What we chiefly hear from Maine nowadays pertains to big moose and the output of other game, Interspersed now and then with the story of some hapless hunter who has "been taken for a deer." But the late report of the bureau of statistics In the department of commerce and labor presents Maine in an entirely different light so far as the Industries of the nation are concerned. According to the report of the forest commissioner of Maine there are actually in the forests of that state 21,239,000,000 feet of spruce, not Including a large quantity of cedar, poplar. etc. Mr R. S. Homier of the bureau of forestry informs us that the annual growth of the forests of Maine is sufficient to allow, without any danger of exhausting the forests, the cutting of 637.000,000 feet of spruce annually, while the mills actually do not use up more than 295,000,000 feet. Over 79 percent of the state of Maine, it is to be remembered, is forest. This puts at rest the theory that America is already at the mercy of Canada for raw material. Our own native hills and valleys are the very home of raw material, at least such as is used for wood pulp. But they have opened up paper mills In other parts of the country. So true Is this that the southern states will soon be able to do wrthout northern spruce. Besides this the United States produces various other substances that are capable of being converted Into paper. 1 liE.most delicate, the most sen- sib le of all pleasures consists In promoting the pleasures of Bruyere.

THE most strenuous man that walks the earth today, if we may believe all that we hear, is Michael Ivanovitch Dragomiroff, military adviser of the czar and lion of the Russian people. President Roosevelt is "not in it" with him and Emperor William is a spoiled tenderfoot. He has an unmitigated contempt for Iall these modern theories of war on paper. He believes that war is war war to the knife and by the knife. He cares nothing for all these mod, ern puerile toys such as magazine rifles, quick-firing guns, long-distance shooters and similar new-fangled paraphernalia of He demands the real stuffbrute force, bayonet and butt-end fighting, hand-to-hand contests, and, as a last resort, the teeth and nails.

Ethel Barrymore is 23 years old. a. theatrical star of the first magnitude, a favorite in society, a musician of sorts. an athlete as far as a woman may be athletic without loss of charm, and now she threatens at any moment to break Into print as an author. The girl who is thinking of going on the stage and who is advised that It means much hard work, years of waiting, and Inadequate reward in the end, points triumphantly to the case of Ethel Barrymore, to confute these assertions. True, Miss Barrymore had many things in her favor when she essayed a stage career. Daughter of Maurice and Georgie Drew Barrymore, niece of John Drew, and fifth in descent from a prominent theatrical family, her paths were made smoother than those of most novices, yet success did not come to her in a day. She made her debut when she was 14 and six years was spent in hard and often disheartening work, before she became a star, to which dignity she was elevated by Charles Irohman three years ago. Her position in society is shared by few if any members of the theatrical profession. As a musician she has been much praised by those to whom her talents have been displayed. Love of outdoor sport she cultivates to the greatest possible degreerides horseback. swims, golfs and plays tennis. She has yet to come before the public as an author, but it Is reported that she has very near completion a novel dealing with stage and society people of her acquaintance. A one-act play. which she wruto, was to be performed at the Georgia Cayvan benefit in New York last winter, Miss Barrymore herself playing the leading role. An attack of nervous prostration, which prevented her playing for some weeks, was responsible for this playlet not being produced. PIANO TALKS. The Angelus is the king of piano-players. It is the oldest, the best constructed and the most admirable in its work. And not because we say so, but betcause the facts say so. The Angelus is the only piano-player on the market in which the --alative loudness of the treble and may I be varied at will. I The air pipes in all other piano-players are of rubber.

It was a sort of consolation prize. Chicago News: Any one looking for a good second-hand Zion only slightly the worse for wear possibly could do business on the north shore. Lowell And now a Methodist divine in Boston is to be tried by an ecclesiastical tribunal of the charge of heresy. While this may be a serious offence from a dogmatical standpoint. the average citizen would rather take his chances with Bowne's heresy than with Willard Allen's hypocrisy. An honest heretic is not necessarily the worst foe of the denomination. Providence Journal: That the latest postoffice robbery netted the robbers only a couple of thousand dollars is accounted for by the fact that they were under the disadvantage of having to operate from the outside. Newburyport News: It is eafe to say regarding the latest charge of heresy against a Boston university professor that there is never any good done to religion by a heresy trial. Washington Post: While insisting that we owe Colombia nothing, we will let her have Dovvie, Parkhurst, Devery. Carrie Nation. and a few more characters of that kind if she intends to remain in the business of creating trouble for her citizens and neighbors. Lowell Citizen: Tar macadam used to cost Z2.13 a yard, and it now costs Why this jump? Is it more expensive to lay the pavement. or the wires? Worcester Telegram: The Boston Globe wisely points out that the college debates wil! not draw the crowds the college football games had.

