LOOKING A LONG XVAY AHEAD.
Senator Thurston of Nebraska was
looking a long way ahead when he wrote
in the New York Journal last Friday,
that, In hi* opinion, Senator Foraker of
Ohio would be the nominee of the Repub
lican party for President four years
hence. In Mr. Thurston’s opinion Mr.
Foraker cut a big figure in the Philadel
phia Convention. It may be that th*i
speech that Mr. Foraker made in nomi
nating Mr. McKinley was a good one.
but it was not received with a great deal
of applause and did not make much of an
Col. Roosevelt certainly does not agree
with Mr. Thurston in his opinion that
Mr. Foraker will be the next presiden
tial nominee of the Republican party. Ife
undoubtedly intends to use the vice pres
idency to keep himself before the coun
try. If he falls to do it he will show'
himself less resourceful than h* has here
tofore. In all the positions he has occu
pied since he has been in public life he
has always managed to let the public
know whit he was doing and w r hat he
proposed to do.
According to Mr. Thurston, Gov. Roose
velt, if elected, will not have an oppor
tunity to get before the country. He
puts the ease as follows;
"While Roosevelt sits in the Vice Pres
ident’s chair, chained hand and foot by
the precedents of the place, unable to
speak or act, Foraker will be discussing
the great problems of our expansion, de
velopment and foreign policy, and I name
Foraker as first on the list of presidential
aspirants In 1901. He has taken the place
that Roosevelt held up to the meeting of
Mr. Thurston evidently does not under
stand Gov. Roosevelt very well. No num
ber of precedents is sufficient to make
him keep his mouth closed. He will find
a way to talk <o the country, and he
will talk about the administration if he
thinks it Is not doing just what it ought
to do. It will he Impossible to keep him
quiet. That is one reason probably why
Senator Hanna opposed his nomination,
assuming that he did oppose it in good
faith. Gov. Roosevelt may not be the
nominee of his party for President in
1904, but if he is not It will not be be
cause he has failed to keep himself be
fore the public by talking or otherwise.
A XEW THEORY IN FARMING.
Is the ilme coming when the dynamo
and the fiddle will be included with the
hoc and the plow among the necessary
implements of agriculture? Nobody can
tell just yet. but the scientists seem to be
leading in that direction. It has been
practically demonstrated that the elec
tric light stimulates the growth of vege
tation. Near Chicago a truck farmer has
found it profitable to hurry the growth
of lettuce with electric arc lights. In
Russia a scientific experimenter has
learned that he can mature barley In
twelve days* less than the normal period
by the employment of overhead electrical
currents. The same scientist, Speyshnef,
has made root crops, such as potatoes,
carrots and onior.s, yield double the aver
age quantity by running an electrical
current through the soil in which the
crops were planted. Another Russian,
Kavroff. has noted various remarkable
phenomena in the soil, due to electrical
currents. Sir William Crookes, inven’or of
the X-ray tubes which hear his name,
has a theory of the production of nitro
gen by means of electrical currents which
has attracted the attention of investiga
tors. who are busily engaged in experi
menting along the line of his suggestion.
It has been noted, also, that pot plants
placed where they come under the sound
of music at frequent intervals thrive re
markably well. Some of the most heal
thy and well developed of such plants are
to be found in music rooms, or in conser
vatories Just off tiie music rooms.
Music, they say, is vibration. Electricity
also is vibration—atomic vibration—ac
cording to the theorists. The experiment
ers believe that it Is the vibration, set
up by both the music and the electrical
current, which benefits the plant life
and makes it take on new vigor and
achieve increased growth and earlier ma
furity. Just how- this is accomplished is
not yet known. The effects show for
themselves. The scientists are now dig
ging for the causes.
If it ’# true that root crops may be
doubled by running a current through
soil, and that top crops may be in
created by mean* of musical vibrations.
i it not reasonable to suppose that pro
gressive agriculturists will be quick to
take advantage of the opportunity to In
,i,-ase the ptodu tlvcncss and. therfoe
the value, of their acres? *Mny we not
expect the time to come when the farm
will be thrilled with the aherna ing cur
rent of ihe dynamo as it icoits through t’-e
potato patch, while the circumambient
atmosphere wiil tremble with the music
of the violin solo which the farmer plays
to his cabbages?

