NAT C. GOODWIN.
I.os Angeles, Cnl. Nnt C. Goodwin,
comedian, mining promoter, world
traveller and married man. has turned
author. While spending the season
here he has written a hook.
The introductory chapter deals with,
the surroundings of his present homo.
Here is a sample paragraph from tho
"Here 1 am confronted by the sea.
Back of nie are the roses and on either
Bide of the blue-brown mountains hold
converse with the sun and stars and
dipping their august heads In silent
acqulesence of the eternal greatness."
Going fcome, oh. as a handy llttlo
describer of the beauties of nature?
But .Mr. Goodwin's book Is not a book
on landscape gardening or the care of
lawns. He calls it "Why Four Beauti
ful Women Married Me."
Their Respective Qualities.
It takes him a good many thousand
words -to explain why four beautiful
women did marry him. but, summing
up his conclusions in his foreword, ho
puts it thus:
"Eliza Weathcrsby married me for
"Mrs. Nella Baker Peaee to get out
of the vortex of society into the artis
tic life of Bohemia.
"Maxlne Elliott was prompted by.
"Edna Goodrich well, because I
didn't bore her."
Tribute to No. 1.
In his domestic retrospections Mr.
Goodwin takes up his wives In their
proper order. To No. 1 he devotes
considerable space. Here is one para
graph embodying a tribute to liltza
Weathersby. tho young English ac
tress, who became his bride In 1877:
"She was one of the most beautiful
women I ever knew and one of the
most self sacrificing wives that ever
blessed man with her devotion and
love. Now she is at Woodlawn and the
daisies grow over her grave."
Wife No. 2 doesn't fare so well, as
witness the following:
"Boor thing! She abandoned tho
glitter and glare of the world of fash
Ion to seek refuge In n bosom of Bo
hemia. She extricated herself from
the vortex of society to get a glimpse
of life real life. The pet of drawing
rooms, she became the wife of a come
dian She sought the atmosphere of
Henri Murger, but found it not."
No. 3 a Joan of Arc.
"Hers was the ambition of a Cleo
patra. She used my nnatomy as n lad
der to reach her goal, and found her
crowning glory In the blinding glare
of a myriad incandescent lights that
spelled her uame over tho portals of a
New York theatre. She was one of
the cleverest women I ever mot. Her
dignity was that of a Joan of Arc; her
demeanor, Noro-ltke In its assertive
qualities and yet with channels of
emotion that manifested womanhood
in the truest sense of the word."
Tho chapter which deals with wife

admits that he Is thinking up all man

The hook is studded with epigrams
of Mr. Goodwin's own coinage. This is
"No self-respecting American citi
zen should take advantage of the un
written law. If a man steals your
wife don't kill him, caution him."
When complimented upon his protty
home on the seashore and upon tho
'Ideal life resulting therefrom, Mr.
Goodwin said: "I have always been
long In the mnrket on homes and
wife. I believe no home Is complete
without a wife, provided she Is tha
kind that will enjoy the company of
Intelligent, honest and clever people.

Prof. Schmidt Declares That the Anci

Ithaca, N. Y. The current Idea
that there Is a Jewish race Is erron

Cornell University, a teacher in Orien
tal history nnd Semitic Inngunges dis
cussing the qnestlon of whether tho
modern Jew Is descended from n dis
tinct nnd separate family. "The Mod
ern Jew," ho declared, "Is. not de
scended from the nncicnt Hebrew, and
cannot ho r.'iown to have been so In
history. There are no common physi
cal or linguistic characteristics."
Continuing, ho says: "There Is an
impression that there Is a Jewish raco

HYENA FOILED BY LION.
K.ng of Beasts Upsets Cage on Beast
That Menaced Keeper.
Oxford, Pa. Attacked from behind
by a hyena, which had escaped from,
his temporary cage, Capt. Snider, an
animal trainer with Wheeler's circus,
wns rescued in a most peculiar man
ner by a Hon.
Capt. Snider was eating breakfast
when the hyena sprang upon hlra, 1
knocking him down. As he went down
the trainer had tho presence of mind
to lie perfectly still. !
Ho lay this way for about five min
utes, when help came from .a most un-,
expected quarter. j
The big Hon that was caged close
by, although supposedly untamable,
having a record of killing two keepers
and seriously injuring two others, had
taken a decided fancy to Capt. Snider.
This animal had seen the attack by
the hyena and tried to get out of tho
cage which imprisoned him. This was
Impossible, but he did the only remain- (
lng thing to rescuo his keeper. Crouch
ing in one corner of the cage, he
sprang with terrific force to tho other
side, upsetting the heavy cage upon I

DEVICE FOR EMPTYING TUB.
Makes Unnecessary the Carrying of
Water to Sink by Pailful.
Tho lifting of tho tubful of water is
often a physical Impossibility, and tho
carrying of the wnter from tho tub to
the sink by the pailful Is a ttrosomo
tnsk. If the house be provided with
running water at the sink, a very sim
ple contrlvanco may be devised for
utilizing tho city water pressure for
tho emptying of the tub. By providing

out of the tub Into tho sink, even
though the lntter be at a higher elc
vntlon. In the accompanying sketch,
there Is shown n simple contrivance
of this character, in which the ejector
Handy Method of Emptying a TuH.
Is formed of a block of wood adapted
to be detachably secured to the faucet.
The ejector Includes two passages In
tersecting at an angle and having a
common outlet as shown in section in
Fig. 2. One of these passages re
ceives a stream of water under pres
sure from the faucet, and the escape
of this water from the lower end of
the ejector tends to draw water out
of the tub through the ho3e and to de
liver the latter' to the sink.
The same device may be used for
refilling the tub. To secure this ob
ject, it Is merely necessary to close
the lower end of tho ejector with a
plug or In any other suitable manner.
As shown, a Short rubber plug Is con
nected to a strap tacked to one side
of 'he block. By inserting the plub
within the open lower end of the pas
sage and securing the free end of tho
strap to a button on the opposite Fide
of the block, as shown In dotted lines,
the water will be caused to flow from
the faucet down through one passago
and up through the other to the hoso
and thence to the wathtub.
Some Catsup Ways.
In making catsup of tomatoes, use
as little spices as possible, especiallly
those that darken the color, such as
cloves and allspice. A writer in Farm
and Fireside gives the following way
to make red catsup: Get a common
soap-shaker, to be had for ten cents
at the department stores, and put
your whole spices In this, and drop it
Into the boiling catsup. The perfora
tions are small enough to retain tho
spices, but allow their strength to
pass to the catsup. It Is said the red
color will be preserved.
Another way to make the catsup is
to boil the tomatoes until soft, with
slices of onions and salt, to tste, then
rub through n sieve to remove the
skins and seeds, and boll down until
thick. Boll up the vinegar once, with
sugar and ground cinnamon to taste,
mix with the thickened tomato pulp
and seal up In small bottles while boil
