Florence Crittenton T-lome Was
Established Thirty-two
Years Ago.
Thirty-two years af$, Charles N.
Crittenton, a wealthy bunmess man of
New York city, In addressing two
younir girls of the street, closed his
Words of advice by saying, "Go and
sin no more."
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. And today, more than
C.000 helpless girls are cared for in
Crittenton Homes established through
out the country.

If weariness can snore upon the

who does not work often sleeps well,
whereas the Industrious, energetic

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

that fatigue is a wooer of sleep only

How Editors Regard the
Achievements and Hobbies
of. Women Today.
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
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. Chicago

A. B. 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
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

the canals there, the first In this

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

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

Brightwood Citizens Determin
ed to Fight 14th and Upshur
Street Location.
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-.
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
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'
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
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

and his son. "-""
