Flies Carry Paralysis Germ,
Scientists Show by Monr
key Tests. v
That flies arc carriers of the germ of infantile
paralysis has been definitely determined,
it is announced by Dr. John F.
Anderson, director of the hygienic laboratory,
and Passed Assistant Surgeon Wade
If. Frost in a series of experiments eon- '
ducted on monkeys, reports of which have '*
just been forwarded to the United States '
public health service. The conclusions *
reached by Dr. Anderson and Dr Frost n
confirm the woik done by Dr. Milton J. 2
I
Rosenau, formerly of the public health
service, but now a member of the faculty w
of Harvard University.
The report gives the result of experi- "
ments with three monkeys which, after ^
being exposed to the biles <>f flics which
at the same time were allowed daily to
bite two monkeys inoculated with virus j
of the disease, developed typical symp- j
turns or polh ly. litis seven, eight and nine
days, respectively, from the date of their
first exposure. In each case the diag- '
nosis was continued by an autopsy. Fur-|
j ther experiments will be necessary to de-t'1
termiue whether this is the only or usual z?
j method of transmission of the malady. j f;

described psychic existence, as he understands
it, to be composed of many
different spheres, non-existent to each
other, of. varying degrees of perfection, in
which there are also distinct planes of
spiritual life.
"When the psychic being is freed from
its confining shell by death." Dr. Getsinger
said, it levitates to its plane
corresponding with its thought life' on
earth. Man himself is but the debris ot f
the prima! world, shaped by the Divine

i
Plans to relieve the merchants of

inventions by havinj? Congress ap
ropriate $50,000 each year as a "con- ]
ention fund" were discussed at the i
leoting of the Briglitwood Park Citiens'

as unanimously adopted:
"That we ask the honorable Commissioners
of the District of Columia

lie current District of Columbia esImatcs
to Congress for the securing j
nd entertainment of conventions to be j
eld in Washington during the years ]

[ solution to tlie Federation of Citi- I
ns' Associations. In the event of!
ivorable action by the federation, the!
'commendation for the fund will go i

ody.
William McK. Clayton, in an address!
jppoiting the resolution, said that it was!
npossible for Washington to obtain any I
f the larger conventions because the city I

as benefited by the conventions.
Resolution on Merger.
The association also expressed itself as

By Thorntor
'"Thief; thief! thief!" Old Granny Fox,
trotting along a eowpath in the Old Pasture
on the edge of the mountain, heard it
land grinned. Roddy Fox. sitting in the
doorway of their new home undeifthe great
rocks in the midst of the thickest clump of
| bushes and young trees heard it. too, and
I he grinned even more broadly than Granny
J Fox. It sounded good to him, did that
| harsh scream, for it was the lirst time
| he had heard the voice of a single one
of the little meadow and forest people
since lie ;ind Granny Fox had moved up
to the lonesome Old Pasture.
I "Now, 1 wonder what has brought
Sammy Jay way up here?" said Reddy
as he limped out to the edge of the thick
tangle ot bushes and young trees. Pretty
soon he caught sight of a wonderful coat
of bright blue with white trimmings.
"Hi, .Sammy Jay? What are you doing
up here?" shouted Reddy Fox.
Sammy Jay heard him and hurried over
to where Reddy Fox was sitting.
"Hello, Reddy Fox! How are you feeling?"
said Sammy Jay.
"Reiter, thank you. What are you doing
'way up here in this lonely place?"
replied Reddy.
"It's a long story," said Sammy Jay.
"Tell it to me." begged Reddy Fox.
So Sammy Jay told him all about the
trouble-lie had had on the Green Meadows
and in the Green Forest, and how hardly
any one would speak to him because they
said that he kept them awake by screaming
in the night, lie told how he had sat
up all niglit anil liad herd what sounded
like iiis own voice when all the time he
was sitting with his month shut as tight
as tight could be. Then lie told about
Rlaeky the Crow's plan, which was that
Sammy should come to the old Pasture
COAL SCARCE IN CML
Car Shortage on Railroads
May Cause Prices to
Increase.
Washington coal dealers stated today
that the annual fall shortage of cars is
bringing about something resembling a
coal famine in this city. The railroads,
according to 11lie local dealers in coal,
are using all available cars for transnortinc
erons to market, and as a result
comparatively little coal is being handled
by the roads.
Prices for the various grades of coal
used in Washington, it is stated, have not
advanced as yet, but a continuance of
present conditions is likely to bring about
a general increase. The only changes
notfd thus far are in the better grades
of soft coal and in stove-size anthracite,
each of which are about 115 cents a ton
higher than at this time last year. Other
sizes of anthracite, such as egg, nut and
pea, remain at former prices.
Practically all of the coal now coining
into Washington, it was stated today,
has been contracted for since last spring
or summer, and dealers are simply doing
the best they can to till these long-standing
ofders.
Stocks arc becoming depleted, and unless
th<- car shortage eases up and it becomes
possible to haul coal in quantities
within a week or so it is beilevcd a gen-j
era I advance iu prices will be unavoidable.

