From London Awwcn. Just as every slave is descended from a king, and every king has a slave among his ancestors, so the very poorest of us is more or less related to possessions which it '? not hard to convince us are wrongiy he.d by others. Every Tamlly has its tradition of this sort, which accounts, perhaps, for the readiness with which any Improbable story is accepted telling of miraculous for tunes suddenly thrown at heirs grown sick with hope deferred. The latest example of this sort cons.sts In a "will" which tumbled from the back of an old picture which Its owners were in duced to believe would bring them property worth ?1,000,000. That is a modest sum in comparison with some which have recently occupied the minds of fortune seekers. Not long ago K.isha Corey of Omaha. Neb., arrived in London, armed, as he thought, with ?'1' v.r.e.ng proof of bis title to the ?W,0Uo.uX) Corey estate, which has been for sixt>-tive yeais In the court of chancery, and con sists of stocks, bonds and gold. In spite of the inosi praiseworthy zeal Mr Corey could make no progress toward the realization of his claim; so he invoked the aid of Mr. Choate, the American am bassador in i-ondon. Mr. Choate took up the matter and wrote to the court of chan eery with the result that he was inform d that'the Corey estate of ?40,000,000 had no existence in fact. Undeterred by so chilling a precedent as the foregoing, there came to England a month or two later Dr. J. P. Blackburn of McKeesport, Pa., to claim certain portions of England once owned by his ancesiois, who had sailed in the good ship Maytlowe.. His researches brought to light coliaterai branches of his family in the old country. They cherished the same traditions vmn himself and clear'iy showed that part of the "family estates had comprised the sue of what is now the prosperous cotton man ufacturing town of Blackburn. Alt?fiel!^ a sum of ?15.000,000 was at stake. All thit *Dr Blackburn was able to achieve was the redemption of his family coat-of-arms from the College of Heralds. 1 he rest of the Blackburn possessions had all been leg.il!> and properly disposed of. and the due or der of succession unimpeachably ooservid. A Michigan lumily had as boot esi3 a chase after a smaller lortur.e, and in the end they had to take criminal proceedings against the man who had Instigated the hunt and caused expenditure of the sum in which they had been involved. Similar re sults attended the -windfall- of a young man who produced a will endowing him with ?40,CCU down and ?10.000 a >ear. On the strength of the forged document he had proceeded liberally to " raise the wind. The Sheffield Millionaire. Another such ruse placed "the richest man In the world" in a felon's cell, where he languishes at this moment. This was James Albert Marston, "the Sheffield mil lionaire," as he was more generally known. At hl? trial for obtaining huge sums of money by false pretenses it was represented that he really believed in the story of Ins having inherited from a deceased unc'.e an estate in Ontario half the size of IrelanJ, upon which were gold and diamfm.i m'nes galore, making him. as the papersset forth at the time, the richest man in the world. He lived in the greatest luxury on the money borrowed on the strength of hi great expectations, kept fast horses wore the richest of garments, boasted of >achts and palaces and royal invitations and went always armed with some half dozen revol ves " In reality he was a draper s assistant earning 30 shillings a week. Now he undergoing three years pi n .1 s< r\iitude. A couple of years ago the Mil' End wor* h.?u'--<' was ringing with the tiding that entertained a millionairess. The heroine >f the story certainly lived up to the ,-ut. T; the chaplain of the institution she pri.tr-t d her "t-iir disposing of fr.5o.U0U In sums such as ?400,000 for two convalescent homes, iEUXUOO for charitable instltut.-ns, e ^ Her bequests were regarded as tona fide and the lady had an innings of luxury and comfort. It all ended in the police court There the lady was called to account for these said luxuries-for which she not paid nor hoped to be able to doso t^^a^^ckM^ kV? ^trrf^UNe accented 1 the documents as genuine unHl tlve months ago, when it was discovered that t! e: p tential millionaire was the ; s s tsrsjsi rsJ'S-va In answer to an advertisement sold all that he had in order to come from .Australia to England to claim ?40,000, whicn, it was announced, had been bequeathed to him by his I nele Holland." The matter cam into the courts, when it was proved tnat there existed neither will nor thousands. The poor old man was now absolutely dest - Uite and only through the exercise of pri vate philanthropy was he able to collect sufficient money to carry him back to the land which he had left to claim the for tune declared to be rightly his. Wills Long Lost. Of course, wills do turn up in out of the way places, and bring about startling cli maxes In the lives of unsuspected legatees. One nobleman's will lay hidden for years In ti e leg of a bedstead: another came to light years after the ship Schiller, in which ? t was being carried from New Zealand to England, foundered off the Sciily Isles Yet another last testament was discovered en tered among