INQUEST IN A Actress Is the Cause of the Frank J. Gould Di vorce Suit. HUSBAND TO FIGHT CASE. New York, Aug. 24. Frank J. Gould it was asserted today on good auth ority, has decided that the details of the suit for divorce brought against him by his wife shall be heard in op en court. Mr. Gould will oppose the appointment of a referee and will con test every step of the litigation. It is learned that the young woman referred to as "Rose" in the amended complaint filed by Mrs. Gould, is Rose Winter, an actress. When Mrs. Gould filed an amended complaint in the action she had bogun against her husband, she accused Mr. Gould of misconduct in this city with a young woman whose first name, she said, was "Rose." In the original com plaint Mr. Gould was accused of mis conduct with a woman in North Syd ney, Cape Breton, in June, 1906. A friend of Mr. Gould said: "Mr. Gould has not yet filed his answer to the amended complaint. He has more than ten days in which to do this. He will deny the allegations of miscon duct made by his wife. Mr. Gould will also insist upon his right to have the divorce case heard In open court. "The names and dates which Mrs. Gould gives in her complaint and which she seeks to connect with Mr. Gould are too indefinite. Mr. Gould does not think the case will ever gt before a referee. He has already re fused an offer to have the testimony heard behind closed doors. Mr. Gould is of the omnion that the charges made against him by his wife are too uncertain and indefinite and that she will find it impossible to obtain a de cree of divorce because of them." A Clever Woman. "Good morning Mrs. Howell, why are you not washing this morning, it is now ten o'clock." "Why, Mrs. Ross, since I commenced to use Easy Task Soap I am always through with my wasing by nine-thirty in the morn ing. Take my advice, use Easy Task and you will not have to put in all day breaking your back over the wash tub." QUARRELS WITH WOMAN FRIEND AND SUICIDES. MISS FAITH DAVIS.

Fairbanks, pastor of St. Pat rick's church and counsellor of Mil waukee arch diocese, has received a letter fom Lord Halifax, president of the English church union, that favors hcurch union. Both favor reunion through Rome and hold Rome as the center of Christian unity. The letter from Lord Halifax which was printed in a recent issue of the Living Church in part is as follows: "The difficulties in the way of re union are enormous and from a hu man view point almost insurmounta ble. Of course there is no real dif ficulty as to the questions of discipline. The point is. can such explanations be given of disputed matters of doc trine as may make reunion possible without either side being asked to as sent to contradictioin of what has been authoritatively taught? It seems to me such explanations are possible and that many of our difficulties are really due to misunderstandings." The letter is published in reply to the statements of leading local Epis copalians that there, is no organized movement in the Anglican church for a uuiun with Rome. Will ' rtomember His Friends. When Patrick McGinnagan becam i member of the Chicago police forc i delegation of his friends burst i: upon him while he was at dinner and presented him with a handsome night stick in honor of his popularity and their esteem. Completely bewildered by this unexpected token, the new po liceman nevertheless struggled to his feet and stammered bis appreciation. "Friends, ye have upset me wid y'r kindness." he said, flourishing the night stick. "Oi'll try an' do me duty wid this little shillalah. and I hope an' thrust thot ivry man her'U live t' feel Its inflooince." The Alphabet. The great Phoenician alphabet, the parent of every form of European writing and of the scripts of Persia. Arabia and India as well, owes but little to Egypt. It is true that In the construction of their alphabet the Phoenicians made use of certain hier atic characters found in their trade deal ings with Egypt, but this fact in no way detracts from the glory of the In vention which belongs to the "Yankeef of antiquity."

F w J TOWN III FUROR OVER FIRE ALARM Much Excitement in Fountain City When. Hand En gine Makes Run. WO MEN ARE STRUCK. TOWN MARSHAL SO EXCITED HE COULDN'T GET OUT CF THE WAY OF UNWIELDY LITTLE FIRE FIGHTER. Fountain City. Ind.. Aue. "J J The i fire bell clanged its loudest and the entire populace was in a high state of xcitement here Saturday when it was reported the residence of Jesse Par ker was on fire. Regulars and volun teers rushed to the engine house and tai ted running with the engine at top speed. "Hurry up, hurry up.' screamed the women and old decrepit men. too infirm to help pull the en gine, hobbled about on their canes and urged haste. Little children ran alongside the truck and pleaded with the men tugging at the ropes to pull the harder. A stretch of gravel was encountered and the engine stalled. Working with might and main and in sheer desper ation, the wheels could not be pulled further. As an expedient the wagon was pulled from the gravel and onto he'eement sidewalk. At the Chris tian church the firemen were met by Barlow Price, the village marshal. Wildly gesticulating and highly excit ed, Price gave instructions to turn to the north and cut across the church yard. With a vicious lunge the men at the front started to execute the marshal's directions, but he was in the way. He was crippled slightly and was unable to escape from danger through his own dexterity and the fire men lunged to one side to avoid him. But the engine wheel collided with a fence post and swerved toward Frank Thomas, who was knocked to the ground and barely escaped being run over. And then came better news the alarm was false. Grass along the railroad tracks had caught fire from sparks from an engine. Mrs. Parker saw the smoke and ran to the home of Henry Clevenger to give the alarm of tfre. Lavina Clevenger and Marie Pegg ran to the home of C. C. Pearson and telephoned for the fire department to come. GOT ON THE PORK. In More Ways Than Steel. One Did Bill Rising Sun, Md., Aug. 24.

