We mint hac looked a curious com

the Ice wagon In un odd surprise. "Did
you come here on that?" she asked.
The Iceman moved to lift my luggage
"You need not bring that trunk Inside
this hall," -niltl lu "We have no roon
here, anyhow." and eoed the door.
I felt as If a pall of Ice cold water hat

The would-be medico was sadly daunted

that placid Teuton's head. Beneath the
windows of Guy's Hospital we once more
marched, our footsteps churchward bent.
He had the bucket ready, tilled with Ice

he cast an angry, vengeful eye. Hut dis

floods from heaven broke. For Germany 3

THE GALLANT ICEMAN.
I had the same sensation once again
that evening when the door slammed shut
upon the gallant Iceman and myself.
We clambered on hifc wagon once again
and tried another boarding house-also in
vain! I must sign an agreement to staj
there one week at least and pay o In
advance. So on we moved.
At length we reached a cheap Hotel,
-which made no difficulty in taking me. I
thought It was a dreary looking place, but
glad I was to get there.
I thanked mv kindly Iceman, and he
tood there fumbling with his hat. He ' was
b. well-dreed. tftjlish jouth, so different

"Gee-whir."' said he. an I held out m

I entered the hotel and ordered tea.
The negro waitress seemed to think thit
strange. She brought at last a grlmv
tray, and I poured out that tea so eager

such times an Englishwoman's st indbv Is
a cup of tea. Alas, alas for rosy hopes
of "the cup that cheers, but not In

In my memory!
That night I slept my soundest sleep

greater phvslcal exhaustion In their train

LONDON, Sept. 35.
Miss Samilla L. Jameson, a young girl
who has been studying art In Vienna,
has arrived In London from The Hague
penniless and alone hut In every other
respect unique among the thousands of
American refugees who have arrived In
London during the last two months.

warfare Mrs. Iilankenburg holds decid

know that when the women of the

antl-suffraglsts that women cannot light,
but the antl-suffraglsts overlook the
fact that It Is the women who produce
the fighters. I know many mothers
who want their children to go and fight

of the children were questioned ns to
the cnuses which made them ask for
labor certificates. The answers were re
markable. The first applicant was a little girl,

known ntiy other condition than poverty
nnd that heavy responsibilities had
checked her normal development.
"My fnther was killed In a railroad
accident," she stammered, "and ever

"Either I was dumb or else I was la7.y,"
he confessed. "Anyway, I never was
any good In school. Half the time I
didn't get promoted, and my father thinks
I'd be bettor off at work. My mother
thinks so, too, and my uncle says I'll
make a good mechanic. I was always
handy with nails and hammers and things
like that. I can make furniture, and
nobody ever taught me, either.
"When anything gets broken around
the house I enn fix it. So I'm going to
work as a carpenter's apprentice. I'm

to piy a dollar board every week, too.
Maybe I ain't glad."
"TEACHER A "TYRANT."
'I am going to quit school because I
don't like my teacher," .was the answer
of a plump, snub-nosed little girl. "She
always had a spite on me and nhe knows
it, too. When anything went wrong she
nlwavs blamed It on me. She said I
didn't tell the truth and I was stupid
and I was always coming to school late

the nasty things she use to say about
me. But I don't care. I am going to
quit, and now I wonder who she's going
to pick at. I have a Job as a cash girl."
"I should worry," exclaimed a more
optimistic girl. "I got a Job In a rib

earn something for the family. I m

to quit my education. They say you
can't ever amount to anything without

me some old books to keep and when 1

Henry R. had decided upon an experi
ment. "I am going to quit school for
a while, anyway," ho said, "and I think
I'll go to work as an offlce boy. If I
like It I'll stick and If I don't I'll go
back to school. I'm young yet and I
pot plenty time to try things out. When
I'm a man I want to be a prise fighter,
but the fellows tell me I'm too voung
for that yet."
All of the applicants were between the
ages of 14 and 16. Children younger
than that cannot leave school and chil

day are not required to obtain labor

were noted In the height of the various
children. One boy was six feet tall and
another who stood near him, measured

