THE KAISER'S DAUGHTER.
Matrimonial Plans Involving Little
Princess Victoria Louise.
The only daughter of the German
niperor is the Princess Victoria Lou
ie e. This Is the name by which she
Is generally known, though the child
was laden at her christening with a
list rending Victoria Louise Adelaide
Matbilde Charlotte. She is an attrac
tive miss of twelve summers and much
like other children of her ago in her
behavior and ideas. But there is al
ready talk of her marriage. As the
only daughter of one of the most pow
erful immarchs of Europe she is of
course a valuable commodity, so to
speak, in the royal matrimonial mar
ket, and though the little girl lias
scarcely yet left off playing with her
dolls the royal matchmakers are at
work trying to arrange for her as bril
liant a match a possible. Negotia
tions are reported to be in progress be
tween the Berlin court and that of
Madrid far the purpose of bringing
about a match between the German
emperor's daughter and the young
king of Spain. Naturally it would Le
on advantageous tiling for the Spanish
monarch to be allied in this way with
the head of the great German empire.
On the other hand, to be queen of

Spain is a distinction which even a
member of Emperor William's family
might desire to possess.
On several grounds there is reason
to doubt the truth of the report, "in
the first place, the Prineess Louise is
a Lutheran, and her imperial sire's
strong religious views niijjht be an ob
stacle to her embracing another faith,
as she would have to do in becoming
the queen of Spain. In the next place,
the Spanish king would have to wait
some years for a wife if he were to
postpone marriage until the twelve-year-old
German prineess arrives nt a
proper age. Then, again, the young
princess, who is said to be. like her
father, very strong willed, might not
like the king picked out for her, and
though perhaps this would not be final
in the matter it would prove an addi
At present little Victoria Louise is
not bothering her pretty head about
the plans of the matchmakers, but is
worrying most about learning how to
cook. She spends two hours every aft
ernoon in a kitchen built for her espe
cial use, practicing on dishes which one
of these days she will trj- on her fond
parents and brothers. Tho emperor be
lieves that all women s-hoiild know
how to cook and makes no exception
of his daughter. She is the youngest
of the kaiser's seven children and
might be iu danger of being spoiled
were it not for her father's strictness
ns a disciplinarian. But even the au
tocratic ruler of the German empire
sometimes has tlitliculty in enforcing
his authority with the lively, blue eyel
'"baby of the family,' and he once said
to a friend, "she often forgets when
fpeaking to me that I am an emperor,
but she never forgets for a moment
that she is an emperor's daughter."
End of Bitter Fight.
"Two physicians had a long and
Etubborn fight with an abcess on my
right lung" writes J. P. Hughes of
Du I'ont, Ga., "and gave me up. Ev
erybody thought my time had come.
As a last resort I tried Dr. Kine's
New Discovery for Consun:ption. The
benefit I received was striking and I
was on my feet in a few days. Now
I've entirely regained my health." It

THE IDAHO DESERT.
Irrigation Will Soon Make it Blos
som as the Rose.
One of the" most forbidding portions
of the American continent has been the
desert of Idaho in the Snake river re
gion. Little besides sage grass would
grow there, and the lands, suitable
neither for agricultural nor grazing pur
poses, had leen abandoned to coyotes
and noisome reptiles.
But of late au almost miraculous
change has taken place In this region.
The government engineers thought they
saw a promise of fertility there, and
the tract was chosen as one of the
earliest to be Irrigated artificially under
the new scheme for which congress has
appropriated several million dollars.
At an expenditure of $2.000.X0. which
has been set aside for the construction
of great Impounding dams and diversion
canals above the Minidoka rapids, ful
ly $12.(iO,oN) of taxable property will
be created in this basin. Taking as a
basis the last census agricultural fig
ures for Idaho, the PjO.000 acres to
be reclaimed under this project will,
when settled under irrigation, repre
sent the latter value, while the animal
earnings of the land will amount to
about $2.0O0.oK). With this area cut
up into l,4oO farms, as Iti propositi by
the government, a rural population will
be created of 7.otiO. which will bring
with it an urban population of probably
another 7,Cmm, or 14,mh) people.
The Snnke desert basin when Irri
gated will afford an ideal example of
western stock raising under the hu
mane and profitable method of win
ter feeding. On many of the great
western ranges the cattle are left to
shift for themselves the year around,
entailing during the cold seasons great
loss of stock and always untold brute
suffering. Around the Minidoka basin
extend vast stretches of unreclaimed
land, which must always remain useful
solely for grazing purposes. The irri
gation of this tract of over 120.000
acres will provide, through luxuriant
crops of alfalfa, winter feeding for
tens of thousands of head of stock.
Where now one steer requires thirty or
even forty acres for his support, under
irrigation tlie fornge from one sure will
more than support and finish him off
for market. Idaho has already attain
ed distinction as a fruit producer, al
though the altitude of Minidoka is a
little too great for the best growth of
In other irrigated sections of the
state, notably the Payotte valley, ap
ples, plums, apricots, grapes and mel
ons reach a high state of perfection and
command fancy prices. Men have be
come wealthy from the careful culti
vation of twenty and forty acre tracts.
and enough can be raised from five
acres of this irrigated land, exhaustless
in its deep fertility, to support a family
in comfort. The Irrigated communities
of Idaho have become amonp the most
prosperous in the world. The desert
lands of Minidoka, producing only sage
brush, are now only awaiting water to
supply the farmer with a great variety
EVERY ONE HIS OWN TAILOR.
Simple Machine for Pressing Trous
ers at Home.
Any man who desires to be particu
larly neat about his appearance will
not neglect to Keep his trousers pressed
free from wrinkles. Then is probably
no other seemingly trivial thing which
will so detract from the personal ap
pearanee of a man as wearing a pair
of wrinkled trousers. Some men are

o particular about this point that
they pay more for pressing than the
trousers cost originally.
With the aid of the invention shown
herewith it should not be a dillicult
matter for a man to keep his trousers
in shape himself without the necessity
of vliting the tailor at su h frequent
intervals as to make his pocketlMiok suf
fer. This device consists of a pair of
fiat boards shaped like the trousers
l"gs, with a set of clninping levers
around the i-l-s whfeh make it pos
sible to draw the two presscr boards
tightly together. These clamps consist
fit pivoted lccrs. having cam faces of
such shape a to decrease the space as

stretcher and preser the bottoms of
the legs are first clamped In position.
Then the waistband is pulled tip until
th leys are tigtit and smooth, after
whiej; the remaining clamps are tight
ened and the garment allowed to re
main as long as necessary.
The startling announcement that a
