BARONESS LEAVES BELGIUM
Favorite of Late Kins' Takes Hint
from the Government.
Cloaluar of the Gates at 3 - O'clock
Castes Riot in TVhlcn Several nre
Injnred Arrangements for
BRUSSELS, Dec. 21. Baroness Vaushan,
whom Leopold made his queen in fact, 11
not In name, quietly left Belgium today,
her reign ended, her power collupsed, ac
cepting the hlrtt of the government thru
If she did not depart voluntarily she would
te expelled from the country"
The baroness packed up those magnlfl
:ent furnishings of her chateau, which
were the personal gifts of King Leopold,
and forwurded thern across the frontier.
She herself took a train for Franco.
To the Belgians this good-looking young
woman, with brovin hair and gleaming
black eyes, was always a great mystery,
but they accepted her like they have the
other whims of the determined, and self
willed king. They have thought for years
of her residence beside the king's, of the
famous floral bridge Unking the two domi
ciles. They have discussed with uncon
cern her absolute dominion over the king's
private Ufa. Yet, now, with the king dead,
they have been driven to deep resentmeM
that, as the king's .body was borne through
tha streets and was lying In state at tne
palace, her photograph was exhibited and
sold in the Brussels thoroughfares and her
name shouted out by hawkers as "Caro
line, the queen."
Ia spite of ths dispatches from Italy and
other countries asserting that King Leo
pold and Baroneas Vaughan had been mar
ried according to the rites of the churoh.
the king's personal friends persist In their
disbelief of this, while they characterise
the stories of a civil unhm as pure non
sense. They say that Leopold, whatever
his faults In private life, would never de

stroy the official dignity of the kingdom.
The" semi-official Twentieth Century
points out that the Belgian code stipulates
that the rightsof succession to the throne
pass to direct descendants of legitimate
birth. If there was a civil marriage in
Italy, It might create potential rights, but,
it Is argued, the absence of all records, all
publication of such a ceremony, and espe
cially the fact that Leopold never pro
claimed Baroness Vaughan his legitimate
wife, effectually disposes of the question.
Prince Albert's happy plan to ri-unlto the
eeparated family was fulfilled today. As
Baroness Vaughan parsed out forever from
Bolglan life, Princess Louise triumphantly
entered the city and was officially greeted
at the station and acclaimed by the peo
ple. She was conducted with royal honors
to the Chateau Belvedere, which hunca
fprth will be her official home.
Panic nt the Palace.
Again today a vaat crowd visited th.
body of the late king. Many of the people
who came In from the provinces were in
censed that the gates were closed at 3
o'clock and they tried to force an entrance.
In Ihe panic, people were trodden on, gar
ments were tern and women fainted. Quite
a number were Injured. Finally the palace
was re-opened and the vUttorj were allowed
to defile past the catalfaque.
Arrangements for the funeral and ths
swearing in of the new sovereign are pro
ceeding rapidly. An army of workmen has
taken poskesslon of -the cainedral, which is
being draped and the chamber of deputies
Is being rearranged for the ceremonies on
Thursday when Albert will triumphantly
enter Brussels on horseback. Delegations
are arriving from the European cour.s. The
United Stales will be represented by Henry

Miss Iila V. Jontz, secretary of the local
Associated Charities, has Inaugurated a
system of Christmas giving that deserves
the attention and co-operation of all In
terested In restoring to the Christmas gift
something more of its real significance,
With the Christmas day reunion, an In
centive to all coming to the attention of
the organization to do their best for their
families and themselves, Miss Jontz has
dcslsed a plan that will enable unfortunate
parents to provide Christmas gifts for
their children and that will prolong the
child's confidence In his parents and spare
him the painful consciousness that his
gifts are a charity. Many things, toys and
useful things, have been sent to tho As
sociated Charities to be given to children
who are likely to be overlooked and It
is Miss Jontz's plan to send these gifts
to the homes and let the parents give them
to their children. By this plan the pleas
ure Is twofold and Christina's Is cele
brated In the home. It Is Miss Jontz's
theory that this plan will stimulate par
ents to do their best for their children
and will avert the child's taking It for
granted that others than those to whom he
should look for It, will provide him with
Christmas gifts. It Is beginning to be
doubted by those who have had most
experience whether wholesale Christmas
giving among children Is In reality a kind
ness. In many cases this is the child's
first Introduction to charity and learning
that It comes so easily ho is lncouraged to
make less effort for himself when It comes
to the substantial things.
"Lucretla Borgia Is not dead. She la
presiding over the American kitchen," says
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief of the' bureau
of chemistry of the Department of Agri
culture. "It Is the duty of every woman,
whether she Is a housewife or not, to in
form herself on the laws of hygiene. The
average Icebox Is a charnel house which
spreads death, and too many housekeepers
allow uncleanllness to prevail In their
kitchens. They'd rather pick out a Beet
hoven sonata, read an Ibsen play, or mem
orize a bridge rule than trace a ptomaine
to its lair and destroy It. ' If th.-y will
personally supervise their marketing and
lardeYs, the present as well as the" future
citizen will be more .useful to the commun
ity. - Too many households do not know
what they are being served. In the morn
ing Lucretla Borgia rushes to the phone
and gives her orders to the grocer's or the
butcher's clerk. He sends out the goods.
Cook receives them. Into the Icebox go
meats and vegetables and "Trults, many
times without haying the wrapping re

meat Is put on the fire, tho tins are empt'ei

One of the unusual programs of the win

of Council Bluffs. It la a study and com

Does Not Say Whether or Not He Will
Accept Challenge of Mayor
NEW YORK, Dec. 21.-"That was a poker
game in which Major Gonter gut all I had;
now he comes back at mo and wants all I
have left," said Samuel Clemens (Mark
Twain) today, when told of the Invitation
of Major Gonter of-8t. Louis to play off at
his home on Christmas a euchre game that
began In 1805 and lasted four years.
Mr. Clemens settled himself back In his
steamer chair on the steamer Burmudlati,
which had Just arrived from Bermuda, and
"Now Major Gonter Is mistaken In his
dates. It seems to me L was In Jail about
the time he has reference to."
Matthias Dougherty, the third surviving
member of the St. Louis euchre club, has
been invited to Join In the euchre game.
Mr. Clemens did not Indicate whether he
would accept Major Gontef'S Invitation.
Speaking lu a serious vein of the suffra
