City Called Washington Is Not Known to the Law
WASHINGTON. It cannot bo proved by the census office thnt anyono lives
in a city called Washington. Congress convenes there, but knows the
city not. Verily, Washington Is a literal example of what a wit once called
ty, no citizens; that tho city, which
was dreamed of In tho early days as a memorial to tho first president
of the United States, Is called Washington only by courtesy.
There aro only two business transactions that concern the city ns a city?
you can buy n railroad ticket or mall a letter to or from Washington. '
People will tell you offhand thnt Washington is coterminous with the
District of Columbia. That Is a resonablo conclusion but It is not supported
by nny legal definition; and, moreover, thero Is no specific authority for tho
origin of this name as applied to the federal territory.
It is understood thnt legislation is about to bo introduced to chango all
this, fathered by one who contends that It was Intended from the vory begin
ning that tho federal capital bear tho name of Washington; wherefore, if
tho District of Columbia and the federal capital are synonymous, the former
term Is a corruption which has crept In nnd should bo discarded.
Tho idea Is to formulate n bill demanding that the words District of
Columbia shall be struck out of all legislation concerning tho federal capital
and tho words Washington City bo inserted In their place.
"Made-in-America" Flags for the Coast Guard
" rV? ADE-IN-AMERICA" flags may be substituted for tho bunting that now
1Y1 Hies from coast guard cutters and stations. Tho coast gunrd Is ex
perimenting with flags of cotton material, with the possibility of substituting
cotton flags for the bunting flags
bearing the devices of the revenue
cutter and life-saving services, as
fast as they wear out and nre retired
from service. The cotton flags may
also replace the signal flags on coast
guard cutters, if tho tests being made
meet with approval.
The bunting flags, when wet and
frozen, conditions that aro accom
panied by strong wind, are frazzled
out on the ends quickly, and are soon
unserviceable. It Is claimed for tho
cotton flags that they will weather these
over. Also, the cotton flag costs about
considerable item of expense, whero
many more In shlpholds nnd station lofts, nnd also 17,000 signal flags, count
lng sets In use and those in reserve, owned by the coast guard.
There are 44 coast guard cutters in service, and most of them having
one or more extra flags besides tho one flying from the peak. A flag is flying
dally from each of tho 285 coast guard stations on shore, and perhaps as
many moro are hold in reserve. Each
twenty-six signal flqgs of tho international code, making a full Bot.
The flags of the former revenue cutter and life-saving service will con
tlnuo In use on cutter and station until
boar the title, "United States Coast Guard," instead of tho former appella
tions. It may be years before the last flag representative of the older serv
Ices is disposed of.

"Guam," repeated tho chief. "How long will It take you to get ready
to go thero?"
"I am ready," answered Smith, figuring that he was to be dispatched
on an ordinary Journey. "Whero Is it?"
"On the other side of tho world," said Johnston, without cracking a smile.
''Better go homo and pack up. You will need a trunk for thiB trip. You
will cover about twenty-five thousand miles before you get back."
Smith, like a good reporter, did as he was told., "When ho returned In
the morning ho was accompanied by a pretty little woman.
"My wife," he Bald, Introducing Mrs. Smith to his chief. "If you have no
objections I will take her with mo. I will pay her expenses. We never havo
had a real honeymoon trip and this looks like a real chance."
Chief Johnston gave his consent and in a few minutes the gleeful Smiths
were on tho way to Union station.
It probably will take Smith about one day to check up the accounts of
Postmaster B. F. Duarte of Guam.
Uncle Sam Will Conserve the Thanksgiving Bird
(F the American turkey is to play as Important a part In the Thanksgiving
and Christmas feasts of the future us it hns in tho past, people of the
United States must learn more about the methods of raising this great
domestic bird, according to the ex
perts of tho United States department
of agriculture. At the present tlmo
tho turkey Is considered ono of tho
hardest of any of the members of the
poultry family to raise. Disease kills

Is said to bo tho principal cause for
frequent shortage of supply and tho
variation In prlco which Is observed

ot methods of management, not only of turkeyB, but alBo of guinea fowl. The
guinea fowl la occupying a more and moro Important place as an article of
food because of tho fact that it has taken tho place of game in many parts
of tho country where wild game birds have become scarce.
Mr. Weiant will travel through all tho sections of the country whero
turkey raising hns been developed as an industry. Tho government's expert
will study not only methods of management in tho different sections, but will
look into the cause of tho great loss In turkeys. The principal cause, It is
generally known, Is tho peculiar disease known as "black-head," and tho
agricultural department's expert will study Iho methods of management
which have been put into operation to check the spread of this disease.
