Heart's Chicago American, ot a recent issue contained the following editorial, wliich has created so little comment on the part of tbe press generally because of the fact that it shows
a spirit of fairness which does not always characterize the American's editorials.    It says:
"It would be a misfortune to the
country if the big papers in the big
cities should interfere seriously with
the publication of the valuable weekly newspapers. Decidedly it is on
these the welfare of the country very
largely depends. The metropolitan
daily cannot possibly know the needs
of the various localities and small cities. Only the local newspapers can
protect local needs and influence local
opinion, Of course we arc glad to
have as many people as possible read
the Chicago American in the big cities and in the little cities. But we
hope that in every small town and in
c\"ery village there will be enough
intelligent and public spirit on the part
of the inhabitants to support earnestly and enthusiastically the local weekly paper, giving encouraging approbation and a good living lo the local editor, who alone can represent and defend justice and public spy-it among
bis neighbors. That man is ttnfor-
ttinale who cannot afford to take two
newspapers at today's prices. He who
can only one paper, in our opinion,
should display his sense of duty to his
'locality by taking the local newspaper."

tlon and went to Mary's dnnce. but his
going mnde for blm nn enemy of tho
most powerful noblomnn in tbe realm,
and this wns the way of lt:
These pnrtlcs of Mary's bnd been going ou once or twice n week during tbo
entire winter and spring, aud usually
Included -the Bnme persons. It was a
sort of coterie, whose members wore
more or less congenial and most of tbem
very Jealous of Interlopers. Strnngo
as It mny seem, uninvited persons often nttempted to forco themselves la,
and all sorts of schemes and maneuvers wero adopted to gain admission.
To preveut this two guardsmen with
linlberds were stationed nt tbo door.
Modesty, I might say, neither thrives
nor IS useful at court
Wfien Brandon presented himself nt
the door, his entrance wns burred, but
he quickly pushed aside the linlberds
nnd .entered. The Duke of Buckingham, a proud, self Important Individual, Was standing near tbe door and
euw lt all. Now, Buckingham waa
one of those unfortunate persons who
never lose an opportunity to make a
mistake, and, being anxious to display
his Seal on behalf of the princess, stepped >np to prevent Brandon's entrance.
"Sir, you will hove to move out of
this,*' bo said pompously. "You are
not at a Jousting bout Yon have made
o mistake nnd have come to the wrong
"My lord of Buckingham ls pleased
to mnke ratfier more of nu ass of himself than usual this evening," replied
Brandon, with a smile, as he started
across tbo room to Mnry, whose cyo
be bad caught. She had seen nr 1 henrd
lt all, but Instead of coming to bis relief stood there laughing to herself.
At this Buckingham grew furious and
rnn nround ahend ofjirandon, vuliant-
ly drawing his sword.
"Now, by heaven, fellow, make but another step, and I will run you tlirough!"
he said.
I snw lt nil, but could hardly realize
whnt wns going on. It came so quickly
nnd wns over bo soon. Like n flash
Brandon's sword was out of Its sheath
nnd Bucklnghnm's blade was flying toward tbo celling. Brandon's sword
wns sheathed ngnin so quickly thnt ono
could bnrdly believe It bnd been out
at all, and, picking up Buckingham's,
be snld with n half smothered laugh,
"My lord bns dropped bis sword."
He then broke Its point with bis heel
ngninst the hnrd floor, saying, "I will
dull tbo point lest my lord, being iiniic-
customed to Its use, wound himself."
Tills brought penis of laughter from
everybody, Including the king. Mary
laughed also, but as Brnndon wns
bunding Buckingham bis blado, camo
np and demanded:
"My lord, Is this tbe wny you tnke lt
upon yourself to receive my guests?
Who Appointed you. let me nsk, to
gunrd my door? Wo shall have to omit
your nnme from our next list unless
you tnke n few lessons In good mnn-
ners." This was striking him hnrd.
and the quality of the man will nt once
appear plain to yon when I say that
he bad often received worse treatment,
but clung to tbe girl's skirts all the
more tenaciously. Turning to Brandon,
tlie princess snld:
"Mhster Brnndon, I am glnd to see
you, nnd regret exceedingly that our
friend of Bucklngbnm should so thirst
