The little fellows were studied with reference to their reactions to light, heat, and chemicals. The slides were, projected upon a screen so that the results were easily seen. In this connection Dr. Young also expplained the theory of "motor" reaction, as advanced by Pro fessor Jennings, of Pennsylvania, and of the Smithsonian institute at Wash ington. to explain how the lower or ganisms, though deprived of any ner vous system, move toward or away from the source of stimulus.

Though It is sixteen years since the great International Dictionary was first published and it Is some time since the supplement In the back part of this book has been revised yet there are many who think no other lit book exists. The unabridged dictionary is such an extensive work that it would be a laborious task to critically ex amine it hence the general public have no disposition to do so. However, since several publishers have come in. to competition they arc finding many glarlng errors in- the International. Chiefest, It seems, of all Is the fact that the people have been pay ing a very exorbitant price for pres tige. Greed, it seems, knows no bounds.

There was an Inclination and a purpose to butcher him on the spot, but he was a Colonial officer, a soldier under the laws of war, and en titled to be treated as such. It was finally agreed, therefore that he should be tied and taken to the nearest Brit ish post But there was no rope. A young man named Booth, a Tory, said he would go home and get a pair of cotton lines, used in those days for ploughing. 'I'd give,' and he grinned at Ryan 'a whole season in the corn field to see that old tied.' He brought the lines, and Ryan was sent off.In some way he got loose. Was rescued, maybe. The first thing he did was to notify Booth that he meant to kill him. Booth hid in the wcods and Ryan couldn't find him. "It was late in the spring, when, one morning before the break of day. Ryan buried his musket in a pile of dead leaves and climbed a bushy poplar tree near Booth's house. He waited all day. Women went to the spring to get water, balancing the buckets on their heads, as is the practice in the south, and one of them put out a wash. Ryart kept on watching there in the tree. "About an hour before sundown a sister of Booth went along the grass bordered path to the spring. She had a wooden water bucket in her hand, and Ryan, right above iter, among the branches, saw something in it. When she got to the spring she looked cau tiously about Seeing, hearing noth ing, she took a tin bucket out of the wooden one and started off into the forest. Ryan slid from the tree, found his gun and stalked her as he would a deer. "She came to a log, where her broth er met her. He ate and she talked. Ryan purposely made a noise and they looked and saw him. musket in hand, only a few feet away. They fell on their knees and pleaded, but Ryan killed Booth right there, in the pres ence of his sister. My grandfather named his son after Ryan, and the son, my father, gave the name to me." His Father. "And your father?" I asked. "He was a cotton planter, with 1,800 acres of land, and about fifty slaves. At his death—I was two years old—my mother took up his family and business burdens. I was the youngest of nine living children, and two were dead. She added to her real and chattel pro perty until she had several plantations some 3,500 acreB of land in all, and a hundred slaves. The average value of slaves, old and young, men and women was, I should say, $1,000. "My brother, a brilliant man, never could go to an auction without buying afield hand or two. In fact, he spec ulated in them, getting them near our home and taking them to Texas and Louisiana.

MORROW Going into a fence corner for a fig ure of speech—it scarcely could be called a flower—Senator Benjamin R. Tillman said: "I grew up as wild as a jlmson weed In some respects." He had been talking of his childhood. First, however, he told why Ryan had been made apart of his baptismal name. Now and then he took off one of his slippers and scratched the sole of his foot. "The Ryan in my name came from an old Whig captain who served in the Revolutionary War," he said. "He was a neighbor of my grandfather and a terrible man against the Tories. There were many Tories in South Carolina They were a third of the population, guess. Ryan was a terror in all that region. The Tories fled to the timber, with him in pursuit. After the British captured Charleston, the Whigs and old Ryan took to the woods.

So she came to owe $20,000, slaves being rather a drug in the market at that time, and I was taken from school that I might help her. I rode about the country for a year, paying bills and cancelling notes. Through her busi ness genius and my activity we re duced her indebtedness to $5,000," "Where did you go to school?"

I boarded with an old teacher I who was very poor. I didn't want to hurt his feeling by quitting his house I or telling him the truth, but I didn't get enough to eat. My luncheon was a corn muffin and a bottle of sorghum molasses. I thought of the hams, I chickens and good things at home, and was hungry, but not unhappy.

"I went to a mill pond one day with a number of companions, and re mained in the water for three hours. While walking home In hot sun I felt a pain in my left eye. I supposel was run down by the hard work at school and by the want of wholesome and nu tritious food. My eye becoming worse a physician was called. He said I had erysipelas. I suffered awfully, and finally my mother sent to Augusta, thirteen miles distant, for a doctor whom we always consulted in serious cases. He confirmed the diagnosis of the other doctor. Well, in ten days, perhaps, my eye burst. Then it was found that I had a fibroid tumor, the growth of which had caused me intense agony and destroyed my eye. "I was il a long time. The war came to an end, but I had taken no part in it. I helped my mother In the management of her affairs, and then bought a plantation in Florida.