the ordinary Items of a day ledger?a place in which it was as little suspected to exist as that which came in spirits from Egypt, to prevent the spread of the plague raging in the district where the will had been drafted. The late Duke of Sutherland left ovei fourscore of wills: while the one and only instrument settling the affairs of the late l.ord t'heylesmore was stolen by a bag gage thief on the railway. Post mortem tangles often result froan the caprice of the testator. This happened to be the case of a wealthy IJverpool mer chant recently deceased. It was known that everything that he possessed at deatli would go to his only son, with whom he had not been for years on good terms. When the will was sought it could not be found for a long time. At last it turned up accidentally, hidden In a Bible. Sur prise succeeded surprise. The testator had left his "all" to his son, but that repre sented nothing but a little furniture and loose cash in the dead man's pockets. He had secretly dispo!<ed of all ills wealth dur ing the last years of his life. That was his way of preventing his unloved son squandi ring the fortune which the father had worked so hard to accumulate. The seireh of this disappointed legatee for his phantom fortune was no more futile than that which is every day being con ducted whe? the legatee, and not him that bequeaths, is the one In whose bon net the bee buzzes. KINDNESS TO ANIMALS. Now Being Taught to Philadelphia School Children. From the New York Tribune. Inspired by Gov. Pennypacker, the some what eccentric executive head of the Key stone state, the school teachers of Philadel phia are organizing "kindness to animal" classes, and are teaching the boys and girls under their care to regard cats, dogs and horses as creatures to be ministered to by superior beings of the two-legged variety. This teaching is diametrically opposed to the ideas of the boy half of the school world, which has always regarded a stray dog or a suffering cat as legitimate game ar.d a heaven-sent target for any handy mis ;siie By degrees, however, this deeply rooted idea is being eliminated from the minds of the school boys of Philadelphia, and in Its place is being planted a Good Samaritan feeling toward domestic pets of ail kinds. It does not take long for a new Idea to get possession of the active mind of youth, if it is fostered in the right way, and already bands of boys may be seen searching the alleyways and vacant lots In the vicinity of t.he public schools of (he QuuKer city In search of not a trembling victim of their unerring aim, but a cat or dog that is in fit condition to be transported to the school house for care and attention from the Kind ness to Animal Accident Brigade. The boys and girls are being taught how to handle a wounded or sick kitten or a stray dog that has tried conclusions with a trolley car and come off the worse for It. If a doormat can be procured, the Kindness to Animals boys or girls are told to use this to carry the animal to the relief station. If no mat ts obtainable, then the boys or girls Improvise a stretcher by using their coats or a piece of burlap nailed to two broom handles. The teachers are appealed to when the sick or injured animal Is brought to the school house, and usually a session is held for the purpose of showing the boys and girls how to proceed in relieving the suffer ing of the patient. Frequently it happens that the cat or dog is sultering only from starvation or thirst, and Its troubles are speedily alleviated by a little milk or some provender from the luncheon baskets. If It is injured, however, the boys and girls are shown how to administer first aid to the In jured treatment, and the patient is then sent to the nearest veterinary for expert attention. As a result of this crusade In favor of kindness to animals there have been pro vided Innumerable drinking troughs, at which homeless cats and dogs may assuage their thirst. Outside the houses of the boys and girls who are learning to regard home less cats and dogs as creatures appealing to their sympathy drinking receptacles are now found, and these are filled daily by the members of the family. No cat or dog needs now go thirsty in Philadelphia, and if it will only life up its voice loud enough in protest no animal need lack a square meal. JEV/ISH CONFEDERATES. Monument in Their Honor Suggested by Southerners. From the Baltimore Jewish Comment. A writer to a local paper suggests that the Jewish soldiers of the confederacy ought to be honored with a monument as well as the>se of the federal army, a me meirial to whom was lately unveiled in New York. That there were many Jewish soldiers who served In the southern army is well known, though it is not so well known that, according to a speaker at the memorial exercises held lately at the Jew ish cemetery in Richmond, Va., Gen. Coop er had said that there were between 10,000 and 11MXH) Jews who wore the gray, and this statement was made during the war in explanation of his refusal to grant them leave to observe the fall holidays. The army could not spare such a large number. Ten or twelve thousand may be an exag gerated estimate, but it shows conclusive ly that they were s> numerous that the commanding officer had notice