HONOR
In ancicnt days unmeasured
honor was paid to vegetables.
Monarchs exchanged them as
gifts; wise men and warriors
supped on them after study
and battle;
Chiefs of the noblest descent
prepared them with their
own hands for their own
tables;
And, just as at CHILDS
to-day, the public proclaimed
them Nature's greatest gift
to man.

CUT THROUGH BRICK W ALL
Rooms Strewed With Cijjnr
Butts Show Robbers Took
Their Time.
Many thousand dollars worth of sil
verware, Jewelry, medals, trophies,
clothes and other things of value were
stolen within the last few weeks from
the homes of Supreme Court Justice
Samuel Greenbaum and former Bor
ough President Marcus M. Marks,
which adjoin at 2 and 4 East Ninety
fourth street, the robbery being per
petrated by probably two or three men
who took several days and did a thor
ough job, overlooking nothing.
The burglary was made public yes
terday when the police, after severaJ
days' inquiry, got in touch with Justice
Greenbaum and Mr. Marks and were
able to make a thorough investigation.
??My house." said Mr. Marks, "looked
like a mining camp after a storm, and
Judge Greenbaum's house looked
worse. The burglars threw furniture
around and dumped everything onto
the floor."
Cut Hole In BrlcU Wall.
The burglars got Into the Greenbaum
house by means of skeleton keys. Prob
ably last week. Working on the third
floor, then they cut a large hole through
the brick wall, 12 Inches thick, and en
tered the Marks house.
Justice Greenbaum was with his fam
ily at Larchmont for the summer and
the house was closed. Tho Marks fam
ily was in Europe and Mr. Marks was
on his way back. He returned to this
city last Friday, but didn't go to his
home because the house was closed, the
family being away.
In the Greenbaum house books had
been pulled from the shelves and
thrown onto the floor as the robbers
searched for hidden valuables. In the
Marks house a small safe on an.upper
floor had been blown open and emptied,
though it contained only papers of 1m-j
portance to the owner. and
ClKar and cigarette stumps ana
burned matches littered every room. ln
dtcatlng that the burglars hart ?arked
at their leisure, smoking at their task
There wore Indications, too. that they
indulged in an occasional drink.
The hole cut through the brick wall
between tho two houses was large and
I Mr Marks believes it must have taken
hours to make. Mr. Marks believes
they may have been in the place fout
day?, going in and out from time to
j time.
Man Seen tearlna Honse.
i X.ast Friday a maid in the home ot
i Mrs Willard Straight at the corner
j of Fifth avenue and Ninety-fourth
street saw a man leaving the Marks
bouse, carrying two large suit cases.
! The maid knew the house was empty
and reported the matter to a private
watchman. The watchman made a hasty
examination and then notified the police
of the East 104th street station. Until
I yesterday the police were trying to
communicate with the members of the
two families.
Justice Greenbaum lamented particu
larly the loss of a large silver loving
cup, three feet high, which had been
given him by his children on the occa
sion of his silver wedding. War trophies
belonging to the Justice's son Edward
were also taken. The son served In
the Judge Advocate's office In the war
and had gathered together In France a
number of relics of the battlefield which
he had contemplated taking to his own
home. He was married recently and
had given up his room in his father's
house.
Mr. Marks also lost Innumerable ob
jects of sentimental value, Including
the loving cup given him for his work
In behalf of daylight saving and medals
and other loving cups given in testi
mony of his public activities. Some of
I the things taken were of comparatively
I little Intrinsic value, but the burglars
I overlooked nothing.
The police put the loss down ns
"considerable." Neither owner would
i make any estimate yesterday. A oe
scrlptlon of the man seen leaving the
' Marks house Is In the possession of
! the police and a general alarm has been
| sent to pawnshops and dealers to look
out for such of the valuables as are
i known to have been stolen.

BOY BOOTBLACK USES GIRL
IN KNICKERS TO GET TRADE
Louis, 11, Does Record Business in City Hall Park, as
Sister Katherine, 13, of the Flashing Eyes and
Bobbed Hair, Lines Up the Customers.
