Shaksjieare, Fulton, Watt, Stephens and Morse have done more to advance the interests of mankind and bring tlieni np to a high standard of civilization than all the Deweys who ever sunk a ship or mangled human beings. It is high time for humane men to get off their knees and stop glorifying human butchers. A man who waa in the Mexican war told me that he saw a Mexican soldiers lie down to a spring to drink. He drop- ed upon one knee, poised his gun, and as the Mexican rose from tlie spring be fired The Mexican fell back-dead Killed by a brother man. How much better than murder was that\' What­ ever I may do or lease undone, may ui\ soul never be blackened by such a crime as that. Otis says he never saw a man who en­ joys a tight as Funston does—he seeks to be in every skirmish. This language rightly interperted means that Funston delights in the shedding yf human blootj. Some years ago l'robst killed a whole family near l'hiladiljihia. When asked w hat enmity he could have pos­ sibly had against a young child in a cradle he answered- \Why not any, but when I g^t my hand in I rather enjoyed it.\ Where is the difference between the two human monsters'' Fntistuii is called brave because he delights in kill ing his kind Why not l'robst'' (>, there is a good I rfne coming when nun will be ranked alike who are guilt\ of the same crimes.

People now regard war as something different from murder, but it. is only murder on a large scale. If a dude who wears a crown or a lot of dolls who sit in Congress give another lot of duties and dolts the privilege of killing each othei, does that make it any less murder '' ll the dudes and dolls fall out instead ol killing each other let them choose some disinterested party to settle the dispute The verdict, coftld not involve so great an injustice but. that a war would involve a greater injustice. It is said that wars are inevitable, thai they must come, that if all the world were inhabited by (Quakers still there would be waj^T For one, I should hki lo see the quaker expcrniinont tried 1 caniiol eouceivo how there could be wai when nobody wants In light.

Nothing could cmiler great i i honors than lo recount the number ol x esse Is w Inch he hail plundered and sunk Some day we shall look upon war as we now look upon pi nicy and we shall regard the principle actors in the liloodx drama as we now'regard the ancient sea rovers. If left to themselves I be people would never light I am told that soldiers frequently meet on picket line, lay down their arms and engage in friendly chat, drink from the same can­ teen, exchange little articles for mutual convenience, smoke and play cards to­ gether like two brothers. Next day the order is given and these two friends are transformed into human tigers, each liv­ ing to kill thi'oilier It is the crowned dudes and ruling snobs, through jealousy or hatred or the desire of conquest, w ho spring these war traps oxer then sub­ jects. And then the people arc made to believe that, their rights are invaded and thai they must kill each othei to secure their rights and maintain the honor of their country. Human rights are gen­ erally sacrificed in war but rarely es­ tablished. 1 have little faith in the im­ mediate results of the peace conference at the Hague, yet it is a step in the right direction. It will have a tendency to call attention of all civilized nations to the abominations of , wars. Other con­ ferences will follow and the people will ultimately be led to see that even the victorious parly loses more than it gains and that what it gains could have been better secured in another way No war can lie so conducted as not to leave the sting of death and the trad of destruct­ ion behind it .

