Major Edward Pendleton Said
toHave Introduced Dapper
Young Man to Rich Widow.
Tho suit of Major Edward Pendleton,
in Iho Camden Court, to selie property
now held by tho wife of Charles P. Con
nor, In payment of $35,000, out of which
he aaya he was swindled by Gondorf, now
In Jail, has revived Interest here In the
marriage of the dapper Jean II. C. St.
Cyr to the widow ,of James Henry,
"Silent" Smith. Major Penduleton Is the
man credited with navmg neen me
matchmaker between the pair.
Oondorf'n wife, Mrs. Mary E. Gondorf,
was called to the witness stand In the
Chancery Court at Camden In the trial of
the suit today. She said her husband was
secretive about his affairs and (he did not
know much about them. Mrs. Gondorf
Identified a photograph of Dora Collins,
a friend of hers, who Is said to hold title
to a property formerly owned by Gon
dorf. This Is one of tho properties of
which Colonel Pendleton seeks control.
Saint Cyr and his bride, whoso daugh
ter Is older than the husband, nre at
tho Marlborough-Ulenhelm, Atlantic City.
They have not left their apartment since
arriving- at the resort. Gifts, messages
and cards sent up to their room have
been refused. Also stopping at tho Marl-borough-Blenhelm
Is Ilobert von Swemm,
for years the constant companion of
Saint Cyr. Ho traveled with tho pair
from White Sulphur Springs.
Paint Oyr, who Is exceedingly dainty,
being fond of pink and blue and always
fastidiously dressed, Is almost the
physical and mental antithesis of the
late "Silent" Smith. The latter was a
big, powerful man, whoso sobriquet was
eminently fitting. Somehow ho was
"discovered" by some social leader, and
thereafter society almost fought for him.
lie wag lionized everywhere.
Saint Cyr appeared some years ago
with Von Swemm. Ho was born In
France, but of his history prior to his
first appearance socially nothing has been
learned by the curious. ..i the social
colonies of Palm Beach and White Sul
phur Springs, where tho widow of
"Silent" Smith was an acknowledged
leader, ho was openly regarded In tho In
ner circles as "that nobody from no
where." Somo years ngo Saint Cyr met Mrs.
Henry Itedfleld, of Hartford. Von
Swemm even then" was his boon compan
ion. Tho two became socially known
through visiting all the resorts In tho
East of any consequence from a social
Viewpoint. They danced almost exclusive
ly with Mrs. Redflcld, and then she mar
ried Saint Cyr. Sho was more than 40
years his senior.
When the first Mrs. Saint Cyr died sho
left Jean, her young husband, $280,000.
Most of this is said to have been lavished
by the French fashion plate on the widow
of Silent Smith during tho last season nt
Palm Beach, and gossip there was that
he had a purpose. Nevertheless, tho calm
announcement of the bride that she had
Just married Saint Cyr took society's
breath away.
This announcement was made to Mrs.
William K. Vandcrbllt, Miss Anna Sands,
Mrs. I. Townsend Burden, Mrs. Albert
Gallatin, Mrs. Goodhue Livingston and
many others at White Sulphur Springs.
Most of them thought it was a Joke until
Saint Cyr lifted the hand of his wife
and kissed It
Saint Cyr is said to bo 7 years old by
those who know him. His wjfo Is the
mother of Princess Miguel de Braganza,
wife of the pretender to the throne of
Portugal. The Princess is said to be
older than Saint Cyr.
The latter has a happy faculty of be
ing around when photographera for the
big news services tako pictures of society
life at Palm Beach. One of his favorite
pictures shows him with Major Pendleton.
Saint Cyr Is shown In white stripod trous
ers and a blue coat. He has a wolfhound
In leash. '

65 PLEASURE TO SINK A rtf ' fCr-J tt nrf nr
Want Admiral Dewey, Major
General Wood and Theodore
Roosevelt Among Guests.
Promise of practlcnl co-operation In tho
plans to make the proposed national cele
bration of tho Fourth of July In Phila
delphia n success was given today by the
Army and Navy Union. In the member
ship of the organization, which Is na
tional In scope, are Admiral Dowcy,
Major General Leonard Wood, Theodoro
Itoosevelt, Slajor General Barnett, com
mander United States Marine Corps, and
other distinguished men.
