Padoubny May Vllt America.
Another giant foreign wrestler Is to
visit this country In quest of money
nnd fame. The recent successes of the
two famous grapnlcrs, Ernest Siegfried,
"the German Onk," and Yussllt Mah
mout, the Bulgarian, who is matched
to wrestle Frank Gotch for the cham
pionship of the world, have caused lvnn
Padoubny, the giant llusslan wrestler.
to announce his intention of coming to
America early In the summer to try
to secure a match with this country'.
best mat artlstB. Padoubny Is six
feet seven Inches In height and welgh3
'oUU pounds. Out-of the last six great
wrestling carnivals held in ParlB the
giant wrestler has won five and would
have captured the sixth, but ho was
unable to be present.
Philadelphia Americans' New Park.
Built of steel nnd concrete, with n
seating capacity of 20,000 nnd stand
ing room upon nnd about It for 27,
000 more, the Philadelphia American
league's new baseball grand stand Is
the greatest In the world and far and
away the most durable and the most
oruate. It Is as different from the
usual run of grand stands as the mod
ern opera house Is different from the
circus tent. It Is fireproof, crowd
proof, waterproof. This huge struc
ture will bo ready to the last detail
for the grand Inaugural of the baseball
season of 1000 on April VI.
Refused $75,000 For Peter the Great.
G. II. Moore of St. Clair, Mich., who
recently bought the three-year-old colt
Robert C. from W. E. D. Stokes for
$12,000, purchased from Mr. Stokes
the yearling filly by the trotting stal
lion Peter the Great, out of Margaret
A., and the yearling filly by Peter the
Great, out of Alary Sadie. He also re
newed his offer of $50,000 for Peter
the Great. He was informed by Mr.
Stokes thnt ho had declined to con
sider an offer of $75,000 made for the
horse by the Russian government
Stuart May Stroke For Cambridge.
D. C. R. Stuart will have a chance
of stroking the Cambridge crew to vic
tory for the fifth time, including the
Harvard race. R. V. M. Arbuthuot,
the Eton freshman, has been strok
ing the crew in practice, with Stuart
rowing bow, on which side of the
boat he always strokes. Arbuthuot is
probably a prettier oarsman than
Stuart, but the latter's electrifying
methods In the early part of the race
have carried him far. His stamina
has never really been put to a test In
the annual boat race.
Princeton May Row on Schuylkill,
From an announcement made by the
board of stewards of the American
Itowlng association there will be at
least live and possibly seven crews en
tered Tin the junior collegiate race at I
the sixth anuual regatta to be held
on the Schuylkill on May 22. Entries
have been received from Cornell, Yale.
Harvard, Pennsylvania and New York
university. It also is understood that
Princeton will send two eights, this
being the first intercollegiate regatta
In which Princeton lias expressed her
Intention to compete.
Brown on Pitching.
Mordecai Brown, star pitcher of the
Chlcngo Nationals, says "It is ten times
harder to pitch easy than to pitch
hard. That's a fact," added Brown.
"Suppose you have worked vigorously
and have acquired a winning lead,
then they want you to let up nnd take
it easy. Well, it is harder to slacken
up and pitch a comparatively easy
game than to throw your arm out.
This may sound queer, but it's true."
Cornell-Harvard Freshmen Race.
All arrangements have been com
pleted for the freshman race between
Cornell and narvard, which will be
rowed on Cayuga lake on Memorial
day. This will be the first freshman
race between the institutions since
The Scot and His Game.
If the Scot who has stayed at home
cannot play the game of curling as
well as his sons who have settled in
Canada, what he lacks in skill is made
up by love of the sport. Curling is of
the Scot. It is ingrained in his nature,
deeper than his religion or his finan
cial interests. It has been known to
make a Scotsman break the Sabbath
and a dollar bill. Canadian Courier.
Ground Feed For Horses.
It seldom pays to grind corn for
horses, provided their teeth are In
