SPE Simian Protests Against Wear ing Guard's Uniform. vKeeper Baldy" Begins to Disrobe in Tree as Big Crowd Follows and Cheers Balked at Ana conda and Pythons. New York. Keeper Baldy Is the newest name for Baldy , the smartest ape in the zoological gardens in Bronx park. This intelligent simian appeared In the regulation keeper's uniform cap , blue suit , white collar and shoes the only departure being a large red necktie , which flowed below his chin. And everything fitted the ape , for his suit was made to order by a well- known clothing house on the same model used for the regular attendants In the park. A tailor made a special trip to the park to take his measure , and the only trouble Baldy caused was through his desire to investigate the tape measure. Baldy did not balk when Engelholm , his keeper , and Charles Snyder , who Is In charge during Mr. Ditmars' ab sence , were putting on the "glad rags" ; that Is , he did not protest until Snyder tried to put on his shoes. As fast as one was slipped on he would unfasten the other and send it sail ing through the air , to the detriment of numerous glass jars and window panes. He pulled back again when the white collar was adjusted about his neck. When all was ready for Baldy to be escorted from his room In the private house one last touch was given to his toilet to make him a swell. His cap , bearing the gold letters "N. Y. Zoo logical Society , " was set jauntily on one side of his head , and then Snyder and Engelholm essayed into the open with the new keeper. Instantly a crowd gathered , and Baldy had fully a thousand persons following him about the grounds while he was being Introduced to the other Inmates. It was the first time In the history of V the zoo that an Inmate had ever paid his respects to his neighbors. All went well until Baldy became frightened at the big anaconda and the regal pythons In the reptile house. He screeched and pulled so hard that his hat fell off and his collar worked Itself up to his eyes. He did not like alligators , either , and was shortly tak en out of , the house. Jhen he became possessed of seven devils of mls- hjeyousness , and with a sudden tug he escaped from the fwo keepers , topped on to a fence and the next minute had grabbed the lowest limb of a small tree and swung himself up to jt From his perch h | grimacingly surveyed the crowd befow' i All the coaxing of the keepers failed to make the ape come down. They were afraid his new tailormade suit would be torn to pieces. Baldy took off his hat and examined it closely. He liked the gold lettering on it. Then he gave It an awful bang on the tree limb , and the keepers expected to see Its crown drop out The large crowd roared with delight Horrors ! Baldy suddenly felt the desire to do one of his giant swings on the tree limb. "Good-by coat , " said Engelholm. "Good-by , trousers , " said Snyder. Baldy heaved one way and then an other , kicked against the tree with his new shoes and did such fptastic stunts that the clothes were strained to the utmost He unwittingly let one leg hang down. Snyder grabbed it , and then Baldy came down with the tug. He was brushed off , his suit was examined to see If It had been torn and he was led around to other cages. He was captured none too soon , for he was about to begin disrobing. Leaving the crowd that had formed behind him , the ape visited dozens of the Inmates of the Zoo. He pulled the tail of an aoudad , scolded In piercing wails the bears as they lined up to have a look at the unusual keeper , AEROPLANE TO OUST THE ARAB STEED YORK. Sheik Hassan Ben Ali , an agent of the government ot NEW Morocco , reached this city the other day on the liner Olympic. He has a couple of picturesque attendants with him and was himself habited in the garb of the desert and was met at the pier by a representative of the Curtjs aeroplane interests. For the sheik comes here to purchase two of the ma chines. The Arab is somewhat reticent regarding the manner in which his government proposes to use the biplanes , but admits that , for" scouting pur poses in a level country like Morocco , they would be found superior to the horse. So farewell , my Arab steed. and finally was led back to the monkey house and had a chance to see his fellow primates. There was not a monkey , large or small , that did not come up to the bars as Baldy paraded up and down outside. "They're Jealous , " said Snyder. Mimi , one of Baldy's best friends In the monkey house , and who dines with him daily , showed fine scorn for the ape in his clothes. Baldy called to her from outside and she answered back. Dr. Gardner should have been there to Interpret it. Fred Engelholm said that in her vernacular Mimi was saying : "You're a fine looking mutt ! What ? " A few minutes later the ape was re lieved of his keeper's uniform , and was tickled to get rid of it. Society Woman Saws Wood. Great Barrington , Mass. Miss Isa bel Curtis , a wealthy society woman , of Boston , who is staying at the Willis Inn , Stockbridge , has sawed two cords of wood in three weeks just for exer cise. She chopped the wood In one of the forests near Stockbridge last winter. She says she can chop down a tree as quickly as a man. Miss Cur tis frequently takes long walks , going from Lenox to Stockbridge and back In a forenoon , a twelve-mile trip. HONEY SNAKE CLIMBS TREE Pennsylvania State