;hurch feels the change
Administrations Always Have Do
pressing Effect on Washington
Congregations and Othera.
Washington feels the change of ad-
ministration now and then In numer-
ous little ways. The pastor of a
prosperous church, for example, Is
bemoaning the loas of 60 families
'rora his congregation In the last
ilx months, all families of the Taft
idministration. Like a good, lndua-
rluus shepherd, this man Is hustling
o gain from aome other quarter what
le has lost brcauae the country voted
.he Republicans out and the I)emo-
•rats In. This particular Instance
loes not mean the Incoming adinlnis-
ratlon Is less churchly. For every
jfflcial family that has departed an
jther official family has arrived, and
here are probably 60 new official
amlllea attending church somewhere
;l e In the federal city.
But such things shake up the life
Washington. The grocer loses
customers, and must see to It that
ae gains others. There were man>
ongtlme officeholders here under the
Republican regime. Duration of ten
ire had encouraged them to rent or
auy homes. Departing they vacated
heir residences. The newcomers are
ndined to be more timid about set
ling down A period of hotel life
)r residence In an apartment ifc the
•ulo with them. Consequently it
teems as though there were more va
;ant residence In the fashionable
lortheast this autumn than before
n a very long time.
As a result of this and other like
!ondltions Washington feels a de-
pression. It may be a year before
the city resumes its wonted prosper-
ity. The old gibe about hotel and
boarding house keepers getting all
the money congress and other offi-
cials have to spend was true &0 years
*go, but it Is not now. The disposi
tion In normal times Is for the folk
from away to settle down here in
their own homes and live as house-
holders. The extra session of con
gress lasting all summer and all the
iutumn has contributed something to
the general prosperity of local folk,
but not overmuch. Hotels have got-
ten most of the money.
Creeks Petition For New Leader.

MADE A SLIGHT MISTAKE
Young Congressman Wanted to Rent
Apartment in Mr. MacVeagh s
Representative Perle D. Decker of
Missouri., one of the youngest mem
bers of the house, who is serving his
first term in congress, resides In u
modest but comfortable apartment In
Fourteenth street. Like many other
apartment house dwellers he got a no
tlou that he wanted to move. The
street cars passing his apartment made
a great deal of noise until early morn
ing, and there were other reasons. Kid
lug up Sixteenth (now called the ave
nue of the Presidents) he spied the
palatial home of Franklin MacVeagh.
former secretary of the treasury T he
location Just suited Decker. The ex
terior of the building Indicated that
the ceilings were high and the rooms
Leaving his automobile at the curb,
the congressman approached the en
trance to the MacVeagh home. ll>
first surprise came when he found iln
door locked. In response to his ring |
a uniformed butler op* ;ic*d the door
and asked what was wanted. Decker |
announced blandly that he would like i
to lease an apartment In the building
The butler nearly collapsed. After
recovering his breath he said, with a
great show of indignation:
"Dls am no apartment house. It am
de home of Mlstah*MacVeagh."
MANY VARIETIES OF FLOWERS
They Are Found In All Kinds of Re
ceptacles In Every Section
Flowers are planted in many recep
acles In Washington, but there is n<
use in trying to enumerate them. You
will see many varieties of flower
boxes and flower urns and flower, tubs
as you pass along the residence
In front of 1545 1 street a sheel
iron cylinder has been converted Intc
a (lower box or a flower tank The
cylinder was one of those which may
be seen by the side of a furnace, and
its normal function is to hold water
hot or cold. That is probably what
this cylinder was used for before its
dedication to Flora. The name of the
foundry or the maker may be seen on
the west end of the cylinder.
The tank was cut away on one side
and set horizontally with the open
side up supported by a truss made ol
iron pipes crossed like the legs of a
saw-horse. It was filled with good
■arth and pretty flowers are blooming

junk was Ingeniously put to a poetic
