Christmas Giving.
Daring the past few days the streets
and the shope have been thronged with
buyer* all intent on selecting articles to
pleaae others In most cases the gifts
axe for members of their own family,
bat in every instance the thought of the
purchaser was intent on someone be
sides himself. Thus for the season it
may be said that the whole civilized
world is in pursuit of objects to bring
happiness to others, and thus the spirit
of tb** occasion seems to be a reversal of
the ordinary pursuits which are intent
on gratifying self. ID this absorbing
occupation the origin of the custom is
forgotten and with many the signifi
cance of the holiday is no longer asso
ciated with the great event in the
Christian religion. Thus the Jew vies
with the Gentile iu the benevolence
that seems to permeate the very atmos
phere and cheer tbe closing hours of
the year.
Pessimists, who assert that the world
it growing sordid, should suspend their
sweeping conclusions drawn from the
ordinary relations of men to take note
of sentiment that seems to soften the
asperity of this month and to reveal an
acknowledgement of the brotherhood of
man. Thousands of the gifts may sim
ply express the prevalence of a eastern,
bat there are many instances of self
sacrifice that add blessings to the ex
change of gifts, and the new year opens i
with tbe sense of pleasure that always
» follows the granting of favors.
At Christmas time the whole word ap- ;
pears to be lifted to a higher plane, and
tbe world grows better with each uplift. <
There ia continual hope for the future ;
resulting from the Christmas impulse
to look away from self, eveo though
bat for a short period.
We wish all our readers a Merry
Christmas and a Happy, Prosperous
New Year.
\ » Retrospect of 1005.
The year &at is now drawing to a
close is destined lo stand out in bold
relief as haying witnessed some of tbe
most momentous events in the world s
history Tbe first of these, the peace
of Portsmouth, marked the gathering
in of the fruits of tbe stupendous naval
and military straggle in the Far East,
and the formal entry of tbe Japanese
people into the front rank of the great
powers of the world. By that treaty
Japan won for China and for herself all,
and more than all, for which she took
up arms, and thereby added valuable
political and strategical advantages to
the moral and military prestige that
" she had secured by her successful prose
cution of the war. The indirect re
ralta of the straggle, however, are
greater than those for which the war
waa fought: for if we read tbe signs of
times aright, it will be to the disasters
in Mancharia and in the Sea of Japap
that Russia will be indebted for the
and political upheaval of which
we ate witnesses at this very hoar,
i Much as we deplore the awful excesses
that accompany this straggle, it is oar
belief that out of it tbe Russians will
emerge a free and contented people.
t destined to hold more securely than
•ever their commanding position among
the nations of tbe world. It is entirely
possible that the signing of the Treaty
of Portsmouth marked tbe close of the
< last great war to be waged between
civilized powers. The enormous cost
of modern war, its liability to bring
•bout either a financial or a political
|:i* cataclysm, has given to it a new terror
t Kings, Parliaments and Congresses will
hesitate before they resort to arms as a
final arbitrament. An even sarer pre
ventive of war, and a most hopeful sign
of permanent peace, is found in tbe in
creasing tendency of the nations to
fraternize as man with man Such in
cidents as the recent extraordinarily
friendly receptions accorded to visiting
| v foreign fleets, and particularly the cor
" dial fraternization of the crews as seen
in France and this in country, have a
£ profound significance. Can it be that

►V' the Panama Canal, if we state that this
ia one of the most serious problems,
political, commercial or military, con
| fronting this country to-day ; nor shall
we be accused of undue pessimism if we
suggest that the way in which we have
handled this great problem daring tbe
past few months has added nothing to
our reputation for constructive and ex
ecutive ability in a work of this mag
nitude. There have been resignations
without number, including that of tbe
Chief Engineer; we have appointed
Boards of Control, only summarily to
disband them , we have spent ten mil
lion dollars, even before we know what
;• kind of a canal we intend to build, or
by What particular method we will
t, build it; and finally, after calling to
gether an advisory board composed of
the most representative engineers of the
• world, in order that they may tell us
joat what kind of a canal we thould
construct, we are hysterically threaten
ing to ignore their decision even before
| they have bad time officially to render
it. We are of tbe opinion tbat there
•re joat three things for tbe United
States to do, if it is to maintain its
national dignity and successfully carry
through this gigantic work; the first is
[ f to accept without question the type of
P ~ canal recommended by the Board; the
second, Is to let the work by contract
under the alwolute sui»ervi*ion of a
Chief Engineer; and the third is to vote
him ungrudgingly tbe appropriations
which are necessary to carry on the
• work upon the scale, and by tbe
methods be shall determine. If this be
done, the United States within a single
decade, will possess a sea-level canal,
deep enough and broad enough for any
possible development in tbe size of tbe
abips of the future and capable of giving
I * them unhindered passage from the
Atlantic to the one tidal lock on tbe
Pacific. Moreover if these conditions
are fulfilled, we are satisfied that a sea
level canal will be placed at tbe service
of the country in practically the same
time as one bu'lt witblocks and having
tbe same capacity.— Sci. Am

