I TIIE AUSTIN STATESMAN", FRIDAY, KOVEMBEK, 3, 1003 V i So cia I Mention The i Bidder School Mothers' club will meet at the school next Tuesday for the regular meeting. Considerable business is to come up for settlement. Mrs. Fred Hoopes and daughter, Miss Elizabeth Lee, of Manor, are the guests of Mrs. G. W. Fulton and family at 1907 Wichita street. They will very likely remain in the city during the remainder of this week. Several parties occupied boxes at the LouJs James performance last nisrht. Both Mr. James and Mr. Hack-ctt are favorites in this city, having delighted Austin audiences with a treat every season for many years. A very pleasing affair was the reception tendered Mr. Hackett by Henry Wilkinson of this city, who was a classmate with the actor at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbnr in 'S8. ' Congressman Albert Burleson of this ' city and district has presented through his sister, Mrs. Lillie MacDonnell, to every school in the city through the different mothers' clubs a large and handsome map of the United States. These maps have already been received In the city and have been placed In the different school buildings. The mother' clubs are simply delighted with the g'ft. and very much appreciate the thnughtfulness of the congressman, who has always shown a decided interest in the schools of Austin. The different olubs will acknowledge the gift with a vote of thfmks. Knight of Columbus of the Capital City Council No. 1017 had a social gaUiering for its members at the hall, corner of Seventh street and Congress avenue, last night. Good music, refreshments and last but not least, cigars were served. Speeches were made by Rev. John T. Boland, president of St. Edward's College; Mr. O'Reilly, Judge T. B. Tarleton and many others. The following committee had charge of the arrangements: P. N. Fahey. O. L. Heidusek, W. P. Brady, John F. Butler, Harry O. Newton, John F. Goggan and L. J. Schneider. At the residence of the ' bride's mother. Miss Margerite Criser was yesterday nifirning at 10:30 o'clock wedded to Mr. Albert Monroe- Keen of Fort Worth. The wedding was extremely quiet. The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. W. D. Thompson, pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian church of this city. After the ceremony the happy couple went direct to the Katy depot and left on the morning train for Dallas to spend a few days before settling in Fort Worth to make that city their future home. .Thus is lost to Austin one of the social leaders, whose loss will be Fort Worth's sain. They will be at home in Fort Worth at the Delaware after this week. The Helping Hand society met at the Young Men's Christian association parlors yesterday morning for the regular monthly meeting. The society found that the children's home was in very fine condition. There are in the home at present e'ghteen little orphans. The financial status of the home is all that could be expected.

The matter was discussed at the meeting yesterday morning and the movement started. At the next regular monthly meeting the matter will be taken up and possibly something definitely done. The ladies of the Parents' club are taking a decided interest in the "book tea." which is to be given at the high school building this afternoon from 3:36 to 5:30 o'clock. The club is receiving the hearty endorsement of the faculty of the h;gh school on its good work as well as from the friends and patrons of the school. The high school ha.s been sadly lacking in the need of a library for these many years and It is a source of satisfaction to many to know that a library is at last to be started. The tea this afternoon will be most interesting. A very beautiful program will be carried out to include many musical selections by the pupils of the school, recitations, dialogues. Tea and waffles will be served by the members. of the club. The much talked of musical tea by the Daughters of the American Revolution was eiven at the residence of Mrs. W. H. Bell -"esterday afternoon. All during the hours set for the tea numerous ladies and as many gentlemen of the city called. A small admission fee was asked, which was the means of raising a considerable sum for ! the continental hall, Washington, D. C. A very delightful program was carried out. Mrs. Morris Mrs. Hil- artner, Mrs. Caswell, Mrs. Collins, ! Misses Steiner. Thompson, Simkins, Kate Bickle- Connie Palm and