INAUGURATED A SCARE. A- Xisquoted Word Caused a Prompt Investigation by a School Teacher. Very frequently the homely old adage Behold how great a fire a little flame kindleth" is Illustrated. The latest exempli fication of the proverb that came to the knowledge of the Star reporter was devel oped by the remark of one of the little girl pupils in a school located in the north western part of the city. This young lady one day last week, upon lwtr arrival at the temple of learning where ir, she daily drinks from the fountain of knowledge, informed a group of her friends andI classmates that they had the scarlet fever at her house; that Miss Irene (men tioning a young woman's name) had given it to her brother, and it was on his birth day. too, she explained. Of course it was not long before this startling piece of news was communicated to the teacher, who energetically began a work of investigation. She questioned the scholar, who repeated to her that her berother had the scarlet fever, and that he got it from the young lady she had pre viously' referred to. In less time than It takes to write it the child was sent home with a note to her mother and in very short order returned, her parent with her, who explained that among several gifts mad.e to her son on the anniversary of his lirt-Ih-the day previous-was a fine edi t ion of that Hawthorne masterpiece, "The Scarlet Letter." The' little girl had got things mixed up, and the mother's, explanation cleared away a he'avy cloud of apprehension. Incurs a Heavy line. Amos Brown, colored, was before Judge S.-ott In the Police Court this morning upon a charge of carrying a concealed weapon and attempting to use same, and after the evidence had been heard fines aggregating Pi100 were entered, with the alternative of 210) days on the farm. Brown, so It was alleged, arrived at his home last evening and because some mem her of his family made a remark that he dlid not consider proper, he promptly drew a razor and had It poised in the air prepara tory to slashing when the police arrived upon the scene and sent him to the third precinct station.

Emery presented today to the Emery School, named for the former mayor, a c::binet containing a collection of samples Df the building stones and marbles used in the public buildings df Washington. The prerentation was made at the close of the patriotic exercises at the school by Mr. W. V. Cox, president of the Board of Trade, who said: "I stated at the time of the dedication of the Emery School building that the family of Mr. Emery would present to the school a cabinet of useful specimens. Although death has taken from us the good wife of the noble man for whom this building is named, I desire in behalf of those who re main to redeem that pledge and now formally present to this school a cabi net and collection of the building stones and marbles used in the con struction and decoration of the pub lic buildings at the national capitaL. I be lieve this is the first time so extensive and systematic a collection of this character1 has been made, and it was only possible at this time through the enthusiastic "co aperation and advice of Dr. George P. Mer rill, head ctirator of the department of geology in the United States National Mu seum, an authority on this subject. We feel, therefore, that the collection is a valuable one,. and that the selecting, shap ing, polishing, installing and labeling are ::orrect and of practical and scientific value. It Is the wish of the donors that these specimens shall be the means of stimulat ing some of you pupils to a special study of this important subject. Incidentally, we hope that this cabinet may recall the name of Matthew G1. Emery, who as architect and builder, business man and mayor, ac ::cmplished so much In the developing of eur beloved city of Washington. I also present to your library a memorial of his useful life." The cabinet referred to is of Flemish oak and contains the following specimens of building stones and marbles: Granite from Concord, N. H.: Congressional Library.

VmNON ULBCTRIC LIN , Inspection Due to Interest in Eecn Qrder for Ijuprovement of Servioe-an1 parna. Special Correspideace of The Evening Star. ALEXANDRIA, Va., February 21, 105. Members of the Alexandria and Wash ington Commuters' Association and other patrons of the Washington. Alexandria and Mt. Vernon electric road are understood to be maintaining a .'elose scrutiny on the rolling stock and tracks of the,. line be. tweeir hdi-e and Washington. and are keep ing themselves informed, as far as possible, in regard to th general management of the road. with a- view of ascertaining what steps the company will take to comply with the mandates of the state corporation com mission. The second order in the series entered by the commission reauired the company to install on six of its motor cars used between Washington and Alexandria proper modern heating apparatus. It was ordered that this should -be done within fifteen days from February .9, the time limit egpiring. therefore. next Friday. It Is not generally known what efforts, if any. have been made by the company up to the present to comply with this -requirement, but the general complaints of the passen gers of the suffering experienced on cold cars. traveling often at a creeping pace, have decreazed in volume and bitterness only with the advent of warmer weather. The reappearance on the- lin6 of car No. 15. the only comparatively new motor in operation, has probably helped the schedule to some extent, at least during the continu ance of the mild weather. This motor has been in the shops -for repairs for some time. Crew and Passengers Injured. The ditching of the engine and front coaches of east-bound' passenger train No. 214 on the Southern