mum 50 YEARS; .SHE PLAH5 A PP HEROUfB WHO SAVED 18 LIVES HAS NOT HAD NIGHT OFF Df ' HALF A CENTURY. ' Newport, Maroh 21. After more than fifty years of continuous service, during which time sl)e has saved eighteen lives while hghthousekeeper at the Lime Bock lighthouse, Newport harbor, Ida Wilson is considering a short Tacation. . She is the only woman in charge of n American lighthouse, and if she carries out the wishes of her friends and goes away, it will be her fust night away from the light since she . took charge of it, fifty years ago. The old lightkeeper is suffering from nervous! ness and loss of sleep. Last fall she received from the American -Cross of Honor Society at Washington its cross of honor and membership in the order.' She is the first American woman to receive .such an honor. ' Since then she has received a pension from the Carnegie hero fund for saving eighteen lives. She' celebrated her sixty-fifth birthday anniversary very quietly . last month. She is assisted, by her broth-et, Rudolph Lewis, in caring for the lighthouse. Little Donald Gallaher .

"I have used New Discovery seven yeats-and I know it is the best remedy on earth for coughs and colds, croup, and all throat and lung troubles. My children are subject to croup, but New Discovery quickly cures every attack." Known the world over as the King of throat and lung remedies. Sold under guarantee by all druggists. 60c and $1.00.

Appears This Week With Eleanor Robson in "Sa-lomy Jane." Washington, D. C, Jfarch It isn't every actor who cun boast of having played ten roles before he was twelve years old, yet that is what Donald Gallaher, of the Eleanor Robson company, will be able to do in the years to come. This exceedingly clever boy has made one of the most pronounced hits in "Salomy Jane," and is playing the Sol Smith Russell in "A Poor Relation,' and since that time the little fellow .nii.o nr u,m i ,i,r huAa avoc 'role of Nicodemus, in "Nurse Mariorie, in Him,t Tha nit.inr.ln nart nf U i It is the tenth part he has enacted since Mat these rfctims do not realize what h"V stage, debut with the late . sickening thing ; a bad, offensive breath Is to others.

He appeared with Mr. Russell the last season that that actor was before the public, and later joined Annie Russell, as fnnce Charles reruinand, in : A Royal Family." After that he played successively Annie O'Xeal, in "Sweet and Twenty, and with Charles Froh-man's companies, presenting "The Wilderness" and "The Twin Sister." This talented youngster has the further distinction of having been leading man with one of America s most ponu lar players, Millie James, who has since left the stage, but who played opposite Donald in "The Little Princess." Clyde Fitch wrote a clever part for him in "Her Own Way," and later gave him another, Tommy Meens, in "The Girl Who Has Everything." This is one of the plays in which Eleanor Robson was the star and Donald has been with her ever since. allowing for reserve, be used for the bene lit of t lie public but the company should be allowed to retain a patf sufficient to stimulate the most efficient and economical management. As regards public control in the absence of competition the report says: "It is not believed that there is any serious objection to such control, provided it is independent, intelligent, considerate, thorough and just, recognizing, as does the interstate commerce commission in its, report recently issued,' that capital is entitled to its fair return and good management or enterprise to its re-; ward." . The value of telephone service to the subsci4iler is analyzed, and it is shown I that wlnle a connection with the ex change may be termed a convenience forj that subscriber, it is a necessity for all other subscribers. It is the ability to communicate with others which makes the exchange valuable. It is the use of other circuits than your own. The value of any exchange depends on the area covered and the maximum number of desired individuals who can be reached, and life measure of the value depends upon the use of the exchange system as a whole. Rates must be so ad justed that no rate shall bear unjustly on particular individuals or classes, and that at some rate connection with the exchange is within reach of anyone who can add to the value to others of the service, and that, as a whole, the revenue shall be enough to operate and maintain the plant efficiently and give a sufficient return on the capital, In discussing the long-distance service the report calls attention to the fact that during each conversation the circuit is devoted exclusively to the service of the user. Long-distance communications require the presence of the two individuals concerned at the ends of the line, and they ore therefore eon-fined largely to the hours when it is certain that each can be definitely located. The result of this is tlntt the long-distance business is crowded into a very small part of the day, and that much of the time the facilities provided are lying idle. There is no way of crowding the business during the times of heavy demand, as but one message can pass at a time. Diagrams are given showing how irregularly the business is disturbed throughout the day, and the statement is made that if business could be subjected to a half hour's delay the facilities required could be reduced one-third at least. Attention is called to the universality of the Bell system and its occupation of the field, first in the urban districts, keeping pace with the demand, then later in the . semi-urban and rural districts. These smaller communities are being developed both direct! v by the operating companies, and indirectly by local companies connected by toll lines with the Bell system. The change of policy during the year, by which the Western Electric Company now sells standard Bell telephones to all who may desire them, has given a fresh impetus to this branch of the business.

J, XX exchange construction is $114 per ex change station, and the book value of all property, including the long distance lines, is $ioz per station, For' tho first time a statement of the operating companies (that is, those companies which directly furnish the telephone service) is given, with gross earnings of the whole country of $120,-753,200, operating and general expense of $o3,242,300, and maintenance of plant $34,005,700. The balance available for dividends was $26,819,700, out of which dividends amounting to $19.- 200,100 were declared, which seems rea sonable when the value of the plant is considered. President Vail calls attention to the exaggerated stories of the profits made Dy early investors, and snows: how these stories, coupled with the crencral business activity of the last few years, have made it possible for promoters to launch telephone companies pledged to low rates for exchange service and high dividends to investors. Many of these companies .are asking relief from the conditions they readily accepted, and for inereased rates, and reorganizations are now in progress. These companies found that repairs and reconstruction, which with a new plant are at a minimum, steadily increase, and that many times while the plant is growing rapidly these charges are lost in construction. Sooner or later these charges must be provided for out of current revenue, and if dividends, have been . paid without first making adequate provision for maintenance . there can only be an end in disaster., ' Under these conditions it 'would seem as if. any gain to the public i by competition based on low rates bas I not made up for the loss of capital in-i vested. .'

The chocolate cure is drawing many thin women to a certain obscure little town in Germany. It seems to be a nerve cure as well as a chocolate cure, for the people taking the cure are out of doors most of the time enjoying the scenery and exercising a little. Then the patients eat chocolate lots of it and all the time. The secret of the success of the treatment seems to be in the fact that the people become stout in the right places. The arms become plump and round and tne neck and bust nil out gracefully. I The best art of it all is that the cure ' can be taken at home inst as well, and it is strange that people will travel so far out of their way to get such a simple treatment. The treatment consists simply of eating chocolate nil the time ami drinking the beverage in large quantities. - PILE CURE FREE CABBAGE PLANTS and all other plants for the farm, garden and conservatory, at TODD'S Phone 700 GREENSBORO, N.
