Oppose Bill in Congress Requiring
Licences for Their Craft.
(By Associated Press.)
WASH I NO TON. April 24. Own?
ers of motor 'boats on Long Island
Sound are opposed to the bill passed
;by the Senate and favorably report?
ed by ihe House Committee on Mer?
chant Marine, requiring a licensp for
motor heals carrying passengers for
hire anil placing them under the sup?
ervision of the government.
Congressman Cocks, who repre?
sents a Long Island district, has re?
ceived communications relative to
rhe 'bill and will probably oppose it
wliPn a vote is taken in the House.
The bill specifically provides that
launches regularly engaged in the
fishing business as an occupation
are not subject to the law requiring
a license, hu! liiere is some doubt
as to whether this relieves the large
number of motor boats used in the
oyster trade on Long Island Sound.
The amendment in thp bill ex?
empting fishing boats was made at
the instance of Representative Clark,
of Florida, who said that to require
licenses from 'the owners of small
fishing boats would iniposp a hard?
ship ami was unnecessary because
Hie masters of these crafts are in?
variably good sailors and endanger
no lives.
The protest made by Long Island
motor 'boat owners, will have great
weight, as more napiha launches and
electrical boats are used in those
waters than in any harbor in the
j l'n I led States.
! The objection made by those
whom the law will affect is that it
is inconvenienr and unneccessary.
There are a larg-e number of boats
on (he Sound which carry passengers
for hire only during a short period
and are then convened into pi lea s
ure craft. The owners of these
boats object to being placed under
the supervision of the government.

ft Is curious thai no picture gallery
ins ever been milde of the beautiful
iroineu who have Influenced history.
From the dtiys of ihe great Egyptian
queeu uisn.v a dull page of history has
been lighted up by aoine fair face Hint
has brnugbl a Utile humnu interest Into
the dry and cold calculations of. king*
and politicians.
Antony was not the last politician
whose course was Intlueueed by beau?
ty. Think of the beautiful Louisa of
Prussia Jesting with Napoleon for a
klugdoin. "1 knew that 1 was td see
the most beautiful queeu In existence,"
said Napoleon to Talleyrand utter a
banquet given In her honor, ''but I
have found the most beautiful queeu
aud nt the same time the must inter?
esting woman in the world." And Lou?
isa bud wou ironi htm the restoration
of Silesia.
II Is said, indeed, that she laughingly
ottered him a rose In exchange tor the
fortress of .Magdeburg, but Nappleou
wits oue of the iron men of the world.
He kept the dower?and Magdeburg.
A book of "Beautiful Women," by
ilulletl Hyatt, has pictures of some of
the most beuutlful women that have
ever lived, und Mrs. Steuart Erskiue
baa gathered their romantic stories.
One comes upon a picture of Klizu
Fnrrou. the actress, who began life by
playing childish parts in a strolling
company and advanced to fame in Lou
don as Miss Hnrdcastle In "She stoops
to Conquer." She became a favorite In
society and married the twelfth Lord
Derby, when site "lived happily ever
after," tit king her place at court and
In society. So barriers are Insurmount?
able lo the career of beauty.
Here Is the picture of -Madame," the
beuutlful Henrietta Stuart, youngest
daughter of Charles L, who, married
the Duke of Orleans. The features
seem hard and the expression some?
what cold and stalely. She would ap?
pear a woman more uf brain than ten?
derness, lu reality stie had 11 spurkllng
wit. with that wonderful gift of per?
sonal magnetism -"AII men loved aud
most women adored her." wrote a gal?
lant frenchman lu bis memoirs.
Life lu the Freueb court was a con?
tinual round of pleasure, uud the days
were passed lu bnllets aud theatricals,
lu the morning madaute would drive
out wirb her ladles, to be escorted on
their return by King Louis XIV. und
bis court on borsebuek. After supper
they would nil drive out, accompanied
by l.ulli's violins, to watch the moon?
light rui the water und talk the moon?
shine uf lovers.
Five years later mudame was the
king's trusty udrlser and the only me?
dium of com inimical Ion between him
nnd her brother, Charles II. It was In
the spring of IH70 that she brought
about that secret treaty of Dover that
made Charles n Roman Catholic und
plunged England into wnr with Hoi
That was the summit of mndame's
power. The sequel w/aa ghastly nnd
dramatic. A few weeks later she was
at St. Cloud in the flush of high spirits
at her success. A glusB of Iced chicory
water was brought at her request, uud
she drank It off quickly. Five miqutes
liner maddme was uo more. All the
power of her fu sei urn Ion and beauty
was ended by u secret poison.
AS the pages are turned the portrait
] of a lady in tt brocuded dress appears,
a face with n very deep forehead und
expressionless lips. This is the famous
Mine, de Pompadour. Her birth was
very humble indeed, but she came in
the way of Louts XV., who gave her
unlimited Influence till she became a
recognized power in Europe. For
many years she conducted the fprelgn
policy of France, interviewing omlias
sadors aud treating with kings. Re?
buffed by Frederick the Great, this
amazing woman made overtures to
Maria Theresa of Austria to divide his
kingdom between them, and, sitting in
her summer bouse, she gayly arranged
with a couple of diplomats tbe reparti?
tion of Europe.
Moreover, but for the freedom ehe
gave to her persona I likes nnd dislikes,
it is not Improbable that she would
bi'.ve nceompllsbed some of the less
wild of her schemes. Her dramatic
end lias often been told. In the midst
of a discussion on affairs of state, as
she sat rouged and powdered lu her
chair, the cure who was with her rose
to go. She detained him. "One mo?
ment, M. le Cure," she said, "we will
lake our departure together." And a
few minutes later tiie beautiful diplo
mntist was dead.
The portrait of the unlucky Marie
Antoinette, frank, queenly, superb, or
whom jjajrke rapturously wrote. "Olit?
tering like llie morning nnr. mr yf n're
, and splendor and Joy," Is here too. Re?
call her life at the Petit Trianon, that
miniature palace with the Cotiuthiau
pillars, where she wandered about un?
attended aud no one rose At her ap?
proach. It Is always grimly pathetic
thai the one French queeu who a little
ruin lied tbe part that we have been
taught to expect from a queeu should
have been sacrificed to the mad rage
of the revolution.
Angelica Knuffman was tbe child of
a Tyrolese peasant, who made her way
by the force of her artistic gifts us
well as her beauty. She was one of tbe
original members of the Royal acad?
emy. Like many a beautiful woman
.who never becomes famous, she was
married secretly to an adventurer who
passed himself off as Count Frederick
de Horn. Too late she discovered that
he had been a footman to that persou
and no more, and for some ten years
abe was blackmailed by this adven
tUTer.?Waahliurton Post.
[asmoa to All Specie* and Essential
10 Their Existence,
A fish just taken from the water, If
handled, is found to be slippery und
conted with slime. All ilshes, the
meanest and the noblest, kllliOsb and
shark, shad, salmon and trout, wear
lids slime. They could not exist wlih
out It.
Tbe slime Is secreted usually In a
continuous series of duets, wiili numer?
ous openings arranged in a line extend
lug along the side of (be il.-b. ?ome
tlsbes have oue Hue oil a slue, some
have live or six. The lilies may he
plainly visible, and in some e.isi^a up
pear to tie n marking on the llsh. More
often they are not observable at all.
Some tlsbes store this secretion in pores
distributed over the whole surface of
the body, the larger number, however,
in pores In lateral lines. There are
also pores tor I lie secretion of mucus,
or slime, in I he lisb's heml.
Tlie slime is exuded through the di?
visions between I he scales lo I In* outer
pan of tlie body, over which it spreads,
forming a sort of outer skin or cover?
ing, transparent ami having elasticity
ami iehneity ami often considerable
body. It Would not tie remarkable for
a fair sized Ash, say a risb of two
pounds weight, to luive a coaling of
slime n (liirty-seeoml of an Inch In
thickness, l-'isbes vary greatly hi tbe
it mount of slime which they secrete.
Tbe eel will suggest Itself as one tlmr

