Avoid "Taking Cold"
Protect the Lungs.
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.
Authorities Believe They Have in
Custody One Who Is Guilty
of a Number of
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
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.

Child Touches Switchboard at Edison
Substation and Father Re.
turns to Find Lifeless
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.
So certain was the father that the child
was free from danger, he left the build
ing to do some work on the outside.
While absent there was a sharp, loud
noise Inside the building and rushing back
the father found hla son lying lifeless on
the floor near the large switchboard.
Elmer Chase, the father, operator at the
station, lifted the lifeless form of his
child and dashed upstairs to the apart
ments of himself and wife. Physicians
were hurriedly called but found the little
fellow had been Instantly killed by tho
torrlble shock.
While Chase had been absent from the
station the baby crawled through the
Iron fence, toddled^ over to the switch
board and, attracted by the bright brass
bands and polished knobs, reached forth
his hands to examine them. 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.
Police Consider Methods of Punishing
Autolsts Who Make Practice
of Breaking City Speed
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.
Proceedings to abandon all steps for
the opening of Ninth street between
Rosalind avenue and the easterly boun
dary line of Los Angeles have been taken
by the city attorney.
Ordinance abandoning proceedings for
the widening of Sixteenth Btreet between
Main and Figueroa has been prepared.
In obedience to the request of the
police department the law regulating
gambling has been amended to Include
cubes and dice in a form so that the
courts will sustain prosecutions under
that head.
Mayor Harper and City Clerk Lelandf
are getting many inquiries from Intend
ing settlers in Southern California.
City Auditor W. C. Mushefs force is
tabulating the Inventories called for from
each city department In order to learn
how much real and personal property the
municipality owns.

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
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.

in the wagon, but was uninjured. The
man was taken to a physician's office
on North Belmont avenue, where a cut
on the back of his head was stitched.
The accident took place at Sunset bou

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
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
She takes all this "work" In the line of
fun, so much so that she is often found
playfully "teaching" her company.
