mmmm „y * f ///ft fj v\' V. From 9 ik as Gossip From XOash in g ton r<4. (Ä American Press Association. WM. H. THO¥P»OJr. ENATOR WILLIAM H. THOMPSON, tbe "boy senator" from Kansas, served a long time as judge in his native state before assuming tbe toga. As Kansas is a prohibition state, there was frequently a great deal of trouble with what are known as "bootleggers" in that section, a "bootlegger," accord ing to accepted local parlance, being a gentleman who carries whisky for illegal veudable purposes around in the leg of his boot or otherwise concealed. A great many of these cases caine before Judge Thompson, and he frequently paroled the offender. This made for him sev eral enemies, one of whom told the story on the senator which is now going the rounds. According to this, Judge Thompson was comiug out of his court room one day when he bumped into a big, burly colored man standing in a dark part of the hall. "1 beg yo' pardin, jedge," said the son of Ham, bowing profusely. "I cannot pardon you," Thompson is reported to have replied, "but 1 will grant you a parole." at at The Wilson administration cannot agree on the subject of beverage. As widely heralded, Secretary Bryan is a devotee at the shrine of the grape juice goddess. President Wilson thinks nothing quite equal to the fragrant, sun brewed liquor found in his favorite fruit, the orange, and now it has become known that Secretary McAdoo is a but termilk "fiend." Twice every day the secretary's door tender brings a glass of fresh buttermilk to Mr. McAdoo's private office. It is one of his chief duties, and he is al ways punctual, arriving promptly at 11 o'clock and at half past 4. « at "Filipino" Jones is what they call Representative William Atkinson Jones of Virginia in the house. The reason is that he knows more probably about the Filipino, by and large, and his habits, hopes and aspira tions than any other living white man. incidentally he is author of the bill granting independence to the Filipinos eight years after it becomes a law. He has almost grown up with the Philippine problem. He has served twelve con secutive terms—a longer term of continuous service thau any other member of the house—and during at least seven of those terms lie has been on the tieuse committee on in sular affairs, having been among the members of the com Am mittee when it first came into being. So it happens tbât ^Æ3ÆIÈÈÊË *'' w ,are 10 cross swords with the Virginia congressman when questions about our island possessions come up. Jones knows his Philippines, and he cau prove it. Moreover, he has a lot of Auger tip facts concerning the little brown men that are apt to floor the theorist when it comes down to cases. at * Representative Hughes of Georgia has a town in his district that is quite unique in that there is not a single Republican, Socialist, bull mooser or Pro hibitionist in it. The town is Danville, Ga.. and every time Representative Hughes runs for office it gives him about 500 solid Democratic votes. it >t Woodward R. Oglesby, w r ho is serving bis first term in the house from the Twenty-fourth New York district, used to be a Kentuckian before he be came acclimated to the variable political zephyrs of the Empire State. Oglesby is a live wire, and his friends prophesy great things for him if his constitu ents see tit to return him for a second term. at at Unde Sam approves of tipping. This was shown to be the case a short time ago, when the comptroller of the currency allowed an item for $1.90 for this purpose, which had previously been rejected by other officials. at at Uncle Sam has $740 that he does not know what to do with. Of this $610. .3 is in the San Francisco mint, left by some "forty-niners," and the bal ance in the army office in New York city, in the form of silver bullion left for exchange for fine bars and never called for. William G. McAdoo, secretary of the treasury, asked to have the amount converted into the treasury fund to save bookkeeping, as nearly all of his predecessors hare done during half a score of years, but George E. Downey, the comptroller, decided that it can not be done by law. A special act of congress will be necessary. I« American Press Association. WM. A. JONES. Today's Short Story I WASTED PITY S HE and her husband lived in the next fiat above mine, and I pitied her. How she could endure to live with a man who kept such irregu lar hours I could not imagine. I should rather say regular hours, for he sel dom came in till morning. It would be 3 o'clock and sometimes 4 o'clock when he passed my floor. 