If his greed of possession had borne
any sort of relation to his gTeed of dis
covery, Daniel Boone might have died
the greatest land owner in .America,
When he died, in 1825, in the settlement
of Charette, which he had established on
the Missouri river a little way above its
mouth, he owried not land enough to bury
The grave waa provided by Ills thrifty
and prosperous son-in-law, Flanders
Callaway, with whom the old pioneer
passed his declining years, the ruling
passion for wandering In the woods re
maining with him to the end. Testimony
of his descendants, published in the Re
public, does not encourage the doubt that
this was the grave that was opened when
Kentucky reclaimed his bones in 1845 to
build a monument over them in the burial
ground of its state capital.
Kentucky owed him this tribute. He
waa the first white man to penetrate and
explore the forests of the "dark and
bloody ground" the huntlnggrounds on
which the Indians from the north of the
Ohio fought so fiercely with those Jn east
Tennessee and Mississippi that none of
them could stay there in peace. There
are conflicting stories to explain why
Boone died landless. One of them is that
he sold his great granta of land in Ken
tucky for scrip that proved to be worth
less. Another adds that he held much
of the lanc until Kentucky , became a
atate, and then it was found he had
neglected precautions necessary to make
hla title good. At any rate, he quit Ken
tucky aa landless as he" entered it, and
came to Missouri eight years before the
country west of the Mississippi passed
into American possession.
The Spanish governor here offered him
a -grant of 10,000 acres, but he scorned
the trip to New Orleans that was neces
sary to get the grant confirmed by the
Spanish governor there. Later congress
voted him a grant of 1,000 acres, but that
also slipped through his hands.
Boone waa negligent in looking after his
landed possessions because he was more i
intent upon exploration than upon occupation.-
He must have felt also that land
could be had anywhere in these parte for
the aaklng. It was fortunate for lioonoJ
that Flanders Callaway, who had rescued
a daughter of Boone from the Indians in
Kentucky before he married her, was a
better man of business and provided well
for the veteran wanderer of the woods.
Missouri took good care of Boone. -St.
CONCERNING CLERICAL HEALING
. -u ivw vi isc r.mraanilf I
Ctanrch Movement and What
At present the catchword of the Emman
uel movement is "functional dlsense." We
are told repeatedly that the clerical heal
ers will have nothing to do with any suf
ferer from organic disease, and they uss
their medically trained allies to separate
the functional sheep from the organic
gcats, the latter being thiust back into the
outer darkness of legitimate medical prac
tice. But what do these people mean by
"furevtknal nervous disorders?" Do they
really believe that there are two distinct
kinds of disease functional and .organic?
If they do not know, their medical advisers
hOuld tell them that every day we are
shifting so-called functional diseases Into
the class of organic diseases.
Will these clerical healers abandon a
functional disease to the medical healers
when it is discovered to be dependent upon
an organic lesion of brain, aplnal cord, or
sympathetic nervous system, or will they
simply deny Its organic basis and con
tinue to treat it? And once they find
themselves treating one disease called or
ganic, why not otherr why not all? Every
physician knows that "cheerfulness, hope,
courage and religious faith and prayer,"
which constitute the pharmacopaela of the
New York School of Medical Healing, are
Just as necessary in the treatment of
tuberculosis as In that of constipation, and
Indeed that they are often distinctly cura
tive in various organic diseases.
It the clergy have a divine commission
to heal the sick they are rerreant to their
trust and cruel to the suffering to deprive
any of the benefit of their healing words,
and it will not be lung before they recog
nise that fact and act accordingly. That
the law forbids them to practice medicine

