Romance That Lasted Twenty Years
NEW YORK.—A love story that
would delight the heart of a novel-
ist ended and began again at 170 West
tfeventy-thlrd street a few days ago,
when Henry H. T. lieekman of the
old Knickerbocker family of that name,
wedded Bessie Haynea Adams, the girl
he wanted to marry 20 years ago.
Mr. lieekman, who has been for
some years a silent partner of the law

head, Is one of the wealthiest of New
Yorkers, with several houses abroad.

friends he would never have bought so
much as a shingle In foreign parts ex-
cept for the fact that when he waB
20 years younger he wooed and won
and then lost MIbs Adams In New
The wedding performed In Miss
Adams' apartments the other day was
practically settled years ago. at the
time Mr. lieekman quit Rutgers col-
lege as president and valedictorian of
his class. On the very eve, according
to the reports, bis mother set herself
to break off the match, ana succeeded.
ThU blighting of his romance is said
to have made a temporary misan-
thrope out of Mr. lieekman. For years
afterward he toured Europe aimlessly,
then settled In Paris, came back to
New York, became again a rover and
finally settled down to the law in
Paris as silent member of Col. Jay's
law Arm Just about the time the fa-
mous Fair will case came up.
It Is said that the brilliant line of
evidence produced by Mr. Heekman

A year ago he controlled It. In De-

that the latter part of December, 1908,
Hawley disposed of his control of thf

And now Hawley has used the pro

Leaders of Society Fight Vivisection
EMPHATIC measures which will
make the welkin ring have been
decided upon by the Antlvivisection
society. Among Its patronesses are
Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish, Mrs. Frederick
W. Vanderbllt. Mrs. Payne Whitney,
Mrs. Elsie French Vanderbllt, Mrs.
John Jacob Altor. Mrs. Elisha Dyer,
Mrs. E. Tiffany Dyer. Miss Anna Mor-
gan. Mrs. I^evl P. Morton and Mrs.
H. H. Rogers.
The women Intend that the cause of
animals, helpless and dumb, which are
submitted to cruelty In the name of
science, shall be heard in every quar-
ter of the city.
The suggestion has been made that
the organization take a leaf from the
book of the suffragettes and send its
speakers out to speak from carriages
and automobiles at the street corners.
Mrs. Diana Helals, the president, said
this procedure would be thoroughly
considered by the executive commit-
"We have Just reached a stage,"
said she. "when it Is found necessary
to crystallr.e the public sentiment
which we know to be In our favor,
and we shall adopt as energetic and
forceful methods as we know how to
employ. We have presented our case
from the scientific point of view and
have adduced all the arguments.
"Cruelty to the helpless Is cowardice.
There Is an occasional misunderstand-
ing as to the attitude of the society
upon the subject of vivisection. We
have from the very first advocated
only restrictive measures. All our ef-
forts have been directed toward a hu-

Real Count on Matrimonial Market
FLUTTER, fair feminine hearts! A
count, a real French count, Is the
latest offering of the Gotham matri-
With a background of a wine In-
crusted chateau and ancestral acres,
grasping in one hand his patent of
nobility and in the other his birth cer-
tificate. Count Jean Marcel Peyrgne de
Pussy has offered himself a cheerful
sacrifice on the altar of matrimony
and mortgages, the latter an inherit-
ance from his distinguished father.
The announcement of the count's
willingness to annex the asset of an
American bride to offset the inherited
liabilities of a French ancestor was
made the other day through the
count's attorney, Nathan G. Gold-
berger. The count, at the Hotel Wei-
• 2 000 ooo
lington, refused to be seen. Only
stern necessity finally Induced the
count to consent to his attorney's plea
that publicity was necessary, but after
spending five fruitless and exhaustive
months In privately seeking the for-
tunate woman on whom to bestow his
hand and title, the count was brought
to see that the American way of doing
business requires that he should ad-
vertise his wants.
In order that the fair one of his
choice may not be deceived as to the
true condition of his heart, aud Inci-
dentally in order that his attorney
would not be bothered by applicants
who have not the necessary qualifi-
cations. the count has let it be known
that his dowry requirements range
from three-quarters of a million to a
limitless beyond. Added to this, ap-
plicants must be refined. Intelligent

