NO MORE "IiAME DUCKS."
Senator Borah has presented his bill providing that no person who
has been a member of Congress shall be eligible to appointment to any
federal office within two years after he retires from legislative life. Such
a law would annihilate the "lame duck" brigade, but it is very probable
that the lame ducks wiljl be able to flap their wings sufficiently to defeat
BERGER'S OLD-AGE PENSION BILL.
Every person in the United States GO years of age or older who has
been a citizen 16 years, who has an income of less than ?6 a week and who
has not been convicted of a felony, would be put on the pension roll of the
United States if Congress passed a bill Introduced last week by Represen
tative Berger of Wisconsin, who constitutes the socialist party in the
House. The bill would give pensions

Those women who worked so industriously the other day cleaning up
the Park are the right kind. It was a mighty hot day and one that made
everyone especially mankind want to keep as quiet as possible. When
you come right down to it, the last analysis will always show that women
or a woman are at the bottom of everything. Those women are to be
congratulated on their public spirit and thanked for their efforts in a good
MORE MONEY NEEDED TO RAISE THE MAINE.
Congress will bo asked soon by the war department to appropriate
$250,000 more to complete the work of raising the battleship Maine in
Havana harbor. This will make a total expenditure of $900,000, and so
far nothing very important has developed. Opinion seems to be pretty
evenly divided on the question of whether the Maine was sunk from the
outside or from an explosion on the inside. 'Still it has given the War
Department something to occupy Its

The Star, Washington's evening
for a two weeks' fly-killing contest
first prize is $25, the second $20, the third $15 and so on down to $1.
The main conditions are as follows:
Entrants must be children under 10 years of age.
Flies must be delivered, after being killed, between the hours of 10
and 11 a. m. at any one of the following six stations of the associated
charities: Georgetown, Central, Southwest, Northwest, Southeast and
Northern. The stations will not be open Sunday, July 30, and no flies will
be received on that day.
Specially made boxes in which the flies must be delivered have been
provided free of cost by the George P. Killian manufacturing company of
452 Pennsylvania avenue northwest, and can be had upon application at
any of the above-named stations.
The names, ages and addresses of the contestants must be carefully
written on the boxes.
The files will be collected daily and taken to the District building,
where they will be counted under the supervision of Dr. Arthur L. Mur
ray of the health department.
A separate card for each contestant will be kept on flle at the health
department, which will show the daily progress made in the campaign.
Boys generally like to kill flies, and a " swatting " contest for money
cannot fall to arouse their sporting instincts. But, in this case, the public
had already been bo well educated concerning the danger to public health
in the housefly pest that the girls were no less energetic than the boys in
becoming, exterminators. The operations began last week, Monday. By
Thursday night astonishing results began to appear. The leading youngs
ter was officially credited with 52,21)0 dead flies. His nearest competitor,
a 12-year-old girl, was credited with 39,'GOO. The total of the six highest
contestants was 199, GOO. The Star, in Friday's Issue, printed a picture of
a big wagon being loaded with boxes of dead flies collected at one of the
branch fly stations. On the morning of the fifth day, the rush for fly
boxes was so great that the manufacturers could not meet the demand.
It was clear that the younger generation had ripen to the 'occasion and
that, if the thing could be done In two weeks, they would make Washing
ton a flyless city.
The Star has dono a good work and ono which will make Washington
a healthier city.

"A leading French photographer
has devised a method for making
positives out of negatives. It will
be recalled that In a photographic
negative dark spots appear where
light ones are intended to appear in
the finished photograph, and that
tho negative Is transparent where
black is to appear in the photograph.
The Paris photographer subjects tho
negative to the ordinary treatment,
and then closes it into another bath,
whereby the deposited silver which
makes up the shading of the nega

salt Is placed by the same process
in those parts of the negative which
formerly were partially or wholly
transparent. In this way he Is able
to convert his negative into a photo

Tho Boy Scouts of America have
tripled In number In the last eight
months. There are now 4,500 scout
masters registered with the national
organization. On January 1, there
were only 1,400. These facts alone
show that there are three times as
many troops of scouts under the di
rection of the leaders of the Boy
Scouts of America as there were In
the beginning of tho year. While It
Is hard to figure on the number of
boys, yet is is quite probable that the
Boy scouts alone number three times
as many as at the beginning of the
This remarkable growth Is duo to
many reasons. First, boys in every
village, town and city throughout the
country, have read of tho principles
of the scout movement and have ap
preciated how much more fun they
can have under a good trainer or
Scout Master who takes them into
the woods and teaches them various
useful things for play and work.
Secondly, many young men, learning
of the principles of the scout move
ment have become enthusiastic work
ers and have made efforts to organ
ize troops because they are fond of
the activities outlined In the scout
manual. Thirdly, the general Inter
est in the scout organization has
spread over the country gradually
and persistently In the last year and
a half, and there are more Boy Scouts
in America to-day than there are in
any country In the world.
Since the meeting of the National
Council at the White House early In
February, greater interest has been
aroused 'in the movement because
new badges have been turned out for
the boys, a new manual has been is
sued and many things have been done
to appeal directly to the American
Business and professional men also
have taken increased Interest in the
work and have formed local councils
in various cities and towns to super

calities. The scout organization has
