President Taft and party left a
Washington thutlre recently on ae
count of the vulgarity and suggestive,
ness of tlie play, and now the man

president simply advertised tlie play
by Ids action; at least that is tlie re
suit so far. It may lie. however, that
his sea) of disapproval upon a play
of this nature, will have a wholesome
effect in tlie long run, and serve to

tlie stage of today.
This recalls to mind tile “stunt'' of

Chnrgem I.otts. the well-known ice
man, has perfected his Ice ' ox and re
frigerator on which lie has been work
ing for several years. The invention
is not only ingenious, but remarkable
in its way. lieneath the ice chamber
is placed a tint tire box, which has a
smokestack running up the back of
the refrigerator In the lire box may
be burned coal or wood, or if desired
a gas burner may be connected. Mr,
I.otts figures that l" its use a hun

Mr W'hizznn Humpp, the renowned
auto manufacturer, has completed liis

and is so regulated that whenever a
break-down occurs it will begin by
saying Isn't this aggravating?" and

Dear Aunt: 1 promised to let you
know as soon as I was comfortably
si (tied and bad steady work and I
am now permitted to write you to that
effect, i ''ive a place with one of
tlio big. public Institutions in the west
ami unless something unforseen hap
pens, I shall sta> hero for two years
at least. The position I have now
came to me unsought hioI I am under
n sort of contract with the state to
stay my two years, if I see a good
opening I inav leave before my time is
up and get into something else, but
nothing lias offered itself so far. The
people here are anxious for tne to
stay ,md while there are, of course,
some features of my present situation
that I do not altogether care for, I
presume that is true of almost any
place, and 1 slinll not complain.
There are several hundred of us
here, nil engaged for various periods.
Many of the men here have been with
r' i ,V T- l
“The People Here Are Anxious for Me
to Stay."
the same institution for years nnd
show no signs of leaving so you must
Know that a position here is, in a
measure, permanent.
I got inv new fall suit the day 1
went to work for my present employ
ers It is a stripe and I fear you would
think It a little too loud, but is the pre
vailing style where I am and they in
sist upon your being dressed in the
style here. It lPnds the employes of
the Institution a certain distinction
that is at times highly valuable to our
employers, i am, as you cautioned
me to be when I left the old home,
careful of my clothes and I shall prob
ably not have another suit this win
ter. It Is not expensive living here.
The institution operates « boarding
house and our meals, while plain, are
sufficient and do not cost much. Our
laundry is done here also, so that alto
get her I shall probably live as cheaply
as I could anywhere Nothing has
been said to me yet about salary but
I suppose I will get that in time.
I know you will be pleased to know
that 1 am keeping good hours. The
nature of our engagements here is
such that we must be in lied early an 1
rise early. I am In bed at nine o'clock
every night and rise at six o'clock
every morning. I have left off drink
ing entirely as it would not be toler
ated for a minute by the management,
and they discourage the use of to
bacco as far as possible.
I intended to come and see you
about Thanksgiving but I do not see
how I shall be able to get away. The
management will not hear of me go
ing a: this time so I will have to give
up my Intended visit. I shall think
of you. and at my Thanksgiving din
ner I know I shall wish devoutly that
I were back with you again.
1 do not rememner to have told you
how I came Into my present situation.
You know, my funds were at low ebb
when i came here and 1 resolved to
take anything that offered. In doing
a little moving of household goods
early on- ! slipped while car
rying some stuff out of a back win
dow and the lady in whose house i
was doing the moving, finding me with
a broken leg under the window, in
sisted upon my coming here, where
I could have steady employment ar. i
the treatment that I needed. I have
become so attached to the place an!
they look after us so carefully that It
is hard to break away from the sur
roundings. 'Indeed, several who have
left before their terms of service ex
pire!, have come back to finish out
their terms and in every case have
taken another term of service.
You spoke of sending me some
clothes, but as I told you, I think I
have all 1 shall be able to wear this
winter. My room is small and there
Is no clothes-press, so they would
only be in the way. The suit I have
was made for me by our tailor here.
His s:otk of goods was limited, so I
took the best pattern I could get, but
1 am sure 1 look as well dressed as
any one here.
About my work: I haTe gone In for
architecture a little and new I am
making plans for an exit from our
mala dormitory. If I am successful
In getting these plans matured I shall
prcbably not finish my work here, as
it will give me the opportunity l have
sought to go elsewhere and begin
werk for myself again.
Address me when you write. No
333, Overtheroad My number is 333,
and be sure to address me so. in order
that the letter does not miscarry
As ever.

drowsy with the feeling of a perpetual

a golden summer atmosphere were
over all. There was a faint droning '

There are few things worth striving
tor In this world. Peace alone Is
worth the struggle. The peace which,
to some degree, may be in this life is
nearer idealization in these old Fran
ciscan missions among the olive lands
of California than anywhere else. The
peace there cannot be put into words.
It is in the air, and it is like the

thick in the crooked paths, the solemn
old mission overlooks all, and one al

a silvery voice ring out. Old Spicca

sweet voice must sing to him and
drown the voice of misery that would
come up in his old hardened heart.
Her bright face must be before him to j
shut out the dark scenes that age, j
