FLOATING STEEL COLLEGE. A novel and attractive educa tional enterprise will soon be lit erally launched at Perth Amboy, N. J., where shipbuilders con structing a floating school in the form of a fine sea-going steel ship for the Nautical Preparatory School of Rhode Island. The idea is not to make naval con structors or navigators, but to give four years of university edu cation while the recipients thereof are making voyages to differert parts of the world. Be ginning with 1904, the first year's itinerary will provide for a cruise of 12,000 miles, the second 18,000 miles, the third 24,000 miles, and the fourth and last 27,000 miles. In fact, the whole world will be circumnavigated while the stu dents are daily receiving instruc tion from competent teachers. The schoolship is to be known as the Young America. She will be a full-rigged ship of 2,600 displacement, and with an auxil iary engine of from 750 to 800 horsepower. Under ordinary conditions sail power alone will be used, and it is estimated that the ship will be able to sail at the rate of from ten to twelve knots an hour. A school enterprise of this kind can of course be patronized only by those who are blessed with a good share of the world's wealth but as the education of young men who were born with the traditional silver spoon, and who have been the recipients of every indulgence is more puzz ling than that of young men who are used to making their way against hard knocks of experi ence, the proposed schoolship may do some good. Young men inclined to sow wild oats pro fusely can be sent to sea for four years and emerge from the floating school well informed as to the chief points of interest in the world and at the same time well prepared for business life. The scheme is so attractive that those who are interested in edu cational enterprises will watch the progress of the ship and note the result of each year's cruise. DEATH ON THE TRACKS.

Cummings of Lewiston Me., has undortaken a partial enforcement of the old blue laws by compelling the confectionery shop owners to shut up on Sunday. These storekeepers axe charging discrimination and now threaten to serve papers upon the sheriff in an action which will force him to carry his crusade even further and enforce to the very letter all the famous old purity statutes. This vtll mea^ as is their purpose, that busi ness and labor of all kirds must cease upon the Sabbath, ana even the newsboys 'will be driven from the streets and the electric cars prevu*" ed from operating. Rising American Oarsman. A young man with the poetic name of Fernand Demoruelle, son of a for mer police commissioner of New Or leans, will be the representative of the Young Men's Gymnastic club of that city to compete :n the trying out of the American oarsmen on Harlem river, New York, on the occasion of the Harlem regatta.

A certain duchess paid $25,000 to a London specialist for eliminating' a trouble which seriously threatened her beauty. Dr. Sheldon of New York, for curing the daughter of a Standard oil magnate, received se curities worth in the open market $87,000. Who would not like to be a apecialist at these figures? A Chinese Innovation. Some foreign clothing has been tak en into the palace at Pekin for the emperor and empress dowager to try on, so that they may come to some decision regarding its introduction in official circles. Should the emperor and empress dowager sanction the wearing of foreign costumes by the court an unprecedented departure will have been taken. In no way is the conservatism of the Chinese shown more strongly than by their adherence to their national dress, even when living in Western countries. Women Want Palace Cars. Society women in New Orleans have begun a movement to have the street railway company put on palace cars for their convenience and comfort They say they can not ride, in the present cars when they are in after noon or evening dress, as the cars are dirty and there is no telling who their seatmate may be. They do not mind paying extra fares for the use of ex* dusive cars. Teetotalism In Texas. When Gen. Horace Porter was in Texas he ca_ie _.:cs a man who went about telling everybody, in great surprise, that he "had struck a big thing here." "What's the matter?" people asked. "Why," he answered, "I was sent down here by a temper ance society in Kansas to distribute these tracts. Well, whenever I hand ed a man a tract he glanced over it, hauled out a revolver from one pocket and a quart bottle of whisky from the other and then said: 'Look here, you just hav6 a drink of that, or my gun'U go off.* Would you believe it! I haven't had to pay for a drop of liquor since 1 came here to distribute teetotal tracts." Not Looking for Notoriety. No author of the day has been less photographed than Joseph Conrad, who has just published a book of sea stories. His publishers, when his book was about to come out, having failed to persuade him to face the camera for a new picture, hunted high and low throughout England and America for sorr sort of likeness. Finally, in the files of an old English Illustrated magazine, someone stum bled upon a small oval head of him, and It is fiom that haif-tone, enlarged and retouched, that all pictures of Conrad recently published have been made. Historic Portrait Spoiled. Among the best portraits in the white house previous to the recent "renovation' was that of Mrs. Benja min Harrison by Daniel Huntington, for many years America's foremost portrait painter. In the "restoration" this portrait has been rehung to suit some modem interpretation of the alleged original plan of the mansion by George "Washington. In doing this the paint has been scratched and scraped and in some important spaces has been knocked off entirely. Worse than this, a hole about three inches long has been punched in the canvas. seraij, "'BA 'asfouBOH1 s^qSieti jepuB-iS o) no sse-id uni eq j_qj jsarqi Sapunq stq qouanb pmo._ ja -ABJ} AivdAs.

