All Angora Cats Alike.
It was a valuable Angora cat, but
Sts owner was governed as much by
humane Instincts as appreciation of its
value when she took it to a board
ing place when preparing to start on a
European trip. Though friends offered
to take care of it she felt that her pet
would have even better care in a reg
ular cht home. It was therefore with
considerable surprise and indignation,
a day or so after she placed it in the
hoarding place, that she tan acrbss her

Swiftly she picked it tip and descend

minutes she gave vent to her wrath.

Method of Measuring Ozone.
Before long It Is likely that among
other attractions of a seaside resort
may be, included announcements of
the proportion of ozone in the air.
Experiments hj^ve shown that It is
possible to discover the amount of
ozone in the ail with fair accuracy.
Slips of white blotting paper are
soaked in a solution of iodide of potas
sium and starch. These, projected
from sunshine and rain, are exposed '
to the air for a definite period. Ac
cording to the amount of ozone present
so is the paper colored in varying
shades of yellow. If ozone is abundant
the paper will be of a very deep shade.

r' must be humiliating for thousands
of people to confess that they lads
the will-power to stop coffee.
They know from experience that it re

If you find that coffee harms you;

Steps Taken to Clamp Lid
on Smuggling and
Universal Service Correspondent.
Washington. Oct. 22.—The United
States plans to put an agent In every
brewery and distillery to atop leaks,
and to Increase border patrola suf
ficiently to stop smuggling.
The treasury department an
nounced this Monday as the admin
istration’s plan to enforce the “dry”
The details were made public by
Secretary of the Treasury Mellon
and were said to have the aprroval
of President Coolidge as the logical
means of furnishing the fullest means
of co-operation with the states.
It was revealed for the first time
that the government considers the
number of "dry" agents far inad
equate to cope with the situation and
uiai an additional appropriation will
be asked for this purpose, as well as
for the purpose of enlarging the coast
and bolder patrol.
New York Illustration
In atates where local officials are
not Inclined to oc-operate, or state
laws are In conflict with federal laws,
the government plans to put a suf
ficient number of men to cope with
the situation without local aid. It
was stated. New York was used as
an illustration.
It was said that in a greater maj- ^
ority of the states, the federal gov- *
eminent expects such a full measure
of local co-operation that It will be
able to withdraw a large number of t
"dry" agents and concentrate them
elsewhere. This force also will be
augmented bjfc the additional "dry”
agents which .congress will be asked
to authorize.
The treasury pointed out that by
far the greatest source of liquor sup
plies in the United States Is from
smuggling, and that when this is
cheeked the situation will be well in
hand. It cannot be checked with the
small forces now available. It was
stated, and the coast guard will ask
for additional men and fast small
craft to chase the rum runners from
the American coasts. Along -the'
border it is planned greatly to aug
ment the customs guard for the
same purpose.
Illegal Withdrawals Lgrge.
Next to smuggling it was said the
large sources of supply are the brew
eries and the distilleries, or storage
warehouses. In spite of what the
treasury described as the most ef
fective permit system which can be
worked out, large quantities of
liquors, industrial alcohol, and beer
are illegally withdrawn.
The secretary would place a man
in each brewery to be sure that all
real beer manufactured is dealcohol
ized and that only local permits for
withdrawals are honored.
When this system is perfected, it
was stated, the state and city of
ficials will find that' they will have
only the ‘‘hip pocket” bootlegger to
contend with and he may be best
handled by the local police.
Experts are now at work estimat
ing how much money will be re
quired to carry out the program.

day morning raided the home of John
Hamery, head of Sheriff Findley’s
booztf squad. A quantity of alcohol,
wine and other liquors were confis
cated, in addition to four stills.
The raid, according to officers who
participated, was the result of a tip
that liquor was kept In the basement
at that address. The police, airmed
with a John Doe 'warrant, raided the
home not knowing that it was the
residence of Hamery.
The spirits and aparatus, Hamery
says, had been confiscated by him
and were being stored at the home
until they could be removed to the
sheriff’s booze room.
It- was hinted In the sheriffs office
that the raid might have been an
attempt to discredit Hamery’s record
for political reasons.
“I didn’t think I was so dangerous
that my old political enemies had to
frame me and I hope they didn’t,’*
was the only Allusion Hamery would
make to the alleged political aspects
of the raid.

