8 k7 NOTHING BUT BDTS FOR PROVOST CHIEF Capt Charles C. Harvey Ap pointed Military Marshal of District of Columbia. Army field regulations describe a ' provost marshal as a military officer who acts as chief of police, has charge of prisoners, etc. Dirt Major Raymond W. Pullman, Super intendent of Police, is in no imraedi: ate danger of-loslns his Job and'epau lets, as a result of the naming of Capt. Charles G. Harvey, U. S. A., as provost marshal" of the District of Columbia, but Should martial law be declared, Captain Harvey virtually will be the supreme power of this town so far as policing it is concerned, as he then would outrank in authority even the District Commissioners, but Secretary of 'State Lansing says that such an eventuality will not come to pass unless there develops a situation filled with public, peril, but Federal authorities are confident that they have absolute control of the German menace as represented by spies and other alien agencies,- and that the possibility of a dangerous uprising of German sympathizers Is remote, but Meanwhile, the "War Department, at the Direction of President Wilson, Is taking no chances, and has desig nated Captain Harvey as provost mar shal, but The captain, who is assigned to the crack Second Cavalry, stationed at Fort llyer. until further developments, will act as sort of a buffer between the cuardsmen ar.d police and be sort of roundsmen of the soldier force, but His duties, so far as the "prisoners" are concerned, will not weigh heavily upon him, the' guardsmen having; no authority to make arrests for any cause, but The cuardsmen are expected to call a policeman, if one is handy when trouble threatens, or use the rifles they are toting, 'and report the results to their superior officers, who will In turn in form the provost marshal, but Altogether Captain Harvey, who is forty-one years old, a West Point grad uate, good looking, and a good fellow, will have nothing very much to do under existing conditions, but If the enemy gets any sort of grip on the National Capital through spies 'and sympathizers, the provost marshal ship will' be some Job.

IMS SUES FOR LOSS OF TOOTH Brooklyn Bath Superintendent Asks Traction Company to Pay. NEW YORK, April 5. Alleging that through the carelessness of a motor man he had lost one of his teeth. Dr. William Hale, superintendent of pub lic baths, Brooklyn, yesterday filed action for J 1,000 against the Brooklyn Rapid Transit in first district munici pal court. In Brooklyn. He values the lost tooth at 30 and asks $4 for damage to artificial teeth. According to Dr. Hale, he was rid ing on the front seat of an open car on the Sixteenth avenue .line when the car bumped into a car ahead. Dr. Hale in his complaint continues thus: "The plaintiff was precipitated from his seat so as to-'wreck the plaintiffs artificial teeth and to knock out the largest and best of his remaining teeth, leaving In his upper Jaw onjy one small tooth which does not fur nish adequate support to the artificial teeth, and it is impossible fir the plaintiff properly to masticate, there by Impairing health and nutrition, all to the plaintiffs damage in the sum of, $1,000." POPULAR MEDICINE BY DR. HIRSHBERG Intelligent Observations of Rules of Hygiene Will De crease Illness. By Dr. 1 ICllIRSIIBERG. While a little sore spot or a harm less tumor on the retina or in other portions of the eye may make you think wrongly and misjudge 'people and things by what you erroneously think you see, there are more things before your very eyes which you do not see than there are non-existent things which some people sometimes feel convinced that they do see. Dr. Johnston, a. graduate from the department of experimental psychol ogy of the Johns Hopkins University, was very much surprised -to' learn from an elaborate problem In research work which he' undertook that blind dogs and other blind animals were soon able to get along almost as well without eyes as with them. Yet his experiment should not have astonished him at all. Man seldom Uses- his eyes after .childhood and youth. By this, statement of fact, I mean that those who fall Into habits, ruts, and routine, who do not travel or acquire new and fresh experiences, commonly use the noser of vision only 80 per cent Eyesight lives by being keptrresn with new Impulses.

