A vigorous campaign is to be instituted
fnSt. Paul against the gay. the giddy,
some Bay the vicious, rag-time. The
Professional league, an organization
composed of prominent musical educators
in tre city, have taken up the matter
and propose to give it their serious con
sideration.- The matter was first brougiit
to the league's notice In a paper read
before the organization by Mrs. E. H.
Parnell at its meeting held two weeks
ago In Raudenbush hall. The 1 aper
stated that it was time that the musi
cians of the city did some vigorous work
to press the demoralizing, syncopated
measure. An animated discussion fol
lowed Mrs. Parnell's" suggestion, and the
result was that Miss Jennie Pinch, sec
retary of the Professional league, was

The fad for brass decorative house fit
ments is being carried to the extreme de
gree, even the most desirable lamp shades
being of pierced brass. Possibly the latest
addition to the brass house fitments is a
waste basket in a most attractive, heavy
and handsome design. A tall jar, several
bowls for flowers, candlesticks galore,
etc., are now almost indispensable to com
plete library or living room furnishing.

Already the advance showing's of mat
tings for the spring renovation are on
view for the benefit of those who wish
to make selection before the patterns
have been picked over, as the large shops
will store goods for quite a long- time
these days and deliver on request. Chinese
mattings are made entirely of straw, and
therefore are heavier and lie better en
the floor. The Japanese are made on a
cotton warp and are easier and more flex
ible to handle. Their wearing qualities are
about the same and they are each equally
popular. Large designs that have prevail
ed for several seasons past are still the
preferred mode in even larger effects than
ever. While the small geometrical figures
and basket-weave effects are not n[to
gether passe, yet the large floral patterns
are decidedly first choice. The colorings
still remain the same—red, blue, etc., en
a natural color ground.

EARNINGS OF A MONARCH.
Thirty-two dollars a month is a very
modest stipend for a monarch, especially
one who combines supernatural knowl
edge with executive ability. But that is
all Cnief Lenana, of the Masai tribe
in British East Africa, gets—and he is
more than satisfied.
In return for this allowance from the
English government, Lenana agrees to
Keep the natives on friendly terms with
King Edward's representatives in the
East African protectorate. When con
sideration is taken of the fact that the
Masai tribe is one of the most warlike
and dangerous with which the British
have to contend in East Africa, the $3^
a month seems monqy well spent.
Chief Lenana exercises absolute au
thority over his tribe. His power is based
on superstition, for he is principal medi
cine man as well as oommander-in-chkf
and king. On certain occasions he takes
drugs, called royal medicine, which the
natives believe would poison any other
person, and straightway falls into a

his followers concerning future events

attribute his prophecies to a depth of
wisdom past their learning.
As a matter of fact. Lenana maintains
his leadership simply through the me

Condition of Thoroughfares to He
Brought to Attention of Health
sion of Pottery.
Much fault was found yesterday by the
Woman's Civic league with the present
condition of St. Pauls streets and with
the enforcement, or rather lack of en
forcement, of the ordinance forbidding
passengers from spitting in the Btraet
cars. Mrs. Conde Hamlin presided &£
yesterday's meeting of the league, which
was held on the fourth floor of the Ryan
Annex. The secretary, Mrs. A. ft. Col
vin, read a resolution which called the
health commissioner's attention to the
filthy condition of the streets of the eit,v.
The resolution stated that no effort
seemed to be made to free the streets
from an* accumulation of waste paper,
and that in other respects their condition
was a discredit to St. Paul. A copy of
the resolution was ordered sent to the
health commissioner and to the city en
gineer. In regard to spitting in street
cars, complaint was made that con
ductors made no attempt to enforce the
ordinance, no matter how brazen the of
fense was. A resolution was passed
which provided that the Civic league call
the health officer's and the street car
company's attention to the neglect, and
a copy of the resolution was ordered
sent to both the health officer and the
street car company.
"Pottery" was the subject of yesterday
afternoon's programme. Miss Mabel Chis*
lett. a teacher at the Mechanic Arts higli
school, gave a most interestir*', history
of pottery, touching upon the work of
the early Graeks and Romans, and trac
ing the growth of the art down through
til© medieval period to the present time.
She told something about the method
employed in ' turning out Rookwood,
Grube and Dedham pottery in this coun
try. A set of excellent slides illustrated
the talk, and there was also a good col
lection of pieces of modern pottery on