--** /
Washington, Oct. 22.—Investigation
as to whether the prevailing low
prices being paid for hogs are the re

Senator Reed Forced to
Squelch Former Director
at Hearing
Universal Service Correspondent
Washington, Oct, 22—Col.' Charles
Forbes, former director, .vas silenced
and ordered to take his seat twice
Monday when he dramitically inter
rupted the proceedings of the veterans
bureau investigation ueiore a special
senate committee.
Senator Reed, of Pennsylvania,
-chairman of the committee, warned
Forbes that he would either have to
keep silent until such time as the
committee was ready to hear him, or
absent himself from the proceedings.
The chairman and associate members
of the committee, Senators Walsh of
Massachusets, and Qddle, plalnlyevl
denced their displeasure at Forbes’
Interruptions. Reed made it plain that
he would not tolerate further trans
gressions on the proceedings from the
former director.
Under Heavy Strain ^
Forbes displayed marked agitation,
ehowlng signs of being under a high
nervous tension and retsrained him
self with apparant difficulty. His
Interruptions were to object to the
line of evidence being introduced as
reflecting on hi sadmlnlsiratton of the
bureau, previous to last March when
he retired. He spoke In a highly ex
cited tone and continued talking even
after being ordered to sit down.
The first Interruption came at the
very outset of the proceedings when
Maj. Gen. F. O’Ryan, counsel for the
committee, started reading, a pre
pared statement outlining the case
he Intends to present. The first sen
tences of this statement declared:
“During the year 1922 and the early
part of 1923 the United States veter
ans’ bureau was not functioning ef
fectively. Great sums of money were
being expended for the relief of the
disabled veterans.”
When O'Ryan reached this point.
Forbes, seated at the opposite end of
the long counsel table, Jumped to his
feet and entered an objection. He
was told he would be given^ an op
■Jtortunlty to be heard at the proper
time. He Insisted fgi his objection
being recorded, asserting that he had
come 3,000 miles to defend himself
and Ills administration.
Forbes Not cin Trial
Chairman Reed replied that this
was not a tVlal of Colonel Forbes or
any other individual, adding:
"if any person is reflected on in
the course of these hearings that
person will be given opportunity to
explain or contradict any evidence.”
•Forbes again Injected himself into
the proceedings late in the afternoon
when O’Ryan was presenting evi
dence concerning certain employes on
the bureau payroll who, he asserted,
were there apparently for the sole
purpose of providing them with Jobs.
O’Ryan was questioning Brig. Gen.
Frank T. Hines, present director of
the bureau, concerning the employ
ment of FVancis B. Smith, or Cali
fornia, who- he declared was on the
payroll as a consulting architect at
$2,800 a year from August 2?. 1922 to
April 2. 1923, during whleh time it
was alleged he rendered service to
the bureau of only a Mv hours on
two occasions.
Asked to Keep Quiet
Senator Walsh inquired who em
ployed him. Forbes leaped to his
feet and replied:
“I employed him.
O’Ryan declared he was frank to
say he believed Smith was put on
the payroll “merely to give him a
Forbes, still standing and viably
agitated, Interjected:
“He Is a consulting engineer mak
ing $25,000 a year and was consulted
a number of ‘times.”
O’Ryan turned to Chairman Reed
and vigorously objected to the inter
iHipttons from Forbes. R$ed said to
“Colonel Forbes, we will have to
ask you to keep quiet. As we’ve told
you before, you will be given an op
portunity to be heard.”
"But the evid.)ice all seems to bo
directed against my previous ad
ministration.” Forbes rejoined, add
ing: “I came 3,000 miles to attend
sel is representing that everythin*,
that has been done to Improve the
bureau has been accomplished' by
General Hines. I hold that I accom
plished what he says he has brought
Chairman Reed evidencing impa
tieace and with a tone of command,
said to Forbes:
“We can’t have any further inter
ruportions from you. You must sit
^ and remain quiet until you are
given an opportunity to be heard.”
Forbes took his seat, nervously
mopping his brow. Throughout the
day he took copious notes on the
evidence introduced.
