On the .streets this week, however,
there Is sot tie talk of the elections,

While matters are yet rather indefinite, it Is understood tliat a

will lie norminited, alternates appoint

drawn up. The latter to -lie submitted to ihe nominees, and if accepted, a fitfit will be put up to elect

Of course, as yet, this is only plan

scored most points, and (Ireat Britain the next highest nuiii'tier, ami
it is no idlo excuse to say our team

BILLIARDS
Next to rifle shooting there is perhaps .no sport or pastime that requires the nerves to be under control
more than billiards. In somo
aHo'rtrs, such as running,'cyoltyc,, rowj
ing, etc., it is olten declared that a
man is all the letter il his nerves are
a hit "on edge," so to speak. Coolness and great control, however, arc
big (actors in lhc game ol billiards
and the ability to play up to one's
best form under adverse citcumstanc-
cs, is a geml gift. Perhaps there
is no player who shows to better advantage than Ii«man, when lt comes
to n tight finish In n match lor money. Ile bus long been noted Ior
these traits, and again showed toad-
wantage during the final session ol
his match against Dingle. Thc latter was trying to concede 25,000
start in 1500(1 nitrtt when the Inst session was entered on, he was only 203
points behind. Iiiiunii, however,
rose to the occasion' and finally won
by 414 points. Onc can always admire determination und aggressiveness and it was these traits which
btouinht Drake, Hawkins, Raleigh,
Nelson, Clive Marlborough and Wellington to tlie lore. Sport does
much to keep alive this spirit, and if,
will he a sorry day lor the Empire

MODERN
WOMAN
A curious diUcrencc has developed
Itsoll between the feminine sex of
America and their English and
French sisters. Perhaps the iliftc,-
ence may he called psychological,
perhaps not. ' At any rate an attempt by English hostesses to popularize in London society the women's luncheon party hns resulted in
lint failure. Britisli society women
light shy ol it as a deadly bore,
while American women find they ncv
er have so much pleasure as in unconventional gatherings of their own
sex, where they may he their true
selves, tree of the sometimes em-
Inirrassing presence ol man. sUi Interchange .of wit and eiitertsijiiini,' in-
loi'insijtKMi—not gossip or scandal,
either—with music, dainty luncheon
aud recitations and sometimes dancing nl the high kicking order, Just
among us girls, as lt were, constitutes u programme that American
women get sincere pleasure out of.
lt seems the women of European society consider there can he no good
lime-without men around to Hatter
then ami be, attentive to them. It is
n sign of the growing brain breadth
ol our women Unit trhcy are fond ol
and iiitterestod in their own sex.
Lite is broadening out belore them
gloriously, and the lact that they
find so much happiness in onc another's society, meeting, upon the
common ground of united sisterly interests, shows how piuch Hlnvrty ami
opportunity -have done Ior tlic sex
in America. A new spirit aniotii;
womankind has developed, and those
of other lands can only stare stupidly and wonder how women can And
one another so interesting.
Mrs. Harriet Edwards Paycs expresses in the New York World hoi
conclusion thjat thc old idea is last
dying oul that women who wed may
mot continue to earn money alter
marriage. She says girls are Inclined more and more when they fall in
love to marry Uicir sweetheart!,
take a short honeymoon and return
to Uie remunerative trade that was
theirs before. Mrs. Paycs asks this
question' "Need we, just because
some in.in loves us sufficiently in
marry us, allow him tn support us
alien wc are so eminently capable of
supporting ourselves!"

Extract    Irom    editorial in  New
York American:
Iliisirniids should wear hig golden
wedding rings, Jusl, Ihe same, as their)
wives do. is there any reason why
n woman should go around uitli a
ring on her linger saying t« all the
world, i am dlsflosoil ol. Don't look
I at mi'. 1 belong to a greiilloiiian, and
| if you show the slightest interest I
will irall the police,' unless her husband lines the same'! We believe it
would lie even better Ior men to
wear wedding rings than tho women
to wear them. For innlancc, the
ring would save a iot of explanation
when a senslblo man is asked to
waste his money iu drink or in
gambling or otherwise. Ho would
simply lilt, up his hand with tlie wed-,
ding ring on it, looli solemn and go
his way. The others would hang
.guilty heads ami say to themselves
at once, 'He's got a wife and children ut home,- and he has jictter ways
of sponding|bls money than with us.'
At the very first mooting ot the
Russian ikminn Jlihilefl, a working-
man, aroused enthusiasm by a
speech taarortng expioprlation of
laud for ail toilers, irrespective ul
sex. Would it not be queer ifRui-
sian peasant women got tbeir rights
ahead of their sisters in so-called
free America?
