he satirical nature of the player. En-
Bering the barber's shop one morning ,

A grunt was the only reply.

' "Why , are you not Richard Mansfield -

"bh , no , indeed , " replied Mr. Mans-
rfield , "I just got out of jail this rnorn-

College to Pay Smart Students.
Financial reward for high standing and
financial loss for poor work on the part
of students of Columbia university is the
novel plan announced by the faculty offi
cers for the year 1907-08. On this plan
tuition is to be paid for on the basis of
$5 per point , a point meaning the suc
cessful completion of work one hour a
week for half a year. This would make
the total course for the three years
amount to $620 , except where deduction
is made for scholarship. Any students
who are credited with- ! ) ! points may re
ceive one point extra toward a hijjhi-r de
gree. Thus it will be possible * for a stu
dent to get twelve extra credits in three
years and for this ? < > 0 will be ( Inducted

Diieoae Almost Entirely Eradicated
i liy Vaccination.
The records of the bureau of health at
Manila show that within the last twelve
months 213,000 have been vaccinated by
officials and many more by private physi
cians. When it is remembered that Ma
nila's population is not more than 220-
000 , it can be understood why , in the
year ended Dec. 31 , 1904 , there were only
27 deaths from smallpox. Ten of the 27
were Europeans or Americans who had
neglected or avoided vaccination.
| During the Spanish regime a law ex
isted making vaccination compulsory , but
1 the chief good which resulted from the
law was that the people became accus
tomed to its existence on the statute books
and did not greatly object to it or strenu
ously resist its application at the hands
> f the Americans. In a few provinces dif
ficulties were met. In these cases vaccinators -
nators were at once withdrawn and the
pueblos left to themselves. Within six
mentis the contrast between the vacci
nated and unvaccinated pueblos was so
marked that the chief men of the object
ing municipalities requested the vaccinators -
tors to return.
As smallpox is both epidemic and pan
demic in the Philippines , the necessity for
a division of vaccination in the board of
health is very great. The original plan
was to organize a corps of 350 vaccina-
tors. That number was considered neces
sary in order to vaccinate the inhabitants
of the islands within three years. Owing
to the depleted condition of the insular
treasury , the commission has been unable
to authorize the employment of so large
a number , and with the small number of
men available the question arises whether
vaccination will not have to be practiced
continuously for many years in order to
immunize the 6,000,000 iuhabiTants who
are now in those islands and their off
spring as it arrives.
Our Optimism Deplored.
Prof. Felix Adler , in his first fall ad
dress to the Society for Ethical Culture-
spoke of the "Present Moral Crisis in
American Life , " and referred to the rer
cent mass of exposed depravity in public
life. He said that the humiliating fact
was that the men high in state and church j
were those chiefly guilty. One thing , he j
said , was almost pathetic , namely , the j '
persistence of editors , writers and speakers -
ers , "when some heartrending revelation
has been made , " in affirming that the
people have the power and ability to set
things right. For his part he has no 1
faith in the fatalism that where the i
masses rule somehow things will come out j
right. Speaking of the Democratic plat
form demand in New York , "that the
fruits of labor of right Delong to the
laborer , " he asks how it is possible for
this to be done under our present factory
system , and insists on the need of new I
laws and new principles upon which to
settle those problems.
A "Woman Enlightens "Women.
Mrs. Sally Morris Corey had some real
ly refreshing things to say to th'e club
wo.men who attended the meeting of the
Society for Political Study at New York.
One was that a woman must be either a
fool or a toady without original or independent - j i
pendent speech if she is to be a popular j
club woman. She said that the business i
woman was all right if she was one , but '
that too many made a pretense of busi
ness , hoping to secure notice or make a
match. She compared the nineteenth cen
tury mother and homemaker with the up-
to-date college girl pursuing a foreign
title"neglectful mothers of unwished-
for children. " She insisted that until we
had women judges , jurists and execution
ers the sex would never be on a real equal
ity with men.
Discontent as a Disease.
Dr. A. R. Mitchell , , surgeon for the
Rock Island railroad , speaking before the
Chicago convention of railway surgeons ,
said that the prevailing popular tendency
to wage war on wealth and corporations
was a form of neurasthenia , which sweeps
over the country like an epidemic. He
said the power which had enable'd the few
to profit at the expense of the many was
the fault of the many. He showed that
men were led emotionally into destructive
methods , consequently the lobbies main-
tainad by corporations in different capi
tals were necessary to their self-preserva-
tion , because of the lower standard growing - '
ing out of perverted nerve action , which
is spreading itself in the form of a hysterical -
terical epidemic.

been enabled to make the predictions
by receiving news of the atmospheric
conditions prevailing over almost the
whole of the northern hemisphere. The
bureau has lately made arangements to
receive daily reports from the Russian
metorological service , and for some
time it has been receiving similar re
ports from the west coast of Europe ,
from the AVest Indies , from Bermuda ,
the Azores , Bahama and Honolulu. In
a few mouths reports will be received
from the interior of Alaska , and within
a year from Iceland. With information
of the atmospheric conditions within
and around the arctic circle , it will be
possible to forecast pretty clearly the
place of the meeting of the air currents
from the south with those from the
north , with a consequent increase in
accuracy of all weather forecasts. Rain
and snow are caused , as the reader
knows , when a cold air current meets
a warm current saturated with moist
ure. Therefore the more one can learn
about the existence and direction of the
air movements the more accurately can
he predict storms.

