All of the factories and lnduatrial

Unlike the 1 o'clock chorus of the last

Steomboats, tugboat, ferryboats and
other river craft will ply with columns
of steam ascending; steadily for five min

Every Promise Folflllrd.
One week ago last Saturday the 750
men and women who dmet under the
emblem of the Red Cross last night
gathered In that same room- in the Wal
dorf. thirty-one team captains and their
assistants, to plan the campaign by
which they were to raise $25,000,000'
or more for ths necessary and merciful
work of the Red Cross In the great war
Into which American has entered. Every
promise made them has been fulfilled
and more. Of self-congratulation, how
ever, there was very little.
As Henry P. Davison, who rsn over
from u aahlngton lor the dinner, rc
marked In the brief speech he made,
the Red Cross existed for work ; It
realized the responsibility to the Ainerl
can people, and It concern now was
to spend the money which had been
jwurett out so freely in a way that
would Insure Its purpose. the care and
protection of our boya on the other side.
Mr. Davison's presence was a cur
prise. He bad wired Mr. Breed in the
morning that be didn't think be could

Rain and the first hint of twilight

terday hen a lone flxure crawled
j through the window Into the club rooms
and slumped dejectedly Into a chair.
Any one of the several thousand per-
koiis who had packed Into the area In
froilt nf the club to witness Its final push
fur the Red Crops would guess that the
fisure was that of Samuel W. Falrchlld
the club's most learned specialist In the
art of painless extraction of loose change
for charitable purposes. And they would
bo absolutely right, for as Henry James
probably wouldn't say. It wa none other
Mr. falrchlld explained the reason for
his dejection as he crammed a couple of
nstfuls of $20 bills into a receptacle em
blazoned with the insignia of "The
Greatest Mother of Them AH."

"I was Just gettlnp the crowd worked

'Jreat ss was Mr. Falrrhlld's disap
pointment or the advent of the un
timely shower, It was no sreater than
that of the spectators who had been wlt
nerelng his entertainment. It had been
a tiret class show Besides the eloquence
of Mr Falrchlld there had been speeches
by military men, Capt, A. (joldstein, U.

of which was u declaration of America's

sell copies of It st $1 each
In response to Mr. Falrchlld's prenrrlp
tlon of "something weepy to get 'em
loofrned." Adam Zlltel, the crack tenor
soloist of the club, treated the crowd to
"The Long, Long Trail." The New York
Navy Yard Hand accompanied the sing
ers. While ill this was going on Red Cross
collectors were getting In effective work
amone the crowd, snd spectators In the
"gallery," the windows above the bal
cony, amused themselves by throwing
Kreenback pellets down on the silvery
hair of the silver tongued Mr. Falrchlld,
All In nil It wasn't such a bad day
from the fled ("ross point of view, as Mr.
Falrchlld finally admitted himself as he
