A group of "llvo wires" In We3t Philadel
phia, banded together In the Shorwood Im
procmont Association, havo cleaned up
their district until tt shines llko spotless
They started with a simple idea, and
the thing developed until they found thorn
Bolvcs doing engineering work. They began
to get rid of mosquitoes and ended by
building a bridge. Now they nro resting,
although ns soon as thry can catch their
second wind they are going nhcad with more
Most of the members of the Sherwood
Improvement Association nro commercial
men, but they havo learned that they aro
pretty good laborers, too, to say nothing of
being engineers nnd money raisers. All
tho exponso of their campaign, bo far aa raw
material was concerned, was bomo by tho
members of tho association, nnd nil tho
actual v,ork has been done by them, too.
Tho Idea camo first to David I. Moore,
treasurer of tho association. Ho lives nt
5860 Willows avenue. Ho wnlkcd across
tho street td his neighbor, W. J. Williams,
who lives at 6865 Willows avenue, and
suggested to Mr. Williams that tho Sher
wood Improvement Association get rid of
mosquito-breeding places. It seemed llko
a good ljca.
They caltod together about a dozen of
tho Sherwood enthusiasts and marched
down to Cobb's Creek. That was In June.
When they finished Cobb's Creek was Bwcpt
clean of all LruBh and places whero mos
quitoes had their breeding places, from
Springfield avenuo to Hoffman avenue, ut
most a mile.
It took thorn somo time to do It, but when
thoy finished their neighbors began to re
mark that tho mosquitoes weren't biting nny
more. Tho work was laborious; thoro was
cutting nnd hauling galore, some of tt so
dllllcult that Dr. Cyrus W. Friday brought
hla automobile down to tho creek bank
nnd used It aa an autotruck.
When that Job was over tho members
turned to the next Improvement. They de
cided to build a bridge, botweon Whitby
avenuo and Willows avenue, over tho creek,
connecting tho city with Mt. Morlah Ccme
tory. Before that brldgo waa thero ono
had to mako a wldo detour to get across
Mr. Williams owns up to being almost aa
much of nn engineer as a salesman, which
latter vocation ho follows on weekdays, and
ho drew up tho plans for tho bridge. They
got tho best timbers by going down In their
pockets nnd subscribing for tho lumber, nnd
thon the men pitched together to do the
carponter work. Mayor Smith, whllo ho
doesn't lay nny claim to being nny sort of
engineer, rodo out thero ono dny on horso
back to see this work of which ho had heard
much, and ho pronounced It to bo first class.
When tho work was first begun permission
had to bo obtained from Chief Engineer
Vogdos, of tho Falrmount Fark Commission.
Ho demurred, because he didn't think these
business men could do a satisfactory Job.
Finally he gave his consent; now ho'a glad
NEW YORK FINANCIER,
ONCE A PEDDLER, DIES
J. Seligman, Oldest Stock Ex
change Member, Succumbs
at Summer Home
LONG BRANCH, N. J., Aug. 21. James
Seligman, a retired member of the firm of
J. and W. Sellgmnn & Co., New York bank
ers, died at his summer home here at the
age of 92 year?. He was the oldest mem
ber of tho New York Stock Exchange.
His Ufa cannot be better told -than in his
own words, spoken on the ove of his 89th
"I was born In 1824 In Balersdorf, Ger
many," he said. "My mother conducted a
store Independently of my father, who was
a woolen merchant, and looked after the
home as well. I waa the third son.
"My parents sent mo to the village school
until I waa 11 years old. Then they sent
me to floss, juu mues irom nome, to
learn the weaver's trade from my uncle and
aunt. Three yeara later I returned to
Balersdorf. When I was 9 years old two
wagonloads of people left Balersdorf for
America and my eldest brother Joseph went
with them. Ho went to Pennsylvania,
where he obtained a position as cashier In
a coal mine at a salary of 1400 a year.
"In the spring of 1839 two wagonloads
of peasants again left our little village, my
brother William and myself among them.
I was then 15 years old. We each had
S40 from our mother sewed In a little bag
around our waists. I went to Mauch Chunk,
Pa where my brother Joseph secured mo a
position aa apprentice to a carpenter In
Bethlehem, Pa. I waa to remain a year
with him for my board until I had learned
the trade. Four months later I decided to
quit the business.
"My brother Joseph then went to Beth
lehem and expended 1300 for Jewelry rings,
bracelets 'and watches, some gold-plated,
others German stiver. With these goods as
a loan and the 140 given me by my mother
I went to work peddling, and on the first
day sold more than 3100 worth of tha goods.
I kept at the occupation In Pennsylvania
for a year with succesa The following
year I went South and made 31000,
"Joseph and William decided to peddle
also. I came North to meet them and In
1840 Influenced them to go South with me.
We decided to continue as merchants, and
after a few years we opened a dry goods
store In Greensboro, Ala., with Joseph as
manager, The rest of us kept on as
Deddlers. and later a second store waa
opened In Utah, Ala. I continued Itinerant
"We later sold our southern stores and
came Mono, wimara openea a dry goods
store In St. Louis and Jesse took charge
of one In Watertown, N, Y, In 1846 Joseph
and I planned to open an important houso
In New York under the name of J, & W,
Seligman & Co.. at the corner of Beekman
street We did fairly well until the gold
fever struck the country, and William,
Jesse, Henry and Leopold caught the fever
and went to Ban Francisco, whero they
opened a store In 1861.
"After eight yeara Jesse and William re
turned to New York and opened a dry goods
store in this city. Through William our
Stores received contracts from the Govern
ment to supply.aoldlers uniforms, and these
contracts amounted to several millions of
dollars. After the Ctvll War we decided
to go into the banking business, and a
year later Jesse went to Frankfort to open
a bank. We sold United States Govern
ment bonds, which were the first to go
to Europe. Later Abraham opened a bank
ing business In this city, and Isaac, my
younger brother and Leopold established a
branch in London. William Boon afterward
went to Paris and established a Seligman

