l late years, State debts have
4,363,000 £ bonded
The debt of Tennessee, which, next
to Virginia, suffered most from the
civil war, is now $16,200,000. Twelve
years ago It was $16,000,000, $400,000
more. During this period the popula-
tion of the State has increased a quar-
ter of a million.
Louisiana has a state debt of $10,-
800,000.. Twelve years ago it was
$11,800,000, a reduction of $1,000,000.
New York's present debt, insignifi-
cant when compared With
assets, is $10,000,000, an increase of
$3,500,000 compared with what it was
twelve years ago. This increase is
has no State debt, neither
eat Virginia nor New Jersey, which
owed $1,250,000 twelve years ago.
Illinois, Iowa and Oregon have no
State debts which having matured are
payable, but they have small outstand-
ing obligations which have either not
been presented for payment or. have
not matured. These obligations
amount to $18,000 In the case of Illi-
nois, $10,000 In that of Iowa and $1000
in that of Orewcfn.
Wisconsin owes $2,200,000, Michigan
$400,000, an Inconsiderable sum for
the large state: Indiana $3,800,000
against $8,500,000 In 1800; Vermont
$335,000. California $2,300,000, Con-
necticut $1,700,000, Kansas $580,000,
Missouri $5,600,000, against $8,600,000
twelve years ago; Montana $900,000,
Ohio $450,000, Rhode Island $3,260,0o0
and Maine $2,500,000. ,
The credit- of the American States
is unexcelled, the rates $t which they
can borrow money are low. The need
of publlo improvement buildings and
waterways Is often urgent, and of the
solvency of American States to pay
for these there is no question, but the
policy of all the States is to diminlsjj,,|
not to increase the debts, and collect
ttvely the States have done so and
are doing so. j-

COLLISION WITH A COMET.
Such at Catastrophe
Mean For the Barth.
Although It is exceedingly improba-
ble that the earth may be destroyed by
collision with a comet or some huge
meteor, still the fact that such a con-
tingency is possible is sufficient ground
for discussion on the subject and for
Imagining what tbe result might be,
says the Woman’s Home Companion.
The earth Is moving around the sun
at a velocity of eighteen miles a sec-
ond, while the sun, with all Its attend-
ant planets, is being hurried on toward
tbe great fiery constellation of Hercu-
les at a far greater velocity. The very
fact that small meteors exist proves
the possibility of the existence in space
of meteors of Inconceivable magnitude.
Even great black dead worlds may lie
In our path, like breakers In the path of
a ship. Fifty miles a second Is not an
unusual velocity for heavenly bodies,
and some are known to move at a
speed even in excess of a hundred
miles & second, five hundred times the
speed of a rifle ball. Small meteorites,
which reach the earth at a velocity of
from twenty to thirty miles a .second,
are instantly consumed by the friction
generated with the atmosphere. Large
meteors, however, occasionally I reach
tbe eartl£ escaping destruction from
their size, but are found to have their
surfaces fused from heat generated by
the passage through the atmosphere.
Although It is not probable, still It is
possible, tbat the earth may some time
encounter such a shower of small me-
teors, perhaps In the form of a comet,
that the heat of combustion from fric-
tion with our atmosphere and the poh
sonous gases thereby generated might
destroy all terrestrial life.

Ancient Llghtnlxq Rods.
The ancients did not have lightning
rods constructed as ours are, but they
had lightning conductors, which shows
that they knew how to protect them-
selves from the danger that lies in a
thunderstorm. Even so tong ago as
the tenth century lightning was divert-
ed from fields by planting in them
long sticks or poles,, on top of which
were lance heads. It Is said that tbe
Celtic soldiers used to try to make
themselves safe from the stroke dur-
a storm by lying on the ground
with their naked qworda planted point
upward beside them.
There was long ago on the shore of
the Adriatic aea a stronghold known
as Dunie castle, on the highest tower
of which there was an iron rod that
was used as a means of telling when a
storm was approaching in summer. A
soldier was always stationed near tbe
rod when the aea had a threatening
look, and it was his duty to freqnently
put the iron point of hia javelin dose
to the rod, watching for the spark tbat
would tell him it was time to warn tbe
fishermen by ringing a big bell.
Their Teeth Betray Them.
“There is only one feature of an ac-
tor which will 'give him away* when
disguised in a perfect makeup.” re-
marked a young actor, “and tbat fea-

with all kinds of paint, beard, whisk-
ers and what not, but the teeth will

DELIVERED AN ADDRESS.
Hon. R. C. uDff of Beaumont 8peaks
on Democratic Doctrines.
Last night at the county courthouse
in the presence of a comparatively
small, but nevertheless interested, au-
dience, Hon. R. C. Duff of Beaumont,
Democratic nominee for Representa-
tive in the State Legislature from the
Twenty-second district, delivered a
strong and forceful addrees. The
pleasant-faced man, who, at the July
convention, was nominated for the
place, delivered a talk which held the
people from start to finish, A large
number of ladies were present.
In a few words, Hon. E. A. Cheat-
ham Introduced the speaker. Mr.
Duff. In a full .strong voice, plunged
into his subject at once. He confined
his talk principally to the two great
questions now moving the country*
“Trusts” and “Imperialism”—touching
very brieup on state Issues. His ad-
dress showed keen study and close ac-
quaintance with the subjects In hand.
He advanced some very tangible ar-
guments and brought forth some very
keen comparisons. He called atten-
tion to the present imperial policy of
the Republican party, in sacrificing
the lives of true hearted and patriotic
Americans for the purpose of bolding,
against their will, a foreign and rebel-
lious people, notably the Philippines.
Mr. Duff is a good speaker. Hia
language is well chosen and his enun-
He has a way of pleasing. He holds
the audience from the time he beglnfe
till he finishes his address, and hia
sentiments are characterized by a
thoughtfulness and weight.
. He Is a young man, but is deemed a
shrewd politician and has been In
the political areana, battling for Dem-
ocracy, since he was a youth. During
the last National campaign he played
quite a prominent part to the Texas
field, and contributed much to the
pamphlets of campaign literature. At
the Democratic State Convention held
at Beaumont to Jrily last, his name
was put forward by the Jefferson peo-
ple and he received the nomination.
It was a great compliment to the
young politician, for it was entirely
unsolicited by him.
Mr. Duff to a prominent attorney of
Beaumont of the law firm of F- J. and
R. C. Duff. His firm represents the
eastern roads of the Sant# Fe system,
having moved to Beaumont from . Bra-
zoria county two years ago, when the
gante Fe people acquired the roads
owned by the Kirby company to thto
section. Mr. Duff bsa acquired an en-
viable reputation since moving to
Beaumont, and his firm now has one
of the most extensive general prac-
tices to the Oil Capital-
In his reference to the Imperialis-
tic policy of the Republican adminis-
tration, Mr. Duff advanced some very
strong arguments, and he held hto aa-
dience. But when he alluded
