Thais Iawton, who plavi the Im
portant role of Florence Knight with
Chan x Rtchmaa in "The Reveller,"
mipposedlj- made her first appearance
on Broalwav when the play opened up
at the Maxlne Klllott Theater. As a
matter of fact Miss Iawton had played
In New York once before, but not on
the Great While Way. 8he was with
Henry Miller a year afro at the Grand
Opera-house as Ruth Jordan In "The
Great Divide," when she assumed the.
character originated by Margaret
Angrlin. Miss Lawton was born In
Iuisville. Ky., and was "never an
amateur." She Joined a local profes
sional company when fresh from
school. She was the leadlnK woman
for Fred Beiasco's Alcazar Theater In
San Francisco. loiter she was leading
woman at the Castle Square Theater,
Boston, while that house was under
the management of Winthrop Ames,
now director of the New Thaler.
Mrs. Sophia M. I.oehlnger is one of
the most active of the militant suf-frag-ettes.
She has held a ftreat many
pubMc meeting in different parts of
New York, beginning as far south as
Wall street, where she was received
with cat calls and showered with
ticker tape by the brokers. . She has
recently expressed great scorn for one
of her sruild who refused to hold a
meeting on the ground that only two
or three speakers were present.
Miss Annie S. Peck and the William
Hunter Work roans are in opposition in
the matter of mountain climbing, because
Mrs. Workman, when she came back
from abroad, gave an Interview contain
ing some sneering remarks concerning
Miss Peck's work as a mountain-climber.
Mrs. Workman, who is very wealthy and
able to travel solely for amusement, made
a number of sneering allusions to Miss
Peck's expedition, which were In grossly
bad taste from the viewpoint of those
who have known Miss Peck for a great
many years and know the difficulties she
has had in undertaking each expedition.
Each year that Mies Peck has gone
South to conquer Mount Hauscaran she
has started with a capital which was so
small that few men would have under
taken the Journey without a better pro
vision. Mrs. Workman also sneered at
Miss Peck's trousers, as though they
were something adopted for spectacular
effect, whereas all mountain-climbers
know that It Is the ordinary thing for
women climbing mountains to wear a
district climbing costume of which one
feature Is a pair of trousers. 0ven ama
teurs do this. These criticisms come wltl
a very bad grace from the Workmans,
since they have been claiming for years
that Dr. Workman had achieved the
world's record In his aacent of 23. 3M feet.
In fact, W. W. Graham reached the sum
mit of Kabru In the Himalyas In 1S83
with two good Swiss guides. Kabru was
undoubtedly more than 24,000 feet. Dr.
Workman's record did not reach that of
Graham's best, but he based his claim
to the world's record on the doubt that
bad been raised concerning Graham's
statements. ' Because Graham claimed
that he had not been troubled with moun
tain sickness by climbing to this height,
his report was discredited. In point of
fact, the ascent of Kabru has since
been made by two Norwegians, and
neither of them was troubled with moun
tain sickness. So Dr. Workman's record
is undoubtedly less than that of Graham's
and it has since been beaten by the two
Norwegians who made the same ascent
that Graham made. Miss Peck's scien
tific observations as to the height of
Huascaran have been questioned. On ac
count of the high wind and the lateness
of the hour when she reached the sum
mit she waa unable to make observations
there, but her observations at the saddle
between the two penks taken In connec
tion with simultaneous observations made
at the base gave the .height of the saddle
at 19.600 feet.
NEW JERSEY PLANS TREMENDOUS FAIR
TO ECLIPSE EVERYTHING HERETOFORE
World's Exhibition in 1914 Will Be Success, if Only Mosquitoes Let It Alone Mysterious "King of the Desert"
Plays Wall Street and Wins Necktie Strike Brings Employers to Terms, but Pie
Strike Makes New York Very Unhappy.
BT L.IX5 YD F. LONEROAN. v
NEW YORK. Oct. 2J. (Special.) New
Jersey, envious because of the
crowds of misguided persons who
came here to the Hudson-Fulton celebra
tion. Is planning a "Monster World's
Fair," to be held in Newark during the
Spring of 1914.
The plan, as outlined by a Newark
paper, provides for the following attrac
tions: "The greatest World's Fair In history,
to be held on the New Jersey meadows.
"A Peace Exposition, commemorative
of the centennial of the signing of the
' treaties of Ghent and Paris.
"A great central Temple of Peace,
where an International Congress may
"Vti surpassed creations In permanent
and temporary buildings, where the na
tions of the earth will exhibit their won
ders. "The navies of the United States and
foreign countries at anchor In New York
and Newark Bays."
The promoters of this new affair are
confident they will be able to secure a
whopping big appropriation from Con
gress, which usually Is an easy mark.
Governor Fort and United States Senator
Brlggs have already gone on record as
favoring the plan and It is safe to assume
that the entire delegation at Washington
will be screaming for funds, by the time
Congress meets this Winter. It Is always
easy to be generous with other people's
money, and Uncle Same Is notoriously
They are booming the affair as a "fit
ting celebration of the end of the reign
