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.
Forces at Full Strength for First

For the first time since the Spanish

This fact was made public by the post

tant general of the ninny, In which nil
recruiting Is ordered discontinued, tem
porarily, save only In cases of tlme
e.xplrcd men, to whom the privilege of
re-enlistment Is given. The bringing of
the nruird force of the nation to Its full
complement of 77,hiO men, according
to one officer, was brought about In a
great measure through the publication
Inst September of nu nrtlcle by Col.
Ilelstnnil, fronting on "the nrmy ns a
enreer." 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

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

working on the murders of young girls
In Dayton, that Cnrr may be able to

Mrs. Carrie Mlddlestetter was being
examined by officers of the Fire Mar
shal's office relative to the destruction
of a house belonging to a relative of
hers, and during her testimony she said
that Carr bad confessed to her that he
bad killed Elizabeth Fulhart. Mary
Forschnor.'s body was dlsiDvered by
her stepfather on Jan. 23 In North Day
ton. One arrest followed another, but
nothing came of them. 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.
Again ninny arrests took place, but
no prosecutions were Instituted be
cnuse of the Inability of the police to
get the proper evidence.
Hecently a fire destroyed a house be
longing to Joseph Yoges, a relative of
Mrs. Mlddlestetter, lieaf Dayton, and
the inquiry hold adduced the following
testimony: That Cnrr had brought tho
Fulhart girl to a room in Mrs. Mlddle-
stetter's house. 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. Carr Is
said to have known Dona Glluinn, who
was also slain.
