A noted humorous lecturer, who was Invited to deliver an address to an audience of convicts In a Western pen itentiary, noticed that the auditors laughed heartily, but did not applaud. After the lecture the warden of the institution ventured an apology. "They didn't seem very apprecia tive, did they?" he asked. "I thought they seemed to enjoy it very much," the lecturer replied. "But they might have clapped a lit tle, the warden remarked, "instead of just sitting there with their hands folded."

EORGE WASHINGTON connection with the capital city of the nation began when, as President of the United States, he appointed a com mission to locate the capital on the Potomac river, "a few miles above Alexandria and adjacent to George town." The congress sitting In Philadelphia directed that the commissioners be ap pointed and instructed them as to where they should locate the permanent capital. Those com missioners named the city for the man who had led the victorious armies of the colonies in the Revolution and who was then serving as Presi dent. Many fairy stories have been written about how Washington personally selected the site for the capital, "even driving some of the surveyor's stakes," etc. The unvarnished truth is that be merely carried out the will of congress by ap pointing a commission which was instructed by congress to do a certain thing. 'From the day the tract ten miles Bquare was staked out Washington's Impress has been In the city and Its environs. That Impress stands out clearer as the years pass. More than a million persons, Americans by birth or adoption, gain new inspiration every year merely by looking upon the material things that connect the days when Washington was moving about there In the flesh with the present time. Thousands of for eigners benefit in the same way.' There Is never any pause in the stream of pilgrims to Mt. Vernon or In the throng that Is always on the way to the top of the Washington monument. Winter and summer, through sunshine and storm, the homage paying to the "Father of his Country" goes on. Every recurring anniversary of his birth seemingly Increases the Interest In his memory. On these anniversaries floral decorations are invariably piled high In the tomb at Mt Vernon, and neither branch of congress ever falls to provide that his farewell address shall be read. Probably because the point has never been em phasized many persons have the idea, it seems. that Washington lived for a short time In 'the city that bears his name. There Is also a popu lar belief that the Washingtons at one time oc cupied the White House. . Washington was never a resident of the permanent capital. The seat of government -was In Philadelphia when con gress voted to locate the capital where It is, and Washington had a temporary home in that city. On returning from Philadelphia at the close of his second term as President he guie consider able personal attention to the early developments of the new capital. He frequently rode up from Mt Vernon on his favorite' black horse to see how things were coming on. Who would undertake to say that be did not visualize the national capital In some such form as it stands today? If he did, he saw In his Imagination the Capitol building on Capitol hill. the Library of Congress with its golden dome In the rear of the Capitol, the magnificent office buildings -for senate and house of representatives, the expansive Mall extending from the Capitol to the Potomac, with the monument to his own mem ory, the most conspicuous thing on It; and he also saw the splendid memorial to Abraham Lin coir, which has just been completed, as well as the memorial to C. S. Grant, which Is almost ready to be turned over to the government. And who again would say that he. did not have a vision of the resident section of the city extending far beyond the White House to the northwest? Washington never saw the White House occu pied. To some extent it represents his ideas of what a combined home and business office for the President should be the original Idea was that the President should make the house his residence and also his workshop. Washington as a Mason assisted in laying tne cornerstone of the White House. That formality was conducted by a Masonic lodge In Alexandria of which Washington was a member. It is certain that he was deeply Interested In the work of construction. At the time of his death the house was practically ready for occu pancy. The furnishings were being placed In position. Only a few days before his" death he and Mrs. Washington went through the entire building and, according to the chroniclers of the time, were keenly Interested In every detail of the place which was to be the home of future Presi dents. Today, as It has ever been. It is not so much the things with the Washington stamp on them. as those in the nearby districts that interest the. tourists. Mt. Vernon, of course, Is the Washing ton shrine and It will continue to be that so long as the republic endures. It was the Virginia home on the Potomac to which Washington