KETV HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, MONDAY .MAT 13 1907 CRSZY OHSGRDBBIHC. Holland Has a Continual Performance in Cleaning. ITS STREETS WASHED A Land Where the Pumps and the Besoms Never Get a Rest. Life In Holland Is one eternal spring housecleaning. Dirt Is discouraged in the very germ, and cleanliness is the patron saint of the country. Scrub bing brushes are exhausted by the mil lion, and water Is wasted by the seas ful In the everlasting crusade against the unseen enemy. A writer from Utrecht, describing her experience for the (New York Sun says: I am alone, for my husband is bus tling somewhere in Germany, but I do not scream, I do not feel the slight est alarm or resentment, for I have learned In three months' residence in Holland that such a face is not likely to be that of a burglar or a ruffian or a lunatic, but of a window washer, whose occupation never ceases not that he Is engaged at the top of a step ladder cleaning win lows every minute of the day, but when the already ivn peaceable panes have been soused and rubbed and polished there is something else for him to scrub, be it floors, door handles, the front of the house, the Sidewalk or the stones of the street. Scrubbing Is incessant in Holland. When this man fall3 down from sheer fatigue, another' will take his place and scrub spots whereon dust has had no time to gather since the last scrub bing. It is a mania for dustlessness .that possesses the country, which is so damp in winter that dust cannot form, and a result is the dally realization of legendary Spotless Town. This is no fanciful flight of an irresponsible pen. It fills a New Yorker's heart with envy and despair to see the way these peo-, pie take care of their streets. At 9 o'clock every night twenty-four men assemble in front of the hotel, which Is near the corner of the Vry tiurg, each in preposterous wooden shoes and armed with a huge besom of tough twigs with a long handle. They stand in a line at the curb and talk and laugh uproariously like a lot of grownup children just out of school. Meantime an immense barrel on wheels drawn by a horse rolls along the very middle of the street, pouring .'out a generous flood of water. Imme diately behind It come two revolving brushes, also horse drawn, that con Vert the dirt Into fine mud and push It In a general way toward the gut ters. ( Then comes the second water wagon, no mere overgrown barrel, but an im-' mense tank, from which water spurts Jn compelling floods toward each curb and such floods! The pioneer barrel made an American street sprinkler eeem like a toy, and the second water Wtgon equally outdoes the first in the torrential volume of Us deluge. AH this is but preliminary, for when the second water wagon has passed the 1 twenty-four men get busy, and the real work of cleaning the street begins. They form a V, the apex just behind the water wagon, the arms extending to, the curbs, and they operate their besoms with appallng vigor, scraping Up ' every minute particle of dirt that escaped the revolving brushes and sweeping into the gutters. With every stroke at least one In the (brigade gets a drenching from his neighbor's besom, but they are indif ferent to that it's all in the night's work apparently and as they hasten onward there is a rhythmical clump clump Of the wooden shoes and a swish-swish of the besoms positively Inspiriting. 'Laqt pf all comes the commander of the brigade. He marches well within the arms of the V, unprovided with a besom, clapping his hands to establish the rhythm of the sweeping and en hancing the hand claps with stentorian shouts of command that surely could be heard a mile away. Thus he drives the wedge forward, keeping the brigade up to its work, never letting It get so far behind the water wagon that the flood will have lost Its force to carry off the refuse, for there Is no following scavenger . wagon. The dirt, coming to the gut ters while the flood is at its height, is carried away and lost somewhere in a , canal - . This is only one of several similar brigades that work all through the night until every street In the city has been flooded and scrubbed and when morning comes the highways and by ways are cleaner than a pebble strewn beach at low tide. This Incessant cleaning in Holland gets on the nerves and becomes a nuisance. Think of walking apprecia tively along one of those spick and span sidewalks and suddenly having to hold up your skirts and . wade through running water, all because a man or a woman has begun to deluge the front of a house from a hose at tached to a hydrant. Once past the flood, you may be startled until you get uneA to it by an extraordinary biped, lieaJless and arm less, emerging backward from an open door. It wears a skirt from which legs protrude ..ending in wooden shoes, and it sways In portentous rhythm as it advances or, if I may so put It, recedes , toward you. : If you' have the courage and curios. .' Ity to watch this strange creature, it i resolves itself presently into a woman. 