T'd hate to be a peeler, and
tread the pave of brick, the goat
for every squealer who thinks he
has a kick. -He tries to do his
duty, nine cases out of ten: the
burglar fierce and shooty, all
sorts of strong-arm men, the hobo
and the killer, the mad man \yith
a past, he'll chase from post to
pillar, and run them in at last.
His life he doesn't reckon when
tracking deadly foe; wherever
perils beckon the peeler has to go.
The cop must be a wizard, a
Sherlock in disguise, and know,
from A to Izzard. the wicked's
lures and lies; and he must be a
scrapper, to master hoodlums
rude; and yet he must be dapper
and well groomed as a dude. The
manners Chesterfifieldian he must
possess, of course, or we shall
take his shield in, and fire him
from the force. A Crichton he'll
resemble, in nothing he'll be lax,

lire Insurance Firm Files Action
Against H. J. Pach.
Suit at law was instituted yesterday by
the Independence Fire Insurance Se
curity Company, a corporation of Dela
ware, against H. J. Pach, to recover the
sum of $1,674 balance said to be due on
account of a subscription to the stock
of the plaintiff company.
In the declaration filed by Attorneys
Wilton J. Lambert and R. H. Yeatman
it is alleged that March 21, 1910, Mr.
Pach executed an agreement subscrib
ing to thirty shares of stock of the com
pany. at $60 per share, and agreed to
pay for the same at the rate of $5 per
share monthly. It is further alleged that
he has only paid the sum of $160 on ac
count thereof, and that the balance of
$1,360 remains unpaid, and as a result
of default in meeting the installments,
as they became due, a further charge,
aggregating $324, has become due.

Agriculture Department Colors One
Wing of Pests to Trace Them.
"Keep a sharp watch-out for army |
worm moths with one artificially col
ored wing," is the advice of the Depart
ment of Agriculture to those interested
in the destruction of the pest, which
l.as caused considerable damage to
crops and lawns this summer in the
north, east of the Mississippi river.
In furtherance of its campaign to
control the spread of army worm
moths the department's entomologists
are conducting a novel experiment to
obtain a better knowledge of their
Uabits. Where they are plentiful, one
wing of each moth is colored and then
liberated so as to determine whether
ihey fly directly west or north, and
l ow quickly and how far they will
-uread. Destruction of and report on
11 marked specimens is urged.

Victory Over the Bines in Artillery
Dnel?Gun Practice on
Special Dispatch to The Star.
gust 22.?The target practice of the 1st
Battery, Field Artillery. N. G. D. C., will
be completed today. Artillery Ridge, a
very rocky position, probably will be the
scene of operations, for the battery left
camp in that direction early this morn
Yesterday the Reds won a brilliant ar
tillery duel from the Blues. The District
battery was the Red force. Early in the
morning the Blues, while advancing along
the plank road, were checked by the Red
force along the Lehigh river. The Reds
were sent from Stroudsburg to reinforce
the Red commander, whose detachment
camped at Tobyhanna and resumed the
march yesterday morning.
Ordered to Advance.
At the time the march was resumed
orders were received from the Red' com
mander for the 1st Battery to advance in
the direction of Locust Ridge .and oppose
any aggressive move on the part of the
enemy against the left flank of the
command. Hostile troops were discover
ed along the lines of Hills No. 1 and No:
15, and the 1st Battery went into action
at once.
Worse conditions could not be encoun
tered in actual warfare than were met
and overcome by the batterymen on their
long march to their position. For many
miles * up steep rocky trails, the route
was so bad that the men could not even
ride on the guns. The wheels sunk in
mud up to their hubs, and the men
climbed along behind in the mud nearly
to their knees. On top of all this it rain
ed in torrents for a long time, but the
men were not daunted and served and
fired their guns with great accuracy. The
third and fourth sections vied with each
other for speed, accuracy and good all
round work.
House Lacks Quorum and Sits in
Idleness While Absentees
Are Bounded Up.
The House of Representatives found It
self lacking a quorum by forty-four
members yesterday afternoon, and
Speaker Clark issued writs and ordered
the sergeant-at-arms to arrest all the ab
sentees he could lay his hands on.
It was more than two hours before the
forty-four could be rounded up, and dur
ing that time the House sat still, doing
nothing. The base ball game is supposed
to have attracted a fair sprinkling of
lawmakers, but the rain broke up the
affair before a deputy sergeant-at-arms
could get into the grounds and round up
the absent ones.
During the two hours the actual at
tendance In the House dwindled down to
about fifty members. The presence of a
quorum was never a reality. The mem
bers would come Into the lobby, answer
"present" and rush away again. The
man who made up the two hundred and
eighteenth entry, completing the quorum,
was Representative Clancy of Schenec-,
tady, N. Y. His presence in the chamber;
lasted Just long enough to say "present" ,
and "good-bye." The House adjoui*ned;
a few minutes later.

