It Is doubtful If the youthful mon- . .1.

When he takes a fancy to a particu lar tweed or cloth he will often order a dozen suits from It straightway and wear each but two or three times. If he tires of the material before he has worn the whole dozen he will have the lot put out of the royal wardrobe. It would be difficult to say how many suits of clothes the1 king of Spain or ders In the year. The number greatly varies. Some times King Alfonso will order as many as a couple of dozen suits at a time, while at other times he will give his tailor, or rather one of them, for he patronizes several, an order for but one or two suite. The king of Spain keeps from 100 to 150 suits In the royal wardrobes and buys on an average of 100 suits year. His majesty's bill to his tailor alone averages $5,000 a year, of which sum London tailors get a good share. There Is one London tailor who, when the king of Spain was the guest of the duke of Westminster at Eton hall some little while ago, took an order from the Spanish monarch for 40 suits. The tailor was asked by wire to go to the duke's residence,, and returned to London with the largest single or der he ever received in his pocket There Is no monarch who Is so punc tilious about being dressed In the ez- Suicide Is An Exception Gradual Increase in Breaking of Law Among Younger Males Also Shown by Statistics. New York. That married men are better than single ones Is the' most remarkable feature of a report of an Investigation made by the district at torney's office which has Just been made public. Out of the 2,857 men convicted last year only J84 were married, as compared to 2,068 who were unmarried. The one startling exception is in the case of suicide, the report showing that among men who attempt to take their owu lives the married outnumber the single three to one. A comparison for the last nine years gives 7,670 convictions of married men for all sorts of crimes and 18,406 con victions of unmarried men. The re port indicates that there is a gradual Increase In crime among young men, the male crlraiuals under the age treme of fashion as his Spanish maj esty. Any suit the cut of which has become In the least out of date Is at once put out of the royal wardrobe, though it may only have been worn by Morel.the king once, or possibly nqA worn at all. The king of Spain has not any particular fancy for any material (except perhaps a striped flannel for summer wear) so far as the pattern King Alfonso of Spain. goes. He appears equally often In light and dark clothes of different pat terns, but he never wears a heavy ma terial of any sart. His majesty has a particular liking for fancy waistcoats. He buys doz ens of them and pays from $15 to $25 apiece for them. In waistcoats alone he spends at least $1,000 a year. When he came over to the English court In 1905 to woo the then Prin cess Ena he had in his wardrobe some waistcoats of rather more remarkable pattern than was possible even for a monarch to wear, in England at all events, without being thought to vio late good taste. of thirty years having increased in number from 1,700 in 1904 to 2,200 in 1912.

For two honrs after ho had beeu declared dead from drowning the young wife and other relatives of Edgar Manjo watched spellbound around him at Babylon, L. I., as Dr. D. W. Wynkoop slowly brought him back to life, forcing his heart to beat with an electrical device. For long it was believed the young man would be saved, but suddenly respiration ceased and could not agatn be restored. Monjo, who was only tw?nty. was a son of Lewis Monjo. a retired export broker, woll known on Wall street, and son-in-law of Commodore Searle of the Babylon Yacht club. With hi wife he was spending the holiday at her parents' home and went batlviag with his little niece. Susan Searle. A few minutes after they had start ed the child burst, sobbing. Into the Searle house, crying "Uncle Is drown ed!" When she grew calm enough to tell her story it was evident that Monjo gave his life to save hers. The two had waded out into the river hand-ln-hand Apparently they had stepped unexpectedly Into a deep hole or off a ledge of ground. Monjo, realizing that he could not swim, had with a last desperate effort thrown his niece back into the shallow, safe water as he himself went undor. Dr. Wynkoop, "a local physician, was summoned. He got two short lergths of wire and placed one at the base of Monjo's tongue and the other against his diaphragm and connected the free ends with an electrode. Monjo had been pronounced dead more than two hours when Dr. Wynkoop began his treatment. An hour after the electrical ma chine was set in operation the awed spectators started back in astonish ment. There were signs of returning life. First came a scarcely perceptible movement of the heart. 'Then slowly that organ resumed its functions aad respiration was restored. For two hours the heart beat regu larly and respiration continued. The young wife hung over her husband praying that ho might be restored to her and waiting, for too return of con sciousness. But consciousness did not return and suddenly both respiration and heart stopped and could not be re-started. Dr. Wynkoop said he was greatly grieved his efforts had railed. It was the first time, he said, his treatment had been applied to a human being. He had been experimenting with ani mals some time and had revived many after death, as ordinarily understood, had taken place. He believed that had it been possible for him to begin earlier he would have saved Manjo's life. He explained that he turned the current on twenty times to the min ute. No More State Bread. Paris. A Dutch invention will shortly be put into practice here which, it is said, will be as great a boon to bakers as it will to house keepers. It is the application of cold storage to freshly baked bread, bo that there need be no more night work for the bakers. The process is exceedingly complicated and scien tific, but the method of operation is simple enough. The baker's oven Is to be supplemented with a refrigerat ing chamber containing Just as many degrees of cold as there are degrees of heat in the open. The baker aft er baking his bread places It in the ice chamber and keeps It at a-temperature of a degree or two below zero.

