3 A NARROW ESCAPE By SAMUEL E. BRANT When young Mrs. Marshal enrae to h., knowing that the start one makes sociully in a pluce counts for a good deal, she made herself agreeable to every one, became familiar with only the best, was careful that her costumes were cut in the latest fashion, and, lince the dominant circle admitted of ravallers for their prominent members, she rather encouraged the attentions tt Huntington Dabney. It must be admitted that keeping Mr. rJabney up to bis duties as her cavalier vns hard work. His main ac complishment was leading a cotillion, . and he was not known to have any secondary ' one. Mrs. Marshall could stand to be put in a straitjacket cos tume and listen to society gossip, in cluding private quarrels and the mls liap of the last social climber who had fallen from nn upper round of the lad der to the bottom, but found it tire some, indeed, to pretend to be flirting with Huntington Dabney in a solitary corner at n function In order to main tain a reputation for being one of those ladles to whom husband and children are a bore. And it was the harder for her because she was devoted both to her husband and her children. As for Mr. Marshall, she told him in the be ginning what her designs really mounted to, but he didn't take suffi cient interest in the matter to remem ber the explanation. Among the other penalties Mrs. Mar shall must pay for effecting an entrance Into I society was the sitting In tight llippers for several hours at dinnerpar ties. Her feet were tender, and for this reason her footwear was made of light material, but even silken slippers. made very small, binding the feet for hours on a stretch, will at last cause pain. It was sitting thus at a dinner party for an unusually long period that brought about a mishap to Mrs. Mar shall that came very near plunging ber to the foot of the social ladder and rendering ber fall so unfortunate that she would not have been able to begin to climb again. At the dinner in question Mr. Dab ney was assigned to take Mrs. Mar shall out, Mr. Marshall having been ( honored by being assigned to the host ess. Mrs. Marshall's shoe pinched, and after enduring a long period of suffer ing she slipped it off. Mr. Dabney, who was a restless man, must needs kick bis legs about under the table till he sent the slipper off to parts un known. When at last the innumera ble courses had been finished and a pousse cafe put a close upon the feast the diners arose to go'into another part of the house for a cotillion.. Mrs. Marshall, who had for some time been feeling with her toe for the missing slipper, finding that without some expedient she must go with the others in a stocking foot, so to speak, when the party were rising, kept her seat, talking very hard to her cavalier, pretending to be so wrapt in her sub ject as not to notice the movement. Of course the gentleman kept his seat, too, and was all attention. The lady watched out of the corner of her eye the retiring guests and saw that no especial notice was taken of her re maining behind. As soon as the oth ers were all gone she informed Mr. Dabney that she had lost her slipper under the table and had lagged behind to recover it. Dabney started to get It himself, but the lady stopped him and, getting down, groped for the missing article. It was dark down there, and Mrs. Marshall was nearsighted. She hunted some time without success. Then Mr. Dabney's gallantry got the better of his discretion, and down he, too, went under the table to help. The host had scarcely left the dining room before he proposed that the men return for a pony brandy. Several of the ladies whose beads were not easily overturned by spirituous beverages de clared that they, too, wanted "anoth er." Suddenly the dining room door was thrown open, and a merry party entered. Mrs. Marshall, realizing the horror of the situation of being caught under tl table with her cavalier, whispered to him: . "For heaven's sake be still!" Mr. Dabney obeyed orders. What else could he do? The host poured the liquor and all were standing around the table ready to drink when' those under it heard bim say: "What the deuce became of Dabney and Mrs. Marshall? They didn't leave the dining room with the rest of us." "They must have gone out by anoth er door' suggested one of the women. "Drink her down," said the host, "and we'll go and look for them. They must have gone up that stairway. I don't allow any scattering in my house," he added Jocularly. The revelers tossed off the brandy rind ran laughing up the staircase. As soon us the Inst one had disap peared Mrs. Marshall scrambled out and ran like a deer to an unoccupied music room, followed by Mr. Dabnev with the slipper. Then