Ono of the most Interesting chapters
relating to the lalo L , L. Smith and his
gang of sirlndlors was whispered to a re-
poitor for the BEE last cTonlnj ; by tire
younc men who are loaded with facts
and figures to prove all their statements.
It has already baon pro von beyond any
qtiottlon of doubt , that Smith himself
was a ashomcr , adventurer and swindler ,
but now comes to light a story about his
manager , Frank Moiio , that haa about
It the element ] of such deep laid and
well planned raecality that under many
similar circumstances people have boonled
to bollovo that parties whom
they supposed rogues wore
the toola of others and forced to commit
acts they otherwise mii > ht not have com
mitted. This mny bo the cage with L.
L. Smith , because Frank Moho , was and
la undoubtedly , n smooth , alook , and
deeporato villain. In tbla weeks Issue of
the Pollca News , ia a very accurate nnd
life like picture of him , underneath which ,
ho Is denoted as "manager of the Na
tional Loan & Trust company , " n swind
ling banking concern , situated at HO
Washington street , Boston. In this
role , Molso haa figured for a number of
years , as a member of ono of the most
notorious gunga of sharpers this or any
other country was ever polluted with.
They were not only sharper * and con
fidence workers , but arch conspirators
aa well. Their chief occupation
however , was that of , swindling
commission merchants -and bogus pro
duce dealers. The methods cf their op
erations , which were carried on for
years , In Boston and vicinity , was to
adopt a firm name cloatily resembling
that of some well-known and reputable
commission merchant honso ,
and then make oiler. ! above the
current market prices to Induce consign
ments from farmei'J and country ship-
pars. The result waa that hundreds of
confiding countrymen , who shipped
them car load after car load of produce ,
never s&wor received a cent for it. Frank !
Molso , Osmer W. Roper , Uonry W.
Dolson , and James W. Harris , formed
the chiefs of the gang. Roper
it Is said waa the main rprlng of a dozen
bogua produce firms W. H. Holmes &
Do. , American Co-operative Dairy Co. ,
Lowe it Co. , and many others. A lulpor
] f these swindlers in their operations was r
; ho National Loan and Trust company , of
ivhlch Molso was the manager. Roper
las boon arrested recently and convicted ,
md Molso is wanted very badly by the
minorities of Boston. It acorns that a
itronuons effort is now on foot there to
) roak the gang up. Mr. L. A , Bainos ,
vho was the travelling representative of
smith here , returned yesterday from
Chicago where ho had been for
ho past tire weeks trying
o ascertain what ho could.
> f Smiths record and also to see , whether
> r not ho could possibly recover a consld-
irablo amount of money loat by him in
ho Smith failure. Mr. Barnes loarnud
nero about Molso than ho did about
Smith , and having been Molso'a room
nato hero , of course the expose of his
rllllany in Boston , brought to light many
Tnactlons made by Molso , when they
vero together that boars out the history
> f hla crooked career. At ono tlmo says
ilr. Barnes Melee had $8,000 worth of
ino jewelry secreted In their room ,
vhlch was on Capitol avenue , number
' , Mora3 block. His excuse for
mtting it there , waa that it would
> a safer there than any place else.
lo also carried a lot of fine silk to the
coin at various times. Shortly oefore
bo failure all thesa goods were packed
n trunks and Bent away. Barnoi learned
vhllo In Chicago , that Morse has a wife
nd two children living In Brooklyn , and
hat In addition to being a scheming
windier ho Is also at tbo head of a Rung
f professional safe blowers. The picture
f him in this week's Pollca New ? , Is
aally recognized by any ono who ever
aw the man. Mr. Barnes also
: aniod that Smith had been at Lng
iranch since ho left hero. niw

