'NEW LESSON' WELCOMED Parents Make No Objection to Plan of Superintendent of Schools Davidson. The old saying; that "The old order is Her giving wav to the new." will fur ther be substantiated in the public schools of the District beginning; with to-morrow, when the recent mandate of Superintendent of Schools Davidson re jrardlnc the teaching of dancing in the public schools goes into effect... Ileginnlng to-morrow In all of the fifth nnd sixth grade rooms of the city schools n lsitor will witness the unusual spec tacle of forts or fifts boys and girls dancing a sort of a. rhythm dance with their teacher The Idea of inculcating in school chil dren the sense or rhythm by means of physical exercises accompanied by music Is an innovation in the Washington t-chools It Is in accordance with the regressive ideas of Superintendent avidson Supt, Davidson vesterday said that he predicted the Idea would take with the children and prove popular with the teachers For some dajs the teachers of the lower grades have been trying to instill in their charges the idea of combining phvsical motions with music, but tho joungnters In these grades are most too joung to do much dancing, and it Is now left for the teachers In the llfth and sixth grades to really start the movement Aiunecment Afforded. The new idea has not onlv afforded nmuscment for the children, but It has caused the teachers muih merriment, who In oft hours have practiced In order to be efficient In Instructing their hareei rarcnt at home seeing the joung teachers going through strange movements and -triking queer altitudes were at a loss to understand the mean ing of it all They were at a loss to understand the Ferious expression: and the earnestness displayed b the voung teachers In their tfToits to master the new ' study llrst the could not comprehend 1 Mich foollhnesh tould benefit a school child As the teacher became more adept nnd graceful In the new science thev came to agree with Dr Davidson that It would grcatlv benefit the young ster. No complaints against the new Idea have been made to Dr Davidson, and It Is expected that tho teachers will rive as much enjoyment out of it as the oungstcrs. except tho few awkward sind few admit being an) such thing even to themselves INDLANIANS CELEBRATE.

Ansa Eiwell mailed no picture of ner self. and It Is stated that she destroyed all of her pictures before swallowing the acid. As soon as the editor comprehended the contents of the letter from Miss Elwell, he notified Capt. Charles Peck. or the second Precinct, who sent Po liceman Hughlett to the apartments. Hughlett created a bit of excitement when he asked permission to search the apartment for the body of the young woman who had committed sui cide. A glance through the transom was enough to tell the policeman that Miss Elwell was dead. Hughlett removed the glass window In the transom and climbed over the door. On the table with the note addressed to Coroner Nevltt was a letter to a Mrs. Dlrfrnderfer. who sublets the various rooms of the apartment. Mrs. Diffendcr fer asserts that the contents of the letter deal entirely with matters of business, relating to Miss Elwell's room rental. Another letter was addressed to the father-in-law of the man whom Miss Elwell loved. The fathcr-ln-law, when asked the contents of the letter, de clared he could not divulge Miss Elwell's message of farewell He asserted that he considered the contents sacred be cause the writer was dead. It Is be lieved that this letter was written for tho purposo of Injuring Miss Elwell's former lover in the eyes of his fathcr-ln-law.

"The gymnasium costume must con sist of white shirt and white running trousers', with white shoes. "AH athletic rpparel must be washed as soon as it shows dirt. "Members disregarding these rules will be excluded from the privileges of the physical department-" "Men come to the gymnasium to ac quire health and physical fitness," said Mr. Beckett. In discussing his new rules yesterday. "But It Is not recognized by the general public that a gymnasium, unless carefully watched, can become a breeder of disease. For many years we have enforced the rule that no one suffering from consumption or social dis eases may Join the physical branch of the Y. M. C. A. We have also tried to keep the gymnasium sanitary by fre quent and thorough cleanings But I noticed that a few men were not as careful about their personal hygiene In the gymnasium as the physical staff was about the floor and apparatus. The new rules are made operative to safeguard the rights of the general membership against the carelessness of these few."

It would be illegal for steamship companies to announce that they would or would not maintain a certain schedule of rates for a given time because they would thereb' subscribe to an agreement In restraint of trade, Curtis said the Forto RIcan steamship combine gives all shippers equal treat ment, except on large contracts, lr contract cases, some of the shippers. In cluding the I'nited States government, got a discount of 3 per cent If II. Harrlman who Is the president of the Insular Line, told the committee he got twenty dollars a month for his ser vices, the reason being that he Is only a dunimv president.
