This city compels American admira tion by its phenomenal power to "come back." .Crushed by wars, In quisitions. economic bans and persecu tions of its people, Antwerp always has risen again. Figures tell the story. Population In 1568, 125,000; twenty years later, only 55.000. From 1800 to 1850 the population almost doubled. To Its 290,000 in 1904, a hundred thousand more were added before the Germans came In October, 1914. The 12.160 veiwels that passed in and out of Its fine harbor in 1905 marked an in crease of more than 50 per cent since 1888. Not that Antwerp is a perennial boom town. It is at least 15 centur ies old. And during that time its story Is one of struggle against re peated tragedies. When the Germans invaded the city its noble cathedral tower looked down on Just one more, though infinitely more cruel, blow of the sort it had been receiving since the middle ages. Napoleon (some say Charles V) compared this tower Mechlin lace. Its delicate chiseling forms a network of stone embroidery against the sky that can be seen from the surrounding flat country, and from the winding Scheldt, long before any other building in Antwerp is visible. By 1600, five hundred ships often came and went from Antwerp's bar bor in a day and two thousand wagon loads of merchandise usually entered Its gates. A thousand foreign busi ness houses were represented there. Its own merchant princes dwelt in al most regal splendor. Amid this material wealth noble works of art were created. In the city's museum were specimens of its glorious school—paintings by Van ' Dyck, the Teniers. Memling, Massys Jordaens, Jan van Eyck and Rubens, though the last named was better represented in the cathedral by his masterpiece, "The Descent From the Cross," and two other noted works. In the Museo Plantin were relics of that Elbert Hubbard of the middle ages. Christophe Plantin. whose press product was no less distinctive when he.-etic pamphlets were struck off than when devout religious works were printed and embossed. During the religious disturbances of the mid-sixteenth century the cathe dral. then considered second only to St. Peter's at Rome, was pillaged by the Iconoclasts. Its images and pic tures. its magnificent vases, its »56 al tars and Its great organ, considered the finest of its time, were burned or broken by the torch-bearing vandals. Whitewashed walls reminded twen tieth-century tourists of these depre dations. Other churches were ravaged at that time. But what Antwerp suffer ed then was mild compared to the horrors of "the Spanish Fury" in 1576. when that latter day Nero, the duke of Alva, and his Council of Blood, began a reign of terror which sav agery scarcely could surpass. Tying wealthy citizens to horses' tails, he would drag them miles to "trial." Antwerp suffered grievously from this debauch of hangings, quarterings. beheadings and butcheries. In three days S.tXtO of her men. women and children were slain, burned or drown 'd : hundreds of the fine marble homes destroyed, and the clivaient of mil lions of dollars worth of property wrecked. It was seven years later that the doughty citizens of Antwerp made short shrift of the duke of Anjou's plotting against Flemish liberty. When the duke and his men overcame the Flemish guard of a drawbridge, and 3.000 of the duke's troops rushed in to take the city, workmen fought furi ously with their oven shovels, and cit izens grabbed arquebuses and chewed coins into shape to load them. on the to eral der in at in FINLAND: WHERE WOMEN WON VOTE BY HELPING SETTLE A STRIKE Victory for woman suffrage In the United States adds interest to the ex periences of Finland, where women won the franchise by their part in qui eting labor troubles similar to those which now assail the United States. Incidentally, Finland was one of the first portions of the old Russian em pire to set up a constitutional govern ment. The advent and progress of suffrage In Finland Is described In a communi cation to the National Geographic so ciety hy Baroness Aletta Korff as fol lows : "From an educational point of view the women of Finlaud have been very fortunate, as there are many excellent schools for girls and a number of co educational schools throughout the rauutry which prepare students for the university examinations. Girls were admitted to the university In 1878, and, until the war Intervened. ' of to or at he the the in cit they not only attended lectures but rook part In all branches of university life; they participated In all the cele brations and festivities, and were members of the various clubs and stu dent organizations, In which they were on a footing of perfect equality with the men, and frequently were elected to various official positions. After they were graduated from one of the sev eral high schools or from the univer sity, there were many branches of work open to them. "Having thus stK-h an excellent foun dation to build upon. It is small won der that the woman's movement soon found many active supporters. In 1863 the diet had accorded the mu nicipal vote to women taxpayers living in the country, and in 1872 to women way tein est and be tion a a living in the towns, all of whom were also given the right to be elected mem bers of certain local self-governing bodies. In 1900 the women social dem ocrats Included the suffrage In their program, hut the special activity for the suffrage began only in the year 1904. although in 1897 a petition had been officially presented to the diet at the request of the 'Finnish Wom an's association.' "The reason why so little was done in direct furtherance of the cause.of woman suffrage between the y 1897 and 1904 Is that Just at that Finland was passing through a set political crisis. "After the outbreak of the Oct^ revolution in Russia 0905), a sy thetic strike was declared in Fini and several of the members of the] tral committee elected by a meeting to manage the details strike were women. "The first action taken by the 1 mlttee was to close all the shops, saloons and barrooms, at organize a volunteer police for keep order. After the second daj markets were reopened and the ers were not allowed to cut off the] ter supply. In short, the strike managed In a most orderly and tematic way, and no outrages of < sort were committed." FUTURE OF SYRIA AFFEI CIVILIZED WORLD More and more frequently the spot a ace ine In Feis al reigned a few days. The French set up a temporary government, and now Feisal seeks restoration. Syria's future concerns the entire world, for It is coming into its own as a result of new railways which make it once more a link land in history's chain. Explaining the significance of recent events, a communication by Maynard Owen Williams says: "Syria closes the east end of the Mediterranean and is bounded on the torch by the Taurus mountains. The light swings to Syria. The Syrians | declared their country Independent, and chose Prince Feisal as king. Feis : ; J A Woman of Syria. | j i ' ^ the ex the em so fol co the for In Syrian and Arabian deserts limit fur ther settlement to the east and south. But in connection with world com merce it has always been closely re lated to the fertile valleys of the Nile and the twin Mesopotamia rivers, and its commercial life of tomorrow can not he divorced from that of Mesopo tamia. 'The future of Syria depends upon the development of two ports and upon who controls these strategic centers of politics and commerce. Alexandretta and Haifa attain new importance as the Dardanelles are internationalized and free passage, open to all nations, cuts across what Germany was forg ing as a Berlin-to-Bagdad route, all but 800 miles of which, between Nis Ifin and Tekrit. a few miles above Sa marra. Is now complete. "This new line of traffic from Alex andretta past Aleppo to the Euphrates river at Jerablus. connecting the old est routes of international commerce, also separates two important lingual groups, for Turkish is generally spok en to the north of the railway and Arabic to the south. "Whatever political adjustment is made between England and France. Italy and Greece. Arabia and Syria, conservative Mecca and liberal Beirut, Zionist and Greek Orthodox. Christian and Moslem, Maronite and Druse, the line of division between the Turkish and Arabic tongues will be significant, for language differences as well as those of race exert a profund effect on political life in the Levant.

