THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1913.
M. Henri Cordlcr In the Journal des
Savants calls attention to a proof of
the discovery of America In the elev
enth century which has hitherto pass
ed unnoticed. In the saga of Eric the
Red It Is said that when Thoriln Karl
sefne returned from "Markland," or
Newfoundland, In 1005, ho took back
to Greenland with him two children
from the northern land of the Skrao
lings, and four words of their lan
guage nro preserved In the saga. These
words were thought by the Groenlnnd
ers to bo the names of the children's
parents or chiefs, but M. Cordlcr shows
that they can bo traced to Eskimo
phrases of the present day, two of
ihera meaning something like "wait a
moment" and "the northern Islands"
respectively. To this he Joins the
statement of Professor Waldemar Jo
cheson of St. Petersburg that the sci
entific expedition sent by F. P. Itla
traschlnskl to Kamchatka has proved
the morphological connection of the
Kamchatkan language with several
Indian dialects of North America. This
derives additional Interest from the
news recently from America of the
discovery by V. Stcfansson of tribes of
white Eskimos showing mauy traces
of Norse descent on the Bhores of Coro
nation gulf. London Athenaeum.
Rubber Wings For Ships.
Pelllco Portello, a Brazilian, pro
poses to save sinking ships by means
of rubber wings. Ills Invention Is on
exhibition In Paris. Tho Idea Is not to
make a vessel fly, but merely to keep
It afloat after It has been hit by an
Iceberg, for Instance, as In the TItnnlc's
tragic predicament. Portello's Idea is
that every ship should be equipped with
a lifebelt of rubber wings or sacks,
stretching around the craft. These
wings, ho says, could bo filled with air
by moans of special pumps at almost
a minute's warning. The wings, he
asserts, would cost comparatively lit
tle, and, unlnflated, would be a scarce
ly noticeable incumbrance to tho ship.
No steamship or other vessel thus
equipped, it is declared by Portello,
could sink except In a leisurely way,
allowing the passengers and crew am
ple time to escape In the small boats
and rafts. Naval experts express In
terest In tho young Brazilian's model,
but have made no pronouncement as
to Its feasibility. Philadelphia Record
Russia and Slavjanski.
Under tho headline "How Russia Re
wards Her Artists" the Berliner Tnge-
Matt tells the sad story of Agevenow
Slavjanski, who about twenty years
ago organized an orchestra and in a
tour of Germany and Austria Intro
duced to tho musical world the folk
music of Russia, which up to that time
had received only slight and mediocre
interpretation. "His efforts," says the
account, "wero successful, and he prof
ited financially to such an extent that
ho bought and paid for nn estate near
Moscow. Then, at tho invitation of the
czar, he took his company to tho exbl
bltlon at Nizhni-Novgorod at tremen
dous expense, and when he asked to be
compensated his request was Ignored
by the government His estate was
sold for debt, an attack of heart fall'
uro caused the musician's death, and
today his family is in dire poverty."
The Enemy Within the Gates.
Nearly every European capital has
seen tho enemy within Its gates during
the last 1G0 years. Berlin was pene
trated by the Austrtans in 1757 and the
Russians in 17C0 and was occupied by
tho French from October, 1600, to Do
cember, 1808. Rome was occupied by
tho Frcnoh in 1808 and 18-10. Vienna
was occupied by tho French In 1S05
and 1800, and Moscow In 1812, Lisbon
in 1807 and Madrid in 1808. Paris was
entered by tho allies in 1814 and 1815
and by the Germans in 1871. Copeu
hagen was bombarded by the British
in 1807. Athens was occupied by the
Turks In 1820. Belgrade was captured
by tho Servians from tho Turks in
1807, Sofia was taken by the Russians
in 1820 and 1878, while Bukharest was
occupied by the Russians In 1828 and
1853 and by the Austrlans in 1854.
New York's Opium Fiends
New York city is now the largest con
sumcr of smoking opium In tho world.
It has surpassed tho record of any Chi
nese city, not only in tho quantity used
or the number of mon and women ad
dieted to tho habit, but also in tho in
tensity and tho passion with which the
drug is consumed. Thero are at least
00,000 opium smokers in New York
city. This is the conservative estimate
of men whoso duty it is to wago a
daily, if vain, strugglo against tho
growing vice. And they declare that
this numbor is so much moro appalling
becauso of tho fact that the city is
drug ridden nnd consumes more co
calnc, morphlno nnd other derivatives
of opium than any other municipality
in the world, with tho possible ex
ception of Paris. New York Tribune

The management of tho Tecumseh

Thorpe is a very efficient hockey player,
and, since thero Is a scarcity of good

warded to the Indian.
It Is reported that Thorpe will not
turn professional unless he receives an
ironbound contract calling for a hand
When questioned W. J. Belllngham,

Is Coulon Going Back?
A Chicago friend of Johnny Conlon,
a man who has backed him In many
of his fights, says that he believes lit
tle Johnny Is nearing tho end of his
string as a bantamweight champion.
"Coulon has been in tho game eight
years now," he said, "and during the
last year has lost n little something
more In each of his battles.
"With Kid Williams, Eddie Morgan
of England, Charley Ledoux of France
and Eddie Campl of the coast surging
to the front, It Is hard to see how Cou
lon can withstand the charge of all
four combined. Some one of them Is
bound to take his measure."