1 would hear a door open above, and at times when my own door stood ajar I could hear n kiss of welcome. After that there would be moving about above, and sometimes a ripple of feminine laughter, never a scolding word, es caped from their apartments. Often in summer, when doors and windows were left open to admit air, 1 could hear the rattle of dishes, the drawing of a cork, the clink of glasses, ami knew the couple were having a supper together. Surely she must have had something of the bohemian in her nature, and, above all, 1 wauted for a wife a wo man of that kind. 1 pitied those men whose wives must always remain at home and make their husbands misera ble unless they are always at home too. What a jewel a woman must be who could receive her husband at all hours of the morning after he had spent nearly the whole night carous ing or playing poker at his club, give him a loving kiss and cook a supper for him! And when tins is kept up night after night what must the en during amiability of that woman be? One morning I did not hear the hus band come in at the usual hour, and the next day a doctor's buggy drove up ro the front door. The doctor went up to their flat He came every day for i while; then a hearse stopped at the door, and I knew that the poor woman would not have longer to suffer the irregularities of a brutal husband. She never returned to tbe flat. Some eighteen months afterward, while at an evening party, I saw her standing chatting with tbe hostess. 1 recognized her at once. In a moment I was sidling up to the hostess and re ceived the coveted introduction. I refrained from telling the widow' that I had lived beneath her and was aware of how she hud been obliged to sit up night after night waiting for that husband. In time she consented to become my wife. I had put off so long telling her that I had known of her former domestic life that I resolved to defer doing so till immediately after our marriage. Indeed, I wished to make an experi ment. Would she endure as much from me as from her first husband? 1 proposed to put her to the test. On our return from the honeymoon I told her that I desired to visit a former bachelor chum. She assented. At 3 in the morning 1 opened my front door and went upstairs. I expected to see my wife's bedroom door open and feel her arms about my neck. What was my disappointment to find that the door remained closed. I opened it and entered. My wife was sound asleep. I should have considered myself for tunate not to receive a dressing. But I did not. I was angry. I made so much noise purposely that finally I woke her up. "Pretty late hour this." she said, "for the day after the full of the honey moon. Could not you make less noise and permit me to sleep?" This was too much. I told her how I had often in the past heard her hus band go home at that late hour and how she had received him. I. who bad taken what was left of a chilled heart, instead of getting a kiss or a hot sup per receive«! only complaint. She lis tened to me in some surprise and when I ha«l finished said: "You gander! My first husband was the editor of a morning newspaper." I NO SLIT IN FALL STYLES. : <t> & Advance models in ready to wear ap parel for women now being shown in the department stores reveal some very striking effects. The newest in the two piece garment is tbe "combination," the skirt of the suit being either plaid, of mixed goods or striped, while the coat is plain, with collar and cuffs of the material of the skirt. Coats are plain, with kimono sleeves, and trimmed with many but tons of cloth or metal. Skirts for the fall are very much draped. Many folds of drapery are placed in both front and back of the skirt. Early styles in skirts are long and very much more narrow thau any of tbe skirts in some time, which is really saying something. But, most surprising of all, search for the famed slit as much as you will in the fall models and yon will not find it. Some of the skirts have a fold of goods resembling a slit, but it is only there so that the wearer may be able to take a step or two. Many of the coats have sashes of silk with jet buckles. Purple in all shades will be the raging color of fashion, while terra cotta, blue and all shades of brick color will play a part in Dame Fashion's life this fall. THE WHITE KITCHEN •l , +4++++ 4* T HE kitchen may be made as attractive as any other room in the house. For the summer it is particularly pleasing if finished in light tones like the one illustrated. The wide easement window fitted with leaded