Visits Home of Shakespeare.
Stratford-On-Avon , June 10. From
Oxford we went by coach through ru
ral England , and the country is very
beautiful at this time of the year ; the
crops aio good , groves and forests dot
the landscape , and the coaching was
England has many large estates of
gentlemen , some of which contain two
and four thousand acres. These arc
kept much for hunting lodges and are
farmed very little. This Is one reason
why the fanning problem Is congested.
It seems that a far better thing than
to feed the bigoted desires of these
English gentlemen would be to divide
these lodges up Into small farms -md
then let the poorer people cultivate
these lands. England surely has plen
ty of poor people ; they need work
Wo visited the ancient village of
Kenllworth , which has been more not
ed because of Scott's novel by the
same name. In the time of Henry III
the castle became a royal residence.
Queen Elizabeth , during her rolgn ,
held many splendid entertainments In
this castle , and she It was who granted
It to Robert Dudley in 15G2.
This noted castle , now In ruins , has
had a varied history. Cromwell's sol
diers destroyed much of it In their
campaigns. From Koiillworth we
coached into Warwick , another castle
city. But tills is a very quiet , sleepy
old place. The very atmosphere Is
drowsy , like the prologue ot tlio Vision
of Sir Launfal. The glory of Warwick
is Its castle. H is the most magnify
cent of ancient feudal mansions of
Englisli nobility , now used as a resi
As we roam through these castles
and palaces of a thousand years age
wo see the life and footprints of dif
ferent conditions than we see today ,
Conquest , show and idleness were the
amusements of the royal people In
those days , who cared little for theii
subjects , whether they starved 01
froze to death.
England is a beautiful country , but
it Is crowded. The weather is very
changeable , and it Is no place for the
poor man , for wages are very low.
One of the great delights of oui
coaching trip was our visit to Shot
tery , the birthplace of Anne Hathaway
the wife of Shakespeare , and we were
shown this old relic of 400 years ago
It Is a very plain , ordinary house , but
in its beginning no doubt was looked
upon as one of the fine mansions ol
the community. But the city more
noted is Stratford-On-Avon , for here
April 23 , 1561 , the celebrated large
minded William Shakespeare was
born , one of the greatest men of all
ages , and as a writer he 1ms never had
an equal. I have always loved his
charming language , which is often n
fascination. We got permission tc
visit the house In which Shakespeare
was born , in Henley street. It Is n
two-story wooden house of large spa
cious rooms showing that 400 years
ago it would easily be looked upon as
one of the best residences in the com
munity. Here for many years lived
this genius of the English language.
Many of Shakespeare's sayings bear
the tint of divine inspiration , and much
of his philosophy is worth our belie !
and practice. In Hamlet he says :
"To thine own self be true
And it must follow
As the night the day
Thou canst not then be
False to any man. "
What could be more true than this ?
The house is now used for a museum ,
iu which are many interesting relics
of the Shakespeare family. There is
the old writing desk , gold signet ring ,
the original quarto editions of "The
Merchant of Venice , " "A Midsummer
Night's Dream , " of year 1600.
There is an autograph signature in
the museum recently found in the pub
lic library of London by Professor
Wallace of the Nebraska state univer
sity , who is hero on a year's leave of
absence. This one discovery has al
ready given Professor Wallace a world
name and he is offered important
chairs In colleges in Europe to keep
him here. It is not certain as yet
whether he will accept.
From Shakespeare's birthplace we
crossed over to the Holy Trinity
church and here we viewed the tomb
of this immortal writer whose glory
surmounts that of other men. Hero
he sleeps , and by his side is buried
his wife. Not knowing what evil men
might pass by and disturb his peace
ful rest , Shakespeare wrote this epi
taph for his tomb :
"Good friend for Jesus sake forbeare ,
To digg the dust enclosed heare.
Blest be ye man yt spares thes stones
And curst be he yt moves my bones. "
This quaint saying is carved on a
marble slab and placed over the tomb.
The beautiful quiet , narrow little Avon
river and all the surrounding country
is quiet and charming , and how we
longed to linger many weeks and drink
in of the richness of the place. Strat
ford is a town of 10,000 people , has
paved streets and fine stores and
buildings , although many of these are
very old. Some hotels are named as
"Tho Red Horse , " "The Black Swan , "
" " " Fountain. "
"The Farmhouse" and "Tho
At the latter we had a delightful stay.
Opposite this hotel is a magnificent
marble fountain donated to the city
by George W. Chllds of Philadelphia ,
Tourists Are Velvet.