SI SPICIOIS FACTS ABOUT TERRA

The reporter couldn't see anything In
it for him except to say, "Well, what
of that?" and so he said it.
"Oh, maybe not much," replied the
man from Maryland. "Only muskrats are
scarce now, too."
The reporter couldn't see what there
was about that to cause it to be told
in a whisper.
"Oh, can"t you?" said the man. "Taen
perhaps you haven't noticed that there

ticed thta, and so, of course, it hasn't
struck you as. queer that terrapin stew
doesn't cost any more now than it did
when there were lots of terrapin to make
it out of."
The reporter seemed to get- an inkling
of what the man from Maryland was
hinting at, and started in to say that it
couldn't be that he meant it, but the
Maryland man cut him off and exclaimed 1.
"I say nothing. But I can assure you,
and statistics will bear me out, t.iat uiere
hasn't been any increase in the demand
for muskrat skins over what it was ten
years ago. They gathered in just as
many muskrats for their skins down on
the Maryland marshes ten years ago as
they do today.
"There hasn't been any epidemic that
has carried off muskrats during that time,
so far as I have heard. Why should they
go and get scarce, then, after there was
no longer any way to disguise the fact
that terrapin were fewer than the de
mand called for? I say nothing; but I
-will suggest without hesitation, and sug
gest It out loud, that neither you nor
any other man had better tell me that
he wouldn't eat muskrat for a $10 bill,
for I will have to tell you emphatically
that you don't know what you are talk
"When handled right there isn't any
thing alive that makes a more palatable
dish than this same miscalled little ani
mal, for it isn't a rat uny more, than a
rabbit is, and not half as much as a
squirrel is. and if people had called it by
its right Indian name of musquash, in
stead of corrupting it into muskrat, it
wouldn't have been under the ban it is.

some food of the muskrat make it one
of the most desirable of all wild animals
for table use. It is better yet tlmn young
beaver, and young beaver is—but, let
that pass. We have no beaver in Mary
land, so it has no place in this argument.
"But don't make-any mistake about the
muskrat. It's the name that gives it the
black eye. You don't want any ordinary
cook to fool with your muskrat. though.
"An ordinary cook is not fit to cook
muskrat, and consequently it is always
good in Maryland, where there are aO
ordinary cooks. But the most expert cook
in all Maryland for muskr&t is an old
negro woman in Dorchester county. She
is the best cook in every way I ever
knew, as a. matter of fact, but she can
get up a dish of muskrat stew that will
make the man who goes to scoff remain
to feast, and the man who didn't know
What he was served with to want to
have the recipe for that dish of terrapin.
Of course, it is only during a certain
season of the year that muskrat is at tha
head of all things eatable. And that is
just the season, too, when terrapin is at
its best. Strange, isn't it?
"Yes; it's too bad the way terrapin are
disappearing. Just like the buffalo and
the wild pigeon. And in sympathy with
it, somehow, the muskrat is getting
scarce, too. But I say nothing.
"I know this, though. There isn't any
bigger demand for muskrat skins now
than there was ten years ago to thin the
muskrats out so. And there isn't any
falling off in the supply of terjrapin stew,
scarce as terrapin are. and it doesn't cost
any more now than it did when terra
pin were plentiful. But I say nothing.