Kin's coming, and we shall see little Kenneth!\ Hay Jumped down from the wagon,' and as she spoke she \ias busy bridling her pony, that chanced to be tethered near the house \Don't hurry so, Ray,\ expostulated the mother. \They must he at least •Bears the Signature of \HIK I I l-TI.K nUTfflMAN. two miles\— Tlie sentence ended in an amused elnicl le. for Ray had mounted her pony, without taking the time to saddle him. and was cantering over the prairie toward Ihe distant objects. She had ridden to meet her only sister, whom she had not seen since her wed­ ding day, more than three years pre- \ ions to the opening of my story, aud xx ho had been going with her bus-' b.-iiul a traveling show man. from place to place since that day. living in one small house and helpim; take pictures iu the < »t I nr This is ihe xx a v Kay described her menial omniums, 'I'm dying to see Kva. and of course I want to see John, but 1'xe just lint to see lit lie Kenneth!\ Tlie two little houses on wheels came to a halt, as l!.-iv niared them, and from the door of one of them an odd little figure was dropped lo the ground \Me tmilium to meet 'on, auntie!\ and Kay looked into the merry eyes of the nephew she had never before seen, yet who held so huge a part of her heart. She laughed aloud - he looked so merry and so cntniial as he stood there In Ihe traveling nil ire that had been planned more fur comfort than for beautx Slipping from her pony, she caught him iu her arms. \Oh!\ she exclaimed, hugging him rapturously, \yon dear little-Dutch man!\ It seemed to be the only word that would lit the case, ulthough there vvas no Dutch blood in his veins. \IOs he replied complacently, \me Dutchman Papa say so!\ That vvas Kay's introduction to the little fellow iv ho vvas destined to keep her busier during the next tew days than she had ever been before in her life, for she was ltnniedia.tely pro­ claimed his sole guardian, nurse and keeper, and promptly replied that noth­ ing would suit her better. \You don't know Kenneth,\ John said. Iu a tone that implied awful things. \1 feel as if I had known him al­ ways,\ replied this loyal auutie, giving Kenneth another good squeeze. Eva helped her mother get dinner, that there need be no break in their conversation, and Ray undertook to give-Kenneth a bath aud dress him for dinner. \What do you want him to wear?\ she asked Ex a \Oh I don't care. Anything that will cover him.\ was the careless reply. \That means that you are to be very beautiful.\ she said to Kenneth, and half an hour later she felt that every­ thing necessary to that result had been done. \Now Kenneth,\ she said, \you stay right here, like a good boy, while I car­ ry out this water. I'll be back in just a minute.\ Kay was sure she had not been away much longer than a minute, but when she returned a slrong smell of perfume filled the air. and a small hoy knelt ou her dresser. \Oh. baby!\ she exclaimed. \How did yon get up there?\ But the chair drawn close to the dresser told the story, and Kenneth only said: \Auntie nie very hoof id!\ To make room for his small person on the dresser. Kenneth had pushed aside whatever seemed to tie in his way, and a bottle of expensive perfume —a Christinas gift to Ray- was gone beyond recall; A tortoise shell comb was broken, a work basket overturned, and confusion reigned generally. \You have taught me a good lesson, baby.\ Ray said a little later when she and Kenneth woro nlone. \I 'll watoli you very carefully after this, for, oh, I do feel sorry about that perfume!\ That evening Kenneth went to the pasture with his grandpa when milking time had arrived, and for the first time in his life he enjoyed tbe privijege of drinking warm milk from the pall. \It so vewy dood!\ he «ald, drawing a long breath of satisfaction. \Me like it hoof nl!\ This experience seemed to make an Impression on Kenneth that was not to be forgotten and that was destined to cause a big cloud of anxiety to hang over tho farmhouse. . It was the second day of the arrival of John. Eva and their baby, and Rav had lieen kept so busy \by tlie-little fel­ low 's curiosity and careless activity that she was as nearly worn out as s .he had ever heed in Her life. No £-a t)rei£u'. air was stirring, aud it.seemed as. if, tile suu were sending most pitiless rays to that strip of Kansas prairie. Kva and her mother were visiting to­ gether Iu the eool uorth room/but mas­ ter Kenneth refused to stay there. He sought a place of greater excitement, in the back yard, where there were drowsy chickeus to chase, and Kay must sit on the sunny back porch, where she could ket p him in view. The sun made her eyes ache, and reading became anything but a pleasure. She could not follow the baby about, and the moments dragged slowly. She closed her eyes for a second to rest them—only for a second! She was startled by her sister's voice close be­ hind her. . \Ray where Is Kenneth?\ \He is here.\ she answered cheerful­ ly, then looked about in bewilderment. Here, of course, but where? lie was not teu feet away when she closed her eyes a moment ago; he was not in sight now. \Kenneth! Kenneth, deaf!\ she called. \Come here, bab.V!