Supreme Court Asked if Roadmaking
is Involuntary Servitude.
Whether making a man work on the
pnbUc roads Is imposing "involuntary
servitude" on him in violation of the
federal Constitution is the novel lseue
raised by Jake Butler of Columbia county,
Fls_, In a case just docketed in the Su
preme Court.
Butler was arrested for failure to com
ply with the provision of the Florida
statute requiring able-bodied citizens to
work on the public roads six days or pay
|3 Into the road funds. Although simi
lar statutes are in force In many states,
this Is the first time the constitutionality
of one of them has been brought to the
Supreme Court on the point in question.
Contest Begun Over the Estate of
Carolyn E. Porte.
Oloveania V. Clow today filed a
caveat In the Supreme Court of the
District of Columbia to the will and
codicil of Carolyn E. Porte, who died
In this city recently, leaving an estate
consisting chiefly of stocks and bonds
of approximately $20,000. Application
for probate of the will was made by
the American Security and Trust Com
pany, the executors named in the will.
The caveat alleges that at the time
of execution of the will Carolyn E.
Porte was not of disposing mind, and
also alleges that the property she un
dertook to dispose of by will was not
hers to dispose of, the caveat alleging
that Carolyn E. Porte had derived the
property from her mother, by whose
will a life estate only was devised to
Carrie E. Porte, being the same person
who signed her will as Carolyn E.
Porte, and that the remainder of the
estate, after Carolyn E. Porte died, was
devised by the mother's will to the
caveator, Gloveaina V. Clow, and
those she represents.
The caveat was filed by Charles E.
Breckons and Charles H. Merlllat, as
attorneys for the caveator.

