D., Commissioner How to Procure a Record of Birth or Establish a Record Where None Exist*—Free Births are registered in the registra tion office of the district in which the birth occurred. If the child was not born in Chicago, its birth will not be recorded in the Chicago Department of Health, nor can its birth be placed on record there. Birth records were kept by the De partment of Health during the years 1898 to 1908. inclusive, and since Jan uary 1, 1916, but not in the period from 1909 to 1915, inclusive. To obtain a record of birth of a child born in Chicago during the time of recording mentioned above, application should be made at Room 707, City Hall. If the birth occurred prior to 1898, or in the period from 1909 to 1915, in clusive, application should be made at the office of the county clerk. Room 233, County Building. Records of births occurring prior to 1871 were de stroyed in the Chicago fire. To Establish a Record of Birth Commissioner Bundesen suggests the following: To establish a record of hirth of a child born in Chicago whose birth has not been recorded, proceed as follows: 1. Have the physician or midwife who attended at the time of birth fill out a b*rth certificate (state form V. S. No. 1) and return it to the Department of Health, together with this slip. 2. If the attending physician or midwife has since died, or left the city, and the present address cannot be found, the father or mother of the child may fill out, sign and file the birth cer tificate, when accomapnied by affidavit (state form V. S. No. 19). properly filled out and signed by the father, if living; or, in case of the death or ab sence of the father, then the mother may make the certificate and affidavit, which should be sworn to before a notary public. 3. When records are filed by affi davit, the law requires that a fee of 25 cents shall be paid by the person upon whose application the birth record is recorded. September 10, 1926. DR. ADENA C. E.

BULLETIN No. 74—PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY FROM THE SHOP-LIFTER By Chief of Police Morgan A. Collins Beware of shop-lifters. With the opening of the fall shop ping season, the first cool, crisp days of early iutumn, shoppers Hock intd the stores to lay in early supplies of winter clothing, and the like, and with the crowds come the shop-lifters. Snch is the message to all retail merchants contained in this week's bul letin issued by Chief of Police Morgan A. Collins. Here are a few suggestions on how j to protect your property: Be on the lookout for suspicious characters loitering about your place, particularly women accompanied by small children. Watch the per«on who carries a coat, traveling hrg or suit case. The coat oftentimes is used to conceal stolen articles and many bags and suit cases are equipped with false bottoms. Shop-lifters reap their biggest har vest during the noon lunch period and shortly before closing time. An un guarded counter spells disaster for any tradesman. Under no circumstances leave the salesroom to the mercies of a prospec tive customer. Don’t trust prosperous 0 looking and smooth talking persons with polished manners. Expert shop lifters are invariably well dressed. Do not permit any person caught stealing to go without notifying the police. They may be wanted by other merchants. Remember a shop-lifter in jail is a safe investment for yourself and every other merchant. MISS ELIZABETH CARTER PLEASANTLY VISITED AT THE HOME OF DR. MINOTT Miss Elizabeth C. Carter of New Bedford.
