Nothing but compassion can be
offered to the mournful male corre
spondent who has written to know
what he shall do to compel his wife
to wear "a decent-looking hat." His
case la hopeless. There is nothing he
can do. He errs, In the first place, In
imagining that he knows what "a decent-looking
hat" would be like. He
has doubtless been going- along In his
batlike way imagining that . with
women, as with men, a hat was pri
marily designed to cover the head and
protect it from the sun, rain, cold or
snow and that the shape Is really of
little consequence. Having accepted
that false premise, he need have no
hope of ever being satisfied with any
hat his wife nitty select for her per
sonal adornment.

yields to fate. She would be beauti
ful, of course, in any garb, and mere

beauty Is enough to triumph over any
collection of hideous things stacked on
her head. The normal and logical do
not enter into her calculations when
fashion's decree Is under considera
tion. 'If fashion favors large hats,. the
feminine headgear monopolizes all the
available space in the neighborhood.
If the shifting mandate of style calls
for smallncHs the hat becomes smaller
than the bill. Should fashion demand

scoured for feathers and plumes and

The Easter hat this year, according
to the advance announcements, Is to
rise to great heights above the head
and drop to alarming distances below
the ears of the wearer. It will be
huge, built out with false work and
swelled by puffs. It may look like a
mushroom growing in some dank
morass. It may take the coal scuttle
shape or be fashioned after the peach
basket, with trimmings of wings, veg
etables, ribbons or anything else that
the woman can afford to buy or hap
pens to have around the house. What
ever form It may take, the mere man
may as well decide that he likes it. If
he doesn't he may lump it, for where
fashion dictates woman is adamant as
against all arguments.
A Century of America.
"The First Census of the United
States" is the title of a volume Just
Issued by the federal government,
which contains many highly Interest
ing features upon which to base a com
parison with the America of today and
the nation of 1790, the date of the
first official census. The volume also
contains a summary of some of the
early colonial census reports, thirty-
eight in number.
The most striking feature of the
early census report, from a compara
tive standpoint, is the constant decline
In the size of the American white fam
ily. In 1790 the number of children
under 16 years of age and the number
of adults was practically equal. In
1900 there were 23.846.S10 children
and 43,049.595 adults. The propor
tion of children to adults had sunk
from 4 9 per cent in 1790 to 34 In
1900. In 1,790 families composed of
six or more persons nearly one-half
the total; in 1900 they represented
scarcely one-fourth the population.
The number of children to each white
family decreased from 2.8 in 1790 to
1.5 in 1900, a decline of nearly 50 per
cent. Had the number of the children
to the family maintained the ratio that
held in 1790 the number of children
In the 1900 census would have been
about 20,000 larger than It was. On
this point, the cenBus report says:
Th, people of the I'ulted Btat.-s have
concluded that they are only lout half as
well aide to rear children, at any rate
without prmonal sacrifice, under the con
ditions Willi h )rrvalW'd In I'H . aa their
prcdecesMii s provid themselves to be under
c n ll'lcim prevailing In 1"i.
The first census was printed after
the manner of a city directory, the sur
names of all families being given.
This was soon abandoned as useless,
but the report shows some rather curi
ous facts. In a population of 3.172.
244 there were only 27,340 surname.
Of these the Smith family lead, with a
total of 33.245, with the Brown fam
ily kecond. with 1 9,376. The Davis
family of 14.300 lead the Jones tribe
by about 2,000 and the Johnson, Wll
llsms. Miller and Wilson families tame
In the order named, the English fur
nishing 83 per cent of the while stock
of the nation at that time. In 1900
the white population was about evenly
divided between the descendants of
persons enumerated in 17P0 and of
later arrivals.
King Edward and Hot Milk,
Some weeks ago, when the prince
of Wales presided at the dinner of the
Ravage club, itj was noticed thst he
drank largo quantities of hot milk. He
explained that King Edward, whose
ill-health had been the cause of much
concern and worry for some time, had
recently taken to the drinking of hot
milk as a regular beverage and had
grown robustly strong and w-as now
In his old form. Thereupon all Ion
don developed a hot milk craze and It
Is reported that the hotel bars rannot
keep up with the demand. The liquor
nightcap has been discarded and the
lacteal one substituted.
