Wonder how many tons of un utilized HUMAN energy goes to waste. No one will ever know, because human energy, unlike any other kind of energy, is not a measurable quan tity. We contend that NO individual makes the most of his energy—or horsepower, as one might say. Some people CONSERVE their energy to the point of dormancy; others BURN up their energy in a reckless man ner, and some alternately burn and conserve their force, which is also a VERY serious thing. Find out YOUR horsepower. Run your mental and physical machinery at its proper speed, and the problem of existence will SHAPE ITSELF MECHANICALLY. The trouble with American people is, they are apt to OVERTAX their horsepower. Afternoon Tea (Restaurant) Special Saturday af ternoon tea from 2:30 to S:30, 25c. Bamberger restaurant, fifth floor.

The prison committee of fhe of Freeholders will be swamped for the next few days with applications for the position of chef at the Cald well penitentiary'. Warden Ferdinand J. Hosp complained that the pris oners, who are "filling in” as cooks during the vacancy, drop tobacco into the soup and other dishes. Warden J Hosp told the committee, which met " for the first time yesterday, that the culinary department had reached such a stage that the prisoners werp complaining. "The 'trusties’ at work in tha kitchen smoke,” declared the warden, "and several times 1 have found to bacco crumbs In the soup.” He asked ( that the cook be engaged a» soon as i possible. It is still questioned whether or not former Freeholder Christian Abner will take the position of chef of the penitentiary at a salary of <1,000 a year. He was appointed by the com mittee last night. Clerk Frank E. Ward was requested to find out what his Intentions were, so that the position may be filled as soon as pos- i sible. Another appointment, that of outside guard for night duty, will also be made, and the Civil Service Commission will be asked to submit a* list of eligible candidates. If the recommendations made by Warden Hosp are carried out, the prisoners will b6 supplied with tooth brushes and toqth powder, for sani tary reasons and to prevent their smuggling them* in, as is often done. Other Improvements were suggested, and they were all referred to a special , committees comprised of Chairman Mfcttia, Director Evans and Freeholder Ryman. Prisoners from the police courts may be given time off for good be havior in the near future. The com mittee discussed the plan last night and referred tt to County Counsel Jones. Mr. Jones also stated that the freeholders might recommend the re mission of a <500 fine against Mrs. Fredericka Aichelmann, a midwife, whose one-year sentence expired on December 22. 1912. Friends paid the fine, with the understanding it would be repaid if the freeholders approved.

ANY BILL YOU WANT, SAYS SULZER TO SUFFRAGISTS ALBANY, Jan. 17.—Both Governor Sulzer and Majority Leader Wagner, of the Senate, have assured the ad- „ vocates of "votes for women” that they could have any sort of woman suffrage legislation they wanted. These assurances followed the re quest of Mrs. Joseph P. Gavtt, of Albany, that a clause, which would require that “a citizen by marriage" shall .have been a resident of the « United States for five years, be in serted in the bill already Introduced. Governor Sulzer told Mrs. Ga,v!t that the women ought not to take his judgment In the matter, but should try to get the best kind of a constitutional amendment they could. “Any kind that is satisfactory to the women generally,” he said, "will be agreeable to me.” Mrs. Gavit said she would consult with suffrage leaders_in_New_York^ amusements. nDAPTFID’CfABR PLACE I KvJX 1 Ul\ 3 THEATRE ANNIVERSARY BILL TEN BIG ACTS GRACE HAZARD.
