FRIGHTFUL WARNINGS.
Dr. Talmago Continues His DIa
coui'bob on Palestine.
Hla Visit to tho I lead hea-Tlie Warning
Tauglit ly the Destrootlon of Nodoua
and (loiunrrah liesorlpllon of
the Jordsu.
In his fifth lecture upon the Holy
Land delivered at Brooklyn Rev. T. Do
Witt Talmaife announced as his text
Psalm civ. 3-2: "He toucbeth tbe hills
and they smoke." He said:
David, the poet, here pictures a vol
cano and what Church's Cotopaxl does
on painter's canvas this author does in
words. You see a hill, calm and etui.
and for ages immovable, but the Lord
out of tbe heavens puts His finger on
tho ton of It and from it rise thick
vapors, lntorsbot with fire. "He touch
etb the hills and they smoke."
God is the only lining who can man
ago a volcano, and again and again has
he employed volcanic action. The
pictures on tho walls of l'ompoli, the
exhumed Italian city, as we saw them
last November, demonstrate that tho
oltv was not fit to live. In the first
century that city, engirdled with pal
arcs, cmnaradised with gardens, pillared
into architectural oxqulsiteness, was at
the foot of a mountain up the sides of
which it ran with vineyards and villas
of merchant princes, and all that mar
ble, and bronze, and imperial baths,
and arboriculture, and rainbowed
fountains, and a coliseum at the dedica
tion of which 0,000 boasts had been
slain, and a supernal landscape in whloh
the shoro gave roses to the sea and the
soa gave crystals to the shore; yea, all
that beauty, and pomp, and wealth could
give was there to be seen or heard.
But tho bad morals of the city had
shockod tho world. In the year 70, on
August 4, a b'.aok column rose above
the adjoining mountain and spread out,
l'liny says, as he saw it, like a great
pine tree, wider and wider, until It be
gan to rain upon the City, first thin
ashes and then pumice stone, and sul
phurous fumes scooped and streams of
mud poured through tbe streets till few
people escaped and the city was buried,
and sorao of the inhabitants 1,800 years
after wore found embalmed In the
scorito of that awful doom.
The Lord called upon volcanic forces
to obliterate that profligate city. He
touched tbe hills and they smoked.
Nothing but volcanic action can explain
what I shall show you at tho Dead Sea
upon which I looked last December and
of whoso waters I took a bitter and
stinging taste. Concerning all that
region thero has been a controversy
enough to fill libraries, science saying
one thing, revelation saying anothei
thing. But admit volcanic action di
vinely employed and both testimonial
are one and the same. Geology, chem
istry, geography, astronomy, ichthyol
ogy, or nithology and zoology, are oom
ing one by one to confirm the Scrip
tures. Two leaves of one book are rev
elation and oreation and tbe penman
ship is by the same divine band. Out
horseback ride will not be so steep to
day and you can stay on without cling
ing to the pommel of the saddle, but
tbe scenes amid which we ride shall, if
possible be more thrilling and by the
time the horses snuff the sulphurous at
mosphere of Lake Asphaltlties or tbe
Dead. Sea we will be ready to dismount
and read from our Bibles about what
was done that day by the Lord when
lie touched the hills and they smoked.
Take a detour and pass along by the
rocky fortress of Masada where occurred
something more wonderful in the way of
desperation than you have ever heard
of, unless you have heard of that. Herod
built a palace amid the neaps of black
and awful rocks which look like a
tumbled midnight A great band of
robbers, about one thousand inoluding
their families, afterward beld the fort
ress. VV'hon the Roman army stormed
that steep and tho bandits oould no
longer hold the place, their chieftain,
Eleazar, made a powerful speech which
persuaded them to die before they were
captured. First tho men kissed their
f.imllieg a loving and tearful good-bye
and then put a dagger into their hearts
and tbe women and children were slain.
Great and rugged natural scenery
makos the most tremendous natures (or
good or evil. Great statesmen and great
robbers, great orators and great butoh-
ers, were nearly all born or reared
among mountain precipices. Strong
natures are hardly ever born upon tbe
plain. When men have any thing
greatly good or greatly evil to do they
come down off the rocks.
Pass on from under the shadow of
Masada, the scene ot the oonoontrated
diabolism, and come along where the
Bait crystals crackle under the horse's
hoofs. You are near the most God-for
saken region ot all tbe earth. You to
whom the word lake has heretofore sug
gested those bewitchments of beauty.
