COUNT TAGUAFERRO OF HIGHLAND PARK We Have a Real Count Who Is Of Some Account Highland Hark has been entertaining an—a count unawares. We all knew he was a prince—of good fellows, but now we find that he is a real count, and what is better, he would rather lie a good American citizen than a count. V. E. Tagliaferro, of 346 West Avenue 57. is superintendent of the city street sprinkling department, but not because he needs the job. His parents went to the island of Malta as Huguenot refugees and made .such a hit that they were initiated into the nobility. When he was 13' he was sent to England to be educated. There he acquired his faultless British voice. When he had grown up he was sent to Egypt as Arabic interpreter for the army of Lord Wolseley. His duty there Was •to have friendly doings with the Arab sheiks. Count Tagliaferro's status as a member of-the nobility was discovered upon receipt by the Herald a few days ago of an account of the royal wedding of his Sister at her home ...

'.U' . . ■ two or three times the present population of the United Staten. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 14 April 1906
'.U' . . ■ two or three times the present population of the United Staten. The tact that 0,98? suicides were reported In the United States last rear, a figure surpassing the total of any previous 'twelvemonth. Is a dark picture, but there’s a mildly bright side to It An expanding suicide rate is a part of the price paid for on advancing civilization. Suicide follows civilization as regularly as trade follows the flag. And the reason is plain enough. The more highly organized the social order becomes the greater is the number of man’s wants and desires and-the greater grows the likelihood that if they are unsatisfied he will prefer death to sontinned life. Moreover, as civilization moves forward the sense of dishonor, of remorse and of disappointment becomes keener —and these emotions frequently incite self-destruction. Still further, high civilization promotes delicacy of nervous organization and consequently exposes the Individual to mental disorder. ■ 1 Did you ever try to realize...
Ocnerou Margin. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 14 April 1906
Ocnerou Margin. The man who likes to look in shopwindows stopped at the sight of a large pitcher in the center of a collection of andirons, pewter porringers, brass candlesticks and iron skillets. The pitcher was adorned with a head of George Washington, decidedly askew and none too clear. At the side of this treasure stood a placard bearing these words: "One of the One genuine Qeorge Washington pitchers, known to be 140 years old.” Preparing for one of his frequent pleasures, the gentleman stepped into the antique shop and accosted the dealer. * “Now see here,” he said, agreeably, "that George Washington pitcher is dated too far back. A hundred and forty -years ago people weren't making Goerge Washington pitchers. They didn’t even know then that he was going to be the Father of his Country. You must be more careful.” “1 am the most partic’lar man in this business,” said the old dealer, with dig-, nlty. “The man that I bought that fUjCher from told me it bad been In is family since ...

DEVELOPMENT OF CURA. Mud la Rafldlr Rwmhlm tram Mn(i at War. -— 1 From an Industrial standpoint the Wand of Cuba Is of much more Importance to-day than It was In the heyday of the Spanish regime. It Is true that the two great Industries' of the ’aland, sugar and tobacco growing, have not yet recovered from the devastation wrought during the long years of the rtruggic for Independence, when every :nlll. and practically every plantation and railroad, was destroyed, but the Impetus which the American occupa- tton c.ive to the recultivation of the lendim: staples has already had marked effects, and then ' sugar and tobacco plantations seem more like their old selves than at any time since the close 3t the war. It Is stated, for example, that 80,000 people find employment In the tobacco fields. But from an economic standpoint this does not mean so much as does the fact that an Intelligent effort Is being made In the direction of diversified farming, whereby the Island will not be so depe...
ANCIENT WATER VILLAGES. Itnuffe Rello of Old Cnatomi Prevails la German Perea*. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 14 April 1906
ANCIENT WATER VILLAGES. Itnuffe Rello of Old Cnatomi Prevails la German Perea*. “One at the most interesting regions In the “Old Fatherland” is the socalled "Spreewald,” the forest of the Spree, situated not far from the German capital, In the province of Brandenburg,” says Fritz Morris in Technical World Magazine. “Bach village Is ‘a little Venice, every bouse a little island; and these islets are connected by bridges sufficiently raised to allow boats to pass under them. Most of the houses, with their barns and stables, rest on piles; and there is generally a strip of artificial terra firms, either In front or at the rear of every building. By means of these land strips end of the bridges, the slender land communication is kept throughout the district; but most of the business and amusement Is carried on through the canals, which not only form the main highways but penetrate nhd cross and recross the whole region. It is on these lagoons that all traffic is conducted in boats, duri...

Editorials Opinions of Great Papers on Important Subjects. ’ INCOMPETENCE IN THE NAVY. colliding and grounding In New York T harbor of three of Uncle Sam's biggest fighting machines show our navy is not i, properly officered. From $3,000,000 to $10,000,000 of the people’s money Is InHGntiß vested In each of these boats. " Extreme care should be exercised In their handling so that the period of usefulness be made the greatest, possible. Yet In our own waters, beneath a fair sky and, with a high tide running, these warships had to be grounded to avoid sending one or more to the bottom and, while In this fix, another was rammed. • A sufficient excuse for this inefficiency .will be hard to find. Our warships are neither pressed for time nor tide; they can stay at anchorage until fogs and tempestuous seas disappear and until there Is water enough In shallow places to-get out safely into the offing. Such flimsy pretext as not haying a pilot on each vessel or that the water In the channel ...

What is the cause of all this barking?” exclaimed Pa Jones, is he Impetuously rushed in to thehappy home and threw his hat and coat on the hall rack instead of the usual spot on the west end of the piano. “One might think that this bouse was a kloodle pound! One might think that yon were giving an imitation of a canine chorus in the good old dag days! Have you all taken cold at the same time? Did you find a job lot of Influenza on a bargain counter, and buy the whole business? I beard you whooping it up a mile down the street! I beard you above the din of the trolleys!
