Some of these have been of a character to induce the belief that the lake Is going dry. Others have stated ttoat a power famine threatens . the mills using water from the lake. These reports have been discussed with animation by returning summer tourists who have seen the lake, who have advanced various conjectures as to the cause of the trouble. Some think the mills are taking more water than ever before, particularly the big cotton mills at Manchester and Lowell. Others think the springs that feed the lake are drying up. Some profess to believe the lake has sprung a leak In Its bottom and the water Is all running oif, nooody knows where. Conditions at the lake, by' reason of the low water, have been variously described. Expanses of flats, power boats high and dry, cottage. maroonea far from the water's edge, where once the limi id lake, laved their foundations; troubles in navigation, and threatened demoralization of the summer resort business have been pictured. As is ueuul in the case of a natural phenomenon In which there is general Women, Read The Advts In today's Globe. Read them in the Daily Globe. Save money by patronizing Globe advertisers. trclled for use in manufacturing. The low state of the lake Is not due to the amount of water used by the mills ou the riverg below. It is not due to the drying up of springs. It has not adversely affected the summer resort business. It is not due to any mysterious cause, but to a very commonplace one, namely, lack of rain. Conditions on the Lake. A half-day's cruise by powerboat from the Weirs shows the exact condition of the lake. Its water Is just as pure and sparkling as ever, though three leet lower than usual. This has exposed considerable stretches of low-lying shore, but these shores are all so clean and piGturesque that there is nothing offensive about them. The chief Inconvenience caused by the low level of the lake Is the bringing out of water, or near the surface, rocks hitherto well covered. This lias cauwd woe to the amateur pilot, and has Increased the liability of accident to power boats from navigating the many rocky channels about the shores or among the lake's 274 Islands. Another cause of inconvenience has : been the shallowing of channels to pub- lie and private docks. The captains of the-.steamers that ply on the lake find I their labors and responsibilities in-i creased. It Is. more difficult to make ' their landing than formerly. Still, there is no public landing on the lake that cannot be reached. Private landings in some cases are cut off, and temporary moorings have to be found for boats. This condition Is worse at the west end of the lake and along Moultonboro and Melvln bays than elsewhere. At the east end of the lake, around-AVolfboro, pnd along shore to Alton bay, tilings are not so bad, as the shore Is more bold, with fewer sunken rocks. As a result of a half-day's inspection of the lake the Investigator is Impressed mainly with the difficulties that beset powerboat men in navigating. They have had to learn their business as pilots all over. Bevond this the low water does rot appear to have affected anybody seriously. One cannot find a single instance in which it has checked the summer resort business. The beauty of the lake as a whole is unimpaired, and the glory of Its mountain scenery undiminished.

CARTER'S LITTLE UVER PILLS 'any but farm! v ce So ow "JIM Carters The peculiar formation of the land around the lake turns In other directions large quantities of water falling properly within Its geographical vicinage. It gets none of the water that falls among t he White mountains, immediately northeastward of it, as two small ranges intervene. The lake gets the water from the south and west sides of these, the Ossipee and Sandwich ranges, but that Is all. The great volume from the larger mountain watershed goes down the Androscoggin and Saco rivers on the east, and the Pemi-gewasset on the west The latter river conies into the Merrimac about 15 miles below the lake. . Being thus left in a Docket, lake Win- nipesaukee must have a normal rainfall every year to maintain Its level. For I seven wears past the rainfall in New Hampshire has not been normal. The lake, therefore, has suffered more than any other in the state, by reason of its small watershed. The whole explanation of Its present condition lies in this fact.