took his bride; there he made plans for his life work, plans that were rudely shattered by the events of later years. It was from that refuge that he went forth to command the armies of the Revo lution, and It was from the seclusion of that attractive place that he answered the call to be President. He returned to the old home on re tiring from office, and there he died, and there his bones lie. When the national capital city was laid out, and for many decades . afterward, Mt Vernon was looked upon as a "long ways off" from the capital. It Is only seventeen miles away. Today there are three ways of reaching Mt. Vernon by boat, by electricity, by automobile. It Is an easy hour's travel from the business center of Washington. With these facilities the number of visitors has greatly Increased. It Is believed the time Is not far distant when a million and a half of tourists will annually visit Mt. Vernon. If you should happen to be In Mt. Vernon on the 22d of February you would. In Imagination, see Washington as be went about his country place on his birthday. "The very atmosphere speaks to you of him," said a distinguished Frenchman. Visitors marvel at the faithfulness with which the buildings and their. contents and the grounds . have been preserved. There have been, or ne cessity, eome replacements, but speaking In a broad way, things are as they were when Wash ington last looked upon them. . One can almost see the house cat coming out .of the hole under the door that led to the room occupied by Mrs. Washington. And what a sense of comfort one gets as he sits In an easy chair on the veranda and looks out . over the Potomac and across the river to the hills of Maryland, just as Washington did! "No wonder Washington did not wish to leave the place even to be President of his coun try," one says to himself, i The Mount Vernon Ladles' Aid society continues ' to care for the Mt Vernon home and lands. The country owes a debt of gratitude to this society for preserving the property. Years ago when It was about to fall Into the hands of private spec ulators this society was formed and it has dona Its work well. Many persons believe, however, that congress should buy the estate in the name of the government and throw It open & the public. Always under the management of the Aid society a nominal charge for admittance has been made. Many of the visitors linger In the country about the old Washington home. Of course no one who knew the Washington family Is now living, but there are plenty of descendants of the old families in the neighborhood who delight to talk of the old days. The countryside has not changed much In 120 years. Many houses built while Washing ton was alive still stand. Three miles south of Mt Vernon the old Pohlck (Episcopal) church In which Washington frequently worshiped Is still occupied by the Episcopal congregation. Within the last five years the interior of the old build ing has been restored and today visitors may look on the decorations precisely as they were when Washington attended. Passing time has not served to take away any of the Washington atmosphere about the old city of Alexandria, seven miles south of the national capital and on the road to Mt Vernon. The first thing the writer Is told Is that Washington "did a .lot for us." "He established our public school system," says the local guide, "and he gave us our first fire department He was always doing some thing for us." Foremost of the Washington show places in Alexandria is old Christ church, of which Washington was a member for some 40 years. The church building of brick has been preserved unchanged. The pew that Washington occupied is reserved every Sunday for strangers who may happen along at the service hour. The old sexton will be certain to relate numerous stories of the first President. He will, first of all, tell you how Washington always came up from Mt Vernon on horseback, followed by his faith ful black bodyguard In a bright red uniform ; how after services Washington was likely to linger In the church-yard to talk with bis country neigh- ( bora, and how It was frequently necessary for the servant to remind him that It was time to go by leading up the horse and handing the bridle reins to him. The members of. Washington's family, the local historian relates, always came up In a large coach drawn by four horses If the roads were heavy. Not infrequently neighbors were guests In the coach. Another favorite rendervous in Alexandria for sightseers is the room occupied by the Masonic lodge named for Washington. This lodge still flourishes. There one may look upon the .chair In which Washington sat when he presided over the lodge of which he was master, also the Ma sonic apron he wore, his wedding gloves, a pair of spurs he wore, a pruning knife he used on the Mount Vernon plantation, and a penknife which his mother gave him when he was a boy. And there is to be seen In the old lodge room the last authentic painting of him, a pastel from life made by William Williams of Philadelphia. Another