There was much ccremonw obserfd nt

his majesty. And the last time they
knelt they put the palms of their hands
together, rubbed their little fingers In
the dirt and then transferred the dirt
from their little fingers to their fore
heads or temples and clapped their
hands. This ceremony they ropeated three
tlmos at the last kneeling place, and the
king answered by putting the palms of
his hands across each other, with the
fingers of the right hand well above the
thumb and Index finger of the left hand,
and waving them. If the King did not
answer thus, or If he thrust out his foot

chiefs who failed to Bend him occasional
presents were also coldly received, and
the waving toes reminded them of their
delinquencies. No written account waB
kept, but the king, like all nutlves, had a
remarkable memory for what was owing
him and never forgot when a debt was
to be paid or a present was due. Chiefs
and noblemen had to render homage to
the King the same as ordinary men, but
not every time they went Into his presence.

ESCAPES IN BASS FIDDLE
Adventures of a Rumanian From the
Dangers of War.
When war Is In the air on the continent
of Europe a man who Is liable for military
service often finds It very difficult to
escape from the country. In the Wide
World Magazine T. J. Thomas tells the
story of the escapo of one Petru Cocan
from Hungary when, on account of the
Balkan crisis, tho decree had gone forth
that no man between tho ages of 16 and
K should leave tho country without a
Cocan, who was a Rumanian by birth
nnd had lived In America, could not get
n passport. He then went to the agent
of a transatlantic line nnd bought a ticket
for America on the assurance that tile
agent would get him out of the country.
After several days of suspense Coran,
with three other fugitives, was sent to
a place near the border, where they were
met according to agreement by a band of
Rumanians disguised as gipsy musicians,
four of whom carried huge bass viols.
The backs were removed from the viols
and In each there was a small seat
Cocan and his fellow fugitives took their
I places, the backs were fastened on the
I viols nnd again the musicians set out
for the border. All passed the guard
I safely except Cocan. His bearer got Into
a dispute with a soldier of the guard the
quarrel waxed violent, the bass viol fell

BASEBALL IN AUSTRALIA
Plnyers There Tnke Their Sports

of his sporting experiences while doing

remarked McGuIre, "the Australians
surely do take their sports seriously. In

Total Value of Late Pub
lisher's Holding Placed at
$18,637,545 in Report to
NEW YOniC, Sept. 23 The report of
tho rcnflprnlsnl of the cslnto of Joseph
Pulitzer, ordered by Surrogalo Cohnlnrf,
was submitted yesterday to the Surro
gate's Court by Transfer Tax Appraiser
Joseph I. Berry.
Tho report shows that the gross
valuation o'f tho estate has been In
creased from 18,62(5,116 to $20,3G&,r85, nnd
tho net from 1G,8I3,ISI to $18,637,515, n net
Increase of $1,791,061, Tho cstlmntcd
amount of the total tax Is $335,000, Before
tho first nppralsal $410,000 waB paid Into
tho State Treasury In order to take nd
vantage- of Iho 6 per cent, rebate, so there
will bo a rotund of approximately $75,000.
Iti order to get at the actual value of
tho Associated Prbss franchises held by
tho Press Publishing Company (the New
York World) and the rulltzcr Publishing
Company (tho St. Louis Post-Dispatch),
nnd to cstlmnto the good will of these two
newspapers, owned by Mr. Pulitzer, much
testimony was taken,
After showing thnt there had been no
change In tho nppralsal of the real
estate fixed In tho original report nt
$1,278,000, Mr. Berry placed the valuo of
4090 shares of the Press Publishing Com
pany stock at $3,267,631, or $651,73 a share,
nnd tho valuo of 9161 shares of tho
Pulitzer Publishing Company slock nt
(2,677,262, or $292.15 a share. In thus ap
praising the stock, Mr. Berry Btatcs, he
has added to the appraised value of the
corporation's tangible property a "good
will" valuo consisting of the value of
tho 'Associated Press memberships,
$150,000, nnd all other elements of good
will. In the original report tho franchises
were not valued as such.
Tho npprnHal Is arrived nt In part by
taking tho average annual earnings for
four years preceding Mr. Pulitzer's djcath
ns a basis for capitalization
One hundred and twenty thousand dol
lars Is allowed as an expenditure for
bonuses to employes. The appraiser nlso
considered the restrictions upon the sale
of tho stock of tho Press Publishing Com
pany Inserted by the decedent In his will.
In nppralslng the value of tho PreBS
Publishing Company tho nverago im
nttal net earnings are set nt S'll.lH
These deductions are nllowed: Slxtv per
cent, of Increase In the cost of white
paper, $210,000: allowance for decedent's
services, $100,000; 6 per cent, on capltnl
Invested, 121,330, and 6 per cent, on vnlue
of Associated Press franchise, J2S.SO0. Tho
total reductions are thus $160,130, and the
average net earnings as a basis for 10
per cent, capitalization, $S1 ISO.
The good-will, originally iipm-.nl-od nt
$1,000,000, Is brought down to $811,S02. The
nppralscd value of nsnoL' rvei llnlnii
Is $2,022,511, as In tho original report. This
Includes two Associated 1'icsa lionda
$1000 par value, nnd makes the ti.tal
valuo $3,307,671 gross nnd $3,267,0Sl not.
The nppralser states that the acrago
nnnunl not earnings of the rulltzer Pub
lishing Company for four joara woio
$I0S,4M. Tho nvcrage net earnings, Io3S
deductions, are $196,411.
Under the new appraisal the total per
sonal property Is valued at $1i.Oi7.9m
Thl", with the real estate, valued at
$3,27S,000, makes tho totul $20,3.'iJ,9S3 gross.

when building aggregated $12,OS9,4'il, ac

The gieat building boom which has

Is widespread nnd general In character.
The number of permits Issued so far this
