L'rof. Simon t'nttou Thinks Wire
Should Help Support Families.
New York, January 31. In nn
address before the League for lUltt
cation here, Simon N. I'atton, pro
fessor of political economy of the
University of Pennsylvania, has ad
vocated that women should marry
early, and when married they
should work, in order to have eco
Professor Pattou deplored the
fact that so many married women
arc in the leisure class. He argued
that if the ideal which is held by so
many men in regard to the support
of their wives is carried on much
further it will result in a detcriora-tiou-of
the race and a real danger
In order to carry out this plan of
economic independence, Profescor
I'atton stated that the slandard of
life of the family should never fall
below that created by the joint in
come of husband and wife, and un
der no condition should the wife
think ol allowing the burden of her
support to fall upon her husband
until the earning power of the hus
band has been so enlarged as to ad
mit such action.
"Lack of income," he concluded,
"is a reason often advanced against
early marriage. While I realize
that this kind of a condition offers
disadvantages, i believe that where
both the man and woman set out in
industrial development they will at
the same time develop in character
A physician who has been bitten
by a dog which he declares to be
rabid, but which was killed before
the truth could be ascertained, has
refused to undergo the Pasteur
treatment. He believes hydrophobia
to be a rare if not a purely imagi
nary malady, and as he has too
much strength of mind to be fright
ened into a nervous condition he
confidently expects to suffer no ill
consequences from the bite. If,
however, hydrophobia shall develop
he will retain his- wits as long as
possible and record his sensations
for the benefit of science.
A case reported from Asbury
Park, which shows the power of
imagination, is calculated to
strengten his opinion that a majori
ty of the victims of hydrophobia,
so-called, die from a condition in
duced by the mind. A fisherman
who took whiskey from a bottle fan
cied he had taken poison from an
other bottle, and he soon suffered
from all the symptoms of poisoning
as they had been described to him.
He died from this delusion, and an
investigation showed that he had
taken nothing more dangerous
than whiskey. He had taken the
liquor from the same bottle before,
so that it is a clear case of fatal
It is difficult to realize how great
may be the control of the bodily
organs by the mind. A New Or
leans doctor reports the result of an
experiment to determine the in
fluence of the imagination on the
stomach. To one hundred patients
he gave a simple mixture of sugar
and water, telling each to take the
dose at once. Returning to the
sick room in apparent haste and
alarm he would ask if the medicine
had been administered. Then he
would display great agitation, say
ing he had given by mistake a
powerful emetic. Eighty-five of
the patients immediately suffered
distinct emesis, as though they had,
in fact, taken the alleged medicine.
All of the fifteen who were not af
fected were women, and it is the
opinion of the doctor that they res
trained themselves in his presence
from a sense of propriety.
In several instances of death from
alleged hydrophobia it has been
clear that imagination had produced
the nervous condition which result
ed fatally, and whilCanost physi
cians admit that there is such a
disease, the best-informed doubt
whether it has been the cause of
more than one in every dozen "hy
drophobia" deaths. Philadelphia

General Lewis Wallace died at
Crawfordsville, Ind., on February
tG, belter known ns "Lew Wallace."
He was one of America's most dis
tinguished citizens, a soldier; states
man nnd author of great ability.
He wqs born in Brookville, Frank
lin Co., Ind., April 10, 1827, being
the sou of Governor David Wallace.
He was self-educated and early
begrtii the study of law. This
study was interrupted by the Mexi

