Male Population of Budapest
Flees Country to Escape
Revolutionists Food
Supply Low.
Budapest, May 7. (Correspond
ence of The Associated Press.)
What may be the last days of the
"red" Soviet republic here are :
fraught with such terror, hunger,
mental misery, uprooting of family i
ties, heartbreaking partings, flights,
arrest and legal lootings that the
majority of Hungarians are praying
that such days may never come
again. They live like people caught
in a burning house with the firemen
squirting benzine on the tonly escape
One way out may possibly be pro
vided by the Czech and Roumanian
armies, who, though national ene
mies of the Magyars, are now hailed
as saviors. The atmosphere is
charged with fears and alarms
worse than those felt on any battle
front. ' A contagious fear like that
which prevails when an army is in
rout is spreading even to foreigners
whose persons are comparatively
safe from .arrest owing to wishes of
Beta Kun, the communist leader,
and other ministers to save them
selves from the gallows when the
jjrand collapse comes.
Males Flee Country.
When fathers and sons flee the
:ountry to evade arrest or to join
the counts-revolutionists, their
wives and mo'hers whisper at the
parting: "l!et us hope we may meet
in happier times." 1
When the correspondent of The
Associated Press has had occasion
to explain his nationality the listen-e-r,
whether red guard, peasant or
civilian, has remarked with envy:
"What a fortunate man you are to
be an American."
He would invariably ask whether
It would be possible to reach Amer
ica and whether foreigners, former
enemies, would be permitted to land
on her shores. Peasants, who re
fuse to furnish food to Budapest or
their cities because they are hos
tile to communism and want shoes
and clothes more than paper money,
of which they have plenty, gladly
enough sold meals and supplies to
the correspondent on the strength
of his American nationality1.
The city of Budapest which a few
weeks ago had a plentiful supply of
eggs people almost lived upon
them and potatoes is now without
eggs, because of the obstinacy ot
the peasants. A great many of the
stores have been closed for lack of
goods to sell, or because they have
been requisitioned by the Soviet.
Country Stripped of Wealth.
The most saddening impression
the visitor receives is that of a
country in dissolution, being strip
ped day by day, mercilessly and in
exorably, of its riches, to beneht
nobody. The relatively pleasant,
orderly and bountiful life that ex
isted in Hungary a few months ago,
when its neighbor Austria was starv
ing, is gone for many years to come.

Lord Sholto, of Meteoric
Vaudeville Career, "Stony
Broke" and in Bankruptcy
Once the Favorite of the Golden Gate, Now a Poor Old
Man in London Blighty, to His Many Sorrows the
Death of His Son on Battlefield of France Added,
Lord Sholto Is Searching for a Place to Rest His
Weary Head for the Remainder of His Days.
1'nlvenwl Serrie Staff Correspondent.
London, June 7. Poor old Lord
Sholto Douglas, once the most
talked-of men in San Franciscco and
the seven days' wonder of all Cal
ifornia poor old Sholto's gone on
the rocks.
London, which does not know its
own Lord Sholto nearly as well as
the city by the Golden Gate once
did, read today that Georsje Doug
las Sholto, "described in the receiv
ing order and commonly known as
Lord Sholto Douglas," had entered
a petition in bankruptcy before the
London bankruptcy court. He
didn't have a penny of assets and
no chattels upon which anything
could be realized. He was "stony
broke.'' Petitioner alleged that be
fore the death of his father in 1900
he had received an allowance of
$1,500 and that he had inherited $50,
000 which he had lost "because of
the war."
After losing all his money early
in 1917, Lord Sholto continued in
his petition, he and his wife had
subsisted on the bounty of a rela
tive, who had made them an allow
ance of $50 a week; but now that
had been withdrawn. There was
positively not a stiver in sight and
his debts amounted to nearly $1,500.
Known in Frisco.
A different Lord Sholto, this middle-aged
and humbled man who
stood with head bowed before the
senior official receiver, from the
one San Francisco knew in the early
nineties. Then Lord Sholto Doug
las cut a flaming swath athwart
naughty Frisco which only was
equalled subsequently by some of
the potlashes indulged by wealthy
miners from the Klondike. His pic
ture was in every paper, his name on
every lip.
The youth in his early twenties
who hit Market street with a loud
noise and a cloud of smoke in 1894
was all the West belieyed a real
English lord should be from its in
struction by the vaudeville stage and
its recollection of the elder Sothern
in Lord Dundreary.
This gav boy had white hair part
ed in the middle and plastered down
either side with pomade, pale
blue eyes, a very large nose and
what was known in the pat-slang
of the day as " a rush of teeth to
the face."
A Sherlock Holmes Lord.
He wore checks as large as a new
development subdivision out near
the Presidio., a monocle, a fore-and-end
cap such as. Sherlock Holmes
used to sport on the stage when he
followed the lighted cigar through
the gas chamber. Also a stick a
stick weighing in the neighborhood
of five pounds and with a carved
ivory alligator's head for a handle.
He was a mark!
And poor young Sholto acted the
part. He had money to spend, on
wine in . the palace grill. He had
money to spend on any likely in
vestment. Result, many corks
popped under the palms of the old
palace, and every con-man in Cali
fornia who knew a "sick engineer"
of an "Indian chief" with inside in
formation on a gold mine groomed
his shillabers and trotted them out
before Lord Sholto. The boy was
a glutton for punishment. No easier
mark ever passed under the ferry
clock, Sholto bought everything
from Brazilian diamonds to shares
in the airship "which was building
out on Haight street
Just when the Sunday papers had
Garden insects and diseases gain
the greatest headway and give most
trouble in neglected gardens. Keep
the garden clean and free from
weeds and save trouble.
Few people realize the value of
birds in keeping garden insects un
der control. Even the despised Eng
lish sparrow sometimes makes a
mistake and eats a worm.
"Let the mole do the work and
get the blame," says the pine mouse
as he scurries through a mole-made
tunnel to a hill of juicy potatoes,
where he eats a self-service meal.
And at that, pine mice are not in
herently lazy. These pests of the
gardener, orchardist and iarmer are
crafty. Moles burrow tunnels in
their search after grubs, insects and
worms and officiate as plain-clothes
men in ridding the soil of rascally
insects. Pine mice tag after the
moles and destroy the vegetables
and root crops which the moles
free o insects.

