Oflnterest to Women Readers DEAD Dr. Fallows of Reformed Episco pal Church Says Telepa thy Is a Fact SPIRITS WILL SOLVE PROBLEM Physic Phenomena Will Be TaUQht In Colleges Churchman Calls It "lm mortallsm," Which, He Says, Will 8oon Be Common. Chicago. "Telepathy Is an estab lished fact In recent years great strides have been made in the expla nation of psychic phenomena and in the years to come the science of com munication with the dead will be made a part of the curriculum of great educational Institutions. As its study becomes systematized and more wide ly spread greater advances will be made and as we now talk with materi al persons." This statement was made to a cor respondent by Bishop Samuel Fallows of the Reformed Episcopal Church. Future advancement in the science of "immortallsm," which is spiritual ism with the "fakes" left out, will some day bring it to the point where it will be studied by the masses Just as they now delve Into Latin, arith metic, geography or grammar, accord ing to Bishop Fallows, who spoke at St. Paul's "Why Am I an Immortalist and Not a Spiritualist?" Tho Bishop made some startling statements in discussing his sermon with the World correspondent to-day. He frankly states that he formerly fought shy of spiritualism and that ho is Just beginning to Icarn. In tho enlightened days to come, says Dr. Fallows, we shall bo able to converse with spirits of departed friends and relatives. Their Btate will be mado known to us through these communications. They will be able to advise us on knotty problems, ho adds. In his sermon Sunday, Bishop Fal lows quoted a speech of Dr. Adam Clarke, in which that celebrated com mentator said: "I believe that spirits may, accord ing to the order of God, in tho laws of their place of residence, have Inter course with this world and become possible to mortals." "Did you ever see a spirit?" Bishop Fallows was asked. "No, I never have,' was the answer. ,'But I know persons who claimed to have seen and talked with spirits, in telligent members of my own congre gation, whose words I have no reason to doubt. "I discourage them in their belief. I now feel that their experiences were of great value, and that I sustained an incalculable loss by not going deep er into the matter with them." "You really believe, then, that spir its may be visible to material persons, and that they may talk with and influ ence a material mind?" he was asked. "I do firmly believe that. There are well authenticated cases on record whore Important actions of noted men have been Influenced by some super natural communication. "In many cases they were unable to identify tho mysterious agencies. They had merely an intangible feel ing that they should chango their course. But in other cases they wero able to remember the spirit who talk ed to them, to repeat its exact words and to describe its appearance. Theso Instances cannot be doubted, as they come from men high in their profes sions. "There are great truths in spiritual ism. Many spiritualistic phenomena we cannot understand, but we have to admit them. I have called the new science 'Immortallsm' because it de pends for its existence upon the im mortality of the soul, in which wo all believe, and the preservation of Iden tity beyond the grave. Immortallsm is simply spiritualism with all the frauds and trickery eliminated. On account of these frauds spiritualism has been shunned by many right thinking people, but immortallsm will claim their most earnest attention." In support of his belief Bishop Fal lows quoted from many eminent men who have expressed similar views. Blackbirds Become Pests. Brazil, Ind. A wholesale slaughter against blackbirds has begun in this town. The birds come from every direction in great flocks and thou sands of them assemble nightly in the trees, their riolse making the resi dents nearly frantic. Flocks of mar tins assemble in the same neighbor hood and attack the blackbirds with great fury. The din has become un bearable, and the people have obtain ed permission from the officers to shoot tho pests. Landed 163 Pound 8wordf1sh. Avalon, Col. While Ashing off San Clement's Island L. Q.

