"Several years ago," said a New York physician, "there was a physi cian In this city, dead now, whose greater fume was as a chemist, but be had a fine medical practice. Like a good many others who have money to pay bills with, the doctor was ex tremely slow pay, and collectors had hard times getting to him. Invariably when one called, the man at tho door would ask if ho wished to see the doc tor professionally, am1, if the caller said he did not he was assured the doctor was not In. "Finally one of thorni went at It right and when the men at the door asked If he wished to see the doctor professionally he said he did, and was politely passed Into the waiting room. A dozen more patients were ahead of him, but he was inside at last and on his way to the doctor, and he waited patiently. When he reached the doctor and said he had come with a bill there was a great row at once, and the doctor indignantly berated him. Howover, being honest enough, he paid the bill. "The collector didn't care, so long as he got the money, and straightway told how he had done it. Then an other one tried It and was successful, but no more were. The third collec tor got in with a bill for about $15, but he didn't get out with that amount. The doctor charged him $10 for his professional call and handed him over the balance. One or two others were treated the Bame way on their profes sional visits and the word soon got around among the collectors, with the result that the professional calls were abandoned. After which collections were made any way they could be made except that way. The Defective Baby. At a time when politicians and gen erals have to decide almost every day whether to purchase a trench or a hill at the cost of so many human lives, tho death of a helpless baby has set a whole nation talking. This happens to be a nation which cannot boast that it cares supremely about its ba bies, for hundreds of thousands of them die every year of preventable causes. They die of tenements which could be ventilated, of milk that could be kept clean, of neglect that could be remedied. They die because their furriers are undernaid. because their mothers are overworked; they are run over on city streets because there are insufficient playgrounds; they are infected by dirt diseases; they are starved. Given a chance in life most of them would become happy and use ful. They are refused that chance be cause public opinion is too indolent, because many landlords and business men are too ereedv. because poli ticians are cowardly and ignorant. Every year hordes or nne Human Be ings are condemned to death because it costs too much to save them. But the refusal to keep alive a deformed idiot has become a moral issue throughout the nation. From the New Republic. Puns on Tombstones. The punster is Irrepressible; he even indites his jokes on tombstones. An epitaph in Whitham Abbey in forms us that Sir James Fullerton died "fuller of faith than of fears, fuller of resolutions than of pains, fuller of honour than of days." There is another of Daniel Tears: "Though strange, yet true, full sev enty years was his wife happy with her Tears." This was written of an organist: "Here lies one blown out of breath, who lived a merry life, and died a Meredith." Another says: "Here lies Thomas Huddlestono; reader, don't smile, but reilect as this tombstone you view, that Death, who killed him, in a very short while will huddle a stone upon you." Use for Prisoners of War. Austria has discovered a scientific Use for prisoners of war. Doctor Poch, professor of anthropology and ethnol ogy at the University of Vienna, has been granted the sum of $800 by the government to conduct anthropological researches among the captives of Aus trian arms. He will measure their skulls, tabulate the color of hair and eyes, collect data as to dialect and otherwise subject these human speci mens to the scientific "once-over" many times repeated. The good doc tor is said to be wildly enthusiastic over the prospect of so large and va ried a collection of human material for his investigation. "Tired Hunter" Was a Corpse. When H. L. Burr went to his grist mill, near Ball's Mills, he found lean ing against the door what he at first supposed was a tired hunter who had Btopped to rest.

Dispatch Philadelphia Inquirer. ' Duck Turned Into Soap. At the State university museum in Lincoln, Neb., is the body of a duck that has turned largely into soap.

TIME'S RAPID FLIGHT FASHION'S CHANGES FOLLOW IN QUICK SUCCESSION. Ample Evidence That We Are All of Us Very Transitory and of Little Real Importance In the World. The pictures of women's fashions of twenty years ago look as quaint to us today as the fashions of a like period of time prior thereto probably looked a score of years ago, and as odd and queer as the fashions of a similar length of time before that doubtless seemed to the observer of two-scoro years ago, and so on. At almost any date the modes of a decade or two previous appear more or less ridicu lous, and this was probably so all the way down the corridors of time clear to Eve, when, there being no fashions to look back to, there was, of course, nothing queer about them. In the days of tight skirts we looked back with amusement to the days of hoops and crinoline. When bangs were in vogue we smiled at the rec ollection of the chignon and waterfall, Just as the days of the straight front found the recollection of the Grecian bend highly diverting. At any date, from the present back to the time of Godey's Ladies' Book, one could pick up a faBhion publication of a few years before and enjoy a hearty laugh. And so it will doubtless ever be; the correct thing of yesteryear Is the laughing-stock of today, and tho modes of the present will be either humorous or pathetic, according to how you louk at them, a few years hence. And it is not alone in the matter of woman's garments that this rule holds good. The cabinet organ, once sup posed to be a musical instrument; the Populists, thirty years ago sus pected of being a political party; the silver-tongued statesmen of yore, with their tremendous pomposity and appalling emptiness; "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Ten Nights In a Bar room," once venerated as vehicles car rying messages of vital Import; all aro now the subjects of Jests by the light-minded. The elocutionist, the dodo, the torch light parade, the blue-grass cure, spirit-rappings, the original Swiss Bell Ringers, madstones, croquet and very many more once held the center of the stum hut havine served well or ill their predestined purposes, are gone forever. The world does move! Judge. Hat Duels Are Bloodless. Women like to wear large hats there is a certain air to them but ever since they became fashionable they have been causing several hun dred feminine encounters. These hat duels always start the same way. Two women, each with big white hats, were seated in a subway train recently. Suddenly the stiff, saw-like edge of one hat swept the other woman's back hair. The one who had been "wound ed" turned and glared at the offender, and in so doing Inadvertently, of course, sawed the offender's neck with her own hat. "I don't care; she needn't think she owns this car," one exclaimed aloud to her companion. "She can't be a lady or she wouldn't act that way," the other remarked scornfully. The average man who over hears and oversees one of these hat duels is likely to be unduly alarmed while It lasts, and wonder why there Is no bloodshed. New York Times. Giant of Stars. Canopus, the giant of the stellar system, Is, according to a recent cal culation of W. F. A Ellison, 49,000 times as bright as the sun. It is 134 times as large as tho sun in diameter, 18,000 times in surface and 2,420,000 times in volume. Its distance from us, according to the same estimate, is 489 light years. Suppose, says Mr. Ellison, that Instead of being at this enormous distance it were placed in the center of the solar system, in lieu of the Bun. It would then occupy eighty-fire hundredths of the space ly ing within the orbit of Venus, and as seen from tho earth would subtend an angle of about 70 degrees of arc. Thus, when Its lower limb was on our hori zon, its upper would be within 20 de grees of the zenith. Needless to say, no life could exist on earth with suet a neighbor. Straying From the 8ubjeet.

