Pahis, Sept. 30.- In order to study the
methods of nuriciilttirnl mortgage banks
they nrp managed in France nn Anieri
c.in commission consisting of It. Ingalls,
fon of tho late Senator lugtill, and K.
Chamberlain, vice-president of the As
sociation of Hankers, has just visited
Paris and with tin; assistance of Amhns-i
pador llcrrick tin.' members hiive made
a far reaching investigation Into the
Die French, they found, have dono
wonders for the advancement and de
velopment of agriculture. .Since the
hole problem of agricultural education
and the organization of personal and
howl credit was attacked fifteen years
ago the annual value of French agricul
tural produce has risen l,500,uon,ooo francs
The pystcm of education is thorough
and far reaching. At the pinnacle Is the
Itistitut Agtonome, which Is to agri
culture what the French Academy of
St-i'-nee I to the scientific world. It
consists of f'rty of the most eminent
aeri 'iilturiMs in France, anil admission to
it ranks is the highest honor which can
lie conferred on an agriculturist. It is
the supreme directing head of agricultural
rditr.it ion and it trains tho professors of
the highest clans.
Next in importance come the other
ereat agricultural schools nt (Irlgnon.
near Paris; 'tonnes and Montpellier. To
each of them large farms of about 700
acre are attached on which the pupils
are instructed in the science of farming.
Karh school has to resident students
as well a a numberr "externes." The
roure lasts two and a half years and
th men turned out are first class agri
culturists. lU-tieatli thee come the eight F.coles
rr.-itliU"s, each with about 150 pupils.
The course of study and training in these
is very thorough and complete, Schools
for resident students are the model farms.
These belong to private agriculturists,
but are under Government inspection.
The course is also two and a half years.
In addition to these purely technical
and residential schools, agriculture is
taught in every lyco oc college in France
and in all the upper primary schools.
Thrre is n professor of agriculture for
every department, who lectures in the
lyrei's and in every arrondisement or
Mib-divilon of the departments. There
i an assistant professor who lectures in
the upper primary schools. Thanks to
this elaborate educational organization.
which has been in oporation for fifteen
years, the level of agricultural technical
education is higher than in any other
country in hurojie.
So much for education, so far at least
r.s it is in the hands of the flovernmcnt
The next question is that of land credit
and in this also France leads tho way In
Kurope. The giving of mortgage loans
in France is practically a monopoly of

Paius, Oct. 2. All Montmartrc, home
of artists, artistes and cabarets. Is cele
brating a great event, nn event which
Is celebrated each year nt this time
nnd In times gone by with rhuch more
fervor than nowadays. The Montmartrc
vintage of 1912 is being gathered and
the Ilutte goes about It Just ns they do
in ltoiirgogne or Medoc.
Modernism, Just as it has pushed over
the nnrlent mills one after another has
desecrated the once famous vineyard
of the Ilutte until not only one vineyard
Is left, that belonging to M, Maurice
Neumont, nn artist. It Is very smalt
nnd clings as It were to the side of the
hill. The owner fears that it will not
survive many more seasons.
Along with the vineyards of Argen
teiill nnd Suresnes the vineyards of
Montmartrc long ago enjoyed a wide
reaching fame, for wine from Mont
martrc was always sent to the King.
The King's portion was called the
(loutte d'Or, and this name Is found to
day belonging to one of the sections of
Cllgnancfitirt, Just north of Montmartrc.
Paris In the twelfth century was a
vast vineyard belonging to various re
ligious sects, hut In place of them to
day are modern apartment houses of
five stories, the Paris skyscrapers.
Among the old vineyards some-of the
most famous were those of Saint Ger
main des Pres. Saint Victor, Salnte

P.Mtts, Oct. 2. Weird and wondrous
are the tales told of the French rural
police, unci the newspapers of the capl
lal never miss an opportunity to make
fun of them, nne particularly good
story Is the following:
A game warden was making his
rounds In the forest belonging to a
count living not far from Paris when
he came across a poacher and Imme
diately gave chase. In tho darkness,
however, he lost track of him and some
time later lie was returning to his post
along the main road. An automobile
pas-sed and the warden stoped the ma
chine nnd asked the occupants If they
had seen the miscreant.
"No," Jhey replied, "hut climb In with
us nnd perhaps we will come ncross
him along the road."
The warden did so, but after they hod
travelled some miles he nsked them to
let him out. His request was received
only with a shout of laughter, and then
the warden recognized in one of his
companions the man he was after.
The automobile did not slacken Its
pace until It reached Pnrls In the early
hours of tho morning. The warden was
forced to climb out In the Place de la
Concorde after Ills captors hud taken
every sou from him. He hud to pawn
his empty gun in the Monte de Piete
In order to get railroad fare bark home.

