how to turn in a flro alarm.
Robinson ran to tho fire-box at
Madison Avenue and Sovonty-slxth
Street and turned tho door handle.
When ho camo back, nnd twenty min
utes had elapsed without any sign of
the flro apparatus, they asked him
whether ha had pullod the hook.
"Which riooli?" asked Itoblnson.
Tho alarm was then telephoned by
QrenviUo Vernon, a third floor'resl
dent. The flro was discovered by
W. jr. rtomc, proprietor of the Lee
Garaxe, No. SI Kast Seventy-sixth

the street, and Mrs. Gurdon Howe,
a resident on tho fourth floor, was
burned about tho loft wrist whllo at
tempting to drag her Airedale tcrrlor
jrom her apartmont.
For twenty minutes Corcoran tried
to fight the flro with th building hoso.
which proved to be little- better than
'a sieve. Chief Kenlon, on his arrival,
Vvaa incensed over tho delay in turn
ing in the alarm,
"It la an outrngo," said Chief Ken

Isadora KIcncrt and Abraham Kloncrt nobody
lias qulto decided which Is the brother of which aro cclobrltlcs la I'aterson.
And the oilier day lsadoro put one over on Abraham by announcing In the
I'aterson newspapers that ho has persuaded nh Assemblyman of Passaic
County to Introduce a bill In tho New Jersey Legislature making marriage
compulsory upon all males and females moro than thirty years old.
According to tho KIcncrt plan a census will bn taken of available but
reluctant males and females in January Iierod, Tctrarch of Judca, had
nothing on lsadoro you perceive and on Saint Valontino's Day Feb. li
the names of men and women uro to, bo drawn separately from a receptacle
and Bachelor U-2 Is to be united In wedlock forthwith to Spinster 11-2. He
will be given, however, thirty days
his own choosing.
WHERE THE PROCE38 OF GET-
TINQ A MATE IS ALL WRONG.
I saw Mr. lsadoro Kloncrt yesterday
afternoon In his office at No. 1.0
Washington Btrcct, I'aterson, and wn
discussed his plan of "marrlace by
conscription" at some length. Mr.
KIcncrt is a metropolitan person, who
assured mo that 'he spent at least
four days a week In New York City;
that ho is a bachelor, way past his
own ago limit of thirty, and that there
is absolutely nothing In this proposi
tion of taking ono girl after another
out to dinner and to the theatro and
waking up next morning richer in ex.
pcrlcnce but poorer by a J50 bill..
No. tako it from Mr. Kloncrt. the
real thing is to ncttlo down with a nico
old-fashioned girl not too prim, how
ever nono of your narrow-minded
ones, and live happily ever afterward.
After an hour's conversation with
tho ndvocato of "marriage by con
scription," I gathered that hit Ideal it
Juit tha uiual mstculine conception
of s croit bttwten a peach snd a
prune, I trust Luther Ilurb.mk will
turn his attention to Its production
some day.
Hut girls! splnstcr.il widows! Mr.
Kloncrt himself Is a bachelor. He
has a largo practice. Ho Is well
dressed and llko most firm believers
In Uio old-fashioned girl' he seems to
possess tho very quality of speed ho
deplores in her modern sister.
"Men of to-day aro afraid to marry.
That Is why I am calling upon the
New- Jersey Legislature to help them
out," ho told mo. "I'd bo vory glad
to have tho Legislature make up my
mind for mo. I know plenty of girls
but I'm nfrald. They're all so speedy.
What man can keep up with thorn? 1
How many girls of to-day who want
to get married know how to cook a
good meal? How many of thom caro
