AGED WOMEN WALK TO CONFOUND OSIER Mrs. Dickhart, 70, and Mrs. Mueller, 80, Finish Sprint Neck and Neck CLEVEIuAND, O.—The Doan's Cor nets four mile walking match for aged women resulted today in a dead heit, two of the contestants finishing neck ami neck. One was Mrs. Susan Dick hart, aged 79, and the other was Mrs. Maria Mueller, aged 80. At the lunch eon which followed the match both were presented with prize cakes. Mrs. Mueller assured the rest of the patty thai Bhe intended to walk back lo her home in East Cleveland when the fes tivities were over. The object of the contest was to prove Oslerism a fal lacy. The winner of third honors was Mrs. Jane Edwards Root, aged Tt>. Fourth place went to Mrs. Wendel Meager, aged SO, and fifth to Mrs. Josephine Van Seven, aped 78. Eleven women started and nine finished without missing a step. Two, becoming a little fatigued near the finish, were persuad «'•' to accept a lift in a touring car provided for the purpose. rs. Dickhart and Mrs. Mueller cut nut :i hot pace from the word go, and dashed down Euclid avenue in a lope, ting for every foot, to the excite rs ni of the spectators who lined the ilks. Sometimes one was ahead, B the other, but never were they mure than a yard apart. Mrs. irt and Mrs. Mueller were still her \sh<-n they dashed up to the door in No. 22 Euclid avenue, and were <>•■■ lared the winners. AH the women were in excellent con dition at tlie finish, and all said they were none the worse for the four mile walk. Great care had been taken that none of the women should overtax her self, and most of them declared them selves ready to do the distance over again when they had arrived at the goal Instead, however, they were en tertained at luncheon and later at the Prospect theater. The first two miles, to Willson ave nue, were covered in just an hour. At the half-way point a halt of twenty minutes was called, and the contest ants wore served with tea and biscuits. At 11:50 the match was resumed, and at 12:45 it was all over, the exact time of the winners being one hour and fifty-five minutes. .Mrs. Dickhart, one of the winners. said she was very willing to walk over the course again right away. She threw her head back and laughed hearitly when her opinion of Dr. Os lei's theory was requested. "If the doctor had seen Mrs. Mueller and myself running that last block to day I guess he would be compelled to change his mind. I have raised a large family and I am a great-grandmother these ten years, but for all that I guess I can bake and cook and keep house with anybody. That is what a woman la for, though there are lots of women who have a very different idea these days." ARM ORANGEMEN Alien Landlord Fears Uprising in Ireland DUBLIN —Fir Douglas Brooke, Bart, a well known Irish landlord, has, it is alleged, made a boast that he has an armory at his mansion on the Cole brooke estate, Fermanagh, and should occasion arise would serve out rilles to Orangemen. The declaration arose out of a speech by Mr. Mitchell, M. P. for North Fermanagh, who said he well remembers when a boy, during the Fenian rising, every Prostestant be lieved he would be slaughtered, and the landlord of the Colebrooke estate served out rifles to his Protestant ten ants to shoot the Fenians. In reply to this speech Sir Douglas Brooke, speaking at an Orange meet ing, is reported to have said: "That is perfectly true. I see nothing to be ashamed of in it. On the contrary, I glory in It. What Mr. Mitchell refers to was done by my father in the Fenian time. I did the same thing at the time of Mr. Gladstone's second home rule bill, and, what is more, taught some of the Protestants how to hold these rifles straight. "There are a good many of those rifles in the country still, and I have a nice little store of them at Colebrooke, and I tell you straight, and I don't care who hears it, I should have no hesitation in issuing them to loyal Or angemen should the necessity to do so ever unfortunately arise. I take as my motto, 'Thrice is he armed who has his quarrel just, but four times he who eets his blow in first.'" LIST OF PROVERBS IN GLOBE PRIZE COMPETITION 1. Strike while the iron is hot. 2.

