The Uominle Didn't Sing It.
Washington Star : There is a big Baptist
church colored out in the northwestern
part of the city. A man standing at the in
tersection of Vermont avenue and T street
might hit it with a stone without overtaxing
himself. The pastor of the church Is a good
deal of a vocalist and nothing pleases his
congregation more than his excellent rendi
tions of gospel hymns. There was a meeting
In that church ono evening last week nnd ev
erything was moving along very pleasantly
when the pastor said : "Now , wo are going
to take up n collection , and If thu amount do
nated is satlsfnstorily largo I will sing for
you sing anything you ask for , "
The congregation then shelled out its con
tribution. It must have seen "satisfactorily
largo" for the pastor stepped forward and
said : "I'll ' slug now. What shall It bo ? Ex
press your preferences. "
"Annlo Hoouey , " said somebody In ono of
the rear scats , and the preacher's wrath was
momentarily shrouded In a peal of laugntcr.

The adjustable bridge for lire Jioso ,

took place the attendant incidents ol
which showed how valuable would have
boon the device which has Hinco shown
itself so useful. When the Grand hotel
in that city was burned the lire hose
blocked the live cable lines converging
on a principal thoroughfare for many
hours in the onrly morning' , so that all
tlio merchants , mouluuiics and others
going to work at thai tinio wore obliged
to take other lines or walk. The cable
company lost , it is said , between $00(1 (
and $800 in faros alone by the detention ,
while the inconvenience to the public
was very great. All this could have
been obviated by the use of the hobo
bridge. The bridge consists of an iron
framework , the sides of which stand

AYIIKS , Nov. 3. [ Special to THE
DEE. J Things are improving I So says tbo
London Times , with dignity , at a distance of
7,000 , mlloa. So says the powerful Buenos
Ay res press , hilariously , and on the spot erse
so says that part of It , at least , which U sub
sidized by the national government. So , too ,
say all the honorable congressmen , 'with
noisy and eloquent patriotism , during the
line that they draw salaries for this sort of
eloquence , beginning promptly at 3 o'clock
each day while congress sits. And so says
the president himself , just as every other
Argentine president has said from 183) until
the present day. Yet , despite such an over
whelming unanimity of opinion , the state
ment deserves to bo taken with moro quali
fying phrases than even an English Journal
can crowd Into ono sentence.
Three months ago occurred the re volution
which made this city a three days subject of
comment nil over the civilized world. At Its
close , when Juarez Column was forced to de
part rather hurriedly by a back exit from
the presidency , the people went , wild with
Joy ; business.houses were closed and covered
with llaics , the streets were Jammed all day
with crowds and a street orator could never
got moro than two syllables of the word
"liberty" out of his mouth before his volco
was drowned in the
iKLt/3 Or AX EXCITED l'OPUl\CB.
It was two weeks before the people grew
Ired of this sort of thing. Then they stopped
felling and began , as It were , to pick up the
ileces. The army ofllcorp who had boon de
prived of their Mtiks for taking part in the
rebellion were restored to their former posi-
lons. Help Was solicited for those who had
est friends or proparty oven street beggars
ivhohad been droning out the sumo talc of
ivoo for half n lifetime without over having
been known to vary It by a syllable , now
added the announcement that they were
'revolution ' sufTcroM. " A public mass was
liela for the dead heroes. Pensions were
given to their widows. Now recruits filled
the gaps in the army's ' ranlts. And then. Just
as affairs were becoming dull and peaceful
once moro the public suddenly took itself by
the buttonhole and whispered Into its own
fur the intelligence that another revolution
was coming to enliven things.
The difference between North and South
American republics appears to bo Just
this : When the North Americans wish to
ettle a political matter , they vote upon it ;

