The New York correspondent for the St Louis Republic says that "so congested has the port of entry become with the pauper hordes of Europe that the facilities for examining each individual considered adequate one year ago havo been so overtaxed that the unusual procedure of inspecting steerage passengers at the pier was iesorted to." Ellis island's capacity for handling immigrants has been found to be 8,000 a day, but, according to the Repub.ic correspondent, the island is now so thronged with immigrants that there is hardly room to move around.

How Milan came to lose his throne and l'ow his son Alexander came to lose it i& told in the events of one of the most disgraceful chapters in the history of modern Europe. In the year 1900 King Alexander started on a tour of Europe in search of a bride. He visited all the courts of Europe. His experiences were highly discouraging. 1-e saw the king of the Belgians and was coldly but politely informed that he need not look for a wife there. The king even attempted to secure a rich American bride, but .his ef forts in this direction were as futile as they had been everywhere else. It is at this point in the reign of Alexander that the woman Draga Maschin entered the history of Ser via and began the career of petty in trigue that ended with her assassina tion. Draga Maschin...

The exercise by many of the same faculty on the same subject would naturally lead tfc the same conclusions. But if not, the very differences of opinion that arise prove the supremo judgment of the general mind. Truth is one. It never contradicts itself. One truth cannot contradict another truth. Hence truth is the bond of union. But error not only contradicts truth, but may contradict Itself, so that there may be many errors and each at var iance with the rest Truth is thc;efore of neces sity an element of harmony; error aa necessarily an element of discord. Thus there can be no continuing universal judgment but a right one. Men cannot agree in an absurdity; neither can they agree in a falsehood.
