ALLOTMENT OF CERTIFICATES
About Thirty-Five Million Dollar
Worth 'ald to Have Bees
WASHINGTON. Nov. 29. -The announce
ment by Secretary Cortelyou last night that
further subscriptions to the one-year treas
ury certificates would not be received I
regarded here as Indicating that the secre
tary considers the crisis in the money mar
ket to be practically over.
Offlcal figures have not yot been given
out at the treasury of the amount of the
certificates nllotted, nor has it been stated
whether further allotments would bp mada
for subscriptions already received. The
amount of the allotments made, however,
Is said to bo about $35,000,000. and this Is
probably the limit, unless strong reasons
are presented from banks which have al
ready made subscriptions why allotments
should be made to them.
All Individual subscriptions having been
rejected. It is anticipated that nearly the
whole of the W5,X,00 allotted will be used
to secure new Issues of bank notes. Aa
those Issues will be retired within less than
a year, they will not constitute a perma

JAPAN DOMED YOUNG TAFT
War Secretary's Son Had a Great Time
SEES SIGHTS OF THE CAPITAL
American Yonnsjstrr Gets a Doll as
a Oift and Hides About In aa
Imperial Carriage Japs
Charlie Taft, the young son of the secre
tary of war, had the time of his life In
Toklo whll his father was oiling the cogs
of diplomacy at garden parties, dinners
and audiences with the emperor during the
brief sojourn of the Taft party in the
Japanese capital lr.st month. Tha vernacu
lar press of Toklo recorded the adventures
of Charlie with as much gravity and at
tention to detail as they paid to the doings
of his father.
An occidental boy Is always a curiosity
to the children loving Japanese because he
Is so different from the Japanese boy, but
in Charlie's case the fact that he had a
distinguished father whom even the em
peror delighted to honor gave him super
lative Interest In the eyes of the crowd
on Toklo's streets. Slant eyed youngsters
In wooden clog pattered alongside of
Charlie's rickshaw whenever he went out
from the Imperial hotel, and men and
women crowded about every shop door that
he entered Just to get a look at the white
boy whose father, the papers said, would
Inevitably be tho next president of the
The Japanese government, mindful of
tho small things of courtesy, not only pro
vided entertainment of tha most lavish sort
for Mr. and Mrs. Taft, but also kept the
tall of Its eye on young Charlie and paid
him honor that few American boys In
Japan ever before received. A govern
ment carriage with the chrysanthemum of
the Imperial crest on Its panels and sup
plied with a government Interpreter and
a guide was put at tho disposal of Master
Charllo whenever he wanted it. Further
more, on ono occasion Charlie was the of
ficial guest and tha solo guest of the
Japanese government at tha Selyoken, a
renowned restaurant of. Toklo.
Charlie In Imperial Cnrrlajge.
On the great day when Chsrlle Taft
went out In the Imperial carriage with tho
official Interpreter and the official guide
the citizens of Toklo turned out to welcome
him wherever he passed. The Japanese
papers aay that when hi carriage rolled
down the Ghlnea, tbe main business street
of tbe capital, people paused to wave their
hats and give a "Banzai" to the stocky
youngster who sat stiffly up on tho bro
caded seat next to the official Interpreter.
Charlie never once forgot the suave dig
nity that Is hrs Inheritance from his father
and waved his hand and grinned pleas
antly In reply to the greetings.
The first place of Interest visited by the
earrings was the Mltsugoshl dry goods
store on the Ohlnza, one of the largest de
partment stores In Japan. Charlie was re
ceived at the door by one of the proprie
tors In person and escorted through the
store just as If he had been an American
millionaire Intent on buying curios to fill
He was Invited to the office of the pro
prietor and there nerved with tea accord
ing to the quaint ceremony of the Japanese