At a meeting of tho staff of tho De
partment of Pennsylvania last night at
Its headquarters, 10 South ISth street, It
was decided to ask Councils' Fourth of
July Committee to includo nmong Its
guests tho thrco men mentioned. It was
pointed out by Captain E. P. EWnlap, do
nartment adjutant, that the army and
navy would bo represented by Admiral
Dewey and Mnjor General Wood, while
tho presence of Colonel Roosevelt, who
distinguished himself In the Spanish
American war, would be ln keeping with
the spirit of the occasion. The Eve.t
ino LEDQEn's advocacy of a permanent
national Independence Day celebration
met tho approval of Captain Dunlap and
other members of tho organization, who
said that the Army and Navy Union
would be glad to participate ln tho pa
rade preceding the ceremonies at Inde
pendence Square.
Tho plan to have an immense chorus of
school children and singing organizations
In Independence Square as suggested by
Thomas Martlndalo is approved by many
of the city's leading educators.
Henry It. Edmunds, president of the
Board of Education, said: "I am ln favor
of any event which will give the school
chlidron an opportunity to participate in
patriotic exercises. I think they should
be brought together not only on tbo na
tional Fourth of July celebration in this
city, but on all national holidays. It
serves to arouse their patriotism and keep
them In touch with the origin and prog
ress of their country. While the matter
has not been brought to the attention of
the Board of Education as yet, I believe
that It will co-operate ln every way to
make tho event a success."

Hunter of Big Gnme Will Penetrate
Wild Yukon Country.
Thomas Martlndale, Philadelphia's best
known hunter of big game, will leave for
Alaska In search of bear Friday after
noon. He expects to reach Seattle about
May 5, and will leave by boat for the
southern coast of Alaska. Although the
Alaskan game law limits hunters to three
bears a season, Mr. Martlndale carries a
special permit from Secretary Houston, of
the Department of Agriculture, author
izing him to bring back two brown bears
for the- Academy of Natural Sciences, In
this city, In addition to the three allowed
by the game laws.
The well-known sportsman has hunted
big game In the Yukon country on other
occasions, but this time ho will push out
from Cook's Inlet, on the southern coast,
Into territory Inhabited only by hears and
wild goats. On the sides of two of these
mountains. Mount Redoubt and Mount
Illamund, he expects to And bear. He
will spend at least 20 days there.

Machinist, Falling Into Vat of Boil
ing Water, Saved Though Scalded.
Presence of mind and a pair of strong
arms probably saved the life of Simon
Brown, 83 years old, 2327 West Firth
street, a foreman machinist, today, when
he fell Into a vat of boiling water at the
plant of the Philadelphia Steel Forglns
Company, at Taoony.
Brown, walking beside the vat, turned
and stepped backward into it. As he fell
he grasped the edge of the tub and pulled
himself out, despite the excruciating
pain. His legs were badly scalded. The
Tacony patrol wagon took him to the
Fiankford Hospital, where It Is said he
will recover.

The Spring Greens and Some Suggestions for
Preparing Them.
Tho new green vegetables, now so plen
tiful by a happy stroke of nature, con
tain net only many nutritive properties,
but nlso tho medicinal ones needed at
this time of tho year.
rortunately. too, wo aro realizing moro
and moro every day the superior advan
tngo of getting our medicine from tho
markets rather than from tho doctors,
for nature, after all, dispenses tho best
physic, and certainly that most pleasant
to take.
Who docs not remember the horriblo
dose of sulphur and molasses, or cream
of tartar and molasses that our grand
mothers swore by (If those gcntlo ladles
ever swore) when spring came around?
Nowndnys, however, tho careful mother
nnd housewife knows her dlototics too
well to have to administer tho tlme-hon-oied
doso to a protesting family. Instead
she buys spinach, asparagus, rhubarb,
spring onloii3 and new beans, tho food
values of which seem designed especially
to take owny that tired, droopy feeling.
