Enterprising South America Re public Celebrates Next Year. l ri>m the New York Sun. For the people of this country there is a real as well as a sentimental interest in the centenary the Argentine Republic is to celebrate next year. Nowhere else in the world have the ideas promulgated in the Constitution of the United States been more faithfully copied, and nowhere else in the world is there a nation which 'in the past fifty years has risen more rapidly to commercial prosperity or na tional greatness than has Argentina. Of the growth of Buenos Aires every new traveler supplies additional testi mony. Its grot's, its parks, its transcon tinental railroads, its docks, its popula tion, is now rising to a million and a half, which will make it perhaps tomor row dispute with Paris the title of the first Latin city in the world, as it has already distanced Rome. Naples and Mad rid for second place?these have already become the common coin of every con sular anil commercial report. Yet it is only by an occasional citation of facts that a real measure of Argentine progress is supplied. With an area a tliird as large as Canada, it has today a greater population, it exports more and it imports hut little less than the Dominion. Of the 7.<"?i,u*j population which the last ?ensus disclosed, not less than 4,000,<J<:0 represent the survivors of the descendants of the -I.OuO.ujo Europeans, half of them Ttalian and a quarter Spanish, who have emigrated to this southern republic in the past half century. The Argentine Republic had its origin in the consequences of the Napoleonic in vasion of Spain. While still a loyal col ony. its inhabitants captured one British army and defeated another. The 25th of May. 181??. which Argentines still cele brate as u national birthday, saw the formation of that junta which superseded the government of a Spanish viceroy, and from then until 1822 Argentina played an honorable and conspicuous role in the battles of South America, the contests of Peru, Chile and other Spanish colonies for liberty. If the earlier years of Argentine his tory were marked by revolution and dis order. the influx of Spanish. French and Italians land Argentina has steadily at ti acted the best class of Latin emigra tion" has wholly changed the conditions. Even the disagreement with '""bile, its rival in politics as well as progress, has at last l>een settled pacifically, and today one completed transcontinental railway and one shortly to he completed indicate the growing commercial solidarity of these two progressive South American coun tries. It will be a fortunate thing if the com ing celebration shall open the way to a closer relation between the Cnited States and the great South American republic which will then observe the anniversary ?-f its first century of independence, l'espite the ties of race, language and religion which bind the .Argentines to Europe, there is certainly in similar con stitutions and similar Ideals of an inde pendent America a basis for greater sym pathy, closer commercial relations and better knowledge of each other lor the Fnited Stat?^ and the Argentine Republic. Bombardier Wells Coming Back. NEW YORK, November 2.?Bombardier Wells, England's heavyweight champion, has announced tvhat he is to sail in a week or two for this country. He hopes to be able to strengthen the impression followers of boxing on this side of the water have of his prowess, and, of course, gather in some money. When he makes his reappearance here he will tin'* plenty of work to do, provided he does not de mand more than his services are worth. t Scene at Lnndeok (Tyrol) which 1m to be Meen on the opeclal trip* over the Aantrlon empire. Plans Are Made for Excursions for Benefit of American Tourists. With the view of conducting many ex cursions through Austria for American tourists, the Canadian Pacific, railroad has arranged with the Austrian state railways to run special trains of cars of American design over the empire. The service was started last August and met with so much success that new cars of the designs used by the Canadian rail road are now being constructed in Aus tria and will be ready for the spring travel. Not only are the cars modern in every detail, but special observation features will he found. At first there will be three itineraries?Vienna to Innsbruck; Innsbruck to Buchs. and Salzburg to Trieste. On each route various interven ing cities and points of interest will be visited. It is said the plan of the Ameri can railroad has met with much ap proval in Austria, with the result that many of the cities are trying to have themselves put on the new railroad map. The American tourists who, last Au gust. toured Austria in American style were entertained by municipal officials and various civic organizations. They took the Vienna-Innsbruck trip. In Vi enna they