for your blood." Sbe then led him to
tho king nnd queen, to whom he mnde
his bow, nnd the pair continued tbelr
wnlk nbout tbe room. Mnry ngnin' nl-
liitlcd to tbe skirmish nt tbe door and
snid Inughingly:
"I would hnve come to your help, but
I knew you were amply nble to tnke
cure of yourself. I was sure you would
worst the duke ln some wny. It wns
better than a mummery, and I wus glad
to seo It.   I do not like him."
The king did not open these private
bulls, ns he wss supposed nt least, not
to be their pntron, nnd tho queen, who
wns considerably older thnu Henry,
was averse to such things. So the princess opened her own bnlls, dancing for
a few minutes, with tho floor entirely
to herself and partner. It wns tbo honor of tbo evening to open tho bull with
her, nnd quito curious to soo how men
put themselves In her wny nnd stood
so ns to bo cnslly observed nnd, per-
elinneo, chosen. Brnndon nfter lenvlng
Mnry hnd drifted Into a corner of tho
room back of a group of peoplo and
wns talking to Wolsey—who wns al-
wnys very friendly to liim and to Muster Cavendish, n quaint, quiet, easy little man, full of learning and kindness,
nnd n warm friend to tbo Princess
It wns timo to open the bull, and
from my plnee In tlio musicians' gal-
lory I conld seo Mnry moving nbout
ninong the gHcsts, evidently looking for
n pnrtner, while the men resorted to
some vory trnnspnrent nnd amusing
expedients to nttrnet her attention. The
princess, however, took none of the
bidders, nnd soon, I noticed, Bhe espied
Brandon standing In the corner with
bis back townrd her.
Something told me she wns going to
nsk blm to open the dance, nnd I regretted It, because I knew It would set
invery nobleman In tho houso ngalnst
liim, they being very JenlouB of tho
"lowborn fnvorltcs," ns tbey cnlled tho
untitled friends of royalty. Suro
enough, I wns right Mnry nt once begnn to mnke her wny over to tho corner, nnd I henrd her sny, "Mnster Brandon, will you dnnce with me?"
It wns done prettily. The whole girl
ebnnged ns soon ns she found herself tn
Trout of blm. In plnco of the old timo
confidence, strongly tinged with arrogance, she wnn almost shy, nnd blushed
mid stnmmercd with quick coming
brentb, like n burgher mnld beforo her
new found gnllnnt At once tbo courtiers mndo wny for her, nnd out sho
wnlked, lending Brnndon by tho hand.
Upon her lips nnd In her eyes wns n
rare, triumphant smile, ns lf to sny:
"Look nt this .liaiidsiuiic new trophy
pf my bow and sDeor,"
I wns surprised nnd nlnrmed when
Mnry chose Brandon, but when I turned to the musicians to direct their play
Imagine, If you can, my surprise when
tbe leader snld:
"Mnster, we hnve our orders for the
flrst dnnce from the princess."
Imnglne nlso, if you cnn, my double
surprise nnd alarm — nay, nlmost my
terror—when the bnnd struck up Jnne's
"Snllor Lass." I snw the look of surprise nnd inquiry which Brnndon gave
Mnry, standing there demurely by his
Bide, when he first henrd the music,
and I heard her nervous littlo lnugh ns
she nodded her fcend, "Yes," nnd step-
tied closer to him to take position for
the dance. Tho next moment she wns
In Brandon's nrms, flying like a sylph
about the room. A buzz of astonishment nnd delight greeted them before
tbey were hnlf wny nround and then a
grent clapping of hands, ln which the
king himself joined. It wns n lovely
sight, although I think a graceful woman Is more heautiful lu La Gnlllard
than uny otlier dance or, ln fact, any
otber situation ln which she cnn place
After n little time the downger Duchess of Kent, first lndy In waiting to the
queen, presented lierself nt the musl-
clnns' gnlleiy'and snld thnt her mnjes-
ty hud ordered the music stopped, and
the musicians, of course, ceased playing nt onco. Mnry thereupon turned
quickly to me.
"Mnster, nro our musicians weary
that they stop before aye nre through?"
The queen answered for me ln a high
voiced Spanish accent: "I ordered the
music stopped. I will not permit such
an Indecent exhibition to go on longer."
Fire sprang to Mary's eyes and she
exclaimed: "If your majesty does not
like the way we do and dnnce nt my
balls, you can retlro ns soon ns you
see lit Your face ls a kill-mirth anyway." It never took long to rouse her
The queen turned to nenry, who was
Inuglilng, nnd angrily demanded:
"Will your majesty permit me to be
thus insulted In your very presence?"
"You got yourself Into lt Get out of
