Matthew Taafe Attempts to Board Car
and is Hurled to Hia Death
Before the Eyes of His
While attempting to mount a moving
northbound Pasadena Short Line car
at Third and Main street! at 8:30 last
night Mathew Taaffe, 34 years of age,
proprietor of the barber shop at 230
South Main street, was thrown to the
pavement and so severely Injured thai
he died at the receiving hospital twen
ty minutes later. He was struck by
the front steps (if the car and inter
nally injured.
According to witnesses to the affair,
Taaffe stood waiting for a car. One
Pasadena car is said to have passed
him, but did not stop, although the
man signaled the motorman to do SO.
A little later car No. 267 approached
and Taaffe also waved at the motorman
on that car. The latter Is said to have
paid no attention to him and the car
came on at a rapid rate. Taaffe evi
dently made up his mind to jump It, as
he suddenly sprang forward. The car
was going so fast, however, that he
was hurled through the air and his
grip loosened on the handrail, allowing
him to be thrown to the grodnd with
great force.
Pedestrians ran to the scene at once
and picked him up. He was uncon
scious and remained so until he died.
His sister, -Miss Alice Taaffe, who lives
with the family of the young man, was
standing In the clrug store on the cor
ner at the time of the accident. She
at once rushed forward and accom
panied her brother to the receiving
hospital in the patiol vagon.
From there a telephone message was
sent to Taaffe's wife and, accompanied
by their 7-year-old daughter, the wo
man Boon appeared at the police sta
tion. Her husband was dead by the
time she reached the hospital and the
woman was so overcome by the shock
that It was necessary to carry her from
the place.
Taaffe lived at 1040 Macy street. He
had been a resident of Los Angeles
several years.

Extravagance in Buying Food Costs
Chicago $200,000,000 Annually,

keepers waste nearly J200,000,000 every
year. The exact figures, taken from
commercial reports, and the percent- 1
ages of waste calculated by domestic
science experts, show that {108,140,000
is lost annually by careless buying, un
scientific cooking and other domestic
The school of domestic science sums
up the same under several heads.
Among these the half dozen following
are selected as the most prominent:
l. Buying provisions by order and
telephone Instead of seeing them.
2. Buying prepared foods.
3. Buying fruits and vegetable! out
of season.
i. Taking goods as offered by dealers
instead of Insisting on quantities,
brands and cuts wanted.
5. i,c>ss or. weight, wrappings and at
tractive glasses, cans, etc., in which
food is put up.
6. Lack of expert, knowledge of outs
of meats and of how to cook least ex
pensive things to bring out food values
and good taste.
"The thing which the average house
keeper figures upon as most Important
now is her time," said Miss Lyford of
the school of domestic science. "When
she buys SO as to have this she lias to
figure against not only loss of money,
but loss of nourishment, and then she
has to figure if it isn't better to spend
more money to gel more nourishment."
Two women wen' talking of the little
chicken pies that are bought at tile dell
catessen shop.
"They are only 18 cents, and one piece
is plenty," said the first housekeeper.
"But the crust is greasy and not nour-
Inßhg, and, besides, we have been used
to having a great dish of chicken pie
from which we could fill up our plates
a couple of times at least, and each
time more than the whole of your one
little pie."
Market Buying Urged

of going to market instead of ordering
by telephone or by the order boy, th«
women of the school cannot speak too
strongly. Bald Mrs. Wagley, the secre
"It Is a matter of fact that your roast

butcher may prove perfectly honest,
and you may have him for years and

get your things yourself. The minute
you begin to order, however, the total

"Another advantage of going la that
If your butcher does not happen to
have the cut you want you simply and

for the remedy. There wore certain

Those are found to be safe and yet cer-

These are: Golden Seal root, Queen's
