Dangerous Cult Teachers. This newspaper recently has had its attention called to certain so called "teachers" who are said to be exploiting the doctrine that it is sinful for men and women to live any life save that of the spirit. Elsewhere these wolves in sheep's clothing have broken up happy homes. Beware of the! Should they try to make disciples of their dangerous doctvines, send them out of the community—on a rail, if need be. These spiritual charlatans have broken up many homes separating husband and wife. They peddle some cult that appeals to intellectual people—women in particular. When the learner is believed to be "strong in the faith" the inner teaching is revealed. It is piously put that only spiritual relations should maintain between the sexes. And, finally, the suggestion of "spiritual affinities" —and destruction. It may appear strange that intelligent people should be victimized by such teachers. But it must be remembered that— Every normal human being is hungry for spiritual food. Ho is built that way. The craving is as keen as that of the physical appetite. And the appetite is not always a good judge of what is best. The fads taught by long-haired enthusiasts are not dangerous so long as they do not involve the family life. But when the heaven or dained relations of husband and wife are attacked it means HELL ON EARTH! Keep a eye out for dangerous interlopers wao thus threaten society. When any preacher, or priest, or profit, or medium, or professor, or what not, threatens by his teaching to Imperil the sanctity of the liorue — KICK HIM OUT! Realism in action is rapidly approaching its highest ideal. A Hter- Ery woman, arrested for abstracting articles from a store, offers the plea in extenuation that she was merely seeking local color for a story of shoplifting. Perhaps she might plead that, at the worst, shoplifting for literary effect is mere plagiarism, to which Shakespeare, Emerson, Elbert Hub bard and other literary notables have been notoriously addicted with out infraction of the criminal laws. Perhaps the conditions of which Mrs. Athcrton recently com plained when she said American litrature was too respectable, are thus being remedied. Several illustrious writers of the present day turned tramps in order to gain material for their stories. Not long ago a western liter ary enthusiast in search of "color" spent a night in a jail cell. It is not known that Mr. Hornung ever practiced burglary or that Miss Hallie Erminie Rives ever submitted her unused lips to transfiguring kisses," but there may now be ground for suspicion. Fortunately, the class of novelists who kill people by wholesale in their pages nave not deemed it so important to be exact in their color, else the earth would long since have been depopulated. It is somewhat comforting to reflect that maybe the holdup mar. whose revolver confronts your face at a dark place on the street is only some realor- stuJent of the emotions preparing for the day when he may turn autaor and thrill you and take your money without wai» ing out in the cold. There is high genius in the idea, and it has a wider application than may be suspected. What a wealth of local color the life insurance presidents ac quired to lend lealism to their tales of Action told on tho wituess stand! Cassie Chadwick has threatened and threatened to write a bock out of her experiences. But Cassie is just outside the border line of literary genius—for her story is to be a mere result, not the cause, of her misdoings—and so she goes to the penitentiary instead of into the ranks of the immortals of realism. For years Charles T. Yerkes had been a mighty world power in finance; today he lies alone, as poor as the poorest. For years, powerful bankers turned over their gold at his sum mons, legislative bodies submitted to his will, and vast enterprises moved with the wave of his hand. But today he lies as helpless as a stone, with wealth, ambition, power stripped from him, with few in all the wide world to do him reverence. Of what avail to him, or anyone, is the wealth, ambition, power ■which fall to embrace the love of wife, the honor of children, the faith of friends? What Is It worth to a man to own millions and command legisla tures and courts and control the destinies of thousands while he lives, if he has not created In any heart enough love to close his vacant eyes •with tender touch and to embalm his memory with the salt of tears? What is the good of a great, costly marble mausoleum, if there are few virtues to record thereon? Yerkes has been a conspicuous type of the men who get rich no matter how. To him, as to many others, if an end was to his interest any means were Justifiable. It is said, he had a lawyer at his elbow every minute to tell him Just how far be could go and yet evade the laws. In Chicago he was the center of a constant cyclone of charges of corruption. Looking upon him as be lies today, with his long estranged wife holding aloof, with friends forgetting him to discuss his property, and with the public prints of the r.d retailing only shady reminiscences Of him —does it seem that his "success" has been worth while? Is such a life a fit example for auyone to follow? Real Realism. Is This Wealth? Entered at Spokane.

