Polaire, the famous French actress, who has made a fortune and achieved phenomenal success, on account of her extremely ugly face and figure. The picture shows her in a stage costume which she adopted to accentuate her ugliness. Paris, April 9.-Mlle. Polaire, a French woman, who prides herself on being the ugliest woman on the stago today, and one of, if not the most unat tractive woman, so far as features go, In France, has returned from a profes sional visit to London. She scandal ized the staid Britishers by her well, let us call It, strange dancing. It is nearly five years since this peculiar person proceeded to storm the Paris theatrical world. From her keen ob servation of the conditions surround ing her, at that time, rather obscure position, she evolved the conclusion that the pretty girls in the ranks of the chorus, of which she was a mem ber, remained generally speaking, un noticed. She therefore said to her self, "I am so utterly ugly that I have decided to attempt a new lead. I will accentuate, if possible, my bad points of form and feature to such an extent that even . future. , generations shall speak of me as the 'hideous Polaire!' She thereupon proceeded to encase her extremely ugly legs in short socks, army and the regimental band will furnish some of the most delightful music we have heard for a long time.

Another headllner this week is the Cox Family Quintette in their musical comedy sketch which has proved very popular at every appearance.

UNUSUAL PROPOSAL Wealthy New Yorker Was Certainly Practical to Say the Least. ENGAGEMENT BROKEN NOW Poughkeepsie, N. Y April 9. Unus ual stipulations in a marriage proposal were brought out in the supreme court here today when the $50,000 breach of promise suit brought by Miss Mary Horner against Henry Webendorfer, a wealthy resident, was called for trial. Miss Horner, who is 4S years old and a country housekeeper, accepted Weben dorfer's terms of marriage last Sep tember, and the following month Web endorfer broke off the engagement According to a letter written to Miss Horner by Webendorfer, and which was read in Court to-day, a part of ths marriage proposal read: T will pay you monthly payments of $300 a year and $250 on Christmas. If you are good to me, at my death I will deed you property yielding you an Income of $1,000. "This is void, though, if you and I dont get along. If we live together at the end of three years I will pay you $10,000, and at the end of five years or any time after I will pay you $15,000. On your side you will have to treat me kindly and will have to keep a good table for me."

Her wiry, thick black hair she cut short, crowding it with the most eccentric headgear. Always thin and lanky in body, she reduced her waist line until she declared it to be the smallest of any living woman. The result of all this clever and pre meditated advertising was to launch her on a high wave of success. Plays are now written for her especially People , crowd the theater to witness her performance, while they stop and stare at her in the streets. She has a beautiful residence on the Champes Elysees, and so great has been her pub lie success that London theatrical man agers are besieging her with offers of engagement.

TO BE BURIED ON MATTRESS Laurel, Del., April 9. Unique fea tures attended the - interment in the Pepper burying . ground of William Minas Boyce, a Broad Creek farmer, who died last Wednesday. There was no coffin. The body rested on a mat tress cot, which was placed in a large mahogany box and then sealed up with cement in an unusually shallow grave. ' ,- .. . All this was in accordance with ex plicit instructions which Mr. Boyce, ever noted for his Quaint eccentrici ties, had given the undertaker and the members of his family. It was several years ago when Mr. Boyce accosted Willard Saulsbury Holt, an undertaker, and told him he wanted Mr. Holt to bury him, but there was to be no coffins "I want my grave dug not too deep and cemented tight," said the aged man. "Then I want a nice mattress cot and a pillow placed in. Then when you are sure that I am dead place me in the cot and wrap me up and there let me rest, and I don't want anr fuss about it either. Mind you, if you don't do as I tell you." continu ed Mr. Boyce, "I will come back and haunt you just as sure as the devil is a Dutchman." The same request with the same threat was made by Mr. Boyce to his sons. Vanity Tickled. During the early excesses of the French revolution a rabble of men and women were rioting in the streets of Paris. Lafayette appeared and ordered a young artillery officer to open fire upon them with two cannon. The of ficer begged the general to let him try first to persuade them to withdraw. "It is useless to appeal to their rea son, said the general. "Certainly," answered the officer, "and It is not to their reason, but to their vanity, I would appeal." The officer rode up to the front of the mob, doffed his cocked hat, pointed to the guns and said: . "Gentlemen will have the kindness to retire, for I am ordered to shoot down the rabble.

