Among all the disagreeable consequences
that follow the decay of the teeth, an im
pure breath must be the most mortifying
and unpleasant to its possessor, and it is
the mostinexeusibieauu offensive in society ;
and yet the cause of it. may easily be re
moved by cleansing you" teeth daily with
that justly popular deatrifrice, Fragrant
SOZOiONT. It purities and sweetens the
brc-lu, cools and refreshes the mouth, and
gives a pearl-like appearance to the teeth
Gentlemen who indulge in smoking should
cleanse their teeth with SOZODONT, as
it removes all unpleasant odors of the weed

The Testimony of Xhc Children Regarding;
the Ue of the Jlnliil-St tmHt or
tJio n affluent.
Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Sessions and
Crockett, accompanied by representatives
of tho press, visited the Orphans' Home for
the purpose of investigating tho recent
flogging of the boy Fi ed Gray.
The examination w as held in the school
room, with tho children the managers of
the institution and the teacher who flogged
the boy being excluded from the room.
Half a dozen of the older boys and girls
were asked to tell what they saw. o? the
whipping. They all testified nearly alike
and substantially as follows:
Gray was in the sjielling class, and failed
in the word "bite." Miss Harris told him
to be seated, and he began to cry. She re
peated the order, at which he picked up the
stove poker (a piece of broomstick, about
three feet long), and advanced toward the
teacher. He attempted to strike her with
it, but did not succeed. She then twisted
it from his hands and struck him two blows
on the back. (Some of the children held
that several blows were struck.) He then
attempted to strike her with hi3 fist, but
did not succeed. The two fought and
wrestled, and Miss Harris bringing a black
rawhide from the closet, whipped him with
it, and calling in Mr. Mill? to witness the
whipping. Mr. Mills took no part in the
whipping, except to stand by and order it
done. He did not take hold of the boy at
all. Upon the length of time occupied by
the whipping the children gave vague tes
timony. Seme thought it fifteen minutes
and some longer. It was generally agreed
by them that it began shortly after the class
was called (10:33) and lasted until llo'clock
or thereabouts. One of the children testi
fied that about one hundred blows were
The whip used was picked up in the road
by one of the boys. It had fallen from
a passing cait. it was a large black whip.
Gray, in the scuffle, pushed Miss Harris to
ward the hall. Wheu he said:
"What have you that stick for ?"
He replied,
"I'd show you why."
He made an attempt to strike with the
stick before she whipped him.
now FCNisa.xj exts were ixflicted.
Several children testified that they had
been whipped for not being able to get
their lessons although they frequenty
stayed in to get them. They were required
to write words fiva hundred or a thousand
times, were locked up or whipped with a
ruler or rawhide. Some one was whipped
nearly every day. They had been shut up
for not going to church, but never flogged.
Some boys had been flogged; not for s'ay
ing away from church, but for disobeying
other rules when they stayed away. They
h id been told not to speak to Mr. or Mrs.
Webb even should they be spoken to by
them on the street or in church, and been
threatened with punishment if they did so.
Wheu they had written to their guardians
and expressed a liking for the Webbs tho
letters were inspected and they were not
allowed to put such expressions in. They
were als.- ; ; b idden to call on the Webbs
under threat ui punishment.
Mary Fay, aged nine years, volunteered
the statement to th-3 Committee that she
had been beaten with a rule and rawhide
until her body was black and bine. She
had beeu taken into a closet and flogged for
not siBsni) and Miss Harris had left the
doors open that the boys might witness the
punishment. The witness said that Ida
Johnson, Josie Enders, and Alice Beals had
been spanked in tho preseuce of the boys,
their clothes being pulled up. Ida John
sou, also nine years, corroborated this tes
timony. They also said that Lizzie Moore
had been slapped in the mouth for whisper
ing until her lips swelled, and that Miss
Harris had cut one children's ears wi h her
finger nail until it bled, besides pinching
their arms until they were marked.
None of the children witnessed the whip
ping of Wise. He was locked up after
wards, and soma of tho boys talked to him
through the window, but their testimony
wa3 not material.
When asked regarding the food they all
agreed that they had plenty to eat, and that
the bod in which they slept were as good as
they wanted, and provided with plenty of
blankets and sheets. They were also warm
ly dressed, and had no cause for complaint.
Much other testimony was given, but it

Mr. Mills aad Miss Harris were then
called in and told what the testimony of
the children had been. Regarding the
whipping of Gray, Miss Harris . denied
striking him v.nh the poker, but admitted
that. Rome blows niiaht have reached his
body in the scuffle for the stick. She
claimed that the boy had struck her a glanc
ing blow in the face with his fist. She had
used the rawhide, but not any more than
she considered necessary under the circum
stances. She admitted the whipping of
Mary Fay with a ruler, but denied the use
of the rawhide. The girl interrupted the
teacher by strenuously insisting that the
rawhide was used. Miss Harris admitted
spanking some of the girls in the presence
of the school. She took them behind the
stove when the spauking was done, and
their faces were toward the schoo', so that
there was no exposure of person. She ad
ministered the punishment to the tills in
the 2'i'esence of the school, she said, to
humiliate them, as other methods of pun
ishments? hid failed. For missing !es ns
had been in the habit of giving them ;ive
or ten strokes with a ru'er. She bel cved
that whipping was neccessary to enforce
discipline. The children admitted that
when the frills were spanked their faces
were toward the school.
Mr. Mills explained to the Committee
why he whipped the boy Wise so severely.
He had threatened to kill Mrs. Mills, and
sfcrucK her a severe blow ia the face with his
fist, the scirof which was exhibited. He
immediately ran out of the house after he
struck her, and this was why he remained
out ail night. The boy had been in jail,
and once had been examined for insanity.
Mr. Mills flogged the boy pretty hard, as
he thought the case fully warranted it
The boy had expressed a desire to go to
California, saying he could get work, and
he was allowed to go. He was ninet-en
years old, and well able to earn his living.
He was not sent surreptitiously, but with
th consent of the Board. Tho boys, as a
rule, Mr. Mills said, liked to go to church
Those who did not wish to go were lecked
up to deprive them of tho pleasure of
roving about and running away to play
base ball with hoodlum boys of the town.
They had been taken at different times to
the Catholic, Me'hodist and Presbyterian
churches, but as a rule to the Episcopal
church, because Mrs. Mills was a member
of that church. He had forbidden them to
call on the Weebs, because he believed that
they were trying to break up the
discipline of the place and poison
the minds of tho boys. Mrs. Quinn is
a discharged laundress. He thought she
had done more than any one to ferment
public opinion regarding the Home and had
written lying letters in all directions to
make all the trouble she 'could. Every one
who had ever been discharged was the
sworn enemy of the Home, and the storie3
that tho initiates were dirty, lousy and
starved came from these irresponsible sour
ces. The rod hr.d been used freely where
the children were incorrigable Miss Har
ris said that she whipped the children as a
last resort Sometimes twice a week and
sometimes every other day. Some of the
girls were very impudent. One girl who
had been whipped resisted her and said
that she would not allow herself to b pun
ished. Here tho girl, aged eleven years,
rose up and explained to the Committee
that Miss Harris had threatened to lay her
across her kn.-e ia presence of the boys,
and it was only on this occasion that she
rebelled. This Miss Harris denied. She ad
mitted slapping a girls mouth, but did not
