Puppies Are Guests of a Great New York Hotel
NEW YORK.—With the hum of mighty drlvewheela (or their lullabya an4
grimy engine-room workera for their nuraea, aeven motherleaa pupplea art
being coddled to atrong young dogbood In the aubbaaement of one of New
Yerk'a greatest hotela. On the diet
which waa devised, along with the
feeding apparatua. by the chief en-
gineer of the hotel, they are growing
fat and playful.
Up in the hotel kitchen, nearer
the level of the earth than the deeply
bidden engine room, highly paid chefa
each day prepare the milk which the
puppies suckle three times every 24
boura. It la diluted and aweetened and
then heated to the proper temperature
before it la poured Into aeven carefully
acalded bottles that are placed In the rack from which the pupa are fed.
Each bottle haa a rubber tube and the conventional nipple, only In this
caBo the nipple la the tiniest which could be found. The aeven little pupa,
packed close together In a row. eat regularly at nine In the morning and at
one and half-past four o'clock in the afternoon
The dogs are the offspring of the chief englneer'a fox terrlera, Nifty and
Dot Dot, the mother, died leaa than two weeka after the pupa were born,
and the chief engineer faced the problem of either drowning the doga or rale-
Ing them. The Idea of drowning them never aerlously entered the chief
engineer's head, for he loves dogs, and he had Been the marking on the pupa and
knew of what breed they were.
So ho sat hlio/elf In his big chair and thought for a long time; after which
be called on the cpefs In the kitchen and talked perauaalvely. The reault waa
the nursery in th« subbasement, where the great machinery which heata, lights
and maintains tin. hostelry has ita being The pupa have never been to the
surface of the earth yet, but they are getting frlak and fat deaplte that.
Social Usage Course in New York University
NEW YORK.—At laat a college la meeting the real needa of the age. The
classics may be forgotten, but New York university haa a courae In aoclal
usage and etiquette. Arthur H. Naaon, assistant professor of English, la the
lnatructor. He la a tall, courteoua per
aon, with a very neat Van Dyke beard,
and evidently well qualified to give
Buch a courae. He aaaured a reporter
that the courae la not official. But It
may become aUch In time. He aaid a
group of medical preparatory atudenta
wanted It for purely profeaalonal pur
poses. A doctor must know how to
get along with hia patlenta, you know.
"How many atudenta have you?"
"Fifteen or twenty, depending on
Ihe weather and the ball game." waa the amillng reaponae.
"And Just what do you Btudy?"
"We're very practical. The flrat time we studied "Usages In Public.' Laat
time It was 'The Bachelor as Guest* Next time we will take up 'The Bachelor
The professor waa very uncommunicative aa to Just what toplca came
under theae heada. "Usages In Public," It waa explained, covered "how to
act on the street or In the theater." Poaslbly It Includea a careful atudy of the
various methods of removing one's hat when meeting a woman on the street
The subject of "The Bachelor as Guest" would naturally Involve such
topics as: What to say when you have spilled soup on the table; how to
manage spaghetti when your hostess Is watching you; the propriety of
gnawing a chop while holding It in your fingers; how to eat grapefruit with-
out squirting the Juice, and "The Proper Remarks to Make When Viewing the
Infant Child of a Relative."
Shreveport Treasure Hunter Keeps on Digging
SHREVEPORT, LA.—Having discovered evidence of what he bellevea la
burled treasure or a gold mine on a piece of ground on Fairfield avenue
owned by Dr. J. M. Comegys in the most exclusive residence district of the city,
a Shreveport contractor named Farm-
er apent all day and part of a night
digging in the plot for hidden wealth.
Farmer claims he was led to the spot
by a divining rod, and he further main-
talns that his divining rod hasn't
played him false, because it leads him
to the exact spot every time he moves.
Farmer, with the assistance of
three negro helpers, labored far Into
the nlgbt In search of the treasure or
mine, or whatever it is, and spadeful
after spadeful of dirt had been re-
moved without results. Late bulletins from the scene indicated that no treas-
ure had been disclosed as yet. though the hole measured four feet deep and aa
many feet in width when the search waa concluded temporarily.
