Preadnonffht Will Be the
Man-of-war Afloat.
The keel plate of the Dreadnought,
which is to he the most powerful bat
tleship in the world, has been laid at
Portsmouth, England, says a Loudon
cable to the New York World. Her
displacement will he 18,000 tons. She
will he armed with ten twelve-inch
guns of the latest type, each capable
of throwing a 1)00 pound shell a dis
tance of twenty miles, with a muzzle
velocity of upward of 2,500 feet a sec
ond. Her striking power will be as
great as any three battleships of or
dinary type at such a range as that
at which the engagement opened in the
battle of Tsushima strait, for no other
warship hitherto has mounted more
than four twelve-inch guns, so there is
nothing afloat that can stand up
against her in a sea action.
About 11,000 tons of armor will be
built into her hull, and the Dread
nought will be driven by turbines at
twenty knots' speed. For the first
time on record on a battleship the offi
cers* quarters will be placed forward,
the designer's chief difficulty being to
provide accommodation for the 900
officers and men, owing to the great
demands on her space made by ammu
nition, storage of coal, etc.
She will carry 500 tons of projectiles
for her main guns, 200 tons of cordite
charges, 300 tons of stores, 2,500 tons
of coal and guns to a weight of GOO
tons without mountings. She is design
ed to be a floating fortress of the most
formidable type.
Coal Men Organize Society to En
courage Square Deal.
President Roosevelt's principle of a
square deaf for all recently found ex
pression among the coal men of the
United States at the Great Northern
hotel in Chicago when more than a
hundred traveling salesmen represent
ing both anthracite and bituminous
branches of the industry met and or
ganized the Order of Ko-Koal, says the
Chicago Inter Ocean.
The purpose of the order Is to pro
mote good fellowship, to discourage the
practice of "knocking" and to encour
age a square deal between the mem
bers of the coal trade. Secretary Ar
thur M. Hull believes that the member
ship list will number 500 before Jan. 1.
Officers were elected as follows: Mo
doc, George If. Barclay; baron, Frank
H. Collins; baronel, H. B. Dupuy; bar
onette, C. F. Lemmon; plctor, Arthur
M. Hull; mazumer, A. F. Boos; gazook,
L. Romanski; pitboss, Sam M. Stanley;
acolyte, A. B. Lemmon; swatta, C. R.
Shabino; spotta, J. A. Eggenberger.
The organization is designed to play
the same part in the eoal trade as the
Hoo-Hoos in the lumber trade.
Newark (H. J.) Preacher, After a
Foreign Trip, Makes a Prophecy.
The Rev. Dr. Daniel EL Martin of the
Clinton Avenue Reformed church, New
ark, N. J., who returned recently from
England, says, according to the New
York Times, that he believes an Amer
ican girl will soon occupy one of the
thrones of Europe.
"There Is a sort of tremor In the av
erage European nervous system," he
declared, "over the colossal fortunes
that are piling up in America. Some of
the journals seem to be In dread lest a
Morgan or a Carnegie buy up all their
art treasures and send them to Ameri
ca. Already you may see In the shop
windows the sign 'Made In America' or
'American Style' by way of commend
ing the articles.
"The European aristocracy is evi
dently trying to forestall the American
invasion by monopolizing the great
American heiresses and thus making
their country profit by our wealth.
There are 192 American women In the
aristocratic circles of England and sev
enty-eight In France. I am looking for
ward to seeing an American girl on a
European throne? Why not?"
Miniatnre Anton on Bracelets.
Speaking of the trend of fashion Jn
different directions word comf-s from
abroad that one of the newest fads,
which is unique in its freakishness, is
the automobile bracelet, says a writer
in the New York Tress. It is compos
ed of a chain made up entirely of tiny
gold and jeweled motor cars. The
lamps are composed of tiny diamonds,
and every detail is carefully carried
out. In spite of the value of the jew
els and metals employed the real cost
of such a bit of jewelry comes from
the workmanship.
ARrlenltnral Experiment.
The agricultural department is going
to try to fool nature, says a Washing
ton dispatch to the New York Ameri
can. It is projecting a series of tests
to see if cabbage and beets and garden
things cannot be made to grow as well
under electric light as under the influ
ence of the sun's rays. The idea is that
with the use of the electric light and
the heat it will give off the beds may
be placed under conditions as favora
ble for the growth of fruit and vegeta
bles in winter as in summer.