Newport News: The house of lorda says there is no precedent in England for the practice of law by women, and there is no need of establishing a precedent. That's the way to settle it'tis English, y' know. Florida Times-Union: Now that the Cuban senate has approved a bill establishing a state lottery, we may expect to hear a loud wall of anguish go up from that large class of people who open the day's work by piously perusing the stock market reports. Kennebec Journal: Charles S. Ashley, elected mayor of New Bedford Tuesday for his lath term, must hold the record for that line of business.

Chacks Sent by MO Now to Some 599000 Persons, All Applicants Used to Appear in Person, Capt A. J. Hoitt, the pension agent at Boston. began the payment of the quarterly pensions to army and navy veterans yesterday, z.nd before he has concluded he will have sent out some checks and lowered his cash balance nearly $2.000,000. The scene about the federal building Is in striking eontrast)with that of old days, when a large number of pensioners received their tokens of service recognition by the povernment in person. Then corridors and lobbies were fillel with anxious persons, lines were formed extending their serpentine length a dozen rods or more through the building, while recipient had to wait at the.clerk's desk for examination of his voucher, with a hunt for his name to verify correctness. Now everything is done by mail. The checks sent out will be accompanied in each case by' a voucher for the next payment, and these will be returned before March 4. so that when the dav arrives there may be no delay in forwarding money. In the present instance, as always. the books were made up beforehand, and on Thursday night everything was In readiness to begin payment except the reception of vouchers. During the busy days all the 26 clerks will begin work at 8 in the morning and continue until 6 at night. The office will be open for the reception of new certificates and vouchers during these hours. I About 300 payments were made yesterday and 500 or 600 today. By Monday the business will be in such shape that 9000 or 10,000 checks a day can be dis-1 patched. Yesterday's mails brought in about 35.00 vouchers. These were at once put into the hands of clerks for sorting and classification, the whole mass being arranged by consecutive numbers. Then, when any voucher is reached, It can at once be examined and verified, or, to explain more definitely. a number of them can be taken up and compared with the entries by consecutive numbers on a single page, instead of turning half a-dozen leaves for as many vouchers. The latter would be necessary if documents were presented singly and In person. This classification of Friday's receipts will be completed before the office closes tonight, leaving the desks clear for the dispatch of corresponding checks and the assorting of another invoice of vouchers. The system renders the work of the office more easy, better, more exreditious and more economical, while the pensioners receive their money more promptly and without personal trouble. HOT GLOUCESTER HEARING. Claim that Town Landing at Goose Cove, Annisquam, is Being En croached Upon. 5A joint convention of the city council was held last evening. on the petition of Alex Archie, that Dennison Hooper was encroaching on the town landing at Goose cove, Annisquam. Quite a number of interested parties were present. Mr Archie, in opening. asked for the map of the landing which was made in 1854. This the city engineer produced. Mr Archie claimed that the landing had been appropriated, and that he had been deprived of an ancient privilege of landing hay there from Ilam island in the Squam river. In former days, when the main highway ran by Goose cove, the Rockport fishermen utilized the landing. Alderman Glipatrich said that, beyond question, in his memory there was a landing there. An old resident, Mr Dennison. too old to be present at the hearing, had told him yesterday that the place had always been a public landing. After some discussion a motion was made by Carleton H. Parsons that the city solicitor give a synopsis of the situation. The first mention of this landing he stated in 1854. when a plan was made of the public landing at Goose cove, which it Was then stated was unencroached upon. M. J. McNierney appeared for Dennison Hooper, who is charged with encroaching on the landing. Mr Hooper, it was stated, was willing that anyone 'should land providing his right of ownership is not questioned. After a protracted debate a motion to rescind the motion whereby Mr McNierney was allowed to cross-question the petitioners was defeated, and City Solicitor Symonds, who was present, was called in to protect the city's interest. Thomas Kerr, a resident at Goose cove. said Mr Hooper had pointed out the bounds of the lantling 22 years ago. He had set down bounds at the direction of the city engineer and Mr Hooper had pulled them up. David Dennison, the only living descendant of the original owners of the land, sent in a communication stating that the landing was a public landing and should be preserved for the public. Fred Parsons said that James Dennison. a former owner, always denied that the landing was a town landing. Alvah H. Griffin. who recalled events for 40 years, always recollected the use of the landing by the public. The hearing was adjourned until Friday evening. when the matter will be further considered. 441; T. isk, 't 41 0,1 I -1 II1N ,..,4, t': 0 f. '11IF I 1 SIN YOUNG ARTIST. Virginia Thornton Found Dead. Room Full of GasPicture "Despair" on Easel, She Had Worked Hard, but With Little Success. NEW YORK, Dec 3C1ad only In a light robe. the body of Virginia L. Thornton, a beautiful young artist. was found lying on the floor of the bathrpom la her apartments at 22 East st today. Tho door of the bath room was shut fast and a gas jet had been turned on full. In another room the gas was lighted and a gas stove was burning. Olt an easel in the room was a partially finished sketch, which was of a sorrowing woman, and written roughly was, "Defpair." Miss Thornton was 22 years old. and had come to this city from the south. She had gained some little recognition as an but had few friends in the city. She, was very ambitious. She worked early and late, and her rooms were tiled with sketches and paintings. many of wl.ich she had tried in vain to cell. Another tenant in the building noticed the smell of gas and notified the janitor, Ernest Philblatt. He traced the odor to the apartments of Miss Thornton and with the aid of policeman Vose broke open the door and discovered the suicide. Vose hurriedly sent a call to the New York hospital and Dr Reid responded. The young woman's body was still warm and-he worked over her for some time, hoping a spark of life remained. It was useless, however, for she had been dead at least 20 minutes. The coroner was notified and the letters found in her desk will be examined later, in the hope of finding the address of relatives or friends. lier apartments were well furnished and the walls were hung with many beautiful specimens of her skill with tile brush and pen. She hal no friends In the building and kept much to herself and appeared to be Absorbed In her work. She was not seen leaving the building last night, and it is thought she spent the evening at home, reacting or working. No letters written by her were found in tne room. She had occasionally spoken of a brothel in Lexington. the police there have been notified of the girl's death. NORWOOD'S NEW POSTMASTER. Hon Frank A. Pales Will Begin Duties at Once. NORWOOD.

