THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES PAGE FIVE The Jew Is Not a Natural By OSCAR 5. STRAUS, Twice Minister to Turkey T INSTEAD of the Jew being a natural barteror, ho is the most spiritual man alive. lie has been hounded by the ages, Tobbed and maesacred, but he yields neither his traditions nor HIS IDEALS. Had he been materialistic he would have sold out long ago and BOUGHT PEACE. If he would join the Greek church he would be safe in Ilussia. Rather than do that he will walk into the jaws of hell. The Jew, denied his civil rights, despoiled of his property, scourged and murdered, has only been made tougher and longer lived. His enemies have given him strength and TRAINED HIM MOST AD MIRABLY for the battle of life, no matter in what part of the world fortune may lead him. Years ago Americans did the rough and heavy work of the nation. Then came tho Irish, and the Americans MOVED UP. By and by the Italians swarmed in, and the Irish graduated from the trenches. When Broadway was much shorter than it is now ALL OF THE NAMES on the signs were American. But those old time merchants became opulent, they no longer desired to be small shopkeepers, and bo they went into the banks and manufactories. 2STow the Jews have their stores. In a generation the signs which hang and swing today in Broadway will bo down and others will be up. Perhaps the names will be Italian. No race goes back in this country, but each, being prudent, industrious and ambitious, goes onward TO BETTER CONDITIONS. I have spoken of tho spirituality .of the Jew, a characteristic for which, in my opinion, he is particularly distinguished over some other races, but generally he is like the rest of mankind. I believe, how ever, that he is INTENSELY PATRIOTIC, and I am proud of the part ho has taken in the development of this country. I think the Jews to be equal in patriotism to any class of Americans. You hear that the Jewish mind is exceptionally ACUTE. That is an exaggeration. All of us want the things which are withheld. THE JEW, DEPRIVED OF AN EDUCATION IN VARIOUS PARTS OF EUROPE, COMES HERE AND, FINDING FREE SCHOOLS, SAT ISFIES THE HUNGER FROM WHICH HIS MIND AND HEART HAVE LANGUISHED, HIS INTELLECT IS THE AVERAGE AND NO MORE. TKEATEICAL NOTES. The Dramatic company at the Chi cago opera house continues to add suc cess to success, and has won high praise again this week for the pro duction of "The Little Minister." Thf piece is not by any means new, but ir. the hands of the capable company it has none of the shopworn taints oftf-r found among stock productiun. For the week starting next Sunday after noon, Oct. 14, the company will turn aside from the paths of dainty come dies and society plays in which it has hitheito trod and will enter the tieic of f-trong drama, producing William Gillette and Conan hoyie's virile plav "Sherlock Holmes." The drama is ont that is full of exciting incidents and thrilling moments from start to fini-h It is a fight between the brain of i: detective, the greatest in his line, ano the brain of a criminal who was known as the Napoleon of crime. Into it thert creeps a tender love interest, the neces sary note of humanity. William Bram well will be seen in the role of tin- great detective in which Mr. Gillette was previously so entirely successful. Tne play will be given wiio full scenic equipment. The usual matinees will lie igven on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. I'at. C. Goodwin's great success, '"The Cowboy and the Lady" is underlined to follow "Sherlock Holmes" at the Chicago Opera House. MODES IN BABYLAND NOTHING TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THE UP TO DATE LAYETTE. '"Out of the Larkness," one of the prettiest dramas of Kngllsh and Amcii can life of the present day, is an nounced as the attraction at the Calu met theater, South Chicago, for the week beginning with the matinee, Sun day, October 7. In this play Manager Connors feels that he could not have selected a play more to the likeink of his patrons, who now come from all sections of the Calumet region. The play will be staged in a costly manner and the strongest cast tnat has been seer, at the Calumet this year will be used In the presentation of "Out of the Darkness." There are many very interesting scenes in this pit ce and an abundance of good, whole some comedy. The playing is stir ling and its climaxes aie interesting. The vaudeville will be headed by the world's famous black face comed ian, Raymond Teal, tv'ao has no super iors and few, if any equals, in his particular lino of work. Little Miss Rayfkld will sing the Illustrated songs and the kinodrome will have another of those interesting sets of pictures.

