to waive the presence of Frank in the

Y\ ho was better prepared to pro

trained and expert counscl or the de
fendant himself? True, lie had the
right to conduct the trial In person, if
he so desired, but the defendant had
committed his case to tho able and ex-1
pcrlonced counsel, who, in the exercise I
of their relation as attorney for tho
client, waived his right to be present,
and, having mado the waiver, and de
fendant by IiIh conduct having ac
? fjuiesced in It, ho should be bound by
"It would be trifling with the court

Superior and Supreme Courts, and
after a denial by both courts of the
motion to set anido tho verdict, in

Tho State Supreme Court will have !
. to certify a writ of error in order to
- allow the case to be taken to tho Ked - I

the court has the right to refuse. No

^somewhat similar In construction to

' tliu Bronx County Courthouse last
Wednesday night, was found to-day In I
the Tombs courtroom Just under tlio
; district attorney's offices, occuplcd by
Govcrnor-Klect Whitman. The room j
: was crowded. The bomb contained
gunpowder, slugs and bullets. Its fuse
j was partly burned.
Ocorgc L. O'Connor, a policeman,J
i saw somo smoke from the burning
I Cuse of tlio bomb, ran to the spot, j
picked up the missile, tore off the fuse
| and carried the bomb from the court
room. Four men were sitting on the!
bench In the rear of the <courtroom |
where the bomb was found.
i TJie bomb contained explosive!
enough, it was estimated, to have
wrecked the building.
As O'Connor stripped tho sputtering
j fuse from tlio bomb the courtroom wnn
? thrown into an uproar. Approximately!
! nfty persons were in tlye room await
ing the arrival of Magistrate Campbell
t to open court. It Is believed that his
! arrival was tho signal to lire the fuse.

was made of u live-pound oil can, and
that it wuu tilled with Kunoottou. hIurs
and bullots. It was wrapped up In a ,
Jewish dally newspaper tightly hound !
with wrapping cord.
Magistrate Campbell said that he had {
no idea who would seek his lite, un- ;
loss it wore Hie writer or writers or j
threatening letters ho had received dur
ing tho recent trial of Industrial '
Worker* of the World leaders, at which .
ho presided. The polico believed that I

llrcd tho bomb on Wednesday night at 1
the Bronx County Courthouse, and lact
month exploded bombs In .St. Patrlck'ii

Frank Tannonbaum and his Industrial
Workers of tlio World entered St. Al
phonsus Church during tliolr demon
strations last year, un a result of which
Tannenbnum was sent to Jail. The
discovory in the wrcckago of the Bronx

THE prattling baby on-the mother's knee,
the children playing on the ltoor, these
ure the scenes that go to make the happy
American home. But along with it all there
is a basic requirement, that these little hu
mans be healthy. First and foremost of their
little ills are those pertaining to derange
ments of the stomach and bowels.
When trouble comes you call the doctor,
or you try dieting, special foods, stewed fruits,
etc. But have you over tried Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin? It is a mild laxative-tonic
that has been on the market for two genera
tions, having proven Itself the one dependable
remedy, Bnd thousands of mothers now give
it to their children. "Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin is 'gentle in action, und especially in
tended for babies, women and old folk, who
should not use strong catbarttcs or purgatives
such as pills, powders, salts and mineral
waters.
Mrs. C.L.Hanson, of Holmes, Cal., has used
it herself t?nd gives it to her children, and she
says she will never be without it as long as
a bottle is obtainable. Mr. T. B. Pratt, of
Marianna, Ark., uses it himself and has the
whole family uuing it, and he also says he
would not like to be without it. It is the
family remedy in thousands of homes because
it is a safe and sane remedy for constipation,
dyspepsia, biliousness, belching, gas on the
stomach, headaches, bloating, etc. Old users

Lime-Loss and Tuberculosis
FROM tlio Journal of the American Medical Associa
tion (January 17, 1914) we quote the following:
"It lias been many times stated that in tuber
culosis or in the pretuberculosls stage an increased
amount of calcium (lime) is lost both in the urine and
feceM. In fact, a demineralization has been thought to be
a forerunner of the development of tuberculosis. * * *
"Forced feeding of tuberculous patients and the
enormous amount of eggs and milk once given such
patients are not now considered advisable by a large
number of pliysiciaus who are specializing in the treat
ment of pulmonary tuberculosis."
?
It tuberculosis is duo to a loss of lime from the system, the success
of Kckman's Alterative" In the troatmont of this disease may he
<luo, In part, to tho fact that It contains a llmo salt no combined
with other valuable ingredients a a to be easily assimilated, and
thus capablo of replacing some of the lose.
/
Of courso. In all physical affections proper diet plays an impor
tant part, and always we havo "forged users of lScktnau'H Alteratlvo
to attend strictly to matters of food and rest. Tho testimony of
many users, however, leads us to hellevo that the specialists who
phico less reliance on feeding are Justified in their position.
Tn Addition to resU and right food, sumo effective remedial agent
? seems to be needed, and in numerous cases of apparent recovery
from tuberculosis and kindred throat and bronchial affections, Kck
mun's Alterative has supplied this need.
It does not contain opiates, narcotics or habit-forming drugs, so It
is Bafe to try. Your druggist has it or will order It, or you can
get it from us dircct.
