shown in an account given by a writer in the New Amstel magazine of the strenuous way in which Mr Warner produced an obituary notice some years ago Professor Edward L Youmans was a close personal friend of Mr Warner and on that account when Mrs You mans died the editor of a daily paper asked Mr Warner to write a sort of personal appreciation of her This he consented to do He was left alone from 10 a m until half past 12 when he went to lunch Returning at 2 oclock xhe worked without interruption until 4 oclock when he turned over to the editor what he had written MrfWarner read the first proof and in suc cession three revised sheets Each time he made change after change in phraseology seeking out the one right word while even in the nicety of paragraphing he seemed to make clearer what he desired to ex press Nor did the close revision end with the marking of the last proof After the paper had gone to press and the first sheets had been brought tip to the composing room for an O

that was played at Annapolis some years ago between Columbia and the Naval academy teams One of the men on the Columbia team the quarterback and a very prominent player of the year started the game in good condition but after part of the first half he was kicked the head in one scrimmage It Iuj some time to get him around but ho suddenly arose and gave a signal The two teams lined up and play went right on- This man went through the game and no one noticed that anything was wrong with him When the game was lover and the Columbia team was on the way back to New York in the train this player who had appeared to be iu Ia brown study suddenly turned to man next to him and asked Who the gamewhat was the score wonI a number of other questions that it seem as If he hadnt been anywhere playIgreatly

as to the activities of secret service officers My Dear xir Hale I have requested the different departments of lue government not only those to whom you ent re quests but those to whom you did not to give me all the information about the use of special attorneys special agents inspectors etc in their departments which will enable me to put before you all the facts which I understand youil committee desire to have I transmit these reports herewith- I call especial attention to the reports of ths secretary of state the secretary of the treasury and the attorney general Let me at the outset most earnestly express my cordial agreement with the view that It is not only the right but the duty of congress to investigate the workings of the secret service or detective Agency by which alone the government can effectually safeguard itself against wrongdoing punish crime and bring criminals to justice I am well aware of the liability to abuse inherent in any effective detective system or secret service system for the measure of the efficiency of the system Is also the measure of the seriousness of the abuses of the system if it be applied to wrong poses or directed in an Improifer- manner It is eminently to the pub lic interest that there should be vig ilant inquiry into the working of this agency both by the heads of the ex ecutive departments and by congress It nevertheless remains true that this system is absolutely indispens yt A SENATOR HALE Who Started Investigation That Brought Out Reply able if the popular interest Is to be adequately safeguarded and wrong doers taught to fear the law To show how indispensable detectives are when important work of a confiden tial character must be done I refer to the experience of the immigration commission appointed by congress and largely composed of senators and representatives which has found it absolutely necessary to employ detec tives in order to achieve the best results Shadowing of Congressmen- In my communication of the 4th instant to the lower house I have set forth at length the reasons which In my judgment it is eminently desir able that in addition to the special detectives or inspection service of the department there should be in some one department preferably the department of justice a service which can be used at need in any department in o er to achieve the ends I have described I would Hk3 to state here that very frequently accusations have been made to me privately by members of the two houses to the ef fect that the secret service has been used as of morals or to shadow senator congressmen and other public officials Hitherto the effort to discover the basis for such allegations has always been fruitless I should be greatly obliged if any in formation could be furnished me tending to show any instance where this has been done iv mimes past Certain of the spe xal agents in spectors and the like vtf several de partments have hi 9y zpecialized work to perform In treasury department the secret vrvlce is especially trained to deal with counterfeiters and the special agents with customs frauds In the postoffice department the corps of inspectors is especially trained and particularly fitted to detect criminality or abuses or fraudulent use of the mails in con nection with the post service In the interior department the special agents of the office and the inspectors of the Indian bureau are trained in similar fashion to meet special needs In addition it is urgently necessary as set forth in Mr Roots accompanying report that there shall ervicelmelLwl10 ro Vanywhere in the government service Of course in the investigation of specific frauds we sometimes come across wholly unexpected phase ot misconduct The frauds in the postal department which were unearthed some six years ago for instance