DR. HARRIS AND DIVORCES.
We believe Dr. HARRIS of Buck
nell university gives one of the most
potent reasons for the Increase In
divorce when he says "with the bet
ter education of women and their
capability p self support they will
hot stand the treatment they once
did. So long as it WOB a question.
Of harsh treatment or starving they
would endure much ill treatment,
but education and new avenues of
employment have changed all that."
Dr. HARRIS Is of the opinion that
the fundamental cure for this dia
bolical divorce evil does not He in
doctoring the symptoms as they ap
pear; he believes, rather, that the
real way to uproot the divorce ten
dency consists not in treatment of
the developed complaint but rath
er In "eliminating the cause when
ever possible." He goes on:
"Let the family, the church, the
school develop better husbands and
wives and the number of divorces
will be lessened. There are more
happy homes In the world today than
ever before, and the number is in
creasing, but we cannot help by sub
jecting women to the abuse or nog
lect of lazy or drunken husbands
without the hope of deliverance."
This is all very optimistic and
far be it from us to declare that tho
world could not use more of the
right brand of optimists. We are
forced, however, to Inform the good
doctor that all his Utopian theories
cannot hope to alter human nature.
They cannot hope to crush the lazy
bug, which tho Bucknell gentleman
seems to think furnishes so much
of the soil in which tho divorce erop
flourishes. He is right when ho
placos so vast a proportion of tho
blame on tho Indolence and unwill
ingness to follow a gainful occupa
tion that Is displayed by some few
thousands of American husbands
and fathers; but ho ought to submit
his mind to tho logical reasoning of
that bright citizen of Doylestown
who said, according to one very
veracious newspaper interviewer:
"I don't work because I love to.
I work because I have to. Any
man who tells you ho wants to work
is a liar. I wouldn't do a tap of
work from this, time on If poverty
and my wife didn't both of them
compel me to."
Now, while ho Is less frank In
owning up to It, how about tho man
who has the grit if not the graco to
tell poverty and his wife they both
can go bang?

"I recently traveled over some dirt
roads in a nearby township," re
marked a West Chester man. "The
supervisor or road masters had been
repairing ( i ) them by throwing all
the mud, stones and old Junk out
of the gutters into the centre of the
highway, which made the traveling
even more difficult than It was be
fore the roads were mended. Now,
If they had taken one of the log
drags I see commended by good
road makers and leveled the road
off, the traveling would have been
made easier. The loose stones should
also be picked off. All the public
roads cannot be piked, but some
new improved methods should be
employed In mending the dirt ones."

"I hope the movement to have toll

ed on a highway In this thickly pop
ulated and rich county. There are
enough taxes paid to have all main
roads piked. Toll roads are a pri
vate monopoly, secured by privilege,
and all should be abolished. I hope
our next members of the state legis
lature will support a bill abolishing
toll highways." West Chester Lo

