only a long ainiator record of myaterloua oourt intrirrne. violence and
oppreaaion. The new, remodelled and liberalized state, has proved
an car tain and disappointing.
Tho modern European Turk ia doirhtlaoa neither terriHe nor un

rather than original or self assertive. They hare adopted cuatoms,
languages and literatures of modern Europe. In education and mili
tary training ttiey hare shown eagerness to learn, and they hare tried
to bring more enterprise and skill to aid the groat natural productive

tenets of honor and temperance.

rule ia the rule of an unwelcome oppressor over smaller peonies of

America. He died before he could parfex-t

an expedition here In 1637. And this expedi

It waa Sweden's one and only effort to seize any part of the Naw
World's rl?h territory, over which Kuropcsn nartlons were even then aquab

Amerira mnVht have been far different. But his suocrssora lacked the
