Y..for seventy- wo consecutive years, has boen in- cited to attend the inauguration as guest of the department. Mr. 3ardsley was appointed by John Juincy Adams and has served un- ler nineteen Presidents and thirty- •hree Postmasters Genei'al. Postmaster Bardsley attends to the duties of the office daily. His salary amounts to about the same as did in 1828, an average of $175 a pear. There were 8,004 Post Offices in the United States when he was appointed and now there are 76.688. 200 Home Expansion Needed. Let the merits of expansion be yond the seas be what they w here are some facts well worth at- tention. We paid $20,000,000 for the Philippines and nobody know; how many more millions it may cosi us to keep them. Yet it is said thai $10,000,000 expended upon our un- turned and unoccupied lands in the West would redeem a territory many times larger thau the whole Philippine group and transform ii into a beautiful garden.—[Boston Globe. A Oentnry-Old View. At an epoch so strikingly singular as the pi'esent; what sensations crowd upon the reflecting mind and how forcibly occur the questions What was the situation of the coun- try^ this day, one hundred years ago? And what is it now ? Where the deep silence of the woods was disturbed by no sound but from the dread savage and the wolf, fields now smile under the plastic hand of the cultivator and the groves ply in glad responses. Long ma; this happy procession continue anc may the commencement of the nex' century witness a greater advance to virtue, power and glory than oven the last.—[Prom the Baltimore Gazette, Jan. 1, 1901. Adirondack Guides, The annual meeting of the Adiron- dack Guides' Association, will be 3eld in the village of Saranac Lake, n the Town Hall, on Jan. 22.. A ull attendance is earnestly hoped or. One great object of this asso- iation is to create and foster a more general public sentiment in favor of Ish, game and forest protection, to jrocure the enactment of laws, for :he protection of fish and game, for he preservation of our forests and promote the observance of such aws. The annual dues of $1 for .901 will be payable on that date. mature timber, which under the resent condition goes to waste. Cornell University, under pro- isions already made by the Legis- lature, is now at work on the prob- lem, and the United States Forestry epartment is preparing working plans for various townships which will be included in the commission's eport. The: matter is one of inter- jst to taxpayers, and it is believed ;hat the subject will come up for irious discussion in the Legislature lefore the session is over. here will be two isions, one at ! p.m., for reports and election of ifflcers; the other at 7:30 p.m., for liscussions and speech-making, 'rominent speakers are expected. Old Mountain\ Helps Wintering At His Keene Valley Home. 'Old Mountain\ Phelps, probably he best known guide living in the mtire Adirondack region, is winter- ng well at his home in Keene Val- y.

The Champlain Transportation Company has awarded the contract 'or the construction of a new steam- oat to replace the Vermont to The W. & A. Fletcher Company of Ho- oken. N. J. The new steamboat ill bear the name Vermout. It will be a modern boat, built along he lines of the Chateaugay. Modern machinery, an electric light plant and the finest furnishings will make the new Vermont truly the \Queen >f the Lake.\ The boat will be 250 feet long on ;he water line and 262 over all. The 3eam will be thirty-five feet, two nches over all. The boat will draw eleven feet, six inches. The capacity ill be 2,500 persons. Four water- ight bulkheads insure safety. The lining hall will have a capacity for L50 persons. There will be main, promenade and hurricane decks. The boat is a side-wheeler. Her engine is a vertical beam, with jet jondenser and Morgan type feather- ng wheel, the same as the Chateau- gay. She will have two return-flue boilers twenty-six feet, six inches long, nine and one-half feet in di- ameter and eleven feet across the end. The diameter of the cylinder is fifty-five inches, with a ten feet- stroke piston. Altogether the new boat will be he finest ever floated on Lake Cham- plain. While not quite so large as he Vermont, the new boat will be faster and more sumptuously equip- ped. It is an undertaking of which the company may be proud, and which is justified by the excellen business methods employed by this company. The executive committee in charge of the construction includes: Presi- dent Young, Vice President W. S. Webb of Shelburne and General Manager George Rush low.