I meditated quite a spell, and at last I decided en a way of break in' him of his heedless ways. Of course I consulted Benjamin first; I always do, an& tbink every wife should show her husband respect in that matter. It s dretful good idea if yon want to hare your own way, for naturally your other half will be pleased to tbink you hare such a high opinion of him and will most always show his appreciation by teliln you to do jest as yon think best Wall, as usual, my other half con sented to my plan, which was as fol lows: Everything which wuz layin' round. Instead of bein' put away should be carried to the attiu In a certain place and he wuz to find them without my help. J or a day or tow, everything wus hunjr up. I wut beginnin' to think I shouldn't have no use for that empty flour barrel I had carried upstairs, but lawfnl heart, before I knew it I was gettin' leg weary, runnln' up and down with things. He didn't ask no ques tions, but would frequently come down from the attie with his over-halls or slippers, sorter smilin' like, and he re marked onct 'twas kinder handy to know Jest where to go. Wall, all run on peaceful till one San day mornin' he wuz dressin' fer church. and his best vest wns missin'. He looked for quite a spell, finally suys he: "Huldah, seen my vest?" I looked up, sorter laughln' and says I: "Yes." "nng it alir ears Benjamin, ''I for got that pebky attic." Wall. I declare if my other halt wnzn't little riled when he come down brushln' off the flour and moothin out some wrinkles.

I kept calm aad told him H he wut tired of goin' upstairs I wouldn t make Jiim any more seen trouble. H imme diately became quiet I thought it wuzn't any see to tell him I woe jest tuckered out myself a trspesin' up there so often. After that I decided to to wait a spell and things run on the old way quite awhile. I nseit to pile 'em np in a ehsir at the table, but dear sua, it wuz an easy matter for him to lift 'em out into another one. Wall, one mornin' he e,nt out' and I calkerlate the settio'-room and kitchen loolcel like an old curiosity shop1, otiTy more so. I stood right still a few mm utes, meditatin'. After due considera tion I placed his rubber boot one each side the settin'-room stove, arrangin' some cat-'o-nine-tailt and ferns in 'em.

It is jest like a slight of hand perform ance, a rulin' our other halves, and the more slight yon do It, the better for both parties. Fussin' and frettin' ain't never goin' to cure any bad habit and it's an excellent idee when lookin' up faults of our partners to take a day, or even a week, and meditate on our own. I have taken notice for considerable of a spoil that women are more apt to find fault then the men folks, and I arriv to this conclusion some time ago, that it ain't because they don't have jest as much to complain of, but simply that they are not a a roole, as food of talk' in'.

"I've always been a close observer and am blessed with a very retentive memory," said one of a party of gen' tlemen dining at a down-town restau rant a few evenings ago. "1 can re peat nearly all of 'Hamlet' and most of Longfellows verses,", he continued. "and my power of remembering odd dates and numbers and statistics is al most remarkable. I'm always discover ing some inconsequential fact and clinging to it as though it were of vital importance." The silver-haired member of the party beamed kindly at the speaker and re' marked: "I presume yon are pretty well ac qnaintrd with yourself?" The man with the good memory con. fessed that he thought he was. "You have been told on what day of the week yon were born. Do you re call it?" " . "Well, I shall have to admit that I've let that point slip my mind.'' . "How many teeth have you at present?" '',-? "Really, that is something I never in vestigated." The other "members of the party smiled significantly. "Of course yon can tell me instantly the number of letters in your own full name?" But the close observer could do nothing of the sort He also con fessed that he was not qnitc sure how tnuny presidents this nation has had or how many states there are in the union to-day.'

