The H"d Cross headquorters were not notified of Miss Barton's death until late this afternoon, owing to the fact that her home is isolated in the suburbs, Although nh had been In failing health for years ilatb ramo almost without warning. During tho winter she had contracted a (.rere case of pneumonia, which affected lier heart, and it was from this latter trouble that death ensued. t her bedside when she died was her ti'phew, .Stephen Barton of Boston, who ha J been visiting her. (.Urn Harton, whose twenty-three years of office as. president of the Red Cross In thl country ended in 1904, was born in North Oxford, Worcester county, Mass.. on Christmas Day of 1821. Her name w known wherever famine or war or disaster visited the tieoplo of a country, from Armenia to Cuba, from Russia to the United States.

Clarissa Harlowe Rirton was the name by which ehe was christened, but as Clara Barton she has leen known since she left the village of North Oxford. She received the education that the pub lic schools there offered and when she was in years old sho began to teach school. It tiiw been said that she was restless and discontented in the country town and when sho had made enough money to o further with her studies she entered mid wan graduated from the Liberal Institute at Clinton, X. Y. Then she returned to instructing other.. The period of her teaching covered more than ten years t some of Miss Barton's friend believe tha' her decision to undertake relief work among the boldiers At tho time of the civil war came about through an accident. Her brother, who owned ft distillery on the James River, had been captured Federal troops and she was very anx m to get him out of prison. She was imonc the spectators at the reilway - a'lon in Washington when the Mossu . hu!i soldiers who had Iveen wounded v Ital'imore were brought Into town I'l-'end of going to the headquarters of (tf Butler to ask for her brother's relets.- she decided that her arguments viuld have more weight if iho went to h Trout as a nurse. Acting upon tho impulse was one of '.r .I'tributen Sho realized that material "vould have to he provided and she ad vertised in tho papers of Worcester, Mass.. h.v she would receive contributions and i to It perbonally that they were dii 'r'buted. So liberal an answer came to her appeal 'hat it was necessary to secure a ware house in Washington to hold the stores hat were accumulating. The idea of having women go to tho front was not welcomed bv the official", but she man- nced to go through to tho headquarters of Oen, Butler in Virginia. Thore. first of all, ehe accomplished her brother's release and then started upon tho work '1 which sho had committed herself she continued with the soldiers in Vir ginia almost throughout the war and in 'l Gen.

All about there were marble urns filled with red aaleas. in the centre of each grass plot and facing a table were statues represent ing tho four seasons, and there were alto beds of punsies forming the monogram of IauiIs XVI. and the tieur do lye. l'ainted canvases wete hung around the walls of the ballroom anil it almost seemed as if the beholder could promenade along the simulated paths bordeied with boxwood and statuary, representing ns faithfully us possible those of the actual garden. Home of these were real statues land olheis were painted on the canvas, ' ,"'"llt being particularly realistic. Looking down the vista there was the I great tiiiiiitr.iii with u bed ofai'uleasat its base und throughout the evening this fountain played jets of water on which were thrown coloted lights that continu ally changed The effect was really re markable with its simulation of formal .MI,.,U ,!,, t.,,.,.l .U I ".- i rvin, j , niieii'ii fr hunilred- of yard.

Mr. Martin was not in good voice and his ladamr was quite color les, In the evening ihe subscribers had an opportunity to hear two short operas of widely different characters.
