VILLA WAS A BAD BET
WHEN the Washington Administration
staked Villa after forcing Huerta out of
Mexico It showed bad Judgment. Villa has
never for a moment Justified the confidence
put In him. The experts wh. lescrlbed him
as one of the greatest fighters since Na
poleon have classified themselves, and their
services will not again be In demand when it
Is necessary to appraise Mexican soldiers or
statesmen. Villa has been defeated time
after time In the past year, and he has at

Mexico he will make trouble, but he has

lowed to prescribe for the sick who has not
rseelved the best instruction obtainable In
the fundamentals of- the healing art.
3oetor MoAUIster might have gone further
and have said that the time must come when
there Is a distinction between physicians and
surgeons and when no man who has received
merely a general medical education, without
special instruction, in surgery, shall be per
mitted to perform a major operation. There
are Men in the United States no more fitted
than one of the beef trust's butchers to

A VALUABLE PUBLIC SERVANT
ANTHONY COMSTOCK, who is dead at 71,
. after a life Bpent In protecting tho public
morals, won notoriety by his mistakes. His
substantial reputation for honest, conscien
tious and effective, work was won by deeds of
which the public know little. The Indecent
and obscure publications of one kind or an
other, the suppression of which ho secured,
were not advertised by any proclamations
from his office. He had them seized by th
Government and the rest was silence. If his
record could be examined It would be found
that ho did ten wlso things for every foolish
one. If his successor can do half so well ho
may consider himself fortunate.
ACCIDENTS ARE ONLY ACCIDENTS
KTOTWITHSTANDING all the assumptions
JJN to tho contrary, man is neither omnis
cient nor omnipotent. The inevitable demand
after every accident that the persons re
sponsible shall be punished to the full extent
of the law Is the form In which the belief In
man's omniscience usually finds expression.
The public that Is, you and your neighbor
and the man who lives next door to your
neighbor and so on down the street Is un
willing to admit that an accident can happen.
They forget that an accident Is something
that happens because it was unforeseen and
unexpected. By its very nature It cannot be

New York, yesterday morning, and that it
will engulf scores of people and kill several,
and do not take precautions to prevent It,
the thing that happens Is not an accident,
but a crime. It loses all the essentials of
the unforeseen and the unexpected without
whloh there are no accidents.
Yet bo Insistent Is the Vanity of man In the
mass that three or four different investiga
tions are making Into the Seventh avenue
disaster for the purpose of fixing responsi
bility, punishing some one, and satisfying the
demand for a victim. It Is forgotten that tho
road over which the world advances is paved
with disaster. Progress is made because we
learn by the unexpected and unforeseen
wrecks that destroy our castles, and then
provide against a repetition of the samo
calamity. When the span of a cantilever
bridge under construction across the Bt. Law

the engineers discovered that their estimates
of the proper weight of such supports were

been learned, and engineers now err on the
side of safety when they err at all. It 1h

will ever learn that accidents are accident!

