LIKES BUCKWHEAT CAKES.
Kaaparor William' Cook Takinir
la American Culinary Art.
Americans will be glad to learn that
a new bond of sympathy has been
woven between the German emperor
and the people of the great republic. It
is announced that the German sover
eign has added buckwheat cakes to the
royal menu; also codfish cakes, hominy
pancakes, oatmeal and Welsh rarebit:
By his order the imperial chef took
passage on an American uner, ana on
the voyage was instructed in the
preparation of a long list of typically
American dishes. The emperor capitu
lated to buckwheat on the occasion of
a recent visit to the new Himburg
American yacht, the Pilnzcesin Vic
toria I.ulse. The chef of chefs of the
Hamburg-American line is Einll Fah
renhelm of the steamship Deutschland.
For the occasioin he was transferred to
the yacht and for the kaiser's break
fast prepared a typical American menu,
which, so the story goes, o pleased the
emperor that he invited himself to
remain for luncheon and dinner. On
his return from the theater at mid
night he was regaled with a Welsh
rarebit. Then it was that the kaiser
capitulated. 'Ach, Gott," he exclaimed
fervently, "never have I tasted such
delicacies as these buchweizen pfann
kuchen and hominy pfannkuchen.
They are so light: So tarty! So rich:
My cordon bleu shall be instructed In
the art of preparing them." So Herr
Voclkcrs, the Koeniglich-KaiKerlicher
mund koch, sailed with the Deutsch
land and was put through a course of
culinary sprouts, taking voluminous
notes and upon arrival at Cherbourg
graduated from the tutelage of Herr
Fahrenhelm with high honors. Some
day he is to make the round trip on
the Deutschland and learn further of
American cooking. The emperor has i
out just embarked upon his culinary
conquest and there are i-till worlds to
conquer. The Welsh rarebit will but
give him appetite for the golden buck.
the codfish cake for brown bread and
baked beans, the buckwheat cake for
mince pie. And after these there will
tni remain scrapple and fried mush.

MAN'S SPHERE IN NATURE.
Evolution TheorlaU Dnelnrs Ha II a. At
tained It hf Slow Dffrrea.
Since Huxley's pioneer work in 1863
a host of investigators have carried
forward the study of structural resem
blances connecting the genus man with
lower genera and orders, says Profes
sor W. J. McGee in his address as re
tiring president of the Anthropologi
cal society of Washington. Today the
physical similarities are among the
commonplaces of knowledge, what
soever the background of philosophical
opinion concerning cause and se
quence. During the last decade or two
the investigators themselves, with
scarce an exception, have gone one
fitep farther and now include sequence
of development from lower to higher
forms as among the commonplaces of
opinion, whatsoever the background of
metaphysical notion as to the cau;
There the strictly biologic aspect of the
question as to man's place in nature
may safely be considered to rest. The
chief advances In anthropology have
related to what men do and what men
think, and the progress has been such
as to indicate with fairly satisfactory
clearness the natural history of human
thinking, aa well as that of human do
ing. A3 is shown by the latest re
searches, the mental workings of the
human are analogous with those of the
lower animals, while the range from
the Instinct and budding reason of
higher animals to the thinking of the
lowest man would seem far less than
that separating the beast-fearing sav
age from the scientist and statesman
In short, the evident tendency of the
science of anthropology is, according to
Professor McGee, toward the establish
ment of a mental as well as a physical
evolution of man from a prototype of
lower rank In the animal klngdom.

Slander by phonograph Is the latent
invention of malice. In a, subirb o,
Berlin a sewjng machine dealer had a
squabble with one of his agents, so,
unable to think of another way of In
juring him, he conceived the idea of
slandering and defaming him In public
by means of a phonograph. He con
fided to one of these Instruments a
declaration that he had denounced his
enemy for forgery and embezzlement,
and placed it in a conspicuous place
in the beer-room of the local inn. Soon
afterwards guests entered the chamber
and put their pence in the slot, where
upon they were shocked at the serious
charges against one of their acquaint
ances. A slander action followed. The
phonograph was brought Into court as
a witness; but the instrument seemed
to have got a bint of the base purpose
to which It had been applied for It re
fused to repeat the calumnies! There
were, however, a sufficient number of
wUneaaea to prove that the remark
had been made by the Instrument on
the day in question, so the court found
for the plaintiff; and the defendant,
whose conduct was characterized by
the magistrate as "malignant," waj
fined fifty shillings!

