DOORS SHUT ON J. W. GATES.
Claridges Hotel in London Says He
Is an Undesirable Guest. His
Profanity Was Objected To.
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
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

Several Americaiss declared an un

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.

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.

IDOL OF SPANISH PEOPLE.
Alfonso Is Winning the
teem of His Subjects.
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.'
