Joan signifies "gift of the Lord." and there is considerable question as to "whether its origin was Eng lish or Teutonic. " Afany event the name first made its appearance as Joanna and is said to have originated with Jo anna, holy , woman of the gospel. She was never canonized, so it is believed that the name was adopted rather in honor of one of the Saint Johns than as a tribute to her, par ticularly as there are 20 feasts ot St John on the Roman calendar and only two in honor of Joanna. In the twelfth century, the name frequency in southern France, when ladles named Juana in 8panlsh and Jehanne or Jeanne in France mar ried into every royal family of thl nme. xne nrsi ttugiisn princess so called, was the daughter of Henry II; indeed, almost every king had a daughter Joaoer Jhone.

It became the elass name for domestics, and in this day ot servant problems, one might well understand how it came to mean "gift of the Lord." Joan's talismanie Jewel is the heliotrope or blood-stone. It is an opaque stone, deep green in color, and sprinkled with red Jasper, as with blood. It promises staunch af fection and true love for the wear er, whose lucky day is Saturday and whose, mystic number is four. ELIZABETH THOMPSON Oct 1?. Boston 1 dty aUsatia are worktag tm a plan to cat a straight, broad artery through the network-, ot crooked streets la the wester part ot the basinoss distrloj. " This woaM aot ordinarily, be statement to cause any great ax-, dttsment for ft the course of its Eiatorr Boston has "gravely consid ered ao loss than 100 proposals to simplify the maze or ua street sys tem. The lateet plan, however, has approved by the legislature aad is bow before the town council. It really begins to look as if Bos ton might eventually see this par ticular proposition through. - The proposed channel wouia in volve the widening of same of the streets it would follow, and the cuttlna through of some new strips of street to make a continuous, atraieht thoroughfare. It would provide a abort cut through the dis trict south of the Common snd it would attract a large amount ot traffic which now overcrowds the numerous narrow streets snd lanes. Boston still expects sons Uy reallv to atraiahten its streets, snd say cttiren, will tell yoa Just how it ought to he done. Meanwhile the crookedness of the thoroughfares is a byword, and a sort ot trade mark of the cfty. A visitor can have all .the exer else and excitement he wants aim ply trying to find the shortest route from a hotel to aa office building. In some parts of the most congested honninc- district walking in a straight line la next to impossible, for the sidewalks are so - Jammed wltiTwould-be pedestrians that the only way to travel with any speed is to wriggle in snd out among the alowly moving throng. Anyone who becomes skilful at thla busi ness of wrlggling can advance at least four blocks an hour and at the same time acquire a suppleness which comes in handy when dodg ing taxlcabs and wagons. , A Crowded Street. - The best place to observe traffic at tts slowest is on Washington street where the narrow sidewalks are lined with lunch rooms, the atres, office buildings, and innum erable shops, from little, crowded stalls, to big deportment stores. Anything which any Bostonian might want ia to be found on this street and presumably half the Bostonlana are here all day. strug gling, alwaya with dignity and tol erance, to fill up their Boston bags so that they can seek the subway and the evening paper. One of the peculiar things about Washington street is that the other side always looks only half as thick ly populated as the side you picked out to travel, and' of course when you dodge a few automobile! and traffic cops to cross over, the side you were on looks more deairable. After hopping back and forth a few times you conclude that the mob is about evenly divided. The best couse then seems to be to retire to s side street where navigation Is leas interesting ' but more speedy, and where you either get lost in the maze ot turnings or walk a few blocks only to come out on a blind alley. At this stage ot the adven ture onl ya policeman can solve the mystery and give yoa a fresh start toward the original goal. The traffic police are one of Bos ton's most efficient institutions. After the police strike last winter, 400 of the old force remained loyal and the others 1.1 62 men gave up wearing white gloves in the day time and retired from public life to become chauffeurs, lunch room proprietors, and watchmen on pri vate property. In their piacea Bos ton has taken on 1,200 men, all but about 25 of- them ex-service men. Most of them had been in action overseas.