It ns best you can. I hnve often told
you to let her alone. Sho has shnrp
clnws." Tho king was renlly tired of
Cutherlno's sour frown before he married her. It was ber dower of Spanish
gold tbnt brought ber a second Tudor
"Shnll I not hnve whnt music and
dnnces I wnnt at my own balls?" asked
the princess.
"That you shall, sister mine; thnt
you shnll," answered the king. "Go on,
mnster, nnd If the girl likes to dunce
thnt wny, In God'S nnme let her hnVe
her wish. It will never hurt her. We
will lenrn it ourself, nnd will wear the
Indies out n-dnneltig."
After Mnry hnd finished the opening
dnnce thero was n grent demnnd for
Instruction. The king nsked Brandon
to tench bim the steps, which he soon
lenruetl to perform with n grace per-
bnps equnled by no living crcnture other thnn n fnt brown bear. The ladles
were at first a little shy nnd Inclined
lo stnnd nt nrm's length, but Mnry hnd
set the fashion and tlio others soon
followed. I hnd taken a fiddler to uijr
room nnd "bnd lenrned the dnnce from
Brandon nnd wus able to teach lt nlso,
though I locked practice to make uy
step perfect. The princess hnd needed
no practice, but had danced beautifully from the first, her strong young
limbs nnd supple body taking ns unt-
urnlly to anything requiring grnco of
movement ns a cygnet to water.
This, thought I, Is my opportunity to
tench June the new dance. I wanted
to go to her first, but wns nfrnld, or
for some reason did uot, nnd took several other ludies ob they came. After
I had Bbown the step to tbem I sought
out my sweetheart. Jane wns not a
prude, but I honestly believe Bhe wns
the most provoking girl tbat ever lived.
I never bad succeeded In holding her
hnnd even the smallest pnrt of nn In-
sliint. nnd yet I wns sure she lilted mc
very much—nlmost sure she loved me.
She fenred I might unhinge It nnd curry lt away, or something of that Bort, I
suppose. When I went up and asked
ber to let me tench her the new dnnce,
she said:
"I tbnnk you, Edwin, but there nre
others who are more anxious lo lctirn
thun I, nnd you had better teach tbem
"But I wnnt to tench you. When I
wish to tench tliem, I will go to them."
"You did go to several others before
you thought of coining to me," nnswer-
ed June, pretending to lie piqued, Now,
tbnt wus the onklndest thing I ever
knew u girl to do-refuse ine whnt she
knew I so wanted and then put the refusal on the pretended ground that I
did not enro much about lt. I so told
her, and she snw she hnd enrried things
too fnr nnd thnt I was growing nngry
In earnest. She then mnde nnother
false though somewhat flattering excuse:
"I could not benr to go through thnt
dnnce before bo large n company. I
should not object bo much If no one else
Could sec—that ls, with you, Edwin."
"Edwin!" Oh, so soft and sweet I The
little Jnde! To think that sbo could
hoodwink me so easily and tnlk me Into
n good humor with her soft, purring
"Edwin I" I snw through lt nil quickly
enough nnd left her without nnother
word. In n few minutes she went Into
nu adjoining room where I knew she
wns nlone. The door wns open, nnd
tbo music could bo henrd there, so I
"My lndy, there ls no one to see us
here. I cnn tench yo.u now, If you
wish," snld I.
Sho saw sho was cornered, nnd replied, with n toss ot her saucy littlo
bead, "But what lf I do not wish?'!.
Now, this was moro than I eould endure with patience, so I answered, "My
young lady, you shall nsk me beforo I
tench you."
"Thero are others whoi can dance It
mnch oetter 'tnnn you," she retur'nea,
without looking at me.
"If you allow another to teach you
tbat dance," I responded, "you will
have seen the last of me." Sbe bnd
mnde me angry, aud I did uot speak to
her for more than a week. When I
did—but I will tell you of tbnt later on.
The evening wns devoted to lenrnlng
the new dance, and I snw Mary busily
engaged lmparUng information among
the ladles. As we were about to disperse I heard her sny to Brandon:
"You have grently plensed the king
by bringing him a now amusement
He nsked me where I learned It, nnd I
told him you had taught it to Caskoden and that I bad it from him. I told
Caskoden so that he can tell tbe same
"Oh, but thnt is not true. Don't you
think you should have told blm tbe
truth or bave evaded it ln some wny?"
asked Brnndon, wbo was renlly n great
lover of tbe truth, "wben possible,"
but wbo, I fear, on this occasion wished to appear more truthful than be
really was.   If a man ls to a woman's

