But as there are people who prefer
'the pound of cute' to "the ounce of
prevention" which Is leconimenried by
wisdom, It Is well to pass alnnj; the
information of wheie the pound of cute
n such eases Is to be sought.

It Is chaiacteilstlc of the "reform
rs" who failed to buy the organlza
lon of the recent leglflature that they
re now defaming It for alleged venal
ity. Keeping Cool.
T IS INDIC TIVn of a better
state of feeling than formerly
prevailed that the Canadian
customs official at SUagway,
whose recent raising of the Canadian
ilag on soil of the I'nlted States caused
something of a stir, has been admon
ished by his go eminent not to tepeat
the action. He meant no offense.
The flag lie raised was a uistomi, en
sign and its puipose was to Inform
the people as to the location of the
Canadian customs house. Pending a
delimitation of the disputed AMfckan
boundary, both America) and Cana
dian customs houses aie operated In
the region In question under friendly
agreement. If this flag Incident had
happened a few years ago there would
have been breathings and snortlngs
most furious among the Jlngos on both
sides, but today, under the better tem
per generally prevalent among both
the officials and the people of the
two countries, It excites only passing
notice and generates no bad blood
While the people of the T'nlted
States are fully as determined now as
ver to preserve all that belongs to
them in the Northwest, they recog
nize that the best way to anlve at
an understanding of the boundary is
sue Is by maintaining their equlpose
and not by giving way to exhibitions
of poor self-control. The government
here and the government In Canada
are In the hands of broad-minded
men, thoroughly capable of negotiat
ing to a peaceful conclusion w hatcver
differences now exist or may arise.
This fact being well known, doubtless
accounts for the public's reluctance to
become fieicely excited over the epi
sode of the Skagway flag.
On this day probably eery orator
and prominent citizen who appears in
public can truthfully say that he re
ceived a warm welcome.
As to Handwriting Experts.
-y ETTEKS TO the New York
I papers from law era and
1 - otheis show the strong teel
lng, aroused by the Ken
nedy and MMIneux trials, that If the
"opinions-" of "handwriting experts" as
to the Identity of the writer of a di
puted Signature or letter, aie to be
accepted as conclusive evidence in
courts of law, Uien the life of no
person Is eafc for any one may be
accused. That an "expeit" comparing
nn admitted signature with a disputed
one may possibly be able to tell whe
ther or not the disputed one In gen
uine, Is the utmost point the public
does accept or ought to.
A correspondent, signing himself
"Lex," "under date of June 27, review
ing the whole "expert" testimony in
the two ttlals mentioned, closes hie
iong letter tb the New York Sun by
saying: "It Is to be hoped that the
ourt of appeals will by their decision
in tho Mollneux enso prevent In the
'uture speculations of the character
that were permitted in tho Mollneux
and Kepngdy caseB and thereby Insure
citizens afcalnst unjust conviction.
For," ho-contlnues, "the very so-called
characteristic In the Mollneux cnnc
(the break between the 1 and the o
in which, and the 1 and g in oblige)
exists In my own handwriting and In
the handwritings of various of my
acquaintances resident In the city of
New York, although Mr. Kinsley
stated fm the stand that It was a char
acterstlc that could not be found once
in a million different handwritings."
IieforV.-cllnchlns what he had al-
ready shown of the" titter untrust
worthiness of "h.indwiltlng expert"
testimony by that closing statement,
"I.ex" had adverted to "the wildest
speculation of nil" made by these ex
pel ts, and "admitted hy a couit In a
capital case," to wit: That tho person
to hi' ch.uged Is the only one of nun
died of millions who can write tho
Ungllsh language who has those char
arteilstlcs." We do not know whether Mollneux
Is guilty as charged or not. Wo do
know that convicting him, or nny
one else, of murder on the testimony of
an "expert" In hr.ndwrltlng Ih a men