General were among the number who sang. Mrs. Thompson delighted the audience with a piano selection. Miss Eleanor Brackenridge played very beautifu"- on the piano. Miss Alice ham, assisted bv Miss Mary Wortham, Tips played on the violin. Frank Lan-delighted the people with some very clever dialogue. The tea proved a very decided success In every particular. The Daughters of the Confederacy met for the regular monthly business meeting In the chapter room at the capitol building yesterday afternoon. The attendance at the meeting was larger than was expected, especially considering the threatening weather. P.esides the regular routine business which came up for consideration the chapter spent considerable time on the election cf delegates to the state convention, which meets at Waco the first week of next month. The following delegates were elected: Mrs. J. D. Roberdeau. president; Mrs. L. T. torey. Mrs. F. T. Morean. Mrs. Z. T. F"ulmore, Mrs. Val C. Giles, Mrs. George Massie, Misses Mary Lee Hor-ton and Mamie Wilson. The alternates who were selected were: Mrs. O. B. Colquitt, Miss Annie P. Norton, Mrs. Moore Mordock. Mrs. E. P. Smith, Mrs. John Durst, Mrs. D. H. Caswell and Misses Sterzin and Hill. Tonight at the South Austin fire hall will be given an entertainment or rather a play, entitled "The District School," by local talent, which is gotten up for the purpose of raising funds for the old ladies' home. This is only one of the many entertainments which the energetic ladies of the city are i getting up for the Altenheim. Mrs. Iglehart says that bus and hack ac. La Beuna Vista company of Fort Worth.

W ONE OFINIOM BY THE SUPREME COURT COURT DECIDED A QUESTION OF DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS IN A CASE APPEALED FORM JEFFER-SON COUNTY. The only opinion handed down yesterday by the supreme court was in the case of William A. Nichols vs. William Dixon et al. from Jefferson county, wherein the court affirmed the judgment of the lower court. The question at issue in this case was a proper distribution of certain funds in the hands of Dixon and the remainder due for the construction of a building upon the homestead of Dixon and wife.

Leather has never before attained to the Importance It now enjoys a3 a material of considerable possibilities and with a bright future In sartorial centers. The tailors attribute the extraordinary successes it will achieve this autumn to the avenue of triumph the motor car has opened up for it, though its area of utility is by no means confined nowadays to cover-Edl cloaks of hardy brown skin, visor caps to match and stout gloves and footgear. Women who make an art of dressing well will only accept fabrics that are ! useful when fashion or the skill of man has transformed them Into things of beauty as well as of practical value. So in order to raise a demand for the little leather boleros that are now being Introduced as the climax of smart -r-ss for the automobile they are built of the most supple skin dressed until It has assumed the softness of doe, bleached cream or snow white, or colored a soft rose, a delicate jade green or a becoming pearl gray. That dresses are piped and banded with leather and that leather Is employed as rivers and belts, pocket flaps and cuffs, is well known. Women who shoot or who follow the guns use leather to bind their skirts because no ether fabric will withstand the onslaughts of hard wear bo well, and those who make an appearance out of doors for lunch wear cheviots and tweeds daintily inset with suede arabesques and lozenges and finished with suede-covered buttons. But the latest developments of leather are less obvious. They appertain to the newest boots and shoes, sold to match all the smartest autumn frocks In such colors as dove, russet red gray, garnet and green. Two types of leather are used for colored footgear leather with a bright surface and suede, which has a dull, undressed one. White, gray and dove colored suede shoes are in no country more popular than in Austria, as the accompaniments of pale colored gowns to match, and the vogue for them has attracted attention In London. But for the autumn It Is a colored patent leather, and leather that Is even stouter, that is the acme of modishness, allied to cloth that has been cut from the length of which the toilette is composed. of Dixon, subject to the claim of the Texas Builders' Suly company, the sum of $513.90.

