Halifax, May 4.-- A big ocean liner
is on fire. A wireless message received here this afternoon from the
steamer Zldlltz stated that au un
knoewn steamer was on fire 150 miles
to the south of Sable island. The vessel was enveloped in flames and her
name could not be ascertained.
The Zldlltz sent out wireless calls
lor assistance and several steamers
responded. Responses to the. wireless
appeal were received from the steamers Sachem, Franconla, Olympia and
Hradenburg. All these vessels proceeded to the rescue.
Another wireless message placed
the position of the burning vessel at
41,27 north, 51.07 west. There was no
sign of life on the steamer It was added and no ships boats could be seen
in the vicinity.
Identity Not Known.
The Zldlltz circled around the burn
ing ".eB-sel but the smoke hung so
heavily about her that her name could
not  be distinguished.
As no small boats were discovered
in the vicinity .and as the Olympic
had passed not far from the scene,
twelve or fifteen hours before, it was
believed that the unnamed vessel
caught fire after midnight and that
all hands were rescued by some ship
which had no wireless.
So far as learned tonight no steamer with wireless reported herself in
distress, although part of a wireless
message picked up from some westbound liner last night stated that she
v. as having boiler and engine trouble
and was making slow progress into
New   York.

Trinidad, Colo.. May 4. Major W,
A. Holbrook said tonight that Col.
James lyockett, commanding the 7th
United States cavalry, would reach
Trinidad at 7:30 tomorrow morning to
take supreme command of the federal
forces In Colorado. The officers and
men of the 11th, travelling in seven
trains are expected to begin arriving
shortly after their commander.
With the arrival of the reinforcements it is expected that 'he negotiations for the surrender of arms by
all parties will be pushed to a conclusion. Already the guards of the
Col'irai!.. Fuel aud Iron company at
W'alsi'ii and House mines have turned over their guns to the soldiers who
were stationed to guard the mined. In
Huerfano county the strikers have
agreed to deliver up all their weapons
to Capt.  C.  C.  Smith  on  Wednesday.
Representatives of both the Colorado Fuel and Iron company and the
Victor American Fuel company have
expressed a willingness to disarm their
guards as rapidly as their mines come
under the protection of I'nited States
Today .Major Holbrook inaugurated
the policy of furnishing guards for
the paymasters of both strikers and
mine operators. The Colorado Fuel
and iron company paymaster went to
Sopris under a federal guard. In a
similar fashion the miners distributed
strike benefits at various points in the
Segundo neighborhood.
Major Holbrook planned to meet
Col. I.ockett upon his arrival and report on the situation in the coal fields
and the activities Of the federal
night, announcing through Secretary
Bryan that General Huerta had designated D. Kmilio Rabaca, an eminent
Mexican jurist, and Augustin Sarza,
under secretary of Justice, as two of
bis delegates to confer with the mediators. Mr. Bryan did not reply to the
mediators as to the appointment of
the American delegates.
The length of the envoys' conference
with Secretary Bryan led to the belief that some of the crucial questions
were being approached. While no official announcement was made, it was
generally understood as a result of
the unyielding attitude of the constitutionalists, mediation for the time being would be limited to the flag Incident at Tampico, on which President
Wilson's course was justified by the
joint resolution of congress.
Huerta's Condition Critical.
Reports of the desperate condition
of Huerta at Mexico City continued to
circulate and with such circumstantial
detail from authentic sources as to
leave no doubt of his critical condition.
At the  same time the  military as
Ottawa, May 4.���Discussion In the
house today was of an exceedingly
varied characted. In the early part of
the afternoon a large number of private bills were disposed of and the
premier at the request of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier outlined the program of the
session yet to be undertaken. A long
list of measures, ten in number, was
enumerated by the premier as having still to go on the order paper for
consideration this session and there
are evidences that the session may
be much longer than contemplated,
especially In view of the fact that
there is a large amount of contentious
legislation on the order paper to be
disposed of.
Today the first Installment of Information asked for by the opposition
on the C. N. R. proposals was tabled
by the premier. It was intimated that
the resolution embodying the proposals had been left off the order paper in order that certain changes
might be made ln the original draft.
Two bills dealing with postoffice
legislation received their third reading tonight after lengthy discussion
on many phases of postoffice work.

