"Long live the house of Savoy."
Royal Family on Balcony
'Finally the king and the queen and
the royal family came out upon the
balcony. His majesty was in the uni
form of a general. The crown- prince,
dressed as a sailor boy, waved his
cap to the multitude.
The excitement of the people arose
almost to a delirium.
The king- then did an unprecedented
thing. He igave orders that the, Italian
flajj be raised to the balcony. Then
amid the thundering cheers of the mul
titude his majesty advanced to the na
tional standard and folding it in his
arms embraced it. The royal family
then retired within the palace. Later

men inside and to them expressed his
gratitude for the loyalty and patriot
ism of the Roman people.
Loud Cheers For America
After the demonstration before the
Quirnal a great crowd with an Ameri
can flag carried at the head went to
the residence of United States Ambas
sador Page. Loud cheers for America
and demands for revenge for the Lusi
tania victims.
Gre at excitement was caused .in the
capita) to-night by the report that
Rignor Bullati, Italian ambassador, had
been assaulted while driving in the
street. It was learned later however,
that the incident was not so serious
as it was thought and that the police I
had begun a rigid investigation. Let

surrounds the second story. The archi- I
tects followed closely the design of the '
ancient tomb of King Mausolus. which j
stood in Halicarnassus and was one of
the seven wonders of the world. It !
was built by the wife of the king and
was decorated with hundreds of won
derful statues. This old tomb became
so famous that many buildings were
modeled after it, but' this is the only
structure in America in which the de
sign has been used.
Her Only Course
Ladv Anne Lindsay, the author of
the old, poem, "Aul.'l Robin Gray,"
was not only a delightful conversation
alist, but she was a great story teller.
This gift made her not onlv a wel
come guest abroad, but a valuable
member of the home circle, for it is
related in "A Group of Scottish Wom
en" that at a dinner party which she
was giving to some friends an old man
servant caused some amusement by say
ing in a perfectly audible undertone:
"My lady, you must tell another
story. The second course won't be
ready for five minutes."

