TALKED OF FOR YEARS.
The Country Club Idea dates back !
several years and almost came to a 1
definite conclusion two years ago when
the Elmhurst boulevard was being i
graded. The club proposed at that ,
time was more on the "stag" order, '
although privileges were to be arranged j
for women. Inaccessibility killed the 1
boulevard scheme and the lending 1
spirits turned their attention to hunt
ing a site nearer home and to evolving
a plan whereby the club might be more
of a family Institution. The result is
the Country Club that will be a fact
and not an Idea by noon to-morrow.
By-laws and a constitution have been :
prepared nnd are ready for adoption.

I thing savoring of a "snap" about
j Wodnerdny nlfcht's meeting. He alto
stated that the opinion of fifteen of
the city teachers had been obtained
with regard to the books but their
names were not made public for
reasons which tho committee deemed
good and sufficient.
Tntrirg the remarks of President
Mitchell, he said some other things
which Mr. Jennings believed were
mount for him, and when the presi
dent finished Mr. Jennings promptly
took the Moor and retorted In a way
that brought the president to his feet
NO PERSONALITIES ALLOWED.
"You .will refrain from personalities,"
he said, as he pounded his desk with his
"I am answering you, and I will be as
personal as I think necessary to do so.
You have 1,0 right to nterrupt me. What
I said I am responsible for."
"I am also responsible for what I
have said," was President Mitchell s
answer, "nnd will maintain my posl-
Hon even if I have to name you.
This brought forth another vehement
rejoinder from Mr. Jennings, which
brought the president's gavel down a
number of times with a suddenness that
knocked a jump out of several of the
"You sit down," wns the president's
command to Mr. Jennings. "You can't
Indulge in any personalities here; I'll
not allow It."
Mr. Jennings did not sit down, but
he did start on a different tack and
after again commenting on tbo short
notice clven of the committee meeting
and departure from the old custom of
advertising for bids for books and of
bringing In the teachers of the scho.ds

THROWN UNDER A WAGON.
Marvelous Escape of Park B. Maxwsl
of Buffalo, from Serious Injury While
Bicycling on Mulberry Street.
To be run over by a loaded stone truck
nnd eseuDe with a broken finger and
lie loss of a diamond ring Is an ex
1 c Hence which few men would care
to risk, hut that was what happened
in MnlbeiT) street Wednesday evening
to Park B. Maxwell, of Buffalo, travel
ing passenger agent of the Nickel Plate
rai'road. It seems incomprehensible
that the combined weight of the truck
and its load of building stone, aggre
gnMng not less than 4.000 pounds, could
be lorno by the prostrate man with
out his being fatally Injured, yet there
Is ample and trustworthy evidence that
eii" hind wheel of the heavy vehicle
traversed the railroad man's body from
hln shoulder to his hip.
About 0 o'clock In the evenlnn Mr.
Xnxwell, accompanied by Mark L.
Smith, district passenger agent of tho
LacKawunna road, and two others left
Mr. Smith's house on Webster avenue
for a bicycle spin over the boule-vard.
Mr. Maxwell was the only Inexperienced
rider and was the last in the line, as
the party rode out Mulberry street.
STONE DID TIIR MISCHIEF.
Near Irving avenue the truck wilh
Its load of stone was met. In parsing
it Mr. Maxwell steered his wheel closer
to tho heavy vehicle than an experi
enced rider would have dune. The
front wheel of the bicycle ran onto a
round stone which "r.lewed" the ma
chine to one side and plunged the rldor
directly in front of one of the truck's
