S BY JULIUS CHAMBERS. ww 7 & & l A distinguished Chicago alienist now in! town, drawn hither by the prospective meeting of ib Peace Congress next week. old m a remarkable story yesterday. It dealt wl:h n almost miraculous cure !-) foiled by bltu ot a man far pa middle age mho appeariJ to be In a hopelessly Dervoua condition. It it best told in his own language: "Among my pa'ientj was a typical rep-resenlsttre o! the end of last ceutury millionaire." he began. "This man bad been a successful merchant, but 50 years of hard work hadn't enabled him to ac-rumulate more than half a million. One Bay. accidentally, ho blundered Into a real estate investment that made him a millionaire. Would you believe It? The fact that In less than three months he liad more than doubled the accumulations of half a century, shattered his nervous ystom! When I was called In. I never contemplated a more serious case. My patient was afflicted with several forms of nervousness, simultaneously. Ho would Spring from his seat, although the act of rising would cause him to try out from the rheumatic pains that had for years afflicted blm. The usual sedatives had no effect upon him. He grew worse, day by day, and 1 was losing hope, when a curious Incident happened. We were sitting together In his library. Ho had ouly B few minutes before recovered from a violent spasmodic attack, and I was In a condition of anxiety, fearing a recurrence. Tbo weather was mild and he Insisted upon having a window open. "Watching him Intently, as 1 did. I was aware that a change whs coming over blm. Whether for better or worse, I couldn't tell. Then. I became conscious that there was a dreadful noise and clatter outside, caused by the passing ot a large truck, loaded with anglo steel. The long strips of steel Jangled In tune and out. They made such an utterly discordant clangor that I was about to close the window when a decided change for the better was observable in the man at my B'de. Ha lost his facial twltehlngs, and talked without any symptoms of aphasia. This continued as long as the Jutigllng dray was within hearing! I stepped Into another room, where the man's valet was waiting, and, giving him two dollars, told him to rush after the driver of the dray. He was to give to the man the money, it he would pass and re-pass the house. This he did. and my Joy was beyond description when I saw ibnt the noise wholly emancipated my patient from thoughts ol his distemper.' It Is only fair to say that evidences of nervous distemper recurred when the noise erased, but they were not Bo spasmodic, or so appalling to witness. " 'You must get ready to take the Limited Express to New York In Iwo hours!" paid I; and without waiting for a protest, 1 gave orders to the valet to pack a Glad-atone bag for his master. Also, a grip for, himself and to order a carriage for t he Lake Shore station. 1 drove home, threw a few things Into a bag and went tiack to mako sure that my patient started. Ha appeared to think his cas-had reached a critical stage and that I was taking him to New York to a specialist. But my idea was greater than that. . 0 VVV 4 I PASTMASTER 5 . - A William H.

Boston, Mass., April 11 "1 believe that a track meeting in this country the coming summer between the pick of the Oxford and Cambridge athletes and a team similarly selected comprising the best men at Yalo and Harvard, would be far preferable to the present proposition emanating from England, that the Oxford athletes who have Just won in their games 'ith Cambridge should come across to meet the winner of the Harvard-Yale pames." declared William Minot. captain of Harvard's track team, to an Eagle correspondent this mornins. "It strikes me that a meet such as I suggest assumes more of an international character than one confined merely to the winners of the two sets of deal games." It hi evident from the tenor of Captain Minot's remarks that little ihought has been given on this side either by liar-fnrd or by Yalo men to tho suggestion from Oxford that the winner of the Harvard-Yale dual games extend tin Invitation to Oxford, overlooking Cambridge entirely, to come across. 4 I MRS.

