A City With All the Finish of a Paris
or a Berlin.
Buenos Aires, the capital of the Ar
gentine Republic,- is iu some respects
the most cosmopolitan city in the
world. No important European nation
but has contributed its capital and its
people to the upbuilding of this great
metropolis. It also has the distinc
tion of being the second city of Latin
population in the world, being larger
than the largest, cities in 'Italy and
Spain. - - ..
There is perhaps no city which -ex-.
hibits a greater variety of pleasing
contemporary styles of domestic ar
chitecture. The city council tries to
encourage beautiful building by- an
nually offering a gold medal to the ar
chitect who is found to have planned
the most attractive facade and by
freeing from the building tax the
building thus favored.
The outward aspect of Buenos Aires
is rather that of a European than of
an American capital.' It has "all the
finish of a Paris or a Berlin. The ab
sence of the irregular sky line, caused
in North American cities by ' the ex
treme height of some business build
ings as well as the fact that the
ground of the city is quite uniformly
built upon, even" in the more outlying
regions, keeps the city from present
ing that unfinished appearance which
even our largest cities have. World

A Poor : Place For the Man Who
. Doesn't Want to Work. -
Switzerland is not a place for tramps,
because the man out of employment
and who makes no effort to And work
is not tolerated for a moment in that
country. . The district authorities will
secure him a 'job at hard labor and
little pay, and such an offer can be re
fused only under the penalty of going
to a penal workhouse. . These institu
tions are under military discipline, the
work severe, the wages a penny or
threepence per . day. - and release is
granted only upon the advice of those
in charge. No difficulty is experienced
in determining between beggars and
unemployed, because all legitimate la
borers have papers given them by the
district in which they live containing
information concerning the position
they have held. '
In every part of Switzerland are es
tablished "relief in kind" -stations for
the exclusive use of respectable unem
ployed. Only those are admitted who
have had regular , work during, the
previous three-months and have been
ont of employment for at least . five
days. These men must be on the look
out for work and accept any situation
that is offered, , because the chronic

can never again seek refuge in a "sta

"Old Hickory.", '
The following story, is told" of how
General Andrew Jackson got his title
of. "Old Hickory." Captain William
Allen, who was a near neighbor of the
general, messed with him during the
Creek war. During the campaign' the
soldiers were moving rapidly to sur
prise the Indians . and were-' without
tents. - A cold March wind came on,
mingled with sleet, which lasted for
several days. General Jackson got a
severe cold, but did 'not complain, as
he tried to sleep In a muddy bottom
among bis half frozen soldiers. Cap
tain Allen and bis brother, John, cut
down a stout hickory tree, peeled off
the bark and made a covering for the
general, who was with difficulty per
suaded to crawl under it. The next
morning a drunken citizen entered the
camp and, seeing the tent, kicked it
over.- As Jackson crawled from the
ruins the toper cried: "Hello Old Hick
ory! "Come out of your bark and jine
