DIARY TEILS OF
Educated Man's Struggles Against Impulse to Kill or to Commit Suicide. (Rpeclal Cable to The Times-Dispatch.) London, July 29.?An educated man's diary of growing madnesa and struggling against the Impulse to kill or commit suicide was read ut the Old Bailey, when the mystery of the cyclist highwayman was solved. It will bo recalled that Mr. Saul Splitter, a motorcyclist, riding toward* Barnct late one night, was overtaken by a man on a bicycle, with whom he conversed, and who suddenly shot at htm several time, shouting. "Your money or your life!" The assailant George Douglas Hay. aged twenty four, was brought to trial on Satur? day, when Dr. Dyer, of Urlxton Prison, who described the case as unique, read passages from Hay's life story, written by himself. Dr. Dyer presumed that Hay was an illegitimate child. Inheriting high Intellectual faculties. He had n<> doubt now that he was of unwound mind. The diary, divided into periods' of years, ran as follows: 17 to la?begin to develop aversion to society and tendency to withdraw into shell; pass through short un? healthy period of most perfervld re Ugious devotion; tako special treat? ment for stammering, resulting In temporary cure. Return of stammer; consequent sense of something quick? ens my longing for isolation, and I take situation as postman in tiny remote village. 19 to 22?Become depressed as stammer gets worse. Continue to live in village as much a stranger as I entered; byperaenslU veness b'ecomes exquisite; meditate constantly on the fatuity of life. Live now absolutely ! alone. 22 to 24?The suspicion begins to grow that my stammer is not the root of all my trouble, but is merely tht manifestation of tome deeper psychic malady. Placed myself in the hands of a specialist for treatment by Pro? fessor Freud's t-yatcm of psycho-an? alysis, and return apparently cured. Horrified to detect after few months of lirst normal existence I ever en? joyed?namely my Immunity from mental ailments, etc?signs of return ; of my affliction. Discovery of certain things bring; home the realization that 1 am a close "introspectlonisl," and forthwith begin to practice It consciously with an Intensity never known. To master my enemies, I had to compel myself, through agonizing ment.il exercises, the least drastic of all of which was daily an hour or two's lntensest auto? suggestion. So excruciating became the nervous tension, when in the pres? ence of other people, that 1 was now driven to carry my revolver with me. It was necessary for me. In the con? flict of personality, absolutely to dominate myself. That was the only test of whether I was succeeding in killing my psychic enemies in the in? ternal struggle. And I knew or In? stinctively felt that if I stayed in the presence of any one. the conflict, at first subconscious, would Inevitably end in his killing me or my killing blm During these terrible months I spent hours daily in the Innermost self dissection and self-susgestion. lying for hours In the privacy of my bedroom in eemi-trance. with every faculty suspended save my thoughts, which wrestled till I seemed to agonize. The very quivering tissues of my Inmost being seemed to be laid eo open and exposed that I actually experienced physical pain from sounds ?as a footfall. To the prisoner's counsel. Dr. Dyer *ald: It is possible for a man to be conscious that he has a mental In? firmity, and that it is growing on him, and to struggle against it. It Is piti? able, the details the prisoner has told mt. 0f?the Impulses which have been welilng up In his life dliring the last eighteen months, and the terrible struggle he has had to keep them down. The Jury returned a verdict of guilty, but Insane, and the prisoner ?was ordered to be detained during His Majesty's pleasure. BOMMSStVILLB IS ELECTED _ . PRESIDENT OF SEMINARY f Special to The Times-Dispatch.] Uewlsburg, W. Va.. July 29.?At a recent meeting her? the board of trustees of Lew isburg Seminary elected R. C. Soinmervllle, of Savannah, Ga., president of the seminary to succeed Dr. R. L. Telford. who resigned not long ago. Dr. Tclford's resignation, which caused general regret, was accepted with reluctance. In view of the many years of earnest and successful effort which he had devoted to the upbuilding of the School, but the board believes that In Mr. Sommer vllle. It has found n man who Is well fitted to take up Dr. Tclford's work and carry It forward with energy and wisdom. Mr. Sommerville Is a native of Virginia, end a graduate of Hampden-Sldney (A. B.

