The thread-bare servant problem
will have become a thing of the past

the deficiencies of some housewives,

the construction of many houses. The
tendency of modern apartment houses
Is to minimize work so that no serv
ants will be needed.
The homes of the future will prob
ably be warmed in the walls from
some power-generating station. Air
will enter through proper tubes in the
walls which will warm the house and
will capture the dust, and it will be
spun out again by simple devices.
Scientific builders are now planning
to do away with the walls meeting
the floors at right angles, as by
rounding off the angles between wall

Belated Suggestions for Newport
Luckily the Newport season is near
ing an end. If it wasn't, if there waa
yet time, we might expect that in
their strenuous efforts to outdo one
another the society dames would re
sort to extreme measures. For in
One of them might construct a gar
den on towers and call it the New
Hanging Gardens of the Hesperides,
and then give a garden party with cap
tive balloons for elevators.
Some other dame could dig a canal
through her domain, with real dykes
and wooden shoes and canal boats,
and windmills operated by perfumed
hot air, and give a reception a la Hol
Another idea would be to lay out a
section of the Garden of Eden, with all
the animals from some big menagerie
running wild behind a heavy wire
partition, and then call it "An Even
ing at Papa Adam's." with all the
guests in Watteau costumes.
A real cute scheme would be to
have a duplicate of the ark and give
a "Father Noah at Home," with the
guests assuming the disguises of the
animals. If the ark could be made to
roll a little so the guests would feel
qualmish, it would add greatly to the
amusement. Then at a certain hour
there could be a Noachian german on
deck with railroad stocks and gov
ernment bonds for favors.
REFLECTION ON THE JUDG
Ultra Piou6 Lawyer Drew Upon Him
self Wrath of Justice Gray.
Justice Gray of the United States
supreme court, who has just retired,,
had a long experience on the bench
before going to Washington. Many
years ago. when he was a member of
the supreme court of Massachusetts,
he had an amusing experience with a
certain Boston lawyer, an exceedingly
pious man with a taste for evangeliza
tion, who had his letterheads printed
with a verse from scripture in large
type following th name and address.
On one occasion, having to make an
ex-parte preliminary argument be
fore Justice Gray in chambers, in
which it would be necessary to dis
close certain parts of his client's case
which he desired not to make gener
ally known until the trial, he wrote
the judge a note asking that he be
allowed an opportunity to speak to
him in private. He was somewhat
chagrined when MB note came back
to him with a ecrawl across the bot
tom: "Request denied, with a sug
gestion from the court that counsel
base future petitions on a more ap

out the meaning of this, as he was
not aware that he had qjfioted any law,
but glancing up the page he discover

letterhead bearing this text:

The most memorable ride In Eng

in 1701, parliament elected the house
of Hanover to the British throne, was
passed by only one vote, and this
casting vote was given by Sir Arthur
Owen, the member of parliament for
Pembrokeshire. He arrived at West
minster, dusty and travel-worn, only
just in time to record his vote, hav