people of the Greer. Meadows and the j
Green Forest heard screams in the night i
they would know that it was not Sammy j
Jay who was waking them up. Roddy j
Fox chuckled as l:e listened. You know
misery likes company, and it tickled Roddy
to think that some one else had been
forced to leave the Green Meadows and
I the Green Forest.
That night Sammy Jav found a comfortable
place which seemed quite safe
in which to go to sleep. Just after jolly,
round, red Mr. Sun went to bod behind
the Purple Hills, Sammy saw 1 loonier the

Sammy screamed twice. Roomer heard
him and down he came with a rush.

SEE VICTORY AHEAD
Hotel Workers to Continue
Their Strike Indefinitely.
NOT ADVOCATING VIOLENCE
Declare Majority of Strikebreakers
Belong to Union.
WILL OBEY WALK-OUT ORDERS
But Little Disorder Reported, and
No Trouble, Barring Two Incidents
Last Night.
Paul ?"avanaugh. secretary of Washington
Late a 1 No. - of t!.<* International Hotel
Workers* I'nion, the members of which
are now on a strike. claimed this morning
that the majority of the strikebreakers,
mostly colored, who are now working in
the italeigh and New Willard Hotels and
the ?'al"e 11 j ?11 >Ii?tl1,* are member* of tie ,
union. and will ouit the.r jobs as soon as
the union thinks it advisable. I'nlees tnej
hotel proprietors come to terms. Mr
Cavanaugh stated, the men will he called |
out, but he was not in a position to sa\
at what tittle the call will he made.
The onion secretary further said that j
tite union was not advocating violence, as!
had been report < d, but on the contrary;
the strikers had been instructed not to
participate in rioting of any kind, but]
conduct the strike on a business basis. ]
Mr. Cavanaugh declared that the local]
union i> in "? iur niutiiri u t'OiUllllmi IH>*\
than when the strike started ami tiiat as
long as may be nvcessaiy the men can
stay out.
Special meetings ate being held from
early morning: until late at night at
the strike headquarters. l-J-'H ?1 street
northwest, where testimony is being
taken ol" employes of various ltouses in
the city. a mass meeting of the strikers
will be hehl this afternoon in t'ostello's
Hall, at which time only holders
of union cards will be admitted.
Future Plans Not Determined.
Whether it will be decided to eall out
any more of tile employes of the houses
already affected or call out the employes
of Jiouscs not yet molested is problematical.
The headquarters this morning
were crowded Isith with men and
women, and all seemed optimistic. it.
Richards, president of the local, and
hl<lward Blochinger. organizer of the international.
were busy instructing pickets.
Whether committees from the
union will ask for an interview wit It
liie hotel managers or not is undecided.
The managers, however, say they will
not recognize the union, nor uili they
under any circumstances take back the
strikers.
The strikers claim that members of the
inion who are .-till working, hut who will
ins we r a second strike eall. if necessary,
tavc "tipped off" tite union to all of the
novements of the managers. When one of
he employes who is not a member of th^
in:<>n h aves his work for home he is folowed
by one of the pickets. The duty of
he picket, it is said, is to learn whele
he man livts and to try to get him to
oin the union, but. not necessarily to
iuit his job immediately. He fa instructed(
o wait until he receives further orders. I
The strike, which now has been on fori
hrec da>s. has been attended by very]
ittle disorder.'
