tent but also has the power of absorbing
coloring matters 1t Is a very rapid ab
sorbent or gases of every kind and Is
much used In the dissecting rooms and
wards or hospitals for the removal ot of
fensive odors
In rooms which have been recently or
freshly painted a pan or other receptacle
of charcoal allowed to remain therein
over night will completely absorb and
remove all the disagreeable paintodor
Physicians frequently employ charcoal
for destroying the fetor or wounds for
which purpose It Is applied In the form
ot a powder or poultice to gangrenous
sores ulcers etc It Is also largely used
In toothpowders as by its mechanical
action It removes Incrustations ot the
teeth while by Its chemical action It de
stroys fetor or foulness ot the breath
In Indigestion accompanied by flatu
lence or gas on the stomach and belch
Ing and In the colic of infants or older
persons as well as the socalled lead
colic or palnters colic charcoal Is by
far the best and most powerful remedy
that can be used
Stuarts Charcoal Lozenges should be
used frequently or constantly by painters
or workers In lead and all persons whose
occupations make them lIable to lead
colic They should also be employed by
anyone who suffers from these annoy
Ing symptoms ot Indigestion such as fer
mentation decomposition or food flatu
lence or gas on the stomach colicky
pains resulting from the overdistension
ot the Intestines with gas and the rum
bling noises ot the bowels wIth whIch 50
many dyspeptics suffer and which prove
so annoying and embarrassing when oc
currlng while In company
Stuarts Charcoal Lozenges are com
posed ot pure wlllow charcoal mixed with
honey and are capable ot absorbing one
hundred tImes their 00 volume In gas
and by their rapid antltermentatlve anti
septic deodorizing and absorbent action
prevent the possibility ot colic or inter
nal rumblings of gaseous products They
are absolutely harmless and may be given
freely to Infants suffering from colic and
used just as freely by older persons who
are annoyed by flatulence and gas eruc
tations In proof ot the harmlessness of
Charcoal a French physicIan was in the
habit of taking fifteen ounces every day
of his life and recommended Its abundant
use to others

Horrible Crime Is Committed

Clue to Perpetrator

road a mile north at here was the
scene at a trIple murder and an as
sault on a woman some time last night
The dead are Mr and Mrs William
Bork Germans ot Frontenac and their
son 2 years old
2l
The attack on Mrs Bark is the sup
posed motive of the crime Mr Bork
presumably was Idled while trying
to defend his wife
The child was slaln because the mur
derer wished to silence him or feared
he one had been recognized by the little
oneMr
Mr and Mrs Bork and their child
were last seen alive late last night
when they started to drive home to
Frontenac from the hume 01 Mrs
Borks mother at a point two miles In
the country This morning the Borks
horse and buggy were found standing
in the roadway at a deserted spot
In the bottom ot the buggy was dis
covered the body ot the child with a
bullet wound in Its head
Hastily pursuing their Investigations
the searchers care across the boy ot
Bork lying In the middle ot the road
some distance away Bork had been
shot once In the head and twice In the
body A tri through the dust plainly
lead the searchers to a cornfield a
cornfeld
hundred feet away There they rouna
the bOdy of the woman An assault
had been committed upon her and she

Irs Bork had fought hard Along the
trail to the cornfield were found both
the slippers she had worn rIbbons
from her hair and her cloak There I
had been a desperate struggle In the I
field
feldI Is supposed that Bork was the
first to be killed The Indications were
that he had been shot as he sat in
the buggy and that he fell from his
seat to the road Two bullets evidently
were fired Into his body after he fell
Another bullet then ended the life at
the child lte

