V- 1 *«Cs' 4 Early has never believed he had leprosy ana though frequent examina tions have all been to ihe same otfect he has never given up the hope that Ht some time he would be free from his solitary existence and be allowed to fcnlngle with his fellow men. Last Sunday night an eminent New HTork leper specialist. Dr. Bulkley, paid SCarly a visit privately and without the permission of the board of health, al though a constant guard is maintained over Early. He gave Early a thorough .•lamination and took a culture from (the patient's forehead. Early has pls*oed great confidence In the decision fof this eminent specialist, who, while pefcurlng to state definitely that he did »ot have leprosy until he should have jtostad the culture, still extendedi un- rual hope to John Early. Er. Fowler, who has charge of the ^contagious disease branch of the health .department, is Just as certain today as Hhe -was when Early was placed In quar frantlne that the former Salvationist j«nd soldier has leprosy, but if he had '•not the disease, Dr. Fowler asserted, he LlWoakl be only too glad to have him re leased from his present abode. Both the ^health officer and Dr. Fowler think the Wp^clallst who took the culture found [that Early had leprosy, believing that otherwise a fovorable conclusion would have been reported before today, the culture having been taken last Sun !day. Before going to the leper house, Dr. Fowler was Inclined to discredit the ^report of a specialist having been at Early's house last Sunday, but upon .reaching the house Early did not hesi tate to say he had been visited and gave the name of the New Yory phy sician as the men who had paid the Visit Dr. Fowler admitted that he thought Early looked much better than he did when he was placed in quaran tine, but he also contended, the evi dences of leprosy are ntlll there.

Forget 1fe Ittavc Sp«*ci^ Prices on Our Work Now '1 s,'' Washington, D. C., May 25.—For over A year John Early, his wife and baby have lived the lives of outcasts In the very heart of the country. Early had a varied career before he was con demned to the life of a leper under the direction of the Washington board of health. He at one time worked In a pulp mill In North Carolina. Then he |nllsted as a ooldier and when discov ered to be a leper, at the authorities then thought and still maintain, he was in the salvation army. ^£szy' **, J. C. DURKEE & CO. Is John Early a Leper or Martyr to Ignorance 1 -y r-ifc John Early Matsd in his twit on the out^cirts of Washington. Ills wife baby. reported he had a typical case of the disease. They were men who had seen cases of leprosy." Early was found in front of his house this morning when Dr. Fowler and a reporter called to see him. With him was Harry O. Brown, one of the three watchmen employed to prevent him from coming in contact with other persons, while a short distance away were the members of Early's family. Early did not hesitate to furnish the name of the specialist and to say that the latter was in hip quarters long enough to make an examination of him and take a culture from his forehead. That Early believes he Is not afflict ed with" leprosy was made plain to the reporter, who visltM the camp and conversed with him. "I believe," he said, "that the red dish brown splotches on me came from working in the pulp mill In North Carolina. There was a strong acid used there in powdered form and I believe it is responsible for all my troubles. I am satisfied it is not leprosy." iAsked about his condltjon^ Early said he felt perfectly "wetlH only ailment being a touch of malaria, which he at tributed to the marshes and dump so near his house. Mosquitoes were more than plentiful about his house last evening and he thought they might carry disease. He had used no medi cine since November, he said, adding that medicine given him when he was placed in quarantine upset his stomach so much that he knew- he cotilfl not ward off any disease. He would not discuss the visit of the specialist any more than to say he was an eminent man In his profession. He felt that the result of the investigation would show he was not afflicted with the leprosy. It was stated that a report from the specialist was expected in the near future, and It was thought he would probably pay Early another visit soon. Early works in his, garden and about the lawn, and also looks after hliS chickens. A watchman Is on duty about the vicinity of his house at all hours, and persons who call are per mitted to converge with him at a safe distance. Early never misses an oppor tunity to discuss religious matters with his callers, saying he believes his mis sion on earth is to save souls and do good. His house Is but a short distance from the water, where Its occupant has a good view of the Anacostia river and freight tracks of the Pennsylvania railway. He hopes he will not have to remain there much longer. A, for new customers this Grade is for regular trade this Grade ,is for itinerants.

