ident spoke in part as follows:
THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH.
. . As a1 nation we have had our full
.share of great men, but the two men
of pre-eminent greatness who, as the
centuries go on, will surely loom above
: all others, are Washington and Lin
coin; and it is particularly fitting that
their birthdays should be celebrated
every year and the meaning of their
lives brought home close to us.
No other city in the country is so
closely identified with Washington's
career as Philadelphia. He served here
in 1775 in. the Continental Congress.
He was. here as commandec of the army
at the time of the battle of Brandy
wine and Germantown; and it was near
here that with that army he faced the
. -desolate winter at Valley Forge, the
winter which marked the turning point
of the Revolutionary war. Here he
came again a? president of the con-
yention which framed the constitution
and then as President of the United
States, and finally as lieutenant general
of the army, after he had retired from
One hundred Ctnd eight years ago
."just before he left the presidency, he
issued his farewell address, and in it
he laid down certain' principles, which
-he believed should guide the citizens
of this republic for all time to come,
bis own words being, "which appear
"to me all-important to the permanency
--of your felicity as a people."
Washington, though in some ways an
- even greater man than Lincoln, did not
Ji have Lincoln's wonderful gift of ex
pression that gift which makes cer
- tain speeches of the rail-splitter from
Illinois, read like the inspired utter
ances of the great Hebrew seers and
prophets. 'But he had all of Lincoln's
-sound common sense, far-sightedness,
and devotion to a lofty ideal. , Like
Lincoln, he sought after them by thor
oughly practical methods. These two
greatest Americans can fairly be called
the best among the great men of the
-world, and greatest among the good
-men of the world. j Each showed in
actual practice his capacity to secure
under our system the priceless union
of individual liberty; with governmental
strength. Each was as free from the
-vices of the tyrant! a3 from the vices
of the demagogue. iTo eacn the empty
futility of the mere doctrinaire was as
alien as the baseness of the merely
self-seeking politician. Each was in
caDable alike of the wickedness which
seeks by "force of arms to wrong others
and of the no less criminal weakness
which fails to provide effectively
against being wronged by others.
Among Washington's maxims which
he bequeathed to his countrymen were
the two following: "Observe good faith'
. and justice toward all nations," and
"To be prepared for war is the most
effective means to promote peace."
These two principles 'taken togetner
should form the basis of our whole for
eign policy. Neither is sufficient taken
hy itself. It' is not merely an idle
dream, but a most mischievous dream,
to belieVa that mere refraining from
wrongdoing will insure tis against being
wronged. Yet, on the other haiid, a
nation prepared for war is a menace to
mankind unless the national purpose
is to treat other nations with good
faith and justice. -

The policeman in a street scrap gen
erally endeavors to make use of his
club as a primary means of defense,
and resorts only to his pistol when it
is absolutely necessary. It frequently
happens that at the moment when the
officer of the law decides that he must
make use of the shooter, he is not al
ways able to get it, being too busy in
warding off the blows of his adver
sary in the little contest which he has
on hand. His pistol under these cir
cumstances is as useless as if it were
miles away, and for the purpose of
answering an emergency of this kind,
a recent invention combines the club

and the pistol in such a manner that
they are both available as the exigen-

The implement consists oli two parts,
the mace and the handle. The latter
is supplied with a hammer mechanism
and with a handle which does well for
either purpose. N Between these two
parts it is possible to fit a cylinder
with cartridge-carrying chambers, so
that an officer desiring to be armed for
any emergency may do so by fitting
and loading the cylinder. Philadelphia

Height of Pygmle.
Among the most interesting ethno
logic exhibitions at the St. Louis
World's Fair was a group of pygmies
from the Wissmann Falls region of
the Congo Free State. Although they
do not look as small as the imagina
tions of many readers of books of
African travel have perhaps pictured
them, yet- they plainly belong to a
diminutive race of mankind. A writer
in Science, comparing the various
measurements of these pygmies, and
others allied to them, arrives at the
conclusion that the average height of
these small men is a little more ihan

It is of white net and is trimmed with
seemingly endless ruffles and ruchings

there's a dainty silver ornament that
looks like lace. Very fascinating is the
coat-like corsage of pink silk. It is em
broidered with silver in the most deli
cate fashion. There are little coat-tails
and there are dainty elbow sleeves,
but there isn't much coat at the front.
It is cut away to show the net and the
little Val. ruffles. There is a chemi
