Chulal »ngkorn I. of win come to Boston next Wednesday, leaving New Y-erk about noon and arriving In this city about 5^10 o’clock In ‘he afternoon. With the prince Is his brother. Prince Chakrabon.gse who resembles much his elder; Colonel Rnjarallobh, first aide-decamp to the crown prince; Major Sara- sidlhi, second aide-de-camp; Front Anuvatra, private secretary; Luang Surayudh. aide-de-camp of his Royal Highness Prince Chakrabongse; the Siamese minister, Mr. E. H. [joftus; secretary of the Siamese legation. Professor J. H. Gore; Mr. Herbert H. D. Peirce, third as.siatant .secretary of state, repre- renting the President;' Mr. David B. Blcklea, and Mr. Edwin Morgan, secretary to the President’.s representative. The crown prince’s visit Is In the hands of Mr. Pierce, who attends to all such matters, mapping out the and the stops on the tour of all vlsltln,g royalties. He travels w'Hh the distinguished visitors, and In order that there shall be no faux p.ns, however trifling, prepares a little I hart on or circular on the punctilious e tiquette to be observed. Thus when Governor Crane dines the hoy prince at the Hotel Somerset on the evening of his arrival In Boston, ho will have his guest on his right hand and the younger of the royal princes on his left. -Next to the crown prince, two seats to the right of the Governor, will be Assistant Secretary Peirce, as tlie representative of the head of the nation, with Ihe Siamese minister in a corresponding po.sltion on the left of Prince Chakra-, the other invited guests being alternately American and On Thursday the crown prince will pay an \is1t to the State House, wdiere he will be received l>y the Governor, the !Mayor of Bo.ston and other State and city I officials. ! After the ofllcial visit to the State House the crown prince with the third assistant secretary of .state and undoubtedly some reriresentatives of the Gornmonwealth will visit St. Mark’s School at Soutliboro on Oct. 30. and that evening he will visit some theatre. On Friday. Oct. 31. at 10 a. m.. a special train will take tlie crown prince and the other officials to the American Watch t’ompany’s work.s at Waltham, wliere the officials of that corporrnion will entertain them with a luncheon. The vi.sitors will return to Boston at 2 o’clock and visit some of the shoe factories at Lynn until D D. m. On Saturday, Nov. 1, the crown prince and party will be the guests of fiarvard young scion of the house of Slam has chiefly attained notoriety through his refusal to be cajoled into going behind the scenes at one of the New York theatres. Perhaps he feared to lose his Illusion; at ai; events, his action was in refreshing contrast t’o the curiosity In such matters of the rollicking Duke Boris, who has so lately departed, fresh fields to conquer. Not tut what the prince likes a good time. None who studies the bright, almost laughing face can doubt that, but young l*hough he Is, he has dignity beyond his years, and as for women, HO step-mothers would Indicate a surfeit of femininity, from which he is no doubt enjoying a pleasing change. The young prince, however, If rumor bo true, likes woman in the singular, not in the plural. His father adds to his collection as a woman to her bundle of letters, but when he 1s king he will have but one queen, and she will be queen of his heart and kingdom. In other words, he is not a believer in polygamy, family Instinct and hereditary Influence to the contrary. The poet prince he might be called, for, besides his predilection for ping-pong and high balls, he has a fondness for verse, of which he has written some fine samples, and to his credit Is a well-w'rltten book on the Polish wars, called "The Polish Succession,” which is considered remarkable for so young an aufhor. It will be Interesting to read what ho thinks of his American tour, as he Is an observing little chap, well rend, well bred, ■with money to burn, who Is having the time of his life before he returns to the elephants end the castles of his native Siam.