But had It not been for Shakespeare
the people of Stratford would have
had a hard time , for the tourists keep
the business going. The stores arc
full of pictures , relics , books and , In
fact , everything that will sell , having
the naino or portrait of Shakespeare ,
It is Just so , for "tho good men do
lives after them , but the bad Is oft
interred with their bones , " or ought
to be anyway. And we are all hasten
ing on to bo remembered or forgotten
by what we ore and how wo live ,
Happy those who can lead others out
from the cares , worries and troubles
of life and dally duties to claim , by
right of Jesus' blood the treasure. * of
a heavenly city. . So like the weaver's
shuttle wo are fast at work spinning
our eternal robe , which , if It fits when
finished has boon made by the pattern
of the Man of Galileo.
Hut we arc too busy with life's tem
poral duties ; wo eat. sleep and pass
our time for Business and worldly suc
cess Instead of to attain the goal of
high and holy living , which is God's
plan for humanity. How little wo
need , how little wo eat ( some excep
tions ) ; yet time like a stream pours
In upon us the current that changes
youth Into old age and the rosy cheeks
Into the wrinkled face , and like light
ning's Hash those changes come.
Shakespeaic is gone , but ho Is still
here , real , Inspiring and profitable.
And you are going down toward the
setting of the sun and the veil will
part , and hence on Its ( light your .spir
its will wing their way. "Perhaps It
Is bettor so. " Wo often weep and feel
no better , yet we must weep at times ,
for this belongs to human nature.
I see by the calendar that my time
is passing ( illicitly , but will be pleased
If Providence penults to turn my steps
homeward to Norfolk as soon as my
arduous duties are finished In Europe.
1 am trusting all America Is prosper
ous and that the stars still wave for
Charles Wayne Ray.
In Ancient Scotland.
Glasgow , Scotland , June 27. My
heart was greatly moved by the
world's missionary convention , and
the Interest and Inspiration was won
derful , especially because of the spirit
of union and good feeling among the
delegates. Hut from this peaceful ses
sion and the quiet ot many days in
Edinburgh I leaped forth on my con-
tinned tour , now alone , but soon to
meet my second party.
Passing through Scotland westward
the country is very foitilo and produc
tive in homo parts but in other places
It Is very hilly and rocky.
The sheep and cattle raising is a
large industry in England and Scot
land , because , as &ome farmers told
me , there Is less work about it than
there Is In cultivating the land.
1 am now seeing Glasgow , which is
on the west coast of Scotland , where
as Edinburgh is on the east coast.
Glasgow is the commercial metropolis
of Scotland , and has 850,000 inhab
itants , and the council finds it neces
sary to employ 1 , " > ,000 men to carry o-i
the city business at a cost of $20OUO-
The municipal building is a large
marble structure costing $3,000,000 ,
but it would be a worthy monument
In any city. It stands In St. George's
square , and is surrounded by statues
to tlio following noted people : Queen
Victoria and f prince consort , Robert
Burns , Lord ClydeV. . E. Gladstone ,
Thomas Campbell Sir John Moore ;
James Watt , Thomas Graham , David
Livingstone and Sir Walter Scott.
The art gallery in the west end of
the city contains many remarkable
pictures and relics that every visitor
to Glasgow is sure to see. Then op
posite the gallery on a high hill is the
great Glasgow university , founded in
1450 A. D. It has about 3,000 students
every year and ranks as one of the
highest in scholarship in the world.
Hundreds of young men from America
come hero to finish their education.
England and Scotland are pending
large sums of money on education ,
and young people are not allowed to
work and stay out of school until they
are 16 years of age. This is most com
mendable , for the future of any suc
cessful nation must depend on educat
ed leaders for officers and rulers.
Glasgow is favored in that it is di
vided by the Clyde river , for this gives
the city water communication with all
the world. The big steamers are con
stantly moving up and down the river.
It was a delight to me to have a twen
ty-live mile trip through the ship yards
on the Clyde river. Here I saw hun
dreds of big and little ships in the
course of construction and thousands
of men busy hammering the iron and
steel. Perhaps it seems big to speak
of ship yards twenty miles long on
both sides of the Clyde river , but this
time I am tolling the real truth , which
may stagger the minds of those who
have been in the habit of hearing just
stories. Without this great industry
of ship building I do not know what
the laboring men of Glasgow would do.
It is worthy to note here that the
"Lusitanin , " the largest steamer of
the Cunard line , was built at Glasgow.
It is 785 feet long and draws 29 feet
G Inches of water , and yet this huge
monster of the sea passed down the
Clyde river In one tide without a hitch.
There are many beautiful parks and
public buildings which I cannot take
time to mention , except to say further
that the city Is very prosperous now.
