WASHINGTON, AprU .-John Hay had
I a saylnc- that the Ideal diplomatic service
If any government ever succeeds In having
one will be coirpoaed exclusively of un
married men. Mr. Hay had had no ex-
j pcrlence In naval matters or he might
J have Included the navy In his maxim.
There probably Is no branch of the gov-
eminent service where petticoat influence
la so strong as In the navy. Ak any ex
l secretary of the navy about It and he will
B tell you how the navy women In a
and different ways, sometimes uncon
sciously and occasionally deliberately, an
noy the Navy department. He wl'l tell you
how they scheme to obtain desirable posts
of duty for their husbands or sons and
how they annoy the department with re
quests for change of orders when their
husbands are transferred from an easy
Job In Washington to sea duty on the
Aslatio station or some other far-away
tropical post. The recent row at the Bos
ton navy yard, which culminated In the
court-martial of two officers, illustrates
the prominent part women often play In
now la Traditional.
Almost everybody knows of the mutual
111 feeling existing between the navy
women and the department. Every once
In a while something happens to widen
this breach. Only a few days ago Enlgn
Charles M. Austin, son of Representative
Richard W. Austin of Tennessee, was de
prived of an especially desirable berth by
the Navy department merely because he
got married. He had been detached from
the dispatch boat Dolphin at the Washing
ton navy yard and ordered to Japan for
duty as a student attache at the Amer
ican embassy at Tokio for the purpose of
studying the Japanese language. On the
way to his new post of duty he stopped at
his former home In Tennessee and was
married to girl he had known for many
This was too much for the unromantlc
departmental authorities, who suddenly
decided that a married ensign would not
make, as good a student of the Japanese
language as a bachelor. Accordingly , his
orders were revoked and Instead of spend
ing his honeymoon In Toklo he will have
less Interesting service at the naval traln
I lng station on the Pacific coast. He will,
' however, have his wife. '
Wife Roles the Ship,
i Before the days of steel and steam in
I the navy the wives and families of com
i mending officers of cruising vessels en
) Joyed the privilege of living on board.
! There was a vessel years ago cruising In
the West Indies that was commanded by
a mild-mannered and quiet officer. His
wife, who was on board, was of a different
disposition. She was overbearing and had
a bad temper. The officers on board re
garded her as the real commander, of the
hip and obeyed her commands with even
greater alacrity than those issued by the
nominal captain. One day she decided that
the ship needed painting and ' the sallom
were ordered to begin work with their
pota and brushes. She gave free rein to
her artlstla Ideas. The captain's gig, which
she used In going ashore, was redecorated
under her personal supervision. At her be
hest It was painted green outside and pink
"I thought it would be pretty," she ex
' plained to her husband, "to have it pink
' inside and sreen outside just like a sea-
Sometimes a Tragedy.
But sometimes In the old days there was
an element of tragedy In the incidents
Such a; one occurred on the sloop Tennes
see years ago. It was a hot and sultry
summer night while the Tennessee was
cruising In mldocean off Hampton Roads.
The captain and his wife had gone to their
cabin, but the heat was so oppressive they
could not sleep. Finally In the hope of
coaxing sleep they exchanged bunk.
Shortly afterward a light breose sprang up
and both went to sleep. In the middle of
the night the rapid falling of the barom
eter gave warning that a storm was ap
proaching. The navigator sent a midship
man below decks to awakn the captain.
He spent several minutes rapping on the
captain's cabin without avail. The mlddlo
knew that the cnptaln must be waked
promptly at all hazards and he had been
directed to enter the cabin if rapping would
not suffice. The young midshipman en
tered the cabin and stood In the middle of
the room a minute or two yelling. "Cap-1
tain," but without avail. Finally the mid
dle realised that he hud to shake the cap
tain to rouse him. Ho figured out that the
captain always slept In the berth on ihe
port side, while his wife occupied the
otherJ -After convincing himself on this
point the middle approached the captain's
berth and grasping him by the shoulder
i shook him with more energy than judg
I ment. There was a feminine shriek. Th
; captain Jumped out of the opposite berth
and made a few emphatic remarks upon
the impropriety of invadln the captain's
cabin without knocking. The bewildered
middle had visions of court-martial and
dismissal from the service In disgrace. Rut
: the captain was good hearted and did
not make a complaint.
Yor Her Comfort.
Often the itinerary of a cruise was
regulated by the wishes of the Captain's
i wife. This occurred some years ago on a
. naval vessel enroiue irum m
j Hampton Roads. The captain's wife was a
! poor sailor and had had bad spells of sea
sickness if It was rough going. The vessel
made a long detour to the South Atlantic
so as to avoid the storm area. The vessels
were many days overdue at No. folk and the
officers of the deartment became anxious.
Finally, however, it sailed Into Hampton
Roads and reported its arrival to Washing
ton. When tho department asked the
cause of the unusual delay the captain re
ported that he had to steer an unusually
long and roundabout course to save his
wife from seasickness.
Efforts to Break. It I P.
In ISM William H. Hunt, then secretary
of the navy. Issued sn order forbidding
naval women from living aboard or travel
ing upon cruising vessels. But this order
did not entirely solve the problem. Wives
or officers went to the cities at which their
husbsnda' vessels made their headquarters.
In Rlu de Janeiro and Yokohama were
large colonies of navy women, who resided
there while their husbands were cruslng In
the vicinity. These cruies were never of
great length, because the 'officers did not
care to remain away from port very long.
Efforts were made to break up these
colonies, and on July b. 1&&3, William K.
t'handler, secretary of the navy, Issued an
order that caused a revolution among the
women of the service. It was genersl order
No. 307. which read as follows: i
Naval officers attached to cruising ves
sels, especially commanding officers, are
expected to leave their families at their
usual or fixed places of abode, and not to
attempt to transfer them to niore con
veiifiit visiting points. Officers disregard
ing this injunction will be liable to be re
lieved from duty.
This roused the navy "widows," as they
are called, to the highest pitch of recent
ment, and they revolted. The wife of an
officer serving In Alaska took up her
residence at Sitka, where her husband's
vessel often stopped. It was a plain viola
tion of the secretary's regulation, and the
department ssked the officer for sn ex
planation. His reply was substantially as
"My wife will not go home, f have asked
her to do so. and she refused. I ordered
her home and she would not not go. Please
advise what further steps I shall take to
comply with the wishes of the department."
The archives of the department unfortu
nately do not tell the sequel of this Inter
Similar Instances were reported from
various parts cf the world. Secretary
Chandler made an effort to enforce his
unusual order by suspending from duty
three officers on the Asiatic station.
Finally, however, William C. Whitney, who
suceeded Mr. Chandler as secretary of the
navy, realized the hopelessness of enforcing
the order. The navy women were victorious
and the obnoxious order was revoked on
June 3w, 1S6.

