I Will Try Boy Conductors London. June IS.—An "elephant and Vhlnoceros congress," In which delegates representing all of the great powers di rectly interested In Africa have partici pated, has finished a week’s sitting at the foreign office, and as a result it Is prob able that effective action will be taken to preserve these animals from extinc tion In Africa. The conference met at the suggestion of W. Woosnam game warden of Bnt i Ish Hast Africa, who pointed out that the \ elephant and rhinoceros were in greater *■ danger of extermination than any other species of big game In Africa. Delegates came from Germany, Belgium, Spain, Franca Italy and Portugal, all of which countries have colonies In the African continent. Although the proceedings of the con ference will not be divulged until the del WWW SORE, TIRED FEE! 10, Girls,” Don’t Have Puffed-Up Burning Sweaty Feet or Corns egates have reported to their home gov- : ernments for ratification of the proposals, it is understood the most important item in the plans of the meeting was the for mation and maintenance of absolute sanc tuaries for the elephant and rhinoceros :n suitable localities. The shooting of these animals would then be permitted only on licenses, the conditions of which would be made as nearly identical as possible In the different territories. Absolute pro tection for the rhinoceros would be given for a number of years and the standard weight for ivory for export would be raised to 22 pounds. The various laws in the different terri tories have not only proven vexatious to the hunter, but have given refuge to the poacher and illicit Ivory dealer. Every year the need for adequate protection i grows more urgent. Both the elephant j and rhinoceros take long to attain ma- i turity and like the American bi9on and elk seem unable to protect themselves from the modern hunter. They breed slowly and the stock is becoming dan gerously reduced. Herds have been wiped j out because of their occasional raids on plantations a course which Selous, the great game hunter, declares unnecessary, for the killing of their leaders would ef fectively frighten away the rest of the herd. But the greatest destruction has been due to ivory hunting in the case of the elephant, and horns, hide and meat in the case of the rhinoceros. Derby Gambling Gambling on the derby—recently won by an American horse—Is believed to have attracted more money this year than ever. The first prize of the Calcutta sweepstake lottery which is the most pop ular method of risking one's money, amounted this year to about $300,000. Ten years ago the Investments in this lottery warranted a prize of only $100,000. The prize as it now stands is probably the largest offered by any reliable form of lottery in existence. The Calcutta Turf club started this lot tery as a mere club affair many years ago, but when the sale of tickets was thrown open to all applicants the invest ments rapidly grew until this year saw them coming from all parts of Europe, all the British colonies and the Orient. The London stock exchange had a sweepstake this year which offered a first prize of $12,500. This also was originally a friendly affair among members, but it has become almost a public business. Members subscribe for batches of tickets and sell them to outsiders at a premium. At par value of $5 the tickets brought five-sixteenths premium this year. Nearly all the London clubs have their derby lotteries. One pound ($5) is the fav orite price for a chance, but In some wealthy clubs there are £5 as well, while in the lesR opulent club houses chances may be taken for $1. Many of the gam blers are men who know nothing about racing, and in some clubs practically every member has a small investment. Even the King’s name is put down at the clubs to which he belongs. The findings of the recent royal com mission on divorce, so tar has both ma jority and minority reports agreed, have been incorporated in a bill Introduced Into Parliament by Lord Gorell, former presi dent of the divorce court. The most radi cal departure is a provision that the sexes shall be on an equality before the divorce court. Under the existing law. a wife must prove both misconduct and cruelty on the part of her husband, while * husband need only to prove misconduct in order to get a divorce. The new clause pro vides that any married person may dis solve marriage upon proving that the other party thereto has committed adul tery. The bill also provides that a judicial separation may be granted on the ground of habitual drunkenness, which includes intoxication by drugs. An ar.noymous jokosmith recently spent several shillings to have bis fling against the militant suffragettes by inserting the following advertisement in the personal or “agony” column of a morning news paper: “Scion of noble family has island for sale.—Wild Scenery and precipitious cliffs, single gun on adjacent mainland would dominate only possible place of disem barkation. Ideal for colonization by suf fragettes. Though advertiser Is conserv ative he would gladly come to bargain terms with present government or high minded philanthropist with country’s weal at heart.” Judges of the criminal courts who have been criticized for playing golf on Sun days have found the excuse that noxious odors and gases of the New Bailey, as the court buildings are called, drive them to get all the fresh air possible In the time they have free from the courts. A century ago the Old Bailey was notorious for its odors. The New Bailey is little improvement. The poor ventilations has caused many a judge's headache and un doubtedly many prisoners have suffered an extra heavy sentence because of judi cial irritation. Boy conductors will be placed on some of the municipal street cars as an ex periment. Much opposition was expected from the union to which the street car men belong, but when It was explained that the boys would only assist the reg ular conductors and that as far as possi ble they would be selected from the fam ilies of street car employes, no protest was raised. It is almost impossible for the conduc tor of a double deck street car to collect fares and watch his stops without neg lecting one or the other and the boy as sistants will be expected to relieve the regular conductor of part of his duties. The boys will be tried out on the Tooley street line, which runs to Greenwich through one of the most thickly populat ed districts of London. The 100th anniversary of the organiza tion of the Marylebone CHcket, club the supreme legislative body of the English national game, is to be celebrated this month at Lord’s, the club’s headquarters in London. The club was founded by Thomas Lord, a well known cricketer of those days, who acquired the grounds at St. John’s Wood, which now bear his name. The first recorded match on the grounds was held In June. 1814. and to cel ebrate this a cricket festival will open on June 22. The first match of the festi val will be between the English cricket 11 which visited South Africa and the team representing the rest of England; while the second match which it Is an ticipated will be attended by Ktng George, will be between the army and the navy. How to Be a War Correspondent Oswald F. Schuette, In Leslie s. Nor is it an easy matter to secure the privilege of a war correspondent with the United States army in the field.
