Many of Them to Be Found in All Parta of the Oountry. COLONY AT THE NATIONAL CAPITAL Tlirc-o Hundred Hear < honinp In Tlilrly CltlcK ) Prolmlily n Tliou- In the l/'nltril Stntc * AVIni They Arc. As It IB well known that the first president died childless , it may be a surprise to many to learn of the great number of living men throughout the country named Gcorgo Wash ington. Had there been a George Junior the name might have been perpetuated In direct lines of the family until Innumerable ; but as it is , today the great general's name has been adopted broadcast. A young man who recently met In the capital a Mr. George Washington Deemed to think that naturally he must have been In nome way or other a relative of the great general. "You will find that It Is a common honor to have that name down here , " ho said , "and a number of them you will find are colored. You see , In slavery days , they usually were designated by the name of the family or plantation to which they belonged , and thus many colored Gcorgo Waohlngtons are also found scattered throughout the country. " Becoming Interested , the young man looked up eorno of tbo Wnshlngtons of the great cities. The capital Bcemcd to bo the homo of Gcorgo Washlhgtons , as there are no less than forty-one living there today. Curiously , not ono of these Is recorded as being colored , although this cannot be alto gether correct , especially as the number includes twcnty-ono laborers. Four are drivers , there Is a painter , a barber * a Jan itor , flvo waiters , a coachman , a bricklayer , a porter , n confectioner nnd ono clerk- not even a professional man , much less a "president ! " 'JSi fH Baltimore carao next in the list of cities , there being thirty-two named after the father of his country ; then ho found twenty- six in New Orleans , sixteen in St. Louis , fifteen in Richmond , sixteen In Philadelphia , fifteen In Savannah , thirteen In Charleston , S. C. , ten In Louisville , ten In Kansas City , nlno In Chicago and In Plttaburg. But Btrango to say , Now York City records but four. And within on hour's Investigation fully 300 George Washlngtons were recorded In some thirty odd cities. This number would probably be doubled If all the cities of the country had been included , and with the addition of those living outside of city limits , It Is safe to say that wo have nearly 1,000 Gcorgo Washington * in the United States today. The occupations of those recorded shows that with few exceptions they are among the working classes , There were drivers , Janltoro , barbers , conductors , cooks , lum bermen , carpenters , blacksmiths , Icemen , shoemakers , parlors , laundrytncn. restaura teurs , coachmen , rlvermcn , brickmakers , n clothes-cleaner , a leather decorator , a millwright , ft lampmaker , a clockmoker , a bookkeeper and one real estate dealer. Scarcely any of those recorded bad a middle initial. Ingtons keeps n barber ship. Ho Is getting Ono of New York's colored Gcorgo Wash- old , has lost hla 'sight , but lie contains his customers whllo his men do the work. When asked about his name , ho said : "I know a good many George Washlngtons , nnd some of them tell queer stories about tracing their family name , but I tell the straight story about mine. My great-grand father was in Washington's army. He adopted the name , 'and there have been throe Gecrgo Washlngtons In our family Blnce. Yes , there are a good many moro men of that name than nro recorded In the cities. Why , I know of half a dozen right around hero ; ono of them died recently. " H occurred to the Investigator that there were probably a like number of Abraham Ltncolns springing up throughout the coun try , and especially among the colored people , but this wasr not the case , there being none In most of the cities , and not more than two or three In any one. TUAUI : ix Miniums. Extent ot the IJimlnt'Hw In < he LiiH 'il StlltCH. The sales of looking glosses In the United States amount to about $8,000,000 a year , nnd the Industry gives employment to more than 2,000 persons ( very few women or girls among them ) , about one-half of whom are In the state of New York. Mirror mak ing Is a simple process , relates the New York Sun , but though simple Is not with out its elements of danger. The present method is as follows : A smooth stone table is arranged ro be easily canted a little on ono side by means of a screw set beneath. Around the edges of the table Is a groove , In which mercury may flow and drop from ono corner into bowls. The table Is first raado perfectly horizontal and then tinfoil is carefully laid over It , covering a greater space than the glass to be coated. A strip of glass Is placed along each ot three sides of tbo foil to prevent the mercury from flow ing off. The metal IB then poured from ladles upon the foil till it Is nearly a quarter of