THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 0, 1011.
Steel Corporation to Do
Without a President.
HAS SERVED SEVEN YEAR .
In 1907, When He Married Mabelle Gil
man, the Actress, It Was Rumored
That He Would Quit Latest
Move Came Suddenly.
New York. .Tnn. 4. William Ellis
Corey, president of the United States
Steel corporation since the resignation
of Charles M. Schwab, the ilrst presi
dent, seven years ago, tendered his
formal resignation at a regular meet
lng of the finance committee. To all
intents and purposes the resignation
has been accepted. It will come form
ally before the board of directors at
their regulur quarterly meeting Jan.
25. They will accept it.
Kven to some of the directors of the
company Mr. Corey's resignation came
as a surprise. To other men in the
financial district connected with the
company it was as great u surprise as
was the announcement of George W.
Perkins' retirement from the firm of
J. 1. Morgan Ac Co,
In 1!)07, when Mr. Corey married Ma
belle Gilman, the nctre, it was wide
ly reported that he would bo succeed
ed as president, and there was a fac
tion of the board which rather openly
favored his retirement. It is under
stood that his retirement now has no
relation to his domestic affairs.
The ollice of president will remain
vacant for some time, if not forever.
It long has been subordinate to the
chairmanship of the board and the
chairmanship of the finance committee.
Up to about four years ago George
W. Perkins was chairman of the
finance committee, but was then suc
ceeded by Judge Elbert II. Gary, who
was then, as now, chairman of the
board of directors. Judge Gary since
has been the actual head of the com
pany. Mr. Corey was born in Rraddock.
Pa., in 1S00 and was educated in the
public schools. At the age of sixteen
he went into the chemical laboratory
of the Edgar Thomson Steel works at
Pittsburg and from there went on to
Homestead, and in 1S87 he became su
perintendent of the plate mill at the
Thomson works. His next change was
when ho went with the Carnegie Steel
company. He followed Mr. Schwab us
prosideut of the Carnegie company
and iu the summer of 1003 became ail
assistant to Mr. Schwab in the United
States Steel corporation and then suc
ceeded him as president.
Mr. Corey's first wife was Laura
Cook of Rraddock, Pa., whom he mar
ried when he wos a young man iu
Braddoek. Mrs. Corey got a divorce
from her husband in 1900 in Nevada,
nnd the following May Mr. Corey was
married to Mabelle Gilman, the ac
tress. The second Mrs. Corey spends
much of her time nt her chateau at I.a
Verriere, near Paris.

1 Starve a Cold.
Nature, as a rule, takes the appetite
( away when one Is coming down with
I a cold or other infections disease, and
I nature Is wise. Don't coax Mary to
i cat when she has n cold. Don't allow
the neighbors to tempt Johnny with
calf's foot Jelly or other dainties.
When suffering from a cold the diges
tive organs are in no condition to care
for food. The digestive Juices are al
tered or entirely absent. One or two
days' comparative fast will often as
sist in averting a severe siege of cold.
A more convenient and enjoyable form
of fasting would be to subsist for one
or two days upon fruit or fruit Juices
perhaps, with the addition of a little
toast. An exclusive fruit diet has all
the practical advantages of complete
fasting, while it satisfies the appetite
and supplies sugar from which the liv
er can manufacture glycogen to sus
tain the white blood corpuscles In
their continuous warfare against mi
crobes. William S. Sadler In Designer.

LOST BOYS COME BACK.
Spent Night at Lighthouse Aiding Ex
New York, Jan. 4. Raymond Collins
and William Rothkranz, two Larch
mont boys believed lost, cut their way
through the fog wnll over the sound
back to their homes after sonrt-hlng
parties on land nnd water and mes
sages through the air had probed the
muddling white bank all night to find
them. The two came home only after
they had worked all night as atlxll
larles in the government lighthouse
They kept the horn going. They held
in their hands the safety of ships at a
time when the tender of the horn wns
worn almost to collapse by thirty-six
hours of ceaseless strain alone in the
lighthouse. Though lost themselves
nnd knowing that their parents must
be searching for them, the two young
sters from Larchraont stuck by the
light until relief came to the tender.
Then they groped their way through
the white wilderness to their home.

The Magpie Ceiling.
One of the apartments in the an
cient royal palace at Cintra, Portugal,
Is known as the Hull of Magpies.
Painted in the arabesque ceiling is to
be found a swarm of magpies. Each
bos in the mouth a Bcroll, on which,
painted in red on a white ground, are
tho words, "Por bem." The 6tory
runs that King John of Portugal was
making lore to one of the maids of
honor In this chamber and was sur
prised by tho queen. His majesty mado
tho best of tho circumstances and ex
plained to the queen, "E por bem mlnka
sacre" ("Oh, it is nothing at all. It is
quite right There fa no harm in it"). As
to whether the queen was satisfied the
legend is silent, but the ladles of the
court were deeply interested and were
constantly saying to one another with
a smile, "Por bem I Por bem!" The
king thought it time to act, bo ho com
missioned an artist to paint on the
celling as many magpies as theco were
talkative ladles about the court, each
holding in the beak tho ribbon with
the words, "Por bem." London Globe.
Fate of Portugal's Homer.
"Tbo Luslad" Is one of tho noblest
records ever written of national glory
and success. Camocns, its gifted au
thor, determined to do for Portugal
what Homer had done for Greece. The
great poem was written in the six
teenth century, which has been called
tho heroic age of Portugal, nnd its
main feature Is tho rounding of tho
Cnpe of Good Hope by Vnsno dn Gama,
while a most interesting episode is
tho crowning after death of Inez de
Castro ns queen of Portugal. "Tho
Luslad" took its name from Luslus.
who was said to havo founded Lisbon.
Its author was born about 1520, and
his career, which began brilliantly,
was blighted by the deatli of a broken
heart of the lady of his love, for whose
sake ho was banished from tho land.
Ho wrote "Tho Luslad" in his banish
ment nnd wns recalled in 1571, losing
on tho wny all his property except his
poem. Pensioned nt first by the king,
this great epic poet of Portugal died
in great poverty in 1570, when his
patron was also dead.
He Got His.
