Citizens Convinced Some One Made Mistake. SPRINGFIELD, April Beginning next week tae board of trade will conduct a thorough investigation of the leasons why the locket lost by Bertram .;. Spvncer the ni..; iic robbed the home of A. K. Blair and later found by Charles L. Simons in an aster bed in the rear of hi home at t6 School st and which led to the arrest of Spencer and later to his confession of the murder of Miss Martha B. Blackstone was withheld from the police. Fred T. Ley, president of the board of trade. Is at the head of this movement and will call on Mayor Dathrop Monday to see what action it is advisable to take in the matter. "The investigation and placing of the responsibility for the police department not having the locket," said Air Ley, "will show where the criticism justly belongs. If the police department is being unjustly criticised the public ought to know it. The movement for an investigation had been deferred for several days because it was thougnt it would be best lo wait until some of tiie excitement created by the murder had subsided, when those undertaking the ii. estimation couid do the work much easier." By Citizens' Committee. A petition for an investigation will be circulated among the business men and will be presented either to the' citizens' committee or the city government. Mr Ley said the petition will undoubtedly be presented to the citizens' committee, as it is believed this is the proper body to conduct the investigation. Mayor Lathrop said this afternoon he had not heard anything authoritative relative to an investigation of the police department or the reasons for withholding the locket. He declined to express any opinion on the matter. Robert A. Knight, who learned of the finding of Spencer's locket by Charles JL. timons, after Spencer broke into A. E. Blair's home, 66 School st, this afternoon told of his interview with Chief William J. Quilty after that break and of informing the head of FOR RUSSIAN GRAFT PROBE niiiiiiiu Amur HAILWAT bKANI MAY 00 DEEPER Ex-Judge Parker Visits St Petersburg.

During this interview the word client' was not used nor was any language which could be construed as indicating that I represented anyone but myself. "About 10 days later, having heard nothing whatever from him nor anyone else regarding this interview, called him on the telephone and inquired as to what investigation he had made and with what results. He replied that he had turned the matte1-over to Capt Boyle and that he had learned nothing. From that time until Sunday, April 3, at which time the locket was In the possession of the police department, I had no conversation with anyone regarding the matter nor at any time since such Interviews plies the lymph with greater quanti ties of oxygen. As the circulation of the lymph through the lymphatic system is accomplished largely by the muscular action of breathing it naturally Improves that circulation by reason of the greater muscular effort throughout the thorax required In deep breathing. This is the real reason why a person feels so good after a period of deep breath ing and not because of Its effect on the blood or the circulation of the blood. The blood is only capable of taking certain amount or oxygen and usual- ly the requisite amount Is furnished in ordinary, shallow breathing the kind of breathing which one does unconsciously and automatically. People breathe more slowly and deeper while asleep, but again the amount of oxygen which the blood takes In is no greater than in the regular breathing when one is awake, because the amount of oxygen taken in by the blood Is determined by the amount of carbon dioxide, or impurity, which the blood throws off in the process of exhalation. Oxygen is the life of blood and the act of res plration consists in supplying by means of Inhalation to tl or the uody through the felood and getting rid of the carbon dioxide gas, which the blood brings back from the cells of the body, by means of exhalation. This Is accomplished in the lungs. j The impure blood comes through the I veins and is pumped by one side of the I heart through the lungs and during ! the passag ethrough the lungs it is ! purified and passes through the other j side of the heart into the arteries and i thence through th ehody, carrying the i.uvo i n.wivwi frn.n i-hif rv, 1 necessary supply or oxygen wnn it.

And the town was saved, even before ti e returning excursionists, who seeing the blaze as tney approached the wharf, jumped to the shore before the boat touched, could reach the scene of action. A great crowd of women and spec tutors from neighboring places collected to witness the spectacle. Among the survivors of this historic conflagration are Mrs John W. Church, Miss Annie F.

H. B. Morse, a lencher of art in the Young Men's Christian association and in the city drawing schools. "We need," he says, "more thought for the nation from the individual. The misuse of liberty Is only too evident from one sea to the other, and I do not hesitate in saying that a truthful national spirit dally instilled into the children, and dailv placed before their eyes, would result in a higher type of citizenship when they come to take their places in the world." In order to bring this about, Mr Morse believes that there should be more decorations of a national character, such as are now seen in state capltols and public buildings, plated in the modern school rooms and assembly halls. "Too many of the pictures' which hang on the walls of the schools." said Mr Morse, "are so far beyond the comprehension of the pupil as to be useless in teaching them any immediate lesson. The subjects chosen are generally masterpieces of art. and are seldom understood by mature minds, some only by artists, some only by a few artists. "This choice, however, is certainly a areat advance on the unadorned walls . . v 1 . . . , . i . .

Mr Morse is an artist, and has always been intensely interested in historic subjects. In fact, his first successful canvas was 'Paul Revere's Ride.' This was painted for a well-known publisher who was seeking some historical subjects to reproduce for schoolrooms. Contrary to the usual delineation of Paul Revere's ride by other artists, Mr Morse has chosen to represent the type of people possessing youth and beauty and refinement, as taking their place in the battle of that memorable day, as well as the sturdy farmer folk more orten aepictea have anv further respotisi'iiiity, nor any ability to place the students who are competent in positions where they will begin to earn material returns Ruth eir time. "There should be more thought for the pupil as an individual, upon whom the teacher, the master and the principals i should reflect credit, instead of the pupil being merely a necessary unit lo support teacher, master and principal. "What positions are secured, 1 believe are secured through the personal influence of the individual ten Cher. As n rule, the average pupil of ability is poor, and his influence to secure a position does not usually amount to anything, and the Influence of the teacher is also necessarily small, and for one position he has to offer there are a doaen whom he is equally bound to help. "And there is no hope in a system which tabulates a pupil of marked ability as a unit to grind out in a mill of statistics for the employment of time which Should bo spent in furthering the personal welfare of each pupil as thev become -fitted for service.
