preparation of the Chinese exhibit had been
rushed with all speed to completion. He
added that he wished to express the ap
preciation of these facts, not only by th
exposition officials and the people who
would visit the pavilion, but, If he might
so presume, by th president of the United
General Franklin Ferris, general counsel
for the exposition, was then called upon

ROYALTY NEEDS THE MONEY
Soft Snaps Enjoyed by Nearly 12, OOO
Living; Persons with Rights to
It will be news to many people that
there are almost 12,000 living persons who
have British royal blood in their veins.
There are, and the Marquis de Ruvlgny,
who finds his recreation In genealogical
research, proves it in a thick volume Just
Issued In England.
The marquis gives the names of 11,723
living persons who are legitimate descend
ants of Edward IV, Henry VII of England
and James III of Scotland, with pedigrees
to show how they obtain that distinction.
The list Includes the names of every
Christian crowned head In the world, ex
cept the kings of Sweden and Servla and
th princes of Monaco and Montenegro,
and most of the higher nobility of Eu
It also Includes scores of cc nmoncrs
humble Smiths, Browns and Jonses In the
most modest circumstances, whom nobody
would think of associating with a royal
pedigree. The marquis numbers them in
the order of their nearness to the head
of the family and if descent really counted
In the matter to the British -throne.
It doesn't, for the act of settlement of
1701 barred the Catholic aons of Elizabeth,
queen of Bohemia, sister of Charles II ,
from the succession and settled it on the
children of her Protestant daughter, the
eiectresa of Hanover, beginning with
George I. All the same, tliougn, tne mar
quis, taking the -view of the ardent legiti
mist, labels, as No. 1 of the blood royal
Mary Theresa Henrietta Dorothea, Prin
cess Louise of -Bavaria, whom he describes
as "heiress of the house of Stuart and by
hereditary right queen of England, Scot
land, France and Ireland."
Of course, in the family pedigree she
comes before Edward VII., the actual
king. In the marquis's book. So do Don
Carlos of Spain, dozens of European prince
lings and hundreds of commoners. But
If among the lineal descendants of these
three king were counted those whose
that unlucky act of settlement bars 'em
pedigrees are crossed with the bar tlninter,
no book would hold them all. The mar
quis counts only the legitimate lines. New

WHY POPCORN POPS AND POPS
Important laformatloa ttot from
tha Popper of Vnele
Much of the progress Americans hnve
made along political, commercial and social
lines la due to the Interest which the In
dividual cltlst-n takes In probing every
question that urines In his experience.
It Is not enough to tell the average free
born American that a thing Is so. It Is ant
enough for him to know that It is so. He
will not be content until he discovers, either
by asking his friends, writing to the news
papers or communicating with the national
government, why It la so.
Take an example. We all know what
popcorn Is. We have seen It In the ear.
We have seen It when shelled. We have
eaten It from the saucer or In the ball,
salted or swentened. Most of us have In
dulged in popcorn at the circus. Many of
us have gathered with loved ones around
the family hearth and watched tt ns It
popped. But how many of ua have learned
why it pops? How many of ua have care!
to discover what may be called the prlrcl
ple of th popcorn pop? Very few. Why?
Because moet of us have been Interested
In the solution of other and equally impor
The time was certain to come, however,
when this snd all'ed question would be
raised. And the time has come, as a mat
ter of fact, for a correspondent has put
the following questions to the Department
of Agi (cultures
1. Why does popcorn pop?
f. Why doesn't ordinary corn pop like pop
corn? . .
3. What Is tr. composition of popcorn and
whv doc It ('Tor from ordinary corn?
4. 'Wh'- nopcorn pop better when
thoroughly dryt H
It Is one i'l tl.e glories of our republican
form of government that It employs men In
every deportment who are specially quali
fied to answer any questions that may be
addressed to it One would suppose at first
glance that these questions would embar
rass the information bureau of the Agri
cultural department. Not at all. Scarcely
had they been received before the popcorn
expert had set to work, and. In less time
than it takes to tell, the following answers
were on the way to the anxious inquirer:
1 The popping of popcorn is due to vola
tilization of the oil contained In the kernel.
2. Field corn does not pop aa readily as
popcorn pops because the outer portion of
the kernel in more porous, permitting the
escape of the oil as It volatilizes, while in
the case of popcorn a great pressure is de
veloped in the kernel by the confined oil
and the kernel is suddenly exploded nnd
turned wrong side out.
3. In ctmprsltlon popcorn differs from or
dlnarv corn In having a larger proportion
of corneous element and a great per cent
4. Popcorn pops more readily when dry be
when moistened the kernela are
swollen, more porous and toughened and do
not explode so suddenly ana completely as
when dr' and hard.
This settles the wholo popcorn question.
It was, after simple. Will somebody
be kind enou, to ask the government

NEW YORK, May 6.-Bradstreefs to
morrow will say:
Long expected good wvather has at last
materialized and has helped farmers nnd
retail trade in seasonable good. Crop
preparations and planting has made espe
clafly good progress, the preaent outlook
being that while the winter wheat crop
will be short, the acreage in spring wheal,
oats and corn will be heavily increased.
Retail and wholesale trade, however, has
not experienced the stimulation eariiei
looked for, there being a disposition so
far to regard results as below expecta
tions. Reorder trade with Job. r Is slow
and fall orders are bnckward. Other condi
tions partake of irregularity. ihe Iron
trade Is uuleter, with prices d stlnctly
weaker. Eastern Jobbers ate Inclined to
take a more favorable view of trade now
that good weather Is stimulating retail de
mand: The improvement as yet, however,
is a matter of tone only, and some Jobbers
regard a portion of the spring trade ns
actually lost. The volume of fall business
Is limited as yet. In dry goods business
