Or, In the event you were shom pictures and told the names of five various types of crooks, could you a week later pick up the photographs and distinguish one from the other? Well, If you cannot. A. B. Richard! son, a memory expert of Chicago, 111., can. lie demonstrated his remarkable gift of memory before police and court officials. The demon stration was given in- the board room of the District Commissioners In the District building Maior Raymond W. Pullman, super intendent of police, arranged for Mr. Richardson to give the demonstration of his remarkable memory to mem bers of tho police department He stated he wanted tho members of tho force to Know the dollar nnd cents value of a good memory, not only to business men but to policemen. "I asked the policemen to attend the demonstration as a matter of In spiration to them, feeling that it might help develop poor memories if there are any In the police depart ment." said Major Pullmnn. Fie policemen were given as many automobile license tags, on the back of wMch was written the makes of machines. Each tag represented a particular type of automobile. Mr. Richardson gazed at the tags as the policemen casually passed him. each telling him. the type of car the tag belonged to. A short time later the policemen returned with the tags and Mr Richardson, without a moment's hesitation, gave the names of the au tomobiles the tags represented. Remembered 'I'm All. Mr. Richardson came to Washing ton two week ago. He visited Major Pullmnn. who showed him pictures of five well-known crcroks. pickpockets, burglnrs. and yeggmen. giving him the names of each. Yet-terday Ma;.ir Pullman, at the demonstration, produced the pictures and asked Mr. Richardson if he could name the crooks in the photographs. cense tag numbers.

Thli Interact la Increased, It was learned today, by the fact that if the measure falls to pass this session of the Maryland Legislature, the Mary land Staate board of health Is pre pared to Insist upon very radical changes in water and sewer systems throughout the Washington suburb an sanitary district created by the bill, as well as construction of addi tional systems where necessary to protect the health of the communi ties. $150,000 for Project. T. Howard Duckett a member of the Washington suburban sanitary commission, is authority for the statement that the necessary im provements and additions to exist ing systems will Involve an Imme diate expenditure by the communi ties affected of mora than flSO.OOO. Full authority to compel these changes Is vested by existing Mary land law In the Maryland State board of health, and It is known that that board views existing sanitary conditions within tha area affected by the pending measure as grave In tha extreme, constituting an act ual menace to the health not only of Maryland residents, but of residents of the District of Columbia as welt Attention wss called to the danger of allowing existing conditions to continue. In a report made two years ago to tha Maryland Legislature of 1916. and the health authorities on both aides of the District line have realised for years that the Increasing nnllutton ef itriiDii fiowlna- Into the District of Columbia from Maryland threatened the health of tha District of Columbia. Bxtenaloa Authorised. It was a realization of this fact which led Congress at Its last session to enact legislation authorizing the extension of District of Columbia water and sewers to Maryland. Both Rock Creek and the eastern Branch are said at this time to be seriously polluted by Maryland sew age for which thero Is no other out let Inasmuch as practically all of the nearby Maryland territory Is higher than the District of Columbia and drains naturally Into the District It Is said to be possible to prevent detrimental results by the Installa tion of purification plants at each of the communities affected. From the Business Office Viewpoint Is An EVENING Newspaper and Sunday Evening IT IS read on Sunday by the same people who read It the other six days of each week? And it brings the same increased results that advertisers are obtaining from The Washington TIMES the other even ings of the week. Is an evening newspaper the same good medium for ad vertising results on the seventh day as on the other six days of the week? Before answering this question we shall give you the opportunity to take a shot at it from a negative standpoint We realize that such a suggestion is almost as unfair as that ambitious school marm who asked the class to tell her why soap was good to wash with six days a week, but not nearly so good on the seventh day. To which query little Billy Wise replied, "There ain't no answer to no such question." E C. Rogers, Business Manager The Washington Tunes BOSTON. Feb. 4.

Cadets at the school for ensigns have been commended tor their actions during the lire. When they saw that 30,000 rlfla cartridges were threatened by tha blaze, the cadets risked their lives and brought the explosives from tha building, box by box. Their ex amlnatlon papers, turned tn Saturday, but not corrected by their instruc tors, were also saved. Priceless Harvard relics that were stored In the building were also saved by the cadets, aided by Prof. Lowell and other members of the faculty. The origin remains a mystery.