The tlsh's slimy coating reduces Its
friction when in motion anil helps to
increase Its speed. It aids lu protect
: I lie scales from Injury, lining of
sullieieut substance to serve In some
measure as a cushion. The slimy
covering makes the fish bard to hold
ami s i enables it |lie more readily to
escape from lbs enemies. Ii Is some
times repugnant 10 other tlsbes, which
are repelled by Us odor. II Is the slime
from the fishes lui lid leid that makes tbe
nuclei "suiell fishy," as the expression
A most important function of the
fish's slimy coating Is 10 protect It
from the at tacks of fungus, u form of
plant life found in all witters, suit and
fresh, Including the purest. Tbe slime
covers ibe entire exterior surface of
the fish, including the tins. Fungus
does not attach to tiie slime, but If the
fish Were in lie Injured so that there
was upon it some hpot uncovered by
lie slime upon rhat spot some minute
fragment of fungus, so small as to be
scarcely mure than visible, would be
likely 10 lodge. Once lodged the fun?
gus Is reproduced very fust.
Fish sometimes recover from at?
tacks of fungus, bin inuclt more often
ibey do nm. The fungus displaces the
skin. Inflammation is set up, aud the
place attacked becomes practically u

and extend over the gills and finally

A cat characteristic little recognized
even by lovers of the sinuous pets is
Intense love of perfume. The keenness
of scent so useful lo pussykins in her
bunting uvocation makes her quick to
detect and recognize the fragrance of
natural flowers and toilet preparations,
and. unlike the dog. which will detect i
lu a moment ihe scent affected by mas?
ter or mistress without evincing any
pleasure save that of associated Ideas,
the cat really enjoys tlie sweet Itself.
Sensitiveness to sweet odors varies In
Individual felines, und some animals
show n decided preference for violet
fragrance over that of rose powder, for
example; but, generally speaking, tbe
pedigreed Agripplnas or those having a
strain at Persian or Angora nre most
keenly alive to odors of Araby.?New

A Will In Three Words.
In the probate division of tlie London I
county court Sir Gorell Barnes was
asked to admit to probate tbe will of
Frederick Thorn of Amesbury avenue,
Streatham, who died leaving property|
valued at S4.00O. A day or so before
lie died, counsel stated, Mr. Thorn bad
paralytic stroke. He asked for a
piece of paper, and they gave an en?
velope to him. He wrote on the hack
of it, In Ihe presence of bis wife and
two of bis children, "All to mother. F.
T." This was witnessed by Arthur
Thorn and Percy Tboru. The will was]
handed up to his lordship, who remark?
ed thai 11 was probably the shortest |
oue on record. It was duly executed
and witnessed and he therefore pro?
nounced for it.
