There was a constant stroam of

In tho. soldered tin box at Tho Jour

tlemen, state and city officials, busl-

ilty to participate In a "porfectly
harmless and amusing guessing con
test," but nil lured on by tho free
gift to guess a $1C0 diamond ring onto
Their finger. Hon. D. H. Loonoy, of
Jefferson, cx-prcaldent of tho state

Tho Unknown Number.
Wo, tho undorslgicd, were present
at Tho Journal offico January Hth, nnd
assisted In tho forming of tho unknown
number, according to tho plan pub
lished to be used in tho Capital Jour
nal Diamond Guessing Contest. Un
der th 6 rules of forming tho number,
it is Impossible for anyone, not oven

Jowolor who' furnished tho ring, to
Uniform Divorce Laws.
The Chlcngo Nows- calls attention
to the possibility that tho recent ac
tion of New oYrk churchen with re
gard to the remarriage of divorcees
may bring about federal divorce law
sentiment that will provo beneficial.
This is a consummation devoutly to
be wished for. There is scarcely any
federal legislation that would result
in greater good to tho social wolfaro
of, the people of this country general
ly than a tmlform divorce law. It
would seem, If ono woio to consider
tho high Interests of American socio
ty, that It would be as easy and cer
tainly as logical an undertaking to
bring about legal conditions which
tend to protect tho purity of the fami
ly as to pass a law which has uniform
operation In defonso of creditors'
right against Insolvent debtors. To
deny this is frankly to admit that tho
dollar Is tho truo god after all. The
enactment of a uniform federal di
vorce law is dcsirablo from every
point of view. It hay been recom
mended that a conference between
the govornors of ilio sovoral states
be hold for tho purposo of outlining
a gonoral plan for legislation which
will secure practically tho samo re
sult. A momont's reflection Bhould
convince any poison that such a plan
would prove Ineffective, and at best
be far loss feaslblo than a persistent
attompt to havo tho muttor taken up
by congress. In tho ono caso thoro
would bo forty-llvo law-making bodies
to deal with, and tho supposition that
thoso would act in union on any sin
gle proposition approaches tho border
lino of tho absurd. If tho churcho3
of the country doslro to ongago In a
crusade of practical moment, hero Is
tho opportunity. Tho importanco of
tho subject warrants any labor and
expense that may bo Involved in
thorough organization, and aside from
this, tho movomont would havo tho
unqualified support of an overwhelm
ing majority of cltlzons.

A Phrase From "Faust"
Reference to hor last vlsJt to San

It was Mmo. Pattl's regret that hor
husband was not nt hand to bo pre

"Ho Is a noblo Swedish gentleman

this Uttlo lament:
"Oh, how I would llko to go out to

that sho had been chatting merrily

Tho sale of scats yesterday for
Mmo. Pattl's two concerts netted an

of $21,000. Thoro aro still good scats
