There is in Paris a new school of
psychology to investigate such ques-
tions as mind reading, mental sug-
gestion at a distance, clairvoyance,
piesentiments, automatic writing,
double personality, etc. This school un-
like most associations studying these
subjects, has for Its members medical
men almost entirely, whose profes-
sional duties bring them in close con-
lact with these often curious phe-
nomena. The members are followers
of Charcot. They claim that most of
these societies of psychical research,
especially in England, have produced
no results, due to too much specula-
tion and mysterious interventions,
which have led people into error,
which is more difficult to uproot than
it is to propagate the truth.
Bulbs for Winter Flowering.
In August I order my bulbs for win-
ter flowering in the house and for
outdoor planting in beds. Get two or
three hundred different colored cro
cuses this fall and make holes about
three inches deep in the grass on the
lawn and drop in a crocus bulb. Cov
ei each with fine earth and tamp
down. It will be a pleasure to see
the lawn studded with their bright
paces in the early springtime.
Of all the bulbs for winter flower-
ing, tho sweetest and most satisfac-
tory is the freesia. The yellow flow-
ers are beautiful, and this winter I
am going to revel in the white and
yellow freesia.—National Magazine.
Military Circles Stirred.
Col. Samuel E. Tilman, a professor
of sciences at the West Point Military
Academy, has started a warm discus
sion in military circles over his sug
gestion in the Journal of the Military
Service Institution that there should
be two academies for the education ol
army officers. He contends that the
old academy is being overburdener.
with students and the curriculum
overtaxed, and it is thereby losing its
value for thorough training. Military
authorities hold that the present serv-
ice schools for artillery, cavalry, sub
marine defense, engineering, and so
on, are sufficient to meet all demands,
and that the West Point institution
should be retained just where it is,
where camaraderie and school loyalty
will be developed in all who enjoy its

Time Not a Factor.
Never at a loss for argument or
successful repartee, Bishop Potter of-
fers another contribution to the lit-
erature of excuses for the delay in
the construction of the Cathedral of
St. John the Divine.
"Bishop," exclaimed one of his
Rock, who is a generous donor to the
building fund, "does it not distress
you to see time fly by and so little
done on the Heights?"
"Madame," was the grave response,

Lead All in Wealth.
With 7 per cent of the world's
land area and 5 per cent of its popu
lation, the United States has 25 pet
cent of the world's wealth, says Les
lie's Weekly. The value of the United
States property, real and personal, in
1900, was $94,000,000,000, as compared
with $59,000,000,000 for Great Brit
ain and Ireland, $48,000,000,000 for
France, $45,000,000,000 for Germany,
$32,000,000,000 for Russia, $22,000,000
for Austria-Hungary, $15,000,000,000
for Italy and $12,000,000,000 for Spain.

ill the other nations in wealth is in-
creasing faster than is her preponder

China) in population.

The Folly of Grief.
It Is wicked to grieve. It is a sin
against the mind, a sin against th«
bedy and a sin against the minds and
bodies of all with whom the mourner
ccmes in contact. To grieve about
what can not be helped is foolish
and to grieve about what can b«
helped means that we are indolent,
too indolent to get up and stamp out
the forces that make us miserable.—
