The extreme aridity of Arizona, which
has caused tho downfall of many a wcll
laid agricultural scheme and made the
sun-kissed Territory notorious, is uno of
its great merits as a health resort, says
tho New York Sun.
' It is a generally accepted theory nowa
days that tho white plague is to he
stamped out only l<y the segregation of its
victims and an absolutely OUt-of-door lifo
for thom. The first condition is manifestly
impossible in tito crowded city and tho
second is feasible only whore mother na
ture is most beneficent, whore tho sun
never Roes into hiding for months at a
time, whore thc breezes aro not too wanton
and whore the night air is as dry and free
from vapors as th" day.
All these conditions tor the absoluto euro
or the amelioration of consumption .aro to
bo found at their best in the Sou;!'wost,
particularly iii .the Salt River Valley,
Ariz. Within its area of 500.000 acres,
fruitful as thc (Jard?n of tho Co ds, so soon
as irrigation is applied, there are miles of
desert whore thc climatic conditions for
the relief of all pulmonary troubles aro
perhaps unexcelled in this country or
abroad. Hore tile transition of the sea
sons-and there arc bu: two. four months
of summer and thc rest of tho year a p< r
potual spring-is slow and gradual. The
skies are a cloudless blue, tho air so sweet
that it can almost bo tasted, and tho
average humidity so low as to be incon
ceivable to tho sweltering resilient of the
coast and lake regions.
For December and January tho mocking
bird warbles his clear-throated epithalam
lum to his brown mato in tho cotton
woods-tho full orchestra of red-winged
blackbirds follows khe lead of ?ts sable
precentor who sits up on a pepper bough
and conducts his followers through a
chorus of Wagnerian melody, tho shirt
waist girl swings in itor hammock as com
fortably as in an Eastern Juno, and the
small boy beats the sides ot* his luirro or
Indian pony with bare brown feet. Pic
nics are the order of tho day. In Febru
ary the almond orchard-:, which rim tito
desert's northern edge, burst into a mass
of pink whit.' bloom, the pomegranates
aro budded and the blossoming orange
groves send forth their fragrance for milos
In the colder lands tito invalid would be
shivering in furnace-heated rooms, fearful
of every draught. Here he spends his
days and often '"is nights iii tho open, the
sturry heavens his canopy. Tito nights
throughout tho winer aro cool, sometimes
cold. There was ono week last January
when ice formol in tho water bucket in
the tent, and a hot stone for the feet,
night caps and bed socks were m ir.- than
Welcome. Blankets aro a necessity all the
winter. Yet with the rising of the sun
genial spring again asserts itself. This
difference of temperature between night
and day Is possibly iii.- one exception to
perfect climatic conditions. Forewarned,
however, is forearmed, and with plenty of
bedding and warm tilga, garup nts there
is no danger of taking cold?
It is a strange tiling ai>out this desert
life, that it lias a charm which crows with
acquaintance-and one who has spent .-..nie
timo in tho elosort is said to bo never quite
happy elsewhere. Tho summers aro hot.
There need bo no reservations a if mt that
statement. For days last July lite tii-r
mometer registered anywhere from iv de
gree to HT degrees right .along-hut tho
absence of humidity made tho heat much
easier to boar than iii" close, muggy de
vitalized air of Now York and Brooklyn.
There were no sunstrokes, no heat pro~
tratinns. Ranchers went about their work
suffering no inconvenience.
Although the majority of health-seekers
turn their faces to the seacoast of South
on California or the pines of Prescott tor
midsummer Lays those who bravo th" In ir
and remain are said to derive the greatest
benefit ut this season. Tho intense heat
seems to heal tho lung tissue and destroys
the germs. Sufferers from kidney trouble
or rheumatism ?Uso make their greatest
gain in summer.
While nearly every ranch in the valley
stands ready, for a consideration, to open
its doors to tho invalid, tho best result.?.
are to bo attained from tenting on the
desert itself. Tho ranches must ho irri
gated at stated intervals. The debert, no
man's land, is dryness itself.