Sir Henry Irving.
We bring to your bier fresh laurels,
We lay at your bier new bay;
Then we weave a wreath of Immortelles
And crown you king of the play.
Great in the fields of the artist
Who plays with the minds of men;
Great in the great achievement
Of bringing within the ken
Of millions the dreams of po«ts
Who lived in the ages past.
All honor to thee, Sir Henry;
You have won the reward at last
That waits for the student and icholar,
Who Is peer in the dear world's part.
And we leave our wreath In sorrow
At the bier of your brave, true heart

Charlea Dana Gibson and Hia Am*
bttiona aa a Painter.
Charles Dana Gibson, the creator of
the -Gibson girl," has. reached the apex
of his fame as an illustrator and is
About to seek honors as a pointer. For
years his drawings in illustration of
the society damsel and other types of
American life have been looked for
regularly by thousands of admirera
who will seek in vain for his work in
black and white hereafter. He has
"bought his freedom" from working to
order, as a friend expressed it, and at
a cost of about $05,000 a year, the in
come his work as an illustrator haa
brought him, he will pursue his ideala
in the future regardless of the conse
quences to his purse.
Mr. Gibson's career is unlike the typi
cal one in his profession. Usually the
young artist struggles along and almost
starves to death while waiting for the
world to recognize his genius, and
reaches a competence, if at all, only
when approaching old age, but Mr.
Gibson, though not quite forty—he was
born in 1867—has already made enough
to keep the wolf from his door for the
rest of his days and is now going to
enter a broader field than that of the il
He was famous as an illustrator be
fore he was twenty-five, though he did
not win his popularity until he had
encountered some discouragement
When he was eighteen and had beeD
a student for a time at the Art Stu
dents' league in New York he was a
frequent caller on publishers of peri
odicals, but his contributions were in
variably returned with thanks. One
day the editor of Life accepted a draw
ing, paid him $4 for it, and invited him
to contribute more. That was the first
bit of encouragement he received.
Mr. Gibson has a very artistic home
in New York city. It cost him $50,000
and was built by his "Gibson girls," or
by the money they have brought him.
The real "Gibson girl," Mrs. C. D. Gib
son, is noted for her beauty and her tal
ents as a musician. She was Miss Irene
Langhorn of Virginia and Is a cousin of
the Duchess of Marlborough.
The artist's fad is collecting mis
prints. A Vermont newspaper wished
to say, in praise of a very aged and
distinguished citizen, "John Green is a
noble old burgher, proudly loving his
native state." But the types made this
sentence run, "John Green is a nobby
old burglar, prowling around in a nak
ed state."
Cyril of KuNttla and the Price He
Han Paid For a Wife.
The Grand Duke Cyril, cousin of
the czar of Russia and son of the
Grand Duke Vladimir, has recently
married a very beautiful woman, but
he has brought upon himself the royal
displeasure in so doing. His bride was
formerly the wife of the Grand Duke
Ernest of Hesse and
before her marriage
to him was Princess
Victoria of Saxe-Co
burg-Gotha. She is a
granddaughter of the
late Queen Victoria.
Long before she mar
ried the Grand Duke
Ernest, her cousin,
she and the Grand
Duke Cyril, another
cousin, were boy and
girl sweethearts. She
wedded Ernest under pressure from
her royal relatives. It was an unfortu
nate match, and a divorce resulted.
The Russian Orthodox church permits
divorce and remarriage in certain
cases, but the canon is against a union
in the circumstances existing in the
case of Cyril and the ex-Grand Duch
ess of Hesse. It also forbids marriage
of first cousins. But in spite of the ob
stacles to their union the enamored
couple were finally wedded. As soon
as the czar heard of it he issued a de
cree depriving his cousin of his rank,
annulling his commission in the army,
■tripping him of his uniform, order*
and honors and banishing him from
Russia. Even the popularity the young
grand duke won by his bravery In the
war with Japan and his exploit in es
caping death when the Petropavlovsk
blew up could not save him from the
imperial wrath, which was the greater
because the Grand Duke Ernest is the
brother of the czarina. Cyril takes his
exile sensibly and has settled down in
Cotrarg with his bride.
