Persistent Ralns Cause Bishop of
Chester to Revive an Old
Question.
London.-This is the month of the
harvest festival, but as every crop
in the country has been seriously
damaged, if not ruined, by the per
sistent rains, it is not surprising that
a bishop has raised the question of
"Ought we pray for fine weather?"'
In a letter to the rural deans of his
diocese the bishop of Chester dis
cusses the appropriateness of harvest
festivals in such a Jeason, says a Lon
don letter.
"The persistent rains which have
damaged our crops," says the bishop,
"cannot but revive the old questions.
'In such a year is it wise to hold
harvest festivals? Can we expect
farmers to give special thanks when
they have so little to be thankful for?
With our greatly enlarged knowledge
of meteorology, what reason or real

weather?"

university, either pa.lallly or wholly
support themselves d'arlog the last
college year according to the first an
nual report of the bureau of self-help.
Of this number six men came to col

fifty reported at the oiub'ing of the

the father oi the young w:oan hp

Casey and the young woman were
taken into Judge Torrison's c-u'rt for
the purpose of breaking up tie love

After hearing the story from the
young couple, Judge Torrison pleaded
for their happiness, the lawyers
pleaded and the baliff pleaded, and
finally Papa Sobaka admitted that
"it might as well be."
Everyone kissed or shook hands
with the bride-to-be as the curtain

OPTIC AND ALGER BARRED
Books Which Were Considered Classic
Quarter Century Ago now Held
Undesirable.
Washington.-Books such as those
by Oliver Optic and Alger, which
parents of a quarter of a century ago
advocated to their children as suitable
reading, have been placed in the
•"horrible example" class by the dis
trict public library commission.
The tales and romances that de
lighted the children of two decades
and more ago have been classed as
"undesirable" along with five-cent
novels of the "penny-dreadful" type.
The commission bases its condemna
tion of the old-time children's
classics on the ground of mediocrity
and not by reason of any vicious
ness.

He suggests that there is sounder
piety in accepting submissively san
shine and rain, even when they seem
unreasonable and excessive. The pe,
tition. "Give us this day our daily
bread," necessarily involves prayer
for seasonable weathep, and Doctor
Jayne submits that "the thing
most needful Is habitual prayer
for seasonable weather." He main
tains that people should be slow in
asking for changes of weather, as we
can see but a little way ahead, and
weather that now looks disastrous
may in the long ran assume a kind
lier aspect.
He finds comfort in the thought that
"through the friendly commerce of
nations the harvests of the world are
ours, and that " the price of food,
though it may rise, will not rise to
famlne heights, as it would if we were
dependent upon our own resoures
alone." This part of the biebop's let

argument for "ftree trade."

was the remark made not long ago
by a man whose whole life is spent
in mechanical and scientific experl
ment and who would be the last you'
would think to be touched by the
very slightest breath of superstition.
Many airmen are evidently of the
same opinion, for they pin their faith
on the oddest of charms, and many of
them have the strongest, though often
secret, belief in omens, mascots and
luck bringers, says Answers.

Nations Are Peevish. c
If the American tourist carries his
camera to Europe with him he must
be careful to avoid photographing per

ly government buildings, forts, docks
and ships without permission. Many
tourists have got themselves into
much trouble in this way. especially in V
Russia, where the restrictions are un
usually rigid and in Germany, also.
A few years ago Germany passed a
special bill through the reichstag deal

heavy penalties upon those who in- o
fringe the regulations. Damages to
the amount of $1.500. with a fine of d
$250, or two Ltonths' imprisonment.

In Portugal the authorities are cu
riously suspicious. A gentleman re- e
oently wrote to a London paper say- a'

EUROPEAN "SPY" SWINDLER
Bogus Plans of Mobilization and War
Made Profitable, According to
German Publisher.
London.-A message from Berlin
publishes the details of an extraordi
nary "spy" swindle by which several
European governments have been im
posed upon, according to the Deutsche
Mittage Zeitung.
A certain Glitch bought a few Ger
man military handbooks, ordnance
maps and time tables relating to the
German provinces near 'the French
frontier and succeeded with their aid
in concocting a "mobilization plan" of
the Germany army, to be used tin the
event of war breaking out with
France.
He added elaborate notes and in
vented a secret cipher.
Glitch dispatched his forgeries to
the general staff of the French army,
dating them from Berlin. He said he
must bhave the documents back in
forty-eight hours. In due course the
plans came back with £50 and a re
quest for more. Then Glitch forged
similar documents for the use of Raus
sia. and these were returned to him
with £100.
As the officials of the two general
staffs asked for still more documents.
Glitch worked out a secret plan of a
German mobilization against Russia.
France and England. In this plan it
was stated that Austria would send
an army to the Russian frontier, and
that the German emperor would take

GERMAN SOCIALISTS GAINING
GERMAN SOCIALISTS GAINING
Result of Chemnita Convention Gives
Rude Awakening to the
Conservatives.
Berlin.-The result of the Socialists
convention at Chemnits gave a rude
awakening to German conservatlves
who had maintained that the Socialist
party was not dangerous in spite of
its great numbers, because it was and
wou'd remain a minority in the Ger
man nation.
The convention not only did much
to unite the party. but also, by falling
to condemn the alliance with the radi
cal party for the reballotings in the re
cent elections, left open the door for
cooperations with Nonsocialist parties
in coming elections.
Socialists with progressive allies
may become strong enough to con
trol the German parliament, though
they themselves may never emerge
from the minority.
