The House Gives Up Recess Plan
At President's Request.
The President yesterday afternoon asked the House to postpone
its proposed recess until definite action is taken upon his iccommen
dation regarding the railroad wage question.
The wisdom of this course is plain. The House managers
promptly repealed the resolution providing for the recess. Leaders
in the House late yesterday expressed themselves as believing that
they should immediately arrange a program of legislation dealing
with the momentous internal questions.
The Herald yesterday morning pointed ont that it would be a
mistake for the Honse to take leave at a time when the people were
expecting relief from high prices, workmen were demanding adjust
ment of wages and affairs of the country generally were in an upset
condition. The Herald also said that it believed the President would
have a message for Congress in a short time and the House should
be here to receive it. Developments have borne out our prediction.
Legislating is more of a serious business now than ever before,
and the days of the old-time Congress that packed its bags and
scooted ont of Washington at the first signs of a rise in the ther
mometer are past.
If the Honse had refnsed to give np its vacation plans the affront
would have been not alone to the President, but to the American
people.
No doubt Lieut "Hardboiled" Smith has moments when he
wishes he had been served sunny side up.
Want Whipping Post Restored?
At the con\ention ot the newly-organized Federation of Profes
sional Business Women's Clubs in St. Louis, Miss Hannah Quinbv, a
lawyer, of Columbus Ohio, urged the restoration by legislative en
actment of the whipping po^t for the punishment of wife beaters.
Her proposal is said to have been due to recent incidents in Colum
bus, in which abusive and vicious husbands had been shown too much
mercy.
In this country, at least, wife beaters are not so numerous as to
be able U> offer strong opposition to any legislation such as that pro
posed: and it ir. improbable that any sentimental objection would be
developed among men not given to wife beating. Any such objection
without doubt could be overcome by the introduction of a bill pro
\idin^ .:l?o tor the restoration ot the ducking stool ior scolds.
This form ot punishment went out of fashion in the early part
ci the eighteenth century, though it was used occasionally so late as
ti:c nineteenth, and is still employed rarely in Delaware and Maty
land. It i* not more than 100 years since wives commonly were sold
in the public squares of old market towns in "England.
The ducking stool was a chair with the legs sawed off (such as
often now is used in the stern ot a rowboat for the convenience of
women passengers), secured'to one end of a plank, balanced, like a
teeter. t;r,on a po-t s"t ir.to the ground, often under water, over which
the -tool was suspended by means of a weight attached to the other
end of the plank, hanging over the land. The scold was tied in the
chair, and by releas4ng the weight she was dipped in the water, to
the waist or the i;hin, according to the depth of. it.
Sir Walter Scott tells of a similar engine of punishment, known
as the "cucking stool,? the castigator, tumbrel, trcbuchet, and often,
"rot so correctly," the ducking stool. In this the offenders were
fastened, usually in front of the doors of their houses, to be pelted
and hooted at by the mob, "and sometimes to be taken to the water
and ducked."
Not only scold?, but dishonest tradesmen (the Knglish term for
storekeepers) were punished in the cucking stool; and in these days
of much talk about "profiteering" there would seem to be special
rca.-on for putting it in service again.
And now we can demonstrate our idealism by paying Colombia
that $j=.ooo,ooo before the league is ready to make the world safe for
imall nations.
An Impossibility.
There was a wouid-bc purist who gave this rule?"Avoid Latin
derivation's; use terse, pure, simple Saxon."
.. . How impossible his advice is may be brttcr understood when you
rtafoe that the majority of the words used in his rule are derived
from Latin words.
Our language, our habits, our customs and even our thoughts are
?uch a mingling of Creek, Latin, French, Saxon, Chinese, Indian and
l dozen others that none can be a "purist" in anything.
And, it is better that way.
This country is great partially because it is made up of a race
hat represents the more prominent traits of practically all the peo
jles ot the earth.
Why even the merchandise in our stores come from every corner
jf the earth. Some modified, some just as it first saw light on its
latfve heath.
Yes, it would be impossible to use "terse, pure, simple Saxon."
We wish to remain on friendly terms with Japan, but?er, those
>attleihips went through the canal in ten hours.
Ships and Shoes; Shoes and Ships.
Ships, to millions of American citizens, are merely something for
tditors to write about.
But shoes are, these days, something for everybody to get in
erested in.
And yet numbers of us arc likely to go barefooted because of the
hipping situation.
Experts of the shoe trade say that the prices of shoes are going
o before unknown heights.
Thirty dollars a pair for ordinary shoes, they assert, is entirely
?robable in the near future.
And at thirty dollars a pair a lot of American families will 00
hoeless.
These experts say the leather supply of the country was cut off by
he war, and that today, because of the lack of ships, tens of thousands
hides are rotting in South American ports that would solve our
hoe problem if they couH only be shipped in. '
After our experience with the coffee trust of Brazil we are in
Itned to doubt that the prices of shoes would fall, even if South
imerican leather did arrive.
Somebody down there, or up here, would probably corner the
tipply and gouge us all.
But anyway, there isn't enough leather for the nation's needs and
hoes are likely to be impossible for many families.
So you see, ships and shoes are all tied up in the same package.

