They aro full of stlck-to-lt-ivcness, I

And wo havo got ln this country 23 uni

"If a boy will not obey his father nnd

times Is tho curse of tho Idle mother.

they never try to do anything in the

collego will soon fade out of the minds
of tho girl and boy, but what they learn
at your kneo will stick when all else Is
gone. There nre few things I think mora
important than conversation. Think of
the good we could do in our homo or tho
pain wo can give with our tongues. Lov
ing conversation Is a great panacea many
a. time. In many a homo there Is none.
There is no regretful goodby when tho
children go to school, no affectionate
greeting when they come home, no fire
side chats meals are eaten In silence,
the old man nover speaks except when
he growls and wants some one to pass
him mora grub; for all practical purposes
it might as well be a deaf and dumb
asylum. Then there is the scolding In
the home, and the "Don't, don't, don't.'
And of all the devil-inspired sentences,
this ls the limit. A child sbould be seen

respect by punishing them "when com

I beg of you, don't overdress them; If

LEO A. FRANK INNOCENT,
SAYS DETECTIVE BURNS
Atlanta Man Victim of Police Con
spiracy, Declares Foe of Crlmo.
Tho direct statement that Leo A,
Frank is Innocent of the charge of
murder and that his conviction Is a
frame-up of tho Atlanta police, was
made last night by William J, Burns, the
famous detective. In an address before
members of the Merlon Clvlo Association.
Tho detective was tha guest ot honor
of tho association at a dinner held in
the headquarters of tho Overbrook Golf
Club,-nt Overbrook. He spoke also of the
necessity for an efficient police force and
declared this cannot be had while there
Is politics In It.
"The conviction of Leo A, Frank, at
Atlanta, Ga.," said the deteotlve, "was e.
deliberate frame-up of tha police of that
city, who, when they wero confronted
with tho real evidence, waved It aside as
Inconsequential. I myself fully Investi
gated tho case, and I know that Frank
Is Innocent.
"There are hundreds of men today In
Jails, serving sentences for various
Crimea, who are tha victims of deliberate
frame-ups by tha pollco, ln an atfort to
clear themselves."
The detective declared tha hold of the
old-time politician on the police forces of
large cities Is going fast He declared
there can ba no efficient police force
until politics Is thrown out of It. He
said the head of a police force today
mast be honest and efficient or the news
papers would arouse publlo opinion, and
throw him out
Edward Bok, president of the associa
tion, and editor ot tha Ladles' Home
Journal, presided at the meeting. He
told the members Mr. Burns had been at
worlt some time In Merlon.
Among the speakers were Dr. Joseph
H. Odell and William J, Conlen, one of
the founders ot the association.

Contrasting the smallncss of the retail busi

years ago, some progress is evident. A fllekof the

and the advertising pages and your good memories

Our best pick of the winter's surplus of one of the
greatest popular-priced clothing houses in America.
These coats at $9 and $10.50 are the smart fancy effects
in cheviots and cassimeres very fashionable and popular
right now. They possess the highest kind of appeal to all
young men.
Mostly in the favorite wide-skirted effect and in a
dozen style variations. Some have shawl collars, some have
laid backs, some have silk-lined shoulders, all have satin
ined sleeves, some have belted backs, all are single'
breasted there's such a choice as you would never expect
at prices so low.
(We have never known Kirschbaum clothing to sell at
these low prices before.)