At the estate on Moultonboro neck of Herbert Du-maresq of Boston are the most imposing- hnithAiiao nnrl nier on the lake. The rler Is of cobble and concrete, with a house on the pier neaa, wnere a large launch lies afloat under cover and another on the bank, with arches to admit two boats. The water is new less than three feet deep at the pier head, and the channel to the shore boathouse Is so shallow a rowboat can scarcely be navigated in It. At Congressman Samuel L. Power s place in Meredith on the west shore of the lake above Weirs a considerable chain of rocks is exposed, while ap-iv-oach to the wharf of the next estate, owned by William J. Follett of Newton, calls for exnet knowledge of the location of various submerged bowlders. fhe one spot that attracts more attention to the condition of the lake than any other is the famous Kndicott rock at the Weirs. This historic stone marked by the engineers of Gov Kndicott In 166? when on an exploring and surveying expedition stands beside the Weirs, channel Into Long bay. Ordinarily the water wathet the fofmdation of the granite structure In which the rock is preserved. Now a lonrr reef of bowlders extends lakeward from the rock parallel with the channel. The rock, being in sight of the railroad, serves as a landmark by which hundreds of travelers daily take a hasty measure of the lake's level. Why the Lake is Low. Inquiry at the proper sources of Information shows specifically why lake Wlnnlpesaukee Is low, while other lakes in New Hampshire are but little below i their usual summer tevei. ! Lake Wlnnlpesaukee differs from any other lake in isew cngianu in n sources of supply. Not more than three streams run Into It. The area of the lake is 7114 square miles, and it has a contributing watershed of only five times its area, or about 350 square miles, the smallest, relaUvely, of any New England lake. Seven Dry Years. The rainfall at lake Wlnnlpesaukee for the past 60 years has been 2120.4 Inches. This is an average of 42.4 inches a year. In no year since 1902 has the rainfall total precipitation of rain and snow reached that figure. In 1902 there was a heavy fall, reach-in 51.77 Inches; but in 1903 the total was 41.55, in 1904 it fell to 39.02, in 1905 it was but 38.38, in 1906 37.61, In 1907 40.77, in 1908 but 32.09 and in 1909 37.14. With but one exception 1894, which has but 31.46 inches -1908 was the dryest year at the lake In the 60 in which precipitation records have been kept there, while ,1909 was not much better. The lake not having received Its normal supply of 'water In those years, its present condition was to be expected. The average rainfall at the lake for seven years, to 1910, has been but 38.36 inches a year, or an average of 6.02 inchA below normal for each year, up to 1910, while this year It was, to Aug 18, 4.25 below normal. For the seven years to the beginning of 1910 Ui- lake's total shortage of water was 42.14 inches, and while averaged figures cannot be employed with precision, they are sufficiently reliable to show why the gage at Lake-port showed the lake on that date to be 35 inches below the level main tained as full lake, leaving a re large they represent but a fraction of the water used for power at Lowell, where nearly as many gallons of water pass over the dam in an hour as pass out of the lake In 24 hours. Lowell uses for power, for example, 6416 cubic feet of water a second, equal to 178,232,000 gallons an hour, or 1,732,320,000 gallons every day of 10 working hours. With Lowell using nearly 10 times as much water as passes out of the lake, it is evident she does not lean very heavily jjn the Winnipesaukee supply, and must secure a heavy flow elsewhere. This flow comes from the Merrimac, Nashua. Contoocook and Peml-gewasset rivers. Lowell has the benefit of a drainage basin of 4085 square miles. The streams in this basin are not much below their usual pitch in a dry summer. There is nothing in their condition to alarm the Proprietors of the Locks and Canals at Lowell. The streams respond readily to rains, and a normal autumn rainfall would keep them full. Above Lowell, Manchester is the largest user of water power on the Merrimac. It uses 3600 cubic feet a second or 945.000.000 gallons in a day of 10 hours', which is more than five times as much as the flow of lane v innipe.saukee for 24 hours. The in New York and at the actors' fund fair. Mr Habart is the author of "Dlnkelsplel's Christmas," probably the most successful sketch produced In vaudeville last season. Jttmes Doughty, a 32-year-old clown, now showing a troupe of dogs at Brighton Beach,. Eng, got a present of $15 from King George the other day. One of the special engagemets made by the New theatre company this season is that of Eleanor Morettl, who will play the role of Night In "The Blue Bird." This will be the first time that Miss Morettl has had an opportunity to play a poetic role since she created. Hosy Sky in "The Darling of the Gods. Fred Frear, who Is so funny in the part of Mr Nish in "The Merry Widow," was the