man in his own dominions, and that
he has introduced more changes ir
the fashion of men's dress than an.'
of his predecessors on the throne
To mention only a few of these roya
fashions, it was he who first tv
changed the uncomfortable tight
trousers and enormous top toots
which were the orthodox spertinj
costume forty years or so ago, for the
comfortable and workmanlike knick
erbockers and worsted stocking;
which are so universal today. We
owe to him the neat and attractive
Norfolk suit, the dress jacket, which
is such an improvement in ease and
comfort on the long-tailed coat; the
single-breasted frock coat, the Ham
burg hat and many another innova
tion suggested by his common sense
and good taste. In fact, for forty

tated masculin e fashions to the

vinced 1 ate too rapidly, and failed to
masticate my food properly.
“The result was that I found myself,
a few years ago, afflicted with ailments
of the stomach and kidneys, which in
terfered seriously with my business.
“At last I took the advice of friends
and began to eat Grape-Nuts instead of
the heavy meats, etc., that had consti
tuted my former diet.
“I found that I was at once benefited
by the change, that I was soon relieved
from (he heart-burn and the ir.digest’on
that used to follow my meals, that the
pains in my back from my kidney af
fection had ceased, showing that those
organs had been healed, and that my
nerves, which used to Iw unsteady, and
my brain, which was slow and lethargic
from a heavy diet of meats and greasy
foods, had, not in a moment, but grad

restored to normal efficiency. Now
every nerve is steady and my brain
and thinking faculties are quicker and
more acute than for years past.

The Czar of Russia Draws When and
What He Pleases—The Emperor of
Germany Receives a Salary of $500,-

paid their salaries varies consider
The Emperor of Russia, for in
stance, says Pearson’s Weekly, is the
only European sovereign who is en
titled to draw on the revenues of the
country over which be rule's when
ever he pleases and to almost an un
limited extent.
All the vast sum accruing from va
rious forms of taxation in Russia are
banked to the credit of two officials
named fho Imperial Treasurers, who
iischarge all the liabilities of the Rus
sian Government.
The Czar, however, has the first
call upon the money paid into the
imperial treasury and draws upon it
whenever he wishes by simply direct
ing the treasury officials to lodge so
ranch money to his private account,
giving them & vouchor for the
Under the Russian constitution the
Czar is entitled to receive a seventh
share of the revenue of the country,
and though he, as a matter of fact,
never draws upon the treasury to this
extent, the Emperor fo Russia is yet
by far the best paid and wealthiest
of European monarchs.
The Emperor of Germany Is in re
ceipt of a salary of £IOO.OOO per an
num from the State, but His Imperial
.Majesty has, of course, many other
ways of supplementing this pay,
which would be a very poor one for
the sovereign of a great power.
The salary is paid into the Emper
or’s private banking account twice a
y ar, the check for it being signed
by no fewer than seven officials, and
is finally indorsed by the Kaiser him
The Emperor also receives a “mili
tary and naval’’ allowance, • which
amounts to a big sum, and the ex
penses in connection with the main
tenance of the royal household at
Potsdam are paid quarterly by the
State treasury.
King Edward receives a quarterly
check from the Paymaster General
for his salary as monarch; the check
is what is known as a negotiable re
ceipt, and is sent to the keeper of the
privy purse, by whom it is signed on
behalf of the King, and then lodged
to Cm credit of his Majesty’s private
banking account.
The Emperor of Austria is put to
some personal inconvenience before
he can obtain his salary, owing to the
iove of maintaining ancient customs
and ceremonials that prevail in the
Austrian court.
Un the Ist of June and Ist of De
cember the Austrian monarch pays
a visit to the office of the State treas
ury, where he is received by three
important officials.
One of these officials then reads
out a document to the monarch, re
minding him of the many duties he
owes to the State, and exhorting him
to the faithful performance of the
The document concludes with a
mention if amount is sufficient,
and on his replying to the question in
the affirmative, is given a receipt to
Mgn for the money, which is, in due
course, lodged to tiro credit of the
imperial account.
The King of Portugal’s salary is
never paid to him direct, but is vested
,u the care of throe officials, upon
whom the King can draw whenever
tie requires money.
This is an arrangement to which
the King of Portugal has a distinct
objection, but as it is a very old
established custom his Majesty would
probably have some difficulty in hav
ing it altered.
Each of the three purse keepers,
as these officials are called, receives
£SUO per annum, which the King of
Portugal has to pay out of his own
pocket, so that the arrangement costs
the King £1 500 a year, which could
be very easily saved by the dismissal
of such entirely needless officials as
the purse keeper.
The Sultan of Turkey has no allow
a nee or salary; he simply informs the
Grand Vizier when he wants money,
and that official has to see that the
amount required is forthcoming
promptly, otherwise it is more than
likely he might lose his head.

