THE CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1011.
Capital Everywhere Exploiting
FEAR PERMANENT HIGH PRICES
North American Urban Rush Being
Duplicated In Old World, Even
Reaching India, China and Japan
and Sweeping Over South America'
A worldwide change In human con
ditious, political 11s well as economic,
Is Indicated by tlio lutest figures ns to
the growth of cities. The figures now
being gathered show the phenomenon
19 not confined to America, but Is
sweeping over Europe and Asia and
Africa nnd the Australian continent.
In the Polish district of Russia, for
example, there has been in the last
year an Increase of 1-1,000 workmen In
Moscow and 11.000 in Warsaw. This
means 100,000 more mouths to feed In
these two plares.
The problem Is of the greatest iin
porlaui'e to those who live in Ameri
can cities, for until the reaction, tho
"back to the soil" movement, comes,
perhaps twenty to twenty-five years
hence, this enormous growth of mu-nieipalltle.-j
Is taken by European econ
omists to mean permanently higher
prices for food.
It is tile opinion abroad that tho
United States will bo the source of
supplies, Inasmuch as the European
countries, which are more densely
populated, must continually cry to oth
er continents for food and the mate
rials for clothing. Thus the American !
planters and farmers will be able at
all times to find a first class foreign
market for cereals, cattle, cotton, wool
and other raw materials. This inevi
tably moans higher prices for those
articles in the American market under
tho inexorable law of supply and de-,
mand. This growth of cities at the
expense of rural communities has (
reached India, China and Japan, and
it Is sweeping over South Africa.
Capitalists Exploiting Cities.
Capital all over the world Is now
chiefly engaged In exploiting tho cities
against the country. It is calculated
that for every dollar invested in graz-1
ing or planting a thousand dollars
goes into municipal and industrial de
velopment, and so when sucli a tend
ency assumes, as it now has assumed,
worldwide proportions the outlook
for cheaper food nud clothing in Amor-'
lea and elsewhere is regarded ns re
A recent Russian loan bank report
shows the average number of dwellers ,
in a house lias increased to forty
eight in Vienna, fifty in Berlin and
fifty-two in Moscow and St. Peters
burg. In London tho average is only
eight to n house. Tho average yearly
rent of a two room flat is ?90 in Ber
lin nnd .$128 in Moscow and St. Pe
tersburg. Since 1SS2 the number of wnrJHiig
people in the German empire has In
creased from 17,000.000 to 2(1,800,000.
which Is an increase in percentage
from to 43.40. In tho snme period
the foreign workers in Germany have 1
Increased from 32.".000 to more than
1,250,000, of whom (520,000 are Aus
trians. Germany now has as many ,
foreigners as any other country in Eu-'
rope except France, which only slight
ly exceeds her. There are in Great i
Britain only about 300,000 foreigucrs. !
The Prussian city of Frankfort-on-the-Muin,
which now has 'a population
of 400,000. is growing as fast as nny '
of the western cities in America. More
than $l,BOO.O0O Is to bo spent In an
addition to the 510,000.000 railway sta-'
tlon, which handles COO trains a day.

Turks Improve Cities. J
The Young Turks are preparing their I
ancient country for western elvlllza-l
tlon nnd luxuries. The city of Aleppo,
with 200,000 inhabitants, is to under-
go a complete transformation. Gas,
electric light and water nro to be in-!

to grow, her accessions coming mostly
from Asia Minor and 'he Turkish sub
In Spain the growth of population
and industries In tho chief cities lias
been such that tho number of saving?
bank depositors has Incrensed from
ino.000 to fiOO.OPO In the last two years.
It Is scarcely realized In America that
the large fruit and vegetable growers
In Spain are among tho wealthiest
class In Europe. Their land sells for
as high as $3,000 an acre.
In Sweden the privnte fortunes of
the people now aggregate $297.000,
000. divided among 1.23S.OO0 estates.
In the city of Stockholm tho private
estates aggregate $!S2.000,000. an nv
erago of $1.2iri for each citizen. There
nro now l.noo.OOO savings bank deposi
tors In Sweden, and they have $204.
000,000 to their credit, an Increase of
$12,550,000 In the Inst year.
As bearing on the meat problem the
government count made on Oct. 10 last
shows that in Havarla. where the pop
ulation is largely Interested In German
cattle raising, there has been in one
year n decrease of 210.000. cattle and
07.000 sheep. Buvnrla. Saxony nnd
Alsace-Lorraine have authorized the
Importation of French. Danish and
other foreign meat.

