As Head of the Pcaco Society the

Kew York, Jan. 25. Andrew Carne
gie, who sat near President Taft nt

fortification of tho Panama canal, gave
a statement to the New York cone
cpondent of tho Central News of Lon

"No nation disputes our right to

Paleface Senators Enjoy Word Due
Between Curtis and Owen.
Washington, Jan. 25. The "Kaw

gressioual Directory is "seven-six

Many palefaces looked on with dc
light. Senator Owen is n Democni
and Senator Curtis is a Republican
Both are profoundly Interested in tii
work of the redskin, but seldom agree
as to what Is best for him.
The contest rose over a senat
amendment to tho Indian appropria

the secretary of tho treasury to py

the amendment. Senator Curtis mad

tended strongly for opposing views
but Vice President Sherman sustained
the point of order and Senator Curtl
won out.
Women on Warships.
In the British navy of Nelson's dnj
it was not uncommon for wives to live
aboard men-o'-war with their sailor
husbands. Scarce one of England':
"walls of oak" In Nelson's time but
had some woman aboard who braved
the perils and hardships of the sea ii
order to be with her husband. In
nearly every one of the twenty-seven
line of battleships under Nelson'i
command in the great battle of Traf
ulgar was one or more women, wive
of sailors. Surprise may be expressed
that English men-of-war's men wen
permitted to have their wives aboard
It was only by special permission of
the admiralty that this could bo done
and then permission was grante
somewhat In the light of a penance for
sanctioning the press gang system
which was largely in vogue at that
time. Men were seized in the street!'
and other public places and compelled
to serve In British warships because
"the king needed men." Some of th
men thus seized had political lnfluenc
and, being unjustly compelled to serv
in the navy, were permitted to hnv

