The Rev. William Kirk Guthrie deliv
ered a eulogy on John Knox at the First
Presbyterian Church, and the Rev. James

Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church,
spoke as follows:
\u25a0=• Great events recerally center arenmd great

illustrative instances: Bismarck and German
unity; Cromwell and the Magna Charta: Peter
the Great and Russian progress; John Wesley
and Uethodism; George Washington and Amer

union oi the States and freedom of the slaves.
i And so when you turn, to Scotland and the
Scottish Reformation, aa Fronde has said:
"The one supremely great man that Scotland
possessed — the one man without whom Scot
land, as the modern world has known it.
would, have had .no existence, was John
Knox." Verily the name of ' John Knox is the'
cliief esC' on the • long > list ' of Scotland's heroes
and worthies
That chapter of her history which thrills
U3 most — which stirs our righteous resent
ment, awakene our noblest impulses, fires our
purposes and desires for the triumph of truth,
and begets a consecration to the cause of Pro
testant Christianity i* the records of the
sublime energy, the heroic daring, , the con
spicuous faith, the determined perseverance,
the consecrated talents, the unconquerable pur
pose or Scotland's chief est son— John Knox.
If you are looking for men or firm and un
deviatmg devotion to conscientious conviction
and unswerving allegiance to high nforal prin
ciple in the path of rectitnde, then John Knox
will be among' the greatest in the foremost
files of time. If you are seeking men of com
manding influence among Individuals and over
nationsextending to -increasing generations
then among the best examples John Knox will
be conspicuous.
It has been declared by high authority that
the history of Scotland -is the history of the
Reformation, and that the htetory of the Ref

He was born somewhere aad sometime In

four hundredth anniversary of his birth. Birth
and genealogical tables are often matters of

NELSON MEETS
BOXER ATTELL
Epedal Dispatch to Th» Can.
PHILADELPHIA, . May 21.— The long
looked-for appearance of Battling Nel
son in the East will take place to-mor
row night, when the Dane will box Abe
Attell. the feather-weight champion.
Great interest has been taken in Nel
son since he came here, although the
Western boy; has somewhat chilled en
thusiasm by his refusal to meet Willie
Lewis 'of New York, | unless the latter
weighs 130 pounds at 6 o'clock the night
of the bout, while he would not have to
weigh in. . • . -
In view of Nelson's announcement that
he is "a fighter, pure and simple," fight
fans view his action in the Lewis matter
with suspicion. Attell, who will meet
. Nelson to-morrow, is \u25a0 a boxer, not a
fighter. It is expected here he will do
to Nelson what' be 'did. to Tommy Mur
phy—make him look cheap. However, if
Nelson corners the elusive Attell it will
be all up with the latter.
On Friday night Peter Maher will box
Joe J. Eannette of New York. On Satur
day Tommy ..Mowatt of Chicago* will
make his first > appearance in the East
against Jack O'Neill of this city, , It has
been announced that the winner of the
latter bout will meet . Nelson in his sec^