offer a case to point My suspicions were first aroused by a report made as to the very extravagant and debauched manner of life of a certain postal em ploye this report being made by an official of the secret service in con nection with another transaction on which he was at work So with cases of the abuse of the franking privilege the postoffice never of set purpose inspects any package sent through the mails by a senator or congressman but sometimes through the accidental breaking of such pack ages the contents are exposed and if they are of a character which makes their transmission by ranking privilege illegal steps are taken by the postoffice authorities to collect the full postage Some of these in stances represent real abuses but in other cases they are due to careles ness or ignorance and very often doubtless are entirely unknown to the congressmen themselves and no good purpose would be served by any pub Ucity in the matter j Brings In Tillmans Name But a case has just arisen of different kind which it seems to me I should put before you as illustrating in striking fashion the way in which investigations begun by any of these various agents in the strict line of their duty may develop facts of high importance which the investigators would not in the first Instance have sought to discover which when dis covered ought not to be hidden or supposed that the development of which may tend to create an errone ous impression that the agents in question were being used for pur poses not within the line of their lawful duty On the 19th of February 1908 see exhibit A Senator Tillman called the attention of the senate to a circular of a syndicate firm for the sale of lands in Oregon particularly in Coos and Douglas counties which had been granted to corporations by the government the letter stating that the company in possession of the lands was bound to sell them for 250 an acre or upon their refusal would be prosecuted by the govern ment and that among those who have spoken for a part of this land is Sen ator Tilldhan of South Carolina the leader qf the Democratic party in the senate a man who usually gets what he goes after Senator Tillman denied the state ment of this circular and expressed a wish for an investigation and upon his request the postoffice department through its inspectors made such an investigation He stated in reference to thi scircular anywherebuy anyI have made some inquiries as one naturally would in roaming through the west I simply want the people of the country to put on no Portlandbasoring to inveigle others into his gameJ I inclose the circular referred to as exhibit B the report of the post office inspectors under date of July 27 1908 as exhibit C This is a con fidential report of a typP usually not furnished but in this case the matter Is so serious that I feel I should put it before you I inclose you also as exhibits J31 D2 D3 D4 D5 photo graphic fac similes of letters and en velopes and telegram from Senator Tillman and his agent William E Lee It appears that on Oct 20 1907 Senator Tillman wrote a letter ex hibit D3 to Messrs Roder and Wat kins of Marshfield Ore who were attorneys representing people who were applicants for the purchase of certain wagon road land grants Dorr was a land agent making his filings through ROder and Watkins Senator Till mans letter runs in part as follows I wired you from Wauseau Wis as follows and write to confirm it Wil liam E Lee my agent will see you about land I want nine quarters reserved Will forward signed applica tions and money at once Members of my family are entrymen Letter follows Signed B R T I write now to say I wired Mr Lee who re- sIdes at Moscow Ida to go at once to Marshfield and see you about the lands to locate quarters for the seven members of my family who are of age and one for my private secretary J B Knight whom I desire to let into the deal and of course he wants a quarter for himself Tillmans Resolution The letter continued stating in detail what was to be done in order to enable the senator to get the land The William E Lee to whom Senator Tillman thus referred as his agent wrote to Reeder and Watkins under date of Dec 7 a letter photographic copy of which is herewith submitted marked exhibit D4 In this letter Mr Lee explains that he had written Sen ator Tillman fully as to the status of the land matter advising him it was a good gamble but that the senator was lecturing so that he did not get Mr Lees letter until a week and a half previously The letter continues In case Senator Tillman gets in on this deal with some good land in the eight quarters we want I am satis fied that he can be of great help in getting matters started from Washington and cause the government to get busy and do something along the line you desire He will set up such a howl that it will be impossible to do otherwise This will be very im politic for your whole scheme to have it J nc here to aid u tSenSrof the line By all ineans iterf a ipt of good land forf 0 I t 1 D We intend to be of more value than any one of the others ia thir matter On the 31st of January1toS Sea ator Tillman introduced in the senate the following resolution Whereas at diverse times various railroads and other corporations have received large grants of public lands of the United States under and by virtue of acts of the congress con taining conditions to the effect that such lands should be sold to actual settlers only or ia quantities not ex ceeding for any one purchaser a limit fixed by the act relating thereto or at a price per acre not greater than an amount