-AWYER PKIZE PICKER OF
BEAUTIFUL ENGLISH WORDS
Melody, Radiance, Liberty and Adora
tion Prominent In List.
A prize offered by Grenville Klelscr
of Now York to pupils of the Public
Speaking Club of America for a list
of the twenty-five most beautiful
words in the English lnugungo was
won by .Tnmcs Shea, a lawyer.
Words were Judged according to
their beauty of sound and beauty of
meaning, and out of twenty-five sub
mitted by Shea twenty-one were ac
cepted. Grace, Justice nnd truth were
rejected. Tho harshness of g in grace
nnd j in justice disqualified them, nnd
truth was turned down because of its
metallic sound. The words accepted
as the most beautiful in the langungo
Sixty-five persons submitted lists.
Mr. Kleisor prepared a list nnd found
afterward that only one of his words
iiad been submitted In the other sixty

Au amusing feature of the contest
was that Shea made a speech accept

Eccentric Hungarian's Will Being Con
tested by Relatives.
Tho highly original will of a bache
lor. Emll von Blzony. Is published In
tho Iluugarlun papers. Mr. von Bl
zony, the brother of a well known Hun
garian deputy, was sixty-five, detested
women nnd was on bad terms with nil
his relatives. Although the owner of
a great deal of land, ho lived so fru
gally that he did not spend the tenth
part of his income.
In his will he bequeathed all his real
and personal property to his twelve
draft horses. As executors of the will
he named the Society For the Protec
tion of Animals at Budapest, stipu
lating that the interest on his property
should be devoted to the care of these
twelve animals and that upon the
death of one of them another aged
horse was to be taken In and cared
for so that tho number of twelve
might always be maintained.
Ilerr von Bizony's relatives natural
ly did not like the will, nnd tho deputy
will dispute It. Negotiations hnvc
been begun with the above mentioned
society, and 20.000 was offered it as
a compromise, but was refused. Tho
property is worth about $200,000.
HOLDS BABES IN WOOD LANDS
English Peer Declines to Sell Historio
Bit of Ground.
Lord Walsingham has joined the
great procession of peers who are sell
ing their estates as tho outgrowth of
the English government's agitation
against large landholding; but. though
ho Is parting with Aldwnrk Manor,
near York, he has decided to retain
Morton Hall, in Norfolk. This Is tho
scene of n crime which gave rise to
one of the most widely read legends
in the world "The Babes In the
The originals of "The Bnbos In tho
Wood" were the children of Sir Roger
do Grey, whose mother was tho owner
of Merton Hall. For years nfter the
wicked uncle had done the poor little
lvibes to death tho wood In which thev
perished and tho house in which they
had lived were haunted, so It was ev
erywhere believed, by the ghosts of
the babes walking hand in hand.
PORKERS ARE FASTIDIOUS.
Goats, on the Contrary, Eat Almost
An apology is due to the farmyard
pig. who has been grossly maligned in
regard to his food. Instead of being
ready to eat anything ho has Just
proved himself the most fastidious of
animals. Experiments recently cnrrled
on In France and Sweden show this
to be tho case.
In Sweden the record tells that out
of 575 plants tho goat cats 449 and
refuses 120. tho sheep, out of 494
plants, eats 3S7 and refuses 141; out
of 528 plants the cow eats 270 and re
fuses 218, out of 474 plants tho horse
eats 202 nnd refuses 212, and the pig,
out of 243 plants, eats only 72 and re
fuses tho other 171.
NEW DISH FOR GEOGRAPHERS
Noted Men Partake of Dasheen at
Just as Washington was distinguish
ed by tho serving of lco cream for
the first time in this country at a
White House reception in Dolly Madi
son's time, the city was recently hon
ored by tho first presentation in tho
United States of a new dish mado of
tho dasheen, a plant recently imported
from tho Pacific Islands.
This delicacy resembles tho potato,
being somewhat more piquant in fla
vor, and it formed a part of tho menu
at the banquet of the National Geo
graphic society, at which 600 members
and guests sat down.
Jamaica's Rainfall Is Peculiar.
The annual rainfall in Jamaica is

