Madison, Wis.—Wisconsin's new capitol will be a sumptuous structure compared with the building the state fathers occupied when they gathered in legislative session in 1848. The de velopment of the great commonwealth is shown in the required amplification of its statehouse. The legislature of Wisconsin has far outgrown the mod est little building which at the time of Us erection was considered the finest of its kind. It has demands that the enlarged capitol could not meet, and so the old will give place to the new. Work on the new structure is being rapidly pushed, and at the meeting of December 27 specimens of the best grades of building material for the outside walls were submitted by Architect Post. anxious to have the capitol building located within their limits, and many a bitter contest was waged over its location. None of the seventeen appli cants succeeded in securing it. A town was laid out especially adapted to its needs, a site unrivaled in nat ural beauty by any Wisconsin town. The location of the present state capitoi was selected by James D. Doty In the early days many towns were in 1836, and In December of that year when the legislature convened at Bel mont, an act was passed to establish the statehouse at Madison. There Mineral had hopes for them if the capitol was erected at the point, advocated. It was decided that the permanent were many reasons why this site was selected, and chief among them was the central location. Milwaukee, Green Bay and the lead mining region in the southwestern part of the state were the principal centers of immigration and of activity, so in selecting Madi son the distance from any one of the points would be about equal. The Wisconsin territory had belonged-to the Michigan tract. It was partitioned and organized at Mineral Point July 4, 1836, into the territory of Wiscon sin. The first legislative body met at Belmont and there was a long struggle as to where the capitol of the new state would be permanently located. Seventeen towns desired it and each had Inducements to offer.

(Southern Girl Who Has Had An Un usual Career.) Hospital for the insane at Williams burg, is the only woman physician in the state and probably in the south holding a responsibile official position under a state government in a profes sional capacity as a doctor of medi cine. Dr. Bullard, who is yet in her twenties, looks younger than her years. Her social standing is so high and her beauty so marked that she could long since have blossomed Into a belle, hut she would have none of it. She has been a bookworm from a child, devouring subjects far beyond her years, while other girls were yet with their dolls and their toys. Dr. Bullard graduated from Wads worth high school, -Radford, where she was born and reared, at an early age. She attended a school at Madison, Wis., afterward taking the profession al course at Farmville, teaching three years in the public schools of Pulaski after her graduation. Hut the science of medicine, to which the child had been attracted, now lured the girl, and. broadening her studies as her years advanced, she in time obtained her degree as a doctor of medicine. To achieve this end she became a trained nurse, practicing her profes sion at the bedside of her patients for several with commission consisting of James D. Doty, A. A. Bird and John O'Neil was appointed by the government to begin work at once. On July 4, 1837. the cornerstone was laid with ceremonies appropriate to the occasion. The leg islature of Wisconsin met for the first time at Madison in 1838, hut, as the capitol building was not at that time in a suitable condition Tor occupation the session was held in the basement of the American house, where the an nual message of the governor, Henry Dodge, was delivered. During 1836 and 1837 the national government ap propriated $40,000 for the capitol building, Dane county $4,000, and the territorial legislature aDout $16,000, making the complete cost $60,000.

The building was enlarged from time to time to provide for the growing wants of the state. In 1904 a portion of the north wing and the greater part of the interior of the capitol was destroyed by fire The first legislative hall of Wiscon sin is still standing and there many earnest people in the state who are pleading for its restoration, or at least, to have it saved from the dese cration it is at present subjected to. At the time when the first legislative body sat in conference, the building was a story and a half frame house, battlement fronted. It was at the meeting in this humble place that the territorial administration was ganized, the territory divided into counties, county seats established, ways and means of borrowing money discussed. This birthplace of the great j state of Wisconsin must always be of ' interest to its citizens, who can forget the wisdom and forethought of the pioneers who, meeting to establish a great commonwealth, laid the foun dations for the good of posterity. The old building at Belmont Is perhaps are or never nothing more to many than any other old landmark, but to the earnest minded it stands for something more. Dr. Bullard is the youngest daug*. ter of Mrs. Meta G. Bullard, and the late Daniel Bullard, who settled in Vir ginia prior to the civil war. Though a native born Virginian, she conies from Puritan stock, uniting the energy and progressive traits of the Yankee with the warm-heartedness and gener ous impulsiveness of the south.

"You are very much concerned, notice, ajid It is well you may be so, for the happiness of Ireland is hang ing by a thread this minute. 1 can not stay longer with ye," says he.

At dawn of day, to-morrow morning," says he, "if you look into the water of my pony's tracks, and see that it is clear, you may know that we have won the battle, and that Ireland will have the fish. But, if, on the other hand," says he, "you see the water in the hoof-tracks [ bloody; then woe, woe! to the pooi fisher folk of Ireland--the Irish fair ies have been defeated and the her rin's will be leaving the haroors."

And lie ran out of the house as hard as he could, and then there was another bugle-call, an' another, every one of them louder than the first. And all the people ot the countryside had been drawn out of their beds in mortal fright; an' they were all out, too, like Patsy, an' they lookin' up into the sky where the bugle calls were coming from. But not a thing could they see at all, at all. Only then, after the bugle calls they seemed to hear hands play ing fighting tunes, and overhead, the quick tramping of men, and the neighing and prancing of horses, and then the clink and clatter of steel, and the roars and the shouts of thou sands; and then the cries and the groans, and the moans of others ming ling with the din—all seemin' to hap pen somewhere far up in the sky. And the smith, whose terror was not light, kep' walkin' about as if he was on harrow-pins, an' him prayin' God to bless the Irish fairies with vic tory. The first streak of dawn found Pat sy bent over the hoof tracks an' ex aminin' them. An' behold ye! he found them one an' all, blood red as a winter's sunset! The great fish eries had never been greater than they were just at that time in every bay in the Irish coast, and a spright ly man might- easy walk completely around Ireland without putting foot, either on water or dry land, simply stepping from fishing boat to fishing boat around the coast, but within a week from the night of the sky battle there was weeping and wailing, for a boat might shoot its nets at night, and lift them In the morning, and find sorra a fin in all of them. And the great Irish herrin' fisheries disap peared from that day. Whereas Scot land suddenly became noted for its flshin', an' its new found fame was in no hurry to desert It. And the sovereigns! oh, the sov ereigns? Patsy Rogan was so dumb founded by all happenings that he forgot to change one of his sov ereigns as directed (which is the sure and only way of holding by fairy gold), and forgot every mortal thing about them till some time in the next day. And then when he slipped his hand into his waistcoat, pocket where he had put them, he pulled out —ten withered beech leaves. There wasn't great sore on Patsy for the loss of the ten sovereigns, for he was a man who never had his heart money, but there was sore and mighty sore on him—and small won der—for the woeful calamity that had come on the country, a calamity that the poor fisher folk of Ireland have lived long years to lament.

In speak ing about it recently, he said: "My body was run down and in no condi tion to withstand disease and about five years ago I began to feel rheu matic pains in my arms and across my back. My arms and legs grew numb and the rheumatism seemed to settle In every joint so that I could hardly move, while my arms were J useless at times. I was unable to Jj sleep or rest well and my heart pain- m ed me so terribly I could hardly stand MB It My stomach became sour and ■ bloated after eating and this grew IE so bad that I had inflammation of k i the stomach. I was extremely nerv- fJ ous and could not bear the least D noise or excitement. One whole side of my body became paralyzed.
