' BlUVSilY OF TURKS J NOT THE RESULT OF RELIGIOUS INSPIRATION. Writer In the Contemporary Review Declares Indifference to Danger Is a Purely Racial Char acteristic with Them. The bravery of the Turkish "Meh med" (Tommy) la well known. Ac cording to A. de Ulllnsky In the Con temporary Review, It proceeds from the absolute unconsciousness of dan ger. In its blindness it is almost anl-mal-llke. but, precisely on that ac count, knows no limits. Its nature Is best revealed by the attention the Turkish soldier is capable of giving In the thick of battle to trivial details of ordinary life, such as the undoing of his boot springs, which he will sit down calmly and unconcernedly to put right, or the flight of a bird, which he will follow iu Its course, or a humor ous incident which will set him laugh ing. It Is a purely racial character istic. Contrary to what is generally thought to be the case, religious in spiration has little or nothing to do with it. Islamism only adds to the warlike enthusiasm of the Turk. It makes him more eager, more strenuous, more en terprising In battle with the infidel, ince death In such a case secures to him the transcendent rewards of martyrdom. Hut his fearlessness is not greater when he is waging war against the latter than when he Is fighting his rebellious Albanian or Arab coreligionist, which he is con stantly employed In doing by order of the sultan. He is as enduring as he is brave, and as disciplined as he is en during. What he can put up with In Hie way of hardships of every descrip tion is far beyond the capacity of the I'uropean soldier, not excluding the llussian, who, however, might equal the Turk in this connection were It not for the drinking habit to which he Is a victim and from which the former is absolutely free. To find an exact parallel for the power of the Turk to defy all forms of suffering we must go to China and Japan. It does not detract in the least Imm his meriit in this respect to say, what is perfectly true in his case as in I hat of the Chinese and Japanese, that his impassiveness where pain-producing circumstances are concerned, pro--iedR In a great measure from insensi bility. Ultimately this means the pos session of an exceptionally healthy ;md robust constitution; and health Had strength, which certainly are among the Inheritances of the Turk, nre great virtues. The discipline of the Turk does not show in superficial mat ters. He reserves his salute for full blown generals and otherwise behaves towards his superiors with a sans Hfne which produces a bad impression on those who are accustomed to con nect obedience with a complicated dis play of respect. Mut his submissive Mi'ss to those in command is quite extraordinary, though under the pres ent government of Turkey the con ditions of his military service have become so intolerable that mutiny ! as become a frequent occurrence iu the imperial army. The wonder is that any discipline at all exists in its midst. The reliant and resourceful, i should add that this last quality is characteristic of all the inhabitants of Turkey, who, in the semibarbarous condition of the courts, ars constantly forced to exercise their wits with great keenness to preserve their late existence. A Moving Appeal. He was a motherless . boy and his father's only child, but some of the relatives had decided that he should be sent to a boys' school, 50 miles from home, and at last father had agreed to the plan. Forty-eight hours after his boy's de parture the father received a letter, which was, although not faultless as an example of spelling, so much to the point, and so in accord with his own feelings, that the plans for the future were speedily readjusted. "Dear father," wrote the exile, "it is all right here and I'm not homesick I beleave, but life Is very short, and don't you think you'd better let us jspend some more of it together? Your affectionate son, THOMAS." Youth's Companion. Close to Nature. A gentleman from one of the north ern states hurried to Texas to the bed side of his son, who lay sick with a very high fever, says Harper's Week ly. The doctor who accompanied him was very anxious to procure some Ice for his patient, and the father went out in search thereof. He approached a group on the hotel piazza. Inquiring where he might get some ice. None of the group made any response for some time, but when the Inquiry was re peated, one man finally renounced to bacco Juice for articulation. Striding to the end of the balcony, he ejected the Juice and made the still somewhat Irrelevant reply: "Well, who the h 1 ever heered o Ice In the summer time?" Birds Spread Infection. A serious risk of tuberculosis from pet birds Is alleged by Dr. Tucker Wise of Montreux, who records 33 cases of apparent Infection, with other evidence from eminent physicians. The life of caged birds like canaries, pigeons and parrots especially favors tuberculous disease, and the flutter ing of their wings and the action of flies readily convey infection to the family.