The Race With the Ram.
In Morocco the strange season of the
Mohammedan new year, beginning
March 0, is generally called "Ait-el
Unnwela," tho rain feast. Tho people
of Morocco pay more elaborate attcn
tion to the Item of sacrifice than any
other Moslems. In every town a su
premc offering of a ram or he goat
takes place at the door of tho prlnct
pal mosque. Immediately after it is
struck by the official imam in pres
ence of tho multitude it is flung on the
shoulders of a stalwart Moor, who, ex
erting his utmost strength, runs like a
deer through the narrow streets, pur
sued by a rabble. Tho poor animal is
pelted with stones by boys and
jeered at with execrations from every
house, ns It is reputed to bo carrying
the sins of tho people. The man
rushes along with his burden till ho
reaches the door of the cadi's palace.
If the animal is still breathing the
augury is excellent, for good luck is
to bo expected nil through the year,
But if the ram is dead all sorts of evil
prognostications are muttered.
The One Dish Diet.
A food specialist said of dieting:
"The simplest, easiest and most elll
cacious diet to bring down the weight
is the one dish diet. At no meal, that
is, should more than one dish be
"The dish may be what you will
Irish stew, macaroni and cheese, roast
beef, vegetable soup, bacon and eggs
but no courses are to precede or fol
low it. You may eat as much as you
choose of tho dish, and yet for nil that
you will lose weight steadily.
"It's the variety of dishes the oys
ters, soup, fish, turkey, mince pie, ico
cream it's the variety of dishes, cre
ating nn artificial appetite when tho
body has really had all it requires,
that causes corpulence. If wo confino
ourselves to ono dish wo know when
we've had enough we don't know oth
erwiseand tho result is that we soon
drop down to tho sllmness natural to
children, animals and temperate and
healthy men and women."
Mounds Inflicted Ly Gelds-
borough Are Fatal.
Personal Physician of the Author Re
alized That Wounds Were Not
Healing and Calls Consultation,
but Patient Passes Away.
New York, Jan. 25. David Graham
Pliilllps, the novelist, ,who was .shut
six times Monday afternoon by Fitz
hugh Coyle Goldsborough in Gramercy
park, died at Bellevue hospital. Mr.
Phillips had been vomiting blood,
which symptom told the physicians
that the perforation in the lung caus
ed by a bullet which had entered the
right chest and had passed out of the
body near the left shoulder blade was
not healing.
It was seen that the patient, who
had been uuable to retain liquid food
or water, was sinking. Dr. Eugene
Fuller, Mr. Phillips' personal physi
cian, decided to hold a consultation
with Dr. John B. Walker and Dr. Lu
cius. Dr. Fuller in the meantime gave
the patient what relief he could, and
the physicians and tho brother and sis
ter of Mr. Phillips, Harrison Phillips
and Mrs. Carolyn Frevert, awaited the
arrival of the two visiting surgeons
for the consultation.
The excessive pain of his abdominal
wound, the constant leakage of blood
into the throat from his lung and in
testinal suffering following the admin
istcring of ether Monday had worn
the novelist out. During u severe spell
of coughing he died.
At his bedside were Mrs. Frevert
Harrison Phillips and Dr. Fuller. Dr.
Hotchklss niul Dr. Walker had not
then arrived.
The sexton of the Little Church
Around the Corner, Wiliam J. Minor,
took charge of tho remains and tool
them to his undertaking place on
Fourth avenue. Whether tho funeral
will be hold from there or where or
when the bnrlal will take place will
not be decided upon until a consulta
tion is held with Senator Beveridge
The funeral may bo delayed to permit
the dead novelist's aged mother to
make the long trip from Los Angeles.
Senator Beveridge, who roomed with
Phillips at Dopamv university, had
been at Ills bedside, but he was com
pelled to return to Washington. The
last friends of Mr. P' illips to visit the
hospital were George Horace Lorimor
and Samuel G. Blythe of the Saturday
Evening Post.
Many magazine writers, novelists
and artists left cards at the hospital,
but none of the callers except Senator
Beveridge was permitted to visit tho
patient's room. Many of the visitors
and others had sent lloral gifts, and
after the death of Mr. Phillips these
were arranged about his bier.
Elephant Humor.
The courage of a Hon at bay, great
ns it Is, is no greater than that of tho
buffalo, and he must yield his scepter
to the elephant, declares H. L. Tangyo
in his book, "In the Torrid Sudan," ns
to courage, size, strength and intolll
gence. It is a temptation to declare
that the elephant possesses a sense of
humor. A herd of elephants once fell
In with a train of donkeys. Their
attention concentrated on the load the
donkeys carried. With all the mischief
of monkeys, tho loads wore torn
asunder and their contents distributed
over half tho province. At Bor, on
tho Mountain Nile, tho elephants were
at one time full of practical jokes,
Passing at night time through the vil
lage, they would knock tho sleeper
up by demolishing their huts above
their heads, then contentedly march
Beauty and the Beast.
A well known churchman was visit
ing Kew York, accompanied by his
wife, who is as beautiful as her life
mate is homely. They were walking
down Broadway ono nftemoon, and
the pair attracted much attention,
One of two young "sports," evidently
thinking to attract tho favorable at
tentlon of tho churchman's wife, in an
audible aside remarked that It was
another case of "the beauty and tho
beast." Quick as n wink tho husband
turned and, ns ho swuug his right to
the speaker's jaw, scoring a knockout
said, "I nm n man of peace, but I nev
