Putting Homeless Dogs to a Painless Death
THIS IS THE SEASON AT THE PORTLAND ESTRAY POUND
FOR THE REMOVAL OF VAGRANT CANINES
O YOU Trant a dog?
Do you tvant a setter, a spaniel, a.
shepherd, a lap-dog. or a Tatch-dog,
cr a common yellow cur?
If you do, and are not particular about
pedigrees, run out to f the- city estray
pound, on Sixteenth street, near Madison,
In Goose Hollow: There you will find ter
riers and hounds, pug pups and mastiffs
In mingled profusion. By paying the clfy
license of ?2, you will not only get your
pick of the dogs, but will thereby save
the life of one of the unfortunate crea
tures. ' .
Just now there are 40 dogs of all breeds,
varieties, temperament and Elzes awaiting
cither an owner or death. One of the two
must claim them. For they are vagrants
just the same as the man who looks out
from a set of bars In some? jail because
he would -not earn a decent livelihood
is a vagrant- The only -difference is that
the law deals a little more severely -with
the canine vagrant than, with the vagrant
of the human species, who in many In
stances, perhaps, Is much., less worthy of
Of course, the distinction -Is -unavoidable,
for ownerless dogs must not be allowed at
large, nor can any' municipality So ex
pected to support u lot, of valueless ca
nines through a lifetime of- imprisonment,
such sentiment as that would "be costly
and Inane. Just the same as It would be
if society should employ radical measures
in extirpating its valueless members by
process of hanging or asphyxiation.
So the untaxed dog must go! -He must
be gathered' in by-some alert dogcatcher,
tossed In a cage' Wth dozens of others of
his kind, ' kept ' through a short period of
imprisonment and then blotted out of ex
istence, without the formality of a. trial.
As; air cad j- stated, -there are some 4Q
victims of this arrangement now await
ing their fate. Gaged a dozen to a cell,
they await their Inevitable, unavoidable
doom. Perhaps they understand it Per
haps they do not. According to the hu
man estimate of their intelligence, dogs
cannot calculate of the future, being
guided by Instincts alone. It is not so
Improbable that these same instincts
bring them forebodings of the calamity
in store for them In a few days when they
will be taken in batches to a big sealed
tank where volumes of stifling gas will
send them to the final sleep even while
A visit to the estray pound is a sadden
ing experience, especially if it happens to
be slaughtering day. "When I islted the
place a few days ago, it was such an
occasion. The dogs had ben given their
breakfast, and some were taking a morn
ing -siesta, while others were playfully
biting at each other. f
As I walked among the cages with the
keeper, several of the animals pressed
their noses against the bars and stared
expectantly as if in hopes of recognizing
a belated owner who had deserted them
to this unwbolesomo company of dogs.
There was one particularly fine Gordon
setter, which was busy -wrestling with a
big, balry cur of no breed as I came in.
He left off his play at once and pressed
hard against the bars until, seeing it was
not any one known t him he turned
away. Not to resume playing, though,
but to' slinks 'dejectedly into a corner of
ihs big cage and llo down.
5y different routes do the dogs arrive at i
the unhappy "plight of imprisonment in
the pound. Some are big, worthless' curs
that grew up wild and are lucky that
their existence was not cut short long
ago. Others are dogs which have had
good homes, but In the pctulancy of their
old ages, when their owners could no
longer keep them with safety, they have
been turned Into the streets for tho dog
catcher. Then there are the pathetic
cases where poverty renders it Impossible
for the owner to pay the yearly tax. The
dog happens to come to the notice of the
dog-catcher and Is. caught up. 1 3Iany pa
thetic instances f this kind came tc the
attention of the pound-keepers.
Recently a poorly clad and dirty urchin
appeared at the pound and asked for the
"Mister, has you got Gyp in here?" he
asked, timidly, but with great earnest
ness and "anxiety, in his- tones.
"Who's Gyp." asked the keeper.
"He'3 my dorg, an he ain't been borne,
not for a long time," said the boy, sor
rowfully. "If Gyp is here, have you got $2 to pay
to et him out?" asked the keeper in business-like
A shadow overspread the boyish coun
tenance, and he stood twisting at his
faded cap for some time before speaking.
"Jfo. sir," he said Anally, vdth childish
frankness. "Pa says he ain't got no
money for dogs, but I wants Gyp back,
because he ain't done nothla' wrong.
Pleaso, can't I see If he's in here?" he
added. Imploringly, and no one could have
"All right, you can see if be is here,"
said the keeper as he led the way
among the cages of dogs.
Suddenly a sharp burst of gleeful
barking filled the corridor. An Ill-kept
cur in one of the smaller cages had
seen the boy. The barking was min
gled with a gladsome expression from
the. childish lips as a tiny hand went
through the bars from one side and a
long red tongue came through from the
Tho keeper went outside for some
Some time later a boy and a dog left
the .estray pound together. It was hard
to tell which was the 'happier.
At 10 o'clock on the morning of my
visit the keeper announced that the
striking of tho hour was the death
knell of 15 of the dogs. They had been
in imprisonment a couple of weeks or
more, had been advertised in the col
umns of the press, .and since no claim