old Washington landmark In Alexan dria Is the Carlyle house. This structure was there when Washington was a young man. In colonial days It was one of the best-known hotels In Virginia. The fine folks of the Old Dominion gathered there for balls and dinners and for good times generally, and Washington, the local his torians say, was present at any unusual event General Braddock had his headquarters in the old hotel when he was proceeding against the French and Indians. Making one's way back to the capital city over the v Alexandria-Arlington road numerous landmarks may be seen. This highway leads by Arlington, the resting place of the nation's heroes, and to Georgetown. As this old highway brings the traveler around the brow of a hill four miles southwest of the national capital the Washington monument looms up across the low land and the Potomac river. From no point In the environs of the national capital does the monument appear to greater ad vantagea magnificent reminder of the good works of one typical American. This monument Is a fitting companion piece for the great me morial to Abraham Lincoln soon to be dedicated. It speaks of the founder of the Republic; the other of the saviour of the Republic. Many projects were discussed before the Wash ington monument was conceived and work on it begun. At the close of the Revolution the Con tinental congress recommended the erection of an equestrian statue to Washington. Immediately after his death the congress, sitting In Philadel phia, voted to erect a monument under which he should be buried. Another project was to make he Capitol building a memorial to him. Trav elers may to this day have a peep at a vaulted chamber directly under the rotunda of the Capitol which was designed as a resting place for the body of Washington. , The Washington monument Is' the most con spicuous work of man at the national capital. The dome of the Capitol and dome of the Con gressional library and the new Lincoln memorial stand out with boldness, but the monument over- toDs them. On a clear day the monument may be seen from the crest o the Blue Ridge moun tains, 45 miles away. The memorial had its in ception In the minds of patriotic people who formed the Washington Memorial association. It was proposed to charge a membership fee of $1 and the money thus contributed was to be used in the erection of a suitable monument to the hero of the Revolution. The money came In slowly and It looked at times as If this project too would have to be abandoned. Finally In 1848 congress voted a site. The spot chosen had been marked by Washington himself as a monument to the Revolution which he hoped would sometime be built The work of erecting the monument proceeded slowly. It bad reached a height of 178 feet when the Civil war came on. It was roofed over and stood untouched until 1876 when congress again took hold and un der the spur of congressional action it was com pleted In 1SS5. - The height of the monument Is S55 feet and 5 Inches. From the lookout on the top the view of the national capital and Its environs fascinates a million persons a year. Other unpretentious memorials of Washington are to be seen In the national capital. Comedian in Hard Luck Berlin, reports the London Dally Express correspondent, has been suf fering from a new strike of electri cians. The government employed sol diers and Its new force of technical volunteers to break the strike. Bitter feeling was aroused by the suddenness of the walkout. In the hospitals the lights were suddenly cut off while operations were being per formed and In one case. It Is said, a child bled to death in the dark on the operating table. People also were exasperated at being obliged to walk home long distances in darkness as bad as London In war-time. The strike was not without Its lighter incidents. One small theater managed to carry on with extempor ized lighting. This failed In the mid dle of the second act, but the audience came to the rescue with . pocket torches, and the performance contin ued for gome time successfully. When the leading comedian was due to appear an awkward pause ensued, and this continued despite encouraging cries from the audience. Finally, a Bhadowy form appeared in the darkest portion of the stage, exclaiming In agonized tones: "I can't find my trousers 1" Monarch's Mummy Finally at Rest 'The mummy of the celebrated Egyptian king, Rameses n, reposes in the Egyptian museum in Cairo. The mummy was first Interred at Bib-anet-Muluk and was subsequently concealed from grave robbers la the shaft at Deir-el-Bebri, where it was found in 1881, and later removed to the museum mentioned. Every dozen of ancient Athens of twenty years of age was entitled to vote, . MRS. ALICE GRESHAM DODO, mother of the first Americas soldier killed in France, who gives entire credit for recovery of her health to the well-known medicine Teniae. I ntwig!. : J The following remarkable endorse ment of Tanlac was given recently by Mrs. Alice Gresham Dodd, at the Gresham Memorial Home, Gavin Park, Evansville, Ind., which