SEX IN BRAINS A Woman Not Afraid of Her Subject HELEN GARDENER'S WORK HER LIFE DEVOTED TO THE REFUTATION OF FALLACY A Fen Picture of the Interesting Woman Who Lectures at Unity Church This Evening As she sat rocking slowly to and fro In her pleasant rooms at the Van Nuys hotel yesterday afternoon, her finger* caressing some beautiful pink carna tions that had Just been sent to her, Helen H. Gardener presented as bonny, dainty and unassuming a picture of graceful femininity as ever tackled the serious and vexing questions of sex in brain cells, the modification of heredi tary traits or the various sociological problems with which she has coped so successfully as to command the respect of the most noted scientists of both con tinents. Shortly after her birth, In Virginia about 39 years ago, her father, a Metho dist clergyman who had inherited slaves, set them free and moved with them and his family into Indiana. There the daughter early showed signs of having a clear, reasoning, logical brain, and she was nicknamed' by her brothers "Robin," because her eyes and mouth were always wide open. She saw an.l heard everything that went on about her, and her busy brain applied the knowledge in ways unusual to childhood She never cared for the society of chil dren of her own age, but rather that of older people. When she was 14 she was visiting ir. the home of a prominent newspaper man in Cincinnati, where a little coterie of writers met periodically, read articles in the scientific magazines and held in formal and impromptu discussions. It was at one of these, Mrs. Gardener pays, to which by special request she was allowed to be present, that she heard a discussion on the relation of woman hto crime,, and that set her brair which w as mature beyond her years, into an active train of thought which hat kept pace with her growth and actuated her In her work along the various lines In which she has now become so poteni a factor for good. In appearance Mrs. Gardener Is any thing but a "new" or "strong minded" woman, as such terms are generally un derstood. She is short in stature, slight of build, with an oval, refined. Intellec tual face, deep, thoughtful but very clear brown eyes and dark hair that waves naturally away from a broad, high forehead, and a jaw which indi cates determination, which is sympa thetic rather than obtrusive, and a mouth sensitive—almost sad in repose— lights up the whole face with joyous mirth when she smiles. In answer to the direct question as to why she had taken up the lines of work she has been and is following, Mrs. Gar dener said: "The suffering and pair and sorrow that I see about me on all sides that is so absolutely unnecessary, troubles and moves me all the time, and my one aim is to so popularize scientific facts that anybody can see and under stand them; to try and present in a fair and reasonable way the discoveries of science that the unnecessary suffering in the world may be avoided more than it is. Do you know there are 700,000 defectives in the United States—why, cur standing army is only 25,000. Just think of it; and the rule of the race will be hopeless mediocrity as long as this is allowed to go on. "Alter the incident in the family of that newspaper man In Cincinnati that I told you of just now. I thought and read every article or book I could get hold of that bore on that subject, and I had been writing unsigned articles In one of the scientific magazines for some time, when the editors asked me If I could inform myself ar.d reply to an arti cle that had Just been published by Dr. Hammond on the sex of the brain. I went into Spitzler's laboratory and stud led under him. I read and studied all the noted anthropologists and finally I answered him and the offer was made to him to have a public test in Chickering hall in New York, and ten brains to be furnished, and he to prove his claim there publicly that the female brain could be distinguished from the male brain by the inferiority in the size and quality of brain cells, etc. Mr. Hammond refused. That is one of the incidents or accidents that shows how my attention was directed to one of my lines of work, and the- others have been opened up to me in just such unexpected ways. "All my essays, my lectures, and my stories have been written, with a pur pose, the one I mentioned just now, of popularizing scientific fact, putting them so far as I could Into readable and understandable- form, but nothing I have ever written has be-i ndone without thor oughly testing the facts first; I always prove my theories on mental peculiari ties and other points or conditions be fore I write them, hecause I dor.'t want to make any miFtakes or mislead any body; and the consequence is, my stories are translated in.to foreign languages, and I have enough stuff collected now which has been sent In to me by special ists and mental alienists to keep me busy writing until I am 90 years old. I have attended all kinds of cases and operations, have studied right in the lab oratories of famous specialists that I might be thoroughly informed on every ptep I take in any direction." Mrs. Gardener stated that she came to California as a guest to the Woman's congress In San Francisco, and row s!k and her husband expect to spend several months in the mountains back of Sar. Diego enjoying a much-needed rest and vacation. Her book. "An Unofficial Patriot." is being dramatized by James A. Heame and will be produced at the Fifth Avenue theater. New York, next fall, with Mr. Hearre in the title role. Mrs. and her husband have SeVered their connection with the Arena and have no definite plans for the im mediate future, other than to enjoy the present and recuperate for future work and usefulness along whatever lines ec-em to open to them as occasion pre sents Itself. Mrs. Gardener lectures at Unity church this evening. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Hundreds of Visitors and Some In teresting Displays One thousand visitors passed through the exhibit hall yesterday at the cham ber of commerce, and if anyone had a complaint to enter, it was made under the breath, for not one was heard by the attendants. Donations were received from the fol lowing localities: Downey sends in ap ples, lemons, oranges, plums and peaches from the ranches of L. N. Zahrt, O. T. Stuart, C. G. Smith, B. M. Biythe.

