5 ST. PAUL'S SEXTON SUICIDE IN BELFRY I'liilip Walter, Thlrly-onc Yrnrs With Chapel, Hangs Himself. STOOP OX THE BELLOWS CROWDS GATHER TO SEE MOST WONDERFUL ORCHID Plant Unlike Any Other Is Named for Princess Patricia and Will Be Auctioned Off by Namesake This to Be Carnation Day at Show. T'nt.p O, Waller, who had been exton nf old St. l'Mil'M for thlrty-ons years, hansel himself from the belfry utalrc, nhfrn III body was found yesterday mornltie by his assistant, Paul .Soliaef fir. No one known why h did It, not rvrn I'nul, hl friend of many years. It was chill and forbidding; under the xx.ill.s of the old chaixil when Paul has tennl through Uia tomb lined walks to tlie. door under the belfry. Ha was anxloiw to (fft Inside to the well lighted Mom of the sexton. He unlatched the ilnor and stepped Into the dim In if i lor, where ungainly shadows lay over the empty pews. It was nil famllar to Paul. He raat hardly a glance Into the glooming quiet of the church and then pulled at the orrl that throws the electric swltctt In the loft above. It stuck. '"The thing's Irokcn ngaln," he growled, and leluc tantly began to climb the stairs to the l.rnk room aboxe. Not a cheerful place nt any time is this loft, a place or brick. and hanging bell ropes and ram--hackle stairs leading to the belfry. Imp.itlent to get his tnk over with Paul Jerked open the door, lie took two 'ep In and stopped, for In front of him hanging In the light from the one stained window swung the figure of his friend the ftxton. Dees Into liraeyrd. l'.cil turned and clattered down the stcis and out Into the grave filled yard. In a moment he was banging at the door nf Uin pariah house and awakened the P.ev. George H. Cox, curate, and George t.lttle, one of the building superintend nit. While they drewed he paced tip .nd lo w n before the church, glancing at the window above and not daring to fan- that room alone. After a glance Mr. Cox cnt for the ler, and then went Into the sexton's room, where on a desk they found an enTlipr. containing a key, addressed to th vicar, the new Pr. Montague ucer, and x noto to Paul. It read : "Paul, K't up to Jacque's room and tdl .Mr. Cox to telephone to Thomas P. Itn.n ii." Mr Jacques Is the church organist and to set to his loom one has to iass through tile loft where Walter's body liunc Word was sent to Hroxxn, sexton St. Adieu's Cliutch In Nlnety-tltst lre-t, and one of Walter's oldest friends. Whin he arrived they all went up and wild tit aid of policemen took down the bdy. Thn they saw how waller had killed h ii i self. JU had climbed on top of the organ bellows, and after getting on a piano lol had tlel a sash cord to the stairs alove him. Then he hud kicked over the stool. Ills body hung n.i nlBlil unuet the blc bells he lind rung for so many va is. Xulrldr Mntlrr Mystery. No one knoHS why he did It. Paul s.ild that the afternoon before Walter had come to his ottiee and told Paul to o away, that he would lock up. Paul didn't want to leave, but finally did at .nit ten minutes to 5. That was me ,.iit seen of ihe sexton. He seemed caeerftil. and neither Paul. Brown. Dr. fieer. Mr. Cox nor members of Walter's ami,y can give a reason for his act. He bundled up all his letters and per sonal papers nnd sent them to his wife .i tlflr home. 4812 Hillside avenue, lllcliuioitd Hill, but chore was no note ' exphuiatlon with tlictn.

Ho was my friend ami helner. nil who cheerfully labored arly ami late. He served the church e.l and I have only praise for every-Vr,- iibout th- man save his final act." The I'rlniess Patricia of Connaughti received a decoration yesterday at the Flower Show In the Grand Central Pal ace a beautiful silver medal. With true royal hauteur she made no sign, merely continuing to look marvellously hand some. The Princess Patricia, be It ex plained, Is an orchid, the most wonderful orchid In the world. When Clement Moore of Hackensack, N. J., who grew the orchid, saw how re markable It was and unlike anything ever produced before, he decided to change Its family name of Cattleya to that of Hie distinguished visitor from Canada, who la coming to the Flower Show on its last day next Wednesday, "Canada Uay." In the presence of the real "Princess Pal" the Princess's rlornl namesake will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, the proceeds to go to the Canadian Ited Cross. Its value Is about (1,000, but It Is expected to bring more for the sak& of the war sufferers. The floral Princes. Pat, a pale beauty with a tawny throat, was not on exhibi tion much yesterday, because all the re cent abduction tragedies In the news papers made the show managers ner vous. Hut the orchid Is shown nt times, under guard, over In the orchid corner among Mr. Moore's other and less noted I exhibits. All day yesterday crowds sur rounded the collection, and spoctai in terest was shown In the glase case under which may be sen the orchid In all stages of growth, from the fertilisation of the pollen to the full blown flower. The crowds attending me snow ixere simply Immense, bigger even than on the opening day. All ages came, from tiny tots el n sine to motliers nann nno; gaz ing, fascinated, at Hie wonderful flowers which perhaps their city orei eyes nau never seen before, to old, wrinkled men and" women.

The rose gardens, which are such an attraellVH featuro of tho show, seemed even more perfect than on the day he fore.

"The saner the circus the better It pas," says the programme of the Har nuin & llalley show. The scholarly optimist who wrote the programme ex plains that the poputaco Is a whole lot less bloodthirsty than It was In the daya of Klavlus, and now demands, Instead of exhibitions wherein risk of human life was everything, a "triumph of skill and kindness." This the heirs nnd as signees of tlio late Messrs. Rarnuin and Ualtcy kindly supply. The circus that came back to Madi son Square Garden eslerdny a surer sign of spring than the nesting of the robin, the frogs trilling or the bursting of the first delicate skunk cabliage rrom Its marsh fetters was pronounred sane by a Jury that must have filled every seat, except when everjbody stood up with open mouth the better to swal low the thrills that were popping all oxer the arena most of the time. They tin sav ton that the business manager agrees with tho adjectlverous pro gramme writer about the value of san Ity. Anyway, It Is no longer good form to shoot women from canncm or even tn thrust a man's head into a lion's mouth. lloeor, let nobody believe that the G S O. II. Isn't blKKer and better till season. For example: There's the .v tiling woman who puts a rubber plug In tier mouth and Is hauled up to the rafters. It used to be sufficient to dress her In white tights and let her wind and unwlt.d herself In her suspense while Just ordinary electric light brat iinon her. Hut now she wear n nutter II v nihe and does an angel damn III tie air with the spotlight playing tricks with her fluttering garments, nil In a manner that reminded the old lioys of I.ole Fuller. Girls linns the I'.lrphsnls. Again, three rings used to bo enough f jr the plastic posing of the whito horse In "scenes from the master sculptors, Rut In this year's show there are not only threo ring full nf horse but they are spread over a tngt at either end nf the arena as well, and alt the dlrec Hon of the spectacle Is In the hands nf xntuip women, Mtreoxer, when the high seliool horse perform mere educated heises are not enough, sn In and nut anmng them cirls are dancing. Further, behold the elephant hras band, one of the new animal act that have been added to the circus as a proof nf sanity Gone I" the n ahout -or t It linwd, th that used to chaperon the elephants. Now It's girls In each ring there Is a girl who tses the fawnllkis creatures and makes them do bet- will. Most of the elephants eieiitually march away together, but In the middle ring a croup of them I left. That's the band.