COOK DROPS FROM SIGHT
Continued from page 1
ceeded In convincing him that such a
plot existed
Personally I dont know the pres
ent whereabouts or Dr Cook
Cool
The puzzle of Dr Cooks disappear
ance began about 3 oclock this after
noon At noon Charles W Wack his
personal counsel issued a formal
statement explaining that Dr Cook had
sailed this morning on the Cunard
liner Carnla Three hours later he
withdrew the first statement and ex
plained he had been Informed by John
n Bradley that the doctor had not
sailed on the Caronla Coincident
with this reports were circulated that
Dr Cook had sailed on the steamship
Havana for Havana
Not Aboard Either Vessel
Neither so tar af can be learned
tonight was correct
Captain John Knight of the Havana
responded to a wireless message after
his vessel had left port as follows
No one on board resembling Dr
resemblng
Cook Name not on passenger list
lst
J A 1cCubln purser ot the Caronia
also replied to a wireless message as
follows Unable to find Dr Cook on
board the Caronla
From other sources it was Intimated
Dr Cook might be at the Hotel Chal
fonte Atlantic City as a guest ot his
friend C F Tckof The hotel man
agement said neither Mr Wckot nor
Dr Cook was registered there but Mr
Wyckof was found a the hotel subse
quently He said he knew nothing ot
Dr Cooks whereabouts
Still another suggestion was that
Dr Cook might be with Captain George
I Comer a friend at Mount Parnassus
East Haddan Conn but word came
back from East Hadden that Captain
Comer said he had not seen or heard
from Dr Cook
Mr Vack In admitting he knows
where Dr Cook Is deuned to give his
address or to account In any way for
the doctors sudden and mysterious
departure
Said 1tr Wack
In the circumstances he is at per
feet liberty to make what plans he
choose9 In due time he will give an
account ot himself and until then I
hope he gets the rest he thoroughly
deserves The children are thoroughl
and Irs Cook has left thc Gramatan
Inn and come to the house at a friend
In thIs cIty trlenC
John R Bradley Sore
John R Bradley who is thoroughly
exasperated with the whole situation
said sItuaton
saidI
I am heartily sCl ot all the mys
tery Dr Cook is under no contract
to me He can come and go as he
chooses without seeking my advice or
consent but I did say today tu Mr
Wack when I read In the papers that
Dr Cool had sailed I should feel prop
erly sore and that I should think I had
a ri h to feel sore i the doctor had
left for an extended trIp without say
Ing goodbye to me I dont know
where he is any more than you do
l he i In this country its all rIght
But why didnt he say outright where
he was going
I still believe In him My stand to
night Is just what It was the day he
landed He has my allegiance until the
University ot Copenhagen has disproved
his claim
At the Gramatan Inn It was said Dr
Cook departed on Wednesday last Mrs
Cook left this afternoon No one at the
hotel would admit they knew of Dr
Cooks whereabouts although several
telegrams addressed to him were j e
celved at the hotel with the remark
that they would be forwarded

