Hard Work
It's hard to swat the lyre red
hot. and keep the blamed thing
twanging, when you've got a cold,
?with aches untold around your
brainpan hanging. I have the
grippe, and bark and yip, until I
scare the neighbors, still I must
do. the long day through, my
"literary" labors. My lungs are
lame and all my frame seems sore
and dislocated: I cough and
sneeze and bite my knees in
anguish unabated. Yet I must
raise my locoed lays, some opti
mism springing, and urge the toffs
who have no coughs to keep on
dancing, singing. My eyes are
red. my aching head feels like a
foot ball seedy, and when I speak
my pulleys creak, my voice isj
hoarse and weedy: I sob, I pant.!
kerchoo and rant, I whoop and j
squeak and strangle, my works
arc punk throughout my trunk,
my nerves are all a-jangle. I
punch the lyre, but there's no fire;
or rapture in my swatting: the!
winged steed is lame indeed, and'
stumbles when he's trotting.
Don\ roast too hard the halting
bard, or load him down with
cursin'. you do not know how
much of woe he mav have on his
person. WALT MASON.

WEATHER FOR EASTER
IS LIKELY 10 EE BAD
Not Much Encouragement in the
Preliminary Forecast Issued
by Bureau.
Prospects for the annual "Easter para?l*
in Washington?and In other parts of lli*> j
country as Well?received a severe j??lt j
last night when the weather bureau ?lln
covered two wholly unexpected storms,
of which no previous indications had ap
peared.
One of the disturbances, the bureau
said today, iB over Lake Superior, "beat
ing it" down from the far Canadian
northwest and bringing snow and i>old
weather and all sorts of unpleasantness.
The other suddenly appeared last night
over western Texas, traveling toward
the northeast and accompanied by heavy
rains and some more strong "breezes."
May Seem Like Robust Winds. j
The breezes may seem like pretty
robust winds, but wind has been abol
ished by the weather bureau, so that*
unless the atmospheric disturbances at
tain a velocity of thirty-five miles an
hour or thereabouts, they are officially
"breezes."
These two storms, the weather bureau
fears, may converge somewhere to the
west of this part of the country and
travel the rest of the way as one tine
young disturbance. If 'they do, the*
prospects for Easter may include every
thing from snow to rain?sleet, hall, driz
zle, plenty of "breeze" and about every
thing else that is disagreeable.
It is possible the storms may pass to
the north of the middle Atlantic re
gion. Then again, they may decide to
visit Washington and give capital resi
dents a final touch of winter, in which
case Connecticut avenue, F street and I
other favorite promenades are likely to
be deserted tomorrow, except for those
who simply have to be out.
Forecast Is Non-Committal.
About the best the bureau could offer
today in the way of a forecast for Eas
ter was: "There are indications that in
the southeastern states and west of
the Missouri river the weather will be j
fair and warm, while it may rain Sun
day and Monday throughout the cen- j
tral and northern states east of the i
Mississippi river."
L'ritil the weather experts take their
final look at the weather map tonight
those who have bought all kinds of
gorgeous raiment for use tomorrow
will have to get what, comfort they can
out of this decidedly non-committal
forecast.
Drug Club May Get New Quarters.
The Washington Drug Club at a meet
ing la3t night discussed the advisability
of obtaining larger quarters. The meet
ing was held in the rooms at the Mc
Lachlen building. The officers of the
club are A. V, Burdine. president; W.
W. Morgan, fist vice president; I-I. C.
Taft. secretary, and C. G. Van Emmons,
treasurer.
Hanged Himself in a Barn.
The dead body of John Raum, sixty -
one years old, who resided at 1214 E
street southeast, was found hanging in
a barn near Chapman's fishing shore, a
short distance from Glymont, Md.,
Thursday afternoon. Justice of the Peace!
Dement conducted an investigation and:
reached the conclusion that Raun* had j
committed suicide. The body of the sui
cide was brought to this city last night,
and funeral services were conducted at
his late home this afternoon.
OLDER CLERKS CENSURE
APPEAL AS DEGRADING
Object to $1 a Day Pension Plan
Suggested by Man Long in
United States Service.
Honu of the older clerks in the gov
ormiiHit service censure as a "degrad
ing. beggardly supplication" a letter to
The Hliir In which a man twenty-three
? ruin hi the civil service pleaded for
for the veteran employes of
the* liovnrilllient.
"Wo lire not yet paupers," said a
apokemnan for one group of these old
clerks today. "We are not whining for
charity, but claim we should he given
pensions an our just due for long and
faithful services. Army and navy officers I
and enlisted men are retired at a cer-j
tain age. length of service, or on account
of disabilities contracted in line of duty,
and are not termed paupers.
The man who wrote the appeal print
ed in The Star says he wishes some mem
ber of Congress to offer a bill allowing
veteran employes of the government SI
a day. We hope that no member of Con
gress will ever sully his manhood and
insult the old clerks by "offering such a
bill.
"There are many old clerks who have
from two to five persons dependent upon
them. How could they manage to keep
blood in circulation on the munificent
sum of $1 a day?
"Congress should allow the old. faith
ful. superannuated civil service employes
sufficient upon which to live decently.
We don't ask luxuries, we have not 'been
accustomed to them while !n the gov
ernment service."

! LIFE OF WILD ANIMALS
THEME OF NATURALIST
| Ernest Harold Baynes Speaks Before
i
the National Geographic
Society.
Brncst Harold Baynes, a naturalist,
founder of the American Bison Society
and organizer of the Bird nub of Meri
dian. N". H., lectured yesterday after
noon and last night before the members
I of the National Geographic Society at
the New Masonic Temple, on ' My Wild
Animal Guests." The Meridian Bird
Club was the pioneer in the efforts being
made toward conservation of the wild
hirds of America.
Mr. Baynes explained the language of
animal trails in the wild, telling bow
footprints in mud and snow and claw
and tooth marks on trees present, to the
naturalist Intelligible records of events
in the forest.
On o'?? occasion Mr. Rayncs tracked
and trv-u a raccoon. The branch on
which li? ;iml the atomai were perched
cracked and both hung head-downward.
The raccoon sav. d itself by using the
naturalist as a ladder, at the expense
of the ! a Iter's clothes. Mr. Baynes cap
tured four baby raccoons and raised
j them on the bottle. A collection of forty
slides showed the antics of a black bear
which had been shipped to the Baynes
home in New Hampshire. The lecturer,
with the aid of slides, explained the
development of the heads of the white*
tailed deer, showing the growth of the
antlers of the fawn to those of the
buck.
His most unusual pets* were a family
of skunks, the mother skunk becoming
so used to him that she would allow him
to pick up and carry her babies from her
[ burrow into his house.