IttiHslun Notes.
Livonia, one of tbe Baltic provinces
of Russia was the scene of violence last
week—the peasants burning estates and
murdering the nobility, who were
originally from Germany, and not in
sympathy with the natives called Letts.
Tbe city of Riga, the principal seaport
of Livonia, is now controlled by the
Revolutionary Committee, and the
government has ordered a fleet of war
vessels to the harbor.
Massacres of Jews continue all over
tbe Empire, and the revolutionary com
mittees have control of several cities.
Tbe Czar refused the petition of tbe
reactionaries, and will hold fast to bis
proclamation of Oct. 80, guaranteeing a
constitutional monarchy.
Court Witte is greatly disappointed
with the students and others to wli'>ui
he looked for support, and is quoted as
"The emperor is a truly kind and
worthy man, clean in bis life, unselfish,
earnestly laboring for Russia's welfare.
But some of bis kinsmen are among tbe
worst men In Europe, and the emperor
knows it.
"How could I advise my sovereign,
himself a harnane and just man, to lay
the wlii[>s of the Cossacks across the
faces of men and the backs of women
whose economic collapse is trai nable to
grand ducal libertines, liars, thieves and
degenerates I might give him advice
what to do with these wretches If be
asked me for it. but the affairs of the
imperial family are not within the
range of my office."
The correspondent adds that Wltte

An American who arrived at Vienna
from Warsaw, last week, said that

train for Vienna his carnage was stop

coat of sheepskin like that worn by

leave Warsaw," he ssys, "have already i

Arthur Lefflngwell, American consul
at Warsaw, who is .'pending a few dara
in Vienna, although reticent, saems to
be impressed with of th 9
situation at Warsaw. He said:
"The property-owning classes, even
those who are heartilv in favor of revo
lution seem to be in the grip of terror,
fearing the extreme revolutionists, who
are advocating the destruction of life
and property, and who may soon be
able to increase their power for evil.
Even now it is absolutely unsafe to be
on the streets, either by day or by night.
For a long time the newspapers have
not dared to refer to the tragedy, but
now they flout the censor and publish
accounts of these desperate happenings.'
On Saturday night last the Work
men's Council and the League of
Leagues issued a declaration of a gener
al strike to begin immediately, and by
an imperial ukase published next morn

prefects throughout the empir who are

thorized, without consulting St. Peters
burg, to declare a state of siege and if
necessary even martial law.
As most of the provincial authorities
are leactionary officials of the old
regime, the advantage they will take of
such power to terrorize the populace can
be easily imagined, they being in poai
tion to become petty tyrants, and wage
war each in his own particular fashion
against the revolutionists.
Yesterday a call was issued at St.
Petersburg for a general strike throuh
ont Russia, to begin at noon today.
The call is approved by the anion of

The strike order renders every mem

rest and punishment under the new
strike law, and Minister of the Interior
Dnrnovo attempted to telegraph orders
to Moscow to arrest members of the
railway union and of the workmen's
council, but the dispatches were held
up by the railroad telegraphers.
Rep. Hu£E has introduced pension
bills granting D. W. Graham of Butler
$25 a month; Win. Ralston of Zelie
nople, *so: J. L. Beattv of Evans City,
On Thursday last Rep. Dalzell intro
duced a bill which grants to the Lake
Erie & Ohio Ship Canal Companv a
federal charter The measure was pre
pared by the attorneys of the syndicate
of the Pittsburg capitalists who are
now doing the preliminary work on the
canal. While the syndicate now has
charters from Ohio and Pennsylvania,
a federal charter will be of considerable
advantage in pushing the work.
At the Republican conference of
House members it was unanitaously
agreed to admit Indian and Oklahoma
territories as one state. By a vote of
110 to 65 it was decided to also admit
Arizona and New Mexico as one state.
One bill is to cover both propositions, so
there will bo two new states or none.
This action is considered as binding the
Republican members to support the
measure which is in accord with Presi
dent Roosevelt's recommendation.
Oddly enough the debate was con
fined to the nnion of Arizona and New
Mexico and the 65 votes were in opposi
tion to that proposal.
On Saturday last the Senate passed
tLe Canal, emergency bill, calling for
eleven millions.
Senator Dolliver of lowa ha* intro
duced a railroad rate bill in the Senate;
and Rep. Graham of Allegheny a bill
regarding immigrants in the House.
The Cruel CoHsackn.