shopkeeper. Just as he was leaving the
store the proprietor who had acted as his
host came forward smiling and offered him
a gift, all wrapped up In the ceremonial
cloth that Is used te cover gifts and bound
with the peculiar gift tuft of red and gold
When the American boy opened the
package he found that the storekeeper had
given him a Japanese doll. The Hochi
aVhlmbun In describing the incident said
that "Master Taft accepted the beautiful
gift with grace."
Master Taft with a doll must have felt
very much a his father did when In the
course of his visit with Miss Roosevelt to
Japan In 1906 the enthusiastic citixen of
Shldzuoka roused him from Ms berth In
the train after midnight and gave him as
mark of their high esteem a marvelWvusIy
wrought bamboo bird cage.
Capture a Prise Mask,
The Imperial carriage rolled on to Uyeno
park, where Charlie's attention was caught
by the grinning and bewhlnkered nm.sks of
plaster composition in the windows of the
Hogvokudo fine arts shop. Immediately the
boy was out and trying on the red and
bronzo demon faces, to the great delight of
the crowd that rapidly gathered at the
open front of the shop.
Tlio Hochl described In detail the tengu
masV that partlculorly caught young
Charlie' fancy. He pulled out his roll of
yen and wanted to buy the tengu mask.
The shopkeeper bowed and aucked In his
breath and assured the son of th war
secretary of America that he would con
sider It an honor If only his visitor would
deign to accept the mask a an humblu
gift. Charlie accepted it graciously, as he
did the doll.
Then followed tha luncheon at the Sel
yoken. at which Charlie In his stacking
feet sat curled up on a mat with the official
Interpreter and the official guide support
ing him on either side and partook of Jap
anese delicacies. The managed of the Sel
yoken thoughtfully removed the chop
sticks and provided a knife and fork for
the unaccustomed fingers of the youngster.
The conscientious Japanese Journals gave
the menu of the official luncheon. There
was raw fish, which Charlie did not like;
bamboo sprouts, fish soup, chicken fric
cassed in Japanese style, all sorts of little
cskes and dainties. According to Japanese
custom what the boy could not eat of the
cakes and sugar candles was gathered Into
a handkerchief and carried home for future
Shows for the Finish.
Charllo Taft'a grand dav closed with a
visit to Asukusa park, the Coney Inland
of Toklo. where there aro jugglers, sword
dancers, all sorts of penny shows and tan;e
carp that will leap out of tbe water for
bits of rico biscuit. Here the boy went
from side show to theater snd back to sMe
show, scattering his copper sen with prodi
gal hand to ull tho tumblers, top spinners
and legerdemain artists In the place.
Charlie made a great hit in Asagnsa.
After that day In the imperial carriage
the son of the secretary made several other
voyages about the city Incognito. Ills
father would r.ot allow him to take advan
tage of the government carriage further,
but with a watchful guardian selected by
the government entertainers the youngster
made several rickshaw trips to the parks
and crowded streets of shops in the vicinity
of the Imperial hotel.
His chief achievement was the mastery
of two phrases in ttie Japanese language
and the ability to count to ten with true
staccato emphasis on th Ichi, r.i, sin, sehl,
etc. The polite "thank you" of Japan,
"arlgnato goilemasu," and Ihe "sayonara"
of farewell were Charlie's strong points.
He gave exhibitions of these linguistic ac
quirements at every opportunity.
When the tlm came for Secretary and
Mrs. Taft to take train at Shimbashl sta
tion for Kobe, where their steamer awaited
them to carry them on to Manila, Charlie s
farewell to Toklo was emphatic As the
train was pulling out of th ktatlon he
leaned far out of th window of hi com
partment and vigorously waved a silk
Japanese Cag to the group ef notables that
had aaaeuibled to bid farewell to thm secretary.

