ANY ANCESTOR WOULD DO Remarkable Declaration oF One of the Daughters of the Revolution. Mrs. Kllvert's Brilliant Beading Io- gan CarllHlo Goinjr to Europe for His UenlUi Exlilbltion. A Du Maurlcr Is Eadly needed In "Wash ington Society. That at least is the con sensus of opinion of the observant ones who from time to time collect data upon the score of "Things that hud better been left unsaid." Under this heading prominent place should be accorded the speech made by one of the members of the Daughters of the Revolution. For some undiscovered reason this particular member of the so ciety seemed to consider it her mission in life to recruit new members for her pet organization. The fact that she has a fine lineage from which to present tho proper credentials of membership so fully fills her mind as to apparently exclude the very important consideration that occasionally there may be others in society equally happy in this respect. If such consideration ever really does percolate to the inner recesses of her mind, it is not apparent on the surface so far as her general conversation is con cerned. It happened one day that in talking over the organization with an acquaintance in i .i.Antw ol... ..-, ln. ...- ....... K.. m society, she waxed eloquent upon her par ticular hobby and urged that her friend become a member of the organization. It so happened that the especial woman to whom she -was speaking, prides her self upon the fact, real or fancied, that her ancestry can be traced liack in an un broken line to Adam. All unaware of this state of affairs, Uie valiant Daughter this state or affaire, the valiant Daughter if .H5 JvoluUou L.lurjtleretl on in hennvi- uuu w iCi i-j.-uu lu jum tuu uifcaui-- tloa. Taking the hesitancy on Uie part of her friend to arise from the fact that her an cestry was of such dim or humble origin as to make a membership rather difficult of accomplishment, if not altogether im possible, Hie Daughter or Uie Revolution concluded her request in the most Insinu ating manner possible. "It is not necssary, you know, to be de scended from an officer," she said. "If one has had an ancestor in any way what ever connected "with the revolution, even in the humblest capacity, that is all that is necessary. It might have been that the ancestor was simply a washerwoman for the soldiers or a camp follower." Mrs. Kilvert read yesterday morning at 11 o'clock before a most appreciative au dience herbnlliantand exhaustive paper on "Personal Life in Its Relations, Intellectual and Physical," at her residence, No. Oil Nineteenth street.. The paper was a fine rhetorical uroductlou, abounding iu beauti ful language and replete with interest to all who have mado a study In the slightest degree of the subject of mental science.

Complaint Tliat tlio Officials of tlio Company Huvo Fulled to Keep Tlielr Promises to tlio Men. The Columbia Railway Company, instead ot giving its men relief with the change to the cable motor, has permitted them to fall upon yet more arduous lines. They for merly had time to eat their lunch. On many occasions now they are deprived of that, and the gripmen are doing far more Still, they do not complain, and some ot them even say they like it. They do not join the Street Car Emplo cause they have been advised that it will be better for them not to do so. To say they think the company is earning enough to treat them better might result in dis missal , so they say hard work makes them strong and keeps them out ot mischief, and to miss lunch gives a good appetite for a squarcmealwhentheygethome. These men claim to work from twelve and a halt to thirteen hours daily. They are allowed eight or ten minutes' lay-over at the eastern terminus to gefrtheir meals and rest, but it they are caught by a rail road train at the Baltimore and Ohio cross ing and delayed they must make that up out ot their own time. They go on the car at morning and are expected to remain there continuously for twelve and a half; hours. Forthis service they get $2 a da The gripmen especially suffer with the change. They are instructed to Kten their eyes on tho track; they are confused by tho jarring ringing of the gong and their nerves are set on edge by the grinding and clangor accompanied by handling the grip, 'which is much more severe in its demands than niauaging the horses. Nervousness makes life a burden and they look with longing at the work of the clerk with shorter hours and belter pay. There are about seventy-five of the men outside the station force. They are not grumbling, but Jay they expect the man agers to keep their promises of shorter hours. They are sure this can be done be cause travel is iucieased since the cable was put iu. The men would liko to be put on terms soniethlug similar to those given the Wash ington and Georgetown cable employes. There Is also some ground of discontent on the Metropolitan line. Most of the men are satisfied, but there are four cars where the men earn less than $1.40 a day which is considered tho lowest living wages. One man, it is said, makes only 90 cents a day.
