13 OVER $5010 ON BODY OF ASH1 Watch Stopped at 3:20 Practi cally All Others at 2:10 Smuggled Diamonds Found. Halifax, Max 2. Hope still flutters n the hearts of those who remain hare eeeklntr to Identify us their dead toe uti les brought from the scone of the Titan Jc'a wreck by the cablo steamer Mnekn -liennet. In a money belt which Col. John Jncob .Astor woro were two thousand dollars In Bold and besides this Mtm he had Keourltles find Jewelry which thoso on the iMockay-Bonnett ostlmnted to be worth from $00,000 to $7f.,O00. Gerald Ross, elec trician on tho Mnckay-Ronnett, said; "I eaw tho recover' of Colonel Asfor's tofly. Llko tho othors It was floating buoyed by a ltfo belt. Doth arms extend ed upwards. The face was swollen, one jaw was Injured. Tils body wns clothed In a business suit nnd tan shoes. His Witch, a costly thins, studded with dla nionds, was dangling from his pocket. It liad stopped at 3:20. Practically all the other watches on bodies wo recovered had stopped at I '10. Ills watch chain was of platinum nnd so were tho setting of tho rings he woro." Ross says that, by somo remarkable coincidence, every male body recovered was floating face down and every female faco up. The heads of nil were raised, lloss corroborated tho only undcrtakor on the cablo ship In the statement that muny of tho bodies burled at sea were recognizable nnd well preserved. 8AW DESTROYING ICERERO. Tho Mackay-Rennett's crew saw the ceberg which sent the Titanic to her loom. They say tho berg w "vory long," but not more than 50 feet of It projected from the water. Thcro was a Jagged hole In Its side In which tho cb1e hip could liavo berthed. "Tho Titanic gave the berg a hard bump," said Ross. "All kinds of wreck age waa floating around tho berg. Wo jloked up a deck chair or two as sou venirs. "Captain Larmier felt as bndly as any one to bo obliged to put any bodies back Into the sea, but what was he to do when we were overcrowded and lacked accom modations? "Wo camo across a diamond smuggler, n Swede, traveling In the steerage. He "was among tho 313 consigned to ocoan proves. I felt a peculiar hard lump In the back of his coat. I told my workmate, nnd we ripped the lining and found a half dozen diamonds sewn up there. This man was not among those Identified and bur led. Tho diamonds were turned over to the purser with other valuables taken from the unidentified bodies, all placed In the custody of tho White Star line. EFFECTS CAREFULLY PRESERVED. "Tho property taken from unidentified jiersons wero placed In little white bags Clearing numbers similar to the body label. The steamship company undoubt edly will have considerable miscellaneous property for which no heirs can ever ap ply. Take the diamonds, for Instance. There can be no claimant for them, Miroly. "Many of the women were In evening powns. We picked up one young married couple, Mr. and Mrs. A. Robins, the only Jiusnand and wife found. She woro a Veautlful low-neck dress, and around her neck wns a costly string of pearls." A flaxen-haired little boy. with a face like a cherub, remains unidentified. He reemed to be sleeping. His widow has Identified Stanley H. Fox's body and took charge of It. No trace of Jacques Futrelle, the nove Jist, was found, unless his body has been picked up by the Mlnta. Nor has any trace of Samuel Ouirsenhelm been found. WILLIAM WIDENER STARTS HOME. William M. Wldener and his friends, who had been here nearly a week In their private car, left at eight o'clock last evening. Mr. Wldener went home u a doubtful state of mind as to whether It was the body of his father, Oeorgo JJ. Wldener of Philadelphia, which was Imrled at sea, as officially llstod, or his father's valet, Edward Keating. "From the descriptions which I was Able to obtain from tho crew of tho fclackny-Ucnnott," said Mr. Wldener, "I em inclined to think it was tho body of the valet and that father's body has not Veen found. Keating may havo had some ct father's clothing on. Tho body burled flitters from father's build, and, further more, a buttonhook was found In a poc ket, something Kentlng always had with Mm " A reward of $1,000 was yesterday posted iby Samuel II. Wallack of Now York, for tho recovery of tho body of Henry B. Dlarrls, the thontrlc.il manager, of which nothing has been heard to date. Major Wanton Wlnshlp, U. S.

"Jt Is especially noticeable that there wero two 'Ilutts' among tho names of thoso locovered." ho bald, "but I have jnade careful Inquiry, and neither of them appears to havo been Major Butt. There Is nothing I can do but wait for tho .Mlnla." BODIES WIDEIA- SCATTERED.

