He should have remembered the ad vertising jingle: Don't theo wed for money, friend, for money hath a sting, Don't thee wed for place or fame, 'tis but a foolish thing; Don't theo wed a pretty face, 'twill disappoint thy hope But when thee marries, choose a girl who uses soap.. Self-defense Is the plea on which a pretty husband slayer Is acquitted in Norwich, New York. Any plea will do, but this isn't quite so raw as the brainstorm hypothesis favored by most gnllunt jurymen. "To four executions, $150 each, $000." is the bill New York State hasn't yet paid, John Hulbert being the creditor. On electric chulr service current rates prevail, which is a rather grewsome reflection. Senator Smoot, having had much matrimonial experience himself, smiles on his son who runs away to get married. A Utah man Is no more likely than George Bernard Shaw to exaggerate the Importance of a mere ceremony. By a curious will a New Yorker, who was divorced by his first and second wives, ignored the former and gives the latter a life Interest In $100,000. His widow gels $100,000 outright. That he bad a balanced mind Is self-evident. The United States Senate posses an amended Btirsum Bill to take the place of the pension measure vetoed by the President. This one will only cost $78,000,000 the first year. Noth ing less than a billion in the extravagance line Impresses our American lawmakers. Four I. W.- W. men are let out of Leavenworth on a promise to come back In sixty days and be deported. Three fellow prisoners scbrned the same terms and are not pardoned. Their faith in the flexibility of the President's announced purpose Is In teresting. New Jersey Is solemnly prosecut ing a woman accused or being a witch. Though the venerable statute is still on the books, our guess is that she will escape hanging or burning. In any case, Governor Silzer, who Is distinctly a modernist, will hold a pardon in reserve. "You must never telephone, write. call on, look at, talk to or molest the young woman," were the severe terms of a suspended sentence al ternative imposed on a love-sick youth by Magistrate Sweetser in the Yorkvllle Court. Jn other words his eyes are under an injunction, which s rather a novel tiling even in sus pended sentence extra-legalities. PHILADELPHIAN ADDS RARE ART GEMS TO COLLECTION (By Cable to The Brooklyn Eagle and Phila. Ledger; Copyright, 192i.) Paris, Feb. 2 The Paris art world is greatly interested in an exposition of paintings and sculpture of the impressionistic, post-impressionistic and extremely modern French schools acquired recently by Dr. Albert C.J Barnes of Philadelphia for his Merlon niuseum. The collection has just been placed on view at tne Paul ouniaume gal lery, and Includes works by Renoir, Van Gogh, Manet, Matisse, Redon and many others. Unusual elements of the exhibition arc a large collection of primitive African sculptures and a group of canvases by Soutine, a young Russian painter discovered in Paris by Dr. Barnes. Soutine's work Is apt t- shock staid e.rttstic sensibilities, as his subject resemble persons about to fall to pieces. MY TREETOPS They rise In glory into air, Untamed and unafraid; Though winds Awirl madly,, they ride out, flie great Storm Maker's raid. They care not for the cruel ice, That flings Us curse upon Their sinews; Oh, my treetopa, you're Brave fighters, every one! Ah, ye read Ptanies to nie Lessons and psalters, grand, As glorious, in scorn of storms Unbowed, untamed, you stand, Can I not weather out the storms Of life, then, if a tree. Sore pressed, sore buffeted, sore tried, ho brave and strong can be HELEN CHASE. Boston Symphony Orchestra Is It possible Unit Pierre Monteux has been consulting Couo in Boston along with Mary Garden? Certainty his programs are getting better and better, if not day by day then month by monlh. It is a long time since such a wealth of noble music has been assembled for a single evening as that which his Boston Symphony Orchestra gave for Its third Brooklyn concert at the Academy last evening. The one possible criticism is that the program was a little too long, so that even enthusiasts were tired before the end. Two hours of serious music is enough for most people. The opening was Beethoven's Eighth Symphony with Its enchanting second movement. That is not too long, and was the more welcome because it is not. played as often as some or the others, and its refreshing measures fell upon waiting ears. Then came Kmetana's tone poem. The Moldau." which so vividly pictures the flow of a river from its sparkling current as a mountain rill to its mighty sweep as a great river. This Is a tone poem that neels no