The binders 'for use In The "Waahlnr ion iieraia j-sooKlovers' Contest are growing In favor as the climax ot the competition draws nearer. The conven ience of the binder, mucins It easy for the contestant to assemble his answers to the slxty-flve problems. Is the basis of the popularity of the innovation. The binder Is also economical, and that ad vantage has not escaped the attention of pie contestants; but facility in hand ling; answers to the pictures Is the chief appeal. Nearly every contestant, it is believed, will submit more thqn one answer to each picture, and for that reason It is expected that most of the participants in the competition will use binders. It may be borne In mind, however, that it Is not necessary to use binders to be eligible In the contest. They are merely for convenience. The advantage of submitting more than one answer to each problem is apparent, for more than one answer to a picture may seem to the contestant to be ap propriate and logical. Where the con testant is in doubt which answer to sub mit, he would do well to submit both. Five answers for each picture are al lowed, and it is anticipated some con testants will make use of all Ave an swers for each of the slxty-flve prob lems. The first prize offered contestants Is a line building lot In Handle Highlands, valued at ROOO. The second prize Is a Kingsbury lnner- piayer piano valued at Jiso. The Instru ment, one of standard make. Is on exhi bition at the store of the Percy S. Fos ter Piano Company, 1330 G Street North' west The third prize Is a 500 library of books from Brentano's. Twelfth and F Streets Northwest. The winner of this prize will be entitled to the privilege of making changes In the selection of books recommended by the Brentano manager. For consolation prizes cash awards ag gregating JSO are offered In the form of credits at the Citizens' Savings Bank.

The long-drawn howl of a timber wolf shattered the soli tude which comes at nightfall In the Zoological Park In the Bronx. There came a chorus of howls and then silence. After an Interval came another bowl. this so low that heard 'at a distance It s 'undt-d like the echo of a moan, and this Ian sound was more melodious than the first a sort of Ideal wolf call to the mght Eilghtly soprano and rising must- all, note upon note. This last call was not the cry of a wolf. It came from a phonograph hidden near the wolf cages, and was a demonstration yf an experiment that is being conducted b. a student of animals to prove that the calls of wild animals can be made more musical, in other Mortis, that voice culture is possible among animals. Ra1 mond L. Ditmars. the curator of the zoo is enthusiastic over this experiment, as he is oer the oddities in the zoo which from time to time, find their way Int.' print Mr. Ditmars Is of the opinion that already the wolves can howl more in harmony and In key than they could b. for the phonograph, and the scientist began to teach them the way to reach l.igh C gracefully. To the untrained ear, however, the howls remain as unmusical as the were in the nights before the experiment began. Mr D.tmars did not give the name of the s tentlst who Is demonstrating hil theory, and he offered no Information regarding the identity of the person or animal who gave forth the melodious wolf, all of which Is now recorded on the phonograph and let off at Intervals to frighten staid, homegoing Bronxltes. He admitted It was not a record of Caruso s voice The new wolf call Is bad enough, but It is certainly an im provement upon the call given out by the untrained wolf voice. Eleven CongregaUonallsU, ten Dis ciples,' four Methodists; one Universal 1st. and one Gregorian make up the class of 1913 that was graduated from Yale Divinity School recently. Dean Brown's first year has proven a very successful one and the outlook for Yale Divinity Is said to be most encouraging. Kev. Charles E. Jefferson, pastor of Broadway ' Congregational Tabernacle, New York, has been given an eight months' vacation. With Mrs. Jefferson' he plans to tour the British Isles and visit Egypt and the Orient. Rev. It. 8. MacArthur, president of the Baptist World Alliance, and acting pas tor of the Baptist Tabernacle. Atlanta, Go., will preach the dedication sermon at Ivemont, New York City, June 26, of the new Baptist church bunt by bis son. Rev. Kenneth MacArthur, pastor. Owing, it Is said, to some apprehen sion lest the Federal Council should take too active a part Iti politics, the South ern Presbyterians, numbering nearly. 300,000 communicants, withdrew last year from affiliation with the Federal coun cil. At their recent assembly these Southern Presbyterians reversed the ac tion of a year ago and became again connected with this clearing house of all the ' churches, with which thirty-three evangelical denominations are now af filiated. The machine, the police, and the vice question. It Is said, have been for years Intimately related In Philadelphia's mu nicipal government, and a careful policy Is needed to dissociate them. Mayor Blankenburg has now appointed, after patient consultation, a vice commission of representative clergymen, lawyers, and business men. not one of whom' Is Identified with professional reform as re gards this particular evIL It will be a quiet, nonspectacular, businesslike diag nosis of th whole situation, with spe cific measures to be proposed to city councils. Dramatic raids on suspected houses and the appeal for segregation advanced by certain reformers, are be ing tabooed as reform measures. The Presbyterian Church has Just cele brated the twenty-fifth anniversary of Its Sabbath school missionary work. The recent general assembly at Louisville requested all Its schools to make this a specialty as far as possible. Rev. Alexander Henry, of Philadelphia, secre tary of Its Sabbath -School Board, points out that millions are expended annually for the secular education of children, while this board Is the only agency of the Presbyterian Church providing for their religious education. Presbyterians In twenty-live years have advanced from 5,711 schools In 18ST, to nearly 10,000 in 191!. and the membership from 775.- 43 to 1,300,000. They have organized 31.000 schools In these twenty-five years and gathered 1.300,000 Into them. Churches have developed to the number of 1.500 and special Sabbath school mis sionaries have gone from fourteen to 121 now in service. Twenty-two colporteurs are constantly visiting foreign settle ments and the Young People's Society an allied organization, co-operates In the whole business.

