Easter Fashions jCnd "Weather. Th
"women folks, old and young:, are anxious
ly awaiting the clearing-up shower and
hoping for fine "weather Sunday, in order
that they may be able to turn out to
church in all the glories of Easter hats
and bonnets, to say nothing: of new
dresses and other gear. The milliners are
also worrying about the weather, and the
headgear they have built for Easter,
which is reported to be fearfully and won
derfully made, and to be more gorgeous
than -anything of the kind ever seen here
before. The "Weather Bureau man is
doing his best to change the weather, but
cannot give any assurances of anything
better, and is not afraid of producing any
"worse than has been coming along of late.
'March was the coldest and windiest and
rainiest month lor years, and April so
far has been following suit. A young
woman "Who called at her milliner's yes
terday for her new hat, after admiring it
for a while, tearfully remarked: "I sup
pose It will rain Sunday, and "We "will all
have to wear our old duds." The cold,
after all, is only, comparative, as flowers
are blooming on "all sides and fruit trees
keep putting out blossoms, but the "wind
and rain are beyond comparison. A gar
dener "was seen yesterday "with a "wagon
load of potted plants, all looking thrifty
and beautiful, but he had them in a cov
ered wagon, and was inside himself, and
Tvas wearing a thick overcoat and a heavy
FXORENCE CiRITTENTON HOMB. At a
meeting of the managers of the Florence
Crittenton Home yesterday the superin
tendently submitted the monthly report,
showing 17 girls and 12 "babies had been
beneficiaries of the institution during the
month of March. A circular letter -was
received from Mr. Crittenton, urging the
observance of the -week from April 14 to
April 21 as a self-denial week for the
benefit of the Home, and requests all girls
who have been saved through its agency
to Tvrite a letter on the birthday of Flor
ence, April 19, expressing their apprecia
tion of the benefits of the Home. One
girl who -was in the Home for three years
writes of her happy married life and home
on a farm, where her little child is the
pet of the neighborhood and she is "boss
of the ranch." Eleven cases of measles
and four pneumonia patients among the
Inmates of the Home are progressing fa
vorably toward convalescence. Great in
terest is taken in the new building by
the inmates and friends of the institu
tion, and work upon it will soon be com
menced. It is estimated that it will cost
$15,000, and will accommodate 50 inmates.
Kept the Recording Angel Bust. In
one of the most violent squalls of wind
and rain which swept through the city
yesterday a Chinaman's hat was blown
off at the corner of Second and Salmon
and went whirling down Second street in
the gutter leaning against the curb. The
Celestial gave chase and was aided by his
umbrella, which under the pressure of a
40-knot breeze pulled him rapidly along.
Ho was not under any such inconvenience
as the conscientious Quaker who had to
hire a man "to damn his fleeting tile,"
but was able to express his feelings copi
ously and forcibly. In front of the en
trance to the A. O. U. "W. Temple the
umbrella got ahead of the hat and stopped
it Just In time for the Chinaman to fall
upon both and force them out of sight In
the mud which is plentiful there. "What
he said could not be understood except
by Inference, and so is of no interest to
the Christian inhabitants of the city, but
he kept the Chinese recording angel busy
for a time.
Carnegie's Offer. Portland may not
be able to avail itself of Andrew Car
negie's offer of 5100,000 for a free public
library, unless the conditions are modi
fled. The city tax authorized for a library
will not raise the amount which Mr. Car
negie asks as a guarantee for main
tenance. It has been suggested, that Jf.
the Portland Library Association should
consolidate with the Free Library, he
resources of both, added to the city tax,
would be sufficient for maintenance. The
trustees of the Portland Library Associa
tion have decided that they have no au
thority to consolidate. Mr. Carnegie
will probably be asked to permit his gift
to be considered as an endowment to the
Portland Library on condition that the
library Is made free.
Y. M. C. A. Supper. Tonight at 6:30
the "Woman's Auxiliary of the Young
Men's Christian Association give a com
plimentary supper to the young men of
the association in honor of the interna
tional secretary, C. S. "Ward, of New
York. A conference will also be held to
consider the desirability of enlarging the
building, comer. Fourth and Yamhill
streets. It is understood that this mat
ter will be considered in a number of
different ways. The gathering promises
to be a meeting of much interest to the
members and friends of the association.
