Women's Clubs to Observe More Care in Selecting Agents. CHICAGO, May 16.?Members of wom en's clubs and others Interested in work for charity are trying to figure out a way to prevent "Tag day" romances. They declare that previous Tag days, which were fruitful in raising funds for charity, lacked at times in respect for marriage vows and tender years. Women interested are agreed on one point, and that is that more care must be taken in recruiting the "taggers." It has been decided that young girls will be objects of discrimination, and the girl with both youth and a husband is under consideration. Mrs. F. L. Rossbach, president of the New Future Association, In discussing plans for "Posy day," which will be held June 1, last night said: "This commer cialization of the attractiveness of young girls on 'Tag day' has proved disastrous more than once. We will have none of it, for we purpose to establish a discretion ary age limit for taggers." Take Note of This The World's Greatest Water Fete and Car nival will be held ift Detroit July 22 to 27.

SCHOOL FORCED TO USE BUS National Cathedral Put to Large Expense in Conveying Day Pupils, Says Princapal. Declaring that the Washington Railway and Electric Company should run through cars over the Wisconsin avenue line and thence to a terminal point at the Union station, a large number of residents of the northwest suburbs, in cluding Cleveland Park and Tenleytown. appeared before the District electric railway commission yesterday afternoon in support of the petition recently filed by Attorney R. H. McNeil, asking that the railway company be required to furnish this service. Mrs. Barbour Walker, principal of the National Cathedral School for Girls' at Mount St. Alban; N. I. Stone, chief statistician of the tariff board and representing the Cleveland Park School Association; Prof. Mitchell 'Carroll of the George Washington Uni versity; Warren Biggs, president of the Biggs Heating Company, and others were included in the list of protestants. Thomas W. Smith, member of the rail way commission, and John H. Marble, secretary of the interstate commerce com mission, conducted the hearing, while Secretary Bowen and Treasurer Ham of the Washington Railway and Electric Company and W. H. Taibott of Rock ville appeared for the railway company. The latter is attorney of the Washing ton and Rockville Railway Company, a subsidiary corporation of the Washington Railway and Electric Company. Long Wait for Cars. When suburban cars arrive at O street, the witnesses declared, patrons have to wait at times five minutes for a city car to carry them up to Dupont Circle and into the central part of the city. It was also stated that the m'otormen of the P street line seem to take a par ticular delight in "running away" from suburbanites who are leaving the Wiscon sin avenue cars and attempting to get on the car going to the central part of the city. "They even give us a big 'Ha! Ha!' as they leave us at the corner," said Mr. Stone. In attesting to the crowded condition of the cars, Mr. Stone declared at one point in his testimony, "I never saw a car on the line that was not filled above its seat ing capacity." Mrs. Walker said that the National Ca thedral School is now put to large ex pense to keep in service a bus to convey pupils of the school who reside at their nomes in the city from Dupont Circle to | the schooL She said that if a through car i system were installed the pupils of the school who use the cars to any great ex tent would be materilly benefited as we.l am the boarding pupils, who, when going to a theater, have to charter a special car. Says Officials Would Have Acted. Soon after the hearing opened Presi dent King of the Washington Railway and Electric Company made a statement in which he declared that if the pro testants had come to the officials of the company with the data they were pre senting to the commission he was sure the officials would have done all in their power to rectify conditions without the necessity of having the commis sion hear the case. He said he regretted they had not taken this action and thus given the railway company the considera tion he thought should be accorded to it as a common carrier trying to do its duty by the patrons residing along its lines W. H. Lamar, who resides at Rockville, also made a short statement to the com mission In which he declared he does not favor any change In the schedule if it will affect the present schedule for through cars from the Maryland town to the M street terminal of the line. After being in session all afternoon Mr. Marble announced at 6 o'clock that other complainants would be heard by the coin mission next Wednesday afternoon at '2 o'clock. MOUNTAIN LIFE DRAMA BY, COLLEGE STUDENTS Neat Sum Bealized for Southern In dustrial Educational Association. Despite the threatening weather which prevented an open-air .performance, a large audience witnessed two successful dramatizations presented last night by the students of Washington College, .'id and T streets northeast, for the benefit of the Southern Industdial Educational Association in its work among the white mountain children of the south. Tfie entertainment comprised a drama tization of "Old Andy the Moonshiner," by Mrs. Martha S. Gielow, founder and vice president of the Southern Industrial Educational Association, and a "Moun tain Pageant of Symbolic Figures" The large auditorium of the college where the performances were presented was prettily decorated with spring flowers and colors, while the stage showed a forest setting on the slope of a southern mountain. Both performances depicted life among the mountaineers, and the pageant gave splendid opportunities for fancv dances and songs, the scene sup posing to tell of a people "lost in the woods." Historic characters such as Andrew Jackson. David Crockett, Abraham Lin coln, Daniel Boone and other famous men born in the mountains were cleverly portrayed. About 100 girls participated in the performances, and a neat sum was realized. , . Miss Arline Shackelford read the pro gram of the pageant, and after the per-: formance an Informal reception was held.1 The patronesses were as follows: Mrs. J. T IJovd. Mrs. W. E. Humphrey. Mrs. Odell Smith. Mrs. Charles Wood, Mrs. George W. White, Mrs. M. B. Mercer, Mrs. W. T. Gill. Mrs. Henry B. F. Mac farland, Mrs. Agnes D. Jenks, Mrs. Wil liam H. Saunders, Mrs. C. R.

