If ttoe world goes wrong now it will 'be easy to un- derstand -why. The more the people read about Miss Alice Roosevelt the 'better they like her. She is endowed with a pecu- liar dharm of grace and energy. •Marcus Hartley iDodge, aged 19 years, student at Columbia, college, heir to $6,000,000, richest young man in the United States, is the interest- ing biography of one young fellow. (Emperor William, who is said to be the most talented and versatile man in Europe, is having his versatility •put to the extreme test—he is study- ing American railway time-tables and \folders.\ The Rev. Dr. Charles Nichols, who achieved notoriety by publishing a list of whom he regarded as the elite of society in the United 'States, has been overwhelmed with orders from lyeeum bureaus and lecturing asso- ciations to define Qua views of what American society should consist. He has a hard proposition, 'to solve. Scattered 'throughout the various de- partments at Washington are hun- dreds of clocks and •chronometers, which cost the goveramenst annually thousands of dollars. The chrono- meters axe the moat expensive docks in existence, and they are to'be found on board every warship of the Unit- ed States. These timepieces cost $400 each. The ones most consulted are those in the marble room of the senate and in the speaker's lobby of the 'house. Hundreds of people daily correct their watches by .them. Germany does not permit her na- tional emblem to be lised in any way as an advertisement. A Massachu- setts firm that wants to advertise gen- erously in the empire has prepared thousands of catalogues bearing the German coat-of-arms, but they cannot be eirculated in the kaiser's domains. It has discovered that the penal code of the empire contains a provision which states that any person who uses the coat-or-arms er flag for saich purposes will be fined not less than 15© marks or punished with impri- sonment A. writer in that influential Pairs newspaper, the Temps, in speaking of the coming visit of Prince Henry, eayg that \America has the satisfac- tion of seeing England and Germany disputing for her favor.\ This is true, of course, and the fact that it is true is rather disagreeable to some of Europe's nations. These disputos for America's favor mairk a pretty important change in Europe's atti- tude toward us within the memory of millions of persons still living. Thirty or forty years ago 'America was deemed of march less consequence ; n the world than it is held todav. Thr- chango ia of considerable significance. Our Newest Possessions. The treaty ror our very newest is- land property, the Danish West In- dies, is to be signed at once, it seems, and the question that has t>een mooted for an entire gen«ra)tion will be set- tled at last. It was thirty-five years a^o, says the Burlington News, that Uncle Sam first got after these islands—Uncle Sam personified in Secretary Seward, who offered $7,500,000 therefor. The Danish government wanted to sell 'em and a plebiscite, held to give the na- tives a chance to express their views resulted in all three islands in but twenty-two votes against the propos- ed union with the United (States. But the plan met opposition in Congress, chief among its opponents being Sen- ator Sunmer, -tfiien the head of the Committee of Foreign Relations, who pigeon-holed the treaty an»d prevent- ed its consideration for a long time. Meanwhile a congressional committee of inspection had been sent to the islands and happened to ,be at St. Thomas .when the great hurricane and tidal wave of 1867 struck the town. When they got back to Washington again they hastened to support Sena- tor Sunwner and the treaty providing- for the purchase of the islands was killed. A good many years another attempt was made to buy the islands. A third attempt was made in 1900. The islands were still on the 'bargain counter, but through an internal change in Denmark, the minister of foreign affairs was displaced. The nenv minister was opposed to the transfer of the islands to the United States, amd a wave of patriotic feeOing 'ept over the country, ibeforb which the Government was obliged to yield, and the negotiations were suspended for a time. A change in the minister of foreign affairs resulted in the re- opening of negotiations, it being con- sidered undesirable to bold fhe isl- nds for financial reasons. The isl- ands' export, trade, normally in large part with the United States has been greatly depressed, and though the commerce might yield sufficient taxa- tion under unrestrained intercourse with the United States to make the islands self-sustaining, at present the Danish Government is obliged to make good a considerable deficit on their account. The negotiations were practically concluded early finis win- ter, only to be held Tip by the demand of the Danish people for a plebiscite. The islands -cut a very small fig- ure, compared with the Philippines. There are omly three of them and Ver- mont is ninety times as big as all of them put together. They have a comlbined area of only 110 square miles, while Vermont has 9500. Of the three islands St. Croix or Santa Cruz—we have a'll heard of Santa Cruz niim—is the biggest. It covers 74 square miles of territory an/d has 20,000 population, mostly negroes. iSt. Thomas, the second in. size, is the most important. It contains the commercial metropolis of the islands, the town of Charlotte Amelie, which is better known as St. Thomas, which has 12,000 inhabitants, while the total population of the island is only a few hundreds larger. l St. Thomas contains but thirty-three square miles of terri- tory, most of it too rocky for cultiva- tion. The third islands is St. Joihn, a rocky islet on which less tha,n a thousand people live. The industries of the islands are the production of sugar, rum, cotton, cof- ee, indigo, cattle and bay rum. The Black Cat. Valparaiso, Ind., Jan. 14, \98. ••Publishers The Black Oat. Boston. Mass. Gentlemen:—A newspaiper man my- self for many years -and now engaged in an effort to train yotuiig men and women in tihe duties and work com- monly coming 1 to the lot of a newspa- per worker, the growth and phenome- nal success of The Black Cat have been an interesting study' for me. I send herewith check; for a year's subscription because hereafter I do not want to depend on the local news dealer who insists that he must serve those who come first. Generally I have to wait for Ms second or third We have courses of study arranged in. all of the common branches and many of the sciences which thousands of students are ciarryinig .with us at their homes through correspondence, besides the 3,000 students here in resi- dence attendance in this college. In the course in journalism where- in an effort is made to familiarize the pupil with the practices of active newspaiper making, one direct ques- tion asked every student is: \What is your favorite magazine 'and why? Write 100 words on this. It may surprise you to learn that re- cently a leading magazine, requested us to say which magazine appeared to be the most popular among crar many students and friends and that after a careful search of the records and the students' manuscripts we were compelled to anslwer tihat The Black Cat was ahead of all others <by more thlan 30 per cent This was indeed a surprise to me, for while I had known that it was coming rapidly to take the rank it deserved I did not realize the speed it was making. Yours very truly, LEWIS D. SAMPSON.\ The above letter is only one of many received by the Publishers of THE BLACK CAT anl speaks for it- self. The past week we received over fifteen orders for this maigtazine. We heartily recommend THE BLACK OAT as a choice of the premiums we are offering. It's stones are excellent.