The proof of this Is to be found In a myriad of dally experiences. Ask yourself and then examine your ac tions about the location of your tooth brush, broom, pencil, or your neck wear. You will br amazed to find that you seldom look for the hook or slot in which your toothbrush hangs. All, you are accustomed to do Is to reach out take the brush, use It, and then replace it in its correct position with scarcely a glance. Indeed, you are able to do this In the dark. Sim ilarly you use the typewriter, play the piano or any other instrument without the eyes seeing the flngers'or Icev noaltlona. What does all this mean? Does it Indicate that the eyes are not needed, that man would be "Just as well off" or "get along Just as well without eyes? Routine Dnlls Sight. Not a bit of It Vision or the power to distinguish light and shade hastens your knowledge of many thine. When you first see new things they are really perceived by you. Constant repetition ana ramin arltr with the same sights makes you become unaware of them. You may not notice the dirt and dust, the worn carpets and dilapidated furniture in your own home, but your visit to some one else may make you sniff In disgust over the same unnoticed con ditions In your own house. Correct vision, like correct percep tion of anything, is best favored by frequent changes of scene with Its rearrousal of dormant, dulled, glut ted, and cloyed sense of shjht If you do the same things every day, if you limit your life and habits, your work and activities to the com monplace routine, day in and day out, your whole anatomy will become as blind as when in the dark you tie your cravat, brush your hair, reach for your toothbrush, type your man uscript or play the piano. You are. to all Intents and purposes, blinder than a mole and more a slave to your muscles than any eyeless amoeba to Its pseudopods. (Copy't 1S17, by Newspaper Feature Service). TO ADOPT BELGIAN BABIES. George Washington University has raised $104.40 In Its campaign for the adoption of two Belgian babies, to be known as the "George Washington babies."

Has When next Sunday smiles on Wash ington, as a good Easter Sunday should smile, and the gaily bedecked crowds wend their various ways to the numer ous churches the handiwork of Mother Nature will be in as much evidence as that of the proprietors of Washington's many clothing establishments. For Flowers are cheap this year. "Last year." a local florist said today, as he stroked his chin, "spring came later and the flowers were not quite ready to expose their blushing and deli cate blooms to a dusty world, and conse quently the florists had fo sell flowers from outside Washington or else from the hothouses. This year, however, the season has come earlier, and for that reason flowers, as an average, will not cost the public quite so much." At Easter time, lilies are most In de mand. Sweet smelling, fresh, delicate lilies wlU sell this year at from 12 to J3 a dozen, which Is slightly cheaper than the flowers were last year. American Beauty roses will sell at the average-price of J10 a dozen. Carnations will be $1 a dozen, sweet peas 1 bunch, violets 2 a hundred, and tulips. $1 a f dozen. Easter time Is the Christmas of flor ists. On and before Easter Eve the florists begin receiving orders and are worked over hours. One report had it that tulips' and other plants raised from bulbs would be higher this year because of the embargo in Holland, where the tulip time is famed. But while the hindrance to bulb ship ping from Holland may last for some time, it probaby will have no effect upon the tulip prices In the United States. There are florists in New York who make a business of raising bulbs, and these men can supply the need. It, Is thought, should the time ever come when all shipments are prevented from Holland. . KAHN GIVES WARNING Tells Congress Troops Should Have Full Year's Training. . A warning that at least one year's training must be given American sol diers before they are sent to Europe else they will be butchered" was uttered In the House late yesterday by Congressman Julius Kabn, of Cali fornia, ranking Republican of the Military Affairs Committee. Mr. Kahn was rather pessimistic concerning the shortage of officers to train American troops. "Kor years," said Congressman Kahn, "I have called attention to the utter unpreparedness of the United States In the case of a great emerg ency. We speak of men who might act as officers to drill our forces. No doubt you can And an ample number of men who can train 500,000 recruits, but warfaf has changed. "There is no longer the pomp and panoply of war. Fighting is done In trenches. The training today is en tirely different from any the world has ever known. And even though these officers will be able to train the men who are called Into the service, in the usual drill of the Infantry, the artillery and the cavalry, I take It we will have difficulty In finding men who can train In modern warfare. "It will take a. long time to train 500,000 men so they can go to the front. To train them, less than a year Is considered all over the world to be murder. England does not send her recruits to the front until they have been trained a year, nor does France. Italy, or Russia." PRAYED IN 8ENATE. What Is said to be the first prayer ever delivered in the Senate by a Senator on the floor was offered by Senator Smoot of Utah, who rose in his place Just as the vote was being taken on the war resolution last eve ning and uttered these words: "God bless s.nd approve the action to be taken by the Senate this day. O Father, preserve our Government and hasten the day when liberty will be enjoyed by all the people of the earth." desire. R.

Of the five alien teachers In the public schools of the District, three are French, one has taken out first naturalization reapers, and the other has signified his Intention of so do ing.
