RACE HATRED IN EUROPE.
Neighbor WIiom IlUllka for Each Other
If Constantly Mnlretod.
We know of few circumstances in
modern Europe more disheartening
than the depth of the distaste felt by
its different races for one another.
Their growth in civilization, which
certainly goes on, though it is very
slow, seems only to deepen their dis
like, which, again, is increased by their
propinquity. Theso Germans and
Czechs of Bohemia cannot tolerate
each other, though they are not only
intermixed but know that, whatever
happens, they must remain intermixed
r the end of time.
The Spaniards and Portuguese are
lodged side by side in the same penin
sula, under circumstances which would
make fusion enormously advantageous
to both, Spain gaining her natural cap
ital and trading river, and Portugal
gaining the force to keep and to utilize
her colonies. Yet the keenest observers
report that fusion is impossible, because
Spaniards despise Portuguese and Por
tuguese at once dread and detest Span
iards. The Germans and Slavs in the
east of Europe can hardly be compelled
to keep the peace of Europe, while the
German loathing for a Dane is as in
tense, and, we may add. as unintelli
gible, as the loathing of a Dutchman
for the Germans. The Italians and the
French, though their frontiers touch,
despise each other heartily, and when,
a3 in Marseilles, they are forced into
industrial competition, they can hardly
keen from blows.
Tne Slavs and the Greeks living in
the same Turkish provinces, though
they have the bond of a common servi
tude, confess to a repulsion they can
not conquer; and the Poles and the
Germans of Prussia, subjects of the
same crown and invested with the
same rights, regard one another, age
after age, with the same angry sus
picion, li the distaste were dvwe
away, we might say, as so many say
about Ireland, that it was produced by
historic causes only, but we see no evi
dence that it is dying away.
Vn tne contrary, lt.tr-ptars to deepen
as the superincumbent pressure be
comes less, until, in a free and en
lightened city like Berlin, there is a
positive danger lest, if authority were
paralyzed for a few days, the "edu
cated" German population would
spring at the throats of all Hebrews
and bid all Poles depart And all this
wnue the ditterence between the races
is often less than the difference be
tween the families or individuals of
the same race, and is manifested in ac
tion mainly as a difference in tempera
ment and ideals. London Spectator.
These creatures are well known as
among the curiosities of the streams of
tropical South America. A more par
ticular account of them, by an Eng

be of interest

Horses as well as men, on coming in
contact with them in the water, are
not unf requently thrown down by the
shock. They are called by the inhab
itants "treme-treme." In rainy weath
er those who fish in these rivers often
receive a shock, which is communi
cated along the moisture upon the rod
and line, when one of them happens
to seize the hook.
I saw one in a state of captivity. It
was about six feet long, and was so
tame that it would allow any one to
put his hand upon it, and would even
slide for its whole length through the
fingers. If it was irritated in the
smallest degree, however, by no mat
ter how slight a pinch, it "instantly
communicated a smart shock. Youth s
How Do Ton Wear Oat Shoes?
The nature of a person can be told
by the way he or she wears the soles
of his or her shoes. A sole and heel
that are badly worn on the outsides
toward the rear corners indicate a very
passionate person, who is generally
enthusiastic and believes in perform
ing his duties very rapidly. Such
persons proceed up the ladder of fame
by jumps, filling the highest positions
or the profession which they follow.
Not working for money, they only
care for glory, which want is never
satisfied. Such men were Alexander
the Great, Grant, Bonaparte and
An even worn sole indicates an even
going person, who climbs up the lad
der of fame very slowly, accumulat
ing a fortune as he climbs. Such men
become our millionaires, but are sel
dom noted for their valorous deeds.
A sole of which the toe end is badly
worn often indicates a crook or other
criminal. A sole worn on the inside
indicates a person with very little am
bition. Such a person is contented
w hatever his lot in life may be, and he
cares very little for the outside world.
