ERS• OF ANAME PROTECT IT ACTRESS IS RESTRAINED .FROM ASSUMING COGNOMEN FA MOUS IN HISTORY. (By Associated Press Cable.) Paris, Jan. 10.-The French courts decided in a recent case that an actress may be restrained from the use of an assumed name by its real owner. She may not escape an injunction even by changing the spelling of the name, as long as the pronunciation is not altered by the change of spelling. Mile. Gina Recamioer, noted as the actress with the most beautiful feet in Paris, was sued by the descendants of the famous Mine. Recamier, General Recamier and Dr. Recanier. They successfully obtained an injunction against Gina's use of the name "Re camler," or even "Recanmie," on the ground that the leaving off the final "*r" did not in French alter the pro nunciation of the name. Mile. Recamier, whose real name is Ageorges, explained in court that the name had been suggested to her by Andre de Fouquires, who, while judg ing in a beautiful-feet competition, said, when he eaw Gina reclining on a couch, "She looks just like Minme.

Lee-Wil son, who conducts a mission in the district of the White Nile, a thou sand miles south of Khartounm, has arrived in England with interesting facts' about a race of negro giants, who inhabit the Bahr-el-Ghazal, 200 miles west of the river. These na tives practice neither cannabalism nor humnan sacrifices and hav\'e some admirable traits. UnUke their neigh bors, they are never cruel to women or children, and their habits of dec orating themselves are solmewhat akin to the people of civilization. For reasons unknown even to themselves, the adults all have six of their lower teeth removed. Of those remaining, however, they take the most scrupulous care, cleaning them daily with a native brush and wood ash. They take much pride in dressing their hair, powder their faces and wear ostrich feathers. They believe in a supreme being, to whom they make sacrifices through their chiefs or witch doctors. MNSEEK THILLS IN AFIIAN MOUNTAINS (By Associated Press Cable.) Berlin, Jan. 10.-German alpinists, who swarm in Switzerland and the Tyrol every summer, and scorn the services of professional guides even fQr such summits as the Matterhorn, Moat Blanc and the Jungfrau, are now seeking adventure farther afield. The Hanover section, of the German Alpine club has appropriated $2,000 to build a hut on Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak of the African con linent. Kilimanjaro is located on the northeastern boundary of German East Africa, and overtops Mont Blanc by some 4,000 feet. The moun tain consists of two peaks, the high eat of which has an altitude of 19, 710 feet.

Peking, Jan."*10.-Since the Chinese parliamenttceased to exist the presi dential mandates are the only laws which are being promulgated. Accord ing to western ideas they are often curious documents. The picturesque oriental phraseology of former Impe rial edicts is largely retained, but they are generall. more accurate in state ment of facts, and they bear evidence that the man behind them is a strpnger character than the ex-prince regent, who, two years ago, gave up his son's throne with very little fighting. The effect of Yuan Shith Kai's man dates extends only so far as his power reaches, and that is not yet sufficient to re-establish the system of annual payments from the provinces to the central government, such as existed under the Manchu regime. Many of the mandates, like the former edicts, are still-born. Nevertheless, the pres Ident's expressions of opinion, and his orders appear daily, his object evi dently being to lee the country know the difficulties of his position and of the nation, and to show that he is en deavoring to right many evils and to rule for the great good of the country. Righteousness and Reform. Many of the mandates are exhorta tions to righteousness and reform. Some of them deal with serious mat ters of state and international politics, while others read like sermons. One which appeared recently says: S"Gambling is an extremely harmful pursuit. By it time is wasted, business is impeded, families are ruined and, wlmt is worse still, the minds of those persons who indulge in it are weak ened. Its deleterious influence under mines all virtues and breeds corrup tion. I am amazed to find that at present this baneful habit has a foot ing in the official circles as well as Samidst the people. This practice was started during the last years of the Ching dynasty, when thie Manchu aris tocrats and high officials threw off all restraint. The exaimple set by those in high stations was followed by the pco ple, and today we find it hard to make the people break away fromll this Ierni clious pursuit. "I learn that many officials are still addicted to this evil habit. Are they not aware of the ileavy responsibilities devolving uipon thecir shoulders? A new nation has just Ieen founded and the vast amount of constructive work of this new nation requires all the energy her officials can give. After office hours they caul profitably em ploy their time studying good books and making researches. Pleasure may be found in the cndl.avIr to advance one's knowledge and iilcultivate virtue." Instructions are given the police for the arrest of all offienders, no matter what posts they hohl. and to confiscate the money with which they gamble, to be used to reward the police Ind gen jlarmerie.

(By Associated Press Cable.) Berlin, Jan. 10.-Gerniany w\\ill have eighty million inhabitants in 1930, twice its population when the empire was founded in 1871, according to an estimate based on the vital statistics for the empire for 1912. Thie non Prussian states have come to the res cue with 2,000 more births than in 1911, offsetting the decrease of 3,04' in births in Prussia, on which sucl e gloomy assumptions of Germany's I stagnation in polpulation were based when the Prussian statistics were pub lished a few weeks ago. a The number of deaths in 1912 wase the smallest ever recorded and the number of marriages the greatest, so the statistics on the whole make a most satisfactory showing. The de cline in the birth rate continues, but the decrease is the smallest registered in years. The rate was 29.1 births to t every thousand inhabitants, as cornm pared with 29.5 in 1911, 30.7 in 1910 - and 32 in 1909. The population of the empire was I increased by 889,887 through the excess of births over deaths,* the surplus be inag almost 100,00 grr.ater than in 1911.
