Woman is suddenly plunged into that
perfection of misery , the BLUES , It is
ft sad picture. It is usually this way :
She has been feeling " out of sorts "
for some time ; head has ached and
back also ; has slept poorly , been quite
nervous , and nearly fainted once or
twice ; head dizzy , and heart-beats very
fast ; then that bearing-down feeling- ,
and during her menstrual period she is
exceedingly despondent. Nothing
pleases her. Her doctor says : " Cheer
tip : you have dyspepsia ; you will be
all right soon. "
But she doesn't get " all right , " and
hope vanishes ; then come the brood- '
incr , morbid , melancholy , everlasting
Don't "wait until your sufferings have
driven you o despair , with your nerves

table Compound. See what it did for

eral Roger Hanson , C.S. A. She writes :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham :
" I cannot tell you with pen and ink what
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
has done for me. I suffered with female
troubles , extreme lassitude , ' t&e blues , '
nervousness and that all-gone fealing. I was
advised to try Lydia E. Pmkhrun's vegetable

derangement , but it has restored me to perfect
health and.strength. . The buoyancy of my
younger days has returned , and I do not sui

Abusing the Flag.
HERE are two kinds of abuse of the flag , and
both are objectionable. One abuse consists in
using the flag to advertise goods , enterprises or
occasionsrithout arousing a wholesome pat
riotism. Against this form of misuse the Amer
ican people have raised their voices in emphatic
and effective protest. But there is another
abuse Tfhich arises from an improper conception of public
duty , and such a case occurred the other day in Minnesota.
There has been a local agitation around the city of Hutch-
Inson against Sunday baseball , but no court processes have
availed to prevent the games , the managers of the sport
having won their cases. Finally , aroused to a pitch of
high Indignation , a woman , who is prominent in the com
munity , sought to put an end to the practice by unusual
methods. She attended a Sunday game with a large flag
draped around her gown , displaying a placard with the
words : "To attack the flag of the United States while it is
being used in the enforcement of law is , according to the
statutes , high treason. " When the game was started she
advanced to the center of the diamond and stationed her
self , thus attired , between the pitcher and the batsman , in
an effort to have the flag hit by the ball. After a ridicu
lous performance , the players trying to avoid striking her ,
and she dodging to and fro In ordor to get in the line of
fire , the spectators , tiring of the unusual sport , took a hand
and swarmed into the field , surrounding the determined
woman and forcing her off the field. The game then pro
ceeded without molestation. This woman's purpose was
to enlist the federal authorities in the crusade against the
Sunday ball players , butof course , she would have failed
to do soBeven if she had succeeded in getting the flag hat
by a ball. In thus Invoking the aid of the national emblem
she made not only herself , but to some degree the flag
itself , ridiculous. Washington Star.
New Anti-Trust Decision.
N accordance with Attorney General Moody's
decision that the government may take rebates
1 I from railroads transporting material or ma
chinery to be used on government works Sec
retary Hitchcock will accept reduced rates
from all common carriers willing to give them
" " " " ' in connection with the contracts for irrigation
dams and other constructions in the arid regions. In the
Attorney General's opinion , however , the right of public
authorities , including those of States and municipalities , to
accept rebates is dependent upon the fact that govern
mental works , as roads , water supply systems , etc. , are
not competitive. If a city or State or the United States-
should enter upon a commercial enterprise , as the refine
ment and sale of petroleum , for Instance , the rule as to
equality of rates to all shippers for like service would
When Kansas shall get its projected oil refinery agoing
the State government would be nnder legal compulsion to
pay the published rates for shipping and distributing the
product. So would the Standard Oil Company , to be sure ;
but this concern could dodge the law by securing secret
concessions from the railways , whereas the State , which
must conduct Its business above board , could not. Some-
tow the anti-trust decision of President Roosevelt's admin
istration seems to redound mainly to the advantage of the
The Panama Canal and the Jap.
HE prospect of this country's being flooded
by a tide of Japanese coolie labor brought over
in thousands to work on the Panama Canal , is