panes has a deep sill which accommodates [tots of growing herbs con venient for use in flavoring. Underneath the window is a fitted cabinet in which may be tucked away those kitchen utensils that detract from the sightli ness of the room. A little table on which pastry may be rolled out has a glass ? m mmxmtm 1 V >* V. m » KITCHEN IN WHITE ENAMEL. or marble top. The kitchen cabinet, with its place for everything, is a kitchen convenience that is appreciated by the orderly cook. The floor should be cov ered with a good linoleum, while above the wainscoting the walls may be neatly enameled or covered with tiled paper, so that from time to time they may be wiped off with a damp cloth and thus kept spotlessly clean, plenty of fresh air and a good light, which depend on the window arrangements, are essentials of the model kitchen. OLD FASHIONED | BEAUTY METHODS. I <§> Homely, old fashioned face washes are now being used by the fashionable women of England in preference to the expensive preparations of "beauty ex perts," according to an article printed recently. It is asserted that many women take with them wherever they go big jars of thyme and elder waters and that others are using distilled water with out any other ingredient. The "simple" method of beauty cul ture includes the use of the following: Distilled water, elder and thyme wa ters for the face; lemons for bleaching the akin; buttermilk, both for a wash and to drink; cucumber juice for the complexion; nettle, dandelion and colts foot beers to drink as being good for » appetite lagging? be a 9 CUBIST. • I « Post impressionistic food is the • latest. • To show that you are thor- • oughly informed in futurist art J you should enter a restaurant • nonchalantly if you can this hot J weather and deliver yourself of • an order like this: * "Bring me crystallized rose • leaves and cream cheese." « Or, "Be so kind as to bring me • • an order of Iamb chops perfumed • with violet."

One "beauty expert," who sacrificing the profit from the sale of high priced nostrums, advocates the use of the simple washes used by the great grandmothers of the beauties of today, said: "Buttermilk is most excellent for both exterior and interior treatment but it is somewhat difficult to obtain Usually only very large farms now make their own butter. ••I believe, too. in nettle beer and make my own in summer time. All women can take the precaution of never washing the face in places like London in water that has nut first been boiled. This is the cheapest form uf beauty culture." Another admission was made bv a well known liairdresser. who said that the simplest and most efficacious fiai tonic was vaseline rubbed into the roots. She Knew. "Miss Janet is a long time coming down," he said to the pretty parlor maid. "Perhaps she is—ha, ha—per haps she is making up her mind whether to see me or not." The maid smiled coldly.

In a storm at sea the chaplain asked one of the crew if he thought there was any danger. "Oh, yes," replied the sailor. "If it blows as hard as it does now we shall all be in heaven before 12 o'clock to night." The chaplain, terrified at the expres sion, cried out, "The Lord forbid." An Old Favorite ARRANMORE By Thomas Moore 0 ARRANMORE, loved Arianmore, How oft I dream of thee! And of those days when by thy shore I wandered younp and free. Full many a path I've tried since then Through pleasure's flowery maze, But ne'er could find the bliss again I felt in those sweet days. How blithe upon the breezy cliffs At sunny morn I've stood, With heart as bounding as the skifTs That danced along the flood! Or when the western wave grew bright With daylight's parting wing, Have sought that Eden in its light, Which dreaming poets sing! That Eden where th' immortal brave Dwell in a land serene. Whose bowers beyond the shiniag wave At sunset oft are seen. Ah. dream, too full of saddening truth! Those mansions o'er the main Are like the hopes I built in youth— As sunn;' and as vain!

It is allied to the ostrich and emu and is known to the natives of New Zealand, where it is found, as the kiwi-kiwi. Its scientific name is the apteryx. It is easily alarmed and for this reason inhabits regions cov ered with extensive and thick beds of fern, in which it quickly hides when frightened. The apteryx has a very long and slender bill, of which it makes a re markable use in supporting itself when it rests. The natives pursue it for its skin, which is very tough and flexible and much prized by tbe chiefs for the manufacture of their state cloaks or mantles.
