New York, Dec. 2.—Work on the Ca thedral of St. John the Divine, on Morningside Heights, the largest church edifice In this country, received anew impetus last weejt by the plac ing in position of the low'hr half of the eighth and last huge pillar which will support the opal. Efforts 'are now be ing made to obtain the necessary funds to complete the great choir and “cross ing,” which are to have a seating ca pacity of 5,000 persons. It is estimated that $1,000,000 will be required to finish the work of roofing over the choir and the crossing of nave 'and 'transept. Of this amount $200,000 was pledged conditionally last week by a wealthy citizen of New York, whose name is kept secret for the present, and SIOO,OOO was uncon ditionally pledged by another citizen, whose name also is not revealed. The upper part of the eighth pillar will be set in position in 'a few days, and if the balance of the $1,000,000 need ed be forthcoming work on the struc ture will be rushed. Arrangements are being made to begin actual parochial work on Dec. 26. when the Chapter of St. John will start on Its duties, and the new, constitution will go Into ef fect. Detailed plans for the work on the various cifapels forming part of the cathedral are being rapidly finished. Mrs. Gordon King has given sufficient money for the building of the El Columba, or British Rite Chapel, which will be the third on the north side, and work on this will be begun soon. THeTmPOLITE SUN. Tis pleasant of a summer mom, when not more than half awake, To lie abed and let the dreams and visions of the future make Our lives the color of the rose—our plans so fair they seem. And as the moments quickly pass, we dream and smile and smile and dream. But one can’t muse on visions fair, no matter how he tries. When the sun In the morning puts his fingers In your eyes. The world knows the old adage of thi early worm and bird. The sage advice of Franklin from our parents we've oft heard. But for all that we like to doze and wake and doze again. To take from the busy work day a few minutes more—but then, You might as well throw back the sheets and with one Jump arise, When the sun In the morping puts his lingers in your eyes. —Estelle Pease.

Where Faith and Hope are born but disappear, Where caverns large and dark grow colder in their time; And yet poor Mortals leisurely still wander in this clime; But e’er they’ve been bourne to that mystical throne, They sigh and say—Tis strange! For They have but seen what might have been— A glimpse of Life—lt’s change. OBJECTIONS TO THE KINDERGARTEN. By a Kindergartner. Repeatedly the objection is made by primary teachers “kindergarten chil dren make poor pupils; they always want to play.” There is something to be said on both sides. Over-zealousness on the part of a kindergartner does undoubt edly lead, at times, to undue stimu lation, with the result invariably brought about by any excess—craving for further stimulation. In other words, poor kindergarten work may account for Ahe difficulty. On the opposite side, the objection is frequently born of imperfect pri mary cdnditlons, some of them be yond control of the teacher In charge, such as crowded rooms, large classes, poor ventilation, uncomfortable seats — all menaces to the freedom which kin dergarten children are unconsciously led to exD©ct. Sometimes lack of co-operation be tween the two departments will be found at the root of the discomfort. They are so nearly one in many way* that each should constantly con sider the other, the kindergartner studying the requirements of the pri mary school, th.e primary teacher knowing the needs in the or ganism of the child by kindergarten training. Along many lines this mu tual helpfulness is quite apparent, but In one direction there Is often a clash. The normal child is above all things active, and to succeed with him in the lower grades of school his work must be given in active, not passive, form. Mind and body constantly re act upon each other and after impres sion is received nature demands ex- pression. The appropriateness of the outlet Is not always apparent at first glance, as is proven by the following: incident In a Chicago kindergarten some years ago: A beautiful Easter story had been told and the children seemed much Im pressed by Us spiritual import. The kindergartner was beginning to feel gratified by the marked effect when one child burst out with enthusiastic vehemence: "If I had a gun I'd go shoot a bear.” Naturally, she was mystified, but determined to find out the cause of so extraordinary a cir cumstance, investigated the child's sur