Old-Time Sea Captain Notorious for
His Brutality to Those Under
One of the most Inhuman charac
ter In the history of navigation was
"liully" Wuterinun, a captain w ho com
manded u Hlilp between New York and
San Francisco year ago. HI treat
ment of the crews under hi command
were cluslc of cruelty. On one of hi
voyages he lei'. New York with a crew
of 42 men, und by the time the vewel
reached Sun Franclm o 17 of them had
been shot by Watermun, most of theru
futully, hi excuse being that they
refused to obey orders.
When the ship returned to New York
the authorities were waiting for Wuter
tnun. but he learned of his danger and
contrived Id escape. He landed on
the Jersey coust, and the ship was un
loaded and cleared In the name of the
first officer. When the vessel left
New York for Its return trip the sher
iff came uboard and announced his
determination to stay there until he
found Waterman. When Sandy Hook
was reached the acting captain told
the sheriff that he was about to steer
for Cape Horn and advised hi return
ing to New York by tie pilot boat.
He did so, and soon afterward Water
man boarded from a coasting schooner.
He never returned to New York, but
died In California.

"Acknowledging the Corn."
The expression "to acknowledge
the corn," meaning "to confess to a
churge or imputation," had Its origin
In the misfortunes of a certain up
country gentleman years ago In New
Orleuns. This individual urrlved In
that city with two llutbouts, one luden
with corn and the other with potatoes.
His first night there he entered into a
disastrous gambling . game during
which he lost all his money und finally
put up his two bout-loads and lost
Heturnlng to the wharf after the
gume he discovered that the boat
bearing the corn had suuk, und was
u total loss. The next morning the
winner arrived at the wharf claim
lug his winnings. The unlucky voyager
said to him, "Stranger, I acknowledge
the corntake it ; but the potatoes you
can't have, by thunder 1"
"Golf" Comes From Dutch Word.
Why i.l tle Ulieli;.,l jScotlisa tj,mifc
uow so popular In this country among
those aole to support the extensive
links retpihed, ciued "golf" The
unsucr is to bo loi.nu in a letter writ
ten by Sir Walter Seott, In 1JS12:
"1 hIioiiM doubt very much that the
word -golf I dorlu'd trom the verb
'gowliy or to strike hind. On tho
contrary, 1 conceive that the verb it
self Is 'derived from the game, antl
to 'gowff is to strike sluup and
strong, as In that amusement. If I
were to hazard a conjecture, I should
think that the name 'golf Is derived
from the same Teutonic expression
from which the Hermans have 'colb.'
a club, and the Low Dutch 'kolff,'
which comes very near the sound of
golf.' K I am right, tho word 'golf'
signifies 'the game of the club.'"
Monmouth A textbook entitled
"Supervision and the Improvement of
Teaching," written by Will H. Bur
ton, former instructor of psychology
in the Oregon Normal school and now
a member of the faculty ofWashing
ton college, Whitman, has been ord
ered eliminated from use in the nor
mal school by action of the execu
tive committee of the board of re
gents. The objections voiced by J. .A.
Churchill, superintendent of public
instruction, and Miss Cornelia Mar
vin, state librarian, both members of
the board of regents, are based on
two paragraphs which, they contend,
cast a reflection on the late J. H.
Ackerman, normal school president.
The book is dedicated to Professor
Thomas H. Gentle, director of the
normal training schools, and a por
tion contains methods and . plans
which were worked out by him and
given to his students in lectures pre
vious to the publication of the text.
The two regents voiced objection
also to a statement in the preface
which avoids reference to the Oregon
Normal school and refers to Mr.
Gentle as "residing near Independ
The underlying cause of the oppo
sition to the book is said to be a
bitter feeling toward Mr. Burton on
the part of several regents due, it
is said, to a dispute between him and
Mr. Ackerman several years ago
when Mr. Burton was instructor of
psychology in the normal school.
Mr. Gentle was a close friend of Mr.
Burton. ' i ; ,:J.
At the same time Mr. Gentle has
said he always enjoyed cordial rela
tions with Mr. Ackerman, although
they frequently differed in their
When word was, received that the
regents had forbidden .use of the
book, students of the general methods
class assembled in the training school
auditorium, where the situation was
explained by Mr. Gentle and J. S.
Landers, president of the normal
school and successor to the late J.
H. Ackerman. A strong feeling of
resentment against the regents'
action was expressed by some stu
dents, who were, however, dissuaded
from petitioning the regents in favor
of the book.
Asked for a statement regarding
his views President Landers declined!
When Mr. Gentle appeared . at
chapel last Friday ' morning for , the
first time since the order eliminating
the book was received, he was
greeted by prolonged applause from
the student body.
Student leaders said a resolution
was in preparation with a view to
indorsing the policies of Mr. Gentle.
They said the sentiment of the stu
dents seemed to be that a disagree
ment between Mr. Ackerman and Mr.
Burton, neither of whom is connected
with the institution, should not pre
vent their taking advantage of a val
uable book. One hundred and fifty
copies at $2.50 a copy had been pur
chased by the students.
This was said to be the first time
that normal school regents in Oregon
had interfered in the selection of - a

"The Salvation Army" taught its great lesson of Ameri
canism on the firing lines of France. It is carrying-on the
same ideals during this 1 trying period of reconstruction.
This is accomplished to a great degree by its method
of applying 'practical Christianity.' By extending a
helping hand in illness, by providing food, clothing, fuel
and the innumerable other means of helpfulness to
stricken humanity, regardless "of race, creed or color,
The Salvation Army naturally draws to it the people of