program and Its picture Is rein', forced with attractive melody und witii ingenious nnd varied orches tral development. Then came the novelty of the evening, Brahms' seldom heard vio- in concerto, played by Georges Kncsco, a New York musician whose name has been familiar as a com-pflser on orchestral programs for several years, but whose face was new to a Brooklyn audience and who in fact has played very little as a soloist. He has none of the display tricks of the hardened soloist, leaving his performance to stand by Its Interpretation of the music. How well he met that test was shown by the fact that he captivated his audience with a concerto which is long, constantly elevated In tone and which most violinists have left severely alone, probably because it affords so little opportunity for personal display. Now that Mr. Enesco has shown that an audience can be made to enjoy Brahms at his beat, it is to be hoped that we shall hear the work oftoner. We can hardly hope to hear It to better advantage than lass evening. The close was a grouping of several fine passages from Wagner's "Ring" music, which served to remind the audience what a monumental and Inspiring work that is, just as the first opportunity to hear It complete r Funny Side to Paris9 Delay In Ratifying Treaties By WYTHE WILLIAMS. (By Cable to The Brooklyn Eagle end Phlla. Ledger; Copyright, J923.) Paris, Fob. 3 Washington Con ference treaties, according to n rumor, were t,o be reported In the French Parliament yesterday. As is often the case, the rumor was Inexact; the treaties are still being "studied" In the committee and according to the best Information It will be another three weeks 'or a month before they are placed upon the order of the day In the Chamber of Deputies. The reason for the latest delay is humorous. Several months ago when the treaties were being juggled from committee to committee In the gentle art of buck passing while France waited to see what the others did first Premier Polncare decided something had to be done in order that there might be no suspicion of strained thoughts much less strained' relations with the United States. Whereupon he cabled Am bassador Jusserand to obtain from the State copies 40 copies three volumes each of the Conference de bates for the use of the 40 members of Chamber Commission of Foreign Affairs which would make a final report. The Washington Conference had already taken place a year back and the French deputies did not follow REPLIES TO H. A. WISE WOOD Rabbi Lyons Resents Attack Upon Element in Jewish Population. Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle: I desire, to compliment sour brief but appropriate treatment of Henry A. Wise Wood in his defense of the Lusk schools laws. That he stands for the Lusk laws is his private affair, but that he makes a gratuitous attack upon a large element of the Jewish population is of general con cern, especlallyat this time, when the need in American life is harmony In place of division. There are objectionable characters among Jews of foreign national extraction. Why not? Why should non-Jews have a monopoly of moral and' other delinquencies? Such shortcomings among Russian and Polish Jews are open to condemnation, it is true, but they should also be pitied. These individuals arc victims not yet completely recovered from the demoralizing Influences of a Russian regime from which they fled to the finer hospitality and opportunity of American life. To speak of these people In sweeping generality to the effect that they are trying to Inaugurate Russian conditions here is to proclaim oneself, as the critic In the present Instance has done, as more woody than wise. I know the Russian and Polish Jews better than Mr. Wise does. They are In general a thrifty, industrious and ntellectually keen people, with great spiritual possibility which will -(-flower and fruit beneficently If they are given that kindly encouragement of opportunity and environment to which as recent accessions to American life they are entitled. The ob- ectionable elements among Jews, the more advanced type of Jew, whos number in American life Is legion, deplores more than does anybody else the unfair treatment of such de linquents by the illogis of many thoughtless Americans. Men of the prominence and abil ity of Henry A. Wise Wood ought to speak more cautiously In criticism and avoid what you have well-characterized as "gratuitously Irritating" an attack on the Jews of New York State. As one of the Jewish people, I want ho special favors for them. demand, however, that they and all others of any denomination whatever n American life be treated