THE TIMES. porting LEWIS GETS COLD FEET. Los. Angeles, Cal., April 10. A week Rgro Jimmy Gardner and Harry Lewis "were 1 matched to flgrht twenty-five rounds before Jim Jeffries' club the bsttle being scheduled for April 23, which was to be the opening battle in the new pavilllon. Transportation was wired both figthers. Wednesday Jef fries received word from his Eastern representative that Lewis had cold feet , and had returned transportation money and withdrawn from the match. Yesterday Unk Russell was substi tuted in place of Lewis. Today word was received by Jeffries that Russell also- had passed up the match terday by letting down the collegians with two hits. He pitched the full nine innings. CHICAGO BOY FAVOKITE. NEW YORK TO PAEIS RACERS BALKED BY ALASKAN SNOWS. Valdez, Alaska, April 9, via Skagway and Seattle, April 10. The Thomas car In the New York to Paris auto race was shipped for Seattle today, the at tempt to cross Alaska being abandoned. Stage men and . mail carriers had painted such dismal pictures, of the prospects awaiting on the roads that Schuster decided to inspect them be fore risking burial in' a snow drift and .losing all chance of carrying the Am erican flag into Paris. The drivers started on a ten mile , trial over the trail. "When the party : reached Camp Comfort, ten miles out, .all were absolutely convinced of the .Impossibility of driving an auto through the country. . , The only path was a sleigh track thirty-four Inches in its widest part. .One step beyond this a man flounders . ,to the waist. The Alaskan snow crust Is a Paris myth. Snow is now melting in drifts six to fifteen feet deep. San Francisco, April 10. Apparently trained to the hour for their fight to morrow afternoon, Packey McFarland and Britt rested today with the ex ception of a little light road work to keep op edge. Sporting men expect the greatest contest in months when the men meet at Colma. Although Britt is supported by thou sands of friends the weight of money has made McFarland a favorite at 9 to 10. Many wagers, some of them large, have been sent from Chicago by admirers of the little fighter. For a time it seemed likely that he would enter the ring a strong favorite, but Britt's work In the last week of his training has convinced his friends that he had got back into good condition, and they poured a flood of money into the pool boxes. Britt has seen a good deal of the gay life in the last year, and it was doubted whether he could get back into form. WAGNER AGAIN SAYS "NIEN." Pittsburg, Pa., April 10. Barney ,Dreyfuss. president of the Pittsburg ball club, and Honus Wagner, the former shortstop of the team, arrived here today to be present for the pri .nary election to be held tomorrow .Both men are Interested in the out come of the elections. Wagner reiterated his former state ment that he would play baseball this .season, and President .Dryfuss said there was nothing new In Wagner's rcase. BALL PLAYER HAS SMALLPOX, Cedar Rapids, la., April 10. Harry McKeen of Charles City, a member of 5 the Cedar Rapids Three I league team, iwas found to have smallpox this aft- ernoon and taken to the pesthouse. lEigth other players, all new men, have -been quarantined. It is probable a de tention hospital will be established at the ball park to allow the men to prac- tlce when the others are not on the !grounds. It is not believed the case .will seriously interfere with the plans of. the team. BURNS SENDS FIGHT FORFEIT. Manager Netll Says lie is Willing to Meet Jack Jobnson in Ring. New York. April 10. Tommy Burns Is not trying to avoid Jack Johnson. Instead he Is willing to sign at once to met him for a good side bet. This was the Information brought by "Billy" Neil, manager of Burns, who reached here today on the steamer Lusltania. He said he had been sent here especially to arrange a match with ohnson on behalf of Burns, and that .he wished not only to cover Johnson's for felt of $2,500, but to put up 52,500 ad ditional. He Bald he was willing to let the money remain In the hands of the stake-holder for twelve months. FOOTBALL CONTEST TO SWAN. Pittsburg Man Wins Annual Event at Yale Hobbs Is Next.

