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

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

His reli'h for the affairs of the world wa

such channels as the advocacy of the
American cultivation of ramie, a Chinese

Washington. 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. Hv some
conservative officials and diplomats here,
the darger of the Manchurlan .situation has
been intensified hv the publication of the
Anglo-Japanese treaty.

.fanion O. Blaine's Idea.
This tremendous piece of railroading to
Impress visitors was thought out first by
James G Blaine when he was Secretarv of
State for ITesldent Harrison The first
grat Pan-American congre-s was to be
held here. This political move that should
brlrg together the nations of America was
Mr. Blaine's and when it met with such
approval and a great numl-- of delegates
began their trip the Secretary of State v as
eager to show them Just how great were
the nations of North America. Mr. Bod
was sent to talk it over with Mr. Blaine.
Mr. Illalpe s Idea was that the South
Americans shoald be taken In cn train over
the continent as the guests of the Govern
ment at Washington The Pennsylvania
Railroad Compan thought the plan was
feasible, but dl 1 not think at first that It
was posrible to use one locomotive, and at
that time the u-e of different locomotives
would mean the greatest amount of Incon
venience The one tint drew this train
must be fitted up with a heating and light
ing apparatus. l,ocomotlies on other rcaels
were not so fitted Trouble came there.
Flnall they decided to m-ke the trial of
using one locomotive Ihey did It with
great success No 1013 Is the oni locomo
tive that ever accomplished such a journe.
It did It on schedule time.
tie. Boyd In Choree.
Mr. Bod took entire charge of that t-ip.
and no other man has been asked to take
charge of succeeding ones. Andrew Car
negl went on that trip, and ex-Secretarv
Cornelius M. Bliss. General Sternberg and
T. Jefferson Coolidge. Secretary Blaine did
not go. but he was so intensely Interested
In every d-vclopment. of the plan that he
brought Mrs. Blaine over with htm to go
through the cars on a sight-seeing trip
Mr. Bod also arranged and conducted
the famous swing of General Harrison
around America, in ISjI This was the first
time that any President had gone sight
Then came the trip of another Pan
American Congress to the Clt of Mexico,
the tour of the Princess of Spain, and ;ho
Duke of Veragua, the Pacific Coast tour
of the Governor of Pennslvanla and Us
partv. th" tour of his Excellency Vlcero
LI Hung Chang, the tour of Pr sident Mc
Kinley, his Cabinet and guests to the great
Northwest; the tour of the Un'versal Pos
tal Congress, and flnall the journe of the
McKinley funeral part from Washington
to Canton, bearing the great dead and th
distinguished living.
Outside of these great tours that Mr.
Boyd has managed for the Government, he
has taken dozens of small ones as a guide
to the great. He became a cioe friend of
many of the"e men, and thev depended
upon him wherever they went. General
Harrison rarel traveled without him Mr
Blaine was very fond of him. and always
wanted him on every trip. It was Mr. Bod
who took entire charge of the carryiaR w
Mrs Harrison to Loon Lake, when she was
so ill, and it was he who took up the Presi
dent and the family on a special train to
get the dying woman and bring her back
to the White House.
