Tuberculosis Exhibits Will Be
in Place Monday.
New National Museum Building
Adopted for Meeting Place.
Superintendent of Union Printers'
Home Will Take Part in
Phthisis Conference.
Between the hours of .1 and 5 this afternoon
the exhibits of the International
Congress on Tuberculosis will be viewed
by newspaper men at the invitation of
officers of the conpreBs.
It was stated this morning by officials
in charge that everything would be completely
installed by Monday In time for
the opening exercises. To do so, however,
a tremendous lot of work must be
gone through with.
The halls of the new National Museum
building resound with . ammers. Workmen
are scurrying back and forth. Superintendents
and men in charge of ex
hibits are rushing around with hunches
of papers in their hands, answering a
dozen questions at once and appearing
to have much more to do tfyan they can
possibly get through with.
Dr. Fulton, secretary general, has established
his oflice in the building, although
he has not abandoned the Colorado
building rooms. His force of clerks
is hard at work and will be busily employed
for the next week at the newly
formed registration bureau, where every
one of the delegates and congressists is
expected to leave his name, address and
other information of value to the congress.
Dr. Beyer.,who has general charge of
the exhibits, has also a little office in
the new building.
Although the building in which the
greatest congress of its kind has ever
convened is in a half-finished state, no

Superintendent De&con Here.
Charles W. Deacon, superintendent of
the Union Printers' Home, at Colorado
Springs, Colo., arrived In Washington
yesterday to attend the congress.
Mr. nnn will ar?t In oAnH.?o*5nn
with the International Typographical
Union committee appointed by President
Lynch to represent the printers'
organization at the congress. He will j
be In attendance at the sessions of the I
convention to give a comprehensive his- |
tory of the treatment inaugurated at I
the tuberculosis sanatorium, the benefits
derived by the inmates, and give
statistics showing the remarkable progress
that has been made by the Institution
in its fight of a decade against the
ravages of consumption in the ranks of
Mrs. Deacon, matron of the home, is
acting superintendent during her husband's
absence from Colorado Springs.
The exhibit from the printers' home,
which consists of photographs of the
buildings, literature describing the methods
of treatment of tuberculosis and a
miniature tent of the kind used for the
open-air treatment at the sanatorium, is
being installed in its place in the New
National Museum building. Decorators
are at work upon it. When the congress
opens its session. Monday night, it will
i be one of the most attractive as well as
instructive exhibits at the convention,
i The I. T. I", committee, President Kidd |
anu ur, j k. Armstrong, chairman of I
Columbia Union committee on prevention 1
of tuberculosis, met with Mr. Deacon .at
Typographical Temple last evening and
discussed the plans to be carried out during
the convention. The committee will
be at the National Museum Sunday morning
to receive instructions from Supt.
Deacon, that they may be familiar with
the apparatus and details to assist him
during the sessions in explaining the wora
of the officials of the home in the treatment
of consumption.
October 4 has been set aside as Trades
Unions day. At that time President
Gompers of the American Federation of
Labor will deliver an address. James M.
Lynch, president of the International
Typographical Union, will be in Washington
on that dat^ and will probably have j
something to say about what the printers
have been doing Tor years in the carc of j
their invalid and aged members.
Concerning Printers' Home.
In an interview with a Star reporter to- j
day Supt. Deacon said:
"I believe this gathering of scientists i
and medical men from all parts of the j
world will be of great value in the prevention
and treatment of tuberculosis. A
crusade for better sanitary conditions for
working people, who are th" largest suf
ferers from this dread disease, will be
pushed vigorously, and with the inauguration
of this movement will begin the'
decrease of the large percentage of tuberculosis
among the class of people who ,
work in shops, offices and factories.
J "Ten years ago the International Typographical
Union built a tuberculosis hospital
at the printers' home for, the care
and treatment of its members who have
contracted the disease, and in many cases
where patients in the early stage have
availed themselves of our treatment they
have l"ft the institution in good health,
able to resume active work. During the
past year several improvements have j
been made, which add materially 10 the
resources of the home.
"The number of applicants for admission
to the tuberculosis sanatorium made
an enlargement of the hospital acoommo
i nations requisite, ine virtue oi tue op-n- i
air treatment in the tight against tuberculosis
has been proved conclusively, and j
the extremely satisfactory results obtained
from the use of tents at the home j
have established their efficiency beyond j
"When the need of more hospital room
became apparent it was deemed advisa- !
hie by the board to erect additional tents,
together with a centra! building for the
use of the tenters. The tents are constructed
on the same plan as the original
ones, are octagonal in shape, with substantial
framework, covered with heavy
double-tiller army canvas. They are
steam heated and electric lighted.
"The central building, or solarium, is
frame, with two sides of glass, giving the
occupants the benefit of the sun at all
hours of the day. The building is provided
with baths, lavatories and all conveniences.
"The solarium is furnished with mission
style furniture, is provided with writing
desk, tables and easy chairs, making a
sitting room that is both attractive and
comfortable. The cost of tents, solarium
and furnishings is about J4.000."
W. B. Prescott. former president of the
International Typographical Union, wil!

