Ccrrcanondenc* ofhd EviUn Herald. City ok Mkxic, Deo, l.—As time toe? on the lull foro of th great blunder made by the Housed Keireeoutatives at Washington in reacting the Mexican reciprocity treaty becqvifs more appar ent. Since last winteiAexico has taken a long step forward fiaucially. She has adjusted her English lobt satisfactorily to the bondholders, ad has found her honorable conduct tunc immediate re turns iu a score of bevy English projects for the placing of cpital here. You, yourselves, in Bostorfaavo seen Mexican Central securities leetiug with active demand in Londot and any reader of the English firmciai press must have noted a gear Change of tone on Mexican iivestments. If you want money to onppiete your Central railway, you don’t fc the State street and Devonshire stret banking houses to help out, but you sind the President of the corporation to London, just as the National railway jeopte sek English capital to help them corn piste their main line. To-day, it is easier to ‘‘place” Mexican mines and lands in london than iu Sew York, Philadelphia, Chicago or St. Louis. You can even get money eaaier for Mexicaa project! iu Amster dam or Berlin than in the Tnited States, which is Mexico’s next dior neighbor. And it is not beoauie the Turopeans are not keen in the placing o their capital abroad. The English hav< AT LEAST SSO,OC\OOO more money here than ofr people have, and when they are makhg money they say very little about it. Our blunder In not acepting and put ting Into speedy operation the reciprocity treaty arose from the fKt that we—while great talkers on the übjeot of foreign markets and foreign trading—have not toe wit to see where w< reject such prof fered advantages otbei nations are only too ready to make tb> most of our mis takes. Had we put ttat treaty into ope ration our manufacturers would have been to-day sharing it tne benefit of a great business mevenent here. Even more English capital would have come here for placing in g'eat sugar estates, large coffee plantation, and in the prof itable benequen industry which is making fortunes for the lucky plantation owners of Yucatan. In a hundred ways European capital wmld have been em ployed in developing Mexico into the great tropic farm of Uncle Sam. In five years, under the impetus of this new movement, Mexico would have been send ing $20,000,000 of coffee to the United States, at least $10,(00,000 of tobacco, and many million dollars worth of sugar. Mexico is not and never can be a great manufacturing cointry; its manifest des tiny is to produce the chief characteristic tropical staples, useful fibres, and gold and silver. lam confident, from being in a place where 1 hear immediately of large projects, tbat the reciprocity treaty would have helped on a great investment of Eu ropean capital here, which would have, within a lew years, given tne United States a very extensive market. Mexico only requires the influence of capital to EXPAND HER AGRICULTURE beyond the narrow space it now fills. The great plantation owners here are cramped for ready cash to push on their enterprises, and you would be astonished at tne ravages the usurers make in the profits of the hacemiados. A gentleman from the States told me the other day, in a conversation on the reported deieat of Congressman Morrison, that the recipro city treaty was killed because great American syndicates were standing ready to buy vast tracts of sugar land here when the treaty should have been ma le opera tive. 1 have no doubt that the treaty got its fatal blow at the hands ot the Louisiana sugar men. But, consider a moment wbat an expansion of M6xloau agricultural activity would have meant for American machine shops. There would have been a very heavy annual demand tor sugar machinery, for agricultural implements and lor sta tionary engines. Business would so have developed tbat your Central railway would soon be a paying property. It is poor policy to build great railways here and then refuse to do all the trading pos sible. The men who have put their money into the American railways did wisely; the trouble was that the absurd law makers of the nation have no idea now to make that greatinvestmentof money help tue trade of the United .States. It is an encouraging sign tbat Massachusetts is putting some new blood into her Conares sional delegation which left it to New York, in tne person of Mr. Hewitt, to work for reciprocal trade with Mexico, "’by should not Massachusetts, a great manufacturing State, with many MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE CENTRAL BAILWAY. have been foremost in advocating -Mexi can trade extension? It is my opinion that tho majority ol Congressmen have no bigger ideas than the legislative members liom Cranberry Centre. Where is tne Congressman from Massachusetts who is giving his attention to large national questions, and especially to that class of questions bearing on tbe prosperity of Massachusetts factories and mills? If Massachusetts would go in tor free wool, for free fibres, eic., and carry such a re form through by an alliance with other Slates, she would find that her mills could compete here and elsewhere in Spanish America with the mills and fac tories ol England, Germany, Austria and Belgium. You make as good carpets in Massachusetts as we import here from Austria and