exhausted all the funny paragraphs
on Sholto he made a visit up the
Sacramento Valley and in Marys
ville, I think it was, the jolly yokels
gave the-English adventurer an en
tirely new thrill. He'd , heard all
about the native sons of the
Golden West what visitor to Cali
fornia is allowed to live in ignorance
of this grand and glorious institu
tion? Carelessly over a bar in the
National house on the first night
after his arrival the scion of Nor
man lineage dropped a regretful tear
that he was not qualified to join, this
noble order having had the bad
iuck to be born in England instead
of the Golden state.
Immediately a choice group of
Marysville's cut-ups determined that
Lord Sholto should not permanent
ly suffer the stigma of not being a
native son, so for his exclusive bene
fit they organized the Order of the
Woolly Bear and extended to the
Englishman a pressing invitation to
become a member. They urged that
few had ever received this honor; in
that they were absolutely truthful;
he was the first and last initiate.
What Made Him Run?
They nearly killed Lord Sholto at
that initiation. Those brawny young
men took the Englishman apart to
see what made him run and put him
together again rather badly. But
Sholto was game, and after the
ordeal was over he was propped up
in a chair at the head of what the
local editor doubtless referred to as
a "groaning board" and he was ord
ered the grape to pass. -
Hardly had the echoes of this
escapade- died when Sholto had a
love affair. Her name was Loretta
Mooney and she was a singer on
"small time." Loretta's family tree
ran back to the kings of Ireland,
perhaps, but it was not listed in
Burke's Peerage. Loretta's mother
was what the French call a "blanch
isseuse"; so were many of Califor
nia's grand ladies at one time or
another. They were married and
the papers played Sholto clear
across the front page
About that time the stern pater
or uncle, or whoever it was back in
England that was supplying the sin
ews for Sholto's adventuring, de
cided to go out of the sinew-supplying
business, and the young Bene
dict was stranded. Was he down
hearted Not Sholto!
He had somebody write a vaude
ville part for him to play in a skit
opposite Mrs. Sholto, and he made
his premiere in the same theater
that first received David Warfield
behind the "foots."
Stage Appearance a Riot.
It was a riot. All San Francisco
fought for seats. The Cherry Sist
ers in their prime never had the S.
R. O. sign out on the sidewalk so
fast. The only stage appurtenance
that might have added to the finish
of the act was a net. All Sholto
had to do was to come out on the
stage and appear natural. The audi
ence did the rest.
After a whirlwind career on the
stage Sholto and the pretty Loretta
disappeared. San Francisco never
heard of them thereafter.
I can only add this bit and a sad
one to the latest, history of the
man who once awoke naughty Fris
co. The eldest son of the once gay
Sholto and Loretta Mooney who
was a native son, even if his daddy
couldn't be was killed figtiting in
France last year.

