From the Bohemian. - v Why Life on the Small arm is Advantageous ByJamesJ. Murphy, T has been said that to find a city .family of three generations is a rarity and that when you do And such a group it is apt to be sterile and anaemic. . The city .has its advantages for the un married and .the married who are childless, and neither of these classes is normal. Parents who voluntarily condemn their off spring to a city childhood are inflicting on them the worst injury which they can endure and one which is irremediable. The true policy would urge a combination of city and country life, and for this purpose the small farm is the best unit. With modern methods of trans porting people, goods, power and information there is no reason why the popu lation of our great cities should not be spread over large areas, nor why there hould not be that diversification of employment, agricultural or mechanical, -which makes possible the realization for every one of the best in life. The city as it now exists is the cancer of our civilization, and the tendency to congestion grows daily greater. It may seem inevitable, but sooner or later the tide must run the other way. I have no eulogies to waste upon arural virtues. Their praises have been sung by people who were often mak ing believe. But it is equally true that few become keenly alive "to the pleas . tires of health but those who have lost it. Is it, therefore, to be urged that we become invalids? The city people whom you champion, as soon as their means allow it, make for the country to rear their families and spend their declining years under conditions more favorable than the city can offer. Your able rustic makes for the city, but that, judging by your own dictum, is only an evidence of his undeveloped taste. Brought down to an analogy, it is much like dis puting the relative value of the taste for champagne and forpring water.

' Ho M ' 5 ' . Pertinent Cartoon by Sullivant, In the New York American. - WOMAN'S ACTIVITY IN THE DAY'S NEWS GIRL TEACHER YINDICATKi; FOR ADJUSTING GARTERS ! NEW HAMPSHIRE WIYES " MAKE GOOD DEPUTY SHERIFFS Says ( Charges Are Result of "Spite Work by Jealous Women. Cleveland, Ohio. Charged with adjusting her garters in the pres ence of the pupils, Miss Pearl Gray, principal and teaching staff combined of the public school in Chardon, was triumphant in a trial before the Board of Education of the pretty lit tle suburb. The trial was marked by much display of bitterness on the part of a score of women. They ex pressed their disapproval of the ver dict In direct and forceful terms, and one indignant matron was applauded when she exclaimed: "It .lust goes to show what a woman who's said to be pretty can do with a trial board composed entirely of men. I'd like to have been on that board." Miss Gray took her victory quiet ly. She said it was only wbat she had expected, and intimated that ihe charges were the result of "spite work," and she further expressed the opinion that there "are a lot of jeal ous women cats in Chardon." Asked for an explanation, Miss Gray said she could talk if she wanted to, but the fact was she didn't. The sig nificance of her statement, however, may lie in the fact that Miss Gray is conceded by one-half of the popu lation of Chardon, at least, to be the prettiest young woman in the town. There were six charges in all against the young teacher. First, of course, came the allegation that she frequently raised her skirts a few inches in adjusting her garters. Then, in turn, were read the separate counts, that she often immodestly ar ranged her skirts in the presence of the pupils; that she was in the habit of sitting with her feet on her dosk while she read novels; that she used improper language; that as janitor of the school, in addition to principal and teaching staff, she burdened the taxpayers by burning too much coal. Five children, ranging from seven to thirteen years of age, were called, as witnesses, but they proved of no avail, because they recited their testi mony as if they were reciting a fa miliar lesson to MisS Gray Miss Gray was easy and smiling on the stand. She moved the wit ness chair until her back was turned to the hostile female contingent, and then she beamed her prettiest upon her judges. These veueraole guar dians of Chardon's moral status con tinued to face the fair witness in dignified sternness, but it was assert ed by more than one of the aggres sive matrons that the judges relaxed in sympathetic smiles and even nods of approval to the teacher. It took the board just fifteen min utes to absolve Miss Gray from all suspicion She bowed her thanks to each member of the board, and then, in all the radiance of her early sum mer attire, she swept past the wrath ful women, without deigning to give them a look.

