HAZING 1 ENDED No Case Is Developed in West Point for Months. CREDIT DUE GENERAL MILLS After Others Failed He Succeeded In Breaking Up the System, for Which Has Been Substituted a Better Method of Discipline. By GEORGE CLINTON. Washington. Word has com to the war department from West Point that notwithstanding the fact that it holds the largest class of new cadets which has reported to the institution, the members have not been hazed, either in camp or in the barracks. For some months there have been no develop ed cases of hazing of the newcomers. Recently Brig. Gen. Albert L. Mills was ordered to take command of tho department of the gulf, with headquar ters at Fort McPherson. Atlanta, Ga. It is probable that the news that there has been no hazing at West Point in of particular Interest to General Mills. When tho Spanish war broke out Mills was a first lieutenaut in tho First cavalry. He was given the rank of captain as an assistant adjutant general of volunteers. While on this staff duty he was in tho thick of the fight In front of Santiago. Ho showed heroism that day that won him a med al of honor, an appointment to West Point as superintendent, with the rank of colonel, and later a promotion to the grade of brigadier general, a promo tion that advanced him over the heads of several bundled senlcr officers. Brig. Gen. Albert L. Mills is the man who broke up hazing at West Point. The system passed bewailed by every graduate of the academy, except the man who gave It Its death blow. Pos sibly way down in his heart General MI113 was sorry that he was able to do w.iat many a soldier before him had failed to do, but It was a matter of duty, and hazing was drum-headed and driven out of the camp. The scars of war are on .eneral MI113. but conspicuous as was hl3 field service, it is probable that tho fight against the time-recognized, if not time-honored "plebe deviling" institu Hon, will outlive the other service In the memory of the army and the coun try. "Bracing" has succeeded hazing at West Point. A plebe is no longer asked to recite the "Psalm of Life,' with appropriate gestures, to bis hu miliation. and to tho delight or a host of unconscionable yearlings, but he gets the military end of the stren uous life as no plebe ever got it be fore, and the perfunctory soldier du ties at the academy were always soul trying and body-racking. Others Failed to Stop Hazing. When Albert L. Mills went to the Military Academy as Jts superintend ent he was only a captain, though the position of chief of the school car r!ed with it the temporary rank of colo nel. The list of his predecessors at West Point carried the name of some of the most distinguished soldiers of the American army. Lee, Schofiel Howard and Merritt are four of the names that come to the memory. Leo could not, or did not, stop hazing. Un der Schofteld six cadets were dismissed for hazing in a 6lngle summer, but haz ing went on. Merritt tried his hand at rooting out the practice. He dismissed a Chicago boy summarily on the chargo of deviling a plebe sentinel, but hazing went on. General Howard was probably the only superintendent that the military academy ever had who did not believe In his heart that a certain kind of hazing was a good thing for the hazed. Rich men's sons came to West Point, the most democratic school on the footstool, and gave evidence that they thought they wero better than the sons of poor men. It didn't take long to Induce them to change their view point. The yearlings charged It for them. There never was the brutal haz ing at West point that there was at Annapolis. The sea Echool brand was Indefensible. Howard tried to kill all forms of hazing and failed. Before General Mills had been in the academy long there were several case3 f severe hazing, and, mindful of his duty, he campaigned against an enemy that had overcome his predecessors as no enemy had overcome them in war fare. Mills routed tho well-intentioned foe, but he took care that a system of discipline should be Installed which would do tho regenerating work that the better kind of hazing had done be fore. Great Diplomatic Reception. This Is the season of the society whirl. It makes no difference wheth er one is Invited or not Invited. e cannot keep away from the receptions and tho balls and the par ies; that is, keep away from them In tho sense that bo must not know about them, for the streets are throng- d nightly with uniformed comers and goers and their begowned wIveB. aughters and sweethearts. Presl- dent'Taft has Just given the greatest iplomatic reception ever seen in Washington. The crowd of attend ants was tremendous and It was a gloriously bedecked and bedizened gathering. It was foreign night with an American environment. The guests were about equally divided be tween aliens and native born. The diplomats are a picturesque lot and la the main their wives and their sisters and their daughters are beau tiful, something which cannot be said for all of tho diplomatic husbands, brothers and fathers, if one looks above tho always beautiful uniforms. J About nine-tenths of the diplomats is Washington are aristocrats, or think that they are, and this amounts tc the same thing, and a large part oi them are titled, and those that haven't anything in front of their names have a string of rear titles to make up. ine diplomatic reception was at tended by more people than have been at the White House on any occasion for years, except of course on the oc casion of the New Year's day recep tion when the latch string bangs out to the world. Military Attaches a Fine Lot. Most of the military attaches of tho European governments do cot need ramifications 'of uniform and equip ment to make them physically present able. In fact, if some of the English men, Russians and Germans would take off some twenty or thirty