Granny Fox Investigates.
In-vest-i-gates is a great, big word, but
its meaning is very simple. To in-vest-i
gate is to look into and try to learn all
about. That is what old Granny Fox
started to do after Reddy had told her
about the terrible fright he had had at
the hill where Prickly Porky lives. Red
dy had told her as well as he could about
the strange creature without head, tall or
legs that had rolled down the hill at him.
Granny had sniffed and said that she
didn't believe there was such a creature
or she would have seen or heard of it be
fore. She believed that some one had
played a trick on Reddy and she meant
to And out about It.
Now, old Granny Fox is very sly and
smart and clever, as you all know. Com
pared with her Reddy Fox is almost
stupid. He may be as sly and smart and
clever some day, but he has got a lot to
learn before then. Now, if it had been
Reddy who was going to in-vest-i-gate
he would have gone straight over to
Prickly Porky's hill and looked around
and asked sly questions, and everybody
whom he met would have known that
he was trying to find out something. But
old Granny Fox did nothing of the kind.
Oh, my, no! She went about hunting her
dinner Just as usual, and didn't appear to ,
be paying the least attention to what was j
going on about her. With her nose to
the ground she ran this way and ran that
way. as if hunting for a trail. She peered
into old hollow logs and looked under
little brush piles, and so, in course of
time, she came to the hill where Prickly
Porky lives.
Now, Reddy had told Granny Fox that
the terrible creature that had so fright
ened him had rolled down the hill at him
for he was at the bottom. Granny had
heard that the same thing had happened
to Peter Rabbit and to Unc' Billy Pos
j sum. So, instead of coming to the hill
along the hollow at the bottom, she came
to it from the other way. "If there is
anything there I'll be behind it instead of
in front of it," she thought shrewdly.
As she drew near where Prickly Porky
lives she kept eyes and ears wide open,
while all the time pretending to pay at
tention to nothing but the hunt for her
dinner. No one would ever have guessed
that she was thinking of anything else.
She ran this way all over the hill, but
nothing out of the usual did she see or
hear excepting one thing: she did lind
some queer marks down the hill as if
something might have rolled there. She
followed these down to the bottom, but
there they disappeared.
As she was trotting home along the
Lone Little Path through the Green For
est, she met Unc* Billy Possum. No, she
didn't exactly meet him because he saw
her before she saw him, and he promptly
climbed a tree.
"Ah suppose yo' all heard of the terrible
creature that scared Reddy almost out of
his wits early this mo'ning," said Unc'
Granny stopped and looked up.
"It doesn't take much to scare the
young and innocent, Mr. Possum," she
replied. "I don't believe all I hear. I've
Just been hunting all over the hill where
Prickly Porky lives, and I couldn't And
so much as a woodmouse for dinner. Do
you believe such a foolish tale, Mr.
Unc' Billy coughed behind one hand'.
"Yes. Mrs. Fox, Ah confess Ah done
have to believe it," he replied. "Yo* see.
Ah done see that thing mah own self,
and Ah Just naturally has to believe mah
own eyes."
"Huh! I'd like to see it! Maybe I'd
believe it then," snapped Granny Fox.
"The only time to see it is Just at sun
up," replied Unc* Billy. "Anybody that
comes along through that hollow at the
foot of Brer Porky's hill at sun-up is
likely never to forget it. Ah wouldn't do
it again. No, sah; once is enough fo'
your Unc' Billy."
"Huh!" snorted Granny, and trotted on.
Unc* Billy watched her out of sight and
grinned broadly.
"As sho* as Brer Sun gets up tomor

there," he chuckled. "Ah must get word

John B. Smallwood Tells How the j
European War Affects
Switzerland, although not Involved in !
the present European war, and hoping
not to be, could not wear a more mar
tial aspect were It one of the belliger
ents. according to John B. Smallwood of
the staff of The Evening Star. Mr.
Smallwood is on his way to this coun
try on the Italian liner Principe dl Udine,
and the last letter received from him was
written from Luzerne, August 4.
"You ought to consider this a war cor
respondent's letter," writes Mr. Small
wood, "for it is written in the midst of
war conditions^ Soldiers are everywhere?
In the possession of trains, parks, and,
sometimes, streets. Here at Luzerne sol
diers with fixed bayonets guard the sta
tion, and no one is allowed near the
trains without special permission. As I
came from Interlaken yesterday I no
ticed every bridge and every tunnel on
the line guarded by soldiers, and armed
men were placed at many of the stations
and railroad yards. And this is Switzer
land, which is not at war and which
does not expect to be.
Reports From the "Outside."
"Reports coming to Lucerne from
Germany and France' indicate that
train service is suspended. Friends who
came from Germany Sunday say that
the streets of the cities are crowded
at all hours, and the cheers and shouts
of patriotism turn night into day. And
every train has its quota of soldiers
going to a frontier post or reporting
to headquarters. I saw here in Lucerne
a schoolhouse and yard converted into
a barracks, and we hear the railroads
will be used by the government to
morrow entirely for the transportation
of troops.
"There are said to be 28,000 Ameri
cans in Europe, and 1.000 here in Lu
cerne. What they are going to do in
case of a general European war, with
no steamers sailing for the United
States, is more than one can guess.
Letters of credit, travelers' checks and
things of that kind get very little real
money now, most banks not cashing
them at all. Railroad trains are not j
running to any extent and it Is im
possible, therefore, to get to a sea
port even to get steamers that do sail.
School Teachers Marooned.
"There are many school teachers in the
crowds that storm banks and the Cook
offices In the vain hope of getting money
of some kind, and these teachers are
worried because of the likelihood of their
not getting home in time to resume their
work when the schools open. There are
thousands of schoolgirls and women here
with tickets or tours through Europe
paid for in advance and with little money
besides, and they cannot get to steamers
or to hotels where their stay is provided
for. and have no money, to speak of, to
stay where they are. What they are go
ing to do I do not know. I hope, before
you get this, that Uncle Sam's Depart
ment of State wiil have taken some ac
Awaiting Italy's Attitude.
"We are waiting for some word as to
Italy's attitude toward the war to de
termine whether or not to go there.
It is our hope soon to be provided for
and to be home or on the way home by
the time you get this letter. We are
keeping in touch with American con
suls in Switzerland and Italy at pres
ent, but, na'turallv, they are over
whelmed with requests for special con

