The progresslvo Mr. Newton Bull, or
"Newt" Bull, as ho Is more familiarly
blown, Is really tho author of the organi

if rrtnrHlnD fl.prMnrv nnd chairman of
the Hard Questions' Committee. "Newt"
Bull was tho first Pine Notch pouitry
jnan and Indian Runner duck specialist
to break away from local traditions and
J'sell fancy select eggs by parcel post and
His ruin was predicted early In the

When she 'was notified that It was a pair

pressed lips, "Well, I'll name Vem Robert."
"It can't bo done," said her husband,
Zedeklah Bull, one of the keenest grass
farmers In South Jersey.
"It Is done," she snapped back at him.
"We will call the oldest Rob and the
youngest Bob." And that's all there wob

No, by Jlrnmlny, we'll get down to
that Pine Notch Board of Poilltry Trade
and stick to It. "Newt" Bull had worked
up a very promising fresh selected fancy
sga trade by parcel post and express,
asking no man for advice or assistance
and studying the thing out according to
all the new rules of scientific poultry pro
duction, when along came an order for
two down boneless eggs. The name and
address was typewritten And a money
order for tl enclosed. The order was very
ree ana urter, to wit: "Please send, ex

Newt Bull was stumped and admitted it

order was typewritten and looked as sane

olng in the pickle line at this time. Rob
and Bob were persuaded to call a meet
In;, provided Nowt would furnish elder
and doughnuts as refreshments. This
arranged and . Mrs. Newt started
tight In making doughnuts.
The twins did nnt ifIva tlnv Inkttnc nt
Wiat was coming off, but when they
mentioned that Mrs. Newt Bull's dough
wts would be supplied In unstinted
Wmdance, no other argument was
needed. Even Rudolph. Mops, the atpre
PeTi showed up. notwithstanding his

Twenty-one men more or less Interested

went as If they were chained by the con

those doughnuts remained In, prospect
they'd listen to Newt Bull's new-fangled

So Newt Bull went to It with a brand of
SUnuence that simply swept his auditors
ore their feet. He gave these farmers
facts and ngures bn selling eggs and
broilers, roasters, frlcasses and Just fowl
that inrtdft their eyes bulge out nnd
threw Rudolph Mops Into a speechless
rag. When ho had finished he drew up
a charter and set of by-laws that 'was

posed tho name of his bitterest enemy,
and only Indian Runner duck rival, Olney
Gall, as president of the club, and the
election was carried with a shout. Fol

the hard questions committee.
All was now complete and sewed'up,
but no luentlon had been made of the
puztllng order for two dozen boneless
eggs. In n sudden flash of Inspiration
Newt Bull decided to table this matter
till the next biweekly meeting of the
bnaid. Meantime, ha would seek tho ad

the riddle safe In hand, he would make
a profound Impression upon tho members
of the Pino Notch Board of Poultry Trade
In his capacity as chairman of the hard

