SOMB morning when the early milkman
wakens you with his clatter, don't
say. "Oh. dear. I wish they would deliver
mlk same other way!" Just wake up
wide awake and think, "I wonder how
ether countries get their milk!" I'or in
deed, ther are as many queer ways of
delivering milk as you can Imagine!
Milk Is such a nourishing, wholesome
ftied Mat people from the earliest times
have used It when It was obtalnablo; and
the ways of getting It from place to place
have been mopt curious. But suppose you
eutit the ways in which milk has been
delivered this very day not in olden
lUu, but today.
First there Is the auto milk wagon which
ruhc around and delivers In lightning
tlmo. (ho milk which has been brought
frfli tho country dairies on milk express
Then there is the more common horss
drawn dairy wagon that early In tha
Mornjpi: travels through streets and
lUys leaving clon, cold bottles of fresh
milk on all the doorsteps.
lp maUer towns and villages the milk

"What Is the uo of tho 'obey' clause
when a husband Is met every tlmo by the
rejoinder: "Wo are living In war times,
nnd the country's got to come Aral!'"
Personally, I never did see the use of
that "obey" clnuso In the marriage ser
vice! It Is Just Inserted to bo broken,
nnyhow, and no sensible girl would ever
promise to do anything of the sort.
Hut to return to the question of these
marriage moratoriums. In the caso of
Mrs. Smith, who Is qulto CO If she's a day,
and who. In her spare time, takes
wounded "Tommies" out In her car, It
really doesn't much matter. Her hus
band, In all probability, will accept the
"war work" argument and won't worry
from Jealous fears.
Hut In tho enso of blonde and beautiful
Mrs. Dash, who Is only 22 and as pretty
as n picture, well things aro a little dif

hearts of all tho Invalided heroes sho

taking ofllcers out In her delightful little
boat on the river four dnys a week, too.
nnd railing It "government work" Isn't
going to satisfy her husband, oven though
they nrc different otllccrs every time.
And It makes him madder than ever
to be told when he remonstrates on
llm soldierly zeal of his better half that
he Is "unpatriotic" as well as ldl-
Personally, I think
that the girls, whether
they be married or sin
gle, aro nil doing splon
dldwork and should not
bo criticized or In any
way censured for so do
Ing. The husbands who
show Jealousy should
clear out of Kngland
and get to tho front
themselves, when they, too. If Bent home

are no children In the dairyman's family,
tho old father or the aged mother drives

But the strangest of all are the customs
In tha countries where goat's milk Is used
instead of cow's milk! Kor the goats are

as you would think would be done no.

Il"iird of nducatlon, the names of several
men are also being suggested In political
and educational circles.
A vacancy In the School Hoard exists
through tho death of William T. Tlldcn.
It Is expected thnt the Judges will soon
nnme a mnn or woman to succeed him.
The terms, of five members will expire In
November, so that they will also be re
quired to make ncv appointments then.
There are now no female members of
the School Hoard. Among tho women
suggested for the honor nto Mrs Hudolph
Ulankenburg and Mrs. Kduln C Orlcc.
Murrell Dobbins, ex-City Treasurer, has
also been mentioned as a posslblo suc
cessor of Mr. Tlldcn.
Mr. DobblnH was once a member of tho
Board of Education, but was obliged to
resign because of his election to tho City
Treasurcrshlp. From two distinct son ices

Senate In 1900 as an anti-Quay man, and
several years later was mado a member of

Two little fellows wandered Into St. J)
scph's Hospital today. One pushed
his way Into tho accident ward, doubled
up and squirming, the nurses thought,
"Please, lady, kin I Bee th doctor right
"What's the matter?" asked the nurse.
Hut the boy only squirmed and folded
his arms still tighter over his middle. Ho
looked to bo In such pain that tho nm so
hurried for a doctor.
"Please, doctor," sobbed the boy, pro
ducing a chicken hidden under his coat,
when Doctor Hums appeared, "will yuh
operate on him? He won't cat 'cause
his leg's broke." Doctor Ilurns felt the
bird, but could discover nothing wrong.
"Tell you what I'll do," he said, "I'll
take an X-ray of the bird."
So the assembly adjourned to the X-ray
room. But the bird balked at tho table.
"Get some corn," suggested the nurse.
There was none handy, so the doctor laid
a trial of pills from tho chicken to the
table. The chicken clucked and went
for the meal. When ho was In lino the
plate was snapped. But Instead of snlf
ring at the pills the bird ate them. When
the power from tho X-rny went on tho
pills went off Inside th" chicken.

NEW PHONE KD31BER LETTERS

Troublesome "L," "X"
The letters "A" and "D" will soon dis
appear completely from number tags on
Bell telephones throughout this city.
Thero will be no longer a "Walnut
th-r-r-re-e, thr-r-ro-e, thr-r-re-c D" to
puzzle anxious telephone operators, nor
a "Preston seventy-four-elghty-A" to fig
ure oui. instead tnero will be walnut
233-J and Preston 74SO-W
These changes are being made as a re
sult of an extensive study by experts of
the company to determine what letters
are least likely to be misunderstood over
the phone. Those selected were W, J,
It nnd M. Two-party lines will have the
letters W and J, while four-party lines
will have all of the four letters selected.
Hitherto two-party lines have had the
letters A and D and four-party lines the
letters W, I,, X and Y.
Tho making of the changes was begun
early last ear and continued at the rate
of about 4000 In each Issue of the direc
tory As there were only about IS 000
changes to be made It Is expected that
the work will be virtually completed In
the next Issue.

Inclined to change the adage by Inserting

children are perfect specimens of what
healthy children should be.
Doctor Wiley nnd his talented wife
havo never believed that there is any
proprietary formula for raising healthy