The debate was on an amendment
to the agricultural appropriation bill
which was pending when the senate

An inquest was held yesterday af
ternoon at " o'clock in Murohie'a undertaking parlors, over the body of the
Indian girl, Celestlne Saul, which
was found In the Fraser last week.
According to the post-mortem made
by Dr. Green, no signs appeared upon the body which would show that
death resulted from violence.
Evidence was given by C. R. Lindsay, who admitted that he had been
living with the girl tor about seven
months, but no quarrel or fight had
taken place between them during that
time. Lindsay said that he had last
teen the girl on Sunday, April 10,

with headquarters at Texas City, is
ready, however, and could quickly go
if more troops are needed.
Word that Huerta was in desperate
straits came from many quarters. One
dispatch from a foreign minister at
Mexico City said briefly of Huerta
"position desperate," but gave no details. Another, through diplomatic
channels reported Mexiro City outwardly quiet today. Still another referred to the doubtful attitude of the
troops heretofore loyal to Huerta. Information also came that quarrels between General Blanquet, minister of
war. and Huerta, might bring Blanquet to the front in the event of the
fall of Huerta. much as Huert-i rose
on the collapse of the Madero regime
and the Felix Diaz movement.
Americans Safe in Mexico City.
The Brazilian minister in Mexico
City satisfied the state department
that Americans there were in no way
'.larrassed or in danger, but that he
had advised them to avoid demonstrations until they could leave. This
situation in Mexico City gave added
Importance to the summoning of
Joaquin d'Canasus from Carlsbad. It
was believed that his real post was
to be minister of foreign affairs at
Mexico City, to take the place of the
inexperienced Ruls, named last Saturday when Huerta disposed of Hojas.
The minister of foreign affairs is in
direct line for the presidency under
the Mexican constitution, so that this
would bring to the station a man regarded as strong In case Huerta disappeared from tbe scene. Senor
d'Canasus was formerly Mexican ambassador at Washington and those
who know him, Including some of the
mediators, spoke in high terms of his
fitness for the foreign ninistry and
the presidential station at this juncture.
The mediators expressed satsfacton
with the class of men chosen by General Huerta as his delegates to confer with them. The appointment of
Rabosa brings a big man into the
proceedings. He is about 60 years old
nnd one of the foremost authorities
on Mexican law. He is one of the
closest advisers of General Huerta and
it has been said in Mexico City that
he was in the combination with Huerta
and Felix Diaz which disposed of the
Madero government.
The other Huerta delegate, Senator
Garza, is a young lawyer, secretary
to the president under Preside;nt Diaz.
mittee Dr. Roche explained that the
main feature of the bill was to provide
that on homestead pre-emptions and
purchased homesteads, where the land
was not good for agriculture, the settler could prove up by keeping a certain number of cattle and that in the
pre-emption area, the three years' interest required on the purchase price
should be thrown off. There was no
discussion and the house will go into
committee on the bill tomorrow.
Many   Millions   Required.
There was tabled in the hOnse today much Information concerning the
Canadian Northern railway, including
of completion, trust deeds of
1903. 1910 and 1913 and also a statement of securities pledged as collateral for loans.
Engineers' statement of amounts
required for completion of construction of the CNR. system, betterments
amounts owing contractors, cost of