The service was reminiscent In charac ter, Mrs. Moore, of the Church of the Covenant, who attended Sunday school in this original church of Prlsbyterlanlsm In Washington, and who was baptized and married In the present Frist Presby terian Church, was present, and told very Interesting and amusing reminiscences. Dr. MacLeod and Elder Sargent delivered addresses, emphasizing the conspicuous events lc the history of the church, and the prominent persons who have been worshipers In the church. Mrs. Barnett, Mr. Preston, Mr. Dubois, and others recited many Interesting reminiscences of the church life during the last cen tury.

The annual picnic of the Sunday school and church at Glen Echo yesterday, was an occasion of much enjoyment to old and young alike. The lawn fete and social of the Little Light Bearers was an Interesting affair. A nice little sum was cleared for mission work. The country excursion and picnic of the Travel Club, May 30, having been so en joyable to those participating, a similar picnic will be held on July 4. BAPTIST CHURCHES PLANNING ACTIVE SUMMER SCHEDULE TO DELIVER LECTURE. Mlaa Italia Garibaldi Will Speak at 3IctroioIItnn 31. U. Charcli. One of the most Interesting visitors to the National Capital this week Is Miss Italia Garibaldi, of Rome. Italy, grand daughter of Gen. Garibaldi, the. great Italian liberator.

Bishop Thirkield will also speak Miss Garibaldi was n delegate from Rome to the recent general con ferenc3 of the Methodist Episcopal unurcn, at Minneapolis. Sunday Music at Chevy Chase Lake, Large crowds ride out to Chevy Chase Lake Sunday, as well as other evenings, to hear the Marine Band musicians per form. Programmes of extra length are rendered, and the hundreds of rustic seats about the music shell are well rilled. In event of rain the musicians perform in the pavilion, which Is spa. nous enough to afford shelter for quite a number. Dancing Is on the card every week-day evening, and can be named as the most popular attraction, without fear of contradiction. Bizarre terpslchorean displays are barred by the management, and the straight waltz, Boston and two-step can be tripped without fear of Interruption from a Turkey-trotting" couple, who want the whole floor New ampng the amusement devices of fered this year at "the lake" Is a large merry-go-round, which has many fea tuies and similar devices that other re sets lack. It Is very popular with pa trons old and young. Chevy Chase trol Ie service Is always adequate for the heaviest traffic. , Milp Engineer Fatally Stricken. Jasper f Clark.

