A Popular Spoon.
Ono of tho most unique souvenirs that have
been designed by any Washington firm of
ato is that of tho "Uncle Sam Souvenir
Spoon," by Mr. J. Karr, our well-known
jeweler, 915 Pennsylvania avenue. The exe
cution of this familiar figure, which forms tho
handle, is very fine, tho peculiarities of figure,
pose, features, and costume being accurately
depicted. Tho figure stands on a miniaturo
hemisphere representing tho earth. The
significance of this arrangement Is apparent.
Within the bowl is a view of the dome of the
Capitol. Made in tea, coffee, and orange
spoon sizes, in sterling silver. It is con
sidered the thing to present these spoons as
birthday gifts and as other tokens of remem
brance, We are informed by Mr. Karr that
these spoons meet with a ready sale among
straugers visiting the Capitol, purchasing
them as a souvenir,

Troubles Experienced Along Our North
Chicago, Juno 13. Special Treasury Agent
Soehgen yesterday returned from an extensivo
trip'in thoNorthwest,whitherhowent to make
an exhaustive study of the customs service
along tho Canadian border. Mr. Soehgen
found that tho number of revenue aoronts is
totally Inadequate to copo with tho shrewd
Canadian traders, who easily smugglo Cana
dian nnd other foreign goods across tho bor
der at unprotected points. Around St. Vin
cent, Minn., Mr. Sqehgcn found tho country
inhabited by a class of Canadians who, It is
said, are thoroughly in sympathy with their
brothron across the border in their efforts to
smugglo goods into tho United States. At this
and othor points, owing to the smallness of
tho customs service, thousauds of bushels of
potatoes are rushed Into tho United States
without,paying duty. Tho tariff on potatoes
boing 2o cents a bushol, tho loss to tho Gov
ernment Is considerable. Tho inducement to
smuggle potatoes is groat, too, as thoy brlna
good prices in tho States.
In addition to potatoes agricultural imple
ments are brought across tho line in great
quantities. Tho cooperation of a largo class
of the community with tho smugglers makes
It extremely difficult to detect the guilty
Another trouble thft open Northwestern
border presents Is tho importation of Chinese
and other foreigners. Tho rough, mountain
ous country renders it easy to escape tho
vigilanco of tho limited number of custom
house officers, and many objectionablo for
eigners from Europe are al60 crossing Into tho
States to avoid the searching inquiries at New
York. Opium smuggling, too, is frequently
reported from tho BauiT, Moose Jaw, and
othor Isolated places. Mr. Soohgen's report
will at once bo sent to Washington.
WORLiD'S FAIR ROWS.
Ilontcrt Conflicts Between National and
Iiocul Hoards at Chicago.
Chicago, Juno 13. There is considerable
surprise over tho failure of the World's Fair
board of directors to confirm the appointment
of M. E. Stone as chief of tho foreign depart
ment. On receipt of notice that tho vote on
his confirmation was a tie, Mr. Stone sent a
letter to Director General Davis declining to
allow tho further uso of his name. In this let
ter Mr. Stone said he had a positive dislike for
taking up "the arduous and thankless work
in store for any one who assumed the man
agement of the foreign department. This was
especially true when I came to understand
the existing differences between the local and
national board respecting the question of
jurisdiction. And the feeling of reluctance
was by no means dissipated by the perfect in
undation of applications for places in the for
eign bureau. Tho pressure for positions by
members of tho local board, acting on behalf
of their friends, did not promise well for an
efficient and business-like administration."
Mr. Stone further said that it was plainly
stated. In the act of Congress that the national
commission should have charge of all foreign
affairs. The directory has been assuming th at
A local paper says: "The board of control
of tho national commission received the news
of tho directors' action on appointments of
tho director general, and spent some time In
discussing the matter. That they were warm
was evident. One of them said that if neces
sary tho board of control will remain in per
manent session to run tho foreign department.
It is probable that the board of control will
not permit the director general to send any
agents abroad who may now bo members or
officers of either the commission or the
SCARCITY OF FOOD IN PERU.