England, but you do not get that trade, be cause your carpet people cannot get cheap wool. Gov. Ames’shovels are found all over Mexico, and tbat is one in stance where American enterprise can overcome tariff obstacles. The excessive tariff is strangling American toroign commerce, and I have yet to eeo an Eng lishman in Mexico who does not 6ay that the United Elates Is pursuing u trade policy witu which they (tho English) are entirely satisfied. Talking this morning with a distin guished American, who has represented our government at two great European capitals with credit to himself, ho said: “The trouble with our Congress ia tbat it cannot do anything that does not bear di rectly on local interests. Bills of a pure ly local nature will be put ttirougb, but ho great national measures, it is difficult to get the ear of a Senator or a Congress man ou any large measure, and tbe result is that WE HAVE NO FOREIGN POLICY WHAT EVER, hnd are not likely to bare. Had Prssi dent Arthur been re-eleo'ed, doubtless tbe reciprocity treaties and commercial treaties matured under bis administration would have been adopted, and thus would have been Inaugurated a wide reaching foreign pplicy which would have given us * well deli iied line of conduot with foreign nation*.” The statement that nothing can be put through Congress that ia not ol a local nature is enough to make an Amerloan residing abroad open his eyes, wo wonder Americana often try to pass themselves off as Englishmen or to get r-nglisbmen into business with them, to rop something of tbat foreign prestige which everything English has, no matter oow we may wish to shut our eyes to “• In the case of Congressman Col lias, ae has found it useless to work on suea a necessary measure as a national bankrupt law, and I have no doubt his proposed retirement to private life was caused by the irritation a strong and reso lute mind leeis on finding itself cramped into narrow channels. There is a chance lor the new Congressmen, like Lodge and “UMell, to dosomethlne to make the voice of Massachusetts heard in behalfeof wider commercial relations. Both will repre sent manufacturing districts. Lvnn makes fine shoes, and Mexico imports hne shoes from France. Worcester county makes a little of everything that this country requires. 1 do not speak for Mexico alone,but for all Spanish America. Massachusetts has a vital interest—to use a trite phrase—in securing an outlet ior her manufactures, and it is foolish to sav that, under proper conditions, she oan not supply the southern part of this hem isphere with hundreds of articles in daily use. I paper, for example. I have seen within a lew months, a very fair begin ning of direct paper importation from Massachusetts into Mexico. True, the Mexican tariff weighs heavily on paper, but no heavier on Massachusetts paper than on the paper of the German, Belgian or French manufacturers. The paper made in Massachusetts is not to be sur naseed in the world, from the splendid ledger paper made at Dalton to the tine grade book paper turned out at busy liolyoke. I only wish we could supplant European paper with the standard grades produced in Massachusetts. But, as [said, a beginning bas been made, and if the present free paper agitation now going on here induces the govern ment to take off, or greatly reduce, the paper duties, it will be well for paper makers at home to strike for the Mexican market. It costs a great deal of money here to maintain a newspaper, ana 1 speak from daily and practical experience. The same grade of paper which in Boston cost 6c. a pound, gold, will cost 18c.. gold, here with freight# and duties added. Taper is the raw iffatFgial of ihe newspaper; all the rest is labor and brains. Triple the cost ofitiie-' Boston Herald’s paper and it could not be the popular people’s journal it is. Tnat incubus of a heavy duty on paper is what we must stand here. There are a few Mexican paper mills, but In thirty under virtually protection, they have not succeeded in turning out cheap paper. So the agitation for free paper here has a solid ground to stand on. The newspapers, daily and weekly, with but an insignificant exception, are fight ing lor free paper. They point to the complete exposure of the protection theory as applied to paper manufactured here. They’ urge the claims of na tive authors and journalists. They show that Mexican youths study. TEXT BOOKS PREPARED IN FRANCE, Spain and the United States, and that, when a native text book is gotten up here it is printed on such wretched paper that it is a disgrace to the country. 