I Wee's S News
THE present week Is one of the
Scranton weeks that wo often
have. Wo never do things Just as
Other towns nrc In the habit of doing.
We are not satisfied with one meek
little convention, or one modest little
concert or pink tea. We must always
liave bigger uffalrs, and more of them
nl thr aame tltnn than any other city
of thla size would attempt.
Now this week for Instance, most
people would have been contented with
one spectacular performance, but wo
must have a Knights Templar con
clave, a national eisteddfod, and a
ftrlkc nf which we elect to bo a storm
centre, besides pnuslng for a while near
the nation's dead. The Knights Tem
plar, with their fair plumes and thjclr
Hlcumlng' banners, delighted the eye
and quickened the pulses because of tho
splendid and mmantlu sentiment for
which they stand today. The eisteddfod
delights tho ear with Us magnificent
choruses and Its lovely songs , and
speaks to us of a great element of our
national life, a part of our American
Ism, which lifts It Into tho realms of
poetry, of song and rare mental attain
ments. For this nrc we Indebted to tho
Welsh race which now makes up such
a. valued portion of true American citi
zenship. Ours Is mi honored city this
week, and never have wo had more
honor than In the guests who have been
within our gates during the brief period
jwhlch closes tonight.

E. B. Spencer, of Philadelphia. Arter
the awarding or the prizes It was nn
nouneed that Miss Cora Morris Grlflln,
who has established her reputation as
an nrtlst, was to read for them. Her
delightful presence and sweet, modest
manner pave her way right to tho
hearts of her hearers. Her power Is felt
before a word Is uttered. That same
unaffected style which has won the ad
miration of so many immense audiences
Is found when called upon to entertain
smaller numbers. Her humor is de
lightful and carries with it that refine
ment that only an artist can give. Her
pathetic numbers are masterly. Having
a low, srfrcot voice she is particularly
adapted to this line of work. Those
who heard Miss Grlflln Indorse the
compliment paid her by Victor Herbert.
When Mr. Herbert heard Miss Griffin
last winter at Carnegie hall, he re
marked: "Wonderful! One of the best
readers I ever heard. And oh, what a

A Knight Templar is a beautiful
creature. Women all agree to
that. A certain halo of distinc
tion hovers ever him (when he has on
his war paint) which is almost unique.
To some degree It' attends the army
and the navy since a halo is a special
attribute of a uniform, but the Knight
Templar's halo is a trifle more bur
nished, a little larger in circumference
to a woman's eyes, than even the one
poised over the head of her favorite
It is chiefly a matter of feathers. If
the American man. who is said to be
so "completely relegated to the back
ground by tho women of his family,
wishes to regain his lost hceptre of con
trol, lie should make an effort to have
plumes adopted as an important acces
sory to the masculine costume. You
can't. snub a man who wearsa long
plume, even if it does look as if it had
been attached to his headgear by the
safe and sure asslstanco of tenpenny
nnils and a pot of glue. You simply
can't do It. No matter how insignifi
cant he may be in his other clothes,
that long plume fetches you and un
consciously you bow down to his dig
nity and importance. He knows it, too,
and he takes on airs because of being
clothed in a little biief uuthority over
feminine self-conlldence. He may be a
very ordinary sort of personage minus
his feathers, but somehow he manages
to live up to the feathers, and every
woman sees In him a reincarnated Sir
I-auncelot, or another Galahad, or a Sir
Percival riding down to many-towered
Cnmelot in the sweet May.
Generally, however, he Is about what
femininity believes him to be a pretty
good sort with reasonably high ideals
and nmbitlons. The strenuous life of a
knight of old wouldn't especially ap
peal to him, for he has lived long
enough not to be anxious to go through
the world looking for trouble. He
doesn't yearn to fight every other man
he meets, because of some fancied
grievance, and he Isn't advertising for
lorn maidens to champion, but he will
fight for the l Ight, and he Is chivalrous
to all women and honorable with all
men, and perhaps. In his steady-going,
unromanlic way, he redresses' more
wrongs than the knights of old, with all
their dazzling feats of arms and the
prevalence of gore In their Immediate
Most women labor under tho halluci
nation that Knights Templar live, move
and have their being for the sole pur
pose of giving an annual ball. Yet it is
said that this Is really an error. Theie
aro a few other things they have to do
besides bother with balls. They learn
verses and recite them to each other,
much as we used to do In Sunday
school, and then they, do Initiations and
other weird things, The remainder of
their time during tho year they devote
to devising souvenirs, In order to see a
bargain counter rush or a, tea fight on
reception nights, Really, you never
would have believed what a lot of
grasping women there are In Scranton,
unless you should have seen them try
ing to get things from the Mary com
mandery Monday night, Such crowd
ing beat even n circus, One very largo
nnd very handsome man at the door of
St, Luke's parish house had a job that
some of tho otheis envied him, and
tried to dislodge him from the same In
vuln, It was to keep the people iu line,
and the crush wus something fearful.