Bootblacklng circles In City Hall parV |
received a severe jar yesterday after
noon when It was discovered that Louis
Corlnl, aged 11, who halls from 27 (
Cherry street, had employed the services
of a young woman to aid him In pur- ,
suit of his trade. The young woman ,
was Katherine Corlnl, aged 13, sister of
Louis, with flashing eyes and bobbed I
hair. She pitched in to help in a sys- ,
tematic manner, with the result that |
Louis had the busiest rush hour trade 1
he can remember. His brush flew and
the nickels and dimes fell in his hands.
All Katherine did was to march the
customers up. Katherine is not bashful.
She was dressed In knickers and a
sailor blouse and had no hat. She had
a keen eye for picking out of the crowds
to and from the Brooklyn Bridge those
gentlemen who had gathered dust on
their shoes and those whose shoes were
bright and shiny, but would pause at the
behest of a maiden as fair as she.
Katfierlne's "Hey, Mister!" was not
tfie ear splitter of the *>oy professionals
at the bootblacking craft. It struck per
suasively on the ear, and when Kath
erine added: "Gee, you can't go home )
to your wife with shoes like that," the !
gentleman addressed let his eyes waver
to his shoes and decided, by Jove, that
the girl was right.
ARSENIC SPRINKLED
JUST BEFORE BAKING
Continued from First Page.
dough had been shortened and rolled
out into thin pie crust. Some had been
sweetened to make fancy cakes, rolls
and Danish pastry. All that remained
was to put the stuff in the ovens.
The loglcaT conclusion Is, therefore,
that while the three men were confer
ring some one slipped In unobserved and
dusted the prepared dough with arsenic.
Mnnplrlon on Thirty-five Persona.
What District Attorney Banton hopes
to learn Is who was in the Shelburn res
taurant after midnight Sunday. He said
that he had made no progress, that he
had nothing that would warrant him
suspecting any Individual and that he
had not so much as a germ of a motive
theory.
"That dough that remained in the Ice
box." said Mr. Banton, "was accessible
to at least thirty-five person*. I have
seldom come on so complete a mystery.
The Ingenuity of this criminal commands
attention."
Five waitresses from the Shelburn were
questioned by Mr. Banton. Likewise
Sol Bosensteln and Peter Hansen, bakers
and friends of Abramson. Mr. Banton
said the statements of Rosensteln and
Hansen brought him no nearer to a solu
tion of the mystery.
Ole Salthe reported that In only four
of forty-two specimens was arsenic pres
ent. Salthe found it impossible to esti
mate how much/ was injected Into the
poisorred stuff, but he said :
"I should say^iot less than a handful.
Three grains will kill. A handful of
arsenic?well, use your own Imagina
tion."
Danish Pastry Saturated.
Salthe found the Danish pastry reek
ing with tha poison. There was so much
ar.*cnlc In the Danish pastry that the
precipitate "clogged the test tube." This
supports Salthe'a theory that the arsenic
wa.i sifted over the dough after it had
been apportioned Into pie crust, rolls,
cake* and Danish pastry.
The tests showed arsenic In the pie
crust. Arsenic was discovered In slight
ly lesser degree In the fancy cake?.
Still less was found In the small cup i
cakes. But In the Danish paMry the j
amount was so great ar, to make It cer- |
tain that each variety of poisoned food
was polluted separately. Little of the
Danish pastry was sold on Monday, but
those who did eat It received so much
poison that the nausea that followed .
saved their lives. In this case the Dan
ish pastry was the safest of the foods. I
Salthe is now analyzing specimens of |
Ice cream, fruit, prune Juice, corn meal,
matzoths. rolls and flour. A
There were no additional deaths dur
ing the day, but two or three new cases
of illness were reported. The large sign I
ottering the reward was removed from
In front of the Shelburn restaurant.
Harry Oshrln explaining that it at
tracted too larije a crowd He added :
"We have been Inundated with letters,
most of them offering solutions. Some
are from obvious cranks and some are
Joking. For Instance. a lady writes us
that the Shelburn must have used wild
huckleberries In their pies."
