out the county Is expected to do a big
"good turn" for his mother. Chief
Brockway makes the following sug

floor of Gill's book store. In addition
to signing up recruits every boy will
be given a copy of "Boy's Life." the
offioial publication of the Boy Scouts
and a special price will be made to
all subscribing for the magazine.
Automobile owners will welcome the
news that Thursday will be commun
ity good turn- day, when scouts will
be expected to pick up all the pieces
of glass in the streets of their neigh
borhood, inspecting and reporting to
the health bureau unsanitay places,
and doing other similar tasks.
A ecout rally will ba the chief event
of Friday, the gathering to be held
at S o'clock in the auditorium of the
Lincoln high school with Frank
Branch Riley as the principal speaker.
Good turns for the city will be per
formed Saturday, when . scouts sta
tioned in their own neighborhoods
and in the down-town sections will
perform some civic service, helping
children and aged people on and off of
cars and across crowded streets, car
rying bundles or assisting in some
ger.eral civic enterprise.
make It surpass the Washington mon
ument and the Lincoln memorial. The
Washington monument is an obelisk
S5S feet, and was completed In 1884,
at a total cost of $1,200,000. The Lin
coln memorial, only recently finished,
cost $3,000,000.
The great American hog Is blamed
for everything, even the character of
dyes used by the ladies in coloring
their "pink knickers."
- Senator Sherman of Illinois made
that plain in a speech to the senate.
"Several years ago," said the sena
tor. "American pork products were
barred from Denmark because a resi
dent of that country became ill after
eating some ham that came from this
oountry. .
"The American minister to Den
mark went to the home of the man
and gained admittance to his kitchen.
He was shown the kettle in which the
meat had been cooked and found
scum on the side. He scraped otf
some of the deposit and had it ana
lyzed by a prominent chemist, who
said it was a dye that was deleterious
to the health if taken Internally.
"It was found that the kettle had
been used as a dye pot. . Some of the
ladies' of the household had been re
fublshlng their wardirobe with spring
colors. I forbear to tell the exact
character of the wardrobe, but sena
tors with more or less vivid Imagina
tions no doubt will have no difficulty
in guessing. The great American hog
finally was exonerated from blame.
A new syrup made from sweet po
tatoes pot only possesses a splendid
flavor, but is well adapted for table
use, and it is quite likely will result
in the development of a new sugar
industry in the south, according to J.
Ralston Cargill. a Georgia syrup
manufacturer, who has been in Wash
ington helping southern senators and
representatives get an item of 20,000
Into the agricultural appropriation
bill for a syrup experiment station in
Georgia. A party of government
scientists. Including T. J. Price, en
gineer in charge of development
work; Dr. H. C. Goare, chemist, who
developed the new sweet potato syrup,
and J. O. Ray. a mechanical engineer.
are now seeking a location for an ex
perimental laboratory.
Representative Charles R. Crisp,
who has been interested In the de
velopment of the sweet potato orop
as a commercial possibility the past
several years, succeeded In ..having
congress appropriate J7500 about a
year ago for experimental purposes.
Already the experiments have pro
gressed so far as to make certain that
new commercial possibilities are
ahead for Georgia potato growers.
According to CarglU, 56 pounds of
sweet potatoes will yield about two
gallons of syrup of ordinary con
sistency. In addition to three pounds
of dry pulp containing 17 per cent of
protein, and possessing a high value
as dairy feed. In producing the new
syrup the potatoes are heated in wa
ter at 160 degrees for three hours,
which causes all of the cells to break
down, releasing the sugar 'contents.
The juice is then pressed out, filtered
and evaporated, the same as any other
commercial syrup. Cargill says the
syrup is three times sweeter than
corn syrup, but no figures concerning
the cost of its production are available.

