During the revelry on Broadway,
New York, on New Year's eve. night
a policeman was struck in the face by
a big bundle of bank bills. From
whence it came no one knew, or cared,
perhaps. The bills flew around, the
crowd gathered in all they could and
only $54 was recovered by the police
man. But now there are ten claim
ants for the money. Each one tells a
different story as to how the roll got
away from them. This shows the cu
pidity of these New Yorkers as well
as their ability to lie. For even
though one of them is the rightful
owner, which is doubtful, the other
nine must be liars, as only one roll
was lost. This is, however not sur
prising as what a New Yorker would
not do with money or for money a
Philadelphia lawyer cannot tell. The
money has been turned over to the
property clerk, who will settle the
question of ownership, and, "believe
me," he has "some job." Evidently
the policeman must have been ap
pointed since Capt. Becker lost his

ASHINGTONIt didn't make a
bit of difference to Benjamin
Oswald Johnson, aged six, what was
going on around his little head the
other afternoon. He was busy with
his own devices? This young Ben
Johnson stumbled around the floor of
the House of Representatives, while
the real Ben Johnson, from Kentucky,
and other legislators and statesmen
thundered and argued over the legis
lative, executive and judicial appro
priation bill.
Little Ben is one of the five chil
dren of Representative Joseph John
son of South Carolina. He kept the
House of Representatives amused
from noon until 4:39 o'clock p. m.,
when the gavel fell for adjournment.
Ben appeared on the house floor at
noon dressed in a dark blue sailor
suit. His father had troubles of his
own, for he is in charge of the legis
lative bill, and Representative Fow

Strange Sounds Come from Smithsonian Building
you are passing across the front
of the Smithsonian Institution at
midnight and hear strange cries com
ing from the Byzantine, Norman or
rounded Gothic towers, buttresses,
battlements, groined arches and
cornices, keep your nerve. The moon
may be floating through the southern
sky. Now it will be hidden under
dense cloud masses, and then it will
burst through the black mist and cast
its silver sheen over the heavens and
the earth. Against all this, the long
red sandstone buildings, dark but for
a watchman's lamp in the central ves
tibue, will be submitted. It looks
gloomy and lonesome. One almost
feels the damp and stagnant vapor
that would rise from the moat around
it, if a moat were there.
You can reassure yourself that you
are not in the depths of a haunt
ed forest and before some dismal
medieval castle by looking northward
to catch the glitter of the lights in
the post office tower or by listening
to the purr and soft ripple of the
fountain not far removed from the
northwest corner of the building.
The sounds that have stopped you,
and it may be, chilled you, come from
Cigarette Smoking Under Ban of Censorship
E smoking by women
has com under the ban of cen
sureship by society women in Wash
ington, who are leading a crusade
against smoking and drinking in the
social set at the capital.
Mrs. William H. Haywood, who put
herself on record several years ago,
when she served only grape juice at
the debutante ball of her daughter,
Miss Doris Haywood, is one of the
headers in the anti-cigarette move
ment, and is said to not permit wom
en to smoke in her house.
Mrs. Levi Z. Leiter, who many
think is to be the social leader in
place of the late Mrs. John R. Mc
Lean, has also declared her willing
ness to aid the crusaders against
feminine cigarette smoking.
Ice Skating a Real Fad in Society at Capital
part of Washington society
which delights in outdoor winter
sports has started a movement to dis
cuss the ways and means of promot
ing ice skating. To that end invita
tions were sent out by a- committee
of interested men and women for a
meeting which was held in the ban
quet hall of one of the large hotels.
It is hoped the feeble efforts of "Jack
Frost" in Washington may be supple
mented and real ice skating provided
for those who wish.
The tidal basin at the foot of the
Washington monument is unsafe at
best, and then there are only a few
days' skating on it through the win
ter. Last year the time was extended
somewhat because of the almost un
precedented cold weather in this re
gion. There are many expert skaters
in Washington, who come from all
parts of the world. Most of them be
long to the diplomatic circle, although
not a few are people who have spent
the greater part of their lives in the
northern part of the United States.
Among those interested in the
propect is Major Henry T. Allen,
whose wife was Miss Johnstone of
Oil the Machine.
When the sewing machine is not
running well it is frequently because
there is a collection of dust in the
bearings. When this is the case, the'
machinery should be moistened with
kerosene, then turn the balance wheel
backward and forward. After the
bearings have become clean oil the