mentioned In the act authorizing such grant to the end that such lands might promptly become the homes of citizens of the United States and whereas It is currently reported and widely believed that the department of justice has information to the effect that certain of the corporations aforsaid or their alleged successors in title having obtained colorable title ta large tracts of land within a state or states Of the Pacific slope by virtue of the grants above- mentioned and still holding considerable portions thereof have violated or evaded the equitable and salutory conditions so as aforesaid imposed by the congress upon such grants for the public good yet the senate is not advised that any action has been taken by the department of Justice to enforce the said conditions or restore the said lands to the public domain Now therefore be it resolved etc that the president be requested if iiot incompatible with the public interest to Inform the senate what inform ation if any has been received and what action if any has by the department of justice with respect to the matters and things in the preamble to this resolution set forth and pressed vigorously for immediate actionThe resolution being laid over Senator Tillman introduced the same day a further and joint resolution containing the same recitals but concluding as follows Resolved etc that the attorney general be and he is hereby directed authorized and empowered to take such proceedings or institute such suit or suits on be half of the United States as maybe necessary appropriate or expedient to insure a compliance with the above- mentioned conditions or to restore aforesaid lands to public domain or to report to the congress why such action as aforesaid has not been or should not be taken Submits Photo of LetterrOn Feb 15 Senator Tillman wrote to Messrs Reeder and Watkins A photograph of this letter is also at tached as exhibit D5 In It I call your attention to the fact that he speaks again of Mr Lee as his agent and of the correspondence carried on through Mr Lee He states that what he has done In stirring up the question of the Oregon land grants to railroads has been done entirely apart from any personal Interest he has in the matter and adds Although I never would have had my attention called to it but for the investigation as set on foot in con nection with the proposed purchase by me of some of the timber land in question of course if r decide to make the tender and go into the law suit I will bear your proposition In mind but I would have you under stand that nothing r do here in the senate will be done because of any personal purchase of any of the land If I can succeed in causing the government to institute suit for the recovery of the land and make it easier for others as well as myself to obtain some of it I shall do it without any regard to the dealings with your firm I still want to get some of the timber land if it Is possible and as it is probable that Mr Lee or some other representative of mine will be in your county in the next two months we will leave the matter of payment for the initiatory steps and subsequent proceedings in abeyance for the present Any contract we might make will be entirely apart from and independent of any work here in the senate I will be glad for you to hold in reserve eight of the best Quarter sections of which you have definite Information and I willf in the meantime press the tion and other work here which will facilitate the final purchase and in effect obviate the necessity of your making any case in the courts at all This letter in which Senator Till man requested that eight of the best quarter sections be held in reserve for him was written just four days before he announced in the senate that he had not undertaken to buy any lands in the west It is unneces sary to comment upon his proposal made in this letter to use his in fluence as senator to force the government to institute a suitwhich would make it easy for him personally to obtain some of the lands This letter purely pertaining to Mr Till mans personal and private business was sent in a frank envelope ofiwhich I attach photographic copy marked exhibit D 5 The assault by Senator Tillman upon Mr Dorr was according to the report of the inspectors a wanton as sault made to cover up senator Till mans own transactions I call your attention to the letter of Mr Dorr to the postmaster general under date of Nov 22 1908 Exhibit E in which he asks for relief from the cases which Senator Tillman desired his operations to be kept hidden and secret from general public knowledge The report of the inspectors seems to Indicate that this young man Mr l Dorr asked in good faith but that he used Senator Tillmans application for land as an advertisement THEODORE ROOSEVELT lJ I IIt r r u THE WWPHEI EIrNEWSr

