THE WASHINGTON HERALD. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 26. 1911.
5 m i Woodward & Lothrop New York-WASHINGTO'N Paris ' IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. We Begin at 8:30 This Morning OUR ANNUAL AFTER-XMAS CLEARANCE SALES IN WHICH PRACTICALLY THE ENTIRE STORE PARTICIPA TES THE lines in which repricing has taken place are. many and varied in fact, too varied to permit of itemizing or entering into detail in but few instances. The merchandise in all cases is thoroughly good and desirable, and but for the fact that our stocks must present complete assortments at all times would not be reduced. Opportunities for economizing are many; especially do we emphasize the buying advantages to be found in Men's, Women's, and Children s Ready-to-wear Apparel. ARMY OF WAIFS BECOMES "LITTLE MILLIONAIRES" Saks & Company Make Annual Distribution of Over coats and Other Clothing to Needy Boys. An army of small boys one hundred strong, some In tattered clothes, soma with broken shoes, and all with hands In pockets and collars turned up, for none wore an overcoat, were marshaled Into line on Seventh street, for Saks & Co.'s annual Christmas gift of clothes and overcoats, at 10 o'clock Christmas morn ing Half an hour later one hundred "little millionaires" began to file out of Saks & Co 's Pennsylvania avenue entrance, each clad In swagRer boy's overcoats and many in new shoes, new hats, and new ties. The waifs In the Seventh street line ecd the big policemen with respect and awe, but the "little millionaires" that came out the Pennsylvania avenue doors almost pushed the cops oft the curb And yet the one hundred boy waifs and the one hundred "little mil lionaires" were the same. Saks & Co. were distributing their an nual Christmas gift of one hundred over; coats to boys who did not have any-but deserved to have them. Not only were overcoats given, but many of the boys whose clothes were worn Vvere provided w 1th a brand-new outfit, from Blockings Co caps. And to add to the little fellows' Joy Joseph I Saks, who was In personal charge of the distribution, had his pock et full of dollar bills, some of which he, from time to time, handed out to the brightest of the little band. Isaac Gans, general manager of Saks-& Co.. stood by like a twentieth century Santa Claus, and with a benevolent eye carefully tennned each comer. One small chap came by stamping his feet with prldo as he snuggled In his new overcoaj, but the feet were encased In broken and worn shoes. Mr. Gans' be nevolent eye spied the broken shoes. "Here. Mr. Phillips," he called. "This lad needs a new pair of shoes." So back again the boy went with Mr. Phillips, of the men's furnishing department, and was fitted with a new pair of shoes, after, -which he went out to Join the army of "little millionaires" on the Avenue. "That Is right." said Mr. Saks, "we don't want one to get by without every thing, from shirts to shoes, that he needs. Each one of these cases." Te continued, "has been carefully looked up and re ported upon by the Associated Charities at our request, and all of them are de serving. Wc find this year that necessi tous conditions are not due near so much to Intemperance as to slcknesa in h Jdpiy, and especially to tuberculosis inai nan cui aown uie Dreaa-winner." Tnc distribution marks the twenty third annual Christmas gift of Saks & Our Business Hours are 8:30 A. M. CI GoprriEht Hart SchnfToer & Marx Co., a custom of the firm which was es tablished by Isadore Saks, the founder. Among tho employes who helped Man ager Gans In the distribution were the following: George 'Daniels, clothing de partment: Samuel L. Phillips, men's fur nishing department; Samuel Spltzer, shoe department; Edward Nllsson, hat de partment; H. N. Ober, sporting goods department; J. D. Hughes, window dress ing department, and Sol Breslauer. Many visitors called while the boys were In line, among them being O. E. Darnall, superintendent of the National Training School for Boys. As Mr. Dar nall watched the transformation of the little army of waifs Into the army of "little millionaires," he philosophically re marked; "It may be true that the clothes do not make the man, but the clothes certainly go a long way toward making the boy." And the army of "little millionaires" no doubt thought so, too. To the generosity of Saks & Co., Ronald Spltzer, son of Samuel Spltzer, one of the buyers for the establishment, added a Jar of coins he had saved while ill. He expressed a wish that the money be given to the poorest applicants. Nearly 23.900 children have now been sent to Canada from England through the agency of the Barnardo homes.

