U. S. SHIPS' VISIT
WORRIES
MEXICO
EXPLANATION OF SENDING FOUR !
VESSELS UNSATISFACTORY,
STIRS UNEASINESS.
NOTE CAUSES ILL FEELING
Negotiations, Started in September,
Are Unsatisfactory to Both Coun
tries New Minister to
Grant Amnesty.
Mexico City. Mexicans are not
wholly reassured by the Washington
declarations and are keenly interested
in the proposed visit of four Ameri
can battleships to Vera Cruz and the
motive for their coming.
Much interest is displayed in the
character of the Mexican note reply
ing to that which the United States
sent to Mexico in September.
It is no secret that the American
note is not pleasing to the Mexican
government, and the failure, of the
Mexican foreign office tJ discuss the
nature of the reply gives some basis
for believing it is not entirely pleas
ing to Washington.
Convinced numerous bands of reb
els in the states of Durango, Coahuila
and southern Chihuahua are contin
uing their operations merely because
they believe surrender would mean
summary execution under the suspen
sion of guarantees, Rafael Hernandez,
the new minister of the interior, an
nounced that be would attempt to
gain for them a promise of amnesty.
Gen. Orozco Reappears.
Minister Hernandez has issued a
general order to the rurales to com
mandeer horses when needed, giving
receipts to the owners 'and notifying
the government. The rurales have
complained that frequently they are
unable to follow the insurrectos on ac
count of worn-out mounts.
Out of the mass of rumors as to the
whereabouts of Gen. Orozco, that
most credited is the report that he
has reappeared at the head of some
hundreds of men east of Ojinaga, in
the state of Chihuahua, after recuper
ating from a serious sickness.
The governor of Vera Cruz reports
that with the capture of Garcia Bravo
near Tuxpam, "the last band of rebels
Ya the state has been exterminated."
Borrowed Gun Protects Train.
El Paso, Tex. A machine gun bor
rowed from a Mexican gunboat is be
ing used to protect a troops train
which left Juarez to patrol the rail
ways between the state capital and
the border. The gun is mounted on
a flat car.
The train, carrying 500 troops, de
parted over the Mexico Northwestern
railway shortly after arriving over the
Mexican Central line. It is planned
to continue making this loop between
Chihuahua city and Juarez.
Movies Made Him a Bandit.
Los Angeles, Cal. Moving picture
shows caused his downfall, according
to Cornelius Hadsaucknr, who pleaded
guilty to highway robbery, after which J
he made a pathetic appeal for probrt-
tion. The "movies," according to the j
prisoner, showed him "how easy it i
was done." !
Carnegie Strike to Spread.
Pittsburg. That a walkout of nt
least 10,000 steel workers is threaT
ened here if the Carnegie Steel com
pany attempts to resume operations
in Oil departments, using strikebreak
ers In the places of the striking train
men, was the persistent report here.
Money for Chinese War Fund.
San Francisco. The Chinese con
sulate announced that, two subscrip
tions to the Mongolian war fund of
$20,000 each had been received from
New York and Cuba. It is said that
every largo city in the country will
contribute at least $30,000.

WHEN A FELLER
WINS POST SUIT
DENIAL OF INJUNCTION IS AF
FIRMED IN HIGHER COURT.
Buck Stove Manufacturing Plant to
Be Conducted on "Closed Shop"
Basis Held to Be Legal.
St. Louis. An opinion handed down
by the United States court of appeals,
in the suit of C. W. Post, minority
stockholder in the Buck Stove and
Range company, who sought an in
junction restrainng the company from
entering into an agreement with the
labor unions whereby the manufac
turing plant of the company should
be conducted on a "closed shop"
basis, was a decided victory for the
labor unions.
The opinion, which was written by
Judge William C. Hook, and con
curred in by Judges Walter H. San
born and Walter I. Smith, sustains
the decision of Judge D. P. Dyer, in
the United States district court, who
denied Post the injunction he sought.
For years the Buck Stove and
Range company, of which J. W. Van
Cleve was president, fought union la
bor in its plant. After the death of
Van Cleve iu 1910 the company then
entered into the agreement whereby
it would employ nothing but union la
bor in the plant. Post, who owns
$55,000 of the preferred stock and
$55,000 of the common stock of the
company, the capital stock being
$1,500,000, filed the injunction suit in
the United States district court, hold
ing that the agreement wa sillegal.
contrary to public policy and in vio
lation of an act of congress adopted
in July, 1890. relative to public trade
and commerce, claiming that the em
ployment of union labor would be a
violation of the act.
Judge Dyer held that there were no
grounds for the injunction, and the
court of appeals has sustained his
decision.

