Served him right. It is said that Adcmral Schley has a very lame arm, the result of hand shaking during his swing around tbe circle. Advertising costs, one way or another. Gov. Durbin has appointed War ren Bigler of Wabash a member of th3 board of-trustees of Easthaven to succeed John V . Macy. lne ap pointment is an excellent one. If the remainder of the winter is not too severe the steel trust will be ab'e to keep the wolf from the door till spring. Its profits the past nine months foot up $34,779,293. Mayor Zimmerman has received a circular letter from tha chairman of the committee on public buildings in tbe house making inquiries as to Richmond's claims for a government building and as toa site for one. The letter simply indicates that this city is possibly considered in the eligible list. It would be well for our public spirited citizens to write our con gressman and senators on the sub ject. The Republican state committee met at Indianapolis yesterday and e'.ected Wm, H. Whittaker secretary by a unanimous vote, and decided to hold the state convention on Wrdnesday and Thursday, April 23 and 24. Wayne county will be enti tled to 34 delegates in the conven tion. A. C. Milliken of New Castle will be continued as private secre tar$.,ioJ;lie chairman of the commit tee, Mr. KSoodricb. The committee is now f ullyorgamzecl and ready for business. , At the annual banquet of the Bal timore Merchants ard Manufactur ers' association last night Lyman J. (rage delivered an address in which he stated that thisgovernment, after its war with Spain, which cost $500, 000,000, had, after paying this enor mous sum, a cash balance on hand of $46,000,000 greater than when the war was inaugurated. He referred to the relative credits of the various governments of the world to show that the United States led all of them. Evidently Uncle Sam can afford to throw bouquets to himself. Our attention has been called to tbe fact that tbe men at work on tie municipal light plant are paid off every Saturday night in a oack room of Kennepobl's saloon. We learn from the superintendent of tbe work that this is so. and that he alone is re possible for the fact. He says th payment of the hands at that place was begun by accident, it be ing convebient, and has continued up to the present time. Tbe ar rangement should and probably will be discontinued. "Lead us cot into temptation" is a prayer the city can not afford to ignore. Senator Fairbanks has introduced a bill which recalls an interesting incident of Indiana war history. It provides that there shall be paid to Mrs. Marv A. Coulson of Sullivan. Ind., from the treasury of the United States the sum of $3,950. Mrs. Cou -son is the widow of Sewell Coulson who was a prominent lawyer during the civil war period. After Milligan, Horsey et al. had been tried for dis loyalty and acquitted the United States officers that had arrested them were sued for false imprisonment. The burden of defending them fell on Lawyer Coulson and he was never paid for his services. His widow is now in very humble circumstances. A Cure For Lumbago W. C. William son, of Amherst, Va., says: "For more than a year I suf fered from lumbago. I finally tried Chamberlain's Pain Balm and it gave me entire relief, which all other remedios had failed to do." Sold by A. G. Luken Jt Co. and W. H. Sud-hoff. AMUSEMENTS. The program to be given in the Musical club next Wednesday even ing will be under the direction of Mrs. Harry Downing, and will be similar to tbe one given by her last ver on the same subject Warner. Mrs Howard Dill will tell the stories of the Niebelungen Ring and Tann hauser, Mrs. Downing playing from the operas. Illustrations will also be given from these operas by stere- opticon. I be music or two scenes from Tannhauser will be given by Cain's orchestra and a chorus of twelve men. Miss Hattersley of Ft. Wayne, Mr. Braffett and Mr." Krone will be tbe soloists. THE ELKS MIKSTRELsJ. The second annual minstrelsy bv the Richmond Elks, at the Gennett last evening, was even better than the performance of a year ago. The boys have gotten used to it, and did everything better. The stage dress ings are prettier and the costumes much improved. We don't wish to cast any reflections on the appear ance of the lower limbs of the E'ks, but honest, the bovs look lots better with them covered than they do with them in tights. They sing better, too. The opening perform wee shows the front seats filled with gentlemen in Lu:s XIV costumes of black vel vet, and those on the raised seats in corresponding suits of divers colors, the entire stage draped from borders to footlights with lace. The effect is very pretty. The end mn are Lew Iliff, Fred Jay, Guy Robie, Harry Morrow, Paul McConlin, Harry Needham and F. S. Anderson. The program of the evening, nicelv pre sented, was as follows: FIRST PART SON'GS. "Adam and Eve" Paul McCalin. "Rich Man, Poor Man" Ben Bar- tel. "Go 'Way Back and Sit Down" Harrv Needham.

