LAKE ARIEL RAILWAY.
Different Routes Are Being Measured
But No Decision Has Been Made
No decision as to the route of the
proposed Scranton and Lake Ariel
railway will not be reached by the
promoters until the several surveys,

The object of the company is to
secure the cheapest entrance to the
city and several surveys have been
made for this purpose.
Surveys are being made both from
the north and from the eastt One

Moosic lake station and another

Lombroso, Noted Alienist, Dead.
TURIN, Oct. 20. Cesare Lom
broso, tho most eminent criminolo
gist and alienist in the world, died
at his home here early to-day, the
victim of a sudden cerebral hemor
rhage. His illness was short.
Dr. Lombroso was born In Verona
in 1836, of Venetian-Jewish ances
try. His father's name was Aaron
Levi. He received his education at
the University of Turin, where lie
later was to become a professor. At
the time of his death he occupied the
chair of psychiatry in the local uni
versity, a place ho had held for many
years. His marriage took place in
1870 after he had attained a measure
of his fame as a scientific thinker
As a writer he was practically pro
lific. He published several volumes
In English on psychology and klnd-red-toplcs
and about fifty in Italian,
besides counting interviews, special
articles and magazine contributions.
His particular study was the devel
operaont of the criminal mind, a field
In which lie had no equal, and he de
voted years to the critical examina
tion of criminals in prisons and in
sane asylums all over the world.
Although he was repeatedly at
tacked for what had been termed
his sensationalism and his proneness
to sqck newspaper publicity, savants
everywhere conceded that as a
student of criminology Lambroso
had no equal, living or dead. He
said, not once but often, that genius
was a higher form of madness, and
his own case served to emphasize
this theory, for some of his own
methods and deductions, brilliant
and audacious though they were,
smacked of an overchanged Intellect.
In the latter years of his life he
became an ardent convert to spirit
It was an accident which led
Lombroso into the study of crimino
logy. For the first eight years after
his graduation from college he was
a military surgeon in the Italian
army. A soldier in an insane fit
of anger killed an .officer and was
executed. Lombroso making a cur
sory autopsy upon the body of the
criminal was surprised to find in the
skull an occipital dimple, the "foss-
ette occipltale," which ordinarily
Is not developed in man but is char
acteristic of the skulls of monkeys
It occurred to the young surgeon
that crime of the soldier was the
result of an Incomplete development
of the brain Indicated by the pecu
llarity which he had noted. His first
promulgation of this theory created
a sensation, but following it up with
experiment and study, Lambroso
eventually proved to the satisfaction
of the scientific world, how crime
originates, how it is propogated and
how the criminal degenerate maybe
detected through his physical ab

THE GROW SCANDAL.
Interesting Reading Matter About
tho Sago of Glcmvood.
Out of the closet of the late
Galusha A. Grow stalks again the
skeleton that rattled shortly after
the Sage of Glcnwood's death.
It comes this time through a di
vorce tangle In New York, the hus
band of the woman in the case de
claring that Grow, who never mar
ried was the father ot tho woman.
Galusha A. Grow lived In Glen
wood, Susquehanna county, was
speaker of the national house of rep
resentatives during the civil war and
a statesman of nation wide reputation
the greatest product that this end of
the state produced in that respect.
When he died a suit was started by
a Brooklyn lawyer for $10,000 for
legal fees. Much secrecy was thrown
about the matter but It came out
that the lawyer claimed the fees for
services rendered In putting an end
to a system of black mall to which
Grow had to sumblt for years by a
pair of New York women, one pur
porting to be the mother of a child
It developed recently that Mrs.
Katherlne Livingstone-Williams was
divorced from her husband, the lat
ter bringing the suit, naming an
other man as correspondent. Mrs.
Livingstone was Grow's ward. That
Isn't in dispute. She, however,
never knew who her father was al
though she was taught to call a
Madame DeFossez "mamma" and a
Mrs. Cloony "grandma."
When approached on the matter
recently Williams stated that Grow,
almost with his dying breath admit
ted the paternity of the girl. Said
'For fear I shall be misunder
stood I will say that I have Just se
cured a divorce from my wife who
was Miss Katherlne Livingston.
Yes; she is the daughter of Galusha
A. Grow, if this must be known.
Grow himself told me she was his
daughter. I will not name the man
who figured in my divorce from her.
He was not, however, the original
cause of breaking up my home."
Now the story goes that the wo
man and a lawyer used the girl as
a means of blackmailing Grow. It
is a known fact that when Grow
died he wasn't worth a penny hard
ly and dependent on the bounty of
Andrew Carnegie, it was said. All
that was left was tho home and that
It is asserted that Grow was
mulcted out of $200,000 through
the fear of exposure. The last levy
is said to have been $60,000, of
which the girl got 23,000, the
woman $22,000, a lawyer $10,000,
and another man $5,000. Grow
died shortly afterwards.
The husband of the girl now di
vorced went to Grow and begged
him to tell the truth, whereupon it
is stated that Grow admitted she
was his daughter, but no amount of
pressure could bring out who the
Grow was introduced to Mrs.
Katherine Clooney in New York by
former Governor Fenton, of New
York. Many worshipped at her
shrine. She was a beautiful and
bright woman. Madame De Fossez
was her daughter.
