"S""HEni3 has never been a summer
! In Seranton when so little was
iJ to be chronicled In a social
4,n im thin emientl. A I'nrt'
largo number of residents nre
out of town, and those who remain
liaVc been so busy dodging thunder
Btoi'ms that they have planned few en
tertainments. It Is too strenuous a life
to arrange picnics that have to bo en
joyed In the family living room be
cause n little cloud, nd bigger than a
man's hand appears In the western sky.
It Is discouraging to plan drives that

tated a large portion of the earth this
hcusou Is responsible for the particu
lar kind of summer we nr.c having, vol
canoes must really be a great nuisance
whether they are your own volcanoes
or not. .
The people who arc staying In town
have usually found the Country club
a Joy forever, but this season Its beau
ties are dimmed by reason of the ex
torsive changes going on there. The
house Is In great disorder from the en
1 tiro le-arrangement of the Interior and
the unwary visitor Is likely to come
away more or -less adorned with colon
ial streaks of pale yellow paint, which
tho workmen dab here and there with
The additions and improvements will
however be worth all present Incon
venience and everything Is assured of
completion within the next fortnight.
A party of campers as usual occupy
n. pleasant locution in the pines and
enjoy the cool night.
The deplorable Illness of several
Seranton boys who have been attend
ing Preparatory school at Pottstown
has been the source of Inllnltc anxiety
to a multitude of friends. Taylor Fos
ter, spn of Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Foster;
Curtis Piatt, eldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. F. E. Piatt, and Law Watklns
have all been In a serious condition.
Tho last narffed is still perilously 111
of typhoid fever at Iho home of his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Watklns,
on Monroe avenue. The others are con
valescing more or less slowly.
No blame Is attached to the directors
of the Pottstown school. When scarlet
fever unil typhoid was first discovered
' among the boys several weeks ago, a
vigorous investigation was instituted.
Tho water was analyzed and the physi
cians and board of health wore at a
loss to account for the few cases of
fciokness. Very recently, however, it
has been discovered that the sewer was
polluting the water of an artesian well
which formed the drinking supply of
the school. The work had been done
under tho direction of Colonel Waring
several yeais ago, and there was not
the slightest reason to suspect that a
break had occurred. Another boy, Fred
Swan, formerly of Seranton, was at-
tending the school, hut escaped tho
dlsease which seized the three who are
now at their homes In this city.
The fad for whistling among young
woman has not as yet struck Seranton
with any great violence, at least not to
the same extent as ping pong. Whethrr
they are Intimidated by the proverb
A whistling gill and a crowing hen
Always como to home bad end,
or whether they can't whistle, is not
lemonstrated. At any rate they do not
,eem to be particularly accomplished
In this line. Possibly they know that
It Is not improving to the curve of red
lips. Indeed, whistling not only forms
wrinkles about tho mouth, but coars
ens the texture of the skin, making the
softest lips hard and unklssublc. Dear,
dear! how pathetic!
The" whist players of the Seranton
Bicycle club are entering into their
favorite game with more than usual
enthusiasm now-a-days. The fact that
the champion team, Messrs. J. V. Du
senbury. T. II, Dale, Wallace and Hin
termelster, suffered disastrous defeat at
the hands of the Juniors, Messrs. F. P.
Price, I. A. Allabach, Dusenbury and
Grant Pelton, the other night, has
spieud gloom and consternation over
the duplicate boards in the Bicycle
club. What will bo donu about It has
not yet been divulged.
Mrs. II. H. Brady, jr., who has been
at the home of her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. C. D. Simpson during the absence

One of the first nnd most Instlng Im
pressions created on the minds nf thoso
who see "A Chinese Honeymoon" nt tho
Cnslno Is Its absolute cleanness nnd
wnoicsomeness. Tliere Is not a sugges
tion of smut or sal.idousncss throughout
nearly three hours of rollicking fun,
catchy tunefulness nnd bright stage pic
tures. This Is In such strong contrast to
other plays which have been produced nt
Broadway theatres, and alleged to bo
musical comedies thnt It Is the cnuse of
frequent comment. The attendance at
the Cnslno clenrly proves that even tho
most blase dwellers In Gotham can be
come enthusiastic over a really flrst-clnss
nnd clean performance.

