It is the way of travelers to complain
of the food they are obliged to eat in for
eign countries. Whether it is an Amer
ican in Europe, or a European in America,
the result is much the same. We like
the things to which we are accustomed.
When Edmond About was in Greece he
earned matters so far as to object to
eating gret-n peaches. He was in the ba
zaar at Ath-tta.
"Wouldn't it 1 possible to get Some
npa peaches?" he asked the vender.
"I think not," answered the Athenian.
"But pray tell mo why?"
"We have no good roads. If the far
rara should try to fcriny ripo fruit to mar
ket on mule-hack It would arrive in the
shape of marcsalcde."
"JBnt at Corfu, also, tho peaches wcro
green and they have good rans and bring
tho fruit to town In wagons.'
"All, well," eaid the raan, "there Is
another resien. Tho farmers liave no
money and they have creditors. They
can't wait for tho fruit to get rip?."
There, ss.ya About, you have a fair ex

A Trench gardener, being at Smvrna, no

Drunkenness in England.
In England, during one year for which re
turns have been furnished, there were 142 ,
725 convictions for drunkenness, of which
1 1 ,178 were for offenses committed between
noon and midnight on Sundays. This does
notshow that there wasexcessive indulgence
on Sabbath days more than on others. In
Wales the proportion of Sunday convictions
was still less, numbering only 772 out of
a total of 10,34.7. Compared with this re
turn for the whole or Wales, there is
significance in the fact that in the border
county ot Mosmouth, to which the Sunday
closing act does not apply, there were 110
convictions for drunkenness on Sunday,
against E68 on other days. London Dally

Had Key West won tho fifth race at
Alexander ilslhnd yesterday ono of tho big
gest coups! of the year would have been
pulled off. All of tho faithful wore to share
in tho profits.
The plans for the killing were deeply laid.
A week ago it was known that tho big
brother of the mighty Firenzi was in good
shape, nhd steps wero taken to moke his
first race a paying one. The horso is owned
by The Hartford stable, or to be more acy
curate, Miko Daly. This was ono point
towards thebuccess of the coup, forwearers
of the "all green jacket" are usualy very
fortuuato at tho fctart This part of tho
affair being looked aftor, the next thing to
be considered was the Jockey.
Murphy, the regular stablo pilot, being
on the Euspcr.dcd llht Tor having failed to
show the proper disposition to win on
Wednesday, could not be put up. There
was some talk of having him restored to
favor for the occasion, but for appearanco
sake it was finally decided to let the sus
pension stand and look elsewhere for a
Washburn was the one selected. He
works for "Hughey" ilcCarron, ono of the
"high exalted members" or the fold, and if
"Hughey" was allowed to get a part of the
profits, it was aseurtd that the boy would
do his best, as "Hughey" was informed of
the contemplated killing.
He Bfld 10 me leng talks with his friends,
and the wires were kept busy carrying com
missions to the out of town pool rooms.
At the toack it was very hard to get any
money on, for the majority of tho hookies
kuew of the contemplated killing. The
few outside the iold opened up at 3 to 1,
but in a jlfiy even money was the best
obtainable. Fredericks, who should have
been favorito, was Quoted at 3 to 1, and
the general teliet Was that his Jockey at
least had been told what a good thing
Key West was.
Tho race was run, and when it was over
tho "god thing" wjjs in secoad place,
Woodchopper beating him by a neck. The
plans of the "talent" Mad miscarried.
They did not consider tbiwibner in their
calculations, and the mfttakc had cost
them thousands. Tho Wy on Frederirks

no disappointments, butmhe overlooked
Woodchopper had wrought ''havoc.
Tho faces of the "administration" when
the result was announced; wore a study.
They are not accustomed to' Boeing their
plans upsstj and they did not take defeat
with good grace. They acted a if some
one hsd wronged them. Qao of their
famou "fixed" winners had peea beaten.

"How is it that so many books go on day
after day when the racing is known to be
so decidedly dishonest?"
The answer is eslly round. The in-and-outrunnixg
f the horses at the track makes
public form a faree, and the public are
compelled to pmctieally go it blind. This
is, of course, a source of rich revenue to
tho bookies, especially those who are kno wn

At Alexander Island he is in Ids element.

set ot three games with large margius in
The visitors bowled strong, steady games,
but wero evidently not ia their best form
as some of their stronger bowlers failed
to do the work their playing in previous
contests showed thorn capable of doing,
the difforonco in length ot alleys no doubt
having something to do with their failure
to do better.

Dusty Rhodes Give me a dime, boss?
Sussell Rage What have you dono with
the nlcklo I gave you a month ago?
Dusty Rhodes Sold it to & Bowery mu
seum. New York "World,
sure us of buying well.
Quality is our strong point. Our patrons
never know what it is to get an unreliable
article here
Take those $7.50 BUSINESS SUITS, for
instance. Price is pretty low, but you can
buy them with confidence even if you're
not a good enough judge of cloth to see
they're something superior.
SUITS are special prides of ours. We
never saw such suits at the price. Others
have them, to be sure, but they ask more
for them.
Take a TOP COAT for $10. That's
easy buying. Light English Kerseys, cut
short, nicely finished- and made.
MEN'S FURNISHINGS have been the
things with which our name has been long
est connected and in spite of the addition
of our new department, they lose none of
our attention. We have, we do, and we
always shall lead for HATS, GLOVES,
