LONDON. Sept. . (Spec ial. I Even to hla
must Intimate friends the announcement
of Winston Churchill's engagement was a
surprise. Winston never bus -seen and
never will be a Woman' man. His tem
perament is too uncertain and too mojdy
for that. Until the actual .announcement
of the engagement he apparently paid Miss
Clementine Hosier no more attention than
anyone else. Hi' may have been a trifle
plcasantcr to her. but that Is ull. But
Winston la a man of impulses which, by
the way, he does not usualjy regret. In a
sudden fit of frivolity and good humor he
proposed to the future Mrs. Winston. Thre

news was soon public property.

Winnie's Mamma Worries.-
There Is no denying the fact that Mrs.
George Cornwallls West Is distressed that
Winston did not marry an American
heiress. Ever since her sons have been
of age she desired that both should Wed
compatriots of her own. Her younger son,
Jack Churchill, who Is still On his honey
moon, remarked to an intimate at the time
of hla engagement to Lady Gwen Bertie,
"I am jolly sorry to disappoint the mater,
she is such a ripping good sort. In not
marrying an American, but the fact of thr
matter is all our lives she has chucked
Vunkee heiresses at Winston and me, and
we have had such s surfeit of them that
It put us off American girls."
Like the sensible woman she Is, Mrs.
George Cornwallls West has accepted the
Inevitable with good grace and has tit
tered heartily into the preparations tor

Is with her constantly and Just now the

All their lives she has been their (besk

as well as their sorrows.
Hereon that Went Wrong;.
A dramatic incident wormy of being
turned into a romance has just taken
place at Lord Anglesey's place in Wales.
A large house party assembled fur the
shot ting. Among the guests was a very
popular count notoriously hard up. In
cluded also In the gathering was a lady
who had once been his inamorata. She
had many pasts, and there was no ques

the imiwcunlous one had withdrawn his
But Jilie resented this bitterly and de
cided to have her revenge Notwithstand
ing the fact that In each bedroom was a
notice requesting ladies to keep their Jew
els locked up, many of the guests were
notoriously careless, especially so one
young Irish countess. She had been re
buked by the host's mother, Lady Alfred
Paget, on numerous occasions. She laughed
each time, but never mended her ways.
The lady with the grievance decided
she would take one of the countess's
tilnkets and place, it In the luggage of the
tmpecunt' us individual who had "dropped"
hi r. After lunch one day she stole into
the countess' room on her mission. She
seised the first trinket she could find a
valuable hair ornament and departed. In
her hurry she failed to note that the
owner of the room was trying to take a
nap on a coach In the corner. The latter,
who was wide awake, saw whst had hap
pened. Determined, even if she was to
lose the ornament, not to make a fuss,
quite quietly she watched the flying figure
and noted that she entered room in the
the corridor. No. ID.

Hcullssd fur September.
All thg ultra-smart Americans In Kurope
will be in Scotland for September. Tliia
Is the great month there. Although In
consequence f the duchess of Koxhurghe's
mourning, things will be comparatively
quiet at Floors castle, birds have to be
shot and it is compulsory for her grace to
receive her husband's friends. The shoot
ing at Floors Is the finest In Scotland, not
excepting that of Balmoral. When birds
are scarce everywhere else they n.re to be
found on the moors owned by the duke
cf Koxburghe. Shortly after the advent of
the duchesa, numbers of extra ganifkeepers
were added to the staff, with Instructions
from her grace to leave nothing undone to
cultivate the game, her object being to
mlnlBler to "the duke's pet weakness, his
gun. It is ald that the duchess spends
between ),uOU and l.'5,(M) a year on the
cultivation of the wild birds on her mag
nificent aviary and xoo at Floors.
Every male servant in the employ of ule
duke and duchess wears the plcturesoue
tartan of the Innes Kers In his kilt, and the
Scotch bonnet. The duchess has her nun
piper, who was selected for the honor by
the duke. He is a brawny Highlander of
six foot odd and is always in attendance
on the duchess when she is in the north.
The duchess soon learned to talk to him in
Ills own dialect. It goes without saying lie.