"We caught the train all right," continued the physician, with an enthusiasm that was infectious. "1- had reserved a stateroom for my patient and two berths outside for the valet and myself. When we pulled out for New York; the aged traveler was snugly ensconced in his quarters. An armload ot magazines and hooks and a lot of flowers had converted his state room into a boudoir. The crash and swish caused by bouncing over the switches and crossings of South Chicago dispelled every trace of my pa tient's nervousness. He was another man, before we had been under way an hour. Leaving him to himself. I kept a close watch upon him, nevertheless. At dinner time, I accompanied him to the dining car and he ate with excellent appetite. Then we went Into the smoking car and had cigars. He drank a glass of brandy Ithout 111 effects. He had been ordered to quit smoking and drinking; but I gave him rcla. Something kept his mind Interested every minute! The incessant rush of the cars through space supplied the same sedative as had the noise of the loaded dray upon the Chicago street! "What a discoverey bad I made! AI-rea ij'. I saw myself recognized as one of the famous men of the world In the treatment of neuresthenia. imagined whole trains of hospital cars, traveling Incessantly over all roads, everywhere, anywhere; but always going, going! The Idea grew upon me as 1 lay in my berth. I passed a restless night; but my patient slept until 9 o'clock. In the morning, hs was in better shape than was I. "When we landed In New York, I hired the first automobile In sight and whispered into the ear of the chauffeur: 'Anywhere, but fast; at $10 per hour!' We went to Clermont, stopped long enough to order luncheon at 1 o'clock, then up the Lafayette boulevard, by way of Tenth avenue, and back to the mid-day meal. 1 kept my companion's mind occupied with the food, the boats upon the river and every other object in sight. A few pretty girls came in with their escorts; and, strictly in the Interest of science, I didn't hesitate to draw my aged patient's attention to them. He was more interested when I gave to them great and distinguished namest his time In the interest of philanthropy. "The valet liadeen instructed to move all belongings to the foot of Twenty-third street, because our return passage had been engaged upon another trunk line. He had a bundle of evening newspapers and had bought a music box. We crossai on the ferry boat, got Into our train and started on the return trip. The homeward Journey was a thing of joy. Improvement in the Chicago man's health was continuous. From New York, I had engaged a stateroom on one train or the other each alternate day for one month; the same precaution had been taken for the westward Journel. Briefly, I only made two round trips with my millionaire i friend, but he took 'the express cure' for nervousness exactly thirty days and was absolutely relieved. That was one year ago. and my then patient hasn't had the (slightest recurrence of the nervousness with which he was afflicted. It Is a com-I plete and miraculous cure. I shall lay ;the case before the next Medical Con-! grcss of the world." i What do you think of the doctor and his j discovery T I It assuredly belongs ti the ponderable, : rather than the imponderable. But, ' "science" Is wonderfully developed. DONOGH DEAD. . i 4 William H. Donogh. INFORMAL RECEPTION.

More than half the ostriches now in the United States are the progeny of a single pair owned in Arizona In ISM. Great progress has been made in the last fivej years, and there are now 2,500 ostriches on farms in the United States. Of these, 1,740 are in Arizona, and the remainder in California, Florida and Arkansas. Where good alfalfa pasture has been available, the birds bred in America have grown larger than those first Imported. A. full grown fat ostrich will weigh from 375 to 450 pounds. He will stand 8 feet high, but can easily reach to a height of 10 or 11 feot. Ostriches thrive best in a warm, dry climate, but can be grown in any part of the Southern states and territories of this country. In a moist climate they should have protection from cold and rain. Ostriches come to maturity when about What Doctors Advise. Dr. George Carpenter, addressing the London Institute of Hygiene on the rear-was lespuuaiuio lui iue Bautiuio ui utr- told numbers of Infant children, while the health and physique of Innumerable other children wera seriously undermined not only by dirt In milk, but by the wholesale supply of tuberculous milk in London. In order to bring up children properly, not only wholesome