Don't Get Frightened nt Shadows
WE DO NOT sefi the neces
sity for becomlng'excltod
because tho ofllclals of
the Delawaie, Lacka
wanna and Western Itiillio.id company
have been considering the ndvlsahlllty
of locating car repair shops nt Etnc
h.imtoii. It Is possible to exaggerate
the Importance of what they havp done
and what they may do In this matter.
Pcranton is a city whose future H
not to be made or niaried by the Pel
aware, Lackawanna and Western H.ill
load company. This fact should bo
understood frankly In order to conect
misapprehensions. We do not believe
It Is the policy of the management of
that company to try to lnjuio Scran
ton. On the contrary eery leason
which has existed in the past for it
to tiy to help in the upbuilding of this
city and valley exists with increncod
force today and will glow In force each
ear. The lalhoad gets as well ns
gives business and cannot get without
giving. An enlightened selfishness
will, theiefore, prompt It to continue
to help for waul this city's development
and If this Is questioned now, whlih
we doubt, the subsidence of existlns
temporal y frictions, which aie Inci
dental f business whcievcr transacted,
will once mote impiess it upon tho
keen business intelligence of tho rail
But leaving out of consideration
whatever may bo tho ptesent or the
ultimate view concerning Pcranton en
tertained by the gentlemen now ad
mlnlsteilng tho affalts of the Dela
ware, Lackawanna nml Western com
panyand we think wo arc Justified In
saying that they aie ns nnxlous to soe
Scran ton ptos-poious as are the citizens
of Scranton the point to be kept In
mind by those who aie somewhat In
clined to get seated at passing ru
mors is that Scianton Is too big and
broad to be hurt seriously by incidental
lndustilal changes. Her people have
made of a straggling mining hamlet
a metiopolitan city second In enter
prise, thrift and public spirit to none
In the land and this spirit Is not dead
by a long shot. They have among
them the money and the will to carry
forward becomingly tho intiepld work
of their fathers and they will do it
with the aid of the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company, we sin
cerely trust and believe; but without
It If necessary.
We aie again reminded that the
thunder of the Fourth of July oiator
has been monopolized In advance at
the high school and college commence
ments. Agriculturally Independent,
THE SECRETARY of axilcul
ture piedlcts that within n,
year the L'nltcd States, In
connection with Its new pos
sessions, will be inlslng pinctlcally
every ngilcultur.il pioduct It uses.
Then It will be virtually Independent
conimei daily of tho lein.ilnder of the
world, and while not desiious of a ttade
war nor willing to piovoke any foim
of Euiopean letallatlon will be in con
dition to resist one should one come a
clteumstance not probable.
Heietofoio the I'nlted States has ie
lied chiefly upon foielgn countiles for
Its supply of sugar. By next fall moie
than foity beet ugar factoiics will be
In successful opeiation in vailous paits
of the countty and within a few jeais.
If Sectetaiy Wilson 1b correct, we shall
be supplying our own demand lor
sugar. The possibilities of cane sugar
raising In Potto Blco and the Philip
pines, taken In supplement of the beet
sugar pioductlon at home, me Mtill
dent to bring Independence on shoit
Next to sugar, tea has been our chief
food Impoit. Says Secietaiy Wilson on
this scoie: "Wo are now succeeding
admirably In the production of tea In
tho United States. It Is only a ques
tion of a short time when we will be
able to raise nil the tea demanded lor
use in this counti'y- Tho two tons of
tea grown at Sunimorvillc, S, C, lost
year so well satisfied the New Yoik
Investors Interested in tho Industry