That strain of suggestiveness which unfortunately has marked too many of the dramatic productions of late stasuns is conspicuously absent in Mark Twain's delightful work, 'Pudd'nhead Wilson," tbe drama 'izd version of which will be seen in this city at an early date under the direction of Shipman Brothers. The comedy will be presented with an elaborateness of detail never before attempted by any travelling organi zation, and as the roles are in the hands of none but talented artists a rare presentation may well be an ticipated. Mr. William S. Gill will play the title role. He has been in the production si ace tbe initial performance at the Herald Square theatre in New York. and time and a natural talent have qualified bim exceedingly well for the part he has in hand. An excellent company, including Elmer Buff ham, William Colvin, Miss Louise Ripley, and other artists, will also be with tbe Ship man Brothers' production. A dra matic treat is assured all theater goers, and none can afford to miss it. Tbe play is filled with a teeming, heart-interesting action, which ap peals to all classes of people and there should not be a vacant chair from pit to dome on the occasion of 'Pudd'n head V first visit to this city. Tues day, Feb, 4, at the Gennett theater. NEXT FRIDAY". A good beart-interest play that needs no advance booming will be presented at tue Gennett on the evening of the 7th. It is "Human Hearts," a me;odrama with an un oroken record of success for five sea sons. Repetition each year has not injured its charm among the theater going masses. Like an old friend it is alwavs welcome. It is presented this season with a large ad adequate company and special scenery. COMING. Both eye and ear are delighted by the Castle Square production of 'King Dodo." Bright faces, fiae voices, handsome costumes, rich scenery unite to matting an evening at the court of hL? merry majesty one of absolutely undivided enjoy ment. Accouipanied by bis entire retinue, numbering sixty, "King Dodo" will arrive in this city and hold court at the Gennett, Feb 11. No lover of clean, bonest, melodious fun should miss seeing "King Dodo." OPERA SCENERY. Its Prod net inn Require Lata mt Work and I.ota of C Hah na Well. The public little rciilircs that liehind tbe s-e:ies of the t!eiro;t riit.-m jra House is a large uuil most iiniori;iiu factory running in full blaM. There is manufactured all tbe si-cnery. cos lumen, jirojxTties ami mccha nical ef fects used in tbe elabor.-ite prmltietioiiH. Everything has to be most skillfully planned. When a revival of "The Magic Flute" was under consideration ami the exieuse of duiug it on an appropri ate scale was enured out. it was found that the curtain would rise on au ex penditm-e of something like .:.! a i. Have yon ever lieen in a scenic art ist's studio? lie has no easel. Instead, he has a little model, an exact minia ture of the house in which his scenery is to be set up. Here on a reduced scule he prepares models of the scenes whirh his painters tire to project on an enormously enlarged scale upon the canvas which hangs by the paint bridge. V.'Uen he has modeled his scene, he calls in the costumer ami the stage manager. S--nie artist and eostrmrr usually have put their heads together before getting to work and decided up on certain color schemes for the vari ous scenes, but just that very morning the cost unit r may have seen a stunning bit of red which he wauls to introduce into his scheme, and s he tries to jer uade the s.-enic artist to change the coloring a little accordingly. Cosmo politan. Anticipated the Permiaaion. Ministers have many in; cresting and amusing experiences. A local clergyman was engaged In conversation with a number of friends the other day. when each started tell ing stories of weddings he had per formed. Oue of the party had this to offer: Some time ago a great big fellow, roughly dressed, and a wee mite of a young woman came to him. They had no witnesses, and. in fact, did not care to h;'' any. Nevertheless, a brides maid and groomsman were selected from the household, and the ceremony began. They had promised to love and obey and all the rest of the service, when the preacher announced. "Kiss the bride." The bridegroom, on bended knee, hes itated a little, tried to say something and couldn't. "Kiss the bride." said the pastor. "Why. parson. I did. afore I come here at all." replied the bridegroom, whose face had taken tbe color of a June rose. The witnesses burst forth in laugh ter, while the minister had all l? couhl do to retain the serious expression which he ahv;s wore when wedding peopie. I'ulmh News Tribune. Radio Aetlve $nhalanrr. Different solid bodies copper, plati num, lead, giass. was. paper, etc. be come radio active when they are placed in a closed vessel along with one of thn radio active salts of barium or. still better, immersed In a s lution of such a salt. The induced radiation Is of the same character as that of the original salt its rays are deviated in the mag netic field. If a tule containing a gas under low pressure has a current of electricity passed through it. the gas becomes luminous when the pressure Is low enough, as is well known. Air at 33 millimeters pressure liecomes lu minous when so treated, for example When a radio active substance is held near to such a tule. tbe luminosity be gins at a higher pressure, which for air is 44 millimeters. The color of the light varies in the two cases. Xataral Featala Pea. "All woodsmen know, says Paul Martin in I-a Vie Seientiflque.

