T^Ptj PLAN FOR EXHIBIT OF INDUSTRIAL ART Private View Next Thursday to Mark Opening at the Na tional Museum. PROGRESS IN AMERICA TO BE SHOWN BY WARES Exhibition TJnder Joint Auspices of Museum and American Fed eration of Arts. ; INVITATION'S have been issued by the 1 regents of the Smithsonian Institu- | tion to it private view of an exhibi tion of American industrial art, which is to be held in the National Museum, 10th | and B streets, under the joint auspices of the museum and the American Fed eration of Arts, from May to September. This private view will be given on the evening or Thursday, May 13, and will take the form of a reception in honor of the delegates to the sixth annual con vention of the American Federation of Arts, which will be in session at that time in this city. The exhibition is to be installed on the main floor of the museum building, and promises to be one of the most interest ing and important ever held in this city. To It the leading manufacturers and makers throughout the country have con tributed, and although the representation is not complete, it will be found very com prehensive and representative. Status of Industrial Art. The object is to show the present status of industrial art in this country by dem onstrating to what extent American prod uct gives evidence of beauty in design and in what instances It may fall short in this particular; all. of course, with the purpose of manifesting possibilities and requirements in this direction. The theory* can be readily illustrated. A lump of clay is worth a penny ; the same clay made into a flower pot is worth 5 or 10 cents; made into a jar, finely shaped and fired, it may bo worth several dollars ; exquisitely formed arid colored it may l?e worth several thousand dollars. So it is in all product in which design is a ractor. Thousands of dollars are spent every year in foreign-made goods, which are only superior to our own manufacture in the matter of design and texture. Owing to the present Kuropean war some of those sources of supply have been shut off and our own inadequacy brought to atten tion. There is just one manufacturer in this country who produces i>orcelain which, both in texture and design, com pares with that made in England, France and Germany. On the other hand, however, much very j admirable work is now being done in j America, and in some instances materials made abroad are being made from Amer- } ican designs. Probably to the average I person the exhibition to be opened in the ! .National Museum next week will hold in reserve many surprises. Exhibit of Tapestries. The beautiful foyer of the museum will, for instance, be entirely given over to a display of Tapestries designed and j woven in this country Here will also j be shown some notable examples of j American-made furniture covered with j American-woven tapestry. This section ? of the exhibition has been assembled ar.d will be arranged by George X-eland Hunter, one of the leading experts and authorities in this country on tapestries, j Another interesting feature of this ! exhibition will be an entire room fur- ! nished as a typical American living j room of today. So far ns it is possible to do so this room will i:i itself be com- ! plete. There will be rugs on the floor, j curtains at the windows, i>b tures on | the walls, books in the bookcases, or- j raments, etc. In the <enter will be a j library table, 0:1 ? ither side couches, | in one corner will stand a grand piano! i st the opposite Hide a beautiful mantel ' ard open fireplace. The furniture in this room will all be contribute! by Grand Rapids makers, nnrj the arrange ment of the room will be under the charge of the editors of Good Furni ture, an extremely dignified and pur poseful trade Journal publish*,1 iri ?h;,t city. This will be a complete exhibit in itself and is meant to show the value "f art in design and in composition. Schemes of Decoration, No less Interesting will be the ex hibit sent by the Art in Trades Club of New York, an organization made up of ! those occupied in the art trades. This is a wall exhibit Occupying about 100 running feet, of space and showing How she ended ten years of skin-totrure OCT. 28, 1314 ;?"I had eczema on my face for ten years.

I The Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art will occupy one entire j room and show work not only of Its present pupils, but graduates. This ex jliil.it will be extremely varied and eml r.ently worth while, comprising pottery, metal work, wood carving, iron work, !?tc- , I To the Gorham company of New York I another room has been assigned, in which will be shown beautiful work in ! gold, silver and bronze and also in | glass. As a component part of this j exhibit will be cartoons and drawings ! showing processes of metal casting and the making of stained glass. There will be quite a comprehensive' | collection of silks, upholstery goods, printed and dyed fabrics. Two of the t lead in sr rug makers are sending splen did specimens of rues. There will be n tine assortment of linens, some of which have been woven abroad from American designs. The lace makers in Minnesota have sent an interesting consignment of hand-made laces, and from one of the leading manufacturers in Philadelphia has come a choice assortment of ma chine-made lace. Designs in Wall Paper. Then there are wall papers, some re productions of very old American de signs and some very recent patterns; linoleums and other wall coverings. The American potteries take high rank, and among those that will be represented in this exhibition are the Rnokwood, Enfield, Sophie Newcomb, Van Briggle, Fulper, Moravian and Pe wabic. The display of cut and engrave*! glass promises to be especially fine, and with this will be shown some rarely beautiful examples of colored glass from the Tiffany studios and from the atelier of Mrs. Sarah Ryel Comer. The ironvorkers will be well repre sented, and one extraordinary example of wood carving will be shown, equal ing in feeling and craftsmanship the work of the medieval carvers. Silverware, jewelry, needlework, and bookbinding will all be given place, and in each instance those who contrib ute are the foremost in their own arp ticular field. This is an exhibition which should prove of very wide and continuing in terest, and it is a satisfaction to know that it will be on view to the public here in the museum for a period of at least three months.