jockey, J. C. Mitchell, fled from Russia,
lie arrived at New York. Tuesday on
the steamer Bluecher. Mitchell was in
Russia while nnder a contract with
Baron Stover.
"I have had all I want of Russia." he
said. "The Cosoacks are human devils
without one ttaongbt beyond killing. I
saw them charge into a crowd of 5.000
people in Warsaw. They used their
knonts and pistols and jiwung their
sword* at every head within reach.
"I stayed at the Bristol Hotel, in War

ber 17, during the great strike, there
were no cooks in the hotel. The night
of November 15, I was playing billiards
on the second floor. We heard a great
shouting outside, but this had become
so usual that wo paid no attention to it.
Suddenly there was a fusillade of shots
and a crashing of plate glass, then cries
of anger from men and shrieks from
women from the cafe below.
"We ran to the bead of the stuirs and
saw men and women rushing from the
place Some dashed tip the stairs and
others back through the ball to the
rear. While we stood there it bomb
was thrown into the cafe and exploded,
wrecking the ground floor. Another
bomb quickly followed, and the whole
! building seemed to shake.
' Before the sound of the explosion
had died away, the crowd had swarmed

The Debt Which the Inlteil State*
Orre» to Mr«. Ileiuemrar.
The ground on which the Old South
meeting house in Boston stands w.13
the dwelling place of Governor Win
throp. Benjamin Franklin was bap
tized in this meeting house. The voices
of Adams and Hancock and Warren
and Washington have been heard with
in its walls. You will see back of the
pulpit platform and below the quaint
old sounding board the very window
through which General Joseph Warren
came to deliver his famous oration on
the anniversary of the Boston massa
cre, because the crowd in and around
the church was so great he could not
enter by the door.
In this chuach were held some of the
great meetings leading up to tho fa
mous Boston "tea party." Indeed, It
was from this "sanctuary of freedom,"
as it has been called, that the band of
men disguised as Indians started for
the wharf to board the ships and throw
overboard the &ixed tea.
Did you ever hear tho story of how
the Old South was "saved?" Rever
er.ee for historic landmarks did not run
BO high years ago as it does today, and
In our centennial year of IS7G it was
proposed to sell the Old South simply
for the value of its bricks and timbers
and tear it down that a modern busi
ness block might be built on its site.
Indeed, it was 6old—"knocked down"
at auction to a bidder for tho meagor
sum of $1,3151
Suddenly a wave of patriotic feeling
swept over the city of Boston. The
papers and some of the people began
to protest against the tearing down of
the old "sanctuary of freedom," and a
movement was set on foot to raise
funds to buy the church from Its pur
chaser and to buy also the ground on
which it stood. This good plan mighi
never have succeeded had it not been
for one noble and loyal woman in Bos
ton, Mrs. Mary -Hemeuway, of hal
lowed memory. When the difficulty of
securing funds for the purchase of tho
old meeting bouse became known to
her she came forward with a gift of
SIOO,OOO, and thus the old meeting
house was saved to stand as an object
lesson to the children of future gener
Having given such a largo sum to
help save the Old South meeting house,
Mr.i. Ilemepway felt that it should he
something more than a mere silent
inoaumeut. Stie determined that It
should be a real, living force In our
country, and particularly t3 the chil
dren of Boston. She determined that
It should renew and Increuse Its fame
as a" temple of freedom and that Its sa
cred walls should again echo and re
echo to the sound of patriotic utter
ances and that some of these utter
ances should come from the llpa of the
boys and girls of Boston, and thus tho
Old South lecture course and the Old
South prices were established. Each
year a prize of S4O and another of $25
are given to the graduates of the Bos
ton lilgli schools who write the best es
says on historic or patriotic topics. Tho
committee having this work lu charge
announce the subjects In June, just be
fore the schools close, nnd tho competi
tors must submit their essays the fol
lowing January. Then on Washing
ton's birthday there Is a patriotic gath
ering of the school children of Boston
lu the old meeting house, and the
names of the prize winners aro an
nounced.—St. Nicholas.
Uiiofu'i Salt Maralira.
The salt marshes of the Kongo re
glon are to be found lu considerable
number district of Sambalt, and
there are also many of theso marshes
on the left bank of the river Lufubu.
In general they represent a kind of
pocket or rift lu (he soil. The walls of
th« rift show first a layer of blackish
clay mixed with sand and containing
numerous ijuartz and silei pebbles, or
more exceptionally black and white
BheiU, frugineiiti of oyster and mussel.
Then comes a layer of stratified nnd
gray-blue schist. Tho soil of the do
pre-ision also contains schist as tho
greater constituent nnd Is covered by
a layer of sandy clay. In order to col
lect tho suit the natives dig a funnel
shaped hole from six to ten feet in
diameter and about three feet deep.
The eavlly soon tills up with a warm
nnd clear water, which la strongly
charged with salt. It comes up with
considerable pressure, nnd the liquid
•eems to boil. The salt Is partly pre
cipitated at the bottom of the cavity
and mixes with the S'jil to form a
blackish mud. Tho latter Is washed
out with hot water to eitract salt,
which Is then crystallized from tho so
lutlon. The product which is thus ob
tained Is of a salty gray color, and its
taste is more alkaltuo than that of Eu
ropean salt.
