Dr. Nichols was born in 1869 at Leav
enworth, Kas. He received his early
education in the west and was grad
uated at the age of nineteen from the
Kansas Agricultural college, with the
degree of B. S. The next year was
spent in teaching, and the following
years as a graduate student in mathe
matics and physics at Cornell univer
sity, where he held the Erastus
In 1892 he was appointed to the
chair of physics and astronomy in
Colgate university. Dr. Nichols was
at Colgate six years, but two and a
half years of the time were spent on
leave of absence, studying at the Uni
versity of Berlin. While a student in
Berlin he devised a new form of the
radiometer, by means of which radi
ant energy could be measured with
great precision. After his return to
America he used this instrument at
the Yerkes observatory in Wisconsin
and the Mount Wilson observatory,
California, in attempts, largely suc
cessful, to measure the heat from
the stars and planets.
In 1898 Dr. Nichols was called to
the professorship of physics in Dart

position for five years. He then be

RAILROAD LABORERS SUPPOSED
TO HAVE BEEN SAVED DURING
KEY WEST STORM LOST THEIR
I4VES ON THE ISLANDS.
New Orleans. La., Oct. 14. —Ac-
cording to a wireless message from
Key West today at least 1,000 men
employed on the Florida East Coast
railroad were drowned in the storm
which wrecked a large part of the
roadway across the Keys. Many of
these reported to have perished were
living in houseboats made fast to the
trestlework or anchored in the shal
lows surrounding the marshy islands.
Earlier it was reported that the
men escaped but these reports are
being contradicted by later advices
reaching the mainland. West is
still under martial law, and a num
ber of looters have been taken into
custody by the troops and police, who
are on constant guard.
The buildings wrecked by the fury
of the hurricane are being torn down
and the almost impassable streets are
j slowly being cleared of tangled de
It is estimated that the damage ;
| done is over $2,000,000. Reports of

pouring into the city from all sec

•it is difficult to learn exactly what
the loss of life is. The dispatches,
however, tend to confirm the reports
that there was great loss of life, par
ticularly on the Southern Keys.
Appeals for Aid.
An appeal for aid for the citizens
!of Key We3t was issued today by
Mayor Fogarty. He said that prac

Starvation threatens the city, the

THOMAS UPTON IS
MOST EXCLUSIVE YACHT CLUB
IX THE WORLD WILL NOT

London. Oct. 14. —A serious set

Thomas Lipton has just occurred. His
application for membership in the

Yacht Squadron club. too. though
King Edward personally put up Lin
ton's name for election. The Royal
Yacht Squadron club is the most ex
clusive in the world, and so particu
lar are many of its members con
cerning the men with whom they as
sociate that dozens of persons of un
questioned social position have been
"pilled." It has happened so often
that it is considered no longer even
a matter for comment.
But to be blackballed by the Royal
Yacht Squadron club and the Royal
Thames Yacht club are two very dif
ferent things. The Royal Thames
Yacht club is distinctively second
rate and the rejection of his appli
cation is considered a great snub.
Sir Thomas is not, in fact, popu
lar with the British aristocracy. The
truth is they resent his rise. As
long as he remained merely a mil
lionaire there was no objection to
him, but when a title was conferred
upon him, the "upper circles" im
mediately jumped to the conclnsion
that Sir Thomas was bent on a social
clmb and was trying to force himself
into the coterie of the socially elect.
Then he began to b?< disliked as an
"upstart" and his position has been

Herbert A. Hoover has just return-1

"Europe is a veritable paradise for:

his trip abroad. "The roads are un

result, there are frequent head-on;
collisions, which invariably end fatal

of thousands of dollars' worth of:
property annually. From four to five
