Swimming Is the one outdoor exer cise in which woman frequently ex cels man. The water is her heritage, but only in the last decade has she taken possession, says the New York Evening World. Plump little Rose Pitonof, who covered the distance be tween East Twenty-sixth street, Man hattan, and Coney Island in eight hours and seven minutes, ts one of a growing band of graceful, facile water maidens. By virtue of physical perfection and stamina Annette Kellerman, the lithe Australian girl who essayed the Eng lish channel, is perhaps the header of these. Other noteworthy figures are Elaine Golding, the powerfully built Bath beach champion; Elennora Sears, the Newport soclty girl; Elsie Thiel, winner of many sprints; Adeline Trapp, a Brooklyn teacher who has conquered Hell Gate; Ethel, Vera and Beatrice Due of Fort Hamilton, who have swum the Narrows and done still more difficult feats; Evelyn Howell, the Flushing school girl; Augusta Galtup and Clara Hurst, sur vivors in a race from Brooklyn bridge to Coney Island. Mme. Claire Gut tenstein has competed on even terms with men Parisians In crossing the Seine. Mrs. Lena Brandenburg of St Ixmis swam the five miles from Eads bridge to the Altenheim Just to prove ♦ bat a woman of sixty is not an old woman. Why, other things being equal, do women swim better than men? Be cause their conformation is well adapted for this exercise. Because there Is usually more adipose tissue under the skin, and this protects the body from invading cold. Because, as Doctor Sargent of Harvard says, "women always are and constitution ally ought to be rougher than men.” Origin of the Club. Not infrequently women of wit di rect their shafts against the clubs bo beloved and frequented by mankind. In Ralph Nevlll’s story of '"London Clubs" and their origin and uses are some examples of wit aimed in the opposite direction. The original conception of a London club was a retreat to whch West End men might betake themselves, certain that the troubles and worries of the outside world would not follow' them into a building which they regarded as a temple of dignified seclusion and re pose. Perhaps the best description of a club, as it existed in former days, was that given by a witty bishop, who de fined it as a place "where women ceased from troubling and the weary were at rest.” Another amusing definition was once given by George Augustus Sala. "A club,” said Sala, "is a w'eapon used by savages to keep the white woman at a distance.” —Youth’s Com panion. History Repeated. It was at the Circus Maximus. The Emperor Nero leaned forward, In spite of his embonpoint, and touched one of the emperor’s ladies In waiting on the shoulder. "Pardon me. Aggrippina,” he said, in excellent Latin, "but would you mind taking down your coiffure, so that I can get a look-in on the arena? There’s a massacre today that I’m particularly anxious to see." Her only answer was a sneer of pa trician scorn. Well she knew that Nero bad come In on a press ticket, while an easy Roman suitor had paid real money for her seat A New Point of View. A youngster had been very rude to his mother, and she had turned him over to his father to be disciplined, when the following conversation was overheard: "Ted, did you say so and so to your mother?” "Yea, dad.” “Well, you will have to settle that matter with her, because she is your mother and not mine. But she is my wife, and I will not allow' any man, young or old, to be rude to her. Now you must apologize to me for being rude to my wife, and then you can settle with your mother for being rude to her.” Preparing for the Part. The terrible storm had passed, and the angry waves, after engulfing many a gallant craft, had subsided. The captain of the partially disabled steamship, as land hove in sight, hung a crutch over the starboard bow'. “Merely a bit of stage business," he explained; “all the papers will say to morrow morning that ‘the great oceap liner came limping into port.’ ” Took Him In Earnest. A negro bricklayer in Macon, Ga., wag lying down during the noon hour, sleeping In the hot sun. The clock struck one, the time to pick up his bod again. He rose, stretched, and grumbled: ”1 wish I wuz dald. Tain’ nothin’ but wuk. wuk frum mawnln’ tell night.” Another negro, a story above, heard the complaint and dropped a brick on the grumbler’s head. Dazed, he looked up and said: “De Lawd can' stan’ no jokes. Ho les’ takes ev’ythlng In yearnlst.” An Indirect Economy. “I suppose you find living less ex pensive since you took to gathering your own mushrooms?” "A little." replied Mr. Growcber. “We don’t save anything on the mush rooms, but all our 'Mends have quit .accepting Invitations dinner.” This Is Not a “Dsfy.” Gibbs —Your wife seems tit be a con trary sort of woman. Dibbs —Contrary! Why, whenever 1 ask her to darn my stockings she knit* her brow's. STOLYPIN IS DEAD or ms wouhds Russian Official Passes Away From Assassin’s Bullet. JEWS FLEE; FEAR MASSACRE Thousands Crossing Border for Safe ty— Kiev Under Martial Law— Two Hundred Friends of Lawyer Bogroff Arrested. Kiev. —The Russian premier, Peter A. Stolypin, died from the bul let wounds received at the hands of an assassin named Dimitry Bogroff, a Jewish lawyer, during a gala per formance at the municipal theater last Thursday evening. Almost until the last the premier was conscious, and for half an hour before he passed away his wife alone was at his bed side. With the passing of Russia's "iron man” the emperor laces a situation which all the bewildering under ground resources of the czar are at work to combat. Jews, fearing a massacre more vio lent than any yet. recorded In Russia’s black history, are fleeing from the country in hordes. Hundreds left the province of Kiev immediately upon hearing of the premier s death, and as the news reaches the outlying prov inces thousands of the persecuted peo ple are crossing the borders for safe ty. The utmost excitement prevails In the government centers, where dili gent search is being made for others of the revolutionary band of which Bogroff is believed to be a member. Every known acquaintance of Bog roff has been arrested. More than 200 of his friends, among them many prominent lawyers, are in prison. Bog roff, plunged Into mental delirium by the news of his victim’s death, is fur nishing the police with every detail of the circumstances leading up to his crime., He is said to have revealed the names of other high officials marked for death and extra precau tions are being taken to guard these persons from assassination. Bogroff had maintained an attitude of confi dence up to the time of the premier’s first sinking spell, but when told that M. Stolypln could not live the prison er became despondent and talked frely of his act. Kiev is practically under martial law. Armed Cossacks are patrolling the streets and few of the residents venture out of doors, fearing arrest as suspects. The streets about the sanitarium where the premier died have been closed to all traffic. The secret police are alert to detect the first indication of a revolutionary up rising consequential upon the death of the man whose summary methods caused him to be viciously hated and feared by the terrorists. M. Kokovtseff, the minister of fi nance, who was appointed acting pre mier after M. Stolypin was shot, has sent a peremptory circular to the vari ous governors on the maintenance of order. It is stated on excellent au thority that M. Kokovtseff will be ap pointed premier. Emperor Nicholas left Tchernigov for Kiev. THREE DIE IN BIG STORM. Property Less in and About Chicago Is $300,000. Chicago.—Three deaths, a long list of injured and a property loss of $300,000 were charged against the storm which swept over Chicago and its suburbs. Despite the brilliant electrical dis play which heralded the storm's ap proach, the city was unprepared when it arrived. Sign boards, scaffoldings and awnings were torn loose in all sections, windows were broken, trol ley wires were blown to the ground and the city plunged into darkness. The wind picked up a switch shanty on the Chicago & Northwestern rail road at Canal street and the river and set it down in the river. Jacob Schultz, the occupant, climbed to the roof of the little structure and floated through the wind and rain un til rescued by a crew from the fire de partment in a rowboat. When rescued Schultz was unconscious. MINERS RIOT, TWO ARE SLAIN. Italians Battle at White Row Camp Near Marion, 111.