THE MODERN HOTEl A Product of the Times, It Is Made by ttte Gneata. Among the silly and absurd articles appearing from time to time concern ing hotel and tavern keeping, one tells us again and again how the modern hotel Is shown to disadvantage when compared with the inns of colonial days. In these articles the writer di lates and expatiates on the hofpitaliry of the old time tarern, and the cold. Indifferent and almost cruel treatment received from the hands of the modern hotel man. Of course every one knows if he will drop sentiment for a moment and give the subject a little sober re flection that the modern traveler, tour ist or hotel guest would absolutely re fuse the accommodations afforded by the inn of a hundred years ago. The only advantage of a hotel of those times lay in the fact that the lack of material comforts drew from the trav eler a warmer fellow feeling and great er sociability a condition in wfcjch ohe man was more his brother's keeper than prevails today. Again, the travel by coach and the small number thrown together, en route or at the hotel, made closer acquaintanceship not only possi ble, but far more desirable than in our day of big hotels and big crowds. The modern hotel Is a product of the times. The wants, desires, whims, fads and, on top of all these, the imperative demands of those who travel have made the hotel of today what it is from the standpoint of food, accommoda tions, method of service and manage ment and from every point of view. The hotel keeper of today responds to the bidding of the guests. One might almost say of the man and woman who travel: "Here is your hotel. You have planned It, furnished It. You have out lined its methods of management, and it is what you believe should be com prehended In the modern hotel." The colonial tavern, which would not be tolerated for a moment in our days, wa3 adapted to its times. To speak of it as being superior to the modern hos telry is to claim that the old stage coach, which left you more weary and worn at the end of a hundred miles than the palace coach does today at the end of a thousand miles, was a su perior vehicle of travel to those used on he modern railroad.

CITY IS FRIGHTENED Leper Discovered to Be Circu lating About Streets of Washington, D. C. DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT. Washington, Aug. 24. Washington is greatly agitated over the discovery of leprosy in the capital city. A vic tim of the dread scourge has boen stalking the streets, eating in luncn rooms, riding in street cars and gen erally rubbing elbows with the resi dents for five days. By accident he was discovered yes terday when a physician was called to treat him for a trifling illness. The plague victim is John R. Early, whose home is in L.ynn, N. C. who, as a vet eran of the Spanish-American war came to Washington to secure a pen sion. He is 33 years of age, and has a wife and one child. Upon hij arrival in Washington Ear ly secured a room in a cheap board ing house on Pennsylvania avenue and then proceeded to see the town. For days he moved around untram- meled. Friday, however, he had a physician called, who, upon seeing the patient, immediately pronounced him a leper. The local health authorities were summoned without loss of time, and hastened the plague victim to a deten tion tent on the outskirts of the city. There he has been placed under guard. Apprehensive that the dread scourge may be scattered by Early, the author ities are keening a vigilant watch for developments. They have ordered all places he is known to have visited to be fumigated, and also have placed disinfectants in street cars in which he is supposed to have been a passen ger. 'SYMPTOMS' OF RA&TE5V Signs by Which You May Know When a Dog Is Really Mad. Hydrophobia is so rare ami terrifying that its symptoms and treatment are little understood. As a matter of fact, the commonly accepted expression of madness in a dog is often misleading. The real mad dog does not shun wa ter, as it is said. On the contrary, mad dogs often rush to the water and drink it eagerly. If they are able to swallow. The mad dog does not froth at the mouth. It does not run amuck, snapping at everything in its path. What, then, are the indications of the mad dog? To those familiar with a given dog the surest symptom and the one which should excite closest atten tion is a distinct and unaccountable change la the dog's disposition, a staid dog becoming excitable and a frisky one dull. That condition does not nec essarily mean rabies, but it is sus picious, and if in addition the dog has trouble in swallowing, as though it seemed to have a bone in its throat, beware! That dog should be Instantly tied up, because if it be rabies it takes but a day or two for ferocious in stincts to develop. The unmistakable evidence, however, of a dog with rabies is tbe sticky, whitish saliva which covers the teeth and shows on the drawn lips. The eyes glare and are red; the dog has paroxysms of run ning fury, during which it barks hoarsely, which alternate with periods of temporary exhaustion. Caspar Whitney in Outing.
