Alva C. Dlnkoy who it is roported several
times will boforo long succeed William Ellis
Corey ns president of tho steel trust Is another of
tho Carneglo millionaires. Ho has been presi-
dent of the Carneglo Steel company for a numbor

Whllo young Dlnkoy wns at school ho studied

FOE TO HAT TIPPING
Count Johnnn Harrach ono of ho greatest
noblos In Austria is heading a movement to
abolish hat-raising as a form of salutation and to
substltuto the military salute. Tho supporters of
tho movement declare tha this oxposuro of tho
head induces colds Influenza and othor ailments
and ovon baldness. It might also bo added that
it causes hats to becomo worn out much moro
rapidly than thoy would otherwise bo.
Austrian etiquette requires a man to ralso his
hat to all his acquaintances male nnd fomalo
alike ss well as to his social inferiors such as
cabmen and servants. Hcnco anybody with a
tolerably largo bowing acquaintance Is continually
lifting his hat as ho goes along the streets. Count
Harrach sayB this may be all very woll in a mod-
erate clime but in tho cold wlntors and broiling
cummers of VIonna it Is not at all a healthy practice. And so the count
dosplto tho fact that ho Is noarly SO years of ago Is heading a crusado
against this time-honored custom. Ho proposes Instead tho military saluto
of merely raising tho hand to tho head and ho thinks tint among a people
so familial- with military forms and usages as tho Austrians aro such an
Innovation ought not to bo difficult.
Count Harrach howevor is not tho real originator of the movoment.
Somo months ago tho authorities of a small town in Bohemia attempted to
deal with tho same question In a very summary manner. Convinced of tho
physical evils resulting from thus exposing tho head the council passed an
ordinance prohibiting the practice under penalty of a flno of ono crown (20
cents) tho money to go to charity. Ilut tho citizens wouldn't stand for any
such rulings and It was found Impossible to enforce the ordinance But now
that a personage of the great social emlnenco of Count Harrach has taken
tho matter up tho result may bo different.
"FIRT SOLDIER OF FRANCE"
CIRCUIT 4000 MILES LONb.
Gqn. Hagron "tho first soldier of France"
who recently reilgned as chief of tho army as a
protest against tho now law requiring conscripts
to servo only two yeara In tho army. Is an indo-
fatigablo student of war. Ho holds that it Is
wrong for tho Socialist majority In tho chamber
of deputies to sacrlflco the Interests of national
dofenso for political capital.
For years Gen. Hagron has 'felt tho growing
danger to Franco from hor old-tlmo oneray Gor-
many whoso population Is constantly Increasing
while Franco is standing still.
Ho is regarded in Europo as tho best military
oxpert on fiiearms and ordnance. Besides he isi
a brilliant strategist and tactician. Ho is a
mastor of tho lessons taught by tho great battles
in tho American civil war. Cavalry especially
tho control of large bodies operating against a slnglo point has always
been his hobby. Gon. Hagron also studied closely tho advantages of tho
loose formations adopted In tho Boer war campaigns. Further than that
on military experts in Europo followed with such.closo understanding tho
principals of war evolved by tho Japaneso and used with such great success
In Manchuria. No Invention In small arms or artillery in nny part of tho
world escaped his attontlon.
Gon Hagron Is C2 yeqrs old. Ho 13 tho son of an army officer and was
born in Caen. Ho graduated at the head of his class from a military school
In Salnt-Cyr In 18C4. During tho Framo-Gorman war ho attained tho rank
As head of tho French army he perfected an organization which othor
military experts declared could moblllz6 moro 'rnpldly than any other army
in Europe. Franro to-day is ablo to throw hor entire army of ovor 1.000040
men to any clven point in the country within 48 houis.

Probably the longest telegraph cir-

length and In Its course It traverses
the North sea for 200 miles and passes
tliiough Belgium Germany Ituisln
Turkey In Asia and Persia. Tho