of blood." Which would be much more
Impressive, were the famous Jersey mos
quitoes exterminated. But as they are
still working at express speed, the pro
posed Jollification might develop Into a
new "reign of blood." although It would
hardly be safe to say so to our little
brothers who live across the North River.
For they are mighty 'touchy about that
boring mosquito question.
"Kins; of the Desert" Is Here.
Jacques Lebaudy. the self-crowned
"Emperor of the Sahara." has been a
bright and Interesting figure In Wall
street of late. This young man arrived
from France some 1 months ago and at
tracted attention with his wonderful
stories of being the legal ruler of the
Great Desert. His father was the "Sugar
King" of France, and it is an established
fact that the young man Inherited some
thing like Sl.000.00n. After he dropped out
of sight, the general Impression was that
the odd monarch had blown In all his
wealth, trying to discover the rules and
regulations of the Tenderloin. So his re
appearance in our midst waa somewhat
of a surprise.
It seems that "Emperor Iebaudy" has
been operating in Wall street, and he
rays he is already S2,0"0 ahead of the
game. in explaining his success, be
makes one statement that sounds reason
able. "I always buy my stock outright," he
declares. "I would be a fool to do any
thing else. Immediately I bought on
margin the secret would be out, and the
sharks In Wall street, knowing that a
young Frenchman with a million, was
operating In certain securities, would
trim me properly, and don't you forget It.
You see that I know the game."
Lebaudy is more or less of a man of
mystery these days, and his present
abode. Is not known. Even his' brokers
communicate with him through a lock
box In the postofflce. When It Is neces
sary for men of law to meet, him, Le
baudy usually fixes the appointment for
midnight, near the Museum of Natural
History, Just outside Central Park.
The man's last known place of abode
In thl city was the Hotel Astor. He re
moved there from the Belmont, and in
each case flitted as soon as his residence
was made known. Why this is so. Is an
other of the mysteries that envelope the
Bellboys at the Hotel Savoy speak of
Lebaudy as the meanest man that they
ever met. While he was a guest there, he
called the entire crew Into his room one
day and displayed S3000 In S20 gold pieces.
Then he asked each boy for his number,
and proceeded to arrange neat piles of
coins, the number of coins corresponding
with the number on the badge. After he
had raised their expectations to the high
est point (particularly bell hop 2), Le
baudy gruffly told them all to clear out,
and not one of them got a cent while he
remained In the hotel. But it is needless
to say he moved In a very few days.
There are some things that a man cannot
do In New York and be happy thereafter,
and this was one of them.
Xecktle Strike Success.
We have been enjoying, or rather en
during two most interesting strikes of
late, a necktie strike and a rebellion engi
neered by the plemakers. The former af
fair was particularly noteworthy because
It was not attended by violence: It was
engineered by a woman, and it ended in a
triumph for the workers.
Lillian Phaser ran the fight of MOO girls
for shorter hours and more pas- She
has given out a statement which can be
studied with interest by other rebels. This
Is a part of it:
"Here Is the secret of our success, and
It Is very simple. Don't strike when the
bosses want you to. but wait for the busy
season. That is what we did, and you can
see where we came out.
"During the Summer the bosses were
Just aching for us to strike. They knew
trouble had to come, and would rather
have It when the season was slack. It
would have meant money for them. But
we were too bright this time. We put up
with all kinds of petty annoyances, al
though I certainly had hard work keeping
some of the girls In line.
"Then the rush season struck us. and
we walked out. Our employers, when we
departed, almost beggtd us on their knees
to come back. They were willing to
grant anything we asked, and every one
of them has since done so. Furthermore,
we compelled them all to sign a bond,
ranging from S350 to $700, according to the
number of girls they employ, for the hon
est fulfillment of their promises.
"These stories that we had persuasion
committees who went around and pulled
the hair of scabs are not true in any way.
We won In a walk, and the result' was
never in doubt. So why was it necessary
for us to resort to any deeds of violence?
"Really It has been such a lovely strike
that I am sorry that it Is all over. But I
think that the trouble In our trade has
been settled for a good many years to
Pie Strike Harrowing.
The "pie strike" Is much more harrow
ing, especially If you like pie. All the
union bakers went out? asking for SI a
week more pay, and they have put the
city to the bad. The pie "like mother
used to make" Is much in demand, and
all over our great city mothers who
thought their pie-baking days were fin
ished have been pressed Into service, and
their culinary exploits have made thou
sands of homes happy.
Even in the prisons the strike has
caused bitter waitings. Chef Lowensteln,
of the Tombs, for example, is quoted as
"It is a strange thing, but It is the
truth prisoners here would sooner eat
pie than break Jail. With pie they are
