MRS THAW SPENDS AT LEAST $20,000 THE , EVENINLG -WO.RLD,. .WED.KEftD A Y, - JULY LP, EORSON'S EXF RTS ttu White, Federal Alienist, k Declares It's Safe to K ' Free Harry. THINKS HIM NORMAL. Testimony Causes Surprise Even to Thaw Sympathizers j May Prolong Hearing. (SfxHtl to The Errnlac World.) IWJI1TB PLAINS, N. T., July 10.-No Itttle excitement ai caused during the noon rtcets of the Thaw hearing to day, when a motion picture machine company attempted to get picture of Thaw, his family and those directly con nected with the trial. As soon as coun sel for Thaw ?aw the camera placed so a to catch the prisoner as he came out of the courthouso he threw Thaw back Into the hullOlng and attempted to splr. it him through a rear entrance. Here Thaw was again confronted by the pic ture men, and with the prisoner keeper he started on the run for Jail. However th photograph company waa uocessful In getting pictures of. Mrs. Mary C. Thaw, the Countess of Yar mouth, Justice Keogh, Attorney Jerome and Attorney Shcarn as they were leav ing the court. Dr. William A. White, a Federal nllen lit, resumed tho stand when court waa reopened and his cross-examination was taken up by Mr. Jerome. The former District-Attorney used every art In his attempt to break down the alienist's testimony with but little success. The Government expert was even more emphatic on cross-examination than on the direct In his assertion that Thaw Is sane and normal, so far as his freedom from the taint of Incanlty Is concerned. "Do .you think that It was normal for Thaw, a man of thirty-six, to draw pic turespictures of nude women being beaten?" asked Jerome. "I see nothing abnormal about It," stated the doctor. REGARD WHITE TE8TIMONY AS AID TO THAW. Taking the alienist's testimony at tho trial Jerome attempted to prove dlscrer ancles between that nnd his present evl dence. He failed to accomplish this, however, and'when Dr. White waa tnlt en on redirect by 'Mr. Shearn It wns whispered about that his testimony had done more to aid Thaw's flght for free dam than that of any other witness. That Mrs. Mary C. Thaw will spend at least IM.WO for the testimony of al ienists before this hearing Is completed waa evidenced by Dr. White's statement that he Is receiving 1 250 a day and ex peases for his services. Dr. White has been here twelve days, so that ho has already recolved more than t,uw. Adding to this fflie fees of Dr. Frederick .Mills and Dr. Adolph Meyer, who have been hr throughout the trial, and It Is evl- i dent that the final bill for this expert1 testimony will ahow over JM.OCni. j Dr. White's last statement on direct examination waa a reiteration of hi flrat: "X think Thaw Js sano and that It would not be dangerous to the public Mfety If he were released." Jtr. Jerome first took up the Delmas letter and newspaper clippings with notations wrlten by Thaw, asking Dr. White if he thought the notations wero coherent and indicative of the sanity of ic writer. "I do," answered the doctor. A chuckle from Mr. Jerome caused Mr. Shearn to request: "Stenographer, please note that at this point Mr. Jo. rorae laughed." "Do you think those writings are the writings of a sane man?" asked Jerome. "Under the circumstances I think they are normal," was tho answer. Jerome then read a notation la which Thaw wrote that the bequests In the codicil of his will would save many young American girls. "And do you mean that you think that Is a sane statement?" Certainly," answered the doctor; "the bequests, if carried out, would have broken up the practices of White." "And aave the aouls of young Ameri can girls?" Tei." "Baaing your opinion on the docu mentary evidence In this case and your observations and examinations of Thaw what Is your opinion as to his present mental condition?" was one of Mr fihearn's first questions. "My opinion Is unequivocal; he is an." Asked to define the term Injantty, the alienist, who Is head of the Federal asylum for the lniane at Washington tated that it Is a social term denoting a departure from ths normal. "And la there any deviation from the normal to be noticed In Thaw?" "Absolutely none," aawered the phyjl dan. "Do you believe, doctor, that It would be dangerous to give Thaw his liberty?" asked Mr. Shearn. CALLS THAW'S RELEASE NO MENACE. INo." testified the alienist, "I do not think It would bo dangerous to him, nor would his release prove a menace to the peace and safety of Iho public." This positive testimony coming from ,t Government authority was a .iiirprlST lo even the heartiest iy.'npathl?era with Thaw, who had not ven hopfd trrit he waa to be so positive In his oppjsltlor. to the State's alienists, Dr. Flint and J)r. BtacDonald. "Is It not true that the first suspicions of those suffering from paranoia are general and vague?" "Most likely. They are not very spe dflo during tho period of Incubation," waa the answer. "Are not tho delusions of a paranoiac tt the patUnt'i own making?'' , "Tkty ire tn product of hit own dli- ' I f& ANALYSIS OF THF NFW VORk' .IOMMMV tfn tr-m a - - ... v mm ww -m- w II II 1 SQr- & Up-to-Date Types of Young Men Scored By the Girls, Who Point With Derision w n Aj u Lnj-vvisjssvvvvvss mmmmm .