SUES FOR REISSUE OF STOCK LOST ON TITANIC Albert Xander Claims In Bill That W. R. & E. Co. Refuses Action Without Indemnity Bond. Albert Xander has instituted proceed ings In equity against the Washington Railway and Electric Company to com pel that company to reissue to him 200 shares of its capital stock of the par value of $20,000. In the bill filed by Attorneys Wilton J. Lambert and R. H. Yeatman it is al leged that wlnle Mr. Xander was at Heilbroun, Wurttemberg, Germany, he received a circular from the company addressed to the holders of the stock requesting him to turn in the certifi ! cates of stock held by him for the pur ! pose of having Indorsements made thereon changing the payment of divl I dends from semi-annual t:o quarterly payments. I The 200 shares of the capital stock i he inclosed, he says, in a registered let* ter and the letter was delivered on board the ocean liner Titanic and lost when that vessel sank in midocean. It is further claimed that the com pany refuses to reissue the stock, ex cept upon the giving of an indemnity bond in the penalty of $40,000, the cost of which would be $S00. The court is asked to compel the company to reissue the stock without requiring any indemnity bond.

HEALTH OFFICIALS GIVE 'FLY OUTS' District Department Issues Il lustrated Circular on the Disease Menace. FOR DISTRIBUTION AMONG PLAYGROUNDS CHILDREN Several Thousand Copies Printed by The Star to Aid in "War on Winged Insects. Don't permit flies In your house. Don't permit flies near your food. Don't permit flies near the sick. Don't purchase foodstuffs where flies are tolerated. Don't tolerate fly-breeding places in your neighborhood. This sums up the advice of health officials to Washingtonians who would do their part toward ridding the city of one of its greatest foes. The warning- is contained in an illus trated circular "Fly Don'ts," several thousand copies of which have been printed by The Star and will be dis tributed among the children of the capital's playgrounds. Dr. Arthur L?. Murray, formerly of the health department, who supervised The Star's first "swat the fly" cam paign, in 1911, has promised to take care of the juvenile feature of Wash ington's fight on the fly this spring. He personally will superintend the distribution of . The Star posters and probably will follow this up by giv ing lectures at the playgrounds on the importance of every one assisting in the work of ridding the city of its germ carriers The Star poster was carried into hundreds of homes last season and is believed to have been a big far-tor in influencing the general determination manifested by citizens in every quar ter to abolish the fly. Advice Given in Circular. The advice contained in the circular is as follows: Flies are bred in filth, live in filth and carry filth. Flies are the most dangerous insects known to man. Flies are the known distributers of many diseases, such as typhoid fever, tuberculosis, intestinal disorders, es pecially diarrhea and enteritis (summer complaint) of infants, as well as chol era. Flies visit the spittoon of the careless consumptive, and other discharges from the sick, the open garbage pa.il, the manure pile, the carcass of decaying animal, the obstructed sewer and the refuse heap, and then call at your home to crawl over the exposed food, swim in the milk, wade through the butter or gambol over the nursing infant's face or bottle, or they will visit the un screened grocery store, market, bakery or lunchroom. Flies carry the germs of disease and filth on the hairs of their bodies and legs, as well as on the fuzzy pads of their feet. These disease germs and particles of filth are ihe dangerous un seen messengers of illness and death that flies leave wherever they visit. Following a close study of a number of flies, it was found that the average fly carried more than 6,000,000 bacteria. WHAT TO DO TO CRT RIP "K FLIES. PREVENTIV K M KASt.* RES Flies do not normally travel my re than -00 to 300 feet_. from the.ir. ing place, therefore the elimination of breeding places in your neighborhood will greatly mitigate the fly nuisance. Flies breed by election in stable ma nure, but denied this they will select the next best medium available which offers the two factors ne<*#*s.sary for the hatching of their eg?3?heat and mois ture. Favorable breeding places: Manure bins or pits, open garbage pails, dead animals, decaying vegetable matter, fermenting refuse piles. Permit no breeding places near your premises. SfPPRESSTTE MEASrRES. Screen your homes. Screen all, foods, milk especially. Screen the- bed of the baby and those who are ill. Swat or otherwise destroy every fly that gains entrance into the house. A good fly poison may be made by using , one-half pint of milk, one-half pint of i water, two teaspoonfuls of formaldehyle and two teaspoonfuls of sugar. Small squares of bread saturated with this mixture should be placed in shallow dishes throughout the house and on the back porch. Keep out of reach of children and animals. Sticky fly pa pers can be used to advantage. To clear the rooms of flies