content; without it. they are restless. Or
dinarily, we get 300 pies daily. Since the
strike, our supply is limited."
Candidates for public office are given
warning. Any one caught eating non
union pie will be boycotted, and. if possi
ble, defeated. For political pies must
bear the union label.
Kittens Bora in $50. Hat.
Mrs. Emma Oest. of Brooklyn, crossed
the ocean the other day and among
her belongings was a S50 Paris hat.
It was an attractive creation' and the
ship's cat selected It as the first cradle
of her eight cute little kittens.
Mrs. Oest wept, the purser swore,
and the other passengers on the North
German Lloyd liner Berlin laughed.
Later on the mother cat, eight kittens
and a Parisian hat were thrown over
board near the banks of Newfoundland.
The company paid up the S50, but Mrs.
Oest still mourns her hat.
John T. Brady, once of the New York
"Giants," has found that you cannot
compel the public to patronize a base
ball series in which they are not inter
ested. The Gotham fans were anxious
to see the Giants llne up against the
"Highlanders," but BruBh vetoed 1L He
arranged, however, for a series of
games with the Boston American
League team, and It was the frostiest
frost on record. The gate receipts for
the entire series netted the Giants SI23
apiece, while the Boston players, who
won four games of five, got less than
$200 each. On the final day an en
thusiastic crowd of 127 fans appeared
at the Polo Grounds, which has seat
ing accommodations for 30,000. Can
you imagine how lonesome the gallant
From a financial point of view. It
was a good thing the series ended as it
did, for the club-owners couldn't af
ford to pay any more railroad fares.
Frank Bancroft, of the Giants, when
asked "For what Is this series being
played for?" made a hit when he re
plied, "For the benefit of the New York.
New Haven &"Hartford Railroad," that
being the only steam carllne between
New Tork and Boston.
Another Hotel to Go.
, Another of New York's old hotels will
I pass Into history early next year. The
Gilsey House property at Broadway and
Twenty-ninth street has been sold for
SI. 600.000. snd the new owner will erect a
' 20-story office building on the plot, at an
I additional ccst of li.25n.nnn.
The old Gilsey House was erected In
3870. It Is an interesting fact that the
land, which "ts now worth Sl.500.000. was
at that time purchased for S-TnO.OOO. James
H. Breslln was manager of the house for
a time, but when the hotel center began
to move northward, he suffered financial
losses. Of late years the Gilsey has been
losing money, and last December it whs
badly damaged by fire. A corporation
composed of the Gilsey heirs has been
running the place of late.
One by one, the down-town hotels are
passing away. At the present moment
there are practically none below the Wal
dorf, on Fifth avenue, and Forty-second
street, on Broadway. To see how styles
cnange, It need only be mentioned that
the Gilsey was an "old house," although
its life was only 38 years.
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, In a
chapter on abandoned farms, gives an In
teresting story of the vicissitudes of rural
life in the State of New York. 1
New York In 1860 led the Union with
170,621 farms. In 1900 It was one of 15
states, with Texas at the head of the list,
containing more than 200.000 farms. Nev
ertheless, since 1890. New York has been
in the little group with Maine, Vermont
and Pennsylvania, which shows decreases
In the area of Improved land. The falling
of this commonwealth In the respect of
its agricultural standing and activity Is
out of gear with the energy which keeps
it ahead of all other states In most of the
particulars which are covered by the cen
A great point Is that New York does
not raise, as It might, even the sup
plies for which its own swelling popu
lation furnishes a constantly Increasing
demand. One understands why , the
wheat and corn belts with their tre
mendous field expanse have taken away
the Inducement to raise grain. But
that we should have been obliged to
bring In 8.000,000 bushels of potatoes
from outside sources, ae we did last
year, as Secretary Wilson says, a fact
that should not he.
The soils of the state are not ex
hausted. Our farmers have not failed
to provide themselves with modern ma
chinery. Growing markets are ready
and new seeds multiply. Yet each year
the state of New York becomes lesB
and less self-supplying In the matter
of food supplies.
They have night classes in the Stuy
vesant High School, and that Institu
tion broke Into the police news with
great violence the other evening.
It seems that Pupil Joseph Lanerl,
24 years old. remarked that Judge
Gaynor was a crook, whereupon Pupil
Owen Bowes, 23 years old, said that
Hearst was a scoundrel. Pupil Laneri
retorted with an Ink well, and Pupil
Bowes responded with a chair. Then
they grabbed each other and rolled and
rolled and rolled all over the floor,
biting and striking. Teacher John Sul
livan, aided by some of the older
scholars, Interfered, and It was soon
a dandy free-for-all fight. Somebody
sent In a call for the reserves, and a
platoon of police came and lustily
clubbed everyone In sight. Then they
loaded the school Into patrol wagons i
and took It to the Night Court, where
the original trouble-makers were sceld
ed and fined.
buch are the troubles that beset one

