Mrs. Clara FolU, First Woman to
Bo Assistant District Attorney.
MBS. CLAItA SnOnTLEDGE FOLTZ.
Mrs. Clara Shortledgo Foltz Is the
first woman in the United States to bo
appointed to the office of assistant dis
trict attorney. Mrs. Foltz has her
homo In Los Angeles, Cal., where she
was made assistant district, attorney
several months ago. She is the sister
of Samuel L. Shortlcdgc. who Is the
law partner of Del mas. the man who
defended Harry Thaw. Up to tbo time
of tbo earthquake her home was in
San Francisco, but when the conflagra
tion which followed the quako destroy
ed it she moved to Los Angeles and
took up the practice of law there. She
rapidly made a name for herself and
proved so able In arguing cases that
the district attorney Anally asked her
to join bis staff.
Mrs. Foltz has a commanding pres
ence and an eloquent and pleasant
voice. Her eyes flash as she speaks,
and she puts strength into every sen
tence, while her language evidences
wide reading and original thinking.
She Is not masculine in any sense and
is a stanch antisuffragist. When asked
to give her views recently on the
suffragist question she declared that
there was little likelihood that the suf
frage would be extended to women and
gave as her reason that the women of
the country generally were opposed to
entering a field peculiarly masculine.
"Nature itself has decided the suf
frage question by making man strong
er than woman," she said. "Woman
was intended for tho home and man
for the battle of life. Woman has her
own sphere, and it is bounded by the
boundaries of family life. Take away
from woman the power to look up to
man. to regard hirn as her protector
and guardian, and you take away her
Mrs. Foltz has tho following to say
about the power of tho district attor
ney's office: "The district attorney Is
not and should not be a prosecutor
pure and simple, because his position
and peculiar relation to tho people
make him un officer of justice and not
a mere avenger of crime.
"It should be his duty and privilege
to seo that the scales of justice do not
Incline any more to severity than to
condonement. aud his aim should be
not to achieve n record number of con
victions, but rather to bring about the
attainment of absolute fairness in the
trials in which he takes part."
Servant Problem 3,000 Years Old.
It is rather comforting for distraught
housewives who have difficulties with
their domestics to know tho servant
problem is nothing modern and not, as
has been surmised, on effect of a per
pctual war between capital and labor.
Mistress and maid, man and master,
have always been in antagonism to
each other. Reverse the situation and
It would be the same, as it has been
ever since the world began. A Phila
delphia authority rejoices because at
I'ordham university it has come to
light that nearly 3,000 years B. C. the
Egyptians wero having as poor a time
with servants as some people In the
United States are experiencing this
very day. It was not all rapturo and
roses in tho best families of Egypt ow
ing to this branch of domestic life not
bearing proper fruit. From somo an
cient papyri which havo recently been
unearthed in a tomb near Memphis
maxima havo been deciphered that aro
eyo openers. Tho Egyptians must havo
had a terrible time in their households
when such sentiments as theso survive
tho centuries: "In Booth thou shalt find
It hard to satisfy thy servants desplto
thy earnest desires, for if thou bo
harsh with them they shall say: 'He is
a cruel master. Lo, wo shall go!'" Solo

when ho said there is nothing now un
der tho sun, for It mado no difference
to Pharooh'fl servant, "oven though
thou glvo princely gifts of gold tips,
of course and precious stones to thy
higher servants, content is not In them,
for they shall say: Lo, tho master Is
suddenly grown gracious I Wo shall

Novel Rules For Collecting Refuse,
In the town of Port Jervis, N. Y an
ordinance has been adopted which re
quires every owuer, tenant, lessee and
occupant of every building in the city
to provide receptacles for holding ref
use having a capacity for one week's
accumulation. Two receptacles are tc
be provided, one for ashes and rub
bish, the other for garbage and liquid
substances. They must be provided
with handles and metal covers and
must not be tilled to within nearer
than four inches of the top. The two
classes of rubbish must bo kept strict
ly separated uud must be deposited on
private property, but conveniently aa
cesslhle to the collector, the garbage
being kept where It will not freeze In
winter nor become a nuisance In sum
mer. These materials will bo removed
by the city collectors. No refuse of
any kind is to bo accumulated for
more than ono week, and nothing
which attracts flies or would be a
breeding place for mosquitoes or in
any way create a nuisance should bo
placed anywhere around tho property
except In receptacles provided. VIolu
tion of the ordinance Is punishable by
a flue not exceeding $100, by Imprison
ment not exceeding two months or by
both. Citizens are requested to burn
as much rubbish, papers, sweepings
etc.. as possible. This little lesson
should le practiced by other towus,
aud they would profit thereby.

And as the minutes control the hours
and mere fractions of time the months

the small things that are real and

Clntilo Land Fell Before Macedonia
Because of Malaria.
Sir James Crichton-Browne, an emi
nent English scientist, has been study
ing conditions In tho Mediterranean
basin at first hand nnd in tho light of
ancient history. Ho has come to tho
conclusion that Greece foil, not bo
foro tho arms of tho Invading armies
of tho Orient nor by corrupting vices,
but becauso tho mosquito got lodg
ment thero and supped the vital forces
of thoso horoes by Injecting tho
germs of malaria. We presume that
it must bo truo If a scientific man
says co, although we should like a lit
tlo mora demonstration. It Is hard to
accept everything on faith In science
as well as In religion.
Of course, nil know that tho
rcece described by Herodotus and
Thucydldes and Xenophon Is not tbo

third century B. C. Every school boy
who has been roused to enthusiasm
over the battles of marathon and
Salamls, or Plateau, Thermopylae and
even those during tho Intcrneclno
Poloponeslan wars; who has waxed
enthusiastic over the Athens of Peri
cles and Plato, of Aechylua and Sopo
cles, the Greece of tho Parthenon, and
of the Olympian games every such
boy has always felt a dull aching of
his heart ns he read of the sudden de
ollno of all this grandeur and the fall
of Greece Into the maw of the Mace
donians. He has often wondered why,
nnd perhaps none of tho explanations
offered has satisfied him. We all
know now, for tho first time, that It
was the mosquito and not a lack of
bravo men on the fighting line. No
soldier could be expected to handle a
sword or spear with several billions
of malarial bacilli working on his In
The explanation, however, leaves
much to be explained. Why didn't tho
mosquitoes go farther north nnd de
stroy the Macedonians us well? How
does the learned scientist know that
the mosquitoes came from Greece on
a ship sailing from the marshes along
the Nile? If we may trust the re
cords of Crete there was commerce
with Greece a thousand years before
the age of Pericles. Why didn't the
mosquitoes emigrate earlier?
Origin of Heraldry.
According to the highest authori

In the barbaric custom of painting or

tooing It on the various parts of the
