Tho woman's clothing was scorched
by tho flash of powder, but the police
Bay there was no trace of powder on
her fingers. The pistol lay near tho

A search of the woman's effects leads
the polled to believe that her real name

eral letters addresed to her In that
name were found and they were signed
evidently by her klnspeople.
The police say the woman told sev
eral of her friends a few days ago

The letters were appeals to her to do
so. Her effects were packed as though
she had Intended soon to leave tho

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 4, igoj.
RAISE $23,000
FOR OCCIDENTAL
IMMAN 'EL'S CONGREGATION
SUBSCRIBES FUNDS
Hope* to Be Able to Contribute
$100,000 Toward School Fund— -Dr.
Walker Preaches Eloquent
Sermon
Twenty-three thoiiflund dollars was
subscribed nt the morning servlco at
Immanuel I'resbyterlan church yester
day for the Occidental college endow
ment fund. This bumi, with that already
given by O. T. Johrmon, a member of
the church, makes <90,000 from this
church, und It Is hoped to reach tho
$100,000 mark within the week. Dr.
Hugh K. Wnlker, tho pastor, In actively
engaged In rnlslng th«> $200,000 entlow
ment fund nnd pronched yesterday
morning on "The Christian College as a
Perpetual Man-Making Force," He
took for hia text the Incident in the
career of King Uzzlah, who called In
skilled engineers of Jerusalem In the
invention and construction of the
mighty engines of war that furnished
protection to tho city. He spoke of the
value of educated and well-trained men
to every community and in every age
of the world. He said:
"There were doubtless colleges and
universities in the old cities of Baby
lonia, Egypt and Assyria and from
them went out hosta of well-educated
and splendidly equipped men. And
King Uzzlah, with all his wealth and
political power, would have been help
less without the aid of these skilled
men. It Is necessary now to have these
institutions of higher learning. They
mould society, working from the top to
the bottom. Every class of men in the
community is benefited by the Ideas
and Ideals which colleges and univers
ities furnish to the world.
Seos Value of Education
"The things that are of moßt practical
advantage to the race must Inevitably
trace their origin back to the principles
laid down by some schoolman— some
one whom we pcorn sometimes as a
mere theorist. The thinkers come be
fore the doers and the institutions that
teach men to think and Inspire men to
be lnspirers are to be encouraged and
loyally sustained. When we speak of
self-educated men we forget that the
means of their so-called self-culture
have come through the books and ap
pliances furnished bY the students nnd
scholars who have passed through and
mastered the curriculum of some col
lege or university. Abraham Lincoln,
mighty man that he was, would have
failed in many respects If he had not
been surrounded by men who were
proficient in all the departments of
technical knowledge. And it is a well
known fact that where institutions for
developing such men are lacking, the
nice is stagnant and society decays.
The college therefore is beyond any
doubt a manhood-making force.
"Hut in order that such a force may
become perpetual, it must be equipped
and endowed. The principle must be
incarnated; the spirit embodied. It can
not be counted really us an institution
unless it can bind the generations to
gether, unless Its work can go on long
after those who first projected It have
passed away. And for one generation
who possessed the desire and also the
means to sustain such an institution,
to allow it to pass on to another gen
eration, who either through disincli
nation or poverty may allow this cher
ished institution to die, is to Bay the
least Improvident and foolish. It is
right that it should be endowed so that
amid all vicissitudes it may send forth
streams of blessing for a thousand
years. And In this way money achieves
an Immortality which It would other
wise lose.
"But the college should be kept in
close touch with a genuine and suffi
ciently uggresslve type of religion, so
that It may be kept to its highest end,
that of forming character; that of
making men fit citizens for two worlds.
Education may become grossly ma
terialistic and utilitarian: We must be
always on our guard to keep the best
things good. Let our watchword be
Education. Yes, but Christian educa
tion."
"Hg that is without sin among you,
let him first cast a stone," the gentle
reproof of the Nazarene, so often un
heeded by tho multitude that adher
ence to it would oausfs remark, was
again demonstrated a few days ago
on Main street.
Praises Mission Workers
It was only v man lying drunk on
tho street, surrounded by a motly,
jeering crowd of men and boys. The
man was well dressed, but that made
no difference. It is always the way to
"kick the fellow that is down," and this
• man was surely down, lying prostrate
on the pavement.
Mrs. Alice Manlove of tho Union
Rescue mission, 14T> North Main street,
passing by, saw that tho unfortunate
man needed . assistance, and with the
words — unuttered — "inasmuch as ye
did It unto the least of these, ye did it
unto me," pressed her way through tho
crowd, which wus by tills time calling
for the police, and helped the man to
his feet and was trying to get him
through the crowd, which was angry
because its brutal sport was interrupt
ed, when she \va« Joined by another
woman, and together they gutded hl«
unsteady' steps to tho mission, a few
doors distant.
At the mission the mun was put upon
a coinfortuble couch and was carefully
watched by tint mission workers. Thi?
first words that reached him after hia
drunken stupor was a song of praise
and words of prayer, which were, per
haps, the first he had heard in years.
Soon he became interested, list mini;
to the stories of redeemed lives told by
converts of the mission' and his whole
life passed In a panorama beforo him.
From v listener he became a partici
pant In tho service and professed
Christianity.
He left the mission a new man.
ready to face the world, saying that
he was reclaimed from a drunkard's
fate by tho klndnesH of those of the
mission who rescued him. The man
was a Texan, and, in tho gallant turms
of a southerner, tmld that his rescuer
had shown bravery that required more
courage than if who had rescued htm
from the enemy on a Held of battle.