Mull took his last ride : yesterday and was returned to Ms cell 1 in Clinton prison, where he will re- main for the balance of his life unless | pardoned. With four other prisoners he arrived in Plattsburgh yesterday morning in charge of Sheriff Heerajn, the entire party going to Dannemora | on the Chateaoigay train. Mull was, 'as usual, cheerful. He ,-as neatly dressed and no one unac- u'ainted with his case would take him 'ifor a self-confessed murderer, on his ! way to prison for the balance o<f his He will find plenty of life-long com- pany at 'D&nnemora, there being in that prison at present 65 life term men, one of whom has been there 35 years and who, it is said, could not be in- duced to escape, having no other reifuige on eiartli save the prison. It is now nearly three years since MJull nmirdered Neville B. Lord on his farm in Nassau, and almost murdered Arthur Snyder, a boy employed on the farm. There has been but little change in him in that time, aiuiou'gh eighteen months of it was spent in the deiacu caige at Dannemora under sen- tence of death, pending the appeial which gave him a new lease of life under his plea to murder tin the second degree. He has never abandoned hope of final release and stiu believes he will not die in prison. Those who were taken to prison with Mull were Barney Shepherd, sent for two years for robbery; George Bissette, sent for two years for steal- ing a horse; James Haggerty, sent for three years for burglary, and Joseph Russell, sent for one year for grand larceny. The prisoners were in charge of Sheriff Heeraai and Deputy Hooigkamp, and the party was accompanied by District Attorney Howard, yhof went to Dannemora on business, ?

Wecil George C. Weed, a life-lonlg resi- den. of Ticonderogta, died at his home at 5:30 Monday morning, after an illness of two montus. He was seized with a complication of diseases incident to old age, and since that time his life ,has simply wasted away, until Monday morning when he peacefully and painlessly ended his life, and closed his eyes in death. Thus there passed away a man who has been identified with the principal business activities of Ticonderoga for three score years, or since he w(as a young man. He was bora in Ticon- d'eroga in 1818. He was the son of Joseph Weed, who seventy-five years ago did all the business of Ticon- derogia, which at that time was a mere hamlet. He enigaged in the numbering business rwhen he was a boy of twenty, and was identified witlh it until twenty years ago, at which time he sold the Upper FalU Water Power to the Lake George Pulp & Paper Co. That period marked the closing of his actual connection with 'business. He is the owner oif some real estate in that village and vicin- ity, among which are several fine business blocks, including the First National Bank priperty. A fine farm, known as the Buckiey farm, at Black Poiint, Lake George, a valu- aible piece of property, was also own- ed by Mr. Weed. He was a director and president of the First National Banik of that village. He leaves three sons, Phillip D., John S. and Alfred, all living in Ti- conderoga. His wife died thirteem years ago. His personal character was exemplary. He was of a kind, hospitable, generous disposition, al- ways obliging, and aLways having a tender regard for his friends. His funeral was held at his late residence at two p. m.. on Wednesday. Interment at Mount Hope cemetery, Ticonderoga. Totals 745 619 724 2158 CUMBElRiLANDS.

