Psciulo Cousin of
President Faces a
Long Prison Term
Self. Styled "Secretary" to
Harding Due for Trial on
Number of Separate
He Was Warren's Cousin,
Until Officers Got Him
Chicago, ,pril 4. While Everett
A. Harding:, self-styled "cousin of
our president and li is confidential
secretary," spent Sunday in the comi
ty jail at Woodstock, 111., where he is
held on charges of impersonating a
government official, secret service of
ficials were digging into his activi
ties. 'Mouths before the republican con
vention in Chicago, young Harding,
the agents discovered, was taking
an active part in "Cousin Warren's'!
candidacy, representing himself on va
rious occasions as manager of Har
ding's campaign, and even at that
early date making promises of pa
tronage. During the presidential primary
campaign in Indiana, Everett first
attached himself to "Cousin War
ren." Prior to that he had been
active in support of both General
Wood and Governor Lowden. but
when Senator Harding filed as a
candidate in the Hoosicr state,
"Cousin Everett" immediately trans
ferred his allegiance and went to In
dianapolis, where he represented
himself as the senator's campaign
manager and held conferences and
laid plans with leading politicians.
His stay in Indianapolis was brief,
however, as word of his activities
reached Harry R. Daughcrty, Sen
ator Harding's national campaign
manager, and Mr. Daugherty has
tened to the Indiana capitol. The
nature of his interview with "Cou
sin Everett'' has not been made pub
lic, but immediately after this meet
ing Everett came back to Chicago
and subsided until the Harding cam
paign headquarters were opened
here. This time he attached hini-
tc . . 1 i . :.. ..
PIU III UCctUlJUtll ICl 5 III an auvisui y
capacity" as he expressed it to his
friends. He made many suggestions
and conferred with anyone who
would listen to him.
Harry Ruddnick, a volunteer
worker in the. Harding cause, wrote
a letter offering his services and
this letter fell into the hands of
"Cousin Everett," who wrote Rudd
nick, urging him to come to head
quarters at once and go to work,
assuring him he would be paid lib
Ruddnick thought this rather
"spectacular inasmuch as he had of
fered his services free. When he
went to headquaters and met the
real officials, they decided it was
time to suppress "Cousin- Everett"
before he did something that would
reflect seriously upon Senator Hard
ing. The matter was taken un with
Harry Daugherty and when "Cousin
Everett" appeared the next day, he
was escorted out of the hotel and
directed to remain away.
Secret service men who are check
ing up the large number of people
who have been victimized by
"Cousin Everett," say he faces a
long term in the penitentiary- as- a
result of his activities. The specific
charge upon which he is held is that
of impersonating a governmen offi
cial. This carries a fine of $1,000
and three years in a federal prison.
Every time he borrowed money on
his false representation constitutes
a separate offense.

Stillman Must Pay
Alimony in 30 Days
White Plains, N. Y., April 4.
Justice Morschauser, in supreme
court here today, signed an order
directing that payment of alimony
and counsel fees in the divorce pro
ceedings brought by James A. Still
man, New York banker, against
Mrs. Anne U. Stillman be made
within 30 days, and that meanwhile
referee-hearings in the case ie
stayed. -
Counsel for both sides agreed that
sealed papers in the case, including
letters said to have been written to
Mrs. Stillman by Fred Beauvais, In
dian guide, named as co-respondent,
and the alleged "confession" letter
of Mrs. Stillman to her husband,
should not be opened when they are
filed in the Putnam county court
house at Carmel.
Here are Everett A. Harding, his
sister, Pearl, 13, and her pet cat,
"Gamaliel." Secct service operatives
have pricked their political and so
cial bubbles.
Everett won prominence by pos
ing as cousin and confidential sec
retary to President Harding. Pearl
was dubbed "The White House
Baby" and named her cat for "Cous
in Warren."
Everett chartered a special car
to go to the inauguration with
friends he had promised policital
jobs. The Pennsylvania railroad
claims the check he gave for the
special car was returned for want of
funds. Pearl gave out many inter
views and pictures.
President Harding is reported as
having denied relationship with them
and secret service operatives, work
ing under orders direct from Wash
ington, are checking up Everett's ac
tivities while he lies in jail.

"1 have actually gained twenty-five
pounds and I just think Tanlac is the
grandest medicine in the world." said
Mrs. Robert O. Reynolds, 127 North
Denver St.. Kansas City, Mo.
"For ten long years 1 suffered from
a very bad form of rheumatism, stom
ach and nervous troubles. My appe
tite was very poor. Whaf little I did
cat soured on my stomach and I suf
fered the most severe pains in my
back, hips and shoulders. My rheu
matism was so bad that I could not
raise my hands to comb my hair and
my arms hurt mo to my finger tips.
I became so weak and run down that
I lost all my energy and life had be
come almost a burden. I tried many
things, but nothing helped me. '
"I had only taken my first bottle
of Tanlac when I noticed my appe
tite was improving and I could sleep
better at night. I have taken three
bottles and the way it has helped
me and built me up is really aston
ishing. I can eat anything and
everything without the slightest dis
agreeable after effects. I sleep just
fine at night and am in better health
than I have been for years. I am
glad to give this statement, hoping
that any who are suffering as I did
may experience the same .wonderful
results, which I bel:ev t v. ill if
they -give TanLc a lax tral."