Electrical Engineer Allen Would
Add to Washington's Great
White Way.
Pennsylvania avenu eccmtheast, from
the Capitol gorunds to Anacostla bridge,
will become one of Washington's great
white ways If the Commissioners ap
prove a schedule for lighting Improve
ments during the present fiscal year
prepared by Walter ?C. Allen, electrical
engineer of the District.
The schedule contemplates replacement
of arc lamps on this thoroughfare with
Incandescent electric lamps. It will cost
the District $2,500 more a year to main
tain the improved illumination.
Provision also is made for the installa
tion of Incandescent electric lamps in
place of inclosed arc lamps in the area
bounded by 1st and 7th streets and Penn
sylvania and New York avenues. This
improvement will involve an additional
annual maintenance cost of $1,400.
Mr. Allen's plans call for the expendi
ture of $7,400 in the maintenance of new
lights to be installed this year. Besides
the two improvements referred to, which
will Involve a combined cost of S3.900,
miscellaneous extensions in streets will
Increase the maintenance expense by
$3,000 and extensions in alleys by $500.
Work on extensions will be commenced
first, according to present plans. It Is not
likely that installation of the improved
lighting system of Pennsylvania avenue
will be commenced before January 1.
I Among the important extensions pro
vided for are Nichols avenue from the
Navy Yard bridge to Sheridan avenue,
and 16th street from Plney Branch bridge
to Madison street.
Extensions Elsewhere.
Other extensions recommended are Kas
tle Park, 50th street and Fitch place,
fifteen lamps; Deanwood, thirteen; Hill
brook and vicinity, twenty-two; Burr
ville, six; 21st and Rosedale streets, one;
7th street, Upshur to Webster, six; Levis,
one; Kentucky avenue southeast, five;
Rhode Island avenue east of South Da
kota avenue, three: Ingomar street, four;
25th street southeast, four; '226. and Chan
nlng streets, one; Ellicott street, one;
Colorado avenue, six; 15th street, four;
I Wisconsin avenue, three: 19th street,
| Thirty gas lamps are to be Installed in
; fourteen alleys. The amount appropriat
| ed by Congress for lighting purposes is
$3,000 less than the amount asked for
by the Commissioners, but by using an i
available balance the deficit has been re- j
duced to $2,000.
Chief Wagner will not be able to
attend the annual convention of the
International Association of Fire En
gineers this year, Congress having
vetoed the plan of sending bureau
chiefs to annual gatherings. Chiefs
from other cities in all sections of the
country will be in attendance, how
ever, and it is probable that some
friend will send Chief Wagner a copy
of the proceedings.
It Is planned to hold the convention
in New Orleans the latter part of
October, and the reported cases of
plague in that city alarmed some of
the chiefs. Dr. Rucker, assistant sur
geon of the public health service, dis
