A good sized, intelligent audience attended the lecture of Carol Norton, of New York, at the Gennett theater yesterday afternoon. The people gave him the closest attention for an hour and a half, as he talked of Chris tian Science in choice language and explained its fundamental doctrines in a most masterful manner. There is no doubt that many who have here tofore considered it only in a super ficial way left with greatly enlarged views of its faith and doctrines. He claimed to preach the gospel of righteousness and health, and declared that Christian Science is a plea for common sense in religion. The central thought of his discourse was that the world has drifted away from the clearly marked doctrines nd. steadfast faith of prim- z.e Christianitv and we have not laid ldupon the teachings and promises Christ made to his disciples. He proved clearly from the Scriptures that God is not only for the moral and spiritual side of our life, but is also for the physical well being of all his children, that Jesus promised his fol lowers the power to do even greater works than he did in healing the sick and casting out devils. He said that Christianity had lost , its birthright simply for want of faith; but claimed that the doctrines of Christian Science were calculated to bring "the world back to the simplicity and strength of primitive Christianity. He held Jesus up as the great demonstra tor who came to restore the race to its temporarily- lost dominion. He said that the Master came waging war against the . old Adamic condi tions, and that today the great prob lem of life is how to regain our right ful inheritance. Mr. Norton has been engaged in this work for about fifteen years, and he says Christian Science is standing the test, and thousands have come out of the orthodox churches to be members of Bible Christianity. DAITOlTClOL Panic Among 400 Pupils, all Of Whom Escaped, Except a Crippled Girl. Dayton, O., Jan. IS. The Allen school building had the interior burn ed out today by fire originating in the basement. A panic resulted among the 400 pupils. All escaped in safety except Edna Baum, first grade, a cripple, who was thrown down and trampled. She is fatally hurt.

ADOLPH SCHLEISCHER Appointed Chief Engineer, Who Will Also be Supervising Engineer of Construction. Last Saturday at the meeting of the Columbus, Greensburg & Richmond Traction company, held in Indianapo lis, a contract was made with Jeup & Moore, engineers of the following elec tric roads to do the engineering of the company: Indianapolis & Eastern Railway company, Greenfield to Dublin, Ind., and New Castle, Ind. Indianapolis, Danville & Rockville Railway company. New Albany, Paoli & French Lick Valley Traction company. The Madisonville Traction company, Louisville, Ky. The French Lick & West Baden Railway company. The survey will be started within ten days, beginning at Columbus, and going east. Within ninety days they will be in possession of all the maps and profiles, estimates and plans, at which time the letting of contracts for actual construction will be taken up. As we stated Saturday the capital of the company has been authorized increased from $1,000,000 to $2,500, 000, while the financial condition is all that could be asked for. It is very evident this road means business, for we have the assurance that no unnecessary delays will be tol erated. It is said, and we believe it to be a fact, that this company has done more work since the 15th of Septem ber, the day on which the first work was done, than any other company in the state has accomplished in a year. This speaks well for the excellent management of Mr. C. N. Wilson, who is nothing if he is not the very em bodyment of ambition and energy. The Engineer. An official announcement was given out Saturday night, saying that Adolph Schleischer had been appoint ed chief civil engineer of the com pany. He will, also be the . supervis ing engineer of construction and who will accompany the surveying corps under the management of Jeup & Moore. So it will be seen at a glance that the new company means business, and Richmond will do well to use her of- forts to assist the company in every way. II MOVE Councilman Neal Will Ask Fora Pavilion Charles S. Neal, councilman from the sixth ward, will introduce a mo tion in council tonight asking the city of Richmond and the three traction companies centering here to erect in Glen Miller a pavilion for chautauqua and other like purposes to be under the supervision of the city of Rich mond, and the railroad companies to have no interest in the concern, only from the standpoint of a test of en- 4 Tl. o and should be encouraged. Mr. Neal's move in this matter is commendable. UNITED WORKERS CONVENTION Indianapolis, Ind., Jan. 18.

THE RIGHT OF NIGHTS WILL BE THE MRS. SUE HAR RINGTON FURBECK, CON TRALTO, AND THE SPIERING QUAFTET RECITAL At the Gennett Theater Tomorrow Night The Society Hit of the Season. The Musical club will give its an nual artists' recital at the Gennett theater tomorrow night, when the Spiering 'quartet will make its second appearance in this city.

DON'T FORGET SPIERING QUARTET TUESDAY NIGHT. PERITONITIS SEND WORDS BY LIGHTNING TO CARRY FIFTY WORDS A SECOND NOT A DREAM AT ALL Inventor Delany Has Astounded the Experts by His Claims, But Has His Apparatus About Com plete to Prove Them. Philadelphia, Jan. 10. Sending and receiving three thousand words a minute over a telegraph wire is an easy trick, according to 'Patrick B. Delany, inventor of the Rapid Auto matic Telegraph System. It isn't a dream, for he performed the feat, or rather the implements did, just to show what could be done. The present rate of handling com mercial business over telegraph wires is something like fifteen words a min ute. "Press," or newspaper matter, usually sent by a cleverly devised code that condenses whole sentences into three or four letters, cannot now be handled with greater rapidity than an average of 2,500 words an hour. The fastest operator in the country sent 3,000 words in a single hour in a trial for record, but eyen he does not claim it could be kept up beyond one hour. The sending apparatus of the De lany system is a box-like device into which a tape of paper is reeled, and which cuts tiny round holes in the paper in response to pressure on keys arranged like those on a typewriter. The symbols thus made, by a plan of double dots and the spacing of the perforations, form a Morse alphabet in holes. As these holes pass under a delicate pair of electric "brushes" they open and break the current, wThieh causes the communication, just as the hand of an operator on a key opens and closes the circuit for short and long periods which make the dots and dashes forming the Morse code. Receiving is accomplished in any one of three ways. The first is in tended to be the most practical for the rapid system. It is the recording of the message in written "Morse," the same as is used at present on the Wheatstone method. As the inter ruptions of the current occur, they affect two little steel fingers or prongs that rest upon a chemically prepared tape fed into the receiver. Between them is a needle or stylus, which dis colors the chemical solution on the tape and marks it with the dots and dashes of "Morse." These dots and dashes, transcribed into letters and figures in the hands of experts, are delivered as the ac tual messages, or the stripes of holes can be taken to another sender and forwarded to a branch office. If so desired, the same yards of holes can be placed on a sending apparatus and ticked off as slowly as required into the ear of a receiver who isn't both ered w ith a stress of business in the same clicks that spell out words to an odinary operator by the present method, only with perfect precision instead of the unsteadiness which is absolutely unavoided by human agen cy. It is the ultimate design of Inven tor Delany to make of his system a "telepost" by which correspondence will be conducted with the swiftness of lightning, so that whole letters may be forwarded to distant points and answers received within a few minutes. That this can be accom plished he is entirely sanguine, and that the rate of such communication will be brought to a very low figure he argues from the tremendously in creased capacity for handling busi ness on the same equipment as now exists. Hodge Yates. Mr. Omar Hodge and Miss Florence Yates were married Saturday evening at S:30 at their newly furnished home, on north D street. The cere mony was performed by Rev. M. E. Nethercut.
