PARISANXIOUS TO KNOW WHAT.
TobOWlTH CAMBODIAN MINO
The cut to the left shows King 8I10
warth of Cambodia In full state uniform,
The out to the right shows His Majesty
In civilian dress,
Food Strewn Over Floors and
Rare Furniture Was Utterly
Ruined.
IGNORES MANY ENGAGEMENTS
Visit Has Already Cost in the
Neighborhood of $100,000.
People Rebel. '
PAP.IB, July 16.?The orgies and un?
cleanly Oriental habits of Slsowath, King
of Cambodia, and his staff have shocked
oven frivolous Paris.
After the King and his suite - arrived
no European was allowed to'enter tho
apartments reserved for their use until
they went ' to Nancy for the grand re?
view, when It was found that-the rieft
furniture, which was originally placed In
the?? apartment for the uso .of the Czar
ot Russia on lila visit, had been utterly
ruined.
Floors Unswept.
The King.and his followers had eaten;
raw tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, fruits
of all sortB,.and thrown tho Bklns; seeds
and leavings of their meals on the lloor'
which had not been swept for /.weeks?
mobster shells wero, scattered about? and
thrown under beds and chairs.
The Cambodian taste demands that fish
shall .be decidedly gamjv and whenever
tue King or any of his sulto had all he
wanted to eat of a fish. It-was tho cus
.totnto Idly tosB It Into a corner.of the
room In which they had eaten It, where
it remained.
Choice Sevres porcelain'was stacked In
plloB, unwashed, In.a corner.of tho din?
ing-room, and it Is estimated. that the
damage from breakage nlone will amount
to thousands .of dollars. '
. The Cambodians prefer to cat with
their fingers off ' the tops of tables and
other furniture to using tho china or
' silver.
Some of the costly carpets were ruined
by 'tho King and his suite throwing un?
used food on them. Others were rendered
unfit for further use by the Cambodians
chewing betel nuts, and ?pitting on them.
No Respecters.
These people were no respecters of
anything; and treated the furniture used
by Napoleon as carelessly as they did
everything- else.
Tho Shah of Persia was a model of
propriety In comparison with King Slso?
wath.
Opium played a large part in tho
practically continuous orgies which
took place at the royal apartments.
The royal staff of attendants was re?
cently reinforced by a bevy of. Bacreil
dancers,,and all lived together.
One night recently the. King, through
a low-caste ParVsIan lmpressarl?/ called
In an improvised ballet, ' Although the
ballet 'consisted of low-grade performers
they all left the royal apartments with?
in five minutes after, entering, sickened
at the sights they saw.
While the King and his Biilte -use opium,
they have taken'a great liking to cigars,
and tho King's bill for these alone In
ono night amounted to $50.
Even a four-year-old princess struts
about tho corridors adjacent to the royal
apartments with a big, thick,'green cigar
between her teeth.'
The unorderly life of the King caused
him to Ignoro his official engagements.
H? can nevor bo counted upon, for oven
state functions. On the morning he was
to leave for Nancy to. attend tho grand
review In his honor, he refused to get
out of bed. He said he wasn't going to
the review and would not budge, .
Minister Intervened.
The Colonial Minister was obliged to
send word by a trooper Hint. If he did
not get ready to start within a few min?
utes he would bo sent back to Cambodia,
bag anil baggage, and would not.be
permitted to wear In his own country tho
now sous-prefeot's uniform,- for which
the King had only obtained.? permission
that day. , .
The King was also told that In,addi?
tion to all theso things his: pension from
the French government would bo. ma?
terially out down.
The King's visit has cost In the neigh?
borhood of ?100,000, and already there is
a decided feollng among serlbus-mlndeu
lieople against loading up the Indo-Chi?
nese bud?ot,. alroadj crushing the poor
natives, merely to gratify Slsowath and
amuse Parisians, with a reminder ot the
"Arabian Nights,"

The Chew that's Sweet and Clean
No wonder SCHNAPPS is popularas th? chewing
tobacco that suits the man who chews to^et enjoy?
ment from the tobacco, instead of the mere habit of
, chewing and expectorating. ')
SCHNAPPS is made from choice selections of the
well matured, thoroughly cured Piedmont ?eafi
with an aroma so delightful and appetizing that
it popularized the chewing of tobacco. There's
no other tobacco in the world that requires and
takes so little
sweetening.
That's what makes the difference between
SCHNAPPS and the many excessively sweetened
Imitations?and it's such a difference that once a
chewer chews SCHNAPPS, he is never deceived
with any imitation.
The sweet, tasty and exhilarating quality o?
SCHNAPPS tobacco has made the Reynolds factory
famous as the manufacturers of the best and most
popular brands of chewing tobacco, and as the largest
: and liest equipped, flat plug factories in the world.
They contain every modern appliance for producing
the best che wing, tobacco, by clean* sanitary and
healthful processes. The R. J. Reynolds Tobacco
Company is under the direction of the same men
who have managed it since 1875, and who have
made the chewing tobacco business a life-study.

Mayor Suggests Site for Erection
of'New Post

LOCATE IT PN TENTH STftEET
Plan Also ? Comprises Pulling
Down':' Statibn-House and
Erecting New City Hall.
Manchester- Bureau,''' Tlrrres-Dispatoh. ;
',.-.).[.. ?-; - f.' No.'1112-Hull" Street.
There Is much talk at present In Man?
chester over the site to be selected for
-the new post?nico, .for whlah the 'recent
-Congress appropriated $60,000, not moro
than one-fifth of which is to be ex-'.
;pended in purchasing the site. Several
ideas and propositions have been' sug?
gested by various citizens and' thought
over by the public mind; but the one
which now has uppermost sway^ and
which seems.to be very plausible and rea?
sonable. Is that which Is .said; to'have
been advanced by Mayor.Maurice, 'This
Is that the city sell'to the United States
government about eighty feet of the
property on which the fire department
and courthouse now stand and hayo tho
postoffice erected thereon. But the scheme
goes further.
Mayor Maurice suggests that the present
police station be torn down and In lu
placo a new city hall, ono moro worthy
of the city than the present ... Council
chamber over the .engine house, be erect?
ed. It Is pointed out'that the selling price '
of the other property?about 112,000?could1
be used-'for-a building fund and that It
wouldl-'go-'far1'toward 'paying the greater
part i of'the expense* for the. building.
Buildings Inadequate.
The plan Is' far-reaching arid radical,
though to even the more conservatlv-j
mind it would not appear -without Us ad?
vantages. In Its support'.It is pointed but
that the Council chamber now used Is
fM.r too Inad?quate, and Its structure and
location far too undignified for the-pur
poses of conducting tho affairs of the
Council and cfty, and that In Its stead
a^building moro In-keeping with the Im?
portance-and size of, the city, more dlgnl-.
fled In structure and more imposing and
worthy, should" bo- erected,
- In.the new building, which would.be
the, city hall, could bo placed the Council
chambers,' police department and fire
department, In place of the present build?
ings, which, In whatever manner looked
at, cannot show anything worthy of the
names they boar or the departments they I
accommodate.
Mayor Maurice's scheme has much In
it to he recommended, and It Is oxcHI .g
a deal of favorable comment among the
business and moro Influential people of
Mnnehestor, It Is being gonornlly noted,
and It Is more than likely thnt It will in
taken iip and dlscu88od,.wlth, perhaps, a
favorable outcome,by the committee ,ip?
pointed by the Council, to look Into tho
matter of rocommendlng a site to be used
for tho postofflco.