Zoologist Believes Story of Sweet-Toothed Reptile Cases on Record. Harrisburg , Pa. F"of. H. A. Sur face , state economic zoologist , is xnuch interested in a story that reach ed him from Kennerdell , Venango county , to the effect that three men in cutting down a bee tree discov ered in opening it-that a big blacksnake - snake had invaded the bees' nest and had devoured almost all the honey. The bee hole was 40 feet from the ground , and the men averred that the snake , attracted by the honey , had climbed the tree , had its feast , and when discovered by the bees they set upon him to drive him away , and literally covered the snake when' found. Professor Surface was asked if it were possible for a black snake to climb a tree to that height and if it was ever known to eat honey. "Yes , " said Professor Surface , "I can fully believe that story , for I be lieve that it ! possible that a blacksnake - snake could climb a tree. Further more , If there was a bees' nest in that tree the snake could get into the bee hole and eat the honey. I don't believe , however , that it would eat all the honey , for It would be cun ning enough to know that by doing so it would drive the bees away. As to this particular snake being cov ered with bees I think they were wreaking their vengeance on it by trying to sting it to death , which is pretty difficult , for a blacksnake's liide is pretty tough. I have known ( of snakes that got into beehives and were stung to death. "As to the snakes' eating honey , I have known that , too. The snake finds the unsealed honey and sips it out of the comb. There are a good many records of snakes being found in beehives ; but this is the first in stance of one being found hunting honey in a bee tree. "We know that blacksnaltes climb trees , and it is possible that this one got in the tree , and when the bees found it they turn ed on the intruder. I have myself seen bees turn on mice when they Intruded in the hives , and sting them to death , and I have seen the remains of small snakes In beehives. Of course , the snake does not bite Into the comb , but sips the honey v/ith its tongue , and in that way cleans out the cells. " Clothesline His Life Net. New York. Christie Caron , three , stole from the side of his mother while she was visiting in the apart ments on the third floor of 2102 Third avenue , climbed to the rear fire es cape and dropped to the courtyard. Mrs. Caron thought her son was killed. Dr. Donnelly , who came from Harlem hospital , said if Christie had a scratch he couldn't find it "Saved by that net of clotheslines , " remarked the doctor. "He must have hit a dozen on his dive to the pave ment. " Christie's mother carried him to their home , 169 East One hundred and Tenth street , where the family doctor congratulated her.

Two mill hand \vho is a millioner and blousemaker in his spare time has just come to light at Preston. His name is John Jackson , and so succcessful has his millinery been that he now wishes to give up weaving for it. He has many orders , coming from as far as Canada. At his home in Hammond street , Prestion , where he lives with his mother and sisters , Jackson said that his first millinery success was at a local bazar. "My heart is In making and- doing up smart hats and blouses , " he said , "and I was delighted when I won a prize for hat trimming at that ba zar. zar."My "My proudest moment was when two bonnets and four hats of my own trimming were worn at the wedding of one of my sisters. "I buy my own materials , flowers , ribbons , feathers , sprays , leaves , etc. , and I can usually estimate the cost of trimming a hat to a farthing for a customer. I study milliners' windows dews for ideas. I just see what the latest fashions are and copy or try to improve them. " INDIAN RENEWS OLD QUEST Washington Rancher Will Again Start on Search for Daughter He Lost Over Six Years Ago. Husum , Wash. To again search for the body of his lost child in the wilds of the Cascade mountains , 25 miles northwest of here , is the intention of Johnny Cayuse , an Indian rancher liv ing four miles northwest of Husum. Johnny reluctantly retold the story of the sudden disappearance of his daughter , Katie , six years ago , while he with his family were camped near the cave region west of Trout lake , during the huckleberry picking sea son. Nearly a thousand Indians gath er in that region every year to pick berries and indulge in amusements. It was after one of these festive oc casions in August that the daughter of Johnny disappeared as if swallowed by the earth. Parties searched for weeks for the lost , but no trace ot her could be found. The supposition was that the girl had been killed by some wild animal or had fallen into one of the caves. Another Indian su perstition was that the girl was lured by a monster of the lake to its watery home. Another Fish Story. Rhinelander , . Wis. D. Satcher of St. Charles , Minn. , who is spending his vacation at Tomahawk Lake , caught a 22-pound muskellunge in an uusual manner. He had hooked the big fish , and , being unable to haul it into the boat , shot at it. The bullet cut the line in two. Not desiring to lose the giant fish , Batcher leaped into the wa ter. Diving , h ! caught the line and dragged the "muskie" to shore in spite of its struggles. . * iEN HAUR'S the extra reverence In wearln" sheen two sizes owcr sma' ?

