racial Correspondence of THE
ULDlIt I has been oft stated by the
it brains of the Nineteenth Century
it the government of the Osmanlis is
JiopelesEly lost case nor are these
ertions but recent Years ago it
s most positively stated that the final
sh was then nigh at hand and still
Turk is a Turk this very day
Tat we be not led into a like mistake
saying the Turks must go let us
ike the timely assertion that his pres
It form of
t GOVERNMENT IS GOING
Orientals are to be the continued
lers of the Levant we cant think of
i nore dignified and commanding race
the position that the Turks with all
Fnr little failings and it is rather to
assumed that Orientals will ba the
lers at least until there is some rad
ii alteration in the present political
nation of Europe Te strong posi
m here in the east is such that it is
r better in the hands of a weak
wer than with a strong one thereby
e equilibrium of the Old World is
ore fully attained on which has rested
e peace and prosperity which has now
an going onfor years But the asser
m that the present tottering govern
ent of the Osmanli must go is a fact
B Jar and well founded That the gov
jmnment is even now giving way to
1 tter laws and customs are facts not
be denied by any observer Of course
ch reforms may be as yet but cold
id tardy but tney are nevertheless
tual and certain
Staunch and energetic workers for
form are a number of Turks who
ve ttaveled in Europe and been con
nced that Constantinople is not the
eatest city of the world and that
usselmen can themselves learn of
tours unbelievers Among this
amber are not a few of the Sultans
inistry and probably the most noted
1 these is the

n fine home style There is something
say about Turk in this position that
JanJt be described i one must seethe
ctual performance to appreciate the
omfort it affords them whether in
heir own simple cafe or in fine French
jarlors All conversation is carried on
n a whisper in this grand mansion all
1 Carkish domiciles are sacred so this
nust begreatly so belonging as it does
0 the Sadrazam
f But here is tae servant announcing
J n a whisper that His Highness will see
s this very minute What a flutter it
Buses in ones breast as we follow
remblingly behind the servant We
ire soon brought squarely in front of
a blanketlike hanging answering for a
door and this the servant pulls lightly
to one side exposing us to the scrutin
izing gaza of the Grand Vizier We
> bow as becomingly rs we know how
and he rises with ease and motions us
to a vacant seat opposite him Here
I I we are the private guests of the Sadra
zam and what a funny little driedup
J specimen of Turk he really is Why
J he is nothing like the common dump
ish Turk He speaks English quite
fluently and half adozen or more other
II languages he is immensely popular
with the representatives of the leading
r nations because of his knowing their
Y I lawn national tongue Being a fine
3 French scholar he knows the position
of his government well and assiduously
> labors for its reforms During our talk
with His Highness he boasting said his
government had
ALL KINDS OK RELIGIONS
CIAll kinds of Chrstians and all kinds
of here he paused a little but
finally came out with Musselmen
Our errandlm a hardly finished when I

were ushered in by the servant without
ceremony When tile blanket door was
pulled aside this time there was a
miniature race between the two pachti
who trotted right up to the aide of the
Sadrazam and salaamed in royal Turk
ish style The salaaming ended there
was a desire on the part of the two
pachas to kisi the gown of the Sadra
zm after true Mohammedan honor
His Highness being dressed a la Frank
was thus minus of the essential gown
this however was made up by the
pachas trying to catch his coat tail
The Sadrazam vigorously resented this
action for some cause but the dachas
were the more persistent on their side
so for a few minutes these royal per
sonages had a lively skirmish over the
COAT TAIL OF HIS HIGHNESS
the Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Em
pire It is only justice to the pachas
to mention that they triumphantly
succeeded in their aim But how about
the less distinguished foreign visitors
When quiet was restored the pachas
took a seat to condescendingly wait
until His Highness was disengaged
There was a painful look on the counte
nance of the Sadrasaru 6S hejooked at
us and then unavoidably took a quick
glance at the new comers We at once
saw the position that it would hardly
be equity to keep the royal faithfuls
waiting while he conversed with gafours
