New York haa just had a carious epi
sode. One of the great hotels there
had a famous cook ; hut the poor man
was only getting (7500 a year, and so an
envious rival hired him for $10,000.
The heads of the two houses do not
speak or even nod when they meet, and
the occasion has been the talk at the
hotel tables all over the city.
All this is not only surprieing and
more or less amusing to common folk,
but it is curiously and deeply inntruc
tive. It ought by tbie time to be under
stood that all work well and skilfully
done is worthy of reward and praise and
will command a good place in the world
for him who can do it. It is no longer a
menial business to make men's or
women's clothing The tailor and the
male dressmaker are filling an honora
ble calling. Once it was the fashion to
gibe at them. Once the culinary craft
was not followed by men at all, but was
held to he a peculiarly and almost dis
tinctively womanly calling. But all
this ii going by, and the brave disciple
of the higher cult of cookery will soon
find his place alongside the worker in
the other branches of necessary and
therefore honorable labor.
A thoughtful writer has recently com
mented on thie problem this way :
"While we have been turning all our
educational efforts to the training of the
head, we have too far overlooked the
close connection betwoen brain and
stomach; now as the former develnpn
the latter becomes more exacting.
Nothing ie more obvioue than the plain
and "filling" cookery of the past no
longer satisfies ttie average American.
But with this knowledge open to ob
servation, how is it that a vastly im
portant field of industry is left almost
wholly unentered by Americans? To
be a fine cook ia no longer a matter of
mechanical or unintelligible work. Ttie
cook of today must be one of delicately
strung mental equilibrium; a nicely
blended compound of arl'ißt and chem
ist. At the best, the profession i- a
craft not unworthy the intellect ol the
| most self-reßpecfng American."
And why not? What, after all, in
this practical world, sstab'iPhen the
worth of anything, and its importance
and plaoe in the world? Is it not large
ly the very price it commands? Who
Bhall say that the man who makes a
great hotel famous as to it- table iB not
a man tt> be respected ? Has he not hon
ored his calling? Has he not exalted
nis office? Who shall laugh at this and
ridicule him for doing work that women
were supposed to do? Hie place in the
world may not be equal to that of the
passenger agent of a great railway, or
the head of a college, and yet It is not
easy to cay exactly how and why. The
fact is that we shall never get good
"help" in our houses, whatever the
classification may be, until work is done
in an honorable spirit, with a true sense
of its value and at a just price. The
days of the "farm band" and of the
drudge in the kitchen, who ie also maid
of all work, are passing away. Hours
oi labor, a better classification of the
tbingß to be done, a little time to one'B

The people most vitally concerned in
the running of households, the mis

the principles that underlie their difli

and to disabuse every mind of the teel

THE PARIS TRIBUNAL.
There seems to be an impression that
while the American case before the Ber

the sentimental side, it is not sure as to
the other phase—the doctrine of right.
Sir Charles Russell has been making tbe
most of this branch of the inquiry, and
it must be confessed that he has m de a
good showing, judging from the meagre
There is no sort of doubt that the
slaughter of seals has been fearful and
dreadful, as measured by any of tho laws
of good manners or morals or the ordi
nary rules of propriety. Tbe waste has
been excessive and the spirit displayed
by tbe poachers reckless and wanton.
And yet if we don't own the
seals when they stray away
from tbe rookeries on their
sea trips beyond the shore limits,
then we cannot assert absolute property
rights in them. It may be contra bono*
mores to capture and destroy them, but
there is no known tribunal in which a
question of manners or morals can be
tried. Ho far as the issue made up be
tween us and Great Britain, the issue
involved in the seizure of vessels outside
tbe shore limits is concerned, it becomes,
perhaps unfortunately for us, purely a
question of rights, and in which the one
largely discussed by Mr. Carter of coun
sel for the United States may not be
held to be a necessary and vital part.
The result will be, in any event, the
destruction of the present sealing indus
try, if tbe case goes against us. We Bhall
own the seals eight months in the year
becauee on our land, and we had better
mAke the most of the chance to realize
on them, rather ihan have them fall
into other bands when they are on their
travels—as Mr. Tracy's article so plainly
indicates would be our policy.

istic entertainments given in this city in
» long time was that by the ladies of St.
Paul's guild in St. Paul's parish hall last
Tuesday evening, for the benefit of the
free bed in St. Paul's hospital.
It consisted of a series of panel pic
tures, the state being so arranged in the
irontas to represent the gilded moulding
Ofa picture frame, and the ladies who
formed tbe pictures were towards the
center of the stage. The curtain was
drawn after the audience had seen each
picture, and a new one was then pre
sented. There was a large attendance,
and everything on the programme wae
The participants, who are all very
pretty ordinarily, looked sweeter btill as
each one stood in the frame and de
murely listened to the miny nice little
things whispered about them by the
delighted audience. The performance
was artistic from beginning to end, a
most model and elegant collection of
pictures being displayed. A noticeable
feature of the iiallery was the absence of
any antique w<>rve; nothing but bright,
new faces were to be seen.
The various young participants posed
with fitting grace aud enjoyed the per
formance as much as those in front of
the stage. In fact, each one wore an un
usually bright and healthy color on her
cheeks after the performance.
The following were the pictures:

THB ATHLETIC CLUB.
Making Great Preparations for the Next
As the date for tbe Athletic club field
day, next Tuesday, May 30th, ap
proaches, interest among the athletes
and lovers of sports rises towards fever
heat. It is probable that this will
prove to be about tbe biggest and best
event of the kind ever held in Southern
California. One of the features will be
the presence of a large number of new
men who can be looked upon to make
good records. The older men upon the
track are also working hard, and ssem
determined not to allow themselves to
be shoved from the pedestal of fame.
Athletic park presents in the after
noon a scene of unusual activity. All
classes of athletes are represented. The
wheelmen seem to be out in larger num
bers this year than in previous affairs,
and some good riding can be anticipated.
Tbe state champion, Mr. D. L. Burke,
recently fell and sustained such injuries
as to necessitate his retirement from tbe
track for tbe season and perhaps perma
There are plenty of young men left
with ambition, and who are training in
full proportion. Among these is L. W.
Fox of C ilton, who is looked upon by
many as the coming man. He is also a
very clever sprinter, and a close finißh is
anticipated when he meets Howard and
several other of the crack runners.
Among the other wheelmen are W. M.
Jenkins, W. A. Burke, Phil. Kitchen, T.
Q. Hall, H. B. Cromwell and Ruby.
Ibe sprinters are training well also.
Ed Germain is hard at it, as is Billy
Ward. Jim Ryan is running probably as
fast as any other man on the grounds.
Charley Howard was compelled to lay
oil"from training last week, but has about
set led down to hard work again. He
strained one of tbe tendons in his left
leg, and for a while his chances looked a

So we say, THIS IS YOUR LAST CHAN OK this season to secure a
6 or 10 acre tract at East Whittier in time to put it out in lemons, and
have them growing while you are at the World's Fair, and in another
year begin bearing, and tbe third bring you an income. One hundred
acres of lemons going in on the East Whittier tract this month. Se
cure your tract before it ie too late. We are still selling at $200 per
acre. Same land will cost you $250 next fall, sure. Why? Because
the improvements now being made will make it worth that. We de
cided not to raise the price this season, but next up she goes, sure;
and land in the frostlesa foothill lemon belt is none too plenty now.
At present we can supply you with choice lots; next season we may
not be able to do so, so secure them now while you can. Finest land,
finest water, finest location 1 Cheapest price, best schools, churches.
New cannery and all that go to make up an ideal location. Again we
say, don't delay I For full information, folders, etc., call on
