Professionalism and College Sports It is to be regretted that any coritro- ! \ersy should have developed over the eligibility of a player on the lowa foot- j ball team, but it is difficult to see how the Minnesota management could have conducted the case more delicately or with more consideration for the lowa peo- j pie. The fact that Captain Williams of j the lowa team, had violated a rule of col- ! lege football and had not only played under an assumed name but had played on a professional team, and, presumably, for money, was brought to the attention or the lowa management three weeks ago with the expectation that they would take care of the matter and obtain a ruling from the arbitrator of the "Big Nine." That, certainly, was the proper thing for them to do. A question was raised some time ago with regard to the eligibility of Rogers, of the Minnesota team. The facts were submitted to the arbitrator and he decided at once that the charges were not weli founded and that Rogers was entitled to play with the Min nesota team. The same course was open to the lowa management, and it was ex pected by the Minnesota athletic board that It would be pursued and that Wil liams' status would be officially declared before the game of last Saturday was played. It seems, however, that the lowa man agement failed to adopt this course, de cided for themselves that Williams had not intentionally violated the rule, and, therefore, ought to play. The Minnesota management were not averse to his playing; in fact, they wished him to play; but, knowing the blot upon his record, they could not in justice to themselves allow him to go upon the field without first entering a formal pro test, which could have been submitted to the arbitrator and decided at some other time. This was what Minnesota proposed, but evidently the lowa manage ment were not sure enough of their ground to take any chances, and when it : became known that Minnesota would en ter a formal protest in self-defense and in i order to protect her own team from the taint of professionalism, they decided to withdraw their man —not at the demand of the Minnesota people, but to their own judgment of what was the best thing to do. Now the lowa "rooters" claim that the result would have been different if Wil liams had been allowed to play. Possibly It would; probably It would not. At any rate, the Minnesota management will not ■be criticized for pursuing the course adopted. Williams was clearly ineligible under the rules, and In view of the stren uous efforts which seem to be necessary to protect college sports from the taint of professionalism, it is right that the rules be strictly adhered to. When they are loosely applied or ignored, as would have been the case if Williams had played, college football will lose its unprofes sional character, and, at the same time, its hold upon the public and largely its excuse for existence. The New Haven Evening Register of Oct. 22 contains a full report of Presi dent Northrop's address that morning on "Yale in Its Relation to the Development of the Country," of which liberal extracts were printed in The Journal of the same date. The Register, in speaking of the scenes in the chapel that morning, says: "The distinguished educators, schol ars and statesmen who sat on the plat form in colored gowns, according to the institutions they represented, presented a picturesque sight." President Hadley presided. He introduced Dr. Northrop "as one who is a graduate of Yale and who to-day is the president of an In stitution of over 3,500 students, which in stitution is following closely in the spirit of Yale." The Register says that Dr. Xorthrop kept the audience in a high state of interested expectancy while one bril liant passage followed another; that his remarks were at times exceedingly witty, and that the applause lasted several min utes after he had finished. A Department of Commerce It Is reported from Washington that there is reason to believe that President Roosevelt will recommend in his message to congress the creation of a new execu tive department to be known as the de partment of commerce, to be under the di rection of a cabinet officer. The subject has been discussed for some years and has been before congress, but the proposition lacked efficient leadership, which could push it. It has been greatly aided in the last two or three years by the very great expansion of our commerce at home and abroad. Such a department would naturally relieve the treasury and some other departments of matter which is increasingly onerous to them and prop erly belongs to a department of commerce, which should have control of the subjects of tariffs, customs duties and reciprocity, navigation, commercial statistics, steam boat inspection, immigration. Such a department necessarily would re quire an expert to have charge of com mercial treaties. Under such a depart ment there would, among other advantages received, be the removal of all complaints from foreign customers as to the careless packing of goods exported from this coun ; try to Europe or elsewhere, such as are ; reported by United States Consul Hill at : Amsterdam, for department regulations would correct the trouble, besides giving constant information in convenient form as to the special needs of the various countries with which we trade. Consul Hill, in his report, shows that a perma -1 nent exhibition of American goods at | Amsterdam would greatly increase our commerce with Europe. In Spanish Amer ica we have been at a disadvantage as 1 compared with Europe with respect to trade, on account of