EICH KETTJE53 TOE THE PAKTJTEE 3I 1 Private Firm Cleared fl7.0O0.000 1 Last Tear Beyond Galas mm a I nit- ! ed Slain Steel lademrlter Senior! Partner's Snare Alone Intonated j to 73 Per Ceat of Carninua. j t On one of the news slips that ar left j intermittently during the day at almost all of the oCices of hankers and broker. In New York there appeared tbe other afternoon a paragraph substantially as follows, writes Holland, the 'regular correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, under the date of Jan. J3: "It is the understanding that one New York banking house earned during the year l'JUl profits aggregating $17.tH0.00U ex elusive of the profit that may come to this banking house as a member of the United States Steel Financial Cnder writing syndicate. This little paragraph is an echo of a report which is quite generally believed to be accurate and which has been in circulation in the Wall street district for some ten days or two weeks. The only difference between the nuprinted rumor and tbe brief uews paragraph circulated the other day Is that the re port that circulated from mouth to mouth was more definite as to figures and as to tbe Identity of tbe banking bouse which compassed this unparal leled achievement. The earlier rKrt put tbe figure rep resenting the profits at $17,000,000 and mentioned tbe name of the banking house which bad experienced this un paralleled good fortune. Tbe printed slip did no more than to hint at the partnership name of this banking com pany. Yet every oue associated the re port with tbe pre-eminently active and organizing banking institution in New York city, whose chief and junior part ners have had conspicuous part in vari ous organizations and reorganizations in the past ten or twelve years. Tbe exclusion of the earnings of the United States Steel Underwriting syn dicate from this estimate is probably due to the fact that, while this syndi cate has lK"en practically liquidated, the po I disbanded and probably a lar ger irt if not all of the profits have been received, nevertheless tbe syndi cate lias not been formally disbanded and its affairs permanently closed. Of course, tbe report has been the; main subject of discussion and of com- j parison with other great achievements in the way of rich earnings all through the financial district. It is said that these figures represent a reasonable In come ujmmi a capitalization of $.'500,000. 000. so that, looking at the matter from fhis point of view, this banking lnstitu- Iion stands relatively second to the "nited States Steel corporation itself, at least so far as capitalization Is con cerned, if the partnership were to be capita lizt-d upon the basis of C per cent return. The report asserts that of these co lossal earnings the senior partner re ceived 75 per cent, one of his associates one-seventeenth, or in round numbers $1,000,000. and among the other associ ates or jnrflor partners $3,000,000 is to lf divided, making for each of them In the neighlorhood of $5(0.noo as their return for the year's business. JOCKO USED TOOTHBRUSH. How Animal Knew of Porpoae of Ar ticle Partially Explained. In a spirit of abandon David C. Walker, custodian of Lord's park. In Elgin. Ill- threw an old toothbrush in to the monkey cage at the park tbe other afternoon. His astonishment be came amazement when ou visiting the monkey cage he discovered the entire family of monkeys gathered around Jocko, the largest monkey iu the cage, who was in the act of vigorously ap plying tbe almost hairless brush to his irregular teeth and red gums to the amusement of the entire monkey p pn-1 lation. who chattered and gesticulated in a wild manner as Walker approach-1 ed. Custodian Walker said that the as pect of the monkey brushing its teeth was the most remarkable that has ever been brought to his notice in his long service as animal keeper and custodian of the park. He Is at a loss to account for the monkey's apparent knowledge of the usage to which a brush of this kind is ordinarily put. says the Chicago Inter Ocean, but offers the suggestion that the little animal might hart wit nessed an operation in which a tooth brush is used on one of bis visits to the borne of the custodians at the park.

"I'm from Euglaud." said tbe man on tbe car platform, addressing no body in particular and apropos of noth ing, "and I want to tell you people that we all are only a lot of rooks. Say. did you er watch a colony of rooka build their nests in the spring?" Everybody looked reflectively away. "Well. I'll tell you. First a rook picks up a stick and puts it In a-'s nest, then goes away after another one. When he's gone, another rook flies to his nest and steals the 6tick. When he gets back, he puts down the second stick for still another rook to steal and starts after the first stick. He doesn't find it. and when he gets back to his nest be finds the second stick gone, and he starts after that, scolding and swearing in rook fashion. "Fy this time the other thieves have been robled. too. and it only takes about three sticks to go around the community and get the whole blamed colony powwowing. Say. ain't that human nature?" Everybody looked reflectively away. New York Press. Ple Ansela on a Needle Polat. It Is related of the late rr. Robert son that on one occasion he was in the coin pa ny of . some theological stu dents. They, fresh from the study of church history, were laughing together over tbe old scholastic question. How many angels are supjorted on the point of a needle? They were surpris ed when Dr. Robertson turned to them and said. "Well, how many do you think?" As no one answered he went on, with decision, "Well. I'll tell you five." And be Justified his answer with the following story: One very stormy night be was com ing home late and noticed a light in the window of a room where he knew a poor woman lived whose husband wai at sea. lie wondered what kept her up so late and went to see. He found her hard at work sewing by her lamp, while her five rosy children were sound asleep beside her. "There." said Dr. Robertson, "was a needle supportinp five angels. A Tralalaar Incident.
