LONDON, Dec. 12. Special.) In smart
society here breakfast, as we undrsfn.i
It, has ceased to exist. There are a variety
ef reasons to account for thla Dtnner la
now such a very lata meal hi the mag'c
royal circle, wherein It la rarely served
murh before t p m., that people are not
ready for anything- but the merest pretense
of a repeat next momlna;. In bo circum
stances do the king and queen ever par
ts k of breakfast out of their be.lrooma. !
This fact has led society to do t:kwls". I

American women like Conauelo, duchess
of Manchester, and the countess of Essex,
who suffer from dyspepsia, take only the
merest pretense In the way of brakfaet
a cup of China tea and a crumb of toast,
perhaps. Mrs. George Cornwalha West
is a great believer In two meals a day and
eats no breakfast. Borne of the doctors
swear by the two-mesls-a-day rule, but
very few of their clients have J.e phys
ical strength to sdopt It.
In London It Is really only the man who
goes to his business In the city who break
fasts in the ordinary 'sense of the word.
His morning meal Is about the same as 1t
always has been and consists, like the
king's, of the Inevitable bacon and eggs.
with tea or coffee.
Eaglish Lsaek Preferred.
One or two hostesses of distinction have
tried to Introduce the continental fashion
of dejeuner, but for some unexplained
reason. It Is not acceptable. The majority
prefer to stick to the ordinary English
lunch, wtlh its series of courses. Now.
however, one wine only is served right
through the meal and very few ever .touch
liqueurs with their coffee; In fact. It is
scarcely etiquette to do so.
It was an American who said that "if
she shut her eyes she would have thought

when she attended the great sale of work
mads by convicts' wives, which has Just
been held at Sunderland house. The
duchess of Marlborough keeps up several
homes for the wtvea and children of men
who are condemned to long terms of Im
prisonment. Bile Is practically the first
lady who has aver thought of these sadly
afflicted women and their little ones and
help Is always forthcoming for them when
her grace Is asked for it.
The duchess and her mother-in-law, who
was staying with her for the sale, were the
only two ladies who appeared without
headgear. Very sweet, but so sad. fha
duchess looked In her simple frock, which
added to her height because of Its some

Marlborough if fata had not been unkind,

HAVE YOU THE "MOTOR MIND7'
A Caaraeterlstle e Aato Speakers
Which Riots la the Vnaec-Sterr.
We have lone- heard of "sea legs." of
"writer's cramp," of "housemaid's knee,'
of the bicyclists "hums Kyphosis bl
cycllstartum. we ourselves called It and
various other physical Idiosyncrasies re
sulting Irom certain habits of life, labors,
or practices. To tha catalogues tt seems
probable that we shall now have to add
another Item, to wit, the "motor mind.
By that we mean the more or less ha
bitual condition of mind Into which cer
tain autoraobilists get. apparently be
cause of and through their indulgence la
the fascinating practice, of operating mo-,
tor cars. There might at first sight be
roonr -for questioning which was the
cause and which the effect; whether the
"motor mind" was the- result of running
automobiles, or whether tha peculiar
style of running automobiles was the
result of the pre possession of the "motor
mind." But reflection upon the character
of that mind and a decent regard for the
repute of humanity must incline us to
ward the former theory.
The "motor mind." then, however ac
quired, dtvests its possessor of several
of the most admirable and desirable at
tributes of cultivated humanity. One of
them Is prudence. The unhappy victim
of this mental peculiarity becomes reck
less In the extreme. Over roads which
the normal man wmild traverse with
caution In broad dayHght he hesitates
not to rush at frantic speed which others
would regard as perilous and to be made
only for urgent need on wheels of steel
running on fixed tracks of steel from
which all other traffic la rigidly excluded,
be travels for no need save that of Idle
caprice on vulnerable tires of rubber along
roads without fixed tracks and traversed by
other vehicles. It Is to be doubted If the
records of human recklessness contain ac
count of any lack of caution or of common
care for safety comparable with that of
the possessor of the "motor mind."
Still more noteworthy, and still more re
grettable, is the abatement of pity, mercy
and all humane sentiments which follows
in the train of this disorder. The normal
Impulse of a man is not only to avcrid In
juring another, but also In ease of the In
fliction of injury to inquire solicitously as
to its extent and to endeavor to give all
possible aid. and make all possible repara
tion. All this 1s changed immediately upon
the development of "motor mind." New

