THE FARMER : FEBRUARY 5, 1915
QT SO EASY TO : GET INTO NAVY FIRST REAL PICTURE FROM EARTHQUAKE ZONE OF ITALY; VIEW IN RUINED TOWN Physical Examination Rigid ' and Certificate Is ,7 Required The United States army is em . JhaltlcaHy a. fighting machine. He who enlists in it expects to tie liable tot aervjce on the firing line some - where, "with a death-dealing weapon in . his hand.' or assigned to one of the- larger types of gun, perhaps a machine gun or a piece or heavy1 ar tillery, i. "With the exception . of the comparatively small, number of cooks, and other tradesmen and helpers, .the ordinary enlisted . men expect to be direct combatants. ; In the' United 1 States navy, .however, conditions are very different, so much so that only a small per cent, of the ordinary enlisted men, are enlisted for the purpose of having sea soldiers in case . of a sea battle. -A The -: modern war vessels are ! such huge creations of . machinery and " arrangements for housing j their men that they require a large' number of mechanical trades- - men, engineers and- professional men. It ;has come . to the , pass that Very many of the young" men of. New "Eng land who enlist at the local United States navy recruiting station are do ing, so-in order to learn one of , the -arious trades "they may pursue af ter being admitted to the service, and for the v money-saving? - inducements that the navy , department holds -out to them." Then, too they kiww that joining ;tha" -navy, while making them - liable ..to service in some great International war, is Ultely to take thm only into, inore or less strenu ous,; police service, in petty disturb s-nces, in the course of- which service, delightful visits among strange peo pled and; in strange lands, may be had without cost to themselves. :" All sorts of 'applicants, therefore, are-.1 attracted , to. the recruiting sta tions, and in this respect ith. Hart ford station is no exception.- - Many are- successful ; in -meeting the ra qulxements, though , . certain' physical proportions of height,, ' Weight - and chest measure must be pretty strictly adiiered to. The minimum height for ' acceptance of a man, 11 years old or over' is.' for ' instance,'., five feet, four inches. Such , an appli cant cannot be accepted . if he. weighs less than 128 pounds. No under weight is allowed in minors. IIow: Are Yonr Teeth: And Feet? - &ji ' objection which sends -. away many young felldws from the local recxuitiag1-. station - as at the others which, -Jhowever, - may be surmount edis an? Xmsati3factory' condition of, the - teeth. Every recruit must have at least, twenty sound teeth, Including four opposed ; molars and four op- . posed incissors; - Every - man must declare on-oath that he is not subject to - fits, and has no' disease concealed or 'Jikely to ; -be inherited. Even f lat-f ootedness, if at , all pronounced) or' such, as "to cause foot ache when standing, bars , one from the service. An 'attendant at the station pours a little -water oirthe "floor and ..requests the -applicant to step Into . it. The . latter1 is then' required tot walk 'across the room, . and from ; the marks left on the floor from' the wet bare feet the examining surgeon makes his de cision on this ' matter. Toe-nails are : not tremendously important in. ordi nary .'-life perhaps, but even these are not- overlooked here. . Any. abnormal-formation is carefully scrutiniz ed" and; closely inquired into. ' i - .JFaWmer'"' Verifies. ' 'Amusing "Incidents have not been -uncommon at the local station hav ing touo with .the requirement that age and, citizenship must be certified-in, all j cases.. . If' the applicant does not bring ..with . him ; a -. birth certificate from proper state, city, r or chuych, authorities, , he t must bring a blan;,; form i filled - out ; and signed jby . a .parent or .guardian ; -.f , The . sig nature of - the parent ' or : v guardian must be verified by . a postmaster or others United States -official, i mayor, justicei sheriff .chief of police-court officer,; " notary, .alderman, constable, marshal, pastor, or school superin- tendent, who must . write his official " titles after, his name. , . One day, , not . long ago, a forlorn looking . youngster . came into the lo cal station, foot-worn. and. dusty. He . had ; walked - over from , a ' country town, -jiear New- London. ' He , had the-required certificate in his posses sion,, and it was filled, out: But the verification had -pot been v made. tby one of the persons- already specified. In the place " for signature appeared ft mam ; as that of the .witness, i His title' was what made the verification worthless .. for - the . purpose. It was "farrmer." : - . -.