•Aji Independent JVevtspapee—The Paper mt Authority." FOUNDED DECEMBER 1, 1856 W. NY. CHAPIN, Publisher A WOMEN'S WORK Newspaper exploitation of the splendid accomplishments of women civic workers throughout the country has become commonplace. Every community jolted into an ap preciation of its civic obligations by the insistence of public spirited •women immediately decides that it is ■unlike any other American community and begins to brag in the newspapers. In at least one particular the public spirited women of San Francisco have accomplished as much for the com mon weal as the women of any Amer ican city. And in another particular they have accomplished more. They have attained results without pub licity. The improvement in the condition of San Francisco's streets during the la-t year is largely due to the efforts of a special committee representing one of the women's organizations. That committee has been insistent that its work shall be accomplished through official channels without as suming the risk of friction and failure incident to exploitation by the press. That policy has been carried to the length of earnest requests that the identity of the members of the com mittee be not disclosed by the news paper? and that its accomplishments be credited wholly to the officials ulti mately responsible for them. A year ago that committee induced the supervisors to print in pocket pamphlet form all the ordinances gov erning street conditions and for the enforcement of which the police de partment was responsible. Then the little booklets were taken to the chief of police with the request that he give one to each patrolman and instruct the men on the beats to . familiarize themselves with the regu lations and then to see that they were enforced. The police department was neither bearded nor threatened. The women tactfully asked that they be permitted to assist the department in the per formance of is duties. There was no criticism, no quarreling. Extraordi nary results' have been attained and only those immediately concerned know why. These good women may well under take another work closely associated with what they have accomplished. In view of what they have done they seem to be the logical champions of a movement that will result in the employment of the auxiliary fire fight ing system to get water on San Frart cisco's streets. It is conceded that the Spring Val ley company can not furnish or will not furnish sufficient water for the needs of San Francisco exclusive of proper street sprinkling. It is difficult to Relieve that a means can not be devised to utilize the high pressure system for the dis tribution of sprinkling water from the bay. The San Francisco wind is objec tionable only because it carries street dirt. Sprinkle the streets properly and the cool winds from the Pacific will become one of San Francisco's most beneficent and prized assets. There is a job worthy the metal of -even San Francisco's women. THE BEES AT SCHOQL The Francis Scott Key school was enlivened a few days ago by the sud den swarming at school of honey bees, which clustered together, after the manner of their kind, and were rinclined to resent any effort at their •removal. Two fearless citizens, realizing what a conflict between the busy ibees and a busy lot of school children would mean, offered to remove the bees, one agreeing to give the chil dren such honey as the bees might make, the other offering to hive them :in a glass hive, so that their habits could be studied by the school chil adren. In all literature no object so small rhas occupied so much space as the honey bee. From Martial, the Roman to Maurice Maeter linck, the Dutch idealist, the life his tory of the bee has afforded subjects ?which have inspired poets of all races «nd climes Half a century ago every school •child was taught the then familiar verses of the good old Dr. Isaac .Watts, which are worth reproducing os a comparison with the modern ideas: How doth the little busy bee Improve each shining hour And gather honey all the day From every opening flower! Let dogs delight to bark and bite, For God hath made them so; Let bears and lions growl and fight, For 'tis their nature to But. children, you should never let Such angry passions rise; .Your little hands were never made ,To tear each others' eyes. A hive of bees in a schoolhouse f ould at least keep the children busy, he children would learn that, little s he is, the worker bee can see, femell, touch, taste and hear just like phemselves, and they may learn that Jtvhen the bee dislikes a smell he is Irrry apt to touch the source of the THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, EDITORIAL PAGE, AUGUST 16,_1913 odor with his sting. They would learn that for so small a creature the bee has wonderfully high develop ment of his nervous system, of his brain and all his senses. They would learn that the bee is an expert car penter, builder and trained geometri cian; that he can tell colors apart better than a kindergarten kid; he has a government of his own. As old Dv Bartas, poet of centuries ago. said. "Where's the state beneath the firma ment that doth excel the bees for government?'.' Knowing all these things and much more—as they do—why bees should go to school is a problem that would trouble people much older than chil dren to solve. And yet there can be no doubt that there is world old wis dom that no human understands in the booming, singing, zooning, busy bee. SELF-GOVERNING EGYPT Since the treaty of Berlin in 1878 there has been a strong English party in favor of driving the Turk out of Egypt "bag and baggage." At the end of last month Sir E. Grey announced in the house of commons a plan for a new constitution for Egypt which is intended in part to get rid of the Turk, whose nominal de pendency Egypt is, as its ruler, the khedive. is his viceroy, though actu ally controlled by England. The new constitution provides for a legislative assembly of 83 members, of whom 17 are appointed by the gov ernment. This body will have author ity to legislate on all subjects except those concerning the constitution. For the first time in its history Egypt will have real home rule, inde pendent of any authority, and the dream of the exiled Arabi Pasha, who headed a revolution in the early eighties, of "Egypt for the Egypt ians.