WHY DO WOMEN SEND FLOWERS TO MURDERERS?
What makes some women interested in notorious criminals?
That question, often asked, never
And thousands of people are speculating about it again, owing to the
desire of a Chicago woman to raise the money necessary to appeal
the case of Hoch, alleged wholesale
of some women for the Youngblood murderers was also a recent
instance of the same phenomenon. It is well known that flowers
and sweets and other gifts are sent to the cells of murderers by an
onymous feminine hands.
But the point that the murderers usually are men is not a ten
able reason for this peculiar and
It is a deep-rooted belief that women are hard on their own sex.
Certainly it must be admitted that there is good ground for the be
Bearing this point in mind, consider the fact of feminine interest
in criminals being particularly strong in the case of murderesses.
The Nan Patterson case was an example. And there is considerable
feminine sympathy for Mrs. Schmidlap, who recently shot her hus
band. The feverish efforts of highly intellectual and gentle wom
en to keep a Vermont murderess and a Pennsylvania murderess from
the gallows may be cited. In both cases the crimes were atrocious,
and there was no doubt about the guilt.
To be sure, the protest against hanging these women avowedly
was connected with the suffrage agitation. The ladies argued that,
if women had no share in making the criminal- laws they should not
be subject to their penalties.
However, it was much the same as the reasonless sympathy.
And the contract between the sympathy of some men for murder
ers, and that of some women, is very strong. The men either believe
that justice is going to be outraged, or they abhor the death penalty.
The interest of the women takes on a personal phase or character.
It is the criminal, not the principle, in which they usually are inter
ested. It is easy to say that these ladies are fools, or perverted in their
sympathies, or the victims of hysterical impulsiveness. Some of
them are all of that. But there is another reason for the thing a
Teason which has general application.
It is the modern feminine yearning, or passion, to do something
to perform, to accomplish, to achieve! a--
As the world has wagged until a recent period, women were de
nied the- privilege of doing things except along few and restricted
lines. They could write verse and prose;, they could paint and
chisel marble; they could become adulated singers and musicians
and actresses : the social field was their paradise of activity, and they
could devote themselves to charity. .
But suppose a woman had no literary talent,' no genius as an
artist, no musical ability, no histrionic impulses and no money or
prestige to sway social powers and no rneans to perform great
works of charity what could the poor girl dp?
Gradually the hunger of the sex to perform, to do things, has
grown in intensitv until their efforts to satisfy the craving have be-come-a
source of wonder!, and often of vexation.
It is this craving which leads some women to try to do something
for murderers. Anything just to do something'beyond'the sphere
of domesticity beyond the tame life beyond the zone of monotony
beyond the restrictions of the gentle sex.
This passion to perform and to achieve causes manjr curious
quirks. And it's going to cause many morer;now unthought of and
People who live in periods of change in' civilization's ethics, sel

In an 'English railway compartment two travelers were seated
an American and a keen-eyed old Scotchman.
When the guard came to take up their tickets, the latter had
great difficulty in locating his. He kept the official waiting so
long, while he rummaged through his many pockets, that the ticket
taker, went on his way. saying that he would come back to find out
the result of the search.
When the guard had gone the American saw the lost piece of
cardboard protruding from the old fellow's mouth, and promptly no
tified its owner, thinking it a case of absent-mindedness.
Whereupon the wily Scot rejoined: "Dqn't you think I know.it?

FREEDOM OF THE
"Untie your boy; let him get out and hustle; let him sell news
papers or anything, even the family silver, if he shows the instinct
for finance," said an old capitalist the other day in an interview, and
when further questioned concerning his ideas of the proper bringing
up of the American boy, he continued : "I was a poor boy and I got
my first lessons at figures on the street corner; I knocked another
newsboy down-because fhe cheated me out of a paper. I built my
fortune up from that last extra, and looked the World squarely in
the face from' that day on. No
that insight into human nature."
The old capitalist was a grim
glint of steel in his eye and the
of the soldier accustomed to guerrilla methods of attack; the sus
picious attitude of one ever on the
no doubt, for the first time on the street corner when the shock of
another's dishonesty left the indelible brand that was to last him
through life. But he made a fortune ! That is the main thing, some
will say. But is it?
Every man gets his experience
but he does not meet it in the public byways and at the early age of
the street gamin with his wares under his arm ; at a time of life
when there are no principles to govern the animal combativeness
that seeks in self-preservation the survival of the fittest muscle and
the most ungoverned instincts. It is the first lesson that counts
in the sum of a liberal education, and it is the duty of the parents
poor or rich, to see that the lad is prepared to fight for the standard
of right in the battle to come, the inevitable battle that is to prove
the victor's prowess or the weakling's cowardice.
Hardening is not the only process that counts in the making up
of the boy's character, for that condition is observed largely in the
criminal's early training, and it is
susceptibility to future regeneration or refinement. In the recent
confessions of three young criminals we see plainly the effect of this
unlimited freedom accorded the boy, and while this example is un
precedented, it goes to show that for the formative period restric

