Taken Far on Litter—English Mis sionaries Minister to Dying Ameri can When the French Deny Her Needful Aid. Chicago —A drafnatffc account of the death of May Allport, the Chicago pianists, in a lonely sun-baked town on the edge of the Sahara desert, is told in mails received by her friends In Chicago. Brief mention was made of Miss AlfporCs death in tfif Chicago newspapers of April 20. She had ex pired in Bfax, Tunisia, on April 18, and had been buried the following day. ..Miss All port left Chicago some years ago to travel In Italy. She spent a large part of her time at the little town of Taormina, under the shadow of Mount Aetna and close to the ex qulsite classical remains Which draw many strangers to Sicily. In March of the present year Miss Allport went alone across the Mediterranean from Palermo to Africa. Prom Tunis she w'ent along the coast to Susa, thence inland to Kalra wan, Gafsa, and Tozeur (Tozer); thence to Sfax on the gulf of Gabes, and thence she ventured, in company with a casually met Englishwoman — too far Into the desert —to Gabes at the lower end of the gulf, called by the ancients Syrtls Minor. Here, among the Arabs and Italian sailors and merchants, she was taken too sick to return unaided, and here her companion left her. Fortunately an English doctor —his name is Thomas G. Churcher —journeying with his wife through Gabes from Sfax to the oasis of Medenine, heard of the American woman sick at the little French Hotel des Colonies and came to her rescue. Recognizing the serious character of her Illness, he called In the post sur geon as a consultant and endeavored to secure her admission to the French army hospital. Failing in his effort, rather than desert a woman in dis tress, he secured a covered automo bile, fitted it with a comfortable mat tress, and carried her back with him to his own home, la Sfax- —a distance of nearly 100 miles. On reaching the home of this Eng lishman—-he and his wife are medical missionaries—she seemed brighter for the change and full of gratitude, but the long journey over the desert proved too much for her, and she died while her missionary friends prayed by her bedside. She was buried in Sfax, in the French cemetery, until such a time as the French colonial department will issue a permit for the removal of her body to her own country. Since 1875 Miss Allport’s figure and influence were well known in the Chi cago musical world. She was one of BOOMS AFTER FLOOD Dayton, 0., Is on Road to Pros perity Again. Everybody in One Davastated Town Working, and Wages Are Higher Than They Were Ever Known to Be Before. Dayton, O. —Dayton is taking care of herself again. Only a few soldiers are left doing police duty. Military law is theoretically in force, and Adjt. Gen. George H. Wood Is still here. The curfew has become a tech nicality, and citizens may go abroad till 11 o’clock each night. The saloons are open through the day. Major Rhoades of the United States army has gone, leaving the work of sanitation and cleaning in the hands of the city authorities. Relief proc esses have com© to a standstill, ex cept for the work of the Red Cross, under Dr. Edward T. Devine of New York. The factories started running in an Incredibly short time after the flood. Their accumulation of orders in sures rush work and overtime all sum mer. With everybody working, wages higher than ever known, and with 90- GOO persons having lost part or all of their household goods and clothing, there could be no question about busi ness. Dayton is already a boom town, and must continue to be the busiest city in the United States for many months to come. ~ Every merchant who has been able to get new’ stock has been doing a volume of business from 40 to 60 per cent .greater than at the correspond ing time last year—and this with tough board counters, emergency fix tures, and demoralized sales forces. Treasury department officials sent her© to restore financial operations told disheartened merchants from the first that they would turn their stock more times in the next six months than they ordinarily did in five years. The first month's sales have con vinced' most of them that this was a correct prediction. Every merchant of good reputation has received astonishing favors from houses from which he buys. Many have canceled old accounts; nearly all have extended their credit Cltl sens have been advised not to avail themselves of the bankruptcy law, and none so far have done so. Thousands of carpenters, plasterers and painters are at work. There is still much mud and debris in the streets, though nearly 20,000 wagon loads have been hauled away.

LOSES FOOT TO SAVE BABY Tot Snatched From Danger by Its Mother While Would-Be Rescuer Is Run Down. Minneapolis.—A baby was snatched from under the wheels of a Milwau kee passenger train, and as a result of the incident W. J. Morrison, a brakeraan, is in a hospital seriously in jured Morrison’s right foot was cut off when he tried to save the life of Elsie Harvey, three-years-old daughter of Mrs. C. E. Harvey of Chicago.

