dy and Mr. Storrow what they had to
say about the conditions Mr. Storrow
at once said: "The conditions are good
enough for us; Harvard is in favor of
starting the race on time."
General Skiddy hesitated as he looked
at the fluttering flags and the rippling
Thames, which all but broke into white
caps in places, and then said: "Mr.
Referee, Yale would like to have better
conditions. These conditions are not in
our favor, but we cannot say that it is
too. rough to start the race."
This frank statement settled the ques
tion, and at ten minutes after four Ref
eree Richards had the two big crews
lined up at their stakes and ready for
the crack of the pistol. The long ob
servation trains had crept up the river
and stretched a long stream of blue and
crimson along either side of the silvery
course. Back on the green hills hun
dreds of spectators had crowded around
the start. For miles down the river an
avenue of yachts and launches and
rowboats had formed beneath the flut
tering flags of Fair Harvard and Old
Tale. The puffing, hammering naphtha
launches that bore police flags had
cleared the course and left it in perfect
condition for the race. The officers of
the revenue cutters asked Chairman
Schweppe, of the regatta committee, if
everything was all right, and he at once
called out: "Mr. Referee, the course is
Yale men heaved a long sigh as they
looked down the river and sized up the
wind into which their crew would have
to fight its way. Harvard men were
happy. They had struck Just the condi
tions of tide and wind which they had
been looking for.
Yale made no complaint, but every
Tale oarsman, both young and old, lit
erally prayed to the gods of the winds
for mercy. The long, slow call of the
referee sang out in the stillness which
even on the broad river became intense
as the two eights swung forward their
Shoulders for the first stroke.
"Are you ready, Harvard? Are you
ready, Yale?"
Bang! went the referee's pistol, and
the crews ripped their oars through the
.water and shot away from their stake
boats. It seemed as if they started on
equal terms. After the first few strokes

everyone, settled down to 32 strokes to
the minute, while the Yale crew, which
had been rowing a 30-stroke at the most
in practice, was rowing 84 strokes to the
minute. This lasted for almost half a
mile, and it became apparent that the
Yale men had been instructed never to
lose the lead. They were fighting for
it, even though it was at a big cost.
By the time the first half-mile flag was
reached, however, Yale had dropped her
stroke down to 32, Harvard's gait. But
even rowing at this, Harvard had got a
little the better of Yale.
Over the second half mile Yale grad
ually settled do-wn Into her normal gait,
which was 30 strokes to the minute, and
as the Ells did this the Cambridge men
let their stroke down to 31. The experi
ence and the level head of Captain Fil
ley began to become conspicuous. He
was watching his rival, Boulton, and
measuring him with deadly aim. The
two crews held this stroke from a short
distance after the first half-mile flag
had been passed almost to the two-mile
flag. When the Elis settled down to
their normal gait their shell traveled
better and they not only cut down Har
vard's, slight lead, but gained two sec
onds on Harvard. Yale, however, held
this sight advantage for only a short
distance. Harvard put on her steam,
and the boats finished the mile and a
half on even terms.
Yale's efforts, however, began to tell
on her men just before the end of the
first two miles and Boulton dropped
the stroke to 29. When Filley saw this
he quickly put his stroke up to 32 and
at the navy yard he once more had his
crew in the lead. Yale put her stroke
back to 30 and held it over the third
mile. As soon as Filley had taken the
lead away from Yale he let his stroke
down to 30 and at this gait 'both crews
passed the two and a half mile flag
and the three mile flag.
It was now clear for the first time
that barring some accident the race be
longed to the Crimson. Filley had more
power to spare than Boulton had, and
Yale's swing was beginning to look
look slow and heavy. Half a mile from
the finish Yale had dropped her stroke
down to 28 to the minute from sheer
exhauston while Harvard still held
her's at 30. But even at this point

