SOME nice but at the same time confusing* complications of
diplomacy and diplomatic privilege are created by a thought
less country constable of the state of Maryland,, who, with
?mall regard for the sacred person of an Italian .royal duke,
discharged his incendiary pistol at an automobile occupied by the
duke and the Italian ambassador. Now, this assault with force
and arms scarcely rises to the dignity of "a speck of war," 'because
the Italians are a reasonable people, gifted, moreover, with a
sufficing sense of humor, but it will be conceded that the aggressive
peace 'officer was not adequately instructed in the ways of courts
and courtiers and ambassadors.
It is not disputed that the ambassador, accompanied by the
duke of Abruzzi, was exceeding the speed limit, but the plea is
advanced that the ministers of foreign powers accredited to this
country are immune from arrest .tor the commission of a' public
offense, and it is further urged that the plan of perforating a- tire
ga pistol bullet is . not a legitimate method for arresting the
Tess of a rampaging automobile. - •
It may be conceded that, the ready bullet of the constable is
due process of law, under the fourteenth amendment,' with:
wftictiutq deprive the traveler ofhis liberty, and yet there is some
thing to be said in its favor as a means oj argument with a 'person
or persons unknown conducting a blue streak across country, with
incidental peril to the citizen, his manservant arid his maidservant,
-his ox and his ass, all the way down the line to his „ thoughtless
chiskens, the family dog and other livestock prone to get in the way:
Doubtless, had the constable been aware that he was creating
an international complication with his unfortunate pistol he would
have refrained, but being, as we have said, unversed jin courts,
he did not understand that. he was committing assault on an
exalted personage, the representative of the Lord's . anointed.
Indeed, if foreign .ministers insist on their right to break the law
our gallant constabulary will not be safe without a course of
study in the "blue. book" of even the Almanach de Gotha. To'
supplement this liberal education for peace officers the offending
ambassadors might be required, when engaged in breaking the
law. to wear the astonishing diplomatic uniforms of their rank. If,
then, the enterprising constable should see' bearing down upon
him a public offender in gorgeous habit, looking something like a
golden pheasant, he would know that the spectacle means
Don't shoot." \u25a0 • -'
PROFESSOR IRVING FISHER of Yale is the. apostle , of a
new gospel of "economic dietetics, wliose method he summar
izes in the epigram, "Chew and choose." If you follow this
simple plan you will infallibly become a vegetarian or,= at least,
a near vegetarian, and your endurance will be multiplied. As an
example of the efficacy of his method, Professor Fisher instances
the "case of one of his subjects, who N after, a course of "chew and
choose," did "the leg raising thirty times in January and did it fifty
three times in June." Results of this, experiment conducted by
Professor Fisher are thus summarized : }
Nine healthy Yale students who participated in the experiment, by
following the rules of thorough mastication and strict obedience- to taste^
instinct, gradually reached of their own accord and. almost unconsciously "a ,
large reduction in their consumption of meat. .Their appetite _no longer
seemed to require it The ultimate result was 'that; their^ working* power, '
both physical and mental, became", tremendously increased, as proved by "tests
taken at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the experiments
Professor Fisher's conclusions are to the effect that thorough mastication
restored normal appetite instincts, and that these are our best guides to the
proper amount and kinds of food. to be used. '. . , : ; j
All this is most interesting and instructive. Professor Fisher]
disclaims any attachment to the cult of vegetarianism. He is singly!
an economist, computing . the stoking power of beans arid onions'
as compared with beefsteak, and expressed^in terms of de^p knee
bending and leg raising, forms of physical effort reduced to its
lowest denomination.
It may be regretted that Professor Fisher- adheres so closely
to the esoteric terminology, of chemistry to the^neglect of the more
familiar nomenclature 'of the kitchen. -We learn much about pro
teids and carbohydrates, when it might be more satisfying to be
instructed as to the leg raising, power of pie,. for: instance, or the
results of breakfast food, expressed in .deep; knee bending.
Professor, Fisher ingenuously but obscurely! informs rus that
one of his disciples "who could raise on his toes 1^263 times in
January succeeded in doing it 3,350 times in June!" Now, what did
this gentleman "raise"? Did he raise hog or hoiriiny, » arid why diij
he do it on his toes? • . iSfflMiSriffffil
We suspect Professor Fisher "of design to make insidious
attack on .one of our most cherished institutions—the AmeficaHL
