dilapidation to which a year-old Infant

little fllmay drirs to cover It, and per
uana not even that much.
'Another poor little missive said: "I
gn"t ask for a real doll with eyes that
shut and open ,and real hair. I will
be satisfied with a rag doll If the other
oolla giev out before jou come to my
name. 1 never had a doll except once,
Hid then It was broke."
Means of Happiness,
'Think of that! Think for live or ten
ralnutes, and then tmnglno yourself a
little girl, with worn-out shoes, and
ragged clothes, and perhaps not enough

these sharp mornings. Then eeo If
going without an Ice cream soda, or a
bunch of violets, or a new collar for
your Boston bulldog (who really doesn't
need a new collar at all) wouldn't bring
you something In the way of happiness,
If the money you saved In this way

The St. Nicholas girl uoes not at

ROCHESTER, Dec. 8. "These women
are like horses they don't want to alt
down. You never aaw a homo that
wanted to sit down when It was tired,
When a wealthy canner of western
New York was raked by an Inapector
for for the State factory commission
why he did not provide rest facilities
for his women employes, ho made ths
In testifying before the State factory
investigating commission, Miss Mary
Louisa Chamberlain electrified the pub
lic by her declaration that the working
of children as young as four years for
long hours In the canneries of the State
was not unusual.
Padrone Gets Help.
"Reports of the special Investigators
show that when the season Is about to
open the canner goes to a padrone In j
one of .the larger cities nearest his ;
canner) and contracts for the number'
of workers he estimates he will re-'
quire. Ho pays the padrone from 50
cents to a dollar a head. Resides this
fee the padrone gets n fee from each
of the workers. Ho herds them to
nether and ships them to tho cannery,
sometimes In special cars.
"Instances were found," says tho re
port, "In which the padrone also re
ceived a rake-off from the railroad com
pany. Usually the padrone, after de
livering his human herd. Is engaged by
tho cunncr as an overseer, receiving
Jl.t.0 to M day for this work. And
still further, the padrone often Is
granted the commissary privilege In
the canning camp, selling sausages,
cheese, und other foods.

"In tho matter of discipline he Is vir

hand. Not only the children but the
adult workers hold him In fear. In
the picking season, when the women

speed and seeing to It that the very
small children pick the vines clean."

Capital's "Regular Day" for
Legislation Due Tomor
row in Congress.
The probable attitude of Congress
toward District of Columbia legisla
tion may be outlined In the House
tomorrow. If the House starts off
the session by sidetracking District
hills, the friends of such legislation
probably will abandon hope and be
content with an hour or so a month.
The District became rather accustom
ed to such fefoceduce last aenlon.
Under the rules of the House the
aecond and fourth Mondays In the
month are presumed to bo devoted
to the District. Home times they are;
generally they are not.
There haa been no Intimation vet
that tho District will be ahoved aside
tomorrow, but the House probably
will be tempted to renew considera
tion of the legislative appropriation
bill, unless Chairman Ben Johnson,
of tho District Committee, makes a
fight for the District's day at court.
Mr. Johnson was asked yesterday
what he considered the proapecta for
District legislation at thla tension.
Mr. Johnson said ho "didn't know."

OF PEACE MEETING
turko-Balkan Delegates Will
Be Granted Use of. St.
James' House, London.
LONDON. Deo. l-The British gov-
ernment haa placed St. James' Palace,
in nome of many kings, at the dis
posal of the Turko-Balkan- delegates,
who are to assemble In London thla
week for a peace conference. The del
egates will have the aplehdld apart
ments used by the Duke and Duchess
of C'onnaught. There Is a doubt, how,
ever, whether all the delegates will ar
rive in London In time for the first
meeting, on the 13th. as only Turkey,
Uervia and Montenegro have officially
selected delegates, but Orecco and BiU
garla will appoint delegatea within the
next twenty-tour hours.
Division Of Thace.
The serious business will begin on
Monday, December 10. The ultimate di
vision of Thrace between Turkey and
Bulgaila will be the first subject
broached hv th delegates, and un
doubtedly Turkey and Bulgaria have al-
may agreea in principle on a ironucr
With regard to Adrlanople, which will
be one of the most delicate questions to
handle, the hope Is entertained that a
settlement will be reached on the ImbIs
of the stronghold, dismantled, remain
ing In possession on tho Turks.
Powers Will Guide.
The matter relating to Macedonia will
form the substance of protected discus
sions, and when the deliberations have
reached that stago a meeting of the
ambassadors of the Powers twill be
held at the foreign office. The am
bassadors will guldo where the Inter
ests of the great powers arc Involved.

RESIGNED TO HER
Minnesota Bank Cashier Will
Plead Guilty After Six
Months' Dodging Law.
WINNEBAOO. Minn., Dec. 8Mrs.
Harry W. Parker, wife of the default
lag vice prealdcnt and caehler of the
State Bank of Commerce. Is reconciled
to her husband and resigned to the fact
that he must become a prisoner In the
8tato penitentiary at Stillwater. Thla
statement was given out by Mrs. Park
er herself today. Even with the hus
band and father In prison, members of
the little family find joy and happiness
In tho knowledge that thev at least
know where he Is, and thut tho veil of
suspense which has hung over them
for tho past six months past has finally
been raised. ,
Mrs. parker and her children will con
tinue to live In Winnebago. Neither
rMs. Parker nor any of the three chil
dren will give out any statement re
garding the case.
Mrs. Parker Is of a quiet, retiring die-
Rosttlon. She Is bearing up bravely,
owever, and tho residents and officials
of the city are doing their best to spare
her notoriety. That, too, la the strong
est reason the prisoner has for decid
ing to enter a plea of guilty as aoon
aa he can.
Woman Ends Life.
Cora Wormley, colored, waa found dy
ing In a aecond floor front room at her
home, 1013 You street nnrthweat, early
today, aa a result of having swallowed
carbolic acid. An ambulance was sum
moned but she waa pronounced dead.

If all Sewing Machines were like "The Free," there would be no idle
machines in the homes and no homes without a machine. Sewing with
, a "Free" is done with as little exertion as a bird glides through the air.
Note the "ball bearings" in the picture below! Note where the balls
touch that's the only friction point! Do you have to be a mechanic to
know that friction is reduced to next to nothing?