CINCINNATI, Ohio, May 16.?A black snake which a number of male students at Antioch College here caught and were to use for dissecting purposes was skinned, soaked in salt water and later fried, and now the majority of those who partook of the dinned are a scared lot. fearful lest their escapade may *re sult disastrously for them. The decision to serve the reptile for dinner came after several hours of dis cussion, when one of the number sug gester the idea, which he thought would be in line with numerous other pranks done by college students. The students approved of the plan and gathered enough provisions to complete the meal, but the course most looked for was the snake.

PJ^RIS, May 16.?Bullet holes round yesterday in the left temples of both Octave Garnier, the real leader, and Val let, the last, of the notorious auto bandits, who were found dead after a three-hour battle with 5,000 police and soldiers, led to the belief that the two men killed , themselves when the attacking forces entered the villa at Nogent-sur-Marne, four miles from Paris, after It was blown up with melinite. It is said that Garnier and Vallet were planning a coup similar to that of March 25, when five of the bandits, in a taxjcab they stole after killing the chauffeur, robbed the Societe Generale in Chantilly of $10,000 and murdered two clerks. An accomplice, who was on his way to arrange the details, was arrested by gendarmes at the Northern Railway Jppot, and it is believed that he betrayed nls pals. Although the bandit gang had no picked leader, it is known that Garnier, not Bon not. was the prime mover In the atrocities which shocked all France. Band May Be Extinct. It is believed that with the deaths of Garnier and Vallet the band is extinct. The occupants of luxurious automobiles who on leaving the theater Tuesday night determined to 'go to Nogent-sur-Marne to see the excitement over the killing or capture of the two bandits were disap pointed, as it was impossible to pierce the crowd which had already assembled. -? No two descriptions as to what took place agree, but the result upon which all agree is tha^ the two bandits were killed and they were taken to tlfc morgue with fatal wounds which were undoubt edly self-inflicted. Four policemen are also in the hospital, but only one of these, Inspector Fleury, is in a serious condi tion. Woman Kept Prisoner. Throughout the siege the Schoofs woman remained a prisoner in a neigh boring villa, where Chief Detective Guichard examined her. She contradicted the first statement she made?that the bandits were poorly armed?by saying they had more than a thousand cartridges and that they knew the police would blow them up like Bonnot and were determined to die with their boots on. Although it was only a repetition of the experience at Choisy le Roi, the in effectiveness of dynamite caused great disappointment. The first cartridge was exploded at 7:55. The next one missed fire at ?:30. Two were exploded between 10:15 and 10:60, but appeared to do no harm. Then melinite was brought into use. The first cartridge misfired. Final ly at 1:45 a.m. forty petards of thirty five grams each made a breach in the side of the t house, but left the walls up right. STIMS0N ASKS FOB "MOKE." In Need of Funds for Supplying Rations to Soldiers. *The United States Army appeared in the role of Oliver Twist yesterday when the Secretary of War, having once received an enormous sum for feeding the soldiers, was forced to send a letter to the House of Representatives asking for "more." Unless the Congress acts more gener How much per Year ?for Shoes? SHOE Service, like Salary, Invest ment, or Income, should be reckoned by the year. Few people have ever considered this vital point in Shoe buying. The average pair of fine Shoes ($4.00 to $5.00 grade) will wear continuously about 1280 hours, before re-soling or repair are necessary. That's about 3 Months continuous Wear, every day for 14 hours per day, ? without wearing other Shoes. Few indeed are the fine Shoes that exceed this, when actual time of Wear is reckoned. And the $3.50 shoe of the present cannot be expected to average it. BUT, even if a $3.50 pair did deliver that continuous 3 Months of average Wear, such Shoes would cost you $14.04 per year, for pre-repair Wear. Now compare this with the 1912 Regal Shoe offer, which is? "ARISTOCRAT" Model Russet, also Blk. Calf Price ?Six-Months Continuous Wear of Out soles and Upper Leather (equal to 2560 Con secutive Hours), for $U.50 per pair. ?Just 75 cents per Month (or $9.00 per year), for high-grade, stylish "Regal Shoe" quality and Service. That fixed minimum of Wear pledged to you in a legal "Bond" which goes with each pair, and is practically unconditional. Style and Fit of these Shoes you can judge for yourself, before purchasing. Term of Wear is clearly defined, and absolutely secured to you?in this Bond. Why,'then should you pay $1U.
