JOAN OF ARC IN THE SERVIAN ARMY
Servia has given the world an
other Joan of Arc, Molly Pitcher, or
Barbara Frietchle; another woman
whose name perhaps will ring
through the poetry and patriotism of
all lime when the war that now Is
rending Europe Is ended.
Her name is Sophia Yovanovitsch,
and when some Serb historian rises
to tel! the story of the struggle of
the little kingdom against the Turk
the name of Sophia will become a
household word In the Balkans.
When the war cloud that has hov
ered for twenty years over the Bal
kans broke and little Servia sprang
to arm i, Sophia was one of the most
ardent patriots. There were three
yourm nmn avowedly suitors for her
band, and no ermh of them she gave
the same order —not to ask her to
marry them or to seek her love un
til tl.‘- had voluntered and proved
their worthiness by serving the
country as soldiers in the array
Two both Serbs, at once rushed to the colors, but it is related in Bel
grad ; hat D dtri hesitated and finally was ordered by the girl either to
enlist r cnee or to renounce forever all thought of marriage with her. Also
it w:i! vid'nt that Dmitri loved Sophia more than he loved Servia, for he
enlisted. i
Sot c Yovanovltsch did not know that Dmitri had enlisted. Stirred by
her patriotism, she decided upon a plan. That night in her boudoir she
called her maid and, ignoring the protests of the maid, she clipped short
her great mass of IS ck hair, her crowning beauty, and, attiring herself in a
suit of clothes belonging to her younger brother, she went to Merderi, out
side of Belgrade, and enlisted as a private.
• ! ;• S r as an officer in the regiment, her brother a petty officer,
and n r sweetheart a private. One of the other men who sought her hand
in marriage also was a petty officer, and the girl, surrounded by friends, was
compelled to hide her Identity.
Not a suspicion of her sex was raised. She bore the hardships of the
journey through Bulgaria and the hard work of the regiment when it joined
the allied forces.

James Bryce, the British ambassa

bration of the tentenary of peace be
tween English-speaking peoples at a
dinner In New York the other night,
that nearly all wars had been due to
human folly or human passion.
He dwelt on how much better it
was to celebrate the wisdom which
had ended a war and avoided any sub
sequent conflict, rather then the want
of skill and wisdom which made war
possible.
Tbe ambassador described what
had been accomplished during his
official stay In Washington to remove
differences between the United States
and Great Britain, and to avoid dif
ferences in the future. He reviewed
the three arbitrations and several
treaties leading to a settlement of
the Canadian boundary dispute; the

Tenderfoot Captures Western
Girl From Many Rivals.
Preacher Who Was an Unsuccessful
Suitor for Her Hand Will Offi
ciate at Nuptials —Other
Swains Also Present.
Grand Junction, Colo. —For two
years scores of suitors have sought the
hand of pretty Molly Reese, queen of
the cowpunchers of three states. She
has cast aside the proffer of titles, has
looked with scorn upon wealth if she
had to take it with a husband and now
announces her engagement to a S3O
--month “tenderfoot” cowpuncher.
Hal Hanson of Boston is the lucky
“cattle wrangler” who will lead the
beautiful cowgirl of the plains to the
altar. A former suitor whom the girl
discarded will perform the ceremony,
and the wedding party will include
fourteen or more ardent swains who
had their “innings,” but failed to cap
ture the prize, while the scene of the
marriage will be the home of D. G.
Graden, cattle baron.
Hanson s proficiency with the mouth
harp won him his fiuancee. The melo
dious strains from the little wind in
strument with which he surreptitiuos
ly serenaded the object of his dreams
nightly turned the tide in his favor
over almost a score of other active
suitors.
The most determined rivals for the
pretty cowgirl’s hand in marriage were
four cowboys from the same camp.
Jim Hadley, Weston Hayes, Chris
Johnson and Bill Groves took turn
about each night for four months until
they learned it was no use. Henry
George James, a schoolteacher in the
Midelbow school, next tried his luck
and failed. Rev Henry Austin, a
Free Methodist preacher, was the next
victim, but he progressed no further
than four nightly calls and two sage
hens. Wilbur Jens, a schoolboy friend,
was next turned down to make room
for W. L, Henselman, a real estate
dealer of Gateway, Utah. Another
schoolteacher, a German nobleman,
going under the title of Baron von

