HE quick ascendancy of Bulga ria into the society of powerful nations is the third evolution which has elevated the Bulgars from among the oppressed and the low ly masses. Twice before Bulgaria has existed as a free and independent na tion, and each time she has known the glories of worldwide influence. In the past her territory was far greater than the present Bulgaria and perhaps greater than will be the new Bulgaria recreated from the tumbling ruins of the Ottoman empire. Bulgarian traditions extend to A. D. 679, when a tribe called Bulgarians ap peared from the direction of the Dan ube, under the leadership of Asparuch They were not Slavs, and history has not determined if they were Uralhans. Finnish, Tartars or Turks. But these Bulgarians who settled south of the Danube were a powerful tribe, and their desire to conquer was backed by a strong system of state or ganization. Asparuch knew how to or ganize his forces into a government, and it was under him that the first semblance of government appeared among the Bulgarians. His people be came military and accustomed to dis eipline and to leadership Those fac tors were absent from the Balkan Sla vonic tribes and were necessary for the single tribal, territorial and political whole found in the Bulgarians under Asparuch. This state organization was effected on the ruins of numerous tribes which had lived in the Balkan peninsula for generations. History says the Slavs reached and settled that country first in the third century and that even then they found the ruins of towns and roads left by the Romans. But those early occupants of the territory left no descendants, and the first traditions of the land really sprang from the Bulga rians under Asparuch. Adoption of Christianity. An epoch in the early career of the Bulgars was marked when they and the Slavs, in the reign of Boris, adopt ed Christianity in 864. This faith was adopted for purely political reasons, and it had a great influence internally and externally. Internally it brought about a close union between the Bulgars and the Slavs, and by means of a common lit erature it placed on an equality the habits, customs and language of both. Externally Bulgaria appears as an empire in the congress of nations. On the geographical maps of that day Bulgaria is shown as an empire ex tending across the Balkan peninsula and doWn nearly to the Bosporus. Following the adoption of Christian ity there is no mention in historical records of tribal or racial division be tween the invaders and the conquer ors. The conquerors contented them selves with establishing a great Bul garian state, and they adopted the language of a mixed mass of people and assimilated the races. Simeon the Great, son of Boris, be came the first czar of Bulgaria, and with him occurs the first mention of such a title. At the same time the flrst Bulgarian archbishop was created a patriarch, and there history records the division between and co-operation of the state and church. These titles, however, were not recognized by the Byzantine empire, then the greatest on the earth, until the reign of Peter, son of Simeon. Arrogant I Success. During Peter's reign the Bulgarians prospered, but there was a weakness In its external affairs. It failed to make allies. It became arrogant in its success, and in the succeeding reign of Boris II. it antagpnized the Byzantine empire, and the Greek gen eral, John Tsymich, took to Constanti- ROOM WITH GLASS FLOOR. American Artist's Decorative Scheme For an Aeroplane Illusion. Montfort Coolidge, a New York paint er in Paris, has evolved a novel idea of room decoration for the villa of Count Gabbi, a young and wealthy avi ator at Rimini, Italy. The panels will represent landscapes of southern Eu rope as seen from an aeroplane. The ceiling of the room will be col ored to resemble the sky, while in the middle of the floor will be set a large panel of glass. Some distance below the glass and lighted electrically from the sides will be fixed a painting re sembling the Italian Alps seen from an immense height. The*illusion of flying in an aeroplane will thus be given to the occupants of the room, which will be used for mu sical entertainments. This remarkable scheme has, it is asserted, sound artis tic principles. Mr. Coolidge explains that, the paintings being below the level of the eye, it can be enjoyed in comfort while listening to the music, but a decorated ceiling is far too high to be properly appreciated in these cir cumstances Mr Coolidge asserts that this idea is a development of the methods of the Romans, who adorned their floors, as THE PBEtfCEtfOK tnrtCXSti I 0 Past Territory Greater Than New Bulgaria Is Likely to Be. nople the crown of the enemy of the Byzantines, Boris II., and deprived Damian, the Bulgarian patriarch, of his see. Bulgaria at that tiike lacked farsee ing statesmen. She became a selfish power within herself and against all others. There was competition for emolument within herself, and the By zantines did not find great dinlculty in destroying this disorganized state. In the year 1018 the Emperor Basil of Byzantium, known as "Slayer of the Bulgarians," put an end to Bulgarian existence, particularly in the west, to ward the Adriatic. This war continu ed for twenty-eight years, and then for 107 years Bulgaria and the Bulgarians remained under the rule of the Byzan tines. Weakness Develops. Byzantium, however, was weak in herself. She did not continue in a po sition to cope with dangerous and diffi cult problems since her own rulers were not firmly fixed upon their seats and because internal jealousies and dissensions. Here it was said that graft weakened the Byzantines, just as it is said to have m&de their succes sors, the Turks, weak in the present war with the Balkan allies. Boliars Asen and Peter, descendants of the first czars of Bulgaria, made a successful revolution in Tirnovo in the early part of the twelfth century, ob tained mdependence of the Bulgars and proclaimed the second Bulgarian empire. Asen I. and his successors, notably Asen II., greatly increased the powers and territory