So many palatable dishes can be made from apples that one need have no monotony in the use of this queen of fruits. When short of a variety in the vege table line , did you ever take a few tart apples , two or three onions and a slice of good salt pork , and make an appetizing dish which , if not very digestible , is most savory ? Put the pork , diced , into a frying pan , and when a nice brown add the sliced onions and apples , with a very little water ; cook until tender , add a dash of pepper , salt and a tablespoonful of sugar , if the apples are very tart. Apples put into a baking dish with a little water , brown sugar and but ter make delicious apple sauce when baked. Here Is a fine filling for sandwiches or cakes , and the beauty of it is that it is ready without any preparation. For every pound of the fruit , peeled and sliced , take twice its weight in sugar , half a vcup of water and the grated rind of a lemon. Cook slowly three hours , until thick , then add the juice of the lemon and cook fifteen minutes longer , stirring continually to avoid burning. Add chopped nut meats and no richer filling could be desired. Brown Betty Is perhaps too well known to repeat yet it Is a most dainty dish. Put a layer of chopped apples , brown sugar , cinnamon for flavoring and a layer of bread crumbs in a buttered dish ; repeat , adding the crumbs , buttered by melting a tablespoonful - spoonful of butter and stirring them In it Moisten with water , and bake. One charm of this pudding is that it uses crumbs. Another delicious cake filling Is made from a cupful of grated apple and the whites of two eggs ; flavor and sweeten to taste. Whip until stiff arid smooth. Apple dumpling Is never too old- fashioned to be rejoiced In. Wrap the short biscuit dough around a cored apple and bake. Serve with cream and sugar. This may be steamed as well. well.A A bird's nest pudding Is an easy des sert to prepare. It is simply sliced ap ple put into a deep dish and covered with a batter and baked. When served turn upside down , sugar and butter the apple , dust with nutmeg and serve.

Webster 'defines hospitality as re ceiving and entertaining strangers with kindness. To most of us the idea of hospitality begins and ends with our friends , forgetting that the good book tells us "be not forgetful to entertain strangers ; or thereby some have entertained angels una wares. " The more we give , the more we have ; which may not mean of worldly wealth , but It certainly is true of true hospitality. There always being two sides to a question , the entertained as well as the entertainer has requirements to meet in order to make a visit enjoy able. For the Hostess. First , I shall invite my friend for a certain defiaite time. Second , I shall allow my guest to have a little time to get acquainted with her own personality , not wear her out with entertainment Third , I shall endeavor to serve food that is both agreeable and diges tible and not treat her Idiosyncra sies as mere foibles. For the Guest. First , I shall announce the limit ol my visit and not over-stay my time. Second , I shall be on time for meals and keep my belongings in my own room. Third , I shall never allow my hos tess to guess "that It doesn't run in our family to like , cabbage. " I shall eat what is set before me , or perish In the attempt. Fourth , I shall share In the dally du ties of the household , the amount de pending upon the number of maids kept by my hostess. I can at least care for my own room. Fifth , I shall endeavor to prove to my hostess that I came to see her , instead of the scenery. Sixth , I shall on leaving make some return for my entertainment , either an invitation or gift , and shall be careful to leave none of my personal effects to be sent after me. For those who Impose upon hospi tality that Is another story. All Over the Place. "Why are gossips so often consid ered authorities ? " "Because whatever they say , goes. " Social Distinction. In some parts of the south the darkies are still addicted to the old- style country dance in a big hall , with the fiddlers , banjoists and other mu sicians on the platform at one end. At one such dance held not long ago in an Alabama town , when the Qddlers had duly resined their bows and taken their places on the plat form the floor manager rose. "Git yo' partners fo' de nex * dance ! " he yelled. "All you ladies an' gennul- mens dat wears shoes an' stockin's , take yo' places in de middle of de room. All you ladies an' gennulmens flat wears shoes an' no stockin's , take you' place immejitly behin' dem. An' yo' barefooted crwd , you jes' jig It round in de corners. " Lippincott's Vlagazine. Coachman 'Had to Earn Bequest. A quaint paragraph appears in the will of Mrs. Julie Hall of Brighton , England. At the reading of the will the other day it was found that she had bequeathed 100 to her coach man , provided he is in her service at her death , and "if I do not die through or from the effects of a car riage accident when he is the driver.
