"We placed a small advertisement with you in the issue of the 7th inst., asking for an elder sister' to be with our daughter for the summer.

"We have had so many replies that it would be impossible to try and answer them all.

THOUSAND people killed by vehicles in the streets of New York in a year!" a subscriber exclaims. "The remedy is simple. Let every driver of a vehicle-street car, truck, or automobile-be compelled to slow down to three miles an hour at every near crossing and keep that speed till he passes the far crossing of every street, no matter what the traffic conditions-and the thing is half done. Let pedestrians strictly avoid jay-walking-and it is complete. As it is now, automobiles whizz across every side street at any speed they please, whether people are crossing or not. Let a few offenders, of either class, auto-drivers or walkers, get jail sentences for violating these provisions and you will have a great diminution of accidents." Cops who have the job of keeping the traffic moving might not wholly approve of this three-mile idea.

"When it comes to the corruptions of a baseball umpire," says Uncle Henry in "Colliers," "there's where the splendid rage of an oppressed people breaks forth. I've seen the air so full of pop bottles that they looked like a glass roof. Lots of people think baseball an easy game, but I don't know of anything that's got a more subtle technique. Unless you catch the bottle by the neck, an' put a quick wrist snap into the throw, it won't go any distance at all. . . . I don't know any other sport where 50,000 can take part, an' a leadin' part at that:

""Why didn'cha make 'im bunt? You're a swell manager, yes, you are!' "Pass 'im, stoopid! Pass 'im!'

ciation as an ideal, Mr. Shaw said at a recent lecture: "His pronunciation goes all over the world unchallenged-even in America. I would suggest that a phonograph record be made with these words attached: "This is the way ForbesRobertson speaks. Speak the same way and your social position will never be challenged.'"

Mr. Shaw followed up this compliment by complaining of the great difficulty of getting actors to speak as he wanted them to speak, and said it should be possible for an author to write a scrip in English that conveys to the actor as much as a scrip by Wagner conveys to a musician. "I do not want actors and actresses to understand my plays," Mr.

BY THE WAY (Continued)


Shaw continued. "That is not necessary. If they will only pronounce the correct sounds I can guarantee the result."

We call to the attention of Government engineers a suggestion which came to us in a recent letter:

"If it is true that all typhoons originate at the Island of Yap in the manner described by Commander McIntosh in your issue of September 27, it ought to be a simple matter to banish this particular form of destruction from the Orient. A system of powerful fans, sufficient to keep the air over the island in constant motion during such periods as would ordinarily breed typhoons, should do the trick; or a system of pumps and nozzles arranged to keep the air cool by spraying sea water over the whole island. It would seem to be up to the Government of Japan to attempt such an experiment, and to the other maritime nations to help bear the cost. If successful, the installation should more than pay for itself in a single season."

Why do our English friends keep to the left while driving, and keep to the right while walking? The anomaly has apparently attracted their attention, and the authorities seem to be trying to make the "rule of the road" uniform. A correspondent of the London "Sphere" thus upholds the old custom:

"The new order, 'Walk to the Left,' which for some time has decorated the London sidewalks, is contrary to custom. As far as I can see, the tendency to walk on the right is general, and it is probably based firmly upon the necessary customs of a troubled past. In rough times, when strangers encountered on the road, they were wary. Each kept to the right, keeping his left arm with its shield toward the actual or possible enemy, while his right arm was free to swing sword or hurl spear. That, I believe, is the simple explanation of why foot passengers bear to the right, and why the new rule is generally disregarded."

It is related that the director of a certain famous museum was once showing a distinguished woman some of the priceless treasures of which he is the custodian. For a long time, however, it seemed that nothing interested her very much. Then suddenly the director noticed a change in her; her face lighted up and she leaned forward.

"What is it, madam?" asked the director, gratified at this tardy sign of awakening appreciation. "Do not hesitate to ask if there is anything you would like to know."

"That is awfully good of you!" exclaimed the woman. "I wish you would tell me what brand of polish you use on those iron ventilators that are let into the floor. We have the same sort of thing in my house, but my servants never get them to shine half so brilliantly."

the Right Way

"Washes" and Polishes-

(1) Loosens clinging par-

(2) Washes them away.

Sensible in Theory Colgate's Ribbon Dental Cream cleanses without disturbing Nature's balance. Avoid dentifrices that are strongly alkaline or appreciably acid.

Correct in Practice Authorities agree that a dentifrice should do only one thing-clean teeth thoroughly. Colgate's does this better than any other dentifrice. This Christmas put a cheery red tube of Ribbon Dental Cream in every Christmas stocking.