of the second Bulgaria, waging victorious wars with the Greeks and the crusaders and extend ing the boundaries of the empire still more widely than in the time of Boris II. They annexed Moesia, Thracia, Macedonia and Albania as far as Du razzo, which is now the Adriatic port of contention between the Servians and the Austrians. But the second Bulgarian empire was as weak as the first in lacking any definite state policy. Apparently its leaders were fighting for aggrandize ment without knowing why. They formed no alliances. There was no higher inspiration than rehabilitation and revenge which prompted their war like moves. Therefore it was in the position of being strong and aggressive when the throne was held by a strong and aggressive czar and weak and in effectual when the ruler was incapable. Engaged In Many Wars. The unstable internal condition of the country was aggravated by the many wars and expeditions which were carried on without definite purpose. These weakened it and prepared it for catastrophe. These facts led to the establishment of a strong Servian kingdom, which made its capital at Uskub, under the Servian Czar Dou shan, in the flrst half of the fourteenth century. This division of power made it easy for the Turks to conquer Bul garia and later the whole Balkan pen insula. Bulgaria then disappeared as an in dependent nation for five centuries un til the domination of the Turkish em pire was broken down by the efforts of the Russians and the Roumanians. Then the Berlin treaty gave Bulgaria practical liberty, and in 1908 Ferdi nand declared the absolute independ ence of the Bulgarians and proclaimed himself czar. Until then he had been a prince. The title czar is clearly traced through 1,800 years from Cae sar. One form of it is kaiser. For nearly 400 years the Bulgarians have been preparing for the war with Turkey. The result of this training is seen in the third appearance of the great Bulgarian empire under Czar Ferdinand. VVVfVV PLEADS FOR THE SKUNK. Living's High Cost Reduced by It's Efforts, Zoologist Says. While the importation of elk into Pennsylvania has caused hunters to awaken to the fact that there are no laws that prohibit the killing of these animals, because there has not been for many years an elk in the state's for ests, Economic Zoologist H. A. Surface suggests that the game laws should be extended to provide protection for an animal which to his mind is even more important. It is the skunk. "There is no animal more valuable than the skunk," said Dr. Surface. "The economic aspect of the utility f the skunk was well illustrated this year by the potato crop. If the state had enough skunks potatoes would be veiling at reasonable prices. The Kkunk, in a measure, will help solve the high cost of living. "The skunk likes white grubs, and they never were more plentiful than this year. The grubs have done much damage. They are the larvae of the May beetle, or June bug. These grubs eat the roots off grass and attack the spots of the potatoes. "With more skunks there would have fe Dee well as their walls, with mosaics. not be selling at 90 cents a bushel." ^e grubs, and potatoes would GDAX,I MCEMBEB FINANCE PUZZLE IN TURK DEFEAT What Will Happen to Holders i of Its Debt? "TRIPLE MONEY ALLIANCE' France, England and Germany, Having Poured Millions Into Turkish Loans, Can Be Relied Upon to Insist Upon Guarantees of Their Citizens' Invest- mentsPosition of Ottoman Bank. In the event of the defeat of Turkey the financial consideration will be of great importance. Writing of the first steps toward peace negotiations M. Leroy-Beaulieu, a political and finan cial authority of high repute, puts the situation thus: "Turkey's appeal will hardly be considered unless its gov ernment accepts as terms of peace its complete abandonment of its European possessions, including Constantinople, and the hour seems near at hand when it must resign itself to that conces- sion." Whether this prediction is right or wrong in regard to.the fate of Con stantinople, it is admittedly correct as regards at least a partial dismember ment of the empire. But that involves international considerations of another sort. These other difficulties concern the Turkish national debt, with its lien on the taxes in the European domin ions: the loans guaranteed by other European revenues in virtue of the de cree of Mouhtft'rem and, finally, the future status of the Turkish Imperial bank, known as the Banque Ottomane. Turkey's Loan Security. The revenues pledged against Tur key's various foreign loans consist to some extent of proceeds of taxes of provinces outside of Europe, such as the Egyptian tribute and the grain tithes of various districts of Asia Mi nor. But revenues from European Tur key are also largely involved. Italy has set a precedent in assuming a proportional part of the similar debt when taking possession of Tripoli. An agreement somewhat similar has been made by Spain in Morocco. But*events have crowded so closely and have already come so near to the complete dissolution of the old order for Turkey in Europe that awkward questions will shortly have to be faced. It is beginning to be recognized that much will depend on the good will of the Balkan allies, especially if their Victory is complete and final. Who Holds the Debt? The present situation is plain enough. France, England and Germany, the "Triple Money Alliance," have for years opened their money markets wide to Turkish loans, and it is highly improbable they will not unite to in sist on preserving the guarantees of their citizens' investments. France has the heaviest interests at stake. A moderate estimate assigns to French holdings 70 per cent of the total -Tur kish obligations. The Unified 4 per cent loanthe most importantcan present no immediate difficulty. Its annual service demands 2,157,375 (pounds Turkish, equal about $4.40 each in American money), and the an nual receipts applied to it are 4,000,- 000, so that there is a reserve of nearly 2,000,000 for eventualities. But the nature of the guarantees of this principal debt shows whence diffi culties