LATEST SCIENTIFIC MARVEL
Machines That Weigh Thoughts and
THE MARRYING AGE.
The dictum of Gov. Wnrfleld that
girls should not marry until they are
twenty-six has naturally caused con
Bldcrable discussion among those
most Interested the girls themselves,
their parents, and the young men
"who do not want to wnlt (or a bride
until she Is verging on old-maidenhood.
Tho first Question of Interest Is a
mntter of fact: Aro our girls gener
ally marrying nt too early an ago?
Somo light Is thrown on this matter
by City Registrar McGlonan of Bos
ton In tho Olobo of that city. Ho
Bbows that In tho year 1902 out of
C.172 brides, only 120. or a llttlo moro
than 2 per cent, were less than eight
een. While more than half tho total
number were under twenty-five, "yet
4,180, more than two-thirds of the
wholo number of tirldcs, wero mar
ried between the ages of twenty and
These figures, the Registrar thinks,
"do not Indicate that all girls aro
marrying at an abnormally early
age." Other writers on the subject
testify that marriage Is entered Into
by both sexes at later ago than In
former generations In this country.
There aro many reasons for thlB. The
growing lndependenco of women, the
more extensive fields for their em
ployment, tho Importance given to
education, opernto to defer marriage,
as the Increased cost of the wedded
state deters mnny young men until
they can "afford it." New York
NO INTERVENTION LIKELY.
A late dispatch from Paris stated
that there Is a strong and growing of
ficial feeling there that France, Great
Britain and tho United States should
'endeavor to avert tho danger of
Japan's victory being bo great that
she may become tho dominating pow
er In tho far cast. It Is quite likely
that, French sympathy being with
Russia, there Is such a feeling as re
ported, but It will havo no Influence
cither In England or the United
States, the people of both these coun
tries having no disposition or desire
to Interpose any obstacle to Japan's
success. Neither Is thero any appre
hension in the English-speaking coun
tries as to Japan becoming the domi
nating power In tho far cast. Omaha
DEATH AND THE FEAR OF IT.
George Meredith Is reported to
have said In a recent Interview thnt
doctors and parsons aro doing harm
by Increasing tho fear of death and
making tho English less manly. "No
one," he added, "should consider
death or think of It as worse than go
ing from ono room to another." For
his own part, he says, ho "hopes he
Bho-11 die with a good laugh."
Thero Is no objection to Joyous
ncss, even on the solemn occasion of
passing from this form of oxlsteuco to
ono of which wo know nothing except
by faith. All tho same, a frivolous
laugh seems to bo an affection of cour
ago rather than genuine heroism.
Death Is no Joko for Uiose who go or
for those who are left Hehlnd. Ono
may say with the trust of Emerson:
"The God who has led me so gracious
ly all through thlB life I can trust
wherever ho leads me." Syracuse
FAVORS FROM DESPOTI8M.
When we think of tho power to do
good which rests with n despot like
the emperor of Russia and reflect that
under a government of the people re
forms nre often slow and tedious and
attended by much confusion and strlfo
we may bo tempted to extol the ad
vantages of despotism over democ
racy. Wo compare tho freedom of
the serfs of Russia by a stroke of tho
pen with the long and bloody war that
resulted from slavery in this country.
The fallacy of such reflections, how
ever, lies In tho assumption that des
potism will continue to produce phi
lanthropists. The truth Is that tho
despot who succeeds tho present deB
pot on tho throne of Russia may, by
inclination or tho force of reactionary
sentiment among tho ruling classes,
overthrow all tho benevolence of his
predecessor. Boston Globe.
RCGULATE COUNTRY'S CLOCKS.
What time Is It? By what system
aro the clocks hero and elsewhere
regulated? Chicago and all points In
tho United States east of tho Rjpcky
mountnlnd get tholr tlmo every day
from tho government observatory at
Washington. Tho territory west of
tho Rockies Is served tho Barao way
by tho observatory at Maro Island
navy yard, near San Francisco. These
signals aro sent out when It is noon at
Washington and, three hours later,
when It Is noon at San Francisco.
Chicago gets Its tlmo at 11 o'clock
thero, when It Is noon at Washington.
Tho signal begins at five minutes be
fore tho hour. Then tho sounders in
the telegraph offices connected with
jyiiRhlngton begin to tick off tho sec
onds, with breaks of tfvo secomis at
the end of each mlnuto and a break
of ten seconds before the end of tho
flf.h and final minute, and then
comes tho noon signal.

