Kiit«1 off Junk Shop of VplnaliloTliltitfM -Stranm* Conglomeration of Stiuulor uud Luxury. The palace of the shah of Persia, ac cording to Capt. Donald Stuart, In "The Struggle for Persia," Is an appalling combination of dlnglm >.* and splendor, of squalor and luxury. One of the most interesting rooms Is that filled with the portraits of all the monarch:! of Europe. In the next room is his majesty's writ ing apparatus. Here stands a glob.- nut 1 as may be seen in a school room, except that the continents sre made with gents of different colors, and all the namrs of rivers are marked In diamonds. On the |j walls a painting by an old master is framed next to a highly-colored adver tisement of a dealer In fishhooks. The throne Itself Is a sort of wooden bed, about nine feet by six, the woodwork eovorrd with diamonds, emeralds, rubh 3 and sapphires, somo an Inch long. Tho value of the whole is estimated . roughly at a million pounds. On the floor of tho throne Is a <arpct so thick with pearls that tho texture of the cloth is hardly visible, while a huge vase, set with turquoises and pearls, stands side by side with a cheap urn, 1 such as 1b sometimes seen at county fairs. ll!n Kuna. f Street Boy—Sir, have you lost your >, pocket book? j Gentleman (searching through lii? ,, f pockets)—No, my boy.

It Was Provided by. the Treaty That When Freedom Wit* Declared She Should Stand In Close Trade Delation W ith This Country. WASHINGTON. Nov. 10. — Presi dent Roosevelt's message to congress, convened in extra session, was sent to the house today: To the Senate and House of Representa tives: 1 have convened the congress that it may consider the legislation ner cssary to put into operation the commercial treaty with Cuba which was ratified by the sen ate at its lust session and subsequently by the Cuban government. 1 deem such legis lation demanded not only by our interest, but by oyr honor. We cannot with pro priety abandon the course upon which we have so wisely embarked, when tile ac ceptance of the Platt amendment was re quired from Cuba by the action of the congress of the United States, this gov ernment thereby definitely committed it self to the policy of treating Cuba as oc cupying u unique position as regards this country. It was provided that when the island became n free and independent re public she should stand in such close rela tions with us as in certain reap, cts to come within our system of international policy, and it necessarily followed that shu must also to a certain degree become included within the lines of our economic policy. Situated as Cuba is it would not be possible for this country to permit the strategic abuse of the island by any for It Is for this reason that certain limita tions have been imposed upon her llnan cial pulley and that navul stations have been conceded by her to tho United States. Tho negotiations as to the details of these naval stations tire on the eve of comple tion. They aro so situated as t«> prevent any idea that there is tho intention over to uso them against Cuba or otherwise than for the protection of Cuba from the assaults of foreign foes and for the better safeguarding of American interests in the waters south of us. These interests have been largely in creased by the consequences of the war with Spain and will be still further in creased by the building of the isthmian canal. They are both military and eco nomic. Thu granting to us by Cuba of the naval stations above alluded to is of the utmost importance from a military stand point and is proof of the good faith with which Cuba is treating us. Cuba has made great progress since her independence was established. She has advunced steadily in every way. She already stands nigh among her sister republics of the new world. She is loyally observing her obli gations to us, and shu is entitled to like treatment by us. Tho treaty submitted to you for ap proval secures to the United States eco nomic advantages as great as those given to Cuba. Nut an American interest is sacriilced. liy tho treaty a large Cuban market is secured to our producers, it is a market which lies at our doors, which is already large, which is capable of great expansion and which is especially impor tant to the development of our export trade. It would be indeed shortsighted for us to refuse to take advantage <»t such an opportunity and to force Cuba into making arrangements with other countries to our disadvantage. This reciprocity treaty stands by itself. It is demanded on considerations ol’ broad national policy as well as by our economic interest, it will do harm to no industry, it will benefit many industries. It is in the interest of our people as .. whole, both because of its importance from the broad standpoint of International policy and be cause economically it intimately concerns ua to develop and secure the rich Ci.uan market for our farmers, artisans, mer ctot-ni-it- gutnufaemrors. PUuvdy Jt is. desirable as a guarantee ol the good faith of our nation toward her young s’.ster re public to the south, whose Weiiaxu must ever be closely bound with ours. We gave her liberty, we aro knit to her by the memories of the blood and the courage of our soldiers who fought for her In war, by tho memories of the wisdom and integrity of our administrators who served nor In peace and who started her so well on the difficult path of self government. We must help her onward and upward, and In helping her we shall help ourselves. Thu foregoing considerations caused tno negotiation of tho treaty with Chiba and its rat ill cation by the senate. They now with equal force support the legislation by the congress which by the terms of the treaty is ncceosary to render it operative. A failure to enact such legislation would romo perilously m ar a repudiation of tho pledged faith of th«. nation. I transmit herewith the treaty as amended by the senate and ratified by the Cuban government. THEODORE ROOSHY LLT. White House. Nov. 10, 1903. Gnnboat Sr. 11m For Puerto Plata.

