imitations of it, and sold and suns by curbstone minstrels. In recent years, it received another
wave of popularity when introduced in the popular play " Trilby,"

Throws Washington Clubs
Into Panic by Declining
V was not enough that Woodrow
Wilson should get himself "In
bad" with tho haberdashers, real
estate agents, butchers, linkers
and candlostloUmakers of Washington
by upsetting tho plans for an inaugural
ball, out of which they expected, as
usual, to reimburse themselves with
liberal Interest for their "contributions"
to tho expenses of tho Inaugural com
mittee. Tho Washington teapot, hard
ly yet calm again after that disturb
ance, he throws It Into even a greater
tempest by declining honorary mem
bership In the Chevy Chase Country
club on the ground that public business
will absorb his time largely, to the ex
clusion of "clubblness." As a conse
quence the Columbia Country club, also
at Chevy Chase, and the Washington

Navy and Cosmos clubs, the principal
downtown clubs of Washington, were

There is hardly a literary or debating

Cannot Be Ordinary Person.
For a simple, unostentatious, red
blooded man the greatest drawback
about the presidency of tho United
States is the fact that from the mo
ment of his election until his term of
office expires, and usually long after
that, he cannot be n mere human be
ing, with the rights and immunities of
an ordinary citizen. Wherever he goes
he must be pursued by armed secret
service guards, reporters and photog-
aphers. He cannot sit down in a club
corner, stretch his legs and express
opinions upon nffalrs of the day like
other men his every chance remark is
quoted or misquoted on the street cor
ners nlrnost before he has completed it.
His trivial likes and dislikes nre known
and commented upon; he cannot move
hand or foot with the freedom that
blesses his fellow men.
Some men like this sort of thing.
Within the memory of men still living
there have been presidents one any

of life, who basked In the limelight as

Job Is Weary One.
But to the nverage man, after tho
novelty wears off, the position of "llrst
citizen of Washington," must get to be
a weary business. And If he has come
to tho White House with any notion
that ho brings with him rights of pri
vacy, tastes or personal opinions of his
own or any of the other attributes that
make life bearable for John Doe nuu
Richard Hoe, he soon finds his mistake
The curse falls likewise upon his fam
ily. The remarks attributed to Mrs
Wilson to the effect that a president's
wife could dress on $1,000 a year, set
all the Washington dinner tables a-buz-zlng.
Even the dressmaking of the presi
dent's wife and daughters Is a public
affair, and these alleged remarks
whether Mrs. Wilson really made them
or not will cause the gowns of the
Wilson family to bear an Inspection of
So, when you come to the question of
club membership. It Is In the same at
mosphere. Mr. Wilson cannot choose
the club If any to which he desires
to belong and apply for membership
like any other man; ho must take It as
a gift and In some sense an obligation
or not at all. and this episode has
shown that If he desires it not at all,
it is taken more or less as an offense.
Mr. Wilson Knows Dangers.
There Is a serious side to the ques
tion, and the consideration of it justi
fies the suspicion that Mr. Wilson has
instinctively sensed, or had some pret
ty subtle information about the real
situation in Washington, nud the diffi
culty a president has at best in keep
ing himself free of embarrassing en
tanglements. A very plauslblo argu
ment might be made against tho presi
dent's nccepting membership in any lo
cal organization in Washington.
One of tho hard things about being
president is that he can have few In
timacies. For one thing, to be the in-
.timote of the president, if the gamo is
to be played "on the level," is to nave
the door of advancement shut upon
you absolutely. Membership in a "ten

past a peculiar qualification for pro

A UTOPIA II COSTA BICA !

To establish a real Utopia in Central
America for the future homes of many
Englishmen and their families. Walter
T. Knight, a lawyer of Bacup, Lanca
shire, recently sailed for Port Limon.
This is the second trip that Mr.
Knight has made to Costa Rica. Teu
months ago, as the representative of
the SImpllcUts' Society of England,
an organization with a membership of
800, he went down to seek an ideal lo
cation for tho colony.
"We have purchased sufficient laud
to accommodate 230 families," said
Mr. Knight "I am going back to
mako preliminary arrangements, and
in Juno tho advance guard of colo
nists, Including carpenters, mechanics,
doctors and others, will arrive. By
Christmas we hope that 150 families
will bo settled."
Mr. Knight explained that while the
new colony would be founded on the
teachings of Dr. Theodore Hertzka of
Vienna nnd that the doctor's ideas hud

CHOPIN'S LAST PUPIL PLAYS.
Dr. Peru at Eighty-three Gives Con

The last surviving pupil of tho great
Chopin gave a concert recently in
Paris to save his poor belongings from
tho sheriff. His name is Dr. Peru, and
ho Is elghty-threo years old. Sixty-five
years ago ho was one of tho favorite
pupils of tho great composer.
Tho poor old man played fourteen
pieces by Chopin as tho master had
taught them to him, and tho nudlonco
was surprised and delighted with his
beautiful performance. Eighty-three

would be limited to Englishmen.
Co-operation Is Plan.
"Tho main idea is co-operation, with
the protection of idivldual rights and
liberty," Mr. Knight continued. "There
will be no Individual ownership of
laud. Farmers and workmen will
own the product of their labor and
will buy and sell among themselves in
the currency of Costa Rica.

FRAU KRUPP AIDS ARMY.
Owner of Armament Works to Pay

Tho Lokal Anzelger of Berlin printed
recently a forecast which other news
papers regarded as based on official in
formation of the extent of tho levy on
fortunes which is to go toward paying
for the $250,000,000 increase of tho
army. According to this, tho levy will
bo at rates ranging from $1 in $100 on
fortunes between $5,000 and $50,000
to $1 in $25 on fortunes of $20,000,000