The Baptist and Episcopal churches in
North Fort "Worth were badly wrecked,
while the roofs of the Grand Hotel,* in
East Weatherfcrd street,, and the John
son House, in West Bluff street, , were
torn away. Fifty dwellings in various
parts of the city were damaged. The
Second Ward school I building was par
tially wrecked.
A passenger on a Texas and Pacific train
from the west reports that the town of Min
eral Wells /was partly blown away. One
church building belonging to the African
Methodist ' Episcopal congregation was
demolished. ' Many \u25a0-- business ! buildings
lost their roofs, including the First Na
tional Bank building, a seven-story struc
ture.
FORT WORTH, Tex., May U.— A heavy
windstorm, blowing at the rate of- seventy
miles an hour, struck this city from the
southwest at 6:30 o'clock to-night. : Part
of the west wall of the Texas and Pa
cific passenger station was blown in and
John Young, a train dispatcher, killed.
The storm .was most severe west of the
city and all telephone and telegraph
wires are down.
The Chino ranch is considered one of
the mest valuable properties in the south
ern part of the State, and has been the
object of negotiations several times in
the last few years. The ranch consists
of 30.fr X) acres and includes a large
amount of personal property. Among the
assets are a railroad and valuable rolling
stock, i such as locomotives, \ passenger
and freight cars, traction engines, devel
oped and producing oil wells, and their
complete outfit, business blocks, farm
houses and farming implements.
For a long time the title to the ranch
was clouded, but these difficulties have
been cleared, and with the advent of a
new owner it is understood that the prop
erty will be opened for settlement. The
purchase price is said to exceed $1,000,000
by several hundred thousand. "
"It Is true that a syndicate, with which
Edward T. Earl of Los Angeles and I
are identified, is negotiating for the. Chino
ranch," said Mr. Marshall, "and I regret
that the fact has become public' I came
to this city to" see other parties connected
with the matter, but had hoped to keep
the purpose of my visit secret."
A deal is now under way in this city
that \u25a0will probably result ; to-day or to
morrow In the sale of the famous Chino
ranch in San Bernardino County. ;
E. J. Marshall, vice president of the
Southwestern National Bank of Los An
geles, arrived here yesterday in connec
tion with the deal, and . admitted , last
night that he expected to complete it
within the next forty-eight hours. He
declined to enter into the details of the
transaction until it is completed, on the
grounds that it involves a great sum of
money and any interference would mean
a great loss.- ? -^?. N .'-^VV
It was on the occasion of her recent
visit to -Santa Barbara that she first met
the Count, at.d it is said that the noble
man was immediately smitten with the
fair ycuag woman. The Count and the
Countess own a beautiful place in Reg
ensburg, Bavaria, and are possessed of
considerable wealth. They have shown a
desire to travel ia this country, and in
vested considerable money three years
ago in the Southwest. • They have been
in ihe ha.bit of making regular visits to
California durins the winter months.
The first meeting between the Count
and Miss .Harrison is said to have been
followed by a. proposal from him, but
iliss Harrison. although seemingly
pleased with the handsome Bavarian's
attentions, was. it is said, a bit shy of
giving- him encouragement in his hur
riedly conceived matrimonial plans. Still
he persisted, and no one in the south was
surprised when the Count and his mother.
contrary to their winter custom, came
north to San Francisco immediately after
Miss Harrison and Miss Kaye had de
parted from Santa Barbara. News as to
whether the Count will overtake Miss
Harrison at Colorado Springs or follow
her on to Philadelphia is eagerly awaited
by society, which is wildly speculating
in the interim.
The Count took advantage of the first
opportunity to Inquire Quietly of the
clerk if Miss Harrison and her
were guests at the hotel, and upon learn
ing that the young women had left he
showed positive signs of disappointment.
For several days he busied himself try
ing to learn the destination of the two
yocrig wemen, and finally getting the
iiiicrrnaxion that they were to stop off
at Colorado Springs, he hastened the
departure of himself and his dignified
do tier in the same direction.
"Future mail shall be sent to The Ant
lers," was the hurried instructions left
by the Count, and since he disappeared
from the St. Francis speculation has
been rife as to whether he will be suc
cessful in his reported attempt to win
the fceart o! the Philadelphia heiress.
Miss Ks.rrison is well-known in Califor
nia, where she visits every year, and es
pecially in Santa Barbara, where she is
wort to spend the greater part of her
Btay in the West, and where she is con-
Etar.tly an object of attention from the
members of Eastern society that winter
there, and the subject of much conver
sation among- her own sex. She is an
"oui-aoor girl." who has few superiors in
h&rsemanship. golf or other fresh air
Eport. Although she feigns a mannish
air and carries a swagger stick, the fact
in no way seems to lessen her feminine
attractiveness, and everywhere she trav
els she finds many among the male sex
devoted to her. -.'. "

