BURDETTE DID IT." COLLEGE STUDENTS MYSTIFY THE PROHIBITIONISTS. A Slot Time in a temperance Town—Drank Champagne But Nobody Knew Where It Came From Burdettc, the Guest, Made the Scapegoat. New York Sua. " This discussion about the sale of liquors at the Princeton inn recalls an umusing experience that I had in a strictly temperance college town a dozen or more years ago," said a man at the Univcrsarv Club one night last week. " Amherst was the college, and for several years it had been a pro hibition town. The townspeople made a great effort to enforce the excise law very strictly, and there were times when they accused the college men of not being in sympathy with them. It is quite possible that the accusation had some foundation in fact. There are occasions, as every college man knows, when excise law must not be permitted to obstruct hospitality. " We had a small class society in my senior year, which was composed of several men from each of the regular fraternities, and it made a point of entertaining at supper such distinguished visitors as came to Amherst with the reputation of being good fellows. Bob Burdette, the humorist, was the last guest of the club. Burdette delivered a lecture at Amherst, and our senior society in timated that we should feel ourselves highly honored by his presence at a little supper after the lecture. Bur dette sent back word that the pleasure would be his, and so the supper was ordered at a hotel then very popular with the students. The stewart of the society was ordered to see that a rea sonable amount of champagne should be near at hand in case Burdette or any one else was tempted to drink a glass. He was instructed not to com promise the proprietor of the hotel in any way, because ne was a good fellow, ang a conviction of violating the ex cise law would bring a heavy tine and imprisonment on him. When the supper was served Burdette was on hand and so was the champagne. For obvious reasons the hotel waiters were not asked to serve the wine. When a bottle was called for the man who sat at the head of the table opened the folding doors behind him, stuck his hand through and brought back a bottle. No one knew who had placed it in his hand or where the wine had been purchased, except the member of the society who had acted as the stew ard for this occasion. "It was a pleasant little supper. Burdette told us some stories that were new, and we told him some that he had never heard. Incidentally the champagne disappeared in the way it was intended to go, and every one sup posed that nothing further would be said about it. Burdette left town for the West the next morning, and a week later the men who entertained him were surprised to receive subpenas to appear at the trial of the hotel keeper on the charge of violating the excise law. It developed later that a livery-stable-keeper who had a grudge against the hotel men had given the information on which the complaint was based. We were very much bored about the affair, and it was decided that the hotel-keeper must be pro tected. " When the case was called the first witness summoned was a member of the society who hailed from Chicago. The prosecutor learned from him that a supper had been given at his hotel on the evening mentioned in the complaint to Mr. Burdette. "' Was any wine served?' asked the prosecutor. "'Yes.' '"What was it?' " I looked and tasted very much like champagne.' " ' Where did it come from?' "' Why, from behind the folding doors,' answered the Chicago man, in nocently. "' Who put it there?' " I don't know. Perhaps Mr. Bur dette did.' " Another senior was called, and he couldn't testify definitely about the champagne. "' Who brought it to the hotel? asked the prosecutor. " Perhaps Mr. Burdette did,' was his reply. " Ten more seniors were put on the stand and as each one in turn sug gested that Burdette was the wicked one the smiles in the courtroom broadened and the prosecutor got angry. By persistent questioning he brought out the fact that at least a dozen bottles of champagne had been emptied at this supper and from the evidence a guileless listener might have concluded that Burdette had not "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." only brought the champaigne, but had drunk most of it. Every senior who testified seemed to be anxious to do what he could to clear up the mystery and each one gave his evidence in an ingenuous fashion. There was no possibility of getting Burdettc to testify, and the prosecution tailed to prove its case. The complaint was dismissed. "The story was too good to keep, however, and it went all over the country. Whenever Burdctte was in vited to a supper after a lecture he was asked: 'Did you bring your champagne with you?' It so happened that three years after Burdettc lectured in Kansas City. Half way through his lecture he saw one of the men who had entertained him at Amherst. He told the story of that experience in a pathetic fashion. After the lecture the Amherst man went up and shook hands with him. " ' Why did you make me the scape goat for that excise case?' asked Bur dettc, with an appreciative grin. "' It was because we found, after comparing notes, that every story you told us that night was old,' was the reply. " ' Didn't you know I was a church deacon?' asked Burdctte. "' That simply aggravated the offense and gave point to our retaliation,' said the Amberst man. He told me afterward that Burdette's left eyelid dropped until it lay on his cheek for half a minute, and then the conversa tion was turned. 