A reporter of the Paris Matin en

The amount the Matin expected to
pay for Rockefeller's time was calcu
lated on the estimate that his income
was fl.OuO hourly.
The natural inference is that this
calculation is incorrect. Perhaps John

raise its estimate of the value of Rocke

it must be sufficient.

Again the Roosevelt administration
has gotten itself into a tangle Involving
factional censure within the republican
party. It is all because of Secretary
Shaw's precipitate haste to accept an
invitation to deliver an- address at Dav-
nport tonight in opposition fo the can
didacy of Governor Cummins for re
noniination. Nut only has a bungle
been niade in showing the hand of the
president himself as taking part in the
Iowa squabble, but the secretary of
he treasury turned down a previous
engagement to deliver the commence
ment address at Syracuse university to
come west. The Syracuse school, as is
well known, is presided over by James
R. Day. who has recently placed him
self in an unpopular light by his
speeches and writings defending the
trusts and big corporations and scor
ing those who are attempting to bring
about reforms of a more or less radical
nature. In these he did not spare the
present national administration. The
extraordinary manner in which the
Des Moines opportunity was grabbed
tip to afford the shadow, of an excuse
for snubbing Day is seen in the follow
ing telegram which the secretary made
public before leaving Washington:
"Washington. D. C. June li. Hon.
W. H. Anthony, Secretary of Lincoln
Clnb. Davenport. Iowa: I wired Des
Moines yesterday that I could not ac
cept an invitation to speak at Daven
port on the evening of June ., as it
necessitates cancelling two imiortant
previous engagements. On receipt of
your invitation, I conferred with the
president and have decided to cancel
thee.!: " agements and accept
yours. I will be with you on Wednes
day evening. L..-M. SHAW."
Yesterday the president's press
agent had an unusually busy day of
It answering telegrams from the Cum
mins followers demanding the reason
for this sudden invasion of Iowa under
something more than a mere passive
consent from the chief executive. Last
night at Chicago Secretary Shaw de-'
nied that the rec ent opinions expressed
by Chancellor Day had anything to do
with his trip west, but failed to give
an entirely satisfactory reason for his
course. He admitted that his accept
ance of the invitation to address the
graduating class at Syracuse had been
given before the chancellor of the insti
tution had shown such conservative
tendencies. At Syracuse last night
Chancellor Day declared he had not
the slightest reason to entertain the
belief that his own recent criticism of
the campaign against the oil trust un
dertaken by President Roosevelt, was
in the remotest way connected with
Secretary Shaw's snub.
j A WIFE'S RUSE.
Republicans A-Hunting Money.
Sr. Louis Republic: Chairman Nied
ringhaus has gone up to Washington
to tell Chairman Cortelyou all about
those uO.oco nonvoting republicans that
have been hiding out in the Missouri
brush. Before allowing himself to be
hypnotized into producing the "dough"
to persuade them to the polls. Chair
man Cortelyou would do well to require
of Chairman Niedringhaus a complete
roster showing their names, vocations
and dwelling places.
Chairman Niedringhaus' mission to
Washington is to convince Chairman
Cortelyou that he can carry Missouri
for the republicans this year by a
"whirlwind campaign with money." and
to get the money out of the republican
national committee's strong box.
The hope of contributions from this
source is the only visible cause for
Chairman Niedringhaus' bubbling en
thusiasm. There is nothing else in
Missouri to make Missouri republicans
feel that it would be worth while to go
to the polls this year at all.
Tin y did not carry the state in l'.i'M.
They got it as a free gift from the stay-at-home
democrats. They will not get
it that way again. Their party is di
vided by a bitter feud, and the record
of their delegation in congress is a
story of betrayal of the constituents
who sent them to Washington. Mr.
Niedringhaus can give no valid assur
ances of success to Chairman Cortel
you. And yet. practical politicians have
their weak side of gullibility. The in
surance scandals have cut off some of
Mr. Cortelyou's sources of revenue and
he will need all the money he can
scrape together for use in the effort
to stem the tide of republican disaffec
tion in Ohio. Indiana. Illinois and the
northwest. Rut all that region being
doubtful, it is not unlikely that Mr.
Niedringhaus may convince Mr. Cor
telyou of the desirability of putting up
handsomely for a rainbow-chasing cam
paign in Missouri.
Nifdringhaus and Cortelyou would
rejoice greatly if they could conquer
Missouri this year with money. They
can't do it. and Missouri democrats
will not forget that they are apt to

