POLITE BURGLAR EXCUSES HIMSELF INVADES HOME OF PASADENA MINISTER Mrs, Henry T. Btaats Answers Knock at Her Bedroom Door and Finds Intruder Seeking Admittance Paaadena Agenoy, 114 East Colorado Street PASADENA,, Oct. 18.— A very polite burglar visited the residence of Rev. Henry T. Staats. 477 North Raymond avenua, this afternoon and after ran sacking the first floor and visiting the second floor was frightened away by the owner of the house and escaped by the way he came. It was about 3 p. m. and Rev. and Mrs. Staats were upstairs preparing to make a call upon friends. The burglar pried open a rear window and entered the bouse. In one room he found a Btickpin and then tiptoed upstairs. Down the hall he went to the room In which the owner of the house was dressing. Mr. Burglar was not at all certain that the room was empty, so he gently knocked at the door. Mrs. Staats went to the door and partly opened It. The sight of a stranger In the gloomy hallway frightened her and she screamed "Burglar." The man bowed low, and with a mur mured "excuse me," turned and ran tor the stairs. Rev. Mr. Staats pursued him and caught another glimpse of him as be cllrabed out of the window and darted away. Peabody Case Settled There will be no contest over the will left by the late Miss Helen Peabody. The announcement Is made this even- Ing that an amicable settlement has been reached by the contesting heirs and the Presbyterian societies, sole beneficiaries of the will, by which the religious bodies recognize the Impossi bility, under the state law as it now stands, of more than one-third of the property left by Miss Peabody going to charity. This means that about $6000 will go Into the treasury of the missionary societies of the Presbyterian church and about $12,000 will be divided among the twenty-four nieces and nephews ;who are the legal heirs. There seems to be no objection among them to the residence property on Bouth Euclid avenue, this city, being considered the share of the missionary societies, but as the present agreement •will not leave anything with which to maintain the "House of Rest" there as designed by Miss Peabody, it is likely that the money will be accepted by the societies instead. Thus Miss Peubody's great desire to found a home for Indigent missionaries comes to nothing because of the threat ened contest over her will. Coursing Must Stop Coursing at Arcadia must stop. The Humane society announced today that it Is ready to proceed to arrest and prosecute the men who are responsible for the sport at the coursing park.

PROBLEMS IN HAWAII Increase of the Japanese Population Threatens the Future of the Islands Atherton Brownell in Public Opinion writes aa follows of one of the "Prob lems of Hawaii": It is almost a unique situation that a country having the possibility of great Industries has not the popula tion to furnish ths necessary labor.. In Porto Rico we have the opposite, situation— 3ooo square miles of terri tory with over 1.000,000 Inhabitants. In Hawaii, with 6500 square miles, we have but 150,000. In the Philippines there are both territory and inhabit ants, the territory undeveloped and the people unacquainted with the rewards from labor. In Hawaii, with all of its possibili ties for development-, the one Interest that has not been neglected, that has been nurtured and fostered and made to grow to its fullest extent Is that of sugar, and as a result practically all of the large business Interests of the 150,000 people are In the hands of 6000 whites, of whom perhaps 100 control three-quarters of the great wealth of the islands. .. .V-ftstJ •With the native Hawaiian race fasti dying out, It has been necessary to look elsewhere for the labor with, which to cultivate the cane. Work In the cane fields, among the tall growth. In a humid climate, shut out from light and air, is not such as to attract white men. Directly in the path of Immigra tion from the orient Hawaii has, there fore, been compelled to seek Asiatic labor. The Chinese coolies are prohib ited under the Chinese exclusion laws, so that, save for what remains of the earlier Chinese Immigrants, Hawaii is at the mercy of Japan for Its labor. The direct result of this Is that the Japanese are now one-half of the pop ulation of Hawaii numerically, and more than one-half In effective work ing strength, a position in which they feel so secure that here the yellow peril is very real and is indicated in a domineering and dictatorial bear ing. The danger to Hawaii, and Inci dentally to the whole country from this situation, is not to be overlooked. What is required and desired is . the Americanization of Hawaii, whereas It Is being Japanned — If the word may be so used. DECLINE IN THE BIRTH RATE Proportion of Children to Adults Has Decreased One. Fourth Some Interesting facts concerning the proportion of children In the United States have recently been given out through the census bureau. At the beginning of the nineteenth century. It uppears, the number of children under ten years of age constituted one third of the population; at the end of the century the proportion had de clined to less than one-fourth. The decrease in this proportion began aa early as the decade 1810 to 1820, and continued uninterruptedly, though at varying rates, In each successive de cade. This of Itself, however, is not enough to prove a declining birth rate, as the decrease in the proportion of children In the total population may In dicate merely an Increase In the aver age duration of life and the conse quent survival of a larger number of adults. But by taking the proportion of chil dren to women of child-bearing age we are able to get a more satisfactory index of the movement of the birth rate. Between 1850 and 1860, the earli est decade for which figures can be ob tained, this proportion increased. But since 1860- it has decreased without. In terruption. The decrease has been very unequal from decade to decade, but if twenty-year periods are considered, it has been very regular. In 1860 the number of children un der 5 years of age to 1000 women 15 to 49 years of ago was 634; In 1900 it was only 474. In other words, the propor tion of children to potential mothers in 1900 was only three-fourths as large as in 1860. ... I One is thus led to the conclusion that there' has been a persistent decline in the birth rate since 