WHY RAISE YOUR HAT
"Why raise your hat?" Is the motto
of tho society for the Promotion of
German Modes of Greeting, whoso
headquarters are at Darmstalt. It Is
a wasteful habit, the society urges,
because it wears out the hat brim.
It it unhealthy because In bad weath
er it is apt to bring on colds. And,
worst of all, it is unpatriotic, for tho
custom was adopted from the French,
the first nation In Europe to bare
tho head as a form of politeness. Tho
truo mode of greeting for Germans,
tho members say, Is the military sa
lute, which is Teuton origin, having
originated among the officers of tho
Prussia Grenadiers. Tho society has
gained many adherents, and the in
habitants of Darmstadt aro now ac
customed to see elderly civilians

Gave Away Two Sons To
Bond Of Gypsies
But Located By Juvenile
In A Camp Between Utica
Through the effoits of Juvenile Of
ficer Patrick Purcell, Clarence and
Guy Beaman, two young boys, sons
of Mr. and Mrs. William Beaman of
Fairview addition, South Vernon,
were recovered from a band jf gyp
sies Sunday morning after they had
been abandoned by their parents on
Friday of last week. The boys were
found at the camp of the gypsies be
tween Utica and Newark and are now
In the juvenile detention ward In
the Knox county Jail.
The story is an Interesting one. On
Friday ot last week an affidavit was
made in juvenile court aglanst the boys
by Juvenile Officer Purcell. It was
charged that the boys had been guilty
of stealing, that they had been as
sociating with Immoral characters!
and for general incorrigibility. Satur
day morning Mr. Purcell went to the
Beaman home to bring the two boys
Into court when he was astonished to
learn from the mother that the fath
er had given the two away to a band
ot gypsies, making their camp for
some days on the Columbus rqad. Sat
urday afternoon Juvenile Officer .pur
cell brought the father Into juvenile
court and he informed Judge Berry
that it was his wife who gave the
two boys to tho gypsies.
Mr. Purcell immediately communlct
ed wlthh all the smaller towns as
the gypsies had broken their camp
here and one band had" started to
wards Columbus and the other to
Utica and Johnstown.
Saturday night Officer Purcell re
ceived a telephone message from the
marshal of Utica that tho boys had
been secured from tho band of gyp
sies camping between Utica and New
ark. Sunday morning Mr. .Purcell
went to Utica and brought the two
boys to Mt. Vernon and they nre
now located in tho detention ward for
juvenile offenders in the county jail
and will be brought before Judge Ber
ry for a hearing In a day or so.
It Is possible that a chargo may be
made against tho parents for giving
away tho boys to tho band of gypsies.
