We read of the volcanic eruption in
Martinique and It brings us to a little
pause In our haste because of Its being
rather remarkable In the way of dis
asters. It contains a certain element
of romance, too; a flavor as It were, of
Sodom and Gomorrah, of Pompeii in
her last days, of the Belshazzur feast
night, of that other night when
The Angel of Death spread his wings on
And breathed In the face of each one as
, he passed;
And the eyes of the sleepers wnxed dead

And their hearts but once heaved and
forever grew still.
And the widows of Ashtir are loud in
And the Idols are broke In tho temple
And the might of the Gentile, unsmote
by the sword,

But even Martinique Is rather remote
and we soon forget the first shock of
the horrible details, and we only sigh
comfortably and remark that we are
glad there are no volcanic disturbances

We read of the catastrophes that seem
to pursue ill-fated Johnstown, and that
Is nearer home and naturally distresses
us more. Vet we say, "Oh, we know
all about mine disasters; we have them
ourselves!" and because we do know
all about them we don't take the one
of our afflicted neighbor so Intensely to
heart as might be supposed.
We hear nbout some foolish girl and
her profligate companion meeting a
tragic death In an eastern village, and
we peruse the evil story with absorbed
Interest when their being In or out of
the world Is of little Importance, and
the world would be better If such
crimes In every detail were less ex
ploited. Yet wo scarcely trouble to
rend more than the two-line head of
the item briefly telling about the crush
ing of two men in the mines we are
"so used" to that, too; and we read of
a railway accident and say casually,
"Only the brakeman was killed."
"Only the brakeman!" and we don't see
the agony In the desolate home per
haps the destitution likely to follow be
cause "only the brakeman was killed."
It Isn't for the reason that we are un
sympathetic and hard; not because we
are so occupied with our own affairs
that no cannot stop to feel sorry. It Is
simply because there Is so much grief
In the world that most of it must
necessarily be remote from us and
touch us but lightly. If the brakeman
lived next door or was some one we
knew, there would be no lack of sym
pathy on our part and we should hasten
to that home and take our kind words
and our flowers and drop our tears as
we would for one ot our own. Sympa

The other dny a good woman died.
Out of her abundance she had given to
everyone who touched her life. To the
rich she gave gentle words and'ifrlond
ly Interest which had in It a unique
quality in that It was genuine. To the
poor she gave the gentle words and
food and money and tender care. When
she lay dead in her splendid home,
costliest flowers covered the place of
her rest. There were prchlds of price
less value, lilies out of season and won
derful treasures of tropical skies; yet
among them, none sweeter, none dear
erlay a cluster of nameless roses from
tho homely, old-fashioned garden of an
old woman woh used to sell vegetables
at the kitchen door of the great house.
Dent and old, she brought them one
morning and sobbed bitterly an she
looked nt the quiet face In the peace of
a last slumber. "You was good to mo,"
she said brokenly. "You come to see
me when I wns sick and when my lit
tle girl died, and now 'you nre gone and
I wish you could know how bad I feel
this day," There Is no class distinc
tion In sympathy when grief comes
next door to our hearts.
Those who road yesterday of the Ple
vator accident where a little hoy had
his life crushed out In a terrible man
ner, probably shuddered and looked nt
their own children with a thrill of hor
ror as a vision of what It might have
meant to them, was real for the mo
ment. Then they put the incident out
of their minds as quickly as possible;
It was not pleasant to reflect upon.
I wonder if every day they hnd seen
that handsome little fellow with his
yellow curls and his sunny mnlle as
ho ran in and out of tho halls, proud
of being able to help his father, and
then could have hud one glimpse of
the poor mutilated little form, the fair
curls dampened and darkened by a
dreadful baptism, they could ever
again see an elevator without a sick
ening falntness of the heart, I wonder
If they had seen that father, rocking 11
sobbing little child in his arms, and
sobbing deeply, pitifully himself, as a
strong man sobs, he waited for hl eon
to bo laid at his feet, they could have
turned uside from the printed story of
the tragedy with only a sigh of mo
mentary Interest. It means more to
you when grief comes next door.