Heart Disease Carries OfT IS'estor oi
Chicago Judiciary.
Judge Joseph E. Gary , for forty-
three consecutive years a Judge of the
Superior Court in Cook County , died
at his home in Chicago Wednesday of
heart disease. Death , though sudden ,
was peaceful for the "grand old man"
of the Cook County bench. For eighty-
five years the sands of Joseph Gary's
life had been running their course , and
.when the final grain had dropped he
had gained the things that are sought
after and cherished as covetously as
gold the love and veneration of his
fellows. j
Joseph E. Gary was born in Potts-
dam , N. Y. , July 9 , 1S21 , his parents
being of puritan stock. He became a
carpenter and then studied law. In
1843 he came west to St. Louis , work
ing at the bench and reading law dur
ing spare time until 1844 , when he was ,
admitted to the bar in St. Louis , where ,
he remained until the gold diggings at-1
tracted him to California , where he'
practiced law and dabbled in mining.
While en route to the west he m t
Murray F. Tuley in Las Vegas , N. iT.f !
and.'in ' 1856 he located in Chicago , '
where he found Mr. Tuley. They j
! formed a law partnership and their !
close personal friendship continued
until the death of Judge Tuley. |
Mr. Gary ascended the bench of the
Superior Court of Cook County In 1SS8 1
and he was elected at each succeeding
term. He was given a popular ovation
on the occasion of his fortieth anniversary - 1
sary 011 the bench , on which occasion
he sat as an ex-officio Judge of the
Criminal Court. j
; Probably the most notable utteranca
by Judge Gary was that on the sen
tencing of the anarchists , some of
whom were hanged Nov. 11 , 18S7. Ho
said in part : I
The people of the country love theii
institutions. Thoj love their homes. Thej
love their property. They will never consent -
sent that bj violence and murder those
institutions shall be broken down , theii
homes despoiled and their property de
stroyed. And the people are strong eneugi
to protect and sustain their institution
and to punish all offenders against theii
laws ; and those who threaten danger tc
civil society , if the law is enforced , art
leading to destruction whoever may at
tempt to execute such threats. j
; The existing order of society can bi
changed only by the will of the majority.
Each , man has full right to advocate 03
. speecli or print such opinions as suit himself - 1
self ; but if he proposes murder as a
. means of enforcing them he puts his own
i life at stake ; and no clamor about fre
speech , or evils to be cured , or wrongs
to be redressed will shield him from th
consequences of his crime. His libertj
is not a license to destroy.
j Vaccination for Geriu Diseases.
Sir Almeroth E. Wright , the noted Lon
don physician , who is credited with th <
discovery of the opsonic index , whicS
indicates the power of the1 blood to de
stroy diseased germs , is now visiting in
this country , and recently delivered an
address at the Philadelphia College of
Physicians. He said he had reached the
conclusion , after much experimentation ,
that bacteriological inoculation is th
best means to fight any disease that owei
its inception to germs , not excepting even
tuberculosis. The general plan of treatment -
ment is the same with that as with othei
! diseases. After the opsonic test on th
patient's blood the vaccine is introduced
into the body until the blood is suffi
ciently strengthened to throw off its im
H of Churches in Germany.
I The official order book of church mem
bership in Germany , issued by . .Pastoi '
Schneider of Elberfeld , as translated and
, reviewed by the Literary Digest , ehowi
that the number of conversions from tin
. Roman Catholic church to the Protestant
j is considerably greater than those who
i have gone from the Protestant ranks into
j the Roman faith. According to this au
thority , 75,978 members of the Catholic
church in Germany became Protestants
between 1800 and 1S94 , while only 1,054
went from Protestantism to Catholicism ,
The order book draws attention to tha
fact that not only in the empire as a
whole , but in each and every State tha
Protestants have been making the greatez
ains. Relatively these are much greatei '
to France than elsewhere.
Farmers Holding Bade "Wheat.
The scarcity of wheat on the market
indicates that the farmers in the wheat
belt are dissatisfied with the low price
of 50 and 60 cents per bushel and are
forming unions to hold the crop out of
the market. The vast quantity of grain
coming from the Canadian northwest haa
kept the price low.
Mexico Fisrhtinj ? Beef Trust.
The Mexican government has decided
to establish meat markets throughout

prices of meat , so as to place it out of
the reach of the poorer classes.