80 far as I know, BurJette hasn't been back to Amherst since." A MEMORIAL FUND. For the Relief of the Widow of Ilenry George. The sudden death of Henry George, which was directly caused by his self sacrificing exertions in an earnest and unselfish effort to serve the interests of the people, has given rise to a general desire that some memorial subscrip tion should l>c raised, in token of pub lic sympathy and appreciation. This feeling is shared quite as fully by those who differed from Mr. George in his views, as by those who agreed with him. The life of Henry George was de voted absolutely and without reserve to the service of mankind. He not only sought nothing for himself, hut deliberately sacrificed every chance for personal profit, for the sake of the highest good of his fellow men. It was universally recognized that, in standing as a candidate for an impor tant office, his motives were entirely disinterested, without a thought for his own profit or fame. Such lives are so rare as to deserve the fullest recogni tion and the highest honor. No memorial to Henry George could be at once more grateful to him and more satisfactory to all who recognize his worth, than a provision made by public subscription to put his widow in such a position of comfort as she would undoubtedly have enjoyed had her husbaud devoted his genius, and his wonderful power as a writer, to the benefit of his own family, instead of to the benefit of humanity. Therefore, at the request of many friends and ad mirers of Mr. George, the undersigned have consented to act as a committee to receive public subscriptions for a memorial to him. These subscrip tions, to such extent as may be neces sary to secure for Mrs. George a satis factory support for the remainder of her life, will be used solely for that purpose. The surplus beyond that amount will be used in providing such permanent memorial as, in the judg ment of the committee acting for the subscribers, will bo most suitable. WILLIAM L. STRONG, Chairman. The above circular has been re ceived from the Henry George Memor ial Fund Committee, and at the last meeting of the local Single Tax Club, it was decided that the club should proceed to solicit subscriptions for said fund. The club therefore requests thnt all who desire to contribute toward this fund send any amount from five cents and upwards to Mr. A. L. Cal low, Secretary of the club. ROBT. BRIDGES, A. L. CALLOW, President. Secretary. THE young girl out alone in the evening has become very numerous of late in New Zealand cities, and the government has drafted a bill for the appointment of "discreet women" as inspectors, with extensive powers to stop and interrogate the girl who is out at a late hour. They are also authorized to escort her home and see her safely deposited on the parental bosom, or, if the late girl is a very hard case, to take her to an establish ment especially provided and leave her in charge of the matron, pending inquiry. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, JAN. 21, 1898. THEY REJECT THE BIBLE. Peruvian Masons Renounce Use of the Scriptures New York Masons Sever Fraternal Rela tions With Them. Right Worshipful William A. Suth erland, Grand Master Mason of New York State, has issued a general edict directed to masters of all Masonic lodges in the State. He dissolves all relation with the Grand Lodge of Peru, on the ground that the latter body, to use the words of the official documei t, "committed Masonic suicide," and vanished from existence. He says: "I am this day furnished with a printed copy of an edict, issued by Christian Dam, Grand Master, over the certificate of Manuel J. Caccres, as Grand Secretary, wherein the said Christian Dam, as Grand Master of Masons in Peru, recites to those under his jurisdiction that' according to Ca tholicism, the Bible is a sacred book in which the revealed word is deposit ed and as such cannot be freely exam ined and criticised; that the Bible can not be considered as a foundation of scientific knowledge or history, nor as a basis of morality,' and he'docs de cree that on all Masonic altars the Bi ble shall be removed and replaced by the constitution of the order of Free Masonry and that in all our rituals the word " Bible" shall be stricken out and the words " the constitution of the Grand Lodge of Peru" be put in its place.' "The body which was the Grand Lodge of Peru has attempted to accom plish that which is not within the power of any man or body of men to do. In laying violent and profane bands upon a great light in Masonry it has attempted to change the plan and very groundwork of the institu tion. That the Bible is a book con taining sacred truth is one of the fun damental truths of Free Masonry. Howsoever men differ in creed or the ology, all good men are agreed that within the covers of the Bible are found those principles of morality which arc the foundation upon which to build a righteous life." Ex-Mayor Belt, of Spokane, has taken a stand with Senator Teller, (.