This depflrtmcnt haa entered the second stage of eervice to
Tribune readers. Primarily it was intended merely to separale
the sheep of advertising from the goats?and hang a bell on the
goats. But now it goes beyond mere identification. lt embraces
? human nature study of both sheep and goats. You are invited
to as.Ut. For every letler printed in this department descnb
ing eaperiences?pleasant or unpieasant?with advertisera of
merchandise, excepting only patent medicinea, The Tribune will
?end $2.00, payable in any merchandise of any Tribune adver?
tiser. For the most important letter each month a special priao
of $50.00, payable similarly, will be awarded. Name printed or
withheld?as you prefer, but must be signed or we will not know
where to send the priae order. Address: The Ad-Visor, Tho

Curious, how he got his cradantiala. In May. when the \\omens
Clubs were in eonvention here, there was B Fashion .show at Madison
Square Garden and the General Federation Magazine had a booth. Ihe
.how wasr't successful and the magazine took its demonstrator away. But
its display had Ul be left until the show was over.
Later, when the magazine sent for its bclongings, the booth had been
cleaned up and there was no trace of what had been in it

Sneaking of guarantee? of one kind and another, I inclose for
perusaT clipping from "Physlcal Culture." which aecompanied. an
article on eerUin spnghtly sBorclsss to be perfonaed with the aaaiat

The man who wrote the "guarantee" has a better rense of humor than
a sense of fairness.

he come back from the grave to get his refund or can his executors ar

I think Altman's return to The Tribune will be orofitable to two fine
institutions-Altman's and The Tribune. G. W. 13.
Altman's return is profit able to our readers and to us. Ohvimisly it
is profitable to Altman's or thc return would not have occurred. But the
noat profital le feature of thc incident for all concerned is that it ompha

IVople can see when they are being treated well, whether their plasses
are on or off.
Recently in this rolumn was published a lotter which objected to "the
claque and clamor of eoncerns whose loudest arpum.'tit is a 'guarantee.
They do not _____ to s.c," continued this correspondent, "that the very
offer of a 'gtiarmn.ee' li ? eonfeasion that thoir namee and reputations are
not sufficioiit alone to securo the buyer's contidciuo."
Apropos of which comes this communication:
I ai u* seasid-I for a moment the reputable merrhandising coneern.
The guarantee of thi R< g* tt Peol Company of "Money refunded at any
time if the purchaaor is d" doea not, in the slightest. appeal to
me BS "a eonfsssion that their name and reputation are not suffleient
alone to BCCBI- the bu\. r' cont'xieiice," nor can l believe that any one
red with a great confidence in any company of hkc
Btabillty that fldvancefl such a guarantee.
(j eertaialy true that thfl method of giving a guarantee has
mueh to do with the reiep'ior. it meets. There is to me no "claque and
clamor" in the Koger* I'eet advertisement of guarantee, nor in the ad
rertiseBMBt of guarantee of numerous other reputable and up-to-date
merchants.
1 thoroughly agree that "the only valuable guarantee is the one
that is adsglly onneCSIsBiy," but would like to add "so far as the
guarantor is concerned " Satisfaction is u very undependabie cemmodity
and many repu'ahle merchandisers do not care to bind themselves to a
aaiversal satisfaction or reimhutasaseBt of their eastom-rs. since they
must laevitahll meet many an unreasor.able person whom it is practi
eally ImpO-aibi* to Batiflfy. Therefore, when a merchant guaruntees
nie satisfaction or money returned I feel that ho must huvo confi
di nce m thc greater part ef the public; almost involuntanly 1 range

