FUTILITY OF HE BALLOT3 18 MADE KNOWN BY SMOKE SIGNALS. ROME IS BECOMING IMPATIENT LOUD CRIES, NOT ONLY OF DISAP- POINTMENT, BUT EVEN OF DERISION. Rome. Aug. 5.After three full days of deliberation, during which six bal lots have been taken, the members of the conclave still remain shut up In the Vatican without having selected a successor to Leo XIII. The futility of both ballots taken yesterday was evi denced by the smoke which rose from the Sistlne chapel. This mute signal last evening was watched by another large crowd which partly filled the square of San Pietro, and numbered about 15.000 persons. Great disap pointment was manifested and when the little puff of smo':e ^poeared there were loud cries, not only of disappoint ment, but even of derision. Rome is becoming extremely Impatient Over the Delay in the selection of the ntw pope, con cerning which there appears to be no I definite explanation, owing to the rigid i secrecy with which the proceedings within the conclave are guarded. Yes terday practically the only news which came from the Sisti^e chapel was that of the extremely grave illness of Cardi nal Herrero. It Ik presumed, however, that the other aged cardinals are also suffering from their prolonged incar ceration and the intense heat. Among ambassadors and eeclesias tics there exists a general opinion that I if only for the sake of relieving the aged cardinals, much may be sacrificed within the conclave to arrive at a speedy conclusion.

Some one who was interested in the fact has discovered that while Amer ican women are phorter than their Eng lish sisters, their legs are much more symmetrical and their ankles more graceful.

Here a woman will sit down In a rocking chair, and, appar ently happy, rock by the hour, were she not disturbed, perhaps not know ing that the mere movement employed to keep the chair li motion does, by repeated pushes of '.he toes, make the Instep high, the calf round and full, and so keep from the angle an accum ulation of flesh. American and English Railways. The reasons urgud In explanation of the great number of persons killed and Injured on American as compared with British railways are: Wo have more than eight times as many miles of road Great Britain has but 9,000 miles oi single track, while we have 176.000 miles in Great Britain roads can pay interest on an investment in construction of $200,i0 a mile, but many American roads built to develop Bparsely settled districts fall to pay an investment of $70,000 a mile heavy traffic in Great Britain justifies the. ex pense of block systems and interlock ing switches.