up as follows:
Amount required for construction,

Chicago, May 4. -John F. Jelke, the
millionaire manufacturer of oleomargarine, who, with seven of his employees, was sentenced by Judge Geiger in the United States district court
today, for having violated the federal revenue laws, was released tonight on bonds pending the filing of
a writ of error in  their appeal.
Jelk, who was fined $10,000 and sentenced to two years in Leavenworth
penitentiary, the maximum penalty,
was rt leased on $20,000 bonds. Bonds
for the other defendants were fired at
$5000 each.
Called to the bar of the court Jelke
was asked if he had anything to say-
before sentence was imposed.
Asks Clemency for Employees.
"I have been in business in this community for more than 20 years," was
the reply. "I have had an honorable I
career. I do not ask anything for myself, but what is just. For the other
defendants I ask clemency, as I take
the entire responsibility of the case
on  myself."
Pronouncement of his fine and order of imprisonment followed after a
short pause in which the court room
gazed at the millionaire pleading for
mercy for his employees and accepting his 'fate  without a murmur.
None of the seven fined with Jelke
had anything to say when they were
Vera Cruz, May 4.���The outbreak of
another military revolt In Mexico
headed by General Velasco, who recently was driven out of Torreon by
Oeneral Villa, would not cause any
great surprise. ln the federal capital
according to observers who arrived
here today. General. Velasco is said
to be discontented* concerning the
failure of the government in Mexico
City to support him properly ln the
defence of Torreon and he has declared that he would never again lead a
column of troops against the rebels.
The fall of Torreon and the subsequent disaster to the federal troops
are asserted by General Velasco to
have been due to the failure of the
war department to heed his appeal for
small arm ammunition at a time when
he said it was perfectly feasible for
it to have reached him.
He asserted that there ls much plotting among the federal army officers,
many of whom are said to be dissatisfied with General Huerta and his conduct of military affairs.
Officers Hid During Battle.
General Javier du 'Moure and General Carlos Garcia Hidalgo, who were
sent to the relief of General Velasco
at Torreon, are reported to have been
found by General Velasco hiding under
freight -cars  during the heavy  fighting at San Pedro de las Colonlas after the fall of oTrreon and to have
been upbraided by him for their cowardice.   Another officer who reported
that  his   station  had   been   captured
was killed by General Velasco when
he learned that the position had been
abandoned  without  sufficient  cause.
Another officer, who was charged with
cowardice in the face of the enemy,
committed suicide while General Velasco was rebuking him.
In spite of his other difficulties General Velasco declared that he could
have won the battle of Torreon if the
war department had not failed to keep
him supplied with ammunition. Of the
6000 troops with which he started out.
General Velasco succeeded in reaching
Saltillo with 1200. Many had deserted
but his casualties had been great. Altogether, he says, he withstood 8,1 attacks by the rebels.

The Self Satisfied Woman and
Her Long Suffering Public.
By D. Maxwell Merry
No one deserves to succeed in advertising who
is not prepared to spend a good deal of trouble over
the work. The manufacturer and the retailer spend
both time and trouble over the selection of efficient
salesmen and the work of educating them to accurately represent their goods to the prospective customer. Yet both of these frequently neglect the
silent salesman���the newspaper advertisement���
upon which their success largely depends.
Even without painstaking effort, even written
as poorly as it generally is written, retail advertising pays the storekeeper. Practically no one ever
loses by it. But there is very little retail advertising
which, by work easily within the powers of any man
with brain enough to run a store, could not be made
a great deal more profitable than it is.
The kind of thought required is thought about
the goods in the store. Nothing has been put into
stock without a reason. There is nothing there that
the dealer would not recommend to his customers.
It is surely not much more difficult to write a recommendation than to frame a verbal one.

Reciprocal Trade.
The largest importer of timber in
New Zealand states that he is buying

The erratic movements of some
derelicts are almost uncanny. Not so
very long ago a Norwegian sailing-
ship called the Crown left Nova Scotia for a South American port. She
was laden with timber and while still
in tbe North Atlantic Ocean was overtaken by a terrible storm, which dismasted and left her a battered wreck.
The crew realizing it was useless to
remain on board, abandoned her and
took to the boats, never to be heard
of again; but their ship, although she
on that account. Occasionally a stump
or a log would seem to bar the way,
were the only noises at the head ot
the earth column.
Higher up on the mountain, where
about two acres of earth and mud
were struggling to find a foundation
on which to rest, the nolle of falling
trees and collapsing earth alternated
with the sloppy splash of subsiding
mud. A long tree trunk would blna
on the side of a stump or other object along the side of the slide. As
the mass moved downward the tree
trunk would be scraped alongside the
stump.   The resulting noise    sounded
Redwood from California. This gentleman has an exhibit of Canadian
timbers at the Auckland exhibition,
and prominently displayed is a notice:
"This timber from ('anada is paid
for by New Zealand butter."
This is intended to stimulate a demand for Canadian timber by the suggestion of reciprocal trade. The
transportation question being settled
the only obstacle appears to be the
price. If the Canadian can sell as
cheaply as the American he can secure the business.

