I., July 3.—A S'.Ktch making swing to the Pacific Coast, beginning the second week m August, will Inaugurate Charles E. Hughes’ campaign for the Presidency unless developments during the next month compel a change of plans. A two weeks’ vacation in the Rocky Mountains, probably at Glacier Na tional Park, will be included in the Republican candidate’s tour. He will be away about six weeks. Mr. Hughes’ idea is to travel in regular trains, stopping over for a day or two in the cities where he will deliver the addresses. A real old fashioned whirlwind campaign drive will come about Oct. 10, when Mr. Hughes will travel by special train to points where, as his advisers express it. his presence “will be most obvious ly needed.” This means that the doubtful states will receive the candi dates attention during the closing days of the campaign. In his tour to the Pacific Coast, Mr. Hughes intends to make no rear plat form speeches and visit only the big towns . It is his present intention ta include in his itinerary Chicago, St. Paul, Kansas City, St. Louis, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los An geles. A few other stops of impor tance may be added, but not many. In each of these places, Mr. Hughes hopes to addresi moo»ter gathering on all the vital issues of the cam paign. He is expected to lengthen his stay in several cities in order to con fer with Republican leaders. The main purpose of such conferences will be to bring all elements of the party together with particular refer ence to the Bull Moose recalcitrants.

NEW YORK YALE PAGEANT'S MASTERLY MUSIS Seven Well Known Composers Will Contribute to MeloUy In the Bowl. D. S. SMITH TO CONDUCT Great Dana ana Chorus Under His Baton Will Play and Sing Scores For the Interludes and Episodes In Great est of Dramatic Spectacles. New Ilaven, Conn., , —Aside from the sheer magnitude of the thing, aside from the fact that in the matter of numbers alone it will mark one of the biggest dramatic performances the world has ever seen, the Yale Pageant, which will be presented on Oct. 21 in celebration of the bi-centennial anni versary of the coming of Yale College to New Ilaven, will be truly remarka ble in its musical Investiture. Not often in the history of music have seven men collaborated on a sin PROF. DAVID STANLEY SMITH, Master of Music, the Yale Pageant gle work, yet tills Is true of the Png eant music. Each episode of the Pag eant has been turned over to one man to set to music. Naturally, since tills is a Yale Pageant, the book and music both are the work of Yale men. Tin music is by Professor Horatio Parker. Dean of the Music School and well known as the composer of the two prize operas. "Mona” and “Fairyland;' Professor David Stanley Smith, alsu well known as a composer; Professoi Harry B. Jepson, the University Or ganist; Seth Bingham, Organist of the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church In New York; Walter Ruel Cowles and William E. Ilaesche, instructors in the Music School, and Dauglas Moore, a graduate student in the Music School. Professor Smith Will Conduct. The big man of the day, musicallc speaking, who bears the Imposing title of Master of Music, will lie Professoi David Stanley Smith, who will con duct the great band of over 100 instru ments and the male chorus of several hundred, formed by the Yale Glee Club aud the College Choir. "In writing the music,” says Prof Smith, "we had to work very much as an opera composer writes his score Each man was given the libretto o* his particular episode, with stage dt rections and suggestions written in "The Pageant will open with a tram pet fanfare, which was written by Wil liam Edwin Ilaesche, an Instructor in Instrumentation in the School of Ml, sic. He, by the way, Is the man who had charge of the scoring for the hand and is arranging the music. Then conies the Marriage of Margaret opt sode, which I wrote for full band aud a chorus of Welsh bards. The First Episode was written by Seth Bingham Yale 1902, who is organist of the Mad Ison Avenue Presbyterian Church hi New York. The First Interlude is the work of Walter Ruel Cowles, Yale 191C, instructor in the School of Music Harry Benjamin Jepson wrote the next part, the second or Revolutionary epi sode. Mr. Jepson is the University or ganist. Horatio Parker’s Work. Professor Horatio Parker, the Dean of the Music School, wrote the second interlude, and the next episode was done by Douglas Moore, a graduate student in the Music School. The Wooden Spoon Prom., which is the third interlude, is the work of Haesche and I wrote the fourth episode and Prof. Parker the finale. “We trh'l to apportion off t0 eac), man the part we thought most suited to liis style of work, i'or instance, Mr llingham and Mr. Moore both have a splendid sense of humor in music, so we asked them to do tiie humorous in cidents in the page ait. sfoore wrote some wonderful u: ck serious muai for the 'Burial of id: .id.'” I 10,000 BEES LOOSE IN \ WOMEN'S BALLROOM i - I Apiarist Turns Out Swarm Before Club Members, but No Stings Follow. Cleveland, O.