1 made a tour of the bookstores this week to look into tne matter and I found that fully 90 percent, of the hooks sold were printed in Paris, Madrid or New York—mainly in the two former places. Yet we have bei e accomplished men of ecience, poets and prose writers, equal to the best of tbe lit erateursof Spain, and also skilled teach ers, whocannot publish works on account of the enormous cost. Printed books come in at a cent a pound duty, but tbe paper on which they are printed must pay from five to ten cents a pound, ii it comes unstained by printer’s ink. This policy stiflesjthe native intellect; it makes education costly; it keens down the national literary spirit; it reacts on the progress of tbe country. Thus is the protection to borne Industry theory ex emplified in Mexico. We have here some excellent engravers and lithograph ers, but they cannot extend their busi nesses as they might for the reason that paper cost so high. The trouble with the high tariffs is that they cut both ways. Take paper in Mexico. If we had no duty on paper, or a mere nominal duty, Mexico would em ploy the services of vastly more printers and’ many more engravers, and toe na tional education, on which depends the hope of the country ior the future, would be rapidly extended. If you took Mexi can wool and henequen and textile fibre, etc., without exacting duties, people here could trade much more wita you, and your mills would not. have to shut down so often. There is prooably A GOLDEN MEAN between absolute free trade and high tariffs; certainly, free trade iu raw mate rials would benefit everybody. To show how pushing German and Austrian raerohants are, and how far they go afield (or trade, 1 have been told bv merchauts here that they have recently received tenders for various classes of goods irom people in Germany and Aus triaof whom they have never before heard. The Germans watch the exportations or the United States -and. England, then go to work to see if tiiey can’t make and sell the same goddr cheaper. They study every poiyiiiul than, eaviug mastereu the lutricaftfs o( t th game, go to work to beat the ■ Mov&r Anglo-Saxons. We Americans pride ourselves ou being ••smarter than all_creation, but we fre quently get whipped soundly in foreign commercial competition. Had the reciprocity treaty been passed, several of the heaviest mercantile houses here would have esiraibHshed their pur chasing agencies in Navy York city in stead of continuing the’same in Ham burg, Vienna and London. The slowly but surely increasing trade with the United States is due to tbe endeavors of the American merchants here and of the commercial press in making known the meritsol American wares. But it is a constant battle against aotive and sharp German compeliuon. Toe English Minister here bas recently said that tbe Germans are outwitting the Englisn, and his testimony is the result of experience in Peru as wallas Mexico. Where are the great English commercial bouses ol thirty and forty years ago? Once they dominated the Mexican trade, now they have given place to tbe thrifty, busy, HARD WORKING GERMAN MERCHANTS, wbo are economical, clear-headed and adaptable to tbe habits and ways oi the peoplo and government. In the matter of electrical supplies, the Austrians are competing with the Ameri cans and English here in this country. They offer low prices and guarantee sat isfaction with their goods. It is a point we must not forget, that the Germans and Austrians are giving us, and are going to give us, much trouble. If the American Congress will help our manufacturers by wise laws we can whip them out of sight, but if no such help comes from W ashing ton, we oannot. German merchants here say: “The trouble with you Americans is that your prices are too high; your tariff keeps them high, and so wo oannot buy so much of you as we would like to, for wo are merchants solely, and will buy of you as soon as of our own people, if you can give us low prloes. We prefer to order goods lrom New York, for we can get tuom in a third of the lime. It takes four months to get goods out from Vienna, and a month, or a trifle more, irom New York, Including custom house delays. But you Americans are great talkers, and don’t do so much as our people wbo keep still." This is, ae Artenius Ward would say “sarkastlcal," but true, all the sajue. The Ounce of Prevention.

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1886. Some Famous Pasters. From the Fall Mall 6 Janette. The great publicity given to the ques tion of tasting now before the world, excited by recent successful and unsuc cessful attempts to sustain life, bas in duced me to state a lew facts not gener ally known in reference to this matter. That lite can be supported and preserved and tbe ordinary duties perlormed oil a diet comparatively simple and limited la amonut, is an admitted truth and ac cepted by most persons who have investi gated it. In 1719 there lived a certaiu Thomas Wood, boru of intemperate parents. Up to the age of 40 no indulged himseil to excess in meatot a fatty nature and in largo quantities of those articles of diet containing fatty ingredients, such as cheese, butter, and sugar, his beverage being strong ale. He gradually developed into a man ot enormous dimensions, and complication after complication of dis orders arising day by day, he became alarmed at the inevitable, which staffed him in the face. He gradually cut dowu his diet by degrees, diminishing his beer to begin with, and then those diets con taining sugar, atid also animal flesh. He ultimately allowed himself only pudding m ado of sea biscuit. With this change ot food all his symptoms disappeared, he became metamorphosed from a monster into a man once again. The curious (act is that he abstained from all drink of whatever description. The “sea pudding’’ was composed as follows: Three pints of skimmed milk; this being boiled, was poured on one pound of sea biscuit broken into pieces. This compound be ing boiled iti a clotb for two hours, it be came a pudding of sufficient consistency to be cut with a knife, and on this alone