Whatever the plans of the New
York District Attorney, William Trav
ers Jerome, may be In reference to the
criminal prosecution of the central
figures lu .the great American Insur
ance scandal, it Is patent to all Paris,
writes a correspondent tn the French
capital, that no fear Is entertained in
the mind of James Huzen Hyde, former
vice president of the Equitable Life
Assurance Society, or Richard A. Mc
Curdy, who was ousted from the pry
Idency of ,the Mutual. For more than
u year now these two ostracized mill
ionaire votaries of high finance have
luxuriated In the distracting atmos
phere of Paris.
Hyde, who is really better known In
Paris than he was at any time In New
York, Is living au easy life. His most
serious effort at the present time Is to
become known as the king of the Paris
Latin quarter. To this end Hyde Is
spending his money lavishly, and the
wide circle of Bohemian painters and
litterateurs, which he has gathered
around him, regard him as their pa
tron saint.
Hyde lives In a beautiful and mam
moth mansion In Avenue Henri Martin.
In the spacious snlon of his beautiful
home Hyde gives regular entertain
ments, which ore the very ocme of epi
curean splendor. His favorite pastime
Is to entertain large parties of his
giddy friends upon automobile excur-
A swimming glove to aid man In hli
progress through the water Is a recent
Invention. It gives the swimmer tho
assistance the duck derives from his
webbed feet. Greater speed and a great
er distance covered, with less fatigue
than with the naked hands, are claimed
to be the advantages the wearer of this
glove will enjoy. It fits the hands
tightly and Is slipped on lu the ordinary
way. The webs are strong pieces of
cloth, running from little finger to
thumb. Every stroke of the swimmer Is
thus effective, the Increased area of the

sions in the south of France and else
where. By these anil other means Hyde
has at this time successively blotted
out, so far ns Paris is concerned, the
ostracism which followed his eonnee-
tion with the Insurance revelations. He
is the hero of the impecunious horde
of long-liulred youths of the boulevards.
Hyde participates fu'iy lu tho free and
easy life of the Latin quarter. At the
last artists' ball, Hyde made a big hit
Impersonating an Arabian gypsy.
Recently Hyde has shown a tendency
to re-enter aristocratic French society,
and among the fashionables of Paris
his princely wine cellar is exciting won
der and admiration.
Richard A. McCurdy's existence in
Paris has been quite the opposite of
Hyde's, though It is well intended to
blot from the memory of the former
Mutual president the disagreeable ex
periences of a year and a half ago.
McCurdy's life In Paris has amounted
almost to monastic retirement He Is
surrounded by an exclusive circle of
personal friends, aud he Is devoting
himself to simple diversions which car
ry with tham no distasteful memories.
He is never seen In the gay centers of
Paris, and he Is entirely unknown In
society. He reads no newspapers.
When an effort whs made to Interview
him he sent word that he would feel
keenly any further notoriety lu connec
tion with the Insurance scandal. At
this time It is learned from a personal
friend ofl McCurdy's that, while he is
attempting In every possible way to
eradicate memories of the scandal
which enmeshed him, he finds It diffi
cult to have any complete comfort lu
his life.

One Declared to Be Uannllr Enough
for Wornt of Sailor.
"The serving of one sentence ahonrd
a prison ship Is usually enough for the
worst of sailors," said L. H. Dunlavy,
who has Just concluded his term of
enlistment In the hospital corps of the
united States navy. He served as a
nurse for a time on board the Uuited
States naval prison ship Southery at
Portsmouth, N., II.
"They have no cells on the ship,"
Dunlavy said. "The prisoners are lock
ed at night In the forward aud after
berth decks. They are compelled to
work every day except Sunday In the
navy yanl. Sunday they have to at
tend religious services. They get rath
er to liking Sunday too.
"It gives them a chance to let out
their voices when the hymns are be
ing sung. Their working hours nre

A heater especially Intended to raise
bread by means of the heat of a lamp
has been recently patented by a Wis
consin man. As
shown In the illus
tration, the casing
is of sheet metal,
the lower portion
having openings
for the admission
of air. The casing
Is bottomless. A
partition having nn
opening In the cen
ter divides the up-
tions, a lamp being placed below this
opening when the heater is In use. Sup
ported above the opening Is a deflecting
cone, the point of the cone being directly
over the lamp. Near the top of the up
per flared section are a number of
holes. The sides of the bread pan are
flared, the edges of the pan neatly rest
ing aud fitting on the edge of the cas
ing. The supposition Is that the hot
air from the lamp rises and is deflected
by the cone, so that it readies the sides
of the bread pan and escapes through
the holes at the top, preventing excess
heat around the pan. The time saved
by the use of this heater will he in
stantly recognized.
Haahed Drown Potatoes.
There are two ways of nrenarlns
these. One method Is to hush them In

favorite way, however, for breakfast is

The Democrats of Oklahoma have se
lected as one of the United States Sen
ators to represeut Oklahoma, Thomas
P. Gore, of Lawton, who Is totally
blind. His nomination Is equal to an
election. This is the first time In the
history of . the United States that a
blind man has ever been sent to the
Senate, as Mr. Gore will be when state
hood Is accomplished under the present
proposed constitution.
Mr. Gore has been In politics all his
life, beginning as a page In the Mis
sissippi Senate when he was but 11
years old. It was during that time that
he lost his eyesight by an accident
with an arrow gun. Three years pre
lvously he bad lost his left eye, a play
mate, In a moment of passion, striking
him with a stone.
Mr. Gore Is but 30 years of age. He
lives at Lawton, has a wife and four
children, and is a lawyer by profes
sion. His memory Is a wonder. When
his father prepared to send him to a
blind school, he refused to go,, saying
that schools for the blind did not fur
nish him the books and opportunity he
desired. So he went to the public
schools and college, getting through by
reason of his acute memory.
