By leaving an ingeniously made dummy in his cell, a trick of jail. breakers old as the prison itself. John McAllister, a young burglar. <?<-4ped from Sing Sing. It is the first escape from Sing Ktag proper in nearly three years, j although William Moyer when war den lost six Sing Sing prisoners from the prison farm at Wingdale. all but on* of whom were recap tured. The rase nf leaving an efllby ?n ? a cell so th*> occupant's absencc will f no; be noticed and he can get a good start on the guards has been wcik en every live or ten years sine- Sing Sing was built 94 years aeo. Bui :t was never as cleverly done as McAllister accomplished it. Jean Kirsher, another burglar and jail-breaker, known as "Little1 Butterfly." was the last to effect his getaway by leaving a "stuffed prisoner." He departed January 12. 1916. and left his proxy in his cage, with the legs neatly crossed, read- , ing an opened-out newspaper. War- i den George W. Kirchwey thought the dummy so well made and sit uated he had it photographed and exhibited the picture to all prison visitors. McAllister, who was an artist be fore being sent to Sing Sing, mod- j eled a better dummy than did Kir- j fher. Kirsher's had no head, the opened-out newspaper clasped in the dummy's hands concealing the lack or it from guards who hourly peek in trough the lattice in each cell door ^IcAIIister. though, fashioned a head of a composition believed to consist of soap, dough and putty. He cov ered the head with hair. He shaped th* features and combed the hair as near as possible t6 his own image and likeness. The body was made by stuffing a prison uniform with a pil low, rags, straw and waste. That's why the guard on Gallery 5, where McAllister was locked. tiers above tho ground, thought he was asleep on his cot When the pris oners stepped out of their cells In the cell block and stood on the gal lery yesterday to go to breakfast there was one vacant space The guard= concluded that someone hao overslept. So when a keeper opened McAllister's cage and reached over to shake the leg of the drowsy occupant he was startled to discover only th? Image of McAllister. ^ An attraction In the public park at I Ouray.

Merrittl JAZZ ROMANCE ENDS IN DIVORCE Mrs. Clarke Declares Song Writer Liked Ladies Al together Too Much. New ork.?Each stage of the court- I ship and marriage of Mrs. Helen Pat- j ten Clarke, which furnished rrtstp for the divorce mil. has been told in son if I by her husband. Grant Clark?, from whom she is now seeking her free- j dom. The trial was begun before ? Justice Giegerich, of the ^ipreme Court. About the time Mr. Clarke was] wooing his fiancee, who comes from j Kokomo. 111., he found inspiration In I her for one of his popular songs. j "One in a Million like Ygu." A? she I was the theme of Clarke's muse. Mrs. I Clarke was supremely happy for the j first two years of her married life. I They had trifling difference^ then and her husband composed "Sit j Down. You're Rocking the Boat." i Sit down, sit down, sit down, you're | rocking the boat; What's that blond hair doing on your coat? I Don't make a noise, she's gone to bed. Well get an iceberg for your head: Sit down, sit down, sit down, you're rocking the boat. But the troublous time passed and another yfcar slipped by before Mrs. Clarke began to hear disquieting ru mors Her husband burst into song with "I Love the Ladies." ? The refrain of this song tells how "I love to be among the girl?," and thow "When it's 5 o'clock and tea is set. I like to have my tea with some brunette." gradually working up to i the climax of "When Tra In awimmin' I love the women." She had heard of a pretty blond j who seemed attentive to the song writer, and while she was trying to i find out more about her rival Mr. 1 Clarke enlightened the public with "There's a Little Bit of Bad In Every 1 Good Little Girl." Soon after Mrs. Clarke heard the lilting melody -he decided upon a di vorce ami lnduoed her sister. Inez. with several friends to raid an apart ment on West Fortieth street on the night of April 18 last. Her witn eases testified that they were not disappointed In this quest and described the blond woman In great detail. Soorr-sfter Mrs. Clark* had begun her divorce action her husband was again inspired and pro duced "I Hate to Lose You." Justice Oiegerlch. tn reserving de-1 cision. indicated that Mrs. Clarke's! petition for her freedom would be approved: ????????? , Rat For May Become Fashion in Smart Coats London.?Rat fur may figure large ly In linings for coats and trimmings for dresses and suits.

Sonora.?Dry leader? in the United States can learn h few lessons from Mexico In what real bone-dry prohibition ia. Not all Mexico is dry. But the state of Sonora. with 300.000 popula tion. ia literaly bone-dry. It haa been for four years. If the United States wants to put over prohibition without loopholes let her adopt" the drastic meaaure* in force in Sonora. Here they are: Death penalty for moonshiners and importers of intoxicating liquor. Life imprisonment for bootleggers who sell It. One to fourteen years' imprisonment for having one drink in one's posses sion. And the natives of Sonora like this brand of bone-dry prohibition so much | that they recently voted, nearly 11 to t 1. to keep in force permanently these ?' ws, originally issued by Gen. Plu rco Ellaa Callea when he became military governor of Sonora four years ago. Gen. Callea has been governor ever | since?until his recent call to Mexico City to become minister of commerce: and industry in the cabinet of Preal- j dent Carranza. Here is the way Gen. Calle? sums up the benefit derived from a policy of shooting men who manufacture liquor and imposing drastic prison sen- , tences on those who import it. sell it j and have it in their possession: No revolutionary movement in , Sonora in four years. Labor, formerly only SO per cent | employed, now nearly 100 per cent ( employed six days a week. School attendance 70 per cent greater. Production of mines, mills, factor- j ies. farms< fisheries increased 25 to; 5o per cent. j Wages increased from 40 to 50 cents; a day to $3 to *5 a day. Results in Sonora have convinced j me that real bone-dry prohibition Iflj one of the best remedies for Bol- i shevlam." said "General Calles, "butj you have to stamp out the liquor. traffic down to the ?very last drop! or prohibition becomes a Joke. It's i no Joke in Sonora." . CANADIAN TROOPS RETURNING FAST Otawa?Canadian oversea forcea will all be home by the end of July, ac cording to the present rapid rate of demobilization.

"Billy" Ljivere. as he is affection ately known to the twenty-odd thou sand "8ig Alphs" in this country, saw twenty months' "Y" service in France, during which he was stationed suc cessively at Neufchateau, Tours, at the front, in England and at Ander nach on the Rhine with the army of occupation. "My flrst dsy on duty at Neufcha teau," he said, "a young lieutenant came in whom I spotted as a college man. Upon inquiry. I found that he j wag an S. A. E. from a Middle West- ' ern chapter.
