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.

Another, .requirement which re-'
minds those who have seen many
applicants, .of . amusing or pathetic
incidents, is that which 1 reads, "No

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

.was sounding, the-ma. t to get at the

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. ; . ' ''. - t . -
Soldiers. The . same game played by
men In soldier -uniform. , ; , '
Store to Store,, s The beggars that
make, their specialty going from store
to store asking alms., They are a dis
tinct class. -; ' ' r
Panhandlers. The lowest ' type of
beggar; the kind of little intelligence;
the man satisfied with almost nothing.
He is the man who has three cents in
his dirty .hand and whines '- for two
more for "carfare." ' , -

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. Senate had made fun of it
self." ' 'J 1 ...... .. . v.' ':-.
.The . speakers at "the jubilee will be
Mrs. Blatch Mrs. Beatrice Forbes
Robertson Hale, and Mrs. Inez Milhol
land Boissevaln. 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. Only three dissent
ing votes were cast in the Senate yes
terday when a bill providing for a con
stitutional amendment extending the
franchise to women -was passed. The
measure will go to the House and if
adopted there, will be submitted to the
voters at the November election.
The Maryland , Casualty Co. has re
insured the sprinkler leakage business
of the United, States Casualty, taking
th business over on Feb. 1. The Ma
ryland ' has a very large volume of
sprinkler business and is equipped to
handle it economically and efficiently.
It was announced yesterday that,
while arrangements were completed
some time ago by the Russian govern
ment to establish a $26,000,000 credit
with J. P. Morgan & Co., against
which purchases of . supplies In this
country would be made, the Russian
government had so far not drawn
agains this credit. The Russian gov
eminent has made large purchases,
however, of supslies here.