PROVERB CONTEST COMES TO AN END Continued From First Page a church In Sanborn, Minn., writes as follows: Enclosed please find my solution to the proverb pictures. This contest was not only an interesting, hut also—as you state — an educational contest. It was Impossible for me to put as much time to the solutions or the pictures as I should have liked; but whatever time i could spare was spent in trying to solve the pictures and get the correct proverb. To what extent my efforts have been suc cessful will now soon be known. Though I should not be among the winners. i shall not be disappointed, for. if i re member correctly. "In the race, and not the prize, glory's true distinction lies," and I have been -more than amply repaid for the time and labor put into this con test. I.'! me also be one of those grate ful to you for this contest, and J. assure you of my full appreciation even though I should not be successful as the winner of a prize. Studied Across the Sea Away across the seas in Norway the proverb pictures printed In The Globe are being studied as they were studied by the thousands in this court try, as witness the following appre ciation from a resident of Lake Park Minn.: I hereby send my answers to the fifty proverbs. As a lifelong Democrat and old subscriber to The Olobe, I will s;iy I )iiv«. taken ■ great int.-test in trying ft) lin.l the ripht answers, sitting up many nights to 1' or a o'clock after my day's woik in a store. Th.- proverb pictures I have out out. and together with ■ copy of my answers sent them to my two daughters who have been visiting in the city of Bergen Norway, for the la.st two years. The public libraries of the various cities afforded much aid to the contest ants. In Hastings th"y have no such institution, and as a result one brave woman, a doctor's wife, writes to the manager as follows: In the work done on this.' proverbs I have bad no help, as we have no public library here. I formed the answer* ri^nt or wrong, in my own beam, with what help ni\ husband could five me. An Educational Contest Another appreciation from ■ Si. Paul contestant, a resident on Rose street, voices the sentiment in. many of the letters received: The proverb contest has not only been an educational contest, hut ■ i.-m! pleas ure for m.-, and a recreation to all of the household. I have (tied iimd to Rain one of the prizes, but during this time of proverb si tidy I gained bo much self-control that I sIimII count myself among those of my friends of whom it may be said. "Blessed are they who do not expect anything for they snail not b<- disappointed.*' A confident miss living on West Geranium street, St. Paul, writes in the following optimistic vein: "Catch the bear before you sell his skin." Well, I sold the skin in advance this time, because I am confident I caught one. If not the biggest not one of the wee little ones either. Part of the proceed* shall cover expenses —though we get two papers every morning I found they were not near enough when It came to the end, and the remainder I have "laid aside" for a good purpose. Mostly everyone talks about the pleasure this contest afforded them. I can't say much about that, as I was Obliged to go a-hunting nights, my work not permitting me to go by day. Rut if I am not mis taken, it is by moonlight you make a hit. Interest Widely Spread Interest in The Globe proverb cor.test spread well over the country. Many subscribers living in the extreme eastern and western portions of this na tion were interested contestants, and when the announcement was made that the area for prize winners would be restricted to the residents of Minne sota and the immediate neighboring states, it was received with great dis satisfaction by those contestants liv ing further away. A lady over 64 years of age, living in Avalon, Pa., sends the following letter in, sending in her solutions: Rest assured I am no expert in this line —having never visited a public library, living five miles out of the city of Alle gheny, and having received one prize of one dollar only. Please examine my answers and see where I would rank—even if you still de cide to give no prizes outside of the six states named. I have enjoyed searching for answers—hut of course should enjoy much more the receipt of one of your cash prises. I wonder how many will have the same answer to No. 33 as I have. MRS.

THE DECISION OF THE JUDGES The undersigned, members of the committee of award In The Globe proverb prise <-ontest. having examined and compared the re plies Bent in, announce their conclusions as follows: The total number of proverbs was 50. The highest number of correct answers submitted was 45, and three persons sent in lists con taining 45 correct replies. There were four pets with 44 correct an swers each, six with 43 correct answers, six with 42 correct answers, two -vith 41 correct answers, and a large number of equalities in the other numbers, as shown in the complete list of prize winners pub lished elsewhere. Owing to the many ties in these different ranks, the committee of award determined to follow, in making an equitable distribution of the mon-ey, the rule always applied in such contests. This is to divide among those who are tied for a given rank the total of the prizes for the rank that each would have If prizes were awarded separately. To illustrate: There betas three persons equal for first place on the list, the first prise <>f I2M, the second prize of $125 and the third prize of 575 are added together, making a total of $450. and this sum is divided equally among i'n<> three persom sendirv.? in 45 correct answers, giving h $150. The same rule is applied t.> the assignment of the other prizes. Thus, there are in th^ s"' mid rank four persons standing equal, with 44 correct an B. None of these stands higher than fourth on the total list, there being three lists containing a larger num ber of correct answers than 44. The fourth prise of $50 and three of the next prizes la order of $iT» e.u-h are added together, making a total of $IJ">. and one-fourth of this, or $31.'J5, is awarded to each of the four mill -tants ■crowd In rank. The application of the rule being uniform throughout the list, it is not necessary to explain it further in detail. In order to <lo perfect justi» c to all those sending in 23 correct an swef, the lowest number entitled to any prize. The Globe has added $2 to the entire amount offered, so that all of those upon an equality will receive the same amount. In addition to this. It has been decided to give to those persons outside of the territory within which competition was permitted who sent In their lists for examination such consolation prizes as they would have won if their answers had been accepted within the rules. These prizes are awarded in addition to those contained in the regular list, and the amount of them is over and above the $802 required for the payment >*( the regular list. The committee has been extremely interested in the care and labor evidently expended upon the prepara tion of the replies. —G. H. Bridgman. —George L. Bunn. —E. V. Robinson.