Th?re Is the Impression that the poi
soning at the Shelburn will he as much
of a mystery as that In which Jean
Prones was the central figure. Crones
was assistant chef In the t'nlverwlty Club,
Chicago, where 300 persons were at a
dinner In honor of Archbishop Munde
leln. The soup was poisoned and more
| than 100 of the diners became 111. one of !
them dying. Suspicion settled on Jean
Crones, but he never was found. -
DEALER IN READY CUT
HOLIES ADMITS GUILT
Oxley* Sentence Deferred to
Let Him Give Evidence.
Alfred G. Oxley, president of the Ster
ling Homes Corporation. 1 West Thirty- j
fourth !?treet. pleaded gujlty to grand
larceny yesterday before Judge Mancuso '
In General Sessions. He was remanded
to the Tombs until September IS for
sentence.
The long deferment of sentence was
arranged for on the belief of James J.
Wilson. Assistant District Attorney, that j
he could obtain Information from the i
defendant that would aid In'the appre
hension and possible conviction of others. I
Oxley wax Indicted last month after >
more than forty persons had complained
to the District Attorney that he had
fleeced them out of $3(1.000 In a scheme i
for the sale of "ready cut" or sectional .
homes. They paid In their money, but j
the houses were never delivered.
JURY FAILS TO INDICT
FOR JANE STREET FIRE
\ The July Grand Jury failed to return |
Indictments yesterdsy In connection with
the fire on July 1* In the Mnnufacturers
Transit Warehouse Company at Jane i
and West Twelfth streets. In which two
firemen lost their lives,
Morgan A. Jones, Assistant District I
Attorney In the Homicide Bureau, had j
asked for Indictments charging man- '
slaughter In the second degree, but the |
charges were dismissed, which probably
will close the case.
Lieut. John J. Rchoppmeyer and James
H. Ma lone were killed by the explosion
of thirty-eight cases of magnesium pow
der. The allegation of homicide arose
from the fact that there was a ques
tion whether or not the firm had a per
mit to store explosives. An extensive
Investigation was m?de hy the District
Attorney.
All during the rush hour the partner
ship of LouIb & Katherlne worked like
a charm. Most of the time Katherine
had shine seekers coralled near the park
railing, waiting while Louis'* brush
flashed over the leather. When the rush
waii over Louis's arms ached. Katherine
took charge of the money. "I guess
we'll quit now," she told Louis. "We've
got a good wad."
Louis had to face out the other boot
blacks of the park who did not take to
the Intrusion of the female element In
their business. "You can't work two
handed that way," said one of the rival
shiners.
"Aw. g-'wan," said Louis. "She's my
sister, and If she wants to work with
me she can."
The pair departed successfully. Louis
explained to an inquirer that business
had been bad since they began tearing
up the park around the new statue, and
he Just had to think up a scheme for
capturing trade.
"I'm a. wise guy," he said, with a
grin. "Why do they have swell blond
cashiers In restaurants and at th??
movies? I !inow. The boys fall easier.
My sis ain't a blonde, but I leave it to
you If she ain't there." The bobbed
haired ono gave Louis a push. "We'll
knock 'em dead to-morrow," she said.
And they went home,
DR TAKAMINE'S WILL
AT ODDS WITH FAITH
Scientist Wanted to Be Cre
mated, but Remains Will Stay
in Consecrated Ground.
Two requests made in the will of Dr.
Joklchl Takamine, the Japanese scientist
who made bloodless surgery possible,
will not be carried out.
One of these was that his body be
turned over to his good friend Dr.' Mal
ccim Harris of Chicago for anatomical
examination and scientific research, and
the other that In event the first request
were not carried out for any reason, his
body be cremated and one-half of his
ashes be burlul In this country ana the
other half In Japan.
Dr. Harris has declined to accept the j
body of his friend for anatomical or
other examination. Dr. Takamine di.d
a Roman Catholic, and as such his body
could not rightfully be cremated. The
will making the latter request was dated
before the eminent Japanese turned
toward the Roman church.