6he bends over, feet wide apart, until her hand's touch the floor. She is pro vided with a bowl of ammoniated wa tor and a piece of chamois skin. Having started at the farther end of the entry or hall, she is preceedjng backward, pulling her bowl after her and scrubbing the floor. lArrived at the door, she scrubs the threshold and cr.tinue to recede across the side walk, scrubbing all the way, and if a passer happens to step on her clean section she never rises, but waits pa tiently till he has gone and then faith fully scrubs out the faint mark of his feet And when at last the sidewalk 3a as clean as a bread board she re moves her woden shoes and returns to Uie house in her stocking fect. t It adds to the picturesqueness the first time you encounter it to see the bank of a canal lined with servant girls shaking and beating rugs and carpets and curtains of all descrip tions, but when you have stayed long enough in a city to recognize the pit terns of the various circles and realize ' that at least once every week every such thing is taken up or taken down and oarrled outdoors for such a clean ing as t'.ie New England housewife does only in the spring and fall you come to feel a vicarious fatigue and wonder if it is all worth the trouble. I am aware- that I ought not to speak of it in this way. Rather should I lay stress on the comfort of knowing that the washbowls in your hotel are cleaned with hot water and thoroughly wiped every morning. The servants lie in wait to see us go forth for a while that they may get into our rooms and put them in perfect order. One old man attached to the hotel, apparently has nothing to do but fetch water for the interminable clean ing from the city pump in the middle of the Vryburg. There is no canal adjacent to any side of this square, and so the weekly housecleaning takes places in the great open space, which becomes alive with energetic servants and waving fabrics from an antimacassar to an eight-yard square of brussels, and every minute of the day the pump Is in requisition, pecple often standing in line to wait their turn until the visitor, forgetful for the moment, becomes alarmed at the extravagant waste of water. Then she remembers that water Is the most plentiful commodity in Hol land, more abundant even than tha land. The Dutchman, however, so far as I can observe, never uses water to quench his thirst. He does have various kinds of sweet ened or aerated waters for the table, but plain water is good enough for the several kinds of washing to which he devotes himself; hence a frequent dif ficulty in the dining room. We do not care for wine or beer at our meals, which is in itself a deep mystery and probably a disappoint ment also to the hotel people, but they never dream of putting on a carafe of water and glasses. AVhen we call for water they bring one of those bottles of aerated or sweetened beverages. Then come linguistic experiments. Water is a Dutch word, and it is pronounced almost as in English, but as our knowledge of Dutch is limited to the words that are the same as or sin'IIar to English words, we have to resort to French and German to make our special wants understood. We de mand in French water for to drink, is it not? And I unblushlngly raise my closed fist to my Hps and make a weird lapping and sucking noise that never fails to disconcert the waiter; also it never fails to bring a return of the aerated bottle. Then we demand in lucid German, of which Dutch Is an offshoot, and sometimes therefore comprehensible to a Dutchman, water, even so the same water the hands to wash in already, whereupon the waiter always sees a great light and triumphantly brings us finger bowls.

Adams, a wealthy produce merchant, of Wethersfleld, rabies in its most virulent form, and he is now in New York undergoing treatment at the Pasteur Institute. Mr. Adams, who owns a great many cows, for several years, kept one named Bessie for the pet of his family. Sev eral days ago the cow became sick, and Mr. Adams determ'ned to give her a hypodermic injection. As he Inserted the needle the cow suddenly buried her teeth in his left hand, at the same time throwing him to the ground about four feet away. Before he reached the house his hand began to swell. His family physician was summoned immediately, and he advised Mr. Adams to go to the Pasteur Institute at once. No time was lost in reaching the city. Dr. Wheeler of the Pasteur Institute, took him in charge, and it Is now said that he is doing well, al though it will be 11 days before he can be pronounced out of danger. Meanwhile the discovery that Mr. Adams' cow had rabies caused great excitement throughout . the whole neighborhood. The cow has been shot, and a portion of its brain is being sent to the Pasteur Institute for examina tion. The bite of a dog several months ago is the only cause to which the dis ease may be traced. Several other cows on farms near the Adams' place have been bitten by the same stray dog, which is supposed to have given rabies to the cow of Mr. Adams, and much anxiety is felt among the owners. Ev ery one is searching for the dog, and all are determined to kill all other dogs, the owners of which are unknown. LIGHTAISiG'S FIIEAKS, Thunderstorm Pluya Cruel Jokea In Sevrrcl Place. South Norwalk, May 11. In the first thunderstorm of the season here this morning lightning knocked every pane of glass out of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Low, in Westport avenue, and tossed Mr. and Mrs. Low out of ! bed. They were shocked but mot in jured. The hennery of Addison Brown, in the same street, was struck, and half of the several hundred fowls were kill ed and the other half were entirely stripped of their feathers. Many of the hens were made blind. Another bolt tore through the barn of James Beers and left a hole that a team of oxen could be driven' through. A nearby stone wall was struck and sent in all directions like powder. Sev eral fissures were opened in the ground, one of which was deep and big enough to bury a horse in. James Beers' house was riddled with holes, as though un der barbardment by solid shot. Miss Edith Beers was stunned by the hock and seemed paralyzed for a short time, but has1 now recovered. The several resulting fires were ex tinguished and further damage was j prevented. HE HID OF COD ' IN HISTORY OF NATION (Continued from Ninth Page.) slander of the past, we may truly say, that England rather than Spain, Prot estantism rather than Romanism, gave hospitality to these ideas; and the new world rather than the old world was the place for their great development. Names are significant, and I would es pecially urge the young to make a habit of understanding