Many years ago the Rpectacular editor
of the defunct Omaha Republican used
to wind up bis sugar-coated sawdust pie
editorials as follows: "And we desire it
to be understood that we do not wish to
be understood." Tills Is precisely' the
position of William Jennings Bryan, who

It aeema almost unbelievable that there
should have been 680,000 survivors of that
conflict on the pension rolls at the close
of the last fiscal year, yet those are the
figures given out by the pension bureau.
As most of the soldiers of the great strug

18S5 and as a generation has come and
gone since that date, It will be seen that
those who survive must be exceptionally
hale and hearty veterans. It Is wonderful
that there are so many of them.

It seems, however, from a census bulletin
prepared by Prof. Walter F. Wlllcox of
Cornell university, a distinguished statis
tician, that relatively to the whole number
of teachers women are about as numerous
in England as ln this country. The per
centage of women teachers ln England In
1901 was 7S.2: In this country ln 1900 It was
73.4. The percentage here, however, was
much greater than In other European eoun
triea, where It was. according to the latest
census returns, only SI S per cent for Ger

In Germany, France and Italy. In specific
groups of our states, however, where the
school system has been best perfected. It Is
larger than ln England and Wales. In New
England It la 2ll to 10,000 persons between S
and 24 years of age; In the western division
181. ln the Pacific states 107. while In Eng
land and Wales It Is 176. For the whole
continental Vnlted State It la 140; but the
general average Is reduced by the relatively
small number In the southern states, the
proportion of teachera to population of
teachable age being twice as great ln the
north, aa ln tha south.
It appears from the statistics presented
by Prof. Willcox that the supply of teach
ers to population la slightly greater ln the
cities than nutalde them ln the 160 cltle
having a population of 25,000 and over 146
to 10,0o0 people between 6 and 24 years, and
outside them 138. In the cltle nearly five-
sixths and ln country only seven-tenths
of the teachers are women.
Of the teachera ln the Vnlted 6tatea in
1900 the white numbered 424.422 and the
negro only 21, 267. It la Interesting to note
that there were also 384 Indian teachers
and 80 Mongolian. Of the white teachers
more than two-thirds were natlvea of na
tive parentage, about a quarter natlvea of
foreign parentage and leas than one ln six
teen ot foielgn birth. It appears, however,
that while generally the immigrant popu
lation contribute fewer teacher relatively
to their number than the negro, th

This much greater proportion of women
of foreign birth or parentage la explained
by the fact that they ar numerous In cities
like New Tork, where the population of
foreign birth or parentage la largely pre
ponderant. Th progress of education In thia country
is Indicated by th fact that the proportion
of teachers doubled In th last thirty years.

The latest case In point became known
last Monday, when the news of the death
of E. R. Whitney, a rich Canadian lumber
man, was announced.
On one of hi many trip to New York
last spring Whitney, a 70-year-old widower,
was struck with the beauty of Anna Ben
net, a telephone operator at the Grand
Vnlon hotel. She was only 22 years old,
but the discrepancy In their age did not
prevent them from falling ln love. They
were married May 7, and on the wedding
day Mr. Whitney n-ttled llOO.otiO upon the
bride, and his wedding gifts to her were
$15,000 for her trousseau, a diamond un

wedding Whitney became ill and went to

accompanied by his bride, where he died
