TIME TO MAKE ARRESTS
The iey condition of many sidewalks, due to fail
ure to remove the snow that fell last Sunday, eon
btitutes a menace to life and limb. Several cases
of broken bones resulting from falls have been re
There is no excuse for this danger being per
mitted to exist. The chief of police has been quoted
as saying there is an ordinance permitting arrests
and the placing of tines on the responsible persons
who fail to keep the sidewalks clean. Yet there
is scarcely a block in any part of the city in which
there is not at least one dangerously iey sidewalk.
The police can easily learn who are the offenders.
The warning has been given and since it has not
been heeded it is now time to make some arrests.
GERMAN SHELLING OF BRITISH TOWNS
The war news which' for a time threatened to be
come monotonously routine by reason, perhaps, of
the strict censorship which sought to confine the dis
patches to mere generalities stripped of picturesque
detail, is coming across the ocean now in such thrill
ing form as to satisfy the most deepest craving for
exciting reading. Two most thrilling incidents of
the war have occurred in the last few days in a way
that made impossible the suppression of the news.
We refer to the daring exploit of Lieutenant Com
mander Holbrook, who dived in a British subma
rine under five rows of mines and sunk a Turkish
warship, and the even more thrilling dash of a
squadron of German cruisers to the east shore of
England, whew they proceeded to hurl shot and
shell into ■several coast towns, causing considerable
loss of life and much destruction of property.
The purpose of this German exploit has not been
fully explained. Apparently no strategic advantage
was gained by the daring invasion of British wat
ers, —the first time it has been doue by a foreign
fleet for centuries. It is conceivable, however, that
the demonstration was designed to impress the Brit
ishers, right at home, with the daring and henoism
of the Kaiser's fightiug men and for the moral effect
it would have on the German land forces to learn
that a German sea force was actually able to carry
the war to the Britains' own territory.
On the other hand this German invasion is likely
to have a beneficial moral effect on the British peo
ple. The knowledge that the British now have that
such an invasion is possible; that their own people
have been shot to death right at home, and that
their own buildings have been blown to pieces by
German guns, is not likely to diminish the enthusi
asm of the British in the carrying on of the war or
to lessen their hatred of the Germans. It is more
likely to arouse the Britishers to seek revenge and
to provide a stimulus for recruiting which, rumors
say, has not been going ahead as rapidly in Great
Britain as the military authorities there desire.
HELPI%fL (?) HINTS FOR SHOPPERS
Human nature appears in many Varied forms at
this Christmas shopping season. It seems oppor
tune that some helpful (?) advice be given busy
shoppers at this time, based on personal observa
tions of their perversities.
Shoppers in going throygh the crowded aisles of
a store should cordially greet all friends whom they
meet and should promptly brace themselves against
a counter and speak pleasantly to thesq friends on
various topics for an hour or two.
Christmas buyers ought never to enter a store
knowing exactly what they want to purchase, but
should depend largely on the clerks to select the
k tfARRTSBtnm STAR-INDEPENDENT, THURSDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 17, 1914/
proper gifts for them. This will keep the clerks
busy, and will give them an added sense of their
In going 011 shopping expeditious, persons should
first make several trips to price articles and "to
look around," returning later to purchase the goods
which they then selected. This will keep the stores
crowded and thus add to the general merriment.
Parents in conducting eager children through the
toy departments should gratify all desires of the
childish hearts, permitting the youngsters to fam
ine and handle all the perishable things available,
and requiring the salespeople to operate all the me
chanical contrivances which the little ones cannot
themselves attend to.
Above all, shoppers should postpone making a
number of their purchases until the last day or two
before Christmas, and should then be insistent that
they be waited upon with promptitude. This will
give the salespeople something with which to oc
cupy their minds in the quiet closing hours of the
CLOTHING POOR SCHOOL CHILDREN
Correction has been made of a wrong impression
that has had much circulation, to the effect that
Judge Gorman of the Philadelphia Juvenile court
had authorized an order on the Board of Education
for suitable clothing for four impoverished children
who were unable to attend school because of the
lack of proper apparel. According to the incorrect
account, this order had its basis 011 the new school
code's compulsory education clause.
The true statement of the case now appears to be,
however, that the judge in his order referred the
children's pitiable condition to the compulsory
agents' bureau of the Board of Education, intend
ing the bureau to seek relief for the little ones
through 11 city relief agency or through the Depart
ment of Health or Charities.
Since the school code has been brought into this
•affair, opportunity has been offered to persons who
are eager for knowledge, to learn something more
about that rather complicated collection of sections
and clauses. The code does not say that a Board
of Education must supply clothing for poor chil
dren, but provides, we arc told, that when a child
lacking needed clothing and food cannot attend
school, the case shall be surned over to a relief
agency in the school district or to the overseers of
The original report that Judge Gorman had re
quired the Hoard of Education to supply the poor
children with clothing, according to supposed pro
visions of the school code, met with unfavorable
criticisms in different quarters. It is indeed for
tunate that there was no such order, for the school
code will now not need to be amended to satisfy
cautious persons who fear lest the public schools
care for more than the strictly intellectual interests
of their charges.
Defence of our defences is occupying a large part of the
time of some of our Washington statesmen.