home was pre sented to her by the patriotic people of Indiana, as evidence of their appre ciation of the services rendered to his country by her son, Corporal James B. Gresham, the first American soldier killed In France. Expressions of sym pathy were received by Mrs. Dodd from all parts of the United States, and the newspapers of the country carried the story of the first "war mother. The shock of her son's death re sulted in the serious breakdown of Mrs. Dodd's health, but everyone will learn with interest and pleasure that she is now In splendid health again. When seen at her home recently she made the following statement, giving the entire credit for her recovery ta the well-known medicine. Teniae. "After my dear boy's death I had a general breakdown In health," eald Mrs. Dodd. "At first it was Just in digestion. My food nsed to upset me and I had "to diet myself very care fully, which wasn't much hardship. as I lost all desire to eat Then I had an attack of rheumatism, with severe pains In my shoulders, back and arms. Sometimes I nsed to suffer a great deal, 'and my joints would get all swollen up and stiff. I was able to do very little about the house, and at times couldn't even cook a meal. got very nervous and- restless, and at night would lay awake for hours, and lost many a night's sleep as a conse quence. "A friend of mine had received great deal of help from Tanlac, and it was she who advised me to try It I am so glad I did for It proved the best medicine I have ever taken. It soon gave me a good appetite and seemed to settle my stomach so that I was no longer troubled with indiges tion. I don't know what it Is to have rheumatic pains now, the swelling and sunTness has all gone out of my joints and I am able to do the work of the house with the greatest ease. My nerves are now steady and strong. I sleep fine at night, and I feel better In health than ever before in my life. shall always be grateful for what Tanlac has done for me, and shall recommend It every chance I get" Tanlac is sold by leading druggists everywhere. Adv. Realism of the Movies. Dorothy was at a moving picture theater-with her nurse. There was portrayed on the screen a train rapid ly approaching a spot in the fore ground where a man sat on the track unaware of the oncoming danger. To the child the situation was a real one. and In excited whispers she entreated her nurse: ' 'Please have him get off the track I Please have him get off I" As the train drew nearer the spot where the man sat, the child, unable to restrain the warning which she felt was necessary, rose 'in her seat and shouted at the top of her voice : "Man, get off!"

The mild winter has been to a great extent responsible for low returns to producers of fruits and vegetables because of rot and the ac cumulated cost of storage and extra handling, the bureau of markets said In a report here. Prices started low and continued moving downward until "disagreeably close to the vanishing point," the roport added. Late winter finds the six months' depression at Its lowest, it is said, and wholesale prices have found new low levels. Dealers hold perhaps one-sixth of the potato stocks remaining and the farmers have the rest, the report continued, and at present the potato markets in producing sections are close to demoralization. The situation generally Is the same, the report added, In the case of cabbage, onions and apples. j' Rich Men Duel to Death. Lubbock, Tex. Jim C. Bowles, 60. wealthy land owner, and Jim M.

An amendment to the Nevada divorce law, which provides that every applicant for divorce must have been a resident of the state for six months preceding commencement of divorce action, was passed by the assembly of the State Legislature and now goes to the governor for signa ture. The amendment prohibits the "short-term" class of divorce, except for bona fide residents of the state. Stockmen and Farmer Held Meeting. Montrose, Colo. Gov. Oliver H. Shoup, Senator-elect Sam D. Nicholson, Charles A. Lory of the State Agricul tural College, and George T. Wells of the Denver National Bank were the principal speakers at the opening ses sions of the Stockmen's and Farmers' Conference. An address by Warden Thomas A. Tynan of the state peniten tiary on "Good Roads,'' and a talk on the "Sugar Beet Industry" by A. EL Carlton, president of the Holly Sugar Corporation were other features. A smoker was held at which former Gov. E. M. Ammons of Colorado gave the address. "The adjustment of freight rates Is the most Important reform to livestock and farming Industries at the present time," he said. "The govern ment railway guarantee cannot con tinue, and the railroads must be put on a competitive basis, the same as other business." Mr. Ammons also de clared that the state must improve transportation facilities within its bor ders and overcome the handicap caused by the junking of more railroads In the state than are being constructed. He also advised longer credit for the live stock Industry. Attempt to Rob Army Payroll. San Francisco.
