John Burroughs Has Vivid Recollec

John Burroughs' recollections of his

"Uncle John tells about her in "John

friend, Dr. Clara Ba rr us.

RECALL FATE OF FRANKLIN
Interesting Relics Recently Brought to
Vancouver From the Land
Where He Perished.
After being In the possession of the
thrifty natives of King William's land
for three-quarters of a century, a
large number of interesting relics of j
the ill-fated Slr John Franklin polar j
expedition have been brought. from
the frozen north by Joe Benard, who
ls here after a four years' stay along
the northernmost coast of the North
American continent, says a Vancouver [ <
(B. C.) dispatch.
Though priceless from a collector's
point of view, the utilitarian value of j
the relics is negligible, and they were
obtained by Benard for a piece of
lumber worth possibly 20 cents on the 1
A few brass buttons among the 1
relics are believed to have belonged to ?
the distinguished leader, though there j
is as yet no positive proof of this
Benard also obtained a number of
primitive scientific instruments used
by the northern tribes. These will be
sold to various museums and univer
sities for which the explorer has been c
collecting ethnological specimens and j
data since 1910. He also bnught a ?
collection of furs worth approximate- j
Sir John Franklin, with 154 com
panions, sailed Into the Arctic in 1845 1
to find the northwest passage, and c
was never heard of again. After many ?
relief expeditions had failed, his fate \
was ascertained in 1859, when bleached t
skeletons were found on the trail to j
The Middle Initial.
With the exception of William H.
Taft, Senator Harding is the first
President since Rutherford B. Hayes,
to use more than one Christian name.
Grover Cleveland, William McKinley,
Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow
Wilson (who dropped his first name
Thomas, early In the career) got along
without middle names or initials. The
middle, initial, incidentally, ls almost
exclusively an American characteris
tic. An Englishman may call himself
John James Smith, but practically nev
er John J. Smith. A Frenchman may
be baptised Auguste Charles Jesus '
Marie Georges Dupont, but he will be I
known to the world as Georges Du
pont, and probably will sign himself I j
The use of more than one given
name is puzzling to a Frenchman.
When Senator Lodge is mentioned in|t
the French press, he is never "M.
Lodge." but "M. Cabot Lodge," or as!

continent as "President Gamaliel Hard

Bokhara in Hands of Reds? \
Nominally the government of Bok- t
hara ls in the hands of the amir, who e
ls an absolute autocrat, but actually i
power ls largely exercised by the Mo- j
haramedan clergy. The houses in thef
capital are closely packed together,
and everyone must be indoors by dusk.
At night the streets are paraded by
police patrols, who beat drums to I
scare away thieves and robbers. The f
city is surrounded by a ruined but still (
strong wall about 7% miles In cir
cumference. It is now reported that
Bokhara has been captured by the
Old Fort Still Useful.
Less than half a century ago al
most every American community west
of the Mississippi was protected
against Indian raids by a fort or stock
ade. Most of these structures have
now fallen Into dust, says Popular
Mechanics Magazine. In southern Utah, 3
however, is a stone structure, i
known as "Cove Port," which was \
built in 1867, at the time of the y
Blackhawk-Mormon war, yet is today
in a s!?te of perfect preservation. It
ls now used, in fact, as a ranch house

LADY HENRY SOMERSET P

News has come of the trans?a'
of another of the great leaders of
temperance reform. On March

Lord Keeper Somers, of whom 1
cauley speaks as "the greatest n
of his age." Her father, Earl Somi
was a student, a traveller, and
friend of men of celebrity, while
stately ancestry of her mother, Co
tess Somers, included a maid in WJ
ing to the unfortunate Queen An1
nette. Thus Lady Henry, as the e
est daughter, was born to an inhc
tance of culture, refinement s
In 1872 she was married to Lc
Henry Somerset, and for seve
years her life was spent in court c
des, Lord Henry being one of 1
officials of Queen Victoria. The wh
and gaity of fashionable life coi
not long be satisfying to one wh(
spiritual nature was of the deep*
and who craved the highest things
this world. When, therefore, a gra
pVrsonal sorrow came into her li:
when the bitter waters of disappoh
ment went over her soul, she gathc
?d strength from trial and brave
kook up the tasks which, in Goc
dealings, had been laid upon her. F