Sho prepares them tastily and the un
suspecting family takes the dose with a
Not only the succulent cultivated vege
tables, but many wild weeds unfamiliar
to the majority of housekeepers aro to
bo had at this time. In the spring cate
gory of those particularly rich In mineral
properties and of high medicinal value
aro dandelion, both wild nnd cultivated;
rhubarb, poko shoots, asparagus, lettuce,
water cress, scullions, beet tops, kale,
spinach, Swiss chard, sourdock, sorrel,
lambs' quarters, purslane and horse
radish. Green vegetables, such as asparagus
and spinach, lend themselves easily to
combinations of milk In tho cream soups.
These soups are nitrogenous, easy of
digestion and, with whole wheat bread
and butter, form an admirable luncheon
or supper dish for children. Even a
tablespoonful of greens left over will
make a delicious cream soup.
Care should be taken In cooking greens.
These vegetables part with their salts
easily and unless well cooked aro un
sightly nnd unpalatable. The nddition of
common suit In no way replaces the
mineral mntter soaked and boiled from
those- vegetables. In washing and pre
paring greens for cooking It Is well to
remember that If they are thrown into
salted water after washing It will thor
oughly rid them of any Insect life which
might adhere and otherwise go unno
ticed. Asp-iragus and all delicately flavored
vecclablrs should bo cooked In very little
water Just enough to cover, but dan
delion nnd strong flavored vegetables
should bo cooked In a generous qunntity.
All greens should be cooked with the
cocr partially off. This gives them a
better color and a more delicious flavor.
Tho average housekeeper Is careless na
to tho tinv of cooking vegetables, yet n
vegctablo is as much Injured by too much
or too little cooking as is a loaf of bread
or n cake. The water should be kept
boiling constantly until vegetables are
dene. To let It stop Impairs the flavor.
In cooking greens, a hambone or
bacon drippings which have been saved
from time to time will be found to sup
ply a flavor that cannot be obtained
In any other way.
Onions used discreetly are a tast
addition to any green used In salad
form. When shredded and mixed with
mayonnaise they make a palatable dress
ing nnd aro very wholesome.
Lettuce, since It contnins alkalies, re
quires an ncld condiment.
The valuo of dandelion as a high
grade salad Is rapidly being recognized.
Use only the young, tender, bleached
root leaves, and serve with mayonnaise.
Tho older and green portions are best
prepared Just as spinach Is.
Dandelions form ono of tho most
wholesome greens, contalnl-B as they
do "Taraxacum," whljh acts on the
liver. Dandelion roots are cut into
slices, dried nnd used medicinally. In
some parts of the West they are nlso
toasted and used na coffee substitute.
Mixed with roasted wheat and barley
they form what Is known as "poor
man's coffee."
From the blossoms delicious wine Is
made, so that the entire plant Is utilized.
Select the young, green or bleaohed,
white parts of dandelion leaves; wash,
throw them Into water, drain, dry and
serve with French dressing or mayon
naise. When combined with tomato and
hard boiled egg, saturated with mayon
naise, it is delicious. Lay slice of tomato
on bed of tender dandelions and plenty
of tiny blossom buds, over whloh minced
hard boiled egg has been generously scat
tered, or have hard boiled egg siloed into
rlngletB and laid on greens. Saturate all
with mayonnaise.
Take about Ave or six strips of sliced
bacon or bits of the fat end of ham and
cut Into small pieces; put Into hot frying
pan and fry until light brown, then pour
In cup water. Into this put well
beaten egg mixed with a little water and
three tablespoonfuls of vinegar, a gener
ous pinch of salt and two tablespoonfuls
of sugar. Stir and let It come to a boll,
but care must be taken not to boll too
much or It will curdle. Place dandelions
In dressing in pan and stir constantly
until thoroughly scalded. Do not let it
stand. Serve at once in dish and garnish
with sliced hard boiled eggs.
Place several bacon strips in a pan and
fry until nicely browned; remove to let
t crisp and allow bacon fat to cool. Ar
range dandelions in salad bowl, put over
it. the slices of bacon. Add to bacon fat
two tablespoonfuls vinegar, a good pinch
of salt, pepper and one tablespoonful of
chopped onion or chives; mix and pour
over aanaeuons ana serve at once.
When thoroughly cleaned boll dande
lion in plenty of salted water until ten
der, drain dandelion and press until very
dry. Chop moderately fine ln bowl. Take
a large bunch of garden sorrel, wash,
drain thoroughly and chop quite fine.