Ho has been superin tendent ot the schools of Castloton and West Rutland the last four years. MASSACHUSETTS ON TRIAL. Hoir the Presidential Primary nnd Its Effect nre Viewed In C.'ntinda. (From tho Montronl Witness.) "Mr. President," said Daniel Webster In 1830 addressing the United States Sen ate, "Mr. President, I will make no en comium upon Massachusetts. There sho Is. Roholil her and judgo for yourselves." Massachusetts has Just voted, nnd now people from ono end of the country to tho other nro weighing that voto and judging Massachusetts. In one party a political llrebrand, whose l.ingunno Is that of tho prize ring, was pitted against a sober, up. J'lght, stcndy-golng statesman. In tho other a man who ha.s of late been con sidered more as a circus clown than as a statesman, whose driving of a ilr of Missouri mules up Pennsylvania avenue bus bocn characteristic of hl.s whole career, was pitted against a college presi dent and eminent author. Tho republi cans of Massachusetts named halt their delegates for the firebrand, whllo tho Democrats of the same stately old Stato voted two to one for the burlcsqucr. Massachusetts would seem to be tired of the serious tragedy nr resttnlned dramas of politics. Each require too much thought, too slow an action. For her tho vaudnvlllo full of entertainment and every minute filled with excitement. To tho extent of their power the common people of Massachusetts havo chosen the ready reckless, careless talker. Tho ap peal was to tho uneducated, and like Illi nois tho uneducated of the .State being In tho majority, have named their candi date. Tho people of the t'nlted States have hitherto escaped an undlgnllied selection for president. When Mr. Roosevelt was her cholco before, it was before ho had entered on his present career of ns"ault j upon tho Judiciary. Whence then Is his popularity with the disinterested adher ents of that party which at one time in cluded only the steady-going elements of the population? Hy themselves It Is put down to a revolt against the existing political machinery. Mr Roosevelt's leudlng appeal has been for the direct primary, a voto on the part of the electors ol each locality on tho choice of a prefer ential candidate, without the Intermedia tion of caucuses and committees. In other words, In future the only way for a man to get nominated for the presi dency would be by a three years' cam paign of self-adwrtis-cment by mule driving, elephant shunting and so forth. The present retnedv for machine rule Is a vain one. Mr. Roosevelt In his attempt two yeais ago to control the New York machine used boss "aethods In as bare faced manner as any other ever did. Hut the evil is so fully realized that the peo ple would, It seems, prefer anything In tho world to the present system of mani pulation by professional politicians con trolled by Interests that furnish the ex penses, which Is tho greatest possible travesty on popular government. The preference of the democrats for Mr. Champ Clark, however, admits of no such pubtlc-sprrlted explanation. Mr. Woodrow Wilson, tho man agnln.st whom they have voted two to one, wns known as an enemy of, and In his own State of New Jersey u victor over, machine poll tics, while Mr. Clark Is a party man first, last and nil tho time. Taking tho two phenomena together It would seem as though In these days of noisy publicity, oratory and a stirring program aro the first requisites of a presidential candi date. As the primaries advance one can not but feel that It Is less the candidates than the people who nre on trial. It Is such u test of the direct method of elec tion as will afford a powerful argument for tho checks and counter checks de vised by tho planners of the constitution. It will bo Impossible now to revert to those, but much might bo done towards dethroning the machlno and party ruin generally, by resorting to tho principle of proportional voting Tho breaking up of parties, which seems to be In process, would afford a good occasion for such a reform. While tho voto makes the nomination of Mr. Taft less probable, it strongly em phasizes the probability that should he get tho nomination he would ho hope lessly beaten for tho presidency. While It adds half the State's delegates to the Roosevelt column, It also reveals his weakness. The present indications ore that neither stands a good chaneo against a united Democratic party. Tho contest nns been bo extremely bitter anil personal that neither Mr. Taft nor Mr. Roosovelt can reasonably hope for tho support of tho followers of tho ono of them thnt is defeated nt the convention. The demo crats have for tho last 1'i years been In the habit of following a demagogue so that thrlr choice so far ns It has been expressed Is not Inconsistent, but If they must still follow a domagoguo Instead of ono of tho three worthy men of tried record, Mr. Wilson. Mr. Harmon or Mr. Fnderivood, who nre ttt their service, why not still cling to tho ono and only 'peerless one,' and for a fourth time noniinato tho man who claims to havo Initiated all tho modern reform proposals? Ho Is at nil events respeetnblo and vlr tuaiiB. IMPOIITINt; POTATOES. (From tho Christian Herald.) Thn poor potato crop this year has mado It necessary to look abroad for part of tho supply for homo consump tion. Tho steamship Minnehaha the oth er day brought from Europe six thouMind tons of potntoes for tho American mar ket. In 1908 wo Unpolled R,3S3,909 bushels. In 1909 we bought abroad but 353,?)S bushels. Somo idea of tho Importance of the potato us a staple article, of food may bo had when It Is known that In 1910 the United States raised .13S,SU,000 biibhcls, valued nt $1S7,98o,OiiO. Thu world's crop In 19u9 amounted to S,.VJ3,. StH.000 bushels, of which North America produced 477,M!,000 bushels and Europe 4,90,1M.OOO. And It Is Interesting to nolo that tho grout Industrial State ot New York in 1910 raited 4l,G7C,oon bushels, loading all other States. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maine and Wisconsin ranked next In order named. Wisconsin's crop was 3l,700,o() bushels.