The shops and stores are well filled
with buyers and the street cars are
doing a thriving business.
Sundays Are Quiet.
It Is commendable how those Scotch
people close up their stores and shops
on Sunday. Even the restaurants are
closed , and hero too , as in Edinburgh ,
the street preachers Instruct the people
ple in righteousness and they always
have large crowds to hear them. The
people seem eager to hear the gospel ,
and I must confess that they are ahead
of America on churchgolng , and yet
the people here tell me that their min
isters arc not as good speakers as
While In Glasgow it was a great
pleasure to me to ho feasted in the
homo of William Fraser , a brother of
Mrs. William Graham , wife of the popular -
ular baker of Norfolk , who Is delighted
with his homo in America. I present
ed a letter from Mr. Graham to Mr.
Fraser and I was received with open
arms and feasted on' the best that
Glasgow had. They considered It an
honor to have an American guest and
1 took It as great honor to dine In a
good old Scotch home.
Still filled with the roving spirit I
took the fast steamer , the "Isle of Ar-
ran. " and loft the beaten path of tour
ists and wont far out In the ocean.
Captain Huchanan showed me a great
honor by taking me up on the "bridge"
of the ship , and I guess I felt like a
king , although 1 don't know how a
king feels. This \\'as n fine voyage ,
because of the splendid landscape
along the river as we passed out into
the ocean. Our steamer stopped at
several cities out of the river , as at
Dumbarton , a line town In which Is
the famous Dumbarton castle , situat
ed on a high rocky cliff overlooking
the city and the bay. Other stopping
places wore Port Glasgow , Groonok ,
Innollan , Kirn , until wo came at last
to the charming city of Rothosay on
the Isle of Bute. This Isle out In the
ocean Is three miles wldo and fifteen
miles long. The land Is all owned by
John C. Stuart , the marquis of Bute ,
who routs It to the farmers , of whom
there are one hundred. This Is a de
lightfully quiet place and the city tow
ering up the mountain side Is one of
unsurpassed charms , and the Esplan
ade , the main street skirting along
the bay , Is ornamented with a park
three or four miles In length.
I came up to Rothosay more espe
cially because 1 had a letter from Mr.
William Graham , whom 1 have men
tioned , tolslt his sisters , for here n
was he was born and lived prclously
to being allured to America. Well , I
presented my letter and was received
with open arms , and was entertained
Tt the home of Dugald Gillies , a broth
er-in-law of Mr. Graham. But In the
evening the relatives and friends gath
ered at the home and I was given a
great banquet , and such Scotch songs
as "Annie Laurie" and "Auld Lang
Sync" weie sung and this feast lasted
until the coining of the morning. This
was not all. That day I was taken far
across the Isle of Bute on the electric
car to Ettrick Bay , which Is a sum
mer excursion station. This was very
interesting because we passed a grove
In which were image stones which the
Druids worshipped a long time ago , in
fact , before Caesar came to the British
Isle in 55 B. C.
There is a famous castle In Rothe-
say built In 1098 A. D. , long before
America was discovered. Besides , I
saw here an old Hour mill , established
in 1480 , called the King's Mill , and it
is still used.
It is marvelous witli what skill the
workmeil of these countries built their
homos and palaces. Most of the build
ings are of stone or hard brick.
Is Offered a Church.
These people that I visited are lead
ers In the United Free Church of Scot
land , and it happened that just now
their minister is leaving , so they In
formed me , an American Methodist
minister , that they were going to give
me a call to become their pastor at
.C500 and a beautiful manse and villa
for a home to use while pastor. How
ever , I doubt If my Norfolk parish and
friends would listen to me becoming
a foreign Presbyterian minister. I
shall always remember with pleasure
this delightful voyage out to the Isle
of Bute. I may add that the young
people of these Scotch families arc
soon to come to America to make cneir
home and fortune. It Is amazing tne
great number of people who arc leav
ing Scotland for the United States and
Canada. After Mils splendid excur
sion I returned to Glasgow , where I
am awaiting my party. Glasgow has a
beautiful Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. \ .
building. The people are so accom
modating for example , I stopped one
day to ask a policeman where the mu
nicipal building was , and after he told
me how to go , he said , "wait and I'll
go with you , " so he left his "beat" and
walked four blocks witli me , and oven
showed me through the hall , but it did
cause a little stir on the streets , as
many thought I was being taken to
In sightseeing I have not forgotten
my own country , but I see congress
voted appropriation of one billion and
fifty-five million dollars for expenses ,
which is the largest ever voted.
