THE CZAR'S SIMPLE LIFE.
Motoring, Tennis and Picnics His
Diversions at Peterhof.
I learn from a very high authority that
the Ufe the Czar Is now leading at Peter?
hof is most quiet and simple, and that
His Majesty is always In the best of
spirits. It Is true that since the Incident
of the cannon shot nt tlio ceremony of
the blessing of the Neva, in January last.
he lins been llttltS better thai) a prisoner
in Ills palace. But there Is little In his
conversation or manner to Indicato that
he finds life there Irksome.
When not engaged In the affairs of
government, he Is very often to be seen
In an nutomolille, nnd generally drives
himself. He spends moreover, a good
deal of time playing tennis, and his en?
thusiasm for the game was shown the
oilier day In an amusing fashion.
The court dentist had come to examine
the teeth of the Empress, and tho Czar,
during tlie brief Interview, appeared threo
times to ask Her Mnjesty If she was not
yet ready to continue playing.
Tho Czar Is also fond of making little
excursions with his family to the nelgli
. boring Castle Ropscho. He generally
takes his son and the. little princesses
with bini In his mot'?r car. the Empress
accompanying them on horseback.
Thero In the castle grounds, watched
over Incessantly by a numerous liody
guard. the Emperor loves to play with
Ills children. The I'ttle princesses may
often bo seen running barefooted over
tho lawns, playing ?11 sorts of gnmr?s
with their father, while tho Empress sets
out the lunch, which has been lirnught In
a basket, anil An which nil do hearty Jus?

in tho grand stand sat thousands of

Among the State departments repre?

Dr. David 13, Salmon, chief of the Bureau

tion, and it has been accepted, to talco
offeut on October 1st,
Tlio resignation was announced by Boo
rotary Wilson at noon to-day, but lio de?
clined to stalo whether the severance Is
duo to thd charges Hied recently against
Dr. Salmon. Theso charges rulated to
the connection which Dr, Salmon had had
with George ID. Howard In the printing
business, and which later resulted In the
organiza lion of the Howard Label Com-'
patiy, which holds the contract for sup?
plying meat Inspection lags to-'tho gov?
ernment. The relations of Dr. Salmon
and Mr, Hovfard *,veru Investigated by
Solicitor McCabe, of the Department of ?
Agriculture, and tho doctor was exoner?
ated, It having been shown Hint ho with?
drew from the company soon after the
llrst contract was received from the gov?
ernment. Charges were preferred against
Dr. Salmon "also In connection with the
meat Inspection service. He wan exon?
erated also on these charges, but the
report was not accepted ns satisfactory
by the packing concerns whose applica?
tions for meat Inspection had been de?
Whllo tho announcement was made that
tlio resignation was purely voluntA-y,
there Is a well authenticated rumor thai
President Roosevelt was not satisfied with
the conditions shown by the Investigation.

It is absolutely necessary that the piano be a
strictly high grade? scientifically constructed in?
strument, equal to the delicate pianissimo, and
alike to depicting the fire and spirit of the
musician's fancies.. What* would the thrilling
works of Liszt sound like on some of the tin pans
that, disguised and spirited in among reputable
pianos, are represented to the buying public as
high grade, sweet-toned instruments? Such
pianos will prove their worthlessness before they
have had even ordinary usage.
In buying a piano be sure that the
purchase is made from a company that '
bears a reputation for selling strictly
t first-class instruments and no other.
The Cable Company's trade mark is
recognized the world over as an absolute
guarantee that their instruments are
standards of piano manufacture.
