far more injurious than submission to

It appears, too, that the roseate rep

reason to believe that a good many of

for San Francisco, It Is really hardly

The bill prepared by Secretary Taft
for changing the method of promotion
of regular army officers is .likely to
be dffflcult to paas. Its central feature
is authority to. weed out the large num
ber of officers who by reason of physical
or mental Incapacity are able, through
the old system of promotion by the
rigid rule of seniority, to block the
way of younger'and more capable
officers to the places to which they are
by merit entitled and In which it Is
the public interest to have their serv
It Is a familiar fact that as the. case
stands the most capable officers are
too often held back In the lower
grades till they reach an age at which
some of them become incompetent for
the higher grades. The inevitable ef
fect of such a system Is to weaken the
military arm, and Its general tendency
is to paralyze the ambition and effort
of young officers whose Career is be
fore them'. ' -
Secretary Taft's bill, which has been
prepared with exceeding care and -in
the light of thorough investigation,
prescribes a system of examinations
which would summarily rid the serv
ice of a large number of officers who,
though they have not reached the
legal age of retirement, are a detri
ment both by their mere presence and
by keeping accomplished officers. out
of their proper places, and also opens
a way by which officers of exceptional
abilities and successful devotion to
duty cah be promoted in accordance
with their merits without waiting for
the inconvenient, and often - unjust
operation of the seniority rule.
Such' propositions to reform the mil
itary establishment have had to en
counter obstinate and too frequently
insuperable opposition, and there is no
reason to hope that Secretary Taft's bill
will be an exception to th rule.

In the world, fta democracy la attested

mainly In sack suits. Usually dark colored

the Polish and I.lttle Russian peasants
make an effort at a brave arpearance,
with their white long woolen coata, or
caftans, often braided- rather elaborately,
and with broad magenla' woolen sashes, or
leather belts, six Inchea wide. One of them
has retained hla caftan and sash, but
discarded the embroidered home-made ahlrt

"There la a Polish member who Is dressed
in light blue tlghta. and a ahort Eton

white flannel coat reschlng to his kneee,
adorned with an Intricate pattern pf dark

his shoulders, bordered with vermilion

Taken as a whole It Is a youthful' as

The London correspondent of the Now

, The .British, office lias resolved to
withdraw the entire garrison from tha
little Island 1,400 milea off the coast of
Guinea where Napoleon died and wher,
in- recent years, the conquered Boer gen
erals had' their habitation. At first thought
this may "seem aM" Insignificant matter,
but, aa 1t will- be presently pointed out In
the House of Conmns, tt means ruin u
the permanent lrihattanta of St. Helena.
.The total estimated value -of the -island's
wealth Is only 1100,000, divided among
about 10,000 Inhabitants. To keep this
wealth productive-. the garrison, which in
nornutl times amounts to nearly 2,000 men,
has been, a most aotive factor. This will
at once be seen when It la noted that the
Imports, including specie, are usually five
times the value of, the exporta, and that
the expenditure of the Island is almost
double the'revenue.
The presence of the garrison means the.
active annual circulation of over 60,000
Just sufficient to keep up the equilibrium.
If this ba annihilated the products sold to
the ships entered and cleared at St. lV l
eua, while possibly sufficient to keep tha
population from actual want, muat curtail
to a measurable degree public expendi
tures, and hence the civilization of the is
land, notwithstanding the paltry grant of
fC00 annually from the home government
for education, will Inevitably suffer.
Some comparison has been made In a
Berlin letter to the New York Evening
Poat between tha coRta of life insurance
In, some of the leading German companies
and the one big New York concern doing
business in that country. The German
mutual companies taken for Illustration are
the Gotha the Karlsruhe, tha old Stutt
gart and the old Lelpalg. ' The gross pre
mium charge on 10,000 marks of Insurance
ranges from 412 to 43.17 marks In the Ger
anan companies, and Is 428.50 marks for tha
New -York company. But expenses In the
German companies reach the extraordi
nary. low level of from 4 to 6.9 per cent
of Income, while for the New York com
pany they amount to some 20 per cent.
The result Is that the annual dividends In
the German companies range from 28.7 to
S4.7 per cent, while for the New York com
pany they have lieen only about 10 per
cent. It la stated that the New Tork com
pany for a time sold only policlea carrying
an annual distribution of surplus, but ita
dividends made so poor a comparison with
the German companies that It haa lately
resumed the sale of cumulative or deferred
dividend policies, which are so admirably
adapted to conceal high costs of admin
istration'. It Is said, in explanation of the
fact that the New York company haa still
bean 'able to do a large business' In com
petition wltb, the German companies, that
this Is due to the .high percentage paid to
agents and also to the wide advertising
done and the parade of huge figures of sur
plus, which give aa impression of solidity.
' The report -of the charity commissioners
of Kngland and Wales for the year IS
discusses the possibility of reviving the
apprenticeship, system. . After pointing out
that the conditions existing when most of
tha apprenticeship charities were founded
have been changed by the Introduction of
machinery and the division of labor, and
that only In exceptional cases Is it now
possible for an apprentice , to become a
member of his master's household and
there to acquire a complete knowledge of J
nis (ran, tne coinmissionera express the
opinion that the continuous training which
apprenticeahlp cai give ia still a valuable
aid to industrial efficiency, and therefore
any meana of extending that system should
be adopted. They suggest that the partial
failure of many apprenticing charitlea la

which Representative Gardiner of Massa

by the house before adjournment of the

Mr.i Kennedy received a telegram signed
by G. W. Wattles. G. M. Hitchcock, R.
Cowell, J. C. Wharton and J. C. Dahlman
favoring stricter Immigration laws and the
educational' tests "for Immigrants, but
modified, however, that refugees from re

A similar telegram was also received by
Mr. Kennedy from tilt chairman of his

' Omaha Importers Complain.
Senator Millard received a letter from

signment Bhtpped In bond to Omaha ought
to have been cleared 'at the latter 'port
and. the duty paid to Omaha. Senator Mil

The chief cause of Indigestion and Stom
ach Trouble is the failure of the lads to
properly secrete the normal digestive fluid.

due to the circulation in the glands becoming
clogged with tha jelly-like form of uric acid.

if I 111 the secretions suppressed, artifi
cial digestives can at best give but temporary
relief. Stimulants at first give relief, but
afterwards the re-action Is so depressing that
they make the case chronic, and the user a
slave to the stimulant. For. anything like
satisfactory results, the normal secretions
must be restored. To do this the uric slid