CHOOL CONTROLLERS have
rather more troubles than most
people. It Is a continual source
of astonishment that men enough can
be found who will consent to martyr
dom for nothing a year. It Is another
indication of the genuine public spirit
that animates the American citizen.
He doesn't seem to mind having hope
ful teachers in voluminous supplies
camping out on the door-mat of his
residence, awaiting his return front'
business. He doesn't seem to grow dis
couraged by having to step over them
In his ofllce corridors, or because of
being called up at preposterous hours
In the night by u zealous 'Steenth
warder, who has a niece, or a cousin,
or a brother-in-law's step-mother, with
a massive Intellect and a desire to
His wife generally minds Jt all, and
for the life of her can't see why a man,
who alleges himself to bo In his senses,
desires at the same time to ho on tho
school hoard. "It must be those edify
ing meetings!" she sighs.
Out In New Castle, this state, tli
teachers are most persistent in making
their amplications for schools. It is
nothing now for tho New Castle citi
zen of prominence to be called to ac
count by his wife for carrying photo
graphs of likely-looking young women
In his breast pocket, and to be obliged
"Never saw her In my life, my dear.
She's from Podunk or somewhere else,
and she wants a school. She's only
one of many who have hud their photo
graphs taken In order to make a favor
able Impression on a susceptible school
board. We've all got pictures of 'cm.
1 assure you, Ann Eliza, I'm not spe
cially favored. Ask Mis. Drown!" And
further investigations prove the truth
of the statement.
One teacher got herself hired on the
strength of her photograph. It was a
classic pose, with. the hair done Inno
cently in a Grecian knot, and a glimpse
of white throat to he seen above soft
laces. "Has a nlco high forehead," was
the verdict of the oldest school director
on the board, who himself hnd rather
n high brow, through no choice of his
own, having secretly a preference for
hair on the top of his head, t
"And such a smart kind of nose,"
said another. "Women with that sort
of nose, know how to manage children
and make good men nnd women out of
"cm. My mother hnd the sumo nose."
"Yes, nnd she has sharp eyes," com
mented a third, nnd so they hired her.
Hut when she arrived on,llm first
day of school, like the Individuals In
the personal column of the Herald, she
had changed awfully. Tho Grecian knot
was a tight, hard one at tho back of
her head, and thero must have been n
great deal of retouching on that neck
In tho photograph, to havo eliminated
tho evident anatomical and muscular
structure. The only mun who expressed
himself ns satisfied was the director
who had nn eye for noses. "She's got
the nose, sure," he declured, nnd she
nau. it was nigh of bridge and pointed
ut the end.
"Oh, no, that wasn't my photograph,"
she remarked placidly, when (mentioned
coyly on the subject. "1 heard that It
Is tho custom to send nhotnm-nnbs
along with applications for schools, nnd
as i had not sut for a photograph for
twenty-two years, I sent my niece's,
who looks Just ns I looked nt her nge,
Sho teach V Ob, no. She couldn't con
trol a klndergaVten of three pupils, but
she is going to try to manage a man.
He's the school director down our wny,
and they're to be married next month."
The man In a Panama hat Is a beau
tlful being. I nm almost of the opin
ion that the gay coquettish brim of ths
Panama Is tho entering wedge, if so
aesthetic a brim can be called a wedge,
which will force open the barriers to
more artistic dress for men. The shirt
waist began to look like a wedge, but
this hasn't been a shirtwaist summer
and the wedge has had no chunce.
But the Panama hat Is different. It
Is rakish, lilrtutlous, romantic, enticing,
all In one anything, In fact, but so
vere and ugly, like all the other ar
tides of wearing apparel affected by
civilized man. It Is only the barbari
ans who know how to dress decently
und attractively. Where will yqu find
any other except civilized men who
wear high collars and hot, tall hats
and heuvy coats, who aio restless and
troublesome In tho summer, and want
to shoot people, and have strikes and
trusts and corners In oats, und wreck
and ruin In general? The sensible ones
In graceful flowing robes, or even less,
nre contented to snooze at noontime,
Instead of going to saloons or political
meetings, or wnr. If nil the Idiotic,

eo how much nicer nnd more amiable
are we. with our frills and chlffom,
Aren't wc, now? Saucy Dcss.

"CRUEL" O'REILLY SENT BY THE KING OF SPAIN TO CRUSH THE REBELLIQN. ;
UNEXPECTED DIFFICULTIES CONFRONT THE REVOLUTIONARY LEADERS. '
LAFRENIERE'S EFFORT TO ESTABLISH THE REPUBLIC OF LOUISIANA " -.0
HEN HE was Informed by
Count Aranda that Nicholas
Chauvln do Lafrenlcrc nnd
the other revolutionists who
had expelled Don Anlonlondc
Ulloa, the Spanish governor of Louisi
ana, hoped to establish a republic,
Charles III of Spain, who had been In
doubt whether or hot he should at
tempt to hold Louisiana, sent Count
Alexander O'Reilly with a fleet of twenty-four
vessels and an army of !!,G00
picked men to suppress the rebellion
nnd establish Spanish authority. Un
der the census which had been taken
by Ulloa before hJs expulsion, 'Louisi
ana contained at the time only 1,80.1
men "nble to bear arms" and a total
white population of only 5,Cb-. The ad
vent of this fleet before New Orleans
followed by the landing of the over
whelming Spanish force on Aug. 17,
17G9, crushed out the revolution, which
had begun so auspiciously with the ex
pulsion' of Ulloa In October, 1768. The
usual Spanish fusllade followed as a
matter of course.
Tho situation In which Lafrcnlere
and his associates In the conspiracy
found themselves after they had occu
pied New Orleans with tho Insurgent
forces and had driven out Ulloa, was
full of unexpected difficulties. As the
attorney general of the King of France
and senior member of the Superior
Council, Lafrenlere had appealed to
the loyalty of the French Creoles of
Louisiana In favor of French re-occu-puatlon
as against Spain. The idea of
establishing the colony as an independ
ent republic, was confined at first to
the inner circle of the conspiracy, and
although It was well enough known to
form the principal topic of Count Ar
anda's argument in tho Spanish cabi
net, the revolutionists in New Orleans'
were never able to find a time after
the expulsion of the Spanish governor,
when they could proclaim the republic,
with confidence that It would be sup
ported not only against Spain, but also
against the King of France, who was
determined to give Spain possession.
The revolution had succeeded largely
through appeals mado to French loyal
ty, and Aubry, tho Spanish governor
who remained In control of tho French
troops In tho colony was a determined
royalist, who regarded the Republicans
In the Superior Council of tho colony as
rebels and traitors. He sympathized
with them as Frenchmen, nnd at 'the
last he Interceded with Count O'Reilly
for their lives, but his attitude to them
In no ono thing is good or bad
breeding moro quickly discerned than
in an individual's tablo manners,