Mrs. Marshall eat down to a piano and began to run over the keys. This brought those who hunted for them, and all ex rlaimed: "Plow did you do it?" When Mrs. Marshall that night be fore going to bed told her husband of the narrow escape she had bad he looked at her in holy horror. "Great Scott mummy," he exclaim ed, "that's the nearest thing to a catas trophe that ever happened in this fam ily r HOUSE IN TALL TIMBER Littlefield Explains Effect of Gompers Lobby on Legislation EX-CONRESSMAN BEFORE COMMITTEE lands Softandliite Declares Colleagues Were Scared by Samuel Gompers Washington, Sept. 20. The House lobby committee abandoned work on its report yesterday long enough to hear former Representative Charles E. Little field of Maine, who, according to the testimony of M. Mulhall, former lobby ist for the National Association of Man-, ufacturers, was one of the chief allies of that organization in the house. Mr. Ijit tlefield testified yesterday that be ginning with his entrance to congress in 1H09 until he resigned in 1908 he tound "an active, energetic and powerful labor lobby headed by Samuel Gompers." When Gompers opposed legislation, Mr. Littlefield said many members of the House found it convenient to side with labor. Mr. Littlefield said he did not in tend, to criticise members of the House for their position on labor bills. "But," he explained, "when Gompers and the labor people became active the tall tim ber was thickly populated and there was plenty of space in the open. Littlefield with Manufacturers. Mr. Littlefield frankly told the com mittee that his views of labor legislation coincided with those of the inanufactur ers and that early in his congressional career he gladly accepted the aid of the .National Association of Manufacturers through Marshall dishing, then its Washington representative. "Lushing was doing what he could to counteract the influence of (tampers and the Fed eration of Labor, said Littlefield. Lit tletield said that Mulhall went to his district in 1900 to help hi his campaign the more 1 saw of Mulhall," he said, the less I liked him. I told the Na tional Association of Manufacturers not to send hiin to my district again." Lit tlefield added that in this campaign he faced the opposition of Samuel Gompers and the American Federation of Labor. 1th CuticuraSoap ind Ointment Treatment: On retiring, soak the hands in hot water and Cuticura Soap.

Moral Influence Is Needed in Washing ton. Washington, Sept. 20. The big Dem ocratic majority in the House will be kept in Washington as a moral influence over the slender Democratic control in the Senate while the currency bill is under way, according to plans made yesterday by House leaders, who defi nitely rejected for the present at least, the idea of a thirty days' recess. After conference with J'resident Wilson. Representative A. Mitchell Palmer. chairman of the House caucus, said no effort would be made for an extended re cess for the House. It is understood the president believes the presence of the House will have the effect of strength ening the administrations efforts to pass the currency bill in the Senate. 150 YEARS' TERM FOR MURDER. STARVED NIECE TO SAVE MONEY New Mexico Judge Gives Longest Sen tence in State's Record. Estacia, N. M., Sept. 20. Probably the longest sentence ever meted out to a murderer in a New Mexico court was imposed yesterday by Judge Edward L. Medler in the district court here, when he accepted Justiano Moya's plea of guilty of murder in the second degree and sentenced him to the state peniten tiary for not less than 150 years and not more than 100 years. $9,600 Put in Bank Out of $16 a Week Young Woman Earned. New York, Sept. 20. A life of unre mitting toil and frequent hunger, hidden by an appearance of comfortable living, was disclosed in the report of Appraiser Martin on the estate of Mrs. Catherine Keller, who died March 19, 1911, leaving a total estate of $11,111.21 in bank ac counts. With the exception of $1,500 these bank deposits represented the sav ings above all living expenses for a fam ily of three from $16 a week earnings of Mrs. Keller's niece, Mrs. Ella A. Cot trel. In testifying before the appraiser to prove that the Dank accounts of Mrs. Keller were her own savings, to which she was rightfully entitled, Mrs. Cottrel told the story of her life. At the age of years in 1883, being an orphan, she went to live with her aunt, and from then on always called her mother and was introduced as her daughter. Mrs. Keller's husband, a bookkeeper, died four years later, U aving his wife about $1,S00. From that time on Mrs. Cottrel said she had worked incessantly, with the exception of the year following her marriage, winch resulted in her return