A STUD \ OF lilt NINA.
Mr Alexander Sutherland t*!ls in the
Nineteenth Century of an Intel eating in
vestigation that he has made into the
matter of the brains of the two sexes. A
pair of scales was the instrument he used
In his effort* to unravel secrets cf men
tality. He has discovered, he says, that
the brain of n man is proportionately
larger than that of a woman. Neverthe
less he adheres to his former opinion that
the sexes are equal In mental capacity.
Heretofore he has asserted that the b:ain
of man was no larger in proportion to
his body than woman’s in proportion to
hers. This, however, Mr. Sutherland says,
is erroneous, ns his investigations have
shown him. He made comparisons as far
as possible between men and women of
the same hight and weight. In the cas*s
of 102 men and 113 women, where the
highly and weights were very nearly the
same, the brains of the men averaged 46 9
ounces, and those of the women 41.9
ounces, a difference of 12 per cent. In
favor of the men. Twenty-one men
were compared with 135 wom r n (f rqua!
hight. arid the difference was 6 per cent,
in favor of the men. Between individuals
of ihe same stature and weight ihe dif
ference was about 9 per cent.
This, however, touches only the question
or bulk, or rather weight, of that "gray
matter" called brain. It has no refe encp
to quality, ano Mr. Sutherland says hnt
science is not yet in a position to answsr
questions respecting that branch <f the
inquiry. That there i a difference o,
quality, possibly of texture, in brains does
not seem to admit of a doubt k The biains
of many great men have been found con
siderably heavier than the average. On
the other hand, there have been instances
in which the brains of eminent and learn
ed men weighed less than the brains of
certain criminals. In view of such facts,
it cannot be held that mere size or wrignt
is conclusive of superior mentality, fh re
must be something beyond these things—a
finer texture, a superior quality—which
determines the mental power.
Summing up his investigations Mr.
Sutherland says: “If it be true that the
female brain is less by 10 per cent, in itv
proportion than the male brain, and if .t
could in consequence be demonstrated that
the average woman has 10 per cfnt. Is
of intellectual capacity than the average
man. it still has to be remembeted that
even then 90 per cent, of the women are
the equals of 90 per cent, of ihe men. On
a little consideration this will seem to im
ply that 'he average man has to recognize
about 40 per cent, of the women as bei g
his superiors in intellect.’’
SENII-MILLKNM \L OF PRINTING.
The five hundredth anniversary of t’ne
birthday of Gutenberg, the inventor of
printing from movable types, was cel
ebrated in Mainz, Germany, June 23. It
is a long jump from Gutenberg and Faust
to Mergenthaler and Hoe. but it has tak 'n
a long time to make it. The history of
printing during those five hundred years,
even If only the most salient features of
the progression were noted, would fi 1 a
large volume. Nevertheless Mr. Rut e t
Hoe, the press builder, tells the New York
Journal that, in his opinion, there has
been only one really greit invention in
the art of printing from the time of Gut
enberg to the present. This does not
refer, of eourse. to the mechanical part o'
the art, but has reference to es-e ti 1
principles. The great Invention which
Mr. Hoe had in mind was that of making
stereotype plates. Without the-e p ate,
printing must have remained a ccmp r.-
tively slow and costly process. The cheap
newspapers and books, as we know them
to-day, could not have been proluc and
There would have been no gieat n< w.<pa

hundreds of thousands daily, because the
cost of the necessary printing esta’q ish
ment would have made it out of the ques

Stereotyping was Invented l>y Willi im
Ged of Edinburgh, Scotland. A> a
back as 1725 he began his experiments, but
it was not until 1736 that he was able o
print a book from stereotype I pl. t- s. The
printers of those days w re opjjos and to
Ged’s invention. They saw in it a la.o -
saving device which woulJ, they t ou in.
reduce the volume of their rmprytneit.
They, therefore, threw eveiy obstacle pos
sible in Ged’s wax . But, by working r t
night after the other employes lal Uft
the shop, he finally produced see ess ul
plates. Mr. Gfcd’s invention Is ore hun
dred and seventy-five years old, rexe.t e
less the principle applied to- ay is the
same as that discovered by bi n. TANARUS: ere

too. are only elaborations upon the ti st
presses. But what marvelous e.ab ri
lions they are! Gutenberg was aMe to
get one impression on one side of a email
sheet in probably two minutes. The pten
ent monster presses devour endless rills
of white paper and turn out com.pl •
newspapers tit the rate of many thous
ands per hour. Mergenthaler’s Inve iI n,
one of the most wonderful machines in th
world, adheres to Gutenberg’s principle of
employing moveable pieces of trc’.al hav
ing letters and characters upon them w.tli
whitb to form words and combi tatio a
Thus it will ho seen that while there has
been marvelous progress in the “art pre
servative.” the evolution has been slow
and the discoveries of new principles have
been few. Gutenberg’s invention revolu
tionized the literature and art of the
world; Ged’s greatly multiplied the capa;-
Ity of printing establishments, and ether

craft, and might b? blown out of the
water with one projectile from a slx
pounder cannon. For the past ten or fif
teen years the old vessel has spent most
of her time in the repair yard, and a year
or so ago it was announced that she
would be condemn* and and put out of com
mission fer all time. To put the Monoc,acy
within range of modern ordnance would
be the acme of fo lhardfness.
June 15 marked the change of the old
government of Hawaii to the new—the
transition from so-called self-government
to the domination of Washing on. Under
the old system there wore only four sched

and articles dutiable at the rates of 10.

