ij In tho political world tho big even
z Was of course the driving of Klni
Manuel out of Portugal and the estab
1 Ilshment of u republic Compared to
fa i Tflie magnitude of the event this trans
1 > w formation was accompanied by a llttl
bloodshed The affair had Its splco of
Y jjcandal as do most royal perform
ances It appears that a Parl lan
v dancer of the namo of Gaby Deslyi
i took the youthful monarchs eye with
tho result that Manuel spent much
line In Purls and Gaby sojourned not
Infrequently In Lisbon Ordinarily this
might not have excited comment bo
Ing quite tho usual thing among kings

at monarchy anyway the gossip played
C its part As a result Mlle Gaby wll

George V In England an event thai
bad no Influence politically and but
little In any other way Of far grcatei
importance were the two British par
I liamentary elections both resulting In
Liberal coalition victories by practl
sally the same majorities The first
of theso forced through tho house of
lords the single tax budget and the
second practically sealed the fato of
I tho peers and decreed some form ol
Irish home rule Taken together these
two victories constitute tho most slg
VJri i triumph for the progressive side
witnessed In England since the adop
tlon of the reform bill
China Also Awakened
Perhaps the third event In Impor
tance In foreign politics was the meet
ing of tho Chinese senate definitely
marking the beginning of parliamen
tary government In the Celestial King
dom the last great nation that had
held out against the rising tide of de
mocracy When China has a parlla
ment and quits wearing pigtails the
millennium will be waiting Just around
tho corner
Other notable political happenings
abroad were tho establishment of the
bandbox kingdom of Montenegro the
fight to separate church and state In
Spain tho Mexican uprising and the
wallowing of Korea by Japan The
Land of tho Morning Calm is being
< given such a touch of high life by the

Cook Controversy Renewed
In this connection It Is worthy of
note that Professor Parker returned
from his Mount McKlnley expedition
without having climbed the mountain
but bringing back photographs of the

This Was the Original Dress of the
Scottish Highlander
Tho original dress or the highlander
was the belted plaid This was a piece
of tartan cloth two yards broad am
four long which was drawn around
tho waist in nicely adjusted folds and
tightly buckled with a belt Tho lower
part came down to tho knees in much
I the sumo manner as tho modern kill
while tho upper part was drawn ui
and adjusted to tho loft shoulder so >
I that tho right arm might bo perfectly
free This upper part was tho plaid
which was used as a covering for the
shoulders and body In wet weather
and when tho uso of both arms was
required It was fastened across the
breast with a brooch often curiously
I enriched A brooch was also used to
fasten the plaid on tho loft shoulder
To nttlro himself In the belted plaid
required on the part of tho highlander
I no small amount of dexterity The <
usual way was to lay It on tho floor
and after carefully arranging the
folds to Ho down upon It and then
I buckle It on Tho lower end was fas
tened at tho right hip Tho utility of
such a dress in tho highlands Is ob
vioua for tho plaid rendered tho mar
Indifferent to storms and prepared t
pass a night In tho open air In the
most Inclement weather whllo the