Such a" man as Rockefeller or MOP gan is a life study for a physician, and the man who can keep in perfect ordor a human machine of vast im portance in the community is worthy of Schwabian compensation. Th big insurance companies are willing to employ a physician at $100,000 a year to keep either of the gentlemen mentioned alive ten years longer. "My" doctor in such a case must know what medicine to prescribe whenever Morgan or Rockefeller sneezes, frowns, swears, limps, groans, growls, thunders, kicks over the waste basket, smokes too many cigars, drinks too much water, eats too heartily of corned beef and cab bage, talks too much to his Bible class, charges too smah a commis iion for promoting a trust or reor ganizing a railroad, telegraphs' sena tors to hold up anti-trust legislation, or commit, any other little indiscre tion that billionaire flesh is heir to. He must be familiar with the slight, est symptom and ready with his dose. New York Press. FOG AS A BEAUTIFIER. New York Society Woman Divulges Mrs. Langtry's Secret. Mrs. Langtry attended a reception in New York last week and roused much envy among fashionables who were present because of her beautiful complexion, which-is really a marvel. Subsequently a rather faded beauty exclaimed "How on earth does she do It? Why, she's 50 if she's a minute." Another grande dame, who spoke as though she knew, gave this explana tion: "It's Jersey, her birthplace. You know Mrs. Langtry spends six or eight weeks every season OD her farm there. She wears a short skirt and thick bootssometimes no boots at all goes about in a sunbonnet and lives like a farm gfrl. The fog of the island te the rast." Mrs. Morgan Not FashlonaDie. Mrs. J. Pierpont Morgan was "the cynosure of all eyes" at the recent election of the Colonial Dames at New York. Contrary to the expectations of those who did not know her it was found that she dresses simply and her cloth gown looked rusty. Her black hat was small and shapeless and a thick veil covered her face. The decision of the women who s_w her was embraced in she word "frumpy." Mrs. .Morgan's disposition is exceed lngly retiring and whenever she ap pears in public she seems ill at ea3e. Cure for Smallpox. A subscriber requests the publics* Uon of the following: "I am willing to risk my reputation as a public man," wrote Edward Hi_.es to the Liverpool Mercury, "if the worst case of smallpox cannot be cured in three days, simply by the use of cream of tartar. One ounce of cream of tar- i W dissolved at intervals when cold is a certain, never-failing remedy. It has cured thousands, never leaves a mark, never causes blindness and avoids tedious lingering."Cantoa Baturdav Roller. \\i it/ Daily Pioneer Want Ads, One Cent a Word ..^___fc&__-fcfc^&&&fcfcfcC:C:__ C:_^&_p_t^ff-_%, Lakeside Bakery All ye who become hungry""during this IENCAMPMENT WEEK S a 2J $ Do not forget that you can get the $ jjj Finest Cakes, Pies, Fruits, Ice vi Cream and Lunch Material in the jjj $ city at the Lakeside Bakery GENERAL ORDERS NO. 1. FILARIA 18 A NEW DISEASE. Responsible for the Death of Mnr.y American Soldiers. Capt Charles Kieeffer. a United States army surgeon, says the Phil ippines are infested with mosquitoes more troublesome auri dangerous from a medical point of view than those that swarm in the Jersey swamps. A strange malady known as filaria is traced directly to them, and is com mon among the American soldiers quartered on the islands. Soldiers contract the disease by drinking water from stagnant pools in which the mosquitoes have laid their eggs. The first indication of filaria ap* pears in the form of a worm in the victim's thorax. This develops into elephantiasis, which causes the pa tient terrible pams, accompanied by a constant cough. The sufferer is worst at night, and the patient be comes a prey to insomnia. The only remedy lies in an opera tion, which in itself is dangerous and rarely successful. If the worm, which is a female, is injured and dies through the operation, its poison gets Into the blood, the disease is increased a thousandfold and the chances of re covery are small. Milky Sea Is a Puzzle. The milky sea, as it is known to mariners, is not yet fully understood. It seems to be most common In tne tropical waters of the Indian ocean, and is described as weird, ghastly and awe-inspiring, and as giving the ob server on shipboard the sensation of passing through a sort of lumineus fog in which sea and sky seem to join and all sense of distance Is lost. The phenomenon is probably due to some form, of phosphorescence. Full of Absentees. There was a larger attendance than usual in the "Ame" corner" at the Fifth Avenue hotel last night, and these we-e some of the interesting stories told: "Judge Gildersleere," re marked George. W. Wanamaker, "was telling the other night of a laughable bull' made by Maj. Leach, once fa mous as the head of the Irish rifle team. The judge was visiting to. Ire land and remarked: 'Major, is it true that much of the trouble in this little country of yours is caused by ab sentee landlords?' 'It is, sir,' re sponded the major. 'Sure, our little is land is full of them.'"-New York Mail and Express. The One Thing Wrong. A foreigner went into one of Boa ton's bij hotels one Suiiday morning not long ago and asked lor a typical Boston breakfast. After some con ference with the head waiter an espe cially nice breakfast was served, In eluding of course codfish balla, brown bread and pork and beans. The visitor ate with apparent relish, but after some minutes oummoned his man, "These beans are delicious," he said, "and the coffee could not be better, but"pointing to the codfish ball "you may remove the little bun.