Nashua, N. H. The unique experi ment of the State of New Hampshire to induce better enforcement of the laws regarding cruelty to children and animals by appointing two wom en as deputy sheriffs seems to have fully demonstrated its success by the reports made by Mrs. Jennie Pv Pow ers, of Keene, and Mrs. M. Jennie Kendall, of Nashua, and will lead, it is believed, to several other such ap pointments. The work of both women is con fined almost wholly to the enforce ment of laws protecting children and animals, from cruelty. Mrs. Powers has Cheshire County under her juris diction, while Mrs. Kendall is re sponsible for Hillsboro County. The former devotes her time exclusively to the work of prosecuting wrong doers, while Mrs. Kendall's time is only partially taken up by the work, her home demanding the rest of her time. Armed with a camera and a re volver of heavy calibre, and thor oughly versed in the law covering her powers and duties, Mrs. Powers has gone fearlessly about her work, and in the last year has made six teen arrests, killed forty-one horses and caused numerous prosecutions. Using her camera to obtain indis putable evidence, she notifies wrong doers of the law and their duty. Fail ure to kill a maimed animal or a continuance of cruel treatment Is fol lowed at once by arrest and prosecu tion, Mrs. Powers personally assum ing the rfesponsibility of putting the animal out of the way or obtaining relief. Mrs. Kendall has confined most of her activities to -Nashua and the im mediate vicinity, where she has caused many arrests for cruelty to children and animals, followed by prosecution in the courts,' and has had many animals killed. "I often find it necessary ;to make arrests," said Mrs. Powers, "and have locked up many offenders, including a number of men. I have a team and a driver and thus far have not met with any resistance when arrest ing a person. I usually inform a man or woman that I have been author ized to make the arrest,' at the same time emphasizing the fact that any resistance will involve a greater pen alty. As a rule this has been suffi cient." Both deputies are constantly seek ing new means of .bettering condi tions for which they are responsible. They visited Lowell last week to in spect a new gas system for the pain less killing of animals, a method they purpose to introduce into New Hamp shire, and at the same time consulted sl Massachusetts veterinary with a view of having him visit New Hamp shire and give lectures. .

Admiral Dewey and Others Pay Trib ute to the Warrior and His Na-' tion's Great -Rise in Civilizatizon. New York' City. General Baron Tamemoto Kurbki, of Japan, who has been undergoing a severe initiation Into American customs for the last few weeks, got the final degree an American banquet. The joint com mittee of Japanese residents and Americans gave this honor to the vis iting soldier at the Hotfl Astor. Being unconversant with our lan guage, the General missed what Is usually the characteristic feature of the great American banquet, the ora tory, but he sat unruffled and smooth browed . under the speakers dias in the bnquet hall and toyed with his cigar while the flow of words was at its full. Nobody could have read'Ku Toki's face to be indicative of else but the most absorbed interest. The General possesses to the full limit that admirable Japanese characteris tic of assumed absorption. There were almost 800 people sit ting about the tables in the grand ballroom at 7 o'clock. The guest list Included the names of all the prom inent Japanese of New York and the surrounding cities, diplomats and members of legation staffs from Washington, American men and wom en prominent in the business and so cial life of New York. Admiral George Dewey was ex-officio toast master of the evening because of his headship on the American committee of reception, but. the Admiral was modest . beyond precedent and he spoke only briefly, allowing John H. Finley, president of the College of the City of New York, to do the yeoman work. Hailed as the Greece of the modern world and her statesmen likened to Lincoln, Gladstone and Bismarck, Japan was enthusiastically cheered as America's great sister nation. Not the least opportunity was lost to acclaim every achievement of the Japanese. Nearly every speaker gave Japan full credit for-having achieved a civilization of her own. Returning thanks for the compli ments heaped upon them, the distin guished guests paid pretty tribute to American women, whom Viscount Aoki described as "the handsomest in the world." The health of the President of the United State and the Emperor of ' Japan was drunk standing, while the Japanese anthem was sung. It came to an end with a tremendous "BanT zal," started by the Japanese thera selves a wild, ecstatic cry compara ble to nothing in the world and taken up by all the Americans pres ent; and carried along until it died out in a long, fervent American cheer that caused the glassware on the tables to rattle. .-The cheer was begun anew when Dewey, introduced by Dr. Finlay, mounted the platform. He blushed in acknowledgement of the innova tion and saluted with dignity the en thusiastic Japanese who leaped to their, feet, particularly the men from the ships, and hurled a series of "Banzai8" at the hero of Manila. His speech was brief but graceful. . "I wish," said Dewey, "to tender a hearty greeting and welcome to the distinguished guest from that coun try with which our relations have al ways been so sympathetic and cor dial, and which have remained un changed since that day when Japan chose us as her earliest friend." Among the speakers besides the Admiral were: Oscar S. Straus, Sec retary of the Department of Com merce and Labor; Viscount S. Aoki, Ambassador from Japan to the United States; Major-General Frederick D. Grant, General Baron T. Kuroki, Rear-Admiral Joseph B. Coghlan, Vice-Admiral G. Ijuin, the Rev. Dr. Charles E. Jefferson, Jacob G. Schur man, president of Cornell University, and the Rev. Dr. S. Parkes Cadman. KILLS HIS SMALL DAUGHTER Reluctant to Leave Her, Man Expect ing Death Shoots Her. Philadelphia, Pa.