VEST POCKET ESSAYS New Year's Resolutions At this particular period of the year the New Tear's resolution begins to oc cupy the attention of a great many citi zens of varying prominence and sobriety, The New Tear's resolution is a super stition to the effeot that between 11 p. m. and midnight on December 31 of each year, a backbone composed of gelatine and putty will suddenly stiffen up and become so Inflexible that its possessor will be enabled to say "No and stick to it for years at a time. Acting on this superstition, men who cannot exist throughout the year without a drink before and after each thirst, re solve1 never to drink again; while men whose mouths would feel like an extinct and unfilled crater without cigars in them, declare that henceforth and for ever they will remain outside of the Amalgamated Order of Human Chlm neys and will use the money thus saved to buy houses and farms. Sad to say, most of these1 resolutions do not last over forty-eight hours. There are many reasons for this. In the first place. It is true that between 11 and 13 o'clock on the night of December 31, men find It easy to refrain from drink and smoke, because, they are usually full of both at that time. If there was come method of continuing this hour In definitely, a great many tender little re solves would not be drowned at an early age. Another reason is the fact that reso lutions go Into the game with no prac tice. A. man who wouldn't play football without looking up the rules will start on a dry year with no practice whatever.

New York. Dec. 25. The "tars" of nine of Uncle Sam's fighting craft gave their Christmas entertainments this ofternoon on board their ships at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Some 1,500 visitors were re ceived during the day. On board the Culgoa, 100 persons were) lined up about the deck, viewing with interest the wild antics of flvo of the sailors, each rolling a potato around the deck with his nose. Half way around the deck one, who had led the rest, lost sight of his potato, and finally sighted it, too late to recover It. as It went over board. The winner, who negotiated the circuit In ten minutes, was loudly cheered. On the Delaware the feature was a fack race, with a dozen entrants, who struggled along the deck, some on their backs, othtrs on their sides, but most of them trying to stand, so it seemed to the spectators, on helr heads. One man. who lay on his side and rolled the entire dis tance around the deck, was disqualified, although he was first across the line. This was followed by a three-legged race, to the tune cf "Yankee Doodle." The other ships holding similar enter tainments were the Dixie, Louisiana, South Dakota, Topeka, South Carolina, Vermont, and the Connecticut. Three hundred and fifty sailors, on shore leave, went to the Navy Y. M. C. A., where they spent several hours laugh ing at vaudeville artists. Mrs. Russell Sage paid all costs of the entertainment, but was unable to be pres ent, owing to a slight Illness. A large bunch of American Beauty roses was purchased and sent to her. with Christ mas greetings from the sailors. GEBMANS PLANNING EEUNI0N. Former Residents of Llbenau, Han over, Preparing? BIr Banq.net. Germans who have immigrated to this city from the little town- of Llbenau, Hanover, Germany, are preparing to hold a bis banquet In the near future. Plans are now In embryo, and there Is some question as to whether they will be suc cessfully carried out. Prominent among these who are arranging' for the banquet is Dr. George H. Heltmuller. Although the town of Llbenau Is very small, many persons have emigrated from it to the United States. It is estimated that there are between 300 and 600 natives of the German town now residents of this city. An attempt Is being made to arouse the Interest of Germans of tho city In the proposed banquet. If a suffi ciently large number of guests can be procured, the banquet will undoubtedly be held very soon. Minister Euan's Lectures. Mr Maurice Egan, the American Min ister to Denmark, will repeat, by re-.-est of the president of the faculty of Harvard University, his eight lectures on "Christian hymns In common use" In the winter of 1913. This course was delivered at Johns Hopkins for the Percy Turnbull Foun dation In the spring of 1911. By GEORGE FITCH Authorf o,lAt Good Old Slwash' two months in which to get up when necessary and dust off his clothes. Another reason Is the fact that men of weak and wabbly wills attempt too much. Such men should begin by swearing off on Welsh rarabits for a year. When this has been accomplished, let them swear off on mince pie of the intoxicating va- rlety. They will then find if easy to re frain for a year from spring tonics, and by the fourth year they will be able to look tho cocktail squarely In the cherry and pass it by wiin a virtuous frown providing they can -get rid of their friends.
