Some time ago I had my eyes tested,

Aly friend, who was with me, said she
wasn't so sure about It. On leaving
the doctor's ofllco we boarded a
crowded car, my friend going to the
front and leaving me to tako a vacanf
seat In the rear. All of n sudden I
could see hardly anything, and In
sitting down I sat on a young man's
lap. I quickly removed to the vacant

relief was In the blnck glasses I wore,
for I knew no one would know mo

Congress Likely to Act on Police Unionization
WASHINGTON. Congress is likely to' take n hand in the question of the
unionization of tho police force and Us nlllllatlon with tlie American Fed
eration of Labor. If It does, It will come nbout In this way: In Washington,
Instead of tho Issue going to a strike,
it has been taken to tho courts by tho
police union. Tho union has nsked
for an Injunction preventing the com
missioners of the District of Columbln
from carrying out their orders that
any member of the force found to be
long to a union nfllllatcd with a labor
organization would be discharged, on
the ground that their right to organize
Is illegally Interfered with.
Tho pressure of the American
Federation, with its four million mem
bers, Is being used In Washington to win recognition of tho pollcV union. The
District commission's, on the other hand, hnvo taken a position from which,
they assert, they will not retire that no member of the force may belong to
a police union nfllllatcd with a labor organization. The commissioners have
full Jurisdiction, but already' the contest has extended to congress and It le
likely that before tho struggle Is ended a vote on some phase of the question
will bo forced.
For example, Senator Myers of Montana proposed In the simute that
congress Interposo by refusing to vote the pay of any member of tho Washing
ton police force who belonged to a union. In pointing out the nutlonnl Im
portance of the question the Montana senator said:
"If the police department of the District of Columbia Is permitted to
unionize and nlllllnte with a superior body of organized labor, you may be
suro that the pollco forces all over the country will follow suit and do the
snme thing." ,
Senator Thomus of Colorado said he thought congress should inform tb,e
District commlsstonprs that it was squnrely behind them.

Engineer of Wisconsin Highway Com
mission Tells Benefits of Patrol
System of Maintenance.
Karth ronds will be in exlslenco
over wide areas for many years to
'come, notwithstanding tho rapid exten
sion of "pormnnent" road beds of dif
Mr. F. Sergeant, a division engineer
of the Wisconsin highway commission,
"After a season's experience with
Iho patrol system of maintenance In
division No. 7, whore wo have prac
tically nil earth roads, I am more thnn
ever convinced that this typo of rond
can be fairly well maintained by this
system, even where subject to consid
erable heavy motor trafllc.
"A patrol section should not be more
thnn six or sevon miles In length and
should bo taken earo of by one man
with team. This man should be held
responsible for the condition of his
section at all times nnd should be re
quired to devoto nil of his time to the
"The pntrolmnn must have a good
team, and the wagon box equipped
with a dump bottom. The county
should furnish a light two-horso blade
grader, road plane, plow, scraper and
necessary small tools, such as shovel,
pick, bar, brush scythe, rake, etc.
"In spite of nil tho claims made for
tho road drag as n maintenance tool,
we find tho light blade grader or the
roud plane far superior to it, and we
advocate the use of these tools entire
ly for road maintenance. We find that
road drag having no bearing except
on tho blade, has a tendency to gougo
nut the matcrlnl In soft spots making
them still deeper, nnd giving the rond
a bad, wavy surface, while the blade
grader or the road plane, having u
long wheel base or bearing surface,
cuts only on the high spots and dis
tributes the material in low places,
building them up and giving the road
a nice, smooth, driving surface. A
blade grader should be so constructed
that one mnn can drive the tenra and
make all adjustments necessary while
the machine Is moving, ns only one
man Is required on this work.
"An earth road with low crown nnd
badly sodded shoulders ennnot bo
properly maintained by the patrolman,
but should be first trimmed up with u
heavier outfit, cutting oft and remov
ing heavy sods, properly heaping up
the crown, filling low places and open
Ing up drainage.
"The blade grader should not be
used on earth roads when they are
sloppy, but should be used as soon as
tho material is dry enough to roll nice
ly on the blade, and pack Into tho ruts
nnd depressions. And no great amount
of material should be moved at one
j time ; a quarter or half inch cut Is suf
( licient for the best results, furnishing

