"U*ou:i you like to board for 50 cents a week. fcduding the baby— if you had one?" asked an East fide worker y_si<?rday of a Tribune reporter. "I know where you can e*o it, and I believe th!s house Is the cheapest boarding house in this big ciiy. Yes. cf course it is Italian. The Poles. Hebrews and Hungarians are excessively frugal in their eating. bat I don't believe even they could run a boarding iouse on such slender lir.es as that."

A I.AH'IK PROPORTION OF FOREIGNERS IS WOKEN— BOHEMLANISM IN* A MTL.P FORM. A woman recently returned from Rome talks In terestingly of thp Hf<» of the art students In that city. "W« sometimes bear," she says, "that the student 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 apartment together. "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 bers dine Its walls decorated by many hands, 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 Rre on the best of terms with the older artists, whose studios are always open to them. All Ital ians are refreshingly fret? from any ling or standing on their dignity, and have no fear of compromising it by being hai!-fell well-mel with boys, srul gi:is. The students among themselves lead thoroughly cheery lives. To man) life is something of a struggle, but it is a light hearted or.<-. it is common enough for them to dine every night at a different place :n parties of from twenty to sixty in artists' restaurants, when- an appetiz ing dinner of three courses, with coffee, la served for tout a lira. Perhaps after dinner the whole company will migrate, dancing and singing, to a cafe, and later on to one of the cantlne, or cellars, where they will order wine and music, and dan ; till two in the morning. Surprise parties are very popular. A do» students invade a sturiio. e.-u-h bringing a contribution to the supper; these are often held on the wide, flat roof of the house. which allows of a dance afterward, or banjo play- Ing and chorus singing goes on half the night: or a picnic is suddenly proposed, nnd a band of boys and girls rush along the jtreel buying provisions f;-^ they go. and assembling to eat them under the Ilexes In the beautiful '■.:.■• - •• ens. As the summer advances there is a revolt from hard work, and a number go off to some mountain osteria. where they spend a week painting and basking In the open air." • - NEW INTEREST IX DELFT WARE. SPECIAL VOGUE IN DESK ARTICLES— FALL NOVELTIES IN' TABLEWARE. A large quantity of alleged delft Is Import into this country every year, and sold over the coun ters for the real Dutch ware, but it is not delft at all. Color is the most Important guide in Judging delft. In real delft the background is not more or less bluish, but pun white. The only part of th* piece that Is blue is th.> design, which in ■ deep ir.digo tint, the secret of whoso production in known only in the Holland delft factories. The texture of true d>lfi Is hard. greatly resembling pnrce-luin. Many of the imitations ar*> pretty wares, but they are not delft. Factories all over the -world have for years ■■;•, reproduce thn process of the shrewd Dutchmen but to no avail. 'I '• ■ best imi tations are "made In Germany." One of the best known comes from Bonn, but It Is a soft ware, somewhat resembling majolica. The entire surface, too, has a bluish look, as if the design had "run" and spread over the white.

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 rive, 1 don't know where I shall no or what I shall do. You tan say, however, thai I have not re signed, and also thai lam nut in bad health It was not until last night that 1 made up my mind 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.

"What about the suit against the Steei Trust, Mr. Schwab? 1 , M "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?" , . .

This is the third lecture of the series of ten which will go to make np his so-called "Directory of the Devout Ui<-. I think it has been too much the habit of mis sionaries to destroy rather than to fulfil. When I was lecturing >•, India many people of high educa tion and culture came to hear me. They asked: "la tins Christianity? We thought that Christianity was something that destroyed." Firs! fulfil, then 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.

Among the grievances that the dealers have against the American News Company is that recently It has in creased Its charges for delivering papers 50 per cent and has stopped delivering afternoon papers. They also complain that books and magazines which are received from the company with th.> understanding that they may be returned before the end of the month are frequently kept on their bands because the company suddenly curtails' the time limit.

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. 7