Tropico adds to the exhibit saucer peaches and apricots from S. G. Spear's hillside home. Pasadena completed the day's donations with a handsome display of pears, San Pedro, brown Ischla, white Genoa Bgt, Russian mulberries ar.d Washington navel oranges. One of which measures la\ inches in circum ference. The following has been issued by the local Endeavor societies: "Visiting Christian Endeavor delegates and friends invited to a public reception Sat urday evening.

FOR HOME PRODUCTS "YOU HAVE THE GOODS AND THE DOLLAR, TOO" Small but Enthusiastic Meeting at Merchants and Manufacturers' Booms Authorizes Action The following letter which is self-ex planatory, was mailed to seventy of the local manufacturers. Thirteen only re- sponded, but the meeting was held as stated, and was opened about 8:30 by Frederick W, Braun, Mr. Koepfli having been suddenly called out of the city. Mt. Braun briefly stated the object of the meeting by reading the letter, and then invited suggestions from those present bearing on the subject presented: LOS ANGELES. July 13, 1897. Dear Sir: The undersigned have been appointed by the Merchants and Manu facturers' association a committee to re port upon the advisability of commencing a vigorous campaign in favor of the use of home products through the medium of the press, the distribution of literature and such other means as may be con sidered most effective to arouse the con sumer to the necessity of using home manufactured articles. The committee is also asked to report upon the necessity for the erection of a permanent convention and exhibition building, and further to outline a plan for another home products exhibition. The committee desires to obtain your views in regard to the matters submitted to them for consideration, and urgently requests you to be present at a meeting to be held on Thursday, July 15th, at S p. m., at the rooms of the Merchants and Manu facturers' association. A general understanding among the mer chants and manufacturers in regard to the problem of home products will greatly facilitate the work of the committee. JOSEPH O. KOEPFLI, FREDERICK W. BRAUN, WILLIAM E. ROBERTS, JOHN J. BERGIN, GILBERT T. GAY, Special Committee on Home Products. Messrs. J. J. Bergln, F. W. Braun. A. Douglas, R. W. Pridham, Geo. H. Stew art, F. E. Fay, Byron Erkenbrecher, D. D. Whitney, W. E. Roberts, G. H. Steams and R. W. Burham all spoke at more or less length, recounting experi ences, offering theories for action, sig nifying belief in various lines of work, but all testifying to their hearty support and endorsement of and co-operation with the action of the commitee in any method of fostering and encouraging home consumption, of home products. R. W. Burrham prefacing his remarks with Abraham Lincoln's well-known remark on the subject of home indus tries to the effect that in buying them "you had the- dollar and the goods too," read a preamble which he submitted to the meeting, In which it was suggested, among other things, that a working ! section, a distinct department, beorgan ized under a committee of the Merchant and Manufacturers' association, with a paid secretary, whose whole tlmeshall be devoted to the department; funds to be furnished partly by the Manufac , turers' association and partly by tho : local manufacturers; that a regular system of education be inaugurated a* having qualified women follow up th-. first interest aroused in the consumer by newspaper advertising, by showing and talking up goods in various lines, by placing cards in the stores and hav ing more women to sample the goods, by instituting home products clubs among the merchants, who should pledge themselves to carry so far as they could none but home products, and other similar clubs among the consumers who would likewise pledge themselves to buy oniy such products. Thes* and a number of other sugges tions Mr. Burnham made, all pertinent and all. well received, with the result that after a little further argument R. W. Pridham made the following motion. "As It seemed to be the sense of the meeting, that the committee al ready appointed formulate plans that shall be presented to the board of directors of the Merchants' ar.d Manufacturers' association solicit ing an appropriation for the purpose of carrying on this work." The motion was carried without loss of time, and the responsibility of further action, be ing placed upon the shoulders of Messrs Koepfli, Braun, Roberts, Bergir. ar.d Gay, the meeting stood adjourned. Crazed by Drink LONDON, July 15.—Emma Symonds. wife of a fitter, cut the throat of herself a nd four young children last night while in a state bordering on delirium tremens, after a long period of total abstinence. Oliver Is Determined NEW YORK, July 15.