MEETING OP THE ENVOYS.
The formal meeting of the envoys at
Portsmouth has been accomplished with
all the smoothness and lack of unpleas
ant incident that could be desired.
As to the beginning of the conference,
it has been a distinct success. Why it
would have been expected to be any
thing else, it is hard to see, but un
questionably there was a lurking sus
picion that something untoward was
going to happen. The suspicion was
alive both at home and abroad. It
was the fkst essay of this country in
the field of such international politics,
and there was a good deal of question
whether we could carry it through with
out a hitch. That it was so carrieA
out is due in very large measure to
the personality of President Roosevelt.
The mere bringing of the envoys to
gether has been a victory that Euro
pean .diplomacy c ouW not have ac
complished. Not that European diplo
macy is of such an inferior brand. But
the two countries' most concerned felt
that in the PrcMdent of the. United
States they had a man who was anx

of them had they selected any country
in Europe. As to the meeting itself,
we had none of the pomp of courts nor
tradition and grave precedent as to
how such ' things should be done. In
that regard we were going it abso
lutely blind. Yet the simple courtcsy
of an American gentleman, wishing
well to two forcicn gentlemen and
aiming simply to make them feel that
they were both welcome and entirely
untrammeled. sufficed for all the needs
of the occasion. So far as any ques
tions of formality and precedence were
concerned, they were simply and ade
quately handled -by the State Depart
ment, which had the arrangements for
the meeting in hand. The parties to
the controversy have been properly,
yet cordially, welcomed, and it re
mains only for them to reach some
common ground of settlement. In

TOWNSITE PATENT IN BLANCH-
(From Sunday's Daily.)
In September, 1903, at the request of
people living on a stretch of land
near Blauchard in this county, Judge
Hicks made application to Washing
ton for a townsite to cover the land in
question. He forvarded the necessary
papers to the government authorities,
and has finally received a last reply
requesting- him to send proofs as to
the actual occupation of the land as a
Since the first application Was made
the interested parties have left the
country, and Judge Hicks will now
make an effort to have the application
cancelled, and secure the Teturn of the
money thus' far spent in attempting to
get a townsite patent. He expresses
some doubt as to his ability to recov
er the money already paid in to the
department at Washington; but will
explain the matter in detail to the au
thorities, showing why a townsite is no
In reply to the questions as to the
real justification for a townsite in
that location, he explained the opera
tion of the law on this point, saying
that he scarcely expected the petition
would be granted, and had told the -petitioners
The law is one of relief, according to
the probate judge, and is operative only
in that sense. When a town has ac
tually been built, and residents 'have
erected buildings and laid out thor
oughfares, a townsite patent is grant
ed to give those who have settled
there and expended their money. a
title to the land they occupy better
than simply the right of squatters.'
Cases in which a man or a company
secure a tract of land, and without im
proving it, undertake to " sell it in
town lots as a speculation, are such as
the law puts a check upon. It is
only to bona fide residents of lots lo
cated on unsurveyed land, that have
been built upon or otherwise improved,
that the townsite law applies and
gives a legal relief that grants a
good title to such property.

months I was given up to die. l had
fever, and ague, . my nerves wert
wrecked; I could not sleep, and my
stomach was so weak, from useless doc
tors' dmgs that I could not eat. Soon
after beginning to take Electric Bitters
I obtained relief, and in a short time
I was entirely cured.'-" Guaranteed

COLD CHISEL AND MALLET
(From Sunday's Daily.)
What proved to Tie a most novel
and successful surgical operation was
yesterday performed upon Ed. C.
Paine, Jr., son of' Expressman Paine.
Doctors Southworth and McNally act
ed as surgeons.' As the result of a
bmise on the side of his right leg at
the knee joint art unnatural growth
had attached to the leg, where the
bruise had been', which had steadily
accumulated until it whs decided that
an operation would have to be under
taken to remove the lump.
Ordinarily the removal of . similar
growths is a minor operation, and eas
ily accomplished-. But yesterday
when the two physicians attempted to
cut away the hardened lump they
found that the ' ordinary surgeon 's
knife would not do the work. . The
growth had become so hardened that a
keen bladed knife would make no im
pression upon it.
. After several attempts without suc
cess to make ari incision, the doctors J
decided they would have to use a chisel I
and mallet to succeed in the operation,
and it was in this manner that the'
strangely formed growth was taken
from the youth's leg.
The growth had become harder than
the bone to which it was attached, and
was as tonirh as animal "rNsIe. Cold
chisels and mallets in surgery are not
often heard of. particularly in such op
erations as that performed yesterday.

(From Sunday's Daily.)
An- instrument of more than passing
interest to the people of Prescott was
placed on file with the county re '-rder
yesterday, it being an agreement made
between Charles F. Goddard. Superin

pany and his ' wife, ' Katie B. God

Both Superintendent Goddard and

where they have resided for several

manner of settling their differences
will, no doubt, prove a surprise to all.
Since getting into mining as a busi
ness, Superintendent Goddard has
made a- decided success in his ventures,
and is now pushing work on a group
of claims that promise well.
He was east during .the summer, re
turning here a few days ago. "While
in the east it is understood Mrs. God
dard lived .in Los Angeles,' where she
now is so far as can be learned. The
agreement given below was mailed
from the mine to a friend in Prescott
by -Superintendent Goddard, with the
request .that he file the same for re
cord: The agreement, which is dated Aug.
S, and signed in Los Angeles before
Notary. Public Carl A. Johnson, opens
with the declaration that the parties
thereto intend from that date to live
separate and apart frQin each other,
and that it is the desire of both parties
that neither one shall be liable for
the debts or obligations of the other.

her husband from contributing any