breakfasted at the Kursalon, lunched in the Rathaus and had tea in Schlossrestaurant Kobenzl. At the Rat haus they met many public men, promi nent in the official life of the Austilan capital. Visited Many Cities. Much time was spent in automobile tours of the city, accompanied by guides, who explained the various points of interest. In the evening the visitors at tended a play at the Kaisergarten. Other cities visited included Melk, Spitz, Salz burg, Viliach, Trieste. Kl^genfur and Innsbruck. Part of the journey was made by boat. Returning to London to em bark for the United States and Canada, some of the tourists visited Boulogne, while others went via Strassburg, Brus sels and Ostend. In the Hungarian parliament interested members have urged that the Austrian state railways arrange that the visitors come to Budapest. According to officials of the Canadian Pacitic railroad, Austria was the country chosen because it is said that it offers more of interest to Americans, but, ow ing to various difficulties of transporta tion, has not been visited as much as some other European countries. The company has issued a beautiful illus trated book describing the country, espe cially the points to be visited. Full information regarding the trip may be obtained from any Canadian Pa cific railroad office. OLD AGE A DISEASE? Speculation on Preserving Body From Unfriendly Bacteria. From the London Mornin; Post. Many conjectures have followed Metch nikoff's fantastic speculation that old age is merely a disease, due to the invasion of a bacillus, and that if this unfriendly I micro-organism could but be ext irpated | life might be prolonged, if not indefinitely, then at least considerably. Most physiol ogists reject any such idea, and believe that living cells, living tissues and living organs having done their work, having undergone, or having effected, a certain number of transformations, can do no more; and. in a word, that death is a function of life. Some have suggested, however, that if the body could be ster ilized of its bacteria, as Cohendy, a French biologist, has sterilized chicks, and could be preserved from their ad vances. and if, furthermore, the pro cesses of life could be slowed, then it might he possible to preserve an indi vidual for some years in a state of sus pended animation. The idea is. of course, as old as Indian legend, and depends for its pra?-ti<-al realization on methods which we do not at present possess of steriliz ing and preserving the body, as well as of suspending and of restoring its activ ities at will. Moreover, the prospect of being sterilized and sea.'ed up in paraffin wax (for example) till year 3X>0 A.D. would not. except as a scientific experi ment, appeal very strongly to those who have business interests or social interests in the year 1!?1-?besides the risk. But tiie possibility of making the ex periment is recalled by some investiga tions mentioned in a lecture by Dr. Marie Phisalix to the Paris Museum of Natural History on the poisons of the toad. One of these poisons seems to be connected, according to Mme. Phisalix, with the power of abstaining from food for long periods of time?a power which is cer tainly possessed by the toad, and which is associated with legends of the dis covery of toads inclosed in trees or even blocks of stones. Several other traditions concerning the toad were shown by the lecturer to have some foundation. For example, the ??poison" in the skin glands of the toad is said to have the same effect as digitalis?that is to say, it is, in suitable doses, a heart tonic. The simi lar secretion in the salamander has an action like that of strychnine. In both these creatures there are two kinds of poisons?the poison of the mucous glands, which forms in some species of toads a drug more powerful to cause sneezing than any known, and that of the large glands of the back, or poison glands properly so-called. The "toad poison" from these if administered to cats or dogs in sufficient quantity causes diffi culty of breathing and sickness. The salamander poison is more dangerous and produces convulsions and death. Mme. Phisalix says that the presence of these poisons in the animals secreting them confers immunity against snake bite. High Schoof Foot Ball Teams Forced to Drop Some. BEHIND IN THEIR STUDIES McKinley Manual Training Loses Five, While Others Also Suffer More or Less. Raw and presumably unconditioned men will have to uphold high school hon ors on the foot ball field, if the teams play under the rules and drop the stu dents who have been held ineligible un der the faculty advisory marks. Five men were dropped from the McKinley Man ual Training School team Friday be cause the faculty decided they had fallen behind the proper marks in their school work. With this situation facing the school officials, there is