CAR CRUSHES GIRL'S FEET

Down
Little Ineta Summervllle, a negress
living with her parents at 1348 South
Flower street, was knocked down by
a Pasadena avenue car yesterday af
ternoon while in tho vicinity of the
county hospital. Almost miraculous
was the girl's escape from death. Three
toes of one foot and tho side of the
other foot were run over by the car
wheels. The injuries will not necessi
tate the nmputatlon of the feet.
With her mother, Ineta was standing
near the junction of the Garvanza lino
and the Pasadena short line, waiting
for a car for tho city. For some un
known reason the girl started to cross
tho tracks as a rapidly moving car
was approaching.
Thinking that the girl would bo In
stantly killed by tho car, several wo
men who were waiting for tho car at
the same point screamed and some
fainted.
Ineta was at once taken to the coun
ty hospital, where her Injuries were
dressed by the physicians. Later she
was removed to her home.
BOY BAFFLES POLICEMEN
Supposed Young Footpad and Burglar
Refuses to Talk to the
Officers
Tho police have gained but little
new evidence against Harry Hendrlcks,
the 18-year-old boy arrested by Patrol
man J. M. Harrison on San Fernando
street on the suspicion of being the
"boy footpad" and bare-footed burglar.
The officsrs think it will probably take
some time to work out the case.
If nothing 1 of greater importance de
velops by today Hendrlcks will be ar
raigned In police court on the charge
of carrying concealed weapons; and
there is little doubt in the minds of
the officers that he will be con
victed on that charge. In the mean
time the investigation of the lad's pos
sible connection with the robberies will
be continued until definite information
is recelvsd.
On the lad's person at the time were
found a cartridge belt with several
rounds of ammunition and a revolver.
He also carried concealed a pair of
rubber-soled shoes. The lad claims to
be from Portland or Seattle, but the
police have reason to believe he Is the
burglar who Patrolman Pautz shot at
Wednesday night.

Standing Up for Himself
A New Hampshire innkeeper was no
torious for the bad quality of his beer.
A Joker from Sunapee, a gentleman
named Perley, said one day that he
would put up a trick on the Innkeeper,
and, as he Bat at a table with some
friends In the Inn, he poured a lot of
vinegar and pepper into a glass of
beer before him.
Then Perley made a horrible face and
roured out:
"Dreadful! It's a shame. This is
not beer. It is poißon."
Pale with rage, the landlord hurried
in.
"What's the matter with you, Per
ley?" he said. "That . beer is all
right."
"All right, is it?" said Perley, wink
ing at his companions. "Well, Just
tasto it an see if it's all right."
The landlord put the full glass of
doctored beer to his Ups. He drained
the vile mixture to the last drop. Then,
determined to stand up for himself,
at all costs, he wild:
"An excellent glass of beer. I never
tasted v better."

DEPARTED ONES
MEMORIAL SERVICE IS HELD
AT MASON
Excellent Music and Oratory Mark
Program— Orations Replete With
Impressive Sentiments and
Tender Tribute
Bonutlful iiiublo, fervent invocation,
eloquent oratory and sympathetic eulo
gies were tho order of the memorial
service held by Los Angeles lodge, B.
P. O. KIUh, No, 99 at the Mason opera
house yesterday afternoon.
A select program was carried out,
Frank Ilryson, oxalted ruler, having
charge of the opening of the lodge.
Tho oration by Lawrence Holmes wns
replete with Impressive sentiments for
tho good of the order he espoused. He
said in part:
"Sunday Is n gqod day to meet for
an occasion like this. This order in,
however, often misunderstood and Its
methods of geniality and Joyous attri
butes are often misconstrued as utterly
frivolous, but there Is nothing more
cnohllng than the character maintained
In thin order, with the acknowledgment
of the supreme being as an Important
factor In all its action nnd delibera
tions. Man yearns for higher relations
and heavenly attributes and I feel that
the greatest gift of God is the human
body and Intellect. We wonder at the
remarkable growth and changes from
the helpless infant during various
stages to manhood and the develop
ments to old age. Many advance the
Idea that old age is a disagreeable time
in the lives of people for the reason
that their usefulness is closed.
Should Start Child Aright
"I admire the attributes of good old
age, devolving upon the precepts of
useful lives from youth to ripe old age.
And In this connection a great funda
mental prlciple Is to start the child
aright, to be maintained throughout
its life. Let us make the childhood
of man a dream of nobility, elevating
him to the grand realms of manhood,
and the crowning priory of old age
when he stands ready to enter the great
beyond."
Rev. Dr. J, L. Pltner delivered the
eulogy In his emblematic manner, lnter
sperßlng the humorous with the solem
nity of the occasion. He said In part:
"This life Is one of great peculiarities.
Man Is the agent to bring order out
of chaos. It is his portion to navigate
the sea and control the elements placed
in his keeping by the overruling power.
He Is given strength to withstand all
the tempestuous winds that blow.
"I do not believe in driving all the
sentiment out of our lives. Music and
poetry would then be relegated to ob
livion. We require amidst our hard
ships and solemnity the music, poetry
and the mlrthfuluess that occasions
laughter to keep up our spirits as men
of Christian characters."
Rev. Dr. Pltner referring to the re
cent railway accidents said that it re
quired more bravery on the streets of
Los Angeles than on a field of battle.