nn inch deep. The plate of glass is slid on from the open side , and its advancing edge Is kept In the mercury , so that no air or floating oxide of metal or other im purities can get between the glass nnd the clean surface of the mercury. When exactly in place Ills held until one edge of the table has beer elevated ten or twelve degrees and the superfluous mercury ihas run off. It Is left for several hours and then placed upon a frame , the side covered with the amalgam , which adheres ( Q. It. After the amalgam becomes hard the plate Is ready for use. The dangers arising from mirror making come chiefly from the use of the quicksilver , and there Is a general belief that this occupa tion Is especially injurious to health In con sequence of tbo danger of poisoning from fumes , but it Is not sustained by the fig ures collected by the Insurance companies. Now York had at the time of the last fed- ural census twenty-six mirror making fac tories , Illinois , had seven , Pennsylvania flvo nnd Massachusetts two. Louisiana hml _ at that time the only factory of the kind In the south , California the only ouo on the Pacific. Quicksilver being extensively used in mirror making , the facilities which Cal ifornia bos for Its supply would seem to give that state a decided advantage in this par ticular line of trade. About one-quarter of ttu < quicksilver produced in the world comes from California. It is a theory which has been generally accepted , but the error of which Is obvious to every intelligent and dispassionate ob server , that men are regardless of mirrors nnd that women are their chief users. The fact Is that a very considerable number of mirrors nro bought for and are uuod by men , and to that fact is duo the extent of the business , probably , for It would be dlfll- cult to believe that 0,000,000 girls and women require JS.000,000 worth of mirrors every year , mirrors being seldom lost and never broken intentlonaUy. The excellence of American mirrors is generally acknowl edged. Innovation lit Ki Says the Philadelphia Record. "An inno vation in funerals took place last Tuesday in Clifton Heights at the burial ot A soldier , vsheti tbo body and its followers were car ried to the cemetery on trolley cars. The deceased was Kobert C. Russell of Company II. Sixth regiment , who was a resident of Clifton and died in the hospital at Lancas ter. The Interment took place at Blues Church , on tbo Baltimore Pike , and being on * direct line ot the trolley they decided o do away with carriages and use cars Instead. As ho was burled with military honors the ear on which the body was placed was Artistically draped with flagi , accom panied with the emblems of mourning.

In talking with the writer , Mrs. Gray said that after losing her husband and her home seven years ago , she followed Dr. Harper to the University of Chicago , having previ ously studied Hebrew with him at Chautau- qua and by correspondence. "I gathered up the broken threads of work which were left from my girlhood , " she said , "and took my degree of A. B. They said it was well done ! Then I returned to the old lines of work , took up my loved Hebrew , Joined to It some new testament work and some church history , then added systematic theology and homllctlcs In pa- ronthcMs I may say that I was called a flne preacher and all necessary work , took my final examination and was told that I passed an excellent examination.

Passing westward on the Northern Pacific railway ono crosses vast plains , gradually rising to the plateau which extends along the eastern foot of the Hooky mountains. At first the train crosses the fertile farming lands of Minnesota and the wonderfully level wheat lands of the lied Hlver of the North. Hut during the night the train passes from the humid plains of eastern North Dakota to the arid plateau lands of western North Dakota , so that , by morning , the traveler looks out upon a monotonous rolling plain , brown , desolate and uninteresting. Very soon , however , the surface begins to have variety of form ; for the "bad lands" are reached , and this Is a region where there Is a constantly changing panorama of sculp tured hill slopes. The forms are weird , and often fantastic. Ono passes them by In such quick succession that a glimpse only Is possi ble , for the eye has not time to appreciate the details , so that the mind receives a gen- PORTRAIT MRS.

The subject of her thesis was "Michael Angelo and Ills Place In the Re formatory Movement. " Although studying In the Baptist Divinity school , Mrs. Gray is a loyal Methodist. She la also a Woman's Christian Temperance union worker. In pursuing her studies her work has been almost entirely among men , from whom , she says , she has received only the kindest treatment , whllo the members of the faculty have given .her full sympathy and encourage ment.

