(From Our ll',Jelr I ',rri spo,,lrit.) PARIS, Ft"VN.c, JuLi. 15, 1900. I wish I could say soinething new sbout the Fouilh-wlat will the writers of a thous ind yais a hence do b' When everything that can possibly be m id Washington and Independence 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 - ble that America nmay ole lav have to stand shoulder against France an ,l other Latin countries in an Anglo Saszon struggle amiiist the world. It was part of my dutly to gee thJe 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 If you think of it. The qualities of the French mind and character are eminently adipted for P'ioteltant aim -shrewd, logical, not easily dec. rived once tihe first glamour of some precious dlogma has worn off, such are the French. But first let me say tht when I speak of France 1 do not moan Paris nor when I speak of Paris do I think of Fiance. They are twoI -ountries. almost two nationalities,[ l Ud though, politically and artisti a illy, Paris rules France, it is only: amperficlally and she gives France -either religion nor morality. That Is done by Rome, for .tie priests edu-' Mets the intellectual and moral forces' 0O the nation ant the priests take clr instructions from Rome. But for Napoleon the First-a priest-des. luPer if ever there was one-France S*ipt easily have become Piotestant M the Revolution: In fact Na|>oleon WM widely revilel for supportiig the Soreaiga influence of the Pope and for O*pling the Concordat with in 18111. The Concordat is the base of the l.Tfecnt French religious system. 'alt Napoleon coutl not do without the Pope, o ratllhe hIlls ambition made i ather his amlnitiou minalie hiu suippose be toulu uakce the I'o,e his vassal, s*d through the I'opie foreign coun trit.

' the Catholic Chur.ch with its glittermnn ceremonial, its fetea, and its clever i)rie'etlhood are almost the sole meani of intellectual distraction and amuse. ment for the people. Literature is not spreadl and read through Frarce as ii1 the Uuited States. I only say there is a Protestant movement of consi derable force and that vast numbers of French people despise the French clergy and their ways. Many, cer taiuly, detest the co-ifesaional. Whe ther anything w'll happen to streng then the movement I speak of. or to hopelessly discredit the Cttholic Church in France, no one can say One thing seems obvious. Uules there shall be some great moral ichange, some species of purgation, Fr.inee inmut continue to sink in the scale of nations like Italy, Spain, I Belgium, and other Catholic or large I lyv Catholic nations. I was talking the other bay to Arch Bi.shop Ireland of St. Paul about the use of English in the Cath olic Church. lie thinks the church will one d(ay use nolthing but Enlisli and remininded m, that de Mlaistre so i prpllei4i a hunulred years ago. If ever such a thing does hapen, if the I,atin mass and the gay ritual that becomes necessary owing to the m:tls's failure to reach the wor shipper's heart, is over anglicised, it will be at any rate a first step towards reform. To turn to another'subject, yet one not wholly irrelevant, foreign langu Sages, Mr Charlemagne Twower, the United States Ambassador to Russin, has written a letter to the New York Times Paris Exposition emphasizing the impoitance to Atuericans of learn. ing foreign languages. Mr. Tower asserts that not only in diplomacy hut in trade is a sound knowledge of foreign languages necessary, and all thj more now tuat America is enter ing upon new and far-off fields of enterprise and administration. It seems good advice if we are really reconciled to expansion. And expand we surely must ;it is inevitable: not. perhaps, by merely grabbing territory, but in the race of progress that is going on between all nations over a globe that every year is becoming more and more common ground. - . - a-UP 410 1.. . 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 ed. The Earth'a Center. Of Inte yenrs the gtneral view hT a been thant the Interior of the globe. though partly liquid . I for the most oart solld. Some. Pays Pearmon's Week ";i,.

(2) a semifluid envelope, (3) a fluid en velope, (4) a semifluid envelope and (5) a solid nucleus. No. 1 results fromu a reduced temperature only; No. 2, from a pressure and temperature not quite sufficient for liquefaction; No. 8, from a temperature sufficiently high to produce complete liquefaction; No. 4, from a pressure so great as to pre vent even the terrific heat which most certainly exists deep down in the earth 'from completely liquefying the ma terial on which It works; No. 5, from a pressure which overcomes completely the liquefying power even of the maxl mum heat of the Interior. This pressure isto estimated to be, at the center of the earth, 7,180,U53.750 pounds to the square foot, a pressure so enormous that no known substance could fuse beneath It. Even hydrogen at the highest possible temperature would,. under such conditions, become as hard as a diamond. Hence It seems proba ble that, far from there being a vacuum at the center of the earth, there is a mass of Intensely solldifled matter there. 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. Fireproof Cloth. 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 der any fabric of cotton, linen, wool or fiber fireproof. The process Is cheap and adds but little to the weight of the article treated. It may readily be seen that this discovery will be valuable for securing the better safety of hotels by treating carp.ets, curtains ana Inside woodwork; of advantage for cover nlags of explosives, atid a a muinltitude of other ways. It is not llmprobablh a way may be found to ilanie it water. lproof. In any event it nmust be regard. ed as an IipaorUtint archle emic nt nnd as opening a prospect for the greater se curlty of property. Grass Fornlttre.
