The mailer nation is said to rely on form ng an alliance with Salvador, Honduras aod Nicaragua. This alliance ,f Central American nations could place one hundred thousand men ID he field against Mexico. There ia doubt, however, that Guatemala can uII!cleotly interest the other Central Vmoricaa nations in her boundary dispute with Mexico, to plunge them nto war.

Accept None of the Pretended Substitutes ~ - . Baking Powder B ECAUSE inferior and cheaper made baking preparations are sold at wholesale at a price so much lower than ROYAL, some grocers are urging consumers to buy them in place of the ROYAL at the same retail price. If you desire to'try any of the pretended substitutes for ROYAL BAKING POWDER bear in mind that they are all made from cheaper and inferior ingredients, and are not so great in leavening strength nor of equal money value. Pay the price of the ROYAL BAKING POWDER for the ROYAL only. It is still more important, however, that ROYAL BAKING POWDER is purer and more wholesome and makes better, finer, and more healthful food than any other baking powder or preparation.

I was present at a pretty performance during- my last summer's outingr ia Vermont, said the contemplative angler to the Now York Sun. I had pulled out upon Grotou pond one evening at sundown to try for some fish: My skiff drifted against the shore and , absorbed in the twilight beauties of the water sheet and its wooded borders, I let tho oars lie idle and ceased to cast my line. At fall of dark-ness there came from a tree above my head tho clear call of a whip-poor-will, concealed by tho foliage and darkness. This call was followed- by another from tho same quarter—a weaker note which stopped half finished. Again there arose the full clour call that had first sounded, and again there came the unfinished whip-poo oi r u bird evidently attempting- to sing in imitation. Tt was a whip-poor-will teaching- her young their sou?. Carefully locating- the sound, 1 :it last could discern through the dusk, in dim outline, the mother whip-poor-will perched upon a high limb with a young bird upon each side of her. Aga'm and "K :l '» lll ° u>s ' son was rehearsed, the 1 fledglings paining in confidence and proficiency at, each new trial. 1 «it listening a half hour to this charming rehearsal, but at last the. youusters seemed to grow weary, their notes became reiuetant and 'querulous, and after some low chirping conversation in whip-poor-will language, a little rustle and flutter announced that the lesson was concluded, and the voting ones were sent to bed, \11 was silent for a few minutes. Then the mother bird flew across au inlet of the pond in pursuit no doubt of insects for her after-concert supper. INDUSTRIOUS JAPAN.