W Widows ItooHil the World.
In recent years, however, there hasn't
been much friction of this sort. When tne
battleship fleet made Its world cruise many
navy "widows" followed It and participated
with their huxbands In the festivities at the
vaiious ports. Practically all of them were
at Old Point Comfort on December 1. 17.
to watch with unconcealed regret the big
war vessels disappearing in the distant
haze. A few days later when rumors came
from the fleet by wireless that it would re
turn to the Atlantic ocean by way of the
orient and the Suez canal there was more
tugging at the heartstrings. The navy
women were well represented on the Pa
cific coast when the fleet had completed
Its cruise around 'South America. When
tlie battleships stopped on their cruise
across the Pacific the navy women were
there, too. At Toklo they danned the native
costumes and greeted their husbands even
more cordially than the Japanese. At Gib
raltar, where the fleet mode Its lust stop
before crossing the Atlantic a small
crowd of navy women waved farewell to
the departing vessels.
One Wife's Strategy.
Several years ago the wife of a promi
nent naval officer thought she would like
to spend some time abroad Without her
husband's knowledge she used her Influ
ence to have him assigned to duty as naval
attache at on of the American embassies
In Europe. Finally the orders were Issued
and she told her husband how hard she
had worked to obtain such a desirable as
signment for him. Unlike most naval offi
cers, he had been able to save a small
competence out of his salary, but he was
by no means wealthy enough for a social
campaign required of naval attaches at
foreign capitals. He remonstrated with
her, but she was too enamored with the
social side of navy life to give up her am
bition. After one winter abroad the finan
cial phase of the question began to appeal
to her more strongly as their savings grad
ually dwindled. She realized the tremend
ous cost af attaining her hobby. Her re
sourcefulness, however, was equal to the
occasion, and after considerable cabling to
friends In Washington her husband was
transferred to a less, expensive post of
There Is a large colony of navy "widows".
In Washington, wheae husbands are serv
ing In different, parts of the world. While
they do not shirk their household duties
they seem to have plenty of time for rec
reation. Many own automobiles and are
expert chauffeurs. Others go in for tennis
and golf. There are others who prefer
bridge whist and euchre. With all their
amusements and forms of recreation, how
ever, they all live In expectation of the
day when their husbands will have shore
duty in some habitable part of the globe

