Careful nurs ing and freedom from excitement may. however, result in his ultimate recov ery. The people of Idaho have a trow bit of slang, which they are -working very hard. They coined it oat of the re mark of a baggeman, who was in a quandary as to a d*g in his care. The dog looked well, and some one asked the baggageman where it was going. "1 don't Know." was the reply: he don't Ui ow he's e^ten his tag." And now scientists declare that tin green turtle is in danger of eMennhiu tioii, ami that in the near future we will have to be contented with u.oc'i turtle soup. And all this just as we are looking for better times, and dreamed that, in the woids of Solo mon, the voice of tin? turtte would again be heard in the land. Still, "we may be happy yet. y u bet." Coincident with the announcement of the launching of the submarine tor pedo boat at Baliimore, comes another announcement that a *debrated French inventor: has solved the prob lem of submarine navigation. The American boat can remain under water from six to eight hours, and. of course, come up miles away from where she went down. The Crcneh inveutor says his craft can remain under water an Indefinite period, and his government announces that on olMeial trials she made a speed of six knots an hour under water. The visit of King George of Greece to Vienna doubtless has more than a merely social aspect. Recent events .have made the establishment of friend ly relations between Greece and Aus tria most probabl*. In fact, the tend ency of all of the smaller countries in the south of Europe is to seek Austria)) iprotection. Turkey no lrtiger threatens them, as it once did, but Russia is a menacing danger and if the Russian .standard flies above Constantinople the •tsar would crush the Servians. Bnlgari juws and even the Greeks with com par aiivtely little trouble. Hut Austria, now a nation of progress, as it was once a nation of reaction, would 1*' a powerful ally, with which even the czar would hardly desire to meddie. Students of a woman's college in Baltimore recently debated the ques tion. "Shotuld Bachelors Be Taxed'/" The aflimative held that liarhelors should be taxed to save him from him self. by forcing him into marriage. The other side contended that the bachelor should not be taxed, because his lonely life was not his own fault, but the fault of (tome woman who had refused to marry him. The arguments Of both sides, while apparently opposed to each other, actually united lu dem onstrating the superiority of the mar fjed state and the misery of bachelor Joui. The liacAieJors present applauded the negative argument but that oqIjh Bhows how dull they are and i pletely they were taken in by feminine adroitness, and how necessary It is tbat they ibould bare wives.

President Cleveland would not recognize the independence of Cuba. A representative of the Associ ated Press sought to secure an ex pression from the war oliice on the re lations with the I'nited States as in flueuccd by the action of the senate foreign relations committee on the I Cameron resolution.

Spain Ml«lil Not Klifht Madrid. Dec. Ul. Setior Conovas del Castillo tMiay had a long interview with the duke of Tot nan. minister of foreign affairs, and Admiral Bcranger, minister of marine. The subje of the discussion was kept secret, but, it is understood that the members of the Spanish cabinet are considering the in trodustion in the near futi. 'e of politi cal and administrative reforms for Cuba and Porto Itieo. Snvii action, if taken, it is believed, will lead to a re construction of the cabinet. Senor Canovas. in an interview, said that he knew yesterday through the medium of cablegrau s received from Minister de Lome, that a resolution looking to the independence of Cuba would be adopted by the I'ni'ed States sen ito committee on foreign relations, but he does not believe that congress will eventually pas resolutions of this character, even though the public opinion may influence the American congress. Senor Castillo expressed a doul.it, whether it will be able to in fluence the other branches of the I'nit ed Stales government and President Cleveland. Spain, so far. according to the premier, is satisfied with the situ ation. Senor Canovas was of the opinion that. Secretary oiney had sup ported the cause of international law with wisdom. The holidays, he thought, would give congress time for reflection. If. however, the members of the nited States house of representatives and senate persist, in the attitude shown by he senate commit tee on for eigu affairs, Senor Canovas said that, he had reason to believe the president of the I'nited States would interpose & veto, thus comjielling iJie rein trod no tion of resolutions favoring Cuban in dependence, all of which would take time. He made the significant and im portant statement during the inter view that the recognition of the Iwd ligerenoy, and even tin* independence of the Cuban insurgents need not nee* essarily bo considered casus belli, but, nevertheless, he thought any such ac tion on the part of the Fni'ted States government, could not fail to have its effect upon the Spanish nation. 4'IhmIi in Wit nil in it to it ^Washington, Dec. 21. The Cameron Cuban resolution, if pressed to final passage in both houses, will constitute A direct and formidable issue between the executive and legislative brandies of the government.
