For First Time in Three Years The Art Association's Annual Display Will Open Tomor row Evening. GREAT SUCCESS CERTAIN High School Lads Win , from Garfield. Spring Chickens, to Try or Broil. LOCAL ART MOVEMENT HAS ACHIEVED MUCH IN PAST AND PRESENT EXHIBIT IS UP TO THE STANDARD. The annual exhibit of paintings and other art works given by the Rich' mond Art Association, will open to morrow evening in the Garfield school building and will continue two weeks. It perhaps would be untruthful to say that this year's exhibit will eclipse that of last year or the year before, for this achievement would seem al most impossible after the remarkable results - attained during the past two years, but the officers of the associa tion and those persons who have been given the privilege of an advance glimpse of the display have no hesi tancy in saying that the exhibit equals In all respects its most Successful predecessors and this is saying a great deal. Achievements In Past. What the local art movement has done in a half dozen years is pretty generally known in the art centers of America for the story has been told end retold in art publications, but there is no better testmony to the great work of the association than the offerings of art works that this year have come from some of the country's best known painters. It has come to pass during the brief period of the local association's exist ence, that a true understanding of the movement's purpose has gone broadcast. There is no selfish mo tive behind these annual' exhibits. There absolutely is no compensation for any of the hundred individuals who give much of their time during tho course of a year to the work and the association itself derives no fi nancial profit from annual exhibits. The movement is ideational purely. The Early Difficulties. There were some who attempted to discourage the leaders when the project was first launched, taking the view that it would be out of the ques tion for Richmond to secure the ex amples of the art work of famous painters, and it was a difficult task at the outset, but the enthusiasm of the leaders was unbounded, and the first work was to inaugurate a "cam paign of education" among he art sts themselves. Men and women who had risen to fame through the agency of their talents and who were so absorbed in their work . that they perhaps had never heard of Rich mond, were made to know something of the art movement in the Hoosier city. They were told that it was one of the very few art exhibits that was maintained by means of hundreds of free will contributions and not by the generosity of any one man or set of men; that it was educational in its scope and that it afforded thousands of persons an opportunity of seeing paintings and learning about them, who otherwise would " never be ena bled to do so. A Private View. Tomorrow night's opening will be for tho members of tho Art Associa tion only, and every person who has purchased membership tickets is in vited to attend.

The Pennsylvania Linos excursion to Dayton yesterday took 57 people out of Richmond, while the Dayton & Western, the electric road, sold 245 tickets at the local station. This prac tically marks the end of steam road competition with electric lines for ex cursion business. Dayton can be reached by the electric cars in two hours, and cars run hourly. The steam road can haul a train in a half hour less time, but there is only one train a day on which the cheap rate tickets are good. One car from Dayton yesterday, on the D. & V. showed by its indicator and register that 154 fares had been collected during the two hour trip. A fair average from thirty to thirty-five cents, making the receipts for the run between $45 and $50. Traffic on all cars was nearly as heavy as on this one. BACCALAUREATE AT EARLHAM COLLEGE (Continued From Page One.) would not be here. Strength and a fierce disposition have saved the lion; speed and mildness the rein deer; bigness has favored the whale and the elephant; littleness the mouse and the microbe; defiance has been the virtue of the crow and thistle; cunning has protected the fox and co yote; the robin flies, the penguin swims, the , loon dives, ( the heron wades, the ostrich walks, the parrot climbs, the blackbird and cedarbird are gregarious, they help one anoth er; the sandpiper and the vireo are solitary, they struggle single handed. Nature Stands Aside. "Nature lets every one win by its choice if it can. She does not help; she does not hinder. She lends her laws to all alike. She crowns the vie tor. 1 She buries the dead and the on coming millions may learn if they can. 'It is axiomatic that one must take care of himself before he can help others. It needs no argument that if everyone took care of himself and his own physically, almshouses would be unknown. That if every one took care of himself morally, the churches' might look to the uplifting of charac ter instead of its formation. We can not give until we get. Our getting determines - our ablity to give. We cannot impart knowledge, emotion, money or muscle which we have not. The man who lives the out giving life in the community helps its weak est and its strongest members. One's best provokes his neighbors best The contagion of health, of youth, of honor has never been befter illustrat ed than by President Roosevelt. Pol iticians are learning from him what they failed to learn from Shakespeare or the Bible, that "corruption wins not more than money." Man Wants to Lead. Nothing can pay better than the long, difficult task of educating a peo ple. It is its own reward as it pro gresses; it allies and strengthens the forces which any other course estrang es and weakens. Let men find out that your purpose is constructive a,nd obstacles will vanish and the way be fore you will broaden as it leads to the light. Everywhere and in every sort of work, men are looking for premiership. Between the iconoclast who breaks with his surroundings and the mediocrity that sinks into its sur roundings, there is room for an in spiring leadership that sees the next step that ought to be taken, and helps other men to see and take it. "Rest furnishes us all another adap tion to the life struggle. Surrender to the holiday impulse occasionally. Seek the mountain, the ocean, the cave, the canyon, the grove. The best influences that ever overshadow us come to us in quiet moments. This has led many to believe that the idle life is the ideal life. But how should he rest who is not tired? This mountain-top life for a morqentis to streng then us for the valley's call. A year of Junes would rob June of its charm." DEATH OF GRIP SCOTT Former Richmond Man Passed Away Last Tuesday at San Francisco Was Widely Known Here. Richmond friends have received the information that Grip Scott, a former Richmond man, died last Tuesday In San Francisco. Mr. Scott was a resi dent of Richmond for a long period and served several years on the police force. He was a veteran of the civil war and was a member of Sol Mere dith post while residing here. Eight or ten years aap Mr. and Mrs. Scott removed to Chicago and a year or so ago went to California to live with a married daugh Sunday Excursion Cincinnati. via rennsyivanlaLlni $1.25 round trip from RichmdS pecial train leaves 7:00 a. m.