In 1889 she was elected Presiden
>f the British Woman's Temperanc

nade Lady Henry Vice President, and
>n the death of Miss Frances E. Wil
ard in 1898, she succeeded to the

The thorough knowledge which
jady Henry had of the drinking hab
ts of English women, and the hold
vhich-it has upon their lives, led her
o found "The Industrial Farm Colo
?y," where women were treated for
Irunkenness. The Colony, situated in
)uxhurst, consisted of 200 acres of
>eautiful grounds. Gardening, fruit
mltivation, care of bees, raising of
joultry, seed sorting, basket making,
inen weaving, and laundry work,
vere the avocations which furnished
he patients out-door exercise and
smployment. IA particularly interest
ng feature of Duxhurst was "The
?lest," a permanent home forchil
Iren rescued from vicious-homes and
ntlemperance. A beautiful church
lecorated with work modeled by Lady
?enry, and a well equipped hospital,
ormed part of the Colony buildings.
)ut of the 144 inmates treated in one
rear, 125 were women who were en
irely cured and who later lived indus
rious lives. Lady Henry devoted
ime, money and strength to .building
ip the splendid work of this Colony,
vhich, through her untiring efforts,
vas recognized as a powerful factor
n helping to solve the drink habit in
5reat Britain. .
This gifted woman was for many
rears a regular contributor to news
>apers and magazines. ' There has
>een no worker for our cause who
las written more pronouncedly in fa
'or of the franchise and labor ques
ions; as well as that of total absti
?ence, and whose articles have been
more widely copied or more exten
sively noticed by the press.
On her first visit to America, in
1891, Lady Henry met Frances E.
Willard, in whose life and work she
had already become greatly interest
ed, and the friendship thus formed
between the two world leaders was
deep, lasting and tender. Miss Wil
lard and Miss Gordon were her guests
at Eastnor Castle and Reigate for
months at a time.
Lady. Henry was ? genial com
rade, intensely sympathetic in nature,
a?d loyal to her friends, thus com
bining those rare qualities which
made friends for her the world over.
A member of the Church of England,
she extended helpful hands to all men
and women who were working in the
cause of Christ, and obedient to the
Mar r's call, she carried into her
daily life the precepts of the Golden
Rule.-Palmetto White Ribbon.
HONORED NAME IN MEDICINE
Henry Detwller, Native of Switzerland,
the First to Practice Homeopathy
Among the first. If not the first, to
successfully practice homeopathy In
America was Henry Detwiler, who
was born in Langenbruck, Switzerland,
December 18, 1795.
He studied medicine a number of
years before he came to this country
on a vessel containing 400 French ref

defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte. He was
appointed ship physician, and success

Coming to Pennsylvania, he settled
in the Lehigh Valley, and gained promi
nence* by treating a large number of
people who were attacked with a mys
terious disease which he finally diag
nosed as bilious colic, resulting from
eating apple butter.
He early made a study of the sys
tem medicine founded by Hahne
niann, and in 1828 dispensed the first
remedy in Pennsylvania, in accordance
with the law of similars, and during
the remainder of his life was a devoted
Doctor Detwller formed an intimate
acquaintance with Hahnemann, who
gave him a wonderful reception in
Paris, where he met other noted phy

natural history specimens to various
colleges, founded an iron industry and

Pueblo-Type Cottages Are Cement
All the quaint charm of the old pu
ebro style of architecture ls preserved
in concrete in a series of little cot
tages now under construction in Mon
rovia, Cal. The one-story buildings
are most remarkable for their complete
use of cement, woodwork being prac
tically eliminated. Even the roofs are
concrete, and the doors are made of
magnesite, according to an illustrated
article in the January Popular Me
chanics Magazine. The poured walls,
five Inches thick, inclose a web of
waterproofing material, while the ce
ment floors are stained in Spanish
leath?r effect, waxed and polished. The
little structures are wholly fireproof,
and easy cleaning ls assured by the ab
sence of moldings, casing and base
boards. Inclosed courts off the kitch
en and sleeping chamb?rs, partly
roofed and partly screened, provide
outdoor protection and privacy.