there has been a big poultry show in the Coliseum at Lexington It was a fine show in every respect and I en joyed it very much I was only down one day but that was enough to see what fine work is being done in the poultry lore The varieties were S C White Leghorns Brown Leghorns Black Lang shans Houdans Buff Black and White Orpingtons Barred Buff and White Plymouth Rooks Pekin Ducks Turkeys Mottled Ancenas Jaras Golden White Bue and Patridge Wy manyotherAmong the White Orpingtons was the pen of Mr Louis Haggins who paid 500 for them four hens and a male He got them from England But we hear anytime of persons pay ing from 5 to 25 for a good trio of themHow very very few people realize how much there is in the poultry bus iness I will quote a few sentences from the Literary Digest for Jan uary 2lThe Secretary of Agricul ture tells us that the eggs and poul try output equals the cotton crop which is second to corn alone as a money producer But there is not one farmer ina dozen who knows what to do with a hen and chickens They are turned loose in the yard or woodland lot or barnyard to work for a living and in the average farm one egg is gathered where three or four should be produced if poultry farming was conducted as it should be There are enough hens in the Union to reduce the price of eggs to 20 cents per dozen in this town strictly fresh eggs at Christmas if the hens were given a fair show There were mcarfy two hundred pigeons exhibited nearly all of the fancyvarieties tfcere were represent ed more Homers tip say ether kind but lihere were Pegs Cuiaeux Afmean

1809 The Lincoln Centenary 1909 little Farm That Raised a Man Keaorial Museum Marks ihe Kentucky Birthplace of the Martyr President The Old tog Cabin RestoredsA iiHE little rocky farm that T Thomas Lincoln was too poor to pay for has now be come the property of the lovers of his son When the new ar riyal reached the Lincoln cabin on Feb 12 1809 the last dream that could have entered the mind of the lather was one comprehending the giorg that had thus come to these barren acres What shall the pawn Mywhen the Master moves it or what can it kiiow of the result of the moye Most parents think their sons may become president except those whose sons actually do become preside i1 They are frequently so poor they think little about it The wind blaweth where it listeth and a soul that comes into the world is blown by thewind of the spirit to what heights oc depths it may please him who sends the wind As for the rest of ns wo cannot foresee one single human destiny and it is just as well that we cannot When we plant an acorn we know an oak will grow td when we sow corn or wheat we an foretell what the crop will be 3ut when a manchild enters the worlcfc we know naught of the harvest whether it Is to be of shame or of glory There are no signs to tell of the coniing of genius The deity that presides at the birth of great souls maw miss all the homes of wealth and culture to light at a stable or a cabin in tie wilderness The wind bloweth where it listeth and none can tell where the spirit will carry the germs of GOds purposes Lincoln was born on the very outer rimro civilization yet the spot is now near the center of population of the United States That shows how far each century goes ahead to pitch its tents 1809 stopped with Kentucky and 1909 has moved on to Manila 2009 may go around the world and comeback to Kentucky again Who knows There is little to that Kentucky farm except the fact that Lincoln was born there It is not much for crops or itandacreekvery little eye either for fertile soil or landscape effects Battles are usually fought among most uninviting surroundings and the immortals are lia ble to be born almost anywhere except where we would expect them to be born If we were choosing a spot for one of the great ones to come into the world we would seek all the modern conveniences and a combination of seashore and mountain to furnish in spiration That merely proves that we know how to raise crops and blooded stock but we do not know how to raise great men This is a branch of garden ing that God does not leave to bun filers Hothouse methods may be all right for forcing plants but they are a failure for forcing genius The preservation of this shrine to they memory of Lincoln was made pos sibles by the generosity of Robert J Collier of Colliers Weekly There were several enterprising gentlemen whOdesired possession of the farm for advertising purposes and had it not been for Mr Collier one of them prob ably would have succeeded in his shameless design Among the bidders Was a liquor firm that had already prepared posters announcing Lincoln Birthplace Whisky The agents of this firm imbibed too freely of their own wares which permitted Mr Colliers representative to steal a march on them and bid In the place before they arrived on the scene for it is a Bad andt humiliating fact that the farm onwhich our greatest president was pornvwaa allowed to be sold for taxes This coupled with the further reflec tion that but for the interest and pa triotism shown by one man this price lessshrine would have been used for selfish and base purposes should make the American pedple feel quite proud When it was too late there would doubtless have been raised a great cry of Indignation which would have In creased In pitch as the centenary of Mr Lincolns birth approached We are saved from this humiliation by the thoughtfulness of one manrather of two for Rev Jenkin Lloyd Jones had advocated buying the shrine before Mrr Collier took the matter up Two men one of over 80000000 It is so GodVJIrids his agents even though men aretbUntJ The birthplace farm Is not the only Einqola shrine saved from a degrad Ingfusek Theold log building at New Salem in which Lincoln lived and had hi store together with the ground on wh1 the historic village stood was purchased by Mr William Randolph Heart3Ei and made a present to the Ol- dS eautauqua the second largest GbautauQua in America A whisky firm was also bidding for this to ad vertise some of its wares It would mem that the whisky men appreciate they greet liberator whatever may bet fertile rest of us It Is a romantic fact that the only building left of the New Salem in is whiIfMr Lincoln spent his young manbcfld is that which he himself oc cnplea All the rest of the town has cKippared