food, but plenty of fresh air, was necessary. Dr. Carpenter entered into details regarding the position, size, ventilation and construction of nurseries, and emphasized the points that no gas stoves should be employed In such apartments, and that the windows should be sufficiently large to admit plenty of sunlight. The question of clothing was dealt with at some length, and It was stated that tho day nursery should be kept at a temperature between 60 and 65 degrees F., and the night nursery at about 65 degrees F. Dr. Carpenter Insisted upon tho necessity of children taking exercise and of walking daily out of doors, whatever the weather might be. It was pointed out that healthy games were of great value to children for developing the chest "improving the wind," and making the muscles hard and elastic. Lastly, he commented upon the effect of bathing, clothing and education upon the health of children, and said that many of life's failures were not so much due to heredity as to environment and the neglect of parents and others to do their duty by them when young. On the other hand, many of llfe'a successes were fashioned In the nursery. The Importance of early training, therefore, could hardly be over-estlmatefl. v 4v4 A Londoner. Max Rittenhnr K.ti.... he has found the curs for the subway atmosphere. He holds that ths fault lies In the dryness of ths air. and the Central London Railway , Company proposes to prsy the tunnels, every night. Tli susgest ioa was that the "humidity" of ih air abifuld be brought up to the normal considered comfortable la our climate. . If artificial rata. could be supplied in the tunnels the bumlduy would b raised, and at the same time iha dust and other elemenis inevitably present in tubs air would be brought to the ground. The chief reform suggested was lhat s special nr with s line water-spraying apparatus should t sent slowly through Hie tunnels every night This is to be tried. The photograph shows the Ingenious arrsngement which will be used for sprsyiug water evenly la all directions in th tunnel. The ngm was originally used for Iha purpose of hlta-washing ths tubs.

The nest Is a ! roun(j no,e jn h .r0ud. which the male I 8e00ps out Wjln his feet. At first the femule may not take the nest, hut may lay her first eggs on after the' male has put Ihree or four eggs in the nest, the female will lay there. In about thirty days she will lay twelve to sixteen e.sgs, and will be ready to commence incubation. Incubation takes forty-two days. Any good, well regulated incubator can be successfully used, provided it is constructed on a Ostriches Broken to Harness at Los Angeles, large enough scale to accommodate ostrich eggs, which are B inches in. diameter and 7 inches long. The ostrich , is plucked the first time when 6 months old, and should be plucked about every eight months there' After during its , lifetime. The only feathers removed are those of the wing and tail. The process of plucking consists in cutting the tail feathers and one row of the largest quill feathers in the wing with pruning shears, and drawing by the hand those of the remaining two or three rows in the wing. Two months later the quills of the cut feathers may be removed. . At plucking time the ostriches are driven in from the pasture and placed in a small pen surrounded by a' tight board fence 5 or 6 feet high. The plucking box is about 4 feet high, 20 Inches wide and S feet long, open at one end and closed with a door at the 4 4V4 4 DESCENDANT OF DRAKE. I 4 jf Jr? Xr7 :tliliiillBl A - .

An ostrich Is caught and a hood placed over its head. .The. hooded bird Is easily handled. It is placed in the plucking box. with Its head next to the closed door. The plucker stands be- bind the bird while removing the feathers. This is necessary, because the ostrich can kick or strike very hard, but it always strikes out In front, and never behind, so that the plucker Is perfectly safe If he stands in the rear. In sorting, the feathers of the male, being more valuable are kept separate from those of the female. The United States is one of the largest consumers of ostrich feathers in the world. During the fiscal year 1903-4 there was imported into this country 12,- California. 