many of our people, a leading London
paper deplores tho fact that this gov
ernment has definitely abandoned the
ideals set up by the founders of this
ropubllc, and it characterizes the new
policy as "a curious outcomo of one
hundred and twenty years of triumph
ant democracy." It is no longer the
shadow of imperialism that darkens
the horizon. Imperialism is here.

president and congress, and flatter our
selves tbat in the pcoplo resides tho
power. Tho overthrow of the Roman
republic came not when Caesar-crossed
the Rubicon and assumed tho imperial
purple, but when Rome embarked on a
policy of conquest and ruled subject
peoples by arbitrary power. Lincoln
said that this nation could not exist
half slave and half free. Neither can

The Fourth of July has had a glor
ious significance. Tho Declaration of
Independence has been a continuous
protest against despotism, and has
voiced the hope of humanity for final
deliverance from the thraldom of arbi
trary power. How shall we answer, it
to the generations to come If we now
abandon our glorious Inheritance be
queathed to us from tho fathers, for
tho sake of joining in the ignoble
scramble of the natibns for tho waste
places of the earth?
How to Catch Mosquitoes.
"But few persons know it, but it Is a
fact nevertheless, that a mosquito Can
be caught without any sort of trou
ble,", said a gentleman who has al
ways manifested a deep concern in
anopholes, culex, and all tho other
winged pests belonging to the tribe.
"It is the easiest thing in Che world to
do, and while the discovery may not
solve the whole mosquito problem, and
may haye no particular bearing on tho
dissemination of germs by these flying
peddlers, it will certainly console the
fellow who lives in the mosquito belt
to know that he can. catch anopholes
culex or any of the. others, just for
the trying. Two. things are. absolutely
necessary In order to make tbe cap
ture. The mosquito must be allowed
to light on one's body. Then he must
be allowed to unshcath his labium,
and begin his boring for oil, .blood or
whatever his appetite may crave.
When tho mosquito gets into this po
sition he is absolutely at the mercy of
the fellow whoso corpuscles ho is seek
ing to rifle. One may make a prisoner
of the mosquito without stirring a-
hand or moving a musclo. How? Sim
ply quit breathing. Sit still and hold
your breath. Tho mosquito, with all
tho forco of his wings and legs could
not break away from tho spot whero
ho had sunk his beak, and the only
romaining thing to do would bo to slip
one's fingers up under his wings, get a
good, firm grip on his back and then
swat him in tho head, or slay him in
some other way, Tho method is very
simple when wo come to think of it.
While we breathe, of course, tho .pores
of tho skin are kept open, If tho body Is
in a normal condition. This condi
tion, of course, is of great aid to tho
mosquito, although his lanco is prob
ably keen enough for him to break
into a corpuscle without this assist
ance. When wo stop breathing the
pores close, tho holo in which tho
mosquito has shoved its beak con
tracts, and It is impossible for him to
break away. Simple, isn't it? Try it.
It will work like a charm If you go
about it in tho right way, and besides
It is good sport, even If one does havp
to give enough of one's blood for a
mosquito's meal." New Orleans
American Business Hetliods.
"When I come to London," said a
leading American man of business, "I
find your bankers and merchants stroll
Into their offices between 10 and 11 in
tho morning. I am at my desk at 7,"
said he, "and by noon i have com
pleted fifty transactions by telephone."
Telegrams, in fact, are no longer up to
date in the United ' States, and few
busy men ever use a pen except to
sign "their names. They do not- oven
dictate their letters. They spctfk into
a phonograph and have tnoir message
typewritten from the instrument. Life
in the States is one perpetual whirl of
telephones, telesemes, phonographs,
electric bells, motors, lifts and auto
matic instruments. To mo such a life
would not be worth living, and the
mere sight of It Is Incompatible with
continuous thought. But business
seems to be dono in that way. And I
did not learn that tho percentage of
suicide or insanity was very seriously
increased by these truly raaddonlng In