It has been sa,id, and not without truth,
that were It not for the Americans in Scot
land the kilt would be a thing of the past.
Every American who rents a house in the

that the servants are arrayed In the kilt,

FAIR MAIDSLAYThEIR NETS
In married Portion of (he Centle Sex
of Luxemburg I'reiinrlnit for
BRUSSELS, St-pt. 5. (Special. )Although
the happy day if atlll some months away,
the fair maids of Luxemburg, who have
not yet been fortunnte enough to secure a
husband, have begun to prepare for "Lov
ers' Fair." New dresses are being; made,
old ones repaired, and all the subtle art's
known to womankind the world over are
being brought to bear upon the problem
of making the unatluched daughters of the
households Irresistible In the eyes of the
eligible young men.
Kvery year, on the first Thursday In De
cember, the peasants of this hilly province
flock Into its chief town, Arlon, lr. char-a-bancs,
carts and every' other description of
vehicle, in order to attend the cWlous
ceremony. The young people strike up ac
quaintance whlle their parents exchange
confidences as to the possibility of the
match. The young man, who Is Invariably ;
dressed in his best black cl ithes, offers
presents to the girl of his choice, and even
goes sii fur as to claim a formal engage-
ment. These operations take place openly
In streets, In houses of refreshment arxi In
the public gardens.
All this, however, is hut preliminary and
of but slight Interest compared with what
follows. If two young folks become mu
tually attracted at. this "fair," the respec
tive families apply to a marriage broker,
or, as he is called, "a holy man." This
person becomes the honored guest In the
house of the parents of both contracting
parties; he makes himself acquainted with
their exact social position, their habits of
life, their tastes; transmits these details ti
the "other side," Indicates how house
keeping may be best started on the given
conditions; in short, he "fixes up" the
marriages. These broker or holy men are
generally counted as first rate tram hmen
and wlne-swallowers. All the !amn they
are held In considerable esteem by the two
families, at whose table they are accorded
the place of honor.
A month later, that Is to say, on the first
Thursday in the new year, there Is a sec
ond "fair" at Arlon. Here the lovers for
mally plight their trotii, the families give
their mutual consent to the union, and the
broker receives his remuneration, consisting
of a commission on the amount of the
dowry, and In accordance with an ancient
custom, a pair of top boots and a top hat..
As the parties leave the town in the eve.
ning it is easy to see, by the number of
young girls loaded with presents, whether
he "holy men" have done good business.
PICTURE OF ATIPSY BISHOP
( burt-b Authorities Refuse to Allow
It to He Kxhlnlted In the Local
Academy of Arts.
: WARSAW. Sept. , 6. (Special.)-War Is
waging between the archbishop of Warsaw
ami tlie Acadfiuy of Arts and others in
the same city over a masterpiece of the
famous Russian historical painter. Maie
Jko, whose pictures command very high
prices on the tare occasions when, lliey
rencl the public market.
ALi.lt jko painted on wood, during the
best pvrlod cf his life, a picture iepresnt
Itig the mediaeval bishop of Giilecno-Uam-rat
leaving the castle of Cracow after a
banquet. His' lordship is In a state or
hilarity, and history says that he was
uften in such a condition. 'Hie picture Is
full of life and. In the original, the effect
of the torch-light upon the snow is as
good and convincing as anything the great
lolurist, Matejko, ever produced. One feels,
In looking at it, the sharp frosi of the
I'ollsh winter and th general atmosphere
of hilarity and good cheer with which
Rishop Uamrat was wont to surround him
self in the castle.
The picture baa never been .exhibited,
though copies of It embellish hlS'oiy books
In I'oland. Its late owner, Henry Reich
man, a we'l known Warsaw financier,
bought It direct from the artist, and left
It to his widow. In whose possessiin.lt
remainder till that lady's death last spring.
Her heirs decided to sell it, and to give the
proceed to the late-Mr. Relchman's . poor
relatives. It Is valued at between HO.ftO
and jHii.imi, and 'the smaller amount has
already been offered for it. The heirs.
wishing to git as high a price as possible, (
determined to have it exhibited at tne war
saw Academy of Arts.
The picture had barely been hung, when
one of the canons in the name of the
archbishop, . requested that the picture
should Immediately be taken down from
the walls. Mr. Krywult, one of the direc
tors of the Academy, protested. "It all
happened so long ago and everybody knows
so well that Hlshop Gamrat was fond of
enjoying himself, that the picture cannot
do any harm to the church's reputation, '
sail Mr. Krywult. Rut tne archbishop waa
oldurate nnd he was obliged to have the
