Besides the Princess Mary, who In the ordinary course of events would have had royal suitors, and Princess Maude of Fife, there aro many young girls of royal birth ready for alliances. The larger number of eligible royal bride grooms are Ueiman. It will be hard for them to find consorts now In other Countries. In Russia the Grand Duke Constantino la twenty-alx, while there are six other grand dukes on the list, most of them very wealthy. Roumanla, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Montenegro have all. eligible princes whose marriages will probably bo the seal of Balkan treaties. . -To. Publish Diaries. Some -doubt has been cast jpon the published extracts from diaries found on German soldiers. It is not generally known that there exists a stipulation la .the- German army service regula tions (clause 73) which recommends that soldiers shall keep diaries. The French government Is about to publish a work consisting of extracts from dlarica found on German soldiers. There aro to be iee-atmll reproductions and explana tory comment. London can boast of a curious assort ment or relics from the battlefields of the west Two very Interesting relics of the bombardment of Rhelma Cathe dral consist of a fragment of stained window glass, obviously very old, and a large silver crucifix on an ebony mount. Private G. Gllbey. who owns them, Intends that these things shall go back to Rhelma Cathedral on the restoration of peace. Souvenirs From Fields. Among Ollbey's other souvenirs are several articles from four or five bat tlefields, Including a rosary and crucifix and . baby's tiny shoe, which were given him by a Belgian mother and In fant .child, whose lives he was Instru mental In saving. Ullbey was mention ed In Sir John French's dispatches and awarded the distinguished conduct med al.. He Is at present In a hospital in liondon. Things In clubland do not Improve, prices are going up, and members are resigning.

At the Con stitutional, the huge conservative cara vansary, the advance 1h about half that amount. The order that no intoxicants may bo sold after 10 p. m. has a lot to do with the trouble. Men do not care to stay late at their clubs and talk over barley water and ginger ale. - Uncle Sam Makes Bread Of Bananas and Chestnuts Banana bread and bread made of soy beans, white beans, cottonseed meal, brsn, and even chestnut flour, is being baked and tested in the experimental laboratories of the Bureau of Chemis try, in' the search for Ore most eco nomical and nutritious bread. The bu reau has also reduced millet, kafnr corn, mllo, dasheens, potatoes, oatmeal, cas sava, buckwheat, rye, and rice to flour and used them In experimental bread making. The breads produced are being anal ysed to determine their nutritive prop erties as compared with those of wheat flour. The soy bean and cottonseed flours when mixed with wheat flours give bread with twice the amount of protein contained in drdlnary wheat flour.

Policeman Kills Man For Refusing to Halt N-TW' TORK. Feb. 22. Because he failed to halt when commanded, a burg lar, still unidentified, was shot and killed today by a mounted policeman. The burglar was fleeing; from the greenhouses of Henry Brockman, and It Is believed hia death solves the mystery of recent losses of large quantities or valuable cutflowcrs from numerous greenhouses.