Luzerne or Cayuga, some great pearl set
by a loving God in the bosom of the
luxuriant valley, change all your ideas
about a lake and see this sheet of water
which the Bible calls tho Salt Sea, or
Sea of the Plain, and Josepus calls Lake
Aspbaltites. 1 Tbe muleteers will take
cure of tbe horses while we get down to
the brink and dip up tbe liquid mixture
in the 'palm of the hand. The
waters are a commlnglimg of
brimstone and pitch and have six
times larger percentage of salt than
hose of the Atlantic ocean, the ocean
having four per cent, of salt and this
lake 26 per cent Lake Sir-l-kol of
India Is the highest lake in tbe world-
This lake, on the bank ot whloh we
kneel, is the lowest lake. It empties
into no sea, among other things, for the
simple reason that water can not run up
hill. It swallows up tbe river Jordan
and makes no response .of thanks, and
never reports wbat it does witt) tj)e
twenty million cubic feet of water an
nually received from that sacred river.
It takes the tree branches and logs
floated into it by tbe Jordan and pitches
them on the banks ot bitumen to decay
there.
Tbe hot springs near its banks by the
name ot Callirhoe, where King Herod
came to bathe off his Illnesses, no sooner
pour into this sou than they are poi
soned. Not a fish scale swims it. Not
an insect walks It. It hates life, and if
you attempt to swim there it lifts you
by an unnatural buoyancy to tbe sur
face, as much as to Bay: "We want no
life hero, but death is our preference
death." Those who attempt to wade
into this lake and submerge themselves
come out almost maddened as with tbe
sting of a hundred wasps and hornets,
and with Hps and eyollds swollen with
tbe strange ablution.
In these regions once stood four great
cities of Assyria; Sodom. Gomorrah,
Adma and Zobolm. Tbe Bible says
they wore destroyed by a tempest of
fire and brimstone after these cities had
filled up of wickedness. "No, that is
absurd," cries some one; "it is evident
that Hits was a region of salt and
brimstone and pitch long before that"
And so It was. Tho Bible says it
was a region of Bulphur long before
the groat catastrophe. "Woll, now,"
says some ono, wanting to raise a quar
rel between sc!enco and revelation, "you
have no right to say the cities of tbe
plain were destroyed by a tempest ot
fire and sulphur and brimstone, because
this region had these characteristics
long beforn these cities were de
stroyed." Volcanic action is my reply.
These cities had boen built out of very
combustlblo materials. The mortar was
of bitumen, easily lighted, and the walls
dripped with pitch most Inflammable.
They sat, I think, on a ridge of hills.
They stood high tip and consplcous,
radiant In their sins, ostentatious in
their debaucheries, four hells on earth.
Ono day thero was a rumbling in tbe
earth and a quaking. "What's that?"
cry tho affrighted inhabitants. "What's
that?" The foundations of the earth
were g'ving away. A volcano, whose
fires ha'3 been burn-nff for ages, at God's
command burst forth, easily sotting
every thing aflame, and first lifting
these cltios high in tho air and then
dashing them down into chasms fath
omless. Tho fires of that eruption In
torshot the dense smoke and rolled unto
the heavens only to descend again.
And all the ciiiillgiii'ution of that
country was changed, and whore there
was a hill there came a valley, and
where there had been the pomp of un
cleanliness came widespread dosolution.
Tbe red-hot spade of volcanic action
bad shoveled under the cities of the
plain. Itcforo the catastrophe the cities
stood on the top of the salt and sulphur.
After the catastrophe they were under
the salt and sulphur. Science right.
Revelation right. "lie touched the
hills and they smoke."
No science evor frightened believers
in revelation so much us geology. They
feared that the strata of the earth
would contradict tho Scriptures, and
then Moses must go under. But, as in
tie Dead Sea iniitance, so in all cases
God's writing on tho earth and God's
writing In tho B lilo aro harmonious.
The shelves of rock correspond with
the shelves of tho American Bihlo So
ciety. Science d gs Into the earth and
finds deep down the remains of plants,
and so tho Bible announces plants
first Science d'gs down and
says, "Marine animals next," and the
Bible says, "Marino animals next"
Science digs down and says, "Land ani
mals next" and the Bihlo responds,
"Land animals noxt" "Then comes
man!" says science. "Thou coraos man!"
responds the Bible. Science digs into
the region about tho Dead Soa, and finds
result of fire, and masses ot brimstone,
and announces a wonderful formation.
