It Is possible that the question of I official interference with fashions In I dress will resolve Itself into what the 1 soldier candidate called a local Issue. I Here and there properly constituted I officers have used the strong arm of I the law to regulate dress. For the I most part municipal authorities have I refrained from interfering. In Min j I nesota a strong effort is being made I to popularise a so-called common lense skirt. The Cincinnati chief of I police, under strong pressure, says he I believes women should settle matters I of dress among themselves. In Kan [ ms City a Judge of the criminal court, In passing judgment upon modern ex tremes in dress, uttered this owlish bit of wisdom: "The women of to f day have only one idea In view—to I dress In a manner that appeals to I men. Hasn't It always been such?" T Now comes another phase of the j eternal problem. It concerns condi tlons that influence the judgment of the far east, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. An American dancer had planned to exhibit her skill and agil ity in Calcutta. Now it Is stated that the engagement must be canceled. The reason given is a peculiar one. The police, It Is said, will prohibit the dancer's appearance on the ground that her lack of drapery would en danger the prestige of English women among the natives. Professor Curtis, astronomer at the I Lick observatory, says that the con t Itellatlon familiarly known as the Big I Dipper, which aids the average ana ! leur in finding the place of the north Bltar, Is falling apart. In two hun P|red thousand years, he affirms. It will he no longer discernible, the stars i composing It having moved so far In I their respective paths as to lose their I present relations to one another as i viewed from the earth's place in apace. For people who lack anything ; more pertinent to worry about, here la a promising theme. But there will be time before the trouble comes to save enough for the purchase of a pocket compass and thus avoid the danger of being lost in the woods. i St. Sepulchre's, the city church at 1 the end of Holborn viaduct, whose [ churchyard Is opened to the public, I dates, as the name implies, from the I time of the first crusade, says the B London Chronicle. Of the preseni ed I Wee, which has suffered sadly from I, "restorers," only the fine tower, one I Of London's landmarks, retains me i dleval masonry. From the top of this I tower "rich Dodington," the brother I ln-law of Walslngham, threw himself f to avoid a chancery lawsuit. ''If I do f break my peck," said Bacon to Queen J Elizabeth, ''I shall do It in a manner ai - [ Ht. Dodington did It, who walked on ! f 9k battlements of the church many I «Vi and took a survey where he i I should fall." I The Russian grand duke now visit- j here has selected the most beau 1 tlful woman In the United States. But I *s need no grand dukes to com« I from Russia or anywhere else to pick I out beauties for us. Furthermore, to I Pick the most beautiful woman in the I country would require an extended j f travel, and then the more the grand I ducal visitor saw the more he would r be bewildered In the embarrassment , I of riches he would find all around him The government Is having difficulty I» obtaining a professor of pharma oology at 14,500 a year. No wonder! The specifications call for a man who bas had broad training In various branches of ''pharmacology, physiol ogy, physiological and pharmaoeutlca.' chemistry and chemotherapy." Etforta to have German business houses give employment to retired army officers are causing resentment, German business tartly says If they t »re not good enough for the army t they are not good enough for bust K. »ess.

Which was thought to be an 111 response for such an oc casion, but to which Alexander quick -ly. replied, "Then all who fought at Ispos are here, since the glorious dead are always In our memory."
