JUSTICE HARLAN'S CHEW
"Unexpectedly Caught on the Bench
With Kentucky Brand.
, Washington Star.
Mr. Justice Harlan, of he United States
Supreme Court, enjoys the good things of
this life, especially the products of the
soil of Kentucky, and he classes among
those good things Kentucky plug chewing
tobacco. Mr. Justice Harlan holds in
common with his colleagues due reverence
for the honorable the Supreme Court of
the United States, but he sees no lese
majesty in indulging In a quiet little
chew while the court is sitting.
Last Monday there were many decisions
to be handed down, and after Mr. Justice
Harlan had delivered one,.and other Jus
tices were going ahead with theirs. Mr.
Harlan retired behind the arras for a
moment. When he emerged a bulging of
the Jaw and a certain look of ecstatic de
light on his face told the bar that he had
taken a chow of his Kentucky plug.
Then he leaned back In his chair, crossed
his hands contentedly in front of him and
proceeded to enjoy the mastication of the
tobacco. Then it was that Chief Justice
Fuller played it low down on him. Mr.
Harlan thought his turn was not coming
for some time, but as soon as Mr. Justice
White concluded his decision the Chief
Justice leaned over and nodded to Mr.
Harlan to go ahead.
He was fairly caught. He could not
talk with that quid in his mouth, that was
certain. He looked from right to left in
an embarrassed way for a moment, while
Chief Justice Fuller smiled and the mem
bers of the bar began to grin. Finally, as
he had to go ahead, he leaned over the
cuspidor, and, taking the quid deftly from
his cheek, deposited It, and after a drink
of water, proceeded, while the members
of the bar smiled, and some of the elders
on the back rows even laughed.

TURKS ON THE WARPATH
MIMTIA ARE QUIET, OBEDIENT AD
SEED LITTLE TOOD.
Poorly Dreaaed, Tfcer Have "With
Quick: Motion, Like Wild
Beast Ready to Spring.
Paul Lindau, the well-known German
traveler and author, during ode of his
trips In Turkey, studied a band of redlfs,
or militia, just called out for military
service. Here follow the results of his
observations, given in his book "Zwel
Relsen in der Turkey."
At the station there was a hustle and
bustle, but it wae like life in a big anthill,
so quiet and orderly was. everything, in
spite of any seeming confusion. Three
battalions of reservists, numbering SOO
men each, had just landed from three long
trains. After a long trip, during which
the men bad been cramped, they were
given a chance to stretch their limbs.
Here were men who had been taken from
their work only the day before for mili
tary duty the militia of the country.
It wae not a pleasant sight. The men
looked fearless and frightful. Most of
them, if not In rags, were at least badly
dressed. Feet and legs up to the knee
were enveloped In a light-green felt,
bound around with string. Baggy cotton
breeches, bright-colored vests, over which
were so-called lace trimmed Greek Jack
ets; a girdle wound around the body sev
eral times and a fez completed the dress.
They were strong and well set up. One
could not fall to be Impressed by their
even development. They moved with a
quiet, elastic motion which reminded one
of a wild beast ready to spring. Their
dark eyes glittered unpleasantly. Their
small white teeth shone. Finer "cannon
feed" I have never seen. I could quite
easily believe what I had often heard from
experts that the Turkish redlf. with the
very worst of care. Is capable of perform
ing wonderful feats of marching, and.
properly officered, never turns back.
They scarcely looked at us, although It
Is certain that they had rarely seen any
one dressed in European fashion. As we
went from one group to another they gave
way, neither eagerly nor ill-naturedly.
When we asked questions we received curt
but not surly replies:
"Where are you from?"
"How old are you "
"I don't know."
"Where are you going?" -
"I haven't been told."
"Are you tired?"
"We had water."
That was about the sum and substance
of what we could leam. Just then they
found something better to do than answer
our questions. Without crowding or show
ing the slightest impatience, quietly and
earnestly they went to a table upon which
was "heaped a pile of bread. Each one
bought himself a piece weighing nearly
Ave pounds, for which he paid a piastre;
then, without a word, moved away to
make room for another. In half an hour
every man had been served. I learned
that one piastre a day was all the redlt
received, and that the dry bread, washed
down with water, was all that he got to
cat and drink in 24 hours.
