So all niuht long the pine leaves fretted and sighed and begged the wind to take them for a sail. And all night long the wind answer ed back: "Xo, wc can't take you you arc needed where you are I" In the morning some people who lived nearby went walking under the pines and one said- "Thi is the poor the creek. "What are you talking about down! old pine tree that has been whining there?" asked the green pine leaves; I and fretting all nieht." "you all seem to be having a lot of i fun !" "Fun!" shouted the maple leaf again in rollicking tones, "indeed, we are!" i "What's it all about?" said the pine leaves rather crossly. "Can't you even i tell a person what vou are talking j about?" "To be sure we will," said the oak 'I wonder what it wants," said the other person. "I wish it was happy, for I love its leaves that stay green after the otherr have blown away." "What's that? what's that?" whis pered the pine leaves, "somebody loves us even if wc arc just common ! green all the year through!" I "Think how lonesome those kind SPANISH INFANTA LAYS BARE SECRETS OF COURT leaf slipping on his dignity which had j people would be," whispered another pine leaf, "if we had gone off and left our pine tree all alone!"

WHITEWASHED ATTIC ROOM PLANNED TO INVITE REPOSE Clever Arrangement of Furnishings in Spaces Not Often. Used. THIS attic room with its whitewash ed walls and blackened beams In vites repose. The clever arrange ment of the spacious drawers under the enves of tho house on one side, nnd the closet, which much be delightfully roomy on the staircase, Is an Idea for these spaces which usually harbor boxes and trunks not opened frequently. The table built around the rough chim ney Is most artistic and serves very comfui tubly, as a desk, while the enamel ed bed, with Its cover of white dimity, and washstand to match, seems to fit so happily with the whitewashed walls. The windows daintily curtained In white com plete this very unusual room Cheesecloth, by the way, makes the most attractive curtains of this type and miy be bought for as little as seven tents a yard, while each visit to the laundry, makes them more sheer and dainty. Of course, the wide floor boards and blackened beams of this old attic have aided a decidedly artistic scheme, but the genernl Idea will appeal to those who have wondered what to do with at tic rooms.

In the Journal Aenhl, of Toklo, there wna rectntl- publhhctl an article pur Iiortlnjr to ahovv how JnpaTi might have obtained control of the Havvnllnn lalamlt. The article wns written by the Jflpnnese historian, Shtea. An EiirIIsIi transla tion, made by the Japan Herald, fol Iowa: On March 10, 1S81, the late Emperor, who was thon staying at the Aknsaka palace, received nn application for n neerct audience. It wns ascertained that the request was from tho Umperor u jinwait, wno narl already been re ceived In nlldlcnco on tho 6th of the same month and to whose visit the Umperor had responded at the Shlha detached pnlaco, which was placed nt the tllsposnl of the visitor. His majesty wondered why tho Hawaiian sovereign had requested a secret audience, and asked whether he wns accompanied by a state minister or chamberlain, who was In his sulto. Inasmuch as the Hawaiian Kmpcror re Pllod that ho wns nccompanled by no body, his majeslv was perplexed, but as thero won no objection to his receiving the soverelRti of a treaty country, Ills ma jesty received him In person In the Im perial chamber. After both sovereigns had rxchnnBed compliments and had shnken hands-(lt Is stated that the Jop anese Pmptror had never shaken hands with any foreign sovereign before the fifth of that month when he for tho first time shook hands with the Hawaiian Em peror) the Imperial visitor expressed his gratitude for the warm treatment extend ed to him by the court and poeple, nnd expressed his admiration for shrines, Jap anrse theatrical performances and other entertainments. The speech was Interpreted by n mater of ceremonies to tho great pleasure of the Kmpcror. Tho Hawaiian hoverelgn, continuing, said that tho natives of Ha waii are decreasing In number, while the number of foreigners was fast Increasing, and that If this state of affnlrs should last longer he could easily conjecturo the fate of his country. He, therefore, asked that the Emperor of Japan should liclp him nnd make efforts to savo his coun try from ruin. He had no son, but only a nltce, whom he wished to send to Eng land to be educated and cause her to eventually succeed to the throne. Al though It might bo nn Indiscreet proposal, he trusted that tho Japanese Emperor might allow him to wed his niece to a prlnre of the Iniperlnl blood of Japan. The Emperor MelJI listened to his dcslro nnd, after a few moments, stated that he would give him n leply after deliberate consideration. The Hawaiian sovereign said that he had not discussed the matter even with his state minister or chamber lain and did not want it Known 10 a.u one except Marquis Inouye, the Minister for Foreign Affairs. In November of that year, the master of ceremonies who acted as Interpreter was sent to Hawaii as an envov with an Imperial letter to the Hawaiian sovereign. Mr. Shiga hns vis ited Hawaii three times, but could learn nntlilnir relntlntr to the matter from the old documents kept In tho Hawaiian Gov ernment However, according to Mr. Armstrong, the minister, who died a few years ago, tho Japanese Emperor declined the proposal. During a recent visit, however, Mr. Shiga learned the truth, and published the dates, because the sentiment enter tained by the Hawatlans at that time hns an Important bearing upon tho pres ent development of Japan, namely, the abolition of cxtrn-terrltorlallty In Japan was first