If retailers would only realize how greatly their
interest in business would be increased through the
fact of always having an advertisement in preparation���a new one every week or day���they would not
regard advertising as expense or trouble, they would
do it for the pleasure of it and the satisfactory returns derived from good advertising.
Every dealer understands his goods. He knows
why he bought them, and why they ought to be easily
sold. He could talk about them all night. Yet when
he begins to advertise them he is apt to display his
name in the biggest type and a few prices of various
lines without entering into the selling points of his
goods in the way that will convince the reader.
The price may be an important factor in getting
business but it is only in exceptional cases when people can be induced to buy goods merely because they
are cheap. Ordinarily the reason is that they want
them. The purpose of advertising is to make people
want the goods.
Don't blame the newspaper because your advertising does not pull as you think it should. If your
goods are right and your prices are right, you have
just as much opportunity of success as the next man.
The newspaper gives you so much circulation for so
much money���it is up to you to make your advertising appeal to the readers by giving it the earmarks
of attractiveness and honesty. You are selling goods
that they want, and it is not difficult to convince
them if you put painstaking effort and thoughtful-
ness into the method of appeal.

The   story   of   this   .Mexican   Napo-
and career is remarkable.
In a fertile valley among the hills that
surround the Mexican city of Torreon
there lived fifteen years ago a sturdy

his agid parents and two sisters, both j
younger than himself. The ranch was

Both nl I hern were extremely beautiful .Mexican girl?, dark, with lone,
straight, Mark hair, and blackish

popular with the neighboring young
ranchers, who sought them as company on long gallops over the roads
through the woods adjoining Torreon
There  was a certain  young  niagis-

intensely.     Word   came   to   "Pancho"

The senorita's eyes tilled with tears.
She 'had become infatuated with the
wealthy young man.
At tho morning meal next day the
elder sister was missing. A search
of the home failed to reveal her.
"Pancho" was worried. He discovered,
then, that the young magistrate, too,

In silence they roue off into the

despite the darkness, "I'ancho" and

Villa said no word, but drew his revolver, it was a dramatic scene.
"Pancho" turned to the priest.
"Marry  them," he ordered  sharply.
Refusal was on the churchman's
lips, but a flourish of Villa's revolver
caused aim to comply.
There in the dark of night, in the
bills high above Torreon, the marriage
was solemnized. It was a marriage accompanied by no words of congratulation, no smile's, no kisses. Within ten
minutes from the time Francesco
Villa's sister became the young magistrate's bride she hrcame his widow.
Scarcely had the ceremony been
said when Villa Stepped between his

turned to the priest.

ordered, grimly.

Tin n the dispatches in American pane s began to tell about him- about
his raids in northern Mexico and his
defeat of detachments of federal
Presently, rallying aboul him a great
number ol r> bels in addition to his
troop of raiders, he began a series of
open and concerted attacks. He was
uniformly successful. Since his interjection of himself in Mexican affairs
he has come to be known as a great
general not a trained fighter, it
seems, but a natural one, and one
who  gains  the  loyalty  of  his  men.
His first conspicuous success was
the capture of Juarez, It was conspicuous because Juarez is across the river from Kl  Paso. Texas.
Quickly arranging the orderly administration of Juarez as a rebel city,
��� he red his soldiers together and
fell like a thunderbolt on a superior

