jr., of No. 1123 Marion street, this city,
Gorge W. Dunham, Assistant Prose
cutor of Hunterdon county, issued a
warrant (or the arrest of Henry. O.
Right, director of the Fairview Train
ing school, near Frenchtown.
Right, it is charged, severely whipped
and beat boys under his care, kicked
them shackled them with chains to
fieir beds and half starved them on a
diet of bread and water. The school is
not one to which boys are sent for pun
ishment. Sparks, whore business requires him
to travel much of the time, placed his
eleven-year-old son Henry in the school
two months ago. Last week he received
a note from Right saying the boy had
fallen and hurt himself. Eddie has
always been well and strong. Sparks
went to the school, expecting to find him
per laps suffering, but under good care.
"He lay partly conscious in a Morris
cl.air when I went to the school," Mr.
Sparks said today. "It was biasing hot
but be had drawn a heavy blanket
over his head to keep off the swarms of
fee. His right shoulder was paralysed
and there were two big cuts in his knee.
He has wasted almost to a skeleton and
coi ld barely talk to me. He looked as if
he had been beaten within an inch of his
life. When I told him I would take him
home he put his arms around my neck
i parks took him home and placed him
in the care of private physicians. His
body was covered with bruises. The
physicians say it is doubtful if he will
live. He told his father a long story
of abuses at the school. Mr. Sparks in
formed the authorities and Prosecutor
Dunham was sent to investigate. The
warrant for the arrest of Right is the
rest It of his visit.
Mr. Dunham, it is said, found con
ditiens quite as bad as the Sparks boy
reported. The account of bis visit
recites that he came upon a group of
about a doaen boys, from ten to sixteen
years old, all in rags and all bearing
signs of neglect and cruelty. Some of
them had marks and scars of beatings
others carried running sores which had
been treated improperly. Bedding in the
dormitories is described as unclean,

pleaded guilty and was paroled. He

resulted a discussion which has been
productive of the nonsensical yarns

who with me believed that it is better
to suffer a little ia the cause of common

or three centuries occupied so promi
nent a place In the historic annals of
Europe and In the minds of Europeans,
was, from the most reliable accounts,
a Christian conqueror of enormous
power and great splendor, who com
bined the character of priest and king
nnd ruled over vast dominions In the
orient In the middle ages. He had, it
was related, established a powerful em

derful stories were told of his victo

His mode of warfare, which was
unique and entirely effective. Indicates
an Intimate acquaintance with ex
plosives and combustibles. He pos
sessed an army of life sized copper
soldiers mounted on brazen horses,
which were charged with explosive
materials, projectiles and poisonous
gas. This formidable array was mar
shaled to the front and spat forth its
deadly fumes and dangerous projec
tiles with horrid effectiveness, making
havoc In the ranks of the enemy.

CREATING NEW STATES.
Work That Congress May Do,
Once Done, Cannot Undo.
Several times it has been proposed
to mnke two states out of tbe state of
New York. In fact, resolutions have
been Introduced In the state legisla
ture once or twice, bat have died In
committee. Tbe purpose bas been to
include all of the present state south
of Westchester county In a new state
to be called (In one Instance) tbe state
of Manhattan. North of tbe Bronx
district the name of New York was
still to be retained. The surrounding
Islands of the south all those of Long
Island sound. Long Island complete
and all of the counties comprising
New York city were to be embraced
within tbe new state of Manhattan.
Tbe creation of a new stato confers
a right that cannot later be abrogated
and In this respect Is unique In the
establishment of political areas. After
the people of the district in question
have decided by vote that the carry
ing out of a new state is desired, con
gress passes upon the application. Up
to this point congress Is supreme.
Once, however, congress agrees to the
new state creation and tbe new state
becomes an established fact, then no
power of the republic can undo whnt
Iib.i lieen done by lerlslallve w-t No
repeal can revoke the privileges of a

Ball a Q lets' Game.
Of an the games ball seems to be
peculiarly a girl's game throughout the
ages. Tbe Roman girls used to strike
balls with the palm of tbe band to
keep them bouncing or would (ling
thnii against the wall to drive tlieiu
back on the return or would pass the
ball from hand to hand In tbe ring or
la a row. The ball of the olden times
was much like tbe one now in use. It
was aoft or hard, as occasion demand
ed; It was plain with pointed or em
broidered cloth; It was a hollow large
balloon or a small light sphere. The
German poets make frequent allusion
to ball as a girl's game. It was de
scribed as a first sport of summer.
One writer observes, "When I saw the
girls on the street playing ball then
came to our ears tbe song of birds."
The game was a favorite one with
youths and maids, who would contend
for the ball, that the one wbo gained

Curious History of the Jog In
Northern Boundary Line.
How did tbe United States come to
net that smnll corner of land which
Juts out from the extreme northern
boundary of Minnesota? History ofl
(hat little "nose" which sticks out Into
Canada from Minnesota and which
constitutes tbe northernmost point of
the United States is very Interesting.
Under the treaty of 1783 the boundary
between the United States and British
possessions was fixed. A certain point
on tbe Lake of the Woods was mutual
ly agreed to as one starting point, this
being considered tbe headwaters of thd
St Lawrence river and great lakes
At that time It was not known wheth
er this point was north or south of the
forty-ninth parallel, but It was known
to be close to It. The understanding
was that from that point the boundary
should go north or south to the forty
ninth parallel, us the case might be.
Later and more accurate surveys
showed that point was about twenty-
flve miles north of the forty-ninth par
allel, and so at this place the boundary
makes u Jog above that line.
Uncle Sam thus has a little piece of
territory of about a hundred square
miles In extent nortb of the general
boundary. And the Joke of It Is that
any one has to go by water In order to
reach this little piece of territory unless
he wants to go through Canada. Path
finder. LOVE SWAYS THE ARTIST.
His Work Show the Glorifying Power
of the Grand Passion.
"How Wagner must have loved when
be wrote that!" exclaimed old King
William of Prussia when be hoard
"Tristan und Isolde" for the first time.
We know now through the publication
of Wagner's love letters and other bio
graphical and autobiographical mate
rial that he was In love with Mathildc
Wesendonck when he composed the
opera. This passion was warp and
woof of that Immortal music drama,
the greatness of which compelled Wag
ner all the rest of his life to hold him
self up to his highest level of produc
tion. Frank Harris has pretty definitely
proved that Shakespeare wrote "An
tony and Cleopatra" under the Influ
ence of n tragical and hopeless love for.
Mary Fitton. It has been declared byl
a great critic that "Antony and Cleo
pntra" has in It every sbred of Shake!
speare's vitalizing power and thnt as
tragedy It marks the zenith of his
achievement. If It Is Indeed Mary Fit
ton who Is in It she possesses a monu
ment more glorious than any memorial
of stone ever raised to a potentate
saint or n god.

An expert manual training man talk
ed with tbe writer about so simple a