of their numbers. Jews were well scattered through the south during the civil war, and the communities at Richmond,. Charleston and Savannah were quite large for those times. They bore their share of the battle, fought with bravery, died on the field and suffered the loss of their property along with the impoverished of other creeds. There is absolutely no graund for the statement lately made in an illustrated New York weekly in an arti cle telling of the development of the south that the war left all southern people ex cept the Jews poor. In nis address at the meeting in Rich mond John S. Eggleston said that there were twenty-four Jewish staff officers in the confederate army and eleven officers in the navy, and the first surgeon general of the confederate army was a Jew, Gen. David de Leon. So the Jewish soldier of I the south has a right to recognition, and though lie fought lor a lost cause his memory should not be lost, too. It is quite possible that when the records are made up the southern Jewish soldier will have quite as proud a record as Ills brother of the north, whom prominent men took pains lately to honor. Wherever the Jew heard the call for duty he answered, and it is a wonder that in the south, where old-time loyalty and consideration still hold sway, some attempt has not been made to do justice to the memory of those men who took the field at the call of their state. Bombs. From +he Lancet. When left alone to its natural functions nitrogen pursues a perfectly peaceful course-, but when man succeeds in captur ing it and combining it with other elements it becomes a dire potentiality for evil, as is obvious in the recent events of the war in the far east and in the crime in the streets of Moscow. The love of freedom, so to speak, characteristic of nitrogen, is terri bly exemplified in the explosion of the bomb in which it is imprisoned and bound to other elements. On the slightest provo cation?a spark, a shock, a fuse?the nitro gen suddenly expands from seemingly noth ing, as regards the space which it occupies, into infinity. This is, in reality, what hap pens when dynamite, lyddite or other un stable nitro-compounds explode when hurl ed in shells in warfare and in bombs in desperate attacks on human life. Nitrogen, against its natural disposition, is locked up in an uncongenial space In these com pounds, from which it is set free by very simple means In an enormously expanded gaseous state with deadly effect, returning, in fact, to its normal peaceful mission once more. It is the analogue of the sword and the ploughshare; in the nitro-explosive ni trogen is the modern engine of warfare and crime; In the free state in the atmos phere it ministers directly to the quiet and peaceful needs of plant and human life. The Power of Resolution. From Success. Poverty and failure are self-invited. The disaster peop'.e'dread often comes to them. Worry and anxiety enfeeble their force of mind and so blunt their creative and pro ductive faculties that they are unable to exercise them properly. Fear of failure or lack of faith in one's ability is one of the most potent causes of failure. Many peo ple of splendid powers have attained only mediocre success and some are total failures because they set bounds to their achieve ment beyond which they did not allow themselves to think that they could pass. They put limitations to their ability; they cast stumbling blocks in their way by aim ing only at mediocrity or predicting failure for themselves, talking their wares down Instead of up, disparaging their business and belittling their powers. Thoughts are forces, and the constant affirmation of one's inherent right and power to succeed will change inhospitable conditions and unkind environments to favorable ones. If you resolve upon success with energy, you will very soon create a success atmosphere and things will come your way you will make yourself a suc cess magnet The Lateran Holy Table. From the Tablet. Like so many other relics, doubt has sometimes been cast on the authenticity of the holy table at St. John Lateran's. But It would seem as If the doubt rested on no stronger foundation than the mere absence of detailed historical proofs. It is probable, though not certain, that the holy table was brought to Rome by the Empress Helena, together with the holy cross and other me mentos of the passion, and it Is quite cer tain that in the tenth ce?tury the table had already been long preserved In St. John's It used to be kept at th.> high altar, whence it was transferred in tne tenth century to the chapel of Sti Thomas, and from there In the eighteenth century to the loggia In the apse, until It w$s finally moved by Pius IX to its present shrine over the altar of the blessed sacrament. The table (or rather the large part of it which is still pre served) is of cedar; It measures about five feet square and Is over an inch In thick Pittsburg the Typhoid City. From McClure'8. Prosperity and typhoid go hand in liana in Pittsburg. W Ith good times comes an Influx of outsiders, and these whose stom achs are unaccustomed to the dilute sewage supplied by the municipality in the name of water succumb to the ever-present ty phoid germ and send the mortality mount ing skyward.

