THE CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, 51 AY 17, 1011
Their Cook Quit Her Job and a
Maid Became III
SOON AFTER THEY BOUGHT IT
Reasons For Rejecting the Gem Are
Given by the McLeans, Who Are Be
ing Sued For $180,000, the Alleged
' When the ilolio diamond, the famous
blue gem which has left a trail of mis
fortune behind It ever since It was dis
covered, was purchased recently by
Edward 13. McLean, son of John It.
McLean of Washington, fron the Car
tiers of New York nnd Paris, Mr. Mc
Lean caused to bo inserted In the pur
chasing contract a clause to the effect
that If any HI luck should befall any
of the McLean family within six
months after the date of purchase the
transaction was to be Invalidated.
Well, the 111 luck fell with a des
perate thud within two months after
he became the owner of the gem, Mr.
McLean now alleges. It is his defense
In a 'suit which has been opened by
the Cartlera to recover the 5180,000
with which he agreed tentatively to
part In exchange for the stone.
Mr. McLean declares In his defense
that the gem hardly had a chance to
twinkle a few twinks in his home
when one of the maids fell III, and
this fact was still disturbing the equa
nimity of the household when the cook,
who Mr. McLean believed ranked as
an important factor in his home, wrap
ped her duds in her best Irish linen
handkerchiefs and announced that she
would be 'afther l'avln th job."
Mr. McLean immediately shook his
Dst at the Hope diamond, charged it
with making the maid ill and driving
the cook out of the house and told the
Cartiers it had broken its contract and
that they had better come and take it
Now, the Cartiers wouldn't do any
rnich thing, although not denying that
the Illness of the maid and the seces
sion of the couk were calamitous.
What they contended was that neither
the maid nor the cook was a member
of the McLean family. Mr. McLean
tells woefully of the indigestion that
has come to him with a new cook nnd
declares tbo maid and the cook who
lert are the rooftrco and the heann
stone and the front door bell of the
Mrs. McLean, who was Miss Evelyn
Walsh, takes the same view as her
husband and quite a few other per
sons ns to the pernicious Influence that
goes with (he Hope diamond, nnd she
doesn't want It around the house.
FUNERALS TOO LUXURIOUS.
Rev. George E. Cady Says Make Cre
mation Within Reach of Poor.
The wearing of black at funerals,
expense of flowers, the luxury of being
cremated and the cost of caskets were
all commented upon before the Uni
tarian Ministers' association by the
Rev. CJeorgp E. Cady of the Pilgrim
Congregational church, Dorchester,
Ma.ss., Ju an address on the high cost
"The wearing of black at funerals
is a sign of despair, not of n Christian
home," said Dr. Cady. "If death ends
all, why", then, let us wear black.
' "As to the cost of modern funerals,
we must set against the extravagance.
The early Christian church knew noth
ing of this luxury that we see today
In the modern funeral."
After describing how much it costs
nnd how much the average undertaker
gets, figures showing the enormous
profit in the business, Dr. Cady sug
gested the siiiiervlsion of the under
taking business under municipal control

NEW PENSION SCHEME.
Woman Would Have Government Help
Widows Who Have Young Children.
Widows with children of school age
or under should be pensioned by the
government, and when the children are
of age they should be made to pay a
certain amount toward the mother's
maintenance, In the opinion of Mrs.
Frederick L. Mahn, secretary of the
Fathers and Mothers' club of Boston.
"When a child Is between eight and
fourteen years of nge he needs the
most careful attention. Character is
in the formative stage. The mother Is
constantly needed then.
"Thu average woman who loses her
husband will struggle earnestly to keep
her family together. Physical and
mental weakness Induced by such ef