—John Scott Oli ver, a California deputy sheriff, again attempted euicide this afternoon by thrusting a pencil down his throat. He ! was not seriously hurt. LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 16, 1897 AFTERMATH Incidents of Bryan's Trip Through the State THE CHRISTIAN ENDEAVORERS CROWDS THRONG THE PALACE HOTEL AT MIDNIGHT Moye G. Norton of the State Reception Committee Returns Enthused From the North Moye G. Norton, who, with J. W. Mitchell ar.d Harry Patton, made up the Los Angeles representatives on the state reception committee appointed to re ceive William Jennings Bryan, returned from thie north yesterday, and had much to say regarding the arduous trip, which exhausted every one but the hero of the occasion. "It Is useless to allude in detail to the numerous meetings held," said Mr. Nor ton, "for on. every occasion and without any exception the attendance was vim ply limited by the capacity of the grounds. I would like to point out what seemed to me to be a circumstance worthy of note. All along the line dur ing the trip north, at the little way sta tions that the train might or might not stop at —and if it did only for a few mo ments—crowds of people would congre gate and in every Instance ask that Mr. Bryan would speak if only a word or two. As opportunity afforded he did so, and in. a conversational manner, with plain, straightforward language, rpoke to these knots of people, compris ing probably forty or fifty at a time, and with such potent effect that not at all infrequently men were seen with tears trickling down their cheeks. Political economics, as a rule, are not calculated to make hardy men cry, but It was re peatedly pointed out during the last campaign that from the very necessities of the situation the small rancher and farmer has a keener understanding of the silver question than his city brothers. And so it appeared to me as If those little groups of men not only understood perfectly the arguments of Bryan, but in their own persons comprehended their application. "There were nineteen cars filled with Christian Endeavorers preceding our special car, and each evening a delega tion of these good people came into the car and sang some of the songs that have roused the San Francisco people to en thusiasm. Mr. Bryan received them most cordially and remained standing Lhroughout the short service—if it could be called such. "At Bakersfleld our arrival was dram atic. The train got there about 8:30 in the evening, and the place where Bryan was to speak was about two miles dis tant from the station. There was only about half an hour in which, to fill the program. Carriages for the entire party were in waiting and about 250 "cow punchers" and others acted as an es cort. The dust was fearful and added to the darkness of the night. After dash ing along for a few minutes a curve was turned and the carriages drew up in the presence of 15.000 people. Electric lights gleamed all around and illumined the vast throng. Bryan spoke for twenty five minutes and then the shriek of the whistle warned us we must be off. "On arriving at Alameda the local committee entertained Mr. Bryan and his party at a most delightful breakfast. The tug Vigilant, gay with buntingfrom stem to stern, transported the party across the bay. That day Bryan spoke at Alameda at 10, Oakland at 12, at San Francisco, in Central park, at 3, and at Woodward's pavilion at 8 In the even ing. It was' assumed then that the day's work was at an end, but upon being driven back to the Palace hotel the courtyard and the eight galleries were black with people. The hotel was gaily decorated In honor of the Endeavorers, many of whom were stopping In the hotel; and there, too, the fine Italian band of sixty pieces had drawn a crowd, but the music had ceased and the crowd remained In expectation of something, Mr. Bryan had to be taken up a private staircase in> order to reach his rooms. The people wouldn't be denied a speech, however, and although his voice had been strained byfrequetn speaking dur ing the day, Mr. Bryan gave them a fif teen-minutes' talk. At the conclusion what a roar went up! The waves l of sound beat back and forth from gallery to gallery and reverberated •rom the vast glass dome that capped the build ing. "It was about midnight them and we had to leave for San Jose at 9 o'clock the next morning. The bed pulled awful hard and I'll confess I didn't feel like getting up for an early breakfast. But to the astonishment of our party when we gathered for breakfast we discov ered that Bryan had been up since 5 o'clock and had made his way out to the Sutro baths under the able pilotage of W. W. Foote, and was fresh and vigor ous for another day of hard work. But if Bryan's vim and vitality provoked our admiration, the behavior of "Billy" Foote in getting up at 5 o'clock in the morning was a puzzle. Such behavior on his part was contrary to the tradi tions of a life time, so we put it down to an odd. but not displeasing eccentric ity on the part of the genial Billy. "Of course you know, for the Asso ciated Press telegrams probably told you," said Mr. Norton, In concluding, "that Bryan had a reception In San Francisco that neither Hancock, Hayes or Harrison could parallel. The outpour ing to welcome Harrison was the most imposing that this state had ever seen up to that time, but all sorts and condi tions of men turned out to welcome the political leader who had with magic powef fused them together by a belief, common to all, in the fundamental prin ciple for which Bryan contends, and which is believed by them to be the most important question of this age." AN OLD MAN'S FALL Dropped Eighteen Feet, but Not Seri- ously Injured James Austin. 