And the pope of Rome Is again hav
ing trouble , this time with Spain ,
which has granted the dissenting
churches the right to carry and dis
play the symbols of their faith in pub
lic , which the pope thinks belongs to
the Roman church alone. Such big
otry should be buried so deep that not
even Gabriel could resurrect It.
1 must close , but will first say , the

FOR SUMMER NIGHT COMFORT.
Second Story Sleeping Porch Solves
Collier's Weekly : How to sleep In
comfort on warm summer nights Is n
problem of city life that uncounted
thousands of families never have been
able to solve. The ordinary flat or
apartment house holds the heat llko
n patent tireless cooker , and the only
hope of comparative comfort Is thereof
roof or the fire escapes. Among those
who are fortunate enough to live In
houses , a surprisingly large number
have solved the problem by convert
ing their second story porches into
bedrooms. Once you have built a
wooden rampart , say thirty Inches
high , around the bottom of the out
door sleeping room for protection
from the gaze of the milkman and
the grocer's boy and have screen the
upper part to keep out the mosquitoes
and the files , the summer nights be
come something lyric. You can un
derstand then the situation explained
by Edward Young In his "Night
Thoughts , " when ho spoke of
Tired Nature's sweet restorer , balmy

Where fortune smiles ; tlio wretched
It Is nearly as cool on the open
porch as under the sky and anyone
who has over been a camper knows
what a dlffoieuco there Is between
that and a room. Instead of trying to
sleep with your head bosldo a rectan
gular opening In the wall about two
and n half feed wide and three feet
high , your pillow now Is close to a
window , which Is fully four feet high ,
and perhaps as wldo as the house. In
stead of staring at black walls and
a melancholy glimmer of light coming
from the hallway , you llo now watchIng -
Ing the stars and the waving treetops.
The crickets squeak drowsily , and the
sound of the wind In the loaves is as
soothing to the man on the porch as
to any camper. On the llrst night , of
course , you may bo restless. The
moonlight may bother you and crick
ets seem to need oiling. Hut another
night and you hear the crickets grate
fully , and there Is something hystlc
In the distant piano. For a few mln
utes you llo stretched out In thankful
lestfulness , the Ideal ending for a day
of conscientious labor. The crickets
begin to drone and blend tholr squoaki
together , and the treetops \\avo more
and nioro mystically until you fall
asloop. Morning comes with a tre
mendous chirping of sparrows and the
sound of a rooster crowing somewhere.
You lie a little while breathing deep

HERE'S A HOT WEATHER MENU.
Prof. Ellen H. Richards of Boston , Ad
vised Against a Meat Diet.
Boston , July 16. Those Bostonese
who can are sitting in the Atlantic
ocean these days to keep cool. As for
the rest , here are the instruction of
Prof. Ellen H. Richards of the chair
of sanitary chemistry at the Massa
chusetts Institne of Technology , the
only woman instrucor on the staff :
"Eat as little as you can , just bare
ly enough to keep you going.
"Keep as quiet as possible.
"Don't drink too much at meals.
"Use ice water freely , but put your
hands in it Instead of pulling it Into
"Eat no meat , no sugar , little fat.
"Eat vegetables , fruit and especially
bread and milk. "
"Good milk and bread you can't
finding anything better to eat on these
roasting days , " Mrs. Richards explain
ed , "you don't want to eat sugar and
sweet things , because they give you
heat so quickly. Alcohol gets into
circulation in two or three minutes af
ter you drink It , and sugar in about
five minutes. Starch takes a half or
three-quarters of an hour to get Into
circulation , so after you eat starchy
foods you have time enough to cool
off before they get into the blood.
"Cut down your eating about two-
thirds. Yes , I really mean this eat
about two-thirds less than you eat
In cooler weather. What we eat for-
any way , in large measure , Is to keep
warm. When the temperature is at
GO degrees , we need to eat enough
to keep the temperature of our bodies
at 98degrees. But when the outside
temperature Is 90 degrees , need "at
only enough to make up the remaining
eight degrees. Eat just as little as
you can. Fruit , that Is good fruit
not decayed In the least Is splendid
for the hot weather menu , and there
Is a delightful variety of fruits In the
market at present.
"Don't eat meat. Or , If you feel
that you can't get along without it ,
eat light meat , such as veal or chick
en. Cheese , you will find , Is better
than meat these hot days and just as
"Iced drinks are not harmful , If you
take them In moderation. Bo sure not
to drink too much Iced stuff at meals.
And don't drink It too fast.
"Put your hands In Ice water In
stead of drinking it. You will find
this much more refreshing than tak
ing It Into the mouth. Keep as quiet
as possible In hot weather and try
this hand and wrist cooler. Yon will
be astonished to find how comfortable
you get through the sultriest hours.
