How the Girls and Boys
LiWouId Arrange Them.
GREAT HINTS FROM LITTLE FOLKS
Suggestions by the Children as to
the llest Way to Make Them
Some school houses have their
grounds divided into two parts; one
part for a play ground, and the other
part for grass and flowers. Why not
have the grounds here that way? The
south side, to be the play ground, and
the east and west, grass and flowers;
A concrete walk, (because it will bo
a good deal better to keep shoveled
in the winter than a gravel walk and
would not bo muddy like a gravel
walk each time it rains) running
from the street walk to the school
door, and, on each side, a flower bed.
The trees would look very nice, nnd
I think not too shady if they were
between thirty or forty feet apart.
The walk on Court street would look
better if it was concrete, a good deal
wider, or stones laid leveler and wid
er. An iron fence with a pretty de
sign on, would be good to have divid
ing the school house property and the
property of the Presbyterian church.
The new high school grounds
should be seeded heavily all over, up
to about three feet from the walks,
in which should be planted all small
Maple trees should be planted
about fifteen or twenty feet apart
along the front walk facing the road.
There should be a concrete walk leaa
ing to the door from two dlrectins,
and on the walls should be planted
creeping Ivy to hide the white part,
and then there should be a small
fountain in the center, and next to
the houses should be planted a bushy
hedge that blossoms in summer. In
the back yard should be a small
play ground for the smaller children.
There should be rose bushes planted
along the walk leading to the doors,
and there should be two hitching
posts at the ends of the rounded
walks, and also two steps stones.
1 think that the best way to ar
range the play grounds of the new
High School would be to have the
front, which is on Church s-troet,
planted with grass seed, and the
south side and the side toward Court
street rolled hard and fixed for a play
ground. The play grounds will not
need to be very large as there will be
a large gymnasium in the basement
but it would be nice if there could be
a place to play foot-ball or base-ball;
and a few maple trees planted along
the edge of the grounds would look
nice also. It would be very pretty to
have a fountain in front with flower
beds around It, and gravel walks lead
ing up to It, and a few maple trees
planted around for shade would make
. It look still prettier. 1 think that it
would make the school house look
very beautiful to have ivy climb up
the walls, especially in front; but
too much Ivy would not look well.
1 think that the grounds will look
much better when the old buildings
are removed, and so 1 cannot tell how
to decorate them as well now as I
could If the old buildings were re
moved. XKVYSPAIMCHS AS MAKKRS
When, in 1887, 1 began the criti
cal study of the History of the United
States from 1850-1860, I was struck
with the paucity of material which
would serve the purpose of an ani
While considering my materials, I
was sruck with a statement cited by
Herbert Spencer as an illustration in
his Philosophy of Style: "A modern
newspaper statement, though prob'
ably true, If quoted In a book as tes
timony, would bo laughed at, but the
letter of a court gossip, if written
some centuries ago, is thought good
historical evidence." At about the
same time, I noticed that Motley used
as one of his main authorities for the
Battle of St. Quentin tho manuscript
of an anonymous writer. From these
two circumstances, it was a logical
reflection that some historians might
make an exaggerated estimate of the
value of manuscript material be
cause It reposed in dusty archives and
could be utilized only by severe labor
and long patience; and that Imbued
with this idea, other historians, for
other periods might neglect the news
paper because of Its ready accessi
bility. Jno. R. Fdrbes.
ALASKA'S HOT WATKR FARM.
Finding Warm Springs Underlying
His Claim, 3Ilner Drops Pick
and Raises Garden Truck.
Milwaukee, Wis. "At the risk of
being considered a romancer," said
Thomas R. Mitchell, "I am going to
tell you about the agricultural side of
Alaska. Of all the farms in the
world perhaps the most remarkable
is in Alaska on a small branch of the
Tanama River, only 126 mlles.south
of the Arctic Circle. It 1b owned and
operated by a man named Karshner.
"A few years ago Karshner was en
gaged in hunting gold when he came
across something which astonished
htm greatly. It was a little stream
of hot water. He traced the stream
to a spring, which was likewise hot,
and presently it became obvious that
a considerable area was underlaid by
such springs. Promptly deciding that
this was a discovery more valuable
than a gold mine; Karshner gave up
prospecting, obtained a quantity of
vegetable seeds of various kinds and
started In to raise garden truck.
"The temperature In that region
sometimes falls to 56 degrees below
zero, but a natural system of hot wa
ter heating, free of cost, was Just
the thing for truck gardening near
the Arctic Circle, where potatoes have
a market value of 25 cents and other
vegetables bring prices in proportion.
"The Karshner farm occupies a flat
area with a convenient slant toward
the south. Hot water oozing out ot
the ground, forms three small
streams which empty Into the nearby
river. Tho warm spring extends
over a distance of about a mile, and,
as the owner sa'ys, the heat must be
felt to bo believed. He goes on to
say that the place has a climate of
its own, for often there is no frost
when it Is freezing everywhere else.
"This hot water farmer has seven
ty hens and six pigs. He claims that
his crop of potatoes this year will
average over 300 bushels to the acre.
Tobacco grows finely and tomatoes
are a success. Squashes or various
kinds are grown, some of -them
weighing as much as fifty pounds.
Not content with that, Karshner gets
$1 apiece for his muskiuelons."

