COFFEE OR TEA?
The world is last adopting coilee
drinkirj", and Americans are the lead
era iu the movement. The rising gen
eration drinks four cups of coffee to one
of tea, and if the tendency continues
the ratio of diilereuce will lie even
more, striking. Twenty years ago the
world drank lets than half the
amount of coti'eu that it does now, and
it cost about twice as much as it does
today. Tea, on the other hand, has
made r.o such marked change eilht r in
price or consumption.
In any restaurant or hotel in Bos

It would be interesting to speculate
over the iuflueuce that this change
may make iu the physical life of the
nation. Does a tea drinker make a
better soldier thau the coflee drinker?
Does the soldier who drinks neither
beverage make a superior fighter? It
might take a long and terrible war to
settle those queries, ami as this is the
age when peace has the call, and we all
want it, even if we have to fight to get
it, the inquiry must drop. But coflee

COMBATING THE GERM PERIL.
Reports of the use of serums for
combating diseases come with remark
able frequency of late. Only last week
the report was published that a physi
cian in California has perfected :i li
quid extract from the metabolic pro
ducts given off by the pneumonia
germ, which has worked rapid and
marvelous cures. Within a period of
from twenty-four hours to four dns
niue cases of pneumonia, one of tuber
culosis and one or more of typhoid fev
er are stated. to have been cured by the
use of the fccrum.
At the same lime physicians of Man
kato, Minn., are suited to have deve
loped the cure of tetanus by the injec
tion of Epsom salt.- into the spinal co
lumn. Eleven wises of this heretofore
fatal disease are declared to have been
cured by this remedy.
Relative to these discoveries and the
reported cures effected by them, the
Pittsburg Dispatch observes: "The
fdur diseases mentioned constitute so
large a share of the ills that Hth is
heir to that such cures as claimed iu
these reports will, if verified open up
a new era as important to the life and
health of the world as those introduced
by vaccination and later by the diph
theria anti toxin. Still, it is well to be
cautious in accepting these remedies as
actually demonstrated. Since the
success of anti-toxin there has been
such a rage for the fightiug of diseases
of serums and injections as to produce
a long list of reported discoveries
which had a roseate start but did not
seem able to maiutaiu the promise of
effectiveness and safety. A dozen or
so cases of each disease do Lot afford a
reliable test of the remedy or preven
tive. The results of thousands or tens
of thousands of cases are needed to tell
The view expressed by the Dis
patch is a very sensible . - to take.
The ooutrol of a few case.- i each dis
ease by the use of the newly discover
ed remedies should not be accepted as
absolutely demonstrating their value
as curative agents. '
Still the human race has suffered so
largely from the effects of the four
disease mentioned that further results
from these remedies will be awaited
with much interest.
While thediscoveiy of the new and
effective remedies for the cure of old
diseases will continue to be jovfully
welcomed, it is not unlikely that the
greatest boon to mankiud iu the way
of immunity for diseases will come
through an awakening of universal in

ORIGIN AND DESTINY OF THE
Iu discussing this subject nothing
but the most profound confidence in
ni' theory, sustained, as I believe, by
all the facts and phenomena of the
earth, internally aud externally, could

well afford to be. In my opinion, this
world is us old as the space in which
it floats, and is new as your latest
breath. We arc told that all space is
the abode of worlds. It is equally
true that all space is the abidiug place
of atoms. It is further true that each
atom has a power of attraction pro
portionate with its bulk aud density
and that when atoms come into such
proximity that their attraction is
sufficiently strong they will come
together and be held thus by the same
force that brought them together, be
coming more compact by attraction
and adhesion with each additional
atom. Two of these atoms thus
brought together have formed a little
world of twice its former bulk and

grows with a tapidly increasing vol
ume and attractive force, yet, incalcu

Let us usmiiiic that our earth thus
started and that it has reached one
third its present size. It then drew to
it within a given length of time from
any given di-iuncc in space one-third
the amouut of material it would now
receive iu the same length of time
whether of atoms or meteors weighing
tous. This proportion has run through
every stage of its existence until now
we find, according to the best author
ity aud the closest calculation of the
scientific, that there are drawn to it
each twenty-four hours -10,000.000 of
meteors sufficiently large to he visible

