Time to Quit Gloating Ovor That
Gentleman's Misfortunes.
1'iom tho Manila Times,
Is It not just nboul time, If tho slang
phinso may be pardoned, to "ring off"
on this constant milking mock of
Agulnnldo and holding his name up to
lldlculo and laughter? Sutely vp are
not such a puny people its to take de
light In crowing over and huinlllatlng
a fallen and vanquished eneinj 1 Sutelv
v."e can affotd to leave Agulnuldo with
his own humiliation and rcfinln from
intruding our jibes and scores upon
his solitude! Surely we have taunt
ed and tormented him long enough!
Sttiely there is no joy In again bruis
ing the broken reed! If wo have not
the manliness and consideration to rec
ognize siich htues ns lie possesses, let
us at least cull a halt to this perennial
l'.u tiding of his shoitcomlngs and
weaknesses. As a nation, wo have not
been given to such littleness; and It 111
becomes us to bemoan out solves to It
now. Hvon the felon who lies In a
murderer's cell is uccorded some meas
uio of pity! the hound disdains
to wound and worry Its helpless quarry!
And what gieat sin has Agulnnldo
committed? His recoid, as lecords go
in these Islands, Is a clean one. Even
his worst enemies, those who have toin
his reputation to tntteis, pilloried and
pelted his character, and glee'd and
gloated over his downfall and misfor
tunes, can point to but one dnik blot
tho Luna assasblnatlon and oven his
Implication In that Is cloudj-. Then in
the balance with this let us place that
Inchlent of the coup which led to his
capture, when, heailng that several
American prisoners were being brought
in triumph before him, he otdered that
they be taken to the neaiest United
StatP3 army post, set at liberty, and
each given flftj peso3.
But it Is not the Luna assassination
which feeems to he tho prune cause for
trio ridicule or condemnation poured
upon him bj his detiactots. It appeals
that something in the way of contiast
between his foimer high estate and his
present degradation gives the motive
for jest. But suiely Agulnnldo, humble
and dispbteeined, has tended to ledeem,
if redemption b" necessaij-, Agulnnldo
haloed and tiiumphant. Since his le
tirement and seclusion, the fallen heio
of a fallen tepubltc has maintained
hinibelf in a manner which musr com
mand lespect. Bitter as must be the
leflections and expeiioncp of his pies
ont life, ho has yet pie.served a cahn
nebs and dignity foieign to many in
like place a calmnobs and dignity as
becoming ab ever his gloiy and gieat
ness. AVhoio one would expect a l a fl
ing at lato and excel ation at fortune,
he finds an equanimity and leblgnation
which compel svmpathj- and enforce
iespe,t. Just a night or two ago, when
pressed once mow to exhume feomo of
the intPiesting but evll-&melliiig skele
tons ot the inmincction davs, he le
plled with dlgnltv "I do not caie to
talk pbout tlwe tnings which aio past."
Have wo pulogied Agulnnldo too
much.' Pel haps we'h.'vc. But when
wc spo this constantly contemptible
xpitllrg of i ldlcula and abuse upon hl.i
name, we cuiuot help tho eipip.sjlon of
a feellrg of protest and dlbdain. Suio
1' we can now bear to leave tho fallen
leader alone in the valley of tho bhn
dow of his humiliation, and not on any
and pyeiy occasion lead him foith to
make a brectacle for tho thoughtiG-s
and jepilng multitude. AVo have surely
outgiov.n bitch pitiable rejoicing . as
taii'o fioni the Roman tiluinnhs and
I he days of the Philistines, and can
foirgo tho gloating? which belong only

How It Relieves Congenital Disloca
tion of tho Hip Joint.
Fioin the Xew Yolk Sun.
In the early development ot a child
the thiee bones which are to foim the
large hip bone of one side of the body
aie not united but giow separately and
giaduallj- become haidencd and unified.
