WHISKERS A BAR TO LOVE ?
No Charm In Them for Women , Says
Author of "The White Squaw. "
New York , Sept. 10. Miss Delia
Clarke has written a play in which
the despairing hero finally wins the
girl by shaving off his facial tapestry ,
thereby removing her objections.
Whiskers have no charms to soothe
even the savage breast , If we are to
believe Miss Clarke. In her play ,
"The White Squaw , " which is soon
to have a Broadway production in
which she will herself play the leadIng -
Ing role of Neamata , the little Indian
girl who refuses to marry the man i
who has loved her through four thrillIng -
Ing acts. Just because ho wears a
"Mystery may have Its charms , "
said this very 'pretty young woman
"but that does not apply to the face
of the man you fall in love with or
"The most important feature of a
man's face is his chin , and if it Is lost t
In a primeval forest of beard , how Is
n girl co tell whether she Is intrusting
her future to a weak creature , who
will go down at the ilrst little tap of f
adversity or one who will make a
man's light with the world ?
" 'Faint heart never won fair lady'
or whiskers , either. There are many
grouchy old bachelors today who
might have been happy husbands If
they had had the good sense to shave
at the psychological moment. "
"But you believe seriously that the
mere fact of his shaving them of t
could make a girl fall in love with
him ? "
"I certainly do. I know of several
cases in which women who had mar
rled men with beards were shocked , j
and disillusioned when their husbands
took a freak notion to appear clean
shaven. And that wasn't at all be
cause they admired beards , but be
cause they really saw the men they
had married for the first time , as thej

whiskers makes as reckless n gamble

JAMES' SPIRIT IS RETURNING.
Brookllne Pastor Says He Met "Pres
ence" of Dead Psychologist.
Boston , Mass. , Sept. 10. Prof. Wil 1-
Ham James , America's foremost pay
chologlst , who died a week ago last
Friday , has accomplished hlj expressed
pressed desire to communicate fron H
the beyond , according to the Rev. Dr
Frederic A. Wlggin of Brookllno , pas
tor of the Unity church.
Professor Jumcs died at Chocorua ,
N. II. , on August 2C , but Dr. Wlggin ,
who has been attending a convention
of splrltuallfita at Madison , Mo. , did
not learn the news until last Sunday.
He Immediately set himself to got
Into touch with the spirit of the psy
chologist , nnd says thift after an hour's
summoning of his control the spirit
"The spirit of Prof. William James
has manifested Itself to me , just as ho
promised he would , " said Dr. Wiggins.
"Within a week or so I believe my
control will be fully attuned to the
wnvo length vibrations of Professor
James , Dr. James Hyslop , and Dr.
Ilk-hard Hodgson , who passed over In
"When I learned last Sunday that
'rofcssor James had I
passed on re-
Ired to my room and sought to sum-
non my control. Ever since I have

been weakened or has disappeared al
together for days at a time. In my
ndivldual case , my control seems to
alto a vacation about the same time
that I do.
"With my control weakened , I felt
It would be difllcult to attain full com
munications at first , for you must
know that a man of-Professor James *
lilgh Intellectual type will emit from
Ills spirit high vibrations. As wo have
estimated these vibrations they vary
from thirty In a weak spirit to about
seventy-eight in the genius , and I
know that Professor James' vibra
tions must be at tlio latter rale. To
receive these spirit vibrations the con
trol must be strong.
"My control came to me after n
time , and I experienced a strong ln <
tlmation of a presence in the room.