TOLD IN LIGHTER~VEIN
Richard Crocker, at a dinner at the Democratic Club, I
in New York, said of the war:
"Everybody is telliug the combatants in Europi what
a regenerated world it will be after the -syar is oirer —no
more armament firms, no more conscription, no more race
rivalry. But the way they are getting killed off, the com
batants must feel about all this consolation like Tim Grady.
"Tim Grady lay in his sick bed groaning and moaning.
" 'Are ye very bad, Tim?' asked his wife.
" 'No,' said he. 'lt's the doctor I'm think' of. What a
bill it'll be, to be sure, to be sure.'
" 'Shure, now, Tim, never mind about that,' said his
wife. 'There's the insurance money, ain't thereT "—Wash
ington Btar, f
"I suppose you meet many kinds of people?"
"No, they're all alike," said the shoe clerk. "Every
woman who comes in here thinks she's a Cinderella."
THE POLITE BULL
An Irishman was going along the road when an angry
bull rushed at him and tosesd him over the fence. The
Irishman, recovering from his fall, upon looking up saw
the bull pawing and tearing up the ground as is the custom
of the animal when irritated, whereupon he smiled happily
"Faith and if it wasn't for your bowing and scraping and
humble apologies I'd think you had thrown me over that
fence on purpose."—National Monthly.
Mrs. Brown was in the kitchen helping Nora, the cook,
"It's an old saying," she remarked to Nora, "that 'too
many cooks spoil the broth,' what do you think?"
"Sure, mam," she replied, "there's nothing to worry
about—there's only wan cook here."—National Monthly.
Bill.Sprague kept a general store at Croyden Four Cor
ners. One day he set off for New York to buy a lot of
goods. The goods were shipped immediately, and as Bill
had lingered in New York sightseeing, they reached Croy
den Fair Corners bofore him. The goods, in an enormous
packing case, were driven to the general store by the local
teamster. Mrs. Sprague came ont to see what had arrived
and, with a shriek, tottered and fell.
"Oh, what's the matter, ma'am?" cried the hired girl.
Mrs. Sprague, her eyes blinded with tears, pointed to the
packing case, whereon was stenciled in large black letters:
BILL INSlDE.—National Monthly.

