RATE ADJUSTMENT ON WATER SOUGHT Commissioners Receive Peitition From Roberts on Behalf of Hillcrest Group. The Commissioners had before them today a petition by People's Counsel William A. Roberts that water rates charged to residents of the Hill crest section be adjusted to elimi nate "discrimination." Acting for the Hillcrest Citizens' Association, Roberts asserted that residents of the section were being charged at a higher rate for water usage than other consumers who do not have water meters. Residents there whose homes were built in the past two years are charged on a property front-foot basis and in some instances are paying two or three times as much as the mini mum charge of $8.75 a year assessed against other users not having meters, he said. Water Department officials say meters have not been installed because of Insufficiency of appropria tions for meter Installations. CITY NEWS IN BRIEF. TODAY.

I IN REMINISCENT VEIN. THE "Old Roman" of the House, former Representative Edgar Howard of Nebraska—he of the silvery locks, Napoleon cloak. black square-topped hot—was in reminiscent mood apropos of hi£ golden wedding anni versary. Democrats must have been looked upon as horned vipers in Iowa 50 years ago. for Representative Howard recalled that on his way to ClRrlnda, Iowa, to claim his bride he overheard two of her girl friends chaltinK about the approaching nuptials. One of them said: "And do you know Elizabeth Burtch is going to marry a Demo crat?" Mr. Howard recalls that when he hesitatingly asked the bride how much she thought he should give the preacher she suggested "$50." He had only « small fraction of the amount, but with characteristic re sourcefulness he slipped a $10 bill into an envelope with a note that j this be "credited on account." Mis. Howard's brother was a rail road official and supplied a private j car on the branch line train. A J number of guests rode over with them to Omaha. But there was a charge of 50 cents for each passenger crossing the Missouri River Bridge. The young husband felt it incumbent upon him to pay this bridge toll as « matter of courtesy—but lie didn't have the money. In desperation he furtively purloined the bride's purse and in it found sufficient to meet the emergency. Ever after that day he was a pro nounced advocate of public owner ! ship. SPARROW APARTMENTS. AKE a second look the next time you pass that bronze tablet on the Avenue side of the Willard Hotel. See that piece of white string Sparrow hospitality! Their latch string is always out. In the narrow brick ledge behind the tablet is what certainly is one of the most exclusive sparrow apartments in Washington. Or take a look at the ornamental iron-wrought lamp which swings from the corner of the house on Euclid and Sixteenth streets. The bottom of the ;amp terminates in a clawlike design. Snug within its prongs is another ele gant, tailor-made nest of a sparrow family. Speaking of nests ... A recent popular magazine carried the story and picture of a side-tracked baggage car. In some freight yard the car had been quiet for a time. A robin and his mate took advantage and built a nest on the rods. Eggs were laid. So, too, came orders for the car's removal Hundreds of miles away,-some brake man's eye caught the nest. He made his discovery known. Officials side tracked the car again to let the robins raise their family. TALE OF TWO HATS. I'D LIKE a pound of butter," the old gentleman said, laying his brown hat on the grocery counter and feeling for his wallet. The jangle ol the cash register was almost drowned I out by the mumble of the many people I in the store. Then, when the old gentlemar reached for his hat—it was gone. Ir j its place was another, newer, and ; oddly enough, of the same size. He took it after explaining to the clerk who he was in case the owner of the "new" hat returned for it. It was three months later. In s neighborhood cafe about a mile froir the grocery the old gentleman fin ished his dinner and prepared tc leave. He reached for "his" hat on the cafe hat-rack. It was gone. In its place was the old brown hai taken from him by mistake in the grocery. # * * * hanging from the lower left side? * # * * f SUNNY SIDE UP! BRECKENRIDGE LONG.

"The chef aboard the George Wash ington," says Mr. Long, who was then an Assistant Secretary of State, "was anxious to please the royal palate. So the American chef cooked every dish he could think of—from pheasant U> terrapin. Breakfast, dinner and supper, for six days, brought out a cufcine never before known on an American liner. ••Finally, King Alfred grew weary of it all.