THACKERAY'S FAREWELL OIWUn.
Before sailing for Liverpool Thackeray
gave a farewell dinner at Delmonico's.
then on the corner of Broadway and
Chambers street, opposite A. T. Stewart
& Co.'s. Thirty-two guests sat down with
him, including Reed and several other
Philadelphia friends, who came to New
York to attend the entertainment. The
last survivor said, "We had a glorious
night of it," and he remembered that the
party included Cozzens, Cranch, Curtis,
Daly, Dana, Charles A. Davis, Duer,
Haekett, Ilalleck, Hicks, Charles King,
Robinson, Taylor, the two Wallacks,
Ward and Young. Alas!
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.
"Thackeray was in fine spirits," writes
Ceorge William Curtis, "and when the
cigars were lighted he said that there
should be no speechmaking, but that
everybody, according to the old rule ol
festivity, should sing a song or tell a

Out in the Muskoga logging country a
successful minister of the gospel must
comply with a long list of requirements.
Hi- must not only possess more book and
.spiritual knowledge than his parishion
ers; he must know at least enousrh about
farming and logging and the tanbark in
dustry to discuss these matters intelli
gently. Above all, he must appear to be
lieve that he knows nothing: at all.
But when the Muskoka residents do
take a minister to their hearts they are
loath to lose sight of him: apt, also, to
"take it out of" the man who succeeds
him, slightly. Which was the reason why
Archer Gallupin, the young man who as
sumed the spiritual care of aboXit twen
ty-eight square miles of territory when
Providence and the bishop saw tit to re
move good old "Father" Andrews to To
ronto, wondered why the Muskoka coun
try people had been described to him as
so hospitable and warm-hearted and
Everything went against the young
minister from the beginning. He was
just "out" from England to commence
with —a delicate younger son sent out to
Canada for the sake of the weak heart
which bore testimony to the failing
health of his mother's family: he had
a positive manner, for a second disad
vantage. For a third, the light trotter
and lighter cart which he insisted upon
purchasing, against the unanimous advice
of his scattered parishioners, utterly
failed to meet wtih the dire disaster pre
dicted for its first encounter with the
mud of the. rainy seasons; fourthly—but
the list is too long for recounting.
The inevitable happened to the young
minister, of course. He found the first
winter so exhilarating that, fallowing the
usual course of the "green Englishman,"
he declined to protect himself sufficiently
and acquired a severe chest trouble, two
irozen ears and a frosted nose, which
gleamed brilliantly all the next sum
mer as a result of his foolishness; be
gloried in the first summer, shivered
through the first autumn, and only nerv
ed himself to face the second winter by
sheer courage and dreams of the second
spring. He fell In love with the belle
of the Rippleville center and was snub
bed and tormented and detested by all
the young men of that locality in conse
quence. He approached the "good-bye"
season when all the hardy young fel
lows go off to "the camps" for the win
ter, with a sad heart and a bitter sense
of failure. He was not invited to at
tend a single "good-bye party," and
when he told some of the prospective
campers that he should probably visit
them before Christmas, since he regard
ed the Mclnness logging camp, at least,
as within his spiritual boundaries, they
laughed at him openly.
"Ride forty miles to visit with us
'shanty-men« " Jeered Bill Harkness,
brother of the sweet girl whom the
young minister longed after; "when I
see you I'll expect you, Mr. Gallupin,
an' not afore!"
Still, the time came when the min
ister proved his pluck and prowess, and

that he could not sing and knew no story.
But with friendly persistence, which yet
was riot immoderate, Thackeray declared

