In English and American penal Institu

The women are generally kept In sep

when "courting" evidently goes on; for
there have been several marriage in
prisons lately, some tn cases when one

wishes to have the benefit of a com-
S anion; others when the man Is con
emned to desth and wants to give his

performed by a priest called In by the

London, Aug. 18. Most of ths London
papers announced the brilliant dinner
party given by the Duchess of Rox

duke, whose Objection to having his own
or his wife's name in print Is a standing
joke among his friends.

Ths new sold dinner service which
has been especially designed and made

duchess has broken - up soms of her
famous turquoise ornaments with which

consider ths Roxburghe. one more

decorated with palest mauve and blue
orchids which were sent especially xrotn

A special dressing room was arranged
on the ground floor for the . princess
whlrh waa a veritable bower of rosea
Ons very novel feature also greeted the
royal - guests. In the conservatory,
where the company partook of coffee
and liqueurs after dinner, mechanical
nightingales sang in suchperfect imi

Consuelo Duchess ot Manchester hag
triumphed over Mm, Potter Palmer,
having acquired possession of Egypt
House for the regatta at Cowes. Ths
combat between these two American
women for the acquisition of the smart
est house on ths island was fierce and
bitter. But It is not much good for
anv woman, even an - American ''mil
lionairess," to try to outrival King Ed-I
wards oldest and best woman friendTl
She is bound to succeed, whatever the
odds, against her. Nevertheless ;the
struggle between the. ladles hag re
sulted In a "fancy prion having -to be
paid by Consuelo who is giving 16,000
or thereabouts for the house for a fort
night. -.. . - : ... ' .
The klng-nnd queen with Prlnoese
Victoria are to dine with Consuelo dur
ing the coming week. She has. as usual,
arranged . to "fall in" With the king s
weakness In regard to carpeted floors,
his majesty having an aversion to the
polished floors at Egypt. House, and
she Is sending down her London deco
rator to cover completely the hail, stair
case, dining and drawing-room of her
abode at Cowes. Ever since the king
had a few nasty slips on polished floors
he has made It known to his friends
that If they desire his presence they
must carpet all carts in which he Is
likely to tread. Consuelo always takes
to Cowes her chef from Grosvenor
squareone of the pastmasters of the
culinary art. Some of the blggeat hotels
In London, have made overtures to him
with offer of handsome salaries, but
being loyal to his distinguished mis
tress he has declined all advances say
Ing. "Ah. but were I to go to an hotel
L should never have the honor of cook
ing for the king." --
Every one met during the week has
been demanding If It is true that Win
ston Churchill has won the matrimonial
prise of the season as represented In
the beautiful Margaretta Drexel, daugh
ter of Mrs. Anthony Drexel. Margaretta
has reigned supreme .all through the
season and has come In for more atten
tion than any other American girl here.
Right end left she hss fascinated and it
Is estimated that she has received of
fers of marriage at the average rate of
seven a week throughout the season. It
must not be forgotten that she is one
of the greatest American heiresses of
the moment, but If half what is said
be true this fact Is but a secondary
consideration with her would-be suitors
who state were she penniless shs would
bs quite as precious to them. Her man
ners are absolutely bewitching. She
twists men of ail ages round her little
Would Bs rUn BUalster.
For some time it has been noticed
that Winston Churchill haa, as we say
In England, been trying to ''hang up his
hat" at tha Drexel'a He certainly has
received some enoouragement from the
family and has been with them a great
deal. One day he aspires to prime min
ister of England, so thst the smartest
heiress of ths season might do worse
than scoept him. Being ambitious her
self this fact, no doubt, carries weight
with It. Money would not come amiss
to Winston, who Is by no means well
off. He works as hard as most men
for a few thaavnand pounds a year a

one can give a push.'
This anecdote Is recalled by the In

to the young men of that region, and

the appropriate name of BL Paul'e Insti

ferred to the American Board, the for
eign missionary agency of the Congre
gational churches In America. A party
of tourists who visited the school not

