COLLAPSE OF THE OLD WORLD
Book Which Foretells Great Events
Will Follow General Con.
Spfclul Cnble to The Ilprald.
BI3RLIN, Dec. 2.— The Intent literary
political sensntlon Is a book entitled
"The Collapse of the Old World," by
an anonymous author, who writes un
der tho imm de plume of "Sea Star.."
The hook, which is full of vivid pic
tures of a great war of the future,
describes how the principal European
powers will sacrifice their predominant
position In the world, owing to an out
brenk of war between Britain und Ger
This war Involves other countries,
and In the genernl conflict France,
Spuln and Portugal support Britain,
while Austria and Italy give their naval
and military aid to Germany. Germany
crushes the French army, and the Ger
man army overruns France, but the
British fleet annihilates the German
navy, sustaining terrible losses in ac
complishing that feat.
Finally, Great Britain and Germany
are obliged to abandon the struggle
owing to its disastrous effects in all
parts of the world.
The black and yellow races all over
the earth rise. All Africa is in a tur
moil; the Hottentots, under an Ethi
opian missionary, are massacring and
burning from Swakopmund to Bloem
fonteln, and the English and German
inhabitants unite against the common
The English are driven out of Egypt,
and massacres of whites take place at
Fez— where the sultan of Morocco is
also murdered — as well as in European
Turkey. In China, Japan has incited
the Chinese against the white popula
tion, and ghastly slaughters are re
ported from the Interior.
Japan and the United States of
America become the two greatest pow
ers, while Britain, Gtermany, France,
Italy and Austria are reduced to the
rank of second rate-powers through the
colossal losses which they have sus
tained In combating each other.
The author maintains, In short, that
a war between Great Britain and Ger
many would simply result In losses. to
both combatants, and great gains to
America and Japan.
Russia, the only European power re
maining neutral, is the only one which
will retain first-class rank.

CAUGHT BY WHITE BEANS
Sleuths Follow Trail and Finally
Come to Scene of the
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Dec. 2.— After an all
night thief chase across country in a
special train and with no better clue
than a few scattered white beans, the
Erie' railroad police yesterday recov
ered forty stolen bolts of silk worth $3,
000 and arrested four men for theft.
The Liberty Silk company shipped
the silk in a big trunk last Thursday
from Hornellsville, N. V., to their
agents in New York. An Erie car in
spector on float ■ No. 6 while crossing

broken off. The inspector climbed in
and found the empty trunk. They also
found that two bags of white beans
had been broken open and the beans
scattered, about the floor. The bags,
they figured, were used to carry off
the silk. If they could trace the scat
tered beans along the railroad track
to the place where the trail began
they would learn where the theft oc
Detectives Charles Hazlehurst and
James O. Young hurried to Hornells
ville, the shlppinpt point of the ■ silk.
Late • Saturday night they left that
town in a special train of a locomotive
and one car. They crouched upon tlifi
rear steps of the car, and, as it raced
along in the brilliant moonlight, scru
tinized the ground carefully, searching
for a trail of little white beans. Hours
passed.' No bean appeared.
For miles and miles the special train
sped on and the detectives' eyes were
blurred by the flying ground — but not
one bean gladdened their hearts. Just
as they flew past the lonesome village
of Big Flats, spots of something white
and shiny began to fleck the ground. (
"Jingo — the beans!" cried both do-i
tecllves In a. breath, and they backed j
their special up to Big Flats. There j
they searched the neighborhood and .
found that horses had been stolen on I
Thursday night from farmers named
Diimm und Wilier, living near the
Corning road. The animals cuine
limping home on Friday morning.
The detectives found a very few white
beans scattered here nnd there as they
drove rapidly south, but they were
satlsrlei that the trail was accurate.
At daybreak Monday they entered an
abandoned barn and arrested William i
Hawley and William Carey, tough look- ]
ing persons, armed with revolvers and
blackjacks. They refused to tell any
thing about themselves and the Corn
ing authorities locked them up In jail.
When the detectives searched lluw- 1
ley they found inside of his undershirt!
a Wells, Kargo & Co.'s receipt for a
trunk shipped last Friday from Corning
to. M. Meyers at b9 Bowery, New York.
Detective Hazelhurst wired the New
York pollco. Detectives Kelley, Doran
and Sullivan were sent to watch Mey-|
ers' place, which is an establishment
for the sale of pawnbrokers' goods; '
Two men drove up to 59 Uowery at
3 p. in. They lifted a heavy trunk off
a truck and' carried it Into Meyers'

100 Per Cent Per Annum
Conservative judges of realty values estimate that at the established rate of increase in the population, lots in the town of Watts
should show an increase in value of ioo per cent per annum. Many have made as high as 300 per cent in a few short months. From
a ranch and a pasture it has grown to a city of almost 2000 in less than two years, and there is every reason why it should con-
tinue to grow.
