From Good Health. "As the result of sedentary habits, there is not sufficient oxygen taken Into the lungs. The lungs do not ex pand as they ought to, so enough air 1? not taken in. Then the overheated air is diluted, anil one must breathe Seven times to get as much oxygen as in breathing six times out of doors, and so, breathing only imperfectly and slowly, because not active, the amount of oxygen taken into the body Is insufficient. One exercising vigorously in the cold a!r out of doors breathes more rapidly, obtains a larger supply of oxygen, and the rub bish of the body?the uric acid cinders ?is burned up, and the whole system Is kept clear."

TT ?' . difwiatch from BerUn last night says: TO *??? and Russia were brought out In the the nrlvlleges given to Russian secret agents on thls side of the frontier. The socialists gave notice some time ago tha* at the reopening of parliament they would question the government on the subject Herr Ernst Haase was put forward by the narty today to make the attack. He asserted that Russia maintained a chief of spies in Berlin, named Tardlk. who re ceived $9,000 yearly and enjoyedthe Utle of his excellency. Her H^-e then mm rr SSTSSLVr^t to uVtM? s^uSS &?? to Ttoe spies made domiciliary visits ?n the homes of Russian students or other residents, occasionally Retting at the P?3*** officials and opening mail addressed to Russians The deputy accused the spies of u=in* the methods of housebreakers, seem ingly without editing police vigilance, and ?Syth? forged a power of attorney to re ceive the ml* of asocialist member of the reichstag suspected of being In correspond ence with Russians who were under the disapproval of the Russian government. Herr Haase then asked the ministers if it was not true that Russians were conducted across the Russian frontier at the request of the Russian government without extras dition proceedings or the bringing of spe cific charges. ?The principle laid down by the German government, the deputy added, seemed to be that any Russian residing in Germany who was obnoxious to his own government became thereby Immediately an undesirable resident, and instead of be ing allowed to cross any frontier he pleased he was put across the Russian frontier. Baron von Richthofen, the secretary for foreign afTairs, answering Herr Haase, de clared the German government was aware that the Russian embassy employed an official to watch over Russian anarchists in Germany, but the government was not aware that German subjects were likewise under observation. The government also was not aware that Russian agents had committed crimes or attempted to persuade others to commit crimes. The chancellor, continued the foreign secretary, did not in tend to interfere, but he regarded It as ad visable that foreign anarchists should be observed by agents of their own country. Baron von Richthofen further said that the Russian government maintained a simi lar bureau in Paris, and the Italian gov ernment had one in London. The socialist press, the secretary asseFted, had become the organ of the Russian anarchists. The government had Inquired Into the alleged burglarising of the house of a German physician, living in Germany, by Russian agents, but had been uqable to discover proofs. The secretary suspected that the other allegations made rested on equally flimsy evidence. The secretary did not answer the com plaint regarding the violation of the postal laws, referring the questioner to the direc tor of the post office, when the postal esti mates are discussed. Continuing, the secretary said Herr Haase had reproached the government with lending assistance to Russian agents. This he admitted. The government had no rea son to proteot the revolutionary subjects of a neighboring, friendly state. The common interests of civilization demanded watching over anarchists. The government had no other course than -to. deliver Russian an archists to the Russian government. Other states would not be thankful for Russian anarchists. The prpcedure was not, prop erly speaking, extradition, since the Rus sian government did not formally demand their extradition. The German government simply put troublesome foreigners over whichever frontier it regarded as most suit a>?terr Bebel, who opened the debate, said that a well-informed Russian had assured him that what Germany regarded as an archists did not exist in Russia at all. Herr Bebel characterized the delivery of Rus sians. whose only crime was discontent with the reigning political conditions, to the Russian police to be transported to Siberia and Indefinitely imprisoned as being bar barism. Such a conservative leader as Count von Limburg (a member of the reichstag) would undoubtedly be deported to Siberia If he undertook to advocate in Russia what he advocated in the German parliament, ^he German police, Herr Bebel asserted, searched the house of a Russian living at Charlottenburg, on suspicion based on forged letters. , .. . Herr Norman, conservative, declared that his party thoroughly indorsed Baron von Richthofen's answer, and said he hoped the government would continue In Its present path. The socialists greeted this statement with derisive laughter. Herr Richter, radi cal. said it might suit the conservatives to see Russian conditions introduced into Ger many. "and Baron von Richthofen's speech." he continued, "shows that we are In a fair way to this end. The spy system permitted here must fill every German with disgust." Dr. Sattler, the national liberal leader, expressed the wish that the government had given explanation of the several cases mentioned in the debate. The reichstag then adjourned. GOVERNOR HUNT'S MESSAGE Recommendations to the Legislative Assembly of Porto Rico. Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. SAN JUAN, P. R? January 13, 1904. Governor Hunt's annual message was read yesterday at the opeuing of the second and last session of the second biennial legis lative assembly of Porto Rico, and was well received. It Is deemed here a strong and able state paper. The message opens with words of encour agement and urges the people to have cour age for the future; it also tells them that recent events have attracted attention to countries about here, and that Porto Rico leads in demonstration of the fact that American government will uplift a pa triotic people. The governor advises the people of the island to go ahead and further commend themselves to the .people of the United States. He urges strict economy, with no increase In taxation except in excise taxes on liquors and tobacco. He earnestly recom mends that the islajiid adopt an American code of civil procedure arid advises ways and means lor better municipal service. In view of the faCOthai |jy l'ar the greater number of deaths in Porto Rico are from tropical aensmia, tbe governor asks for a special appropriatfmi tor' the study and eradication of the disease, thus hoping to benefit the entire tropic il world. Touching on the coming biennial elections, he urges fairness and aavlses the creation of election inspector* and * closer approach to American systems. i One of the most important recommenda tions is that there shall he^a prompt settle ment by a special tribunaf of all questions now pending between the Catholic Church In Porto Rico, and the government. This is a delicate but vitally essential problem in the Island. The governor declares against road con struction by contracts and calls for a re peal of the law under which such work is now being done. He recommends a tr.al ot the contract system for ma'ntalning ro.ids. He advises leases, rather than sales, ot government lands, the income from such leases to be devoted partly to education. He recommends, among "other things, sur veys and Torrens' system of land registra tion. laws against carrying weapons, strongly favors Industrial schools and asks for an Increased appropriation for the ex hibit of Porto Rico at the St. Louis expo sition. He declares that this is no time for lagging or for local partisanship which in terferes with progress. The entire message is couched In forcible, e-irnesi and scholar ly language, and is intensely American in spirit. The Vine street school building at Kala mazoo, Mich., burned yesterday afternoon and the loss will be about $20,000. Five hundred pupils, trained by the fire drill, left the building inside of a minute without accident to one of them. | Big Midwinter | Closing 1 Out I Shoe-Cuts in i Almost !

ROCKVILLE. Md., January 19, 1SXM. A special meeting of the board of public school commissioners for this county was held here today for the purpose of provid ing means for the relief of the crowded condition of the Rockville High School. It was represented that the building is inad equate to comfortably accommodate the large number of pupils enrolled, and quite a number of children have been re fused admission because, of lack of room. It is claimed that under the existing con ditions the teachers are unable to do jus tice to either the pupils or themselves be cause of the vast amount of work required to be crowded into the day. It was de cided by the board to appoint a vice prin cipal, and Prof. S. A. Lehman, principal of the school at Galthersburg, was chosen for the position. It was also decided to rent additional quarters, apart from the high school, for the primary grade. The changes mentioned are expected to afford tempo rary relief, but the opinion is general that the erection of a new and up-to-date higli school building for Rockville cannot be much longer postponed. The question of closing the colored schools of the county was also considered. The slate appropriation for the mainte nance of these schools has recently betn greatly reduced. The sentiment of the board was in favor of closing the colored schools in March, but definite action was deferred until the next meeting, which will be held February 4. William Douglass and Bronson Smith, yoftng colored men of this place, w<ere be fore Justice of the Peace John B. Brewer here today upon the charge of disorderly conduct on the streets of Rockville. Each was lined ?1 and costs. Smith going to jail In default of payment. Mr. Robert B. Peter, the recently elected state's attorney for this county, took Iho oath of office before Judge Henderson a few days ago and entered upon the dis charge of the duties of the office. He im mediately resigned as auditor of the court, a position he held for eleven years. The new state's attorney is one of the younger members of the Rockville bar, and one of Its ablest. He was educated at the Rockville Academy and Hampden-Sid ney College, Va. For several years he taught in an Indian school at Crow Creek agency. South Dakota, and while there be came proficient in the Sioux language. He later became issue clerk at the Crow Creek agency, which position he gave up to ac cept an appointment as clerk in the otflcc of the clerk of the circuit court at this place. He attended night lectures at the National University Law School, Washing ton, graduating in 1S03 second In his class. He was admitted to the bar the year pre ceding his graduation, and soon afterward was appointed auditor, and for eleven years filled the quasi-judicial position with mark ed ability, not a decision rendered by him having been reversed. Mr. Peter is a brother of Mr. Arthur Peter of the Washington bar, and of Kd ward C. Peter of Rockville, formerly state's attorney for this county. He married Miss Helen Lowry, youngest daughter of the late Major Horatio B. Lowry, United States marine corps. At the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Montgomery Count}- National Bank of Rockville the following directors were , elected: Spencer C. Jones. Hattersly W. , Talbott, James B. Henderson, Richard H. i Stokes, John H. Gassaway, Wilson B. j Tschiffely, Richard Poole, Lawrence All nutt, Frederick P. Hayes, James E. Will lams, William B. Mobley and Joseph T. Moore.
