He asks the friends of the women students not to use It, anH Urges the students themselves not to allow It. "They should he referred to as women," he says. "We want our young ladles to he true women and not imitators of college men." Ex-Governor Robert X. Taylor of Tennessee, who wants to be senator, has written a letter to an Inquiring pro hibitionist. "I have always been on the side of law and order," he says- "I have advocated temperance in every lecture I have ever delivered and in my commencement addresses to young men. I have voted for it, and if I am elected to the United States Senate, I shall aupport the Hepburn-Doliver bill." .. The screw manufacturers of England and Germany have formed a trust, with an agreement that the Germannakers shall keep out of the British market. It Is iald that prices have been ad vanced fifty per cent., and Consul Ma hln at Nottingham suggests that this may provide an opportunity for Amer ican' makers. The Hartford Times . thinks that when the latest pattern of Hartford screw machines gets to work the foreign makers will possibly have to revise their trust arrangements. A keeper was cleaning the hyenas' ? cage at Hall by the Sea, England. One of the animals improved the opprotun ity to turn upon the man In an ugly mood. The keeper promptly defended himself, and, to teach the animal man ners, gave it a drubbing until It slunk xyrfiifnef.'Oae of the spectators, a dear old lady, then remonstrated with the keeper and thought he had acted cruelly. The man stepped out of the cage, and, advancing to the lady, said: "P'raps, mum, you'd like to come in side and manage him!" The invitation was not accepted. ' An effort is being made in Worcester to break the will of the late William A. Richardson, who recently committed suicide by 'hanging, and in his will left stock valued at over $200,000 to the city 'of "Worcester for its park system. Rich ardson was a meat cutter, and when in his prime made $35 a week, lived on a quart of milk and a loaf of break a day, saved all his earnings and make fortunate investments. An Inventory of his estate showed stock valued at over $250,000. The claim of those con testing the will is that he was of un sound mind. Ex-Congressman J)hn R. Thayer appears for the wilt, and Attor ney General Parker for the next of kin who make the contest. It was related that a doctor was summoned to testify in a Virginia court regarding an accident case, the main faots of which were that the plaintiff claimed to have been blown up,' and came down In a sitting posture on some red hot iron. He claimed he could not extricate himself from this position for fully fifteen minutes. In order to rebut, the'lawyer for the defense asked him questions: "Doctor, if a man had sat on red hot iron for fifteen minutes, would he not have-been burned to the bone?" After a moment's thought the witness, Dr. Boutelle, replied: "Well if a man came to my office and told me such a etory, I should wish to take it with much lemon juice or a lot of salt. But, on the whole, I do not think .that a man sitting on red hot iron is the best Judge of the lapse of time." "No more questions, doctor." Emperor William when he goes voy aging in his yacht is frequently in a merry mood. He usually has on board as guests a number of prominent men, with a few of whom early rising is a fad. His majesty, however, rises eyery morning at 6 o'clock, and he often amuses himself by pounding on the doors of his guests' cabins and ordering them to Jump up and dress. Then af ter breakfast the Emperor compels the guests to line up and be drilled by the yacht's drill master in true military style.. Some of the gentlemen are sure to be portly and awkward, and the queer figures these cut excite their im perial, master to hearty laughter. The gymnasium on the yacht contains an electrlo horse, which jumps, kicks and plunges wildly, so -that only a good rider can escape a baa ta.ll The Em peror is extremely fond of riding this electric plunger and thus making fun for his guests. THE CAT. There are unfeeling, yea brutal, peo ple in this world who will mildly joy in the thought that the right of a man to kill cats that attack his property has again been judicially affirmed Though the right has never been seri ously questioned, it always causes trouble when exercised on some one's pet which has strayed away and gone on a predatory excursion, and meets an untimely death at the hands of some unsympathetic man. In the case which has just been decided at Worcester, Massachusetts, some valuable part ridges were menaced. Dr. Clifton F. Hodge of Clark University says that four of these partridges are priceless. The cat in question endeavored to get in and make a meal of these expensive bk-ds, and the court held that a man has a perfect right to protect his prop erty from an animal preying on it, and he incidentally added the dictum that "a cat is the most untamed animal in Christendom." The most untamed animal in Christ endom! And this "the harmless, nec essary cat." We pause for the com ments of the cat-lovers. GOOD WORK XX HOVSTOX. They are pretty thorough in Houston, Texas. An ordinance was made there awhile ago against the making of "goo goo' eyes by men. It Is going to be enforced, and as It is it has become necessary to officially and judicially de fine the words. The definition has been made, and it is worth attention, for while everybody who is anybody knows what "goo-goo eyes" are few could tell. This is what they are, according to the Houston deflner: "By the term "goo goo eyes" Is meant any contortion, un usual m'ovement or any fixed unusual attitude of the eyes, provided the said contortion, unusual movement or unus ual fixed attitude is made with the in tent of attracting, alluring or conjuring the attention of any woman or female, as the said ordinance recites. The 'in tent' is the point on which the main construction must be placed. A stare is a 'goo-goo' if it is committed with in tent; a wink accompanied by intent is a 'goo-goo;' likewise the cocking of an eye. ogling, making wide eyes, all come within the broad sweep' of the term 'goo-goo,' if accompanied toy intent The meat of the nut is intent With out it no person is guilty of the crime of 'goo-gooing.' " Pretty clear and comprehensive. Per haps this definition will get into the next great dictionary. Sheep's eyes were long ago defined. Thus the Spec tator said: "Those (eyes) of an amor ous, roguish look derive their title even from the sheep; and we say such a one has a sheep's eye, not so much to de note the Innocence as the simple sly ness of the cast." IIFE AXD DEATH IX MAXILA. The