DROWNED IN UPPER POTOMAC^
Dead Boy's Companion Escaped by
Athletic Feat.
CUMBERLAND, Mil., June 8.?William
Peacemaker, aged nineteen years, was
drowned in tlie Potomac river Saturday
night while crossing from Oldtown, Md., to
Green Spring. W. Va., in a skiff, which
struck driftwood and capsized In midstream.
William Dufr, the other occupant
of the boat, had a thrilling escape. Grappling
the cable of the ferry which crosses
the river at that point, hand over hand he
worked Ills way to the shore. Peacemaker's
body had not been recovered at last retxirts.
Th* river is far beyond its banks as a
result of the heavy rains of Saturday and
Friday night. A boatman, together with
two of his passengers, was carried down
by the current from a point near Patterson's
creek and harely escaped drowning.
Dr. FVrcival Uantz of Frankfort. W. Va.,
was called to the Maryland side to see a
patient, and. with the iioatmaii and another
passenger, was carried down the stream,
control having been lost of the boat. They
were washed over the rapids and thought
they were lost when the boat suddenlv
shot toward the shore and the occupants I
grasped the overhanging branches of a tret I
and pulled themselves to safetf. '
LIGHTNING FLASHES CAUGHT
INTERESTING DEMONSTRATION
BY ALEXANDER LARSEN.
Cameras Placed Upon a Revolving
Table So as to Photograph Electric
* Rushes?Some Found Dark.
Smithsonian grants to a night school student
are not common, but that is what has
happened In the case of Alexander Larsen,
a Danish Immigrant, who has made a special
report on the make-up of lightning
flashes as the result of a small grant that
was made him for sripnMfir4 nnnnratus.
Mr. Larsen came to this country only a
few years ago, and all hiB study of chemistry,
photography and electricity has been
picked up while attending night school. He
made some remarkable lightning pictures
with an old hand camera, and. presenting
the subject to tiie Smithsonian Institution,
explained what he thought he could do in j
the way of measuring and studying lightning ]
flashes if he had a little better apparatus. !
The officials were interested in his work. I
and a small sum was given to him with
which to continue.
Larsen rigged up a revolving table, upon
which he placed cameras in such position
as to catch lightning flashes at various
It WJQ ar\r^r> V? o t
is called a flash of lightning is in reality a
succession of flashes, following one another
with almost inconceivable swiftness, and
deceiving the eye with an appearance of
oneness. Mr. Larsen counted upon his sensitive
plates as many as forty flashes in a
single flash of lightning, and is convinced
that in the forty were scores of swifter
flashes which eluded the camera.
Measurements were taken of the time
elapsing between the flashes or rushes that
could be seen on the negative. It was found
that some of the flashes were two one-thousandths
of a second apart. The measurement
was made by calculating the width

"Black Lightning."
Many obscure things were noted about
these rushes of lightning, but the most
striking fact learned was that some of the
rushes were not light, but dark. That is,
the electric impulse was there, just the
same as In the flashes, but the camera did
not catch any light.
Repeated experiments established the fact
that there is such a thing as "black" lightning.
or atmospheric electrical discharges
that are not visible, and that they are mingled
with discharges that are visible?the
old-fashioned "lightning." How is it accounted
for? Mr. Larsen's own explanation
is as good as any other:
"The flash," se says, speaking of the flash
that gives no light, '-must have given out
light of a wave length much shorter than
the wave lengths of visible light, and with
a power sufficient to render the part of the
plate struck by it nonsensitive to ordinary
light. Such a flash would appear black on
a partially illuminated background, or be
invisible."
Too Quick for the Camera.
In other words, "black lightning" is lightning
of such short light-waves that the
illumination is not perceived r>y tne human
eye or by the camera. This has suggested
the thought that there may be light-waves
of such velocity as to be equally beyond the
perception of the eye or the camera, producing
light so intense that the human
eye is not only incapable of perceiving it,
but is ignorant of its existence.
Some of the scientists of the Smithsonian
Institution, pondering upon Laisen's discoveries,
are wondering whether it may not
be possible to discover that the abysses of
the universe are not immersed in darkness
between planet and planet, as they seem to
be, but are really bathed in light of such intense
quality as to be totally imperceptible
to human beings.