The building committee of the board has
prepared a report to' be presented, and
short statements will be made by the
heads of various departments.
Casey at the Bar. A gray-haired man
named Edward Casey was brought before
Municipal Judge Cameron yesterday,
charged with being drunk. The Judge
observed that Casey had been in court
many times for the same offense, and
"that it is not a case of -Casey at the
bat, but Casey at the bar." Casey, who
was too mournful-lookinsr -nrohahiv n
have heard De "Wolf Hopper's- famous
poem, said: "It's my only failing; I can't
keep away from drink. But give me an
other chance. Let me off this time with
a small flne;"'arid ;if I come back again
send me to 3&fl 'ior "three months." "I'll

"Who Has Lost an Elk? "W. S. Curtis,
of Dayton, Or., writes to Game "Warden
Qulmby under date of April 3 as follows:
"A doe elk, evidently astray from some
park, as she Is quite tame, has been on
my farm near Forest Grove for over a
month. "When first seen she was in the
barnyard with the cow, but the latter,
not taking a fancy to the stranger, hooked
the elk out of the yard, since which time
it has been pasturing on the meadow.
On April 2 I got within a few rods of
the animal. It Is a fine animal, and must
be full grown, as its height exceeds that
of a cow. The animal is seriously dam
aging my new-sown timothy meadow, not
so much from browsing as tramping the
ground. Several parties have set traps to
catch the animal, but In vain so far. If
you can discover the owner of the elk,
please inform him of her whereabouts and
have the animal taken away. Some
hunter will shoot her yet. I write you
because possibly you may be in a position
to discover the owner. All correspond
ence concernig the elk should .be ad
dressed to Eugene "Whipple, Forest Grove,
Or., or to my address in Dayton, Or.'
School Exhibits for Buffalo. The
exhibits for the Buffalo exposition which
the principals of the various public
schools were directed to have prepared
some two weeks ago, are beginning to be
handed in to Superintendent RIgler. They
comprise specimens of all kinds of school
work maps, language work, geography,
arithmetic, history, etc. Many of the ex
hibits are tastefully ornamented. One
from a history class, concerning the "War
of 1812, has on the first page a pen-and-ink
sketch of the fight between the Constitu
tion and Guerrlere. Exhibits from geog
raphy classes are illustrated with neatly
drawn maps, compositions with drawings,
and so on. Commissioner Dosch has se
cured space for the exhibit, but It is
doubtful if there will be room for all the
specimens. The exhibit will be larger and
.finer than those sent to the Chicago or
Killed bt the Cars. Suffering from
the effects of injuries received by being
struck by a train near Goble, Emll Jor
genson, of Hutchinson, Minn., died yes
terday as the steamer Hassalo was about
to land .at Ash-street dock. The body
was taken to Holman's undertaking
rooms. A Judge from Columbia County
who was on 'board the Hassalo said that
Jorgenson had been found, severely
bruised about the head, lying near the
railroad tracks at Goble, probably hav
ing been struck by a passing train. He
was taken on board the steamer, in order
that he might get surgical aid in this
city. The police here were telegraphed
to in advance, and City Physician Zan
and an ambulance were In waiting, but
the man was past surgical aid. His
identity was established by letters found
in his pockets.
Elks "Will Hold a. Circus. Something
new again. The Elks are going to give a
circus next Summer, say July or August.
It will be a society amateur affair, with
professional features. Teddy Rowe, who
piloted the street fair and Elks' carnival
last year, will be the managing editor of
the circus. At a meeting of the Elks'
Lodge last night Mr. Rowe, S. H. Fried
lander, T. B. McDevltt, Captain "W. J.
Riley and H. C. Hippie were appointed a
committee to break ground for the en
terprise. They will get together in a few
days and outline plans. About the only
point decided on is that the circus will
be held under a tent. "Whatever details
are decided or, it may be set down as a
fact in advance that No. 142, B. P. O. E
will make the affair a success. The whole
town will be with them.
