A committee appointed by the Secretary of the Interior has concluded the work of condemning a quantity of old furniture and flttlngs in the department buildings, and the property thus condemned will be dis posed of at public auction within the course of the next week or ten days. An auction sale of condemned furniture and fittings in the various departments is held annualfy, and in this manner a large quan tity of material which has ceased to be useful in the departments is disposed of. This year the sale at the Interior Depart ment will not be so extensive as it has been in years past, although a considerable quantity of old furniture and lumber will be placed on sale. Some of this lumber was used in shelving in the department, some of which accommodated the records of the land of fice. which have recently been removed from the patent office building to the for mer Post Office department building across the street. New fireproof shelves were put up for the land office records last win ter, and the old shelves in the patent of fice library were replaced by modern fire proof shelving. The lumber that was con tained in these old record and file cases will form a large part of the material placed on sale. Suicides Among Physicians. Froai the Chicago Trltiune. A London d.spatch to the Tribune says that the remarkable Increase of suicides among physicians in England is beginning to attract attention there. The same con ditions exist in this country, but they at tracted attention and provoked comment some time ago by students of sociology, though, as far as we know, no physician has tried to explain why suicides should be more numerous In profession thin in any other. The Tribune's annual roc ords show that since 1891, or in twf.lve years and a half, 511) physicians have com mitted self-murder. It can hardly be said that the number is increasing, but neither Is it materially diminishing. The average for this period is about 41, and this has been exceeded six times, as follows: In 1893. 53; 1894. 45; 1895. 59; 18!W, 47; 1VJ?, 44; 1902. 42. The smallest number was 23 in 1891. The record of 20 in the first sx months of 1903 shows that the average probably will be maintained this year As to the causes of this increase in Eng land the statement of the foreign statisti cian is not altogether convincing, though ft may bear some relation to the subject. He points out that the income of physi cians has depreciated greatly because or the improved health of the country as whi?h\ yw? dimi?ish'ng d?ath rate, from S wurWni In 7hlt th)?i medical profession i v*orKing in these days of nr^vpntit-a therm'"6 t,?.ward its own extinction.

Autopsy Performed by Coroner This Morning?Young M&n Struck by Swiftly Pitched Base Bail. An autopsy was performed this morn ing by Coroner Nevltt, assisted by I>eputy Coroner Glaxebrook. upon the body of Rob ert L. Shannon, the young stenographer of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, who was almost instantly killed about 6 o'clock last evening on the campus of the Georgetown University. At the con clusion of the examination Dr. Nevitt an nounced that Shannon's death was due to cerebral hemorrhage, caused by being struck at the base of the brain by a base ball thrown by G. W. Iddings. also an employe of the telephone company. The coroner regarded the death to have been due to accident and deemed an inquest unnecessary. He ordered the body to be turned over to the young man's family. Up to a late hour this afternoon the funeral arrangements had not been completed. The deceased lived with his parents at 3X9 oth street southwest. Was to Play in Game. A game of base ball had been arranged for last evening between the teams of the telephone company and the Shaw & Berry Company. During the preliminary prac tice G. W. Iddings and C. Ford, the bat tery of the telephone company, were prac ticing back of the home plate. After the innings had been arranged. Shannon, who had been seated on the bleachers, took oft his coat and started out to take his place at second base. As he passed behind Ford Iddings threw what is known as a "wild pitch." of terrific speed. Ford missed the ball and it struck Shannon before he had time to dodge. , The blow made a sound that was heard all over the field. He gave a cry, threw up his- hands and sank to the ground un conscious. Dr. D. B. Johannis of the Emergency Hospital, who is also an em ploye of the telephone - company, was on the field and immediately ran to the aid of the injured man. Dr. F. H. McKean of the Georgetown University Hospital staff was also present on another part of the field, playing in a game between the Dumbarton club and the Bar Association team. Ap preciating that Shannon's condition was serious. Dr. McKean ordered him removed to the university hospital, and he was borne there on the shoulders of several of his friends. After an examination the resi dent physician announced that the young man was dead. The members of both teams were greatly distressed, Iddings. who threw the ball, being completely prostrated, so much so that he had to be given restora tives and sent to his home. Mr. Thomas J. Shannon, the young man's father, who had been notified of the acci dent, arrived shortly after his son's re moval to the hospital and arranged for the transfer of the body to Zurhorst's under taking establishment, where the autopsy was performed this morning. Graduate of High School. Shannon was born In Schoharie county, N. Y.. twenty-two years ago, and has been a resident of the District since 1882. He was graduated from the Business High School In the class of 1900, and while there was captain of Company E, High School Cadets. He was a member of a local Ma sonic lodge, which will have charge of his funeral. He was regarded by his employers and associates in the telephone company as a young man of exceptional promise, of the highest moral standing and Integrity, and was unusually popular.

