German Fema'e Scholar's Sharp Criticism on President
"Sato echlmtacher S*y» That Boosevelt'B Twelv* , »way* Contain No Mention of Woman—The Essays Are Glutted with the Word Virile. Special Cable.
Paris. June 18.—"How can any writer, however gifted, undertake to pbrtray the Ideals of a nation without mentioning woman even in a single syllable?" asks Kate Schirtrtacher, (Dr. Philosophy), the learned advocate of woman's advance, and continues: "The president of the United States, a country where woman sufferage exists to a certain extent, a country where woman plays a paramount part, the president of the United Hates, *I said, should talk of more than -illty when speaking of the ideate of the American nation." Thus Dr. Kate winds up her criticism of Theodore Roosevelt's American ideals and other essays, brought out In French by Armant Colin. "The twelve essays of this handsome volume have the same tendency througnout, that of Imparting love of country to citizens of the United States; furthermore, they discourage egotism and extol military virtues. Of^the latter President Roosevelt, ex-colonel of the Rough Riders, is excessively fond. He is a friend of active political life, a friend of battling in every possible form. The chapters recording his political experience in congress is most instructive and even piquant. But there is a glut of the word 'virile' in Mr. Roosevelt's pages. If Mr. Roosevelt had substituted 'energetic' for 'virile,' the subject matter would not have suffered a bit, seeing that the virtues he praises are not the monopoly of men only, but are frequently met in women, too. However, the worst fault of the book is that tho president ignores woman altogether.' "

PRIESTESS, DEAD CENTURIES AGO, STILL POTENT TO SLA Y AND AFFLICT
Death or Dire Misfortune Has Befallen Nearly All Who Have Had Anything To Do With Her Mummy Case, Taken From Ancient Thebes—Facts Alone Contained in This Narrative of Supernatural Power.
Special Cable.
¥ ONDON, June Ifl—-Few tales of ocI cult fiction have been more exttaorr*—'dlnary than the weird atory of a munrmy-cafle at the British museum and its supposed death-dealing powers, which hajg Just been told by B. Fletcher Robinson In a X/ondou newspaper. The narrative's trutih. however, is vouched for. by the Writer, who, besides being the intimate friend of Sir A. Conan Doyl«, is a newspaper man of much repute, and herewith are sent two pictures which it is maintained furnish Indisputable evidence that the thing 18 far from a mere invention. One of ->these pictures represents the painted cover of the mummy^case. which now is reposing In a corner of the nrst Egyptian room of the museum, but whiah once covered tiiie embalmed remains of a priestess of the College of Amen Ra. and who lived In the mighty city of Thebes some l.eob years before Christ. Tlie , work Is still In a beautiful state of pres- | ^ ervation and depicts a woman of singularly baleful expression whose dark eyes stare into vacancy, as though seeking there some clew to tlje riddle of .the universe, while her hands are peacefully crossed upon iher breast. The other picture was the result of a London photographer's attempt to obtain a picture of the strange face shown on the coffin lid. To the man's amazement, when a print was taken from the negative it revealed not a dead face, but apparently a living one, -with wide open eyes, and the baleful expression of the painted effigy heightened to one of intense malignancy. It was Fletcher Robinson, readers may i | remember, to whom Dr. Doyle publicly ; £ acknowledged his indebtedness for the I j plot of his "Hound of the Baskervilles." « Until recently, too, fine teller of the fol- j J The Malevolent Living Face.

StTI/TAX OV TURKEY'S SUPEBB NEW STEAM YACHT, THE EBTH OCHUJ AL. In her interior arrangements, furnishing- and decorating, no expense has been spared by Abdul Haxnid to make her a miniature floating palace equal to the pleasure yacht of any other European monarch. She is armed with several quick-firing cannon and could be. utilized as a gunboat.
