Brest-IJtovsk. The fall of the great fottress of Brest I. lrov.sk.

Most notable is this feat of tin- Hermans ill breaking down the resistatn-e of the BtMaMn army and driving II from one prepared noettlon after another a hundred miles in twenty-one days and at Inst reducing the Stronghold which was to be the siumlillng block in the patb of the Invader. There Is no parallel for this stiieii dous success iu modern warfare, and in conjecture, therefore, as to what the Herman war machine may yet no COUpMah Is futile. If die Russians were to make a successful grand any where, the Itlver Bub in its .-onr' from near Novo Ceorglevsk to Brest l.ltovsk ami them-e -kouIi lo Cholm afforded g defence of great strength.

But the fact remains thai ihe itus aian army, which covered Itself wlib glory lu ihe Caiician campaign, tak ing la-iiilierg and Peremysl, the latter with an immense number of j iriK ii ers. threatening Cracow, selling sum logic Carpathian pa-os to descend into the HUUgarlnu plains, has failed utterly to save its prestige In the pres ence f tin- powerful Herman offen sive ami has with lUMculty preserved its organization.

Rat Ha Nhe Really and Truly Olveo is Her Name and Addres? To tub EntToa or Tits St-N Fir: I had no intention of seriously consider ing the many letters published In The 8un In reply to my communication ugainst woman suffrage of August 2u, which has been called "The Chant of Hate," until I read the one from Mrs Kdlth M. Arnold. Her letter so Inter ested me that I am moved lo reconsider my determination not to reply to the attacks made upon me. Owing to the fact that Mrs. Arnold Insultingly de- gerlMl the Almighty as a suffragist, I must say that she owes to the world the telling of the secret ns to how- the suffragists enlisted the Almighty Pather In their cause. Such a story with proof behind It would make tie most Interesting read ing that has come down to us since the genesis of the world. If Mrs. Arnold will write this tory for Ths Pn she would go down In history nnd be for ever Immortalized. I rannot understand, perhaps Mis. Arnold can, why suffragist find It necessary to couple their cause with that of the prohibitionists. If votes for women means votes for prohibition the suffragists themselves are uncon sciously knifing to death the cause for Whleh they are fighting. To this we "antis" have no objection I take It that the question of woman suffrage, so far as t have been aihlt to learn from lis tening to Its propagandists and from reading suffrage literature and the newspapers. Is dissolving Itself into the quest ion of prohibition. While there Is no apparent relation between suf frage and prohibition In my mind, nevertheless many men have come to view suffrage as a side street to prohi bition How the millions of men who know how to use liquor and who find pleasure In Its use can be asked to vote for a question that threatens to rob them of this pleasure and comfort is too deep for my solving. I leave It to Mr. Ar nold. The Injection of the llQUOr ques tion Into the campaign for votes for women is to be deplored, but tbe suffra gists are to blame. There nre so many female free laii.-es writing "pieces to the newspaper" nlout what women will do to the liquor business when they get the vote, so many would be female sociologists splattering broadcast their puerile opinion about the coming re Ultl of universal suffrage, so many un muzzle, 1 female "philosopher" running loose in Ihe land, thut I do not wonder at a remark m isle by a gentleman the other night In speaking of suffrage when he called li the "Twentieth Century linear." Mrs Arnold In her letter say: "I have read mu -h on lanth "Ides of thl question and I firmly believe that the Almighty Is the substantial backer of 0Ual franchise. " Now I shall herewith propound thre questions, to which I trust Mrs Arnold will make reply I'.i-t. Can you, Mrs. Arnold, prove to me beyond every doubt "that the ai- mlghty Is tlie substantial backer of equal franchise"? s, , ndly, If "more women will line up with Ood than Booze," why did the women of California vote against pro hibition last November and against It In I leaver last April" Thirdly. Ate the men of New .Te-sey. New York. Pennsylvania and Massachu setts who will vote on the question this fall to believe that woman suffrage and prohibition are one and inseparable'' Mrs. iBAaatxa D, Lacxit, Soctii 0BAK0B, N. J., August IS. IVhst Is the I nderlvlng Mothe of the Demand for the Vote? To thk KniTos or Tils 90H Mr: The most noticeable feature of the corre spond. -nee published in the si's- re garding "Votes for Women" is the prominence given lo matter which, when not merely Irrelevant recrimina tions, are at best but of minor Imiior tance Hardly any of the correspond ence touche fundamental matter. ne of the Woe from which tlie body politic i now suff.-ring Is that the suf frage, through the Influence of politi cal item. i Jollies w o-e instincts lire anything but altruistic notwithstanding their prof ess lone, t al ready too neatly extend, .1 and it i very difficult to sen how the Virtual doubling of the voting poputetlon would Improve matter. those who advocate "Votes for Women'' roellae that the ratio ,,f Ignorant and unfit Women to the total number of women is probably approxim.i'ely iden tical with the ratio obtaining among men?