SERMON TO GRADUATES
BISHOP SATTERLEE'S ADVICE TO
YOUNG WOMEN.
The girl graduates of the National Catheflral
Sfhnnl Q J <n wViUft ???
wt, uivutu in mine v. a owu
gowns, yesterday with their friends gathered
in St. Alban s Church to hear the baccalaureate
sermon by Bishop Satterlee.
Special music was provided for the occasion,
under the direction of Edgar Priest.
All of the students marched in procession
from the main building to the church,
where the audience was in waiting. Accompanying
the pupils were the faculty, and
the assisting ministers in black, and the
bishop in his robes. Miss Ethel Roosevelt,
who is one of the students, and who graduates
next year, was unable to be present.
Bishop Satterlee's sermon to the young i
lady Kraduates was in part as follows: I
"Members of the graduating class of the
Cathedral School, this is the thought I
would leave with you as you bid farewell
to your school days and go forth to begin |
your work in the higher school of life: :
"Remember the power of your uncon- j
scions iniiuence. Rememoer your uncon- j
scious influence without depends on the
character of your inward thoughts.
"And if you ask how you are to keep
thinking only of those tilings which are
pure and lovely and of good report; if you
say that nothing in this world is so hard
as to control our thoughts; if you atk,
"How is one to gain the inspiration for the
lifework?" you will find the answer of St.
Paul, all through the epistle to the Piiilippians;
and not only in the epistle, but all
through the New Testament itself, which
tells you how Christ loves you.
Love the Foundation.
"You cannot control your thoughts if you
think of your love for Him. You cannot
force yourself to think of Him, or to love
Him, or to feel a love which does not stir
in your hearts.
"But you can force yourselves to think
how He loved you.
"You have Deen made in God's own im
juu ueiung iu liiiri iib jiih uwn uiiiiu.
Clirlst loves you because lie loves His own,
and because He laid (-own His life for you."
This evening the graduates will give a
production of Milton's "Comus," the music
for the original production of which was
written in 18JM by Henry Lanes. The only
existing copy of the music Is in the British
Museum. The music used by the class of
'07 was composed for an adaptation of the
masque, in 1738, by Dr. Augustus Arne.
The score of Dr. Arne's music in the Congressional-Library
is believed to be the only
copy in America.
Tiie graduates are as follows: Mary
Heard Chew, Kathryn Van VIeck Townsend,
Catherine Woodward, Lelia Mtiriel
Wittier. Katharine Doty Peoples, Margaret
Lucile Thomas, Madeline Carey Fellows,
Marie Antoinette Aldrieh.Carl Louise Bushby,

PROPOSED INTERNATIONAL CONTERENCE
AT BUENOS AIRES.
The Argentine proposal to be laid before
the approaching second Hague conference,
looking to the holding of a third International
conference In Buenos Aires In 1910,
will, it is expected, result in bringing the
conference face to face with the proposition
to give the conference permanency
and provide for periodic gatherings. In
that event there are certain to be some clever
diplomatic fencing and more or less animated
discussion, for the fact Is tha: some

the second conference unwillingly by force
of public opinion and are believed to be
strongly averse to binding themselves to
participate in a continuous round of meet- i
ings at which they would be constantly !
confronted with the danger of having to j
discuss or even vote upon delicate interna- i
lional questions that they would much
rather leave untouched. Such, for instance,
was the proposition to limit international
armaments, which came near causing the
abandonment of the second conference
even after ail of the invitations had been I
accepted. It may reasonably be apprehended
that In connection with the plea !
for a conference in I'.llo the whole subject f
of creating a permanent conference, with t
set periods for meeting, will come under '
consideration.
ONLY SURVIVOR OUT OF FIVE.
Pleasure Sail on Auxiliary Sloop
Ended Disastrously.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jlay It.?Edward
Orth of Brooklyn, N. Y., only survivor of
a party of five men who sailed from Brooklyn
on Friday, was brought here yesterday
by Capt. HcGoodrich of the tug Wyoming,
mnrp ilpnrl than ollvo Wo ?vio un
unconscious and afloat, lashed to an upturned
sloop, off Norwalk, late today, and
was hurried to the hospital here, where he
now lies.
Orth was sufficiently revived before he
relapsed again into a semi-conscious state
to tell his story disjointedly. Pieced together,
his experiences are as follows:
"I left home probably Friday?I am not
certain?with my brother, Jacob Orth; our
brother-in-law, August Yagger; George
Glasser and Otto Plleghar, all of Brooklyn,
in the thirteen-foot auxiliary sloop Belle for
a pleasure sail. We came as far as New
Haven Saturday morning and stayed a few
uours, ana men went to jjnugeporc, wnere
we left early this morning homeward
bound.
"We got out some miles when something
went wrong with the engine, I don't know
what it was exactly, but we all turned in
to fix it. A big wave that seemed like a
mountain of water struck us amidships, and
so quickly that I can't describe the sensation,
we were all thrown into the sea and
the boat turned over.
"I managed to catch hold of a rope that
swung well out and dragged myself up on
the bottom. I tied myseif to it, so that I
was not swept off. The sea ran over me,
drenching me to the skin and chilling me
so that I lost consciousness until I found
myseif in the cabin of"the tug."
The Wyoming's crew sighted the drifting
boat and man and hauled him in, but could
find no sign of the other men, and it Is
feared they were lostOrth
is suffering from exposure, but .t is
hoped he will recover. He remembers that
he saw two men struggling too far from
him to reach him when lie lost consciousness.