In the Williams River country of
West Virginia the bears are greatly on
the increase. There is a blue ' grass
settlement about- the extreme head of
the river, says Recreation, which has
all but been driven out of the sheep
business by bears.
On the Black Mountain run one man
claimed to have identified the signs of
117 bears in one day's hunt. That seems
a good many bears, but I have hunted
and fished so long and told about my
adventures at so many campflres that
I cannot consistently deny anything.
Nevertheless, every now and then a
hunter runs upon a bear and kills it.
Premedlated klllng of bears is rarely
known, as this wisest of the forest ani
mals knows well how to 'avoid men. A
rabbit is courageous compared to a
bear. This shown the superior intelli
gence of Bruin.
About twenty years ago an unarmed
fisherman killed a bear with a large
stone at the Red Hole. He was resting
at the top of a precipitous bank of
MauCh Chunk shale when a bear,
chased by dogs came Into the river and
passed at the foot of the bank. The
man cast a large stone down upon it
and stunned it so that he was able to
kill it. It was a two-year-old. The
occuraence Is well authenticated.
The sheep killers are generally the
biggest bears of them all and are very
wise. They never enter a field without
making a complete circuit to see if a
man has crossed the fence. If he has
they withdraw.
One sheep raiser found that hang
ing a half dozen lighted lanterns about
his farm caused the bears to leave his
flock severely alone. '
New Orleans nnl Yellow Jack.
Slowly, indeed, does "the average
American city learn its lesson of health
protection by experience. New Orleans
seems, by this year's example, to be
an exception.
A case of suspected yellow fever, says
McCludre's, appeared in one of of the
hospitals in March! It was immediate
ly announced. Neighboring States were
notified. No concealiment was attempt
ed. The case proved not to be the dreaded
disease, but the approaching campaign
of prevention was healthy stimulated.
The public began to inspect all favor
able places for the breeding of stegom
yia, wtgglers, and to patch up the
screens. ' ..
This is likely to be a hard year for
mosquitoes in Louisiana, with a long,
open season and neither sex., age nor
species spared. The national authori
ties aranged to put Marine Hospital
men on guard at infected Central and
South American ports, an inestimably
important precaution.
Despite the utmost of human effort
there wil probably be " some sporadic
yellow fever in or about New Orleans.
I believe that there is small danger of
its assuming serious proportions in the
aroused and enlightened city.
More to be feared in the likelihood of
senselessly premature quarantine by
Louisiana's neighboring States. What
ever happens, New Orleans will face
the issue fearlessly and openly. So
much she has shown. If her neighbors
deal as honorably with her ai she with
her neighbors, there will be little to
fear for the South, this year or any
New Orleans has raised no monu
ments to the heroes of last year's cam
paign I doubt if she knows them for
heroes; but there is a new spirit in the
city, a finer selfreliance, a stronger
sold'arity, as of men who have fought
shoulder to shoulder in the crisis of a
great peril.

How Carlos of Portugal Decided Bis
marck's Trlek to Hurry German
Crown Prince's Decision Edward's
First Meeting With Danish Princess
King Carlos is one of the very few
reigning monarchs who decided whom
he would marry, though this is not
saying that, his advisers were opposed
to the princess of his choice;, but it had
always, even in his school days, been
and understood thing that he would
wed an Austrian princess. To this idea,
however, he developed objections, and
consequently, when he approached a
marriageable age, meetings were ar
ranged in the usual delicate and diplo
matic manner between him and the
most suitable Roman Catholic princes
ses in Europe.
The late Countess de Paris found that
her charming ' daughter, Princess
Ainelle d'Orleans, had by soma mis
chance been overlooked in the search
for consorts for the youn.tr prince, and
caused a very fine portrait of the prin
cess to be hung conspcuously at the
French Embassy at Lisbon, where it
attracted the atention and evoked the
admiration of Prince Carlos on his next
visit to the Ambassador, the Count de
"Ah!" exclaimed the Crown Prince,
as his eyes fell upon the portrait,
"What a charming girl! I asume," he
added, with a sorrowful air, "that she
does not chance to be a princess?"
"She is the Trlncess Amelie . d'Or
leans," responded the Countess de
Ferronaye, 'and she is as charming as
she appears,"
Within fofty-'elght hours Prince Car
los was in Paris, and a week or two
later his engagement to Princess Ame
lie was announced.
The matter of selecting a suitable
wife for a royal prince Is one of vary
ing difficulties, say London Tit-Bits,
and, manifestly, the nearer to the
throne the prince happens to be the
greater are the difficulties of those up
on whom the task devolves, and the less
likely the prince is to be allowed a vice
in the mater, though he may, as he
sometimes does, enhance the troubles of
his advisors by rejecting their sugges
A royal marriage is generally consid
ered to have considerable political in
fluence, although history rather dis
counts the idea, and perhaps the last
things considered are the personal
charms of princesses. In very many
cases, indeed, a vague idea of whom a
prince shall eventually marry Is arlved,
at while he is still in the nursery, and
it Is quite lmposible to say whether
the selected princess gives promise of
being suitable in the way of disposition
and charms. Such early plans gen

