FRED MAHNKEN 3*kmeer horseshoor and general blacksmith. Opposite Farmer's Corral. Baltic Ports Crowded With Agents of Many Nations. Heroes. Too, Smugglers, Exchange Gamblers and Fugitives Are There —Many Women in Throngs of Secret Workers. Stockholm.—Just now the Baltic is the sea of adventure. Normally it is a dull, insipid sea. After war be gan the Haltlc woke up a little, but its liveliness was limited by Grand Admiral Tirpitz's command of the sea. Now about ten British submarines, backed by some Russian submarines, have awakened the ordinarily quiet waters. All Baltic ports are nests of espionage, adventure, patriotic hero ism and roguery, chiefly the last named. Stockholm ignores the war, but it is full of Russian and German jobbers who gamble in exchange. Copenhagen is the chief center of German espion age. The saloons and fourth-rate ho tels are thronged with German agents. Liban, since Von llindenburg cap tured it last summer, is the headquar ters of a German motorboat corps which does scouting in Riga gulf. Hernosand. Oxelosuud and other small Swedish eastern ports are the homes of scores of marooned German merchant captains whoso ships have been torpedoed or bottled up. The liveliest places are Haparanda and Tornea. frontier townlets on the Tornea Elf river, which divides Sweden from Russian Finland. Those townlets. 30 miles from th* Arctic circle, are crowded with spies, con traband smugglers and fugitive pris oners. The Russian gendarme Colonel Abassoff discovered two German spies in Tornea recently. With six gen darmes he pursued the suspects to Karungi, further up the river, and be sieged them in a bouse. After a two hour battle the two Germans and four Russians lay dead. In coming here from Copenhagen, via Malmo, one has to cross the sound, the entrance gate of the British submarines. The sound is an inter national waterway, but it is also ter ritorial. being less than three miles across at the narrowest point. The Swedes own the east side and the Danes the west. The other entrances, the Great and Little Belt, which are entirely owned by Denmark, were mined against submarines in October, 1914. Danes and Swedes could not agree about mining the sound. The Swedes regret this, for the submarines have disturbed the halcyon calm of the Bal tic and injured Sweden's trade with Germany. After England had got at least four submarines through, Germany mined the sound. Mines were planted in a big triangular patch in the south and German patrol boats were set to watch it. At least two English submarines have got between or under the mines and more may come any day. From the Malmo steamer could be seen Germany's tremendous meas ures against submarines. South of the mine field, on the horizon, is a forest of masts and funnels belong ing to the big flotilla of cruisers, gun boats, armed trawlers and motor pa trol boats. Their business is to watch for and destroy submarines that get past the mines. Ahead of the flotilla flew a hydroplane. The Malmo steam er captain said that when he had sailed a boat south a few days before he had counted about fifty German craft of different kinds ail on the look out. From the sound down to the broad water between Sweden and Rügen island every mile of sea has a small German warship on the watch. At Copenhagen the police brought aboard for transit to Russia an alleged spy. In the Baltic ports are swarms of purely military and naval spies who serve belligerent governments, many "trade spies," and large numbers of spies of the neutral Baltic powers whose work is to spy on spies. The trade spies, all British, haunt commercial ports. Their function is to collect facts about Scandinavian firms' trade with Germany, which firms trade, what they sell and to whom. London takes care that over sea goods consigned to Scandinavian firms which trade with Germany do - not reach the firms. The trade spies pose as language teachers or drum mers. Many have been expelled. Mile. Assanovitch, a handsome, black-eyed Russian girl, who, posing as governess, spied on a great scale, was expelled recently. The spies who spy on spies are mostly Swedish. They watch all foreigners, particularly those who speak English. Two ^days after an Englishman reached Stockholm he visited a dentist. Half an hour later an agent telephoned to the dentist to ask who his patient was. Copenhagen is the center of the false passport business. ! to the Cosmopolite hotel and say: 'There can be had passports of any nationality." The false passport busi ness was staged in order to save Rus sians from capture by German cruis ers.. of Danes point! Indians Full Citizens. Pierre, S.

