who' were wilting dally to buy expen

patronize expensive places for food

Isadore Kaganow, a Russian dishwasher,

why he struck Patrolman Bellinger on

the officer. He said ha had never seen

lei Balslnger. a farmer of Oakland, N. J.
In 1S13 the plaintiff sold his farm to
the Rev. Mr. Loehrs, taking ln payment
therefor a cash deposit of S20 and a
note for 16,000, and arranging that Mr.
Loehrs assume a $1,200 mortgage which
was fastened to the land. To the action
on the note, which had lta first day ln
the Passaic court on Monday, Pastur
Loehrs presents the following defence:
That ln 1913 he became the directing
head of three spiritualist congregations
and came to know Mr. Balslnger aa a
parishioner. That Mr. Balslnger con
fided to him presently that he had been
visited by a disembodied spirit who
confided to him that the late Capt Kldd
had burled an enormous body of treas
ure on the Balslnger farm, which, how
ever, would elude the Bpade of any or
dinary digger and rise only to that of
an individual whom the spirit described,
the description fitting Mr. Loehrs to tho
tips of hla clerical tie.
Now Mr. Loehrs counts hmlaelf no
colossus of learning. He Is a little weak
on philology for Instance and does not
or did not knoW who first put the
kid tn Kldd. But as a geographer and
geologist he was able to tell Mr. Bal

He and two women who will take the

((Bonheur du Jour'9
A certain ttj'pe of small and exqui
sitely fine desk in the new collection
of French antiques, Au Quatrieme,
is known as "bpnheur du jour" hap
piness of the day. This charming
name is completely in character with
the delicate fineness of these little
pieces of old furniture.
For example, there is one that was
unpacked yesterday, one of fine
grained fruit wood, curiously smooth
and hard of surface, and the color of
old mahogany. ,This desk is built
upon four very slender tapering legs,
with a small upright compartment
like that'of an old secretary contain
ing four tiny drawers and resting
upon the desk proper, with its larger
drawer and leaf for writing.
The little compartment has a mar
ble top. The whole piece is ever so
tiny and delicate. Price, $385.
Another desk of this type has two
doors containing mirrors in place of
the four tiny drawers. This "bon
heur du jour" is a little larger than
the one described above, but it, too,
is very small and delicate. $500.
These desks are typical of the col
lection of fine antique French1' desks,
beds and tables. There is a delicacy
and fineness about all the pieces in
this new collection achieved by pa
tient and long searching by the col
lectors. Fourth Floor, Old Building.
