Houston Post. London, Sept. 13. Claridge's hotel, the home of European and Oriental royalty, of British aristro cracy and American millionaires, has barred its doors of its palatial establishment in Brock street against John W. Gates. In the summer of 1900, when plunging on the English race cour ses, Gates' habits were of such a character as to induce the manage ment of Claridge's to enter him on its permanent list of undesirables. Upon 'lis arrival in London this "week, Mr. Gates found that he could not engage his former extensive suits of apartments in Claridge's and was compelled to take rooms at the most hospitable and less particular Carlton hotel, in Pall Mall. Speaking to the correspondent the manager of Claridge's said: "A Aveek ago some one showed us an editorial in a Chicago newspaper describing Mr. Gates as the most vulgar of American miliioasaiTes. The writer must have overheard the remark in our hotel, for that was the name' he earned forStmnself here. After a if month's exjirierice of his style of living we weixj 4com pelled to intimate to him that pro- 1 ' 1 fane language and reckless expect oration in an English hotel fre quented b' well-hred jwsple was intolerable, even in a man to write checks of emht fibres -and lose a j daily i" -ocks, horses and cards. "Gates' presence wjss really m 3 r e ?jwtanable to his countrymen than to .itfrepone else. Several Americaiss declared an un willingness io stay under the same roof with him an1 we frequently told our European patrojis not to judge American -men of srealth b' G a res' standard, as the- were dis posed to do. "Gates' whole fortune eould not procure him a, night's lodging at the hotel." Claridge's is the most exclusive hotel in the world. No persons are s.adniitted not personally known to .the management or recomended by former guests. It rices are pro liibitive. , DEAFXESS CANNOT BE CURED by locil applications ag they cannot reach the diseased porti .11 of the ear.

The handicap of imperfect vision naturally interferes with the pro gress of the child in his studies, says Dr. Grace Peckham Murray, in an article in the October "Delineator' on backward children, r A well known oculist of New York states that defective vision is a very com mon cause of apparent mental dull ness in young children. A child's eyes should be examined when he is old enough to attend school, in order to be sure that he does not suffer from lack of good eyesight. One writer has said that he never met with a case of chronic bad spelling that he did not also find some visual defect. It must be remembered that trouble from im perfect seeing comes not only from seeing words and figuies wrongly but also from fatigue of the brain caused br ere strain. TEXAS TO THERONT. Texas Medical Journal. Dr. Worsham's paper in this issue, descriptive of the splendid asylum for epileptics now being constructed at Abilene under his supervision and nearing comple tion, will be read with great inerest. in auuition to me fczuu.uuu an propriated for the purpose by the bill originally, the last legislature gave $50,000 more, making a clean quarter million dollars for this splendid charity. Thus Tex ik nil.:.. c the pace. I ins is tar in ex anv appropriation maue urn anv 1 -1 t State for its epileptics. Tiffs act alone shoul make Govern- Savers' administration famous; but this is not all he has doneor the unfortu- nates of Texas. By his advice, .such appropriations were made by the legislature as to enable the State to double the capacity of its three lunatic asylums, and intro duce all modern improvements for the safety, comfort and care of the inmates, and today it is the proud boast of Texas that there is not an insane patient in any jail in Texas; thev are all provided for bv thc State, in comfort, and under tne best management. Appropriat-c-s for enlarging the asylums were made under the two administrations pre ceding that of Governor Savers, but Culberson and Hogg promptly vetoed them "cut them out." All honor to Governor Savers. XEELY FILES SUIT. Wants Back Money Taken Him When Arrested in Cuba. from Washington. D. C Sent. IS. I Tf-mofi w imnr. nt 0 ' x ! i . , .

IDOL OF SPANISH PEOPLE. Kim Alfonso Is Winning the teem of His Subjects. Es- Madrid, September 13. King Alfonso has won golden opinions from many of his subjects, though the members of the ancient aristoc racy look askance at a monarch, who puts aside so many of the tra ditions of the proud throne of Cas tile and Leon. Alfonso, however, is but a b.oy and his little .pleas" antries need not be taken seriously. Much that is exaggerated has been, said about him, and his enemies,., though having no reason to hate the king, personally, deliberately do all in their power to bring the monarchy into discredit to further their own ends. It must not be for gotten that not only the Carlists, staunch Catholics and claimants o the throne of Spain, are interested7 in representing the youthful sover eign as despising sacred things, but. that also the republicans and so cialists, who have increased greatly of late years, are anxious to set the people against him. Alfonso, how ever, has mariv good qualities, and 5 as he grows older should grow in favor. It may be questioned, how- ! ever, if ,he has a strong enough hand to rule his turbulent kingdom. Alfonso dislikes heinor ffnoTrIhd and the people are glad to see- that he trust them. In the course of his journey through the provinces the women loaded him with praise. "Look, how handsome and how ! pweet he is-" "LonS livG his gracious majesty, shouted two handsome girls, at Gijot ; the other lay- 'Thanks, my beauties," cried Al fonso; '-you are too amiable." In Covandonga. while ascending the step hill to the sanctuary,, where 1 tradition insists that the Spamslii sovereign must be consecrated a canon of the church, the king was anointed, and bounding up the as cent left ministers and generals be hind. A village lad who had follow ed him, finding it difficult to-mount, took hold ot the king's stick to pull himself up. "Hold on tight," ex claimed Alfonso, laughing. These stories are told to'the king's credit, and show that he is popular among the common people. Speak ing io a child at a factory who had presented him with a bouquet of flowers, Alfonso said, putting his hand ruefully into his pocket: "Al though am king, my pockets are empty. Pardon me and come to my lodgings." The lad went away con tented and greatly pleased the king by saying: '-Till we see each other again, Mr. King.'
