Germany Mai Buy Americas War
Washihqtos, D. C March 5. When
Prince Henry of Prussia makes his In
spection of Cramps' Shipyard durtog his
visit to Philadelphia, next Monday, he
will go aboard the Russia battleship
Retvlzan, now building at the yards, and
make a careful examination of the great
vessel. This he will do by special re
quest of the Cxar.
It Is suggested here that the Prince's
examination of the Retvlzan may be the
means of Inducing his brother, the Em
peror, to have a German battleship con
structed in the United "States aaa sub
stantial token of his admiration for
American skill in navaj architecture, and
In order to still farther cement the grow
lng friendship between the United States
At the launching of the Emperor's
yacht In Hew" York Prince Henry re
ferred to the fact that it was the first
occasion on which a President of the
United States had been on board a Ger
man naval essel. The President re
plied that he hoped to be In the future
the guest of Admiral Prince Henry on a
German war ship, and for the Emperor
to place an order with an American firm
for a war vessel would perhaps give the
President the opportunity. '
Should a German war vessel be built
In this Country In the near future it is
believed the Emperor would attend the
launching. ' '

card on the wall that reads, "Always
Stat the value of your shipment" f
If I state the value, will your com
pany pay me that amount in case the
package le lostr asked the man In hla
"Certainly not. nnlesa that is proved
to be Us value," answered the agent
"If I state the value, can I prove a
greater value If it Is lostT" i
Ton wtU have to nsk a lawyer tnai
question," replied the agent
That isn't necessary, for I happen to
know the law," said the shipper. "Tour
company Is trying to establish an un
fair rule, because It worKB only one
way. You are right when you say that
my statement cannot bind you, for In
case of loss you can prove the value,
but my statement would bind me, lor
the court would say that I was 'estop
ped by my declaration as to the value.
"If a shipper should undervalue his
shipment, thinking that thereby he
would reduce the charges, he would
have to stand by Ms statement, and
your notice is calculated to make him
do that very thing. Xou can mark my
shipment 'No value Btated,' and then if
we meet in the courts It will be on an
equal footing.'' New York Herald. ;

How many miles a man walks In hla
lifetime depends naturally upon how;
much he walks a day on the average,
but the man who walks the least, cov
ers a vast numner oi mues oeiore ue
dies. Borne men walk two miles a day,
aome four or five and some as many as
ten. If a man walks two miles a day
and Uvea to be thirty yeara old, he will
cover 21,000 miles. At the same age a
man who walks three miles a aay will
have walked 82,850 'miles. Almost ev
ery man walks between two nd three
miles a day Just la going about the
house, the office, the shop and in going
to and from tha cars, etc.
A man who walks five miles a day
finds that at the age of thirty he has
covered 54,750 miles and at the age ot
sixty 100,500. From this should, strict
ly ipeaklng, be subtracted the few.
months or a year when he was a baby
unable to walk, but the result would
not be affected materially. -
Now, the circumference of the earth

therefore a man who at the age of alx

ho waa able to walk has walked
enough miles to have encircled the