PARIS. Dec lii Special.) Before next
summer rolls around the demolit on ot the
famous fortifications of Paris wU have
been beg-un. For tun years the government
has beeu talking: of such an action and now
tt has been definitely decided upon.
The fortifications are Interesting- because
of tbe curious race of peopld which Inhabit
them, made up of a conglomerate of
Apaches and honest c.tisena and known
unJer the general name of "fortifs." It
ia estimated thai they number something
like 10,000, and they are a people apart
from the Persians and the provincial
French alike. Of late years the native
French have been Joined by the riff-raff
of Spain. Italy and other European coun
tries, who. however, reradin no King r than
is necessary to make what Is in their opin
ion a tidy fortune and thereupon retire to
their native countries.
Whether you leave Paris by the north,
south, east or west, you are bound to pass
through this strange land, for tt enc.rrles
Parts abutting; on the great moat which
was part of the old-time defences of the
city. It Is a quarter of a m.le wide and
lta length might be said to bo lnde-int-o.
for it ia a complete circle. On Saturdays
and Sundays Its population Is enormously
increased by the inflaz of small families
with a few sous and a cold lunch on holi
day bent. It boasts of anything but a
monotonous landscape and there Is some
thlrg for all tastes. At the Ports du Pan Lin,
one of the gates of Paris, for Instance,
there Is a miniature AlfS, and there a fine
view of Paris, glittering in the m.dday
sun, can be obtained. Behind the XVTIth
arrondissement the herbage la so rich and
rfwa as to remind one of Normandy.
Near Levallols the country resembles the
Basque prov'.nc s and goats from that part
of France, watched over by their red
capped, sunburnt herders come from Hen-