positive that the presence that re

CORSETS WEAKEN THE MIND.
New York , Sept. 10. Off with tlio
corset ! Let waists bo unconflned !
Such Is the substance of a highly origi
nal document addressed to Mayor Gay-
nor by Dr. Hobert Sangiovanna , an
Italian physician , now in New York
"I buliovu , " mild Dr. Snnglovnnni ,
"that woman's incontestible mental in
feriority Is duo entirely to the use dur
ing long centuries of the injurious
corset. You cannot compress the body
without restricting the mind. The
corset is the symbol of countless pro
cesses by which the bodies and spirits
of women have been enslaved.
"Consider first the corset of the
body which causes many diseases , es
pecially anaemia and predisposition to
tuberculosis. Then there is the cor
set of custom and sentiment , which
shapes her mentality to what the aver
age man considers a fine womanliness ,
but whhlch in reality weakens her
moral muscles just as the constant
support of the bodily corsets weakens
her physical muscles. "
LEE SWORE , NOT WASHINGTON.
Marion Harland Denies Stories of Pro-
fanlty at Battle of Monmouth.
New York , Sept. 10. The oft repeat
ed story of Washington's profanity at
the Battle of Monmouth Is denied In
Marlon Hurland's autobiography on
the authority of the revolutionary vet
eran , Stirling Smith , who was uncle
to Marion Harland's grandfather.
"He did not swear , " the veteran
would thunder when Irreverent young
sters retailed the slander in his hear
ing. "I was close behind him and I
can tell you , sir , we rode fast , when
what should we meet running away
llckety split from the field of battle
with the British almost at their heels
but Gen'ral Lee and his men.
"Then with that , says Gen'ral Wash
ington , speaking out loud and sharp
says he , 'Gen'ral Lee , in God's name
what is the meaning of this ill-timed
, prudence ? '
"Now , you see , Gen'ral Lee he was
mighty high spirited. ' So he spenltE
up as haughty as the general had done
and says ho : 'I know of no one whc
has more of that most damnable vlr-
tue than your excellency. '
"So you see , young man , it was Gen'-
ml Leo that swore and not Gen'ral
Washington. Don't you ever let me
hear that Ho again. "
'l ' HOW THE CABINET LAUGHS.
President Taft Has the Most Uproar !
, ous Brand of Mirth.
Washington , Sept. 10. If as mud
i depends upon a man's laugh , or his
lack of laughter , as has been asserted
by a distinguished French scientist
I President Taft , who Is himself the fa
| ther of a particular brand of uproar !
mirth-sound has odd assort
j ous - , an
. ment of men whom he has placed ir
ofllco to run the affairs of the execu
tlve end of the government ,
; When tlio president was secretarj
. of war the heavy mahogany doors o
. the war department were not sufflcleni
to shut out the sound that issuet
forth , despite these barriers , when h <
saw something that struck him a :
h' ' funny. And ho saw many things Ir
this humorous light. Ho laughed more
than he has since , although from thi
. , executive office there still issues fortl
now and then the echo of a great ant
sonorous laugh , a big-man kind o >
laugh , bespeaking good digestion ant
good lungs. It is doubtful whcthoi
President Taft has selected a slngh
man who can duplicate his laugh , 01 >
- even conio anywhere near It.
' When Mr. Roosevelt was preslden
| he was no mean second in the matte :
cof laughter to his secretary of war
It wasn't the sonorous , easy going
. ' complacent sort , such as Prosldon
sTaft's , hut it had rare qualities. I
had the effect of making everyone
who heard it laugh , too , or at least
smile. It was exuberant ; choppy , If
you like ; Irregular , boyish at times ,
rising to n treble , us If its creator was
having the tlino of his Hfo at the mo
ment of Its utterance. Many Is the
11 mo that secretaries passing his door
stopped to smllo at this melody of
merriment , and It Issued forth most
often just at the time when one
thought that the colonel was in his
tightest corner , neld at bay by his
Former Governor Guild of Massa
chusetts took occasion the other day
before leaving for Mexico with the
American delegation which Is to at
tend the centennial celebration nt
Mexico City , to call upon Beckman
Wlnthrop , assistant secretary of the
navy. The result was a perfect flow
of laughter. Guild has the mellow
clubfellow laugh. It is nil of good
humor , comfort , enjoyment of the mo
ment. Wlnthrop's Inugh Is an utterly
wild , unrestrained sort that ripples
and splashes about ns if the survivor
of the tennis cabinet didn't care n rnp
for anything and proposed to amuse
himself a's he chose. Winthrop has
a hard time carrying on the traditions
of the former administration.
Secretary Knox , President Taft's
premier , likes a laugh now and then
but mostly then. The lips of the
secretary of state seldom omit a rip
ple , except when tlio moment Is a
most stimulating one. More frequent
ly he sits and smiles , and his eyes do
not laugh at all. They fix themselves
on whomsoever is nearest as though
the levity of the occasion were merely
a halt to draw out the other person
while the eyes scrutinized whatever
secrets of countenance might ho nn
veiled by the flash of merriment.
The secretary of war. J. M. Dlckin
son , has a raucous sort of laugh , al
though It is not especially distinctive.
It is much tlio same as that of any
big man who can take pleasure in a
funny story , but It does not always
Indicate a mirthful temperament.
George Von L. Meyer , secretary of
the navy , Is not a man of mirth. Ills
laugh Is a quiet ono , such as would
not cause any head to turn in the best
ordered drawing room , but lie has the
power of emitting it at the proper mo
ment. He can lean back in his chair
from the knottiest problem , unwrinklo
his forehead and give a mirthful , amia-
able , llttlo ripple which quite suits the
James Wilson , secretary of agricul
ture , and "grandfather of the cabinet , '
lias a nice , well defined , western Iowa
laugh when the idea strikes him. It is
a very characteristic sort of iineuphon
ions utterance. It comes forth unhid
den by circumstance , is not very loud
and depends entirely upon the secre
iary's inward state of being. He
laughs when he pleases.
George W. Wickorsham , attorney
general , is far different from Bonn
parto , his predecessor , who oftei
chuckled to himself whenever the
popular voice happened to be lam
basting him. It was a quiet , confiden
tial sort of chuckle , apparently not
meant for other ears. Wickershan
never laughs without conforming to
tlie usuages of the American Bar as
soclation and well defined rules o
propriety and etiquette. He is ful
of funny stories , however , and laughs
robustly on occasions.
G. H. Hitchcock ( postmaster gener
al , has a useful smllo , but laughing
is not ono of his prominent character
istics. Abandonment to mirth is no
In liis makeup. He would never think
of letting himself go to the extent o
giving an ungraceful and reverberat
Franklin MacVeagh , secretary of the
treasury , has a keen sense of hume
and enjoys telling stories as well a
hearing the anecdotes of others. He
indulges in pleasing little chuckle