He Mntle Tlilnux Hum When He Sold I'miiTM nt Snntlauo. The Santiago Times , which prides Itself on being "tho only American dally printed In Santiago , " soys under date of August 27 : This morning a Yankee boy turned up. The war calling his attention to Cuba , he em barked on the steamship Saratoga between a bale of hay and a lifeboat as a stowaway. Arriving on terra firma this morning , he ap plied to us for a situation. Ho was willing to begin at the bottom of the ladder , jelling papers. Wo gave him a bundle of papers and he rushed off , not even waiting to Inquire how much pay bo was to get. A moment later wo heard the old familiar yell In the street of "Wuxtra the only American paper published In Cuba ! Hero you go , uxtral" In the usually quiet streets of Cuba It made a frightful din and as the Yankee newsboy hurried down Marina street , yelling at the top of his voice , with the bundle under his arm and a paper In tls hand like an Improvised Hag , the poor startled Cubans , unused to such a specta cle , stumbled to get out of the way , while the merchants Hocked to their doors to see what was the matter. In less than two hours our boy was back to the ofilco again , having sold in that time moro papers than six of our native boys would have done In the same time. We have a lurking suspicion that the Cubans bought the paper because they were afraid they would get killed If they did not buy It ; the merchants bought it because they thought it contained something new and our soldiers bought It because it was Amer ican. So far as we have heard only ona casualty occurred , caused by our Yankee newsboy , and that was when ho shouted "Uxtral" Into the car of a dozing police man. Tbo policeman was BO frightened that he fell off the sidewalk , nearly break ing bis machete. We have great hopes for our new acqui sition and wo prophesy for him a great and glorious future in the Uland of Cuba , and when the Times has grown to be a power In journalism may our Yankee newsboy , Ellas Whitman of New York be one of its owners. " " " " " ' " ' " " " " am r i ! ! n "i" . .jrvUrfLL ST , ' > " J 4kL eral impression of a panorama of marked Interest and variety. Very few people take the time to become better acquainted with this region , though many pass through It to spend time in seeing vastly less interesting places beyond. A stop of a few days at Medora , with a ride or two out among the hills , will repay any ono In terested In nature. N'ot only is the variety of land form remarkable , but the geological history of this sculpturing is also Interest ing , it is of this that Ualph S. Tarr , pro fessor of physical geography In Cornell , writes In the Independent as follows : Toward the close of the Cretacean period , when the Rocky mountains , as they now exist , were being raised in a series of vast earth-folds , the worplngs of the surface formed a series of depressions In the region now occupied by the mountains and pla teaus. Into these basins , which were in sorno cases estuaries and bays , arms of the sea , and In others lakes , streams , laden with sediment , poured their floods. Here in the quiet lake or ocean waters the rock bits were assorted and deposited , forming layers of clay , sand and gravel , which eventually accumulated to considerable depths. It Is these beds , now drained and elevated , that have permitted the development of the Dad Land sculpturing ; and the fossils that they contain tell of their origin. Some beds are marine , some brackish nnd some fresh water. Around the shores of these waters there existed plant life , often In great abun dance , frequently In the form of swamps. Anvil-lit I'liuit I.lfc. The evidence of the prcsenco of this an cient plant llfo la complete. Every hero and there ono finds impressions of loaves , or the seeds of plants , or bits of wood embedded in the sand and clay strata ; nnd frequently , too , tree trunks and tree stumps , with their branching roots , nro found transformed to stone. Petrified forests nro not uncommon In the west and here , in the Bad Lands , Is an excellent place to see them. The tree trunks and stumps have been burled be neath layers of sedimentary rocks ; water percolating through these layers has dls- solved silica , carried it on , and slowly de posited It in the place of the decaying wood. Molecule by molecule has the wood been re placed , and the replacement has been so well done that the wood texture , the knots , and even minute variations In grain have been preserved , though the -wood Itself has gone. Even more Impressive evidence of swamp growth on the shores of these ancient water bodies Is found In the layers of coal. Ex posed in the ravines which traverse the Had Lands are Innumerable coal seams , so that every ranchman In the region can have his own coal mine. Some of the coal seams are mere laminae of carbonaceous matter Intercalated between layers of clay ; others are beds of pure coal , of good quality , and several feet in thickness. They are pre served peat beds and swamp deposits , formed on the shores of water bodies now destroyed. The coal of this age Is found all over the Kocky mountain region , and forms a vast and almost Inexhaustible reserve - servo supply , at present only very slightly developed. When deposited the layer * of rock un doubtedly stretched from hill to hill across the space now occupied by the ravines ; and no doubt the layers now exposed to view weru then deeply burled beneath other beds now stripped off by the very processes which are even now plainly ut work lowering the bills and broadening and deepening the val- leyi. The subsequent history of the Bad Lands Is mainly one of sculpturing by the erosive action of wind and running water. The carving of the surface , which has produced the marvelous variety of form characteristic of