Presents to Children Has a Remarkable Memory and Knowledge and Deciphers the most Puzzllnc Addresses Tucked away in a little corner of the Postoffico Department at Washing ton behind a desk which has held a thousand interesting stories sits a charming white haired woman who is known the length and breadth of the land as Mrs Santa Claus The woman to whom this suggestively dear name has been given is Mrs MRS SANTA CLAUS Patti Lyle Collins head of the Open ing and Unmailable Division of the Postofilce Department Each holiday season brings to her desk thousands and thousands of Santa Claus letters and were she of the ordinary type of clerk thinking only of the salary she draws twice a month these letters might go into Uncle Sams waste basket without so much as a thought for the writers Not so with Mrs Collins Through her generous heart her love for chil dren and possibly with a memory or two of her own when she too believed in the real existence of the childrens patron saint this lovable woman at tends first to her duties of returning the letters to their writers if this 13 possible and then sho plays Mrs Santa Claus to her army of little friends Christmas Presents to the Children When such a thing is possible Mrs Collins finds out the addresses of these children sends them some little thing they have asked for and gets her friends interested in them until she has now earned the title which came to her so long ago merely through her associations with this part of Uncle Sams postoffice This is rather the sentimental side of Mrs Collins work but there is an other and scientific phase of it which has made her invaluable to the Gov ernment She is the official chlro graphical expert of the Department and through her efforts each year ninety per cent of mall matter bear ing manifestly Indecipherable addresses finds Its way to the person to whom it is addressed Mrs Collins Is a linguist and a deep student Added to this she has stored away in her brain a fund of general 1UlGtclv tomhyja rit hit41W 9 rr+ 006IIlowledge which enables her to solve riablems which would puzzle a hun dred other heads Her knowledge of streets in various cities of Europe led to her compilation of a street directory of its countries The valifc of Mrs Collins work in ferreting out addresses is all the more notable when It is considered that each postofflce In all the large cities has a division especially set apart for de ciphering illegible and otherwise puz zling addresses So after this has been done letters which are still unclaimed are sent to the postofflco at Washington Knows All Languages Mrs Collins has made such a study of this rather psychological work that she knows just what section of the country even to the cities in which various natlonaltles have settled She I can put her finger on the Japanese the Chinese Greeks Spaniards Italians and all the rest of them This particular talent has enabled Mrs Collins to decipher many a letter Which would have beon otherwise un intelligible Among tho hundreds of such which she received the other day was one addressed to Ygnac Lech Combryja Co brat etryt no 903 Szanony Pan How many or rather how few peo ple would have known how to go about locating this person Tho letter was postmarked Florence Mrs Collins own store of information told her that tho Cambria Iron Works of Johns town Pa was employing a largo num ber of Italians and she sent tho letter on Sure enough Mr Yanac Lech was there and received tho letter which without Mrs Collins assist ance would never have fallen into his handsA shident at tho University of Virginia wrote to a young society girl in Washington and addressed the envelope entirely in Greek It takes greater obstacles than that to balk Mrs Collins and the young woman re reived her letter as promptly as If It had been addressed in tho most legible English hand The list of such letters is almost unlimited in length A Spaniard sent a letter to Sr Fer nado Maya Fuerte galen

republican committees In the last three presidential campaigns and John A MeCulI president of the New York Life Insurance Company admitted that he had contributed 150000 of the companys funds to the same committees In fact the big companies have frequently been contributors to both political parties Public May Demand Legislation There two questions Involved in any fair consideration of these

by One Man The soldiers of the United States En gineers Corps seem to have solved one of the greatest problems which has confronted generals in command of an army when on the march Small un fordable streams are often encountered by the army and these must be crossed in the shortest time possible In fact largo rivers often confront an army when about to gh e battle to the enemy and it would take weeks if not months to construct even temporary bridges to allow the men with their heavy armaments to cross The pontoon boat of course is well known to every reader of history for this most useful THE PRESIDENTS TURKEY auxiliary came Into great use during the war of the Rebellion The pon toon train however is a very cum bersomo affair when the ordinary flat bottom boat with tile necessary tim

