Berlin. To the horror and disgust
O Kaiser Wilhelm, Crown Princess
Cecelie has announced her intention
to give up life in palaces and castles
and live thereafter in hotels. More
trouble seems ahead for the royal
family, as both the kaiser and Ids
d;tiiKbter-in-law are strong minded
pe.iKons. and the kaiser is determined
that the old tradition about royalty
living in castles shall not be broken.
If troub'e comes over this little do-!
mcstic difference the kaiser will blame
the Princess of Pless for it all. The!
Princess of Pless, who is regarded as i
one of the most beautiful women in
all Germany, put the idea In Cecelie's
head. She has been living in a hotel
for some time and thinks this is the
only way for a royal person to live.
Not long ago, in a tete-a-tete with the
cr'own princess, she dilated 'upon thej
joys of hotel life something in this
"My dear Cecelle, you are missing
half of the joy of living. I, too, have
lived in castles and palaces, but it
was only when my husband and I took
up life in a hotel that I really began
to live. It is wonderful no house
hold cares, no worry about maids, no
planning of great dinners, etc. I can
give the most elaborate dinners and
the smartest 5 o'clock teas on just
enough notice to send out my Invita
tions or to call my friends.
"Then ' I know just what these af
fairs cost. Including flowers, wines
and cigarets. Why don't you try It?
If you did you would not exchange
this free, happy life for all the palaces
you now have or can ever possess."
Needless to say, the remarks of the
Princess of Pless made a deep im
pression on the crown princess, who
has traveled enough to know that ho
tel life has some very distinct advan
tages. That very day she took the
crown prince into her confidence and
painted a glowing picture of hotel life,
winding np with a request that he
shut the castles up and take an apart
ment of six or eight rooms in com?,
first class hotel.
The crown prince liked the idea.
NOTABLES TO VIEW
KEOKUK POWER DAM
In order to mark the completion of
the $25,000,000 power dam at Keokuk,
Iowa, by a celebration to be held next
summer, an advisory meeting of rep
resentatives from all the cities within
the power zone has been called at Keo
kuk for Jan. 6.t This meeting will be
attended by the governor-elects of Illi
nois, Iowa, and possibly Missouri.
Hon. Edward F. Dunne, governor-elect
of Illinois, and Hon. George W. Clark,
governor-elect of Iowa, have accepted
invitations to inspect the dam at that
time. The purpose in arranging this
meeting Is to initiate a movement to
bring the president of the United
States and the governors of many
states to a celebration to be held next
summer when the dam is completed. In
order that the crea ion and Installation
of the world s greatest power develop-
raent m the heart of the Mississippi
valley may be fittingly commemora
ted. By 'his meeting It Is hoped to
awaken the people to the fact that
there Is being created In the Missis
sippi valley electrical power several
times greater than ever before attempt
ed and that there is being finished at
Keokuk an engineering construction
second only to the Panama canal in
cost, magnitude or future economic
Importance. Luncheon will be served
tp all visiting delegates at noon and
the Inspection of the dam and power
house will occur in the afternoon.

but he has had so many tiffs with his
father of late that he did not care to
make this radical departure from the
traditional way of living without first

Skulking along the hillside, or

in the light of day, hated and humiliat

and shot at, with a price upon his
head, an outlaw without redress, it
would seem that his life is not a hap

night has settled over the land, then
does he gather courage as he prowls
along the trails or through the brush.
Taking his station on a hilltop, he
yelps and howls defiance at the ranch
man's answering dogs, at the ranch
man himself and his men, and at all
whom in the light of day he has so
feared, but whom he now challenges
and mocks in the safety of the dark
night hills. So vociferous, so multi

he has the courage to put up a good
fight when cornered. He is exceedin
ly fleet of foot, and seems to realize
and appreciiij that fact. On it he de
pends for safety, and pursued by
dogs, knowing his superior pedal ad
vantages, he seems to take pleasure,
in tolling them on. He will lead them
a merry chase through the brush and
over the hills and when weary or
likely long before will stop in somo
spot where tho view of the chase is
good, and wait and watch his pursuers
with a smile of contempt and derision,
on his face. The time comes for
some of his pack, however, when the
dogs get him at a disadvantage, but

rauder Is. He knows that the coyote
is paying him an uninvited visit as is
his way, and if he arises and takes his
more or less trusty gun and sallies j
forth in search of his enemy, he will j
do well if he but catches a glimpse of
the fleet-footed, quick-witted robber.
Long before his arrival at the scene
of the raid, most likely, the wiley coy
ote will have taken the return trail
with his fat fowl In his watering jaws,
if he has been fortunate in his efforts,
and If not successful, then he goes as
he came, empty of provisions and cor
respondingly disheartened. When the
dish of his preference is not to be had
he will turn to other If less enticing
viands. At times he is a vegetarian,
eating pumpkins and the like; again,
he is a fruitarian, and the rancher's
vineyards and orchards will receive
his attention. Yet it is a question in
the minds of many whether the oeca-
! sional fowl that the coyote purloins.
or the small amount of vegetables and
fruit compensates him for the bene
fit he returns in destroying many of
the ranchman's greatest enemies.
The coyote will run down and kill
the long-eared jackrabbits, whose
sharp teeth and large appetites do so
J much harm, and, too, the smaller cot
tontail who, does his share of damage.
He destroys many ground squirrels,
gophers, mountain rats and other
At one time, some years ago, the
coyote was hunted by horsemen and
hounds, as the fox is hunted in other
places. Packs of fine grayhounds
were ,kept for that purpose, though
foxhounds were also used. In recent
years the cutting up of a great deal
of territory into small ranches, and the
i building of towns and villages has put
an end to organized coyote hunts with
horses. Near the towns the coyote
stays well back in the hills during the
daytime, and only descends into the
valleys when darkness has obscured
the land and he may in Its friendly
shelter entef the precincts of man un
noticed. Then he is stealthy, making
no noise, for he realizes his danger,
and knows that if he would be safe he
must be quiet.
The coyiVw is never fat nor pros
perous in appearance, but rather thin
to gauntness, hungry-".ooking and
wretched in his being. So if one may
judge by his looks as to how good his
living is, and then deduct the wild
j game from his bill of fare, it does not
appear to leave a great balance that
