Charles A. Payne, extension lecturer
for the University of Wisconsin spoke
last night at the high school on "Swit
zerland and the Rhine" and his lec
ture w&s Tery pleasing to the audience
which greeted him. His speeefc was of
a descriptive nature and was accom
panied by 100 stereoptlcon views,
mostly of the Alps and of beautiful lit
tle Swiss villages situated very pic
turesquely In valleys.
He described many of the most not
ed spots in Switzerland and told how
thousands of sightseers visited these
places each year under the care of
Swiss guides. In this connection he
paid high tribute to these guides,
many of whom give their lives when
danger threatens those In whose hire
The glaciers also were described and
pictured by the speaker.
II4BITS OP THE SWISS.
Mr. Payne told many Interesting
stories about the habits and character
istics of the Swiss. As thousands of
tourists visit the little mountainous
country each year, the people have
come to look upon tbem as legitimate
prey and many are the schemes devis
ed to part the visitors from portions
of their wealth. They will perform
the smallest arrommodatlon and t,hen

plead for money to purchase feed, so

leaving the Alps and the interesting
SwIhs people, the speaker carried his
audience over to Germany and the
river Rhine. He exhibited many fine
views of the ancient castles along this
historic river and told many weird
legends which have become associat
ed with various of the old ruins. Many
of these were so strange and unreal
that it was almost impossible for his
audience to believe that at one time
the stories were accepted as facts by
the people of earlier times.
TEl.I.S OF" THE EAST.
Yesterday afternoon, Mr. Payne de
livered a short lecture to the high
school students in which he spoke of
the Turks and other eastern countries.
In speaking of the Turk, he described
him as being more polite . even than
While traveling 1n the desert, Mr.
Payne had the unusual experience of
being entertained and robbed by the
same man. He was taken sick sudden

him, cared for him until he was well
and able to continue his journey.
Shortly after the separation, the sheik
and his band rode up on their desert
steeds and calmly robbed Mr. Payne's

For Removing Wrinkles
and Double Chin
So many new-fangled things have
been recommended for removing
wrinkles, double chins, blackheads
and the like that one may be loath
to believe that the old-fashioned
thermodized jelly, which can be
bought of any druggist, will surely
and safely make wrinkles, enlarged
pores and double chin vanish. This
specific supplies heat-energy and
nourishment. The first application
will show that thtrmodized jelly
will do more more good than all the
patent remedies put together. Half
a teabpoonful rubbed into the face
until it is absorbed, and followed
by a wat;h of very cold water, Is
the way to obtain best results.
led daily, really marvelous re
sults will follow. Another wise
hint Is that It is a foolish make
shift to attempt hiding a sallow
complexion, or, for that matter, a
poor complexion of any kind. One
can easily clear the bkin Itself by
applying collated balsam at night

SOCIALISTS OF SILVIS
PUT TICKET IN FIELD
Socialists of Silvia, as promised.
have placed a ticket in the field for
village offices, and their candidates
will be voted on at the April elec
tion. Petitions have just been filed
with the village clerk, in which the
party names Joseph Janosky, Samuel
D. Marchant and William W. Green
as candidates for members of the
board of trustees. Petitions have
also been filed by O. C. Williams, can
didate for village clerk on the repub
lican ticket, and by Clark Corbln,
candidate for village trustee, also on
the republican ticket.
With an Informal reception in the
lobby of the New Harper last even
ing, Hon. Samuel Alschuler, candi
date for the democratic nomination
for governor, concluded his visit to
Rock Island and Moline, yesterday.
During the course of the evening a
large number of citizens called to
pay their respects to Mr. Alschuler,
republicans as well as democrats ex
tending greetings. Mr. Alschuler is
such a thoroughly representative man
that the people of all classes take
pleasure in meeting him.
He expressed himself as delighted
with the reception accorded him, and
said he was very proud of the fact
that eo many republicans, among
them the most prominent in the city.
took the pains to call. "In this day,"
he said. "I take it that the people
are looking for the man whom they
deem best qualified for the office of
governor. I say this not in vanity,
or without taking it for granted that
all the good people who greet me as
I go through the state are for me,
Rather does it strike me that they
are looking over the field of candi
dates. That is the reason I am on
the road. You know in the old days
of Rome the candidates for popular
favor were stood up in a row where
the people were privileged to call
and Inspect them. We are not ex
actly in that position today, but we
feel at least I feel that the peo
ple have a right to see and talk with
those who seek favor at their hands
That 1b why I am going about the
state, and I am very thankful to
those who go to the trouble of honor
ing me with their presence."
In the afternoon Mr. Alschuler, ac
companled by a party of Rock Island
friends, went to Moline, where he
met a large number of citizens at the
Manufacturers' hotel, and later made
a number of calls in that city. He
spoke of the results of his day in the
two cities as entirely satisfactory to