nearly as can be computed the average
visitor here spends t least 5 for accom
It
modations food entertainment and gen
eral shopping purchases which figured
on the basIs ot November figures
amounts to 10000 a month Naturally
the expenditure Is less during the sum
mer though even then the city Is a
Mecca to outortown residents Ayerag
Ing up for the whole year however the
amount of outttown money spent here
annually is not less than hal a billion
dollars and by many experts is estimated
to be much more The hotels are now
crowded far beyond their limit and are
tding more than 2000 visitors daily
white boarding houses are caring for at
least 100000 persons At the Hotel Astor
recently 229 people ordered meals dur
Ing a single day and in various other ho
tels the number was almost as large
With 20000 vIsitors coming to New
York every year I Is now figured that
on an average every man woman and
child In the United States visits this city
once every three year
Human Coat Rack
Of the many strange occupations which
the struggle for a livelihood In this city
has developed one which came to light
this week as a result at the first cold
snap Is perhaps the most noveL The dis
coverer ot the new job Is Monk Thomp
son a well known character along the
Battery sea wall where he spends most
ot his time smoking and sunning himself i
He now styles himself the only walk
Ing human coat rack and in the pur
suit of his new profession Is making a
bit ot money When Monk appeared
on the Battery wall the other day wear
ing a siklined overcoat many were the
expressions ot astonishment among his
acqualntanos Then they demanded an
explanation Monk replied that the
coat was not his but that It belonged to
his dIstrIct leader who was paying him
to wear Ito act as a perambulating
coat rack The fIrst cold weather coming
on top ot warm Indian summer found
many winter overcoats still packed away
In moth balls strongly impregnated with
their scent The ordinary procedure on
taking out such garments Is to hang them
out In the back yard to air But In New
York back yards are rare and sneak
thieves many so that many persons are
obliged to wear their coat before the
odor ot camphor has disappeared This
however the district leader did not wish
to do because of the comment It cre
ated so he hit upon the Idea of hiring
Ionk whose honesty is unquestioned to
wear the coat for a couple ot das He
even told a few friends about I and as
a result Monk ot late has worn the fin
est at overcoats much to the envy at his
friends who watch the human coat rack
striding up and down the sea wail with
the deodorizing breezes blowing away the
odor ot camphor
A Canadian Trust
Trust kings here he enjoyed a quiet
chuckle at late over the report emanating
from Canada that a cement trust Is being
formed across the border The merI
meat Is not due to pleasure over an addi
tion to the ranks but rather to the con
viction that If the cement merger be
cited as an example our neighbors across
the line do not know a trust when they
see one Although the Canadian organ
ization Is a thirtmliondolar affair ac
cording to reports I falls except In size
to qualify with a single characteristic ot
trusts as they have been developed In
this country In ever detail I presents
the antithesis of AmerIcan trust methods
as Is shown by the fact that Its net earn
Ings amount to more than six times the
interest on the bond Issue and to hal a
million dollars moro than the Interest on
all its obligations Furthermore al
though the consumption ot cement in
Canada has doubled In the last four
years the price Is now ten per cent lower
than the average for the last five years
In thee two essential features the Can
adian combination Is about as far re
moved from the Ideas of a trust In thIs
country as can well be Imagined I this
be a trust let Canada make the most of
It Is the sentiment expressed by men
who are busy with the rumored billion
dollar copper combine the telephone and
telegraph merger and other almost equal
ly large deals While from the Wall
street point ot view Canada Is hopelessly
behind the times In being without a trust
she Is not likely to get out ot the old
fashioned cas In this respect I the so
called pie cement merger be taken as a sam
Bet Not Decided
Fate always has In store some partic
ularly hard knock for the man who tries
to get more than his share else why
should John D Rockefeller have Indiges
tion and Andrew Carnegie find It so dif
ficult to die poor One humble but prom
Ising Imitator has received the jolt early
In his career however and It ought to
rene as a warning The story Is this
There Is a famous cafe In Gothams all
night district whose proprietor Inspired
by the prlfchlngs of a certpln distin
guished Individual to an trace sui
cide campaign a year or two ago of
fered a prize ot 0 to every one ot his
employee who should marry Later on
the scheme seemed Incomplete and a
supplementary prIze o 2 each was of
fered for babies So far i has been ex
pensive but the proprietor has stuck to
it heroically animated by the profound
Interest In the welfare of the race and
sustained by the advertising value ot the
frhlme The cafe has a chef who by
joining hands with another emploe
about n year ago succeeded In dragging
down double prize money but this was
held to be strict legitimate with a
profit left over for extra advertising
value A little whIle ago however the
chef figuring that he would lled a little
extra money about this time thought he
saw a chance to make i on the sIde So
to the chef ot n rival lobster palace he
offered to bet a substantial sum that It
would be n boy His friend after look
ing up a few statistic was n little more
than willing to bet even money that It
would be 0 girl I isnt Its twIns a
boy and a girl The chef gets double
prize money again and his employer
promises to throw In an extra 2 for
good measure But the bet I still undecided
decldecChurch Services of Mutes
The most remarkable week ot church
services ever held in this city has just
come to a closea week at services In
which though sermons were preached
and hymns Bung not a word was spoken
not a sound heard The congregations
were composed entirely of deatmutes to
whom Father Tom Galvin talked with his
fingers and the varying expressions ot
his mobile features With hIm they joined
In singing the hymns still in the silent
finger language The service which was
as simple as It could be made began with
a hymn which was perfecty well known
It seemed to all the silent people Father
Tom lined It out with his brIsk fingers
and as he thus sang swiftly with rapid
fingers the congregation followed him
word for word sign for sign The church
was so still that the swishing of serge
somewhere away back in the glom as a
priest passed along the aisle struck hard
upon the ear Some ot the congregation
were mufh more adept than others In
keeping pace with Father Tom for some
were gesticulating a full line behind hIm
struggling hard to catch up Their eyes
ware glonmln with interest and tfV
were smiling with pleasure After the
hymn came a thirtymInute sermon and
with another
then the service concluded wih
hymn More than 2 deafmutes from
markable aU parts services ot the city attended these re