so we made our exit as graceful as we
could and found the first the second
the third and the fourth servants all
ready and waiting for theback heesh
This last is the evil of a visit to the
Sadrazam
But to return as the novelist says to
our first subject There is probably
not anything that acts so forcible in the
reform of a government as the educa
tion obtained in schools Knowing that
in this lies the true essence of reform in
Turkey as it has been in other coun
tries the writer has busied himself in
his spare time visiting the most
NOTED INSTITUTIONS OF LEARNING
Osmanlis schools are virtually closed
to a stranger but Armenian Greek and
foreign schools have been visited In
the most of foreign or mission schools
a bitter prejudice was engendered by
knowing I was from Utah Probably
the highest and best school here is the
Robert College it is certainly the finest
we have had the pleasure to visit It
was founded in 1863 by the munificence
of Christopher K Robert of New
York and under the direction of Rev
Cyrus Hamlin DD It was incorpor
ated by the Legislature of the State of
New York and is governed by a board
of trustees residing there An Irade
was granted by the Sultan here for its
establishment The object of the col
lege as it sets forth is to give to its
students without distinction of race or
religion a thorough educationequal in
all respect to that obtained at a first
class American college and based upon
the same principles
During our visit to the schools we
found students of nearly all nations
here in the east and many Europeans
tha largest per cent come from Bul
garia which country acknowledges the
school as its
cR WHIKG EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION
The school is doing an immense work
of reform in the Orient and in conver
sation with the vicepresident of the 1
college Professor Long he whispered I
that Right in this building is the
fountain bead of all that has been
accomplished in Bulgaria Look
he said our list of graduates contains
the names of nearly all the most dis
tinguished men of that government
Its disemination of American ideas is
undoubtedly a vast force for the proper
dressing of these lands Proud Amer
ica her principles will ultimately rule
the world But to finish our visit at
the school To one who has had a few
months alone among the simple
minded natives as is the case with the
writer a visit to the Robert College is
like dropping in on a small America
The language of the school is English
and most of the professors and instruc
tors are right down Yankees Some
had acquaintances in Salt Lake and
questioned about Utahs interests in
one homelike style After the school
hours a walk was enjoyed over the
historical grounds near the building
escorted by Professor Henderson The
location of the school is a lovely quar
ts on the Bosphorous surrounded with
points of high historical interest all
combine to give it a physical position
equalled by few if any other colleges
at the world
From what one may see here in an
educational sense it may be inferred
that these various local and foreign
institutions will lend an influence that
will shake the very foundations of
tyranny in a few years Give a few
more American institutions free scope
and it will be sure to be such It will
be American you know

BUENOS AYRES i1
A land Where Horses are Given
Away
Nobody has though of this southern
country Buenos Ayres as one from
which there may spring a rival in wheat
growing effort that may affect the
market of the United States As a
matter of fact the thing is accom
plished and from the district where I
write wheat in grain and in flour ia
already starting its remunerative
journey from the pampas and has
brought back its valuo from Brazil
Chile and the Latin states of Europe
Encouraged by these results the area
of planting is increasing The acreage
of the increase as a faot is pitiful and
the amount of land under cultivation is
to the Yen keemind contemptible but
the possibilities of wheat are sweater
than those Minnesota knew in
1860 or Dakota and her isis
ler i territories t < njoy r today jc A
climate that knee no froat aesoil
virgin to the plow but + ennchedaby
centuries of grasses blown into the
land and fertilized by innumerable
cattle whose movement over its area
has known generations of death as
well as the contribution of their life
has made a land fit for the gardners
spade Its generic character is of course
alluvial but time beyond memory this
land east of the Andes has known no
course exceptthatpf man whose misuse