"DAMASCUS THE I1EAUTIKUL."
A City Sufficient Unto Itself Key
stone Traveler's Word Picture.
We landed in Damascus ht one
o'clock In tho morning by reason of
a derailed train. But oven nfter n
Bafe arrival our troubles were not
quite over, for wo wero far from tho
hotel district. The city Is In the
shape of n spoon, the station being
at tho end of tho handle and tho
quarters for foreigners In the bowl,
about two miles distant. There was
one 'advantage about arriving at the
hour wo did, wo wero not beset by
tho usual crowd of hotel runners,
porters and" touts, who sometimes
nearly tear tho travelers' baggage
from his hands nnd who always fight
shrilly with one another over the
spoils In overy eastern city.
It seemed when we landed that tho
200,000 people of Damascus were
all asleep except our cabmen, but
we found In the, heart of the city
that they were beginning to stir In
preparation for the now day. Orien
tals are early risers. The thousands
of dogs wero still asleep, sprawled
in the middle of the narrow streets
and clear across tho sidewalks, so
that one had to pick his way to
avoid stepping on them. Our cab
mon, who wanted to get to bed nnd
so kept his fine horses on n gallop
most of tho way, struck ono of these
dogs with his whiplash to avoid run
ning over It nnd we left the many
creatures howling far behind us, aB
one man of our party coughed 125 of
them as we sped out of sight. -
The people of Damascus are anx
ious that you should see the beauty
of their city, and the traveler does
not fail to respond, for has he not
crossed barren mountains and desert
wastes to reach the groves and gar
dens? They take you to the top
of the mountain northeast of the
city, where they say Mahomet stood
In his youth, before he entered on
his mission, and looked upon the
same sight. The difference between
you and the Prophet Is that he re
fused to enter the city at his feet,
saying that there could be but one
Paradise and that if he should go
Into this one of Damascus he would
never want to go to that which is
above. But Mahomet had never
seen America. We have some stones
in the Alleghenies, but there are
many parts of Palestine and Syria
that would make Pennsylvania look
like a prairie. No wonder the Pro
phet thought he had discovered the
original Paradise. All over the
plain there are fertile gardens, wher
ever the Irrigation ditches conduct
the waters. Above that point, mark
ed by a sharp line, the sand of the
desert. . ..
But when you come down from the
mountain, the beautiful gardens are
hidden by walls of mud and reeds,
the streets are slippery with filth
or choking with dust, the many
mansions turn forbidding walls of
adobe brick to the street that hide
tho beauty which Is within, the dogs
snarl at you because you are a
Christian and the fleas are virulent
because you are fresh meat, so that
you are not tempted to stay taway
from Heaven to live in Damascus.
What Gen. Phil Sheridan would have
done I do not know.
Damascus Is well satisfied with
Itself, and perhaps It right. It is
evidently more prosperous than any
other Inland city In the east and it
owes less to our modern civilization
than other cities. For thousands of
years it has maintained this com
mercial supremacy, while it has
watched Its rivals rise and decay.
Jewish, Egyptian, Assyrian and Per
sian cities have lived and died, marl
time cities whose names are now for
gotten have bullded fleets that sail
ed to the ends of the earth, while
Damascus still stands on the site
of its ancient triumphs.
Our party was surprised to find
Damascus so pleasing. Tho Mos
lems were distinctly more friendly
than thoso in any other community
where we stopped. Tho children
smiled at us. Instead of cursing us
or pestering us for coppers. There
wero fewer beggars and no lepers
that I saw. In their own way the
people seemed prosperous and con
tented. In a word, the city seemed
sufficient unto Itself.
Damascus Is a great commercial
center. Today, as of old, its caravan
trains reach out towards tho ends
of tho Asiatic world. Its merchants
nro marvels of shrewdness, but their
methods aro not always thoso that
our business morality would com
mend. Jew, Christian and Moslem
aliko aro chargeablo with the same
faults. Tho bazaars aro a wonder
land, but It takes but time and per
sistence to secure a bargain. Even
the merchant of our party who
knew American nnd European goods
did not feel suro when asked to buy
that ho was not offored a gold-brlck.
Ono of tho great Industries of Da
mascus is the manufacture of inlaid
furnlturo. Much of this work Is
done In tho tiny shops, often less
than ten feet square, In tho bazaars,
Sometimes tho workmen sit squat
upon the pavement shaping or polish
ing tho dainty bits of work like that
for salo upon tho shelves. But tho
very llnest work is produced In larg
er establishments, somewhat like
Idealized factories. There aro sevor
al in tho city whose product must
represent hundreds of thousands of
dollars per year.
Wo visited such a place whero'
some two hundred persons were em
ployed. They wero engaged In brass
and wood working. Tho product
was marvellous. Tako a single ex
ample, a combination secretary and
table which gavo five- different sur
faces for card, chess or backgam
mon playing. Each one of these
surfaces was covered with hn fln.
est kind of geometrical designs, like
a piece of Jflwelery, Inlaid with dif
ferent colored woods nnd mother of
pearl, the whole nollshed llko n mlr.
ror. Some of the woods are kept
ror years in oil, until brought to per
fection for this work. It need hnnl-
ly bo said that everything Is done
by hnnd, so that one such piece rep
resents months or even years of
most patient nnd skillful labor.
But sad to say. of tho two hun
dred persons ot work In brass, sll
fllagree or Inlaid work a great
majority were children, many of
them only eight or ten years old.
One tiny creature hammering sliver
wire witu rare skill could not have
been a day over six. I could nnt
enjoy the beautiful vases and tables
In the show rooms for thlnklnc of
tho child-toilers In the hot, dusty
rooms above. But I remembered
that In America thero were similar
scenes and I wondered whether we
had made as much progress .as we
think we have In the centurion Hint
separate our civilization from that of
the ancient city of Damascus?
in the bazaar a boy ran after us
from his father's shon to sell us n
doll's cradle like one he was pol-
lsning and In his eagerness broke It.
When we left his fnth er was rnm-
fortlng him and wiping away his
tears, in America boys do not work
for their fathers any more. The
longer I think of It. the better off
the Damascus boy seems.

Possibly when the electors of Penn
sylvania come to choose a governor
and other state officers this Novem
ber they may be confronted bv six
full tickets. The Republicans, Dem
ocrats and Prohibitionists have al

in all probability the United Labor

The sixth ticket Is looming un in
the American party, now being fos
tered by former State Treasurer John
O. Sheatz, Rudolph Blankenburg and
Henry C. Nlles. These three men
want an Independent ticket nomi
nated. Sheatz suggests former May
or George W. Guthrie of Pittsburg
for governor and John McSparren of
Lancaster county for secretary of in
ternal affairs. He says the lieuten
ant-governor should come from Phil
adelphia, but he modestly refrains
from mentioning himself for that
place. His slogan Is "workers, not
talkers," and to these must give way
men "saturated with the candlda
torlal microbes." This would seem
to bowl out some of the prominent
leaders in the independent move