WILEY EXONERATED BY THE PRESIDENT Taft Has High Praise for Accused Chemist—Hints at Radical Action. Beverly, Mass. President Taft made public here a memorandum which completely vindicates Dr. Har vey W. Wiley, chief of the bureau of chemistry, from the charges pre ferred against that official by a cabal in the department of agriculture and severely condemns persons responsi ble for the trouble to which the pure food expert has been subjected. Mr. Taft declares his purpose to overrule the recommendation of the personnel board of the department and Attorney General W’ickersham that Doctor W’iley be dismissed and concludes with this significant refer ence to the house inquiry into the charges against the chief of the chem istry bureau: "The broader issues raised by the investigation, which have a much weightier relation than this one to the genera] efficiency of the depart ment, may*require much more radical action than the question I have con sidered and decided.” In Lis opinion making it known that the ‘‘condign punishment” for Doctor Wiley, which Mr. W’ickersham held to be necessary, will net be meted out, the president voices no word of criticism for the chemi t, but many a word of praise.

He explains that Mr. Wickersham’s findings in the case were made with less complete data, than were before him when he took it up. CITY HEADS MEET AT CHICAGO.

President Taft began his western trip on the fifty fourth anniversary of his birth. In addition to the president. Secre tary C. D. Hilles, Maj. A. W. Butt, Dr. Thomas L. Rhoades, the president s physician, two stenographers, three secret service men and nine newspa per men accompanied the executive. Two years ago the president start -60 from Beverly on his first cross continent trip after entering the White House. He had been six months in office, and the Payne-Ald rich tariff law had been fiv.7 weeks on the statute books. On that trip he delivered his famous address at Winona, Minn., a defense of that law. on which most of the criticism of the adrnlnistration’s tariff policy has been based. On the list for the present journey the president has set down “The Tariff” and “The Tariff Board" as two subjects for set addresses. His views of the wool bill, the cot ton bill and the farmers’ free list bill have not been set aside for separate speeches, but that they will be dealt with in the two general addresses is highly probable. The tariff may prove after all the leading topic, al though that is not the president’s plan. The ‘swing,” which will end in Washingtcn on November 1, will be about 13,000 miles in length Twenty four states will be visited and in 18 the president will speak. In Kansas. Ne braska, lowa, Missouri, Montana, Idaho, California, Oregon, Washing ton, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin he will spend many of his busiest days. These states are labeled “insurgent” by those who keep the political books. New York, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Illinois and Pennsyl vania will not be slighted, but in those states the president will not have to work so hard. The same political bookkeepers credit them to the “pro gressive” wing of the Republican party. Michigan, which has been called "Taft insurgent,” will get a lot of the president’s attention.
