ProdreM .Northward It Rathej- ky and Painful atagM.' . I "Win someonfe Wndly . tell jne," spoke tbe man fron] behind ft newspaper, "why they are always spe^dng about a dash for the poft>? My Impression of these Polar expeditions, galn^-from reading; 1H that they proceed by painful And tedious stages, creeplns ftidag over vast extianses of Ice and snow, cl.'nibing wearily ovpi the ice hills and huniniockH and stop- pins to bridge yawning crevasses and pitfalls. Tlie word 'dash' In my mind is always associated with a sharp, quick run to n certain point, and y^t ve are told that sometimes Polar explorers manage to make only a milf or two a day and that by the hardest work. How can any one call progress that often In^ts several months a 'dash?"Wn read that Wellman is golnc to make a 'dash' for the pole by mea&B of a balloon. We are told that Peary is going to make a dash tor the pole by means of ice xlcdgos drawn by Es­ quimau dogs. And now 1 see by the l>ap«r here that another explorer la going to mako a 'dash' for the pole in sledges drawn by Polar bears. Now my impressions or Polar bears are that they nrf slow and sluggish in movement. How is one going to mako a 'dash' with such ungainly creatures?" RAILWAYS BUILT FOR WAR. Russia Has Recently Completed Last Strategic Line. Russia has at length completed the great steel and concrete bridge across the Oxus at Karkl. on which It has been busy over since the • autumn of 1905. This bridge is the last and principal link in the new startegic railway which is being built between the great city of Samarkand, in Russian Turkestan, iind the little village of Bosaga, on the .\fghan fiontler, and as soon as the rails are laid, which" will be in a |few months' time, the czar will be able, should he so wish, to mass.easily a million of men upon the borders of this debatable territory. \:i other of these strateKic railways also been recently coniploted r:i>-.: r..

Turkish Labor Too Cheap. An American nuniiifacturcr of laundry machinery tried to introduce it Into Smyrna, Turkey, but Consul Ernest L. Harris has reported that so long as the price of labor in that Turkish city remains so low the practice will rjntlnue of doing the washing at hoitoe, and there will be no opportunity for the sale of laundry machinery. Of late years in Smyrna It has become the practice, be says, to a certain extent to send the washed llne^ to public laundries for ironing and; starching, bur even this Is ceac lng.| Specifications were drawn up for the establishment of a laundry after the American plan, and careful consideration was given to the price "of coa] and labor.

VISITING CARDS FOR KINGS. Those of the German Kaiser Are the Most Imposing. The German emperor believes in being sul^ciently represented, even on a viatting card. No ordinary sised piece' of JMuiteboard will sulDce him, for W'lllliim's cards measure no leas than six) Inches In length and four in widths On the upper line is the single wotd "Wllhelm," and below are the . words "Deutacher Kaiser" and "Konlg von Preussen." The words are printed In large, fat, German script letters. Qf course, the emperor does not carry these Imposing sheeU of pasteboatxl himself: they are conflded to his chasseur, or body servant, whc follows^ him. The otlier sovereigns of Europe are content with more modest vialtlng card*, with the words upon them in Latin script. Among the simplest In size and appearance are those of the emperor of Austria and the prince of Wales. The prince has two sets of cards, obe for use abroad and the other for; England. The English one bears the "words "Tbe ^nce of Wales." the other the French equivalent, "Prlice de Gales." San Fraocisco,: Cal. US., A. New I York, N.