These bonds bear 6 per cent interest and mature iu ten years. They will be registered in the comptroller's, department. BELOW DECKS ON A LINER. Why the Chief Engineer, Though Little Heard of, Has Responsibilities, One of the monthly magazines printed a fiction story not long ago whose purpose was to show that when a great Atlantic liner makes an unusually tine record the captain gets the credit, while the chief engineer is overlooked entirely. Praise of the officials of the line, it was contended, invariably goes to the men on the bridge instead of to the men below the decks, to whom it belongs rightly, and further on the point was made that the public knows only the captains of the ships, while the chief engineers, really of equal or of more importance, are lost in anonymity. It Is a fact that the average oceangoing traveler knows practically nothing of what is going on below the decks. He sees his fellow passengers on the decks, now and then has a word with the captain or the first officer, goes to his meals and to his stateroom, and understands thoroughly that he is on a floating hotel. The task of navigating this hotel is the one that i3 constantly uppermost in his mind; the task of propelling it is something to which he gives little heed. He knows he is on a craft moved through the water by steam and that! down In the hold there are a large lumber of men producing that steam "rom coal and making things go round, out of the extent of the work done down there and of the multiplicity of mechanisms involved, he is entirely ignorant, as a rule. Take one of the large liners, not a Treyhound, and see what is going on i the hold during her run across the t'iant!c. 12efore the ship sails about 3000 tons 'it coal has been dumped into the bunk-o: through chutes, and nearly as rrtany tons of fresh water for use in lomestic purposes and also for making steam. Before the voyage begins 'he men who are to care for the machinery and those who handle about 730 tons of coal a day report. This ship has about 10,000 horsepower capacity and is a seven-day 'joat. There are employed in the pro-wiling department about this force: Twenty engineers, three electricians, two refrigerating engineers, one deck "nginl'er, eighteen oilers, six water lenders, sixty-four firemen and thiity-two coal passers, a total force of 146 nen. This shio has eight douhle-e.nded inilers, each with eight furnaces, and n least two single-ended boilers, emVi vith four furnaces, making altogether vventy-two. furnaces. These furnaces -at up the 330 tons of coal a day. The coal passers take it from the Minkers. which extend alongside t- ship and wheel It in harrows, depositor It in front of the hoikr. The firemen feed it to the furnaces, their skill consisting in so spreading it on ho fires that the greatest number of heat mils will result in making ti steam. The engineers and oilers and water enders all have thel appropriate work to do, and they work in shifts ot four hours each. Steam is necessary for many more hings than running the me in engine Tn the first place an arific;a' rmit be kept up In the boiler rooms so rt to make fhe fires burn faster a .v, toilers up to the!r greatest "anaclty. ' Then steam must be supplied to th sUeiing etisuit. 'i'ntu utie Is what I known as the turning engine. It is a complete stationary engine and its use is to 'turn the mam engines over'' when making repairs or when it is necessary to move them slightly. Then there is the complicated system of pumps, all of which require steam to operate them. The donkey engine has to have it supply of steam. This engine operates the windlasses for heaving anchor and loading and unloading freight. It does the chores. The ash ejectors are contrivances for throwing the ashes overboard, and these, too, must have steam. When cold water from the storage tanks is necessary for use in the boilers it must be heated first, to save time, in a feed water heater. This requires steam. The cooks in the galley must have hot water, and this means more pumps and more steam. There must be a carefully arranged sanitary system in operation; and this requires more pumps furnishing and controlling an abundant supply of water. There must be steam heat, and this makes another demand upon the steam in the main boilers. Fire pumps, ca pable of throwing large streams or water, are distributed about the ship, and of course there must be steam at hand to run them in an emergency. Then there are the dynamos to be run all the time. Electricity is used almost entirely for lighting and signaling purposes on all th liners. The refrigerating room machinery must also be kept going. The one demand on a liner, constant and unceasing, is for steam. It is to make that product that fully 1P men are kept employed where the passengers never see them. The responsibility for running all the complicated mechanical equipment rests with one man, the chief engineer. To be ready for emergencies, to watch every part, piston, valve, shafts and what not. and to keep all the