Special Election for Representative in Ninth California District to
Fill Vacancy to Be Held February 15.
WASHINGTON. Fek. 6. There
will be a special election for
congress in the ninth California
district February 15. and Representa
tive Charles H. Randall of Los An
geles, who was completely snowed
under last November by Van de
Water, is again a candidate for re
election. The special election was made nec
essary because of the acidental
death of Van de Water not long after
his vlstory at the polls as the repub
lican nominee.
Randall is distinguished as the
only congressman elected on the pro
hibition ticket. He is now making
a canvass on the "dry issue" and it
is understood that he is to have the
aid of several "dry" speakers to ar
rive from the east.
Opposed to the prohibition candi
date is Major Lineberger, of Long
-war. Randall has democratic lean
tlngulshed for services in the late
Beach, a lifelong republican, dis
ings, although now professing a dis
position to support "the Harding
policies" whatever they may be.
After his repudiation by a plural
ity of some 30,000 voters In his dis
trict last November, Randall is show
ing no little "nerve" to run again on
any ticket or pretenses.
Senator Reed Smoot, in consequence
of his Mormon training, uses no stim
ulants no tobacco, alcohol, coffee
or tea. No one who has ever under
taken to go through life without the
use of coffee or tea has any Idea of
the petty annoyances that such ab
stinence entails. A man can quit
drinking malt, vinous or spirituous
liquors and his friends merely re
mark: "On the wagon, eh?" and let it go
at that. They don't ask why he quit,
and usually do not insist on him
drinking, regardless of what may be
the prevailing notion to the con-
tary. Anybody knows that when a.
man quits drinktn he does so be-I
cause he does not want to take all J
the natural finish off his insldes and i
die ahead of schedule, or have a be- I
fuddled brain, such as one can seel
on the charts in any doctor's office. ,
But with a man who doe3 not drink
coffee or tea it is different. Every
body desires to know why. Where
ever Smoot goes to dine, people ask:
"Do you find that coffee makes you
Nervous?" Don't you drink It for
breakfast even?" Did you ever try
that Battle Creek substitute for cof
fee T' "Does it keep you awake?" And.
oh. a great many more. Then some
woman is certain to say: "Hercy, I've
taken a- cup of coffee at every meal
since I can. remember, and I don't J
think it hurts me a bit." j
Of late years, in order to avoid a j
scene. Smoot usually takes a cup of
coffee when It is offered to him, but
does not drink It. But this avails
mm nine, sooner or latter his host
ess inquires:
-uo you rind your coffee too
strong?" or, "Did you get cream and
sugar 7"
Then the truth leaks out and the
questions begin.
Even in a restaurant the coffee
proposition is one of life's little irri
tations in Smoot's ease. Every waiter
assumes mat everybody drinks cof-
fee. The waiter always says: "Will
you have your coffee now or later?"
even though nothing has been said
about coffee at all. Senator Smoot
sometimes wisnes the "dry" move
ment would be amended to include
coffee. .
President-Elect Harding may ba
joined in Florida by one of his most
intimate senatorial friends, James E.
Watson of Indiana, who is slowly
recovering rrom a severe nervous
breakdown. Senator Watson has been
absent from the capital through
out the present session, and is only
well enough now to begin to take
oocaaional drives in fine weather.
In another three weeks his phy
sicians hope to be able to permit him
to travel, and a journey of recupera
tion to the sunny south in contem
plated. Mr. Harding is exceedingly
fond of his long-time Hoosier col
league. In Marion, the day before
election, Mrs. Harding said to the
writer: "We a consider the defeat of
'Jim' Watson tomorrow the equiva
lent of a deep personal lo&s."
The call for adventure is luring the
women of the national woman's party.
"What are you going to do next?" is
the question repeatedly asked the
militant suffragists who picketed and
went to prison for the cause of suf
frage, although future activities will
not be decided until the national con
vention scheduled to open here Feb
ruary 15.

or any other cause.
The tearoom has become the ren
dezvous of elements in Washington
who are interested in "causes." Vis
itors from all over the country and
from foreign lands drop in there daily

and true enforcement of prohibition
are among the matters suggested for
consideration.