failure, and the mother becomes a

state as man Is asserted by Dr. Dud
ley A. Sargent, head of the department
of physical culture at Harvard, direc
tor of the Sargent (iyninnslum For
Women, In Cambridge, and well
Vnown as a writer upon subjects per
'iilnlng to women's development.
"Woman Is nearer the savage state
ban man," says Dr. Sargent. "Her
development Is moio primitive than
man's, Just as the Indian 1 more prim
tive than the white man.
"Woman being biologically more of a
barbarian than man, she has a greater
proportion of physical endurance. She
can undergo many strains that a man
"Women accumulate pvcrgy, while
men expend it. Women have been de
veloping their muscle, while men have
been developing their brains.
"Woman Is nearer to nature. She Is
a lower type of organl-mi. lint when It
comes to a case of withstanding cold
or hunger or thirst or any physical pri
vatlon of this sort a woman can out

"It Is foolish to go on the principle,
therefore, thai women must be kepi
from all labor and all exercise and he
taken care of as though they were
pets. They should do everything pos
sible, obviously, to preserve the close
ness to nature of which I have been
speaking. It Is more necessary for the.
good of the race for women to look
after their physical well being than It
Is for men."
MAY GET MORGAN MILLIONS.
Japanese Niece Prospective Heiress as
Result of Cousin's Death.
The recent death of Ceorge II. Mor
gan, cousin of .1. Pierpont Morgan,
makes it probable that a large share
of the Morgan millions will lie enjoyed
by a Japanese woman.
The prospective heiress Is the nrlslo-
cratlc oriental beauty, Mrs. Yukl-Kate
Morgan, whom George Dalton Morgan
married In 1004 at Yokohama on his
trip around the world. George Dalton
Morgan Is the son of George II. Mor
gan, who married his cousin, .1. Pier
pont Morgan's sister.
Young Morgan is now in Japan.
There were reports one time that the
marriage did not meet the complete
approval of the elder Mr. Morgan.
Wnt littlo Mrs. VnkMCntp Morgan Is
n daughter of one of the nnest families
In Japan, ami when she arrived in this
country with her husband she charmed
In Chicago, on the trip across the
country, young Morgan had said that
he did not know exactly the opinions
of his relatives concerning his mar
riage, but that nothing could possibly
alter his devotion to his pretty spouse.
WIVES, TAKE NOTICE.
Husband May Slap You if You Search
His Pockets, Rules Court.
Judge C. M. Lee of Providence, 11.
I., tried the separation suit brought by
Elizabeth T, England against John E.
The Englands have been' married live
years. Mrs. England testllled they had
three children and had been living hap
pily until a short time ago.
One night, she said, Mr. England ar
rived home about :$ a. in. and curled
up on the floor. She thought he was
asleep and started to go through ills
pockets In search of a watch and ring
which she said belonged to her. Mr.
England woke up and gave her a slap
in the face. She tried to go through
his pockets again and testified he gave
her a kick In the back.
Judge Lie told the lawyers the cou
ple ought to become reconciled. They
said they would do what they could.
"Hut you must tell your client," ad
monished Judge Lee in addressing the
wife's lawyer, "that she must not go
through her husband's pockets again.
A man Is justified in slapping his wife
If she goes through his pockets."

More and More.
The gravedlggcr in "Harnlct" was
a voiy witty man, wittier far than
many of the epitaph makers who have
adorned headstones with their Jingles.
A sample of the punning rhymes
which are cut on tombs follows. It
comes from ttie grave of William
More, at Stepney, near London:
Were Ilea one Moro, and no more than ho.
The Moro and no more how can that be?
Why, one Moro and no moro may lie here
But here lies one More, nnd that's more
Curiosities of Etymology.
It Is extraordinary how words for
the same thing differ In even so small
a country ns England. Tnko "left
handed," for example. In Gloucester
shire such a person is described as
"scrammy," in Staffordshire ho be
comes "craggy," tho phrase for a left
handed Yorkshlreman Is "gawkrod
gcr" or "calllck handed," and in the
next county, Durham, he Is "cuddy
paw." Loudon Telegraph.

so about his business?"
