Von Buelow's Downfall Imminent—Re cent Scandals in High Officialdom Has Been Cause of Lack of People's Confidence—Poor Industrial Condi tions—40,000 Idle Workers in Berlin.

Not that there is any talk of an overturning of the dynasty or of republicanism, or even of any Important modification of the governmental system.

The recent scandals concerning high army officers and government officials have had something to do with under* mining the country's confidence in the chancellor. The people plainly feel he should have kept the kaiser-whom ttiere seems little disposition to blame —better informed as to the character of the men the latter was making his close personal and political friends. 'And if the chancellor himself does not [know what kind of men they were, it I is plainly the general impression that he ought to have known. Ihen, too, there is no doubt most eople considered the government went too far toward "whitewashing al leged offenders for whom nobody thinks any excuse ought to have been made. It is not asserted that there is a disposition to continue these persons in their official position. No doubt, it is admitted, they will be gradually relegatctd to obscurity. But Germany rather thinks example» should have been made of them—that the court 1 did wrong, especially in sacrificing the I individuals who brought so much 1 wrongdoing to light. Von Buelow's own record has re ceived a good many hard knocks i.i the course of gossip attending recent investigation. He himself eloped in his youth with a married woman and, though he wedded her as soon as ne could and has since lived an exemplary life, the circumstances have not been quite forgotten. Intimations that Von Buelow can not say much concerning others' informalities because his own past would not bear too close scrutiny have not been the kind of hints to help the chancellor. Industrial conditions, however, have done more than all court scandals put together to injure the adminsitra tion with the public. Berlin's unem ployed are now estimated to number 40,000 and the depression is growing steadily worse, sure against loss of employment are burdened aud the suspension of sever Small merchants are Companies which in al is predicted, suspending daily and the city is full of empty buildings.

BORAX IN THE DAIRY \ Matter of Profitable Interest to the Farmer and Dairyman The problem of keeping sweet all the itensils used in. connection with milk and cream selling, and butter making, as been a serious one with the farmer. He has come to realize fully that the slightest taint or hint of staleness left In a can, tin or churn may ruin a whole output; that the taint which is left Is in the form of bacteria which grow and multiply in milk or butter, producing disastrous results. The farmer has learned that hot wa ter won't rinse away the greasy resi due in dairy utensils. ' He has learned that soap leaves a residue of its own which is. if any thing, worse than the milk or cream residue, and it is little wonder that there has been a constant clamor for a dairy cleanser and sweetener that will meet modern requirements.

The committee considered the ques tion of defensive tactics in connection with the forward pass and it was de cided that while the forward pass Is in the air, the players of the defensive side may not use their hands or arms their opponents except to push them out of the way to get at the ball. In order to eliminate tackling it is pro vided that the players of the side making the forward pass, who are elig ■■H ible to receive the pass, may use their hands and arms just the same way that players do down under the kick.

Quiet Ceremony During Fierce Storm In New York—Bridal Couple Trip to Florida for Honeymoon—Presi dent Sends Gift to Bride—Presents Are Not for Public Gaze. New York, Feb. 16.—Miss Theodora daughter of Theodore P. Shouts, Shouts, formerly chairman of the Isthmian canal commission, was mar ried Saturday at uoon to Manual Theo dric Bernard D'Albert De Luyne. Duc de Chaulues, of Paris. The weddlug took place at the home of the bride's father at 132 East Fifth avenue, the ceremony being performed by Mon signor M. J. Lavelle, rector of St. Pat ricias cathedral, assisted by Rev. Father Byris. There was room at the house en trance for only one carriage at a time and because of the blockade impatient feminine guests braved the storm and dragged their silks, satins and chiffons through the blinding rain. This exhibi tion of discomfited society was a source of great amusement to curiosity seekers, who howled with amusement wnen handsomely gowned guests with skirts tucked under their arms braved the storm for a most embarrassing walk. Many a carefully polished high hat was blown into the middle of the muddy street and many an umbrella carried by a footman over aggravated mistresses went inside out. As a re sult of the delay in the carriage line fully half the guests failed to see the ceremony, among them being Mrs. James B. Haggln and Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish. Miss Marguerite Shouts, sister of the bride, was her only attendant, and the Prince Andre Galitzln, the duke's uncle, was best man. The Shouts home was decorated witn American Beauty roses, lilies of the valley and smilax. The bride wore a gown of duchess satin, with court train bordered with orange blossoms. The Duc de Chaulnes is 29 years old and a member of one of the most aris tocratic families of the French nobil ity. He has a house in Paris and a hereditary castle in one of the French provinces. Following the brilliant wedding cere mony the young couple left this after nou in a private car for Florida, where they will enjoy several weeks' honeymoon. The wedding was most elaborate in every detail. The ceremony was brief, the wedding party forming on the third story and trailing down embowered stairways to a lane formed of satin pillars support ed by a canopy of lilies of the valley. The altar was arranged in the large drawing room and before it the couple exchanged vows. Only a few of the guests were per mitted to see the fine collection of gifts sent from all quarters of the globe, among which was a gift from President Roosevelt. Mr. Shonts posi tively refused all information regard ing them. The father and mother of the bride, accompanied by the Duchess d'Uzes, Prince Galitzen, Baron De Cande and Baron De La Bouillerc, left tonight for Niagara Falls in a special train. W. J.
