self and with even our good American
citizens grown fussy over questions of
precedence Major McKinley his sec-
retary of state and all the high facto-
tums of the executive mansion have
been at their wits' end to keep things
going. The president has to be ex-
tremely careful when he takes Mrs.

and England again linked arms as Sir
Julian Pauncefote and Mrs. McKinley
stepped together. So far all is excel
lently well. Then the next ranking
ambassador offers his arm to the next
ranking -ambassador's wife not his
own and they proceed together. Then
the next alter the next ranking am
bassador moves towards tbe next after
the next ranking ambassador's wife
not his own. This brings Mexico's
ambassador and tbe Baroness Hengel-
muller together. The baroness Is the
wife of Austria's representative.
She demurs. She goes to her hus-
band whispers something in bis ear
the baron goes to Major McKinley and
tells him. The major confers with his
secretary of state and with the chlefest
factotum of the White House over the
difficulty for Austria refuses to go to
dinner on tbe arm of Mexico because
of the Maximilian affair. The dinner
party has to be rearranged. Tbe Mex-
ican gentlemen is asked to escort an-
other guest the baroness is sent out
with a diplomat of insufficient rank but
one whose country has not recently af-
fronted her country and the 'aggrieved
lady who so conscientiously mi'ntalns
the aggrlevance of her country is sa-
tisfied. The red . coated marines
sound the cymbals the drums and
horns the violets and roses languish in
the brilliant rooms the ladies chatter
again and tbe Incident is closed for
the evening but not for gossips the
Besides the tangle of affairs that this
inability of Austria to meet Mexico at
any teas dances dinners or social
functions whatsoever brings about
there are other troubles that tbe diplo
mats have found. They have been
much hurt because the president has
allowed the daughters of cabinet of-
ficers to receive In the line when the
diplomats were invited to the White
House. It is urged by the foreigners
that these daughters have not suffi-
cient rank. That only the wives of
cabinet officers have sufficient rank to
receive ambassadors and 6ucb. They
contend that if a daughter is the head
of the house and the lady who always
represents her father socially that is
another matter. She shares her fath-
er's dignity. Such a case is that of
Secretary Wilson. His daughter is the
lady of bis house her mother being
dead. But the titled foreigners do not
want the young things who are only
daughters pure and simple to think
that they can step in their mothers'
place if for some reason the cabinet
officer's wife is obliged ti be absent
and receive men who represent the
person of royalty.
Furthermore it seems that it is
highly eptirely hopelessly complete-
ly wrong to invite a diplomat of great-
er dignity to meet one of lesser. A
Minister Plenipotentiary and Ambas-
sador Extraordinary represents the
yery person of his majesty from whose
realm be came and he cannot be invit-
ed to meet anything less than a senior
ambassador extraordinary and minister
plenipotentiary a monarch or presi-
dent. Leaser men should be invited
to meet him and he rides his dignity
very fiercely and very high if this
point be forgotten.
All this ought to be vary serious
reading. It is very neoessary and it
probably keeps pomp and ceremony
and pride and lots of other delightful
thingsof life agoing. But to people who
are out of it all and do nut have to
worry over hurt feelings and Injured
pride it Is rare comedy. It seems

just what we propose to have." Thie
la what W. H. Rlggs said last evening
and Mr. Rlggs ought to know for it is
he who is arranging to take to New

brated toreros who are this season

signal success. '
"I am just from tbe city" continued
Mr. Rlgge"where I bave had the di-
rection of the tour of Madame Sohalol

two gentlemen and conceived the idea
of exhibiting them in New York. I

little and yet it is not entirely insig-
nificant. Those whose days are quiet
and whose joys are unorowded - can af-
ford to do away with strict social codes
and put aside tbe barriers that mark
off the ways of official society. But in
the official social life which must oe in
Washington though it be far very
far from having the circumscribed