education in a great city. How would

From the case of Herman Palmer,
alias "Dutch" Smith, it appears that
the police have the right to issue de
crees of banishment. Palmer and one
Tim Hogan were released from Sing

up at the Grand Central Station. They
were taken to Mulberry street, where
detectives looked them over and then

Palmer made a pitiful plea to In
"I want to reform." he said. "I'm not
young any longer and this safe-breaking
and holdup thing well, 1'ir tired
of It, and I want to be decent. Won't
you give me a chance and not send
me outi of town, as I understand you
are going to do?
You'll have to quit this territory."
said McCafferty. "We cannot trust
you." But he finally gave the pair 48
hours in which ' to see their friends
here, and then had them escorted to a
train bound for Chicago.
Of course any stndent of law will
tell you that McCafferty was utterly
in the wrong, and if the men had
"stood on their rights" they could have
defied him. But in such a case they
would probably have been clubbed to
death, and they thoroughly realized it.
"Cupid Cop" the latest.
The "Cupid policeman" is the name
applied to William J. Deimody, who has
been assigned to the Broolyn Bureau
of Marriage Licenses.
His duties are many. He is a sort
of arbiter ior Cupid, watching for sus
picious persons and challenging their
right to marry. If a couple Deimody
thinks ill-mated, as to age or other
wise, asks a license, he will investigate.
Probably it is hoped to head off
stenographers who have designs on
their employers, while rich elderly
heiresses will be helped to keep their
money from young adventurers.

Friends of the late "Jake" Worth, for
many years the Republican leader of
Brooklyn have no sympathy to waste on
Schroeder, and point to his present plight
as1 proof that & man who Is untrue to
his friends always loses out In the end.
Fifteen years ago, Worth courted a
fight with Thomas C. Piatt, then the un
disputed boas of the state, by Insisting
that Schroeder be given the political job
he now holds. Piatt had a candidate of
his own, and to settle the dispute, Gov
ernor Morton offered the place to Worth.
At that time I asked the old Brooklyn
boss why he did not take the position,
knowinK at that moment he was in hard
There Is nothing I would rather do,"
he enid. "It Is a mighty good place, and
the salary is only an Incident. But how
can I do it? I've promised that I would
And Schroeder got the Job and has held
It ever since. He pledged undying grati
tude at the time, but a year later, Worth
had a fight with Piatt, and the state boss
ordered that Worth be defeated. So
Schroeder, despite his promises, threw
his delegation against the man who had
landed him in a snug berth.
Worth at that time said something to
me that is deserving of being repeated
He was really more hurt at Schroeder's
defection than he was at being defeated.
Here is the way he put it:
"This fellow Schroeder has forgotten
his friend at the time when his aid was
needed. In a long political career I have
found that there Is only one real sin
and that is Ingratitude, The time will
come when Fred Schroeder will need
friend, and he will bitterly regret that he
waa disloyal to the men who stood by
hltn when he asked their aid."
Worth was a good political prophet.
but the downfall of Schroeder came after
his first political sponsor was laid at
rest in a Brooklyn cemetery- Perhaps
Schroeder Is thinking of it now.

