Mohammed Ali, Is Only j Called King of Kings and
Twelve Years Old. j ' Shadow of God. -
HE newly 'proclaimed shah of
Persia, Ahmed Mirza, who is
JjL twelve years old, is the di
" , rect successor to his father,
although he is but a second son.' His
mother was a princess of the Kajar
blood, to which the reigning house of
Persia belongs, and this circumstance
alone qualified him for the succession
to the throne. His elder brother, a
son by a wife not of the royal blood,
is excluded from all right to ascend
the throne of Persia. Altboueh this

that was already venerable in the time
of Cyrus and Xerxes and runs back
in its antiquity o the earlier periods
of the Old Testament
Possessor of Many Titles.
Many are the other titles . of the
shah; many of them are even more
splendid than the oldest of all of them.
He is ZiT Allah, the shadow of God;
likewise Kibleh Alum, the center of
the universe. Among the other - su

AHMED MIRZA, THE NEW ?!SHAH OF PERSIA.
rule is usually strictly enforced, it was
disregarded in the succession of the
Shan Mohammed Ali, recently deposed,
He ascended, succeeding his father,
although not of the royal blood on
his mother's side and indeed to the
exclusion of higher born half brothers.
There are three brothers and several
sisters. The royal family is very nu
merous, there being several thousand
princes and princesses. , -, .
Zing of Kings.
The station of shah is, both in its.
traditions and in the oriental splendor
of its titles, one of the most magnifi
cent in the -world of royalties. The
title of shah-in-shah, king of kings, is

A Divided Dominion.
The new shah inherits a dominion
that is largely fallen into the hands
of strangers. English and Russians
nave divided the Persian territory into
spheres of influence. Russian troops
are now, with British consent, in oc
cupation of a large part of the Per.
sian territory. Another portion in
the district around the westerly city

PREDICTION OF WORLD FIGHT
Jerseyman Invents Machine to
Ennui of Summer Boarders. ..
Lemuel Starkweather, who conducts
a summer boarding house in North
Caldwell, N. J., "has solved the prob
lem of keeping his lawn trimmed, and
entertaining the summer sojourners
by perfecting a combination . lawn
mower and music box. : - "
The story of the invention came out
when the owner took the machine to
a blacksmith shop to have It sharp
ened for the third time in two weeks. '
Up to a few weeks ago the Stark
weather lawn was unkempt, and the
boarders suffered from ennui in the
quiet evenings, asvthe only music the
house afforded was. from a parlor or-.
gan. V ." .
Mr. Starkweather, who is ingenious,
adapted the mechanism of a music
box to the lawn mower, and the men
boarders as well as two women vis
itors became eager to take turns at
running the contrivance up and down
the lawn in the cool, of the evening. .
The neighbors soon learned of the
harmonious lawn mower and wanted
to borrow it. The demand became so
great that Mr. Starkweather says he
now charges a fee for its use. . With
the money thus derived he expects to
purchase several new records that
will bring the machine up to date in
a musical way. . ''
Arithmetic For Girls on Farms.
Miss Jessie Field of Page county, TSL,
had arranged an arithmetic which, she
says, will meet every requirement of
girls who expect to pass their lives on
farms. She also believes the arith
metic will eommend itself to the ma
jority . of young women in cities. It
has no cube root or .binomial theorem
In it and has been simplified in other
ways. Miss Field says that observa
tion has convinced her that the femi
nine mind is not especially adapted for
tackling the complicated problems of
mathematics, and for that reason she
expects her new work to win a popu
larity all its own.

Private Ownership of Land Will Make
Trouble, Says Single Taxer.
Henry George, Jr., who recently ar
rived at. London from a trip around the
world, said that this tour had showed
him that the question of land values
was the greatesf'flght of modern times.
It meant progress or ruin. It was the
world's cause today. '
Japan wanted money for her armies
and ships, but Japan was poor" and
could no longer bear taxation. There
would soon be a break in Japan un
less a remedy was found for the bur
dens of the poor, whose poverty was
worse than anything under feudalism.

piling np misery, as it is also doing in
the cities of England and America.
As for America, he said, the state of
the poor is getting worse. In 'the past
they had spilled their blood and spent
their treasure to outroot slavery. .To
day they had a slavery more subtle,
more intrenched, more internecine. I5nt
the United 'States was a republic of
convulsions, and when the time came
they would throw out the causes of
poverty at whatever cost.
