country ho waa appointed captain of
tho port of Philadelphia.
Captain Hushes' widow camo from tho
samo seafaring people as the tlllbuster.
Sho has two brothora living'. Captain
Thomas A. Parkhlll, a retired shipmaster
of Belfast, and James Parkhlll, of Phila
delphia. Sho was with her husband on several
of his llllbustcrlng expeditions. On ono
occasion, when the United States author
ities wew suspicious of Captain Hushes,
sho accompanied him when ho loft Phila
delphia with a cargo of arms and am
munition. The port officials, although
they had been ordered to watch him,
let him pass out tho Breakwater when
they saw his wife on deck. Sho was sent
back when tho Bahamas were reached.
General Nunez Is aware of tho serv
ices which Mrs. Hughes herself rendered

consul here Is dally expecting a favora

destitute because Captain Hughes was
a generous and Improvident sailor.
When Captain Hughes died on July
II, last, ho left behind him only unpaid
bills. Ho had made several fortunes dur
ing his llllbustcrlng days. His widow has
been an Invalid for Mveral years. Sho
went to Thornmount, Green Island. Bel

Hughes' mother. Tho mother of tho fili

Mrs, Hughes has icmuincd thero at Bel

Government probably will grant her a
pension. Friends recently learned that
the captain left nothing for his widow.
George P. Sproule, secretary of ilia
Board of Commissioners of Navigation,
an intlmato friend of Captain Hughes for
so yens, suggested tho Idea of a Cuban
pension to J. J. Luis. Cuban Consul here,

WASHINGTON. Sept. ;2.-Writlng from
Nassau lu the Bahamas, Consul W. H.
Doty tells how some of the almost Innu
merable vnrletles of shells in the islands
and tho waters surrounding them aro put
to commercial use. He says:
"More than GO varieties of the shells
obtainable In tho Bahamas In quantities
sufllclent for commercial use aro of eco
nomic value, ns evidenced by tho largo
ordois received recently from Europe nnd
tho United States. Among these aro rice
shells, so tiny in size as to make ono
marvel how a sufficient number could be
picked up to fill a barrel; gold shells, mud
shells, cockles, bleeding tooth: pretty dec
orative sun shells; eardrop shells, which
are exported to Odessa, Russia, to bo used
as car pendants; Panama or tent shells,
which resemble miniature encampments
and sell at (SO a barrel; black snails,
which tako a high polish; conches king,
queen. Ivory, pink lip and trochus or
Turk's cap locally termed 'whelks'; these
ro ma a jew or me assortment kept In

sau. "The queen conch, which, Is especially
adapted for cameo carving on account of
having a layer of brown with a white top,
nnd tho pink lip conch, which has layers
of whlto and pink, are much sought for.
Only the lips of these two varieties aro
exported, tho demand coming from New
York and from Torre del Greco, near
Naples, Italy. Ordinary conches sell at I
cent; pink lip, whole shells, from 5 to 23
cents, nnd queens at 30 cents United
States currency f. o. b, Nassau.
"The whelk or Turk's cap. among other
shells, is particularly valuable, as It has
a portion resembling the best mother of
pearl from which pearl studs, for In
Mnnce, could bo made. It Is estimated
tmti.MO.00D shells of 41,1s variety could be
obtained annually In this colony. Thf3

"It appears that n Now York pearl
button machine manufacturing company
Is planning to establish a button blank
cutting riant at Nassau In the near fu

Registration Largest in University's
History Is Looked For,
Registration of students of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania began this morn
ing and will continue until Friday, when
the regular sessions begin. Ottlcials of
the University do not think that the war
will have any effect on the registration,
and look forward to a record enrollment.
No students will ba allowed to register
this year without a doctor's vaccination
certificate. Those who have not been
vaccinated within the last eight years
aro required to be revacclnated. As a
result of thlrt order sore arms and
grouches are In vogue on the campus.
The engineering department will take a
picture of every student entering the de
partment this year. The Idea Is to' keep
a more accurate Identification lystem and
record of the students.
The 20 per cent, duty Imposed upon the
importation of diamonds has placed a
premium upon tho smuggling of such
stones, In tho opinion of diamond ex
perts of this city. George A. Moore, of
J. K. Caldwell & Co., believes that the
Incieaso In diamond smuggling since Juno
1 has been at least "5 per cent., nnd that
bfforo the end of the year It will havo
cached BO per cent.
A great number of nrresta have been
made In this country recently, and they
show that the Inventive genius of smug
glers, has been stimulated by the great
opportunities for largo profits that aro
offered under tho tnrlff, a point which
Is well illustrated In ono of tho recent
arrests, where the smuggler had con
cealed an extremely valuable consignment
of diamonds by Imbedding them In the
plaster molding of a large picture frame.
K. J. Bcrlet, of Maxwell & Berlet, was
s-n-ere In his criticism of tho tariff, point
ing out that the Government's Income
under a 10 per cent, tnrlff was $1,000,000
annually, whllo under the 25 per cent,
tnilff Imposed on these stones a number
of y-ars ago this income dropped to W0O,
000. a fact which ho attributes to the
largo lnereaso In smuggling and for the
reason that Individuals purchased their
precious stones abroad, rather than "In
That the Incron'ed cost of diamonds
would decrease their sale to nny marked
extent or thnt the war would lead to
any scarcity of the stones wero Ideas
scouted by both experts, who say that
the demand Is steady nnd that there Is
n sufficient supply In this country to
last for two or three years. Neither
of them believes that the war will lead
to the opening of an extensive diamond
cutting Industry In America. They say
tho cost of labor Is too high to permit
competition with the foreign cutters. If
tho scene of thnt Industry is to be
changed they believe that London will
be tho city to rocelvo It, although they
doubt that tho war will cause the per
manent cessation of the trade In Bel
glum, where somo 15,010 cutters are eni-
Tho use of reconstructed and Bynthetlc
stones ns substitutes for such precious
stones as rubies and emeralds Is thought
to be probable by several experts, who

