Hasty Men An Always Carious.
Did you ever stop to think what a curi
ous ohing human nature is? I'll give you
somu food for reflection. Every day on the
stret ts you'll observe men dashing along
as If their very lives depended on their
speetl. They rush madly through dense
throngs, and, although Datarally courteous
gent enien. elbow their way roughly
tbrougn groups or old men and dainty
women without a "Pardon me." Observe
those same fellows, who look as if they
were catching trains all their lives ob
serve them when the slightest thing ont of
the ordinary occurs. They are the very
first people to form the crowds that you see
in bin cities, crowds that are formed for rea
sons, very often, that would hardly tempt
a sch xlboy to lift his eyea from his books.
I experimented with this phase of human
nature the other day.
i A man stood on the top of the Ames
build ng doing some painting. Men had
stood on the top of tall buildings many
thousands of times before, and nobody had
ever paused to observe. But I wagered
with h friend that I could have a score of
peoplo watching that man in five minutes.
I simply stood still and stared. Somebody
that v as going by with the rapidity of a
professional sprinter stood stock still. He
was jcined in two minutes by half a dozen
others, and in five minutes good many
over b score had paused to Bee what the
matter was. Boston Cor. St. Louis Globe-
Chemistry has found it possible not only
to anUyze perfumes, that is the ottos or
essent.al oils, that would seem their final
resting place, but to build up substances
that hive similar odors. Rum ether, the
substance to which rum owes its perfume,
whose chemical name is too troublesome
to give, is a regular article of commerce in
Austrii. It is made by taking twelve
pound each of sulphuric acid and black
oxide i f manganese, twenty-six pounds of
alcohol and ten of strong acetio acid.
These ingredients are mixed and twelve
pints distilled from them,
j But vrate of pure ethyloxide possesses a
j delicate odor of pineapple, which, by the
addition of wine or potato spirits, may be
altered to that of strawberry and rasp
berry. .Mtnc ether, fifty grams; acetate
( of amyl and glyoerin, 100 grams each,
! with oi.e liter of purest alcohol, will imi
, tate the odor of pears, and more compli
1 cated compounds imitate the apple set.
j These are not like the perfumers' imita
tions j.pt combinations of substances
whose t ompoaition is unknown to him, but
absolute buildings up of those subtlest of
all things, dors from substances every
one of T.-hich the chemist can control and

rid, but Exhibiting; Staying rowers
That Are Significant.
LOKDOX. Sept. 8. The Dardanelles mat
ter lacks the lurid features of some of the
sensational war scares which have pre
ceded it, but it has remarkable staying
powers, and bodes worse for the peace of
Europe than many events that have
seemed from time to time to threaten im
mediate war. The uneasiness in official
circles so plainly manifest, is more omi
nous than any amount of outcry on the
part of less responsible or less well in
formed oracles. Each day biings its quota
of comment by weighty journals upon the
European situation as modified by tbe ev
ident weakening of the Berlin agreement.
Fears of English Tory Papers.
In England the tone of some of tbe Tory
papers, which are undoubtedly in touch
with the government, and epeak approxi
mately its views indicates that the ministry ,
fears that Great Britain is to be left in
the lurch, to cope with the eastern ques
tion single handed. The Globe, which
has the reputation of being an inspired
organ, contains a long editorial on the
subject, hinting gloomily at the possibil
ity and warning the powers forming the
triple alliance that they are each and all
as closely concerned in the proper solu
tion of tbe eastern question as England.
Germany and Austria Need Warning.
Germany especially, it Is pointed out.
cannot afford to let Turkey aid Russia in
extending her Asiatic dominions, for Rus
sia is already too powerful to be a good
neighbor for Germany on the east. Tbe
St. James Gazette contains a similar argu
ment addressed to the drelbund powers.
The Gazette is unquestionably a mouth
piece of the government, and the fact that
these two organs preach from an identical
text is taken to indicate that the govern
ment considers the warning to Germany,
Austria, and Italy specially needed at this
Turkey Mast Stand by Neutrality.
In Germany the same theme occupies
the attention of the leading and most in
fluential Journals. Tbe Hamburger
Xachrichten, Prince Bismarck's personal
organ defends itself, and inferentially its
great inspirer, from charges of too lenient
a feeling toward Russia. The mass of ttrs
supporters of the government among tbe
press take the ground that Turkey must
be compelled to hold Russia to the Ber a
treaty provisions in the matter of Dar
Row They Feel In Austria.
In Austria the press takes a pessimistic
view of the situation, it being difficult to
discover a way to hold the porte to an
agreement without resort to violence,
which would simply te the spark to ig
nite the general conflagration which all
so fear to start. It is a striking fact, in
deed, that the whole discussion of this
new phase of the European political situ
ation is carried on in a hopeless or fatal
istic strain, as if events were taking a
turn that must carry matters to a crisis,
irrespective of any action that might be
dictated by diplomatic sagacity.
The Premier's Probable Policy.
It is rumored that Lord Salisbury in
tends taking the initiative in calling for
another meeting of the signatory powers
for a revision, or at least a discussion, of
the treaty of Berlin, with a view either to
strengthening the weak spots or modify
ing the treaty so as to release Russia and
Turkey from their present pledges regard
ing the Balkans and the Dardanelles,
which are and have for years been vir
tually evaded. It is deemed best in influ
ential English circles to have the trea.y
abrogated or modified in this way rather
than to have it nominally in force, but
THE BRITISH LABOR CONGRESS.
Not Unanimous for Eight Hours Trouble
Over the "Loyal" Toast.
Lojtdon, Sept. 9. There is a division of
sentiment in tbe British labor congress
now in session at Xew Castle over
the eight-hour movement. In all direc
tions a keen canvass for votes is being
made on the question, and as to whether
eight honrs, if adopted as the limit of a
day's work, shall be made a legal day's
work and compulsory, or whether it shall
be left to leal trade option. The Miners
Federation, it is supposed, favor a com
pulsory eight-hour law and the National
Miners' union is understood to be opposed
A Question ot Loyalty.
At a meeting of tbe committee of ar
rangements to prepare for tbe closing
banquet there was a significant debate.
It was proposed that the "loyal" toast
should be to "Tbe Queen and Royal Fam
ily," but there were numerous objections
to the latter clause. Matters waxed very
warm for a time, until a compromise was
adopted, and the toast .will be to 'Til-!
Queen and the Country."
A Grievance Stated.
The parliamentary committee's report,
which has just been issued, sets forth that
it is to be regretted that the government
has given a considerable balance of power
to capital in the appointment of the Koyal
labor commission, whose duty it is to in
quire into the relations exising between
capital and labor, and into the best menus
of preventing strikes. The report referred
to holds that in so giving tbe balance in
tivor of capital, the government is will