where he died a few hours later. He
walked Into the place shortly after 2
o'clock the other morning, and called for
a drink. Leaning over to the bartender,
he said suddenly:
"Say, life is Hell, isn't HT'
The bartender looked sympathetic, and
Mentz went on:
"Take mv case for example. I have
been married for Bix months, and the

Then he- drew a revolver ' from his
pocket and shot himnelf. While waiting
for this ambulance he ordered the extra

LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG
Wayne MacVeajrh'a Recollections of
the Immortal Utterance..
The November Century will publish a
sketch by Wayne McVeagh. giving his
personal memories of the delivery of
Lincoln's Gettysburg address, and the
Impression it created. Part of his nar
The address of Mr. Everett seemed to
me then, as It has whenever I have read
It since, perfectly adapted to the occa
sion, and exactly what such an oration
ought to be. It was of necessity elab
orate and long, because It Involved a
complete Justification of the war then
in Droeress and a graphic and detailed
description of the battle which had been
so recently fought where we were stand
ing; but It was eminently scholarly and
eloquent; the classic .product of a mind
familiar with the masterpieces of all
oratory, ancient and modern; and at its
conclusion I think every Intelligent per
son who heard It must have felt most
favorably impressed with the manner in
which the duty Imposed upon Mr. Everett
had been discharged.
At Its close, as I remember, there was
a short Interval of music, and then Mr.
Lincoln was presented, as only to accept.
In a few formal words, the cemetery in

Bcene, and while over his plain and
rugged countenance appeared to- settle a
great melancholy. It was somehow light
ened as by a great hope. As he began
to speak. I instinctively felt that the
occasion was taking on a new grandeur,
as of a great moment in history, and
then there followed. In siuw juid ver 1m-
presslve and far-reaching utterance, the
words with which the whole world has
lung been familiar. As each word was
spoken, it appeared to me so clearly
fraught with a message not only for us
of his day, but for the untold genera
tions of men, that before he concluded X
found myself possessed by a reverential
awe for its complete justification of the
great war he was conducting, as if con
ducted, as In truth it was, in the inter

And now comes the only inexplicabl
part of this statement. I waited until the
distinguished guests who wished to do so
had spoken to him. and then X said to
him with great earrirstness, "You have
made an immortal address."
To which he quickly replied: "Oh, you
must not say that. You must not be
extravagant about it."

did not see him again until on the train
on our way home. He was suffering

Hall Is all the rage.
In a blaze of glory doth
Baseball quit the itage.
In a royal contest lorked.
For the world' laurels, start.
And the eager interest show
'TIS near the Nation's heart.
Then ere yet hath died away
Baseball's hue and cry.
Kootbnll swoops upon the field.
Battles raging htyh,
Kuger thousands going wild
O'er their favorites' rttt'
While hospitals through the land .
Open for their prey.
Then the din that's all around, .
Pirst of this anil that.
Polar wrangler, suffragettes.
Shoulers standing pat.
Cheers of triumph, yells of wrath.
World Just full of brawl.
All around us nKht and noise
Everything is bawl.

Woman's most glorious endowment is the power
to awaken and hold the pure and honest love of a
worthy man. When she loses it and still loves on,
no one in the wide) world can know the heart agony
she endures. The woman who suffers from weak
ness and derangement of her special womanly or
ganism toon loses the power to sway the heart of
a man. Her general health sutfers and she loses
her good looks, her attractiveness, her amiability
and her power and prestige as a woman. Dr. R.V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N.Y., with
the assistance of bis staff of able physicians, has prescribed for and cured many
thousands of women. He has devised a successful remedy for woman's ail
ments. It is known as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is a positive
specific for the weaknesses and disorders peculiar to women. It purifies, regu
lates, strengthens and heals. Medicine dealers sell it. No honest dealer will
advise you to accept a substitute in order to make a little larger profit.