After Tech'b Laurels
The rain of the last two days did not
seriously daftiage the cimlfcr track on
Island Park for this afternoon's cham
pionship meet for Pennsylvania schools
under auspices of the Harrisburg
Track Athletic Committee. On the con
trary it packed the cinder and this
was expected to aid in establishing new
records for this annual gathering of
scholastic athletes.
The downpour at, several times last
night was very heavy but early this
morning Park Commissioner Taylor
went to the island and' found conditions I
favorable for the meet. He then de
cided that unless another heavy show
er should interfere the meet would be
held as scheduled. The seats in the
stands were all cleared of water and'i
what sun shone this morning dried them I
nicely so that at noon the comfort of I
the spectators seemed, assured.
This is the ninth annual scholastic
meet to be held under the auspices of j
the Harrisburg committee. In point j
of the number of schools entered it
surpassed all the meets for several
years back. Two hundred athletes from
the following fifteen high schools were
Elizabethville, Harrisburg, Central,
! Harrisburg Tech, Lykens, Millersburg,
! Milton, Reading, Steelton, Waynesboro,
Columbia, Williamsport, Lancaster,
Chester, York and Lebanon.
Lancaster, Williamsport and Bead
ing entered full teams and came here
hoping to take laurels away from the
Harrisburg Technical High School
which had made the best record on the
track so far this season of any school
Cinder Track in Good Shape
The shield which has been competed
for for seven years will be formally
awarded to the Reading High School at
the end of to-day's meet, that school
having won the championship more
times than any other school in that
period. The winner of last year's
meet was Technical High, of Harris
burg, which holds th e shield until to
day, under the rules. The prize this
year is a new shield to be competed for
annually for seven years. In addition
the championship team will get a silver
cup and the runner-up a bronze cup.
Individual athletes taking first, sec
ond and third places in the different
events will receive gold, silver and
bronze medals, respectively. In the
scoring, first place counts 'five points;
second place, four; third place, three;
fourth place, two points, and fifth, one.
W. Orville Hiekok, 111, former in
tercollegiate champion weight thrower
for Yale, was 011 the program to ref
eree. The pole vault was scheduled' to
start at 1.45 o'clock and was expect
ed to last all afternoon. The first track
event, preliminaries in the one hundred
yard dash, was scheduled for 2 o'clock.
They Have Even Been the Means at.
Times of Saving Lives
Guns would not go even if warfare
were abolished. For example, the sig
nal gun of a ship is used to announce
her arrival on a coast. It would be
difficult to find an equallv effective
substitute. The 1 o'clock' gun, too,
which is fired by electricity
Greenwich observatory, is the most ef
fective means possible of announcing
the exact time to surrounding towns,
while nothing more impressive could
be found than the minute guns fired
for public mourning and the salute giv
en on occasions of public rejoicings.
Guns save lives as well as take them.
In desert countries, where it is difficult
to collect water out of a mere damp
ness of sand, gun barrels are often
sunk into the ground. By this means
moisture is collected in the bore and
many lives have been preserved by a
timely draw at the muzzle.
A slaver, captured with a crew of
slaves iu the tropics, was once put in
charge of a prize crew. During the
voyage water ran out and slaves, slav
ers and prize crew were all dying of
thirst. Then a sergeant hit on a bril
liant idea. Taking all the available
gun barrels, he plugged up the breach
ends of a few of them, filled their
bores with sea water ami set them end
up among the coals of the galley fire.
Then as the steam rose he ran it
through the other gun barrels till it
cooled. The cooling steam collected in
the shape of excellent fresh water and
bv this means scores of lives were
saved.—Pearson 's Weekly.
Trial by Jury
The "New York Law Journal" says
on the subject of trial by jury:
" While we do not think that trial
by jury ought to be abolished or that
there is any increasing sentiment in
that direction, we do believe that the
system should be modified by dispensing
with the requirement for unanimous
verdicts. This would obviate the ele
ment of individual eccentricity as an
impediment to the administration of
justice. Mental idiosyncrasy on the
part of judges is constantly exhibited
and scarcely excites comment. An emi
nent and very able judge will dissent
r'roni the ruling of his associates when
it is extremely difficult to understand
how so gifted a mind could have gone
off on that particular tangent. By per
mitting affirmances or reversals," not
withstanding dissent, the personal equa
tion is eliminated."

The Russians are credited with having
made progress on both flanks of the
Austro-German forces but apparently
have not been able to menace their
communications. The main struggle Is
being carried on along the San, from

still retain the advantages. An official
report from Petrograd states that at

Association's President Calls on Con
stituents' of Representatives Who
Voted Against Women Watchers'
Bills, to Punish Them at the Polls
Mrs. Frank M. Roessing. as president
of the Pennsylvania Woman Suffrage
Association, sent out last night an open
letter to the constituents of all the
Representatives whose votes helped to
defeat the bill in the House which
would hav<> permitted women watchers
to be at the polls in November when
the suffrage question will be voted on.
In this county the letter was addressed
to the constituents oi Representative
John ('. Nisslev and Representative
Walter S. Young. The letter says in
•'Of course, if your representatives
merely carried out your personal wishes
when they voted against a measure
framed to minimize the chances of
fraud at the polls, we have no criticism
to make. But we do not believe that
such is the case. We are convinced that
deep in the heart of every real man is
a love of fair play. Therefore we feel
confident that your representatives did
not truly represent you when they voted
against this measure, and we would ap
preciate it if you would let the public
know that uo man who betrays the
principles you stand for can 'expect
your vote as a candidate for re-election
to the Legislature."
The letter also says:
"Inasmuch as members of the same
well-organized lobby that defeated the
local option bill lobbied against the
watchers bill, we nre curious to know
if their activities influonced your rep
resentatives' votes, or of they voted
against our nv asure merely on the as
sumption that you, their constituents,
were averse to giving womenfolk a
square deal."