road at Front Royal yesterday, as stated in The Star, restalted In the injuring of 19ngineer William Moore and Fireman Nat Thornton, the latter col ored, of this city: Among the passengers, Edward Mitchell and C. M. Chilles of Stras burg were severely hurt and others were badly shaken up. Engineer. Moore was brought here yes terday afternoon and conveyed to the Alex andria Hospital. One arei was dislocated, his limbs were scalded and his face was bruised. Thornton's face was cut and his body was burned in several places. Chlids sustained an injury to one of his legs, which is probably not serious, but Mitchell was hurt in the back, and It was feared that he had suffered some Internal injury. Two cars and an engine were demolished. The train was running at the rate of fif teen miles an hour when the engine left the track. The engineer, who was making his first run on that branch, jumped. The firearan was found buried under the tender and coal, from which position he was extri cated with difficulty. General Matters. An amateur performance of "Ten Nights in a Barroom," given in the Opera House last evening for the benefit of Mr. Wayne Byers, who has been an invalid for some years, was witnessed by a large audience. In the assemblage were several members of the Columbia, Typographical Union of Washington, to which organization Mr. By ers belongs. The performance was highly creditable to each of the several people who took part. and the acting was inter spersed with hearty applause. Excited cries Issuing from the residence of Mr. John Nalls on King street last night about 10 o'clock attracted the attention of the neighbors and resulted in the sending of a telephone message to police headquar ters for assistance. Offlcer Henderson. who responded, found the occupants of the resi denep looking for a burglar, who, it was tbougbt, had entereA the building. Officer Henderson was Informed that a man had been heard walking-about in'the lower part of the house, but a careful search showed that the intruder had escaped. In the police court this morning Nathan Phillips, colored, was before Justice Caton on the charge of being a suspicious charac ter. This was the charge which led to his arrest, but later It was changed to that of carrying concealed weapons, for which he was fined $'.. In default of payment he will spend forty-five days in the city jaU. Funeral services over the remains of Mr. John Nugent. whose death occurred Sun day night, took place this morning at 9 o'clock at his late rsidence, 1011 Duke street. Later mass was said at St. Mary's Catholic Church. Interment took place in St. Mary's Catholic cemetery. Rev. Father H. J. Cutler conducted the services, which were attended by many relatives and friends of Mr. Nugent. Ws Annetta Whitcomb and Mr.. James Bayne were quietly married yesterday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Rev. Father H. J. Cutler officiating. Acting Coroner Kirby of Fairfax county issued a certificate of .ccidental death in the case of the unknown colored man whose body was found Saturday night be side the railroad track a few miles west of this city, and the remains were interred this afternoon. Mrs. Annie Caldwel'. vife of I. W: Cald well, died this morning at the home of her sister. Mrs. Emma Laycock, 1412 Duke street. The funeral will take place from Mrs. Laycock's home Thursday afternoon at 3 o'cloel% MR. WEST'S ADDEESS. District Commissioner at Mcainley Manual Traning School. The exercises at the McKinley Manual rraining School today in commemoration af Washington's birthday anniversary were presided over by Mr. S. W. Wood ward and the address was delivered by Lommissioner West. Mr. West's topic was the steady development of the hu nan race toward liberty, and he de .cribedi entertainingly not only the great novements toward independence in the past, but also presented some interesting somparisons betw@! George Washing ~on and the characters in history who, Hke Washington, were Identified with of ports to obtain popular freedom. Mr. West, in beginnilng his address, ana .yzed the Jewish exodus Onder Moses as 1aving been the first great revolution of t people to free themselves from bond tge. The growth of democracy in En 'ope, as shown by the development of the English system of government, together. writh the fact that in nearly every mon trchy there is a popular repre itative body, was also emphasized as demonstrat ng the progress which the race has made a the direction of liberty. After referring ;o the creation of the Swiss confederation ta one of the earliest efforts toward ide sendence, Mr. West dwelt upon the ef 'ect which the American revolution had Ipon other nations, citing the fact that K~oscinsko, the Polish patriot, had served n the revolutionary war under George Washington and had, amid American sur oundinga, become a convert to freedom, mad was thus led to take a commanding part in the effort to separate Poland from Itussia. The effect which the character of Wash ngton and the outcome of the American 'evolution had upon the French people was -eferred to and it was also stated that Bol rar, the great South American natriot, who, more than any one else, enabled the' louth American people to free themselves 'rom the yoke of Spain, had passed through .he United States on his way home from Europe just at the close of our revolution try war and that. unquestion~biy it was usi association with the American patriots which led him to become the apostle cof reedom in his own country. In conclusion. Mr. West pointed out that mf all the ettorts which the wol has meen' for the avancement of human lib.. irty, the most glorious fruition is in the LIited Sitas, whose Influence in scuring ndividual freedom would increase with :oming generations.