Costcllo represents tho 41st Ward. It is his plnn to run tho Frnnkford elevated road beyond Bridgo street,
the limit of population in tho Northeast The Finnnce Committee of Councils, of which ho is a membor, re
ported out an ordinance providing for tho construction of n northeast elevated road to Rhawn street,
Rhawn street is a little more than thrco miles beyond Bridgo street. The territory which lies between
Bridgo and Rhawn Btrcots id sparsely settled country of farms and unused land and woods. Costello has
a real estate offlco at 6915 Torresdale avenue, beyond Bridgo street, nnd in that territory between it and
Rhawn street.
Continued from Inge Ons
phla to authorlzo by their voto an In
crease In tho city's Indebtedness to tho
extent of $6,000,000 for tho construction
of only certain subway and elevated
structures, with the location thereof spe
cified In each Instance In a manner which
would make the economical and satis
factory operation thereof Impracticable;
nn ordinance, worded In a manner which
may Invite litigation and which may ralso
very gravo legal doubts as to the validity
of an election held In pursuanco thereof,
there Is gravo danger of this ordinance
being passed by Councils In Its present
form, which would tie up tho $0,000,000
authorized so as to prevent Its use for
the establishment of nny proper or satis
factory transit facilities In Philadelphia.
"Under these conditions, ns I have
stated. It Is now up to the citizens and
organizations of Philadelphia to act for
themselves In their own Interests. They
should lose no tfmo In doing so.
"In order to place the matter squarely
In the hands of a thoroughly representa
tive body of citizens for lmmedlato ac
tion, I shall forthwith appoint tho com
mltteo as authorized at a public mass
meeting of the citizens of Philadelphia
held in the Academy of Music on Thurs
day evening, January 14, 1915.
"These resolutions not only Indorsed the
plan for transit development as recom
mended by tho Department of City
Transit, but prescribed as follows;
"Resolved, That Director Taylor be and
Is hereby authorized nnd empowered by
the citizens of Philadelphia here assem
bled, to appoint a committee of not more
than 1000 citizens of Philadelphia, repre
sentative of every Interest nnd of every
district In this city. If he deems It neces
sary, to aid the Department of City
Transit in securing each and every action
which may be 'required In furthering the
terms of these resolutions and In estab
lishing adequate rapid transit facilities In
Philadelphia, which committee shall havo
power to appoint and act through sub
committees, and to adopt any and all
rules nnd regulations which may be
deemed proper."
North and South Philadelphia
Realize They Have Been
Duped in Ordinance.
"I now warn tho people of North and
South Philadelphia that the passaoo of
the ordinance reported by the Finance
Committee will-defeat tho construction of
the Oroad street aubway." Statement by
Director Taylor.
Residents of fforth and South Philadel
phia today Joined other sections of tho
city In. the revolt against the, substitute
transit -plan reported to Councils by the
Finance Committee Thursday, At first
appealed by Councils' declaration that
the Finance Committee ordinances pro
vided even better- transit facilities for
these two sections than did the Taylor
program. North Philadelphia and South
Philadelphia Immediately did not Join In,
the wave of protest against Councils
Today the residents of these two ex
treme ends of the city awoke from the
"fool'B paradise" Into which they were
led by CounpHs' representations. Stripped
of its- Intricacies, the plan embodied In
the counellmanlo ordinance, they now
aay, la nothing but a, bold deception, an
attempt to offer them a "Joker" plan
"Just a good" Instead of that for which
they have fought and which they need.
The declaration of Director Taylor. "I
now warn the people of North and South
Philadelphia' tnat" the passage of the pr
dlnance will defeat construction of the
Broad street subway," struck home. The
trickery under the guise of better plan
was discovered. South Philadelphia and
North Philadelphia Joined In the clty
wlde demand oa Council to accept the
Taylor transit piaa na no otnar
j '-Tr? -"---;"" ,,,.,
two divergent plans that the Finance
Committee ordinance holds forth no hope
for the abolition of tho confiscatory 8-ccnt
excHango ticket and tho establishment of
a universal free transfer system and a
straight E-ccnt faro to all parts of Phila
delphia. -Further, tho Flnanco Committee ordi
nance mnkes r.o provision for turning tho
cars at City Hall or for running tho trains
from four tn.cks on North Broad street
Into double tracks on South Broad street.
For this reason -alone Director Taylor's
iplan makes elenr tho engineering neces
sity of a business delivery loop.
The Finnnce Committee plan would dis
charge tho passengers' collected, at 20 sta
tions along Broad street at two stations
In the very centre of tho city Instead of
distributing them nt a number of sta
tions along the line of tho delivery loop.
Returning nfter business hours, pas
congers for tho 2$ stations would be
forced to congregate at these two stations
and crowd Into tho trains there, Instead
of being allowed to reach tho trains at a
point near their places of employment.
Business associations from both the
northern and southern parts of tho cltj
now are planning to take part In tho town
meeting next Thursday night nnd pro
test against the action of Councils.
It was decided today to hold
the meeting at the Bingham House,
11th and Market streets. Tho meet
ing was called last night by the
Transportation Committee of tho United
Business Men's Association. All afllltatcd
as well as unaflliated associations have
been Invited to Join In the movement to

