WHY EDITORS DUN.
Suppose that a farmer raises 1,000
bushels of wheat a year, and also sells
this to 1,000 person j in all parts of the
country, a groat portion of them saying,
"I will hand you a dollar in a short
time," Tho farmer does not want to be
Bmall, and says, "all right!" Soon the
1,000 buBhols are gone, and he has noth
ing to show for it, and he then realizes
that ho has fooled away his whole crop
and its value is due in a thousand little
driblets, consequently he is soriously
ombarrasod in business because his
debtors oach owing him one dollar, treat
it ttB a small matter, and think it would
not help much. Continue this kind of
a business your in and year out, as the
publisher does, how long will ho stand
it? A moment's thought will con
vinco anyono that an editor has cause
for preeiBtont dunning. From "The

THE NEW ARGONAUT
So much has been said and written
of late on the subject of submarine
navigation that the recent launching
of Simon Lake's "New Argonaut''
cannot fail to be of the greatest in
terest, even though the boat is not
primarily Intended for use in war.
The purposes of this new vessel are
largely scientific, and, after making
an exploration of various wrecks
along the coast, it is probable that
she will be sent south to locate new
sponge beds in the West Indies, and
that an attempt will be made to
penetrate beneath the ice-floes of the
In the current number of Harper's
Weekly the following description is
given of tho new invention:
"The 'New Argonaut' is sixty-six
feet long and ten feet wide, and
weighs about a hundred tons.
'The Loat will habitually travel oti
the surface until it reaches the place
where It desires to submerge. It will
then drop downhaul weights from its
reel, and by winding up the cables
attached to the weights on wind
lasses within, and letting water into
its ballast-tanks, sinks directly down.
On the bottom it will become a sub
marine automobile, rolling over the
sand on three wheels propelled by
electric engines and gi.s engines,
aided by its screw."

STRANGER THAN FICTION.
No saying has been more frequently
demonstrated than that, "the truth Is
stranger than fiction," and, if further
evidence is needed, the curious story
of the ancestry of Alexander Poushkln
the Russian poet, which is narrated In
the current number of Literature, is
certuinly a most powerfuhproof of the
veracity of the adage.
Pel er the Great's ambassador at the
Pone stole a nlgger-boy from a Turk
ish harem and sent him back to Rus
sia. "The nlgger-boy," says Litera
ture, "grew up to be a famous gener
al; his son was a famous sea-captain,
and his great-grandson was Alexander
Poushkln, Russia's greatest poet."
Coming of such an ancestry, it was
only natural that the poet's life should
be one of romance. Twice he was ex
lied; once on the way to meet his
bride he was detained by a cholera
quarantine, and during his forced de
lay produced some of his most famous
works, and his death was a fitting end
to his strange career.
Fatally wounded in a dule which he
had been the challenger, he turned
over with a last effort and shot his
opponont in the chest. His shot, was
not fatal, and the man recovered.
Pouskln's death created a sensation in
St. Petersburg, and Russia mourned
the descendant of the African slave.

In commenting upon the action of
Harvard in bestowing tho degree of
LL. D. upon Professor Hadley, the
new president of Yale, "Lltorature"
urges that now that the Ice has been
broken this interchange of courtesies
should be continued. In this event
the writer humorously suggests the
possibilities of our one day seeing a
Harvard man elected captain of a
Yale crew, and a Yalo pitcher in the
box for the crimson nine.
President Hadley is congratulated
on his new honor which puts him in
the enviable position of being able to
cheer, no matter which side wins.
