A woman was arraigned for beg-
.;ir. and vagrancy in the Essex
narket police court in New 'York a
"ew weeks ago who had amontj her
belongings a heavy bundle tied ir
i bnje colored handkerchief in
jvliidrwerc found over $70 :n pen-
nies and other small coin the who!'
mass weighing more than fifteen
pounds. This according to the wo-
man's own story she had collected
in two weeks seated on the curl
at a certain corner on the Bowcr
with a plate in her lap. And sti!
more interesting was the disclosur'-
made by a bank book of a saving
bank in Syracuse N. Y. in her pos
session showing an account to tb-
woman's credit of over ? 1000. I
appeared also xhat the woman h:
three grown children living in Syr-
acuse who were able to care for
her. Yet so woebegone and poverty-stricken
did the woman appeal
when arraigned in court that n'
until her hoardings were disclose
would even a police court shystcx
take up her case.

A Story of an Early Roxburgh.
The marriage of the young Duke
of Roxburghe to Miss May. Goelet
recalls to the London Chronicle tiv
romantic attachment of one of hi
predecessors which very nearly eiKi
ed in the extinction of the duk?
dom altogether. It is a century an
a half as near as may be sir.---John
third Duke of Roxburghe ie
"n love with the charming Giri.
tina Princess of Mecklenburg-Sic
litz. . His affection was return?
and all promised well when th
lady's younger sister Charlotte be
came affianced to George III. J
was tliougbt impossible that "t
Queen of England's elder sistt-
should marry a British subject a..-
Christina's engagement was broke'
off. The princess died unman---and
so did the duke who console
himself by becoming the greir.c
bibliophile in the kingdom: t..
Roxburghe Club was founded
"his family library with its copy o
V'aldarfer's Boccaccio. His -kir.
man and successor alio died wnta

Company. The artMlery company
is' th oldest organization in the
United .States having been granted

independent and has in its ranks
many of the best young men of
Newport and the surrounding
towns. The Newport Artillery

Amerioan Apple9 in Germany.
Last year witnessed a great in-
:rcase in the imports of American
apples into Germany. For the first
eight months of 1903 the imports
were 3696 metric tons of 2204
pounds each against 214 tons and
543 tons during the same periods in
1902 and 1901. Of American dried
fruit baked and simply preserved
the German imports for the same
period were 25251 'tons against
11981 and 12060 tons respective-
ly in 1002 and ioox.
Lancashire's Mock Mayor.
A tiny Lancashire hamlet elects
a mock mayor each year. The resi-
dents of the village find great en-
tertainment in masquerading as
'tlie ancient borough of Worston."
WitJi splendid seriousness the can-
didates issue addresses and all the
residents of the neighborhood arc
supplied with voting papers. The
duly elected mayor always assumi.-
the style of a privy councilor and
the rank of a knight. The holder of
the office for several vears has been
"the Right Hon. Sir William Bul-
cock" a kborer. He has his robes
of office a gorgeous cocked hat and
huge brass chain and badge. The
corporation meets at the village inn
and there ponderously discusses
such moving questions as the re-
painting of finger posts. At the
coronation of Edward this mock
borough had its civic rejoicings and
forwarded an address to the King
who acknowledged it as courteous-
ly as he did the congratulations oi
London or Edinburgh.

senator gruffly. "But even if 1
didn't own it am I riot a privilege"
passenger by reason of beingj :
'I believe that platforms are for
politicians to get in on but not tr
stand on" replied the conductor.
The senator promptly stepped
through the door.

A conductor on a street car
Portland Ore. reduced a noisy
drunken man on his car to a state

uanner which has yet been report
ed. The man who had been cde
brating was seated at the end o
