Professor Hugo Munsterberg, head of the Harvard department of psychol ogy; Professor James Hyslop of Colum bia, who is the president of the Anier iean Society For Psychical Research, and other experts recently visited Beu lah Miller, the ten-year-old girl of War ren, whose remarkable powers of mind reading have startled scientists. It was planned to have her taken to Cam bridge for investigation of her facul ties. Names Concealed Objects. Dr. Henry W. Hopkins, who assist ed in the tests, makes an affidavit as follows: "I began the test by turning the stone of my ring Inside my hand, put ting my hand in my pocket. When Beulah came in from another room asked her what I had in my left hand She readily said, 'A diamond.' I then put my hand in my right pocket and asked her what I had In my right hand She said, 'Purse,' which was correct I took a coin irr my right hand while it was still in my pocket and said 'Beulah, what have I in my right hand now?' She said, 'Quarter.' I said 'Now, Beulah, if you will tell me the figures on the coin it is yours.' She I answered, '1-0-9-S,' and the quarter i was hers. I then opened the case of ! my watch and looked at the number j of the movement, closed the case and j put the watch back in my pocket.

"Mrs. Rask, another spectator, then uaid, 'Beulah, can you tell me what have concealed under my muff? Beu lah said right off, 'A box,' which it proved to be. Mrs. Rask then asked her if she could tell her what was in the box. She sa Id, 'Corn.' It was pop corn. She then asked Beulah If she could tell her where she lived. Beu iah spelled out 'Brooklyn.' "She then asked her if she could tell the name of her son, who was in col lege. Beulah said, 'Fred,' which was correct. Mrs. Rask told Beulah that she had a cat at home and asked her if she could tell its name. Beulah said, 'Billy, which was the name of the cat.

Mrs. Rask said that Beulah had an swered all the questions asked by her correctly and that most of the an swers were known to no one present but herself." It was St. Patrick's day in the morn ing. Mrs. Mulcahey dressed her son Pat, eleven years old, In his "best suit and put a bit of green ribbon in the buttonhole of his jacket. After mass the O'Rourke children came over to the Mulcaheys to play with little Tat. Thore were Tommy O'Rourke, seven years old, and Nora, who was nine. They, too, had green ribbons -:a their breasts, and Mrs. Mulcahey, setting them all down in a row, told them sto ries of the patron saint of Ireland how he did away with the slavery of the lower people and how he rescued the country from a false religion and es tablished the true church. She also told them of the wonderful miracles done by St. Patrick and the many peo pie he saved from some impending danger. Everybody knows that St. Patrick's day falls on the 17th of March and that the 17th of March is near the begin ning of spring. In the southern states sometimes it is pretty warm at that time, and the snow, melting farther north, swells the creeks, and the creeks swell the rivers, and occasionally they have what is called an inundation. It happened that on this St. Patrick's day where these children lived they had an inundation. The O'Rourke chil dren went home from the Mulcaheys about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and found the water, which had not been within half a mile of them In the moi i ing, was now a foot deep all around the house. They thought it lots of fun to hold up their clothes and walk in the water to their front door. Their mother being out at work. Tommy made a raft of some old boards he found floating in the cellar, and then they had a tine time pushing themselves around with a clothes pole. But the water kept getting deeper and deeper, so that before dark the lower flooi- of the house was covered with water. The flood began to look serious to the children, and they wished their mother would come home. But she had been at work during the day at a house built on lower ground than her home, and when the waters came up she was obliged to stay and help the persons living there to move out their effects. So when night came on she had not come home, and by this time a bridge over which she must pass had been washed away, and she was prevented from going farther. So Nora lighted a lamp, and she and Tommy climbed the stairs to the sec ond story to get away from the water. Tommy began to be frightened, but Nora told him that there was no rea son to be scared. At any rate. If they were in danger the good saint that Mrs. Mulcahey had been telling them about In the morning would take care of them. But the water kept corning higher and higher, and after awhile they heard something crack below, and the house began to rock. Being ot wood, it had been lifted off its founda tion and was afloat. "Mother," said little Tat Mulcahey that night, "we're lucky to be on this high ground." "Yes, we are. It's dreadful to think of people in the valley." "I wonder how it is at the O'Rourkes." "I don't know." "I'm going out to have a look." "Don't you go far," said the mothei anxiously. Pat went down toward the O'Rourkes, but when still some distance from there he was stopped by the flood. In the direction of their house he saw a light slightly rocking, as though it were in a boat All sorts of articles boards, fur niture and other things that would float were slowly drifting about. Pal was worried about his two little friends and wished for a boat in which to go and see how they were getting on. But there was no boat at hand. Presently the light he had seen ap peared to be drawing nearer. Fa1 watched it as it came on, and aftet awhile he could look into a window. Some person or persons were inside, but the boy could not distinguish who they were. The house drifted to with- Leader ot Mexican Revolt Has Had a Charmed Life. DEFEATED MANY TIMES.

Is one of the most remarkable per sonalities Mexico had ever produced. lie Is the nephew of Porfirio Diaz, who for more than thirty years was dictator of Mexico. Ilis father was General Felix Diaz, who was slain in 1S71 in the re volt of the Diaz faction against Presi dent Benito Juarez. Not only does the younger Diaz physically resemble his banished un cle, but their careers up to the present are remarkably parallel. Admirers of Porfirio Diaz have said that since Richard Coeur de Lion the world has produced no man of so thrilling a per Bonal and military career as "the man of Mexico," as he was called. He was the hero of fifty pitched battles, a lead er of the forlorn hope of Mexico against the trained armies of France In the war of the intervention, when Benito Juarez and his capital were be ing chased from pillar to post. j Felix Diaz, as does his uncle, seems j to bear a charmed life. In the six j years he was chief of police of the i City of Mexico his life was attempted i a number of times. The Mexican character is boyish in love of the pec-! tacular. It is a hero worshiping peo-j pie. The latest exploit of Diaz in es- j caping from a death cell and sudden-! ly showing himself at the head of an army will appeal to the characteristic trait of a people that love daring. m Mm laments FOR THURSDAY New Suits, New Coats and New Dresses We extend a cordial invitation to all to come and look the new styles over, whether they wish to buy or not. ikt''-" . . .

Then Pat heard a child crying. A large board had floated near Tat, and he resolved to go out to the house. So he got some small pieces of wood for paddles and pulled out. Coming to a second story window, he put in his head. "Tommy." cried a girl's voice, "we're saved. Here's St. Patrick come to take us to land." "I'm Pat," said the little rescuer, "but I'm not the saint" "Oh. Pat is it yon," cried Nora, re lieved, "and have you come in a boatT "No. I've come on a board." "My gracious goodness! We can't go away on a board." "It's a big one. Come, Tom. I'll take you first; then I'll come back for Nora." " Tommy looked out of the window and, seeing the flood, drew back, but his sister urged him. and, getting on to the plank, Pat pulled him to dry land. Then he returned for Nora and did the same for her. Scarcely had they left the house when it floated on. "If you're not St. Patrick." said Nora after reaching terra firma, "but only Pat Mulcahey, I believe the saint sent you to save us anyway." The children stayed that night at Mrs. Mulcahey's, and when their mother found them there she was delighted.

But the Madero government had been warned, and the loyal troops recaptur ed Vera Cruz after two hours of fight ing and made Diaz prisoner. The order of the court martial was that Diaz should be shot at sunrise on the morning of Oct 26. But when the news reached the City of Mexico there was dissension In the cabinet over what course the president should take. The majority, including the president's uncle.