IN THE WORLD OF
Packy McFarland to Meet
Freddie Welch In England.
Packy McFarland, tho Chicago light
weight, is to take a trip across the big
pond to tackle Freddie Welch, holder
of the English title. Hugh Mcintosh,
the Australian promoter, who recently
opened a club In London, has landed
the match and wants to stage the bat
tle Feb. 9. Recently the pair met in
London, and the battle was called a
draw. Many exports at tho ringside
claimed that tho decision should have
been given to tho Americnn. Since
then the Chicago lightweight has been
anxious for a return match, and now
that It lias been granted McFarland is
more than pleased. As tho boys are
bitter enemies now the coming battle
should result In one of the best ever
held In London.
Career of Daly, Billiard Champion.
John W. Taly, the present holder of
the three cushion billiard champion
ship, is forty-two years old and was
born in L'tlca. N. Y. In 1893 he first
came into prominence, when he won
the professional pool clnmplonshlp at
the Chicago World's Fair.
In that tournnment nil tho leading
players except De Oro competed. In
1907 he finished second to narry CHno
nt St. Louis in th throe cushion cham
pionship tourney and later challenged
and defeated him. Tom Huoston
took the title nway from him, tho for
mer in turn losing it to De Oro. Daly
is playing so strong a game at present
that there are many who expect him
to hold the title for a long time.
Jockey Bell Clever Horse Pilot.
Jockey Tinker Bell, who Is a sensa
tion nt Jacksonville, Fin., was picked
up In Canuda by Hugh Penny last sea
son. Bell had been an exercise boy
for II. G. Bedwell, but never had re
ceived a chance to show his skill.
Penny, once a star Jockey himself,
coached the youngster carefully and
gradually developed htm. Today Bell
rides as well in long dlstnnco races as
he does in the sprints. Ho has good
hands, n cool head and knows how to
make sulky horses run. Above all, he
Is as quick as a flash at the post and
always takes the shortest route to the
wire. Bell will ride in Germany next
year If certain negotiations go through.
Montana May Have Boxing.
In nn effort to legalize boxing con
tests, which are now prohibited bj
the Montana statutes, tho executive
committee of tho city council of Butte,
under tho guidance of tho city attor
ney, is framing a bill for presentation
to tho legislature, which convenes in
February, to permit boxing under the
auspices of regularly conducted ath
Tho sentiment is overwhelmingly In
favor of boxing, and it is believed this
bill will go through, patterned nfter
the Pennsylvania law.

Pasturing Hos nnd Feeding (Jeis.
The hog will make a pound ol r id
on less grain than almost any live
stock and he t a great utilizer of
farm waste; nevertheless, no man
should nttempt to raise hogs -as a
businest even in a small way with
out adequate pasture.
Experiments from Mississippi to
Michigan are note.l in pasturing and
feeding, including the use of alfalfa,

is stated that it is best to have the
water content of the ration below
tho daily requirement, and then let
the animal have access to water at
will, or supply It regularly.
If the food is excessively sloppy,
the pig is compelled to consume un
usually large quantities of the
ration In order to satisfy the body
needs. This distends the stomach,
unbalances the whole digestive sys
tem and makes a paunchy, ill form

time yields a ery low per cent of
Breaking Rati Stall Pullers.
A correspondent furnishes tha
Prairie Farmer with another
plan for breaking horses that are
inclined to pull and break their hal.
ter when fastened in the stall. Two
straps are lightly attached to the
two forolegs just above the knees.
These are attached by a rope which
passes throush a ring in the stall.
If a horse endeavors to go back
suddenly he flnda that the harder
uo pulls tho greater the tendency to
draw hlB forelegs from under him.
A few attempts by eve'n the worst
halter puller and he will be broken
of his vicious habit.

put at $24.70.

Blouses For Every Day.
The satin blouse has taken the place

several seasons ago. The prevailing
style of making these blouses on peas

The satin blotiae should always have
