Vienna Plans Tax on Chorus Girls. VIENNA, Dec. 9.—The Vienna tax department has been trying to solve the problem of taxing the members of the corps de ballet of the opera. Investigation proved that many of them lived in luxurious apartments, the rent of which was entirely out of proportion with their salary. An at tempt was made to question the dansuese themselves, but such a wave of indignation arose in theatrical cir cles that the officials had to desist. It has been decided that the income of the coryphees shall hereafter be calculated as quadruple the rent they pay for their apartments, instead of basing it on the wages they receive, from the opera company.

Some people cherish the il lusion that the courts have supreme power. Rounder has stacked up against some queer ones up to date, and his experi ence may not have been the widest at that. But the peculiarities of people that one is likely to run across is of ten discussed by those who have con tracted the discussing habit. A busi ness man? Rounder was talking to the other day admitted that he didn't read any of the local papers—in fact, or any outside daily papers. Couldn't spare the time to do any such thing, etc. This man, Rounder believes, is making a serious, mistake. Let him follow his i present course long enough and his little world will become so narrow and infinitesimally small that life to him j will become a great burden —or else !he will be a burden to any friends !he can lay claim to. In fact, such a ! man who can do his three-score and ten without mixing it up with the padded cell will do exceedingly well. A man owes it to himself and to the community in which he lives to keep posted on the events of the day. And the best way he can keep posted' is to try and arrange for a few minutes each day to look over a daily paper. And if he happens to live in Walla Walla he might do worse things than to make it a Walla Walla paper— say, one that is published in the even ing. * * * In a haberdasher's store one day this week. Rounder noticed a man enter who opened it up with one of the clerks something like this: "Say, my young friend, untie that parcel. It contains some things my wife bought for me yesterday and I want to exchange 'em if you will allow it." The clerk willingly started in to comply with his customer's request and when the package was opened a prize parcel of shirts and neckwear was exhibited for sure. The quality of the stuff was all right. But the colors! Run along and sell your pa pers! In the neckties pink and canary hues had the undisputed right of way, while, so far as the shirts were con cerned, peacock blue or some such similar color was the whole show. Af ter a satisfactory exchange had been concluded and the man had departed Rounder, born inquisitive, asked the clerk if he had many such customers as the one he had just waited on. "Yes, such 'exchanges' as I just now made are a common everyday occur rence with us," he replied. "You see it's this way," he went on, "many married men leave the buying of their shirts, collars, etc., to their wives—at least it is my experience that they do after they have been married some years." Without giving Rounder sufficient time to reflect on the information conveyed in the final clause of his last remark, the clerk continued: "Ladies as a rule are good shoppers and we are always pleased to wait on 'em. Most of 'em know just what will suit Henry or George as the case may be. But while all this is true there are some ladies who can never hit it right when it comes to their husband's taste in neckwear and shirts. Why, that man I just 'fixed up' is a regular exchanger' and among our customers we have many others. And here is something, too. not a few of the 'ex changes' similar to the one you just saw, are made rather stealthily, and the first purchasers never hear of it. Guess the men find that that is the easiest way out of it —at least the younger married men ,do for they are the ones who usually caution us to say nothing," When through putting his goods away the clerk started in to hand out some additional'informa' on regarding "exchanges" but Rounder had to go and so heard no more.

Einer Sjobloom Meets Death In Pecu liar Manner at Astoria. ASTORIA, Dec. 10.—To live 26 years and then be drowned in a w-ash tub was the fate of a young Finn named Einer Sjobloom, who came here last week from Enderby, B. C. With his head submerged in the water, which about one-third filled the tub, and his arms resting on the edges of the tub, THE EVENING STATESMAN SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1904. Sjobloom's body was found at the home of J. A. Eakin. On his arrival from British Colum bia the young man went to Andrew Karl's place and secured a room. That evening he talked with Mrs. Karl, and his questions created the impression that he was mentally unbalanced. He remained there over n'ght and left the next day. The next morning, when Mr. Eakin got up, he saw a man lean ing over the tub, but at first paid no attention to the circumstances, sup posing that it was a neighbor after water. However, when he saw the man there some time later, he con cluded that something was wrong and made an investigation. He 'found the body of the young stranger. Water in Sjobloom's lungs showed that he had been drowned, and at first it was sup posed he had committed suicide. Cor oner Pohl, however, expresses the opinion that Sjobloom took a urday night, and suffering from thirst, placed his head in the wash-tub. The coroner thinks the man must have grown faint and that he was unable to raise himself. SCANDIA PRINCESS LOSING SIGHT Victoria of Sweden and Norway, Future Queen, May Be Blind. WASHINGTON, D.

Chicago's Mayor Reiterates Intention to Retire. CHICAGO, 111., Dec. 10.—In view of the fact that Mayor Harrison's re peated statements that he is not a can didate for renomination or re-election have not stopped the discussion of his possibilities, he added another dec laration of principles -to the previous ones yesterday, and made the last without any "strings."
