A new departure in the field of church
work has been taken by the general
conference of Swedish Baptists of
America in establishing a secular school
preparatory for the theological semi
nary of the conference at Morgan Park,
111., or any other college the graduates
prefer to attend. Primarily its pur
pose io to keep the voung people of
the church within the influence of the
denomination "but because the school
is undenominational and the tuition is
merely nominal, it is a splendid oppor

education at small expense.

A FRIGID GENIUS
SIBYL WILBUR, FORMERLY
Sibyl Wilbur, known thru the north-,
west by her work as a Journal writer
several years ago, never known to fal
ter when given most difficult assign
ments and the last member of the staff
to admit defeat, has evidently met her
Assigned by the Boston Herald, by
which she is now employed, to inter
view Mary MacLane, the once famous
writer who emerged frbm oblivion in
Montana again to enter the unknown
in a Massachusetts village near Boston,
Miss Wilbur pitted herself against a
frigid proposition but left the retreat
of the recluse, to all appearances, badly
Mary MacLane now lives with a
companion in the old homestead of
Miss Maria Louise Poole, at Rockland,
a little shoe manufacturing village. To
this place Miss Wilbur went, to be
confronted by a puzzle.
Mary MacLane's entrance into
Rockland was as peculiar as many
other features of her life. Going to
the village without announcement and
recognized from her pictures so pro
fusely circulated at that time, she in
quired for the Poole house. Her cold
demeanor dissipated all thoughts of en
tertainment "befitting her station,"
that may have arisen in the minds of
the residents of the insignificant lit
tle hamlet. Reaching the Poole house,
retired .from a life publicity and her
ability to present the coldest side of
her cold self, has caused the villagers
to cease thought and notice of her and
she now lives, with her companion, a
life of almost complete seclusion.
Only two persons enter the precincts
of this little old home occupied by
the two women. They are Judge Kel
ly, a well known lawyer, and Profes
sor C. Burleigh Collins, professor of
English in the Boston schools. To the
other villagers they are unknown they
solicit no friendship and command
A Chilly Reception.
Miss Wilbur notified Mary MacLane
by letter of her desire for an interview
and appointed the hour when she would
arrive at the old house. Reaching
there, she says, no one responded to
her knock. Later she saw the two
women enter from a side door. She
knocked again. This time Miss Bron
son responded and she was ushered into
the modest little parlor.
Mary MacLane, probably 25 years
old, apparently older, entered the room
and coldly recognized her caller. To
the attempt to make a pleasant if for
mal introduction to an interview Miss
MacLane is reported to have replied*
with a startling abruptness and ri

that amount to anvthing in the first
ten minutes of meeting, unless, indeed,
they are rare souls''I am a rare soul,
but you are not, said the uplifted,
strongly moulded chin.
"And the atmosphere here is an
ideal one, an old house filled with beau
tiful memories. You must enjoy liv
ing here. Do you like old things, Miss
I like this house."
"May I ask if you are engaged in
writing another book?"
The Ice Pitcher Again.
"That is nobody's business," said
tie polite litt le Ataxy HacLane, who
has yearned for sympathy and love in
the story of her life.
"Let us talk about the other book,
then which, of course, is the whole
world's business, that part of the world
that really understood. You speak in
it very much of loneliness. I have been
wondering if the great plains and prai
ries of the west were not responsible
for the soul .misery with which you
filled it, and if coming east to Jive in
a gentler natural environment you have
not changed inwardly in your at

"Why do you bring up that old
"Is it distasteful to you now?"
"No, it is not. It was a great work,
a very great workj but in getting it
published I accomplished a purpose, and
I am not going to discuss it today."
The beautiful cat which had been
in the window on my arrival walked
into the room and jumped on Miss
MacLane's lap. She pushed it petu
lantly aside. In another minute a lit
tle King Charles spaniel ran into the
room and came to the interviewer in
stead of Miss MacLane. Miss Mac
Lane's eyes flashed suddenly, the pur
pils enlarged and the line of her lips
"Do you like dogs?"
Miss MacLane twisted the heavy sil
ver rings on her finger, from which a
purple amethyst of unusual size
gleamed. She was watching her pet
with absorbed attention. She was an
gry about something. Whether because
the dog had not gone to her first or
because it had been put aside by the
caller, it was difficult to tell. But the
anger was like a sudden flame, a flame
icy cold in its effect. She stared hard
at the interviewer and answered never
a word. Her dilating eyes were en
veloping. Suddenly she stood up, tall
and disdainful.^ and laughed an un
pleasant, sardonic laugh.
"Your ten minutes are up," she an
nounced like an executioner. "How

