Some American Women Ap

, and Not the Man.
(special Cable from the International
News 8rvlce.)
Paris, Sept 17. Is the pursuit (for
It can be termed nothing else) of for
eign princes, earls, dukes, lords,
counts, marquises, barons anything
or anybody of the male persuasion
who bears a title, and Is unmarried
wealthy American women on matri
mony bent never to cease?
Not content to marry their own
countrymen who are clever, have posi
tion and money, are of good families
and whose lives are clean, they are
wild to marry a foreign male who
bears a title. If they cannot capture
a prince or princeling then they will
take the next best thing in the title
line, but they set their hearts on gain
ing the right to be known as "Prin
cess de This," or "Duchess of That,"
and so be in a position to "lord" it
over other females not so fortunate
(?) and to be able to "rub It in." per
haps on their return to the United
States, on members of the local soci
ety Bet who may have taken pleasure
in snubbing them before Miss "Mon
eybags" went to "Yurrup" with her
parents and actually succeeded in
matrimonially lassoing a "real live
prince," or if not some one not bear
ing quite so high a rank then "some
thing almost as good."
Mrs. Cornelia Baxter Tevis. or Mrs.
Baxter-Tevis (note the hyphen) as
she now calls herself, formerly of
Denver, Col., but later of San Fran
cisco, Is said to be very much taken
with Prince George of Leuchtenberg,
a German princelet, who is quite a
favorite in Berlin and Paris society,
and who is said to be a very good
sort, even though he be a princelet
At St Morltz, Mrs, Baxter-Tevis re
cently gave a very smart dinner of
twenty-live courses at one of the most
fashionable hotels there, in honor' of
Prince de Leuchtenberg. The greater
part of the guests were Italians .and
included Prnicipessa dl San Faustino,
Marchess and Marchessadl Rudini,
Marques and Marquesa della Gan
dara, Comtesse Francesca d'Orsay,
pelll, Conte del Sera and a number of
others with Italian and other titles.
Mrs. Baxter-Tevis usually spends
the summer at Deauvllle, one of the
most fashionable watering places in
France, but this year has been most
of the time at St . Morltz, where Prince
de Leuchtenberg has also been almost
the entire season. Mrs. Baxter-Tevis
and the prince were seen together at
many of the smart social functions
in Paris last season.

There are no people on the face of
the earth who know so well what they

how to get it better 'than citizens of

In France were few and far between in
hotels in those countries, with Ger
many added. There was no system of
heating apartments, and the often
badly burning grate fires which only
heated for a distance of a few feet
from its immediate vicinity were the
occasion for more cuss words than
could well be recorded.
In former days, too, when a guest
desired a bath an arrangement very
much resembling a large saucer was
lugged Into the room by a servant,
who then brought in hot water in
buckets until the "saucer" was filled.
By the time you had finished using
one of these wretched contrivances,
half the water had splashed on the
floor and you had but partly bathed.
The entire arrangement was barbaric.
Now adays, however, it is quite the
usual thing to. find bathrooms with
hot and cold running water, stationary
washstands and other sanitary conven

France, England and Germany. The
new hotels are all built with these im
provements, while the older establish

as possible.
All this is due to the Great American

Some Stray Topics Gathered
In Gay American Metropolis
(Palladium Special)
New York. Sept 17. Mrs. Ida M.
"von" Claussen, author, militant suf
fragette, member of the Joan of Arc
league, etc, wao, about a year ago,
achieved considerable notoriety by
threatening President Roosevelt with
a $1,000,000 suit because he had fail
ed to comply with her demand to re
call the American minister to Swed
en, Mr. Graves, who had aroused the
ire of the belligerent lady by his re
fusal to present her to King Oscar,
gained additional notoriety the other
day by making a disgraceful scene in
the offices of the United States Mort
gage and Trust company. Mrs. von
Claussen is one of the heirs of the
Michael Byrne estate held in trust by
the company referred to and has been
paid the interest on her share in regu-
lar installments. But. that did not!
suit the woman. The other day she
wanted $500 on account, but under
the rules of the trust company her de
mand was refused. : Then the woman
sent an emissary to the bank and
when this failed to have the desired
effect she went to the office of the
company herself and proceeded to
'"lick the tar" out of the president
and other officials of the Institution.
After that stormy episode thing3
were patched u: in a conference be-
tween her lawyer and the lawyers of
the trust company and it was decided,
to avoid further trouble with the pu
gilistic suffragette, to let her have the
$300. Mrs. von Claussen who, to make
sure of notoriety, had invited repre-j persons attempting to smuggle duti
sentatlves of the daily newspapers to i able goods, into the country, yet there
see her after the encounter at the
bank, expressed her delight over her

