Bold everywhere.—Adv. Reflections 1JI By Wm. Η. cBaewden TOADFXSH. They swell and swell and swell, un f til they almost buret. In which partic ular they are not unlike some folk I of the human spccies. Self-esteem is ' a most deserving character trait, but it so easily la converted Into self ! conceit that one needs constantly to be on one's guard, lest the transfor mation may take place without one being aware thereof. The French have one expression for the Wo, "amour propre," which reveals how closelyy related are self-esteem and self-conceit as parts of solf-love. "Good wine needs no bush," runs an old proverb. This would seem ■ to be heresy In the light of modern advertising, until we remember the ' distinction of the foregoing para • graph. Advertising, to bo effective amid the complexities of our modern life, must adopt ways and means to make known what it would advertise. > But If it is really good, its praises do ' not have to be sung, all that Is nec essary being to let people know ! where the article in question may be procured. It is not necessary to pro * claim the goodness of the wine, pro vided it Is known where It flows. A certain minister was constantly boasting to the inmates of the board ing house where he was spending the summer of the importance of his ι standing in the city whence he cames His church was the largest and 1 strongest in town, and his congrega I tlons were so crowded as to attract at tention, Just as it had been in another city where he had formerly lived. A j lady boarder, whose home was in the latter place, quietly remarked to an ! other that she did not understand ! why it was necfessary, If he really was ] so great a man as he said, for him to : be talking about it all the time; and as for his boasted Importance in her I home city, she had never before heard ! of him. I How It tickles one's vanity to listen ; to the flattery and receive the adula tion, until a little reflection makes one wonder whether men snicker r>e [ hind one's back. This is really u good | thing, for then the swelling slowly ' subsides, and the questionable eelf ! conceit is converted into the better I self-esteem. Prosperity and a too ; easy success are tho hardest thing· a strong, virile manhood encounters j in its development, since self-esteem , is apt to degenerate into self-con ceit. Although created In the di vine Image, man is linked through his body with the animal creation. ! It Is at th» same time comforting to be assured of the possibility of over coming this, through the development of that which a mere animal does not possess. DANISH Μ, Ε.

FEED New York, Feb. 24.—George W. Per kins, head of the mayor's eommitte» on foods and markets, lias taken drastic action to relieve the serious food situa tion In New York city. While the board of estimate was en gaged In discussing ways anil means of alleviating the intense suffering. Mr. Perkins went out and bought up 4,000,000 pounds of rice. He then called up Taeoma, Wash., on the long distance telephone, bought a carload of fish and ordered It dis patched to New York Immediately. It will arrive next Wednesday. Immediately after purchasing the rice he obtained permission from the board of education to petition every householder In the city through the school children to purchase rice. In It he will advise housewives to buy rice at S cents a pound and not to pay more than β cents. Should the increased de mand send up the price of rice he will control the market with his holdings In order to force It down again. Having completed these tasks, In which he was assisted by the other members of the committee, Mr. Per kins sat down and wrote a report to the mayor. In tt he said: "Other articles of food and the sup DlyJn other localities Is Investi, gated, but it is exceedingly difficult to do this as private citizens without any power of authority. We And many of oar citizens today deeply concerned over their food supply, without any centralized department to which to go and lodge their complaluts, find out what the trouble Is or any man or group of men charged with the respon sibility for constantly looking after the question of New York city's food supply."

Tottenville, Feb. 24—After the dis astrous Are on Shooter's Island In De cember, 1S16, when thousands of dol lars worth of property was destroyed. Borough President Van Name wrote Fire Commissioner Adamson, and urged him to station a fireboat at Staten Island, In order that the many important Industries on waterfront t be given adequate protection in case of Are. In his reply dated January 26. 1917, Commissioner Adamson stated: "Regarding the assignment of a fire boat to Staten Island, Chief Kenlon is of the opinion which he held when he recommended the discontinuance of that assignment, now more than a year ago. He does not believe that J the work there Justifies the asslgn I ment, particularly In view of the fact that one of our boats became use ' less and had to be disposed of, and ; two of them are now laid up for ex tensive repairs. I am going to make a request of the Board of Estimate and Apportion ment In a short time for a new lire boat, and I hope that when the re quest comes up before the board you will see your way clear to get it through. If the new fireboat is allow ed we can assign a boat to staten Is land. You will be lntere«U>d to know that I have completed an arrangement with all the railroad companies, the Standard Oil Company and other companies operating a large number of boats, by which approximately 12S powerful tugboats, equipped with Are fighting apparatus, will be made avail able on call from this department in case of a Are anywhere on the water front. The city has been divided up into zones, and every time a fire oc curs in a given zone the railroad and other companies within that zone will be Immediately notified by fire head quarters and will dispatch their boats to the scene of the fire. Staten Is land Is located In Zone G, and In case of a Are anywhere on the waterfront or In the Kill von Kull, the tugboats of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company and of the Standard Oil Company will be Immediately called, and they will respond to the fire. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company has about ten powerful tug boats fitted up for fire fighting. "Under this arrangement fire pro tection on the waterfront will be tre mendously Increased." The foregoing justifies the stand of Borough President Van Name and the citizens and representatives of in dustrial plants who protested to Com missioner Adamson and Mayor Mltchel against the removal of the fireboat from Staten Island. It em phasizes the necessity for a fireboat to be stationed at Staten^M^&nd. Mayor Mltchel should requ^^Hftta mlseloner Adamson to ae.'"®^^7~j7 boat tit - ^k>on as pos sible.

I. I. c. Ε Cornelius Shea is Re-elected Manager of Baseball Team at Special Meeting at Club House Last Night. „ to the EVENING KMWB. Tottenville, Feb. 24:—Cornelius 8hea was reelected manager of the Tottenville Athletic Club baseball team at a special meeting held at the clubhouse last night. A new club house will be erected on the grounds of the club In Bpraguo avenue was the decision reached at this time. Plans have been drawn for the new structure which will be a two-story frame building, twenty-four by forty six feet, with every convenience for an up-to-date clubhouse. A building committee composed of Cornelius Shea, William T. Abbott and Alfred Palmer has been named to take charge of the erection of the build ing. The plans were practically accept ed at this time but the committee were given time to look over them before awarding the contract when they are turned over to the success | ful bidder. The Tottenvllle Athletio ' Club purchased the enclosed proper ty In Hprugue avenue several years ago and have It about paid for. They leased the present building adjoining the grounds for the clubhouse, which has become inadequate for their use.
