"I am one of those who rejoiced greatly

Thursday shook the pennies from her
bank, and when they were counted It
waa found she had enough to buy two
war-savings stamps, with at few left
over. The "penny fund" from which
the stamps were purchased was started
two years sgo by one of the child's
relatives, who has since died, but ithe
little girl has steadfastly followed the
example of thrift feet for her and has
saved every penny coming her way.
The local war-savinrs committee has
had designs drawn for a number of at
tractive posters which will be printed
and distributed during the course of
the campaign.
An extra supply of stamps has been
ordered to care for the rush of sales
that is expected to follow the house-to-house
campaign March 19, SO, 21,

ty Court.
Mr. Marchand. who was a resident of
New Tork In his declining years. Is said
to be the man who first painted one of
Barnum's big elephants a snowy wffite
and assisted the late circus man to his
fame as a showman. Mr. Marchand was
an Inventor. .
A peculiar coincidence In the signing
of his last will was brought to light
with the court proceedings yesterday.
Both Mr. Marchand and his widow, who
survives him. wrote out their last wills
on the same day.
By accident Mr. Marchand signed the
will which was meant for his wife, and
his wife's signature was attached to his
own will. Despite this error, which ap
parently was nothing more than an
oversight. Judge Taswell allowed the
estate to be admitted to probate with
out any legal tangles.
The proprietors of each of the 66 ho
tels. . rooming-houses and lodging
houses which have fallen under the
ban as a result of Mayor Baker's In
vestigation to determine the character
of the places and proprietors will be
given a hearing before the City Coun
cil. This was decided by the council yes
terday, when Mayor Baker, at an In
formal session, announced that out of
the 450 places which have applied for
licenses under the new ordinance
passed recently to safeguard soldiers.
66 have been found, on investigation,
to be places that should not be tol
erated. In each case careful Investi
gation has been made and evidence
found showing that immoral women or
bootleggers have been permitted to fre
quent the places. ' Each of the 66, It is
said, has a court and police record. -
Mayor Baker Informed the council
that he does not want to o any of the
proprietors any injustice and wishes to
give each an opportunity to be heard
before the council takes final action.
Also he wants the police to tell the
council members what they know and
what the police court records show.
The proprietors will be taken In
groups and will be heard oy the coun
cil each day until the list is completed.
The first hearing will be Tuesday. Tne
council will sit behind closed doors
and Mayor Baker says the names of
the 66 places will not be made public
until the hearings are completed and
the cases finally decided.

"More magazines for soldiers" is the
plea of the committee In charge of the
work of collecting and sending reading
matter to the men In the various
branches of the service. The number
of troops in the field is increasing every
day and the consequent demand for
magazines is becoming greater.
Next Tuesday is Soldiers' day an over
the country, and pupils are asked to
bring one magazine apiece to scnool
with them. Others are asked to bring
their contributions to the collection
desks at the various city libraries.