The Painting of Satan.
BY ETHELYN LESLIE HUSTON.
(Copyright, by lJully Story Pub. Co.)
Although the rest of the guests of
the gentler sex at the Hotel Helena
sometimes Bald unkind things about
Mrs. Weston, that lighthearted little
lady was, perhaps, like a certain per
son not mentioned in polite society, not
quite as black as she wag painted. It
Is true she did like to talk to interest
ing men, whether they happened to be
married or not. and th men. Interest
Ing and otherwise, liked very much to
talk to her. And when Mr. Hartleigh
began to show a distinct preference for
her society In that lazy hour or two
after dinner while digestion went com
fortably on to the soothing strains of
the mandolin orchestra, Mrs. Weston
took It as a matter of coure.
J he Hartleighs had always shown
their fondness for each other as much
as good breeding would permit, and to
the casual observer, there was no
change in their mutual regard. But
Mrs. Weston scented trouble through
her high-bred little nose as accurately
aa a thoroughbred racer sniffs danger
borne to his quivering nostrils on the
And when Hartleigh brought his In
dolent post-prandial revolutions to an
anchorage beside her chair, she re
ceived him with the tact that questions
not, but waits. And such tact is worth
unminted gold to women, If they but
knew It. A few do.
bo, one evening, she learned all
about it. She knew that Hartleigh was
not In love with her, and she knew
that Harticlgh's wife, under her usual
gently gracious air, was fretting about
the intangible something that bad
thrust its Banquo-ghost Into their hap
That evening when Hartleigh made
some reckless statements to her about
her Irrislstable attractions generally
"But Mra. Hartleigh."
nd his appreciation thereof, and all
the rest of It, Mrs. Weston nodded her
sensible little head and assumed an
air of fitting gratitude for the compli
ment paid ber, and then faltered, with
a becoming touch of hesitation, and n
quite fetching little quaver In her aoft
voice "But Mra.-Hartleigh "
Hartleigh toased hla cigar behind the
gas-log of the !ig fireplace and laid,
with gloomy Irritation:
"Oh, she doesn't rare. Tbe Beat of
oa are. conceited beggars, you know,
and I used to think she did, which
bow what aa aaa man Is."
Mrs. Weston smoothed a smile from
r.er lips wilh her big black fan.
.i i , . ....
auu ust-miM sue ooesn t, she re
flected, while her eyes danced. "I am
to be a sop to his lordship's vanity.
Liear, dear. How very clumsy men are,
to be sure. But I II try to fix the
thing up. Though I'll get no thanks
for it. One never does."
So she purred a few sympathetic
purrs, which are all a clever woman
needs to do when a man Ls bothered,
and the whole story came out.
Hartleigh, it appeared, had gone to
his wife's desk to scribble a note one
Had seen an open letter,
evening when ahe happened to be out,
and on pulling out a drawer for some
note-paper, had seen an open letter
that had been tossed carelessly in
there. His sense of honor was too
fine to tolerate any thought of reading
what was not Intended for his eyes,
but the second's glance caught two or
three words that had sent their sting
down into his heart's core. And he
had closed the drawer, and that waa
"And you have not spoken of It to
her?" asked Mrs. Weston.
"Xo. What's the use?" he replied
drearily. "She's tired of me, I suppose,
but I cannot very well go and ask her
to say so. The woman must Lake tbe
initiative In a thing of that son."
Mrs. Weston nibbled the edge of her
fan and the muscles around her pretty
mouth twitched. Hartleigh Lad en
tirely forgotten, in the unburdening of
nis sick soul that be had declared n
deep and abiding passion for Mrs.
Weston but Ore minute befure nn.i
was plunged in gloomy reverie. Mrs
Weston pressed the fan sternly against
her rebellious lips, and finally turned
toward him a face of becoming gravity.
"Perhaps It Is not as bn.1 as It looks "
she said seriously. "Wo may prove
an alibi yet. Go away now, and give
Mr. 8tauton your seat. You have been
talking to me long enough, and tbe
tabbies are looking unutterable things
Thus while she talked sweetly to the
enraptured Stanton, her busy and
clever brain was at work on the Hart
leigh problem. She was unxhaken in
her belief that Mrs. Hartleigh was In
love with but one man. and that nan
was Hartleigh. Consequently, that let
teror portion of letter that Hart
leigh had accidentally seen, must have
some explanation. But how to gst at
It Is a thankless task to try and i"t

