~ lilililll IIIIlll I I I Ill 8AGUAC] CRESCERT. The latest census shows that there are 420,274 horses in Denmark, 18g for every 100 acres under cultivation and 195 per 1,000 inhabitants; the sheep number' 1,058,656, which is 281 per 100 acres and 456 per 1.000 inhabitants. Denmark is an agTieultural country. ,About three-fourths of the population are engaged in the cultivation of the aoil. Copenhagen is the only city of any size. Princess Clementine d'0rleans, who is now the only survivor of the large family of Louis Philippe, has cele- brated her eighty-fourth birthday at Schlos~s Ebenthal, her seat near Vien- na, whither she has just relearned after a long stay at Mentone Princess Clementine married Prince Augustus of Sax-Coburg-Gotha, a brother of the late king dowager of Portugal, and a first cousin of Queen Victoria and of the prince consort. The,Missourl egg factory of ~prlng- field handles about 50,000 dozen eggJ a day, all of which are candled before entering the factory. About three wagon loa~ of eggs are rejected each day and hauled outside of the city limits where they are dumped. A man living near the dumping ground has collected enough c~ickens hatched by the weather from eggs thus thrown away to stock a chicken farm. Every day for a month or more he has been carrying a number of chickens home from the dumping ground, where they had been hatched by the unprecedented heat. Persons interested in wild flowers are endeavoring to create--and to or- ganize--a sentiment for the protection of our native plants, especially near large cities. The pondqily, trailing aroutus, native orchids, fringed gen- tian and many of the evergreens have been gathered in Massachusetts for sale in such quantities, and so steadily sought by frequenters of suburban woods, that their extinction is threat- ened. The remedy suggested is that care be used to cut rather than pull the flowers, so that the roots need not* be disturbed; and that those who gather rare plants for the market ahould be discouraged by lack of patronage. Bishop Philpotts of Exeter early earned his reputation for saying sharp things. One of the guests at au under- graduate'~ party, in Oxford, sang a song much out of trine. Then Philpotts was called upon. "I haven't a note in my voice," said he "Well, if you can't sing, you must make a speech or tell a story!" declared the host." "If I arrl ~to tell a story," said the future bish- op, "I think I should say that I should .Xike to hear -- sing that song again!" Much later in life he went to pay a visit in Devonshire. "It's a beautiful place, isn't it?" asked a guest. "Yes," said the bishop, "but if it were mine I would pull down the house and fill up the pond w~th it. That would remove two objections." V The value of a recipe lies partly'in ,Its being accurately set down and fol- lowed. Itarper's Magazine has the fol- lowing directions for making a break- fast delicacy called pop-overs, as they were imparted by the Chinese servant to a lady visiting in the family: "You takee him one egg," said the master of the kitchen, "one lit' cup milk. You flxee him one cup flou' on sieve, take pinch salt--you put him in lump. You move him egg lit' bit slow; you put him milk in, all time move. You makee him fiou' go in, not move fast, so have no spots. Makee but'led pan all same wa'm, not too hot. Putlee him in oven. Now you mind you business. No like woman run look at him all time. Him done all same time biscuit." During month if July thousands of young people gathered in Cincinnati and San Franeiseo, in Christian En- deavor and Epworth League conven- tions. Enthusiasm in large measure was theirs. But the public, always utilitarian, asks: "What have these :young people actually done?" A few among the "best things" reported by the Junior Endeavors alone, chil- dren under 14 years of age, are a suf- ficient reply: Clothed and paid board of a crippled' boy in school. Gave a thanksgiving dinner to thirty-five poor children. Earned money to give poor children an outing in July and Au- gust. Kept a crippled old lady in clothing and food all winter. Fur- nished flowers all winter to our church. Made scrap books for hospi- tals. Educated two colored boys Placed a rack in depot and kept it filled with good reading. Gathered two hundred good books for the prison committee to use in its worK. Bought an invalid bed, which is loaned in the community. Surely an enthusiasm riv- ~eted by such acts of helpful service need not hesitate to call itself true religion. Gladstone's humorous advice to the farmers to convert their superfluous turnips into beautiful jam has been abundantly acted upon, even in the vir- tuous United States. Around one case of the Agricultural Department's ex- hibit at the Pan-Amerlcan Exposition hang squares of cloth, originally white, now yellow, orange, scarlet, crimson, blue and purple all coJ6red by aniline dyes extracted from commercial Jam and Jellies. ]n comparison with such nefarious al~teration con'.meat would be