London Chronicle.
The approaching marriage of Don Marco
Borghese -with Mile* Ysabel Porges has
revived interest in The famous Borghese
ghost story. The lady who succeeded
to the honors of the beautiful but no
torious Pauline Bonaparte was Lady
Gwendoline Talbot. -daughter of the Earl
of Shrewsbury. Ske was a very lovely
woman, and adored Ln Rome on account of
her charity. She died a vic\im to duty
during the cholera visitation of 1840, when
Ehe devoted herself in the most heroic
manne rto nursing the very poorest. Her
funeral was made the occasion of an ex
traordinary demonstration, the students
of the university- insisting upon dragging
the hearse to Santa Maria ' Maggiore,
wiere the body was buried in the gorgeous
family chapel builrt by Paul V. The
Prince .Borghese had himself placed a
sapphire ring of great value upon his
wife's linger on her wedding day,* and in
sisted that it should be buried with her,
and himself -watched the soldering of the
leaden coffin.
A few days after the funeral a poor
■woman was arrested charged with the
theft of a. sapphire ring which had evi
dently belonged to the Princess Borghese,
since it bore on the reverse her name and
the date of her marriage, 1835. The wom
an asserted that while she wa9 praying
in the Borghese chapel the saintly prin
cess had appeared to her, and had given
her the ring. On recognizing the gem.
Prince Borghese ordered the coffin to be
opened in his own presence and in that
of several other well -known persons who
had watched its sealing up. None of the
seals' were broken, but the hand was
slightly moved, and the ring was gone.
Much struck by the strange coincidence,
the prince withdrew the charge, and edu
cated the children of the accused, one of
whom is still living, and is well known in
the Italian literary -world.

A Busy Young Woman on Her Way
The girls who gave an interesting exhibition
of a new and seemingly profitable industry
all got into the car together and sat down in
a row. There ■were six of them, and five de
voted their entire attention to the sixth,
who bore herself with the calmness of con
scious superiority. From their dress and
appearance it was evident that they were
on their way home from the factory or the
shop. Prom their conversation it appeared
that some social furctlon of large Importance
to them was to take place on the following
evening. Each of the five carried in her hand
a small parcel wrapped up in paper. They
waited in manifest impatience for the sixth
to declare herself. (
"You first, Mary," she said in a bnsincss
like way, when she was'ready to begin opera
tions. ' I
Mary handed over her parcel. Tho other
passengers looked on with interest. The girl
opened the parcel, took out from it a pieca
of new ribbon, perked her head on one side
and studied the ribbon.
"It's for my hair," said Mary, rather timid
The other girl noddtd, studied the ribbon
some more, crossed her krues, laid the ribbon
on the resting place so formed, aud with re
markably deft fingers began twisting it in and
out and pulling it this way and mat. Pres
ently she stopped and held it up and the other
passengers saw that it had become a bow.
She laid it against Mary's hair, studied its
effect, twisted and pulled it same more and
then handed it to Mary.
"Ten cents/ she said.
Mary handed over lv cents. The girl put
her money into her purse and turned to
another of her companions.
"You next," sire said.
"It's for my neck," said the one addressed,
handing over her parrel. ,
This parcel also contained a ribbon, which
was fashioned into a bow for the neck and
fitted on its owner, who turned over 10 cents
like the first when the bow was made. A
third girl then presented her parcel with its
ribbon. The bowmaker worked fast and skil
fully, without paying any attention to the
curious looks east at her and her work by
the other pe«ple in the car. The bows were
so stylishly fashioned that it was' probable
that she was employed by a dressmaker or a
milliner. At any rate she was able.to earn
50 cents, 10 cents from each of her com
panions, before she got off. the car, and their
pleased looks of admiration at the bows in
dicated that they thought the money well
Lady Aberdeen Sends Them an Ad
dress Written by Herself.
Each of the members of the Lady Aberdeen
Literary Society, of a private school in Chi
cago, received a beautiful little book from
Lady Aberdeen, containing an address to
young girls, written by herself. In each
book was a card, bearing the following mes
"Therefore, let the aims of our court be:

Her Mccc Conducted a Bonnet Shop
in \ew York.
The most delightful "backer" in the world
is Sarah Bernhardt. It will be remembered
that a few years ago la grand«s Sarah's niece,
Mile. Yvette de la Rhcda, opened a bonnet
shop in the Thirties near Filth avenue. Sarah
supplied the finds, and gave eclat to the
opening by her-presence-. All that was four 1
or five years agp. M rhen Sarah arrived- in
New York this winter she was met with the
unpleasant news that her two hat-making
protegees had failed and lost all the money
which 3he had lent them. Sarah did not scold
them, as. a commonplace aunt and patron
might have' done. Instead, she kissed them
tenderly, and, with her glorious smile, said:
"You are both pretty and winning little
Parisiennes. and you have become bank
rupt in the land of minions! Bravo, my
dears! I am sure I could never have done
that. ' Now, Shall we try our luck in Lon
don?" And she threw, a bundle of banknotes
into Saryta's lap.
Woman's World
She Now Leaves Her Guests to En-
tertain Themselves,'
The Freedom From Restraint Is De-
lightful, bat Sensitive Visitors
Fml Neglected.
It is becoming more and more the fashion
in the circles that are called "smart" for
the hostess to allow to her guests and also
to herself complete independence of ucticn.
An invitation nowadays >nerli& literally
"Come and eat and drink and be merry and
do as you chocse." An up to d^te chatelaine
considers that her duty is done if she pro
\ides for thj creature comforts of ht r guesu.
and there her responsibility for their well
bt?ing ends.
Their amusements they must more or l«-ss
rrovlde for themselves, and woe betire a sen
sitive visitor who has not "caught on" to
modern methods, and who has "feelings"
that are easily hurt.
"I love to go among those people now,"
remarked a society girl recently, "for the
entire freedom from restraint Is delightful,
but at first 1 was greatly taken aback by
the way 1 was left to my own devices, and
it makes me laugh to think how i spent my
first, morning as a houiw guest in cne of the
smart houses. I was told that my breakfast
would be brought to my room, and that
everybody did as he liked until' luncheou. It
seemed rather nice at first when a tempting
little tray was brought in to me after I had
had my bath, and 1 discussed my breakfast
and a novel in great comfort; but when I
was dressed and wa3 roady to Join the fes
tivities I felt rather at a loss, particularly
as I saw from my window my hostess canter
ing gaily away with several of our party for
a morning ride. However, I plucked up
courage after a while and went down stairs.
It was a huge house, and as I had arrived
the evenfns before, after dark, I of course
did not know my bearings, tut I met a
iriendly footn'an, who told me some of the
guests were in the morning room, and showed
me the way. There I found a couple of eld
ladies gossiping over their embroidery. They
were very kind, and after talking with me
a little while they asked me if I would not
like to go out, saying that I would be sure
to find some of the party on the grounds.
Glad to escape, I hurried back to ray room,
and there I sat down and actually cried, I
felt so lonely and out of It all. However, I
soon brought common sense to my aid. I
realized that r.o neglect was intended; that
it was undsubtedly the customary way of
treating a. gu*t-t, and that if I wanted to have
a good time I must look out for myself. So I
dried my -yes, made myself look as' nice
as possible and'was'ready to greet cordially
ttoe riding i arty when they returned at
luooheou time. After that I got on famously.
I in^de my plans the evening before for the
next morning, and found aiy hostess mest
kind about frrthering every expressed wish,
so that now, as I say, I greatly i refer the
modern fashion to the old conventional meth
ods which are frequently so tiresome to the
entertainer and the entertained."
In England Jit great houses this feeling of
isolation to a stranger is very pronounced.
No one makes the slightest effort to make
any one of the large party of invited guests