The physicians ascribed his death to heart failure, aggravated by asiuma. coroner weltt issued a cer t.flcate of death from natural causea The- body was taken to Baltimore for ounai. Disciples Honor Dr. Wilfley. Bethapy College, the oldest educational Institution among the Disciples, has been tbo recipient recently of some note worthy gifts which have come from a graduate. A new hall of science with full equipment has been added to the college buildings. Of the same nature Is the gift to the school of agriculture , modern barn which in completeness of detail is said to be excelled by few If any of the similar buildings belonging to the great State universities. This barn stands on the large acreage which belonged to the home place of Alexander Campbell, and these acres are also pre sented to the college, for experimental farming purposes. The buildings which were the home of Thomas and Alexan der Campbell have been separated from the estate and turned over to a "me morial commission, " composed of repre sentative men among the Disciples, who will keep the place in repair and open to visitors. Rev, Earle Wilfley. of the Vermont Atenue Christian Church, Is a member of this commission. The col lege, at Its recent commencement, con ferred upon Rev Wilfley the honorary degree of doctor of laws, and he was also elected a trustee of the Institution. If the size ot attendance at prayer meetings Is, as it Is often said, an In dex of the interest of a church, the out look at Fifth Church Is very bright In deed. The prayer meetings there, says Pastor Briggs, have never been better attended or more Interesting. The pas tor has been giving a series of exposi tions on the book of "Ruth." Next Thursday evening the prayer meeting will be led by Rev. G. W McCuIlough. of Mqunt Tabor Church. Tennallytown. Pastor P. B. Watllngton of Maryland Avenue Church, is also proud of the at tendance at his prayer meetings. "We have almost as large an attendance at our pS-ayer meetings," Pastor Watllng ton says, "as we do at our church serv ices." A similar sense of encouragement Is felt at the Centennial Church, where Pastor -E. Hez Swem conducts every Thursday evening his "Pleasant Hour" a term which Pastor Swem believes to be superior to the more solemn "prayer meeting." With the Idea of keeping open house and all the departments of the church In full blast during the summer, electric fans have been Installed In both the Sunday school room and auditorium of the Fifth Church. Rev. G. R. M. WeHs, Ih. D.. of Bal tlmore. Md.. who will occupy the pulpit of the First Baptist Church, Sixteenth and O Streets, on Sunday, is a graduate of McMaster University. Toronto, and studied theology at Newton Theological Institute, Newton, Msss. He Is Instruc tor In psychology at Oberlln College, and has a graduate degree from Harvard and John Hopkins. A Jewish Contributor of Catholic Scholarships. An interesting gift, or rather the flrst of Die interesting gifts which will total 323.000. has just been made to the Roman Catholic University at Washington, by Dr. Max Pam, a Jewish lawyer, of Chi cago, with a reputation for philanthro pic Interests. He has just forwarded to Cardinal Gibbons the sum of 35,000 to es tablish the flrst of five scholarships, the others to be git en annually during the next four years. The awards are to be made to students making a special In vestigation or present social and eco nomic problems. In his communication which accompanied the gift. Dr. Pam de clared his conviction that our modern arlsls centers around "man's relation to1 man, man's relation to the government, and man's relation to property." He oices his hopes that these scholarships may help to raise up a leadership really qualified to discover ways out. "We hear advanced, from time to time," says Dr. Pam, "new and strange the ories of government. There are some who claim, even at the present hour, that the Constitution has outlived Its usefulness. The people at bottom are right, but they need wise and honest leadership. To avert this latter danger we must have men who are qualified by training and Integrity." To a representative of the Congrega tlonallst Dr. Pam declared that his main Interest was simply the welfare of the human family. Replying to a query with regard to socialism and the evi dent bias against It with which a Cath olic Investigator would probably start, be said his own desire In the studies would be for findings made without bias or prejudice. The term socialism, he leeia. covers as yet so vague an eco nomic sphere that the situation qan well be considered without its complications. National Assembly of Workers with Boys Projected. Y. M. C. A. workers among boys have taken Initial steps toward holding next year the flrst assembly on work for boys. It will be confined to Associa tion workers, but will Include all work ers In North America. The place has not yet been decided upon, but It will be some city In the Central West. The date will be one year hence. This time is selected in part because the triennial gathering of the World's Student Chris tian Federation occurs then, and will bring here from Europe many noted workers among students and boys. The very rapid growth of Association work among boys demands. It Is said, the confing together of experienced lead ers from many sections, and experts who have studied boy life. It Is held that the Men and Religion campaign will soon have spent Its Initial force, and that workers among boys must now take steps to conserve that Interest A unique plan for expense of delegates has been put forth. It is that all delegates pay JI5 whether they come long or short distances. The amount is pooled, and all fare the same. To reduce this sum If possible, appeals are to be made to givers, and whatever Is secured is di vided pro rata. The Association has 98,000 boys In Its membership, of whom 74,000 are using the gymnasiums. About 30,000 boys reg ularly attend Association Bible classes, and 10,000 the educational classes. The latter Is for the most part Industrial and has for Its aim the training of young men and boys unable for finan cial reasons to remain In regular schools. Prof. Moore Leaves City. Prof. I B. Moore. Ph. D., dean of the Teachers" College, Howard University, left the city yesterday afternoon to de liver an address, at Chester, Pa. He will go thence to Hampton Institute.