lays up grent stores In her henrt by

Mary flushed a little and answered:
"I can't help lt. You do not know.
Had I told Henry that we four had
enjoyed such a famous time In my
rooms he would have beeu very angry,
aud—and—you might have beeu tbe
"But might you not have compromised matters by going around the
truth some way and leaving tho Impression thnt others were of tbe pnrty
that evening?"
Thnt was a mistake, for lt gave Mnry
an opportunity to retallnte: "Tbe best
way to go around the truth, ns you cnll
It is by a direct He. My lie wns no
worse thnn yours. But I did not stop
to nrgue nbout such mntters. There ls
something else I wished to say. 1 wnnt

Now tench him 'honor and ruff' aud
your fortune Is made. He has bnd
some Jews nnd Lombards In of late to
teach blm new games nt enrds, but
yours ls worth nil of tbem." Then,
Bomewhat hastily and irrelevantly, "I
did not dance the new dnnce with nny
otlier gentleman, but I suppose you did
not notice it," nnd she was gone before
be could tbauk ber.
jnE princess knew her royal
brother. A mnn would receive quicker rewnrd for Inventing an amusement or a
gaudy costume for the king thnn by
winning blm a battle. Later ln life the
hlghrond to his fnvor wns In ridding
him of his wife and helping him to a
new one, a dangerous wny, though, as
Wolsey found, to his sorrow, wben he
sank bis glory ln poor Anne Bolcyn.
Brandon took the hint and managed
to let It be known to his play loving
| king tbat he knew the latest French
games. Tho French Due do Longue-
vllle had for some time been an honored prisoner at tho English court, held
ob a hostage from Louis XII., but De
Longueville was a blockhead, who
could not keep his little black eyes off
our fair ladles, who bated blm, long
enough to tell the deuce of spndcs from
the nee of benrts. So Brnndon wus
taken from bis duties, such as they
were, and placed at the card tnble.
This was fortunate at first, for, being
tho best player, tho king always chose
blm ns bis pnrtner, and, ns in every
other gnmc, the king nlways won. If
he lost, there would soon bo no gnme,
and the man who won from blm too
frequently was ln danger nt nny moment of being rated guilty of tho very
highest sort of treason. I think many
a mnn's fnll under Henry VIII. wu
owing to the fnct that be did not always allow tho king to win lu some
trivial matter of game or joust. Under
theso conditions ovcrybody was anxious to ba tbo king's pnrtner. It Is true
ho frequently forgot to divide his winnings, but his pnrtner hnd this advantage nt lenst—thero wns no danger of
losing. Thnt being tbe ense, Brandon's
sent opposite tbo king wns very likely
to excite envy, nnd the time Boon enme,
Henry hnving lenrned tbo piny, when
Brandon lnjd to face somo one else, nnd
tbe sent wub too costly for a mnu without n trcnBury. It took but n few dnys
to put Brnndon bors do combnt linuii-
clnlly, and he would have been la a
bnd plight hnd not Wolsey como to his
relief. After thnt he plnycd and pnld
tbe king In his own coin.
This grent gnme of "honor and ruff"
occupied Henry's mind dny and night
during a fortnight Ho feasted upon
It to saUety, as he did with everything
else, never having learned not to cloy
his nppctlto by overfeeding. So we
snw little of Brnndon whilo tho klng'a
fever lnsted, nnd Mnry snld she wished
she hnd reiniiliicil silent nbout tho
cards. You see, she could enjoy this
new plaything ns well ns her brother,
but the king, of courso, must be mil;tilled first They both hnd enough eventually, Henry ln one wny, Mnry ln nnother.
One dny the fancy struck the king
thnt he would rebuild a certain chapel
at Windsor, so he took n number of tho
court Including Mnry, Jnne, Brnndon
nnd myself, nnd wont with us up to
London, where we lodged over night at
Bridewell House. The next morning—
ns bright nnd benutlful a Juno day as
ever gladdened tho henrt of a rose—wo
took horse for Windsor, a delightful
seven league ride over a fair road.	
Mary nnd Jnne traveled side by side,
with an occasional companion or two,
ns the rond permitted. I wns nngry
witb Jane, as you know, so did not go
