TO BLOW HIS NOSE
Four "Cracksmen" Keep Stolid
Silence as Police Give Them
the Third Degree.
ACTIONS ARE SUSPICIOUS
The four apparent cracksmen, who
were arrested Monday night by Of
ficer Charles Pipkin and Detectives
Rooncy and Murphy, were all-suffering
from "lockjaw" when interviewed
in the private office of Chief of De
tectives Maloney. No amount of ca
joling or persuasion would lead any
one of the quartet to reveal that he
or his pals were croeks, or ever" saw
each other before. Fred Martin, one
of the number, admitted that he had
made the "soup" or nitroglycerine,
from dynamite that he stole in a Mis
"What were you going touse it
for?" inquired Chief Maloney.
"To blow rriy nose," leering retorted
The chief waved him back to his
cage. The very fact that the men
are taking the attitude of silence, in
stead of attempting to clear the sus
picion against them, is enough evi
dence for the police that they are not
greenhorns in the game. Officer
Anton Francl looked them over this
morning and took an extra look at
Martin. Just what he learned from
his observation will not be revealed
at present, on advice of the chief.
Big Gang Here?
In substantiation of the theory that
the four men taken are not the whole
of the crew, which is believed to be
an organization of considerable num
bers, comes the report to headquar
ters this morning that during the
night cracksmen sawed their wav
through the panels of two rear" doors
into fc.mil lhompson s saloon at 1314
North Twenty-fourth street, blew the
safe and made awav with $113. an
$18 check, diamond ring and other
jewelry. Detective Felix Dolan, who
investigated the robbery, asserted
that the safe door had been blown
open with nitroglycerine after the ap
proved fashion of yeggmen. Rugs and
canvas were used to deaden the sound.
Battle Without Aid
Of Planes as Eighty
Mile Wind Blowing
With the French Army on the Som-
me Front, Nov. 7. (Via Chantilly,
From a Staff Correspondent of The
Associated Press.) The battle today
in the district between Saillisel and St.
Pierre Va'ast wood'was fought with
out the assistance of aeroplanes. The
wind blowing eighty miles an hour
prevented the planes from, ascending
and consequently the artillery fire
trom a hundred berman batteries jls
well as from the French and British
was uncontrolled aerially. Every inch
ot the ibattle- ground was a danger
spot and the correspondent of The
Associated Press and other corre
spondents were compelled to take
shelter in a dugout.
When the French infantVy attacked
a powerfully defended series of
trenches with trench mortars and
grenades, they found a strong garrii
son, which in one part surrendered in
a body with their officers, more than
500 running at a racing pace into the
trench lines and tor two nrtles and a
half to the rear accompanied by only
halt a dozen French guards. It was
a strange sight when they ran -the
gauntlet of the German barrage fire-
at Vaast wood is more than two
kilometers square with many positions
enfilading each other and proved a
most difficult problem for the French.
But french infantry finally rushed the
place and held it with slight .losses.
The battle continued into the night.

Mellificia Casts Her First Vote
And Feels that She is Emancipated
Voting is no "pink-tea" or feminine
sort of diversion. You can't stand
around and gossip a wee bit with
your neighbors or comment on Mrs.
Jones' new bonnet. It's a strictly
business-like affair and the election
officials haven't got any time, to listen
to your tale of leaving the breakfast
dishes unwashed or who your hus
band told you to vote for. I learned
all this when I went to vote for the
School board this morning.
The city "ed." is to blame for my
voting. If he hadn't sent me out to
endless suff meetings, where I drank
in all sorts of suffrage "dope" until 1
yelled "Votes for women" in my
sleep, I wouldn't even have known
that it was my "solemn duty" Jo vote
for the school board, since these are
the only candidates those selfish men
permit women to vote. for.
"I'm gonna vote for the School
board," I announced solemnly to my
"How many children of school age
havejou got? And how much prop
erty do you own?" scoffed my young
brother. You know, at times I am
overcome with dismay at that young
brother. How one of high school
years can have developed into such a
rabid anti is more than I can under
stand. "I ignored the first question in my
most dignified manner, but to think
twice, nay several times, before I an
swered the second.
"You only need $50 worth of prop
erty," I answered with the calm be
gotten by superior political informa
tion. "Well, where is your $50 worth?"
queried that incorrigible youngster.
I answered him not,Tut breezed

the counter. An office hireling came
up to the counter, gave me the "once

breath. Ain't that strange?
"Wanna vote for the school board,"

I could vote.
Charles Evans Hughes will be no
happier when the election returns
come in than I was that moment.
Yesterday morning I got up an hour
earlier than usual, took extra pains
with my hair, laid out a fresh shirt
waist just to meet Mr. Ballot-Boxx.
(Just between ourselves, 1 didn't rec
ognize him when I met him. He
wasn't a hit good-looking and he was
standing in a dark corner in the poll
ing place, so I stumbled over him).
Men Hand Out Cards.
On my wav to labor, I saw a lot
of men handing out cards in front
of a flat that had seen better days. I
didn't think that was the place to
vote, but a sign in front said it was.
so in I went. The passage was dark
and stifling, then I entered a small,
crowded, gas-lighted room where the
voting was going on. Actually 1
never saw so many men crowded to
gether in so small a room.
The election"' officials had their
books all ready and one of them who
got up too late to have any break
fast was eating a sandwich. On two
sides of the room were voting booths
and I had to smother a giggle when
I saw them. The men in voting looked
so funny, like horses each in their own
stall, or else like they had to eat off
the shelf. (You mustn't tell I said

Anyway, a nice, gray-haired man
made me swear that 1 had been over
to the court house to file for that
tax on my books that father gave
me for a birthday present, then someone-
else handed me a ballot and I
went into a booth that didn't nave
a pencil and had to conic back and
borrow some nice man's fountain pen
and go back and vote. It was during
this proceeding that I stumbled over
Mr. Ballot-Box. My, but he was an
unassuming person for all the
speeches that have been spoke about
htm and all the things that have been
written about him, too. I should
think he would have the big head
and be an ornamental, imposing-looking
thing, but he wasn't.
As I said before, there was no time
to waste about that voting place be
cause the room was too small and
there were too many people in it, and
the election officials were too busy,

A Laxative for Babies
Good for , Everybody
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
a Safe and Efficient Fam
livery member of the family is
more or less supjert to constipation
and every home should always be
supplied with a dependable remedy to
promptly relieve this condition.
Whenever the bowels become
clogged and the natural process of
elimination thereby disturbed, the en
tire system is affected and readily
subject to attack by disease. Con
stipation is a condition that should
never be neglected.
Mrs. E. R. Gilbert of Millbro, Va.,
says that Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pep
sin is a splendid laxative for chil
dren because they like its pleasant
taste, and it acts so easily and natur
ally, 'without griping or strain, and
she finds it equally effective for the
rest of the family.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
combination of simple laxative herbs
with pepsin that contains no opiate
or jiarcotic drug. It is mild and gen
tle in its action, and does not cause
pain or discomfort. Druggists every
where sell this excellent remedy for
fifty cents a bottle.
To avoid imitations and ineffective
substitutes be sure you get Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin. See that a fac
simile of Dr. Caldwell's signature and
his portrait appear-on the yellow car
