T. Wetatar.) <?i M<s>ftk?]r's Day aim Eifiiit@iriraaftn?inial Hdliday EXT Sunday will be Mother's day. The idea of the institution of this festival, for such It has grown to be, originated with a Phila delpaia woman, Miss Anna Jarvis. There is now a Mother's Day Inter national Association which was or ganized to promote and protect the celebration of Mother's day, and it works in the United States and foreign countries. Any son or daughter of any country is eligible to membership in the association. The object of the day as officially announced is "an all-na tions' and simultaneous observance for the well being and honor of the home."' The slogan is: "In honor of the best mother who ever lived?the mother of your heart." The time of the ob servance is the second Sunday in May by the churches of all creeds. The day is observed by schools on Friday pre ceding the second Sunday in May and by business and other organizations on Saturday preceding that Sunday. The House of Representatives and the Senate passed a resolution on May 10, 1913, commending the observation of Mother's day by Congress, the Presi dent and his cabinet and other heads of government departments. Repre sentative Heflin introduced in the House, at the request of the founder of Mother's day, a Joint resolution that the President of the United States should designate, through an annual proclamation, the second Sunday in May as Mother's day and that he "re quest the display of the American flag on all government buildings, homes and other suitable places." President Wilson, on May 9 of last year, issued the first national Mother's day proclamation, asking that the next day, Sunday, May 10, be observed as Mother's day in accordance with the joint resolution of Congress, and it was given out in the news at the time of that proclamation that the United States was the first nation to give such a national patriotic honor and tribute to its homes as the fountainhead of the ? state and to its sons and daughters "for their work for the home, moral uplift and religion" for the good of the gov ernment and humanity. * * * It has been the custom of the gov ernors of most of the states for several years to issue a Mother's day procla mation urging the churches, schools, business organizations, homes and citi zens generally to enter into the fine spirit of the day. In an official an nouncement as to the proper observ ance of the day, it has been written that it should be commemorated "through some distinct act of kindness, visit, letter, gift or tribute showing re membrance of the mother and father to whom grateful affection is due" and it has also been written that Mother's day is equally Father's day and is de signed to deepen and perpetuate' all family ties. The outward symbol of Mother's day is a white carnation, though the de mand has been so great upon that flower on previous Mother's day's that other carnations have been worn in token of the memories of the day. Two years ago a charter was granted by the state of Delaware to Charlotte K. Kirkbride. B. Carrie Sternberg and others for the celebration under the laws of that state of "Father's day" on the frst Sunday in June of each year, and Representative J. Hampton Moore of Pennsylvania introduced in the House October 2. 1913. a bill which provided that the first Sunday in June in each and every year thereafter should be designated as Father's day as an expression of sentiment corre sponding to that of Mother's day, and that the rose, irrespective of color, shall be regarded as the emblem." "Mother rhymes" run through the literature of the Knglish-spea.king as well as that of all other peoples of the world. "Mother rhymes" are much more numerous than rhymes relating to the father. When the poets twang their lyre in the name of father they most often become flippant. Following are a few famous mother rhymes and mother lines: I had not so much of man In me, Rut all my mother ? ?atn?- into mine eyes Ami gave me up to teart. ?Shakespeare.