There should be one-third as much
chopped jaorrel as dandelion. Into a deep
saucepan put one heaping tablespoonful
of butter for each cupful of sorrel. When
quite hot add the sorrel and stir over
a. moderate Are until it has tumtd
brown. Now add dandelions, gtir until
boiling hot, remove from tho fire, add ono
beaten egg for each pint of greens and
serve. Tho egg may be omitted without
spoiling tho dish. Moro or lees sorrol
may be used, to taste. No vlnegnr Is
used with tho greens this way. Tho wild
sorrel Is as good as tho cultivated.
Boiled In the same mannor as spinach
and served In toasted bread cases, with
drawn butter sauco or cream Bauce, gar
nished with prated hard-boiled egg, It is
This is u dainty and wholcsomo lunch
eon dish mado by using, chopped, the
tender, bleached part of dandelion and
combining It with hnrd-bollcd eggs and
mayonnaise between thinly sliced pieces
of buttered bread.
Toast thinly sliced pieces of bread
which aro nicely buttered and placed on
ono slice of which Is n genorous quantity
of chopped, tender dandelion, n thin slice
of cold chicken and ono of ham, or two
nlco thin slices of bacon nnd two slices
of hard-boiled egg; marinate all with
ollvo oil mayonnaise; press together and
cut ln triangular or fancy shapes.
This, by Itself, makes a dainty, nutri
tious luncheon when served with a cup
of tea.
This most delicious and Inexpensive
green may bo aorved In salads much tho
samn as Is dandelion. It makes dainty
sandwiches and as a garnish for spring
use excels any other. It Is antiscorbutic,
palatablo and wholesome. It owes Its
flavor to a volatile oil which bocomes
very pungent as tho plant matures and
blossoms. Mixed with young dandelions
or spring lettuce In salad or sandwiches
It Is much better than when served
Water cress and cucumber salad Is very
Mndo the same as merlnguo filling for
pie. Poured over stale pieces of cake or
lady-fingers and topped with browned
merlnguo or whipped cream, this Is a
delicious dessert.
When baked, make a rich pastry
dough, place two tablespoonfuls of
steucrt rhubarb in each piece of pastry,
having previously thickened tho rhubarb
with cornstarch and sweetened It to
tnste. Press dumplings together; bako
In a quick oven; serve with warm rhu
barb sauco in which has been placed a
lump of butter and top with whipped
When boiled, make light biscuit dough
with baking powder. Place several pieces
of stewed rhubarb In each dumpling and
steam In pieces of muslin 20 minutes
without lifting cover. Remove to In
dividual dish. Serve with rhubarb sauce
around the dumpling In dish and top with
hard sauce.
This green, which should bo used
plentifully, may bo prepared In many
tempting ways both as a warm dish and
as a snlad. Asparagus will continue to
bo cheaper now, since our home supply
Is beginning to come In.
A common error Is to boll nsparagus
too much. Cut off lower parts of stalks
(which may be used for soup), wash, re
move scnles and retlo in a bunch with
strips of white muslin Instead of cord, to
ns not to break the asparagus, placing
tips all one way. Set upright ln boiling
salt wuter. In this way the tops will
cook only In tho steam and the asparagus
will not bo boiled to shreds, as would bo
the case If tho bunch wero laid on, its
Untie when cooked and place on pieces
of toast, dipped quickly in the asparagus
liquor and then buttered. Place In a
platter and have drawn butter, pepper
and salt poured over, or make a cream
sauce of ono tablespoonful of flour and
one of butter, a little salt and pepper and
enough milk and nsparagus liquor to
form proper consistency.
Have hard boiled egg chopped and add
to cream dressing; pour all over aspara
gus on toast. This Is a most delicious
way of serving asparagus.
Hollandalse sauce la also nlco.
Many prefer, when serving asparagus
on toast, to have as a sauce the liquor
thickened with a little flour and seasoned
with butter, salt and pepper.
Remove centres from email rolls, fry
cases in deep lard and drain, fill with
creamed asparagus.
Take tips only and out them into pieces.
Boll until tender, drain, season with but
ter and pepper and serve on toast or in
oases around the edge of the platter, In
the centre of which are placed squabs or
broiled chicken garnished with cress. Use
stalk en da for eoup.
t aua.