At McKinley park, devastated by ’the flood, there was a huge bonfire covering two city blocks, with fire fighting apparatus surround ing it. It is contended by a large element that the work of cleaning has been hampered by the opening of the saloons, which opened ten £ays ago. Pour thousand men had been em ployed on the cleaning work, • many imported from Vhicago and other cities. Hundreds of them became de moralized through drinking and left the city. - - ■ ' Immediate attention Is to be given the broken levees, in which only the bad breaks have been stopped?

WHY WOMEN PREDOMINATE Weaker Sex Possess Greater Power Than Men in Shaking Attacks of Disease. London. —The fact that in almost all civilized countries women outnum ber men has been ascribed to the high er birth rate of girl babies; yet statis tics show that 105 boys are fyorn to every 100 girls. According to figures compiled by an European statistician, the girl has a better chance than the boy of attaining her maturity. He finds that from the third to the fifteenth year the mortality for both sexes is the same; from the fifteenth to the nineteenth year, the critical age whole body became affected. The disease reached his heart and life was snuffed out. The entire lower portion of his body was like stone and wholly without feeling. The case has been viewed by scores of physi cians In this section, all of whom were puszled. Mr. Irvine resided at Bucks Mills. The undertakers state that arteries In the affected portion of his body were closed. The body, weighs over 100 pounds more than Mr. Irvine did #hen In health. for girls, the girl’s chances are slight ly better than the boy’s; from the thir tieth to the thirty-fifth year the mor tality among women is smaller than among men, and it continues smaller until the seventieth year. Then for a decade and a half the sexes once more have the same chance of survival, but about eighty-five years of age woman again stands a better chance than man. To account for this difference the statistician points out that woman has greater resilience in shaking off dis ease than man. It is true that the physical strength of man is greater than woman’s, but a woman's power of endurance is more robust. One reason for this is that woman possesses a finer perception of her power of endurance than a man, and when her perception warns her of fa tigue she stops. A man does not stop until his power Is exhausted. His nervous system is not as finely organ ized as a woman’s, and, as Masso, the Italian physiologist, has pointed out, men and women are entirely depen dent on their nerves for caution not to overexert. While it is true that wom en more easily contract many dis eases, particularly nervous and mental diseases, than men, they overcome them more easily. WILL VISIT PUNCH'S GRAVE Olga Mean to for Austria on PU gra/rsge - licide-Sweet hearU* Tomb. __ Chicago'—Stilt grieving, although three years have ensued since t ie sui cide of her fiance, the young' Baron Oskar Rothschild, Miss Olga Menn, the beautiful daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Rudolph Menn, 1832 Lincoln avenue, will leave soon for Austria on her an nual visit to the baron’s grave “We hope to sail shortly,” said Mrs. Menn. “It all depends, however, ou the condition of Olga’s health. She fs slowly recovering from the great shock and I hope this trip abroad will restore her health completely.” “We shall visit the Rothschilds in Austria, in response to invitations we have received. Later we will travel on the continent. My daughter will remain abroad until late in the fall, after which she will visit in the east.” The romance of the beautiful Chi cago girl and Baron Rothschild is well known. She had met the young scion oT the American branch of the Roth schild family in Chicago while he was making a trip around the world. He fell in love at first sight. Miss Menn and her mother went to Vienna for the formal engagement announcement. While they were there, the late Daron Albert Rothschild, father of Baron Oskar, gave notice to his son that he would not permit the American girl to become a member of his family. Then Baron Oskar went to his room, wrote a note of farewell to Miss Menn and killed himself. BALL FOR ELDERLY DANCERS Paris Has Institution That Is Saic to Have Led tc Many Mar riages. Paris. —We have all known the “bals blancs” for young lads and lasses, the "bals roses” for young couples, “bals d’apaches,” “bals par fumes,” and all sorts of other freak balls, but the “bal mur” Is a novelty. This has been Invented by a chari table hostess for the great parterre of wallflowers, for men and women who have long hovered over the “forty” line, yet still desperately claim its neighborhood, or for those who heroically have said good by to dancing before. The name of “bal mur” is not a very flattering one and probably this category of choreographic fetes will soon come to be known by the more poetic title of "bal de St. Martin,” referring to the legendary summer afterglow known as the Ete de SL Martin. The first one was a great success, and in the two months fol lowing it led to no fewer than thirty seven marriages. In one of these the bridegroom was seventy-eight and the -bride sixty-two.

