What, care the .astry cooks for the dyspepsia of tbe vorld? Do they consider the stonv :cbs of those who will consume either :be teugh or greasy paste for which a auce or "Piling" Is the cxcurc? Not a >it. So thinks Misn Bertha BuOln. .vbo Is responsible for an Interesting I txpaftnient which is going ou with the | unch counter problem in tbe Wo? men's college of Brown university. She Is trying to give the girls good, wholesome fare, not baker's cake, ba? ler's pic, that machine made pic tum? id out by the thousands, or other In? digestible dainties, for girls will cat] such strange things. She says: "Tbcy will find that rice pudding Is not so I bad to take, for thnt. concoction need not bo the watery, uncooked mess of | tho old time boarding school, but truly palatable dish." Miss Buf?u, '05, | .ind Miss Eaton, her collengue. an un? dergraduate, nay they aren't sure how the experiment wns started, but It Is going along Bwlmnilngly. "Tbe menu of the old lunch counter consisted," says Miss Buflln, "of nonp which was lulu and watery and not very warm, pastry and pink, brown and white ice ] cream. The fickle, whimsical appetite of girls who spend most of their time indoors is not ensy to please. Their tastes seem to run to spiced meats and chopped meats rather than to plain, good solid roast beef or mutton. Rath? er than milk they drink coffee In spite of these difficulties, however, tbe two now managers have succeeded in materially changing the old menu nnd making it attractive. What is served Is possibly plainer, but it Is more sub? stantial and certainly more digestible." Yellow stains on the margins of en? gravings may be removed by spong? ing carefully with a solution of hy droclilorido of sods. New York State Republican Of ganizatlon Given Over to Governor _ I WOULD PUSH DDEIL OFF WAGON Taft Loses In Bay 8tate?Adminis? tration Forces Learn Proposition toj Send Uninstructed Delegation from Massachusetts Grows in Favor. WASHINGTON. 1). C? Pel|. 5-? Slate Chairman Timothy 1? Woodruff. I of Um New York stifte Republican Committee, formally turned the state, organization over to the support of Governor Hughes' presidential boom tonight at the dinner or the Richmond County Republican Committee. It Is said to Ho the present purpose <>r those v,ho control the Republican organization to place It in the hands ol Governor Hughes' and then leave the ^election of those who will he most closely identified with the man? agement of his presidential boom to the governor himself. They will not seek to force their active support up? on him. The motive for placing the matter before Governor Hughes in this un? encumbered form is to "smoke out" Mr. Ode)!, who Is charged with hav? ing asinuned unwarranted authority In connection with the movement for Governor Hugh) a with ulterior pur? poses. The Woodruff men are con? vinced that the object which Gover? nor Odell seeks is a factional fight between the organization and sup? porters of Governor Hlights, out of which he sees a possibility of regain? ing control of the state organization, nnd they hope to create a situation which will drive Governor Odell to the woods and clarify the i>olltlca) atmosphere, which has become somo what clouded recently. Bay State Outlook Clears. A new factor in the presidential situation today is the apparent with? drawal of the administration forcer which have been engaged In an at? tempt to elect Taft delegates In Mas? sachusetts. This state has been for weeks the fighting ground in New Eugland. Senator lx>dge. as the sup? porter of the administration, has urg? ed Secretary Taft a? a presidential candidate, while Scnntor Crane ha' quietly argued that, it would be morr filling for the state'to rollow the New England precedent or sending unin? structed delegations. This policy of uninstructed delegations came to br the Ilm on which anti-Taft Senate r and others opposed to the secretary of war worked. Representative Gardner, son-lh-law of Senator ix>dg?. went to Massachu? setts ten days ago and came back tr report that, the people whom he saw showed some hesitancy about com mittlen themselves. It was showr that the Tort managers wert- no' meeting with the success anticipated Today comes tho announcement t'unt the fight lias been declared off Former Representative "Sam" Pow? ers, who was recently commissioner' as Taft manager for Massachusetts with Jurisdiction extending through New England, has been instructed tr cease Iiis activity against an unin? structed delegation, and it is Haiti that Senator Crane has won. There la a' least ground for suspicion that then will U? few delegates rrom Massachu? setts for Mr. Taft. The change In the Massachusetts situation has put new heart into thos who are lighting the administration lr other atatcs of New England, and Mr Taft's opponents aro confident tonlgh that he will not again Inke tin an ac? tive light in that locality. The state of Maine represents a situation no unlike that in Massachuseets. Reua tor Hale is placed In the antl-Taf column, while Senator Fry? is nn oper advocate ot the secretary of war.

