English chil dren are rejoiced by the new summer time schedule under which the clock Is advanced one hour, but their parents ere net made so happy by the chance. The extra hour of dayllgiit cumes at the end of the day and affords the children an extra hour for play. Thty refuse to go to bed an hour earlier and their parents are In despair. The educational authorities aro beginning to display concern over the resulting loss of sleep among children. The head of one of the largest London schools has suggested that the situation be remedied by advancing the school hours. EVERYBODY.Ci!'

"Old r-a ags, bottles, old I ron!" That familiar cry that has resound ed through the alleys and back streets of every city In the United States came back to the mind of a New York Sun correspondent who stood amid the ruins of the Somme battlefields one day recently. Pozleres. Thltpval. Bapaume, and all the surrounding country form a veritable junkman's paradise. What a revel ot delight it would be for American ragpicker! to be turned loose on the scene of a modern battle! Brigade ef Jonkueh. It might not be an unreasonable suggestion for Atrtrlca to recruit a salvage brigade of trained junkmeh to come to Europe and clear up the mess that has been made. The countries that have been at war for nearly three years cannot spare the labor to do this work, and when peace comes their men and women will be needed for more vital Industries. Or If It Is not practical to recruit a junkers' brigade the work might be allowed by competitive bidding to companies organised for the purpose. Contract could be let for each ruined city at an enormous profit to the districts involved and to the contractors. For Instance, there Is a vast for tune to be made In recovering the wine bottles that have been left by the million all bver the French and Belgian territory through which the war has raged. On the road from Albert to Bapaume there are moun tains of bottles and broken glaav. Most ot the unbroken bottles are to day worth from 35 to SO Cents esrh. iuim nied nigh. It Is simply astounding to go through the wreckage of houses ot Bapaume that before the German evacuation ar with champagne bottles that wotild bring In France three francs apiece.

The victim last night was Mrs. Ann E. UUburn, of 402 First street south east night telephone operator at a downtown hotel. She left her home at 11 o'clock and walked to First and C streets to get a car. where she as aceostad by a negro, who asked where First and B streets were. Grabbed far Bag. Mrs. Mllburn turned to point her umbrella, when tne negro grabbed for her handbag. The woman held firmly to the bag and screamed. The negro struck her behind one ear and In the side. Her screams attracted several men and the negro fled. Mrs. Mllburn was taken to Casualty Hospital and later went home Another Attacked. Ten minutes after the attack on Mrs. Mllburn,' Mrs. Laura Mockabee, of 638 First street southeast, was fol lowed down First street as she got off of .a car at E street by a negro answering the same description as Mrs. Mllburn's assailant Mrs. Mockabee turned abruptly Into a yard. The negro followed and was about to grab her when she screamed and the colored man fled. FINDS GAS SHELLS LIKE RATTLESNAKES i Says Ambulance Dmer. NRli TORIT.

More succinctly, Mr. Colbert wants cart blanche for Washlngtonlans to raise all the fowls they want to. War prices are the cause. Slag Dollar Notes. Mr. Colbert points out that the ear ly morning singing of fowls, while opposed to slumber. Is worth pros pective money In large gobs. Mr. Colbert says he's unable to see any difference between encouraging home gardens to help win the war, and In giving the people an oppor tunity to provide meat food, and eggs for the same reason. "People must have eggs," he con tinues, "whatever the cost Raising chlckena In back yards wilt save the garbage, which may be fed to the fowls, but will reduce the price." Commlsalenera Can't See It.

WORTHINUTON RICH OLD GALWAY LIED UP HAND 10 SPAIN Spain and Ireland would make strange bedfellows now, but perhaps four hundreds years ago an alliance between them would not have seemed so strange. At any rate, four cen turies ago. according to the Chris tian Science Monitor, It fell to the lot of tbe town of Oalway, on the west cosst of Ireland, and one of the great centers of trade In western Europe, to be the link between Ire land and Spain. Gal way merchants went to Spain, and Spanish merchants came to Oal way, to talk trade, exchange views, and plan new enterprises. Daa oa Silk Garmiats. Oalway men of affairs were wealthy and prosperous, and It came to be a saying In those days, "as proud as a Oalway merchant" So well off. In deed, was the city, and so many Its extravagances, that toward the end oTtbe sixteenth century an Inqulry-J was held by direction or the lord deputy. Sir John Perrot with the re sult that rigid sumptuary lawa were passed. No young man, "prentice or other wise," was to wear "gorgeous ap parell ne silks, either within br with out their garments, non yat fyne knltt stockings, either of silk or othsr costlle wise." And there was much else to the same purpose. Oalway, In fact, had always beensf specially favored town. William Fitzandelm de Hurgo, the Norman, under a grant from Henry II. had BOY PIANO PRODIGY.

It was at about this time, too, that tnere came to the city those famous settlers from Eng land known In subsequent history as the "tribes of Oalway" the Blakea, the Bodkins, the Joyces, the Lynches, the Martins, and so on. There wero fourteen of them altogether. It was the civil war In England which finally put an end to Galwaya prosperity and Independence. The city stood for the King, but ultimate ly was obliged to surrender to the parliamentary forces.
