who Is not unworthy of the Illustrious
example of fearlessness of spirit set by
them. Lieut. James lackland was also
an ancestor or Mrs. McU'an, as was
also Deputy Governor llurgess, of
colonial Muryland history.
Mrs. Mclean was educated at what
was at tho time known as tho Woman's
College. She was graduated at the uge
of fourteen, receiving a diploma which
Is one of her proud possessions to-day.
She continued her studies In history,
music and the languages until her mar

lawyer In New York city.

One of tho moflo serious results of
the Pacific roast earthquake disaster
is the destruction of Stanford Univer
sity, near Palo Alto. More than $30,
noo.ltfiO had bi:en expended on the
buildings alone, and the damage has
been co severe thot It will mean prnc
tlcolly an entire loss. This group of
builiiliiKH was planned and built on a
prearranged scheme and has boon ac
count. -d the finest group or structures
fur educational purposes on this con
tinent, If not in the entire world. The
buildings were all In the picturesque
Spanish mission stylo, with the arch as
t1 1 principal architectural feature. This
fact, which was so much a source of
beauty, lias probably been tho largest
source of destruction, because-, while
the arch undisturbed Is one of the most
secure of building forms, when thrown
out of plumb It must fall.
IKKLPAKAIU.i: AItT LOSS.
The main buildings aro built around
an Inner quadrangle, which contains
the oitlces of administration and some
class rooms. These buildings are ail
one story In height. The outer quad

architectural features of the univer
sity, bus ob main points of Interest

Perhaps it may bo said that the lot's
of tho buildings and equipment, in
spite of their great value, is the least
par t of the disaster, because since the
university was started on Senator
Stanford's Palo Alto ranch It has been
a marvelous incentive toward higher
linatlon on the Pacific coast. No:
only has It gone ahead with great
strides on Its own account, but it has
tarried the State University at Ilerke-
ley along with It In healthy rivalry,
until the two gave an equipment for
higher education In California that was
not rivaled by that of any other State,
MKS. STANFORD'S GENEROSITY.
If it were not for the indomitable
spirit which seems to have enabled the
university to triumph over many diffi
culties It might be said that its career
hus been particularly Ill-starred. Foi
In spite of Its great endowment, said
to exceed that of any other Institution
of learning in the country, It has been
unfortunate from the beginning. Vex
atious litigation arose at the time of
Senator Stanford 8 death. In 1SU1, and
the claims put forward by those who
had received personal bequests, to have
them settled first, seriously impaired
the finances of the university because
it was impossible to realize upon its
property. After that the Pacific rail
road suits tied up the university money
for a couple of years, until tho Su
promo Court decided in favor of the
Stanford estate. Hut Mrs. Stanford
with wonderful courage and singleness
of purpose, unselfishly turned all of her
property over to the university, saw
it through its crises until her recent
tragic death In Honolulu, when the
Lola ml StanTord University was again
thrown In despair. Its present de
struction by the earthquake seems to
come ns a culminating disaster, yet It
is probable that it will rise again su
perior to the conditions which seem
In league against It, though it has
practically been set back to an abso
lutely new beginning.
It is already understood that plans
nave been considered for tho rebuild'
lng of tho university, as the statement
has been made by President David
Starr Jordan to the students of the
university, asking them to remain and
aid In bringing order out of the chaos
resulting from the earthquake. Pres
ident Jordan has been mentioned to
succeed the late Professor Langley as
Secretary to the Smithsonian Institute
In Washington, but those who are in
a position to know state that It Is be
lieved that he will remain at the helm
of the Stanford University and Bee
that the magnificent buildings are

the young roan or woman is likely to
look upon department service as a
beautiful life of "Do Little and Draw
Your Pay" and watch the passing
show. But it has Its seamy side and
carries both advantages and disadvan
tages in its train.
There is the danger of fossilization:
of becoming a leaf in the sere; with
energies gone and aspiration dead.
This danger is great and seems almost
inevitable to him who has many years
of service in the departments. Though
all will not agree with tho Hon. Champ

Three Men of Navy at Risk of Their

to Prevent Disaster.
Through the destructive agency of
dynamite the section of San Francisco
still standing was saved at a cost of
more than a million dollars. This pow
erful compound was scientifically
wielded by three men of the U. S. Navy,
sent by Admiral McCalla from Mare
Island with orders to check the confla
gration at any cost of life or property
With them they brought a ton and a
half of gun cotton, the terrific power
of which was equal to the maniacal de
termination of the fire.
Capt. MacBride was in command of
the squad. Chief Gunner Adamson
placed the charges, and the third gun
ner set them off.
The thunderous detonations to which
the terrified city listened all that dread
ful Friday night meant the salvation of
many lives. A million dollars' worth
of property, noble residences and
worthless shacks alike, were blown to
drifiing dust, but that destruction
broke the spirit of the fire and sent the
raging flames cringing back over their
own charred path.

ruins burned, It was but feebly. From
Golden Gate avenue on the north the
fire crossed the wide street in but one
place the Claus Spreckels' residence,
on the corner of California street.
There the flames were writhing up the
walls before the dynamiters could
reach it; yet they made their way to
the foundations, carrying their explo
sives despite the furnace-like heat. The
' charge had to be placed so swiftly and
the fuse lit In such a hurry that the
explosion was not quite successful from
the trained viewpoint of the gunners.
But though the walls still stood. It was
only an empty victory for the fire, as
bare brick and smoking ruins are poor
food for flames.
