TTAVE you heard that William Hart, of
Rosemont, the one who married Nina
Justice, has been given a commission ns
1,3 N major In the Judge advocate's department
and Is to be located at Washington during
me war. Stevens Heckscher, too, of Strnr
ford, was made a major a few weeks ago.
He Is also In the Judge advocate's depart'
rhent. Hill Hart Is a brother of Mrs. Led
yard Heckscher and Tommy Hart, ou
know, who married Margaret Newbold In
May of this year. Ledyard Heckscher and
Stevens Heckscher are cousins, hut thcro
1st of course, no connection between Mr.
Hart and Mr. Heckscher.
Stacy Lloyd Is another man who lives
on .the Main Line who h.n been recently
made a major In the judec advocated de
partment. He has been at It for some time
and I understand Is In Fiance now. But
one hears so many nimott these days one
can never be sure about the reports'. I
don't mean about the being made mujois:
Iff, that's sure; but that Major Lloyd has gone
to France I am not certain.
ANOTHER little debutante of the future
. has come among lis. The Hamilton
Dlsstons hac a little daughter. She was
born on Monday In Chestnut Hill. Mrs.
Disston was Jessie Williamson, ou know,
a daughter of Doctor Williamson, of Wil
mington and later Chestnut Hill. Hamil
ton Dlsston is an cnblgn In the navy and
Is at Key West at present.
And small Anglir Dukos Jr. has a new
brother for a second son was born this
week to Mr. nnd Mrs. Duke. Ami tur
'rlend Tony Bkldle Is once more a it rami -rather,
for ou remember Mrs Dtik.' was
pretty Cordelia Blddle, whose wedin,r in
Holy Trinity Church some three ,e.iis aso,
was a pi cat social event.
Cordelia is only twenty-one now but sho
Is a devoted little mother despite liar, youth,
ard Is ever so happy in her married life.
SPEAKING of the navy, did you know
that Mrs. George Fales Baker,- who Is
so interested In the Navy Auxiliary of the
Red Cross, Is giving a large ball this week
at Spring Lake at the Sussex and Essex (I
dont" know which comes first In that hotel's
'.name, Sus or Es). It's to be very elaborate
rd the proceeds are to go for the Red
Cross. Mrs. Baker is a splendid worker
and has taken a lively Interest In the aux
iliary. Sho Is on the committee of the
Independence Square Auxiliary of the Red
Cross and is chairman of the Navy Aux
iliary there.
All i the members of that committee, by
the way, wort strenuously. Mrs. Clinton
Rogers Woodruff spent a number of morn
ings there in the winter and Mrs. Fred
English has charge of wool and Is vice
chairman of the auxiliary and is most de
voted there. Do you remember how stun
ning she looked In the Liberty Loan
parade when she led the auxiliary, 400
strong, In the march. Mrs. Beldlng is
another Indefatigable worker, who until
It was decided to close the rooms for the
day on Saturdays in the summer came in
very Saturday and remained at the desk
In charge of -affairs for the day.
And for the. last few days, In spite of
the Intense heat, Mrs. George Lorimer,
who is chairman, has spent the entire day,
from 9 until 5, down there making dress
ings and directing the work until Mrs. Mc
Orath comes down to take charge the end
of the week.
So you see these good ladles are not
only good executives, butthey know how
to make the dressings themselves and they
do them, too.
ONE of the. latest things to do for the
soldiers and sailors Is to take them
along In your car. Now, of course, the
actual taking them In Is not new, for many
people have done that for ages; but the
'new thing about it is the sign which comes
4 and which you paste on the back or side
window of your car.
It has a white background and has a
narrow red and white stripe and then a
broader blue stripe around the edge. And
la blue and red letters it reads: Soldiers
and Sailors. A seat In this car for you.
Hold up your hands. I will stop.
So, you see, there is no room for mis
understanding. The soldier or sailor need
only hold up his hand to be taken along
in the loveliest limousine In the city. We
all try to do our bit, you see, even if, as
in Nancy's case, we only have a "Brill"
HE HAD gone to a training camp, nat
urally tome distance away, and so
maybe that was the reason she was
so sweet to the postman and always
insisted upon opening the door her
self when he came. She did get letters,
too, and In them were weird descriptions
of all the new things he was doing to
learn how to be a soldier. And In between
several of these accounts was one little
phrase which wasn't exactly a hint, but
stilt It might be one. Jl was: "Do you
remember that good fudge that used to be
your specialty? I surely do." Now, of
course, he didn't Just ask her to send him
some, but the chances were he would be
tickled to death If she did make it for htm.
At least so bhe thought right away, and
she also thought:
''Poor boy! He doesn'tget many sweets,"
and naturally after that bhe Jumped up
and said, "I'll make him some right away."
So she did, and I wish he could have seen
her 'making It, for her little blue gingham
apron was most fetching, you must know;"
"nd she J"iiked charmmgly domestic as'
she stirred the fudge and beat It ener
getically and poured It out.
1 Well, It turned out to be the most de
licious creamy stuff she had ever seen
or1 tasted (she Just took one piece, because
t looked so good she simply HATTA).
After that she packed It In a box and
hunted all around for a piece "of tissue
paper to put on the top so that the candy
. WOUltini uuilll' uiuuiiu ur uicttA an 1L5