—Ex. Bulwark of Trusts, Prof. Jenks of Cornell university is a Republican and a protectionist, but he is not mentally blind. In a •ecent essay on the relation between the tariff and the trusts, he frankly admits that the Dingley tariff is the handmaid, if not \the mother of irusts,\ as Havemeyer, the protect- ?d sugar monopolist, openly stated jefore a congressional committee. These are not the only admissions made by prominentRepublicanscon- serning the effects of the tariff as the mlwark behind which monopolies and trusts are entrenched. A while ago Commissioner John A. Kasson, the able man selected by President McKinley to negotiate reciprocity treaties, declared that the Dingley tariff could not have been passed but r the argument that its harsh and malignant features would be miti- gated by treaties of reciprocity; and yet while many have been written md signed,not one has been mtilied. Fhe failure of Congress to approve ucli poor reciprocity treaties as Commissioner Kasson has been per- litted by tariff provisions to ne- gotiate, shows how this hope was 'rust rated. Quite recently Mr. eorge E. Roberts, director of the lint (another strenuous Republican), said that the party should revise the tariff and repeal or reduce such luties us the development of our in- .ustries has shown to be supcrfiu- us. Exports show that the tariff is without the excuse of protection 'rom foreign commodities, but it is needed to enable American manu- facturers to extort higher prices from American consumers than they ire glad to sell for to foreigners. Dne can go to Africaand buy Ameri- can plows cheaper thau they are sold in Michigan. It is a very smooth ;ume the tariff bai'ons with their lillions of wealth are playing to the detriment of American consumers —Boston Post- SCIENTIFIC POEESTBY. A State Commission's Beoommedation in Eolation to the Adirondack Preserve. One of the leading recommenda- tions of the annual report of the Forest, Fish and Game Commission, which is about to be presented to the Legislature, is that the state should provide for the application of scientific forestry to the Adiron- dack preserve. The great woodlan estate over which this Commission has sole control now comprises total of 1,384,128 acres, all but 84,941 acres of which is in the Adirondacks. The statistics of timber produc- tion collected for the commission by the Superintendent of Forests, Col. W. F. Fox, form an interesting f< ture of the report in this connection. The figures showing the productior for the year are as follows: formed the law firm of Gregory, Booth & Harlan, which succeded to the practice of Mr. Fuller.

Oft In the stilly night, Ere slumber's chain has bound me, Fond memory brings the light Of other days around me; The smiles the tears, Of boyhood's years, The words of love then spoken; The eyes that snone, Now dimmed and gone, The cheerful hearts now broken. Thus in the stilly night, Ere slumber's chain has bound me, Sad memory brings the light Of other days around me. When I remember all The friends, so linked together, t've seen around me fall, Like leaves in wintry weather, I feel like one Who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, Whose garlands dead, And all but he departed. Ere slumber's chain has bound me, Sad memory brings the light Of other days around me. 50 YEARS' ERIENCE PATENTS DESIGNS COPYRIGHTS &C. A^^snd'n g a BSeteb a^desoripMoB pay tionsstric 1 sent free.

C. ooooooooooooooo oo SActress Who Was Not ActiveS 0 0 ooooooooooooooooo For two weeks we had been playing to crowded houses. The fame of Una Howard, our star, had preceded us to the Pacific coast. I was about to close the office when a voice from the crowd attracted mv attention. A tall, strange-looking man was making his way toward me. 'I beg a favor of you,\ said he. \I want to enter the theatre for just a moment. I care nothing for the play, * at I must see Miss Una Howard. \I have no money, but I must see Una. Will you give me a ticket? I have walked 300 miles to see her, and 1 must.\ He waited for my answer, but I could only disappoint him. \I cannot blame you,\ said he, eor- rowfully; \but I must see Una. Will you be so kind as to wait one half hour?\ • He returned sooner than he prom- ised. All breathless with haste, his hat gone and the empty sleeve torn away, he threw a half-eagle upon the board, and snatching a ticket was off before I could pass him the change. Wondering what this strange man could know or want of the peerless Una Howard, I closed the office and entered the theatre. When I entered, Una had just come upon the stage, and the applause that greeted her was still echoing through the hall. She raised her eyes, and I was startled by the change that came over ier face. Her gaze was Tiveted upon some object directly in front. There stood the one-armed man, his burning devouring eyes looking full upon Una. Whiter and whiter grew Una.

