Tolstoy and Turgenev, famous Rus sian novelists, were contemporaries and friends, but on one occasion they had a serious falling out. As gathered from a recent biography, this Is the story of their quarrel: The two fa mouse novelists met at a friend’s house. Turgenev spoke enthusiastically of his young daughter’s new English gov erness. mentioning that she required the child to mend old. rugged clothes to give to the poor. “Do you consider that good?” demanded Tolstoy. “I cer tainly do.” replied Turgenev ; ‘it makes the charity workers reullze everyduy needs.” "And 1 think that a well dressed girl with dlihy. malodorous rags In her hands Is acting an Insincere farce,” commented Tolstoy. ”1 ask you not to say thaj," exclaimed Tur genev. hotly. “Why should I uot say what I am convinced Is true?” retorted Tolstoy. “If you say that again 1 will fan your ears!” Turgenev cried, white with rage, and rushed from the room. A duel was narrowly averted. After ward these famous uieu became ret onciled, ami on his deathbed Turgeuev wrote an affecting note to Tolstoy, ad dressing him as “the great writer of our Russian land.”—Outlook.

There have been several horse meat markets legalized in this country and there will be more. After all that is said for and against eating horse meat we are obliged to admit that the objection is purely aesthetic. The horse lives upon the cleanest cereals and succulent grasses and will die before he will drink stagnant | water. The horse is the healthiest of all food producing animals, bar ring possibly the sheep. The horsel is practically immune to tuberculosis, while 9 percent of hogs and 4 percent of cattle under federal inspection are condemned as unfit for food. With u mortality from tuberculosis thut is decimating the human family, and in this country where less than half of the meat consumed is subject to any sort of inspection, we are facing a problem that must eventually be met by drastic measures. Horse meat is easily digestible, is wholesome and safe. In our large cities the high price of beef, pork, and mutton has made their consumption almost prohibitive for the poor, while pneumonia, tu berculosis, and other diseases stalk in the wake of the insufficiently nourished. We eat the cannibal whale and shark, oysters and turtle with nothing wasted, the bsains, livers, lymph glands and intestines of cattle, sheep and hogs. Consistency demands that we do not object to the eating of horse meat by those who want it, in the interest of food conservation and winning the war. —Geo. H. Glov er, Colorado Agricultural College, Fort Collins, Colorado. “Liberty's Torch” “Liberty’s Torch” is the name of the pretty patriotic play to be presented by the children at Chautauqua this season. The supervisor who comes here to look after that important part of the work has had special training and is experienced in this line of act ivity. The children will see that every body knows all about “Liberty 4 ! Torch” before Chautauqua is over. Real Singing in “The Climax.” “Why doesn’t he play the violin?” was a common remark during the pro duction of “The Melting Pot” when the young musician put the instrument to his shoulder but never played a note. Well, the play wasn’t written that way. But, “The Climax” is different. It requires a very fine pianist and a very wonderful singer to properly take the parts. The Homer Chautauquas were particularly fortunate in securing Miss Charlotte Leslay to take the part of Adelina in “The Climax.” She played the title role in “Pocahontas.” She then was cast for her first prima donna role in “Li’l Mose,” a part that won her recognition from the firm of Klaw ami Erlanger and she was en gaged by them to appear in the all star cast of Ben Hur. She has sung in London and appeared in David Bel asco’s “The Auctioneer.” She is em inently fitted for the difficult role of Adelina in "The Climax.” German Treachery. “When the soldiers reach a trench, the Germans are ready to throw up their hands and call ‘Kamerad’ while they are sending men around to at tack you from behind.