"O, yes," says the Bible, "Mosos wrote
thousands of years ago, 'the Lord rained
upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone
and flro from the Lord out of Heaven,
and David wrote, 'He toucheth the hills
and they smoke.'" So I guess we will
hold on to our Bibles a little longer.
My text implies that God controls
volcanoes, not with tho full force of His
hand, but with the tip of. His finger.
Etna, Stromholl and Vesuvius fawn at
His feet like hounds before the hunter.
Thoso eruptions of tho hills do not be
long to Pluto's realms, as the anoients
thought, but to the divine dominions. If
our American oities do not quit their
profligacy, if in high life and low life
dissoluteness does not cease to be a joke
and become a crime, if wealthy libertin
ism continues to find so many doors of
domestic life open to its faintest touch,
if Russian, and French, and American
literature, steeped in pruriency, does
not get banished from the news stands
and ladies' parlors, God will let loose
some ot these suppressed monsters ot
the earth. And I tell those American
oities that it will be more tolerable for
Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of
judgment whether that day of judg
ment bo in this present century or in
the closing century of the earth's con
tinuance. The volcanic forces are al
ready in existence, but in the mercy of
God they are chained in the kennels of
Subterraneous fire. You let profligacy,
whether it stagger into a lazaretto or
sit on a commercial throne, wbethor it
laugh in a faded shawl under the stroet
gaslight or be wrapped In the finest ar
ray that foreign loom ever wrought or
lapidary ever impearled, know right
well that there Is a volcano waiting for
It, whether in domestic life, or social
life, or political life, or in the founda
tions of tbe earth from which sprang
out the devastations that swallowed tbe
cities of the plain. "He toucheth the
hills and they smoke."
But the dragoman was rejoiced when
we had seen enough of this volcanic
region ot Palestine, and he gladly
tightens the girths for another march,
around the horses which are prancing
and neighing for departure. We aro off
for the Jordan, only two hours away.
We pass Bedouins whose stern features
melt into a smile as we give them the
salutation, Salaam Alelkhoum, "Peace
be with you," their smile sometimes
leaving us in doubt as to whether it is
caused by their gladness to see us or by
our poor pronounclation of the Arabic.
O, they are a strange raoo, those Bed
ouins. Such a commingling of ruffian
ism and honor, of cowardice and cour
age, of cruelty and klndnoss.
At last, between two trees I got a
glimpse of a river, and ' said: "What is
that?" 'The Jordan," was the qu'ck
reply. And all along the line, which
bad been lengthened by other pilgrims,
sorpe from America, some from Europe
and some from Asin, the cry was sound
ed; "The Jordan! The Jordan!" Hun
dreds of thousands of pilgrims have
chanted on Its banks and bathed in its
Waters. Many of them dip a gown In
the wave, apd wring it out and carry it
home for their own shroud, It is an im
petuous stream and rushes on as though
it were hastening to tell its Btory to the
ages. Many an explorer has It whelmed,
and many a boat has It wrecked. Lieu
tenant Molineux had copper-bottomed
drafts split upon its sbelylngs. Only
one boat, that of Lieutenant Lynoh,
ever lived to sail the whole length of It
At the season when tbe snows on Leb
anon melt the rage ot this stream is
like the Conemaugh when Johnstown
perished, and tbe wild beasts that may
be near run for the hills, explaining
what Jeremiah says: "Behold, be shall
go up like a lion from the swelling ot
Jordan." No river so ofter changes its
mind, for it turns and twists, traveling
S00 miles to do that which in a straight
line might be done in sixty miles,
Among banks now low, now high, now
of rocks, now of mud and now of sand,
laving the feet of the terebinths and
oleanders, and acacias, and reeds, and
pistachios, and silver poplars. This
river marries the Dead Sea to Lake Gal
lilee, and did ever so rough a groom
take the hand of so fair a bride?
This is the river which parted to let
an army ot SJ,000,0')0 Israelites across.
Here tbe skilled Major General ot the
Syrian hosts at the Beventh plung drop
his leprosy, notonly by nilraoulousoure,
but suggesting to all ages that water
and plenty of it has much to do with
tbe sanitary improvement of the world.
