The butchery of Christians by the defeated Turks has begun, according to reports. It Is well within the realms of safe prediction to say that the more desperate the cai.se of the Turks be comes, the more slaughter of Chris tians there will be. That will be the final revengeful protest of the Moslem fanatics against the triumph of civilis ation and Christianity. The responsibility for the bloody and atrocloua tragedies about to be enacted In Turkey res not alone upon the Turks, but also upon those European Christian nations w hlch for years have permitted the continued existence of the "sick man," and also have actually promoted the efforts1 of this relic of political and social barbarism to pro ject Itself into the SOth century.

KEEP THE FAITH. The New York World says that some so-called conservative influ ences are already at work to split the democratic party and balk the work of tariff revision. The World states that "pressure has been brought to bear upon President-elect Woodrow Wilson not to call the con gress together in special session to revise the Payne-Aldrich schedules, and pressure has al6o been brought to bear upon the democratic national committee to oppose a special session." This is a counsel of Infamy similar to that which persuaded President Cleveland not to call a special session i to revise the McKiniey protective tar- 111 downward to 1893. Notwithstanding the efforts of such democratic states men and patriots as Senator John M. Palmer and Congressman William M. Springer, and other prominent demo cratic members of congress and citi zens. President Cleveland made the mistake of his political life and would r.ot listen to the pleadings of Palmer, Springer and others. This was the beginning of the fatal mistakes that derided the democratic party and .which have kept it out of power in restored to power on the issue of tar- ln revision downward, in order to reac h a reven.m hnki- on trin ! relieve the consumers of the country of an immense burden, paid as tribute to the Bn.ii int,ot., should not and will not' listen to the j seductive pleadings of the robber tar-1 iff beneficiaries. j No democratic member of congress ar.d no democratic national committee- ,ort WiIsn to do other than to keep ,ue PIedes made to the people on the tariff ,S8ue 89 speedily as possible.

It makes me weary to hear people these days complain of hard times," remarked Judge J. T. Keagy of Wa baunsee county. "Why, it Is like para dise now compared to the early days in Kansas. I shall always remember a story which my neighbor, Herman Meseke, who settled In Kansas in I860 with his bride, told me. The Me6ekes settled on a homestead that year, but the drouth was so se vere that they raised nothing. Aside from a few farm implements they had a yoke of oxen and two hens. In the lute autumn Meseke found that he had enough money to provide flour for himself and bride through the winter and enough rye to parch for coffee. The two hens occasionally laid eggs, but Mrs. Meseke felt that they should keep the eggs until their needs be came greater. infection, it Is believed, has been erad- j i rated. Ludlngton, Mich.

The French custom is always rolls and coffee served either in their own room or dining room. The English, all the food necessary for breakfast. Is on the table. A hotplate keeps the one or two dishes hot, and each one comes in when be is ready and helps himself. The American custom Is usually to have the breakfast table set and the family gather at once to eat, I know a family here who never set the table for breakfast Cheap, light trays and paper doylies are in readiness for each member of the fam ily. When ready for breakfast he or she gets the tray and silver and puts on whatever he or she chooses to eat breakfast food, hot rolls, coffee, etc., aB in readiness in the kitchen. The tray is then carried to the dining room table. When finished they pile up the dishes and put them away in their respective places. This Is in a family of four, with children old enough to help them selves, and they all like it. Most business men prefer a quiet breakfast with their paper and can more easily plan every detail for the day's work. All this, however, must be worked out by the housekeeper as 6he sees it best, for the greatest good and to the greatest number in her family. COR MEAL HUSH.

He was for many years the president of a great university, a position which has many sides that are decidedly "practical." His efforts to democratize university life were practical and bi ought him much trouble and pain ful experience. His efforts to popular lie etudy and hard work were practi cal. His language his talk about "side shows" and the "main tent" of colleges struck all educators as in tensely practical and apt.