increase by this material, but when we
con.-idcr that many meteorites reach
the earth, after having lost the greater
part of tlu ir bulk because of fusion in
our :itiuoStluie, whose weight ranges
from ounce.- to tons, we know it is very
great. Nor does this average include
the thickly strewn orbits through
which uc pass each August, nor the
more exteuvc November one, through
which e pass once every thirty-three
All this being true, and there is no
doubt of it, it is plainly to be seen that
the earth adds largely to the surface
every 3ear. The question then arises:
If the earth lias thus grown from an
atom, how are we to account for her
internal heat? This is plain. Nature
is never incoherent. She presents no
illogical stumbling blocks. That
which man does in his tiny way, she
doe iu her gigantic way.
If we can produce heat by pressing
atom against atom, as when with a
hammer we strike a cold rod of iron
on an auvil, heating it unbearably hot
in a few blows, it is easy to see how,
with miles of cubic feet of earth press
ed one upon another, composed of
sharp, irregular grains with no room
for adjustment of atom to atom, these
atoms would for the same reason be
come heated. The same condition is
produced by friction. Friction is but
the pressing aud crushing of atoms
together without room for adjustment.
Calculate the weight of a cubic ioot
would have to bear at fifty, one hun
dred or two hundred miles beneath the
surface of the earth, and we will read
ily see the cause of this internal heat.
If this were not produced by pressure
but had its existence because of fire
that has died down to its present
depth, the same degree of heat at a
given depth from the mountain top,
whatever the height, would not de
velop as from a sea level. In further
proof of the theory that internal heat
is caused by pressure, there is not a
planet several times the earth's size,
the condition of whose atmosphere can
be accounted for in any other way,
while this theory offers a perfect solu
tion of it. Jupiter, with a distance
from the sun aud a surface and an
equator, all tending to insure his
atmosphere to be most tranquil, shows
exactly the opiwsite condition. His
"reat attraction should draw and hold
his atmosphere within a distance of his
surface less than half that of his own.

clouds and smoke, volcanic ajiR-ar-

heat attests the fact that he, too, is a
victim of his awful crushing attrac
tion. Uranus and Neptune show a light
far greater than the reflection from the
sun should be at their great distance.
Planets change to suns, and our sun,
the fittest example of them all, started,
like the system of which he is the
center, an atom, and gathered through
out his great circle of the universe;
until now an asteroid coming within
the grasp of his awful attraction leaves
its orbit in obedience to his all pow
erful strength, plunges into his fiery
surface producing a spot around whose
edges a bright light is manifested, till
by degrees this light grows nearer the
center and the spot has disappeared.
The sun is a demonstration of atomic
growth and its fate.
What will the earth's next move be
toward her fate?
Volcanic manifestations, upheavals
of mountain chains within the seas,
changes of seas to continents, as the
waters find their way into the tires
within. She has done this mauy times
within the ages past, as the mountains
of the earth attest. The heat will be
pressed closer and closer to her surface
with her growth, the ocean will find
its way at shorter intervals into the
forbidden element, continents will be
come more frequently insecure; the
crust will grow so thin that the fire
will press its way through unaided by
ocean until by the same degree and
stages that have marked and are mark
ing the fate of all the stars and larger
planets, the earth will go.
The origiu of one is the origin of all.
The growth of one the growth of all,
the fate of one the fate of all. George
James in Word aud Works.
AS A SOUTHERNER SAW
I have mentioned the fact that I had
strong personal reasons for being'
friendly to General Grant. If he had
not thrown his shield over me I should
have been outlawed aud driven into
exile. My battalion was in uorthern
Virginia on the Potomac, a hundred
miles from Appomattox, when Gener
al Lee surrendered. The Secretary of
War, Mr. Stanton, immediately issued
an order directing that all Confederate
soldiers in Virginia should be invited'
to surrender, aud offering them the
same paroles that were given to Lee's
army, but the order excepted iue.per
soually. General Grant, who was
then all powerful, interposed, and sent
me au offer of the same parole that he
had given General Lee. Such a ser
vice I could never forget.
He also did another thing which
showed the generosity of his nature.
A few weeks before the surrender a
small party of my men crossed the
Potomac one night and got into a fight,
in which a detective was killed. One
of the men was captured and sent to
Fort McHenry. After the war he
was tried by a military commission
and sentenced to be imprisoned. The
boy's mother went to see President
Johnson to beg a pardon for her sou,
but Johnson repelled her.
In her distress the mother went over
to the War Department to see General
Grant. He listened patiently to her
sorrowful story, theu rose and asked
her to go with him. He took her to the
White House, walked into the recep
tion room, and told the President that
there had been suffering enough, and
that he would not leave the room with
out a pardon for the young Southerner.
Johnson signed the necessary paper.
After my parole, I often was arrest
ed and otherwise molested.
When my wife passed through
Washington on her way to Baltimore,
she determined to go to the White
House to make a complaint. Her
father and President Johnson had ser
ved in Congress together, and had been
friends; so she told Johnson whose
daughter and whose wife she was. He
refused her. She left him and went to
sec General Grant at the War Depart
ment. He treated her as courteously
as if she had been the wife of a Union
soldier, and then wrote a letter which
he gave to her. He did not dictate
the letter to a clerk; the whole is in his
handwriting. It gave me liberty to
travel anywhere unmolested, as long as
I observed my parole. I preserve
that letter, framed, among my most
I once said to General Grant.
"General, if you had been a South
ern man, would you have been in the
"Certainly", he replied.
He always spoke in the friendliest
manner of his old army comrades who
went with the South. Once, speaking
of Stonewall Jackson, who was with
him at West Point, he said to me:
"Jackson was the most conscientious
being I ever knew."
I saw Grant the day when he sigued
the Electoral Commission Bill to de
cide the Hayes-Tilden dispute. He
was in an unusually good humor, and
said that the man in whose favor the
commission decided should be inaugur
ated. He talked a good deal about