Studying the Blue Heron. Oneof the
leading features of the meeting of the
John Burroughs Society Tuesday evening
was the reading of a highly interesting
paper by Herman T. Bahlmann, compris
ing personal observations and study of
the common game and water birds around
Portland. The habits of the blue heron
were graphically described, a large part
of the paper being devoted to this inter
esting bird. A society that arouses en
thusiasm for out-of-door study of nature
and the wild things of our forests and
marshes deserves the encouragement of
the citizens of Portland. A wholesome
love of original Investigation in natural
science cannot fall to benefit any com
munity. Death of a Well-Known Grand Army
Man. Robert M. McMaster, a well-known
member of the G. A. R., died at his home
at Third and Montgomery streets early
this morning, after an Illness of several
months. Mr. McMaster came to Portland
In 1869, and had been continuously, up
to the time of his sickness, with the
hardware firm of Corbett & Falling. He
was born In Indiana 59 years ago, and
served throughout the Civil War, en
listing with the Thirty-third Indiana. f He
was mustered out a Lieutenant-Quartermaster.
Mr. McMaster leaves a widow
and two children, Mrs. H. C. Reck and
Claud G. McMaster.
Chinaman and His Chickens. As Duck
Back was hurrying past Sixteenth and
Irving streets last night, carrying four
chickens In a bag, a "cluck, cluck,"
caught Policeman Mallett's ear, and he
stopped the Chinaman to question him.
When Mallett proceeded to examine the
chickens Duck Back ran, and Mallett
pursued him. The Chinaman was gain
ing ground when the policeman fired one
shot in the air, and Duck Back stopped.
On the way to the police station the
Chinaman fought the men in the wagon.
The police are anxious to hear of peo
ple who have lost chickens.

Jabour, who managed the midway shows
at the Elks carnival In Portland last
year, writes to The Oregonian suggest

CIVILIZATION A HUMBUG.
Correspondent Compares Ancient
With, Modern Times.
PORTLAND. April"! (To the Editor.)
At the Ministerial Association's montniy
meeting of all the pastors of the "city last
Monday the discussion drifted into a gen
eral criticism of the public schools and
of the Portland High School in particu
lar. The exceptions taken were chiefly to
overloading the pupils with books and
studies, causing In many instances las
situde of body, talking In the sleep, nerv
ous prostration and broken health, in
this connection it may be asked whether
our present civilization, with Its educa
tional Ideals and methods. Is, after all,
a success. Solon, Themistocles, Pericles
and Demosthenes, Isocrates and Lysias,
Aristophanes and Menander, Alschylos,
Sophocles and Euripides, Phidias and
Praxiteles, Socrates and Plato, Thucydl
des and Xenophon wera 17 historic char
acters, distinguished for widely different'
achievements, .but eacli possessing the
broadest and most" consummate culture.
Npw let it be remembered that all these
noted men, under a former type of civi
lization, were produced In one town and
within a period of 300 years. Where in
modern times can' such Tesults be shown?
"At no time and place," says John Fiske,
"has there been even an approach to
such a fact as this."
What were the conditions under which
so many remarkable characters In one
place were produced? Certainly not from
books and what Is now known as literary
culture, but from Intercourse with the
facts of nature- and a life outdoors In the
brightest sunshine almost constantly. In
fact, the modern house, for either home or
school, with every crack and cranny se
curely stopped, was with them practically
unknOWn. At night they slept upon
couches plain and hard. The streets of
their town, Athens, were adorned at every
turn with statues of a design like the
Thompson fountain in Portland, In Itself
an educator of a pure and natural taste.
It Is a well-known fact that the lan
guage and tastes of these people, par
ticularly Plato and Lysias, were of the
highest order. These men lived in a time
when the finer beauties of expression,
both In language and art, were appre
ciated. Theirs was a mild, genial climate.
noted for the longevity of its Inhabitants.
They were specimens of the finest phys
ical development, both men and "women
dressing Inexpensively, but well. They
had no milliners' nor dressmakers' bills,
no evening parties, no exacting fashions,
no elegant furniture, no Journeys to the
crowded cities of Europe. Living then
was In all respects plain and simple. As
a consequence, they had no paupers, no
beggars and criminals to be supported by
the state, and no Mount Hoodlan burden
of taxation to support a, lot of state uni
versities and normals, all doing a full
share In creating a constantly growing
mendicant class. They were the greatest
commercial people of antiquity, though
the getting of property was not the chief
end of life. They had no commercial pan
ics, no Wall streets, no saloons, no poor
houses. Let it be remembered that we are
not speaking of a country town, but a
city ot nan a million souls.