and remember ing names as they express and hold in mind great facts. The Spaniards who planted the oldest city our our eastern shcre landed on the day consecrated to the memory of the great North Ameri can bishop and relying on the form of their religion and making him the natron saint called the river and the city after him, St. Augustine. Elizabeth, queen of England, when Rr.leieh attempted to make a settle ment on our coast, called the entire ter ritory, in honor of her unweddedi state Virginia. The colonists of the first per manent English settlement landing un der a charter from King James I. gave royal names to everything. They nam ed the two capes at the entrance to the bay after the king's sobs, Cape Charles and Cape Henry; they christened the river after the king himself, James; they named their settlement James- tewn. The Pilgrims and their succes snrs who later settled, this, our part of the country, with tender remem- trance of the country from which they came repeated its names. They called the territory New England; they called their settlements Plymouth, Boston, New London, Stratford, and so forth in their desire to perpetuate the past. Not list:: after 1660 did a man arrive who en bodied the new spirit of the new times and baptized his settlement, ac cording to an Idea, and it was reserved for William Pcnn, the Quaker, the man of the spirit, to cull his settlement Philadelphia, Brotherly Love. It was fitting, and It was in fulfillment of this spirit that here in the city of brother ly love, the seed planted in these sev eral colonies should burst Into beauti ful blossom in the Declaration of Inde pendence and should bear fruit In the foimation of our republic. It is fitting, also that Pennsylvania not only because of its geographical position but because of Us spirit should be the "k?ystone," th.i central and binding state of our re public. But in all this history whose blossom and fruit we have mentioned, the set tlement at Jamestown played a most important part. The avowed purposes in sending these colonists were threo, namely, to advance the kingdom of God; to advance the kingdom of Eng land: to secure the future good of the commonwealth. The first and the Inst of these pur poses have been achieved. In this achievement the colony of Jamestown and the state of Virginia must ever be remembered. The cavaliers whosr allegiance was so greatly to the crown soon died. The prisoners who were sent over were often political offenders who were of eood family. The other crim inals did not pla.v any Important part in the history of the colony. The per manent settlers were younger sons of noble families; members of families whose sons had gone into trade; citi zens of London; and well educated gen tlenen. Im this infant colony, first founded, was built the first cabin, and h:e was the first home. Here was the first marriage of white people, John Laydon, aged twenty-nine, and Anne Burras, aged fourteen. Here was born the first white child of' Virginia, Virginia Laydon. Here was the first church. Captain John Smith says; "I well remember we did hang1 an awning an old sail to three or four trees to phbflow us from the sun; our walls wer rails of wood; our seats were hewed trees till we. cut planks; our pulpit a bar of wood nailed to two neighboring trees. This was our church till we built a homely thing like a barn." But the sexton rang the bell at the church at 10 o'clock in the morn Injr and at 4 o'clack In the afternoon and "each man addressed himself to prayers." The governor who tried to transplant royalty worshipped seated on a green velvet chair with his guard of red coats standing on each side and behind him. Here was the first trial by jury. Here, also, was the first pop ular and representative assembly. So early in 1603 and 1609 there were tiro tests against exclusive government by the king. Concessions were made by the king. And at length In 1819 the several corporations then existing were were permitted to elect representatives to a general assembly. A popular gov ernment was instituted with some twenty burgesses, six or more council ors and the governor who had the right of veto: This was the embrvonic form of every state government now existing among us and of our federal government. The assembly met for some time in the church. Its delibera tions were opened with prayer. A writer of the times said: "But foras much as men's affairs do little prosper when God's service Is neglected, all the burgesses took their places in the chnir till the prayer was said by Mr. Bu'.k that it would please God to guard and sanctify all our proceedings to nis own glory and to the good of this plantation." Here also the first college was founded in a settlement called Henrico but it was subsequently destroyed with the settlement. William and Mary college subsequently founded is next to Harvard the oldest college In the country. The church at Williams town which succeeded th'. church of Jamestown as the court church, prob ably has on its roll the names of more illustrious men of our early national hiftorv than any other church. The love of liberty and learning and of re vision also was in the hearts of these men of Virginia. The issue of the set tlement was not the prerogatives of the king but the rights of the people; not the wealth of the mother country but the welfare of the citizens of this new land; not the perpetuation of ancient institutions in the form of Imperial power and arbitrary control, but the eetsblishment ot free institutions. From this first colony, and from the larger colony and state into which it grew came John West, elected gover, nor to succeed the royal governor, Sir John Harvey; Patrick Henry to plead with eloauence the cause of freedom; Thomas Jefferson, to preside as chalr- Jman of a commiftee of congress and to (draft the Declaration of