DA GAMA SAVES HIS HEAD
He Sails Away for Farts Unknown in
a Portuguese Warship.
FEIXOTO'S DEMAND IGNORED
If tio Admiral Had Been Surrendered He
Would Have Had Short Shrift Speculation
Begarding His Departure Very likely
Further Insurgent Demonstrations May

Rio Jaseibo, March 18. Judging from the
course of events hero, It is thought by impar
tial observers thattho Portuguese government
does not Intend to honor the request mado
u pon it for the surrender ot Admiral Da Gama,
who was lately in command of tho insurgent
fleet before this city.
Admiral Da (lama toot refuge on tho Por
tuguese corvette Mindello when tho insurrec
tion collapsed. President rcixeto demandod
that tho admiral and tho officers who were
with him be dciheredinto his hands. Tho
Portuguese minlsterdecllned to order thocom
mander of tho Mindello to surrender tho fugi
tives, and Frcsldcut Telxoto nppcalcd, it is
said, to tho Portuguese government to instruct
its minister to order the surrender of the in
surgent ofllcers. Whether n reply has been
received to this request or not cannot bo defi
nitely stated, but this afternoon tho Mindello
nnd the Albuquerquo, another Portugeso war
ship, bavins on board Admiral Da Gama and
seventy of his officers, put to tea. There was
not tho slightest opposition mado to their de
parture, and, as a matter ol fact, trouble aris
ing from this source was nover probable.
Tho destination of the warships is not
known. It is conjectured that they will go
south to Montevideo and land the insurgent
officers there. II they aro landed at Monte
video they ean easily. If (they are so disposed,
join tho insurgents in the stntes of Sao Paulo
and Rio Grande do Sul.who are still in armed
opposition to tho government. Anything said
reearding their movements is, however,
Tho fact that Admiral Da Gama and his
officers have succeeded in getting out of tho
bay is a matter of great rejoicing nmong their
friends in this city.-"-There is no doubt in the
minds of anybody ttiirt bad tho admiral been
surrendered to that government his trial
by n drum-head court-martial would
have quickly followed. There could bao
been only one result of a trial of this kind
a sentence of death.

This Is the tlmo.of thq year when the nice

With Regard to the Hot Bath.
Is tho cold bath of English educated peo
ple, that for two generations has been almost
a religion among them, getting to bo a thing
of tho past? riftccn years a great London
physician preached that tlio next best thing to
a cold bath before breakfast is a very hot one.
The Sjbanto who still believed in the tonic
virtues of cold water compromised between
breaking the leo of n morning and a comfortable
hot bath, by ono in Iuko-warm water, a form
of fomentation, forscientifle reasons, far more
perilous than very hot or very cold bathing,
but the "rational voIuptuirj""now finds him
self in hot water' every morning, and is a
happier and healthier man in consequence.
In Japan they long ago discovered tho sover
eign virtues of hot water. Much of tho
hcaithfulness of the Japanese is due to their
habitual use of very hot water; they dabble
their bodies in water at 101 degrees Fahren
heit, and on particular occasions they go up
to 159 degrees, hot enough to stew a pear or
cook an egg. and enough, one would suppose,
to parboil any ordinary human being.

