Mr. Haefner is a musician and a good
one, his friends say. unce ue was a
patient and gentle man, but that was
long ago. Mfe to him for the past few
weeks has been Just one doggoned irri
tation after another. Ho has been the
victim of a practical Joko that seems to
set a brand new record for such matters
and bids fair to end seriously for some
unsuspecting Jester. Mr. Haefner is so
hopping mad that ho has cast caution
to tho winds and stands ready to take a
one-two punch at Ills unknown poreeoutor
if the law won't savo him Uie trouble
of delivering the k. o.
before Mr. Haefner changed his plaoe
of abode the steps of his Gates avenue
home wero crowded night and day with
seekers aftor Jobs. Tho neighbors began
to say queer things about him. hinting that
he must be recruiting an army to capture
East New ork or a crow to dig for buried
treasure In the uowanus canal, in
course all that helped to sooth and placato
Mr. Huefner's irritated feelings until
ho simply couldn't bear to stay there; bo
he up and moved away. Since then ho
has had a little rest, but it will take a lot
more of the same to bring him back to a
normal state of mind.
When furnace tenders and carpet
beaters aud trombone soloists and such
began to drop in on Mr, Haefner from o
in tho morning until mianignt no tnougnt
it was queer When doctors from all
parts of Hrooklyn came and wanted him
to pay for it although he swore by all the
Peeing Turns mat no nnn not sent ior
them, when dentists wanted to fill holes
in hi toetti where mere wero no noire,
he thought It queerer. Hut when his
friend William, the undertaker from
around tho corner, came In and insisted
on burying him he win fnlrly astounded.
"Somehody must no moving a practical
Joke on me." decided Mr. Haefner.
After this undertaker had been con
vinced that Mr. Haefner whs alive two
called. Hie third likewise was acquainted
with Mr Haefner. He had been told
hv telephono that George Haefner was
dead, Uiat ho must come right around
and do the honors. He went grieving.
Then, to top it all off, bills liegnn to pour
in upon the linctnors and tneir lawyer,
Charles Oechler of 214 Uleecser street.
Hrooklvn. for ndvertisementH, nnd when
these wore disregarded threats to sue weio
rinally the last straw descended on
Mr. Hae'f tier's baok. Twelve book agents
found him at home, nil at the same time,
and they reftistsi to go until they had
expatiated upon the lelntive merits of
Chaucer. Milton, Laura Jean Libley nnd
So Mr. Oechler eot busy. He found
out that th; advertisements had all len
telephoned to tho various newspapers
and that some of them wero traceable
to n certain street In Hrooklyn. He and
Haefner put two nnd two together until
lliev are now nrettv well convinced as
to tlm identity of the nuthorof the trouble.
when they are certain- well. .iir. liaet-
ner expects to smile Uien for tho first
time in threo weeks,
Mr Oechler is going to put the whole
matter up to William Youngs, Federal
District Attorney for the district com
prising Kings county. If he can't get
redress there he will bring the situation
to the notice of the Kings county District
Attorney and of uie urand Jury.

Father McMahon Says Subjec
tion of Women In Marriage
Implies No Inferiority.
CALLS L0MBR0S0 FAKER
Requirements of Priesthood
Necessarily Limit It
to tho Men.
At Delmonloo's yesterday afternoon
the Rev, Joseph II. McMahon of the
Church of Our Lady of Lourdea, in 143d
street, delivered the first of a course of
three lectures on "The Cathollo Church
and the Woman Question.
"The idea of the subjection of the
woman to the man is insisted on In mar
riage, said the t. pecker. "The man must
be tho head of the home. It Is physio
logically necessary that he should be.
Rut that does not mean that woman is
inferior to him.
"The Cathollo Church la said to teach
that she is inferior morally; mentally
and physically. On the contrary the
Cathollo teaching and practioe ia that
there is but one law for the man and the
woman. Tho Church recognizes no dif
ference between them. ,
Lomhroso, ono of the greatest pseudo
scientific fakers, has made the remarkable
claim that men are more moral than
women. It is not a subject for publio
discussion, but It surely is significant that
the weight of the world's opinion is to the
"As for women being inferior mentally,
thnt is not yet proved. It is only a short
time that women have been receiving
an education comparable to that afforded
to men. They used to step from ele
mentary arithmetic straight into the
bonds of wedlock. There have been
women who havo written gTeat books,
women who havo sliownjgreat intellectual
powers. The time has not come when
we can say what they are capable of
when trained through generations as men
"Ono' accusation against the Church is
thnt it oxcludes women from the priest
hood. Tho Church did not do it. Christ,
who founded theChuroh. did it, and later
developments seem to prove it was wisely
none, women were priestesses in tlie
old pagan religions aud also in certain
later sects, iiKeineunnstics. ine Horrible
conditions which resulted art) well known.
"It seems to have remained for the
Christian. Scientists to introduce women
orientesses in modern times. The nr.
rangement hnn not developed any great
success. The courts are now trying
decide whether Christian Science
is a religion or a business.
"It is bevond Question that women
should not be in the Cathollo priesthood.
Consider the duties of a priest; not per
has in a fashionable parish, but in the
slums. He is called out perhaps half a
dozen times in the course of a night in
all kinds of weather. He must go into
the most evil places. Take a recent case
up In Tho Rroux where people were being
shot by the half dozen. The priest had
to go into tho shambles. Could a woman
do that No. It la impossible.
"And now with regard to 8t. Paul.
Poor St. Paul! He comes in for much
abuse at tho hands of infidel and Irre
ligious suffragists. Hut in Ht. Paul's

A Few Remarks
on Staying "Put"
ri All the world likes a
man who "stays put.".
U In loyalty to nn em
ployer, to a friend, to a
principle, to a girl, the
man who "stays put"
is held in high esteem.
i And the reason for
this is, that it is natural
for men to applaud a
virtue in which human
nature is deplorably de
ficient. II This Is perhaps a
rather pretentious In
troduction to the sub
ject of Saks clothes, but

from the coat to the
man, we surely can

men come in here, sea

clothes, whose garments
still retain, after
months of hard usage,
those shapely qualities
and that individuality
of style which we first
put into them.

possible proof we can
furnish as to the man

clothes are made.
