Could anything be more delightful
♦h«Ti the career of a drop of water?
Think of it: To sparkle in the dew. to
purl and babble in the brook, to float
languidly on the atmosphere in the form
of vapor, to ride in the stonu-cloud and
tumble over the foaming cataract' To
be wooed back to heaven by the rays of
tbe 6nn, to fall on the parched earth
and give life and vigor to vegetation, to
slake the thirst of the weary traveler, to
be transformed into steam to drive
steamship and locomotive, to journey
through creeks and rivers to the sea,
bearing upon ycur bosom the commerce
of a world, to roam about among the
fishes and monsters of the deep, to ride
upon tbe foam-crested breakers, to
fpi««li against the rocks of every shore,
to be frozen in ice-bergs and cryetalized
is snow flakes, to romp with the bathers
on every beach, and to be absolutely in
destructible and immortal: Wouldn t
yon like to be a drop of water?
Well, if that is any comfort, it might
as well be understood at once that you
are about three-fourths water. A
chemical analysis of a human body
•hows that we are largely composed of
water. The average man consumes
annually 1500 pounds of water, 800
pounds of dry food and 800 pounds of
oxygen. This becomes a part of his
anatomy and is eliminated and re
newed constantly, keeping up a con
tinual process of destruction and re
pair. In this way a man may be com
pared to a stream of water, which
while preserving the same general
appearance, is a perpetual succession of
new material.
Water is the principal constituent of
animal life. No seed will germinate
without moisture, and no cell will
develop unless it is supplied with a
proper amount of water. Therefore,
men and brethren let us fill the gourd
and drink!— Spirit.
Pittsbargers will try to secure the
Republican National Convention of next
year. They think they now have am
ple hotel accommodations for the vast
crowd that would attend, and also two
large halls—Duquesne Garden and the
Expo. Music hall—either of which are
large enough to seat all the delegates.
AFTER all, it takes Japan to get np a
first-class international complication
without notice. Here is the steamer
Stanley Dollar, of British registry,
owned by an American and carrying a
Russian cargo from a Chinese port, pre
vented by a Japanese gunboat from en
tering the Corean port of Yongampbo.
Isn't that a mix-up?
THE "Cave of Giants" is the name
which has been given to a .new mam
moth cave discovered in southeastern
CWtfoniia in the heart of tbe Provi

covered by George L. Berg, to whom its
existence was revealed by a native In

THE C. 8. cruisers Brooklyn and San
Francisco reached the port of Beirnt m
Syria, last Friday, and bad hardly
dropped anchor till they learned that
the seat of trouble had been transferred
to Constantinople, where the "insur
gents" were threatening the foreign
legations. The "sick man of Europe"
seems to be in a bad way, internally, at
present; while in Macedonia his army
Is butchering people by the thousand,

TRIAL by jury has recently been
abolished by tbe Coriftress of Costa Rica
upon tbe ground that tbe people of that
country are too ignorant, or that they
are toe much controlled by personal or
political prejudices, to be trusted to give
just, intelligent and impartial verdicts
That statement is pretty bard upon the
people of Costa Bica, but tbere is no
raason to doubt its truth. Somehow or
Other tbe Latin races seem to lack the
qualities which are essential to the effl
cient and satisfying - performance if
jury duty.
Blue law of PeuiiMylvania.
The blue law of this State, passed and
approved April 22, 171#I, is of interest at