What ElcbJVien Have Given to Institutions
In 1817 Abbott Lawrence gave $50,000 to
Harvard, says Iter. S. P. Cadman in tho
Chautauquan, nnd it was then said to be the
largest amount ever gives at one time during
the lifetime of the donor to any public in
stitution in America, The reconstruction
period, so fitly consummated at Chicago last
year, is a marked epoch for college endow
ments. Between the years ot 1860 and 1882
the colleges of this country gained In wealth
an amount larger than their entire valuation
in 1859. More than 50,000,000 wero bestowed
in these twenty-two years upon our educa
tional establishments, and $35,000,000 of this
amount were donated in tho ten years be
tween 1870-E0. Johns Hopkins endowed with
$3,000,000 tho university bearing his name.
Mrs. Valeria G. Stone, of Massachusetts, dis
tributed more than $1,000,000 among various
institutions of learning. Asa Packer founded
Lehigh University, and Ezra Cornell tho
university at Ithaca, N. Y., which bears Jiis
name. Tho names of Matthew Vassar, Sophia
Smith, and Henry Y. Durant demand more
than a passing mention. TJach of theso pio
neers in the cause ot higher oducntion for
women mado their beliefs permanent by
founding femalo colleges, and Henry W. Sago
provided for tho special instruction forwomen
in Cornell University. But tho ideas of
generosity have widened with tho pro
cess of suns, and tho "last ten
years have witnessed a far more
liberal endowment of educational centers man
tho period just referred to.
Mr. Rockefeller's original offer of 5000,000
toward tho resuscitation of tho de'unct Chi
cago University was made in 1880, and tho
total sum ho chiefly, nnd others in lesser
amounts, since bestowed is more than
67,000,000. Mr. C. T. Yerkes gave 4500.000
for the observatory and telescope, Mr. Mar
shall Field gave tho university lands, and an
other 5500,000 was bequeathed from tho estate
of William B. Ogden for tho School of Science,
the Itojnolds estate adding $250,000 more.
Here, then, nnd at Palo Alto also, Is a
university practically mado to order.
Senator Stanford's gifts to Palo Alto amount
to more than 810,000,000. By tho gigan
tic power of wealth wisely used ho has cre

fruit ranch. The quiet roan of affairs has
put all future civilization under bond3 of ob

achievement, the phenomenal gift of all giv

$1,000,000 for tho erection of a Roman theo
logical seminary beneath tho superintendence
of his friend. Archbishop Ireland. Mr. J. S.
Pillsbury presontod the city of Minneapolis
with $150,000 forascienco hall in its universi
ty. Mr. George A. Pillsbury gav 0 another
$150,000 toward the Pillsbury Academy. Mr.
James Lick provided the observatory, with
Its mammoth telescope, situatod at Mount
Hamilton, CaL. and named In honor
of the donor. Dr. Coggswell, bestowed
$1,000,000 for the San Francisco Polytechnio
school. Miss Marv E. Garrett's check for
$350,000 was recently handed to tho trustees
of Johns Hopkins to complete the sum neces
sary to open to women tho medical depart
ment of that university.
The Girard College at Philadelphia has
been too long before tho American public to
need any special introduction here. It cost
nearly 52.000,000 to found this institution.
The Drexel Institute is the latest descendant
of Girard, nnd perhaps it is tho best and
wisest of Philadelphia s philanthropies. The
various departments of Pennsjlvonia Uni
versity owe 11 great deal of their existence
and efficiency to prominent Philadelphlans.
Mr. Lenning, for example, gave $750,000 to
tho scientific school, and the latoMr. Georgo
Pepper left more than $1,000,000 to theschools
and charities of the city. The Western Re
serve University has founded a medical col
lego with $250,000 given for that purpose by
Mr. J. L. Wood, of Cleveland. Ohio. W illiam
F. CI irk followed with $100,000 for the
Woman's Collego of tho samo Institution.
The Ciuciunati University wnj the gift of Mr.
McMickn, who bequeathed almost $1,000,000
for its support. Mr. Armour has givea his
institute to Chicago, a worthy peer of the
tho Pratt Institute in Brookljn nnd tho
Cooper Union in New York. Mr. Armour's
gift will have cost him about $3,000,000
by tho timo it completes tho found

for a national university nt Washington is
well underway. A donation of $100,000 is
just reported, "it should be observed that
tha monetary estimate of theso numberless
endowments is only a partial one; the con
tagion of generosity has caused a leading
offer, such as Mr. Rockefeller's to Chicago, to

