HEROIC DEATH OF A MISSIONARY
.Andrew Carnegie Notifies the Re
cipients of 'One of Ills Libraries
thnt lie Doesn't Think Well
of Ills Itnrn-nln.
TONDON, Nov. 4. A press view lias
been given of the heroic size "Last
Supper," painted by Father Ephrem
Hlckey, a monk of The Friary, Forest
Gate. The picture, which lias been
finished after eighteen months' work,
measures'&Mi feet by 17 feet, and Is des
tined for the refectory of the Franciscan
Monastery at Ohllworth, near Guilford.
In the general' compoKltion, Father
Hlckey has followed the lines of a "Last
Supper"' by. Domehlco Ghlrlanilajo In the
church of Ognl Santl, belonging to the
Franciscan order In Florence, but all of
the various figures In the palming were
posed for by residents in tho nelgtibor
liood of the Friary, among whoTii were a
number of well known Londoners.
Father lliekey is not unknown to the
art world, having had a picture accepted
by the Academy In l'.'OT. Ills "Last
fiupper" Is an exercise In daringly bright,
jet perfectly harmonious color, and, Is
admirably adapted to the purpose of
decorating a large room andto suffer
the effects of time without becoming
Mluloaarr Dies Heroically.
The details of the deuth of Elder
Tavls, an American Seventh-Uay Ad
ventlst missionary, reported to' have been
poisoned by the natives on the Urailllan
frontier, have been received here, and,
according to them, the missionary died
a natural death after a heroic struggle
The truth of the' fate of the missionary
was learned by an expedition1 dispatched
for that purpose by G. Dluklago, a gold
prospector. The party reports that
Elder Davis was stricken with fever
during the course of a difficult Journey
which be had undertaken through the
tilnterland. The party brought back the
deceased's belongings, including a diary
which he had kept until he was too weak
to 'lold the pen any longer. The diary
tellF. a thrilling and pathetic story. Ac
cording to the diary, his missionary tour
began under the most favorable auspices,
the Indians receiving him with such cor
diality that he soon succeeded in found
ing three mission settlements.
In the midst of his success, he was
trlcken with fever. The last entry In
the diary was dated Juno 23, and the
iied July 3. Evidently realizing that the
end was approaching. Mr. Davis on June
3, dictated to a companion words to the
effect that his death was due to fever,
ana that there was no shadow or trace of
"k'enalma" or "paiman" work during his
whole Journey, thus clearing the natives
of all suspicion of having brought on his
death. , ' -' '.- v.
I.nlrd of Sklbo Dlssntlsfled.
Judging from . a letter which Miss
Slurry, the librarian -of ' the new Car
negie library at Georgetown, Demerara,
received frbmTOs secretary,- the donor of
the building Is' iot satisfied that he has
gotten $3,000 worth of satisfaction from
The letter sent from Sktbo Castlo reads
as follows: "Yours of July 13 received
with 'fotografs' of the library, for which
Mr. Carnegie Is obliged. Will you kindly
send plans showing the aocomtnodatlon?
The 'blldlng.' as It appears from the 'fo
tografs,' does not appear much of a re
turn for $35,000."
Immediately on receipt of the letter, a
meeting of the library committee was
hold, and It was decided to forward to
Mr. Carnegie a detailed statement show
ing how tho money was spent.' In sup
plying the committee with this, L. P.
1 lodge, who supervised the building oper
ations . on behalf of the government,
dated that the building was the cheapest
two-story fireproof affair of any struc
tural pretensions In Georgetown.
The building is not very Imposing ex
terlorally, but it is well built and ade
quately equipped. The Institution Is
serving the purpose for which It was
established, and Is being generously pat
ronized by tho people of Georgetown.
That the age of man is no less than
1.000,000 years Is the conclusion that Dr.
W. Allen Sturge, M. V. O., who Is presi
dent of the Prehistoric Society of East
Anglta, concludes from studies - based
largely on the Neolithic flint Instru
ments found in North West Suffolk. He
says: "Neolithic man goes back to some
period between 200.000 and 300,000 years,
and It would seem that we have not even
then reached the beginning of the period.
' li if t man was flourishing from. 1,000,000
years to about 700.000 years ago. Neither
figure Is a limit; the later figure is prob
ably nearer a limit than the earlier. Be
tween the end of the Drift and the begin
ning of the Neolithic we have the great
'Cave' periods, which would thus seem
to have occupied anything from 214,000 to
4X.G(0 years. Behind Drift man are vast
ages of which we are only beginning to
get the first glimpses. But it now seems
evident that man was already on earth
In early Pliocene timts, and we must not
bo surprised If proofs are. ultimately
brought forward that genus homo goes
bay-' even further thun that. It has be
i fio almost a shibboleth that Irian first
appeared In I'leisocene times, but I af
firm that It Is no more lhn shibboleth."
Dr. St urges has found flint Instrument
which ha, contends were scratched by
glacial action. That a glacial period has
occurred since human Instruments of
Neolithic types were made Is against all
views of glacial geology. Since Neolithic
man came to Britain, the doctor holds,
there has been an fee age, not continuous,
but divided into s'uftperlods of glaclatlon.

BERLIN, Nov. 4.-Emperor William
has selected as the new commander of
tho imperial yacht HohcnzoHern Captain
J. Kraft, thereby going' outside of the
ranks of the nobility for one of the
most immediate members of his official
This choice has been widely welcomed
since the privileged position of the aris

commands In tho army la keenly felt by
many citlzer.s and has been the subject
of long agitation.
Captain Kraft Is not only highly re
garded In naval circles but Is one of
the most Bklllful of Germany's amateur
yachtsmen, having often been selected
to steer yachts of the emperor and mem
bers of his family at the annual yacht

Old Controversy Reopened.
The controversy between the surgeons
at the time of the death of the Emperor
Frederick, father of the present em
peror, . has Just been reopened by the
publication of the private letters of Ernst
von Eergmann, one of the surgeons who
attended at his majesty's deathbed.
Although there Is little new that Is
told In the correspondence, somo curious
lights are thrown on. the actions of the
doctors engaged, some of which seem to
have been occasioned by political con
siderations. Sir Morell Mackenzie, whose procedure
has been the subject of constant attack
on all sides, was. It Is said, under the
wrongful impression that a member of
the house of Hohenzollern could not as
cend the throne If he were; suffering from
a mortal disease, and on this account the
famous English surgeon Is stated to have
denied the fact that his patient was suf
fering from cancer. The same Idea was
also possessed by Bismarck until It was
shown conclusively that It was not ac
cording to the constitution.
There is a rule In reference, to the
reigning family, however, , which makes
necessary the holding of a post-mortem
examination "to discover "the . cause of
death. The letters of ' Ernst ,' yen Borg
