THE JfECI.F.CTKU ORDER.
Th Lady Wns Annoyed, but Was
Prevailed I'pon to Overlook It.
From, the Chicago Tribune
Prosperity appeared In dress and
bearing. A woman halted several days
ago before a display of china and crys
tal in one of our display stores, and,
llxlng her eyes upon the slim sales
woman, who stood ready to serve her
as lur as human power could ro, said
with some asperity of rbne: "I've come
to inquire why an order I left here
two w eeks ago last Wednesday was not
attended to as promised. The girl at
this counter said she would have the
package sent out the next morning.
"Madam " began the saleswoman,
but the wronged woman hurried on:
"I thought this store could be de
pended upon I'm sure It toasts of be
ing reliable and so I took the girl at
her word. She had a listless air, and
I ought to have had more judgment
than to leava an Important matter
with her. It was a pickle Jar somewhat
like this one. only handsomer. 1 order
ed it sent "
"Madam " again began the sales
woman. "C. o. D." continued the complainant,
deaf to the interruption. "I wished it
particularly for dinner use the follow
ing day, and I waited for it till the
last moment. It did not come. It never
came. Such negligence I regard as un
pardonable. I would have reported, the
matter sooner, but "
"Madam." Ix-gnn the saleswoman for
the third time, while, oblivious for the
moment to the needs of the customers,
sister saleswomen on either hand lis
tened with deep interest.
"I have been out of the city for two
weeks" the wronsed voice have right
of way "and have Just returned. 1
don't see the girl who took the order.
She had dark eyes nnd fine color,
though, as I've naid, she seemed listless.
Where is she?"
"Madam she's dead," completed the
"Dead!" cried the complainant, seem
ingly amazed that a shop girl would
dare to die with an unfilled order upon
"What did she die of?"
"Typhoid," was the brief answer.
"It must have been a rapid case,"
observed the woman as if skeptical
of the diagnosis.
"It was walking typhoid," explained
the saleswoman. "That day you saw
her was her last In the store. She
couldn't get up the next morning, and
when the doctor came he said the fever
had been burning a good while. It was
too late to do anything for ser. She
didn't give up In time. You see she
couldn't. She was buried yesterday."
"Well, returned the mollified woman,
"that explains the matter. I'm sorry
of course the girl had to die. What Is
the price of these perfume buttles?"
WHY SHE WANTS PEACE.
England Connts the Cost of War in
Men nnd .Money.
From the 8t. James Gazette.
That noisy portion of the British
public which Is agitating for the use
of force against Turkey appears to
think that an Anclo-Turkish war
would be something like the bombard
ment of Alexandria, followed perhaps
hy a sort of Rhodesian expedition
that in a few weeks after we had blown
Constantinople to pieces the Turks
would come Hocking In to beg for
mercy, und that the Armenians would
thenceforth nourish forever, expressed
the view, some time ago, that he con
quest of Turkey would put us to the
pin of our collar, even ir Europe mere
ly looked on. Such llgures ns are avail
able quite bear out Lord Salisbury's
It must he remembered that the phy
sique of the Turks cannot be surpassed,
and that, although the army Is not or
ganized up to the standard of the great
powers, It is both numerous and brave.
Further, a war over the Armenian ques
tion would be no ordinary war. It
would Involve the extinction of Turkey
as a European power. The Turks know-
It, and no doubt they would tight to the
bitter end. Their troops, too, are bo ac
customed to continuous fighting with
robber bands and to protecting a diffi
cult frontier that they are always In
a state of preparedness to take the fleld
They are well armed with the Mauser
rifle (made In Germany): many of
their otlleers have been trained In Ger
many, and. indeed, when the German
emperor visited Constantinople he
warmly complimented the troops on
their whole turn-out. And If would
appear that, but for the chronic empti-
nes of the military chest, the Turkish
army would be well able to hold Its
very formidable foe. Tho actual figures
of the effective combatant force are,
irt round numbers:
Infantry, 5S3,utK; cavalry, 53.000: Ar
tillery, 50,000; engineers, 7,500; total,
They are rather short of horses, but
have about l,4u0 guns. The navy dues
It may be said that these are only
arithmetical soldiers, and that, besides,
Turkey could not carry on a war in
her bankrupt condition. Hut we have
the startling figures of the Russo-Tur-kish
war of 3ST7-TS to show what Tur
key can do. She was then bankrupt.
Her troops were never pnid. They were
not nenrlv so well armed as they are
now. Yet It was only after a very severe
struggle that Russia, with all her
hordes of fighting men, came out vic
torious. It is said that in Europe 600,000
Russians took part In the campaign,
and In Asia 250,000. Their losses were
ST.OOO deaths in Asia and 67,000 deaths
in Europe, of which latter number 17,000
were killed in battle. In addition to
those terrible losses there were inval
ided In Europe 35,000 and wounded in
Asia 11,000. Thus, there were killed,
wounded and invalided a greater num
ber than our whole home nrmy.
