NEW YORK. Nov. D. Kurt Schindler,
musical director of the Schola Can
torum, was reported dead several weeks
ago, and flattering obituaries were pub
lished in some musical newspapers. It
was said that he had gon to the front
with the German army, and had died
fighting for his fatherland. But Mr.
Schindler has returned minus his hair.
Mr Schindler's long black locks,
which have been a familiar sight in
musical assemblies for years, vcro
gone, and it was discovered that he had
shorn himself for safety's sake.
Though a German, born in Berlin, he
was taken for a Russian spy in the Ger
man capital and had a nororw .-scape
from a mob which pursued him For
olecn wck8 he was shut up In Berlin,
unable to send word of lii.s affuirs heic,
and unable to get any money.
"I happened to arrive in Berlin the
uav before war was declared," said Mr.
Schindler. "1 had spent all of July in
Loudon, but previous to that, I had
spent Uav und June traveling about In
Russia, and all my luggage was pasted
up with thf labels of hotel in Moscow,
St. IV tersrburg, Warsaw, and other
Russian cities. After reaching Berlin,

and as I was in Germany, I could be
called upon for service.
"In Germany, while the whole country
has been, and is united on the justice
of Germany's cause, everybody thought
our only opponents would be France
and Russia, and that the war would not
last long. It was my duty to remain in
Berlin, but uoboay anticipated that the
Landsturm would be called out. It did
not seem possible that England would
get into the conflict, and I was prepared
to remain and await the call which It
seemed certain would not come. Then,
when England joined the war, I stayed
on, still awaiting the 'call.
"Finalls. with not being able to hear
from home, and the uncertainty of how
long I might have to stay, wore on my
health. When it seemed that I might
have to wait Indefinitely, I was able to

crowd following. Inside of half an

Experts Say Gunnison
Region Without Oil
Theje is no oil or gas Held in the
Gunnison river region in Colorado, in
the opinion of experts of the Geological
Survey. Br cause of insistent reports ot
escaping gas along the river, a mile or
so above Austin and the forming of a
pcum on pools of witter in the vicinity,
led to the belief that there was a large
oil or gas field just under the surface.
M. It. Campbell, geologist of the sur
vev, made an examination and found
the gas was not inflammable, and was
therefore not "natural gas." and that
tho scum was formed by iron deposits,
and ;,ot iv petroleum. The rock forma
tion, lie found, did not indicate the pres
ence of oil or gas.

IN IN YEARS. BUT
Many Such Cases Among In
mates of Kansas Prison Be
coming a Puzzling Problem.
TOPKIvA, Kan., Nov. 9. A new sys
tem of requiring a mental and psycho
logical examination of all convicts in
the. Kansas penitentiary to. determine
their fitness to become good citizens
when released has brought the State
face to face with an entirely new
problem in dealing with Its criminals.
Governor Hodges put the new sys
tem into effect some time ago and the
first tests have Just been submitted to
him by the parolo board.
The problem is: "What should the
State do with men and women who
are years past the legal age, but
whose mental activities are those of
young children? Thirty-eight pris
oners asked for parole- at the hands
of the governor In one month. They
were examined by the prison physi
cian as to their bodily health, mental
condition, sociological and psycho
logical record to determine Just what
chances the prisoners had to "make
good" as citizens.
Of the thirty-eight only six had tho
normal mental activities of their affe.
four were slightly below normal, and
twenrv-elght men and women from
twenty-three to flfty-elght years old
proved by actual tests to bo really
nothing more than children from
seven to twenty-one years 'of age.
The3e people hal slow mental processes,
but all were unusually quick tempered.
A man thirty years old had attained
the mental actiitieB ot a child of
seven. He thought that the highest
"profession" to which it was possib'e
to attain was that of a prize fighter.
It was his greatest ambition to have
Physical training that he might be
come a "white hope." When the
prison physician asked him what his
lowest ambition was what the pris
oner regarded as the lowest possible
profession that ho could enter the re
plv was "statesman."

the mental activities of a child of eight ,
"What are we going to uo wun mese
men and women?" asks the governor.
"Not one of these thirty-eight men has
an equal chance with other folks if re
leased frqm prison. They are too old to
submit to the same treatment as a
child of the same mental age, but they
are actually only children In grown-up

environment, lack of training and con- I
trol at home, and their minds stopped
developing early or when they stopped
going to school.
"Steps should be taken to prevent
the reproduction of this class as much
as posoib1e. but there ought to be an
other form of punishment for those
we have with us now than a penlten
itary. A farm and school, with the
community or group system of llvlnir.
and control without high walls, would
be better than a prison. We main
fcaSa a school at the prison, and It
does much good, but this sort of men
should have as much mental training
as possible, with the actual labor a

