New York Tribune, has received
any compensation thus far. Nelthet
has any of them any official or direct
knowledge that he will get any com

to the contrary, none of the physician
ever submitted bills for services, ano
the entire subject of compensation waf
left wholly to the Government. In th
long time that has elapsed no Govern

the doctors on the matter. Tbe local