Bad Land topography , has been done primarily by the Little Missouri river and its tributaries. The Little Mis souri has cut a valley Into the partly con solidated strata of the region , and the tribu taries to the river have likewise sunk their channels Into the strata. Because of the aridity of the climate , the hill slopes thus formed are only scantily clothed with vegetation. Rain is not fre quent , but when it docs come the fall Is often very heavy. Because there Is no forester or sod to hold it back , the water runs quickly down the steep slopes , nnd with Its rapid flow Is able to cut channclwnys in the partly consolidated strata. So the hillsides In this region are gullied and sculptured by the action of rain-born rills. IVIrril Form * . This rain-sculptured surface Is ono of the features of the Bad Land topography , nnd Is one of the causes for the welrdncfts and variety of form. On a very small scale ono may often see much the same result where the rain has carved the soft clays In a steep railway cut. But In the Bad Lands there are thousands of steep slopes and on everyone ono of them the rain has been engaged In gullying the surface. Ono may eee the work thai is being done during any heavy rain , when thousands of tiny rills course rapidly down the hillsides and bear to the Llttlo Missouri a volume of sediment-laden water , representing the work of excavation which they have been able to do on the hillside. It Is a work still In progress. The variety of form In the Bad Lands Is Infinite as to detail , yet In general features one Is able to see a certain system and relation of cause and effect. First , and of prime Importance , are the river trenches , with the steeply sloping wall of soft layers , themselves gullied Into great variety of form by the rain-born rills. Thin variety of form Is Influenced in. an important way by the stratification of the layers , which Introduce a second Important determining cause for the form. The strata are horizontal , nnd when in the region one very soon notices that some of the horizontal layers are very soft and quite unconsolldated , whllo others are hard and consolidated. Naturally , therefore , the dif ference ! in hardness of the horizontal beds introduces a horizontal element of control of land form. For Instance , where the lay ers nro hard there are steeD slopes In the hillsides , and thcso precipitous sections maybe bo traced horizontally around the hills and from hill to hill. Aotloii of the A second influence of the horizontal varia tion In hardness Is very frequently seen when a harder layer caps and protects a hill. This protection furnished by the harder layers in horizontally bedded strata Is ono of the most Important factors In determining western plateau scenery. Streams cut valleys in the plateau , slicing through hard and soft layers and leaving hills between , composed of thcso horizontal beds of different texture. Thcso Inter- stream areas wear away slowly , and when one of the hard layers Is reached it wears Btill moro slowly. 'Since ' it extends horizontally , the effect of the retardation Is to cause steep-skied hills with flat tops , called by the 'Spaniards ' mesas ( or tables ) it largo and buttes if small. Many of these llat-toti > ea mesas and buttes near together reach the same level because determined by the same horizontal bed. Gradually even the hard can-rock gives way under the attack of wind and rain , and the Hat-topped butte changes in a cone , and finally either melts away , or , if there is another hard layer lower down In the hill , when this Is reached it also resists the action of the weather , and the hill again becomes a butte with the flat top at the level of the lower and newly exposed hard stratum. in the Bad Lands of North Dakota ono sees every stage In the llfo history of buttes. There are plateaus , only hero and there crossed by streams , and there are plateaus whoso edges furnish numerous Instances of hills nearly severed from the plateau by the cutting action of streams. There are also typical Hat-topped buttes perfectly separated from the worn plateau ; and nearby there are conical buttes In which the hard layer Is nearly gone , perhaps with loose fragments of the hard rock resting on the hillside , as the only remnant of the cap-rock. Lower down In the hill may , perhaps , be seen other hard layers which In time will cap the same hill at a lower level. Indeed , near by , this same lower layer may be seen furnishing a flat cap for buttes which have already melted down to this level. Ono who takes a drive- into thcso Bad Lands will have his attention called to the "scoria" rocks which abound there. These scoria layers are very striking , because on account of their hardness they are often found capping and causing buttes. The scoria layers are highly colored , often some shade of red ; and they odd markedly to tno beautiful variety in color effect that one notices in the Bod" Lands. Besides being highly colored and very hard , the rock is often clinkery , full of holes , and quite llko many lavas in appearance , though sometimes the appearance Is rather that of slag. The traveler may have some remarkable theory for the origin of the scoria thrust upon him , and It will require more than a passing glance to prove to one's gratification that it is not really a lava or an artificial slag. In the true sense of the word the rock is neither lava nor slag. Ono can prove for himself what it is by visiting one of the burning coal mines where scoria are even now being formed. In these place ono may see a flrc , S2t , perhaps , by Indians , or by a pralrlo fire started by lightning , or possibly , set aflro by spontaneous combustion. For years , since long before white men visited this region , these fires have been burning summer raid winter , until now