use. carbolic acid, heating a shovel and pouring on twenty drops of the poison. The vapor will kill the flies. Fly traps well baited will capture many flies. Traps should be placed in stables, in yards and on porches, so as to capture the. flies before they enter the house. Flies in the home indicate a careless housekeeper. Remember?No dirt, no flies. If there Is a nuisance in the neigh borhood notify the health officer. TEST OF WEBB-KENYON LAW. Argument on Its Constitutionality Before TJ. S. Supreme Court. The first case involving the consti tutionality and construction of the Webb-Kenyon liquor law, by which Congress sought to divest liquor in tended for use in violation of state laws of its Interstate character was up for argument yesterday before the Su preme Court. The case concerned the carrying of liquor by express into dry counties in Kentucky. Similar transportation of liquor into West Virginia was con cerned in another case, which had been advanced to be heard with the Kentucky case. Cases of a like nature have arisen in Oregon, Delaware, Mis sissippi, Tennessee, Iowa, Texas, Ala bama, Kansas, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. i | HEARD AND SEEN HERE AND THERE. By Earl Godwin. There are two touching stories to be related this week. And having read them, one will see that the use of the word 'touching" is correct in a colloquial sense The first one has to do with Ray Pullman, major and superintendent of J? lice. It has been locked up in the secret hen'-t of Tom Shipp of Indiana and Wash ington, and, I understand, has never be fore seen the light of print. Tom does considerable traveling on sleepers between here and New "i ork. and one time found himself in the Pennsyl vania station, with a ticket to Washing ton and no money to buy a berth. I a - urally he was in a. tight situation, but a grand thought came to him when he re membered that Ray Pullman had said he expected to be aboard that same train at that time. , ? ? Tom explained his dilemma to the Pull man conductor, who gave him an unprom ising look, but allowed him to go aboard the train in an effort to find Ray. Once aboard, Tom began to use all his powers of description on the various Pullman norters to find his own lost Pullman^ One porter seemed to he impressed with the name Pullman, evidently under the mis app-ehension that Tom was speaking of the man who invented lower berths, but he was not able to recollect any 'such person on his car. __i,, Tom kept saving: that if he could onl> find his friend he could get $- from him. i.y.j Began <n all power* of de . .rriptlon on the various Pullman j porter*. land having traversed the long train from 1 tender to caboose, he found a porter who j seemed to think he had put Pullman to j -But Ah doesn't like to wake him up, | sah." said the porter with great hesi ! tatiori. , , T-n I "Vou show me 'he berth ana I 11 I take the responsibility of waking him ! U So thev wf-nt to lower nine and Tom peeped in. By the dim light re?P~ nized the classic features of Brother Pullman. and Tom could scarcely re frain from whooping with joy. "That's him." said Tom in perfect Indiana accents, and taking Pullman bv the shoulder woke him roughly. "Whazza matter?" grunted Pullman. 44We gotta Washin'on yet?" "No. No." said Shipp in a reassuring voice. "This i.- Tom Shipp and 1 want to borrow $2. Stuck on the train with out a cent. Can't get a berth." "All ri'," grunted Pullman, and he fished for his money under his pillow and peeled olT %'2 and f-11 back abso lutely dead to the world again. \nd then in th?- morning Pullman awoke, arose, went to the dressing room and completed his toilet. Tom Shipp had preceded him and had gone into another car with a man he had picked up en route while shaving, and Pullman debarked from the train at the I'nion station without having seen Shipp. In the station, however, the two men faced each other and shook hands. Tom had it on his lips to thank Ttay for the $2 when Ray opened up with this remarkable statement: "Say Tom. 1 had the darndest dream about'vou last night. 1 dreamed you came to me on the train, woke me up and got $2 from me and then went awav again. Isn't It funny about dreams? I bet you passed my berth anil the close association, mind over matter, and all that sort of thing, flashed that dream through my brain." "Kay that is a funny dream." acqui esced Tom Shipp. "The idea of my be ing able to find a man sleeping in a "a'iiri funnier yet," said Ray; "I found I had two dollars less this morning than I thought I had. Dreams cer tainly are queer." >t 1 "Yes, that sort of dream is queer. And the two friends departed, Tom chuckling. For a long tibe Shipp let Pull man think it was really a dream and then finallv one day be sent Pullman a check for S2 and told him that the "stuff that dreams are made of" is gooil legal tender out in Indiana. * * * * And the other touchim; story is the tale of James T.. Wright, one of our tiest known young newspaper men. He tells it himself, and It ought to he a warning to every one not to be too generous. Perhaps after Maj. Ray Pull man reads