Chinese Wife “Alla Samee ’Melican”

NEW YORK.—Quon She? Fee, fair
as the golden lily of the Hoang-
Ho, dainty as the purple plum that
ripens under tea house eaves at Can
ton, has skipped from her golden nest
at 9 Pell street, and there remain to
mourn her Lou Fee, her lord,
Mouchock. her white poodle, and Tee
lee, the yellow canary by the window.
Quon Shee Fee flew into a rage the
other night, hurled her husband's sup
per out of the window, beat her hus
band's cousin, Lou Pon, over the head
with a heavy fan. and then went out
Into the dark of Pell street to lose her
self from the sight of her outraged
lord and master. All Chinatown
hummed for days with the scandal.
“She make-ee d-sufllagette busi

the abused cousin, explained the flight
of Quon Shee Fee. Mournfully rubbing

Jelly Juggler Puts
CLEVELAND O—The “Battle of
Fort Jelly” Just now is the talk of
the North side.
With officers in front of him. officers
behind him. and officers circling all
around him, Frank Eingang, whose
home is thought to be at 165 Grant
jtreet, hurled Jars of Jelly and other
canned condiments at his assailants
the other day. The latter were trying
to capture his fort, which consisted
of the cellar of the residence of Mrs.
Henry W. Oliver, at 845 Ridge avenue,
Northslde. None of the members of
the family was at home, as the sum

jars of delicious sweets, which the be

that they were forced to retreat and
bold a council of war before they made
their final sally.
Eingang entered the cellar through
a window which he smashed with a
brick. Before entering he relieved him

telephoned the police. .In a few min-
Get More Milk by Serenading Cows
SPOKANE. —Practical dairymen and
veterinarians and animal psycholo
gists in the Spokane district and
throughout eastern Washington are
agreed that the theory advanced by
Josiah Grant of Wisconsin to increase
the milk supply by the introduction of
dreamy waltz music in the cow sta
bles is reasonably logical and worthy
of serious consideration.
Mrs. Joseph Rudersdorf, acting pres-*
ident of the Spokane Humane society,
is confident the theory is correct, say
ing: “Music affects and soothes every
animal or human being. Loud music
■would cause an animal to be nervous,
while soft music, which would soothe
the nerves of the cow, would naturally
increase the milk production.”

Lambs Are Slaughtered as Sacrifice
TOLEDO, O.—When a number of
East side residents saw several
men and women gathered about some
bleating lambs they held before them,
they thought little of it But when
they suddenly saw one of the men in
sert a knife in the neck of a lamb
they were amazed. They crowded
closer and saw these same men hold
the dying lamb while men and women
stood about reverently, muttering
sounds taken to be prayers.
All this appeared strange to those
who watched, and one of them, who
was angered at the slaughter of the
lambs on the open lot in the residen
tial district, called the police.
When the motor cops arrived they
found the watchers of the iambs sur
rounded by many other residents of
the East side. The man who slaugh
tered the first lamb cut the throat of
another. The live lambs stood near
The police learned that the lambs

that he conducts at 9 Pell street, be

the other morning, so he told Lieuten
ant Burke of the Elizabeth street sta
tion. He had been out playing dom-
L.oes the night before and had not
come home until after midnight.
When he did sneak into his cozy flat
over the store, his little Plum Blos

eye. just as a regular white w4fj would

There had been a fine row: this
much Lou Fee admitted. His spouse
had declared flatly that if he was go
ing to stay out all hours of the night
playing dominoes or fan-tan with the
other Four Brothers boys, he need not
expect to find a wife waiting for him
at home
But Lou Fee. who is high in the
councils of the Four Brothers, the im
placable enemies of the On Leong
Tong, told his wife very properly—by
Chinese standards, at least —to keep
her mouth shut. He would stay out
as late as he pleased. So yesterday
when dinner time, at 7 o’clock, the
lord of this suffragette spitfire was not
at home to partake of his evening
shark's fin.
But Cousin Lou Pon was and he

liceman and then another, in their ad

whiz past their heads and smash with
a Juicy crash against the wall. Try
as they might, they could not reach
the jelly javelin thrower.
After an inglorious retreat and a pa
laver as to the best means of obtaining
the surrender of the fort they return
ed to the attack, only to be met with a
different defense. Eingang had dis
carded his jelly Jars and assumed a
mallet. This he swung about his head.
When his attention was attracted by
revolver shots the three officers
pounced upon him. Wagonman Mall's
thumb was seized by the teeth of the
infuriated man and almost bitten off.
When Eingang finally was bound tight

was found that Sergeant Rea's hand

staff of the State of Washington col
lege, who conducted experiments
along similar lines while preparing a
work on animal psychology, said the
man who ridiculed the Grant idea is
merely betraying his ignorance.
"That idea is not to be treated light

soothes the nerves aids in the milk

are attracted or repelled by sounds.