first actor to play Ko Ko in "The Mikado" In this country. That appearance in the part took place In Chicago some months prior to the authorized production of the piece in Boston and New York. It was stopped by an injunction. Herr Ernst von Possart, the eminent German tragedian, will make a tour of 10 weeks In this country during the coming season. He will be under the man agement or tierr uusuv Ainoerg, as act ODera. to be called "Deianira." and Leoncavallo Is engaged on a new opera to be entitled "Prometheus." Oliver C. Faust announces the opening of the Faust school of pianoforte and organ tuning Sept 15 at 27-29 Oatns-boro st. Mr Faust has been at the head of the pianoforte and organ tuning department of the New England conservatory of music for over 20 years, during which time he has graduated nearly 1000 students. This department of the conservatory has continually grown in Importance, until It h.-is seemed wise to establish it as a separate school. The New England conservatory of music has therefore discontinued its tuning department and aK ranged with Mr Faust to take over the entire equipment. "Elektra" was sung last year in Berlin only eight times, although in the preceding year It was heard 20 times. Greater still was the decline in the popularity of "Salome," which was sung ; one season 25 times. Last year eight performances satisfied the public de- mand. G. P. Centlnini, who was an aid to ; Gattl-casazza at the Metropolitan opera house In New York last season. Intends to produce In the United States next season a comic opera which he believes will prove to be another "Merry Widow." It Is now called "Claudlne." The music is by Rudolph Berger, whose waltz, "Amoureuse," Is still the rage In Paris. The Information comes from Paris that Theodore Stier has been engaged as conductor of the orchestra that will accompany Anna Favlowa and Michael Mordkln on their American" tour at the head of the Imperial Russian ballet. The orchestra is recruited from the membership of the Metropolitan opera house orchestra. The Boston opera house will open Its season Sept 19 with an elaborate promotion of Balfe's ever popular opera. "Tho Bohemian Girl." The Aborns are giving this opera the most magnificent production that they have given any operatic work. It promises to be a huge presentation, both as to scenery, costuming and the number and quality of the people employed. This will be the first elalwrate production of "The Bohemian Girl" that has been made in recent times. Heretofore, this opera haw been given as one of a repertoire, with the result that the scenic equipment has been meagre. Provincial municipalities in France are chided by Le Menestrel for unfavorable comparison with the cities beyond the Rhine as regards the practical encouragement extended to musical organizations. Wiesbaden subventions its municipal orchestra to the extent of $28,630 a year, and statistics show that Dusseldorf s subvention to' its orchestra is $19,920, Madtreburg's $11,8 46, Elberfeld's $11,450, Cologne's $y"JK), FATHER AND MOTHER CURED OF DRINK HABIT AT NEAL INSTITUTE They Send a Joyous Letter to Their Son Who Had Left Home for the Philippines Declaring He Would Never Return As Long As They Drank. Oscar Hammerstein announces that the Manhattan opera hodse will reopen on Monday, Sept 12, with his production of the new comic opera, "Hans the Flute Player." There will be a chorus of 120 and a ballet of 40. Marie Kousnletzoff, the Russian soprano who was to appear at the Metropolitan opera house next winter, as well as with the Chicago opera company, has found it impossible to cancel her Russian engagements and so will not come to New York until season after next, Lilll Lehmann is outspoken in her denunciation of the habit of operatic managers who insist upon making their artists rehearse on the same day they are to appear publicly. She also urges singers to refuse to appear in Wagnerian operas under ordinary conditions unless conductors consent to judicious cuts. A new romantic light opera by Frederic Rosso will be produced Aug 22 at Eastbourne, Eng. "The Bedouin Beauty," as it is called, will then go on tour, prior to a London performance. The Italian conductor Toscantnl has a poor opinion of Richard Strauss' operas, and lately said: "They are not sincere. Thev are sensational; they are written was the case when he was here more i for money." These are ail familiar com than lo yeavs ago. Herr von Possart will play In his best-known roles at one of the Shubert Broadway theatres. Including Shylock and Nathan the Wise, and will be supported by a specially selected company of German actors. He conies to America under the permission of the prince regent of Munich, where he lives and plays only at the state theatre. He draws a liberal pension and is the only German actor ever honored with a title that of geheimrath. Henry B. Harris has assembled an excellent cast to support Elsie Ferguson in her new piece "A Matter of Money." Frank Mills and Paul Ever-ton will act the leading male roles.

