Helen, Daughter of Levi P. Morton,
Freed From Due de Valncay.
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
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.

h- No institution of India has been so
Mfltfcggerated as that of the widow, says
Edmund Russell, in Everybody's Mag

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

they flock round to hear her repeat the

teaches the little ones their first hymns

She believes herself to be bound to

AYBTTEVILLE, Ga., July 1.
Iteve Renfroe, seventy-nine years old,

and his daughter-in-law disagreed
about a cabbage patch. Feeling ran

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

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

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
"The rinjrinar of those bells for one sec
ond had caused all of that dream, and
just at the waking moment."

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

grandest party of the age can give me,
yet unless Mrs.v SwalloWs health
greatly improves I would be compelled

Explanations as to Why
This Was Done.
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

Free Stamps and Postal Cards.
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