NEW YORK, Feb. 22. Like a javelin thrust there comes out of the smoke of conflicting ideas on the subject of unemployment and the unemployed a series of definite opinions, backed up by actual facts, from Miss Gertrude Robinson Smith, the chairman of the vaca tion committee of New York. Miss Smith yesterday gave utterance to her views on the un employment situation. "As with everything else," she began, 'Jthere are two sides to unemployment. Everybody has a general idea that conditions are terrible, but there are probably fewdr than a baker's dozen in all this big city who know just how bad they are and what are the chances of their getting better. , GIRLS TIDED OVER. "One swath at least has been cut through the Jungle by war relief ac tivities of the vacation committee. Since October we have been maintain ing workrooms where girls thrown out or employment oy me war nave own kept busy and paid what we call a 'tide-over wage. As Its name would Imply, this pay simply is to help the girls over this crisis until they can get regular Jobs again. "Out of all the other facts we dis covered, as we opened one workroom after another, was the dismal fact that an amaslng number of the girls were horribly Inefficient. "At first we went ahead putting stenographers In the sewing rooms, re gardless of their chosen line of work. They had to do something, .you see. Naturally, the work was hot ddne with the greatest amount of speed or dex terity. Aim For Efficiency. "It dawned on us one day about a month ago, all of a sudden, when sev eral of the vacaton committee were lunching together that It would be doing the greatest possible good to the great est number of people If wo should help the girl who was a stenographer, for Instance, to become a better stenog rapher. If she had learned sewing, w thought, how much more efficient It would be If we could teach her ho.w to sew a stralghter seam than ahe had ever sewed beforo In her life. "We started a class with a member ship of over 160 girls In the clerical de partment, and a dressmaker's section, held In the Manhattan Trade School, with mora than fifty girls. Six teachers, assigned by the board of education from the Julia Richmond High 'School, havo the clerical work In charge. "Miss Florence Marshall, another board of education teacher, has charge of the sewing girls In the Manhattan Trade School. Every day we send more girls to the 3 classes. "We have a special fund for paying these girls while they are getting this extra training. Besides, the technical training they receive, the girls are given kindly little talks by the teachers on office etiquette, on how to dress neatly, on how to fix their hair otherwise than In those hideous sausages so many of them adore, and even on how to keep their Angers and nails looking well. "When these girls emerge from this training, they will be fitted for Jobs bet ter than those they left. "That, as I see ft. Is one side of the unemployment situation which looks mighty cheerful. "But there Is the other side, too. We now employ In our eight workrooms where the girls mako war relief supplies over 400 girls. "Dally dozens and dozens of girls ap ply for work. We haven't room enough for all who come to us. "What Is the point I want to make? Simply this. That In numberless cases It Is the girl's own fault If she has not got a good Job. r "Take the case of Just one manufac turer. He tells us that ho has an order on hand for 6,000,0(0 uniforms for one of the warring countries. His factory Is In New Jersey, less than two hours' Journey from New York. He wants girls to help out on this rush ordor. He is willing to pay them from 112 a week up. "The lamentable fact now comes. We have told our girts about this and urged them to go having the manufacturer's promise to find them good, respectable homes. Do they go"? They do not. They say quite frankly they prefer to stay In New York and run the risk of starvation. Three Girls Quit. "Three girls ventured to take our advice and they went to another Jer sey town, where they were comfort ably housed, well paid and had very fine hours. They came back to New York at the end of the third day. And that's the other side of the unemploy ment question. "Another fund that we have Is call ed the 'meat fund.' It Is used to buy meal tickets In our vacation restaur ant for girls who come to us to tell us thel: troubles and who are so hungry and weak that they actually couldn't tell their stories straight if they wanted to. "If we had resources enough wc could make a great big dent In this unemployment bump, let me tell you." WOMAN BIG FORCE IN CHICAGO PRIMARIES More Than 200,000 Have Regis teredTheir Part in Cam paign Important. CHICAGO, Feb. 2.

She concedes at least one-half of the conversation to tho husband. Her hus badn, George Neal, according to her allegations, has failed to Improve the amount of time allowed htm to talk, and she In now suing for a divorce on the ground of extreme cruelty. According to her complaint, eight words would nearly cover everything her husband said In their elx years of married life. His single statement, usually delivered after Mrs, Neal had done the amount of talking that she thinks a wife rightfully should, was: "1 hope you bite your toneuo oft!"

HOSPITAL IN Ml T OF POLITICAL ROW Factions in Dublin Clash on Question of Converting Noted Castle. DUBLIN, Feb. 22.-A small political and social clique In Dublin is trying to prevent the state apartments of Dublin Castle from being converted into a temporary Red Cross hospital, astutely organized as a counterblast to the na tional movement for the retention of Lord Aberdeen as lord lieutenant until the home rule act has come into force. Dublin being a comparatively poor city, with a large alum population, there Is a constant demand on the hos pital accommodation. Despite this, practically every hospital In the city agreed to set apart ono or two special wards for the treatment of wounded soldiers. These wards, with the con valescent homes available In and near the city, will accommodate BOO men. Although these wards have not yet been fully occupied, stories were circu lated that Dublin was shirking Its duty, so in order to remove any grounds for the charge the city of Dub lin branch of the British Red Cross so ciety, acting fan the suggestion of cer tain leading Dublin physicians, decided to erect a wooden hospital In Phoenix Park for 600 soldiers. Tho Countess of Aberdeen is president of this branch. The unionist women, who are work ing .In the Dublin county branch, de clined to co-operate with the countees -in this work. They said the expense would be too great, and suggested that several vacant buildings In the city could be converted into temporary hos pitals with little outlay. A later charge was that the rooms of the castle (good enough for a royal residence In 1911) are insanitary. Eminent physicians, surgeons, and sanitary experts pronounced the apart ments suitable for a hospital, and the scheme was put before a representative meeting of Dublin citizens, who under took to equip 360 beds at 150 each, and provide the cost of staff and maintain ance. A number of unionists were nomi nated on tho committee of manage ment, but practically all declined to act and since then every effort has been made to wreck tho project, although tho scheme has the approval and finan cial support of the King and Queen and Queen Alexandra.