Infantry. After the war he resumed
his law studici nnd located in
Covington and Inter in Crawfords
ville, Indiana, where he resided
until his death. .
In 1852 he married Susan Arnold
Elston. At the outbreak cf the
great Civil War he was among the
first to enter Ihe service. He was
almost immediately appointed
Adjutant General of the State of
Indiana, his experience in military
and legal matters making him a
most valuable man. Soon after he
was appointed colonel of the nth
Indiana Volunteers. He served in
West Virginiu and was promoted
to Hrigadier General of Volunteers
Sept 3, 1861, nnd commanded a
division at Donelsou. On March
21, 1862, he was again promoted,
this time to be Major General. He
commanded a division at Shiloh.
In 1863 he prepared defenses at
Cincinnati and saved the city from
capture at the hands of General
Hdmund Kirby Smith. Later he
was made commander of the Middle
Department and the 8th Army
Corps and performed conspicuous
service in intercepting the march of
General Jtibal Early on Washing
ton. He forced Ihe Confederate
General to fight the battle of Mono
cacy and saved the national capital,
July 9, 1864, Gensral Wallace was
the second member of the court
that tried the assassins of President
Lincoln and was president of the
court that tried and convicted
Henry Wirz, commandant of
Andersonville prison. He was
mustered out in 1865.
He was Governor of New Mexico
in 1878-81, U. S. Minister to Tur
key, 1881-85. He will be princip
ally remembered for his books.

1888; "The Fair God," 1873;
"The Boyhood of Christ," 1889;
"The Prince of India," 1893; "The
Wooing of Malkatoon," 1898. A
few months ago it was announced
that the General was suffering from
cancer and that he was doomed.
Like General Grant, with the con
sciousness that he had but a few
weeks to live, he spent his last
days in trying to complete his
autobiography. Whether I12 won

the Mainland told of her good luck.
By the death of Benjamin Burton
of Santa Barbara, California, she
has been left $30,000 in cash and a
fine ranch property in Santa Bar
bara County. Burton was a very
wealthy man of that part of Califor
nia and visited in these islands years
ago. He was a sort of god-father
of J. L. Rives, the grand-father of
the Princess Theresa. The eldest
Burton saw the Princess on the oc
casion of his visit, when she was
quite a little girl, he was much
struck with her beauty and grace.
The Princess never supposed that
she was to be one of his heirs. But
there nppears to have been a fond
ness in his heart for the grand
daughter of his god-sou and he
showed his feeling by remembering
her in his will. Rives was the sou
of La Fayette Rives who brought

Within the past three weeks
eight merchant steamers have been
reported ns captured by the Jap
anese. The record is ns follows:

Vladivostok with a catgo of 5,900

Japanese in Isu Shima Straits and
taken to Sascbo.

February 15 The Japanese have
captured the British steamers
Apollo and Scotsman, loaded with
coal and provisions, for Vladi
vostok. Much speculation is indulged in
by shipping people ns to the prob
able disposition of the M. S. Dollar
by the Jupanese prize court. Al
though flying the British flag, the
Dollar is owned by the Dollar S. S.
Co. of San Francisco and her cargo
was all shipped by American citi
zens. It is pointed out that her
cargo of foodstuffs is not contra
band of war on the grounds that
the Japanese Government has never
declared it to be such. The Russian
Government, to be sure, considers
food and, for that matter, anything
else shipped to Japan, contraband
of war. But this declaration by
one government does uot make
A parallel case occurred in the
late Anglo-Boer war, when three or
four cargoes of flour from American
ports and destined for the Trans
vaal, were captured by the British
and taken to Cape Town an'd Port
Elizabeth and seized as contraband
of war. After a vigorous protest
by the United States Government,
the British prize court at the Cape
decided uot only to release the
cargoes but granted damage, which
was paid by the British Govern
ment. It is further alleged by the know
ing ones that at the time of the
capture of the M. S. Dollar, Vladi
vostok had not as yet been declared
an effective blockaded port, and
therefore was open to navigation to
all foreign flags except to the ships
carrying real contraband of war
(ammunition, arms, coal, etc.)
The prize court at Sasebo, Japan,
will have to decide what shall be
done with the vessel. In the mean
time it is expected that the British
and American "Governments will
enter a vigorous protest.
The M. S. Dollar was the first
steamer to sail from the American
Pacific coast for Siberia, the British
steamer Wyefield left three days
later. The American steamer
Tacoum was third, the American
steamer Olympia fourth, the British
steamer Briukburu fifth, with three
or four others to follow.

victory that isn't worth the effort.