Tho coming autumn and winter season
will differ but little in the sartorial sense
from that of last year. Tho changes have
boon very few, and in thc main represent
some slight modification of or departure
from standards that have become very
familiar. Men's dress is being held down
to very conventional lines. Tho run of
color that was the distinguishing feature
of last year is to be curtailed and color
will not be prominent in anything that
man wears. Sombre tones in overcoatings
and suitings and very neat color effects in
cravatings and shirtings will form thc
most prominent and distinguishing feature
in the mode of thc coming season.
I have observed in looking over tho new
goods for autumn that all that ls called
now. paradoxical though it may seem, is
really old. This ls tho modern tendency in
all things related oven in the slightest de
degree to art. Thc painters are drawing
on the old schools for inspirations, design
ers are revelling In tho art of ino seven
teenth century, house decorators arc copy
ing old interiors and furniture and tho ar
chitects aro drawing inspirations from the
Greek and Roman schools. In dress we
arc mollifying or changing fashions that
have boen in vogue before. Tho culross,
the wing collar, the skirted greatcoats and
tho now narrow-tip shoos aro mero revi
vals of old-time favorites.
STYLES IX SHIRTS.
In shirts 1 look for very few changos
and practically no innovations. For dress
thc plain linen bosom shirt, with slightly
rounded or square- link cuffs attached, will
be thc best form. Tho bosoms will bo ns
wide os thc chest of tho wearer admits.
The stitching will he of moderate width.
Some of the dross shirts will have very
fine ribbed pique bosoms, but I ?lo not
think that this style will ho as generally
accepted as the plain bosom. There will
be throe stud holes in tho bosoms, two
of which will show in tho waistcoat open
ing. Tho shirt for wear with tho evening
jacket will bo t lie same as that worn with
the swallowtail coal. Some- shirt makers
show a ?ino pleated shirt for wear with tile
jacket, and no doubt it will bo quito pop
ular with the younger set. Tho colored
shirts for day wear show with piala
bosoms and tho patterns aro noticeably
neat. Tho figures aro printed on mario
plans or on satin broches or percales. The
former fabrics aro given mote attention
in the finer shops than percales are. Tho
figures aro neat geomctricals in black;
dark bim-, reds or lavender; stripes ure
also displayed. They are narrow and

COLLARS AND CRAVATS.
In collars the three new styles aro the
wing, poke and straight stand, r. These
aro in both wide and narrow stitching. Tho
wide stitched wing collar is not as sightly
as that with narrow stitching, owing to
the liability of tho edge, where the v':<g
bends, to swell and gap. Tho wing coil rs
have weil balanced, moderate spaced
wings, tito bottom of tho wings formiii] a
In cravats all of tho forms aro larg.

The best four-in-hand will have a wide

I at the knot. Tics, if sold at all. will ho

there is a new tie. lt is cut perfectly
straight and has square ends. It is of
uniform width thro bout. When tied it
shows a square, fiat centrepiece and the
ends stand out straight and come to thc
edge of the shirt bosom.
In clothes I lind ind.cations which point
to tho usual fish: of tho tailors to force
new fashions. In tho first place, wo will
have the annual cry for color in < vening
dress and for the free .loin from blacks
ijiid white.? in day dress. Ai! of .ais 1 do
not think will amount to much. The best
tailors are making trousers rather wide,
lou avoiding the peg-top fenn. The trous
ers ate about seventeen and one-half
inches at too knee and lift. , n and one
half at the bottoms. They will hang per
fectly straight from th.- hips. For . ven
ing dress the white waistcoat will bo given
a wry prominent place. These will bo
made both single and double-breasted and
will have buttons covered with the mate
rial fd' which tile waistcoat is made, lu
evening dress coats th? f.- will bo no change