PASTOR'S FIST A SERMON
Oklahoma Preacher Carries Out a
Threat to "Beat the
Truth-ln"
Special to The Herald.
LAYVTON, Okla.. Dec. 1.-The Rev.
R. 11. Simms. a Baptist preacher,
has wtartod to "beat tho truth into nome
people's heads" sooner than was ex
pected, when he announced from the
pulpit that he would have to start that
sort of campaign.
Mr. Simms ana William Scott, a
wealthy farmer and school director, met
In front of the school house as tho con
gregation wav dispersing. Mr. Scott
opened hostilities by saying:
"You're a blasphemer; you have
preached what is untrue; you have un
churched the rest of the neighborhood
but your own little flock."
"It's a He!"
"It is tho truth for you have just said
in your sermon that after a man is con
verted he can go out and kill his fellow
man and yet not bo deprived of hia
right to tho kingdom of heaven."
Biff 1 and William Scott fell senselosa
to the ground. The wife of the pros
trate man Intervened and the preacher
struck her twice on the arm. Women
and children screamed und fled. It
looked as if a free for all light wad
about to ensue. Friends took thi>
preacher in charge, and the affair was
ended, unless the courts have a word to
say.
The affair wan due to a conflict of
dates that produced temper In the
minds of the Missionary Huptlxts and
the Kreo Will Baptists. Mr. Hlmms, of
the former faith, had an appointment to
preach when the Rev. W. C. Austin, of
the latter faith, returned from Arkansas
and called a meeting for tho same hour.
Mr. Blmnis preached and Mr. Austin
made notes.
Home assertions made by tho preach
er were hUßed by part of the congrega
tion. He turned to a deacon near by
and said: "Brother Smith, we'll have to

OWL GETS BACK ON PERCH
Quarrels With His Mate but Hoots
Until She Finally Re.
Lents
Special to The Herald.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Desire for
sleep yesterday overcame the dislike of
Carrie, an owl in the menagerie in Cen
tral park, for Luke, her mate, and to
Induce him to stop hooting when she
wanted to enjoy slumber she permitted
him to share her perch, from which ho
had been banished.
Luke and Carrie live happily together
in their home near the eagle's cage
until about a week ago. At that time a
quarrel, due to v misunderstanding, ap
parently about the rights of each other
to the middle or their perch, occurred.
Carrie forced Luke to leave the perch,
and he wan compelled to be content
with the stone floor of the cage.
To be revenged on his mate Luke re
mained awake every day and hooted
loudly. When Carrie opened her eyes
he stopped his cries, but Immediately
began them again when she tried to
sleep. Despite the annoyance she per
sisted In forcing him off the perch when
he tried to regain his old position
there.
Exhausted and ill from lack of sleep,
she did not object yesterday when Lukn
perched near her. After he had seen he
would be allowed to retain his position
on tho perch Luke refrained from hoot
ing und permittted his mate to sleep.

ASKS LAW TO HELP HER
Woman Sues for Divorce From Her
Sepond Husband When First
One Appears
Special to The Herald.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., Dec. 3.—
Four hours after she discovered that
she had two living 1 husbands, Mrs.
Ada 0. Kepp of this city began BUlt
for the annulment of her second mar
riage. Later she may apply for a di
vorce from her first husband, whom
she found today after a drive of
twenty miles.
Before a new law became effective,
in 1903, a second marriage under such
conditions would not have been con
sidered a marriage at all. Now, how
over. It Is legally necessary to obtain
an annulment. The caso is the first
of its kind In this state.
Seventeen years ago the husband of
Mrs. Kepp, who was then Mrs. Hiram
Steele, left her, and she never 1 saw
him again until today. Four * years
later his brother wrote her that he
was dead, and three years after that
ehe married Kepp.
A few years ago she heard that her
first husband was living.
Her search for him resulted in find
ing him today, at Chase, a country
place, near here, a charge upon the
poor district. He aßked after his
children, one of whom, a boy of 17 he
has never seen. As Boon an she could
return to this city she had Attorney
Q. A. Gates commence suit for the an
nulment of her marriage to Kepp.