After the game the teams went to the Alhambra, where a supper was served in Mr. Gagnon's best style. At tine close of the spread cigars were njoyed while stories of interesting games, 'at which the speaker was a spectator or took active part, were re- lated. The Phil-Agoitians. The A'goniians and Philaletheans held in Agonian hall, presidents O'Mara and Rea presiding. The program w<as a most entertain- ing one, and the members who took part deserve much credit for the care- ful preparation which wtas necessary to produce the program in the manner of its presentation. The society work, though apparently without sufficient results to warrant the sipending of as much time as a good program needs, will be so helpful to members in the future thJat they wtill never regret the time spem/t ia this diversion, from school duties. The following: is the program: Address 'by Agonian President Miss O'Mara Inst. Duet—Mr. Wilson, cornet; Mr. Doty, violin; Miss Blanchard, ac- companist. Declam'aition—Battle of Manila Bay. Mir. Braman Medley—Mr. Haigar, Miss Kelleher, Miss MoCrea, Mr. Stoughton, Miss Sullivan. Music—Miss Blanchard, pilano; Mr. Vincent, cornet; Miss Marie Fre- chette, 1st violin; Mr. Toty, 2d violin. The supervisors of Hamilton county arrowly escaped arrest Saturday on an order of Justice Stover for con- Xew Yacht Club House. The Lake Champlain Yacht Club has decided to build the club house in Burlington, the former one having been destroyed by fire a few months ago. The new building will be slight- ly smaller than the former structure. It is also proposed to build ia piazza over that portion of the dock which exends to the northward. A new feature also will be a covered carriage entrance. As soon as the plans are decided upon, which will probably be within a few days the special timber will be ordered. The work of repair- ing the dock will be begtun by _the Central Vermont at once. The Yacht Club have settled with the railroad, and work on the new club house will be begun as soon as the necessary pre- liminaries are over. It will be ready for occupancy at the latest by the 1st if June. Tor < hani{)!iisii canal. A delegation 'headed by former Con- gressman Wallace T. Foote, Frank S. Witherbee arid Walter C. Witherbee, called on Governor Odell Tuesday, and ureged him to recommend that the Champlain canal be included in the improvement proposition now pending in the legislature. The delegation in- cluded canal boat owners, shippers and others using the Ghiamplain canal.They told the governor that one-third the entire commerce of the canals was carried on the Champlain and that it was just as important that it be im- proved as the Erie. The governor said thtat he would take the matter under consideration.—'Albany Argms. Small Pox at Topper Lake. Dr. Daniel Lewis, state commission- er of health, stated Wednesday that he bad received a report of another small pox case in a lumber camp back of Tupper Lake. He says that tlhere are rumors of other cases in adjoining places in the woods. The commission- ed will send another inspector to the Adirondaoks to investigate the con- tradictory reports regarding the situ- ation.

There were not as many floats and conveyances in line as • Pittsburgh is capable of furnishing, I but, without exception, those which j were in line were most creditably dec- I orated,, and made a most pleasing ap- j There were floats representing thej ! following business houses.: Carpeniter's ' Trucking, Aubin's Trucking, F.

Gilliland, red and white; Miss Helen Smith, red; Aubin's float had signs advertising many firms. The signs were painted by Willett & Squires. W. W. Guibord's float consisted of advertisements of Chase & Sanborne's coffee, In the center was a huge nine- foot coffee pot, from which steam was visible during the entire trip. The Dock & Coal Co. had a float of coal, hay and flour, drawn by four horses. This made an attractive dis- play, land advertised the extensive line of produce dealt in by the firm. Henry, Wood & Marshall were rep- resented by a very handsome float whiten represented much hard work on the part of that enterprising firm. The varied line of hardware and other 'goods carried by the firm were at- tractively displayed. The Sherwin- Williams paints were much in evi- dence, while the sashes, doors and blinds were effectively used in making the float attractive. George H. Carroll & Co. had an ex- cellent float, representing a two-story house, beautifully ifurnislhed. The walls were covered with appropriate draperies, and the entire scheme of decoration was very harmonious. Mr. Carroll's Little daughter occupied the second story, while Mr. Carroll was on the first floor. The float was drawn by six horses. Ohiilde & Byrnes had . one of the handsomest as well as the largest floats in the parade. The car was trimmed with white and green, and bore a number of fine carriages car- ried by the firm. Messrs. Childs & Byrnes, the members of the firm, rode in a handsome carriage harnessed to the horse sign. C. W.