staple fixture and it scorns impossible to

Merchants and statesmen to-day con
gratulate themselves upon the wonderful
spread nf this country's commerce, the
greatest any nation has ever seen. But
they do not. perhaps, realize that the na
tion has advanced in another way that ls
possibly thc true core of our national suc
cess. This is the extraordinary advance
in scientific learning, as shown in the
universities, professional and technic.il
schools and in everyday iifc. If this rapid
moulding of America into a scientific na
tion ?Ines not fully account for Hie com
mercial victories, it has at all events con
tributed largely t . them.
So pronounced has been the development
nf these- universities and schools that now
nt tin- h.-ginning of the century they sur
pass those ot" Europe. And yet surpass?e]
ls hy no means the right word. There is
tm Institution in Europe resembling them
or organized on quite thc same plan. Thc
scientific school of America In Its grasp
rn" what really constitutes practical, exten
sive training has no counterpart In the
world, lt turns out scientists that are at
the -ame time workmen cf the highest
type. The universities and technical
schools of England and the Continent, ex
cellent as many of them are, have not ful
ly caught Hie spirit and trend of the time.
Thc tree nt' the new American scientific
education is bring known by Its fruit, it
has brought a new sort of workman into
I the Held nf labor, and European Indus
try stands hy. wondering why ber repre
sentatives cannot do as well.
The explanation of it is all very simple,
however. American technical education
had its lirst beginning fifty years ago.
Within the past twenty-live years the sci
entific professional schools have been see
ing their true development. Now the com
bined results have become so great that
they arc apparent all over the world.
"The earliest technical schools." wrote
Prof Mendenhall, president of the Tech
nological Institute of Worcester. Mass, in \
his monograph on "Scientific, Technical
and Engineering Education In the United
. States." prepared for the recent Paris Ex
? position, "those of n hundred years ago
; or mure, almost without exception, gre w
out of the Industrial demands of the local
; hy In which they were founded. One of
tho best examples ls the famous School of
Mines, at Freiberg, which has enjoyed a
Inn? and illustrious career, and many of
i he earlier European schools belong to tho
same class. To these and the more mod
ern schools of science and technology thc
United States are greatly indebted, espe
cially on account of the generous wel
come that has always been extended to
American students and for the inspiration
with which many of them have returned
to take their part in the wonderful educa
tional evolution which thc- las: half cen
tury has witnessed.
"But in all cases European methods have
been adapted rather than adopted. . . .
and while the nearly li?'1 schools of science
ami engineering scattered over the United
States have many p.tints of resemblance,
there is much individuality, particularly
among thc strongest and best, and ii ls be
lieved that their several types represent
Important advances in the direction nf
scientific and technical education."
This matter cf scientific training for
youth makes but a conservative, quiet
claim, though yet a substantial une. Ile
might have pointed to some of the results
e." these "believed to be important ad
vances." American technical school grad
uates have come to be the bridge builders
of th. world. There are no steel mallets,
no tool makers in Europe cental io the
cool, keen young scientists in American
shops and mills. Nor has til" Coiilin. nt
and England such a race of railway con
struction engineers. Only this summer the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
hi Id examinations In London for tile young
Englishmen of scientific tastes, who. to
learn what they wanted to lit them for
the scientific world, found their only re
course an American school. And. in the
field of medicine, four distinguished physi
cians and singeons of this country are
now touring the world at the request of
foreign doctors who are anxious to learn
accurately of the advances of this branch
of the science in thc New World.
Out nf many significant instances these
have been picked. The number might be
greatly added to. wah only thc advantage
of emphasizing the point. That which has
th. mos: pronounced is. however, the turn
ing of the ti.!.-. Thirty years ago. and oven
wei! onto v. ry recent years, the American
student of .my kind of science found it a |
par: of his education ?o go to the schools
abroad for as long a period as his pocket
book could stand. His education was not
thought complete till then. Ami it wis
not. for scientific training in this country
was n it formed. Now ?he student iias no
need to g". As be takes his .legre.- h.- is
far beyond what Hie schools of Europe
teach. Atal y-ar following year, in in
creasing numbers, young Europeans are
; coming over herc to grasp tit..- training
that our univers.lies are giving ami to
absorb th. technique und me thorough
practicalness thai ari making American
sch mists masters of men.
"Adapted" wa.- the word Prof Menden
j hall used in sp akia:: of European meth
j ods and th.- American universit?s, "rather
j ti.an adopted." Itu: a h is been very much
' more t'a m ?ii at. Brushing traditions aside
these institutions of learning went long
ai:o to th. root of ;!:. matter. Vi ar hy
year UK y have been building up their
: equipment, strengthening I heir courses.
? Questions of finance and whether it would
al! pay they have politely laughed at.
Money was needed for this and for that.
Well, the c hiefs would see that i. was ob

Montrose knew Merehiston Castle, Edin
burgh, well: it was. in fact, a second h.-me
t.. him In his boyhood, for his sister Mar
garet ha I married Slr Archibald Kapler
whin Montrose was li d ? years old, and
he spent much o? his t.A- with them. The
Napier.?? had. besides, a town mansion
within the precincts of l-Iolyrood House;
but to little Montrose, brought up in tho
country, the old castle, with its barns and
out nous?:- and granges, was no doubt a
m'-re attractive holiday home than a dull
town house in the fashionable Cannongate.

