Every father of. small boys has been familiar with this remedy for many years, and many a precocious youngster has prescribed it for himself on sunny days when his throat was too sore to allow him to go to school. It never fails to cure. Its use in hospitals, however, is limited to Belle? vue and Allied Hospitals, where for sixteen years the circus never has failed to make little cripples forget their iron braces, while tiny sufferers from tuber? culosis have no time to cough while the clowns and elephants are perform? ing in the oval space under the elm tree in Bellevue's front yard. At yesterday's performance there were many children from other hos? pitals where the circus tradition has not been the common talk of the wards for.

the last three weeks. Some of the wan-faced little strangers who were brought to Bellevue all wrapped up in steamer rugs had never seen an ele? phant at close ranee before, and when Jocko the monk, in his friendly way, stretched out a glad hand to five-year old Angelica Testa there was a terrific shriek. Katie Shy's Hour of Pride Then came the proudest hour in the entire hospital career of Katie Shy, a six-year-old sufferer, from infantile paralysis. "He won't hurt you, baby," she re? assure! the howling visitor, while Jocko transferred his attentions to some groups of safely grown-up boys. Katie's confident manner and the way she limped after Jocko on her agile little crutches and brought him back to shake hands with the now hilarious Angelica made her the most admired personage in all hospital society.

Katie has seen the circus three times and she and Jocko were old friends. Huttlinger, of Brooklyn, at 11 o'clock yesterday morning in the Lady Chapel of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Mrs. Jo? seph D.

Sweeney was the matron of honor and Miss Jeanne Simon, a cousin of the bride, the maid of honor.

Fewer Ex-Soldiers Idle Unemployment Problem Settled, Except in Eastern States From The. Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, April ployment among former service men is gradually decreasing, survey by the War Department discloses. Lieutenant Colonel Mathew C. Smith, head of the Service and Information branch of the War Department, who has been aiding "I fink dat monkey remember me," she confided proudly to her nurse. "Come again next year, Jocko." "You don't expect to be here to see Jocko next year, do you Katie?" the nurse gasped, "You've been here three years.

That's enough for on? little girl." Katie looked sober. "I'd like to see Jocko again," she Baid, "but if I was all well and went home maybe my papa would take me to the real circus? Do you s'pose he would, Miss Mary?" Discussion of this joyous prospect was interrupted by more howls from Henrietta, who was having spasms all over again at the sight of the big olephant sitting on his trainer. After that Katie Shy constituted herself the official comforter to the younger children, and in a loud tone of voice introduced each act with a statement of reassurance, such as: "No, that doggie won't bite you. that man didn't hurt himself. 'He likes to fall down." AU Patients Feeling Better The administration of the circus tonic took more than two hours, and at the end of that time, what with all tha spring sunshin? pouring down on their little white faces, and the laughter that had driven the pain lines from their eyes, every one of the 3,000 patients was pronounced much improved.

There were a good many doctors in i white coats and nurses in blue dresses, who had taken their own medicine, too, on the verandas over? looking the circus. The circus folks themselves said there was nothing like a visit to I Bellevue to brighten the dull monotony of their lives, so that made it unanimous. In addition to Jocko the monkey, the circus program, included clowns, elephant actors, lariat manipulators, a troupe of trained pigs seals, perch performers, comedy acrobats and gymnasts. soldiers, said to-day that in the last four weeks 22,589 former soldiers and sailors were registered for work and 19,170 were placed. In many cities the employment bu? reaus have been discontinued as the need or them no longer exists.

In the Eastern states and New England, how? ever, there is still something of a i problem. Four weeks' figures for this section show 10,030 men registered at thirty bureaus and 7,088 placed at work.

Asks Patched Exponent of Savannah The widely heralded parade of the Jevotces of denim fizzled out with a sickly sputter half an'hour after it had been scheduled to start-from Columbus Circle yesterday morning.

The pro? cession was then three blocks south of the circle in Seventh Avenue. At that point the detachment of household economists sent over by the circus developed a severe case of ment and left the parade, flat on its overalls at the corner of Fifty-fifth Street. When it started the parade was almost 175 persons and five ani? mals It took two minutes to pass a given point and was greatly ad? mired by all who could find it. The cii'cus detachment was an im? posing feature. Three elephants, two camels and the giant comprised the In order to avoid mistakes one of the elephants had blue denim( pants on his front legs and in his eyes' was the look of baffled rage worn by a man who has paid his income tax.

Giant Gazes Into Vacancy. The giant was the first one to grasp the awful, utter hopelessness of it all. He is eight or nine or ten or something feet tall, and from his elevation in the rear he was able to observe the tre? mendous spectacle in -its entirety. It was spread out before his gaze in all its majesty and might. Giants are notoriously soft-hearted, and the amaz? ing sight was too much for the big fellow.

At the corner of Fifty-fifth Street the climax came. A little man, who was dragging behind him a "Down With the Profiteers" sign three times his own cubic area, ran breathlessly around the corner and accosted the giant. "Hey, big boy," he said, "where's this here parade?" The giant waved an all-embracing fist almost as large as the Grand Cen? tral Station in the general direction of South Ferry. "This," he said, "is it." Then and there he resigned. "Get me two taxis," he said to his valet.

"I wish to return to the Gar? den." The defection of the giant from the cause was followed by the withdrawal of the elephants and the camels, after which practically all there was to the parade was the chorus lady who wore an evening gown of calico designed to demonstrate the possibilities of econ? omy in regard to quantity of material used. It is doubtful if ever before a demonstration so elaborately adver? tised has achieved so complete a fluff Instead of six bands there was one, and it was silent, possibly through a fitting of respect for the sombreness of the occasion. School and college delegations where they could be identified were composed of on? or two individuals. The rest was quartet of automobiles almost ob? scured by flapping signs, advertising this or that theatrical attraction or film corporation. A few ch'Idren in their play clothes filled in the odd corners.

