Germs of Lung and Throat Diseases Fill the Air, Wherever People . Gather. Your System Should Be In Con dition to Realat Them In fall and winter, -when the weather Is changeable, at times damp, and again cold you have to guard against "taking cold," which gererally is the beginning of all lung, throat and nasal troubles. "Getting sick" depends largely on the condition of the body to withstand the at tack of the disease germs. Two men may be exposed to the same disease germs, and one take the disease and the other escape. The explanation is simple. The body of the one was in a healthy condi tion and able to ward off the germs; the other's physical condition was so weak that it was unable to do so. Every one Is exposed to disease. At this season of the year the germa of the dif ferent lung and throat diseases are every where. Whether you catch* these diseases or not depends on your powers of resist- Improper diet and poor digestion have much to do with giving disease a chance to gain a foothold. Many eat heartily and do not take ex ercise enough to digest the food eaten. This lowers the power of resistance. To overcome this you should take Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey regularly, as pre scribed. It makes digestion perfect and enables you to get all the nourishment out of the food you eat. Besides It builds up the nerve tissues, tones up the heart and brings all the vital forces Into action. You should also obtain plenty of fresh air for the lungs. Though your house be kept warm fresh air should be obtained from open windows. Your sleeping room should always have plenty of pure air. Do not starve the lungs and you will starve the cold. A teaspoonful of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey in each glass of water you drink will kill all disease germa and prevent grip and pneumonia. YOUNG MAN IS HELD ON A SERIOUS CHARGE Authorities Believe They Have in Custody One Who Is Guilty of a Number of Thefts In the person of Clarence Jones, a young man of apparently quiet habits and modest salary, the authorities think they have captured a sneak thief of considerable skill and ingenuity. Com plaint was filed In Justice H. A. Pierces court yesterday by Ben Carlsozo, who claims Jones took him home -while he was drunk and put him to bed and then took $47 out of his trousers pocket. Carlsozo says that no one else en tered the room and Jones must have taken the money. He says that when Jones returned next morning to the room he had on, his person a gold watch which he had not possessed the night before. When Jones comes up for trial he will also be given a chance to explain the reports regarding certain Jewelry which he la alleged to have presented to a young lady in Sawtelle. The young woman will be called as a wit ness and the case promises to be sen sational In the extreme. Jones is said to be earning a moder ate salary, which would not allow him to Invest in such valuable gifts to his sweetheart. The alleged theft occurred November 2. Major Donnell, deputy district attorney. Issued the complaint against Jones and will have charge of the prosecution.

BABY KILLED BY ELECTRIC SHOCK BODY BURNED BY THOUSANDS OF VOLTS Child Touches Switchboard at Edison Substation and Father Re. turns to Find Lifeless Form Liittle 2-year-old Philip Chase at a late hour Wednesday played about thq great wheels and dynamos of the Edison Electric sub-station, Inglewood, while tha lather, careless because of the familiar sight of the child playing each day out side the danger zone of electric current, continued his work, glancing only occa sionally to- see his little one did not crawl through the guarding Iron rail surround ing the massive machinery.

As soon as the brass connections were touched a short circuit was formed, and thousands of volts of electricity were thrown Into the little body. Death was Instantaneous. Mrs. Chase, the child's mother, is pros srated with grief over the boy's death. PLAN WAYS TO DEAL WITH SPEED MANIACS Police Consider Methods of Punishing Autolsts Who Make Practice of Breaking City Speed Ordinance A small fine for the first offense, $50 for the second and a straight sentence for the third would, In the opinion oC Chief of Police Edward Kern, do more than anything else to stop the speeding of automobiles, which ha- resulted In so many accidents of lato on the streets o£ Los Angeles. It Is expected the four police Justices will hold a conference sometime within the next few days to discuss the question of fines In cases where automobile driv ers exceed the speed limit. Action of this nature, say the judges, is especially necessary at this time, as the rainy sea son is near at hand and the streets will be in a condition where speeding cars will be exceptionally dangerous. Since the first of the year the average fine paid by men exceeding the speed limit has been $11.

