oney Makes Trouble An- the House
Wife Should Have Separate Al
lowance Women Run the
House Purse Better ' .,
While, in no way favoring wcman
.juffrage I am a strong- exponent of
the married woman's independence,
In oneparticular at leasl. ' - "
To'iiiy mind there is nothing that
makes a woman feel so pmall as to
.have to continually Ask her husband
for money necessary - to meet; the nu
merous small bills of the household
or amounts required . whenX- she r g.cres
shopping or travelling.
4 The really just husband will see . at
the' very beginning of his. married. ,life
that his wifehas- her separate purae
and a allowance, whether s it be large
or small.' This private, individual
money!. she .should be privileged to
spend without question, using it Just
as freely as the man used' his money
if he -wants to buy baseball tickets or.
cigar sv ' - . -.iTv- i.
In the maCter of a household .alJoW
ince, a wife should make a. monthly
accounting. - . -
This Us only fair to the -househdld
provider, who can thus -' see , what
things cost, and perhaps, if, he be the
' betterTEinaricier of the" two," may sug
gest where retrenchment - could be
made. " In aK" probability however,' this,
will not be : necessary, " tot Hhe .great
majority of- women are better- man-,
agers, rwuere n coiuea : w , x uuums .
house than s man.. .,.-,,.r4i,,.,.'(.
A stimulus to economy is tot 'the
husband to tell the wife she- can have,
for her own all 'she is able to save
within: the limit of the- monthly allow-,
ance. -.'...,.-.. . .-Lit .
Borne- men are afraid to mo- this,,
thinkine their wives wiSl starve' thenv
But - the husband, wh6 has1 the right
kind of: wife, "Will find that this Tpla
works -wonderfully well, ;v,..:l1:,,' -
la the matter of dress allowance
also, a man who can "afford it ought
to put; in, the bank the first of every
war a certain sum for this nufpQse; in
his wife's name. -Then every, time she.
needed veH or new shoes, she aoes
not have o come to him like a beggar
a ikies-for alms.
A woman prefers the spending: - of
. her own money, to bavin dress mak
Ta and milliners paid by her -husband's
theeka. -.-;."..-
One woman, whose wealthy hilabahd
disapproved of her having cash to
handle? -though- perfectly willing to pay
exorbitant bills Of her making, be
came desperate over this situation. To
furnish herself with . a few dollars tor
the little . things - a' woman loves to
buy.'shS had extra amounts added to
the bills, borrowing, the . cash' from
. modistes and others who received her.
husband's checks. '
This, worked so easily at first that
she- grew reckless, and 'borrowed so
much from a certain ladies' tailor that
her husband refused -to pay. a bill that
even in his masculine blindness he
recognised as excessive. . . i
Then came the explosion end conse
quent ifiisclosure. : : ' "" "'
. How much better it ' would - have
been for this woman to have received
a smaller amount in actual cash.which
?he would have understood had to
buy all her hats, gowns,, wrapjsand
. She would havs Hone it too, as every
woman will who fully appreciates that
she la responsible?-for the expenditure
of any appropriation: - .
There are undeniably more rows in
married life over the money question
" than from any other, cause. The best
' way - to eliminate these disturbances
and to mal.2 a woman feel, that he is
a personality instead of a cipher la for
the husband and wife to carry sepa
rata purses, each proportioned In ac
cordance with the demands to be
made -upon It, and . the income. , of the
provider who furnishes both. .

The first ."model city" for workmen
was formally opened thirty-eight
years ago today on the Shaftesbury
Park Estate, near Wandworth,- Lon
don, S. W.. This was the first at
tempt to provide ideal cottage homes
for laborers, artisans and clerks and
to' relieve the congestion prevailing in
the crowded tenement districts of the
world's metropolis. The ' Earl of
Shaftesbury was largely instrumental
in the formation of the Artisans'
Laborers' and General Dwellings Com
pany, .which prompted the enterprise.
The scheme was very successful and
estates were purchased in the vicini
ty of a number of British industrial
centers. The problems of congestion
despite the slight relief afforded, by
such "model cities" continue to be
acute, and are now receiving serious
consideration by the sociological ex
perts of all big cities pf Europe and
America. Thomas A. Edisn has
lately predicted that the problem will
be solved by means of.- his cement
"poured houses." '