In all the deeper qualities of character Carlyle was. I Imagine. Immeasurably su perior to his wife, brilliant as she was, and lovable too In many respects. But he neg lected her and caused her much suffering without Intending It or even being con scious of what he was doing. That is, I take It. roughly speaking, the impression which Froude intended to convey and which would be obtained from his writings by an unprejudiced reader. For Froude is no par tisan as bat ween Carlyle and his wife. His account of the couple Is not only honest, but I believe as near the truth of the mat ter 'as biography Is likely ever to attain, especially when concerned with beings so complex as the Carlyles. But the time has surely come when a fairer view should be taken of Froude's own part in the drama. The last words he wrote on the subject, which will shortly be for the first time in the hands of the public, clearly reveal his abiding reverence for the master whom ho is accused of having betrayed. He went to his grave overwhelmed by reproaches which were not less unmerciful than unjust, and he maintained silence, when by speaking a word he could have deff nded himself only at the cost of Carlyle. It is time to drop the notion that to revere the memory of Carlyle Is to execrate the memory of Froude. Their names must be lndlssoiubly connected In the history of literature, and though one was of course a ? far greater writer and thinker than the other, they are equally entitled to be remembered as hon orable and upright men.

"About the first real craving that strikes the unsophisticated American or English man upon his arrival in Damascus is the desire for a Turkish bath right on the spot where the famous bath was originated." said a traveler. "His next decision Is that a New York or a London Turkish bath is about as far ahead of the Damascus arti cle as mother's pies beat the baker's. In view of the eastern origin of these baths I naturally expected to find something of a luxury. "Entering one of the finest baths In the city, I was at first sight much pleased with the general appearance of things. Dog of a Christian that I was. I entered a large open court, in the center of which gushed a splendid fountain, while the scene all about was at first impression one of an oriental fairyland. All around the fountain on raised platforms were combination chair couches upon which orientals were lolling as only orientals can. pome were reclining, some napping, some sipping coffee, some smoking the narghlleh. some chatting, and one was going through the red tape con tortions required by Allah when the ninety nine Moslem prayers are offered. "As if to carry out the fairland Idea, In stead of being conducted to a private room, in conformity with the views of propriety of the western dog of an unbeliever, I was expected to disrobe before the miscella neous audience; also, before the audience in the street whenever the door was opened. My clothes I had to store In a drawer un der my couch. The jAiblicity of the dis robing act was modified somewhat, how ever, by the attendants, who by the usa of towels formed a temporary screen. After this they gave me wooden sandals n Ith high strips fastened to the soles, which con verted them Into a sort of high stilt. 1 saw no use for this coptrlvance excepting to further the chances of freaking my neck. With these stilts on I was taU?n to the 'hot room," where thlw w'fts a temperature not higher than that^of New York city ou a hot summer's night After remaining here some time there, iqa?. .some slight rub bing and a deal of leg jmliiiis and arm Jerking. . 18 , .

Krotn the Lewtston Journal, In spite of the fact that thousands of dollars' worth of timber was being de stroyed, the people of Blaine say that the forest fires on Mars Hill mountain' last week furnished a glorious and awful spec tacle. It was in reality a mountain of lire, the flames roaring In all the fury of a demon. Here and there some monarch ot the forest, all aflame, would be silhouetted for an Instant against the sky. its branches aglow as with rows of tiny lights. Then a gust of wind would cause the flames to leap and tear from limb to limb. Instead of a burning tree. It looked like a huge bonfire, with nothing definite knd distinct except the wild sheet of flame. A leap from this charred, naked tree to another, and then the spectacle would be repeated, with a new victim. On the other side of the moun tain the fire seemed to 'envelop everything, transforming the forest into a monster of destruction, against which man was pow erless. GREW THIS HAIR.