General Le Terrier told this story at j dtnuer In his own house to his friend. M. Chauvetean: "I entered the army at the opening of the war of 1870, enlisting in an infan try regiment My father was a plain farmer not far from Fontainebleau. and I was among a people who were very much excited over the war and intent upon the soldiers who were being re cruited in their midst I was very much in love with a girl of seventeen who smiled sweetly upon me. especial ly after 1 bad enlisted to fight the Prus sians. I joined the Forty-third, whose uniform was the simple baggy red trousers and blue coat of the common infantry soldier, and soon had occasion to regret that I had not joined a more showy corps, for when a recruiting of ficer for the Twelfth cuirassiers came along a rival of mine for my girl's fa vors, Francois Duval, enlisted in that corps and when uniformed was re splendent in white riding breeches, high boots, a shining metal cuirassier and helmet My sweetheart Clochette whs her name when next she passed me had just seen Francois riding along the road decked out in all his finery. I saw an expression of disappointment on her face the moment she looked at com monplace myself. "Nor was this all. The very next day I saw her walking beside my rival. seemingly dazed by his splendor. As soon as I could obtain leave I went to see her and received a very cool reception. "I at once put in an application to be transferred to the lancers, whose uni form Is quite as beautiful as the cui rassiers". But of course no attention was paid to such a request, and I was doomed to continually appear before the girl I loved in the cheap uniform of an infantryman. I wlsnea we would be marched at once to the war, that 1 might betake myself and my red breeches away where Clochette would see neither. But the regiments "IN A HOMBNT SHE WAS MARCBINO BS BIDS ML" in our vicinity were not filled up for some time, and the people principally the girls were constantly gaping at us. And I noticed that those corps which wore the showiest uniforms gathered the biggest crowd3. Every time 1 saw Clochette go by me with my rival, moking up at him as though be w-as a statue of Jupiter. I wished 1 could decorate myself with gold lace and spangles. "Well, we got away in time and were marched to the frontier. We who came from about Fontainebleau were In the same army and fonght the Prus sians side by side. I saw Duval's regiment occasionally making a charge, aud it was magnificent. I could not blame any girl for preferring one of these fellows in shining breastplnte and helmet, mounted on a splendid horse wildly galloping npninst the enemy, to a miserable Infantryman trudging along on foot in red trou sers and with n cheap pompon In his bat no bigger than a boy's rubber boll. Once 1 saw Duval himself riding In the ranks, and he saw me, looking down upon me as the general of an army would look upon a drummer boy. "However. I had one advantage that all soldiers do not possess. I was a born fighter. Most of us are good for something, and fighting was my re deeming quality. I have never been good for anything else. At Gravelotte a body of Pruxslans came down on us in such superior numbers as to over power our regiment, which was the tip of the left wing. Within five minutes the colonel, lieutenant colonel and ma jor were killed, besides many of the line officers. Our fellows were starting to run. leaving the flank exposed so that the Prussians conld slip in right behind the line, which was a mile long. Either a rout or the capture of most of this line wn Imminent. Tbe cui rassier were driven back, and I cunght sight of my rival galloping to the rear. It was a critical moment like the first few drops of water trickling through a long bole in, a dam which If not stopped, w ill let loose a frightful flood. It was I who plugged the hole. Taking up the colors, which were being tram pled on the ground, 1 held them aloft and cried out: " 'Comrades, reform on your flagr "Immediately they began to reform as I directed at an angle with the next regiment on our right, so that instead of having the Prussians on our flank we faced them. The general of our division, seeing the situation, ordered a regiment from an unexposed point to support us, and tbey enme in our rear at a double quick. The danger was Daily Story averted. Other corps kept coming to that part of the field, and we were strong as adamant. After the fight my . general sent for me and said: "'You are advanced to the rank of major and will assume command of your regiment at once. Go and get off the uniform of a private and put on that of a field officer.' "Do you kn&w what I was thinking about when he said that? I was wish ing my reward had brought me into the ranks of the lancers that I might don a showy uniform with which to win back Clochette. However, I could only feel pleased that I should at least equal my rival by being mounted, and, though my uniform would be much the same as before, it would be of finer texture and more highly decorated. "As you know, we met with one dis aster after another, and at last those of us who were not killed or captured were driven back across our country, the Prussians following ns. I had been advanced to the rank of general of brigade. I was very young for such a position about twenty-one; but, as I have said, I was a born fighter and noth ing else. I couldn't understand why so many of my comrades remained in the ranks while I had been so speedily ad vanced. I didn't value my promotion, because with all the gewgaws worn by a general of brignde I did4not consider him a bird of such fine plumage as a private of cuirassiers, nor would Clo chette. "As luck would have it we approach ed Paris through the region from which we had marched to the war, and the worst of it was that the Twelfth cui rassiers were returning by the same route. I still loved Clochette. Yon know, the struggle was very brief and there had been uo change in me as the man only as the soldier. I knew as we marched through my native village the country people would line the way looking at us and Clochette would be among them. Though I would ride at the head of my brigade, with Clochette I would not count for as much as Du val in his splendor of a private of cui rassiers. Something must be done. I thought out a plan on which I acted, and yon are the first man to learn of It. "The evening before we were to pass through Fontainebleau I rode over to the headquarters of General Berrien of the Eighteenth corps and told him that I wished to march through the Tillage with his command, in which 1 -was not known. I told him my secret and my experience, at which he luugb ed heartily. Then I asked him to per mit me to march past my neighbors at the head of one of the bands of bis command as drum major. When I ex plained my reason he embraced me, remarked that 'all the world loves a lover,' said my plan was admirable and assured me that in the showy uni form of a drum major I would certain ly win my sweetheart. "The leader of the bnnd of the Fifty-third, he said, wci.is the most showy uniform of any drum major, and you shall take his place." "He sent an orderly for this man, who reported at once, and I wus pleas ed to see thnt. though be was tall, 1 was nearly his height. lie was ordered to send his uniform to my headquar ters and to turn over the leadership of his band the next day to me. "Much bad happened since we bad marched away that our friends at home knew little or nothing about. No one knew of my advancement. When we marched through the town girls joined their fathers, their brother and their lovers, marching baud in hand with them. 1 had placed myself at the head of the Fifty-third band and looked magnificent In my splendid uni form. While marching through the town, twirling my baton high abovs my bead. I espied Clochette among the throng beside the road. She was look ing at me admiringly. I smiled nt her. She knew me nnd in another moment was marching beside me. "I had won. And how? By yielding' to a womanly fancy for dlsplny. J-A, more intelligent girl wou!d have pt"e ferred me ns general but Clocheftt wus an embodiment of feminine alufr pllclty. As we marched along side by side. I throwing my stuff high in th nlr. she was more proud of me and herself as my girl than she would have been reflecting the glory of a marshal of France." The sieaker having come to the end of his yarn looked nt bis wife, sitting at the other end f the table. aut said: "My dear, ha.'e I told the story cor rectly?" "Perfectly so far as your own folly is concerned." "Did you not march beside me when I was masquerading ns a drum ma jor, and thnt alter giving my rival a preference?" "I did. Tbnt was my folly. It may be permissible for you to give M. Chau veteau your feelings, but only 1 can express mine." "Well. then, let ua have them. "I married you lecause you loved me so well ns to make a fool of your self on my account." With a burst of lai'gbter the men rose from the table.
