Theatrical people aay that the public
likes to be amused rather than Instructed,
arxl that this accounts for the decline of
the ’•legitimate'' drama and the rise and
popularity of the vaudeville show, the
“continuous performance," where all i*
tinsel and ridiculousness and laughter.
Apparently the Republican party means to
try vaudeville in the campaign this year,
and *ee |f R | ( as essy to gather votes

theatrical managers find it to gather dol

The first Intimation of this purpose on
the part of the Republican party was
noted at the Philadelphia convention when
the bosses, by a neat sleighNof-hand trick
brought about the nomination for Vice
President of a premier equestrian per
former and expert with bowte knives, pis
tols and guns; a man whom Buffalo Bill
would no doubt like to have with his Wild
West aggregation. This gentleman h,as

way, lately added to hi* repertory the feat
of ojenlr-g hi* mouth and putting his foot

agers of the aggregation, but the Demo
crats enjoy It.
A second feature of the Republican show
may be called the Mystic Maze of Mili
tary in, over which Is the Italnhow of Im
perialism. These are lectured on by
many “barkers," who asaert that there is
a way out of the maze, and that at the end
of the rainbow there is a j>ot of gold. But
they themselves do not know how to get
through the maze, or how to secure the
Another feature that has Just been de
termined upon, for us© In the West, Is Ihe
“lady humorist and entertainer." Hhe

within a few days. It will be her business
to appear at campaign- meetings- and tell
humorous stories ami slug funny songs
that have political bearing. Many of her
stories will be in " ’coon" dialect, and a
number of the songs will be “rag time."
She will be expected, for the benefit of
the ladle*, to bring In a few "human In

Just how she will be able to make a pret

The Army and Navy Register, which Ife
apparfrmly hostile to Port Royal as the
site for the naval station, says: “It (the
station at Port Royal) can b* converted
into a valuable pitnt, but only by ex
joeridin? a gr<-a4 deal of money.” Grant
ing tha* to be true, would not the gum
r>fee#ary to be expanded at Port Royal
in ord*r to secure a “valuable plant" be
less byglarge figures th.sn the sum it
would be necessary to expend to secure
an equally valuable plant “at or near the
cftjr of Charleston?” At he latter place
th*re would have to be a large amount of
dredging before the big ships could get
anywhere near the dock site; and then
•here would be a dock to construct and
numerous buildings and expensive water
works to be erect'd, all of which are al
ready at Port Royal. Asa matter of
it would cost the government Mter
afly millions of dollars to remove the sta
tion to Charleston, whereas the prob
abilities are that the Port Royal station
could be “converted into a valuable
plan ’ for a f*w hundreds of thousands.
Th- - heme for tho removal, therefore,
must be based upon some other ground
than a desire to save money for the gov
ernment. The Greenville News the other
day said the removal was to be “for j>o
litical and social reasons.” To these, of
course, must be added the commercial
reasons which are giving strength to
I'HBUDUST H % HI’KH'M KXPF.HI-
President Hflrper of lhe University of
Chicago is going lo try t 6 live on food
costing fifteen cents* a day for the space
of two weeks. He will do this tn compli
ment to Miss Katharine Davis, a young
woman connected with the university, who
advances the proposition that a person
can get along on that sum per diem for
food, and at the same time attend to busi
ness. Dr. Harper will not guarantee that
he will go through the fourteen 'days on
the fifteen-eent limit, but he will stick
to It for several days-long enough to
make some sort of demonstration of Miss
Davis’ theory. When the doctor begins
his task he will be weighed, and when he
cries out, "enough!” he will be weighed
In view of all the facts In connection
with this question of diet, It seems that
Dr. Harper's experiment will resolve Itself
into a demonstration of the effect cheap
and wholesome food costing fifteen cents
per day has upon a rotund and unc
tions gentb man who has bee n accustomed
to the best of all the good things the mar
kets afford In the way of eatables. For
there Is not any question res|>ertlng the
possibility of a person subsisting, and even
doing hard and regular work, upon food
costing fifteen cents a day. Asa matter
of fact there are many working people
In this country who are living on less than
that sum every day. On the turpentine
plantations of Oeorgla, Florida and Ala
bama, where the work Is very hard and
where an abundance of muscle and
"wind” are In imperative demand, the
weekly ration for an adult “hand" con
sists of five pounds of bacon and a peck
of ctorn meal. At the country commis
saries the bacon Is worth twelve and onc
half cents a pounil and the meal twenty
five cents a peek. That Is the normal
food supply for the week of seven days,
costing at retail eighty-seven and one
half cents, or twelve and one-half cents
a day; and the big and brawny turpentine
worker finds It all sulHciont for the needs
of the Inner man. In some Instances a
pint of molasses, worth five cents at the
country commissary, is added to the ra
It has he<n estimated by a writer on
the subject that onc-thlrd of the people
of England and two-thirds of the people
of Scotland and Ireland live on less than
twelve dents a day, while tn Asia and Af
rica there are uncounted millions who live
on two or three cents a day. It Isn’t fair
to compare living In this country with liv
ing In the latter countries, of cotirae; but
It may he safely stated that there are mil
lions of persons In the United States who
live wtlhtn u flfteen-cent limit. They are
to be found In the forests, the fields, the
factories; In villages, towns and cities—

Great Britain, which is almost constantly
at war in some quarter of the globe, has
a pension list amounting to about $9,(00,000
—a sum that 'hooks like thirty cents”
alongside our pension list of about $140,-
•/.W. Tr.e military budgets of Russia.
France and Germany amount to about 22
per -ent of their revenues. Our pensions
amount to 24 per cent, of our revenues,
:n addition to which our military estab

