be New England farmers of slender
means, was recently asked If he bad

"No," was the prompt reply. "My pa-

No broad-minded observer will over
look the significance of the Interest
with which the people of German birth
or descent regarded the recent visit of
l'rlnce Henry. They have made their
homo here, yet they still look back
with fondness to the fatherland. The
sentiment Is altogether admirable and
praiseworthy. It assumes an objec
tionable form only when tho foreign-
born citizens become clannish, when
they set themselves In eroutis anart
from the general body of the people
among whom they live, and transfer
tho politics of tho old country to tho
new. The love for the laud of their
nativity which persists In the breasts
of tho foreign-born does not differ from
the sentiment that has made success
ful tho reunions In various parts of the
country in Old Homo Week. Migration
from Massachusetts to Montana dif
fers only In degree from migration
from Italy to Illinois, and the emigrant
from Ittissla to the United States has

Englander who should put behind him
the tender memories of his boyhood

Therefore wo cannot blame, but wu
ought to applaud, the European who
has a warm place. In his heart for tho
country of his birth, the customs of
his youth, and the people who speak
his native language. He Is all the bet

It Is stilted by Dr. Alfred ttllllcr In
nn article In The fortnightly ltcvlew
that the deaths from consumption
throughout Europe nre estimated nt
moro than n million annually. In Kng-
laud and Wales alone more than 00.000
people die of the disease every year,
and this annual mortality exceeds by
10.000 nil the ravages of the "Klack
Death" during the time of the Ureal
I'lague which Is so terribly celebrated
lu English history. Tuberculosis is m
fnct the I'lague of to-day, and the doc
tor speaks of It as a "classic" disease
along with the leprosy of the middle
ages and the smallpox of the time be
fore Jenner. It Is thus ranked as one
of three great scourges of the race, but
the very classltleatlou Is a source of
encouragement. Leprosy has praeil
cally disappeared from Europe owtng
to Improved conditions of living aud
the Incidental assistance rendered by
the Isolated leper houses. Smallpox
most contagious of diseases, has be
come but the shadow of Us former self
owing to vaccination. "Wore vaccina
lion and rcvaccluatlon practiced with
the persistence anil regularity which
nearly a century's experience has
shown to be desirable. It Is probable
that It would be practically extinguish
ed." So. too. tuberculosis may yield to
sanitation and other branches of inedl
cal science, aud the method of preven
tion Is exceedingly simple. Taking the
tlgure of seed, soil aud plant to repre
sent the disease germ, mauklud and
the disease, the writer differentiates as
follows: "In leprosy, the mere sowing
of the seed, the exposure to contagion,
has rarely any result except under
most favorable conditions of soli. In
tuberculosis the exposure to Infection
Is usually but by no means so certain
ly as lu the ease of leprosy, without
result except where predisposing con
ditions exist, that Is In favorable con
ditions of soil. In smallpox almost any
unprotected, unvacclnated person ex
posed to Infection runs the greatest
risk of contracting the disease." Llko
leprosy tuberculosis has been affected
by the Improved conditions of life, the
ltrltlsh death rate having declined from
3.S0O In the million In 1S3S to l.:i03
In 1800. but though the soil Is more
resistant the seed is found every
where, and prevention can be secured
only through Its control. That means
the control of the expectoration of In
fected persons which contain the tu
bercle bacilli, and though the task
seems a large one the co-operation of
the patients and the public would make
it easy. The patients themselves might
solve the difficulty by regulating ex
pectorations, and their Ignorance and
carelessness might be corrected by no
tification of the disease to the health
authorities, which Is made compulsory
In Norway. With a public educated to
the necessities of the case and proper
treatment of patients In Sanatoria Dr.
Illlllor thinks that not only the pre
entIon but the absolute suppression of
tuberculosis would be possible.
MANY SPIES OF THE SULTAN.
Turkey Grotrlne Demoralized Under
the Present iclouw System.
In no country and at no time of the
world's history has the spy system been
developed to the point It has attained In
Turkey to-day. It Is a most elaborate
organization and costs an Immense
amount of money. There are spies and
counter-spies, and counter-counter-
spies to the fourth or fifth degree.
Their number Is legion, and they are
to be found In all classes of society,
from the highest to the lowest Be
sides the minister of police, almost ev
ery high dignitary has his own service
of spies, says the London Chronicle.
These are all rival organizations, and
spend most of their time In spying and
denouncing each other. AU prominent
persons are closely watched, and fol
lowed even while shopping, and should
they meet another person of note and
exchange a few words, the fact Is care
fully noted. Turks no longer dare as
semble In parties of five or six for the
purpose of spending their evenings to
gether. It Is Impossible for three or
four of them to sit down at a table In
a coffee house without having a spy at
the next. On such occasions they al
ways speak very loud, m that every
body may bear them. Should a Euro
pean converse with a Turk In the
street, a spy will follow them and try
to find out what they nre saying. ,
The result of nil this Is that the
Turks avoid one another's company as
much as possible, und whenever they
do come together the conversation Is
on the most futile subjects, and quite
childish. The Turkish nation Is grow
ing more and more demoralized under
the present system.
Superstitions of Iloyalty.
A few years ago, says London Au
swers, King Carlos of Portugal paid a
lengthy visit to England, and one day
he bad to speak to a gathering of emi
nent people at a reception In tho West
End. The day happened to be a Fri
day, and his majesty was upset to the
point of annoyance. In this nervous
condition be chanced to kick over a
flower not. which fell on the head of a
peer who was sitting below the plat
form. King Carlos apologized profuse
ly, and remarked that, had the day
been Saturday, ho was sure the acc!
dent would not have happened. See
ing, however, that he had not hurt the
peer, be humorously remarked:
"I have been a sportsman an my lire
and bagged much big game; but this Is
tho first time I ever potted the bead of
a Ilrltisb peer."
It Is said that on one occasion the
rrlncess of Wales broke a valuable
looking glass. Next day she seemed
terribly upset, and came with a tear
ful story to her royal uusuand.
"Oh. I in so miserable! yesterday I
broke a looking glass, and to-day ono
of my poor cats Is dead!"
Tho prince Is not particularly rona
of cats, and on the following day sent
for her highness.
"Any more cats dead this morning?"
No, replied tho princess, horrllled.
Why do you ask?"
"Uecauso I wcut and broke four look
ing glasses yesterday," replied bis roy
al highness, laughing.
A girl's Idea of genuine misery Is to

then have It rain all day Sunday.

The work Is yet being carried on un

of Chicago hae already spent $37.;i7S,-S-IO

They must spend nearly $10,000,000

Great Halt Lake
According to the report of the United

Lake has been steadily sinking for a

drop of ocean, left behind when tho Pu.

dry up Into a salt basin, there would be
grief and Iobs In Utah, slnco It has bo-
como u prominent point for business
and pleasure. As to the causo of tho

some that tho lako Is subject to cycles
of change, and this Is Its low water per

clearing of tho forests from tho neigh
