His lt.t Lonely D:iy Were Oc- oiipiutl in Putting in Order His Great Collection of 1,-tter-y Fiom Xotetl Ameiitan. After rreparing for his farevell. with the calmness of the ttolc of old. Professor Syl vester Waterhouse, ono of the master minds for nearly half a centurj In th" faculty of Washington University, 'obeyed the fiml summons yesterday at Mullanphy Hospltal. Death did not steal upon the scholar unawares Day by day. In his solitan study, he was seated fo- weeks, with let ters of the Illustrious dead heaped nbout him. Alone he calmly awaited there what h believed to b his swiftly approaching departure from the busy world in which he had plaved a distinguished part. Here he Indulged In plea&ant reminiscences. Among the heap or writings which he as sorted and Indexed, were ltter- In the hands of Henry Ward Recher. Wendell Phillips. Louis Agisslz, Longfellow, Wil liam Lloyd Girrlson. Jim's RfsjfH Lowell, Oliver Wendell Holmes and other eminent Americans. "I am getting re-id for the grim mes senger," he explained to a newspaper visi tor, who called at his apartments o"j Washington avenue, a short time before he was removed to the hoptaI. I have been warned that life Is onlj a question of days and perhaps hours for me If Providen'-e will be klrj to me, as be has always been I may finish putting mj- papers in snipe for those who may find some amusement In them." l.OV I(.LY I'Kitisnn LETTr.KS FROM OI.I) FRIENDS. A student lamp at his elbow. In the gloom of a dark dij, illuminate 1 the tudi. The wan light from the flaring jet made the face of the scholar look ghost!. His hands ceaseles1 wandered In an aimless search for something to do They reached for Ietteri which were fin gered lovingly; the adjusted and read justed the shade over the eyes; the glasses which continually fell down the nose were r placed b nervous Angers; they stroked the beard and face and caressed the lips that trembled with emotion N. ler for an Instant did the hinds cease to bespeak the wond'rful vltallt which was holding the wated frame together All the while the active mind showed its keenness for what was pissing In the world without th barred windows. The sound of street traf fic di-turbed the stllln"ss of the study, but these noises seemed to be company for the patient sufferer. These were some of the last scenes which attended the preparation of Professor Wa terhouse for the end. The a ltne method which had mirked his cierda work at the university was followed out In the details for his funeral, which will be found this morning among hi papers, a- Intimated to Chancillor W S Chaplin of the university.

The remarkable Intellectual attainments of Professor Waterhouse were developed as lie related, by his bodily- Infirmities He was forced to turn to the calling of th; scholar. His reli'h for the affairs of the world wa displayed by Ihe singular fact that al though recognized as an authority on Greek roots, he turned his energies Into such channels as the advocacy of the American cultivation of ramie, a Chinese fibrous plant, suitable for garment cloth; the huildlrg of the Isthmian Canal; the re clamation of arid lands, and the intellectual and moral profits derived from the holr-mtf of International expositions.

FVb. 12 Uf sides creating a inosi profound -ensation and occasioning the greatest surprise, the publication or the Anglo-Japanese treaty is looked upon b some diplomats here as in itself an ulti matum to Russia to eiacuate Manchuria. The coni-ntion between Russia and China for the gradual evacuation of Northern China was to have been signed two weeks henee In view of the alliance of Great Ilrltsin and Japan. China ma. now refuse to sign the convention btich refusal, it is stated, will be followed b the retention ot Russian troofs in Manchuria Hut If this be done, then Great Britain and Japan must ae t under the treaty signed b them to expel Russia. Certainly Russia villi resist expulsion and France, whose Interests necessitate acting with her all, villi be drawn Into the conflict.