Independence; , George Washington, to command the Continental armies, and here, were bon six of the first ten presidents of our United States, five of whom were presidents of the state at the time of holding that high office and their terms f office cover thirty-six years. Later events may have crowded mere tacts somewhat into the background, but it is only just that on the anniversary ot tne first settlement or fcngnsn peo ple on our shores and when the nation commemorates that event in an exposi tion at Jamestown, those facts of early history should be recalled and honor ttivca to them to whom it is due. Great are the changes which have oc curred In these three centuries. God's thoughts are higher than man's thoughts, and His ways are higher than man's ways. His judgment be tween many peoples and His decision concerning the nations are for the wel fare of men. No province, save one that one practically a republic, now gives allegiance to a European throne. The source of authority is not a roval charter but the voice of the people. The authority of the United States does not enter the church as president attended by a retinue but as a man, a sinner needing salvation, a saint among be lievers, a servant of God learning His will that he mav do it. But better things than men had hop ed have come to pass. The descendants of Spain occupy their territory, but un der forms of government through which they should learn liberty. The Roman church is here, but under in fluences which tend to cast off ancient forms which have lost their meaning and influence. The Puritans have won freedom for themselves but have broad ened both their ideas and their influ ence. Ihe Quakers nave tound place for the authority of the spirit but have learned somethinz of the human need of the letter for purposes of education. And the cavaliers have learned that ser vice is the best title to nobility. There are a few things which we as a people snoukt rememner, it we would cherish and perpetuate the great things of the spirit which we have in herited. They are such as these. An aristocracy which comes into being by searching ancient European graveyards for names, and old church records for titles, and by scraping old coats of arms for mottoes, is a spurious aris tocracy and the gilt often tarnished. An aristocracy resting upon character and conduct is the only aristocracy of worth. 'A leisure class who like the lilies toll not, but, unlike the birds, hEve store houses which other hands hava filled la valueless for the welfnre of a nation. An ignorant class who claim the things which they have not earned and who demand the things which they cannot use is a dangerous class. If we would perpetuate the things which have made us sreat as a nation wo much cheris-'h certain ideas. They ar1 such as these. The nobility of rrlan ual toil and of all useful labor; the sac redness of marriage and the sancity of the family; the value of education which qualifies for service, and the power of true religion to enlighten the conscience, to direct the conduct, to purify the affections and to perfect the character of men.

Thiessen, member of the Nebraska house of representatives, a prosperous farmer and banker of Jan sen, is said to be the only Mennonite who ever sat as a member of a legisla tive body. The Mennonites do not be lieve in war and fearins that partici pation in elections and government might make them subjects for the armv. they have until recent years re fused to take any part In political af fairs. Mr. Thiessen is one of the more liberal-minded members of the sect, and he was among the most industri ous members of the legislature which recently adjourned. He was a "square deal'' member and voted for every re form measure that was considered by the house. There are about two thousand Men nonite families in Nebraska, living In about five counties in the southeastern cart of the state. One colony came frcm Germany, the others from Rus sia. All of them speak the German language. The abhorrence of war has clunj to the descendants of Menno Sin on, the Catholic priest of Holland who founded the sect about 450 years ago, and it has been the cause of their migrations. It was because they fear ed service in the Russian army that tha great migration to America took place in 1874, when Mr. Thiessen and his family, together with thousands of other Mennonites, came to the United States. All of them were slow to be come citizens. Not until Mr. Thiessen was nomin ated for the legislature did he obtain his. final citizenship papers, nnd he is now too old to be drafted for military service. A majority of the Mennonites tl.lnk we should have nothing to do with the governments of this world," said Mr. Thiessen. "They still refuse to vote. They keep their own counsel and want to live with their own people and away from the temptations of the world. But many of them are be gin-in;: to see that it is their duty to holt, shape the laws. Some of our preachers, even, are looking at it in the same way. Last winter one of the bishops of our church visited mo in Lincoln and took great interest in the proceedings of the legislature. But h is one of the younger generation. The old preachers still cling to the old ideas." In 1795 Catherine II of Russia made a covenant with the Mennonites whereby they were to be granted per petual immunity from military service, But this was revoked many years Inter and in 1871 announcement was made that after ten years all Menonites would be liable to military service. Thereupon they began leaving the country in great numbers. The colony which located at Jan sen, Neb., in 1874 Invested $S5,000 in land at from S3. 50 to $5 an acre. They . still own this land and have acauirod J much, more. A (treat dea' of it would now brln 5100 an acre. But the Mennoriites do not want to sell. Kan sas City Star. PRKSIDKNT HADLEY.
