By Earl Godwin, Back from tho New Hampshire woods comes Max Kaufmann with a story of a colored man who is imbued with the feeling: that discretion is the better part of valor, even if it be the valor of ignor ance. The colored person in this tale is to be called John. The woods of New Hampshire are big and filled with wonder. If wildcats and lions and rasing tigers do not prowl among the pines it is not because the woods are not deep enough or thick enough or inviting enough. As far as John s imagination was concerned there was a ring-tailed terror behind even huge tree trunk within vision. John did not like the wild woods. He much pre ferred to he In Washington safely at the wheel of that motor car which he runs and calls by a loving pet name. He did not fancy being taken up to New Hamp I shire among those frightful wild beasts. ; Po when John went abroad at night he :sa* objects In his mind s eye which would I make a menagerie manager rich could he but capture them and exhibit them for real money. Huge bears rose before John as he shuffled through the ferns, and the .natives of that section of the country, ' learning that John was wood-shy and I wildcat-shy. managed to people his terri fied soul with terrors greater than those Am fast u his legn would carry him. of the pestilence which stalketh bv noon T-r.La?d, ?uil an:ow wh,ch ?-veth hy nteht. , told him that those particular woods nau in them a beast known as the sloop I o? ?8e 13 ten feet ion? and fitted .at the far end with an arrangement like a cobblestone. The sloop cat. they told ! J?hn. hangs by l,iS forefeet to a bough of I a tree and bangs on the head with the cobblestone the first passing colored man. John thought that it was time to mob ilize his forces He sent to Washington ior a .08 caliber revolver, and wore it on his person as he walked about, some times daring to get as far as a hundred jards from the cottage. A New Hamp shire wit thought it would be a scream ing joke to cover himself with a sleigh robe, bearskin or buffalo, and lay in wait for John, who would be supposed to believe he saw a bear and be very much scared. It all worked out to perfection, al though if that mountain wit beneath the bearskin robe had known that John wa? lugging a perfectly good .38 about with him the scare would probably have ? premeated the robe with mar velous precision. As it actually hap pened, John espied the live thing and set it down for a man-eating grizzly. He got away from that place as fast as his legs would carry him, and told his boss about it. He also mentioned that he had a gun on at the time: "A gun," gasped the man he was talk ing to, "why didn't you shoot that bear? * Well, you see." stuttered John, "you see th-th-that bear didn't have no head, an*?an' I figured that if he?if he was alive an' doin' well wifout a head, now? what harm do you suppose a bullet could do him?" * # * * ?2?

The only human "helngs In this country who are not speaking or the war are those who haven't vet heard of the war. And speaking of the Buropean war There was a beautiful garden party at | the country place of Duke Barchester Towers at Polonsby-on-Trent. It was a typical Bnglish garden party (for de scription see anything Frances Hodg son Burnett writes). It had all her char acters there, including the bishop and the vicar and the young Kngllsh officers who have names of smart distinction, and the various princesses and duchess es and ladles and helressts and poverty stricken nobility as well as landed lords. There were also present a large array of naval officers and military men. I-very one from admiral, down to mid shipmen. ' I There were enough of these present to | defend ail tiie ports of Kngland Of [ course, it being England and a week end. every one, from admirals down to midshipmen, deserted the ships and re paired to the country. I An admiral was speaking of the Ger mans: "A most treacherous race." he said as he placed his cup carefully upon his saucer, "do you know. I always feel that they will attack us some time when we least expect it. Do you know, I believe It would be just like them to attack us some week end when we are all away in the country?" * -V * While on the general subject ot Ger mans, a pleasing little story of bvgone days in the kaiser's empire Is going the rounds here. Some months ago Representative Bar tholdt of St. Louis, who is the official German-American of the United States was sent abroad with a replica of the Tfce war lord Unshed a rood, hearty Hohtuollera l?nyi?. Von Steuben statue in Jackson Square, Havlnir the replica, the .United States government decided to present it to the German people in mem ory or the great patriot of revolutionary j days who was the drillmaster of the continentals. Dr. Bartholdt landed in Hamburg with the replica, but on his way to Berlin, stopped off at Hanover to call on an old friend who was consul there. "I am awfully glad to see. you. doctor." said the consul. "What brings you here?" The doctor confessed. "A her. then you have made an awful mistake," said the consul. "When you come to a country on an official mission you should go direct to the head of the government first, present your credentials and when they are accepted then you may go to other places in the land. "Fare thee well," quoth the doctor, and immediately picked up his grip and his replica and went on to Berlin. He was promptly and graciously received by the kaiser and they chatted a while about Steuben and other things. "When did you reach Berlin?" asked Wilhelm II and then: "Did you visit any pther German city before you cams here?" Haltingly, Dr. Bartlioldt replied that he had. "Which one?" asked