BOOZE ENTIRELY MISSING
FROM ALONG MAIN LINE
Not Fault of Option or Prohibition,
for He's a Dog.
Booze has entirely disappeared from
Haverford and other places along the
Main Line, and there Is much dismay.
Many of tho residents said today that the
places will now go to the dogs. Behind
the disappearance of Booze there Is a
tale; two tales In fact, although It Is
generally admitted that tho prohibition
ists have nothing to do with It.
Local optlonlsts also assert they were
not concerned with the withdrawal of
Booze, but those who are interested In
the matter found that Booze could not be
found In Bryn Mawr. Rosemont, Berwyn,
Wayne or any other place. If thirsty per
sons know here to go, however, they
cart get all they want.
Howard Longstreth, of Haverford, Is
especially Interested In finding Booze, for
you see that's the name of his dog. Booze
Is a French brlndle bull, chunky and fat,
with a Btumpy tall. He Is In the habit of
going away on a little trip, but the last
time he went he took Jelf, a bird dog,
with him. The habits of Booze evidently
did not meet with the approval of Jeff,
for he came back very mournfully. It
is believed that the animals quarreled.
It's not the first time that the dogs
went off on a JaUnt, They have gone off
on quiet trips many a time, and always
stayed together until the finish.
If Booso returns he will be forgiven
and no questions asked. In fact, his mas

LONDON, April 30.
Destruction of a number of buildings
and damage to others was the sum total
of damage done by the Germans In their
latest aerial raid over England early to
day. Tills raid, the ninth since the war
began, caused no loss of life. As In
the case of all previous visitations, no
attempt apparently was mado to do any
damage to fortified positions.
The German aircraft was aided by a
denso fog, which covered the coast last
night. At midnight it passed In from the
moment now that a squadron of the

Brookshall road, a residence section of
Ipswich. Five houses were destroyed
by flro there.
One of the bombs fell In the bedroom
occupied by Harry Goodwin, his Wife and
their daughter, 12 years old. The girl's
bed was set on fire, but the father res
cued her. Scores of people fled to the
streots In their night clothing. The thrnb
of the powerful engines of the aircraft
could distinctly be heard.
The Zeppelin then proceeded to Whlt
ton. where several bombs likewise were
dropped, but they fell in a field. Soon
after 1 o'clock It was sighted over Bury
St. Edmunds, where 12 bombs wete
dropped. Two were Incendiary and sot
flro to a stable and buildings in the vicin
ity of the Suffolk Hotel. St. Andrew's
Hall and other buildings nearby were de
stroyed. Some of tho bombs fell In the
residential section. One man rushed out
Into tho road and extinguished the fuse
of a bomb with a pail of water. The
Zeppelin finally disappeared In the direc
tion of the sea. British aeroplanes tried
to pursue the raider, but lost It In the
One of the clearest stories told was
by W. T. Easey, of 53 BrooKBhall road,
Ipswich, who said:
"I was awakened by a buzz, and al
most Immediately I heard an explosion.
All of the windows of my house were
shattered and the building set on fire,
I rushed into tho street, taking my wife