Hill says, that the British grow on an average i thirty bushels of wheat an acre to ours of less than fifteen. JL, But we can get thirty IF WE ADOPT THEIR METH ODS. They fertilize for a root crop every four or five years, and then grow wheat the next year, and that only on the best land. They grow barley and oats on the poorer land. Wheat grew twenty to thirty bushels in Iowa fifty years ago. Now little is grown, because the farmers find STOCK GROWING more profitable. But the Iowa blue grass lands can be turned up today and will produce as big wheat crops as ever. In the Mississippi valley the farmer nowadays works altogether for corn, and his system of rotation is based on the requirements of the CORN AND LIVE STOCK that he wishes to produce. There need be no fear of the capacity of the soil to feed the population which Mr. Hill expects to see here. And I don't question his figures, either. We will have the results too. But we must have dif ferent farming methods. fr TTill'c nhanrvnfinna nn trip snViiprt rtf fnrm t help are correct. But it is hard to do much for the farmer at this point. HELP IS EXPENSIVE AND SCARCE. But better appliances make it pro duce more. A vear ae;o, traveling in the southwest, I saw this well illustrated. In Arkansas and Tennessee I would see a man cultivating behind a single horse that might weigh 800 or 900 pounds. Going on to Oklahoma, that man would be working with two horses. Up in the corn country of Kansas or Iowa he would have three or four SIXTEEX HUNDRED POUND HORSES. IN OLD TIMES A MAN AND TWO HORSES WOULD HANDLE A TEN FOOT HARROW: NOW A MAN AND FOUR BIG HORSES DRAG A TWENTY FOOT HARROW. Every acre of our domain is good for something. We are raising the spineless cactus on the sands of the Mojave desert and feeding cattle on it to determine how the results compare with those in more favored sections. Where Our Universities Fail of Their Purpose By Professor W. W. FOLWELL. University of Minnesota T is highly questionable if our modern schools are doing as much FOR CULTURE as did those of a generation ago. The little American college, with its unadulterated classical course, the "'female seminary,'' the select school, and even the common school of earlier days did LITTLE FOR LEARNING, but much for taste and manners. The American university in its present estate, being merely the American college multiplied by ten or twenty, can make little elaim to superior advantages for culture. But the outlook is hopeful. It can bo seen that the American university is SLOWLY ascending to a higher level. When it shall have relegated to the secondary school the ele mentary studies of its first two years it will be liberated for its proper Comedy rules again at the Chicago opora house this week and the dra matic company has scored another whirlwind success in' Jerome K. Jer ome's merry play, "Miss Ilobbs." In the title role Katherine Grey has add ed yet greater laurels to her crown, and has won the highest praise for a clever and artistic performance. For the week starting Sunday mat mef H't. 7, a special production of J M. i.arrie's famous comedy, "The Lit tie Minister," is announced. The play is too well known to need detailed out line or advance encomium. It is am us wherever the English language i- spoken as an example of the best In the drama of the closing days of ttu somewhat decadent nineteenth century Katherine Grey will be seen as "Lad Babbie," the part in which Maud Adams made her firm hold on famt and 'William Uraniwell will play th title role.

Walter Cralk Bellows has arrived to direct the stage at the Chicago opera house for a season of special weeks "The Little Minister" being the first production under his direction.

A NEW CAP. gether with the daintiest of hand work -but very little trimming is seen, and what is employed is in tiny babyish designs wrought as delicately as frost work on a window pane. This deli cate stitchery is what makes the little garments so costly, and the woman clever with her needle can fashion equally pretty wear for only the cost of the material. For ceremonious wear when baby is on parade the robe illustrated is an ex cellent example of the best baby modes. Of sheer linen, with real Va lenciennes let into the material and dainty touches of embroidery at in tervals to help out the design, nothing could be more charming. The bottom is edged with a frill of the Valen ciennes surmounted by the insertion, and bows of soft ribbon ornament the shoulders. The first baby caps are very pretty, made of fine handkerchief linen daintily embroidered and edged with lace. These are worn over a little silk lining, wad ded or plain, according to the tempera ture, and can be readily fashioned from fine French handkerchiefs if one does not care to buy them outright. The cap illustrated is a very new design and How to Judtje ?VIelon. The first point in judging your melon Is the weight. A heavy fruit is a good fruit, and if heavy, says the Pittsburg Dispatch, only the question of ripeness remains to bo decided. A good ript ness test is the odor. A ripe fruit is fragrant, spicy, tempting to the nos trils. Mnskmelons with deep furrows and' rough surfaces are sound and sweet. The color in the furrows is also worth noting. If very greeny green It is underripe; yellow, and it is apt to be mushy. A very smooth sur face often means that tho melon is overripe. It may be sweet, but It will be too soft and dry for perfection. How to Manage an Oil Store. To take care of an oil stove, thor oughly clean and refill every time after using. If you allow oil and dirt to ac cumulate on it. It Is sure to smell un pleasant when lighted. Don't cut the wick, but rub off the charred parts with a rag or a piece of paper. Always turn the wi-ck down before extinguish ing it and leave turned down till you S are going to light It again. Remember that the top of the part up and down which the wick runs needs to be kept thoroughly clean. Give It a rub insida and outside every time you clean ths stove, and If a crust forms round th top scrape It occasionally.

The same idea is shown in caps built of white silk of handsome quality. About the face there is a full lingerie ruche, and the strings of soft satin ribbon are adjusted by fastenings under tiny rosettes, so that they can be easily re moved for renewal or laundering pur poses. The little underclothes are built upon the most hygienic liires. There must be no undue pressure anywhere, no tight bands, and everything must hang from the shoulders or be attached to a tiny ,,body," which is supported by broad straps.
