Sullivan. ;-.<-- referee, re? ported to the Surrogates' Coy.:-: yester? day his finding that the $850,000 which the late Miss Mary G. Pinkney gave her niece, Mrs. Julia Watt Lawrence, between 1896 and 1908, was intended as a .:i:'t and therefore should not be deducted from Mrs. Lawrence's ?nt-'r ! est in the estate of her aunt. M ss Pinkney inherited the vast area ; of Harlem known as the Watts estate. Shi' h'fi several million dollars. Mrs. i Lawrence was one of the principal 1 eneficiaries under her will. The Unit? ed States Mortgage and Trust Com? pany, trustee under several trusts created by Miss Pinkney, applied to j the Surrogates' Court recently for a; judicial settlement of the estate. Some of the heirs objected to cer? tain apportionments of the income illotted to Mrs. Lawrence, contending that th.' $850,000 which Miss Pinkney gave Mrs. Lawrence in her lifetime constitute! an obligation to the estate and should be regarded as a set-off against the share due Mrs. Lawrence. Referee Sullivan repo 'o? that Mrs. Lawrence did not execute ??? n'ote or any other instrument indicating that she was to repay the money advanced to her by Miss Pinkney and Mr. Sullivi therefore concluded that th'.' payments, were intended as gifts.

' The Tribune Fresh Air Fund Help Rescue the Boys Roys: Roys!! Roys!!! "Please give ua places for boys!" From the East Side romes the plea. On the West Side it finds an echo. It Is urgently repeated across the bridge and cornea hailing down from Hnrlem and the Bronx. All during the last month this is the message which has come singing ; over the telephone wires into the office of The Fresh Air fund from all sec? tions of the city. "You've taken lots of our girl' thank you!" says the wel? fare workers who gather in the "Fresh Airs" for the fund, "but the boys haven't had their share of vacations." Unfortunately, to a certain extent, i this is true. Hut it is true through j no fault or preference on the part of The Tribune Fund. At. its Fresh Air homes and camps the accommodations for 1,100 children are about cquall} divided between the sexes, the girh having only a shade the better of the division. How then is the plea of th? ! welfare workers justified? Unfortunately, again, Johnnie Fresl ! Air, as contrasted with his sister, Susie has a bad reputation among the privat? ! hosts in the country who entertain th? '. "Fresh Airs" that are not accommo ! dated at The Tribune Fund homes an? camps. It is not a reputation he de j serves, for he's usually a mild-man ncred, tractable, lovable lnd, but h has it nevertheless. It's a reputation built mostly upo the widespread, but false, theory tha boys are harder to manage than girh When a kind-hearted prospective cour try host is asked to open her home t a "Fresh Air" forty-nine times out c fifty she says "All right, but send me girl. I'm afraid I couldn't manage boy; he'd run wild and get into a sorts of mischief. I'd be a nervoi wreck by the time he went home." Almost forty-nine times out of fifi she'd be wrong, but there is no pra< tical way of proving that, fact to he The result is that when lists of ii vitations come in from country con mittees they usually specify that abo? fo per cent of the children to be sei must be girls. Of all the thousan? of children sent out for vacations wi' private host3 this summer only negligible number have been boys. Do you believe in boys? You c? prove it. At the Shepherd Knapp Farm, Lite field, Conn., all of the 250 accommod tions are reserved, for boys. They a tilled with boys to-day. Although t summer is drawing to a close the fu: wants to send another 2?0 to t farm next Tuesday. There is th for them to have twelve days ea of vacation and still get back in tii to answer (ho ring; of the school bell ! on September 13. In order to send this crowd of boys the fun?! must raise $1,700 over and above expected receipts by next Mon? day. Will you help th? fund in this; effort, to do partial justice to the boys of the city? j In the faith that you will the fund' began to allot the piareis in the paru i yesterday. If you could have heard j the expressions of gratitude that came over the telephone as each allotment was made you'd help the fund make good. Suppose, on the other hand, the fund has to cancel these allotments. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE TRIBUNE FRESH AIR FUND Previously acknowledged .(63,662.81 v w. Marsh . ! a en i: I,.