the better compliance of European traders with the tastes and business terms of buyers there. A depart ment of commerce would effect for our merchandise trade in general what the , agricultural department has effected for j our meat and provision trade with the out- I side world, through its regulations insur ing purity and compliance with foreign i regulations and tastes. The function of a ' department of commerce would be the pro ; motion of American trade, the retention of | what we have gained in late years, and i j its steady expansion. It could carry out i I the policy of commercial amity with for | eign nations, as outlined by President Mc [ Kinley, and relegate tariff retaliation and : tariff wars to the limbus of the things which have failed, and amplify our trade, i while effecting not a particle of injury to our own real national interests, but min istering to their growth and usefulness. The argument that a department of commerce is not needed, disappears be fore the existing conditions, which de mand separate administration Instead of crowding the treasury department with ■ | the supervision of finance, customs, tariff i law, navigation, steamboat inspection and ■ j other matters which impose too heavy a ■ ; burden upon a single department. The ! | vast increase of our commerce, national • I and international, demands special admin ■ | istration to guard and promote these in f j terests of such vital importance. The ■ | decision with regard to establishing the 1 proposed department must be made with I j reference to national needs. Hard Work Ahead in the Sulu Though the famous treaty which Gen eral Bates negotiated with the sultan and dattos of the Sulus may have kept them at peace at a time when the Ameri can forces in the Philippines were very busy suppressing the Tagalogs, the instru ment is not of a kind that should be per petuated. It recognizes the mild form of slavery that nourishes in the Sulus, and though the chiefs all recognize the sov ereignty of the United States they are, in direct contradiction to that recogni tion, vouchsafed all their rights and dig nities. In consequence of this clause the American representatives are powerless to institute reforms or terminate the ex tortions and cruelties of the sultan and his associated tyrants. As Colonel Sweet, the military governor of the Sulus puts It: In other words the article of agreement guarantees the continuation in undefined and supreme power of a body of barbarians over a territory and a people over whom the United States have sovereignty. The United States have not even reserved the right to investi gate or correct abuses, or to stop crime | against their own subjects. These petty tyrants kept up a succession j of thievery, pillage, raids and wars among j themselves. There is no law in the Sulus i except their capricious wills. The farce of a government which they maintain is vastly inferior to the rule of Aguinaldo and the Tagalogs, and they have none of the aspirations toward better things that are accredited to the latter. The condi tion of the Sulus is what it has been said that of the whole of the Philipipnes would have been if the United States had not intervened. Disorder, crime and slavery are chronic. One thing at a time, of course, but as soon as the archipelago, as a whole, Is once more quiet, the Philippine authori ties will have to take up the Sulus ques tion. The sultan and his dattos will hnve to be removed from authority, the land di vided up among the people and slavery abollj hed. The sultan and dattos, with their savage Mohammedan followers, will probajly resent bitterly any effort to de prive them of their arbitrary power and, as they are a ferocious and warlike race, long the most dreaded pirates and marauders of the east, there may be some sharp fighting. But, certainly, these in ferior barbarians can not be permitted to retain and ebuse privileges that are de nied to the much higher Filipinos, especially when such concessions include the maintenance of an institution so re pugnant as slavery is, to those American ideas that we are introducing into the Philippines. St. Paul has an organization called the Sacred Thirst society. A thirst society would ordinarily be regarded as an or ganization having a thirst to satisfy, but in this instance the full name is the Sacred Thirst Total Abstinence society, and the object of the society appears to be to keep Its thirst sacred from contamina tion by intoxicating beverages. A thirst kept sacred in that way is a good thing. The Passing of Czolgosz The assassin of President McKinley will meet his death in the electrical chair at Auburn, N. V., to-morrow at 7 a. m. We call this "suffering the penalty of his crime" and it is so, so far as human law may go. It is a life for a life, but a very mean and pitiful life for a very noble and useful life. The life of McKinley set against —An Inhuman wretch, TJncapable of pity, void and empty From any dram of mercy, presents a stupendous contrast which makes the infamous crime seem all the more infamous and makes the nation feel that the chalice of wormwood and gall is still pressed to their lips. Blotted out of the world as a foul serpent, as a hate ful spot of corruption under the flag of the free, must Czolgosz be. So far as possible, that is the program of the Auburn prison authorities. Properly they propose the obliteration of the as sassin. No relics from his person will be taken away by his friends. Every ves tige of his clothing will be destroyed and all relic hunters will be baffled. Even scientists, who would take his brain