near the girls, and Brandon, without
any apparent intention one way or the
other, allowed events to adjust themselves nud rode with Cavendish and
We were perhaps forty yards behind
the girls, and I noticed after a time
that the Lady Mary kept looking backward ln our direction, as If fearing rain
from the cast. I was in hopes thnt
Jnne, too, would fear tbe rain, but you
would have sworn her neck wns stiff,
so straight abend did she keep ber fnce.
Wo hnd ridden perhnps three lengueu
when the princesB stopped her horso
nnd turned in ber enddlc. I beard her
voice, but did not understand wbat she
In a moment some one called out
"Mnster Brnndon ls wanted!" So that
gentleman rodo forward, nnd I followed him. When we enme up With
the girls, Mnry said, "I four my glrtb
ls loose."
Brnndon nt once dismounted to tighten lt, nud the others of our Immediate
party began to cluster around.
Brandon tried tbe glrtb.
"My lady, it is as tight as tbe horse
can well benr," he snld.
"It ls loose, I sny," Insisted tho princess, with a little Irritation. "The Buddie feels like lt. Try the other." Then,
turning impntiently to the persons
gnthcred around: "Does lt require all
of you, standing thero like gaping
bumpkins, to tighten my girth? Hide
on. Wc cau manage this without so
much help." Upon this broad hint everybody rode ahead whilo I held tho
horso for Brandon, who went on with
his search for tbe loose girth. Whilo
ho was looking for It Mnry leaned over
her horse's neck and asked: "Were you
and Cavendish settling all the philosophical points now in dispute, tbat
you found blm so Interesting?"
"Not nil," answered Brandon, smiling.
"You wero so absorbed I supposed lt
could be nothing short of that."
"No," replied Brandon ngnin. "But
the girth is not loose."
"Perhnps I ouly Imagined It," returned Mnry cnrclessly, bnvlug lost
Interest in tbe girth.
I looked townrd Jnne, whose eyes
were bright wltb n smile, nnd turned
Brandon's horse over to him. Jane's
Bmllo gradually broadened into a laugh
and she snld, "Edwiu, I fenr my girth
Is loose nlso."
"As the Lndy Mnry's wns?" nsked I,
nimble to keep a straight faco any
"Yes," answered Jane, with a vigorous little nod of her hend nnd n penl of
"Then drop bnck with me," I responded.
Tbe princess looked nt us with n hnlf
smile, half frown, and remarked, "Now
you doubtless consider yourselves very
brlllinnt nnd witty."
"Yes," returned Jnne maliciously,
nodding her head ln emphatic assent,
ns the princess nnd Brnndon rode on
before us.
"I hope she Is snUsfled now," snld
Jnne sotto voce to me.
"So you wnnt mo to ride with you?"
I replied.
"Yes," nodded Jnne.
"Why?" I nsked.
"Becnuso I want you to," was the
enlightening response.
"Then why did you not dnnce with
me the other evening?"
"Becnuse I did not wnnt to."
"Short but comprehensive," thought
I, "but a sufficient reason for a maiden."
I snld nothing, however, nnd nfter a
time Jane spoke: "The dance wns one
thing and riding with you ls another.
I did not wish to dance with you, but I
do wish to rldo with you. You are tho
only gentleman to whom I would hnve
snld whnt I did nbout my girth being
loose. As to the new dance, I do not
caro to lenrn lt, becnuse I would not
dnnce it with nny mnn but you, nnd
not even with you—yet." This mnde
me glad, nnd coming from coy, modesl
Jnne meant a great deal. It meant
that she cared for me and would somo
dny be mine, but lt also meant tbat sbo
would take her own time and her own
sweet way ln being won. This was
comforting, lf not satisfying, nnd loosened my tongue. "Jane, you know my
heart Ib full of love for you"—
"Will tbo unlverso crumble?" she
cried, with the most provoking little
laugh. Now, that sentence was my
rock ahead whenever I tried to give
Jane some Idea of the state of my affections. It was a part of tbo speech
which I bad prepared and delivered to
Mary in Jane's hearing, as you already
know. I had said to tho princess, "The
universe will cruiublo and tho heavens
roll up ns a scroll cro my love shnll niter or pnle." It wns n high sounding
sentciico, but lt wns not truo, ns I wns
forced to admit, almost with tho samo