soldiers of the United States Engineer Battalion have been drilling in tho use of pontoon boats made of heavy canvass stretched over a wooden frame These boats are wa tertight and when assembled are cap able of supporting six or more men A boat may be taken apart and packed Into a small bundle light enough to be carried by one man Upon arrival at a small stream all that Is necessary Is for each man to unstrap his bundle quickly put the boat Into shape and launch it into the water The wagons which must necessarily carry the tim bering and flooring of the bridge to be can be sent forward with a much smaller guard than Is necessary when the cumbersome pontoon train wagons each carrying a boat or section are In motion One Good Use forMillionaires Regret has been often expressed re gardlng

guests they usually entrust all the preparations to professional caterers but when it comes to the dinner which is preeminently the home meal of the year the French chefs have to give way to women who know Just how to rrepare the generous wholesome dishes that an American citizen looks forward to finding on his dinner table on the joyous holiday President Roosevelt also shows a fondness for carving the turkey himself- A good old fashioned Christmas dinner moreover with all the essentials from turkey to plum pudding is a reg ular institution at the White House during the present administration Perhaps President Roosevelt with his assertive good health and his fam- Ily of lively young folks are particu ly well qualified to appreciate a rous ing yuletide feast but whatever bo the reason certain it is that during the Roosevelt regime the Christmas re past has become one of the most im portant as well as one of the jolliest meals of the year To Be Family Reunion President Roosevelt and his family follow the general policy of all pre vious occupants of the White House in observing Christmas as a family fes tival This year it will have especial significance as a reunion since of late months the junior members of the Roosevelt household have been scat tered as never before by reason of their attendance at different schools and colleges The Roosevelt Christ mas while a family affair is by no means confined to the immediate household The Roosevelt children have long been allowed to entertain their numerous cousins on Christmas and other relatives are likewise in at tendance while

The dinner IB prepared in the re fitted White House kitchens which are located la the basement directly below the private dining room There are two kitchens one about 25 by 40 feet in size and opening from It a smaller kitchen of about onehalf the size Or dinarily the equipment of the smaller or family kitchen is sufficient for the preparation of the dinner for a select party at the Executive

for thirtyfive years past has sent each year a magnificent specimen of the king of fowls for the Presidents Christmas dinner Gobblers from Far and Wide Indeed the Presidents Christmas dinner does not cost him very much for Uncle Sam pays the wages of many of the White House employees who have a hand in preparing it and almost all of the goodie which grace the itS tive board are donated by admiring

cranberries from Cape Cod a parcel of the famous HuosiVcU potatoes sent by the farm hands on the Presidents estate at Oyster Bay and other delicacies sent by neighbors far and near Such marketing as is necessary to fill out the menu for the Presidents Christmas dinner is done by Henry Pinckney a colored man who holds the position of White House Steward and draws a salary of 1800 a year from the government for managing the domestic affairs at the White House A day or two before Christmas Steward Pinck ney sets out in the unpretentious vehicle which serves as the Presidents private market