away to examine it in the Interest of science, are denied such action. It is right. The body will disappear and no man outside the group of prison officials will know where it is placed. There will be no oppor tunity for an anarchist funeral, which would be made an occasion for a great anarchist demonstration and defiance of law and order. They will not be able to get the body. Not even the relatives of the assassin will be allowed to take the body. This is eminently proper. Czolgosz should disappear as into a deep oubliette of darkness and the entrance should be sealed up irremediably. The nation will be spared the disgusting spectacle of the triumphant anarchist funeral procession, designed to insult the nation and defy all law and order. The spirit of anarchy must not be fed and fanned into flame by per mitting it to have a red-letter day for its mockery of law and government. The difficulties of the situation in Sa '■ mar have forced the military authorities to adopt the concentration policy of deal l Ing with the inhabitants. Of course, there will now be plenty of talk about imitating Weyler, but in such a country ' as Samar where the enemy is not a known quantity, where an amigo to-day may be I a bolo man to-morrow, the concentration j policy, if not the only, i 3 certainly the : most expeditious method of putting an end jto an intolerable situation. There is no way by which the sheep can be separated from the goats except through a policy which compels those who do not vote for ! war to take up their residence under the j eye of the troocs. The conviction of ex-Secretary Powers of Kentucky, the second time, of having i been accessory to the murder of Goebel, ! upon evidence which does not satisfy a ■ disinterested public, explains how it is ' that Governor Taylor, though asserting his innocence —and until convicted pre- i sumably an innocent man—is unwilling to ; try his chances with Kentucky justice. That Powers is guilty is by no means de termined to the satisfaction of disinter- ; ested outsiders. The verdict against him appears to have been determined more by partizan bias than by the facts before the court. And with two exhibitions of this kind of justice in Kentucky it is no won der that Taylor declines to put himself within its reach. Nor, in view of the pro ceedings in the Powers' case, does the fact that Taylor tries to keep out of the way operate as a confession of guilt on his part Only I remarked to Mr. Johnson, as ' we ate our noonday lunch, $2O t OOO That twenty thousand in the "Chtt" bank was about the proper Jny hunch, And that, when It was laid aside, I'd quit this scene of strife For a cow and seven acres and a truly rural life. But Mr. Johneon did not like the present rural styles; But wanted asphalt pavements laid upon his forest aisles. And an oyster Joint right handy, likewise an old-book store, And a first-class bowling alley upon liia stable floor. So 'tis clear that Mr. Johnson will still re main in town, And attempt within these precincts to shake a fortune down; But as for me, I'm waiting with plans all ready made, To solve the poultry problem and to go against the- spade; And the only thing that hinders from going right out now Is the lack of seven acres and the paltry twenty "thou." I_. . The Oriental Bazoo, pub- UtplomattC n shed at Constantinople : Interchange ™hen i he BUltan is lookinß ° the other way, gives the diplomatic correspondence between the ruler I of the province of Swat and the sultan, that j seems to throw some light on the capture of !

While the correspondence may : I not be authentic, it is given for what it is ! j worth: i' The Akhoond of Swat to his Good Friend the Commander of the Faithful: Illustrious I: —I have read with pleasure of the way in | which the bluff of the infidel is to be called.

Ever thine Akhoond to command, —Swat Al Hamid, Commander of the Faithful, to his Great and Good Friend the Akhoond of Swat: Beloved of Allah—Much, indeed, it pleaseth me to receive thy thoughtful mes sage. It is as you say. The infidel will get the blow, even as thou hintest, in the bone collar button made at Amesbury, Mass., un less the American Board bill is paid. —Hamid. Thl» strain of high oriental persiflage, in THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. dulged In by the eastern rulers at this Junc ture, would seem to argue badly for the suc cess of the efforts being made to obtain the release of an American subject now unlaw fully detained In the mountains of Turkey or Bulgaria. Personally we would like to see a large, coarse warship go into the Darda nelles and scatter around a little metal. The Joyous crunch of bones, followed by the sickening grinding of flesh, filled the air as the hostile lines met; then came a pause as the joyous ambulance, with its load of doctors and undertakers, bucked into the game with their cheerful college yell of "M-O-R-G-U-E!! Hah! Rah! Rah!!" Jeremiah Keller of Bridgeport, Conn., 24 years old, who has been in the habit of smoking 100 cigarettes a day; became vio lently insane, and it required eight poliee meu to hold him down. Yet they say that in time man gets to like the smell of his own cigarette. Patrick Egan says he is going to knife Mr. Low because the latter, at the peace con ference at The Hague, voted to retain the dumdum bullet in warfare. Mr. Low retorts that it is a dum-dum lie. The campaign is warming up gradually. British agents are buying several more shiploads of Missouri and Texas mules for South Africa. No wonder so many Tommy Atkinses are carrying around Victoria medals and assorted contusions.

