IN the old building of the New York
university on Washington square,
the birthplace of the telegraph of
Morse, there was taken in 1839
the first photograph of the human
lace. The photograph was that of
Miss Dorothy Catherine Draper, and
the man who took it was her brother,
Dr. John William Draper, professor
of chemistry in the university. He
had gone a step beyond Daguerre and
by this photograph he established him
self as one of the great inventors of
the nineteenth century. -^w.;-./
Not long ago occurred the hundredth
anniversary / of* Doctor j Draper's" birth
and it was celebrated^ in the auditori
um of the university at Aqueduct ave
nue and One Hundred and Eighty-first
street. /v: -V-->- ', v :^;j,:-J„ 'J
It was on ' the roof of the old build
ing on Washington place that there
was set up, in 1840, the first photo
graph gallery in the world. To this gal
lery there came to be amazed and de
lighted all the notables of the day, in
cluding Theodore Frelinghuysen, the
candidate for vice-president on the
■ Henry Clay ticket.
Professor Draper took the pictures.
- His camera was a cigar box and his
lense the glass from a pair of spec
tacles. Doctor Draper's assistant in
" 'this gallery, the man who posed the
•sitters and attended to the artistic de
tails, was'Prof^ S. F. B. Morse, who
• only five years before and in the same
building had operated the first tele
< graph line.
% .The pictures taken in this gallery
"were developed by Professor Draper,
for it was his experiments in regard
to the chemical action of light that
had enabled him to improve the proc
ess of Daguerre almost as soon as the
latter's discovery was made known.
It was in 1839 that Daguerre gave his
process to the world, but it was not
then adaptable to landscapes or por
traits. In the same year Professor
Draper announced that he had found
the way to photograph the human face
and to overcome those obstacles which
made the Frenchman's process imper
fect and impractical.
In these kodak days the directions
which Doctor Draper gave at this time
for taking a photograph are interest
ing. At first, he said, he had tried
dusting the face of a sister with white
powder, but he later found that this
was unnecessary. On a bright day
and with a sensitive plate, he an
nounced, portraits Could be obtained
In the course of five or seven minutes.
"The hands of the sitter," he said
1 In these directions to the camera
fiends of that day, "should never rest
upon the chest, for the motion of res
piration disturbs them "so much as to
make them of a thick and clumsy ap
pearance, destroying also the repre
sentation of the veins on the back,
which, if they are held motionless, are
v copied with surprising beauty.
"A person dressed in a black coat
and open waistcoat of the same color
. must ; put on a temporary front of a
drab or flesh color or by the time that
„ his face and the fine shadows of his
1 woolen clothing are evolved his shirt
§ will be solarized and will be blue and
.black with a white halo around it.
"Owing to the circumstances that
Tellow I and yellowish browns require
"/ a long time to impress the substance
of the daguerrotype, persona whose
| faces are freckled all over give rise tc
the most ludicrous results, a whit*
portrait mottled with just as maUJ
/;■ Mack dots : as' the';: sitter has yellow
ones." H y
On March 22, r 1840. Doctor T)rapei
took from the roof of the building th«
V first photograph ever taken vof ? tb<
moon. His plate was exposed 20, mln
utes and the image was about an T mcl
- / In diameter. / The photograph was pre
aented to what was then the Lyceun
of Natural History. It created a grea
sensation at the time, not only her
ilrot / abroad. -.■:.'< Daguerre'a/' name / wa
given to the photographic process for
many years after this.
The, man whom New York univer
sity is about to honor as the first
photographer and a great chemist was
born an Englishman. He came to this
country at the age of y twenty-two,
graduated from the University of
Pennsylvania in 1836 and was appoint
ed professor of natural philosophy,
chemistry and physiology at Hamp
den-Sydney college in Virginia. It was
from there that he was called in 1839
to be professor of chemistry at New
York university, and he signalized his
change of residence by announcing
almost immediately thereafter his
photographic process. He was con
nected with the university until his
death in 1882.
Doctor Draper has frequently been
described as a pioneer in the science
of prismatic analysis. His discov
eries in this field covered a wide
range. He even anticipated the incan
descent light of Edison when he sug
gested as a standard for photometry
for white light a piece of platinum foil
of given area and thickness heated to '
Incandescent by ah electric current j
of specified • strength.
Capillary attraction was the subject
of his first researches and from them ;
arose his discovery as to how the.
blood is purified, a mystery which had
I baffled the scientists up to that time
I It was in 1847 that he explained the
circulation and purification " ; ; of the
blood in a work that attracted wide
attention. . '.' / .
Doctor Draper is still remembered
at New York university as one of ; the
most prodigious workers -: ever • known.
Besides his extensive research work
he found time to publish more • than
a hundred books, monographs and ad
dresses. He wrote a history of the'
Civil war f. in : three volumes ■•"' and his
"History of the Intellectual Develop
ment of Europe" was translated into
every civilized tongue. • /

; sey Devil" j has appeared again. This

j ity in this city, ;however,: and as it is
! only two inches long, it is not much to
|be feared. ' Louis ■: Hirsch, '; a dealer in
'gold fish at 1823 East Wishart street.

