London's Latest Divorce Case
Is Enshrouded in Deep
Colonel Forbes Refuses to Live With
Actress Wife Who Yearned for
the Comforts of Home
for Many Years.
LONPON. Dec. 1. (Special.) The
heroine of the latest society divorce
case Is Lady Anjrela Forbes, sister of
the Countess of Warwick, the Duchess
of Sutherland, and Lord Rosslyn. Lady
Angela Is popular as an amateur act
ress, and is also well known in
The Edinburgh Court of Session
granted her her freedom after hearing
her story, to which her husband. Col
onel James Stewart Forbes, made no
defense. They had been married ten
years, and for four years he had re
fused to live with her.
"At first," said Lady Angela, "our
married life was fairly happy, and
then the relations between my husband
and myself became rather strained.
While in South Africa, during the war,
my husband wrote home proposing to
execute a deed of separation, and on
his return he refused to occupy the
came room with me."
"For two years we lived more or less
under the same roof, but never occu
pied the same room. Occasionally he
visited me in my Hat in London, but
always on this understanding.
"In 1003 I visited America, with my
husband's consent, and stayed with a
woman friend who had gone to live
there. On my return I cabled to my
husband to meet me at Liverpool but
this he failed to do.
"Afterwards- my husband went
abroad, but after his return to Eng
land his visits ceased altogether. Nor
could I get any effect by writing to
him. Replying to one of my letters, he
refused to come and live with me, say
ing, 'I have made up my mind not to
live under the same roof with you. But
please don't let us quarrel about it.'
"That was his position all along al
though he would not treat me as his
wife, he saw no reason for making a
public quarrel. He would give abso
lutely no reason for his conduct, al
though throughout the whole course of
the. separation I have been trying to
get him to resume our former rela
tions." The four years' desertion was suffi
cient in Scottish law to obtain a decree
of divorce, and Lady Angela was not
obliged to prove absolute infidelity on
the Colonel's part, as would be neces
sary in the English divorce court. For
this reason Lady Angela's residence
was given as Balfour, Markinch, Fife
shire, and Colonel Forbes' as'Aslown,
Aberdeenshire, although they had never
settled down at . either of Colonel
Forbes' Scottish seats, but lived - In
London and at hunting-boxes In Eng
land. Finds Race of Cave-Dwellers.
LONDON, Dec. 1. (Special.) A race
of cave-dwellers has been discovered in
the great Sahara Desert by Mr. Hans
Vischer, a British official who is mak
ing an adventurous journey across the
desert from Tripoli to Lake Chad.
The troglodytes live in the Ghartian
mountains, among Roman ruins and fig
and olive groves. Their villages con
sist of great holes in the ground, form
ing courtyards into which the dwell-
ings, barns, etc., open. The rooms are
wlndowless and very dark, but abso
lutely clean. The courtyard, which is
approached by a long narrow passage,
is protected by a wall built all round
it on the surface.
First Successful Trip Ever Made Is
Just Completed.
PARIS, Dec 1. (Special.) The first suc
cessful balloon voyage over the Alps has
been accomplished by two business men
of Milan, Slgnor Celestino Usuelli and
Signor Crespi, who are enthusiastic aero
' nauts.
The balloon Milano started from the
exposition area at Milan, filled to only
three-fifths of its capacity to allow for
expansion of the gas in rarefied air, and
carrying a very light car.
At a hight of 15.000 feet the thermom
eter registered 39 degrees of frost Fahren
heit, and the aeronauts donned heavy
gloves and covered their faces with wool
en masks. The balloon waa flying along
at an immense speed, while the rarefied
atmosphere made their hearts beat vio
lently, their pulses counted 130 a minute,
and there was an inconvenient buzzing in
their ears. To remdy this they inhaled
