WOMAN BURGLAR FIGHTS
HER FEMININE CAPTOR
Pulls Hair and Scratches
Landlady, Who Sees
Her Departing
Fighting: like a trapped tiger, a
woman giving her name as Jean Ward |
was arrested yesterday morning bj* the \
united efforts of Mrs. Louis Musiadine j
of 1236 Point Lobos avenue and j
Policeman Hightowor of the O'Farrell ;
street station. In her hand when ar- }
rested was a valuable alligator skin |
prip belonging to Mrs. Musiadine and. I
bidden in a large pocket under her J
skirt such as shop lifters wear, was a!
tin box containing: ?5.50 In cash and i
. b number of laundry tickets from the i
laundry of K. Bordenaive, at 4SOJ
Fifth avenue. She was locked up
charged with burglary.
Mrs. Musiadine was busy sweeping
the kitchen of her home yesterday
mornincj when she heard a noise in the i
bedroom directly overhead. Going into
the hall she was just in tim* to seel
yey c Ward woman leaving the house, {
g Tying with her a grip, which Mrs. j
• ;:jsla.dine recognized as her own.
waiting: to call for aid, Mr?, i
MusJadin^ ran after the woman ana',
caught her as she was descending the j
front steps. When the Ward woman '
found herself trapped she turned on i
her pursuer and began to fight. The j
clothes of both women were torn and
their faces scratched before Mrs. Musla
line .managed to overpower the woman
sufficiently to ask a passing boy to run
for a policeman.
With the appearance of Patrolman j
Higrhtower the Ward woman began !
fighting f urJously again and it was all j
That the policeman could do to hold I
her. Finally he managed to get her
to the police station, a disheveled
wreck. There she begged piteously
for "headache powders," but refused
positively to make any explanation
of her presence in the Musiadine home, j
other than that she was looking f or j
rooms "with a friend," whose name she i
declined to tell.

HILL POST DIRECTORIES
IN DEVISADERO STREET
Cross Town Line Is Also
Discussed by the Local
Association
Devisadero street is to have a sepa
rate directory of its own. posted at the
corner of each block and to be .re
vised once a month. 'Such, was ihe
decision of the Devisad<»ro street im
provement association at its last meet
ing. This directory is to contain the
names, places and lines of business of
the various business and professional
men and others located in Devisadero
street.
Among «h«» other subjects of discus
sion whkli came up at the recent meet
ing: was '.hat of greater San Francisco,
and a number of delegates were ap
pointed to attend the meeting of the
greater San Francisco committee and
the. banquet, which is to be given at
the Fairn.c.r.t.- -v'"
From many of the members came a
vigorous protest against the reported
proposed removal of some of the lights
in the street, and the chairman of the
light committee assured the meeting
that the rumor was baseless. The pro
nosed Devisadero-Misslon street cross
town car line was discussed and it^was
resolved to ask the members""' of
the other Improvement associations
throughout the city to unite in the
work of procuring this line, which
is to connect the Devisadero and West
ern addition sections with the Mission.
TEAMSTER KILLED WHEN
FREIGHT CARS HIT WAGON
Man at His Side Escapes With Few
Bruises, but Friend Perishes
Instantly
Patrick Regan, a teamster who lived
at Eleventh avenue and N street, was
instantly killed yesterday morning
when two freight cars of the. Southern
Pacific, which were being shunted
along the tracks at Sixth and Townsend
streets, collided with the wagon on
which ha was riding and wrecked it.
Regan was out of work, and was
taking a ride with his friend, J. T.
Bond, a driver for Miller & Lux, \u25a0when
the accident happened. The two cars
had been attached to a long string,
which a locomotive, In charge of En
gineer &. McHenry, was cutting out on
the tracks.
The locomotive was some distance up
the track and "kicked" the cars back.
Neither of the men on the wagon saw
the cars coming until too late. The
heavily loaded cars crashed into the
side of the wagon, overturning it and
hurling the men to the street. Bond es
caped with a few bruises, but Regan
was dead when he was picked up.

LIFE IN SURF ON BEACH

Where Physicians Resusci
tate Her \.
For the second time In her life Mary
Hammond attempted suicide yesterday
and failed. Her unconscious body was
seen rolling in the waves at the foot

a patrolman of the life saving station

from the surf and notified Captain
Louis Jacobson.
The pair -worked over her for more
than an hour attempting to restore vi
tality and were failing, when they
summoned aid from the central emer
gency hospital, where, after several
hours' work, the doctors succeeded in
bringing the woman back to life.

DoPeopleTurnAway?
You Can Be Instantly Freed From the
Humiliation of Knowing That Others
Detect Bad Odors on Your Breath, '
Arising From Indigestion, Smok-
ing, Drinking and Eating
Trial Package to Prove It Sent^Free
Breath perfumes do not strike at the
root of the evil. They only conceal the
odor for a time. But charcoal kills the
gas that "causes the odor, purifies the
food lying in your stomach and intes-
tines, facilitates the process of diges-
tion, acts as a mild laxative, gives tone
to the system; in short, gives you a
clean bill of health, j And all the char-
coal necessary to obtain these results
you can get in a box of Stuart's Char-
coal Lozenges, price 25c.
The uses of charcoal are many. In
art and electricity it is constantly used,
but it is especially valuable where ab-
solute purity of product is required.
As an absorbent and disinfectant it has
no equal. That is why you will in-
variably find It in every water filter.
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges are made
from pure willow charcoal, with a
slight mixture of honey to render
them palatable. They^will filter your
blood for you, destroy every particle
of poison and impurity, absorb all the
gas In your stomach, give you a sweet,
clean breath, and relieve you from the
awkward feeling you are bound to have
when you detect by the expression of
other people that they smell your bad
breath. Many who are fond of onions
avoid eating them because of the odor
they leave. One of Stuart's Charcoal
Lozenges immediately kills this, how-
ever. The same applies to smoking,
drinking or chewing. . . •
We are so convinced that you wUI find
these lozenges indispensable after once
using them that we will send you a
sample package by mail, free* if you.
will send your name and address today
to F. A. Stuart Co., 200 Stuart Bldg.,

About" s3l.ooo in involved.; ;;
Attorney Choynski. representing th*
liquor dealers,, argued that ; it was not
justice to retain the money; paid for
licenses, inasmuch as his clients had
been unable to reopen for several
months. He said that .the police com
mission had compelled the saloonmen
to pay the license when making appli
cation for permits, and in' some cases
they had been unable to resume busi
ness for six months. Immediately aft
er the fire the saloons were, closed by
order -of the mayor,; and 'whenrpermis
sion' was gi\*en to reopen not a few
of ' the. 'applicants' had. !been unable to
secure .* locations.,! Under the circum- J
stances : he; believed that the money
should be returned by the city.
-Supervisors Comte and Brenner fa
vored giving the saloonmen- credit for
the amounts, paid by them when their
licenses next became due. and Sullivan
and Murphyv were opposed.
"After a lengthy discussion it was de
cided to continue ; the hearing until
some future meeting. In\the. mean
time the clerk of the board will segre
gate the claims, so that it # will be
possible to determine how many of the
applicants were forced by the police
commission to pay licenses while they
were without locations to transact busi
ness. It was through desire to secure
their old stands that they applied for
permits before the sites had been
cleared of debris.