Saved YnanK Lawyer Who Had Stose Fright on First Anponriincc De fore Court of Appeals. i .. — i A noted Justice of the New York court of appeals recently addressed the students of law at Columbia. Among other personal reminiscences the justice told them of his first case, rhe New York World tells the stxjry: I remember, said he, the fir3t case 1 argued before the court of appeals. That is a great time in a young law yer’s career. I worked on that first case with great energy. Night and day I labored, and the night before the trial I walked up and down in the old Delavan house, making my speech aver and over again. The next morn ing, weak from the strain, I entered the courtroom all but worn out. Above me on the bench sat seven judges. All around were lawyers. Then I experi enced what might be termed stage [right, and I could not utter a word. Justice Church suddenly raised his head, smiled and, looking at me with his great, kind eyes, said: "Now sir, will you state your case?” That kindness saved me. But I did not say what I intended. Instead ot the hour’s address, I said: “Your honors, the point is this.” and then 1 went on with my case. In 15 minutes [ had ended, and I had won. For 17 years that act on the pari af Justice Church has been in my memory, and I try to emulate him. Whenever a young lawyer comes into the court of appeals I look up from iny paper and smile encouragement. MEXICO ALERT. I* nolldlRK Port Works on the l’ncific Const and Stretching; Hallways Across tltc Isthmus. Mexico is building port works on her Pacific coast, says the Mexican Herald. Her long frontage on tho world’s greatest ocean gives her an interest, and a great one, in the vast sea stretching between her und Asia. Hallways are now heading for Topo lobampo and Manzanillo. Fleets of jeean steamers are to connect her ports with Manila, Yokohama, Shang hai and Hong-ICong. As in a vision, Baron von Humboldt saw Mexico bo ■omo "the bridge of the world’s com merce,’’ and tho Scotsman Patterson lectured, long ago, that “the isthmus A Tehuantepec •would be the key of he universe,” and now across Teh unit .epee a British contractor of world wide fame is getting a great railway n readiness for interoceanic traffic.

Hrltisli Soldiers Discovered It In Af rica — Hesults of Experiments with Mew Intoxicant. During the South African campaign the British soldiers discovered a new and extraordinary form of intoxication. The ingenious pi lcates found that they could get all tho excitement of a poworful narcotic by eating a cordite charge of cartridges, each of which con tains 60 strands of cordite and ia vwy similar in anneanince to vermicelli. The 13ritl3h Medical Journal gives particulars of this form of intoxication. It 6ays that Maj. Jennings, on learning l.hnt the men had been eating cordite, made experiments himself. On sucking a strand he found It sweet, pleasant and pungent, but It resulted in a headache -which lasted for 36 hours. Dinsolved in tea, it produces almost immediate exhilaration, “inciting al most demoniacal actions,” followed by a heavy sleep and stupor of from five to twelve Hours, according to quantity taken. Added to beer, it produces the worst effects, exciting a quarrelsome and de structive mania and producing the most rapid intoxication.

The empress of Germany, although she is a very handsome woman, la nevertheless inclined to corpulence, eays the New York Journal. Through the indiscretion of one ot the imperial household, it is learned that the emperor wishes her to lace tightly, and that she should go in for riding, walking and other outdoor ex ercises, that she may regain her for mer alim and graceful figure. Not long ago one of her Intimate friends suggested Jo the empress that an empire frock would set off her fine figure to advantage. The empress re plied: "My imperial husband strongly ob jects to my wearing such a dress; his majesty wishes me to have my waist as slim as is compatible with my health.” As she is very much in love with her husband and anxious to please him in every rospect, she Accordingly wear: drcsse3 of the tightest possible pat tern.
