To the Editor of The. Times:
The opening of the new Corcoran Art
Gallery on Sunday afternoons is one of the
mo-t progressive steps ever taken by an
institution or its kind in this city. It
is to be hoped that this is a forerunner
of similar action on the part of other
institutions devoted to the advancement of
knowledge and culture. The value of
Euch a movement, which places within
the reach or those who have no time
on week days, the opportunity to exercise
their higher powers of enjoyment, can
hardly be over-estimated, for nearly every
one will admit the ennobling influences of
art, poetrj-, music and the study of nature.
And what better time have we for such
study than on Sunday the universal holi
day? We need Sunday schools worthy of
being called schools, where science and
philosophy, and morals unpervertcd by
theology might be taught where lay ser
mons, unbiased by creed or doctrine, might
be delivered and where people might feel
that they have a common interest the
happiness of the race

WOULD PROHIBIT SPITTING
Health Officer Woodward Wants an
Ordinance Against It Passed.
It Destroys Private Property and
Is u Prolific Cause of Dis
ease uud Dentil.
Health Officer Woodward has (submitted
to the Commissionerh a report In which he
recommends the promulgation of a muni
cipal ordinance prohibiting spitting in
btreet cars. The suggestion of the health
officer has the personal support of the
Commissioners and will doubtlcsb receive
their olficial sanction.
This movement on the part or the health
officer ib based less on aesthetic than on
bauitarj reasons, and is in line with steps
of a similar natuie already taken In xew
"York eirv. Chictico. and iironoscd by the
city couucil of Philadelphia and the In
diana State loard or health.
Should the District Commissioners fol
low the suggestion of the health officer
the new regulations will liecome operative
alter thnty daV advertisement. Then in
every one or the btTeet curs there will
appear a placard warning passengers that
it is against the luw to spit on the floor
and that violation of the regulation will
render the violator punishable by fine or
That is about the way the warnings read
in the New York and Chicago street cars,
and although arrests are not often nmde
aud convictions lw,s often secured, yet
the moral effect of the ordinance has been
observed to be beneficent. It has had
the effect of diiectiug public attention
to the danger of infection from the victims
of consumption, diphtheria, typhoid. Mid
other infectious and contagious diseases.
The regulation is directed mainly as a
check against the spread of consumption.
One-seventh of all the deaths in the Disti ict
of Columbia are due to tuberculosis of the
lungs. For the sixteen years ending
June 30, 1SD3, the mortality record of the
health office shows that out of 7S.000
deaths, 11,000 were due to this terribly
That it is an infectious disease Is estab
lished bejoud question The bacilli of
consumption is emitted by expectoration,
dries aud passes into dust, but the germs
live aud, it may be, are breathed into the
lungs of a healthy person, and subse
quently cause death.
Then there K another practical aspect to
the foul habit of splttlngln street cars, and
that is the destruction of private property
It is not easy to calculate the annual loss
by damage to clothing sustained because
or the spitting practice. The dieses of
women are particularly liable to injury.
The Indiana. State board of health, which
is striving for the same manner of legisla
tion a sought by the District health
officer, lays considerable stress upon this
point of destruction to pioperty.
There are difficulties In the way of en
forcing this rule of action in the courts,
but the public yields readily to persimmon
In Chicago if a passenger spltson the floor
the conductor shall direct his attention to
the placard and shall admonish the wrong
doer to desist. If he refuse, the conductor
shall call a policeman, who, If he shall sec
him spit, may arrest him. The conductor
may also swear out a wnrrautauniii'.t the
alleged offender. There are few prosecu
tions under the law, but it is widely ac
cepted and respected.
A Capital Traction conductor said "ast
nicht, when touched upon the pubject or
the proposed reform:
"It is a good thing, and should be
pushed along. Some people, partlculnily
tobacco-chcwer". are public nuisances. Mid
ought to be set down on by the hand or
the law, or knocked down by the hand
of a policeman. Often have I seen ladies
be compelled to raise their skirt, and tread
their way carerully around pools t.f to
bacco venom that had been spilled upon
the car floor. The car companies and cm-
plojes will be pleased should the Commis
sioners Issue such a regulation."
A woman said: "The practice of spit
ting on the floors of ears is dirty, dan
gerous and disgraceful. It is astounding
that the sons and brothers of women will
be guilty of such u practice. Our health
and our skirts have some rights, which
spittei sought to respect. I hope the Com
missioners will squelch the spitter.O

A weak stomach is the cause of about

This is because a weak digestion pro

writes: For the 6ake of suffering hu

I tried many physicians and advertised
remedies with only temporary relief for
neivous dyspepsia, and not until I com
menced taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
last September, six months ago, have I
been free from suffering caused by the
condition of my nerves and stomach; in
short, chronic nervous dyspepsia.
I have recommended Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets to many of my friends and now I
want, In a public way, to say they are
the 6afcst, pleasantest, and, I believe,
surest cure for stomach and nerve troubles.
I write my honest opinion, and 1 will
gladly answer any letter of inquiry at any
time, and feel that I am, in my small way,
helping on a good cause.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is not a
patent medicine, but they contain only
the fruit salts, dige&tlve acids and pep
tones necessary to help the weak stomach
to promptly and thoroughly digest food.