Professor Cnrnvoy na Ho Takes Up
His Work in Hia Adopted
Homelnnd Some Personal
Trnits of an Optimist
By CHARLES VINTON WATERS
THE nverngo optimist Is ono who has no
particular reason for being anything else.
It Is only tho man who can bear up bravely
and smile cheerfully under nn accumulation
of misfortunes that deserves the name.
Under any definition,
however, Dr. Albert
J. Carnvoy, a Bel
gian scholar, who
has come to tho Uni
versity of Pennsyl
vania as research
professor In Sanskrit
and Creole In tho
Graduato School, can
Justly lny claim to
tho possession of truo
optimism. That he
does not do so makes
his title all tho moro
In Doctor Carn
voy's cose, to tho
misfortune of losing nearly all his worldly
posses-dons, of seeing his homo destroyed
nnd tho well-defined and apparently bright
prospects In his chosen career snuffed out,
has been added the greater trial of expatria
tion. Many of his fellow countrymon havo
been compellod to enduro similar tribula
tions In tho last year, but It Is doubtful If
any of them has bcon ablo to show a moro
cheerful philosophy than radiates from this
exile from his war-stricken land.
Fourteen months ngo Doctor Carnvoy was
peacefully engaged In as peaceful an occupa
tion ns can well bo Imagined. As a pro
fessor of ancient languages In Louvaln Uni
versity, tho oldest as well ns tho largest of
Belgium's educational Institutions, ho had
found what to him was an Ideal vocation.
Years of preparation nnd application at
Louvaln, at Cnmbrldgo University and In
Berlin had fitted him for his congonlal task,
nnd ho lookod forward with assurance to a
futuro that would be useful, pleasant and
profitable Tho coming of the Germans
changed everything. Compolled to fleo from
his home, at first ho found a haven of
refuge In that tamo Cambrldgo whero,
years before, he had been a student. But
It was not for long. Within six monthi tho
little group of Belgian university men who
had gathered there with the laudable pur
poso of continuing their studies was broken
up. King Albort's call for soldiers took so
many of the physically fit to1 the front that
only a handful was left. Besides, the great
English university Itself had fallen upon evil
days, and In the absence of so many stu
dents, gone away to the wars, It could
hardly find Bufilclent work for Its own In
structors. Six months ago Doctor Carnvoy came to
this country. An Invitation from Columbia
University to deliver a course of lectures,
while It held out no promise of permanent
employment, was yet too good under the
circumstances to be refused. With only a
small part of the scholastic year remaining,
the newcomer In the field of American edu
cation had email opportunity to prove his
mettle. Yet his work was of so high an
order that It attracted attention both In and
out of the New York school, and finally pro
cured for him tho offer of a chair at Phila
delphia's great university.
Fond of Bicycling
Doctor Carnvoy Is still on tho sunny side
of BO. Well abovo the average height, he
gives the Impression that he would have
been a good athlete had he followed the
bent of the average American student of
the present day.
"Athletics In the form whloh the Amer
ican and English youth have known It for
so many years had little place In the re
gard of the Belgian students of my day,"
explalnod Doctor Carnvoy. "Their leisure
was devoted to play, not to sport as the
American student sees It. Of late years
there has been a decided change, and now
Belgian university boys Indulge In many of
the time-honored sports of England and this
"At least, they did," he added, with a
smile that had more than a suggestion of
personal grief back of it. "Now there is lit
tle or no exercise among the youth of my
country eovo the exercise of arms. In fact,
for the time thero are no university boys and
no universities. Education In Belgium to
day Is confined to the elementary and sec
Tho slight stoop of Doctor Carnvoy's
shoulders, not unusual with tall men of mid
dle age, and In his case suggesting scholarly
habits carried almost to an excess, does not
mean that he is not an out-of-doors man.
On the contrary, be takes every opportunity
to get out Into the country, either for long
walks or for bicycling trips.
"I cannot understand," he exclaimed, "why
Americans should have given up cycling, as
apparently they have. There Is no other
means, certainly, of enjoying the beauties of
the country that can compare with It, unless
It be walking. And Americans do not seem
to walk much, e.ther, I find. They prefer
the swift-moving automobile, which permits
one to see only a very little and not to ap
predate even that little."
Another thing that" takes Doctor Carnvoy
outdoors whenever the chance presents Is
his admitted hobby botanizing. "in an
amateur way only," he hastened to' explain.
"I am only an amateur, but I find much
that delights me In the floral wealth oflthl
country, bo much that la new and strange.
It does not seem as if Americans half ap
preciate the bounty that has been bestowed
upon them. Look at the oak, for example.
America has, I believe, some It varieties,
while Belgium must he content with only
Doctor Camvoy's work at the University
of Pennsylvania will be devoted largely o
teaching In the Graduate School; but he will
also come In touch to some extent with the
undergraduates, concerning whom he appar
ently has no Mttle curiosity. "I like their
looks," ho said, "especially their frank, hon
est eyes; but I have been told that they are
not Inclined to hard work unless they think
it absolutely necessary. The graduate stu

