He was born in 1871 and his literary
career did not begin until seven years
ago, tifter his failure as a lawyer.
According to a French international
almanac, which has just been sup
pressed, it appears that as long as
he remains in Russia the czar draws
annually from the Russian exchequer
no less a sum than $40,000,000.
Robert Crawford, the noted civic
leaders of Glasgow, Scotland, expects

He had intended to accompany Mr.

Mrs. Belva Lockwood, the only

dian case, among the most important

States court of claims. Mrs. Lock

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
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." The elder Jefferson cabled,
in answer "What for?" Back came
the answer: "For Willie." And he
got the money. .
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
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
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.

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
"Please, sir," answered Jimmy, "it
was the, elephant's.".