nbout unythlng except going to a the
dormant? Thoy dress beyond the
young men. They eat beyond them.
What fellow with 3,00O a year has a
chanca of wlnnlrlg tho girl he loves?
HAPPY MARRIAGES NOT FOR
BIG CITIES.
If he does win hor what chanca has
he of keeping her In a city a big city,
particularly? She wants to llvo In a
neighborhood ho can't afford: to wear
Krench gowns and have her slippers
made to order, and by and by she
meets tho fellow with $20,000 who can
glvo her tlicso things and who does
give thorn to her on tho side. I tell
you marrlago In a. big city Is a nuro
loss. Tho happy marriages occur In
small cities and towns."
"if you really believed In marriage,
Mr. Klenert, would you think It must '
be made compulsory?" I asked.
"Hut I DO believe In marriage," the
young lawyer answered. "When a
man and woman aro properly muted
nothing can surpass their happiness.
Kvery man has his Ideal girl, nnd
when ho meets her hn does not rest
until she Is hla wife."
"What. Is you Ideal wife?" I In
quired. "I'rom the picture of lilllle
llurko on your desk, I have guessod
that she Is red-hoaded."
"You're wrong," Mr. Kloncrt an
swered, blushing to the color of Miss
Hurko'a hulr. "I want a brunette I
have never been very partial to
blondes. My ideal gill can cook a
good meal, wears senslblo clothes, Is
willing to have children and to look
after them, Instead of rushing ore to
bridge pat ties."
WHAT THE IDEAL WIFE
SHOULD BE.
"Docs your idcul possess lutein
gonco?" 1 naked as huputully as If
I did not know the answer.
"Well," Mr. Klenert uuswered, "alio
must know something, but not too
much."
"Not so much as ou, for Instance?"
1 sunt.
"Well, no," Mr. Klenert admitted.
"A nmn doc wain his wito to look
up to lilm n little, you know. Hut 1
should not bo too particular on that
point. If n man and a woman aro
really mated, cuoli little questions
don't matter. I'm sure I shouldn't,
seo tho mental dofects In u girl that
I really loved. On the other band,
ehi nted nut be a dazrllnr beauty,
State, and particularly tho City of
Kt
In which to select a eugenic mate of
It Is the face which nltructs at first,
but unless there Is romcthlntr li.'irk nf
it. It novcr holds it man long enough
tor mm to consider a wedding."
"You are obviously nast thirty tho
ago you fix for compulsory mar
riage?" I said. "Why Is It that you
aro still a bachelor?" - And I stated
hastily that my interest in this mat
ter was purely academic.
"That's what I'd like to know," Mr.
KIcncrt answered. "Maybo it is bo
cause I know so many nlco girls.
Mnybo It Is becnuie, llko so manv
men, I like my freedom. Maybo X
am afraid the girls all seem n hn n
speeded up I don't know. All I know
it I havo reached an ago when I see
thcro Is nothing In this buslnosa of
taking ono girl and then another out
for dinner nnd the theatre. What
have you got tho next day? Nothing
but n pockotbook In mourning nnd
tho certainty that tho girl will go out
that evening with nnothcr man, but
that when sho feels like It -she'll ring
you up. Jolly you into the belief that
sho likes you nnd that you are a
pretty nice fellow, and so on, over
and over again. Thoro Is nothing In
that. That is why I want tho Legls.
lature. to compel bachelors to marry
and sottlo down. And if thn bill
passes I hope my namo will bo the
first to be drawn In tho lQttcry, and
that they will tako mo and marry mo
to somo nlco girl."