TUN XOR3IAL ATTITL'DK TOWARD
G. Lowes Dickinson, in the Atlan
i"1 for May, says: The normal attitude
of men towards death seems to be
one of inattention or evasion. They
do not trouble about it; they do not
want to trouble about it; and' they
resent its being called to their no
tice. -n this point the late Freder
ick Myers used to tell a story which
I have always thought very illuminat
ing. In conversation after dinner he
was pressing on his host the unwel
come question, what he thought
would happen after death. After
many evasions and much recalcit
rancy, the reluctant admission was
extorted: "Of course, if you press
me, I believe that we shall all enter
into eternal bliss; but I wish you
wouldn't talk about such disagree
able subjects." This I believe is ty
pical of the normal mood of most
men. They don't want to be wor
ried; and though probably, if the
question were pressed, they would ob
ject to the idea of extinction, they can
hardly be said to desire immortality.
Even at the point of death, it would
seem, this attitude is often main
tained. The Limit.

AND THEN HIMSELF
Young Dartmouth Graduate Takes
Miss Helen Mardcn's Life.
Northampton, Mass., April 29.
Helen Ayer Marden, of Somervllle,
Mass., a senior at Smith Collcgo and
one of the most popular young
women of her class, was shot on the
college campus this morning by her
rejected suitor, Porter MacDougal
Smith, a travelling salesman, of Chi
cago, and a graduate of Dartmouth.
She died four hours later in Dicken
son Hospital. After waiting just long
enough to bo certain that he had fat
ally shot her Smith turned his smok
ing revolver upon himself and pulled
the trigger. Death came Instantly to
The tragedy threw the entire col
lege into the wildest excitement.
The young women poured from the
dormitories and class rooms, where
they had gathered for morning lect
ures, and ran about in panic. The
chief of police, taking all his avail
able men with him, rushed to tho
scene, and President Seelyo hastened
members of his personal staff to the
campus to make a hurried Investiga
tion and report.
In the midst of the turmoil work
men called physicians nnd several of
them appeared on the run. They
found Smith dead and Miss Mnrden
lying close beside him breathing
heavily. There was a bullet hole In
her temple and two more in her
shoulders. They instantly saw there
was little chance for the young wo
man, hut on an improvised stretcher
she was rustled to the hospital, where
she was placed on the operating
table. A more careful examination
showed that death would ensue nnd
President Seelyo was notified.
The shooting took place shortly af
ter D o'clock directly in front of one
of the students' buildings. On the
campus at the time were a score or
more girls going to and from their
classes. Some of them, who were ac
qualnted with Miss Marden, saw the
young woman walking slowly along
in animated conversation with Smith.
She was a petite blonde, and they
noted that she looked exceptionally
pretty. Possibly one reason was
that her cheeks were unusually red.
The man, too, was talking animated'
ly, but there was nothing in his de
meanor to suggest under excitement.
Suddenly a sharp report echoed
against the walls of the massive
buildings. Miss Marden was seen to
reel. She sank to the ground slow
ly and as she did so the man fol-
fowed her convulsing form with
revolver, from the muzzle of which
curled a thin wreath of blue smoke.
Before any of the horrified on
lookers had a chance to move hand
or foot the revolver was discharged
again. A third shot followed the
second and then all was deathly
still. Cool observers say that Smith
stood for a moment contemplating
the body at his feet and then delib
erately raised the weapon to his head
There was a pause and then, with
the shot, the man sank until he was
prone beside the girl.
The commotion which followed was
started by a student, who shrieked
and ran to her dormitory. Others
ran toward the prostrate couple, and
then, changing their minds, ran the
other way. Some workmen, startled
by the shooting, gave the alarm.
At tho hospital It was found a bul
let had entered the girl's temple and
would cause death. Another bullet
had pierced the left shoulder and still
another tho right. The two latter
wounds were not so serious. From
tho position of the wound in tho
head the police concluded that Smith
had pressed the muzzle of his revol
ver against the young woman's tem
ple as she was standing and fired.
Then, wishing to make sure there
would be no slip in his murderous
programme, he shot twice as she lay
prostrate. His own plan of self-destruction
went through without a
While the doctors were working
over Miss Marden the police Inves
tigated. They found that Smith
was employed as a travelling sales
man for R. P. Smith & Sons, shoe
manufacturers, Chicago, and that the
firm thought him in the west attend
ing to his route. Instead he had
come eaBt to see the girl with whom
he fell desperately in love while a
student at Dartmouth College. He
was in a class one year ahead of
Miss Marden, having graduated last
spring, but he came to Northampton
last Christmas and visited her.