oxygen from their stores.
They were now over the great Apennine
range, the backbone of Italy, while ahead
of them lay the magnificent panorama of
the Alps.
Describing the scene when the balloon
was over the Monte Rosa group, at an
altitude of 21,000 feet, Slgnor Usuelli says:
"From this height we had an extraordi
nary vision of the earth's spherical form.
The curve of the horizon seemed to be
precipitated over an appalling bottomless
abyss With a slant of 45 degrees, and wo
enjoyed the illusion of a hemisphere as
seen from a sidereal vantage ground.
Flinging out sand, we found ourselves
'speding towards Mont Blanc at a fright
' ful rate. The barometer marked 21,080
feet. Our sand, being somewhat damp,
froze to hard blocks inside the sacks."
After crossing the highest peaks, the
balloon descended on French territory.
Pope Decides That Existing Vacan
cies Shall Not Be Filled.
PARIS, Dec 1. (Special.) At the con
sistory, which will be held in Rome on
December 6, it has been practically de
cided that no new cardinals will be cre
ated. There are at present 14 vacancies
in the Sacred College, so the pope's de
cision not to fill some of 'them now has
created considerable surprise.
The real reason of it is this: There are
a number of ecclesiastics who, according
to the old custom hitherto followed,
would have a kind of right to be created
cardinals. Pius X wishes to abolish all
such pretended rights he does npt want
to make any man a cardinal who has not
shown special ability and done special
service to the church. He prefers, there
fore, not to create any cardinals at ail
for the moment rather than to hurt the
sensibility of those who would be doomed
to disappointment.
Speaking this week to a prelate who is
on inttmateterms with him, the pope de
clared that he was fully resolved to re
duce the number of cardinals who live in
Rome from 30 to 18, and to increase the
number of cardinals in the rest of the
Catholic world.
The question of the cardinalate for
Archbishop Farley is only delayed. It
may be taken for certain that New York
will he specially honored In this way by
the pope in time for the .solemn conse
cration of the St. Patrick's Cathedral, in
Capital Crimes In Germany May Re
sult in Adoption of American Cars.
BERLIN, Dec. 1. (Special.) A railroad
murder of a kind impossible on an Amer
ican train has been committed on a sub
urban train near Hamburg. The mur
derer managed to kill the only other pas
senger in the little compartment in the
three minutes' interval between two sta
tions. In consequence of this crime and its ex
posure of the danger of the compartment
system, the Kaiser has suggested that
changes should be made In the Prussian
state railroads. The result may be the
introduction of the American car through
out the system.
The victim in this tragedy was a dent
ist. Dr. Clausgen, who was followed into
a second-class car by Thomas Ruecker, an
unemployed gardener. While Dr. Claus
gen was reading, Ruecker attacked him
with an ax and had killed and robbed him
before the train stopped at the next sta
tion, three minutes later.
Such crimes as these, which are becom
ing more frequent in Europe, are a pow
erful argument for making the American
kind of passenger car universal. . ; ,
Emperor AVllhelm Shoots His Game
Froin Ambush.
BERLIN. Dec. 1. (Special.) This is the
season of the Kaiser's big battues among
the game preserves of the great German
landowners. As the guest of some sport
ing nobleman. His Majesty loves to kill
as many head of game as he can with as
little trouble or real sport as he can.
His shooting methods are not like Pres.
ident Roosevelt's strenuous Adirondack
expeditions. The Kaiser sits in an am
bush, attended by three or four keepers,
who hand him loaded repeating rifles in
rapid succesion. He pots at the game as
ft is driven past him within easy range
by beaters, and his only object is to kill
as many as possible. -
Minute records are kept of the number
