the little spirit " playmate of Corinne
Alberta Mayfield, 5-year-old daughter
of A. U. Mayfield, a newspaper man
of this city .concerning: which an ar
ticle appeared in this paper a few
weeks ago, has created a wide interest
among- people who read tlie story and
want to know more about the strange
visitation of the spirit-companion of
the little Denver girl. Hundreds of
letters have poured . into the Mayfield
residence, at 1065 Josephine street,
and dozens of persons have called,
either out of curiosity or sincerity.
The article which brought about this

One woman traveled all the way

Indianapolis, Ind.. April 27. 'Homer
N. Motsinger. of Lafajette, Ind., and a
former Purdue University student, has
brought a singular honor upon his
alma mater and has just accomplished
by the use of a new invention of his
own design a seemingly impossible
feat. In an official test held in this
city he proved his claims of being
eble to generate enough energy from
a lone gallon of gasoline to send the
equivalent of a one-pound weight ap
proximately three and one-half times
around the world. He attached his
new carbureter to an old automobile
In making the official test and after
breaking all world's records declared
he would be able to evei better the
remarkable showing under more fa

likely stamp him as among the great

Cleveland, O.. April '30. Dr. Jean
Dawson of this city is the nation's
most aggressive little fly-swatter.
Waking or sleeping, in repose or in
action, she is always actively or po
lentiatfy swatting the busy little car
rier3 of disease against which she has
declared 'War to the death.
Jler work in this line is largely
executive. fShe is head of the biology
department of the public schools and
thus is able to get in educative fly
swatting work on the youngsters.
These amateur fly destroyers are paid
ten cents a hundred for victims. She
sees to it that each child is given a
swatter, furnished by an enterprising
ir.i philanthropic ice cream company,
which has wearied of the painful old
jokes about flies in the cream.
Net only hss she enlisted the chil
dren and ice cream companies in her
fight, but she has the civic bodies on
her side, while the newspapers regard
her as good copy and devote much
space to her annual fly-swatting cam
j.sdems. The consequence is that Cleve
land now is the most nearly fly-less
city in the country and is steadily im
proving. Dr. Dawson, when not busy directing
fly-swatting, teaches biology in the
normal school and gets in much fl-t
swatting propaganda on the side. She
has the prospective school ma'ams en
listed in different sections of her fly
campaign, working up their enthu
siasm for missionary work when they
themselves become teachers.

"Sunday morning Murdock noticed a
blotch on the blade, he said, but paid
little attention to it. A few days later
when he went to shave, he was horri

had taken on perfectly the features of
his dead child. He said he had used
every effort to remove the image, but
in vain.
"The story' was doubted by neighbors
to whom it was told, but when shown
the razor blade all admitted the like

lieve that the image is a psychological
problem. Mrs. Murdock is inclined to
believe that the image protends some
calamity which is hanging over the
"The Murdocks are not spiritualists
and have no particular religious lean
ing." Little Corinne Alberta Mayfield con
tinues to daily play with her spirit
playmate who, she says, lives "above
the clouds." "Margie" plays with her
for hours. They dress their dollies,
jump the rope, cut out pictures and go
since she was one year old, at which
time she first began to lisp the name
of "Margie." The parents make no at
tempt at solving the mystery, but
many students in psychology have
ventured the assertion that the play
mate is a reality and not mere imagination.
Accounts of some of the strangest
coincidents in connection with the
mysterious appearance of the spirit
child, have come in the ma'l. One
letter, written by a very earnest and
Intelligent woman from Rochester, J.
Y., recounts a story that is even more
strange than that which is told of the
little Denver girl.
A Strange Story.
The letter is directed to Mrs. May
field,' and in part is as follows.
"Dear Mrs. Mayfield: A few days
ago I read about your little sirl, Co
rinne Alterta, who has an invisible
little playmate called 'Margie.'
"I could not forgst it; it is so
strange. The picture of your little girl
which appeared in the newspaper
looks like a little girl we l ad whos

She died in June, 1911. She, too. had a

"When Margie was first taken sick
she used to say a little girl was in the
room with her, dressed in white with
white shoes and stockings. It hap
pened to be a Sunday when she began
saying she wanted white shoes and
stockings like that other little girl. She
called for them all da yand we could
not get them (it being Sunday), and
when Monday came and we could get
them for her, she never knew it.
"Dear little Margie, when we laid
her away she had on her last pair
of white shoes and stockings.
"At the time Margie was sick our
other little child, seven months old,
whom Margie loved dearly, was very
ill, and we did not expect him to re

with baby in my arms and 'though
Margie had been buried two days, I
heard her call out to me:
" "Baby's better, mamma.
"It was just dawn, and I heard her
speak as plainly as I ever did when
she was here.
"I am not a spiritualist,' but I know
Margie's spirit came back then, and I
cannot help but wonder does that little
spirit visit your Corinne?

"What do you regard as the strongest
argument in favor of eyual suffrage in
Florida?" one of the fair ones was
asked. "The fact that the men of Du

legislature," was the reply.
Throughout Monday there was some
tall sparring over the bills seeking to
ckse motion picture shows and other
innocent places of amusement on Sun
oays, with champions appearing on
both sides of the question. Citizens
of Tampa, Jacksonville, Pensacola and
other cities of the state protest against
the right of representatives from

they shall conduct themselves on Sun
day, or any other day. It is not be

Piano, 111., April 29. A eugenic
problem of pressing importance is
eeen in the case of Herman Coppes,
the fourteen-year-old boy who has
confessed that he killed Mrs. Maud
Sleep and her two Infant children a
few days ago on a farm near Klgin.
The boy is considered a baffling exam
ple of youthful degeneracy.
The toy, born in this vicinity, oomes
of stock which eugenists claim should
never have been allowed to marry.
The boy's maternal grandfather was
a man of loose living and spendthrift
habits who dissipated a fairly large
fortune left him and now lives in ab
ject poverty in a tent on the banks of
the Fox river, an outcast, a nomad,
and a charge upon the community.
The daughter of this man, the boy's
mother, was defective mentally and
morally, not aggressively vicious, but
a helpless and harmless Individual

boy's father, has no family history,