Senator Cnllom is like the martyr president in at least two respects both were born In Kentucky and both practiced law In Springfield, 111. Another point of similarity between the two is said to be -found in the fact that the Illinois senator resembles the great emancipator not only in the cut of his beard and his features, but in his long, angular form. Cullom was born twenty years after Lincoln, but remembers the war president well. Senator Cullom has recently been prominent in the rate bill fight. SE WILL BE GOOD ONE Much Money Will Be Spent in New Buildings and in Re modeling the Old. ARCHITECTS VERY BUSY ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE IS THAT AT THE FIRST ENG LISH LUTHERAN CHURCH. The poor building prospects, which discouraged architects and contractors a few months ago, have turned out contrary to expectations and the sum mer of 1903 now promises to outdis tance any other season In the amount of money spent in building residences and in remodeling. All contractors have their hands full and will be busy for several weeks. Architects are, of course sharing in the boom, and are busy preparing plans and specifica tions for many residences, as well as other buildings. One well known architect stated yesterday that it is his belief that the cla?s of buildings being erected this year is better than the grade of houses built last year. There are several fine residences, costing $5,000 or more each to be erected this sum mer. Wood is being used almost al together, it seems, in building the houses. There is considerable remod eling being done, and more money is really, being spent in this way than in new structures. Probably the most expensive piece of work proposed for this summer is the remodeling of the First English Lutheran Church, on South 11th St. This will cost in the neighborhood of $10,000. The addition which is to be of brick and will be finely furnished. The brick addition to the St. Paul's Lutheran Church will also cost con siderable money. This addition en larges the Sunday School department and connects the chapel building with the main church. A New School House. A new school house on the National Road, just west of Richmond will cost about $4,000. Plans were drawn for it by Architect Kauffman. Mr. Kauff man is also drawing plans for five new churches, some of which are un der course of construction. They are at Logansport, Tipton, Paulding, Ohio, Normandie, Ind., and the First English Lutheran church, in this city. A new ! eight-room school house at Aurora, Ind., for which he is drawing plans, is to cost $20,000. Architect Yates has completed plans for a brick warehouse, 137 by 125 feet, which will be built by the Gaar, Scott Co., in Reglna, Canada. This ware house will enlarge the facilities of the local plant in Canada. Mr. Yates is also making plans for other buildings in different Indiana cities. Judson's Rupe's New Home, The list of houses to be built this summer is large. Judson Rupe will build a new residence in the first block on So. Fourteenth street. The house will have nine rooms, and will cost about $6,000. The first story will be of brick, the second of slate and the roof will be tile. The contract has been . let for the new house of Ben Bart el,-on South 18th street. Burr and Gajner will build this residence. They will com mence work immediately. : Plans have been prepared by Architects Marlatt and Mansfield for a new residence for Charles Harlan. This . house will be built on South 15th street Henry Kluter will build a new house on So. 14th street and Levi Pitman will buijd in Spring Grove. Both sets of plans were prepared by Marlatt and Mans field. Wm. H. Backmeyer has had plans prepared for a new house to be built on the Liberty road, south of the city. The house will be of brick stusse. Architect Hasecoster, who prepared the. plana for the Backmeyer house, BUILDING SO SENSATION IN A DAMAGE SOU Prominent Quaker of Marion is the Defendant in an Un usual Action. HIGHLY RESPECTED MAN. SYLVESTER BOND ACCUSED OF "ENTICING AWAY" THE WIFE OF GEORGE HARDESTY WHO ASKS DAMAGES. Sylvester Bond, of Marlon, a mem' ber of the Indiana Yearly, meeting of Friends, well known to many Rich mond people and who has numerous relatives in Wayne County is the de fendant in a sensational damage suit filed at Marion Saturday by George Hardesty of Marion who demands $5,000 of the defendant for enticing his wife away from him. Sylvester Bond is one of the Grant county's prominent citizens and an active member of the First Friends church. He resides on a farm just east of Marion and is a highly respect ed citizen. It is alleged that George Hardesty was employed by Bond on the farm for seven years an I that dur ing that time he objected to attentions shown to his wife, Myrtle Hardesty The complaint alleges that last