No vandal eye, however, will be per mitted to gaze upon the nndraped loveliness of the statue which set all jWashlngtou talking last fall. The caretaker of the Barney-Hemmlck home has not forgotten the stir the statue caused and the order of the chief of police, Major Richard Sylves ter, which caused It to be boxed and taken Indoors. The Improvised fence of barrel staves which the caretaker erected last year between the lawn and the street, where thousands gath ered to gaze on the statue, has been replaced by a high concrete wail, pen etrated only by a gateway. Hence only those who have field glasses and residences which command a view of the Barney-Hemmlck backyard will be able to see the statue. Talented and vivacious Mrs. Barney-Hemmlck (It was only last spring she was married in Paris to Christian Hemmlck, thirty live' years her Junior) bas returned from Europe with her husband. Mrs. Barney, the mother, was much put out by the stir made by the statue. The Barney family pooh pooh the Idea that the statue was Inspired by or represents Miss Natalie Barney. They say a professional model was used by Miss Laura Barney, as she then was, who maintains a .studio In Paris.

That the gambols of electricity are most fearful and wonderful was Illus trated In the month of June, 1873, when, according to Flammarlon, the electric current entered a butcher's shop and followed the Iron bara from which the quarters of meat were hung until It reached a hook on which the skinned carcass of a whole ox was suspended.

Some results of the work being done by the Touring Club of America In conjunction with the Amer ican Association for Highway Im provement toward educating the pub lic to the value of Improved highways throughout the country are illustrated In a chart JuBt prepared by the United States office of public roads, which shows that nearly fifteen thousand miles of transcontinenal, Interstate and trunk line roads are contemplated in various sections of the country.

Twenty per cent ol the roads in each state could be Improved by an expenditure of an aver age sum of three million dollars state and the annual saving thereby in the wear and tear on horses, wag ons and automobiles in the transport tlon of crops and Increased land val ues is estimated at over one million dollars. Proof That Mine Blew Up the Maine THE Maine was destroyed by an ex ternal explosion. There no longer remains any doubt as to the manner Jn which the United States battleship "was sunk in Havana harbor on Feb ruary 15, 1898.

This confirms the report and testimony which Ensign Powel son gave before the Investigating board after the disaster and whlcb was based upon the reports made to him by divers Just after the explosion, Military experts who Inspected the vessel recently found that the bottom of the ship stands In a perpendicular position, supported by stanchions. -The lowest, or vlatform, deck Is an up- frttjuve influence.

Philadelphia, Pa. Investigating the death of an Infant that was found scantily clad and drenched by the rain. In an alley here, Coroner Ford made the startling discovery that there exists in Philadelphia a baby farm where innocent babes are bar tered and sold. While the coroner listened aghast he heard from Special Agent Kinkald of the Society to Protect Children From Cruelty, that women have at tempted to coerce men Into matrimony by getting babies from the farm and foisting them off as . their offspring upon the men whom they sought to wed. From the lips of Lillian Hlnkle, he learned that she hSA purchased a baby tor five dollars from the baby .farm. The woman was held, charged with the death of the child, by Coroner Ford, by special request of Assistant District Attorney Patterson, without ball, to await the action of the grand Jury. With the Hinkle woman was held Edwin Rose, who gave the same ad dress as the woman. He was charged with being implicated with the girl and was not admitted to ball. It was brought out In the testimony that Rose and the Hlnkle woman had been en gaged to marry, but that the union was opposed by the young man's family.

The position of this part of the bottom, experts declare, Indi cates that what is now the highest point originally and structurally occu pied a position at about frame 18. This suggests that there was an explosion of a. mine under that part of the ship, say about midway between the stem and the midship section. The explosion, experts believe, broke tbe ship Into two parts, throwing one section, Including the conning tower, toward the stern, the conning tower falling on the superstructure on the starboard side. From this position, In cutting away the wreckage, it bas been allowed to settle to tbe main deck slightly forward of the after tur ret, which is on the port side. Thus the tower is on the opposite -side to that on which tbe explosion took place. It Is a confirmed belief that such a tearing of the ship's bottom could not have been produced by an interior ex plosion. It Is further said that no reg ulation military mine could have wrought such terrific bavoo.

Ar mor piercing torpedoes of this new type, It is claimed, can be fired from battleships, torpedo boats and sub marine jubes at a range of Dearly sevenx miles with the same accuracy that projectiles are burled from guns. Some time ago it was learned by the naval authorities that foreign tor pedo companies bad developed tor pedoes with a range of 8,000 yards, - and that some of the powers had . placed orders for this class of projec tiles. It became apparent that some thing must be done to meet this In crease in tbe strength of other navlea.
