Shoplifting Business Is Declining in New York
N EW YORK.—The shoplifting business, like many other Industries which
formerly flourished hereabouts, but which failed to find favor in the eyes
of the authorities, ,1s in a bad way Indeed, and it begins to look as If in the not
distant future the shoplifter will be
about as rare a specimen In and about
this city as the great auk and the man
ufacturers of wooden nutmegs.
There a^e two most excellent rea
sons for this pleasing change. One
of these Is that the system of policing
the larger stores of the city has been
reduced almost to a science, and the
other is that laws which went into ef
fect a few months ago made it pos
sible for the courts to inflict very
severe sentences. The detective de
partment of the average large store today Is the height of efficiency, is di
rected by persons of skill and experience, and works so quietly and in such an
unobtrusive manner that few customers, though they may be aware that the
store police system exists, ever suspect, among the many persons they meet,
the ones who are constantly on the watch to prevent thefts.
A detective who has had years of experience in detecting crime in the
larger stores of this city had this to say on the shoplifting evil:
"The old-time professional shoplifters, who used to steal thousands of
dollars' worth of goods in the course of a year, are disappearing rapidly, and
soon we shall have only the amateur pilferers to contend with. One of the
principal reasons for the present situation Is the recent changes in the law.
In the old days, shoplifters, even though arrested many times for the same
offense, usually escaped with a 30 days' sentence. But It Is different now.
If a person is arrested for this crime, and It is the prisoner's first offense, he
or she may be Released under a suspended sentence or fined from $23 to $1,000.
If a person Is arrested for shoplifting and has been before the courts before
and found guflty of a crime, under the new law he or she must be sent to the
penitentiary on an indeterminate sentence, which may run three years."
School of Opportunity an Innovation in Denver
* rr s -
D ENVER, COLO.—"If you don't see what you want, ask for it," is the prin
ciple on which the new Denver School of Opportunity is founded. From
the use being made of It, Denverites seem to have mèt in it a real home of
opportunity. It has an elastic sched
ule of hours which will conform to the
time that the ^eeker after knowledge
and efficiency can devote to the oppor
tunity it affords, whether that be day
or night The teachers declare It is
re-educational In the best sense of the
word and if young or old have missed
the master stroke of life's pursuit It
will give either a new trade or ambi
tion and with that new hope.
Even if a person has a new system
of education to test out, the oppor
tunity school gives the chance to place that invention before the world. Be
tween 500 and 000 day students of both sexes and all ages, rich and poor, are
working In the classes between nine and five.. The student roll, day and night,
now numbers more than 1,500. ' < -
The Inventor of a new system of shorthand is teaching a class of 25 the
merits of his economical chlrography. It Is an opportunity given to a Denver
Invention. Side by side the classes of the old system, 250 strong, and of the
new are at wojrk.

Women of Gotham Now Hang Their Hats on Dummies
N EW YORK.—If you are a woman you don't keep your hats in a flower
decorated box under the bed any more, nor on the hatrack in the hall, nor
hang on the bust of Schiller In the parlor. If you're a pampered pet of for
tune, with ten hats or so to a season,
you order ten headrests painted after
your own image, and stand them up
with the hats atop, on a shelf wherever
there is room enough to accommodate
them. Pupae, they call the hatrests,
which are really glorified dummies.
Ahd even If you think the sight of
a row of heads on your closet shelf
Vould remind you unpleasantly of
Bluebeard, you can't escape seeing
them, for they are becoming quite the
smart and necessary bit of window fit
ting In little hat shops where chapeaux are priced from $20 up.
"I don't claim any credit for having Invented them," Miss Frances Simpson
Stevenson, said to be the only girl in America who is making the headpieces,
explained when found at her studio. "They were not unknown to New York.
One or two shops here Import them from France. I got the. Idea from seeing
some myself in a shop In Paris and started to make them several months
after I returned."
The hatrests, four or five of them, stood in front of her on a shdf in the
studio. They are made of papier-mache, are a little less than the size of a
human head and are painted in oil. The features and hair are all painted on
the head forms. They are very posterlike In effect and exceedingly piquant
and Interesting.
The Idea of having them painted, often In the likeness of the owner, came
originally from sailors in the eighteenth and - nineteenth centuries. They
would carve and paint up ship's heads, or round balls, to be hung from the top
of gangways and name them after people. *
"Sometimes, where a number of them are ordered, a character in history
or a famous actress is chosen as a model, as well as one lu the likeness of the
wearer of the hats," Miss Stevens concluded.
Bees Work for Women of Philadelphia's Suburbs
P HILADELPHIA.—Give woisen credit for putting the bees In the suburbs.
Scores of women tn the outlying sections of the city are becoming apiarists
and the bees are earning pin money for them. Many of the woman beekeepers
' are wives of Philadelphia business men
who live In the suburbs. The apiary
takes the place of the .garden as a
money-making diversion. Others are
wives of farmers for whom beekeeping
is becoming more important as a side
Women usually make a success of
keeping bees, experts say, because
they give more diligent attention to
details. You can't turn a swarm of
bees loose on a farm or suburban es
, täte and expect them to return profits
All the suburbanite's wife has to do to become
without care and attention.
an expert beekeeper is to conquer her fear of the bees' "stingers,'
several hives in a comer of the backyard, make sure there are buckwheat or
dorer fields, or «plenty of wild flowers witlfln reach, and watch that the bees
don't catch disease.
Beekeepers in the Philadelphia district will share $100,000 obtained from
the business during 1916. The average hive will produce abort 300 pounds of
honey, which sells at about ten cents a pound wholesale. This means an in
come of from $30 to $40 a hive.
Thus the woman who keeps from ten to thirty hives of bees will have
from $800' to $900 a year for "pin money."

For- days the ship had lain becalmed.
The crew lay about the deck, sunk lu
the depths of despair. Suddenly there
was a shout of triumph from the di
rection of the captain's cabin, and the
ancient mariner rushed on deck, his
face transfigured with Joy.
Tve got It boys! We're saved!"
"See !" he went on, "here's my pipe.
And here In my right hand Is a match,
my very last match, the only match
left aboard the ship. Watch!"
TTembllng with excitement, the crew
watched around him as in breathless
silence he put his pipe to his lips and
struck the match.
With a roar and a rush a mighty
wind sprang up from the west, and as
the match blew out, amid wild cheer
ing, the sails filled out and the great
ship went plunging on her way.—Dan

A Great Discovery
(by j. H. WATSON, If. D.)
Swollen hands, ankles, feet are due to
a dropsical condition, often caused by
disordered kidneys. Naturally when the
kidneys are deranged the blood Is filled
with poisonous waste matter, which set
tles in the feet, ankles and wrists; or
under the eyes in bag-like formations.
As a remedy for those easily recog
nized symptoms of Inflammation caused
by uric acid—as scalding urine, back
ache and frequent urination, as well as
sed im ent in the urine, or if uric acid in
the blood has. caused rheumatism, lum

and stiffness rapidly disappear.