Who ever heard of a genuine drug famine? Yet they say that such a famine actually exists today in some universally used articles. As an example. it is said that cod liver oil is now very scarce. The cod fisheries last spring wore almost a total failure. Many poor people who cannot Stand the rise are in comparative distress because of the depreciation, and the London hospitals for consumption have been obliged to discontinue the supply of cod liver oil in all but a few cases. Some years ago when the mandi was devastating the So.udan and all the surrounding country, there was almost a total cutoff in the supply of gum arable. The famine lasted over a year, and the druggists were placed in awful straits In mixing their medicines. Lord Kitchener finally released them. Be the merits of drugs what they may. there are thousands of good people who feel that they cannot get along without them, and a famine in a favorite specific would be apt to make them sick, if they were not before. The right to be sick is inalienable. THE 1113013WERIE." All such words as bower. Boor. the German ''llauer." a peasant. etc. come from an old Dutch word which means to plant. The famous old one-legged Peter Stuyvesant in the days when New York was young and innocent started a "Bouweric." or farm. on Manhattan island. to be the abode of peace, love and good old Dutch domesticity. That Bouwerle has since become the haunt of tough boys. wayward girls and all varieties of human siftings. As the St Louis fair, the greatest show en earth, is to contain all sorts of hu- man curiosities. we suggest that the good old Bouwerie, as Peter Stuyvesant left it (the old pump still remains), be given a place in the exhibition. Many New Yorkers do not yet know the origin of the name of a street which has become famous the world over. EDITORIAL POINTS. If the submarine boats Adder and Moccasin couldn't go from Newport to Annapolis without getting into trouble. how are the torpedo boats ordered to the Philippines going to get safely over? There are some indications that those two warm friends, Theodore Roosevelt and Lucius Littauer, will not exchange Christmas gifts this year. Now that oil costs so much, will Mr Edward Atkinson kindly discover some inexpensive and effective substitute for kerosene? The Buffalo Times has the right idea. Noting that Mayor Collins has for an opponent a republican named Swallow, it says: "It will be a case of homeward fly the evening of the election." If there were no Inside passage through which the submarine boats could go south, the government would havo some excuse for putting them in jeopardy by sending them out on the Atlantic In December. Senator Tillman says that President Roosevelt has killed the Monroe doctrine. The senator might add that he has substituted the Roosevelt doctrine. Everybody who was on the streets of Boston yesterday knows that openwork stockings now are out of date. Ex-Lieut Gov Jones of New York, who during the past few years has been losing his bight until he is almost totally blind, offers to help any pupils in the public schools of Binghamton whose eyes are affected and who need the attention of an oculist. Jones, he still "pays the freight." All Spanish cabinets look alike to us Americans, now that the cruel YankoSpank war is over. More than 600 clerks employed by We 1-st brokers have been discharged this week because of lack of business. If all the rest of them could be is-charged, the real business of the country would have a fair chance. Why do the people of Nashu-uh all call it Nashu-ay? Daniel J. Sully's estimate of the cotton crop was within 24,000 bales of the government's figures. Mr Sully has shown that he can estimate as well as the government's statisticians, and he has made a good deal more money out of it than they have. Cincinnati Inquirer: Gen rat Collhs has been renominated for mayor of Boston. Collins is one of those delicious democrats who cannot be resisted evan at the Hub. Gov Odell says that he is boss in New York now, and he himself is trying de3- perately to believe it. And now that Christmas is less than three weeks away. the little girl is beginning to wish that she had begun to work that sofa pillow for her mother three or four months ago. Why doesn't New Bedford elect Mayor Ashley In 10-year terms, and so save a lot of bother? The New York artist who left directions in his will that one of his friends should look over his paintings and destroy all the bad ones, evidently picked out the right man. The friend says that all of them are good. Providence Journal: The cab rivers of Boston are now out upon strike. The (Albany, Y. Arius.) Tbe Boston Globe conceived the unique idea of celebrating the anniversary of Gen Chas. B. Taylor's 30 years' management of this famous New England newspaper by a week of jubilee Imes.

