MILITARY RULE IN EUROFE. War Is Considered Possible nnd Even Probable at Any moment. European civilization to-day is based on the idea that war is not only an immi nent possibility hut a probability, and a great class in every country has been trained to look upon biood- , shedding1 as its proper vocation. The great prizes are reserved for sol diers; honors, fame, position and the monarch's favor to go to the sons of Mars. The military budget exceeds many times over does it exceed the appropriations for public instruction. The salary of a colonel is earned by but few professors, writes W. E. Thayer, in the Forum. The cost of the powder and shot wasted in Europe between any dawn and dusk would probably pay the running expenses of all her public hos pitals. In each government, whether it be constitutional or autocratic, the army may with truth be said to direct legisla tion, for the legislatures willingly or unwillingly vote the appropriations de manded by the war department. Even if ...

Of course, as the loss of heat goes on, the gaseous parts will turn into liquids, and as the pro cess is still further protracted, the liquids will transform into solids. " Thus we look forward to a time when the radiation of the sun can be no longer conducted in conform- ity with the laws which dictate the ' loss of heat from a caseous body. When this state is reached the sun may, no doubt, be an incandescent solid with a brilliance as great as is compatible with that condition, but the further loss of heat will then involve loss of temperature.

DEFINITION OF WEALTH. Something New for Political Econ omists to Consider. A. Critical Asalysla of the "Word TVklch. Deflact Its True Meaning and limitations An Interest ing: Study. The term "wealth" seems to have been formed by combination of the two old Saxon words, "weal" and "things;" and the process may have been like this: Weal things, weal-things, wealth (pronounced as two syllables, with "ings" dropped), and finally wealth as we now have it. But, however formed, that the term wealth is identical in .meaning with weal-things there can be . no donbt. By examining these two words, therefore ascertaining their meanings and combining them, if the work be well done, the exact and com plete meaning of the word wealth will appear.' The word "thing," says the Chicago Journal, springs from an old Saxon root which signifies "to be heavy." But what is heavy is of material substance and is an object of sense. A thing, then, is any material object cognizable by the senses. But it is espec...

To those whom the mines of Cal ifornia have brought prosperity,and wp.ilth and means of hanniness, the prospector should be remembered. He found the vein for the gold and the yein for the silver, whose opu lent product has been the wealth of the land. He, through all vicissi tudes, all discouragements and many failures had the abiding faith, the daily renewed hope, the stead', almost dogged, perseverance. Others who come here expecting to find the waters of the streams running over beds of golden sands, might turn back. He stayed and he dug. As the beds of the streams lailed to show anything beyond the suggestion of golden wealth, he went into the mountains, and there, hunted and labored with every liv ing hope and unflagging energy, he finally found the great veins that Btretched their opulent lengths along beneath the great range.

He thinks St. Pe tersburg a more comfortable place of residence than London, Paris or Berlin. The temperature is not subject to the frequent changes which are such a fruitful source of illness in the United States. In strong contrast with the situation in most American cities is the fact that no fault can be found with the street-cleaning department. Of es pecial interest are Mr. Smith's views concerning the Russian Govern ment, nihilism and the Czar.

A few chance pedestrians who were out for a morning stroll witnessed a brief out Woody "battle through the windows of the Market street bird store on a recent morning. Among the denizens of the place is a monkey called Jocko, whose proclivity for mischief has led him into disgrace before. On the morning in question Jocko determined to go on a lark, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. He suc ceeded in picking the lock of his cage, and once free, turned his attention tc his feathered companions. It tookbul a few minutes to unlock a dozen of the various cages in the room, and soon a funny procession of moukeys, parrots and macaws was strutting about. In a few minutes trouble began tc brew. One of the parrots, in a spirit o: mischief, probably, bit Jocko and a live ly battle ensued. Polly soon found that she was getting the worst of it and made a rus...

' The details of the scheme and the personnel of its promotion must remain for future ascertain ment;, but meantime the ultimate accomplishment of the project seems to admit of little doubt. The really serious question suggested by this fact is whether the people of the United States consider they have any interest in it and propose to have anything to say about it? Do they suppose they have any rights affected by the scheme ; and, if so, are they prepared to assert them? or do they choose to wait supinely until those rights have been put beyond the avail of pro iest oi law?