I head are three horns. There are four
I legs, each with five nails on them. The |
i toes are separated more like fingers, j
I with one that would V represent "the '

color of the creature is drab, with j
speckles of darker tone, and the stom- j
ach is yellow as gold. As there are
between 4,000 and 5,000 [fish in [the.!
aquarium in Hirsch's yard, he did ■ not ''
notice the monstrosity until he clean- i
ed the aquarium out the: other ;i day- j
Then, on the bottom of the tank, he
found the Jersey devil, sitting |on 1 its i
haunches and - regarding him placidly.!
The appearance of the object was [so
startling, said Hirsch, that if it had
been larger it would have frightened
him. He did not know whether it was
a fish or an amphibious beast; but [he
did know that he had something rare,
and he is guarding it jealously ["Hirsch
believes the devil eats fish, for :it [has
shown little interest in flies and bugs
that he had offered it. He has i put it
in a small aquarium with some gold

In advocating the "kissing colleges'- in
which the "art of . spooning" is to bo
taught, "that : there should. be a proper
course iof J instruction, preparing chil

should begin in infancy and continue
through life and youth.
i "Courtship should not 'be left to

r^S^STILT" MAUD LILIJAN
New Head and Body for Child's Bo
loved Doll, But bair Was
the Same. .
With tears in her eyes and a large
and very[ much damaged dolly in her
arms, a very little girl; appeared at
i the mending counter of a doll's v bos-[
pital the other day [ and displayed her
broken treasure. The "doll's[face- was
broken, one arm was; completely. gone
and one foot * was minus all the toes.
The very little girl confided to |me
1I clerk that she wanted dolly 'made
' I well again. "I'm afraid it wont be
1 worth while to ; fix it," said the clerk,
' ! regarding the new patient dubiously.
1 j "You see there would have to be a
' new head [ and new arm and new leg.
1,1 really think it would -be better for
'' you to get a new doll."
' I The tears t overran the eyes of the
very little girl %at this suggestion.
I "But I want her to look ; like this
doll," she protested. "I love : Maud
Lillian too much to have a new doll
in her place. [% You can get a new
:head for her and a new body, too, if
' you like, but I want her to have ; the
! same hair that she has now, so she'll
1 j look like her old self." ; v,/
The toy shop people; are used to
! carrying out | the Individual- ideas of
I the little mothers of the dolls, and so
! no objection was made to preserving
I Maud Lillian's identity; by means of
, her somewhat crumpled*golden locks.
■j a beautiful new doll of the [ proper
j size was chosen, her glossy new wig
j removed and the broken doll's wig
1 substituted. Newly bewigged in this
fashion and robed in the garments of
I the discarded doll, Maud Lillian bort
' a resemblance to ; herself that was
startling, considering the rather ex
tensive anatomical alterations that
had been made in her. The very lit
tie girl seized - her triumphantly and
bore her away, but the onlooker who
had witnessed the operation could
not but wonder in w'~at Maud Lil
. lian's ego really consisted.

The Antiquity of Man.
It has been known during a long
; time that to western ] Europe man ex
isted during the glacial epoch. We
' 1 now know j that the | great ice age con
: sisted of different glacial times sepa
rated by Interglaclal times. ' In glacial
' times the snow Fine dropped 3,000 or
; 4,000 '; feet below fts present levelß in
the Alps, whereas in Interglaclal times
it[ lay about 1,000 feet higher than jat
! present. Thus the temperature seems
to have been higher in the interglaclal
periods than it is now. ' ;
! ! 5 There Is abundant evidence, fin the
' opinion of Penck, that man existed du
ring the beginning of j the I last glacial
epoch. There is some reason v for
thinking that at least 30,000 V years
. have elapsed ■ since the last glaciatlon

found In- j 1909 near, Heidelberg : lived

HOW TO PUT AWAY LEMONS
Simple Instructions by Which the
. - Housekeeper Can Economize
: This Summer.
/J-Lemons ;: are an item that every
house-wife can economize on this sum
mer if they ; follow these instructions.
Dip each one in melted paraffins and
wrap in waxed paper. Lay away in a
large glass jar or crock. The large,
thin-skinned ones are to be preferred,
as ? these can. now be purchased for
about one cent each, and, as you know,
in the middle of the summer you are
required to pay three times as much
for not as good | quality; an hour's
time, ten cents' worth of paraflne and
five cents' worth of waxed paper will
be considered money well spent if yon
now put away enough to last you
through the hot spell.
/? When you wish to use them, all that
will be necessary will be to dip them
in fairly hot water and not only will
the parafflrie entirely come off, but the
hot dip will also improve the lemon
by making the* extracting of the Juice
much easier and more complete.

/When / making boiled puddings of
any kind try putting a piece of greased
paper over the top before the cloth is

prevents them from rusting, and so
saves the bother of cleaning them
when they are required again.
