of an Emin ently Seasonable Theory London The future work of medi cine said Dr Henry Maudsley at the British Medical association congress at Leicester recently will be mainly to prevent and stop the beginnings of disease in fact to teach the body to die at last of old age as every doctor ought theoretically himself to die Might not some good come he asked from systematic inquiries into the pro duction and elimination of constitu tional disease tendencies and disease immunities by the marriage unions of different tendencies and immunities When a person had a disease unlike that which either parent had he might still owe it to those variations occur ring in morbid heredity just as they do physiologically What was the constitutional disposi- tionr if any most likely to cause a ten dency to cancer Having regard to the local invasion and distribution of cancer its provocation by local irrita tion its more than accidental heredity and its quiet settlement in the system it seemed probable that its unruly proliferation of cells however provoked betrayed the awakening to ac tivity of the silent memories of an cestral germinal growth Another point worthy of investiga tion was how best to mate the person having a native tendency to insanity so as to cancel it in the progeny or better still convert it into a good evolution variation for that was what sometimes happened one child of a neuropathic family dying in a lunatic asylum while another rose to emi nence as poet painter or orator Why and under what conditions was the epilepsy of one generation- transformed into the insanity of the next generation How was it that diabetes and insanity go together i some families or alternate in i through generations When medical science could answer thestPand like questions it might then dictate some wise eugenic rules iInconcluding an address which was disttinguished audience Dr Maudsley said it was certain that there were laws of mental breeding yet to be dis covered and it was no more unlawful to inquire scientifically into the nature of vice and sin than into the nature and actions of poisons Hatred was as natural as hunger and stood in no less need of scientific explanation That moral qualities were not de pendent upon physical constitution and have no physical connection what ever was an opinion which although fostered in the supposed interests of morality was really a hindrance to the growth of practical morality THIS ONE TAKES THE BELT Ship Captain Reports Whale Adven ture Which Makes Him Champion New York Capt von Leitner of the steamer Graecia writes to a friend here from the West Indies that when his ship was out two days from thi port which she left July 2G and steaming south the lookout gave the nnusual cry- Whale ahoy Capt von Leitner from the bridge needed no help from his binocular to verify the lookouts statement Dirt ctly in the path of the steamship a monster whale was rolling and spout ing Sixty feet long is the most con servative estimate of its length shoutIec1The command came too late With a crash that made the steamship shiver from stem to stern the vessels sharp bow struck the monster cutting it squarely in two The crew ran aft on each side of the ship watching tIle tyro halves of the monster as theyI floated by The sea was with its life fluid The vessel was stopped for the pur t pose of finding out whether the hull or machinery was damaged by the collision All was found well and the ship proceeded on her waytSPAIN TIRING OF ALFONSO He Is a GoodHearted Lad But ofa Little Use to the Needy Nation Madrid The Spaniards are busy just now trying to make out whether they really have a good king or simply a goodhearted king There is no doubt that young Alfonsos love for Spain and the Spaniards is sincere but so far he has not been capable of doing anything practical for his peopleAs matter of fact the condition of the poorer classes is more pitiable than ever and in some regions especially in Andalusia the belief rapidly is gaining ground that the son of Alfonso XII and Maria Christina of Austria is not the right man in t right place We are getting tired said a Barcelona paper a few days agouof the platonic

accom greatImoney the wife of a welltodo bargeman in the north of France Long before the hour arrived for the men to meet their fate a howling mob held possession of the precincts where the prison is situated The soldiery and police were unable to control them The complete demoralization of even the officials was shown by the fact that they came near granting a petition by the husband of the murdered woman that he be allowed on payment of 2000mto let the knife drop on the necks of the doomed men They promised him instead a place in specItators so that his wifes assassins must be sure to see him as soon as they were brought near to the guillotine This promise was kept the old bargeman wearing a horrible grin of pleasure as the prisoners met him face to face on the way to their death The first man met his fate bravely As soon as his head dropped in the basket a yell of savage bloodthirstiness went up from the crowd There were cries of Death death torture him as the second culprit was placed beneath the knife Unfortunately Deibler grew nervous and dropped the blade unskillfully crushing the vie trios head instead of cutting it off Then the crowd burst through lines of soldiers and tried to seize the two headless bodies and carry them in tri final1ywereI somethingliJeThe last outrageous detail of the occcasion happened when the Paris reporters demanded that the heads be