Tide of Immigration Redordfoint " More Foreigner* Admitted to Uncle Sarn'e Domain During Th Year Than In Any of the Three Fro viowe Yeam, Figures Show. Washington. immigration to the United States has been heavier this year than dnring the three previous years, 74W8 immigrant aliens having been admitted to this country during the nine months from July, 1912, to and including March, in addition to which 140,901 non-immigrant aliens were admitted, making a total of 888,- 899. A total of 12,557 aliens were de barred for various causes. Emigrant aliens departing numbered 247,798 and non-emigrant aliens 198.065, American citizens going abroad dur ing the nine months numbered 242,- 159; those returning 223,478. These departures and arrivals made the pas senger movement during that period total 1,124,934 arrivals and 688,022 de partures. More Japanese entered the country during the nine months than during the entire previous year, 6,435, com pared with 6,172 while 591 returned to Japan, compared w r ith 1,501 during 1912. Immigrants from the Russian empire predominated during the pe riod, 176,252 persons from there hav ing entered, compared with 162,395 in 1912. Italians were next with 150,383, compared with 157,234 in 1912. By occupation the majority of immi grants were farm laborers, 172,639 having entered; other laborers were 133.214; servants, 90,832, and tailors, 16,648. One significant feature of the statistics Is the fact that the number of laborers departing Exceeded the number arriving. During the nine months 164.025 sailed and during tho previous year 209,279, compared with 133,214 arrivals in the period and 135,- 726 for 1912. GOVERNMENT MUST PAY. ■ ■ The commonwealth of New Hamp ' shire the other day lodged a claim for ! 35 cents against the federal govern ment of the United States, and the 1 worst of it is the United States has to pay, notwithstanding that ecou i omy must be the watchword of the ad ministration in the face of tariff re vision. Zealous state authorities in an un relenting campaign against pests in vaded the back yard of the postoffice building at Dover, N. H., and dis ■ covered three browntail moth nests In ! a lonely tree that sheds its shade up ; on the hard-working postal employes ; of Dover during their rest periods. ■ The state “bugologists” without much ado destroyed the nests of the per nicious bugs and nonchalantly pre -1 sented a bill for 85 tents, evidently at the established rate of 15 cents for the first nest and 10 cents f for each i of the others. The postmaster protested vigorous- I ly, with the declaration that he him ■ self could have, annihilated the moths I without expense if the state had point ed them out. An issue was threat ened and the quarrel was referred to j the treasury department. Sherman Allen, assistant secretary of the treasury, who learned diplo : macy as an assistant secretary to I President Taft, conceded the point. After a formal bill and voucher was rendered a treasury warrant was sent to the state. SHOWS BIG GAIN. More than 150,000,000 parcel post packages were handled in the postal service during the first three months the new system was in operation, ac cording to reports submitted to Post master General Burleson. These fig i ures, which are based on the amount of business done at the 50 largest post offices, show that approximately 62,- 000.000 parcels were handled during the month of March or about 12,000,- 000 more than were handled in Febru ary, when the total exceeded January by 10,000,000. Approximately, 55 per cent, more business was handled In March than in January- As during the first two months, Chi cago led all other cities in the number of parcels handled with a total of 6,895,744; New York city handled 5,973,075 and Boston 1,657,039. The most noticeable gain was made in De troit by jumping from eighth place in January and ninth in February to fourth in March, with a total of 1,420,- 000; following in order are Philadel phia with a total of 1,294,954; Cleve land, 1,209,000; St. Louis, 1,148,586; Brooklyn, 983,130; Jersey City, 865,- 648, and Kansas City with 687,000. CHINA'S FOREIGN TRADE. China’s total foreign trade for 1912 was approximately 900,000,000 taels, or $585,600,000 In United States money. This is an increase of $33,- 000,000 over 1911. The combination of the revolution in 1911 and bumper crops in 1912 was responsible for the Jump. However, the imports con tinued to be somewhat in excess of the exports. America’s participation in the trade with China in 1912 kept pace with previous years, except in cotton piece goods. In 1911 China took 16.000,000 pieces, but only 11,250.000 pieces in 1912. The American contribution of 2.500.000 pieces in 1911 was cut to 1.700.000 pieces last year, represent ing $7,000,000 and $4,500,000. reflec tively. What the Carver Does. To be a good carver is to possess an accomplishment. Observation, practice and confidence are necessary. To carve a fowl a previous study of the joints !n an uncooked bird is a help to a beginner. When the carving Is to be done, for a roast chicken or turkey, remove first the leg then the wing, from one side then frojn the other side, separating the joints. Then carve the breast on each side; next take off the wishbone, separate the collar bones and shoulder blades. r : billions or eggs collected ganuuaHy increasing value t mk of the United Slates bureau eries is shown by the fact that first eight months of the prea eal year the number of eggs col for planting exceeds by 834,- 000,000 the number gathered In the same period last year. The number so far this year reaches the gigantic total of 2,185.000.000, against 1,351,- 000,000 in 1912. The greatest gain has been in white fish eggs from the great lakes, where this year’s take has been 524,000,000, an increase of 380.000,000. In lake trout the increase has been from 50.