The English have never cured them
selves of the fad of following the ex
ample of royalty in every possible way
and the hot milk craze threatens to be
the most pronounced of any of the fads
that has taken hold of the Britons for
a long time. They have all the proof
needed of the efficacy of the treatment.
It Is now no secret that King Edward
has been In. a very bad way, from a
health Standpoint, for some months.
Of course, the public policy of po
litely lying about the king's health has
been followed, but all England knows
that the king's condition was at one
time so grave that his court advisers
did everything but rehearse the coro
nation ceremonies for his successor,
but hot milk has triumphed and the
king promises to equal the record of
some of his predecessors In the matter
of longevity.
England's kings have been a long-
lived lot, a hard heart and good diges
tion having been the equipment of
most of them. The first George lived
to be 67, the second 77 and the third
died at 82. George IV lived to be 68,
William IV was 72 when he died and
Queen Victoria was near to completing
her 82d year. At the age of 68 King
Edward, in spite of the somewhat rapid
pace he traveled In Mb younger days,
is now reported to be a good life In
surance risk, due largely, It is asserted,
to his fondness for scalding hot milk.
The hot milk diet haa been spasmod
ically popular In this country and it
may, gain new recruits after this kingly
testimonial to its excellence.
A Word for Dr. Wiley.
The announcement from Washing
ton that Dr. Harvey W. Wiley Is to be
r?talned at the head of the bureau of
chemistry of the Department of Agri
culture and given full charge of the
enforcernert of the national pure food
Ihw will be welcomed by that "large
tdiare of the public that has become
familiar with Dr. Wiley's work and
i he urrelentlng warfare waged against
him since the pure food law was
adopted about three years ago.
Dr. Wiley is something of a crank,
in his way, and has made some orders
and rulings that have brought him
Into ridicule and criticism, but it is
generally admitted, except by manu
facturers who have insisted in using
improper methods, that he haa been
one of the stancbest friends of the
American stomach. Late In Mr. Roose
velt's administration the opponents of
Dr. Wiley became bo determined and
brought bo much Influence to bear
that for a time it looked as though
he might be forced out of his position.
President Taft, however, has accepted
the opinion of Secretary Wilson that
Dr. Wiley's errors have been made ot
the safe side by taking no chances and
that he should be retained to continue
the food reform work which he was so
active in getting started.
When the first disclosures were
made by Dr. Wiley some years ago
that the people were eating preserves
made of rotten fruits, honey made of
glucose, vegetables preserved by dan
gerous poisons and that nearly every
thing In the canned goods lines bad
been doctored, the popular Indignation
was great and any demand for his re
moval at that time would have been
met by an overwhelming storm of pro
test. But while Dr. Wiley has gone
along, steadily camping on the trail of
the dishonest manufacturers, his ene
mies have been working for his undo
ing. That they have failed will be
cause for general congratulation. The
American consumer may now buy food
to eat with the chances largely In fa
vor of getting pure and unadulterated
products, and the lion's sharge of the
credit for this must go to Dr. Wiley.
Catchinsr the Navy Fever.
Canada has caught the Dreadnought
microbe and as a result has made a
proposition to Great Britain that is at
least suggestive of future plans which
the Canadian authorities may have up
their sleeves. Canada oJfers the home
country a couple of battleships equal
to the best In Britain's navy. It is
conditioned that Canada build the
fighting vessels, man and maintain
them and keep them in Canadian
waters unless they should be called
elsewhere by Imperial need In time of
war. In that event they would be re
turned to Canadian waters after the
trouble had blown over. In plain
terms. Canada asks Eugland's permis
sion to build and maintain a powerful
Canadian navy, on condition that Eng
land can borrow it once in a while.