Speaker at   Recent Zionist  Congrtss
Declares Ancient Tongue Is
Surely  Reviving.
The   Hague,    Holland,    May    4 ��� A
Zionist   congress   was   lately   held   at
greatest news agency in tbe world lie
under the serious charge of receiving
.-. very largn sum for blackmail Furthermore his office associates are under suspicion or under arrest. Th*
Renter office in Tokio, whica Bosnian}* years previously was coi&pitaed"
with the office of the Assoe'.ated
Press, was separated about a year
ago and established in the office of
the big news agency of Japan known
as the Nippon Dempo Tsushln. This
company  published   a   book  and  an-
The  Hague, the chief speaker  being   nounc��J   that  It  has  entered   into *
contract with Renter's.
Dr. Bloede of Hamburg. In the course
of an Interesting speech he explained
that the emancipation of the Jews in
the nineteenth century seemed to have
been bad for the race as a whole.
Altbough, he continued, some might
wish to see the same conditions in
Uermany and Russia as those which
have obtained In Italy, where a Jew
became a burgomaster, or in Knglaud.
where a Jew was elected lord mayor
of 1/ondun. on the other hand, since
the Jews have been obliged to establish Krancl-Jewlsb German-Jewish and
Anglo-Jewish churches, Palestine and
Zlon have sunk Into the background
and much that was beautiful aud noble in the Jewish race has disappeared.
Still there has always been a Jewish
ideal, revived by every outburst of
anti-seniltlsm. This was seen in tlie
Dreyfus affair, and also at Kief and
Klsjenef. In the Dreyfus case, Dr.
Bloedo s"aid, it was Theodor Herzl
who put into concrete form, what had
long been a vague and formless Jewish ideal, namely, the restabllshment
of a united Judaism. To this end he
urged the colonization of Palestine.
At first his ideas were not favorably
received. Other nations thought more
of Palestine than did the Jews, who
considered it a bar.*en land, and themselves superior to agriculture.
Prejudice Proves Unfounded.
Within a few years, however, this
prejudice proved to be unfounded. The
country was extremely fertile and the
Jewish colonists brought agriculture
and'cattle rearing to a high state of
perfection, and developed those virtues which colonization tends to bring
out. -
At presen, the speaker explained, |
there are about 42 colonies, which is
not a great many, but the revival of
the Hebrew language proves the
strength of the movement. This language had practically died out, like
Latin, the colonists each speaking his
own language, but Hebrew has now
been revived to Buch an extent that
It Is not only spoken by the highly
News Agency Changes Hands.
On Feb. 1, however, what is hereafter to be known as the Kokusai T����-
shln, or international agency, took
charge of the Reuter business In Japan and its officers were established
elsewhere. But the latest development of the investigation ls the -ureal
of the leading director of tbe Nippon
Rempo Tsuchln and the foreign editor.
It is alleged that these arrest9 ware-
made in connection with the Pooler
case, and now the statement is public
property that the amount paid by Hia-
mens and Schuckert to Mr. Poo lev
was divided among other newspaper
men. representatives of agencies or
foreign correspondents.
This Is explained by the statement
that the man who stole the papers
from Siemens offered them for sale to
a number of people, newspaper men in
Tokio or correspondents and that it
was part of Siemens' bargain that all
of these should be silenced. How
much truth there is In this it is impossible to say but Pooley, before his arrest, said he got a certain amount of
money from Siemens as "expense-sand that he divided this "expense"
Altogether the whole situation is
one that makes the position of the
few foreign correspondents resident in
Tokio a little more difficult than it
was before. Fortunately most of these
are long time residents and are well
known to the Japanese.
Paris, May 4.���Four years ago a
young Sapnlard called Catala came to
Paris with the fixed determination
to make everybody happy at a rate or
about a sovereign each, the total of
which contributions would result in
his own beatitude. He styled himself
"Presidents of the Knights of Mystery." .
He offered to sell the secrets of i
cess, infallible love philtres, and the
eiuca^ bu';v=tin sr. .=ieir����ft
and by mothers to their children
Until 1908 the inscriptions on poBt-
offices in Jaffa were ln three modern
languages, but in 1911 Hebrew was
added, and now the postoffice officials, who are not jews, but Aus-
trians, all speak Hebrew.
Hebrew Used in the Softools.
Hebrew is the language of the lower
schools, there are Hebrew secondary
schools, and in Jerusalem and Jaffa
there are Hebrew preparatory schools,
the certificates of which gain entrance
to the German and French universities.
The Deutsch Juedische Huefsvereln,
which took an important part in helping to further the use of the Hebrew
language, was opposed to it as a means
of public instruction, but the agitation
caused by this opposition was bo great
on the part of both teachers and pupils
that it nearly led to a revolt and the
schools of the Huelfsvrreln had to be
temporarily closed. In the end the
society was forced to give in and to
accept Hebrew as the official language in all departments.
Another speaker stated that the language movement had been instigated
by Germany for political purposes,
l.orel Kitehe'ner Is quoted as having
said that he did not like to have German agents near the Egyptian frontiers. There are other signs that some
of the European powers will make
use of the Jews in Palestine us their
political agents. This speaker concluded by saying the Jews are one. |
and in Palestine only Jewish politics
are allowed, and Zionism the world
over should further these politics.
Situation   at   Tokio   Declared   to   Be
Worse as Result of Recent Ex-
posurec There.
these, being wares difficult to buy in
the ordinary market, found a rapid
and enormous Bale. The "Cabalistic
Institute," existed only on paper, bat
the correspondence addressed to its
manager at various postes resUntes
was prodigious.
One day the great magician vanished, leaving his disciples lamenting, tor
the desired miracles were never produced, and the gold pieces had been
juggled out of their original pokcets
never to return.
Some fifty complaints are now
lodged against Catala, but the majority of the dupes are too ashamed of
their folly to publish it. The Spaniard
has now returned to Spain, and all
traces ot him have been lost.

