National Red Cross Society has decid
ed to spread among bituminous mines
the First Aid to the Injured system,
which was introduced several years
ago- by the anthracite operators of
Pennsylvania, A cat has been donated
to the Society by the Pullman com
pany; it will visit the mines through
out the United States to make known
to employers and employes the most
approved first-aid methods.
With the sanction of the Interstate
Commerce Commission, every raidroad
to which the Red Cross Society has
made application,' has agreed to fur
nish. free, transportation for the car
The scheme is expected to be In opera
tion the latter part of the month.
Dr. M. J. Shields, the man who start
Bd the first-aid-to-the-lnjured classes
In the anthracite coal fields, has been
retained by the American Red Cross
lociety to carry, on its campaign. Dr,
Shields will travel with the car, and
. the United States Geological Survey

aid packets and a miner's first-aid
book; a summary of the instructions
In the book is translated into Polish,
Slovak, Lithuanian and Italian.
' In recent years the first-ald-to-the-Injured
corps have become an import
ant feature of the work of the com
panies in the anthracite fields. The
corps are formed exclusively $t the
mine workers, and a spirit of rivalry
between the first-air organizations has
kept efficiency up. to the top notch.
Every year the companies hold con
tests, and prizes are given to the win
ROLLA STOLE WHEEL
Holla Doner, a seventeen-year-old
boy living at 21T South Twelfth street,
was in police court this morning,
charged with the . theft of a bicycle
from Peter Husson. The wheel was
found in the boy's possession, and as
there was no Question as to his guilt,
the prosecutor asked that a stiff sen
tence be given him. There have been
numerous complaints about stolen bi
cycles and as it is for the most part
the work of youngsters, Attorney Ladd
believes sound punishment will have a
good effect. The sentence was $10.0)
and costs and ten days in jail. For
disorderly conduct, Mildred Groce, col
ored, was fined $J.OO and costs.
But After AwhiU tho Young Man Mado
His Case Clear.
As the young man entered the old
man looked up and scowled.
"Well?" said the old man shortly.
"lour daughter" began the young
man, but the old man cut him off ab
ruptly. "I've noticed that you've been hang
ing around here a good deal." he said.
"I suppose that you've come to tell
me that you love her and want to
. "No," replied the yonng man calmly.
Tve come to tell you that she loves
me and wants to marry me."
.' "What?" roared the old man.
. "She says so herself," , persisted the
v. "I never heard of such an exhibition
of egotistical Impertinence," said the
old man. ,
i "Then you. misunderstand me," ex
plained the young man. "My assertion
fs dictated by. policy and not by Im
pertinence, You see, it's Just this way.
What I want is nothing to you; now,
"Why er not exactly."
- "I might want $1,000, but that
wouldn't matter to you, would it?"
. "Certainly not."
"You're under no obligations to sup
ply me with what I want, are you?"
"Then what a foolish proposition it
would be for me to come to you and
ay, 'Mr. Parkinson. I have been very
favorably impressed with your bouse
and furniture. or 'I think I'd like your
daughter or anything else in that line.
But when your daughter wants any
thing it's different. Now, isn't It dif
ferent?" "It certainly is different" admitted
the old man cautiously.
"Precisely," said the yonng man.
"She and I figured that all out very
carefully last night You see, I have
no particular prospects, and we could
both see that there wasn't one chance
In a hundred that you would give her
to me. Then she suggested that you
had never yet refused anything that
he wanted, no matter what the cost
might be. and that perhaps It would
be a good plan to change the usual
order somewhat We sort of felt that
it wouldn't be right to ask you to do
anything for me, but it's different in
her case, as I remarked before. So
I'm here merely as her agent to say
that she wants me and that she wants
me very much and to ask you to please
see that she gets me. She never has
wanted anything so much as she
wants me, and I am so favorably dis
posed toward her that If you care to
make the investment I shall be quite
willing to leave the terms entirely- to
you and her." , , '".

SESSION WARM ONE
A warm session of the board of pub
lic works is expected this morning
when representatives from the various
public service corporations operating
in Richmond will appear in answer to
summons, and hear a few instructions
on the preservation of the city's
streets. At a recent meeting, Mayor
Zimmerman announced that the prac
tice of tearing up streets and not re
pairing them properly would have to
be discontinued, and the corporation
officials are to be notified that if they
do not fix the bad places they have
caused, the work will be done by the
City and charged to them.
Although such a step might involve
a legal dispute, Mayor Zimmerman ha3
announced that he has determined on
this course. Gas and water mains,
street car tracks and wire conduits are
all concerned. When the mains are
tapped, the hole is refilled and a
mound is left Some streets are in
such bad condition that the street com
missioner will have to use the steam
roller in repairing them.

A tragedy was narrowly averted at

McNally warned him and he turned
