GEN. BARRY SUCCEEDS GRANT
Ma, Oen. Thomas H. Barry, U. S.
AV superintendent of the United
States Military Academy at West
Point, has been appointed command
er of the Eastern division of the army
with headquarters on Governor's is
land, as successor of the late Oen. F.
General Barry's tour of duty at West
Point still had more than two years
to run, but the fact that he has long
been, known as one of the officers to
whom active command of troops par
ticularly appeals makes It quite cer
tain that he welcomes the command.
General Barry was born in New
York city, and may be termed "a typi
cal product of New York city." He
was born and reared In the old First
ward, and there are men in .that city,
with, whom he played and fought as a
boy, who still love to tell stories of
General Barry's boyhood.
In July, 1873, Barry entered West
Point. He graduated In 1877, and was
assigned as a second lieutenant to the Seventh cavalry, Custer's old command.
After three years In the Seventh cavalry he was transferred to the First
infantry. " ,
In the Pine Ridge campaign in 1891 Barry was promoted to a captaincy.
In August, 1903, President Roosevelt sent General Barry's name to the
senato for confirmation as a brigadier general. In 1907 General Barry was
sent to Cuba as commander of the American troops in the second occupation
of the Island.
On September 1, 1910, General Barry succeeded Col. Hugh L. Bcott, of the
Third cavalry, as superintendent of West Point.
MAY SOON BE MAJOR-GENERAL
Brig. Gen. Frederick Funston, com
mander of the Department of Califor
nia, who at any time may be promoted
to major general, is one of the "fight
ingest" little men In Uncle Sam's
army, and a general who was not
turned out In the polishing mill at
West Point. He jumped into the fight
ing game from the seemingly Innocu
ous calling of a government botanical
explorer and made good.
Fred Funston, the captor of Agulnal
do and the conqueror of the Philip
pines, cornea of a fighting family, be
ing the son of Edward Hogue Funston,
a captain In the Union army during
the Civil war, and Ann Elizabeth
Mitchell Funston, a descendant of
Daniel Boone. The elder Funston
served three terms In congress, was
for many years a Kansas legislator
and speaker of the house.
The son of thlB hardy Kansan left
his father's farm In his teens and went
to Mexico. There he picked up Span
ish and sufficient American dollars to come back home and enter the Kansas
State university In his early twenties. He alternated for several years be
tween the cloistered halls of learning and the great outdoors, earning outdoors
the wherewithal to keep him at his books Indoors.
First he was a train collector for the Santa Fe, then he tried bis hand at
reporting for Kansas City newspapers and later he became a government
botanical explorer In the Dakotas and In Montana, In the terrible Death Val
ley of southern California, In the Alaskan wilderness, and wherever the gov
ernment thought fit to send him in quest of rare and unique scientific data.

Oscar Hammersteih. had the proud
est moment of his life recently when
King George gave him a handshake In
the beautiful vestibule of the London
opera house. It was his majesty's' first
visit to the opera house, to which he
went to attend a concert in aid. of the
League of Mercy.
The king, accompanied by Queen
Mary, Princess Mary and Prince Al
bert, was received there by Prince
and Princess Alexander of Teck, Prin
cess Victoria of Schleswig-Holsteln,
the Earl of Chesterfield, Lord Far
quhar and the Countess of Chester
After the ladles had been presented
to their majesties, the dowager Coun
tess of Chesterfield Introduced ' Mr.
Hammersteln to Prince Alexander,
who presented him to King George.
The king, grasping Mr, Hammer-
stein's hand, .said:
"I am delighted with the effort you
are making here today and it gives
me great pleasure to come to your house."
The star item in the program was an abbreviated garden scene from
"Faust," sung by four Americans Felice Lyne, Lydia Locke, Orville Harrold
and Henry Welldon.
At the close of the performance the queen summoned Miss Lyne, who
still was in costume as Marguerite, to the royal box, saying:
"I must compliment you upon your beautiful voice. I understand you
are half American."
Miss Lyne archly replied: "No, your majesty, I am ail American."
WU TING-FANG COMING BACK
If he still retains one-half the en
thusiasm for which he is famous in
America Dr. Wu Ting-fang will have
the time of his life when he returns
to Washington to enter upon his third
term of service as Chinese minister
to the United States. His many friends
in official and in private life are al
ready planning to give him such a wel
come as has never been accorded an
other returning diplomat. His ca
pacity for enjoyment when It comes
to banquets and dinner parties and
his power of endurance when It comes
to pink teas will In all probability be
taxed to the utmost. The more stren
ous the program, however, the more
gleeful will probably be the indefatigl
ble Wu Ting-fang.
With the announcement that Dr. Wu
will come to this country as repre
sentative of Yuan Shin Kal, president
of tbe Chinese republic, society at the
national capital has shaken off its
springtime lassitude. Stories of the
famous Chinaman's sayings have been revived. Anecdotes concerning his ec
centricities, his startling originality and his sharpness of tongue are numer
ous. He is remembered as the man who made the interrogation point famous.
He was known as "the human question mark."
