which Mills mailed on the train after
he left Palo Alto. It said:
"Dear Mrs. Pratt—By the time you
get this you will probably know what
I have done. I have left almost every
thing in my room. Anything that you
or Arthur can use please consider
yours in payment of the $20 you gave
me October 1.
"I am inclosing the freight receipts
for the stuff shipped to me, which I
think you will find worth getting. It
is all prepaid. From him who is un
worthy to call himself your friend,
"THORNTON MILLS JR."
In a letter from his father the
younger Mills had received some ad
vice concerning his love for a woman
of a different religious faith.
Recent letters from his father and a
sister, who is a missionary In China,
show that Thornton was held In great
esteem by both father and sister.
GAMUT OF BOARD RUN
BY FIVE AMENDMENTS
Five more proposed charter amend
ments passed safely through the gamut
of the board of supervisors at a spe
cial meeting called last night to con
sider charter amendment propositions.
and will be placed on the ballot at the
coming charter amendment election.
Only seven amendments have been dis
posed of altogether out of the 48 sub
mitted.
The only amendment taken up last
night that failed to receive the board's
indorsement was that designed to give
the mayor power to oust any commis
sioner at his pleasure without assign
ing a cause or holding a trial based on
formal charges. The amendment re
ceived the sanction of the judiciary
committee to begin with, but became
the subject of a decided attack, and un
der" the combined fire of Julius Caesar
Saulmann and the two namesake mem
bers of the board, George and Andrew
J. Gallagher, even Supervisor Vogel
sang finally admitted that the pro
posed change might be vicious and
asked to have it re-referred to his
committee for further consideration.
The various proposed school amend
ments are to be taken up at a special
meeting of the Judiciary committee at
3:30 o'clock this afternoon, and the
next meeting of the entire board to
consider the charter amendments will
be Thursday evening.
W. C. T. U. IS DECLARED
TO BE NONPARTISAN
SACRAMENTO. Oct. 15.—The W. C.
T. U. of California took one of the
most important steps in its history this
morning, when the state convention in
the First Baptist church, through the
efforts of the Insurgents, adopted a
resolution by a vote of 56 to 55 de
claring the organization to be "politic
ally nonpartisan" and declaring the
body more conservative In method than
the prohibition party, though equally
radical in theory. The passage of the
resolution brought victory to the grow
ing body of insurgents in the organiza
tion whx> for a long time have battled
for the union to stand as an organiza
tion independent of the prohibition
party, welcoming all voters of any
party believing in total abstinence.

thorough musical education can be acquired in no
other way, so easily, so quickly.
f[ It is the instrument for every member of the
family, that gives pleasure unending and furnishes
entertainment for guests and friends.
fl It replaces the silent piano—that instrument
which has stood a somber ornament for years—
filling the home with melody and life.
fl It brings to every member of the family the
ability to play the piano with real artistry; giving
to each composition, popular or classic, all the
characteristic dash and brilliancy of the truly gifted
pianist.
fl It makes Wagner, Liszt, Beethoven, Schubert
and all others of the world's great composers your
intimates and your friends.
ff It is, in fact, the highest evidence of culture, the
most prolific source of pleasure, the most profitable
investment that can be made for the home, and,
once installed, the most indispensable necessity.
