PERIPATETIC MAI US.
The Scheme Not Feasible, and Will Prob
ably Not lie Tried.
A writer In nn Eastern Journal sug
gests the plan of having a peripatetic
ladles' maid who will serve a number ol
mistresses, Jusl as syndicates of half a
doxen men or more employ one man to
perform the duties of vnlet for all ot
them. The scheme docs not seem feas
ible, however. It Is possible enough for
one active man to look after the clothes
of a doxen masters, lay out their linen
and perform similar services preliminary
to the actual work of dressing. o, too,
a mold could do a lot of mending for
several women In a day. Hut she would
he a sewing woman, und not a maid.
The bitter's chief function, as It seems
to a mere man and a tiachelor at that,
Is to assist her mistress In putting nn
und taking off her gowns, performing the
little- personal services that are most
Important before or after n bull or din
ner. And how would the several mis
tresses manage at such a time? The
maid could not lie In two places nt one
time, like Sir Royle Roches' bird, nnd
the mistresses would have to draw lots
to determine In what order they should
have her services. The position of them
would be us enjoyable us that of a San
Francisco girl who postponed engaging
the hnlnlesser In vogue to do up her hair
for a bal poudre until the lust moment,
and then found that all his hours were
taken up except 8 o'clock In the morn
ing. Sho had to tie up at that un
christian hour, und to remain up all day,
lest her coiffure should bo disarranged.
GREEK AND RUSSIAN.
The Approaching Mart rage of Princess
Mario and Grand Duke George.
Princess Marie of Greece, who has Just
been betrothed to the Grand Duke George
of Ruslsu, Is not beautiful, although dis
patches claim she Is tho huiulsoincst and
wittiest princess In Europe. This Is
done every time u princess becomes en
Princess Marie Is tall and athletic nnd
hor expression Is so pleasant and viva
cious thnt she charms at first sight.
Sho Is tho only survlvng daughter of the
king and queen of Greece, and ns her
mother wns a Russian grand princess,
It Is natural that sho should Inherit Mus
covite tendencies. Tt Is believed the en
gagement was hastened on account of n
rumor that Kink Alexander of Servln,
who has been refused by nearly every
marriageable priness In Europe, was
coming to Athens to nsk for her hand.
Princess Marie's ehler sister was a re
markably sweet disposltloned ami lovable
girl, but her death soon after nor mar
riage to Grand Duke Paul, brother of the
man Trlncess Mario Is to marry, was
lielloved to bo hastened by his brutality
and unklndness. It Is said thnt Grand
Duko George, the prospective bridegroom,
Is a much better man thnn his brother.
Ho Is nn uncle of the present cxar. One
of his brothers visited the United States

"The league endorses the action or
Mayor Walbridge In declining outside
aid. It feels grateful for the many evi
dences of generosity In these help offer
ings, but having made careful Investi
gation of the storm stricken district,
which though extensive. Is almost en
tirely confined to a section of the city
outside of the principal business area.
It Is Its deliberate Judgment that the
city will be amply able to fully provide
for all the needs of the afflicted.
They further announce that not a single
hotel In the city has been affected, or
the wholesale manufacturing district ma

building erected for the Republican con

of the storm, and one of the after-effects

THOMAS BYRNES NEW SPHERE.
Former Superintendent of Police at the
Head of a Burglary Insurance
New York, May 29. Thomas Byrnes,
former superintendent of the New York
police department, has spread dismay
throughout the great army of crooks
and brought Joy to the heart of the su
burban resident by the announcement ot
his latest scheme. It Is a business enter
prise pure nnd simple, n new departure
in the Insurance line, whereby n man
may get his goods and chattels Insured
agnlnst the depredations of burglars.
Mr. Byrnes has been chosen by nn In
surance company to act ns managing di
rector nnd vice-president of a new branch
of their business, which Is to deal solely
with tho Insurance of all kinds of prop
erty, private nnd public, against thieves.
"The Idea of starting nn Insurance
against burglary has been more thnn
once suggested to me," said Sir. Byrnes
yesterday. "Hut I have several times
refused to undertake It. However, during
a recent trip to England, I was given un
opportunity of looking more deeply Into
the working nnd effect of the burglary
Insurance companies there, und when 1
dime back to New York and the proposal
was once more made I was Induced to
accept this position.
"The first English company there are
two or three working successfully now
was stnrted in the winter of 1S8S-18S9, and
was tho result of a co-operation scheme
started by two young stock brokers, to
protect their house during their absence

Well that they h.nl the company Ini or

ance business, but I think I know a
thing or two uboul crooks and it,. Ir wnys
and, of course, my relations with (he po
lio, departments of other cltle will give
mo a great advantage. It lias always
IsM-n my Idea to ssstnt the 1'Kal authori
ties lo tho fullent extent, but If they fall,
wo will send from one to one hundred
men If necessary to the scene of the pub
glary, and we won't give up until we
get the man who did the Job.
