The Twentr-trinth Ait of April w a no
tab If day in tlw history of ta May Memor
ial Church in Syracuse, as it is he anni
retwiT of the installation of the He?.
Samuel R- Calthrop. I). !.. the eminent
divine who to long nas winuteml to litem
piniuattr as pastor of the Church.
Ih. Cahhrop was bora in England and
nonred his preparatory scholastic training
at St. Paul' School, London. Entering
Trinitr Colltjge, Cambridge, he soon became
a bright figure in thai brilliant coterie of
scholars, literary men and wits that followed
in the traditions of Macaulay and his associ
ates at the university, in the middle of the
century he visited Syracuse and received
his first impressions of the young city that
early a score of yean later he was to choose
as his home and in which his labors have
been ao long and effective. The master It
pulpit addresses of Dr. Calthrop have had
their fundamental drawn from the deepest
research. His people have been instructed
by him, not only in things spiritual, but in
the element! of the broadest culture, in lit
erature, in art and in science. His young
men have been taught a avascular system of
niorsiiiy. In theae and in many otlwr ways
has he endeared himself to his congregation,
whkh is one of the most highly cultured
nd wealthy in th city.
Dr. Calthrop has a striking personality.
To the eye he is a most picturesque figure.
His head and face, framed in luxuriant mas
ses of siiky, snow while hair and beard, are
of the type of Bryant and Longfellow. Al
though over seventy years old, his rather
spare figure is firm and erect, and every
movement is active and graceful. His whole
life long he has bees an ardent admirer and
promoter of athletic sports, and even at ha
advanced see. plays tennis with all the vigor
and skill of a young man. To Syraensana,
perhaps, this remarkably versatile man is
most widely known, apart from his protes
aion, gs a scientist.
On a bright April morning a reporter fol
lowed the winding driveway that enmng
anrart' the bill leads to Calthrop Lodge, an
ohl-fiuhioaedt red brick mansion, surrounded
by a grove of oaks and chestnuts. Wearing
a' black skull cap and a black eoat of semi
rJencal cut, the master of Calthrop Lodge
graciously received the reporter who called
to inquire about bis health, for, though
manfully repressing all possible evidences
et" bis suffering. Dr. Calthrop for many
venrs Sag been the victim of a distressing
affliction. iPttil by fortunate chance he was
led to take the remedy which has effectually
.cured him. "
During more than half of his pastorate m
vra.w. I- Calthrop has been troubled
with rheumatism, and at intervals hesufieml
excruciating agony from it At times the
pain was so graai as to prevent him irm
walking. Uiuw rentsdies were tried wiio
rat sseeest, and h and his friends had given
p hope of permanent ear or of ntnre
than temporary reiwf when he took the
preismtion that drove the distaw completely
from his synem.
1b a letter written to the editor of The
JPfrinaa Scm, of Syracuse, fast year, Dr.
rahhrop told of bis affliction and id cure.

Since writing this letter Dr. (Calthrop has
not bad any vuits from he old enemy mid
is even more cordial now in hif recommen
dation of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills than be
was then. To the reporter he said :
"I id continually recomnu'iiding Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to acquaintances and

with rheumatism or locomotor ataxia,
"Pink Pills," continued Dr. Calthrop,
"are the best thing of the kind I know ot

pretty well what the pills contain, and I
consider it an excellent prescription. It is

but be would not give it in such a compact
form and so convenient to take,
"I recommend the pills highly to all who
are troubled with rhenmatisni, locomotor

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People

"I reckon that's about it," returned
the second, glancing at the others.
"I am glad to say, sir, that I have a
better opinion of his courage,'' said
Clarence, lifting his hat to the dead
body, as he turned away.
Yet he was conscious of no remorse,
concern or even pity in his act. Per
haps this was visible in his face, for the
group appeared awed by this perfection
of the duelist's coolness, and even re
turned his formal parting salutation
with a vague and timid respect. He
thanked the deputy, regained the hotel,
saddled hiB horse and galloped away.
But not toward the raneho. Now that
he could think of his future, that had
no place in his reflections; eves the epi
sode of Busy was forgotten in the new
and strange conceptions of himself and
his irresponsibility which had come up
on htm with the killing of Pinckney and
the words of his second. It was his
dead father who had stiffened his arm
and directed the fatal snot! It was the
hereditary influence which others had
been so quick to recognize that had
brought about this completing climax
of his trouble Uiw else could he ac
count for it that he, a conscientious,
peaceful, sensitive man, tender and for
giving as he bolieved himself to be,
aould now feel so little sorrow or com
punction for his culminating act? He
had read of successful duettos who
were haunted by remorse for their first
victim; who retained a terrible con
sciousness of the appearance of the
dead man; he had no such feeling; he
had anly a grim contentment in the
wiped out inefficient life, and contempt
for the limp and helpless body. He sud
denly recalled the callousness as a boy,

surely It was the cold blood of his lather
influencing him ever thus. What had
he to do with affection, with domestic
happiness, with the ordinary ambitions
of man's life, whose blood was frozen at
its sflurcp! Tfet even with this very
thought some pnee mfire the aid incon
sistent tenderness e had as a boy lav
ished upon the almost unknown and
fugitive father who had forsaken his
childish companionship, and remem
bered him only by secret gifts. He re
membered how he bad worshiped him
even while the pious padres at San Jose
.were endeavor! fig to elimipst this ter
rible poison from his blood and combat
but hereditary instinet in his cqBtlicts
vsith his school fellows, And it was a
part of his inconsistensy that riding
away from the scene ot nts nrsx unwa
shed, his eyes were dimmed with moist
ure, not for the victim, but for the one
being whom he believed had impelled
him to the act

night passage across the dark waters of

ture was still unsettled.
As he wound around the crest of Rus
sian hill and looked down again upon
the awakened city he was startled to
see that it was fluttering and streaming
with bunting! From every publie
building apd hotel; from the roofs of
private houses, and even the windows
of lonely dwellings Sapped and waved
the striped and starry banner. The
steady breath of the sea carried it out
from masts and yards of ships at their
wharves from the battlements of the
forts at Alcatez and Verba liuena. He
remerflbered that the ferrymen bad told
him that tne news itomrunoHmterw
swept the city with a convulsion of pa
triotic sentiment and that there was
no doubt that the state was saved to
the union. He looked down upon it with
haggard and bewildered eyes and then
a strange gasp and fullness of his
throat! For afar a solitary bugle had
blew the "reveille" at fort Alcatrez!

three inscriptions on its shell, which
show that it is n earing thtf century

' The first inscription was dated "St

At a wedding tn one of the mideaat
cities, just before the entrance of the
bride, the room burst into a flood of
light from the numerous multi-colored
electric lamps hidden among the dee
orations. The entrance of the bridal
couple was signalised by the auto
matic ringing of electrical bells and
playing of electrical musical instru
mcnts. During the wedding breakfast
after the first eonrse, the light faded,
and then suddenly there glowed illumi
nations from a swarm of electric lamps.
Hidden among the masses of flowers,
glowing from the hearts of jellies and
from translucent vases it seemed as if
the genii of the lower world were every
where at work.
In this magical entertainment it fol,

be left out Ia her hair gleamed an