month, May, 1906, when the plaintiS and Myrtle Hardesty were living to gether happily as husband and wife the defendant "wrongfully, contriving and intending to injure the plaintiff and to deprive him and his children of her comfort, society and assistance maliciously enticed her away from the plaintiff and her then residence in Grant county to a separate residence unknown to the plaintiff, and has ever since there detained her against the consent of said plaintiff." LOG CABIN HERE TONIGHT LINCOLN'S BIRTH PLACE Historic House Comes Here From Cincinnati Having Been Exhibited There Will Arrive at 7:30 and Re main 20 Minutes. The log cabin in which Abraham Lincoln was born and. in which the young Emancipator spent his boy hood days, will be exhibited in the Pennsylvania Depot in this city for twenty minutes tonight. The cabin will arrive on a flat car at about 7:30. In making the trip from Connecti cut to LouisVille, Ky., from which city the cabin will be taken to the old Lincoln farm, thousands of peo ple have been allowed an opportunity of viewing the old house. The Penn sylvania Lines have moved the car containing the cabin from Pittsburg to Columbus, stopping at wayside stations: Columbus to Cincinnati, and from . Cincinnati it will come here. From Richmond the cabin will go to Indianapolis and there south to Lou isville. - , : : : " . It is expected that several hundred people will be present to see the house in which the famous president first saw the light of day. Large crowds turned out in other cities to see the cabin. has also made plans for a twelve room double hous3, for E. G. Hill." Many other structures will be built, some of them without any plans, and others on old plans. Small frame houses, such as are built by the dozen. are built according to the contractor's fancy, without the aid of plans. FINAL SCORE 79 TO 20 MAGAW, SPANGLER AND HAAS DID THE BURDEN OF WORK FOR THE WINNERS GENNETT CUP AWARDED. Saturday, for the first time in three years, the athletes representing the Freshman class of the high school triumphed over the boys of Garfield in the annual field and track meet. Their victory was so decisive as to rob the meet of the appearance of a con test, the final score being Freshmen, 79, Garfield, 20. The boys of the lower school made creditable showing only in the distance runs. The Gen- nett Cup by this victory returns to the High School after having been two years in possession of Garfield. Magaw, Spangler and Haas did the burden of the work for the Freshmen, and when to this trio is added Al lison (barred from Saturday's meet) it is seen that the High School has a most promising bunch of young athletes coming on. The redeeming feature of the work of the Garfielders was the showing of the sturdy 7 A star, Tom Chapman. He won twelve of the twenty points secured by the grammar School boys, taking one first, two seconds, and one third. His winning of the half mile run in a bruising finish was the most exciting event of the day if we except the special match race of a quarter of a mile between Prof. El labarger and Prof. Torrence and won by the latter in something better than record time. Chapman Is but fourteen years old and bids fair to make one of the best weight and distance men ever turned out by the school.

THE NEW PUIIT Easthaven's Water Works System to Be Put in Op eration Today. HAD ADEQUATE CAPACITY THE STAND PIPE, 115 FEET IN HEIGHTH HOLDS GREAT TANK WITH CAPACITY OF 150,000 GALLONS. A new water works system, cost ing $10,000, completed last week at Easthaven, Monday morning will be put in commission today for the first time. The plant has been under construction for over a year and is one of the best of its kind in any public institution in the state. The old water system was inadequate and it was necessary to build a larger and more modern plant. The main feature is the great tower with its tank holding 150,000 gallons. This standpipe is 115 feet high and is 16 feet in diameter and is substan tially built to sustain great weight. The tank will be kept full of water by a pump drawing from five deep wells. There will be a constant pres sure for all ordinary purposes and in case of emergency, there can be a pressure created capable of resist ing any fire that may occur. There will be a study pressure of 65 pounds to the squara inch, when formerly the pressure was only about 30 lbs. The plant has been tested and found to be satisfactory. This is one of the most . Important improvement; that has been made at the Hospital for several years and in as the Hos pital grows there will be a sufficient water supply without building an ad ditlon to the plant III READINESS Young Hens, tofetew or Roast E2 E3 A Full Market ofpresh Vegetables a S3 We appreciate yo Seasonal Nr4 will give you the best goods on the market at consistent prices.