parts at tUi'ir highest efficiency, is far more complicated a job than merely navigating a vessel. It requires as much nerve and memai ranupt m -v tain'- taalr nnd vet the world almost never hears the name of the eniei eu gineerot any uner, -New York Sun. SOCIETY'S ADIEU TO CONSUELO. A Large Party of Smart Folks Crowded Pier to Say Goodby to Duchess. Delighted with her newest knowledge of the land of her birth to such an ex-font that she hist hated to leave it, the n'nrhsa Af Marlborough tore herself away from a large party of friends in Hoboken Tuesday and sailed for the pnnntrw nt her adoction on the Kron- prinz Wilhelm. Everybody on the pier and in the steamship must have known the duchess was there, for she was advertised by her loving friends, whose lavish offerings of flowers, bonbons, light reading matter and kindred trifies filled two staterooms and made several etewards work overtime. Duchess Con-suelo was more bewitching than ever In a blue costume as she leaned over fh roil nnd waved farewell to the highly representative part of society I gathered to wish her a goou voyage. Hat, coat and frock were of the one hue. The headgear had two blue feathers and a blue ribbon. Her coat reached to within a few inches of the edge of her skirt and fitted so tightly that her figure seemed poured into it. Mrs. Oliver H. P. Belmont, the duchess's mama, and her husband were 'n the group that escorted her to the vessel. A large party was waiting for the former Miss Vanderbilt on the pier, and the clamor of friends who pressed forward to greet her caused even the passing porters to pause and star?. Duchess Consuelo accepted the attention as a ducal prerogative. Had her family sprouted strawberry leaves from the days of the Conqueror she could not have borne her blushing honors more eracefully. "O, dear, yes, I've enjoyed myself hugely!" she said in answer to a ques tion. "Yes, I'm glad to go back of course." she added naively. "A de lightful experience, which I shall never forget, was my view of the Vanderbilt cup race. It was the most thrilling and exciting race scene I ever have witnessed. I think those racing chaf-fuers must be the bravest men in the world." Fellow passengers with the duchesg were Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Ghdden, who covered themselves with glory in the eyes of automobilists and globe trotters alike by touring the world in an English car. Tuesday was the be ginning of another globe-girdling trip for them. Itefore it is over they will have traveled 8000 miles more in their sjtomobile. They are intrepid explor ers and do not hesitate to probe the wildest lands. Included in their itenerary are Afghanistan, India, Burmah, Ceylon, Siam, Cochin China, Korea and Japan. "Yes, we may meet hostile tribes said Mr. Glidden, "but we are prepared for them. We have a little arsenal in our car. Mrs. Glidden is a crack pistol shot. We are not afraid, but as a precaution we may ask for an armed escort when we pass through certain sections. ' The Gliddens expect to be back In time for the Glidden cup tour next year, so they have planned to maintain meir roreign average ot ISO miles a day. Mr. Glidden has in his kit four extra wheels, grooved for travel on railroad tracks. New York Press. Waved It Aside. Some of Senator Dotsmun's friends were trying to persuade him to become a candidate for the presidency. "Gentlemen," said the senator, "the idea is absurd, for two reasons. The first is that I couldn't possibly . be elected. The second, which is far more important. Is that I am not engaged i any business or profession in which the advertising would be of the slight est use to me." Chicago Tribune. Discounting It, Sarah Brum Yes, it's a beautiful solitaire and must have cost George a small fortune, I wish you Joy, with all my heart. ' Sarah liellum Thank you, dear. You're talking that way because you knew I expected you to make some sniteful remark about it. Chicago Tr.bune. Finding Joy in Failure. To be able to extract the tlower of happiness from the weed of failure which grows in the garden of every heart is most desirable. For happiness is the chief end of human life no pleasure, but happinnBs. And If The millions of the world were shut out of any hope of happiness, any Jot of jo, this globe would be shadowed In Egyjtian durkness rather than be full of sunshine. But they ore not so shut out. No life is so full of failure that it may not be a Joyful one. This is not a mere preachment; this is a fact demonstrable, an experience attainable. If failure Is a common lot. humanity need not associate failure rth misery. If success Is to the averag. snn beyond his reach he need not !; rd suc cess and happiness as synonymous. Neither statement is true, however much the clamor of the self seeking world may preach it. There was an ancient prophet .who cried, borne from a battle sorely wounded. "It 'Jolce! again I say, Rejoice:" Thus may thf failures of life, at wound', resulting from struggle for humanity's uplift-ment. bwomft successes.