LONDON, Nov. 21. - (Special.) Now
that the Times Book club war is defnltely
settled to nobody's satisfaction in par
ticularmany book producers are begin
ning to Spend monty on advertising their
wares. The latest evidence of this fact
Is a huge poster of a book called "John
Silence." Advertising the novel by means
of the poster is a new departure in Eng
land, and the fact that one publisher has
begun it will have a stimulating effect
on the others. It may not be altogether
correct to describe the "postering" of
novels as an altogether new departure,
for Fisher Unwln once employed Aubrey
Beardsley in this capacity nA Hetne
mann ordered a poster from Nicholson,
but it was a long time ago, and, appar
ently, the attempt in those days was not
However, the revival has begun, and
several London publishers are thinking
out striking ideas with which . to hyp
notize the public who have money to
spend on books.
The "John Silence" poster simply por
trays a man standing at a window look
ing out Into the night. His position Is
somewhat curious, as he Is looking away
from the audience, as it were, and has
his back turned to the public. The poster
is said to have sold a good many copies
of the book. Methuens are contemplating
a poster for the book, "The Great Miss
Driver," and one critic predicts that when
the placard appears, London coachmen
thinking from the tttle that the work
concerns them will Invest in a book
which does not appeal at all to horse
fanciers in particular.
Book Sellers Dissatisfied.
Concerning the great "book club war,"
Inquiry among booksellers reveals the
fact that they are anything but satisfied
at the outcome of the struggle. Nor
does it seem possible to deny that they
have a very, real grievance remaining.
Their position Is this: The publishers
have won a victory over the Times in
the matter of net books, but the cuse of
the 6-shllllng or $1.60 novel is still going
hard against the bookseller. There Is
nothing to prevent the Times Book club,
after three months, from the publica
tion of a novel, putting its copies into
the 4-cent box, if it wishes to do so. This
hits the bookseller, small, large or medium-sized,
for the $1.50 novel Is one of
his great mainstays, in spite of all that
is said about people not buying books.
They do buy high-priced novels, and, of
course, they will not pay the bookseller
$1.10, which Is the English cash price
for a $1.60 book, if by waiting a little
they can purchase from the T!me3 at,
say, 30 cents or thereabouts. The book
sellers complain that the publishers have
been seduced by the Book club's enticing
promise of a big "first order" for new
works into agreeing to a settlement
which is unjust to the book-Belling com
munity. There Is a somewhat peculiar "Inside his
tory" of the conclusion of this "Times"
book war which throws a slightly lurid light
on British diplomacy. It will be recalled
that it was announced to the world som
time ago that C. Arthur Pearson had bought
"The Times." ThlB was considered one of
the greatest Journalistic ooups on record,
and Pearson was congratulated on his
magnificent luck In acquiring the "Thun
derer." It might be said Jn passing, that,
through some unexplalnable cause, the
London "Times" still yields an enormous
Influence, despite Its fossilized condition and
Its prohibitive cost of 6 cents per copy.
Well, among the people most unctuous in
their congratulations to Pearson was his
great rival "Trie Daily Mall." with Lord
Northcllffe otherwise Alfred Harmsworth
among the principal wreath-throwers. As
soon as the first excitement Is over, how
ever, Northcllffe himself bows to the public
as the actual owner of "The Times," and
C. A. P. is supposed to retire some distance
Into the rear and sit down.
New Times' Enterprise.
As soon as Lord NorthclJffe found himself
fully installed in "The Times" he held a
conference with one of the largest Ameri
can booksellers Brentanos, to be exact
whose diplomacy brought the book war to
an end, und restored to "The Tlmes' the
large amount of publishers' advertisements
which had been lost owing to the wasteful
struggle. And now the "little bird who
sits up aloft," and occupies his time in
rumor-catching, has It that Brentano and
Lord Northcllffe are hatching a big enter
prise that will soon be launched in connec
tion with "The Times" and the book pub
lishers in America.
The "Academy," a Journal of many vicis
situdes. Is again' In new hands." At least
it now appears to be owned by Lord Al
fred Douglas, Instead of being merely
edited by him. It Is said that Sir Charles
Tennant. its laat proprietor? has made a
present of the paper to Lord Alfred, say
ing: "Here, take the 'Academy,' and here
Is some capital on which to run it." The
"Academy" has seldom paid its way, and
as a property It Is somewhat of a luxury.
It Is to be anticipated that the assistant
editor, who Is Mr. W. H. Crosland of "Un
speakable Scot." "Lovely Woman," and
other fame, will have a still more free
hand now. He haa already succeeded in
transforming the character of the paper
considerably, for at first under Lord Al
fred Douglas' sole editorship It had a
decidedly ecclesiastical flavor; and, as has
been remarked. Mr. Crosland wears the
blretta with singular Ill-ease.
Man f Originality.
Whatever may be said of Crosland, there
Is no doubt of his originality. He is a
man of remarkable personality, being "a
great big fellow," with an Insatiable de
sire for the financial rewards of literature,
rather than the glory of which Is supposed
to follow the pursuit of letters. In a re
cent interview "with himself" In one of
the magaslnea, the following passage oc
curred: " 'And now, Mr. Crosland,' said the In
terviewer, with great deference, and evi
dent awe at my literary reputation, 'will
you tell me whom you consider your best
" 'The money lenders' was my prompt
L Crosland is a virile writer, with a mag
nificent hatred of hla enemies. His books
hsve made him hosts of haters In return
a situation in which he positively glories.
The latest literary story here may per
haps be considered to convey a useful
warning to Journalists. Frank Harris, a
well known author-editor, who is at pres
ent conducting a social weekly, was lunch
ing with the editor of a great halfpenny
morning Journal, and. surprised to find
that this editor had not read any of hla
books, promised to send him a volume of
his short stories which are very good and
some years ago made quite a hit. The
volume, entitled "Elder Conklln," was
duly sent to the editor's office, but un
happily went astray Into a pile of books
for reviews. One of the halfpenny daily's