pu ture taken down.
Then the heirs appealed to the clergy,
but with no better success. One of the.n
even declared that the picture should be
exhibited in Warsaw, no matter what the
church said. "Very well." was the arch
bishop's reply, ghen through one of his
ranons. "We cannot get the polio to
interfere, but we can and do assure you
that you will regret showing tills picture
publicly, if ou do so, we shall influence
a'l the local press, not only to condemn
It Is an act of dlsrepect to the church; bjt.
what la perhaps of more Importance to
you aa sellers, to condemn It ss the worst
piece of work Matejko has ever done."
This remark has given rise to a great
d-al of diaursfcion, hut the heirs are quietly
laying their plans for their revenge. They
are having "Gamrat" photographed an1
(Tinted on several thousand ostcardt.
which will be sent to every town in I'o
land and Austria for sale. This Is being
done secretly, lest the archbishop should
hear of It and put his veto upon It before
they are ready. Once the postcards are
in the shops, the heirs say they do nol
mind tho archbishop's knowing about them
because they will have attained their ob
ject and have brought their picture to the
notice of thousands who, utln-rwise, would
never have heard of it.
ENGLAND'S OLDEST ADMIRAL
Admiral Moonnau lias Seen fcervlee
Afloat for Kiaht-Kie Imn, a
Record III Naval lllMiory.
1JNLhjN, Sep;, o. (Kp.vlal.l England's
oldest admiral, Richard AlooniKin, has Just
celebrated his !Mh birthday. 1'robably no
other naval uilkci hi the world can boast
a lunger reccrd, hh he enter) it the British
navy at IX His numoiy of Nervlce afloat
goes back to the year IN.;!, and he has some
womlri.us "varus to spin" ul lite and ad
venture on many si as.
tine of the iikwI singular experiences
which he lakes pleasure ill relating Is rub
bing noss literally with the great Maori
queen, who 111 her turn had "rubbed noses"
with Captain Cook, th famous explorer.
"The Maoris In those days," said the ad
miral in the course of a rei-ent interview,
"were a cannibal tribe on the west coast
0 New Zealand. I was one of the first to
visit th'-m. This waa as far back as Ki.
1 revisited the Maoris sixteen years later,
when Sir George Grey was governor, and
met thi- chief of the Maoris. He remem
bered my earlier visit. The rhl-f and I !e
came very friendly, and he committed to
my charge his grandson, who was. In a
wsy, prince regent of the country. I kept
him a year on my ship and then persuaded
the British government to give him an education."
Admiral Moorman has the distinction of
having been court-martialed for tryl'ig to
keep an epidemic of yellow fever off his
ship In IS-1. The government demanded a
rltten defense from him for enforcing
certain sanitary regulations, but he refused
to deliver any but a verbal one. The con
sequenoe was that the court-martial had to
send or hhn tc com home to Rngland all
the wsy fnm the West Indies When he
explained that his action had saved his
ship from an epidemic he was fully ex
onerated and had the pleasure of triumph
ing over his mallgners. -
Admiral Mixwman has also the distinction
of having commanded the first screw-propelled
warship In the British navy, "The
Rattler." It was a complimentary appoint
ment which he had won through his great
merit In naval gunnery. After commanding
the Rattler for some time he was trans
ferred to the first paddle-wheel ship In the
navy, and he has witnessed all the wonder
ful changes In steam propulsion which
have taken place Hi nee those early days.
The aged admiral Is as remarkable for
his ideas of naval reform as he Is for his
singular experiences. He has always made (
a stand against promotion through favor
itism. He waa among the very first to plesd
for the advancement of men from the lower
deck, and has aluaa advocated what he
calls "promotion throfigh the hawse-hole."
Naturally, hla Ideas met with litt en
couragement In conservative naval circles,
but after working hard for thirty years
along democratic lines, he manaa-ed to
break through the ring fence of nepotism
and succeeded In himself dispensing sev
eral promotions which had been placed In
his hands by the government.
Among the curious nautical reminiscence
of the "Father of the British Navy" Is ths
occasion when, in circumnavigating the
globe. two'Saturdays fell in the same week.
In going from the Cape of Good HVp
around Cape Horn, he had 98 days Insteait
of 3S5 in his year, and whan he ram to
the ismh parallel the two Saturdays
"worked in" on his reckoning. It was only
by this means that he could put his rwnord
right with that of the rest of the world.
Admiral Moorman has lived under no less
than five sovereigns snd has won many
distinctions. Today, in his Sfcth year, ha
sems as hearty aa ever and takes keen
delight In attending local foot ball matches
In the city of Pxmouth In South Denonsliira,
England, where he lives.