Senator Penrose is endangering his
health by overwork, according to
Mayor Moore of Philadelphia.
After a conference with the senator
in Washington the mayor said:
TThe senator looks to be in rugged
health compared with what he was a
few months ago. I was surprised to
hear that he had just come from the
floor of the senate. He is receiving
long lists of callers every day, and is
hard at work. But if he keeps up the
strain of receiving so many callers
every day and attending to so much
business in person he Will be in bed
again. None of us wants to see that.
He should let up a bit." -
Sinclair Lewis, author'of the novel.
"Main Street," is wintering in Wash
ington, as the editor of his hero-town
might say. The gray-bearded intel
lectuals at the Cosmos club, where
Mr, Lewis passes a good deal of time,
are surprised to find him an extreme
ly youthful person of 35 with red
bair and a boyish temperament.
The creator of "Main Street" comes
from Sauk Center, Minn., but that
thriving northwestern community, he
avers, Is not the original of Gopher
Prairie. Mr. Lewis is in receipt of a
considerable correspondence from per
sons who take issue with his concep
tion of small-town life. Yale, from
which the author was graduated in
ot, is proud or being able to add a
new "best-seller" to its galaxy of
celebrated scribes.
One of the most stirring JournexS'of
exploration ever undertaken by an
American is projected by Charles
Merz, a young Yale man who was an
assistant to Colonel House at the
peace conference. Mr. Merz. is sailing
for h,gypt, with a companion, George
French Porter, of Chicago, formerly
prominent in the progressive party
movement. At Eeyrut, on the north
ern edge of Palestine, they will pick
up. an American high-powered "fliv
ver," which has been sent ahead, spe
cially equipped for deseVt and moun
tain travel.
The equipment Includes an extra
large tank for gasoline. 16 tires and
an outfit of canvas strips with which
the travelers plan to strew a path,
when necessary, over impassable
sands. Their itinerary comprises
Arabia, Armenia,, Mesopotamia,
Turkey and India. Mr. Merz Is an
Ohioan and an associate editor of the
New Republio. He is 27 years old.
Soviet Leaders Propose Do-
' mestic Emancipation.
Male Member of Congress Offers
' Strenuous Objection.
LONDON, Feb. 5. Emancipation of
wdmen from domestic work is
going a little too far even for the
soviet leaders of Russia. An attempt
to commit the recent soviet congress
there to such a principle developed
a bumorous incident, as told by the
Moscow wireless.
-Madame Kollontal, a well-known
bolshevist leader, told the congress:
"Women must be liberated from the
mass of unproductive labor which they
ruinu in tneir domestic surroundings.
Thus the enormous amount of work
ing energy will be available. I regret
to say that old prejudices are still
strong among us." 1
A male member of the congress.
Ukhnevitch, jumped to his feet with
an objection. "I am in favor of the
emancipation of women, but not of
all," he declared. "If my wife leaves
me, I shall throw up my work.' My
wife must stay at home."
The congress received this salll
with roars of laughter. I

She was never more Hanov than
when she had the House full of

Husband Gets Many Raps.
The Husband of this Woman had
no liking for Violet Teas or after
noon Whist Orgie. When his Wife
was tearing open the street with one
of her Social Events, he preferred
tc stay Down Town and get a little
Snack rather than Face the Music.
He felt more at ease- with an Egg
Sandwich in a One-Armed Cafeteria
than he did while partaking of Briek
lee Cream and listening to Stories
about the Pasror.
He -got many Raps because of his
evident Desire to Duck on the Fes
tivities. Very often his wife would
give him an awful Panning for his
Failure to Show Up. She would ask
h:m why be oould not be like Mr.
So-and-So, who always helped his
Wife Juggle the Tea, and who went
fnom one Woman to another with
neat little Compliments.
The Husband replied that if he had
to be the same as Mr. So-and-So in
order to make himself a Parlor
Favorite, he would rather go and
make a Hole In the River.
In his opinion, the Husband that
she had set up a Shining Example
was a feather-brained Gussie, wha
ought to be Drummed Out of the
Community. He said he bad no
Use for a Married Man big enough
to- pull a - Dray who chatted about
Dress Goods. If she wanted, that
kind of an Article around the House
she had better pull the Rope and
ack for a Transfer.
She came back by saying. that she
would just as soon see a Gentleman
making himself agreeable to a Covey
of Refined Ladies as to see him off in
Club with a lot of Passenger
Agents and Horse Breeders, pulling
for Table Stakes and a Black Bottle
hid under the Table.
Furthermore, she thought things
had come to a Pretty Pass when a
Husband would sneak in the Back
Way and crawl upstairs to avoid
meeting his- . wife's Guests. She
nagged him until he decided that he
would go in for her kind of Recrea
tion Just to Keep " Peace in the
Family.
Then He Comes Home Early.
One day when the Street in front
of his House was jammed with
Limousines and chummy Roadsters
and there was a strip of Red Carpet
trailed down the Front Stoop, Just
to give the Place a Tone, he came
Home early and got into his long
tailed Effect. This Man despised
himself whenever he was in Minis
terial togs. He always was feeling
for the Side Pockets. When he
caught a Glimpse of himself in the
Mirror, he realized that he was a
Ringer for the Neat Artist who
ccmes'out in the Vaudeville Show
to imitate the Birds and Beasts of
the Forest.
But it was up to him to please the
Wuff, so he got into'his English
Shroud and wrestled with- the'Four-in-Hand
and' gummed -hie hair down
and rubbed a little Scent on himself
so as to be as Offensive as possible.