FOR YOUNG CHICKS. Arkansas Station Bulletin on the Proper Feed, In order to have good, early matur ing birds it Is necessary that they havo a good start The care given tho first few weeks Is largely respon sible for success or failure later on. Regularity of feeding, cleanliness and pleaty of grit and clean, fresh water are all Important phases. Chicks, should bo protected from storms and sudden changes of weather, as these very often result in heavy mortality. Paultrymen differ as to when the chick should receive Its first food. Good results have been secured when the chicks have been permitted to pick a little sand or fine grit from a clean board when from 36 to 4S hours old. In no case should they receive food of any kind before they are at least 36 hours old. When about 48 hours old they may be fed hard-boiled eggs, crushed with the shells and bread crumbs of equal parts, moistened in milk and squeezed dry. After that almost any of the prepared chick foods may bo fed about five times a day till the chicks are from two to three weeks old, when coarser grains, such as wheat screenings and corn chop, may bo substituted and not fed oftener than three times a day It is advisable to let tho chicks have ac cess to green feed at all times. Fine clover hay cut with an ordinary straw cutter is excellent and also makes a good litter In which :o scatter the feed. Feeding chicks and keeping them growing is an art which enn only be learned by experience and for which no rules can bo given. Keep the chicks hungry or t least suffi ciently so to be eager to eat when fresh food is offered them. Sanitary Poultry Nest. The present day tendency to em ploy sanitary measures in tho dairy, the stable, the doghouse, etc., has at last extended to tho poultiy yard. Tho Industrious hen Is to be provided with a sanitary nost, which can be readily washed and scrubbed as occasion de mands. This recent development is shown In the accompanying illustra tion. The nest is made of wire and is supported in a suitable housing, botn Easily Cleaned, of which can bo removed from tho chicken house when cleaning Is neces sary. When thus removed they can bo conveniently placed in a suitable receptacle containing boiling water and thoroughly cleansed of all impuri ties and undesirable Insects. Softshell Eggs. The production of soltshelled eggs causes much anoyance and loss in many poultry-yards. Such eggs are valueless for any purpose save home use, as they cannot produce chickens and they cannot bo sent to market, says the American Cultivator. There are three causes of softshelled eggs, the commonest of which is an insuffi cient supply of shell forming material. Laying hens require a generous pro portion of lime in their food, as in 100 ordinary sized eggs there are more than 20 ounces of pure lime. Finely broken oyster shell is an excel lent and a cheap form in which to sup ply the necessary lime. Fright some times causes a hen to lay an egg with out a shell, but this is not so serious a matter, and is only temporary. The third cause is due to a derangement of the egg organs, and if the abundant supply of lime has not the desired ef fect more drastic measures are need ed. All food of a stimulating nature should be stopped at once, and an aperient given, consisting of one grain of calomel and one-twelfth grain of tartar emetic. A little iron should be added to the drinking water as a tonic, and the food should mainly con sist of boiled rice. Packing Eggs for Market. Instead of packing eggs in oats, saw dust or bran, for transportation to market, try placing a newspaper on the bottom of the box or basket Put In a layer of eggs, laying them close ly so as to prevent moving about Over this lay two thicknesses of news paper then another layer of eggs, and so on till tho receptacle is filled. Cov er the top layer with a blanket or shawl. This will be found more satis factory than the old way. Notes. If your hens are not getting along in their moult as fast as they should, give them some kind of tonic and food that will help the growth of new feathers. "Keep tie house clean" is good ad vice for any season, especially valua ble, for the hot months when filth oo Quickly breeds disease, . t Mother Forced Runaway Girl to Pose as Her Son for Nineteen Years SHE FLEES TO WEAR DRESSES Posthumous Child Named Frederick Visits Police and Emerges as Fed erica Tells Police Deception was Practiced to Gain Inheritance. Council Bluffs, Iowa. Frederick Adams, 19 years old, of Sioux City, walked into Police Headquarters here and said he was a girl. The police sergeant behind tho desk rubbed his eyes, took a steady look, signaled to two patrolmen and said: "Handle him gently; it's either sunstroke or plain lunacy." Adams became indig nant; repeated that he was a girl, and imparted the additional informa tion that he wanted the police to as sist him in. obtaining girl's clothing. At tho Insistent demand of the youth a matron was called and a remarkable story was developed. It took short investigation to estab lish the fact that the caller's real name is Miss Frederick Adams. The young woman was christened Fred erick in Plalnfleld, N. J., at the direc tion of her father, who died Bhortly before her birth. Tho man wished for a son, for the reason that a boy meant the winning of a large fortune. A relative stipulated in his will that if a boy was born to the Adamses the fortune would go to him when he reached his majority, but that if a girl was born the estate would be dis tributed among other relatives. The posthumous child was a girl, and with the object of gaining the Inheritance deception was practiced. The baby girl was called Frederick and was raised as a boy. Miss Adams appeared in Police Headquarters dressed in a blue serge suit, white shirt, turn down collar, bow tie, blue socks, patent leather shoes and jaunty straw hat. Her hair was cut short and parted at the side. "After father died mother took mo to a farm near Council Bluffs," said tho girl. "We live there yet, and I ran away yesterday. I have never boon permitted to bo a girl. When I was a child I wanted dolls, but my mother made nie play with tops and tin soldiers. I was turned out with buys and was forced to take part In their rough games. I had to fight with my fists and play marbles