[J Will Go in Mediaeval Dress
\ WASHINGTON, Jan. 16? Plans for
? the woman suffrage pageant March 3
* have been perfected. The novel spec
- tacle of women wearing mediaeval or
ancient Greek costumes will be wlt
? The procession will be divided into
? five sections and with each section
* will be heralds dressed In mediaeval
? costumes, who will from time to
? time along the route of the parade
J repeat famous suffrage speeches which
? have been made in the last few years
? in this and foreign countries. The
| parade will be composed of floats, al
? lcgorical figures portraying the con
? dition of women from the dawn of
I creation down to the present time.
* So far as possible, women musicians
will compose the bands and the dem
- onstration will be reinforced by the
. presence of parading men sympathiz
ers of the cause.
A resolution appealing from the de
cision of Major Sylvester, chief of
the Washington police, to refuse the
women a permit to parade on Penn
sylvania avenue was adopted and vig
orous protests against the edict will
be made to the commissioners. Fail
ing of redress here, the women pro
pose to take the matter to President
Taft. For over one hundred years
Pennsylvania avenue had been open
to men paraders, and the refusal of
the first request made by women for j
a similar privilege will be met with
a general campaign of resistance.
The Congressional committee (the
"lobby") of the National American
Women Suffrage Association has op
ened headquarters in Washington.
Miss Alice Paul, of Philadelphia and
M iss Emma Burns of New York will
represent the National Association,
co-operating with two members ap
pointed by the several suffrage asso
ciations of the District of Columbia.
Announcement was made by Miss
Paul that the principal efforts of the
committee would be to secure from
the extra session of Congress the pas- |
sage of a resolution providing for an j
amendment to the Constitution of the I
United States enfranchising all the j
women of the country.
I High Cost of Living
in South America
The Americans engaged in the rub
ber trade in South America, far up
I the Amazon river, never kick at the
cost of living when they get back to
Uncle Sam's domain. To begin with
. it costs $500 for one person to get
' there and back. His troubles begin
when he looks around and does a little
All meats are 50 cents a pound, and
the ice to keep them from spoiling
is five cents a pound. Potatoes are
14 cents a pound and rice is eight
cents. Itread is 28 cents for a two
pound loaf -and it isn't such wonder
ful bread either. Butter is 60 cents
. and sugar is 14 cents. Eggs cost 10
cents apiece when you can get them
at all and milk is 85 cents a pint. !
Beer is 50 cents a bottle and whiskey
is $2.00 a quart. Coal costs $22.00 i
a ton and one is charged 25 cents
to have a shirt washed and six cents .
| for a collar or a handkerchief.
The American has to stay there '
from July until February if he is in <
the trubber trade. One worker can
tap about one hundred trees a day '
and from this he gets a pail of rub
ber milk which he has to smoke up
each afternoon when his day's work
is done. Then the crude product is
ready for shipment.
American Catalogues in
the Chinese Language
American firms are preparing cata
, logs and advertising matter in the
Chinese language, with an end in
view of reaching the demands and
| tastes of the Chinese trade. Sewing
machines, phonographs, lamps, pat
ent medicines, yeast and yeast pow
der, cigarettes, and condensed milk
are among the articles extensively ad
vertised by placards in Chinese post
ed about the streets of Chinese cities.
One enterprising American baking
powder firm has an illustrated book
let containing numerous recipes in
Chinese and distributed among the
An American university issues its
catalog in Chinese to attract Chinese
students desirious of going abroad fori
a Western education. An American!
correspondence school advertises very
extensively in Chinese throughout the
cities of China and does considerable
business with ambitious students.
Many American patent medicines are
advertised throughout China by lit
erature in Chinese only.
A leading American sewing machine
company also attributes much of its
sucess to the spreading of its Chinese
advertising literature among the Chin
ese people. Recently a large whole
sale American drug house secured an '
idea of an appropriate trade mark for
its products in China from an Amer
ican consul and is now issuing its '
labels and advertising matter in con
nection with this trade mark, the lat

"A BAS LE REFEREE"
PARIS, Jan. 15.?For the first time
in France a football riot occurred re
cently. It was at the Pare des Princes
Paris, after a Scottish Rugby team had
defeated a French team by a score
I of 21 to 3.
The mob broke down the barriers
and assailed the referee, J. W. Bax
ter, with sticks and stones. It re
quired the united efforts of the play
ers, police and mounted officers to
break up the disturbance and rescue
: the official.
On returning to Paris a large crowd
of the spectators of the game paraded
the boulevards, shouting "A bas le
referee!" Afterward they made a
demonstration in front of the offices
of a sporting newspaper.
