If he lost a fight it did not matter, it. was only fate. If Bulgaria won her independence fate. If Italy took Tripoli fate. He fought to the finish but did not worry about his losses and right now when his country is apparently going to to the government his Allah and he looks upon them as heretical even when urged by some of his own leaders. His fath er was a Turk, his grandfather and so on. His mother was probably not a Turk but that makes no dif ference in his character, only in the color of his eyes and hair. From his boyhood he has understood that he is the Real Thing, that Christians and Jews are dogs, and that no mat er what happens his own title is clear to the Mansions in the Moham median skies. r' - ' :: '.rf' Every Turk wants an official po sition and he wants it to make mon ey for himself. He will accept a Janitorshlp in a public building rath er than engage in business. As soon as he secures a position be begins to graft and if tie did not do so he would be looked upon with suspic ion. Let a foreigner try to get some business done with the Turkish gov ernment and he must begin to bribe with the porter at the outer gate and keep it up at every door he en ters clear to the top of the depart ment. The point of view Is exactly opposite from ours, for the Turk makes no secret of his graft and no pretense of refusing it. He usually pays some superior for his Job with the understanding that he will re imburse himself with profit. It was always the Turkish custom to sell appointments, and often a Greek or Jew would bid highest and get It And it is the general testimony that a Greek or a Hebrew could out-Turk the Turks when it came to collect ing taxes and not turning them in It has been my general experience that picturesque places and people are accompanied by unpleasant smells.

I,:?" J"1 wo iwuaiufi ai mm wun as muca can bd without even thinking such a thing of himself. Everywhere in Constantinople a , visitor is treated pleasantlyV'or he is if he looks like he had any money. In this respect the Turks are a' good deal like New Yorkers. One soon smash and the high cost of living has reduced the ordinary Turk to small victuals and only one wife, he calmly puts all the responsibility on his God and sits and meditates as he did when everything was coming his way. Like the Christian he be lieves that "God moves in a mys terious way His wonders to per form," but unlike the Christian he accepts what happens as eing the will of God and therefore to be ac cepted by His people. The Turk washes his face and hands five times a day and prays after every ablation. He may not wash the rest of him once a year and he often looks as it he did not. He cares absolutely nothing for such things as sewers, pure water and germ theoriea. They are bucking It is said to relate but Constanti nople looks better and more pictur esque from the Bosphorous than it does from its own streets. Many ot the buildings which loomed up in the distance like manions of marble turn out to be rather plain looking houses of cement with big patches fallen off. There are frame struc tures in Constantinople and I know of no other European city which has them. The streets are narrow, very few being large enough for car riages to pass, and many are merely long flights of stone steps climbing up the hill. The words street and sewer are almost synonymous. While all this oriental difference from western cities is interesting, to get close is often hard on the olfactory nerve. .. .. , wnen ne cbanged his clothes. The glimpses I have had of the alleged Circassian beauties make me believe that they Just varnish over with paint and pov,der without the use of soap and water. All the stories about the east tell much of the habit of "going to take the bath." My information here is that the women go to the bath not to bathe but to be perfumed, to smoke cigarettes and tell gossip and questionable stories. In America the women get the news from the papers and at the millinery shops, but here they must rely upon the baths. I do not know if the bath house news is any more reliable than that in the American papers but it certainly must be Just as Interesting. On one point I have been greatly disappointed. Every traveller who visited Constantinople has written or told of the dogs which did the scavenger work, had regular or ganizations with details of dogs for each street, and all that sort of thing. The dog story Is over. So are the dogs. After the Young Turks came Into power five years ago they instituted several reforms and one was the abolition of the dog street cleaning department. It made a lot of trouble for the government as many of the old Turks considered tne dogs almost sacred. But some young Turk thought up a plan which worxea. uangs oi men went over the city, picked np the dogs with long wooden tongs and put them into carta. Yon can imagine how a cart load of dogs . thus selected would fight each other. The carts were taken on a boat to an island and those dogs which were still alive were turned loose with nothing to eat They killed each other and finally the last one starred. Notice the fine philosophy ot the Turk. The government did not kill the dogs. The dogs killed them selves. This suited the Turkish temperament whether as a religious theory or a bit of humor I don't know. At any rate the dogs are all gone and the government still lives. Incidentally this gives yon a side light on the Turkish character and shows how calmly brutal the Turk curiosity as he is at them. Of course if he is a woman he should get off the sidewalk and let the gentlemen go by. That is oriental custom. But the Turk is polite and pleasant enough in his own yard although you realize that he really considers you a "dog" and I have narrated the humorous manner in which he disposed of the dogs. HE WAS VERY BUSY, SO SHE GOT THE . LICENSE A woman walked into Judge Tap pen's office at the court house. "I want a marriage license." "All right," the Judge said. "But this Is unusual. The men usually come and get them." "Well," the woman replied, "this time the man had to stay home and cook. But we wanted to get mar ried and so I came down to get the license." They live at Herington and they are Minnie K. Mendell and Lewis A. Sparks. Mr. Sparks is a cook in a hotel there and was unable to leave his work. , Judge Tappen married Orla A. Mannen and Lillian Wolford, both of Sallna and issued a license to Ed. Anderson and Rexil Belle Wldler, both of Enterprise. . C. L. BROWN READ A PAPER, "CEMENT POLES" C. L. Brown of the United Tele phone company read an able paper before the utilities convention at Hutchinson. The subject was "Ce ment Poles for Telephone Wires." Abilene is one of the few towns of the state to use cement poles for. telephone wires. As fast as poles are to be replaced here, cement poles are being set it They are a credit to the company's service.