BliRMN, Sept 29,
No small .part of, the fortitude with
which tho wbmen of Germany are bear
ing tho hardships of war is due to the
Inspiring, example of the Knlserln Au
gusta Victoria, who Is practically giving
her whole time to the work of vlsltlns
tho sick nnd wounded soldiers.
She has given up her residence nt
Potsdam Palace, where she usually spends
this time of the year when In town, nnd
Is living with hor daughter-in-law,
Princess Eltel' Krlcdrich, in tho quiet
little Uellevue Palace, Just off the Tlcr
gartcti, Every morning a severely plain, gray
motorcar, not bearing the Imperial stand
ard -which usually nutters from automo
biles occupied by members of the Im
perial family, diaws up before the palace
door, and the Kalserln steps in with one
of her Indies In waiting. Frequently she
Is accompanied elthir by Crown Princess
Cecllle, Princess August Wllhclm, Prin

Princess Victoria Louise, now Duchess
FLOWERS FOR SOLDIERS
The car Is filled with huge baskets of
cut flowers, Intended for distribution
among the soldiers.
The military hospitals In Berlin are
widely scattered over the largo area from
the garrisons at Docbcrltz In the north
west to hospital sheds which have been
erected on Tcmpelhofer Feld. To visit
even a part of them in tho course of a
week would be Impossible, but the
Kalserln is untiring and conscientiously
endeavors to visit not only every hos
pital, but every cot.
When there Is not time to finish with
a hospital In the morning, she comes back
the next day, beginning her visit where
I'. left off, In order that no single soldier
will be disappointed. No soldier falls to
receive a keepsake In ths form of a
flower, and It Is pathetic to see the caro
with which the wounded men treasure
these souvenirs of her coming.
However busy the day, she usually
finds time for a, few words with every
Another member of the royal family

Croa and the work of other relief organi
zations Is the Crown Princess Cecllle,
whose immense popularity among all
clasfles has been Immeasurably Increased
by her hard, self-sacrlflclng work In be
half of the poor and relatives of the men
In the field.
Just as the Kalserln has devoted her
self especially to the wounded soldiers,
the Crown Princess has made the father
less families the subject of her special
care, and people's kitchens opened In
various parts of Berlin owe their suc

vvlth which she hns thrown herself Into
She often calls herself for a plate of
soup nnd bread, distributed in generous
portions at the price of 10 pfennings a
plate; not Infrequently on busy days sho
has made her own midday meal upon
the regular kitchen fare.
Following her example, many of the
richest and most fashionable- women of
German society have gone to work vvlth

spectacle of a lady of high title, with her

AFFECTED BY WEATHER
Housewives Told by Dealers That
Costs Have Not Risen.
The fears of many housewives here
that the recent drought, coupled with
hudden changes In weather, would so
iiffect the crops of fruits and vegetables
as to bring about a raise In prices were
dispelled by Inquiry among the fruit and

"The fruit crops," said a prominent
Dock street dealer, who expressed the
general feeling. "wl)h the possible ex

picked, and tree crops are not. as a rule,
very much affected by weather, anyway.
Peaches have been poor ever since the
beginning of the season, but there have
been plenty of them and prices have not
been ycry high accordingly.
"As for vegetables, there have never

not been so cheap for a long time. It
is true that tomatoes have been scarce
and high, but to offset this there Is an
ahundance of onions, cucumbers and the

A woman In a two-room house in a
court at the rear of 933 North American
street appealed today for news of her
eldest daughter, who left the home
nearly six months ago. Since the girl's
departure her father gave up the un
equal struggle to make ends meet nnd
died, leaving the burden of supporting
the other four daughters to his widow.
The woman is Mrs. Mary Patrick. She
Is C3 years old. The girl who disap
peared Is Margaret Patrick, 18 years old.
Mrs. Patrick said today that she has
almost given up hope ol ever again
seelnir her girl.
Every leisure moment the woman has
spent searching for the daughter among
friends, but her efforts have been In
vain. Today she asked that her appeal
be published In the hope that If her
daughter Is still alive she will read It
and return home.