to pondering over the dangers arising
from the foolish habit of talking too
much. The man had an' important
appointment he had arranged to
meet a man in Brooklyn at a certain
time with the intention of shooting
him but he missed his appointment,
all because he did not have sense
enough to keep his mouth shut. On
the way to the meeting which was to
be fatal to the other man, the Italian
met a stranger. The latter, noticins
that the Italian seemed to be in a
state of unusual excitement asked
him what the trouble was. The Ital
ian, thinking of nothing but the deed
which he intended to commit, told
the stranger that he proposed to kill
a man. In answer to other questions
the blood-thirsty Italian betrayed the
whole secret of his plan and, as the
stranger happened to be a detective,
the son of sunny Italy was promptly
arrested. A big and fully loaded re
volver was found in his hip pocket. I
One of the magistrates in Brooklyn '
was arrested the other day on the
charge of having hugged and kissed a
pretty girl who had come to him with
a request to send her mother to some
public institution where she could be
cured of her tippling propensities.
The arrested dispenser of justice
strenuously denied the truth of the
charge and asserted that the whole
matter was merely a scheme of his
political enemies to injure his reputa
tion on the eve of the primaries. He
declared that he had never seen the
girl In his life and had surely never
kissed her. This is the first time that
a New York magistrate has ever been
arrested for kissing a pretty girl and
the other magistrates are awaiting the
outcome of the case, which will estab

Two young . swells, both in a state
of evident Intoxication, ' caused con
siderable excitement in- the most fash
ionable part of Fifth avenue the oth
er day. They were driving a run
about along Fifth, avenue at break
neck speed, zig-zagglng from one curb
to the other and endangering ' the
lives or pedestrians as weu as or tne
occupants of other vehicles. When
one of the traffic policemen tried to
arrest them, the young swells made a
desperate fight and not until several
other policemen appeared upon the
scene could the two men be subdued
and handcuffed. It was a fortunate
thing for ' the traffic policeman that
the whole affair was witnessed frora
beginning to end by two police mag
istrates, who hastened to call up the
magistrate presiding in the night
court and to rive him a detailed ac-
count of the incident. When the two
offenders were brought before the
night court, they attempted to save
themselves by charging the officer
with having assaulted them. In such
'cases the magistrates are inclined to
' give credence to charges or brutality
against policemen, but the two mag
1 istrates who had witnessed the arrest
had expressly emphasized the consid
eration which the officer had shown
to the young men, even when they
were fighting him. Under the circuni-
stances the lies of the prisoners avall-

mentions in the last chapter of
the second book of Kings. 'And
it came to pass in the ninth year
of his reign, in the tenth mouth
and in the tenth day of the
month, that Nebuchadnezzar,
the king of Babylon, came, he
and alt his hosts, against Jerusa

How "Sonder" Came Into Yachting.
Many wuu are not yachtsmeu have
wondered at the word "sonder." which
has appeared In the public prints dur
ing the last five years iu various news
items in connection with yacht racing.
When the (German emperor signified
his willingness to give a prize to stim

five years ago. his yachting advisers
suggested that the trophy should be
offered for small yachts of not over
thirty-two feet racing length, and a
this would constitute a new class a

The word sonder was adopted as bear
