But when the girls, in all sincerity asked, "Where shall we go?" Mr. Crittenton was surprised to realize that he could give no answer, and hence- l was that, soon afterwards this practical man of affairs began systematically to supply a practical answer. He had but a short time previously lost his little daughter, Florence, and the Florence Crittenton Mission, born in the congested quar ter of the Lower Bast Side or New Tork city for unfortunate and erring women and girls, was named in mem ory of her.

If weariness can snore upon the flint, when spth finds the downy-pillow hard, why i3 it that the lazy man who does not work often sleeps well, whereas the Industrious, energetic fellow often lies awake?,- Dr. E. C. Rowe Is the latest mem ber of the psychological division to Join the sleep Mnvestigatlpn colors He undertook a study of sleep to de termine whether there Is any rela tion between the moisture, climate, temperature and atmosphere pressure and the amount of sleep. He investi gated the hours spent in work and in sleep, as well as In pleasure and. sleep. Infants as well as adult sub jects were tested. When Sleep' Soundest. Dr. Rowe discovered that when there Is too much pleasure to too much work, sleep becomes propor tionately reduced. 'Sleep is soundest on cool, clear, dry evenings when there is little moisture in the air and some mild movement of the pleasant, soothing atmosphere. On cloudy, warm, soggy or even snowy nights, other things being equal, sleep is fitful, restless, and unsatisfactory. The best night's sleep usually came on Saturday night, for subjects who worked half a day, played part of the day and were quiet in the evening before bedtime. Card playing, exciting plays, tense work at any time after, 0 to 10 o'clock except among people who aro en gaged In routine night work, such as actors, newspaper men and hotel workers disturb slep to sucn an ex tent that many card players, night diners, and workers become candi dates for insomnia clubs. Early Hour Beat. The surprising discovery was made that fatigue is a wooer of sleep only up to a certain point. Beyond this point fatigue stirs up and empties out a large amount of adrenal Juice, emotional irritants and muscle pois ons, which" prevent relaxation and sleep. Workers who sleep b'st are found to be those who quit active work it 4 p. m., live a quiet, outdoor life with out dver-cxertion for three hours, cat a light but well mixed, nourishing meal of fruits, vegetables, milk, cereals and sweets, and sit quietly in the open air, park or well venti lated building until 10 p. m. Children who are put to bed at 0 p in. bleep more soundly than those who go to bed at 7 or later. And adults who retire at 10 p m ,leep better and are in a decidedly superior' state of health than those who try to woo Morpheus at 11, 12 or past mid night.

We don't know that women are to bo blamed for desiring to be in tho mode, a desire in whiqh they are closely imitated by most of us men folks; but we -sometimes balk a lit tle at her attempts to achieve indi viduality. She can't do it, of course, and she knows it: but she Is trying to accomplish this impossible feat. She goes out arrayed In some unique and heretofore unheard-of way and enjoys herself for a brief spell; but the first woman who sees her immediately hustles off to the modiste, and the next day we have two of them, and the next a dozen, and so on until the femininity of the country goes abroad in uniformity of costumes. Dayton Herald. Miss Torbell Why Notf Washington gossip says the Presi dent is considering the appointment of Miss Ida M .Tarbell on the board of tariff commissioners. Why not? The -women of the United States are as deeply interested in tho tariff as the manufacturers. Women" arc usualiy comptrollers of the household exchequer. When tho tariff affects tho prices of textiles, boots and shoes, gloves, imported foodstuffs, and the like, the problem is their problem. The monthly bills reflect the change in schedules. They hear about the tariff from their dry goods merchant, their grocer, and their druggist. The war has taken its place, but merely a temporary place. Possibly if Messrs Payne and Ald- rlch had considered this phase of the tariff problem, they would not have burdened Mr. Taft with the Winona speech. The woman's vote at that time was not one-half so great as now. but woman's outcry against the Payne-Aldrich tariff was loud and ef fective. It will be louder and more effective next time a tariff is enacted in which they are not considered. Wejire going to have a new tariff, and it is going to be more nearly a protective tariff than the present one, unles we wholly misread the signs. We have no hesitancy in say ing that it should be. But it will be drawn more fairly if the household Interests are allowed their say In it, and we know of nobody better equip ped to represent them than Miss Tar bell. She is an able publicist. She has made a study of economics. Sho has written a history pt the tariff. We have no doubt she knows vastl7 more about it than the average Con gressman. She is a clear-headed, con. servatlve thinker. Her appointment would be more than a compliment to the women of the United States; it would be an act of Justice to the home Interests of America.

And a small cabin build there of clay and wattles made. Nine boan rows will I havo there, a hivp for tho honey hoc. And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comen dropping slow. Dropping from the veils of the morn ing to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow. And evening full of the linnet's! wings. I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; Wiiilo I stand on the roadway, or on tho pavements gray, I hear It in tho deep heart's core.

