The Merry tVUow.
Dancing as an art, except in rare
instances, has ceased. What passes
for it is jerky, jumpy and without
grace or refinement. A more or less
rapid, ungainly walk, Bhuffle or run
to music has been quite the accepted
standard for dancing.
Young people seem to enjoy it, be
cause it affords them an opportunity
to move more or less rapidly and have
the companionship of the opposite
sex, but they are blissfully ignorant
of the fact that dancing is an ac
complishment in which every feature
and muscle have their individual re
sponsibility which stiould combine in
making a harmonious whole. Those
who love and admire grace see, how
ever. a promise of better things, for
with the advent of "The Merry
Widow" and the beautiful dancing
which is such a feature in that de
lightful operetta, the entire world
seems to have awakened to the glor
ious possibilities that until now they
had never dreamed of. "The Merry

To make good pictures requres no intimate knowledge
of photography. Because von have not taken pictures does
not uiean that you cannot. As simplified by the Kodak sys
tem the use of a camera and even the finishing of the pic
tures is at the command of the merest beginner.
The difficulties, the intricacies of the old methods have
been done away with. Dark rooms and glass plates and fo
cusing cloths and apothecaries' scales now have no part in
Kodak photography. Simple apparatus, a few simple rules,
plainly told in the instruction book, make the path to photo
graphic success by the Kodak route an easy one. You can
take the pictures you can finish the pictures if you like or
you may leave it to another to "do the rest."
You may not care to become an ''amateur photograph
er." As a hobby photography may not appeal to you, but
you do want pictures of the things that you are interested
in. And you can easily take them. Anybody can Kodfik.

CHARGES AGAINST NORTH
Secretary Nagel Said to. Have De
manded His Resignation.
Washington, D. C., April 26.—Secre
tary Nagel of the department of com
merce and labor is said to have pre
ferred charges with the president
against Director S. N. D. North of the
census bureau, with a demand for his
removal. The alternative is said to
be the resignation of Mr. Nagel from
the cabinet. Neither at the office of
Mr. Nagel nor at the white house could
confirmation or denial that charges
had been filed be had. Director North
declared he was not aware that
charges had been filed until he read
of them in a New York morning news
Charges Said to HaTe Been Made.
In substance, the charges against
the census director, which are alleged
to be in the hands of the president,
That he has so far looked to con
gress for his retention in office as to
make recommendations relative to the
administration of the coming census
contrary to the recommendations of
Secretary Nagel, thereby being guilty
of gross insubordination.
That he has knowingly permitted
loose conduct in his bureau.
The latter charge is declared by the
friends of North today to be "mon
strous," while the first allegation is
said to be the result of testimony giv
en by Mr. North oefore the senate
committee on census as a result of his
long experience in his present office,
which proved contrary to Secretary
.Reported Result of the Inquiry.
declared that Secretary Nagel's
charges were preferred at a recent
cabinet meeting, following a secret in
vestigation of the census bureau. If
such an investigation waB had the fact
that it was "secret" is borne out by
the consternation among Director
North's cloBeBt friends. Secretary
Nagel declined repeatedly today to,
discuss the matter, but when he was
informed that a story had been print
ed about his alleged charges he rush
ed to the white house for a conference
with the president. The president
likewise declined to make any state
ment and it was said disliked the
mere mention of the subject to him.
As the story is being repeated in
Washington today, Director North has
permitted politics and politicians un
due leeway in his bureau. President
Roosevelt, when civil service com
missioner in 1889, discovered condi
tions in the bureau which he vigor
ously opposed unto the end. His veto
of the census bill just before his term
as president expired because civil ser- 1
vice examinations were not provided
for the census office clerks is cited as
proof of this statement.
Nagel Not Sure of Supporr.
Mr. Roosevelt is reported to have
felt that the old spoils system of non
competitive examinations gave the
politicians too great a hold on the bu
reau and its employes. As a result,
congress has before it a new census
bill, eliminating thiB situation, and it
is declared that Secretary Nagel was
not sanguine of Mr. North's sincere

support of the measure. Coming on
the verge of the thirteenth decennial
census, the reports in Washington to
day have caused a sensation.
Statement by Friend of North.
On behalf of Mr. North one of his
closest friends and advisers gave out
the following statement:
"The firot intimation that Director
of the Census North had that any
charges had been filed against him or
even in contemplation was received by
him when he read a story to that ef
fect in a New York morning paper.
The publication containing the charg
es came without any warning. Neither
Mr. North nor any of his fellow offi
cials had the slightest intimation of
affairs in the census bureau.
"Mr. North has been in public office
a good while and his Washington
friends say that the only reason for
making general and somewhat veilei
charges against the chief of the cen
sus bureau is a desire to get him out
of office in ord6r that some one more
congenial in a political and an official
way to the head of the department of
commerce and labor may be named."
North Newspaper Man in '70'».
S. N. D. North first came to Wash
ington as a newspaper correspondent
in the '70's. Later he was part owner
and editor of a newspaper in jits home
city of Utica, N. Y., and for five yeara
he was editor of the Albany (N. Y.)
Express. Later he issued a bulletin
for the Wool Manufacturers' associa
tion and in 1890 prepared a special
report of the eleventh census on wool.
He was appointed on the industrial
commission by President McKinley
and represented the wool association
in the tariff legislation in the early
'90s. When the Dingley bill was
drawn Mr. North served in a special
capacity with the senate committee
on finance, as a result of which
charges were recently preferred by
Frank P. Bennett, a Boston publisher,
alleging that Mr. North represented
the woolen interests behind the closed
doors of the committee room.
A -part of Mr. North's correspond
ence with William Whitman, president
of the National Association of Wool
Manufacturers, since has been pub
lished and the charge made that North
received $5,000 from the wool men
when his work ended. The charges
were aired before the house commit
tee on ways and means last Decem
ber and dropped because that com
mission was placed in the position of
investigating another commission of a
co-ordinate branch of congress.
Mr. North offered to answer the
charges against him, but was not per
mitted to do, it being understood that
Senator Aldrich, chairman of the sen
ate committee on finance, might make
a statement clearing Mr. North. This
statement has not been made yet. Mr.
North is regarded as an excellent
scholar. His present appointment was
made from Massachusetts, and it is
understood that Senators Crane and
Lodge are his political spokesmen.