speak to Washington printers at Typographical
Temple. His subject will be the

ship Aeon, now at Christmas Island.
The supply ship Solace is due at Samoa
tomorrow, following in the trail of
Admiral Swinbourne's fleet. She will be

ABERDEEN. Scotland. September 13.
Every little hamlet in Scotland, every
town and every stream, every mountain
and almost every meadow is historic, and
one who has never been here cannot realize
the interest excited by the names of
j places that he read about in his sehool!
days. Along the railway between Perth
1 and Aberdeen we passed through Mac
beth's country, and he whom we vaguely

dream turns out to be a real king. The
people here say Shakespeare must have
visited the scenes he describes in the play,
because they are so accurate in their
geographical and topographical details.
But there Is no other evidence that he was
ever In this part of the kingdom. Lew
Wallace gave us In "Ben Hur" the best
description of Ephesus ever written, and
yet he was never there. He once explained,
in answer to my inquiry on this
subject, that he got his ideas from the
captain of a steamer who had been trading
along the coast of Asia Minor for
many years and had frequently visited
Ephesus while his ship was loading and
unloading at Smyrna.
Scotch History and Plot of Macbeth.
Shakespeare found the plot for the play
of "Macbeth" in a volume of chronicles
of early Scottish history, and he must
have found somebody familiar with this
part of the country to describe the geography
for him. Sir Walter Scott used
several of the legends of these ancient
villages in his historical novels, and other
authors have found them useful material.
It is interesting to know that Thrums,
the quaint little town so well known to
the readers of Mr. J. M. Rarrie. is quite
near the c.'astle of Macbeth, and'the house
in which Rarrie was born Is the same
from which lie pictures his heroine watehI
ing for tlie return ff her wandering son.
j Soon after the Picts and Scots were conj
solidated into a single nation by ICen;
netli MacAlpine, a fleet of Danes sailed
j over the seas and landed on the coast of
! Fifesliire. King Duncan of Scotland had
i two young tons, Malcolm and Donaldi
bane, but both were too young to comi
mand an army, so he sent Macbeth, a
' son of the Thane (Earl) of Olamis, Mac'
both drove the Danes back to their ships
1 and the ocean was colored with their
| blood. After the victory, while he was
marching home, lie met three ohl witches.
"All Hail. Macbeth: Hall to thee, Thane
of Glamis!" cried tlie first.
"All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane
of Cawdor!" cried the second.
"All hail, Macbeth!" cried the third,
"Hail to thee; thou shall be kins hereafter!"
How the Prophesies Were Fulfilled.
i While Macbeth was wondering indiffer:
ently as to what they meant, a messenger
came to tell him that his father was dead
and that he was Thane of Glamis. Hefore
his officers had finished their condolences
and congratulations upon his coming
into the title, a messenger, arrived
from Old King Duncan thanking him for
his victory over the Danes and announcI
lng that he had. been created Ear! of
I Cawdor. Thus tlie prophesies of two of
the old danes came true and Macbeth
began to be anxious whether the third
prophesy should also be fulfilled, an ambition
that was stimulated by his wife,
who was a very disagreeable woman.
She induced him to invite the king to
his castle, and Duncan came, accompanied
by his young sons, Malcolm and
Donaldbane. They were joyfully received
and a great feast was given in their honor.
According to the custom of the times King
Duncan anil everybody else went to bed
drunk. Urged by his wife, Macbeth drugged
the guards at his door and the
guests and stabbed the old man to the
heart. In the morning, when the two
young princes learned of the tragic death
of their father, they fled from the castle,
Malcolm finding his waj- to the English
court and Donaldbane taking refuge in
the western isles.