—In the nursery story the queen sat In the parlor eating bread Ind honey, but even Mother Goose nev er saw 10,OtX) bees loose in a ballroom. But the latter sight was seen recently when Ernest It. Boot of Medina, bee and honey expert, shook out a swarm of bees into the white and gold ball room of tlie Woman's club, this city, to show members of the club how easily the little honey makers may be han dled if one knows iiow. There were swift glances toward the door when Mr. Boot proposed to open the little ease that held the bees. “Don't be in the least afraid. They will not i sting you even if they should happen to i light on you,” promised Mr. Boot. lie scooped up a handful of the bees l °tit of the thick, moving brown mass, put them in his hat, clapped his hat on his head and went on with his talk. TWO BEDS REQUIRED FOR A GIANT BOY OF 15 Prisoner Measuring Six Feet Four Was Cause of Worry to New York Children’s Society. New York. — Children’s society offi cials had all kinds of trouble with flftpen-year-old Theodore Olsen, who stands six feet four inches in his socks. This young giant had not been able to find a bed In the place that would tit him. lie had been sleeping in two beds placed together, with the cover pieces out. Subterfuge had been dis- ! covered to make Theodore tit one of the children's bathtubs or to find one to fit him. Olsen was arrested after he had call ed the janitor of an apartment house here to help him extinguish a blaze that he admits he started in the dumb waiter shaft. lie says he had started five similar fires in the upper west side, but had always extinguished them himself, because his desire was not to see the engines dash by, but just to see the blaze. Theodore left school because of the embarrassment caused by his abnor mal size. He became a delivery boy for a grocer, and he says that after delivering an order on the dumbwaiter he would start a blaze at the bottom of the shaft among the old papers and other waste that he frequently found there. Theodore lives with his par ents in this city. MAY BOYCOTT A DEADBEAT. Merchants of Topeka, Kan., Plan to Organize For That Purpose. Topeka, Kan.—Attorney General S. M. Brewster lias announced a ruling thnt tlie merchants of a city or the state could form a trust or order a boy cott against the deadbeat. The Topeka merchants have worked out a scheme whereby each merchant is to make a report monthly of his customers who do not pay regularly or have not satis factorily adjusted their accounts. These reports are then to be forward ed to every other merchant in the local association, and they are to refuse credit to any of those on the blacklist. There are some lawyers who have held that the merchants could not form an association to boycott the deadbeat without violating the anti-trust laws. The plan of the Topeka organization was submitted to the attorney general, and he has advised the merchants that such an organization would be legal. CATTLE FEAR DOG. Herd Ran Over a Horse and Buggy In Their Terror. Arlington, Ivy. — E. W. Benson of Bardwell had a novel experience the other day. While driving along the road out of Barlow, Mr. Benson saw a herd of yearlings ahead of him turn into a lane. In a few seconds he also noticed a dog sneaking in the direction •f the cattle. The dog made a dive for the herd, and they made a run for the road, ar riving there just as Mr. Benson drove up, and the cattle ran over the horse and buggy, knocked the horse down and came.near turning the buggy over. In their mad haste to get away from the dog one of the calves fell, going under the buggy. Mr. Benson says this is the first time he was ever run •ver by a herd of cattle. HER BARE LEGS SHOCKED.

SCI 3 GRADING COTTON. To persons not familiar with the technical side of cotton grading—and this means incidentally many men who make their livings producing the staple —such terms as “strict good ordinary,” “low middling” and “middling fair,” often encountered in print, are a mean ingless jumble of words. Less than three years ago—as a matter of fact, until Uncle Sam came to the rescue— the terms meant little enough in the most technical phases of the cotton trade. Nearly every one of the large “spot” cotton markets of the country— where actual bales of cotton are bought and sold—had a different scheme of grading, and a still different system was employed in Liverpool, long the chief cotton market of the world. The variations gave rise to endless disputes and the loss of much time and money. Attempts had been made from time to time by various associations to reach an agreement as to standards, but had never proved successful. Many experienced cotton dealers believed that variations among cotton grown in vari ous sections of the south was so great that the formulation of a satisfactory system of grades of universal applica tion would be impossible. Under authority of congress, how ever. the then newly created office of markets of the department of agricul ture took up the problem in 1914 and established standards that have not only met with practically universal ac ceptance in the United States, but that have been accepted to a certain extent in the chief foreign cotton mar kets. Demand for the government standards is so brisk, in fact, that a .'urge force of experts is kept busy now ;h specially equipped workrooms in Washington arranging the carefully se lected samples of fiber of different grades in special receptacles and pre • paring them for shipment. FAKES FROM ABROAD. American mails are being flooded with frauds from abroad. Beware, says the postofliee department, of all seduc tive circulars from foreign agents who offer to read your horoscope and by do ing so put you on the road to health, prosperity and happiness. All they ask is the small consideration of two or three dollars, which, indeed, would be little