It may be some time before the full
value of the estate left by Dr. Takamine
is known. Roughly, it is placed at more
than $1,000,000, but persons in a position
to know say that It will greatly exceed
this because of the huge royalties the
scientist received annually from his dis
coveries In the laboratory. Adrenalin,
his greatest achievement, probably will
be tho source of wealth for yearB to
come,
Actual carrying out of the will may
be delayed because of Innumerable In
terjections both in English and Japanese
script. Surrogate Frederic Begg of
Passaic county, New Jersey, told Judge
Joseph A. Delaney of the Passaic |
County Orphans Court he would not !
permit distribution until these are clari
fied.
Mrs. Takamine Is to be sole execu
trix in this country and will act with
Matasakia Shlohara of Tokio. In Japan.
The will was mado while Dr. and Mrs.
Takamine were In Biltmore, N. C. It
w-as on Dr. Takamine's return to the
North that Mgr. Thomas J. Kernan of
St. Nicholas's Church, Passaic, per
suaded the scientist to turn Catholic.
Dr. Takamine was a resident of New
Jersey. At Clinton. N. J., also was his
principal enterprise, the Takamine
laboratories, Inc., of whose utock Mrs.
Takamine will receive one-third, and the
scientist's two sons and their wives one- '
sixth eacii. The estate at Merrlcwold '
Park, Sho-Foo-Den. which consisted of
twenty acres and an elaborate home of
Japanese design, is to gotf o the wife. An
other tract of 110 acre* goes to Mr. and
Mrs. Eben Takamine, and still another ot
rwent.v acres, on Florence Lake, Merrle- '
wold Park, to Mr. and Mrs. Jlkichi Tak- '
amine, Jr.
The house at 93 The Boulevard, Pas- '
sale, will go to the widow besides one- '
third the residuary estate. She also Is
entitled to sell the home at 334 River
side Drive, for a price she considers fair,
and use the proceeds to liquidate Indebt
edness of the Takamine Industries Com
pany of Japan to the Sunil Tomo Bank
of Tokio.
Two Institutions received bequests
They were the Institute oftoklo, 50.000 1
yen for physical and chemical research i
work, and the Imperial Academy of
Science, Tokio, 25,000 yen as a trust !
fund for prizes to the students. Dr. 1
Takamine's Insurance of $100,000 Is to
go to the widow. His business affilia
tions Included the Takamine Ferment
Company, Hooper Klectro Chemical
Company, the headquarters of which Is
at 25 pine street, this city, and Interest
in I'arke, Davis & Co. the drug concern,
which prepared all of his adrenalin. The
lattermost him 25 cents a grain to pre
pare and he sold more than *0,000 trains
annually to Japan alone at 80 cents a
grain. Dr. Takamine was a member
of numerous clubs and was a founder j
of the Nippon Club of New York, of i
which he possessed a large amount of 1
stooksNand bonds, all of which ho left
to the club.
The bequests to servants and friends

The ploomy prospect of collecting
the foreign war debt. evidenced by
the suggestions nmde by Great Britain
th.it all nations cancel their war obli
gations, caused great anxiety to-day in
the rank* of the bonus battalion of the
Senate.
Practically tyvery Senator on the
Democratic side, who favors the $5,000 -
000.000 recommended, Is on record in
?nvor of paying the bonus from the
Interest on the money owed to the
tilted states by European govern
ments. They have argued that if such
a method of payment Is provided In
the bill, taxpayers would not feel the
burden.
That argument was use,] a|so hy many
members of the House when the measure
was before that body. When the ques
tion came before the Senate in May
Senators Simmons (N. C.). Jones (N.I
M.), Harrison (Miss.) nnd other Demo-1
eratlc Senators condemned the different
taxation proposals to raise the funds,
paying the people already ,vere saddled
ih- 1 I?*?3 th,at were almost breaking
r bnckf. rhen they urgfH! the us*
Of the foreign loans for the pu^ose
? K L* 1e Chairman McCumber of
the Hnance Committee thought favor
ably of that plan, but reluctantly he
agreed with the Treasury Department
that any money collected from Kurope
?an needed to redeem Victory notes an,/
liberty bonds soon to mature.
