8850,000 Gift Excluded
From Pinkney Estate
Referee Kules for Niece in
Effort of Other Heirs to
Make Sum an Obligation
' i li ;s J. 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?
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
Suppose, on the other hand, the fund
has to cancel these allotments.

farmers of the Northwest. He thus :
extended the possibilities of wheat
growing far beyond the former climat-1
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
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?

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

>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?

Federal government exercised in this

became Secretary of Agriculture there
were 2,444 employees in the depart?

This increase, involving altogether
larger and larger appropriations, Mr
Wilson ob*.air.I'd on the merits of one

farmers that the Department of Agri?

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

Nary a Wiggle Left in
New 'Methoidst' Dance
Prim and Shimmyless Glide Is
Daneinji Masters' Bid for
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 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."