bold Idea, when IS years old, of trying
to earn his living aa a ona-legged gymnast
After years o hard prantlo h was able
to perform suoh exoallsnt fests on ths
hoiienntal bar and tdcycl ths h bsd tvo
dlftrulty In getting engagement at variety
theaters In America and this country.
After 'a whll he added trapes work to
his performance, but meeting with two or
three accidents, he decided to vary his
"turn" with jumping fests.
Mr. Frank is probably th best one
legged Jumper who has been seen on the
stsge. He thinks nothing of clearing a
horse fifteen hands high. Another of his
feats is to plaoe two barrels, each two and
one-half feet high sad abut one foot tn
diameter, close together, blindfold himself
and Jump from the floor lnt th flrt bar
rel, out of that Into th socond and out
again In thre rapid movements. On of
Mr. Frank's most difficult tricks, however,
is that of placing a bnrrel on the seat of
a chair. Jumping Into the barrel and doing
a back somersault out.
In the person of Mr. Lunt a well known
Lancashire cricket club possosses a one
legged player of distinct ability. In fact.
It ha often been said that mere h not
handicapped by the loss of his limb Mr
Lunt would have been seen In Important
cricket. He Is an excellent but, while to
see Mm keep wicket, with a crutch under
one arm, Is a wonderful Illustration of
what some men can do In the way of
combating the cruelty of fate. Mr. Lunt,
by the way, lo also a splendid cyclist, and
has challenged to race any man who, like
himself, uses a crutch.
Three years ago the Life Saving society
held Its annual gala at Highgate Ponds,
the chief Item 111 the program being the
4 t-yard race for a cup presented ly the
king. The conditions were that competi
tors, fully dressed, were to swim a quarter
of a mile, carrying a living subject ths
last forty yards. Among Ihe sturl?rs were
J. A. Jarvis, the world's champion, nnd F.
C.ndsby, the one-legg.-d swimmer of the
Nottingham Swimming club. Although
Jarvis took the lea, Ga.lsby swam so
magnificently that he actually beat the
champion by a foot, and won tho cup.
B. H. Adams of the New York Athletic
club Is another wonderful crippled swim
mer. Bme hip trouble shortened his leg
go that he walks with a decided limp. In
spite of this handlcsp, however, Mr. Adams
has won so many events In swimming
competition with club members that he Is
now called upon to represent ths club In
matches with other organizations. His
specialty, by the way, is the plunge for
OI.tutice, and he holds the record of the
club for this feat.
Among tho most wonderful feats accom
pllshed ly the blind must rank those of
slghtlesj men who, tn spite of their In
firmity, have walked hundreds of miles on
foot and alone. In 1 Mr. Vincent Iu
rens, a blind Journalist, walked from Man
chester to Olasgow, calling first at War
rington and IJverpool, and gave lectures
at various halls enroute. A year later
Jniues O'Neill, populurly known as "Blind
Jemmy," walked unaided from Camhus
lnng. near Olasgow, to London, tn his
sixtieth year. O'Neill has bad a striking
career. Before he became blind, twenty
years ago, he was a well known walker,
swimmer and boxer. He had been a soldier
and a miner, and was a pony driver In the
High Illantyre pit when over 2040 men were
killed In tho terrible explosion of 1OT. In
lSe4. too, Mr. J. C Bnspe of Liverpool, al
though totally blind, walked from lilack
p,kp1 to Margate, covering approximately
a distance of . miles. Iondon letter In

When the wods became thickly popu

was made by cats belonging to persons
living on the outskirts of the forest. They
have lived royally on game and multiplied,
and to hunters they have become a menace.

The managers ef the forest have not hit
upon a method of destroying the cats

HAT TILT TELLS CHARACTER
Trait of Man Revealed by ' tha '
rose of III Lid Tbe Geo
"Just let me see how a man wears his
hat and I ran get a pretty good Idea of
his character." Is an assertion made by
Prof. II. Gross of the pychulogical labo
ratory of Lrlpetc, Germany.
Furthermore, Dr. Gross rays that there
are some general rules by which any ona
c"a read characters through the hat.
When a man wear hi hat without a tilt
to aether side and neither tressed forward
or backward, Pr. Gross thinks he can be
taken for a man who Is regular In all his
habits, honest and direct In all his dealings.
But If th hat 1 worn with too much
exactitude, he declares, the man may be
set down aa lacking In charity for tha
short-coming of friends and he would not
recommend such a person as a companion
on a trip, because he think such Indi
vidual fall to see the Jollity of Ufa and
are likely to become bore.
As for the man who tilts his hat to tha
right side, th professor thinks that fellow
la Just a Jolly, good-natured Individual who
I likely to bo a bit Irresponsible, but
neither lacking tn trustworthiness or hon
esty. The man who wear Ma hat dipping- over
to the left aide, however. Dr. Gross be
lleves Is usually on of th sporty typ
and not too highly developed In Intellect
As tor wearing the hat slanting back
ward, this h holds shows that the man
under th hat Is reckless and willing to
lake daring chances--ens of those fellows
