There couldn't have been a more popu

strange nomads who camp on the hill
every little while. Mr Morris has been
secretary up there for several years,
and Is known and Is liked in proportion
to the knowing.
Joe Morris Has Won Before.
When that horse was named for him,
everybody said he would be a winner.
And Joe Morris (horse) has been a win

his name from being ashes in the mouth

the favorite at Latonia yesterday, but

Complaint Is Made
Of District Stable
The presence of fifty horses, some of
which are said to be diseased. In the
temporary new District stables, at Four
teenth street and Pennsylvania avenue
southeast. Is causing Indignation against
the Commissioners among the citizens
of Southeast Washington.
Capt. W. M. Potter, chairman of the
executive committee of the Southeast
Washington Citizens' Association,
today said the horses were put
In the "makshlft stables" early
yesterday morning before Jus
tice Etafford, of the District
Supreme Court, granted a temporary In
junction against the Commissioners, en
joining them from establishing stables
at the new site.
"These horses are said to be sick and
already show what a menace such
stables. If made permanent, will be to
the health of our citizens," said Capt.
Potter this morning. He declares the
stables are without drainage facilities.
"Monday I will petition the Commis
sioners to immediately remove the
horses, following the spirit of Justice
Stafford's Injunction order," said Cap
tain Potter today.
Xext Wednesday evening the South
east Washington Citizens' Association
will meet to continue its campaign
against location of the District stables
at the proposed new site by the Com
missioners. The association has already
passed resolutions of protest against re
moval of the stables to that section of
the city.
Andrew Wilson, attorney for the pro
testing citizens, is confident of gaining
a permanent injunction against the
Commissioners in the case, and forcing
the use of appropriations fort new
stables at the present old site, near
Tenth ard O streets northwest.

British Troops March
Again at Bunker Hill
BOSTON, Mass., June 17. The steadv
tread of British troops was heard ti
the vicinity of Bunker Hill today as on
that memorable day 136 years ago, when
the first Important conflict of the Amer
ican Revolution took place. Today, hew
ever, the Americans were not fortified
on the crest of the hill ready to "fire
when you see the whites of their eyes."
The Americans were on hand this time
in vastly superior numbers, and thev
gave the British soldiers a warm recep
tion, for the latter were the St. John
Fuslleers, of St. John. N. B., who had
come down on a fraternal visit to help
in the celebration of Massachusetts'
Fourth of July. The celebration cen
tered in Charlestown, where the British
troops marched in parade with the Mas
sachusetts: militia and sailors from the
.American warships at the navy yard.

District Boundary Stone at
Jones' Point Is Under
Following a careful study of old
records, old newspapers, and old tra
ditions. Fred E. Woodward, who has
located other District boundary
stones, has now found the lost cor
ner stone, the 'first landmark" on
Jones' Point This is tho stone at the
southernmost corner of the District
as ceded to thi- United Mates by the
5-tate- of Man land and Virginia, and
Is located on the Virginia aide of the
river In the half of the District re
ceded to the State in later time.
This stone. It has alwas been known.
was located at Jones' Point, on the
shore of Hunting Creek, below Alexr-.-
drla. This location was known In a
eneral way not only from Fresident
Washington's directions to tne survey
ors, but from old newspaper accounts,
which Mr Woodward has found includ
ing one in the "Massachusetts Spy,"
written from Alexandria. Friday. June
15, 1791. the date upon which the stone
was placed. The article describes the
ceremonies incident to the setting of
the stone.
Mr. Woodward's researches would have
been unnecessary if in 1S55 the Govern
ment had not built a lighthouse upon
the point within fifteen feet of the
stone and followed this up In 1S61 with
a seawall which extended over and up
on the top of the stone, hiding It from
Hidden Many Years.
"There for more than fifty years,"
says Mr. Woodward, "no one has seen
this earliest landmark, an object wor
thy our highest esteem and admiration.
"This stone, still landing, though hid
den from view, being under the gate
way. In front of the south door of the
Mr Woodward learned from the En
gineer Corps of the War Department
that "a report In that office made by
mv. Sinclair In 18S4 on the trlangulatlon
of the District, mentions a mark made
on the face of the wall when the stone
was discovered. In 1S61, undoubtedly for
the express purpose or locating tne
stone, should this ever become neces
sary." ,
rnls mark now nas oeen iouna d
Mr. Woodward, and there is no reason-
aole ground for doubting that the stone
lies immediately beneatn tne mam.
From the data at nana, says .nr.
Woodward, "It Is almost certain that
the stone can be located about two feet
and six Inches below the top of the sea
wall and not more than seven to twelve
inches back from the face of wall."
Excavation Is Urged.
Mr Woodward would like to see the
Government authorize an excavation
which shall exhibit to the sight this
venerable and noteworthy relic of an
earlier day
It will take, he says, but a small
amount of monev, and not much more
would be necessary to protect the stone.
"Such protection," he argues "might be
secured by making a cement or mason
ry niche In the present wall, protecting
It In front by Iron bars or gratings, or
the stone Itself might be raised so as
to bring It up to the level of the top of
the wall."
It Is the disco'ery in Engineer Corps
records by Mr Woodward of the note
made by Mr. Sinclair In 1884 that gives
the real clue to the location of the stone.
Washington Actor "Busts"
A Wild Maryland Colt
Herbert W. Parker. 1G33 Rhode Island
avenue northwest, who has been acting
with stock companies In Washington
this summer, can go Into the ramifica
tions and refinements of "barnstorm
ing." He proved it by doing a little "horse
pley" out on the RIverdalo stock farm
of R. W. 'Lone yesterdav pfternoon. He
took a colt out of the barn, threw him
down, saddled and bridled him, and
then "broke" him. Hitherto nobody had
been able to do anything with the colt.
Afterward, while the horse was eating
out of Mr Parker's hand, the actor said
it was not a great thins for him to do.
Mr. Parker used to "bust" bronchos in,

fit of half fares on the street railways

ence In eery way to Induce Congress

What probably are the two happiest
youngsters In the city of Washington,
and as well, the two happiest families
are to b found in Tenth street north
west. Byron Dailey, aged seven, and
William Keister. elgnt years old, are the
boys, and their happlnes and that or
their parents, lies In the fact that they
have returned home after many ad
ventures In the wide, wide and strange
old world, into which the lads sallied
It all began when Bryon's father took
the two little lads to a baseball game
at Seventh and Park road yesterday
afternoon. After the game he gave
each of them several pennies for "hokey
pokey,'1 and told them to hurry home
before it became dark. It was not until
early this morning, however, that the
two boys again saw S536 and 3545 Tenth
street, where they live, and it was
through the kindness of a big police
man that they did get home.
Just what happened after they were
left consuming ice cream cones near
the ball park and up to the time that
their anxious parents again saw them Is
a mystery for neither little lad could
exactly tell. They "Just wandered
around," they said today. About 3
o'clock this morning the Tenth precinct
police were notified to search for them,
and shortly afterward they were found
curled upon a door stoop.

Swollen glands about the neck, weak eyes, running sores and
abscesses, pale, waxy complexions and frail, poorly developed sys

some cases the blood is so filled with the scrofulous germs that from
birth the disease shows its presence. In other cases it is held in
cjieck during young, vigorous life, but when the system begins to
weaken, especially after a spell of sickness, the disease will often
manifest itself in some form. 5. S.S. is Nature's perfect cure for
