verses which have given him l'ame.
The Memorial is authorized by con-
Si't'ss, will be of shield shape and prop
fily Inscribed and will he the only tes-
iinonial of the kind in llallimore. The
^1111 evidently regards this as a re-
proach upon the city, and remarks:
'Although Key was a native oT Mary-
and and wrote the national anthem
while he was out on the river at the
imo Fort AlcHenry s batteries repulsed
the British fleet as it was attempting
;o bombard the then tiny city of llalti-
niore, Haltlmoreaus have never given
much thought to honoring the man
who was inspired by the city's gallant
defense to write the ode which has
ulnce been the tune that has stirred
the nation's heart more than once. The
Hun points out that while monument*
and statues have been erected to near-
ly every other hero Maryland has pro-
duced, the memory of Key has been
•trangeiy neglected. This is the more
notable because Ke> has been signally
honored in various other places
throughout the i'nited States, particu-
larly in far-off San Francisco, which
tins a beautiful monument that cost
$60,000. So the Sun calls upon Haiti-
more to do Its duty, and doubtless the
t ummons will be obeyed.

Ro'ler skating is quite an ancient
pastime. It began in the early sixties
with what is known as parlor skates,
having India rubber wheels, as the
thoughtful designer explained, so his
youthful putrons should not injure tlio
drawing room carpet. For a while the
clumsy things were tried and aban-
doned, until Plimpton invented a skate
that could describe a curve on a side-
ward pressure of the foot, and then the
exercise became popular and has re-
mained In favor ever since by fits and
starts. There are seasons for rolling
skating as for tops and marbles and
hall games, but no one can give their
precise dates. It depends on the ea
price of n juvenile neighborhood. I^ct
one agile boy skate along the clear
t-ldewalk, and presently troops of Imita-
tors are rolling after him, cutting all
sorts of capers to egg on the daring lit-
tie girls to the same performance.
Probably In the next century boys and
girls will be roller skating.

some of these birds nest In the trees of
the park and In Trinity cemetery, close
