-Tho world's gonorosity seems to be only lor those who aro in tho world of telegraph wiros and railroad linos. Tho magnificant oharity showered upon Chicago shows how great that generositv is, and the pitiful story of the Persian plague shows that ono natioa synipathiztis with another only when thoy are linked togethor by corumon interest. Porsia is emphatically outsido the chanucd circle, and the Persians aro dying at tho rate of three thougand a day, with scarccly a hand lifted to succor them. If they wcro in Europe, Europe would long since have oheoked tho lamino that produced tho plaguo. ïhero is a glamour about Asia that inakcs everything thore seem unroal, so that the ghastly picture that reach us nowan then of women and children fighting for aiorsels of food and dropping dead from disease along the roadside seem but a fearfui fiction instead of a, fearful fact.
