Judging from the countless prep
arations and treatments which are
continually being advertised for the
purpose of making thin people fleshy,
developing arms, neck and bust, and
replacing ugly hollows and angles by
the soft curved lines of health and
beauty, there are evidently thousands
of men and women who keenly feel
their excessive thinness.
Thinness and weakness are often

Among the thousands of specimens
brought to this country by Prof. R.
L. Garner, of Smithsonian Institu
tion, who arrived in New York yes
terday after spending two and a half
years in the jungles of the French
Congo, is the body of a strange ani
mal, half gorilla and half chimpanzee
and of such high intelligence that it
ranks next to man a veritable
"missing link." He says the huge
apes in the French Congo are able
to talk so that they can be under
stood by the natives.
Prof. Garner was accompanied on
his trip by C. R. W. Aschemeier, a
taxidermist from the National Mu
seum, who came to this city several
days ago, and then returned to his
home in Baltimore. Mr. Aschemeier
had charge of mounting and preserv
ing .the specimens collected, which
are thousands in number.
It is understood that the greater
part of the specimens are to be placed
in the Washington museum, and
more than 1,000 have already been
received here. They are mostly
birds, it is said.
Expedition "Was Private.
Officials of Smithsonian Institution
said today that Prof. Garner had
made the trip as a private expedition,
and that he had not been working
for the museum primarily. They were
of the opinion that Prof. Garner
would remain in New York for some
time before coming to this city.
Prof. Garner learned of the exist
ence of the man-monkey through na
tives of the French Kongo, who de
clared it infested a certain region
and that they could understand lan
guage. Accompanied by four native guides.
Prof. Garner succeeded In locating
the habitat of the animals, and set
about learning the language of the
Translates Monkey Language.
He found that the big ape came
to the edge of clearings in the jungle
at night and there called for its mate.
The call given was "waa-hooa." The
answer invariably given by the fe
male to this cry was "ahoo-ahoo."
The literal translation of the first
cry he gave as "Where are you?" and
the reply as "Here I am." ,
After weeks of hard study Prof.
Garner was able to imitate the cry
of the female. One night a big ape
out in the jungle called "waa-hooa."
The professor answered "ahoo-ahoo."
The male ape came bounding and
crashing through the jungle to where
the professor stood with his rifle. He
killed the beast, which stood more
than six feet tall and weighed over
200 pounds. The stuffed and mounted
body will be placed in the National
Among the other specimens se
cured are the skeletons of two mon

need more phosphate than Is contained
in modern foods. Physicians claim
there is nothing that will supply tins
deficiency so well as the organic phos
phate known among druggists as
bltro-phosphate. which is inexpons'vo
and is cold by Peoplej Drug Stores in
Washington and most all druggists
under a guarantee of satisfaction or
money back. By feeding th nerves
directly and by supplying the body
ceils with the necessary phosphoric
food elements, bitro-phosphatx' should
produce a welcome transformation in
the appearance; the Increase in
weight frequently being astonishing.
Increase In weight also carries with
It a general improvement In the
health. Nervousness, sleeplessness
and lack of energy, which nearly al
ways accompany excessive thinness,
should soon disappear, dull eyes ought
to brighten, and pale cheeks plow
with the bloom of perfect health. Miss
Georgia Hamilton, who was once thin
and iraiL reporting her own experi
ence, writes: Bltro-Pho8phate has
brought about a magic transformation
with me. I gained IS pounds and
never before felt so well."
CAUTION: Although bitro-phos-pbxte
is unsurpassed for relieving
ftervoussess, sleeplessness and gen
ral weakness, it should not owing
to its tendency to increase woteht. be
osed by anyone who does mrdesire
to put on flesh.
After the case of Marjorle E. Zepp
against the City and Suburban rail
way was called for trial before
Justice Stafford In Circuit fcourt No.
J and thp Jury had been examined
yesterday, settlement was reached on
the basis of $2,125 fdr Mrs. Zepp.
Mrs Zepp claimed that she boarded
a car of the defendant company at
Everett street northwest, on May 2,
1917, and when In the vicinity of
North Capitol and R streets it col
lided with a car ahead of it, twisting
her hick and causing her to lose
about six weeks from her employ

Mrs. Zepp was represented by At
