Deafening Din Makes Speakers'
Words Inaudible—5.000 Per
sons Assemble.
London.—The suffragettes held
meetings again Sunday in Hyde park
and on Wimbledon common. They
would have met the fate of last Sun
day's meetings at the same place,
when it required a strong body of po
lice to escort them to safety, but for
the fact that large bodies of mounted
and foot policemen were in attend
Five thousand pe'rsons assembled in
the park and swarmed about the
speakers' platform, and by a deafen
ing din prevented any word of "Gen
eral" Mrs. Flora Drummond's speech
being heard. The pressure of the
surging crowds at length became so
great that reinforcements were sum
moned. Mrs. Drummond and her col
leagues were rescued from their per
ilous position with some difficulty.

the speakers was audible, .and they,
too. had’ to be protected.
Another meeting at Hempstead
Heath was still more disorderly.

confusion. Many suggested ducking
the speakers in a pond.

House Has Eighty-Two and Senate
Seventy People Employed As
Lincoln.—Early in the session vari
ous republicans, including the state
auditor and several elective officials,
were making loud protests over the
fact that the house employe list was
mounting up to a point where the
number of employes exceeded the
number allowed by law. Now that pro
test has died down into nothing more
than an unobserved escape of hot air.
Here is the reason:
An examination of the records of
the auditor’s office shows that the
house is carrying eighty-two em
ployes, just the number allowable un
der the state laws. At the same time
the senate, whose committee on ac
counts indicated it would use its own
judgment in the matter, has seventy
employes—or twenty-two in excess of
the number allowed under statutory
The difference amounts to about $60
a day or $360 a week, and figured on
the several weeks that the extra list
has been carried will reach close to
$3,000 over and above the legal
amount allowed help for that body
during the session.
Thus the senate with 33 per cent as
large a membership as the house is
1 using 85 per cent of the number of
employes used by tne lower body.
When the matter was being thresh
ed over at great length early in the
session the auditor objected to the
heavy list sent up front the house. La
ter on he made a similar kick about
the senate's extra employes. The at
I torney general, who was called upon
| for an opinion in the matter, decided
that the legislature was its own judge
in the matter and that if it voted sums
! sufficient to pay the employes it could
have as large a list as it desired. The
| house, however, stood pat and pruned
its list to conform with the legal re
quirements. This the senate refused
to do, the members of the expendi
tures committee declaring that it
would “pay as many as it used and
would use all it wanted to.”
Bills Passed by the House.
IT. R. 552, by Hostetler: Teach sub
ject of food and diet in eighth, ninth
and tenth grades of public schools.

To Support Extension Bill.
In an unanimous decision announced

The regents’ statement outlines the

of the institution to get behind the bill
and to urge that an adequate appro
priation, provided for in the house
measure, be made for carrying on ex

Franchise Bill Quickly Killed.

the senate committee on roads in sup
port of the measure, and Senator
Heasty, who introduced it asserted he
did not care much swhat became of it,
as it was introduced merely by re
quest. Many members joined Senator
Wolz in a successful effort to see that
the measure was quickly slain.
Tabby Scandalized Monks of Mount
Athos, Forbidden to All Females, by
Becoming Mother of a Family.
Salonica, European Turkey. — Eu
rope's latest and smallest republic has
grown out of the Balkan war. It is
Mount Athos, the sacred peninsula
near Salonica.
It contains nothing but 21 ancient
monasteries founded by Russians.
Greeks, Bulgarians and Servians in
the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
All overhang the cliffs of the Aegean
sea and the monks go up and down
from the shores in baskets worked on
pulleys by their brethren.
So sacred is the peninsula that no
female is allowed therein, not even a
cow or hen. Neither milk, cheese nor
eggs can be had.
Some time ago peasants employed
by the monks to help till the land
An Ancient Monastery on Mount
| smuggled in wives disguised in trous
ers, but the monk; angrily expelled all
S they detected.
The abbot of the older Russian mon
astery kept a cat. which recently dis
graced the island by having kittens.
All the monks held a court to try her,
j declared she had broken the sacred
| rules and had her drowned. The ab
j hot was reprimanded for taking in the
cat before finding out whether it was 1
I eligible for admittance.
Some of the monasteries are very j
i strict and never allow the inmates to
! wash even their hands or faces, or to
j go outside the gardens, which are said
to be very beautiful. Others contain
j the oldest Greek manuscripts in the
: w-orld, supposed to be able to fill gaps
in the Epistles and other parts of the
New Testament.
The idea of making Mount Athos a
republic came from Russia, anxious to
keep her influense in Macedonia, and
is unwelcome to Bulgaria, tired of tu
telage and used to consider the church
as a political factor, now of less im
portance than before. But the other
allies pressed Russia’s proposal be
cause they felt jealous of Bulgarian
domination in that sacred territory.
Delegates from all the allied states
will meet in Salonica under the Rus
sian consul and draw up the new re
public’s laws. The patriarch of the
Bulgarians, who hitherto has lived in
| Constantinople, probably will live on
i the peninsula.
Fame of Teacher in Cleveland Normal
School Brings Offer From
the East.
New York.—Dr. Jean Dawson, a
woman teacher in the Normal Train
ing school of Cleveland, is recom
| mended as an official fly swatter to
the board of estimate.
The appointment is urged by Dr.
V\ illiam Henry Hale, superintendent
of public baths in Brooklyn.
Dr. Hale says Dr. Dawson has rid
Cleveland of flies, which now is known
as "the flyless city.’’ Bring her to
New York, he urges, and she will
work wonders here, too. His letter to
the board reads:
"To get the best results work must
begin before spring, so that the com
paratively few mother flies who sur
vive may be killed before laying eggs.
Success can only be obtained by co
operation of several city departments
with the health department.
"As Miss Dawson has demonstrated
an efficiency for this great work,
which is comparable with the elimina
tions of yellow fever from the Pan
ama canal zone. 1 suggest that she be
hired by the city."
The board intends to let Comptroll

to all suffering women to tell what Lydia
E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound did
forme. One year ago I found myself a
terrible sufferer. I had pains in both
sides and such a soreness I could scarcely
straighten up at times. My back ached,
I had no appetite and was so nervous I
could not sleep, then I would be so tired
mornings that I could scarcely get
around. It seemed almost impossible
to move or do a bit of work and I
thought I never would be any better
until I submitted to an operation, but
my husband thought I had better write
to you and I did so, stating my symp
toms. I commenced taking Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and
soon felt like a new woman. I had no
pains, slept well, had good appetite and
could do almost all my own work for a
family of four. I shall always feel that
I owe my good health to your Vegetable
Compound.”—Mrs. Hayward Sowers,
Cary, Maine.