Albany, Auc. 11 The Wicks inve*tl

any attempt by New York City milk
dealers to booft prices. According to
Senator Wicks, head of the committee,
person* or concern* makinj- *uch an
effort will bo summoned before the
committee aad asked to explain.
While thi- committee, after travcl
Hng "Vi r aixtacn counties of the state,

the middleman is getting infflcient

, is taking unwarranted action and one
' that cannot* be satisfactorily explained
! from eaisting contracts wiajS producer?.
Price Jurnps Will Be Fought.
"Any 8uch effort at this time will be
| followed by as prompt an investigation
as the committee can make. As to what
may be the tinal result in the distri?
bution of the apparently needed ad?
vance to the producer and as to how
this shall be distributed between con
sumer and the distributer the com?
mittee is unable to .say until the in?
quiry shall include transportation ani
distribution problems."
The committe-e has uneartned manv
proofs of method* employed. While it
l poi ? ible to remedy market condi?
tions by cooperation of farmers in some
' communities, the committee has learn
? ed that such cooperated plants have
', heen in many instances subjected to a
sijuee*ce.
Evidence has been obtained which
shows that station* run on the co
'? operative plan are eliminatcd by quiet
| ]> picking u|) akaraa until control is
had, or by rairing prices in the ncif-h
j borhood to a tij-ure whirh the co
i operative station cannot meet.
The coiimitt"ce has found no evidence
I of actual active competition in the pur
) chase of milk. There has been a sor?
1 of understanding to keep off the other
! fcllow's territory and to stand togeth
' er in making one price to the farmer.
Cream Skimmcd Off.
In three cases brought to light last
week H WBS admitted that cream had
: been -kimmed from milk later sold in
New York City. Milk received at the
station is held over a day in the coolei,
; and the cn am is skimmed the next
: morning. Enough is left so that tha
rnilk will still pass the lei*al test.
When cream sells at close to $15 a
i can it can be Mia that a can or so will
meet the cost of a fartory's operation
! four hours. The milk is shipped to
Sam York as "whole milk." This trick
| is prectised in some of the pmaller
I plants, not in the larger ones.
The committee has heard no rire-t
! threats af a strike if next month'i
contracts are at a highoi -igurc. From
the attendar.ee at heaiiagl 80 far it is
cvident that the farmers BM up in
arms over present prieea, dcclaring

