He was born in 1871 and his literary career did not begin until seven years ago, tifter his failure as a lawyer.

Robert Crawford, the noted civic leaders of Glasgow, Scotland, expects shortly to,. make a tour of America, lecturing on "Municipal Socialism and Its Practical Workings in Glasgow." He had intended to accompany Mr. Dalrymple to America, but was ill at the time.

Mrs. Lock Wood is an ardent admirer of Presi dent Roosevelt, whom she regards as the. greatest living statesman. . " " When First Assistant Postmaster General, Hitchcock began the dis charge of his duties he found that orders for the purchase of supplies were being approved in the most per- fu.:ctory manner. He decided to put an end to such slipshod methods and v,ith that en i in view decided not to eiyn any letter until he had read its contents. As he receives several hun dred daily he soon found that in or der to carry out his plan he would have to work about twenty-four hours a day, so he was forced to give it up. Dr. W. G. Grace, England's most famous cricketer, recently gave a lit tle girl his autograph. She returned for another, and in explanation! said: "I gave the other in exchange for two bishops." Shei got her second auto graph. , , ; . : ; It is not generally known that Dr. Washington Gladden who has so vig orously scored Ahe church for its ac ceptance; of "tainted" money and John D. Rockefeller were country boys together in Tioga county, New York, attended adjoining district schools, and frequently met in rival spelling bees. The late Joseph Jefferson's son Wil liam went abroad several years ago, and while he was "doing" London he found T that his funds were running short. He cabled to his father "Send me $500."

Dr. Joseph Spencer Kennard is to have the distinction of being knighted by the King of Italy at the January levee. Dr. Kennard recently removed from Philadelphia to Tarry town, N. Y., and from his novels in the Italian tongue he has received larger royal ties than an Italian novelist, save Ga brielle D'Annunzio. King Oscar of Sweden was recently on his way to Norrland and stopped at Solleftea station. Only two bowing officials greeted him. "Where are my people?" demanded the king. "I have excluded everybody from the station," sail the station master. "Then I will go out and meet my people." And he received a most hearty welcome. Eugene Richter, the great German radical, who has recently gone blind, was a thorn in the flesh of Prince Bismarck. No member of the Reich stag was more dreaded by the "Iron Chancellor," and no other member so often caused him to lose his temper. This was largely due to Richter's ex traordinary command of figures and finances. In -Paris the Countess Boni de Cas tellane, (one of Jay Gould's daugh ters), who continues to lavish money on all possible objects, is said to dis play more jewels than the old noble family approves of. At a soiree she wore for the rst time a collar of pearls so large and so beautiful as to make universal comment, as it was thought to be in bad taste. Colonel G. W. Darling of Dayton, O., recently sent his discharge papers to Washington for correction. He has just received them together with a voucher for about $200, clothing money, which was due him during his term of service. This was the first intimation that Colonel Darling had that anything was coming' to him. While in service he was so small that his mother made his clothing and the government furnished him none. Everybody who knows and every body who has heard of Theodore P. Shonts believes that President Roose velt has picked another winner in naming him as the man to dig the Panama canal. Why? Because Mr. Shonts Is of quick decision, hard to trick, strong-willed, kind-hearted, quick-tempered, keen of analysis and an all-round man. And that's just the kind the president and the people of the United States are looking for to take care of their affairs. The fact that Mr. Shonts has been associated fwith small railroads doesn't mean that he can't handle a big one. He chose his own lines of work because he knew that the difficulties of the little fellow were much harder to master than the routine of a great road already established. He has worked ever since boyhood. Although his father was a wealthy man young Shonts was anxious to earn his way, and one summer, when he was fifteen years old, he labored in the fields at fifty cents for a farmer in Center ville, la. Those who have closely followed Mr. Shonts' career and have watched his management of the mat ters in his charge, say that he is a man who knows his business, and that no one can change his mind. It is said that the politician who wants a "job" under Mr. Shonts must have something stronger than a "pull," as he wants about him only those men who know what to do and how to do it. Mr. Shonts' salary will be $35,000 a year. Human Life. A REFUGE IN DISTRESS A fellow's father knows a lot i i Of office work and such, . But when it comes to things like what A boy wants, he ain't much. For when it comes to cuts and warts Or stone bruises on your toes, A fellow's father don't know, but A fellow's mother knows. A fellow's father, he looks wise And says: "A-hem! A-hem!" But when it comes to cakes and pies, What do s he know of them? He knows the price of wheat and rye And corn and oats, it's true, But if you get the leg ache, why, He don't know what to do. And if you burned your back the time . That you went in to swim, And want some stuff to heal it, why, You never go to him, Because he doesn't know a thing About such things as those, But you just bet, and don't forget A fellow's mother knows. And if your nose is sunburned, till It's all peeled off, and you Go to him for some healin' stuff, He doesn't know what to do. He's just as helpless as can be, But when a fellow goes And asks his mother, why, you see, A fellow's mother knows. A fellow's father knows a lot. But it ain't any use, So if a fellow's really got The leg ache or a bruise, Or if there's anything he wants He gets right up and goes And asks his mother, for, you see, . A fellow's mother knows. New York Times. Not So Remarkable A school teacher who was giving a lesson on "food" was interrupted by one of his pupils. "Please sir," he said. "Jimmy says he knew a baby that was brought up on elephant's milk, and it gained 10 pounds In weight every day." "James ought not to tell you such rubbish," said the teacher. "Whose baby was it that was brought up on elephant's milk?" "Please, sir," answered Jimmy, "it was the, elephant's.".