The new president already has started an actlvo campaign in the Interest of the sem? inary, and the prospect It that the next ses? sion, beginning September 13, will be a most Successful one. Crops PracUcally Rptned. (Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.J Arvonla, Va., July 2?.? Owing to the long eontlnued drought crops throughout this section of the State, except In very low and moist places, have been practically ruined. The corn crop, which, in spite of the dry weather, looked well up to two weeks ago, has been blasted on all highlands, nod the ? talks are now drying up. Tobacco Is suf? fering dreadfully, and farmers are com? plaining that unless rain comes within a week tho crop will be a total failure. Gardens have long ago dried completely up. Some people have planted and replant? ed vegetables thro of four times, only to have them parched completely by the sun before t|iey could reach maturity. . In the upper sections of Buckingham coun? ty the drought has been worse than else? where in this section, practically al crops having been burnt up. The dust In this sec? tion I* several Inches deep In the roads, and traveling Is difficult. In 'May the rainfall, measured, was only half an Inch: In June only three Inches, and up to thtt time in July only l.M inches have fallen, making a total for three months of lass than tho average for one month. Members of tho alfalfa clubs, in.tplto of ge weather conditions, ere preparing to ox riment with the crop, and are getting sir lands Into condition tor seeding -be? tween August 16 and September 14. TUB HOTEL. COTTAGE HOMES AT OTTERBURN (Continued From First Page.) the novel scheme that entered Into the minds of the new owners of the prop? erty when they acquired it and the success of that novelty Is Interesting from an Industrial standpoint. One of the Incorpurators of the new company advanced the Idea that hero within thirty-seven miles of itichmond on a railway that runs six or mure pas? senger trains Into and as many out ot Richmond every day, there could be and ought to be established here a j Richmond colony of summer cottagers. The Idea took well with the then small company of stockholders, and to clinch the matter they bought the ! seventy acres of beautifully wooded and ' shaded land surrounding the springs property, and these seventy ucres have been laid off Into avenues, and 350 lots, 50x150 feet. In time, these lots are expected to be utilized by business men who will erect cot? tages on them for summer homes for their families. In such summer homes the cottagers, the owners and dwellers can run their own household, and cooking ami eating arrangements, or they can live In their own cottages and board at the hotel, and In either event have all the privileges of the springs and the benefit of all the recreation the springs alford. The Plan Succeeds. To carry out this plan the stock was Increased and the first arrange? ment was to give to each stockholders a cottage lot with each $100 share of stock purchased, and thus It became a real estate proposition. However, it Is plain enough that It was not a speculative proposition, the Idea being not to make money by lot sales, but to encourage and Insure the creation of a summer cf'.sjty at Ottcrburn. The ride from Richmond to the place 1 of hut an hour's dura? tion, and the schedules are now accommodating that one can make the trip four times a day If need he, and tin- commutation rate Is only 14 cents per trip. iuite as cheap as street car fare, distance?thirty-seven miles?be? ing considered. I The plan worked well, far better than the brilliant originator of the Idea really expected, end very many I lots were taken upd which cottages 1 will be built before the opening of I the next senson. Some have already I been built and others started. I The Summer Capital. I am Informed that the board of directors have now decided to hold this free lot proposition open only j short time longer, and on and after September 15. the remaining lots will be placed on sale at J100 per lot. > Until that time the old proposition j of a lot thrown In with every share I of stock will hold good, because fair dealing and common courtesy demand j that ample notice In a change In tho advertised plan should be given. Less than fifty shares of stock, so I am told, remain to be sold, and to each of these the free lot proposition holds good If tho transaction la closed before the 15th of September. The management shows a balance sheet which proves that the stock 1b worth par without the lot. and it is certain that If the "colony Idea" gets well fixed In the minds of Richmond folks the lots will be worth the $100 ? and more In the days to come. It Is Interesting to note that tho guests at Otterburn and the cottage dwellers there are, strictly speaking, s Richmond colony, and as 1 predicted last spring. Otterburn is rapidly be? coming the summer capital of Vir? ginia. Al.FAI.t A GROWING IN HALIFAX. V Large Club at Work In the Interest of Mure Good Hay. Suuih Boston.

No greater evidence of the increas? ing wealth of Southern farmers could be asked than this gain of over $627, 000. 000 In the value of farm buildings in ten years that has meant a vast Improvement to existing farm huild tngs and a great Increase In the num? bers of new farm buildings. These figures are eloquent of better farm dwellings and of more farm dwellings, of a higher standard of dwellings and of the comforts of living that have come from Increased agricultural pros? perity.
