WITHHOLDS PAY OF
CITY FIRE MARSHAL
Oakland Auditor Fears Position
Held by Fire Chief Was /
Created Illegally.
{}; OAKLAND,. Jan. 6.— City I Wuflitor
George Gross is holding, up the first
monthly, pay /warrant- by which. N.* A."
Ball, ; chief of the" fire department, is
given i $300 :a, month salary. He Is
awaiting ,'• legal advice . which would
t sanction the .claim and cities the city
.charter as ground 'for 'Qoubt.
it. Under, the charter the salary of the
chief engineer.. of the" fire department
is $150 a month. \ Several months ago
charter, amendments to increase the
salary .were defeated at the polls, and
Ball informed the police and fire com
\u25a0j missioners ; that he would^ resign. . To
hold him -in the service of the city a
plan was devised to increase his salao*.
- The; city. council passed an ordinance
creating the position of fire marshal at
a monthly salary of $300. Bali was put
into -the^office.
The first warrant for the higher, sal
•alry is now -In the auditor's hands.
Gross < has asked for an opinion from
City. Attorney Stetson, and has. been
told that the' action of, the council was
legal. , But the auditor seeks further
justification, and has referred the point
to '. a private attorney. He doubts
whether or not the 'creation of the new
job is justifiable,' as an evasion of the
charter provls'ions.
•T hope I will be justified in audit
ing - the warrant." said Gross, "for the
city , can not afford to dispense with
Chief Ball's services. He is one of the
best .fire chiefs in the west. It is a
shame to ask such a man to serve for
$150. a month. " .
"As the case stands, howevei 1 , it is
a- question whether the fire marshal
Is an employe of the 'city or. an official.
If an employe,, the council had jurisdic
tion to create the position; but if it is
an official's appointment the place is
illegally , created. I hope to have an
opinion in a day or two, and one favor
able to Chief Ball."
The chief has reiterated his Intention
to resign if the increased salary is not
paid to him.

REFUSES TO LEAVE
PRISON FOR HOME
Machinist Jailed for Assaulting
Wife Prefers Cell to Company
of Nagging Spouse >
ALAMEDA. Jan. 6. — "Home, sweet
home," has no charms for Herman
Xorden like the peace and quiet of a.
reinforced, double barred steel cell In
the city prison, where, Xorden says. he.
feels safe from the chronic nagging fey
his ,wife. The prisoner, who declares
that he has been henpecked to the limit,
astounded everybody, at the municipal
Jail today by refusing to permit friends
to bail him out.
Norden was arrested on the complaint
of his wife, who alleged that he
smashed a chair on ncr head and lacer
ated her scalp. He is charged with bat
tery and his case has been set for hear
ing before Police Judge R. B. Tappaa
Tuesday morning.
The bail orNorden is fixed at $250.
Two of the prisoner's friends visited tho
jail today and ottered to provide tho
bail. They were surprised when tho
alleged wife beater refused to permit
them to obtain his release.
"Real llfe.liberty and the pursuit of
happiness is unknown to the husbaml
who has a nagging wife." said JJorden
in declining to -accept the assistance of
his friends. "My wife got me in her©
and I am almost prompted to thank her
for doing so. It seems that. l am on a.
vacation. , She can not break in to hen
peck me and I am. enjoying peaceful
days and nights of sweet repose.
"No, I don't want to be bailed out. IC
I we^nt home there would be more nag
ging and m6re trouble. I will stay hero
and take my medicine when the tlmV
comes." ' ' ,

flare ErolTed Some Strange and Won-
derful Theories Concerning
Stomach Treatment
A* Trial Package of Stuart's T>yspepsla
Tablets Sent Free
Within the last 20 years there havo
sprung Into existence theories by th©
score relative to the kinds of food that
human beings should eat. and should
avoid. With the tremendous Increase
in nervous and stomach diseases which
are caused by the strenuous life of this
neurotic, neurasthenic age in which
we live, we are constantly having our
attention called to some food faddist"*
"new Idea" on the subject of alimenta-
tion. . - .
Most prominent among these theo-
rists Is the vegetarian who Insists that
meat was neyer intended for the hu-
man stomach, despite the fact that his
ancestors for 6.000 years or more
used it as their principal article oC
diet; and the old patriarchs of Biblical
History who lived to prodigious old
ages were meat eaters. All of the
great nations of history have been
users of meat, and all of the most
powerful and advanced countries of
today employ it extensively In their
dietaries, and their superior develop-
ment and high degree of civilization
are in strong and striking contrast to
the decadent and degenerate nations oC
Asia- and the tropics, whose Inhabi-
tants are vegetarians.
Another fallacy which has lately be-
come a fad Is the so called "low-pro-
teld" diet. Now," the foods which ar»»
rich In proteids 'are the ones which,
build up nerve, brain, muscle and blood,
so that any great reduction In the
amount of proteid used simply mean*
semi-starvation for the most Important
centers of the system — the ones on
which we depend the most to enable us
to successfully fight* the battles of life.
Those' nations whose people use fooda
containing but little proteid are never
of large frame or .well built. The Jap-
anese, who have always been small ot
stature, have since adopting a more
liberal proteid diet shown a remark-
able Increase in size, vigor and gen-
eral development; and it Is only slnco
Japan became a meat-eating nation
that it has developed into a world
power.
Still another theory lately advanced
Is that sugar, pepper and salt are-
gastric Irritants and irritate the mu-
cous membrance of the stomach, al-
though it 13 known that sugar pos-
sesses a high caloric value, while pep-
per and salt assist digestion rather
: than interfere with it. as is claimed.
The no-breakfast plan, thetwo-meaj
per day, and even 'the one meal daily
has been advocated, while some advise-
a two or. three weeks* fast, during
which all food is withheld from "the
st,omach "to give It a rest," completely
ignoring the fact that, the system's
tissues ara being constantly torn down,
and cast oft. and new material to re- 1
build them must be supplied from tho
food. . '
It is utter nonsense to concern one's
self about all these absurd and illogi-
cal theories, as life Is entirely too
short, and there are other things re-
quiring our attention. Bat what you
want when you want it. .and as much
as the system needs to .replenish Its*
waste, and then take one or two of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and forget
all about food fads and stomach trou-
bles. They digest all kinds of food so
thoroughly you -won't know you hay»
a stomach. They are powerful dlges-
tors of i every . kind of -food t*hough>
harmless to the system, and may be-
taken at any time and In any quantity.