Yea; from the bank of this river
Elijah took team of Are, showing that
the most raging element is servant of
the good, and that there is no need that
a child of God fear any thing; for it the
most destructive of all elements was
that day fashioned into a vehicle for a
departing saint, nothing can ever hurt
you who trust in the Lord. I am so
glad that that chariot ot Elijah was
not made out of wood, or crystal, or
any thing ordinarily pleasant but outot
fire, and yet be went up without having
so much as to fan himself. When,
stepping from amid the foliage pf these
oleanders and tamerlsks on tho banks
of tbe Jordan, he put his foot on the
red step of tbe red equipage, and took
the red reins of vapor in his hands and
spurred the galloping steeds toward the
wide opon gate ot Iteaven, it was a
scine forever memorable. Ho tbe hot
test afflictions of your life may roll you
heavenward. So the most burning per
secutions, tho most flory trouble may be
come uplifting. Only be sure that
when you pull on the bits of flro you
drive up toward God, and not down
toward the Dead sea. When Latimer
and Ridley died at the stake they went
up In a chariot of fire. When my
friend, P. P. Bliss, tho Gospel singer,
was consumed with tho rail train that
broke through Astabula bridge and then
took flame, I said: "Another Elijah
gone up in a chariot of fire!"
But this river of baptisms. Christ
was here baptized and John baptized
many thousands. Whether on these
occasions tho candidate for baptism and
the officer of religion went Into this
river, and then while lml ti were stand
ing the water was dipped in the hand of
one and sprinkled upon the forehead of
tho other, or whether the entire form
of the one baptized disappeared for a
woiueut beneath Ua surface vt the
flood, I do not now declare. While I
can not think without deep emotion of
the fact that my parents hold me In in
fancy to the baptismal fount In the old
mooting houso at Somervllle, and as
sumed vows on my behalf, I must toll
you now of another mode of baptism,
obsorved In tho river Jordan on that
afternoon In last Docombor, tho partic
ulars of whiok 1 now for tho first tsmo
relate.
It was a scene of unimaginable sol
emnity. A comrade in our Holy Land
journey rode up by my side that day,
and told me that a young man, who Is
now studying for tho Gosfiel ministry,
would like to be baptized by me in tho
river Jordan. I got all the facts I could
ooncernlng his earnestness and faith,
and through personal examination mailo
myself confident he was a worthy candi
date. Thero were among our Arab at
tendants two robes not unlike thoso
used for Amor. can baptisteries, and
these we obtained. As wo wero to have
a largo group ot different nationalities
present I dictated to my daughter a few
verses, and had copies enough made
to allow all to sing. Our dragoman
had a man familiar with the river
wade through and across to show
the depth and the swiftness ot
the stream, and the most appro
priate place for the ceremony. Then I
read from the Bible the accounts of
baptisms in that sacred stroam, and im
plored the presence of the Christ on
whose head the dove descended at the
Jordan. Then, as the candidate and
my sol f stepped into tbe wators, tho peo
ple on the banks sang In full and re
sounding voice:
On Jordan's storinv banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To (.'Rnnat's fair and happy land
Whero my po'Honlons lie.
O. the transporting, niptnrom scene
That rises to my sight
Hwoet tlnlds arrayed In living green.
And rivers of delight
By this time we had reached tbe mid
dle of the river. As the candidate sank
under the floods and rose again under a
baptism In the name of the Father and
tbe Son and the Holy Ghost, there
rushed through our souls a tide of holy
emotion such as we shall not probably
feel again until we step into the Jordan
that divides earth from Hoaven. Will
those waters be deep? Will thoso tides
be strong? No matter, if Jesus steps in
with us. Frlonds on this shore to help
us off. Friends on the other shore to
soe us land. See I They are
coming down tbe hills on the
other side to greet us. How
woll we know their step! How easily
we distinguish their voices! From
bank to bank we hall them with tears
and they hall us with palm branches.
They say to us: "Is that you, father?"
"Is that you, mother?" and we answer
by asking: "Is that you, my darling?"
How near they seem, and how narfow
the stream that divides ua.
Could wo but stand where .Moses stood.
And view tbe landBoape o'er
Not Jordan's stream nor death's oold 11 ood
Could fright us from the shore.
NOT TO BE BULLDOZED.

"Four tintypes for twonty-flve cents!
Gosh! That's cheap."
