No one be? lieves that we have the ability to pay the debt in aceordar.ee with the late decision, everyone believes that the debt is too unjust for us to make the effort to pay it, if we had the ability.

How Is Your Backbone! When a person compliments an? other by saying be has a good deal of "backbone" lie comes very near stating a scientific truth without knowing it perhaps. At least, so remarked a naval medical officer to the Washington Star the other day, as the latter stopped to chat in the room of the Naval Examining Board. "Step up here a moment," eon tin tied the officer to a meas? uring rod which stood in one cor? ner of the room. This rod, besides having the movable arms with which a man's bright is gauged, had another intermediate arm ho low, by which the length id' his logs is determined. The difference bo ! tween these measurements, of eourse, shows the length of his body and head. '-There/' said the o'ttcef, after the reporter had sub j?uteri himself to the measuring loeoss, "you are sixty nine and five eighth inches tall, your legs are t orty-three and live eighth inches i ng?pretty good legs?and that leaves a length of body thirty-six indies.
