tTHE LEADING GROCER4
A Literary Gruvcyard.
Tho University of Cambridge, Eng
land, has recently secured a most inter
esting find of ancient documeuts relat
ing to the Bible and anoicnt Jowisb
literature. This was in the old "Qeui
zah" at Cairo, Egypt. Tho term as ap
plied to books means much the sarno as
bnrial in a cemetery means to human
bodies. It was a Talmudic idea that
whon n piece of writing is worn out
with much uso its eoul has gono and
that tho corpse should bo saved from
profanation. So tho Genizah or bnrial
placo extended its protection in timo to
books defective or worn ont and books
declared to bo of apocryphal credence
as well as those of rocognized value, in
tho eyes of Jows. In addition to these,
the Gonizah was tho depository of a
class of writings of tho greatest valno
in Hebrew history, being legal oon
traots and decisions of all kinds, mar
xiago and divoroo papers and a great
variety of documents relating to the so
cial life of tho period extonding from
200 B. 0. to 1000 A. D. So tho institu
tion was a lumber room and a record
offlco. This battlefiold of books, full of
tho dislocated fragments of ancient
knowletlgo, was found in an anoiqnt
Coptic church, which had also boon at
ono timo a Mohammedan inogtjuo and
was oxplorod by permission of tho chief
rabbi of Cairo. Tho cbcwceEt of tho docu
ments, specially thft3b bearing on tho
ancient HebroYyexts of tho Biblo and
on tho Tnhuud and Torah or prayer rit
uals of tJrio Jews, numbering in all some
4UUutj pieces, Iwvo bocomo tno prop
erty of an English university.
'" Tho discovory and utilization of those
graveyards of anoint knowledgo havo
been ono of tho striking literary phe
nomena of this century. It was during
Napoleon's expedition to Egypt that
Champollion discovered tho Rosotta
stone, through tho trilingual inscrip
tions on which tho genius of that scien
tist, aesisted by tho not less aouto genius
of Br. Thomas Young of England, dis
covered in course of timo the secrets of
tho hieroglyphics, and thus opened to
tho world a marvelous now field of
knowledgo. Not many years aftor tho
key of tho cunoiform inscriptions of
Assyria and Babylonia was found and
in tho ruins of their ancient oities were
unearthod tho innumorablo books of
brick which havo revealed thotruofaots
of another obsouro period of human his
tory. These tombs of antiquo knowledgo
havo boen as yet very imporfootly ex
plored and most interesting results may
bo oxpected in tho futuro as each year
adds something to intelligent research.
Tho Genizah of Cairo, with its dusty
fragments which pioco out tho imper
fections and gaps in tho intellectual
history of tho raco, farnishos another
phaso of tho same sort of investigation.
Stamping Out Consumption.
A Tory important and authoritativo
statement ia mado by an influential
medical journal of London that tabor
oulosifl, or what is commonly known as
pulmonary consumption, is in a fair
way to bo stamped out in tho futuro by
eoienco. In proof of this tho writer ad
duces figures to show that the diminu
tion in mortality from this dread dis
ease is regular and progressive. In sock
ing for the causos of this doclino it is
found that tho proventive sanitary
measures in the Inspection of beef and
milk play an important part, whilo tho
growing inclination to livo outdoors in
tho fresh air and the sproad of outdoor
sports, with bottor ventilation and less
overcrowding, aro important aids. Final
ly methods of treatment aro immensely
improved in tho samo ratio as tho stand
ards of living, and the facilities with
which persons can escapo to benign cli
mates havo muoh to do with tho results.
Fifty years ago civilization without
pulmonary consumption would havo
boen an idlo dream, but it is now ono
of thoso droams which both rational
scienco and statistics doolaro is slowly
coming to bo a fact. It is curious to ob
serve that in all our rejoicing ovor the
inventions of lifo destroying machines
and spaco killing devicos this superb
triumph of eoienoe, worth rnoro to- the
race than all the achievements'' of the
engineers, has not added ,as'it should
have dono to the generacatisfaction.
Signs multiply that four of the treaty
powers hav'como to something like a
quiet understanding with roferenco to
the personal responsibility of tho sultan
of Turkey in tho matter of Christian
massacres. It is not at all probable that
anything liko an understanding has or
very soon will be arrived at in regard
to what shall bo dono with tho sick
man and his domain, but it looks very
muoh as if, ponding any discussion of
territorial matters or of who shall bo
mastor of tho orient, England, France,
Russia and Germany have agreed to
draw tho line pretty tight on some of
tho murderous pashas of tho sultan.
Tho occupation of Oreto in spito of tho
diplomatic deceits and Turkish delays,
the energy with which tho British ad
mirals carried one thoir orders, and,
finally, tho sending of Princo Goorgo of
Greeco to Crete as a high commissioner,
notwithstanding the nppoals of tho sul
tan, seem to indicate that Europe has
about grown tired of tho perfidy and
infamy that oost annually so many in
nocent lives. Whatever allianoos diplo
macy may mako with the Mohammedan,
the sentiment -of Europo is too strong
(o permit hiui to go on killing ad in
terim. The natives of Asia and Africa aro
constantly being reminded of the fact
that by tho European powers they are
regardod merely as squatters. Wash

