Proof of Bravery. If any person living has the shadow of a doubt of Marconi's being a cour ageous, even a daring man, let that person take note of the fact that the Inventor made these statements sit ting In the midst of and entirely sur rounded by women and girls, femi nize pupils at Hunter College and the Marconi school In the art of sending messages on air waves. There were thirty of them, chap eroned by Mrs. Herbert Sumner Owens, and they had called on Slgnor Marconi In his suite at the Rltz Carl ton to hear the truth about women and the wireless. They got it And It was, on the whole, agreeable, though not entirely definite in its bearing on the Important question of whether the 125 radio pupils at Hunter and the Marconi school will get good jobs when they finish train Ing. But they learned that Slgnor Marconi considers women more sstls factory telephone operators than men. because their ears are keener and their voices pleasanter, and he hates to phone after 10 o'clock at night, at which hour the masculine Invasion of the switchboard occurs. Fesalnlatle Leaning. In fact, he seems to have rather a feministic leaning. He was going to bar the press of New York from the Interview until he was Informed that the reporters who waited at the gate were all women. Then he smiled re lentlngly &nd said, "Let them come In." Immaculately attired In a snow white uniform was Slgnor Marconi, with some Imposing decorations, which he had plenty of time to ad just after Mrs. Owens and ber young charges were announced, because she had considerable difficulty arranging the procession that paraded from the elevator on the eleventh floor to the Marconi suite. First she placed them two by two, and then up came Mrs. Ella Haggln, who claimed some au thority on the ground that her nephew Js a wireless man and she knows Marconi, and Mrs. Haggln said the arrangement must be changed. The Ideal "Have them three by three," she said. "It will be much more Impos ing. And good gracious, the Idea of not putting the uniforms In the front row!" For some of the girls were In khaki uniforms with nifty little caps and some just In street clothes. Everybody saw the Justice of Mrs. Haggin's critlcLim and the pretty brunette In plirJ. voile and the blue eyed girl In embroidered taffeta who thought they were to have the glory of leading the charge on Marconi were yanked from their places and three efficient looking young things In khaki were placed In the van. "Now one, two. three, march!" cried the leader of the First Feminine Wireless Brigade, and In this order they marched upon Marconi and soon he was seated In their midst listening with a sort of Inscrutable smile to Mrs. Owens telling him how she had foreseen the war long ago and how. because of her daughter. Miss Ellse Owens, wanting to study wireless, she had organized those classes at Hunter College and the Marconi school and how they used to be affiliated with the National League for Women's Service but left that and are now with the Na tional Amateur Wireless Association. And other things like that. Reconciled Anyway, Marconi appeared not exactly en thusiastic, but reconciled, especially after Mrs. Owens told him she was so sorry she had had such short notice of the interview, as. If she had known the day before, she could have brought the whole class of US. "What, here? What would we have done with them" Inquired Marconi, and appeared to think that everything haa Its compensations. It was when the inventor was begin ning to feel more at ease, even noticing the uniforms, feeling the khaki be tween his Angers and remarking ap- Real Estate Loans No Commissions Charged you can taice 12 years to pay off your loan with out the expense of renew ing. $1,000 for S10 per month, including interest and principal, half of which is applied to re duction of debt Larger or smaller loans at pro portional rates.

The Last Straw, "Photographers are waiting down stairs." said a timid male voice on the outskirts. Marconi threw up his hands and his excitable Italian secretary, who had been sorely tried before by a belated sob sister drifting In In the middle of things, exploded right there. "But you must realise that Slgnor Marconi Is a very busy man," he cried. "How many photographers? Seven? But It Is terrible! It would take a month." "They will take the picture all at once." pleaded the timid male voice. "And It will go all over the country." "Am I to be taken with the ladles?" asked Marconi resignedly.

Chinese Emperor Must Wed Twice and Rear Two Families If the new Emperor of China, H suan Tun, retains the throne unto he becomes of age he will be required under an eld custom to marry two wives and rear two families, according to the New York Tribune. The necessity of his double marriage arises from the fact that he was made the adopted son of two Emperors of China. There was a famous feud between the late Emperor of China and the late Empress Dowager. In 1S98 the Empress Dowager had the Emperor cast into prison, where he was held, under Imperial auspices, until released In 1900. In 1902 the feud-was well on the way to healing, and, as the Emperor was without an heir, a marriage was arranged be tween the Emperor's brother and a daughter of General Jung-Lu, one of the Dowager's principal supporters. Adopted Twice. The marriage took place In 1905. The marriage settlement provided that If a son should be born to the union he should ascend to the throne on his becoming of age. In 1903 Pu Yl, known as Hsuan Tung, was born, and another provision of the mar riage contract was carried out, that the son should become the adopted son of the Emperor Kuaog-Hsu and also of the preceding Emperor, Tung Chlh, who died In 1878. That fact will require him to take two wives upon becoming of age. The troubles brought upon the country as a consequence of the 'acts of the court under the Influence of the Empress Dowager presented an opportunity for the progressive ele ments of the nation, led by persons who bad Imbibed the spirit of Occi dental Institutions through being educated Jn America and Europe, to set their forces to work providing for the time when they might over throw the monarchy. Powerful Supporters. The main event awaited was the death of the Empress Dowager, who during her lifetime was surrounded by a powerful group of supporters and who wielded the military power of the nation. One day In 1908 the Empress Dow ager was taken very 111. A eunuch came running suddenly into the pal ace and announced to the Emperor the death of the "Old Buddha." as she was called In derision in imperial circles. The Emperor Immediately sat down and wrote a decree ordering the execution of Yuan Shlh-kaL Directly afterward, however, the ennuch returned, saying the dow ager was still alive. The Emperor thereupon stuck the decree ordering the execution of the future President of China in his The Fifth of A Series of Talks With Washington's Foremost Printers By A. M. CURRY With A. M. Curry & Co., Printers The printinfT art and it is truly so termed has been called the "art preservative of all arts." The power of the printed- word awakened the world from the lethargy of the Dark and Middle Ages and haa been a major factor in the establishment of civili zation. A mighty power stands behind the printrrifr press. It fosters education and spreads the light of knowledge. Applied to the needs of your business, printer's ink will blaze the path to success, if properly applied. Your letter-head, your catalog, or other printed matter is the mirror which reflects your business. If they appear cheap, so will appear your business in the eyes of your prospective customer. That is why you cannot afford to Intrust such an important matter to the tyro or to the printer who has not the best interests of his art at heart. Speaking of Washington printers in general, he ideals of the art have become standardized. Many thousands of dollars have been expended in modern equipment, bringing the several plants to the highest state of efficiency. They employ only expert workmen men who take pride in their calling and who concentrate on the sole idea of giving you the best work of which they are capable. Weigh these facts seriously give them the most careful con sideration. Can you afford, and can your business afford, to save a few pennies or a few dollars at the most, by sending your work to out-of-town printers, at the expense of quality and result-getting efficiency?

Tn the autumn of 1911 were held the annual military maneuvers of ths army. The Imperial guard at Peking was called out by 'the regent to the parade grounds outside the capital and the commander was presented with a new standard. The man who received the flag from the prince regent stumbled and fell, the flag trailed in the dust, end the people declared it was a bad omen. The next night the viceroy at Wuchang, a short distance from Hankow, arrested two of the supposed leaders, and on the night of the 9th the prince regent at Peking, In the name of the Emperor, bestowed the yellow 'jacket on the viceroy, which reached him on the 10th.
