A formidable explosion ensued; the

QUEER THINGS IN NICARAGUA.
Mlnlatera Vnueeessary, aa Zelaya
MnnaR-ea Republic hy Phone.
According to the statement of an
American resident of Nicaragua, who
has the confidence of President Zelaya
of that republic, the Mexican Herald
says, the reports of the dliriculties suf
fered in paying the Emory claim have
been exaggerated or based upon mlsap-
The above gentleman was In Nica
ragua quite recently and while there
visited President Zelaya. He saw that
though the amount of the Emery
claim, $000,000 gold, was a consider
able sum, there are' some redeeming
features, principal among which is the
fact that the railroad track, houses,
log cutting plant and other property
of the Emery company, valued at up
ward of $u73,000, gold, nil revert to
the Nlcaraguan government, according
to the terma of settlement. Tha gov-1
crnment can use all these facilities on
Its own account, so that their value is
no loss. Furthermore, he says mat
the government owns all Us steamship
lines, railroads and other public utili
ties, which pay 33 per cent annually,
and are not hypothecated to the slight
est extent, and that money could easi
ly be raised on these if the situation
were serious. The same gentleman
said that he had an offer from a for
eign syndicate to lend the Nlcaraguan
government 1,000,000 some three
months ago, hut that President Zelaya
refused the opportunity, saying that
the need for the money was not great
enough to justify the government's
taking on the debU
The reported closing of the war col

that telegraph lines had been sup

this had been brought about by entire
ly other considerations than those of
economy. As for the dismissal of all

them easily to be dispensed with.

approach. Economy could have had
nothing to do with the dismissal of
the cabinet nilulsters, since they held
their offices merely through patriot'

In 1907, the year of the financial de
pression, tho tide of immigration from
Southern and Southeastern Europe
had attained such strength and vol
ume that almost every editorial writer
In the country felt called upon, more
or less often, to dilate upon what this
Influx of strange peoples would mean
not only to themselves but to the re
public. From Italy and Austria-Hun
gary the protest was especially loud.
for stern figures showed that during
the year Austria-Hungary had lost by
Immigration to the United States 338,-
452 of Its people, while Italy was re
duced by more than a quarter of a
This remarkable movement from the
home soil could not pass unnoted, for
every phase of human relation was af
fected by it. The landowner felt it
most of all, for the men who left were
his laborers. Their passing reduced
his supply of available labor, increas
ed the wages of those who were left
and altered their servile attitude to
one approaching Independence, so he
naturally enough cried out against
emigration, declaring that America
was robbing tho European nations of
their strongest, leaving the aged, tha
women and the children.
Frightened by the protest, Austria
Hungary passed drastic emigration
laws under which It will henceforth
be harder for the populace to escape
its surveillance and service. But even
before these laws had a chance to dam
the westward tide the Industrial de
pression prevailing in this country in
tho winter of 1907-8 had turned it
eastward. With the advent of "hard
times," with the closing of mills and
mines and the lessening of railroad
construction, .many of the recently ar
rived immigrants who had been per
forming the coarser, cruder tasks re'
quired by the Industrial development
of tho country returned to their native
Among those who have watched tin
ebb and flow of this Immigrant tldo,
and who many times has made him
self a part of it so he might better
understand Its meaning, is Dr. Edward
A. Stelner, professor of applied Chris
tianity In Grlnnell College, Iowa, and
author of "On the Trail of the Immi
grant," "The Mediator" and "Tolstoy,
the Man and His Message."
Dr. Steiner Is in no sense of the
word a statistician, though in his book
are a few tables showing the Increase
and decrease of immigration from
European countries. He Is too intense
ly Interested In his fellow man, too
keenly alive to his humanity, to re
duce hkn to arithmetical terms. Every
one of the millions who have come
to this country is to him an Indi
vidual. He says of himself in this
book: "I .recognize no barriers of
race, class or religion between myself
and any other human being that needs
me. I happen to know something
Most cases of chronic poisoning by
lead are those of smelters, painters,
painters, glaziers, and other artisans
of this class, who inhale the metal In
the form of fine dust, or swallow it
with their food, often, Indeed, as a
result of tholr own carelessness.
In such cases the nature of the ill
ness Is immedlataly recognizable, as a
rule, for the attack la always expected.
But some persons are so sensitive to
the action of lead that poisoning oc
casionally originates In seemingly the
most unaccountable manner.
Sometimes It follows such obscure
accidents as the drinking of water or
other beverage that has passed
through new lead pipes, or that has
been stored in casks lined with lead;
the eating of food that has been cooked
in lead-enameled vessels, or the use
of cosmetics containing the metal. It
has resulted also from the wearing
of artificial teeth in the manufacture
of which lead has been wrongfully
used, and even from the repeated bit
ing of lead dyed silk thread. In a few
Instances, too, lead pigments have been
used to Improve the color of food prep
arations, and large quantities of flour
have been rendered poisonous by the
use of lead to fill defects In the mill
The distinctive symptoms of chronic
lead-polsonlng are derangement of the
digestion, lassitude, aching of the
nnis ied, und dull abdominal pains, or
severe colic of a peculiarly agonizing
character. In most cases there Is a
narrow indigo-blue line in the gums
close to the margin. The BUfferer loses
flesh rapidly, bis skin becomes sallow,
and In the worst cases the nervous
system becomes affected.
Such violent evidences of braln-pols-onlng
as convulsions or acute mania
are less frequently produced than the
form of paralyse known as "wrist
we iEf Raptor
about human beings; I know intimate
ly many races and more nationalities,
and I have discovered that when one
breaks through the strange speech
which so often separates; when one
doses one's eyes to what climate has
burned upon a man's skin, or what
social or economic conditions have
formed or deformed one will find in
every human being a kinsman."
Dr. Stelner Is not the first wise man
to declare that nothing hu.:nan is for
eign to him, but his ability to sympa
thetically Interpret the ideas of those
who are isolated by racial, religious
and social limitations makes his
studies of tho various Immigrants
whom he has met' and known espe
cially Interesting. It also makes his
conclusions worthy of respectful con
sideration even by those not In entire
accord with him.
What does the returning Immigrant
take back besides celluloid collars,
brass-bound trunks, gold, filling In his
teeth and American shoes on his feet?
All of these Dr. Stelner notes, but he
sees them not as evidences of mere
material prosperity. They are sym
bols to hlai of life on a higher plane.
A missionary who had toiled In Africa
among a peculiarly primitive people
said that he could implant no spiritual
aspiration in the hearts of the sav
ages because they had no desire for
any material thing. It was not until
he had taught them to value and de
sire a wash bowl that he could And
anything In their minds on which to
hang his teachings. The divine dis
content of the poets may have Its ori
gin in the desire for shoes, for meat,
for bread, for better clothing, for moro
clothing. Possessed by these desires
men are led to exert themselves, to go
forth to new lands, to work, to learn
new ways, new manners, to enlarge
their lives and to broaden beyond
measurement that of the generations
who follow them. So the returned Im
migrant takes back to his native land
more than the money he has earned,
He takes back the desire to work,
greater respect for himself and for his
wife, a quickened moral sense and
some knowledge as to the need of fresh
air in his sleeping rooms.
Dr. Stelner is confident that if
America does her part the immigrants
from southern Europe will not be a
serious menace. Some of the argu
ments advanced against their desir
ability he answers. Their mobility as
compared with the immigrants from
northern Europe, their movement back
to their old home during the period
of economic distress, he interprets as
an advantage to this country. Cer
tainly distress would have been wider
spread had the unemployed thousands
remained here. Their sending saV'

