LIEUT. BECKER WALKS OUT OF DEATH CELL AT
SING SING WITH HAPPY WIFE .
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Becker.
New York. When former Police
THE POOR BOY!
Doctors in Switzerland have been
mean enough to turn the X-rays on
a boy with a good appetite to find
out why he had it and where he put
all he ate. About fifty years from
now, others doctors may be trying to
find out why he hasn't any appetite.
But about the present condition of
the lad they found he had two
stomachs, and marvelled greatly
He was a fortunate boy, provided,
of course, that he always got enough
to fill both tummies. And, while it is
odd that he did have a pair of 'em, it
does seem possible that many boys
are similarly equipped, judging from
their appetites as compared with
those of average adults.
Lieutenant Charles Becker walked
out of 'Sing. Sing prison on-his return
trip to the New York Tombs, to await
a second trial for the. murder of Her
man Kosenthal, by his side and hang
ing happily on, his arm was .his faith
ful wife. It was the first time they
had been together since October,
1912, when she accompanied him to
Ossinning to enter the death celL
In the interest of science, and
parents, the doctors should have ex
tended the explorations further in
the youth's anatomy and enlightened
the world as to where, at picnics,
Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners,
and other festive occasions, the small
boy stows what he consumes. Two
stomachs! Huh! Five or six twould
be more like it.
Some people have an ideath'at the
world owes them a living, with a few
trading stamps thrown in.
Separate cotton coats and wraps
will be worn much next summer.
These are made of the Poiret or im
pressionist figured material.