He suffered at a place called Verulam, some twenty miles from Lon don, and which has since become known as SL Albans, by reason ot the martyr's death. At St Albans a stately cathedral now stands", one of the most stately and Imposing in all England A few years ago. when we were engaged In laying The corner stone-of the new cathedral on Mount St Albans. It was entirely fitting that one of the visiting 'bishops should be the Bishop of St Albans. It re minded alt men who knew anything ot history that this church, which they know in these United States as the Protestant Episcopal, was the same church' which long centuries ago gave its flrst British martyr to die for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. A special meeting of the board of gov ernors ot the Episcopal Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital was carted by direction of the president last Monday evening at S o'clock at the hospital building for the purpose of authorizing the Incumbrance ot the real estate ot the corporation. The incumbrance Is necessary In con nection with the purchase of the prop erty at-Fifteenth and M Streets. Few Institutions of the Episcopal Church have a greater claim on the generous support of Its members than this hospital, which' opens Its doors and offers Its benefits to all alike. Irrespective of race or creed. Rev. Canon Nelms, rector of Ascension Church, Twelfth Street and Massachu setts Avenue, was honored on Wednesday last with the degree of D. D., by St John's College, Annapolis, Md. Canon Nelms was present at the conferring of the degree, which was conferred by the president. Dr. Thomas Fell, on the In struction of the board of trustees In rec ognition of Canon Nelms' most success ful work and general ability. He will hereafter be Dr. Nelms. Dr. 'C. Ernest Smith, rector of St Thomas' Church. Eighteenth Street near Dupont Circle, left Philadelphia Sunday last on the steamship Carthagenlan for Newfoundland. Dr. Ernest Smith began his ministry as n deacon under the Rev. Canon J. M. Noel, rector at Harbor Grace, the second town of Importance In the Island. Canon Noel Is still living and still rector of the same parish, St Paul's, Harbor Grace. Dr. Ernest Smith expects to renew old memories. Before going to Harbor Grace, which Is about fifty miles from St Johns, he will be the guest of the Lord Bishop at Bishop's Court, by whom he has been asked to preach the sermon to tbe synod of the diocese In the stately Gothic Cathedral, one of Sir Gilbert Scott's creations. which has no superior on this side ot the Atlantic. The Church of the Ascension, Massa chusetts Avenue and Twelfth Street, has engaged as director of Its choir Mrs. Charles G. McRoberts, nee Miss Virginia Goodwin. She will begin the work In September. About eight years ago Mrs. McRoberts conducted a most successful volunteer choir of sixty voices at the Ascension, and the parishioners regard her return to them Just as Mr. Kaspar resigned the work as almost providen tial. On Friday eening, June 14, the Bish op of the diocese visited Grace Church, South Washington, for the purpose of administering the apostolic rite ot con firmation. The work there Is under the direction of the rector of the Ascension, but Mr Fred Gunnell, a lay reader from the palish of the Ascension, is in charge and there was every evidence of the fine work which he has done. There were nine candidates confirmed and the congregation was perhaps twice over again as large as at any time In many years before. The volunteer choir rendered excellent work and the Bishop gave a most practical and helpful ad dress. Under Mr. Gunnell's leadership the parish has begun to pay off Its mortgage Indebtedness and a bright fu ture Is Its outlook. Last Sunday the Rev Canon George F. Dudley, rector of St Stephen's Church, Columbia Heights, preached the baccalaureate sermon of the Washing ton College of Music. The service was In St Stephen's Church. The new and stately building, thoroughly churchey In aeign and furnishing, was much ad mired by the graduates and their friends, many of whom had not before worshiped within Its walls. The Washington clerlqus once a year has an out-of-town meeting. This year it was held last Tuesday at 1 o'clock at Beltsville. Prince George County. Md., at the rectory of Rev. C L La Roche, rector of Beltsville. who was host on the occasion. Rev. Canon G. H. McGrew was speaker, his subject being "Things Wrong End In India." Canon McGrew for some years was a college president In India and' therefore well -qualified to treat with a question concerning Indian lite. The year-book ot the Chicago Chris tian Endeavor Union, put out this month. celebrates the. twenty-fifth anniversary ot the organization -of the Chicago Un ion. It Is an attractive pamphlet of over seventy pages and Is of particular Inter est to WashlngtonUvns" 'for two reasons- It describes the accomplishing of much good by and for tbe young people ot Chicago, and It shows -a Washington young man, E. P. Gates, as having a large part in the years work in cm cago and Illinois. lie Is also one of the two editors of the year-book. At Cook County Hospital the endeavorers held five evangelistic services each week and weekly concerts; here they distributed J.SSZ Bibles" and tracts and reported SSS 'conversions. The "Floating Endeavor" department visited sixty boats upon which thirty-two meetings were held and comfort bags, Testaments, and tracts were given.