of birds, boars or deer shot by His Maj
esty. And the spot where he kills his
thousandth or ten thousandth pheasant
is now marked with a memorial stone in
scribed with the fact and date.
According to the court chroniclers, the
Kaiser is a perfect shot, as he ought to
be when it is all made so easy for him.
Amusing Story Is Told of a Yankee
LONDON. Dec. 1 (Special.) The
American who tried to "tip" a member of
Parliament Is the subject of "an amus
ing true story told by E. B. Barnard,
M. P.
Mr. Barnard was asked by the man
ager of his hotel to get an American
visitor into the Stcangers' Gallery. This
he was very pleased to do; but was some
what surprised when the visitor, who
did not know who his conductor was, of
fered him a sovereign. Mr. Barnard de
clined the tip. saying, "We are not al
lowed to receive gratuities," for He saw
that the American had taken him for a
minor official.
Learning afterwards who his conduc
tor was, the American carefully avoided
him in the hotel: but on going away, he
left with the manager a package con
taining a gold and turquoise scarf-pin,
for Mr. Barnard, as an acknowledgement
of his courtesy.
Elite of England Adopts a Barbarian
LONDON, Dec. 1. (Special.) Throwing
the boomerang is the latest fashionable
sport. The curious weapon of the Aus
tralian natives has been introduced in
England by Sir Ralph Payne-Gallwey, an
enthusiast in quaint weapons and an
expert with the cross-bow.
The mysterious property of the boom
erang of returning to the thrower after
striking the mark makes it a most fasci
nating plaything, and many ladies have
taken it up in preference to archery. To
learn the art of throwing the boomerang.
Lenders now roam the suburban golf
links and commons.
At a sporting goods store in the West
End boomerangs made after Sir Ralph
Payne-Gallwey's pattern may be pur
chased for a trifle over $L and during the
fortnight that the craze has lasted orders
for nearly BOO were given.
Woman at the Helm.
SYDNEY, Australia, Dec. 1. (Special.)
For 50 hours the wife of Captain Reade
of the barkentine Mary Isabel stood at
the wheel and steered the ship through
tempestuous storms and 'gigantic seas
between Mauritius and this port.
Captain Reade had discovered a plot
among the crew to seize the ship which
was bound from London to Sydney via
Algoa Bay, " Cape Colony. Owing to the
precautions he took, six of the crew
deserted at Algoa and the mate left at
Mauritius. It was Impossible to ship
a fresh crew at Algoa aa the ship was
blown, out to sea by a heavy gale and un
able to return 'owing to contrary winds.
The ship thus being shorthanded, Mrs.
Reade volunteered to assist in working
her. She took eight hour watches and
at an emergency remained at the wheel
two days and two nights continuously.
The vessel was considerably overdue
when she arrived at this port.
Pope's Physician Has Cancer.
PARIS. Dec. 1. (Special.) There la
reason to fear that Dr. Lapponi private
physician to Pope Plus X as he was for
13 years to the late Leo XIII, cannot live
much longer. He is a victim of cancer of
the stomach and the doctors have relin
guished the hope of being able to per
form an operation. Still Dr. Lapponi
continues to visit Pope Pius twice a week
officially. In fact, his assiduous atten
tion keeps alive the idea that the Pope
himself is not well. The only truth is
this, that Pius X continues to suffer from
the effects of his last attack of gout
which have not passed off as rapidly as
Russia Wants New Loan.
ST. PETERSBURG. .Dec. 1. (Special.)
Russia is seeking another loan, this
time for railway enterprise. To develop
the government railroads $400,000,000 are
necessary. An official of the ministry of
railroads says that the .negotiations with
foreign capitalists are "temporarily in
terrjjted because of the demand of the
cartr-Uists for railroad concessions which
Russia will not grant. The new loan is
undoubtedly to be used for making the
Trans-Siberian railroad a double-track