a silent war going on in the high schools. Many members of the faculties believe foot ball snould be abol ished entirely from the school life, while others are strongly in favor of it. If a team from Manual Training School meets Central High School on the grid iron this w?ek, it will be a team of con ditioned players, or no game will be played, if the determination of Coach Hecox Is carried out. With players hurt in nearly every game this season, high school foot ball people understand thoroughly that one more serious accident is likely to stop the game entirely, and for that reason are taking particular pains to make the games as safe as possible, and to put men in uniforms who will not be ex hausted easily. ? Others Also Lose Flayers. McKinley Manual Training School is not the only one of the high schools to lose men through advisory marks. Prac tically every other team in the scholas tic circuit lost good players, who will have to pay some slight attention to their studies before they will be allowed to de fend the honor of their school on the foot ball field again. It is very difficult to come up to both athletic and scholastic requirements in the high schools if coaches and faculty live up to their ideals. The fact that many Doys have to work until midnight on their books, after having practiced foot ball for two or three hours in the afternoon, is regarded as decidedly bad training for mind or body. Coaches in the high schools know this and have to face it the best they can. In one of the high schools the accusation is made against another big school that scholastic requirements are winked at during foot ball season, and that boys are allowed to play on base ball and foot ball teams who never get far enough to take graduation examinations. Grant in Hour of Victory. Morris Schaff, In the Atlantic. Well, Grant seated himself in front of his tent, and what do you suppose he talked about? The surrender, of course. No, he turned to Ingalls and inquired: "Ingalls. do you remember that old white mule that So-and-so used to ride when we were in the City of Mexico?" "Why, perfectly:" exclaimed the diplo matic Ingalls, one of the best poker play ers of the old army, who, having to draw suddenly on his wits (it is barely possible that he had never even heard of the old mule before), filled his hand as usual. Ingalls was clever. I used to look at him with a boy's keen interest. A man of the world, true as steel to his friends, and a most efficient officer. Grant, until supper was ready, went on recalling the antics of the long-eared nimble-footed animal in those far-back times; times and mule doubtless evoked by his interview with Lee. His detached naturalness and summer calm in this< hour of victory I could not have believed possible, had 1 not seen him *day after day on the Held. After supper, to the surprise and disap pointment of his staff, who were looking forward to witnessing the ceremonial sur render, Grant announced that on the fol lowing afternoon he should start for Washington. He also expressed, with customary informality, his conviction that all the other Confederate armies would now lay down their arms and that peace would soon prevail. And thus, without vainglory, before his campfire on that knoll, where^now the asters and the bind weed bloom. Grant ended the great day when the sun of the Confederacy set, one among the greatest days, I think, in the annals of our country. No One Should Go Hungry. From the Atlantic. The lesson of modern industrial history has teen that an increase of one factor ordinarily compels a more efficient rear rangement of existing forces, and thus secures a larger product. As long as the supply of laborers augments in amount and ill skill, as long as the motives oper ate that lead to the accumulation of cap ital by the foregoing of present for future satisfaction, as long as the secret ener gies of nature continue to be unearthed and utilized, as long as captains of indus try are evolved with gifted faculties of leadership?so long will the total product of industry increase in greater propor tion than those whose wants it must sup ply. This is true even as to primary food. In the last fifteen years the popu lation of the civilized world, excluding China, has been increasing at the rate of about 1 per cent a year, whereas the average annual increase in the five great cereals, wheat, corn, oats, rye and barley, has been about 2.5 per cent. In other words, production has increased two and a half times as much as was necessary to keep per capita consumption constant. OF HER WHOLE FAMILY Prosecuter Declares Mrs. Lindloff Used Poison to Get Their Insurance. CHICAGO, November 2.?Mrs. Louisa Lindloff. the seeress, concluded today the submission of testimony to hear out a prediction she professed to have read in her magic crystal "ball of