rEX MILLION MEN.
, S timber of Troops the United States
Could Put on a War Footing.
According to a report on the
organized militia of the United
States, which has just been pre-
pared by the War Department, the
United States in case of need, can
put 9,467,694 in the field.
At the close of the year 1895 ev-
ery State and Territory, with the
exception of the Indian Territory
and Alaska, had an organized
National Guard The total force
of the militia numbers 115,669, of
which 102,604 composed the in-
fantry arm, 5,215 the calvry, 5,267
the artillery, 649 special corps and
1,443 generals and t-taff officers.
The total appropriation allowed
the militia by the government
amounted to $400,000, while the
States during the same period,
spent $2,834,984 on the organiza
tions. * It is estimated that mobi-
lization of the militia could be effect
ed in the diffeient States and Ter-
ritories in from three hours in the
District of Columbia to 72 hours
in Oregon, other State organiza-
tions assembling between these
two periods. It is estimated that
in case of necessity Illinois could
place 852,625 in the ffeld; Penn-
sylvania comes next with 771,874

Death and Doctors.
The question of longevity, or of
how to prolong human life, is one
that has been attracting attention
of late, and a considerable amount
of theorizing has been done with
reference to the decay we call age
and the suspension of the bodily
functions we call death. Dr.
Brown Sequad lifted our hopes
with his great elixir, which didn't
Keep him from dying not long af
ter and which was reluctantly
abandoned after a number of fatal
experiments. A. learned New
York physician theu claimed to
have fathomed the secret of old age
and proclaimed it to be the grad-
ual ossification of the vital or-
gans and the obstruction of their
functions by the deposits-of earthy
salts taken in with food and water;
and his remedy was to. dissolve
these salts with distilled water and
check their accumulation by * a
careful selection of foods.
fountain of youth warranted to be
genuine—a Mr. Havens of San
Francisco. Mr. Havens thinks
that the whole secret of longevity
is to be found in the food we eat
and the water we drink. His sta-
ple article of diet is fruit, and he
allows fish, butter, eggs and milk.
Pastry and even bread are regard-
ed as foes to the human life, and
he speaks strongly of the ills that
meat is heir to. But water es-
pecially he regards as a thing ac-
cursed, and he evidently believes
that while rum may have slain its
thousands water has slain its tens
of thousands. He says that noth-
ing but distillation can render it
harmless. Mr Havens does not
ofl'er any other beverage as a sub-
stitute, and as very few people are
prepared to distill their dr'nking
water, there is little hope that this
sure cure for old age will come in-
to general use. -Indeed, Mr. Ha-
vens has only succeeded in show-
ing us the impossibility of escap-
ing that enevita* disease that has
been mowing down all the genera-
tions of,men since the beginning of
time. Death lurks in our necessa-
ry food and in our necessary drink.
Death is in the pot with our din-
ner, it rattles in our throat with
the cooling draught, it waits for us
in the pleasant gourd by the way-
side spring, its skeleton fingers
clutch the very staff of life and
wield it as a weapon against poor
humanity. Alas, no human doc-
tor can rob the grave of its victory.
I o the end of time the history of
every son of man must end with
the simple words from the Book of
the Generations of Adam—"and
he died."—Commercial Appeal.

Testing- the Doctors.
The emperor of China has late-
ly had so much trouble with his
functionaries of every kind that he
has grown distrustful of them all.
He has noticed that while his
statesmen seemed to be widely at
variance, the court physicians a-
greed beautifully, whenever they
were called in together. But a te* t
that he might make of their skill—
and sincerity occurred to him.
Feeling somewhat indisposed
the emperor sent for one of his
court doctors. These physicians
are paid public functionaries, and
are all learned professors. One of
them came, listened to his majes-
ty's account of his trouble, diag-
nose^ it, prescribed, and took his
Then the emperor sent for an-
other court doctor, and gave him
exactly the same account of
his difficulty. The doctor thf-n
made his owi. diagnois, whcih was
quite different from his brother
phvsician's7prescribed a different
remedy, and went his way.
A third and fourth physician was
called, and each found a different
Still another philospher now ap- disease, and prescribed a ditierent

came angry and also sarcastic, and
begged t know how he could have
so many things the matter with
him and live,and whether he should
continue to live if he took ail the
diverse sorts of .medicine that had
that day been prescribed lor him
The doctors could give him no
satisfactory answer to thse ques-
tions, eaeh insisted that he was
right and ail the others wrong. But
the emperor declared that thi.~
could not be true, and condemned
every one of the physicians to lo.-e
a months salry.
Of course the moral of this sto-
ry has no occidental application

countries reserve ttie right to disa

are alway entertaining because of
his marked and rugged peisonality.
They are now recalling-a story of
a man who was noted for the vigor
of his language when he was' in
earnest, and who showed a marked
disregard for all those things that
are generally considered in con-
nection with the immortality of
the soul. One day it became
noised about the street that the
old man had given $40,000 to a
church and the name of those who
hastened to congratulate him upon
seeing the error of his ways, was
legion He was chafed, and he
grunted and puffed while saying
world things under his breath.
When he could stand the run no
longer he blurted out to an audi-
ence of his intimates: "Boys, I
haven't got any more religion than
usual and I didn't give up $4t,000
because I repented of .my sins.
The church owed that amount and