anything but assuring. It is thought the Japs
that come over will never go back , but will find
their way into our Southern States and spread
throughout the whole country.
It Is a problem affecting American labor much more
Intimately than does even the proposition of the canal com-
FISHERIES OF JAPAN.
In Many Bcapects They Take First
Hank Over Tlioae ot Other Nations.
The fisheries of Japan are less valu
able than those of several other coun
tries , but th&y take first rank over
those of all other nations (1) ( ) in the
actual number of people making a live
lihood thereby ; (2) ( ) in the relative num
ber of persons engaged in and depend
ent on the industry ; (3) ( ) in the quanti
ty of products taken annually from
the water ; (4) ( ) In the relative Impor
tance of fishery products in the domes
tic economy j\u ) in the ingenuity and
skilf shown by the people in devising
and using fishing appliances and pre
paring the catch for vise ; ( G ) in the ex
tent to which all kinds of water prod
ucts are utilized ; (7) ) in the extent to
which the fisheries of foreign countries
have been studied and the best meth
ods adaptc-d to home conditions ; (8) ( ) In
the extent to which agriculture has
been carried ; (9) ( ) in the zeal and Intelli
gence displayed by the government in
promoting the developmc-ut of the fish
eries and the welfare of the fishing
From the earliest times down to the
present day , fishing has supplied the
staple animal foods and a largo por
tion of the vegetable and mineral
foods consumed in Japan , andnone of
the other great powers is now so de
pendent on the water for subsistence.
Bo Important are water products and
BO numerous are their kinds and the
methods of preparation , that I venture
the assertion , from what I have seen
of domestic life in Japan , that every
day In every Japanese family some
form of fishery food is served I am
almost ready to say at every meal.
The Japanese fishermen as a class
are hardy , skillful , energetic , sober ,
self-reliant , to which qualities is super-
atlded a spirit of intense bravery and
patriotism , which makes them invalu
able , indeed indispensable , in the crisis
through which Japan Is now passing.
With ingenuity and deftness which , it
eems to me , are unsurpassed by any
other people , the Japanese have de
vised apparatus and developed meth
ods which centuries ago brought their
fisheries to a very high degree of ef
fectiveness ; but not content with this ,
they Lave within our own time super-
mission to purchase its ships and supplies abroad. The one
might force a reduction in the price of. certain products of
American labor , but the other would cause demoralization
in the price of American labor itself.
If half that is said of the efficiency and quickness of the
Jap coolies be true they would be dangerous competitors In
the labor markets of this country. They can live a year
on what would not keep an American family a month. And
they are not content to remain inmenial employment , but
rapidly perfect themselves in skilled labor and obtain high
There is no law to keep them out , and it is not likely
that Uncle Sam , since Japan-has become so great a power
.in the world , will care to inaugurate any policy of ex
Just at present the Japanese government Itself has the
matter under consideration. A special Japanese commission
to investigate climatic and labor conditious on the isthmus
and report upon the advisability of encouraging subjects
of the Mikado to seek employment there has finished its
Inquiry , but has not yet made its report.
There are now between 7,000 and 8,000 government em
ployes in the zone , but the number of Japanese among
them is not given. So far the commissioners have depended
chiefly upon the native and Jamaican negro , who is unsat
isfactory. The gate is wide open to the Jap. Indianapolis
Y the new law which has been adopted In
France for the regulation of life insurance
companies and associations , the writing of ton
tine insurance Is apparently prohibited that
is , it appears to be made impossible because
an accounting of the profits , so far at least as
French policy-holders are concerned , is made
compulsory each year. There is not a little reason for
believing that this is a proper precaution for the French
government to take. Our own State has never justified
tontine Insurance that is , it has not permitted companies
inaugurated under its laws to issue policies of this kind ,
but it has not considered it advisable to prohibit com
panies incorporated under the laws of other States from
Issuing these policies through their Massachusetts agen
cies. Tho ground taken by the State of Massachusetts in
this prohibitory action has been that tontine Insurance was
contrary to public policy , in that it was a species of gam