1860. BARGAIN PRICES What the Little Bird Overheard While Keeping Quiet The following seasonable dialogue has been reported by the teeny little fllliloo bird with the eavesdropping and rub bering habit: Her— And you figuring that I'll need a new coat this year? I don't believe you have given the matter a thought. And this Is just the time to buy furs. They're juot giving them away at this season. This afternoon I saw the cutest seal Jacket, wtlh high collar and big reveres, and it was only $175. And— Him— Gittout, is that so? Well, on my way home this evening I saw the loveliest melton cloth close-weaved split-tail autumn overcoat, and the price tagged to it showed that they were Just chucking It away. It was only $95. However, I flagged It. Her— That's It; try to turn everything I ask you Into what you consider a joke. Now, didn't you Just as much as tell me, when you bought me that common old coat lor $37 last winter that you'd be sure to get me a seal jacket this year? Him— Well, 'l may have been smoking a little last year, at that. I promised myself a whole lot o' things at the same time, but they still look to be about as far away as one-sixteenth of a grain of strychnine on the White Lot gazed at with the naked eye from the top of the Washington monument. Her— Now, wait a minute. Look at me. You don't expect me to wear that common old $37 coat again this win ter, do you? Him— l haven't got any expects com ing, except that I sure expect to Ink up that old ulster of mine again and swash around In it when the raw weather drifts around. Her — Mrs. Kergrab, whose husband gets only sixteen hundred, Is going to have a seal Jacket this year. She's got it all picking out, and she's bragging about it to me something awful. Him— Uh-huh. Mrs. Kergrab meets Kergrab In the disbursing office on pay dnys, knocks him down and out with a gnarled club, tukes hia pay envelope from him and when Kergrab wants to get his shoes half soled he has to beg. her for the sixty-five cents for a week. Her— Well, I think she does perfectly right, the miserable, drinking thing she has for a husband, and Him— She hasn't left Kergrab the price of a hooter of Swampoodle gin for six months to my dead sure knowl edge. Her— Well, it's a good thing she hasn't, so there, now. Look at the good use she puts the money that she saves to — she's going to have v. sealskin jacket. Him— Yep, and Kergrab will be slouching and slinking down the back streets in a bum Paisley shawl, as like as not. Her — And if you weren't so selfish as to spend every penny that you can rake and scrape on cigars and Him— Stogies, six for five. Her — And clothes Him — Last suit, made' to measure In April, $9.98. Her — And drinks — Him— One beer for lunch, one on my way home from office, ten skents. Her— And poker — Him — Why, fury and shucks, didn't I win 65 cents the last time I played, four months ago? Her — And betting on nasty old race horses in handbooks Him — Haven't made a bet In three months, then it was one ace, and I came near winning at that. Horse only got beat four days and three hours. Her— And thinking of nobody but yourself — Him — I'm thinking of having my rus set low shoes dyed black so's I can get the winter out of them. Her — And here it will soon be chilly weather, and I only need a few little things— that peal jacket, that's Just dirt cheap for $175, and a winter polo hat— I saw a perfect dear yesterday for $30 — and I have been wanting one of those gold chatelaine bags — Mrs. Kergrab lias had one for ever so long, and they're only $28 now — and I saw an Imitation diamond swan the other day that was onlyis27, and you couldn't tell It from genuine to save your soul, and what in the wide world I'm going to do for a new tailor suit I don't know, and — Him— Hey, hold up! You've forgot to mention that Panhard devil-wagon only $18,500, and you need that so bad. Her — And you get eighteen hundred a year now, and that's plenty for me to dress nice on, and — Him — Just about. Her— But you don't want to get me a single, solitary thing, so I can look de cent and hold my head up and not have the life shamed out of me every time I put my foot out of the house and meet my friends, and — boo-hoo — why didn't I marry a man that was somebody, as I had so many chances to, Instead of an unambitious g-g-g-government c-c-c. clerk who doesn't — Him (clapping on hat)— Well, there she goes! Twenty-three for mme — skld ,doo! Some Millinery Hints Small and medium sized hats are cor rect this season. All head coverings run to the pictur esque, and most of their smartness de pends at the angle at which they are tilted. Trlcornes and long, narrow turbans are noted by a tilt toward the front, while larger dress hats will take any angle becoming to the wearer. '. . ; Shapes short In front and very deep at the left side or back are very try- Ing, though swagger. The very high right side lift is most becoming. ; The soft pliable felt plateau will be much used on account of the bends and curves of the prevailing modes. A new idea is to cover It with velvet to with in an inch of Its edge. Velvet is to have an increased vogue, as well as feathers. Roses In the faded tones are among the fashionable trimmings. The ostrich plume must be of a shad" to tone In with the color of the hat. Smoke gray, plum and burgundy shades, green and brown, Marie Louisa blue, with just a suspicion of green In It, are the fashionable millinery tints of the season. Flat effects are sought In ostrich feather tlmming, the idea being to use two or three of the f ourteen-lnch length on one hat, often letting them droop over the back to form part of the cachepelgne. Lace draperies for dress hats are to be used to a degree, arranged over the flower trimmings in the front and then drooping slightly to -form the cache pelgne In the back. January Jones on Prohibition January Jones, a Nevada miner, has been in America only a few years, and our prohlblton laws still excite his won der. "I have visited a good many of your prohibition states," he said the other day In Philadelphia, "and it seems to me that people drink there 'just the same as In London or Paris or in Ne vada. I don't believe prohibition ' laws can be enforced. New Popular Salesladies Enter Names on List Who Will Be the Five Ladies to Receive the Handsome Prizes Given by The Herald? N. B. BLACKSTONE CO.
