?- /~3. A RUSH lO THE ALTAR Teachers for Philippines Greafly Embarrass Uncle Sam. Washington, Aug. 8.?The rush la the nuptial altar and the rush far the Spanish grammar are two of the distinctive feature* of the wholesale appointment of teach ers for the Philippines as devel oped by the correspondence lie tween the appointees and the Insular Division of the War De partment. Thenumberof talent ed youngcollege graduates whose first act after receiving their ap pointments was to enter the matrimonial state and forward to the department requests for transportation for wives was al most appalling. The accommodations on board the transports were strained to their capacity when thepassenger -list of teachers alone were made up. Ingeniously worded letters began to come in, however, di rectly after the appointments were sent out, the newly made teachers set,ting forth that in view of their expected long ab sence ui a foreiga country they had concluded to marry the young women to whom they were engaged, and desired to have their wives accompany them to their new posts. The regulation in this regard is that the person directly dependent upon the teacher may he furnished pass age upon the transport only if practicable. In Spite of thestraits to which this new condition re duced the service, none of the brides was left at home or com jM'lIed to cross the Pacific 011 other than a Government vessel. Nearly every appointee wrote to Col. Clarence 11. Kdwards, chief of the Insular bureau, to ask If a knowledge of the Spanish language was imperative as a qualification for a teacher in the Philippines. All were informed, that it was desirable, but not ab solutely a necessary requisite. The ambition of the teachers has led them to engage most indus triously in the study of the lan f uags, however, and reports from lonoiulu state that one trans port loaded with teachers sailed into that port en route to Manila with notices posted in every cabin to the effect that conversation in "Spanish except upon the forward deck would be regarded as mutiny and punished with confinement in tbfi ship's brig. Prof. Kdrqund 11. Ilriggs, of the Catholic Pniverslty of America, has been appointed a division I superintendent of schools in the Philippines, and, togt ther with six or eight teachers, will sail from New York for Manila by the Sue* canal route 011 Saturday next*, Augm* 10. Two other divisional superintendents and n Targe number of teachers will sail' from San Francisco about Sep tember 1st.

The Philosophy ot Simon Prost. < When v? hear a feller rattlin' somethin' in his pocket ye can't tell but it may only lie nails. A busy man ain't got no time to be afoolin' with other folks' (loin's. Maybe a rollin' stone don't gather no moss, but one thet sta3Ts still soon gits covered up. ft pays to t?e hard o' hearin' sometimes. There's some folks thet work harder a-tryin' to git out o' workin' than they'd hev to ef they done the worK itself. The hottest fire don't always make the most smoke. Diplomacy's only a polite way o' tellin' a lie so's the ether teller won't dare not to believe it. It's best, gen'rally, to take ev'rything ye kin git, except chances. Broken promises hev caused more men to fall than broken ladders. Success is gittin' to the place ye start oat. fer. It's better to fight an'git licked in a good cause than to fight an' win in a bad 1111. \ man's tongue's harder to ' hold than the friskiest pair o' horses that ever come down the road. The longest way round ain't always the shortest way home. The feller that takes the short cut gits there first. A man's a patriot when he wins ' an' a rebel when he loses. I Nobody's useless in the world; some uv 'em was put in it jest so's to show the rest what they ] hadn't oughter be. Money ain't worth nothin' ex- j | cept what it'll buy. Onet in a wfdle the best o' men } \ feels like bein' a barbarian jest 1 fer a few minits. There's two kind o' vices, an' | both o' 'em pinches hard when | ye git ketehed m 'em. r It's a wise politician that kin t make his own tools. [ i The feller thet says he kin read men like he kin a book often loses ! his place. When ye can't see nothin' but . the bad part o' somethin' it's better to look somewhere else. It's a misfortune to some folks | to hev a fortune left 'ein. When a feller tries to git some thin', an' then don't git it, he most always thinks he's been : swindled. A watched pot may not boil, j but lookin' at the clock won't never stop it frum tickin' off the minits, jest the same.?Philadel phia Record.

The appointment of Real-Ad miral Howison will be aflreptabk' to Rear-Admiral W. S. Schley, and is regarded favorably in the navy. His name was in a list submitted by Schley's counsel from which se.lection could be made that would be agrwable to him.
