School Teacher Loses Temper
and Spanks a Big
Wilkesbarre, Pa., March 88.—When
Prof. Clayton Kellar, principal of the
l.aceyville high school, sat down in a
pond of water which had been poured
into his chair, was he justified in using
a ruler on Miss Ruth Russell, a til year
old pupil, when be found that she had
constructed the lake? This is the
ineetion that has split Laceyvllle wide
All agree that the professor had good
excuse for losing his temper,'but most
of the folk think he acted a little hap
tily in punishing Miss Russell. Tney
believe that if be had waited a wjiile
his lietter judgment would have assert
ed itself. At any rate, the April
grand jury will have to wrestle with
the question. Prof. Kellar was ar
rested, chaiged with assault and bat
tery by Judson Russell, the girl's
The incident is greatly regretted be
cause Laceyville is supposed to be a
dry" town. According to the pupil
in Miss Russell's class it happened a
few days ago. Prof. Kellar's chair or
iginally was nice and plump, but bis
generous proportions have depressed it
until they l«nt themselves admirably
to the lock canal scheme. He stepped
out of tne room for a few minutes,
and in bis absence some one filled
the leather ditch with watei. No
one will tell who did it. Prof. Kel
ler says.be noticed a suppressed titter
when he returned, but paid no atteu
tion to it as titters are not uncommon
in that pait of the country. He
poised himself for a second and then
legan his descent. He hit the water
with a splash. Naturally there wasn't
room for both on that chair. One had
to move, and it was the water. It
moved up around bim on all sides and
came down like a cascade. The titter
was now a roar.
The water most not have been fine,
because he didn't stay in long. He
rose to the surface and discreetly
backed out of the room by a side door,
leaving a damp trail behind him.
Several of his favorite boys rushed to
his aid with stacks of blotters. After
he had been made comfortable be came
back, in his right hand he clutched a
ruler. Without any hesitation ne
made direct for where Miss Ruth was
laughing until her teeth rattled.
Eye witnesses say what followed
was fearful. He didn't ask ber to
bold out her hand, as teacher gener
ally do. He helped himself. Ruth's
father corroborates this. He says his
daughter is black and blue and yellow
in several spots. Ruth feels the bumil
iation more than anything else. Prof.

When Asked if the Measure, Taken

Increased as They Ought to Ba.
Washington, March 24.—When the
house met there wap a slim attend
ance of members, which led Mr. Ma
con (Ark.) to suggest the absence ol
a quorum. As Mr. Payne was to con
tlnue his explanation of the tariff bill
the Arkansas member said he should
be given a full hearing. The point
was not pressed, however, and Mr.
Payne took the floor.
No sooner had Mr. Payne begun
than he .was plied with questions from
all sides. Again he was asked, thi*
time by Mr. Moore (Pa.), if there
would be an opportunity to offer
amendments to the bill in the bouse,
"or," Mr. Moore added, "must we look
elsewhere?" meaning the senate.
"That," replied Mr. Payne, "Is en
tirely in the Judgment of the house
and in its control." All he was seek
ing to do, he said, was to finish his
speech and to him it seemed an lni
In his replies to questions Mr.
Payne was decidedly'more aggressive.
He became highly indignant when Mr.
Garrett (Tenn.) Inquired if, taking the
bill as a whole, It was not "revision
"The gentleman has no right to sav
that," the Republican leader sharply
announced. "It 1b not fair to say that
as an honorable man." With a good
deal of emphasis be declared that,
taken as a whole, the revision was
downward, but as to luxuries it wa^.
he said, revisiou upward and ought to
be. He said that any Intelligent man
could understand by reading the bill
its general trend and he charged thaf
tho idea of interpellating such a re
mark as that made by Mr. Garrett
was "not fair to me, to the committee
nor to the country."
Sharp Colloquy on Hides.
instant later Mr. Payne had a
sharp colloquy with Mr. Garner
(Tex.), who aaked for an explanation
regarding free hides.
"I will get to hides," said Mr. Payne,
hotly. "I know it is a local issue with
"the gentleman," said he, and he add
ed, with an unconscious pun, "I know
he will try to hide himself behind a
revenue duty in order to meet the de
mands of those Democrats In his dis
trtct who are clamoring for a duty on
"The Democrats la my district,'
quickly retorted Mr. Qarner, "are also
clamoring for free leather, free har
ness and free shoes."
Continuing his explanation and an
swering many questions Mr. Payne
said that the cut In the metal sched
ule would not destroy the tin plate
industry in the United States.
Mr. Payne made a general attack on
the so called hide trust and said the
"big four" packers controlled the hide
industry in the United States. Mr.
Garner asked the ways and means
chairman if he thought the removal
of the duty on hide3 was rendering
the farmers a real benefit.
"I do,'* replied Mr. Payne with am
While Mr. Payne was discussing
this schedule the members crowded
the aisles and well in front of the
rostrum. Frequently several que*
tlons would be put by them at one
time and there was constant demand
on his attention. His good humor ap
parently had returned and he replied
to each one in turn.