SWIMMING THE BEST EXERCISE.
A series of experiments, conduction
by Dr. Philip B. Hawk, demonstrator
of physiological chemistry at the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, has proved
that swimming Is the most boneflclal
exercise, reports tho World's Worn.
He visited tho dressing-rooms at th
nthlctlc field and, Immediately before
each athlete left for his cxerclso,
drew blood from him by means of the
regularly prepared sterllo needle.
Then, when tho athlote returned to
tho dressing-room, after running,
jumping, polo vaulting or engaging In
water polo, the needle would again
bo brought Into play and a second
snmple of blood drawn. Analysis ol
the blood, to discover how far each
exercise Increased tho number of rod
corpuscles, showed that water polo
and other forms of swimming result'
ed In the largest Increase. The swim
mlng exercises wero thus shown to be
the most beneficial, for the greater
tho number of red corpuscles, the
richer the blood. Swimming result
ed In an average Increase of 21 pel
cent, a against 17 per cent for tbc

That the sun Is slowly cooling oil
has come to be nn accepted theory,
but how gradually Is the difficult
question to find out. The earth Is
slowly cooling off, too, but we have
no Instruments correctly to measure
that fact. Ajid yet we know that a
permanent change of only a few
points in the thermometer would
soon affect all life, animal and vege
The dependence of this globe upon
the sun Is well understood and the
sun Is constantly presenting new
mysteries to be solved.
And yet thero is probably no cause
for alarm. The sun has served past
generations so well thnt they have
worshiped it and humanity will flour

ON UNCONSCIOUS COURTESY.
In the "Joy of Living" papers ap
pearlng In the Delineator Llhio Ham
llton French, In the September num
ber, writes on unconscious expression
in childhood, and speaking of tho ne
cessity of implanting precepts ol
courtesy and hospitality whllo tnc
child is young, gives this apt and
amusing Illustration: "There is an old
story told of a lady of rank who mar
ried her footman. She managed tc
train him into the semblance of o
gentleman, and his appearance In the
drawing-room wns not bad. Ho be
haved well, and with propriety ex
cept when he heard a bell ring! Then
he started. To Jump when bells wen
rung had been u second nature with.
him as a footman. It is always the
training in early nnd impressionable
years that makes the second naturi
of the mature. The full-grown man
or woman can, of course, begin a self
training, as this lady of rank began n
training of her husband. Tho task
is moro difficult. Even tho coIIb ol
tho brain get Into ways of respond
Ing to certain Impressions, and al
though a thought held to will trans
form tho very nature of man, there
ought to bo no need of a transforma
tion in our manners. They should be
formed In the early, pliant, receptive
days of childhood."
INCENTIVES TO WAR.
Every formal treaty or arbitration
will aid wonderfully In molding public
sentiment against war and smoothing
the way to other similar treaties. The
example of tho great militant coun
tries will have a persuasive Influence
upon the small nations which are now
taxing their slender resources to main
tain armies and navies to be anni
hilated in the first encounter with a
stronger power. Iand hunger, cm-plre-bulldlng,
nbsorption of weak coun
tries by tho powerful, the combative
savage, fighting Instinct surviving civ
ilization, traditional racial hate, mili
tary glory, It must be adnjtted, give
n tremendous Impetus to war. These
incentives to grave international con
flicts cannot be removed at once. It
must be a gradual process. Philadel
RIGHTS OF HUSBAND AND WIFE.
Without inviting discussion of this
thorny question, I may say that my
own opinion Is supposing anybody
wants it thnt a husband's rights arc
what ho can got. My viow of a wife's
rights is tho same. Whether It is
wUe for either party to get all that
he (or sho) can Is a question of ex
pediency, to be decided according to
circumstances and individual Inclina
tion. The governing principle of tho
situation Is that when two people ride
tho same horse ono must ride behind.
Tho question, therefore, whenever a
conflict nrlsos, is whether tho front
seat Is worth fighting about, und, If so,
bow long and how hard. London