Carroll; best uacorated double private turnout, Frank Justin; best decorated rig (sin- gle), Mrs. Milo F. Randall.\ The above simple statement gives but poor expression to the committee's feelings, and for the encouragement of those who did not win prizes, let it be sitated, that so excellent were the ef- forts and so ssuocessful tihat not a sin- gle prize iwiraner had the unanimous vote of the committee. It was indeed ia difficult problem. The uniform ex- cellence made the matiter of decision one of igreat perplexity. Bach re- ceived the best and choicest in its turn unitirthe committee with the dis- tracted \gallant\ exclaimed: \How happy could I be with either, Were t'other fair charmer 1 away.\ It was the unanimous . feeling that there should 'be at least have been second prizes to reward something of the merit shown. On one thing the committee was a unit, namely, that had Cleve Smith hitefhed Ms goats together as a team he would have been awarded the prize .without a question. Unfortu- nately some evil spirit (whispered in his ear to hitch them tandem, and the committee was precluded by the term of tihe competition from givinig more than \honaraible mention,\ but hon- orable mention they biave, together ; with tne horse that made so large a j hole in the Dock & Coal Co.'s exhibit. The prizes were: For the best dec- orated ri'g, a picture; tor the double ng, a fine light Ciidelabrnm, an-1 a handsome cloct for the > -K i decorated float Tlie Bare.*, At the grounds in the afternoon two races were trotted.

In the 2:29 class, Lula dreiw he pole. Roy second. Hinds third and Biilly O. fourth. They were set away well bunched, Hinds leading slightly, Roy second and Billy O. -third. It was soon seen that Lula was out of her class. Hinds won the heat in an exciting finish. The result was as follows: Hinds 1 1 1 Roy 2 2 2 Billy 0 3 3 ? Lula 4 4 4 Time—2:2s-4, 2:29%, 2:32%. The 2:35 cla?R had four starters o^ evenly matched horses, which foil? 1 \ out the places credited to them in thp score in a way which makes a man think that he is getting something \for his money.

In the hope of saving the Sultan's E\ life, rthere was given to a successful liteHary club in Louisville, Ky., the problem of writing a short story in which a well-bred young lady has to find herself, in a natural manner, in a II barber shop at midnight. \~ In tfae Harem \I will now,\ said Scheherazade II., \relate the story of the young and well-bred lady in a barber shop at midnight—\ But with these words the beautiful accomplished Sultana, ithe modern ri- val of the illustrious story teller of the thousand and one nights, fell back upon her cushions dead. Paralysis of the tongue and paresis, caused by ov- ertaxing her inventive faculties, had come upon her. The grief of the Sultan was only ex- ceeded by his curiosity to know the outcome of the tale his favorite wife had barely begun, and he declared that the lady who could tell him the story should become the successor of her for whom he so deeply grieved; but no one could be found who knew the story of the wellbred lady in a barber shop at midnight. A deep melancholy seized the Sultan, 'amd in spite of every effort of his court, the unfortunate ruler grew daily more de- spondent, mntil his life was despaired of. Tte 5 Willing Maidens It was then that there appeared at the-palace-gate one day, in tourist's garb, five young ladies from the Unit- ed States, each more beautiful than the other and each asser'trag that she, and only she, knew the story of the well-bred young lady in a barber shop at midnight. They were at once wel- comed to the palace, where they re- lated to the Sultam the following nam- ed stories as told by five members of the literary club above mentioned: — A Hair-breadth' Scape, by Margaret isiteel Anderson The Pink Umbrella,'by Evelyn Knead Barnett Force of Circumstances, by Mary F.

Senaor Malby, of Ogdensburg, &ays the Albany Argus, denies the report that he aspires to be Lleuenant Gov- ernor, and adds that there is a good prospect tnat he will not return next year to the Senate. He believes that there are other lines of endeavor of more profit to him than lawmakiag, and he believes that he has done his duty as a citizen by being in the Legislature in both Loweir and Upper Houses for upwards of twelve years. Incidentally, it may b^ mentioned that there is a boom up his way to send him to Congress. Here in Al- bany Senator Malby is one of the big guns, but a own in Washington he would not have much influence.
