hardest fights in the history of the

than the politicians.
An International Incident.
It i- very likely that the kidnaping
of Ion Pardicardis by the Berber chief
tain Raisuli will lead up to an inter
national incident of grae importance.
The terms submitted by the kidnaper
to Consul Gummere, at Tangier, are:
(I) That the sultan of Morocco with
draw his forces from the dislrict in
which Raisalfs hand operates; (2)
that the governors of Tangier and Pea
pay a heavy ransom for the release of
the American and his English fellow
prisoner; (.') that Baianli and his fol
lowers have immunity from punish
ment for the kidnaping, and (4) that
the United states and Great Britain
solemnly guarantee the observance of
these conditions by the Moorish gov
ernment. It is stated that the presi
dent and Secretary Hay agree in the
opinion that these terms cannot lie
met. Aside from the Indignity in
volved, the granting of the conditions
would be equivalent to forcing ihe
sultan t abdicate his sovereignty
over a considerable part of Moorish
territory in favor of a robber.
An alternative course of action,
however, is not so easily devised. A
force of marine- and bluejackets

difficult task than is anticipated. Ten
years or so ago, when trouble arose
between Spain ami the Kiflian tribes

to send Gen. Martini- Campos and a
Spanish army to Africa in order to
subdue them, and the job was not
finished until after many months of
hard fighting. A landing party from
our warships might he sufficient, if
nothing more were to he done than to
coerce the sultan and the Moorish
authorities into action; hut the good

DAILY SHORT STORY
Milestones in Two Lives.
Russell Dubois and Howard Ilurley
were college chums. They were con
tinually "splitting hairs" in argument.
and one of their bones of contention
was this: Dubois claimed that the
most valuable capital one could strive
for was money' or what could be sold
for money. Hurley's view was that
an especial skill in some one line was
a better equipment for a younz man
than money. W hen they were grad
uated each determined to act on his
favorite principle, and it was arranged
between them that they should meet.
dine together and compare notes every
ten years. Dubois started in business
with $20,000. Hurley lost three years
in the race in studying the profession
of medicine. Dubois was remembered
by his fellow students as a man who
was rather niggardly in his expendi
tures. Hurley as conspicuous only for
a singular fancy for dissecting cuts.
At the end of the first decade the
friends met as they had agreed and
compared notes. Inibols reported that
he could not tell what gain he Had
made, since whatever It was had gone
into his business. Hurley was a coun
try doctor, managing to scrape out of
his practice $S0O or $fW0 a year. Du
bois offered to pay for the dinner, hut
Hurley would not permit. He had laid
up nothing, but he had some loose
change In his pocket, and even this
bit of cash he didn't seem to value.
He was interested only, as Dubois ox-
pressed it, in his "bone saws and
At the second meeting, ten years
later, the condition of both men had
much Improved, though the advantage
was largely in favor of Dubois. There
had been a financial panic which ho
had weathered successfully, and, hav
ing the means to buy things that were
cheap, he had been able to reap the
benefit of the rise In short, lie was
getting rich. "Howard," he said, "you
professional men can got rich as easily
as we business men if you like. All
you have to do is to get a little 'nest
egg,' watch your chance, buy thinga
when they are cheap and sell them
wheuethey are high."
But Hurley was not interested. He
had removed from the country to the
city and had need for more cash than
he could scrape together to live. True
to his youthful idea that skill In one
given line was his most valuable capi
tal, he had adopted a medical specialty.
He had become fascinated with the
study of bacteriology. Ills specialty
was rather a scientific than a practical
one, for n great deal of study of germs
moat be made before attaining practi
cal results. At this second meeting
both men were forty years of age. Du
bois was rich and, though tied down to
his business, could retire at any time
and live at his ease. Hurley wes "In
love with his bugs." ns Dubois put It,
"but an ass in getting on."
The third decade rolled around, and
when they met both were In far better
condition than ever before. Dubois had
made a groat deal of money from the
continued prosperity follow-but the pan
ic, in which he had bought "cheap."
He told his friend that the Increased
demand for American productions had
changed the business complexion of
the country, and be believed there
would be a longer period of consump
tion than ever before. Ho great was
his faith that he had continued to buy
such goods as wore a part of his busi
ness so long as he could raise money
to do so. He offered to invest some
money for Hurley, but Hurley hadn't
any to invest. What little he had he
had Invested In what Dubois called a
"bug hatchery" that is, he had built
him a house in which to colonize
The friends had one more meeting
and only one. Hurley paid for the din
ner. Dubois had followed the upward
turn of values till suddenly the balloon
collapsed. This was live years before
this fourth decennial meeting. His for
tune was gone and so much more that
there was no hope of his ever getting
on his feet again. He had lost his grip
and was in great poverty.
Meanwhile during the past decade
Hurley's "study of bugs" had turned
Into what he called, using his friends'
nomenclature for his laboratory, a
"hatchery of funds." He had become
an authority on the cause of diseases
and had produced an antitoxin for
one prevalent malady. He gave ids
discovery to the profession, but
wealthy people came to think that If
Dr. Hurley knew so much about the
germs that caused disease he must
know all aliout the cure of disease.
At any rate, they all wanted his serv
ices and were willing to pay any price
for them. Money making was not In
Ihe doctor's line, but. with people send
ing him checks for enormous amounts
In addition to his bills, bow could he
help growing rich? He was very kind
to Dubois, sending him a check for his
necessities every month and would
have done more had Duliois accepted.
Dubois lost his health at the time of
his failure and never recovered it. He
died at the very time that his friend
was doing his best work and coining
money he could not well turn aside.
During the last decennial dinner the
friends had together Dr. Hurley sum
med up the result of their experience.
"Two swallows don't make a sum
mer. Our cases are but two illustra
tions. You were happy in making
money, I in "hatching bogs,' as you
call it. Property, especially that In