James Wilson, Ex-Agriculture Secretary, Dies Man Who Held Cabinet Of? fice for Fifteen Years Passes Away at Iowa Home in 86th Year Was Friend of Farmer Introduced Neu Crops and Developed Forests; Long a Good-Roads Advocate TRAER, Iowa, Aug. 26.--.Tames Wil- [ son, former Secretary of Agriculture, J died to-day at his home here. Funeral ; services will he held to-morrow after noon at two o'clock in the United j Presbyterian Church. "Tama Jim" Wilson, as he was familiarly known, held the record for length of tenure in a Cabinet office. He served under three presidents of diverse temperaments ? McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft?and in the fifteen ; years of his incumbency as Secretary ; of Agriculture a phenomenal agricult- j ural development in this country took j place. He, more than any other man of his time, contributed to this re? markable progress. Introduced New Crops Secretary Wilson introduced into the United States a number of valuable '. crops which hitherto had been sue-' cessful only in other countries. Among . these was Durum wheat, which came to ; yield nearly $30,000,000 ? year to the farmers of the Northwest. He thus : extended the possibilities of wheat growing far beyond the former climat-1 ic limits. Under his administration, the beet sugar industry also was fostered, a ? serum for hog cholera was discovered j the whole country was aroused on the ; subject of tuberculosis in cattle and j the care and handling of milk and oth ; food products was systematized and improved. Sample sections of good roads were built in almost every state ? and communities received instruction as to how to build good rpads with j lecal material. The forests were studied and great advances made toward the conservation of them, al--o in the re-planting of de-! forested areas. Official agricultural literature was developed to the end that departmental bulletins became of great value among the farmers, pres? ented as they were in simple language along practical lines. Mr. Wilson was boni in Ayrshire, Scotland. August 16, 1835, the son of John and Jean (McCosh) Wilson. In 1852 the Wilsons came to America and sel tied in I onni :tic it. In 3 855 they proceeded west to Tama County, Iowa, where the familv entered into the farm life of the Middle West. "Tama Jim" received his schooling in the public schools of Iowa and at Iowa State College. He married Esther Wil? bur, of Iowa, and in 1861 engaged in farming on his own responsibility. f Three Terms in Congress He served in the Iowa Legislature, was Sp< aker during one term, was at various times a regent of the State University of Iowa, a member of ihe Forty-third, Foryt-fourth and Forty eighth congresses, a director of the Agricultural Experiment Station and; professor of agriculture in Iowa Agri < liege. His application of >cii ? ce to agricultural practi :e brought him to such national prominence that President McKinley appointed him Sec- ; rotary of Agriculture March 4. 1897. When Mr. Wilson took office the ag :; ultural development of the c was already remarkable, but in the years during which he was at thi th - leve opment was increased far be? yond the boundaries of natural ; r mise which mere land and work affoi n reasing help Eu Ine ;- wh ich the Federal government exercised in this development ;-: ind cated to some x tent by th fact that when Mr. Wilson became Secretary of Agriculture there were 2,444 employees in the depart? ment, and ?

Opposed Daylight Bill At eighty years of age Mr. W was still erect and vigorous, a man six feet tall, al! hone and muse!". Of the Presbyterian faith he was. as a boy, made familiar with the oid metrical version of the Psalme, from which he .' | ntly quoted in'a quaint way with remarkabl ? efFect. No formalities ever hedged about him, ami the plainest Farmer who vis i office in Washington received the same grasp of the hand and the? ir:!::" courteous attention that he gave hi: as ii '????'. is in official life. The former Secretary issued a state ' to farmers n Sept ember, li' 16, foretelling the ci nsi . . nces of the A tmson eigl I hour bill. The bill, he i ught t ' show, was simply authorizing increased pay tor the railroad men, and i the farmers and shippers were warned . that they would have to pay I creased wages because of t;i" Presi li : t's policy.

Nary a Wiggle Left in New 'Methoidst' Dance Prim and Shimmyless Glide Is Daneinji Masters' Bid for Church Favor A dance so prim and of such puritan? ical steps that even a Methodist could i not offer vigorous objections to it has i been evolved by members of the Amer- : ican National Association of Dancing: Masters, and a committee has been des? ignated to give it a name. The danc? ing masters are holding their annual convention at the Hotei Astor. One designation already has been de? cided upon, but a vote of members will i bo taken to decide whether or not it ; "goes too far." This official title for tho new step is "the Methodist," and according to those responsible for the : dance it is a fitting name, for the dance embodies none of the much - abused features of the "shimmy." It was said at the convention yes? terday that the dance is not a new one in its entirety. It has feaures found in the "pussyfoot glide," and a few which made "El Gato" one of the I terpsichorean classics. It is hoped that it will result in a less rigorous en forcement of the anti-dancing edict of the Methodist Church and that it : will be a forerunner of other dances which will in time find their way into the ecclesiastical white book. 'Chicken Rabbis' Aid Fteht Join Housewives in Move to Reduce Price of Fowl Isidor Korn, business agent of the . Kosher Butchers' Union, announced yesterday that the "chicken rabbis," or kosher chicken killers, ami the kosher butchers would support the boycott which Jewish housewives declared against chickens at present prie- -. The boycott, he said, airea ly h id stalled 2">0 carloads of chickens and the refusal of the "rabbis" and butch? ers to handle the fowl would increase the number. "The housewives are so determined," he said, "that the butchers and 'sch?chtern,' or chicken rabbis, are of the opinion that they must join them so as not to make it appear that they are in any way seeking to prever.* the success of this effort to reduce the price of chickens."