The under officers, who were distin
guished by being In uniform, stood about
doing nothing, and apparently took not
the slightest notice of their men. No loud
order was to be heard. Not all the redlfs
could afford tobacco, although I was told
that the better-o-do shared with their
poorer comrades, and that in the cars, as
long as any man had any tobacco, all
smoked. We went over and bought 200
little packages of the weed. When we of
fered one to a redlf he took It and saluted;
but no one moved his hand to ask for one.
When we had distributed all the tobacco
there remained COO men who had received
none, but not a look of request did we see.
All the same, most of them looked poverty-stricken,
and tobacco was a godsend to
them. Most of 'the Turks I have seen, and
among them were powerful men. devils
and worthy men. Of course, in Turkey,
as In other countries, there are criminals
of all sorts robbers, murderers, firebugs
but no curs.
At the end of an hour I heard short or
ders repeated in several parts of the sta
tion. As if the officers had strings tied
to the men the latter arranged themselves
in squads, four deep. As soon as the
officer of the squad had glanced over the
lines so as to see that no one was missing
he gave the man on the right a sign with

his hand. The one to -whom the signal -seas
given responded -with a clear, loud "One!
His neighbor followed -with "Two!" and
so on. In a few minutes the counting of
the entire battalion of SOO men was com
pleted. Then the officer made another
hand signal, and as quickly and quietly as
they had gotten together the redlfs sepa
rated. It was evident that they were all
trained soldiers. Again and again was it
impressed upon me that everything went
on quietly, as If by clockwork. I heard no
shouting, no laughing, no singing; only
here and there a word very quietly spok
en. Never have I seen elsewhere at one
place SM men of from 25 to 35 (except reg
ular soldiers) who when "Attention!" was
called stand so still as the- First Redlt
Battalion. The other two battalions were
at a short distance from the station, but
when I "went over to see them I found that
everything was moving just as quickly
and quietly as at the station itself.
I asked a German railroad official how
the redlfs passed the night in the crowded
"Oh, they've not been pampered and
spoiled," he replied, i 'They come an
stretch out on the floor, and from sunset
to sunrise nothing is heard from them.
They're a curiously quiet lot, and demand
practically nothing. They don't rejoice;
they don't complain In which they are
very different from our own soldiers. They
are indescribably content. They are said
to nght well. I have seen here that they
are at least wonderfully obedient to their
officers. What is more, the officers have
to give scarcely any orders. Every redlf
seems to know what is expected of him.
What is more, he does it, and that with
out waiting for any order."
That I had already noticed. But as I
thought of the hard faces and the dark
glistening eyes, It came over me that
these well-dlsclpllned troops could, by an
outbreak of religious fanaticism, be trans-
formed into fearful wild beasts If a cap
tured city were turned over to them. But
the Turkish soldier, if properly led, will
bear comparison with the best soldier of
the. world. He fights cheerfully, Js as
brave as a lion, has no fear of death. Is
strong and quick of foot, contented and
TEST FOR DRINK HABIT.
Sfcrevrd Man Proved His Clerks Were
New York Herald.
Half a score of clerks In one of the
largest brokerage houses In New York
were astounded one morning last week
when, one by one. they "were called Into
their employer's private office and asked
to hold up their feet and show the shanks
of their shoes. They thought the "old I
man" had gone quite mad. Each young J
man as, he entered the office was told to'
sit down and put his foot up on a corner
of the desk where It could be examined.
Then the head of the house put on his
glasses and very carefully scrutinized the
shank of the shoe.
When all had been put through this ex
amination he called the entire force of
clerks Into his office and explained to
them why this unusual examination had
"You are well aware," said he, "that I
will not have a drinking man in my em
ploy If I know it. For some time I have
had good reasons for believing that sev
eral of the young men before me have
been indulging quite jtoo much. Now I
know it. Here are the marks of the. bar
rail on the bottoms of your shoes."
Several of the young men braced them
selves against the wall and lifted their
feet as a blacksmith lifts the foot of a
horse. Sure enough, there were the
glazed, metallic marks on the dry leather.
They were the evidences of guilt and the
young men's faces showed It.
"It's unmistakable proof," said the head
of the house. "You can fix up your
breath at the drug store and the barber
can clean up your eyes and face, but you
neglect the shanks of your ehoes."
That afternoon tfiree young m,e'n. cleaned
out their desks and gave the keys to" the