TlIU SOUTH AMKIIICAN OI5TS HIS OUX.
Twenty years ago a revolution occurred in
Buenos Ayres to destroy the power of n cor
rupt political ring. Ten years later it re
quired several months of lighting to ductile
whore the national capital should bo located.
And in July , 181K ) , the people , Instead of wait
ing until election tlmo cumo around , once
more took up their guns and pointed them at
an objectionable president ,
From July to October , and tbo trouble now
Is u minister of the Interior ! This gentle
man , ono of the cabinet of the deposed ad
ministration , has been continued in olllco by
President PelllKi-ini because ho deserves it.
Uullko many Argentine oftlcials , ho is somo-
tning moro than an expensive figurehead ; ho
Is honest and enterprising , nnd is possessed
of that sound common sense called common
because so remarkably rare. But the fact
that ho was associated with the ex-presi
dent's government was sufllcicnt to cull down
upon him the righteous wrath of thai gangot
professional patriots who constitute the Ar
gentine army. These , therefore , served no
tice upon him a few days ago that ho must
cet out or suffer the consequences , which
would be , of course , the only consequence
which ever enters the head of a South American
ican- man a revolution. Instead of being
frightened at this , Minister Koca sent back
word that ho was there to stay , and that ho
was prepared to gi'-o the consequences a
warm welcome whenever they should chance
to come along.
That was n week ago. Slnco then Buenos
Ayres has stood braced up for almost any
kind of a shock. Sometimes the policemen
are withdrawn from the street corners in the
early evening , gathered into the station-
houses nnd armed with muskets , ready to do
military duty if the occasion arises. Some
times in the dead of night the timid citizen
wakes and hears the distant rumble of drums
nnd marching feet , and ho hurriedly looks to
the fastenings of bis shutters , and uoubly
bolts and burs his doors. Sometimes ho falls
asleep thinking of the many similar experi
ences which ho has gone through in the past.
And sometimes he is nrousca a llttlo later by
the sound of n ringing bugle blast which ho
was endeavoring to blow through his mouth
and nose. But morning never nrlngs moro
than renewed suspense another day of wait
Ing for the
I1I.OWS AND IIIFI.U SHOTS

This sensation of sitting over a powdci
mine waiting for it to explode Is interesting
but not especially unusual down hero. All o
these little-boy republics of South America go
merrily along the same perilous pathway
until presently one of them stumbles eve
some political or Unanclal obstacle and fall
down. Not many months ago the republic o
Chili , through a slight excess of prollt-puy
ing politics , found herself torn by u rovolu
lion. The Argentine Hcpuollu has jus
arrived at the sumo end in a slight
ly different way. Little Uruguay , too
one of the most fertile countries ii
the world , is levying fixes enough to rui
Kussiu ; never before has she oi.Joycd snci
peace as at present , andshohus every chance
to prosper , yet she Is keeping half the papu
mills of England busy supplying her with
money the only kind that shu bus , and now
proposes to double all her Kostncu rates ii
order to replete her empty treasury. It is
not fur from stops like these , taken in time
of peace , to the ultimate tumble. And litmll ;
Uni/.H , which came Into the blessings of re
publicanism only a year ago , is financially
going to the dogs nt such a ruto that she
promises soon to overtake her older compoti
tors. Hvory one of these countries presents
the unique spectacle of a people prospering
for they do prosper In spite of their gov
eminent.
Itrnzil , in common with the Argentina He-
public , employs an immigrant agent. No
creature on this earth , no matter how besotted

bo possessed of sulllck'iit endowments to en

California when ho Introduced his bill pro
viding for government loans to farmers. It Is
n mortgage bond authorized by government ,
ssuedhy the provincial and national banks ,
and secured by mortgages on land , the Inter
est on these bonds being guaranteed by the
( overnment. The cedula scheme struck this
epubllo In 188'J , nnd the people rushed into
t with mouths characteristically wide open.
They plastered the country all over with ccd-
ulas. In eight years tbo amount of money
wrrowed in this way has been $110. per

t'MAT ' A TERRIBLE
That Person Had. I Could Hardly Talk With Him. "
There is not a person who
reads this that has not both
heard and made a similar ex
pression to the above , perhaps
many times , yet few ever think
what the cause is. Nine cases -
out of ton a bad breath is caused
by decayed teeth. These cava-
ties of decay form rocepticles for
the accumulation of food which
becomes decomposed , hence the
offensive odor. Ono decayed
tooth will often make the breath
almost unbearable to those with
whom you converge. It being a
sensitive subject to mention be
tween friends frequently one
goes In ignorance of how offen
sive their breath may be. This is not all. The decomposed matter
In a cavity of decay is constantly being swallowed and Is frequently
the cause oCdiseases of the stomach , which in manycases bring on
othe'r complicated diseases of the general system. How important it
should be then , to keep your mouth in a clean and healthy state , Torso
much of your health , comfort and happiness depend upon H. Visit

And have your mouth looked over. Examination and advice fv c.