he subsisted for two years, enjoying splendid health, and with an absence of all those disagreeable symptoms before mentioned. The quantity taken was ljj pounds at 5 o’clock in the morning as bis breakiast, and the same quantity at noon for dinner; after this hour he abstained from ali food until the next day. Tbe case of Wood is beyond all doubt, as two clergymen, two doctors, and the church warden in the parish where he lived all testified to tbe truth of tbe facts. Tracing the history up of tasters, we come upon tliatof John Brown, a miner in Ayrsmre. He lived buried in a coal mine without swallowing anything but small quantities of chalybeate water sucked through a straw, this being suf ficient to sustain life even in a contami nated atmosphere, tbe nervous excita bility being thus diminished, and thus mitigating the cravings ol hunger. This is a most interesting case, and bears com parison at tne present time wiih the Italian fasters and their wonderful drinks. At Liege some colliers were shut up iti a pit (or twenty-lour days, and sus tained their lives with water alone from a fountain. Experiments were made and the water analyzed, it was found to contain upon evaporation nothing extra ordinary, and only lime, or wbat is called “calx.’’ Tbe same constituent is sup posed to have existed in the fluid whicn supported John Brown, as belore alluded to. Why should not this be the same in the case ol the Italians?—water impreg nated with lima suspended in solution. I only give it as a theory, and 1 think a correct one. Elizabeth Woodcock, in 1799, lived eignt dais on snowwater. Oeciiia Steers, in 1820, lived fitieen days also on snow water alone. This came Irom a well thirty feot deep, and which had been made lor tbe purpose ol obtain ing chalk. Here we have another in stance ot the “calx." In 1765 we read of three women in Italy, buried for tuirty seven days in the suow, living on snow water also impregnated with lime. In 1795 a Yorkshire gentlemen, aged 60, absolutely was incapacitated Irom taking loud for thirty-six days. Wnen in health he weighed 240 pounds, and on tbe thirty second day of his last he was reduced to 138 pounds in weight. Dr. Wilian relates a caseol an abstainer living seventy-two days without nourishment, on which day he" died exhausted. He lived only on water flavored with orange juice. Henry Welby, in 1637, for forty years, though of great wealm, never lasted either tisb, flesh or fowl. He died at tne ripe old age of 84. During tbe whole of his reiiiemeiit his chief food was oatmeal gruel and a salad ot cool nerbs. Tue longest time recorded in tbe annals ol pbysio in which a man existed without loud was sixty-jne days, the case being that of a young man driven mad from overwork. Alexander Benedictus men tions a case at Venice wnere a man lived lorty-six days witnoutiood. The history ot France states that Louis tne Ficus, Euiperor of France, who died in 1840, ex isted loriy days witneut food or drink. Aluerlus Magnus gives us tbe record ot a woman ol Cologne, wno lived for seven weeks only on water. It is said that Democritus lived to the Ege of 109 years, and that in the latter part of bis life, for lorty days, he lived on smelling honey and hot bread. Haulin relates another case where fllty-two days of fastiog took place on water alone. The Medical Ga zette lor July, 1835, coniains two re markable instances; one of these, a patient, is stated to have lived six years without swallowing any lood, tbe mouth being occasionally moistened witb water, tea, or whey, which was not swallowed, but spat out. In the other case, which was originally recorded by Frol. llioei, of Turin, an inability to take food existed for three years. Tnere are many tradi tions in all histories relating to the means employed by various individuals to sup port Hie during danger and privation. The ludiuns of Asia and America, when tuey are bound lor a long journey wbere there is a possibility of much a stale of affairs existing, prepare tnemselves for emergencies as follows: They mix the juice of tobacco with powdered shells in the lorm of small balls, which they retain iu their mouths. The gradual solution serves to counteract the uneasy cravin g lor toed, it naving been proved b.v experi ment that clay introduced iuto the stomach relieves hunger. In 1770 a woman living nt Yarmouth created con siderable excitement and amazement in the world. She was reported to have lived for seven years and a half without lasting food, her Ups only moistened with water. Tbe manuscript department at tbe British Museum contains a quaint description or tbe fasting of Jane Hodges (Sloan MS., 4.811). She lived ill the year 1069 She suffered from hysteri cal aphonia and neither ate nor drank for nine weeks, so H is reported. Sue was under a delusion, and stated that “sbo fasted for the sins of the people, and that she was tbe saviour of the nations.” She ultimately recovered and took tood. In 1870 we read of tbe “Lancashire tasting girl,” Ellen Sudworth, aged 11. This is, however, not one olclear abstaining from solid food, as she lived on liquids and soups. We now come to Dr. Tanner, tbe American physician, who in 1880 com menccd his fast of forty days’ duration. He apparently completed this, and was stated to have benefited to the extent of £26,000 by it as a commercial speculation.