La mar tine. KUBEER PAVING FOl STREETS; AQUIKT15R city is the desire of the people and governments of many cities, and the achievement in this direction has been remarkable. Within the memory of living men there was little inclination to restrain urban noise or noise making. Uproar was considered as inevitably incidental to ' or characteristic of a city. A city measured its prosperity, its business and its claims to civic distinction in terms of noise. Cities were proud of their uproar, of their smoke and of their traffic congestion. Streets were paved with cobble or rough stone blocks and a little later with granite blocks, and the wheels of drays, trucks, omnibuses, carts and wagons were steel-tired. Hawkers and barkers raved without let or hindrance, bells were jangled and horns and whistles were blown. Now comes a proposition of rubber streets?a proposition that streets i shall be paved with rubber to further reduce the sound of traffic. At the fourth international rubber and allied industries exhibition at London the executive head of that exposition said that he looked forward to the day when the streets of London would be paved with rubber and "the brain fag consequent upon the incessant noise of main thoroughfares will be mini mized to the advantage of hundreds of i thousands of people." One of the exhibits at the exposition was a writing room in which the walls were covered with rubber that looked 1 like wall paper, the pictures were in j rubber frames, the carpet was of rub- j ber and the tables, chairs, blotters, i paperweights, letter racks, inkstands j and penholders were of rubber. There | were also rubber window curtains hung on rubber curtain poles. The first thing to come into the mind of a practical man in connection with the question of rubber street paving is the matter of expense. The rubber tire has put a drain upon the natural rubber forests which has immensely raised the price of rubber, but this sit uation is being met, at least in part, by the rubber plantation?the cultiva tion of rubber trees. Forms of rubber have been found in and extracted from varieties of plant life other than rub i her trees, ;ind this industry is en larging. But above all the production of natural rubber looms the possibility of th? production of artificial or syn thetic rubber. It has come in a labora- I tory sense and it may arrive in a commercial sense. * & ;!: Tt was in 1S28 that a German chemist ?Wohler?proved that inert -chemicals could be combined in such a way as to produce an organic compound. That discovery marked the birth of synthetic chemistry. Because of this epoch marking: discovery various natural products have been supplanted, or practically so, by synthetic products. Artificial alizarin has supplanted the madder plant for dye, and natural in digo is being pressed to the wall by synthetic indigo. Synthetic vanilla llavorlng is in the race with the prod uct of the vanilla bean. Synthetic camphor is being produced from tur pentine, and nitrate fertilizers and many other useful things are being produced by chemical processes. Great brains are busied with the thought of synthetic rubber, and in a German, lab oratory a set of automobile tires* was created out of compounds that never had any relation to a rubber tree. It is one of the curious things of his tory that rubber paving has been ex perimented with and found successful, though figures of cost, wear and depre ciation which would lend interest to the experiment have not been pre served. Charles Dickens, in "House hold Words," written more than sixty years ago, said: "The enormous thor oughfares through the streets of Lon don have given rise to a vast number ol invention^ to combine hardness and elasticity to form an easy and effective foothold for horses and passengers." He mentions among those experiments one with vulcanized ribber, and says that- "the only relic left of this con trivance is the courtyard of the admi ralty." It was in the mid-forties that the British government, or the admiralty department of that government, laid down rubber paving in ita courtyard. Perhaps today there are Americans who recall that in "the early seventies an approach to St. Pancreas station, Lon don, was paved with rubber. The rub ber covering the floors of corridors in hotels and the aisles of halls and the aters was an old device for promoting quiet. The world may enter upon a rubber age, as it has upon a stone age, a bronze age and a steel age. Rubber is a comparatively new contribution to the world's known useful things. Six | teenth century explorers of the new continent and its islands wrote with wonder that the natives of South America "played games with elastic balls made from the exudation of cer tain trees." The strange substance be gan to engage the attention of Euro pean chemists, principally in France and in England, in the eighteenth cen tury, and it has been written that Dr. Priestly was the first to discover its^ use as an eraser. It was in 1701 that Samuel Peal took out a patent for waterproofing cloth by brushing hot rubber over it, and in 1813 John Clark made a contribution to the world's ' knowledge of rubber by dissolving it ! in turpentine and using the solution in the manufacture of air beds. Charles I Mackintosh of Glasgow in 1S20. with a solution of rubber in naphtha, produced that waterproof material which bears j his name today. Idtfle SprieJ /& Bedtime By THORKTOX W. BIRGESS. (Copyright. 1915, by I. G. Lloyd.) Sammy Jay Is Very Polite to Peter Rabbit. Peter Rabbit saw Sammy Jay headed for the dear Old Briar Patch and he i knew by the looks of him that he had | something on his mind. When Sammy 1 got there he was very nice to Peter. | "Good morning. Peter. f hope you are feeling very well ? today. Fine weather, isn't it?" Sammy spoke in his most polite manner. Peter looked at Sammy sharply. "He wants something. T know him. He never would be so polite ns all this if there wasn't something lie wants of me," he thought. Aloud he said. "It certainly Is fine weather. 