War and Literature.
Whatever tends to stir the imagina
tion and enthusiasm of a people very
deeply awakens all their powers to
fresher vigor. As literature is the record
of the thought wherein man surveys his
vwn actions and the things related to
them, the result of war is quite sure to
stimulate what may be called this ef
florescence of national life. The influ
ence may not be perceptible in war
times themselves. The intense interest
in the actual at such a period rather
finds its outlet nowadays in the news
paper and the magazine than in book
making and book reading. But after
the war is over and thought subsides
from its effervescent to the reminis
cent mood then the effect is apt to
show its strength. The lover who
writes a sonnet to his mistress' eye
brow is not at that moment the victim
of a grand passion in all its fury, but
he must have felt something like it
previously. Tetrarch could not have
written his exquisite poems if he had
,be jictually sighing at the feet o
There was a magnificent outburst of
literature in England during the Napo
leonic wars, it is true, but there were
influences at work besides the current
war spirit to produce the result. It
was rather the fruit of the French rev
olution which preceded Napoleon's rise.
So in the magnificent Elizabethan pe
riod, when England was fighting a life
and death struggle with Spain, then at
the apex of its power, the chief ferti
lizing force was the vision of a newly
discovered world, with all its boundless
possibilities, which intoxicated the
imagination as men speculated on its
marvels. During our civil war, which
shook the country to the roots, there
was but little done in literature. But
the fertilizing effect was very evident
after the war ended, and the period
since has been one of brilliant literary
It would be easy to multiply proofs
that the stimulus to literature from
war takes its active form after the in
tense excitement has subsided alike for
the people who make books and those
who read books. Then human energy
finds in its reminiscent and reflective
attitude a greatly enriched field in
which to work. It is natural to expect
an outburst of literary vigor in the far
east. The race which produced Turge
neff and is represented today by Tol
stoi and Gorky will express in books its
new resentments and new aspirations.
And the Japanese will not feel that
they have conquered a place in the

The Czar's Dislike of Witte.
The personal powers of M. Witte
will be subjected to" another severe
test now that he returns to St. Peters
burg wearing new laurels. The world
has taken the great Russian statesman
mainly on his reputation as a liberal
progressivist. At last he has been
seen right in the crucible and comes
out bigger than before. This will not
please the czar and the reactionary
party around the throne. has been
hated at home for the very qualities
and deeds which give him fame abroad.
He has revolutionized Russia while in
the confidence and pay of the czar.
But Witte has not been an under
hand reformer. has worked foi
greater Russia just as Japan's great
statesman Ito worked for greater Ja
pan. Like Ito, Witte developed the
industries of the nation, put business
ahead of pleasure and "noble" idleness
and dissipation. He built factories, and
the factories built up towns, and the
towns gathered in workingmen who de
manded the rights the peasants dare
not ask for. This was the price of na
tional progress, and the autocrats don't
like Witte on that account. This mere
subject has always been stubbornly
independent in the very teeth of the
czar and will hardly prove less so now
that the western world, which Is his
model, has approved of him at a close
Even south of Mason and Dixon's
line Ben Butler is given credit foi
heading off the fever by cleaning up
New Orleans. And it is also more
than whispered there that fever skipped
the usual visit during Butler's sway
because Providence "refused to afflict
the people of the city with two such
curses at one time."
The appeal which is making for con

Sprinkling red pepper and cloves
behind them in their flight, two re

of bloodhounds and made their escape.
They had secured a piece of steel from
which they fashioned a saw and cut
one of the bars to the window. Then
breaking another bar they made an
aperture large enough to admit of the
passage of their bodies through the
window. Their escape was discovered
within twenty minutes and the blood
hounds of the institution were put on
their track. Scarcely had the hounds
struck the trail when they began to
sneeze violently from the inhalation
of the pepper and the trail was lost in
the outskirts of Sauk Rapids.

The first that was known of Cooper's
power over disease was when Mr. E.
Pomereau, living at No. 554 Eight
Ave. N., a trusted employee of the
Commutator Co. of No. 121 First St.
N., brought to Voegeli's Drug Store
the largest parasite or tape-worm
ever seen in this city, which he
claimed had been removed from his
system by the philanthropist. The
parasite measured 90 feet in length,
and when exhibited to the astonished
druggist was still alive and squirm

Mr. Pomereau was greatly excited
and told the following remarkable
story: I have been ill for a long
time. Sometimes I had a voracious
appetite, and then there would be days
when I could eat scarcely anything,
and the smell of food nauseated me.
I felt tired all the time, and when com
ing down town to my work felt as
though I hardly had the strength to
get back home again, althouglrl was
a strong, robust man before I was
taken ill. I was irritable and had
become so nervous and crabbed that I
could not be agreeable or pleasant to
any one around me, and I felt so
tired and worn out all the time that i
could not perform my daily labor
without the greatest effort. I was
weak and emaciated and my skin was
sallow. I became .moody and de
pressed in spirits and was grealy wor
ried about myself.
My employer, Mr. Ben Boneau,
had seen Mr. Cooper in the east and
said he had effected many marvelous
cures there, and advised me to consult
him. I followed his advice and have
been taking Cooper's treatment less
than one week. Two hours ago this
tapeworm passed from my system
now know what has been troubling
me all this time.
Some people would not tell about a
matter of this kind, but I believe in
giving credit wherever credit is due,
and I want everyone to know what
Cooper has done for me. I would do
anything in my power for him, for I
actually believe he has saved my life.
A few days after this Mr. W. H. Mc
Clurg, living at No. 2601 Newton Ave.
N., reporoted that Cooper had cured
him of a severe case of rheumatism
and stomach trouble. said: I
have had stomach trouble and rheu
matism for a long time. I heard of a
man who had been cured of rheuma
tism in one week by Cooper. I did

earth that could cure me, but I de
cided to try him.

Mr. Tuscany walked quickly up and
