No Royalties Called “Baby"
One noteworthy feature about roy-
alties is that none have been called
“baby,” From their earliest years the
royal children are always called by
their names, or possibly by some pet
name, but an English prince or
princess is never called “baby” either
by relatives or by his (or her) nurses
From the age of five a prince is
called “sir” by his attendants, and a

Eating Oranges on Trains

Theft of a CorDse
A creepy story of the mysterious
disappearance of a corpse comes from
Vergeze, France. A short time ago a
young woman named Alexandrine Lau
rent died at Vergeze, and was buried
in the Catholic cemetery. A few days
ago Alexandrine's mother died, and
the relatives decided to bury her in
the same grave as the daughter.
When the grave was uncovered it was
found that the bier had been turned
upside down. The coffin an oak one,
was intact, and on being opened it
was found to be empty. The girl’s
body has disappeared absolutely.

Nutritious Value of Black Bread
“Black Bread”—that is rye bread—
is not a famine ration, says the Lon-
don Lancet, but just as good food as
white bread, and the form t>f
the staff of life in several civilized
countries. There is almost no differ-
ence chemically between tne two
breads, although the wheat contains
slightly the more gluten. Black bread
"keeps fresh”—that is, moist—much
longer than white bread. It has a
slightly greater irritant wff^ct upon
the intestinal canal, which is also an
advantage under ordinary conditions,
The whole rye bread, or pumpernick-
el is the preferable form.

The new oil gusher in the Sapulpa
field continues to flow 5,000 barrels

Superintendents of Health, in session
at Tulsa presented to State Health
Commissioner J. C. Mahr a $300 dia-

Newspapers and the People.
Whatever we may say of the mod-
ern press on its less commendable
side, we are bound to admit that
newspapers like governments fairly
reflect the people they serve, writes
Francis E. Leupp in the Atlantic.
Charles Dudley Warner once went so
far as to say that no matter how ob-
jectionable the character of a paper
may be, it is always a trifle better
than the patrons on which it relies for
its support. I suspect that Mr. War-
ner’s comparison rested on the great-
er frankness of the bad paper, which
by very virtue of its mode of appeal,
is bound to make a brave parade of
its worst qualities; whereas the read-
er who is loudest in proclaiming in
public his repugnance for horrors, and
his detestation of scandals, may in
PVivate be buying the sheet which
peddles both most shamelessly.

East Las Vegas, New Mexico—
An uprising of serious proportions has
broken out amnog the Taos Pueblo
Indians la their village seventy miles
northwest of here and troops are be-
ing hurried 'by special train from
Santa Fe do check a possible mas-
sacre of white ranchers.
The Indians have cut all telephone j
and telegraph wires from Taos, but
reports received here indicate the dep-
reflations so far have been confined j
to an atack on the wife and children
of L. L. Myers, a homesteader, and
cutting of fences and looting of horses
Further attacks are expected by the
iTncbers and Judge John K. McFie,
conducting court at Taos, issued an
urgent demand for troops to Governor
Mills before the lines were cut. He
declared a massacre imminent.
The governor immediately ordered
fifty men of Companies D and F, New
Mexco natonal guard, to Taos. Gen-
eral tMerkle in charge of the guard
has also ordered Company H of Santa
Fe to be in readiness to march at a
moment’s notice. Company H is the
crack organization of the New Mexico
The uprising of the Pueblos, who
for years have been a peaceful and
law-abiding people, is believed to have
been caused by the punishment of
Pueblos by the territorial authorities.
For years the Pueblos have governed
themselves, electing their own chiefs
and village councilors, who tried and
torial authorities. Some months ago
an Indian of the Isleta Pueblo, who
had been imprisoned by the village
authorities, appealed to the territorial
courts and the chief and councilors
of the village were put in jail. Since
that time the Indians have been un-
punished malefactors of the tribe with-
out recourse or appeal to the terri-
torial courts and the chief and cour.-
councilors of the village were put in
jail. Since that time the Indians
have been unruly.
The taking of the census is also
believed to have caused much unrest
among the Indians. When the enu-
merators reached Santo Domingo and
San Dia Pueblos they were refused
all information concerning members
of the tribe and were threatened with
violence. It was only after they had
threatened to bring troops and former
Governor Curry had gone personally
to the chiefs and reassured them
about the purpose of the census that
the Indians were persuaded to an-
swer the questions.
Even Among the Hoboes.
“Hullo. Dusty,” said Weary Wag-
gles, ns the two tramps met in the
street. “How’s livin’?”
“Somepin awful,” replied Dusty
Rhodes. “The cost of everything’s
gone up so a feller can't hardly get his
three meals per.”
“Humph!” ejaculated Weary. “I
never knowed you to pay for nothin’.”
“No,” returned Dusty, “but it’s the
solemn fact that along my route,
where I used to have to ask only once
for a breakfast, they make me ask
twice these days.”—Harper’s Weekly.
One Type of Religion.
“Too many people,” said Rev.
Charles F. Aked at a luncheon in New
York, “regard their religion as did the
little boy in the jam closet.
“His mother pounced on him sud-
denly. He stood on tiptoe, ladling jam
with both hands from the jam pot
to his mouth.
“‘Oh, Jacky!’ liis mother cried.
‘And last night you prayed to be made

of jam, turned towards her.

Ill-fitting doors and windows rep-
resent a happy hunting ground for the
disturbing winds. In fact, so annoying
does the constant rattle of these open-
ings become that many determined in-
dividuals, who resolve to admit the
fresh air, choose the lesser of two
evils and close the openings in prefer-
ence to sleepless nights. This can be
remedied if a small wedge of wood
he driven at the side of an open
window; a door can be prevented
from rattling if a pad or strip of thick
felt be nailed on the edge of the door.
The annoyance of creaking drawers
can be eliminated by rubbing common
soap upon the top, sides and bottom of
Creaking hinges on anything should
be well oiled, while the grating, irri-
tating noise of a sewing machine can
be overcome in a similar manner.
The little noises wear away the pa-
tience that is required for other
things. It were foolish to dissipate
energy through the channels of irri-
tated nerves when a little time will
obviate the nuisances.