Calls Christian Science a Pestilence,
Hut Thinks the New Cult is
The Emmanuel Movement was dis
sected last night by the Rev. Isaac M.
Haldeman before his congregation in
the First Baptist Church at Seventy-
nlgth street and Broadway, in New
York dissected and denounced as
the most dangerous belief that has
ever entered the creed of a church.
He branded it merely a twin-sister of
Christian Science, and held It up as
even a more dangerous belief than
the cult of Mrs. Eddy.
There were several Christian Sci
entists and a few believers in the
Emmanuel Movement in the church
when the clergyman began his scath
ing arraignment of the movement.
Some of them left the sanctuary be
fore he had finished.
it had boon advertised that Mr.
I tableman would preach on "Is It a
Daughter of Christian Science the
Emmanuel Movement?" The church
was crowded to the doors long before
tho evening service began. He be
gan his subject by telling some of
the beliefs of the Christian Scientists
and of those who liave embraced the
'If the Emmanuel Movement did
not come in the name of tho Lord
lesus Christ. I would no more think
of discussing it than I would osteo
pathy, or any other profession," he
said. He explained that the move
ment was healing by mind, or, as he
expressed it, "healing by mentality
without salvation or redemption."
"The Emmanuel Movement protests
that If there never had been a Chris
tian Science it would have come into
existence just the same," said Mr.
Haldeman. "Christian Science says
'healtng by mind and not by medi
cine.' The Emmanuel Movement
says 'healing by mind in certain
cases.' Christian Science says 'no
drugs.' The Emmanuel Movement
says 'no drugs.' Christian Science
says 'no physician.' The Emmanuel
Movement says 'up to a certain time
no physician.' Christian Science
says 'there is no death.' The Emman
uel Movement says 'death is as nat
ural as birth, and in the last analy
sis death is only a little removed from
"The Emmanuel Movement and
Christian Science are almost twins.
If. it is not a daughter of Christian
Science, it gives all the praise to
Christian Science which a dutiful
daughter should give to her mother.
The Emmanuel Movement is more
insidious and dangerous than Chris
tian Science, for the latter is out
side tho orthodox church, while the
Emmanuel Movement is inside.
"Christian Science is a pestilence
and a poison and an open sore. The
Emmanuel Movem'ent is an ulcer, a
cancer, and a canker. Christian
Science Is a masterpiece of Satan,
with clothes partly off. The Emman
uel Movement is that with all the
clothes off. The Emmanuel Move
ment is Christian Science in the
church in disguise.
"Wherever men in the pulpits are
preaching a doctrine that turns the
church into a hospital and the. con
gregation into a clinic, they are
preaching Christian Science. The
Emmanuel Movement, when pushed
Into the open, Is directly against
every teaching of the New Testament.
It sets forth an absolute contradiction
to the word of God as to the founda
tion of man. It makes him a psychic,
"The translation of 'psychic' in the
Testament is 'natural.' The Em
manuel Movement says that death is
as natural as birth; that the grave
is just as sweet as the cradle. If that
be so, why do the Emmanuel expon
ents try to stop people from dy
ing? Why not let them die?
There are on the occasions of chil
dren being born, congregations and
birth parties. Why don't they have
death parties and death jubilees?
"When you see a man put to death
in an electric chair at Sing Sing you
call that natural? It is punishment.
Death is an enemy. It robs the heart,
the home. Jesus never came to re
concile men to death, but to give
them hope across the silent gulf.
But the Emmanuel movement tells
us it is as natural as birth. Between
the two there is a lie.
"Tho Emmanuel Movement says
there Is no such thing as virgin birth.
In doing so It denies tho divine birth
of Christ by the Virgin Mary. It
pulls the Son of God down from the
realm of deity and to the realm and
basis of naturalism. It eliminates
the diseases He cured. The leprosy
He cured, they say, was nothing but
a form of exzoma, and they can cure
that to-day, they say.
"The object of the Emmanuel
Movement is to bring the miracles of
healing of Jesus Christ down to the
level of mental suggestion. Is the
Emmanuel Movement Christian? Is
that Christian which tells us death
is a privilege, which makes regenera
tion as useless and foolish, which
takes from Jesus Christ His natural
wonders, which surrenders over all
religion to the criticism of college
professors and scientists?
"The Emmanuel Movement says:
'Here we take our stand on the New
Testament, as modern criticism con
strues it.' I'll tell you what modern
criticism Is. It laughs at tho splen
did procession of fulfilled 'prophecies
in tho book of Daniel."
At this point .several women and a
man who had been sitting near the
door got up hastily and left the

nqblest and best and most chivalrous.

called tho Emmanuel Movement go

physicians. It would turn loose a
band of freaks with banners on which
would be inscribed 'No doctors, no
doctors' bills, no medicine, no sick

danger of such a belief to women Is
appalling. The power of hypnotism