Fridad night, the 13t the
month. Belated pedestrians were fright
ened on their way home last night at
hearing its meows apparently coming
from the clouds. Many had read Poo's
"Black Cat," and their remembrance
of the old story made them take longer
afrd quicker steps.
Saturday morning some tender-hearted
co-eds at the university spied the un
fortunate cat among the topmost
branches. There was immediately a bab
ble tender coaxing intermingled with
words from the wiser ones~as to how to
get the cat down.
But kitty remained. Coaxing didn't
affect her, and she still kept up the un
canny racket. In their desperation the
girls appealed to the Humane society,
but as none of the active members are
steeplejacks they turned the case over
to the police department.
Patrolman Moran oiled up his re
volver and started out to end the busi
ness. He was to shoot the cat, and the
HumaWe society was to give the remains
a respectable burial. Shot after shot
rang out, and a crowd soon gathered to
give advice. But Moran found a wide
difference between a lively cat and a
porch climber, especially in size, and he
abandoned his fruitless target practice.
The case next went to the fire de
partme'rrt. A hook and ladder com
went to the scene, but the old
in which kitty had taken her
position was too high, and the top
bra'n'ches were too frail to hold the
body of a man. Then the fire depart
ment gave it upand kitty still stayed
in the tree.
Back to the police again went the
case, and again Moran was Relegated to
get that cat- This time he took a shot
gun that' would spread shot thru the
whole tree. Along with him went the
Humane society agent with the coffin
Moran aimed carefully, fired, and the
cat came tumbling down at his feet.
For fear the cat might get up' another
tree he emptied the remaining barrel,
and only a small piece of fur remained
for the Humane society.
The question, "How to get a cat out
of a tree,'' has been solved, but Chief
Canterbury and Superintendent Doyle
think of establishing a school to give
instructions in the art in order that the
expense of Buch undertakings in the
future may be reduced to a minimum.
FO STATE SANATORIU
GROUND WILL BE BROKEN BY
STATE BOARD ON CASS LAKE
EARLY NEXT SPRING.
Ground will be broken by the state
board of control early next spring: for a
$50,000 touliatns on Cass lake, near
Walker, for the new state sanatorium
for oonsumptives. A caretaker's house
will be erected this fall, that such an
ofTcial may at once live there to look
after the welfare of the sanitorium
grounds, which were purchased some
time ago. These are on the whole heav
ily timbered with white pine, and a
caretaker by preventing a fire or tres
pass cutting, could save the state con
fid* able rnoney.
It"Is the plan to get the new stata
institution in operation if possible by
late next summer. The building will be
a fireproof structure, contain a large
dining hall, and administrative quar
ters, and accommodations for thirty-six
patients. It is hoped to ultimately have
cottages scattered among the trees in
the vicinity in which to accommodate
patients on the "open air" 'plan, who
may come to the main building for their
meals. Physicians of the state who are
taking a special interest in this new hos
pital, plan to have it occupied by a
number of patients by next fall, that
when the legislature meets the follow
ing January it may be possible to dem
onstrate to that body the great benefits
to be derived from a consumptives' san
torium, and thus have the legislature
see the advisability of making a large
additional appropriation for the erection
of other buildings to extent its scope
The site selected for the building to
be commenced next spring, is on an
elevation of ground which commands a
beautiful view of the waters of Cass
lake and the surrounding timber country.

HUMANE SOCIETY IS CONSIDER-
ING PLAN FOR ASPHYXIATION.
Homeless Oats and 3}ogs Would Be

Much Suffering and Removing a Seri-
-Oas tanks for the asphyxiation of
worthless stray cats, dogs and other do
mestic animals will probably be in
stalled in the animal home of the Min
neapolis Humane society. A number of
citizens interested humanitarian work
have suggested the adoption of this
method of alleviating animal sufter
ing and ridding the city of a decided
nuisance. The plan has met with the
approval of the society officers and
every eftort is being made to raise funds
for putting it into operation.
It is proposed to start with one tank.
It will be air-tight, made of galvanized
iron, eleven "feet long, four feet five
inches wide, and three feet high. It
will be connected with the city gas sup
ply. One large dog or six or seven
smaller animals can be placed in this
tank at one time, the gas turned on and
the prisoners ,sent to an entirely pain
less death. The installation of one tank
will cost about $150.
"There is no doubt but that the
asphyxiation of strav animals is the
most humane method of putting them
and the people they bother out of mis-
ery," said one of the society workers,
today. "^Kheigas tank method has
been tried in many cities and has met
with unvarying success and approval.
"Heretofore we have shot the ani
mals that were suffering or were abso
lutely useless. That system, is costly,
inconvenient and at times barbarous.
We have been in the habit of keeping
many animals that would be better dead.
We cannot afford to provide feed and
a man to take care of them. The gas
death would be much more humane and
much less expensive in the long run.
Once we had a tank' installed there
would be very slight expense.
"All stray cats picked UP would be
advertised. If no one claimed them
and they were not of especial value,
or we could not find gopd homes for
them, we would then give them the
eas treatment and their trouble would
be ended. It would be a great thing
for the city and would rid the streets
of many unpleasant sights and do away
with much suffering."

which was formerly used daily for the