If, as the records of the interstate
commerce commission show, the ma
jority of the injuries and fatalities on
our railroads are due to collisions and
derailments; and if, as unfortunately
seems to be the case, the management
of our railroads is unable to reduce
the number of accidents of this kind;
in other words, if derailments and col
lisions are, under existing conditions,
an inevitable feature of modern rail
roading, then perhaps the best thing
we can do is to render our roll in 5
stock, and particularly our passenger
cars, as collision-proof as possible.
The steel car is collision-proof. A
few years ago a certain company be
gan to build steel freight cars; and, of
course, the first of these that were
sent out upon the road were not long
in running into a smash-up. Here
they demonstrated, at once, their
ability to stand an amount of pound
ing, crushing and wrenching which
would reduce a wooden car to the pro
verbial kindling wood. After such a
collision, what was left of the wooden
cars was left on the spot; but the
steal cars were unearthed from the
wreckage of their older and frailer
brothers; their trucks were replaced
beneath them, and they were hauled
off to the car shops to have tho kinks
taken out of them.
In a heavy collision it Is the tele
scoping of one car Into another that
kills and wounds the passengers; but
steel cars cannot telescope. Even
with the momentum of a heavy train
behind it. the platform of the telescop
ing car is unable to shear its way
through the vertical steel posts (angle
irons, channels, or T-irons), which
form the frame of the car body. Fol
lowing the line of least resistance,
steel cars, in such collisicji, will slide
past each other, or be slewed around
and rolled to the side of the track. In
this case the injuries to the passen
gers will be only such as are due to
their being thrown violently around,
and will generally be limited to cuts
and bruises. The all-steel cars of the
New York subway, and the composite
cars with steel underframes, have
probably already saved more lives and
limbs of the-public than the operating
company would care to admit. Had
the collisions which have already oc
curred taken place between wooden
cars of the old type, the casualty list
would have been very much larger.
The interstate commerce ’ commis
sion has accomplished a splendid
work in enforcing automatic coupling
and the application of the air brake.
It may be too early yet, but the time
is surely coming when the same com
mission will urge or enforce upon our
railroads the use of steel cars. For
obvious reasons such a great and ex
pensive change could only be brought
about gradually; but it will surely
come, probably by the voluntary act
of the railroads, and as the result of a
growing appreciation of the safety and
ultimate economy of this durable form
of construction.—Scientific American.
What is Frequently Paid for a Coat,
Boa and Muff in New York.
I find that six thousand dollars for a
sable coat is only a fair price, in fact
it is a very low price for a coat of fine
sable. As witness this talk that I
had the other day with New York’s
leading furrier:
“Can you show me a good sablo
coat?” 1 inquired.
“Russian sable?” ho asked.
“Yes,” said I, “something especially
fine—say about six thousand del*
He smiled, “We haven’t anything
made up that 1 would call especially
fine. We have a rather short coat
of rather light skins, moderate qual
ify, that will cost ten thousand dol
“Ten thousand dollars!” I exclaim
ed. “Then what would a good coat
He continued to smile and produced
a number of fine skins the real im
perial sable, very dark with silver
lights playing through the soft fur.
And be showed me the price marks,
five hundred and fifty dollars a skin,
about ten dollars a square inch.
“This is the best Siberian sable,”
he went on. “A coat of moderate
length, say SO inches, requires 60
skins and —”
“Sixty times five hundred and fifty,”
I murmured.
“Thirty-three thousand dollars,
which includes the cost of making.
“And a longer coat?” I gasped.
“One reaching to a lady's ankles
would require, say 80 skins, that is
forty-four thousand dollars,” he re
plied rather matter-of-fact.
“And you sell coats at such prices?”
I continued in amazement.
“We sell this kind of sable as fast
as we can get it. The best skins are
very scarce.”
“And a muff?” I asked, meekly,
“just a muff?”
“Five skins,” said he. “twenty-seven
hundred and fifty dollars, q here s one
in tho show case.”
“And a boa? A little boa?”
“Four skins at least, that is twenty
two hundred dollars.”
Here then evidently I erred not on
the side of exaggeration but cf under
statement; I put down thirty thousand
dollars as the maximum yearly sum
that a few New York women spend on
dress, including everything, whereas
nearly fifty thousand dollars may be
spent simply for a fur coat with boa
and muff!— Cleveland Moffett in Suc
cess Magazine.

I happened to be strolling through

would have melted a stone.

Pickpocket's Hand m a Mole Trap.
Louis Hugon, a young pickpocket ol
seventeen, had a most unfortunate ex
perience this afternoon while exercis
ing his profession.
A crowd had assembled around a
fallen horse in the Place d'ltalie, and
Hugon saw a lady whose bulging pock
ets offered all kinds of tempting pos
sibilities. Without further ado he
deftly introduced his hand, but in
stead of grasping the expected purse
found his finger-securely caught in a
new mole trap which the lady had
just purchased. With Spartan-like
heroism he uttered no cry, but tried
to withdraw his hand. The lady, bow
ever, became conscious that somethin?
was wrong, and Hugon was seized by
the bystanders and handed over to the
police. The latter took him to the
Hospital de la Pitie, where the ampu
talion of his finger was adjudged nec
essary.—Paris correspondence Lon

Testifying before the Senate Com
mittee at Washington, Interstate Com
merce Commissioner Pronty said in
lisenssing the proposition to give that
commission the power to regulate rail
way rates:
“I think the railways honld make
their own rates. I think rlipy should
be allowed to develop their own busi
ness. I have never advocated any
law, and I am not now in favor of any
law, which would put the rate making
power into the hands of any commis
sion or any court. While it may be
necessary to do that some time, while
that is done in some States at the
present time, while it is done in some
countries, I am opposed to It. The
railway rate is property. It is all the
property that the railway has got. The
rest of its property is not good for
anything unless it can charge a rate.
Now it has always seemed to me that
when a rate was fixed, if that rate was
an unreasonable rate, it deprives the
railroad company of its property pro
tanto. It is not necessary that yon
should confiscate the property of a
railroad; it is not necessary (hat yon
should say that it shall not earn throe
per cent, or four per cent. 'When you
put in a rate that is inherently un
reasonable, you have deprived that
company of its rights, of its property*,