with that hospitable consideration and helpful co-opcratlon consistent with a genuine Americanism and Christianity that shall enablo them In a reason--able time to gain and hold a place amid the best elements of our citizenship. Such a result Is moro likely In response to a considerate treatment than to such carping criticism as has been Indulged In by the Inflamed thoughtlessness of Mr. Wood. Your dlgnlfled.'and at the same time trenchant, treatment of the gentle-man will meet with the delighted approval not only of all Jews but of all fair-minded Americans. I personally am grateful for this your latest evidence of fairness which you so frequently exhibit. RABBI ALEX. LYONS, Ph.D., Eighth Avenue Temple. Bruoklyn, N. Y., Feb. 2, 1923. A Letter From H. A. Wise Wood, Editor Brooklyn Dally Eagle: , I should like to add, .If you will permit me, to what I said on Wednesday at the hearing in Albany on behalf of the Lusk. antl-sedltlon laws which It la proposed to repeal, about those of the Russian and Polish Jewish groups In this city who are now being mlstauKht with respect to our institutions, to their damage and our owji. These, which comprise for the most part Russian-Polish Jewish groups who have forsaken their qwn faith, are being taught by certain of their leaders, and by a group ot renegade Americans, that our institutions are not beneficent, but evil; since the war is about to be offered In New York. The combination in cluded the awakening of Brunnhllde, the Rhine journey and the climax from "Gotterdammorung" with many of the most stirring moments In the two closing works of the trilogy. H. O, CONCERT AND OPERA Yesterday afternoon at the Phil harmonic concert at Carnegie Hall. Mr. Mengelberg repeated the Erolca Symphony, and Frederick Lamond clayed the Brahms B flat piano con certo in a tnuslcianly style. The program closed with a stirring presentation of the Melstersingor Pre- lude. At the opera, at a benefit for the Reconstruction Hospital, "Rome"o and Juliet" was given with Edward Johnson as Romeo. The American tenor mado a splendid Impression as the romantic hero. In the evening "Ernanl" was given with the voclf. erous Titta Ruffo as Don Carlos, and the velvet-voiced Ponselle as Elvira. . W. H. HUMISTON. It too closely anyhow, so admittedly they were ignorant of the details. Therefore, they needed this im portant treatise In order to Wake their findings. Instead of the 40 copies ordered, AmDussauor jusserand only man aged to dig up three. There was consternation in the Chamber Com mittee and those tiree copied are sun oeing passed around. JSven Georges Leygues, chairman of the committee, is without a copy i obviously nothing definite can be done. However, It is certain results have been accomplished despite the dif ficulties attendant upon the clrculat lng library. The Pacific accord has been ratified in the committee and the disarmament clauses are still under examination. M. Leygues thinks the three copies of the conference debate will all have been In everybody's hands in another fortnight. After that at least another week will be necessary for the committee to debate and report on the matter to the full chamber, whereupon, according to the committee's opinion, Premier Polncare will suggest certain modifications In the disarmament pact. Afterward the entire program outlined at Washington will receive the official approval and blessing of the Parliament of France. not free, but oppressive, and that the Jewish people must prepare to take their part In a class war aimed at the overthrow of our government, In order to obtain the justice and freedom for which they came to the United States. These racial groups, who have been surrounded at home with conditions of indescribable misery, are naturally suspicious of all authority and therefore furnish material of too inflammable a nature to be left unprotected in the hands of native and other Incendiaries, who wish to destroy our Institutions. For these reasons I plead on Wednesday for the retention of the Lusk laws, which are now serving to ic-strain teachers in the public schools from misusing their powers to teach the principles Of "Bolshevism" instead of our own, and to curb certain private schools which are being cleverly conducted- under the guise of "Institutions of learning" for the same purpose. HENRY A. WISE WOOD New York, Feb. 2, 1923. INSTALL 15 NEW MEMBERS. Fifteen new riiembers were installed last night, at a regular meeting of Lovell Posit, American Legion, in the U. S.

Up to the present tlmo, the sales have amounted to more than $3,000. The amount of money necessary to make the purchase is $20,000.
