at Pierre
Pierre. J«ly 16.— Apropos
statement given out to the press of
the northwest in a dispatch from
lJierre relative to the modification of
tbe original plans for beautifying the
capitol grounds at Pierre, Prof. H. E.
Hanson, head of the horticultural de
partment of the state college, who baa
been retained to work out the design,
said to the presa:
"I have never seen the original New
Yotk plans for the landscape garden
ing for the grounds around the state
capitol at Pierre, nor do I intend to
examine them. If I am to be the
landscape architect in the case it will
be after my own design and some
thing I hope in harmony with the
majestic beanty of the present capitol
building now nnaring completion at
It was not necessary to go to New
York for ideas or men to work them
out for such a project, for right here in
our own state we have a man who is
eminently fitted by education, travel
and knowledge of the circumstances to
work out any scheme which may be
desired much better than any import
ed talent, however able ne would be.
His observation of the grounds sur
rounding the palaces, puolic nuildings
and othei show places of Europe and
Asia, to say nothing of this country,
stand Prof. Hansen in good stead, and
if he is given the proper financial
and moral support he will beautify
tne grounds of tne capitol at Pierre
in a manner that will reflect credit on
the object accomplished, the horticnl
tural profession and himself and be a
matter of pride that will be niore][tban

Barren Marriage—Pittsburg Phy
sician's Desire for Son
Divorce Court
Pittsburg, Pa., July 18.—Fashion
able society circles of Pittsburg and
Se wick ley are iistonnded at the scan
dal involving two of the most prouu
nent families in Pittsburg, which
been disclosed through the beginning
of a divorce suit against Dr. Joseph
Z. Dickson, wealthy, prowineut clu!
man and skilful surgeon, by Mrs.Dick
son, former leader aud lelle in tin
younger set.
Jessie Ray, a pretty nnrse and
protege of Dr.Dickson, is named as o
respondent, it being alleged by Mr
Dickson that tbe husband maintained
two establishments, one for her and
another for the nurse.
And tbe only cause for all this
trouble, aacording to Dr. Dickson's
friends, is due to his desir«, almost
craze, for a child, which it is said, his
wife was unable to bear him. That
the doctor always loved,and still loves
his wife, is evidenced by nis devoted
treatment of her, the luxury he lav
ishee npen her and tbe consideration
be uses for her comforts.
That tbe physician made no appar
ent effort to conceal the facts from bis
wife is the opinion of his intiin»r
friends and associates. His naby 1» y
was a frequent visitor at th« office
his father in the Westinghouse Build
ing. aud was given many caiesses by
the elite among his father's patients
but the wife never suspected anything
until the chance-denouement at the
borne of Dr. Dickson's father in Clin
tou, Pa., when she found a collar be
longing to her husband on tha dresser
in Jessie Ray's room.
Dr. Dickson, it is charged, spf:.i
hundreds of dollars educating the
pretty nurse, and then established ber
in tbe home of his father, Professor
James Dickson, at Clinton, Pa. The
latter is widely known as an ednca

employed as a nurse at the Passuvant
hospital, where he was employed at
that time as surgeon A friendship
started that ripened into love.
Five years ago Dr. Dickson decided
that bis pretty assistant required a
post graduate course in nursing, and
sent her to an institution at Mount Un
ion, Ohio.
Later a child was born to the
nurse, and the mother and baby wcie
installed in the home of Professor
Dickson. Dr. Dickson made frequent
trips to Clinton for periods of several
days, but his wife thought his visits
were professional or that he went
merely to see his father. She knew
that the nurse lived in the house, but
never once suspected tbe true state of
affairs. Things continued this way far
nearly four years.
The denouement came last April
during a visit of Mrs. Dickson to her
father-in-law. Suffering from a head
ache, Mrs. Dickson went to Miss Ray
to ask for medicine to relieve her pain
She entered the nurse's room and the
two chatted together for several min
utes As they talked Mrs. Dickson
strolled to tbe dresser, where she found
a man's soiled collai and a cravat
which she recognized as lelonging to
her husband. She examined the tie
'How did this get hereT" she aaked
The nurse looked up.
"Ob," she lemarked casually, "that
belongs to our Joe."
Her remarks caused Mrs. Dickson to
investigate the relations between hei
husband and Miss Ray, which ended
in the filing of a suit for absolute di
The heart stories form the ander
current of the tide, which baa swept
the marriage of Dr. Dickson and his
pretty wife to the divorce court.
On tbe woman's side there is a tale
of years of trust and affection, which
apparently was returned in full by hei
husband. Yet tbe latter, loving hit
wife, and never failing to declare that
love and admiration to the world at
large, seems to love children more, and
when be found his wife unable to beat
him otfspiing sought out another
woman, wno could bear him a son.
According to Dr. Dickson's defense,
as given by bio fnends, he wan merely
carrying out tbe ancltent law of Moses.

skill in bis profession, be wished, then