London Times Advocates Purple
Band Instead of Conventional Black.
LONDON. Sept. 22.
Thero Is n strong movement on foot to
dipenso with the orthodox form of
mourning lu the vcnt of casualties oc
curring In tho British navy and army,
says the Times. A number of sugges
tions have been put forwaid designed to
effect economies, although at the samo
time In no way minimizing the rcsnect for
tho gallant dead. Recently we published
a leiier on mis topic rrom sirs. Kiiwird
Lyttleton, which, In view of tho Interest
It has aroused, we reprint In full:
"If the country should decide to dls.
pense with such mourning, the economic
effect will be to save a disturbance of
cash expenditure. Mourning will still be
bought for those who die natural deaths;
but we should have a large additional ami
artificial expenditure, temporarily In
flated by tho heavy death roll of the
next few weeks, and the money so saved
will be uvailablo for the support of or
dinary trade. This Independent of the
weightier reasons for changing our usual
"What I am ndvocatlng is something
that would be an appeal to all hearts for
sympathy In bereavement, and It would
mean practically no expenditure, for tho
simple narrow band of purple cloth to be
worn on me leit arm ny every man,
woman or child who had lost a relation
In the war would cost practically nothing
and the badge would be tho same for all
classes "
In a few days we shall bo receiving the
news of great loss of life, on tho Continent
and at sea. One's first thought is a strong
conviction that for lives lost In such a
noble cause the wearing of conventional
mourning would be unsuitable.

LONDON, Sept. 22.
That there Is an Intention on tho part
of the German military exports to en

mistake made when the Germans with
drew from that city, and' that they are
willing to go to any length to retake It.
In describing tho conditions In Rhelms,
tho Daily Telegraph correspondent says
that there Is hardly a house in the neigh
borhood of the cathedral that escaped
damage. Continuing, ho says:
Tho masonry of the cathedral Is
chipped and many of the carved fig

Fowls Make Journey Safely
From Extreme Southwest
ern Part of Virginia to a
Point in Eastern Section of
RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 22. A queer
assortment of articles havo passed
through the Richmond postofflco by way
of the parcel post, but tho most curious
shipment yet received arrived a few
days ago In the shape of a peculiarly
constructed papier-mache coop contain
ing 50 newly hatched chickens.
This unusual consignment through
Undo Sam attracted much attention, and
a few favored visitors at the Federal
building were allowed the prlvllcgo of
seeing the "biddies."
While It Is strictly against tho parcel
post rules to accept live fowls for ship
ment, this coop, about 18 inches squarp
and divided Into two compartments, with
sufficient openings to allow light nnd
air, was allowed admittance to the malls
at a postoffice In Russell County. Its
destination was a point In Lancaster
County, a Journey from the extreme
Southwestern portion of the State to tho
extreme Eastern.
The chicks passed through the Rich
mond office while being transferred from
one train to another. Despite their long
trio the half hundred chirping, fuzzy
creatures were In good condition, and,
barring any mishap, should reach their
destination in ns good shaps as when they
were mailed.
Being a violation of the postal laws,
the shipment would ordinarily have been
returned to tho sender, but when It
reached the hands of Postmaster Thorn
ton's subordinates, and the error of ac
cepting it discovered, it was decided to
nllow It to continue to the end of Its
Journey, for fear the chickens would die
If returned to Russell Countv.
However, Assistant PoBtmaster W,
Ross Southward said the department at
Washington will b notified, and, no
doubt, tho notion of the postmaster in
Russell lu ncceptlng tho coop as mail
matter will bo the subject of Inquiry.
