DEMAND FOR ONE-CENT POSTAE.
Tho growing sentiment In favor of one-cent letter
postage Is one of the signs of the times that will have
to be reckoned with by the lawmakers before long.
It has re ched a stage of greater insistency than has
been noted for any similar reform since tho year or
two Immediately preceding the reduction of the letter
postage rate from three cents to two and if it keeps
on growing In force within tho next y ar or sb as
rapidly as In the recenj past the result Is bound to
bo action by congress along the desired linos before
many sessions have come and gone.
The r.rguments in favor of the reduction are
many and are becoming reasonably familiar to the
public A lar*.' increase in the number of letters
sent through the mails would undoubtedly be an 1m-
u < Mate result of the change in the rate. Tills would
:' far towards balancing tho deficit created by cut-
ting the present rate In half. As a further compen-
sation, however, It Is proposed to raise the rate on all
M o.ind cln s matter, ex. pt newspapers and legiti-
mate magazines, to eight cents a pound. Large in-
«-rouses in postal revenue would be sure t > result from
Iboth the o changer. Hulkly packages of so-called
subscription" periodicals would then pay tho cost of
tlielr carriage, instead of being hauled and- dellevered
at a great loss, as now, and a gr. at impetus would
be given the government business In merchandise
matter by making the mails available for the delivery
of small packages of various sorts at the oight-cont-
a-poun l rate. It Is calculated that the rural routes
could be made to more than pay for themselves,
through their use for such package deliveries. An
actual surplus instead of the present deficit is figured
out with the foregoing changes effected.
One-cent letter pastage would be a boon that Is
well worth looking for, and the companion plans for
making the malls 111 re useful to the ordinary busi-
ness man and householder through their employ-
[ in nt as merchandise conveyers are both feasible
| and desirable.

a way as to entitle him to fi front rank among those
who devise original ways of pronouncing w ids. It
is hard to reproduce phonetically the word that Mr.
Sibley i!sod, but so tar as the alphabet can depict is

accidental, b it evidently deep seated with Mr. Sibley,

One reason why Peruna has found per-
manent use in so many homes is that it
contains no narcotic of any kind. Pe-
runa is perfectly harmless. It can be
used any length of time without acquir-
ing a drug habit. Peruna does not pro-
duce temporary results. It is permanent
in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re-

the Senate adopted in committee of the whole by a
much larger vote than that by which the bill was
finally passed without it, the whole business ought
to be shortly disposed of and th** bill sent to the
President, carrying unconditional statehood for Ok-

This would be the simplest and most satisfactory
solution of this vexatious and irritating business. It
would be the easiest and safest line of retreat for

New York. March 2S.—Prof. Elmer
Gates, the scientist of Washington,
announced today in this city that he
had discovered ultra violet rays of
light of certain wave lengths which
appeared to go far toward solving
some of the fundamental mysteries of
life, death, disease and thought trans-
Living subjects placed in these
strange rays throw a shadow which
exists only so long as there is life in
the subject. When the subject does
it suddenly becomes transparent, and
the shadow vanishes. The new rays
afford, Prof. Gates said, probably the
first and only accurate method of de-
termining if a person is actually dead.
Can Measure Human Thought.
By these rays the innermost pro-
cesses of human thought are revealed.
By simply turning the rays on a per-
son a scientist can measure his
thoughts, can tell if the person is
mor? serious today than he was yes-
terday or if he is thinking harder at
the time of examination than he was
half an hour before.
The wonderful rays placed up n
two persons, sitting side by side, will
reveal which has more mentality than
the other. The rays will also detect
the approach of disease before it
could be discovered by physicians or
surgeons, and so afford a quick and
certain method of finding out If there
is the slightest trace of disease any-
where in the depths of the b.^dy, mere-

"I wis experimenting," said Prof.
Gates, "with invisible light and elec-
