PAlETimEE AMERICAN GIRLS : MUCH TOO PROUD A Millionaire Bachelor Gives a Talk on the Subject Of Matrimony. COURT RULING THE CAUSE COMMENTS ARE MADE AFTER THE NEPHEW OF THE WEAL THY MAN HAD BEEN ORDERED TO PAY ALIMONY. Members Parliament Drink up , Beer; Leave Ocean Liner Dry Cleveland, O., Aug. 14. "American girls are too proud to do their own housework," is the comment of Val entine Christ, seventy-two years old and the heaviest holder of land in Cleveland, on a court order to his nep hew, Henry, to pay his wife $4 week ly alimony, v "They will settle their differences, Chough, I guess," said Christ today. "The boy had better pay meanwhile. Henry met the girl when he was mak ing rent rounds with me. She was Julia Brooks, daughter of a St. Clair avenue doctor. I've seen her standing in the door. She wasn't pulling beans cither, like a coming wife of a farm bould be. ' , Henry Bragged. "Before they were married Henry bragged his wife wouldn't have to work. But Henry worked I've driv en by his place and seen him work ing at 11 o'clock at night. His wife did not work that way and the smash up came. The trouble with American girls is that they arc too proud to do their own work. , "Work's no disgrace, though. I've seen wives of the rich people out on the lake shore working in the gardens while their husbands were dirty. They seemed to like it. The girls are ex travagant, too. Why, I've heard of them paying $15 for a single hat and thinking nothing of it. A wife that will work is the kind for a young man. They'll get rich twice as fast with that kind of a wife." Christ is a bachelor, and until a year ago lived in a little shack behind the Holenden hotel at a daily cost, It. war rpnnrtprt nf Ipkb than 25 cents. t ; Once Christ nearly was married. Driving to the preacher's house with his fiancee, they argued. She wanted him to keep a girl. He insisted she should do the work herself. J9he persisted and he remained a bachelor. New York, Aug. 14. "It was this way, mate," said the lookout of the Adriatic, as he proceeded to tell how the Czar of Russia and the house of lords had produced a thirst at sea that had extended for twelve hundred miles knots, he called it, after his seafaring way. "The bloomin ship went away from New York with enough bottled beer to keep a skat congress or a penucble tournament running for a week. We had gone over without a tliirst belug unwet and without the slightest kick from any source, and last Monday, on the way back, when we had hit a point 1,200 knots out, the steward says to me, says he: " -JBill, there ain't a bottle of beer on board and a lot of fellows from St Louis are fixing to try wireless on the horizon to see if some ship won't pick up a "S. O. S." call and heave to with relief. " 'What's wrong?' says I to him. " 'It's this way, says he, getting con fidential like; 'it's all on account of parliament. . "'You see, when we got over to the other side, the bloomin Czar was at Cowes having all the ships of the home squadron trotted out for. his in spection and incidentally to keep some bloke from slipping In a chunk of dy namite under the royal craft "When we gets over to the channel out comes a dispatch boat and tells us that we is to heave to and take on a lot of members of parliament who is to use lis to review the fleet Being on the subsidy list and having to lis ten when his majesty sends a button out to take command, we got Into line and took on the big ones who had been dodging suffragettes for the past year. " 'No sooner do they get on board than their lordships send around and tell the steward to pass all the Amer ican beer he has in review, and their lordships made off with every bloody bottle on the ship. On the level, we had enough of it to float a ship into Suez when we started.' " am artist. r Great French Writer's Opinion oi His Own Drawings.

The boys of Post C were well pleased with their first convention and pronounce the same a great success. None of the boys were prize winners. They were either too good looking or not good enough. John Hegger entered in the talking contest, but found for the first time, a great many who could beat him a hundred ways. He says he is going to practice up a little. John Hirshberger was not good looking and not ugly enough to win a prize. He entered In both classes, but was clearly out classed both times. Two members of Post C were paid In demnities last month. John A. Evans was paid fifty dollars for running a nail in his foot, and Harvey Gard was given twenty-five dollars for a sprain ed ankle.

