They Lead the Four Hundred In New
York, Chicago and Philadelphia.
The new Locator of the Social Reg
ister, just issued, contains an inter
esting study of names ns they arc
given In the various Four Hundreds of
the cities which have been listed. The
Locator, which covers twenty-nlue
cities, contains the names of 05,048
persons. Of these HO.TtVJ are grouped
as Mr. and Mrs. and -14,80(1 appeal' as
Iu New York's Four Hundred the
Smiths lead, there being ICO In the
aristocratic luclosure. The Browns
come next with 143, the Clarks third
with ninety-one. Although less nu
merous, the Livingstons, with Affr
eight, are still typically of the me
tropolis, there being only four Living'
Btons outside New York. Three are in
St. Paul, and one Is In Cincinnati. In
Washington the name of Davis comes
first, with twenty-threo, and the Har
risons, Parkers and Smiths are sec
ond, with twenty-two. There are tweu-y-one
Johnsons. In Philadelphia there
U'o Smiths, ninety-two Morrises
and eighty-nine Biddies.
In Chicago the Smiths are also In
the lead. There they number fifty -five
as agalust the thirty-five Adamses, the
twenty-six Walkers and the twenty
live Masons. Boston, however, might
ily reduces the general average of the
Smiths, the Locator enumerating only
five of that name who abide In the
Back Bay region of the Hub. In the
Boston list the Coolldges lead with
thirty-eight, followed by the Peabodys
and Putnams, thirty-five each. Prov-'
idence has thirty-one Aldrlches and
twenty-two Arnolds. St. Louis has
such old family names as the Ga- I
resches and Cabanucs. Cincinnati
leads witli its Andersons, St. Paul with
Hills and Minneapolis with Wash
burns. In San Francisco there are
twenty-eight Adamses, and Baltimore
ubounds in Wllliutnscs and Jenkinses.
Work of These Centers of Agricultural
In the opinion of many qualified ob
servers the agricultural experiment
stations are proving to be one of the
greatest agencies of helpfulness In
the United States. Under a law passed
nineteen years ago each of the states
and territories receives several thou
sand dollars a year from the general
government for this purpose. The
states add about half as much more
These centers of practical Investiga
tion concerning the plant and animal
life of the farm In nil its bearings are
putting numberless theories and cus
toms to u rigid test. It was the prac
tice twenty years ago to cook food
for domestic animals, but exhaustive
investigations in feeding seemed to
show that this is not profitable, and a
groat change of custom has resulted.
The Minnesotn station has accom
plished much In Improving wheat, the
Illinois station in improving the corn
yield, the Wisconsin station In the
diary and the California station in the
reclamation of alkali lands.
The experiment stations are gradu
ally correcting certain of their original
mistakes. There was a tendency at
first to a duplication of work. Each
attempted perhaps to do too many
things. Now there Is better co-ordination
through the department of agri
culture at Washington. Tho stations
also are specializing and devoting
themselves more particularly to local
Interests. Each agency has Its sphere
of Influence. It Is well to have some
men In the community set apart to
make the experimental studies for
-which the individual farmer could not
spare tho time. Millions of dollars la
tho aggregate may bo lost by a single
popular error If sufficiently widespread.
To find out what is what Is renlly tho
task stations are trying to perfnrm.

Grand Duke Michael of Russia
To Attend George's Coronation
HANI) DUKE MICHAEL of Uussla, an uncle of the czar, has been
specially Invited by King George to attend bis coronation in June, and
he and his wife, the beautiful Countess Torpy, will be highly honored
during the ceremonies. They are well known in Kngland, having lived
there for many years after their marriage while tho wife was not received by
her husband's royal relatives. As the marriage was contracted without the
consent of tho czar of Russia, Alexander III., it was "morganatic," and the
wife was not recognized In court circles. The husband and wife were happy
nevertheless, and they were close friends of tho Prince of Wales, nfterward
King Edward VII. Ho tried vainly to Induce Czar Nicholas II. to lift the ban
on Grand Duke Michael's consort. Ho could not oven Induce tho Princess of
Wales to receive her officially. The marriage of the grand duke and the
Countess Torpy was romantic and followed his rescue of her In a runaway
In Nice twenty years ago. Tho grand duke had been a gay rounder and was
then about thirty years old. lie was an ardent suitor, promised to cease sow
ing wild oats and has been a model husband. The couple have three children,
two girls and a boy.

Courage and the Flea.
Courage Is resistance to fear, mas
tery of fear, not absenco of fear. Ex
cept a creature be part coward. It ts
not a compliment to say It Is brave; It
is merely a loose misapplication of
the word. Consider the flea Incom
parably the bravest of all the crea
tures of God If Ignorance of fear were
courage. Whether you nre asleep or
awake, he will attack you, caring
nothing for the fact that in bulk and
strength you are to him as are the
massed armies of the earth to n suck
ing child. He lives both day and
night and all days and nights In the
very lap of peril and the Immediate
presence of death and yet Is no more
afraid than Is tho man who walks the
streets of a city that wns threatened
by an earthquake ten centuries be
fore. When wo speak of Cllve, Nelson
nnd Putnnm ns men who "didn't know
what fear wns" we ought always to
add the Ilea nnd put him at the bend
of the procession. Mnrk Twain.

A Cartographic Curiosity.
Catherine de' Medici once entertained
the ambition of acquiring both North
and South America as appendages to
her crowu, and with that object In
view she dispatched a couple of her
representatives to the scene- of opera
tions. The northern section' of the en
terprise was committed to the charge
of the queen's favorite, Troilus de
Mesgonez. who wns adorned with the
title of viceroy of Franco and sailed
from Havre with a large fleet, only to
be wrecked in the Atlantic. Another
favorite, Strozzl, was commissioned to
capture South America, but ire was
no more fortunate than Mesgonez, for
he was killed nt tho Azores. Those
happenings, however, took a long time
to reach the ears of Queen Catherine,
and in the meantime she nursed her
dreams and prepared a map on which
"the new world of the north" and "the
new world of the south" figured as
colonies of France. This cartographic
turloslty Is among the map treasures
f the National library In Paris.

Two Little Bills.
Robert wns in the habit of expecting
reward for every little service. At tbe
end of the week he made out a "hill"'
to his mother and carefully laid It
where her eyes would fall upon It
The Items were as follows:
"Mother Owes to Robert
"Five cents for running errands.
"Five cents for being good."
That evening there appeared beside
Robert's plate a paper upon which was
"Robert owes mother, for years of
happiness, nothing: for nursing him
through long Illnesses, nothing; for do
ing good to him, nothing."
Thoroughly ashamed of himself,
Robert rnn to mother, throw his arms
around her and sobbed:
"Mother, I will do everything I can
for you after this, atid I'll never ask
you to glvo me anything but Just
love." Omaha World-Herald.
