Barred From llio Hall of Fame.
The committee appointed to put emi
nent Americans Into the Hall of Fame
«eeins to be especially busy in keeping
famous persons out of It. At a recent
seance James Russell Lowell and Gen
eral Sherman were given full creden
tial* for pedestals, and Whittle? got In
by a small margin. On another occa
lion John Qulnoy Adams, James Mad
ison, Agassis, Alexander Hamilton,!
Paul Jones, Mary Lyon, Emma Willard '
ami Maria Mitchell polled the requisite
fifty-one votes and were declared offi
Foe was found to lack eight wise
men In the committee who would over-!
look certain phases of his life and fie
'Clare that the phenomenal fame his!
works have won for him the world'
over is authentic. Oliver Wendell
Homes was Joined to the discounted]
■ class along with Too because lie lacked
three votes of being truly famous. Hor
ace Greeley is also outside of the Pan
theon, and Nathan Hale Is only 10 per
cent famous, since he got a meager ten
votes where 100 Americans, good and
true, had a chance to extend the glad
hand and pull him into the sacred col
umn. To what limbo famous Ameri
cans of the class of Davy Crockett
will be consigned Is a matter for sad
reflection. .Perhaps the committee will
graciously establish an annex or two
with a roomy vestibule for the storage
of busts barred at present, but carried
on the waiting list to see how their al
leged fame will pan out. And Holmes,
Toe and Halo will not be lonely out-
Side, as will lie seen by the list of bril
liant Americana besides whom the lof
ty tribunal by Its latest decree has de
nied the Imprimatur of Its approval:
Nathanael Greene, James Fenimore
Cooper, William Cullen Bryant, George
Bancroft, John Lothrop Motley, Fran
ds I'nrkman, Mark Hopkins, Phillip*
Brooks, Rufua Choate, Patrick Henry,

A Cry For More Wool.
Figures given by the United States
Investor Bhow that the price of native
wool ia thla country has Increased in
ten years three and in sum.- cases four
times over whal it was ten years ago.
Quotations in London ami also In South
Ami rlcan markets Bhow a correspond
ing advance. This rise of prices uiuy
stimulate the growth of woo! in Aus
tralia ami In South America, and also
affect the sheep growing industry tn
this country t>> Borne extent.
Of late years sheep raising in the ;'
United States has rested upon a mut- ■
ton basis that Is, the value of the meat
has been considered rattier than the j
value of the fleece. For the past llf- j
teen years the number of sheep has not !
Increased with the growth of popula
tion. One reason is that land, with the
exception of certain districts, lias been
too valuable for other purposes. But
if the crops are to rot on the ground
because of lavish abundance or for the
lack of harvesters or the means of '
hauling them to market farmers may j
conclude that there Is money in rais
ing sheep for the wool. The prospect
will bo Improved if science finds some
Wily to stop the sheep disease which
has fastened Us blight upon, some of
the old wool growing sections.
The death of Sir Henry Irving re
■loves almost the lasi link between tbe
modern and the classic days of the
English speaking stage. When Irving
began he had for models at home the
tWO Keans, KUen Tree, Charles und
Frances Anne Kemble and Macready.
lv this country the elder Uooth had
Ju-i passed away, but Forrest and
Davenport were at the height of their
fame. Kdwin Hooth, Barrett, Adams,
Bangs, LMter Wullack, Warren, Gil
bert uud Mrs. QUbert were his chief
American contemporaries and have all
departed before him.
The De Wet whom the Germans re
cently arrested In Southwest Africa for
plotting rebellion Is a uephew of the
distinguished Boer general, but should
cot be identified with the young Dp
Wet who visited this country during
tbe Boer war. This lust Do Wet claim
ed to be v nephew of the general whose
nume he bore He was killed about a
year ago in South America.
It takes Hi.; romance out of the Grand
Duke Cyril's real love match, which I
■led to his banishment by the czar, to j
recall that he Is the chap who went to'

bates of both sexes In his train and

Critics of horrid man should take no

on a miscreant who stole a kiss was
altogether too low.

SKEE CLUB TOURNAMENT.
Content in Michigan Will lie Great
est of Hi Kind In America.
The [ahpemlng .Skee club is already
preparing for its big annual tourna
ment to be held Feb. 22 next, says an
[shpemlng (Mich.) dispatch. With the
practical assurance thai President
Roosevelt will ]«■ among the many
thousands of spectators at the course,
he having conditionally accepted an In
vitation laM winter to be present, it is
Intended to make the event the great
est contest of its kind ever held in the
The tournament will be Internationa]
in its scope. Not only will the best
skee junipers in America take part—
and these Include a number of men
who have won fame at national tour
naments conducted under royal aus
pices in their Dative land—but It is
practically certain that famous riders
will make the trip from the Scandina
vian peninsula especially to participate
In the [ahpemlng meet.
The expenses of the foreign contest
ants will be advanced, and, in addi
tion, they will doubtless share in the
prizes, which will be sufficiently large
to Induce them to do their best.
The slide on which the skee jumping
will take place is being greatly Im
proved at considerable cost. The Jumps
will be well above the 100 foot mark.
A Texan "nnbj" Seven Feet Tall.
"Baby Jim," a young colossus from
Beaumont, Tex., is the latest freak.
The youth is eighteen years old and
seven feet tall. In coming up from
Galveston he was too big for the ordi
nary railroad car and had to find ac
commodations In the stock car.