The new bills last night were: At the Met ropolitan, Richard Golden in "Old Jed Prouty"; at the Bijou, Black Patti's Trouba dours. They will be reviewed in this column to-morrow. Tim Murphy will occupy the boards at the Metropolitan the last half of this week, be ginning Thursday, and present here for the Brst time a new play of Washington life by Paul Wllstach, entitled "A Capitol Comedy." This is said to be one of the most successful American plays of the present decade, and 3tands ac the first drama on the national capital which has received general admira tion since "The Senator" and "A Texas Steer" made a standard which playwrights have found difficulty in approaching. I Thomas Q. Seabrooke will appear at tha I Metropolitan for four nights and matinee-, ' beginning next Sunday evening, and present ; for the first time In this city Sydney Rosen- I feld's comic romantic play, "A Modern Cru soe." The sale of seats for this engage ment will begin Thursday morning. Blanche Walsh, supported by an excellent company of thirty artists, will be seen at the Metropolitan the last half of next week in the dramatization of Paul Leicester Ford's pic turesque and romantic story of American co lonial times, "Janice Meredith." "Sis Hopkins" ie the attraction booked for the Bijou the coming week, and again will be seen that delightful character actress Miss Rose Melville in the title role, portraying the simple country girl of central Indiana, whose eyes are opened to the double dealing of the world In a moat dramatic manner. For three seasons "Ste Hopkins" has been one of the most successful of the rural type of plays. The story of "Sis Hopkins" la one of sweet simplicity and gentle humor. MINNESOTA POLITICS Opposition to a third term for Dar F. Reese is beginning to develop and pick out candi dates. The genial clerk of the suprefne court is finishing his second four-year term, and all precedent in recent years ie against more than eight years in office. Reese as a repre sentative of the St. Paul triumvirate is also coming in for some hard knocks, and \will find as hard a flght right in St. Paul as any where. He has not signified his intentions, I but the general impression is that he will seek a. second renomination. The feeling among politicians who visit the twin cities is that "Reese has had enough." The place pays better than any other elective office in the state, and its emoluments are generally estimated at close to $12,000 a year, j Reese le a good campaigner, and is the popu- | lar member of the St. Paul coterie of bosses, | but he has apparently about run the limit of his welcome. The second district will probably present a candidate. Senator Daniel Shell of Worthlng tori is thought to have designs on the nomina tion, and is the most frequently mentioned, : but there is talk of Senator H. J. Miller of Luverne. Both have a state-wide acquaint ance and reputation, and with the second dis trict solidly behind either one Reese would hare an interesting flght Senator J. D. Jones of Long Prairie, who held down the place in years long gone by, is receiving men tion. Overtures have been made to Hennepin ! county from the country. Local politicians have been told that If Minneapolis will unite on a good candidate for the place, he will be able to land the nomination. The suggestion ] has met with little favor. While the office of clerk of the supreme court is a good one for the man who holds It, it carries with it very little patronage. There are only three em ployee in the office. It is a good office to scramble for, but when Hennepin as a county makes a fight for an office, it will be for something more than a fat place for one man. South Minneapolis republicans are working up a boom for Henry J. GJertsen for state senator from the forty-second district Should Gustav Theden, the former senator, go after the nomination it would make a pretty flght. Senator Sto:kwell is reported t« have said that he will not be a candidate again unless Theden is to run against him. —C. B. C. Plea for the Visiting; Nurses. To the Editor of The Journal: I read a recent letter in your paper, -where a poor woman donated 25 cents for one of the most worthy charities in your city, tht> Visiting Nurses' Association, which has lost the support of the 400 churches in your city. I am not a church member myself, but I be ileve In them and attend when I can. I was never in your city, and have only been in your state six weeks. I expect to leave it this week. But I will send you 50 cents to help the most worthy association on earth. How can a person who is able refuse to help such a cause after he has seen and read of so much suffering in our great cities. Here is a case that I saw in one of the large cities of the east a few years ago: A young woman who had seen better days, a good woman, with a little bright-eyed baby girl, was found dead In her bed. Some one passing heard the cry of a baby and found that the mother had been dead several hours. What killed her? Starvation, in a city of plenty. Hani times came, husband started away looking for work. She was taken sick, was too proud to beg, too honest to steal. She was expect ing help and praying for help, but it came too late. Thousands were ready to help when too late. I am poor and, like a great many of your readers, have a mother, a sister and daughter, and how we would feel if one of them fchould suffer and die as this dear wom an did. An association like the one you have *ould help and prevent much of