This may mean a spirit of loyalty to
the mother country and it may mean
the manifestatlon of a spirit of Canad
ian independence, which, has been
growing somewhat rapidly In recent
The unfortunate feature of the sit
uation is that Canada cannot afford to
encourage a case of the Dreadnought
'ever. Canada Is but 42 years old and
Is In debt head over heels. The de
velopment of the vast area of country
has gone on more rapidly than the
growth of population. The Dominion,
with a population of less than 7,000,
900. has a debt of about $500.00h.000.
and the direct taxes are already bur
densome upon the people. Tho addi
tion of a navy building tax would be a
high price to pay for a patriotic im
Pensions for Ex-Presidents.
Each congress apparently has a few
members who feel It their duty to offer
measures for the relief of the former
presidents of the United States. At
the present session one bill already of
fered makes ex-presidents honorary
members of the senate for life, at a
salary of $2r.000. Another provides
that rx-preIdents shall have a seat in
tho house with the pay and privileges
of members, but shall not be allowed to
vote. Still another proposes for an ex-
president a flat pension of 125,000 per
On general principles none of these
propositions reflect any great wisdom
on the part of those offering them nor
do they appeal to the people. The
record shows that former presidents
of the United States get along tolerably
well without help from the govern
ment. They are at liberty to do liter
ary or lecture work, engage in any of
the professions or follow any vocation
to their liking. Should they desire to
re-enter public life seats in either
house of congress are open to them, if
they can get the support of the voters
of their states. If they cannot get this
Bupport It would be difficult to under
stand how they could have any par
ticular value to the government In
those positions.
No convincing argument has been
urged in favor of making the former
president a member of either the sen
ate or the house, unless he comes bear
ing the credentials of a specific con
stituency. From the financial stand
point, no president has ever left the
White House lacking money for legiti
mate needs. General Grant's financial
embarrassment grew out of a business
venture he should never have made.
The others have either retired from
the White House to a quiet life or have
engaged In more or less lucrative pur
suits In private life.
Should an ex-president meet with
some physical affliction or, for any
reason, be found in need ot financial
assistance, a generous republic may be
relied upon to go to his relief, but as
general . proposition ex-presldents
may be depended upon to take care of
A Blow at Vaccination.
The supreme court of Illinois has
taken a backward step by deciding
that boards of health have no right. or
power to make vaccination a condition
precedent to admitting a child to the
public schools. The decision is based
on the proposition children and their
parents are "free" and must be pror
tected in their individual personal
The question Is not a new one, but
the Illinois case Is, we believe, the first
In which the courts have ruled against
the police power of the health authori
ties. While Individuals and organiza
tions may oppose vaccination for any
reason, if there is anything in the his
tory of medicine which can be set
down as a demonstrable fact it is that
the discovery of Jenner has annihilated
the danger from smallpox. It Is also
an established fact of public policy
that the way offered for any commu
nity to become immune from the once
dreaded disease, by the use of vaccina
tion, cannot be blocked by the refusal
of Ignorant or prejudiced parents to
submit to rules prescribed for the pro
tection of the general health.
Persia's Minister Quits.
A change that Is marked with some
elements of pathos is about to take
place in the diplomatic corps at Wash
ington. General Mortezo Kahn, the
Persian minister, is selling out his
Washington residence with the Inten
tion of returning to Persia to make a
living In some other manner. He has
had a lot of difficulty for several years
of securing any direct communication
with his country and, according to re
ports, his pay check has always been
lost in the malls. At least he has
never received one, so he has decided
to abandon his post, thereby ending in
failure Persia's third attempt to main
tain a diplomatic representative in the
United States.
General Kahn has made a desperate
effort to keep his government's place
in the diplomatlc( corps. Among a
people to whom he is an alien In
speech, customs and Ideals he has
reaped little but heartaches out of his
five years in Washington.
His recog-
nition has been only at the State de
partment, where diplomatic formality
Is a part of the regular order of the
day. He has had no real business
with this government and. but little to
do except to wear his gold lace, bought
at his own expense, and maintain the
dignity of a monarch who has ap
parently forgotton his existence. That
sort of a thing naturally palls on even
the stanchest patriot and so the gen
eral is going home to give his nere
a rest.