Enormous Demands for tho Fighting
Armies in Chili.
Panama, June 4. The President of Peru
has issued a decree admitting free of duty into
the republic the following articles: Liye
sheep and cattle, dried meats, salt beef, dried,
smoked, or pickled fish, wheat and corn, po
tatoes and all other vegetables, eggs, cheese,
chestnuts, peas, beans, rice, rape seed, herbs
and spices, and has decreed an export duty of
twenty soles, silver, per head on cattle ox
ported, and two soles per head on sheep ex
ported. This action, as announced in tho de
cree, is in consequence of the scarcity and
consequent high price of food In Peru, caused
by tho floods that havo followed the heavy
rains throughout the country, and by the
enormous demands for all forms of food
caused by tho war In Chill.
The export of provisions from Peru to tho
armies of tho insurgents along the coast of
Chill has so reduced the stock of flour and
meat that speculators have taken advantage
of tho situation and advanced the price of
beef to forty cents per pound in tho Lima and
Callao markets, where flour and bread are
held at similar prices.
Another luu'ffe Deal.
Of all tho delectable suburban subdivisions
that hove been made in tho vicinity of the
city, there Is none which possesses more agree
able features than Fort Meyer Heights, oppo
site the city on the Virginia side. In a late
issuo of The Hekald it was noticed that
Messrs. Robinson & Lodge had subdivided a
largo tract of land and tuat the lots had sold
liko hot cakes. Cottages are in process of
erection on theso lots, and it is fair to presume
that others who own lots will build cottages.
But, at any rate, believing in tho future of tho
enterprise and encouraged by the sale of the
lots, Messrs. Georgo P. Robinson and B. K.
Trimmer bought thJrty-threo acres adjoining
Fort Meyer for $13,000. What, per
haps, had Its effect upon these
capitalists was that the electric road
to Mount Vernon, under tho auspices of well
known capitalists, is an accomplished fact.
But apart from that is the question of homes
to bo provided for at reasonable rates, and the
fact of near and reasonable communication
with tho Capital City. In all tho heights
about the city there is no more desirable lo
cation than tho Fort Meyer Heights. As has
been stated above, they are oasily accessible
and In point of good water and all that makes
llfo enjoyable they cannot bo surpassed. It
happens also that they havo historic value.
Some of the greatest of the episodes of the
Civil War transpired on those hills, When
McCIellan had his Interview with Stanton
and Lincoln, and when Scott gave way to Mc
CIellan, the very spot of the Fort Meyer sub
division lately made was tho scene of their

Solid lor Blaj. McKinley.
Dayton, Ohio, June 13. Montgomery
County Republicans in convention this morn
ing elected a solid delegation of twenty-three
for McKinley for Governor. Resolutions to
that effect were carried unanimously as the

Miami-Valley. Hon. Robert M, Nevin, Maj.
BIckham, and Maj. Bowles headed the delegation.
HIGH SCHOOIi FIELD DAY.
The Sports a Great Succ as nntl Marked
With Spirited Contents.
Yesterday afternoon the High Schobl Ath
letic Association held Its second field day on
the grounds of tho Y. M. C. A.
A very large crowd was In attendance, one
half of whom were lady students and friends
of the High School. Tho park was in excel
lent condition, tho turf for jumping was
evenly broken, tho running track was smooth
and hard; in short, everything was favorable
to make the day tho success it wae.
Tho officers of tho day were Messrs. W. A.
Wo s and Clare Harding, tlmors: Mr. F. B.
Walker, referee; Messrs. J. E. Puch, A. M.
Catlin.and Harry Ward, judges; Mr. Harry
English, clerk of the course; Mr. Carl S.
Keyser, marshal, aud Mr. C. E. Goodwin,
The winner of each contest received a silver
medal and the winner of the highest number
wa8 awarded a cold medal and the title of
best all-around athlete of tho High School.
m Promptly at 4:30 the sports commonced.
The first event was the hundred yards dash.
At tho start In tho finals tho men were paired
with Taussig and Rose In the lead. They
camo in with Rose first, nnd SmarUhird.
