It was said that since the recent debate between fundamentalists and modernists, the 'lecture tours of William Jennings Bryan and the action of the- state of Tennessee In attempting to bar evolution from th; public schools the general interest in biology and anthropology has increased. Frederick Melcher, editor of the Publishers' Weekly, who Is himself a member of a local school board, said that there are more science book.i available for school use than ever before.

"If the publishers had been hampered by arbitrary school board restriction, this would not be so," ne said. "I attended a convention in Chicago a short time a.sro and talked with a number of booksellers and publishers, and they all agreed that the field was better than ever. A dealer from Nashville told me that In his college bookstore they expected to sell as many books dealing with evolution as ever." tlon dock. Coming to Tahiti, the British bluejackets spent weeks In searching beach and valley and remote village and jungle, at last rounding up fourteen of the men of the Bounty. Whether there were others Is not known, but if there were, they could not be found.

With these men in irons, the frigate ransacked the, South seas for almost a year; but there was no clew whatever to the route Christian had taken, nor was there any marking of Pitcalrn Island on the charts of that time, even had the British captain known of the mutineers' presence there. So at last the frigate started for home, intending to round the Cape of Good Hope; but she crashed into the Australian Great Barrier Reef with disastrous results. Mystery Solved. Twenty-five years later, nothing whatever having been heard of Fletcher Christian or his followers during that time, a British merchantman by chance sighted Pitcalrn Island and her company was astounded to be hailed in good English by men who came out in a canoe. The mystery of the Bounty's men was solved! A pretty and well-arranged little village was found on the island, In which an orderly and decent existence went on.

The followers of Fletcher Christian had founded a new race in the remote South seas, which survives there today, and with one of whose members I talked in the Gambicr islands. The news of this strange colony interested England mightily, and instead of considering any, further punishment for the few who stll remained of the mutineers of the Bounty, assistance and encouragement was sent out to them so that Pltcairn island is today one of England's outposts of empire. COFFIN IS READY BUT MAN REVIVES HAVANA Juan Acosta Iznaga, a farmer living near Ciego de Avila, Camaguey province, Is the object of awe on the part of his neighbors. Men step back when he walks past them, and women make the sign of the cross. A.

few days ago Jean set out to ride In the midst of a heavy rain and electrical storm to the farm. A bolt of lightning killed his horse and knocked him unconscious. With the first rays of the morning sun farmers going to town found the apparently lifeless body. A rural carpenter was giving the finishing touches to a rude coffin when a doctor arrived. After a few minutes of medical attention, Juan opened his eyes, stood up and began talking.

The terrified farmers LONDON JEWELERS SHOW RARE PEARL COLLECTIONS LONDON The goldsmiths and silversmiths of London are showing a remarkable collection of pearls gathered from fisheries all over the world, says the London Morning Post. There are necklaces suited to every type of complexion. The white Australian pearls with their silvery sheen, very beautiful but cold In color, can be worn triumphantly by the pale blond. The warm magnolla-tlnted pearls from Ceylon, or the golden and brown pearls found In the depths of the Red sea are ideal for darker women, as are the rare black pearls discovered only In the Gulf of Mexico by pearl fishers searching for black mother-of-pearl. The fashionable length for a necklace is from eighteen to twenty Inches, but some are arranged to encircle the throat and then hang low In front, held In place by a diamond clasp at the back of the neck.

Long ribbons of seed pearls threaded in intricate patterns combined with onyx beads or tiny diamond links, and sometimes carrying a pendant, are attractive novelties. For those who can not afford a complete necklace the fine platinum chains towhich a pearl can be added at will have been designed. FAKE DOCTOR IS JAILED FOR CALLING ON PATIENTS NEW YORK With the sentencing by Magistrate Oberwager In the Essex Market court of Samuel Miller, 28 years old, of 77 East Third street, to a six months' term In the workhouse on a disorderly conduct charge, police and officials of the Lying-in hospital, Seventeenth strept and Second avenue, believe visits to the homes of married womn in the neighborhood by an annoying stranger have ceased. Several times In the last two weeks complaints have reached hospital officials to the effect that a man representing himself as a physician from the hospital called at the homes of women who recently were patients to make "physical examinations." When Miller Is alleged to have railed at the home of Mrs. Behar of 148 Orchard street, for the announced purpose of "examining" Mrs.

Behar, who recently gave birth to a child at the hospital, Mr, Behar's suspicions were aroused. He called a policeman and Miller was arrested. In court hospital officials testified that Miller worked at the hospital as a porter about three weeks ago and that some of the hospital records disappeared when he was discharged, TRACES OF CAVE MAN ARE FOUND JN PALESTINE JERUSALEM Great interest has been aroused in archeological circles by the news of a discovery by students of tbe British school of archeology who are -excavating a cave near Tiberias. In the cave was evidence of Its occupation by palaeolithic man of the Au-rlgnacian type through a long period and illustrating the continuous development of the art of flint-working from late Mousterian to early neolithic times. The evidence iws to show that man in Palestine is far older than had previously been supposed.