Army Gas Masks Are Proving Extremely Versatile
RMY gas masks are proving extremely versatile. A vaudeville comedian face
ts tiously uses a gas mask to protect himself against the hot air of his fellow
comedian ; while lu a more serious way, the worker In a match factory renders
himself Invulnerable to deadly chlorine

fumes by wearing an army mask.
An engineer wrote to the chemical
warfare service of the war department
asking for a gas mask, because he
was growing old and could not stnnd
the smoke which Hooded the engine
cab whenever the train passed through
a tunnel. The mask was sent, nnd
the engineer wrote that It saved him
his position. Other engineers have
since bought masks for the same pur
pose. A Now York society woman
stepped from her limousine Into the office and demnnded a gas mask. She
explained that she had Just opened her New York house, und that moths were
positively eating up her clothes and house furnishings, ller butler, ordered
to fumigate, had purchased a large quantity of formaldehyde und three dozen
sulphur candles, lie spruyed formaldehyde all over the house, and lighted tho
three dozen candles. The fumes soon became so strong Unit It was Impossible
to stay In the house, and she had hurried after a gas mask In order to have
some one open the windows. Her footman, who hud been In the nrmy,fltted
on the mnsk and entered the house without being at all affected by the fumes.
The woman's pets, a monkey, cat and parrot, wertfall found dead In the housfi.

gress by Representatives L. C. Dyer and C. A. Newton of Missouri. It Is o
compromise between one designed by
tho St. Louis men nnd one by the Na

Under the provisions of the bill a
penitentiary sentence awaits uny one
who stenls an automobile, buys a
stolen car, or has one In his possession,
knowing the car to be stolen property,
or drives a stolen car from one state
Automobile dealers have long
waited for a federal law to protect
them. Their organizations have,
urged tho members of congress to pass a law rather thun to let each state
handle this nmttor. With a federal law on the books there would be no con
flict between the various states, as the law would be the same In all. The bill
Includes the following:
"Section 2. Whoever shall In any stute, territory, or the District of
Columbia, steal or unlawfully take, carry away, or conceal, with intent to
convert to his own use, any automobile, automobile truck, ot any other motor
vehicle, orsunll buy or receive or have In his possession any such nutomoblle,
automobile truck or nny other motor vehicle, knowing the same to hnvo been
stolen, or shall thereafter, in any other manner or moans transp'ort such auto
mobile, automobile truck, or other motor vehicle In Interstate commerce, to
any other state, territory, or the District of Columbia, or to a foreign country,
Hhiill bo deemed guilty of n felony and upon conviction thereof shall be pun
ished by Imprisonment for not morethan ten years."

(Prepared by tho United StiUes Depart

While It is true Unit various factors
contribute to increase or reduce tho
attendance at schools In given sections
of the country, It Is worthy of com

"great comet," whose revolution oc
rupled l!02 years, was first seen In Au

but Haley's comet, nnmed after the
astronomer who calculated Its prog

depths of space that has appeared
down the ages, nnd to which succes
sive names have been given Heln's
comet. Donatl's comet, etc. Prom the
records of history It seems that tho
comet appears to foretell some world
disaster. It appeared before the. fall
of Jerusalem under Titus; In the reign
of Louis the Debonair, 837, and the
king died shortly after: It appeared
before the dentil of Caesar, 4IJ B. C.
Again It appeared three years after
the capture of Constantinople by the
Turks. 1450. It appeared In 1801, Just
before tho Civil war, and In 1010, be