this suffer ing. Although she is a stranger to me, I pray that God will give Miss Edith Lings a long life, with health and happiness; also, that He will soften the hearts of come church members. —A Traveling Man. Moorhead, Minm. WITH MILITARY HONORS The Body of Capt. Muhlou Black In l.uiil Away. Captain Mahlon D. Black, a member of the famous First Minnesota regiment, was burled yesterday afternoon, with due mili tary honors in the little cemetery at Richfield, the body being laid to rest in the family plot, beside the captain's brother. After the coffin had been low ered into the grave a firing squad made up of members of Camp 4, Sons of Vet erans, under command of Captain Jones, fired the customary salute. The services throughout were military In character and were conducted by George N. Morgan Post, G. A. R., of which the dead man had been a member. Dev. Dr. J. E. Bushnell, pastor of Westminster Presbyterian church, officiated and preached the funeral sermon. Music was provided by the Bryant Post quartet. The services were held at the Black residence, 812 Fourth avenue S, and were largely attended. The rooms were pro fusely decorated with flowers, and the cas ket was entirely concealed beneath the floral tributes. At the head and foot of the bier stood two veterans of Morgan Post, at parade rest. The pall bearers were, members of the First Minnesota, men who had fought with Captain Black throughout the war. They were Major C. B. Heffelfinger, Judge Wm. Lochren, Myron Shepherd, William May, F. McCusick, John W. Pride, J. B. Che ney and John Brown. A HANDSOME TOKEN Railroad Associates Present D. A. Macurdy a Gold Headed Cane. D. A. Macurdy, who leaves this even- Ing to make his home with relatives in Massachusetts, was pleasantly surprised Saturday evening at the residence of Thomas Donald, chef clerk of the Mil waukee freight office, by the employees of the freight department, who presented him with a gold-headed cane. T. D. Bell made the presentation, which was a com plete surprise to Mr. Macurdy. The lat ter has been in the employ of the Mil waukee road for twenty-three years, and | he has been a resident of Minneapolis since 1878. He received his commission as captain in the war of the rebellion and is a prominent member of the G. A. R., Masonic and Odd Fellow organizations. A musical program was given by Mrs. Don ald and her mother, Mrs. Driscoll, and ] Master Raymond and little Miss Anna Donald gave several fancy dances. STATUS OF DRUGGISTS They Must Pay Tax for Selling; Liquor on Prescription. Druggists who sell liquors on a physi cian's prescription and for medical use only, subject themselves to the special government tax, according to Commis sioner Yerkes of the revenue department. A druggist may keep spirits and wines to combine with medicines not used as bev erages, and sell such combinations with out liability. Other compounds which contain spirits and do not require payment of .tax are toilet articles, ether and alcohol for pho tcgraphy, benzine and alcohol for clean ing, alcohol and shellac for painters, etc. Druggists who sell malt extracts for med icine are not liable, but any one who sells compounds as beverages knowingly in volves himself in liability to criminal prosecution under the internal revenue laws. CHAMBER CONVENIENCES Some Handy Devices to Save Time of Traders. A feature of the board room at the new chamber of commerce will be the tele phone system. The large switchboard will contain small incandescent lights, which when flashed will indicate the call of the member wanted. Each telephone com pany will have a switchboard in the build ing to accommodate the offices. The ventilation system will be run by electricity. The elevators will be run at 750 pounds pressure, obtained by electric pumps. The five elevators will be placed in a semi-circle, so that the incomer will command a view of all of them. Water for toilet purposes will be taken from an artesian well, the water for the boilers will come from the city mains. GOSPEL CRAFT IS WAITING Passengers This Season Mast Wear Regrnlatlon Uniforms. The steamer Megiddo, the gospel craft of the Christian Brethren which was launched last "Wednesday at Lyons, lowa, will not be brought to Minneapolis for the start on a missionary tour, as intended. A band of sixty is now at Lyons waiting for the boat to leave. Rev. L. T. Nichols, with the Minneapolis members of the mis sionary band, will leave in about three weeks to take possession of the steamer. i Those who make the trip on the south ern waters of the Mississippi this winter, beginning at St. Louis, will wear uni forms. The •women will have gray dresses with cap and coat, and the men cap, coat and trousers of uniform material. A star and crescent will be embroidered on both sides of the coat. POOR MOTHER AND SON Pitiful Case Disclosed by Work of Humane Society. A sad state of affairs has been disclosed in the home of Mrs. Sarah Young, 705 Jewett place. The woman is bed ridden and dying and her only son, Harry Young, is apparently insane. When Dr. C. J. Bevan called at the place last Saturday at the request of the humane society, the son objected and drew a butcher knife. His conduct was reported to the authori ties and the young man was locked up. ■Mrs. Young was found in the most filthy surroundings. Harry was hurt in a street car accident last summer. His mother has 'been cared for by the neighbors until he made them afraid to go near the house. A Pleasant Reminder. V Cincinnati Commercial Tribune.

