The '‘Black Hand squad,” composed of Patrolman Harry Kinney, ix>ula Oldanl and Alex. Tremonte, has made good. After several weeks of uutlr itiK effort on the part of these men, in a persistent campaign against Black Hand desperadoes wtio terrorized the local Italian colony, a warrant was is sued by Justice Jeffries, Wednesday morning, for Sum Latulu, one of the numerous suspects rounded up by the trio, charging him with robbery, ('apt. Paker. of the ceutral precinct, be lieves he has a strong case against the man and, if convicted, he is liable to a maximum penalty of 15 years' im prisonment. I.utatu, in the opinion of the officers, was one of the most , active participants in the attempted I Black Hand outrages of a few months \ ago, and the authorship of the only Itwo Black Hand letters received in 'this city since these officers started 'their investigations is charged up to him, Lafata’s ulleged victim, in this in stance, was Frank Barone, an indus trious Italian bricklayer, who, the po lice say, was literally scared out ot town by Lafata, who pursued him to Grand Rapids, where tin* family is now living. Barone is now detained in police headquarters us a witness against l.atata. The specific charge against the latter. Is the robbery of $25. secured by means of threats, it is alleged. Lufata, the police assert, began his operations against Barone by going to his home as a boarder, and in this way learned of his industrious habits, lie remained but a short time. Soon af ter he left Barone received a Black Hand letter demanding SSOO and lui fata called to collect the money. It Is not believed that lafata wrote this letter but simply acted as agent for a gang of blackmailers. Barone theu lived on Hastings-st. I.afata, however, hunted him out and Barone was foorc ed to move again. This performance was repeated several times, Barone finally moving to No. 142 Mncomb-st. But I.afata was not to be lost. Pres ently he bobbed up again and this time, the police declare, Barone, now thoroughly frightened, gave up $25. Then he moved to Grand Rapids, but almost before he could get settled La fata, like a Nemesis, once more ap peared on the scene, demanding more money, it is alleged. l,afatu was ar rested soon afterwards. Special Officer Kinney ran across I.afata in Coldwater, Mich., while looking for unother man. Frank Bru no. lafata had gone there In the in terest of some friends who were in trouble with tiie local authorities and when Kinney surprised him in his room was writing a letter on the letter head of the sheriff of the county, which he had taken from the sheriff s office. The writing has since been compared with that of the two Black Hand letters received in Detroit re cently and corresponds exactly. These letters were addressed to Melo Lafata, a grocer at No. 219 Champlalnat., who, by the way, is no relation to the prisoner, and G. Cossora, Nos. 71-73 St. Antolne-st. They were mailed from Batavia. Mich., u town not far from Coldwater, and In them the wri ter states that while no more demands will be ready for money the recipi ents and their families are marked for destruction. lafata is futher connected with the authorship of these letters by a mem orandum book found in his posses sion. One page shows a gun, another a dagger, and in still another part of the book are the Nos. ”219” und “71- 73." evidently referring to the ad dresses of M. I.afata arid G. Cossora. The writing is the same us in the let ters. Kinney left I.afata In the Jail in Coldwater for half an hour while he got his dinner and during that halt hour, It developed later, I.afata stole a pair of socks belonging to one of the Jail officials. The socks were subse quently found In I.afata's pocket. "If he’d stayed there long enough he ROSY AND PLUMP Good Health From Ria n t Food.

THOMPSON! GOES BACK TO MEAT BLOCK i “IT’S NOT SO DIFFERENT,” SAYS EX-MAYOR, PRIVATE CITIZEN FOR FIRST TIME IN YEARS BREITMEYER HAS BUSY DAY. Mayor Breitmeyer's first business | clav us mayor was devoted largely to i a (ontinuatlon of the informal recep-1 tion will oh took up most of his tim* 1 ,1 Tuesday. Old friends and new kept | dropping lu and there was a constant tuln of congratulations. Among the visitors was Daniel J. Campau, former Democratic national committeeman, who wisned him well. On his desk, when the new mayor arrived, were a pile of paving nirJ sewer bonds which he signed, these being the first official papers to re ceive his signature. The mayor had two pens to choose between for this business, one having been presented by the Florists' club ami tile other coming Wednesday morning from the Chianti club, a social organization to which the major belongs. This latter pen is a beautiful gold tlligree affair of very artistic design. Commissioner of Public Works Haarer personally attended , to the work of rehabilitating the offices after the crush of Tuesday. He perched on j a ladder and extracted tucks, where flags had been hung, as if he got more fun out of being boss of the city hall liian anything else. A force of florists and helpers work ed all morning,dismantling the decora tions, some of the plants going back to Belle Isle and others to private j stores from which they had come. A letter came to the new mayor from Mrs. Charles Callff, of Muskegon, asking him to look up the present whereabouts of Mrs. V. Mansfield. The letter says: "Tell her she has a pruving mother now who prays every night for her lost one.” A sympathetic neighbor of Mrs. Wilson Johnson, No. 35 Thirtieth-st.. wrote the mayor, asking him to call on Mrs. Johnson, who has five chil dren. The letter states tiat the father of the family went away 12 weeks ago and that the woman has had a great deal of trouble since then and has been unsuccessful In her efforts to put her offsprings In an orphan asy lum. Ex-Mayor Thompson spent hls first day as an ex-offlctal in u way that wras almost as exciting to him. He was in court during the morning contesting a suit with Biother Will Allen over rent and lease matters affecting the latter's occupancy of the mission building on Cadlllac-sq. When he got back to hls butcher shop it was for only a few minutes. He shook hands with some fri» nds that happened to pass his Btall in the central market. Hls reception was almost as large as Breltmeyer's in the city hall. "I have been getting back Into the old harness for a couple of months,” declared the mayor. "So It's not so different.” COOKING SCHOOIT ATTRACTS MANY WOMEN Dozens of Detroit housewives are attending the afternoon lectures in cookery being given by Mrs. Bertha HufTuer on the seventh floor of the J.