first class condition. If horses are old
nnd their teeth not In the best condi
tion there would be some advantage
In grinding. It Is true that a certain
amount of the auiinnls' energy is re
quired to perfectly masticate the corn,
but the amount saved by grinding
would In many cases hardly offset the
cost. In the cape of horses which are
performing unusually hard work
through long hours a general excep
tion might be made to this rule, dun
to the fact that the animals are re
quired to eat and digest Inrger quan
tities of concentrated food in order to
perform the work nnd maintain their
weight. Some European experiment!!
have shown some advantages coming
from the grinding of corn, cob nnd all.
It is not generally considered, how
ever, to be a profitable practice to
grind corn, cob nnd nil, for horses
feeding. G. C. Wheeler, Kansas Ex
periment, Station.
Setting Turkeys.
Build a wire coop of sufficient size to
accommodate the hen. This is placed
on the ground and the turkey put in
the middle of It. On top put cednr
brush to make shade. Plenty of feed,
water and grit are given and the tur
key allowed to be alone. The coop Is
six feet on the sides and at least two
feet high. When the poults hatch the
corners of the coop nre lifted after
the dew is off and the young ones al
lowed to run. In the evening the lit
tle fellows are shut In to keep out
vermin. At first they nre fed bread
crumbs, boiled eggs and meat crum
bled together, after being mixed with
water or milk and squeezed dry. When
a mouth old they are allowed to roam
with a turkey, but encouraged to bo at
home in the evening by being fed regu
larly an hour or so before sundown.
Usually the turkey hens will not come
home of their own accord unless edu
cated in this way. M. C. Dean in Or
ange Judd Farmer.
I Corrective For Hogs.
'mere seems to ue no better way to
supply mineral matter to hogs than to
give them free access to salt, charcoal,
air slaked lime, wood ashes and bone
meal. Charcoal may be made out of
corncobs by digging a pit in the
ground with sloping sides so as to pre
vent caving, starting a fire in it nnd
then adding cobs a few at a time, let
ting the fire burn through each time.
This is continued until the pit is full,
when it may be covered with an old
barn door and the cracks scaled with
a little dirt. After twenty-four to
forty-eight hours the pit will contain
the finest grade of charcoal for pig
feeding. When pigs are fed these vn
rious mineral substances they will un
doubtedly not have such a craving for
nut coal. However, a little nut coal
in addition. If they care for It, would
not be harmful. Breeder's Gazette
Improving the Dairy Herd.
The most practical way for the
farmer to build up n dairy herd is to
buy a good dairy bred bull and cross
on the best of his common cows. This
is the cheapest way, and, In fact, the
only way. unless the farmer has the
ready money and will buy a herd of
pure bred producing cows, which in
the west cannot bo found at any price.
Contrary to the Ideas of many men,
dairy bred bulls arc much cheaper
than good dairy bred cows, and there
is no reasou why the farmer who
wants dairy blood In bis herd should
stand on the cost of a bull. Kansas
Destroying White Grubs.
Probably the most effectual check to
white grubs Is early plowing. If the
land can be winter plowed nnd again
plowed in the spring the grubs will be
greatly Injured. The application of
lime will doubtless help to destroy
them, and if early potatoes are plant
ed and the' crop harvested as soon as
possible the land may be at once fitted
and sown to alfalfa with almost cer
tainty of a good stand.
Lime For Sour Land.
Is your land sour and sodden? If it
is, remember that the antidote is lime.
Kemember also that alfalfa and clo
ver produce acidity of the soil and
that unless lime is present in consid
erable quantity, to get the best results
from leguminous crops, it must bo ap
plied inoro or less generous quan
tities. For this purpose finely ground
limestone Is of most lasting benefit