that they Immediately loinied a syndi
cate and bought 6,000 nctcs of hind In
the state, upon which tea will bo
giown. This department last yenr sent
tea plants to every gulf stuto in the
Union, from tho Caiollnas to Cali
fornia, for experimental lalslng. We
have Just heard from South CaioJina
that Imported machinery In use there
Is able to make gieen tea from the
block product in one hour Wo don't
yet manufacture such machinery in
thtfi countiy, but we will get to that
later. We are now Importing plants
from China, Ceylon and Japan, and we
purpose raising the highest grade of
the product In this country."
Of rice we Import "S per cent, of the
aire unt used, but rlanfl are being de
veloped for a largo Increase In the
homo supply. Coftoo can be grown of
Rood iMftrli In Porto nico, Hawaii and
tho Philippines, and so can the plants
from which rubber Ic made Wo nre
sending out of the country $30,000,000 n
year for rubber. It Is a possibility that
mo.U of this can bo kept within Ameri
can territory. The wheat ftom which
Macaroni Is made la now giown In
Italy, but the ngrlcultuial depnttnicnt
expects to produce n grade of homo
wheat equal for the purpose. Our new
possessions can supply all the r.plces
lequlred and experiments being mado
In tho cross-breeding of cottons aie ex
pected soon to produce a high grade
product that will obviate the present
necessity of Importing certain cotton
supplies from Egypt.
To use Secretary Wilson's words, the
situation may bo sumiiriilzcd by sa
ing that "there is no doubt that this
country, within a few months, will bo
In a position to Iguoio every other na
tion on the glohe In the matter of food
products. We will produce within our
own domain everything that goes upon
our table nnd upon our backs. We will
then be, commet dally nnd Industrially,
almost Independent of tho other na
tions of tho world. Hence any trade
combination which may be effected
against iw will count for nothing.
Whenever wo get ready we can come
pretty near starving any other nation.
Therefore, an effective combination
against us will be an Impossibility."
No other nation U thus favored.
Wp hope the word will not come with
too gie.it a shock to nny one that the
scientific men of the Smithsonian In
stitution and those of the Peabody
museum at Hatvaul, to which Pro
fessor Whitney piesented It, now doubt
that the famous "CaUveias skull"
really teptesents prehistoric man. This
knowledge may be pattlculaily sad to
those who have enjoyed full often
Bret Harte's touching poetical account
of the row upon the Stanislaus caused
by Jtust such geologic doubtr. started
In a meeting of "pioneer" scientists in
those still unsettled California days.
Even "evolutionary" science, which In
Its own eatly evolution was cocksure
of all ltr. own conclusions, Is, It seems,
beginning to show occasional symp
toms of evolutlng into modesty in its
It seems that M. Hurlvaux, the great
1'iench ghss maker nnd Inventor of
"stone glass," has been making a pio
nouncenient that his new material will,
after a lit tic time, supersede bilck for
building. Accordingly, the Lnndo
Spectator has been amusing Itself with
detailed suggestions to "some of the
mllllonnlies now so common among us,
for building a homo of many coloted
glass, with tiansluceut llg.. eveiy
wheie within, altogether Impervious to
tlie eye gazing fioni without." Prob
ably no one will Ik In Iuumo to dwell
In lalnbow -tinted apartments all day
nnd every day, but as the material Is
ptactlcally Indestiuctlble any such
dweller could nffoid to" throw stones,"
and a new pioverb will bo needed.
With this season's toirld climate,
with the mercury In the theimometer
fairly bubbling In the effort to get
to the top of the tube nnd blow It off