An opera to be produced at the Comlque in Paris this season is M Pon's 'je Voile de Bonheur," a Chinese story. The libretto Is from the pen of the former president of the council, George Clemenceau. A letter "from the States" Is carrying a message to the Philippines that will bring joy to a boy who left his home with sorrow weighing heavily upon him. It wasn't a happy home that he left. Both father and mother were in the clutches of the drink habit. "You'll never see me again," the boy said, "until I know I have a father and a mother who have Btopped drinking!" Last week this father and mother, whose love for liquor had become the ruling passion of their lives, came to the Neal Institute together. Friends who had learned of the marvelous results of the Neal three-day cure for the drink habit decided they would try and save this family from certain ruin that threatened it. These friends brought the unfortunate vlfUms of a resistless appetite to the Neal Institute. It was an unusual occurrence. Three days later this couple left for their home. The mother, with her best womanly reason restored and all craving for drink absolutely gone, was Just quietly happy, but the father, In his release from the power of drink, was delighted. "I propose," he declared, "to tell everybody I know what the Neal Institute has done for both of us. It has given us a chance to really live again!" And before the couple started for home the father sent a letter speeding to the Philippines, and it carried the news which will lift from the absent son the secret burden which is weighing down his heart. "Mother and I have quit drinking and want nothing more to do with the stuff," was the preface to the, paternal missive which told of the dual redemption made possible by friends who knew what the Neal cure has accomplished during the' seven years, of its wonderful efficiency in the treatment of cas"es which others have called "hopeless." Bringing happiness to homes in which father, brother or son have been victims of appetite for liquor is the every-day mission of the Neal Institute. The Boston Neal Institute Is located at 3Q4 Newbury st. There are 40 similar institutions in the United States every one of them carrying" fn a great mission of helpfulness. Bostonians and other New Eng-landers whp are "nervous drinkers," and find the desire growing upon them, can go to the Neal Institute at 304 Newbury st., and in three days just a brief little vacation from the office they can have that appetite for alcohol turned into positive aversion for all drink. Friends of those who drink, and who see their loved ones firmly in the clutch of this appetite, can send them to this institute, where there is all the quiet and privacy of home, hotel or club. Neal Institutes never make public names of their guests, and the environment is that of a happy family. The Neal Institute is conducted along ethical lines. Twenty-five small doses of a harmless vegetable remedy are taken internally. That is all. There are no hypodermic injections and no prolonged stay, as required by many other treatments. The Neal plan is a builder of the nervous tissues, and every trace of alcoholic poison is driven from the system. The Neai Institute guarantees a cure or a refund of the money, and the management always says: "Satisfy us of your ability to pay and then pay us when yu' your physician, your friend or all are satisfied." The Neal Institute always treats all communications and its patients in the strictest confidence. Names of guests are never revealed. If you will write the Institute they will give you unquestionable references as to their ability to do as they promise, and as to their responsibility. If you have a friend who would like to rid himself of the drink habit, write or wire the Neal Institute, Dept G, 304 Newbury st., Boston, for further particulars and booklet. Telephone 3970 Back Bay. Roslindale, Mass. Aug. 17, 1910. The Neal Institute, 304 Newbury Street, Boston, Mass.: Gentlemen I desire to thank yon for the courtesies extended me whili taking the Neal Cure at your institute. I have been an extremely heavy drinker for years, and was unable to control my ravenous appetite for liquor; my nerves and stomach were in the most terrible condition possible, as I do not remember some things which they afterward told me had happened during the first night at your home, due to a delirious state of mind. Your treatment is truly marvelous in its effect upon the patient, inasmuch as it does remove the desire and craving for drink, and builds up the nervous system in three days' time. I now am absolutely certain that liquor will never again get a hold upon me, as that awful craving is entirely gone. The Neal Cure for the drink habit does all and more than it claims for Its patients; it Is truly a blessing to humanity. Every person addicted to the drink habit should, in justice to himself, his family and friends, take the Neal Three-Day-Drink-Cure, and rid himself of the vicious habit I have tried other treatments, with no degree of satisfaction; however, I was perfectly cured in three days by your Neal treatment, and have not the slightest fear that I will ever take another drink o( liquor. Wishing you every success, and the prosperity that your humane efforts so greatly deserve. I am, Yours, very sincerely. Original letter can be seen at tho Institute.