Armeies two weeks ago that the hand
sosie Bavarian nobleman was deeply in
love with Miss Harrison and determined
to capture her heart. It was about the
lime this story reached San Francisco
that Miss Harrison and Miss Kaye were
guests at the St. Francis. Suddenly they
left for the East and hardly had they
gone before the Count and his mother ap
rtved trern the south and registered at
the St. Francis.
DOES SOME TRAtLCSG.
Ibe Ferris' stock 'company presented
"Way. Out "West" last night at the Grand
Opera-house without Florence Stone in
the leading role. Miss Stone was sup
posed to-be starring as a r blind Indian
girl, though she did not have much to do.
She was given a warm welcome when she
appeared on the stage for the first time
and showed her versatility.
Dick Ferris was the shining light of the
production, which is built on the lines of
"Arizona," Ferris was the center of ac
tion and danger from the moment he ap
peared on the stage in the first act. He
was kept busy doing hero stunts through
out the play, posing in the dual role of
twin brothers— one a cowboy and the
other, an army officer. Frederick Julian
as the chaplain, Frank Sheridan as . the
colonel and A. Byron Beasley as the vil
lain were all much in evidence, and
played their parts very creditably. Lans
ing Rowan, Edith Julian and Marion Bal-
Hni were the leading female performers.
This evening the newsboys of the
city "will be admitted free to the play
through the generosity of Mr. Ferris.
Hundreds of tickets have been dis
tributed and the lads are promised an
enjoyable evening.
Charles H. Burke and Grace La Rue.
with their two lively "inky boys," pre
sented a lively sketch. Burke at once
established himself as a favorite. He is
a comedian of the best ranK and his pat
ent telephone, connecting with both the
upper and the Jower region, is one of the
funniest Orpheumisms sprung for a long
time. Miss La Rue sang "Billy"
Brackett's new waltz song, "Dear Old
Frisco," which was duly applauded.
- John Birch, who produces a whole
melodrama himself," assuming the dif
ferent parts by merely changing hats, is
still one. of the real hits.
This is certainly a great week for those
who appreciate vaudeville and know the
way to the Orpheum.
The Orpheum has a show this week
that the people cannot stay away from.
It is one of the record breakers for merit.
Perhaps the best thing on the bill is
the "Dr. Jekyll and Mr.. Hyde in Twenty
Minutes" by Emmett Corrigan and his
company, though, of their kind, there are
other features just as good. Mr. Corri
gan gives a representation of the dual
role in Robert Louis Stevenson's creepy
work that is one of the best things' ev«r
seen here. . His transformation from
the benign, lovable Dr. Jekyll to
the monster. Hyde, before the eyes
of the audience is almost weird
and is certainly one of the clev
erest things in stagecraft. The
rendering of the play in twenty minutes
is a taking idea. The audience is given
a good conception of the story on the
Orpheum stage.
Delia Fox was among the favorites and
her reappearance In the city was warmly
greeted. She sang some catchy songs in
a catchy way and was fgiven applause
and a great bunch of roses that glad
dened the heart of the comic opera fa
vorite, as shown by her_.apparent delight
when the flowers hove in sight, propelled
by an usher, who was lost to sight be
hind their mass of color.
Mabelle Adams, the "character violin
ist," is a charming young woman with
entrancing white arms. She played sweet
ballads and patriotic airs' in a medley, and
some classic pieces that made the 'gal
lery look dignified. She was applauded
for both.
Graceful and charming as ever,
Florence Roberts greeted her San
Francisco friends at the California
Theater last night after her long trip
through the East. Every seat in the
house was tilled by an enthusiastic ad
mirer. The play was "The Unwelcome
ilrs. Hatch," and the emotional young
actress showed her wonderful ability
to as great advantage in it as in those
pieces of French complexion where lo
cal play-goers have seen her more fre
quently.
In the scenes where she denounced
the woman -who had stolen her hus
band and where she is reunited with
her daughter Miss Roberts had her
audience at her feet. At the close of
the third act her hearers kept the cur
tain going until she made a pretty lit
tle speech and threw a kiss. Most of
the female portion of the audience was
moved to shed tears at the sad chap
ters in the story.
Herschel Mayall, who has lately been
slaying bandits at the Central, played
the part of the cruel husband with the
success which usually attends his ef
forts. Georgie Woodthorpe looked after
the humorous and pathetic character of
Agnes, the old servant, to the eminent
satisfaction of the house. The others
of the cast performed their duties in a
highly acceptable manner..
It was Miss Roberts, however, and
not the play, that most of the* people
went to see. The applause was almost
continuous. The earnest little actress
wore herself out in her endeavor to
satify her hearers. She never, had any
difficulty in filling the Alcazar, and
from the present outlook she will
crowd the California during her stay.
>*ext week she \u25a0will appear in "The

The Perm Mutual life Insurance Co., of PhaadeipWa.
On. the 7th day of December, 1904^ by its Board of Trustees, unanimously adopted the follow-
ing resolution: ;

dent of the Company request the Insurance Commissioner of Pennsylvania, together with
the Insurance Commissioners of Massachusetts and Wisconsin, either in person or by
deputies, to make a full and complete examination of the affairs and investments of the
Company, as provided for by, law, said examination to be made as early as can be arranged
after the closing of the accounts of the Company for the current year."
