He had it in his power to present in
a graphic manner the circumstances
and conditions which gave plausibility
to the charge that he was part of a
conspiracy to assassinate Gobcl. Had
be been a great speaker, and desired
to put himself right, he would have
taken this course and justified to some
extent tbe various verdicts which were
rendered in his case. Then the cir
cumstances in his favor and his own
declaration of Innocence would have
made his vindication more complete.
He chose another course, aud confined
himself to hu attack on tbe prejudice
and unfairness of judge and juries.
This is tbe least satisfactory method
of exculpation that can be adopted
He could have made an interesting
lecture out of the forensic contests of
the lawyers, who alone were the real
actors in the tragedy, of which he was,
at best, tbe helpless victim. Surely
those who attacked blm and those who
defended deserved some place in tbe
cast. But the speaker ommitted even
to mention tbe names of those con
ducting tbe case
To the uitbinking and sympathizing
multitude he acquitted himself of tho

few, he revived tbe suspicion of bis

genuine Interest for the scholar nnd

the legend of Iilawathii and his gift of
corn to tho savages was of exceptional
merit and attractiveness. Tho ploturcs
thrown on the canvas wore very beau

ening to one competent and willing to
give nil the information required to
enable for self cure.
Dr. V. S. Sadler's lectin e on Amerl
canltls or High Pressure Life was ex
traordinary interesting. At the be
ginning, he called attention to an
apparatus for taking the blood press
ure of patients, aud invited those who
cared to have the apparatus applied to
them, nnd tests made as to the vigor
of their circulation, to occupy a corner
of the tent especially seated aud roped
oil for tholr accommodation. His as
sistants took the pressures while he
continued with his lecture. Perhaps
seventy-five patients were tested, and,1
the tests1 were read without disclosing
the name", except to tbo persons test
ed. The doctor then gave .the physical
causes for the high pressures which
prevailed among Americans. Alcohol,
tobacco, cocaine and morphine ranked
highest among drugs; meat eating and
overeating, pepper and vinegar aud
mustard, and tea aud coffee, were
enumerated as chief excitants of uudue
heart action, while worry was the chief J
mental factor in diseased circulation.
Tbe doctor's lecture was listened to
with (absorbed attention. Notwith
standing that it was several times in
terrupted by the rain, which falling
on the roof gave exaggerated notions
of a storm, there were few who took
the opportunities as they came in tbe
lulls to withdraw from the tent. Tbe
doctor's style of speaking, aud his
evident knowledge of the things of
which be was speak lug, nade an eag
erly attentive audience, which wished
to acquire all tbe information possible
on tbe subject. Tbe listeners follow
ed him with the enthusiasm which a
class would exhibit In a clinic.
Sunday was a well occupied day. Iu
t te morning, at tbe church hour, union
services were conducted iu the tent.

many more participating. MrS.Hadler
gave an Interesting lecture on .work

Miss Josephluu Mlor added to tho
interest of the occasion with 11 beautl

could rondor it.
In tho afternoon Dr. Sadler gave his
lecturo on Worry, Its Cause and Curo.
This wns undoubtedly tho most appre
ciated lecture of tho entire courso.
Wo have not space to attempt its sum
mary. Aftor tho lecture the womon
retired to tho Methodist church whore
Mrs. Dr. Sadler talked to them, while
tho doctor talked to men and boys In
the tent. Such u lecture as ho then
gave siiouut do given at least onco a
year in every community. One pro
position, however, is'admlt of quest
ion. Tbo doctor contended that par
ents should instruct their children In
tho mysteries of sex, beforo they have
un opportunity to leuru them from
those who will speak of such matters
witb vile Irreverence. Others beside
the dootor am beginning to urge this
duty upon the parents. Parents shirk
this duty, if it bo a duty. Tbe Chief
