If "Boaa" Murphy of Tammany Hall could have eeen Offlcer MH the tz.t po llceman In Park Row. flirtlng with the Mooeettea at the foot of Benjamln Frank Un'a atatue across the way from City Hall yeaterday, he certaln'.y would have been peeved. Offlcer 2?534 waa the hero of a button riot at Mits Mary !-onjielly's noon meeting there yesterday. and to aee him atandlng ln George W. Perkina'a au tomohile. his unlform obs.ured with ban danna flags, dealing out T. R. buttor.s ?with both hands was a nad sight for Dem? ocratlc eyea. If Offlcer 2634 hadn't been there, though, there'a no telllng what that macl-for-but tona crowd would have done to Miss Don tjelly and her alaa. Miss Donnelly lost her necktie and another woman bad her bat knocked off, aa lt was. The crowd Waa a "rough house" crowd from the be ginnlng. and took Miss Donnelly's remarks Jn a way that grieved her sorely. ??We women are ranked with the In ajane!" ahe crled. "Sure. I'm marrled, and T know you belong there:" yened a citlzen In a bat tered hat. "You men have mothers. wtvea, eweet _e?rts,'* contlnued "Our .Mary." *Tou'r* my sweetheart. Mary dear," tiellowed an unwholsome youth. Mlae Donnelly took another tack. "When the Prt>gTe*Rives get Into power ttey -rlll glve you all you aak"' ehe aa gttred them In clarlon tones. Who'e Qot the Button? ?*We want buttons, we want buttona'" TOared the crowd. whlch mimbered hun Areia by this time, and wae growlng |lg g?r every mlnute. But Mlas Donnelly waan't ready to glve ?ut the buttons. so she trled to paelfy the pwahlng, struggllng maas of humanlty by oromlslng that ehe'd have one hundred balla 1n New Vork the week after Roose aelt waa elected. "I'm golng to hlre every big buildinr in JSew Tork City," she crled, "and well have one hundred elegant balla " "Put me town on your card for tho flrst dance wld' you," ahrleked a young sca-mp. "Now, boys, thls ls the last time I'll sce ny boys dov-n here before election," aald vilss Donnelly ln aa wheedllne a tone as ihe oould manage ln the megaphone voice ihe was forced to uae. "We want to aee your buttons!" howled the crowd. But Mlas Donnelly wouldn't give out the button? until Miaa Altce Carpenter Jiad talked, and for a wonder Miss f'ar periter managed to get comparative qulet while ahe talked about what the Progrea sive party meant to do to make llfe easter for the worklng people But the mlnute ahe got down and sllpped out of the car to apeak at another meeting iandemo nium broka lnoa*. "Buttona. buttons, 'Teddy' button^:' shouted the grinnlng facrs that surged around the car. And they didn't merely surge around it, they purged up the ba. k and over the sldes. By this time the throng reached from City Hall Park to the Trlbune Bullding. Streetcars were blocked and traffle waa lmposslble. Then Miss Donnelly, In her deaperation, C?ught aight of Offlcer _te4. who had one young lmp by the aeat of hla trouaers and another by hla collar. and waa trying to remove a thlrd from the door of the tar with hla knee. "Get ln here>l" ahe cominanded him. Officor 2634 Cllmbe Aboard. Offlcer 3634 amlled all over hla fat face. "Sure, I will,** he aald, and, wadlng through the mass of atruggling arma and legs. he cllmbed in. Then Mlas Donnelly proeeeded to open the box of buttons, and then- Well, 1** tboee buttone had been gold nuggets, or lf they had been bread and th* crowd tn tbe laat etagea of atar vaUon, the crowd couldn't have atjruggled and snatrhed more ravenouaiy. They rasrhtt* out their handa, they held up Ibair bata imploringly. Mlas M. W. liOOrte. who trled to etand up on the rear aeat to glve out the buttone, waa falrly _nocked down Into the eeat of the car, atjd e~eu the eool and Intrepid Miss Don aelly got rattled. Then It waa tbat Offlcer 3634 proved that a man can be useful. though a po tlcernan. With both fat hands he dlved into the box of buttona and gave them right and left ae gladaomeiy aa if they bad been the emblema of hla parent Wig wam He got ao lnterested that he qutte, fnrgot to try to keep order, but probably he wouldn't have succeeded if he had trled. Anybow, the flve other offlcera who were madty endeavorlng to keep tht au tomobiie; and Ita occupanta from being utterly eubmerged were gwtUng much th? worst of it However, at last the buttons were gone, and with lnflnlte dlgnlty th? automoblle chugged away to other meetlnga in other parte of town. Then, and only then, did peace deacend upon Park Row. ALIMONY J]7.50 A WEEK Wlfe Husband Oalls Hypochon driac Oets Divorce. Mra EUlsabeth Cullln obtained a Inal decree of divorce from Wlllam T.

Thua alowly does domestlc aclence advar.ce In thls age of lnventlon and efllclency! The modern slnk of white porcelaln. ln etalled ln the kltchen of an e^partment house which malntalns a conatant eupply of Btenmlng hot water, and can therefore b* repeatedly fluehed with water of a grease dlssolving temperature, may, per haps, present a wsate plpe with a clean blll of health. Thls cannot be said, how? ever, of the slnk ln the ueual one-famlly house or country home, which la apt to present as many disadvantagee aa ?he slnk of tbe remote centurlea.
