CENTnil HALL, Pa., Sept. 1G -Led by
ConBreasman A. Mitchell Pnlmr the
Democratic campaigners reached hero
this morning after completing their tour
of Perry, Juniata and MItflln Counties ,
yesterday. A charge that Senator len- I
roso has violated the corrupt ptactlco act
of the State and nation and a re low of
his opposition In Congress to publicity t
campaign legislation wore tho climatic
points in Congressman Palmer's llnal '
speech at I.ewlstown Inst night.
Mr. Palmer declared that If tho true
cost of Senator Penrose's nomination
were known, including his own expendi
tures and contributions by those to whom
it would mean most for him to bo i-'uctod
to the Senate tho total would bo near
KO.OtiO, although Mr. Penrose admits ex
penditures of only $11,00).
The Pennsylvania Trotealve Union, Mr.
Palmer asserted, was a political com
mlttoo within the plain meaning of tho
corrupt practice act. He said It should
bo compelled legally to glvo an account
of Its disbursements In bennlf of tho
nomination of Senator Penrose.
As Indicating Senator Penrose's opposi
tion to any campaign publicity legislation,
Mr. Palmer referred to the Congressional
Record for July 17. 1811. Here Senator
Penrose Is recorded as "not voting" on
the bill Intended to limit the campaign
expenditures of a sonatorlal candidate to
$10 WO.
Thu campaigners left Hnrrlsburg at
noon yesterday, covering CO mile3 by nu-
tomobtle before they reached Lewistown
inst nmnt. Tney were accompanlod by
C N. 1,'ronby and Robert S Bright, can
didates for Congn-ssman-at-laigo.. To
i.ight the candidates will speak in Lock

How a building Is to bo freed from the

so overpowering that no ono dares enter

two In the I'nlted States furnUhlng dliect
communication with Germany, It ha.s been
practically swamped with work since the
cibles censed operation.
Tho generators infected by the break

facture, there may be much dlilleulty In
repluclng tho destroyed parts so that the

The Senator was shown addressing a
crowd of worklngmen at Homewood, Pa.
He wore his familiar expression of al
leged sincerity, and to those not nc
nunlnted with his political deeds, he
ueorncd to mean all he was saying.
When the plcturo uppeared at the same
thentre last night, It was hissed by tho
chlldwurkert present. It was evident that
they had heard their parents tell how lit
tle Penrose had done for the working
children generally, and so they gave vent
to their disapproval of the senior Sena

The hisses finally turned Into laughter
"mingled with plain criticism which left no
doubt where the children stood. The
management, It Is said, Is considering
removing the picture from the bill.

Man's First Home Was on
Island in Persian Gulf,
According to Translation
by Doctor Langdon.
Tho Garden of Eden, homo of Adam
and Eve, was situated on tho Island of
Dllmun In tho Gulf of Persia Instead of
Mesopotamia, In tho valley of tho Tiirri.,
and tho Euphrates, according to tho reve
, lotions In Nippur tablets mado by Dr.
Htepncn juingdon, or Jesus College, Ox.
ford. Ills translation has Just been ro
celved by tho University of Pennsylva
nia and Is published below for tho first
Tho discovery will prove of great In.
terest to theologians, biblical scholars
and Assyrlologtsta and probably will to
suit In a world-wldo controversy which
may causo a complote revision of tin
Book of Genesis.
According to Dr. .Langdon's translation,
Tho Creation, the Flood and tho Fall of
Man are found In his newly discovered
tablets 1300 years' beforo tho tlma of
Moses and 1000 years beforo tho days of
Ezra, who Is believed to bo tho compiler
of most of tho Old Testament as wo now
havo It.
Tho part played by woman In the fall
of man Is missing entirely from the nar
rative of tho tablets. Tho tablets also
contradict tho story of tho creation and
deluge as told In tho Book ot Genesis.
The facta disclosed In the translation
of Dr. Langdon antedate In their result)
all Hebraic llteraturo by moro than 1000
yenrs. Tho original text of tho tablets,
according to Dr, Langdon, was written
by a priest of tho town of Nippur, In
tho valley of tho Euphrates, more than
400 years before Abraham nnd moro t,i.in
1300 years previous to tho departure of
the children of Israel from Egypt.
Dr. Langdon makes tho following com-
ment on tho translation:
"Tho tablet which contains this re
markable account of the early Sumcrlan
theology, concerning the origins of human
culture, has been almost completely re
stored by tho skilful museum author!-
tlcB. Wo have hcru a finely written six
column tablet of about 210 lines, most of
which aro entirely Intact. Written In
liturgical stylo the composition deserves
the rank of an epic, for It handles the
most profound problems which concern
humanity. It begins by describing the
land of primeval bliss, which It locates nt
Dllmun. nn island in tho ""crslan Gulf,
nnd probably connected with the main
land In prehistoric times. In this paradise
dwelt mankind, whom Nlntud, the crea
tress, with tho help of Entll, had created.
In what way Is not said, but the verb cm
ployed In one passago suggests a fashion
ing with the hands ef some sort. From
other passages vve might Infer thnt men
were born as tho natural offspring of
Nlntud and Entll, tho earth god, but
Scm'tlc tradition ns we have It In Baby.
Ionian legends and great historian rep
resents man as fashioned by the gods.
"In Paradise Enkl, the vvator god and
lord of nil wisdom, ruled over mankind
with Ills wife. After a long period Enkl
becamo dissatisfied with mankind be
cause ho did not come unto him, which
I tako It to mean that man did not render
unto the gods the homage due. For thli
reason Enkl Bends the Hood, and frail
men dissolve like tallow In the delu,rc,
but the King of Dllmun and ceitaln
pious ones are summoned to the shoies
of tho river by Nlntud. They embark on
a ship. After the delugo the King i
called Tagtutr, the divine, a mime which
la most probably tcndercil Into Semitic

this Tngtug lives In n garden. Is hlins. If
a gardener, and the wise Hnkl rev iled
unto him wisdom. The Greek hls.toil.ins
too, piescrved this story In the legend "f
Oaunes, who rose from the Persian Uulf
to teach men wisdom In pilmeval tunes,
nnd so Tngtug. us in the Hebrew str.i v of
Noah, plants a gntden, names the nci
nnd plants nnd Is permitted to eat of all
but the Cassia (apple) tree.
"The Cassia In Sumeilnn documents li
the herb of healing, as well as In Semitic
nnd Greek medicine. The le,ren,K hi i
gnrd to It probably tn'd of Its bein,' the
plant which bestowed absolute Immortal
ity. Of this plant Tngtug was not to , it,
for thereby he would attain eternal life.
Minklnd until this time po.esi d -.
treme longevity, but not Immortality.
Tnstug, however, on his own initiative
takes and eats, He Is cursed by Nlntud
nnd becomes a prcv to dlsense and mil
nary mortality. Then In the orlvr nul
Sumerlnn story Noah, the survivor of tho
flood. Is the ono who eats fmm the tr
of life. No woman Is concerned In this
disobedience, which resulted In our less'
of perfect health and countless veins.
"From certain sources which eonnert
tho Cassia with tho serpent and the
curse. I Infer, however, that the Su ner