Amongst the wonders of modern
science must surely be Included cer
tain Instruments and machines lately
Invented, by means of which senses
and thoughts can be measured and
weighed, and hitherto msterlous se
crets connected with the human brain
revealed. In fact, so remarkable have
been th losults of experiments with
these machines that doctors and
scientists of both the European and
American continents have united In
declaring them to bo the most linpor
tutit discoveries of the age.
Perhaps thv most Interesting of
those Instruments Is one by which the

speed and duration of thought can bo
determined. Tho subject hits with his
bund on an electric switch, connected
with an electric clock, which measures
the smallust fraction of a second. Im
mediately In front Is nn upright metnl
tube, Inside of which runs a slender
rod of stool, while directly opposite
the evos of the subject Is an opening
In the tube. As the rod slides down
the Interior of the tube a white disc
appeals at the orifice. The exact sec
ond this appears the rod touches a
spring at the bottom of the tube and
the clock Is set In motion. Tho sub
ject Is Instructed to stop the clock
Just iin soon as the white disc appears.
This he doM for thirty tlmoB. The
length of time required for him to do
this Is noted, and tin average struck.
This average Is called his physiolog
The subject Is then told that the
disc appearing may be a colored one.
If so, lie Is to stop the clock. Should
It be white, however, he Is to pay no
attention to It. The time required to
stop the clock nt the appearance of
a colored disc Is always longer, and
when the physiological time Is sub
tracted from the longer time the re
mainder is called the mental time or,
'in other words, It represents the time
of tho object fixing Itself on the eye,
its passage along tho optic nervo to
the brain, and the action of tho brain
and impulse of the will directing,
through the nerves, the finger to act.
In addition to measuring the speed

"President Grant was not accredit

the Arlington hotel to the late Gen.
William W. Belknap, twice secretary

anecdote occurs to me In which Grant
was not far from the point. He was
speaking of Adjutant General Town

tno cub reporter secured n "flit" on

Danville wns n friend of the paper
nnd n good fellow. When tho cub
found him at the Burrls Hotel, ho ttald
yes, In Bnrkls-ls-wlllln' mood, and
summoned n stenographer. Whllo Uio
stcno mnde ourloycuos, tho cub Bat
on tho foot or a sofa In Danville's
room nnd wondered when he would
he grout nnd Influential like Danville.
Tho speech being transcribed, tho
reporter proceeded tq Interject Into
the copy lit divers closing paragraphs
"Demonstration in tho nudlenco!"
"Uproarious commendation!" and
tho like. Then ho handed In tho man

Now Danville was n much admired
speaker, but a lessor light than either

talked long and dryly nt tho evening
"rally." Despite the fact that many
people had driven In Irom the rural
districts to hoar Danville, who wan
last on tho program, It was soon ovl
dent that ho would not bo heard ex
cept very briefly. Thus there wan
uneasiness In tho niuwoutod thron
and disintegration ot the compact
body as the tarmers "pulled their
freight" for pastoral haunts.
To further embarrass, thero wa8 to
be a politicians' banquet at tho load

this must not bo dolnycd too long.
Danville, much chagrined, but tact
ful, settled the fidgeting by calmly
referring to tho lateness of tho hour
and withdrawing to his hotel.
Tho cub reporter, busier than bo
hnd ever boon with tho CroHS Roads
Advocate, was throwing off copy In
bales, whllo all this was happening.
On his way to the hotel, howuver, ho
stopped In tho office of tho Fox Horn
and hastily shouting up the tubo to
tho city editor, to revise "that Dan

Ho was visibly excited over his po
litical afllliatlous when he returned to
tho ofllce, but he obeyed Instruction
when tho city editor blurted:
