It is insurance against sweat shop and
tenement goods, and against disease. . . .
It takes a wealthy man to get sweet
revenge and at the same time heap
coais of fire upon the heads of those
who have disappointed him, if they
have not absolutely abused him. The
duke of Sutherland has turned the ta
bles upon the county council of Staf
fordshire by donating his princely es
tate on the River Trent to the county
for use as an institution for higher
Some months ago, it may be remem
bered, the duke publicly announced
that owing to the polluted condition of

abode for himself and his family and.
therefore, he had decided to close it
The condition of the river is due to
the use made of it by the potteries
which are centered at Stoke-on-Trent.
The duke had appealed in vain to the
Staffordshire county council to adopt
measures that would abate the nui
sance. That democratic body would do noth
ing. It did not propose to interfere
with an industry which provided many
poor people with a living just to make
things more comfortable for a duke
and his family.
If he could not put up with the
stench and run the risk of typhoid, as
humble folk had to, why he could go
and live somewhere else. So the duk
turned out, the county council tri
umphed and the Trent continued td
flow its polluted course.
But the duke had a card up his
sleeve and he has just played it. He
has presented Trentham hall to thj
county council for the purpose of es
tablishing there a college for higher
The gift is a princely one. It cost
$750,000 to build it many years a0 and
at present prices it. would cost consid
erable over $1,000,000 to duplicate it,
Standing in the midst of a spaciou
park, and surrounded by beautiful par
dens and conservatories it is one o;
the finest show places in the kingdom.
Of course the county council cannot
reject such i magnificent donation. l
it did it would cause no end of a nowl.
Metaphorically speaking, it will navrj
to go on its knees and humbly thanij
the duke for it. And after doing that
it will have to take proper steps to se
cure the purification of the Trent be
fore the college can be set a-going, lor
obviously, in these days at least, the
most humble of students could not b?
expected to pursue their studies in a
place that had been pronounced unsafe
for a duke to live in.-. And that u
where the duke's triumph will come in.
It is uncharitable to estimate the
value of a gift by what it costs the
giver to part with it. But it is a 1'r.ci
that the duke makes no great sacrifice
in parting with Trentham hall. He has
several other residences, three oi
which, at least Stafford house in Lon
don, Dunrobin castle in Scotland anii
Lilleshall in Shropshire kings might
count themselves fortunate in owning!
The duke has more land than any
other of the king's subjects. His es-
tates exceed in area that of any county
in England, except Yorkshire, Lincoln
shire and Devonshire. He owns aboui
one-sixteenth of Scotland 1,176,345
acres to be as exact as Doomsday booh
permits besides 30.000 or 40,000 acres
in Staffordshire and Shropshire.
From Dunrobin castle, his seat ic
Sutherland, he can walk 50 miles in a
straight line without stepping off hi-i
own property. But he generally pre
fers using hi3 own private railways

Entire Change of Program Every Week
, Maharaja Gaikwr, Indian prince
and ruler of Baroda, together with .his
pretty wife, the Maharani Gaekwar,
has come to the United States to see
the country and learn all he can for
the betterment of hi3 own country and
people. This purpose reveals the char
acter of the nan, for he is as progres
sive as he is good and as good as they
make them over in India, and by this
we do not mean to imply that Mahar
aja's goodness is of a mediocre kind.
As a boy he was known for his up
rightness of character, and this qual
ity has not diminished with the years
In fact, as the story goes, it was hit
goodness as a boy which led to his se
selection as the ruler of Baroda. It
seems that the former Gaikwar was
deposed by the British government for
gross misrule, and as there happened
to be no direct heir to the throne, ac
cording to the Hindu custom, the selec
tion of a ruler devolyed upon the
Maharani, the wife of the deposed
ruler, who has been obliged to flee
from her husband to escape death at
the bottom of a well. After consulta
tion with her guru, or godfather, she
decided that the new Gaikwar sbould
be chosen from among the three best
boys in -Baroda. From those three
most excellent boys the present visitor
to the United States was accepted as
the one of greatest promise to wield
the sword of state wisely.
That this contest of good boys
proved a judicious procedure few
among the Maharaja's 2,000,001) sub
jects would now question. Under his
rule the state has progressed titeadily,
and the city of Baroda has been so
modernized with handsome public
buildings, wide streets, and pleasure
gardens that it has ceased to be the
typical Hindu capital of the picturesque
though malodorous description. Per
sonally Maharaja Gaikwar is a man
of much force of character.
Maharaja Gaikwar rises early and
proceeds first to distribute alms to his
personal Brahmins, or, as we would
say, private chaplains. The amount
of the daily gift is about S15, for
which the Brahmins offer a short
prayer in his behalf and presence. On
such festivals as the day of of?rings
for the dead and the day of birth
day thanksgiving he attends public
worship in the palace temple. During
the setson of mourning all such cere
monies are omitted. After his pooja,
or devotions, the Maharaja partakes
of light breakfast of bread, fruit,
and milk. Then he fides or drives for

the members of his staff. This meal

ace for reading of a serious character,
is served in European fashion, 'though
no alcoholic liquors are offered, and
needless to say no dish comes upon
the table which bears the slightest re
lationship to beef.
From noon until about four Gaikwai
attends to affairs of state. The heads
of the different departments make!
their reports, he revises sentences of
the high court, and discusses the gen
eral policy of his government. The
Maharaja then visits the Maharani in

household is not an inclosed quarter
of the palace, but merely the apart
ments occupied by his wife. Toward!

Maharaja Gaikwar possesses th
most costly piece of jewelry in the
world. In dazzling magnificence it
never has been, or is ever likely to be,
excelled. This treasure is in the form
of a shawl or cloak of woven pearls,
edged with a deep border of arabesque
designs of diamonds, rubies, emeralds,
and sapphires. Originally it. was in
tended as a covering for the tomb of
Mahomet, but somehow it was divert
ed into a former Gaikwar's posses
sion. In cold figures the stones alone
have been appraised at $5,000,000.
