Buskin's Little Wants.
Indeed, I rather want good wishos just
now, for I am tormented by what I can-
not get said, nor done, writes John Rus-
kin In a letter to Charles Eliot Norton,
published In the Atlantic. I want to
get all the Tltians, Tlntoretti, Paul Ver-
oneses. Turners, and Sir Joshuas—Id
Jie world—Into one great fireproof
Gothic gallery of marble and serpentine.
I want to get them all perfectly engraved.
I want to go and draw all the subjects
of Turner's 19,000 sketches in Switzer-
land and Italy, elaborated by myself.
I want to get wry body a dinner -who
hasn't got one. I want to macadamize
'omc new roads to Heaven with broken
| !ools' heads; I want to hang up some
knaves out of the way—not that I've any
illsllke to them, but I think it would bo
wholesome for them, and for other
people, and that they would make good
crow's meat. I want to play all day long
and arrange my cabinet of minerals
with new white wool: I want somebody
to amuse me when I'm tired; I want
Turner's pictures not to fade; I want to
be able to draw clouds, and to under-
stand how they go—and I can't make
them stand still, nor understand them—
they all go sideways (what a
fellow that Aristophanes was—and yet
to be always in the wrong in the main,
except in his love for Aeschylus and the
country—Did ever a worthy man do so
much mischief "on the face of the
Earth?). Farther, I want to make the
Italians Industrious, the Americans
Quiet, the Swiss romantic, and Roman
Catholics rational, and the English par-
liament honest—and I can't do anything
and don't understand what I was born
for. I get melancholy—overeat myself,
oversleep myself—get pains in the back
—don't know what to do in anywise.
What with that Infernal Invention of
steam, and gunpowder—I think the fools
may be a puff or barrel or two too many
for us. Nevertheless, the gunpowder
has been doing some work in China and
"Aliens" and Jews.
There is a curious reluctance to admit,
on the part of those who advocate the
bill now under consideration In parlia-
ment for restricting immigration, that
it has any religious or ethical signif-
icance, says the New York Times. Those
who oppose it declare that it is of an
anti-Semitic origin; those who favor it
vehemently deny this. The fact seems
to be that while the evils of "sweating"
and overcrowding and so forth against
which the bill is aimed are of no nation-
ality or religion, it is the Jewish Immi-
gration to England in which they are
most conspicuous. It seems rather odd
to deny that a measure is "aimed at"
the only class which it would hit In
this country these evils are not confined
to any one class of immigrants. If the
"sweating" is done largely at the ex-
pense of Jews, overcrowding is quite as
noticeable and dangerous among, for ex-
ample, the Italians.
Mr. Israel Zangwill, the novelist, has
a pretty fair case against Mr. Balfour
when he accuses him of "not knowing
what is going on" in denying that what
the novelist calls "the anti-Jewish epi-
demic" has taken possession of Eng-
land. Mr. Zangwill cites the Jewbait-
ing in Wales, Jew boycotting in Ireland
and anti-Semitic pamphleteering in
Scotland as proof of the contagion, and
Intimates, doubtless with truth, that the
persons guilty of these offenses are in
favor of the aliens bill.
A Cause of Anxiety.
It seems to us that the proof of the
capacity of the Japanese to defeat
European troops given on the Yalu
may involve hereafter very serious
consequences, even though the first
consequence, which all Europe begins
to perceive, should not Immediately
follow. Bays the London Spectator.
The restlessness of China Is becoming
marked, and if the war party theie,
which grounds its hopes on the sue
cess of Japan, should suddenly become
active and supreme every suggestion
of caution we have advanced will be
Invested with a new gravity. The Chi-
nese population, guided or controlled
by men of the caliber of those who
have won the battles on the Yalu, will
represent a mass of power over which
the statesmen of Europe—and we may
include America—may yet have to pon-
der with deep anxiety. It is a cause
of anxiety that we, who admire both
the skill and daring of the Japanese,
but who cannot forget that Europe
ind Asia have not precisely the same
Interests, cannot help regarding the
battles on the Yalu.
Oscar Straus proposes that navies
shall be insured. It Is a daring
scheme, and we should be sorry for
the company that had banked upon the
Russian ships in the present trouble,
but the company that would Insure
the Russian ships being hit would reap

TESTIMONY OF A MINISTER.
Rev. Jno. S. Cox, of Wake, Ark.,
writes: "For 12 years I suffered from
Yellow Jaundice. I consulted a number
of physicians and tried all sorts of medi-
cines, but got no relief. Then I began
the use of Electric Bitters and feel that I
am now cured of a disease that had me
in its grasp for 12 years." If you want a
reliable medicine for liver and kidney
trouble, stomach disorder or general de-
bility, get Electric BilteM. It's guaran-
teed by Owl & Crescent drug stores. 10