pretty certain to necessitate a change

Unqualified Success of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound in the
Case of Mrs. Fannie D. Fox.
Oneof the greatest triumphs of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is
the conquering of woman's dread en
emy, Tumor, ,
The growth of a tumor is so sly that
frequently its presence is not suspected
until it is far advanced.
So-called "wandering- pains" may
come from its early stages, or the
presence of danger may be made mani
fest by profuse monthly periods, accom
panied by unusual pain, from the
abdomen through the groin and thighs.
If you have mysterious pains, if there
are indications of inflammation or dis
placement, secure a bottle of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound right
away and begin its use. .
Mrs. Pinkham, of Lynn, Mass., will
give you her advice if you will write
her about yourself. She is the daughter-in-law
of Lydia E. Pinkham and,
for twenty-five years has been advising
sick women free of charge.
Dew Mrs. Pinkham:
" 1 teke the liberty to congratulate vou on
the success I have had with your wonderful
medicine. Eighteen months ago my periods
stopped. Shortly after I felt so badly that
I submitted to a thorough examination bv a
physician and was told that I had a tumor
and would have to undergo an operation.
" Soon after I reod one of your advertise
ments and decided to give Lvdia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound a" trial. After
taking five bottles as directed the tumor is
entirely gone. I have been examined by a
physician and he says I have no signs of a
tumor now. It has also brought my periods
around once more, and I am entirely
well." Fannie D. Fox, 7 Chestnut Street,

brought up in that faith is generally
regarded as to her disadvantage by the
more strict advisers at court.
The question of religion, in fact,
sometimes proves a very great difficulty
in aranglng royal marriages. It is prac
tically inevitable that a princess who
marries a monarch, an heir apparent,
or as heir presumptive should embrace
her future husband's faith (as in the
case of Princess Ena), even though thp
Pope could grant a dispensation free
ing her from the obligation, with the
rangement that male issue should be
brought up in the father's faith. The
Empress of Russia, it will be remem
bered, entered the Greek Church prior
to her mariage with the Czar.
This marriage was one oft the many
brought about by Queen Victoria, whose
affections for her beautiful grand
daughter was very deep. The late Czar,
too, was very anxious for the marriage,
but, although desirable In every way
it did not quite please the Czarevitch
who was in no hurry to become a bene
dict and was very backward in his suit.

Confidences were therefore exchanged
between the Czar, his father, and
Queen Victoria with a view to making
the match without delay. In consequ
ence, of what the Queen said, the Czar
had an . interview with the Czaevltch,
who practically received orders from
hira to propse to the Princess at the op
portunity, which had already been ar
ranged for. The Czarevitch was obe
dient in accepting the opportunity but
somewhat recalcitrant in his manner of
doing so.
"My father, Who is my Emperor," he
is alleged to. have said, stiffly, "has
commanded me to offer you my hand
and heart-"
'"My grandmother, who is Queen of
England," replied the Princess, with
that sweet smile which has won so
much devotion, "has comanded me to
acept you hand;, but for your heart I
acept it of myself."
The characteristic obstinacy, of the
German Emperor made the difficulty of
finding a wife for htm an exceedingly
delicate matter, and Prince Bismarck,
who was intrusted . with the task,
scarcely enjoyed the honor. A full
dozen eminently suitable princesses
were proposed to Prince William, as he
was, his father, at that time the Crown
Prince Frederick, used every means to
induce him to name one of them, but
all in vain. The .Crown. Princess used
her influence with no better effect, and
his grandfather, the Emperor, sent him
to this court and that, where he would
become acquainted with eligible prin
cesses, although it was the general
wish that he should marry f Princess
Augusta of Schleswig-Holstein,
The Prince was still as far as ever
from making up his mind when Bis
marck tcok a hand in the game. So
far he had acted through others, but
now he called a family council and,
on the Prince's antipathy towards him
self, which was marked even in those
days, he deprecated the suggestion that
his Highness should marry- the Prin
cess Augusta, giving more or less shal
low reasons, and emphatically urging
the claims of another Princess. Some
of Bismarck's remarks about the Prin
cess Augusta so aroused the Prince's
ire that he broke up .the meeting by
leaving the room, banging the door
as he went. He had never seen the
Princess at that time and his anger
was merely the outcome of his chival
ry; but shortly afterward he made a
point of meeting the Princess on an
occasion Bismarck had already arrang
edand when next the question Of his
mariage was broa'ched he announced
his Intention of marrytne the charmina
I princess-who is the present Empress;
j Princess Augusta of Schleswig-Hol
It is said that Bismarck's Unfavor
able opinion of the princess had no lit
tle influence in causing William III to
drop pilot" on ascending to the throne
for of course Bismarck was not the
man to admit that he" had ' tricked
Prince Williams. ' 1
King Edward's mariage was render
ed easy of arangement by the beauty
and charming disposition of Princess
Alexandra of Denmark inf act, thg
marriage may be said to have arrang
ed itself. They had met and played;
together as children, and thereafter the
young Prince always evinced an Inter
est an interest in the Princess: When
he reached the age 6f 19 and it became;
time to settle his future, Queen Victor
ia proposed a German princess for his:
consort, but Prince Edward had tender
recollections of the sweet Princess. Ale
andra, and he decided ho" would like to
meet her again before acepting his au
gust mother's sugestion. A meeting on.
the Continent was therefore brought
about and on the Prince 'returning" to
London, the engagement was formally
announced. ' ,