Y ork may soon be o^n a tipless
bails. Who knows? a yea* ago
the town would have laughed at
the idea of a Uquorless village. But
| It is here.
^altera are already complaining
of small tips. The reckless spender
; on Broadway Is no more. A few
before dinner cocktails always
j made for a big tip and If a couple
| of bottles of grape were popped
during the ceremony the waiter
j could stop his limousine on his
way home and buy the wife a new
y>onnet at the midnight hat shop
I near the Winter Garden.
I __ Three -"waiters quit at the
I Knickerbocker the other day be
cause some of their old luncheon
patrons who used to flush up an
j appetite with a bevy of Martinis
f began to tip only 10 per cent of.
i their luncheon check when prohibl
J tlon arrived. They used to be good
j for a dollar a day tip.
j Several meetings have been held
by waiters employed at the cafes of
(the Plaza. Rltz and Waldorf to dis
j cuss ways and means of seeing
j w-hat-the-hellsbells could he done
about the thing. Many of the wait
I ers (<f the haughtier set may have
J to give up their summer homes and
J return to town for the torrid term.
Tips, it is estimated, are falling
j about (25.000 short a day along
Broadway. And as for the poor
j hat checkers they will soon have to
| take up honest work again. Very
few are eating out and those who
I do are not tipping anything to
speak of.
But it is an ill wind. etc. The

little harvest of their own. With

j given to the servants.
1 The passing on of John Fox. Jr..
a distinct loss to the New York
; writing fraternity. He was a novelist
? who always tried to boost his brothers
in the profession. A great deal or
j his time was spent here in the winter.
I One of his closest friends ts Charles
! Dana Gibson, the artist. He was a
j preat after dinner .speaker. The last
: time I saw him was at a dinner at
j the Salmagundi (Tub on lower Fifth
I Avenue. He was at the same table
and Frank Casey, of Collier's, told
| of hearing that a well known writer
, on how to do certain things and still
j be happy was going to write a book
, to be called: "Love and Be Chaste.'
j ' How does he spell the last word?"
! asked Mr. Fox quickly.
? In some ways New York is a funny
; old place. It differs vastly from the
I old home town. Out there one does
not worry a>bout a place to put things.
You lean out the window and throw
! * banana peeling in the street. But
| in New York if you throw a cigarette
' or ctgar butt out the window, it either
1 sets lire to the awning or strikes the
i nose of a lady on the street. Result:
j The tossee is either taken into custody
I by the Fire Department, dispossessed
! by the landlord, or fined in court for
i disorderly conduct. In New York,
j ashes, garbage, packing cases and the
like must cither tro into the street at
? midnight, be hidden under the piano
j or thrown down the laundry chute.
j Dancing has not as yet received Its
: death blow. Many of the dancing
j plnr^s say they are making money on
soft drinks but the despised cover
prharge is coming back. The latest
; fox trot, bv the way. is "By the Camp

| Courtesy, from the genial proprietor. ?
Klie Sheetz, down to the most lowly)
chocolate dipper, reigns over the.
j eighty-seven Martha Washington !
I candy stores now established as
I healthy offsprings from his historic
store in this city located at 60i i
: Twelfth street northwest.
Mr. Sheetz. sometimes called the;
"millionaire fifor," and honored in
Washington bec ause of his phllan-;
1 thropic activities, has organized his
various establishments in such a fam- !
ily spirit and so generated good will !
in his customers that he has never
had to resort to advertising to sell
good goods. He has always had ail I
j the business he could handle.
1 Combination of business and pleas- |
ure has proven to be good business .
for Mr. Sheetz. who has certainly i
worked out a successful recipe along
these lines. Mr. Sheelz lives next;
door to his store, his house being i
gorgeously furnished along Colonial
lines, containing: many rare historic i
fixtures.
Eighteen years ago Mr Sheetz first
put the Martha Washington candies
on the market. He says that the ?
discovery of his formula was a mis- 1
takr?one of those white flashes of|
error which have more than once
turned out phenomenal. But morel
than the mistake in discovering the'
formula, Mr. Sheetz dwells on the fact
that when he was asked what kind
the mismade randy was. he said, on
the spur of the moment: "Martha
Washington." Right there, Mr. Sheetz
says, I made J100.i?00.
Mr. Sheetz only day before yester-'
day motored to Pittsburgh to "attend
the opening of one of his new stores, i

