able to give out piano patrons BIGGER VALUE for their

Dr. Fitch Makes
a Positive Denial
Claims Police Have No Evidence
Whatever Against Him in Mill
man Case at Detroit,
DETROIT, Mich., Sept 10. The author!
ties today will continue search for evidence
relating to the death of Maybelle Mill
man, the Ann Arbor girl, who died on an
operating table and whose body was
hacked up and thrown Into Eoorse creek
neaf here. The discovery yesterday of th
missing portion of the body resulted In
complete verification of the theory of the
police that Miss Mlllman met her -death
on a surgeon's table.
Dr. George A. Frltch, arrested In con
nection with the case was still In custody
this morning and no other arrests had yst
been made.
Dr. Frltch was taken before Police Judge
Jeffries today and remanded under 110,000
ball to wait further Investigation of the
case. Dr. Frltch mad a brief statement
to the newspaper men.
In this statement to the newspaper men
Dr. Frltch said:
"My arrest was a great surprise to me. I
do not know that I ever saw th Mlllman
girl, but I think she was In my office two
week ago Thursday night in company with
another girl.
"Several people were waiting and when
their turn cam I Invited th two girls to
enter my private office. Only one of them
came In and she asked me If she might
make an appointment for an examination.
I said that the present time was aa good
as any, but she said she would not wait
then and would call again. We talked for
about three minutes. Nothing was said
about the nature of her ease.
"The following Monday her friend came
and asked if I had seen her. I replied
'No.' I - am not positive, but I think It
was the Mlllman girl who came to see
me. ,
The night of my arrest I told Captain
McDonnell that my arrest wss due en
tirely to my having been arrested In the
Presley cane."
When told that bricks similar to those
with which the body was weighted had
been found In a garage being constructed
at Dr. Frltch's home the doctor said that
undoubtedly cement bags might be found
there also.
Dr. George A. FTltch was tho only per
son under arrest up to noon. Reports
that a-man had been arrested and was
being kept at the county Jail closely
guarded by Sheriff Oaston and his dep
uties are denied by the authorities.
It is reported that County Chemist J. L,

mt Orl.
To th untutored Eskimo a musk ox by
a glacier's brim, a simple musk ox Is to
him, and It Is nothing more. The Eskimo
for musk ox Is not known, but that does
not matter, Calling a muskrat fiber
sibethlcus does not change Its smell. In
respect of site the musk ox Is larger than
a big sheep and shialler than a small
cow about the aise of small Welsh and
Scotch cattle. He wears horns and most
of hi body Is covered with long brown
hair, thick, matted and curly on the
shoulders. There it also thick, woolly
under fur, which Is shsd In the summer,
or what they call summer In the frosen
north. The animal wears the hair to keep
him warm, and It is not eaten, even by
the Eskimo. It Is gregarious In habit,
usually goes In small herds and, though
very short-legged, Is fleet-footed. It Is
almost as timid as a sheep and never
dangerous except when on tries to eat It
A British traveler says: -The cause of
the disagreeable odor which frequently
taints the flesh of these animals has re
oeived no elucidation from my observa
tions. It docs not appear to be confined
to either sex or to any particular season
of the year, for a young, anweaned animal,
killed at Its mother's side and transferred
within an hour to the stew pans, was as
rank and objeotlonable as any." This pe
culiarity would detract from the popular
Ity of musk ox meat among cultured peo
ple, but polar explorers do not mind It
when starving.
Scientists say that In prehlstorlo times.
during, the glacial period, th animal
roamed as far south as Kansas and Ken
tucky, as shown by fossil remains, but
that was millions of years ago, and nowa
day the animal does not leave Its north
ern habitat except on compulsion. Oc
casionally one may be seen In a traveling
menagerie, but It has a homesick and dis
couraged look. Arctic explorers have some
times had to resort to them for food, but
none has ever claimed that they are equal
to spring lamb or corn-fed beef. Dr. Cook
Is reported as saying: "Once Is enough
for any man. I will never return to the
North pole. A slngl experience of the
sort I have passed through will suffloe for
a lifetime." Even the remembrance of
musk ox meat will not lure him back.

Since the Introduction of the eucalyptus
Into California from Australia, Its StUmtB
have been trying to push Its cultivation
by making known the many usee to which
It may be put It Is declared that eucalyp
tus wood Is suited to all purposes, for
which hardwoods are used.
Barring the countless other uses to which,
It Is adapted, as a means to reimburse th
forest supply alone eucalyptus Is Invalu
able to the country. It Is asserted. Then
the eucalyptus are valuable as windbreaks
for orchards and dwellings, for land re
clamation, for conservation of water, Im
provement of climate and aa natural anti
toxin to malarial germs.
Th beauty of the grain, th color and
the texture of eucalyptus rivaling many
species of oak, has led to Its popularity
as a furniture product Offices, and resi
dences havs been finished with th wood,
and cabinet makers and wood workers
throughout th country have been led to
make a practical study of the eucalyptus
wood as a finishing product
Much of the fuel consumed In California
Is eucalyptus wood, which retails at from
110 to $14 a California cord. For fuel the
fastest growing varieties are planted. Of
the kinds planted for other purposes th
weakling trees, limbs and waste are util
ised as firewood.
In house construction, mining timber,
flooring and street paving eucalyptus ha
assumed Importance, and for miscellaneous
uses, for posts, telegraph poles, railroad
ties, piles, bridge timber, wagon tongues,
spokes, handle for Implements and tools,
logs for corduroy roads and Insulator pins
the popularity of eucalyptus Is growing.
Eucalyptus blossoms yield profit to the
beekeepers. An oil is distilled from th
leaves and Is used as a compound for
many medicines. An extract from th
leaves forms th foundation for cough
syrups. Th bud are used In mawln
portlerea and souvenirs.
Efforts are being mads to find a use
for every portion of the eucalyptus tree
even for the bark, which so far I wait.