resigned herself to tbe ordeal. The
tabblea looked daggers and battering-
rams as they saw her lift ber eye
brows In Hartlelgh's direction and that
gentleman promptly resume tbe seat
Stanton hid just vacated at a slightly
more Imperative signal from Mrs.
"My beloved Christian friend," said
Mrs. Weston, gravely. "There is one
thing due Mrs. Hartleigh, under all
circumstances, and that ls an apology."
"Exactly. It was a breach of honor,
however Innocent, and It is Incumbent
upon you, as 'an officer and a gentle
man,' to admit your indiscretion, or
error, and make tbe amende honor
Hartleigh drew a long breath, and
moved uneasily in bis chair.
"Well, it will be dashed unpleasant,"
he said hesitatingly. "But if you think
there is no other way and It Is the
"Assuredly, the proper thing," said
his mentor sternly. "You had no
right to fumble around the private
desk of anybody, and if you found
something you did not want to And,
that was retribution. And the penalty
thereof is sack-cloth and ashes."
"But If she Is permitting some black
guard to write things "
"Yon do not know what she is per
mitting, or anything about it," said
"But I tell you I saw "
"Three words. Eactly. And there-
by hangs a history which you have
filled In with the aid of a vivid Imag
ination and doubtless some personal
experience " (Hartleigh again moved
uneasily In his chair "and It has
never entered your head that there
may be some things in the heavens
above and the earth beneath, of which
you are not altogether cognizant. In
any case, two wrongs do not make one
right. I had that in my copybook at
school. You must apologize."
Tho next evening the bistre shadows
that had begun to deepen around Mrs.
Hartlelgh's soft gray eyes, were gone.
and the Helenc guests congrattnaieti
her on the deliverance from the dull
headache that had clung to her so
ong. After dinner, Hartleigh drew
Mrs. Weston aside for a moment
He told her how Mrs. Hartleigh had
Insisted upon his reading the whole
letter, which was the unwise effusion
of an unwise man who hud loved her
long before i-he met Hartleigh, and had
written her a stormy reproach for not
even requiting hi long devotion with
a sign of friendly Interest in his wel
Hartleigh was immensely relieved
and a good deal ashamed of himself,
and after he had explained fully, out
of the gladness of bis heart, and di
lated upon the blessings that Heaven
had bestowed upon him, and of which
ho was most unworthy, and bored poor
Mrs. Weston almont to extinction, he
took himself off to hang over the back
of his wife's chair for the greater part
of the evening.
And always after that Banquo-epl-sode
of the Hartlelgh's. Mrs. Hart
lelgh's demeanor toward Mrs. Weston
was tinged with a chill reserve. Which
Mrs. Weston received with the calm
philosophy of one who knows her
"Blessed Is tho peace-maker," she
quoted to herself, with her shrewd lit
tle smile. "And I could have made
all sorts of trouble, had I wished. Dear,
And she smiled on Mr. Stanton
sweetly and plaintively asked him tho
secret of his perennial youth, while
Mrs. Stanton glared at her icily, and
presented her with a large and heavily
bead-armored shoulder for the balance
of the evening.

One of the local councils In a district
of Vienna has directed all women fre
quenting public parks and gardens un
der their Jurlsdicton to hold up their
skirts if they would otherwise trail
upon the ground. ' The notice states
that these Inclosurea are devoted to
the recreation of persons desirous of
escaping from the dusty town, and
therefore the authorities object to the
dust being swept Into heaps by the
trailing skirts. Even so far back aa
the reign of Edward II long trains
were de rlgueur. This is what one of
the monks sayB: "I heard a proud
woman who wore a white dress with a
long train, which, trailing behind her,
raised a dust even so far as the altar
and the crucifix. Hut as she left the
church and lifted up her dress on ac
count of the dust, a certain holy man
saw .the devil laughing. He asked him
the cause and the devil replied: 'A
companion of mine waa Just sitting on
the train of that woman, using It as a
chariot, but when she lifted It up my
companion wag shaken off Into the
dust and so I laughed.' " Evidently the
local councils of Vienna are somewhat
antiquated In their notlos.