292,515 worth of "raw" or "unmanufactured" feathers. The feathers produced in America are fully as good as those coming from Africa, and it is claimed that they are broader and finer looking though some of the manufacturers con tend that they are not as strong and tough as the wild feathers. There seems to be no reason why ostrich farming may not be developed sufficiently in Arizona and California alone to supply all the feathers consumed in America. Young ostriches are usually kept in troops of 25 to 60. When they are one year old the males should be separated from the females. When they are 3Va years old the birds should be paired off, each pair being placed in a separate in-closure, which, in case the birds are to graze on alfalfa or other green food, should be large enough to furnish them sufficient food. Jacob Bonnet, a descendant of the famous English Admiral Drake, and also of the French Huguenots who settled in Westchester County in the seventeenth century, was buried to-day, he having died Monday at his home In New Rochelle. He moved there some years ago from Brooklyn, where he was born in December, 1S10, and where ho was for many years a prominent builder. He was the last surviving member of his family. LINCOLN CLTJB STAG. The fifth annual slag and beefsteak dinner of the Lincoln Club was held last night in the club house at 65 Putnam avenue. The affair was In charge of the social committee of the club, tho chairman of which is Arthur S. Somers, and was the last social event of the season. There were about one hundred and twenty-five gueBts, and nearly every one gave a story, song or Joke, and a thoroughly good time was enjoyed by all. An excellent entertainment of professional talent was produced under the di-reetion of Frank Fogarty, Including John Lloyd Wilson, bass soloist; J. Warren Kcane, magician; Charles Webber, monologue artist; Tom Moore, the celebrated minstrel, and Mr, Mozarto. musical sne. cialtlcs. 0 V i, if J .?e I was sitting in J. A. R. Studwell's of fice the other day, telling him bow to run his business if there's anything on earth that I like to do more than anything else, it is to tell some other fellow how to manage bis affairs I suppose I picked that up in my long association with news papers which everybody but the editors knew how to run. Let's see, what was I talking abou Oh, yes, Studwell. Well, you know, J. A. R. has taken command of the Brighton Beach Theater, so I was telling him what to do and what not to do down there next, when Charles A. Parker, editor of The Third Rail, came in. Please. Mr. Studwell," I was Just say ing, "if the Brooklyn Kapm Transit trains have to blow their whistles JuBt outside the open windows of the Brighton Beach Theater every four minutes during each performance p-l-e-a-s-e, Mr. Studwell, won't you kindly request the vaudeville artists who happen to be on your stage at those times to refrain from making Jokes about it? Sir, the poor, depressed public seeking entertainment there in past summers has heard, over and over again, every Joke that ever was or ever ill be cracked; and,, besides, sir, it is no Joking .matter; ana. moreover " I dt GOSSIP OF Harrison , Grey FIske ' has purchased from Percy Mackaye' the stage rights ot his play, "Sappho and Phaon," for Bertha Kalish, who will appear in it as Sappho next season. The play is a poetic tragedy and preserves in its technique the ancient unities. The subject" matter deals with legendary and historical persons of the time 600 B. C, and the plot is based on a passionate love story. The piece is set In a single scene the exterior of a Greek temple overlooking the Egean Sea. Mr. Fiske has completed arrangements to produce "Sappho and Phaon" next October at the Lyric Theater. . Katie Barry, the diminutive English comedienne, who will be at Hyde & Beh man's next week, is to make a vaudeville tour of the world. She will be remem Katie Barry. bered for her comedy work In "The Chinese Honeymoon," "Fantana" and "Mam-selle Sallle." In her globe trotting trip Bho will visit Britain, the capitals of the continent, South Africa and the Antipodes. She has some new songs snd will give ner aroll character portrayals. From Duluth, the city of copper kings, and a hive of' modern traffic, to the classical opera boards of La Scala, in Milan, Italy, the home of Italian grand opera is a bound requiring something like the good old fairy seven league boots to make. Yet Rena Vivienne, one of Mr. Savage's prima donnas In the "Madam Butterfly company, who is to sing the role at the Montauk Theater, accomplished it. This young American singer, having completed her vocal education under the famous Victor Maurcl, at Paris, learning that the composer Puccini was In Milan on business with his publisher, Senor Ricordi, made a hasty trip to the Italian city and was fortunate in securing an Interview. The musician, impressed with her voice and personal charm, gave to her tbe score Rena Vivienne. of bis grsnd