American prisoners to force a recog
nition of bis Government so des
patches say. It is scarcely probable
that be is a man of such smll intel
lect as that would indicate.
Pbesident McKinley says that con
sidering the facts surrounding the
Phillipine Inlands situation, there is
only one course open to pursue and
that is the prosecution of the war
till peace baa been brought about. ,
Should Cuba, Porto Rica and the
Phillipine Islands become annexed to
the United States, free trade inter
course would take place just as it
does between the states of Pennsyl
vania and New York and all the oth
er states of the Union.
The people of Utah are talking of
electing Mrs. Mat tie Haghes (Jannon
a member of the United States Sen
ate, which if done would make Utah
a political novelty unsurpassed by
any state cf modern times. It would
be a spectacle to pee, a Polygamist
LOCgressman and a woman United
States Senator from one and the
same State at the same time.
The first letters' from soldiers in
the American Army in the Phillipine
Islands were written when (be army
lay close around Manila. The uader
tone of the letters were against the
Filipinos as a people in every par
ticuUr. But letters that have come
sicce the Army has been moved in
to the interior of the country give
another and better Bide to the habits
of the people. They indicate that
. thepeopleare much attached to home,
are cot rovers and are industrionp,
all of wb?.h it is hoiw'- KTrue for
-v me
.nn that the opportunities
to be given them by the American
government are better than.ihey
have ever bad.
The Filipinos wten the American
moves on tbem run a-vay to fight
some other day. I-, is different with
the Boers when the British move on
them they stand to fight and slay.
Young Englishman are getting their
training in South Africa for the wars
of a generation to come just 86 the
young Americans received their
training at -Manila and Santiago for
the wars of a generation to come-.
The American Generals who fought
the Rvolution of 1776 received their
training in the French and Indian
war. J it had not beea for the train
ing of the Americans in the French
and Indian war, the American Rev
olution could not have taken place
and become a success. The Ameri
can generals and naval commander,
who defeated Spain were trained in
the war of the slave-holders' rebel
lion. So in such cveDts as in other
events history repeats itself.
There is a great deal of talk
among some people about the hu
manity or rather the inhumanity of
the war in the Philippine Islands.
The man who talks that way con
scientiously is to be respected, for
war is the essence of inhumanity.
The noncombatant, the man who is
conscientiously against war is of a
higher type of manhood than has
lieen able to bring himself forward
as a controli ng factor in the manage
ment of the affairs of nations.
There .a a professed abhorance of
war among nations who claim to
be civilized, but their profession
goes no further than an expression
of regret. In practice thejr are
warlike. What hypocrits the
American people are when they
denounce expansion. They came
to America with the Bible and the
rifle, and during the period of
almost three hundred years they
have leen using the Bible for their
text and their rifle for their expan
sion. They have exterminated the
native nice and taken their poses
sions. So it may le just as well to
keep quiet on the question of fight
ing the Filipinose, for it is simple
keeping up the manner of expan
sion and tjouquest thot the Euro
lean race started in with wheu
they came to America.