A seven-room cottage house that may be built for about $2,000 under favorable circumstances, Is Illustrated in the architect's perspective and floor plans here given. Downstairs there are a parlor, dining room, and kitchen, with one bedroom, besides a bathroom having one entrance from the bedroom and another entrance from the kitchen, which facilitates warming the bathroom from the kitch en when there is no Are in the fur nace. There is a convenient grade entrance to the cellar, which may be reached by four steps down from the kitchen. This arrangement leaves, room In the corner of the entrance for a good-sized refrigerator a pro vision that is valuable In any hjuse, and one that le appreciated by ivery housekeeper. The size of this little cottage Is 28 flset wide by 38 feet long, exclusive of the porch, which Is not very large on the ground and not very high; but there Is room for four rooms down stairs and three rooms upstairs, with a -good, unfinished attic for storage; and there is plenty of closet room. A woman nevjr gets too many closets. Architects are often worried because of the demand for more closets than they can find room for. One advan tage of arranging bedrooms In a roof like this. Is that the low portions of the roof may be used to advantage for this purpose. Some women prefer an attio over the bedroom, but many would rather have a etorerootn of this kind because it saves climbing two pairs of stairs. It is impossible to have every good thing included in one plan Cottage houses may be lighter In construction than two-story houses, and they are more economical where tho roof space is utilized as it Is In this house. Some years ago a man built a house First Floor Plan. like this on a good at ing city.

In less than a year's time, his little cottage was pointed out as be ing the most attractive home on the, street. Instead of being a damage to other property, It was a valuable ac quisition. A great deal depends on the way things are done. It Is easy to put up a big barn or a house that no one likes, and it is Just as easy to Tj u BCO rto&vt BCD ROOM Second Floor Plan. build a cottage house like this for a small outlay and make it Into a very interesting property proposition. "Rose Cottage," as he called his lit tle home, was talked about, and soon became known away beyond Its lm mediate neighborhood, because It wob such a neat, pretty home. It was built soon after the hard times in the early nineties, when building materials were plentiful and money was scarce, when grass grew between the plies of lumber in the yards, and lumber was rotting in the piles while good m chanics were begging for work at an J kind of wages. The lot cost $700; and the house was completed, including plumbing, furnace, and piping for gas, for less than $1,000, making the whole property cost about $1,G75, which was $1,000 more than the owner had to put into it. It required good persua sive powers to Induce a money-lender to advance such a fabulous sum. as $1,000, and the borrower had to put up personal security as a side issue to a money shark to get the deal through all of which Illustrates the difference between doing business in good times and bad times. It will be noticed that the roome. while not large, are big enough to ac commodate the necessary furniture, and big enough for comfort. There Is not a room tn the house that is small enough or awkward enough to be ashamed of. A house of this size gives an opportunity to have a bedroom downstairs a convenl xe that e'fery house does not possess. There is gen erally, in most families, at least one old person who objects to climbing stairs. It would be difficult to arrange a more comfortable bedroom than this one; In fact, few large houses have a room of this kind. As a usual thing, when building, too little atten tion is paid to the comfort of the old people. They have spent their lives in the Interests of tho family, and It Is only right that they should be re membered in their old age. We fre quently see aged people who are com pelled to stay upstairs day after day because they dread the trip up and dowo.