The final game of the sox-llllnl series here was even more sensation than that of yes terday. The score today was 1 to 0 In favor of the sox and was played In fast time, just one hour and three minutes being taken to run through with the nine innings. Nick Altrock was on the rubber for the sox, and he duplicated the feat of "Doc" White yes- Briefs. . Charlie Comiskey says that the White Sox cleared $7,000 on the trip to the coast. The St. Louis brewery workers de ny that their strike was brought about by the Browns signing "Rube waa dell. Manager Stalllngs of the' Newark Eastern League team Is after "Long John" Anderson, who la now with the Chicago Americans. While Charlie Starr Is not a Hans Wagner, still he is doing pretty good work for the Pirates and will doubtless improve. New York fans are banking on Chris ty Matthewson becoming the king of Ditchers once more. Matty looks to be all right. The Brooklyn and Boston teams are nnnnrir!? to make a hard fight to break Into the first division of the Na tional league this year., Freddy Parent of the White Sox has discarded his head protector. As a result the pitchers are now throwing at his noodle, which causes much dodg ing on the part of Frederick. It's a good thing "Ty" Cobb finally signed with Detroit. If 'he hadn't all of the Atlanta sporting scribes would have become anarchists and bomb throwers Arthur Irwin, manager of the Wash ington team in the new Union league, says there Isn't a Tri-State player strong enough for the Union league. He didn't say whether he meant strong enough in talk or ball playing. The umpires for the New England league this season will be M. J. Stock dale, E. J. Murphy, Mike O'Brien, Fran cis Connolly and Joe O'Brien. The Chicago Cubs generally get away with their exhibition games, but this season the minors have made them furnish the music while the little brothers danced the "Merry Widow." i V : 4 : ' ' 1 t ABOUT ADVERTISING No. 2. THE CANNON THAT MODERNIZED JAPAN. (BY HUBERT KAITMAX.) Business is no longer a man to man contact, In which the mer chant and the patron establish a personal bond, any more than battle is a hand-to-hand grapple where bone and muscle and sinew decide the outcome. Trade as well as war has changed in Its aspect both are aon fought at long range. Just as a present day army of heroes would have no opportunity to display the individual valor of its members, just so a merchant who counts upon his personal acquaintanceship for success is a relic of the past a bnslnesa dodo. Japan changed her policy of exclusion to foreigners after a fleet of warships battered down the Satsuma fortifications. The Samurai, who had hitherto considered their blades and bows good enough, dis covered that one cannon was mlghter than all the swords In creation if they could not get near enough to nse them. Japan profited by the lesson. She did not wait until farther ramparts were battered to pieces, but was satisfied with her one experience and proceeded to modernize her methods. The merchant who doesn't advertise is pretty much In the same position as that in which Japan stood w.hen her eyes were opened to the fact that times had changed. The long range publicity of a com petitor will as surely destroy your business as the cannon of the for eigners crumbled the walls at Satsuma. Unless you take the lesson to heart, unless you realise the importance of advertising, not only as a means of extending your business but for defending It as well, you must be prepared to face the consequences of a folly as great as that of a duelist who expects to survive In a contest In which his ad versary bears a sword twice the length of his own. Don't think that it's too late to begin, because there are so many stores which have had the advantage of years of cumulative advertis ing. The city is growing. It will grow ever more next year. It needs Increased trading facilities just as it's hungry for new neighborhoods. But it will never again support neighborhood stores. Newspaper advertising has eliminated the strength of being locally prominent, and five-cent street car fares have cut out the advantage of being "around the corner." A store five miles away can reach out through the columns of the daily newspaper and draw your next door neighbor to its aisles, while you sit by and see the people on your own block enticed away wUhout your being able to retaliate or supply new cus tomers to take their place. It Is not a question of your ability to stand the cost of advertising but of being able to survive without it.. The thing you have to con sider is not only an extension of your business but holding what you already have. . ' Advertising is an investment, the cost of which is In the same pro portion to its retnrns as seeds are to the harvest. And It is Just as preposterous for you to consider publicity as an expense as it would be for a farmer to hesitate over purchasing a fertilizer if he discovered that he could profitably increase his crops by employing It. ' (Copyright, 1903, by Tribune Company, Chicago.) "That Is odd, exceedingly so. I once heard a rumor but perhaps it is un fair to mention it in this connection. Yet it cannot hurt any one if I state that Isobel Baring antl he were well, how shall I pot it? at any rate, there was a lively summer hotel sort of at tachment between them." Isobel has never told me that," said Elsie, nerving herself for a personal disclosure which was obviously dis agreeable. "I own a small ranch near Quillota, and as there was a chance of copper feeing located there Mr. Baring advised me to employ Yentana as an expert prospector. Indeed, Mr. Baring