Avoid Imitations. i. And yet Dragomiroff is chief instructor of the St Petersburg war academya writer, lecturer, drill master, general and molder of public opinion. He has always advocated the doctrine of brute force versus machine fighting, and he has made the record of one who has fought and 1 bled for his theories in many a sanguinary conflict. He fought in the Russian-Turkish war in bloody lights, which the rest of Europe called brutal. He still longs for the chance to "smash something" in order to demonstrate his theory of war, and says that if given a chance he will fling the Prussians into the Vistula and hurl the Austrians after them by the dead weight of a Russian charge on their flanks. Talk about strenuousness! There are two theories of war. The one argues for what is called "civilized" warfare. Its instruments are machine -guns and other agencies that kill quick." It finds plenty of advocates in church and state, who declare that the more people yoa can kill in a given time the more you humanize war and the more merciful It becomes. But Dragomiroff laughs at all these pleas. Moltke's scholarly wars with the lead pencil are all stuff with him. He wants a chance to show that the theories of war for which the Germans now chiefly stand are all bosh. The other theory of war is that most conspicuously voiced by Dragomiroff. He believes that the proper thing is first to impress upon the Russian soldier the fact that he represents the strongest set of men in the that their dead weight, If only le4 with the proper war motives, would be suffcient to walk over all the artificially drilled Germans and English that could be brought against them. After that he believes in stirring up in the Russian soldier the utmost fanaticism possible. His manifestoes addressed to the army speak of the sacred duty of exterminating the "foreign heretics" and of the rare privilege of giving up one's life "for. the Virgin and the czar." Thus equipped, the rallying cry of the soldier as he goes into the fray is "brute force," and the more of it the better. He is taught to keep fighting at all hazards. The army instructions read that, if all the soldier's weapons are broken, be must then use his fist, his knife and his feet, and, as a last resort, throw himself upon the foe and tear him with his teeth. He is commanded to pay no attention to wounds and hurts in battle, but to press on with an eye solely to victory. The daily drills in Russia are intended to exemplify these tactics, and it frequently happens that officers and soldiers become so excited with the realism of the maneuvers that they fall upon each other in dead earnest. a nere is no savagery, save war itself, like a Russian drill. The reader is at liberty to compare these two theories of war, but he must not imagine that the argument Is all on one aide. War is not play. The only thing that justifies it is the prospect of victory. Dragomiroff, who is an educated man, of splendid strategic knowledge, is greatly opposed to the introduction of rapid-firing guns into the Russian army. He lately insisted before the czar that the magazine rifle is the most dangerous equipment a soldier can be burdened with, for it so lames him that it keeps him from risking an assault and degenerates him into a machine. He also cited the Americans, who, in the Spanish war, defeated the Spaniards with mausers. Dragomiroff's models as soldiers are Charles XII, the "madman of the north," Peter the Great and some others. But his business is war, and he thinks that the rude hordes of the Orient, if properly handled, could put civilization undtT their feet by mere dint of brute force. And he finds plenty of fanatics to swallow his awful theories. c'? II 111111111111
