BUTLER LOSES HIS SUIT AGAINST ENGALITCHEFFS. Because He Served Meat Before Soup When Princess Had Guests at Dinner He "Was Discharged Justly. Butler Leon Genet served the meat before the soup when the Princess Engalitcheff had Invited guests to dinner. This convinced Justice Bradwell that Genet and his wife had no claim on the prince and he dismissed their suit yesterday, holding that they had received all the wages due them. Genet twitched nervously as he sat in the .witness chair. He said he and his wife were to receive $60 a month wages, he being butler and she cook. The witness claimed that they had been discharged after working fifteen days. He admitted that when he left he received a check for $34. Prince Engalitcheff testified that he had engaged Genet and his wife, believing that they were competent. He said he found they knew nothing about the work. The princess testified that Genet had broken a cut glass bowl valued at $40 and a Venetian pitcher valued at $50. " Besides breaking dishes," she continued, " Leon served the meat before the soup when I had invited guests to dinner. Then he broke one of my guest's plates and forgot to serve another." Christian, Endtarorert to Meet. Qulncy, 111.. July 7. The biennial convention of the Illinois Christian endeavor will begrin here on Thursday. Fully 1,600 delegates and members ere expected to attend. YE To the observant gardener all nature seems kindly. Make garden always when faith Is low and optimism seems the cheerfulness of fools. "When getting the window boxes and garden urns ready use good, fresh soil. Nothing is gained, and much may be lost, by economizing in the matter of earth. ' There Is an lpomoea, sometimes catalogued as a cypress vine, which has foliage like that of the English try. This vlns bears blossoms of bright orange tinted with scarlet, and is admirable for porch or garden use. The peonies make June lovely. A peony hedge or clump Is a sight to remember. The present time, too, is the best time to remember it; next year, in the blooming season, it will be too late to do anything but order roots for still another summer. Use a fine spray in watering the flowers. A hard, sharp stream works much mischief, and heavy drops are not good for delicate blossoms. The leaves should never be sprayed In briet sunshine, nor should the roots be too heavily drenched. If the tiny blue forget-me-not seems weak or uncertain, supplement the plants already owned with new ones. One would not miss the loveliness of this sweet blue blossom, and there are seasons when It is difficult to make old plants thrive. The sweet alyssum, by this time, should be strong, " stocky." and six inches high. If allowed to grow and wander at will it will acquire an untidy, straggling habit. Cut back two inches from the roots, and it will develop Into a thick, sturdy mass of white sweetness, and will blossom until' late in the fall. Scarlet and while geraniums, planted together, should be so pruned and trimmed as to maintain the color lines and contrasts These plants are sometimes inclined to be willful, but will yield to the will of the gardener when they must. Keep the blossoms picked continually if prolonged blooming is desired. Asters need a sunny location. Many varieties do not bloom until the sunshine has lost some of its power and fervid heat. Transplant the young arters to a locality where they can have suitable cu'ture. and the red, white, pink, purple, and yellowish blossoms will provide a glory of color pa Ui almost tlmie for frost.

NEWS OF THE RAILWAYS. ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO DIVIDE IMMIGRANT BUSINESS. ' Hurea-a Will Try Agraln Today to Overcome Dissatisfaction Records of Fourth, of July Business Broken Alton Road Is Experimenting; with Locomotives of Varlons Patterns Sprinkling' Santa Fe Right of AVay with Oil Proves to Be a Success. Another attempt will be made by the Immigrant bureau of the Western passenger association today to adjust the question of the division of the business of that class among the western lines. All such attempts In the -.-evlous meetings have been fruitless, ""ver since a number of the western lines -'Irew from the agreement the question een a troublesome one. The dissatis-n of some of the roads over their al-share of the business causes all the .le. .n effort will be made to adjust the differ ences o& an entirely new basis, and It Is pre dicted that a larger share or tne Dusiness will be offered the lines which have been blocking any compromise. While some of the roads interested are hopeful of a settle ment, the offlclala of the lines which heretofore have enjoyed the bulk of that class of traffic aroear to be Indifferent. The meeting- will be held In the offices of the Western passenger association, and a full attendance Is expected. Big Fourth of July Business. All previous fourth of July passenger rec ords of the Chicago roada were broken this year. The business was from two to three times larger than that or last year. Tne in crease was due to a large degree to the three holidays and the general suspension of busi ness in the city. In addition to the holiday business was the large traffic due to the meet-lnsr of the National educational asaocia tion, which, is now In session In Minneapolis. Cotton Road Men to Meet Here. The representatives of the cotton carrying roads of the south will meet at the Chicago Beach hotel today to consider the question of rates and methods of handlmgr that com modity during the coming season. The con ference will continue throughout the week. Experiments with Locomotives. The Alton road has been experimenting with locomotives of various patterns for several weeks with a view of placing a large order for new equipment. The experience of the transportation department of the road has been varied. Some of the types have proved a success on some parts- of the line and have failed on other parts. It is the confirmed opinion among- many engineers that an engine has to be broken into a par ticular run on some part of the road before getting the best results out of it. Oil on Dust a Success. 1 The experiment of sprinkling the roadbed of the Santa Fe line with oil to keep dowa the dust and preserve the ties has been pro nounced a distinct success. The test was made over a distance of 360 miles between Seligman and Hesperia. The use of the oil Is expected to overcome the objections of passengers to the line as a summer route to -California and the southwest. The oil will be sprinkled over the lines every six or seven weeks. Low Rates to the West. The Union Pacific railroad has discontinued Its low rates to harvest hands bound for Kansas. The low rates to Nebraska will continue in force until July 15.
