Edward Tyler, chief warden for Maryland of <he League of American Sportsmen, and an amateur photographer of "epute, lectured yesterday at the Friends' School upon "Nature Studies." His lecture was Interspersed with about 150 lantern slides, chiefly of game birds, the hawk, the raccoon and opossum. His observations with the camera were made chiefly in Maryland, but Mr. Tyler is also familiar with the camp life of Florida and its bird colonies, as well as the woods of Mnlne and Canada. Every picture had its different story, and scattered throughout the talk were bits of woodlore and forest crat't that delighted the hcarere. Mr. Tyler knows the birds and snakes through face-to-face experience, not through books, so he differs greatly from many of the naturalists. A full report of his lecture is impossible, but the following brief paragraphs may be of Interest; "The pot-hunter Is the quail's greatest enemy in Maryland, but our chofcest game bird has others as well. The heavy winter of last year did more to kill the quail than the pot-hunters." "The woman who wears the mummy of a bird on her bonnet and then reads a paper on 'Cruelty to Children' before her Ladies' Aid Society has a strange and complex character." "The raccoon can give Br'er Fox points in cunning.'' "Raccoons take to the tallest tree within reach, while the opossum generally scam pers into a sapling. The colored folk think this a special grace from Providence." "Black snakes are harmless. I would rather sleep in bed with one than with a drunken man." "The man who believes that he was ever chased by a snake that lives in this part of the country had a very bad case of rattles." "1 hate to destroy the pretty picture, given us of a mother opossum with her young on her back, their tails entwined around hers, which gracefully waves over her back, and then read below that that Is the way she carries her young; but In the cause of truth I shall have to pronounce it bosh." "I have authentic proof that tho wood cock carries its young hugged between its legs when it is necessary to gel it away from a spot quickly." "The whip-poor-will is the only bird or beast that has no home of any description. The eggs art laid on the ground without the turning of a single twig." "A snake cannot jump at you and etrike you. The farthest it can strike is not over one-lialf of its length." "The farmer might lose half a dozen chickens from the cold or cholera, but let htm lose one through a hawk and he will let out a howl that reaches his neighbors roundabout. The hawk is a friend of mine, and he does the farmer much more good than harm." "The farmer and the legislator have no business interfering with the plan of Na ture. Live and let live." "The man who invented the steel trap should, like Guillotine, be executed or at least be given a severe taste of his own torture." "The buzzard Ilnds H%carrion by sight as well as scent."

Notable improvement In the Hre depart ment building of the Washington navy yard will be made In a few day*, when tne oomblnatlon structure near the main north gate is completed. This structure, as pre viously described in The Star, will be used as a naval prison, telephone exchange, headquarters tor the watchmen and Ore de partment quarters. The officers of the navy yard are rrou<J of their Are department and Its efficiency. The firemen are blue-clad murines, with Uncle Sam's sallormen as auxiliaries when occasion demands. On the occasion of re cent flre drills the department has made the record time of reaching the scene of supposed conflagrations In threw and a half minutes. I The apparatus to b* quartered at the new flre station will Include two chemical en gines, one hook and laddir truck, two reels, with hand lire grenades or extinguishers In the several shops and other buildings. The fire-alarm system in the navy yard embraces a feature which recalls the flre "alarums" described so vividly in Poe's poem, "The Bells." ' Sounding of the Alarm. When a blaze is discovered in the estab- | lishment the number of the box is sounded from a large bell on the root of the gun shop. Then another big bell, which will be located in a tower over the new comblna- j tlon building, will be elangad loudly and continuously to call the marines end o'hers to flre quarters to man the apparatus. When the members of the marlno guard i>nd the sailors that may be at Ihe yard hear the violent ringing of the last named bell they are required by orders to drop whatever they may be doing, unless they are on guard, and repair qui:kly to the flre house. A test of the efficiency of the navy yard flre department was given a few days ago, when flames were ilisvovared In the car tridge case shop. The blaze was extin guished without calling upon the city de partment, and before very much damage had resulted. When a marine sentry discovers a nre in the yard he is required to discharge his rifle, which, being heard by the corporal of the guard, results In rhe lire bells being sounded, it Is said several improvements In the navy yard lire system are contem plated when the apparatus Is installed In the new building. New Structure's Designation. The new structure, which will take the place of the ancient wooden watch-box near the main or 8tli street gate, will be ktiOwn a? "the flre and telephone station and naval prison building," appropriated by Congress, under act, March 3, 1905. The building will be fifty feet long, thirty feet wide and about twenty-eight feet high, not counting the tower and slope of roof; count ing the tower and slope of roof It would be about thirty-eight feet high. The tower on the roof will contain the bell, which will ring the hour of day and also the alarms. This yard has about ten flre alarm sta tions in different parts of the yard, divided to suit the different buildings and resi- j d?nees. The second floor of this building will con tain the prison cells, about ten In number; prison lavatories, telephone switch boards j end one or two bed rooms for the guards on watch at the telephone switch boards. The first floor will have the post office for the navy yard, and also room for two chemical hand engines, two hose reels ana ? cne large hook and ladder truck. The engines and reels take about eight men each, while the hook and ladder truck takes about twelve men or more. The hook and ladder truck Is of the lat est pattern, having a raising ladder which will reacfh nearly the top of any building in this yard. The building cost about 115,000, built by yard labor. The brick In this building was bought from Ohio, and cost alnmt W6 per 1,000, and the stone was shipped from In diana. and Is called Indiana blue stone. The building will be equipped with the latest style fittings throughout, and will be the first thing visitors will see upon enter ing the yard on their right. This yard has been very badly In need ot such a building,, and it will be used to the best advantage. The captain of the yard will be in charge of the lire department, while officers of the Marine Corps and navy will assist in carry ing out his orders.