M. T. station platform under a train by the rush hour crowd, is expected to recover, it was said at Bellevue hospital. He has a compound fracture of the right leg, a fractured skull, fractured left leg and possible Internal injuries. For twenty minutes his body was wedged between the rails and the forward truck of the second car, the first car having passed over him.

Trainmen and firemen released him while the police quieted the crowd which Jammed the platform. Jeuch was still conscious when taken to the hospital. He was waiting for a northbound train when the' surging crowd pushed him into the path of an oncoming express. Motorman Joseph Wenns stopped his trait) so abruptly that the passengers we're shaken up, but was unable to prevent it from striking Jeuch. A projection in the forward truck caught In the man's clothes and dragged him several feet.

Then his clothing tore free and he fell into the slot between the tracks. Traffic was tied up about half an hour. Two women fainted and were attended by physicians In the crowd. JUDGE ASKS WIFE BEATER TO FIGHT MAN HE PICKS NEW YORK Branding a man who would beat his wife as a coward, Magistrate Louis A.

Glynn uttered no word in ac ceptance or refusal, and the magistrate scornfully added: "I don't believe such cowards as you ever fight with man." Detective John Devine, the warrant: officer of the Fifth district court, a few hoitis before had roused Glynn out of bed In hi home on the complaint of Glynn's wife. Mrs. Glynn explained to the magistrate that she had been seeking a separation from her husband In the Domestic Relations court because of his conduct and that he had assaulted her. "Glynn, I want you to keep away from Mrs. Glynn," the magistrate said In paroling the husband for one year.

WORKERS TALK STRIKE WHEN'WAGES ARE UNPAID RIO DE JANEIRO, July li. (P) The municipality faced trouble early this month when 6,000 employes threatened to strike on account of unpaid wages. A committee recently was appointed to talk with the mayor, who promised to Improve conditions. He later arrested the ringleaders of tha movement, and placed Federal troops on guard at the city hall to stop trouble. The office of the treasury stated that the city pay-roll was unpaid for April and May.

the wages due certain departments totaling $1,000,000. The treasurer's office unofficially says that this money was used to pay obligations due on foreign and domestic debts. The city treanurer has started to liquidate unpaid salaries, the city promising to haw the payments completed nt an early date. The men accepted the promise and returned to work. TOURISTS LIKE TO PAY HEAD TAX IN SPAIN MADRID Americans often get an exaggerated idea, of the manner in which European countries are reported to tax tourists, when the amount an 1 purpose of the tax Is not mentioned.

If a Spaniard or any foreigner to America, the American government taxes him $8, but when the American tourist goes to Spain the sojourn tax can be as low as 23 cents and the proceeds are devoted to charity. Spain is one of the countries of Europe where tourists agree it la a treat to pay the tax, for there is spread before him in exchange for his quarter the glories of Seville, Toledo, Granada, Malaga, Madrid and Valencia, than which no finer holiday haunts are known. WAGES HERE HIGHER THAN IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES LONDON Miners have the largest families in England and Wales, according to vital statistics just issued.

The average number of children to each father or mother is 1.27, No Payment Down Descendants of England's "Pious Outlaw" Found in South Sea Group. BOSTON The lonely isle of Plt-oalrn, Its volcanic peaks rising somberly out of a blue semltroplc sea, its name forever associated with one of the most extraordinary mutinies in the long archives of the sea, lies several hundred miles in a general southeasterly direction from the Gambler group of Islands, which is in latitude 23 south and longitude 110 west. 1 The man who led the strange rebellion was Fletcher Christian, master's mate of the British armed merchant ship Bounty; and his name has been perpetuated among his descendants In several of the fair islands of eastern Polynesia, more particularly In the Gamblers, the nearest large group to Pitcalrn. And so it was not altogether surprising, when the writer came upon a white man as he strolled about the Island of Marina Reva, not long ago, to find that the man' bore the name of William Christian.

He said that he was a direct descendant of Fletcher Christian, and that, indeed, all his male ancestors were Englishmen who had come out to Pit-cairn island and continued the pleasant colony which the master's mate of the Bounty had founded there a century and a half ago. Today an occasional trading schooner from the Society Islands traverses the hundreds of miles of lonely sea to Pitcalrn, making her stops through the Paumotus and the Gamblers, and Decle Island, which lies midway between Manga Reva and Pitcalrn; and so the progeny of Fletcher Christian may be met with in all these islands, even In Tahiti and in the Cook group. Wholly white was this man who called himself William Christian, although there was in his veins the blood of the Taliitian woman who, in 1787, had gone to Pitcalrn with the deserters of the Bounty, the they sought to place themselves beyond reach of the long arm of England. What Led to the Mutiny. Much has been written of the Bounty affair, and, as usual, little of It bears any close relation to the facts 'as they reveal themselves to one who finds himself upon the actual scene of the strange adventure and in touch with those to whom the story has come down by word of mouth.

