A i I . A _? THE USE OF BROOMS HOUSEKEEPING A FEATURE OF VACATION SCHOOL WORK. Pupils at Gveenleaf Keep Rooms Neat and Clean?Cooking Classes for Parents. Working ever on the thought of doing ?v?rythirg for themselves, the pupils; who all'nd and gain by attendance at the sum mer school at Greenleaf clean their btiild !dk from roof to basement at the close of each session Just as soon as the dismis sal gong strik?s twelve, two appointed housekeepers from each room get th<lr bro.ms and go at it. working for an hour or more gelting things shipshape. Kven Id the first grade the pupils are taught to hamile th< br-> :n and to keep things clean ly and tidy. The building contains e ght rooms proper, a carpenter shop, a type writing room. a millinery ha'l an 1 a cook room?-iiite a large establishment to be kipt in order da.i> by ehillrtn. The yards, too. art <|ulte j an it? m and are as neat, clean and orderly i as the inter!.>r of the building. One lmagims, perhaps, that all the j cloning the building m>.i:>s is th< sweeping ' of n.. :ns si.il.. 1 during the day by tin dust from th? sh?" s. This i- a mistaken Idea, for .? r.iom pil-d higher with th< waste ma terial of a day's manual labor as carried on there can hardly be imagined, in the firs place take the rooms in which wet ratii i ami raf in are worked. Think .if the dirt occasion. .1 by t!o ( WSUol dragging of v?? t strands in and uul of the tu'is of water. Take j glimpse into roems where pap? r fl.>w?rs and ornaments are made. Think of iiie cuttings flying all uvir the floors. Then The < irpenter shop with its neces sary litter of shavings and the cook ro.rm with the waste from the preparation of soups and other dishes. Take all th ? dirt mak.:ig Into consideration, then think what a t'esk th?se little ones, boys and girls, have each ila> before they gn home. Nat urally there is a minimum of trash made by the pupils from the fact that they them ?elvts keep It clean. An Item in Training. The cleaning Itself Is a big Ite.-n in train ing i he teaching them to do it belter than hefore Is another Item: but the best thing the syseni does f..r the school, for the child for the community, fur the leat her, for educa tion, Is the willingness It develops to do aoimtim.g en'irely out of the ordinary, anil that something which in many cases would be reviled by the parent as not what they ?end thur children to school to do. Will ingness. howi-v >r willingness to dust, will ingness to clean, willingness to run er rands. to do anything and everything asked of them- and children and parents both art alike in this willingness?Is one of the marked features of the Urecnleaf commun ity la one of the biggest salaries ever paid to a teaching corps. Aud it is to teach ihis desire lo help, to do?teaching It so that the force us.d in such beautiful spirit may be well siwnt-that the teachers are em ployed. Success in their efforts will be attained wheii they can get this same good will and desire to help carried into the homes. The teachers are securing what they want accomplished by having the parent with them almost as much as the child. The parents come afternoon and night, and two nights a week they have their own ctfoking classes. In these cooking clas&cs Mrs. Burns is as ready and willing to learn from the experience of these other house keepers as to teach ihen^ better and cheaper ways of living. The parent sets and hears what the child is being taught and is better able to put that child to doing those things at home than if the par ent never came to the school house and never saw what was being done. Several parents who board around the neighbor hood and have little to do in the after noons volunteered to come over and help Mrs. Burns with her juvenile classes. Trip to Forest Glen. Saturday morning last the pupils to the number of '?<(>. from the vacation school at Greenleaf. started on a delightful all-day trip to Forest Glen. They arrived at the Glen about 10:30, and from that time on till 5 o'clock the youngsters made merry. No accident occurred, and all on the return were ready to declare that "it was the best day of their lives." This trip was con ducted through the courtesy of Mr. J. Jt. Gordon, who furnished the two special cars for transportation. These trips are not conducted in the nature of charity excur sions. as all the children who go would willingly pay their own fare if necessary. The profit to the school is the delightful social intercourse among the children that the outings make possible. The next ?.rip will be to Bethesda. LOOKING FOR CHANGES. Rumors as to What May Occur in the Police Force. Members of the police department are anxiously awaiting the beginning of the fiscal year tomorrow, because of the many rumors afloat concerning prospective changes. Congress made provision for fif teen additional polio-men. ten of the sec j ond class and five of class one. Provision was also made in the appropriation bill for ten bicycle men. A number of officers ( are anxious to get the bjcycle mounts, and many others are looking for transfers or [ details, it has also been rumored that one ' or more of the lieutenants will be retired, but there was nobody at police headquar ters today who could verify the rumor. There will probably be a numbir of trans fers. and the detail at headquarters in the dettctive office will probably be Increased. It is deemed certain that all the prospective changes will not be made tomorrow, for Maj. Sylvester has not had time to give the matter proper consideration. Fire Department's New Equipment. Mr. Kobert W. Putton. chief engineer of the fire department, and