for h. purse of t3. Ho got tho whole purse.
A shprt time later ho wdn $5. Ho handed
It to his dad and foreman. The next

. FATHER LAURETTA'S ADVICE.
Sir months ago. 'the elder Lauletta went
to his son and said: "Tommy Howell, my
boy, It Is time you were married. For
advertising purposes you are 24 years old,
hut 'remember you havo been fighting for
JS years bb a professional. Between you
nnd me, you are getting somo older than
23, and 'that Is a sklddoo ago for' single.
men of Cur race. I will find you a wife."
He went to Sermano Negro, 915 South
th' street Sermano' Is a man "6f means,
thee .means coming from a milk .route ;
and among his possessions was Angelina,
10 years old and fair. The match was
' soon made. Tommy courted his bride four
As was stated, tho bridal reception was
last night and this morning. The uncle
of the bridegroom conducted tho orches
tra. "Frenchy Al" and "Chappie tho
Commission Man" conducted the bar.
After the fights nt the Olympla Ath
letic Club last night. Hnrry Edwards,
Eddie Holland, Professor of ' National
Boxing Frank O'Brien, Pal and Willie
Mooro, Young Erne, Billy McGonlgle.
Dick Curloy and Adam Ryan, who used
to fight, but Is now conditioning fighters
and "up-to-tho-mlnute" business men,
stopped at Qarrlck Hall.
Both Young Erne and the bridegroom
flvo times tried to knock the head off the
other. They will no doubt fight again,
but last night Erne grasped the hand of
Tommy and wished him luck. Erne Is an
old married 'man.
All In all, the reception to Tommy nnd
his bride was all that could be desired.
When fighters meet together, and
specially when they travel to drink a
toast to a fellow mlttman and his bride,
every one has to be good.

Stills for manufacture of zollne, tho
new two-cent-a-gatlon substitute for
gasoline, will shortly be brought tp Phil
adelphia by automoblllsts to give the fuel
as thorough a test as given at Indian
apolis. Orders have been placed by sev
eral well-known motorists, and the stills
will be sent here as Boon as they can be
Announcement was made In Indianapo
lis, where automobile manufacturers put
sollne through a rigid test, that Instead
of marketing the product at so much
per gallon, It has been decided to market
tho still. A formula for making the fuel
will accompany each still. This will allow
the consumer to manufacture his own
fuel and keep as large a supply on hand
as ho may desire.
The manufacture of zollne consists
mainly In the collection of large quanti
ties of rain water, for this fluid forms
about nine-tenths of the Ingredients' of
zollne. The other Ingredients consist of
certain coal tar products, chiefly naphtha
line, which can be bought at Bmall prices.
SOLVES FUEL PROBLEM.
The still can be placed in any back
yard and the assembling of It In quite
simple. Thf manufacture of the stills
will begin at once, and those back of
tho project state that with the stills on
the market the high cost of motor fuel
will be solved.
The flrst opportunity the East will have
to cee the new product will be at the New
York Automobile Show. A still Is to be
placed at the show and zollne produced.
The mixing of the chemicals with rain
water will bo open to public Inspection.
Philadelphia automoblllsts have placed
orders for these stills as soon as they
are manufactured, but their orders will
probably not be filled before the flrst of
A 1000-MILE TEST.
The final test of the effect of zollne on
the motor of the automobile used In the
1000-mile run on the Indianapolis Speed
way has proven that .the fuel has no
chemical effeot on the engine. Accord
ing to the report of a technical commit
tee the test has showed zollne to bo supe
rior to gasoline In many ways, besides
being more economical.
Officials of gasoline refineries acknowl
edge that If zollne Is what Its promoters
claim It will mean the end of gasoline
for use In motor cars and launches.
While they have taken no official action,
It Is announced the subject will probably
be considered at the next meeting of the
National Petroleum Association.

$200,000 YEARLY ON MEATS
Joseph W. Salus Compliments Di
rector of Supplies for Municipal
An average of JIOO.OOO a year has been
saved tho city In tho purchase of meato
and poultry since tho Incumbency of Di
rector Loob, according to a letter written
the Director by Josoph W. Salus, of the
Arm of A. Salus & Son, packers.
The testimonial to Director Locb's
operation of tho Department of Supplies
came after a bid of tho Salus Mrm for
furnishing $24,000 worth of meats to tho
Bureaus of Charity and Correction had
been rejected becauso It was not nccom
panlcd by tho required bond and tho
award was made to the Froosch Pack
Mr. Salus called on Director Loeb and
learned that, although his bid wns K0
lower than tho ono that received tho con
tract, tho rendvertlslng of tho contract
would cost tho city $1S0 and delay receiv
ing of the supplies until late In Docember.
Ho wos convinced the Director has
adopted the proper course. In advising
Air. Loeb of his belief ho wrote:
"I have calculated that the various
changes mean n. saving of at lepst $200,000
a year during your administration, and
lve opportunity to other than favored
contractors to obtain business."
Salus was a recipient of contracts under
the past Administrations.
LIBEL CHARGE IN COURT
Land Agent Sues Ruthenian for Pub
Testimony In the libel suit of Bazll J.
Motolltz, president of tho European
Colonization Company, against tho
Ruthenian National Union, publishers of
the Freedom, a It u then Ian newspaper,
wns heard before Judge Wheeler In Mu
nicipal Court today.
The basis of tho suit was an article,
alleged to have been written by a farmer,
who accuses the company of having
duped several Ruthenlans Into buying
sand lots near MlUvllle, N. J., represent
ing the worthless land as farming soil.
Tho author stated when he discovered

BEWARE OF COLD STORAGE
TURKEYS AT LOW PRICES
Somo Dealors Inclined to Eorget Law
When Offering Ancient Gobblers.
Thousands of Philadelphia housewives
are considering the turkey problem to
day. Each is examining tho stock of
gobblers and each Is wondering how sho
can be sure that tho one sho buys Is a
"sure-enough good turkey." It Is n
hard problem, but there are a few funda
mental points which should bo considered.
If tho price of the bird is exceptionally
low it Is wlffo to proceed cautiously, for
thero are many cold-storage turkoys held
over that must be disposed of, and al
though dealers are compelled by law
to declare cold-storago products as such,
somo aro Inclined to forget the law and
offor tho birds as fresh turkoy of a
It Is hard for nny ono not nn expert
to Identify a cold-storage turkey.
If a turkoy Is discolored, with a
tpndcncy to npp'ear green, tho bird has
'spoiled In shipment. It is n "green"
turkoy thousands of these woro con
demned In this city last year as being
unfit for sale and it Is not wise to tako
any chances on such birds. On the
other hand, a turkey that appears blue
Is not spoiled; It Is merely a spring fowl
that has not been properly fattened.
Those who wish to bo confident of the
gobbler to bo purchased will select a
plump, bird, with flrb, white skin, clear
eyes and wings and neck that do not
appear dried and discolored.