himself sent Yentana to examine the property and report on it He came to see me. He told me there were no minerals of value on my land, but I could never free myself from him aft erward. In fact, I am running away from him now." She uttered the concluding words with a genuine indignation which forthwith evaporated in its uncon scious humor. Everybody laughed, even the girl herself, and Boyle grunted: Huh shows the beggar's good taste anyhow." Courtenay perhaps thought that If he encountered Yentana again he would take the opportunity to reason with him in the approved manner of thei high seas. And as there was no need to prolong a topic which caused Elsie any sort of . embarrassment he hasten ed to say: "I have brought names into the dis cussion largely to show what a doubt ful field Is opened once we begin to suspect without real cause. The only witness of any value we liave on board is Frascuelo, and his evidence merely goes to prove a secret design to inter fere with or control the trimming of the bunker. That particular hatch must be sealed and the specimens we have secured put away under lock and key. I feel assured that the remainder of our coal is above suspicion. We can carry the inquiry no further while we remain here. Now, Mr. Walker, you bav,e something of a more cheer ing nature to communicate, I think." The engineer grinned genially. "I don't wish to bind myself to a day or so. Miss Maxwell and gentle men,", he said, "but I've had a good look at the damage, an' I feel pwltty shu-aw I'll get up steam In one boil-aw within ten days or a fawtnight If 11 be a makeshift job at the best, be cause I have so few spa-aw fittin's n po cnance of makin' a castln', cut it bet a ye'aw's pay the Kansas gets a move on her undaw her own steam soon aftaw New Ye-aw's day." New Year's day I What a lump in the throat the words brought! In three days it would be Christmas, In 6even more the new year! Though from the beginning of the voyage they were pre pared to pass both festivals at sea, there was all the difference In tie world between a steady progress to ward home and friends and the pres ent plight of the Kansas. Death, too. had thrown its shadow over them. Some there were to whom the passing of the years would mean no more in this world. Others, the great majority of the ship's company, were probably hidden by the same eternal silence. The last 6ight they had of them was a dim vision of boats rushing into a chaos of angry seas and sheeted spray. But Courtenay would have none of these mournful memories. "Isn't that glorious news?' he cried. "Now, Chris. tobal, that motor trip in June through the Pyrenees looks feasible once more. And you, Miss Maxwell, though you have never quailed for an instant, can hope to. be in England In the spring. As for you, Tollemache, surely you will say that our prospects are 'fair at the least." "I would say more than that if It were not for these poisonous Indians," replied Tollemache. "Here they come now, a whole canoe load of 'em. I have never seen such rotters." And, Indeed, Francisco Suarez, detail ed to keep watch and ward over the ship until noon, ran up the companion and cried excitedly: "Four headmen have Just pulled off from Otter creek. They have missed me, I expect They will want me to go back. I beseech you, senor captain, not to give me up to them, but rather to send a bullet through tny miserable heart" "Tell him to calm himself." said Courtenay coolly when Chrlstobal had translated this flow of guttural Span ish. "He has no cause to fear them now. Let him nerve himself and show a bold front A palaver is the best thing that can happen. We must dis play all the arms we possess. Bid any of your Invalids who can stand upright show themselves, Chrlstobal. We must lift you outside, Boyle. Bring your camera, Miss Maxwell. If we could give these fellows a good picture of themselves it would scare them to death." Courtenay infected them all with his splendid optimism. It was with curi osity rather than dread vthat they watched the rapid approach of the ca noe and Its almost naked occupants. terous twist of the blades when within a cable's length of the ship and then circled slowly round her. The four men Jabbered In astonishingly loud voices. Suarez, who gathered the pur port of their talk, explained that they were discussing the best method of at tack. "The three younger men belong to the tribe I lived with." he said. "The old man sitting between the women is p I a stranger. I think he must have come rrom the north of the island with some of his friends, attracted by the smoke signals." "From the north? Is there a road?" asked Courtenay when he learned what Suarez was saying. "He would arrive In a canoe," was the answer. "The Indians venture out to sea In very bad weather. He prob ably passed the ship late last night, and, now I come to think of it, the ca noe which you captured is not familiar to me, whereas I know by sight every craft owned by the Feathered People. "How many do they possess?" "Twenty-three." These statements were disconcerting. Not only was it possible for the na tives to surround the Kansas with a whole swarm of ' men, but the mere number of their boats would render it exceedingly difficult to repel a com bined assault And nothing could be more truculent than the demeanor of the semlnude warriors. They pointed at each person they saw on the decks and made a tremendous row when they passed the canoe fastened along side. Despite their keen sight they evidently did not recognize Suarez. who now wore a cap and a suit of clothes taken from the locker of one of the missing