Bishop Spauldlng has said that
whenever woman's suffrage comes up
for discussion he sets forth one argu-
ment that women are responsible for
tbe prevalence of dyspepsia among
mankind and thus prove their lack of
practical intelligence. The adequacy
of this argument as against the whole
question of woman's suffrage may be
denied. That women are cot good
cooks is no complete reason nor neces-
sarily any reason why they should not
be good voters. IN or is it admitted
that the statement is wholly true.
There Is no doubt that men eat so fast
they'd have dyspepsia anyway even if
a perfect diet were served them but
that also is a side issue.- There is
working truth in the bishop's state-
ment. Women are largely- respon-
sible for the world's dyspepsia and
also have an Important share in the
world's drunkenness. That this
Is so does argue against their
claims to practical intelligence but
not necessarily against their claims
to tbe suffrage. Most women
cook by luck. They know nothing of
chemistry physiology or the eoienoe
of dietetics. Almost none ever give a
moment's thought to the proportions
of food values. They do not think to
make any dlffeence in providing for
farmer or for a brain worker who lives
a 6edentary life. They make no dis
tinctiob between children and adults
and know very little of proper diets
for the sick. Some women by sheer
luck provide enough nourishment for
their families but are not careful to
have the food palatable; they drive
their sons and husbands to the saloons
where their palates may be stimulated
and pleased and their daughters to the
candy shop and to the drug store for
chewing gum. Other women know
something of garnishlngs spiclngs
and sauces and they have a certain
skill to please the palate but are in
different to the supply of nourishment
The men of their households need beer
or wblsky for a stimulant and the girls
try to satisfy their appetites with
It is an eaeily proved fact that when
men women and children are provided
with ample fresh nourishing appetiz
lng food with a wholesome proportion
oi meat and drink vegetable and fruit
that they have no compelling desire to
stop at drug stores saloons candy
ehop3 and bakeries for something to
nibble and sip at. The Woman's
Christian Temperanoe Union could
achieve its worthy purpose a thousand'
times sooner by spreading the scienti-
fic knowledge of food and Its' skillful
preparation in establishing cooking
schools and fighting pernicious adulter-
ation of table foods than by the
roucd -about method of getting a mil-
lion autographs in an immense roll.
There are men who contend that
woman is not naturally a cook. That
only one or two women have ev6r been
famous for their cooking while many
men have made it a wonderful art
that it is therefore no true field for
her or she would oftener use her brain
In it. Inasmuch however as most
women have to cook and rightly cr
wrongly it is one of their important
fields women might as well acknow-
ledge that they have not put their beet
intelligence into the work have not
done tbeir duty by it and determine
to lead better lives and get better din-
ners and breakfasts and know some-
thing of the why of it all.
The fad of fads just now seems to be
tbe pig-skin finger purses which are
commended because they are proof
against the wily pick-pockets and
purse thieves. The purse consists of
two or three fiat pockets and has two
flaps folding down over each otber.
There is a strap across which holds
the flaps down and also serves as a
sort of handle. My lady slips two
fingers or three if she be able
through this strap and thus holding
the pocket book right side up she has
a firm grip on it and besides has liber-
ty enough of the same band to" allow
her to carry her umbrella or lift her
Sleeves are about as small as sleeves

This is as to size around. In length

James A. Biird tie well known cat-

friend in the person of John H. Ililey
of Colorado Springs who is the man-
ager of the large cattle concern known
as the Colorado Alfalfa and Cattle
company. The two gentlemen are
friends of long standing and are both
well known In west Texa? and New
Mexico when they have for over two
decades been prominent in financial
and political circles. An investigation
develops the fact that Mr. Riley arriv
ed in El Paso over tbe Mexloan Cen-
tral from Chihuahua somewhere about
seven o'clock Thursday evening and
happening to meet Mr. Lsatrd on tne
street they forthwith wandered into
tbe Acme saloon. Shortly afterward
Mr. Riley excused himself for a mo
ment and stepped to the rear of tbe
saloon. That is the last Mr. Baird ha9
eeen of him up to date. Mr. Bird

lished in the hope that it may lead to