VIENNA. April 9. (Special Dispatch to
The Bee.) Colonel Richard C. Kerens,
the new American ambassador, arrived in
Vienna today and early next week will
present his credentials and be formally
presented to the emperor.
The first work which will present Itself
to Mr. Kerens will be the arrangements for
the reception of Colonel Roosevelt. His
mr.st difficult task will be that of elimina
tion. Everybody In Vienna, from the em
peror down, Is anxious to do honor to the
famous American ex-presldetit. and there
will be a dozen Invitations for every possi
ble acceptance. Mr. Kerens Is an old frlnd
of Colonel Roosevelt and doubtless not the
lea.-t pleasant part of the latter's visit
at the Austrian capital will be his talks
with the Missouri leader, who will be able
to "show him" what has happened In the

the crown. Is seriously worrying the high
When -the archduke married Countess
Sophie Chotek, he by solemn oath re
nounced for his children any claim to .the

duchess does not propose to see her eldest
son. Maximilian, thrust aside by this oath.
She has quietly but effectively gone ahead
to strengthen her position in Austria, and
when her husband ascends the throne It Is
by no means certain that she will take her
place beside him wlih her son as crown
The situation Is complicated by the fact
that Hungary d?s not recognize mor
ganatic marriages. It Is boldly asserted in
Budapest that when Franz Ferdinand Is
crowned king of Hungary the Duchess
Sophie will be crowned queen with him
and the little Maxarr.lllan will be the heir
to the Hungarian throne. If Franz-Ferdinand
should stand by his oath. .so far as
Austria Is concerned. It may very well be
that there will be one heir to the Austrian
throne and another for the Hungarian,
which would mean trouble and lots of tt.

New Garage of the Paxton-Mikhell Company
On Harney Street i
The new gamge of the Paxton-Mitchell Co. will bo erected at 2012-14-16-18 Harney Ht. during the next sixty dnys, and
will be one of ihe most complete and thoroughly equipped plants in this part of the country.
The building will be brick, 112x132, and will cost $20,000. Two driveways will be provided for machines entering or
leaving the building and the offices will be between the driveways.
This will be essentially a garage and no cars will be sold. Sixty-five machines can be stored for owners and taken care
of easily on the first floor, and no effort will be made to provide for more. New machines have been put in and even
facility added to do repairs on cars just the same as if they were in the factory that made them.
The building is absolutely fire-proof and safe in every respect.
The Paxton-Mitchell Co. have been doing automobile work the past two years, and have the only plant of this kind in
this part of the country. Mr. E. TJ. Wilson, a thoroughly experienced and capable man, has had the physical management of
the plant since it took on the new work and will be placed at the head of the new plant.

Railroad Will Soon Form Junction
Near Larissa and Open Com
ATHENS. April 9. (Special Dispatch to
The Bee.) Greece Is looking forward
with great eagerness to the near realiza
tion of the long-hoped for exit from the
north by the building of a continuation
of the Larissa railroad through Turkey.
Count Aehrenthal's recent utterances
have buoyed up the hopes of those who
so ardently wish to see Greece united with
the outer world and not cut off as she Is
today. The Austrian statesman's words
were: "In a short time it will be possible
to form a junction with the Turkish and
Greek railroads near Larissa. This would
open out direct communication between
Vienna, Budapest, Sarajevo, the Piraeus
and Athens. It would also form the short-
st route between central Europe and
Egypt and India."
At the present time French engineers are
engaged In hurrylng-up the conclusion of
the Larissa line to the Turkish frontier.
Meanwhile the Plraeus-Larissa railroad,
which was defective In places. Is being
strengthened where weak and the entire
line to Larissa will be ready at the end
of April. It covers a distance of 435 kilo
meters. There are ninety kilometers to be
completed on Turkish territory to bring
the line to Monastlr and when that is com
pleted international trains can circulate di
rectly betwetn Athens and the whole of

will of Turkey and the powers, in a year

Dry shampooing always has been and
always will be popular with the womsn

Is so all-around satisfactory, that
one wonders why soap and water, egg-,

Dry shampoos certainly stimulate tlie
growth of hair. There tan be no dojbt
as to that. Just mix four ounces of
powdered orris root w ith four ounce of

mixture upon the' head, brush the pow
