GEN. SWEENEY KNOWN
AS BRILLIANT TALKER
Xouisville Courier-Journal Highly
Commends His Lecture.
Gen. Z. T. Sweeney, who will lecture
in the Y. M. C. A. course at the Uni
versity auditorium tomorrow evening,
for twenty-six years was pastor of the
Church of the Disciples in Columbus,
Indiana. He has held several prominent
places in the civic, religious and literary
life of the country. He is now Com
missioner of Fisheries and Game for In
diana. The Louisville Courier-Journal says
editorially of Gen. Sweeney:
"It is not often that a lecturer who
is not at the same time a professional
humorist, fires off so "many good things
as Mr. Sweeney did last night at the
Fir-t Christian Church. Many a com
edy has been put on the stage with
les to laugh at in it than was con
tained in the 'Journey of Jerusalem.'
Mr. Sweeney's summary of English
character in the manner of fondness for
class distinctions was as brilliantly epi
grammatic as anything of Max

Sunday Supplement Has Had
Its Day, Says Herald
NEW YORK DISCUSSES MOVE
World Editor Believes the
Pictures May Be a Force
for Real Good.
The Boston Herald has abolished its
Sunday comic supplement. And men
in the offices of New York newspapers,
where the colored picture section, full
of Katzenjammcr Kids, Tiny Tads, the
Newly weds, etc., has come to be looked
upon as indispensable equally with the
editorial page and the sporting columns,
are discussing the move with interest.
In announcing its stand, the Boston
"Today the Herald abandons the
comic supplement. That accompani
ment of Sunday newspaperdom has had
its day. We discard it as we would
throw aside any mechanism that had
reached the end of its usefulness, or
any 'feature' that had ceased to fulfill
the purpose of attraction.
"Comic supplements have ceased to be
comic. They have become as vulgar in
design as they are tawdry in color.
There is no longer any semblance of art
in them, and if there are any ideals
they arc low and descending lower."
Albert Payson Terhune, acting art ed
itor of the World, who has had years
of experience in newspaper magazine
work, holds decidedly to the opinion
that a comic supplement is worth, re
taining. Mr. Terhune thinks that the
supplement, properly handled, is a tre
mendous force for real good.
Primarily for Children.
"In the days of the old Egyptians,"
said Mr. Terhune, "men inscribed cu
rious, quaint hieroglyphics on obelisks
and pyramids, to recount the stories
of their deeds. The were very primi
tive, these hieroglyphics, because the
men who wrote them were primitive.
Primitive men could only appreciate
and think of primitive things. Now,
the Sunday comic supplement is pri
marily for the most primitive people on
earth the children. It is designed for
youngsters who have not had time to
acquire much of an education, yet, and
for older children who have had their
educational opportunities crippled,
through one cause or another.
"Nobody contends that the colored
comic supplement is artistic. It isn't.
It isn't for you and it isn't for me. It
is for the people who don't care for
fine shades of humor, because they can't
appreciate them. The man who finds
Mark Twain, for instance, too subtle
for his understanding, has no difficulty
in laughing at the right moment when
lie reads of the adventures of Little
Necessarily Glaring and Gaudy.
"It is true that the comic supplement
is glaring and gaud, that its colors
blaze out at one, but the people who
read it, who really get the most pleas
ure out of it, are the sort who would
not find it interesting otherwise. You
hear it said that the comics often teach
lessons of immorality or disobedience.
I'do not think so. I doubt if you will
find anything in the supplements, espe
cially any feature which is a success,
that is more harmful than the opening
words of Mark Twain's autobiography.
"I don't remember the actual words,
but Twain begins by saying that Wil
liam Dean Howells had called on him,
recently, and that he (Twain) had told
him he was thinking of writing his
autobiography. liooa sclieme; go
ahead,' replied Howells. And Twain re
sumes: 'I'm glad Howells said that,
because if he hadn't I should have had
to throw him out of the window. My
mind was all made up before I spoke.