- Another. difficulty was to reach a
good solid foundation, for modern Tar

selves took hold of the. digging with
a will. They oame to many an ancient
wall, to fragments of marble pillars, to

great labor to break the big atones to
rieces and haul them and the earth up
o the surface In baskets by rope and
pulley, then to carry the baskets to
some distance and empty them. But
nothing could damp the energy of-the
brave workers. They thought -ot the
building that was to be. and cheered
on each other to the work with song
and laughter. They were not ambitious
to make a mark but simply to "give a

digging there waa not helped by the
light of even a candle!"
For thirty years he has been hard at
work in Turkey training boya and
young men for lives of usefulness. One
graduate is Instructor In the- Bheffleld
scientific school at Tale, but the ma
jority are scattered throughout their
own country aa teachers, physicians and
business men. The great puroose of
the school la to qualify men to render
the best service to the various races of
Asia Minor. A sign, of the world-wide
interest in St Paul's Institute is the
fact that it was visited not long ego
by Dr. Meyers of Cincinnati, the emi
nent historian, who gave an address on
the significant subject, "The Parliament
of Man. the Federation of the World." .

Photograph of Hindu Woman. -
From the Shanghai Msrcury. "
The curious fate of a photograph
taken In the mills during the late fac
tory commission cornea from Bombay.
It contained a party of three Hindu
women who quite understood the tak
ing of a picture and cams with alac
rity dressed In their best; they were
taken tn a group with several Moham
medan men. .
Alaal The canons of decorum were
broken. When the photograph appeared
the lurking objections of casta, took
concrete shape. The shameless . ones
were boycotted, no one would go near
them, other women would not allow
them to go to the same wells for
water, stall holders and shops refused

A Startling Confession
" '- ' ' ' ., i i. V.V
Say, Jim, did yoa ever really and truly think; did you ever hold
Camp meeting with yourself to"f iad our how really selfish and mean
yon are? I do sometimes, and it makes me almost ashamed of my
self. . Did yon ever figure out this insane, wild scramble for the
- "MIGHTY DOLLAR," how. silly it all really Is? Don't you wish
that yon and I and everybody else were ON THS SQUARE? That
the DOLLAR only counted for a medium of exchange, and that lore,
charity and homely honesty were collateral at the bank? ,1 do, and I
firmly believe yon do, too. Jim, the whole proposition is mors or
less a LEMON. It is sour becaues you and I make it so. You are
after my DOLLAR and I am after yours, and the devil is after both
of us. Ws will cut no figure one hundred years hence, only so far
as we have helped some other fellow to live, laugh and love. We
don't count for much, but if we try hard we might leave a record
that might count for considerable. Dave Harum said: "If yoa get
a dollar, put it in to you, or on to you, as soon as possible. We ara
here today and gone tomorrow, wis are a long time dead, and there
are no pockets in a shroud." Z will add to the above quotations
Divide the dollar with some one who needs It more than yon or I;
it may do some good. "The good we do is all that counts (or any.
thing in this world." I have had twenty-five years' experience in
Portland, have quit chasing any dollar that I don't need to support
my family, and now dividing with the fellow that needa them more
than I do. You may think that I am attempting to convert you to
my way of thinking about ths dollar. Not on-your life, Jim I . I am
only trying hard to fasten forever in your memory the name of W.
M. KiUingsworth, and that he is in the real estate business, a firm
believer in Portland, and Walnut Park property, also in all lands lo
cated between the rivers. There never was, and probably will never
be, ads more closely read than are mine, because I am not afraid to
always tell the truth. I am after your dollar, and I expect to give
you full value for that dollar, otherwise I would soon be out of busi
ness. As stated, for twenty-five years I have conducted in Portland
a successful real estate business. My knowledge is valuable; as
proof, I hsve made far more coin for my numerous ustomers than
for myself. Every investor will be benefited by my advice. I need
you in my business, and you need me. I can save you a few dollars,
and make a few for myself. Come to my office and talk it over. Life
is short; you cannot afford to make mistakes. I am prepared to give
experienced counsel in my line of business. I have a deal on now;
one of great merit Come, don't be afraid to know all about it Call on