or allow any ono to call my wife
Solitude is dangerous to reason with
out being favorable to virtue. Pleas
ures of some sort are necessary to the
intellectual as to tho corporal health
and those who resist gayety will be
likely for the most part to fall a sac
rifice to appetite, for the solicitations
of senso nre always at hand, nnd a
dram to a vacant and solitary person
is a speedy nnd seducing relief. Re
member that tho solitary person is cer
tainly luxurious, probably supersti
tious and possibly mad. The mind
stagnates for want of employment and
Is extinguished, like n candle in foul
air. Johnson.
Rastus and His Razzer.
"You are chnrged with carrying a
razor," said tho magistrate. "What
have you to say?"
"But lilt's a safety razzer," pleaded
"What difference does that make?"
tho court asked.
"Well, yo bono,' a safety razzer am
carried only fo' do moral effect."
Ex-Secretary Says In Ability It Ranks
Second In tho World.
Now York, Jan. 25. Victor T. Slot-
calfe, ex-secretary of the navy, under
whoso supervision tho American tleet
made its first European cruise and
who was sponsor for tho recent Im
provements in the navy, Is spending
a few weeks here. Ill health compell
ed tho retirement of Mr. Metcalfe
two years ngo, and he is now living
at Oakland, Cal., where he is vice
president and general manager of the
Union Savings hank. His health has
improved so much that he Is thinking
of resuming tho practlco of law.
Mr. Metcalfe says ho still keeps In
touch with what is doing in the navy.
"Tho paramount idea of the depart
ment when I was in charge of It was
to increase the efficiency of tills arm
of our service," ho said, "aud tills idea
being steadily kept in view now.
And It is a fact that in efficiency our
navy ranks second In the world now
and ship for ship is first. The British
Dreadnought could only bring six of
her ten big guns to bear on a broad
side, while either our South Carolina
or our Michigan could train all of her
eight guns of the same caliber on an
enemy. Our aim Is to build our ships
a little more efficient than the newest
ones of other nations."
Gives Second Reception of Season at
White House.
Washington, Jun. 25. President and
Mrs. Tuft gave the second reception of
the season at the White House in hon
or of the judiciary. Members of the
United States supreme court and of
the other courts in the District of Co
lumbia, officials from the department
of justice and members of congress
who ure on judiciary committees of
the house aud senate were the presl
dent's guests.
As at former receptions given by the
Tafts, the guest list was somewhat
restricted, and the crush was not so
,'reat as It was in the days of Pros!
dent Roosevelt.
A Middletown Girl Missing.
Middletown, N. Y Jan. 25. Mary
Porrego, a sixteen-year-old Italian girl,
daughter of Thomas Porrego, has been
missing from her horue for four days,
and tho police of several cities have
been asked to look for her. She left
home Saturday, and the last seen of
tier was at the Erie station here. It
ju believed she has been lured away
by a young man from New York and
is at present being hidden in that city.
Her father has gone to New York to
nsk the police to look for her.
Nevada Returns Nixon to Senate.
Iteno, Nov., Jan. 25. By a leglsla
hire Democratic on joiut ballot by
four votes, George S. Nixon, Repub
Iican, was elected to succeed himself
as senator from Nevada.
A Mean Advantage.
In a breach of promise caso the bar
ristcr who held the brief for Injured
beauty arranged that his fair client
should be so placed that her charms
should be well under the observation
of tho jury. He began a most pathetic
appeal by directing their uttention to
her beauty and calling for justice upon
the head of him who could wound the
heart and betray the confidence of one
so fair, concluding with a peroration
of such pathos as to melt the court
to tears. Tho counsel for tho de
fendant then rose, and after paying
the lady tho compliment of admitting
that it was impossible not to assent
to tho encomiums lavished upon he
face he added that nevertheless he
felt bound to nsk the jury not to for
get that she wore a wooden leg. Then
ho sat down. The important fact o
which tho fair plaintiff's counsel was
unaware was presently established
and the jury, feeling rather sheepish
at' their tears, assessed damages at
the smallest amount
The American Baby.
The American baby has a fine,
Btrong nncestry. The young men of
England who were impntient of reli

the pick of northern Europe, the
strong, the fair, the self reliant, the
conscientious English nt bottom, but
with a dash of the best blood of other
races this is the American baby, and
no king and no lord ever had a better

Medicine Free In Every Case Where It
Fails to Relieve.
Neglect or pessimism, we believe, is
the greatest enemy the public has to
contend with wheu applied to the loss
or recovery of health. Practically ev
ery case of consumption might have
been cured if hope had been main
tained and proper treatment had been
resorted to nt the first symptom of the
disease. Until the advanced stage ti
reached consumption is curable. Ca
tarrh is responsible, wo believe, for
many cases of consumption. It is
about catarrh we want to talk to you
today, incidentally consumption, since
the two are so closely allied.
We have a medicine mado from a

cessful catarrh specialists known. We

are right, that wo will supply tho

ticular. We want every one to try

remedy that goes direct to the scat of

dition of health and strength that

sumption from getting a start. Be
sides this, Rexall Mucu-Tone is a. won
derful appetizer, digestive aid and
