President Tells How He Enjoys Strolls
t Busy Streets
Talking as 1l lie were merely a
friend who had dropped in for a short
chat and not the president of the
United States Mr Taft recently re
vealed much of his personal side to
the newspaper men of the capital at
tin informal reception given him at the
National Press club in Washington
Prepared for a stroll along Pennsyl
vania avenite and several of the other
busy thoroughfares of the city which
he took after he left the club the
president declared he found much
pleasure In walking and looking in the
shop windows lie said he enjoyed
seeing some person give him a Jong
look and then look away while the
nest person would give a second look
then poke his companion in the ribs
and In the dignity paid by Americans
to high office call out Ilello Taft
Speaking of the White House and its
duties the president said there was a
sense of isolation in life there that
nobody just drops in on one in a
neighborly way but all the callers
come by engagement
As to getting tired out with work
the president said that the preparation
of messages for congress was the
in discussing the qualifications for of
fice of men recommended or rather
the claims they could make as to why
they should be appointed was not real
Host Who Entertained Colonel Roose
velt In Africa Says So
W N McMillan who entertained
former President Theodore Roosevelt
on his ranch near Nairobi East Africa
last June passed through Kansas City
Mo recently on his way to New
York He had been visiting on the
Pacific coast
While at my ranch Colonel Roose
velt did not read an American news
paper or magazine said Mr McMil
lan lie continually refused to dis
cuss national or international politics
although many residents of the neigh
borhood questioned him on these sub
jects I am here for pleasure was
his answer to one and all When I
return to the United States I will say
what I think about the situation
Colonel Roosevelt is a fair shot
not an extraordinary marksman con
tinued Mr McMillan Kermit is a
better shot than his father as Colo
nel Roosevelt admits to every one ex
cept Kermit He is afraid it would
make the young man think too much
of himself to tell him so It does not
however take any wonderful marks

Carnegie Explorers Discovery May Be
the Piscatory Missing Link
A tin box marked Handle With
Care arrived at the Carnegie insti
tute in Pittsburg the other day con
taining a specimen of scaleless aquatic
life called popularly a fish with legs
found by Dr John Haseman at Ma
noas Brazil
The specimen received said Dr
Holland director of the institute is a
scaleless animal which is blind lias a
dorsal cartilaginous cord instead of a
true skeleton has teeth in a small
head mouth on the under side and a
protruding jaw and a dorsal skin flap
resembling a fin apparently the link
between the salamander and a fish
The discovery is most important to
Dr Haseman found the specimen at
the junction of the Rio Negro and the
Amazon recently while on an explor

President Tafts Advice to Boy So
prano Who Desires to Be Tall
Albert Hole the English boy so
prano called at the White House the
other day to see President Taft al
though he owes allegiance to King Ed
ward Albert is only about three feet
high and one thing which he greatly
desires is to be tall He told the
president that and got this advice
Well Albert you want to eat lots
of pudding That will make you tall

