SHE IS LEADER Wife of Senator Foraker of Ohio, Is Popular in Washington. ;BEST EFFORTS AT HOME. Washington, May 23. People may differ in their estimate of the senior senator from Ohio, but Mrs. Foraker remains one of the most popular and capable leaders of congressional soci ety. ', Senator Foraker furnishes an index of his wife's character in a remark made recently: "I never have disre garded her opinion on a subject, that J did not regret it." Mrs. Foraker possesses a fine in tuition. She "feels" when things will turn out right. Though she makes no 'special effort to understand the great American game of politics, there are Princess de Montglyon, whose dia mond earrings were seized by the United States customs authorities in New York when she endeavored to raise a large loaji on them. The au thorities wanted to learn how she brought them into this country. The Princess satisfied them that she brought the diamonds here as person al effects, and they were returned to her. The gems are among the largest in the world and were presented to an ancestor of the Princess by Marie Antoinette. IFor IHIn1t Wallhiir Cooking with gas on a Favorite Gas Stove saves you money.

Get our prices. few better equipped to give advice on political issues. She has accompanied the senator on his campaign trips through Ohio and knows the people and can estimate the strength, relia bility and general capability of voters. But Mrs. Foraker does not claim political ecumen nor essay the role of a public woman or leader. Her best efforts are put forth in her home. There is no detail of housekeeping at which she is not an adept. In her early married days she managed her own home with one small maid and she takes charge of a retinue of ser vants just as efficiently. The mansion which the senator er ected about fifteen years ago on the corner of Fifteenth and P streets is magnificently furnished and every room shows the discrimination of an intelligent mistress. There are five children in the Foraker family, three daughters and two sons. Only Miss Louise Foraker and the youngest, Ar thur Sinclaire, are now at home. THE DANCE OR DEATH It Was One of the Two for Young Wife of an Easterner. SHE ATTEMPTS SUICIDE. New York. May 24.

Twenty-ninth street and then fell unconscious into her weep ing husband's arms. She was taken to Bellevue, where it was said she would recover. When this news was carried to the erstwhile weeping husband, George Conover, he grew angry. "I think she's a bluffer," he said; "I'll never live with her again unless she quits dancing." Conover and his wife met at an east side ball. The young woman, accord ing to her husband, was very fond of dancing. He declares she often went out Saturday nights and whirled her self around on waxed floors till 2 a. m. They separated. She went home to mother. He took up board at his brother's. Yesterday the bride came To the brother's to see her husband. He asked her, he says, if she would give up dancing if he returned to her. She refused. "You know that I still love you,' she cried, "but dancing is the only pleas ure I have. But I cannot live without you." She took a bottle of iodine from the bosom of her dress and drank half of the contents before the hus band could dash the vial from her hand. Then she sank unconscious in Bis arms.

Jennings Bryan, with shirt sleeves rolled up and pal ette in hand, today welcomed your correspondent to his Latin Quarter studio and showed him the head of an Apostile which he is just starting on a huge canvas, depicting the "Last Supper." This painting the artist declares to be his greatest work. "That is, if my friends and eager American reporters give me a chance to gain the concentration and mind necessary for such an undertaking," said Mr. Leavitt, laughingly. "It seems I have been interviewed regu larly every week concerning an ab surd report that Mrs. Leavitt and my self would be divorced. The final and the most eloquent denial of that re port that I can give you is to show you a letter which I recently received from Mr. Bryan." "If the press and public realized the contents of these letters from my wife here Mr. Leavitt unearthed a packet, tied with blue ribbon, they would cease this Idle gossip. I wish they would never have started the re port, which only causes annoyance to such a sweet lady.

Lombard advanced this theory in a lecture on "Silence as a Factor in Healing", delivered to the "Psycje Thereapeutic society." "People silent by nature" affirms Mr. Lombard, "are never ill." Very cften those whom the specialists re rpCeive in their consulting rooms are great talkers. To talk about symp toms is a fatal habit" Mr. Lombard quoted the case of a lady who came to his house badly broken down. She had been to specialists without result and now came to him for a silence cure. After staying for some time and avoiding talk, she left perfectly cured. Unfortunately her women friends forced her to talk so much in describing the cure that she got 111 again. A London specialist. Dr. Stenson Hooker, suggests that every hospital should set apart at least one room for the silence cure. Paris, May 25.