AMUSEMENT RESORT FOR SAN FRANCISCO SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. s.—This | city is to have a 175,000 amuse-' ment project, comparing in its equipment and extent with the "Dreamland" and Luna Park of Co ney Island and she White City of Chicago. A company of San Fran cisco capitalists hasp become in terested in the enterprise and its financial success is assured. The big playground, which is to be known as "Dreamland," taking its name from its Coney Island proto type, will occupy three complete city squares, covering an area of between 11 and 12 acres. The site is a beautiful one, looking down upon and embracing within its prospect the famous Golden Gate, where the ships come in from the sea; the bay of San Francisco, with its islands, shores and beach es, and the beautiful mountain scenery in the background. ■ ■ ■ It Invigorates, strengthens and builds up.

Grauman, the founder of "continuous vaudeville," Is at the head of this enterprise. He has made a study of the Coney Island and Chicago enterprises and has decided that San Francisco, which, he says, is the best amusement city in the world, proportionate; to I Its population, will liberally sup port such a venture. The construc tion of Dreamland will bet com menced during the present month, and it is hoped to have a fdV cc of a thousand men employed, from then until June 1, when the for mal opening takes place.

(Scrlpps News Association.) ©cult MHy §&®[ryo WHICH JUST SHOWS THAT FIRST LOVES ARE NOT EVERYTHING ANYWAY. John Rogers had often talked with Clarice, his landlady's pretty daughter, and one day she told him her story. "I will tell you, Mr. Rogers. It was when I was in Philadelphia that I met Harris —Harris Hell — and I was —so different there, at the parties I went to with Fanny, that he thought I was pretty and told me so, and said that he loved me and wanted me to be his wife. I had a pretty white dress, you know," timidly glancing at her fad ed calico, "and we were engaged— and I could scarcely believe it, but I was very happy. He was such a handsome gentleman, too, and so aristocratic. At last he came over to see me; and he saw mamma and the children, the house and the hoarders, and I can't tell you how it was, but he was different. "I was proud, Mr. Rogers, though we are poor now, and I broke it all up. It wasn't the love I had dreamed of. I thought life was a fairy tale and love was beautiful." "Clarice, would Tt help you any to know that, I, too, have suffered as you have suffered?" asked John. "I, too, dreamed of love, and I found a woman whom I believed had given me that love; but be cause her parents found in me only a plain, poor man, no longer young, she gave me up.'. He stopped speaking and was gazing abstractedly out of the win dow, hard lines of regret and pas sion written on his face. Suddenly he felt a little soft hand laid directly on his, and Clar ice said: "Mr. Rogers, I am so sorry." He wrung the little working hand and then he rose and went to his room. One day as he sauntered into the parlor toward dusk, hoping that his little friend would come there with her basket of mending and sit a while, he heard the rustle of fem inine garments, and looking up saw that his landlady stood before him. Mrs. Dean was a woman who prid ed herself on her former dignity. "Mr. Rogers," began the lady, with unusual dignity, "pray be seat ed. I have noticed for some time past, that you have frequently of evenings found your way into my parlor and passed the time in con versation with my daughter, (Mar ice. My daughter Is in the habit of assisting with the housework, in cleaning and putting in order the rooms of my gentlemen boarders. This morning I entered your room expecting to find Clarice dusting— dusting with all (lie light-hearted* ness Inspired by a well fulfifllled duty," continued Mrs. Dean, waxing eloquent. "Imagine my consterna tion when I found her kneeling at the bedside, her face pressed against the pillows in tears. She sprang up and tried to hide her agitation, but, Mr. Rogers, I am a widow of eight children and a large household of boarders. I can not have you trifle with the feelings of my daughter." "Madam," said John Rogers, "if I had not already learned to love your daughter this tale might work Upon my sympathies and appeal to my honor, but I could never make love pass from my lips that my heart could not echo. I cannot applaud your course in revealing your daughter's emotion, and which she no doubt would bitterly re- OF INTEREST TO THIN, WEAK PEOPLE.

He bowed and passed out of tho room. • * • It was a calm June afternoon. "John," said Clarice, touching his arm with a certain timidity she had never quite overgrown, "life is a fairy tale, and love is beautiful, only it comes in a different way." "And this Is the love we lull dreamed of." And John Rogers looked into the dewy brown eyes of the little girl in the calico gown, and pressed her close to his heart. A Thousand Dollars Worth of Good.
