"But you must see that I cannot
give my child into your case even
though I know it would be the best
maternal care in the world- You will
forgive me, Margaret, if I say that my
daughter must be brought up in an
atmosphere of Christian influence,
which I have not found at your home
on my few visits. I must refuse you,
even if you think me a traitor to the
dead. I fell I owe more to the living."
I stole a look at Dick when he
spoke of Christian influences and
found that even Dick's anger at me
was dissipated by his exasperation at
his arraignment of our home atmos
phere. But he quickly recovered him
self and gave a slight grin, which I
could nothelp answeringwith a smile.
"I guess if that is settled we can
take the early train," said Dick, get

Dick with all his faults," I said to my
self, as I bade Herbert good-by. "At J

BOOST BIRTH CONTROL
New York, Oct 23. A half dozen
decrepit, undersized men, derelicts,
today paraded fashionable Fifth ave
nue bearing huge "sandwich signs"
calling attention to their deficiencies
and asking the world if it was willing
to have them become fathers. The

son is head.
MEXICANS KILLED ON BORDER
Brownsville, Tex., Oct 23. Two
Mexicans were shot and killed by
American soldiers near San Pedro
ranch, 12 miles up the river. The
Mexicans armed and carrying packs
believed to contain loot were pad
dling logs across to the Mexican side
when soldiers discovered them. Their
bodies have not been recovered. Sol
diers and armed civilians continue to
round up Mexicans in this vicinity.
BANKS WITHHOLD TAX MONEY
"A penny saved is a penny earned,"
but the banks and other big Chicago
corporations are saving a great deal
more than a penny when they with
hold their taxes till the state's""at
torney's office has filed 3uit to col
lect them in the courts.
Recently Ass't State's Att'y Mor
ris Schaeffer received a check for
$10,301 from the Colonial Trust and
Savings bank. This was their assess
ment on a personal property valua
tion of $600,000. It was payable on
last Jan. 1 and should have been paid
before March 10.
"It is now the later part of October
and they have held this money for
nearly 10 months, hereby putting
more than $500 interest into their
pockets which should belong to the
county," said Cchaeffer. "This month
we have filed suits for taxes against
25 corporations. Most of these will
be paid before they come to trial.
Even if they do come to trial the
judge can only order the taxes be
paid with the $7 court costs. Who
isn't willing to pay $7 to save several
hundred. This Is just one of the loop
holes in the tax laws of Illinois which
this office Is trying to plug up.
Just before the judge called the
case of the state against Harry Dubia,
president of the Industrial Savings
bank, Dubia handed a check for $1,
400 to Schaeffer. In doing this he
probably saved $7 court costs.
In 1913 the Industrial Savings bank
was assessed at $150,000. This was
reduced to $80,000 by the Board of
Review. In 1914 the board of assess
ors assessed him for less than $25,
000. On the stand before the Board
of Review he admitted that his bank
had $90,000 worth of personal prop
erty. His assessment was fixed at
that amount He just paid it yesterday.