expense of feeding them could not be
Their death is arranged so as to be
as painless, as possible and, in fact, the
system entails very little suffering. Tho

made more stifling with a volume of

to be scoffed at.
"Come on, doggie," said the keeper,
pleasantly, snapping his fingers and
leading the way towards the fatal tank.
The good-natured hound followed at

although a few sniffed suspiciously
about them and would not go until
they were driven.

M EW CjCRK GRAND OPERA SEASON OPENS
Brilliant Performances of Aide and Parsifal Are Attended, by New York's Six Hundred
EW YORK, Nov. 28. (Special Corre
spondence.) The opening of the
opera season is perhaps tho most in
teresting feature of the musical and. dra
matic life in New York this week. It Is
customary to make each season more Im
portant than the one before when you talk
about it; but In point of fact the audi
ence that assembled on Monday night to
witness "Alda" was perhaps the most
dazzling that ever assembled on a first
night in that House. It will be remem
bered that this Is the second season of
opera under Mr. Conried, and he is to be
congratulated upon, the brilliancy undeS'
which, berenters the spirit of the times as.
well -as of the art. -The cast was Teally
remarkablei and is herewith given:
Alda., ...Mme. Emma. Same

Radfimts Mr. Caruso
Ajnonasro ..Mr. Scott!

The reappearance of Emma Eames was
naturally a great event, for this American
woman holds a social position In New
York as enviable as that held by Mme.
Sembrlch. which la saying a good deal,
Caruso, too, was the Idol of the hour, to
say nothing of Plancon and ScottL Miss
Walker, as Amnerls, scored a tremend
ous success, and taking It altogether, it
was one of the greatest productions of
"Alda" that the patrons of the Metropol
itan Opera-House have ever seen.
Of the audience, there Is little that can
be said, because, In order to give any
idea of the glare, the glitter and the
splendor, It would take columns, and it
would Include the names of all of the
Four Hundred and the additional few
who have swelled the number to ' little
less than GOO. The rest of the house was
given over to such people as are 7ess
known In financial circles, but quite as
well, if not better, known in art. Among
the notable people In the audience wero
Miss Alice Roosevelt, who was the guest
of Mrs. William Travcrs, In the William
K. Vanderbllt box, and the Duchess of
Manchester, who, with her husband, tho
Duke, were among the guests of J. Henry
Smith. A notable feature of the gowning
of the women present would make it seem
as though white were to "he the reigning
color, as It was almost without exception
the exclusive cholco of the leaders of
After the production of "Alda" on the
first night, the most exciting event was
the "Parsifal" revival on Thursday hlght,
with Nordlca as Kundry. It was a beauti
ful performance, one In which all possible'
care had been lavished upon the smallest;
detail, and now we may be able to find
out the' attitude of New Yorkers to tbe
great Wagnerian music drama when tho
fad side of It has become a thing of tho
past. It may be some satisfaction to
those who marveled at tho shortening or
the season by Henry W. Savage to noto
that $10 seats were being sold on tho side
walk for S3 just beforo tbe rise of the
curtain, and for 52 Immediately after. I
will further state that there is a general
reduction In the 510 seats to 57. This has
been effected through the medium of the
Brooklyn Institute, which has announced
to its patrons that seats for the "Parsifal"
production at tho Metropolitan House
would be sold to members of that organ
ization at 57, instead of 510, and a foot
note stated that It was unnecessary to
shovr members'' coupons to secure the re
duction. . The production of Parsifal was a
superb one and Nordlca's delineation
of Kundry was one which will bear
comparison with that of any ono who
has ever attempted tho role since its
first production. It may be remembered
that tho character of Kundry represents
woman In a state of utter uncouthnesa.
savago and wild, after which she rlse3
to a creature of great beauty to tempt
Parsifal and to awaken In him hla
sense of manhood out of the "guileless
fool" as which he Is first presented.
There is no doubt that Nordlca has
studied the character very closely for
she shows as much thought "as dramatln
ability, and vocally of -courso ahe Is
superb, her voice being fresher and
more beautiful than ever. She Is a tre
mendous addition to the lorces of the
bers of the cast were, the same as thosn
who presented Parsifal last year, of,