like a dream village as performeds tfct elements leaving only his cabin z men eafo f By James LEdgerion Copyright 1908 by theIAmerican Press eIAt the time Mr Collier bought little farm that raised a man historic rock spring from which it took its name had degenerated Into a hog wallow while the cabin In which Lincoln was born had been taken north for show purposes and was housed in a Long Island basement This was rescued from the blight of commercialism like the farm and sent back from Its wanderings to rest in honor in its own place The jour ney to Kentucky was one of triumph The little one room log cabin was escorted to its destination in greater state than most kings and conquerors The railroads carried it free the Wanamaker store in New York decorated the car the governor of Ken tucky detailed an officer and four militiamen to escort the old logs through with safety Mayor Weaver of Philadelphia received it with hon or Baltimore through which Lincoln had to pass in secret to keep from being assassinated greeted the cabin that gave him birth with speeches of welcome at Altoona the school children decked the car with flowers at Pitts burg the Grand Army took it in charge at Columbus the mayor and superintendent of schools monde stir ring addresses at Indianapolis appropriate exercises were held and at Louisville former Vice President Stevenson spoke for the state of Illi nois and Henry Watterson for the r Lincoln Birthplace Memorial Hodgeoville state of Kentucky One of the striking utterances of Colonel Watterson who was introduced as the greatest living student of the life of Lincoln is worthy of Of Lin coln the orator said He was inspired of God for nowhere else could he have acquired that wisdom and virtue Where did Shakespeare get his genius Mozart his music Who wroto the lyric of the Scotch peasant As Goil raised up and Inspired them so did he Lincoln When a thousand years hence the truth of history shall have left no room to doubt no drama will be followed with deeper feeling than that which tells the story of his life and death God laid his hands upon these rough hewn logs and they brought forth a nations hero Thus the plain Kentucky cabin the humblest birthplace of a great soul since the manger of Nazareth return ed to its home to grace the centennial of that advent which had come to earth through its door Both the farm and the house were turned over by Mr Collier to an association headed by Joseph W Folk of Missouri and having on its board of trustees such representative men and women as Henry Watterson Cardinal Gibbons William H Taft Ida M Tarbell Jenj kin Lloyd Jones Charles A Towne Mark Twain and Albert Shaw The fund for the work was made a com mon peoples offering and tens of thousands of these became members and gave each his mite to honor the man who in his origin words and con stant attitude had so signally honored them On the farm the little cabin has been placed at the exact spot where it before stood and has been surrounded by a strong and simple edifice in which it forms the sole exhibit This build ing with Its Greek columns stands upon a hill and is approached by abroad sweep of steps leading from a plaza from which also descends the path to the old spring The remainder of the farm has been left as before even to a snarled apple tree said to be the last of Tom Lincolns orchard How fortunate It would be if with this revival of interest in the spot that t d gate Abraham Lincoln birth we could tor a like rv1Ta1 ot interest in w spirit his ideate and his aims He was not alone a man for one crisis but for all HIs fidelity to the public good his refusal to permit private consider ations to stand in the way of duty and principle his tender solicitude for the poor and humble and his placing of man above wealth of humanity above things and of popular rights above in stitutions his faith in the masses his devotion to the doctrine of equality and of the rule of the majority rll of these things are needed now and ever In the republic What a splendid op portunity this centenary presents to study Lincolns spirit the innermost of the man that gIVes him his hold on the people of his age and all ages While associations are making beau tiful memorials of the material spots that knew him and are arranging pro grams to act as the machinery of praise the form and shell that carry the substance and life why should not the millions of men and women who love Lincoln devote their leisure to a study of his life and utterances and an attempt to define the genius that animated them Then why not crown all by a resolve to give to the affairs of the nation the same unselfish devo- tIon the same high regard for truth the same love of the rights of man the same spirit of righteousness the same hatred of tyranny fraud and sham and the same faith in God and the common people that he gave in such full measure even to the sacri fice of life itself If this centenary this dedication of the birthplace farm this worldwide ceremony In his praise could beget a spirit like that it would be of un told benefit to the nation and to the race Could this people once truly comprehend Lincoln and follow the lines he marked out they would make of this such a republic as has never been known in the files of time We have never had a democracy as yet We have never incarnated in a government the principles of fee Goitlo Rule and the sermon on the mount Farm Ky I reproduction Lincoln bodied forth both of them He was the genius of these divine ut terances made flesh Herein was his strength his it was which made his utterances