this and the other story he will whisper something in the ear of his plain clothes men. Anyhow, here Ik* ,11m Wright's own tale in his own ^Aftcr leaving the Press Cluh I jour neyed up 15th street toward my domi cile abode or habitation, the Burling ton' Between H and I streets a very fashionably attired man, perhaps fifty or fifty-five years of age. came up by rr.T side and said: "I beg your pardon, sir, but arc you any judge of human nature?" Naturally, I looked the man over carefully. He was dressed In a cut away coat, fancy vest, neatly creased trousers and a black derby hat. He looked like a prosperous business man. I replied that I didn't know much about human nature. "Well," he resumed, "I am In a most humiliating position. I came here to day to meet the executor of my moth er's estate, and upon arriving here I find that he has gone to New York. I regret to admit It. but I am forced to say that I have not even the money to oav for a nights lodging. "What will it take to carry you through?" I asked. "Oh a dollar or two," was the reply. I handed him $2 and he asked for my name and address, saying he would aend It to me In the next day or two. "I will never he caught in this situation again," he said as he left. I continued up 15th street. At the corner of I street stood a man, who said: "Say, did that man strike you Xaturally. I looked the man over care fully. for a loan?" And when I said that he had lie said: "Well, he's an impostor. I loaned him a dollar night before last. You'll never get your money back." "Yes, I will," I told him and I turned bark. My "friend* had turned on H street toward 11th. He rut across the street and back again, but I caught up to him, saying. "See here. 1 11 have to re call tlint loan I just made you." "Well," he said, reaching in his pock et, "I suppose you have your reason?" i "You bf-t I have," I answered, "and I'll produre him in a minute unless you | produce the two beans." He handed over the $2 neatly folded and started down the street. Wild Bob Burman was a four-flusher in the role of speed kin^ romparrd to that fellow in his journey toward the park. * * * * When Wrisley Brown, special assist ant to the Attorney General, who con ducted the prosecution of the famous A rehbald impeachment case, finds the law suits of the government lacking in thrills and human interest he may branch into an absolutely new field. The proposition has been made to him, and it is a unique one. This is the au thentic history of the offer: Wrisley Brown returned to Washing ton some time ago, after having con victed a number of high financiers who had wrecked the Atlantic National Bank of Providence, R. I. The case was an exceedingly difficult one, in- ! volving the organization of the Mexi "I l?a* e a eat ease for you." ran beef trust, vast operations on the London Stock Exchange and puzzling international complications. Brown re reived many letters congratulating him upon the successful termination of the trial, which lasted more than two months. One of the envelopes was addressed to him in a childish hand. Opening it, he glanced at the signature, and found it to be from a little friend of his, a seven-year-old youngster, who is an especial favorite of the government's attorney. Then, with amazement, he read this refreshing and original com m unication: "Hear Risz?Since I heard you Won your Providence case I have a cat case for you. Our fruit man, who lives in Stoneham Mass, ran over my Poor Lit tle Cat and broke her leg. She died aft erward. Now you please Sue him forme for a hundred dollars you can have as much as you can get out of him anyway you ran have $50. I expect to have a lot of trouble. If you win this case I will give you all my trade, because I guess you know a thing or to. Please do this case at once. With love, KARL." "Risz" has written his little friend that, after mature deliberation, he re grets he cannot take the case, because of the pressure of official obligations. And just now he is on a still hunt for a Maltese cat of sufficient appearance and pretensions to take, fittingly, the place left vacant by the deceased. DECREASES ARE SHOWN. Less Lead and Zinc Concentrates Sold in 1914, Compared With 1913. Decreases in the value of lead and zinc concentrates sold In the central states were shown in 1914, compared with the previous year, according to a bulletin Just issued by the geological survey. The total value of lead concen trates of all classes sold by producers in the central states in 1914 was $11, 790,121, compared with $12,201,913 in 1913. The value of all zinc concen trates sold decreased from $13,521,743 in 1913 to $11,863,420 in 1914. Approximately 14,465,500 tons of ore were mined and treated to obtain lead and zinc concentrates valued at $23, 659,541. The average value obtained by the operators of lead and zinc mines in the central states per ton of crude ore mined and milled was $1.64. From all lead, zinc and copper mines in the central states in 1914 about 23, 735,000 tons of ore were mined and treated?about 1,700,000 tons more than the ore sold or treated in 1^13.