To thk Kiiitor or Tun Si n Mr Tim reason guggeBted In the editorial article In Thk Si n for the limited popularity of mushroom gathering Is undoubtedly tin- main one. yet I think tin re aie more mushroom hunters than Is ge:. rally supposed. Certainly the fascinations of the quest ure enough to outweigh the dread with which one starts. Tie re are very few poisonous varieties, and these are almost all Included in the Amanita i family. If one is equipped with Just a I little eotimiOfl grogs nnd a modicum of caution there is no cause for fear. Many edible mushrooms hear on undeserved sinister reputation Iwiiuhc of the accu sations of the Ignorant. Some plant will make people III. but they an usu ally their own antidote, as the emetic Itussula iiuil Botetl. Some are harm ful, but not fatally o, to certain people. While they art eaten by others with no bad result. A few people cannot eat any varieties, even ns certain ones can not eat strawberries or clams. The meadow mushroom, AgorlcuS nempestrig, is the one moat commonly ued In the Kast. There are close rela tive of this species which the OSSAla observer would take for the me, i, low mushroom, They are all goo,: and all to be distinguished from Amanita phul loide by Ihe color of Ihe gills. In the meadow mushroom these are at fltst pink, as the plant be ties older the color change to purplish brown nnd at last to almost black. Now Amanita phalloliles show gill which are alnavs white, no matter how old the plant Is. The stein of the nmidow mushroom Is not bUlbOUl at the has, and shows no sign of the sheath, while the stem Is almost always fcee from any evidence Of the veil. Amanita pholloldes hiis a stein bulbous at tbe base, gel In a kind of sheath which is popularly called "Hie poison OUp," und the stem carries the disrupted v-u in (he shape of a collar. Some cases of sils,.iiing have been the result of mistaking Amanita mus Cerlg for the highly prlmd Amanita Cowgerla, but none but an expert ghOUld attempt thi selection, and even he with crupulou car-. I am ct-ptictl of the bona tides of many reported case of amanltlne ioioning. The 'Willy i on" produces eaaggeretlone along other lines, why not along this line" Thsn soul.- physicians tire relieved from strenuous thought about p. it, cuts that puzzle them If It can Is- establish-,1 tint they have been guilty of eating mughrooms I remember one case A woman died after more thai, a we. k of sh-kn s and he had eaten mushroom lief.re she was taken down. A friend who lbs red the feast suffered no bad effects land be it know that amgnltlns f no respecter of persons). Perhaps if dog had licked her hand before her illness the utter. ding physician would have pro nounced her case one of hydrophobia. Amanltine poisoning. I understand. Is tather slow at first, the symptoms mani festing ihemeslvee about twelve hour after Ingestion . then the progress is a rapid .is Urychoing poisoning, which It resembles. There ought 10 l-e i wider knowledge of the many edible mushroom Which grow abundantly almost everywh re. No variety of the Coprlnu genu Is harmful and they are produced lav ishly. I found a quantity of them some time igo by a tree In Kast Fifty second street Th y Indicate generally an old tree stump or root buried where they grow. Th.- there are gome of the Hyphotomug. abundant on lawns, nnd the Maraamtug oreedeg ithe fairy ring mushrooms i, and many others very de lectable. I met a man this summer who made my mouth water by telling of the mor el which grow III hi doorysrd, None of the puffball i poisonous, though th.-v or.- not all, perhapa, edible. There art vat less attractive eatable than s pufflull in prime condition, fried hk.- an om let or stewe.l w ith gweetbreadg. Then there is the PleurottM "tr atus, found on certain kinds of trees, and the Pteurotus ulmariua, found on tin- elm, and the delicious lepiota prOCCre, broiled, and the -but space is wanting.