the kaiser. The St. Louis representative wrestled with the truth for just a moment and then replied: "Cincinnati." Whereat the war lord laughed a good, hearty Hohenzollern laugh and said no more about it. * * * * * Arthur Krock has been telling a story about the anchor of the ill-starred and famous battleship Maine. The ill luck which followed the ship has been talked of the world over, and Is a topic of con ( versatlon in the navy to this day. The I Spanish nation, which lost considerable of a grip on the world as a result of the Maine, have had the same idea, but ac cording to Arthur Krock the latest per son to join the hard luck chorus on ac count of the Maine is Representative John Rothermel of Reading. Pa Mr. Rothermel was foolish enough to try to do something nice for his home town. Sometimes this feeling moves a man to present his home people with a cannon, which they don't want. In Mr. Rothermel's case he secured one of the i three anchors of the Maine and, with i fanfare of trumpets and much blowing, j presented the anchor to his home city of Reading. I Among the simple Dutch folk of the district this presentation made a great I hit. They were inclined to forgive much j trimming which their congressman had I from time to time indulged in while i sporting with great questions of state. ! His opponent, already in the field, reeled back in terror from the stroke and tried to think up some way to prove that the congressman had stolen the anchor. He decided at last, and with wisdom, that the people of Reading would esteem It all the more, and then he happened to glance at the anchor. He started back, the opponent did, with a melo dramatic start. For upon it were to be traced the figures: "1S46." "I have the caitiff now," cried the rival. In pure Pennsylvania Dutch, and he rush ed out upon the hustings. "Fellow-democrats," he called out In thunder tones, "John Rothermel an im postor is. He tells you this anchor from | He happened to glance at the anchor. the battleship Maine came. If it from the battleship Maine came, which was in 1895 built and In 1896 sank, then I ask you how does It come to be 1846 dated?" And he showed the number. Loud roars arose from the crowd. It demanded to know what Rothermel had to say about that anchor. He protested that the an chor was from the Maine. He gave verbal authorities, but somehow he must have failed to carry conviction or his record must have been against him, for the proud German voters of the Reading dis trict hung him out on a limb to dry and I nominated his rival In his place. Now here comes the real tragedy: A few days after the primaries the as | sistant secretary of the navy. Franklin i D. Roosevelt, came to Reading to "un veil" the anchor. He had heard upon ar ' rival of the controversy which had raged | about the relic and made reference to it in his speech. "Mr. Rothermel told you the truth," said Mr. Roosevelt. "This is a bona fide anchor from the battleship Maine which was sunk in Havana harbor in February, 1898. The Maine had three anchors, and this is certainly one of them." Everybody looked at the new congres sional nominee. He felt it was up to him, so he called out: "If that's the Maine's anchor, how comes it that the date 1846 is upon it written already?" Mr. Roosevelt smiled a sweet toothless smile that distinguished him from his fierce bull moose cousin. "Everything, every anchor, in the navy has a number," he replied, "and this one's ; is one-eight-four-six." BRUNT OF WEEK'S TIE-UP FALLS UPON DRY GOODS j Other Lines of Imports Show Less Proportionate Decrease at New York Port. NEW VORK, August 22.?Imports of , general merchandise here for the week ending August 15 were valued at $14, 258,228, compared with $12,413,783 the week before and $15,639,140 two weeks j before. Included in these imports are $271,039 worth of precious stones and ! jewelry. Imports of dry goods for con sumption totaled $1,389,257, silk entries being appraised at $470,726. The week before these entries were valued at $2, 456,490. and at $2,275,777 in the corre sponding week last year. Significant as reflecting the paralysis of shipping following the outbreak of the European war is the fact that the dry goods entries here the week of Au gust 15 were less by $1,107,233 than in the preceding week. The brunt of the tie-up appears for the week to have fallen on dry goods, as imports in other lines show no such proportionate decrease. TRAFFIC TO EUROPE SOON. Freight Managers Hope for Early Resumption of Grain Shipments. NEW YORK, August 22.?Conference held yesterday between the foreign freight traffic managers of the railroad trunk lines entering this city and freight directors of north Atlantic steamship lines developed that the is suance of through bills of lading from' the grain fields to European points soon would be resumed. Grain carriers refused to give other than domestic bills of lading about three weeks ago, when it became evi dent that the war would bring a tem porary stoppage of exports. The rail road and shipping representatives will meet again next week, and if regular commerce has by that time become assured there will be no more difficulty about billing shipments through to Europe. P.V.DEGM LOSES HIS FIGHT FOR LIFE Former Post Office Depart ment Official and Newspaper Man Dies After Long illness. P. V. DE GRAW. Peter Vorhees De Graw, former fourth assistant postmaster general and for many years a prominent news paper man, died at his home, 210 Mary land avenue northeast, this morning shortly after 2 o'clock. Death was due to a complication of diseases, from which he had suffered for several months. He was unconscious at the end, having