They Relate to Eggs Entirely and Arc
True nnd Tried.
Water Omelet A nice omelet can bo made
without milk. Tako three fresh eggs, beat
the whites and yolks separately until quite
light; melt a teospoonful of butter and stir in
with the jolks; dissolve a tablospoonful of corn
starch in one scant teacupful ot cold water,
and stir in with the yolks ot the eggs, lastly
the whites. Cook quickly In a hot frying
pan in butter, just enough to keep from stick
ing. Watch closely, running a knife under
often to prevent burning, and as fast ns well
browned roll up. This quantity should make
two omelet rolls, and to bo really enjoyed
should go to the table at once.
Ham Omelet Tako cold boiled ham cut
from near the bone, where it will not slice
readily, and chop finely alout one teacupful
of it. Tako four eggs and break them wholo
in.a bowl nnd beat up to a foam with a fork;
aid ono small cup of fresh milk, a half tea
spoonful of silt, and a tablespoonful of flour
wet up in a spoonful ot tho milk. Stir all to
gether thoroughly nnd fry in bultcr In a hot
pan; set on top of tho stove, instead of over
the coals, as nothing tastes worse than any
scorched preparation of eggs.
Poached Eggs a la Creme A delicate dish
for Easter morning Is eggs on toast. To
poach an egg is almost as much credit to tbo
cook as for the chef to prepare a salad. For
each member of tbo family toast two slices of
breal w.th the crusts left on an ecn
brown. To do this nicely a wire toaster
should be held over the coals nnd carefully
tended every minutoof the process. Place
theso double slices of bread evenlj on n meat

the meantime, have ready three tablespoons
ful of fresh cream or mile and one teospoon
ful of butter, with a littlo salt and pepper, on
tho back of the range hot, ready to pour over
tbo eggs and toast. Serve Immediately.
Boiled Eggs On Easter morning give the
children a generous supply of hard-boiled
eggs. They will enjoy thorn so much. A nice
way to do Is to have them colored and con
cealed in a fancy dish or in an egg basket
under a hen cover. Diamond dyes are nice to
color them, and they come In every shade.
There should also bo a generous supply ot
boiled eggs on Easter morning not colored
for "tho man of tbo house." Consult his
well-known tastes as to "hard or soft," but
do not mind if he oats three or four for his
Easter breakfast. Somo men seem to think it
a kind of religious duty to eat as many eggs
as thoy can on Easter morning.
ART STUDENTS' LEAGUE.
Something About Its Progress and Its
To the women of Washington God bless
them Washington owes very much of its
distinctive charm as an artistic and literary
center. It was tho woman's spirit which was
breathed into tho first organization of Wash
ington artists, whoso object was to promote
acquaiaaneo and good fellowship among art
ists, to encourngo hurd study, exhibit the re
sults, and create an active Interest in local
art among the people ot Washington. The
advantages and facilities that aro now given
to women wore opened up nnd fostered by the
ambitious young artists, who wero compelled
to be self-supporting whilo pursuing tho
higher studies in art.
Tho story of tbo progress of tho Art Stu
dents Lcnguo of this city is one not only of
me untiring energy and support 01 tno male
artists, but ot the faithful work and the genius
of women. Nine years ago tho art league, of
which Mr. E. Francis Riggs fa president, greiv
out ot tho need of tho oung men and women
students of art in Washington who wero
really serious in their desires and could ob
tain no opportunities for art education in the
city, except as special pupils of somo of tap
resident artists, which was a most costly s 9
tem of instruction. A class was formed with
ono Instructor, nnd it grew nnd grew into the
Art Students Ltague, which is entirely self
governed, every detail of Its management be
ing In the handsof thosomost interested. Tills
league, which has enrolled this year 1C0 stu
dents, is now recognized by tbo New York
association as a professional school. There
will bo a friendly rivalry between the young
men and women of this school in tho compe
tition for tho scholarship which has been
offered by the Art Students Leaguo of New
York for tho best drawings from life to be
sent to New York In April.
Many of the women artists in Washington,