it would be a manifest injustice to every

when, from a logging camp peg to hang
jokes on he was transformed to a logging
camp hero. The manner of his apothe
osis was as follows:
It was the week before Christmas, and
the young minister, making his Christmas
visits to his parishioners, had traversed
many miles of hard-packed snow in the
light cutter which had replaced the de
bated cart. He drove ud the "side road"
to the Harkness farm .iust about noon
time. 'He had promised himself to ac
cept the inevitable dinner invitation and
to get thoroughly warm. During the sec
ond winter the unfortunate "erreenies"
are usually "bone cold" perpetually, and
Archer was proving no exception to the
rule. But the young minister was not
destined to warm himself at the Hark
noss fire that day.
The barnyard was deserted. The kitch
en, into -Which he presently let himself,
after repeated knockings, was empty as
well. From the "front room" ODening
out of it came a sound of sobs and trou
bled feminine voices. Stretched out on
the big bed in the corner lay Ben Hark
ness, the youngest son of the household,
white and unconscious from the force of
the wrongly felled tree which had fallen
upon him at his work of "takine out
logs" from the family bark lot." He
had dragged himself home, only to faint
on the threshold. His father was' iri
Toronto for a day or two, the older boys
up at the Mclnness camp: Mrs. Hark-.
ness had crawled out of a sick bed at
Nell's summons, and there was only the
pretty object of the young minister's ad
oration to care for her mother and
brother and to summon the doctor, some
"I'll get the doctor," said young Archer,
The grateful look which Neil gave
made his heart beat joyously, but it
didn't strengthen the tired horse, which
war? presently speeding back toward
Bracken, as it did the tired driver. Half
way to the village the young minister
was compelled to ask shelter for his
horse, and go on without him. He cov
ered most of the intervening four cniles
on the run, and arrived at Bracken all
but exhausted. Yet- back he would go
wiih the doctor. And on the whole, it
was well that he did.
There was a fighting chance for
Ben's recovery, so said the doctr.r,
presently, but Ben didn't think so,
upon recovering consciousness, and he
wanted his father and brothers. The
doctor would telegraph the elder Haik
ness from the next village, but the Mo-
Inness camp lay sixty miles out of the
course he must follow.
"There's a very sick woman I must
Bee, right in the opposite direction," he
told Mrs. Harkness. "I came here first
because she's probably got some other
woman who can do almost as much as
I can with her, and I never delay over
calls iike this. But I must get on to
her without delay."
"I'll go for the boys," spoke up the
young minister. "It will be moon
light after 10 o'clock, and if the trail*
decent, we'll have them her* by dawn

at the latest. A saddle horse will make
the best time."
And a saddle horse it had to be, any
way, because the only Harkness team
not up at the Mclnness camp for the
winter was in Bracken, waiting to
bring Mr. Harknpss homo, when he re
turned from Toronto. and. all the
neighbors were in similar case—both for
horses and men. So the young minister
saddled the "coltip" while NeTI made
him a cup of strong coffee; he swallowed
it, cheered her, and was off—just as the
clock struck 4. Four and a half hours
later, the camp trail being fair, and the
highway leading to it hard packed and
in good condition, the men at the Mcln
ness camp heard a sound of wild shout
ing. They turned out of their bunks,
out into the night and the frozen dark
ness, to find the young minister droop
ing over his horse outside.
"L.ift me down carefully, please, men,"
he said— and there was a new ring to
lii> voice which stirred their blood
strangely. "The horse fell with me a
while back, and I'm afraid my right
legs broken. I had a lot of trouble
getting back to the saddle again."
Then he faintod, and the broken leg
was set and splintered in rough but ef
fective camp fashion before he came to.
A circle of admiring faces surrounded his
improvised couch when his eyes opened
and Big Elder,, the eamptalker, -was por
forming a sort of an ecstatic war dar^c in
"Broke his leg and got on affair,! Rid
with the broken leg hanging! Jimmikina
but he's grit!' 1
So chanted Big Elder, over and over,
until the young minister sobered him with
the announcement he had come to maku
And then Big Elder's great, tender arms
around him, young Archer w*is borne to
the rude sled which Mclnness himself had
made ready, and driven, in fur-enriched
luxury, back to the Harkness farm.
"He'll go home with us," the Hark
ness boys had decided, summariiy, whefa
somebody tinted that his own lodgings
at Bracken were nearer; "the extra eight
miles won't hurt him, seeing how far he's
got to go anyway, an' we can look after
him better'n the hotel people."
"He—he rid up here with a broken leg
to tell ns 'bout Ben," finished Bill Hark
ness, who had always despised the young
minister. "I reckon we owe him some
thing for that."
And they paid him, paid him In full and
with splendid interest, long before Ben
was about again, or before, the new log
ging camp hero had recovered from tn*,
fever and weakness which followed that
awful ride in the bitter cn'.d and with
but a cup of hot coffee to stay the day's
hunger and exhaustion. For they, with
every man fh the whole eoantry-nlde, save
him their fullest respect and admiration
from that moment, and the Harkness
boys and their father, to heap up the good
measure of their bargain, consented to