Penelope—"Thank, you, poor mummie's a bit below her

Taking No Chauces With Smallpox
Dr. John M. .1. Itaunick, the city's
health officer, believes with Dr. Samuel
0. Dixon, State Health Commissioner,
I hat Hie way to light the spread of a
disease is to fight it, and not stand
around discussing what is best to be
done. A man at the head of a health
department, according to Commissioner
Dixon, oug'ht to know what is to be
done, and act quickly, and that is just
what Dr. Raunick did on Monday when
it became known that a case of small
pox was "in our midst." He rounded
up the people who had contact with the
afflicted man, had them vaccinated with
out delay aud then started out on a
cinate everybody whom I have reason
to believe came within the zone of tJhe
disease and who may possibly acquire
it," said Dr. Raunick, and he is going
to carry out that intention regardless
of the many sore arms that may result
from Ilia activity. But, it's the best
way, after all, and tjie only thing to
do-to prevent an epidemic of the disease
iu Harrisburg. Within a month there
will be thousands of strangers in Har
risburg attending the organization of
the Legislature or here to witness the
inaugural ceremonies attendant upon
the induction of Dr. Brumbaugh into
tliQ office of Uovernor, and it would nev
er do for the inipressibn to get abroad
that' our health authorities have not
gone- the limit in the performance of
tlheir duty to prevent the spread of the
disease. Dr. Raunick is a very busy city
official these days.
Child Welfare Forty Years Ago
Forty years ago last Tuesday the
world's first child welfare society was
organized in the city of New York.
It named itself the New York Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Chil
dren. Prior to its origin children in
DO YOU SUFFER
When your kidneys are weak and
torpid they do not properly perform
their functions; your back aches and
you do not feel like doing much of
anything. You are likely to be despond
ent and to borrow trouble, just as if
you hadn't enough already. Don't be
a victim any longer.
The old reliable medicine, Hood's
Sarsaparilla, gives strength aud tone to
the kidneys and builds ud tho whole
nystem. Get it to-day. ; Adv.
the hands of unnatural parents, rela
tives and exploiters, were defenseless.
One summer day in IS7 4 charitable
workers visited a woman dying of
tuberculosis in the slums of New York.
She complained that she could not die
in peace 'because of the almost constant
cries of a child in an adjoining room.
A little waif, 'Mary Ellen by name,
was found locked in a bare room. Her
head and body were covered with
bruises ajid cuts, and in the room were
found the rusty shears with which her
stepmother had been in the habit of
torturing the child. Stirred to the
depths of their hearts the charity work
ers appealed to many officials, organi
zations and influential citizens, always
to receive the disheartening reply: "We
can do nothing unless the child is
brought to us legally, and proof offered
t'hat an offense has been committed."
It happened that there existed a So
ciety for Prevention of Cruelty to Ani
mals. As a last resort the charity work
ers turned there, and in the "dark
days of the 70 V' the first legal pro
tection given an abused child was un
der the laws that protected dumb ani
mals. That experience set In motion the
movement that resulted in the first so
ciety in the world for tfie prevention
of cruelty to children.

In Defense of the Children
To-day the whole enlightened world
is arrayed in defense of its ehildreu.
Statute books fairly bristle with
formidable laws that offer protection
to their moral, mental and physical wel
fare. With the pioneer society as an
inspiration, children's aid societies, hu
mane associations, foundling hospitals
and their like have sprung up all over
the world. In the United States to-day
there are about 450 societies whose pur
pose is t>he prevention of cruelty to chil
dren, while it is estimated that thero
are at least. 100 more such societies
scattered through the civilized coun
tries. Even Asiatics aad Africans are
now protecting their youth of both
sexes from inhuman exploitation and
abuse. During its forty years of benevo
lent work, the New York Society for
the Prevention of Cruefty to Children
alone investigated about 350,000 com
plaints that involved the welfare of
about 1,000,0(Tl) New York chihlren
under the age of 16. Nearly 200,000
of these were rescued from immoral
surroundings, physical cruelty, neglect
and destitution. Every State in the
Union has its laibor laws which effect
the 2,000,000 American working boys
and girls between tiho ages of 10 and
15, which the National Ohiltl Labor
Commission is endeavoring to make uni
form throughout the nation. There ate
<-hil<lren '9 courts to dispense justice to
a large part of the. 25,000 juvenile de
linquents reported annually in this coun
try. There are homes for the crippled
and the deaf and dumb, and there
are places where the working-mother
may leave her children during t'he day
while sho is outside of her home earn
ing a livelihood.

The pavement artist had departed
earlier than usual, and apparently in a
hurry, for he had not rubbed out his
glaring efforts. I was speculating as
to why he should have decamped so
suddenly, when I saw n ragged and
very dirty boy stealthily take up th
artist's position. After a careful look
round he took off his cap and held It
