April 4. — The House of Representatives has done the hojiorablc thing by Miss Daphne Webb of Spencer. N. C. Now If the Senate kindly will shake, its legislative stumps and agree to the appropriation, Daphne gels a new piilr of nylons. Ajid why not? The Government ruined her old pah; It came within a hair of ruining Daphne, too, with one of its postal trucks. Slic arrived jn Washington to be a clerk al Hie War Department when, bang, the Iruck smacked her. She put in a bill for three weeks' wages while she was recovering frojn her bruises, $3 to clean the mud from her dress. $44 lo pay her doctor and. among other things, $1-35 for her nylons, .which were lotal wrecks. Her Uncle Samuel did licr $150 worth of damage; the House passed the Daphne Webb law. The Senate will debate it in another roii- ple of weeks. Then maybe Daphne gets her new hosiery.