After visiting the various departments of the university In the morning they will be entertained at luncheon by President Eliot at the Harvard Union, and in the afternoon the crown prince will have an opportunity to see a great football game betw’een the Harvard eleven and the Carlisle Indians. At 8 p. m. of the same day Mr. Peirce will give a dinner in honor of the royal visitor, to which will be invited some prominent citizen.-^. The crown prince and his suite will leave Boston on Nov. 2 for a trip through the West. Since he has been in Chls country the CATCHING BOOK TITLES Most readers would be at a loss to discover the source of some hook titles and would forget if they ever knew’ that “The World Well Lost’’ is borrowed from Dryden, tliat “A Dream and a Forgetting" is Wordswortii’s and that it was Othello who loved "Not Wisely, but Too Well." We might add that in spite of the familiarity of the famous "Elegy” not one reader in ten will trace Mr. Hardy’s "Far From the Madding Crowd” to Gray, or will connect "One of Three” with t’nc mariner who held the wedding guest with his glittering eye. Mr. Hardy's titles, like Howell’s, are almost Invariably attractive. "A Pair of Blue Ivyes,” "Two on a Tower” and “The Return of the Native” stimulate curiosity. Often a proverb or any other familiar phrase is as good a.s a recognized quotation. “Put Yourself In His Place” and "It is Never too Late to Mend” were strokes of genius on the part of Charles ÚOQÚ Re&sostQ V'my You ShouSd Buy tho CeleSsratod 7—Qua.ity.

WORK OF WOMEN INVENTORS AT THE MECHANICS’ FAIR Women are constantly coming to the front In all lines as authors, composers, artists, architects, lawyers and doctors, but the latest development Is women inventors. In the women’s department at Mechanics’ fair there Is being exhibited 20 inventions of women. The Women’s Educational and Industrial Union of Boston has offered a prize of $50 for the best household labor saving device Invented by a woman. Among the plans and devices submitted are many interesting Inventions, some already patented. The most original and unique invention among them is that of a bread making machine. It is the invention of Mrs. Lydia C. Sharpless of Philadelphia. There is little doubht In the minds of any but that this invention will take the $00 prize. It is certainly a great labor saver and economizes both time and money. Alore loaves of bread can be made out of the same amount of flour by u.sing this machine than by making bread in the old-fashioned way. Mrs. Sharpless, the Inventor, Is a very intere.sting conversationalist, and In speaking of the machine said: ‘“My husband. who was a dyspeptic, wa.s not able to oat ordinary bread, which is palatable but not dige.stible, so I immediately set to work to see if I could not think out a plan to prcdtice dige.stible bread. You see, people, with all their progression, .are still satisfied with the same bread that our Grandmotiicr Sarah made for our Graiidfntlier Abraham. So I thought out rny scheme, made not only my first model, but the actual working model. I made R from pasteboard, with tin knives fitted on small wocden cylinders that I whittled out myself. It took me three years to complete It. One thing that makes me happy is the fact that a friend of mine, an energetic little woman, has paid off entirely tho mortgage on her place by A SCIENTIFIC BREAD MAC HINE3 FOR DOMESTIC USHl NEW CHAPLAIN OF PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS making and selling biscuits by the use of this machine, it makes 10 loaves of bread in three minutes. "It seems to be a wonder that peasants can live on black German sour bread .and he nourished by it. and a body of chemists at the Franklin Institute used a slice on a slide in giving stereoptlcon views, and found that it looked Just like a cross section of my bread, the starch granules having bursted and changed in baking, done by allowing the yeast ])lant to die after 24 hours’ raising. The acid generated and burst the starch granules. "In my bread the same effect Is produced without losing the sugar or sweetness, and so a bread is obtained that is both palatable and digestible.” Last week when Frederick Ives, the inventor of the binocular microscope, pre.'iented the slides for the stereoptlcon views of Mrs. Sharpless’s bread, the announcement was made at the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, that where Mrs. Sharpless had claimed to save from 12 to 25 per cent of nutrition, that she had saved nearly 50 per cent. The news reached Washington, D. C., and they Immediately telegraphed for the microscopic slides to be forwarded there. The machine coinsists of a sieve, through which the flour slft.s Into the lower part of the machine, which contains the yeast and moisture. A revolving cylinder with set knives, which produce four motions, thoroughly mixes the bread without any pressure. By this process the old way of making bread will soon be a thing of the past, as the new method Is such a radical change. Mrs. Sharpless Is making a lengthy visit In Boston. She addressed the young women of the Y. W. C. A. at Warrenton street last Tuesday evening. The “wooden hand” Is the Invention of Mrs. Ella Ricker of Grlnnell, la. It consists of a small piece of wood, shaped to lit the palm of the hand and has flve wooden fingers attached. It Is made to les.sen the iabor.s of th’e kitchen. It is a sanitary mixer and l.s used as a substitute for the hand. It is used to mix anything except' bread. The "orderly clothes press” consists of a wooden curtain pole with detachable forma on which to hang clothing. The pole i.s supported by a frame, which I.