and the peace of Paris leave him practl
ca.Iy undisturbed so long as he remains
there and does not enter the gates ot the
city. Even the boys develop a criminal
instinct and It is a comnwn occurrence
for little urchins et 10 years of age. greedy
ot publicity, to Indulge In savage and
aometimes fatal knife play. The singld
doctor, who. by tha way, la a rag-picker
by profession and an amateur doctor In his
spare time, says that the majority ot his
cases among; both the children and the
grown folks come from a too promiscuous
and careless use of knives, pistols and
guns.
The habitations take 0e form, princi
pally, of caravans, wblch can be easily
moved about the country, but many of
the more wretched cilisuns are not above
living in uoiea in the ground. M. Bouvier,
an inspector, one night near the Chatiilun
gate, dutcovered a hairy, anksmpl head
aliening out of a large hole and upon drag
siag tne man fortu learned that ha bad
ben living in that same hois for taa last
ten years, sleeping away the daya and
nigaLs and stealing vegetables la the evening-
for his food.
Kent, however, la not high enough In trie
fortifications, one would think, ta be be
yond the pocket ot anyone, for tt a year
one can oetaln a very respectable piece of
ground and a cabin thereon. For 17 a year
It la easy to obtain a q.uite pretentious
house and for (10 one has attached a very
considerable garden. Should these prices.
by any chance, seem exorbitant, one san
lodga free of charge on the slope which
runs along- the moat, where the ground
belonga to the stats. There is not, however,
very much of the state-owned ground
which remains unoccupied at tha present
moment. Some of the more astute of the
early settlers with a dosen stakes and
some wire netting marked out considerable
domains, and now offer portions ot them
for rent at from It to f3 a year, payable In
weekly Installments.
Prices Are Reasonable.
The prices that prevail In this curious
country are probably aa reasonable as are
to be found in any place in the world.
For Instance. It Is possible to have one's
hair cut or one's face shaved for tho be
stowal of a crust of bread or a cigar-end
on the dellg;hted barber. Many of the in
habitants who have some trade, such as
carpet beaters of tattooers are wise enough
not to ply them in the fortifications, but
make dally Journeys into Paris to obtain
the better prices there possible.
Curiously enough, each gate of the city
of Parts has rts distinctive settlement and
types. At Levallois a dozen ot these mis
erable outcasts, living- from hand to mouth,
have formed a socialistic company, com
bined labor, built several shanties, pur
chased a grinding wheel and reduced the
amount of work necessary to live upon
to the very least, for they take their turns
wtth the wheel inmaking- the rounds of
the streets of Paris sharpening- scissors
and knives. The entire dosen live on the
proceeds of these excursions and thus tt
Is only necessary for each man to work
but once In every twelve days.
Near the gate of Vlncennes a curious
business has grown up, that of providing;
rabblta" for the Parisian restaurants at
13 cents apiece and the smallness ot the
price will be understood when It is said
that the "rabbits" are' real'.y cats. At
Malakoff and M n trouge. the manufac
turers of halfpenny toys shound. Old
broken boxes are transformed In windmills,
spades and countless varieties of toys tor
children by the Ingenuity of the workers.
It Is at the Montroug-e gate that one of
the most famous characters of the forti
fications lives. He Is M. Vltcoq, and he
claims to have Invented no less than
twenty-three toys, many of which have
had enormous sales on the boulevards.
He has been an exhibitor at Lepine's fa
mous toy show In Paris since 1901. and
upon one occasion won the prefect of
police's gold medal, upon another a silver
he proudly hung- about tils shop. Practi
cally all his toys are made out of rub
bish and the majority of them out of
old tin, which he buys at tl per 100 pounds.
With such an outlay .In the course of a
year he turns out SCO boats. 10.0TO swings,
and lO.ono headings for looking glasses.
His wife, who spends most of her time
In teaching her neighbors the art of making-
toys from old tin boxes. Is a manu
facturer of paper flowers and dresses for
children's balls, and ahe proudly tells of
being- congratulated upon her designs by
the divine Sarah herself.
Raar BaslaeH Thrives.
Between the gates of Cligancourt and
Poissonlers In the innumerable multitude of
miserable huts, there is-a thriving rag busi
ness. It Is remarkably weil-orgunised and
the workers form. In reality, a co-operative
society with considerable capital and string
ent rules. The members have recently
erected a large sorting shed snd ware
houses at a cost of almost JW0. Each mem
ber delivers his harvest at the central
depot, where the weight is checked and the
purchase price paid according- to a tariff I
fixed by common consent. An account Is I
kept and every six months the profits of 1
the business, which In 1904 smounted to 1
tn.000, are divided pro rata with the re-;
ceipts of each of the members. :
In this district, also. Is to be found t
..... . . I
picturesque individual known as "the doc
tor," who g-ave me the startling information
about the promiscuous use of dangerous
weapons. He Is universally adored by these
rough vagrants, for he gives his scientific
advice absolutely free of charge. He Is a
ragpicker by profession and oddly enough
his pursuit of that calling; led to his ac
quaintance with medicine. It was through
the discovery in the dustbins .ot the city
of Paris of a lot of books on medicine that
he first began to study the subject. He
has recently been reading- some books which
he picked up on alcoholism, and is now
preaching- temperance to his fellow-workers
in the rag- business.
Paster AnaTeraoa.
One of the unique characters ot this
strange series of settlements Is Pastor An
derson, who is trying to civilise and reclaim
some of these outcasts through the medium
ot the young- generation. Every day at 4
o'clock he teaches the elements of reading
and the principles of morality to about
twenty little vagabonds, three parts naked.
The caravan makes a continuous tour ot
the fortifications, stopping- at each gate
until Anderson la confident that he has
planted seed which will bear good fruit.
Tbe headquarters of the foreign element
of this peculiar city Is the Montreull gate.
The German makes a specialty of basket
work and at daybreak every day perfect
swarms of women and children leave the
camp with baskets of all sorts for sale In

which they housed their stramre s-uests. he

In the former case their average earnings
are about ti a day with either violin or
guitar, and in the tatter from 8 tt 11 cents.

they made no less than JS0.
Maeh Hldeea Wealth.
There la a remarkable amount of hidden
wealth stored In these caravans and shan
ties. Many of the owners boast of hoards
of from 15,000 to 18,(100. and frorn J8,ot to

a Hungarian living- in a miserable caravan .
near Levallols was arrested and charged
with stealing a horse. With the object of
proving- to the police that there was no ne
cessity for his stooping to theft, he ex
hibited a pocketbook containing JiAiXiu,
Despite this "proof" of his honesty, how
ever, tha police arrested him and he was
returned to his native land to live the rest
of his life in ease and even luxury.
As a hiding place for criminals, this re
gion has no equal the world over. Six
months ago 130 police surrounded the camp
at the Montreull gate and Instituted an ex
tensive search, finding no less than eleven
stolen horses and, as a consequence, twenty-nine
Bohemians were arrested.
All this fascinating- and picturesque set
tlement la to be destroyed with the demo
lition of the fortifications, and the Inhab
itants scattered to the four winds. It will
be a severe blow to the sightseers, snd even
to the native' Parisians, who find lnfinte

alien quarter within the confines of their
