Loinoi, April 20. The situation of the
Iluisla-Algb.au question has again become
rery serious, owing to Russia Increasing her
demands to such an client as It wl 1 be Im
possible lor England to accept. It
Is now (eared that Russia has
orer stepped the bounds of British
forbearance, as it is asserted on high author
ity that England will never succumb to the
later demands of the Russian Premier.
A large number o( important dispatches
passed between the Kcgllsh and Russian for

An Ontnliln View.
Viuva, April 20. Notwithstanding the
peaceful tendencies reported from St. Peters
burg and London, the situation as viewed
from Constantinople still points toward. the
fact that Russia assuredly means to touch the
utmost limit ot British forbearance belore she
will consent to conclude any arrangements
for avoiding wars. A very snre d Russian
merchant who has extensive dealings in
Southern Ruesia remarked: ' Dj you
think we have moved one hundred and fifty
thousand men to the shores of the Caspian to
obtain tntrely a strip of desert? Dou't put
faith in newspaper reports. We mean war
unless England timidly grants all we have
wanted. As lor Kemaroff, government will
never recall him."

Bugle Calls In the I'iiuIIhIi Army.
AH military matters nro brought,
nowadays, much mord frequently to tlio
eyes ntnl cars of tho general public than
was the, c.iso fortnnrly, nnd perhaps
hardly n fntitlly exists in village or town
but lias Homo connection with members
of either tho tegular nrtny, tho militia
or tho volunteers. During tbo Summer
months, when i amps of instruction aro
so frequently formed, tho sound of tho
buglo testified to tho presenco of the
civilian army throughout tho length
and bicadth of the lurid, nnd tho inhab
itants of a garrison town are in tho
same way continually reminded of the
presenco of regular troops by tho notes
of the bugle, tlio calls being the name,
whether addressed to the volunteers in
camp or to tlio inmates of a town bar
rack. A bhoit explanation of them may
bo found intoiesfing to those who fre
quently hear them.
Considering tho length of some of tho
calls, it may surprise tho reader to hear
that tbcie are only flvo ilitlelent notes
played on tlio bugle, and, though that
is tho case, tho language of tho instru
ment is not nt all limited. A language
with only five words might bo thought
easy to learn, and yet tlio ilitl'crcnt ar
rangements of thesu "words" ("sen
tences," as I may call them) are end
less. It is. indeed, a ery necessary
part of n soldier's training to learn the
language of the bugle, and even un
musical men soon acquire it. For, in
the first place, the samo "calls" sound
much about the snio time each day a
hungry lccruit, for instance, does not
tako long to rccognizo the "Dinner
Hnglc," nor does ho-carolcss aoldier
forget tho summons to extra drill, much
ns no might wish to do so. 'J ho men
in their barrack rooms, too, often asso
ciate words with tlio notes of tho I uglo
ami that is a help to remember the
meaning of the sounds heard.
There nro altogether over sixty differ
ent calls in constant use, but it would
certainly only puIo my readers and
occupy too much space wero I to give
half of them heie. Sol will take tho
commonest of them, in tho order in
which they might bu expected to occur
in any one day, either in a barrack or
camp; and if .my one wishes for a fur
tlior acquaintance with tlio language of
tho bugle ho cau get it by buying a
copy of tlio lcgulation manual. (Jus

Lojtoon, April 20. If tlicro Is to bo no
Dardanelles for the English there will be
no loan for the Turks. That Is tho most
practical outcome likely to result from tha
Austro-Uermnti notification to Turkey, that
if English or Russian war vessels aro al
lowed to pass between tlielllack Sea and the
Mediterranean the treaty of Berlin will
bo regnrded as annulled. As far as this Is
a threat to Turkey, It Is futile, for there Is
nothing that Turkey would witness with
greater complicity than the annullmcnt of
tho treaty oflicrlln, which dismembered her
empire by slashing off certain northern de
pendencies. Tha closing of the Dardanelles against
England would doubtless bo vpry ngreeabie
to the Continental powers, as It would pre
vent a repetition of the offensUo siiectaclo
presented to them when Lord Beaconstleld
sent his licet with guns shotted and decks
cleared for action to Constantinople, during
the Turco-Hiisslan war, at tho iiicmorablo

Despite their wishes, howover, there Is

the resistance to the passage of the Dardan

Tho scent Is beginning at the real object

Much jealousy has been caused In certain