Famous "Prisoner of the Mahdi Visits Medina. Man Held in Chains for Twelve Year» by the Mahdi and Frq*d by Kitch ener Has Had Most Roman tic Career. Constantinople.—Bronzed like a na tive son of the desert and in dress, speech and manners an Arab, the only white man who ever openly visited Medina, the holy city of the Moham medans. recently returned here. The pilgrim was Dr. Karl Neufeld, the fa mous "prisoner of the Mahdi." who was liberated by Lord Kitchener in the Sudan many years ago. Pew men have had a more romantic and exciting career than this celebrat ed traveler. As a physician, teacher, merchant and contractor he went to the Sudan in 1886. When the uprising of the natives began he was taken prisoner by the Mahdf and kept in chains for twelve years. Freed by Kitchener, he returned to Germany, but after a lecturing tour he made his way back to the Sudan. Shortly after the outbreak of the present war he had to leave his adopted country again, as he was expelled by the Brit ish authorities. After his return to Germany be was sent to Constantinople, where he placed himself at the disposal of the Turkish government. He was used as an emissary to the Arabian tribes, and for this work probably no man is better qualified. As he speaks the dialects of all the Bedcjain tribes, knows their customs ana has em braced the Mohammedan faith, he wins confidence wherever he appears in the world of Islam. After organizing the Arabian tribes on the Peninsula of Sinai for an in vasion of Egypt this strange man went to Damascus and decided to visit Medina. Accompanied by four Arabs he left Damascus in June. After his train passed Maan and El Ulla the Turkish officers with whom he traveled became distrustful and they even kept aloof from him when they saw him say his prayers like every pious Mohamme dan. When he reached Medina, the Ramadan, the great Mohammedan fes tival. had Just begun. He placed him self under the protection of .a promi nent native who has charge of the pil grims from the Sudan and ids host conducted him to the Harem-es-Sherl fa. the temple where Mohammed is buried with his favorite daughter Fa tima and his son-in-law. When he stood before the crypt of the prophet the German traveler was surrounded by an angry mob. His po sition became quite critical until two Arabians made their way through the crowd and declared: "We know him; he is the effendi of Omdurman and Assuan, a good man and true Mohammedan." Even this did not entirely satisfy the mob and Doctor Neufeld was only permitted to stay in the temple after he affirmed his faith with a solemn oath. For two or three weeks he was continually watched by natives who were not convinced by his religious professions and by Egyptian spies in the service of England. The latter tried in every way to in flame the natives against him by call ing him an intieUi and "Christian dog," At a meeting of the scribes and sheiks he was asked where he came from and there was great excitement when he calmly said: "From Germany." The priests and chiefs were satis fied, however, when he related how he was converted to Mohammedanism by a pious sheik in the Sudan, Doctor Neufeld remained in Medina nearly two months in continual inter course with the sheiks, ulemas and prominent pilgrims from Tripolitanta, Tunis, Morocco, Persia, Afghanistan and India. He obtained much valuable information. From the pilgrims he learned that the Jehad (holy war) movement is fast becoming general in ull Mohammedan countries. He found that the Arabs are especially bitter against the British, because the English government has closed the Red sea and stopped the great an nual pilgrimages from Egypt and India to Mecca and Medina. Still more bitter were the Mohammedans over the fact that the English have proclaimed the new ruler of Egypt appointed them "sultan oi the two holy places." because all of the faithful Insist that this title only belongs to the caliph Constantinople. "By their attempt to establish Egyptian caliphate the British have made one of their greatest mistakes." Doctor Neufeld said on his return Constantinople. "The Arabs will never forgive them this interference with their religious affairs, and the block ade of the Red sea. "The population of the whole west ern part of Yemen is in uprising against the British. In this part Arabia only the sheik Ebesi is in way of the English and he possesses little power and influence. - ' All Arabs are fervent admirers Germany, he said, and every one 1 them knows the name of Field Mar shal von Hindenburg. When the graph brought the news of the fall Warsaw to Medina there was a great celebration. The whole population sembled before the bouse of Doctor Neufeld to express its joy. An priest, who mildly protested and pressed doubts in regard to the right eousness of the sultan's alliance the German infidels, was howled down by the mob. of VICTIM OF AUTO DISEASE Petromortis, or Automobile Gas Pois oning, Kills a Chicago Lawyer. Chicago. Eugene M. Humphrey, a lawyer, is dead at his home here of what physicians term petromortis. or automobile gas poisoning. According to physicians, it is the first fatal case in Chicago from that cause. An idea of the violence with which petromortis attacks its victims was given by I)r. John D. Ellis, head of the department of occupational diseases of Rush Medical college. "The thing is new to science in soma aspects." said Doctor Ellis. "Per sons who are subject to vertigo may be attacked when In a close, small garage. The danger Ifes in a failure of certain elements in the gasoline to oxidize. In any event, there is a quick suffusion of a violent gas that renders the victim faint. Thus if the exhaust of an automobile continues, the result is almost instant death. "The post-mortem showings are those of brain and lung congestion." Humphrey went to his garage last night to get his automobile, in which he intended to deliver a number of Christmas gifts to poor families. An hour later his body was found on the floor of the garage, the engine of the automobile was running, and the smalt room was filled with gas fumes.