feel at home, and a newcomer must farm a
circle, so to speak, before she can hope to
uijoy herself.
•I thought," said a charming and clever
American woman, "whjen we were invited
to stop a week at the R—s' that I would at
ieast number Lady R among my friendly
acquaintances, but I really do not think that
if I had met her unexpectedly a fortnight
after my visit to her she would have even
recognized me, 1 saw so little of her. The
first evening I arrived there I went up to her
after dinner, and explaining that I was very
tired, apologised for going to my room so
early- She It eked at me ■j.ith faint surprise.
•But why not?' rhe queried, and I recognized
that I had coirmitted a solecism. After that
I went off without bidding good nlgtit to any
cne, and felt that I was an atom of too little
consequence to be missed. I do not think
there Is anything to take the conceit out of
nn American woman who esteems herself a
social light at home like a visit at a regular
tiptop fashionable English country hou3e."
Miss Knollys Has an Enviable Posi
tion at Conrt.
A very plain and unpretentious woman oc
cupies, to-day, in England, a place which
the first ladies of the land might well de
sire. Miss Knollys has for years been the
companion and trusted friend of the Princess
of Wales, and now has as much influence
with Queen Alexandra as any woman in
The princesses are devoted to the gentle
little woman, and the king is her good friend.
It is said that King Edward will make her a
peeress in her own right so that she may
be eligible to one of the high places near the
person of her majesty.
This question of places in the new court
is causing many heart burnings, and, al
though the new sovereign is too tactful to
make speedy and sweeping changes, there
are removals and rumors of removals. Some
of the old incumbents have been pensioned.
Others, who do not need pensions, have
simply been dropped.
One of the two East Indian attendants, who
always assisted Queen Victoria to and from
her carriage, has already gone back to India,
and it is said that the other, will follow. As
a matter of fact, little, that is .definite is
known about the prospective changes.
The stock of presentation jewels and trin
kets marked "V. R. I." which was left by
the late queen, is being conferred, by King
Edward, upon his mother's friends and serv
itors. ■ -
Pianint and Reader \ece»»arj- Ad
juncts in Spanish Work Shops.
A cigar manufacturing firm ia Trenton, N.
J., is attracting the attention of the local
labor world by certain innovations for main
taining order among and Holding the atten
tion and increasing the efficiency of the 200
young -women clgarmakers employed in Its
factory. A piano has been placed in the
large workroom, and a woman is employed
to play it for two hours each day. To keep
the girls off the streets at noon a teacher has
been hired to give free singing lessons at
the factory during the noon hour.
While these may be innovations in New
Jersey and elsewhere in the northern states,
the scheme is not either new or original.
Nearly every large cigar factory in Cuba has
its reader or musician. Cigarette factories
in Spain are similarly equipped. The reader,
either a man or a woman, is employed to
read aloud to employes from the latest Span-
tsh novels or from the daily newspapers. The
musician fills the same role as that of the
performer engaged in the New Jersey fac
tory. The experience of the Cuban cigar
manufacturers has been that this -method -of
chaining the mind of a -worker while his or
her fingers are employed is not only produc
tive of more and "better work, but adds im
measurably to the good order of the factory
and the good temper and cheerfulness of
the operatives.
The -wonder is that this system of combined
amusement and instruction has not been
more widely adop*ed. There are innumerable
factories and workshops in every city in
which readers or musicians could be em
ployed. Instead of detracting from the
amount or character of the -work, 1t would
lead to renewed interest on the part of the
workers and greater effort in their daily em