Kdwanl Martmdale was a gentleman
of leisure. He spent much of his time
at his lul or Iris chubs, for be belonged
to u number of thesn. the rest either in
shooting or lishingr racing horses or
some out of door amusement. -Those
who blamed him flbr wasting his time
could not charge hint with indolence
or effeminacy. Hejvolunteered for the
Spanish-American 'war and came out
with an excellent (record. But. the war
over, he returned? to his shooting, fish
ing, horse racing and. the like.
Martlnda'ie bad married a very love
ly Rirl who bad, borne him three chil
dren. So far aslleing true to bis wife
and children wn concerned, he was a
model husband, but be would not stay
at home. His wife wws "obliged to
pass most of her 'time.' alone with her
children, while her husband was gad
ding about. This Troubled her greatly.
"Some day." sl . said to him omi
nously. -you may have cause to re
gret your neglect Sot 'm e. I am very
lonely, and I mayU? tempted to en
courage some one of the men who
would be glad to bef my cavalier."
"Wouldn't blamelyou a bit. my dear,
if you did."
A determined lciok came over the
poor woman's facefthat denoted a pur
pose. And a pur-pone was -carried out.
One afternoon Martindale came home
and found a certain man alxntt towu,
Archibald Griffith., sitting in the li
brary with his Tvife. The husband
greeted the iwtrader cordially, then
went upstairs, witere he was soon
heard romping wttb the children. The
wife, who had hoped for some expres
sion of jealousy, sighed. Her cavalier
soon took bis leave, but :Ct the door re
ceived a pressure of the' hand and an
invitation toicome again kooii.
From that time forwand for a season
Griffith was a -onstant attendant upon
Mrs. Martimhile. always-receiving an
at least outward welenie from the
husband. Mrs. Martind3e accepted all
Griffith's invitations, buft her conduct
excited no blaime. Everybody consid
ered that her husband ivas getting no
more than he cSeserved, fluid all had im
plicit confidence in the Mife.
One morning .Mrs. Martindale receiv
ed a note from (Griffith -announcing that
he bait suddenly 'Ixhmi ealled'away and
might not see her again forrsome time.
The note was not ' unwelcome, for she
bad sickened of the role stae was play
ing and didn't quite kneAv'bow to end
it. As her husband had'inrtde no com
ment on her cavalier's attentions so he
refrained from asking w.iat had be
come of Lim. Martindnlervvas as much
away from home as before, and the
wife was obliged to admit to herself
that her plan of making; her husband
Jealous bad signally failexl.
Now. Mrs. Mlartindale was a deter
mined woman and vowed that she
would force herfbushandtto show some
concern for her conduct .if she had to
pat herself at fjmlt forever in bis eyes.
One night when Mnrtirwlale was play
ing a game of bridge at-his club a tele
phone message came 'from his home
that his wife was very'ill and be must
come home at once. He delayed so
long that another jmessage came saying
that bis wife was dying and wished to
see him before it would be too late.
He finished the game and weut home.
Mrs. Martindale wns in bed. She
was gasping, and her fane was livid.
A physician stood by. evidently at a
loss to know what to clofor her. As
soon as she had regaJnedher voice she
directed that every one should leave
the room except her husband. Then
she called him close to her and spoke
with apparent effort.
"Ned. I have a confession to make.
You know Archie Griffith? Well, In
that affair I wronged(you."
"Don't force me tocspeak the word."
The wife groaned, , but said nothing.
"And 3'ou wanted me to know this
before you died?"
"Yes." came faintly from the strick
"Well. Bess, I'm sorry j-ou hadn't
taken a more convenient time to tell
me. I'm behind in a game of 'bridge,'
and I must go right back. Ta-ta."
The bedclothes were thrown off with
a Jerk, and the sick woman stood on
"This is too much," sin cried. "You
care so little for me that even that
which can alone hold us and our poor
dear little ones together Is of no mo
ment to you."
"Bess." said the imperturbable bus
band, "you're the biggest liar in Amer
ica. Do you reniemler the new butler
who came soon after Griffith began his
attentions? Well. I put him In to
watch you. lie saw your cavalier at
tempt to take liberties with you the
night before be left town, aud you re
pelled him with indignation. The next
day I gave Griffith the choice of pistols
or departure, and he chose departure."
"Oh. Ned, did you really care that
much for me?"
"I certainly did, sweetheart, and
more. You have clone your best to
make me show my love for you, and I
shall put you to no further trouble. I
shall give up amusements and from
this time forward devote myself to
business, to you and the children. But
one who has been bo near death tfeeds
Touching a bell, the butler appeared.
His master directed him to dismiss the
doctor and to bring tip a supper and a
bottle of wine.
Martindale kept his word and has
since been a model husband In every
respect. He says that any woman who
loves her husband well enough to con
fess a fault she hasn't committed de- j
serves to be treated by that husband ,
with the most loving consideration. He
has resigned from his. clubs and spends

Conditions in Illinois Favorable for
Plant Growth Up to June
The weekly weather bulletin sum-!
mary for the week ending June 11 in
this state follows:
Showers of generous and satisfying
proportions fell over most of the cen
tral portion of the state on the Sth.
At a number cf stations heavy meas
urements of an inch or more of precip
itation were registered. Showers cf
light measurements were also recorded
on the Sth. Cth and 7th. The rainfall
came mostly in the form of thunder
showers, accompanied by high wind
movements, with damaging effects, in
some localities. Light rainfall was re
corded In the northern and the south
ern districts on several days, but in
most instances thu amounts vcr in
sufficient to relieve the need of moist-!
ure. In the northern district rain is
greatly needed in some places.
The mean temperature averaged con
siderably above normal. The greatest
excess occurred in the northern dis
trict. The departure from the normal
at Chicago was 11 degrees above nor
mal. High maxima and high minima
prevailed until the loth, when a de
cided temperature fall occurred, the
lowest minima being registered Mon
There was a marked deficiency in
bright sunshine, and the percentage of
humidity was high.
