He was appointed a tally-keeper for the proposed Wash ington Monument in 1873 at a salary of $900 a year. Today he is elevator operator at the Monument, at the same salary, ani! holds the record of "raising" more people than any living person. When excavations were started on the Monument in 1879 he kept account of the materials hauled and acted as a guard. In 1890, after the completion of the structure, he was appointed "conductor," the rank which he still holds. He has been running the elevator every day since then. He has taken every President since Hayes to the top of the Monument. In the twenty-nine years has been running the elevator, it is estimated he has traveled 34,462 miles, and that he has carried 4,800,000 passengers. Editor's Note: How much longer will it be before the old Gov ernment employes get a square deal from Congress in the matter of pensions? The McKellar-Keating pension bill is still pending in the House and the Senate. This bill makes pension provisions that meet with the favor of the Government workers. Why delay? The days that lie just ahead will' be the most critical the world has ; known, according to the Rev. Charles J Wood, who preached on "A Decisive j Crisis in the World ? Deatiny" at the .

' What Would You Give For' a Ticket Like This?

Gerard ad- ' vised in an address at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. ' Mr. Gerard was answering: the ' 'question: "What shall we do with the! Kaiser'.'" The scheduled address was abandoned, the former ambassador to [Germany giving his time to answer-| | ing questions from members of the au dience. ? '-Th* Kaiser ought not to be sent to1 St. Helena," he said. "That would be too dignified. And he should not be executed, for that would make a mar- j tyr of him. He should be escorted around the world on a trip of exhi bition so that people might see the man responsible for so much misery." In answer to other questions, he said that "Germany should pay for every cent of damage she caused in Bel gium;" that Germany, on account of the destruction of her chief resource, her goreign trade, could not pay as much indemnity as the allies wffre de manding: that "Germany should not be admitted to the league of nations until, by years of repentance and atonement, she has paid for her crimes."

"It is silly to say that other planets ; j are uninhabited because they have no j atmosphere or are so hot or are t>o' | different from the earth.
