VANDERBILT CUP WINNER.
George Robertcon'a Luck In Escaping
Harm on His Fast Ride.
When George Robertson lu his loco
mobile passed the line as the winner
of the Vnnderbllt cup at tho great race
over the now Long Island motor park
way It wns'the flrst tlmo In tho history
of tho trophy that an American car
piloted by an American driver had
won It. To make tho victory still more
complete, the victory scored by Robert
son was won In tho fastest average
tlmo and after tho closest finish In the
records of Vanderbllt cup races. Rob
ertson also had tho distinction of scor
ing the fastest lap of tho day. Most
remarkable of nil was the fact that he
won after a mishap which caused his
car to leave tho course In tho last lap.
Tho delay occasioned was only two
minutes, and Ilobertson did not lose
his nerve, but got back on the track
and sped away toward tho finish at the
same breakneck Bpced as before.
Robertson, whose tlmo averaged 04.3
miles an hour, flew over tho 258.00
miles in 4 hours 48 seconds, 1 minute
48 seconds ahead of Herbert Lytic, in
an Isotta, who was the only other
driver officially timed at the finish.
After risking his life again and again
In tho course of his eleven trips around
tho circuit and coming safely through
all these dangers Robertson hod the
misfortune to sprain an auklo after ar
riving In New York In simply stepping
from his cur to the pavement.

YUAN SHI KAI.
Great Chinese Statesman Who 8uo-
ceeded.to Shoes of LI Hung Chang.
The Chinese, whose Interest In things
American has been greatly stimulated
by tho visit of Admiral Spcrry's fleet
to their shores and by tho current dis
cussion of closer relations between Chi
na and tho United States, have a pro
gressive leader In the great liberal
statesman Yuan Shi Kill. Ills country
homo Is near tho summer palace, about
twelve miles out from Pcktu, and It
was here that he recently celebrated
his fiftieth birthday, an occasion of
which the high class Chinaman makes
much. Ho is one of tho busiest of all
the high officials of China and, though
VIOBROY YUAN RBI KAI.
he has now reached the half century
mark, thinks nothing of working from
4 o'clock In tho morning to a late hour
at night, much of that time receiving
In audlenco tho many subordinate offi
cials responsible to him. Speaking a
short time ago of American and Chi
nese relations, he said:
"We have never in tho whole course
of our international dealings had occa
sion to suspect the United States of
coveting any of the territory of China.
The government of the United States
has demonstrated this not once, but
many times. The last net, that of re
leasing China from the payment of a
large portion of tho Boxer indemnity,
has greatly impressed the Chinese peo
ple with the special consideration felt
for them by the American neoDle." c
Yuan Shi Kal proved n voluablo
friend to the foreigners in China at tho
tlmo of the Boxer Insurrection. He
was then governor of Shantung prov
ince. On the death of LI Hung Chang
he succeeded that eminent 'Statesman
as viceroy of Chill, the metropolitan
province of tho empire. He has been
In official life more than thirty years,
but it is only within tho last decade
that he has become an International
figure, and he is now by many ranked
as the foremost statesman In the king
dom of tho "Great Khan," which con
tains one-fifth of the inhabitants of the
globe. It Is fortunate for tho future of
China and for the continuance of good
relations with the United States that
he Is an aggressive reformer, a friend
of progress toward the highest Ideals
For awhllo after he became metro
poll tan viceroy Yuan moved with cau
tion. Meanwhile his foreign officers
steadily augmented and drilled the lu
shun, or new army, which Yuan had
secured the permission of the empress
dowager to create. Then came the
Russo-Japanese war and the wave of
pan-orientalism In Its wnke. New
forces began to stir In China. Yuan
took notice, carefully estimated their
direction and strength and assumed a
position moderately In the van, nlways
ready, however, to sidestep at the least
sign of reaction. On one side he used
his influence with the empress dow
ager, whom ho was Instrumental lu ex
tricating from the palace intrigue of
1803, while on the other ho encouraged
the progressive clement and took pains
to attach the more able men among It
to his pcrsoual fortunes. At the pres
ent time there is perhaps no one in
China except the empress dowager
wno wicias n greater muuence tnan
Yuan Shi Kal.