GORKY'S FINGER IS ON RUSSIAN PULSE LONDON, April 26.—Rt. R^v. T. E. Wilkinson, bishop for northern Eu rope, in an article in the Guardian, de ■crfbea an interview he had with tfax ime Gorky at Bilderlingshof during the course of an episcopal tour of Russia. The novelist was differing from a cold caught, he explained, while a prisoner at St. Petersburg in a damp, cold cell and because of an insufficiency of cloth ing. In other respects, Gorky says, owing to the kindness of the soldiers on guard and the jailers, who admire] his writings, he had not suffered greatly. In conversing on the subject of re ligion Gorky declared he had never written, nor would he write, anything against religion. On the contrary, he earnestly desired to see his people taught the true, vital religion. But he had deVoted his time to traveling afoot in Russia, inquiring into religious con ditions, the result convincing him that the monks and the clergy generally were ignorant and unable to teach the religion they professed, and that su perstition and formality pervaded their so-called religion, about which there was no reality. '•They taught that there were sixty or seventy Virgin Marys," he said. "It was sheer polytheism. As to dogmatic teachings, they did not exist." Gorky condemned the war, which he said had ruined the peasants and was ruining the country. Generally it was unpopular and hated throughout Rus sia. The Russians neither wished it nor understood why it was waged; soldiers went to it with the utmost re luctance; it was waged for the benefit of the bureaucracy, not for Russia, Detailing the events of "Vladimir's Sunday," Gorky said he had little doubt that his trial would result in his being again imprisoned. SCHWAB WILL BUILD WARSHIPS FOR RUSSIA ST. PETERSBURG, April 26.— American -superiority over foreign ri vals again triumphs in the complete success which has crowned the visit of Charles M. Schwab to St. Petersburg. Mr. Schwab's negotiations with the Russian admiralty have resulted in the practical conclusion of an arrangement for the construction of a formidable line of battleships of a type which probably will startle the world. Mr. Schwab will leave St. Petersburg to morrow. In addition to those which will be built in the United States it is quite likely that a ya:d will be con structed at a Baltic port to be manned by Russian workmen, but under Amer- ican engineering and mechanical su pervision. The admiralty has accepted Mr. Schwab** propositions strictly on th.ir merits, he having convinced the au thorities that he can produce for Russia warships vastly superior to anything now ailoat or at present projected by any other government. They will ho mostly 16.000 ton vessels of enormous horsepower ?nd of a peculiar type, combining the projectile resisting pow er of the battleship with the speed and wide radius of action of cruisers. They will be delivered fuliy equipped . armor and ordnance. The remarkable mcc in naval architecture and . .>n structiun which these American built ■hips will mark is a well guard. I eret, but it is believed it will Involve the use of nickel steel of great tensile strength which will give greater power With de» reased weight. Mr. Schwab guarantees to create vessels with 20 per cent higher efficiency than any now ex isting. It is understood, however, tint not all the ships will be built by the Bethlehem company, as the time for delivery is a factor. Russia desiring that the ships bo turned over as early as possible. While the Bethlehem com pany will supply the armor and ord nance, other American yards wiJl profit in the construction of the hulls. COUNTESS TOLSTOI CRIES LOUDLY FOR PEACE LONDON, April 27.—"But if czars and generals feel the disgrace of i then let us mothers of all the n revolt against these slaughters which have so rent our hearts." Thus concludes a powerful appeal f<>r peace written by Countess Sophie Tol stoi to a friend, published in this morn ing's Times.

