"CROOK." MR.STODDARD'SLOSS "KLONDIKE." WESTYILLE. FAIR HAYEN HEWS No Identification of Man Killed on Shore Line Schooner Snow Chartered. tp to a late hour last night, there had been no Identification ot tho body of the man killod In Eiast Haven on the Shore Line railroad. The body was brought to the undertaking rooms of 11 W. Crawford & Sons, and It will probably be burled today by the Bust Haven authorities. The man was found early yesterday morning and he had evidently been killed by one of the .nlght trains. His back was broken, but the body was not badly cut up. It. Is believed that the man lived out of town and was . walking on the track when he was killed. Dr. Peck, medical examiner for East Haven, was called lh to Investigate the death. The man was about 30 years of age, There was nothing about his clothing to load to Identification. The schooner Fred Snow has been .chartered by F. Mansfield & Sons to make several trips to Greenport with oyster shells. She had made two trips and went out yesterday afternoon with a load of 5,000 bushels of shells. One of 1m company's steamers towed the schooner out of the river. This Is the first firm of oyster planters to begin planting shells. Several weens ago, ow- Ing to the cool weather of the spring. It was thought that the season for planting shells would be late, but now it promises to be rather early, for the oysters are reported to be full of spawn. Usually tho planting begins right after the Fourth of July. There ore large piles of shells on the shores of Qulnnlplac river and In a few. weeks most of them will be planted. It was reported yesterday that the outlook Is favorable for a good oyster set, but the whole affair Is always most uncer- nw 11,0 n,3ii noa nsnermnn on ouu-k- , me .m-rimim awmca t our-i-tnin.

Early yesterdny morning Are des troyed the barn and'nhed on tho, polo farm ot L. E. Stoddard of this city, sit uated a short distance from the Mil ford lino In tho town of Orange. The fire resulted In a total loss and tho damage is estimated M $10,000, part ially covered by Insurance. In the barn were ihirty-flve tons of hay, seven horses and polo ponies, two cows, two calves, and one pair of oxen, all of which were destroyed. Tho horses wero of the greatest value, one of which Mr. Stoddard had recently re fused $2,000 for. Four polo ponies wero lost In the fire. They wero Crook, Ben Bachus, Klondike and Carvr. Tatters, the coach horse belonging to Mrs. Stod dard, that was one of tho pair that won first prize at tho New Haven horso show two years ago was also loot. In addition to these a two-year-old and a yearling wore burn ed to death. There were other horses at the farm, but they were out to pasture. These belong to John P. Kllfeathor of this city, Joseph H. Thomas of Sims bury, and W. S. Chlsholm, all of the New Haven polo team. All that Mr. Stoddard has left ot his live stock at the farm In Orange are four work horses and two colts. The origin of the fire Is unknown. There Is some suspicion of Incendiar ism among some, but another theory Is that the barn might have been struck by lightning during a storm. aitoist nrnxT stop.

WirV DOCTORS ARE SHORT-LIVED A medical contemporary, says the IPractltloncr, recently drew attention to i the fact that doctors, are a short-lived ,class of tho community. Laymen were naturally surprised. Thi lr view pro- jRumahly ls thnt tho Afiya ot d0ctorB : should be longer In the land than those of other peoplo because they know bet tor tliwn flit.le iiutlnntu n-tl.lt in "tfilrA1 ' when they feel Indisposed or are In the ;way of Infection. Longevity, however, depends far more upon the manner of a man's life than upon the drugB which he swallows; and It Is the doctor's mis fortune that the exigencies of his call- ng oiten mane it impossioio inr mm 10 'practice the hygienic doctrines which . ... i n0 preaches, ohsta rrlnclplls Is one sound maxim on which It ls specially hard for him to act. He cannot afford to lay up and nurse himself for trivial ailments, but murt often be out at tending to his patients In spite of a general feeling of malaise. His night's knows that seven hours sleep Is tho Ideal. Ho may have to tako his meals Irregularly, though he Is well aware of the virtue of regular habits, or to rush out to an urgent caeo In the mid dle of his dinner, though he Is always warning his patients that that way lies Indigestion. Moreover If ho Is a gen eral practitioner those long holldnys which ho ls fond of proclaiming to be essential are very seldom for him. All these disadvantages count for more In tho long run than his acquaintance with tho quickest means of relieving a hendache, or soothing a catarrh: and the sum of the whole matter seems to be thnt the doctor, who mado his own health his chief concern, would have to retire from practice In order to attend to It.

Heymans and WIer.mia have concluded their investigations on the possible heredity of character traits end mental abilities, and announce as the result that the father's traits pre dominate In children, particularly in male, children. The Investigations covered twenty years, and 3,000 physicians In all parts of the Netherlands dominions, colonies Included, worked hund In hand with Heymans and Wlersma, gathering ma terial and giving them the benefit of their personal Investigations. Hero follow sums extracts from tho report, which Is soon to bo given to the scien tific world. "Loglc-The ability to think logically and to formulate thought and express them In a convincing manner Is al most exclusively an Inheritance from the father. "Among a hundred sons of scientific mi-n, or men wno acnicvea rame as mathematicians, twenty-four Inherited ability for scientific work. Concerning the daughters of such men, the per centage was only fourteen. 'All tho rest of the girls were either without ability for scientific pursuits or too In dolent to mako use of their talents. "As to mothere; Mothers scientifical ly Inclined almost Invariably transfer their love for mental pursuits upon their sons, who are unusually bright, having a peculiar attitude for study. The girls do not rroflt by their moth er's wisdom or love of wisdom. "A good-natured father, a man with fine sentiments, will havo sons equally distinguished. The same characteris tics In a mother are not Inherited. "If tho father Is Inclined to crime or to weaknesses of any sort, both his sons and daughters are likely to Inherit these unhappy traits. Of a hundred male parents suffering from mel ancholia, cplplcpny and mental unbal ance, ninety tranef erred .these stlg' mata to their offspring.

The tlSO.000,000 Invested In the war ahlps now In San Francisco harbor would Irrigate 6,000,000 acres ot arid land, and provide homes for 120.009 families, giving to each family fifty acres of land. That amount of money would build a railroad from the Atlan tic to tho Pacific, and such a road owned by the people and run for tho benefit of the people would squeese ev ery drop ot water out of the railroads of the country. v That amount of money would build and equip a national telegraph and telephone system, which, conducted for the people, would squeeze every drop of water out of the privately owned telegraph and telephone systems. That amount of . money, properly spent, would go far toward relieving the people of the tremendous monopoly burden now resting on their backs. That amount of money would build from 60 to 100 great electric power plants for the people, and free them from a monopoly that is .now skinning them. . ' Instead of building more war ships.

A man came to me with a rifle which, he declared, could speed a ball "more an" faster" than anything ever heard 'of in the gun category. He was asked to produce the evidence. It was a small affair, about as big as a Slebold BOO shot air gun. "Fire at that live wire," I demanded. 'It's dangerous, but I'll chance It," he replied, taking quick aim and pulling the trigger. The bullet struck the wire, and when X looked at tho man he was dead. The eleetrlo current had passed through the' whole in the air made by the bullet reached the muzzle of the gun and given tho death stroke. It was as a lightning bolt from a clear sky. New York Press.
