PARIS, July 1 The Duchess of Va lencay, who was Helen Morton, daugh ter of Levi P. Morton, before her mar riage, has obtained a divorce from the Duke of Valencay. The case came up before the civil tribunal of the Seine, Maitre Raoul Rousset presenting the plea in behalf of the duchess and Maitre Emile Strauss defending in behalf of the duke. The proceedings were conducted fa the privacy which the French courts give to divorce cases. It is said that neither of the principals in the suit was present. One of the consequences of the deci sion is that the wife shall abandon her husband's name and title. The charges against the duke were ill treatment and neglect.

HH Mira INDIAN WIDOW SAINTLY. gb Is Always In Demand at Sacred Feasts Nurses mck and HB1f? Comf ot ts Dying. h- No institution of India has been so Mfltfcggerated as that of the widow, says Edmund Russell, in Everybody's Mag azine. She really occupies a place analo gous to our antique "old maid," now so fast disappearing in the girl-batchelor. The aged widow who has remained true to, her principles is regarded as a holy being, who has withstood a thousand temptations and persecutions and com mands the respect of a saint from all persona. She is the mother of all the children In the neighborhood, the help mate of all the neighbors. At evening they flock round to hear her repeat the nnnlflnt leeends. the stories of Sita and Saivtri Draupdia, or sing the songs of Bai. She is in great oemana wnen king is needed for a sacred feast. She teaches the little ones their first hymns and prayers. She nurses the sick, com forts the dying. She believes herself to be bound to her husband for everlasting time, through all births and deaths. The .entary separation here is but on :ade of her marriage, an unknowable ystery of destiny it breaks no tie. ORIGIN OF NUMERAL SYSTEM ?aper Head Before Philological So ciety Comments on Forerunners of Present Method. ilMtsreed About Cabbage Paten. AYBTTEVILLE, Ga., July 1. Iteve Renfroe, seventy-nine years old, shot his daughter-in-law through the head, killing her instantly. Renfroe and his daughter-in-law disagreed about a cabbage patch. Feeling ran high for awhile against the old man, but It is unlikely that violence will be Sonehim. -' ' ;!'- 7:'' In a paper read before the Philo logical society of the University of Michigan, recently, Prof. George Hempl commented upon the forerun ners of our present system of numera tion. Some two years ago, in seek ing the origin of the Runic letters (the first letters used by the Germanic races), Prof. Hempl discovered the primitive Germanic numeral notations. This threw new light upon the early Germanic numerical -system, as well as upon the primitive Indo-European nu merical system, and upon the develop ment of the Greek alphabet and the Greek numerical notation. The primi tive Indo-European numerical system was a mixture of the decimal and the sexagesimal. The first large number was the "shock," that is, 60, and the next large number was the "hund," or "hundred," that is, 120. Between 60 and 120 there were no numbers like our 70, etc., 70 being "a shock and 10," and 80 being "a shock.and 20." The Introduction of our present numbers between 60 and 120 arose out of the in-, troduction of the decimal hund or hun- flred, that is, 100, in distinction from which the old hundred (120) was called the duodecimal hundred, or the "great hundred," which is still used in Ice land and parts of Etesian d- Mt Barrymore Telia the Tale. NEW YORK, July 1 Having on board seventeen more passengers than had sailed with her from Cherbourg, the Deutschland of the .Hamburg American line has reached port here The additional voyagers were the en tire crew of the Gloucester fishing schooner Harry G. French, which the Deutschland sank off Nantucket at half past 12 o'clock Wednesday night. Miss Ethel Barrymore, who was on the Deutschland, appropriately added a few dramatic touches to the tale of the collision: "I had been on deck until a late hour," she said, "Uiwfle Jack (John Drew) keeping me company. I had gone to my stateroom and was making ready to retire when I heard loud voices and the hurried tramping of feet. I hastened back on deck and saw the crew getting lifeboats ready to lower, and then some one told me that we had run into some other vessel and sunk it, and while I was hoping and praying that no one had been drowned, but imaginfng people strangling to death out In that dreary fog, I heard a voice, a good, strong, nasal ' Yankee voice, saying, 'Why in blazes don't some of you fellows throw us a line?' ' GENEEAL MILES WOULD NOT ACCEPT George W. Carroll of Texas to Be Running; Mate ot Pennsylvania Candidate Tbe Platform a Broad One. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., July 1. The Prohibition party in national conven tion here nominated Silas C. Swallow of Pennsylvania for president and George W. Carroll of Texas for vice president. The platform was adopted without argument after a long dead lock in the resolutions committee. It was described by I. H. Ames -of Ore gon, secretary of the committee, as the broadest platform ever placed before the people by the party. In addition to the planks on the liq uor qi3stion it declares the party to be in favor of international arbitration, a suffrage law based on mental and mor al qualifications, uniform laws for the country and dependencies, popular election of senators, civil service ex tension and the initiative and referen dum. The trust question was recogniz ed by a demand for a rigid application of the principles of justice to all or ganizations. of capital and labor. A reform of divorce laws is demanded and polygamy denounced. General Miles put an end to the movement to nominate him for presi dent by sending to John G. Woolley a telegram from New York asking that bis name be not presented. This was considered final, and the movement to Mr. Swallow was unanimous, no oth er name being considered. ' Over $16,000 was raised by subscrip tion pledges froi the floor of the con vention, which., wit $11,000 in the treasury, will be the nucleus of the campaign fund. National Chairman Stewart and National Secretary Tate were re-elected. "", V Shipbuilding Cane Concluded. TRENTON, N J., July 1.

