recent action of the French ( Jovcrn-
ment allows how a school-lilstory dls-
| iutc may become almost au Interna
tional complication. The British press
inn ofteu complained that French
rontlis were taught history from a

used In all French public schools for

This Anglo-Freiicb epI.Hodc and the re-
cliirocul gniinbllugH of Union and Con
federate veterans over our school books
Illustrate the ( llllk'iilty of writing his
tory to please nurvlvorn of both parties
to any great controversy. The disput
ants over school histories waste their
time and the public's. If mi author evi
dently Intends to be fair , and especially
If he keeps before himself and his read
ers the rule that acts of great men must
be Judged by the standards of their
time , then censures of his opinion arc
Idle. Time and experience will correct
any errors Into which he may have tin-
conselotiHly led the youthful mind. Lt
Is useless to demand perfection of
human nature , and the critics of the
school history's opinions- distin
guished from Its statements nf fact ,
might as well concede the futility of
their censures.
There arc. two mod OH of making the
Mississippi river of greater value for
traflle purposes than It IsJ now. One
of them Is the expenditure of largo
sums by the general government for
the Improvement of navigation and for
the maintenance of Improvements
when made. The other mode Is the In
troduction by private enterprise of ves
sels which can be used for tralllc purl -
l > 0 ! < e.s without the necessity , for exten
sive and costly Improvement works.
The latter mode , If feasible , Is decided
ly the butter of the two. ( iovfrnment i
aid never should be Invoked where prl-
vate enterprise Is competent to do the
work. Some St. Louis capitalists are
endeavoring to tlnd out whether the
whalcbaek boats , which have been a
success on the great lakes , can be u.iod
to advantage for freight purposes on
the .Mississippi. One of these boats ,
having a minimum draft of eight feet ,
has recently nituld a trial trip to New
Orleans. It had a cargo of ' 15,000 bush
els of wheat and corn and considerable
general merchandise. Everything went
smoothly on this llrst trip and the men
who are Interested In the .scheme are
much encouraged , They nre firm in
the faith that by using vessels so con
structed as to draw little water , while
carrying large cargoes , the great Western -
ern river will be as serviceable for
tratllc purposes as It once was. The
business men of New Orleans would
like to see this happen , and the products -
ducts of the agricultural regions of the
West seeking the ocean by way of their
city. If this Ht. Louis experiment
stands the test of time , and It Is found
prolltablc to ship Western products via
the Mississippi without expending
tens of millions of dollars of public
money more cheaply and conveniently
than they can be shipped by any other
route , then the producers nnd consum
ers of the products In question will
be gainers. If New Orleans gets a
greater share of the export trade It
will be beeause thnt city Is fairly en
titled to It.
Two C'onvei'tH.
No man , It Is said , Is a hero to his
valet The association IH too Intimate.
Hut a man may bo a hero to his re
porter. There Is a story of two
brothers , shorthand reporters , work
ing on different newspapers , one of the
brothers being a Uepubllcan and the
other a Democrat , which affords an
illustration of this truth.
Tile Republican reporter was detail
ed , during the recent presidential ciun- follow Mr. Hryan wherever he
went , ami to lake full notes of his
speeches , sending the same by wire
every night to I lie paper on which he
was emnloYod.
T < the Democrat reporter was given
a similar assignment , except that he
was to accompany Governor Uoose- t
velt. whose speeches he was to report L
In full.
After the campaign was over the
two brothers met at the paternal man
sion for the llrst time In many weeks ,
and ihfy looked rather sheepishly at
caeli other.
" \Vell. ( Jeorge , " said one. of the two ,
"after campaigning with Hryan three
months I've come back a Democrat.
I'm of jour politic * now. "
"Not a bit of It ! " returned the other.
"I've been campaigning with Itoose-
velt , and I've come back a Ucpuhll-
can ! "
In One Word.
It Is by no means necessary for a
man always to enter Into an elaborate
explanation , of his feelings In order to
make them clear.
"What's the name of the fellow who
wrote the tune of that coon song we've
just been favored with ? " asked one
man of another al a meeting of the
Amateur Composers' Club
" .limes , " returned the other man.
"James .lones , I believe. Frank Wai
ley wrote the words. "
"Ah , I was about to ask the name of
.tones' accomplice , " was the rejoinder.
Driest Spin on
I'ayta , Peru , about live degrees
south of the eipiaior , has the reputa-
lon of being the driest spot on the
globe. On an average a shower of rain
occurs at Payta only onue In two
years. Hut the Interval between show-
em Is often much longer. Yet In that
arid climate seven species of annual
plants manage to e.\lst. and the na
tives earn a livelihood by growing u
species of cotton , whose long roots
flnd moisture In the bed of a dried up
river. This cotton Is readily marketed.

5Ir . Samuel G. Dyer Tells n Hiirroir-
lilt : Talc of SnflcrltiK.
MeCnrron , Mich. , April 8. ( Special. )
Mrs , Samuel G. Dyer of this place
lias given the following Interesting let
ter for publication :
"For years I suffered Intense pain In
the region of the heart. I doctored with
the best physicians. Some of them
would relieve mo for n short time , but
the pain always returned. My heart
was ho bad that I would have to sit up
In bed for hours , to get relief. I would
; lit1 awake almost all night. I am OU
years of ngo , and no one cnn under
stand how much I suffered -with this
Heart Trouble.
"About n year ago I lienrd of Ubdd'd
Kidney Pills , and commenced to mo
them. From the llrst my condition 1m-
proved. The pain in my heart gradu
ally grew less , and my general health
much better , and now 1 can bay posl-
lively that 1 ani entirely cured. I can
sleep H night , nnd enjoy almost ix-r-
feet health. I thank God for the cure
that has come to me through the use
' of Dodd's Kidney Tills.
1 "I have thought long over the matter
' of giving this letter for publication ,
and nni doing so now without any so
licitation whatever , and simply because
I feel It to be my duty to express the
1 profound gratitude 1 feel for my re
covery , nnd to let others who may bo
suffering as I was know how they may
flnd a cure. I know that nothing else
I but Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me , beI I
I cause I have taken no other medicine
for over a year. 1 fed better now than
I have for ninny years , nnd It Is all due
( to the.uso of Dodd's Kidney 1'llls. "
i Mrs. Dyer's case nnd Its cure has at-
traded a great deal of attention , nnd
her letter Is a splendid tribute to the
curative properties of Dodd's Kidney
