Two Seta of Diploma.
The existing hatred between the super
intendent and the School Board that re
fused to re-en ploy him resulted In two seti
of diplomas being ordered, one by the
superintendent from a Keokuk. la.. Arm
and another by the School Board from a
local printing establishment.
The Intention was for the superintendent
to deliver the diplomas to-night, but he re
fused to have anything to do with the '.!
stomas that had been ordered and signed
by the School Board.
Excitement was at fiver heat to-night
when St was thought that the diplomas that
were signed only by tho superintendent,
and which would, therefore, be worthless,
vera to be delivered, but after much par
leying and delay the School Board diplomas
were delivered.
There is talk of impeaching the superin
tendent, even though his term ends Satur
Eager for Kiowa Opening Allot
ments Will Not Be Delayed.
Washington. May IS. Representative
Charles Curtis of Kansas called at the In
terior Department to-day and urged that
the work of making allotments in the Ki
owa and Wichita Reservation should be
burrted forward.
Mr. Curtis came here at the request of
hundreds of homeseekers, who are looking
wistfully forward to the settlement of this
reservation. They have been worked up to
fever point by the recent tiling of a pro
test by Lone Wolf and other Kiowa In
diana against the opening of this reserva
tion to white men.
Certain papers In the Southwest have ex
derated the importance of this protest,
fating; that the department would go no
further in the allotments until Congress had
considered the remonstrance.
Aa stated In these dispatches at the time.
the Acting Secretary stated that the work
of malting allotments would not be delayed
a. moment. Mr. Curtis was so advised and
be 1 confident that the reservation will be
opened this fall, and that the proclamation
to this effect would be Issued not later than
admit &
Jfr. Curtis aays he received so many hun
dred; of letters in regard to the matter that
be felt compelled to come personally to
iWnsfngton to urge early action.

Measure Reported Favorably by
the Council Committee on Leg
islation Other Business.
The Public Welfare Commission Charter
Amendments bill was sent to engrossment
yesterday afternoon by President Honisby
of the City Council. The measure was re
ported fuorably by Chairman Markhain of
tlie Committee on Legislation. According
to the rules It will lie over two meetings-.
The principal amendments recommended
by the committee refer to street and sewer
Improvements, boulevards und street sprln1
kling. The luhlce of Street Commissioner
Varrelmann that street, sldenulk and alley
repairs be charged against the owners of
abutting property was accepted. The
description of public sewers was so en
larged that the board's power will be In
creased, leaving ample scope for discre
tion. Whenever district sewers may extend
outside the city limits-, or to the city limits,
so that residents outside of the district are
benefited, the cost for that portion of the
work will be paid by the city and not by
property owners of the district.
The section regarding street sprinkling
was amended by the committee so as to
permit of sprinkling throughout the entire
year. All year sprinkling would not be
obligatory. The clause simply provides
that it may be permissible, at the discre
tion of the Board of Public Improvements.
The section relating to boulevards was
changed by the elimination of the phrase
requiring that boulevards could onlv be
constructed within two blocks of an exist
ing boulevard. Tho amendments leave the
option with the board.
"The bill, with the committee's amend
ments" said Mr. Mnrkham. "will be ac
ceptable to city officials and to the Non
partisan Commission for the Public Wel
fare. We must now- proceed to pass the
bill and arrange for a special election to
enable the people of St. Louis to vote on
the proposed amendments to the City Char