vote for them. Every car owner
should display the sticker and help

Psychology of a People Is Judged by
Proverbs in New Theory Promulgated
By Philippine Lawyer and, Educator
Questioned Regarding the Progress of the Program of the' Philippines for Inde
pendence, Jorge Bocobo, Member of the Commission, Replied by Quoting Best
Proverbs of the Race From Which His Questioner Was Requested to Form
His Own Opinion of the Ability of the People to Govern Themselves, After Hav
ing An Insight Into the Psychology of the Race.
Washington, June 7. Judge Bo
cobo, member of the Philippine
commission and dean of the law uni
versity of the Philippines, has pro
mulgated a new theory. It is that
the psychology of a people is best
judged by its proverbs.
Meeting Mr. Bocobo and inquir
ing casually as to the progress of
the program for Phillippine inde
pendence, I was rather 1 nonplussed
by his reply, which seemed to be en
tirely evasive.
"Do you hold Lord Bacon to have
been a wise man?" he asked.
"Alexander declared him to have
been the wisest of mankind," I re
plied. "Exactly," said Mr. Bocobo; "now
you may recall what Bacon said,
'The genius, with and spirit of a na
tion are discovered in its proverbs.'"
"Well, what of it?" I asked.
"This," said Mr. Bocobo. "I have
gathered some of the best proverbs
of the Filipino race and I present
them to you that you may have a
true insight into the psychology of
the race and decide for yourself
whether they are not a people fit
for self-government"
Filipino Proverbs.
These are the proverbs which Mr.
Bocobo gave me:
Bravery (1) A hero is braver for
his wounds; (2) It is too late to
withdraw when you are already
vounded; (3) This is what you
wished, my heart, so be brave.

is usually destitute.
Choice He who is hard to suit
will choose the worst.
Compensation, Law of (1) The

When I had absorbed the wisdom
of the proverbs of these people,' who
live in a country which is said to
be hotter than Washington, which if
it be true, them a
pressing need of philosophy, Mr.
Bocobo said:
"The Filipinos are not a hermit
nation. They have taken from the
west whatever they thought was
good for them and suitable to their
conditions. But above these out
side influences they want their na
tional genius to rise to higher lev
els of perfection. It is thus, and
only thus, that they can fulfill what
ever destiny has set for them, and
contribute their own culture to the
general progress of mankind. A
chance to do so is what they wish
when they plead for independence."

Only Goods of Proven Quality
Permitted to Exhibit; All
Goods to Be Represented.
New York, June 7. One of the
biggest enterprises to be embarked
upon, having in mind the extension
of American commerce in foreign
countries, as well as the importation
of foreign goqds to America, has
just been inaugurated in New York,
City. It is the new proposition of
the Merchants and Manufacturers
exchange of New York to maki
Grand Central palace a great clear;
ing house for world commerce.'
On September 30, the United
States government will turn Grand
Central palace back to the Mer
chants and Manufacturers exchange.
For months hhis great 12-story
building the largest expositidn
building in the world which occu
pies an entire city block, has been
used as an army base hospital. Its
evacuation, now taking place, will
permit reconstruction of the entire
interior so as to make it ideal as 1
permanent show place for all sorts
r t . . . .
oi manuiacturea products, ine in
dustries will be grouped and per
manent exhibits will be made on
eight spacious floors, each floor hav
ing approximately 60,000 square feet
of space. The remainder of the
building (the four lower floors) will
be utilized for the annual xpoi
tions which have made the building
famous, such as the Automobile
show, Motor Boat show, .Flower
show, Electrical exposition, Chem
ical exposition, Hotel men's exposi
tion, etc.
Center of Foreign Buyer. ," '
Permanent exhibits of products of
the more important industries will
be opened beginning October IS.
The Merchants' and Manufacturers
exchange has established foreign
connections for export business in
every important city of the world,
and manufacturers, jobbers, retail
dealers, and the thousands of for
eign buyers undoubtedly soon will
regard Grand Central palace as the
world's great trade center and will
make it their headquarters when
visiting New York. Looking for
ward to this the management will
establish clubrooms, conference
rooms,, office facilities, etc., to in
crease the foreign buyers' comfort,
while in the mertopolis. :
Never before has there been such
a permanent , exchange conducted
along international lines which will
give the American manufacturer an
opportunity to come into direct con
tact with the domestic and foreign
buyer. Sme of the industries rep
resented will occupy an entire floor,
such . as the International - Farm
Tractor and Implement exchange, ,
the International Hardware and
Homefurnishings exchange, which
will be among the first to be opened,
on the sixth and seventh floors re
spectively. " t
Many Other Enterprises.
Other enterprises, under way for
other floors, are a permanent ma
chinery exposition, a railway equip
ment exposition, textile display,
printing trades exhibit, etc 'Th
farrh tractor exchange and the hard
ware exchange will open on Octo
ber 15. The plans of the Merchants'
and Manufacturers' exchange are de
cidedly elaborate, and in a number
of ways they will afford a service
to the manufacturer, jobber and
dealer which has never been possible
under the usual systems of mer
chandising. -
Through its wide representation
in other countries the exchange will
make its proposition known to every
foreign buyer before he sails for
America and acquaint him with the
value of the service. of the new en
terprise, while in the Unittd States
and Canada the fact that the building
is so well known leaves no doubt
that it will be the mecca of thous-.
ands of domestic dealers and job
bers. In spite of the fact that the build
ing is an enormous one, space neces-
i: - j r .
interested in putting their products
before the eyes of buyers in this
highly convenient manner will have
to step lively to secure space on the
various floors. Only goods of prov
en quality and concern of A-l re
pute will be permitted to exhibit.
Grand Central palace, which is a
beautiful building in itself and prior
to the entry of the United States
into the war, housed the largest ex