To Remove Spots nnd S:ilns.
To remove ink stains from white linen and
cotton materials, moisten the stain, spread
tho fabric above a jug of boiling water, nnd
sprinkle with salts of lemon. Rub until the
stain disappears and rinse.
To remove ink from colored dress goods,
soak in milk, rub and press until tho stain
disappears. Put fresh mile on as often us
tho old becomes discolored. If a grease spot
remains after this and tho goods is not wash-
"Are not you here?" returned tho abbe;
"nnd the Cossack has not returned this even
ing, and may bo on duty all night. For the
rest. I will be back in two hours. Prepare
the holy oil, and tell Janniot. the tavern
keeper, to saddle n horse at once. It is the
good God who calls mo to the friend who is
going to him. Now go!"
"It is enough, my commander," said the
old soldier, bowing and reluctantly depart
ing. It was Indeed late when the Abbo Chante
loup returned tho tired horso to the tavern
and regained, across tho sleeping village tho
lane which led up to his houso. As ho groped
along tho wall ot the church ho heard a call:
"Here, hero Monsieur Abbe, hero!"
"You, Jean? How is it you are there?" he
"It is the officer, my commander," was the
reply. "He returned and thrust me out when
I went to fasten tho door. He is in liquor,
And nt that moment a window was thrown
open, and Mademoiselle Lys, pale, disordered,
her shoulders bare, leaned out; but a hand
was swlttly placed upon her mouth before she
could cry out, and the young girl was pushed
back, and then tho dull sound of a scuffle was
heard by those In the street.
The abbo threw himself like a madman
against tho door, which Jean also shook with
a terrible push, until at Inst the fastenings
gave way, and the two men flew up stairs,
near the head of which Mademoiselle Lys had
fallen senseless and disordered, while the
Cossack officer stood near in evident dismay.
"Jean," said the abbe, "carry Mademoi
selle to her chamber and revive her. You
enter there, Monsieur!" and ho pushed to
ward the open room below the officer, whom
that scene had nearly sobered.
Then said the Abbe Chanteloup, looking
able, lay coarse brown paper over tire spot
and press with a hot Iron.
To remove ink from carpets, rub while
wet with blotting paper.
To remove grease spots from books or
paper, warm the greased spots gently and
then press on blotting-paper until as much as
possible ot the grease is absorbed. Then
warm the paper again and apply hot oil of
turpentine with a soft, clean brush to both
sides of the paper. Then touch the soiled
part with a clean brush dipped In rectified
spirits of wine.
To remove grease from linen, put a good
deal of soda into the washing water. To
remove from silk or woolen goods, cover with
soft brown paper, pass a hot iron over it, lift
the paper immediately, and repeat the process
as often as necessary.
To remove paint spots, rub with a sponge
dipped in benzine from the circumference, of
the spot toward the center. Otherwise the
spot is likely to spread. Rub until dry.
To remove wine and fruit stains, cover tho
spot with salt thickly. Rinse in cold water.
It not entirely removed, apply lemon juice
and dry in the sun.

Matters That Will Occupy the Senate and
House the Coming Week.
The present week will, so far as the calen
dar jeveols, bo devoted by tho Senate to
routine business of no general interest. It is
possible that the fortifications appropriation
bill will be reported from the committee, and
If it should bo, it will probably be taken up
for discussion and put upon its passage.
For the rest, there will be on effort to dispose
of tho Government Printing Office site, the
Russian thistlo appropriation, and the 11c
Garrahan bill, and a largo number of special
bills on tbo calendar.
As soon as the sundry civil appropriation
bill is disposed of in the House, which prob
ably wll be done to-night, the four contested
election cases which are pending will be con
sideredthe O'Neill-Joy case, from tho
Eleventh Jllssouri district; tho Wllllams-ttct-tlo
case, from the Fifth North Carolina; tho
Engllsb-Hllbom case, from the Third Califor
nia, and the Whatley-Cobb case, from the
Fifth Alabama. The O'Neill-Joy and Enelish
Hllborn cases, which wero both decided
against the sitting members (Republicans) by
strict party vote3 in tho Committee on Elec
tions, are tho most Important and will re
quire the major portion of tho time. In both
theso cases the result of tho election In No
vember, 1892, was exceedingly close. There
were two counts on tho O'Neill-Joy election,
the recount giving Joy (Rep.) G7 plurality.
O'Neill being beaten en the face of the re
turns, ho instituted the contest on tno ground
that the 3iissouri election law had not been