satisfying thing to lend that theto Is
no Ice tiust In New York city this year,

Bcranton, July 2.
American flrf af
IT IS srnrniSING what a number
of very Intelligent nnd cultured
Americans know little about tho
nrtlsts of their own country. They
may be pretty well "up" in Italian
art, can tell a Raphael Madonna from
one of Mttrlllo's, are familiar with tho
Hlstlne frescoes and know the syhlla
apart, nnd can give a glib description
of masterpieces In the Louvre and In
the Dresden gallery, yet am very un
certain regarding most of tho noted
names among American nrtlsts. They
know when a Botticelli Is bought by
some of our multl-mllllonaltes and can
single out a Jean Francois Millet or a
Landseer, but they can scarcely name
five great landscape nttlsts who are
known as Americans. They are the
ones who consider the Art Gallery in
the Pan-American exposition to be a
very trivial thing nnd arc always
quoting the: Salon or the World's Fair.
The exhlhlts of American artists rlo
not make up such a collection as were
shown at Chicago. That Is not to be
expected. Visitors who aro'famlllar
with art In a great sense will miss
st.me of the gems In that wonderful
loan exhibition, the Corots, the Jules
Uretons, the works of Diaz and others
whose names are never forgotten, hut
they will be able to gain more real
knowledge of painting from the
smaller Pan-American collection than
from those mllen of galleries where
the visitor was weary unto death with
sight-seeing nnd by the time he
reached the Art building viewed It
with about as much Intelligence nnd
discrimination as the brides and
grooms look upon objects of lnteiesi
In the exposition of 1901.
Oh, those brides nnd grooms how
they do throng the Pan-American,
and why on earth they are there only
an omniscient Providence knows.
Surely they would be happier In a
lodge In some vast wilderness, or.
Ilka Omar, with "A loaf of bread, a
Jug of wln and thou,' than In the
midst of this ceaseless, tired and un
sympathetic multitude. They go
about, the poor things, either hold
ing hands and you know they've
come f i oni the Interior of Canada
somewhoie or New York state or
else trying vaguely to seem as stran
gers, when the rice Is still trickling
visibly down their unhappy necks.
They don't see a solitary thing but
each other and they bump against you
tltesomely because of their self pre
occupation. They wear suspiciously
and painfully new shoes and collars,
nnd never get careles ind look just
any old way only so u .( comfortable,
like people who have been married six
months or moie. They would have a
beautiful time, and so would every
body else. If only they would take
themselves off to some quiet spot,
where they could look Into each
other's eyes uninterruptedly and not
be rudely awakened from trances by
having people almost pull the chairs
out from under them at the Ameilcan
Inn, because of the stress of hunger,
or necessitating the sending of a de
tachment of soldiery to chase them off
the drill gtound, where they've Inad
vertently wandered just as the sunset
drill Is to take place.
They moon In tho Art Gallery In the
same fashion nnd occupy seats In
which people who nre there for edlfl
cntlon would rest. These are a few
of the things which brides and grooms
(except tho3c v ho come from Scran
ton) persist in aimlessly doing. I
can't begin to toll you how they act
at Nlagaia Falls. It's a wonder there
aren't more drowning accidents at
What I started out to say was that
vestibule Room A in the Art Gallery
is worth a visit aside from the St.
Gaudens' has relief and medallions. It
Is theie, on the eastern wall, that
Plashfleld's "Angel with tho Flaming
Sword" stands, with tho wonderful
blue light from the beautiful brow
falling down upon tho breast and the
hands, folded above the mighty
weapon which kept our first parents
out of Eden. You will want to see
this picture, for the drooping eyes, tho
sad. passionate mouth and the strange
peso will fascinate you.

Reid here which, in Its soft, dim out
lines, Is attractive from across the

Room H is called the "Star Cham

the greatest pictures in the exhibi

Marvellous degiee. Hero aie the F. D.
VUlets our own Frank, not the Jean
Ftar.cols, of "The Angelus" and kin
ditd fame. Heie, too, is the cele
brated picture by Edwin A. Abbey, the
plctuie around which crowd more peo
pl than around any other. I have
several words to say about It another
dj and I am reminded of that other
.met lean picture which at he World's
Fair and at at Atlanta, held the mul
titudes fast before It, and, nlas, the
mutability of human Interest is felt
when we realize that not one canvas
by Thomas Hovenden. the Pennsylva
nia artist who painted "Breaking
Home Ties," Is to be seen at the Pan
American, although close in the homes
all over the land engraving and
prints of that picture, which made
men and women weep at Its pathos,
may be found. Perhaps some day
r me other painter will take up the
sacrifice of this brother who gave his
life for a little child, and make of It
a great picture. H.C. P.

Here is an opportunity for some ambitious young people to
earn the best college education without a great amount of effort,
and it is an opportunity that nny never be repeated. The Trib
une may find the returns much less than the expense and would
then be unable to again make such generous offers. Such a con
dition will be The Tribune's loss and the contestants' gain.
There are many young men, and young women, too, who
would be glad of an opportunity to "work their way through col
lege," in fact, the presidents of these institutions are deluged with
applications for chances of this kind. Here the work for an entire
course of four years can all be accomplished In three short months,
and an education that would cost in cash $i,ooo is assured with
out further outlay. Parents should urge their boys and girls to
enter the contest and work for one of the special rewards. One
of the eight is within the reach of everyone who really tries.