roundings and found that a father and uncle, who were hunters, had made "kltling a bear" one of the greatest feats of man in the eyes of this little fellow. The expression was unusual In this Instance. It was the mutual outlet, however, demanded by the child’s organism, and was undoubted ly wholesome. If a legitimate ohannsl la not of fered, or If an outlst suggested by the child himself Is repressed, an unde sirable one will probably result. The kindergarten ohlld has bean se trained in thie life making heblt of setluri and reaction. Impression and eajrreaatoii, that he demands it eveu more exactingly than other children. The primary teachers who object to kindergartens are almost always those who for some reason or other do not find the active, the "doing” method, practical. In our own city testimonials from primary teachers are abundant, and only lack of space prevents our giving them here. WOOD ALCOHOL Is Dangerous A* a Drink and In Medical Preparations. From the Medical Record. Up to within a comparatively recent period cases of poisoning by wood al cohol were among the rarities of med ical practice, for so long as the sub stance was manufactured by the old processes its offensive smell and taste were sufficient to deter even the most hardened drinker from using It to sat isfy his craving for alcoholic stimu lants. Since the time, however, that “deodorized” wood alcohol has been placed on the market, under various names, the fatalities from its use have gone up by leaps and bounds. Not only may it be used tn place of grain alcohol In the manufacture and adulteration of spirituous liquors, but it is also largely and widely used as a menstruum tn many toilet prep arations and remedies for internal and external use. The reasons for this practice are twofold. First, and that which appeals most forcibly to hu man nature, is the comparative cheap ness of wood alcohol, it being untaxed and costing but 50 cents a gallon, while grain alcohol, taxed, costs at retail $2.60 a gallon. The second reason Is the ignorance of many manufacturers as to the deadly nature of methyl al cohol . Indeed, even among members of the medical profession views with re Vg, JOatuke- 5 TODY * dear little goose of a. \7L fiM‘ e " "Tf iV° e , ver nohons like hers !

In order, there fore, to decide the question. Dr. Frank Buller, of Montreal, and Dr. Casey Wood, of Chicago, undertook in the be ginning of 1904 an investigation of the subject, under the auspices of the sec tion on ophthalmology of the Ameri can Medical Association. The investi gators found that about 175 cases of blindness and about 100 deaths during the last seven or eight years could be directly imputed to wood alcohol in the various forms in which it is man ufactured. This estimate is a con servative one, and only treats of pub lished instances of death and blindness. Drs. Buller and Wood consider that the investigations undertaken by them confirm the suspicions entertained by many physicians that the fumes of wood alcohol, under certain favorable conditions, are a dangerous menace to eyesight, and they moreover believe that the consensus of opinion is op posed to the statement of the niakeis of the various forms of “deodorized"’ wood alcohol that its external use in liniments, alcohol "rubs” In baths, in cosmetics, hair tonics, perfumes, etc., is always devoid of danger to the eye sight. The practice of substituting wood for grain alcohol in the manufacture of medicinal preparations would appear to be a most insidious and pernicious means of poisoning, and the sale, not only of methyl whisky, but also of internal remedies and toilet prepara tions, manufactured or adulterated with wood alcohol, should be restrict ed by law. In fact, there is every reason why the proposition of Drs. Buller and Wood should be adopted that methyl alcohol In any of Its forms should be treated as a poison, and subject to the laws of the various states restricting and regulating the sale of poisons. A feature of low street life In Tokio is the "kuisha," or moxa doctor, who applies small pads made of certain dried herbs to the skin, then setting them alight, the ensuing blisters being supposed to be most effective as a cure for various elements. Among the doc tors’ remedies, too, are rhinoceros pills, warranted a sure cure for tightness of the chest, gnashing of the teeth and depression of spirits, and “furidashi," a popular remedy for coughs and colds which is said to expel the devils and promote circulation; while musk pills are prescribed as an infallible cure for every ill, from a red nose to sea sick ness.
