I The Wood-Ainsworth Feud
l . .
. .1... 1.1 k ,, f rtilrl
To the Editor of the Sun-Sir: There is one pnase 01 u.e uu.i.
existing between Doctor General Wood and Doctor General Ainswori 11 that
the press and public have seemingly lost sight of: that Is, the vlct m. or
rather the martyr. In this case Is the regular army. No matter which side
ins In the ultimate controversy, the officers and enlisted men of the reg
ular service will have Buffered from the combat between these two mili
tant medicos." , . .
It has already resulted In great injury to the service from the mass of
111 advised and radical measures tacked onto the Army appropriation bill,
all of which are the direct offspring' of the enmity between these two men.
Their career- and characters are very similar. General Wood owes bis
advancement in the first Instance to the "Rough llider conspiracy, which

"press bureau," General Wood, it is said, has "made good."
General Ainsworth's rapid rise in military life is largely duo to no less
daring exploit than tho introduction of the "card index" system in the
adjutant general's office. He has also rendered valuable service in private
pension claims which won him the good will of Senators and Congressmen.
Both men have had a common goal in mind, to become the supreme
power in our military service. To attain this end they have ridden rough
shod over all opposition. Some of the ablest and most experienced officers
In the army have been sacrificed or humiliated by the one or the other in
this contest for supremacy. The struggle between them became crucial
vfhen General Wood was detailed as Chief of Staff; one or the other had to
yield and for a time tho ex-Rough Rider held the whip hand and succeeded
at last in bringing about tho retirement of his adversary. Now it seems
that General Ainsworth is having his innings aim "as uisiougeu ... ...eu.ca,

In the pursuit of their personal fight if one advocated a measure the other

efficiency of the army. It is a well known dictum among medical men

"An Economical Man" from Montclair, N. .1., complains in the Sun that
.. 1. t, Asr 4n tfrn:ii o mill
he wears out the "trousers ot 111s pajamas ueiuie ura w,c
therefore he accumulates a lot of "coats" with no corresponding "trousers."
Further when he wishes "more pajamas" he has to buy complete "suits."
He suggests as a remedy that some manufacturer put forth suits ot pajamas
including two pairs of trousers with one coat.
, There is a much happier remedy. Our Montclair correspondent's com
plaint connotes, presuppose's. suggests as a matter of course pajamas. But
why pajamas? Is there any law compelling pajamas? Is there any statute
requiring members of the body politic to go to bed wearing "trousers" and
a "coat" in other words, a "sun : js nui "
ough uncomfortable enough when worn throughout the day? Even to a
casual philosopher it would seem so. Then why continue the discomfort
by "turning in" with another suit on. the trousers of which may bag at
the knees or elsewhere suffer disrepair?
Pajamas are a fad, unmanly, un-American, unconstitutional. No great
man ever wore pajamas. The concept is as infinitely remote as that of a
great man wearing fluent, luxurious, trimmed, pruned and gardened whisk
ers Pajamas are not only uncomfortable; they are unhygienic. On n
stout man the trousers compel a palpably distressing and harmful constric
tion about tho vanished waistline. On a thin man they are kept In proper
place with annoying difficulty. There is no health in them.
Let our economical correspondent from Montclair abandon his shredded
trousers, and in the place of his pajamas lay in a stock of fresh, wholesome,
inviting night shirts. Then thero will bo no further lamentation as to wear
ing out one part before another. A nightshirt is a unit, a perfection, com-.
plete. total. And more than this, it is healthful, comfortable and convenient. !
Clad in a nightshirt neither tho fat man nor tho lean man has aught to rear.
The nightshirt is natural, soothing, soporific. The economical man robed
in one of these will sleep deep, without sonority, his soul untrammelled by
insistent suggestions of "trousers" grown old and frayed before their time.

The serving of salad is always more or less of a problem with this sort
of luncheon. One tearoom solves it by removing the crumb portion of flaky
biscuits and filling the cavity with lobster, crab meat or chicken salad.
Long linger rolls may also be Illicit In the same way. These have the ad
vantage that they are easily handled.
Cold eggs are capable of so much vnrlety that they are always In de

highly seasoned stuffed eggs In batter. They are then fried to a golden

Highly seasoned sandwich butters are responsible for the subtle flavor
of many snndwlches. These are made by creaming ordinary butter and
mixing It with finely chopped peppers, onions, parsley or cucumbers. Horse
radish Is a good addition to the sandwich butter, and so is cheese.
The use or nuts and cheese in sandwich making is nn the Increase, as
such combinations are nourishing as well as palatable. Many cereal breads
are used for sandwiches, and some have chopped nuts kneaded Into the

with peanuts is a specialty of one tearoom. H is used in thin slices spread
with pimento cheese. A favorite sandwich at another establishment is tilled

a huge bonfire on the summit of

on tho same elevation roared, usher

He got his name on the payroll In 18S1 and has kept It there ever slnco.
He has been a delegate to Slate and National conventions, a candidate for
all sorts of offices, appointive and elective. Ile has been a United States
Civil Service Commissioner, a New York I'ollco Commissioner, Governor of
New York, and seven years he was tho President of the United States.
. Tender in his inexperience, ho set out to get another nomination for
President, only to lind himself surrounded by wicked and designing men,
.who meanly took advantage of his innocence and sordidly traded on his
lack of knowledge. Sinful veterans in the ImsB usages of politics came to
him and lilted his mind with falsehoods, which he, unhappy child, was not
able to detect. Guileless, he believed all that was told to him, being nn
guided by the light of personal knowledge.
So Ornishy McHarg imposed on him and led him astray, and filled him