chamber of deputies reassembles CURIOUS LEGAL POINT TShall Cremated Corpse Pay Sam Rate for Carriage as Body in Coffin P ParisA curious case now before- s French tribunal invokes a porn- which has not yet come up for legal settlement A certain New York doctor whose name thus far is withheld recently accompanied a wealthy west ern American to Italy where his patient after a lingering illness died andIe United States in a coffin the doctor on his own authority had the corpse cremated The ashes were placed in a small urn which was then pacl carefully and shipped as ordinar freight on which he paid the usual tar iff according to weight The doctor landed on the American side all right but the steamship com pany discovered his secret and de manded the price of carrying a body in a coffin which amounts t nearly 150 more than the doctor par for the urns transportation This h refused and the case must be decided at Paris since it was at a French t that the writ was shipped The impre- sion here is that the company will ios the case GUSIPrecaution That Is Deemed Necessary by the laval General Board Washington Every gun in the navy will have its duplicate to guard againsti any emergency anu accident if the recommendation of the naval chief of ordnance is carried out The naval general board it is be lieved thoroughly approves of it and consequently the naval estimates to go before the next congress may contain a formidable item to cover the cost of producing the new guns Such accidents as have happened in recent years particularly to the big tur ret guns of the battleships would com pel the ship to go into action in disabled condition or be laid up for months in navy yard The idea is to beep spare guns in stock at convenient points to immediately replace the damaged ones Old Horse at Funeral Shortly before his death lately Isaac W Buck one of the most prominent business man oN3unngton la made the request that his old black parse which is 20 years of age and which has served him faithfully nearly all that time accompany his body to the grave This request was complied with at the funeral when the old horse drew a carriage filled with floral emblems

df Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations Resist Interior De partmentThe Tribes Involved Vinita I TThe commercial interests in the Indian territory are preparing to take up the fight in the coming session of congress to make one state out of Indian an1 Oklahoma territories It is contended that Indian territory should be admitted as a state with Oklahoma on the same footing On March 4 1906 the tribal govern ents will go out of existence and the tribal officers will under the present law pass into history as the last officers of the five tribes It is probable that after this day not even a tribal officer will be permitted sIngleI ercise any of the prerogatives office The chief of the Cherokees has believed all the time that when he was elected in August 1903 for a term OfI four years some provision would be made for his continuance in office after the tribal governments became abolished by law but the recent rul theIcan be used to support Cherokee schools is taken to mean that none of the tribal funds can be used to pay the chiefs salary Another fact which lends credence to the belief that the governors and chiefs of the five tribes will be no longer officers after March is that the governors of the Choctaw and Chick asaw nations have been obstreperous and have been resisting the interior department in the matter of the deliv ry of deeds The monthly reports of the departments in the office of Tams BixI y commissioner to the five civilized f since he has succeeded the Dawes commission indicate that the work of allotment is progressing in aI ighly satisfactory manner The work in the Creek nation and in the Seminole country is practically completed 5and it is believed that the work in the Cherokee nation will be practically completed by the first of the year It is also believed that the Choctaw and Chickasaw land offices will soon completeIt is believed here that with th coming of statehood congress will re move the restrictions upon the aliena excepte country from a commercial point of view and clear the way for good farm ors The statements prepared by th commercial interests of the five civil taxablde DfollowsCherokees 3631231 Creeks 2560853 Choctaws and

Towns Beautiful Trees Killed It Is Thought by Leaking Gas Morristown N JBeautiful old elm trees in many streets in this city are dying The attractiveness of the town is being seriously affected thereby residents in many sections have sen leaves to foresters and government ex perts for analysis as to the probable causeIn Elm street which is one of the fashionable thoroughfares several fine trees are dead Entomologist Smith of the state agricultural station New t Brunswick says the trouble may be due to the severe winter of 1S03 and 1904 followed by the intense heat last July which has exhausted the vitality of the trees But the opinion has been advanced that a leakage in the gas mains running through the streets is responsible Several years ago a large number of elm trees on South

day A mau coming in from Portage Lake early iast spring caught a pair of young boar cubs which he sold to William L Fields who lives on the north bank of the Aroostook river about two miles above Wash burn village They soon become strongly attached to Mr FieldsjOne afternoon in June Mr Fields left home shutting the cubs in the house They became restless and the female succeeded in climbing through an open window She saw a man at work on the opposite side of the river and swam across The man saw the cub coming and caught her as she came from the water The little animal appeared so friendly that the man started to his home in Mapleton bearing the cub in his arms A week later he came to Presque Isle looking for Judge George H Smith whose reputation as a lover of UilfortunaelyIthe then tried to sell ale cub to Charles- F Daggett as an allround useful animal to protect his lawn from young DagIgettIn the meantime Mr Fields had learned of the whereabouts of his little pet As life had been made