THE DESERT GROUSE KNOWN AS TUB SAGE HEN AND COCK or TilE PLAINS A TYP ICAL AMERICAN BIRD Is the Largest of the Grouses and Feeds Mostly on SageHas a handsome Coat of Plumes and Makes a Savory Roast The desert grouse Is a representa tive American bird It Is of course not as exalted anti heroic us the eagle and Is not spread over so wide an area as the common chicken but for all that the desert grouse Is typically American The bird Is moro famil iarly known to travelers dwellers in the arid nrrd semiarid regions of the United States and sportsmen as the sage hen and as a matter of course where there are sage lions there are sage cocks Often the bird Is referred to as the prairie chicken but the ref erence is Inaccurate It is a game bird of great beauty It was named Cock of the Plains by Lewis and Clark who though perhaps not the first whites to make the acquaintance of this bird at least were the first white men to identify it as a distinct ornithological species and to pause long enough in the anions business of exploration to give it a name Found Throughout the Arid Region It Is seen in nil the arid nnd semi arid parts of the land where it has not been exterminated nnd Is very common in those great ciry stretches of the continent where man has not crowded it to death and whore the sago brush grows To say that this bird has its home In the droughty re gions of the United States is to say how extensively it Is distributed for everybody who knows anything about the country knows how vast Is that empire laid down on the early maps as desert The word desert as applied to the umvatcred reaches of the west is misleading On those des erts there Is plenty of vegetation and animal life Though in nutty places water is scarce life may be easUy sustained in these American deserts Ir rigation shows how fertile those lands are when the water is poured on All over dry lands grows that wild shrub called by botanists nrtomlsia but which everybody else calls sago brush Feeds Mostly on Sage No doubt It belongs to the same family as does the garden sago of tillIi H THE The extent of the government IrrlI gallon problem is Indicated by a rec eat schedule Issued by the Reclama tion Service of the Interior Depart ment showing thnt the work of reclaiming the desert Is well under wayI At this time the government plan Ini various stages of progress requiring the expenditure of 32870000 which will supply water for the Irrigation of 1S39000 acres of land the expense being 1750 per acre Other govern ment reports estimate that there are about 000000000 acres of socalled arid lanL whose chief products are age brush and cactus This amounts to more than onethird of the United States and out of wlch might be carved four countries the size of France four more us large as Ger many anti two states as large ns New York Private has reclaim ed about 10000000 of this domain which Is today the backbone of the West The enormous possibilities of the government irrigation work is east It has the dustgreen color of sage smells like sage tastes like sage and nnlumls that feed on Its leaves and yellow flowers flavor their flesh with sage Well wherever this plant grows the desert grouse may be found The grouse feeds and fattens on sage There is nothing he likes better Ho must have It Let the sago be de stroyed and the bird moves on The desert grouse Is the largest grouse of the western world and it is exceeded in size only by the great grouse of Europe the capercailzie It Is very superior In size and strength to tho common prairie hen or the pinnated grouse usually weighing twice or thrice as much as that bird It will measure two or three feet from tip of wing to tip Living in a gray land nature has provided for the protec tion of the bird by making it also gray It Is curious now nature looks after Its creatures by making their color ns a rule harmonize with the landscape In grouseland there Is a great deal of alkali In the soil and- over that grows the graygreen shrub bery The sage grouse seeks Its safety In concealment rather than In flightHandsome Though not Brilliant Though the general color effect of the grouse is gray yet It huts markings of white nnd black A large black patch underneath the birds body is a feat ure of the desert grouse On his shoulders he wears cpauletts of white The reason for these white shoal ders is that in browsing through the sago brush all his flays the heavy gray feathers are worn off exposing tho line white nether feathers highflyer his eastern cousin possesses great leg power lie Is active nnd speedy as 111 runner rather quick to take fright and amongthestood that these birds do not rise from cover They often do limiters seek so to frighten the birds that they will rise It is not difficult shooting then The grouse of the desert hits that general grouse trait tile whirr When he rises It is said that he whirrs louder than the eastern grouse When thoroughly roused to his task he Is a pretty strong flyer and can go a mile nt n stretch alternately sailing and flappingThe flesh of the desert grouse Is good when not too cagey The young birds when feeding on grasshoppers are unsurpassed for tenderness and flavor The older birds as with all the other feathered tribes are not so tender ns the young When feeding exclusively on sage their flesh is strongly Impregnated with the flavor of shrub somewhat unpleasantly so Ono is runluvled of the taste of partridge meat when that bird has been feeding on resinous buds in the au tumn He Trusted Rockefeller Dr Gustav C E Weber of Cleveland Ohio recently consul at Nurem burg bono of the pioneer doctors of his city Years ago ho was visited by a young man who required a surgical operation but explained that ho was only getting fifty dollars a month and would have to pay by Installment Weber said he would risk It and It took tho youth about a year to pay up The lad was John D Rockefeller andonly a short time ago he sent for Weber asking for medical advice there having been a recurrence of the trouble for which Weber had operated forty years ago Wehor made an examina tion and told Mr Rockefeller that any medical student could do it and that ho himself was out of practice Rocke feller opened a drawer counted out 500 and handing the roll to Weber remarked It does not take so long to pay the bill this time Weber de clined the money saying he wished no fee for a friendly visit Take It said Rockefeller and give to some poor medical student who is struggling for his education Weber remarked In telling the story that ho couldnt think of any struggling medical student jU3t then and but what was the all ment that required a surgical opera tion FIRST COMPLETED GOVERNMENT IRRIGATION CANAL I enterprise shown by the various expert estimates which place the additional area which cnn bo Irrigated at from 75000000 to 100000000 acres The government plan as provided for In the Irrigation law Is to store the flood waters of the western rivers reclaiming this land as fast as possible but the settlers who talc the land are required to pay back to the government the cost of the construction of each project so that the actual expense to the gov ernment will all be paid The final estimates of the possibilities of increased population are one person to each Irrigated acre so that there seems a future population for the West as great or greater than the to tal population of the country today highly West is stated to be sufliclent for the support of a family owing to the fact that under irrigation numerous and sure crops ron be raised In the Southwest three or four crops nre grown on the same land each year u CATHOLIC DIVORCES d VATICAN ANNULS MARRIAGES IX CERTAIN CASESATTOR KEYS OF ST PETER Ambassador Whitelaw Reid appoints son of English Earl as Chief Lacke- yTheTlppingQuestlonOther For eign Gossip It Is stated on authority that the Vatican will always annul a marriage If It can bo proved to Its entire satisfaction that one or the other of the parties to the alliance was not a free agent In the matter One of tho most notable cases of annulment of a prince 1ly marriage on grounds such as these was the dissolution some years ago of tho marriage bonds of the reigning Prince of Monaco and his first wife Lady Mary Hamilton At the same time the Vatican pronounced the marriage null and void It also pronounced that her son was in every sense of the word legitimate Princess Mary whose reigninghonsethe English Duke of Hamilton was forced by her kinsman and guardian POPE PIUS X tho late Emperor Napoleon to give her hand in marriage to Albert of Monaco The latter showed himself a singularly neglectful and unkind husband and her lifo at Monte Carlo became so intoler able that she took to flight carrying her infant child with her She sought refuge at Florence where the Italian police acting on behalf of the Prince made a sensational attempt to take the boy away from her The plot was frus trated by the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia who took mother and infant under her protection and defied the Italian authorities to cross the thres hold of her residence Princess Mary after that married Count Tassllo Fes tetlcs of Tolna one of the magnates of the AustroHungarlan Empire who I occupied an excellent position at the Court of Vienna Prince Albert of Monaco married again the next Prin cess of Monaco being an American girl a daughter of a New Orleans banker Michael Heine His second matri monial venture however turned out as unfortunate as the first a divorce breaking the ties between them One most important factor in defend ing the rights of the Roman Catholic Church and adding to the perfection of its wonderful and thoroughworking machine is the order or society of Tho Attorneys of St Peter It is peopltInthis order of legal counsellors of the Vatican which in this country is rep resented by somo of tho brightest legal minds It is composed of eminent Roman Catholic lawyers in different parts of the world with branches in the various great capitals The order was founded by Pius IX and tho first of the statutes of the order indicates its object restricting as it does the membership to those members of the legal profession who have given ade quate proofs of their unselfish devotion especially signia of the order is a medallion show ing a violet cross on a white enameled ground I believe I am correct In say ing that Cardinal Rampolla has charge of the order Our Ambassador at the Court of St James Mr Whitelaw Reid has at last appointed his chief lackey He Is the lIon William Walsh The post bestowed upon the lIon Walsh is that of controller of Mr Reids house hold nn office quite unknown in this democratic country of ours but which exists in many aristocratic families in England and in all royal establish ments from the Kings down In reality the comptroller Is a species of upper servant ranking several degrees higher than a chief butler whose business it Is to see that all domestic matters run smoothly Mr Reid Is the llrst American ambassa dor to employ such a functionary but no other American ambassador to the Court of St James has lived in so much style as Mr Reid maintains As that is what Americans seem to ex- peCt of their representatives abroad nowadays when they pay for it out of their own pockets Mr Reid is really to be congratulated on his suc cess In obtaining the services of the son of a belted earl as his chief lackey The Hon Walsh Is the third son of Lord Ormnthwaltc Third sons of peers are usually no t well off

