A New York lawyer, gazing idly out
I of his window, saw a sight in an office
across the street that made him rub
1 bis eyes and look again. Yes, there
was no doubt about it. The pretty
i stenographer was sitting upon the gen
[ tieman’s lap. The lawyer noticed the
name that was lettered on the window
and then searched in the telephone
book. Still keeping his eye upon the
scene across the street, he culled the
gentleman up. In a few moments he
saw him start violently, and take down
the receiver. "" N
“Yes,” said the lawyer through the
telephone, “I should think you would
। start.”
The victim whisked his arm from its
former position and began to stammer
| something.
“Yes,” continued the lawyer severe
ly, “I think you’d better take that arm
| away. And while about it, as
i long as there seem to be plenty of
i chairs in the room —”
The victim brushed the lady from his
■ lap, rather roughly, it is to be feared.
1 ‘ * Who—who the devil is this, any
how?” he managed to splutter.
“I,” answered the lawyer in deep,
■ impressive tones, “am your con
science!” And then he bung up.—

Washington, June 19.—The hand
somest man at the white house is Cap
tain Archibald Warrington Butts, Uni
ted States army.
Captain Butts (sounds awful short
without the other two) is the pres
ident’s military aid and Mrs. Taft's
esquire. When Mr. Taft can’t go along
to a reception or a lecture or a meet
ing which the first lady of the land
wishes to attend, Captain Butts is her
escort. And there are many eyes en
vious of the white house mistress be
cause the captain certainly makes a
fine esquire.
Captain Butts is a big uhstanding
sort of a man, with a good Philip
pine record, a deep bass voice, and a
broad chest where he hangs his med
als. He’s really an ornament to offi
cial Washington.
Captain Archie can play a good
game of golf. He showed his class late
ly when he and General Clarence Ed
i wards paired together and beat the
; president and vice president by two
l holes.
Captain Butts used to be a Wash-
I ington correspondent before the Span
i ish war. He entered the service through
। the paymaster’s department under Gen-
I eral Corbin.
Train Robbing Hard
Job These Days
i Special Dispatch.
Omaha, Neb., June 19.—1 f James Gor
don, W. D. Jones and Fred Torgensen
are convicted of robbing the Union Pa
cific Overland Limited train recently,
their case will be only another proof
that the day of successful trainrobbing
has passed.
Jesse James and his gangs fought
only sheriffs’ posses. The telegraph and
telephone were not perfected and the
country was poorly settled. The rail
roads did net have their own police and
detective departments.
In these days the train robbers have
to pit their wits against, trained police
departments of great cities and against
the railroad detectives.
The result is that they are usually
caught before they get a chance to
spend the stolen money.
The only successful train robbery
within twenty years was on the Bur
lington road near Woodlawn, Lincoln
Neb. The bandits got $45,000 and
Gordon, Wohds and Torgensen were
caught when they went to a spot to re
cover hidden masks and revolvers.

San Francisco, Cal., June 19. —Heir to
one of the oldest titles and to one of
the wealthiest estates of Bavaria, Carl
F. Von Hutton, brother of Baron Von
Hutton, and once brother-in-law to the
recently divorced Baroness Von Hutton,
known to her intimates as “Pam,” is
earning his living as a street car con
ductor in San Francisco.
While Baron Von Hutton lives lux
uriously in the peaceful seclusion of
his Bavarian villa and the divorced
Baroness flits gaily about Europe, Carl
is leading a happy, simple life in a lit
tle cottage here, earning bread for his
wife and baby daughter by ringing up
There is nothing foppish about Carl.
He is a hard worker and holds himself
no better than the hundreds of other
carmen with whom he daily associates.
Carl Von Hutton is the second of
four sons. He ran away from home
when he was 15 years old. Since then
he has visited nearly every remote cor
ner of the globe.
“I’m through with the Von Hut
tons,” says Carl. “Since I left home
they have never showed the slightest
interest in me or my affairs. It has
been 10 years since I have seen any
member of the family. I am forget
ting all about them. I want my chil
dren to grow up as true Americans.
The United States is the greatest coun
try of the earth. ’ ’
If the present Baron Von Hutton
should die, Carl would succeed to the
title, the Baron being childless.

Light travels at the rate of 186,000
miles a second.
Count “one”—the rays of light have
flashed a distance equal to nearly eight
times the circumference of the earth.
Count “two”—the rays have gone
372,000 miles into - space.
Count “three” —the rays have gone
half a million miles into space.
On Sept. 15 Mars, which is some
times 60 millions of miles away, is
only 35 millions of miles distant.
We know the rate of speed at which
light travels and we know the distance
from Mars, on the date mentioned.
It is a simple matter to calculate
how long it will take a message of
light to reach Mars.
The time is 187 seconds, or three
minutes and seven seconds.
We know that rays of light can tra
vel this distance. The very fact that
with our naked eye we can see Mars,
is proof of that. The rays which
strike our eyes have started from the
surface of Mars Only a few moments
। before they reach us.
This knowledge makes Mars seem
comparatively near us.
There are other known stars vastly
further from us.
There are stars out in the evening
sky whose rays have been coming to
ward our earth for thousands of years
—at the terrific rate of 186,000 miles
a second. We think we are seeing the
star. We cannot be sure of that. The
star may have died centuries ago.
Rays from our earth, according to
the principles of light, may have been
rushing at this tremendous rate out
into space for thousands of years.

of a million miles a second, out to

Short stories — serials — special arti

great magazine are presented, monthly,
each by a master.
As examples, take the representative features below—
by some of the world’s greatest master workmen.
Eliza Calvert Hall —whose wonderfully dever "Aunt Jane
stories have called forth such emphatic praise from President
Roosevelt. Charming—simple—sincere—are the words that char
acterize the brilliant short stories of this past-master of the art of
delightful tale-telling.
Ellis Parker Butler’s grotesque little masteroiece, "Just
Like a Cat,” has set the short-story standard for COSMOPOLI
TAN. A whole series of Butler’s remarkable tales will appear in
forthcoming numbers.
George Randolph Chester —inimitable prince of short
story tellers. COSMOPOLITAN contains his brilliantly interest
ing series of business stories—fascinating tales, as gay, light
hearted and interest-compelling as the best of the elder Dumas.
Chauncey M. Depew’s irresistible anecdotes have kept fhe
world laughing, now, for nearly half a century. COSMOPOLI
TAN is the one magazine that has finally succeeded in securing this
busy, brilliant statesman-financier to write his charming reminis
cences for you.
Charles Edward Russell —journalist—inimitable prose
poet—master of sharp, incisive English—the man who makes you
sit up with a start when you read him. It’s this vitalizing spirit you’ll
find in “The Story of Charlemagne”—sharp, indsive, trenchant
English that fairly whirls one through the brilliant Hfe-story of
one of the greatest, grandest characters that have emerged from
the Middle Ages.
These, and more, appear monthly in COSMOPOLITAN.
