ing of the tragedy.
Greissler, employed for five years by

Mrs. Geissler, when informed of the

had received only one letter from her

Paul Adolphe. Darde, a Young French
Paris, July 15. Paul Adolphe Darde,
awarded the envied Fans Salon na
tional prire for his marbles "faun" and
"eternal suffering," is greeted by
critics as a genius, in the real sense of
that abused word.
Darde, in the simple telling of his
career, stands out among artists. He is
not trained in the academic way. He
was a shepherd in the region of Lo
deve, in the wine country of southern
France. Son of a small farmer, he
watched a flock or worked the ground
until he was 20. He fought in the war
and to-day, famous, he is onlv 31.
The big, powerful, blond-bearded
peasant, began drawing, he says, when
he was eight hut felt his own way un
til he took a drawing course in the Lo-
deve high school and later studied at
Montpelier, getting as he savs, guid
ance in his first steps. Through the
counsel of his two art teachers he
came to Paris. He spent five weeks here
in the government art institute and
worked three days in Rodin s studio
With that slim "grip of the classic
school and tue modernity of Kodin
Darde began the working in marble
and metal that made experience his
''I have no preference in schools'
Darde says. "I love all that is beauti
ful in art as in life." He has been lik
ened most closely to Ridin, but he ad
mires first of all the work of Jean
Goujon and secondly that of Barye and
Rod in ol modern art.
The "faun" is a massive, vigorous
conception, sneering, cynical and sen
sual. "Eternal suffering," represents a
woman's head, snake-entwined, with
a face, upturned, in anguish and al
most distorted as if with physical

But Chicago Police Are Inclined to Put
. Little Credence on That Theory
After Their Testi.
Chicago, July 13. Delay in presenta
tion of the two indictments voted
against Carl Wanderer was secured by
the police to-day to permit further in

up later this week, the police said.
The mental test taken of Wanderer
soon after the murders will be used in

Insanity, they said. The physicians
who examined h'ira said that they had
not fully concluded their test, but that
they had decided so far that lie is sane
and that his motive for the crime' is
still unknown.

from his friends the police gay thev
have learned that he had many friend
ships with girls, some of which ran

Thomas Richardson, aged 55, was in
stantly killed last night when struck
by an automobile and thrown under a
Boston 4 Maine railroad s train at a
crossing at the junction of Mechanics

their Ford car was very badly dam
aged. The fatality happened at ! o'clock,
Mr. Buchanan and Mrs. Flanders hav
ing started for Hanover. The grade
crossing at Mechanics and Mascoma
streets is reached after a short as
cent, and on reaching the top of the
incline the parties heard the train
thundering along and almost upon
them, Mrs. Flanders at the same, time
seeing a man on foot evidently wait
ing for the train to pass. Mr. Buchan
an endeavored to stop his car and
avoid both man and train, but failed
in both attempts, the man being
knocked down and directly in the path
of the train afld the automobile pro
jecting over on the track so that it
was hit a heavy blow by the engine.
There was time enough, however,
fur Mr. Buchanan to lean from the
car and drag Mrs. Flanders after him,
so that both escaped injury.
When the -train was brought to a
halt the pedestrian, who was later
identified as Thomas Richardson, was
found under one of the drive wheels of
the engine, his body beinor badly man
gled and death probably being instan
taneous when struck by the train.

is an invalid, and two children.
