A man's capability for work can be

"A lead might open right through

surface of the polar sea.
"Should the ice open across the bed
platform of an igloo and precipitate
the men into the icy water below they
would not readily drown because of
the buoyancy of the air inside their

extricated in time, but with the ther

would not be a pleasant possibility.

Patriotic Women Give English
Church Stained Glass Window.
IN HONOR OF 1812 PRISONERS
Gift of Daughters of 1812 to Be Un
veiled In Ancient Edifice at Dart
mouth— Society Took" Up Plan
Broached by Rector of the Church.
In the obscure little Church of St.
Michael's, at Dartmouth, England, on
June 4 will take place a unique cere
mony which will be of international
interest. At this time a large stained
glass window, dedicated to the memory
of American prisoners of the war of
1812 who were detained in the Dart
moor prison and helped to build St.
Michael's church, will be unveiled.
The window will be the gift of the
National Society of the United States
Daughters of 1812 and will be unveil
ed by Mrs. William G. Slade of New
York, the society's national president.
Many memorials have been erected
by patriotic societies of women anx
ious to perpetuate the memory of
American soldiers and sailors who
have died in the service of their coun
try, but none is more expressive of de
votion to the nation's heroes than this
token which is to be placed in a for
Helped Build the Church.
The suggestion of a memorial to the
American men who were captured by
the English during the war of 1812
and detained at Dartmoor, where
many of them died and were buried,
was made by the Rev. Heathcote
Smith, rector of St. Michael's church,
in an article which appeared June 7,
1908. In this the rector of the church
appealed to the American people to
honor the American sailor prisoners
who helped to build the church.
The New York State Society of the
National Daughters of 1812 took up the
matter and after corresponding with
the rector presented the subject to the
national board for consideration. The
plan met with approval, and on Jan. 8,
1909, the board appointed a national
memorial committee, with Mrs. C. B.
Whitney of Detroit as chairman.
A design for a stained glass window
was presented to the committee by a
Berlin, London and New York firm and
was accepted. The window is com
posed of six main panels, each repre
senting a scene in the life of Christ.
The coloring is rich and harmonious,
and the scenes speak the lesson of
brotherly love and forgiveness which
the presentation of the window by
American women to an English church
strikingly illustrates. The inscription,
approved by .the English authorities
and the American memorial commit
To the glory of God and in memory of
the American prisoners of the war of 1812
who were detained in the Dartmoor pris
on between 1813 and 1815 and who helped
to build the church, this east window is
presented by the National Society of the
United States Daughters of 1812.

Suffered Many Hardships.
During the war of 1812 about 3,000
Americans were held as prisoners of
war at Dartmoor, and it is said the
men suffered many hardships on ac
count of the cold, which was extreme
on this bare and rocky shore. Many
died, and, although the bodies of some
were brought home and laid to rest in
American soil, there are still about
218 American seamen buried in the
churchyard of St. Michael's. The
church was built at the time the
Americans were detained, and their
labor assisted materially in its erec
tion. Recently the chapel, which had
fallen into a state of decay, was re
stored, and it was at the time of its
restoration that the rector made his
appeal to Americans.
The annual congress of the National
Society of Daughters of 1812 was held
in Washington April 25 to 28, when
arrangements for the unveiling cere
mony were perfected
The National Society of the Daugh
ters of 1812 hps for its object the
commemoration of the period of Amer
ican history between 1784. and 1815.
It takes up the work of honoring the
national heroes where the Daughters
of the American Revolution leave off.

CHILDREN TO FEED BUGS."
New Feature Added to Chicago Public
School Department. „.,
Kittens, puppies, chickens, pigeons,
rabbits, squirrels, guinea pigs, Japa

birds, bugs and bees are some of the
new pupils that a committee of prin
cipals and district superintendents ap
pointed by Superintendent Ella Flagg
Young has decided to admit to the Chi