Casselman Urges Roads From City to Great Falls and Mt. Vernon. A boulevard on both sides of the Potomac river from Washington to Great Falls. A bridge, across the Potomac at Great Falls connecting theso boule vards. A boulevard from Washington south to ML Vernon, connecting with the upper Potomac Park development. These, 1n brief, were tho sugges tions made to the National Park Conference yesterday by A. B. Cas selman, as the next stage in the de velopment of Washington's park sys tem. Mr. Casselman, an employe of tbe Interior Department, has made a pro longed study of the scenic beauties of the Potomac, with a vlow to adapt ing a park plan to make them acces sible. I MIC 11B JMIHKIW, "I wish I could read you an eai toria'l from the New Tork Sun of re cent date," Mr. Casselman said, "which points to the splendid way New York State has taken advantage of the scenery along the Hudson river to establish the great Palisades Park. The Sun states that a million and a half persons visited. that park during the past summer, that 5,000 Boy Scouts were encamped there, and outlines tho other outings it made possible. Mr. Casselman told how that park had been made possible by private philanthropies In the beginning, when J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Mrs. Harrlman and others raised a fund of $2,600,000, which was dupli cated by the State, and expended upon the project. , "Now I believe the upper Potomac never will be developed unless there Is a great public demand for it," Mr. Casselman said. "A much smaller philanthropy might be obtained for the building of a bridge acrossthe river at Great Falls, a point where hidden beauties now abound that would be made accessible to the pub lic by such a bridge." Washington Is Interested. Mr. Casselman pointed out the, pro priety of connecting the Great Falls boulevard with Mr. Vernon because George Washington was deeply Inter ested In Great Falls and helped dig the canals there, the first In this country. Below the Highway bridge, and north of Alexandria, he said, there He 400 or COO acres of shallow river which should be reclaimed. Some of the portion of the original District of Columbia, ceded back to Virginia in 1840. Mr. Casselman uld. should be restored to the National government, because the Government has Interests of great magnitude, es pecially those in the power site at Great Falls, along both sides of the river. c Endorsed by Taft. He said that President Taft had recommended the acquisition by the Government of a portion of the Vir ginia tract, and that Ambassador Bryce had said: "It is an Ingratitude to Providence if the country does not use the great natural beauty of the upper Potomac" Nowhere in this country, Mr. Casselman said, does such scenery within easy distance, of a great city as that this side of the falls. He said that If the plan to have a great lake at Little Falls is car ried out that makes the development of the land above Little Falls all the more desirable. The beatuy of Washington, he con tinued, is no longer a matter of local, but of national interest. "It will not be many decades." he predicted, "until Washington has a million population, and then it will be too late to acquire tho territory need ed for the Great Falls Park plan.

INSTALLATION AT -PRESS CLUB GAY Burlesque of Gridiron Propor tions "Marks Introduction of New Officers.

The satires were at the expense of Presi dent Wilson, Secretary Baker, Secre tary Daniels, suffragists, peace nuts. Old Kink Booxe, Congressman Henry. Tom Lawson, Sam Gompers. and other notables. Some of the big men lampooned good-naturedly were there and en Joyed the fun at their expense. Leonard Ormerod made the musical hit of the' evening as "Reel, the Un dertaker." He played fifty-seven -varieties of musical Instruments more or less." Suffrage Heckling. The installation as .president of Grafton S. Wlllcox. was marred by dastardly suffrage heckling.

Jb C RENEW OPPOSITION TO HOSPITAL SITE Brightwood Citizens Determin ed to Fight 14th and Upshur Street Location. i The Brightwood Citizens' Associa tion, at Its first meeting of the year in the Brightwood School last night. renewed Its determination to fight the election of the new municipal hospital which the Commissioners are endeav oring to secure from Congress, at Fourteenth and Upshur streets north-. west. Although all business was set aside last night in memory of Louis P. Shoemaker, president of the- associa tion for seventeen years, who died In' November, Charles W. Ray, acting president, announced that in the ab sence of a December meeting, the ex ecutive committee met and voted to renew its efforts to prevent the erec tion o the proposed hospital in the northwest section. The executive committee, which has power to act when a regular meet ing Is not held. Instructed Its chair man, Mr. Fay, to take an active part in any steps which may be taken by other associations of the northwest to keep the Institution out of their section. Planned Business Meeting. The association had planned to bold a business meeting last night, but the absence of Mr. Shoemaker from the chair which he occupied for near ly twenty years, so depressed the members that they forgot ail else, and devoted the entire evening to eulogizing their deceased president. The reputation which Mr. Shoe maker gained as a civic worker was demonstrated by the fact that the Brightwood Association last night re ceived letters of condolence from three other associations, two of them far remved from Brightwood. They were Petworth, Connecticut Avenue ana Northeast Washington Citizens' associations. Wilton J. Lambert lauded Mr. Shoemaker devotion to his friends and related many instances in which he had given freely of his financial resources to aid those who sought his assistance. Heard HI Father Praised. Abner Shoemaker, the deceased man's son, attended the meeting with Mr. Lambert, and heard his father praised as "par excelence good cit izen." "Mr. Shoemaker not only had the ability and the opportunities to help his friends, but he did help them whenever an opportunity presented itself." -said Benjamin W. Holmas, who knew Mr. Shoemaker well. Daniel CConnell Callaghan, who was with Mr. Shoemaker only a few hours before he was stricken sudden ly, told of his religious character and declared that from his close associa tion with him he knew that he died as he had lived a model man. The association adopted -a lengthy! memorial prepared by George Francis Williams, chairman of., a-, committee appointed for the purpose. Embossed copies of the memorial will be pre sented to Mr. Shoemaker's widow and his son.