Boll four eggs hard and chop fine.
Bub two tablespoonfuls butter and two
of flour together, add one pint of milk;
stir until boiling and add one teaspoonful
of Bait and a dash of pepper, Cut aspara
gus in Inch lengths, put a layer of
asparagus In baking dish, then a layer of
sauce, then a sprinkling of bread crumbs.
Continue In this way with alternate lay
ers until last layer, which is of crumbs.
Bake In a quick ovenUntll golden
brown. This makes an excellent supper
or luncheon dish Instead of meat.
Left-over asparagus may be used with
French dressing as salad,

Destruction of Fly's Breeding
Place Essential to Removal
of Dangerous Pest.
Don't wait until tho fly has attained
full-grown proportions before you be
gin your swatting. Attack him ln his
infancy. Go even further than that. De
stroy his breeding place. All's fair in
love nnd war and where files are con
cerned It's all war.
In a pamphlet losuod especially for the
third annual Clean-up Week that starts
nrxt Monday, Dr. S. Lewis Zleglcr, Direc
tor of the Department of Health, polntn
out some pertinent facts In regard to
tho relation of files to dirt.
"The place to swat the fly Is where hcJ
Iwnnilo nnf ntlinrn lira hielre ' on a Vi n "r
"House files are filthy and dangerous to
human life. Born In filth, reared In
filth, they feed upon filth nnd carry filth
with them, not only causing annoyance,
but marking a trail of disease and death
wherever thoV go."
Although typhoid exacts the biggest
toll, mnny fntnl cases of consumption,
diarrhoea and dysentery nre directly
traceable to tho fly. A single Insect has
been known to carry moro than 350,000
But, according to Doctor Zlcgler, tho fly
cannot develop from tho egg, which must
have undisturbed filth to grow In, ln less
than eight days. This puts the question
up to you squarely, Mr. and Mrs. Phila
delphia; fur If all filth Is cleaned up or
destroyed at least once a week the eggs
will not have tlmo to develop nnd thcro
will bo no flies. What are you going to
do about It?
The thing that you ought to do, In tho
opinion of tho Bureau of Health, Is to
maintain throughout the entire season,
tho samo stand you tako against the fly
In Clean-up Week.
Hero are a few don'ts recommended by
Doctor Ziegler:
DON'T tolerate flies.
DON'T allow them In your house.
DON'T allow them on your premises.
DON'T nllow garbage, rubbish or manure
to accumulate on your lot or near It.
DON'T nllow dirt in your house. Look

furniture, under stairs and beds. He
move the cuspidors. In brief J keep tho
house clean.
DON'T allow fllee near food, especially
DON'T buy foodstuffs whero files are
DON'T buy milk where flies are on tho

Women's Conference Would
Avert War by Voice in Na
tional Policies.
Tlin HAGUE, April 23.
Miss Jnno Addnma, the noted Chicago
woman philanthropist and sociologist,
was today unanimously selected a3 tho
permanent chnlrman of tho Women's
Congress, meeting hero to dovlso wnys
for ending war. Tho election of Mies
Addnms was a trlbuto to tho neutrality
of America nnd reflected tho hope that
somo method would bo dovlsed by the
Tcace Congress to get the women of the
various nations together on a plan that
would mnke future conflicts Impossible.
There was a disposition not to ngreo
with the Impassioned plea of Rosa Gcnoll,
tho Italian leader, thnt the present war
can bo ended If the women will only
demand that the nations get together.
Only the few English women who came
hero specifically for the preliminary con
ferences nre on the ground. The British
Government refused passports for tho
majority of the scloctcd delegates, tnklnjf
the ground that to have so many English
women closo to an enemy's stronghold
would make an Inducement for tho enemy
to try nnd learn from them matter3
which were really military secrets.
The following revised resolutions wero
being considered by the conference today:
Providing for world-wide arbitration for
all subjects of International dispute.
Providing for an International pollco
force to enforce tho rulings of the Inter
national arbitration court.
Providing that men nnd women should
bo equally represented In the determina
tion of foreign policies and provldlnghat
no territory should change owners with
out tho consent of both the men nnd
women Inhabitants because the Influence
of tho women Is the strongest factor In
preventing war.