fate," that she would be freed of the charge of murdering her flfteen-vear-old son Arthur, for which she has been on trial here this week. The crystal gazer, maintaining- her in nocence not only of this crime but of the corrollary charges by the state that she poisoned four others of her kin, called to the witness stand several chemists. They refuted testimony by the state's experts, and upheld Mrs. Lindloff's defense, that the poison found in the bodies of her relatives was taken in patent medicines, which the victims used to combat a constitutional disease. Found No Evidence of Disease. T he prosecution at once began intro duction of rebuttal testimony. Three physicians who attended the Lindloff boy and two others of the fam ily whose dt-atha the prosecutor had call ed mysterious, in rebuttal, testified that during their close examination of their patients they made no discovery of the disease Mrs. Lindloff swore they suffered from. J. H. Price, an insurance agent, said the applications for insurance made by Mrs. Lindloff for her son stated specific ally that the applicant did not have the ailment she said fen the witness stand he had. Some samples of medicine found in Mrs. Lindloff's home were declared by the physicians to have none of the mineral poison in their composition. "Wholesale Murder Engineer." Attacking Mrs. L,indL bitterly. Assist ant States Attorney Francis M. Lowes characterized her as a "wholesale mur der engineer." He accused her rf having sent her whole family into eternity that she might profit through insurance. . "And before her ?oy's body was cold," he added, "she sent her sweetheart to an insurance office to obtain blanks so that there would be no delay in delivery of the money. "She looked through her magic crystal ?ball of fate,' and she read in its depths not the fate of her dupes, for she knew that; but she found therein the computa tion of her death profits, gleaned from the demise of her own flesh and blood." Mrs. Lindloff winced at the bitterness of the prosecutor's denunciation and look ed at her attorneys pleadingly. They tried to engage her in conversation, but she refused, sitting aghast at the severity of the prosecutor's arraignment. Causes Defendant to Weep. "You have heard a great deal about mineral poison and this, that and the other medicine," he shouted- "I call your attention to the combination of poison and insurance, it was had medicine for all | her kin." Mrs. Lindloff then started to weep. Attorney Guerin demanded a verdict of acquittal for his client. "The state ridi culed her story," lie said, "because they could not disprove it" The case is expected to reach the jury Monday afternoon. Daily Bath in Agra Jail. From the Wide World Magazine. One %of the humorous sights of India is the daily bathing parade in a native prison. In the one we witnessed were youthful, habitual criminals, varying in age from nine to fifteen years, taking their daily dip at Agra jail. While the governor watches proceedings from the shade of a tree the prisoners, each man fettered and carrying a bowl of beaten brass or steel, are led out in double file to a stone pavement, on ea:h side of which runs a shallow trough of water. At the command of a native warder bowls are filled and waisicloths are washed. At a second order the prisoners scoop water over themselves and then sink smartly to their haunches, one behind another, in parallel lines. Again comes a snappy order from the warder, and each man begins vigorously to rub the hack of the fellow in front of him. When the warder judges the "massage" Is complete his voice brings the two lines to a smart right-about-face, still on their haunches, and the vigorous rubbing begins again, each man doing for his fellow what his fellow did for him The process, while comical, is a genuine illustr: tion of the saying: "You scratch my hack and I'll scratch yours." except, of course, to the prisoners whose fate brings them to the head or tail of the line, where they re ceive only half the ' treatment" of their follows. Decorous Doings Abroad. KroDi the Atlantic. While tire unaccustomed ears of Europe were shocked at the shrill cries from the rival conventions at Chicago and Balti more, there was equal turbulence in the Italian parliament at Rome. There were shouts and cat-calls and every sign of uncontrollable violence. What are the "reasons annexed" to all this uproar? 1 do not know. In Budapest such unparlia mentary expressions as "swine," "liar," "thief'and "assassin" were freely used In debate. An honorable member who had been expelled for the use of too strong language, returned to "shoot up" the house. The chairman, after dodging three shots, declared that he must posi tively insist on better order. In the German reichstag a member threatens the kaiser with the fate of A =3 409 to 417 Seventh Street.