A DEATH GRAPPLE IN THE NORTH SEA
Today Is the Anniversary of the Famous Engagement of the
Serapis and the Bon Homme Richard A Famous Reply.
Jones an American to the Last
THE Great War has broken many records,
but It hasn't yet destroyed the distinction
of tho famous battle of the Serapis and tho
Bon Homme Richard as the bloodiest naval
engagement of modern times. Today Is the
anniversary of that
conflict, a battle of tho
good old days when
ships were lashed to
gether and tho sailors
fought hand to hand.
Upon the outbreak of
tho Revolution, Jones,
a Virginian, born In
Scotland, offered his
services to the Conti
nental Congress. At
the age of thirty he
was placed In com
mand of the Ranger,
the first naval vessel
on which the Stars and
Stripes were hoisted.
Tho battle which gave him his lasting fame
occurred on September 23, 1779. Jones for
two years had been hovering about the coasts
of England and Scotland, destroying shipping
and capturing vessels. In August of ...j he
had sailed from France with a squadron of
five vessels, three of them American and two
French. 9ft Flomborough Head he fell In
with a fleet of 41 British merchantmen, con
voyed by the Serapis and the Countess of
Scarborough. The battle that followed, Just
as the sun went down, was the battle of
the Berapls and the Richard.
Nightfall and Battle
It was dusk when the Bon "Uu.nme Richard
came close to the Serapis. The Pallas was
Balling for the Countess of Scarborough, but
tho otb,er ships of the American squadron
had basely deserted their commander. In but
one consideration was the Richard superior
to the Serapis, and that was In the person
ality of the American commander.
The breeze was bo light that the two ves
sels approached each other slowly. When
almost within pistol shot and coming to
gether, bow to bow, tho captain of the
Berapls balled the Richard.
"What ship Is that7" he called through his
Paul Jones, In order to gain time, called
"What Is It you snyT I can't understand."
"What ship Is that? Answer Immediately
or I shall fire Into you," was the English re
ply. Simultaneously from both vessels a hroad
sldo roared out. The flash glared over the
waters and showed the gunners of both ships,
stripped to the waist and at their guns. That
very first fire was almost fatal for the Bon
Homme Richard, Tje battle was on. The
decks already flowed with blood.
Just as the Richard's rigging was shot
away so that It was helpless, the bowsprit
of the Berapls thrust across the stern of the
Richard and struok the mlzien mast. Paul
Jones saw his opportunity and made the
two ships fast with grappling Irons. That
tied them together, side by side, and miti
gated to some extent the British superiority
In heavy guns.
The two ships now drifted along, looked
in a deadly embrace. The RIoharl began to
leak and Paul Jones soon saw that be must
be defeated unless he struck an effective
blow. He sent a party of 20 soldiers Into
the crosstrees of his ship and ordered them
to clear the enemy's decks by a hot musket
ITadn't Began to Fight
All this time there was not a moment's
oessatlon of the cannonade. Huge gaps
wore opened in the tides of eaoh ship. The
Rlohard was leaking so badly that the ship's
carpenter, thinking all was lost, rushed to
the fighting decks and spread the alarm.
The gun crews rushed for the small boats
and would haye left the ship had not Com
modore Jones and Lieutenant Dale met them
with cocked pistols and ordered them back
to fighting. The prisoners broke loose la the
hold and threatened to swarm out and over
power the Americans. Guards soon mastered
them and put them to work on the pumps.
Behind the dense olouds of smoke that
blotted everything from view Commodore
Jones now organized a bearding party ef
100 men. He armed them With cutlasses
and pistols. With shout and cry they
swarmed over the gunwales of the Serapis
and onto its bloody dscks.
Although they fought fiercely the boarasw
were driven b-wslt. Half of their number
and as many Bngllshmen were killed w
wounded in the fray. As they cam lcaplm
back to the Richard's decks, the two cap.

DRY AND NONE COMFORTABLE
"No! I have not yet begun to flght," was
tho heroic reply of Paul Jones.
By 10 o'clock flames wero bursting forth
from both ships In many places. Lieutenant
Dale went to Commodore Jones and asked
permission to board the Serapis again. The
permission was granted.
Followed by Midshipman Mayrant and a
party of sailors ho leaped to the British
decks. An English sailor thrust a boarding
pike Into tho midshipman's hip. Tho sailor
was killed with a pistol. Tho Americans
swept everyone from the main deck, and
Lieutenant Dale rushed to the quarter deck
whero Captain Pearson stood alone.
Captain Pearson, tho linage of despair,
now gavo up all hope and struck his colors
with his own hand.
Jones was the hero of Europe and America.
The King of France decorated him with the
cross of tho Order of Military Merit. The
American Congress gave him a gold medal
and proposed to create for him the rank of
rear admiral. It Is certain that Jones
aspired to that honor, which was never
granted, and some have said that Jones con
sidered himself ungratefully treated by the
new nation In the West and that ho left.lt
In disgust Catherine n of Russia offered
him a command with tho rank of rear ad
mtral nnd Jones rendered valuable service
In the war against the Turks. Probably
the real reason of his acceptance of tho com
mission was his love of adventure and naval
life. Though ho never returned to America
after 1787, he was emphatic In his state
ments that he would never renounce his
American citizenship. In 1792 he was ap
pointed United States Consul nt Algiers, but
died In Paris before his commission arrived.
So It Is quite evident that he remained an
American to the last.
THE BALKAN AMERICA
Bulgaria Seems More Like a Republic
Than n Kingdom
Modern Bulgaria Is only a couple of genera
tions old, and though all this part of the world
has been Invaded and relnvoded, and fought
over since the beginning of things, the little
kingdom (It seems more like a republic) has
the air of a new country.
The aristocracy had been wiped out long be
fore Bulgaria got her autonomy In 1878, and
unlike Rumania, where the greater portion of
the land Is In the hands of large proprietors,
Bulgaria Is a country of small farmers, of
shepherds, peasants, each with his little piece
of land. The men who now direct Its fortunes
are the sons and grandsons of ver,y simple
people. Possibly It Is because we Americans
are also a new jieople, with still some of the
prejudices of pioneers, that we are likely to
feel something In common with the people of
what has been called the "peasant State." .Cer
tain It Is that the Bulgarians seem the most
American" of th,e Balkan peoples, the most
"Western" of these Near Easterners,
Snow-capped mountains rise Just behind
Folia, and the brown hills thereabout, like the
rolling plateaus along the shoulders of which
the train crawls on the way down from Ruma
nia, are speckled with sheep. Sometimes even
In Sofia you will meet a shepherd patiently
urging his little Jlock up a modern concrete
Btdewalk and stopping now and then for some
passer-by to pick up a lamb, "heft" It. and

should take it home for dinner.
