' 0F TEACHIPJG SPANISH'
Say Brumbaugh Plan Would Aid
Commerce With. South. America.
Approval of Governor-elect Brum
baugh's plan to Include the . study of
Spanish in tho public school curriculum
was heard "fcoday on oven' side of mari
time circles. Tho teaching" of the Span
ish language to publlo school pupils
would be a bond of closer friendship with
tho countries of South America and an
Inceptive for' 'promoting trade,- In the
opinion ot many shipping men.
It was pointed out that Germany owed
much of her commercial success In
Bouth America to the students of the
language so numerous throughout the
Fatherland. Even. In England the teach
ing of Spanish was. neglected and in' many
cases where concerns had .dealings with
South America they employed Spaalah
epealtlng Germans to conduct that end ot
the business.

Proposal to Convert Infantry Into
Artillery Beglmento.
The proposal to convert two Phlladel-
?hla regiments of the State militia, the
d and 6th Infantry, Into artillery or
ganizations and rqund out the National
-Guard of Pennsylvania Into a complete
division excited much favorable com
ment among National Guard officers here
today. It was said that an effort would
be made at the next session of the Legis
lature to revise the military code of the
State to permit the program which calls
for the expenditure of more than $1,
000,00a by the Government and will make
the State's; military fBrce second to none
In the" country.
If the Legislature changes the -code,
as required, it Is said that the Jd and
the 6th Regiments will be reorganized
as field artillery and coast artillery; re.
Bpeotlvely. Brigadier General Price has

of the Rev. Er. Augustus E. Barnett,

The letter lauds Doctor Richmond fer

' - - J;
Lover of Bllenco Must V&j $112 and
Stand Noise In the Bargain.
Love of silence runs In the Maxim fam
ily. Therefore, Hudson Maxim, brother
of Hiram, who Invented the Maxim
sltencor, desired a noiseless heating ap
paratus in his Brooklyn home. The
Vapor VaoUum Heating Company, of this
city, agreed to install such a system, but
failed, according to Mr. Maxim. Then he
demanded that Leonard Elliott, the con
tractor, who ,bullt his home, enter suit
against tho company. It Is n New Jersey
corporation.
Tho case was heard In the Camden
County Circuit Court, and the Jury, after
being out 24 hours, returned a verdict to
day awarding the company $113.
Mr. Maxim contended that the system
Installed) by tho company reminded him
of targot practlco off Sandy Hook on ac
count of the constant rattling and bang
ing of pipes. He was amazed at tho
Jury's decision, but did not say whether
he would take an appeal. Jt cost tho
