She was twice married and divorced in America. Her son, bearing the name of his reputed granfather, Prince Rudolph of Aus tria, was born in Morristown, N. J. The post-mortem is said to have dis closed a case of poisoning strikingly similar to that pf "Billy" Carlton, who was found dead after, the first Victory ball in London a year ago. Mrs. Steane claimed descent from the Austrian Imperial family. She claimed she was the natural daugh ter of the dead Crown Prince Rudolph, son of Emperor Francis Joseph, and of Marie Vetsera, the baroness whom Prince Rudolph loved but could not marry. The story of their tragic deaths in the hunting lodge at Meyerling in 1889, where both committed suicide be cause their love was thwarted and the prince was tied to a wife whom he could not cherish, is known to the world. In 1911 the Austrian government issued an official pro nouncement stating that no child was born of the infatuation of the crown prince and the baroness. Famous Women Helen of Troy. "The face that launched a thou sand ships and burned the topless towers of Ilium." Thus sang Chri topher Marlowe, the poet (1587) of Helen of Troy. Probably it is the most exalted compliment ever paid to" woman's beauty. ' For this is the history of Helen, and the "gleaming melancholy" of the achievement of her charms. In the oldest chroni cles of Greece she is entered as the daughter of Zeus himself by Loda, whom he wooed (and won) under the guise of a swan. No wonder that Helen was the ivory perfect- ncse! She .became the bride of Menelaus, king of Sparta. At the famous contest for supremacy on Mount Ida among three goddesses, Venus, Minerva and June, Paris son of Priam, king of Troy, being the judge, Venus promised him the fairest woman in the world; Miner va promised wisdom and Juno world dominion. Paris gave the prize to Venus. The woman won. Paris visited Sparta and swept Helen from the arms of Menelaus. He bore her to Troy, and Greece arose as one man to recover just one woman. The tragedy of the Trojan War sung by Homer in the "Iliad" (1000 B. C.) was occasioned by a woman. Yet Marlowe puts on the lips of Helen's royal suitor , the words, "Sweet Helen, make me immortal by a kiss!" The Mermaid. She was a "famous woman," be cause she was a "famous ' inn that served men. That was enough for the Mermaid. She was named after an enchanting lady of the vasty deep, who is a woman to her girdle, and a fish to her feet Her figure was on the signboard of the famous inn, in Friday street Lon don. Pass with hasty glance the bar in front the parlor behind the blackened roof and nnlisriert taHUa tap-room on the left low doorways, winding passages and you come to the inn parlor. This is the Mermaid! And the men si'ttinc tVr? R Jonson, Fletcher, Beaumont, Carew, uonne, and Shakespeare. Shake speare is roaring over his dog's nose, and Ben Johnson over his canary. Oh, listen to the wit com bats between Shakespeare and Ben Jonson. Mermaid, dear "famous woman," why were you net a twin?" Noah's Wife. There must be some foundation for the perpetually recurring story in the mediaeval mystery plays of Noah's wife. Noah's name means "rest." Noah's wife's makeup was restless. Her name was Naamah. Naamah was a daughter of Enoch, "who walked with God," says Holy Writ; but Naamah walked about with her temper and nearly upset the ark itself with the "kick" she made at its uprearing. She fought Noah with doughty fists all the way through and when the great man had completed his work she said she would not go in with the ani mals The animals behaved better and went timidly into the ark. At last Naamah consented to carry in the lyre bird. When they were afloat Naamah declared she was as blue as the sea. The lions became outraged at this carrying on and at tacked Noah to attack Naamah. Pretty woman with the melodious name, you have come all the way down history from 2448 B. C. to November 19, 1919, A. D., as the peacock of temper. When a man builds his house (ark) his trouble begins How Christmas Carol Revived in Detroit In November, 1916, a small com mittee of the musical people got to gether and mapped out a plan which comprised the formation of a Christ mas carol organization with officers, including one representative of each of the denominations of the city, in order to make the organization strictly nonsectarian. A meeting was held and officers elected, and then a campaign by mail was used to acquaint all the minis ters and Sunday school superin tendents in the city with the aims and object of the new organization, and to solicit their active co-operation. It was rather late not more than four or five weeks before Christmas but a start was made. Twenty five groups, with about 250 carolers, sang in a few neighborhoods. They raised about $287 to help neglected and destitute children of the city. This was considered very good for a start, but the echo of the sing ing had hardly died away when plans were laid to extend greatly in 1917 this picturesque and ancient custom. The newspapers gave liberal space and helped the cause wonderfully On the following Christmas Eve, 4,000 people, including many adult groups sang carols in all of Detroit's residential districts and collected over $3,000 for the city's needy chil dren. By 1918 the number of carol ers had increased to 10,000, turning Detroits twilight streets into "200 miles of song," making truly an in spiring and beautiful sight. Though the revival of Christmas Carol singing is comparatively re cent in this country it has already reached many cities, including both large centers of population and smaller towns, and has everywhere aroused great enthusiasm. Caroling groups have been organized in the following cities, among others, and in nearly all cases provision made for repeating the event annually: New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Scranton. Jersey City, Denver, Syracuse, Nash ville, Lowell, Evansville, Boston, Flint, Bangor, Nyack, Newburyport. Facts About Potatoes. When potatoes become old in April and up to June it is wise to pare them early in the morning and let them soak in water for sev eral hours in order to restore the moisture they have lost. The same treatment will help those that are frostbitten. The new potatoes that we get in July and August are not ripe and are undigestible as any green fruit would be so never give them to children or invalids. Still the Same Cry.