stewards. The impudence of the Indians exas perated Courtenay. The sheer size of the Kansas should have awed them, he thought At that moment the rowers permit ted the canoe to swing round with the tide. One of the men stood up, and Elsie, who seized the chance of snap shotting the party, ran to the upper deck, so she did not overhear Courte. nay's smothered ejaculation. He was scrutinizing the savages through his glasses, and he had distinctly seen the ship's name painted on a small wa ter cask on which the Indian had been sitting. Tollemache made the same dramatic discovery. "Out of one of the ship's lifeboats, I suppose?" he said in a low tone to the captain. "Yes. Did you see the number?" "No. 3, I think." "I agree with you. That was the first lifeboat which got away." Chrlstobal, startled out of his wont ed sang frold, whispered in his turn: "Do you mean to say that one of the boats has fallen into the hands of these fiends?" "I am afraid so," replied Courtenay. "Of course that particular keg may have drifted ashore. In any case, it tells the fate of one section of the mutineers. Either the boat is swamp ed or the crew is now on the Island, and we know what that signifies." "Is there no chance of bribing these people Into friendliness or at least into a temporary truce?" "It is hard to decide. Tollemache and Suarez are best able to form an opinion. What do you say, Tolle mache?" "Not a bit of use. They are Insatia ble. The more you give the more they want The only way to deal with those rotters Is to stir them up with a Gatllng or a twelve pounder." Suarez wjien appealed to shook hi3 head. "You might as well try to fondle a hungry puma. I am the only man they have ever spared, and they spared me solely because they thought I gave them power over their enemies. If you had a cannon you might drive them off. As it is, we shall be com pelled to fight for our lives. They ar brave enough in their own way." The experience of the miner from Argentina was not to be gainsaid. Courtenay glanced up at Elsie. If aught were needed to complete the contrast between civilization and sav agery It was given by the comparison which the girl offered to the women in the canoe. The hot sun and the ab sence of wind had changed the tem perature from winter to summer. Aft er breakfast Elsie had donned a mus lin dress and a broad brimmed straw hat. Exposure to the weather had bronzed her skin to a delightful tint. Her nut brown hair framed a sweetly pretty face, and her clear blue eyes FOR MADAM AND MADEMOISELLE By BEATRICE IMOGENE HANSEN PRODrCT OP CROCHET HOOK. Linen buckles for wash belts or smart outing hats are the latest pro duct of the crochet hook. It is a part of the fad for fringes, tassels and cro chet lace. With an Irish crochet or plain blouse this buckle would go very nicely, or it could be worn with any wash gown. In silk it looks very handsome. To make it use either linen, cotton. silk or mercerized thread. No. 3 is a good size for this purpose and a No. 2 steel crochet hook. Begin be making a chain of 64 stitches and join the ends to form a ring. Now work wour double chain crochets in the first four chain stitches, then three double chain stitches, into the next single chain and 18 double chains in the next 18; three double chains in the next single chain. 12 double chains in the next 12 chain stitches, three double chains in the next single chain, 18 double chains in the next 18, one chain in eight double chains in the last eight chains; join the rectangular form of double chains at the end with a slip stitch. Repeat this series of double chains three times to make three more rows exactly the same, being careful to join each row before starting on the next At the corners each succeeding row will have to be widened. Do this by cro cheting three stitches in the center cor ner stitch the center one will be the middle of the three worked each time In the single stitch. A double crochet stitch makes a chain on the upper edge and in working the buckle be sure to take up both stitches of the chain in going around, else there will be a ridge at the top of each row on the right side and the buckle will not look smooth and firm. yet if a good, dark piece is not chosen, the result will be disastrous. The best shade is something more of a rich gold than anything else. It is neither light nor dark, and yet appears both, "and with the blue gown half princess, of cloth, banded with large folds of blue satin, with a touch of silver about the corsage, and It was really superb striking, graceful and full of beauti ful effects. The tight-fitting front all in one piece clung closely to the figure, and the back hung from between the shoulders in a box plait; not a Watteau plait, but a much smaller plait, placed midway, between should ers and waistline. MIROIR CREPE POPULAR. There is nothing better this spring for elaborate gowns than mlroir crepe All the dyes seem to have been called upon for this fabric and it will be made up Into a majority of the elabor ate house gowns that are used for oc casions. It is very lovely in black trimmed with bands of filet net well embroidered with slllc soutache. Flowered chiffons Ire again in favor and they have taken on the strong eastern tone which pervades the dye shops this year. Instead of the faint whites and blues and seashell pinks, they come in Egpy tlan reds with arabesques of Nile blue and old yellow and dull pink with here and there a flash of black. These are trimmed with fine white laces and deep belts of satin to match the ground tone. CHAPTER XI. rOURTENAY was mistaken in thinking that the savagei sougnt a parley.

