TUli 1'OLITE AUSTKIANS. There had bceu a great many exag gerations about tho number of German troops quartered in Brussels. The one and constant danger with the German troops was their emptying all the cel lars they came across and getting out of hand. Tho German officers, needless to say, strutted about 'the conquered countrv.' Quite different was tne at titude of the Austrian officers, of whom there were a number. They wcro a model of politeness, never entering a cafe without saluting tbe people around most courteously. They had a marked weakness for tho renowned Brussels pastry shops reminding them of their Viennese ca.f'es.

It i» »tatod by an expert that tho value of X-ray photography has novor been rculisod so fully in Eugland ub dur ing the past six weeks, says tho 'Man- chester Uuardiun.' At tbe tiino of the Boer War the process was in its in fancy, and tho apparatus wus quite crude — merely a tubo suspended above the patient. The system now is to place powerful lumps beneath the deal table un which tbo patient is laid, and tne plate held above can bo easily ad justed. Verv tine results arc secured, and already many limbs and even lives have by this means bceu suved which in the hospitals of ten years ago would huvo been regarded as hopeless. It is not, perhaps, genc\illy known that X-ray photographs not only serve to locate foreign bodies aud to displuy fractures, but that morbid conditions of tho tlesh and of certain urgaus can also be dctocted.