It and had stored it nwny In thnt memory of hers, so tcnneloiis In holding to
everything lt should forgot. It Is wonderful wbnt n fund of useless Information some persons accumulate nnd cling

never would forget tbnt uiifortunntc,

thnt I hnd snld substantially tho same
thing to n dozen others. I never should

■What Happened When Siilllo  Called
on the Tailor Who Knew.
Two young women had been discussing the undoubted firmness of character possessed by the one named "Sal-
He." "Your nose and chin," declared
Jeannette, "denote great decision and
executive ability."
"Well," said Sallle, "I have been to
your tailor, and I want to know what
you sent me to him for."
"Why," said her friend, "I sent you
to htm because I like blm. He knows
so well wbat I want. He takes everything out of your hands."
"He Blmply does!" said Sallle. "I
went In there today and told him I
wanted to have a brown suit made up.
'You don't want brown, madam,' he
said. I said I did. He contradicted me.
'You bave too sallow a skin to wear
brown, madam. Here is a cloth suitable for you,' and be showed mo a hideous mixed thing ln gray and black."
"Did you take lt?" asked Jeannette.
"I did," replied Sallle. "But for a
long time I was very firm about not
wanting tho goods. That was while we
were talking about the way to mako
tlie coat, I mentioned nn Eton. But be
smiled at me lu pity. 'Oh, no, madam,'
be said sadly, 'you enn't wear nn Eton.
It takes a very youug lady to wear an
Eton. What you waut Is a coat cut Just
four Inches below the waist line.'
"Then he asked mo to stand up, and
I stood up, and be whipped out his tape
measure and measured me while I was
trying to tell him I didn't want nnythlng to do with him. I talked the way
you talk in a nightmare, you know,
realizing perfectly well what you want
to say and not being able to say It."
Sallle paused dejectedly. '"What I
want to know is," she continued, after
a moment's silence, "bow lt happened.
Por I've got a Duke of Wellington nose
and nil the other features that go to
make up a stiong minded person, and

"Well," Bald Jeannette with a little
Biggie, "you'll like your suit"
"Shall I?" said Sallle hopefully.
The Englishman Abroad.
An English tourist entered a restaurant and by n few scraps of French
was able to order dinner. He wanted

ten minutes and returned with a handsome   umbrella.
A Promising Fimr-yenr-old,
Bnby Alice had been scolded for contradicting. Being but four years, old
her mother hardly expected that tho
lecture was fully understood or would

however, at supper time when baby
said, "Mamma, now don't contradict;
please may I have some more pudding?'
Lady—No, we don't need any new
locks on our house. Ours are plenty
good enough.
Insistent Vender—There, madam, Is

Population of New York.
The population of tho city of New
York, according to the estimate of the
Fedeiation of Churches after a careful
study of the situation, was about four
millions last June, the Increase since
1900 having been more than half a
million, says The New York Sun. If
that rate of Increase continues during
the rest of the present decade the
population in 1910 will be about four
millions and three-quarters.
That Is, ln 1910 the population ot
New York will be more than a million
and a quarter greater than In 1900. Of
this Increase, probably more than one-
third will be of Jews, which race already now makes up toward one-fifth
of the Inhabitants. In 1900 the population of foreign birth and parentage
constituted about four-fifths of the
whole, and Its percentage is now Increasing because of the unpreceden-
tedly great Immigration.
At present the aggregate of the distinctively Christian population of the
town ls only about two-fifths of the
whole. This Includes the whole of the
Roman Catholic population and the
total number pf Protestant communicants. Besides these, tbe Federation
estimates a total of about half a million Protestants who attend church
more or less regularly and more than
a million Protestants who are "church-
less," or outside of any religious faith.
New York, therefore, cannot now bo
called a Christian city. The total ol
Protestant communicants and church
attendants, as estimated by the Federation, is only about as great as that
of the Jews alone, and by 1910 tt is
likely to be much less. By that time
there will be more Jews here than
natives of native parentage. The Jewish population has increased from only
about 3 per cent, of the whole ln 1880
to nearly 20 per cent, ln 1905.
London's Underfed Children,
After an Investigation of the question
of the presence ln elementary schools
of largo numbers of children who on
account of being underfed are unable
to derive proper benefits from the Instructions, tho Local Government
Board has Issued an order dealing
therewith ln the spirit of truly pater
nal Government.
~The order Instructs managers and
teachers who find children coming to
school Inadequately fed immediately to
notify tbe overseers of the poor, who
will at once supply the requisite relief.
This must never be ln the form of
money, but the actual food needed.
An Interesting feature of the ordor
Is the fact that complete discretion ls
vested ln the overseers as to whethor
the relief shall be given aa a loan or as
poor relief ln the ordinary sense. In
cither case the father will bo informed
and will have an opportunity to make
the necessary provision himself.
If he fails to do this, and ln tho op
hilnn of the overseers lt ls a case of
neglect, their relief will bo regarded
as a compulsory loan which they will
bo ablo to recover ln a County Court.
If, however, the parent ls considered a
bona-flde poor person unable to bear
the expense, the burden will fall on
tho rates, tho parent not being disfranchised as Is ordinarily the case on
receipt of parish relief.
Tho relief ls not continued more
than a month on a single application.
Tho Local Government Board suggests
that If a second application be mado
on account of the samo child within
six months the overseers shall consider
whether It ls their duty to proceed
against the father under tho Vagrancy
Act or the Prevention of Cruelty to
Ohlldren Act.
Relic of Charles I.
In an article ln The Practitioner devoted to the subjoct of Royal relics
special mention Is made of certain
bones from the nock of Charles I., at
one time ln the possession of Sir Henry
Halford, physician to George III. and to
threo other Sovereigns.
The coffin of the beheaded King was
discovered and Identified ln 1813, when
It was found ln St. George's Chapol,
Windsor, alongside those of Henry VIII.
and Jane Seymour. The skin of the