"When it Is all over I -will have perhaps $500 and the furniture." "Dear me," thought Mrs. Wilson, "and every one thought Mr. Norris was such a fine business man." But she did not express the thought She knew the girl's loyalty to her dead father. "Patty," she finally explained In triumph, "there are the Van Allen girls going abroad. Their father Is a widower. He wants a com panion for them. You know the continent like a guide book, and you'd be useful— they're new to this sort of thing, you know." Patricia Norris drew herself up very straight. "Connie, don't suggest impossible things! I positively refuse to take a position that sa vors of charity. I'm going straight into the business world and work—really work." Mrs. Wilson affected a cheerful acquiescence which she did not feel. "I'm going home, now, my dear, and think this over. You'll hear from me to-morrow. And, of course, you'll succeed, -whatever you undertake." Mrs. Wilson had been Patty's governess in the days when cuch. a thing as financial un certainty seemed far removed from the Norris mansion. Now she was manuscript reader for a big publishing concern. When she reached her dimly lighted bedroom, third, story back, in a noisy boarding-house, she drew forth a small bank book and studied it carefully. As a result of long.reflection she dispatched the following note to Patty: "My Dear Girl—Before we do anything else, "we must find a home. I am sick unto death of boarding. Shall we have a little flat to j gether, a cunning apartment, with what you I want of your dear old things as furnishings? i Then we'll find you a position. But first a ■ home—for your sake and mine. Save me from the fate of a hall bedroom, my dear. It is the chahce I have dreamed of for years." Three weeks later Mrs. Wilson caught Patty frowning at her across a dinner table that was homelike and dainty. "Connie, there's absolutely nothing left for me to do. The tins are hung straight in the kitchen and I've tried the bricy-bracy in every conceivable position. I'm not to be put off any longer. I want a job." There was mirth in the tone, but it rang false. "Job" from the lips of. Patricia Nor ris! Nevertheless that came evening they faced the situation together. Mrs. Wilson had seen this coming and was prepared. "There is absolutely nothing open in our offices as I had hoped, Patty, and the only schools where I would have influence are sup- I plied with teachers that never marry or die." ! She surveyed the girl through a veil of un | shed tears. "You're a regular Gibson figure, I dear, and such lovely fluffy hair " She broke off disconnectedly. Patty laughed. ."Connie, do stick to the text! Shall I go forth as an artist's model?" Mrs. Wilson clasped her hands tightly. "Not exactly that, but I heard of something to-day, Patty, that you could do —so well." "Name It," responded Patty, but with an odd sinking sensation in her heart. "At Schennerhorn's they want—a—a model to show off their imported suits, and you're the very—oh, Patty, don't look at me like that—l've tried so hard to get something bet i ter." i In a second the girl's soft arms were round her neck. "Connie, behave yourself! Of course I shall take it, and be properly grateful. How much?" "Only $12.50 a week, but you wouldn't have gotten that much, only I told the head of the department what a—a —beauty you were." I "Flatterer!" anewered Patty, with a laugh : that sounded more like a sob. I So did Patricia Norris make her entry into | tho business world. It was not hard work, | and she never wearied of handling the beau | tiful wraps and frocks. Her statuesque beau ty set them off to perfection, and the head of the department approved of her because she ""never got gay," nor wasted the time of other employee by chatting with them as her predecessor had done. In fact, she held her j self aloof from the other girls in the shop. It was an odd, unreasoning pride that they could not understand. If the girls who thought her proud had known how she envied them, they might have felt differently. They worked with their hands, and she —juet posed. Daily New York Letter A Woman in the K. S.

