It has been figured that the Hoer

The decided change In the tempera-

Is mot refreshing.
During the month of April the capi-

So many guesses were made regurJ.
ing the plan of Chnrlcs MI' Schwab
president of the United States Steel
corporation for the disposition of the
property known as Iilclimoml bench
Stolen Island which he recently pur-
chased that Mr. Schwab the other day
decided to settle the question.
"I have purchased it" said Mr.
Schwab to a reporter of the New York
Times "for the benefit of poor nnd
sick children of New York. Tho land
comprises about a quarter of a mtl
of fine bench; also a flue fresh water
lake a grove and high land reaching
bnck to the Richmond road.
"Tho improvements on the property
at present coiiKlst of a farmhouse pa-
vilions on the ocean uuorc pagodas nnd
a Inrgo steniubont pier. These build-
ings will bo altered to suit the purposes
of tho purclmso nftor consultation with
charitable Institutions of New York. It
Is expected that from 1000 to 2000
children dally can be provided for at
tho bench nnd n good time will be
given to them by means of bathing
boating on the lake rides on donkeys
"Tho children will be conveyed to the
beach probably on a large steamer.
Every child will recelvo n good dinner.
Mrs. Schwab Is Interested with me in
this undertaking. We shall proceed
carefully nvnlllr.g ourselves of the ex-
perience of charitable organizations.
There are no marshes near this beach
nnd I regard It us ono of the finest
properties for the purpose that could
be purchased anywhere. It gets the
full sweep of the ocean breezes across
the lower bay and to get thero tho
children will have tho benefit of 11 fine
sail of nn hour or more."
THE CORONATION BAG.

IlitlS For Women.
Among the fnshlonnblc rtoccssorles of
tho fcmlnlno costume which have been
nnmcd In honor of the coming royal
ceremonies In England Is tho "corona
tlon wrist bag" which in Kb newest
nnd smartest form is of walrus hand
Bomely mounted in gilded sliver says
the Philadelphia Times. The bag Is
somewhat narrower nt the clasp than
nt the bottom where It has a pointed
effect. An artistic coronation bug In
bclgo covered walrus ban a clasp of
gilded sliver which also forms the
chain and tho graceful scroll orna-
mentation applied along the bottom of
the front of the bag.
The bag closes with two acorns form-
ed of turquoise nuts set in cups of tho
gilded silver. The front of the bag is
arranged with a flap which opens with
a turquoise cabocbon button revealing
a pocket to receive the handkerchief.
The lrnlng Is of molro silk the delicate
beige tint of which harmonizes with
tho Ivory hue of tho leather.
Equally artistic is a coronation bag
of black walrus similarly adorned with
silver edged mountings and scroll orna
mentation and ncorn cups holding
amethyst nuts the dsep luminous pur-
ple of which is repeated In the color of
the moire llnlug. A bag of tan walrus
Is still another variation of these nrtls-
tlcally designed nnd created reqdlsltes
of the fashionable woman's costume
nnd In this the nuts reposing In the
gilded cups are of polished coral.

thnt n Uvo Industry Is connected with
the exhumation of old numbers nnd
that these roust be deposited within

Hence the British museum Is going to
spend 18000 ($00000) on a new old

made expressly for them says the Chi-

up to ono of tbo reading rooms of tho
British museum as required. London
Is no louger big enough for the news-

the great public librarians that there Is
no such thlug ns a superfluous book on

One Critic I.lUeni It to the Tlnahlnic
of Witter In a Tempest.
Gladstone was n great financier and
perhaps the very greatest expositor of
finance who ever lived. He had a
waglcnl Influence over masses of men
and a power of words the effect of
which was more like that of hugo
masses of water In a tempest than any
thing else. Ills Midlothian speeches'
made one think less of a river coming
down thnn of the sea coming up. IKs
skill In constructing a difficult measure
was not even approached by nny man
of his time and perhaps was never ex
ceeded by any man at any time.
These and many otlier merits we
must freely nllow him but when the
final estimate of him Is made many
traits must bo introduced nnd not least
his extraordinary power of believing
precisely what he wished to believe.
lie had a tender conscience but save
only where finance was concerned he
hud that conscience thoroughly under
coumand. If It showed the slightest
recalcitrancy his will was always
ready to sny "Just you dare!"
And yet when all has been said for

that ho will remain the most notnblc
Englishman of his generation ns much

Tho "Seven Golden CUIob" ono of
the most popular legends of tho latter
part of the dark ages were said to bo
situated 011 nn Island west of the Af-
rican coast The Island ts represented
ns abounding in gold with magnificent
houses nnd temples "the high towers
of which shone nt a great distance"
Tho legend nlso relates that nt the
time of the conquest of Spain nnd Por-
tugal by the Moors when the inhabit-
ants lied In every direction to escape
slavery seven bishops followed by n
great number of people took to ships
and put boldly out on the high sens.
After tossing about for some tlmo they
landed on tin unknown Island tho fa-
mous spot which In after years became
the sent of the "Seven Golden Cities."
"This Island" Heylyn says "wns ex-
actly In mldocean." After all had
landed safely the wise old bishops
burned the ships to prevent their fol-
lowers from deserting nnd founded the
cities which have become so famous In