They were on the whole the most highly
cultivated public that has ever existed,
but not in a modern book sense. Book
sense is not culture. The highest facul
ties may be developed without the aid of
books. Contact with nature and nersons
of exalted character and mind produce
the highest and richest Intellectual life.
This they had. Modern civilization Is a
humbug, because its Increasing output Is
insanity , mythomania, consumption,
drunkenness, dyspepsia and paralysis.
We are living a complex life, which puts
premature and excessive strain upon the
whole human organism. While we have
mastered the ancient scourges cholera,
smallpox and black death we have cre
ated many far more insidious and ruin
ous maladies of nervous origin. In our
progress we are losing that which Is after
all most valuable.
This constant tension, kept at the snap
ping point, crowding the Jostling young
girls up and 'down three or four flights
of stairs many times a. day, and then
requiring them to lug home a wheelbarrow-load
of books to be studied when
tney ought to be asleep, is disastrous.
This chronic state of hurry everywhere,
with its rage for accumulation and Its
resultant frauds in postal affairs and
Quartermaster's Department, and this ne
cessity for requiring every young man In
a place of trust to give bond for honesty,
are samples of our present civilization.
It may not sound well, coming from a
clergyman, but our modern civilization
has too much religion that is, too much
of the kind. Too much dogma, too much
sen-consciousness which serves only to
gall and worry, too much dark concep
tion of a devil, too many feverish doubts,
emotionally unhealthy Imagining, the des
tiny of the soul to hang upon what a
man may or may not believe. Modern
civilization Is a humbug.

ART INSTITUTE, TOO.
Suggestion as to Andrew Carnegie's
Conditional Gift of 100,000.
PORTLAND, AprH7.-(To the Edltor.)
The magnificent gift Mr. Carnegie has
offered to the City of Portland will
cause more than a ripple of interest. The
years of education, generous in character
though limited In scope, furnished by the
Portland Library Association; the broaded
work of recent date by the Portland Pub
lic Library, and the active work of the
Portland Woman's Club, which makes
It possible to accept the offer of Mr. Car
negie, have all tended toward the same
end, and the people of Portland are clam
oring for a public library that will meet
the needs of the many. There Is no need
to hesitate or modify conditional terms.
Surely there Is a site in our city for an
other building, such as Mr. Carnegie pro
poses to give us, if Portland makes room
for it. What an Ideal site is the center
of th second block of the south -park
row, just opposite the First Conerptratlnn-
al Church. It Is centrally located, quiet,
and convenient to all 'the higher schools;
and would have a plaza on elther'slde. As
for the library Itself the collection of new
books in the Public Library form a valu
able nucleus to which might be added, if
arrangements satisfactory to all parties
could be made, the books from the Li
brary Association, also the Wilson col
lection, and others as needed.
That fine building on Stark street, state
ly In Its classic beauty, Is just the home
for an art Institute, such as the City
of Portland should give to -her artists,
art students and art-loving public. Thl3
city has artists of whom she may well
be proud, and such an encouraging recog
nition of their profession -would be a
wholesome stimulus to still greater work.
The building Is none too large, none too
choice, none too beautiful for such a des
tiny. The collection of art treasures that
are now crowded on the upper floor of the
library building are a credit to any city,
and, properly arranged In spacious rooms,
furnish unique "educational privileges to
both old and young. The Art Associa
tion has wrestled bravely with the prob
lem that has been theirs ever since receiv
ing the rare collection of pictures given
by the Ladds.' They have struggled with
stupendous difficulties In trying to share
with the public the beauties of the gift.
To the young especially will this be of
inestimame value. The foundation for
education in lines of art is laid In the
primary grades of our public schools;
and the nature of Individual gifts, if gift
there is. Is descovered and directed. This
Is carried on by an efficient teacher in
the High School. Then, if a gifted or
ambitious student desires to advance In
any line of art he goes away from Port
land for Instruction.
With an art Institute of our own so
well equipped there would be no need of
this. Better still, many would como here
for advanced instruction and work, and
