CANT VOTE AND

It's Pathologically and Function,

Dr. Max G. Schlapp
RAGE SUICIDE IN BALLOT BOX
Dr. Schlapp Tells Women at. the Col
ony Club That Increased Activity
on Their Part Threatens tho Ex
tinction of the Species.
New York City. Tho trouble -with a
woman who wants to vote Is that she
is too katabollc. It Is a pathological
condition. The moment you, if you
are a woman, develop katabollc char
acteristics (which moans maleness)
to any pronounced degree you want
the ballot nnd won't be happy till you
Dr. Max G. Schlapp, of the Cornell
University Medical School, told col
lective woman at the Colony Club that
the gaining of the vote meant depopu
lation of the cradle through the un
eexlng, not virtual but physical, of
the mother of the race. He regards
It as a disease.
His scientific exposition of the prin
ciplesthe katabollsm involved was
the climax of the "antl" arguments,
which have heretofore contented
themselves with the assurance that
woman could not bear arms for her
country like a man. But Dr. Schlapp'a
assertion is the reversal of this prop
osition. She iray go to the ballot
box clothed with feminity and
emerge a Dr. Mary Walker. The
more activity, the more maleness, the
Dr. Schlapp explained the "conpuga
tlon" of cells, one (the female) being
large, well nourished, inactive. The
other (the male), uses up all Its en
ergy in functional activity, and is
small. If a sponge were cut in pieces,
said the doctor, each piece is capable
of reproducing the whole organism.
As groups o cells become specialized
from special functional activity they
lose their power of reproduction. They
have no energy left for that.
"Fertility diminishes as we rise in
the animal kingdom. There Is an an
tagonism between expenditure and
genesis," went on the doctor. "Tho
worker ant uses all her activity, nnd
therefore loses the power of reproduc
tion. Tho bat uses a great deal of
energy in flying; tho mouse uses lit
tle. So wo find tho mouse producing
eight to twelve young while the bat
produces but one." Ho quoted indus
trial statistics In connection with tho
birth rate to show the decrease in in
fants. "You may say that there Is a psy
chical reason for it," he continued.
"People don't want more than one or
two children, and men don't want
them any more than women do. Cut

Every thought has a cause, and this
thought is prompted by the Incrcas.
ing activity of women. They are b&
coming too katabollc and losing their
love of offspring; otherwise this lovo
would be stronger than the fear of
not being able to provide for their
children. The lower animals do not
"Statisticians contend that the
mother love, the lover of offspring, Is
diminishing with the greater function
al activity. It Is Spencer's own law
that Individuation increases at the ex
pense of genesis. That is, that there
is a loss of the sex quality, of the pro-
creative, with Increase in individual
activity. The law nolds good In the
three factors of growth, development
and expenditure. These three are all
antagonistic to genesis.
"The lowest cell organism, the mon
ocell, can produce 170,000,000 of its
kind in four days, tho elephant, the
other extreme, after thirty years, can
produce but one of Its kind in a per
iod of approximately five years.
"Woman is spending too much en
ergy by adding to her functional bur
dens, robbing herself of her forma
tive powers. What thr individual de
votes to activity means so much less
potential energy for the generative.
This holds good from the monocell to
the multi-cell organism."
Dr. Schlapp thought it was a pity
and a shame that women should have
to get out into the world and work for
a living. They are the victims of cir
cumstances. CARNEGIE ANTI-CHRISTIAN.

The Unprejudiced Observer.
A young woman who spends much
of her time copying In the Metropoli
tan Museum of Art, recently said in
the New York bun that a criticism
that had helped her a great deal in
her work came from a man to whom
she took a picture to be framed.
As the picture progressed, my
friends told me It was fine, she said.
Some of the other copyists said it
had "value," "character," "good color
ing," and ail those things, and even
one of the guards in the gallery got
real friendly one day. and remarked
that it wac the best copy f that pic
cure he had seer.
1 began to think that maybe, after
all, my several years ot study were
beginning to bear fruit.
When the picture was finished, 1
took it to the Iramer, where I pick
ed out a good frame. The man began
to figure on the cost
"I'll tell you, miss," he said, after
a while, "that frame will come to
three dollars ana ninety-tight cents
If 1 were you I'd get something cheap
er for that picture."