THE TRIPLE X BRAND.
Hundred point men arc not so plen
tiful. A hundred point mau is one
who keeps his word; who is loyal to
the firm that employs him; who does
not listen for insults nor look for
slights; who carries a civil tougue in
his head; who is polite to straugers,
without being "fresh," who is consid
erate toward servants; who is moder
ate iu his eating aud drinkiug; who is
willing to learn; who is cautious aud
yet courageous. Hundred point mcu
may vary very much in ability, but
this is always true they arc safe men
to deal with, whether drivers of drays,
motormen, clerks, cashiers, engineers,
or presidents of railroads. The hun
dred point man may not look just like
other men, or dress like them, or talk
like them, but what he docs is true to
his own nature. He is himself. He
is more interested in doing his work
than iu what people will say about it.
He does not consider the gallery. He
acts his thought and thinks little of
the act. I never knew a hundred
point mau who was not one brought
up from early youth to make himself
useful, and to economize in the matter
of time and money. Necessity is bal
last. Nature intended that we should
all be poor that we should earn our
bread every day before we eat it.
When you find the hundred point man
you will find one who lives like a
person in moderate circumstances, no
matter what his finances are. Every
man who thinks he has the world by
the tail, aud is about to snap its dem-
nition head off for the delectation of
mankind, is unsafe, no matter how
great his genius iu the Hue of special
ties. The hundred point mau looks
after just one individual, aud that is
the mau under his own hat; he is one
who docs not spend money until he
earns it; who pays his way; who knows
that nothing is ever given for nothing;
who keeps his digits off other people's
property. When he does not know
what to say, why, he says nothing, aud
when he does not kuow what to do, he
does not do it. Elbert Hubbard.
TEXAS DOES BIG THINGS.
Texas has begun to do thiugs on a
big scale. She ought to since she is
not only the biggest state in the union
but she is bigger than any country in
Europe, except Russia, aud has within
her own limits the makings of au im
perial commonwealth. The southern
press gives illustration of how rapidly
Texas is rising to the needs of good
roads aud is building them, which is a
great deal better than to dieam of it
and argue for it.
Kejiorts arriving from all parts of
the state show thai the most marked
feature of this progress at the moment
is the devotion of the people to good
roads. No other of the western or
southwestern states could get along
better than Texas without much ex
pense for that kind of impnvement,
but Texas is not content wih that
fact All the states have bad roads
unless they have genuinely good ones.
There is no middle ground. The pic
tures of reinforced concrete bridges as
part of the good roads building iu the
neighborhood of San Autonio, for ex
ample, show that the state is thorough
ly alive and pushing forward.
It is estimated that Texas will spend
no lees thau $25,000,000 this year on
highway improvement. The chance
for bad work is large where there is so
great an expenditure iu s. short a
time, but it may be noted that in spite
of easy-going ways iu many respects,
the southern states have learned a les
son and are as a rule getting their mo
ney's worth in public expenditures.
Big Texas feels so big that it almost
costs a man his life to suggest that it
be split up into a handful of states, as
it has a right to be under its annexa
tion treaty with theUnited States. Its
size begins to tell splendidly in its fa

CAUGHT BY DRIVER ANTS.
Exciting Experience In West Africa
With These Deadly Pests.
The driver ants are a terrible pest in
West Africa. Crawling over the ground
in countless thousands, invincible to
anything but a wall of fire, they bring
quick death to every live thing unfor
tunate enough to be caught in their
path and leave behind them the skele
tons of lizards, rats, sheep, cattle and
even human beings. In bis book enti

I heard voices calling. "Get up; tho

Luckily Lees' cook stopped him in
time, and a tragedy was avert ed.
We spent the remainder of the night
under a tree. In spite of the discom
fort of it all the persistent rain, the

the idea of our helplessness against
