RELIC FOUND IN INN Ancient Bible Discovered in Build ing at Columbus, Ohio. Records Birth of Nine Children of Its Owner, Mary, Wife of Chris tobal Moyer Is Dated Phila delphia, 1790. Columbus, Ohio. An Interesting historic record has boon found in tho ruins of tho old Franklin building, High and Cherry streots, site of Col nmbus' first public Inn, hut now In process of demolition under orders of tho state flro marshal, who regarded tho structure a menace to occupants. Tho relic was found by W. H. Lovor of 27G South Wall street, under tho crumbling wood of tho first floor. It was an old blblo, containing tho Psalms of David "In meter." It declares Itself to bo "the version approved by tho church of Sco.tland," and was printed by William Young, bookseller, 52 Second street, the cor ner of Chestnut street, In Philadel phia. Underneath this statement Is tho date "1790," showing tho work to havo been printed 122 years ago. It Is yellow with age. Evidently it was tho property of Mary Farmer, tho daughter of William and Jano Farmer, who was' born In 1738, according to tho carefully writ ten family records It contains. Rec ords of tho births of nlno children follow. They were tho offspring of Chrlstobal and Mary Meyer, early set tlers and pioneers. These family data read In part as follows: "Elizabeth Moyer was born on Mon day, December tho 25th, In the year of our Lord 1801.' "Mary Meyor was born on tho third day of December In tho year of our Lord 1803." The records continue to show tho birth of Nancy Meyer in 1805. Wil liam Meyer In 1798, John In 1794, An drew In 1798, Charles In 1807, Samuel In 1809 and Deborah in 1812. On the title page appears tho fol lowing: "Blblo and Psalms of David In Metre, translated and diligently com pared with tho original toxt and form er translations." In spite of Its ago tho relic Is easily legible and Is well preserved. Its historic Interest makes It a valuablo find. Tho old Franklin building, which preserved tho relic beneath Its timbers for more than a century, was not only tho first hotel in Columbia, but also tho most portcn tlous framo building erected In this part of tho country. Boforo its con struction practically all Columbus structures and abodes w.ero mado of logs. Somo months ngo tho deputies of tho stato fire marshal inspected tho building and found It to bo so badly worn with ago that It constituted a menace to any occupants. It was ordered destroyed, but tho orderB were for a time resisted owing to tho his toric character of tho building. Ho cently the state olflclals wero obeyed and the building wrecked.

Sten chock whipped his mulo Into a gallop as tho roar mulo was sucked Into tho chasm. Burnski slid over the animal's head, and, grabbing- tho traces of tho second mulo, was pullod clear of tho cavo-ln.

Now York. Whllo other rich worn en with nothing particular to do nro busy in tho suffragetto movement or giving pink teas for forolgn missions, we'll stop and take off our hats to Mrs. Otto Wagner of this big, silly, cruel city. Without any effort to at tact public attention to herself, Mrs. Wngncr has sot In oporatlon a real and original charity. Sho calls It the Antlovictlon coclety. At present tho society consists simply of Mrs. Wag ner and somo fow of hor friends whom Bho has called on tor modost contributions of cash. Thero Is, iww evor, such a definite field for genuine charitable effort In tho movement which Mrs. Wagner has begun that n pormanent organization is being formed with tho purposo of securing sufficient funds to carry out Mrs. Wagner's idea In a systematic wny. Every week a scoro of famlllrs in tho poor quarters of Now York are evicted from their homes homes that aro hardly worthy of tho name, per haps, but homes nevertheless. Fre quently it is tho duty of these ofllclnls to turn sick mothers, helpless chil dren or aged people, with thoir poor belonging, out upon tho sidewalk. Tho landlord wants hs rent. Nothing olso counts with him. Mrs. Wugnor has arranged with otllclals of tho sher iff's office to bo notified In ndvanoo of ovory Intended o lotion. Sho has or ganized a cominlttoty among hor friends to assist In tho work of In vestigating each caso, and whero tho failure to pay rent Is duo to sickness or othor gonulno dlstross to advance tho smnll amount of monoy nccossary to help tho lmpovorUhcd family out and the local lnw itrm of Mnrbury, Oosncll & Williams. Tho fco Is to bo taken out of tho ?500,u00 allowed to Mr. WInnns grandchildren. it Is understood tho payment of tho $500,000 to tho grandchildren of tho millionaire will necessitate all tho legatocB giving up part of tho monoy loft thorn, and It will therefore causo a prorata diminution of tho bequest of ?500,C00 mado to Miss Dorothy Batcman of Nowport, a young friend of Mr WlnanB. Whether Thomas B. Wlnans, tho son of tho millionaire, who wns cut oft with a small part of tho estate by tho will of his father, will mnko a fight for n greater sharo of tho cstato Is still uncertain.
