Our Pres. Duke is buying cigarette factories in Germany and Russia – the mores the pity. The coronation of Edward the seventh has been fixed for the twenty sixth of June. The Siberian R.R. just completed was first proposed ten years ago. It has thirty-nine miles of bridges and is a stride in the march of civilization for Russia. A couple of weeks from St. Petersburg will land The Czar on the utmost bonds of his dominion. This clinches the Russian grip on Manchuria. Emigration from Russia to Siberia is large and steady. The book for the evening was “ Some Women I Have Known” by Maartin Maastens-a Dutch author educated in Switzerland & Germany, so proficient in English that he writes it as fluently as his mother tongue. He is a strong satyrist of human weakness, sometimes cynical, and his characters are finely drawn with a few strokes showing a master hand. Miss Withers read flattering notices from a number of American Papers. His books are popular.