"Will someone kindly tell me." spoke the man from behind a news paper, "why they are always speaking about a dash for the pole? My im pression of these Polar expeditions, gained from reading, is that they pro ceed by painful and tedious stages, creeping along over vast expanses of ice and snow, climbing wearily over the Ice hills and hummocks and stop ping to bridge yawning crevasses and pitfalls. The word 'dash' in my mind is always associated wjth a sharp, quick run to a certain point, and yet we are told that sometimes Tolar ex plorers manage to make only a mile or two a day and that by the hardest work. How can any one call progress ihat often lasts several months a 'dash?' "We read that Wellman Is going to make a 'dash' for the pole by means of a balloon. We are told that I Vary is going to make a dash for the pole by means of Ice sledges drawn by Es quimau dogs. And now I see by the paper here that another explorer is going to make a 'dash' for the pole In sledges drawn by Polar bears. Now my impressions of Polar bears are that they are slow and sluggish in movement. How is one going to make a 'dash with such ungainly crea tures?" HOW'S YOIM KIDNEYS? Have you tried Dr.' W.

Autograph Fiend an Easy Mark for' the Unscrupulous. W. K. Collett, secretary of the Col orado Prison association, was talking In Denver ahout 50 autograph letters from widows that he recently received wherein each widow offered gladly to marry one of Mr. Collett's proteges, a reformed convict In search of a wife. "I shall keep most of those widows' autographs," said Mr. Collett. "They are very Interesting. A collection of autographs of such a character would be worth having, wouldn't 4t? Differ ent from the usual dull collections of mere signatures, eh?" He Btniled and went on: "An autograph fiend who collects mere signatures Is rather a fool, and he Is very easily taken In. Whenever I think of him, I think of a little story about him. "According to this story, rn auto graph fiend walked into an old curi osity shop and said: "You advertise that you have au tographs of Vashlngton and Shake speare for sale. If your terms are reasonable, I should like to purchase specimens of each of those auto graphs. "The proprietor bowed politely. Then he went to the back of the shop and said to a man who was painting a larse canvas on an easel: " 'Put away that Rembrandt for tho present, Jim, and write me out an au tograph of Washington and one of Shakespeare. Gentleman waiting out side.' " BUTTER BY THE YARD. Dairy Product Is So Sold in City of Cambridge, England. In Cambridge, England, butter Is sold by the yard. For generations It has been the practice of Cambridge shire dairy folk to roll their butter Into lengths, each length measuring a yard and weighing a pound. Deftly wrapped In strips of clean white cloth, the cylindrical rolls are packed in long, narrow baskets made for the pur pose, and thus conveyed to market. The butter women who, in white linen aprons and sleeves, preside over the stalls in the market have no need of weights or scales for dispensing their wares. Constant practice and experi enced eyes enable them with a stroke of the knife to divide a yard of but ter into halves or quarters with al most mathematical exactness. The university people are the chief buyers of this curiously shaped pro duct. In addition to being famed for its purity and sweetness, Cambridge "yard butter" Is eminently adapted for being served to the students in the daily commons. Cut in conveniently sized pieces and accompanied by a loaf of the best wheat bread, a stated portion Is sent round every morning to the rooms of the undergaduates for use at breakfast and tea. The Sun day Magazine. Music Von Moltke Loved. Arthur M. Abell in his sympathetic memorial article on Joachim tells the following interesting story of von Moltke and the great violinist. A more ardent lover of music than Helmuth von Moltke never lived. He was an in timate friend of Joachim, and the great violinist was a frequent gue3t at his house. When the two Illustri ous men were quite alone Joachim would take his violin and play Spohr adagios for hours for Moltke would hear nothing else on such occasions. Once, Joachim, after having played Spohr to him for two hours, said: "Wouldn't you like to hear a couple of Hungarian dances for a change?" "No," replied von Moltke, "I prefer Spohr adagios; If you don't tire of playing them, I never tire of hearing them." So the violinist kept on with Spohr until far Into the night. Are You Left-Eared? "Left-eared?" said the physician. "Most of you girls are." "Left-eared?" said the young lady from the telephone exchange. , "Yes. left-eared. The same as left handed. That Is to say, is your left ear better at Its work than your right one?" She did not know, so he tested her, finding, sure enough, that her left ear was a little the acuter of the two. . "It Is a natural thing," he said. "You girls use the left ear exclusively all day long In your telephone work, and the right ear has nothing to do. Hence the left, like a muscle", develops; the right atrophies. "Indeed," he ended, "If the tele phone comes Into much greater use we shall have not merely left-eared exchange girls, but we shall become a left-cared nation." . t Second-Hand English.

Fruits and vegetables of all kinds should be raised on the farm for the happiness of the family. This should be an unnecessary suggestion for the American farmer, but It Is still the truth that on many of our farms little fruit of any kind is to be found. The whole attention of the farmer Is given up to crops that he looks upon as noney bringing crops. Hut the crops of small fruits where raised are just is much money-bringing crops. They ilso help to keep the doctor from the loor and save money In that way The children especially should have ill the fruit they can eat, especially at ueal time, when the fruit goes to lighten up the general mass of food and assist in the digestion of all.