bling where the gains went to those who were so for
tunate as to live , and the losses to the estates of those
who were so unfortunate as to die , or who were com
pelled by adverse circumstances to permit their policies to
lapse. Boston Herald.
Why Germany Has No Tramps.
0-DAY the lot of the laboring man in Germany
is In many respects better than that of ours.
The German state recognizes the right of every
man to live we do not. When the German
laborer becomes old or feeble the state pensions
him honorably. In Germany the laboring man
can ride on the electric cars 'for two cents we
pay five. German cities have public baths , public laundry
establishments , big parks , free concerts and many other
features which soften poverty although they may not re
The corollary to this is that the Emperor permits no
tramps to terrorize his highways. The police is organized
for rural patrol as well as city work , and every loafer is
stopped and made to give an account of himself. In Eng
land vagrancy has been a public nuisance for'generations
with us it has become of late years almost a public danger.
Germany has no tramps. The man who is without work In
Germany finds no inducement to remain idle. A paternal
government sets him to such hard work that the would-be
unemployed finds it decidedly to his interest to seek some
other employment as soon as possible. National Magazine.
imposed upon and adapted to their own
already well-nigh perfect fisheries all
that is best and most useful in those
of other countries , so that to-day fish
ing with the Japanese is more than a
mere industry it is almost a fine art.
A striking feature of the Japanese
fisheries , and one which might reason
ably be expected in a people so frugal
and ingenious , is the utilization of all
kinds of water products which in the
United 'States and in many European
countries are wholly or largely neg
lected. In the matter of eating aqua
tic animals and plants the Japanese
have few prejudices , and what they
'ttr * * * - * - * < L k5-Tr *
do not eat they utilize in other ways.
As examples I may mention marine
vegetables , and sharks , which are
among the commonest and most whole
some of the Japanese food-fishes. They
arc sent to the markets in immense
numbers , reach there in excellent con
dition , and are butchered as beeves are
in our country. I believe the time will
come when we shall have attained
that degree of civilization which will
make fashionable th& eating of sharks ,
skates and similar fishes now gener
ally discarded. Meanwhile many of
us will be content to eat the so-callel
"fresh fish" of our markets , albeit
days and weeks old , reeking with put
refactive bacteria , and kept "freslT by
contact with melting ice when not ex
posed to the air of a dirty stall.
A branch of the fisheries in which
Japan far surpasses all other coun
tries as regards both extent and in
genuity of method is the seaweed in
dustry , in the United States , notwith
standing our long coast line and sea
weed resources , not inferior to Japan's ,
the annual crop of marine vegetables
is Avorth only10,000 , whereas in Ja
pan these products are worth not less
than $2,000,000 , and are exceeded in
value by only four animal products
of the fisheries. Many kinds of algae
are gathered and many uses are made
of them. The local consumption is
enormous , and large quantities of pre
pared seaweeds are exported to China ,
Europe and elsewhere. Hugh M.
Smith , in National Geographic Maga

It is generally difficult to find room
for humor on the "field of honor , " but
the Washington Post succeeds in mak
ing the connection in a story of Sena
tor Blackburn of Kentucky.
In the days of his youth Mr. Black
burn was asked by a friend to second
a duel. He consented , and at the next
sunrise the parties met at the appoint
It was Mr. Blackburn's duty to sny
the last words concerning the terms
of the duel. One of the Senator's col
leagues recently said at a Washington
dinner that although Mr. Blackburn
faithfully performed the duty , the duel
never took place.
A murmur of "Why not ? " went
round the table at this remark.
"For a very simple reason , " con
tinued Mr. Blackburn's colleague.
"When Joe finished speaking it was
too dark for a duel. "

The word "prejudice" comes from
two Latin words , "pro" or "pre , " be
forehand , and "judico , " I judge. There
fore "prejudice" means the forming of
an opinion beforehand or before
knowledge. To form an opinion or de
clare a judgment concerning any sub
ject without or ignoring knowledge is
"prejudice. " An opinion formed after
a life-long acquaintance and experi
ence and after thorough Investigation
and study may be erroneous , but cun-
not properly be styled "prejudice. "
When the teaching and experiences of
the world are disregarded , when the
