When a young man is old enough to cast his tirst vote what he doesn't know alMiiit running the country isn't worth knowing. It may be that every college pro fessor needs a wife, but the question is. How can he support her in the ktylo to which slie has leen aeeus lomed? A court has decided that a man mst treat his mother-in-law with respect. Mighty few mothers-in-law aeed any order of the court to make the young man do the proper thing. Uut if China should get courage riiough to cry.

The fact is that the Hotith is growing rapidly. The white population of Mississippi, the banner negro State, is growing faster than the black. It is said that Egyptian and Turk ish unreins are lming demoralized by the fashion plates. The European "delineators'" tempt the plural wires of the eastern potentates to extrava gant expenditures for dress, aud it is becoming impossible for the poor kings and prf.iccft to keep more than one wife dressed iii the Parisian fashion. Iimtead of 'Jim wives, some of the old fellows are rinding it difficult to stip nrt two. it is said. The Mrue evil raue is producing what we Americans call a desirable reform in Utah. The modern mormon finds it too expensive to support a hunch of wives. He finda it cheaper to obey the law of monog ii my. The ashes of Chicago were not cold when teniorary places of business were provided and men were making contracts for the upbuilding of their warehouses, their stores and their homes. In a couple of years nearly u whoie of the burned district waa again covered. In Boston the lossea were much less and the local capital was greater. Baltimore la making ar rangements to rebuild her business center at once, and in a handsomer ii!"! more substantial manner than be fore. The tire in which granite crum bles and steel melts does not destroy the ground or the commercial advant ages of the city's location. Very much of the property of the people is beyond its reach, and their courage and their credit a very great part of the stock in trade of any community are alisoiutely proof against it , All over the land there is a dearth of schoolmistresses. Even in th' East, where women are superabundant and the schoolma'am was always not ed for her staying qualities, there Is now a cry for more teachers. School agencies say that never before were so few well-trained women instructors ob tainable. All give marriage as the enuse. Time was when the school mistress was a drug on the matri monial market. A woman put off as far as possible the evil day of enter ing the schoolroom, knowing that lt meant for bar a lonely life with no hope of marriage. "Old maid school teacher" waa the offensive phrase which labeled her fecial states. All that la now changed and the scbool mistress is having things fear own war. Hr college education, fear ra re tkm trips abroad, her leaderahip in dabs, have made her a moat deUght fal companion, fitted for any aoeUl (ta ttoo, the baa free scope for the de rfttopment of her talents and is natng bar ofpertitlsB to adnata.

The chairman of the Western Vul j seuger Association says the great ht crease in immigration during 11 3 war due largely to the inducements offerer , by the railroads to settler ou tin ; anu lands in the northwest, the wuth I and the far west. Nearly all thi : railway systems, it is said, have thcii ; agents in Ktiroiio drumming up Imim 1 grants. When the mi.-Mion of restrict ' b'g Immigration by imposing an edu i-ational niinliticnlion was In-fore tie last Congress representatives of sev eral large western roads were heard il opposition to it. They did not say that the proposed restriction would in terfere with the work the roads are d lug In planting settlers on their ow( lands or ou other unfilled lands in thi regions traveled by their lines. It wnt claimed then that the railroads wen hard put to it to get all the eommoi labor they needed and that it wouH be an iujiirv to them to cut off th Kuropemi supply in w hole or part. Th railroads do not feel so prosperous ai they did two years ago. They havi not the need of hilior they had then or which (heir officers said they had Immigration is stimulated now not b get lalior but to get settlers and alw to get the sums which they pay fo their transportation. It has been sur mised that as the steamship lines so licit immigration liecause they mak money out of it, so many railroads an governed by the same motive. 1 will lie admitted that an immigrsn' planted on a western farm Is a desir able acquisition. That is not neces sarily true of an immigrant who, whei he lauds, plunges into the orercrowdc slums of New York City and stayi tlo-re either localise Ik prefers to Ftiij or has not the money with which ti make his escape, only a small pro portion of the steerage passengers o) V.(l appear to have found their way t the far west. While 4"S fettled it Colorado, 2.4 .TS in Texas, 0.007 it Washington, and '.'.M in Oregon. 2.V1. 4-15 made their homes in New York 177.1W in Pennsylvania, and m,7,-7 i Massachusetts. There came to Illinoii sj,r,7S but of those who remained her the larger unrulier probably settled in Chicago. If last year's increase if immigration was dup largely to tin efforts of the railroads the roads die much more to increase the populatiof of the great cities of the east than r. the rural districts of the west. It maj be that their efforts brought more un desirable than desirable immigrants It this country. Itailroads and steamshif companies should let the matter of im migration regulate itself and not at tpmpt to stimulate and direct it I promote Ihelr selfish interests. Taking No Chances. A new reason "why men do not g to church'' has recently been discovem by an English clergyman. Walkiiq along a lane one day, says Tlt-Bll the village rector noticed an old mac ahead of him. Seeing that It was on of his congregation who had not lieer to church of late, the vicar hurried antf soon caught up with hltn. Hallo, John:" said he. "How is ii that I haven't seen you at church late lyr At first the rector could get noth'uij out of him. but after a little persnasio the parishioner said: "Well, zfr. It lie your youngest dar ter, Nelly, I be afeard of." "What, afraid of Nelly, a girl nineteen, and only Jut returned frou school;-' "Y'es, air.

' Telling of the discouraging circtmi stiiiii-cs under which he labored, hf concluded by asking if there was no one in the congregation who would do nate the amount. After vainly brinj ing into play every word in bis vocabu lary one memlx-r of the congregation arose and said: "Rather than see yotil plans defeated. I will give you ?ilC of the amount." Jubilant at his success and wishing to pay a flattering compliment to th donor the pus tor said: "Bless you. brother; may your business Increast many fold during the coming year." rl that a smile crept over the fac of every one present, for the donatot was no less than one of the eity'i w t-ii-kimwn undi-rta Ucrs.
