MONK FAMILY ENTERTAINS
ADDITION TO HOUSEHOLD
Newcomer of Marmozette Species,
One of Few Born in the
United States
There la a new born babe in the
Monk family at Eastlake park. To
Mr. and Mrs. Marmozette Monk, orig
inally of Brazil, a little eight-ounce
child has come. There is greta joy in
the Monk household. American-born
Marmozette children are rare and the
Eastlake park parents have good rea
son to be proud and joyful. Hidden in
its mother's long hair, warm and cozy,
the new one is also proud and Joyful
and glad that it is in California.
Winter has held no terrors for this
family. It is usually the fate of mon
keys when they come to the United
States to spend their days in cold ho
tels In the east or breezy little boxes in
the parks of Chicago or Milwaukee, or
some place else where snow is inches
deep. These little guests at Eastlake
have slept out of doors all winter.
Rosy monkey complexions are theirs
and the usual California smile is on
their monkey faces.
RETURN SEALED VERDICT
IN TRIO CONSPIRACY CASE
Fate of Dolph M. Greene, R. E. Ivett
and Harry G. Conner Known To
day—lvett Arrested Again
After remaining out for four hours
the jury in the case of Dolph M.
Greene, R. E. Ivett and Harry G. Con
ner, charged with criminal conspiracy
to defraud J. H. Umberger out of $300
by selling him a half interest in an
alleged garage in Lebanon street, re
turned a sealed verdict at 4 o'clock
yesterday morning and handed it to
Bailifl Hubbard of Police Judge Rose's i
court. The jurymen then were al
lowed to go to their homes and will j
appear in court at 10 o'clock this
morning when the verdict will be read.
Yesterday afternoon R. E. Ivett, one
of the defendants in the Greene-Con
ner-Ivett case, was-arrested by Patrol
man Varey and booked at the central
police station on a misdemeanor
charge of failing to have a license to
conduct the garage which was used
to bunco Umberger out of $300. The
accused furnished bail and was re
leased.
EASTERN LUMBERMEN GET
IN LINE WITH COAST MEN
Will Follow Example of Western Deal,
ers in Usuing Odd Lengths of
Lumber
SEATTLE, Feb. 22.—Eastern retail
lumbermen will use odd lengths of lum
ber and are willing to do their part to
help along the movement which they,
like the Pacific coast manufacturers,
believe is in the interest of conserva
tion, according to Victor H. Beckman,
secretary of the Pacific Coast Lumber
Manufacturers' association, who re
turned yesterday from a six weeks' trip
through the middle west, where he
went' to represent the coast manufac
turers and urge the adoption of odd
lengths in the consuming markets.
Mr. Beckman addressed 4000 retailers
scattered from Minneapolis to New Or
leans, and from Lincoln, Neb., to Cin
cinnati, O. He declares the resolutions
rejecting odd lengths, passed at several
of the conventions he attended, do not
in any measure voice the real feelings
of the average retailer. He says they
were, in most cases, put through by in
terests not particularly friendly .toward
the Pacific coast lumbermen.
CANCER
There is a time in cases of cancer when the
disease can be removed without the knife.
There will also come a time in all untreated
cases when the disease has advanced beyond
hope of cure by any known treatment.
DEATH, slow, painful and certain, will
surely follow Delay In having cancer
treated Is virtually suicide. ACT AT ONCE.
Statistics show that one man In eleven,
and one woman In eight over 35 will die of
cancer. Thousands have cancer and delay
until too late.
FEE —Any akin cancer next ten days.
Bring ad. No knife. . . • , .