Bell of Walden was nominated for governor oh the first ballot by the Re publican state convention here. Al though the campaign conducted by the various candidates extended over tnree months, the delegates settled the con test in about three hours. The plat form strongly indorsed President Roose velt. recommended that franchis con ditions in the south be investigated and advised that the present liquor li cense law in Vermont be given a fur ther trial Electrical Storm Causes Explosion. EASTON, Md., July L The Rev. Dr. Samuel D; McOonnell, rector of AH Souls' Protestant Episcopal church, New York, went out in his naphtha ifitmch for a sail down the river. He had not proceeded far when a heavy electrical storm broke over him. The engine in the launch soon became heav ily charged with electricity and explod ed. The doctor was somewhat dazed, but retained his presence of mind and, being a good swimmer, jumped over board and got ashore. One sometimes passes through the ex perience of a lifetime in a dream that lasts but a few seconds or minutes, so rapid is the activity of the mind during semisomnolence. To the dreamer a vi sion sometimes seems to endure for hours, and the general impression is that dreams continue for minutes at least, while the fact is that the longest dream appears to be confined within a solitary second, even though the events of it may impress the dreamer for days. "The other afternoon," said a doctor, "I called to see a patient, and much to my satisfaction I found1 him sleep ing soundly. I sat by his bed, felt his pulse without disturbing him, and wait ed for him to awaken. After a few min utes a dealer's cart, with discordant ringing bells, turned the street, and as their first tones reached me my patient opened his eyes. " 'Doctor,' he said, 'I'm glad to see you, and awfully glad that you woke me, for I have been tortured by a mos- distress ing dream that must have lasted for several hours. I dreamed that I was sick, as I am, and that my boy came into the room with a string of most hor ribly sounding bells, and rang them in my ears, while I hadn't the power to move or speak to him. I suffered tor tures Jr what appeared to be inter minable time, and I'm so glad you awoke me.' - "The rinjrinar of those bells for one sec ond had caused all of that dream, and just at the waking moment." A Few may Wot Accept Nomination. HARRISBURG, Pa., July J.-rDr. Si las C. Swallow may decline the nomi nation for president after all. In re sponse to a congratulatory telegram he has sent the foHowing to Chairman Stewart of the Prohibition national convention: "If honor preferred to in your dispatch implies duties requiring my absence from home, while I highly appreciate any henor or duty the grandest party of the age can give me, yet unless Mrs.v SwalloWs health greatly improves I would be compelled to decline." . .

Several miles up the Menan river, itt Si am, winding picturesquely amid trop ical jungles and rice fields, lies Bang kok, -writes Michael White, in Four Track News. Because it is built chiefly unnn rilea and intersected by water ways, instead of streets, Bangkok has been likened to Venice. Two curious reasons are offered why it is so placed. Originally the present capital of Slam was established on the river hank, but without any sanitary provisions it soon became a gigantic hatchery of cholera germs. Without, of course, knowing anything of germ theories, the king of that time ordered the people to hulld in the rivej, so that the stream might cut as a natural drain. The other reason, and one which we might think would conflict with trie first, was that, as the national diet consisted principally of rice and fish, a'part of the meal could be obtained by dropping a line from whatever substitute there was for a window. fteaKPs F Jarrett, itate.

Stamped envelopes and postal cards free to all may he found in the lounge rooms of many theaters. Of this strik ing innovation a manager said the other day: "The public is profoundly im pressed with the free stamp novelty. Men go to the lounge rooms of the thea ters to smoke, and seeing free stamped envelopes and postal cards on the writ ine desk they are amazed. 'A very gen erous thing,' they say; 'a very nice thing on the management's part' And tney keen on smoking they don't write any letters. At the theater, you see, no ohe mm to write. The theater is for recre ation. not for work. Banking on that fact we introduced free stamps four months ago. Our munificence impresses the nublic. but it hardry costs us ten cents a week."
