A Iahaiaelai Itemonax. -
It la proper and natural to think
boot some unnouaUy Impressive me
morial to Abraham Lincoln, the one
hundredth anniversary of whose birth
b to bar a fitting celebration next
February. Among the world's nation
al he roc Lincoln hold a unique place,
lie waa a benefactor of his race and
ot hi era, but waa cut down before
he saw the end of his work or bad
time to reallzo what It meant to the
nation. If a monument shall lo need
ed to keep nitre tho memory of Lin
coln among coming generations of
Americans It should be one to recall
the peculiar greatness of the man and
the peculiar nature and Importance of
his work. It may be of marblo or of
bronze, a shaft a hospital or a school,
but whatever It form It should teach
the people who are not to know with
out learning what Lincoln was and
what he did.
Knowledge of George Washington
comes to American boya ami girls al
most with the A"B Cs. He was tho
first great American and can nctcr lie
displaced from that position as an an
swer to the most natural question to
como to tho American mind. Ho was
the father and the founder of this re
public. It Is not a matter for surprise
to chance upon a monument or tablet
Inscribed to Washington In any ont of
the way place. But vIth Lincoln there
1 a story, one that grows on the
mind and the feelings. Hla memorial
should be one to make the novitiate
eager to learn more of that great man.
The suggestion has been made to
construct a memorial highway from
Washington to the site of the battle of
Gettysburg, seventy-two miles distant
from the capital. In time this might
become another Apptnn Way, as cele
brated as tho first great Unman rnnd,
especially If monuments and toinlm
and other memorial structures should
be set up uloug It course. A mere
road used for the ordinary purpose of
travel might lu time lose Its signifi
cance as a memorial. It would he a
good road, of course, and the letter It
proved In this respect the weaker the
Impression It would lie likely to make
as a landmark of national hlntory.
Lincoln's great work wns wrought In
Washington, and probably the grand
est words he ever uttered Vt ere spoken
on those "dread heights of destiny,"
Cemetery Itldge. An) thing to recall
Lincoln at Gettysburg and to suggest
the significance of his being there and
saying what be did at that place at
that time could not lie amiss as tho
nation's grandest memorlnl to the sav
ior of the republic.
The Mind of Woman,
Woman is alwaya a puzzle to man,
so the men aay. Here comes Dr.
Thomas Claye Shaw, an eminent I'.nt
llsb psychologist declaring that nun
Is also a pntzle to woman. But nfter
all Is aald there Is In reality very little
difference between the two classes of
minds. One may be complimentary to
or may largely replace the other, and
the doctor affirms In no halting lan
guage that In suitable conditions of
education and environment the alleged
Inferiority of woman disappears. Just
at thla time the pronouncement ot Dr.
Shaw must como as a bombshell In
the camp of the opponents of the suf
fragettes In England.
All of the peculiarities of woman's
mental makeup, If there are any, this
authority accounts for as a matter of
peculiar development. As to tho so
"called-mental faculties, which mny sharper and now duller In wo
men than In men, "we cannot prove,
either from anatomy or iwychology,
that any ono of these faculties Is or
should be greater or less In women
than In men." Tho promlucuco given
by woman to dress, tho doctor says,
Is eaally accounted for. It Is not mere
vanity, but due perhaps to Inherited
tendencies, nnd their feelings and
Ideas ou the subject are often a mys
tery to the devotees of dress them
selves. They simply dress In their
own way because they have to and
fur their own satisfaction.
As to the psychological future of
woman. Dr. Shaw thinks that the fu
sion of the two qualities of mind, the
male and the female, Mould lend to
negative conduct. Anyway mind Is
not very different lu tho man or the
woman. Thlnklug Is a very simple
thing, and there Is no work, especially
no mental work, jiecullat to the one
or the other. "One sex might carry
on the work of the world Just as well
aa the other."
Why We Love Music.
A Japanese-American art critic bear
ing the BUggestlvo name of Hartmann,
writing lu Altrurln, seekH to necoiint
for the advancing tnxtu fur music In
this country aud what ho calls tho
decadent state of sculpture anil paint
ing. Briefly, this olerer declares
the conditions of modern life do no'
foster an understanding of MUlpturu
and of painting. We hardly ever m
the human body, and all our life Is
colorless. I'lctuns whUh ore curiosi
ties to us weru painted by masters
who were true to their times, and the
jioople of tbelr era were familiar with
the weird, mysterious and gorgeuiis
objects depicted utmn comas.
For an appreciation of sculpture aud
painting Mr. Hartmann Insists we
must bo prepared by culture, nnd we
must labor ourselves intelligently for
the sake of any gratification. But
music comes to us. It seems to af
ford pleasure to everybody and to tho
humblest mind. Music will produce
a happy effect even when the hearer
Is In a state ot exhaustion. Ameri
cans are Insatiable lovers of music,
and the fact that there nre so many
amateurs Is considered good pnif that
music Is everywhere met with genuine
appreciation. We nre curious almut
great pieces of tculpture and vain
about possessing ts-lebrnted pictures,
but music takes hold of ns. nnd we
cannot break the hold If we would.

The announcement of a new theory
as to the onue of pneumonia and the

was made recently nt n meeting of the

"From these cells the disease works

physician. "However, the fuel which
Is feeding the flames of disease still Is

"The simple remedy consequently Is
to draw this dangeious pus from thou

Professor A. Hcrscbcl In the Quar

tho extraordinary effects produced by
lightning In the midst of an ojien moor
In Northumberlaid. A bolu four or
Ave feet lu diameter was made In the
flat, peaty ground, and from this half
a dozen furrows extended on all sides.
Pieces of turf were thrown In various
"directions, one three feet In diameter
and a foot thick having fallen seventy
eight feet from the hole. Investiga

bad been bored "in the earth radiating