This was the answer:

- : l(
? unii ?-*uur nsniini mm.
Macbeth lived in a strong castle nn
Dunsinane hill. Birnam Wood was tihe j
name of a forest about twelve miles dis- (
tant across a broad valley. Macbeth
wondered over the ambiguous words, and
strengthened his fortifications as much
as possible.
The Threat and Macbeth's Fall.
Among the earls of Scotland was a
young and powerful man named Macduff, i
who was suspected of sympathy with i
young Prince Malcolm. Macbeth watched
him very closely for that reason. One
day Macduff came, to the castle, and Macbeth
gave a great feast in ihis honor.
Afterward the uneasy king crept out of
the castle and found a pair of oxen so
tired they could hardly keep their feet,
and when Macbeth learned that they belonged
to Macduff he said to the driver:
"Since the Thane of Fife sends such
worthless cattle to do my work. I will
make -him drag the burdens himself.'
When Macduff heard of this threat he left
the castle as soon as he could do so
i politely and hurried back to his home. |
where he organized an army and inarched .
, toward Dunsinane. He camped about
Birnam Woods for the night. In the

bouulis from the trees and carry them in
front of them, so that Macbeth might not

vancing. The sentinel at the castle noti;
fled the king as soon as he saw the j
j conrious column approaching, and every
| knight and squire, as well as Macbeth
himself, recognized in the moving grove .
that Blrnam Wood was coming to Dunslj
nane hill in fulfillment of the phophecy.
I Battles in those days were usually handj
to-hand encounters and in the ojie that
followed Macbeth was killed by Macduff
j almost at the beginning of the tight.
; Voung Malcolm was recalled from the
English court and pla<-ed upon the Scot!
tisli throne. He married a girl who afterward
was made a saint and left an excellent
record, although he could not read
or write.
Glamls Castle, which became the residence
of Malcolm, is one of the most imposing
in all Scotland. It is now the seat
of the Earls of Strathmore. There is no
more imposing example of a feudal
stronghold in the world. The village of
Meigle, said fo be the olde.<*t of Scotch
villages, is the railway station.
Earl of Fife's Coronation Right.
Macbeth is buried in the ruins of a Cistercian
abbey near where he fell at Lumphanan
on the banks of the river Dee.
The Earls of Fife are the descendants of
! Macduff who from bis services in over
throwing Macbeth and restoring the rightful
heir to the throne, was given the ;
hereditary right of placing the crown :
upon the head of the Scottish sovereign. ;
Cawdor Castle, the home of Macbeth's I
father, from whom the latter inherited the I
title "Thane of Cawdor," is still standing J
in the town of Cawdor, near Nairn, where
James Bryce, the British ambassador at |
Washington, is now visiting his brother J
Annan, who lives there. The descendants f
of Macbeth's brother still own the place
and bear the name of c alder. ,
Muriella Calder was the heroine of a ,
very exciting romance about the begin- (
ning of the sixteenth century. One day (
while playing with her nurse in the ,
grounds of the castle a bund of the Carnp- (
bell clan swooped down and kidnaped j
| her. The nurse fled to the castle, gave
I the alarm and the child's father and
I uncles started in pursuit. They soon
overtook the kidnapers and might have
rescued Muriella but for a cool trick of J
Campbell of Inverliver. This resourceful
rascal inverted a large camp kettle as
if to conceal the little princess and
charged his seven sons to defend it to the j
death, while he rode on with the child
under his plaid. The seven young men
fought desperately nearly all day and J
when they were all killed and the kettle <
was overturned Muriella was beyond res- (
cue. This little maiden became the wife
of John of Lome and the ancestress of
the Marquis of Lome, who married the (
Princess Louise. daughter of Queen Vic- i
toria, and is now the Duke of Argyle. t

mances and every castle its traditions.
For example, Kinnelhouse was the ancient
seat of the chiefs of the MacN&bs,
who were rather reckless in Jheir behavior
and indifferent as to their debts.
One day when the sheriff of Edlnborough
came up to serve a writ upon the MacNab
he saw what looked like the figure
of a man hanging from a tree near the!
entrance to the castle and was told on
inquiry that "it was nothing but the
body of a lam messenger frae Edinburgh 1
tat had ta presumption to bring a bit o'
paper to ta Laird." The hint had the effect
intended and he returned to the capital
without explaining his business,