■en. Weaver and other sensible Silver Republicans and Populists who recog nize the safest and quickest way to financial reform is by means of the Democratic party as it is now organ ized. In a recent interview, Mr. Belt, although a Populist, makes the follow ing sensible suggestions, says the Commoner: "Is is my opinion that all should get in and support the Democratic party. That's what we did do when we voted for Bryan and I don't see why we can't still do so. I wish some wise Populist would tell mo why Populists shouldn't support the Chicago platform. The only fault I found with it was it was too must Populist. As I understand it, the Populist party was organized chiefly on the money question, and when the Democratic party says the same thing, I guess lam a Democrat as well as a Populist. As the Demo" crats have the biggest organization, the biggest party, the biggest house and the biggest fire, I can't see why I shouldn't get in and warm by their fire." The American's 11 Howdy.'' "The salutation, 'How do you do?'" explained a State department linguist to a Star reporter, " is general throughout civilization, though Ameri cans boil it down more than any other nation in their one word ' Howde?' The Frenchman, to express the same idea, has to use, ' How do you carry yourself?' The German says—that is ho uses German words which mean— ' How does it go to you?' Likewise, the Spanish,' Come esta usted?' which means ' How do you stand?' The Chinaman, when he wants to say " How do you do?' uses words which mean,' How do you run along to day?' The Italian is almost in the same fix, while the Arab uses words which mean, 'Do you stand or do well?' The Portuguese says, in his own words, of course,' How's your good health now?' and the Indian goes a step further, and says, 'You look well; do you feel so?' Tho American's ' Howde?' is as expressive as any of the others, as well as the briefest." Salt is a very useful, though hum ble, friend of the housekeeper, if sho would but realize the fact. Damp salt will rub off the discoloration* left in cups by tho sediment of tea and coffee. Salt will set the dyes of black and colored articles, if a little be added to the water in which these are washed. Salt mixed with lemon juice removes the stains of ink, tar, or paint from tho hands.

Brass ornaments may be kept bright by rub bing them occasionally with salt and vinegar. Bait thrown upon the grate will soon put out a fire in the chim ney. Salt, when added in proper pro portions to whitewash, induces tlie lat to adter hero firmly to any surface to which it may be applied. MARRIAGE SCHOOLS. Several Reasons Why German Women Make Good Wives. Finishing schools in England are of doubtful utility. In south Germany, however, writes a London Chronicle correspondent, the institution has been developed on very practical lines. Before admission the girls are sup posed to have been thoroughly well educated. They must know the rudi ments of arithmetic, must have a fair acquaintance with English and Ger man grammar, and must be able to write and speak their own language properly. They come to the school mainly to learn housekeeping. The schools generally number from ten to twenty boarders, each of whom has a separate bedroom. Every morn ing after breakfast the girl has to make her own bed and dust the room. Once or twice a month she is obliged to alter the position of the furniture so that she may know how to arrange things. Evey week she is called upon to take her dresses from the cupboards where they hang and pack tliem in a box with everything else she may re quire for a long visit. This done, the mistress inspects it and points out the many ways in which she may save space. In a school in Baden I visited, only 16 pupils are admitted, and two house maids nnd one cook are kept. At the commencement of the term the girls are informed by the mistress that four of them are required every week to take absolute charge of the house. They have to rise early in the morning and see to the preparation of break fast. When this is finished, they make their beds and tidy their rooms and afterward go around the house te see that the servants have done their work. Then they are told by the mistress what the midday dinner will consist of, and this they have to pre pare, though the cook will supervise what they do in the kitchen, giving hints and preventing waste. One of the four girls will have to sit at the head of the table and serve the soup, carve the poultry or joint and help the sweets. This meal over, those on duty have after a short rest to arrange afternoon tea, which they lay in the drawing room and at which they have to wait upon their compan ions and any visitors who may happen to call. In the evening there is fre quently some music or light recrea tion, where the four girls have to act as hostesses. They finish up their day's work by arranging supper, but are not allowed to retire for the night until they have left the kitchen in perfect order and have seen that the doors and windows all over the house are properly secured. The value of such a training at this cannot be overestimated. The girls leave school quite competent to un dertake the management of a house- They are good cooks and are able to turn their hand to anything without being dependent on the servants. The other girls who have not been so actively engaged in the house are taught sewing and the making and re pairing of their own garments. In the morning they have their studies and in the afternoon generally go for walks. The mistress of the school I visited is well connected and has many visitors. In the winter evenings dances are arranged, and these are en tirely managed by the girls on duty. They see to the preparation of the rooms, engage the musicians, draw up the programmes, etc. This lady told me that 32 of the girls had met their husbands at these dances. "We mistresses," she added, " are said in Germany to be the proprietors of marriage schools. Don't laugh. It is true and the term is not quite in appropriate." IT must be confessed that swearing is altogether too common, both in fic tion and on the stage, says the New York Sun. As it grows less common among well-bred and civilized men it seems to thrive on the lips of the heroes and vidians of novels and plays. It takes an artist, and a great artist, to use profanity and even slang, and the more sparingly he uses it the better will be the effect. There is a so-called realism which is merely repulsive.

