Brim h nil wjiyi-rr! Capital Is Taking oh the WASHINGTON. "1 used to think that Washington was the quiet est big city In the world," sighed a "good old times" person, "and 1 loved It oh that ncoiint. Hut now I" The sigh nnd tho shnke of the head were eloquent. If memory serves, It was Mrs. Adams, wlfo of the president, who complained of Washington lis a wil derness. The streets, she said, were composed of mud that covered tho hubs of tho wheels of her carriage. Probably, with such a paving there was practically no noise of traffic likewise no traffic. "Tho city protects Its citizens from unnecessary noises," said Maj. Syl vester, "but as Washington each year takes on more and more tho attributes of a metropolis the number of neces sary noises Increases. No longer are dogs permitted to bark nor roosters to crow neither of these being neces sary concomitants of civic develop ment, liut the ringing of bells, tho blowing of whistles, nil the traffic warnings these are the necessary noises of busy peoplo and must go on. Only unnecessary disturbances can bo stopped I" Just then a niiin blustered Into tho outer office and demanded a copy of llio police regulations. "I want," ho said, "to find out what wo'vo Rot to submit to nnd what we haven't. A crowd of boys congregates ill vliu dlloy luck of our house. They M'll and howl there and piny ball, and tl'.ry cut up tho brooms that they find In tho alley entrances and uno them for bats.

Jones and oth er officers of tho army medical corps. During a recent Investigation meas urements of COO recruits were examin ed, and It wus found that tho per centage of strong men enlisted Is by far tho lowest at tho present day, only .13 per cent., ns against 67 per cent. In I87S. Tho men considered weak at tho present time nre 43 per cent, as against 10 per cent, in 187fi. At tention Is called to tho fact that tho percentage of foreign-born recruits has fallen from more than 00 per cent, to about nlno per cent. It Is suggest ed that many of the recruits obtained years ago were hardy German and Irish emigrants of stocky build, which may uccount for the great dif ference In tho percentage of strong men. Captain Jones says that many of the present recruits from tho country districts of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi aro found to be ill fed and undor weight, and that, tho uni versal custom of wnlvlug several pounds under tho minimum "gets many nn undrapud scarecrow Into tho .sorvlce." "We must take the figures cautious ly," snyB that ofllccr. "As I have said, VWMWWXWWMWWWWWWWM'VWWg They Knew President Wilson as Boy "Tommy" IN the throng of visitors at the executive offices the other day President Wilton found two frlonds of IiIb boyhood days, tho Misses Eliza beth M. nnd Kllen D. Dellniny or Wil mington, N. C. The two sisters, well advanced In ago, wero unhurcd Into lliii outer oIIIcph Just ns the president, according to his usual custom, began shaking hand with the friends of con gressmen. "There ho In now," said one of tho slsturs; "I know I could tell lilm, but , how old ho lias gotten. Wo used to vnll him Tommy. 1 am afruld I'll call lilm Unit yet." MMWAAMMMMKMAMAMMAMMA She Proves to Husband RKPItRSKNTATIVK Clayton of Ala bama dropped In on I'oHt master Goneinl Hurlnsoii tho other" day and found him Hwoltoring over hoiiio un prouounceiiblo postolllco addresses. Ilo camo to the rescuo by telling of some of his own experiences. "Ono of my good frinds nnd sup porters in all my races for congress," Judge Clayton averred, "had tho unique name of Poromus Erasmus Cadwalador Hiddlesporgor. One night," continued tho judge, "1 went to a country dunce not far from my homo and among the dancers wus a Mr, Plnkiioy Commillon, who hud for his fair partner Miss Mnhnly Maholy back." Mr. Hurlcson seemed to doubt the veracity of tho Alabama membor. "1 hut's not all," continued the Judge. "A young colored woman, smll- Attributes of a Metropolis throw the rinds 'out on the front street. I've complained to the police man on the bent and he's done noth ing. I just wont to find out what wo'vo got to submit tot" "What will you do about that?" the correspondent asked Maj. Sylvester. . "It must go through the courts," "But the policeman on that beat shouldn't ho have done something?" "We'll Investigate that. There are regulations forbidding ball playing and disorderly conduct on the city thoroughfares." Meanwhile the irate gentleman had followed a qulot-spoken Individual who had asked him to "come with mo and make a statement." Th'jn there Is the tragic story of the apartment house resident the cliff dweller of civilization. One of these, wooing a greatly desired morning nap, is awakened In the young hours of tho morning by the milkman. Tho milk man has been awnke these many hours, nnd has absorbed all that ex hilaration which, so wo are told, may bo extracted from the dawn. Having absorbed said exhilaration, the milk man proceeds to exude it again for the benefit of all whom It may concern' whether the beneficiaries desire It or not. Joyfully he scales the Are escape and clumps through the halls. With emphasis he deposits a full bottlo and collects an empty one from each door. With what breozlness does he retrace his steps, cheerfully clanking the bas ket of empty bottles, and, mayhap, whistling a little tune! Not a loud whistle, you know just a small, Irre pressible, exuberant whistle. Ur-r-r-rrl Maledictions upon hint ! Hut, at last, he Is gone. Then comes the Ice man, clatter, clatter, Into the alley. Certain horses must bo addressed In loud nnd man datory tones else thoy will not stand just right. A swarm of boys must de liver Ice In all directions, and call across intervening space for Instruc tions. Hut, at last, they, too, go. - ( - - M - - - M - B - 1)))njnJ1jt Among Recruits of Today I think thoro Is no doubt that we are getting a different typo of man In the servlco today from what we got years ago; ho may bo just as good and ho may have moro brains, but he does not seem to havo as much brawn. "Whether tho present-day recruit would last as well under the old con ditions of hard frontier sorvlco with sanitary conditions far Inferior to those of tho present tlmo Is hard to say, "Tho high porcentago of strong men In 1870 to 1870 may be duo to tho fact that the recruiting, at least In this part of tho country, was not very active then and tho army could pick its moil, accepting only tho hard iest and best. Finally, I believe fur ther Investigation ulong tho lines sug gested In this papor In other parts of tho country might tell us whether our standard Is really deteriorating or not." "You mustn't do that," Interrupt ed the other. "It's Mr. President nowi" "You know tho first tlmo I ever saw him," said Miss Ellen, remlnls cently, "ho was riding a bicycle." The two sisters told one of the secretaries how their brother, as fam ily physician for the Wilsons, was summoned to attend the mother of the future president. "Tommy camo over," said Miss El len, "to get mo to stay with his moth er. He stayed around and was a very helpful boy. I said at that tlmo Tom my would make a lino husband for somebody some day. How proud his father would bo It he could see him now." Just then tho presldont camo over, the two women Introduced themselves, and President Wilson said ho remem bored them quite well. Ho expressed his regret that Mrs, Wilson and the incmbors of his family woro not homo to greet thorn, nnd tho two sisters went forth beaming with satisfac tion.

Tho proud mother on being asked tho name of her offspring replied: " 'You know dat I loves ma husband.
