We MMUM that nn man or set
men in this day and generation, w h
women have by riow degree attain
to practically all the prerogativ
that men have enjoyed, and have i
deed in many instances superset!?
them in their accustomed spheres
l?lior, would ?Ian* undertake t?. pi
scriln* in a g? rieral way what tl
gentler sex should wear or how th?
should deport themselves. And y
many of the big department store
when.* women are employed, are r
quiring their female employees
abandon the rats and puff and cur
with which they, untvstrain?.*?
adorn I ?>their heads, and to .vear a]
parel of a pfeecribed color and cot
a sort of uniform, for the reas?
that such dress is an advcrtisemei
for the house, while at the san
time the rule prevents extravagant
on the part of clerks of small salai
in their effort to dress as well ?
those enjoying better pay. The rul
is do doubt beneficial, and may we
be extended to advantage, for thet
are many people of both KZM wh.
in an effort to keep up with the pan
vailing styles, spend a large portio
of their earnings in adorning the;
persons. In the early days of th
Roman Empire there was on th
statute books a law, which declare
that no woman should wear a gai
ment of various eolon or deck hei
self in jewels of any sort, or wear
dress which cost more than a cei
tain sum. The object of this la\
was to prevent jealousies amon;
women and to prevent extravagane
among the poor. Cato, the censoi
who was a great Roman orator o
the time, defended the i IW heft?
the Roman Senate in an eloquent an?
powerful speech when an effort wa
made to repeal it upon a petition o
Roman women, but even in that day
2000 years ago, he suffered defeat
The women triumphed, as they al
ways do, and evinced their exulta
tion by going through the streit
and Senate halls bedecked in all thi
finery they could command. Si no
that day our women have generally
secured whatever rights they under
took, and the wonder it they have
ever submitted to the dictates aj
employers. Certain it is that n?
modern Cato would undertake tc
prti-pose an Oppian law in this day
andas for ourselves, we would nol
even suggest it.
"I believe it would be a calamity
to take out of college life the disci
p.ine that springs out of such a great
game as football, demanding the
exercise of splendid manly qualities,
but I do believe and deliberately de?
clare that the peril of death and
injury inherent in the strategy o?
this game shoald be eliminated or
the game itself abandoned."
The above is the concluding para?
graph of a statement of President
Edwin A. Alderman concerning a
college game which has brought to
an untimely end some of the best of
our young men. To this conclusion
many of our college officials have
come and when a majority of the
public reach the same conclusion and
demand such changes in the game as
will eliminate the inordinate risks or
the total abolition of the game as a
college sport we will be spared the
harrowing details of young iives use?
lessly sacrificed. There is no doubt
that the refusal of parata to allow
their sons to play football aa it is
now played would do much to bring
about th" desired reform. The reg?
ularly scheduled game to lie played
between the Central High School of
Washington and the Central High
?School of Philadelphia has been can?
celled on account of parental objec?
tion growing ?,ut of the death of
young Archer Christian, and while
parental objection may not be as
effective in the large colleges, there
is little doubt but that it would bring
about the desired reform or result
in the elimination of the game. Col?
lege faculties would hardly allow
young men, though they had attain
?ed their majority, to play football in
the face of pronounced objection by
parents.
TRIED TO WRECK TRAIN IN TUNNEL
A trainload of people was saved from
probable death and injury Wednesday,
when the Southern Railway express
from New Orleans escaped the scheme
of a wrecker in Union Station tunnel.
The watchfulness of railroad detectives,
who removed from a rail a 50 pound
steel shoe, saved the train.
Dominic Falaco, night track walker,
an Italian, who has been only two years
in the United States, was arrested by
Detective Gorman,charged with placing
the obstruction on the track. He was
locked up after a severe "sweating"
by the detectives. The Union Station
officials say that Falaco confessed, not
only to wiring the obstacle to the rail
but also to former attempts to wreck
incoming express trains.
Three weeks ago a crosstie and sev?
eral stones were found lying across the
tracks used by the incoming trains
from the South and the obstacles were
removed just in time to permit a South
em express to rush by.
BRENT APPOINTED
A SCHOOL PRINCIPAL
Frank P. Brent, late Republican can?
didate for Superintendent of Public In?
struction, has been appointed principal
of Wicomico High School, at Broun's
Store, in Gloucester county, at a

School Board there is controlled by Re?
publicans.
The school is a large one, there being
three assistants to the principal. It
was organized last year by Luther C.
Lindsley. Mr. Lindsley agreed to teach
again tins year for $90 per month. The
first month they paid him at this rate,
but for last month they paid him only
|85, whereupon Mr. Lindsley resigned.
Mr. Brent was appointed.
Gov. Swanaon ?granted a respite to
Calvin Johnston, Richard Pines and
Eugene Dorsey, of Alexandria, sen
te.iced to death in the electric chair,
until Jan. 14. for all men. The first of
the men was to die last Friday and one
each succeeding Friday. i

Indisputable Argument
Gold Medal Flour
makes the most beautiful light broad and rolls possible to make out of flour. For
Cakes and Pastry, "Gold Modal" Flour is incomparable. For general baking purposes
there it no Hour just as good. One bbl. of "Gold Medal" Flour yields 40 pounds of
bread more than one bbl. of any other kind. Therefore, "Gold Medal" Flour is the