FILIPINOS FOR TAFT. Their Delegation Will Come With Such Instructions. \\>\8HINGTON. TJ. C, Fob. 6 ? The Philippine Islands have cast their vote for Secretary of War Taft, for? mer governor general of the islands as their candidate for the presidene; of the Unl 'ed States. The convention held at Manlln utiinimously adopted strong ievolu? tions favoring the candidacy of the secretary of war and will send a del cgatlon to the convention Instructee" to vote for Taft, first, last and al) '.he time. The result of the convention's wort was made known in a cablegram re? ceived by Rrlgadlcr General Clarence R. F.dwaids, chief of tho Insular bu? reau. US AND OL j Performers are engaged for circus work pretty much the sauie an are the other people. Sohle apply per- | tonally or by letter; others are ob- ( talned through advertlsitiK in London Berlin, Paris and other foreign eitles, writes Tody Hamilton. In the Wnsh I Ington Star. Another method or oh- ' mining people and attractions is' i through foreign theatrical agents. Th 10 agents are found In the prill- I .clpal eitles throughout the world [Their llnauelal Interests Induce tin in to keep posted In all public amuse-! iiunts. studying interesting ami uov-j el features of entertulnincin and keep-] log en rapport with tho latest stars of tho stage and ring. They are the thousand eyed of the big show. When one of these agents discov? ers a new act by an Individual or troupe, he Will try to secure engage? ment for the performers on the basis of 5 per cent, on the imhiry receive.I. wh'ch royalty continues as long as the engagement last?. It la part bl tile business' of tho foreign agent, therefore to keep In touch with all the big shows throughout the world, and It Is through such agencies that the place of a particular rider or ath? lete can be filled at short notice. The first official step between cir? cus maniiger and performer Is the; signing of an iron-clad contract ThlB contract covers about forty rules which, If strictly adhored to, would qualify the signer for n proscenium lox In gk.vy. The subscriber has only the personal freedom left to en? able him or her to perform the act contracted for, and to eat and sleep between tinier. All .clso Is' forbidden ?>r proylded for In the rules mention? ed. Eyon the kind of clothing wem between performances Is specified: and to Insure the uiforeenient of UiIb rulo the su mof 25 cents per week Is assnised against each und every per? former and paid to the txirler of the -ar for this service. The fines for violation of tho rules vary from $1 to $25. All grades of performers must sub icrlbe to the some rules. There I? u clause in tho contract generally which permits cither of tho parties to it to terminate tho aanio upon two weoka' ??"iHce. Thus, whon a particularly high-priced act Is not required beyond ?i certain time, the two weeks' nolle: 'nds the engagement. Sometimes tide sudden severance of business re? lations works a great hardship to tbo performer, who may bo "fired" at the mint most remote' from bis linse. Tint onietimes tho performer gots a bet? ter engagement, when he alms to give ?lotlco so as to be nearest his base vhen the two weeks shall havo ex olred. This scheme Is usually foiled ^y tho circus manager with the ??? him reniv; "you don't havo to wait two weeks. Quit now. tjo to lb wagou and get your money." This two-weeks' clause In contract!! 'is made use of by the manager at the -?lose of his metropolitan season, after Ms show has secured the lioarty in? dorsement of the metropolitan prcw. o cut down the expenses for the road, ehe last wpek of the metropolitan ngagement Is the real show?the nuch-clirtalled performance of the 'our under t:anvns. Somo attractions ^f au expensive character are hired inly for the iirst four or live weeks. ?Joine. after test, are are uot wanted. \ni\ are let go simultaneously with be short-term artists. A second cut ?isually is made In the full should a loutbcru trip be Included In the itl aerary. Of course the printing rc nalns the sanio In the Insi. case, nnd he tlualrical metropolitan press no 'ccs are used throughout the ontlrj icason. The fixed salaries of performers, H must bo borne In mind, include loard md lodging, the first being furnished n tho cook lent, the lattor in sleep ug accommodations on the cart. Originally, with the old-time circus Kiard and lodging meant hotel bills: ut the Immense size of tho modern how and the large personnel have hanged all of that'. The show tents ?inst be pitched In the suburbs of Mtles, far from tho base or local sup -lies, while- In mobi of the smaller owus tho ontlre hotel and boardlng -?isc accommodations would be In Adequate to care for the circus por ?onnnl. As performers may now go from he night, performance direct to th.' 'ars and to bed. and usually do ut>. 'hero is ample lime for proper res", 'ii roiito for the next stand. There 'leing no r-xcuso for ienving the show -rounds, and no necessity for private ?xpendltures beyond tho small fees 'ndlcated, to porters, etc.. !he salary ->r a circus performer is practically so much clear money: whereas tho 'heatrical performer must pay hotel Mils out of his salary, besldei-- risking "ho tomntatlons Incident to Idleness In tho city. The abolition of the street parodo, vltb the Barnnni show has greatly \raeIiorated the condition or the per 'ormers no far as that organization ic concerned. With the other shoves every person, whether high-class pcrr 'onner or groom. Is compelled tQ ap near In costume in the morning street aarado, under penalty of a heavy fine. \nd It was so with the Barnum phot* intll quite recently. The ol"ject of the >arade being to make as Imnoslng a ?nectnele as pofs'ble. evrybodv miift ?irn out. excepting cooks nnd such vatchmen and others as aro absoluto v necessary In camp. To further Ibis object, baggage wa ons. cages, hlpnodronie chariots, and ?nrv class of vehicles, with the ele ?bonts. esteelit and /other herd ani SBAte, with their frr brs, traluere and toefera, aro reo.ua- pned, as well as 1 s . . .

Cam tuuBt be provided to transport those, and time and labor devoted to their handling and enro. When a street parade Is on the move, many accidents occur, and the show Is often mulcted In damages. Hand wagons cost from $i?.00t> to $C 000 euch, all for a free show, the 11 nanclal rtturil? for which Mr. Bailey decided were dlsprouortInnate to the cost. Hut It Is merely mentioned hero in Its relation to the subject under consideration, the performers and i their duties and hardships. Tho streol parade necessitates ear ly rising, an early breakfast, an extra clumr.o of costume, a long and dusty' ride in tho hot sun, a scramble for dinner, and that "tired feeling" to be? gin the real day's work on a little later. And all of this to please a largo clasp of people who never upend a cent to see the real show. At the close of the season all em? ployes are discharged except a few necessary persona, like nnlmnl train? ers, the winter ofllco irtnff, ote. There Is nothing left of the show except tho animals and those who care for them, the wagons, tents and pnrn pherualio. These could possibly be duplicated for, Buy. $100.000. The Adam Foropaugh snow, once on the Verge of capitalization at $1.000,000 was sold to Mr. Bailey, good will and all. for $100,000.
