Internal perfuming of stomachs with bay rum, cologne waters anil hair tonics is a new fashion just starting In Washington, the possible duration of which is being closely watched by druggists and police.

Where transient customers call too often for bay rum and hair tonics tl.c tlerks are Instructed to say that these commodities have been sold out or make other excuses. Nearly every druggist has already had the experi ence of the same men calling severr.l times in a day for bay rum, an un known proceeding until prohibition became effective. To divert suspicion these customers Will buy other perfumed preparations with a large alcoholic content. One favorite with them is eau de quinine, a hair tonic Fold all over the world under a FTench name. It contains nearly 90 per cent of alcohol, some quinine and other decoctions calcu lated to make hair grow or remain resplendent. Its effects on the In terior of the stomach In promoting the growth of whiskers have not been described to the druggists by the "rummies" willing to' take the chance. Anyhow they are buying It despite the fact that razors for shav ing the interior domains are un known. Druggists Pnxzled. Druggist are puzzled over just what to do. and each man Is adopting his own methods of keeping the new styles of booze away from purchasers. The District Commissioners and the Police Department will make investl- gallon of the extent of bay rum and i'alr tonic sales, but Major Pullman, Superintendent of Police, was today Inclined to believe that this style of debauchery will not become perma sent. "One bay rum drink is about enough for even the toughest chap, 1 am informed." said Major Pullman. "Some of them may try it the second time and t,hen quit, if my Information ijt correct. Policemen who have come across a few bay rum drunks say that the consumers become aw fully sick and swear they will never t-y It again. I have not yet had re- ports on hair tonic drunks, and I do j not know what the effect of these . son depatred from the family roof, tak T?Ould be. I hardly think, though. ; lng with her the coal and the furni- ..hat anybody would want to tackle these sort of liquids many times. Of course, there are plenty of fellows -who will try anything once, but the craving for strong drink Is not suffl c.ent to induce some of them to tackle bay rum often." Law Silent on Tonic. Major Pullman paid that If the mw practices threaten to becozne ex tensive, the letral authorities of the District and Federal Governments would be consulted as to what step tOiould be taken. Neither the Shep pard nor Reed laws take anj cog nizance of bay rum. hair tonics, and perfumed waters In the.r composition, although It might be easy to have these construed as intoxicating liquors. The Reed lav prohibits purchase nd bringing into drv territory of intoxicating liquor.- for "beverage purposes." It doe, not define an In toxicating liquor, but presumably re fers to the old Mle stuff, perfumed only by the mellowness of years In wood Major Pullman continue confident that he w-ill be able to speedily break up the bringing of whiskey into the District.

Protests by members of the High School Teachers' Union against the suspension of Miss Alice Wood, Eng lish teacher, for alleged unpatriotic utterances, today marke the latest de velopments In the case of the Western High School Instructor. The protest of the union has been sent to the board of education, ac cording to Miss Alice Deal, president of the High School Teachers' Union. "The patriotism of Miss Wood is not an issue as is shown by the fact that she had been accepted as a Bed Cross worker and would now be in France if the war had not ended." said Miss Deal. "And therefore the manner In which Miss Wood was suspended is of in terst to every other teacher in the public schools inasmuch as every other teacher may be suspended at one time or another and know no reason for the action. "The High School Teachers Union is working In co-operation with the High School Teachers Association and the Grade School Teachers' Union In demanding to. know why Miss Wood was suspended.

Captain James Hartley. In command of the Ninth police precinct, and one of the best known police officials la Washington, today knows what a very difficult problem faces the Washing ton policeman who tries to prevent whiskey being whisked over the Dis trict line from Maryland into the Na tional Capital. HartlcV had an iniri.nm .. day that convinced him the Washing ton policeman Is "up against if anfl .!?? 5e sot out ot thc tangle into Uhlch he was enmeshed a report reached police headquarters that he had been "kidnaped" and the entire police department was thrown Into excitement. Hartley saw an auto roll across the District line Into Washington, occu pied by Policeman Robert L. Garrison, detailed at the White House; Mr. aad Mrs. Harry Davis; of 1400 H stret northeast;. Samuel Shuey and a young woman. Cooldat Search Car. Hartley stopped the auto', stepped on the running board, questioning the occpants and plainly showing that he suspected them of bringing in whla key. He could not search the car. Neither could he arrest the occupants. If he was going to find out whether there was whiskey lnthe auto, he had to be sharp of wit. But the driver of the car knew Just what Hartley could do and could not do under the law. The told him they would drive to a roadhouse, where they had spent the day, and aug gested he ask the proprietor if they had bought booze to bring back Into the District. Before Hartley realized what was up, Davis turned about and, with Hartley In the machine, drove back over the District line. In Maryland. Hartley had no authority as a police official. As the machine sped along Hartley made no attempt to stay the course ot the automobile by the dis play of his revolver. . .vTVeat After; Casoleae. "Reaching, the roadhouse. Hartlev got out of the automobile to question the proprietor. Davis then drove the car down the road "to get gasolene, he said. When he returned. Hartley, disgusted, made no further attempt to search the machine. He returned to Washington in a passing automobile. While Hartley waa being driven to the roadhouse. Capt. Thomas Judge, of the Tenth precinct, telephoned Po lice Headquarters he believed Hartley was being kidnaped. He. then fol lowed the "abductors' in another automobile, but could not find them. Detective Sergts. Edward Kelly, A. B. Scrivener, and Thomas Sweeney encountered Garrison and his friends and took thero to Police Headquar ters. They were questioned, as was Captain Hartley, by Major Pullman, but were released, as no evidence was found that booze was In the car. Oarrlaon Transferred. Today. Garrison is not on duty at the White House. He was trans ferred last night to the Fourth po lice precinct. Captain Hartley denies he was kid naped, declaring he ordered the chauffeur to drive to the Ninth pre cinct. Davis, he said. Insisted that her go back to the roadhouse. There was nothing else for him to do, ha says, as he thought he would have an opportunity to search the machine. Garrison says he was off duty, and made the trip with Davis and the other members of the party "just for an outing." He said he only had a fow glasses of beer, and denied boose was being brought in the automobile to the District. Major Pullman pointed out Hart ley's experience in showing the neces sity, for the enactment of some law which will give policemen the legal right to search automobiles suspected of running the "whiskey blockade' into the District. "II Captain Hartley believed he was being kidnaped he could have used his pistol." said Major Pullman. LOOK YOUNOPREm Sage Tea and Sulphur Darkens So Naturally that No body can tell.