United States Government
To Have Branches In All the Repub
lics Unanimously Favored by Our
Southern Neighbors Angragate of
Their Estimated Loans During Next
Twenty Years S65000C030
That a Pan American bank with
branches at the capitals of the South
and Central American republics and
headquarters In New York eny is the
safest and most direct way for Amer
ican capital to participate in bond
dotation is the consensus of official
opinion in Washington
The supporters of the project in-
hardest he was called on to do that u - upunac
fi i c i i J f note All declare there is no limit
tiiivt Ul 1UUI UUUIO il Uil UL OfCUt
to the gilt edged opportunities which
the southern continent offers to Amer
ican capital and only diplomatic lim
its prevent them from stating in so
many words that their respective coun
tries would rather borrow from the
United States than abroad
The Hondurau loan of approximate
ly -1000000 through John P Morgan
last August is the first of the so called
Pan American loans to receive official
approval from the state department
While behind this approval there is
the spirit of the new diplomacy which
forces finances to the fore Secretary
Knox is following his fixed policy of
eliminating Europe from Central and
South American affairs a policy that
is not distasteful to the American re
publics if admissions made by well
posted officials are a criterion
Will Borrow 650000000
A canvass recently made shows that
the extent of these financial operations
is of large proportions The amount
involved is estimated at J30000000
The sums that make it up will be bor
rowed progressively during a period of
twenty years
Semiofficial figures obtained show
that the loans will be divided as fol
Argentina 200000000 Bolivia 33000000
Chile 173000000 Ecuador 50000000 Hon
duras 30000000 Panama o0000000 Peru
00000000 Venezuela 20000000 with the
remaining 0000000 taken up by the
smaller republics in this category Colom
bia 3000000 Costa Rica 10000000 Do
minican Republic S000000 Guatemala
10030000 Salvador 12000000 and Uru
guay 5000000
Panama will probably require more
than 30000000 especially when the
canal is in full operation owing to in
creases in land values and the neces
sity of improving the adjacent terri
tory on both sides under the republics
Officials including the diplomatic
representatives of the above named
countries do not deny that these loans
cannot very well be carried out with
out the aid of a Pan American bank
whose rate of exchange can equal that
of London and Paris It is said also
that it will not be one of the obliga
tions of the lender if the lender be an
American bank to pay in gold as the
new bank would have arrangements to
honor any other currency at full mar
ket value
Needed For Panama Canals Success
That the United States cannot very
well hope to make a commercial suc
cess of the Panama canal without such
a central international banking institu
tion is another admission made by of
ficials It is cited that Great Britain
has the advantage of branch banks at
Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt in
order to have every banking facility
with which to carry out its enormous
traffic through the Suez canal Com
pilative statistics based upon the ton
nage that goes through the Suez and
which will find it more convenient to
use the Panama canal and other data
furnished by the department of com
merce labor and navigation of the Eu
ropean governments show that the
Panama canal will not have to wait as
long as the Suez canal did to reach its
highest development It will mean
only two years at most to rearrange
travel schedules shifting the routes
from the Mediterranean to the Panama
Tolls and other charges besides
drafts and general exchange of com
mercial paper made necessary at two
ports of the importance that Colon
and Panama will reach as soon as the
canal is in operation make it neces
sary diplomats say for a bank of un
limited possibilities to be in operation
at either of these cities And such a
bank could very well be the Pan-American
bank operated by the wealthiest
banking intcts of the United States
as for instance the Moriran svndicate
whose branches in the European
money centers give them every advan
tage in Europe without dislodging
their gold reserves at headquarters
Owinr to the delicate relations be
tween the southern republics and the
likelihood that trouble may always
arise to sway to a certain extent the
credit or financial standing of any
of them it is said that the bank would
have to be an institution bonded by
the American government which
would thus be responsible for its ob
ligations It would also guarantee the
banking syndicate the protection of
the United States which isthenueleus
of the so called partnership between
the state department and financiers in
terested in the Pan American bant
His Lifo Was Saved by tho Chief of
the Quiah Tribe
The author or Heroes of Modern
Crusades the Rev Edward Cillint
M A at one lime inusur of Harrow
school says in his book Ilia he had
years ago l he privilege of meting the
king of the Juiah country Teltl Agu
inasong at Harrow The Qtiluli king
had been educated at St Augustines
college Canterbury and was able to
lecture to the Harrovians in good Eng
lish In his lecture he told a quaint
story which brings one nearer to the
weird lives of the Qulahs a small ag
ricultural and trading tribe of inof
fensive characters on the west coast
of Africa
In my country said the king we
have no prisons therefore if a cul
prit is brought to me 1 must chop off
something an ear or two a hand or a
foot and he goes home a sadder and
a wiser man Just before 1 left for
England a chief came to my hut
bringing a prisoner
What has he done friend I
He is a dangerous witch O king
He can turn himself Into an alligator
Pooh Nonsense I dont believe
that old fashioned stuff
Oh but we saw him do it down
by the big river
Indeed Well chief tell me all
about it You saw him yourself
I did We were hunting by the
banks of the river with our rifles
when all at once we saw a big alliga
tor lying on a rock in the river The
witch man was lying asleep In a ham
mock some fifty yards away Oh the
dangerous creature he is
Well king do not laugh with
your eyes like that for I am speaking
the truth I put up my rifle to shoot
the alligator but to our great fear as
soon as I fired this fellow rolled out
of his hammock and fell on the ground
and rubbed his back and swore he
was hurt
Now O king if this witch had
not been inside the alligator how
could he have been hurt when I fired
Gentlemen concluded the king I
see you are laughing with your eyes
but it is very difficult to rule over a
people untaught and given over to
What did I do Why if I had left
him free they would have killed him
as soon as I had gone on my ship so
I saved his life by chopping off his
left ear
The Game Vastly Different From That
of the Ninth Century
Chess is but a game a pastime a
relaxation but it has at times ab
sorbed the faculties of the intellectual
in every clime Perhaps the greatest
eulogy on the game was the remark
of Sir Walter Raleigh I do not wish
to live longer than I can play chess
It is certain that those who do not
lay the game are quite unable to
form any conception of the high intel
lectual delights experienced by the
chess enthusiast
The origin of chess has been sought
in vain The fact is the game has so
changed developed and improved
down the course of centuries that in
its present form it would not be rec
ognized by its inventor if there ever
was one The oldest chess problem on
record is thought to be that contained
in an ancient Persian manuscript at
tributed to Caliph Kalifen Mutasin
Billah who reigned in Bagdad A D
SV to S42 But the reader would have
to learn the old rules before it was
intelligible For example the queen
could make a move of only one square
at a time and that on a diagonal but
a queen promoted from a pawn was
allowed to make a move of two
squares diagonally The bishop had
no power over any square except the
third from which it stood on its own
diagonal line but it was allowed to
vault over any piece that happened to
be between In short it was a totally
different game Chess in the precise
form in which we know it and play it
today is a comparatively modern game

Amending a Proverb
There are a lot of silly proverbs
knocking about Take for instance
If pigs had wings they would fly
Now this is absurd if you like Do
you know what sized wings a pig
weighing eighty pounds would require
in order to fly They would measure
about thirty yards from tip to tip A
nice state of things to keep pigs in an
aviary with wings of that size The
proverb would run much better
If pigs could fly
Pork would be high