THE WORLD'S SUPPLY OF GOLD HAS LARGELY INCREASED- The Product of the Mines of Yel low Metal Has Increased Rft Per Gent., or Over One-half the Amount Extracted From Them for the 378 Previous Years. The latest report of the Director of the Mint on the production of gold and silver shows that there has been a great increase in the recent output of the former precious metal. The director says in substance: The world's production of gold in 1896 was 305,379 kilograms, or 9,817,- 991 ounces fine, of the value, in round numbers, of $203,000,000, as compared with 299,855 kilograms, or 9,041,337 ounces fine, of the value of $199,304,- 000, in 1895, an increase of $3,090,000. This increase of the world's gold output in 1890 over that of 1895 is not as great as was that of 1895 over 1894, which amounted to $18,129,000; nor is it as great as the increase of any re cent year over the preceding one, as will he seen from the following figures: Increase of gold product of 1891 over 1890 $11,801,000 Increase of gold product of 1892 over 1891 1G,C02,000 Increase of gold product of 1893 over 1892 10,843,000 Increase of gold product of 1894 over 1893 23,081,000 Increase of gold product of 1895 over 1894 18,129,000 lacrease of gold product of 1896 over 1895 3,090,000 The world's output of silver in 1896 was, approximately, 5,130,274 kilo grams, or 165,100,887 ounces fine, of the commercial value at the average price during the year of $0,674 per ounce fine of $111,278,000, and the coinage value of $213,463,700 —a de crease as compared with 1895 of 68,- 000 kilograms, or 2,187,842 ounces fine, of the commercial value of 1,- 474,606 and the coining value of $2.- 828,725. While there was a decline in the world's silver output in 1896 over that of 1895, there was an increase in it over that of 1894 of about $500,000 coining value, representing 390,493 ounces fine. The total world production of gold from 1871 to the end of 18%, both years included—that is, from the year in which Germany took the first legis lative measure toward realizing its long-cherished ideal of going over to the gold standard, to the present—was 4,877,228 kilograms, or 156,803,002 ounces fine, of the value of $3,241,405,- 720. The total world production of gold from 1492 to 1871—that is, from the discovery of America to the year in which Germany took the first steps toward the demonetization of its silver —was 8,658,175 kilograms, or 278,360,- 543 ounces fine, of the value of $5,- 754,223,105. From the above figures, it, therefore, appears that the product of the gold mines of the world during the last 26 years was 56 per cent., or over one half, of the amount extracted from them in the 378 years from 1492 to 1871. The total world's production of gold from 1492 to 189(5, or in 404 years, was 13,535,403 kilograms, or 435,163,545 ounces fine. As during the last 26 years the world's production was 4,- 887,228 kilograms, or 157,124,502 ounces fine, it follows that since 1871 the amount of gold put on the market of the world was over 36 per cent, of the total quantity obtained in the 404 years since Columbus landed on the soil of America. During the five years last past—lß92 to 189(5, both inclusive—the value of the gold alone extracted from the mines of the world was $887,725,000, or $29,218,000 more than the value of both metals produced when gold came in such streams from the mines of Australia, California and Russia, that eminent theorists and practical men alike thought that it should be demon etized. During the year 1873, when the standard silver dollar was dropped from the list of coins to be minted in the United States, the production of both gold and silver in all the coun tries of the world was $177,320,000. In 1896 the production of gold alone in all the countries of the world was $203,000,000, or over 114 |>er cent, of the world's product of both metals in 1873. The yield of the world's mines in 1883 was only $95,392,000. In 1896 it was nearly 214 per cent, of what it was 13 years previous. Such an afilux of gold was a thing undreamt of in 1873 or any previous year in the world's history. Nor is there any prospect that the sources of gold now so plentiful and so rich will soon be exhausted. IT is the Klondike climate that makes eggs so hiali there; the hens have