who were hoping for a political crisis In
France before Easter hate been deceived
In their hope.
The Chambers haIns adjourned to Ma)
17, after the municipal elections, and the
President of the Republic having left for
his estates, thcro is nothing to occupy pol
iticians but the approach of the municipal
elections, which will take place on the first
Sunday of Slay, and the composition of
the. Committee of Inaulry charged with in
vestigating naval affairs under SI. Pelle
tan and his predecessors.
M. Pelletan and SI. Combes have jlmfly
come to an understanding on the mibjssct
Of this committee. There will be appoint
ed on It all those who are likelv to cause
talk abroad: first of all, former Ministers
of Marino, who oppose St Pelletan; then
the most active Senators like SI Clemen

lican groups of the Chamber of Deputies
and, lastlv. distinguished specialists Like

Besides, we have now another subject
to quarrel about. It Is SI. Valle. Minis
ter of Justice, who furnishes us with it.
He has-Just ordered, through a circular
letter, the taking down of all religious em

There will no longer be In th8 court
rooms the crudHxes before whleh wit
nesses were sworn. They were used, evi
dently, to constrain Catholic witnesses to
tell the truth through fear of hell
Justice will be obliged to replace hell
by applving severe penalties to false wit
nesses, as, for that matter. Judge Paget
has done In the case of Mr. and Sirs
Fair, the American couple, who died vic
tims of n automobile accident. The legis
lation of all countries, moreover. Is much
more Eevere than ours against falsa wit

RUBAYAT NOW ENGLAND'S
FASHIONABLE BIBLE.
FECIAL BT CABLE TO THE BT LOUIS RE
PUBLIC AND TKB NEW TORK HERALD.
London, April 9.-CopyrIght, 190L)
"London society Is not Irreligious, but It
Is broadly marked by a spirit of polite
scepticism, and the fashionable Bible of
the moment Is the Rubayat, that epitome
of matter-of-fact pessimism."
uah ! the summing up of an experi
enced observer, who Is a man mixing in
.many sets and competent to form an opln
"lon from actual knowledge ana without a
prejudice of the society In which he
moves.
"As a matter of fadt," writes this au
thority. "London society la so large and
consists of s many cliques that every
form of belief and unbelief has come to
flourish snd obtains some followers
"Scores of women, whose names figure
In the society columns week after week,
are likely to be dabblers In religious mat-
ters They know the Koran and the
Tenets of Buddha, and are familiar with
the American adaptions of Eastern no
tions. Moreov er, they read books on te'ep
athy and spiritualism. They are Inclined
to dabble in palmistry, and ore not ig
norant of crvstalllzlng. They have a small
ring of the scientific attacks made by
Huxley and his followers on the Scripture.
They have gleaned at least a demolishing
aj-Fect of the higher criticism sermons of
iren like Capon Henson who are quoted
so far only as they are destructive of the
old belief, and the Infallibility of the
Scripture Is freely poohooed."

un lrih peeress reeentlv
'"iou know verv little." was the grave
reply, "if ou think that anv passui":
nave of aristocratic Indifference cin affect

That exactly sums up the situation. It
is of uo national consequence. Among the
clever and reflneu wemen immortality
wenw to bo dreaded, not desired, and this
cravimr for eternal sleep Is a curious
contemporary feature.

Women riding astrido in Rotten Row Is
a spectacle promised to those who fre

have assured the sartorial expert of a
London contemporary that orders for di
vided skirts are arriving from a large and
ever-Increasing number of horsewomen.
New "ride-astride" garments have been
Invented and are exclusively advertised In
the fashion journals. Current fashion pa
pers are full of the subject. The Ladles'
Tailor Is almost exclusively devoted to It
and discusses, among other aspects of the
question, the effect of riding astride upon
the health.
' Some doctors," declares this journal,
"say that women of mature age have de
v eloped anatomically In a way that would
render a change from the side saddle to
the cross saddle very uncomfortable, and
unless they took fresh lessons in riding it
would be dangerous "