most of the lignite has been burned out of the dry hills which have been stripped and exposed to the air by the action of the rains. Iiiternul Flrt'M , In such a place ono sees a hill , cracked and fissured , with Jets ot sulphurous umoko issuing from the crevices , telling of the fierce IIro that Is raging within. It Is not perfectly safe to walk about on this cracked surface , but by exercising care ono may approach preach near enough to some of the cracks to look into the fiery furnace and see the white- hot glow of the coal and the Inclosing rocks , heated to a white heat llko that of a blast furnace. Here the rocks are being baked , Indurated , and in places actually melted and caused to flow llko lava. Here are being produced a natural slag and clinkers In ono of nature's great furnaces ; and the local name of scoria Is therefore an excellent one. Fire , as well as water , has been Important In determining tbo form of the Bail Land hills , and there are few other places In the world where one Is able to see an Illustration of this exact combination of causes for topography. Tbo Bad Lands of North Dakota are not altogether barren sculptured hill slopes. There are broad , grassy valleys and level upland plateaus. Moreover , the region is well watered by the Llttlo Missouri. It Is natural , therefore , that ranchmen have chosen this interesting region for a bomb where , in the midst of the plains , their stock is protected from the fierce winds of the plains and where , amidst the protection of the hills , they are able to tlnd both watci and food. The Roosevelt ranch is not for from Me- dora , and tha Eaton ranch Is still nearer. It ono has the good fortune to visit the Bad Lands as tbo guebt of the Eaton brothers ho not only sees the wonders and beauties of the Bad Lands , but he receives an Impression of ranch llfo and a ranshman's hospitality which will never leave him , Ono then feels that the term Bad Lands Is n misnomer for all excepting the sculptured hill slopes. WINTER WORK AT LIBRARY Students Begin to Look Up the Books They Are Interested In , SCHOOL CHILDREN'S ' SPECIAL PRIVILEGES All HIP IlrMiurrm of Ihc ( irrnt 1'nlillo lillirnry nt I C'liniinnnit of the I'upll In .Search < if Information. A now winter's season of reading and study is beginning to bring down dusty volumes from circulation shelves and refer ence cases at the Omaha Public library. Club women , technical people mid school children are getting back to the routine of a workday world nnd are taking up their winter's work In the systematic way that means work for the library attendants. The most noticeable Influx is that of school children and especially High school stu dents whoso work Is coming moro nnd moro to bo batted on library references. High school teachers are allowed flvo "special privilege" cards , upon which books are Is sued for use in their particular subject. Pupils in their charge also are privileged to leave their cards nt the library together with any special topic which it Is desired shall bo looked up and nil the material In the library available In that line is put at their service. H la expected that substations will be established at various points by November 1 , which will be of great assistance to school children and others In getting volumes bank and forth. Probably four stations of this description will bo located In suburban districts , and patrons will be able to have orders filled and books returned through their agency. No books will bo kept on hand nt the stations , ns that would Involve their withdrawal from the general circulation shelves , but changes will be made as often as twice a week and a supply of finding lists will be kept on hand. The plan has been tried very successfully In a number of large cities. Another class of students whoso work Is based largely on library material are mem bers of the Technical club , which has begun Us meetings In the lecture room on the ( bird floor. It Is composed of about thirty mem bers made up of well known architects , engi neers and manufacturers , who meet to exchange - change ideas on topics of mutual interest. Several classes of the Woman's club , notably the Art department and the Current Topics department , are also laying out their year's work In the reference room. A class in Egyptology , under Mrs. W. II. Ilanchctt , has an anteroom set asldo for its use during Urn winter and the walls arc hung with a num ber of chotco engravings illustrating the subject. There are also a number of private reading and current topics clubs and debat ing societies which have made known their desire to user the facilities of the library. The library officials are busy getting the building Into shape for the reception of the Transmlsslbslppi Library congress , which will bo hold from September 29 to October 1 , Inclusive. The congress Is planned to crea'e a moro general Interest in library work among the people of the transmlsslsslppl state and It alms to present discussions by prominent library people from all parts of the country upon topics of general Interest touching the work of public libraries. Neat programs have been issued outlining the three days' program , which is quite fully oc cupied by papers and addresses. The social feature of the session will bo the reception on Thursday night at the Library building. The refreshment heaths will be In charge of well known young women and the public is expected to have a good time. The program will be varied by several welcoming ad dresses. As the attendance at the exposition grows larger , there Is a corresponding Increase In the visiting list at the library. Many of the strangers are ait the head of libraries In their own localities and the attendants take con siderable prldo In showing them about our own handsoma Institution. 1'olut of VI cur.