proposed by the Hawaiian Gov ernment accompanied by other powers, while ns a result of tho efforts of tho King of Hawaii, the number of Jnpnne-i living In that Island now reaches 50,000, who remit to Japan 12.OCO.000 yen per annum. Pennant for Milwaukee The close of the American Association's race yesterday marked tho end of another tight battle for the pennant In President Chlvlngton's league. Not until Saturday was Milwaukee definitely known as the winner, LoulhVllle being a contender DIFFICULTIES OF GETTING NEWS ADDED TO BY CENSORS Correspondents Never Informed What Jrlntter Comes Under Ban. An Idea of the difficulties that are being experienced by tho Associated Press nnd the newspapers of tho United Stales In getting war news may be gath ered from the letter of a London cor respondent of ono of tho New York newspapers which was published In tho London Times of tho 11th. Some notion of what tho llrltlsh censorship of tho press amounts to, nnd how blunderingly It Is administered, appears In the fol lowing portions of the complaint made by thld American correspondent In Lon don: Alt of us recognize the necessity nnd desirability of a press censorship at such a time. Not one of us would wittingly send any Information the publication of wheh could be In the slightest degree detrimental to tho Interests of the coun try In which we nro guests. Neverthe less, It Is Impossible longer to disguise from ourselves tho fact that wo nro treated as "suspect." Wo huvo asked for hut received no uiiui jiimiuu iil wuui is to do cunsiucrett I a matter that may not bo cabled to America, wo novo discovered by tho costly process of experiment that neither matter which appears In tho London newspapers after passing the censor, nor even the olllelal , announcements of the press bureau nre necessarily available for publication In America, both being frequently stopped altogether or muti lated out of all senso and meaning. This we can only discover when tho news papers come over from America nnd from Information from our American headquarters. All tho ordinary relations between client nnd merchant have been stopped as between ourselves and tho various cable compnnlcs. Wo ennnot find out from the companies whether our mes sages have been sent or not. At an hour In the morning when It Is obviously too late for matter that Is not already on tho wire to bo In time for publication, we cannot find out whether any of our messages are still In hand so that we may cancel or abbreviate them. Any request for Information meets with the reply: "Our office Is In tho hands ot tho censor; we nro not allowed to an swer any questions or give any Infor mation." One finds no more satisfaction In ap plying to the censorship Itself, My own expcrlenca Is as follow?: The day after tho censorship had been established I called at the War Office nnd sent my rard with an Inquiry form duly filled up to the chief ccnior. With very little delay I was conducted to his ofilce. My card was taken In, and a gentleman came out who told me that the chief censor was engaged. He talked to me vagluely for a fow minutes In the lobby, but was, re gretfully, unable to give me any Informa tion with the slightest degree of preclso ness beyond the fact that mllltnry move ments were not to bo reported. More re cuntly I wished to nsk the censoi n def inite question, and again called nt the War Ofilce. I was again conducted to tlvo door ot his ofilce without delnyr Anoth.. gentleman came out and talked wllh l for a few minutes In tho lobby. Th! chief censor was out. He thought hi would be back In about an hour, but h. himself, could not denl with tho queslltfr, I asked a very simple one. To show that our complaints are not made without good reason I would like to give a fow examples of our experiences I could fill a column with similar haul penlngs. One day this week I received a cahle from Now York Informing m. that nothing nt nil of tho Previous mi,..: cablo service had got through In tlms for publication. This means that a mes sage filed hero at 3:00 p. m. London lima or 3:30 p. m. Now York time, had not been delivered nt 8 a. m., London time tho following morning. A few days prI vlously I, received a cnble telling me that of some 5000 words filed here between 9 p. m. and 2 a. m. considerably leg than one-fourth got through In time tor pub. Mention. A message filed by one of my conferet on a Wednesday night was not delivered In New York till tho following Friday afternoon. Thnt this was not due to the matter being objectionable Is presumably proved by the fact that a more fortunate correspondent, who took tho same story from tho same English newspaper several hours later, got It through In time for publication In tho Thursday morning's lssuo of his paper. Examples of this kind nro of dally occurrence. A morn amnzlng example of tho censor- snip is me roiiowing: xne olficlal press bureau Issued nt 9 p. m. on August a tho account of tho naval nctlon in the bight of Heligoland, a story that thrilled England from end to end. Thero Is prob nbly hnrdly n newspaper In tho 1Tntted States that would not hnvo published a speclnl edition for that story. But what happened to tho Amcrlcnn correspondents In London? Every man hurried that of ficial account, Just ns It wns Issued, to the cablo offices, and the censors np. pnrently consigned their messages to the wnste-paper basket, for they have not arrived In AmcYlcn yet. The American people would hnvo known nothing of that splendid feat of the llrltlsh nnvy until the English newspapers reached them but for the fact that by somo fortunate accl. dent for It can only have been nn accl dent the dispatch of Just ono correspon dent escaped the censorship and got through.