The supreme court of California has cited Attorney Ralph Schoonover of Santa Bargara for contempt because he used George Ade's slang in preference to the lan guage of Blackstone in a brief recently submitted to the learned judges. When the court met en banc to re view the papers in the appeal case of Williams vs. Lane, one of the justices took up the brief of Attorney Schoon over and began to read it aloud. "Then the state court butts in to the game," he read in an amazed tone. "Beg pardon, I didn't follow," inter rupted.one of the learned associate jus tices. '".'I . . ; "Then the state court butts in" "My gracious," exclaimed a justice, "did Blackstone ever use such lan guage?" '. ' ' "If my memory serves me," suggest ed Justice Melvin, "it sounds like a newer master, George Ade, I believe his name is." State Court Butted In. The justice who was reading the brief continued: "Then a state court butts into the game, and when it has gotten its but ter going it is unable to stop, but continues with all the judicial solemni ty of an owl. Its actions would doubtless pass muster in a circus or a moving picture studio, but certainly do not comport very well with the dignity and caution" "Dignity and caution, does he say sacrilege," muttered a , learned judge. "But go on; we must get this night mare over. And they talk of abolish ing capital punishment." . The reading of the brief was contin ued: "Do not comport very well with the dignity and caution and evenness of mind popularly believed to be per sonified in one who wears the judicial ermine and is presumed to know the law and to administer it. . 11 There was a general judicial gasp en banc.'': v f , "The decision is a peach," continu ed the reader. ; "What r exclaimed a learned judge. "Whatr, -v "In the vernacular," explained Justice Melvin," "the word "peach signifies any thing-rare, pretty I gather that it is used here in an ironical sense." Decision Declared Rotten. - " 'Said rotten decision," continued the reader, " "was the rottenest decision-that ever disgraced the records of any court, for it wiped out the entire story of his perfidy. It is a raw decis ion. " "That, I fancy. Is another colloquial ism,' asserted Justice Henshaw. : "The said judgment, the brief read, 'is one of the wonders of the legal world, lt is a finding not only frivolous, but false as welL and was intended simply as a cloak to cover more vil lainy. .

Uany People Think They Can and Occasion of Considerabt e London, April : 9. Can birds talk. reason, unaersiana, . appreciate com panionship? These and a score of such questions are suggested by the experience of a Stourbridge resident with his tame love bird. A year ago some notice was at tracted by the eloquence of one of these tiny parakeets. A talking love bird had not been known before, and this specimen which talked rapidly. was regarded as a freak. Some months ago this "little wonder" hopped down one day on to his master's hand, utter ed "Pretty Poll" In his usual vivacious manner and died without more ado. Another bird was procured, and this, too, after three months' instruction, is able to talk. The achievements of the bird have stirred considerable interest in the nieghborhood, where a certain number of the birds are bred, and though the bird was not in a great talking vein. he said enough to prove his powers. He can rattle off a string of little phrases: "Oh, how do you do," "Pretty Polly a beauty, and so on, all tripping off the tongue consecutively like a , song and generally preceded by a low : laugh -and a preparatory "tchut, tchut, tchut" Imitates Other Birds. The effect is just that of a lark's song, from which leap out the Imitat ed notes of thrushes and blackbirds. only from this song the phrases that come have the exact human intonation and accent, and the effect is inde scribable when a human voice pro ceeds from a little creature that weighs hardly an ounce. The bird, like many of its species. clearly recognizes human companion ship. He sleeps on his perch when his master sleeps In his chair. As soon as the master wakes the bird opens Dropsy Given up by Doctor "I had dropsy, and was told by my family physician that there was no chance for me. My family also gave me up. My limbs ; and body were ; swollen one-third larger than natural, water collected around my heart and I had to be propped up in bed to keep from smothering. I took Dr. Miles' Heart Remedy until I was entirely cured. This was in 1902, and I am now able to do any kind of work on my farm. .My cure was certainly marvelous." L. TURLEY CURD, Wilmore, Ky.

He will shake hands and respond to calls. As this bird is not of the same stock as the other, it is probable that all this popular species may be taught to speak. The great secret of teach ing the humanities to the bird is iso lation from other birds. The previous' talker bad no companion but a stuff ed parrot, on which it vented its rage. This bird has no companion but a small mirror, to the Image of which It offers food and makes much obeis ance. Whether It regards the reflec tion as a real bird Is hard to tell, but it is furious when the mirror is re moved: and when it talks in the lan-' guage of man the bird almost always turns Its back on the mirror. It is probable that If similar trouble were taken with an English starling and like methods applied wonderful results would be achieved.