CHICAGO TRISUMC
"YOUNG" JURKS OUSTED
CABINET ABROGATES CONSTITU
TION A3 UNSATISFACTORY.
Nazim Pasha Always Had Opposed
New Order Constitutionalists
Gradually Weeded Out.
Constantinople. The cabinet de
cided to abrogate the Turkish consti
tution, declaring that after nearly
four years' trial it has proved wholly
unsatisfactory.
In the general excitement over the
war, Constantinople did not seem to
realize at first that the government's
announcement amounted to nothing
less than another revolution.
Preparations for the step had been
made very carefully. For days past
the authorities have been quietly
gathering in the Young Turkish lead
ers and iaking them to places of con
finement on the Asiatic side of the
Bosphorus. Constitutionalists in high
any posts have been weeded out
gradually and men who were known
to believe popular government poorly
adapted to Turkish requirements put
in their places.
Nazim Pasha, the minister of war
and active commander of the army,
has always opposed the Young Turks.
Enver Bey, the ablest man iu the
Young Turkish organization, has been
in Tripoli since soon after the out
break of the war with Italy.
The coup evidently was the result
of long, careful planning. Everything
indicated that the Absolutists had
been awaiting their opportunity for
months. The war with the Balkan
allies furnished this opportunity.
The Young Turks were wonderfully
clever as conspirators, but none of
them have administrative ability. In
stead of devoting themselves to the
business of real reform when they
giiined control of the government,
.hey played politics.
They were theorists, and each had
a different theory of government
which he insisted on trying.

ADMITS KILLING TWO BOYS
CHEMIST CONFESSES MURDERS
TO BUFFALO POLICE.
Blames His Downfall to Drink Con
fesses Writing Postcards That
Led to Finding of Body.
Buffalo, New York. District At
torney Dudley announced that J.
Frank Hickey, the chemist, had con
fessed to the murder of Joseph Jo
sephs, and also to the killing of Frank
Krucke, a New York newsboy, who
was found strangled in Central park
10 years ago.
Hickey began his story calmly and
deliberately, but when he came to the
part of actually committing the mur
ders he broke down and wept.
"Drink, drink, that's what caused
my terrible downfall," the man ex
claimed as his frame shook with sobs.
"I've stood it as long as I could, but
I've got to confess. Oh, the hell my
life his been since that time, when
late in the afternoon of October 12, I
lured that little Syrian lad to his
awful doom.
"Yes. 1 wrote the postcards. I
wrote them mostly when I was drunk.
I drank to try and get away from my
remorse, and for a time it seemed
that I would forget it, but in these
spells I used to become conscience
stricken, though in a different man
ner, and write the cards telling of my
state of mind."

NEVER WITH RED HAIR
HISTORY RECORDS NO GREAT
GENIUS THUS ADORNED.
Men of Eminence Have Been, but Nat
Those of Genuine and Deathless
Fame As to Beards and
Ringlets.
History 6hows that no great genius
ever had red hair. Alone among the
poets of the world was Swinburne,
whose hair was distinctly reddish, and
among the great reformers only John
Bunyan's hair was really red. The
simon-pure carrotty head, however, ap
pears ncwhere linked to world fame.
Tbe flaxen-haired blonde or the man
whose hair when an adult is a true
yellow also remains marked apart us
being unlikely to possess genius.
Should one such be. bis only com
panion will be Thackeray, whose hair
Is a scribed as yellow. Mr. Charles
Kassel has reviewed the biographies
of most of the eminent people of the
world's histories and tabulated his re
sults so far as the color of the hair is
concerned.
Dark brown to black is the prevail
ing hue on the heads of great men. A
list of fifty names has been compiled
in which the color of the hair is given
by biographers, and 90 per cent, are
dark brown or black. There Is not,
strange to say, a single mention of
premature grayness. nor a single case
of that ashen brown hair known as
"singed" or "mouse color."
The structure of the hair whether
straight or curly Is given in twenty
six of Mr. Kas8el's list of geniuses,
and of these all but four possessed
curly or wavy hair. It is extremely
notable that of the remaining four.
Napoleon and Andrew Jackson were
the two remarkable for "wiry hair,"
and that James Russell Lowell and
Grelg were those having lank straight
hair. The poet's "ringlets" and the
musician's shock of hair are by this
list seen not to be mere accidents,
but in some strange way are co-ordinated
to their powers and the general
popular instinct is not at fault.
The color of beards also arouses
many points of interest. All the an
cient tapestries show Cain and Judas
Iscariot with yellow or red beards,
and Pontius Pilate in ancient art al
ways was given a beard. (Being a Ro
man of good family, he probably had
no beard, but those details did not
trouble the old masters.) A reddish
beard, however, does not carry the sig
nificance that goes with red hair, for'
a large number of eminent men with
dark brown hair have had reddish
beards.. SomeUmes the eyelashes have
been ruddy, Savonarola, Who had al
most black hair, having startllngly
red eyebrows and eyelashes. But, as
a general rule here also, a silky brown
beard when accompanied by fine cur
ling dark-brown hair, iB the most
usual characteristic shown In the
biographies of those men whotse
names have been handed down to
fame. New York World.
Ideal Hosts.
"English country houses are, to my
taste, the most elegant and at the
same time the most comfortable places
imaginable. In my Indian sketches I
have already paid tribute to the won
derful hospitality of the Briton, and I
should like to mention it gratefully
again. At home we are apt to think
j a guest must be everlastingly amused;
1 he is worn to death with the occupa
! tions, pleasures, 'sight-seeing,' provid
! ed by his host. There Is nothing of
this kind in England. Unless there
is something special on foot, such as
a shoot, each guest Is absolutely his !
own master. The whole house and
home of the hosts Is in the fullest
sense of the word at the guest's abso-
I lute disposal. He only has to say the
word, and he can ride, motor, fish,
shoot, sail, play tennis, or flirt every
thing is at his hand. The English ex