Dr. Walter Baker, also a member
of the staff, recalled an experiment
where a dog secretes more saliva
while eating as music is being played,
and indorses the plan.
“I am inclined to think there may
be more than a grain of truth in the
reasoning, but I would not want Sousa
with his brass band to amuse my

get better results. In other words, I
would prefer Kubelik to Sousa to en

of Bulgarians, members of the Greek
Catholic church, who had begun the
observance of the feast of spring. The
proper observance of this custom, it
was learned, was for the sacrifice of
four lambs annually. After the lambs
were killed the carcasses were piled
upon a fine and roasted, the meat of
which was devoured by members of
the church as fulfilling their pat of
the sacrifice.
After the slaughter of the second
lamb the remaining two were taken to
a vacant house neaj by, where they
met the fate of the others. These also
were roasted upon the fine in the va»

Harvard Student Gives Details of Prof.
Levanzin's Experience—Man Placed
In Air-Tight Box for 33 Days
Without Food.
Boston. —Details of the scientific
starving of Prof. Agostino Levanzin at
the nutrition laboratory of the Car
negie Institute in Roxbury, conducted
by Prof. Francis Sano Benedict, and
which have been suppressed for days,
were made public by M. F. Tufts, a
senior at the Harvard dental school
and a former subject.
That Professor Lavanzin was virtu
ally a prisoner during the thirty-three
days of his fast and that during a part
of the time he was kept In a zinc air
tight coffin with his mouth sealed and
breathing air fed him by tubes in his
nostrils, is alleged.
That students working their way
through college and anxious to earn a
little money are placed in tubs filled
with ice water and floating ice to
study the action of extreme cold upon
the body is charged.
Students are fed strange diets to
see what the stomach will stand and
what it will refuse, it is said, and vi
visection of dogs in a most repulsive
form is practiced.
The purpose of the laboratory Is to
secure data that will be of value to
humanity, and particularly the scien
tific importance of food and the lack
of it
Tuft’s story, in part, is as follows:
“A large part of the time Professor
Levanzin remained in the calorimeter
room. This room is a perfectly air
tight chamber. He was laid down on
a couch. His mouth was sealed. Into
his nostrils were inserted rubber tubes
connecting with a series of jars and a
motor, completing the circuit. These

Annapolis, Md.—The old sailing
frigate Santee is reported to be past
saving, badly aleak and sunk in the
mud here. If it is found that she
must be broken up where she lies,
there will hardly be another vigorous
protest like that by Oliver Wendell
Holmes, which saved the Constitution.
The conditions are In no way alike,
and yet it Is probable that on no other
ship have so large a proportion of
the officers of the navy served as on
the old Santee, which was long in
commission as a disciplinary adjunct
to the naval academy, as well as for
practice in sallormanshlp and smooth
Lore gunnery.
She belonged to the Civil war period
and is said to have been a beautiful
ship of her type, her motive power
being wind and sails. But her long
record as a place for discipline of the
middies who failed in strict observ
ance of the countless regulations at
Annapolis was not of a kind to appear
strongly to the affectionate remem
brance of the graduates of the acad
emy or to arouse the enthusiasm of
the civilian.
The Santee will pass with brief
newspaper notices only, and with it
the English languages, as spoken at
Annapolis, will probably lose a word.
The Santees will be remembered as
one of the Confederate tribes of the
Sioux, and there will continue to be

presumably no untidy, careless or re
fractory "middy” will ever again be

When a Few Hours Old It Phophe
cles End of World In Novem
ber, Then Dies.
Thomasville. Ga.—According to re
ports received here the negroes
around Pelham, over it Mitchell coun
ty, are much stirred up over an infant
phenomenon which. It is said, spoke
when only a few hours old. and
among other things predicted the end
of the world.
Several negroes here have received
letters from friends in Pelham telling
of this child, which, they affirm, turn
ed and spoke to its mother when it
had ben born only eight hours. The
child, so the story goes, told its moth
er that it would die In two hours and
she would die in four hours and the
world would come to an end tn six
months. Mother and child are both
said to have departed this life on
schedule time, and now the colored
population have no doubt whatever
that the remainder of the prophecy
will be fulfilled.
Another portion of the prophecy
which the child is alleged to have ut
tered and which showed that it pos
sessed a voice of wisdom was that it
would rain “off and on" until the end
of the world. As the showers in this
section have undoubtedly been of that
character of late and are liable to
continue so, there is no difficulty in
rectifying the truth of the utterance,
which is of course held up as a con
firmation of the whole matter.
