There are 14 fewer medical schools
in the United States than tl:ere were
a ear ago; 1.200 fewer persons stud
led medicine in 1913 than in 1512;
and there was a decrease cf i00 in the
number of medical graduates, accord
ing to figures compiled at the United
States bureau of education.
The reduction in the number rf
medical schools is part of a steady
movement for improved medical edu
cation that has been going on for the
past eight or nine years. The Ameri
can Medical association, the various
state medical societies, and other
agencies, have aroused public opinion
to such an extent that 79 medical
colleges have either ' merged with
other institutions or ceased to exist,
and the standard of medical training
has been raised considerably. Of the
101 medical schools cow listed at the
bureau. 63 are requiring one or more
years of college work as a prerequi
site to entering upon the study of
medicine. State examining boards in
North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Colo
rado, Indiana, South Dakota and Ken
tucky have Introduced regulations, in
most cares to be made effective with
in a year or two. providing that every
applicant for a license to practice
medicine shail have studied two years
ical training. A similar require-,
ment covering one year of college!
work will soon be- enforced by the!
state boards of Connecticut, Kansas.
Utah. Vermont, Pennsylvania and
An interesting feature of the sta
tistics is the part played by women.
Although the total number of medical
students has decreased, the number
of women studying medicine has in
creased. In 1912 there was 18.451
medical students, of whom 712 were
women; in 1913 there were 17.238
students, of whom 835 were women.
Only 70 women graduated this year,
however, as compared with 142 in
Statements made by Cardinal Gib
bons ln a sermon at Baltimore the

fears that the church of which he is

American Institutions. T do not wish
to see the day." the cardinal said,
"when the church will Invoke and
seek government aid to build our
churches or subsidize our clergy. For
tSen the civil rulers might dictate the
doctrines we are to preach."
In other words, the cardinal desires
no unions of church and state, which
uiiiODs serve the best interest of
neither church nor state. Continuing
the cardinal expressed the hope that
"the happy condition now existing
among us may always continue;
when the relations between the clergy
and the people will be direct and the
I people will be direct and Immediate;
iwben bishops and priests will bestow
on their spiritual children their volun
tary labors, and when they will re-
i reive in return the free-will offerings.
the devotion and gratitude of their be
loved flocks."
The cardinal further said that
whenever any encroachment upon the
sacred rights of civil and religious
liberty have been made by professing
members of the church, "these
wrongs, far from being perpetual with
her sanction, were committed in pal
pable violation of tier authority."
The dissolution of the concordat in
France has stimulated remarkably the
growth and influence of the church
there and It is in better condition
than, perhaps, it ever was before, a
fact proving that what is best for the
nation is also best for the church. In
no other country is the church so
prosperous as here, and the United
States is constantly referred to by
advocates of the separatist policy as
a shining exemplar of a nation that
confines government to it own path
and churches to their groove, to the
ult'mate good of both.
Those who sense a design in the
church to control this nation and to
establish here that intimacy which
the latin countries of the old world
are getting away from one by one,
and wisely, take not into account the
fact of the views of such ecclesiastics
as the cardinal and the Americanism
cf leading lay Catholics.
There Is as much prospect that lay
catholic influence ever will be exerted
in benair or cnurca ana state umou
or for whatever policy that wakes for

That, although the deposits are

at least, has cost the government al
ready a loss of nearly 51,000,000. The
service has cost $1,486,000. Against