New York, March, 13.—The
Rev. James Weston, rector of the
Episcopal Church of the Ascension
at Hickory N. C., who latel} wrote
a volume entitled "Historic
Doubts as to the Execution of
Marshal Ney," has informed his
publisher, Thomas Whittaker of
this city, that the theory that Ney
was not killed on Dec. 7, 1815, has
been further confirmed by further
researches. According to advices
in the book, Ney was not hit by^

was taken to a hospital nj
friends and fled in disguise ^.o\
America, where he lived as Peter
Stuart Ney, a schoolmaster, in
North and South Carolina, until
Nov. 14. 1846. when he died.
Mr. Weston has learned that a
son of Marshal Ney called on Peter
Stuart Ney about seven years af-
ter the latter's arrival in America.
A few days ago Mr. Weston found
that this son, a respected physi-
cian, was living in a little town
near Louisville Kv. He is 88
years old. He admitted his iden-
tity to Mr. Weston. He said he
came to this country in 1837 and
his father gave him $1000. He
entered the Jefferson medical col-
lege in Philadelphia, wheie he
was graduated. During his whole
life in the United States, however,
he has lived under an assumed
name. He said that on the even-
ing after the supposed execution
his father visited the house ol his
mother in Paris and remained a
ft v\ minutes. He has written a
history of his father, which he. has
placed in Mr. Westun's hands.
His identity will not be divulged
until after his death, when this
book is to be published.
A HORRIBLE SIGHT.
All Nations Arming:
It is not at all encouragmgt o the
various peace societies of this and
other countries, says the Houston
Post, to observe the tremendous
preparations for war that are now
being made by most of the nations
of the earth, i'he millenium can
not be very close at hand when the
energies of the world are devo-
ted to the building of engines of
war and destruction.
The naval intelligence office has
issued a report outlining the pro-
posed increase of the world's naval
army and the cost, which will be
provided for this year All the
leading powers of the world are
preparing and "hastening to build
ships of war. Argentine will buy
or build two great battle ships,
two large cruisers and six torpedo
boats. Brazil will add four arm-
ored vessels and several torpedo
boats, Chili will add three large
vessels to her navy. In France
$14 000,000Will be voted tor con-
pruction, in England §91.00 ,000,
m Germany $20,000,000, in Italy
,400,000, in Spain $5,500,000, in
Rusia $1,250,000 and even in Bul-
garia $4,000,00-.). Here is a pro-
proposed aggregate expenditure of
about $150,000,000 for new war
ships! And the? naval plans of
China and Japan are not included.
The trouble is that the superior
equipment of one warlike or ag-
gresfcive nation, like France or
England, or Germany, forces all
the others to arm in self-defense.
The rich nations can stand the ex-
pense, but the poorer ones are
burdened only the more in their
desperate efforts to place toem-
selves in a position to repel ag-
gression or resent insult. Wheth-
er they want to indulge in such
costly ornaments, or not, there is
no alternative left but to build
more fighting machines. The Uni-
ted States are more exposed, rich-
er, a greater object of envy to the
older nations, at least, than any of
the New World countries, and yet
we are proceeding more leisurely
and economically than any other
first class power in putting om>
selves in a condition of defense.
Let us hope we will have no oc-
casion soon to regret this leisure
gait, but the indciations point the
other way. A condition of perfect
defense and security is the greatest
guaranty of respect and of peace.

The Texas Exemption Law.
There is no greater incentive to
dishonesty in business methods
than in the ridiculous exemption
laws of Texas. They permit a
resident of a a town or city to own
a lot ox lots to the value of $5000,
regardless of the improvements,
which may be worth $50,000, if he
cares to invest that much, while a
poor widow whom he may owe is
denied the privilege of collecting
a dollar of the money due her by
any legal process. Under the pro-
visions of this law a man may en-
gage in business, obtain credit for
thousands of dollars, then transfer
his money to real estate worth
many times what he is honsstlj'
worth and leave his creditors with-
out relief. Or, if the man prefers
to invest his money in farming
land he may hold 20u acreas which
may and sometimes is worth $1000
an acre, and though he may owe

The Sandwich believes that a
reasonable amount should be ex-
empted from forced sale to every
head of a family, but the law
should not offer a premium on ras-
cality. A better policy would be
to allow each family, whether in a
town or in the country, a home-
stead worth, say, $1000. As the
law now is, while ostensiby in the
interest of the poor man, it offers
the best and safest opportunity for
the man of means to accumulate
wealth dishonestly and then to de-
fy those he has swindled. Texas

Washington, March 20.—The
house to-day, after three days of
.debate, adopted a resolution cen-
suring Thomas F. Bayard, ex-sec-
retary of state and now ambassa-
dor to the court of St James, for
utterances delivered in an address
to the Boston, England, grammar
school, and in an address before
the Edinburgh (Scotland) Philoso-
phical institution last fali. The
vote stood 180.to 71 in favor of
the firs resolution and 191 to 59
in favor of the second. Five Re-
publicans broke away from party
lines- and voted against the resolu-
tion of censure, and six Democrats
voted for it. All the* Republicans
and nine Democrats voted for the
second resolution. Mr. Willis, a
Republican from Mr. Bayard's
State, made a speech in opposition
to the first resolution, and Mr.
Bailey (Dem ) of Texas not ouiy
indorsed the resolution, but de-
clared that a man who delivered
such utterances as Mr. Bayard had
at Boston was ' unworthy to rep-
resent the United States anywhere
at any time." There was a report
about the house after the resolu-
tions had been adopted that Am