opers. "Madam Butterfly. to study, and made an appointment to try ner In Its title role. He Informed her that Henry W. Savage was to produce the opera In the English tongue In the United Ststes, and If, on trial, shs proved competent, he would use his best endeavors to secure her a contract. She Immediately went to work on the score, and by the dale of the appointment with the composer, had mastered ths title role. With consternation she lesrned that her trial was to take place on ths stage of La Scala. There, with full orchestral accompaniment, before ths smallest and most critical audience ever seen In Milan, consisting of Puccini and his friend snd publisher, Tito Rlcordl. who stsged bis opers st Mllsn and London, ths American girl sang the part In a way that Impressed tbe composer. A report was sent to Mr. Ravage, who sngaged ths young singer by csble, Mme. Marietta dl Dlo, whose song "Le Trsln de 1'lalslr" ("Ths I'leaaure Train.") wss hissed by Oscar Hammersteln at Koster snd Dial's Music Hall, of which he was then s silent partner. Is now s member of Eddie Foy's company presenting "Tbe Orchid," st Lew Field's llersld Squsrs Theatre. Mme, dl Dlo, during the time ot ths sbove occurrence, In W.H, wss In receipt of a weekly sslary of (1.250, but she now gets the trifling wage of til per week. In "The Orchid," Mmn. dl Dlo has not a single line to speak, but sho appears on tho progrsmme ss one nl the msskers In the last set. Mmn. dl Dlo was brought from Vienna In 1804 under s contract by Mr. Rial. On the night that Mr. Hammersteln took exception to one of her songs, George Kesslcr sat Id so I: v I -vYY i i ' L, U V . : i. " I Then Parker butted in and told this story: "Up In St. Paul, one summer I -thinlc it was 1890 the New York, Lyceum Com- ; pany played an engagement in the old Market Halt. w:hich had been done OTer into a theater for use while the Opera House was undergoing architectural ' transformation. One. week of this engagement was devoted to Henry C. DeMille's play, "The Wife." Every night at just 10 o'clock Georgia Cayvan spoke a- Una that went somewhat like. this: - - ""Listen! I will tell you the story of my life.'. - i ' , ' ' "And precisely at the instant' that ehs ended this line, the great: clock in the tower just overhead began, with grim deliberation, to strike ten awful whacks on the big bell, the reverberations of which rang through the theater in a war that drowned out every 'sound of Miss Cayvan's voice. The result was that ths audiences which attended this theater that week never did find out what the story of her life was." And while I was making a note of this yarn. with, a view to writing It for the Eagle, I plumb forgot that I had come there for the purpose of pinning Mr. Studwell down to a promise that either the B. R. T. whistling shall be discontinued next summer or the actors be prohibited from Joking about it. THE STAGE I adjacent box: Being a friend of ths singer he resented the hissing and Jumped over the railings dividing the boxes and proceeded to pummel Mr. Hammersteln with his fists. The affair created great excitement -in the theater, and the two belligerents were arrested. This affair resulted in the breaking up ot tbe firm ot Hammerstein, Koster & Blal. During . Mme. de Dio's engagement at the music hall she met S. S. Thome. After her ' marriage Mr. and Mrs. Thorne went to Paris to live,, returning to this country in 1902. There will be a suggestion of pathos about the little booth nt the Actors' Fund Fair in the Metropolitan Opera House next month where the veteran players housed at the Actors' Home, will personally dispose of their own handiwork. The first contribution comes in the form of a dozen pen drawings, made by Charles Gonzales, an actor and singer for over half a century, who played with Edwin Booth in 1853, and sang in opera with Parepa Rosa, Campbell, Castle and Caroline Richlngs. Bond, the tenor, has au tographed two hundred edition de luxs copies of the Btory of his life, to be sold at the fair. David Warfleld has autographed five hundred of his photographs in "The Music Master. There will be autographs at the Century Theater Booth, of every celebrity, living and dead, con-. nected with the American stage tor ths past half century. Owen Hall, the English dramatist, whose real name was James Davis, and who died in London yesterday, was a brother of a Brooklynite, Harrie Davis. He was a barrister for twelve years before he took up journalism and literature. He was the author of "Florodora," "The Geisha," "A Greek Slave," "The Silver Slipper" and "The Girl from Kays."
