Immediately the guns of the war ships began their thundering, the Brit ish, French and American ships firing their royal salutes together while every ship hoisted the royal standard and broke a mass of color from stem to 6tern. The Indomitable advanced majesti cally with sailors and marines ranged along the gun deck. As she swung alongside the New Hampshire, the co lossal magnitude and power of the British ship 6tood out in bold relief against the American battleship, which looked like a delicate white yacht beside the truly monstrous en gine of destruction.

Then it is cored for days. Tli en each separate berry is flaked so thin that the full heat of our ovens can attack every atom. Then those thin flakes are baked for 30 minutes in a heat of 400 de grees. That heat nukes the wheat di gestible. It separates the particles so the digestive juices can get to them. And that is essential Flakes that look the same can be made in one-fourth the time. But a food that's all food a food that all digests must be prepared in our way. That's why Mapl-Flake stands to-day where it does. Fads come and fads go. But, in the long run, the food of real merit will win. Those who change for a time will come back to it. For wheat is the food of the ages. And Mapl-Flake is wheat prepared in the most scientific form. An Apt Pupil. A professor who, when asked a ques tion, was in the habit of saying: "That Is a very good point Indeed. Look it up for yourself," was once much disgust ed with a student who had failed to answer a very simple question. "Mr. Jones," said he, "I'm surprised that you, who are going to teach, cannot answer such an elementary question, Why, what would you do if one of your pupils were to ask it?" "Well, profess or," replied the other, "if such a thing had happened before I came here I'm afraid I would have said plainly that I didn't know, but now I think I'd do just as you do and say, 'Look It up, my boy; look It up!

Thoreau. A FREAK OF THE CRAZY KING. He Frightened and Enraged the Great Diva by His Strange Whims, and When She Finally Sang For Him In Munich It Drove Him Wild. When Fatti was in the first heyday of her fame Ludwig II., the mad king of Bavaria, set his heart on having her sing for him at his private auditorium in Munich. He wrote letter after let ter, begging. Imploring, offering ex travagant sums of money, but Patti resolutely refused to go. She had heard too many stories of Ludwig's freaks and was desperately afraid of him, but at last the king offered her a sum so enormous that it seemed ridiculous to refuse it Then the singer plucked up courage and 6tarted for Munich. When she and her maid alighted at the sta tion not even a carriage was there to meet them, and they had to inquire the name of the best hotel and call a cab. That was the first shock to the diva's nerves and temper. After luncheon she started out to see the town and Inci dentally to examine the posters an nouncing Europe's greatest singer. Not a mention of her name could she find. She rushed back to the hotel and told her maid to pack the trunks. Just at that moment a resplendent officer delivered a letter from the king. The letter stated curtly that his maj esty would wait for her at 7 o'clock precisely in the royal palace, where his singer in ordinary, Mnie. Fischer, would give her further directions. Mme. Fischer would also sing with Mme. Patti the duets which his maj esty wished to hear. A programme was inclosed. Patti wept with rage. "I have never been treated so bru tally," she said. "I shall leave at once. Tell the king so. I will not sing- never, never, never:' ine omcer pleaded with the irate prima donna. His majesty had been wild with ex citement ever 6ince he knew she would come and had not slept for three nights, so great was his Joy at the prospect of hearing her. "Besides," dded the officer, "you know your king Is Is is" "Crazy," snapped Patti. "Yes, that's very comforting, Isn't it? I don't know why 1 ever came." Just then she caught sight of this postscript: "The king commands Mme. Patti to appear In pure white, without any color whatever, and not by any means to wear a satin gown, but soft wooL Silk is painful to his majesty." "His majesty will have to be pained. I have no white woolen gown except toy peignoir. I shall wear red velvet." "Red!" groaned the officer. "Oh, no, no! Red sends his majesty into fits. If you appear In red, he will scream and have convulsions. Oh, do be pa tient, madame! I will bring Mme. Fischer to you. She understands the king's nerves. She will explain." He fled from the room, and shortly after Mme. Fischer appeared upon the scene. She soothed Patti into good humor and also attacked the white wool peignoir and transformed It into a most becoming Greek robe. Before 7 the royal carriage arrived at the hotel and Patti went to the pal ace. She was led through dimly lighted rooms and corridors into Lud wig's private theater, which was In utter darRness save for the moonlight that entered through the windows. Patti stood upon the dark stage, while an orchestra, somewhere out of sight, began a soft prelude. Through the gloom she could Just make out a white face In the royal box opposite the stage. Not another auditor was in the great hall. Patti felt the cold shivers creeping over her. She shook with nervousness and fear, and when she should have begun her aria not, a sound could she make. She opened her mouth, but her throat was paralyzed from nervous terror. There was a pause. The king sprang up and leaned forward out of the box, his white face gleaming In the moonlight The violins repeated the prelude. Patti gathered herself to gether and made one heroic effort Her voice rang out into the great empty place, and the king sank back into the dark box. Patti, though badly scared, made the effort of her life and finished the aria from "La Traviata" triumphantly and stood flushed with victory. Dead si lence. Not a sound came from the gloom before her. She went off the stage in a temper. Mme. Fischer was behtnd the scenes, and Patti waited with her for the signal to sing the next number. A messenger appeared at the door. His majesty had had enough music and had gone to his apartments. For a moment Patti stood stunned. Then she laughed. The rudeness was so colossal that it was funny. Mme. Fischer took the diva to cupper and then home. The next morning Mme. Fischer called at the hotel once more, accom panied by the court chamberlain, who bore the promised efceck. an autograph letter of thanks from the king and some jewels of great value. King Ludwig, Mme. Fischer said, was in one of his maddest moods, wild with re gret cursing himself and cursing Pat ti. He had walked the floor all night groaning that he was a traitor, for Patti's voice had so ravished his senses that for one moment he had gone over to Italian music and bad been false to Wagner, the one mnsiclan who alone had satisfied his majesty's soul. "That was better than having bored him," added Patti, shrugging her shoul ders.

He is then considered a true Welshman. All the toasts are coupled with the name of St David. It is In much this way that the toast with highland honors is drunk. Each guest stands with one foot on his chair and one on the table, and the pipers, a-pip-ing, parade the room. MD IT MDW2 Burn Artificial Gas in an Artificial Gas Range.

The Black Hand By ALFRED HENRY LEWIS Do you know, Mr. American, that there are thirty thou sand Italian thieves in New York City today? Thirty thousand organized blackmailers? That they extort six , million dollars a year from the Italians on Manhattan Is land ? That in the last four months they have wrecked fif teen houses with bombs ? That more are coming in every day and that the police absolutely can't handle them ? It is time for every one of us to think about these things because some day this Sicilian murder ring is going to get more ambitious and begin on us. Alfred Henry Lewis has written us an article that makes this whole Black Hand game as plain as daylight. He proposes a remedy, too, and so does Joseph Petrosini, the chief detective of the Italian squad at Police Headquarters in New York. For downright sheer midnight mystery, murder and hair-breadth escapes you had better read this article.
