“No Openings Nowheres”
She Is fortunate In having girl chums who
draw roses from their friends now and then,
'i he other afternoon one of her rosy friends
pinned a bright red one on her and she sal
lied forth into the street to make other wom

felt a tug at the shoulder and turned to see a
strange woman.
" Where "d you git that rose?" asked the
stranger covetously.
“A friend of mine gave It to me." was
the answer, produced with some chill.
"A friend of yours? In a store?”
"No. not In a store.”
"Well. haln’t there no openings no
wheres ?"
"Not that I know- of.”
"Humph! Just my luck. I'm just crazy
for a rose, and when 1 saw you I just knowed
there was a fall opening somewhere.”

machines. After certain comparisons to prove
accuracy, the schedules are permanently pre

of the persons for whom it stands, all personal
identity is eliminated from the cards. All dan

Romance of Old Portugal
The recent deposition of King Manuel of
Portugal and the events in the young king's
life that led up to it will no doubt bring back
to the minds of some of the older residents
of the city the story of Elise Hensier. the
Springfield girl who married a king and be
came the Countess Edla.
The king she married was Don Ferdinand
II. of Portugal, a great grandfather of King
Manuel. Elise lived in Springfield about 60
years ago. probably for about four years.
The Henslers were humble people and
lived simply. The daughters. Elise and Louise,
were well received here and were given a
good musical education, especially Elise. whe
had quite a remarkable voice. Signor Guidi.
an Italian, at the time a well known teacher
of the voice, took an Interest in Elise and it
was when Signor Guidi went to Boston that
the Hensiers went there, largely through his
influence. He believed that Elise had a fu
ture as a singer and wished her to be where
he could continue teaching her.
EUse Hensier after her removal with her
family to Boston continued her studies. She
was perseverant In her work and progressed so
ell that she not only appeared in concerts in
the ’arge cities in this country, but also in Eu
rope. where she sang before royalty. It waa
while singing In Lisbon several years after the
death of Queen Maria that King Ferdinand
heard her voice and felt the attraction that
led him to marry her.
Ferdinand was the titular king of Portugal,
having been the second husband of Queen
Maria II. of Portugal. Ferdinand married
Maria in 1836. when he was 20. The queen
died In 1853. and he was regent during the mi
nority of his son. Pedro V.. who was the fa
ther of the assassinated King Carlos, the
grandfather of the deposed King Manuel. The
regency ended In 1855. and on June 10. 1869,
he married Miss Hensier.
When the European powers decided the
time had come to restore Spain to a monarchy,
follcaing the overthrow of the shart republic,
which existed from 1873 to 1875, considerable
pressure was brought to bear upon Ferdinand
to induce him to accept the vacant throne.
But his wife could never be queen of Spain,
and It is possible that this fact alone Induced
him to refuse.
This absolute refusal on his part to accept
the throne of Spain, with all the pomp and
splendor of royalty in exchange for the roman
tic life that he was living with his morganatic
wile, had far-reaching consequences. The com
plications and jealousies resultant on the at
tempt to find a king acceptable to all the pow |
era helped to bring on the Franco Prussian
war. and Alsace and LcrraJne went back to
Germany, whence they had been wrested by
Napoleon Bonaparte.
In consequence of these peculiar historical !
facts, which geographically practically changed
all western Europe. Elise Hensier. Countess
Edla. became famous throughout the world as
"the woman who changed the map of Europe."
During the life of the king they lived in the
beautiful castle of Cintra. It is certain that
their life was above reproach. In 1SS5 the
king died, and after that the countess lived in
retirement in a cottage near the castie.

New One Recently Has Been Founc
in Mexico in the Palo
Amarillo Tree.
City of Mexico.—Another practical
and very extensive source of crude
rubber supply was recently discovered
in the vicinity of Guanajuato. It is
the palo r.marillo tree, which grows
wild in a broad scope of territory bor
bering the Paci5c coast and extending
towards the interior as far as Guana
Juato. The commercial possibilities ol
this tree as a producer of rubber have
been thoroughly tested by the Mex
lean government and by representa
tires of large American interests that
are investing considerable capital ir
the new industry.
The palo amarillo tree bears no re
semblance to the guayule shrub from
which large quantities of rubber art
being manufactured in Northern Mex
ico and Southwestern Texas. This
tree is also of a different species from
the rubber tree of the tropical regions
of Mexico and other countries. It at
tains a height of about 30 feet. Its
trunk gets to be of a thickness of one
to two feet The tree is of rapid
growth, reaching a commercial size in
five years.
The news that the palo amarilic
tree is being utilized for the manufac
ture of crude rubber has caused a
number of independent rubber con.

It is expected that a number of inde

will be established during the next i
few months and that it will not be a
great while until the palo amarlllo in
dustry will rival that of guayule rub
ber. in which more than 65 million
dollars gold has been invested during
the last few years.
With the assurance that the pale

can be easily propagated and that
their growth Is adapted to a large

Woman Blamed for Suicides.
Philadelphia.—That suicide in this
country Is largely contributed to be
cause of woman’s invasion of man's
field of work is the opinion of Dr. john
Chalmers Da Costa. Moreover, he de
clares. this and other ills will Increase
if women persist in leaving the home
for business. In a paper read before
the American Philosophical society
here Dr. Da Costa said:
“If woman continues to invade man’s
calling she will pay a dreadful penalty
In insanity and suicide and in the idi
ocy of her progeny, and she will wreck
the chief hope of civilization—the
clean, decent, happy home. The bla
tant and militant suffragette is well
along on the highway of degeneration."
