There is one thing in favor of the 60-year-ohl school marm—she is going to stick to her business. The stigomay is a big mosquito well supplied with yellow streaks. It means business in every attack. The postmaster general has invent ed a new kind of money order. But it will be just as hard to get as ever. The early publication of "Fads ana Fancies" is now promised. It has been well advertised by smart advance agents. A Pittsburg man has invented a ma chine that will make and bake forty pies a minute. Where is the gatling gun now? Simeon Ford's chauffeur ran away with his automobile. The joke is on Simeon, but he doesn't see any mate rial for a funny story. A Philadelphia paper says that "Mrs. Harry Lehr now has a pet poo die as her constant companion." An other whack at Harry? A crockery trust with a capital ot $40,000,000 has been organized. It may be dangerous to start a bull movement in that stock. It is to be remembered, furthermore, that J.

In one day recently 100 wives ap plied at the New York police courts for warrants, charging desertion on -he part of their husbands. Married people should keep away from New York. "All wives," says a woman physi cian, "should become hypnotists and put their husbands under the influ ence." The great trouble with this scheme is that so many men are poor hypnotical subjects.

DISAPPOINTMENT IN JAPAN EVEN RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT RECEIVES PEACE TERMS COLDLY. ABMISTICE NOT N ARRANGED MAY BE CONCLUDED DIRECTLY BY GENERALS ON FIELD OF BATTLE. Portsmouth, N. H., Sept. 1.—Actual work of drafting the "Treaty of Ports mouth" began yesterday. It is being done by Mr. De Maartens and Mr. Den nison, acting as legal advisers for the respective sides. While the "bases" of peace have been accepted by the plenipotentiaries, considerable detail remains to be worked out in the elab oration of the articles of the treaty. This is especially true in regard to the articles dealing with the Chinese Eastern railway, and the surrender of the leases of the Liaotiing peninsula and Port Arthur and Taiienwan (Dal ny). Mr. Pokotiloff, the Russian min ister to Pekin, who was formerly man ager of the Russo-Chinese bank at Pe-. kin and who has intimate knowledge of all the details relating to those mat ters, is assisting Mr. De Maartens. Anomalous Situation. A very anomalous situation exists as to the impression created by the con clusion of peace.s While the outside world applauds, in Japan there is evi dently great disappointment in the terms, and in Russia, where it would seem that there should be universal re joicing over the great diplomatic vic tory Mr. Witte has won, the govern ment seems to have received it coldly. With the people it will make Mr. Witte a great and popular figure and add to his'laurels, but at court evident ly the very victory that Mr. Witte has achieved makes it all the more bitterly resented. It is an open secret that when the emperor appointed Mr. Witte chief plenipotentiary, the "military party" Expected Him to Fail. They did not want peace, and it was freely predicted in St. Petersburg when Mr. Witte left that he had been given an impossible mission: They ex pected him to fail in the negotiations or to make a "bad peace" and either would have spelled political ruin. In stead, upon the very terms upon which the emperor told Mr. Meyer he would make peace and upon which the mili tary party did not believe it possible for peace to be negotiated, Mr. Witte succeeded in securing a treaty honor able and, under the circumstances, favorable to Russia. This has evident ly only exasperated his enemies the more, and intrigue is again at work to discredit him. Since Japan was in a conciliatory mood they now say he made a mistake in surrendering half of Sakhalin. Yet he did so by the czars orders and himself insists that personally he would have Stuck to the End to his original declaration not to cede territory, or give indemnity. Not a word or line about the receipt of the news comes out of Japan. In view of the situation both Tokio and St. Petersburg alarmists are inclined to make jnuch of the facts that the minutes of Tuesday's fateful meeting have not .been signed by the plenipo tentiaries} of the two powers. It is pointed out that either side could still repudiate the agreement, but both plenipotentiaries refuse to admit even the possibility of such a happening. The armistice was not arranged yes terday and it is not improbable that the armistice will be concluded direct ly by the generals on the field of bat tle. tiOT YET OUT OF THE WOODS. "Whistle Softly" Is President's Homely Admonition. Oyster Bay, Sept. 3.—"Whistle soft ly, we are getting into the tniu timber, but we are not yet out of the woods." This homely admonition represents accurately President Roosevelt's view of the situation at Portsmouth. Peace is in sight, but yet 'is not an accom plished facr. Profoundly as he is gratified at the' results already achieved by the plenipotentiaries, the president realizes fully fhat the most important work remains yet to be done. Until that is accomplished, it is scarcely the part of wisdom, he thinks, to do'more than "whistle softly." The president has no definite idea how Jong the plenipotentiaries may be engaged in the negotiations of the treaty of peace. ALL WORLD ACCLAIMS HIM. President Roosevelt In Flooded Wltn Congratulatory Dispatches. Oyster fyiy, Sept. 1'.—All the world seemed to be sending one unending message of gratitude and commenda tion to President Roosevelt .yesterday, in which the glory of the conclusion of pence waB given fron^ many lands, in many languages and from admirers fin e%ery walk of life. Crowned heads, "'3W» r-i" it~m 4 S "V- great statesmen, ambassadors, dis tinguished prelates, leading represen tatives of all professions, miners, cow boys, deputy sheriffs, guides, philoso phers and friends of every station, sent glowing messages to the summer executive office in this sleepy little village for transmission to Sagamore rtill, until the official staff of clerks were overwhelmed with the task of answering them. Peace Prize for President. Carlsbad, Sept. 1.—The Associated Press has the highest authority for stating that there is a strong proba bility that President Roosevelt will receive the Iloble peace prize next a RUSSIANS ARE COLD. No Notable Expressions of Satisfac tion or Dissatisfaction. St. Petersburg, Sept. 1.—The news of tb6 successful completion of thte preliminary negotiations for peace at Portsmouth has been received here without marVfid or even notable ex pressions eiti .r of satisfaction or dis satisfaction. Tranquility is perhaps the best term with which to c-jiivey the sentiment of practically all classes, in cluding the officials. The general and pervading senti ment among the thinking element is that Japan arrived at a recognition of the fact that it- was really impossible for Russia to make any further con cessions for she desired to avoid arous ing among the people at. home senti ments which would constitute a most serious menace to the future. PEACE, THEN QUAKE. Severe Series of Shocks Make World Famous Portsmouth Tremble. Portsmouth, N. H., Sept. 1.—A series of earthquake shocks, the most severe ever felt in this section, occurred here late yesterday afternoon. Buildings trembled perceptibly, dishes were shaken from tlffe shelves, and in many cases people rushed in terror from their houses into the street. There were three distinct shocks, and in each instance the tremor was accom panied by a sound like a distant ex plosion. The first, impression was that the powder magazine at the navy yard had exploded There had been no ex plision, however, and the shocks were felt along the entire New Hampshire coast line. The first shock was,felt a little before 5:05 p. m.. and the other followed soon after. In the business section of the city shoppers and em ployes of the stores rushed into the street, believing the buildings were about to coiiapse. Each of the three shocks continued for several seconds. KILLED BY HER FIANCE. Girl Breaks Promise to Man Who Brought Her From Norway.

Immediately after the murder Williamson shot himself.. He will die. The tragedy occurred in a Brooklyn apartment. SKY WAS CLOUDED. Eclipse was not in Evidence in West ern Canada. Winnipeg, Man. Sept. 1. The eclipse Wi'.s a disappointment here. The sky was clouded in Winnipeg, also at Lake Winnipeg and Selkirk.