Shreveport Is too far Inland to have been the haunt of Captain Kldd or any
other of our well-known pirates, and the next best guess Is that It Is a gold
mine. Farmer won't quit until he is convinced to his own satisfaction that his
divining rod has pulled a "boner" or that there la really a treasure at the apot
How They Make Street Cars Stop in Chicago
CHICAGO.—John rested hia weight on one foot banged a hollow dinner
against his knee, and watched a Cottage Grove car sail inaolently oy,
bulging with the human-loop sardine John wanted to get home, and there was
lots of room In a supperless stomach
to permit his resentment against the
company to expand.
John was shortly Joined by Joea.
Jims, Harrys, Williams, Horaoea,
Toms, et al., to the number of 200, and
they banged their dinner paila and
watched car after car snort paat Nine-
ty-third and Cottage Grove without
even a tactful healtatlon. They had
observed the phenomenon for ao many
evenings that it had almoat become a
quaint old custom. It may have been
the rakish trolley pole which suggested the ensuing bit of land-piracy, or
possibly the motorman wafted them an exasperating grin. At any rate, the
dinner pale buccaneers picked out one car, pulled off the trolley pole and
swarmed aboard with curses instead of cutlasses between their teeth. Man,
wovnan and child, babea In arms, were sent over the plank with their clammy,
uaeless transfers clasped in hand.
When the passengers had been emptied from the car the raldera broke
windows, tore up seata, and completely wrecked the vehicle. A call aent la
by the crew brought police, but the crowd dispersed at the bluecoats' approach
und no arreats were made.
The proteat waa effective. The car company awltched cars from branch
lines to carry the bad buccaneers home.

TEXT-But thou «haU go unto my
country, and to my kindred, and take a
wife unto my aon Iaaac.—Oan.
The twenty-fourth chapter of Gene-
ala contains the account of the serv-
ant of Abraham
for bis son Isaac.
The chapter la a
long one, contain-
ing 67 verses, and
this fact haa led
many Bible stu-
dents to feel that
the seeking of
Isaac's bride la
typical of some
Such Bible stu-
dents agree that
the chapter well
Uluat rate a the
work of the Holy
Spirit, who ia aent
forth by God the father to call out the
church, which is the bride of him, typi-
fied by Isaac, even Jesus Christ our
Lord. Since the Holy Spirit useB men
in this sacred work, the chapter under
consideration furnishes many points
of instruction for the soul winner.
First of all, we ibte that Abraham's
servant was anxious for the glory of
his master. He prays, "Show klndnesa
unto my master Abraham." This mo-
tive will affect many things In our
Christian service. On one occaalon,
after a sermon, remarkable from the
literary atandpolnt as well aa In otbef
ways, one of the hearers remarked,
"What beautiful language the preacher
uaed." True servants of Christ are
troubled If his face is veiled, even by
beautiful language. They would rath-
er glory In infirmity If the power of
Christ might rest upon them. We have
heard of a church upon the back of
whoae pulpit waa carved this text
"Sirs, we would see Jesus." Every
mlqjpter who sat behind this pulpit
faced thla appeal, and every worker
who haa the spirit of Abraham'a serv-
ant will aeek to heed thla appeal.
Notice again, that the servant of
Abraham received guidance. He
led to the well where Rebekah watered
her flocks and she was pointed out to
him as the bride for hi* master. As
the servant expressed It "I being in
the way, the Lord led me." The writ-
er has a friend who was a pastor In
a southern town. He longed for the
salvation of a man who lived out in the
country, but although he visited his
house, he seemed never to find an op-
portunity to speak with him privately
concerning his soul. On one occasion,
this minister was Impressed that he
should pay a special visit In the hope
of reaching the man In question. As
the impression persisted, he took the
train and finally reached the house.
It looked as if no one were at home
and he began to chide himself for his
foolish trip. Nevertheless, he rapped
at the door, which waa opened by the
man he wished to see and who wel-
comed him heartily, saying, "I am all
alone today and was Just wishing that
you would come here and tell me how
to become a Christian." Undoubtedly
God still leads bis servants.
Again the servant gave gifts to Re-
bekah, Jewels of silver, Jewels of gold
and raiment How happy It Is that
Christian workers* though poor, aa
Paul ^as, may make many rich. Un-
happy the Christian worker who has
nothing better to give than bread and
soup and clothes. Abraham's servant
gave to Rebekah an earnest of the
riches which should be hers when she
came into Isaac's tent So should
Christian workers be filled with an
earnest of the coming glory and scat-
ter its light and blessing to all those
to whom them minister.
