Professor Haupt Explains How Israelites Crosred Dry Shod. Prof. Haupt of the Johns Hopkins I'niveraity says the miracle of the fleeing Israelites crossing the bottom of the Keil Sea dry shod was nothing but a natural phenomenon, the water of one of the Hitter Iikes. then a part of the sea, having been driven Into an other basin by n strong east wind. I'rof Ilaupt said there was no do.iM that there was n water way between the Hod Sea and the Mediterranean In those times, nnd Hint geological facts proved It. The Hitter Lakes on the isthmus, he says, were connected with the fled Sea to sucli an extent that they vere a part of ihit body of water. The spot where the Hebrews rrossed, he says. Is the peninsula divid ing the smaller bisin of the Hitter Lakes from Hie larger basin. The place Is some miles from the northern end of the present canal. I'rof. Haupt's theory about Mount Sinai Is that the mountain was n vol cano, and that the sight of flumes to the Israelites was described is the vision of Cod bcrnnye noun bail seen a volcano before. 77,000 NOW IN ARMY.

That the vnenndos then ex isting have been filled with care nnd discrimination Is attested by the rec ords of the various recruiting offices, which show that In the period between January 1. 1008, nnd February 20, 1009, no fewer than 10,084 applicants for enlistment were rejected. From now on there Is to be a systematic weeding out of undesirables to mnk room for promising youths of good character. SEEKS DAMAGES FROM LAWYER.

Hollenbock, assistant State fire mar shal, mid Bert llulllnger, a deputy tire uiarshiil. So strong Is the web of evidence in which both Iloulonbeek nnd llulllnger believe they hnve tnwlned Cnrr that Hollenbock wns given instructions to proceed to Dayton and file uflblavits against Cnrr for murder mid arson. This arrest, while biu-ing no direct connection with the Donu (Jilinan crime, it Is firmly believed by the au thorities, who have been ceaselessly working on the murders of young girls In Dayton, that Cnrr may be able to explain how Donn Giluimi wns killed.

On Feb. 5, or about two weeks later, the body of Elizabeth Fulhart was found In a cis tern In the rear of a bouse on West Jefferson street, Dayton.

The following Sunday the same program wns carried out. but that was the lust seen of her. The dress which she wore that day, as de scribed bv the Mlddlestetter woman, and the dress which she wore when her body was recovered are Identical. The next Monday, Mrs.. Mlddlestetter says, Carr confidentially nsketl her If she had seen anything in the newspa pers regarding the disappearance of nny young girl. She replied that she had not. "Well, you will." he is said to have replied, according to her testi mony. On the following Friday the discovery was mnde, and although she was taken liefore the court during the Coroner's inquest. Mrs. Mlddlestetter states that she did not dare to tell what she knew of the case through fear of Carr. Carr was nrresled nud held ns a suspect, but later released because of lack of evidence.