Ave= l^aks & (Emnpamj >eveimtihi St. aspiring receptacle for bacilli, like Wheel ing, W. Va? may take advantage of local conditions and wrest the banner from Pitts burg for some particular year. Since 1900 Pittsburg's typhoid death rate per 100,000 inhabitants has varied between 124 and 144. By way of comparison, let us consider a foreign city of about the same size, obtain ing its water under the same conditions. Dresden, drawing water from the dirty Elbe, has a death rate of 4 per 100.000. This contrast is worth consideration; Dresden, 4 per 100,000; Pittsburg, 124-144 per 100,0(H). Thus it appears that Pittsburg wastes only from .HI to 36 times as many lives as need be given to the 'modern Minotaur,' as Osier terms this disease. "Whence the disparity? Easily answered. The German city being situated on a huge natural sewer, purifies the water it draws from that sewer; the American city, sim ilarly situated, gulps down the sewage Just as it comes. Pittsburg draws its water supply from two sources of equal contam ination; the Allegheny and the Mononga hela rivers. Typhoid Is always present on both thickly populated watersheds. Pitts burg receives this water through intakes above the city, and distributes it, unpurl fled, with all its bacilli in good working or der." Immigrants and Names. From the New York Sun. The Sun recorded yesterday the fact that many Immigrants to this country change their names to make them easier of pro nunciation by taking the title of the street In which they live. Thus It has happened that many new Americans are called after the streets on the lower east side. The principal interest in this new tendency Is in Its topographical limitation of a custom which earlier had a much broader scope. The cities of Europe used to provide the names by which the families of so many of our own Immigrants are known. Thus Berlin, Strassburg and other cities with the addition of a syllable provided names, but these. It seems, are now giving place to the New York streets In which the foreigners settle. In most cases these street names are the patronymics of noted American families. The Ludlows, Clintons. Delanceys and the like were first among New York's noted citizens of the past. Probably none of them ever Imagined that Its former fame was to be carried Into the future through other means than their own de scendants and the streets named after them. Most Expensive Whisky. From the New York Pres?. A man In Cincinnati bought a barrel of whisky thtrty-five years ago and kept It In a third-story dry-room, well ventilated, and In all the Intervening period used only one pint for testing. There remain today only one and four-fifths gallons of the original thirty-four, the rest being lost through evaporation. A celebrated physician says: "One small drink of whisky contains more electricity and rejuvenating: properties than any med icine that can be prescribed." As to quality, connoisseurs agree that this whisky, considering: its pure distilla tion and great age. is the finest in the world, and that no king or emperor, tlie Rothschilds, Morgans, Vanderbiits, Astors, Carnegies, Beits or Clarks, with all their enormous wealth placing at their will all the luxuries of the world, can command such. A careful estimate of the cost of storage and a computation of interest and insurance for thirty-five' years prove the cost of this whisky at tiie present time to be $4S9.01 a gallon. KENSINGTON NEWS. Base Ball Team Scores a Victory?Gen eral and Personal. SpevMul Corresjiondeare of The St?r. KENSINGTON, Md., June 28, 1905. The Kensington base ball team, reinforc ed by a large number of citizens, Including Dr. Eugene Jones, the manager; Mr. E. C. Brumgton, the assistant manager, and Messrs. Thomas Holbruner, E. J. Kelly and Robert Garrison, visited Brookland, D. C., yesterday afternoon, where they de feated the team of that town. The score by innings was: R.H.E. Brookland 0 1 0 3 0 0 0?4 4 5 Kensington 4 0 0 3 0 2 0?9 6 6 The Kensingtons played well throughout the game. Dr. Jones, the manager, stated that they are looking forward to a num ber of games in the near future, one with The Evening Star nine, to take place Tues day, July 11 at the National Ball Park In Washington. When asked regardin Aiames already played, he said the club has lost but one this season and that to a picked nine from Washington and Montgomery county. A committee composed of Messrs. Wil liam M. Terrell and H. L. McQueen, ap pointed at the congregational meeting of the Warner Memorial Presbyterian Church last Sunday night, waited upon the presby tery with their pastor. Rev. James T. Mar shall, Monday, and there had the pastoral relations dissolved. Mr. Marshall was given a certificate of transfer to the Chicago pres bytery. In this formality the members of the Warner Memorial Church have reluctantly severed their relations with Mr. Marshall, who for the past eleven years has been their pastor. Mr. Marshall will shortly take up his duties at Oak Park, 111., where he goes to the Second Presbyterian Church in acceptance of a call. The best wishes of this entire community will follow him to his new and larger field of service. Mr. Marshall's successor has not been de cided upon, but a committee composed of Messrs. William it.