HELD BRANDT SENTENCE
WAS ILLEGALLY GIVEN
New York, Feb. 22. Except for ser
vices of five years in prison, Folke E.
Brandt is today the same man in the
eyes of the law as he was before he
was sent away on April 4, 1907, to
serve 20 years for 'burglary at the resi
dence of Mortimer Ik Schlft, where he
once was a valet.
The long prison term was broken
late yesterday when Justice Gerard of
the supreme court sustained a writ of
habeas corpus obtained in Brandt's be
half. According to records which Justice
Gerard read into his opinion Brandt on
March 28, 1907, withdrew a plea of not
guilty to the Indictment charging that
he feloniously broke Into the Schiff
house and stole "two pins and a shoe
horn." and plead guilty.
In sentencing him a week later to 30
years in prison Judge Otto A. CRoual
sky illegally condemned the man, ac
cording to Justice Gerard.
The court held that the examination
of Brandt at the time that he was sen
tenced tended to refute the charge of
first degree burglary.
The question and answers set forth
in the examination," declared Justice
Gerard, "show that Brandt, whatev
er other crime he committed, did not
"break' to enter within the meaning of
the law, and showed that the crime of
burglary in the first degree, or in any.
degree, was not, in fact, committed."
Brandt will remain in the Tombs un
til Friday, when, by agreement of
counsel, he will be released on bail
furnished by a surety company.
District Attorney Whitman said he
would confer with Attorney General
Carmody as to whether the state
should appeal from Justice Gerard's
decision, and will take ho steps until
after this conference.
As to the status -of Commissioner
Hand's investigation, the district at
torney said the governor cannot par
don Brandt now. Brandt's position
is that of a man who has been indict
ed and is awaiting trial, and his origi
nal plea of not guilty comes into force
The grand jury is still investigating
to determine if there was conspiracy
in giving Brandt such a long term in

Interests their 30 pieces of silver for

this Infamous judgment on the consti
tutionality of the law which they set
aside." This was the charge made by
John H. .Walker, president of the
United Mine Workers of Illinois, in his
annual report to the convention at its
opening session in the state arsenal
Tuesday with reference to the "Tan
ner act," which that body found uncon
stitutional in a decision handed down
April 19. 1911.
The Tanner law provided that no one
against whom a strike had been called
could import workmen from another
state without making it known that a
strike was in progress. It further pro
vided that workmen, could not be im
ported under guard.
President Walker denounced Thorn-
as L. Lewis, former president of the
United Mine Workers of America, for
a conference which was said to have
been held by Lewis with coal opera
tors in Chicago. This meeting was de
clared to have taken place last Thurs
day. It was charged that after the
meeting on announcement was made
that all difficulties between the Illinois
miners and the operators had been set
tled and that there would be no cessa
tion of work by the miners on April 1.
This conference, it was said, was held
without the knowledge of the Illinois
officials of the United Mine Workers.

the Illinois miners, in his annual Te-
port to the convention in the afternoon
In response to a challenge to anyone
to show where any of the reports cir
culated were true, J. L. Lewis of Pan
ama arose and said he would show the
convention that the secretary-treasurer
had used union funds for other uses
than those of the organization.
A point of order was called for and
Mr. Lewis was then asked to wait un
til the committee on officers reports
makes known its opinions. That will
be today probably. An interesting dis
cussion is expected at that time.
Objected to Arrest.
Frank Lewis, arrested yesterday af

after a fight, was given a hearing this
afternoon in police court The charge
against him was disorderly conduct.
