Now York World says: "Never has
the Turkish government been in such
financial straits as now, and the dis
content in tho army constitutes a real
danger. It is impossible to see how
the $1,800,000 expenses of the Ramazan
and Bairam, due In December and
January, can be met. The troops in
many provinces are unpaid and there,
have been mutinies in several dis
tricts. Hostile demonstrations here
recently have only been quieted by
the authorities hastily scraping to
gether a few thousand piastres as
something on account. A band of
Armenian revolutionists, commanded
by one Andranik, has seized an. Ar
menian convent near Mush and Is en
trenched there. The convent Is sur
rounded by troops."
The Grecian cabinet has resigned be
cause of the demonstration against the
proposed translation of the gospels in
to modern Greek.

An American life Insurance com
pany has made such enormous profits
from its American policies that it i
announced tihat it will erect a modern
American building in Paris.
A New York dispatch to the Chicago
Tribune says the $25,000,000 paid In by
the banking syndicate which financed
the tJnlted Ciates steel corporation luin
been returned to the members of tho
syndicate. The profits of tho syndi
cate, however, which are variously es
timated at from 25 to 37 per cent
of the amount of their original sub
scriptions, have not been divulged.
James It. Keene made the announce
ment of the return of $25,000,000 as
follows: "The $25,000,000 which was
called up by the United States syndi
cate has been returned. Checks have
been received this morning. This
money has been returned because ir
was no longer needed. The earnings
of the company are so large that before
tho end of its fiscal year the steel cor
poration will have $75,000,000 of work
ing capital. The return of the $25,
000,000 does not change the position
of tho $200,000,000 syndicate which is
still intact and is under the steel
stocks. The net profits of the steel
corporation for the month of October
were about $ll,600,00(h"

First a Bible, then a dictionary, then

for laying the foundations of a house
hold library. Assuming that you have
the first two, you must next choose
among the various editions of the
third. In point of scholarship, which
is not merely an exhibition of learning,
but is learning adapted to the actual
nee'ds of the reader, there can bd no
question that The University Society's
New International Shakespeare stands
very high, If not the highest, among
the many editions of Shakespeare's
works, In this edition the works of
the great poet are given complete and
at a price that Is very reasonable when
the merit of the work is considered.
Besides having a text that has been
collated by the best of authorities, tho
International Edition Is completely
supplied with notes, glossaries, critical

comments and prefaces. In this edi
tion Shakespearian scholarship has
reached its highest mark of excellence.
Tho numerous notes and helps to the
student make this the Ideal edition for
those who are studying Shakespeare.
Another excellent feature, often neg
lected in Shakespeare, is the splendid
illustrations. There is also included a
plan for the study of each play. The
last volume is an exhaustive analyti
Altogether, this edition Is one of
high excellence, and is sold at a price
far below many inferior editions. An

A Christmas Present.
If any reader of The Commoner de
sires to send a Christmas present to a
democratic friend, nothing more valu
able or useful can be found than a
copy of the Jeffersonian Encyclopedia,
published by Funk & Wagnails Co.,
30 Lafayette Place, New York. It
contains a thousand pages, costs $7.50,
and is a library in Itself. Enclose
this paragraph with tho order.
Are flax.ms Misleading?
Perhaps no maxims are so mislead
ing to the judgment of thoso who Im
plicitly believe them as thoso which
assert what is absolutely true actual
ly and very often false metaphorically.
For instance, "Where there's smoke
there's fire" and "Straws show which
way the wind blows." If by smoke we
understand scandal and gossip, then
there is often a good deal of very nasty
smoke and no fire at all. Neither,
metaphorically speaking, do straws
show which way the wind blows, for
such are the cross-currents of char
acter that you can seldom judge of Is
general trend by a trivial action. A
man may save a penny and yet not be
mean, or throw away a pound without
being generous or even habitually ex
travagant. Take, for Instance, the commoa
Yorkshire saying, "When in doubt do
nought." How very seldom the prii
ciple herein contained can be appll-jd
with advantage. How many weak
wills, we should like to know, has
this pestilential little proverb contri
buted to paralyze? "All things happen
to those that wait" and so they do
wait, till the only thing which is sure
to happen to every one does happen,
and they die. Could they but ha re
realized that "he who hesitates is
lost" contains far more truth than Its
opposite they might have done some
thing In life. Not that this energef'.c
assertion of an occasional fact is by
any means a sure guide. Who is not
familiar with the man who never hesi
tates before any decision and nearly
always laments his precipitation, us
ually aloud? Who has not got tirad
of imploring such a one to make the
best of a bad job or of suppressing the
obvious comment of "We told you
so?" All the same, believers in a
motto which spurs them into foolish
action seem, to do better in the race of
life than thoso who rely upon oae
which preaches nothing but caution.
And hasty people generally seem to ar
rive at their goal, in however bad con
dition. London Spectator.