after the scalps of several of the itemu
in that bill. While Representative
Fowler was being replied to by Rep
resentative Johnson, Little Ben was
playing tag around his father's legs,
going in and out between them in
most marvelous fashion.
Young Ben interviewed pretty near
ly every member of the house. He
didn't wait for an introduction, but
clambered right into the laps of the
country's law makers. From the
Democratic side he would hop to tho
Republican end of the chamber and
pull out the watches of his father's
dearest political foes, "just to hear the
wheels tick." Uncle Joe Cannon con
tributed to Ben's war chest to the ex
tent of a silver coin, and at the end
of the day Ben's fists were bulging
with nickels, dimes and quarters,
which had been pressed upon him by
admiring friends. He leaned against
Representative Mann of Illinois while
that statesman was shooting sharply
pointed parliamentary arrows at
Ben's own father. The little boy
gazed calmly into the face of Repre
sentative Sereno Payne as the great
tariff expert appeared to be sleeping
peacefully at his desk. He rolled upon
the middle aisle and forced Repre
sentative Ollie James to step over
him, while the child himself wars un
mindful of the gigantic figure pass
ing over him.

in the shadowy nooks of the Smith
sonian building.
Satisfied that no harm is near, you
fall to thinking of James Smithson's
bequest of 1826: of' James Ren wick,
the designer of this building, the first
of its style not ecclesiastic, to be
reared in the United States your
glance goes up to the top of the tallest
tower 145 feet above the asphalt, all
strewn with dead leaves, and your
mind goes back to the time when
President Polk and his cabinet and
hundreds of proud men, now dust, at
tended the cornerstone laying in 1847.
Mrs. John B. Henderson, who is the
arbiter of dancing and dancers in
Washington, has always been opposed
to the practice. It is said she re
quested a fair smoker to go outside.
Lady Alan Johnston, daughter of
Mrs. James Pinchot, is one of the de
fenders of the weed, and smokes
when and wherever it strikes her
fancy. She even puffed her cigarettes
while riding in an automobile from
one place to another.
Lady Johnston struck the first note
in the battle some time ago. when
she offered her cigarette case to oth
er guests at a luncheon. The hostess
was a crusader, and is said to have
requested Lady Johnston, who hap
pened to be the guest of honor, not to
Mrs. Franklin MacVeagh, who has
recently completed her million-dollar
palace on Sixteenth street, has pro
vided little balconies from her ball
room windows for the men to smoke
between dances. If the lady guests
wish to smoke they have to go out
side also.
Miss Helen Taft, at a recent lunch
eon, displayed her displeasure openly
when cigarettes were passed.
Chicago. Major Allen is also an ex
pert horseman, and with his daugh
ters, the Misses Jeannette and Desha
Allen, takes an active part in the
Hunt club of this city. The secretary
of the navy, George von L. Meyer, is
another of the promoters of the
scheme to "build" an ice pond. The
Meyer family is from Massachusetts,
where nature, unassisted, keeps win
ter sports going for months. The
daughter's of the secretary and Mrs.
Meyer are adepts in skating, which
they learned in their native state, and
in which they had a chance to exer
cise when they were living in St.
Petersburg, to which capital their
father formerly was accredited by the
state department.
Youngster's Oplnjon.
While at dinner I gave each of my
boys, age four and five, two peaches,
also my wife took two, while I took a
handful, and, holding the hand down,
asked the youngest, sitting next to
me, to guess how many I had. After
staring blankly at me, I turned over
my hand, showing the amount, which
was three, when the youngster said:
"Too many."Chicago Tribune.

"Don't say that you never heard
that Mr. Bludthick had an Uncle John,

"I haven't either, but I do know that
he has a mother and two sisters and
several cousins because I have met
mother and a sample sister and

for having them, of course, and the
fact that he is proud of them does

me what I pay my dressmaker and
follow me into the kitchen and borrow
my trunks for a month's vacation and

dislikes and direct my attention to my
increasing stoutness and call me Me

in one breath. "Married to them!" she
exclaimed. "Of course I would be,

John, figuratively speaking, has done
more for the leading industry of Reno

erect a statue of him in the market

Mrs. Merriwid turned to the piano
again, and sang:

What Colors the Blood.
The color of blood is due chiefly to
iron in the little blood cells. When
the iron is kept in these little blood
cells, which are living and traveling
around in the blood vessels, the color
is red. Hit the skin hard enough to
break some of the little blood vessels
beneath the surface and the little red
cells escape from the injured blood
vessels, wander about for awhile in
the tissues and die. When they die
the iron that made them red before
then changes to black and blue color
ing. After awhile this iron is taken
up by the glands called the lympha
tics, and made over again into nice
red cells. The iron is taken up much
more quickly by the lymphatics, if the
black and blue spot is rubbed and
massaged.St. Nicholas.