French Fluted Model That Is Easy to
The day of the glaring dropllght over'
the dining table is done; the hanging
lamp is' happily tabooed; the chande

force, but its overhead and spreading

hostess, who has become a convert to
softened colors and candle shades.

originality of design is out of the ques

perhaps an even more appropriate

their suggestion of the little fluted cov

Men Jealous of a Woman Writer.
One of the first of literary honors
has been won by a woman. It is the
Chauchard prize, given by the Soclcto
des Gems de Lettres of France, nud
Mine. Jeanne Marnl Is the winner.
There Is not a literary man in France
who is nt eager to earn this distinc
tion, and it Is not strange that there
have been many protests against the
present award. Mme. Marnl is the first
woman to carry off the prize, and her
name now Is enrolled with that of De
Maupassant. In announcing its deci
sion the committee made known It
awarded the prize upon the general
excellence of Mme. Marnl's work. The
opinion also was expressed that her
writing in nlmbst every feature wns
superior to that of all the other con
testants. This was putting the truth
rather bluntly, for "all the other con
testants" were men.
Oils For Leather.
Olive oil, cod liver oil, castor oil and
neatsfoot oil are considered to be the
very best oils for leather. Mineral
oils, however, are quite extensively
used, and we know of no reason why,
If they are free from acids and alka
lis, they should be nt all harmful to
the leather. W. D. BIgelow, Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Feeding Hens.
Don't feed all sloppy food. The hens
have been supplied with a machine for
grinding, and It should be used. Let
any member of the body stop work

