than in a street car or railroad train."

The London Daily News presumes
that the powers have accepted a Mus

Commissioner for carrying out the re

have added it would be a disappoint

a Turk Is to be at the head of the scheme
there will l- no reforms, there will be
more massacres like the horrible butch
eries now going on at Treblzond, AdiU
and Anatolia, where hundreds of Chris
tians have been murdered pending the
promulgation of the scheme by the Sulv
lime Porte. All there is to an agree

Turkish papers that he has already be

only means more soldiers, more niur
ders and more taxation. It Is incredible
that the great lowers wlih h have con
trol of Turkey should allow these mas
sacres to continue anil permit them
selves to be deceived over and over
again by the unspeakable Turk.
It will gratify Christian people every
where to learu that at last the Kuro
pean powers have forced the Sultan to
take steps which may fairly be expect
ed to prevent a recurrence of the Arm-1-nlan
ma-ssacres. No one will misinter
pret tiie motives actuating the Turkish
authorities. The porte is no nearer to
civilized practices than It has ever
been. 1 he fact is, of course, that the
comb'.ued coercion of six European
powers has been too much for the Turk,
ami be hits acceded to the demands of
civilization simply from the impulse of
self-preservation. The extent of his
unwilling acquiescence is measured by
the fact that he has not only assented
to the entire program laid down by the
European powers, but has agreed to ac
cept the Installation of a Christian to
put the new system in operation. In
view of this triumph for humanity It
dox-s not seem too much to bie that at
last a means has been found of making
the unspeakable Turk obey the dictates
of nineteenth century Here-
tofore the Sultan has promised lavishly
and broken his promises with simiiar
extravagance. The system perfected
by the European powers does not seem
to admit of much promise breaking
without Instant and very wholesome
retribution for It This time he may
try to break his promises If be likes

Southern Hospitality.
A discourse on Southern hospitality
would be upon an old text; but as most
old texts are the especially good ones.
It would be a pity quite to drop them.
It has been predicted that with the
abolition of slavery and the consequent
difficulty In securing household assist
ance, there will be a decline of the old
famed hospitality; that it will not out
live this generation. Were the hearti
ness of this virtue confined to eutlug,
drinking and housing, we might fear
that with increased household labor
might be decreased cordiality of enter
tainment but there ia a further mani
festation than the mere attention to ap
petite. It's the being welcome to what
they have, rather the attention to what
they have, which especially marks the
warmth of the Southern manner; we
hope It la long that we shall know and
remember this beautiful virtue. Wom

a circle about the enrched figure of a
girl, from which one foot was missing,
but there was no one to speak her

A few minutes before 3 o'clock th"
ghastly find of the day was made. It
was the trunk of a woman. The body
was bloody, the arms and feet bumf d
off. The head was seen at some little
distance from the trunk, completely
severed by a falling timber. It was
bard work getting out these, awful re
