I AM AN ENTHUSIASTIC AND CHRONIC MOTORIST, BUT STATE WITHOUT HESITATION THAT WE TOL ERATE BAD CONDITIONS HERE, CONDITIONS WHICH WOULD NOT FOR AN INSTANT BE ENDURED ABROAD. f SVith the rapid development of the industry and the increasing nee of feofor vehicles for general transportation purposes has come a multiplica tion of PERILS WHICH SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED. «■' No day paeees during which fatalities chargeable to the automobile îo not occurs In the city of New York alono motor vehicles KILL TWO PEOPLE APPROXIMATELY EVERY THREE DAYS. New QTork's record la not blacker than the average. There has been a toler ance difficult to understand of conditions which are really intolerable. Even If it be deemed impossible to require examination and licensing of every person who shall be permitted to oporate a private motorcar it still remains quite possible to FORB] D THE OPERATION OF ANY MOTOR VEHICLE BY ANY ONE EXCEPT THE OWNER, a licensed chauffeur or such persons as possess the written authorization of owners and through documents duly âled with the authorities are duly designated as the owners' agonts. CO-OPERATION BETWEEN MANUFACTURERS, MOTORISTS AND THE AUTHORITIES ALONG REASONABLE LINES WOULD SOLVE MANY PROBLEMS. Americans Have Higher Ideals Than Mere Money Making By EMILE BOUTROUY of France, Exchange Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University A VERY important and BRILLIANT INTELLECTUAL CLASS E.\ 1STS in the United States which aspires to take up the moral —— direction of the country. THE INTERCHANGE OF FRENCH AND AMERICAN LECTURERS HAS ENABLED US TO KNOW THE IDEALI8TIC SIDE OF THE AMERICAN SOUL. IT HAS TAUGHT US NOT TO REGARD ΤΗξ AMERICAN SOLELY AS A MERCHANT OR MANUFACTURER OR A CHICAGO STOCKYARD TRADER. The existence of a literary and scientific and even a poetic and philosophical movement in the United States cannot be disputed. Ameri can literature already occupies tf very great place in the world of letters. The American poets particularly are REMARKABLE. Professors of the highest rank teach philosophy at your universities, ajid altogether a great effort is being made toward the HIGHEST AND MOST DISIN TERESTED CULTURE. For this reason I wish for the closest relation ship between the United States and France, which is considered the rep resentative of such culture. Cleanliness Is the Foe of Sickness By Dr. WILLIAM B. GRIGGS of the Children's Homeopathic Hospital, New York CARELESSNESS IN PROPER CLEANLINESS AND IGNORANCE OF WHAT IT MEANS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST CAUSES OF SICKNESS, ESPECIALLY AMONG CHILDREN. The baby's nourishment is the most important factor of its earlier life. We should go back to nature as much as possible. Too many moth ers FOLLOW THE PRINTED FORMULAS for sicknesses of chil dren. A physician should be consulted for the children's ills. Each case Tequiree a different treatment. Mothers must be FIRM IN PUNISHING the children, not in a harsh, but in a kind way. The best children are those brought up in a happy frame of mind. The children should be tauaht to LOVE THEIR PARENTS AJSrn NOT TO FEAB THEM MISS WILSON TO WED TOMORROW 411 Is Ready For White House Noptials. MARINE BAND TO PLAY.

Washington, Nov. 24.—The historic east room of the White House will be the scene of another wedding tomor row afternoon, when Miss Jessie Wil son becomes the bride of Frands B. Sayre of New York and Bethlehem, Pa. For several days decorators, florists and workmen have been busily en gaged transforming the stately room into a bower of beauty. The room is vu τ iuuu vr nu nuuo oai,iu tujjcs, π u stretch from the entrance of the main corridor to the opposite window, In closing the doors of the blue room and the dais on which the Tirlillflnt event will take place. An aisle Is marked off with ribbons In thia Inclosure, down which the wed ding party will proceed. The presi dent's family and relatives and the bridegroom's family will be grouped about the base of the dais. Directly back of them the cabinet members and their wives and daughters will stand with the members of the supreme court and their wives, the vice presi dent and Mrs. Marshall, the speaker and Mrs. Clark, Miss Genevieve Clark, the dean of the diplomatic corps and Mme.

A bugler of the marine band will blow "Hail to the Chief" in honor of tho president. As the last note of this stir ring air dies away the marine band, stationed behind a screen of palms in the main corridor, will begin the wed ding march. Despite the desire of the president and Mrs. Wilson that little about the details of the wedding be made public until after the event, the description of the bridal gown and many other of Mies Wilson's dresses seems to be an open secret η nor g the members of so cial circles in the capital. The wedding gown Is described as thoroughly up to date, reflecting the prevailing bridal fashions of the season. It is made with a long, -jarrow train trimmed with lace and is of light cream colored satin or namented with orange blossoms and rare old lice, an heirloom In the Axson family, which before has served many a bride of Mise Wilson's mnternal line. The customary tulle veil will be worn. This, too, will be adorned with orange blossoms, which will come from the Wilson home 1-: Columbia, S. 0. «lobular Lightnh._ According to Professor W. M. Thorn tou of Armstrong college, globular lightning descends slowly from a cloud, generally, after a violent clap of thunder, In the form of a brilliant bluish ball. It bounds from the earth when It touches and then moves off a few yorde horizontally. These balls readily follow an electric conductor— « gaa pipe, for instance —and burst when they touch water or sometimes In the open air. The ball then disap pears instantaneously with a violent explosion, which may do damage and which produces a strong smell of ozone. Thornton believes with reason that globular lightning Is made up princi pally of a mass of ozone. This hy pothesis· explains why the color of the ball is usually bluish, why the lumi nous mass descends slowly through the air, ozone being of a dssjslty about 1.7 times that of air, and finally why the instantaneous disappearance of the ball Is accompanied by an explosion, for the transformation of ozone into oxygen liberates a great quantity of energy. y Golf an Ancient Qime.