nection with the postal bank use a
distinctive stamp adopted by the de
partment for this purpose. The use
of these stamps enables the postoffice
accountants to keep track of the num
ber of letters handled in connection
with nostal savines. Of course, the
use of these stamps is merely a book
keeping device, since postmasters do
not have to pay for them.
The banks of the country fought
long against postal savings. Now
they see that the system has been a
great benefit to them. It has brought
hoarded money from hiding places to
the postoffice. which, in turn, has de-
Dosited it with the local banks. Of
Sy2.300.000 now on deposit with the
government. 95 per cent has been
redeposited with local banks.
The postoffice department is now
turning its attention to the problem
of ending the deficit in the postal
bank and making it show- a profit.
This, in the light of experience, it is
believed can be done. In the first
place, the limit of $300 which it Is per
mitted any Individual to deposit, is
too low. The tendency Is steadily to
ward larger deposits by Individuals.
In 1912 the average deposit w-as $S3;
today it Is $102. Accounts are fre
quently turned away because the law
forbids the acceptance of more than
$300 in a single deposit. The depart
ment is asking that the limit be re
moved altogether.
The department deposits the postal
savings with local banks, charging
only 2 per cent interest. The bank,
in turn, loans the money at interest
rates at from 6 to 8 per cent. Banks
pay 3 and 4 per cent interest on sav
ings deposits, and could well afford to
pay 3 per cent on deposits as perma
nent as those of the postoffice. The
department is considering raising the
rate to be paid by banks to 3 per cent.
By removing the limit of deposits a
double quantity of deposits can be
handled by the present postoffice force
without increased office expense. By
these methods, therefore, it is hoped
to make the bank return a profit.

"You know I'd like nothing better,"
returned the other eagerly. "Mr. Hin

a boy. He gave me my first chance ln

"I know. He's helped a lot of other

"There wasn't a clew ln the other

handsome stone bouse on the finest
avenue of the small city.
In five minutes they were in the
death chamber of the mansion and
Sloan was rapping out questions to the
agitated valet faster than the man
could find replies. When the Interview
was concluded they were not much
wiser than before.
"I have not touched a thing, nor has
the doctor," ended Blunt tearfully. "He
must have been asleep, for the papers
were folded on the bedside table, as
was his custom, and the light was out,
although the murderer might have done
"Very true," said Sloan. "Now, my
man. If yon will leave us alone"
Blunt went out and closed the door,
and the two detectives were left alone
in the room from which Mr. Hinman's
body had been removed a short while
after their arrival. The two men had
diligently searched the luxurious apart
ment and after that every room in the
house, and now they stood silently re
garding the only clew at hand.

and any hope that the murderer might

was at once dispelled.
Suddenly Birch touched his chief's arm.
"Look there, sir!" he whispered.
Sloan bent his keen eyes to the floor
and saw the trace of footprints in the

Sloan followed.
The large expanse of flat tinned roof
was surrounded by a fanciful iron rail

haps fifteen feet Birch crept to the
edge of the roof and peered over.
"Funny thing." he commented: "that
iron railing is down on the ground
there looks as though it had recently
fallen. Let's have Blunt up here." Ila
fetched the valot. and the two detec

the astonished servant
"But sir," he protested. "I am sure
It was not broken yesterday, because

"You beard no sound ln the night,

"I am sure, sir. I sleep in the wing
yonder, and at the head of my bed is
a bell that connects with Mr. Hin

early this morning, and she declares
she saw a big blackbird hovering over

sir, and I suppose 6 he's imagined that

"Tery likely," said Sloan ln a pecul
iar tone, and his eyes met those of his
young assistant with a significant
glance. "Thank you, Blunt That will
do for the present"
When the valet had disappeared
down the trapdoor Birch dropped to
his knees and made a searching ex
amination of the roof. In the slight
layer of dust some clew might be
"Ifs here, sir" he looked op with a
smiling face "the tracks of the 'big
blackbird.' And the discovery reveal
how the other two murders were com

watched the movement of Birch's fin
gers ss he pointed out the tracks mari
by the rubber tired landing wheels of
an aeroplane. When the machine hart
made its departure it had carried away
fifteen feet of the ornamental railing
from the roof.
1 "Find a foreigner who answers to
the description of Van Benjidck. If
he is a skilled aviator he's your man,"
was Sloan's decision.
"You remember that the residence of
Mr. Flicklnger is of this same type

Birch as they returned to the office.
"I remember, and I also recollect
that Thomas Benson lived at the Hotel
Bat well, and bis room was in the an
nex, a flat roofed wing.
Once ln the office Sloan picked np
the afternoon edition of a New York
newspaper. Suddenly he uttered a
sharp exclamation and pointed to a
glaring headline on the front page.
"You won't have to look any further.
Birch! Your man's found and lost
gone to bis reward! Listen to this:
'"Another daring aviator met death
early this morning in some unknown
manner. Rudolf Benjidck. well known
as a fearless flier, was found crushed

Robert Birch bad arisen and was but
toning bis coat.
"I'll be there at that investigation."