pound of decorations, Btrlp off eighteen or twenty yards of fur lining and take a reef or two in their sashes those of them who wear sashes they would appear to a more militant advantage Fully the half of them are magnlfl cent specimens of manhood. It must be that somo of the countries picli their men because cf their physical fitness. There was a throng of Japanese of ficials in the White House on tho night of the diplomatic recention They are small men, but they are of perfect carriage, and, as an American officer said recently, "they .always havo a 'ready' look." There is no les son In geniality which tho Japaenso havo not learned. At any rate, this statement is true of the Japaneso of ficials. They are favorites In Wash ington life. It is said of them that It Is impossible not to like them, even though prejudice and determination try to have their owa way in the mat ter. Won't Shove! Away Snow. The Capital has had more than its share of Enow in the last week or two. The streets are In a fearful condition and no one at tempts to clean as much a. a path along tho sidewalk abutting on his property. The snow comes and lies and there It stays until the sun melts it. The government insists that property holders keep their sidewalks and their pavements free from dirt, and the city ordinarily J3 beautifully clean, but us for snow and ice. with their attendant slipping dangers, con gress does not seem to care a whit. Washington Is governed by con gress. Congress Is its mayor and its city council. In somo ways Wash ington is well governed; in other ways it isn't. Every winter there is a long-drawn-out row in the senate, and some times in the house, over the matter of a law to force the people to remove tho snow from the sidewalks In front of their residences. The law has never passed. Once It was upon tho dis trict statute books, but It was wiped out never apparently to be restored. The result Is that after a snowstorm In Washington sidewalks are In a fear ful etate. Only the most public-spirited citizens clean their sidewalks. The rest of the people wnde through their own snow and theft neighbors' snow and prefer the discomfort of it all to the two minutes' exertion which it would take to shovel the snow from their walks. Visitors to the state, war and r.avy department building miss the models of the big shipj which onco stood In the hallways. There are one or two models still In existence, but they are of the smaller gunboats and they lack the interest which attaches to the big turreted vessels with their guns which, even in model form, are frown ing and savage looking enough. No inquiry personally has been made ns to why tho models of the ships have been sent Into tho closet. It may bo that the authorities did not care to have them inspected at close range by representatives of foreign governments. Army Uniform Exhibit. In tho hallway of the army part of the state, war and navy building there arc wax figures of men clothed one after tho 'other in the uniforms of the service since revolutionary days These wax figures are pretty well done, inasmuch as they are not ghastly iooking, nor "shuddery," as are some of the wax figures that one sees la store windows. By far the most picturesque of the uniforms are those which were worn in the revolutionary days. Of course, the uniforms shown In the war depart ment are spick and span and made for the show occasions. It is not at all likely that many of the soldiers of the revolution had such fine duds to wear as these to be seen in Mr. Stlmson's department. The buff and the blue are beautiful, much more beautiful than some of tho unlforo-s which fol low. The riflemen of the revolution wore deerskin on their bodies and coon skins on their heads. Thefe uniforms are shown with the otheru. and they add to the plcturcsquenesi of the dis play It must be said, however, that the present field uniform of the Unit- ed States troops is by far the most comfortable and serviceable of all that have teen used since the American army camo Into existence Growing Young. Age has its beauty as well as youth. and we should all study the art or growing old gracefully, that we may bo loved to the last by those who lovo us. On the stage of life we have our part to play it would seem that religion has taugM us better things than Socialism and helped us to bear and forbear There is a great bitter ness in the discovery that the treas ures worshipped in our youth are at best but clay-footed idols; yet, it we cultivate a, gentle philosophy we raav be able to 'cset that tho years, they go. are stealing many of pui best lllusLo- Exchange. TAFT FREES MORSE ACTION IS DUE TO THE SERIOUS CONDITION OF NEW YORK'S EX-BANKER. HAD MANY SINKING SPELLS Physicians at Fort McPherson, Ga., Say He Is In No Immediate Dan ger of Death Family Happy Over Outcome. Washington, Jan. 3!).--President Taft has given Charles W. Morse hla freedom. The presldent'3 action was due to the serious physical condition ot the former banker. This action was taken after the president had examined the report of Surgeon General Torney of tho army n Morse's condition. The conclusion reached was that Morse's condition was desperate. J. A. Finch,, pardon attorney or the department of justice, also held a long conference with tho president. Has Had Several Sinking Spells Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 1!). While varying reports concerning the condition ot Charle3 W. Morso has emanated trora official reports to Washington and from his friends and legal advisers, he is practically the same as when trans lerred from the federal prison to the army hospital at Fort McPherson six weeks ago. He has had several sink ing spells which necessitated the use cf stimulants, but according to civilian physicians he has been In no immedi ate danger of death, ills