Swill have been said a thousand times!.
Sill. there was one remarkable thing
i hbout the Fourth in I'aris, and th:at is
the way the French celebrated it.
Yes, celebrated is the word, for the
I tmrs and Stripes in muiniature were
men on almost as ninny French
bosoms as American. I spare you
?itbe speeches made at thei Washington I
,and Lafayette ceremnonials but mayv
notice the idea expressed by M.
Delcasse' minister for Foreign
Affairs, that France and America
sever can quarrel. It is prooably
true. The two republics are not, and
are not likely to ie, in competition
for trade or territory, the two chief'
causes of modern wars, though it is
always possible, anud iunv say proba -

Minister of Commerce (M. 3Millerand)
a ofw days ago in connection with
the sald Fourth, and while waiting I
for him I passed the time looking
through Fernand Ladirns "Grand I
Review" as he calls his monthly,
magazine. Labori is well know to
Amniricans as the heroic aihdocate of
i)reyfus-a tall, burly young man
with immense vitality and strength,
and any amount of fighting powea.
He is married to an Englishwoman
ond speaks English better than his
wife speaks French, no doubt, as he
tells you himself. Ibecause he makes
her talk English so that he may not
foret that language. "If she wants
a lesson in French let her come and
.take one in the courts", he adds.
Well, in the Grand Review another
Dreyfusite you know of in America,
Yves Guyot, suggests rather than
prophesies that France will some day
become protestant. Does that sir
prise you? Yet it is not so surprising

FRYING AND DYSPEPSIA.
Take the Trouble to study Uih PFys
lologr of DitleetJo.
It is not difficult to understand why
fried foods are so Indigestible If we
take the trouble to study the physiolo
gy of digestion, saFs the Philadelphia
Medical Journal. The protelds, which
are the chief nutritive constituents of
meat, oysters, fish and eggs, in order
to be digested and assimilated must be
-cted upon by the gastric or pancreatic
juices, and before this can take place
the layer of fat which has covered and
permeated the morsel In frying must
be removed. This is accomplished by
the process of emulsification. which
means the expenditure of a large
amount of digestive energy.
The butter applied to broiled meats
is far less pernicious, for not only Is
butter the most easily emulsified of the
fats, but it Is not soaked In by the
gradual heating, as Is the case with
most dried foods. The condition of the
fried starchy foods, like potatoes, is
very similar, for in order that the
starch may be changed Into assimilable
grape sugar It must be acted upon by
the amylopsin of the pancreatic Juice.
What can be done to lessen the fried
food nuisance? Perhaps nothing so long
as' present conditions exist; so long as
the highest Ideal of the people Is to ac
cumulate dollars rather than to develop
and preserve healthy Iodles which
shall be the servants of healthy minds.
Yet if those liho teach physiology In
our public and other schools under
stood their subject and its practical ap
plications as they should. if there were
more schools In which wholesome, eco
nomical cooking were taught as It
should be. If physicians took every op
portunlty to impress such facts of prac
tical hygienic importance as they
should there can be no doubt that by
some sensible and well informed people
the fried abominations would be avoid

How iee|trilety Pools Plants.
That electric lights completely fool
plant life has been proved. A certain
nurseryman who has an Immense tract
of land covered with greenhouses and
hotbeds stumbled upon this fact in a
curious way. lie had noticed that all
the bushes and plants which he had
placed on the north side of his house
did not thrive nearly so well as those
on the south side, where they had sun
all day long. One day an electric light
Ing company put up a great are light
on the street corner at the north of his
house. Result: In less than a year's
time the plants on the north side be
came more luxuriant In growth than
those on the south side. The nursery
man, taking the hint, had a series of
are lights installed In all of his green
houses and with great success. As an
example of how useful this scheme
may be: Last year Easter came rather
early, and this man's stock of lilies was
rather backward in budding, so he put
in their greenhouse a double row of
are lights, keeping them burning all
night, and so forced the growth that he
had his plants ready for market ahead
of many of his competitors.
No elaborate stataUtles are necessary
to prove that many fires might be pre
vented If carpets, curtains, draperies
and clothing were noncombustible.
This is precisely what a firm of Ger
man manufacturers proposes to bring
about. After several years of experi
menting they announce the discovery
of a chemical treatment that will ren

fiber fireproof. The process Is cheap
and adds but little to the weight of the
article treated. It may readily be seen
