Schemes in Stores-Loss From
This Source Heavy.
New York.-Four Years ago Lottie
Groas married. Her husband knew
that she had Barred a term in Moy
amenslag for shoplifting. But she
promised him-and she meant lt
that she would never steal again. And
then the hk.cy came. "I wanted pret
ty things for ber," said Lottie. "And
so I went back to the old game. If
I couldn't. quit for the best man In
the world I guess I never can quit
Stealing is like a disease-except that
it can't be cured."
That's about what the detectives
think. Once a man or woman gets
well started at stealing and be or
she ls a thief for life
'The big stores lose more by am
ateur shoplifters than by profession
ale," said D. J. Botter, manager for
the criminal department of a detec
tive agency. "A woman steals some
trifling thing, that catches her eye
and gets away with it Then she
comes back-and keeps on coming
back. They never let up."
Cotter takes the professional thief
catcher'g view of the defense of klep
tomania. Now and then there may be
a kleptomaniac. Most kleptomaniacs
are just thieveB. They get started to
stealing-and it's like rolling a snow
ball down hill-the stealing grows.
"There was the woman we may call
Anna Eva," he said. "She is one of
the most dangerous professional store
thieveB and shoplifters-there is a
differnce in the terms-in the country.
Her husband is a captain of a lake
vessel. So is one of her sons. They
have a good home at Cleveland, where
the daughter is married to a good
man. But Anna Eva began to steal'
She has been a professional thief for
years, and now has a prison record.
"Mind you, she has no criminal as
sociates. 1 do not suppose ehe knows
another thief to speak to, though she
may know them by sight. She has
nothing to do with other crooks. She
just stealB. She travels most of the
time, living at good hotels. She is a
kindly, placid, pleasant woman of mid
dle age-and a professional thief.
Like all the others, she began as an
"I don't know that there are any
particularly new schemes against
which store managers should be on
the alert," said Cotter. "Every one
knows the old trick with a hunk of
chewing gum? The Lrst thief Bticks a
ring under the ledge of the counter
with the gum. Then the other comes
along and runs his band under the
counter edge and gets the ring and
vamooses. Open umbrellas are often
uoed a? receptacles.
The neatest trick turned lately was
In the west, when a good looking, well
dressed man sauntered into a jewelry
store with an apple in his hand. He
looked at a tray filled with valuable
"Wah!" be suddenly sputtered.
"This apple is wormy."
Whereupon he threw the apple into
the street The confederate, on the
lookout, picked up the apple and the
gem which had been hidden in it and
made off. An almost equally nifty de
vice is to equip the collar of a pet
dog with a secret pocket When the
stolen ring has been placed in the
pocket, while the operator i? petting
the animal, it leaps to the floor.
"Catch my dear little doggie," yelps
the bereaved shoplifter.
Every one hurries to oblige. The
dear little doggie Ats its little tail
into the groove and scampers for
home, SB it has been trained to do.
The shoplifter profits by the fact
that the managers of stores hesitate
to prosecute. They believe that hon
est customers are inclined to shun
stores in which such arrests are fre
quently made, fearing that an entire
ly innocent action might lead to an
unpleasant seizure and search. But
the total loss by shoplifting and by
store thieves is BO great that the Na

Cherry time will soon be with us,
so it is well to look up the good
things we intend to prepare. If you
are a cherry lover, don't fail to put
up a few quarts of the rich dark red
cherries for the winter dinner table.
Cherry Olives.-Cover the pitted
cherries with good vinegar and let
stand over night. In the morning
drain off the vinegar and weigh the
cherries, adding an equal weight of
sugar, stirring until it is all dissolved.
Cover the jar with a plate.and cloth
and set away in the fruit cellar. The
vinegar and sugar preserves them
sufficiently without sugar. The vine
gar may be used with sugar to pre
pare shrub for a summer drink.
Cherry Pudding.-A simple little
pudding which may be prepared by
using the fresh or canned fruit: Sift
a cup of flour with two teaspoonfuls
of baking powder, a half teaspoonful
of salt, and stir in a half to three
fourths of a cup of milk, Butter
small cups and drop In a little of the
batter, then a tablespoonful of cher
ries, juice and all, and another spoon
ful of the batter.' Set the cups Into a
sauce pan of boiling water, cover
closely and cook without uncovering
the dish for fifteen minutes. Serve
with cream and sugar. If cream is
hard to get, thicken the cherry juice,
add a bit of butter and serve hot

Cherry Pie.-Line a pie plate with a
rich crust, fill with carefully seeded
fruit, sweeten to taste, sprinkle with
a little flour, then add a few bits of
butter scattered over it Wet the
edge of the crust and cover with the
upper crust being careful to provide
holes for the escape of the steam.
The real secret of a successful
cherry pie is the crust and seasoning,
as well as careful baking.