Tho way he kept them -In-Una was to
give an imitation of "London Bridge Is
falling down." Ho would' catch a wo
mun 'In the- .front- rank-and hold' her
very firmly not particularly tenderly,
but firmly in both his arm's and no one
could got past that combination, My,
but he was a strong man, and the. way
he kept that crowd back was remark
able. When the women got past nnd finally
reached the goal, which was the sou
venir table after forming a line like
the patrons .of- u . soup-kitchen they
received a beautiful .sjlyer ,ai)d crystal
box; that Is, If they were not In the
dolorous condition of the foolish virgin
and hud not neglected to provide them
selves wth h ticket of Invitation, Then
they ute some -Ice cream, und went out
through tho cellar. Then they said,
pompously, to their friends struggling
on the outside; "We had, the, most
beautiful time. Lots of room In there."
Over at the Kadosh commundcry
there were souvenir pins, and there was
also a crush. Tho samo scenes were
witnessed at Guernsey hnll, where the
DIeu le Yeut conimnnderx, of Wllkes
Barre, bestowed sterling silver hat pins,
adorned with coal breakers.
Beautifully gowned ludles, 'ntid stately
knights held a reception at the Jermyn,
und served mild punch and little cukes.
They had a lonesome evening, If they
had distributed something even If It
were nothing more than a celluloid
hnlrpln from the ten-cent Btore they
would have found their rooms thronged
and would have had their back breadths
walked up nnd down ns long ns the
hnlrplns held out. We ccrtulnly aro
nflrr, the loaves and fishes wo women.
They sny that they never have had
such n ball nnd that they probably
never will until thoy come to Scranton
again. Here Is where the feathers come
In once more. That ball wouldn't have
been one-half as attractive It It were
not for tho plumes. The New York
commnndery men who were present
spoko rather slightingly of the Key
stone fenthers. They said that tho fnd
of having the plumes longer nnd longer,
grow like Mr. Finney's turnip, until
they hung halfway down their spines.
It began to be n problem how they
could be made any more extensive, nnd
flnnlly one bravo knight bobbed his off
rather closo to the Inst end of his
chapeau, and It was decided to make It
a custom to wear them shorter. They
seem, to think, these New Yorkers, that
their fashion Is far the better, but It
Isn't, you know. It Is only the fable of
the fox over again. You remember he
was cuught In a trap nnd lost most of
his tall, and then he persuaded his
friends and contemporaries that It was
much more stylish for foxes to wear
their tails short. So they cut them off.
The plumes worn by some of the sir
knights were simply superb. Every
woman In tho vicinity broke a com
mnndment whenever she looked at
them. How lovely one would be curl
ing round a Gainsborough this sum
mer of picturesque hotsl nnd the moths
wouldn't cat It up, either.
Just think, I overheard two very dis
tinguished sir knights talking very
earnestly, and you would have natur
ally supposed that the subject of their
conversation must be nothing less than
their lofty ideals and ambition for their
great order. This was what they said:
"She put some sort of Infernal stuff In
the box that makes everybody Bnlff,
look at me and tlien edge off, as if they
thought I had just escaped from a
smallpox retreat."
"I wish my wlfo had done that," the
other complained, gloomily. "She lef
my plume get all chewed up, and when
I kicked about It the other morning she
got mad and said she wasn't going to
sit up nights nnd tend that feather, and
that I'd better hire a valet; she was
tired of the job. What do you think of
that? And yet some folks say marriage
isn't a failure." Saucy Bess.

