Imparting a little humor Into a dull season
In London. Medical students and the public
generally are finding great sport In his

have been unceremoniously stopped by the
precipitous fight of the doctor.

There Is less reason for It In London
than In America, for In the first place the

openly believes In apostolic faith.
"The disturbances and falsehoods, how
ever, have not been altogether a misfor

At 10 o'clock both the Coliseum and Music
Hall were jammed wllh audiences that were
so vociferous that Bandmaster Seymour and
the electric fountain worked overtime In re

But neither the band nor the fountain was
tho feature of the night. Neither was the
grotesque parade of the veiled exhibitor. The
small-boj-with-a-whLstlo was the whole
show after 3J.1 o'clock. An enterprising
exhibitor hit upon the Idea of giving away
whistles bearing advertisements of his
wares. He must have distributed 10.000, and

and Mrs. Marj J- Calkins were tho chief

before the trouble was ended.
The parade, which was disbanded at 9

of the ballding in various striking costumes.
Among them were several members or tho
Golden Chcin Humane Society, which main