colofleu. A SOLAR PERPLEXUS BLOW. That gifted guardian o the Maehln- ery of Justice, "01d Perplexity," took thue enough from his self-imposed task of trying to make puppets of some of our local judges and the district at- torney-all, by the way, ).1" his own po- litical bran(l--to dash off the Yellowing interesting editorial in yesterday's :New s : "That 1)curer should haw~ been chos- '(;ll as the. place for the annlla] meeting of the American Bar Associa.tion this yeqr is an hom)r that the city appre- (.iates, and to its mcmbers a cordial greeting is extended. Among tbe m-my organizations which exist in this coun- try that are national in their scope there is none th:lt excites a niore ~,'holes, olne influence or promotes a more lofty ide'd of justice that tile ~nlerican Bar Asso(-iation. Its concern is with wise statutes and legislation. the purity of the courts, the upright- ness of judges, the imlmrtial adminis- tration of justice. These matters come home to the welfare of the humblest citizen of the reIml)lic, anti I)ear an in- timate relation to government, both state and national. To elevate the high sense of worth and dnty anti integrity that sholfld characterize a profession on whick sucii resl)onsibilities rest is the purpose and qim of this associa- tion. its membership is representative of the legal talent of the nation. The names of the leading jm'ists, lawyers and jndges of the United States adorn lt~ roll of members and give it a stand- ing, a dignity and an influence that is everywhere felt and acknowledged. The state!y d(~cornm that nmrks its proceedings~ as well as the broad na- tional bearing of the topics it consid- ers, are indicative of the high charac- ter of tile association and the controll- ing position it occupies as related to the legislative and Judicial thought of the tim(*. To so distingnished an asso- ciqtion, and till of its nmmbcrs, the News again extends a cordial greeting and a hearty "we]conic." Ineidentally "Ohl Perldexity" was numbered among tim list of qttorneys who sought admission yesterday inio lhis famous organization of lawyers whose "Membership is repremmtalive of the legal talent of the nation. The namt,s of the leading jurists, lawyers and judges of the United States adorn its roll of metal)ors aml give it a standing, a dignity and qn influence that is ev- erywhere felt qnd aeknowh~dged" But alas "lnd alackaday! "Old I'er- plexily's" apl)lic'ltion was "with- drawn"' at tile last nmment and lie It may be asm]med, for Ihe only me~. ace it 1)e2ars is agnlns~ the Democratic party, whieh he stil~ aspires to lead. But the velT cil%.umstance that these gronps are drawing .awa3r from the old party strengthetts the elements that are trying rornmlly to unhorse him, and the iu'inciples announ(,ed in June by the committee which ix trying to unite tlmm--lmblic ownershilL an income tax and fiat money--are pr~vtieally his own. llc was re~(13" in l~)00 to refuse a Democratic nnd accc.pt a Popnlistie nomination ~f his silver l)l:mk was re- jected. No one nlay I~e vertain that lie will not be found training with these radical groups in 1904. Bat meanwhile they must show strength enough to in- di(mte that they lmve something to trade and this is not a propitious time nor is l('msas City an auspicious plae~ for sL new party of discontent. MAX. Iowa RepubUeal3s. An ]ow:t Republican convention iS interesting to tim brefliren in other states, because the party has a way of backing up its nominations at the polls with a vigor that makes the Demo- eratle ticket nearly a negligible quan- tity, and becau.se the Itawkeye state, like the Buckeye state, has an embar. rassing richness of great men. The convention that named National Com- mitteeman A. B. Cmumins of Des Moines for governor yesterday, may, for all practical purposes, be regarded as the election itself, for the present incumbent, Governor Shaw, had 56,000 votes to spare in 1899, and McKinley led Bryan in the state by 65,000 in 1896 and 98,000 in ltR)0. Perhaps the llepublicans of Iowa somewhat overdo tile matter In the size of their majorities. As Senator Thurston of Nebraska said yesterday, "It is the three great and sometimes doubtful states of Indiana, Ohio and New York ttmt are likely to exert the strongest influence in the next nation- al convention." There is nothing doubtful about Iowa; but the promi- nence of her Ilel)ubliean chieftains gives them a per~sonal claim to the con- sideration of tlie lmrty elsewhere. Sen- ators Allison antl I}olliver have both been "mentioned" for the presidency, althotlgh Allison avows he is too old, and although some say that Dolliver is a bit too young. Speaker tteuder- son iS an Iowan, and so, to be sure, is Minister Conger, who was talked of for governor in the spriug, but who somehow did not develop in the can- vass. Most eonsl)icuous of all Iowa Re- publican availabilities is Governor Les- lie M. Shaw himself, who was not still reinains "outside the In'east-quite nomiuated for the presidency