SPECIAL CLASS IN ALL SCHOOLS Should be Formed for Special _ _Children That are "Mentally Unusual" to Keep Them Apart from the Others. CLASSIFICATION IS NEEDED That 12 out of every 100 pupils at the threshold of the public schools are "mentally unusual" and need special treatment, if possible apart from other children, is the conclu sion reached by Dr. Arnold Gesell, of Yale University, in a publication just issued by the United States Bureau of Education. "Take an ordinary kindergarten and first grade, with a combined en rollment of 100 pupils," says Dr. Gesell. "Among this number we may expect to find at least one child feeble minded; one child who stut ters; two or three seriously lisp; another extremely anemic; a badly spoilt child; another babyish—a year or two retarded in mental or moral growth; and still another morally weak. There will be one 'negative' child—passive, colorless; one over sensitive, nervous child; one super ficially precious child; another dis tinctly superior—eager, ardent, im aginative, sociable. Special Class. "For some of these children there is no better disposition than prompt assignment to a special class, the special class method having been put into successful"operation for 13 dif ferent types of children. But even the special classes—particularly the so-called ungraded classes for back ward children have been established in our large cities—are greatly in need of inventory. The diversity of the ungraded class membership is often pathetic ally picturesque. Here is the roll call for one such class in a large eastern city: 24 boys, 16 girls; na llUIlcil 1 l lfcîo , iNUIWegmil, Γ I tJ 111 11, lllSIi, Armenian, Italian, Austrian, Ameri can, Chinese; names range from James Moriarity and Ong Yung to Arcangelo Christiano and Nishan Kalehadoarian ; ages range from 6 to 18; mentality, from giggling im becility to ambiilous intelligence; morality, from truancy, cigarette smoking and thieving to good be haviour; parentage, noted in special cases, includes a drunken mother, an insane father, and in three in stances, gypsies; physical condition, from partial blindness and deafness and spinal trouble and anemia, tl vigorous physical health. Think of the problem before this teacher,, who may not even have a working defi nition of feeblemindedness in her consciousness to aid her in classifi cation and instruction!" ' Classification Everywhere. In the opijiion of Dr. Gesell, the time is coming when all our large municipal school systems, and per haps county educational systems as well, will have the equivalent of a department of child classification aiid special classes. "Child classification is the basis of child hygiene," he illMarea, "but it Is more. The prim ary school may develop into a socio logical clearing agency for the dis covery and registration of all child ren who, when adults, may prove socially dependent, defective, or dan gerous. Child classification thus be comes a part of the task of social hygiene as well." Sultan* and Beard·. Mohammed never shaved. and his beard was considered eacred. Hia namesake, the conqueror of Constanti nople, is described as having had "mustachlos like leaves over two rose buds, and every hair of his beard was as a thread of gold." It was he who In reply to a question as to his plane for a campaign said, "If a hair of my beard knew them I should pluck it out" Great was the scaqdal when one of his successors, Sell m the Grim, took to shaving. "I have cut off mj beard in order that my vlzter may have noth ing to lead me by," he replied, and gellm'e ν tilers knew better than to bandy Jokes with him. WITNESSES SHY IN WIRE TAPPING CASE Whitman Thinks Soma Have Been Tampered With. New York, Nor. 21,-The chief (lift! culty attending the investigation of District Attorney Whitman Into police protection for wireless wire tappers baa been that Ttctlms who have Infor mation that would 'be of great use hare refused to testify. Mr. Whitman and his asslstaut, Frederick Groehl, bare a strong suspicion that these wit nesses hare been tampered witb. The members of the wire tupping gang all confessed to Mr. Whitman j and are anïious to turn state's evl j dence against the policemen who a< cepted protection money, so Mr. Willi ! man does not believe that any of tbo | wire tappers have tampered with those ! potential witnesses. He believes that the fixing has been done by member-. ; or former members of the police do partment who are interested la block ing the prosecution. Mr. Groehl has been blocked several j times. One of the wire tappers would j tell him of a witness who could'prove collusion between the >vlre tappers when they were operating and mem bers of the police department. Other wire tappers would confirm the story of what the victim ought to tell. Mr. Groehl would sea the witness, Induce him to outline the testimony he could give against policemen and then sum mon him to the criminal courts build lng to get the story down In an Bifida vit. When the time set arrived the swear to his former testimony, and Mr. Groehl would have to beglu a bunt for a new witness. This has caused delay, and It is prob able that there will not be any Indict ment until a week from today. The grand Jury will be busy the early part of this week with the John Doe inquiry into corruption on state roads and ca nals and on Wednesday will be dis missed, so there will be no time foi tbe present grand Jury to heai»the ten timony against the policemen. Bombay'· Bird Market It Is a common practice In India to keep birds as pets In eaptlvity, parrots being most popular for this purpose, hut cockatoes îdeîiiss (s suïsûer kind of talking bird), canary birds, doves and gray headed love birds are also frequently seen in cages.

One Sided Humor. After the company had gone Mrs. Mason said to her husbaud, "What on earth did you mean, John, by telling the Flemings that my humor was posi tive, but not négative?"

A light had already been ap pHed to a pile of collected underbrush, which was to eerve as a pyre for Davis.