- 000.000 to 69,000,000. la-the New England coast this ye# gatheriuf of egg has beep At Mass,, last year s haddock egg collection to taled 160.000.000 and this year’s will exceed that by many millions. All the haddock eggs are taken from fiah caught for market, so that eggs that would otherwise be sold and eaten are saved for further propagation. Dog salmon egg collection shows the largest gain on the Pacific coast, this year’s take having been 20.000,- 000, against 3.300,000 last year. MONEY ALMOST GERM PROOF. I ‘ Those who have hesitated to amass wealth because of the warning to “be ware the billions of bacteria that lurk in every gill" need hesitate no longer, according to Dr W. C. Rucker, assist ant surgeon general of the public health service. He declared the other day that tests and examination of currency, both washed and unwashed bills, showed them to be singularly free from germs. He attributed this to the ink used in printing the bills, which he said had proved to be an almost perfect germicide. “The public health service was call ed upon to examine the soiled money returned to the treasury.’’ said Dr. Rucker, “after It had traveled around the country and had passed through the hands of thousands of persons. To our surprise it was found to be singularly free from bacteria, and the ink used in the bills is given the credit.” The ingredients used in the gov ernment’s ink are not made public, the recipe for the manufacture of the ink for the bureau of engraving and printing being zealously guarded. PRICES CUT DOWN. Prices received by producers in the United States for staple crops in creased 2.3 per cent, from April 1 ro May 1, according to a report by tin? department of agriculture. The in crease for the same period a year ago was 8.4 and the average increase dur ing April for the last five years was 3.4. On May 1 prices or’ staple crops averaged about 30.1 per cent, lower than on May 1, 1912, according to the department. The average prices for meat ani mals increased 3.7 per cent, from March 15 to April 15. as compared with an increase of 10.7 per cent, for the same period of 1912. On April 15 prices of meat animals averaged 16.7 per cent, higher than on April 15, 1912. On April 15, 1911, the prices for meat animals were 26.6 per cent, lower than they were on April 15 this year. VAST “COOKBOOK” ISSUE. More than 12.000,000 copies of the various “cookbooks” prepared by the department of agriculture, the latest of which is one on how to serve mut ton in a number of delectable forms, have been issued since this line of government activity began. By far the largest number published was of a bulletin on the “Economic Use of Meat in the Home.” which ran up to the enormous total of 2,235,000. Con gress itself printed 500.000 copies in addition to those distributed by the department. Of the bread-making pamphlet, nearly 500,000 have been distributed, and of the cheese leaflet almost 300,- 000 have been sent out. Of the mut ton bulletin, just out, 50,000 copies have been ordered printed for initial distribution. Six-Mile Depth Near Philippines. A surveying ship of the German navy has recently discovered the deepest known spot in the ocean. It is near the Philippines, about forty sea miles off the north coast of Min danao. Great depths were found to be nu merous in this but the record sounding showed the amazing result of 9,780 meters, or 406 feet more than six miles. The greatest ocean depth hitherto known was found by the United States cable steamer Nero in 1961. This spot was to the south of the Island of Guam, and the deep sea lead indicated 9,635 meters—just a little less than six miles. Finds Moonlight Calls Forth Germs. Strange powers always have been assigned to the moon, and It is not surprising to learn that a South Afri can belief is that moonlight hastens the decomposition of fish. But It is surprising to find this be lief brought forward as more than a superstition. D. E. Hutchins says he has obtained experimental proof of this action of the moon, and suggested that it is due to some low form of life called forth or stimulated to action by moonlight. ♦ Solemn Speculation. “So you think that new turtle cure will be expensive?” said one doctor. “Well,” replied the other, "it may depend on whether It employs -ordi nary mud turtle or terrapin." separate the breast bone from the back, then the back from the body, and then the side bones.
