mind, .heart and thought of all boys.
"Is1 the Sunday School Reaching tho
Older B6y7" was the subject of jo. talk
by P. H. Brlstow. superintendent fC
the Calvary Baptist Sunday School.
Mr. Brlstow said tho Sunday, schools da
not reach as many cf the oldor boya
its -Is possible, and that great - effort
should be put forth to make the Sun
day school so attractive as to be a.
magnet to those who do not come.

It Is In evidence In the present Inves

Mr. Kalbfus that It did not look well
for a member of the board to bo specu

tion It Is suggested by District officials
that the assessors of tho District have

The Commissioners aro said to have
considered offering a recommendation
to Congress on the subject that will

In the regulation of the number of
saloons In the District, the policy of
the board Is asserted to have been to
keep the inumber about the same each
)ear and to prevent. If possible, any
increase In the total. Tho Commission
ers, it 1b declared, will ask Congress to
put some statutory limitation on tho
number of saloons, not only in the Dis
trict, but also In Its subdivisions.
Surplus of saloons In certain sections
of the city is one of the evils most
bitterly complained of In tho present
After Petition Signers.
Another question concerns the qualifi
cations of saloon petition signers. The
Commissioners have hinted that they
disapprove the alleged practice of cut
ting up a piece of property for which
a saloon license Is asked Into a dozen
or more parts, for which deeds are said
to be recorded, only for legal signatures
to the petition. hTe Excise Boaid, ac
cording to testimony, recently has been
throwing out such signatures.
A. E. Snoemaker, an Anti-Saloon
League attorney, who testified regard
ing this alleged deeding practice, has
been asked by the Commissioners to
bring them the copy of a law of some
other Commonwealth which alms 1o
control this question. Regarding the
selling of liquor In pluces where Feder
al llcenre has been secured where no
District permit has been sought nor
granted, the Commissioners may. It is
said. Instruct the police to take action.
Taking of testimony In the Kalbfus
healing will be resumed tomorrow
morning at 11 o'clock, and It is possible
that may be the last session.

WOMAN IS THE

Man only thinks ho Is tho lord of cre

grace of line.
Women feel their sovereignty grow
less sovereign, therefore, as their weight

prevail, woman must be graceful. Man
will not escape slavery, but he will be