change there will be levied a mo-t ' harm

He Tried Wanamaker's Way.
John Wanamaker’s recent act in order
ing out of hi* office two local politicians
who tried to bulldoze him led the former
Governor of one of the Western states to
tell a story, say* the Philadelphia Satur
day Evening Post.
"I almost believe,” he said, “that Mr.
Wanamaker could have gotten them out
as well by giving each of them one of
his official handshakes. When he was
Postmaster General I was in Congress
and went to see him a great many times;
in fact, he had more calls than any
other member of the cabinet of the Har
rison administration. The way he re
ceived everybody was most satisfactory,
but the thing that delighted me was the
beautiful manner in which he got rid of
a visitor. His farewell handshake was
courtesy and geniality itself, but at the
some time It was a gentle push toward
the door. It was done in such a manner
that nobody could possibly take excep
tion to it. Awhile after I became Gov
ernor of my state. I had seen the thing
worked so well in the Postmaster Gener
al’s office that I thought 1 would try it.
Of course, you know, when the Legisla
ture meets the Governor of n state has
quite a few people to handle. I prac
ticed a little on my wife and thought I
had got the hang of the performance, al
though she expressed her doubts. The
day w'hen I fried the experiment I be
gun on an old political supporter, grasp
ing his hand firmly, and with my best
smile I gave him the gentle push. But
the results were not altogether what T
had hoped. H* gazed at me steadily for
a moment, and then said: T’s nil right.
Governor, if you want me to go, but 1
don't want to be thrown out.'
“ ‘Come back Jiere.’ 1 exclaimed, and
grabbed his hand In the old way and gave
him a pull toward pie. Then, in order to
remove any other doubts be may have
had. I made him promise to take dinner
that day as the executive mansion. It

Why He Didn’t Need a Tip.
Here is a rather good parliamentary
st ry of the new solicitor general, Mr.
Cars n. Q. C., which is going the rounds
just now, and which has never before
been given to the world; in fact. I heard
it only the other evening from dimming
Macdona. M. I'., from whom the jest
emanated, says a writer in the San Fran
cisco Argonaut. During one of the divi
ins th 5 o lier day. Mr. Macdona. Sir John
Blurd'll Maple, and Mr. Carson found
themselves together in he ..division lobby.
It was. I b lieve, the eve of one cf be
great ia<e meetings. In any case. Mr.
Carson said, jokingly, to Sir John Blun
“Can you give me a tip for to-morrow.
I don’t knew what reply was made by
the sporting baronet, but Mr. Macdona
turned t) M . Carson and said to Mm:
“My d f ar fellow', why on earth should
you. of all peop’e, require a tip? You've
had one tip given you which made \our
fortune, rj why do you want anoilnr?"
Mr. Cars n looked a litt’e mystlfltd. ad
asked Mr. Macdona what this t p might
he. “The tip of ycur tongue!'* was the
wit y rej?inder.

A Philadelphia census enumerator who
had an Italian district assigned to him
tel’s an amusing story of the growth of
the Quaker City population. At one hous-*
the woman refused to give him any inN
f rmati n, tel in. 4 him to re urn -he next

the enumerator went To the next housr
After he had got his answers tlvre he
akfd how many were in the family at
the house he had just l?ft, and was told
thtre were ten children and th* father
and mother. Being anxious to have his
district properly covered, ihe enumerator
went lack to grt the answers that had
been re'used cn his tUst visit, and was
met by the man of the house, whos ■ l e d
iness to give him what was wanted sur
prised him. In answer to his (Mi*stion.
“How many children?*’ ih Italian said
“Twelve," with a grin. "But I was t ld
y s erday that there were rn’y t*n.” ven

then.’’ the Italian replied, "but last night
jwirs were torn.”
Ten Table Folk I,ore.
Here are a few very old superstitions,
soys the Philadelphia Times, about the
cup that cheers:
When the tea Is made and the I’d of ihe
table is forgotten for a few miiiub s, It is
a sure sign that someone will drop in
If single persons And that they have two
spoons by the side of the cup. he or she
will figure prominently, perhaps very
nrominently, at a wedding before Hie year
,lf you put creom in your tea before su
gar it will cross your love.
If n tea stalk floats In the cup of an un
married lady it is called a “beau.'’ When
this happens she should stir the tea
lour.d briskly, and then plant the si 00.1
uptight in the middle of the cup, holding
It quite still with the fingers. If tile
"beau," in its twirling, is attracted to the
spoon and clings to it he will -be sure to
put in an appearance some time during
the evening. If the sides of the cup at
tract him He will not come that night.

Ingrrsoll on Ice Cream Soda.
“I will tell you a story about the late
Col. Ingersoll, which I never saw in
print,” said a lawyer who knew the great
agnostic well, according to the New York
When he was an attorney in Peoria
111., a young wife called to see him about
filing a suit for divorce. Ingersoll ques
tioned her closely, and after she had de
railed a number of grievances lie told her
that none was sufficient. She was much
perturbed in consequence, and finally ap
pealed to him to know on whot ground*
she could procure her bill. The colonel
took a law book from the collection and
pretended to examine it. After this he
turned to her and said: "Madam. I find
nothing in this book to fit the situation
If you can establish the fact that lie is
addicted to the unmascullnc habit of not