Charles I, if he does not speedily mend his ways. He suggests as a fit im perial residence the castle where the mad King of Bavaria was alowed to exercise his erratic energies without injury to the commonwealth. At the mention of Charles I the chamber was in an uproar, and amid a tumult of angry voices the session was brought to a close. In Russia, unseemly clamor is kept from the carefully guarded ears of the czar. There art conspires with nature to produce peace. We read of the czar's re cent visited to his ancient capital. "The police during the previous night fnade three thousand arrests. The czar and czarina drove through the city amid the ringing of bells and with banners flying." On reading this item the American reader plucks up heart. If. during the Chicago convention, the police had made three thousand arrests the sessions might have been as quiet as those of the duma. Modern languages Most in Favor. From the Westmiuster Gazette. The Mercure de France has been mak ing some inquiries as to the respective popularity of the various modern lan guages in the schools of Europe, and it finds that French is still far ahead of all competitors. It says that in England German finds less and less favor, and that pupils who have any option in re gard to a modern language always choose French. In France, however, since 1870, German has perhaps secured a preponder ance over English in the Lycees. In Ger many the study of French has progressed to the detriment of English, but the gov ernment lias intervened in order to de velop the teaching of English, which it regards as of great importance in com mercial matters. Freuch )s now taught in Italy more than ever before, but Ger man is also gaining some ground, espe cially in the north. In Spain French has more pupils than any other foreign lan guage, and English comes next. Left-Handed Linguists. From Harper's Weekly. For the last twenty years systematic attempts have been made to teach chil dren to use both right and left hands indiscriminately. But the results have been amusingly unsatisfactory. The ex planation apparently is that the power of the hand is intimately associated with the unfolding of the language sense and that the cerebral centers which regulate language are located on the left side that is to say. in relation to the centers which regulate the control of the right hand and arm. The examination of thou sands of human nkeletons has demon strated that in all cases in which the right arm is better developed than the left there is evident a correspondingly satisfactory development of the left side of the brain. It follows that left-handed persons must have less linguistic ability than the right-handed and that children obliged to use both hands indiscriminate ly will have a diminished power of ready speech and an ability markedly less in learning and retaining languages. Our Superior Girl Babies. From the Chicago Record-Herald. Girl babies are said to show a marked superiority over boy babies at the health contest in progress at the Iowa state fair. Almost all the girls are bigger and heavier than the boys, according to the medical experts who have examined them. Yet within the last week a man in Chicago to whom had been born a third daughter committed suicide because of that fact. Much fear was expressed in the home of Mrs. John Jacob Astor that her posthumous child might be a girl, and the birth of a son brought re joicing. It is evident that even though girl babies are superior and daughters have a better chance to develop along natural lines today than they ever had they are not so much desired in some homes, of the rich and poor, as boys. Why? Perhaps because, in the case of the poor, boys usually have a greater earn ing power; perhaps, in the case of the rich, because of the old idea that man is the superior of the sexes or be cause he will carry the family name. But this is the age of woman's advance ment, and the superiority shown by the Iowa girl babies probably marks only a beginning. As they grow into woman hood those daughters of the Hawkeye state may so far excel, in every way, the present boy babies that no one will ever again express a preference for a boy. The Dress Reformer's Cry. From the New York Sun. The dress reformer is abroad asain. She rises now to declare that the present style of gown, or frock. Is such that it shows a woman's entire figure, with all its defects, even to knock knees. She. therefore, demands a reformation in styles. She clamors for wide skirts and general indeflniteness in lines. I>et us all hope that she will fail to obtain the de sire of her restless soul. Let us all en deavor to convince her that the present style of woman's frocks, when not over done, is one of the most gracefufand be coming that she has ever worn. The sim ple lines of this present style are its highest recommendation. The straight fall of the skirt is something to admire. It has something of the grace of the classic drapery. It is only when the un wise woman who always "goes the limit" has her skirt cut so narrow that It cramps the freedom of her stride that the lamentable revelation of knock knees takes place. Every woman who is moved by the cries of the dress reformers should get out the daguerreotypes of her ancestors "The People's Dentist" That's what the people call me?because 1 am so gentle and careful in treating their teeth, so as not to give them one in stant of pain while 1 am caring for them.

Surely those women won ad miration from the male sex in spite of the manner in which they garbed them selves and not because of it. Collars, sleeves, bosoms, waists and skirts nil looked as if they had been cut out in the dark and without patterns. Do not, love ly woman, go back to those hideous things! But there Is one detail of the costume feminine which will admit of im mediate improvement, and for a reason precisely opposite to that offered by the reformers. This detail does not disclose too liberally, but on the contrary con ceals altogether too much of the charms of our partners in life. This detail is the hat. When a beautiful, or even a tol erably good-looking, woman puts on a hat which slides down over her head till it hides every bit of her glorious hair and. proceeds onward till it covers her eyes, and leaves only the lip of he.- nose and her chin to be seen, she is guilty of a public affront. Every man has a right to enjoy the glory of the world in which he lives, and the most glorious thing in it is a beautiful, wholesome, clear-eyed woman. Let the female of our species reform her hat. l.et her wear something which will show to its fullest advantage the shape of her head, the color of her hair, the light of her eyes and the sun shine of her smile. She will tind for one thing that mere man will readily forgive her for modifying the present tight skirt so that no more knock knees will be re vealed.