SEVENTH AND H XREEXS. p
THE TRUTHS OF TBEOSOPHY
Countess Wachmcistcr's Eloquent
Exposition of the Occult Science.
Man I'ohseshCh Four Bodies nnd
Seven Principles, the Physical,
Astral, Mental uud Spiritual.
The Countess Wachmeister, the able ex
ponent of theosophy, made an address yes
terday morning at Typographical Temple
on the interesting subject of "Life After
Death." She was introduced by Rev. Alex
ander Kent, D. D., the pastor of the Peo
ples' Church, after the usual service. Dr.
Kent in his remarks spoke of some of the
points of contact between theosophy and
the geneial principles of all of the high
est forms of religion, and welcomed the
speaker as one of the many who were
endeavoring to add new truths to the
fund of human knowledge.
Mine. "Wachmeistcr first spoke of the
various manner, in which the people of
different creeds prayed, and described in
some detail the methods of the Salvation
Army, which bhe characterized as emo
tional. This style she compared to the
leligious antics of the Dervishes and
Shakers. She traced the song "Tn Ra Ra
Boom Dc Aye" to a Persian origin, all of
this to show the erfect ot trausient emo
tions socially and religiously.
Another thought of the lecturer was that
there could be no happiness in the heaven
of most of the Christian creeds as a
knowledge or the mlbfortuncs and crimes
of sons, daughters, wives, etc., would
contradict the idea or eternal happiness.
The knowledge of a wife in heaven of the
rnithioKKiifiKs or vlciousness of the widower
she likened to a btate of hell on the part of
the sanctified widow.
To understand death she claimed it was
necessary to understand man, whom she
treated as having four bodies and seven
principles. The four bodies were the phys
ical, the astral, the mental and the spirit
ual. Tho astral body she held to besubject
to the influence of food, therefore diet was
an important consideration in theosophy.
The mental body was nourished by the
intellectual food it assimilated. Some peo
ple, she said, a&slmllate nothing mentally;
r.hpv Rimnlv chatter all day long. The
spiritual body is a form of light fed by
every thought of worship and beautiful
aspiration. The lecturer then described
the various spheres to which the body and
its variations succeeded to the last, or
heavenly plane, where the spiritual body
rested beic-re incarnation. The joys of the
future state, shcsald, consisted In the
achievement of whatever was noble in
the ideals of the present state. Aftetxest
ing in this beatific condition the great prin
ciple of "desire'' was evolved, the desire
for reincarnation, and when this was ef
fected the evolution proceeded again..
In the final plane occupied by the
spiritual body thespeaker held that there
was absolute ignorance of the world that
was left behind, and this she maintained
was a wise and natural dispensation. ""We
live our lives here alone, for no one ever
knows the heart or mind of another. We
die alone, as we were born alone, and life
ia liyed alone In the last sphere of ev
fifMifntd. oxnollfintlv nut to ccther.
s$ Win &N
Rocker, oak and ma
Istcnce. A knowledge of the world below
would in cfrcctbe hurtful to us."
It was only through theosophy and its
teaching, she said, that one could believe
and say, "O, death, where is thy sting;
0, grave, where is thy victory."
iladamo "Wachmeister spoke without
notes, in a clear, stiong voice, using no
oratorical couceits, and relying solely on
her earnestness and diction for results.
The Hnley Hiind Concert.
"Will Haley hasn't much regard for the
courtesy of the Weather Bureau. It so
happens that, every time he sends out
word that he has elected nn evening on
which to glvTTtbe public a sample of his
musicians' accomplishments, that same
day do the heavens turn on the torrents
aud the weather generally becomes aB
disagreeable as it can.
Last night Mr. Haley gave a concert
at the National. The weather clerk evi
dently had his eyes open for the announce
ment, for the anti-Haley brand of wet
was on tap. ir there wasoccasion wanting
to confirm Mr. Haley and bis men as
rainmakers, it has arrived.
However, in spite of the elements, a fair
audience gathered to hear the band. Some
clay Mr. Haley will invite the weather man
to one of his concerts, and that will patch
up the difference, and the theater will
be crowded as it should be for these excel
lent musicians. Those present last night
were pleased, and evidenced their enjoy
ment In demanding an encore to every
thing, and double repents to some.
The program was interesting in present
ing two new two-steps, one by Mr. Haley,
"The American Beauty," which is an
attractive, vivacious composition; the other
by Mr. Stone, "The Matinee Girls." If
anything was wanting to make Handsome
Harry Stone popular with the matinee
girls, the dedication to them of this beauti
ful new composition will do it. The chorus
of trombones played well a selection from
"The Huguenots," and Messrs. hchuitz
and Wagener gave a pretty duet serenade
for French horn and flute.
The three soloists were: Miss Fannie
At Lee, who possesses a soprano of sweet,
but light, timbre, cultivated to a finished
degree; Miss Bertha Lucas, a viollniste,
with a masculine firmness coupled with
a delicate, artistic touch ana a swinging
fluency in lyric passages, and Mr. Wil
liam Grosskurth, whose cornet solo was
a pleasant success.
Funeral of Mr. Keyworth.
The funeral of John Keyworth, one of
the oldest residents of this city, took
place from his late residence yesterday
afternoon, under the auspices ot Washing
ton Commandery, No. 1, K. T., of which
the deceased was a prominent member.
Mr. Keyworth had been in the grocery
business In Washington, at Ninth and D
streets, since 18G5. He was also becie
tary of the Washington and Norfolk Steam
Protest Against .Engine House Site.
A petition, signed by a large number of
well-known citizens of Anacostia, will be
sent to the Commissioners, protesting
against the location of the new ,engine
housefor the eastern suburb directly oppo
site a public school building. The paper
points out the danger to which hundreds
of children going to and from school will
be subjected, and says thatthefcelection of
