New York, May 13. Mayor Gatnor
of New York, having notified the po
lice to stop the performances of
Valeska Suratt in "The Girl With the
Whooping Cough," the managers of
the show are smiling over .the
thoughts of the harvest they can reap
with the show on tour. But Mayor
Gaynor promises to go even further.
He says that the show is not fit for
the American stage and that he feels
it will be his duty to notify his fel
low executives throughout the coun
try that this show should not be per
mitted on any stage. In the mean
time Miss Suratt, who has won fame
for her striking costumes if nothing
else, has also been barred from giv
ing a vaudeville act at Hammerstein's.

The English chemist Dalton was a

laboratory and with crude apparatus,
mostly made by himself from simple
materials. Here is an example describ
ed in his own words:
"Took an ale glass of a conical fig
ure, two and a half Inches in diameter
and three inches deep; filled It with
water that had been standing in the
room and consequently of the tempera
ture of the air nearly; put the bulb of
the thermometer to the bottom of the
glass, the scale being out of the water.
Then, having marked the temperature,
I put the redhot tip of the poker half
an inch deep in the water, holding it
there steadily for half a minute, and
as soon as it was withdrawn I dipped
the bulb of a sensible thermometer
into the water, when it rose in a few
seconds to 180 decrees."
lie then determined the temperature
of the water at the bottom after five
minutes, after -twenty minutes and aft
er an hour an;l found that it rose grad
ually from 47 to r2 degrees. This

No Morals In Dreamland.
If. as many writers have suggested.
It ie the soul itself that guides the im
agery of dreams, how are. we to ex
plain the fact that in this chaos of
ideas and feelings there is so little dis
tinction between right and wrong that
when dreaming we commit acts for
which we should weep tears of blood
were they as real as they seem to be.
As Professor Hoffman has said, "The
familiar check of waking hours, 'I
must not do it because it would be un
just or unkind,' never once seems to
arrest us in the satisfaction of any
whim which may blow about our way
From all of which we must conclude
that the dream realm is a world that is
entirely oblivious to any moral sense
and that, though it may be true that a
troubled conscience may produce or
affect our dreams, the dreams them
selves are never burdened with a con
science. Bohemian Magazine.

Panama, May 14. Acting under
orders of President Taft, the Pana
ma canal fortification committee has
concluded its report of how Uncle Sam
will guard the big ditch in time of
war. President Taft's report is in
the hands of the congressional com
mittee, and action on his recommen
dations is expected by June 1. The
reports do not give the exact locations
of the proposed fortifications, but it
is explained that this cannot be furn
ished until information has been ob
tained regarding the "status and avail
ability of certain parcels of land sit
uated along the route of the canal."
The armament for the proposed for
tifications is enumerated as follows:
Ten fourteen-inch rifles, twelve six
inch rifles and twenty-five twelve
inch mortars. The cost is estimated
in excess of $14,000,000. The report
states that the board has examined
the ground at the termini of the
canal and of territory in the neigh
borhood of the canal's course with a
WXLHAAH, BRIG. CNW LAR&L. cAPTtH,
view of choosing the best sites for the,
big guns. "It is the right and duty
of the United States to defend the
work upon which it is expending such
an enormous sum," the president says
in his message. "An adequate de
fense requires suitable fortifications
near the approaches to the terminal,
i am of the opinion that such works
as may be erected for the defense or
the canal should be completed, occu
pied and ready for operation at th
time the canal itself is completed and
opened to the passage of vessels."
MAULS LITTLE BOY
Charlie King's Example to His
Heathen Brethren Not of
Charles King, the Chinese laundry
man of 222 Wood avenue, touted as a
fine example of what Christianity will
do for celestials, was today fined $50
and costs for beating little Joseph Os
borne of 117 Park avenue several days
ago. King posted bonds of $200 for
his appearance in the court of com
mon please, denying the statements of
the boys who testified against him.
King's trouble with the Osborne
boy, it was shown, grew out of a
scrap in which his two sons, the
King boys who were strangely miss
ing about a year ago, and were be
lieved to have been kidnapped, had be
come involved with other school chil
dren. King blamed the Osborne boy for
his children's troubles, and meeting
him in the street, threw him down,
beat and kicked him as he lay in
the street. The child's injuries were
so severe that he required the atten
tion of a physician.
WORK OF WOMEN'S
The Woman's Relief Corps is an
organization which works quietly and
without ostentation, therefore the
good work being accomplished by it
is not wholly known by the public.
They devote time and money to soothe
the sick and dying, comfort the sor
rowful, and assist and encourage the
unfortunate, beside giving aid in
many ways. .
The society was organized at Den
ver Col., in 1883, with a membership
of 58 and a few dollars, till in 1910
it has enrolled 165,000 members and
expended for relief work over $3,000,

NEW OWLS LOSE
SUIT TO OLD
Illinois Seceders Not Per
mitted to Use the Name
"Owl" for Their Order
The various difficulties -and seces
sions in which the Order ,of Owls has
been involved for sometime, were par
tially resolved a few days since when
an Illinois Court decided that Fred V.
Santer and others, of the American
Order of Owls, cannot use the name
"Owls" in any form in the title of
the order, they conduct. The Amer
ican Owls were seceders from the
South Bend order. The American
Owls have been working under a
charter from the state of Illinois. The
injunction which has been issued
against the American Owls is said to
be final. The Supreme officers of the
old order announce that they will file
a claim for $50,000 damages.

is. affiliated with the old order, will
pay a fraternal visit to New Haven
