SEATTLE, Nov. 4.-Another ycung woman has attempted suicide because cf an attachment for Nell Pickerell, a resi dent of the north end, who since she was a mere child has masQueraded In boy'3 clothing. The latest victim of a mad infatuation for the Pickerell woman. who goes under the name of Harry Liv ingstone, Is Pearl "Waldron. who last night shot . herself, inflicting a wound which will probably prove fatal. In March, 1502, Hazel Walters, a young woman of respec table parentage, committed suicide by swallowing carbolic acid. Her discovery that Uvtnsrstone was a woman caused her to take her life. It Is not known whether such a discovery was responsi ble for Miss Waldron's attempt to end her life, though it is certain her attach ment for the Pickerell woman is what led up to her effort at self-destruction. Miss Waldron was found in Denny Park late last nizht stretched on the grass with a bullet wound in her chest. A 32 caliber revolver, partly wrapped in a silk handkerchief, lay alongside her. She was in a semi-conscious condition and was removed to the Wayside Mission Hos pital. By dint of much persuasion. Dr. JoJtnscn prevailed upon her to give her name and address. After doing so she requested that Harry Livingstone, who she said resided at 2212 First avenue, be communicated with. The address is that of the Pickerell woman and the name her alias. Dr. Johnscn is of the opinion that the chances for the woman's recov er:.- are exceedingly slight. The bullet evidently r>enetrated the cavity of tba chest and is thought to have lodged dan gerously near if It did not enter some vital organ. Pearl Waldron Is a handsome brunette. aged 22 years and bears many traces of refinement in»*bpr f par-ires. Special Dispatch to Tfce Can.

A university with blinders on U no univer sity at all. but in actual experience I am per suaded this difficulty does cot in any real form exist. Scientific truth soundly determtned and objectively stated in sciectiac form and spirit by real investigators wh.j have been guided by thetr eyes rather than their prejudices and who- seek the truth and not confirmation of preconceived view3 is not the thing which awakens distrust and arouses protest. The formulations of Ideas on which partisanship of every guise is usually organized seldom ap proach tvithlr. solution distance cf the real scientific formulations. Translation from cne into the other must practically always be in direct. President Wheeler, In a historical re view of the older American colleges, then discussed the movement toward public controt of such institutions, showing: that the larger ones among them have now come so fully to appreciate the essential responsibility to public sentiment and public needs, that in spite of the outward form of their government they may be said, nevertheless, in some very real senses to be public institutions and under public control. President Wheeler con cluded as. follows: Long a» your rac-untains stand, here stands the University of Arizona — in teaching. Influ ence and examole, clear^ine and pure as th* sur_«hine t.

He then referred at legnth to : j the difficulties and complications which I ! on every hand beset the president of a \ I State university, saying: Too often the position has been made the football of shifting popular moods or of party : I politics, or. worse, of factional strife.

Not. one of the latter is as valuable as Scott's Emulsion and there's a reason for it Only the purest ingredients enter our Emulsion and its quality never varies. That is why it helps when all others fail. There's not much oil in the market now; it's scarce and high in price. But seal oil and other inferior oils are cheap and plentiful. That's why you can buy^so many substitutes for Scott's Emul- sion at a lower price. We guarantee our Emul- sion to be the best remedy for weak lungs, low vitality and wasting conditions.