During their Independent control of
the Superior Council of the colony,
which lasted from October, 1768, to Au
gust, 1769, they were thus unable to
secure the support of tho colonists
themselves as against France, while
Aubry ns tho French governor, unable
on their account to exercise his au
thority, maintained himself as the rep
resentative of France and of the as
pirations of tho people for reunion with
France, while awaiting lor the dYrlval
of the Spanish fleet, to surrender them
The "Intendnnt commissary" of tho
colony, Foucault, who ub a member of
the Superior Council, hnd been active
in the 'first stages of the revolution,
now deserted Lafrcnlere and co-qperat-cd
with Aubry against the revolution
ists who, ho declared, had no legal au
thority to expel the Spanish governor.
The first mission sent by the colonists
to France with Jean Mllhet as envoy
having failed, a second was sent after
the expulsion of Ulloa, but the. Duke
of Cholseul, prime minister of France,
received at about the same time Au
bry's dispatches denouncing Lafrcnlere
and his associates as rebels and revo
lutionists, All tho comfort the major

from the appeal to France, was a re
Iteration of the unalterable determina
tion of the French court to turn over
the colony to Spain. (
The colonists were thus greatly dis
couraged and as the republican propa
ganda had not been ventured on in ap
pealing to them at the beginning, they
began to grow despairing and apathetic.
Lafrenlere, Marquis and the leaders of
the revolution, now began to do every
thing possible to estnblish the republic
of Louisiana before the arrival of the
Spanish fleet. They sent envoys to se
cure English support and busied them
selves with drawing up plans for a re
publican government. Finding Aubry
not to bo shaken from his determina
tion to carry out the orders of the
King of France, they proposed to ex
pel him, but they seem to have been
unable to muster support in any move
ment which required the co-operation
of the colonists against France as well
as against Spain.

republican spirit which they 'had'"ob- ' .

came convinced that France, Spain arid
Englnnd for reasons too obvious to be
enumerated, would never permit ther
rebellion to termlnato successfully Ir "

Louisiana. They therefore abandoned ,
the idea as Quixotic, but they never- -theless
bequeathed to their posterity
the right of claiming for Louisiana "the "
merit of having been the first European
colony that, entertained" the design ol
proclaiming her Independence. The
stoutest hearts and the noblest minds,
however, can not achieve' Impossibili
ties. While their leaders were preparing 'a
republican constitution and circulating J
republican documents, the colonists
continued to be alarmed and depressed
by reports of the overwhelming nature
of the preparations made by Spain to
suppress the revolt. When the Span
ish fleet and army, commanded by
Count O'Reilly with the authority of
viceroy,, appeared at the mouth, of the
Mississippi, It was already apparent to
the leaders of the revolution that Its
success, was hopeless, but nevertheless
they determined to make a final effoyt
to rouse the colonists to resistance. '

Hlppomalgi and Herodotus says that
tho Scythians deprived their slaves of

valued in Russia that sanatoriums
whero tho kumyss cure Is used, are
numerous. It resembles buttermilk In
taste, but has a brothy appearance,
and the casein of tho milk is coagu

Matzoon, called Taourt by tho
Turks, is especially popular In Bul
garia and Turkey. It is usually made
from tho milk of tho buffalo, which is
extremely rich and thick. A llttlo of
the, old Matzoon Is always kept on
hand for a "starter," just as our
grnndmothcis kept yeast. About
threo pints of milk nre put over the
fire to boll, grent enro' being tnken
thnt It does not scorch. When It has
como to a good boll, It Is set oft to
cool until just a little hotter than
lukewarm. An eighth ot a cup of old
Matzoon Is then stirred through It
very thoroughly, and tho dish set
asldo for several hours. It will then
bo found thickened liko loppored milk,
only much richer.
All our American missionaries and
teachers. In Turkey nnd the Balkans,
grow very fond of this dish. At Rob