ing to her "mother's" home with a daughter. Mrs. Cottrel is a watercolor artist and was formerly employed by a publishing nouse to no copy work. She told the appraiser she was paid by piece work. In addition she scrubbed floors. Her earnings she turned over to Mrs. Keller, who rented a $20-a month apart ment, furnished food and clothinc. and gave the breadwinner 20 cents a dav for carfare and luncheon. Ho poorly nourished was the worker that four months after Mrs. Keller's death her mind gave way and she was placed in an asylum for six months. Utlier witnesses bore out Mrs. Cot- trel's testimony. STATE PROHIBITION MOVE IN DENMARK Leader of New Liberal Party Starts Agi tation in Favor of It People Growing More Abstemous. Copenhagen, Sept. 20. I. C. Christcn sen, leader 'of the Liberal party, has started an agitation for statewide pro hibition in Denmark. Not long ago the Liberal party successfully fathered a bill which enforces important restric tions orTthe sale of liquor in bars, res taurants, and similar places, and the Liberal leader evidently intends to fol low this up with a law enforcing total prohibition of the sale of intoxicants in Denmark. v During the past few years the Danish people have become more and more ah stemious in their habits, and as the ypunger generation is especially tem perate, the agitation for prohibition is not based on any growing insobriety on the part of the people of the country. In explaining why the Liberal party, which stands for a large measure of personal liberty, should be backing such a bill, Mr. Clirttttensen says alcohol is a poison and that the state should forbid and regulate its use jimt as it does in the case of other recognized poisons. Until the late temperance legislation went into effect, Denmark had depended upon education to fight the evils of in temperance, and this is the first time the advocates of the prohibition movement have sought government regulation of the liquor traffic. It is believed that the people will ac quiesce in the proposed legislation in Spite of the alleged attack on pergonal liberty, which they feel must be limited for the benefit of the itommiinity. Some of the leading Liberal papers have pro tested strongly against the bill, one pointing out that a person is not edu cated bv making him incapable of man aging his own affairs, but by letting hun his life in the largest possible libertv under the responsibility of himself and the community. I he opposition paper attack the min ister's new policy, and insinuate that it is for the purpose of catching votes. TO WED ESKIMO. 'CASCARETS" FINE FOR THE BOWELS RECEIVED FOUR CENTENARIANS.

The Aga Khan, the immensely wealthy Prince of India, who among other things is head of the Mo hammedan religion in his country, caused a sensation at Deauville Casino recently by his high play at baccarat. He seemed to be iiuite indifferent wheth er he won or lost, and many people who onservea mm expressed tlieir conviction that he had no actual knowledge at any tune on tins point. it was tne custom oi tiie prince to go to tne gambling rooms accom panied by a servant carrying a valise full of bank notes. The prince, from time to time during the play, would either request his servant, who stood behind his chair, to remove the piles of winnings and stuff them in the valise, or else to supply him with fresh bundles of 1000-franc notes to hazard. Perhaps the servant was more observing thsn his master and knew whether fortune smiled or not, but to observers he was as inscrutable as the prince, and gave no sign. lhe Grand Duke Boris of Russia di vided the attention of onlookers with the Aga, frequently winning or losing 60,000 ($10(000) francs at a sitting. 750-POUND LUMP OF LOVELINESS. Denmark used to be famous for its lobster fisheries, but lately the tasty shell fish has grown so scarce that it has become very costly, so much so that the market here has been suceesfully in vaded by American canned lobster. After a long conference of scientific experts and practical fishermen, it has been decided to adopt the American method of hatching lobsters, and the work will be taken up all over Denmark under government auspices. The state will make a large contribution to the project. The Danish papers are issuing warn ing to bridegrooms under forty years of age not to get married this month. If they persist in planning weddings, they may be missing when the hour ar rives, for this is the month when the war department is expected to give twelve hours' notice of mobilization for iiiaiupuvres. All men under forty years of age who are liable to bear arms will be compelled to obey the summons, and not even a wedding will serve as an excuse. A COPENHAGEN WELCOME.