to perform its duties It Is very likely

They were both guilty, but was he
so much to blamo in his passionate
lovo for this fair woman who had
turned the heads of better men than
Gordon Willis?
And Gordon Willis loved her. And
yet there was another, a dark faced,
childish, loving girl, who bore his
name and to whom bis love was due.
He had married Iva St. Clair to
please his father and keep his inher
itance. And years after, nt his father's
death, Gordon had married her, car
ing little for her, but fully aware of
the fact that she loved blin with all
tbo passion of her fervid nature.
Vivian Hope was alone nnd frleud
less in -the world when Iva Willis of
fered her n home, for they were dis
tant cousins, and Bhe gladly accepted
the generous kindness.
Gordon Willis stood before her now.
his handsome face passion stirred, his
blue eyes glowing.
The truth had broken on lva Willis
with an awful suddenness of horror.
She came forward now with a plead
ing gesture.
"I have heard all," she said, "and
Vivian, pity me. You will go nway,
Vivian, will you not go away with
your fatal beauty and leave me my
husband? 1 do not blame you. But,
Vivian, if this goes on I will die do
you hear die?"
'You talk nonsense, Iva," Bhe said.
"You can turn me away If you wish."
There was a moment's silence; then
Iva bent forward, her eyes still on
Vivian's lovely face.
"Without my husband's love 1 could
not live. I ask you to go away, and
you refuse. Kemember, I have told
you that the day my husband tells
me that for your sake he wishes me
dead I will grant his wish. But, Viv
ian. I warn you that If you ever take
my place, living or dead, I will avenge
my own wrongs."
No one knew what words took place
between Gordon Willis and his wife a
few weeks later, but every one knew
that tho cold, still form of Iva Willis
was found floating on the lake when
the evening shadows fell, her little
hands crossed on her bosom, her pns
slonatc heart at rest.
lva Willis had been dead one short
year when Gordon brought Vivian
home to reign In her stead.
They were straying up and down the
shady paths together, and Gordon's
eyes, filled with passionate tenderness,
were resting on Vivian's lovely face,
They paid no heed to where they
were straying till with a little Inward
shudder Vivian noticed they had turn
ed down the path that led to the lake
the lake where lva had ended her
passionate young life,
"What Is the matter, darling?" Gor
don asked.
"I-I feel a little chilly. Will you
go to the house and bring me a shawl,
Kissing her lightly oil the forehead
her husband turned and left her, and
she passed on and down to the lake.
She had complained of chilliness
while Gordon was with her, but as he
turned away something crept over her
that was not cold, yet left her trent
bllng. A terrible, undefined fear seem
ed creeping round her heart, nnd dark
shadows were closing over her.
Suddenly her face grew ghastly
white and all the light faded from her
lovely eyes; even her lips became pale
with the terror that swept over her.
For slowly along the edge of the lake
came a slender form in wet, trailing
garmonls, with marble face and black,
wide open, stony eyes! O God, was
it Iva Willis? Was that cold, dusky
face the one that had been raised in
piteous pleadings to her own? Were
those white lips tho same that had
parted that day In n cry of passionate
Yes, it was she. Living or dead, she
had promised to avenge herself, and
she had come.
Vivian tried to shrink back, but In
vain. Closer, still closer, came the
cold, wet form. Then two tiny hands
were out-Uietchcd as if to clasp her.
Was It i dreain, was It madness, or
was it a t Tlble reality?
Closer el the "black, staring
eyes wen- .unking Into hers, and she
could see the water dripping on the
sand, and jen
An icy chl'l swept over her, the dark
shadow ciosi'd around her, nnd Gordon
Willis, coming down the path, heard a
shriek so irrrlble In Its anguish and
horror that lis blood stopped coursing
In his veins, nnd when he reached his
darling's side he found her kneeling
on the sand, pleading wildly to some
unseen being, and out of her beautiful
eyes all light had faded save the wild
glare of insanity.
No ono ever knew nor ever will
know how It really was.
All they have for the story is the
wild ravings of Vivian herself.
God only knows whether she was
simply the victim of imagination or
that Iva had come back to avenge the
wrongs of her outraged heart, as she
Only one thing every ono agreed to,
and that was that both the brides of
Gordon Willis met strangely sad fates,
but which was the sadder none could
tell tho fate of the childish young
wife swept In dead at his feet or the
fate of the beautiful Vivian.
Her Digestion Wouldn't Work Same
Thing Happens to Humans.
Horace Fletcher of mastication fame
talked recently to tho New York
Lenguo For Political Education about
tho influence of mental states upon di
gestion nnd left some people in great
er despair than ever about the jittaln
ment of dietetic righteousness. For It
Is not enough to chew, It seems. One
must also cultivate faith, hope and
charity nnd cease to worry about one's
rent. All this has been conclusively
proved by the use of tho X ray on
cats. Pussy Is allowed to get "good
and hungry," Mr. Fletcher stated, and
then she Is permitted to cat as much
as she wants of some food that she
likes, the food being stained with a
substance which doesn't detract from
Its flavor, but which renders It opaque
to the X, rays. She is now placed be
neath the X rays, and, taking It for n
fire, she stretches herself out In great
content to digest her dinner, the course
of which can be traced through the di
gestive apparatus by its opaqueness.
Everything goes along smoothly until
tho attention of the cat Is distracted.
Then the process Is delayed, but if the
cat is annoyed and gets angry enough
to spit it stops altogether and docs not
start again until a considerable time
after tho cat has regained its compo
sure. The moral Is obvious. Avoid all per
turbations of the spirit If you want
your food to digest, even after you
have chewed It Mr. Fletcher seems
to think thnt this Is quite simple.
Hatred, Mr. Fletcher stated, is the
most fatal of all the passions, hurting
tho hater Infinitely more than the ob
ject ngalnst which It Is directed, and
millions of children, he Is convinced,
may have been killed by a sharp word
spoken to tho mother at breakfast, the
mental disturbance curdling her milk
and rendering it poisonous. But fortu
nately he does not consider It neces
sary to give oneself up to the business
nf digestion, as tho cat does under the
X rays.
"If you fletcherize," he said, "you
can do the most strenuous physical
nnd mental work Immediately nfter
Horrible Examples.
Sometimes you meet a lovely maid
Whose beauty has no taint
And get a sudden shock because
You hear her say, "I ain't!"
Chicago's earnest, motto Is
"I will!" and not "I won't!"
And yet there are Chicago Elrla
Who calmly say, "He don't."
And so It goes. In Boston, where
There's culture beyond price.
You sometimes hear tho quick remark,
"Say, he don't cut no Ice!"
There even Is a man from Maine
Who loves to chaff and quiz,
And you would be surprised to know
He often says, "They Is."

"Do you meaii to say," began the
tourist to tho villager, "that the old
man In front of that house is really
100 years old?"
"One hundred and four," corrected
the native.
"No wonder you're proud of him,"
congratulated the tourist.
"I don't know about beln' proud o'