of its offerings has brought forth a race
Whose character until within ten years
has been that of nonproducers hopeful
from the efforts of every enterprise ex
cept their own speculative upon any
foreign energy and ready and anxious
to enjoy the fruits of every industry so
loug as they uould profit by either or
hold the harvest reaped where they had
not planted and garnered whence they
had not sown
Let me give some practical illustra
tions of values here 1 went to visit an
estancia ranch of twelve leagues of
land a league is nearly 6 000 acres I
was met at the railway station on a cold
winters morning July by a fourin
hand The driver was a neon tho
vehicle on Under which the two for
ward wheels turned easily and its body
behind the seats was covered with the
homedressed hides of horses Its seats
were cushioned with padded horsehides
the harnesses were raw horsehide the
whip was braided horsehide and the
pace was a run no trotting horse is
known Over the pampas thirtytwo
miles m 100 minutes the only skill of
the coachmen called upon was to avoid
the cattle wallows It was a pace for
experience Arriving at the estancia
tho horses were brought up standing
the harness dragged off and the animals
weresent adrift on the pampas I
asked the superintendent of the farm
what became of those horses I dont
know he replied What are they
worthAbout three nationals each
A national is a dollar in the present
depreciated condition of currency
about57 cents That afternoon with
a new four the superintendent and I
were driving and came up with some
peons skinning a dead but still steaming
horse An inquiry revealed that it was
one ot the four that galloped thirtytwo
miles in the morning I knew the
driving was too hard I said the
horse was killed Why bless your
innocent heart said the superinten
dent we shoot fifty or sixty horses
or mares a week To morrow I will show
you around up II And he did and
they killed seven tyfour horses took
their hides boiled down their fat strip
ped the hair from their manes and
tails and counted it profit and left the
carcasses on the pampas for tho waiting
scavenger of South America the con
dor What is it that Carlyle says about
the stored up energy which constitutes
a nations wealth There was a lot of
energy released that day
It must seem increditable to our
Yankee and prairie farmers that horns
could be so used but it is a calm fact
that more than X00 000 were slaughtered
in the Argentine Republic last year as
shown by the raw hides sold in market
Horses grow wild and worse horees it
is impossible to conceive A horse is
cheaper than a coatI mean a horse
broken to ride or drive Beggars and in
this country there are many ride from
house to house to solicit alms and re =
fuse a horso from an almoner from
whom they export a richer gift for a
horse is the cheapest thing he can give
Judged by our ideas of economy this
all seems mad extravagance They ex
cuse it in ways not satisfactory to me
for it is extravagance say what they
will No distance of market can com
pensate for the waste of pure strength
easily realized upon in a land where a
premium of 30 per capita is paid for
every immigrant howsoever poor who
comes to settle and work Bad as the
horses are one of them is worth any
four immigrants I saw of this class out
of 10000 landing in Buenos Ayres in

THEM DUDES IS CUTE
How They Manage to Keep up Ap
pearances on a Small Capital
He was what might be safely and
truthfully called a howling swell A
microscopic Derby surmounted his
smoothly parted head of hair a lonp
palepaleontological graychecked ulster
swung gracefully from his sloping
shoulders his looselycut trousers fell
without a wnackle over his brilliantly
varnished shoes and he swung a
Brebdignaggian cane with an airy ease
that would lead the ordinary observer
to suppose he had the key to the gate
in the high picket fence that surrounds
the Four Hundred He stopped along
side the leader of the usual string of
cabs on the Madison Square aida of
of Fifth Avenue
I say cabbie will you take me to the
seventh house around the corner for a
dime yon know
The cabman growled a surly assent
and the young man was whirled aronnd
the corner in grand style and ran up
the stoop of an imposing brownstone
mansion after slamming the cabdoor
with noise enough to rouse the entire
blockDo you often do that sort of thing
asked a quiet citizen as the cabman
anchored himself 011 the avenue again
Do we0 was the reply Well I
I often picks up a dollar of an evenin
helpin them counterjumpin dudes to
I keep up appearances The idea antanew
