toll nor spin, must have becn amazed !
and saddened by a very unusual music i

makes his appearance. Ho is greeted
with derisive yells.

also Imitates animals, the noises of

The poor fellow does not possess tin
slightest truce of any sort of talent,
and his efforts are greeted with scorn
ful jeers and hissing.
The unhappy clown makes desper
ate effortd to appear unmoved, ana
goes on with his turn to tlle bitter
end. The following feat finishes lii
nightly martyrdom. Balancing himself on bis head and hands, he con
trlvea to hold a mandolin between bis
j legs  and  playB     "tunes"    with    his

Odessa, April 'J2. To say that Russia is threatened with a petroloui.i

of a eral famine at. Newcastle, bul i
is a fact, nevertheless.
A petrol famine is already oeing

state dunia, nn tbe motion of the the
deputy M. Khvostoft. has now under
discussion the questicn of devising
some kind of legislative measure for
ihe control of the naphtha trust. Rightly or wrongly, the belief obtains that
the trust is deliberately limiting the
output of Caucaslon naphtha with the
Inblect of inflating spot and retail
Two years agn 'be market price of
petroleum  was  HI  copecks  (8 centsl
j per pood   (36  lhs.1.  Last  year it advanced to 22 copecks  (Ki centsl. and
'the current  price today is 41 copecks
; 122  cent 11   pc  pood,  and  with ever;.
prospect,  as   M.   Khvostoft     told     tin
duma. of further Increasing to -tii 66
'o 70 copecks.    According to a recent
official  report  tliere  was  last  year a
| shortage of no less than eleven hundred  thousand  tons  of  ray  naphtha,
' owing, it was understood, to the decreased productivity of the Caucasian
i founts
This explanation is generally dis
sredlted and it is M, KhvostofT's con-
���tctlon that if the spot prices of oil at
the wills be controlled by the crown
Hie general output will shortly Increase to its previous and norma! extent.

this drastic method can Inhabitants
Of tiie United Kingdom protect their!
homes against Invasion.
Now the present British government, of which Lord aleticonner's
brother-in-law Is the bend, is strongly opposed to any such measure. The |
necessity for universal military ser- ���
vice Is constantly being urged by lhe
opposition.    Lord Gleneonner Is the
lord high OOinmiSStoner tO the Church
nf Scotland, an office In the gift of the
government,    A�� high  commissioner
Lord Gleneonner is given royal honors '���

part nf advanced  Liberals thai  Glen-

For two reasons this is iinllkelv lo |
happen. In the first place Lord Gleneonner Is the favorite brother of Mrs.
Asqulth. And 'Margot" Tennant nib's
tbe emiiire from Downing street more
surely and more tactfully than Victoria or any queen that ever sat on the
British throne.
She never interferes but Bhe always
gets her way. Her name rarely appears
in print: she Is opposed to all unwomanly luetics of the suffragettes, but.
sbe holds her hUBband and his ministers by chains of charm and intellect
so strong as to make her invincible.
His Enormous Wealth.
The second reason Is that Lord Gleneonner, with his enormous wealth. Is
one of the financial mainstays of the j
Liberal  purse.    The  loss of his  con-,
tributions would be a vital blow to the
government's campaign chest.
lie knows It and has alwaya enjoyed 1
the fun of being independent. In addi- j
tion to announcing himself as an advocate of universal military training,
he has just engendered the hatred of
the I^bor party, his brother inlaw's
Philip Snowden, the Labor member
of parliament, declared that such sort
of military training would "foster and
increase International ill-will."

of the Liberal party if he were not al

"There is more ill-will. envy, hatred, i