1 am feeling fine, thank you. 1 hope you are feeling the same.'' . "Oh, I'm so as to be up and around."' replied Sammy. "By. the way, I hear you had a meeting the other night." "You mean the meeting of the Quad dies," replied Peter. "Yes. we had a meeting. Too bad. Sammy, you are not a quadruped and then you might join the Quaddiep." "Even if I were 1 don't know as T would want to join," returned Sammy, trying to speak carelessly. "I don't quite see why I shouldn't join as it is." "GOOD MORNING, PETER. I HOPE YOU FEEL WELL." "Because you haven't got four feet." retorted Peter. "A Quaddy is a little quadruped." "That is no reason at all," replied Sammy. "I've got two feet and two wings and the wings just take the place of. feet. From what I've heard 1 supposed the Quaddies were just a band of little forest and meadow people, and T don't see why you should shut out anybody Just because it happens that Old Mother Nature hasn't given them four feet. Take Mrs. Grouse, for in stance. She's a good friend of yours, but, of course, she can't be a Quaddy if she wants to be. I don't think much of that kind of a society." Peter sat up and stared at Sammy Jay thoughtfully. "1 hadn't thought of that," said he. "Of course I should like to have Mrs. Grouse to be a Quaddy if she wants to be. She is very nice, a splendid neighbor." "And there are Tommy Tit the Chick adee, and Winsome Bluebird, and Wel come Robin and a lot more. But, of course, they can't be Quaddies because they haven't four feet." continued Sammy. Peter thoughtfully scratched his long left car with his long right hind foot. Right away he thought of a lot of friends who have wings whom he would like to have join the Quaddy band. He hadn't thought of them be fore. "I am much obliged to you, Sammy Jay," said he. "T think I shall have to see the other Quaddies and have a change made. Our band really ought to Include those you have mentioned. In fact, T think it ought to include any of the little meadow and forest people who want to Join and can." "What do you mean by can?" asked Sammy. "Why. only those who have some good In them can be Quaddies," replied Peter. "That is why you can't be a Quaddy." he added, with a sparkle of mischief in his eyes. Sammy opened his mouth to make an angry reply, but instead he said. 'Tm sorry you think so badly of me as all that. Peter. I know I do a lot of mean things. Somehow I just can't seem to help it. Did you ever happen to think that there may be some good in the worst of us if only you look for it? T hope you'll think better of me some day, not because I want to join the Quaddies. but because T don't like to have any one think I am wholly bad. I must be going along now. By the way. watch out for Reddy Fox. He j says that any Quaddy who comes with in reach of him is a goner. Look out j that you are not that one." With this off flew Sammy Jay. Peter watched him out of sight. "That was very nice of Sammy to give me that warning," thought Peter. "I won der" he paused and looked very thoughtful. "Perhaps I'm mistaken about Sammy after all. I wonder If he would like to be a Quaddy." THE PUBLIC LIBRARY SELECTED LIST OF BOOKS RE CENTLY ADDED.

Passengers Pay No Attention to Warnings That Liners May Be Torpedoed. A lii v\ iun?\. .?ia> number of transatlantic travelers to j leave New York in a single day this j spring had booked passage'on si* big] liners leaving port today. | Apparently the notice, published in New York papers today over the sig nature of the imperial German em bassy. reminding passengers that ves sels flying the flags of the allies are liable to destruction in the war zone around the British Isles had no effect on the traveling public. It was esti mated that more than 3,000 persons had reserved sailings today. I When the Lusitania sailed she had , |aboard J.310 passengers. A number of! the passengers received telegrams at 'the pier, signed by names unknown to them and presumed to be fictitious, ad vising them not to sail, as the liner 'was to be torpedoed by submarines. Among the persons who received such la telegram was Alfred C. \a.nderbilt. He destroyed the message without com jment. I The advertisement read: | "Travelers intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded that a state of war exists between Germany and her allies and Great Britain and her allies: that the zone of war in cludes the waters adjacent to the Brit I ish Isles; that, in accordance with formal notices given by the imperial government, vessels flying the flag of Great Britain or any other of her al lies. are liable to destruction in those waters, and that travelers sailing in the war zone on ships of Great Britain or her allies do so at their own risk "IMPERIAL/ GERMAN EMBASSY. "Washington, D. C.' Explanation at the Embassy. In an official notice published by the German embassy in every important city of the United States today. Ameri cans were given renewed warning that they travel on ships flying the flags of Germany's enemies at their own risk. Count von Bernstorff. the German ambassador, was away today, but offi cials at the embassy said so far as they knew today's published notice was intended merely as a warning to neutral travelers of their danger and did not indicate new naval operations. Secretary Bryan said it would not be proper for him to comment on the ad vertisement. The State Department, however, has refused to issue pass ports to Americans who intend to visit Europe for pleasure or recreation alone, but issues them to Americans who say they are compelled to make the voyage on business.

Arthur Ludge. ten years old. fell into the water, and Howard Cummings. eleven years old. and Carl Feddon. ten years old. went into the water m rescue him. They were soon numbed with the cold and could not get their companion out of the water. It looked as though all three would be drowned. Arthur Lusby, aided by De Sales Quaid. nine years old. lay flat on the ice and by great efforts succeeded in pulling the three boys from the cold water. The watchman on the bridge across the Eastern branch and pedes trians. looking down on the boys, be lieved they would all be drowned. A call for a police patrol wagon was sent in.