We see in us swift and erratic flight at the
close of summer days In the north. Why
they call It a bat In North Carolina I don't
know, but that Is the name these birds
go by long-winged bats and bull bats. "
"I believe that they have at last suc
ceeded In convincing the legislature of that
state that this bird is one of the greatest
destroyers of Insect pests that files and
that the indiscriminate killing of It should
no longer be permitted and that the sport
of bat shooting Is now Illegal In North
Carolina. When I was there, however, It
was popular and had been for time out of
mind. , '
"Here In the north there never has been
a time when we would not have held In
questionable esteem the man who would
shoot these birds In wantonness, and
thought still less of him If we knew hu
was going to eat them, but even a northern
man would have thought better of It all
if he had ever gone south and tried It once
himself. I never knew a northerner at
home who had the heart to shot a night
hawk, but I have known more than one of
them In the south to become enthusiastic
shooters of bats.
"Bat shooting was in season from the
time the birds began flocking to the south
in the fall from their summering and nest
ing in the north. As they were shot only
on the wing and whoever saw onu of them
anywhere else to be siiot at? and as their
constant and sudden turning, twlsi.ru,
doubling and zigzagging In the air required
great skill to make a creditable bag, the
sport was much more exciting than field or
cover shooting. A man who could st'lect
his bat and wing It as It darted about In
Its erratic flight was well fitted to be the

In North Carolina they come in just the

A Deserved Tribute.
Sooner than has been the lot of most

setts, New England and the nation, says
the Boston Herald, the memory of this
man has taken the Imperishable form of
stone and bronze, art being wedded to the
service of civic adornment and hero wor

was a power as an orator 1n this Irish
American, a thoroughness as a legislator,
state and national, a breadth of view aa a
defender of men of every race and all
creeds, a loyalty as a friend, a steadfast
ness of conviction aa a partisan of the best
type, which made him a marked man while
lie lived and as fine a representative of the
Celtic strain of Americanism as the coun
try has yet seen In publlo life. When he
fought he fought face to the foe and aa a'
man of honor. When some would con
found liberty with license he stood for lib
erty under law. When placed where he
might have become rich, and yet not trans
gress the current code of politics or busi
ness, he chose to remain poor and beyond
reproach of lils own conscience.
Like his friend and fellow exile front
Erin, Boyle O'llcllly, he hastemd materi
ally the huppy blending of races and re
ligions that New England has seen in re
cent years, and he left a personal record
and words of wisdom pertaining to funda
mental American ideas which will maki
clear the path of generations that follow.