enough to pay for these precious gifts if they were actually forthcom ing. But here is the rub—they are not. Crafty “crooks” are operating from England, France and Holland, increas ing their incomes at the expense of the superstitious and credulous. The gov ernment has been investigating these fraud cases by the score, but their lit erature still flows into the country, and despite all efforts of the postofliee au thorities money orders continue to be sent by trusting individuals who want to learn what the future holds in store for them. The literature of these fraudulent as trologers which the department has collected in its pursuit of evidence makes entertaining reading. They are a clever set, well acquainted with hu man nature. Everything within the •cope of mortal desire is anticipated, and their circulars promise the most definite aid for overcoming troubles, conquering foes and achieving all the desires of the soul, mind and body. HEADLIGHTS MORE POWERFUL. Railroad locomotives in road service between sunset and sunrise are re quired by an order of the interstate commerce commission to have a head light sufficiently powerful to enable persons in the locomotive cab to see an object the size of a man a distance of 1,<XX> feet or more ahead in normal weather conditions. Locomotives required to run back ward in road service must have a rear headlight of the same type, and those used in yard or terminal stations will be required to carry two lights strong enough to make a man size object visi ble at a distance of 300 feet or more. The order is made applicable to all new steam locomotives put in service after Oct. 1 next and to others given a general overhauling before that date. All engines now in service must be equipped with the liuhts not later than 1920. MANUFACTURE OF BUTTONS. In tlie 1914 census of manufactures for tlie button Industry, with which is incorporated a comparison with the figures for 1909, an increased number of establishments is reported, but the value of the products is not .so great as that for 19 Returns were receiv ed by the United States bureau of the census from 517 establishments which manufactured buttons during 191-}. The total value of the products of j these establishments was $20,791,985. At the census of 1909 there were 441 establishments, with products valued at $22,708,0(15. In addition fifty estab lishments engaged primarily in other industries manufactured buttons to the value of $182,001 in 1914.

New York.—Not all of William Wa> dorf Astor's income from his Amcrii can investments will lie required t* i pay the $1,080,1)00 which the Britistt government is taxing him this year. It is a fact, however, that the tax. he pays abroad is greater by several hundred thousand dollars than th« amount he pays on his properties her® in New York. In the tax collection now under way Mr. Astor is required to pay $T><>7,000 on. his real estate in Manhattan. This is a semiannual payment, so that hi* total for the year will lie approximate ly $1,134,000 for Manhattan. To this must he added his taxes in the Brony, making his total payments to the citjr nearly $1,250,000 this year.

WILLIAM WALDORF ASTOR. shown therefore in ills real estate taxes, plus his income tax, no figtm^ji about which are available. A great many estimates have beetjt made as to the extent of the Astor real estate holdings in this city, hut it has been difficult to get satisfactory infor mation until now. Confusion has over taken inquirers because of the exten sive holdings of the John Jacob Astor estate as well as of William Waldorf Astor. Some of these properties for merly were held jointly, and Lord As tor still appears as only part owner of one of the most valuable of the Astor properties, the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The records of the department of taxes and assessments, however, have been worked out so carefully that it is now possible to get a deiinite idea of William Waldorf Astor's total real es tate holdings. Fifty million dollars, the official rec ords show, is the approximate market value of his various properties in Man hattan and the Broux. The bulk of these holdings, as is generally known, is in Manhattan, hut Mr. Astor has in recent years added somewhat to hit holdings in the Bronx until these hit ter properties represent about S-i.OOQvt 000. What annual income Lord Astor do*' rives from these properties is known only to his agents here, and the esti mates of outsiders vary greatly. Some of his holdings produce a high rate of income, while some are regarded as very poor earners. The opinion of real estate men as to the average income from all of the properties covers quits a wide range. Some guesses are that; Lord Astor receives not more than £500,(XX) a year from these proi>ertIes, while other real estate men place hf* annual receipts from this source at twice that amount. If his holdings bring in an average of 7 per cent, not taking taxes into ueeount, that would represent $3,51 .'0,000 as an average year’s income. Deducting from that amount the 1010 taxes, calculated at $1,230,(XX), there remains $2,250,000 of Income upon which the Baron of ne ver can draw to pay Ids British taxes. Payment of taxes is not the only way by which the earnings of the e Astoar properties have helped the British. At the time William Waldorf Astor at tained to the pe -rage it was estimated, that he had given tit least $5 • o.i.OQ© to various objects in England.