Asylum When Escorts Got Drunk ParisThere are all the elements ot a three act farce in a true story from Cholet A certain M Legrand a mem ber of Cholets town Qouncil having become Insane was placed by the mayor in charge of two citizens who were or dered to take him to a madhouse at AnjersLegrand was not very docile and tho escort took him to a saloon and filled him with drink The result was that all three arrived at the asylum in such a state of intoxication that the director was unable to tell which was the lunatic so he telegraphed to the mayor of Cholet asking which was the crazy man The mayor replied Legrand but the grandnthe tall one The trio were then measured and the tallest who was one of the escorts was placed in a straitjacket After eight days the victims wife complained of desertion She received a Ymggonee mad and that he himself had taken him to the asylum The whole affair thus came to light But the truly farcical conclusion of the affair is that the sane mans reason was so unhinged by his confinement that he could only be provisionally released un der strict medical surveillance while the lunatic Legrand was declared no to be sufficiently insane to be placed an II asylum RAISING MONEY ORDERS f The Adroit System of Counterfeiters Working in the Atlantic Coast States WashingtonFor 18 months there has been operating mainly in th eastern and South Atlantic states gang of money order raisers who have an adroit system of changing the value ofiicfe payment operatingIspection to detect The passing of raised money orders is almost invariably done by indorsing them in partial payment gf store and throughnbanks that send in to the paying office a batch of orders The life of a money order being 12 months some time elapses before the raised order is detected That comes when the account of the paying office is balanced in the audit for the post office department in Washington For the last five years the auditors for the post office department have recommended that the life of a money order be changed from 12 months to 60 or 90 days This change it is con tended would limit the chances of the counterfeiters Old French Guards Passing A reminder of

of an attempt which Cardinal Lescot arch bishop of Bordeaux made to carryon a conversation in French with Car dinal Sarto Cardinal Sarto was unable to an swer the French archbishop as he did not know one word of French On discovering this Cardinal Lescot was horrified and although Cardinal Sar tos election was then almost certain he went the round of the other cardi nals declaring that such an election was impossible Cardinal Sarto was nevertheless elected and the other day when it was the duty of the cardinal arch bishop of Bordeaux to present him self before the pope to give an account of the affairs of his see he went to Rome with many misgivings fearing that the pope would rem3mber the in cident and receive him In anything but a ordial manner Pius X had remembered the inci dent and he had prepared his revenge on the French cardinal Cardinal Les cot was received in a manner which lacked nothing in graciousness or cor dality but the pone was unable to hide the fact from him that he did not forgo what had happened as with a meaning twinkle in his eye he addressed Cardinal Lescot in per fect French Since his election Pius X whose favorite language is the Venetian dialect has found time to fit himself for his intercourse with French speaking Catholics by learn mallYjdevote sufficient time to the study to become absolute master of the lan guageIt said that he has learned to speak French more speedily than a foreigner living outside f France has ever been known to do beforeI THE LORDS TARGET How Maine Folks Account for the Odd Name of a Tract of Land Beddington MeA 5000acre tract lying partly in Beddington and partly in Aurora has borne the name of the Lords Target for more than 104 years The term is not only applied by the residents but it appears on maps and draw ings and in deeds and highway descrip tions On Kings map of Hancock coun ty the name is changed to Gods Bullseye The local history of the name traces it back to Hate Evil Colson a soldier of the revolutionary war who settled on the Whales Back a steep watershed between Union and Princeton waters In the spring of 1798 when refugees from Ireland were flocking into eastern Maine and taking up farms Colson showed them around and helped them pick out wild lands On coming to the tract Colson saw that it was thickly strewn with stones and rocks The old soldier who had been boasting about the fertility of the Maine soil hesitated when asked if the area in sight was a sampleIt this way said Colson When the Lord created the world He had broken rocks and stones enough left over to fence the whole earth in stone walls but knowing the people would be lazy and take to bad ways if He did all the work for them He concluded to throw the rocks away So He sat up all night and threw stones at Beddington and Aurora aiming at the central point in the two towns His aim was good for nearly all the stones hit close about here They will be very handy for fencing when you have cleared up your new farms and want to have pastures to hold the cattle and sheep t RICHEST MEN ARE YANKEES Much Wealth That Has Been Piled Up in America Goes to England LondonThe richest men now resident in England are