Success Cannot Be Copied or Successfully Imitated..
No human being ever yet made a success trying to be somebody else even
lf that person was a success. Success
cannot be copied, cannot be successfully imitated. It is an original force, a
creative process. Every man will be a
failure just ln proportion as he gets
away from himself and tries to be
somebody else and to express somebody else Instead of himself. Power
comes from within or from nowhere.
Be yourself. Listen to the voice within. There ls room for Improvement in
every profession, in every trade and
ln every business. The world wants
men who can do things ln new and
better ways. Don't think because your
plan or idea has no precedent or because you are young and inexperienced
tbat you will not get a hearing. The
man who has anything new and valuable to give to the world will be listened to and will be followed. The man
of strong Individuality, wbo dares to
think his own thought and originate
his own method and who ls not afraid
to be himself, not a copy of some ono
else, quickly gets recognition. Nothing else will attract the attention of
your employer or tbe rest of the world
so quickly as originality and unique
ways of doing things, especlnlly If tbey
are effective.—Orison Swott Mardcn In

"For more than a year I had been

"Doctors and medicines falling to

The Difficulties ot One Who Cannot

Nljnl Novgorod, where the great Russian fair ls held, far on toward the
frontier of Asia, I found tbe most difficult proposition in all Europe from tbe
standpoint of tlie traveler seeking rest
and refreshment I * knew only one
word lu Russian, "vodka," and oue can
pronounce thnt too often. Nobody
leemed to speak anytblng but Russian.
I conld not get a cabman to take me to
a hotel. One lsvoschlc after another
would pick mo up, seem to understand
and then take me to a shop, a steamship pier, a private residence. I was
reduced to the humiliating necessity of
making pictures of hotels, beds and
food of all sorts—and quite without
avail. At last, bethinking myself that
the trade of Russia was ln German
bands, I started out afoot In search of
any mercantile looking person with
close cropped blond beard and spectacles. Such a man I found, and he
directed me ln German to a traktlr,
where I bad breakfast with the aid of
moro crude cartooning. "Coffee" Is

a number of elliptical figures ln my
notebook and finally make a spirited
drawing of the common or garden ben

She _Sato_nba Living Spiders as Food

When summer warmth has awakened
the maternal Instincts of tho insect
world the mud dauber wasp may be
Been gathering mortar at tho margln-of
stream, pool or puddle. Filling her
mandibles, which serve as both spade
and hod, she bears tbe load of mud to
some rough surface, rock or wall or
board or beam. She spreads and shapes
her mortar until, after many visits to
the mud bed, she bas built a tubular
cell about an inch long and three-
eighths of an Inch wide.
Then her huntress Instinct awakens
and her raids upon the spider realm begin, for within this cylinder the mother mason will put a single egg. In
course of time this will hatch Into a
ravenous larva whose natural food Is
living spiders, and these the mother
proceeds to capture and entomb within
her mud daub nursery. On this errand
sbe may be seen hawking over and
near cobwebs of vnrlous sorts, venturing within the meshed and beaded
snares that prove fatal to most Incomers and sometimes even to herself. If
tbe occupant, expectant of prey, sallies