"In other words, start right when you
are young, and when you are old you
will not bemOnn the fact that you have
not lived right. Start rlghUtnd yoU will
serve dod. The time to tnrt right Is
then you are young. Most Christians
have become Christians before they were
tt years old. In an audience of 1000 a
preacher asked them when they had ac
cepted Christ, and he found that out of
that thousand S93 had becomo Christians
before they wero 20 years of age.
"I was out In a brickyard several years
ago nnd saw them making brick. They
would put the clay in a big machine
something like a huge sausage grinder
nnd grind it up fine, nnd then spfend It
out on a big platform and smooth It out
Just tho thickness of the brick, and then
n man would turn a big wheel nnd tho
knives would cut up the clay! the fellows
would put tho pioces In wagons with
shelves nnd carry them to the kiln nnd
burn them.
"I picked up some of the clay beforo It
went to tho grinder and I could mold It
nny way I wanted to. I picked up one
of tho bricks after It came out of tho
grinder and I could still mold It. I picked
up somo clay that had laid In tho sun
for several days, and by trying hard I
could stilt bend It, but when I picked up
a brick nfter It hnd come out of the kiln,
try as hard as I might, I could not even
dent It. It wns burned hard and It would
ahvayB remain that way.
"Boys and girls aro like thnt clay.
When they nro young God can mold them
to do Ills way or the devil can mold
them to do his way, but after they aro
old It Is hard to chango them.
"It Is hard to chango a habit. If you
don't think so some of you boys Just
try It. Try to get up early every morn
ing nnd wash your face without being
told and seo If It Isn't hard.
"Everybody wants to live a pleasant
llfo and thcro Is no life ns pleasant aa
tho Christian llfo. Every ono wants
pcaco and my Bible tells mo there 18
no rest for tho wickcu.
"You don't havo to be told that an ap
ple Is good. You don't havo to bo told
that bread and butter Is good for you
when you ro Hungry or mat wui- ,
good for you when you're thirsty. You
know It from experience, you'vo tried It.
I don't need to tell you thnt rollglon Is
good. I have had the experience and I
know that thero Is no life so pleasant as
the Christian life.
"So start when you're young and you
will always feel better. My experience
is that you will feel better If you live
"A "mother In Chicago had a little girl
and shortly after sho was born her eyes
became closed and every ono was afraid
sho would be forever blind. Time went
on and the doctor told her mother one
day he thought all that was the mat
ter was that there were cataracts on
tho child's eyes and advised her to go
to a specialist. So sho took her to a
specialist and ho said that was nil that
was tho matter and ho peeled back the
skin and put tho medicine in and ban
daged her eyes and told the mother to
keep her In a dark room for three
months. At the end of that time she
had put In the medicine every morning,
noon and night, tho specialist said that
sho could take off tho bandages, nnd
then her mother took her out and she
saw the flowers nnd the trees and the
grass and she said: "Oh. mother, why
didn't you tell me everything was so
pretty?' Her mother told her Bhe
oouldn't describe them to her and let
her know of the beauty so she could
understand, that she had to seo for her
self to really know. So you have to ex
perience religion to know the Joy of a
true Christian life. I can tell you about
It, but you won't understand until you
havo tried It.
"You want to lead a useful life. No
mother or father want their children
to bo useless. Every boy and girl wants
to be useful. You can graduate from sev
eral colleges and be a professor or a
doctor, but unless you're a Christian your
work will bo a failure. You must serve
God to do your best.
"I had a friend who was asked in by
a Vice President to see him when he
wns dying. Tho Vice President was Han
nibal Hamlin. My friend went and be
gan to talk of politics and' money and the
eventa of tho day, but the Vice Tresldent
stopped him and said: 'Don't talk of
nolltica and money. That Isn't what I
want to hear now. Alt that comforts me
now la religion, and the knowledge that
I am saved. ......
"So If you live and be President and
have not been a Christian you have lived
a useless life, but if you have lived a
Christian life and are not President or
do not hold any office, you have lived a
uacful life, and If you have God In your
llfo you will go to heaven.
"While I was In the Y. M. C. A. In
Chicago I was standing on the corner
one night and a man came along with
his toes sticking out and a ragged suit
on and a slouch hat and asked me for a
dime to get something to eat. I told
him I wouldn't give him a dime, because
he would go and get a dr(nk. He said,
You wouldn't let me starve, woutd you?'
I told him no. but that I wouldn't give
him the money, for him to come to the
Y. M. C. A. with me and stay until after
the meeting nnd I would take him out
and get him a good supper and a bed. He
wanted me to do It right away before
going to the Y, M. C. A.,. but I told him
no, I was working for some one until
10 o'clock. So he came up to the meeting
and stayed through the after-meeting and
was very much Interested.
"I saw that he used excellent language
and questioned htm and found that he