berger Into its legal phraseology,

OLDEST HI II MERICft
Escaped Terrors of Many Winters
S MUCH mischief has been done by the doctrinaire in the
education of the negro as in his attempt to thrust polities
upon him. I should like to submit the whole question of
negro education anew to experiment.
It goes without saying that right habits are the first
tiling for the negro, such as thrift, love of home, ol>edience to
law, kindliness toward one's neighbor, and general reliability.
We must recognize that the negro just now is of more con-
cern than either politics or social identity with the Saxon.
I would converge, therefore, all the energies of education upon
the training of the negro in these basal lessons of life. Can it be done?
The answer will depend upon our faith in human nature and the power
of truth to develop man's capacity, and upon our trust in love as the
supreme force operating in human progress. 1 never falter in my belief
that the negro race can advance in character and in social efficiency.
There have been some signal surprises in races, of late. Witness the
Japanese, the Hungarians, and Finns.
The negro problem in 1801 had simply two end9. But to-day it is
triangular. Then it wa9 simply northern opinion against southern opin-
ion. A new factor has arisen within the past 40 years, negro opinion.
The negro race is becoming conscious, has developed a leadership of
its own, is analyzing its life and projecting its own ideals. More and
more we must reckon with negro opinion of the negro problem. The
African race in America is no longer to be regarded aj headless.
Moralization covers the structural factors in the making of the
negro race. If this be the right view, then religious education holds
the key to the situation. It must inform the church, charge the school
with the forces of light and love, exorcise the politician and the press
of hysterics, and beget sane public opinion upon the race issue.
As to racial adjustment, can religious education reduce friction,
teach to "live and let live," and, in a word, produce racial tolerance?
Racial prejudices spring out of racial differences, p>.3*8ical and mental.
Ihe only resource is to find an agency that can generate sympathy to
oiiset prejudice. Such is the task of religious education, vibrant with
moral energy and masterful in its purpose, "lieligious" must not be here
narrowly defined. It must be broad as life and penetrative as love.

There is, now, more disease among chil-
dren than was ever the case in the past, and
as a result of this, the molecular structure
of the teeth is spoiled as the teeth become
formed. The perfect tooth, without fis-
sures, or clefts, or pits, is rarely found, ex-
cept among children who have been very
Diet I carefully watched during their years of
rearing. Faulty molecular structurt; of the
teeth is accentuated by the mischievous
dietary of the children, and the more de-
fective the enamel, in point of superficial
condition, the more predisposed is the
tooth to attract into the pits, or fissures,
those bacterial elements which eventually j *oduce dental caries, or rot-
tenness. Of all the foods which have a bad effect on the teeth, starch and
sugar foods are the worst.
Eat for breakfast, bacon, or bacon and eggs, baked or toasted bread,
fresh fruit, and only drink tea or coffee when you have finished your meal,
not during its course. For lunch or dinner, a meat of some sort, followed
by a sweet pudding (if you must), and then fruit, the reason for which
will be presently explained. For the last meal, meat, (if, again, you
must), ship's biscuit and butter, and an apple. Farinaceous diets, such as
porridge, wheat cakes, and the like, are objectionable, for the reason that
if not followed bv a fruit diet, which cleanses the teeth from deposits of
food matter, the result will be to nullify the action oi the gastric juice
glands, the immediate consequence of which will be to deprive the stom-
ach and the digestive organs of their lubricity, with an ultimate reaction
occurring in the teeth.

Verily, a little psychology is a dangerous
thing. Every woman doca not know, but it
behooves her to learn, that the most hazard-
ous thing one can do to a perfectly good
and altogether smooth-running love affair
is to attempt to analyze it. It is well to
Ogy remember that no sort of human affection,
no sort of human love, and above all else
no sort of sex love—and 1 care not how
pure, how beautiful, how holy that senti-
ment is—can survive the scientific search-
light without becoming a shriveled, dis-
torted and hideous thing. As the dissector's
knife and scalpel may in a thrice make
havoc of the beautiful Phrvne herself; as the practical hand of the
botanist in his quest for dry and arid knowledge, may pluck the delicately
fashioned orchid to tatters—so may a man and woman by dissection de-
stroy the fair form of love, and tear to tatters the "red, red rose" of pas-
It is clearly, then, the lietter part of a woman's wisdom, when in love,
to give no encouragement to this pastime, only too often a favorite one
with young lovers. For while a woman can perhaps psychologize herself
and her love for a man, and his love for her. in all the degrees from boil-
ing point down to that frigid temperature where liquid air is said to boil
upon ice; and while she can do it with impunity as regards her own
heart and her own unalterable passion—just as when she was a little
girl she consistently disemboweled her doll to find it stuffed with sawdust,
but loved it none the less for that—the same is not true of a man.

Ventriloquist's Good Joke.
A small negro boy was going along
the street carrylqg a turtle by the
tail, when a ventriloquist standing
near seemed to make It say: "Where
is you-all goln* with me?" The little
negro heard the question, and looked
around with astonishment, but not be-
ing entirely satisfied as to where the
voice came from, walked on. Again
the ventriloquist said: "I say. where
is you-all takin' me?" This time the
boy was satisfied that the turtle had
been gifted with a miraculous power
of speech, and instantly dropped It on
the sidewalk in consternation, ex-
claiming: "I isn't a-takln' you-all no-
whar. 1 has done dropix-d you!"
Argument That Won.
Susie had been promised a pair of
new slippers for Sunday. Anxious to
have them at once she had tried in
every way to persuade her mother to
buy them for her and let her wear
them to a children's party that was to
be given on Wednesday, but without
success. Finally when both she and
her mother had become tired of the
teasing the little girl said: "Well,
mamma, you needn't get them now;
but maybe I'll be dead by Sunday and
If I am you'll be sorry for disappoint-
ing me." Susie wore the slippers