An Englieh critio has something of
interest to eay about tho poetry of our
opooh in tho London Spectator. Among
other things ho writes: " Whether Ton
nyson, who threw back with almost tho
clearness of an eoho the troubles and
aspirations of his time, will ultimately
keop tho placo givon him by his con
temporaries ie somewhat doubtful. Set
ting aside- his lyrics, many of them of
quito supremo quality, wo find in the
gonornl body of his work too littlo per
haps of that primitive force, that world
outlook, which alone enablos verso to
sustain the siege of timo; but, bo this
ns it may, Tennyson has certain definito
and obvious qualities of poetry which
can bo appraised and valuod. Tho same
remark applies to Swinburno. If he
lives ultimately, it will be by a lyrical
tempostuousness and 6heer mastery over
words rather than by any interpreta
tion of lifo, either contemporary or gen
eral. Arnold has touched on vital issues
of his timo with a gentler and oven
surer voico than Tennyson, but it must
bo admitted that ho, too, lacks some
thing of primitivo forco, and his rango
is somewhat narrow for that of a great
That interpretation of lifo is tho high
est test of tho great poet is beyond dis
pute, but there may be doubt just what
"interpretation of lifo and primitivo
forco" mean in this connection. If in
terpretation of lifo along tho great lines
of primitivo and universal thought is
tho test, tboro are only two or tbreo
great poots of tho English race. In such
a test thoro would bo exclusion of many
vhoe names tho world will not let die.
When wo havo named Shakespeare,
Dante, Goethe and Milton, it will be
difficult to find more of these universal
poets in modern ages. Rudyard Kipling
has shown his amazing grasp over cer
tain primitivo and nuiversal emotions,
but his range is so limited that he seems
to have no apprehension of an immense
rango of sympathies of tho highest im
portance in lifo. If Tennyson has proved
his organic hold on all tho multiform
aspects of this age of intellectual strug
gle and aspiration and brings a sure
note of musio from overy key, it is as
much as to say that ho is universal, for
the universal must always defino itself
in the particular. Tho particular in
eaoh ago, with all its vast aggregation
and clashing of forces, constitutes all
that there is in tho universal which
lies to our hands. No poet has been eo
truo to tho truth in this as Tennyson.
He is tho voico of universal aspiration,
of hope, of tolerant and loving sym
pathy. The opening stanza of "In Me
moriam" sums up tho man and his ideal:
I hold it ono with him who sings
On one clear harp of many tones
That mon may rise, on stepping stonoa
Of their dead selves to higher things.

A foul breath is ono of tbo greatest afflictions
that a man or woman can bavo. An affliction
not only to themselves, but to thoso with whom
they como in contact. A foul breath Is a great
discourager of affection. It would bo probably
more so if people only realized Just what bad
breath means. Bad breath is ono of the symr
toms of constipation. Bomo of tho other symp
toms ato sour stomach, lobs of appetite, sick and
bilious headache, dizziness, heartburn and dis
tress after eating. These things mean indiges

The Follies of Fashion.
Not long ago a play from tho pen of
an eminent dramatist was producod in
New York city tho action of which
was supposed to tako placo in tho early
sixties, and tbo management restored
tho costumes then worn by our women,
which included tbo enormous balloon
hoopskirts and tho chignons of that
period. So absurd did theso artioles of
dross appear to tho audieuco that dur
ing tbo first aotof the play tbo laughter
of tho speotators threatened to ruin tho
piece. Although thoro was no satire in
tended in tho drama, it really becamo
tho most bitter of all satires upon fash
ion, for horo wore tho women of ono
generation treating with tho wildest
ridioulo tho costumes of a preceding
generation which their mothers had
worn and which were thought at tho
timo to bo oomely and proper. Nor was
thero any reason to doubt that tho next
generation would laugh iteolf into hys
terica at tbo dresses which had assem
bled in that thoater to see tho play.
Nothing liko this incident has ocourrcd
in our timo to show how hollow and
uncertain a thing fashion is, and it
really gives somo point to tbo French
wittioism which deolares that woman
on tho stago no longer attraots attention
by the olothos sho puts on, bnt only by
tho olothos sho takes oil.
Is Society Getting Tired?
A fow representative sooicty women
in Washington havo como to the conclu
sion that tho domands of fashionable"
lifo aro threatening their health. Ono of
them, who appears to havo added cour-
ago to investigation, has found that the
womon who do thoir whole social duty
in the national capital cannot got enough
sleop. Sho says that lato hours, lato Bup
pors and prolonged excitement not only
soriously invade tho hours of nooessary
rest, but impair the appotite and un
string tho nerves. Although this is no
now discovery and has, in faot, beon
preaobed by medical men for at least
two centuries, never before has tho dia
oovory and tho protest come from soci
ety itsolf. Herotoforo tho fashionablo
woman has been quito willing to lot her
stomaoh and hor norvos pay tho natural
penalty if sho oould roap tho oxaitement
by tbo way. That she is growing tired
of it all is a very wholesomu sign and
may bo olassed as one of tho results of
woman's larger education and broader
Qhrsioal freedom. She has learned to
grow physioally weary with puro out
door oxeroise, and naturally enough that
unfits her for the feverish pleasures of
