GENERAL KNOWN AS DANCER
Man Who Is Leading Ital'an Drive
"Upstairs to Vienna" Favorite
Member of Royal Circle.
When the world on this side of the
water reads of General Cadorna's
tlirillinr onward smashing drive
toward "upstairs to Vieuna," as the
Italians express it, no one thinks of
this foremost Italian diplomatist
and soldier as Queen Elena's fp'-"-rite
member of the royal dancing
circle the man to whom her maj
esty most frequently accords her in
frequent honor of extending her
hand for his kiss. General Cadoruu
is accounted the best sixty-seven-year-old
dancer in his country, and
it is whispered that he not infre
quently even at this time, with all
of hi3 martial cares heavy upon him,
indulges in a waltz or a polka as a
half hour's recreation fxom his
steady strides toward that "upstairs
to Vienna," upon which he is bent.

VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD
Experts Seek to Overcome Prejudice
Caused by Comic Paper Jokes
About Welsh Rarebit.
Some long-cherished notions about
food, food values and food effects
have been upset within the last few
months, and the American house
wife, in recent weeks, has learned
more about food than she ever knew
before, says an exchange.
Not long ago most of us were con
rinced that cornmeal dishes were out
of place in summer. We believed
(hey were "heating." The experts
have declared to the contrary. Now
they want us to eat more cheese, and
they assure us that we can partake
of this nourishing food in generous
quantities without any disarrange
ment of the digi'stive tract.
A pound of cheese supplies more
than twice as much energy as a
pound of fowl or of round steak, and
almost twice as much protein as the
.-aine amount of fowl or ham. It is
accordingly a cheajier food than
meats, ami it is palatable and whole
some. We shall be the gainers if we
forget some of the comic paper jokes
about Welsh rarebit and begin to' par
take of the cheese as a real food and
not merely as an appetizer.
REMINDED OF GRANDFATHER.
Justice Pendleton of the New
York supreme court waa examining
applicants for citizenship recently
when a band in the park began play
ing "The Star Spangled Banner."
It was written by Francis Scott Key,
Justice Pendleton's grandfather.
The justice turned his head toward
the window, and the hubbub in the
court ceased. Then the justice rose
to his feet, and the men who were
seeking the right to take the flag as
their own rose with him. Everybody
faced the Hag that was draped on the
courtroom wall. Not a soul moved
until the music ceased. Then the
justice bowed and resumed his scat,
ami the work of making citizens
went on again.

MINERS LONG IN SEHVICE
Some Diggers Have Bserr Working Un
derground for More Than Sixty
Years, the Records Show.
Some interesting facts on longev
ity among coal miners have been
compiled by the anthracite bureau of
information in W ilketbarre. The
recent retirement from active serv
ice of W. D. Owens, superintendent
01 tlie Lackawanna division of the
Lehigh Valley Coal company,- serves
to call attention to the number of
workers who have filled out loi'. ca
reers in the anthracite mines. Owen?
has served as foreman and superin
tendent for 39 years, and, although
he has turned over the active duties
of his position to his successor, is to
remain with the company in an ad
A few weeks ago occurred the
death of John T. Williams of Lans
fotd, a pioneer miner in the Panther
Creek valley. He waa seventy-five
years old, and had spent 67 years as
an employee in the mines, and had
been with the Lehigh Coal and Nav
igation company for 65 years. Dur
ing the last year, because of deaths
in his family, Thomas Parry of Xes
queehoning decided to move from
the anthracite field to make his home
with a relative. The decision to quit
the mines came after a period of
G'i years had elapsed since he first
commenced work in them as a boy.
A long stretch of time marks the
service period of Bobert T. Smiles of
Pittston, who lately resigned his po
sition with the Pennsylvania Coal
company after being continuously
employed for 61 years. Smiles be
gan work as a report boy, and had
filled most of the positions in and
about the mines. For 34 years he
had been continuously employed as
an engineer at one mine. Provi
