CIS GO WHIG BECAUSE OF HOME Startling Assertion of Superintendent of the Florence Crittenton Mission in New ork MINDS POLLUTED IN CHILDHOOD Formulated in Home Loug Before Application Is Made in Legislative Halls to Remedy Evils Prevalent in Many American Cities By Atsvaalcd Press. Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 9.—More girls go wrong because of home condi tions than for any other reason, es corted Miss Margaret E. Luther, super intendent of the Florence Crittenton Home, New York City, -in an address before the International Purity Con gress here to-day. Miss Luther, who spoke on "The Girls Who (io Through the New York < ourts," pointed out that most of t!io £iris with whom the courts have to ileal arc not more than IS years old. "Statistics show that the large number of girls who go wrong are not alone in the world," she said. "Nor are they all wage earners. Girls come to us from all stations and all condi tions of life. In must of the cases the minds are polluted in early childhood. Home conditions are responsible. Out of 150 girls recently brought before the New York women's night court, 259 were not more than IS years old, L while 116 of them were onlv 16 years I old." ft Stories of locked doors and barred ■ windows in connection with white 'V.siavery, are largely imaginary, accord ing to Miss Luther. \ "The men who live on eominercial aoed vice arc the men you see standing op the street corners," she continued. ' ''Their victims are usually silly little giils thev win bv wiles. And the girl such a man can enslave soul, mind and body, is worse than any physical slave. "A .iudae recently told ine that 90 per cent, of the men lie ha 1 sentenced for white slavery, were less than 22 years old. Home conditions arc respon sible for this situation. "Some people are inclined to say that if we had better laws we would "have better living and better home conditions. Character is formed in the ihonie long before man goes to legisla tive halls fo make laws; and the home • makes the man who makes the laws. .'Speaking for New York, I do not be lieve it would be possible to have bet ter or stronger laws. The tiring we Vjieed is workers —persons who make a specialty of fighting commercialized vice." MRS. tiKitßUt: H.

He now is in the Jefferson Hospital, recovering from a bullet wound received at the hand of Dr. Silas 0. Hertz, an aged physician, in the latter s ofiiee, at 1113 Chestnut street. The shooting occurred on the night of October 26. The impostor, who real name is be lieved to be Harrison, not only prac ticed his profession under the borrowed name and diploma, according to the do teefives, but was married aud hud a child born to him under the name of Mcßride. His wife and child are liv ing in Harrisburg. where hp conducted a successful practice for years. Newspaper stories relatiug to the shooting resulted in the disclosures. On the night of October 26 the man who |>osed as Meßridc went to Or. Hertz's office and got into an argument with the physician over questions of anat omy. I)r. Hertz, who is 72 vears old, picked up an old brass-barrel revolver which had not been discharged for more than half a century and fired at the man. Seriously wounded.

The name oil the diploma, he said, led him to take it as his own and he was mar ried as Meßridc, and has a son which bears the same name. The diploma, lie said, is in the hands of a man named Ewing in Pittsburgh. He gave it to Ewing as security for a ?10 loan.

The Ger mans are concentrating there all the men they can get and ceaselessly are hurling them aga'nsr the allies lines. Never ha« this method been directed wit'h as much tenacity and fury as now. Attacks on Ypres More Violent The attaciks on the line from Ypres to ttoe Lys are more violent even t'han those directed against the coast roads and the passages of the Yser. It is the British who bear the brunt of llhese on slaughts. In many places their lines have become so thin, sa.vs an officer n'no has been in that region during the past fortnight, t'hat only by showing obstinacy worthy of tihe traditions of Waterloo are they able to hold thciir ground. Their losses in officers have been terrilble. One battalion of foot guards went into action commanded 'by a non-commissioned officer. Certain cav alry regiments have lost their effective strength.

TUe battle that dec id ed tbe w»r between Prussia aud Aus tria in IStMJ Is known among tbe Ger mans as tbe battle of Sadowa. but tbe Austrians call It the battlj of Koeuij; graetz. In the war of lb 10, between Germany and Prance. the great en gageinent that tbe Germans call tbe battle of GraveloLte is spoken of by the I'rencb as the battle of St. Prlvai. The same thing was common In our civil war. The battle that Is known tn the north as tbe battle of Bull Run would not be recognized by most south erners undee that name. In the eolith It Is invariably called tbe buttle of Manassas. So the battle that the Keel ernl generals called the battle of Pitt* burg Landing was by the Confederates called the battle of Sbiloli. Antielitm is called In the south the battle uT Sharpsburg. Xlie writer, a southerner, whose father was a Confederate ofli eer, was twenty years old before he ever heard of the battle of Antietam. although he was familiar with all the details of the battle of Sbarpsburg. The reason for this is that the op posing armies always name tbe battle from some prominent geographical landmark, aud as they look at tbe field from different points of view they nat urally settle on different names. Thus, at Waterloo, the battle took Us Eng lish name from the little village where Wellington made his final hcadquar tera and whence be sent to Vnglaud the first dispatch that announced bin victory. So in 18t>6 the headquarters of the Prussian army was near the vil lage of Sadowa, whereas that of the Austrian* was near the village of Koe nlggraetE. At Gravelotte tbe little vil lage of that name was an Important point In tbe German lines. On tbe side of tbe French tbe hamlet of St. Prlvat was the key to their battle formation. As long as they held that they were invincible, but when the Germans as sailed it in the rear and drove them out the day was iost.—Youth's Com panion. OUR MEDAL OF HONOR. More Difficult to Win Than Any For eign Military Decoration. Americans of average information know about the Victoria Cross, the Iron Cross, the Cross of the Legion of Honor. These are rewards of hern ism which would mark a man above his fellows even in this foreign land But many Americans know what a mednl of honor is? How many Americans know that tin* modest American soldiers who wear the medal of honor wear a decoration that is among the rarest and most difii cult to win among military honors? The Cross of the Legion of Honor, established b.v Napoleon in ISO-, wbil» founded to signalize deeds of special daring in war. was after given freely for civil distinctions. Nearly 40,00:> German soldiers were decorated witti the Iron Cross in the seven months of the Franco-Prussian war. while in tho more than half century since the crea tion of our honor roll only 3,088 have been granted, and of these nearly 90<! were given under a mistaken reading of the law. The holder of the modal of honor must have "dititinguished himself con spicuously by gallantry and Intrepidity, at the risk of his life, beyond the call of duty." This standard, which bar* out action, however brave. In the course of duty and includes only acts of daring which a man might refuse or avoid without rebuke is said to be unequaled.—Chicago Tribune.