Desperate Fight for Life.
Mrs. Nathan Beale says:
Saved Tie from the Insane Hospi
tal as Well as Cured riy
There never wns n remedy bo highly
recommended ns Paine's Cojery Com
pound. There never was n remedy In
such universal demand. It Is popular
and prized In tens of thousands of
homes, because It makes sick people
Paine's Celery Compound has saved
thousands from nervous prostration
and collapse; It has effected wonderful
cures In kidney and liver complaints;
Its victories over rheumatism nnd
neuralgia have commanded the atten
tion and admiration of our best physi
cians. It has cured disease when
everything else has failed. .
Mrs. Nathan Heals, a well' known
lady of Gallup's Mflls, Vt writes as
follows: "For ten months before I
commenced taking Paine's Celery Com
pound, I could not put my foot on the
first round of my chair, only Ave, Inches
from the floor. I ind nearly lost the
use of my left side, and I could not
lift a pound weight with the left hand
without danger of dropping It. Many
times I would lift something at the
table, only to drop It. I hnd 11 pres
sure In the top of my head and a pain
at. the base of the brain, which would
leave me so nervous that I used to tell
my husband I would surely go crazy.
I could not keep still .nt night, and
Sundays were just awful to me. I
found my whole system prostrated, and
It took a long time to build up my
poor, wornout nerves. I think that
Paine's Celery Compound saved me
from the Insane Hospital, as well as
cured my rheumatism.
OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Breadth of Their Foundation and
What Citizens Owe to Them.
From n Recent Speech by President But
ler, of Columbia University.
The schools which are maintained by
governmental authority are established
In the interest of the whole people and
bpcauso of the controlling conviction
that an instructed and enlightened
population is essential to the perpetuity
of democratic Institutions and to their
effective operation. The schools are
therefore a proper charge upon all tax
paying persons and property, and not
merely upon those whose children re
ceive Instruction therein. Xor are they
l'n any sense schools which are provided
for the poor or the unfortunate.
When stated, this principle seems ax
iomatic. Nevertheless, It Is openly or
Impliedly denied with surprising fre
quency. It is safe to say that in all of
our large cities there is a class of per
sons, by no means inconsiderable In
number, who look upon the tax-supported
schools as they look upon alms
houses and asylums. Such persons re
gard the schools as a part of the, com
munity's charitable or philanthropic
equipment. In my view, on the other
hand, the schools are a part of the
community's life. They are not merely
to give relief or shelter to Individuals,
they are to minister to the democratic
ideal. The very children who sit on the
benches are regarded not merely as
children, Interesting, lovable, precious,
but as future citizens of a democracy
with all the privileges and responsi
bilities which that Implies.
We may wish that these schools did
many things differently, we may not
have children to send to their class
rooms; nevertheless they are our
schools because we are American citi
zens, and we owe them our loyal ser
vice as well as our ungrudging support.
Any one who wishes, for personal, so
cial or religious reasons, to have his
child receive a training other than that
which tho tax-supported schools give. Is
at liberty to make such provision for
his child as he chooses; but he Is not
thereby released from the obligation
resting upon him as a citizen to con
tribute to the support ot the tax-sup
ported schools. It follows, too, that the
parents of those who are pupils In the
tax-supported schools have no peculiar
rights In connection with the policy of
those schools that are not shared by nil
other citizens. The schools are for the
people as a whole, not for those of a
district or ward, or of a political party
or religious communion, or for those
who are either poor or rich. We polon
our democracy at Its source If we per
mit any qualification of this fundamen
, THE SLEEPING SICKNESS.
Queer Disease Which British Scien
tists Will Soon Investigate.
From the New York Sun.
The British government Is Investi
gating a mysterious disease which was
first observed, about fifteen years ago,
In native villages along the Congo,
known ns (he sleeping sickness. 'Tho
cause of the malady Is not understood
nor has a cure been discovered. White
men seem to he safe from its attacks,
but the victims among tho natives are
numbered by many thousands. Stan
ley lived for five years on the Congo
and never heard of the dlseuse, which
began to attract attention some years
after he had founded his stations along
the river, Tho mulady has been giad
ually spreading eastward until It has
reached the Hrltlsh territory of Uganda,
where several thousand natives have
died of It within the past year. The
commission sent nut by the British gov
ernment Vlll study the disease In that
The malady Is painless but usually
fatal. The only symptom apparent to
the medical missionary Is nn li resistible
Impulse to sleep, The patient inuy go
to slpep In the midst of a conversation
or while he Is eating his dinner. This
unnatural slumber does not refresh
him, but he slowly glows weaker, The
peilods of sleep become more frequent
and of longer duration, and the patient
usually dies In one of them.
The British commission Is composed
of Dr, Low, who, for some years, has
been Investigating yellow fever In the
West Indies and malaria In the Italian
Campagna; Dr, Christy, who has been
engaged in medical work oi the Niger
and In connection with the plague In
India; and Dr. Castellan! of the Jen