Mr T. M. Robin sun, the chief machinist of the department, have returned from Stnica Falls and Ki rn ra. New York, where they went to in si?ect the plants of two lire apparatus man ufacturing concerns. Three new modern first-class tire enginrs and one new truck are to be purchased by the department dur ing the coming fiscal year, and It was with a view to looking into the methods and ex amining the details of the manufactures that the officials >>f ihf department v 3ite<l the two plants. TAKES HIS OWN LIFE GEORGE E. ERNEST SWALLOWS FATAL DOSE OF ACID. Death Results Scon After He Reaches Hospital?Had Expressed Fear of Losing Position. George E. Ernest, fifty-two years old, who whs employed as night watchman at Woodward & Lothrop's, and lived at OZ'J 11th street northeast, committed suicide about H o'clock this morning by taking a dose of carbolic acid. Mrs. Ernest found her husband in an unconscious condition and notified the police. He was hurried to the Casualty Hospital, but lived only about five minutes after reaching the institution. Coroner Nevitt investigated the case and gave the necessary death certificate. The body was removed to the late home of the deceased, from where the funeral will take place. Fear of losing his position, it is said, prompted the deed. Mr. Ernest was on duty last night as usual, and he ate break fast upon his return home this morning. After breakfast he remained about the house, and when he saw his wife looTiing after the week's wash he told her it would be the last washing she would do for him. Shortly after 9 o'clock she went upstairs and found the unconscious form of her husband stretched upon the bed. The offi cers who were summoned at once discov ered that the unfortunate man had swal lowed something that had burned his mouth. They found in his pocket a half-pint bottle in which was some carbolic acid, and it is believed he had taken nearly a gill of the fatal liquid. After returning from work this morning Mr. Ernest stated that he had been told he was to be re ported for something and that he feared the loss of his position. He seemed very despondent, but his wife did not imagine for an Instant that he contemplated sui cide. His wife and several grown children survive him. The arrangements for the funeral have not yet been made. O'Gorman Brings Pope's Gift. A dispatch from Rome yesterday says: The liight Rev. Thomas O'Gornran, bishop of Sioux Falls, S. D., when he returns to the United States will be the bearer of a letter from the pope to President Roosevelt and will take with him the pontiff's mag nificent gift to the American President, which consists of the view of the city of Rome, from the Vatican studio, done in mosaic: The idea of appointing Bishop O'Gorman apostolic delegate in the Philippines ap pears. for the present at le ast, to have been abolished, although the first suggestion of this appointment was uttered by the pope himself when he first received William H. Taft. civil governor of the Philippine Is lands. Mrs. IJzzie Kane, thirty-three years old, v\as taken suddenly ill yesterday afternoon at fith and F streets northwest. The police removed her to her home, No. 015 New Jer sey avenue southeast. k~x~x~X'<~x~x-x*<~x<~x~x<~x^~x~xk~x?<~x~x~x~x~x-<-x-x*?x-x-x V V Y I ?

From the Philadelphia The Fourth of Ju)>- w}H be along this week Friday and It -.JViill -^pubtless be cele brated with all the V/Up, Vigor and vivacity for which young America,fe famous. There will be parades anil speeches, excursions and picnics and music and fireworks with out limit. Enough money will be burned up to make an appreciable beginning on that part of the Panama canal which re mains to be dug and enough noise will be made, if it were all aggregated, to rival the explosions of Mont Ptlee and L.a Sou friere combined. This is all well enough so long as no harm comes from it. It affords a vent for the pent-up patriotism of a whole year and acts as a safety valve. But unfortunately there lias been a tendency in recent years to., forms of celebrating the day which have been followed by numerous deaths and in juries. The comparatively harmless powder cracker and the pinwheel have been suc ceeded by the toy lannon, the cannon crack er, ti>e toy pistol and the frequent use of firearms. As a consequence the newspa pers on the morning of July 5 have been compelled to record hundreds of casualties, many of which have resulted in a loss of life, in tetanus and permanent maiming. A list of the better-known casualties of this kind was printed last year by a Chicago newspaper and it made a surprising total. It will have to be repeated this year un less parents exercise more Judgment in the liberty they give their children in Fourth of July celebrations. There are plenty of ways of exhibiting patriotism without choosing those dangerous to life and llrnb. But many parents seem to be convinced that it is better-for a child to go through life with one eye, or a mutilated hand or bereft of a limb rather than not run some risk in displaying the fervor of patriotism. Such parents will give their children toy pistols, cannon crackers and firearms next Friday. The other sort of parents will not. Death of Turfman Sam Bryant. A dispatch from Louisville, Ky., yester day says: "Sam" Bryant, one of the best known turfmen In the country, died of dropsy at his home in this city fast night after a long Illness. His end was hastened by the faot that he insisted on going to Chicago to see the American Derby run a week ago, though he had to be carried to the train on a stretcher and then was ad vised that he was near death.
