VERY New Year's
Eve the old lady
came. Hoskins had
been watching her
now for several
about the same
time, eleven or
twelve, she would
come and take her stand in the mid
dle of the bridge looking expectantly
down the river. As the "Amelia," an
old barge engaged in the Indian trade
and scheduled to arrive annually In
London on January 1, sailed up the
river, she became violently agitated.
When It passed directly under her, she
shouted loudly ID a crooked, hoarse
voice, and toss J u purse down to a
certain snllor on the deck who greet
ed her with wild cheers. She would
watch the old boat glide easily up
the river till it was out of sight. Then
quietly she turned toward the south
and walked away.
Now Hoskins was a conscientious
thief. It was not his policy to rob
old women ol
their purses. Th(
opulent old men
of Hyde Park
and the younp
men, too, were hit
game. But latelj

back to the grind with house and sen

expected to keep them working at top
speed until the close of. the present
session March 4.
The Muscle Shoals problem, vex

the senate, which also faces a show
down on the question of sustaining

salaries bill and is pledged before the
windup of the session to take action
: on the Isle of Pines treaty.
On the house side appropriation bills
will continue to have priority, with
leaders planning also to dispose of
the McFadden bank bill and perhaps
i the rivers and harbors authorization.
The house already has sent three
of the dozen annual supply bills to
the senate. A fourth the treasury-
postoffice measure, carrying more
than three-quarters of a billion dol
lars and Incidentally the largest peace
time appropriation bill In congression
al history will be disposed of this
week, clearing the way for the army
supply bill, which next will have right
With less than ten weeks remaining
before congress must adjourn sine die,
leaders recognize the necessity of
speeding action on these proposals,
and it is expected that the next few
weeks will see several of them on
their way to the president.