Conferees on the District bill will meet again today and endeavor to thresh .out the differences between the Senate and House over the bill. The conferees held a session Saturday. Senator Smith of Maryland hopes to be able to make a report In a short time. However, the differences between the Senato and House over the half-and-half question are nowhere near adjust ment. A disagreement on this question probably will bo reported, and then an attempt Is likely to be made to Instruct the conferees to provide for an Investi gation of the flsca relations of the Dis trict and the General Government and a report to Congress next regular ses sion. The conferees have agreed to an Im portant amendment to make the Dis trict Board of Education anawerablo to the Commissioners. The amendment takes from tho District Supreme Court the power of appointing the members of the school board and places the power with the Commissioners. It is believed the Change will be ac cepted by the House and Senate. Strong sentiment developed for It In the House when the bill was under consideration. The late Congressman Payne spoke for It. It was not expected the conferees would take action, however, as the amendment is in the nature of new legislation. "Oft, You Chicken!"

One Divorce to Every Six Marriages in Chicago CHICAGO, Feb. 22. One divorce or sepnrate maintenance suit was filed In tho circuit or superior court for every six marriage licenses issued In Chicago In 1914, according to the first annual report of the bureau of mar riage and divorce statistics. A total of 5,356 suits were fllod dur ing the year as compared with 33,897 marriage licenses issued. "Chicago's record Is almost as bad as Japan's," said County Clerk Sweltz er. "It Is said that in Japan one cou ple out of every five go into the di vorce court. We must have In mind, however, that Chicago is the 'dumping ground' for tho marital troubles of man) persons who are not Chica-goans." Extradition of Van Horn Is Sought by Canada PORTLAND. Me..

SJ.-How a tnanlae. winging a pair of wooden stools, which he snatched up after breaking the straps of a restraining sheet, ran wild through the observation ward of the workhouse In BlackwcH's Island, beat ing down and Injuring half a dozen men, one of them fatally, was told after James Oteason, seventy jeers old, died In the Island hospital. Qleason was struck on the head aa he lay In bed by George B. Cuffe, who tore screaming and cursing through the place, swinging the stools and knocking down everybody who approached. Although Cuffe swept his way through the ward Friday night about :30 o'clock,' no details of it were allowed to get out of the Institution until Qleason died. Then a coroner had to be noti fied, and an investigation was begun im mediately. Friday night Cuffe, In the course of his wanderings about the ward, come upon Qleason sitting dejectedly on the edge of his bed. Cuffe sat down be side the old man and began talking to htm. "I wish I was dead," Qleason was heard to say. . ,' "You wish you were dead?" repeated Cuffe. "Why don't you die?" Fearing that Cuffe would become vio lent, one of the patients called Dr. S. Q. Conger, house physician, who put a re straining jacket on Cuffe, and strapped him to his bed. At 9:30 o'clock the Inmates had re tired, and Cuffe lay silent. Qleason was asleep. A moment later the orderly, Samuel J. Flynn, left the ward to make his rounds. When Flynn left the room Cuffe began squirming about In his restrain ing sheet, straining to break his bonds. .Suddenly the straps snapped, and Cuffe leaped to his feet. He snatched two wooden stools that stood by the foot of his bed, and, swinging them aloft, one In each hand, started for the bed where Qleason lay asleep. The ward was In an uproar. The patients sprang from their beds, and tried to stop Cuffe, but the maniac tote through them with superhuman strength, sweeping them down with the stools. Qleason slept through the noise and excitement, and the first Intimation he had of his fate was when Cuffe, with half a dozen men hanging to his body And trying to pull him down, swung on i of his chairs against the old mar.'s head. Gleason sank back with a moan and Cuffe then turned on the Inmates and guards trying to restrain him. He Injured several before he was finally overpowered.