A yellow-haired man with a red
headed wife and six tow-headed chil
dren stood in front of a one-story photo
graphic studio on the North Side and
stared at a sign In the window.
"That's cheap," he ropoatod. "We'll
go in here, Liz. This is the place we'vo
been a-lookin' for."
The procession moved inside tbe tem
ple of art.
"Can you put tho whole hi lin' of us
onto a tintype?" he Inquired of the
photographer.
"Yes."
"Then goahead. I'll take fourof 'em."
Tbe photographer grouped the entire
Aggregation in front of a classical Gro
clan background, turnod the camera in
that direction, and the pictures soon
were ready.
"Do they suit you?" he inquired,
bringing them to the light for inspec
tion. "They'r'o bang-up. Ain't they, Liz?"
Liz expressed the opinion that the
portraits were perfect
"You understand, of course," said the
proprietor of the studio, "that twenty
five cents for four tintypes means
twenty-five cents for each ono ot you?"
"Gosh! I don't understand any such
thing. That ain't what your sign says
out thero,"
"The sign on a caretto says, 'Five
cents fare,' but you can't ride on ono
with your whole family for five cents,
can you?"
"That's different Them pictures is
just the same size as if there was only
one of us, ain't they?"
"Two dollars, please."
"It's a blamed swindle
"Two dollars!"
"I won't pay it by gum!"
"I'll bang them out and put a sign
on them: 'Not paid for.'"
"Do it," roared the yellow-haired pil
grim, marshaling tho procession in sin
gle file and marching outside at the
head of It "Do it!" he reiterated,
shaking his fist at the artist as the car
avan moved on its way down the street

: A WOOD-SAWING FLY.
The Marvelous Manner In Which the In
sect Conceals Its Kggs.
The Insect world is full of wonders,
and ft Is marvolous how many of those
tiny creatures conceal and preserve their
eggs. Some will deposit tbotn in extra
ordinary places, others will Insert them
in the skins of living animals. Others
again deposit their eggs whero the young
grubs after coming from the egg find
food closo at hand.
Among these last mentioned are in
sects who bestow great labor in tbe
cradle of their young. The place they
select is a hard part of a leaf or the
woody branch of a tree. In this they
saw out a hole largo enough to contain
their eggs, whence their name, saw
flies. For this purpose they are pro
vided with an ovipositor of peculiar con
struction. It consists of two long pieces
closing like a sheath over a third.
In the tenthrodo this third piece con
tains two saws, each of which has boen
compared to the tenon-saw used by cabinet-makers.
Tho tenon-saw is single,
but that of tho tenthredo is doublo, con
sisting of two distinct saws. The insect
in using them throws out one saw, and
while it is returning pushes forward the
other. This alternate motion is (con
tinued till the cut is made, when the
two saws receding from each other con
duct the egg between them Into Its
place. Not only is the edge of the saw
notched into teeth, but onovery tooth a
number of smaller tooth appear. Chi

Strong I'olnls of the l.ute Styles,
The strong points of tho dress of the
present aro suitability and appropriate
ness. The toilet for tho drawing-room
in no way resembles the gown suitable
for tho promenade, and the woman who
confounds the one with the other finds
herself greatly at variance with the
canons of good tasto and elegance wbich
happily prevail just now. The oxtreme
caprice, tbe luxury ami elaborateness of
home and evening toilets aro finely
counterpoised by tbe rich and studied
simplicity of those designed for the
street. The only fault of the latter cos
tumes consists in llio tendency to
lengthen ' the skirt, a departure In the
wrong direction which can not bo
cbecked too soon. For tho rose, woman's
dress at home and abroad is just now
most coiiiiiiendable. Draperies are easy,
and skirts graceful, the ugly tournure
dead, the Rleeves loose, and tight lacing
almost a thing of tho past, for women
now dress to walk, row, play tennis and
even cricket and base bull. They ridu.
drive and breathe. Wool is at a preiiiiiiu
for gowns and underwear, and couunon
seiisii shoes are ''up bead. " 1M. Y.

STORY OF A RIVtW.
A March Into Oldivu-i. Tli:it tinvc N'lime
In a New Mexican Sti-e-itm.
