Porter, of the Cincinnati

Cincinnati, 0., May 20.—“A1l this
talk about signaling to Mars, or even
the suggestion that Mars may be in-i
habited by intelligent beings, is pure,'
nonsense, in my opinion,” said Je’main
G. lortcr, director of the 'Jin'-nnaii
observatory and, professor of astronomy
at the Cincinnati university. “There
Is no basis whatever for believing thati
any signals can be sent from or to the,
planet or that there is any one there to
send or receive them.
“Personally, 1 do not think it possi
ble that life can exist on Mars. In the
first place, the temperature is extremely,
cold, far below anything we know of on
earth. Then the air is very rare—
much rarer than on the peaks of the
loftiest mountains we know anything
“A third great objection to the the
ory that Mars is inhabited is the fact
that we have no evidence that there
is any water whatever on the planet.
The so-called canals of Schiaparelli were
not so termed by their discoverer. He
calls them channels and does not con
tend that they contain water. I know
that some astronomers haxe contended
that the existence of these canals
proves Mars to be inhabited. T do not!
believe iU I think if these efforts to
signal to the planet are carried out it
vjl simply be a waste of money.”
THERE IS NOTHING that strikes terror to the
hearts of parents more than to be awakened in
the night by the ringing cough which accompanies
an attack of croup. The child may retire with
nothing but a slight cold and a few hours later the family
be aroused by the ominous symptoms. Every home where
there are small children should be prepared for these sud
den attacks, as prompt treatment is necessary. Do not
experiment with remedies of doubtful value, but get

Mr. Horner Krohn, of Lisbon,
lowa, iu a letter to the ruannfac
turers of Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedv praises this medicine for
what it has done for his children.
He says: "It has not only s«ved
them once but many a time. Only
two weeks ago my boy had the
croup so trad in the night that hail
it not been for having a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
the house he would have choked
before a doctor could have gotten
to the house. It is a medicine that
no one should be without at any
time.” Iris pleasant to take and
many children like it.
Attacks of croup are most likely to occur during the early
winter months, and every family with young children should
be prepared for it. Keep a bottle of CHAMBERLAIN S
COUGH REMEDY in your home. It only cost* a quarter,

New York, May 20.—“ Little Tim”
Sullivan, who, as vice chairman of the j
board of aidermen, is occupying the
mayor’s office in the absence of Mayor'
McClellan and President McGowan of
the board of aldermpn, has announced
three things he would de if he was the j
real mayor of six weeks. They arc:
“First, I would open up Coney Island '
r>n Sunday so that the poor people who
have to work the other six days in the
week -ould have a good time on the
only day left to them.
“Second. 1 would elose certain streets
on the east side to traffic during the
afternoon, se that the children who live
in the crowded tenement lupuses could'
1 have a place to play, where fhero would
he no fear of their being run over by
trucks and automobiles.
"Third. I would make a home for
New Yorkers by placing at the head of
city departments men who understand
conditions here and kuow what the
people want..”
A southern woman, a Colorado wo
man and three eastern women were
discussing the eternal question of the
attraction of the sexes, one evening.
Outside, on the balcony, four men
played bridge, oblivious of the wom
en's presence.
"In the south." said the southern
woman, "this situation could not ex
ist; the men would hurry to the wo
men when they had smoked their af
ter-dinner cigar, and they would be
making love, or pretending to; and
we would be listening to them, and
making believe we took them seri
"In the west.” said the Colorado
woman, "the men would be proposing
to us in a serious manner. Why, loot
at me! I am a grandmother at 38—
just because I went to Colorado to live
when I was 15. And I have been a
widow twice (a real widow, not a di
, vorcee); and I am a bride now. for
the third time. Western men have the
marrying habit."
■ "In the east," said one of the New
i York women, ’ men have the bridge
and club habit. They dine at the club
' together, then they go in fours to the
I theater, and after the theater they go
back to the club and play bridge till
I dawn."
i "And what do the women do?" ask
ed the southerner.
| “Why. they give suppers and card
’ parties to one another.” replied the
New Yorker. “Sometimes they, too.
make a party of three or four and go
to the theater, and sometimes they
lasso a stray man who will consent
to act as escort for a quartette of
women and come in for supper after
ward. They lionize such a man, how
ever ordinary he may be; and he ac
cepts their homage as his rightful due.
knowing how valuable an Individual
he Is in an eastern community.”
“And this state of things is getting
more marked every day," said anoth
er eastern woman, “It hi all the same
whether women are single or mar
ried; they are obliged to plan their
own pleasures and fill in their even
’ ings as best they may. without expect
ing any assistance from the men."
Now, what has led to such a sltua
Nowhere else In the civilized wor'd
can a similar condition be found in so
ciety. What peculiar characteristics of
the New York and New .England man i
and woman have brought about such
a situation? Ts it the money mania
which has made the men so oblivious
of, or indifferent to. their obligations
as fathers, husbands, brothers and lov
ers? Is it the extravagance of woman
which has driven men away into
herds, where each pays his own share
of expenses, at the chib dinner and !
the theater. Instead of paying for the
costly pleasure of a woman's sciety?
Whatever may be the cause, it is |

what might have been prevented with

It is a condition which calls for se
’ rious thought and for self-analysis on
the part of both men and women.
Of course, the woman is the great
er sufferer from this social separation
of the sexes. With all, her newly ac
quired rights, woman is still deprived
of many privileges enjoyed by men.
Women's clubs are not enjoyable
। evening resorts; restaurants and bo
-1 tel lobbies, where men meet and play
! cards, are virtually inaccessible to
' their women friends, and even the
theater can be but an occasional
! pleasure to her without the escort of ।
an agreeable man.
The excitement of bridge, played ।
for money in private homes, is al
most her only resource, unless she is j
! a woman with a profession or an ab-1
sorbing accomplishment like music,
I which distracts her mind and fills her
I evenings, or is a worker In the world
।of charities.
But there can be no satisfactory

1 When that is eliminated, there must
always be a void: and when even the I

1 the friendly associations which bring
] men and women together for mutual I
| enjoyment, are stricken out of the
- program of existence, and men leave
women to find their own amusements
.while they herd together in business
offices, clubs and hotels, what a trav-1

money buy titles to amuse themselves
and accept the man who is thrown in

to be “agreeable,” even when offen

But where lies the fault of this un
natural condition? Who can point to
a cause and name a cure for the un
social habits of “busy" American men
and lonely American women?