Now, it is probable that a less num
ber of British troops than Russian
would overcome the Turk? Suppose It
is; suppose that Englishmen are to
Russians as roast beef and Scotch
whisky are to black bread and vodhka,
and that one English soldier could lake
the place of two Rusisans. Still, how
could we transport 300,000 lighting men
to Turkey? In our largest war of the
present generation, the Kgyptlan cam
paign of 1SS2, less than 20,000 men were
engaged. That Is about the number we
keep on hand for foreign expeditions.
And, with the possibility of European
complications and unrest In Ireland,
it is about all we could sufely spare in
a war with Turkey. Take another Kus-so-Turkish
figure. At the beginning of
the siege of Plevna there were 6t;,000
draught horses employed dragging up
supplies. No doubt horses would be as
necessary In Knglish operations as In
Rusiun. Hut how could we transport
6(1.000 horses to Turkey and this would
only be a portion of the total required.
We would even have a dilllculty in pro
curing th-it number, not to mention the
transport of the animals In good health.
Our army has only about one-fourth
of it at home and in the colonies.
Nearly as many more are registered
and available at twenty-four hours' no
tice. Hut it is calculated that In the
whole kingdom there are no more than
70.000 horses suitable for war, and iN
most Insurmountable difliiultles ap
pear to lie In the way of getting at
these. Llentenant General Goodenouch
says It would take three weeks to dis
patch 10.000 horses by sea. During the
Kgyptian expedition the military au
thorities were se venteen weeks procur
ing 1,700 horses! That was before the
system of registration was commenced.
But after the 14,000 or 15,000 registered
horses available immeil lately were dis
patched the very same difficulties
would arise now as in 1SS2 over any
required beyond that number. For it is
only mature, muscular, corn-fed ani
mals that would be worth shipping.
But even If we could send out, say,
half a million or even a quarter of n
million of men and 100,000 horses, have
any of the agitators considered what
the cost would be? A national nrmy
fighting In a foreign country Is a Very
expensive body. The direct expenditure
would be enormous. Russia paid for
Its victory In 1878 no les than 190,
000.000. But we are about the most ev
penslve war makerB In the world, and
It Is doubtful If we could achieve our
purpose at his price. France, In her fil
ial struggle, lost 78 per family, which
according to Sir Robert Glffon, is ex
actly ten years' savings. In our case
the loss would most certainly fall
on our own Fhotilders. We could beat
Turkey, no doubt, but we could not
make it give us what It has not got.
In the last seventeen years Turkey has
reduced Its national debt, by composi
tion 85,000,0(10 No other proof
of Its poverty Is needed This
(100,000,000 expended on the war would
therefore be tacked on to our national
debt, undoine all the achievements of
sinking fund chancellors, and raising
the annual expenditure by 5,000.000!
This Is supposing we could borrow at
two and a half per cent., which is not
a certainty in the dangerous circum
stances In addition, there would be
I the Indirect losses. To transport
troops lon distances by sea It needs a
tonnage of about one ton per man and
five tuns per horse. Forty-seven ships,
of an average of 3,200 tons, carried our
1,000 troops and 6,000 horses to Egypt.
Multiply this by even ten. and consider
what a dislocation of our shipping
trade would be Involved! The draft of
our young and strong men would
greatly disturb the labor market. There
would always he the danger of a great
European conflict, which danger alone
would enhance the prices of provisions.
After the war there would be an im
mense number of widows and orphans,
w ho. In many cases, would become de
pendent on the public for support.
There would be pensions to the Inval
ided, and this would be no small item.
The pensions Involved hy the Franco
German war were estimated to repre
sent a capital of from five to seven mil
lions. Are the British public prepared to
make all this sacrifice for the Armen
ians? Is the workingman willing to
have his tea go up again to three shil
lings a pound, his tobacco perhaps to
sixpence an ounce, his four-ale to be
come six-ale, his quartern loaf to rise
to elghtpence? Probably ninety-nine
In a hundred British worklnjjmen
would rather see the whole Armenian
race In Jericho. And one thing is cer
tain. The Armenian workingman
would see the thirty-nine million phil
anthropic inhabitants ot these islands
at the bottom of the deepest Pacific be
fore he would spend 200,000.000 and
give up some fifty or sixty thousand of
his young men to death by war.

" I want to praise Hood's Sarsaparilla.
My health run down, and I had the grip.
After that, my heart and nervous system
were badly affected, so that I could not da
my own work. Our physician gave me
some help, but did not cure. I decided
to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. Boon I could
do all my own housework. I have taken
Hood's Pills with Hood's Sarsaparilla,
nd they have done me much good. I
will not be without them. I have taken 13
bottles of Hood's Sarsaparllla,and through
the blessing ot God, it has cured me.
I worked as hard as ever the past sum
mer, and I am thankful to say I am
well. Hood's Pills when taken with
Hood's Sarsaparilla help very much."
