Miss-Elsa Bernadotte, told
t ? e C. A. ot her interest in
the life: of the factory girl and
started out to find a job. She
walked Chicago streets for several
days, answering advertisements,
without success. •
Then, when she had about decided
to give up her quest, she found a
place . in a leather loft,- where
tanned hides are sent to be cut by
power machines into the desired
shapes for sewing. In the evening
she goes home to a little room not
far from her factory. .
She has not called on any of the
Chicago society women who are
watching her experiment, and will
not.until July 30. That is the day
the-hotel clerk .-says ‘-Miss Berna

She came to America to attend a
Y. W. C. A. convention in Wash

guest of Mr. and Mrs. John D.
Rockefeller, jr., in New York. When
she came to Chicago she was en

ATLANTIC CITY, Jifiy 28.—After

five days with only fruit and ber

Turnbull, who disappeared from his

shore road begging passing motor

said that he had been living alone
in the woods ever since he left
home. He has picked berries in the

Silent since 1818, when it was dam
aged by a shell from a German long
range gun, the famous organ in the
church of St. Gervais, in Paris, is in
use again. The exact date of the
making of this Instrument is not
known, but it is believed to have,
been, built in the early part of the
sixteenth century, which fact natur
ally propounds the question as to the
first organ used in this country, and
also as to the first organ-builder in
America. . .
The first organs heard in America
were introduced by the Spaniards,
but there are no authentic data, and
the Brattle organ niay be regarded
as the earliest reliable contribution
to American organ history. Accord
ing, to old records this instrument
was "the first organ that ever pealed
to the glory of God in this country/*
■lt was originally the property of
Thomas Brattle, who imported it
from London in 1718 and bequeathed
it to the Brattle Street Church in
Boston, provided it was accepted and

« Dad’s Bread to the Poor. a
“BREAD” is a gripping, human interest, Metro-Goldwyn picture shown at Loew’s Columbia all this
week. The play is based upon the novel “Bread,” by Charles G. Norris, one of ihe most-talked-of books z
in recent years.
_ D DAD’f 3READ is the most-talked-of bread in Washington and it is fitting that this picturization of a ?
quest for BREAD and this wholesome food product be associated in the public mind at this time.;
The makers of DAD’S BREAD want the people of Washington to think more about BREAD and see - —fi*
the pictured story at Loew’s Coluiqbia.
Every loaf of DAD’S which costs only 7 cents, is exchangeable for a ticket to any performance
of “BREAD.” Just drop in almost any grocery store, buy a loaf of DAD’S BREAD, take it to The Times *
, office or a branch and receive in return for it a theater ticket worth 31 dr 50 cents, as you prefer. g
The loaves of DAD’S BREAD thus exchanged will be distributed to needy families and charitable
tutions in Washington by the Salvation Army.
1 You can buy Dad’s Bread in most every grocery store or where bread is sold. - t

Brattle Street Church failed to
comply with the provisions, and
after remaining unpacked in the
tower of King’s .Chapel for* several
months, it was used there till 1756.
Then it was sold to St. John’s Church
in Newburyport, where it was In

The first organ built in America
is generally attributed to Edward
Broomfield, jr„ of Boston, but
many deny this and* give the* honor
to Mathias Zimmermann, a carpen
ter of Philadelphia, wild, it Is said,
built an organ in that city some
time before 1737.
During the eighteenth and nlne
teerith centuries, the Germans and
Swedes were the chief organ build
ers in America. Four of them be
came famous between 1740 and 1770,
namely, Hesselins, Klem, Tanneber
ger and Harttafel. Franklin writing
in 1756 from Bethlehem, Pa., to his
wife, said that he had "heard
very fine music in the church;
flutes, oboes, French horns and
trumpets accompanied the organ.”
Then followed such men as Thom
as Johnson, who built an organ for
Christ phurch, Boston, in 1752;
Pratt, Appleton and. Mclntyre
Later came Hook and Hastings,
Beben, Booth, Jardine, Roosevelt,
Hutchings, Plaisted and Company,
Johnson and Sons, of Westfield,