- ... - Mas.' With Flexible Age. Another, .requirement which re-' minds those who have seen many applicants, .of . amusing or pathetic incidents, is that which 1 reads, "No iintoxicajed : person hall -. be enlisted in the naval service." Most of the boys . who appear at . the station at. the local federal build ing are.:, fairly . well set-up., and in . Tairly good constitutional 1 condition. But the exceptions are not few. Dur ing the present winter a number of men showing marks of alcohol have come ,fpr . examination, and have, of course, been -rejected. , One of these xmf ortunates had ' , a variable age. During a few minutes it-went from SO to ; 3 1 1 years, and then down to 2 9 years, according ; to - what seemed to be the. most. advantageous age ac cording to the payssng comment of one of the recruiti. officers ; who .was sounding, the-ma. t to get at the truth. Aa applicant of this kind never is accepted. . '. '! . , What Xavy Men . Jo. 'The largest number of recruits at the local station are accepted as ap prentice -; seamen, the next largest number for positions on shipboard as coal -passers: . If a man is stoutly 1uilt, and strong, and has a liking for mechanical . work, he i often pre fers to -go In' as coal passer rather , than- as 'seaman.- The opportunity for promotion eventually to rank of machinist's- mate ant to other po sitions; is good for the man who be Kins on one- of Uncle Sam's ships as a coal passer. . , '-f '.

No Need of Begging in Brook lyn Professionals Slake Big Money. J FoUowdng is an abstract from the lecture given at the Howayton Meth odist' Episcopal -church, January 22, by John IX' Godfrey, mendicancy offiKser of the i 'Brooklyn;: Bureau of Charities. Mr.s Godfrey has been mendicancy ..-officers in 'Brooklyn "for the past ' nine years and. has had many- interesting experiences- -r'"'r.-" ": '"-'. . ": " ' ; ' There are many varied methods em ployed by mendicants, for we- must recognize the fact that they-are thor oughly, trained . in that line. Begging has toeen, reduced to an art. j Mr. Godfrey has compiled the fol lowing; dictionary of ' beggars, all of which, he- has found in his work. Xeggmen. Clever crooks who pre tend to sell little articles like shoe strings' and buttons, ibut really are in vestigating conditions with a view to future robberies., ; . . Flappers. A "flopper" -of the.- first rank Is : usually prosperous, for , his specialty ia a good pne and is success ful with a large , number of women that frequent the; shopping districts, A flopper l is : a : man who crouches, seemingly, helpless, on the edge of the sidewalk in, - a - district where women congregate, i - He is pitiable because he is unable to J stand ..through .some mis fortune ' or" accident. He "flops" 'be fore theses crowds, and if the author. ities do hot disturb, him, makes money at it, perhaps ?10 a day. Throws-outs. ; The beggars who have the peculiar control ; over the muscles of their hands that enables them ' to "trow-out, that hand, keeping some of fthe fingers back. To the victim , it seems as if the hand was 'hopelessly maimed. ; . "-.'" 1 - i Fit-throwers." The "fl(t-thrower" so called 'is a grade above the "epi leptic? for. the - reason that he can "throw" - a : variety of "fits" varying his acting very artistically and putting in touches at times that ought to make him valuable on the prof essional stage. The- "thrower"' keeps an eye on his audience, .and does whatever he thinks will catch them best and pull the most money-out of their pockets. Crust-throwers.' . The crust-thrower Js one. of the .greatest artists in the begging world.! His scheme is dramat ic. His ."make-up"' is that of a man In the last extremities of misfortune. He is. ragged, dirty, hollow-eyed and