PATIENCE IS NEEDED
N SOUTH AHA
So Declares German Traveler;
Regarding Quest for Trade
by United States.
ntew YORK. Nov. 9. "The success
of the German in South America is the
result of his willingness to please, his
readiness to furnish anything the cus
tomer desires. That's what we aim at," '
said -Ernst Tischerauer. Mr. Tlscher
auer has traveled South America in
the Interest of a great German export-1
lng house for more 'than ten years.
"Tho Americans are like us In that
particular," he continued, "but the
English are not And that's the rea
son why we have succeeded in obtain-'
iriff more trade than the English, and
why the Americans will eventually beat '
them In commerce. An English manu-'
facturer wants to make a customer
take what the manufacturer has on
hand, while wo will make for the cus
tomer exactly wnat ne wisnes.
"Not long ago I wanted some caps to
sell in tho Argentine. It gets very
cold there in the" winter, and the people
wear caps with bands that come down
over the ears. I went to a manufac
turer in Manchester, and asked him to
make mc the kind of cap I wanted.
As he did not seem to realize that caps
should be made any other style than
that he had always manufactured, X
bought cloth in bulk in Manchester and
sent it to Germany, where I had the
caps made." m , , ,
One reason, Mr. Tischerauer said, why
Germans are so successful in South
America is that they have been drilled
like soldiers in their business, In which,
bv the wav. they are not accepted un
less they have had a definite amount of
scholastic education. '
"Americans are getting on well In
Latin America." he said, "but they have
some things to learn, and one of them
is patience. One man, whom I liked
very much, came to me in the hotel at
Lima, and complained that he could
not get his orders done in two days.
'I'll miss the steamer,' ho said. "Miss
tho steamer!' I said. "Why, man, you
must never take your steamar ticket
in theso countries until after your busi
fness is finished.'
"Another thing the Americans must
be willing to do is to be more free with
their samples. I travel with forty
trunks. There are about 20,000 marks'
worth of samples in them, on which l
nov rairhorw K.0W) marks dutv and 1.500

Mr. Tischerauer was interested in the
plan of Secretary Redfleld's Latin
American committee to introduce an
DTntioniTii tVint Tvnnlri not deDend on
London. He thought it wotifcl be a good
thlnir for this country.
"But it will not do." he said, "to start
with anything so small as 11,000,000, as
one bank has proposed. That's only a
drop in the bucket
"If Germany wins she will keep her
trade," he concluded; "if she loses, she
will begin at once to increase her trade,
to build it up."

AS TRAMP AND HOBO
Man Who HasnWorked in That
Time at Seventy-five Goes to
DETROIT Nov. 9. After spending
forty-five of his seventy-five years In
continuous, tramping from ono State to
another, never In all those years having
had a place that he could call his home,
and having eaten only on the- bounty of
others. Georce Gordon has at last found
a resting place In the county asylum at
Elolse. Here he can be sure of food and
shelter without fear of barking dogs
and scolding women, the necessary cotnr
plement to leading a vagrant s Ufe.
George was overjoyed yesterday to
receive the prized ticket for Elolse after-
an hour's waiting and Investigation
at Superintendent Dolan's b.ands. He
was worrying for fear this, should Only
be a repetition of hia previous attempts
in smaller towns to obtain shelter, the
order to "hit tho pike and don't let ua
see you-around here again." with no
relatives in this country and only poor
ones in Scotland, who have not written
him in years, he faced a hopeless win
ter, until he was allowed to go to Elplse.
"i came to this country from Scot

I aged man, "and ono misfortune after

another in New York forced me to
tako up' a vagrant's life. I have been
traveling in 'side-door Pullmans! since
that time, but the 'brakles' have been
kind to an old fellow lIRo me, and yi
have rarely put me off. 1 have neveny
worked for anything, but have begged
for nearly half a century, and though
no ono ever called me the king of
tramps, 1 feel entitled to that name,
because of my long hobo's career.
Sleeping In fields and barnsr have left
me rheumatic and shaky, and I am
afraid my roving day are over."
George stopped here to wipe his dim
eyes, and then went on to give his
favorite remedy for colds. "Any time
you sleep out In a wet field over night
and catch cold, three drinks of well
water taken before the sun rises will
sure cure you," he said. "It has always
worked in my case."
Superintendent Dolan felt that
George was imposing- on the county in
not having given the community the
.easure of a-Jonger residence before
applying for aid.
"However, this isn't Russia," said
the head of the poor commission, "so
I guess we'll have to take him in."
George knows a bath attendant at
the poorhouse. with whom he sailed
before the mast previous to his
tramping career, and is overjoyed at
tho prospect of spending the long win
ter days In his company.