Many ot the clergy are now planning their vacations, to which the strenuous character of the winter and aprlng work In Washington church circles fully en tities mem. Aione among Washington churches the two principal churches In Georgetown have the excellent plan of worklhg In concert, the same locum te- nens conducting service alternately In each church during the absence of its rector. Considering the depleted charac ter of the congregations durlmr July and August, this arrangement might be ex tended with very satisfactory results. It Is interesting to note that while this Is the slack tlmo of the year for city churches. It is the busiest time Im aginable for the country churches. .The country is generally very run of visitors, and the roads are all good, and conse quently the traveling Is goqd also-all of which Is conduclble to full congregations. The next Red Letter Saints Day ot the church occurs on Monday, when the Na tivity of John the Baptist Is celebrated. Tbe circumstances of the birth of the Baptist being so unrque necessarily gave the Idea of celebrating that event in the round of the church calendar. The spiritual teaching was too Important to bo other than emphasized. Mr. Bernard Carter's death In Balti more has deprived the church of. the services and influence of one of her most gifted and honored sons. He was the father of Bev. George Calvert Carter, until recently rector ot St. Andrew's Church, this city. Few churchmen were better know, a than he, and few church men, too, ave a better Idea ot those great essential principles of tbe church than he. He was a member of old St. Paul's Church, Baltimore, and a member of the vestry of, the same. Twenty-eight persons were confirmed at St, Stephen's Episcopal Church.

The newly developed race war In Cuba and the military operations started be cause of It are affecting adversely the Christian work of the island, especially that part projected and maintained by Americans. The chief Protestant bodies of this country having missions In Cuba are the Baptist North and South, the Episcopal, and the Methodist South. The earliest there, even before the political freedom of the Island, were the Baptist South and th Episcopal. The growth of Protestant work In the Island, among both white and black, has been steady and along educational lines large. Baptist North work was early project ed In Santiago and the extreme east, and supported by Americans through Baptist churches here are a large Bap tist Church In Santiago Itself and sev eral smaller churches In Oriente Prov ince. Attached to the churches are schools, and these schools have been attended by children of both races, usually heretofore without prejudice to either. Reports received by the Baptist Home Mission Society show that chapels at La Maya and at Jorahucca have been burned, not by military forces, but by marauders and malcontents. Bap tists In Eastern Cuba alone have fifty four churches. The Episcopal Church has vtcrk In nearly all parts of the Island, with a cathedral at Hat ana, and a considerable educational system that has headquarters In Guantanamo. BAPTIST.

St. Margaret's Daughters' Congress. Last Saturday and Sunday, June IS and 15. the twenty-third annual conven tion ot the Catholic society known as St Margaret's Daughters was held In New Orleans. The sessions were pre sided over by Archbishop Blenk. of New Orleans. Its honorary spiritual di rector. The members rounded out their year's work by endeavoring to arouse a more general Interest In their society. which they believe to be the Ideal Cath olic laywoman's organization of the world. Pope Leo XIII granted It, June H, ISM, the same Indulgences as were con ferred on the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the greatest ot all Cothollc lay organizations, and In this respect St. Margaret's Daughters stands alone among women's societies. These lndul gences were approved and additional Privileges were granted the members by Pope Plus X on May , IMS. The general objects of the society are the planning, undertaking, financing, and executing of good works, whether charitable, eleemosynary, educational, benevolent, or others of a like character which anywhere are performed under the guidance of the Catholic Church In behalf of humanity, as well as those which the betterment of social, civic, and religious conditions may demand. The members have done a vast deal of good In providing homes for those tem porarily stranded, procuring clothing for the poor, isltlng those . In need of spiritual or material comfort, working In hospitals and other public institu tions, forming branches of the society to work In connection with Juvenile courts, travelers' air associations, and kindred organizations, and engaging In various other good works. There are three grades of member ship active members, passive members. who take no part In the work but con-' tribute funds, and auxiliary members. consisting ot men who aid by contribu tions and who are known as St. Marga ret's Sons. The society Is made un of circles, and these are ot two kinds those doing parish work and those per forming labors of a. general character. Dr. Sumwalt at Hamline.