and baseball, and when I couldn't hel' crying the boys booed me and callet me 'Sissy' and told me to go homo to my mother's apron strings. "I stood it as long as I could. I had only to wait another two years, but if that fortune mado me as rich as Rockefeller I don't want it unless I can get it as a girl. I've worked on the farm as a boy and I don't like that. I've fished, hunted and played hookey from school as a boy, but now I want to bo my real self and wear girl's clothes and call myself Fred erica." The police were puzzled, but finally decided to take her before a magis trate. In court Miss Adams repeated her story and the magistrate remand ed her in the care of tho matron until her mother nrrives from Council Bluffs. The matron dressed the girl In feminine attire and in her first attempt to walk she tripped In tho skirt and went full length on the floor. SQUARE MEAL FOR NEWSBOY. Takes Place of Man Who Had to Hur ry from Restaurant. Minneapolis, Minn. "Jimmle" Burns, a tiny newsboy, obtained a sumptuous feast In a strange manner and he Is now known as "Lucky Jim mle." A man waiting for a Mlnnetonka car went into a Hennepin avenue ros taurant, and just as a big meal of steak, with side dishes and fruit, was placed in front of him he saw his car. Reluctantly he arose, paid the bill, and, on going outside, met little "Jim mle" to his place at the table and told him to "go to it" While the youngster was devouring the meal his companions spied him and he was the envy of all the other newsleb, who thought that he had made a big stako with bis papers. .Maple Tree Has Iron Heart. Darby, Pa. A maple tree on the property in G. Roberts Powell, has im bedded in its trunk an old brake beam about six inches wide which was placed in the crotch forty years ago by Powell's father. It is firmly imbedded in tho heart of the runk, with about a foot of it protruding on each side. Gallery of the Dead. Pittsburg, Pa. "A Gallery for the Dead," in which is kept a thorough system of photographs and measure ments of every unidentified person brought to the institution has been established at the County Morgue here. Bertillon operators are In chargo of the gallery. It is said the gallery is the only one of Its kind In the country.

Pretty ideas for table decorations are always welcome, and one sketch, illustrates an easily-made ornament, that should be especially welcome Just at this time of the year. It Is constructed with slender sticks of wood arranged In tripod fashion, and tied together at tho top with narrow ribbon. There are also throe slender sticks at base, that help to hold the longer pieces In position, and they are tied together with smart little ribbon bows where they cross. To finish off thi. ends of the sticks, little pins with colored glass hends are inserted. Suspended in the center 1b a small Japanese pot (theso little pots can be bought for a few cents, with holes in the rims already made, by which they may be hung up) nnd in which can be placed flowers or a small fern. Round and round the stick may be twisted the leaves of a creeper, such as smilax or small Ivy, making a very pleasing decoration for winter, and at other seasons there are always many pretty trailing plants available. On the left-hand sldo of tho sketch tho leaves are shown twisted round one of tho sticks, and all the rest of the woodwork Is left bare to show the way In which It should be constructed. A Knock at Fashion's Eye. It is hard to see what gain will come to the eighteen young women who are off to Europe with all their extra clothing packed in eighteen satchels, with only eighteen hats among the party to last until the re turn to this country. Of course, trav eling may be mado ligbtly easier, but there will be no recompense in frequent changes. Even in Europe omen take pride in their wardrobes, and incline to vanity In the problem of dress. Where is the fominine love of decoration in these eighteen Ameri can young women? One of tho joys of a European trip for the average woman is the exploration of the shops of the various capitals, and what do theso women Intend to do by way of diversion? Are they to go poking around old cathedrals and tumble down castles with guide books in their hands? They may gather much his toric lore on this tour, but if they expect to get close to the people of the Old World they will be mistaken. They will be shunned by the servants, in railroad stations, hotels and else where, who anticipate the size of the tip by tho show of prosperity. Wom en will be interested in them only as curiosities, and men will waste no admiration on them. High-minded and practical as may be the plan of these young women to travel 3,000 miles away from home in one hat and with a, single change of garments, it is likely they will meet nothing more curious on all their travels than them selves. Making a Rare Lettuce. Mrs. Francis G. Newlands, niece of Ward McAllister and wife of the Ne vada Senator, has succeeded in grow ing a rare lettuce in the garden of her country home near Washington. The lettuce is very bitter, and as a salad it Is a delicacy to the cultivated taste. Mrs. Newlands Imported the seed from Italy, and she is one of the first to grow this variety in America. The Newlands occupy the estate which formerly was the home of John R. McLean, and later was owned by Ad miral Dewey. Mrs. Newlands person ally directs all work in the extensive garden. Hero she grows a large vari ety of herbs. She has cut the garden in two with a low wall of loose Btones, which now is covered with vines of wild roses, honeysuckle and Ivy. Poise Revealed In a Woman's Walk. A woman who walks well is a more helpful member of society because she has better health. She is alert and alive, and finds all the world Inter esting. Then, too, the woman who has learned to walk gracefully finds a reaction on her nervous system. A new calmness and self-control show in her manner and face, and even more In her voice, for those delicate muscles which we call the vocal chords vibrate in harmony with tho movement of tho individual. And, free from self-consciousness, tho graceful woman expresses her best self, for her every motion suggests dignity, kindness, reserve power, sym pathy, and that most charming of all womanly attributes, graclousness.
