DECKER WANTS STORAGESPACE New Automobile License Plates To Be Stored in Court House Cellar “ You haven ’ t written about everything,\ comments my Scan- dale correspondent. I don ’ t know how to take her remarks, as compliment or censure. Sometimes It seems to ms as though .rye written about everything a couple of Umes. saying each thing the same time; other times It seems to me that I ’ ve never sryttten about anything signi fi c a nt — because, after all. some of my raadsrs era sensitive. But I'm not sure whether this woman means I couldn't possibly thing up some of the things shs can. or whether I have, in the final analysis, a nles sense of reticence. She means. In this particular Instance, that I've not written about sleeping outdoors — It's one of those things thst never oc ­ curred to me. I'd look so odd on the sidewalk, between the auto ­ mobiles that stand peering patiently In through tbe first floor windows snd tha little repressed patch of lawn that makes a brave struggle for existence — or sleeping sltUng up In tbe car lean ­ ing on the wheel, awakening each time my bead nodded sufficiently to bump it Those are tbs reason! I may not have thought of aleeplng out of doers. I You will notice, as you read what this correspondent write*, that she Is blessed beyond tbe usual run of people. She haa a hammock — which Impllee wide open spaces, either of porch or lawn. We who live In apartment house* wouldn't even thave a place to park on* of the old-fashioned kind of hammocks. X do think that sometimes, perhaps on a lonely evening. I'd like to stretch the hammock out In my living room — from bookcase to secretary, or table to divan — and sit there contemplating It, ;nus ­ ing on moons snd midnights Tong forgotten. However, this Isn't my story — but bet's After reading what yhe writes I am more than ever convinced that , sleeping outdoors ,1s one of the things I'd never write of. If I can muster up suf ­ ficient strength of mind I don't even think of it again. It Is only The Gloucester hammock was out under the trees. *Tke lawn Is higher than the road and elopes down away from ft. so that the the ewlng was not to be seen from the road. The stars looked gravely down. Tbe tree* looked dim snd quiet. It was a very friendly sort of night and the rooms were baking. Thar* wasn't even an alternative. I retired on the Gloucester hammock, armed with a pillow and a kimono. Coolness came up out of tbe earth despite Its cooked stats — a dry cool. Coolness descended from tbe trees. Coolness came down In froety light from the star points. A long meteor with a fringed tall did not seem like fire. There aren't any mosquitoes this season — all the crawling things are ejther dead or are aestivating underground. They certainly aren't hibernating. Bnakes couldn't climb up my eteel supports — and anyway I ’ m sure they ’ ve gone to a cooler dime. There didn't seem to be one thing in the world to be afraid of. So there I slept under the stars of Westchester county. There gets Into brain as you sleep out of doom a feeling of rhythm, as If the earth were bearing you along In stately, uncaring fashion but still tenderly — and as if tbe harmony of tih* stars had some ­ thing to do with It. and all tpat. It's a most restful feeling. A stats of mind known in baby ­ hood comes back — a feeling that all's well with the world and one le cared for. The locusts make a filling for tbs nerves of bearing — ~ Just enough so that these nerves are not searching for eome small sound or other. Much.the same feelings of peace and dependence are experi ­ enced on shipboard. There is the rhythm of the ship's movement — the same feeling of .depending on some watchfulness, th* same trust In It. I thought vaguely of cate and dogs — prowlers. Not that they would damage me — only disturb m«. But what happened was neither cats nor dogs. As I felt the puls* of th* kindly earth and felt the world-peace that would eome to us when all sleep out of door*, a blood-stopping whoop began and kept on and went out and began louder than before. It gurgled and gargled and died away and wouldn't stay stopped. It came near and went off. Just as an age-old Instinct told me It was an owl. terrifying th* tiny .wandering field mice ao that they frose and let him eplkt them. It was all over. I couldn't User the locusts any more, for listening for more owl*. They could have eaten the — I shouldn't have moved any more than the mice. But even fear does not llv# long under the star-wink — *« I fell Into the sleep of the hill* one# So pretty soon I began to think a squeaky trolley car ing down a hill towards me — that would be a screech owl la not half bad — rather amusing. In particular little ball of brown Buff was tireless. He screeched and would not leave off his demonstration, bigger owl had eaten all the night's game. Straight over my head flew a lighted lane, so close to earth that the motor was harsh. It silenced the owl and seemed to balance him. A world where the air is full at ones of oWla and aeroplanes cannot be so bad, after all. It Is a little savage, still, add so there are owl# — It Is quite technically civilised, hence the aeroplanes. Next there was a paleness, and a white-milk-truck gliding soft ­ ly through It Tbe trees stood out darkly against a j>al# sky — tbs ■tars had gone to visit the little children of th* East — or anyway, they weren't there. There was no more night But there still tbe locusts. But eventually I arose and walked through th* cjjol grey light and \ reminiscent of mottvhalla seemed to have really a violent for breakfast would have been simply grapes from the day resumed Its normalcy — telephone rang — th# spell was good old Institution after alL yielded the night to memory — and began to consider th* day's PROFIT AND LOSS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN HOME-MAR.
