Officers of our quadron were feted and lionized as few visiting European naval men have been n the Unit-id Kingdom. Captain Mahan the Chicago found that the British cnew more about his book, "Influence of Sea Power Upon History,.^' than his own fellow countrymen did, and the Jniversity of Oxford bestowed on him ho degree of D. C. L. Tho Prince of Wales has undoubtedly done much to fostor friendship between ugland aud the United States by his courteous kindness to George <5ould. Sporting events in which they are mutually interested mellow the hearts of men and nations toward one another. and doubtless Wales understands this 'ully in his shrewd, quiet fashion. The time may coraowheu Great Britain and the United States will need to stand together against influences that threaten ;o disintegrate civilization. Foolish Braggadocio utterances that tend to set the two great English speaking nations against oaoh other shoulc] be frowned ou, whether they are uttcrauueg of newspapers or individuals.

Between tho war with Japan nnd the IciTiblo epidemic which is devastating her borders Cliina appears to bo in a fair way to-got virtof a tow hundred thousand of her surplus population. Iu Canton alono nearly 100,000 persons have died from tho plague since March I, In Hongkong, with a population of '300, • 000, tho diHoiiso appeared iu March. By the 1st of June the deaths had reached over 50 u day. The mortality there ia something like 10,000. These are only two of the Chinese cities. They are the ones in which tho disease has been most .severe, but beyond doubt it has raged with fury iu do'/.ens of places whoro no death list was kept. The attempt has been made by tho Chinese toooiioeul the full extent of tlio ravages. Tho disease is identical with the black or groat plague of London iu 1005. London learned a lesson from that awful chapter in its history,which nevor needed to bo repeated. It was the lesson in sanitation that; it seems impossible for oriental countries to comprehend. Tlio black plague is characterized by fovor. It is culled bubonic (over because of the bubooH- or awolliuga that appear In tho largo glands where there is friction caused by parts of the body rubbing together. Those glands finally break like an nicer.

The passionate loyalty v of the Japaueso for their emperor shows thai his progressive course is appreciated by his people. The czar of Russia might take a lesson from the emperor of Japan which would be to his advantage, Of his own free will Mutsn-Hito gave his people a parliament and a constitution. Russia calls herself a civilized country, yet not all the pressure brought to bear by their subjects for a centwty has been able to make the czars grant a constitution and parliament to the great northern empire. Japan ! is more civilifced than Russia. The spirit of her progressive and ambitious people is shown in the way they responded to the i emperor's call , for a loan. For awhile, just how long no man can tell, 1,373 passengers Will hate 'it to say that they came across the Atlnri tic in the quickest ; 'time eve? made 'fc any steamer.' It has been prophesied for J some years 'that maiiy people' now liV-J 1 iug would' see the ocean ordssed in four days. The Cnnard steamer Campania's time— 5 days, 9 hours and 2 1 minutes^looks as"if the prophecy Would come true sooner eveib' than- the' seers expected. v The Cartipauiit averaged 515.8 miles a day: The bamier for the fastest ship has 'now goine from the American line to the Cnnard line. It is ihteresting io note how the steamers seem to bo gradually cutting- down the difference in time between them and the railroads. - P m The popular Japanese cry is said to bei-"\Ve'U,rallyrbnnd'the inikado:" Of course one does not know tho Jap for "rally round;" bu'tj unless it" is very different from the English of it, it will not make any sort of rhythm with; "mi- kado." The Japs could not sing it to our tune of "Rally Round the Flag." ,and give-their emperor's name its proper accent on the second syllable. They would have to sing, "We'll rally round the mickydco."

It is .that the only country which either'' Japan, China or Korea trusts implicitly Is the United States, We alone have uo ax to grind on any of them. Walter W llman got far enough to sprinkle new shores plentifully with the names of American politicians auy- how. China's naval policy seems to be to hide her ships away iu a safe place. Professor Ramsay and Lord Rayleigh, two members of tho British association, believe they have-discovered a new chemical element It is found where it would have been least suspected—in common air—of which tho discoverers claim' that it forms 1 per cent. They first suspected its existence from the fact that uitrogou obtained from tho atmosphere wits different from nitrogen got anywhere else. They took some atmospheric nitrogen and added to it magnesium, which absorbs nitrogen. After tho absorption hud taken place a residue remained. It was a'dense, sluggish gal 3 T times heavier than hydrogen and twice as heavy as nitrogen. They submitted it to tho final analysis of tha spectroscope aud found its spectrum different from that of nitrogen by the presence of a single intensely blue lino.