It may be that some, will remember
the mysterious death of Mrs. Ellen
.Gore in Paris a 'few' months agof. That
, this should have-been the ralson-detre-
for' publishing her personal letter
'seems almost beyond sanity as well as
bejfond decency. There IP nothing .to
be .gained from Mra, Gore's letters and
nothing that will throw any light upon
the student life in Paris. As a monu
ment to her memory it is a dismal fail
ure, and the note of warning to tho
public Is conspicuously absent. I have
too often made manifest the danger of'
rushing promiscuously to Europe, to
New York or elsewhere for the purpose
The life of a student Is beset with
Innumerable as well as unmentionable
dangers, and when Mabel Wagenalls,
who writes a preface to these letters, 1
says: "There was one final fact which,
to those who knew, left no shadow of
doubt as to Mrs. Gore's purity of life
and purpose she was studying tht
piano with Moszkowskl," It makes on
marvel how a publishing house can
exist on the tace of the earth that will
publish such dribble.
It would be Interesting to know
whether Mr. Moszkowskl is responsible
for the morals of everybody who
studies with him. It would also Tie In
teresting to know what degree of hero
worship Miss Wagnalls Is sufferlhc;
from to pin her faith so upon any man
that this should goforth as guarantee
fqr the morals of very woman who
comes In contact with him. When pub
Ushers accept twaddle of this kind It
is not difficult to understand that they
have no time and no money to waste
upon such matters as appeal to people's
common sense and which really . are rep
resentative of time, study and understanding-.
The volume "a called "Your
IiovlngNell." and if anything is worse
than tbe stuff it contains It Jn tho title.
The tragedy of Mrs. Gore- ia worth
telling. She was one -of hundreds of
women who, craving notoriety and a-
llfe of excitement this has 'no relation
to morals sought It through the study
of music It is probable ber friends feel
that sho would have accomplished
great things had she lived.
It is just as likely, however, that she
would ' have followed In the footsteps
of thousands of men and women who go
abroad for study and who cannot bat
tle against tho hardships of study, to
say nothing of the hardships of life.
When people get away from the glamor
of all this and get down to common
sense they will understand that 99 out
of every 100 who attempt to study
should be kept out of it, and the chances
for that ono are as much against him
as In his favor. If this were not the
case, the concert halls would be full of
great artists; there would bo few in
efficient teachers, and music would ex
ist upon an entirely different plane No
ono need bo told that those who are
really great are. few and far between.
It costs much moro than talent to
A gem In a literary way has just fallen
into my hands. It is a publication of
Brentano'3. entitled "The Florentines,"
by Maurice V. Samuels, formerly of San
Francisco. It Is small wonder that the
writer succumbed to the charms of Bcn
venuto Cellini, who has furnished many
themes for both poetry and music This
very Temarkable Florentine who lived In
the early 15C0 has been Immortalized In
verse Innumerable times, but It will be
difficult to, find a more readable and more
delightful presentation than the one by
Mr. Samuels, whose talent for blank
verse la quite on a par with his ability
to embody In it atmosphere, color and all
those subtleties which mako for literary
excellence Perhaps it will be regarded as
underrating the volume Itsolf to say that
the writer's dedication la one of the
strongest bits In the entire work. It is
well worth the quotation:

Bispham will give his last recital on Mon

an extended tour.
This series of song recitals has ben In
a way the most artistic thing, which Mr.
Bispham has. ever given us, which is say
ing a good deal, as ho rarely makes an
appearance of any sort wherein he is not
of utmost benefit to those interested in
music or in its study. I have often dwelt
upon Mr. Bispham as an artist, but t
never hear him without realizing what a
tremendous value be is to those who org
studying music, whether vocal or instru
mental. If this remarkable man. were ut
terly devoid of voice, he would still be
one of tho greatest artists before the ptfb-?

the subtle context of. songs and -his keen,

and Invaluable Importance. His voice Is

head was covered down almost to jay eyebrows. I had to wear my hat all

a pin-head to as large as a silver dollar. A white, crusty scab would form
and itch, and words cannot express how I suffered for fifteen years. I
tried many doctors and all kinds of treatments, but could get no help,
and thought there was no hope for me. While in Michigan last summer
a friend told me to get Cuticura. I got a cake of Cuticura Soap, and a box
of Cuticura Ointment, and in three days my head was as clear as it ever
was. I applied the ointment night and morning, also taTdng a hot bath
three times a week, and using the ointment freely after the bath. After
using one cake of soap and two boxes of ointment I was completely cured,