be called youthful she Is several years younger than her Uance As far as pedigree counts for any thing however the lIon Walsh Is no bad match for her for he can boast ducal blood too If tho Duke of Devonshires rule against any of his servants accepting tips could be successfully introduced in this country all would be well There are a few of the old nobility of Eng land who set a laudable example of prohibiting their servants accepting gratuities from visitors or guests The Duke of Devonshire for instance makes it an inflexible rule that no servant of his shall take a tip When however a party of Americans recent ly visited Chatsworth the Dukes Derbyshire seat and were entertained to luncheon and shown over the beautiful grounds by the Dukes steward the leaders of the party thought the usual shell out must be the climax of the days enjoyment The party consisted of four men and three women and among them 35 was subscribed With commendable discretion the money was not offered to the steward who of course 13 above accepting recognition of the kind but to an underfootman who saw the party to and from the railway station But the footman pointed out that it was against the rules of the Dukes establishment to accept gratuities In money That seemed to suggest a way of getting around the rule The next day various articles of jewelry reached the stew ard from London with the request that they be distributed among the staff at his discretion The leaders of the party were Edmund H Abbott of New York and Alexander Cattanach of Salem Mass and both had introductions from Sir Thomas Lipton Tho Duke and Duchess were not in residence at Chatsworth at the time of the visit but the latter sent one of her maids specially up from London to look after the ladles Tho beauties of