The department was crowded Tues day afternoon when Mrs. HafTtier an nounced that planked steak would be the subject discussed, and there were many who declared they had never attempted to prepare one or else had not had satisfactory u results.

Mrs. Haffner garnished it with mashed po tatoes pressed through a muslin pas- i try bag, the potatoes being deftly | turned Into lose-ahaped figures. Some of the potatoes used in the roses were tinted pink with a vegetable coloring. , making a decidedly pleasing effect. The whole was then returned to the , j oven where It was allowed to brown,! land then further garnished with rad -1 Ishes cut, to resemble tiny water | lilies, and sprigs of parsley. S( veral church organizations of wo men ate Interested In a contest being conducted by Mrs. Haffner, the society securing the largest number of orders | for a flour being given a prize.

KUHN ADMITS CERTIFICATE DF - DEATH IS FALSE SAYS HE ACCEDED TO PLEADINGS OF RELATIVES SO THEY MIGHT COLLECT INSURANCE LODGE | FIGHTS CLAIM. That he tumle out a false certificate, of death Is the admission made by Dr. Charles F. Kuhu In an affidavit tiled Wednesday morning in the cuse brought by the Woodmen of America, who seek to prevent Frank and Julia | Takubowskl, of No. 747 Farnsworth ave,, from collecting |I,OOO insurance on the life of their brother, Vincent, I who died Dec. 2ti, 11407. In the certificate made out by Dr. Kunn. he gives the cause of death as acute anemia. He also says he hail attended Takubowskl but a few weeks before he died, and that no other ill ness contributed to the young mans deatii thut he knew of. In the affidavit Dr. Kuhu admits that he had treated Takubowskl for tuberculosis for two years before he died, ami knows the man died of tu berculosis of the intestines. He claims to have known that Takubow* skl contracted tuberculosis in the Philippines, where he served as a sol died, and admits that he operated upon him In Grace hospital for tuber culosis of the elbow. He say the certificate was made out lu the home of deceased In the presence of hts rel atives. The doctor says he was urged by the undertaker and the relatives to name some other disease as the cause of death, because if the truth were known they would be unable to collect the insurance. Contrary to his better Judgment and on the spur of the moment he did as requested, the doctor says. Takubowskl was insured under a policy which was void In case he died of tuberculosis.

While In Appleton, Wls., "Wolf* consulted a thermometer and noticed that It registered 34 degrees below !zero. He took another look to satisfy him self that the thing wasn't upside down and Immediately hurried Inside a hotel where he sat close to the stove. A native strolled in and saluting another \iHager, remarked: "A bit cold today." Another native entered and after a “howdy” all around to those in the ! l.olpl observed: "A bit cooler out.” This was too much for “Wolf." "Gentleman," said the famed host of Sandwich Fast, “If ever It should get (teal cold up this way, and you want a |man to keep a fire going for you, I'll take the Job and 1 won’t leave It, I either." I That night as “Wolf” was rolling | out of the Arctic regions of the Mid jdle West, the porter caine to his sleep ing ear berth and awoke him. ! “What Is it?" asked “Wolf."

These words constitute the will of James C. Romine, filed in the probate court, Wednesday morning. It Is said to be the shortest document of its kind ever filed In Wayne county, it wns written on a small sheet of cheap writing paper. Mr. Romine died Oct. 22, 1908, leav ing personal property valued at 52.000. c/ln Excellent c ßecipe for j| Obstinate Coughs. An obstinate cough is about as dis agreeable an ailment as a person could have, and has many dangerous fea tures. The battle with such an ag gravation can be won within a few hours by utilizing the simple home recipe given below. Granulated Sugar Syrup 13 i-2oi Pinex 2 1-2 oz. Take a pint of Granulated Sugar, add one-half cup water, stir and let boil Just a moment. Put the 2 1-2 oz. of Pinex in a pint bottle and fill It up with tiie Syrup. Shake well and take a teaspoonful every one, two or three hours. Well corked, it keeps perfectly. The Granulated Sugar used will cost you about 4 cents and the Pinex 50 cents. The recipe makes a full piqt of cough syrup, enough to last u long time. The same amount of ready-made [ < ough syrup would cost you about ; $2.60. It Is not. hard to understand the ef fectiveness of this simple remedy when the curative qualities of the in gredients are explained. The Syrup Is an excellent sedative. Pinex is the most valuable concentrated compound of Norway White Pine Extract, and contains all the natural elements which make the air of the pine for ests so effective In curing membrane diseases. In making this remedy ut home, do 1 not expect good results by using any of the weaker pine oils or pine tar preparations. Get the real Pinex itself. If your druggist does not have it, he will gladly get it for you if you ask him. Page Three