*' will come nearly true, though it was England who exiled Arabi for the ideas he then advocated, which are now for the most part voluntarily to be put into effect by England her self. What Egypt really will become will be, in law, as it has been in fact, a self-governing English colony. Tur key's hold on Egypt has been so nom inal that during the war with Italy it was not allowed to send its soldiers through Egypt, and with the adoption of England's new project Turkey will quietly vanish from Egypt, which, under self-government, should ulti mately become as prosperous as when it was actually the land of the Pharoahs. A BAY BATHING BEACH At the expense of a few thousands of dollars the city of San Francisco can insure to its citizens the enjoy ments of one of the finest protected bathing beaches on the Pacific coast. Thanks to the fact that the mitnici pal government has never exhibited any affirmative interest, the great ma jority of San Franciscans are wholly ignorant of the beauties and advan tages of Bakers beach. Under the bluffs, with its westerly end opposite Thirty-first avenue, is a long sheltered cove. An ideal bath ing surf breaks on its broad strand. It is protected from the ocean winds. The bluffs behind it form a great natural, circular sun trap. Every Sunday and holiday through out the spring and summer a few scores of family parties brave the difficulties of reaching the beach to enjoy natural advantages unlike any thing within several hours' travel of San Francisco. To reach the beach they must struggle down the cow and cliff paths leading from the northerly ends of the avenues from Twenty-fifth to Thirty-second. The extension of one of these streets and the construction of stair ways to the beach floor would in volve but slight expense. That would make the beach easily accessible from both the municipal railroad and the California street line of the United Railroads. The erection of a practical and satisfactory municipal bathhouse or pavilion would involve an expense of only a few thousand dollars. This expenditure would provide the people of San Francisco with one of the finest public resorts on the coast. Other cities have proved that the erection and maintenance of munici pal bathing plants is mighty good municipal business. Every Sunday through nine months of each year the people of San Francisco spend thou sands' of dollars in the quest of the kind of outdoor recreation they are unable to find alt home. A' little money spent at Bakers beach or at Black point inevitably would result in turning a very large portion of the money now spent for recreation outside the county into the channels of San Francisco's home trade. v . It has leaked out that Secretary Bryan offered unsolicited advice to the Balkan nations and in the polite lan guage which diplomacy uses was told to mind his own business. That's what a meddler generally gets. Tou can send 20 pounds by parcel post now. By and by if European methods are adopted you can send yourself.

This is how I came to learn about Clarence, the wayward parrot, and his devoted mistress. They live not far from Guernevllle. The in cident would not have caused such ex citement among the campers if they had known from the first that Clarence was a parrot. Clarence and the dog. it appears, had been having words which, but for the protecting armor of the parrot's cage, would have led to bloody deeds on the part of the dog. Clarence, remember ing the contemptuous epithets he had hurled at the dog from the safe refuge of his wire prison, beat a hasty retreat the following morning when his mis tress opened the cage and let him out for his daily flutter. He noted, per haps, a gleam of satisfaction in the dog's eye. At any rate he flew out of the window and took refuge in the uppermost limbs of a large bay tree that sheltered one wing of the bunga low. * * * "Naughty Clarence! Come down, you bad boy, or you'll get hurt." This is what the campers heard. In vacation time very trivial incidents are regarded as great events, and it was not long before word was passed that a little boy had climbed to the top of the bay tree and was in peril. The distressed woman soon had company in her grief, "He'll come down," she assured them, "but. oh, I'm so afraid he'll get hurt." * # * She took all her meals under the bay tree that day and for hours maintained a siren song in the hopes of luring Clarence back to his cage. "Muzzy is here," she sang to the un seen runaway: "Muzzy isn't angry any more. Come to muzzy, Clarence! Turn along, turn along. Muzzy has nice crackers, Clarence. Speak to muzzy, Clarence!" Toward dusk a neighbor, who knew, volunteered to climb the tree. As he mounted from limb to limb, the tired but hopeful voman assured Clarence: "It's a nlcey man, Clarence; he won't hurt muzzy's pet." From the treetop there suddenly came an "Ouch!" followed by remarks that can not be repeated here. The man and parrot came down together. Clarence was restored to hfs cage and night fell on a reunited family. * * # All of which would seem to indi cate that Clarence is receiving a lot of attention that might better be bestowed on some small boy or gltl, either of whom would make a bet tar companion for the dog. anyway.