Control of the Lake Water. One popular fallacy regarding the control of lake Wlnnlpesaukee's flow is that It is In the hands of the cotton mills at Lowell and Lawrence, and that they can draw the water at will. When the lake was first dammed for the benefit of these mills a corporation was formed to control the water, known as the Wlnnepissiogee lake cotton and woolen company, the chief stockholders being the mill interests at Lowell, Lawrence and Manchester. One condition of this company's charter was that the flow from the lake could not be restricted to less than 250 serve or Out nine inches above low i cudic reet a second, which was equal water mark, represented on the gage i to the natural flow. This gave all in- ! as "0." ' terests on the rivers below an equal ; The report that this is the lowest and stable supply of water. The flow : point the lake has ever reached wps er- ! has never been less than 260 cubic ' roneous, though It is the lowest ever ' feet, and for years has averaged 275 i reached in midsummer. cubic feet, which has been found to be j January and February are the months a2"t what can be used- to advantage, when the lake reaches Its lowest lev- The building of mammoth new mills rls. In January, it stood at which Is a point representing Its natural level before It was dammed for storage purposes. The only other time prior to that In which "o" was reached was in January, 1X83. It is to be noted from the charts kept at Lakeport showing tho lake's levels that these low stages of water in winter usually follow a ve'y dry summer. Thus 1S82 had a rainfall of but 36.96 Inches. In 1889 there was a rainfall of but 34.07 inches and the lake fell In .!.. following January to the five-inch mark. Whatever danger of water shortage there Is, therefore, in the condition of the lake is more likely to become evident next winter than at any earlier time. at .uoweii ana Lawrence has not changed the flow, for with the increase or tne plants there has been an in crease in the usVof steam as auxiliary I performance. Cyril Ring, a younger bro(her of I Blanche, Frances and Julie Ring, Is to make his tirst appearance on the stag' 1 as a memlier of Blanche Ring's com-j pany in "The Yankee Girl," opening ' Aug 29. He was prepared for Harvard, and has passed his preliminary ex-! animations for entering the university. ! nut he has now decided to follow the footsteps of the rest of his family. When Forbes-Robertson procnicei "Macbeth" at the Lyceum theatre In London, he had a curious experience with an army of overambitious supers. One night during the battle scene, a soldier, who was stationed on a particularly tall piece of scenery, accidentally lost his footing and fell headlong on to the stage. The effect was exceedingly realistic, and after the performance Mr Forbes-Robertson complimented him on it. The next night, however, to everybody's consternation, almost every super occupied some place or other of vantage, and at a given moment that was when each was certain that Forbes-Robertson was on the stage each rolled from his perch at the back, only stopping at the footlights. That night the tragedy ws very nearly turned into an acrobatic Power. About 20 years ago the cotton mill i interests withdrew from the water con- ; troling company, selling out to the ' Lake Winnipesaukee paper companv.

Before his grand opera season at Drury Lane next spring, when he will be pitting his forces against the Covent Garden company, Mr Beecliam Is to give a three months' season himself at Covent Garden. He Intends to produce several novelties, "Koanga," by Delius; "Columba," by Mackenzie; "Dyian," by-Holbrooke; d'Albert's "Tiefland" in English, Lerouxs "Le Chemineau" in English. Ida Brooks Hunt, prima donna last season of "The Chocolate Soldier, ' will not sing in that successful operetta during the coming winter, but will have the leading soprano part In a new European piece listed for production in ths country. Work on the scenic production of "L'Enfant Prodigue" has been Completed at the scenic studio of tho Boston opera company in Swampscott.