Hoprn mill Llnweted.
Time and again in the early,discus
sions of the bonus bill It was asserted
. .I noor. ?' the Senate that the
interist on the foreign debt, especially
that owed by Great Britain, would be
fhu4, f. ty JU,y 1 of lhis >'ear- When
that time passed and no funds had been
received advocates of the plan still
entertained lingering hopes that the
money would be forthcoming |n time to
meet the obligations of the bonus bill,
since its passage had been delayed.
But even the most optimistic of the
bonus Senators, and those moat deter
mined to jam throygti the bill, have
abandoned all hope of having the meas
ure financed In whole, or in part, by the
foreign war debt. Not that they intend
o submit gracefully to the suggestions
thrown out by Great Britain for can
cellation of that obligation. There fa no
denying the fact that the sentiment Is
almost unanlrm>us In the Senate in favor
of demanding full payments of the loans
In keeping with the terms agreed upon
when they were made to the allied
nations. Yet the Senators realize that
the settlement In all probability Is a
matter of the future, and the 'luestion
may become so involved that it would
be absurd to base the bonus bill ui>on
such a flimsy foundation.
Democratic Senators In favor of a
bonus are not bothering much about the
financial problems involved.
"The Senators on the other side are
shaping the economic policies of the
Ooveriunent at this time," declared Sen
ator Harrison r.Miss.) when asked what
plans the Democrats now have to
finance the bonus.
Demncrnts Are (hackling.
senator Simmons <N. C.) said he ha*
been so busy with the tariff bill that he
has not hail time to give any seriou* ?
thought recently to the bonus, and thus
he dismissed the subject.
in truth the Democratic Senators?
those for and against the bonus?are
secretly chuckling over the distress In j
which the Republican leaders find 'n<?m
selves over the bonus. They realize 'ho
odlum for such an cconnmic blunder
will be on the majority par.ty.
Senators opposed to the bonus pointed
out that Inasmuch as the Treasury De
partment's plans to redeem Victory
notes anil Liberty bonds soon to mature
by using the funds from the for-ign wnr
debt likely will fail to materialize. It
would be a legislative crime for Con
gress to saddle the Treasury Depart
ment with the bonus measure.
The fact Is that recent developments
concerning the loans made to Kuropeaii
goverr ments have been a severe blow to
the bonus raiders. They are now like a
drowning man grasping at stra.v\ hop
ing thus to be saved.
Another distressing development to
day for the bonus battalion was the
failure of the Sei.atc to agree upon an
early vote on the tariff bill. Charges
were made In the corridor* and the
cloakrooms that the real reason back
of the move to block a vote on the
riff bill was the desire of the Repub
lican leaders to sidestep the bonus Issue.
Politicians of the American I.eglon
are active in prodding their Senatorial
friends, urging them to get rid of thf
tariff bill so they can take up the bonus.
All efforts nf the bonus advocate*.
within and without the Senate, to get
President Harding to approve the pend
ing bill have failed, according to late
reports reaching the Capitol. While
there are plenty of votes In the Senate
to pass the MeCumber bill the opposl- .
tlon to the move to pass the bill over '
the President's veto is growing steadily
Kven In the House, where the flrst
effort to override the veto would b?
made, there is a pronounced sentiment,
according to Seriate leaders, to such a
course, despite the overwhelming vote
In favor of the bonus when the bill V as
considered March 11.

Fire Insurance Rates
. to Come Down Sept. 1
INSURANCE rates on all new
and renewed Are insurance
policies on Manhattan Island
will be decreased by 1 per cent. be
ginning September 1, according to
Fire Commissioner Drennan. He j
had received a letter to this effect,
he said, from C. F. Shallcross,
chairman of a special committee of
the New York Hoard of Fire Un
derwriters, which was appointed
eighteen months ago to investigate
the antiquated fire alarm system. !
The decrease is due to the in
stallation of the new flr? alarm
system, which has 1,800 boxes in
stead of 900. It is estimated that
the saving in premiums to the in
sured will amount to $250,000 an
nually or about 11 per cent, on the
$1,750,000 spent by the city* for the
new system.
