Clay Clement's Engagement.

unable to find out. Mr. Clement
is not exactly a new star; he was
known in the environs of Chicago

the Hells and the New Dominion,
opening at Waukesha and, after
a brief season, re-opening and
playing through Illinois, Iowa
and Wisconsin, lie has been
known to the Pacific Slope also
for several seasons. His plays,
by some, are voted prosy by
others good. The Wkkklv re

upon personal observation, until

The Financial Side of Yacht Racing.
It is estimated that the cost of
building and racing the Shamrock
and Columbia for this season alone
cannot be much less than Si,030,
ooo. The thirty-nine sailors on the
Columbia will receive $35 a month ;
so that for a season of five months
their wages alone will absorb
$6,825. Their food will bring this
sum to at least $10,000 and to this
total for wages and food must be
added the skipper's salary of $4,000.
These items, although they
amount to nearly $15,000, only rep
resent a part of the season's ex
penses. At least once a week the
yacht will have to be taken out of
the water to have her bottom pol
ished. The manganese bronze of
which her hull is built accumulates
sea-weed rapidly, and this and all
other accretions must be cleared
away at short intervals if her speed
is not to suffer.
To say that the Columbia will
cost her owner $25,000 for the
season's racing is probably an
under-estimate; while the cost of
racing the Shamrock will be great
er. Tf the Shamrock is successful
in taking back the Cup to England,
the trophy will cost her generous
owner no less than $325,000 in ad
dition to all other normal expendi
ture; for this is the sum which will
be required to pay every member
of the winning crew the promised
$5 a week for life.
A "Tip" for Golfers.
At a golf match recently played
in the vicinity of Edinburgh a com
petitor appeared one morning in a
new suit of a very decided pattern.
He played much below his usual
form, missing several easy putts at
the first holes. Turning to his cad
die he exclaimed, despairingly,
"What on earth can be the matter
with me today?" I played a great
deal better yesterday!" Thus ap
pealed to, the caddie, whose circum
stances did not permit of many
Alaitre Labori, who almost lost
his life at the hands of an assassin
at Rennes a few weeks ngo, wms
until recently editor of the profes
sional newspaper La Gazette dU
Palais. He is compiling and edit
ing a comprehensive treatise 0:1
French jurisprudence entitled "The
Encyclopedia of French Law," of
which nine solid quarto volumes
have already appeared. He made
his reputation as a remarkably clev
er criminal lawyer in the case of the
anarchist, Duval, and in the defense
of the Niort brothers, accused of
parricide. Among the best known
cases with which he has been con
nected may be cited that of M. Prieu
against the minister of foreign af
fairs ; the eccentric case of the
comic actor, Chirac; several law
suits against Gil Bias; and the Vail
lant anarchist trial in 1894. His
pleadings in the Zola trial have since
greatly enhanced his professional
reputation, not only for forensic elo
quence, but for adroit and skillful
handling of his case.
A new use has been found for
the motor cab. A woman having
broken her leg in the street, a motor
cab and a doctor were telephoned
for, and arrived simultaneously.
The doctor brought an X-ray ap
paratus, and the cab brought the
battery. The two being combined,
an excellent skiagram of the lesion
was obtained and suitable first aid
rendered. The battery was then
disconnected from the Roentgen
tube, and by its means the cab took
the woman to the hospital . Ex.
Those whose feet have become
tender from over-use, will find a
bath of strong alum water very
beneficial. Dissolve about two tea
spoonfuls of powdered alum in a
quart of warm water. Soak the
feet in this solution for ten min
utes or so, and then wipe dry. Re
peat for several days. The alum
toughens the feet, and in many in
stances gives almost immediate relief.
To allay the intense itching
caused by erysipelas, and other
eruptions upon the skin, there is
nothing better than vaseline. Rub
it gently upon the affected part, and
relief will immediately follow.
A pail of water standing in a
room that has been newly painted
will quickly absorb the disagreeable
odor of the paint.
It is doubtful if any of us could
make the world much better; but
any of us could make it a little better.
Oh I That Last Word.
"I should like to know," said Mr
Rambo, testily, when the eonversa-1
tion began to wax warm, "why it is
that a woman always wants to have
the last word."
"She doesn't," replied Mrs. Ram
bo. "It's a slander."
"My dear, it certainly is the
truth. You know you always "
"Absalom, vou know better. I
"I am sure "
"No, you're not. It isn't so."
"Whv, my dear, can't you see "
"No, 'I can't! And I think (boo
hoo) you are are just as as
horrid as vou can be."
"Well, dear, I'll take it back. You
don't always want the last word."
"Of course I don't. I don't see
what you wanted to say so for." (
"Well, I won't say it any more."
"Because vou know it isn't true."
"As well as I do."
"You want it yourself."
"And you know it."
"You may be right, my dear,"
said Mr. Rambo, putting on his hat
and going out.
"I know I'm right," called Mrs.
Rambo after him.