shambles hopelessly, along, the street, with a peculiar walk that is 'very ef fective : His cleverness lies -chiefly in picking, the 'wbman, or: -possibly the man it 1 is in. most cases the woman though-to spring his game upon. . A good churst-thrower's discrimination and discernment would make him a man who could -command high pay in the world of honest business. "When he sees the woman he selects as his dupe coming he quickly throws Into the gutter, t with -a dextrous movement that does not identify him with the throw a dirty crust , of bread. If he can throw it into the. mud so much the better. The next instant he has leaped" for it and ravenously knaws it, placing himself ; where "the woman cannot help see him. His victim sel dom fails to" be "shocked at the scene and gives money to the man who Is brought to such straits. -, Paralytics. This man explains the trick. The counterfeiting is very clev erly done. Sometimes it takes a doc tor to detect the fraud. . One Arm in Sling., Simply a varia tion, and a profitable one, of several o f these games. ; The ibeggar pretends to have an injured arm. Consumptives. . The . consumptive game is a profitable one. There is little difficulty about arousing sym pathy and friendly interest if a man or ' woman is well made up for the trick." Generally a pathetic story of a suffering helpless family is -part of the flow of broken words that is poured out when aid is asked. , ' Deaf and Dumb. Deaf and dumb beggars simply pretend to be unable to hear or speak It requires some tal ent , to , toe sufficiently imploring, but not as great a . degree of skill as in some other lines, of the field. Both Arms Off! A ibeggar that ex cites much consideration Is the miser able, man. who goes along the streets with apparently both arms off. It is one of the ibest fakes in the business, and those who follqw this line seem to toe really armless. 1 The , arms are ingeniously bound down to the ' sides under the clothing, and the deception is excellently done.? "-. ' , - ; , Begging Letter Writers. ' The men who send' through th mails letters by the score .pitifully imploring assist ance. Stories of misery- and distress are told In these, of a dying, child,, or one already dead ' who cannot be bur ied for, lack of fundsi-of dispossession the next day; of starvation. Some of these letters are written very cleverly, though many are ignorantly phrased and -badly put together. : ,A large per centage of them go to people of wealth and position, believedj by these beg bars. to be very .sympathetic. There are profits of at' least $2 or $3 a day In this -form of mendicancy, sometimes much, more. '. . : -- v , . Office Building Men. These arelvery clever mendicants, nearly always well dressed, who go through the larger of fice, buildings anl tell hard luck sto riesi which are of ' course .fakes, and made up for the occasion.. The chief victims, curiously - enough, are espe cially able representative business men.. ' " ; Organization. ' Some " beggars, v with grSat success, claim to be managers of charity organizations of high, sound-, Ing, convincing names. This scheme requires men of rather remarkable ability. - ' ' -. ' ; " - . Collectors. These are very danger ous people, for the way they go about their game Is . very convincing. Very frequently they are women,. Some ;of the best people, have been deceived for months .by certain, of these individ uals. Sometimes' they manage to - get hold of some of the stationery of bona fide charities and .pretend to represent them. , Another way 'is to; invent the name of a charity that i3 not in exist ence, but whose title sounds . like one that actually is; - Frequently .: these people operate .for J months or even years before they are finally ; brought to . book. ! ,- i - a -' -' -r - - - '-, ,' . - Gypsies". : Tfhe gypsy is -hot 'as good as some of the others, for : the : reason that , the gypsy ; does not - get in : the thick of the crowd, where the real begging profits are. -'.-v - ' -, : '.'.:- Sailors. Men who pretend to bs sail ors . and dress the part,, who approach men and say that they are . Just ' off. their ships and want: money to' pur chase drinks. Th. .bluff seldom falls to work. ; .