Convenience  ot Feeding On-   et th*
Advilntugen'of This Plan.
There are some advantages In having a silo Inside tbe barn. It is convenient for feeding, protected from the
frost and, lf properly arranged, Is more
convenient to fill, says L. W. Llgbty
In Nationnl Stockman. Then.the cost
ls considerably reduced, ns tbe barn
roof is also the silo roof uud often a
part of the barn frame will help to
form tbe silo walls. In planning n new
barn tt Is advisable to Include tbe silo
in tlie some structure and locate tbe
silo doors as near the feeding alley hs
possible, as tbat will save considerable
labor In feeding, and ln these times labor on the farm means dollars.
The cheapest, best and most convenient barn is the round or circular barn,
with the silo In tbe center. The silo extends from tbe ground up to tho peuk,
thirty to forty or more feet high. Such
a barn ls compact roomy, light ln all
tho stalls, convenient to fill aud also
to "do the chores," After studying
the merits of both circular and rectangular barns I am fully convinced
that the circular form ls preferable In
every way, and personally I Bhould
build no otber were I to build ogalu.
If wo wish to feed forty pounds of
silage to each cow per day, and that Is
a fair ration, wo may for practical
work call tbat amount a cubic foot,
averaging from top to bottom of silo,
and thus to feed fifteen animals would
require fifteen cubic feet per dny nnd
for eight months 8,000 cubic feet. But
the silage will settle quite considerably
after tilling the silo, depending, of
course, on bow fast lt ls filled, how fine
cut, etc., but we must make somo allowance, usually one-fourth. Then It Is
well to have some silage left over_ for
the August drought, so we might add
1,000 cubic feet to tho above, making
it 4,600 cubic feet capacity.
A round silo to contain tills might bo
fifteen feet In diameter and thirty feet
high, or, If we could go up higher, we
might reduce the diameter accordingly,
and that might be desirable, as we
should remove from the Burface for
best results about 1% Inches dally. To
do this where but fifteen bead of cattle ure fed the Inside diameter of tbe
silo should not be above I2_ feet
Then to contain 4,000 cubic feet that
silo should be thlrty-elgbt feet high.
Milk For Cnlf Feeding.
Stale, cold Bklm milk Is n fruitful
cnuse of scours In calves, and removal
of tbo froth Is a soeondury consideration whero sueli milk Is used, says
Hoard's Dairyman. Milk for calf feeding should be warm, fresh and clean,
fed from clean pails. If dirty palls are
used and cold, stale milk fed, scours almost Invariably follow, nnd when the
scours are not fatal a stunted calf Is
the usual result. It Is also not an uncommon error to feed too much sklui
milk, trying to make up ln quantity
for the abstracted fat.

suffered almost all that one can endure from weakness and nervousness.
I was as pale as a sheet, and wasted
away. Tbo least noise would startle

spells, when I would suddenly lose
consciousness and drop to the doer.
At othor times my heart would palpitate violently and cause a smothering sensation. Night and dny my

and I seemed to be contlnunlly growing worso. No medicine that I took
helped mo ln the least until 1 began
lulling Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
after I hnd taken half a dozen boxes,
I folt so much hotter that I stopped
taking thom and went on a visit to
Boston. I had made a mistake, how-
over, ln stopping the pills too soon,
and I began to go back to my formor
condition. I tbon called on a well known
Boston doctor, and after explaining
my caso, told him how Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills had helped me before. He
told me to continue their uso, saying
I could tnke nothing better, nnd 1 got

boxes In nil, and they fully and completely restored my health, and I have

Corn-Colored  Silk  Gown,
Upon the corn-colored silk skirt the
tunic line was more pointed at the
sides, and had a broad band of tulle
embroidery of great beauty with a
deep fall ol most delicate Valenciennes lace gathered on below. The bodice was mostly of the same lace in-
i.et into parts of the silk drapery, with
a collarette _j?f quite another style of
Valenciennes lace wliich fitted inlo the
half-low neck opening in a most becoming way. The sleeves of th,i.
gown were in poitfs of the silk at the
♦lop with an'elaborate bottom finish
of the same lace fitted to the arm, but
turned both ways with manoeuvring*
of the silk resembling small dahlias
that were extremely taking. The
same silk was draped into a girdle
wiih a front and back lace medallion
wired into shape.

Flower aprons arc girlish little affairs that protect the front of a skirt
while the wearer is doing some   light I
work.   They arc made of colored lin- j
ens, usually, and arc stamped or dc-1
signed off hand to suggest foliage or I
Howcrs.    A rose apron, for example,
should be cut in the shape of a rose;
petal, out of pink linen, and  worked
On the bottom in long and short buttonhole stitch in pink silk of the Roman  floss sort.    That done, work ill
yellow  silk  al   ihc     tup,    which,    of.
course, is narrow, and to be mounted
in a linen belt, the stamens of the rose
downwards. Daisy aprons of yellow
linen are worked with white, and clover leaf aprons are worked with pale
greens, upon green linen. Four-leaf
clovers for luck, arc the choice, three
leaves for the apron and the fourth
for tlie bib. Geranium leaf apron9
are also very attractive, if the borders
arc worked with greens shading up
to almost white. All white embroidery is also extremely pretty for these
Ilower aprons.