Hearing that Andrew Carnegie had telegraphed to -Copenhagen from liergen for hotel ac commodations, the city became Carnegie mad, and when his nephew, George Lauder Carnegie, turned up instead of the steel king, he received a reception at the railw-ay station which caused him to flee in dismay. From the day that the Copenhagen papers announced that the philanthro pist was coming to Copenhagen the American legation was overcrowded with people seeking introductions to the laird of Skibo. Many of them were possessed with a sincere desire to make the acquaintance of the library donor, but most of them had schemes for aid ing him in his philanthropic plans. Many women came to the American minister with most extraordinary devices which they wanted him to assist them in selling to Carnegie. One wanted him to buy what she said was a lock of Abraham Lincoln's bair, and another wanted to sell the ironmaster a portrait of John Kelly at "Saratoga.. People came from as tar as isorway ana Sweden to inter est Carnegie in charitable institutions in their countries. When the train arrived the station was crowded with newspaper men and towns people out to greet the Napoleon of charity, but no one appeared. Some one in the crowd heard a quiet 'young man tell a hotel porter that lie had en gaged rooms- at the hotel in the name of Carnegie. The shout went up, "Here he is, and before .George Lauder.

By Charges Assessed at Resorts in France. . Faris, Sept. 20. Americans taking their - vacations at French resorts tins season have been amazed at charges which appear to be higher than any where clue in the world. A room with a bath for 35 francs ($7) a day during July at one of the frequented hotels in Dea'uville, rose to 200 francs ($40) a day throughout August. The ordinary charge for a single room at the resort is 100 francs .?20) a dav. These are prices exited of all comers, whether Americans, Russian Grand Dukes or Frenchmen. A Parisian journalist made note of his experience at Deauville. The clerk at the first hotel he entered replied to his enquiry for a room that' one remained at 80 francs ($10) a day, just a room for one erson, with, of course, no bath. The clerk seemed to apologize for the low price, and to fear the visitor might suppose that a room at so trivial a rate could not be of much account.. "We abandon it to you at 80 francs," said he, "because it is not large, but it really is a good room." ' The enquirer hesitated at that and crossed the street to another eHtablishment. The best that could be done there was a room for 120 francs ($24) a dav; he returned and took the 80 franc room. A simple lunch at $.'11.00 (;W.30), a cab to the races after con- Biderable bargaining, 40 francs ($8), and dinner at 43 francs ($S.60) completed an expensive day. Foincare of France Had the Dis- Unction Recently. Faris, Sept. 20. President Foincare received four centenarians during his re cent visit to the Limousin Country. The eldest was 100. The youngest, loo years ; old, had been the village postmaster of Vaulry for sixty-seven years. The president was told, as are all vis itors to the Limousin, that health and long life are the finest products of the region.. Besides the four centenarians, the president was told often other per sons who were 09 years old, and of twenty near the village of Vaulry, who are in sound health, although well along in the tenth decade. 3d. Schomel-Roy, a resident of Ver sailles, has attracted attention to him self on account of his age. He recently started civil proceedings in an infringe ment case, and it came out during thp hearing that he was born August 5, 1S07, at Versailles, and that he saw Napoleon I frequently. Owing to the fact that his father had an appointment at Napo leon's court, M. Schomel-Roy frequent ly played with the little king of Rome. Finest Specimen of Mammoth. Count Stenboch Fermor, of the island of (Jreat Layakersky, New Siberia, has presented to the natural history mu seum in Paris what is considered to be the finest specimen of a mammoth yet found. The gift is especially interesting be cause the animal had not finished di gesting his last meal at the moment of his death, countless centuries ago. Thus lite savants are, for the first time, able to study accurately the nature of the flora of the far distant epoch; they have simply to examine the contents of the mammoth's stomach. He was found in an absolutely complete condition in a strata of ice. The skin which is without a scratch, is covered with reddish hair, thick and soft to the touch as that of a lap dog.

Some idea of the dimensions of this monster may be gained from the fact that a strong man can barely lift one section of the verte brae.

On the second occasion he said: "The premier in most constitutional countries must have two things in order to govern, first the confidence of par liament, and second the confidence of the crown. In Spain, however, three things are necessary, the confidence of parliament, the confidence of the crown, and confidence in the confidence of the crown. BESIEGED BY A BULL.