The school authorities have decided
to give the youngsters in the kinder
garten grades this strange conglomera
tion of school companions. They want
to inculcate in the children a taste for
nature study, and they believe this
the best way to do it.
In a higher grade of the kindergarten
work the children will take up the
feeding of caterpillars and the study
of the habits of crickets and spiders.
CHEMISTS LAST LECTURE.
Ovation For Professor C. F. Chandler,
Who Taught 20,000 Students.
It was in September, 1857, that C. F.
Chandler, fresh from Gottingen uni
versity, went up to Schenectady, N.
Y., to give his first lecture on chemis
try before a handful of students in the
old buildings of Union college. The
other day in the big circular lecture
room of Havemeyer hall Dr. Chandler
talked chemistry for the last time as a
Columbia university professor, where
he has taught 20,000 students.
There were 500 students and profes
sors at his farewell lecture, but' in all
that number none listened more in
tently than one old man who sat on
the lecture platform fingering a soft
felt hat. He was the only surviving
member of that little group of Union
college students who listened to Chan
dler fifty-three years ago. When Dr.
Chandler stepped into the room he was
greeted with a wild cheer, for the stu
dents had planned a surprise for him.
"Sitting over there in the corner, gen
tlemen," said he, "is Exhibit A." And
here he turned and smiled at North,
Union, '56. The students had not no
ticed the stranger up to that moment,
and all eyes turned his way.
"Edward North," continued the vet
eran chemist, "who attended my first
class at Union college and who is now
a retired civil engineer."
That was all he said, but it was
enough to send the entire gathering to
its feet once more, cheering this time
Then the lecture began. At first the
audience called for a story, but Dr.
Chandler only shook his head.
"I've got something to teach to you
yet," said he. And then he started to
tell them about arsenic and its "run
ning mate," antimony. But, of course,
those who had called for a story were
"A curious thing about antimony,
gentlemen, is that it was the first
thing to be called alcohol," said he,
picking up a large black lump of sul
phide of antimony. "It seems a big
jump from this, gentlemen, to a glas5?
of whisky, but there may be a closer
connection than you imagine. You
know, in olden times Turkish women
used to use sulphide of antimony to
blacken around their eyes—to make
their eyes look bigger—just like the
actresses of today use grease paint.
In other words, antimony and whisky
have one thing in common—they are
both eye openers."
In conclusion Professor Chandler ad
vised the men when they got out of
college not to wait for something big
to come along, but to take anything
that looked good and work themselves
up. The junior class then presented
to him a silver cup, and he drank a
health to them ELO.

HOW TO SAVE BAD BOYS.
Light on Care of Dependent Children
In St. Louis Conference.
"Do not tell a child how bad you
think him," said E. E. Gardner, super
intendent of the^ Sockanosset School
For Boys of Howard, R. I., in an ad
dress before the seventh annual ses
sion of the national conference on the
education of backward, truant, delin
quent and dependent children, which
recently began its sessions in St. Louis.
"Rather show him how useful he can
become. Lead him to think that good
is expected from every one and that
he amounts to something." This was
the keynote of this session.
The speaker defined a state indus
trial school as an institution provided
and supported by the state for the care
and instruction of delinquent children
sent there by the authorities for cause
and whose object it is to fit them as
law abiding citizens, independent of
the condition that was their undoing.
Hotel For "Lady Hoboes."
Progressive Chicago is ready to pro

byes." This is the term applied to
them by one of the city fathers. Free
baths will be a feature, and everything
will be done to help women who are
worthy of charity when they find
themselves in Chicago without funds.
An ordinance has been passed provid
ing for the establishment of a free
lodging house especially for this class
of hoboes, and matrons will be placed
in charge to see that no undeserving
"lady" takes advantage of the gen

New Kind of Bone Fracture.
The second day's session of the Med
ical Society of the State of New York
in Albany was devoted recently to the
reading of a large number of papers.
Dr. William S. Thomas of New York
in a paper on "The Chauffeur's Frac
ture" declared it an occupational dis
ease caused by the slipping of the
crank handle of an automobile. If the
handle strikes the chauffeur's arm it
causes a fracture which Dr. Thomas
found to be of a peculiar character. He
told of several cases where chauffeurs
with dangerous fractures from being
struck by a crank handle have driven
their machines for miles after the acci
dent without knowing that they were
Back to the Land.
Back to the land is the cry today—back to
the dear old farm,
To the fields and the brook and the wind
ing lane, back to their sylvan charm
Back to the little attic room which in
boyhood days you knew,
Where the raindrops pattered upon a roof
and sometimes pattered through
Get up each morn before the sun and milk
the lowing kme
And carry the oats and hay and corn to
the horses, sheep and swine
Bring in the wood and the water, too,
enough to last all day,
Then breakfast eat by candlelight, and ho
to the fields away!
Follow the plow from morn till night,
scatter and so the seeds.
Then get the hoe and hurry along and
chop down all the weeds
Hunt for eggs in the old hayloft and take
your weekly turn
A-helping along the women folk by work
ing the butter churn.
But, oh, for the glorious harvest time.
when you gather the wheat and rye
With the mercury ninety in the shade and
the sun in a cloudless sky
You reap and mow and garner the crops
and never mind the sun
And eat your supper by candlelight when
the harvest day is done
Gather the autumn's golden fruit from
the orchard's loaded trees,
Husk the coin that the frost has nipped
till your hands begin to freeze
Off to the woodland day by day while the
weather still is good.
Mauling the rails to mend the fence, chop
ping the winter wood
Then do the chores that you aid at morn,
and after the stock is fed
Wind up the clock and put out the eat
and then you're off to bed
Back to the land, all who will, but ril
go back no more,
For I got all that was Eoming to me when
I was there before!
