WORDS THAT ABE ACCURSED
The Yezi lees, a peculiar Turkish
sect, are perhaps the only people in
the world who consider certain letters,
••words and phrases as being cursed and
the person who pronounces them a
worthy subject for -immediate destrue
They attach no value to human life,
and to these ordinary dangers are add
el those arising from the embarrsss
i ing etiquette of conversational inter
course with them, for if any one ina 1-
ventently speaks the word "devil,"
I "Satan" or anything with the same
meaning he commits a mortal offense,
land to cut off his head is a God pleas-
I ing act. a sacred duty of the YezUee.
the fulfillment of which will insure
. him a place in paradise.
In a like manner several letters are
wholly banished from their language,
chiefly those which contain the sound
|of "shun." The Arabian word "nal
iet." "Thou are damned," is also ex
punge I because it is believed by the
Yezidees to have been the word uttered
jby God when the fallen angels were
thrown into hell. '
These and similar words and phrases
are set aside and combinations which
do not belong to any language used
; instead.—London Spectator.

RE-EXPORT BUSINESS POOR
U. S. Does Little Compared With
Britain, Germany and France
By Associated Press.
Washington, March 22. —The Unit
| ed States does comparatively little re
export business compared to the other
' great commercial nations —Oreat Brit
| ain, Germany and France —according
! to a statement to-day by the Depart
; ment of Commerce.
For many years the total of foreign t
! merchandise brought into the United j
I States and sold again to foreign buy- !
ers has ranged between $35,000,000
and $43,000,000 annually in value. ,
| During the fiscal vear of i 914 the to
tal was $35,000,0*00.
! Great Britain's re«exp'ort business)
during the last calendar vear totaled |
$465,000,000 against $42,500,000
| handled through the United States in
I the same period. The BritMi excess of
j domestic exports over American fig
' ures, however, wae only one per cent,
j The great difference in re-exporta

! countries whose business is handled
j through the parent country. Thus Ger

ANCIENT ' WIRELESS"
An Old Roman Carrier Pigeon Station
Still Stands in Prance
A few miles north of 'Marseilles and
within easy walk art the tram to Aix
en-Provenve lies a typical Provencal
village that tourists usually miss. It
was founded by the Romans during
their occupation of the south of France
and is built in accordance with the cus
toms »f that time. The houses appear
to be perched on top of each other,
"but on closer inspection are found to be
built on ledges on a hillside.
This hill the most interesting fea
ture of the place. What appears as a
solitary crag is in reality a castle, the
rooms, fortifications, ctV., toeing cut
out of the solid rock and forming a
fortress practically impregnable in
those days. At the side of the castle
is a round tower, about forty feet in
height and seven feet in diameter.
The interior of this tower acted as
the "wireless station" in Roman times.
The interior consisted of a series of
pigeon lofts, from which the birds,
bearing messages, were sent direct to
The whole of the interior was con
structed of a very hard cement, which,
with the wear of ages, is now slowly
decaying, and only one perfect "loft"
now remains. There was accommodation
for about 250 pairs of birds, together
with an abundant water and grain sup
ply, the attendants toeing quartered in
the castle.—"Wide World Magazine.