Over throe ci-til u ries hack u aid, and
before the iliciii"i! im M" Solo In. I
lighleil li is cainp-llie mi 1 1 m lianK M
of the Mississippi, tin Spauianli had
achieved two set I leinniil.s ill litis land
of the lc-i il ii I -Santa Fo and SL Au
gustine. Tlmy had no l( nowloilge of 1.1m
country which lay lml ween Wn-s.i points
or Its Inhabitants. As lo what, milit lm
the dangers ami deadfalls of a jmiririy
from one place to atuithor they wi-ro a t
blindly ignorant a-i of tlm liislni y of Hid
niooti. Itnt this igiioni m i' allccii d ilioin
not, and, full of the uneasy snii it ol Ihe
hour, a military parly in Santa I'e re
solved on an overland expedition to St.
Augustine. Tliey knew tlm distance,
fur they could li;'uio 1 lie laliltnle ami
longitude, and they could get I lie direc
tion by the compass; lml 111 is u as tlm
sum of their knou ledge.
Tho expedition, iiumlieriii'rsome hun
dreds ot men. loft Santa I'e late in tlm
Bummer, and, crossing tin- moiiiil.iins ar,
tlfo Baton I'ass, Dm present , mule of Ihe
Santa Fe railroad, tliey camped that
winter on the present silo of Trinidad.
The grass was long in tlm valley, Llio
gamo was plenty on Llio hills, their own
Stores wore ample, ami, sending back
to Santa Fo for minstrel ami glee maiden,
thoso gentlemen of tlm sword with wine,
women aud song got in as a gay a sea
son as tboy over have had since. Those
old dons were lads of spirit ami pos
sessed high hearts as well as a taste for
travel. Before tlmtn to I lie east ward as
far as tho eye could sweep spread tlm
desert uncon II ned. What was to lm met
thero they knew not, lml their lack of
knowledge was coincident w ith an equal
lack of care.
With the melting of tlm news in the
spring sunshine, their women ami camp
followers returned to Santa Fe. The
last band was waved goo.l -eye, i lm last
adieus was uttered and Dm explorers
turnod thoir resolute faces to the work
in hand. They marched down tlm val
ley of tho little muddy river, which
flows as you read this through tho town
of Trinidad. Tho ones who were to re
turn to Santa Fo watched them for
miles, assisted by the glare of tlm sun
on steel cap and harness. At last tliey
were bidden in the willows far down tlm
valley, and this was the last that was
evor known of thorn.
With the last Map of Mid last banner
it was as if tlmy had man-hod out of ex
istence and whether I hoy sunk in rivers,
perished in tho drifting snows or were
done to death by Indians was never
told. No sign or (race of l.iiisexpedil.ioii
or Its people were ever found. Thero
was something so eerie ami mysterious
in tho complete disappearance of this
band, something so d;u-k in the silence
of thoir fate, that the superstitious
Spaniard made the sign of the holy cross
when he recalled it. Willi that effort
at commemoration which was Ilm spirit
of that time tho little muddy torrent in
whose valley the lost explorers last were
seen was called Kl Kio do Los Animas
"The River of Lost Souls." This was
the Spanish name when SubletLn, Chou
toati, Bent, Carson, St. Vrain and other
representatives of the I'Vench Fur Com
pany, of St Louis, first saw it. Know
ing nothing of the story, ami assisted
only by their inferences drawn from tlm
namo, those translated the appellation
into the Purgatoiro. When the jocund
bull-whacker of tho overland trail got
to it in his free-and-easy French he.
called It "the I'icketwiro." Every brand
it ever had still sticks, ami to-day yon
will find the little vagrant of a stream
pursuing its glistening mission to the
sea with as many names as a ummlicr ol
tho British House of Lords. - Kansas

To Tax Cellbntes III Frttnce. j
M. Jules Simon has been giving bis ;
opinion on the proposal to tax French i
celibates. Tho total number in France, I
counting from the age of twenty-four to '
forty-nine, is S,07-I,H(), and out of that. ;
nu m her there are 1.7."0,lltHl young ;
women, llo proposes that if the law is j
voted the. tax on tho celibates shall not ;
apply to ladies. It Is probable, he says, ,
that a vast number of ladies in iiuestiou
have not been asked lo change t heir .
state of single blessedness, and il would
be obviously unfair lo punish them for
what in reality was the fault of others.
M. Jules Simon as Us that tlm whole
brunt of the law he directed against Llio
unfortunate J,'J'.J:!,-Jsu men whom lei con
siders to be "excellent material" for
taxation. Many politicians ask why the
limit of age should slop at forty-nine. -Pall
