Victories of Peace.
The rank and importance of what
they proved it is difficult to make lay
sen understand especially those in
cooler latitudes who never know the
terror of yellow fever. 'Men of 'science
rank it with Jenner's discovery of vac
cination, and " Listens invention of
aseptic surgery. But the fate, of these
surgeons is perfectly intelligible. Maj.
Seed, broken in health, returned to
the United States, and lived long
enough to get an honorary degree
from Harvard. A popular subscrip
tion is now being taken to bu-ild a
monument to him. Dr. Lazear was a
victim to his own ' devotion to the
work; he died from yellow fever after
permitting infected mosquitoes to bite
him. Dr. Carrol, more fortunate, re
covered from the disease following ex- j
perimental inoculation, but he never
knew a well day after he plunged his
hand into the fatal jar. Maj. Reed's
widow has a pension of $125 a month
from the United States; Dr. Lazear's
receives $17. There is no person, de
clares Collier's, who is not touched
seat; to the depths of his capacity for
admiration by the thought of these
men. Their monuments should be set
up for inspiration In every school
throughout the land where youths are
taught to become physicians.
Farthest North Race.
It looks like another "farthest north"
race. Dr. Frederick A. Cook of Brook
lyn.' who is an arctic explorer of some
note, having been surgeon of one of
Commander Peary's expeditions and
of a Belgian exploring party ten years
ago, is now well up to the pole. His
party, when last heard of, was en
camped at a point 650 miles south of
the pole, and considerably farther
north than was reached by the late
Peary expedition, although Peary him
self penetrated to within about 200
allies of the object of the search. It is
Dr. Cook's intention to dash to the
Borth pole when the conditions are fa
vorable, and his wife, who has just re
tained from the polar region, is confi
dent he will sacceed. This appears
like trying to steal a march on Peary,
who was making elaborate prepara
tions for another trip northward, but
was compelled to abandon the project
for the present because bis ship could
not be put in readiness.
Reports come from London every
few months that SL Paul's cathedral
is settling and that its walls are
cracking. A committee of architects
appointed to inquire into the 'condition
of the building when the county coun
cil planned to 'run -a sewer within 45
feet of the southwest tower has re
ported and, although repairs are need
ed at once, the structure is in no im
mediate danger of collapse. It need 3
to be carefully watched, however. The
foundations do not rest on bed-rock,
and as the water has been drained
from the subsoil, the earth has set
tled, and allowed the walls to settle
also. One engineer has suggested that
holes be bored In the ground about
the building and that they be kept
filled with water, so that the earth
may be restored to its natural condi
tion at the time when the whole dis
trict roundabout was not sealed up
' with pavements or covered with build
ings, and the rain could percolate
through the soil.
A remarkably interesting engineer
fng operation has lately been in prog
ress in Brooklyn, N. Y. A large brick
theater building, having walls 90 feet
high, has been lifted from its founda
tions, turned squarely round and
moved 300 feet to a new site. To turn
it, the exact center of the floor was
ascertained, and with this as a hub
series of small steel rollers were -laid
on a prepared platform', and then the
building, resting on steel beams, was
allowed to settle down on the rollers.
With jack-screws on two diagonally
opposite corners pushing in opposite
directions, the structure was then
turned as of on a pivot The moving
of brick buildings is common, but this
is said to be the largest and heaviest
structure that has ever been put bod
ily on new foundations.
A New Jersey woman recently
horsewhipped her husband's soul-mate,
and a judge applauded her for It. It
is noteworthy that everybody's sym
pathy inevitably goes with the woman
who administers the thrashing in such

feature of It is that as she holds the
arhip-hand. she ever lets the husband
set out of control at all.
As the Parisian doctors have In

Mr Byers and W. R:' Scalfe J re
turned "from a hunting trip pr 'sev
eral weeks in Canada. The goat.
a fine specimen, weighing more than
250 pounds, was captured in the
Stickline river, on the border line
between Alaska and British Columbia.
It is supposed to have been chased
into the water by a bear.
The death of the goat was directly
due to starvation.- He refused to
eat a bite while in captivity. On only
two or three occasions did the goat
drink any water, either. It was ex
pected, however, that after his being'
taken from the box in which he was
shipped to Pittsburg he would begin
eating. Instead, he shied at food
more than ever.
Mr. Byers says the goat-has a fine
pair of horns and is a magnificent
specimen in every way. When he
reaches the museum and is mounted
proudly on a rocky pedestal, it is ex
pected he will attract almost as much
attention as if he were alive in a zoo.

Aged Man Who Has Gathered 80,000
Reading Cal. John C. Hepler, super
intendent of Charles Evans' cemetery,
died here, aged 78 years. While, a well
known and highly respected citizen,
his chief claim to fame rested on the
fact that he was one of the best known
button collectors in the world. Hep
ler's collection numbers 80,000 but
tons; and there are no duplicates. He
began this peculiar fad over 40 years
The collection starts with the cheap,
humble shirt button, next the trousers
button and so on to the expensive but
tons on women's dresses, and finally,
through a long list, to the military but
tons of all the nations of the world.
Mr. Hepler knew the history of
many of the gems in his collection.
Some were secured through friends
visiting or living abroad, and among
his collection are buttons once worn

Winning a Wager.
In Glamorgan, Wales, the owner of
a large, fine horse, made a wager that
the animal would .follow .him up three
flights of stairs in a hotel. The stairs
were very steep and no one but the
owner of the horse thought he would
mount them. He did, however, and
won the wager by reaching the third
story. Then things changed.
The horse refused to descend. He
was whipped and coaxed, but not a
foot would he move.
He was left there for three days in
hopes that he would change his mind,
but as he still refused to do so they
had to enlarge one of the windows
and get 30 men together to lower him
down with ropes and pulleys. The
owner won $1 on his wager, but It
cost him $10 to get his horse down.
