Funeral Plans Discussed.
Queen Alexandra and King George con
ferred with various officers of the state
and household concerning the funeral ar
rangements today, after holding service
In the royal chapel at Buckingham Pal
ace, which the late King always attended
when In residence there The date of the
burial was tentatively fixed for May 20,
although it may be May 18, the date on
which Theodore Roosevelt is scheduled
to deliver the Romanes lecture at Oxford
The members of the Royal family, it
is believed, would prefer there be no
lying In state, but it was represented
to them that the wishes of the people
were so strongly for this that they
were willing to waive their personal
King's Body Lies in Deathbed.
King Edward still lies in the bed
where he died, clothed only in his
nlghtclothes, with his hands crossed on
his breast. Alexandra visits the cham
ber frequently, appearing greatly worn
and tired. King George and Queen
Mary spent most of the day with her.
After the chapel, the family again
looked upon the body for a few min
utes. An impressive incident this afternoon
Illustrated Queen Alexandra's desire to
show consideration for British sub
jects of every class. General Booth
sent a message that the Salvation Army
wished to show honor to Edward by
holding a service before the place, and
Alexandra gave permission. At 4
o'clock a large band, wearing red jer
seys and carrying silver instruments
and banners, with scarfs of crepe,
pushed their way through the crowd to
the palace inclosure. The big iron
gates were opened and the band
formed a circle under the windows.
Salvationists Have Service.
First they knelt while the leader
prayed, and then they sang "Nearer My
God to Tliee," "Abide With Me" and
"Angels Ever Bright and Fair." Finally
they marched out, singing "Onward,
Christian Soldiers." The blinds were
closely drawn, but the attendants say
that Queen Alexandra left her apart
ments with Princess Victoria, and her
ladies in waiting and listened to the sing
ing. The crowds around the palace and
Marlborough House were undiminished
today. The streets tonight are filled, with
people, but few. Ltondon buildings have
mourning decorations. The draping of
houses will begin tomorrow.
All political discussion foreshadows a
truce in the struggle between the Com
mons and the lords. The Bishop of
Worcester, preaching in the Cathedral,
aid that patriotism and chivalry de
manded that contentious questions be put
aside by the statesmen of all parties for
a year at least.
House of Commons to Meet.
The Houye of Commons will meet on
Wednesday, when Speaker Lowther re
turns, to receive the address from the
throne. Premier Asqulth and A. J. Bal
four, leader of the opposition, will reply.
Mr. Asqulth and Reginald McKenna, first
lord of the Admiralty, embarked today
at Gibraltar on the cruiser Enchantress.
According to a circular issued from
Marlborough House tonight, the designa
tion of tlie new Queen will be Queen
The role she will play at the new
court has been the subject of consid
erable speculation. As Prince and
Princess of Wales, the new King and
Queen lived such retired lives that it
is difficult to form an opinion, but it
is almost safe to assume that the
court will be far less brilliant than
was that of King Edward. The latter
attached the fullest weight and dig
nity to the ceremonies of the kingly
office, and all state functions under
his reign were invested with the pomp
'and magnificence he considered be
fitting the court of a great empire. He
attracted to his court a brilliant array
of wealthy social figures In which
American heiresses, married to English
aristocracy, played a prominent part.
Great Changes Expected.
It is quite certain that great changes
will be seen in the constitution of tlie
Court circle. Queen Mary is credited
with great strength of character and
is likely to exert far more influence on
the Court surroundings than did
Queen Alexandra. She is deeply relig
ious and has a love for charitable work
connected with the church, while King
George, so far as is known, is more
fond of country life and pursuits than
of courtly pomp. ,

LOS ANGELES, May 8. (Special.)
W. H. Pittman, who is seeking his

who left her home here with a fortune
in jewelry and money, was greatly ex
cited last night when told that tele
graphic dispatches contained the Infor

accompanied by another man.

who know hjm say he has good cause
to lament the loss of his wife, who de

In a home just north of the works two

of a boy was cut clean from his body.
Louis McCann, a laborer, was crushed
by a falling fragment. He was Btarted
for an Ottawa hospital In an automobile,

