Parisian Scientist Fertilizes the Eggs
of the Sea Urchin and the
PARIS, Sept. 25.— Remarkable experi
ments in the chemical development of
Ufe have been effected recently by Pro
fessor de Lage of the Sorbonne. :
•_ In his laboratory at RozofT, in Brit
tany, Professor de Lage placed unfer
tilized eggs of the sea. urchin and .the
starfish in sea water, adding a solu
, v;on of sugar, with a few drops of am
n.onia and tannin. In about an hour
segmentation, which is the first sign
of life, began, and the eggs produced
larvae. The great majority of -these
larvae soon died, but Professor de Lage.,
'by constant and minute care, brought
four of the urchins and two of the star
fish through the larvae stage, and they
are now healthy growing specimens.
Professor de Lage's experiments go
beyond those made by t»rofessor Loeb

Court: Severs Ties That B&inel
Babe to Drunken Fatlier
Want of Care Hastens
Death of Mother of
Neglected Tot
Like a dainty flower turning the nox
ious elements of its surroundings into
beauty and fragrance, unspoiled/by the
cruelty, she has .suffered and by the
rough carousing her childish eyes have
been forced to witness, is 5 year old
Louisa Riis, who was" legally released
yesterday from the t ties that bound her
to her drunken, dissolute father. . She
appeared in Judge Mogan's courtroom
with M. J. White, secretary of the So
\ciety for. the Prevention of Cruelty to
Children,: who. had applied for letters
6f guardianship for; the child. She at
Once won the heart of the, judge/ who
took her on his lap and asked about
her dolland if she would like a Teddy
bear. ,With: the -mother heart 'developed
early in', the neglected, child Louisa re
plied that she would rather, have the
doll as it was like her little sister who
was dead. N , '
The testimony sliowed .that Riis was j
guilty , of cruelty land neglect, arid as
Louisa declared that i she liked Secre
tary White and '-wintedi to "stay with
him, letters of .guardianship were is
sued giving him i full control of the
child. It was testified -that the father,
Alexander Riis, was an habitual drunk
ard, who beat his. wife, and baby, then
living at : 1151' Tennessee street. Al
though he earned good* wages as a car
penter Riis refused to buy. medicine and
delicacies needed by his sick wife, and
sometimes the. family did, not have
food in the house. At last; Mrs. Riis
became *so ill that she could not lift
her head, from the > One night
at . 10 o'clock the men at the Potrero
police station opened the door to find
a brown eyed flaxen haired child stand
ing in the darkness. It was Louisa,
whose tiny feet had trod fearlessly the
rough. road through the Potrero district
to call help for her mother. -
•The case was reported to. the Society
for the 'Prevention of Cruelty to Chil
dren, and matters were straightened
out for a while. Soon, however, Riis
went back to his old ways.. The deli
cate little woman, who had tried so
hard to shield her child, died from the
effects of ill use and 'neglect, leaving
little Louisa entirely at the mercy of
her father. He began to take her with
him to the Potrero roadhouses which
he frequented, and - her childish ears
had to listen to the rough; talk of him
self and his companions.
At last he placed? her with a kind
hearted . German 'family in South San
Francisco named Reichel, but as he
did not' pay for, her. and they were poor
people.. Mrs. Reichel w&s compelled to
surrender her to the Society for "the
Prevention of Cruelty! to'Clilldren: With
the kind hearted secretary and his
family the little girl . seems to have
found again the love she missed since
hermother died:— With-a-terror doubly
pitiable in one so very tiny she clings
to them and begs them riot to give her
up to "that man." Sometimes she* re
fers to lilm as '{the. mao- that was my
father," and she often .wakes up. in the
night crying with fear that he ' will
.take her awajv ' :^ '• \u25a0• v .Jw*
The White family, have become very
fond of the"wjnsonie : child, and they
hope that in time she may regain her
childish carefree disposition.* Secretary
"White says hfc' *haV?,rieyer :» seen -/.a"
brighter child^Of h.er,age.' A'warrant
has been, issued for. the arrest of her
fatTTer. but he has 'dot been heard from
for several moriths.,and his intention
of abandoning;^?, child is.-evident.
