, Miss Myrtle Elvyn ts hens looking
handsomer than ever In her mourning
robes. .While her vivacity seems to
have been somewhat overshadowed by
her recent loss her sweetness has grown
There Is a current opinion among mu
sicians and critics that ' one cannot
reach one's best work until one , has
suffered. Then surely Miss Elvyn's
work must have grown in beauty be
cause the death of her father three
weeks ago Is an ever present thought
with her. Her father, she says, was
everything to her, father, brother,
sweetheart and guide, and she finds
it -Impossible to keep from talking of
him. She tells of being in Austin,
Texas, with her mother, when the
telegram announcing his serious ill
ness arrived; .now tney arove maaiy
for the sutlon and caught the train
because It was late; how a kind man
on the train, learning or tneir ais-
tress, telegraphed to Han Antonio to
hold the train for two Chicago, women
in trouble: how they were met by a
cabman who, told them not to fear and
whipping: his .horses took them at a
mad pace, through the streets to their
train which' was awaiting them; and
how they arrived In Chicago a day too
late. - ' .
Miss Elvyn did not abandon ber tour
and It Is probably the nly thing, that
saved her from a nervous breakdown.
Her frlenda persuaded her that it was
her father's wish since he had sac
rificed all for her career, that she con
tinue In that career of which be was
so proud. , t '
"At first- sh says, "i thought I
could never play , again and my first
concert after his death, given In Butte,
was a terrible ordeal. I thought I
should never get through. It Was the
first music I had heard since my fath
er's death and I cried like a baby when
the chorus began to sing. But now I
find my musio is my only consolation
and I feel that I am talking with my
father, when I play. . I love to play
his favomtes because he seems to be
standing beside me then and guiding
my hands. I feel that I can play bet
ter 'than I ever did before."

it naceaaarv for an . artist to go to

with a pair of Virginia deer, and baa
experimented with white talis, , black
talis and other hybrids, but the climate
of Iowa has evolved a type of the north
ern deer as the breed hardly enough for
all purposes. .
Griggs pays as much attention to the
breeding of the deer as the vern(
farmer does to the breeding ' of his
horses. This is necessary to 3 prevem
Inbreeding, which means scrubs. . The
mating' season Is In November, the
fawns are born in May. or June "and
by fall the spots have all lef,t the
fawns and their normal coat of hair
appears. . .y ; '
Deer' In- captivity breed as wen as in
the wild state. Young; does usually give
birth 'to a single fawn, but the older
does usually have . twins. Last year
Griggs 86 does brought him Ef fawns.
These require no care. .
The deer corral,' which, includes a
large. piece of woodland. Is stirrounded
by an' eight-foot woven wire, fepce,
doubly strengthened as to posts. The
natural food of deer is the green bits
of the forest but they can be taught
to ike corn, while alfalfa and clover
are delicacies that appeal to their appe
tites. . : ":.' ,'.,- :
Griggs markets yearly all the deer he
cares to sell. ; For park purboses he
gets from 18 to $30 'each, while for
venison he secures as much from a car
cass, the antlers bringing In an average
of f 5 each. " About tne only loss comes
from injuries Inflicted when a deer Is
frightened and conflicts with angry
bucks. , '.-.','"', ':! '

New York, Feb. 1LThe domination by
3, Flerpont Morgan of the American fin
ancial situation has again been demon
strated. In the announcement seml-of-flctally
made that be is to be the head
and front of the great Pan-American
bank, the mission of wblch Is to streng
then the commercial position of the
United States throughout' the American
hemisphere. - -
The great banking house of Spoyer A
Co., which had marked this as one of its
own plums, has been quietly superseded
and while I understand they were, of
fered a 'share In the project but were
not satisfied with it and are now left
out entirely. '
This Pan-American bank scheme will
have the active Interest of the United
States government back of it as it Is
felt that with an American bank band
ling the finances of South America not
only will American trade be greatly
benefited but the chances of complica
tions because -of the Monroe doctrine
will be greatly reduced.

New York merchants are after their
share of trade and exceptional prepara
tions have this year been made by New
York's great distributers of merchandise
for an actlv spring season.
The Merchants' association of New
York has arranged for an extension of
the , lower merchants' transportation
rates both- as to territory end time. The
additional selling dates of special mer
chants' excursion tickets to New York
in trunk line territory: February 1 to
22, inclusive; Mirnh S to 8, Inclusive;
March 1 to 22, Inclusive. Central pas
sengt!r: February fi to 8. Inclusive; Feb
ruary It to 12, Inoluslve; March B to 8,
The association lias also simplified the
plan by which interior merchants can
take advantage of the lower railroad
fares and has forwarded to retail mer
chants throughout the country full In
formation regarding this channs as well
as convincing literature showing the
undoubted advantages the necessity
of arrresslve merchants visiting New
York and making tlwlr purchases at
this center of at least that part of their ,
stock on which most of the money is
made In the retail business. Buyers
hava already beaun to arrive In con
siderable numbers, find the officers of
the association believe the prospects fa
vor a particularly satisfactory 'spring
trade for the metropolis. .
One-quarter of a million of reduced
fare circulars are mailed semi-annually
to the out-of-town trade. Of this num
ber 115.000 are issued by the associa
tion, belg sent direct to merchants rated
$1000 and upwards In the sections of
the country affected by the reduced
fares. Tlia remainder of the circulars
ere sent by the resident members off

The New York Fruit Exchange has
taken up the question of Irregular way
bills covering goods (perishable) shipped
out by the Jobbers over the various
transportation lines during the midwin
ter . season. It is the purpose of the
exchange to set. on foot an Investiga
tion In, certain rulings Issued by the
railroads covering less than car, lots.
It Is said that in making shipments some
of the Jobbers have found that the rail
roads In order to cover themselves in
case of damage to the shipments have
scratched out the word "refrigeration"
on the , shipping receipts and In this
way have disavowed all responsibility
for loss Incurred as the result of frost
damage while the goods were In transit
It Is ths claim of the shippers that
less than car lot shipments are entitled
to the same protection as the car lot

From the New York World.
In the eyes of the ltusolftn govern

teacnlng are vicious. He was osten
tatiously excommunicated by the synod
In 1001. His political writings are
openly revolutionary. His social doc
trines are hostile to the authorities.
Against church, state, society, laws and
government he - has for meny years
raised his voice in scorn and denuncia
tion. Against the most cherished in
stitutions of the world as - they exist
today he has boen the fearloss preacher
of revolt. Many very respectable peo
ple outside Russia regard him as an
anarchist and apostle of all that Is evil.