"In youth Is the tlnle to learn. I walk
down the street and seo tho signs, 'Boy
Wanted,' 'Girl Wanted,' to learn a trade.
I don't see any sign, 'Old Men Wanted,'
Old Women Wanted.' Why? Because
tho merchant wants the boy and girl so
ho can teach them. The older people are
set In their ways and hard to teach. You
don't seo the old people playing leapfrog,
They're too old, they'd break their necks.
You go to school to learn. Youth Is the
time to lenrn.
"You havo nil scon a circus nnd have
seen a man run down a plntform and
hit a springboard, and turn three or
four somersaults o'ver 14 elephants and
three horses, lie learned -when h was
a boy. If he had waited until he be
cams a man he would have broken, his
neck the first time he tried It. Learn
what JcsUs wants you to do. That's
why you go to school, when youe
young, to learn. When you get older It's
harder to learn. You learn easily when
you aro young.
"I was out In Jacksonville, 111., many
years ago nnd was sent to a deaf and
dumb asylum to make a speech. I asked
tho superintendent, Mr. Gillette, how
they expected me to talk to them. He
told mo to go ahead and talk and see.
Ho stood right beside me and there
wasn't a soul looked at me through that
speech. They watched him nnd ho told
them on his fingers what I was saying.
And when I hnd finished and hnd given
tho Invitation seven or eight came for
ward and said they wanted to live for
Christ. I asked the superintendent why
they couldn't learn to talk and he said
becauso they were deaf. If somo ono
had plugged. up your cars when you were
born you couldn't havo talked. They
had never heard a word and didn't know
what Is sounded like, and although they
had Just as good throats as some of you,
they couldn't say a word.
"A boy came In, about eight years of
age, and I asked him how long It would,
take him to learn to talk. Ho sdld about
seven or eight years. Another came In
about. IS years of age, and I asked him
how long It would take him to learn. He
was tho most brilliant boy In the class
and promised to bo the valedictorian, but
tho superintendent said It would take
him 12 or IS years to learn to talk. I
asked him If It was harder as they grew
oldftr, and ho said It wasr and that aUer
they had reached a certain age they
would never be able to talk.
"I had a preacher friend whose young
sons wanted a dog. They kept after
him and after him until at last one day
he brought homo nn old dog. The boys
tried to teach it tricks, but It was too
old to Jump, over tho seams In the car
pet. They kicked It out and told their
father they wanted a puppy. Ho got
them one nnd they soon had It Jumping
over broomsticks, leaping through paper
hoops, saying its prayers and dojng lots
of other stunts. They could teach that
puppy; It was young nnd could learn
easily. You can't teach an old dog
tricks. Tho same applies to persons.
When you're young you can learn easily:
when you're old It's harder to shako off
habits you have formed.
"ome of you will serve God. If you
come while you nre young, It will be
easy. If you wait until you are old It
will be harder, nnd after a certain time
It Is not likely that you will serve Him.
"The things I learned when I was a
boy I remember, while some of tho things
I learned later I forgot."