"Isn't it conceivable that the idea of
throwing a seventy-year-old man out of
a window could do as much harm to a
weak-minded person as any possibly -vicious
comic series? Mind you, I am not
admitting that in cither case the weak
minded person would be influenced for
the worse. I am simply stating that
I think Mark Twain's broad burlesque
is as open to hypothetical criticism as.
for example, the Foxy Grandpa series.
The Lesson of "Foxy Grandpa."
"Another thing critics of the comic
supplements do not take into account
is that all the series that are success
ful, that have long runs of popular
faor, are strongly moral. The Foxy
Grandpa series, which has been much
criticised, really taught a trenchant
moral lesson. Reduced to bald lan
guage, it told of two bad boys who tried
to play tricks on a nice old man. They
were always putting up jokes on him,
attempting to make him look ridiculous.
But they never succeeded.
"Is there any better way to teach
a lesson than to show the consequences
DES LQGE GREEK
Grand Jury at Farmington is
Investigating Fire by
FACTIONS AMONG CATHOLICS
Furnishings Removed Before
Torch Was Applied to
DES LOGE, Mo., Nov. 18. The grand
jury of St. Francois county at Farming
ton is investigating the incendiary burn
ing of the Greek Catholic church here,
oer which there has been a bitter fight
between rial factions for many months.
Judge Mo-.es N. Sale of St. Louis re
cently issued a permanent injunction in
the circuit court at Farmington
against the Greek Orthodox Catholics,
restraining them from interfering with
the Roman Catholic Greeks who claim
the church. The injunction against the
Orthodox Greeks was obtained by Arch
bishop Glennon, representing the Roman
A bitter warfare for the possession of
the church lias been on for months, and
it was no surprise to persons familiar
with the hatred with which one faction
regarded the other that the torch was
applied to the structure last Saturday.
Pictures Were Removed.
Before the church was set on fire all
of the valuable pictures, some of the
furnishings and the church bell, weigh
ing f00 pounds, were removed. An in
surance policy for .$2,500 was written on
the church the day before it was set
St. Francois county officials have
been busy trying to get evidence to
eomict the guilty persons, and it is ex
pected that interesting developments
will follow the grand jury investigation.
The Orthodox Greeks, who do not
recognize the Pope, got possession of
the church several months ago. Thev
worshiped under the direction of the
Rev. John Gratzon. The Roman Catholic
Greeks resorted to legal proceedings to
regain possession of the church. They
at first procured a temporary injunction
from Judge Charles Killian. Prior to
the hearing on the temporary order
Judge Killian was sworn off the bench,
and Judge Sale went down to Farming
ton to hear the case.
Fights Followed Court Action.
The evidence, according to Judge
hale's opinion, showed that the lease
had been made to the St. Mary's As
sumption Uniate Greek Catholic Church
m June. 1005. This is the Roman branch
of the church. The congregation, it was
also found, was organized by Father
Czaplinsky, a Roman Catholic priest.
TO SELL NOTED BUILDING
Madison Square Garden a Financial
Failure Since Construction.
NEW YORK, Nov. 18. Madison
Square Garden, the biggest auditorium
in the United States and the scene of
some of the most noted political meet
ings and athletic and theatrical events
in this city, is advertised for sale by a
local real estate firm. In many respects
the building is the most noted in this
city, and immense crowds have gath
ered there on many occasions annually.
But it has been dark during the greater
portion of the year and has never been
a financial success.
The garden was constructed in 1889 at
a cost of $3,000,000 including the cost of
the garden theater and the concert hall
included in the building. The more ar
tistic portions were designed by Stan
ford White, and it was on the roof gar
den of the garden theater that White
was shot bv Harrv Thaw.

boys never succeeded in fooling grandpa.
He always got the best of them. Pun
ishment generally follows their trans
gressions. People laugh while they look
at the pictures, and chuckle reminis
cently afterward, but the lesson does
sink in. They see conclusively that
to be bad does not mean that one is
happy. The same may be said for ev
ery series of comic pictures that has
made more than a temporary success.
We don't want to use pictures if they
are the least bit indecent."