Last year, it is calculated, pensions and
mair.tenanee of army and navy cost the
United States government 57S per cent,

cludes the extraordinary expenses conse
quent upon the war with Spain.
Th* Standard Oil Company will shortly

ler's share of the forthcoming distribution
will amount to $2,566,000 —an income which
cannot be called “princely,” since that cd-
Jectlve falls short of expressing the magni

The Philadelphia city government Is

It is proposed to ice the water in the

general advance in the world and the

T'wler the caption, "A Bugle Call to
Americans," the Charleston News and
"Courier (Dem.) says of Mr. Bryan's
speech: "The keynote of Mr. Bryans
speech Is that the republic is in danger,
that the liberties of the people are threat
ened. that the few have already amassed
great wealth, and the mighty trusts and
corporations which are engaged In amass
ing greater and greater fortunes, who re
gard a dollar as more important than a
life, have already obtained a strong hold
on the government, and that Infix rialism
Is but one of the methods they have
adopted to strengthen their power, lo ob
tain a great standing army, by which to
control the masses of the people at home,
who In heir opinion are like the Filipinos,
In that they do not know how to govern
themselves. If we would save our own
teenies we must respect the liberties of
dthers. We must not provide armies to
subdue the Filipinos without reflecting
that those same armies may be used to
subdue us. Mr. Bryan, moreover, does
not leave the Filtplno question up In the
air. He does not say what we must not
do, and leave to somebody else to suggest
what we must do. He announces a clear
and distinct policy which he will follow If
The 6t. Louis Globe-Democrat (Rep.)
says: "North Carolina has yet to prove
that It can disfranchise 80.000 voters and
still claim the same representation In Con
gress." To this the, Memphis Commercial-
Appeul (Dem.) replies: "What then shall
ho done to Massachusetts which has dis
franchised fully 265,000 voters? Massachu
cetts has tin educational qualification and
the Australian ballot system. According to
the census of 1800 there were 065,009 voters
In that state. There were also 114.468 Illit
erates. The total vote of 1896 was 401,568,
which Is 265,000 less than the total popula
tion, This enormous number of voters
was of course disfranchised by the election
laws of Massachusetts. That state would
consequently lose 4u per cent, of Its repre
sentation In Congress."
The Columbia (8. C.) State (Dem.) says:
“Charles A. Towtie honors himself by his
declination, yet even more by the terms
In which It Is expressed. There was and
could have been no doubt that he wouldde
cline, for he is a patriot and his heart Is
In the success of Bryan.”
The Atlanta Journal (Dem.) says: "Mr.
Bryan has never made sn abler, more
statesmanlike or more timely address to
the country. It will add largely to hi
reputation and will enhance greatly the
prospect of hie election."

Why the Reporter Stayed.
The d*a'h of Ballard Smith last week
‘‘alls to mind numerous stories bearing
upon newspaper inc'dents and newspaper
men during the period of his active work
in this city, from 1876 to the middle nine
ties, says the New York Commercial.
While he was managing editor of the Sun
he was asked one day by Amo? Cummings
to find a place somewhere in the Sun out
fit for his friend Murrey, who was am
b tious to shine in the newspaper world,
and was willing to start in on almost
any sort of a job. Murrey wns none othfer
than Thomas Murray, who later became
widely known as an epicure, achieved
rational farm as “Terrapn Tom.’’ author
of several works on cook ng, and was
for some years keeper of the House res
taurant in the- Capitol building at Wash
ington, largely through the influence of
Smith subt-e tucntly had an opportunity
to set Tom Murrey to work, and the lat
ur appeared one fine Sunday morning for
an assignment. It was during one of thos?
spasmodic efforts to enforce the New York
excise laws with reference to the Sunday
closing of saloons, cafes and all such
places, and, as Tom was known to have
extensive acquaintance in the old Tender
loin, he was assigned to that territory as
a field of observation.
“First,” were hi-? instructions from
Managing Editor Smith, “you get a cor
rect list of all the barrooms in your dis
trict; then move about among them all
day, ascertaining which are open and
which are closed, ard what ones, if any,
are selllrg on Ihe sly. Do the w'ork thor
oughly now. Much depends upon it.”
Tom got up into the Tenderloin as speed
i y as possible, and start' and in on a sys
tematic round of the “laboratories.” At 8
o'clock in the evening he hadn’t shown
•ip in the Sun office, and the telephone
was brought into active service to locate
him—but with no results. And the paper
finally went to press without any story
from “Terrapin Tern."
It was late Wednesday night when the
missing reporter at last put in an appear
an< e and presented himself at Ballard
“Well.* said the editor in a tone that
betrayed sharp irritation, “what have you
got to say for yourself?”
"Only this,” was “Terrapin’s” brief but
significant reply: ‘ They were all wide

And she wild, "That artist’s mop of silky
hair will never do.
As the noble game of football does not fill
you with delight;
As you do not ploy piano at a concert
As you nevere painted pictures, and for
acting do not rare—
Why. you really have no business with
that silly shock of hair."
Now, (he lion, though a tighter, did not

And he’d found that to avoid It he must

you say Is always right,
I will part with my adornment. If you
wish, this very night;
You're my only little wlfey; I obey at

think It's for the best."
She took him to the barber's, and the bar
ber shouted "Next!"
And the lion wus be-aproned, though he
felt extremeely vexed.
Then Ms wife said lo the barber, “Cut It
close or even shorter;
Why, In fact, take all the hair off that
you care to for a quarter.”
So the barber piled his scissors, and he
cut with main and might.
All VV> soon the Joh was finished, and
the lion was a fright—
First he looked Into the mirror, then he

And the barber and his scissors—they
