is fastened to a ring flxed about the centre of the

also be run over one's leather belt, and thus swung

Ufo of Paris is no longer what it was in old days,
that its bohc-mianism now takes a very mild form
and has been leavened by many conventions. This
is true in some degree of Rome also, though much
of the old Italian Bimpli :lty still remains. The
city is very small, the country is easily reached on
every side, from many of '.he busiest points even
In a few minutes. The climate makes outdoor life
natural ami easy, and the Italian is never excited
by the unconventional. You can sit down and eat
your dinner at a street corner and hardly excite
a passing: glance.
"It is vain to try to guess the number of artists
In Rome. The Circolo Artistico, or Artists" Club.
has a membership of several thousands: more than
eight hundred took part in a recent pageant. There
are some hundreds of foreign students, and of
these a large proportion are women. Out of sixty
or seventy Swedish and Norwegian art students
more than two-thirds are girls. Many of these
lead a most independent life, taking a studio with
a bedroom and living at small restaurants. The
English and some of the American girls usually
live in hotels or pensions, often with their fami
lies. Frequently two or three girls take a small
"The Via Margutta is, as throughout the last
century, the great haunt for artists. The place is
a perfect rabbit warren of studios, and very de
lightful some of them are. Space is little accounted
of in Italy, and an airy, lofty set of rooms may be
got for what seems a ridiculously small rent to
English or French ears.
"The Circolo is at the back of Via Margutta, a
long rambling building, with billiard rooms. read-
Ing rooms, a splendid ballroom, 'and a long cellar—
for it can be called nothing else— where the mem

wlih friezes and frescoes of suggestive patterns—
sausages and knives and forks in a conventional
design, skinny chickens, grapes and vine leaves,
and mottoes In every language of Europe. Ihe
smoking room has caricatures of members and or
their escapades, besides which there are some
Splendid paintings by well known artists.
"The ball given by the artists at Mi-Careme is
a gay and well managed affair, a mingling or
masks, fancy dress, the bohemian and the smart
world. Every one goes, and Queen Margherlta has
honored it with her presence more than once.
"Most of the foreign students are young men
and women who are fairly well advanced and have
come to Italy to finish -heir art education. T hey

whose studios are always open to them. All Ital

STARTS FOR EUROPE ON LA LORRAINE
SAYS HE IS GOING ABROAD FOR A
VACATION AND NOT BECAUSE
OF HIS HEALTH.
Charles M. Schwab, president of the United

His decision to sail yesterday was made after he
had seen Mr. Morgan on Wednesday. His pas

and George \V. Perkins, of the rirm of J. P. Mor

Mr. Schwab, whose face was ruddy, leaned
heavily on a cane which he held in his right hand.
He was in excellent spirits, and talked and laughed
with his friends ail the tirn-r they were on board.
He was ready to answer any questions, but pro
fessi i not to know what his plans wouki be on the
other side. "My arrangements for my trip abroad,"
he said, "were made so hurrkdly that, untii 1 ar

do. You tan say, however, thai I have not re

to sail on this steamship, and I have y>ne away
in such a hurry that 1 cannot fully rasJlM Bam
that 1 am sailing abroad. The reason for my hur
ried departure Is not because or' i»i htalih. but be
cause 1 want and need a vacation, like every one
else. I must X" iv\;!. >iow U 1 want to go at all.
because if 1 should wait much longer winter would

"What about the suit against the Steei Trust,

"Oh, you must see Mr. Gayley about that. Mr.
Schwab laughingly replied.
• I.^ it true that v.jii wMI try to con>olida:e the
English and German steel companies while you are
abroad?" , . .
"Really, that question Is too absurd to admit ..f
any answer. 1 can only repeat that business will
not enter into my trip abroad at J-.li"
When the sfc unship backed out into the middle
of the river, .Mr. Schwab wave.', goodby from the
deck, while hie friends gave him three cheers.

destruction takes place by itself. The Lord quotes
or refers to Old Testament Scripture over four hun
dred times, In Hagi;ai ii. 6, we read: "I wil shake
the heavens and the earth and th« sea.' Shaking
in the Scripture indicates a mighty revolution. As a
shaking process separates grain from its chaff, so
God will, by His shakings, separate good from evil.
Chri«t was "bold in His teachings, as Indicated when
be said "Woe unto you. scribes and Pharisees."
And 1 would not be surprised, if Christ came to
earth again and spoke as Be did when here before,
that He would be cruciiled, not by a mob of men.
but by orthodoxy.

The vestry of the Church of the Ascension, of
West New-Brighton. Staten Island, one of the most
popular Episcopal churches on the Uland. seme tlia©
ago decided to tear down the old parish hall of the
church, which Is out of date, and erect a much
larger one on modern plans.
Fountain Cemetery is owned by the church, and
adjoins the edifice. The property extends from
Richmond Terrace to Barker-st- To carry out their
plans it was necessary that more land be aoQulred.
The site decided upon on which to build the new
parish hall Is in the northwestern port of the ceme
tery. Some fifty years ago thirty bodies had been
buried in this part of the cemetery.
It was decided, however, to remove these bodies
and rebury them in another part of the cemetery.
To do this permits had first to be secured from th»
Hoard of Health. On Monday application was made
to the Health Board for these permits, and last
night they were receive.! by the vestry. To-day or
to-morrow men will be put to work to remove tha
bodies and as soon as this la completed the work
ot building the parish ball will be begun.
The new parish hall when completed will be a two

TENEMENT OWNERS VFS7 FILE NAMBL
A PROVISION OF THE LAW WHICH HAS BEES IN
EXISTENCE FOR SEVEN TEARS TO
The Tenement House Department yesterday sent
out a circular letter to all real estate agents and
owners of tenement houses, so far us they are
known in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Thai letter
calls attention to the provisions of the law which
requires the filing of the names and addresses of
the owners of tenement houses. There has been
such a law for the last sever, years, but it has
been a dead letter Formerly the names were to
be filed with the Board of Health, but now the
Tenement House Department is intrusted with
the affair. Another change in the law. made at
the sus:-»estion of the Tenement House Commis
sion, makes the posting OS any official notice in a
conspicuous place in a tenement a legal service
upon the owner, when he has neglected to file his
name and address. ■
Deputy Commissioner Lawrence \ elller laM
thai as the law row stood it was a distinct ad
vantage to owners to have their names on file,
since some notice" which might be postea would
be of a kind that would tend io drive tenants away.