to wear sealskin sac<iues. TURKISH COFFEE. How to Make It and How to Brew- Moorish Tea. Instead of Turkish coffee one might almost say Mohammedan coffee, for the method of making it is essentially the same in most Mohammedan coun tries, except that it is the coffee of Greece, also, having become so probably when Greece was under Mohammedan rule. The mill in which the coffee is pul verized is seen sometimes in New York. To the uninitiated it looks like a sec tion of brass pipe. It is a rude appli ance, calling for patience and strong hands. For practical purposes it is better to buy pulverized coffee in small quantities, though it is impossible to get in this way just the flavor of that freshly powdered. The coffee must be fine as flour. Ordinary ground coffee will not answer. Coffee is served in the east in a small cup called "fingan." Under this there is generally a " zarf" of brass filigree work of the sli»[>e and size of an egg cup. The coffee cup has no handle and rests in the " zarf" like an egg. To make coffee the Turk puts cold water enough to fill three or four cups into a brass dipper with a flaring mouth and a long handle. He adds what is to a European an excessive amount of sugar and brings to a boil over a brazier of charcoal. When the water is thoroughly boiling, he adds one cup of coffee for every four or five cups of water. The water instantly rises in a thick brown foam. Just a splash of cold water is thrown in to prevent its going overboard, and the coffee is poured into the cups and drunk immediately. No Turk minds scalding or wishes the grounds to settle. The infusion of the coffee is unneces sary, owing to its powdered condition, and adds what is regarded as an un desirable flavor. Coffee is prepared in extremely small quantities for in dividual serving. It is becoming the fashion with some women to serve this coffee instead of afternoon tea. As prepared in New York the hostess boils the water over a tiny alcohol lamp, adding sugar ac. cording to the taste of her guests or her own discretion. She uses one cup of coffee to about eight quarts of water. There is no chance of failure if the water is boiling vigorously when the coffee is added and if the dash of cold water conies hard 011 its heels. Turkish coffee is disagreeable to some people; others think it the only coffee worth drinking. Tiny Japanese cups and Turkish doilies make a pretty service, especially if one has a ham mered brass tray. Tea as drunk in the harems of Mo rocco is esteemed the best made. To prepare it, pour a pint and a half of vigorously boiling water over a table spooful of tea. Let infuse about three minutes and then strain through a clean napkin into a teapot. Add to the hot tea some sprigs of lemon ver bena. If these cannot be had, add mint. Keep the tea hot enough to infuse the verbena, but do not allow it to boil. Squeeze in some drops of fresh lime juice or in default of this the juice of a fresh lemon. Like Turkish coffee, the tea of the Moors is made very sweet. 11 is served with small sweet cakes. His Cosmopolitan Meal. An American traveling in Palestine describes an interesting dinner he ate recently at a hotel in Jericho. "We sat on the porch of the hotel at Jericho," he wrote, " after dinner at which we were served with butter from Norway, cheese from Switzerland, marmalade from London, wine from Jerusalem diluted with the water from the well of Elisha, raisins from Ramoth Gilead, oranges from Jericho —in no respect inferior to those from Jaffa or the Indian river, Florida— and almonds from the east of the Jordan, smoking Turkish tobacco, which, like the Turkish empire is inferior to its reputation, and a cup of coffee from—the country grocery of Jericho." Miss SADIE WILLIAMS of Chicago, witli great presence of mind and a hat pin, drove off two highwaymen who were attempting to rob the conductor of the motor car on which she was riding. Most of the passengers de serted the brave girl. After the hat tic was over she fainted. Here Jis another pattern for our young ladies. THE folly of prejudice is frequently shown by people who prefer to suffer for years rather than try an advertised remedy. The millions who have no such notions, take Ayer's Sarsaparilla for blood-diseases, and are cured. So much for common sense.
