it is not enoiigii to see it li'e; n.- I

its eeeiit jia-t. A nation is ;:i
eternal invalid; there is not om
which is not ill, which has not mhiii

nature. l'.ut t! at which it is huh
important of all to know is, what i.
;he c-ure of its malady. One musi
decide whether the disease is incliuei.
to increase or whether, on the on-1
trary, it is on the way to a cure.
lo not hoe to kiioxv this until you
yoiirseli have I'ouinared yc.ter.iay
and today. For this history is iu--lispelisible,
:iud especially the po-j
litieal history of the present century.
In my opinion itisahnost impos.-iible
to understand a modern country il
one is not acquainted with itspoliti
cal history lir ii period ol the past
eighty years; ami I would like to
"sav that it is regrettable that one
should visit a country before he litis
made such a study. The English
are sometimes great .travelers and
sometimes very sedentary. 1 havi
known some who were admirably
well acquainted witli France, am.
that almost without having seen it,
an.! others who had traveled it re
peatwllv and knew almost nothing
aliut it. The former were not al
ways intellectually superior to the
latter, but they had acquired the
habit when they read their news
papers of never passing over any
thing which concerned Franco with
out pausing, without meditating iii
011 it, and especially without finding
out what the French themselves
thought aliotit it. This is the proper
manner of judging things. One
cannot understand, ior example, the
movement which is aliout to trust
Xorway out of her union with Swe
den if he does not study this move
ment lrom its origin and if he know s
nothing otthe phases through which
it luw passed since the tiwitdinli
Xorwcgiau kingdom was constituted.
For my juirt, 1 have searched the
point where I always try to get out-
. side of myself, in a way, when I
have to judge an international ques
tion, I say to myself: "What would
1 think alxmt Cecil Rhodes if I were
im Englishman? What would be my
opinion on India if I were a Russian?

i II1KSSI VIINKSS :About the be-;
ginning of tin: Kith century Spain, j
posse.-seil ot a religious lury adroitly
mingled with greed, expelled the
Jews and .Moors and confiscated their
property. It thus inflicted as severe
a national injury to itself as France
did later when it drove out the Hu
guenots; lor it stripped itself of its
noft farmers and mechanics. In
KiOD, 1 believe, it gave agriculture
a further fatal blow by expelling the
Christianized Moors. As a conse
quence the very basis of national
prosperity is remarkably undevelop
ed in Spain. The crudest imple
ments are still in use, and great re
gions that the Moors had rendered
productive, fell back to wilderness.
Similar short-sightedness character
ized her abroad. When l'izarro
landed in Peru, the strip ol hind
lifty and more miles wide, stretching
from the ocean front to the foot
hills ol the Andes, supported apros
jicrous jMipulution of many hun
dreds of thousands. The 'patient
Peruvians had, by vast irrigation
works, made this sandy desert blos
som like the rose. In some cases
they had constructed aqueducts
hundreds of miles long, and even
pierced mountains in order that this
region might be watered. The desert
is once more triunipliant. The con
querors seeking and esteeming those
things only that.could be gained by
the sword, neglected the real essen
tials of prosperity, and to this day
the evil results are felt, Mexice
was a similar victim. The- strange