"Archie liutt's character was single, simple, straightforward nnd Incapable of Intrigue. A clear sense of humor lightened his llfo and thoso nbout him.

When the potatoes have been cooked and drained, a little melted butter should be poured over them. Tho mint adds a most delicate but not at all obtrusive llnvor. Instead of trying to peel now potatoes tho English cook removes the tklns by rubbing them very hard with an extremu ly stilt brush. This leaves them both white, and smooth, and obviates tho ne cessity of peeling them after cooking. CHESTNUT CREAM.

We will now find dandelions coming to tholr glory nnd occasionally they will bo sold for very low prices, yet with more of profit to the dealers than to the producers In many cases when lowest prices are available. DANDELION GREENS. The picking over and denning of dan delions, especially If very small and not will grown us to thrift nnd tenderness, Is sometimes moiv labor than profit, Tho huge leaved, thriftily grown and frosh dandilloim mo very line, and some prefer Ilia' not a parti le of tho root shall be allowed to runulu, but tho Uv.vcs oitl). SCIENCE If they aro largo nnd cleanly cultivated, or even good wild ones, I prefer that there should be about a quarter Inch of the root left on each plant, and that Is peeled easily by a circular motion ol tho knife, leaving this small central por tion of the root just enough to hold the plant together nnd also to slightly In crease tho bitter taste. After picking over, cleaning tho roots, if any portion of root Is left, and dis carding all defective or excessively dirty ones, we will need to wash in clear water soveral times, until satisfied that th gieens are thoroughly clean. For a peck of dandelions put In a boiler and boll until tender, putting In as much or as llttlo water ns you deem besi The cooking teachers sometimes teach that spinach should be boiled with no water beyond that which cllncs to It from washing, and stir with a fork nil the time to prevent burning. This would seem to Imply that life is very long and very little to .do, while to use from a gill to a pint or more of wnier for a peck ot dandelions seems to me much more acceptable and far less needless trouble. CARAMEL CAKES. Cream one-fourth oup of butter, add one cup of granulated sugar, gradually. Add the beaten yolks of two egss. Mix nnd sift one and one-half cups ot flour with two teaspoons of baking powder and add alternately with one-half cup of milk. Fold In the stiffly beaten whltts of tho eggs nnd bake In small cakes. Holl three-fourths cup of thin creaic with one-half cup of sugar and one table, spoon of butter until It threads, removt from the fire, stir In one teaspoon ol vanilla nnd one-fourth cup ot Sugar burnt to a caramel, and spiead on this cakes u hen cool. SAVE THE LIQUID. The old fashioned manner of boiling wns from a pint to nearly a quart of water, and then skim out tho dandollons with such liquid as adheres to them and servo without further preparation or waste of either material or labor. A little vinegar Is usunlly poured over on the plate. Tho liquid In whioh tho greens were bolkd makes a nice and healthful drink, and thai tho same effect Is se cured by skimming out as would be by draining, and tho Additional amount of water more than the newer style of boil ing gives a rinsing out of tho excess of bitter taste, whllo leaving a very good drink, unless there has been boiled too much fat pork with the dandelions. SERVING DRY. Most authorities advocate draining, the greens and then to chop and season I with salt, pepper and buttor with a table spoon of vinegar or the juice of half a lemon. Hard boiled eggs aro sometimes used as a garnish, nnd majiy ways ot adding labor and lucroaslns cost may be found, with usually very poor results for the amount of added time and ex. ptno beyond simple, plain boiled greens SALTING DANDELIONS FOR WINTER It Is claimed that dandelions can be salted for winter use with vory satis factory results and thcro seems no re.i son to doubt this claim. The method ad vised is ns follows: Use a. hard wood butter tub Put It llrst a layer of coarsc-tHie talt. then a layer of dandelions, then salt to entirely cover each laver of dnr.de1lon. The should be picked over nnd cleaned and washed and well drained. There will be moisture enough on them. Alternate lay ers of each until tub Is full, then pu on top of nil a big pinto or piece of cir cular hard wood size ot big dinner plate I'm a couple of clean bricks on top o' plate so to press the dandelions down and cans., the brine, which will form, to en tlrely covtr tho dandelions. Ho sure and have tho top layer of salt nnd not a dan delion in sight. When needed for use, take the dan delions out, wash and sonjc over night, In cold, fresh water. Then they v.ili treMi'. m up very nlcelj . LITTLE 3PONCE CAKiE. Heat ono oe.g, mid two level table spoons of tlno granulated sugar nnd beat until ver llcht.