However, if any 000 can tell me what became of Ericsson, I am open to con- viction.\-N«w Orleans Times-Deiiu* j cxat - - T' t r Philip Pem'Gse and John Carleton had been chums since boyhood—ever since that memorable day at an early stage of their school life when John Carleton had fought and vanquished the bully of the class for his coward- ly assault on the \new boy.,' Philip studied medicine and became a successful practitioner in his native New England town. John adopted a business career. But their friendship did not end with their separation. They corresponded regularly, keeping each other in touch with their affairs. John fell in love with the \dearest girl in the world\ and married her, but Philip, who for some reason had al- ways dislike.! and avoided women, re- mained a bachelor—the despair alike of manoeuvring mammas and. schem- ing spinsteis. About two years' after John's mar- riage Philip was stunned at receiving a letter from his friend apprising him of the fact that his wife had left him for no other reason than that they had quarrelled,, and that John, in a mo- ment of temper, had said something for which he was afterward sorry. It was about six months after learn- ing of John's marital misfortune that Dr. Penrose called one day to attend a young widow named Mrs. Feltoii, re- siding with her mother, and evidently a newcomer in the neighborhood. • He found his new patient and her mother to be extremely reticent about their affairs, yet during his attendance on the former he learned that she for- merly lived in a Western city, and that she had come East in the hope» of obtaining employment as a teat-h- er or governess. Philif continued to call on her long after one would have supposed ther^ was any need of his professional ser- vices. Perhaps it was the appealing sadness in her large dark eyes that at- tracted him; perhaps it was the un- wavering reserve and dignity of her manners. The upshot of the matter was that Dr. Penrose asked her to be his wife, and was firmly refused. Pressed for a reason, she answered that she did not love him. To which he calmly replied that, as she was the only woman he ever would or could love, he intended to win her affection, and was willing to wait years, if need be, to attain that result. Philip's determined atti- tude forced a more explicit reply from Mrs. Felton, and she finally admitted that there was an insurmountable ob- stacle to their union in that her hus- band v/r.s not dead but living! Quivering like a stricken deer under the blow. Philip began involuntary piecing together in his. mind certain ideas, the chief of which was that Felton had been the maiden name of John's wife, and on a sudden the aw- ful truth flashed upon him. \John Carleton—he is your hus- band?\ he said huskily. For answer she burst into uncontrollable weeping. Whatever may have been the rtate of Philip Penrose's mind that night as he sat in his study, his pen never faltered in the message it was wri'.ing to John Carleton. The onswe that eame by return post was to the effect that John utterly repudiated his wife; he never would forgive her dcseri.ion of him and was about to seek a di- vorce. And so there came to Philip Penrose the greatest temptation . of his life. All through the long, weary night lie wrestled with it, and when moraine: came it found him aged and worn, but with a grim, determined look on his face. Into the letter that was to plead for the honor and happiness of the two beings he loved best on earth he threw all the eloquence and passion of which he was capable. With what magical power, he wrote may be judg- ed by the reply: \Dear Old Boy: You have conquer- ed. You have shown me plainly wherein I ,was wrong and the way to happiness again. I long to clasp my wife in my arms. God bless you, Philip.\ And Philip? Well, he is one of the ablest physicians of the day and has .amassed a fortune. His hair and shag- gy beard are quite gray now, and he is still a bachelor. But, standing on his desk in a heart-«haped frame, there is a picture of * a younjj; girl, whose dark eyes bear a eingmar re- semblance to those of John's ihf6k Will be at the Parlors of the Maplewood Inn.