A lost war is not a disgrace, l>ut a misfortune. A spiritually undeveloped.

BOY HUSBAND KEPT HIDDEN FROM BRIDE In Tears He Obeys Parents and Girl Talks of Ha beas Corpus New York—lt is a melancholy ro mance that the spring breezes are sing ing through the trees that line Prospect Park. Brooklyn, near the aristocratic purlieus of the park slope. Through the swelling chorus, as now and then the crash of the trolley gongs and the honks of the automobiles are stilled, one catches the strains of a cornet ob ligato. weird and soul stirring; and thereby hangs the tale. The birth of the new year brought Carl P. Waters and Annie V. Pinckney together. As the old was rung out and the new rung in. Arwiie and Paul Hasp ed hands in an eternal friendship that on March 31 led them across the depths of matrimony. Anrie lives at 668 Sterling place with her parents, and not far away—to be exact, .it 17.'» Seventh avenue—lives Carl with his parersts. Next to Anni*. fails greatest treasure in life is his cornet. With the cornet and Annie by his side he planned to walk down the broad avenue of refined vaudeville, sup porting her and incidentally blasting his way to everlasting greatness. He is 18. she is 18. and it might have been just as he said but for the fact that an hour after Rev. Dr. Adams of the First Baptist church of Brooklyn married them Paul's mother discovered his secret and applied the ctoture rule. Boy Held in Durance Paul was ordered to his room, the while the Pinckneys and the Watersee assembled in joint family conclave. It was agreed all around that Annie is 8 perfectly lovely girl, in fact, just as ■Weet as can be. but apparently Mrs Waters had other plans for her son, for she announced an unalterable in tention at the conclave of having the marriage annulled. Pater Waters agreed with his wife nut the Pinckneys. who seem to be lieve that a cornetist is a good thing to have around, took a stand on higher ground. I believe." said Pater Pinckney. "that when young people feN that « ly they ought to be in double harness. I don't want the marriage annulled, be cause my little girl likes the boy so well." This was the rack on which the con clave broke. ar>l since then there has been an armed truce between the two families, while Carl has kept to his room, awakening the echoes v. Ith dole ful solos on his cornet, and Mrs. \\'a ters. deprived of the comforts of mush , has found her sole consolation in a smelling bottle. Next Move in Court The next move, it is believert*, will be made in the courts. Indeed, both sides haw already invoked the services of lawyers, and a strange young man has made repeated calls at the Ptnckney house for Mrs. Waters without being brought face to face with the object of his search, for it is a strange thing that folks who are expecting to be served with legal papers can detect a process server a mile off. and the mysterious caller hns never got further than the Pinckney front door. There was a brief interlude for the unhappy lovers. Some one with a bane soul attempted to encompass a base end I>y bringing them together. Accompanied by the mysterious stran ger, Paul was sent to the home of his Wife, but a lover of lovers flanked the plotters. Paul was admitted, and the stranger was thrust into outer dark ness. There was s hurried embrace, a sin gle kiss, and the n another parting. Paul was nervous; he was pale. also, and he had d to bring along his cor tl<- Imparted to his wife thai be under a secret promise to say nothing. As ■ newspaper correspondent ap hed the mansion in Seventh ave nue, his ear was arrested by the melun chol) strains of a cornet. As he n the Waters house the pleading notes grew louder, and as the door was open ed th^re was an outburst of sound like the crash of a Wagner overture. Mrs. Waters appeared. Solo From the Dungeon "I say nothing, do nothing." she BafcL "Am saying nothing, am doing noth ing." .\< the ceased talking the strains of raei died out, and a young man, attired, among other things, in a whit vest and a pink shirt, appeared. "Carl." cried the mother, "go back." Carl immediately disappeared. "What will your son do about the marriage?*' was asked. "He'll do just what I say," was the frank response. Then the doleful sounds of the cornet solo were renewed, and, swelling nut ward, mingled with the glad sighing of the breezes among the trees in. Pros pect Park. Lawyer fliu. 26 r O urt street.