The Farm era of Central Canada Heap
Wheat and Hlchea.
Up in the Provinces of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta, the prov
inces that compose Central Canada
have such a quantity of land suitable
for the growth of small grains, which
grow so abundantly, and yield so hand
somely that no fear need be feared
of a wheat famine on this Continent
The story reproduced below Is only
one of the hundreds of proofs that
could be produced to show the results
that may be obtained from cultivation
of the lands in these provinces. Almost
any section of the country will do as
Vlth the country recently opened by
the Grand Trunk Pacific, the latest of
the great transcontinental lines to en
ter the field of the development of the
Canadian West, there is afforded added
ample opportunity to do as was done
in the case cited below:
To buy a section of land, break It
up and crop it, make $17,550 out of the
yield and $10,880 out of the Increase
of value all within the short period
of two years, was the record estab
lished by James Bailey, a well-known
farmer within a few miles of Reglna.
Mr. Bailey bought the 640 acres of
land near Grand Coulee two years ago.
He immediately prepared the whole
section for crop and this year had 600
acres of wheat and 40 acres of
oats. The wheat yielded 19,875 bush
els, and the oats yielded 4,750 bushels.
The whole of the grain has been mar
keted and Mr. Bailey is now worth
$17,550 from the grain alone. He
bought the land at $18 an acre, and
the other day refused an offer of $35
an acre, just a $17 advance from the
time of his purchase. The land cost
$11,320 In the first Instance. Here are
the figures of the case: Land first
cost. 640 acres, at $18, $11,320. Wheat
yielded 19,875 bushels, at 84 cents a
bushel, $16,695. Oats yielded 4.750
bushels, at 28 cents a bushel, $855.
Offered for land, 640 acres at $35 an
acre, $22,400. Increase value of land,
$10,880. Total earnings of crop, $17,
550, together with Increase in value of
land, a total of $28,540.
It Is Interesting to note the figures
of the yield per acre. The wheat
yielded 33 12 bushels to the acre, and
oats 118.7 bushels to the acre. The
figures are a fair indication of the av
erage throughout the district.
