PITTSBURGH, Feb. 22. -- Controversy between river and rail interests in Pittsburgh's industrial area was revived today xvith the report of LI. S. Army engineers recommending construction of a canal from the Ohio- River to Lake Erie. The Beaver to Struthers, Ohio, project has been named the "dead- end" canal by its opponents here who contend that it would deprive Western Pennsylvania of many industrial advantages and give to Youngstown the advantages of being centrally located between coal and iron fields. According to present plans the canal would start at Wheeler Creek, midway between Ashtabula and Fail-port, Ohio, and down the Grand river valley to Warren, Ohio, then into the: IVIahoning and Beaver rivers through Kiles. Girard and Stru- shers, Ohio, and New Castle to Beaver, Pennsylvania. Dr. James L. Greene, executive secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, and L. F. Rains, chairman or the Upper Ohio Valley Association, reserved comment until they could study the engineers report. j Opposition was reported in Wash- j ington, also. President Roosevelt in n letter to Congress, stated he h a d ' strong doubts about the advisability : of the project, particularly in its relation to the railroads. Ocean's Trough he had been a patient since-January 2 2 . . ' · ' . . Widely known in Connellsville where he had resided for the past 56 years, Mr. Kearns was affectionately known as "Petey" Kearns to ' his many friends. He suffered a stroke January 16 at his home and a'week later-was removed to the Hospital. ^ Mr. Kearns was born October J5, 1857, at Hagerstown, Md., corning to Connellsville when 26 years old. He was wed here to Sarah M. Martin and to this union were born 16 children, 14 who preceded him in death. His wife preceded him in death September 27, 1918. His hobbies were hunting and. fishing and it was said of him that he could catch fish where others couldn't. Years ago he caught mnny large fish in the Youghioghcny Paver here but later when the fish life was destroyed by contamination he nshed the upper Yough in and around Confluence. Shortly after coming to ConncHs- ville Mr. Kearns was employed at the coke ovens at Wheeler, later -being a lineman for;-the Bell Telephone Company. Here he learned the electrician's trade which he followed un- lil his retirement in 1914. He was a member of the Connellsville volunteer fire dep?rtment and was active for many years until his age prevented him from taking part. He was continued as an honorary member of that organization, however. He was s member of the Methodist Protestant Church. Surviving are two children. Homer R. Kearns of this city and Mrs. Lulu Bella Doolittle of Circ!?.ville, Ohio; two brothers. Richard Kearns of Connellsville and John Kearns of Coolspring, and two sisters, Mrs, Victor Stine of Pittsburgh and Mrs. Eva Metzger of Swissvale.

D. MY IjFRIEXD,, Dr. Karl Mcn- ningcrj of Topeka, author of the current; very popular book, Man Affains-l Himself, delivered himself, in the course of an address at the New York Academy of Medicine a "Six blind men sat by the gate of a great city as an elephant was led slowly past. Inspired by scientific curiosity of the highest degree, the six blind men rushed forward to "One of the blind men canjrht hold of the cicplmm's la;!. 'This,' he said, 'would appear to be a useless appendage. It mijrht ever be a source of. trouble. Better fake h off.' This blind man became a surgeon. "But the last of the sis men did not depend upon the sense of touch, .d Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. palpate the great beast and to determine the nature of his facing. "The first man's hands fell upon the elephant's tusks. 'Ah!' said he, 'This creature is a thing of bones; they even protrude through his skin.' Later on, years having past, this man became an orthopedist. Seized Trunk "At the same time the second blind man seised the elephant's trunk and identified its function. 'What a nose!' he exclaimed. 'Surely this is the roost important part of the animal.' Accordingly, he became a rhinologi'st. "The third man chanced upon the elephant's great Happing ear and j came to a similar conclusion; for him the car was everything, so he, in time, became an otologist. "The fourth blind man rested his hands on the huge chest and abdomen of the elephant. 'The contents of this barrel must be enormous,' he thought, 'and the pathological derangements infinite in number and variety.' Nothing would do but that he should become an internist. the keepers. It may be that he heard the elephant heaving a great sigh aa he trudged along. 'Where' is the creature going?' he asked. No one answered. 'Where did he come from? 1 he asked. No one knew. "Then this man fell into a deep reverie. What was in the elephant's mind, he wondered, in having left wherever he was and having como to this groat city? Why does he submit to the indignities oE our curiosity and the slavery of chains? Arid while he was wondering how to find out the answers to these questions the elephant was gone. Last Ts Psychiatrist "This man became a psychiatrist." To one who lives in a severely practical world, this might seem to glorify the work of the specialist in disorders of the psyche somewhat too extravagantly. After all, when you have bone trouble, the bone itself becomes pretty important, but, · then, Karl Mcnninjrer is a very bril- - liant man, made nearer in the image of God than most of the rest of us, and he may be more right than we think.