FAMILY FUNERAL FOR AGED NURSE NEW YoltK-Three generations of the family of Hofflin followed to the grave yesterday the remains of their old nurse. Mrs. Anna McK-nny. who for forty years had been their steadfast and devoted companion. It was the tribute of the three genera tions to the faithful friend whose de votion had made her one of the fam ily. Mrs. Virginia Hofflin. the eldest of the surviving family, lives at No. 201 West One Hundred and Twentieth street, a roomy brown stone house, in which, one by one as they came into the world and grew through their nursery days, "Aunt Anna" trotted the fcur sons and three daughters on her knee and rocked the cradle. Mrs. Hof flin herself had been trotted and rock ed before her children by this same nurse, and. before her. Aunt Anna had cared for her mother, Mrs. H. Robin son, now dead. That was forty years ago, when "Aunt Anna" first came, and Grandma Robinson was quite a lady. But she found Aunt Anna such a Jewel, and Aunt Anna found her children such jewels, that they would not separate. Aunt Anna was 75 years old when she was suddenly stricken with heart disease Tuesday. For many years the children she had reared had watch ed over her in her declining days to make her happy. When she was stricken it was a keen blow to them. All the absent ones were told by tele graph, and there was deep grief In the home when brothers and sisters arrived from far off to find that they were too late to kiss goodby to their old nurse. Yesterday the death of the old nurse was advertised for the sake of her "relatives. If they can be found, and the advertisement spoke of "our life long and devoted friend and compan ion." The funeral party went to Kon sico at 1 o'clock, and in it were twenty grieving Hofflins, including six chil dren's children.

THE IMA 11 01 IMi FURNITURE& 409-417 JACKSON STREET AUSTRALIAN BLACKS HELD IN SLAVERY Government Plans Legislation to Protect Them From Crue' ty and Oppression LONDON — Speedy legislation Is promised by the government of West ern Australia to safeguard the rem nants of the aboriginal black races in that state from the cruelty and oppres sion of the police and stockmen. At the office of the agent general for Western Australia a newspaper repre sentative was informed yesterday that the state government had already drafted a bill on lines recommended by its chief Inspector of aborigines, but had deferred introducing it pending the result of the Investigations made by Dr. Roth, the Queensland protector of aborigines. Dr. Roth, it seems, undertook this duty at the special request of the state government, and, also at its request, has drawn up a series of recommenda tions an the basis of legislation. Present System Is Slavery The main features of Dr. Roth's pro posals are as follows: The present system of Indentured la bor—which is practically slavery pure and simple— be forthwith aban doned. Employers of black children of school going age to be compelled to fulfill their duties under the education act. Police to be at once deprived of the power of hunting down blacks charged —often on the flimsiest of evidence and often on Done at all — with killing the white settlers' cattle. The system of using neck chains in bringing back fugitives to be prohib ited, and the police to be deprived of their revolvers and rifles.

Hintz, base ment philosopher and janitor poet, will have to leave th • basement where he spent so many pleasant hums commun ing with the muses and. accordin bis wite. refusing to wash. It took the Jury in Judge Brentano's court just an hour yesterday to di that the philosopher po< t was guilty of extreme cruelty toward his wife and that she was entitled to a decree of di \ orce. He will, therefore, according to th.^ decree. be forced to leave hi i b loved basement, and, in addition, can longer amuse himself with pasting on the walls of his wife's residence odea ol love, which she said annoyed i In addition to the decree, Judg ■ Brentano entered an order restraining Hints from pasting anything on the walls of his wife's home, 610 Evans ton avenue. Neither in Court Neither the unwashed poet nor his wife were in court when the decree was given, Hintz having retreated to hi* lawyer's office, while his wife with her daughter repaired to that of her attor ney, both to await the verdicl that was to separate them.

For a while they lived in pea< c, then it is declared by his wife that he refused to bathe or .sash bis hands before eating hi* meals, and finally moved to the cellar and became a very brutal husband. For this and other reasons she began suit for divorce, while the poel returned to the humilitating position of janitor. Soul Still Bursts Forth His poetic soul, however, cried out for action, and, although performing tlie menial toil of throwing coal into the furnace, he still found time to write odea of love to bin mice loving wife. Hintz declares that h# is a much abused man, and says he will carry the case to the highest court In tin- land before he will consent to bear the bur den of iniquity which has been ; upon him by the jury's verdict. In i^lviiiK his side of the domestic story the Janitor-poel denied that he had an aversion to snap and water, and red that he was in every respect a model husband.