This cherished right is now denied her by Mr. Stokes' family, she alleges. The woman who complains of the conduct of Mr. Stokes' relatives Is handsome and of distinguished appearance. Her elegant cos tumes and her carriages have attracted mush admiration in Central park, where she drives daily. The Woman's Story. Concerning her acquaintance with Mr. Stokes and her subsequent marriage to him she spoke in d»tail at her home in W Sev enty-ninth street. "My maiden name," said she, "was Kosa rrond Langdon Barclay. I first mat Mr. Stokes when I was a little girl. Ho anJ ir.y father, Charles Barclay, of Eng'and, were frieude. I was educated at a school at Fmmington, Conn. Twelve years <»go I again met Mr. Stokes. He was kind to m 7 father and he v.aa an old frieud of the family. "We vtre mr.rried cv Aug.

The place where we were married Is on the St. Lawrence river. I do not now remember the name of the clergyman. That and the names of the wit nesses appear on the records, which are now in a safety deposit vault "Mr. Stokes was at that time not In good health. He wished to provide for me, and especially to so arrange matters that should he become seriously 111 I should, have the right to visit him. "We took up our residence In this house about one year ago. Mr. Stokes did not wish to have our marriage made public, as he had certain business affairs which he wished to have settled up before the announcement was made. He had occupied bachelor apart ments before thai. time. I had lived with my family. He made his home in this house, where my mother and brother also reside. "Mr. Stokes became very ill about two months ago and grew steadily worse. He had the best of medical care and attention. His sister, Mrs. Mary McNutt, and her husband, Howard McNutt, came here frequently to see him. Mr. McNutt Insisted several times that Mr. Stokes, as ill as he was, should sit up and sign notes and papers. I protested against such a proceeding, for the doctor had given orders that my husband should net talk business with anyone. "Mr. McNutt and I had several disputes at out the matter, but otherwise our relations *tre friendly. Mrs. McNutt came here often >ATTY*S BUSINESS EXPERIENCE hy "StJLvtKi. Hiutiplu'tvj. It was not brain that earned her salary, but a mere bauble of physical perfection. And she resented most of all the quiet, searching glances of a young fellow who seemed to be in the cashier's department. Once when she went to draw her salary, ha stood near the window and handed forth the envelop without even asking her name. She flushed slightly, and after that his compel ling glance called forth a stiff little bow when they came face to face. One noon, when she was threading ln-r way through a stream of cable care and drays, she was almost run down, and the gray-eyed young man from the cashier's de partment reached her before the policeman. Two nights later, when she and Mrs. Wil son indulged in the extravagance of tickets for a fashionable playhouse, they emerged upon a sudden rain storm. 'O!" wailed Mrs. Wilson, "my new bon net!" Just then some one arrayed in a long coat and balancing a comforting umbrella reached their side. It was the young man from Schermerhorn's. "Come back into the lobby. Miss Norrls, while I call a handsom for you." "A hansom, Patty! He said a hansom," exclaimed Mra. Wilson, almost tearfully. "What will it cost?" "I don't know," snapped Patty, nervously, "not as much as a new bonnet." ' A few moments later he escorted them to the waiting hansom, raised his hat gravely, looked just once Into Patty's brown eyes, and away they whirled la the blackness of the night. At their apartment, Mrs. Wilson covering her beloved confection of chiffon and roses with a handkerchief, rushed into the ball, leaving Patty to settle the bill. The latter was strangely silent until they were brushing ■their hair, when ehe suddenly burst forth in wrath: "It is bad enough, Connie, to rail in publia over a ruined hat, but to bewail the price of a hansom is unforgivable." "Why—why—" gasped Mrs. "Wilson. "He paid the hackma.n, that's all," groaned Patty, and threw herself face downward la her pillows, murmuring: "He needn't thinii that just because he saved my life, he can pay my hack fare." And yet, inconsistently, she took a strange pleasure in recalling the look in his dark gray eyes when he leaned forward. A month later Mrs. Wilson came home ra diant. "There's an opening, Patty, dear, in our office, and you must take it quick. There ar« dozens of applications, but I have the prom ise!" And the next day Patty handed in her res ignation to Schermerhorn & Co., to take ef- feet on Saturday. With the last day cams word that Mr. Frawley would like to see Miss Norrls before she left For once she relaxed the rule and asked one of the girls who Mr. Frawley was. "0, he's the company," responded the girl carelessly. After drawing her last pay envelop, Patty crossed to the main office and was ushered into a smaller room. The übiquitous young man of the gray eyes rose to receive her. "Mr. Frawley has sent for me—" she be gan, with just the suggestion of a flush in her cheeks. "I am Mr. Prawley," replied he, and the gray eyes danced at her confusioil. "I want ed to tell you, MiS9 Norris, that, while wa regret to lose you valuable services, we are glad to know you are securing a positiou better suited to—er—your tastes and abilities. 