\ But there vvas no response. Where had he gone? How long |iad she slept? *'He Is not in the dairy.\ said his grandma., who had heeu there looking for him. \and neither Is the milk pail. I believe he decided to find the cow and have'another drink of milk from the pail.\ The women looked at each other, the half smile which came at this sugges­ tion speedily freezing iulo an expres­ sion of honor, for how could the baby know which way to turn to go to the pasture? And straight before him lay the half dry slough, with its acres of tall grass through which a horse could walk unseen, and where a child had once been lost for so long that it was nearly d<»ad of starvation when found- The great dinner horn sounded a warning to the men in the fields, and they came hurrying home. It had long beeu understood*-that one toot meant dinner, two meant inau to see you on business and three trouble; come quick­ ly! Three toots had been sounded The men made their best speed, but Kay. on the back of her r>ony, was al­ ready riding round and round and back au*d forth through the tall marsh grass that covered the slough, calling the baby's name at nearly every step. The house was searched from top to' bottom and every building on the place subjected to the most eare-fill scrutiny, but not a glimpse of little Kenneth greeted the eyes of the live frightened people who sought him. Where was Kenneth? Only out In the j)opcorn field, close beside the house, busily engaged in tilling the milk pail with dirt, scooped up with thu putter ladle! By the time grandpa and grandma finished their search of tho premises and*stnHi'd to join Ray the pail vvas full of dirt, and Kenneth wanted to carry It to tlie house, but he couldn't lift it Neither could he over­ turn it, so as to have the fun of filling it agnin So lie decided to leave it where it v\a3 and get Auntie Kay to help carry it. He went to the house, but no one was there. He called for mamma aud grandma and auntie, but there was no response. Then, being a very good uatuVed little boy, who did not believe in making a fuss over tri­ fles, he sought the folded comforter \IT SO VKXVV DOOD.\ that had been spread upon the floor for his especial benefit and vvas soon en­ joying the restful sleep that comes to all who work hard. I The frightened family chanced to meet in the slough more than an hour later. \We must get the neighbors to help us,\ said grandpa briefly. \It will soon be dark!\ sobbed the poor mother. \Go to the house and make coffee,\ said grandpa to grandma. \Kva you'd better help her. Ray, go up and feed your pony. You may have to make a night of it down here. John and I will saddle horses and notify the neigh bors.\ And that Is how the family all hap­ pened to return together, and then, be­ cause the women dreaded to go Into the empty, darkening house nloue, the men accompanied them to tlie door. It was standing opeu, and the last ray of the sun shining through the west win­ dow went straight •into the face of the little sleeper and aroused him. \Why. Kenneth Holt!\ exclaimed Eva. Then she swayed and would have fallen If her husband had not caught her. Ray was first to catch the baby into her arms, hut he held out his hands to grandpa. \Turn dampa,\ he said, \let's dit the tow. Me touldn't fiud her. so the pail's full of dirt!\ —Housekeeper. SalUerliiR Glnnn. Margot, in some interesting investi­ gations in soldering glass, has establish­ ed tbe fact that an alloy composed of 05 parts of tin and A parts of zinc will melt at abont 892 degrees Fahrenheit. Be­ coming firmly adherent to the glass, it is unalterable and exhibits nn attractive luster. An alloy containing 90 parts of tin and HI parts of aluminium will melt at BOO degrees Fahrenheit, and also forms a strong and brilliant solder for glass. With these two alloys always ready to band, glass may be eoldered aa easily as two pieces of metal. When the glass is heated in a furnace, the sol­ dering can be accomplished by rubbing the surface with a rod of either of the compositions named. The alloy as it flows can be ovenly distributed with a soldering iron.—St. Louis Poat-Dis patch. • A Little Sermon. To be honest; to he kind; to earn a litfte and spend a little less; to make, npon the whole, a family happier for hia presence; to renounce, when that shall be necessary, and not be irabitter- ed; to keep a few friends, bnt these without capitulation; above all, on the Eaina grim condition, to keep friends with himself—here ia a task for all that I man has of fortitude and delicacy.— Robert Lama Stevenson. CVCP see A SNOW STORM M Summer? We never did; but we have seen the clothing at this time of the year so covered with dandruff that it looked as if it had been out in a regular snow­ storm. No need of this snowstorm. As the summer sun would melt the falling snow so will VIGOR melt these flakes of dandruff in the scalp. It goes further thftn this: it prevents their formation. It ha.s, still other properties: it will restore color to gray hair in just ten times out of every ten cases. And it does even more: it feeds and nourishes the roots of the hair. Thin hair becomes thick hair; and short hair be­ comes long hair. We have a book on the Hair and Scalp.