A patched party who bore a sign reading "The beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia with you all," appeared to be uncertain of his exact whereabouts. "Are you sure this is the parade?" he asked from time to time after the fashion of one who ex? pects to wake up almost any minute and find that it was all a dream. A Conscientious Parade It was a conscientious parade. In no single detail did it adhere to the advance notices, not even in the de? tail of routing. It had been announced that the route would be down Broad? way to Thirty-fourth Street, to Fifth Avenue, to Central Park.

Instead the marchers assembled in Eighth Ave? nue, walked down Eighth Avenue for a while and then crossed over and walked up Broadway for a period. The. spectators outnumbered the paraders by about 1,000 to 1. Many would-be spectators searched Manhat? tan for hours and then went home without seeing a thing. Many more who watched the little group pass stood around for half the day waiting for the real parade to come along.

A Dobbs Shirt and a Dobbs Skirt complete a rect costume, for outing. Six-twenty Avenus a Senat This Denim Parade Was a Real Success Thomas E. Rush, Surveyor of the Port, ordered several customs inspectors into overalls yesterday to parade without ostentation to the foot of Montague Street, Brooklyn, and search the Ward I liner Monterey for contraband i liquor and drugs. The disguised inspectors searched the vessel from bilge to bridge, even shift in the coal in the, bunkers, and i paraded back to the Surveyor's I office with 200 bottles of whiskey and 75 boxes believed to contain I morphine and cocaine.

I I for clothes took one gasping look at the show and dashed back into their stores shouting for Jake, the window I dresser, to come quick. By noon Broadway was full of perspiring card i writers hastily readjusting prices up- I ward before some customer should take mean advantage of them. Work? ers who had feared that the overall i boom would boost the price of jeans I returned to their homes serene and i content. i It was an inspiring display for the garment trade. No IS etc Clothes Club Seeks Smith as Member ALBANY, April Smith is to be asked next Tuesday to sign a pledge.

The No New Clothes Club of Albany, with a membership of more than 3,000 men and women of this city, including thirty or more members of the Legislature, has designated a com? mittee to meet the Governor next week to urge him to become a member. The object of the club is to drive down the high cost of clothing. Miss Marguerite L. Smith, Republi? can member of the Assembly from New York, became a member to-day. Farrar Is Bombarded With Floral Bouquets Prima Donna in Last Appear? ance of Season Receives Numerous Tributes Farrar was bombarded with flowers yesterday afternoon when she appeared for the last time this season at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Mme. Farrar, who san? the title in "Tosca," was pelted with about ten bouquets at the end of ths first act, and a similar number at the end of the second act. The appearance of the handsome prima donna in response to a curtain call after the first act was the signal for the shower of flowers to begin. Scotti, who appeared in his familiar rol? of Scarpia, and who sang the part of Cavaradossi, were kepi busy gathering in the bouquets, which appeared to come from all directions and all altitudes. After the second act, when the task of picking up the bouquets fell to Scotti alone, he was kept very much on the go seeing that they were all t'elivered.

D'Angelo sang the role of Angelotti, and the remainder of the was: Malatesta, as the Sacristan; Bada, as Spolctta; Reschiglian, as Scianrone; as the jailer, and Arden a- the shepherd. Moranzoni, as conductor, was called before the curtain with thf principals after the second act. Opera Season Ends In Applause and Floral Tributes Matinee Devoted to "Tosca" and Farewell Demonstra? tion for. Miss Farrar; "Oberon" in the Evening The twelfth season of opera under Mr. Gatti-Casazza and the thirty-fifth season at the Metropolitan Opera House came to an end yesterday.

The last subscription matine? was devoted to a performance of "Tosca" and a fare? well demonstration for Miss Farrar the latter being as obviously prcar ranged as the former, though less tri- umphantly carried out. Bouquets were thrown over the footlights when the prima donna showed herself, but thriftily so as to make as many calls as possible, and diligent effort raised the number of calls to eighteen twenty, which, we believe, was some? what less than the desired number though all the familiar devices were' resorted to, from a patter of hands apd hands unaccustomed to gloves to the war-whoops of the trained and the cheers of the innocent tees. At length came the also familiar scene of the lady appearing in her dressing robe and, since it had to be, making a speech of gratitude for the' past and hope of the future, with mod? est appreciation of the encouraging ap? probation received during the season ending. "Official thanksgiving," she re? marked, "comes in November, but tho thanksgiving at the opera house at the end of April." came more ap? plause, the curtain fell and the sub? scription season flickered out. In the evening there was nothing to stir amicably excitable natures except a good opera, "Oberon," well per? formed, by good artists, headed by Miss Easton in the part of Rezia, which hat generally belonged to Miss Ponselle, and Mr.

Kingston as Sir Huron in place of Mr. Martinelli, who has never sung the music with either the heroic style or voice which the Englishman put at the service of the opera cast last night There was also an unexpected substi? tution of Giovanni Martino for Mr. Rothier as Charlemagne, and en un? expected substitution, an extremely feeble one, of Miss Edna Kellogg for Miss Delaunois as Puck. The climax of the evening was reached by Miss Easton'? singing of "Ocean, thou mighty monster," was a splendid piece of vocalism, thrilling in its breadth and intensity, perfect in declamation and diction, the work of an intelligent, gifted and de? voted artist. Galli-Ciirci Sale Ends Sale of tlu effects of Amelita Curci, prima donna of the Chicago Opera Company, which has been run? ning for three days, was concluded yes terdav afternoon at the Smith Knick? erbocker Salesrooms, Fifty-third Street and Seventh Avenue.