RING SPREADS WOE
Midfortune Befalls Possessor of
Beautiful Diamond.
Mai Takes Solitaire From Woman’s
Finger and Pawns It —Constable
Defies Gun and Carries
Circlet to Court.
Denver, Colo.—Misfortune has be
fallen each for the last three posses
sors of a beautiful diamond ring which
mow rests in the safe at the office of
the district attorney.
One married woman mourns the loss
of the ring and loss of gentleman
friend; the aforesaid gentleman mourns
the fact that he will haVe to stand trial
on a charge of larceny; a pawnbroker
mourns the fact that the ring was
snatched from him by violence by a
constable and the constable, although
he is not doing any particular mourn
ing, declares that he came near losing
his life in an effort to capture the
ring.
It all started in a private dining
room of a downtown hotel. Jack
Chandor held the bejeweled hand of
Mrs. Estelle Croxson in his own. In
a playful mood he is alleged to have
slipped off the diamond ring and
placed it on his own finger, after
which he was unable, it is alleged, to
get the ring off. The lady w-aited for
several days and the ring was aot re
turned. Chandor was arrested and a
pawn ticket on the Newton Loan com
pany was found in his pocket.
Papers to get the ring .were sworn
out and a constable started to the shop
to get the ring. The constable says
he was refused the possession of the
ring and that when he tried to get out
of the safe the son of the proprietor
of the shop drew a gun on him. After
considerable skirmishing he declares
| h. succeeded in disarming the pawn
broker.
Upon the refusal of the pawnbroker
to opeu the safe the constable deliv
ered an ultimatum to him Either the
the safe must be opened and the ring
delivered to him or he would go
for 8 moving van and transport the
entire safe to the court of Justice
j Mills.
Pacing the possibility of losing a
safn the pawnbroker surrendered the
ring, and it was turned over to the
district attorney. Providing no fur-
I ther misfortune overtakes those in
possession of the stone, it will be
i used as evidence in the Chandor trial.

DID PIGEON FLY OVER SEA?
Chicagoans Believe Bird, Reported to
Have Made Trip. Must Have
Crossed on Ship.
Chicago.—Did a homing pigeon fly
across the Atlantic ocean? If it did,
how? These are questions for which
pigeon fanciers of Chicago are seeking
answers.
The debates arose from a press dis
patch received in Chicago. The mes
sage read:
“Montreal —Ernest Robinson of
Westmount received word that a
pigeon he imported and which escaped
has returned to England. It apparent
ly took twelve days to make the jour
ney.”
No pigeon has ever been known to
remain in air anything like the num
ber of days that would be required to
cross from Canada to England, ac
cording to members of the Lake View
Flying club, 213 G Fremont street.
The club has had a great deal of ex
perience with champion pigeons. A
member now' owns Chicago’s champion
“homer.” This bird. Guardsman, be
longs to Thomas Roell, 935 Webster
avenue. It was the only one of eigh
teen turned loose at the Johnson-Flynn
fight at Las Vegas, N. M., on the
Fourth of last July, to reach its home
in Chicago. The distance was 1,119
miles. Roell’s bird was in its loft on
the morning of August 2.
It is the opinion of members of the
club that the Canadian pigeon must
have crossed the Atlantic on a ship.
Members declare these birds must
sleep at night and feed each day, and
that they can not rest on water.
Chicago pigeons have been noted
for long-distance flights; so far as rec
lish poets place at least 264 books, 1
many of them containing good poetry,
in the hands of the public every year.
On this the Academy comments that
few of these 264 volumes contain good
poetry, many of them contain very
moderate verse, most of them are neg
ligible from a critical standpoint, and
a few of them contain doggerel that is
simply pathetic, written by persons
who never had and never will have
the remotest idea of what poetry is or
means that is to say, real poets are
few and their output very slim.
Hanson came here two years ago
from Boston. He worked in a stuffy
office as copyist until his • health

“Oh. It’s lots and lots of fun. I put

the funny faces they make when I

LEAGUE SELLS MANY EGGS
Philadelphia Women’s Body Meets
Big Demand at 24 Cents Dozen —
War Against Merchants.
Philadelphia, Pa.—One hundred and
fifty thousand dozen eggs were sold
one day recently at stations in vari

of the Housekeepers’ league in the
first day of their campaign to break
the corner which they assert has been
maintained by retail dealers. Eggs
that have been selling for from 27
cents to 49 cents a dozen were sold
by the women it 24 cents. Such was
the demand at the 40 stations in op
eration that only inability to secure
enough candlers prevented even a
larger number being disposed oi. An
extra force of cardlers was engaged
to work all night to have a supply
ready f or the following day.
Asa rule, the retailers maintained
their former prices for eggs. The
wholesale price for “strictly fresh”
eggs has dvanced here from $9.30 to

Cigarette Smoking Under Ban of Censorship

CIGARETTE smoking by women
has come under the ban of cen

Ice Skating a Rea! Fad in Society at Capital
THAT part of Washington society
which delights in outdoor winter
sports has started a movement to dis

of Interested men and women for a
meeting which was held In the ban
quet hall of one of the large hotels.
It Is hoped the feeble efforts of “Jack
Frost” In Washington may be supple
mented and real ice skating provided
for those who wish.
The tidal basin at the foot of the
Washington monument is unsafe at
best, and then there are only a few
days’ skating on it through the win

somewhat because of the almost un
precedented cold w r eather in this re

in Washington, who come from all
parts of the world. Most of them be

not a few are people who have spent
•the greater part of their lives in the
northern part of the United States.
Among those interested in the