He gave ery nine, the pigh-up

Woman always likes to Exhibit her

This Husband was set on making
a full Afternoon of it, after going to

and having his Hair cut.
He was there to . help Entertain
the Guests if it was In him
So he slowly circulated about the
Room, looking for some one who

He said that if only he was Foot

Then he started in to tell her how

She became Flushed' and said it

UNGLE SAM'S NEW TREASURER
i COUNTS NATION'S VAST WEALTH
Storage Vaults, of Massive Concrete and Steel Construction, Opened
for First Time in Twelve Years.
W ASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 5.- A
complete eount of the govern
ment's cash has just been
made for the first time in 1J years.
The total approximated SJ3.500.000,
000 and included all cash and secur
ities held as reserves against cur
renicy outstanding.
The count was made by a special
committee of three, assisted by eight
accountants and by 15 laborers who
were used to move around the heavy
sacks of irold and silver. The men
delved into great vaults in the treas
ury building and took stock of gold,
silver and paper money and eecuri
ties, many of which had not seen the
lierht of dav since ehortly after Will
lam Howard Taft was inaugurated
president and a new treasurer of Che
United States appointed in laua.
The accountants in entering "the
vaults passed grim-vissaged guards
who day and night "sit on the lid
to prevent any possible attempts at
an unauthorized raid on the treasury.
The vaults themselves are supposed
to be burglar proof and are of mas
sive concrete and steel construction.
The storage sections are kept under
seal and this was the first time that
some of them had been opened In 12
years, for when John Burke became
treasurer after President Wilson was
first inaugurated he accepted the
count of cash in the storage sections
v?hlch had not been opened since tne
previous count in 1909.
Few SIOOO Bills in Circulation.
The accountants handled money of
every possible aenominauon irum
the lowly copper to S10.000 bills.
Many of the bills, particularly those
f the large denominations, ouch as
JjOSO. were In sheetB of four each
and held aa reserve against currency
of smaller denominations in circula
tion. Thousand-dollar bills In circu
lation are few and each bank In the
country is kept supplied by the treas
ury with a list of them with their
numbers, so that if perchance any
are extracted from the -treasury il
legally the holder will have extreme
difficulty in realizing on them.
The count just finished was made
necessary by the retirement of John
Burke as treasurer and was complet
ed In the remarkably short time of
three weeks through the use of elec
tric counting machines. Loose coins
passed through these machines in
stead of being counted by hand, as
was necessary in the olden days. Pa
per currency was counted by the
piece, hut stored coins and currency
were counted by the sack or package
in cases where the wrappings were
unbroken and the .seal on each In
tact. -
The main supply of the govern
ment's money is stored in two large
vaults, but there are a number of
smaller ones In the various divisions
of the department as well as in the
cash rooms where cash payments are
made by the government. ,-
Gold Countci by Wright.' '. '
Gold coins stored in the -vaults
were counted by weight. The gold
is kept In sacks, sealed with the
treasurer's wax seal, and containing I
$5000 each, weighing about IS pounds
and 7 ounces. First one sack was
weighed and then the others were
examined. If both the seal and
covering were found intact they were
weia-hed aerainst the first or test
sack and If the result was the same
were passed and counted. However,
If a seal was broken or the sack torn
or there was appreciable difference
in weight the contents were connted
by the piece.
Standard silver dollars were count
ed in the same way as the gold coin.
They ara stored In sacks containing
1000 and weighing about 60 pounds.
Work on the silver coin was lessened,
officials said, by the government's
melting 100,000,000 silver dollars
under the Pittman act for sale to the
British government to relieve the
silver famine in India during the war.
Paper money is stored in paper
packages making a cube of about IVt
inches each way aifd containing 4000
notes. On each package is stamped
the amount and the denomination of
the notes Inclosed. A wax seal is
attached. Except where a broken
seal or package necessitated an ac
tual count of the contents the paper
in the vaults was counted by the
package.
Sealed packages of paper money
are accepted from the bureau of en
graving and printing as correct when
the wrappings are intact because the
Issue division of the treasury main
tains an office In the bureau and in
reality counts all the paper money
before It leaves the bureau.
Coins of smaller denominations-
quarters, dimes, nickels and coppers
stored in sacks were counted in the
same manner as the silver and gold,
by taking the weight" of a test sack
for each denomination and weighing
the other sacks against It.
Upon completion of the count the
storage compartments of the vaults
were sealed with the seal of the ppe-
cial committee and a receipt was
given to Mr. Burke, the retiring
treasurer, by Guy F. Allen, his suc
cessor for the cash and securities of
the government held; in the treasury.
When he signed the receipts the acting-treasurer
became personally re
sponsible for the safekeeping of all
the cash and securities in the
hulldiner. ..
The new-treasurer was represented
on the special counting committee by
F. E. Reppert, vault clerk of the
cash division of the treasurer's office.
C. N. McGroaty. chief pf the division
of loans and currency, was chairman
of the committee and with John
Moon, chief of the coupon surrender
section of that division, represented
the secretary of the treasury.