The Woman That Hustled
Copyright, 1903, by T. C. McClure.J
For several years tho new church at
Hawesvllle remained unpalnted and
without a cupola. It was owned joint
ly by tho Methodists and tho Baptists.
Ono day the widow Larking set tho
ball a-rolling with a view of getting
tho work done. Not a1 hint escaped
her that she was working for an ob
ject. It was eight months later that
carpenters began work aud It was
learned who had raised tho money.
Tho painters followed tho carpenters.
nnd the second coat was hardly dry
when the bell arrived and was hoisted
into position. There was a grand turn
out for the first Sunday. The minis
ters of both denominations wcro to oc
cupy the pulpit, and there would be
"talks" Instead of sermons.' To the
amazement of everybody who looked
over the assemblage tho widow Lar
klns was not present. It was known
that she. was home, and no one had
heard that she was 111, and what had
kept her away no one could giiess.
After tho Bervlce Parson Turner wend
ed his wny to her house to solve the
problem. Ho found her In tears, and
the tnoro solicitous he was the moro
tears she shed. There Is an end to
even woman's tears, however, and by
nnd by the widow wiped hers nwoy
and controlled her voice and said:
I am glad you came. I have a con
fession to make. There are several
things that weigh on my conscience,
and that was the reason I was not nt
service this morning. Pnrson. you
know I set out all alone to get that
carpenter work done."
"I know, and It was ft brave thing of
"I owned a kicking cow. It was
known to everybody In the village that
she was a kicker. She has kicked
over moro of her milk than was ever
saved. I would have been glad to sell
her for $10. One day a man came
along from Cherry Hill, and I sold
her to him for 17. I never said o
word about her kicking. That $17
bought the first lumber. Do you think
I can ever bo forgiven for my sin?"
"Uml Urn!" said tho parson to him
self. "You were not asked if the cow
"Well, I shouldn't worry much. It Is
quite possible that with other sur
roundings she may cease to kick at
'I owned two spotted hogs," contin
ued tho widow. "They were running
around the village for a year and were
several times complained of as nui
"Yes; they rooted up my garden last
"Well, a hog buyer came along one
day and offered mo $3 nplecc for them.
Ho drove them away after dark.
When ho paid mo he paid for three
spotted hogs instead of two. Ho must
have driven away ono belonging to
others. I didn't notice the mistake un
til the drover was gone, and then L
did not run after him. I turned that
odd hog into more lumber."
"Uml Urn! I can't exactly see how
you can bo held responsible for tho
hog buyer being nearsighted. You
might have run after him and ex
plained that he had paid you for an
extra hog, but you didn't think of It
until too late. I should say that every
hog removed from our village to some
distant sphere was a distinct gain for
us. A hog In a mudbolc Is a nui
sance; a hog turned Into a cupola of a
church Is a joy forever."
"You know I wont to Chicago about
three months ngo. I have some world
ly relatives there. When I told them
of the work I was engaged In they
were much interested. My brother-in-law
insisted that I put $10 on the
races on n ten to one shot. I was in
duced against my will to do it, and
my horse camo in ahead. I got $100
in cash, and that went into tho cupola.
I am feeling now that it was the great
est sin of nil."
"Well, I don't know," mused the par
eon. "You did not bet through any
"No. I had the cupola In mind all
"You didn't see any of the horses
nbused or urged beyond their
"No. They really appeared to enjoy
It. It was the first tlmo in all my life
that I ever bet on a horso race, and I
"Uml Of course the principle of
horse racing Is wrong very wrong
but there are occasions when an Inno
cent person mny bo persuaded against
his own Judgment. You did not go to
Chicago to bet on the race?"
"Oh, no, no, no! I didn't know that
such n thing wns contemplated."
"It was your brother-in-law who sug
gested that you lay a wager?"
"And you showed a proper relue
tonco for a time?"
"Well. I don't think tho sin Is unfor
givable. Besides, the money has gono
Into the cupola and can't be separated
from tho rest. Is there onythlug
"There there lu!" groaned the wid
ow as her tears began to fall again.
"You didn't attend a prize fight, I
"No. I was not so lost as that. My
brother-in-law came home ono inorulug
and asked how much money I lacked
to finish tho cupola. I counted up and
found It was $12. He laughed nnd
threw me over tho money."
'That was very kind of hlra," mimed
the parson. M. QUA&
Sweeping the Ocean Floor Instead of
Tho mishap of tho cruiser Yankco
brings forth the comment that it is
tho more remarkable as occurring on
tho coast "perfectly charted." Pre
mising that the Yankeo got off her
course in a dense fog, it may be said
that, while our coast Is as well charted
as that of any nation, "perfect" is not
the characterization yet to be employ
ed. The methods of surveying tho
ocean floor to locate reefs And shoals
are now undergoing a revolution which,
when fully accomplished, will reveal
to tho mariner many danger polntB
which have heretofore escaped record.
Tho old way of finding out reefs and
rocks not evident to tho eye wns by
sounding. Now the coast survey pro
ceeds by "sweeping" that is, by sink
ing to the depth n plpo bar, which is
trailed along by two boats, ono nt each
end of the cable passing through it
Any obstruction encountered is imme
diately pcrccptlblo and Is nt once
noted, located and observed. Coastal
waters are carefully "platted," and
each plat Is thoroughly gono over.
The superiority of "sweeping" over
"sounding" Is made evident by the
fact that in a comparatively limited
area of the Mnlno const, covering
rather more than forty linear miles,
fifteen reefs have been discovered
heretofore unchnrted. It often hap
pens In-sounding that the lead line
avoids some narrow spindle of rock
whose point Is Just below the surface
of the water and which goes unchart
ed. When tho cruiser Brooklyn was
gashed by ono of these unsuspected
pinnacles on our coast n few years
ago It was found to be isolated and
surrounded with deep water up to
within a few feet of its sides. Sweep
ing will minimize the probability of
repetitions of such accidents. Boston
Umbrella as a Weapon.
In one of the women's fencing schools
of Paris Instruction In the art of at
tack and defense with foils has been
discontinued nnd umbrellas Instituted,
says Popular Mechanics.
The first lesson the pupils learn lu
this up to date means of defense from
nttnek on the streets Is to baffle tfie
watchfulness of the aggressor by skill
ful blows. The most simple and at the
same time most cffcctlvo consists In
applying n flat stroke of the umbrella
upon his headgear. Surprised by this
stroke nnd perhaps blinded by the rim
of the hat, he has not the time nor the
presence of mind to seize the um
brella. The lunges which follow such
a blow are not only effective, but dan
gcrous. The first is known as tho hors
do combat blow. Seizing her umbrella
near tho handle with one band and
near the point with the other nnd ad
vancing a step well forward, the point
If well directed ngatnst the center of
the aggressor's neck will drop him to
the ground senseless and probably
badly hurt. The same blow aimed at
the pit of the stomach will probably
send tho recipient to the hospital and
perhaps cripple him for life.

The Comet Now and Then.
Times have changed since 450 years
ago, when Halley's comet, for whose
reappearance astronomers' are now