COREY PASTOR RETUB11S FEE The Rev. J. L Clerk Apologizes For Marrying Magnate to Actress. Admits to Church Committee His "Great Wrong" and Humbly Begs Their Forgiveness. New York City. Declaring public ly that he had done 44 a great wrong" in marrying Mabelle Gil man, the actress, and W. E. Corey, president of the Steel Trust, the Rev. John Lewis Clark, pastor of the Bushwick Avenue Congregational Church, of Brooklyn, returned to Corey his wed ding fee, amounting, it is said, to nearly $1000. In addition, Pastor Clark appeared before the Prudential Committee of his church, consisting of the combined board of deacons and trustees, and humbly apologized for his connection with the Corey-Gilman affair. In consequence of his abject apol ogy the Prudential Committee, after r a long and heated discussion, re solved to recommend to the congrega tion to condone the pastor's offense. At the same time they issued a public statement excoriating the pastor and denouncing the Corey-Gilman union in unmeasured terms. The Rev. Mr. Clark was saved from the humiliation of dismissal from his pastorate, it Is said, by the women of the congregation, who ral lied to his support and conducted a vigorous campaign in his behalf. They are said to have won a majority of the trustees and deacons over to letting Pastor Clark down with an apology and a stinging rebuke. Pastor Clark's apology and admis sion of wrongdoing as officially given out by the Prudential Committee at the close of their session is as fel lows: "To the Prudential Committee of Bushwick Avenue Congrega tional -Church: "Gentlemen My professional con duet a3 a Congregational minister in performing a wedding ceremony at Hotel Gotham, May 14, having been challenged, I desire to say that upon reflection I am convinced that with out intention I did a great wrong to my office as a Congregational minis ter, to my church and to the Chris tian conception of the marriage rela tion. "I most sincerely regret aaving used -my ecclesiastical offics to sanc tion this wedding, and I beg pardon of my church and denomination for having, unwittingly and without due examination and reflection, been in duced to officiate. I will humbly receive any censure which may be visited upon me, for I realize Increasingly the ''gravity of my transgression. I have returned the fee which was given me, and ask for such charitable judgment as Christian forebearance may afford. "If this great error, which, was nc with evil intent, can be condonea,, 1 promise most solemnly that in future all' my uses of my ecclesiastical office shall be strictly within the princi ples and practices of my denomina tion. "With profound regret and humil iation, I am yours earnestly, "(Signed) JOHN LEWIS CLARK." Talking to the workers of the Gos pel Settlement at the Waldorf-Astoria, the Rev. S. Parks Cadman, of the Central Congregational Churchy of Brooklyn, used some strong lan guage about Mr. Clark, although he did not mention nim by name. He referred to Mr. Clark as "one of our clergymen from Brooklyn who at the witching hour of midnight so fai for got himself and prostituted his sacred office as to try to put the sanction of God on a union begotten in filthi ness." He saidF "It has fallen upoa his own head, as it should." RUEF PLEADS GUILTY. San Francisco Boss Sheds Tears a He Confesses BoodIm. San Francisco.