parks, or. maybe, escaped from his watch
ful "pedagog." Master William Forrea,
imperiling'himself, boylike, on the battle
ments of the castle.
But to get to t . story of thc heart one
must leave the life and hasten to the
: death of Montrose. His sister and broth
. er-in-law had died long before1, and the
i owner of Merehiston in ICM was Mont
rose's nephew, the second Lord Napier. A
i great affection existed between Montrose
! ami hts niece by marriage; Lady Napier;
. and as ;. mark of lt he bequeathed t-> her
' his heart-a strange, and. if one must tell
the truth, an embarrassing, legacy; but
looked upon by iii" lady hersch as a su
preme honor and a sacred trust.
I Montrose was executed at the Market
Cross of Edinburgh on Tuesday. May ;'!.
K".i. The extraordinary composure and
gallantry of his bearing are well attested.
An unsigned letter in the British Museum,
written by a spectator while thc execution
was actually going on, says: "I never saw
a mor?- sweeter carriage in a man in all
my life, lie ls just now turning off from
tito ladder: but his countenance changes
hot." Another account says: "He stept
along th.- streets with so great state, so
much beauty, majesty and gravity as
amazed the beholders. And many <?( his
enemies did acknowledge him to no the
bravest subject in thc world, and in him a
? callan!ry that graced ail thc crowd."
j Clothed in "line searli t richly shammaded
with golden lac*-, and linen with line

j in his hand, hi- stockings o? Incarnate

I feet.!' his dress was "more becoming a
brldegro >m latin a criminal."
After hanging on the gibbet for three
hours til- ?.ody was taken down and the
head was affixed to tho Tolbooth: thc
limb.- were dispers?*! to various pla res
throughout the Kingdom, and the dismem
bered trunk was enclosed in a "little short
chest" and buried on thc Boroughrnulr.
I The Boroughrnulr was the usual place of
' execution and burial for th- worst erlmi
! nais; it was a place of evil reputation, iit
! tie sought during the day and much to be

I who. with Lord Napier and others of the
. conneetl m. was still living in exile in Hoi
j land, and here begins the first par: of its
adventures, of which, unfortunately, no
i r.-c iid now remains.
j For many years tiie heart was complete
ly lost sight "f. and any 'nop.- of ever re
gaining it had lone been givi n up. when a
friend of the Napier family recognised the
gol?! filigree box enclosing the steel .ase
among a co!!ei?tion of curiosities in Hol
la nd. He purchased the relient once and
returned ;: to Merehiston: at that lime
th-- property of Francis, the fifth Lord
Napier. There for a s.ind time the heart
r- posed, but not for lom:. On th.- death
of th?- (if:!i Lord Napier it passed into the
keeping of his only surviving daughter.
Hester, afterward Mrs Johnston.
' Some y.-ars after her marriage Mrs John
? s:-.n was ?ni a voyage to India with h r
hiisbnmi, her little son. and al! their
household goods, when Huir ship; which
formed part of th.- licet under Commodore

frigate, and a s::tf light ensued. Mr John

It was par: of the training of the little
boy who had stood beside his parents dur
ing the attack on the Indiaman io spend
faur months of every year with a native
chief, in order to learn something ot" the
language and native methods of hunting
and shooting. While on a sporting exp?
dition the h,.y distinguished himself ia

whereupon the chief, to show his apprecia
tion .if the performance promised, in true
Oriental fashion, to give the lad practical
ly anything he chose :.? ask. As this chief
wes the purchaser of thc nm. young John
ston naturally begged that the family
property might b handed back to him.
Tlte chief made a generous speech in re
ply, explaining that when he bought the
urn and its contents he Jud no idea that
they were stolen goods, and adding that
"otic brave m in should always attend to
the wishes of another brave man, what
ever Iiis religion or his race might be;
ther-fere he considered i: his duty to ful
fil the wishes of tile brave man whose
heart was in the urn, and whose wish had
been that his ivar: should be kept by his
?i scehdanis." Accordingly the boy re
turned home laden wita gifts of ail sorts
for himself and his mother, and carrying
with him thc urn and a letter of apology
from its ?atc custodian. The death of this
liberal-minded chief forms an interesting
sequ. ! to this adventure of the heart. Hav
ing rebelled against che Nabob of Arcot,
ii,, was taken by English troops, and he
and many of his family were executed.
When the chief was told he would b put
to death he referred to the story of Mont
rose, and said that as there was something
alike in the mintier of their dying, so he
hoped that after death his attendants
would preserve hts heart, as the hear: of
Montrose had been preserved, for future
y. n. rations to honor.
The Johnston family returned to Eurone