At Melilla, Al hucemas and Penon de la Gomera, the fighting between the Spaniards and the tribesmen is continuous. It is the third day of the conflict and re ports received here say that fully 6, 000 killed and wounded have fallen. The fighting at Penon de la Gomera is particularly fierce. The Moors have the Spanish garrison surrounded and the battle wages night and day. The extension of the warfare over an area so extensive it interfered with the plan of Gen. Marina at Melilla who planned to cut down the war by a sin gle blow at the concentrated forces of the Moors around Mount Gurugu. Big Naval Force. With the broadening of the Moo--ish field operations Gen. Marina Is demanding more aid. With a force of 5,000 at his command he now wants 7,000 more before striking what he desires to be the decisive blow. The entire strength of the Spanish navy Is now enlisted In the war. The warships will put sail to the relief of Spanish coast cities attacked by tribesmen and shell Mount Gurugu to cover the assault to be made by Gen. Marina. Ending a Letter. The simplicity of "Yours" as a lettei ndln.tr would have astounded Jeremy Taylor, whose letters to 4ha Evelyn often wind up with perfect triumphs f complexity In this respect. His best Is. "Believe me that I am. In great heartiness and nearness of affection. dear sir, your obliged and most affec tionate and endeared friend and serv ant." or "Your very affectionate friend and hearty servant." Even in his shortest perorations of the kind the affectionate' and the "servant" are always the two indispensable words.

This last one seems to be the most violent of any he has yet had. All his neighbors are now becoming quite interested in his case. Yesterday morning Shorty roll ed out of bed at 6:0O a. m.. the earliest since he went to see the last circus unload five years ago. Two drays, the largest in town, were awaiting orders from his highness Shorty. Of all the family disturbance, this beat them all. Even SupL George Staubach has not had a case to equal this for general disruption. Babies were creeping, dogs were barking, the women of the neighborhool were wringing their hands and carrying on at an awful clip. Shorty was the loudest of the crowd shouting orders to Wsmen and nnlHne thines out of the house in large chunks. Everything came out, the neighbors stood st-icken with fear and not daring to interfere with the mad-like actions of Shorty. At last the drays were loaded -ind away they darted in a hurry, turning east on Maiii street- One neighbor, braver than the rest, followed the pro cession and located the outfit at the Chautauqua grounds. That is the last seen of Shorty. How he got the three Some people care very little for ex penses. How would you like to trade a-pound and a half of good butter for a bottle of Richmond Export? The article appearing some time ago in the Marion T. P. A. column criticis ing at great length the actions of the national board of directors was un called for and untimely. No doubt, Mr. Kleeder's motives were of the very best and his actions were based on the desire to better the T. P. A. organ ization wherever that is possible. That any more loyal or patriotic mem ber than he is to be found in the or ganization is beyond question. But he has failed to consider a few important facts that might quiet our criticism at this time. For the purpose of argument we will grant that all the charges against the so-called gang are true. Indiana has always stood for what j is best in T. P. A. ism and she shall continue to do so. But Indiana In the present discussion can criticise with little grace the actions of the Missouri gang. Was it not due to a compromise on Indiana's part that the program at Asheville was carried out so easily, so effectively and so completely? Was it not also due to the actions of one of Indiana's sons that the Missouri gang won out at all? And was this com promise not all done for the Bake of harmony? When one compromises with the devil he must expect to assume a lit tle of his personality. So when In diana compromised with the Missou rians they became a party to their ac tions and should suffer the results of their folly. A just and righteous cause can gain nothing by compromise. Indiana in the last fight should have stood by her guns and gone to defeat, rather than be a party to any com promise that effected the interests of the organization. To sacrifice a prin ciple for the purpose of furthering the Interests of one man is bad policy, i Missourians are good politicians. They pulled out the old harmony stunt that has done service in many a battle and Indiana swallowed the bait. Don't cry now, but keep your eye on your powder and prepare for another fight to come. Rather than go off to Misouri and discuss the national board let us take up affairs right here in old Indiana and bring about a more united body. Let us strengthen wherever we can building Indiana into the strongest di vision of the national organization. Let those who desire to run every thing give way to the consideration of others. A few ir. Indiana would like to do tnings on the rule or ruin policy. These fellows must be shown the error of their way. It is not a healthy sign to hear a member threaten to leave the organiz ation because be has not been able to have his own way. Perhaps the T. P. A. would be better off if they did quit the organization. Such is not the ac tions of men. There are many little things here and there, scattered over the state that needs attention. All these little ruffles must be eliminated and Indiana, at the next national con vention, must go forth a greater, grander and more united body than ever before. Then let us show to the 40,000 mem bers the worth of our cause. Let us prove to all the value of our claims. Let us show the entire national or ganization that Indiana, thoroughly united, represents: all Lthatt, is good, grand and noble In the T. P. A. When we have done this we can not fail in our claims. We can not help but do the greatest good to the greatest. number. AUGUST ATTRACTIONS 1- H-'(U)'a ' F y D 3 OKI D Gm J4 5-ai Choice Oak Chase Leather Daven ports, $19.75, $26.75, $33.00 and upwards.

