Biase was on his Way to a party driving
south in his automobile on Hudson
Bdulevard, in Xew Jersey, about 9
./clock, when William Birdsall. four
yeara old, of 5400 Hudson Boulevard,
van into the street in front of his car.
Thc man made a quick swervo to avoid
hitting the cluld _.ti.l crashed into an
other car driven by Freddr.ck T.
Meyer, of 411 Franklin Street, Eliza?
beth. ln the mixup young Birdsall was
injured. Biase tooh the boy home in
his automobile and sunimoned Dr. Wil
lisv.r S, Pindar. who said the injury
might be a fracture of the skull.
After making a linancial adjusttnent
with Meyer Biase started for Police
Headquarters to report thc accident,
followed by several other cars, the
owners of which announced that they
intended to see Biase safely to the sta?
tion. On his way Biase hailed, as an
old friend, Joseph C'apiani, of 11737
Hudson Boulevard. who was driving a
wagon with one horse attached. Biase
stopped his machine and shook hands
with Capiani, who did not seem to re
ca!l him, but agreed to take charge of
three bundles which the New Yorker

her and praised her to others ani. made !
her expensive presents. Thia is held!
by the defense to ir.dicate forgiveness
in the fullest sense of the word.
It was pointed out that Mr. Stillman
visited Buffalo with hi3 wife at the
time the "hysterical" letter, so-called,
was written, that he returned with her j
to New York and that they lived to?
gether until Christmas, 1918. It was'
said that a month nrter the birth of
Guy and nine months after the "hys- I

wife a present of an oil painting which j
cost him $4,000. The point that he was
aware of the alleged attentions of j
Beauvais from 1917 on and that he
took no action, but continued to live
with his wife i3 held to refuto his
asaertion that he hnd not forgiven her,

Probation System Is Not
to Blame, but War's Ef?

City Magistrate Alexander Brough,
speaking yesterday afternoon at the
opening session of the twelfth annual
New York City Conference of Charities
nnd Correction, disputcd the conten?
tion, which, hc said, is held in many
quartcrs, that crime waves aro due to
the coddling of delinquents,
He attributcd crime conditions in all
cities largely to the after effects of
the war and to unemployment.
"Those interested in soclal service
work are not coddling first offenders,
as has been declared by offieials r.nd
others who question the system of
parole nnd probation," said Magistrate
Brough. "In order to correct thia mis
taken idea a clear knowledge of what
our work means must be instilled in
the minds of citizens. We are not cod?
dling delinquents, but are seeking to
treat them scientifically in the best
interests of tho community."
In discussing futuro steps in deal
ing with delinquency, Dr. Katharine
B. Davis, general secretary of the I
Bureau of Social Hygiene of New York,
said efforts should be made to treat
children who show signs of becoming
delinquents beforo bad habits are defi?
nitely formed. The school is the best
field for this form of social service
work, she added.
The session yesterday afternoon was
held at the United States Charities
Building, 10 East Twenty - second

Tlie Buzz in the Rocks
By Tkornton W, Burgess
Beware, benvare how near you go
To things of which you do not
knoiv. ?Mother Bear.
This is one of the first laws of life
all through the Green Forest and all
over the Green Meadows. And it is
one of the hardest of all the rules for
the children of the Green Forest and
the Green Meadows to obey, and for
some of the older folk, too, for that
matter. This is because of curiosity.
Anything new, anything seen for the
first time, awakens curiosity, and cu?
riosity wants to know all about it. So
curiosity leads many little people and
some big ones into great trouble or
danger by urging them to go too near
Mother Bear had done her best to
make the twins understand this. Over
and over she had charged them never
to go near a thing until they had
found out all about it. But often the
twins t'orgot, as children will. Or
sometimes they thought they knew
all about a thing when they didn't.
That is a mistake often male by those
old enough to know better.
One day Mother Bear left them for
* little while to play on a ledge of
rottka, the very ledge in which their
father, Buster Bear, had spent the
winter. They liked to play there. It
was great fun to climb about over the
rocks, to hunt for little caves and to
play liide and seek.
They had been playing fcr some
time when they happened to approach
a spot on which jolly, round, bright i
Mr. Sun was shining his broadest. As j
they drow near this spot Boxer's
quick ears caught a strange sound.j
Instantly he stopped, with his head |
cocked to one side, that he might listen
better. Woof-Woof stopped and did the !
same thing, just because Boxer was j
doing it. Then she al3o heard that i
queer sound. It was a sharp whir
ring sound, and somehow those two
little Bears didn't like it. Somehow
it seemed likj a warning. For a min
ute or two they atood perfectly still !
listening. The qu.er sound stopped.
But the instant one of them moved j
it began agai::. i
"Wnat do you BUppo: - n i '.? il'.'"
"1 haven't th. least idea," replied'
i-over^lt souuds to me sort 01 ugly."
"Yofpcaa't tell anything by sound," '
eaid Woof-.Wo-rf. . . 1
"What do you suppose makes it?"
( "Oh, yes, you can!" retorted Buster
"You can tell a great deal by sotvnd.
You know well enough by the sound
of Mother, Bear's voice when she is
angry. You know you do."
Woof-Woof grinned. "Well," said
W/S, "this doesn't sound very ugly
to me. And I do want to find out
what makes it. That won't do any
harm. Anyway, there isn't anything
big enough to hurt us around here.
Come on, let's hunt for the thing
that makes that noise."
Since his experience with Prickly
Porky the Porcupine and his experi?
ence with Jimmy Skunk, which you
know all about, Boxer had grown cau
tious. To be cautious, you know, ls
to be careful to make sure of things.
So Boxer was not so eager to hunt
for the cause of thut quee* sound
Thc more he listened to it ,he less
he liked it.
"Fraidy! Fraidy!" taunted Woof
Hooi. "You're afraid, Boxer Bear.
That's what's the matter with you?
you re afraid!"
Now, Boxer didn't like that. No lit?
tle Bear would. Besides, if the
truth be told, his curiositv was just
as great as Woof-Woof's. *He wanted
lo know what that queer whirr in the
rocks meant and what made it. So
Boxer jolned Woof-Woof in huntirg

700 Agents on Vacation
With the announcement of the ap?
pointment of Judge Hart, word was re?
ceived from tho Internal Revenue
Bureau that about 700 prohibition en?
forcement agents in various parts of
the country havo been laid off tem?
porarily. This was made necessary
through the failure of Congress to
provide $260,000 asked by the Prohi?
bition Commissioner to pay the sal?
aries of field ngents until the end of
the present fiscal year. The men will
be given a forty-day vacation without

confiscated a still and a large quantity
of moonshine liquor which they allege
were found in a basement room at 453
West Forty-eighth Street. Patrolmen
Collins and Brennan say they saw two
men run from the house on their ap
proach. When they examined the
doors to the basement they found they
were battercd, and expressed the opin?
ion that the two men were attempting
to steal the liquor.
Taxicab Driver Arrested
Timothy Donovan, the driver ?? a
tr.xicab which was standing at the tioor

charge that Donovan was waiting to

that a quantity of choice liquors

had returned in place of his liquor was
something that resembled pure water
with a little coloring. Inspector Hini

Chests of Drawers
That quaint and' con?

the chest of drawers, is
one of the most pleasant
things that can be brought
lo the country house. For
bedrooms they are, of
course, most suitable and
have a very definite prac?

decorative one. In the
halls and living rooms of
ihe country house the chest
of drawers is dignified and
charming and can hold in
numerable things that oth
erwise have no place for
safe keep ing. Then, too,
the print and fabric col?

his . library to hold his
