ABLE MAN RULES COLOMBIA. ,wn-H A VAUJE AB0VE RUBIES
Prospect of Development of Naturally
Rich Country If He Remain*
"I was in Venezuela and Colombia
in 1907," said J. C. Howell of New
York. "President Reyes of Colom-
bia had been in power a couple of
years when I was in Bogota, and
already the country was fast getting
straightened out of the revolutionary
kinks that he found it in when he
seized the presidency in 1905.
"Reyes is an extraordinary man.
There is not a better executive or an
abler statesman, or soldier in the
whole of South America. The Co-
lombians are a contentious lot, nuJ
it required the severest measures on
the part of Reyes when he took the
presidency to establish safety and
order in the republic. I think he
* will return from Paris,* as from
what I know of the man it is in-
comprehensible to me that he would
ever run away from anything.
"It is not generally known in tins
"country that Colombia is almost as
large as the whole of our middle
west. It is an immense country, and
is full of limitless opportunities of
"As an illustration of what kind
of a man Reye6 is, when I was in
Bogota in 1907 -he had the whole
Colomhian army, generals and pri-
vates, working on all kind3 of pub-
lic improvements, especially raids,
throughout the country."
8hakespeare AND THE BIBLE.
Whatever ex-President Eliot of
Harvard may have meant when he
explained to a Times correspondent
that the Bible and Shakepeare were
omitted from his five feet of estim-
able books because everybody has
read them, he certainly did not
mean just that.
Obviously, neither Shakespeare
nor the Bible has been read by
everybody. What a worldful of cul-
ture we should have if everybody of
reasonable mature years had read
and inwardly digested those two
founts of uplifting thought, pro-
found wisdom and pure English.
All that Dr. Eliot means is that the
Bible, and Shakespeare do not stand
in need of recommendation. Nearly
everybody knows he ought to read
them. But the proportion of men
end women who ever read the books
''P they laiow they ought to read is

Texai Writer's Deserved Tribute to
the Divinity That Worthily
Rules the Kitchen.
A girl with one dimple and 400
freckles is a cinch if she possesses
a sweet disposition and a knowledge
of domestic science. As homely as
6he may be to the unthinking world,
she becomes glorified when she dons
the gingham apron and goes into a
shining kitchen and pulls from the
singing range the well-made bread,
the majestic pies and the sublime
potlicker. In the eyes of her en-
tranced husband she outglitters the
Queen of Sheba and her children
rise up and called her blessed three
times a day and several times be-
When the bread is perfectly baked,
the coffee strong and hot, the steak
juicy and fragrant, the hash well
built and appetizing and the batter-
cakes light and smoking as the melt-
lTTg butter is absorbed, the spirit of
the Lord descends upon that house-
hold like a dove and the caverns of
the lucky man's soul echo with
"Glory Hallelujah!" It beats bridge,
it lavs euchre in the shade, it makes
the job in the shop look like 30
cents. The girl who can cook is a
divinity. She is the delight of a
man's soul and a glory in the Bight
of God. And we have such girls in
Texas, but the need for a million or
two more is pressing.—Houston

city's income from saloons.
Every saloon license which was in
force in Chicago on April 30 has
been renewed for the first period of
1909. For the first time since the
$1,000 license and the ordinance
limiting the number of saloons went
into effect in 1905 not a single sa-
loon has allowed its permit to lapse.
City officials believe that in the fu-
ture Chicago's income from saloon
| licenses will never fall below $7,000,-

killed by hailstones.
A terrific hailstorm ravaged north-
em Boumania recently. The hail-
stones in some places were as large
as a man'B fist, and many pheasants
and hundreds of cattle were killed
by them. The hail in places lay
three feet deep. A torrent of rain
water two feet deep tore through the
streets of a village. Three children
■ were drowned, and the paving was
dislodged as though by an earth-
quake. The deaths caused by light-
ning and hail number about 40.
