getting away with it. Anyhow, tender-hearted
Miss Gordenia Winthrop
of Washington, after five years of
lorgnetted investigation of some of
the rather distressing social condi
tions of the town, says it is so. Forth
with she decided something really
ought to be done hence a rather in
teresting announcement from Miss
But before launching into Miss Win
throp's solution, let's see just what is
this problem of the young lovers of
New York. The answer is: "Where
are they going to do their courting?"
Or, rather, that leads up to the an
swer, and in the meantime proposes a
With a few million people trying to
occupy the narrow confines of Man
hattan Island, it goes without further
elaboration that 'every family cannot
place at the disposal of Sal and Jane
a parlor each for the entertainment of
their young man friends over an eve
ning's call. Moreover, a large percent
age of "the other half" in New York
City cannot afford a single parlor fpr
the -whole family.
So when Freddie makes a date
with Sal, Sal must make answer to
Freddie something to this effect: "All
right, Freddie; meetcha at the corner
of Hundred and Twenty-fifth and
Eighth." Freddie arrives duly, we
will say; likewise Sal. Presently the
popular street corner under the glar
ing arc lamps and intfull sight of the
passing throng becomes as inviting for
a continuance of the tryst as Broad
way for a rest cure.
There's little in the way of a choice
for Freddie and Sal. They might walk
a while, yes; but more than love's
young dream is necessary to make a
lovers' lane out of a New York street.
There's the Cafe de Something around
the corner. The lights are dim there;
nobody is his brother's keeper across
that threshold. So we can't approve
of Sal and Freddie going there.
They have another choice, and only
about one more. It's the noisy dance
hall down the avenue. The brassy
music mimics sadly the sighing of the
evening's breeze of the country lane,
which is nature's own trysting place
for the village lad and lass; the thick,
smoky atmosphere of the dance hall
is a poor substitute, surely, for the
open sky that falls to the lot of young 1
lovers away from a great city's con
gestion. No; the dance hall will not
For the solution of the problem of
the courting couples of New York we
may turn gladly to Miss Winthrop's
announcement. The fair philanthro
pist has viewed the problem viewed
from afar, perhaps, but still close
enough to see the temptations which
mock the lot of the young lovers of
the city; to see that love's young
dream unfolding in a dance hall or
cafe may result in something very
different from a storybook ending;
to see, finally, that the city is sadly
deficient in proper courting places for
the young whose homes offer no such
Miss Winthrop's proposition is this:
She will establish at her own expense
of $15,000 a house, conveniently
located for the Working class, where
the young people may meet under
the supervision of experienced chaper
ons. -"I have been over every section of
this country studying its social evils,"
Miss Winthrop said, "and I think I
have found now what will be a great
remedy for the young in this great

Burglar Breaks Glass in Saloon to Get

St. Louis. The crash of breakim?
glass attracted patrolmen to the sa
loon of Charles Crosick early in the '
morning. A plate glass in front of the '
place had been broken. But there was I
no sign of a burglar.
The police found a bottle in the hall
way. It was a quart bottle such as
is used to contain wnsky. The cork
was out and lay nearby. Part of the
contents had been spilled. The' rest
reflected a nice, ruddy glow. Taking
it to the saloon, the police asked CrcT
sick if it was his.
"Yep; that's all the fellow took, i
too," was the reply. "It's colored!
The police imagined the look nf m. !
gust onjthe face of the burglar when
he sampled the whisky.