New Tork, May 25.—The most Im portant post In the immigration system of the country, that of commissioner of Immigration at Ellis Island, is to have a new head. President Taft has sent the name of William Williams of this olty t-^ the senate and It will be rati fied in due time. Mr. Williams suc ceeds Robert Watchorn, who has re ceived much criticism during the past few weeks. The following statement was given out at the White House co incident with the appointment of Mr. Williams: 'This post has been recently held by Robert Watchorn, whose administra tion of the office proved to be unsat isfactory to the president and the sec retary of commerce and labor although there have been interested in his re tention a number of good people who did not understand the facts in respect to the condition of the office. Mr. Wachorn's resignation was not re quested, but he was under investiga tion by Mr. Nagel, the secretary of commerce and labor, and his course in office was the subject of Inquiry at the time he tendered and insisted upon his resignation. His resignation was ac cepted for the good of the service. "Mr. Williams has had a very long and thorough service in the adminis tration of this office, and resigned it voluntarily to resume the practice of law in New York city. The president and the secretary were anxious to have the office administered with a single view to its efficiency in the enforce ment of the Immigration laws and to a proper protec.ion of the immigrants coming into this country Mr. Wil liams' record in his previous adminis tration insures this result. Mr. Wil liams is a Yale man and a friend of the president's, and was not a candi date for appointment, but most reluc tantly yielded to the Insistence of the president and the secretar. that he take the office in order to put it again on a proper basis. 2. "It has been reported that Mr. Watchorn's resignation was due to political exigency. This statement is uterly unfounded, and the appointment of Mr. Williams is the most complete refutation of that statement that could be made. The secretary of commerce and labor and Mr. Williams have had conferences about the administration of Ellis Island and are in complete ac cord as to how the island*?«hQUld b« administered." ffi- 1 In the Interurban wreck near here yes terday in which Henry Carlson an i William Cornwall were.

C' Wauwatosa, Wis., May 26.—In the filing of a suit for absolute divorce against Elmer' E. Cain of Milwaukee, the remarkable story of alleged abuse and neglect of a former society girl of this city isj laid bare. iftrR. Caine was formerly Miss Kitty Livingston and was well known and popular in this city. Elmer E. Cain was formerly a member of the Wis consin legislature and assessor of Wau watosa. The downfall of pretty Kittly Livingston led from one step to another until last October she was arrested with Mr. Cain in Chicago. The couple were arrested- by central station detectives at the Randolph hote.1. and upon investigation it was charged by the detectives before Judge Dicker that Cain, who had eloped with Miss Livingston, had been living In idleness for over a month, depending upon the girl's wits to support him. It developed that Cain was compel ling her to support him by begging in the streets and the files also charge the young women with pilfering pock etbooks and hand bags in downtown department stores. Only the pitiful pleading of Mrs. Liv ingston saved the couple from prose cution. It developed that the girl had gone to the central police station and even begged assistance from detectives. Arrangements were made whereby she was to be cared for at the Briggs house. ....... The dectectlves becoming suspicious, followed her to the Randolph hotel, where they arrested her and Cain. ?a. «'.• s*-j,Tr Vi'.' »4/ j& NOTED AERONAUT WILL TRY TO SIGNAL MARS FROM HI8 AIRSHIP. A.

You ought to be in the penetentiary," said Mrs. Livingston to Cain while he was locked up at the Harrison street police sta tion. Mrs. Ethed Klemp, 3431 Claremont avenue, and Mrs. Elizabeth Whitley of Joliet, 111., were induced to drop charges of theft against Miss Livings ton and she and Cain were given their freedom.

After a certain height I take a little every now and then, anyway. "As far as I am concerned," Mr. Stevens continued, reverting to the Mars experiments, "I know little or nothing of the manner In which Pro fessor Todd intends to try to learn if the other planet is inhabited. I un derstood from what he said that his efforts will be to catch some sound or sound vibrations with some ex ceedingly delicate instruments that he will carry.
