STAID BERLIN HOW
German Capital Is Attempt
ing to Rival the Giddy
(Special CaM" from thn International
BY STEPHEN BURNETT.
Berlin. Feb. 25. Everyone knows
that Berlin has a secret longing to
rival Purl 8, and plenty of German
will tell you that their capital ia as
Interesting to Grangers, if strangers
could only recognize the fact. Ac
cordingly many efforts have been
made of recent year to attract visit
ors, some of them being direct copies
of Parisian Institutions. The Grune-
wnld race course was built to emu-
lute Longchampa. Two Ice "palaces"
have lately been opened to rival the
H known I'alals de Glace In the
Champa Klysee. Borne pears ago the I
kaiser, who Is as keen on attracting ;
rich people to his capital as anyone,:
tried by personal example to establish '
sort of Avenue Du HoIhc1 Uoulcgne ,
In the Tlergarten with the aid of court '
carriages and fashionably clothed
The very latcFt effort of a Parisian
sort has been a carnival procession
across Merlin, similar to that of the
Latin Quarter during tho Mi-Careme.
The Derlln cortege consisted of forty
carriages, headed by an Knglish mall
coach, fitted with a bund and follow
ed by a motley crowd of pages, fools,
Pierrettes, pierrots, fairies and clowns
The procession st ruled from the cen
ter of the town at noon for the Zoolog
ical Gardens, where after a little nour
ishment had been taken, it returned to
its starting point four hours later.
Years ago, a similar attempt was
made but was coldly received. This
time the reception was quite genial
and at one or two places, enthusiast Ic.
Still, one swallow does not make a
summer and there Is a vast difference
between sober Berlin and gay Paree.

Here Is a Simple Recipe for a Mas

Prepare at Home.
Germany has three kings their ma
jesties of Prussia, .Saxony and Wur
tembergs and two of them are now
on foreign leave from their respective
thrones Frederick August of Saxony
and Will: m of VVurtemberg. King
Frederick August left the other day
for two months hunting In Egypt and
the Soudan, and King William has
proceeded to Italy for a rest cure in
the salubrious climate of that sunny
realm. The Baxon king has left af
fairs In charge of his brother. Prince
John George, while King William of
Wurtembcrg designated his ministry
to fulfill Jointly the functions of a re
gent. There are suggestions In the
newspapers that the kaiser Is prepar
ing for a Mediterranean cruise In the
llohenzollern In March after the close
of the court "season."

No woman need suffer the humllia
tion of an unsightly complexion ifi
she massages the skin nightly with ,
plain cerol cream. This can be pre
pared at home at small cost if you get
2 ounces of cerol at the drug store
and dissolve in a scant pint of boiling
water and stir until smooth. j
Using this dainty and delightful
massage cream quickly rids pores of
blackheads, overcomes the oily, shiny ;
condition and makes the skin sort and
velvety, giving it a natural, healthy
tone which powder and rouge cannot

Prof. Alt and Mr. Brucker have de
vised a scheme to mitigate this ex
pansion. A force pump which can be
worked by the engineer with one
hand draws water up a tube to the
top of the ballon, whence a series of
sprays distribute the water in fine
jets over the whole of the upper surface.
Experiments at Munich during the
summer showed that the spray al
most neutralizes the effects of the
sun, and only needs to be repeated at

San Diego, Cal., Feb. 25. American
friends of Harry C. Dell, formerly of
New York, who is a captive of the
Mexican federal troops in Ixjwer Cali
fornia, as a result of the Mexican
revolution, are trying every possible
means today to obtain his release.
Dell is somewhere In the mountains
In custody of four soldiers. It is re
ported that he had been tried by court
martial and sentenced to death, but
this proved Incorrect.
It Is feared that Dell will be killed
on the road to Ensenada, where he is
being taken, ostensibly for trial. He
is accused of being a spy.

tells me that the book Is based for the
most part on photographs, facts, reve

dramatist himself, and that the bio

of hitherto unpublished reminiscences

The collections of Shawiana, owned
by Mr. William Archer and Mr. Hol-

the two men will, I gather, from one

Washington, Feb. 25. The feeling
prevails at the White House today
that perhaps there will be a vote on
reciprocity after all. The visitors
who called told the President it was
not hopeless yet it was far from en
couraging. Democrats in the senate were also
visitors to the executive office. Some
of them came to introduce friends
but others called to say that they
would assist the executive all they
could in getting a vote. Among these
was Senator Smith of South Carolina.
This southerner said that the mem
bers of his party wanted a vote and
d!d not want any extra session, lie
Baid in the first place the Canadian
agreement was good and thdt it
should be supported by all members
of the party on that account.

a drug store. We believe in the drug business not only as a business
to be conducted along business lines, but as a profession to be re

attended to with the same courteesy and care as a dollar one, and guar