When development is natural and com
plete the point wheie these thiee bones
join is In the bottom of a cup-bhaped
cavity, called the socket, In which the
lounded head of the thigh bone Is
held by stiong Hgainentb. If, fiom any
cause, development is interfeicd with, u
failure almost alwayt takes place
wheie this cup-shaped eavlty or sock
et should be. When theio Is no well de
veloped socket to hold the hone'' of the
thigh In place the strain on tho liga
ments when the child begins to walk
Is so great that they ate sti etched ab
normally, and finally theie is a dis
placement of the head of tho bone
thiough tho Insufllclent capsule. Tho
surgeon has, therefore, to deal not only
with a dislocated joint, but an undevel
oped socket, unci the operation is in
tended to bilng tho head of the bono to
the plnco wheto tho deptesslon should
be and so hold well against the soft
ened tlbsues at the pioper point until
bj piessure It foims n mote or less com
plete bocket. Moie satlsfactoiy icsultn
me looked for In children under ! or ti
yenis of ago than in those who ate
For lite opei ation the child Is made
insensible and unconscious by an nn
aesthetlo, mid Is placed upon a Hi in
table, bquarely upon the back, while the
pelvis or hip bones ot both sides of tho
body me held Immovable by tho hands
of assistants, Tho opeiator, holding tho
thigh firmly, bends it at the hip and
upon the abdomen until the thigh bono
ib about peipendlcular to the level of
the table. It Is then catrled slowly
and foiclbly outwnid or away fiom the
mlddlo lino of the patient's bodj, then
svvnyed to and ftn with gwiduully ln
ci easing foico until by sti etching or
tearing tho muscles and ligaments at
the joint, It is can led outward so fur
that the thigh is nlnuist patallel with
tho surface of the opeiatlng table,
When, by this manoeuvie, the muscles
mid capsule have been sufllclontly
etiotclted or torn, the head of the hone,
which Is now neur the place wheie thu
socket should be, nitty be felt to have
slipped over the edge of this shallow
saucer uud Into the slight concavity,
Falling In this the same movements mo
tepeated, tho limb being can led fetill
fuither In tho various dliectlons above
given. AVhen finally the head of the bone
Is felt to have passed into the deptes
slon for tho socket, It Is carefully held
In this position unit an effmt made to
deepen the socket by seml-rotatlon of
the bono fiom light to left, boring ihe
head of tho thigh Into and deepening
the cavity, A plaster of pails encase
ment Is now applied and worn for from
six to nlneNinontlis. After a week or
two, or as soon as tho sensitiveness of
the joint will peimlt, the patient Is en
couraged to will1 upon tlie leg of the
affected side.
Afilcan Tiulsms nnd Their Similar
ity to Ancient Euiopenu and Latin
Platitudes Same Idea Tinils Many
Tonus of Expiesslon.
Fiom tho Loudon SlutiUitid. ,
Xot the least Interesting section of
the proverbial philosophy of many peo
ples Is that In which wo find quaint
parallels to common sayings existing
In some form or other neatly eeiy
wheie. These, no doubt, have an Inde
pendent otlgln, and their Intel eat lies
in the fact that while tho samo
thoughts among widely dlffeient pco
pics aie neccssailly cNpiossed In vety
similar terms, bo that the parallel can
bo seen at a glance, they frequently In
volve the pccullailtles of their enviton
ment. Thus, where we should say that
a man Is "hoist with his own petard,"
the Africans says, "AA'lth the ho's long
tall the ho (a long-tnlled moitkej) Is
bound," and thd Htij thins have it, "The
yam .lnc3 bind the ynma." Again, the
pioveib, oilglnally from the Gieck, In
common use in Dm ope: "The master's
eyo makes the hoi so fat," has tho
peculiar AA'cst Indian tendering: "The
garden fur (fiom the master's house)
tho gnmbo spoils." "You can't get
blood from a stone, or from a beet, nor
brecks from a Highlander," finds ex
pression In the tropical Indies as "Tho
pumpkin vino does not yield the cala
bash." Even In lesaid to tho matter
of "going before the beak" the Hast
Under and the AVest Indian have simi
lar terms, for w hero the former says of
n friend that ho was "pinched," or
"pulled," the latter observes that "they
pressed his tall." To cull a few par
allels ut landom it is only necessary to
look at some touches of naturo which
make the whole woild kin, and regaid
them from v.ulous natlonul stand
points. For Instance, the Idea that "lie
nepds must go when the devil dilves"
Is univeisallj recognized. Sajs Quas
hee when ho would plead an excuse for
being devll-dtlven into petty lnicony:
"The stomach has no ems," nnd "The
empty bag cannot stand upright."
A Negro Version.