Tokio. .May 4.���Recuit scandalous
developments have not Improved the
position of the foreign newspaper correspondent In Japan. It Is quite true
that what Is here known as the "Pooley case" has in connection with what
is misnamed the "navy scandal" been
exaggerated out of all proper proportion. Pooley, however, has his place
in the record which Japan would wish
to erase. For similar reasons all the
other nationalities shrink from reference to the case.
"With singular obtuseness, what is
here known as "the foreign press" has
had much to say about the ill-treatment of the "foreigner" incarcerated
In connection with a case reeking with
bribery, corruption and blackmail,
with all of which, unfortunately, foreign business men resident In Japan
have been connected. As a result
newspaper correspondents from
abroad will bo able to reinstate themselves only  with  difficulty.
Recovery of Papers Sought.
It can no longer be doubted that the
representative of the great firm of
Siemens and Schuckert of Berlin paid
Andrew Pooley, the representative of
Reuter's Telegraph company, the sum
of ��5000, nor can it be doubted that
this amount was paid for the recovery
of certain documents stolen from the
office of Clemens and Schuckert and
bought by Pooley. Siemens and
Schuckert have now instituted a civil
suit against Pooley nnd are seeking
to recover the amount mentioned. In
connection with this suit the company
secured a garnishee order on Pooley's
bank account.
Reuter's Telegram company, on the
other hand, has commenced proceedings against Siemens and Schuckert to

Duke ��* Portland   Invites  One  Thousand Guests to Celebrate  His
Heir'a Coming of Age.
l^indon, Hay 3, Welbeck Abbey,
NotUngUanishiro. world famous for its
vast underground apartments, was the
Bcene last week of a memorable ball
to celebrate the coming of age of the
Marquis of Tltckfield, eldest son of
the Duke and Duchess of Portland.
Over  1000 guests  were'  Invited,
The dancing took place In the won
derful undergrounel picture' gallery,
which has been described as "the largest and most magnificent private
room in England."
All the subterranean marvels of
Welbeck are due lo the eccentric fil'tn
Duke of Portland, '.vim was consumed
with ��� passion for privacy Prom his
nil I taislne to the estate in 1854 to his
death la 1879 he spent, il is said. $25,-
00O.0M 1st creating new wonders for
Wetback. Of course the most cole-
bratetf is the picture gallery. It is
������ntiraly helow ground, excavated from
solid clay, 160 feet long, 64 feet wide
and 22 feet high. Al night eighteen
e xqutslte glas.- chandeliers reveal
priceless old masters that cover
walls. The roof Is level with the
ele'n above, and one can walk on
-���oft  green  furl'  without   knowing
; beauties below.
Tonight   pink   was   the     prevailing
tone.    The chairs, divans and settees
I were pink and i:olel, harmonizing with
the   beautiful   flowers  from   the   Wei-
beck conservatories    'Ireat  palms altruist hid the orchestra.
The rose corridor,  I r.n  yards  long.
) had been arrange ii under the supervision of the Duchess e,;  Portland, as
i a sitting room, lle'i". tev>, pink was
the prevailing tone. Exotic plants
lined  the  corridor.
Underground apartments ordlnarllj
used as storerooms were converted In
| to comfortable smoking rooms richly
I decorated and artificially heated
S''npi"T was served by the   Welbeck
staff, re-lnforced by over 100 waiters
it   was served  In  three  underground
moms adjoining the picture gallery.
Four hundred persons sat  down tc
suppe rata   time'.
The    guests    Included   many   wi II
; known  society  persons  anel    leading
! residents of the county.
(ladies ol the Tulle' Re>d Cross society,
[who made a house to house visitation
of every dwelling, rich and poor, ask-
in-; how much each inhabitant would
be disposed to contribute In time of
war In money, clothes, furniture, ctr-.,
for wounded who might be' brought
' Into Tulle hospital.
It uas understood that any surplus
| would b>' given back to the donors, If
; no  use   was  found   for  it.    The  very,
' poore st. insisted on adding their mites,
even If It was only a blanket, a  pair
| of shoi-s. or a cotton night-cap. When ,
they had finished the ladles added upi
| the result of their original quest, and '
i found that the hospital was not nearly I
I large enough to contain all the articles i
promised.    This,  at  any  rate,   is  en !
couraglng, for in actual war time the
j offering would certainly be more- plen ;
i tit'iil than  for a fictions case.
Paris,   May