shine with the of love tempered his judgmeDt with mercy and gave him such sweet hu mility in wielding his unequaled pow er Democracy the equality of man have their origin in the spiritual Men are not equal outwardly but only in their fundamentals and in the inner most God and nature treat all alike Here is the model for human govern ment and it was on this model that Abraham Lincoln worked His code of principles consisted in the doctrines of the Nazarene crystallized into politics We need both them and him We can have him only by looking through his words and acts to the soul beneath To find that and give it forth univer sally to humanity would be a centena ry worth while would be of more help than all the birthplace farms all the formal programs all the panoply and trappings and state Not that we un derrate these outward things They are necessary but they are not precious in themselves only for what they represent It is the mighty the majestic and the merciful spirit of Lincoln that gives them life It is that which we honor and that which we need Show it to mankind body it forth in all its whiteness and beauty and we shall lend a glory to the out ward show which will make it an event to be remembered forever With out this it will be hollow and mean ingless It is for us to meet the crises of our day with the same spirit in which Lincoln met the crisis of his day Otherwise we are not worthy of him otherwise all our praise becomes but so much lip service that Insults rather than honors him We have our Lincoln farms and tombs our Lincoln homes and shrines jour Lincoln statues and ceremonies Now let us have the Lincoln spirit and we can build a nation that will be a memorial

election of Matthias was of God or only of Peter and the others we may perhaps not be able to decide till we know as we are known We shall surely know when we see the twelve thrones occupied of which Jesus spake Ten days having passed since He left them which added to the forty days between resurrection and ascension completed the fifty of Lev xxiii 1216 they being with one accord in one promEa heaven as of a rushing mighty wind which filled all the house where they were sitting There appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and It sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance verses 24 Thus was His word be fore His ascension fulfilled Ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence i 5 The women present must have been filled as well as the men This filling was not suffi cient for all future time for we find I some of the same people filled from time to time again and again iv 8 31 In chapter x 44 46 we read that the Spirit fell on those to whom Peter wjjs speaking even as he preached the word to them and they also spake with tongues and magnified God When tongues were given there was always a reason why In our lesson story there were gathered at Jerusalem devout men out of every nation under heaven 5 and in their own native t j tongue they heard these men speak the wonderful words of God 11 In the Babel story of rebellion against God all people being of one language they were caused by God to speak many to their own confusion Gei xi but here at Pentecost people of one language wore enabled to speak many languages to the glory of God There f seems to be somewhat of the gift of tongues granted by God again in there days 1908 but It is to be feared that there is much that is not of God much delusion by the wicked one There is great need to study closely I Cor xiv With special attention to verses 9 19 A greater test of the Spirits presence and power and working than any other gift is that of the love described in I Cor xiii The love that exalteth the Lord alone that unites believers in one great desire to magnify Him regardless of all sects or divisions of the church and to give the glorious gospel to all the world as quickly as possiblethis- is the filling of the Spirit to be greatly desiredAt many mockingly said These men are

quickly Most people prefer not to wake up in the morningthat Is they think of the pleasure there would be in just five minutes more of sleep ii only that alarm clock had not sound ed its warning Of course you have to get up and if there is really any thing that will make the job easier and more pleasant you will want to know about it Doctors have long ago agreed that dullness on first awakening

worried the Ger man dramatists of a century or so ago Is strikingly illustrated by a book on the censorship In Germany published by Dr Robert Heindl at Munich The German theater used to be terribly moral In 1795 the Viennese censor laid it down that an engaged couple ought not to quit the stage separately but that they should be accompanied by an official who should be understood to be about to make immediate arrangements for their marriage Even In 1848 misalliances were prohibited on the Viennese stage for as the cen sor sagely observed these misfortunes will occur in real life but they should not be allowed in the theater At Stuttgart the Iphigenia in Tau rls of Goethe was nearly prohibited because the Greek dress allowed the actors bare legs to be seen There was a long dispute over this point but at last the censor permitted the play on condition that the actors wore yel low tights Few would have Imagined that the Viennese censor was so careful of the morals of the population a hundred years ago but Dr Heindl shows that not merely political allusions were cen sored but that the strictest decorum of word and of thought was insisted DOn The Winchester News is delivered fcy
