S. KANN, SONS <& CO.,' 8th and Market Space, ? Local Y. M, 0. A. Outlines Its Edu cational Work. PLUS FOB JUBILEE CELEBRATION Features of System and Methods of Instruction. OFFICERS AND TEACHERS Never in its history. It is claimed, has the local Young Men's Christian Associa tion begun a winter's work with larger plans and greater promise of successful endeavor. The association is entering upon its fiftieth year, and already the ar rangements for the celebration of its Jubi lee during the coming year are receiving attention. Throughout the past summer the executive officers and the committees have been planning the fall and winter campaign. According to the program outlined the association is to cover more completely than ever this year the field of gym nastics and athletics, upon the grounds that in a city like Washington, where such a large proportion of the men are em ployed in positions involving a sedentary life, the importance of the feature cannot be overestimated. Twenty-three gymna sium classes a week provide the needed opportunities for this sort of training, while opportunities for Individual work and for light ami heavy gymnastics and games are frequent. Wrestling, fencing, running. Jumping, hurdling, pole vaulting, shot put ting, basket ball, volley ball, indoor base ball and military training are among the attractions offered. One of the most val uable features of the gymnasium supervis ion Is the physical examination which is accorded every member by the physical di rector. A chart showing the physical de velopment with a special prescription of exercise is furnished if desired. Phyileal Drpnrtmont. The physical department of the associa tion has an equipment which, it Is be lieved, Is second to none In the country. Its gymnasium is one of the largest and Is especially favored as regards light and ventilation, being located on the top floor of th^ building. The athletic grounds are complete and located In close proximity to the building. These grounds form an especially attractive feature in this climate where the weather permits out-of-door work during nearly three-quarters of the year. The baths and swimming pool are in great demand the year round. A plunge In winter with the water heated to the right degree is as enjoyable and beneficial as a plunge In midsummer. Twenty-two subjects will be taught this year by a corps of eighteen instructors under the supervision of the educational director, Mr. Harry O. Hine. It is a well known fact that the educational depart ment of the Y. M. C. A. does not give an all-round education. It Is not designed as a substitute for the public school, the college or the university. It cannot take their places, but, it is claimed, it does a work that those institutions do not do. It helps men to help themselves; gives them enough education to make them want more: starts them on the road that will lift them to better places in life. The studies to be covered this year by the classes are: Arithmetic, bookkeeping, pen manship. business law. English, spelling, stenography, typewriting, electricity, alge bra. geometry, telegraphy, architectural and mechanical drawing, free-hand draw ing and commercial designing, French. German, Spanish, vocal music, orchestral music, banjo, mandolin and guitar. The association also offers as educational aids the literary society, which meets every Friday evening from October to May, a reading room containing 12J? magazines and periodicals and various lectures and enter j tafnments. An employment bureau is maintained by which students are provided with places j suited to their abilities and needs. Opportunities for Pleiunre. j The association presents many opportu nities for pleasure and profit in the shape of organizations of various kinds within the membership. An orchestra, a banjo, man dolin and guitar club, a chorus, a military company, outing clubs, tennis club, bowl ing league and other organizations are open to those desiring them. Receptions and entertainments, open to the entire membership, and occasionally to outsiders, are a leading feature. A course of lectures is to be provided the membership and the public generally during the coming season. The First Con gregational Church nas tendered the use of its edifice and the entertainments will be presented there. RellKioas Motive mid Aim. All the work of the association is In a sense religious. It is done with religious motive and aim, and Is all the greater In Its effect ofttimes because of its having the form and substance of simple useful ness. The distinctively religious work of the association is, however, paramount in importance, and will receive this year the largest possible attention. Bible classes will be organized to meet the needs and desires of all classes of members, devo tional meetings in the association bulld<ng will be provided and the men of the city will be invited to come every Sunday after noon, from October 13 to May 1, to attend the mass meetings for men in Columbia Theater. Notable speakers from every sec tion of the country will address these