Charles Nngel , secretary of the de
partment of commerce and labor , has
, a purring laugh which much of the
time is noncommittal and neutral. It
is a good evidence of cheerfulness , but
at the same time , if ho desires , it
often leaves his hearers in doubt as
to the depth of his mirth.
Richard A. Ballinger , secretary of
the department of the interior , has a
good fellow laugh that is well known
In the circles of his friends. It has
been classed by some as a political
laugh , and at times lias stood him in
the good stead , but It is never uproar
ious. Taken as a whole , the laughter
of the present cabinet is more or less
strained and the president has but lit
tle competition when he gives way to
mirth at a meeting of the executive

Thee Career of A. P. Doe.
Davenport ( la. ) Democrat : One ol
the most brilliant careers ever watch
ed in the city of Davenport came to
an end last Saturday night when A.
P. Doe , president of the Iowa Na
tional bank , died at Mercy hospital
at 11:55 : , after a prolonged Illness
from heart troubles. Everything that
medical science could administer was
used but to no avail , nnd death came
as a relief to a several weeks' suffer
Mr. Doe's deatli was not unexpect
ed. Ho had been unconscious for
several days proceeding , and his phy
sicians , Drs. W. L. Allen and D. J
McCarthy , had hold out no hope for
The suffering hours of Mr. Doe at
the hospital were brightened by the
presence of his daughter , Mrs. G. D.
Butterflold , of Norfolk , Neb. , who re
mained with him almost constantly
since his life was despaired of. She
Is I practically his only living relative ,
another daughter of Mr. Doe having
died at the age of IS yearn.
The story of his suffering at the
hospital Is ono that Indicates his
sturdy and healthy constitution. With
his heart failing dally , ho would lapse
from ono state of coma Into another.
Ho had failed considerably since his
serious operation sonio time ago.
For a man whose condition was as
serious ns was his for two weeks , ho
was scarcely bedridden at all. He ro-
mnlnod seated In a comfortable chair
In his room , and only those who were
with him constantly cnn apptcclnto
what ho wont through. While1 con
versing with his friends ho would
lapse Into a state of unconsciousness ,
and perhaps remain In n comatose con
dition for hours. When ho regained
consciousness he seemed to be some
what hotter. During the days when
he was In a state of coma for ten or
eleven hours , he remnrked to his
friends when ho revived that he never
had a bettor or more restful night
than the time when he was in that
He battled with death like a war
rior. For over a week he firmly be
lieved that through care and rest for
a few days he would bo well and
strong again. Later , however , that
flame of hope dwindled in his own
mind , and his own statements Indi
cated that he began to realize that it
would be only a mutter of time until
the end came.
Mr. Doe was n man of sterling char
acter. He was a careful business man ,
a wise counsellor and ono who look
ed beyond the present in his dealings
Ho was naturally of a rather quiet
and unassuming nature , but this trait
retained for him his friends. The
strides which the hanking institution
of which he was the head has made
during his presidency are attributed
in a great measure to him. He stud
ied conditions in the commercial and
financial world and was firmly con-1
vlnced of the wisdom of steps be
fore they were taken.
Furthermore , lie gained and retain
ed the love and respect of the entire -
tire working force of the Iowa Nnj
tlonal bank. lie worked with them
mil for them. And the assistants In
the hank in turn bent their best ef-
orts to carry out his wishes and
lopes. This trait was noticeable in
ill his dealings , not only in Ills bank-
ng career , but in Ills political and
mercantile- career as well.
Mr. Doe was a charter member of
'our Davenport banking institutions ,
he Citizens' National bank , the Scott
bounty Savings bank , the Iowa Na
tional bank and the Homo Savings
bank , this being the order of his as
sociation with the respective institu
tions. The Citizens' National bank
lias since become merged into the
German Savings bank.
Born In Maine.
Mr. Doe was born in Windhani , Me. ,
March 31 , 1S37 , coming from a family
of English origin. During his early
youth ho lived in the Pine Tree state ?
receiving his early education in the
public schools. It was when he was
29 years of ago that he first heard of
the west and its opportunities for
young men. He came direct to Dav