Shall we eat Lime with our Bread ?
It is n f\ct ( 110 longer questioned thnt nil the baking iiowuVrs , with the
single exception of the Roj'al , contnin linio or nlum. Prof. Love's ro-
porbns nimlyst o the Now York Stnto Board oE Ilcnlth , revealing limo
iminirities , and Government Chemist Illotl's researches showing the
alarming use of alum , have conclusively established the presence o
these substances. Eminent analysts have found in some of the powdera
notably these so prominently advertised , 10.7 p3r conk of lime alone.
Everybody is interested in this wholesale debasement of food The
public health is no doubt injuriously directed l > y the largo amount o
limo that is thus taken into the system , for although perfectly pure
food is produced by the use of Koya1 Making powder , which is free from
lime and absolutely pure many of these adulterated baking powders are
ttill imposed upon consumers by the false advertisements with which
they arc placed before the public.
No Jjiine in Jioi/al JtaJfiiiy JLowtlct\
Chemical tests have likewise proved the Royal Unking Powder to bo
free from lime and absolutely pure. This results fiom the exclusive
use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent processes
by which the tortrate of lime is totally eliminated. The production of
chemically pure cream of tartar involved many experiments and great
expense , which add largely , of course , to the cost of producng : the Royal
Baking Powder. But its manufacturers are amply rewarded in thus
being able to give consumers a baking powder absolutely pure iu all re
spects the only absolutely pure baking powder made. In emphasis oC
this fact , the report of Prof. McMurtrie , late chief chemist for the
Uuitsd States Department of Agriculture ab Washington , is given.
"I have examined the cream of taiter manufacture ! by the New York
Tartar Company and uspd by the Royal Baking Powder Company in the
manufacture of their baking powder , and found it perfectly pine and
free from lime in any form.
"The chemical tests to which I have submitted the Royal 13akiug
Powder , it perfectly healthful and free from every deleterious

"I 'spoee you don't remember mo , "
said a man In the park aa ho caino up and
grasped a reporter by the hand. The
volco waa faintly familiar and the speak
er , who was decently dressed , though
evidently not particular about harmoni
ous colors or porfost fit , had a eloachy
movement thnt Indefinitely recalled some
parson ho had met. The nun emiled and
drawled on , " 1 thought you wouldn't
know me ; don't you remember a couple
of winters ago when you'd bo comin' out
of that prlntln' ofliso over there , how you
used to stop and 'buz' mo about what yon
used to call the noble army "of tramps ? I
don't forgot yt > n , air , for when you'd got
through talk In' you'd put up for coueo
and cakes , and more than once for lodg-
In' . I'd bo real glad If you'd go and have
a schooner or cigar or suthln' with mo.
I'm ' faxed , " said ho , pulling out a handful
of coin and bills , "and would like to set
'em up. "
The reporter declined , but upon callIng -
Ing to mind the amaclatod , dilapidated
tramp he had once known , was forced to
Inquire how so nurked a change of con
dition had come about.
"Well , " said ho , "If you won't glvo It
away , I'll tell you though I don't cure
If you do , for I am going weet on the
eorno lay. For the past two years 1'vo
been working the family gatherings

"You BOP , one day last cummer , I was

when I rin ncroes one of those maotiii's.
Well , it must have been must have
baon . What ia't tha. gives them poets

"Inspiration ? " suggested the reporter ,
"Yes , that'n it ; It must have been that ;
ty for all of sadden suthlu' said : 'that'n the
b- racket for you ; ray boy , go icnko tolloro
you're ono of thogan / ' 'You BOP , be
fore I got way down where I was when
you first saw mo I used to "snpo" around
thcatrer ; that made mo think how
'twould bo for ono of them actors to put
ny up such a job. Well , the first lot I tackled
was on abig farm up the North river. I
it , got a piece of blue pencil , made an an
irch chor on my wrist , and pat their name
ch under it , so as to look llko India Ink ,
you know. I had on a Bailor's blue flan

There 1 told 'cm I bad always followor'd

read about the mootln' ani coino to see
if I knew any body of my name.
"Well , they're always jolly and free at