A Circular on the Bnrlingtun-X. p..
G. \.-Alliance.
Lee. Higginson & Co., of Boston, who
are recognized as representing Burlington
interests, have sent out a circular in
which the proposed control of the road by I
the Great Northern and Northern Pacific
is treated explicitly and frankly. The i
circular says that the bonda are to be se
cured by collateral pledge of all the Bur
lington stocks which may be 'acquired by
the northern roads and will bear interest
from July l, 1901, maturing July 1, 1921,
but will be redeemable at option July 1,
1906. or on any coupon day thereafter.
The circular says:
The amount of "Q" stock outstanding on
Feb. 15, IWI, including the 10 per cent in
crease recently authorized and offered to tha
stockholders at par, is $109,206,400. There was
also outstanding on that date "Q" 5 per cent
bonds of 1903 convertible into "Q" railway
company at par to the amount of %1, 081,200, a
total of $111,287,600. Two hundred dollars in
4 per cent bonds for each share of stock
would require an issue of bonds of $222,575,200.
The total annual Interest on the maximum
issue of these pew 4 per cent bonds would be
$8,.903,000. The" income available to meet this |

bonds will be (a) the net income of the "Q" |
system, and (b) the combined net income of

The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy showed
net income applicable to dividends in the year

Xorth-WeNtern Road Plannlns Xew
Terminals In Cblc-ago.
-Vetr TbrA; Sun Special Senile*
Chicago. May 9. —Plans for an elaborate
improvement of the Chicago terminals of
the North-Western railway are under
consideration by officers of that company.
Executive, officials of. the corporation in
this city are extremely reticent about
discussing the subject, stating that they
wish to place the plans, with drawings,
before the directors of the road before
making them public. The next meeting
of the stockholders and directors will be
held in this city June 7.
Among the moves said to be under con
sideration is an entirely new passenger
station at Kinzie and Wells streets, to re
place the present building, which, on ac
count of the growth of the through and
suburban business of the system, has
proved inadequate. This new station, it
is said, will involve an expenditure of
more than $1,000,000.
M. & St. \.. Beaten.-
The Minneapolis & St. Louis road was de
feated in its contention that only 2 per cent
should be paid as gross earnings to the state
upon that portion of the line between W'in
throp and New Ulm. The property in ques
tion was formerly known as the Minne
apolis, New UJm & Southwestern, and as a
new line it would have been entitled to es
cape under the law with a 1 per cent tax
for the first three years and a 2 per cent tax
for the following seven years, after which it
would come in for the regular tax of 3 per
cent. When the line was absorbed by the
Minneapolis & St. Louis the state authori
ties placed it upon the list as an old road and
Judge Lewis, of the Ramsey county district
court, says the state officials did right.
S. P. Colonist Movfiuent.
San Francisco, May 9.—The Southern Pa
cific passenger department has completed its
statistics on the west-bound colonist move
ment, which began. Feb. 1 and ended May 5.
During this time, the number of people who
came from the east, both colonist and sec
ond-class, was 20,434, as against 8,005 second
class passengers for the same period of 1900.
Of this number, 16,945 wer colonists or trav
eled on colonist rates.
\>w Eiport Flour Rate.
In utter despair of ever maintaining the ex
port flour business upon a 25-eent basis
freight officials yesterday made the formal
announcement of a 2u 3-10-cent rate, saying
that the reduction would hold good only for
this month, though those posted upon the
subject consider that it .will be found impos
sible to'restore tbe rate to the higher level
for a long time to come. , '
Milwaukee Makes a Break.
The Milwaukee road has decided to ignore
the association in the matter of rates for
the Woodman convention and has announced
that it will make a flat, one-fare rate from
all points on its lines. The other lines will be
compelled to make the same rate. Half-rate
tickets will be on sale from all points out
side a radius of 200 miUs from St. Paul on
June 8 to 10, and frem points inside the radius
on June 11, 12 and 18. On June 8, 9 and-10
rates of a fare and a third will apply from
all points within a radius of 2,000 miles.
A Great Depot.
After the completion of improvements now
under way it is declared that toe St. Paul
union depot, will be one of the very finest in
the entire country, rivaling even the famous
station at St. Louis. The improvements con
template an expenditure of $400,000 and the
enlargement of. the train shed capacity from,
nine tracks to sixteen. The Milwaukee
freight shed is to be torn down and a boom
in the river- ht. to throw the channel under
the south «nd of the Great Western draw

A Man Who Talks
Without His Tongue
New York, May 9.—LectureT William
H. Crampton has demonstrated the fal
sity of the belief that the tongue is
necessary for speech.
Mr. Crampton's tongue was removed by
surgeons in the Seney hospital, Brooklyn,
on April 12 last, but yesterday at his
home he talked with a reporter about the
operation and other happenings in his
eventful life.
His articulation was not wholly per
fect, but he spoke clearly and without
much difficulty. Now and then he would
slur a syllable in certain words, but his
enunciation for the most part was as good
as the average. He has a deep, sonorous
voice, and this has practically been un
affected by the operation he passed
through. At the time Mr. Crampton en
tered the Seney hospital, the World told
of the unusual operation.
Mr. Crampton for years has been a lec
turer, and when the doctors told him
that he would be speechless after the
operation he decided to perpetuate his

The operation was an elaborate one. as
his tongue and the left side of his jaw
and neck were affected by a cancerous
growth. All of this had to be cut away,
and lor nearly three hours he was under
the knife of Dr. L. S. Pilcher. Mr. Cramp
ton' thought he had lost the power of
speech until Thursday last. On that day
it was found that the wounds in his
mouth and neck were practically healed,
and after they had been dressed Dr. Pil
cher unthinkingly asked:
"How do you feel, Crampton?"
"All right, doctor," answered the sup
posedly speechless man. much to his own
surprise and that of the doctor.
That same day Mr. Crampton returned