The classical and homely tiuth,
"Dilve out natuic with a pitchfork and
she will lehirn," is recognised among
many a negio tribe in the quaint say
ing, "A mnn thnt keeps the bit els away
keeps them away, but a pretty face
cannot bp Kept away." "Only the wear
er knows wheie the shoe pinches," is
conveyed quite aptly by the negro in
his pioveib: "Only the dead man
know 3 wheie the giae is too nairow,"
and "The bottom of the ship knows
best how the sea piesses" Our famil
iar saj'ings about i mining after two
hares and falling to the ground between
two stools ib again paialleled and cap
ped by the African pioveib: "The
ilder of two hoises splits asundoi "
And heie is the occasion to state that
oui object is not to multiply instances
simply because they aie paiallels, but
to point out those which, like the one
last mentioned, aie quaint, apt, liiim
oi uus, and possessed of the biilllant
power of "going one bettei." And in
doing tjiis it will scaicely be necessaiy
to attempt any kind of classification or
order, for, though it is true that gems
of speech look well whpn thej' mo dex-teiouxlj-
set In an oiatoi's discourse, It
Is equally ttue that thev have their
beauties when massed in heterogeneous
profusion. To begin, thou, anjwheio,
the English saving, "Don't do as I do,
but do as I tell jou," is good; but the
Dutch, "The monk pleaches against
thieves with tho goose in his larder,"
is better, and best of all is the Spanish,
"The friar condemns the yiiet with the
pudding up his sleeve."
Chinese Wisdom.
AVheie we say, "If you want a thing
done, do it yomself," tho AVest Indian
gets a shaele ahead with the advice,
"Send a dog and the dog will send his
tall," and the Armenian, "If jou send
a messenger on an eirand, go with
liiin," and the astute, unbelieving Chin
aman, who, like his proverbial Image
maker, puts no faith elthpr in tho gods
oi In tho messengets of tho gods, "for
he knows what they me made of," sums
up the situation in a way that perhaps
Is as coneut ns It Is sweeping: "If you
want a thing done.',' he sa-s, "go yout
self; if not, send." "Still unlets run
deep," it not one of the best bundled
pioveibs, is ceitalnly better than the
Tuikish sajing: "Mlsttust the water
that does not waiWe, and the bltd that
does not ehlip." It lacks, nevettheless,
a ceitaln element of paiado: which
would have made It as near perfection
as a proverb might be. It Is merply be
cause tho following parallel possess this
oloment Unit we presume to mention
them in the bamu breath with our own
pioveib. Saj's the African: "Bewme
of a bllent man; ho has a btass band
in his mouth." The Ainblnn with his
meditative and Inltospectlve habit un
dets this ns: "Defend us from tho
winth of tho mild In bphlt,;' and var
ious savage ttlbe3 of South und C'en
ttal Africa haw the bomowhat lematk
ablo patallel: "Silence hath a mighty
noise." II goes without saying that all
the nations of the world fotmed the
same opinion about a woman long, long
ago, and up to tho present
none ot them havo been any
reason to alter It, But, whether this
opinion In which they all concur is con
cealed or revealed In ptovprbs, It would
bo nn Insult to the renders reason and
common sense to state. As tor tho
proverbs themselves, which can leadlly
be distinguished as Hue or false at
sight by the clover student of human
natuie, they yield a good hat vest ot
A woman, a dog and a walnut tie,

when they say In Fife that "the next

"honest men marry soon, but wise men

In glancing at some instancesof pio
veiblal patallelism we begin to' get an
uncomfoi table feeling that possibly
many of our choicest sajings are not
leally independent eptesslons of ideas
which havo occutied to the Chlnamau
and Pentvian as well as to the peoples
in between, but that they havo actually
been bonowed bj us fiom distant
souices and without acknowledgement.
Veij- grave Is the uneasiness on this
point caused by the fact that such an
essentially English set of lhymes as
"AVho Killed Cock RoblnV" is taken al
most bodily from a section of the Hin
du Ramaj-ana entitled tho "Dream of
King," a work which was hoary
befoie the fast English Cock Robin of
any note was thought of. From thl3
lact wo begin to doubt also whether
tho well-know n "I do not love you, Dr.
Fell," Is a lespectable, law-abiding par
allel, or a diessed up plagiarism ot the
Aiabian saying which runs ns follows:
"I eat it not, I eat not Tutkish corn.
Though it have much coconnut, I eat
it not. Say not It is good, I cat It not;
yet It hints me not. T eat it neither
with fat of meal nor with much curry.
I eat it not. It likes mo not." But to
puisuo this theory any fuither Is to In
duce an unhealthy skepticism.