removal to I let Springs, Ark., ordered last wee'.t. was postponed on account ot his phy sical weakness. Son Happy Over Outcome. Baltimore. Md., 'Jan. 1U. "That's the host news I ever heard," said Harry F. Morse over the telephone here, when he was told his fattier. Charles W. Morse, the convicted ice king, was to be released from the fed eral prison at Atlanta by President Taft. Three of the Morse children, Benjamin W., Harry F. and Miss Anna, live on Elsinore avenue in W'al brock. They have been here several months, the eldest son being secretary of the Knickerbocker Ice company in South Baltimore. Tho announcement of the release of Morse wa3 a complete surprise to his children, and all through the evening there was rejoicing at the home. Es pecially was It the greater surprise coming so soon alter the announce ment a week or two ago that no par don would be granted the banker at this time. Miss Anna Morse, who is the young est of the Morse four children, one brother living in California, returned from Atlanta Wednesday. She said that her father was a physical wreck and that his one wish was to spend his remaining days with his family. She said that her mother was witb her father until a few days ago. but had probably returned to New York by this tlmo. Mrs. Morse's Strong Campaign. For almost two years Mrs. Morso has been engaged In an aggressive campaign toward the securing or a pardon for her husband, i She even went so far as xo sell her valuable personal belongings in order o defray the expenses of her cam- j paign. Thousands of petitions were circulated. They were first distrlbut-1 ed in Baltimore, where numerous signatures were secured, and then in other cities throughout the country. Just what the Morse family will do witn Mr. Morse has not been deter mined. The probability Is that a con lerence will be held by them In this city within a few days, or all may go immediately to Atlanta.

The first formal duel among English speaking peoples was In 109G. France seems to have been the land in which the "code" had its most flourishing" times. From France the practice passed over to England, and, from England it came over to America. In the early days of our country duels were quite common, but since Burr kllled Hamilton the practice has been steadily on the decline. It is today a very rare thing for a duel to talte place In any civilized land, and in the United State3 the foolish custom is practlcally extinct. "The Intellectuals." "In our democracy, whero every thing else is so shifting, we alumni and alumnae of the colleges are the only permanent presence that corre sponds to the aristocracy in other countries. We have continuous tradi tions as they have; our motto, too, is noblesse oblige; and. unlike them, we stand for ideal interests solely, for we have no corporate selfishness arid wield no powers of corruption. We ought to have our own class-consciousness. Lea Intellectuels! What proud er club name could there be than this one!" William James in "Memo lies and Studies." Simple Question. "What is the difference," asks the man with the dispirited whiskers and the keen eye, "between a girl "with a clothespin on her nose, and one whose little brother is quarantined because of a disease incident' to childhood, which is characterized by an eruption of the skin?" "To avoid argument," sighs the man with tho rectangular Adam's apple, "what is the differ ence?" "One'3 brother is measled, the other'8 breather is muzzled." And afar down tho glen arose the mournful cry of a loon lamenting its lost love. Chi cago Post. Modernized. "That ctory of the building of tho Tower of Rabel should be modern ized." "But how would you account for the confusion of tongues?" "Why, I supese they had the tower pretty nearly up and then somebody yelled 'Graft!' and everybody accused every body tlse and the job was held up!" One of the Mysteries. "The railroad business is pretty complicated." "Yes," replied the trav eling ii;an. "I don't suppose I ever will bi able to understand why two towns ihtit look so close together on a railway map get so far apart when they come to measure up the distance with a mileage book." Shutting Out Sound. "Why do so many of you classio musicians wear such very long hair?" asked the inquisitive girl. "So tfiat we can comb it down over cur ears in case anybody play3 ragtime." DISFIGURED WITH CRUSTS "Some tlmo ago I was taken vita eczema from the top of my head to my waist. It began with scales on my body. I suffered untold itching and burning, and could not sleep. I wa9 greatly disfigured with scales and crusts. My ears looked as if they had been most cut off with a razor, and my neck was perfectly raw. I suffered untold agony and pain. I tried , doctors who said I had eczema in Its fullest stage, and that It could not be cured. I then tried other rem edies to no avail. At last, I tried a set of the genuine Cuticura Remedfes. which cured me of eczema when all elso had failed, therefore I cannot praise them too highly. "I suffered with eczema about ten months, but am now entirely cured and I believe Cuticura Remedies are the best skin cure there i3." (Signed) Miss Mattie J. Shaffer. R. F. D. 1, Box 8, Dancy, Miss., Oct. 27, 1910. "I had suffered from eczema about four years when bolls began to break out on different parts of m7 body. It started with a fino red rash. My back was affected first, when it also spread over my face. The itching was almost unbearable at times. I tried different soaps and salves, but nothing seemed to help mo until I began to use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment. One box of thcra cured me entirely. I recommended them to my sister for her baby who was troubled with tootn eczema, and they completely cured her baby." (Signed) Mrs. F. L. Marber ger, Drehcrsvllle, Ta., Sept. C, 1910.