How New Comets Are Discovered.
S. A. Mitchell, in American Review of
New comets are usually discovered
by an astronomer after careful and
diligent search with a telescope of low
power. Such a quest demands an al
most infinite . amount of patience in
nightly scanning the heavens up and
down in the hope of detecting a stran
ger in our midst. So close a watch is
kept that seldom does an intruder es
cape the eager eyes of the. sentries and
attack the citadel, as' happened with
the first comet of the year 1910. Comet
A, 1910, eluded all eyes till it became
very bright and quite close to the sun,
and an astronomer was not the first
to see it. Sometimes a comet is acci
dentally found on a photographic plate
exposed for some other purpose, such
a one being the Morehouse comet of
1908. If the comet is not a new one,
but the return of one already known,
it is possible to direct the telescope to
the point in the sky where it is expect
ed, and a long-exposure photograph
may detect it. Halley's comet was dis
covered September IX, 1909, on a photo
graph taken for the purpose by Profes
sor Max Wolf, of Germany. At the time
the comet was very faint, and looked
exactly like a very small star.
A Sermon on the Hog.
Ottawa (Kan.) Republic.
My son. consider the hog. He toils
not,, neither does he spin, but he Is
worth close to 10 cents a pound on the
hoof, and he Is getting so exclusive
that only the very best circles are able
to entertain him. He waxes fat at his
leisure, knows no labor and travels to
market in a special car. Just at first
thought the hog seems to be consider
able of a personage, but still he Is only
a hog and he really isn t worthy of
emulation. There are a good many
persons who adopt his ways, however,
and fatten on what other people have
gathered together. Their ambition
runs more to gross weight than to
quality, and like the hog they are de
spised. A hog isn't worth a thing un
til he is placed on the market. He
serves no useful purpose while he lives,
and it is only as he gathers fat that he
adds value. He is the symbol of greed
and bad manners, has a bad disposition
and Is a social outcast but he is sell
ing at nearly 10 cents a pound, and that
Is why he is sometimes emulated.
How to Be Popular.
The way to be popular has been ex
plained by one of the marshmallow
magazines which inflates' Itself with the
idea that it . is directing modern life.
"When you shake hands with a man,"
runs the recipe, "grasp the hand as
though you were glad to see the owner,
look him in the eye and give him a
smile from your heart." This is a sure
enough recipe. It has been used a mil
lion times from Alcibiades down to day
before yesterday. It Iras been worked by
some of the greatesrVfrauds in Christen
dom to subserve their own ends. The
man who is seeking popularity, posing
for it, angling for it, usually doesn't de
serve it. Keep your admiration for men
who show you their real selves, who,
when they are bothered or worried, or
mad or glad, make it manifest by appro
priate facial expression, and who are not
constantly standing themselves before
This early May Sale of Lipman-Wolfe & Company's is rightly, and always
regarded as the principal muslin underwear event in Portland. This is not due to the great magni
tude of the stock always involving thousands of pieces of fresh new garments, especially made for

The public has the positive knowledge of knowing that at least this store makes real reductions on every piece of under

Of special importance is this sale to June brides with its immense assortments of superior qualities and low prices.

DEVOTED MAN SAVES
Gotti-Casazza Nurses Woman
He Marries to Health.
COUPLE ON HONEYMOON
Wife of Operatic Manager, Who Was
Mme. Frances Alda, Says There's
More Glory In Being Success
ful Wife Than Opera Star.
NEW YORK, May 8. (Special.) Now
that Mr. Gattl-Casazza and his bride,
who was Madame Frances Alda. of the
Metropolitan Opera Company, are on
their honeymoon in Europe, many little
stories are beginning to find their way
into the ear of the general public about
the devotion of the operatic manager to
the woman whom he loved.
It wilr be remembered that just a few
weeks ago Mme. Alda was taken very
at the close of a performance one night
with appendicitis. She diagnosed the dis
ease herself, announced that she had had
It for several days, but had been hoping
to stave off the. operation she believed
Inevitable, andTthen went home to her
hotel and made ready to be operated
upon. The operation was performed next
morning, and her swift recovery was a
matter of no little comment.
Now it is learned that her fiance had
much to do with that same recovery.
Day and night during the dark hours of
uncertainty he hovered .near the room,
and as soon as he could see her, he could
hardly be dragged away from the bed
side. No grained nurse was more thought
ful and kind than he, and her own op
timism, coupled with his cheerfulness
and attention, pulled her safely through.
Now that the competition of the Man
hattan opera house is removed and the
Metropolitan has the field to Itself, Mr.
Gatti-Casazza's position becomes that "of
one of the foremost operatic managers in
the world. Jt is regarded as certain that
his wife will not return to the stage.
She, herself, does not desire it. "Homo
is more than any career could ever be,"
she says. "The glory of being a success
ful wife is more than that of being a

