This tended to prevent, owners of

their tenants a E cent telephone call

cause of charges Imposed on switch
boards, extra trunk wires and exten

rate would have been possible because
of wholesale uses of measages at 21-1
centa each. But In small houses. It
averaged above 5 cents.
The commission took the ground that
any expense Incurred by owners for
operatora or attendance could not be
considered In rate making, because
that waa either offset by value of free

else was Indirectly charged In the

Taking the company's proposed
schedule for this class, the Commis

left unchanged the rate for extension
telephones at M per year each for the

twenty or mure. As a .result they
figured out the following:
A ten family apartment bouse could
obtain under the new ratea a switch
board, one trunk line, ten extension
telephones and ,00O messages, which
waa considered a fair quota, for $270
per year, which la equivalent to 4 1.3
centa per message. The same service
with two trunk lines would cost 4.1
centa per message. In a large house
with 50 telephonea and Increased con
sumption of calls the rate would be
approximately 4 centa.
Under auch a schedule the com
mission considered that tenants
could expect five cent calls. It Is
a question, however, to be settled
between tenant and landlord, as the
commission cannot dictate the charge

porter about this suspect. Ths family
consists of Otto Splngler, hla wife,
their daughters, Helen, fourteen, and
HUdegarde, eight, and their son
Alfred, six.
"I never saw the man," said Mrs.
Splngler, "but my children told me
of him many times and I often looked
for him. He was rather old, perhaps
sixty, aa they described blm; tall,

annoyed by the same man. I fear
that he has come back, entered the
block somewhere elae, passed over the
roofs and come dawn here. I don't
see how else the murderer could have
been In this building. I was In the
hall on this floor for some minutes
before little Leonore came In with
the pall of milk.
"Ever since the atrange man had
annoyed the children I bad forbidden
our girls to go Into any part of the
house alone after dark. Last evening,
not long after 7.18, HUdegarde aaked
leave to go Into the hallway. I went
with her but remained standing near
our door. A gaa Jet waa burning over
my head and on the floor above there
waa another Jet burning, so that If

Then she went on up toward her

"I am sure that no one could have
come up the stairs from the atreet
after that for I was In my office at
the front of the apartment and must
have heard any one that passed.
There was no sound until fifteen min
utes later, when I heard Mlsa Johnson
cry out when abe found the poor child
groaning on the floor."
Leonore Colin, when abe died, atlll
held a lemon drop. She had not
bought any candy, as at first reported,
and this waa all ehe had. It waa
about an Inch long and had white
stripes. The police have searched all
the candy shops and stationery stores
In the regtorl, but have not been able
to find any candy of the same pat

had given the child this candy, prom
ising to give her more, then entered
the house next door and mads hla way

stairs In time to meet her Juat before
ahe reached the safe shelter of her

would have prevented the little girl
from crying out in alarm at sight of

Mrs. Jungen looked after the girl

Look back at tour childhood dayi.
Remember , the "dose" mother insisted
on csstoroil, calomel, cathartics. How
you hated them, bow you fought against
taking them.
With our children it'a different.
Mothers who cling to the old form of
physio simply don t realise wbat tbey
do. The children's revolt Is well
founded. Their tender little "iniidea"
are injured by them.
If your child's stomach, liver and
bowels need cleansing, give only deli,
clous "California Syrup of Figa." Its
action is positive, but gentle. Millions
of mothers keep this bsrmleis "fruit
laxative" handy; tbey know children
love to take it; that it never fails to
clean the liver and bowels and sweeten