trill Not Visit the Kaiser.
BERLIN", Sept. 9. An official dispatch
has been received from Copenhagen
which makes the announcement that the
czar, who is now there, would be unable
to .visit the German kaiser before his
return to Russia. This news is
considered as confirmatory of tbe
existence of an entente between Russia
and France of such a character as would
render difficult an interview betwean tua
Intoxieated with Their Success.
Paris, Sept. 9. The Temps says that
the decree of the German government re
moving the embargo on American pork is
"veritable coup de theatre," astounding
the agrarian party who believed in the
axiom that the government would never
withdraw the prohibition. Tbe pro
gressists, the Temps adds, are intoxicated
with their success, their leading delusion
being that free American pork means
free grain in the near future.
Welcomed the Kaiser as a "Guest.
Munich, Sept. 9. "i he visit of the Ger
man kaiser has proved a great success.
The friction that might have been caused
by his insisting on reviewing the Ba
varian army as emperor of Ger
many has been avoided by his arranging
to do so as the gnest of the regent. The
kaiser's reception has inspired much grat
ification in Berlin, where it was appre
hended that Bavarian particularism might
thow itself. The Bavarian troops are in
the best condition, and have been busily
preparing for the imperial review,

POPE B03 GROWS PERSONAL.
Be Calls Rev. Dr. Patton a "Mallcioui
Chicago. Sept. 9. Colonel R. G. Inger
soll was at the Grand Pacific yesterday. He
said: "We want to destroy the American
Sunday. It is a pest and a nuisance and
it always has been so. By all means the
fair must be kept open on Sunday. To
close it would Bhow us to be merely pro
vincial, not cosmopolitan. It would be
too countrified, you know. Closing the
fair Sundays would be a sort of a gum
chewing policy. You wouldn't expect
anything else from a lot of gum-chewing
chaps whose idea cf Sunday is to sit
around and get dyspepsia and wonder why
God doesn't damn them. That Is their
idea of a sacred day. Why, man, a sacred
day is that on which somebody is made
happy. If you want to make a day sacred,
make the people happy. That can be dona
to a great extent by opening the great ex
position on Sunday."
Some General Denunciation.
Referring to Dr. Patton's expression,
So much the worse for the workingman,"
Colonel Iogersoll said: "Yes, that's like
Patton; so much the worse for the work
ingman. Patton is a malicious donkey.
That's about all Patton is, a malicious
donkey. He says 'so much the worse for
the workingman,' but he does not say it
of himself. Patton is president of Prince
ton college. He has a soft job, and be
wants to hold on to it. Patton gets a
larger salary for a smaller calibre than
any man in this country. He and
the Sunday closing crowd are a narrow
minded, ignorant set who never felt a
throb of that feeling that makes up the
brotherhood of man."
NINE PERSONS POISONED.
A Mysterious Case That Is Expected to
End Fatally to All the Victims.
Belleville, Kas., Sept. 9. Nine peo
ple of this place are at the point of death
as the result of having partakan of poison
in the food served at dinner at the house
of George Gregg. Last Sunday Mr. and
Mrs. Gregg, their four children, a visiting
relative and Ira Johnson, a neighbor, sat
down to dinner. Soon after dinner they
all became violently ill. exhibiting all the
symptoms of poisoning. -
Thought To Be an Accident.
Shortly afterward the servant, who bad
in the meantime eaten dinner, also be
came ill, showing tbe same symptoms.
bmce tnen all nave crown steadily worse.
and the recovery of none of the victims is
expected. W bat tbe nature of the poison
was and how it was administered are
questions that remain to be answered.
The general belief, however, is that it
was accidental, though some believe it i
case of deliberate crime.
Going Early Into Vice.
Kew York, Sept. 9. Julius Laderman,
13 years old; William Crowley, 13 years
old; John Dooley, 9 years old, and John
Murphy, 1? rt s old, were arrested Mon
day night, as .hey had broken into the
plumbing fcujp of Edward Hughes, at StU

were found to have in their possession a
burglar's outfit, including a bag ot keys,
five saws, hammers and chisels.