learning how to perform quickly and
efficiently the difficult operation which
saves a life that might have been lost
in less skilled hands.
Much of the training of the specialist
is to enable him to meet the unusual,
the unexpected demand. The surgeon
trains for the rare operation, the pos
sible emergency. He knows that there
are times when It is knowing what the
ordinary surgeon did not think it worth
while to learn that may save a life.
There are . surgeons now living who
never had a dozen emergency cases in
all their experience which called Into
play the utmost power and skill of
which they are capable, but it was
these few extremely dangerous opera
tions which gave them their great rep
utation and enabled them to get enor
It is not the good surgeon, but the
superb operator, the man who knows a
little more about anatomy, who has a
little steadier nerve, a more acute
touch, a little better education, that is
sought to perform the delicate opera
tion in the emergency, when life hangs
by a thread.
Teeth by Telegraph.
Old George Kettle rushed in the Trot
wood telegraph office the other day with
a small package wrapped In a newspaper
uuder his arm.
"Telegraph this to my wife down to
Dayton, Harvey," he said to the tele
graph clerk, thrusting the package
through the little window.
"No, no, George, we can't do anything
like that," laughed the clerk.
OPTION LAWS HIT
Illinois Prohibitionists Said to
PLATFORM IS PREPARED
If Chafln's Planks Are Adopted,
Drys Will Work to Prevent Sa
loons From Erer Returning
After Once Being Voted Out.
CHICAGO, May 8. (Special.) Opposi
tion to the local option law will be ex
pressed by the Prohibition party of Illi
nois if theplatform as tentatively drawn
by Eugene Chafln, the 1908 Presidential
candidate, is -adopted at the biennial state
convention at Decatur this week.
In addition to favoring a state-wide
prohibition law, the platform as drafted
includes an indorsement of any law which
would give citizens of a precinct, town,
city or county the right to banish saloons
for all time. After a political division
has been once voted dry, the Prohibition
ists would make it impossible to voto
back the saloons as permitted by the.
present local option law passed through,
the efforts of the Anti-Saloon League.
The plank dealing with the saloon prob
lem has been worded by Mr. Crafin as
"We declare that the liquor traffic is
not a business, it is an Indulgence. To
sell liquor Is to commit crime. We de
clare that no. legal power constitutionally
exists to fteense the liquoi traffic; we
deny the right of Congress, of the Legis
lature, or of the people of this state or
any subdivision thereof by majority vote
or otherwise to grant the privilege to any
one to engage in a crime.
"We are opposed to any so-called local
option law on the liquor question but will
stand for any law which will give to us
the right to vote the saloons out, whether
It be in the state or by counties, cities,
towns or precincts, and favor submitting
the question of a state-wide prohibition
law to a vote of the people at the coming
One plank of the proposed platform de
clares for an amendment to the Constitu
tion which will limit the service of a Gov
ernor to one term of four years; a law is
advocated also making it a felony for a
person on the Board of Trade or stock
exchange, "to sell a thing he does not
own or buy a thing not delivered to him."
The State Treasurer will report at the
convention that the sum of $133,850.10 has
been received and expended by the state
prohibition committee in the last two
Professionals in Demand.
A great many people cannot under
stand why professional experts charge
such enormous prices for their serv
ices; why an eminent surgeon, for ex
ample, should charge $5000 or even
$10,000 for a single operation, or a
great law specialist like Ellhu Root
$2500 for a few hours' work in cross
examining a witness.
They do not take into consideration
that the surgeon has spent years In