An   Interesting  ex-
b) )'ti made by the

onel and Spring in ten minute's," says
the- young clerk of modest m<'uns from
tin' business district, who is showing
ins girl friend what is generally
known as a  "g<>��ii time," "I'm going
to step up here and borrow a friend's
car, Then we'll have' a spin before
���,0'iig home."
"Good," replies the- girl, thinking
what an Influential young man her
tri end must !��'. to burrow a ear at
any time or place.
Promptly al the end of ten minutes
a big touring car purrs up to the curb
where she Is standing. She is lifted
in, aud. after a halfhour's spin about
town, she is taken home. Then ru*
young man flings away about four or
five blocks, runs the car up alongside the curb, steps out and walks to
his boarding house, half a mile distant, whistling something catchy he
heard at the' .show
In the meantime an Irate doctor or
lawyer, or business man, is saying
torrid things over the telephone to
the cool and suave clerk at police
Sputters Complaint to  Police.
"I left my car standing In front of
my office, and when I came out tea
minutes later it was gone!" sputters
the owner of the car. "This is the
third time in the last six weeks that
my car has been 'borrowed.' I want
it  found at once!"
Two or three' hours later, or maybe
the' next day. the car's owner is in-
formed that his machine' has been
picked un. and he can have It. as soon
as he calls for it.
"This has got to s'op." said Chief
of Police Griffiths yesterday. "Prom
three to a  dozen  reports of such do
ings  come   in   every   night,  ye't   it   Is
almost Impossible t'i nab the offend
1 >:rs, unless they happen to be seen by
I the owner when driving away    I have
j persistently urged owners of cars to
| buy  locks and  chains for their cars,
j and, in addition, to remove the keys
to the ignition.    A little care on their
part  would  prevent    this    annoyance
that is growing greater every day."
"Borrowing" Autos a Habit.
"About  one   in   every   twenty    are
caught 'borrowing' automobiles," said
Prosecuting Attorney John P. Murphy.
"There seems to be a tendency to give
the offenders  the    best    of the  deal
when they are brought into court.    If
some one was to steal a horse and be
caught, he might be sent to the penitentiary, but  the theft of a $5000 car
peems  t0   be   not  half  so  serious  as
stealing a bottle of milk,   I shall endeavor li) make    an example of Ihe
next offender caught stealln; an auto
���High school boys out for a lark or
young fellows who ar(. showing their
'best girl' a good timo, are the ones
who make a habit of borrowing cars.
A few eases are found where men
who have been drinking have borrow-
led cars, but it is the young, Irresponsible class who are really to blame,
All they need is a key to the Ignition
I box, and they can run off with any
machine in town."
Carranza Not Considered.
Washington, May 4. General Car-
ranza and the constitutionalists today
were practically ellmlniated from proceedings of the South American envoys who have undertaken to settle,
the Mexican situation by diplomacy.
In a telegram to Mr. Carranza tho
mediators announced that In view of
his refusal to agree to an armistice
with (ienernl Huerta. they withdrew
their invitation to him to send ii
personal representative to participate
in  the mediation  negotiations.