Mistake of Trying to Cover
Too Much Ground."
The faculty. Student body and friends
of the Catholic University of America
were present In the chapel of Caldwell
Hall at the University yesterday mornliiK
at 10 o'clock, when solemn hifrh mass
was celebrated by Mgr. D. J. O'Connel!,
the rector. The scene was a brilliant
one. the professors and students being; j
garbed in the distinctively decorated cap I
and sown of their various departments, j
Gregorian music was rendered by a choir i
of picked voices.
Rev. Dr. Joseph Tra.-ey of Brighton, j
Mass., president of the Alumni Associa- i
tion of the Catholic University, preached
the baccala'.ireute sermon to the students.
"To begin with, let me warn you against j
the radical mistake of trying to cover
too much ground." Dr. Tracey said. "The
curriculum of the Catholic college, in
spile of eleotivisin, still commonly maintains
its balance in favor of tiie elements
oi a liberal education.
Cult of Specialties.
I .
There has come to pass, however, the j
cu!t of specialties, the distinctive character
of intellectual progress. Having
acquired the essential and important de- j
tails of his general subject, the aspirant <
to some degree of eminence specializes; !
the Interest in a thousand things char- ;
acteristic of a cultured mind must he j
curbed and subordinated by the dominat- j
lng pursuit of one. Commonplace though i
the observation appears. It Is not without
its relevancy. Catholic Americans
have not their due proportion of trulyeminent
specialists. When we would vindicate
the claim of our church to a place
In the vanguard of knowledge too often
our appeal must be to the Catholic intellect
of Kurope. We have the name.
uiuccu, ui tuiiiuiun wmi our non-uamoiic
countrymen of malting money, but, unlike
many of them, not of influencing
thought. Formerly, when educated Catholics
were fewer, the unavoidable overcrowding
of careers capable of such eminence
by the Incessant pressure of ordinary
duties, excused, in a measure, our
deficiency; but one sees with regret that,
while the number of Catholics In the
higher walks of life have Increased, eminence
Is as rare as over; and this in
spite of the fact that the character and
ability of the Catholic student body have
improved very much during the last fifteen
or twenty years?a change not al
togeuier unuue, one may notice 111 passing,
to the foundation and influence of
this university.
"American Catholics need specialistseminent
specialists, who will create literatures
in the various fields of research;
and if there be any to whom
they have a right to look for relief it is
to you. Not all can achieve what they
need, but some of you should be able to
do so. Do not shirk your responsibility.
The essay required for your licentiate
or the brochure of the doctorate does not

earnest of what you owe; forget it* until
you do something- worth while.
Demands of Higher Task.
"Let not the burden and routine of necessary
everyday duty hinder or choke the
unwearying effort, the exacting discipline, i
tlie persevering sacrifice of ease your high- j
er task demands. Work, work, work! I j
Work systematically planned, effectively j j
applied, and generously expended?investi- ! ;
gation, experiment and research?by these I $
means alone will the crude ore of your ! ?
laboratory or study become the Dure cold ! ?
of ascertained result.
"Not only in the arts and sciences is ex- ;
ceptional work looked for from you; com- ;
ing from this university, you owj special >
service to the cause of religion. But one j
aspect of your duty may be touched upon, ?
and this briefly. Under the caption ; f
"Changed Times," a leading newspaper re- I ?
cently drew attention to a suggestive fact. | S
Yale University founded "to train godly | ?
young men for the Christian ministry" to
dajs gives only i.7 percentage of Its stu- .
dents to that career; twenty-live years ago j
the proportion was double. "On the face of ?
tilings," commented the editor, "there is *
everywhere an undoubted tendency to neg- I
iect the teachings and forms of organized J
religion. Side by side with this tendency is 1
another which shows that charities and |
public benevolence of all kinds are claiming j
a larger share of the Interest and money of j
educated and wealthy people. Can it be ]
that in the nast theology was confounded :
with Christianity, anil, being now considered
an exploded science, no longer interests
the majority of educated men, while
Christianity?doing good to one's fellowmen?has
a stronger and stronger hold?"
