"A NATIONAL DELUSION."
That American Woman Has No Super
ior Is Absurd.
Ihe Idea that the position of Ameri
can women U superior to that of any
other women in the world Is character
Ized by Mary lleaton Vorsu, In "Ap
plutun's," as u "national delusion."
She admits that they are undoubtedly
the "uiont Indulged and petd women
In the world," but as for real respect
she thinks that the downtrodden Uer
man hautfrau (sets more. "The Ger
man husband may seem to us unchlv
alro-js in the minor details of Hie. He
may talk with brutal disparagement
about the female brain, but when be
goes out to amuse himself It doesn't
occur ..o htm to go alone. 11 takes
with him his wife and his children
That patnetic person whose hjsbuud
neglects her foi the society of iu-n.
for whom our tears How so often lu
this country, is not found lu Ger
many." The varon aligned Is that by her
skilful household management the
liausfrau has become a source ui
wealth to the country. The part winch
women play in the national Hie is
waat makes them pre-eminent o. re
latively unimportant, says the article
"The amount of Binall courtasy huowu
them really doesn't make much dif
ference. Show uie a country where Us
women add to the country's weuiin oy
participating in the business ul ti.ai
country or by tuelr thrift and 1 w.n
show you a country where the econo
mic position of women la a higher
one." In France, where the woiuuu
is her husband's conrade ana business
partner, she das the most power.
"As a c-mtrast tc this, the American
man stands alone. The women loilt
of his Minily do not help him. As lui
as his business goes, It's quite iiuuia
terial o him whether be las a wile or
whether he has not. Our men may
talk as much as they like about the
uplifting influence o- a noble woman
and of the tangible support that the
thought of her nobility give them. It
does not alter the fact tha the aver
age American man transacts all the
business of bis life wi'ho.U ever
ureaming of turning to bis lire's part
ner for any counsel In tht matter
and generally without her even having
any knowledge of the business In
There is comradeship between
young girls and men, Mrs. Vorse finds,
but it ceases Just at the time wh"n
the latter begin the real business of
life. For this state ot affairs she
thinks the women are to blame.
"When a manr.flrst marries It Is bis
Instinct to take his wife into partner
ship with him. It's natural for a man
to want to talk about that which
takes up most oi the hours he Is
awake tj the perso i he cares for most
In the world." But the wife checks
these advances accoiding to her na
ture and disposition. "ElMer she will
slip her arm through John's and say
coaxingly: 'Don't let's talk about hor
rid busintss, Jear; let's talk about
something nice. You ought to rest
when you get hume.' Or leso agree-
ablo and more honest, she may admit
rankly that business bores her."
So the man actually comes to think
that he ought to leave bis business
cares at the office. Me ilts "bored
and silent in his own home," while bis
wife complains that he is "so absorbed
In business that he has no Interast
left for anything else.'
"I do ot for a moment mean," the
article concludes, "to bring the influ
ence cl woman iu uer household down
to a matter of dollprs and cents, but l
is not prcbable that the spiritual bond
between man ant. womaL was ever
less because they were helpful part

Mr. McMillan, I t Whose Jungles Mr.
Roosevelt Will Shoot Big Game,
Hat Everything In Readiness for
His Distinguished Guest.
London. Wliliar Northrup McMil
lan, nephew of the late Senator Mc
Millan, of Michigan, and his wife
have sailed from Marseilles for IndU
to viBit the Maharajah of Cooch Be
har at bis earnest Invitation. Messrs.
Bullpet and Shaw and six other Amer
icanos, all frietiu of the McMillans,
are in the party. Their fellow-passengers
were the Princess Koyal and
the Duke of Fife and their two daugh
ters; Sir Henry aim Lady Tichborne,
and Lady Lansdowne and her brother,
Lord Frederick Hamilton. The Tich
bornes are great travellers and Inti
mate friends of the McMillans.
After the visit Mr. McMillan will
hasten to South Africa. He has in
vited President Roosevelt to bunt big
game on his vast estate near Nairobi,
and as host be wants to be certain
that everything Is ready to receive
Mr. Roosevelt end his son. Mr. Mc
Millan, himself a mighty hunter, will
nos shoot with his guests, will not
join them or even receive them.
Certainly the Roosevelts will suffer
no handicap while they remain on
the estate, whicl. is to be given over
to them. It is called the Juja Farm
because it lies between the Ju River
and the Ja Rivjr. The chief bungalow
is the most comfortable residence
imaginable, with two stories and a
veranda. It wp.s made in America at
the order of Mr. McMillan, who for
merly lived ki St. Louis, transported
lu sections and Ret up under his eye.
It is well furnished with American

to provide hue sport for is guests.
In effect the game has been pre
served; the shooting has not been dis
turbed for ten -nonths.
There ere six Hons', dens on the Mc
Millan tract The lions have not been
fattened by feeding them, but they
have been left to live tranquilly, so
that they may be there In good condi
tion for the Roosevelts to shoot.
The McMillans are very wealthy.
Their Devonshire seat, Tout Saint, at
Buckland, Kingdbridge, is superb. The
place was originally a convent, and
is a walled estate, with quaint gar
dens, orchards, meadows and pasture
lands. The Interior of the house Is
palatial. It was furnished by French
artists, the walls and ceilings being
panelled and moulded by the best
workers Paris cculd supply.
Their London residence, No. 17
Hill street, Is even finer. A museum
occupies the centre ot the house and
the trophies of the chase it contains
would delight Mr. Roosevelt.

room for the museum. The first thing

FACTS C0NCERNIK8 BLOOD.
It la the Most Genetic Thing A boat
' A drop of the blood of a walrus
shows no relation with a drop of
whale's blood, or of the blood of any
' other cetacean, such as seals or por-
poises, which, like the walrus, are
mammals that have taken to the
sea. Instead of that, the blood or
the walrus Immediately reacts with
the blood of horses, asses and zebras,
thus proving that he Is an equine
that no longer crops grass but goes
where he can live on an exclusively
fish diet. Likewise the hippopota
mus Is shown to be a modified pig.
Where a blood relationship exists,
but Is distant, these reactions are
proportionately faint, but where no
reactions occur there Is no relation
ship at all. Thus, geology Indicates
that birds are descended from rep
tiles, and, oddly enough, the blood
of a bird shows a distinct, though
very faint reaction with the blood of
a snake but none whatever with that
of the winged bat or the flying squir
rel, for these are mammals.
On the other hand, the marsupials,
once such a great family, but now re
duced to the kangaroo, the opossum
and a small creature In South Ameri
ca, have now not a single blood re
lation left. As to man, he has no
relationship to monkeys, but the
blood of anthropoid apes shows a
very faint reaction with his. Mean
time, all the races of man are unmis
takably of one blood, whatever their
color or nbodo.
Hence the blood Is by far the most
hereditary thing about us. Neither
the shape of the skeleton, nor the
contour of the body, nor brain, heart,
lungs, stomach, Intestines, liver or
skin, nor even ancestral habits about
the grcnt Food Question Darwin's
only Creator how to eat or keep
from being eaten are comparable to
a single drop of blood for telling
the correct story.of descent. All this
gives a new meaning to the words,
"For the blood thereof Is the life
thereof." Likewise, the old saying
that Insanity runs In the blood now
wears a scientific look, since blood
and family are so Inseparably asso
ciated. Average Ages of Itlrds-
