The young wife of a Detroit man
who is not especially sweet-temper
ed, one day- approached her lord
concerning the matter of $100 or so,
says the Chicago Record-Herald.
'Td like to let yon have it, my
dear," began the husband, but the
fact is, I haven't that amount in
the bank this morning-that is to
say, I haven't that amount to spare,
inasmuch as I must take up a note
for $200 this afternoon.
"Ob, very well, James, said the
wife, with an ominous calmness.
"If you think the ma J who holds
the note can make things hotter
for you than I can, why do as you
She got the money.

BEAUTIES OF THE CAPITAL1,
James Bryce Writes About Some ofj
the Peculiar Features Possessed
It Is impossible to live in Washing*!
ton and not be struck by some pecul
iar features- and some peculiar beau-!
ties which the city possesses. In the;
first place, its site has a great deal'
that is admirable and charming.'
There is rising ground inclosing on
all sides a level space, and so making;
a beautiful amphitheater between hills,
that are rich with woods, writes'
James Bryce, late British ambassador,,
in National Geographic Magazine.
On the north, east and west sides of
Washington, and to some extent on
the sou ti. or Virginia, side also, al
though there the difficulties of loco-;
motion are greater on account -of thai
heavy mud in the roads, tho country
is singularly charming, quite as beau
tiful as that which adjoins any pf thai
great capital cites of Europe, exceptj
of course, Constantinople, with ita
No European city has io noble ai
cataract in its vicnity as the Great'
Palls of the Potomac-a" magnificent;
piece of scenery which you will, ot
course, always preserve.
Vienna has some picturesque coun
try, lillis and woods and rocka, within1
a distance of twenty-five or thirty
miles. London also has very pleasing!
landscapes of a softer type within;
about that distance; but I know of no
great city in Europe (except Constan
tinople) that has quite close, in its
very environs, Buch beautiful scenery
as has Washington in Rock Creek
Park and in many of the woods that'
stretch along the Potomac on the*
north and also on the south side with
the broad river in the center and rich
ly wooded slopes descending boldly to
it on each side.
Berlin stands in a sandy waste, per
fectly fiat, with here and there a
swampy pond or lake, and a sluggish
stream meanders through it. It has
become, through the efforts of the
government and its own citizens, aa
imposing city; but the environs caa
never be beautiful, because nature has
been very ungracious.
St. Petersburg has a splendid water
front facing its grand river, the Neva*
with Its vast rush of cold green water,
covered with ice in winter and chilling
the air and seeming to chill the land
scape in summer. That, however, ia
the only beauty St. Petersburg has.
The country is flat and in many places
waterlogged, owing to numerous pools
Paris, again, has some agreeable
landscapes within reach, but nothing
at all striking, nothing nearly so fine
In the lines of its scenery as the hills
that inclose the valley in which Wash
ington lies, and no such charm of a
still wild forest as Washington affords.
The same .thing may :3l,BffHar~of
Madrid. It stands on a level, and the
mountains are too distant- to come
effectively into the landscape, and Its
only water is a wretched little brook
let called the Manzanares.
Then there is our English London,
which stands In a rather tame coun
try. It ls true that there are some
ch.irming bits of quiet and pretty rui
ral scenery In Surrey and Sussex,
within a distance of from twenty to
thirty miles, and there are pleasing
beech woods covering the chalky hills
of Bucks. Yet nature has done noth
ing for London comparable to what
she haa done for Washington.
HORSES FIND A CHAMPION
Woman Protests Against Discordant
Bells on Necks or Wagon as Rack
ing Their Nerves.
Horses with ears attuned to music,
that have been tortured by the dis
cordant jangle of bells hung around
their necks or attached to the shafts
of the vehicle they draw, have found
a champion In a fashionably dressed
woman who the other day filed formal
protest against this form of cruelty
with Secretary John P. Heap of the
Humane society. Mr. Heap promised
he would investigate.
"It's perfectly dreadful," said the
woman, whose name Mr. Heap de
clined to give. Horses afflicted with
a lot of bells clanking and jangling
out of tune are doomed to become
nervous wrecks. It is a form of cru
elty that will break down the nervoca
system of any horse."
Mr. Heap assured his caller that he
appreciated the torture a musically in
clined horse may suffer. He may call
in a nerve specialist to aid in the in
vestigation', then devise some means
of determining what horses are music
BEE IN MOTION PICTURES
Department of Agriculture Scientists
Plan to Use Them as Lesson
Lifelike reproductions of the "busy
little bee improving each shining
hour," as it ls said in poesy, have been
obtained for the scientists of the de
partment of agriculture, who announce
they have completed a motion-picture
film of the winged worke/o engaged
in their industry of honey-making. The
film is declared one of the most re
markable ever taken by *.he depart
ment. It is to be included In the se
ries the government ls putting out for
educational purposes along agricul
L. S. Sullivan, for years the official
photogarpher of the department, is the
"man behiud the camera" to whom
credit is given. The film discloses tho
progress of honey-making from the
time the bee leaves the hive in search
of the blossoms until hie return with
tbs trophy of sweets.