suffered a hemorrhage early in the evening. Funeral Services Monday. Funeral services will be held at the family residence, 210 Maryland avenue northeast. Monday, at 2:30 o'clock, in terment to be in Hock Creek cemetery. The active pallbearers will be members j of the. Gridiron Club as follows: E. C. Snyder, J. Harry Cunningham, Richard V. Oulahan, E. M. Hood, J. Henry Small, Ernest G. Walker, John S. Shriver and Arthur W. Dunn. The honorary pallbearers will be H. Conquest Clarke. Dr. W. P. C. Hazen, Robert J. Wynne, W. A. Brown, Louis Garthe, F. A. Richardson. G. B. Van Nest. Jules Guthridge and Robert Cal lahan, sr The executive committee of the Grid iron Club at#a meeting held at noon to day called a special meeting of the club for 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, at the New Willard Hotel, to take action upon the death of Mr. De Graw. Was Born in February, 1853. Peter Voorhees De Graw was born at Princeton, N. J., February 1, 1853, and received his education in the public schools of that city. After leaving school Mr. De Graw studied telegraphy and was a railroad telegrapher at South Amboy, N. J., when he was chosen as one of the original "Big Eight" to man the New York As sociated Press' first leased wire for press matter exclusively. This was in 1874, and a year later he was made a member ?of the Associated Press staff in Wash ington. a position he held until 1882. Mr. De Graw then went with the West ern Associated Press, being its Wash ington manager from 1882 to 1885. He was then made southern manager of the United States, and a short time later was appointed assistant general manager of the United Press, with headquarters in Washington, a position he held until 1897. After a few years in newspaper and mercantile work Mr. De Graw was ap pointed fourth assistant postmaster gen eral, the appointment being under the then Postmaster General, George B. Cor telyou. This appointment was made St. Patrick's day, March 17, 1905. Built Up Rural Free Delivery. The work of the fourth assistant post master general has particularly to do with the rural free delivery, and Mr.' De Graw's work in building up and extending this department of the post office's busi ness was monumental. From a nucleus of only a few thousand rural routes when he took up the duties of his office, Mr. De Graw extended the rural free delivery service until it now embraces 41,000 routes, radiating from almost as many thousands of villages, towns and cities all over the United States, and employing about 50,000 persons, directly, in the han dling of rural mail and its delivery to farmers living along the routes. Mr. De Graw was one of the founders of the Gridiron Club. The famous club was organized as the result of a dinner given January 11. 1885, by Judge B. F. Crowell, sixth auditor of the Treasury, at Chamber in's. Mr. De Graw, at that time general southern manager of the United Press, proposed that a dining club composed of Washington newspaper men and correspondents be organized, with the view of promoting and maintaining an esprit de corps among the men writing on national affairs. The proposition met with unanimous favor, and a committee was named to formulate a plan of organization. First Called Terrapin Club. The clulj which was formed was first known as the Terrapin Club, the. or ganization being, made at a meeting held January 24, 1885; but within two j weeks, on motion of John M. Carson, then correspondent of the Philadelphia | Ledger, and one of the members of the organization committee, the name was changed to tlio Gridiron Club of Wash ington, D. C. Mr. De Graw had charge of the work of putting the new parcel post system Into operation?a work which required executive ability of the highest type and a knowledge of men and business affairs such as would fit a man for the most responsible position in commercial life. He took an active and generous in terest In everything relating to the welfare of Washington and was prom inent in promoting the speedway and other public enterprises. His last pub lic appearance was at the Washing ton's birthday reception given by Theo- ! dore W. Noyes. He leaves his wife and one son, E. B. I De Graw. New York Bank Statefnent.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS. CHICAGO. CHICAGO, August 22.?The recent ec centricities of wheat carried the mar ket higher at the opening: today and for the moment buyers and sellers were pennies apart. Opening prices were from 4 up for May to 1%, for December and in a fow moments an other cent was superimposed, but part of this latter gain was relinquished on ensuing trades. The advance was due to the shyness of sellers rather than to any particular demand. As has been the case since the war began, price gyrations have been larger due to the varying guesses as to the European situation, and th?* .fairly general impression, in the face of influential utterances to the con trary, that war means higher graiu prices, regardless of the difficulties of shipment and financing. Liverpool was higher; the English crop was reported above the average and the potato crop abundant. An over sea authority estimated that Germany and Austria-Hungary would need 2H*, i 0*0.000 bushels of wheat, corn, barley land oats from abroad, while English import requirements were placed at 448.000,000 bushels. The volume of trade in corn was restricted by defection of traders to the wheat and oats pits, but prices were sympathetically strong. The mar ket opened unchanged to net higher and quickly added % to 4 the bulge. Oats opened 3* to 4 higher on reports of seaboard acccptances and early gained an additional 4. May touched 514.