By ELIZABETH WEED
Dear old motherly Mrs. Crutkshank
was all heart Sho took mo Into her
houso at tho time of my mother's
death and cared for me. She said It
was because sho was lonely, her son
being a sailor and away from her
nearly all the time, and that I was
very good to stay with her and all
that It was no use to combat her as
to this, and I saw that to remind her
continually of my obligation distressed
her, so I let her have her say In the
matter. Sho was a funny little body,
full of crotchets, and ono must humor
Shortly before Mrs. Crulkshank took
mo in her son Albert sailed on a voy-
nge, to be gone three years. I was
seventeen then, Just tho ago to bo
thinking of a lover, nnd his photo
graph hanging in tho parlor caught my
fancy. It represented a boy of eight- I
ccn In sailor costume, his collar rolling I
away from his neck, his hair tumbled I
and n frank, fearless face. Tho old
lady never tired of talking to mo about
him and ono dny said to mo:
"If you'll bo a good girl and stay
with me till he comes back, perhaps
I'll give him to you If you want him."
I smiled at this way of putting it and
told her that any girl who wouldn't
want such a fine looking fellow as that
wouldn't deserve to have a husband
When tho time came round for Bert
to be coming home ho wrote his moth
er that he had been promoted to bo
first mate and he hoped it wouldn't bo
long before he would have a ship of
his own. His mother read me this part
of the letter with every appearance
that she considered mo interested In
It on my own account, nnd I didn't dis
turb her In her opinion.
As bad luck would have it several
months before Bert's return I was at
tacked by a fever which nearly car
ried mo off. If I was obliged to Mrs.
Crulkshank before the obligation was
now Increased a hundredfold, for sho
hung over me as If I had been her
own daughter and tho only one at that.
Alas! When tho fever luft mo it
took my hnlr with It leaving me as
bald as a billiard ball. True, my hair
began to grow again nnd Just- before
Albert's arrival was about half an
Inch long nil over my head. I could
see that this troubled Mrs. Crulkshank
Immensely, for my hair was my most
attractive feature, and without It I at
least considered myself a very homely
girl. She declared that I was more
attractive than ever, but since my loss
troubled me It must be hidden till tho
hair grew again to its wonted length
I would wear a wig.
Mrs. Crulkshank went to the city
one day to procure tho article and
came home with ono whoso color was
unique. The nearest word by which
to describe it Is sorrel. I told the good
lady that It was beautiful, which com
forted her greatly, for sho said It had
been offered to her for half price and
she feared the reduction was owing to
its color. I assured her that It match
ed my complexion exactly.
By tho time Bert arrived I was up
and about. Every now and then I
would catch sight of myself In a mir
ror and would be astonished, even
shocked, at my appearance. My pallor
was heightened by my wig, nnd the
nppearanco was like an old woman
who had been trying to make herself
look young. But I refrained from say
ing n derogatory word to tho mother
of the boy whom I was to attract. In
deed, I pretended to bo very much
pleased with myself.
The result was -what might havo
been expected. Mrs. Crulkshank had
mentioned mo in her letters to her son,
commending me for a beauty, and had
unfortunately spoken of my "tresses"
as my chief physical attraction. When
ho met mo he was so astonished at tho
color of my head covering that his eyes
were glued to it in a fixed stare. Then
he shook hands with me, but thero
was no warmth in his grip. It was
plain to both his mother nnd me that
he had met with a great disappoint
ment. After remaining nt home a few days
submitting to his mother's caresses ho
made an excuse to get nway to tho
city, saying that ho must go on busi
ness for tho ship. I could see that his
mother was greatly disappointed at the
111 success of her plan for keeping him
at homo by offering mo as an attrac
tion. He said ho would bo away a
month, and on his return would sail
again. His mother resigned herself to
what she could not help, and we were
Ono night when wo had gone to bed
thero came a rap at the front door.
Getting out of bed I donned a dressing
gown nnd without putting on my wig
went downstairs with a lighted candle
to seo what was wanted. Opening the
door thero stood Bert.
As at our first meeting his gaze was
fixed upon my hair, but now my own
hair, and Instead of disappointment I
saw admiration. My hair is naturally
kinky, and It was now long enough to
stand in little ripples.
"For heaven's sake!" he exclaimed.
"What's becomo of tho sorrel?"
I burst into a laugh, and called to his
mother that her boy had returned. (
Bert's manner toward mo was com
pletely changed. He did not sail as
expected, having been ottered a ship
of his own, and when he did Ball bo
took his mother and his wife with him,
I being the wife. It is needless to say
that the old lady was delighted, nnd
as for me well, I waa by no means dls.