-; pl.aced parallel to the closet door and is placed a few feet from the rear of the closet. The "portable automatic dustless ash scoop and coal sifter” was Invented by Mrs. L. A. Branson of Lowell, Mass. It consists of a zinc receiver and non-com I bustible cloth bag, in the bottom of which is a cylindrical pan. By its use ashes can be taken from stove or furnace and sifted In any part of the house wdthout a particle of dust escaping. A "Jelly bag,” the Invention of Mrs. Ellen Phillips of Boston, is so con.structed that hot fruit can be immediately ; strained for Jelly instead of the old, long. ■ dripping pro'cess. Mrs. John Gant of I Nashville, Tenn., Is the originator of en ingenious device. It is a device for disposing of liquid waste from kitchen or laundry. large scoop fastened to the kitchen wall connects with a pipe that empties on the outside of the house. This device .saves steps and time. In winter it saves the housekeeper from exposure to the cold. The tip-top picture hanger Is a device for hanging and removing picture.« readily and instantly. It is attached to a pole and is an improvement on the .stepladder method by which many a good man has lost his temper. Among the number of plans on exhibit are several schedules for division of income. When a woman succeeds in inventing an automatic machine for putting up and taking down stoves, to save the tired husband’.s time, then, and only then will the woman inventor have reached the zenith of her ambition. METROPOLITAN PARK COMMISSION TO SUPPLY WOOD TO POOR OF 12 TOWNS AND CITIES The Rev. Patrick J. O’Connell. 9. J.. has been appolnred to succeed Father Brennan as ehaplaln at the public institutions at Deer, Rainsfurd and Long Island.«,. Fatlier Brennan, who has had direction of the religious work at the Islands for .«Ix years past ha.- been transferred to the St. Thomas Church, In Charles county, Maryland, a comprising about KiOO members. Father Brennaji’s address at the new parish will be Cux station, Charles county, Md. The Rev. I'atlier O’Connell, who has already undertaken the direction of the religious work at the Lslands, Is particularly adapted to have charge of such work, not only on account of his previous experience, but also because of the heartfelt interest and .«ympathy w’hlch is ever evident in his work among the criminals and poor at tho islands. Father O’Connell occupied the position of assistant at the Bt. Aloysiiis Ch irch, Washington. D. C.. for many years previous to his transfer to the St. Mary’s parish on Endtcott street at the North End. Here, for ever a year he has had charge of the large parochial school at the corner of Stillman and North .Margin ■jfrcetfi and tlie .'^iinda' Mchnol w" >rk of the chureh. F.afher O’Connell was chaplain at the Island.s 12 years ago, under ('oii'mi-.-i.ii t r I'nks In the nr'^'-enf work he will be as.sLsted by Father Gorman and Something N ewi Father Wallace. Three masses are said each Sunday—one at each of the islands. Father O’Connell conducts Sunday mass at Deer Island, while his assistant alternately conducts the remaining two ser-. vices at Rafnsford and Long Islands. Father O’Connell vi.slts the Islands dally and during seven nights of each month he is compelled to remain over all night. His duties include Sunday mass, hearing confessions, preparing those who are dying. and administering communion. L.ast year, during the time of the prevalence of smallpox. Father O’Connell generously offered his services at Gallup's Island, where he attended all the contagious cases. There are about 1600 men. women and boys at the different Islands, the direction of whose spiritual welfare Fatlier O'Connell has In charge and at heart. This number Includes the 170 boys at Rainsford and the 600 in the home for aged and the hospital at T/ong Island. The chaplain takes the mo?t sincere Interest In the lives of the prisoners. “My work keeps me very busy." said ha to a Post reporter, "and being placed, aa I am. in such close proximity to criminal life, .seeing the prisoners dally, it affords me added ■np'porfunities for studyire the eltects of imprisonment upon criminals. "'rhere are those who leax-e th ¡s md never to return, but many of the poor fellows come back again and again. In some cases the penal liustltutlons are actually a hle.sslng for i do n-q know where many of the men would go if they were not sent to the Island. Again there are other cases where I h.ave long held the opinion that a second or even a third chance should have been given.” Father O’Connell did a grca* deal of work among tho prisoners prevlou.s to his appointment and ills labors among them have won for him the con- I fUlonce of all those among whom lie Is to direct religious work.

