OIL PAINTINGS SUED
Uncle Sam Begins Action
for Forfeiture of Works
SAID TO HAVE BEEN SMUGGLED
They Have Already Cost Mrs.
CHICAGO, Dec. 1. The United
States of America vs. Two Oil Paintings
et al." is the title of a suit filed by
the Government for the forfeiture of
uorks of art belonging to Mrs. "Jack"
Gardner, of Boston, and said to have
been smuggled into the United States
by Mrs. Emily Crane Chadbourne, of
The filing of the suit in the Federal
Court brought to light figures which
indicate that unsuccessful smuggling is
ii costly adventure. When Mrs. Chad
bourne brought Mrs. Gardner's art treas
ures into the United States from Eng
land last summer she listed them at
the Custom-IIouse as "household ef
fects" roughly valued at $8,000. An
appraiser in Chicago placed their value
Mrs. Chadbourne was con-nelled o
pay the regular duty 6h 'this valuation,
amounting to $29,203, and a penalty of
JJ41.20J, a total of $70,409. This gave
her no right to the property. If she
wishes to regain that she must still
pay the appraised value of the ship
To Go Under Hammer.
No move in this direction, it is said,
lias been made by either Mrs. Chad
bourne or Mrs. Gardner, and in the
course of a few weeks it is regarded as
probable that an Italian Madonna, sev
eral tapestries of ancient and cunning
make and other articles of veitu will
go under the auctioneer's hammer to the
Mrs. Gardner, whose enthusiasm as
an art collector has made her known on
two continents, and Mrs. Chadbourne,
a member of the wealthy Crane family
of Chicago, met in Paris. When Mrs.
Gardner decided to return to America
she turned a lot of her art treasures
over to Mrs. Chadbourne. The latter,
transferring her residence to England,
used them in decorating her new home.
When she, in turn, started for her na
tive land, she decided to bring back
with her the valuables intrusted to her
by Mrs. Gardner, with the purpose of
turning them over to their owner.
When the fcase came to light friends
of Mrs. Chadbourne declared that, ig
norant of business and legal technicali
ties, Mrs. Chadbourne actually believed
that the works of art, having been used
in her house for decorative purposes,
reallv were household effects.
Not Like Those of Colonial Days, Says
ST. LOUIS, Dec. l.--Women should
not copy men in dress, manner or ideas,
but should be like the women of colonial
days, who could sew, cook and care for
the home and who had an abiding faith
in their husbands, declared the Kev.
William Hayes Leaill, 1). D., president
of Westminster College, Fulton, Mo.,
in his address at the banquet of the
Society of Colonial Wars at the South
"Few women of today," he said,
"uould leac their homes, their friend
and all the attractions of life to follow
their liu-lumK into a foreign land a-,
did the women of Colonial .days. Mod
ern influences have had a deteriorating
t'lIVct on women: they have destroyed
much of the attractiveness of women.
"The home is the place for women
mle it is absolutely necessary for
them to leae it. I do not believe any
v oman hou!d enter the field of business
and take a man's place unless conditions
require that she sdiould do so. I am not
a believer in woman's rights as woman's
ri-'hts are known today."

Lifts Himself Up and Down
On Trapeze Just
DETROIT, Dec. 1 Otto Huck, pro
prietor of Schiller Hall, is the proud
father of an athletic son, who at the
age of 18 months is able to exercise
with two-pound dumb bells.
The little fellow's muscles are al
ready remarkably well developed.
"I feel that in order to raise a child
that will be sound in mind, it is essen
tial to give him an opportunity to de
velop physically," said Mr. Huck, who
has been a member of the Detroit So
cial Turnverein for 16 years, and a
great enthusiast for weight-lifting ex
ercises. "My little son now takes these ex
ercises several times everyvday, about
15 or 20 minutes at a time, just as he
happens to feel like doing. I don't be
lieve in crowding a child in the matter
of physical exercise, but to make it so
that he will get a lot of fun out of it.
I have a little trapeze that he uses in
lifting himself up and this develops
the muscles of the shoulders, back and

FAMILY ROW OVEB
Rival Undertakers Called by
Children and the Police
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 1. A family
row that led to the very edge of the
grave, necessitating the presence of
peace officers, at the funeral, was the
spectacle seen here when rival under
takers fought to perform the last of
fices for Mrs. J. T. Cromwell.
Her oldest daughter, Mrs. J. C.
Twitchell, engaged E. E. Erickson as
undertaker, while the youngest son of
the dead woman engaged Edward Hol
man, another funeral director.
The physician, a relative of Mrs.
Twitchell, refused to issue a death cer
tificate to Holman, who had secured
possession of the remains. The city
health officers were called in, but de
clined to issue a death certificate unless
an autopsy was performed.
Mrs. Twitchell had a strong inter
view with Holman, and is said to have
threatened his life. A warrant charg
ing her with insanity was issued, and
she found it necessary to remain away
from the funeral.
Three city police officers attended the
obsequies of the aged woman to pre
vent a conflict between members of
