Railway Company was denied the
Alexandria County Lighting Company
yesterday by Judge J. B. T. Thornton,
of the Circuit Court of Alexandria Coun
ty, Bitting at Manassas. The merits of
the case -were not considered by the
court. It was stated, and the denial does
not materially affect the petition, which
will be taken to the Supreme Court of
Virginia at Richmond to-morrow.
The reported plans of the Maryland-
Virginia Railway Company to merge the
public utility corporations of the District
of Columbia with several of those in
Maryland and Virginia are stated In the

City, and in Alexandria and Fairfax
It Is set forth in the bill of the orator

The directors of the Arlington com
pany have approved the merger, and the
proposition is to be laid before the stock

ant, alleges that by unanimous vote of
the directors of the Arlington company,

the directors of the Arlington company
hae permitted Merlon E. Church, who
is named as defendant with the Arling
ton company, to acquire a majority of the
stock of the Arlington. If Church Is
permitted to ote ail the stock he has
bought, the orator alleges, he will vote
for the merger October 15.
The Alexandria company alleges that it
subscribed for a majority of the stock, as
It was entitled to do.

of the Alexandria company, and Francis
R. Welter, the duly authorized agent of
the Alexandria company and a director
of the Arlington company, made oath to

regarded as the charter of the company,
and In the event that any property Is
transferred to the new corporation as a
"going concern" It contains a reliable
auditor's report showing the net earnings
of the property for the three preceding
years. It also furnishes a valuation of

The passage of similar laws in this
country might prove of equal value, and
If It was not desirable to commltt the

In America the "new woman" was
first laughed at. and then good-naturedly
eccepted. The. Englishman, although he
has not conceded the place that she
would have, has accustomed himself to
her outbursts. In fact, he finds nothing
strange any more in dodging a piece of
lead pipe or a brick slung by brawny
female arms. He recognizes that thl- Is
merely a part of her argument, and lets

Germans for centuries have boastd
three things. Through all vicissitudes of
their political fortunes, they have held
these things up to their own admiration

they had a shadowy something called
"Gemute." a thine possessed by them
alone and which we can approximated
translate as "Inward life," and as their
crowning glory the Germans had the
original copyright on that greatest of
blessings "the Hausfrau."
The Hausfrau was not a clinging vine
of a woman. She was not a society star,
nor was she the pampered product of
the hothouse. She wasr't beautiful, and
she wasn't ugly. She wasn't noted for
her Intellectual abilities, nor was she
confidingly stupid. She didn't do roman

of deep emotions She was even thing

She was priceless, was this German
Hausfrau; one of those blessings to good

this, though he acknowledged her as
one of the three advantages that he had
over the rest of the world, and expected
her to last forever.
Well could he afford to become a great
scientist and devote ills time to the culti

All the little worries and cares of life
were absorbed and conquered by his
ample Hausfrau. She fed him on the

supervision and never asked to see such

murder of Count Kamerowskl by her ad

This amazing autobiography Is the his
tory of a once noble soul lost In the
labyrinths of passion. Against her fath

enteen years old. He proved to be a
debauchee, and slowly but cunningly led
his young and beautiful wife along the
easy path of a gay and slnrul life. In