MPPDfl(iS a I Los Angeles Has a Really Progressive Church L08 ANGELES. "The world today wants an electric-lighted, self-starting, eight-cylinder church," says the pastor of the Trinity Methodist congrega tion of Los Angeles, and In the erection of Trinity auditorium, a new million. dollar institution, he believes he baa three floors and roof. There are S26 hotel rooms on the remaining floors, and offices and clubrooms for various religious and secular organizations. In the hotel all are outside rooms, many of which have sleeping porches and shower baths. On the roof there is ample room for tennis and basket-;, ball courts and an auditorium to seat 500 persons. The roof garden also Is used for entertainment features of church activity. Typical of these was the j three days' carnival of fun held for boys during dedication week. ; The main auditorium, seating 2,300 people, is fully equipped with stage.j orchestra pit, the usual stage curtains, drops and footlights. In addition to this auditorium there are four others, seating from 300 to BOO persons. These rooms are used for Sunday school classes, recitals, club meetings and social events. Motion pictures begin the regular Sunday school service, and also a.t used through the week, when feature photo plays are presented to the publio at regular motion picture Bhow rates. The annual Income from the audi torium alone is expected to be $16,000, while the hotel is expected to yield $75,000 annually, the cafeteria $10,000, and the clubrooms and storerooms $10,000. Jake, the Snipe Shooter, Annoys Chicago Lawyers CHICAGO. "Jake" is a "snipe shooter" with a national reputation. "Jake" has held the "common enemy" off with even more success than has Cap tain Stroeter. Desperate appeals have been made to the office District Attor ney Charles F. Clyne, but as yet the "snipe shooter" is monarch of all he surveys. "Jake" visits the federal building at 10:05 a. m. every court day of the year, and it Is at that time his "pernicious activities" start and they continue as long as there is a court in session. Many attorneys, court attaches, litigants and others who enter the fed eral courtrooms take the precaution to leave their cigars outside. There is only one place these may be left, on Ihn mitilHa Molnv nf Vi a wlndnwfl an.l and at 10:05 a. m. along comes "Jake" and takes the entire collection. Then "Jake," who la a little, old man with white hair and mustache, steps gingerly into tho courtroom and takes a seat among the other spectators. After a half hour or so, he steps out again, and there is a fresh supply. All go down into bis pockets. District Attorney Clyne has been asked to put a stop to "Jake's" practices by visitors to the courtrooms, who are annoyed by the disappearance of their unfinished cigars. "I can't prosecute 'Jake' unless someone furnishes me with evidence that he is taking something of value," said Mr. Clyne. "So far no one has proved to my satisfaction that any of the articles he is reported to have taken were of value." "Jake," who has been operating for years, says nothing, but is always ready when the "snipe" is deposited. Web-Footed Man Wanted to Join Marine Corps SYRACUSE, N. Y. Because a thin membranous filament connecting his toes made him web-footed, Frank Leque, Holtsvllle, L. I., thought he would make a splendid recruit for that semlaquatic organization, the United ( MfBBE I KIN 0f A COP IN VENICE had momentary visions ot the Long Island recruit being trained actually to walk on the water and so, in time, to hurdle hot-foot over hissing combers from one vessel to another to deliver his "Don't give up the ship, boys" messages from the admiral. . But perfect feet are absolutely essential to marines, and since the corps is usually filled up to maximum strength with exceptionally well-developed men, the web-footed one was told that he wouldn't do. Now nothing remains for him to do except to Join the Venetian traffic squad, or, as another re jected applicant told him, "acquire water on the knee and a floating kidney with your other accomplishments and you could enter the Patagonian navy." New Yorkers Buy Unclaimed Steamship Baggage NEW YORK. "You step up, gentlemen," the auctioneer was saying, "and take your choice and your chance. I don't know what is in these pack ages, and neither do you. You may get something for nothing." And he might have added that you may get nothing for something. The auctioneer was Max Glauberg, selling the unclaimed baggage that had collected at the Cunard line pier at the foot of West Thirteenth street. This baggage, about the most nonde script collection a man could well im agine, was piled all over the second tior of the dock. There were trunks and handbags, golf bags and burlap bags, umbrellas and canes, and a num ber of packages that looked like bun dles of old clothes, but might be bombs. And it is not at all without the pale of reason to think that bombs might be left at the pier. It has been done; and when a man leaves a bomb at a pier, whether it goes off or not, he seldom if ever claims it. At one point of the sale the autioneer held up a square, villainous looking package from which there was an audible rattling. "It's going," said he, "going, going" "If it's going off," said a nervous old gentleman, "I'm goner And he was.