HIS 3 WIVES ALL
KNEW OF OTHERS
Suit Shows William Wai
lace Snyder Had Trio
of Households.
WILL LEFT ALL
TO WIFE NO. 3
Administerlng It, She Found No.
1 Wealthy, No 2 Work
ing Woman.
Through a suit filed In the Dudson
County Circuit Court by Mrs. "Sarah
Whitenack Snyder, of 127 Elm Avenue,
Mount Vernon, N. Y, against Mr*.
Lucinda Fabst Snyder, of 318 Seventh
Street, Harrison, N. J., it became known
yesterday that the late William Wal?
lace Snyder, wealthy real estate owner
and graduatc of New York 1'niversity,
who died in February, 1915, had three
wives, that he maintained three house?
holds within a radius of twenty-tive
miles and that each wife knew of the
existence of the other two.
A further remarkable circumstance
in the case is that investigation ehowed
the neighbor* in all three insUnces
were generally aware art the ?ituation.
Yet for eighteen years Snyder !ived
the life of an ordinary respectable ,
citizen.
At the time of his death ln Mount
Vernon, where he lived two day* a
week with wife N'o. 3, obituanes ap
peared gimultaneously in the papers of
Newark and Mount Vernon. In one,
he was "survived by his wife,' who was
Miss Phoebe Baldwin. of Orange, N. J."
ln the Westchester paper the name of
the surviving wuiow was appropriate
to the neighborhood. From the New?
ark notice it was learned that Mrs.
Phoebe Baldwin Snyder, of 35 Maw
thorne Avenue. Eaat Orange, a sister
of Samaal to. Baldwin, treasurer of the
Mutual Benefit Life lnsurance Hom
pany, of Newark, was wife No. 1. No
mention was made of wife No. 2, ro
liding at Marnson.
Left All to Wife No. 3.
A will, offered for probate at White
Plain* hv wife No. 3, sUited that Sny- |
der married Miss Whitenack, at Buf?
falo, on March 9, IMi, By its terms,
a!l his property goes to wife No. 3.
Thus it came about that, in going over
Snvder's estate, hhe came upon a mem
Oiandun of hia property la Marnson.
Immediately she went to :;18 Seventh
Street and demanded that wife No. I
quit the prcmises. Mrs. Lucinda Pabst
Snyder, the occupant, who tirst met
Snyder in Trenton in 18h7, and lived
with him for twenty-nine years, ro
fu';rd to vacate the modest home that
she claims her husband built for her
with her aid when he was strugghng
to ?-et ahead.
Whereupon wife No. 3 brought suit
for the property, plus $o*.000 in rent,
which she claims us due since PJ10.
Wife No. 2 placed her easa in tho
hands of former Judge Thomas A.
Daris. From his summer home at
Alienhurst Mr. Datia said last r.ight
that he would offer as evidence in de
fenee of his client a bundle of letters
which Snyder had sent to her.
According to the records, Snyder
married Misa Ph-i-be Baldwin, at that
r:e of the belles of the Orange*.
in 187'". Me was the popular son of
John Snyder, onr of the wcalthicst men
in tba town, Me peaaaaaad a pleasing
personaHty and a lucratiTo law prac?
tice. In Bddition, his father had name.i
one of Oraago'i prottioat thorough
Wallace Street, after his son.
At her home, on Mawthorne Avenue, '
which is in an cxclusive residential
section. the first Mrs. Snyder yesterday
angrily refused to give any informa?
tion on the subject. It is understood
she is wealthy, and has no intention
of eiftering into a legal squabble for
her share of her hushand's estate.
Snyder's establishment at Mount
Vernon, which Ifl on Chester Mill, was
boarded up yesterday, and neighbors ?
said that Mrs. Snyder had gone to Bed
ford Hills, N. Y., for the summer.
Saved to Iftnld Houae.
In. a little three story frame house
in Marrison, however, a small, white
haii'd woman, with a gentle voice and
a careworn smile, told how she had
slaved for Snyder because she loved
him.
Mrs. Lucinda Fabst Snyder is sixty- '?
one years old and spear , with a slight
(ierman accent. She came to this coun
trjf when a girl and met Snyder in
Trenton. At tha*. time he owned a fancy
goods store in Newark, with a branch
in Trenton.
Mra, Snyder was baking in her tidy
kitchen when tho reporter called. She
explained how her husband h.ul little
BlOney when she tirst met him and BaVW
they had worked to build the house. She
had BOrtad hrirks, tawod wood and
riddan errands on her bicvcle.
Mrs. Snyder iaid that she learned of
Wiffl No. I the tirst year he married
her. Previously she had known of
No. 1. Soon after his third marriage
Snyder brought this wife to Arlington.
At that tlme Wife No. 3 was livine;
within one mile of No. 2 and two mile*
of No. 1.
"1'eople ured to talk," said Mr*. Sny?
der, "but he used to laugh it off. He '
wa* pleasant and made friends so
easy."
Later Snyder moved to Irvington
with Wife NO. 2. There he built a
home for Sara Whitenack in her name.
Subl qaently, he trunsferred the house
to his own name and sold it.
Found a Will.
In a suit of clothes which Snyder
left at his Marrison home Mrs. Snyder
ba found a will. By the terms
of this instrument his entire estate
goes to hi* executor*, with instructions
to pay the sum of $50 per week to
Phcebe B. Snyder during her natural life
if she shall so long remain unmarned,
and to Sara P. Whitenack, daughter of
Aftfti i Whitenack, of Pleaaant Valley,
N. J.. the sum of $;>0 during her
n'atural life if she shall remain so long
unmarned." It also directs that any
income above $100 be tsaai to educate
his children Melen, borr. in Irvington
? ".'. and William Wallace, born in
Mount Vernon in 1901. No mention is
made of three other children subse
quently born. There Ifl a provi*'.<>ri ti