This was Barnum's idea. How could he carry it out? By sending animal hunters into the wilds of Africa, along the banks of the Nile and into parts of Egypt that were practically unknown. All of this meant terrific expense, but the show man did not hesitate. He es tablished agents in 'India, Africa, and Asia. , The work of, these agents is to be seen in the zoological collection ex bited by the big circus. There is no other collection in the world that even compares with it. It represents a value that can hardly be estimated. , In the menagerie are one hundred and ten cages and dens of animals. But this is not all. There are hun dreds of what the circus man call led animals. These include sacred cattle from India, yaks, nylgaus, zebras from Abyssinia, the African buffalo, herds of Siberian camels and squads of elephants from India and Africa. More than half of all the elephants in this country are with the circus. Among the . strange animals are a family of giant giraffes, the tallest and finest specimens anywhere ' In captivity in the world. - There la a huge blood sweating hippopotamus to. a den that it takes eight sturdy borsea to move. A double horned rhinoceros. the only one of its kind in captivity, occupies a large den. Bears from the Arctic regions and others from Alaska, the wild boar from thenGennan forests, the kangaroo from the Australian hills and the horned horse from Africa ail have a place. There -are surprises In the menagerie even to the naturalist for there he will see viaak vaark, or wart hog, an animal thought to be extinct, and other four-footed creat ures of .which there arc no histories. In the circus . itself, marvelously trained animals play an important part. They have made the biggest kind of a hit and do things which will ,be long remembered. Everybody is immensely pleased over the fact that the circus Is to give a monster parade and show day prom ises to be one of the most popular hol idays of the entire year. Indianapolis, Aug. 14. Henry Ries enberg, member of the Indiana con servation commission, today issued a proclamation to the people of Indiana with reference to the national conser vation congress at Seattle. He says he wishes to appoint as many dele gates from Indiana as possible. The "proclamation is as follows: "Whereas, The first national con servation congress of the United States of America will be held at Seat tle, Wash., August 26, 27 and 28, 1909, under the auspices of the Washing ton Conservation Association; and, Whereas it Is necessary that the most active and brilliant men and wo men of our country be enlisted in a vigorous campaign of public educa tion for properly disseminating the principles of conservation among our people in order that we may conserve protect and perpetuate our natural re sources of land and water, prevent In dividual waste and national extrava gance, and assist in instructing all the people in the art of conserving and utilizing these resources for the bene fit of present and future generations, and Whereas this congress promises to be a great convocation place for the most prominent leaders in statesman ship, representing the best thought of the nation, and' also promises to pre- AUTO III A SMASHUP New York, Aug. 14.

Canned Fruit in Woman's Breach of Promise Suit Cleveland, Aug. 14. Back in 1007 Bertha South worth canned a large quantity of fruits and pickles because she says, Lee Caipenter promised to marry her on October 25 of that year, and she wanted to be prepared to go to housekeeping right. But for some reason or other she and Carpenter never married. Miss Southworth says Carpenter went back on his promise. However that may be, she was left with the fruit on her hands. For all the use it was to her, a seamstress, she says it might as well have been an elephant. Today she sued Carpenter for $5,000 alleging breach of promise. : Among other tilings Miss Southworth men tions the canned fruit in her bill, say ing she should be recompensed for the time and labor expended and mon ey lost on preparing 'the canned goods. .
