W. E. Smytha of Ohioago Will Givo a Oonrse of Lectures on Oolouy Life in the West.

It Is expected that Mr. William E. Smythe, the well-known editor of tho Irrigation Age of Chicago, will deliver a course of colonial lectures in Boston and other New England cities next month. These lectures, now being given with great success In the large cities of tho West, pertain to the future of our country rather than the past. In a seriee of four addresses, Mr.

Smythe presents the most Interesting and characteristic features of Industry and society In the new colonial life of the West. These talks are based on careful studies of Institutions throughout Arid America. The Mormon communities of Utah, the colony founded by Horace Greeley In Colorado, and the pioneer settlements of Southern California, furnish the most valuable material. This course is intended to he a series of popular talks to the people about the opportunities of the new and greater West While they are especially designed to In- trest and benefit homeseekers, regardless of the particular place they may have In view the lecturer deals with the matter in a wav that should Interest all who realike the importance of the broad national and human questions Involved In ugly tricks, teasing children, torturing the conquest of Arid America.

The Russians are always seen, even In tho hottest weather, with a thick cloth of dark hue twisted about their heads. In New Guinea the young woman lets her hair hang about her shoulders, but when she Is married this Is cut short. Chinese matrons braid their hair like a helmet.

In Wadal the wives color their lips by tattooing them with the thorns of the acacia, then rubbing with Iron filings. In parts of Africa the married women perforate the outer edges of their ears and lips and stick rows of grass stalks In them, and among a certain Mongolian tribe, the Manthes, the women wear suspended from the ear a little basket full of cotton, to which a spindle Is attached. The universal American wears what she likes, regardless whether It be matronly or not, aha the daughters will select articles suitable only to married women. NEW FORM OF BLOOD POISONING.

Ford, the elephantine and millionaire humorist, has not been turned by the success of his latest book, ol'though In the case of a less modest man It surely would be. Mr. Ford has returned from his cruise In the Mediterranean brighter and better than ever In his Herculean way. He was decorated by the khedive twlfii the order of the Oescent and DECORATION. Ibu, a literary prize In Egypt.

Mr. Ford attrlbuutes his success as a humorist to the novel theory which ho propounded In London a year ago, and which the Prince of Wales laughed at so heartily. This theory Is based upon the curios fact, first noticed by Mr. Ford, that man has long believed himself alone In being endowed with a sense of humor. But latterly a sense of humor has been detected In animals, and Mr.

Ford argues that as man is made in the Image of his maker. It follows that the deity must have a sense of humor, too. This divine humor is, of course, infinitely more sublime than anything we poor mortals have any conception of. Mr. Ford explains the phenomenon of the universe by contending that it is all a piece of humor on the part of the creator who made the and moon and the stars as a sort of heavenly Joke, Hence the prevalence of the comic element throughout the cosmos.

Mr. Ford Is at work on still another book. SCHEME OF POILCB FEDERATION. Thomas Byrnes will be back la New York very shortly, but In the meantime It may be taken for granted that the attempt to connect him with a gara- 'bling establlshnlent run under his protection when he was In the police department will fall miserably. Byrnes has now on his hands one of the greatest police schemes ever heard of.

It is planned principally in the Interest of hankers all over the world, who are now very much at the mercy of designing people everywhere. The idea which Byrnes now has Is to do away entirely with the slip-shod methods of International arrest, and to unite the heads of the detective police of the world Into a federated alliance.

The Ohio election seems to have given a quietus to his political ambitions. He has a very ambitious wife. In whose hands ho is declared to be a mere Jumplng- jack. Great as his power was over the machine. It is nothing to his power over him.

Mrs. Bribe has been a brilliant success In New York society. Her entertainments have been attended by the cream of New HOW IT WORKS. aristocracy, and the glory she has won is a new to many ambitious women longing to get within the charmed circle. The Senator long held aloof from these aspirations of his wife, but now it appears that he will attempt to find consolation for.

defeat In the gay diversions of the exclusive. Brice is well calculated to succeed in this direction. His address and personality are Impressive, and he can make himself very fascinating when necessary. He is now estimated to be worth between $5,000,000 and $10,000,000, and that Is a very good equipment with which to begin a social campaign. His son Is novf recognized In New York as the very gayest of the gay young men about town.

In short, the Brices are In the swim and mean to stay there. DAVID WECHSLER. ORIGIN OF A FAM0U3 PHRASE. In a letter to tho Star, of Sept. 14, headed Own Words." correspondent points out that words, of the people, by the people, for the people," In the famous Gettysburg address, were not original with Lincoln.

He attempts to further show that they were original with Hfenry and were quoted by Lincoln from a letter written In 1860 by Wilson to certain persons In Boston. In a speech delivered at the New England anti-slavery convention, Boston. May 29, 1850, by Theodore Parker, may be found the expression government for all the people, by all the people, for all the the exact language, with the exception of one word, of that ascribed to ami employed by Lincoln. But still further baoK. bad the same Idea been expressed in substaattally the same way by Daniel Webster hr one of His most splendid oratorical afforte.

whose every phrase wa-s familiar to all patriotic Americans long before Parker uttered his speech or Wilson wrote his letter. In his second speech on resolution, Jan. 26, 1830, Webster u-sed these words: government, made for the people, made by the people and an.swerable to the The phrase discussed belongs no more to "Wilson than to Lincoln. The words can no be said to have been by Lincoln from Wilson than fiom Parker or Webster. Lincoln was familiar with the writings and of Parker; he had probably never seen this particular letter of Wilson.

That language should bq exactly tho same as that of the latter was a coincidence, but probably nothing more. The phrasie was merqly the expression, In the simplest, most direct language, of the glorious yet popular and familiar Idea of the constitution and object of our form of government. The expression cannot be ascribed to any one map. Lincoln does not give tho statement as a positive a new coined phrase intended to add to his as a public speaker, but use.s the words nn descriptive of our government in uttering the resolve that it "shall not perish from the That some words of the speech had been said before does not detract from the beauty or grandeur of address as a whole.