works." t No diagram is needed to cxpl'Hn this withdrawal, but it must be a barrow-] ing reflection for the General Manager of Everybody's Business to think that i lm eannot mingle and eommnne on terms of intimacy with these great le-! gal lights of the American Bar Asso- ciation while scores of iris humbler fel- low members of the Colorado bat" are permitt=~d to enjoy all tKe rights, pow- ers, privileges, obligations and iinmuni- ties of liberty, fraternity and equality in the exalted body whicll he prqised so copiously in his alleged newslmPer before the election of new members. But let us not give way to despair or vainly tmaghm that the cause of jnstice will wither because of thei omission of the name of its Chief Champion from the membership roll of: tile American Bar Association; "the :;lately decorum that marks its pro- ceedmgs" will still safeguard our lib- erties and "the broad national bearing of the topics it considers" will still re- mqin "indieatiw~ of the high character of the association aml the controlling position it occupies as related to the legislative and judicial thought of the tlnle." Am1, anyhow, thanks to the wisdom of Colorado's unlucky Thirtetmth Gen- eral Asselnbly, "Old Perl)lexity" will still remain a senator of tile United States even though lie may not be'a member of the American Bar A.~oeia- tion.--Denver Republican. A Commoner Party There will be a great gathering up of the political odds and ends which iiave been bestim'ing themselves in one state or another when the convention that is to form a "Commoner" or "Columbian" party meets at Kansas City in Sep- tember. If number of organizations and variety of creeds which are to co- alesce in a single national party and a single declaration of faith count for anything it will be quite a showing. The two brands of Populist, the Pub- lic Ownership party of St. Louis, the newly formed Bryan Democracy of Ohio~elght strong--the Silver Repub- licans of the mountain states, the Sin- gle Taxers and tile Socialist party just launched at Indianapolis, are all ex- pected to pool the.Jr issues. "Golden Rule" Jones, Lentz, Debs, ])e Leon and every other wearer of political motley are expected to be present. It is called a Bryan party, "although Bryan disclaimed paternity of the third party scheme when it was broached in June In Missouri, or fra- ternity with the little band of Ohlo Greenbackers who put hls name on their banners last week. That he will continue to avoid fellowshipping with yesterday, but who was lint to the fore as "a national leader of renown." Of tile llepubliean state t)latform, that may be said which m.ly be said of all Bepublican st-Ue platform.s this year. It puts a good deal of emphasis on national questions which indeed are is agreeable subjects for Republican conventions to approach as they are disagreeable for Democratic conven- tions. The most significant plank is that calling for reciprocity and plac- ing the party in the state squarely be- hind the President. Mr. Thurston says he has no~ "discovered any such stren- uous demand in the \Vest for wider reeipro('ity as is reported to exist." We refer him to the eastern bank of the Missouri.--Mail and Express. ~rave Words Indeed, On tim question of the suffrage, if for no other reason, the Maryland 1)emocrats deserve to be defeated this :~car, as they were a year ago. Th.eir position is wholly mischievous and to- tally indefensible. This is what they solemnly declare: "The Democratic party represents more than 40#00 majority of the white people of Maryland. They, in common with their brethren of other states, in which large masses of colored .voters lmve been injected into the body po- litic, recognize that peace, good order, l)ersonal safety and proper develop- ment of our material interests depend upon the control of the commonwealth by its intelligent white residents. Without .he aid of the 60,000 colored voters, the Republican party in Mary- land would be a hopeless minority. "We therefore, without hesitation, proclaim that the success of the Dome. era'de party will meun that, while we shall deal with perfect fairness in se- curing all the benefits of good govern- meat and full and free opportunities for education to all classes, such ac- tion must be taken as to prevent the eonerol of the state govermnent from passing into the hands of those who have neither the alJility, nor the inter- est, to manage public affairs wisely and welh" Brave words for a white man's party in a state where tile while voters out- number the colored voters more than three to one! ]n only one county of Maryland do the colored voters preponderate, and ~here only a slender majority. In all the counties of the state the admin- istration is wholly In the hands of white men, as lu the entire electoral machinery and the I)ower of political organization. It is a fraudulent issue. There is no conceivable menace to white suprem- acy in Republican success in Mary, land.--l~ew York Sun. J I I II I COLORADO M. E.
