REQUIRED TO DISROBE
BY CUSTOM OFFICIALS
Wealthy Southerners Placed In Em

New York, March 17.?The wife and
daughter of Jos. Hull, of Savannah,
Ca., one of the wealthiest and moat
influential men In tho South, were re
quired to disrobe in their siaterooms
aboard the steamship Lustania today
while a custom inspectress acting on
a mysterious Up, subsequently found
lu f?i30 made a vain search for a
diamond necklace thought to have
been purchased abroad. The search
proving futile, Mrs. Hull and the
daughter. Eliza Lamar Hull, were al
lowed to proceed to their hotel, where
another daughter, Nina W., convales
cing from an attack of typhoid fever,
had preceded them without having
been subjected to search.
The necklace rumor dismissed, cus
toms inspectors scrutinized the fam
ily baggage and charging under valu
ations in the case of Mrs. Hull and the
daughter. Eliza L., seized the articles
in question. Mother and daughter
maintained they had acted in good
faith, but their explanations were not
1 considered satisfactory to Collector
1 Loeb and. the articles \yort) seised*
; They consist entirely of wearing ap
I par el and will be held until "the home
I value," that is the foreign cost plus,

Joseph Hull, the husband and father,
was on the pier to greet his wife and
daughter, as was a son. Daniel, a cot
tcn broker in this city. All were In
dignant at the proceedings and threat
en to carry the matter to the courts
, if necessary.
Made to Take off Stocking*.
"We were made to take off even our
stockings." said Mrs. Hull "Every
stitch of our clothing was searched
and even our hair did not escape. I
'consider this treatment an outrage
and 1 had no idea such a thing could
happen on American soil."
It was explained for the family that
the report concerning the necklace
had probably come from Savannah
where "there was jealousy" over the
fact that the Hulls were fortunate
enough to enjoy foreign luxuries and
finery As t<. the undervaluation

".My sister Eliza was the only one
of the three who had previously been
abroad, so yesterday my father sent
a wireless warning mother and the
girls to be very cautious and particu
lar in making their declarations. As
to the alleged undervaluation, the to
tal can be no more than $150 and that
was due to the ignorance of my moth

They are right, they can't.

not to wear. It is made of

$2.00 Shoe $2.50
is a revelation to every woman who tries it for the

double the money. It makes the foot feel perfectly at