Said to Be WiUJng to Meet
. Joe In Madison Square
' According to dispatches from - Chi
cago Jack Johnson haif broken his si
lence regarding a match with - Joe
Jeannette, and is now 'thinking of tak
ing -on the Hoboken negro. Appar
ently Johnson has given up hope of
meeting Al Palzer in New York. Not
only would soch a match be frowned
upon by the 'Boxing Commission, but
there does not appear to be any pro
moter willing to stage the affair.
Withrtwo negroes it is different. Two
clubs have standing offers for such a
match. ".; ' . . ...
Johnson has given as a reason fop
his desire to now meet' Jeannette that
he wants to show the Boxing Com-4
mission that he cannot T)e kept out
6t,mew York. ' commissioner o'Neii
is on record as saying that he Would
not' allow Johnson to hex here undet
any conditions, ifowever, he t wouW
probably change , his mind if shown
that there is. a demand for the cham
pion's appearance with a member of
his own race and one of nearly equal
ability. - . . ' , ...
If ' Johnson rejilly means business It
will be "good . news to Jeannette, who
has . been challerigns with a steady
persistency for many months. No
doubt, also, the match would be a
tremendous attraction. 'Although ne
gro boxers ' when matched together
seidonf stir up the fans toy 'the limit
oij enthusiasm, this bout would be an
exception. tt can be said for Jeah-i
nette that, he has never been accused
of dishonest practices; he has the -confidence
.of-the fans. ' . ? ,
When ' Jeannetta boxed Sam Lang
ford at the Garden last year the bout
was a real fight v and there was no
question , of stalling, jeannette' e great
showing at the 'time caused ring .fol
lower to wonder tf he would not, have
a-good chance of beating1 the cham
pion.' It is conceded by many that
in any case Jeannette' is capable of
extending Johnson. ; For : years the
Galveston black has been handling his
opponents with such consummate" ease
that there is not an admirer 'of box
ln in tha country who is not curious
to see .him extended 'to the limit in
order to ascertain just how good ha
really is. Before Johneon 'met Tom
my Burn he was mlxsd up in many
affairs that appeared dose. However,
there was always the suspicion that
he was stalling to suit his own. pur-
fiose, whether this is so or not the
act remains "that with tha exception
of that; mueh-disoussed knockdown
sdored by Stanley. Ketchel, none' of his
opponents in late years has been able
to cause, him, a nroment's distress.

for no pereon butla' bug would '".ask
such a question, and Chief Meyers,
who was a little bit bolder than the
others, inquired the number.
"Out came a book that looked. like
an ancient Bible, but it proved to
be a book of dope, such a mass of
figures that even John H. Grwber,
one ot the leading statisticians in the
country would be proud to own.
"Well, you see," said the bug, "The
Gitnts have been a member of the Na

Khe Pirates, so we will have to start
in about 1887 when the Pittsburgh team
left the old American Association and
cast its lot with the older league.
Since the two teams have been play

number includes the games played last

won three pf the four games played."
"Well, how do the two teams stand
in the number ot games played?" ask
ed the Chief.
, !'Why the Giants have a little the
best of It." said the fan. "As they
have won two more games than the
Pirates have."
The Chief almost ' dropped. "Two
games separating two teams that have
played against each other eince .1887?"
said Meyer. "Why, you're dippy
"Is that so," came back from the
"Let me show you something. You
see this table? Well that is the num
ber of games each haa played and
you can see the Giants have won in
New York J28 games, whil the Pi
rates were satisfied with 104. Seven
pf the games were tie affairs. Now,
on the other hand you see the Pirates
won in this city 122 times while the
Giants have exactly 100 victories to
their credit, while, eix tie games have
been "playeoj" before Pittsburgh fans.
"The New- Yorks visited 'Pittsburgh
in 1887 for the first time, in which
year theyt received the name of the
Giants because of the large stature
of the men composing the team. All
were of six feet or more, except Dan

Zanzibar! It is a name to be sung
by lovely Jporphees to. rag-time music
of comic opera. And the reality is
all that the name suggests, and more.
Today the people of Zanzibar will
celebrate the tenth anniversary of the
accession of Sultan Seyyld Ali, and
the roost picturesque and fascinating
of African East Coast cltieB win be
en fete. True, the paleface Invaders
have pulled the throne from under the
Sultan, and he is now a t monarch in
name only. Once the father of the
youth who now beam the title of
Sultan of Zanzibar ruled, over a vast
territory, Including ' not; only the isl
ands but a wide stretch of mainland.
While the rule of the dusky potentates
b a tale tha Is told, Zanzibar has not
yet lost those fascinating features
that have made the capital unique.
As the tourist .enters the harbor of
the city of Zanzibar, the 'chief entrepot
of East Africa, he sees rising from
the waters a fragment ef at mast.
That piece of wreckage standi for one
of the most heroic episodes in the his
tory of the black race. When a great
British war vessel, came into the har
bor to take possession of the islands,
the navy of His Highness the Sultan
4m T7i-i nVt rfndAWtAW
went blithely forth to meet ft. Tha
"waT" was .tiny , gunboat, mans ,
by a native negro crew, and its arm
ament' consisted of only two or three : '
antiquated guns, , . Yet tha "aTy" .
opehed the battle and fired' away at
the giant cruiser that loomed abor
it until the tiny ' ehip vanished be
neath the waves. That was comio
opera, 3 perhaps, but It certainly proved
that the Sultan's tars were not lack
Ing in reckless bravery; .
Arriving at Zanzibar, the passenger
is sent shore in a email boat, and is
thence carried through the surf on tha
back of. a stalwart native. On the '
beach the visitor to Zanzibar's hespi
table shores is surrounded by a howl
ing mass of natives, eaeb eager to
carry his luggage to the hotel. With
the other passengers English officers, . t
Arabs, Jewish merchants, Sawhilis, j
Parseea, Chinese, East Indians an6i
men of all European nationalities
the tourist ascend the stairs to nar
row street lined with Uttle . shops, :
whose owners clutch at him as lie'
passes, preferring their wares ef sti
ver and ivory and ostrich feathers
and the inevitable post cards. Thre .
s one all-pervading thing about Zaa-'
slbar that can't be reproduced la cota
ic opera, and that; is the smell. Any.
one who has ever whiffed tha edori
of Zanzibar will never quite get them
out of bis nostrils. .