International Bible Lesson for
May x6, 'oo (Acts 14: x-28).
Religion and Christianity aro not
synonymous terms. People can have
religion without being Christians.
There is any amount of religion in
heathen lands. It is only In so-called
Christian lands that people can be
found who aro neither religious nor
Christian. The missionary who goes
to heathen lands to preach the gospel,
does not have to teach those darkened
minds the iuea of worship. In that
particular they are all ready for him.
The objects of religious adoration are
among the mo3t conspicuous things.
Those lands are full of temples, al
tars, sacrifices, priests, devotees. One
of the first things a heathen mother
teaches her child is to pray. Every
home has Its idol god, every trade
and profession its patron divinity.
They have religion enough in all con
science, but their religion is the pro
duct of superstition, of 'fear, of lust, of
murder, earthly, sensual, devilish.
Natural religion everywhere teaches
men that they are sinners and that
some rite, sacrifice or service is need
ed to propitiate an outraged divinity.
More Gods Than Men.
Greek and Roman mythology, tha
Epic of Homer, which was the Greek's
Bible, reveals to us the heathen mis
interpretation. As we read these
pages we see gods and men, not quite
in equal numbers, mingling in the
fray, and sweeping in bloody combat
about the walls of fated Troy. In that
ancient world each fountain had its
nymph; each brook its naiad; each
wood its dryad; each wind had its
presiding god. and a deity was at tho
beginning and end of diversified hu
man experience. The sea was heaved
by them, the earth teemed with them,
toe air swarmed with them. The uni
verse, as they knew it, was believed
to be filled with deities, inferior and
superior: and every natural occur
rence which they could not explain
W3.i supposed to be a direct interfer
ence of tho gods. Vast amount of rc
Hg'on, but no Christianity.
When the npostlc Paul was on his
first missionary journey he came into
contact with this phase of natural re
ligion at the city of Lystra. Having
performed a miracle in the healing of
a cripple there the priests and tho
people straightway jumped at the con
clusion that he was a divine being in
the guise of a man. They surmised
that Barnabas, on account of his per
sonal appearance was Jupiter himself,
and that Paul was Mercury, because
he was the chief speaker. And there
fore, before the apostles knew what
was on foot the altar of sacrifice was
prepared, the garlands were Woven
and the oxen were being led out to
sacrifice. They said, "The gods have
come down to us In the likeness of
Become Like Their Gods.
But the character of their religion
was speedily shown up. For the mo
ment they discovered their ludicrous
mistake they turned upon the men
they were just about to worship, and
permitted their Jewish enemies to
stone Paul to death. The extremely
pious worshippers of Jupiter one mo
ment, became a riotous, murderous
lynching party the next. It was gar
lands of roses at first; it was the
stones of the highway, maledictions
and curses the next. Religion, nat
ural religion stretches out itB hands in
the darkness, feeling after God, but it
has no answer for the soul's cry for
help, it has no transforming power
over the soul. They become like the
gods they worship.
But Paul was not the first, nor tho
last man, to realize the shifting na
ture of public opinion. Many a preach
er knows what it is to be fawned
upon at first and scratched later on.
Nothing is too good for him at his
coming; nothing is too harsh for him
at his going. In one sermon he can
make life-long enemies. In one trans
action he can accumulate a stock of
animosity that is exhaustless. Men
wno refuse to wear the world's gar
lands, must expect to feel the world's
Public Opinion Weathervane.
Public opinion is like a weathervane
which whirls about whichever way tho
wind blows, and has no other property
than to point out its direction. Such
considerations should cause us to
properly estimate its value. No man
should be puffed up when garlands
are woven for his brow, and no man
should complain when he is made the
target of abuse. Paul had not the
least idea that he had any godlike
qualities when they said he was cer
tainly Mercury, the spokesman of Jupi
ter and he had no words of harsh
vituperation when they said he was
a fraud, an imposter, and dragged his
mangled body through the streets.
We shall all get along better In this
life, if we put the world In Its proper
place, neither puffed up with Its flat
tery, nor depressed with Its power. If
we keep on food terms with the Cre
ator and our own hearts, we need not
fear the effect either of adulation or
condemnation. Let the wind blow
high or low, let It be a warm, south
summer zephyr, or a midwinter bllz
sard, It Is all tho same. There are
none of us yet who are either gods or
In his recent experiments with the
liquefaction of helium. Professor
Onnes ..erformed a labor of the most
exhausting description. "Not only,"
wo aro told, "waB the whole apparatus,
with its subsidiary arangements, test
ed to its utmost capacity, but the phy
sical energies of the professor and his
assistants wcro well-nigh exhausted
by the prolonged struggle." This Is
likely to givo to most readers an en
tirely novel idea of the labors ot the
laboratory. When the absoluto zero
is approached the obstacles that havo
to be overcome in order to lower the
temperaturo a few degrees are Im
mense. The boiling-point ot liquid
helium is four and one-halt degrees
Centigrade above absoluto zero. By
great effort the temperature was re
duced to three degrees, but without
affecting the mobility ot the liquid.