One Is Framed This Session.
ington, Dec 1. Senator Fulton will on
Monday Introduce a bill authorizing con
struction of a 18,000.000 Postoffice at Port
land; also bills for public buildings at
Albany, Oregon City, La Grande and
Pendleton, to cost $100,000 each.
If an omnibus public building bill is
framed this session. Senator Fulton hopes
to have his bills incorporated. The fact
that there is to be a River and Harbor
bill, however, -makes it improbable that
there will be legislation authorizing new
public buildings. In that event, the Port
land Posteftlce bill must wait a year.
Senator Fulton will also introduce a
bili authorizing the Columbia Valley Rail
road Company to extend itsroad across
the Fort Columbia military reservation

Washington, Dec. 1. The Navy De

special board detailed to look into the
situation at the Puget : Sound Navy
Yard with a view to determining the
line of its proper development, year by
year. In order that there may be
eventually, at that establishment, such

on the Pacific Coast.
It is pointed out in the report that
it would be of advantage to Naval in

to develop the Puget Sound plant into
a battleship yard, with facilities for
doing the largest kind of work, and
all with a view to the chance that it
may be necessary to have, convenient

"Captain von Coepenick's" Trial
Draws Crowd in Germany.
BERLIN. Dec. 1. The trial of Wilhelm
Volgt, rendered famous In Germany as
"Captain von Coepenlck," owing to his
bold robbery of the treasury of Coepenick
and the arrest of the Burgomaster of that
town October 16, with the assistance of a
number of soldiers who had been imposed
upon by Voigt, began today before a large
crowd. Application for tickets to the
court had been received from all over
Germany and even from foreign coun
tries. Much amusement was caused when nine
grenadiers. in strict military order,
marced into the room as witnesses
against the prisoner. Voigt answered the
Judge's questions unreservedly, narrating
the history of hie life without dramatic
embellishment and told a straightforward
story of the Coepenick affair in an unas
suming manner.
An interesting fact brought out was that
Voigt years ago made use of an expres
sion which led to his capture, having
remarked to a fellow prisoner while in
the penitentiary where he was tinder sen
tence: "With a few soldiers one could do a
fine job."
This prisoner, after hearing of ths
Copyright 1906 by Hart Schaffher Marx
Coepenick affair, informed the police of
Voigt'3 remarks, which fastened suspi
cion upon the latter. Voigt was sentenced
to four years' imprisonment and costs.
The indictment included four counts,
namely, aggravated forgery, publicly de
priving another of liberty, fraud and
wearing a military uniform without au
thority. ,

What Sulphur Does
For the Human Body in Health, and
The mention of sulphur will recall
to many of us the early days when
our mothers and grandmothers save us
our dally dose of sulphur and molasses
every spring and fall.
It was the universal spring and fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all,
and, mind you, this old-fahloned rem
edy was not without merit.
The idea was good, but the remedy
was crude and unpalatable, and a large
quantity had to be taken to get any
we get all the beneficial
effects of Bulphur in a palatable, con
centrated form, so that a single grain
Is far more effective than a table
spoonful, of the crude sulphur.
In recent years research and expert1
ment have proven that the best sul
phur for medicinal use is that obtained
from Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and
sold in drug stores under the name of
Stuart's Calcium Wafers. They are
small chocolate coated pellets and con
tain the active medicinal principle of
sulphur In a highly concentrated, ef
fective form.
Few people are aware of the value
of this form of sulphur in restoring
and maintaining bodily vigor and
health; sulphur acts directly on the
liver and excretory organs and purifies
and enriches the blood by the prompt
elimination of waste material.
Our grandmothers knew this when
they dosed us with sulphur and mo
lasses every spring and fall, but the
crudity and impurity of ordinary flow
ers of sulphur were often worse than
the disease, and cannot compare with
the modern concentrated preparations
of sulphur, of which Stuart's Calcium
Wafers, is undoubtedly the best and
most widely used. '
They are the natural antidote for
liver and kidney troubles and cure con
stipation and purify the blood in a
way that often surprises patient and
physician alike. i
Dr. R, M. Wilkins, while experiment
ing with sulphur remedies, soon found
that the sulphur from Calcium was
superior to any other form. He says:
"For liver, kidney and blood troubles,
especially when resulting from consti
pation or malaria, I have been sur
prised at the results obtained from
Stuart's Calcium Wafers. In patients
suffering from boils and pimples and
even deep-seated carbuncles, I have
repeatedly seen them dry up and dis
appear in four or live days, leaving the
skin clear and smooth. Although
Stuart's Calcium Wafers is a proprie
tary article and sold by druggists and
for that reason tabooed by many physi
cians, yet I know of nothing so safe
and reliable for constipation, liver and
kidney troubles and especially in all
forms, of skin diseases as this remedy.
At any rate people who are tired of
pills, cathartics and so-called blood
"purifiers" will find in Stuart's Calcium
Wafers, a far safer, more palatable and
effective preparation.