cart near one of his country palaces one day and caught up with an old fish woman who was trudging to tho vil lage to sell her wares Sho did not recognize the king and asked him for a lift Ho responded graciously and helped her into the cart As they drove along she begged him to Guy her fish pleading poverty and a big family at home Tho king said he had plenty of fish at home and would not buy any However he would give her his portrait which he thought would be just as good as buying her fish Yo are a fine looking man but your portrait would not buy shoes for the children said the old woman Oh I think it will help you he responded and handed her a sovereign which has on one side his profile When sho saw that she was riding with the king and spilled her fish The king handed her another coin and dropped her out at her destination At another time when ho was Prince and attending a theatre a fire broke out near by and every one helped to quench the blaze Tho Prince in evening dress worked with the others in passing buckets of water A big pompous man was standing by doing nothing Why dont you help asked the Prince The pompous man swelled up and remarked I am a gentleman sir and do no such menial tasks Dont let that hurt you responded the Prince I am only the Prince of Wales If Cost Discovering America The great extent and value of Queen Isabels jewel bag the proceeds or which fitted out Columbus is more or less of a myth But in these days when millionaire yachtsmen spend a hundred thousand dollars for a little racing yacht and think nothing of it the ex pense of Columbuss whole fleet seems entirely Insignificant The sum of 3000 covered the whole outlay neces sary to secure and equip the three vessels while the Great Admirals salary was 300 per annum The two other commanders were paid 200 each and the wages of the crow were 2fK a month Of course money In those days was worth a great deal more than now and there were not very many places In America at that