RUMANIA: PAWN OF MANY Rumania, which has attracted atten tion recently because of the visit of Prince Carol to this country, has been | a center of European war storms for j a thousand years. Peter the Great once established a j protectorate over the Rumanians and ! Catherine the Great later advanced a plan for the annexation of their ter-1 ritory to Rnssla. Fearing that such I territorial < r.ansion might he a men-j ace to her, Austria persuaded Cather ine to abandon that plan.

The Russo-Turkish treaty of San Stefano was overturned by the con- j gress of Berlin, but Russia's aim in j Bessarabia was not denied. Thus Rumania, after helping Russia In her i plight, came out of the war with less than she had when she went in.

"The story of the Inception and growth of the reindeer enterprise in Alaska Is very interesting and is not generally known." says the writer. "During an extended trip of Inspec tion of the missionary stations and government schools ln 1S90. Dr. Shel don Jackson, then general agent of ed ucation in Alaska, was Impressed with the fact that the natives In arctic and subarctic Alaska were rapidly losing their sources of food supply. "Doctor Jackson saw that unless something was done at once the Unit ed States would have to choose be tween feeding the 20.000 and more na tives or letting them starve to death. "The same moss which covered so many thousands of miles of the plains of arctic Siberia was seen everywhere in Alaska. The tame reindeer was practically the same animal as the wild caribou of Alaska, changed by be ing domesticated for centuries. "On his return to the United State* In 1S91. Doctor Jackson asked congress for an appropriation to provide the money for importing a few deer. Congress was not convinced of the wisdom of such action, bnt several pri vate persons were so Interested that they placed $2.000 at Doctor Jackson's disposal to begin the experiment. The first deer were brought over that year. It was not long before the government realized the importance of the move ment, and in 1S94 appropriated the sum of $6.000 to Mtttnne the work. Later the appropriation was increased and by 1900 amounted to $25,000 an nually." SHOES you catch me!