A Real Mesh Builder For Thin People : V A New Discovery:"' '.-.,' Thin men and women that big, hearty, filling dinner ; you ate ; last night. What , became of all the fat producing nourishment it contained? Tout haven't " gained - in , weight one ounce. That food passed from your body like unburned coal through an open grate. The material was there, but your food doesn't work and stick, and the plain truth is you hardly get enough nourishment from, your meals to pay for the cost of cooking. This is true of thin folks the world over, Your nutritive organs, your functions of assimilation, are sadly out of geai and need reconstruction. Cut out the foolish foods and fun. ny sawdust diets. Omit the flesh cream rub-ons. Cut out everything but th meals you are eating now and eat with every one of those a single Sargol tablet. In two weeks note the differ ence. Five to eight good solid pounds of healthy, "stay there" fat should be the net result. Sargol charges your weak, stagnant blood with millons of fresh new red blood corpuscles: give& the blood the carrying power to deliver every ounce of fat-making material in your food to every part of your body. Sargol, too, mixes with your food and prepares it for th blood in easily as similated form. Thin people gain all the way from 10 to 25 pounds a month while taking Sargol, and the new fiesli stays put. Sargol tablets are a scien tific combination of six of the best flesh-producing elements known tu chemistry. They come 40 tablets to a package, are pleasant, harmless and inexpensive. All druggists in Bridge port and vicinity sell them subject to an absolute guarantee of weight in crease or money back. Adv.. Albany, Feb. 5. The Senate passed hurriedly yesterday the resolution sub mitting ; the woman suffrage proposal to the voters of the state next fall. Only one suffragist. Miss Alberta Hill of CNew York, . was in the gallery -when this action was taken. The resolution was adopted unanimously by the As sembly "Wednesday and . the . action yesterday . marked a; victory for the advocates ; of "Votes . for .- Women", which crowns efforts begun in. 1848. ' ' Passed by the , Xaegislature of 1913, the action yesterday means that ithe way is open for the submission of the question to' the electorate this fall, regardless- of what, the Constitutional Convention does. " - , The suffragists had ' obtained from Lieut. ; Gov. Schoeneck permission to occupy the , Senate Chamber on next Tuesday night for a jubilee in celebra tion of the passage of .the 'resolution, planned originally if or; that day. Then there went forth a story of the pro gram for the jubilee , which, caused President pro tern. . Brown to have the resolution put ' on ; "general orders," which ordinarily - would mean a vote next . week.. Senator Brown asserted that the Senate could not be .made a party to any celebration. " x esterday he moved a recess of the Senate and when newspaper men and spectators had left at once moved to reconvene. The resolution then was taken up and passed when' no one was looking. ,, r' -'Is,'.-: ' '';'-."" Miss Hill, who ' did excellent . lobby work' for the resolution, had. a confer ence" yesterday with ; William Barnes, fearful for the saf tey of the' measure. She 'returned jjust in time to observe the action of the Senate. She then called o the telephone: Mrs. Harriot Stanton Blatchr in New York, and told her what had happened.1 A little later she said: J '-, "The suffrage jubilee will take place Tuesday -just as planned, even though they slipped the resolution - through without" waiting" until we were Cut in force. ; Mrs. Blatch says the position of . Majority Xaoader Brown is unique, as ; floor leaders in, the past always have notified parties interested in bills when they might be taken up for passage.- ' .-'. :'".:-.:;:,;i:; , ;.'-'' i "The Senate thought it might be made fun of . if a lot . of : suffragists packed the galleries when . the .resolu tion weniVthrough, but in . rushing the resolution ,x through in . this" way, I think the.

Senator George A. Slater , of Westchester will preside....' It is expected that the Constitutional Convention, which will meet" In "April, will ; submit to the voters an amend ment providing for woman suffrage. Such ' a step would supersede yester day's action. .--. 7-; ': , : - When Miss Mary Garrett Hay,' chair man - of the Woman Suffrage party of the state, received the .telegram telling her : that - the suffrage resolution had passed - the Senate, local suffragists w(r so elated that they decided to have . an impjromTrtu. joy ride in cele bration. - Word was sent, to the five borough chairmen, Mrs. James Xees LaidlawTif Manhattan, Mrs. Edward Breier of Brooklyn, Mrs. J. B. Seeley of the Bronx, Mrs. William R. Willcox of Richmond, and Mrs. Alfred J. Eao of Queens, asking them : to send out automobile parties from "their head quarters who should anticipate the ar rival of the evening papers by telling the glad tidings to every one they met, and by holding five-minute meet ings on street corners. On account of lack of. time this "pro gram was modified later. i Mass. Senate for Suffrage. Boston, Feb. 6.
