The agitation for e n f rl a nchisement and independence which has taken ; . '. - such firm root in the United States and Europe has caused not simply a ripple 'but a turbulent whirlwind in. the Turk's hitherto submissive household.-Iis even said that the men are siding with the women, and enfranchisement , seems to be as anxiously demanded by them as it is by their wives. In this connection, Richard Davey, in an article on the "Present Condition of Women in Turkey," presents some interesting phases on the life of Turkish women of "A Turkish lady, who speaks English perfectly and who is, besides, an excellent musician, recently said that her condijtion and that of other women of her race was daily becoming more intolerable. 'Is it not terrible to think, she said, 'that I, who am so passionately fond of music and whom my husband woulc. only be too happy. to please in everything, should be forbidden at the risk of my life to go to a theater or concert; that I am forever forbidden to go outside of the Ottoman Empire and that any , interchange of ideas is an im Dossibility to me with the women among whom I am condemned to pass my life? The more education a Mussulman woman acquires the more unendurable her fate becomes, and it will grow daily worse, until the day upon which we shall ob- tain our complete emancipation '"But believe me when say that the day is not far distant wh6n my dream will be realized. Turkish women are very intelligent in fact, more so than their husbands and a spirjit is growing up among us which is getting stronger daily. Only a short time ago the Sultan ordered us to wear a veil which is t to-da- y. . 4 j out of fashion the yashmak, during Ramadan. We obeyed him for three days, but on the foiurth day all the women of Constantinople without a single exception refused to wear the yashmak, and since then His Majesty "has desisted in interfering in any de tails of our toilets. " 'It Is noteworthy that since the Turkish men have mingled so freely with Europeans the desire for a new regime has grown steadily. It touches their vanity that they are forbidden to to-da- y, . show off their wives, who, it is are possessed! of the most beautiful eyes and are owhers of more precious jewelry than any of the most fashionable women of th 3 diplomatic corps. One of the ridiculous laws of the land is that which forbids a husband to go Into a shop witfr his wife om his arm, but obliges him to walk twelve steps behind her.' " K There! Is a law which forbids a Turkwoman to divorce herself without ish her husband's consent. But the authorities affirm that this law does not prevent divorces from being even more frequent In Turkey than in the United States.-.:"- : Perhaps the reason why the mer of Turkey are not relucaht that their wives should complain of the matrimonial rulr laid down for ithem by thel Prophet Is asily explained by the fact that no matter how agreeable the possession of four legitimate wives may be, they impose cares 'and expenses on the husband which are often beyond his means of gratification. Tile Koran exacts that the husband shall treat his four wives with absolute equality; and the Turkish husband is obliged to offer vto all his wives the presents which one among them has demanded. ;' Again, he cannot obtain a divorce without giying back to the repudiated wife her dot to the last piastre, and is not at liberty to deduct the money which the maintenance of the harem and an enormous number of slaves and servants has cost him. So that It is quite apparent why the Mahometan husbands tnemselves are willing to be deposed of their rights of polygamy and will do all they can to secure the eman cipation of their women.

John Burroughs, the essayist and naturalist, says that the gojlden orioles bother him a great deal. These birds are regular topers in their love for grape juice. They stick their beaks into the grapes, suck up the juice, and three or four birds are able to ruin several tons of grapes In a short time. As seventeen of Mr. Burroughs' twenty acres are devoted to grape culture, this is a serious matter. : , n ' e The bookings of passengers between New York and London at the present time show an increase of 50 per cent compared with. those of the same period a yar ago. e sure-refug- , the-ignorance- s - ne-ai- - ' 1 j ' h. , d, n. v . - ey bt-deluge- d ; , : ; . ; ; . . ; , . . .