enport where he became identified
with the business interests of the city
as a wholesale shoe merchant. Pre
vious to this time Mr. Doe had become
a skilled mechanic in Merldan , Conn. ,
and was employed at the government
arsenal during the civil war in the
manufacture of rifles.
Mr. Doe was ono of the most pro
gressive and energetic Davenport
merchants for thirty-live years , hav
ing built up a successful trade in the
wholesale shoe business in tills city.
His careful management resulted in
continual development of the business
along substantial lines until the trade
of the house was represented by a
large figure annually.
In me year 1901 Mr. Doe decided
to leave the field of active business
life. In the meantime he had become
closely associated with the financial
interests of the Iowa National bank ,
of which lie was ono of tlio organiz
ers and of which ho was vice presi
dent until 1901. The stockholders of
the hank recognized his ability as a
financier and trusting in his faith and
conservative policies , clear insight
and sound judgment in the solution 1
of various problems which are con '
tinually arising in financial circles , 1
nnd in that year elected him as their
president. He continued in that po
sition until his death.
Married In 1864.
His marriage to Miss Julia M. Bry
ant of Windsor , Maine , was celebrated '
in 1SG4 , nnd she precedes him in '
death , having passed away in March ,
1905. Mr. Doe was well known in the 1
Masonic circles , having joined the
lodge at Bethlehem , Maine , in 1858.
During his residence in Davenport ho
had filled the chairs In the blue lodge I
and chapter and had taken the de
grees of Knights Templar command-
ery and of the Mystic Shrine.
Although his business interests
were of considerable extent nnd Im
portance , nevertheless ho found time 1
to devote to public nffnlrs nnd through 1
his public spirltcdncss ho had render
ed effective service to the city. Ho
was n progressive member of the city
council and several times served ns '
n member of the school board.
His civic activities gained for him 1
great popularity nnd later ho was
elected n member of the stnte legisla
ture , where the snmo spirit of loyalty
which characterized his service to the 1
municipal body displayed itself again.
His Great Benevolence.
Probably the most striking feature
of his Interests In public works was
his love for the work of the orphans'
homo , to which ho devoted much of
his time and business ability. For
ten years ho served ns president of '
the board of trustees of that Institu-
lion , which ho was Instrumental In
establishing. Owing in a large meas
ure to Ills efforts the mutter of organ
izing the homo was brought up before
the legislature nnd from the time of
Its Inception until his death ho was
ono of the most nctlvo factors In Its I
At the boglnnlng a slngo room con- '
stltutod the homo nnd at times light
and boat were scarce. Through the
unflagging energy of Mr. Dee and his
associates , the Immense establish
ment , known as the Orphans' homo , '
has been developed to Its present' '
The manual training department of
the home was Instituted at Ills sug
gestion and IIP has developed It along
lines that point to perfection. His
great love for the child and his roe
ognltlon of Its possibilities hnvo per
mitted him to do sorvlco that IH of
inestimable value to the state as well
as to the city in surrounding the
young with such environments as
shall develop honorable manhood and
wonianhoor , reclaiming them front
lives of wrongdoing Into which want
or Idleness and lack of common edu
cation might have driven them.
One daughter , Mrs. Alice M. But-
torlleld. of Norfolk , Neb. , lives to
mourn his death.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CLOTHES.
Blue , a Woman Says , is the Color That
Lures a Man ,
Now York , Sept. 10. A woman who
' studies the clothes question and sees
In It the psychological possibilities ,
has worked out some theories of lines ,
silhouettes and colors.
" 1 ne lines of the modern dress are

to fascinate a man always wears a

! amusing , but whose affection is not
too deep , prefers pink. The greatest
good that comes from the fashions of
j today is that middle age is lost sight
' of. The middle-aged woman no longer
' selects violet , black and gray. Youth
has taken those becoming colors , and
the extremely simple lines which fori , i
' merly wore supposed to indicate a
woman's renunciation of the world at
, about 35 are now the fashion for wo
men of all ages. "