Shipping Platforms Come Under
Provisions of Measure Intro
duced iu City Council.
Mr. llicliatd Introduced a bill In the
City Council esterday afternoon providing
that the location of shipping platforms on
sidewalks, streets and public places be au
thorized by the Board of Public Improve
ments, subject to the payment of license
by owners at the rate of 1 per annum for
each front foot.
InterUews with former President McMulh
and other member of the Hoard ot Public
lmproements Wire published in The Re
public last autumn, showing that. New
York, Chicago, Buffalo, Toronto mid, other
largo cities aro obtaining large annual rev
enues from the taxation of special prh li
eges. Iu some cities the taxation from this
source amounts to SW.OOO In the year.
Mr. Rlchards's bill applies only to ship
ping platforms, but. In all probability, other
bills will bo introduced prescribing rates of
taxation for all special privileges, such as
signs, pests, show eases, storm doors and
all devices and structures occupying spaco
in public places. Tho contention is that
tho city should receive adequato compensa
tion for special privileges, just us would any
prlvuto concern, if conditions w ero reversed.
It is estimated that the combined revenuo
would aggregate no less than $100,000 per
annum, and. In all likelihood, far in excess
of that amount.
The bill specifies that the permit be issued
by the board and the license by the Licen"o
Commissioner. The license shall, in no
case, bo for less than 0. The
penalty for violation of tho ordinance is a
fine of from $25 to K00. and forfeiture of the
license. Tho matter of taxation of special
privileges was quietly broached to Mayor
Wells soma weeks ago.
Cormick picked up a rock and threw It at
Mrs. Halrgrove, but the missile did not
strike her. Mrs. Halrgrove's husband called
a police officer and had McCormick ar
rested. Tho second trouble occurred May 4. Mc
Cormick returned home under the lnfiuenco
or liquor and began to quarrel with his
wife. He took the lamp from the table and
dropped It and the oil Ignited. Frank, his
11-year-old son, put out the fire.

The most serious problem that confronts
the weary housekeeper who must In sDlte of
tho exhausting "hot spell," prepare with
her own hands the food for the family
table. Is not so much what to provide, but
how to dispense, so far as possible, with
all useless und unnecessary cooking; how
to obtain a maximum of comfort with a'
minimum of heat In such manner as not to
seriously affect the needful supply ot ap
petizing and nourishing food.
First discard tho large roasts and heavy
boiled meats and such foods as require
great and prolonged beat. It is not possible
to do away with a certain amount of cooked
food for each day; but by careful selection
1: Is easy to diminish to a very great de
gree the discomfort arising from this ne
cessity. Our gardens furnish several delightful
substitutes for meats in hot weather and It
would be well for us to consider them more
closely and serve them more frequently,
especially for the early moraine meal, and
luncheon or supper. As a relish and to
take the place of the usual meat dish, to
matoes, eggplant or corn may be served In
many dainty ways. Cucumbers may also be
served same as eggplant for breakfast or
tea dish.
Drolled Egg Plant.
Cut an eggplant Into half Inch slices, do
not remove the skin. Dip each slice Into
a little oil, seasoned with salt and pepper:
place them on a fine wire broiler and broil
ovtr a clear and not too hot a Ore, for ten
minutes; live minutes for each side. Place
them on a heated dish, garnish with parsley
and serve with maltre d'hotel sauce.
Maltre d'llotel Sauce.
Put quarter of a pound of butter In a
small saucepan; add a level teaspoonful of
flnely-mlnced parsley; a little flnely-mlnced
thyme and quarter of a teaspoonful of
onion Juice, pinch of salt and dash of pep
per. Stand the saucepan over hot water
and whisk smartly with an egg whip until
the sauce reaches simmering point. Re
move and serve at once.

Choose rather small eggplants, wash and
dry and cut in halves. Scoop cut all the
lnsldo except a thin layer next the skin:
sprinkle the shells with salt and turn upside
down to drain. Chop the part you hare
taken from the shells. Mince onion, about
a tablcspoonful to each eggplant, and brown
It slightly in a little butter, then add to the
chopped eggplant and cookt together In a
snuccpan to cook out the moisture. Add a
few mushrooms chopped fine or a little
Worcestershire sauce and minced parsley.
Mix In nn equal quantity of dry bread
crumbs, season to taste with salt and pep
per. Cook all together a few minutes, then
remove from the fire and add the beaten
yolks of eggs, two to each plant. Fill the
shells, cover the top with bread crumbs,
put Into a shallow pan, brushed well with
oil, and bake half an hour unless1 shells are
small. This makes a nice dish for dinner
served without meat.
Drolled Tomatoes.
Scald and peel largo firm tomatoes and
put them Immediately In a cold place.
When ready to serve cut them Into slices
three-quarters of an Inch thick or a large
tomato in three pieces. Rub your fine wire
broiler with a piece of fat bacon, and lay
on the tomatoes and broil nn both aMa nn.

of cress or parsley.
The tomatoes will keep their shape bet
ter If they ore not peeled, but do not look
so nice. They may be dipped In oil In
stead of rubbing the grill with the bacon
and may bo served with a little grated
cheese sprinkled over them.