weasels and ferret, ttaid a pro
fessional rat catcher, "are about the
dame thine. The imported ferrets
t rallied to the business are larger thun
the weaseL that is all. After 1 am
through with rat catching I use my fer
rets to hunt rabbits oit of brush piles,
hay and straw stacks, which is a prof
itable business wbcu rabbits ere
plenty. What you call rabbits orer
here we iu England call hares.
w neu a man once starts iu as a
professional rat catcher and gets to
understand training aud working fer
rets, there is such au attraction iu the
trade that he never willingly gives It
up. It's a prolitable business withoat
too much comiH-titiou."
"Do the ferrets ever bite yout"
"It's a very careless and awkward
man that gets bitten by a trained fer
ret. Wlieu one is bitten by an enrag-
. eu ferret, the bite is or a very severe
1 character, extremely paiuful and slow
, to heal.
As the rat catcher talked a C-inonth-
old ferret, his fiery little eyes gleam
ing like living gems, was crawling over
his lap and trying to get Iu under his
coat. -This fellow," said the rat
catcher, "is as gentle as a kitten aud
' likes to have his back ruhlcd aud to
. bo caressed as well as any cat you ever
saw. When the ferret bites a rat's
' neck, he knows exactly what lie Is do-
lug. and his front teeth, cutting. like
razors, go right through the Jugular.
"Of course we generally imir.zle them
when we send them In after rats, aud
we always muzzle them when we send
them in after rabbits. If their teeth
wer! at liberty, they would ki'.l the
first rat or rabbit they met and would
remain in the hole suckiug its blood.
Wheu we put a ferret iuto a house aft
er rats, we stop up all the holes at the
outside of the house except one or two.
Over these we place bugs, and the fer
rets, driving the game before them,
run the rats into the liags. We keep
the ferret without his ordinary meals
before using him, aud this makes him
keener iu his chase.
"It's mighty easy to sitoil a ferret.
After a young ferret has lieeu badly
bitten by a rat, as sometimes happens,
you can't get him to go into a hole
muzzled. Itut wheu a ferret is full
grown and has the skill and courage
that he should have he is a holy terror
to rats and Is a valuable animal. I
would not sell a well trained ferret for
$50, the price of a good horse. Such a
ferret I should be willing to put in a
pit with 50 rats, and he could in a short
time kill every one of them. Hats are
great fighters wheu they are cornered,
but no other animal of the same size
has as much courage as a ferret or
"In England the largest ferrets are
called polecat ferrets and are a cross
of the two animals, which are much
alike. In this country the word pole-
cm is uppneu io mc skliiik, an entirety
different animal. The word polecat
Is supposed to be an abbreviation of
Polish cat, and the animal abounds
all over Euroiie. The mink isnuch
like the weasel, except that it Is larger.
aud many depredations that are at
tributed to the weasel are committed
by the mink. All these animals prowl
by night, and they frequently go many
miles In search of food, even coining
into towus Of") the suburbs of cities."

fiexible-4Mtd.Vr-f(s extraordinary length T
of neck, the closeness of its fur, its
keenness of scent. Its wonderful agili-
ty and quickness of movemeut, all ex
cited his admiration.
An American writer says: The com
mon weasel has sometimes been
caught and carried off by large hawks
and owls. Sorry was the experience
of the captor in such cases, lie has
caught a Tartar. The. captive will bite
into the sides of the enemy, so that
both will fall to the ground, the bin
mortally wounded and the wearel usu- j
ally comparatively unhurt.
The weasel's courage in defending It- '
self when attacked by birds of prey Is !
universally admitted, nor is it deficient I
in fierce opposition to dogs and even !
men wheu its nest is invaded by el- j
tlier. It usually kills for food, biting '
through the Ticail Into' the brain with '
sucii expertuess that its victim can
scarcely utter a cry of pain. It usually
cats the brain first; then the rest of
the liody follows. In pursuing mice,
rats and moles it follows them into
their runs or holes. A weasel's
proximity to a poultry yard Is not to
lie desired. But in barns, hayricks
niul grain stacks it is decidedly ad
vantageous, ns It will surely extemi
nate or drive away rats and mice."
The weasel's characteristics are not
ed in two American sayings, "Catch
a weasel asleep" and "Sooner trust a
weasel with eggs." Stories are told j
that a weasel will w.itclr a hen on the '
nest for an hour, waiting for a freshly I
laid egg. Indianapolis News.

A ctirlous case of lightning destruc
tion took place at Cntcliina, an Im-IH-rial
summer residence not far from
St. retersbttrg, where stood a stone
column r0 feet high, held together by
Iron ancles. When rain fell, more or
less water pentrated the stones in the
Interior of the monument. One day it
was struck by lightning, and instantly
the whole column iMsap)eared from
view, killing a lone sentry on guard.
The only explanation is that the heat
of the lightning instantly generated