Authorities Discover That Jean
Kircher Is Gone Only When

.lean Kircher, a burglar serving n
term of seventeen years nnd six
months, escaped from Sing Sing Pri
son Eomo time, during tho night, nnd
tho officials of the Institution aro
utterly Ignorant of bow ho got out and
when.
Tho first alarm sent out from the
prison to tho police of Westchester
County mid New York City stated
that Lewis klrchman, serving a term
of twenty years for second degree
murder, committed In Kings County,
had escaped. Klrchinan's descrip
tion was flashed broadcast before it
was discovered that ho wan still In
the prison Then tho nlarm for Klrch
man was recalled and another was
sent out stating that tho escaped
prisoner was Jean Kircher.
Not until tho discovery of the cs
capo was two hours old did the
Sing Sing authorities begin to send
out accurato news and a description
of tho prlsonor.
! Tho authorities had not decided on
what kind of a story to ten bout tho
escape at 11.30 o'clock. It appears

His absence- was not noted, how
ever, until his vacant chair loomed
up In the mess hall. Then tho con-,
vlcts wero ordered back to tho cell
houso. and the dormlOrlcs and were
checked up'. Klrchcr's cell was empty,
but on his cot was a cunningly con
trived dummy.
From thu fact that Kircher had put
tho dummy on his cot It Is assumed
that ho had csenpod when tho con

could not havo broken from his cell
after ho was lockod In, according to
tho prison authorities. They believe
ho had tho dummy ready, placed It
on his cot, slipped out of tho cell

where within tho walls before the

!. I Kin an and I.ennon to-day, on a com
Tt plaint made by Frank T. Oarbarluo,
.. .Special Agent of the Deportment of
;;;'juitice nt Philadelphia, w'lll bring in
Ulght, ncordlng to Oarbarlno, a most
J I elaborate, and widespread blackmail
plot which has netted more than 12.10,
!.;,000 In the past eighteen months. Tho
blackmailers, Oarbarlno says, posing
$ns agents of tho Departmtnt of Jus-
' I l'c0 anJ uslnB young nnd attractive
women as accomplices prejed on
wealthy nnd prominent men vlstlnf
Aimntic city una other Jersey re
1 sorts by threatening them with pro
, sccutlon under the Mann White Plave
Act.
A well knuwn up-State New York
Jurist, Oarbarlno stated at rollco
Headquarters, paid the blackmailers
$2,500, A member of Congress whoso
Innmn Is known tho breadth of tho
nation handed over $5,000, Tho
mother of a young society man in
Philadelphia produced 4,0p0.
Collins and his male nnd female ac
complices, according to- Oarbarlno,
watched tho big hotels along tho coast
for the arrival of men of wealth and
prominence. One or two of the mem
bers of tho gang apparently had a
wide knowledge of public and wealthy
men, becauso. they were ablo to spot
several elderly, dlgnlflod Americans
from rcmoto parts of the United
States who registered at Atlantic
City Hotels under assumed names,
nnd ns -husbands of young and lively
women.
The brains back of tho Collins gang,
Oarbarlno ays, realized the Immense
possibilities for blackmail which are
latent In tho Mann White Slave Act.
According to Oarbarlno. tho black
mailers working under tho guidance
of Collins caused to bo printed some-
where In Philadelphia, ounnlltle. nt
blank warrants, letter heads, ultl
davit blanks and other forms used by
uiu uvpiu-uucnc oi justice.
Carbarlno says tho Collins outfit
would spot on arriving celobrltv and
nolo whother he was Accompanied by
urn wua or nomeuouy else, or was un
accompanied.
If tho prospective victim was uh
accompanied ono of thn fascinntlng
femalo members of the gang would
proceed to make his acquaintance.
Then would corno a raid on u hotel
room by two men wearing Depart
ment of Justlco badges, the arrest of
tho man and woman and ii start for
Philadelphia by automobile.
The supposedly enmeshed prisoners
would bn taken to tho building in
which Garbitrlno's otllco Is located
and would bo started In the direction
of tho Philadelphia branch of tho De
partment of Justice. One of tho bo
gus dotectlvos would say that hu was
thirsty nnd suggest that all hand.i
tako a drink before going Into tho
nwesomo preseneo or lliu represen
tative ot rncio aam.
Invariably tho suggestion would bo
entertninud nnu tno party would ro
pair to a qitlot place In tho neighbor
hood, whero tho bogus Government
agents would offer to "tlx tho caso'
for a certain sum of money.
Complaints nbout the activities of
tno bogus Department or Justice) or
flcors were received for a year nnd
a half before uurlmrino ana his mun
got a clue. This was obtained
through the Now York police, who.
last Friday night, raided ii couplo
of flats In an apartment house on
Audubon Avenue and captured night
men and women accused of robbing
thn booths In publlc tele phonu pay
stations.
In tho loom of William I-ewlH. ono
of thn prisoners, was found a trunk
containing a quantity of what wmu
apparently warrants, nflldavH blanks,
letter neatls nnd other forms used by
tho Department of Justlcti In thn
Philadelphia llulcuu. The meal po
lice communicated with (inrliarlno,
wno ciunti over and started an in
vestlgatlon.
It was found thnt the trunk be
longed to Collins, nnd that Collins
wus arrested on Oct. 10, 1313, on a
charge of trying to extort J2.500 from
Georgo H. Ilaeon, a banker of No. 10
