"Those who have to do with uncivilized peoples, especially fanatical peoples," he said, "must re member that in such a situation as that which faces you in Egypt weakness, timidity and sentimentality may cause infinitely more harm than violence and injustice. Sentimentality is the most broken reed on which righteousness can lean." To the objector to the use of the word sentimentality Mr. Roosevelt writes: •\pear Sir "1 regard sentiment as the exact an tithesis of sentimentality, and to substi tute sentiment for sentimentality in my speech would directly invert my mean inc.

Mr. Procter's original offer, was mad a [ a little morn than a year aco. He laid ! dt.wn two conditions: Fi'-st. that a shn ilar amount of money should be raised before May 1 of this year, and second, j that a site satisfactory to him should be chosen instead of th<- one which had already been decided upon. He withdrew his offer early in February : after a marked divergence of opinion : over the proposed school had been shown and the whole university policy had be- j come involved in the acceptance. At j that time the university authorities . made public the difficulties; involved, and j Mr. Procter gave the reasons which prompted him to withdraw his gift. Graduate School Plan. Moses Taylor Pyne, chairman of the j graduate school committee of the board | of trustees, issued a statement in behalf J of the university. Be\en years ago. he 5 a plan for a graduate school had ! been proposed and approved by his com- i :nittee and published under the authority j of President Wilson. Later this state ment of the plan was repeatedly reaf j firmed by the president and never que.<- . tioned until Mr. Procter's gift had been accepted, in October. 1909. There never had been any other plan for a graduate school at Prince ton. Mr. Pyne said, and Mr. Procter, who was graduated from j Princeton in 1883, became interested In I the project and entirely unsolicited made his offer of half a million dollars to as- j sist in carrying out the scheme. Whiit j followed Mr. Pyne summed up in these | words: ••From the start his generosity has met j with such an extraordinary reception, his | motives have been so misconstrued, his > patience lias been so sorely tried, that self-respect has at last demanded the , withdrawal of hie princely gift." Mr, Procter wrote to Thomas D. Jones, j chairman of the trustees' committee ap polnted to report to the board what Mr. Procter';-- wishes in the matter were, part foltows: "The reception of my offer by the pres ident and his associates ha-s not been such as to promise the usefulness which I had hoped to secure by my proposed prift. and I therefore beg leave to with draw it." The Big Wyman Gift. I^ess than four months later came the news that Princeton had become prac tically the sole legatee of Isaac C. Wyman, who had been graduated from th' university in 1848. The will set forth that tho gift was made as a memorial of "lasting affection" for his alma* mater He gave almost absolute power to the trustees, one of whom is Dean Andrew F. West of Princeton, to dispose of the estate for the benefit of th> Princeton Graduate School. The will contains the proviso that the estate i*> devoted in whole or in part.

HE'S A REAL AERIAL JESTER Mother Tells About His First Flight with an Umbrella from a Barn. Charles K. Hamilton, the red-hjure4 ready rider of the aeroplane, was in the iiir above a.nd about Mineoia yesterday afternoon a total of thirty-nine minutes, twenty-three and tltrae-fifth seconds, and travelled approximately thirty-rive 1 miles, not counting his numerous drops to within eight and ten feet of earth and trouble. Be made two flights. The first, at 5:40 o'clock, lasted six minutes and 17 sec onds. Th» j s»- wen consumed by the foremost heavier-than-air <-omedian in circling the field, chasing a panic stricken black pup that tried to go fifty miles an hour, diving toward th^> auto mobile spectators in sort) a danng man ner that smelling salts were at a pre mium, in turn, and generally enthrall ing and convulsing th>- crowd as no aviator in the East has ever tried to do. The wind was from the northwest, and was blowing at the rate of ten miles \an hour. Asked about it, Hamilton said : "I didn't know it was here; is it^ I've flown in ■ forty-mile wind in the West." His Mother Sees Flight. His mother had never seen "Charley" fly in an aeroplane, so she came down from Her home at New Britain. Conn-, and listened whil* 1 a lot. of reporters ex plained to her how proud she ought to be of her boy. : . "I've always been proud of him." she said "He's my only child, and I've al ways felt he was a rising son." •'When did he first evince an interest in aeronautics?" she was asked. "When his first tooth cam*? I think,** she replied. And when he was nine years old be made his first descent from our barn, carrying ray best umbrella as a parachute. The ribs of the umbrella were stout or his neck might have been broken. I've never used the umbrella since: its still inside out. I think" more of it than Charley does of his aeroplane" "Do you think your son has any sense of fear?" "I don't think so. and I believe he got some of that from his mother. I have never known fear myself." The aviator's wife was also' present yesterday. She. said she never "was afraid when her husband flew, but she hated to see him written up in the. news papers as possessing: "a hawklike pro file.' She comes from Bridgeport. Conn. The second flight by Mr. Hamilton was begun about <> o'clock, and lasted 33 min utes and 6 3-5 seconds. During that time the lightweight heavie -than-air expert delivered a straight jab off to the right, and followed it up with a quick left hook, went hack to his corner, and then made an uppercut from the centre of the green arena. He made a feint for the four logs of the horse of Egerton L. Winthrop, jr.. president of the Board of Education, but did not land. Mr. Winthrop's horse saw it was coming and sat down, willing to take the count. Hamilton combines beauty and daring I with hearty laughter, when he flies. i Yesterday, on the last flight, he visited Hicksville and Farmlngdale. five or six miles to the. eastward of Mineola. re turned to the Hempatead plains and cir j cled many times at altitudes of from four hundred to eight hundred feet, un expectedly grazing sheds and telegraph wires; and then started off to thf west ward. where he looked down upon the I church spires of ; Garden City and re ; turned by way of the postofliee at Mm- : ola.
