FOILED THE TURKS
Do you know why Vienna rolls are
shaped like crescents? The story
forma one of the great "lfs" of history.
Solyman the Magniflcfeit. sultan of
Turkey, ' planned to overrun Euroe,
even as he and his Moslem predeces
sors had seized the countries of the
orient. With a mfsrury army be cap
tured the fortifipd. island of Rhodes
and invaded I luxury. antiihi!tilng the
Magyar forces at Mobucs !u lbZO) and
slaying the Hungarian king.
So successful was the first expedition
that be planned a second and more far-rc.-ubiu:;
raid i 3520. Moving on
ward alai 'st unchecked and carrying
ell before him. he captured Buda and
advanced against the city of Vienria.
All Euroe stood aghast. Nothing
Lad been able to stem the wave of
Moslem conquest. Men remembered
bow one eastern land after another
bad been seized by the Mohammedan
hordes and forced to adopt Moham
medanism as their religion. People
trembled for the fate of Christendom.
It seemed for a moment almost pos
sible that the whole eastern section of
the European continent ruiuht fall vlc
tlm to the Turk and become part of
the Moslem possessions.
To hope for clemency from Solyman
was to rely upon te mercy of the
merciless. Conquering one Christian
army and stronghold after another, the
saltan's all powerful army threatened
to carry destruction and Mohammed
anism tb.rouc'ioiit tiie continent. It
was one of fate's big movements.
On tnoved the Turks. Vienna (the?
capital of the .German empire) stood
ia their path, a seemingly frail obsta
cle between such a host aud the rest
of EurojK'. Should Vleuna fall before
the Moslem ouset the progress of the
suXan's army would be made far easier
and other lecser cities would lose heart.
The Inhabitants of Vienna were at
that time more renowned for culture
and thrift (ban for warfare. Yev- ua
&r Nicholas von Salm they gallantly
proposed to defend their city against
the foe and to fight to the last gasp for
their lmjerilel homes. The Turks
drew near, destroying Vienna's sub
urbs, and encamped close to the town
It was on Sept. 27. 1523. that the
enormous Turkish host laid siege to
Vienna. Soiyman conducting the affair
In peraou. Before risking useless loss
of life In a general assault the sultan
tried to make an entrance Into the city
by rreaua of tunnels. Ills soldiers
were sec to work with pick and spade
to dig a secret underground way Into
Vienna by which a body of men might

The cleverness of the Turkish engi
neers and the count lens workers at
their command made the task a swift
one. Here it was that an "if" inter

and perhaps Kurope as well.
Some Vienna bakers were at work

I hiring a pause in their conversation
one of the bakers happened to near the
muffled sound of digging, it seemed
to come from a 6pot not far beyond
one of the cellar walls. Guessing at

four entire days tbe Moslems assailed
the city, fresh detachments ever tak
ing the places of those who reeled back
defeated. On the Ufth day of the as
sault. Oct. 14. Solyman gave up the
attempt to crash Vienna. He with
drew sullenly from the scene of his de
feat, leaving 80.000 dead Turks on the
field. The price of conquest was for
once too high for blm.
Vienna was saved, and not only Vi
enna, but Europe. Vienna had been
Europe's barrier against the Turks
farther advance, arid tbe barrier beid
firm. The northern limit of Europe's
Turkish raids was reacued.
Once more, in later years. Vienna
was besieged by tbe Moslems, and she
again beat them off. The high tide
of suvh invasion had come and reced
ed. Eurejre at large was now forever
secure frorc this long dreaded foe.
In the moment of victory, according
to tbe account, the bakers who bad
given the alarm were not forgotten.
To commemorate the event they and
their descendants thenceforth molded
their rolls into the shape of a crescent
(the sacred emblem of Turkey). The
custom prevails to this day.
Few Americans who are used to see
ing crescent shaped Vienna rolls have
any idea how such rolls first came to
be thus twisted nor what great deed
tbe crescent form commemorates. Chi

FOLLOWED THE DIAGRAM.
TH Motorcar Tourists Rewarded the
Man Who Drew It.
An amusing practical Joke which
was played by a Canadian farmer on
a party of motorcar tourists is describ
ed in Suburban Life. The farmer had
drawn a diagram to show the automo-
bilists how to proceed through tbe lit
tle known country,
"For five miles." writes the author
of the article, "we followed tbe coun
tryman's diagram and then came to
a piece of road which was atrocious.
We climbed over Etumps and in and out
of ruts and pulleys. Grass grew In the
middle of this 'road,' showing how lit
tie it was used. At last we saw ahead
a little bouse Just at the edge of tbe
woods. We felt sure we were off the
tight road and decided to make In
quiries at the bouse.
Great was oar surprise upon drawing
up in front of the house to find our
countryman, his wife and several chil
dren out in the middle of tbe road to
meet us. They all looked at the car
with wondering eye, and the smallest
child hung to her mother's skirtaand
howled with fright. The other cnU
dren fied to the house and peeked out
of tbe window.
"Our friend tbe countryman said:
Well, I most run my horse to death to
get here before yoo did. I wanted the
kids to be sure and see this crltter.
Tbey never saw one before. I'm much
obliged to yoo. and now If you want
the right road you'll have to pull back
two miles to tbo road where yoa turn
ed in ojid go straight ahead." "
Too Much Toothbrush.
It is possible to err In tbe direction
of a too free use of the tooth r-rusb.
"Once a day for three minutes la suf
ficient.' writes a dentist In tbe Fam
ily Doctor of London. "Even In rasing
a toothbrush once a day it la better
not to rub it directly across the 6ur.
face of the teeth, but to slant it, hold
ing the point down so that It cleans
the spaces between tbe teeth as well
as the front of tbe teeth snd removes
the full force of tbe contract from the
teeth. 1 have had many patients who
have literally rubbed tbe enamel from
their teeth by tbe excessive use of a
brash. Tbe average person uses a
brush too much and not too little. la
addition to being careful with the
brush. It is also Important to see that
the bristles are soft and not bard.
Tooth powder should be used only
once a day."