PROBABLY' no visitor to Scran
ton ever made friends more
rapidly upon short acquain
tance than Mr. Vernon Dow
sett, tlie well known London theatrical
manager, who was lecently guest of
Pianist T. Reeve Jones. Mr. Dowsett,
who is manager of Tivolt theatre, one
of the largest vaudeville houses in the
world, has had a caieer in the profes
sion that has been fraught with suc
cesses. To a chance acquaintance even
the prosperity that has accompanied
his enterprises Is not surprising when
one lias opportunity to become familiar
with the pleasing personality and gen
ial temperament of the man. The fac
ulty of winning friends in every walk
of life, coupled with shrewd business
tact and the ability to judge human na
ture, are accomplishments that make
the labors of the theatrical manager
comparatively easy and enable the sub
ject of this sketch to ever carry the
buoyancy of youth In social, domestic
or business life. While his visit to this
country was brief Mr. Dowsett made
hosts of friends who viewed his depar
ture for London lust week with genuine
regret, and will be prepared to give
him a warm welcome upon his next trip
to America.
Musical Gossip.
The Symphony orchestra concprt which
takes placo at the Lyceum on June V, to be a most Interesting af
fair irom a local standpoint, The per
sonnel of the orchestra is local, compris
ing tho pick of Scranton's professional
and nmateur talent, whilo tho soloist for
this concert Is to be one of the most
piomlslug of our younger singers, Mlbs
Grace Spencer, who will make her pro
fessional debut at this concert, MUs
Spencer has long been recognized as one
possessing unusual talent. Sho has been
In defutlgable and conscientious In her
woik and In her two arias from grand
operu, with th accompaniment of a
full orchestra, she should make a
mniked impiesslou. Tho orchestra will
perfoim the eighth Beethoven sym
phony, called familiarly tho "short one,"
the- overturo to the "Bronze Horse"
opera-buffo, a sulto for strings by Victor
Herbert and "In tho Garden," by Lund.
Mr. Humberger eNpects to inako a great
dpul of a composition lie brought out in
Curlsrulio while conducting there, and
which was received with the greatest
enthuhljsni wherever It was performed,
It Is an old German folk song, taken as
a theme, and variations upon It aro after
tho characteristic fashion of nearly all
the Immortal composers. Tho song it
self Is very popular, as It Is whistled and
Ming by nearly everyone, and Will be re
cognized at' once when heard. The first
vailutlon Is a choral and fugue as
Bach might have done It; tho second
variation is a sonata ns Beethoven
would luivn It. the thlld a string quar
tette as Haydn would Ilka It, nnd the
hiicceedlng numbers as Verdi, Gounod,
Strauss, Brahms, Wagner. Schubert or
Meyerbeer would probably have nr
langed It. The whole Is brought to a
climax with a string match that should
arouse even the frigid and quicken tho
pulse of the most indlffeient. The work
Is by Selgfiied Ochs and tho manner 111
which ho treats tho familiar character
istics of tho different composers is con
sidered marvelous by all contrapuntal
students. Tho concert, taken as a whole,
will be the most brilliant, tho most
pleasing to overy heaier, and tho most
varied In character that has even been
attempted by local musicians. Mr.
Ilembcreer is working very hard to sur
pass his previous achievements. The de-
muna lor tiCKuts aircauy assures ino
success of tho concert.

Some Explanation of Its Size and a
Guess at Its Cause.
I'rcm the New York Times.
All Kngllsh schoolmaster has Just
completed an exhaustive reseuich Into
the subject of a boy's capacity for food.
In summing up the case, ho Is frank to
admit that while he found u super
abundance of capacity, there was act
ually little or no limit.
Perhaps after rich cake, both fruit
and plain, the first favor, according to
the schoolmaster, Is condensed milk.
This Is often eaten without it spoon by
simply making -two small holes In the
top of the can and placing the lips
ugnlnst them. Then, after this, come
chocolates, chocolate creuni, chocolate
candy, chocolate cuke,
"It may be thought I um exaggerat
ing," lie says, "when I say that I have
seen a hoy of ten, years eat In a Single
afternoon enough food to satisfy an
adult party of twelve persons, I have
myself known a little, frull boy to eat
ii portion of n rich cake, a thlld of a
one-pound can of condensed milk, four
ounces of mixed chocolate, a handful of
assorted sweets, two oranges, one ap
ple, four gingerbread cakes, a dozen
Brazil nuts and two largo pieces of
peppermint candy.
"Did It make him 111? Did he lie down
and groan nnd await tho comlns of tho
medical man with tho stomach pump?
Not he; just had one or two symptoms
of uneasiness, which he quickly dis
pelled by a few well-drawn gapes,
much after tho manner of a sleeping
baby. Then he walked about for a
time, und presently accepted an Invita
tion to Join In a game of ball."