In eonsequenc« of the threatened lack i of fp<d this winter, the mernt ers of the Metropolitan Park Commission announced some time ago that the poor wete at I liberty to collect the dead wood in tlie Middlesex F'ells and that scattered over the blue Hill reservation. The comml-s.sioners hav.^ gone 1 step further in their purpose to aid any dls- tr*ss that may occur from dellciency or high prices of fuel, atid hundreds of cords of oak and b rcli now being cut In the reservalione will be supplied the people about the parks at cost price. ' Three weeks ago aa many men as could be spared were sent into tlie reservations to fell and cut up all the useless trees I growing the parks. Between 15 and 2u men have been at work since then in each reservation building up pile after pile of oak and birch ready to he supplied to the people of the cltle.s and towns adjoining the respective reservations. Lying about the Middlesex Fells are the towns of Medford, Malden, Melrose, Stoneham and Winchester. Adjoining the Blue Hill reservation lie Randolph. Br.iintree, Quincy, Mattapan, Milton and Clinton It Is the Intention of tlie cominlssltmeij to arrange with the public boards of these places to furnish the wood now bring cut in the two parks at cost price, Thu Blue Hill reservation comuri»es 49119 acres, mostly of w’ooded land. At the Middlesex Fells th* re are 3 Oi acres more In both parks is an unlimited supply of w’ood which can be cut and prepared for delivery Many more cords of dea<l wood in the shape of fallen trees and branches which are Immediately available for use He aca'tered over the reservations. Along the drives leading through the ! woods may be seen hero and there ; heaps of dead wood which hav'> been ! trimmed out and piled close to the road. The.-ie piles art free to whoever cliooses to take them away. It Is stated that as yet few have appeared to secure thl.s fuel. People about the reservations are either too busy’ or too well supplied to enter the parks for free fuel, while fur the more needy living farther away In ih<» cities and outlying town.s arrangements have not been completed for furnishing wood now oelng cut. This fuel is little Inferior to that sold by dealers, and Its delivery among the thousands of poor about the reservations will go far toward alleviating any distress during the coming winter. It is stated that the cost of cutting is about $2.00 per cord owdng to the size of the trees and the large area which must be covered in cutting them out. All the clearing is done under the .supervision of the landscape artist Olmstead. Added to the cost of cutting will he the expense of delivery. Dl-scrimlna- tlons will be made in delivery by the boards of the different tow'ns. who are most needy will he allow'ed preference. At the Middlesex Fells ■woodmen are now trimming out the tree.s a-id piling the wood In the pirk about .Spot Pond Along the road leading past the pumping station lie pHe.s of dead limbs and trees cut up and ready to he taken aw.ny. The cord {»ile.s of green c.ak Increasing each day which ilc scattered through the woods wl'l be dry enough for f',;el in another month. Forty cords of this wood are u.sed on the reservation AH the rest Is f >r delivery among the poor.