and precious quality, foresight). She
finally found a piece, tucked it hurriedly
) nand then wrapped the box up and sent
"t . It off with a smile at the thought of how

for It certainly was good," she remarked
to herself with satisfaction,
That was some time ago, and quite re
cently ho came down to see her. There
was, of course, a good-looking dish of her
"specialty," and she couldn't Just under
stand why he should chuckle and exhibit
other signs of Irrepressible mirth as he
took a piece. She wanted to know what
tho Joko was. He tried to look as If there
wasn't nnv, and, of course, failed hope
lessly, for there was one, so finally he
gasped:
"You know that fudge you sent me7"
(There couldn't have been anything funny
about that, she thought. I tasted It my
self.) "Well, I didn't like to tell you when
I wrote and thanked you for It, because It
seemed kind of mean nfter you had gone
to so much trouble to mako it. In fact
I wasn't ever going to tell you, but"
nnd here he went off Into another gleeful
spasm "there had been camphor balls
somewhere very near that tlssuor1 paper
you had tucked In on top, and er the
fudge was slightly camphorated" he fin
ished with a snort. "But," he added, "I
ate It anyhow.'' NANCV WYNNE.

Washington, July 31.
QJUGOESTrtJNS with regard to taxation
O
flow steadily into Washington during
the consideration of the new revenue bill,
and some of them are worth while.
Congressman Louis T. McFndden. of
Pennsylvania he Is from Canton, Brad
ford County, and so near the New
York line a'to he In closer touch with the
magnntes up there than most Phlladel
phlans has been sending nlong some origi
nal Ideas. Mr McFadden Is n banker hut
he starts out with the suggestion that "the
heaviest taxes -should lest upon those who
are profiting greatly by the conditions
arising out of tho crisis," and he Insists
that "nonproducers and parasites living
on the wealth cieated by others In either
this or former generations without pro
ducing anything themselves should be
made to pay for their Idleness or nonpio
ductlveness." But he places" bank oheckH
nnd banking activities in the same class
with the tools of the workman who pro
duces and distributes nil the forms of
wealth needed for the security of the Com
monwealth, and expresses the opinion that
it would "be Just as reasonable to tax the
hammer and the saw of the carpenter the
pipe wrench of the plumbei, the plow of
the faimer, the lathe of the machinist or
any tool used by the artisan or producer,
ns It Is to tax the hank check, for the i en
son that nil of them are simply a means
of achlev Ing a valuable and desirable thing,
the production and tho distribution of
wealth."
DR. S SOMS-COHEN, who is well
known to Phlladelphlans ns a thinker
upon economic subjects, also presents
some Interesting views. He holds that the
people should provide without stint the
necessary means to bring the war to a v 1c
lo'roua conclusion; but, he adds, "Indis
criminate and multifarious taxation Is
undesirable, since It provokes resentment
nnd produces Inequalities." The doctor
then sets up two canons of taxation, as
follows:
First. That the tax should not readily
be evaded.
Second. That the tax should be equltabls
distributed; that Is. that its incidence upon
Individuals should be In pioportlon to the
benefits that they receive from the State
Doctor Soils-Cohen further contends that
while the public may not be ready for the
single tax, a moderate tax might bo levied
upon "the value of unused and Inadequate
ly used land In the United States," which
he thinks would produce at least $500,
000,000. WAR prohibition has gone over for six
weeks or so, but t lie war revenue
question has not. The Pennsylvania State
Chamber of Commerce, which has been in
vestigating the subject, is taking the prob
lem up with Washington. It suggests the
possibility of an Increase ot other taxes
