Generally it was the name of a man. In modern times the supremacy of the individual has faded: But this complexity has brought its own new alarms; Eu- rope has become a chessboard rather than a tourney; it is a question no longer of king and knight, and bishop one by one, but of all of them coIn- bined into a gambit.
Instead of the terrible person we are faced by the alarming problem. And of them all, the oldest, the most complex, the most dangerous, the ever urgent, is the Eastern Question. What Attila and Alva and Buonaparte were in their days, this impersonal matter is to-day.
It is the nightmare of em- perors and the despair of statesmen. There is not a diplomatist in Europe whose digestion cannot be spoiled by whispering to him a fresh rumor con- cerning it across the dinner-table.

Slowly the tide has returned as it caine. In- trepid Hungary, who stopped its flow, first turned it back. Servia revolted and became free, Greece shook off the turbaned destroyers of her people and her monuments.He served as director of the New York Zoological Park, founded the American Bison Society, and authored several books that promoted his ideas regarding wildlife protection, including Our Vanishing Wildlife ().