Tho colony. Doctor Turner says, will be
located on nno of tho iei Islands off South
Cni-ollnn, Inn tho exact stto h.is not yet

through whoso munificence tho settlement
has been made possible Is John T. Patrick,

organizing the project, mid when the town
baa been founded It will bo subject to a
form of civil government A. U. Do Push,
a Charlcstown lawyer, will npply for n
charter from the Statu of South Carolinn,
nccordlng to Doctor Turner's announce
ment. No stock will be sold In establishing the

named. It was In consequence of Doctor
Turner'3 solicitation that Mr. Patrick made
Georgo Singleton, owner of flvo silk mills
In various parts of tho country, will stnrt

tho movement. An extensive, canning In
dustry Is said to bo planned, and n brothor
of tho lato Booker T. Washington, now a
membor of the faculty of Tuskcgco Insti

Doctor Turner believes that the colony
will bo a success ns a seaside resort for
colored persons A hotel to accommodate
black visitors, as wall as a smaller hos
telry to proklo for tho whlto men and
women who visit tho place aa an object of
interest, will bo erected.
Tho entire plan Is said to havo met with
the approvnl of the white residents of tho
South. Doctor Turner believes that colo
nization represents tho only real solution of
tho negro problem. Public schools, ho says,
will be organized and an attempt made to
obtain a Federal appropriation for tho edu
cational Institutions. Children will be In
structed in trades, and Inefficient nnd sloth
ful negroes will bo banished from the Island.

Facts About Navy Told In Little Book
The greatest difficulty In getting a euffl

' THE CHICK AND THE CHILD
My Dear Children Do you know what it means to COMPARE things?
We can learn only by comparison. We use It constantly, especially when we are
children. Wo say that something Is as high as a mountain or that we love our
mother three bags full,
I want you today to compare a small, tiny, fuzzy little chicken one day old
to a baby the. same age.
Little Mr. Chicken comes out of his shell, nestles under his mother's warm
wing until his feathers are dry and then starts to scratching for a living.
Of course, Mr. Chick watches his mother out of the corner of his eye,
but just the same, at the age of one day he begins to shift for himself,
He sees a nice little worm and he knows it is food. He gets hold of one
end of it and, behold! his one-day-old baby brother gets hold of the other end
of it and they have a royal battle.
Thus we see that Mr. Chick learns to guard and FIGHT for HIS OWN at
the early age of one day.
Suppose Mr. Chick with his brothers and sisters are out in the fields scratch
ing away, Mother Hen sees a hawk sailing over the field. She gives a warning
cry and she with her babies scoot for shelter. How does Mr Chick know mother
is warning him?
Suppose we say, because It Is INSTINCT.
I have written about a little chicken. My space (my alloted number of
words) is up. Suppose YOU tell me about a day-old baby,