The world's impression is that the lubel-lion, which resulted from the cruelty of a martinet officer, was a sanguinary and terrifying affair, one to be recalled with a shudder, like the doings of Morgan in the Caribbean. In point of fact, scarcely even a blow was struck as Christian's followers took over the English merchantman; and each man of them conducted himself quite as a British sailor traditionally conducts himself. The desire was simply to be rid of the tyrant supplemented by the charm of the place, Tahiti. No doubt whatever exists that the appeal of this fairyland of the South seas was a potent factor In the resistance of the Bounty's men; but, a3 English seamen, they never would have yielded to that appeal, except under the worst of treatment. The British government sent the Bounty to the South seas, in response to the demands of British merchants and the English people to more of those Pacific islands of which Cook and others had told Bligh had been one of Cook's officers; and he was as familiar with Tahiti as any one at that time.

His vessel had the usual hard and. tiresome voyage around Cape Horn; and one easily understands the joy of his men at com ing upon such a place as Tahiti, where the natives never were hostile to the white man, where suclr-fruit grew as they had never seen, and where every prospect was lovelier than a dream. Bounty Stays 5 Months. Here Vhe Bounty remained five months, and no man ever lived five months in Tahiti but to love it. And so the men of the Bounty regarded the preparations for departure and more months of hardship under the tyrannous Bligh without enthusiasm.

However, departure was taken, and the previous regime restored. The men of the Bounty were, not long in rebelling; and one morning Fletcher Christian and a few others, entered the commander's cabin and brought him forth. Seventeen other officers and petty officers were likewise secured. There was no rough handling of any one and the worst affronts Bligh were a few caustic comments from those he had abused. Fletcher Christian explained very simply to the commander that the men of the Bounty proposed to take her back to Tahiti; and that resistance by the captured officers would only result disastrously for them.

Thereupon Bligh and his men were put into the largest of the ship's boats, which was stocked with every necessary thing, including plenty of food, canvas, cordage, navigation instruments and weapons. The boat was able, and the location was in the neighborhood of the aforesaid Gambler group; so that the deposed officers were in little or no danger. An Island Refute. Christian, who has been called the "most upright and pious outlaw that ever braved the gallows," immediately headed toward the society gtoup, while his men sent over the sea a ringing "Hurrah for Tahiti." But Christian well knew how prompt and effective would be England's action whenever the mutiny of the Bounty might be heard of at home. So he refused to Yield to the desire of the majority of his followers to remain at Tahiti; and, after the desertion of a score who were determined to remain, the Bounty set forth to find Pitcalrn, an island which had been sighted on the way from England, and whose remoteness the master's mate accurately judged would afford indefinite asylum to the refugees.

There was no record of Its ever having been visited by any one. and It was entirely uninhabited. After months of wandering about with very little knowledt-e of his whereabouts at any time, Christian found the Island. In the meantime It is interesting to follow the fate of the men in the open boat. They had landed the very next day on an island whose natives were Immediately friendly.

But for some reason, not improbably brusque treatment by Bligh, tnelr attitude soon altered, and they drove the Englishmen to their boat and the open sea. Whereupon Bligh, whose determination, at any rate, was of the traditional bulldog quality, resolved upon the mad undertaking of traversing the entire Pacific in the ship's boat, and avoiding any more Islands. It is a tribute to the hardihood of the seafarers of those days that this feat was accomplished. The small boat reached Timor safely, although the distance was 4,000 miles; From Timor they found passage to Batavia and thence to England. Astounding as such an achievement seems, every detail of it is a matter of authentic record.

In act Bllgh's new was the first England knew of the mutiny of the Bounty. (hrlntlan's Happy T'llage. As. Fletcher Christian had correctly forseen. action was Immediate.

This Is the Interrogation which looms head and shoulders above the myriad question-marks with which the far East 1s sprinkled at present. Events of the next few months should tell the story. If any one man is the center of this aHalr from a Chinese point of view, it Is Marshal Chan? Tso-lln, war lord of Mukden.

"Whatever figure-head may be shoved to the fore, Marshal Chang is the "man behind." Japan's hand In affairs is rather difficult to trace, but responsibility for whatever comes to pass must of necessity rest upon the Japanese minister in Pekln, Yoshizawa. He is a kindly and perhaps not a particularly strong man, but an able diplomat, Obtained Beroffnitian for Ruftsia.

On th face of It, the Russians have been the agres-sor in bringing matters to a climax; 1 they declare that they have In reality been victims thus far, however. The Russians claim grievances on two counts.

They assert that the Japanese are getting an even firmer grip on Marshal Chang and are influencing him to favor Japanese interests as opposed to Russian ones. More specifically, they object to the building concessions given the South Manchurlan Railway Company (Japanese owned) for the final section of the Bruplngkai-Taonanfu-Tsitsihar railway, which will cut the Chinese East-em railway (jointly controlled by Russia and China) some 200 miles west of Harbin and greatly affect the C.