United States hasn't been in the Philippines long enough to make Ma nila a very healthy place. The official report of the Board of Health for the Philippine islands, June 15, 1905, on vital and sanitary statistics in May last shows that Manila has a population of 219,941, the Americans numbering 4,389; Spaniards, 2,528; other Europeans, 1,117; Chinese, 21,230, and' Filipinos, 189,782. There were 600 births reported in May, of which 45 were Illegitimate; but the actual number of births was much greater. Ten of the births were Amer ican, the rate being 26-6 per 1,000 Amer icans. The Filipino rate was 36.1 per 1,000; the Spanish, 13.8; other Euro peans, 10-46; Chinese, 17.20. The deaths of persons under 5 were 303. Between 5 and 20 the deaths were few, but from 20 to 40 years the military age they are numerous. From 20 to 25 the deaths. In May were 30; from 25 to 30 years, 32; from 30 to 40 years, 58. The anntfal death rate per 1,000, calculated on the basis of the deaths in the first months of 1905, were: January, 36.69; February, 36.05; March, 30.15; April, 29.32; May, 28.16. Perhaps Manila is now as near Heaven as any other place. So dying there isn't a3 sad as ?t used to be. SOME XAYATj ZESSOXS. The lessons of the Russo-Japanese war are all going to be learned. The Revue de Paris has an article iby an expert on the naval lessons of the war. What most impresses Frenchmen, he says, is the comparative failure of the torpedo. Apart from the surprise at tack of February 8, 1904, in which the torpedo failed to effect all that was ex pected of it, the part which it played in the Japanese success was almost neg ligible. Yet Japan had sixty torpedo boats and destroyers which gave evi dence of extraordinary endurance and stubbornness. The Russians had an al most equal number of those Vessels, which were still less successful. The writer then goes on to argue that tor pedoes carried by battleships and cruisers, and discharged from tubes below water are extremely difficult to work, and were not used on a single occasion in the late war. He considers that the United States was well advis ed in surpassing this useless torpedo in its new ships. "The torpedo can only be -used at a short distance and as a surprise, it is the weapon of small vessels. That of large ships- is the gun; and it was by its guns that the Japan ese fleet won its victories. It is almost certain that the guns have not eunk battleships, but guns reduced them to silence and confusion and delivered them up to the torpedo boat." Another point upon which the writer dwells is that even vessels subjected to a very heavy fire were still able to keep afloat and reach port with their own eteam, and that, now as in the past, it is the losses among the crews rather than material Injuries which put ships out of action. The loss of men who are in their way specialists is ir remediable. He then quotes figures to show that a battleship which has suf fered no serious injury and is still pro vided with arms and ammunition may be forced by losses among her officers and crew to seek safety in flight.

Tribe Has Endeavored for Years to Re cover Them From the Pawnees. The Dog Soldier band of Cheyenne Indians from western Oklahoma has just completed a visit with the Skedee band of the Pawnees, near Pawnee. The Cheyennes to the number of 300 came to recover two sacred arrows cap tured from them by the Pawnees many years ago, and this visit was the first time the two bands had met in friendly council since the time when both were on the warpath- The Pawnees, enter tained the Cheyennes at a war dance and gave them many presents, Includ ing ponies, blankets, calico and, provi sions, but would not relinquish the, sacred arrows. THhe Cheyennes per formed what they called the lightning dance. The two sacred arrows were captured from the Cheyennes in battle on Platte River, Neb., about sixty years ago. A Pawnee who had previously been crip pled and who preferred death to the suffering caused by his wounds had stationed himself far in advance of the other Pawnees in a clum of bushes. As he was picking off a great many Cheyonnes with his arrows they saw that it was necessary to dislodge him. Accordingly a bunch of Cheyenne warriors on horseback made a dash for the clump of bushes, their sacred ar rowkeeper in the lead. He had the ar rows, four In number, fastened to a long spear, and as he struck at the Pawnee the crippled man dodged to one side and grasped the spear, wresting it from the Cheyenne's hand. Almost simultaneously with the charge of the Cheyennes, a few Pawnees In the rear, seeing the danger, of their, crippled brave, rushed to i; his assistance, Tha Cheyennes were thus routed before they could regatn( their sacred arrows. About ten years' later the Cheyennes recovered two of their sacred arrows by giving the Pefwnees 200 ponlts. In their negotiations here the Cheyennes were unable to, convince the Pawnees that the two arrows still In the latter's possession should be surrendered at this time. The Pawnees said that If the Dog Soldier Cheyennes s;hould prove worthy friends of the Skedee band after the intended visit of the Pawnees to the Cheyenne next summer the Pawnees may listen to a proposal from the Cheyennes. At this time the Chey ennes must be satisfied with the pres ents they have received. Frofti the Kansas City Journal. THE CHARLESTON WAY.

No in novation has been permitted in the management. No one tries to break the rules, which are unique. Posibly the most peculiar one Is the refusal of the man agers to allow women to sit outside the ball room with . men. Stairway flirtations, cozy-corner tete-a-tetes, are simply not allowed. One woman, known throughout American society as one of the potential leaders of the Newport smart set, thought herself above the tra ditions of the Carolina ball. She was a guest at. this dance when in Charleston and began the evening by Sitting out dances in secluded corners outside the ball rcom. Comment ran rife. The 16 managers consulted to gether. The president, a man of great manner and unfailing elegance, took upon himself the duty of correcting the New York woman. Finding her in a secluded corner, as usual, he kindly informed her of the comment she brought upon herself by breaking the best known rule of the society. She was inclined to be ungracious about it and intimated that the managers were ol dfogles. "It is done in London and New York," shed eflantly said. "But not in Charleston, madam," answered the president, as he offered her his arm, which he never removed until she took it. He then led h!f back to the ball rcom and offered her a chair.
