to Inquiries which Dr. Frederick
Franz Friedman is receiving ask

famous tuberculosis cure to the
world, Dr. Friedman said today
that he had not yet arrived at a

Friedman slow to give out his dis

given out several phials of his

unscrupulous doctors in America

Man Coughs and Breaks Ribs
After a frightful coughing spell
a man in Neenah, Wis., felt terri

obstinate coughs, expels stubborn
colds or heals weak, sore lungs.

WILL TACOMA TANGO? THIS IS THE BIGGEST
QUESTION TO BE SOLVED BT OUR SOCIETT
Tho "tango," latest society ballroom fad—poses illustrates O.ie complete evolution of this sug
To tango or not to tango Is
the question that is agitating
The tango began at a Chicago
bachelor's ball when two beef
barons — leaders of course
—decided to forbid such capers
as the "bunny hug," the "bear
cat," the "turkey' trot," the
"Barbary Coast Walk Hack' and
the "Argentina Tango."
But they reckoned without
their wives and daughters, who
had been taking private dancing
lessons In the forbidden "tango"
purposely for this ball. And
though the hand played decorous
waltzes and modest two-steps,
the women Insisted upon tango
ing until the aforesaid beef
barons marshaled their cohorts
and left the ball.
With the unusually tight skirts
that are worn today, the Argen
tina tango is most suggestive.
Never before has the young so
ciety woman consented to coin

WASHINGTON, I). C, Dec. 26.
—George Dewey, victor of Ma
nila bay and admiral of the Amer
ican navy, is 75 years of age to
day. Dewey was born In Mont
pelier, Vt., graduated from th©
naval academy in ISSB, was made
an admiral In March, 1898, and
one year later was appointed
president of the general board
of the navy.
Henry Yuckert, wife and four
children shuffled off the train at
the depot yesterday and looked
around bewildered. For four
months they have been en route
from Russia. They were robbed
at Spokane and arrived here
without a cent. Patrolman Stude
baker was unable to ascertain
where they wanted to go. Offi
cer Royal finally thought he
knew, and sent them in the
wagon to 2145 Alnsworth avenue,
where the strangers were dropped
into the home of cousins they
had not seen for 15 years.
Calvin J. Carr, treasurer-elect,
has filed a $25,000 bond with
the city to cover city funds that
will be in his keeping.