M (j|: %J NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY Ml SUBMIT TO AX BUT NOT WITH GRACE DISCHARGED SANITARY MEN FEEL RESENTFUL All Civil Service Employes, However, Are Subject to Dismissal for Cause the First Six Months Because the health board dropped Paul H. Clark from the rolls as sanitary in spector the latter threatened to retaliate by making charges against some one— who, he has not yet determined. The board has during its present clean up campaign tried to take care of all the ellgibles on the list for sanitary in spector. Under the special ordinance full latl tuds is given that body to drop employes hired for the month on recommendation of any ward doctor in charge of his sec tion of the city. Clark was discharged under this pro vision, but thought as a civil service em ploye that charges should have been pre ferred. Under previous rulings any probation ary employe can be dropped any time the first six months of service provided a reason is stated. Discharged inspectors will doubtless make an effort to have the commission put them back on the eligible list later, even though they have been dropped, as the board's action puts them out of the service altogether. This reinstatement lies within the power of the board. > BIG SHOW TO OPEN AT PRAEGER PARK MONDAY Norris & Rowe's Circus Returns to Los Angeles After Extended Journey Through Canada and Mexico Monday afternoon the greater Norris and Rowe circus will begin a three days' engagement In this city and will give per formances at 2 and 8 p. m. throughout their stay, at Praeger park. It has been more than two years since these California showmen have visited this city, and during their absence they have visited the Republic of Mexico, the Dominion of Canada from Vancouver to Sydney, N. S., and have visited nearly every state in the Union. This season's tour of the circus has ex tended over a greater area than has ever been made by any circus in an equal length of time in the history of the circus business. The show has been greatly enlarged and improved since its last visit to Los An geles and It is now ranked as one of the fly« great circuses of the world. It requires two trains of double length cars to transport the paraphnelia and animals of the show from city to city. There is seating capacity for more than 5000 persons. There are more than 500 persons with the show and it requires 500 horses t ohandle the vast machinery. By a special order from the heads cf the big tented amusement combine no parade will be given by any of the hi? circuses in the future. Consequently Nor ris and Rowc will dispense with that rather attractive feature which Is so dear to the heart of the small boy. It Is claimed that better performances can be given where the parades are elim inated, as the long tours through the city and the dressing for the same tire the performers to such an extent that thay are not fit for their best efforts. Among this season's special features are the Mac Donald family of aeriallsts; the Honey-Mora troupe of aerial per formers, the Pliini family of aerlallsts; the flying Banvards; the Waldorf trio; Rose Dockrell. Edna Maretta, Mile. Fluti, Geo. Holland, Frank Miller, Edward Ho qulm and John Deere, bareback riders; Toto Ducro and his twenty-three assist ant fun makers, and tho exciting hippo drome races.

GIRL GAINS EDUCATION IN STRANGE MANNER Young Woman, Trainer of Animals, Completes Courses of Study While Traveling with Her Pets Probably the most remarkable "school of correspondence" in this country Is that conducted by Mllle Mablo, the young girl whose troupe of trained dogs and monkeys Is one of the features of the Gentry Brothers" shows, which is to exhibit at Kleventh and Flower streets November 18 to 21. During nearly all of the sixteen years of the girl's life she has given her thought, time and attention to educating her dumb companions. She has wrestled with the problem of teaching a dog to walk the rope when she should have been going through the "first reader," and the days usually devoted to solving the mysteries of subtraction and addition have been passed in making a baboon ride a bicycle. Foreseeing the possibilities of circus life, however, and realizing its limitations from an educational standpoint, Mllle Mable's father has brought her into touch with friends of more orthodox opportuni ties. Mllle is a ready writer and never for gets her correspondents. These latter have discovered that no matter what subject Is touched upon Mllle Is quick at re sponse and active In interest, and so methodical has the system Instituted by her father become that her "school of correspondence" has carried her through a complete course of geography, arithme tic, American and English literature and has started her along lines of study less elementary. She takes all this "work" In the line of fun, so much so that she is often found playfully "teaching" her company.