DOROTHY ENOLtSlt. YOUNG MEN OF FINE FAMILIES BUT COARSE MANNERS. Here Is another letter from a reader who thinks that the glass of crltlrfim anould be turned for a while upon the young men; pear Madam-I read with a great deal of interest your recent article on tho young women you observed In the vicinity of Broadway and Ono Hundred and Forty-fifth street and their dress. I think If you would stand on or near that corner any evening you would observe a large crowd of freakishly dressed young "men," who make It their headquar ters, and whose chief paatlme It lllrt Ing and annoying every girl or young woman who passes. Their mode of dress Is by far more absurd than the girls you saw, and their actions are a disgrace to the aex. And tho peculiar part Is that they are all sons of "fine families," and some have sisters of their own. If they are the best the "flno families" can produce, then I guess wo will have to turn to the slums for MKN. J. N. OBJECTIONABLE TYPE OF YOUNG MEN IN NEW YORK. Still another letter furnlslios a vivid description of tho objectionable type of young men In New York. There Is no denying that wo have all met him. Dear Madam I have read with Interest your several articles on tne BUbject of the freakish dress of the women of to-day. Howeer, whether you bo right or wrong, 1 should like to point out to you the ridiculous dress of the men of to day. When walking on Ilroadway or any notable street or avenue, one chances to meet what I would trm as up-to-date English Johnnies. Their tight pant and sometimes half way up to their knees, their narrow-shouldered coats, collars thr are almost choking them, their flash ily colored ties and their English sailors sitting back on their necks are what Is termed the latest style for men of to-day. This manner of dress, In my opinion, Is more, ridicu lous and absurd than tho way tn which tho girls of to-day bedeck themselves, II. L. H. REMEDY FOR THE DISEASE OF FREAKISH CLOTHES.

(Man, of course, will be permitted to defend himself. He Is entitled to trial by a Jury of his peers.) WHERE THE MEN COME IN FOR A SCORING. . Dear Madam When a girl gets old and loses hor youthful contour and charm, does not tho man also ane and lose his charm and youth'ul ness? Does he stand still while his wife goes on? On tho contrary. woman generally grows old gracofully than a man. well-preserved woman of fifty rorted by her husband fat. bly on his legj and generally pulling like an engine Is a slcht seen every day, nny place, and supports my statcmont.

X writes 1 Dear Madam: This matter of the "up to date" dress and adornment et the human female Impels and Justine most serious consideration. Person ally, I cannot but view the freakish "get up" of so many of our present day women as ono of the many Indi cations of a distorted or perverted' Imagination, or, rather, In many In stances at least, of an entire lack of Imagination. Is It not In the final analysts a symptom rather than a disease? llelng a medical man, may I be Indulged In attoilptlng the following rather technical treatment of tho subject? DIAGITIIKMIA. Definition A functional disorder of the Imagination or creative faculty of the mind, characterized by weak ness and Inability to form reasonable mental Images of men and things ll accordance with rational standards of truth and beauty, resulting In a total absence of Ideals and, because of a false conception of values, In tho lack of a sense of proportion. Morbid Anatomy The condition Is progressive, and. It neglected, the brain cells of the centres of creative activity may, from non-use or abuse, undergo marked atrophic, sclerotlo or hypertrophic degeneration. Etiology (Cause) Failure to de velop or neglect to preserve a ra tional outlook on life (world view), depth and delicacy In every right feeling and the essentials of good taste In expression and action olther from lack of capacity, laziness, lack of opportunity and educational means or faulty system of training. .Symptoms Freakish getup (of face and dress), silliness, frivolity, coarse ness, self-consciousness, affectation, moods, Irascibility, Vanity, lack of a sense of humor, boldness, coarse attempts at allurement and a pa thetic devotion to that holy trinity of cultural pursuits pleasure rides, lobster palaces and ragtime. Complications l'oor health, sickly appearance, want of vigor and grace, limited knowledge and Judgment of life, vulgarity, moral weakness and general lneltlclency. Sequela (Consequences) Limited A Watchman of Teas Any variation would hurt us more than you. Trust the watchman. CEYLON TEA Double Strength Saves Half. White Rom Coffo, 3 Pound Tint, $1 usefulness, limited enjoyment, criti cism, ridicule. Insult, economlo and emotional dependence. Incomplete ' living. Prognosis (outcome): Iteadlly cor rected and completely cured In the young by proper course of cultural training. In more advanced casee treatment must bo especially vigor ous; however, hope of benefit and even cure may lie held out if patient frankly acknowledges her condition and conscientiously strives for Im provement under proper guidance. Little can be done for the old and chronic cases, association or close contact with whom should be avoid ed because of the disagreeable and depressing effect exercised upon the feelings of normally constituted In dividuals. Treatmont Treatment must be di rected to the cultivation of a love and revcrenco for tho beautiful and truo In life and nature. This can be accomplished by tho serious study of nature; her system of laws In Immu table operation; her many perfect types of animate and Inani mate thirds. Ily reflecting upon and striving to emulate the noble women In the world's history; by Indulg ing tho fancy In picturing them as they must have been and lived to rise above tho petty, mean common place tendencies of their times. Ily feasting on man's creations In I.ltera turo and Art-the pictures his m agination has created and his hand has drawn with pen and brush or molded Into symbolic shape; the sto rlc.i told, the songs sung, tho truths taught, tho lessons diduced, the Meals evolved. By association with educated, refined, clever, serious minded people and by keepl.ig ever In mind and striving to attain and live In conformity with rational ldoa!sv of personal excellence and complete living.