A singular ' transaction took
place in Lehigh county .court. It
was a prayer to recover a hone.
Therr was a suit pending in the
court about the horse.
Babert F. Thomas had. brought
suit to recover the part payment
he had made on a horse. He
bought the animal from Peter Ger
man of Heidelberg township for
$80; paid $50 on biro and the I bal
ance $30 was to be paid in sixty
days. The horse was guaranteed
sound. Later Thomas returned
the horse and wanted his 50, say
ing the horse was not as represent
ed; that the animal "knuckled."
German denied this and refused to
give I ack the money. Thomas
then brought suit. The case came
up before Judge Albright. Thom
as took the stand, took the oath,
and before answering the first ques
tion as to where he lived, turned
to the learned 'tfiidge and asked
whether he could" offer prayer.
"Certainly," said Judge Albright
with a quiet nod, and while on the
witness stand Thomas prayed
"O, Lord, Thou who rulest over
all and art'illing that all shall
have justice, we appeal to Thee in
this our trouble to lend ear .and,
give Thy presence,
all of us to tell the

honorable court and to this jury:
that I liought that dark bay horse
for s()i that German said he. was
soli I and sound; that I paid 50
ou him: that the horse was not sol
id aud sound as repsented, and
that by right aud justice this court
and jury should compel German to
give me my money back and re
ceive his horse back again, as the
liorse is now just as 1 bought him.

The Story of One Skuws
the Kew
York Kukaase.
There is- a story still told to visitors
to the New York Cottou Exchange
which always amuses its tellers quite
as much as its hearers. It concerns a
very superb specimen of the cottou
plant which was brought Into the ex
change one October morning years ago
and placed in the ccutcr of the pit
around which gather every day the
men who buy nud sell millions of bales
of the white staple every mouth.
There had been bail weather iu Tex
as that season, with reports of irrep
arable damage to the crop, but this
suiHM'b plant, laden with bolls through
out Its six feet of height and coming,
as It did, from Waco, in the most Im
portant cotton section of the Ine Star
State, was exhibited as conclusive
proof that the stories of a ruined crop
were certainly false. All New York's
big cotton operators came to look at
it anil to admire it, and most of them
remained to sell a few thousand bales.
"If that is what Waco can produce.
Jhey said, "the Texas crop alope will
! be oig enough ' to put cotton dowu a
! cent or two per pouad."
Late in the day, however, there
strolled into the exchange a shrewd
old farmer from oue of the cotton
states east of the Mississippi. lie bad
heard of six foot cotton plants from
Texas, and he wauted to see one. A
single look at this specimen was suffi
cient. "Humbug." he said. "That plant Is
made of wax, and It grew in South
Fifth avenue."
And so It proved. The hoax had
demonstrated what its authors assert
ed, that very few iieople in New York,
even among cotton brokers, would
know a cottou plant if they saw oue.

Haw the Oak Will (inn.
There are trees which would seem to
substantiate the theory of some sci
entists tbat there ia no reason why a
tree should ever die unless destroyed
by unfavorable conditions or accident.
The oak, for example, will live as a
sapliug for ages until given opportu
nity for growth. There ia an old say
ing to the effect that if a pine forest is
cut dowu au oak forest will grow,
and this Is said to lie literally true.
Many of the acorns carried into the
pine woods by birds and squirrels are
left to sprout in the ground. As the
tiny saplings grow browsing natives
of the forest shades nibble off their
tender leaves. Again and again new
leaves are put forth, only to serve as
food for hungry deer or moose or, oth
er marauding creatures.
And so, hid- !
den from sunlight, deprived, as it
would appear, of every essential of
life, the little plants live on. and when
at last the pines are felled and the sun
light reaches them they begin their era
of growth.

Tkt Earliest Beast.
Probably the ugliest beast in the
world is a monkey, a grewsotue look
ing animal called the bearded saki.
This Is so utterly grotesque a beast
that it would scarcely tie safe to let a
child or nervous person see it. The
ugliness is not of au amusing kind, but
of an evil, sinister nature. The beast
has a sort of beard and a countenance
unlike anything else in shape and lines.
The monkey Itself is not particularly
savage, but Is so hideous tliat the na
tives of Its country. South America,
say that no beast of prey, however
hungry, will tackle It. Even a hungry
Jaguar will starve in a cageful of sakis.

spend their honeymoon in the
depths of the mountains and

five days and nights are
iwbi to I
sight, after which they come back
to everyday life.
There is another marriage cus
tom which is worth describing.
Instead of the youth and maiden
being dragged, up the nut ladder,
they are made to climb two sap
lings that grow near each other.
Then an elder of the group grasps
the saplings and draws them to
gether until the heads of the young
couple touch, with a kiss or a
bump, according to the force used.
This makes them maa and wife.