We may say a word, also, about the
bride. It will be noted that the serv-
ant found her by the well of water.
These words may fall under the eye of
someone who is sighing to become a
member of the bride of Christ May
not the incident under consideration
suggest to him that he should be found
by the well of water, which may hint
at the means of grace. When Charles
Spurgeon was seeking to know the
love of Christ, he went from church to
church throughout London, trusting
that the word of some minister might
bring to him the blessing he sought
He at last found peace In a Primitive
Methodist chapel, where he had taken
shelter from a snowstorm one Sunday
And what a lesson Is conveyed by
the fact that as soon as Rebekah had
the ring and bracelet upon her hand,
she ran and told them of her moth-
er's houae all that Abraham'a aervant
had said. Aa one haa put It we must
either give our religion away or elaa
five It up.
Carnations and Old-Fashioned Plnka Are Fine for the Hardy Garden,
PLANT YOUR HARDY GARDEN
By E. VAN BENTHUYSEN.
A hardy garden Is the garden for
the busy woman. It will last for years
and be a delight to her and to her
neighbors with a very little care.
Take a careful survey of your re-
sources and make a study of your own
Individual problem. "Book taught"
gardeners may be all right up to a
certain limit, but one season's experi-
ment along your own lines will give
you an insight Into plant life that,
aside from being a most fascinating
study, will teach you more than
years of reading.
Those who wish to plant roses and
not bother with them more than to
prune and fertilize annually and keep
the ground mellow about the plants
should plant hybrid perpetual roses.
The hybrid perpetuals are the hardi-
est of rosea and will stand more cold
weather than any other species.
The following ate desirable speci-
mens: Anne de Diesbach, bright car-
mine; Baroness Rothschild, an ex-
quisite pink; La France, blooms all
summer; Frau Karl Druschkl, snow
white, has splendid buds and immense
flowers, four to five inches across, and
is delightfully fragrant; General Jac-
queminot, a l'Opular rose of brilliant
red; Paul Neyron, lovely dark pink;
Qruss an Tepllts, a strong, vigorous
grower, of richest crimson; Klllarney„
both pink and white, are hardy, and
Mrs. John Lalng, a rose of delicious
fragrance and of a rich satiny pink
A hardy border that ia a triumph of
beauty and has been enjoyed for
years contains hollyhocks, phlox, lark-
spur, foxglove. Iris, columbines, pinks,
and sunflowers. It Is not so expensive,
figures up about six cents per square
foot, but arranged according to size
and color makes a wonderful ahow-
Hardy roses require ordinarily good
garden soil, well enriched with well-
rotted manure. They must have an
open, sunny position clear of the roots
of all trees and shrubs. It Is well to
prepare the bed a few days before
planting to allow for settling. Ever-
blooming roses suould be planted 18
inches apart and the hybrid perpetu-
als two feet apart. RoBes should be
planted with the roots diverging and
at least nine Inches below the surface
of the ground, the soil made firm about
them and then should be liberally wa-
Hollyhocks succeed best in rich,
well-drained soil, and should be light-
ly protected during the winter montha
with coarse straw or spruce boughs.
Larkspur Beed sown in the open
ground early will produce flowering
plants by the beginning of July, and
will give a continuous succession -f
bloom from then until frost. It i ex-
cellent for cutting and very orna-
mental. It produces in a great vari-
ety of forms and colors some of the
most beautiful flowers In cultivation.
A1' varieties are easily cultivated and
adaptable to most conditions, but in
a soil deeply dug and well enriched
with fine old manure, their blooms are
the flneBt Set from one and one ball
to two feet each way.
Old-fashioned clove pink, and its
more elegant relation, the carnation,
flower so easily as an annual that It
has attained a most popular position
among garden plants. The beautiful
(lowers make an attractive display
with their world of color, and are
greatly to be desired aB a table deco-
ration and also as a border plant.
Pinks grow easily from seed and
come true to color. Sow out of doore
when danger from frost is over. II
the seed is sown early enough the
perennials will bloom the first year.
There are a great many other plants
that are hardy and desirable, this ti
but a mere beginning. Choose the
flowers you are fond of and the work
will be more successful and more
pleasant. But have a garden now, na
matter how email.
