Despair Over the State of the Country
Dr. Forbes Hons, a well known Lon
don physician, says that England is
"drifting toward the day when the
average Englishman's face will be
that of the typical criminal." He be
lieves, says a correspondent of the
New York Sun. that "the letter classes
of England cannot keep pace with the
fearful stress of taxation and other
! burdens Imposed iion them and are
j therefore iieins wiped out. In other
words, modern legislation is
; replacing the lietter classes by a niix
! ture of sheep and wild beasts and
the nation Is being propagated by
those retaining primordial qualities and
the primitive instinct and the averageJ
Englishman at this rate will soon have
bowwows. The English iiddlctlon to
patent medicines Is another evidence
of this general tendency to low spirits,
j Other nations see nothing In particu
lar the matter with the English. They
I seem to outsiders to be doing fairly
well as nations go What they really
need is a course of mental science and
practice In the cheerful point of view.
The Danes and Britain.
John AcU worth, un Euglish dialect
novelist, who made a special study of
the dialects of Lancashire. Yorkshire,
the east coasts and also of the Danes,
shows that the Danes by their early
landings and sojourulugs Id England
have influenced the language of the
east coasts of Britain to an extraordi
nary degree and that the Dane and
the British in spite of apparent differ
ences are one practically lo speech and
language as well as in the relationship
of blood. "Ro, strong U the English of j

CLEARED OF MURDER
CHARGE, WILL WED
Newark, N. J., Oct. 23. Allison
M. MacFarland of this city and Flor
ence Bromley of Philadelhpia are to
be married soon. Their mutual in
fatuation has extended over several
years. In fact, it began while Mac
Farland was married to another, and
shortly after the Bromley woman had
obtained a divorce from her first hus
band. MacFarland has just been acquitted
of the charge of murdering his wife,
whose death by cyanide of potassium
occurred a year ago. He was charged
with having substituted the poison for
a headache solution that his wife
w-as in the habit of taking. His de
fense was that his wife had committed
suicide, ua nis nrst trial he was
found guilty of murder in the first
degree, but the verdict was set aside
and a new trial ordered.
In the second trial MacFarland's-
counsel took the desperate chance of
putting MacFarland himself on the
stand, and won. The accused man
swore that h? was a iiar, and an In
grate, and that he drove his wife
to suicide aft?r he had unsuccessful
ly tried by beating her and other meth
ods to force her to divorce him. He
boldly said that had she obtained the
divorce he would have married the
Bromley woman, his infatuation for
whom was attributed as the motive
for the alleged crime. The loving
and pathetic appeals of the wife made
no impression on him and he stuck
close to the young aud attractive
divorcee, whose demands that he mar
ry her drove him almost insane at
All this he swore to, and much
more. He told how, just before it
became evident that his wife was to
bear him a chi'.d, he urged her to
divorce him; how she refused; of
s in which this
placed him because of promises he!
had made to the Bromley girl, and