74 years of age, fell from the top of a windmill, a distance of 18 feet, yesterday evening, and was badly bruised about the back and neck, al though no bones were brokem and his .injuries are not dangerous. Austin had (climbed up to the top of the windmill to pump water for his horse by hand and had toppled off. The force of his fall was broken by a platform a few feet from the ground. Austin lives by himself on N street near the end of Pico. Word w as telephoned to the police sta tion and the patrol wagon was sent out bringing the old man to the receiving hospital, where Dr. Hagan attended his injuries. WILL WEAR PANTS ! Kansas City Female Prisoners Must Break Stone KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 15.—The or der of the Police Commissioners of Kan sas City, Kan., that women prisoners must work on the stone pile along with the men has caused a great commotion, and has not yet been put Into effect. Per haps it may never be. The Current Event Club, an organization of women. ha 9 expressed itself as immeasurably shocked and has called an indignation meeting to protest against the "threat ened disgrace and degradation of wo manhood." The members threaten that the en forcement of the order means the retire ment of the Police Commissioners from office at the first opportunity, and as women vote in Kansas municipal elec tions the threat is not regarded as al together an Idle one and may have its desired effect. Their principal objection to the rock pile plan is that part of the order compels the women to work with out skirts and to wear overalls instead. The police officials stand by their order and say that the first woman prisoner whose fine is not paid Will go to the rock pile. BULLA IS NOW A BRIDE SHE MARRIES AERONAUT EARL SON AFTER ALL Officer Hill Brought Into the Scrape. Charges Against Him Are Not Believed A marriage license was yesterday is sued to Richard Earlson, aged 24 years, and Bulla Minot, aged 15 years. This is the young couple whose disappear ance was mentioned a few days ago. At the time it was supposed they had eloped. The girl, however, returned to her home and said she had been visit ing with friends at Santa Monica, and emphatically denied that she had been with Earlson at all. The parents of the child apparently concluded that the best thing they could do was to allow their daughter to marry Earlson, and yesterday morning Mrs. Minot was pres ent when the license was issued, and gave her consent to the union. AVhen Bulla and Earlspn disappeared over a week ago the girl's parents werc convinced that the two had eloped, and Mrs. Minot swore out a complaint against Earlson, charging him with ab ducting her daughter. The warrant was placed in the hands of Police Officer Hill Earlson was not arrested, and it has since been claimed that his escape was due to an undestanding with the offi cer,who is said to have known his where abouts. Other charges have since been made against Hill for inefficiency. It is claimed that he was seen a few nights ago on his beat in an intoxicated, con dition, and that he lost his club, owing to that fact. This was found, and the matter reported. Sergeant Jeffries does not credit these charges, and says that Hill has always been one of the most reliable men on the force. In the meantime the Minot-Earlsor. matter seems to be at leaet temporarily disposed of. RECKLESS BOATING Five Men Ducked and Three of Them Drowned MANCHESTER, N. H., July 15.—Five young men employed in Baldwin's bob bin shop ventured out on the swollen Piscaquog river In an aid scow without oars, depending for the guidance of the boat upon a man with a board. The rains of the last two days had caused a flood and the river was a raging tor rent. The men were unable to control the old hulk and In a short time it was swept over the dam, the occupants, in their efforts to prevent this, losing the board they used for paddling. When the boat went over the dam It tell bottom upward, with the men be neath. Three got clear, but only two were able to reach the shore and. al though the other man was an expert swimmer, he was drawn under by the strong current. These drowned were: FRANK SIMA'RD. JOSEPH LAVOIE. GEORGE TERRIEN. Thomas Terrien and William Lavole were swept close in shore and by hard swimming got within reach of those who had gathered along the bank and were dragged out. Whittier Economy A meeting of the board of trustees was held at the Whittier state reform school yesterday, Mrs. Adina Mitchell, the president of the board, and W. R. Row land being present. The principal busi ness of the meeting was the auditing of accounts and the consideration of the reduction of salaries, which is rendered necessary by the appropriation of the iast legislature. Tired of Life At 3 o'clock this morning a woman about 50 years of age was brought to the receiving hospital at the last gasp. She was discovered in a room at !i33 West First street with a big bottle of carbolic acid by her side, of which she had freely partaken. The woman, whose name was not learnt this morning, had locked the door and wired the key to prevent interference with her self destruction. A Rapists' Danger FLORENCE, Ala..