1 trust you will not forget—us?" The gray eyes were looking most pleadingly into here. The flush crept closer and closer to the soft brown hair. "I am afraid I've been very rude, some times, Mr. Frawley," she murmured in a low voice. "But you know it was all so new to me, and I felt —oh, 1 can't tell you Just hovr 1 did feel!" "I think I understand. Miss Xorria. I—l hope I shall see you again. May I—" "We live at the Jerome apartments, Mra. Wilson and I—aud we are always home Tues day evenlnge." The gray eyes thanked her eloquently and she walked rapidly from the office. That night ot the dinner table, Mrs. Wil son ranfbled on happily: "I really don't think it has hurt you, dear. You had to gain business experience somehow—and—" "No," replied Patty, absently. "It has done no harm," but she was thinking not of tha experience, but of the glad light in the gray eyes when she had told him he might call. to visit her brother. My house was always open to her and to her husband. Their con* duct under the circumstances is the niors it* markable. Went Away in Automobile. "Mr. and Mrs. MeNutt were here on Oct. 8, and had a talk -with Mr. Stokes, although he was very feeble. They returnsd on thn following day. Dr. John S. Billings, Jr., was also here. The physician said his patten t was doing bo well that he might Uke a drive. I ordered the automobile to be brought, and James Walker, a trained nurse, went with my husband. "Mr. Stokes turned to me and said he waa 100 weak to go uut. I am no'.Qiug of a schemer, and I did not then understand what was going on. I advised Mr. Stokes to go, by all means, telling him the air would flu him good. In case he did not feel equal to taking a long ride, I suggested that ho re i\rn In a few minutes. He ask ad ius if I did not wish to go with him, and I replied that there would hardly be room for another person in the automobile. "Ttat was the last I saw of him. H« wa« taken to the home of his Bister and carried up the steps of the house in St. Nicholas ave nue. He did not wish to remain there. ( hear that the following morning, when bo realized where he wag, -he said he wishol to come back here, but of course he could not do so without assistance. "I have slnca that time made repeated ef forts to see my husband. Mr. McNutt sayt he will not permit me to see Mr. Stokes un til I demonstrate to him that I have tha right to visit him. Mr. McNutt Is of a re ligious turn of mind. I told him that he had no right to question me, and that at tha proper time. If such a proceeding were neces* Kary, I would prove my marriage to Mr, Stokes, but I would not make any cxplaaa* Uons to htm." Here's a Good Word tot Crolcer. When Richard Croker left the Hoffman) House the other day to go to Tammany Hall a citizen stepped up, and with extended hand said: "How do you do, Mr. Croker/' and then, as tho chieftain took his hand and looked quizzically at him, tho stranger went on: "You don't know me. I am a son of Leon. ard W. Jerome." "Oh, yea, I know you," was the response, "You look Ilk* your father." "I'm a brother of the Judge," came the laughing rejoinder. "Yes, I know that, too," said Crokcr, laughing. "Well, how are you?" "I'm very well, thank you. We are out against you, you know, and hope to win." "Yes, that's so, but you've got your hand* full," and with another laugh the Tammany chief moved on. After surveying the disappearing figure a second, Colonel Lowell H. Jerome turned to a little croup of newspaper men, who had seen the good natured encounter, and said: "There goes one of the finest men in New York city. He has taken care of hundreds of persons and dons them favors. X ever I wanted a real favor done me I don't know of any one I would rather go to than Richard Croker. Years ago my father did him a favor, and Croker never forgot It. When my brother came out of college Mr. Croker had him appointed an assistant dlstrlot attorney under Colonel John R. Fsllowes. It shows what kind of a man he is. He never forgets a friend. ■ "But yre are political enemies now, sod that's another question. Personally^ tiiougl^ I have great regard tec bUm'< "Is**"* I'
