! HER POINT OF VIEW !
This visitor to the Pan-American
exposition should not return home
without going out to East Aurora to
see the Jloycroft printing shop, and
most of all Elbert Hubbard.
Now East Aurora Is seventeen miles
away from Buffalo. A'ou go down
town to the Union depot and buy your
ticket on the New York, Pittsburg &
something or other railroad. The al
phabet is so nearly exhausted In giv
ing the initials of this railway that
I really cannot rememher all the rest.
AVhatever window you select at which
to buy your ticket a polite mnn will
tell you to go to the other. It will
cost you just ninety-two cents for a
Then you join a group with lunch
boxes and note books who look as If
they were going In the same direction
and you wait until the noisy man at
the gate yells, "Ebenczor and East
Uo.ir." "Hoar and Ebeue.er!" then
you rush for the little train composed
of an engine and two cars and you
are on the way.
It lies through a pretty country
this way, rich market gardens where
women toil in the hot sun, Holds of
wheat and rye and acres of buttercups

ran-Amcrican tourist and the summer
The train slops for an Instant
at Ebenezcr, and you find yourself
humming the old Methodist hymn.

Co tell Aunt Hhoda,

Her old gra.v goov is dead.
As a child, the mental picture of
raising one's Ebcnezer was that of Hy
ing into a rage, and for the life of you
the impression that it is a cairn "f
stores, a monument to mark one's
safe journey or one's growth in grace,
will not be fixed.
Ebenezer N, you notiee, a modest
little village of three houses and a
station. There may be more dwellings
beyond that gtoup of trees, but you
prefer to think It Is no larger than It
seems, i'ou speed on and at the next
stop the conductor remarks nuletly
"Kast Hoar," and you are at the end
of the expedition. There may be other
villages down the tracks where the
train, now nlmost entirely empty Is
leisurely travelling but you nre of the
opinion that lliete N nothing beyond
East Atirotn. That it Is the end of the
universe and there Is no future, no
past, nothing but eternal pe.tce and
test and Kast Aurora.
It is n pietty little village, wide
of street, and deep of shade and green
of earth. You wnlk up the way
beneath gigantic trees, past a blown
church of modern architecture until
you come to another chinch. The mas
sive stone woik, the quaint gables be
neath spreading elms immediately ar
resting your attention. If you are a
Philistine, you know ut once that this
"church" Is the Itoycioft printing shop,
that you ate brushing Itoycioft grasses
and breathing tho perfume of Hoy

Is a dream ot other years.

arc Illuminating, painting, folding

Is a soft, cool dimness, and the faces

ed In that they "have found their

Is only a village maiden, she says,
this tall, stately young goddess. She
found her work In Illuminating the
exquisite books which nre sent out
Into the world. She learned to do It
swiftly and well. "And because they
say I can talk," she admits, naively,
"I am sent about with visitors to
see the shop, We will now go to St.
Jerome's studio," she ndds placidly.
A'ou must know that everybody, ns
in the promise of heaven, has a new
name. It bus a peculiar significance
and dates back to some period in the
career of the worker, who, perhaps,
entered the place sore of foot and
sore of heart, buffetted by the wot Id
and baffled by fate. Here he litis
found peace, rest, affection and re
spect, and here be lingers in the
shadowy halls with n dread of the
glaring world, a shrinking from tho
St. Jerome, with his dark, curling
hair, bis wonderful eyes and his beau
tifully poised bead, seems not only
to have found his wdrk, but bis niche.
Somewhere back in the distant years
he was the boy, Jerome Connor, bear
ing the burden of being misunder
stood, beating his hands againt the
walls which closed him about. He
found ElGcrt Hubbard and the free
dom of eternal life in the work of
his soul, for he fashions rare models
of his fancy and expression of his
love from the clay on the long table,
and the marble in yonder block. A'ou
see Elbert Hubbard looking beyond
and through you from the niche above
your head. You see the sculptor's
wife in her splendid southern beauty.
A'ou see the Good Cray Poet, with his
bent brows and tho small daughter of
the Hubbard's, the little "Edition de
l.uxe," as they call her, the curve of
the childish lip caught so sweetly In
the clay, the lock of soft hair care-sing
the lineless brow, and you are
glad that St. Jerome Is alive. He
must have had a reincarnation from
some far-away Florentine artist of
buried ccntuiels and holds the dark
beauty and the facile touch of his
race as a heritage.
Then there Is the art workroom,
where the illuminated designs aro
completed, whete with artistic f Inge is
the young girls paint the quaint
similes of thought in lettering and
borders which so delight the eye of
the connoisseur in the Hoycroft books.
A'ou aro told that all these designs
aie Hie conceived by "Sammy," the
artist, whose perfect taste and judg
ment nre acknowledged In the world
of artistic bookmnklng. A'ou want to
see 'Sammy"; you have been shown
his photogiapli and have seen many
of tho superb drawings from his pen
cil, so you want to see "Sammy."
Finally, up in a tower mom, dusky,
cool and full of Rembrandt tones, you
see the artist. AVhen lo! AA'hat do
you suppose? AVby, "Sammy," the
head of the establishment as legards
the art work, Is Mr. Samuel AVarner,
of Scranton, born and reared In this
city nnd connected with several well
known families. He is a step-son of
the late Charles De Tong, and a son
of one long connected with the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western rail
road. Mr. AVarner has not been n resident
of Scranton for several years as his
art studies in Boston, New A'ork and
Europe have taken him away since
boyhood. He was here on the occa
sion of Mr. Hubbaid's vllt and lec
tin o in this city, and keeps up nn
Intimate friendship with Mr. Itobeit
Ailains and Air. John Bralnard. He
has great ability and no doubt a great
career, as he Is a young man with
ambition, His most recent work In
cludes splendid drawings of ihe por
traits of celebrated composers, for the
"I.lttle Journeys." They are drawn
with a free, bioad touch and the ut
most feeling. He has made a study of
old missals of the monasteries and the

an arllclo on "(lunvhot Wounds In the Filipino

Is generally neptle, and should bo treated on
this supposition. 2. Asepsla U duo chiefly to
the ehaiatter of Ihe bullet, and the early appli
cation of flrsl-iiM drculng; ami. In a, minor de

Is exceedingly rare, the hlood-vcscls being din

projectile. 4, 'Hie "explosive elTect" of the
modern bullet Is much lesa common than recent
military literature would Indicate. Thin pecil
tier ilctruclho i fleet Is produced by the char

severe hemorrhage, Is all tint Is ncoissar. 6.
Gutthot wounds of knee Joint aro usually aseptic,

lo save life. T. Hxclston of elbow Is alwajs a
Justifiable operation in levere shattering or Infec

Joints la rarely necessary, craslon or amputation
being preferable. 8. Injuries of net via from

Concerning "Oxzyn" Balm
That you may the better know the merits of "Oxzyn" Balm, a demonstration
has been arranged for, beginning this morning. "'Oxzyn" Balm has the endorsement of
Lillian Russell, Lucy Cleveland, Hilda Clark, Cora Tanner and so many other beautiful
and famous women that the claims made for it must be respected. It removes pimples,
blackheads, sun tan and blemishes of all kinds. If used according to directions, and
not satisfactory, the return of the empty jar will insure a refund of the price paid.
"Oxzyn" Balm has undoubted merit. The demonstrator here will make this more
than apparent. Special prices during demonstration;
