1JT of his fields of roses, where
the precious attar distills its
fragranoe in the balmy air: out
of his orchards of purple plums; out
of his silk plantations and his waving
seas 'of tasseled corn; down from his

mountains, the Bulgar has suddenly
strode before the world's astonished
eyes, with the sword of Mars in his
hand and the -wings of victory flut

Like a thunderbolt he has de
mollshed tradition. In two weeks he
has changed the face of Europe. In
one withering campaign he has flung
the shredded banner of the Turk back
upon the trembling cusps of the golden
horn! What all Christendom could
not accomplish in six centuries, he has
achieved before the autumn moon that
shone over his first victory could re
turn again in her circled orb! He has
filled Islam wfth the first terror that
has shivered through its vein since
the cry of "Allah akbar!" began to re
sound under the domes of Santa So
phia. Could even we, looking on across
the ocean, with patience, see him rob
bed of the fruits of his victory? Once
achieved, could any power really rob
him of those fruits?
And who is the Bulgar. this new
phenomenon in the human arena?
The population of Bulgaria, at the
latest census, -was something over four
millions less than ' the population of
the city of New York. Of these,
about three and a quarter millions
are Bulgars. Yet, If reports are not
exaggerated they have put two hun

Why congress appropriated only
3750,000 for the new service, when the
' cost of 70,000 scales required will be
from $300,000 to 3400,000, and the pur

It will be necessary that additional

available on June 30. Already post
