NEW YORK LETTER
New York, March 14. Because
Mrs. Szatners and her son- don't
speak, the Big Sisters' Association of
Queens County is going to find a
home for the son, Francis, aged 13.
The funny part of it is that Francis
and 'his -mother are not on bad terms
at all. They would like to converse,
but they can't. Mrs. Szatners is a
Lithuanian. Her first husband, Fran
cis' father, died eleven years ago,
and the woman put her baby in a
children's home in Brooklyn. There
the boy grew up. He-learned, to speak
and write English, and' forgot the
Lithuanian tongue entirely.
His mother married another Lithu
anian. Neither of them speaks any
English, and when' they took the boy
home" with them, four months ago,
they found themselves unable to" talk
with them except by making signs.
The mother brought Francis into" the
children's court in Brooklyn, to ask
the judge what to do about it, and
the Big Sisters got her to agree to
let them provide a home" for the boy
among English-speaking people.
A Broadway express pulled along
side the uptown subway platform at
Fourteenth street. The hour was 6
p. m. and the Waiting mob charged
oa every door of the train.
A little old woman in a black dress
came tearing down a flight pf steps
from the. street. 'She made straight

15 or 20 men were .trying to jani
themselves. In her hand was a stout
umbrella, and with it she belabored
upon thdir backs the men on the out-
skirts of this mob. As they jumped
aside, the little old. woman advanced,
continuing to thump those in her
A final handful at the door barred
her passage, and she got ;hrougti
them by the simple process of grab
bing them by their .coat collars and
thrusting them aside. Once inside
the train, she glared through steel-,
rimmed spectacles, at another'woman
who' had-watched her tumultuous en
trance. "Have to do this every night!"
she exclaimed. "Men in this town
ain't got no manners!"
' Rev. Chas. A. Eaton has a nice
old lady in his .congregation who has

who have been married more than

someone asked her how she would
act when she met'thein both, she re