Comparatively few of the products were seut from America. Great Britain manages to control the greater part of the market there. _ Americans have created a stir m Japan, though, by the establishment of a watch factory. This big concern was described in detail ir.. a recent letter from Frank G. Carpenter, the press correspondent. Japan imported 10.;,.-,, watches in ISO." and SU,:5l;5 in 18-.V2. I he value of the watches imported in ISJJ was about ?2Ul.nOO. Americans arc after this trade, most of which has gone to the Swiss. Cf tho 103,7-17. watches imported in ISD!',, 80,713 came from Switzerland, France sent 10..-W, Germany 3,00-1, and the United States •?G')4 Great Britain sent but 001. i no Swiss consul thinks that Swiss watchmakers have nothing to fear from the encroachments of the Americans. 1 heir object, he says, is to manufacture cheap watches Lie thinks thai tho Japanese do not want cheap American watches or thev would have bought thorn long a^o instead of paying more money for the expensive Swiss article. Ihe Americans own one-half the stock m tho new factory and make no secret of the fact that they are or. the ground to take advantage of tho remarkably chc-ip labor of that country, lac American rolled-gold or fillcd-gold case is oopular in Japan. Nearly =.00 of them were imported 1.;,- thai, conn try in IS'JX , , Japan imports goods to the value of about $700.000 more ihtm she exports. Her principal articles of export arc rice. tea and silks. In IS'JB the exports ol tea to the United Stales fell off nearly one-third.. The United Stales is Japan s_ best- customer in Uic pimrliase of teas. 1-rices of tea in Japan fell so much ,h:it many Janaiicsc tea raisers have t.urneu th»ii- attention to raising barley ana other cc reals. The production of rice rcpr^c-i.ts one-half the total agricultural product of the country. Japan exports some cigarettes l;o Europe lie T'ipancse cigarettes arc very much like the American. In fact they are using American machinery in some Japanese cigarette factories. The United States i:> Japans chief market for silks, and th.c crisis here in 1S03 played havoc with the silk industry there. America bought so little silk that, the market was terribly unsettled, and finally American buyers withdrew entirely. . This action completely demoralized the industry, and. although in ISO-) our buyers went Kiel: to Japan for silks, the industry has not yet recovered. • . The cotton industry of Japan is of more interest to Americans than any other in 'the empire. Mr. Carpenter pointed out m one of his letters a few wceks.ago that Japan was in a fair way to become our rival in cotton manufacture His predictions are substantiated by some of Vice Consul Putters figures. The progress within the last four or five- years is astonishing, In'lSST there were twenty-four mills in operation, with 130,000 spindles. In 1S03 the mills increased to forty-three, with a total of 3S5,2C5 spindles. Manual labor is so appallingly cheap in Japan that, cotton spinners can meet all outside competition, even that of Inaia. So rapid has been the growth of this industry that where in .1SSS Japan produced but 030,804 pounds of manufactured cotton and imported 47.430.039 pounds, in 1S02 the empire produced 64,046.025 pounds, while the cotton imports fril to 24,308,491 pounds, or nearly one-half. This shows astonishing progress. America may well fear Japan as a competitor in the markets o,f the IT WAS A MALE MOUSE. Tin- So* or :in Iiitrn<l«:r nt the Oirl llach- olorn' Club t'lriirly Eittiibllslicd. It was the regular monthly meeting of the Murray HillGirl Bachelors'club. Miss Sophia Oeengoggs had read her able paper on -Man a.s a Failure, \\ith a Great Uig R" Miss 1'aSse had recited an original poem entitled "Waiting"—not an old maid's confession, by an"' means, but the autobiography^! a female waiting at the seaside. Then followed a Coaching song by .Miss llio-hsee, entitled. "She lla.l to Darn lie" Own Silk Hose, Because Her Husband Wouldn't." After this came a debate: "In Russian tea should it be four lingers of gin to one of tea. or vice versa?" Then came a thesis by a Kos'.on poetesSiCnliUed "Man as Roman's stepping Stone to Higher Things." Then it was moved and secomled that the sergoant-at-arms expel and forever after exclude from the sacred precincts of the club everything male, even to "LJiiUons" and the tomcat Felix. It was then resolved that woman was the only true inheritor to the privileges of the earth and that man had stolen her birthrignt. I hat Kite alone was at once the wisest, most diplomatic and heroic of all the creatures of the mundane sphere, the only undaunted and true heroine _in all exigencies aud emergencies of life. The resolution .would have been lin- ishcd and carried with overwhelming eclat had not at this very moment the president paused in the recitation, turned a deadly pallor and, shrieking, mounted a chair. Confusion reigned, four of the heroines fainted, nineteen others mounted tables and convenient furniture, while two climbed up the chandelier, just as a wee little mouse scampered across the floor. Instantly the sergeant-at-arms four shed a small poker above her hoi.d and w.th that the little mouse made a bee'iine for the nearest hole. After quiet was restored the president put the following resolution: -Resolved. That the reason the honorable body arose in such consternation with the advent of a mouse in the sacred precincts of this castle of feminity was not because it was, a mouse, but because that mouse was ol the opprobrious sex which this estima ble body has sworn to repudiate one., and forever." •lint how do you know it was a man mouse?" inquired one of the more courageous of the council. "Because tie had whiskers?" "Xo." replied the learned president. -I knew it, must be a male mouse because it was proved here that in his game with woman it only takes a little poker to put him in a hole." There was a dead silence for ten sec oncls and then the samovar exploded.— X. V. World. ' IMAGINATION AIDS SURGERY. Hew u Woninii Wiis Curi'il or tJimoiK" Which UI<1 >"'"• EJii!.t- Ima-ination is not to be sneezed at. said a prominent surgeon the other day as his eyes followed the brisk movements of a middle-aged woman who was passing. Three years ago that woman came to one of the hospitals of the city and en-a-ed a private room. She drove to the institution in a carriage and %yas carried to her bed on a stretcher. She insisted that one of her ankles was helpless and that she could not walk. The house surgeon made an examination and could not discover that she had the slightest ailment. The next dav the head surgeon looked her over carefully and came to the same conclusion. What is more, being a somewhat brusque and outspoken person, he said as much to her. At this she was very indignant and insisted upon keeping-" her bed. No amount of persuasion could induce her to make any effort to walk, and she insisted that her ankle was helpless and so sensitive that the slightest touch of her foot to the ground can'sed her the most acute do anythiliR 1 for herself fruitless, the snrn-icalstalYhcld a consultation, and determined to humor her. Consequently the following day the woman was told that she was pilfering- from u serious ailment, and preparations for an operation were made with a jrreat pa- i-idc ot nurses, instrnments and the like. The p«.i,ioi«. v.-as then placed under the influence of an anesthetic and a slight incision was made over .he ankle joint. This" was merely superficial, althon-'ii it was several indies in leiurlh. H. was i.nmcdKitel.v sewed up. carefully handa-ed and the p-itiont removed to ' her bed, where she found herself when she recovered consciousness. After this she was sub- -cctcd to the same care that would be J -iven to the most serious cases for t.wo weeks. The wound was dressed daily: the patient was enjoined to remain in position and her diet was c:m-fn.- lv proscribed. At. the end of this Him: UK- bandaR-es were removed, tile stitches taken out, and a few days 1-iter the woman walked nut of tlic hospital as well as you see her,to-day. Thi'-e ha.< never been the slightest t l,i n ,f Uic matter with h.-r. but she thou-hl there wns and the preien. ed operation satisfied liur.-K'X-hesler (-N. V.) Jlumoerat.
