The paper was a history of the kiss traced it from its birth and proved that the- earliest peoples and earliest times knew it not. That there- might be no mistake he labelled the kiss of today "the genuine kiss" and "the perfect kiss." - Oddly enough, he finds that the genuine kins "was invented by a woman. The description Is given in the epic-of aadnt I India which treats of the science or love, i- "She laid her mouth to my mouth," recites 'the poet, "and made a noise which ' gave mo pleasure." i With that discovery, said Professor 1 Hopkins, grew the fashion which has Jlnce known no abatement. "The early -peoples," : he continued ' "knew nothing of the kiss fn any form? Had they known or It they would nave told something of It in the mass of records that has come down to us. for surely an act which conveys such pleasure could not have been forgotten. "With the development of the genuine kiss, the sniff kiss disappeared, never to reappear. It had. served its purpose nd soon was forgotten." ' , , THIEVES STEAL WINE; GUESTS ARE VERY DRY NEW YORK, April 13. A melodramatic story of how Millionaire Steers Lake failed to entertain his gliests with rich and rare old whitt; wine the other night when they gathered at his home, 71 Central Park West, was unfolded by the police. They arrested Jacob Horn of 123 West Ninetieth street, engineer of th. building In which Lake lives, and John Davison, of 160 West Fortieth street. At Horn's the police found-six bottles of ithe missing wine, and also six empty bottles. When Lake's friends assembled Wednesday night for the dinner, the host expatiated eloquently on his white wine, of which he said he had ten case in the cellar. When the servant came back and ' reported every bottle had vanished, there was a loud outcry. LONDON, April 13. The disagreement in ths Thaw trial waa a general topic of conversation today, while ail of the papers coramented.on it. TheT general tendency was to sneer at the American system of conducting criminal cases and to praise the manner cf conducting similar trials in England. The Star says. "The jury, after being saturated for nearly two months with every form of mendacious hysteria, naturally was In such a -state cf mental chaos that It could not agree either to convict or to acquit. - "YELLOW MANGE." "The yellow mange, which is creeping over the press of both America and Kngland, is a loalhesome disease. It 13 absolutely without conscience and without morals. It has no standard or decency or dignity; no sense of reticence and is quite as ready to beslobber the notorious harlot as to boom the predatory millionaire. It has no interest in truth, except as an obstacle to overcome, in pursuit of a sensation. It prefers a lie which maltes a good story to verify which makes-" a bad one." .."-' OPINION OF GLOBE. The Globe says: "The crime' was merely a common -variant of the eternal problem, two men and one woman, has bew overlnM with leyal embroidery and forensic eloquence to an extent utterly disproportionate to real complexity. It is not too much to say that If the chief personages had been two Bowery toughs -and a street girl. Instead of two millionaire and an actress, the Ual wodld hardly have lasted as many hours as the actual In vestigation did weeks. Whatever the outcome for Thaw may be, the affair can hardly help having deplorable effects upon public opinion In the United S totes. Nothing Is more calculated to destroy respect for property- than the spectacle cf wealth without -responsibility, leisure without' wisdom and luxury without refinement." , - STAGES REVIEWED. Othor papers' review the -various stages of the 1 trial,' and declare that American prestige has suffered severely, and the case is called a" "signal proof ot the utter Inefficiency of American statesmanship to evolve a practical legal system." J ' y Another paper says: "A strong English judge would hatse made short work of the trial, reducing to a minimum its degrading sensationalism." . - Surprise is expressed .that Justice Fitzgerald did not dominate the proceedings as would an English Judge. REFERENCE TO TRfAL. " Recorder George C. Cave. M. P., In opening Guildford Quarter Sessions today, referred to the Thaw trial indirectly in charging the grand Jury. He said: - "We are apt to congratulate ourselves on comparing the English and American criminal systems. - Counsel In this country are disposed to have the time.of the court and there is tradition of prosecuting counsel should not struggle to obtain a conviction. We trust our juries more than do the Americans. ' "I hope that the proposed criminal appeal court will not give the. rich an advantage oyer the poor."

CHICAGO, April 13. Judge Mi-Kerzie Cicland thinks he has discovered a remedy for bad husljands. He has been experimenting for several weeks and has rounded up llfty couplps to see if the wives had, any complaint to make. Not one was hrard. The Judjre made up his mind that bad food made had husbands. Instead of sentencing (he briitiil or drunken husband to the city pen he has varied the sentences. "Two weeks cn ham and eggs, with hot hisicuits, viricd with steak and sweet potatoes," or "one week on ro.ist lamb, one week on roast chicken, varie-1 with corned beef and cabbajre. and roast beef." The Judge says where the wives knew how to -cook the new sentences have worked like a charm; where they didn't more trouble ensued."