CASE WA8 BEOPENED ADDITIONAL TESTIMONY AS?SO" STEELE MURDER. After considering the case of William K. Prottt, charged with murder in the second degree, since early in the Afternoon yester day without being able to reach an agree ment, the Jury appeared in Criminal Court No. 1 before noon today and requested the eluoldation of certain points of law. The foreman explained that the Jurors seemed to be hopelessly divided. After reporting their Inability to reach a verdict at a late hour last evening they had been locked up for the night. "When the court had explained the princi pal question of law presented this morn ing by the Jury, questions of fact arose, and It appeared from a reference to the records that there had been no evidence adduced at the trial to show the exact condition of one of the hands of William H. Steele, the vic tim of the shooting. It had appeared in the testimony that a portion of the fatal shot had struck Steele in one hand, but there was no evidence to Indicate from the wound the position of the hand at the time of the shooting. This was" considered Important by the Jurors. When the fact was brought out Justice Wright held it to be an essen tial point and directed that the case be re opened to the extent of hearing testimony on that question. The Jury again retired and the court directed that Dr. L. W. Glazebrook, the deputy coroner, who performed the autopsy on the remains of Steele, and Dr. Percy Hickllng, who amputated Steele's injured jnember at the Washington Asylum Hos pital, be summoned to give testimony as to the exact character of the wound in ques tion. Dr. L. W. Glazebrook this afternoon testi fied that from the appearance of the wound on Steele's hand he believed that the muz zle of the gun had been only eight or ten inches away at the time the weapon was discharged. It was also the opinion of the witness that the band was not more than a foot from the body when the shot was fired. He believed that the load had en tered the back of the hand. The Jury again retired. A verdict had not been reached up to a late hour this afternoon. Nothing Better in Butter Than : Shuffle's Special Elgin Creamery.

Non-Resident Pupils Whose Parents tay Taxes. "Justice demands that this change should be made, and I move that It be brought at once to the attention of Congress." With the foregoing indorsement by Com missioner Macfarland the draft of a pro posed bill to extend the privileges of the public schools of the District, free of charge, to non-resident pupils who either psy taxes In the District, or whose parents pay taxes, was referred to Commissioners West and Btddle today. The question of admitting non-resident pup.Is to the public schools for freo instruction waa brought up In connection with the request of Mrs. Louise H. Earll of Chevy Chase, Md., that her son, Donald Earll, be allowed to attend the public school at Chevy Chase, D. C., without the payment of tuition charges. Mrs. Earil stated in support of her case that she paid annually $75 taxes in the District of Columbia. The matter was re ferred to the corporation counsel, but he decided that, under existing law, the re quest could not be granted. Taking into consideration the equity of Mrs. Earll's contention, the Commissioners directed that the corporation counsel pre pare the draft of an amendment to the ex isting law. If Congress does take the ad- , vocated action, provision will have been made for extending the privileges of the public school system to two classes of non residents?pupils who own property and pay taxes in the District and to pupils whose parents similarly own property and pay taxes. $1.25 To Baltimore and Return. $1.25 Pennsylvania railroad.
