Innocent spectators. Thero are more than

When Montenegro attempted to occupy a

A Criticism of n Literary Critic.
KEARNEY. Neb., Nov. 13,-To tho Edl-
tor of The Bee: An art lover, gazing
upon a piece of exquisite work by Cellanl,
would hardly say: "This Is the work
of a blackguard, therefore I can see no
beauty in Us execution." A man like that
would hardly be considered a. competent
art critic. And so. In literature, unless
one la writing u btorraphy, one would
scarcely bring the author's personal
Idiosyncraclcs Into a literary critique of
his writings. It Is for this reason that
I consider Prof. Grummann's lecture on
August Strtndberg as ot little value from
a literary standpoint.
Shakespeare, described by II. A. Talne,
doubtless the world's greatest literary
critic, as "tho most creatlvo mind ever
engaged In the exact copy of details of
actual existence," Is also In the same
paragraph described aa "immoral. In
spired, superior to reason by the sudden
revelation of Its seer's madness" but M.
Talne does not dwell upon this, nor quote
from "Venus and Adonis or 'The Rape
of Lucrece." Instead of from "Hamlet" or
"Richard 111" to give force to Shakes
No one familiar with the writings of
Strlndberg can deny the genius ot the
author, the. beauty of his languago and
the power of Ids Imagination. Like so

lower than anticipated. The extraordi
nary appropriations on account of thn
war amounted to fTJ.lWO.aiO for the army
and U,V,000 for tho navy, a total of
91.600.00a But of these sums about
3.000,OW went for repairs of dockyards
and stores which are still on hand for
future use, leaving the actual net cost
of military ooeratlons at not moro than
171,000,000. To this sum must bo addd,
however, the costs of making peace,
namelv. the indemnity to bo paid to
Turkey, which may be capitalized at
flO.000,000, and tho expense ot bringing
tho army homo and disbanding It, per
hnna enough to brine tho total amount
chargeable - to the war up to 150,000,000.
Tho drain has not embarrassed national
finances and haa been met by native re
sources. During tho year of the war the
Increase of ordinary revenue duo to ex
pansion of trade was J13.800.0O). a sum
sufficient to pay Interest on tho war's
cost, and liquidate one-ninth of the

Tho Imperial census or December i
J010, Just published In detail, shows that
tho total population of Germany has In
creased 16.18 per cent in the space of
ten years. One notable fact shown by
tho new tables-Is the Importance of the
forolgn element In th empire, and the
extent to which the foreign and foreign
born population has recently Increased.
"With a population of GJ,925,893 subjects.
Germany counts 1,259,87a foreigners within
her frontiers. The increase in tho foreign
population has been four times as rapid
on that of tho native population tho In
crease Indeed was nearly 20. per cent In
only five years, tho total addition to
the foreign population within this period
being 231,313. This does not, however,
affect the character of tho nation, as
more than half the foreign element come?
from German-speaking Austria, and the
next largest element from Holland. In
all, thero were 141.000 Dutchmen. 137,000

Alcoholism li France.
Government measures designed to sup
press the distillation and drinking of ab
sinthe hardly creates a ripplo in the
mighty pool of alcoholism which threat
ens to engulf France. The moro heroic
remedy of reduced number of licenses is
necessary to check tho national appetite,
and this remedy Is obstructed by political
power. It Is estimated by a Paris corre
spondent that one out of every fifteen
Frenchmen Is connected either as vender
or distiller with tho liquor trade. The
"bistros'' keepers of cafes and bars

modern methods and conveniences
it is made so attractive the whole
.family is becoming interested, if not
taking part in it.

excellent," says the father. " I made them,"

I've a little picture
Artist? No one knows
Just a winding country road
Where a glad wind blows;
With a bit of forest,
Cool and green and stilt,
Set against a morning sky,
Rose and daffodil.
There's a brook that dances
Underneath a bridge;
There's wood-thrush singing
Somowhere up the ridge.
All the wind Is honey-sweet
With the wild sweet clover,
Tls the place to pause and dream
All your old dreams over.
Oh. I wish that artist
Somehow could bo told
Of tho happiness he's hid
In his skies of gold;
Could but know the Joy It Is
Just to drop your load,
And 'to go a-wondering
Up his forest road.
SLEEPING with the
windows open is a "first
aid" to health and beauty.
But it makes getting up in
the morning a chilly ordeal.