"Ill tell you some other dishes that
I eat In these warm days. For the
breakfast the bowl of bread and milk
does nicely. Then , for lunch , say ,
two bananas , with a roll and butter
and a little cheese. Since a banana
Is rather tasteless , squeeze the jutco
of a lemon over It. This makes an
extremely refreshing dish. Bananas ,
by the way , are both cheap and highly
nutritious. The food value of bananas
Is like that of potatoes. For the third
meal of the day the hot meal which
almost everyone wants at least once
In twenty-four hours try cooked vege
tables. For Instance , I had sweet po
tatoes and string beans yesterday.
Two cooked vegetables with bread are
enough for a good meal.
"Follow this scheme of diet and
you'll bo better off In health , comfort
and packet book. "
"FIGHTING A DRUTAL GAME. "
Nothing In Common With the College
Sport , a K. U. Professor Says.
Lawrence , Kan , , July 1G. Dr. JIUIIOH
Nalsmlth , professor of physical educa
tion In the University of Kiuinna , and
director of gymnastics , suld todi y that
he saw nbsolut lnotl.lng to uphold
In pugilism. He IPconcd prize figutlni ;
to cock fighting and bull lighting , ami
said that any comparison of such a
sport to college athletics was made
Ignorance. In vlow of the fact that
Professor Maurice Pnrmloo of the de
partment of sociology and economies
recently pointed out the physical ben
efits of pugilism , the statement of Doc
tor Nalsmlth can only be taken in
direct refutation of what the professor
of sociology said.
"Pugilism has nothing In common
with football or any of the college
sports , " declared Doctor Nalsinlth.
"for In these any Injury to the play
ers Is Incidental and not a necessary
part of the sport. Pugilism , however ,
should bo classed with cock lighting ,
bear baiting and bull lighting , for the
common aim is to so Injure the com
batant that ho is unable ( o carry on
"The aim of pugilism and the great
desire of every pugilist Is to bo able
to deal such a blow to an opponot that
ho will be rendered unconscious. This
often results In a concussion of tlio
brain and Is by no moans a minor In
jury. This Is shown by the statements
of fighters , who assert that a man
who hns once been knocked out Is
never the same fighter again.
"It is hard to see how a contest en
tered into with this as an end can beef
of any benefit to the Individual or
the race. It might have been bene
ficial In those ages when might , made
right and the individual was supreme
and each had to destroy the other or
bo destroyed , but the spirit of today
in our social and , to some extent , In
our commercial life , is the 'square
deal' for every man. "
Doctor Naismith then pointed out
that it was pretty hard to see how a
man is to got any kind of a "square
deal" if another .is willing to knock
him unconscious In order to e > btaln
the big end of a purse. Ho said that
It was impossible to eliminate those
evils so long as there is money at
"A comparison between such a sport
and college athletics must surely be
made in jest or in ignorance , " ho add
ed , "for the whole aim of the students
and the faculty of the university is to
do away with just such evils from our
college athletics. "
ARMY WORMS LARM FARMERS.
Doing Much Damage to Crops In Vi
cinity of Water-town.
Watcrtown , S. D. , July 1C. The ap-
pearce of vast hordes of army worms
In Denel county is causing by far more
crop alarm than the dry weather.
Practically every acre of timothy In
the county is said to be ruined , and
the post is beginning to work on the
wheat fields. Sections of Hamlln and
Clark counties also are reported at
tacked by this crop destroyer.
Farmers in Deuol county were at a
loss to account for the loss of their
timothy until one discovered the vast
number of worms , and sent specimens
to Professor Severln , entomologist of
the state agricultural college at Brook-
ings. Here they were recognized at
once , and most vigorous measures
were taken to protect the remaining
Thousands of circulars have been
Issued giving Instructions how to pro
tect fields not yet ravaged by the
pest. These circulars have been now
placed In the hands of every farmer
as far as possible , and the plan Is to
have every farmer In each of several
counties adjoining those affected thor
oughly acquainted with the best way
to light the worms.
Professor Severln advises plowing
two or three parallel furrows around
the fields not yet destroyed , turning
the dirt in the direction the advance
of the worms is expected. In these
furrows dig postholcs every fifteen
foot , and six Inches deep. In Its for
ward march the worm will not climb
the vertical side of the furrow until
it first moves laterally in search of
an easier way. In the lateral move
ment It will fall Into the holes , where
It may be easily killed by crushing or
by a dash of kerosene.
The worms will destroy a field of
wheat In a few hours and move to the
next field In regular formation , a habit
from which they derive their name.
