The Baltimore American sums up the
situation in the following language:
European war scares have not material­
ized this summer with tbe same ease and
frequency as in former years, but there
may be all the more reason for apprehen­
sion. Heretofore it has been to the in­
terest of certain Europen statesman to
fill the air with rumors of pressing [terils
that they might control a parliment and |
accomplish a bit of domestic legislation '
to which the people were not partial, and
it has been shrewdly suspected that
most ot the panics were originated and I
engineered by these wily public function- '
aries with no more serious designs : but
now the situation is altered. Bismark
himself lays the greatest stress on the
pacific intentions o( Germany,and assures
the world, with an energy that makes the
wish appear to lie father of the thought,
that there is no danger of com plications for
several years to come, anyhow. No I
doubt Bismark is, and has been a jiotcnt.

there is always present to the mind bis |
dogmatic assertion that the triple alliance .
composed of Germany, Autria-Hungary,
and Italy is the stable guarantee of the
etatue quo —a fair inference at the time it
was made, but not so self evident to-day.
The Russians have been working like
beavers since then to involve some sort
of system out of the chaos in which their
military was floundering, with the result
that they have concentrated an army of
700,000 men on the German and Aus­
trian frontiers, and have provided them­
selves with a supply of monev for any Is Unexcelled for Durability. Ease of Operation, and Lightness of Draft.
contingency that may arise. But this is
not all accomplished by the Russians
since the triple alliance was formed. The
Roumanian government, which can put
in the field 150,000 troops, lias veered
completely round, and from being the
strongest of Austria’s allies, is now in
thorough sympathy with the czar. Ser-
via has compelled her king to abdicate,
as much on account of Austrian leanings
as for any other reason, and theie is a
possibility that the dormant Russian
sympathies of the Bulgarians may be
aroused, and Ferdinand forced to
pronounce for the czar or leave the coun­
try.. A union of the Balkan provinces

body of the Russians to operate against |
Gennany, and while France could divide
her foiees, liold-rg the Italians in cheek
with one dctatcbinent, and making a vig
orous campaign against Emperor Wil-I
liam with the other. Bismark, if be
were to express bis real sentiments now,
would probably say the maintenance of
peace or war rests with tbe czar and not
with the triple alliance. The czar, to all
appearances, has outgeneraled tlie sa
gactious chancellor. Of equal signifi­
cance is the hold of Crispi upon the Ital­
ian government. 11c has already been

with the result that Italy would once
again throw herself into the arms of
France. The withdrawal of Italy from
the alliance would destroy the formida­
ble character of the alliance at once and
compel Germany to Beek other friend­

Harriet Beecher Stowe is in much bet­

King Humbert, of Italy, is learning the
meaning of the word “razzle-dazzle” in
German. His digestive apparatus leaves
much to be desired so far as strength is
concerned, and his physicians fear that

Humbert is a billious-looking little man,

that she had thought she was too old to

Degrading to Trite Veterans.
It has been decided by the pension de-
I>artment that a soldier about to be mus­
tered out, who was slightly injured in
the leg by an empty demijohn, which
was being playfully tossed about the
camp, is entitled to a pension. This
would seem to mean that all soldiers hit
by demijohns, whether full or empty,
are also entitled to pensions; and that
no distinction can lie made on “the roll
of honor” between a soldier bit by a bul­
let in front of the enemy and one hit by
a demijohn in fiont of friends. Messrs.