meet ings, a well-trained orchestra will lead the singing, and famous soloists will be pres ent as often as practicable. The junior department Is better equipped this year than ever. The boys nave a beau tiful suite of rooms on the third floor, with their own books, pictures and games, while special provision Is made for them as regards gymnasium worn and out-of door amusements. The Force of Worker*. General Secretary Pierce has gathered about him a corps of earnest secretaries, whose training and previous success is a guarantee for the future. Mr. Pierce's own career as an association worker Is well known. He has been e'gV years in the work, filling positions in all its grades and in nearly every section of the country. His successful management of the Trenton association for the past lour years gave him a well-deserved prominence and ho Is counted one of the best general secretaries In the country today. His first assistant, Mr. A. A. Protzman, has filled that position most acceptably for the past three years, acting as general secretary for six months last year. He has direct oversight of a large part of the detail management. The membership secretary. Mr. E. O. Sellers, was formerly general secretary of the association at Macon, <Ja. He brings to his position a combination of personal qualities which fit him admirably for the task of serving the targe and increasing membership of *he Washington associa tion Jnnlori Have a Secretary. The juniors are fortunate in the posses sion for the first tlmo in the history of that department of a secretary all their own. Mr. John V. Hamilton, for several years the junior secretary of the Trenton association, has been recently called to take charge of that branch of the work here. There are more than 200 boys in the Junior department, and this number it is predicted, will be greatly augmented this winter. The educational director, Mr Harry O. Hine, has been associated f ith the educa tional work of the association for many years, and hlB good management of this Important branch makes him a most val uable aid to the general secretary. The physical directors, Mel. B. Rideout and C. E. Beckett, are both well known and well liked by the men of the associa tion. Both have received special trains* for their work and both have had ex perience, Mr. Rideout having served the association In Paris lor four years and Mr. Beckett the west branch in Baltimore for several years. The office secretaries are Messrs. J^P. Athbrook, E. W. Far'.oe and P.

Associated Pre#?. CHRISTIANIA, September 13. ? Last night Dr. Carl Lumholtz, the traveler and explorer, who has been spending the last five years In the hitherto unknown regions of northwestern Mexico in the interests of the American Museum of Natural History of New York, and who is the first white man that has lived among the cave dwell ers in those remote parts, made his first appearance In public since his return to civilization, lecturing before the Geo graphical Society at this place on his Mexican travels and discoveries. The lec ture was held in the hall of the univer sity, and was attended by a large audi ence, among those' present being the Norwegian prime minister and many per sonages of scientific and political promi nence. The lecture bristled with Incidents of the life and travels of Dr. Lumholtz among the wild Indian tribes of Western Sierra Madre. and especially among the cave dwellers, who still live in the same primi tive way as their forefathers, many thou sands of years ago, in these almost inac cessible regions, 8,000 feet above the sea. In order to study these people. Dr. Lum holtz ordered the entire staff of his expedi tion to return and took up his life alone among them. At first the tribes resented his taking up his abode among them, but eventually he gained their confidence and was allowed to remain. He learned their ways, their language and their songs, and Joined In their dances, arid one chief even went so far as to offer him his daughter in marriage. On another occasion he was almost compelled to marry one of the girls belonging to Jhe Cora tribe. This was at the express wish of the girl's family, the only condition named being that he should settle down among the tribe.

There to a report current and believed by many that an in vasion from Corinto has landed at Chame. some twenty or thirty miles from here, yet we get nothing. The presence of our ships at this place and at Colon has had a good effect. So long as they remain there there will not bs any trouble." Mr. Gudger and our other consular of ficers on the isthmus have been instructed to keep the State Department fully advtoed of any important developments in the revo lutionary movement in that section, and the fact that no cable reports have come in this mail dispatch of Mr. Gudger's is taken as evidence that there has been no more fighting and that the revolutionary movement is dwindling away. This view Is also supported by the reports of all the naval offloers down there, a batch of which has just been received at the Navy De partment.