Pole vault Much interest centered in this
contest from tho fact that Roso and Gregg,
the only competitors, were loading athletes of
the Y. M. C. A. and the C. A. C. Professor
Crossley, of the latter organization, was on
hand to coach his pupil, Grecg. but Professor
Sims was unavoidably absent from the city.
Both men jumped much higher than was ex
pected, but finally Gregg won, clearing 9 feet,
while Rose's best was 8 foot 9 inches.
Running high jump Cockerell dropped
out at 4 feet 11 inches. Gregg and Taussig
tied at 5 feet. In the toss Taussig won.
220-yard hurdlo Keyes and Cockerell and
Rose and Lanman were tho starters. Roso
took tho lead and won easily. Time, 34
seconds. Keyes second and Lanman third.
Standing long jump Cockerell won this
without much difficulty, clearing 9 feet 1 inch,
to Rose's 8 feet 7 inches.
Running long jump Taussig won with 18
feet 15 Inches; Gregg second, 17 feet 11 inches.
Quarter mile run There was great cheering
for McRoberts when ho came down the home
stretch in the lead, for "Mac" is the most
popular boy of the High School. Taussig
passed him, however, just in time, with WIl
lett a bare second. Time, CO seconds.
Bicycle race This was a now departure,
but proved very Interesting. There were
three starters, Hamlin and Wayile on safeties
and Hensey on an upright. Hensey would
have undoubtedly won had the race occurred
on a first-class track. But as it was his wheel
would tip at every Inequality and he came in
second; Walie first.
The hop, skip, and jump Rose won, cover
ing 38.8; Taussig second.
Putting the shot Johnson won, 28.3; Rose
Mile run Eight started, but only three
finished. Nicholson first, Cockrell second,
and Sommer third.
Throwlne the base ball. There were many
contestants, and for a long time the Issue was
in doubt. Keys finally won, throwing the
sphere 2S0 feet; McRoberts second, only ten
feet behind. J
In the contest for general excellency there
was sharp rivalry between Taussig, of the
Georgetown Hieh School, and Rose, of tho
Central School. The result was in doubt until
the last event was over with, when it was found
that Rose had won the medal, making 24 points;
Taussig -second with 21, and Cockerell, first
year's champion, third with 15.
THE BRIGHTWOOD PARK.
Its Situation as a Business Investment.
Tho managers of the Brightwood Park en
terprise, Messrs. Herron ARamey, 1307 F
street northwest, are worthy of the success
they havo met with. " It is one of tho best
subdivisions witnin reach of the city centre.
Its short distance from the Departments and
business portion of the city is greatly in its
favor. Then, too, it can be reacned by street
cars for one faro from any part of the city or
Georgetown. It lies between Brightwood and
Magnolia avenues, with unsuroassed dram
ago but 2,000 feet distant from the Rock
Creek National Park, in connection with
which It expects to obtain, atan early date, tha
city supply of gas and water. The Govern
ment will soon lay a brick pavement
on Brightwood avenue, along tho entire west
front of the subdivision. Refined people
havo found the park offered a desirable home,
and accordingly tho lots for 5, 7, and 10 cents
per foot, on easy monthly payments, are
meeting with rapid sale. Then, too, cottages
can be erected on their lots and paid for in
monthly installments of .$20, $25, $30, and
$35 smaller monthly payments than would
pay rent for the same class of houses In the
city. Herron & Ramey, 1307 F street north
weet, aie the managers of tho subdivision,
and thoy are ready at all times to convey in
tending purchasers to and from the park.
The managers havo met with a success that is
phenomenal in the sale of real estate In the
city and its suburbs. There are thousands of
people, particularly those In Government em
ploy, who will' take advantage of this oppor
tunity. It would seem from tho above state
ment (and It can be relied upon) that there is
no easier way to obtain a homo on eaBy terms.
And now is the time to purchase, for with
the activity in building that will soon charac
terize Brightwood Park prices will rapidly
advance. Within a few weeks fifteen to
twenty cottages will be in process of erection.