HOW TO FIGHT THE
DEVIL
By the RfT. ( h?rlfi Stflllf.
$tnfT Writer on Keliftloa* Toplm.
One of the mysteries of the Bible
record is the story of how Jeeup
could have been tempted to sin !
when it is said that he was sinless
and perfect.
Let's remember?and thia should
comfort most of us?that it Is not
sinful to be tempted?it is sinful
only when we yield to temptation.
Temptation!* test us. They tested
Jesus. It is an inspiration to know
that he was 'tempted In all points
like as we are"?that's why He can
help us when we're tempted.
Jesus was tempted three tim^s;
first, through bodily appetite; sec
ond. to gain noble ends by false
methods: third, to gam success by
wrong doing
And this about sums up the vari
ety of ways in which Satan tempts
us.
How did Jesus overcome tempta
tion? Did He argue? No. He
quoted the Bible. He commanded
Satan to depart. Resist the devil1
and he will flee from you.
What happened then? Here's
what the Bible pays: Angels minis
tered unto Him They supplied Him
with food. He would not turn,
stones into bread at the command
of Satan: now He was fed by angels.i
He would not call on the angel* to
uphold Him as He hurled himself
rashly from tbe top of th*? moun
tain. but now He was sustained by
them. He demanded worship for
God alone, and now He received
service from these .servants of God
Just as Jesus was tempted?and :
overcame, go may we likewise win
against the assault* of the devil?
and in the same way.
GRAVEDIGGERS HERE
SATISFIED WITH PAY
? ?
In some American cities today it is
becoming difficult to get buried. Grave
diggers want more pay, m many
places. But Washington's little band
of gravediggers are satisfied with
their pay and intend to stick on the
job.
Shovel wielders on Long Island are
the latest to strike. They want U a
day and a six-day week. One can
have a final resting place scooped out
in W ashington for the same rate de- 1
manded by the Long Islanders.
Budapest Will Decide
On Fate of Bela Kun
Vienna. Aug. 1.?Final decision is

mand of the allies that Bela Kun

er. Emissaries of Bela Kun. it was
learned today, have offered preat
concessions if the Soviet is undis- '
turbed, but British Commissioner
Cunningham on behalf of the allies,

Children Treated Money as Plaything.
The statement of Dr. W. E. MOSHF.R before the Senate rom
mittee investigating the high cost of living, that one of the basi
causes for the present tall prices for commodities is the great volutin
of paper money that has been floated since the war began, recalled t?
DANIEL L. SCHULTZ, a Confederate veteran, conditions in Rich
mond at the close of the civil war. The late JULIUS BAUMGAR
TEN of this city, was at the head of the Bureau of Engraving an<
Printing of the Confederacy, and his large force of experts were iep
busy night and day printing paper money. Everyone had ao amp1<
supply of the "bluebacks," as paper money was termed, but there wai
a woeful shortage of the necessities of life. Just before Richmom
was evacuated, flour, if it could be ^ound. was quoted at $3,000 a bar
rel, Mr. SCHULTZ said. Beefsteak, which was as scarce as th<
proverbial hen's teeth, sold at $1,500 to $1,600 per roast, while othe
foodstuffs were sold at proportionately high rates. Small childret
made playthings of $10 bills as few storekeepers would accept sucl
a small denomination even for a handful of peanuts. When th?
Union troops entered the city mobs pillaged the warehouses wher?
profiteers had stored great quantities of commodities, and for th<
nonce nearly everybody had a square meal.
Local Industry That is Flourishing.
Recalling the advice of P. T. MORAN. the Georgetown philos
opher, as to the advisability of establishing many chicken farms in th?
suburbs of Washington. 1 am ?rminded by a letter from my old-time
friend WILLIAM RILEY, 2200 Minnesota avenue^southwest, Randlt
Highlands, that he has gone into chicken and egg "farming.'' and ha<
a delightful place in the highlands. He suggests that I write some
thing about old "Frogtown,' the section lying just south of the Capi
tol, and recall* the gang of hill boys sitting on a big stone slab ic
front of Dan Sweeney's door singing the popular songs of the da*
with the deep-throated frogs responding with a deep basso echo
chorus from the bogs of "Frogtown " He also recalls when the largf
brick building at the front of Capitol Hill. First and B streets south
west, was occupied as a car barn by the Capital Traction Railway
Company, when the cars were hauled by horses, and it ^as necrs>ar\
to emplov hill Worses to assist locomotion up hills and steep grade*
WILL RILEY was once on the police force. He now is an employ
of the torpedo shop, Washington navy yard "Captain, come over arc
spend the evening with me and the chickens," is the conclusion of his
interesting letter.
Congressman From Nowhere and Everywhere.
\ brisk stranger wearing a linen suit and an air of i*npe'tane?
tried to make his way to the floor of the House while that bodv wa?
in session, according to SAM R. DORSF.N . \\ hen a doorkeeper
tried to restrain the impulsive fellow he became insistent in his de
mand to be allowed to proceed to the forbidden chamber.
"Are vou a Congressman?" the doorWeeper asked.
"Yes, "sir," came the reply, "I'm the new member from nowhere in
particular and everywhere in general."
As a policeman approached the fellow moved along the corridor,
while an observant bystander remarked:
"Where did he get it in a dry town'"
?
If you don't have to work hard for your
money,
If you can alwa\"s get plenty when you
need it,
If you are sure that old age will find you
well supplied with funds, THEN vewt don't
need to save. But OTHERWISE the best
way to make sure of comfort in the future is
to deposit some amount in our Savings De
partment every week NOW.
We will be glad to serve you.