For yokes, collars and cuffs fine tucked mallne net is now used to no small extent, and even threatens to temporarily take the place of all lace and chiffon In yokes and separate guimpes. This net is, of course, un usually fine and cheap, so that It is de llghtfully cool to wear, besides from an economical standpoint being a great advantage In that it can be . replaced whenever soiled at fan less expense than when - a costly yoke must be re plenished. A lining of chiffon and mousseline de sole is necessary In this thin net yoke and collar in order to keep the soft net from pulling out of shape and tearing. Practical Fashions LADIES' JUMPER DRESS. NOVEL COLOR EFFECT. Who with an eye to beauty would ever have thought that pale blue with brown would have been acceptable? Or purple with khaki? Or magenta with yellow? And yet every day we see striking instances of fine effect with such combinations. Khaki Is a deplorably plain shade of itself. When U came out Introduced by the English during the Boer war utility was the only item one could ever accuse it of. And yet the French lady had only to study Its possibilities a while to show what beautiful pictures could be made of gown or wraps in its tone. OXE DAY'S MEXC. BREAKFAST. Date Oatmeal and Cream.

No. 2350' SIZE , NAME ADDRESS, Elite seized the chance of snapshotting the party. , and red lips, slightly parted, smuea bewitchlngly at the men beneath. The camera In her hands added a holiday aspect to her appearance, an aspect which was unutterably disquieting in its relation to the muttered, forebod ings she bad broken in on. "I find the get-up of our visitors dis tinctly humorous," he said, "and I hope they are a bit scared, of us. Wo would prefer their room to their com pany." "I thought that Senor Suarez would hail them, as he can speak their lan guage. Perhaps he does not wish them to know he Is on board?" Now, Elsie had heard the man's Im passioned appeal when the Indians were first sighted, so Courtenay felt that she, too, was acting. A new direction was given to Elsie's thoughts by the somewhat scowling aspect of Christobal's face. He was looking at Courtenay In a manner which betokened certain displeasure. The Spaniard's cultivated cynicism was subjugated by a more powerful sentiment It seemed to Elsie that he envied Courtenay his youth and high spirits. Elsie dared not meet Courtenay's eyes. A flood of understanding had suddenly poured Its miraculous waters over her. Incidents unimportant In themselves, utterances which seemed to have no veiled intent at the time, rushed in upon her with overwhelming conviction. The middle aged physician suspected her of flirting with Courte nay and disapproved of it as strongly as she herself had condemned Isobel's admitted efforts in the same direction. The proceedings of the Indiana put a stop to any further conversation. The canoe had drifted closer to the ship. It was about eighty yards distant when the Indian who was on his feet sud denly whirled a sling and sent a stone crashing through the window of the music room. The heavy missile, which when picked up was found to weigh nearly half a pound, just missed Tollemache. The captain raised a double barreled .were too precious to be wasted at an Impossible range bnt the undeniable fact remained that the Indians meant to be aggressive. For a little time no one spoke. They heard the echoes of the gunshot , faintly thrown back by the nearest wall of rock. The regular plash of the paddles as the canoe sped shoreward was distinctly audible. They watched the tiny craft until it vanish ed round the wooded point which con cealed Otter creek. The muffled clang of a hammer broke me siience which had fallen on tbs. watchers from the ship. Walker had slipped back to his beloved engines. Had he not vowed that the massive pistons should again thrust forth their willing arms on or about New Year's day? He had forgotten the cannibals and their threats ere he was at the foot of the engine room ladder. Courte nay and Tollemache joined him; Chrls tobal went to the salon to visit his patients; Elsie was left with Mr. Boyle, who forthwith fell Into a doze, being worn out by the fresh air and the ex citement. Joey, having followed Courtenay to the one doorway In the ship which he could not enter, trotted back to find Elsie. She greeted him with enthu siasm. "Hail, friend." she said. "You at least are not jealous if 1 speak to your master, wherein you show your ex ceeding wisdom. Now, since you and I are persons of leisure, tell me, Joey, what we shall do to make ourselves useful." The dog was accustomed to being spoken to. He awaited developments. "It seems to me, Joey," she contin ued, "that Guglielmo Frascuelo is the one person on board who claims oar attention. There is a mystery to be solved. Bound up in it are my. poor Isobel, that beast Ventana and a drunken coal trimmer an odd assort ment to rub shouldets,- don't you think?" Joey still reserved his opinion. When the girl went to the forecastle by climb ing down the sailors' ladder to the low er deck he thought she was making a mistake, but she held her arms for his spring, and all was well. She had not previously visited the quarters set apart for the crew. Puzzled by the large number of small cabins with names of subordinate officers painted on them, she paused and cried loudly: "Are you there, Frascuelo? May I speak to you?" (To be Continued.)