Sevrance nnd I exchanged glances of

In his deductive reasoning, then.
"Wo wero left behind, with Grady," said
Sovranco. "What tlmo did you say It waa?"
"After two In tho mornln', sir; I seo them

short On tho contrary, It took us a good
20 minutes to reach tho top of tho landing.
Hero all was as wo might havo expected
to find it deserted. Beyond a trampled
area of dead grass, scarcely a vestlgo of tho
night's conflict remained to testify to tho
reality of our oxperlenco, Only that area,
whero tho fight had taken plnce, a dried,
blackish spot or two upon tho grass, marks
of muddy feet upon tho landing and stairs,
nnd ono cruel-looking poniard, which I
stumbled upon by accident, were there to

"Did ho wako- up at all?" Sevrance asked
"He was tryln' to, sir, when T found him.
Hut he couldn't remember nothln. I soused
his head with cold water, sir Ice cold
and gave him .Some black coffee and put
him to bed to sleep It off. He must ha

"Ho was drugged," Sevrance explained.
'So wo were savo that we must have been
given a smaller dose of tho stuff."
Indeed, wo seemed to have gotten oft
cheaply. Neither Sovrance nor myself waa
conscious of any particularly lit effects ; but
Orady, when we saw him, showed up aa
broken as nny man who ever put In a full
week of hard drinking. Hla head waa split

despcrato' bad. As for his nervous system
It wns nn tutor wreck, evidenced beyond
question by hla Incoherence, hla restless
oyo nnd tho palsy of hla hands.
"Lavo me slapo till nvcnln'," he begged,

"It Is no matter, Grady, "Sevrance told
him kindly, "ltest nnd get yourself In

Thompson had prepared a meager break
fastmeager, although ho plainly set be
foro us tho best of hla larder; and of this
wo ate, moro from a sense of duty than
from desire. Later It was then perhapa
half after three Sevrance proposed a re
turn to Saltacres Hall.
"In our hurry to get out," he said, "I left
my watch under my pillow. I want that
and well, wo might as welt as not look
about It Is not Inconceivable "
"That her ladyship may havo left ua some
thing whereby wo might trace her. She
took that troublo onco before. The house
keeper may havo been Intrusted with a note
for you. Cho may havo returned, or be
now on her way."
"Confound It!" I cried exasperated. "Why
tantallzo mo with false hopes, Tony?"
Nevertheless, his suggestion served to
rouse me out of my gloom. I followed him
with moro Interest up the carriago road to
tho hall. It was a baro possibility what
ho had hinted.
Wo opened the front door and stepped
Into the shadowed Interior of tho great
paneled, main hatl.
Tho chill desolation of the place struck
Into my heart. Instinctively! I folt assured
that our quest was to provo fruitless. On
tho contrary, Sevrance debated aloud over
a puzzling circumstance.
"Now, I asked Thompson again," he pon
dered, "and ho Is positive that' he heard
the door locked upon their backs. It waa
unlocked when wo camo down this morn
ing. Doors don't unlock themselves, Gor
don. Ergo, some ono returned eh?"
"Ho Is mistaken," I doubted honestly,
Boforo tho cold nshes of the great fire

sllonco that held sway within the great de

llko two frightened children who had. on
exploration bent, strayed Into such a place.
"Well?" I said finally, omlllng forlornly
into Sevranco'a face.
I fairly held my breath for a full minute,
but beyond tho beating of my heart I heard
nothing. Still, Sevrance seemed unsatis
fied, restraining my Impatience with a
"Wait!" ho whispered. "Wait but a
moment longer, Gordon. I am sure "
The scampering of a mouse within the
wainscoting startled me.
'Thatl" I sneered contemptuously. ,
"Not not that but that 1"
And then I, too, heard the sound which
had caught his keen ears first a faint.
far, shrill tinkling. Our eyes questioned
one another fruitlessly as we waited In a
breathless silence for Its repetition.
It came again, a mere thread of clear,
fine sound. I could have Imagined it the
ghost of a telephone bell's sharp sum
mons, had I not known that such a thing
did not exist In the Hall. A slender, trem
ulous shiver of sound. It echoed again and
again, now seeming to seep up from the
very bowela of the edifice, beneath our feet,
now to come from the upper regions of tha
great house, now to be near at hand, now

stared one another almost out of counte