DESTROY FOOD FISH DOGFISH DRIVING MAINE TRAWLERS OUT OF BUSINESSI Implacable Enemy of the Mackerel Cod and Other Fishes Is Grow ing Numerous on the Coast Old Orchard MeThe hotels here have been driven to the conclusion that their supply of fresh fish will have tocome from a distance this season The schooners which used to circuit about the bay do not now seek the mackerel and porgies Some visitors saw the cause of the trouble a few day ago in Casco bay They had gone out with a couple of old fishermen for a nights trawling Some new lines had been carefully set and then the buoyed half mile of line put out a day or two previously was visited Hardly however had the two men begun to pass the heavy cord with its dependent lines over the roller in the bow of the boat when one of them began to swear and wound up by saying No use I guess dogfish has spoiled the whole thing As line after line came up it was found that all the bait was gone and most of the hooks missing and many of the cords broken off short There is no chance of catching one of the thieves at such times the men explained When one of them has been hooked in such a manner that he cannot cut the line with his hundreds of wedgeshaped teeth his mates tear him to pieces When once the tough skin of the brutes is broken so that the blood comes the other dogfish will scent the carrion from an incredible distance and liurry to the feast Near Prouts Neck at the east corner of the beach the school was seen a day later from a coasting schooner They were chasing an immense drove of small mackerel young cod and porgies which were leaping out of the water in every escapeIattack The fish were headed into a little bay with rocks at each of Its points The school of dogfish were in a crescent formation completely cutting off all retreat in the shallow water The food fish quite realized their hard for tune and many tossed themselves against the rocks or on to the shore to escape the teeth of their pursuers The flashing of the gleaming bellies as the dogfish turned themselves to give play to the mouth under the piglike snout was incessant and like short sticks the back fins stood above water almost seeI seen them asI believe the immense size of these schools of dogfish or mackerel sharks as some of the coast fishermen call them The fishermen say that until a few years ago a pack of 50 would be a large body Now they travel in thousands perhaps tens of thousands AUGUST SNOW IN NEW YORK Steam Was Called For at the Top of One of the Citys Skyscrapers New Y orkThe man on the top floor called through the speaking tube to the janitor Its snowing up here said he turn on the steam heat Youre a liar was the prompt response as the janitor in the basement 32 floors below turned awaY from the tube with an indignant growl about being waked up for nothing But the man on the thirtythird floor of the skyscraper was right just the same although the time was the other day and the place New York It really did snow although the weather man will probably deny it if you will ask him There wasnt much of it and it melted long before it reached the sidewalks In fact it didnt approach nearer than 300 feet of the surface There v ere those who professed to believe that it would snow again the next day when they woke up the fol lowing morning There was a decided chill in the air but nothing in the way of snowflakes came down Why they did so the day before is a mystery as the temperature on the streets was never lower than 75 and snow cant fall at that degree of torridity Pig Has Cribbing Habit The

More Widows and Spinsters and Fewer Wives Applied for Relief from Debts Last Year London Of the sun bankruptcies and deeds of arrangement in 1904 487 were failures of women compared with 4G5 out of a total of 7908 in 1903 Six fewer married women failed says the annual return of the board of trade but and spinsters exceeded the num s in 1903 by 12 and 1G respectively About nine per cent of the women had no occupation The trades in which the greatest number of failures among women occurred were Grocers Go milliners and dressmakers 50 drapers and haberdashers J2 hotelReepers and keepw Considerably more failures of womei occur under deeds of arrangement than in bankruptcy and this is partly accounted for by the fat that a married woman cannot be made bankrupt unless she is carrying on business apart from her husband Another aspect of the relation of married women to bank ruptcy is also noticed by the inspector generalIn numerous bankruptcies of married men he saysua considerable portion sometimes the whole of the furniture is claimed by the bankrupts wife Either she has purchased it out of mon giveneto observe how in such cases most of the wedding presents have been given to
