WASHINGTON. Dec. 5. -The Gridiron
club efitertained mora than 160 guests at Its
December dinner at the Arlington hotel
tonight. The evening was replete with
unique features, In which public events
and tha alleged ambitions and aspirations
of statesmen were made subjects of bur
lesque and good-natured ridicule. .The, In
itiation of three new members afforded an I
opportunity to picture the Inside of a
newspaper office In which the staff dis
cussed methods of Interviewing many of
the guests present. The Republic of Pan
ama suddenly appeared at the dinner and
was recognised by the republican elephant
amidst the braya of tho democratic donkey.
The Gridiron club flying machine was
brought In and a number of prominent
guests were given an opportunity to test
It, the course, being to the AVhlte House,
but all met with a mishap before reaching
the goal. Moving pictures Illustrated some
recent events, political and social. A New
York policeman appeared and hung a light I
directly over the place where Leader Mur
phy of Tammany and Mayor-elect Me
ridian were sitting. There were a number
of brilliant and witty speeches and the
evening was Interspersed with topical
la Memory of Aaala aad Smith.
Amidst tho festivities the lights were
turned down and large plctunes of William
B. Annln and Hub T. Smith, members who
died during the Iant year, were thrown on
a screen, and a short and impressive eulogy
was delivered by Major John M. Carson,
In which reference waa made to the fact
that Mr. Ar.nln waa once president of the
c'.ub and Mr. Smith one of Us valued musi
cal members. The picture faded away
and aa the club sang one of Hub Smith's
song the lights again flashed , and . the

ANIMALS BETTER THAN MEN
French Baroness Devote Her Tim
and Money to Caring for
(Copyright, 190J. by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS. Dec. 6. (New York World -Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) The Baroness
d'Herpent, Ilk Robert U. Ingersoll, has de
cided that tha more she know pt men the
more she llkea dogs. She spends her entire
time In rescuing the dogs of the streets.
To such an extreme does she carry her cult
that babies are her pet aversion. Va 1902
James Gordon Bennett founded at Qenne-
vllllers. near Paris, a refuge for animal.
Since that time it has been taken In charge
by th eccentric baroneaa, . who la a cousin
of. the French novelist "Gyp" (Countess
de Martel). The Baroaesa d'Herpent de
clares that her disgust with humanity In
general led her to befriend animals, better
worth trusting than mankind. Her house
la fairly running over with doga and cata
picked up by her or her attendant or aeftt
there by people who pick then) up In Paris.
If anybody in the city find a stray animal
he has only to telegraph hia "tlnd" to Gen-
nevllllers and the barontns . Immediately
sends for it.
' The Qordon-liennetl fund la not sufficient
to cover 'all the expense of the baroneea'
continually Increasing family and oba
creatures that no one else wouia nave in
net own private rooms.
In appearance the baroness Is short.
light, straight and very active, though
more than M years old. She Is always
found In work-day attire, large shoes,
gardener's apron, and short skirts, which.
added to her extremely supercilious ex
pression, makw a very original and Inter
esting figure. . .
; BAKING POWDER MAN FIGHTS
i William Zlealer Herki Tecnalenlltles
to Avoid Returning to MIs
soarl for Trial.
JEFFER80N CITY. Mo., Dec. I The
question, aa to who Is prosecuting attorney
of Cole county will be a matter of conse
quence !n the hearing of William Zelgler,
baking powder manufacturer, who Is
wanted' hero on a charge of bribery, when
the extradition proceedings shall be heard
before Governor Odell at Albany Monday.
After the Indictment was returned against
Zelgler, Judge Maxell suspended Prosecut
ing Attorney R. P. Stone from office and
ippolnted F. M. Brown to serve until the
chargea agnlnst Stone had been acted on.
When the extradition papers for Zelgler
were prepared. Brown signed affidavits, as
prosecuting attorney, declaring that Zelg
ler was a fugutlve from justice. Attorneys
for Zelgler have now secured copies of the
record showing the suspension of Store,
and will use them In the fight before Gov
ernor Odcll In attempting to show that
Brown la not the prosecuting attorney of
Cole county, and hence had no lawful
right to make the affidavit. They will at
tempt to show thst Stone was Illegally
removed from office, and hence Brown'e
appointment Is null end void.

The Riant Foundation of Health.
Proper food Is th foundation of health.
People can eat Improper food for a time
and not feel any 111 results until there Is a
sudden collapse of the digestive organs,
and then all kinds of trouble follows.
Th proper way out of the difficulty ia
to shift to the pure, scientific food, Grape
Nuts, for It rebuilds from the foundation
up. A New Hampshire woman says: "Ist
summer I waa suddenly taken with Indi
gestion and aevere stomach trouble and
oould not eat food without great pain; my
stomach waa ao sore I could hardly move
about. This kept up until I was ao mis
erable life waa not worth llvfng. ,
"Then a friend finally,, after much argu
ment, induced me to try Orape-Nuta food
and quit my regular food. Although I had
but little faith I commenced to use It, and
great was my surprise to find that I could
eat It without the usual pain and distress
In my stomach. So I kept on using Grspe-
Nuts and soon a marked Improvement was
hown, for my stomach waa performing Ita
regular work in a normal way without pain
or distress. ,
'Very soon th yellow coating disap
peared from my tongue, the dull, heavy
feeling In my head disappeared and my
or Ind felt light and clear; the languid, tired
feeling left, and altogether I felt aa If I
had been rebuilt. Strength and weight
came back rapidly and I went back to my
work with renewed ambition.' Today I am
a new woman In mind as well as body and
I ewe It all to this natural "food Orape

Attorney McDonald asked the Judge to

000 to meet the many demands for subsidies
and charities made upon the head of the
church. Cardinal Del Val Is convinced that
he will aucceed In raising the necessary
amount from the contributions of the faith
ful Without the necessity of making Inroads
in the capital of about $5,000,000 Invested
Under the late pope, and his enemies are
beginning to admire the energy apd cour
age he ha displayed In taking charge of
the dilapidated finances of the Vatican and
wish him the greatest success.
Among the Important reforms projected
by Plus X 1 that In the education given
In tha seminaries or colleges, for the train
ing of priests. Every diocese, no matter
how small, possesses one, and for want of
funds the Instruction In some of them has
not besn what waa desired. It Is the desire
of the pope that the curriculum In all
these Institutions be charged to conform
with that of the college In Rome. He has
ordered that, a special class be instituted
In every seminary for the, study of, ancient
art; that priests may learn 1 to take care
of all monuments, ancient and modern, ex
isting In their partshss. f "" " - '
Another favorite project of Plus X is that
of a Mir catechism, more' In keeping with
the times and easier for children to mem
orise. This reform will be popular In the
United States, where for many yeara It has
been a general complaint of tho clergy that
th catechism used In the Sunday schools