Palestine, Jewish colonists nnd other
recent Jewish Immigrants now form
half of the entire .leulsli population of
Palestine nnd nre rapidly increasing.
They nte especially strong at Haifa,
Jaffa, and Jerusalem.
The colonists now own forty villages
and about 100,000 acres of land. Of this
hind TG per cent. Is under cultivation:
21,000 nrres In Juden, with 15 colonies;
15,000 acres In Samaria, with 8 colonies;
40,000 acres In Galilee, with 16 colonies,
and COO acres In the trans-Jordan conn

The most Important of these settle

1S7S nnd 1902, nre Pctharh-Tlkwh
(1.300 colonists), ltlshon le Zlon (1,000
colonists) In Judea, Klkhron.Jacob
(1,000 colonists) In Samaria, and Hosh

The early progress of these settle
ments was slow, nnd at the end of the
nineteenth century they were not self-
supporting, hut relied to n great extent
on the generosity of Baron Kdnioud de
Uothschlld. In 1S99 the Jewish Colon

pearance of tho hansom cab the drivers
are being driven. If one can say that
Into the poorhouscs, as most of them
are too old for anything else.
It has been nlways supposed ever
since the reign of Loula Philippe that
the sarcastic, money grabbing cab
drivers came from Auvergne. but sta

from the Department of the Seine, that
Is to say Paris nnd Its suburbs. Au

Paius, Oct. 2. The origin of the polka
has Just been discovered. It Is said
on good authority that the dance origi
nated In one of the little villages of
llohemla, where n servnnt, tiring of hei
work In the kitchen, thought to make It
lighter by dancing around the kitchen
nnd singing nt the same time, The mN
tress of the house overheard her and
cnlled her Into the parlor, where shu
was asked to dance the peculiar step
over again. A musician hy the name of
Neruda was present and he some tlnv;
later wrote music for the step. Tho
mime polkacotnes from tho Czech lan
guage, meaning half step.
In 1839 tho polka was Introduced In.o
Vienna and It made an enormous suc
cess. The writers of the popular music
of the day ndapted It Immediately to
their work. The polka wns danced on

It Is reported that the reply to Russia

that one of the most Important clauses
n their note Is obscure and asks for an
explanation within a short time. It Is

lnlilonalilr Women Arrested nt
Orders of Thrlr llu.lmilil..
Viknna, Sept. 30. An Interesting
story Is being told here regarding u
I class of women whose well to do hus
bands took drastic means of punishing
them for their activities as members of
a fashionable poker club nt one of tho
In the cafe In question there Is a
large rear room which Is set asldo for
players nnd those who wish to follow
tho gnme. The games usually played In
the cafes are Innocent games, such ns
nre In vogue In nny respectable cafe
throughout Kurope, hut poker Is for
bidden by law. Some time ago
one man after another found thnt the
funds i-et aside by him for household
exiienses were disappearing. One huti
band compared notts with another and
he with another, nnd It was learned
that the wives of all spent the after
noons In the fashionable cafe. Spies
were placed and they soon learned thu
nature of the game.
One afternoon last week, when the
game was golnir nn In full swing, Herr
Stukart, the Viennese Chief of Police,
nt the head of u squad of men, entered
the cafe nnd marched straight to the
back room. Piercing screams wero
heard, chairs and tnbles were knocked
over nnd each policeman captured one
or two players, while the chief went
for the proprietor. It looked like the
beginning of a sure enough scandal.
Some of the women tried to get to
the doors, but the way was blocked.
All were taken to police headquarters,
wiere each name was taken; thnt Is,
th names the women gave. Then the
husbands began to drop Into head
quarters casually, one by one, paid the
neccsnry tines and released their re
spective wives, nil weeping nnd penitent.
It was learned later that the raid was
a setup between the women's husbands,
most of whom nre doctors, dentists or
lawyers, nnd the police.
Methods almost worthy of New York,

Slicclnl correspondence of The Sun.
Ko.mk, Sept. 29. Seventeen natives ot
the village of Verblcaro In Calabria ara
now being tried nt Hossano Calabro In
connection with the cholera riots nt
Verblcaro, full particulars of which
have up to the present been withheld.
The following account of the riots Is
taken from the Indictment:
"There was a cholera outbrrnk nt
Verblcaro during the month of August
last year which could not be combated
with success owing to the popular
superstition that the high mortality
was due to poisonous powder scattered
throughout the village by the Mayor
with the object of diminishing the In
creased population of the district. On
the morning of August 27 n mob of
nbout 500 Inhnbltnnts nrmed with
spades, knlveti, sticks and agricultural
Implements paraded the village shout
ing 'Long live the King! Death to the
"The telegraph poles were knocked
down and the wires cut so ns to Isolate
the village nnd present the nuthorltles
from summoning the troops. Tho mob
assaulted the Town Hall, wrecked all
the furniture, burned nil the documents
nnd archives nnd released the prisoners
from the local Jail. The Mayor, with
the Town Clerk, Amoros,o, had taken
refuge In two back rooms.
"Amoroso attempted to escape by
climbing over the roof of a neighbor
ing house Inhabited by the local police
mun, who, fearing that tho clerk was
trying to get In his bouse to scatter th'i
poison, threatened to shoot him, Am
oroso then tried to escifie through tho
village square, but he was mobbed by
twelve Inhabitants, among whom wero
three women, nnd literally hacked to
pieces. The police nrrested one of Am
oroso's murderers, but they were sur
rounded by the mob nnd nearly over
powered, so thnt they were forced to
use their revolvers. Several peoplo
were wounded and a woman killed.
"Seven villagers meanwhile sur
rounded thelocnl Judge, Armentano, and
threatened to kill him unless he left
the village. The Judge fled for his life
and died of fright when he reac'rd the
railway station, three miles from tho
J village. When the troops reached Ver-
