The Outlook. Company, 287 Fourth Avenue. New York.) Only a brief summary of Mr. Cleve land's two recent lectures on the Vene zuela Affair was given to the public, the lectures having been especially copy righted for appearance in the June and July numbers of The Century Magazine. Few except speciaLatudents are aware of the long history of the connection of the United States- with the subject. -AtnoDg the interesting points brought out in the lectures, and not reported, may be mentioned Mr. Cleveland's scathing remarks on the relation of the senate to treaties formulated by the ex ecutive branch of the government. The lectures constitute Mr. Cleveland's most important contribution to history. The Blessing of Silence. - "The person who speaks without thinking resembles the hunter who shoots without aiming," says the noted philosopher Montesquieu. This is essentially an age of confusion. 8itting in our offices or walking on the streets our senses are confused by a medley of discordant sounds the con tinual pounding of hoofs upon the pave' meets and rattling of heavy carts min gled with the clanging of street car bells, the shrieking of whistles, the clamor of newsboys and peanut venders, all to .thea?coa)panimeut of hand organs, street bands and ever-present, long-suf fering pianos. Small wonder that hu man beings, who are eo easily influenced by outward surroundings, should be the victims of an increasing mental disquie tude, a confusion of ideas which is op. posed to dear and effective .thinking, ana wmen leaves ine numan race no further advanced in mental develop ment than in ages past. Not least among the enemies of inougui ana reason is tne nabit 01 in discriminate chattering so common among persons of limited brain. capaci ty. "Phe lets men think, the more they apeak,' sajs Montesquieu at another time. Volume after volume of rag-time conversation is projected into the world to the bewilderment of the elect few who believe that language ia a vehicle for expressing thought instead of an apology for the absence of it Not many of us can withdraw, like Carlyle, to a sound-proof room where in the silence we can listen to the whis perings of our "utmost spirit," and thus gain an inkling of the great truths of this life and of the life to come. If only we could remember the words of the poet-philosopher, Oliver Wendell Holmes: "Language is a solemn thing; it grows out of life out of its agonies and ecstacies, its wants and weariness. Every language is a temple, in which mo euui 01 inoee wno epeaic it is enshrined.' PoUavlnLno;. TwMt-ftMght yean experience a an iaaide decorator. Reasonable price.