may arise. They are a part of the revenues of the salt and tobacco monopolies, stamp and alcohol taxes, fishery dues and silk tithes, commercial licenses, the tribute of Bulgaria, dues from oriental Rumelia and surplus revenues of the island of Cyprus. Since these latter are themselves the result of international agreement, precedents to solve the coming diffi culties may be found in them. These are only five of the fourteen Turkish loans quoted on the official stock exchange at Paris. The Balkan allies surely cannot ex pect to take the attitude of Cuba with respect to the Spanish Rational debt still less that of Germany in Alsace Lorraine with regard to the French national debt. The Ottoman Bank Problem. The difficulty of the Ottoman bank is peculiar, but may not prove insoluble. It is a private bank, with a large issue privilege for which it has certain obli gations to the Turkish government. This is not a reason why is should not continue to serve the needs of what ever new regime may be established, even that of the Balkan allies. They have no substitute for its dozen branches in what was Turkey in Eu rope. The more curious part of the problem arises from the fact that the bank has been obliged to make loans to the Turk ish government for the present war and has received as a guarantee treas ury notes which themselves are guar anteed by revenues collected by the tebt administration. In all this financial hornets' nest it is well to point out that all the national banks of the world have a certain com mon interest of self defense. They can not afford to allow so important an in ternational precedent to be drawn against investments made by them in fears gone by in entire good faith and ander the shelter and guarantee of treaties in which all the neutral pow ers particinaied. Pi- W^HHirkiMlMWil NATURAL BRIDGES. If*? The Biggest In the World Are In the Utah Desert WONDERS OF WHlfE CANYON. Three Massive Towering Arches, Ma jestic In Their Rugged Grandeur, Span the Lonely, Picturesque Gorge, Far From the Beaten Paths of Man. Among the wonders of the "west which the government has taken un der its care are the remarkable natural bridges of Utah, which are, so far as is known, without a peer. In 1908 these three bridges, the Caroline, Au gusta and Edwin, were set aside as na tional monuments, and later 'certain caves and springs near by were added to the reserved area. It is difficult to give an adequate idea of these stupendous arches, and so far they have been seen by few persons, for it is a trip of days across the desert to reach them, but accurate measurements have been taken and convey some notion of their size and shape The popular way of reaching these curiosities is from Bluff, Utah, where one can obtain a guide and out fit Thence you proceed through dry washes, old stream beds and sage cov ered mesas to the great bridges, which loom up in White canyon far from the beaten path of man. The White canyon itself is many miles long, and the bridges spring from its steep. 4ight buff walls, the .three being within a distance of five miles They seem carved by Titanic forces, for the largest is 222 feet high and 65 feet thick at the top of the arch. The arch is 28 feet wide, the span is 261 feet, and the height of the span is 157 feet The Natural bridge of Virginia is a baby in comparison with any of the three Utah formations It is to be re gretted that these wonderful bridges are not easier of access Figures give little idea of their immensity, and words but suggest their beauty. The first account of them given to the world was that of Horace J. Long, who visited the bridges in 1903. Long was an engineer and prospecting in Utah. One day he fell In with a cattle man named Scorup, who was familiar with Utah and in particular with the region lying around the San Juan river Scorup. after some preliminary con versation, said that he had seen some remarkable bridges so immense and wonderful that-he disliked to talk about them for fear he -would be accused of manufacturing the story. He added that though be had seen them in 1898 he had always desired to go back and if Long would accompany him and take photographs he would guarantee to guide the engineer to the place. Accordingly the two men set out with pack horses and provisions, and after a lonely trip through deserts and canyons- and wide stretches where no animal wasro be seen they descended into the gorge of the White canyon, the sides of which are filled with deserted cliff dwellings Two days later they came to the wonderful bridges, the flrst of which, of pink sandstone. Scorup called Caroline in honor of his mother Long was fairly dazed at the beauty and size of this natural wonder The pink walls were streaked with delicate colored licbens and stood out in bold relief against a sky of blue. More than this, both men felt that they were gaz ing on one of the wonders of the world They pushed rapidly down the can yon and came to another arch, more symmetrical and more beautiful than the first, with a lightness and grace and charm of coloring that made it a splen did work of nature. Long named this the Augusta after his wife and man aged to get a fair photograph. The arch was so high that the trees of Cal ifornia would seem dwarfed beside it. and the men took what measurements they could by climbing and clinging to the canyon's sides. They found the Edwin, or Little bridge, several miles down the canyon, the arch in reality of immense dimen sions, but small in comparison with those that they had measured. All around these bridges are crags and strange formations, cave dwellings, springs and other objects of interest. but the center of attraction is and will always be these three towering arches which span the White canyon Undoubtedly these bridges are of great scientific interest, not alone be cause they are so far as known the largest natural bridges in the world, but because they are extraordinary ex amples of stream erosion An ancient river probably carved these great arches, which may have been known to prehistoric dwellers of the desert west New York Sun.