Out of the Past.
Not long ago, from the clay of a
railway cutting near Spokane, Wash.,
there was taken a little bit of vege
table fiber the leaf of a gingko tree
which must have flourished something
like 100,000 years ago. There are
fossils of even greater ae. of course,
but this leaf Is 0)111 a leaf, not a mere
Imprint in stone; and It Is undoubt
edly the oldest known bit of vegetable
matter in the world.
The particular species to which it
belonged became extinct long ago;
its only surviving relative is the ging
ko tree of Japan. Its appearance at
the point where it was found proas
to geologists that It grew and fell
when the Cascade and Coast Range
mountains had not yet been formed,
and the Rockies themselves were
young.
Vegetarian Tips.
The man who had forsworn meat
wound up his first vegetarian dinner
with the accustomed tip. The next
day" the service was Indifferent, the
third day It was abominable.
"What's the matter with that fel
low, anyhow?" he growled. "He used
to be a good waiter. Now he sinfply
throws things at you."
"That'? because you don't tip him
enough," said the man opposite.
"Waiters always expect a bigger tip
for serving a vegetarian meals. It
takes such a variety of things to
make up for meat that they have to
handle more dishes and make more
trips to the kitchen. Any sjood waiter
would rather serve one meat dinner
than two of vegetables, and unless he
gets tipped generously he gets ugly.'

The following after-dinner story
was related by Br. Henry Churchill

fore the Chicago Congregational club

"I was Btandlng out In front of one
of the big exposition buildings at the
St. Ixmis Fair, when a man came out
of the building much the worse for
liquor.
" 'What's the name of thlsh here,
building?" he asked, as he reeled away.
"I told him the name of the build
ing. " 'Thanks,' he said, 'I was just In
It, and I wanted to check it off.' "

A DOCTOR'S SLEEP
Found He Had to Leave Off Coffee.
Many persons do not realize that a
bad stomach will cause insomnia.
Coffee and tea drinking being such
an ancient and respectable form of
habit, few realize that the drug caf
feine contained In coffee and tea. Is
one of the principal causes of dys
pepsia and nervous troubles.
Without their usual portion of cof
fee or tea, the caffeine topers are
nervous, irritable and fretful. That's
the way with a whisky drinker. He
has got to have his dram "to Bettle his
nerves" habit.
To leave off coffee or tea 1h an easy
matter if you want to try it, because
Postum gives a gentle but natural
support to the nerves and does not
contain any drug nothing but food.
Physicians know this to be true, as
one from Ga. writes:
"I have cured myself of a long
standing case of Nervous Dyspepsia
by leaving off coffee and using Post
um," says the doctor.
"I also enjoy refreshing sleep, to
which I've been an utter stranger for
20 years.
"In treating dyspepsia In its various
types, I find little trouble when I can
Induce patients to quit coffee and
adopt Postum."
The Dr. is right and "there's a
reason." Read tbe little book. "The
Road to Wellville," in pkgs.
Postum now comes In concentrated,
powder form called Instant Postum.
It is prepared by stirring a level tern
spoonful in a cup of hot water, adding
sugar to taste, and enough cream to
bring the color to golden brown.
Instant Postum is convenient;
there's no waste; and the flavour is
always uniform. Sold by grocers 50