I fcrery once in awhile the sovereigns of the great European powers meet for thrparpnseof holdingseonfpren.ee. Im mediately after these s-jcial gatherings report ire sent out. that the peace of Larope is on more tnsureu lor an in definite pn-iod. Credulous people may believe these statement, but as they are usually f dlowed by increased ac tivity in military circles the more thoughtful ire Inclined to think these now historic conferences between the OKBJJAN llHAUOOX. crowned beads hardly ever resnlt in a satisfactory settlement of the subjects under discussion. That a European war of unprece dented magnitude cannot be averted for any length of time U admitted by all observers. Germany, which haa dono more than any other nation to preserve the peace, is on the verge of a social upheaval that can bo avoided only by a war with a foreign power. Discontent has permeated every strat um of tierman society. Even the old con servatives refuse to supportawrie of the extravagant measures advocated by the kaiser. Tho socialists are growing in strength. The ultramontane faction haa been alienated by the government's abandonment of the educational bill. The states of southern Germany, nota bly Bavaria, are. iealou.s of l'russia's asoendenry. A war with Russia or France would distract public attention from home affairs and strengthen tilt position of the monarchical party. Austria-llungury, Germany s close ally, is likewise disturbed by internal dissensions. The duul empire is com posed of nino distinct nationalities, speaking nine languages and twenty two dialect. Each ono of tho princi palities demands legislative concessions which the .government will have to grant In case it cannot direct popular interest to other channels. The poly glot army of the empire is better armed nt present than it has been for years. The officer and soldier are ready to fight and the diplomat have for a long time had a covetous eye on some of the Balkan states. Italy, as everybody knows, is on the verge of bankruptcy. In case of war its principal ally, Germany, would have to furnish tho money to complete its armament and put the army on a fight ing basis. Tho triple alliance, more over, has thousands of antagonist in Humbert's kingdom, and unles some thing is dono very soon to settle Eu ropcan disputes.Italy may bo compelled to sever its connection with the Urci bund. Kussia has for a long time been anxious to fight, but she is not yet in condition to open hostilities. Her armv is not armed with tho latest fire arms and her treasury is comparatively empty. As a recent French writer said: "She lacks tho ncrvus rerum." It is true, Russia can place in the field more FREXCU LlEUTEXAN'I Or CAVALBV. soldiers than any other two countries of Europe, but unless they are equipped with modern rifles snd amply supplied with food they cannot withstand an at tack from ths well-fed, excellently- equipped and 'perfectly-disciplined soldiers of Germany. France, which would be Russia's ally In the event of a general call to arms. is handicapped by internal troubles just at present The anarehistio element which kept itself secluded for a time, has of late displayed a determination to make trouble. A foreign war is not popular with the revolutionists, who preach the universal brotherhood of man for no other purpose than to be able to rob their fellow-citizens under the name of "the commune." Much of the Russophobia now prevailing in France is of an artificial nature. The two countries have nothing in common, except a mutual distrust of Germany, which in the French republio amounts to absolute hatred. . England occupies her usual position "on the fence." Eh ia committed nei ther to the triple alliance nor the Rus sian-French combination. Her Inter ests, however, are on the side of the, Dreibnad, for should Russia once secure a foothold at Constantinople the czar's troops TVould be a constant menace to the integrity of Great Britain s Eastern empire. France is extremely jealous of English ascendency in Egypt and woaslcl gladly welcome an opportunity to rid Alexandria and Cairo of the queen's red coat.

In cue of a protracted war both countries would unquestionably rail out the rcwrve. which would gi.-e France a further idvantape In point of numbers. It Is questionable, however, whether the French army would be abl to cope smwessfully ith its Teutonic snta?inists. Many of ths great battles of the Franeo-lTussian war were decided by the cavalry, and in this branch of the service the repub lic is still far behind its rival across ths Khine. The Germans ire excellent cav alrymen, while the French have neves achieved notable victories with thtir mounted regiments, tm the other hattd, France has a field artillery supe rior in point of numbers and very ef fective on the battlefield. The armies of both countries ire in excellent con dition ind armed with the latest smoke less magazine guns and other modern war paraphernalia. A struggle be tween these two gigantic bodies of well trained men would be fiercer than was the hotly-contested campaign of 17( 71; but as both will hsve allies in the coming catastrophe it may be well to bestow a side glance on the forces of Austria, Italy and Kusias. Organized npon a wsr footing Aus tria-Hungary could place in the field an army of l,27A.0uu men. Of this number S72.0UO are claimed by the regular army. It great strength consists in the cal- ry branch of the service, which ia t-.ot only the best drilled but also the bss mounted force on the continent. Hun gary alone furnishes sixteen full regi ments of hussars, fourteen regiments of dragoons come from Bohemia and tin German provincesand eleven regimtn' of uhlans fromGalicia and Croatia. On of the weak points of the Austrian army is its polyglot complexion. 1 hon sands of the soldiers speak no langiiKRH but their native patois, and arc unabh to understand the commands of thci chief oflicers, which are invarinbli given in tierman. The Hungarians aro natural horsemen, but as their sympa thies ire entirely local they may show an unwillingness to do hard service iu ni'SSlAN COSSACK. a war in which they are not directly In terested. The nominal strength of the Italian army is 7!X),000, but tho actual fighting number is not more tlinn 4TO,oro. What the Itil inns lack in volume they mako up in enthusiasm, and France would find her southern provinces In imminent danger Immediately after a declaration of war. The most famous corps in Italy's army are the Bersaghcri. They are stntioned" in Eombardy and Savoy and trained especially to defeni! tho Al pine passes. They nro furthermore not onlv the bravest but also thi. best drilled and equipped of King I'm- berto's army. Russia, often termed the colossus of Europe, maintains constantly an army of 900,000 men. In times of war this number is Increased to nearly 2.000,000 Tho Russian are excellent fighters. They have always shown a disposition to obey orders implicitly, and will rush into the jaws of death at the word of command. They are.howcver.too impetu ous and vacillating to sustain a protract ed assault Once in disorder, they luivo hitherto proved themselves Incompetent to beat nn orderly retreat Usually they vanquish their enemy by superior forco and bold attack. The most noted branch of the cair's military legions are tho Cossacks, semi-civilized horsemen born and bred In the steppe districts of the empire. They number 2,169 oflicers and 44,020 men. Of the armies hero enumerated, all, with the exception of Russia, are armed with magazine guns. France and Ger many, a already stated, use the smoke less powder, which, according to high military authorities, promises to revolu tionize warfare. Germany has recently introduced war balloons which can be directed even against a light wind, and France has tried experiments with aerial vessels which can be sailed any where and from which charges of dyna mite can be dropped on the opposing forces. That the coming war will be the most disastrous tho world has ever seen cannot be doubted when the strength of the contending forces ii taken into consideration. O. W. Weippibrt.
