B. Meves, a jeweler of San Pablo

that h« sold a watch to & stranger,
who gave him a bogus $20" in pay
Also Made Him Human Target
and Arrest Follows
James Robertson and Jack Burns are
English sailors. Hugh Gill is also an
English sailor. Policemen Fowl and
Spriagett« arrested the trio Wednes
day night and here Is the cause:
At 1249 Kentucky 6treet is a sailors'
boarding house. T"he policemen, hear
ing sounds of revelry, entered and
found Gill lying on the floor, w.hile
Robertson was executing a sailor's
hornpipe on his chest. Gill was at
tempting to remonstrate, but every
tim£ Robertson landed and his breath
"came forth wordless. Burns was
standing by applauding.
After Gill had been resuscitated he
said they were drinking and Robertson
-got a. sheet and cut a hole In It, then
forced Gill to. put his head through,
the fashion of the "hit the nigger
baby" game. Instead *of throwing
eggs or baseballs, Robertson used beer
bottlei, but, after breaking several on
Gill's head, decided he was not a? clever
dodger, so started the hornpipe dailce
on him.
Burns took exception to the arrest
and insisted that his evening's amuse
ment was being interfered with. Burns
was taken along.. lor resisting' an
officer. -
ONE of the Ne*v York critics wrote of "Elektra" at
the Metropolitan. that he retained an impression of
\u25a0-\u25a0\u25a0 crashing discord and general carnage, through which
a lily white Chrysotheniis; wandered, vaguely inton
ing words- that in effect were "Something is happening."
Mrs. L. M. Stevens remind* one irresistibly of
Chrysothemis. To be perfectly accurate, one ought to say
she is like the critic's idea of Chrysothemis,^ which is mis
leading, taken seriously. There are people who yfill^take
anything seriously, and they must be

women are smoking — a few v of them. Personally she has
never seen it done, except ; in Neu% MexicoT where she
found surroundings most unpleasant. Yet, "she adds, '-there
is reason to believe that some women in* England do
smoke cigarettes, and we are told that there are some in
America of like habits." , s ..
Mrs. Stevens is president ;of the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union, and she made this" statement before a
national convention last week. Any day 'she roay extend
her discoveries. She might read Gertrude Atherton's re
cent, remarks to a ; Ne\\r Yprk reporter.
In her cordial, direct "way, Mrs. Atherton says that while
public lecturers rant and make themselves ridiculous about
it, women of the better class smoke. The sentiment against
it she calls stodgy and bourgeois, characterized by pious
animadversions against a harmless pastime. Some one
ought to fell Mrs. Stevens. * * . , './,

"The Costliest Piano
in the World
The achievement of the highest possible results .in any line
of human endeavor, to build better, more artistically and more
permanently, to create that which sets a hew standard of excel-
lence, can be accomplished only by the broadest research, "the
use of the finest of materials and the most painstaking effort, sup-
plemented by one thing— -creative genius.
is the crystallization of fancy into fact ; the realization of an
ideal— a determination to create a piano of such superiority
in tone, in action and in structural character as to establish in
\u25a0j thajt piano i he -one. standard by* which all pianos must be meas-
ured, with which all comparisons must be made.
Mason & Hamlin pianos cost more because tney are better
than other pianos ;'\u25a0 because more time is essential in their build-
ing, more care is taken and only the very best of materials enter
into them. ' Yet, considering their quality, they are not extrav-
agantly priced. : •\u25a0;••-\u25a0 : - '

Heated Arguments; First Arose
Over Who Should Name
the Bridesmaid
. A series of quarrel* starting two
we^eks before marriage were testified
to yesterday by Lena Schlott in her
suit tor . divorce from Ernest Schlott.
a prosperous dentist, partly tried by
Judjge Van Nostrand. In a cross com
plaint Schlott 'also' asks for a divorce,
charging- his wife with infidelity and
naming Clarence N. Wolfe as co
respondent.. * i
The dispute that preceded their mar
riage was on the question— a highly
important one from , the "intending
wife's point, of view— of who should be
her bridesmaid.. Her best girl friend
had been chosen by the bride for the
honor, but Schlott insisted that 'his
cousin should act. As there had been
a prior arrangement that Schlott
should select his best man and the
prospective wife her bridesmaid, Mrs.
Schlott said she' refused to give in to
the demands of Schlott, and her best
friend acted as bridesmaid. 9cstiO
There is $9,000 worth of community
property, Mrs. Schlott states. She asks'
for half of this and for reasonable
alimony, • saying her husband has an.
Income of $500 a month. ° °

Undue Influence Over Wealthy
Woman Is Alleged
An answer, was filed yesterday by
persons known as the O'Farrell heirs
of Teresa Wensinger to the suit begun
by 4 the Roman Catholic archbishop of
San Francisco in his corporate ca
pacity to quiet title to realty a^ Ninth
and Mission streets deeded to the .cor
poration by Mrs. Wensinger May 17,
1901. It is alleged in the answer that
ArchbiShop Rlordan exercised undue
influence over Mrs. Weaslnger. and
that .her signature was procured In
secret; that* Mrs. Wensinger was im
pressionable and easily susceptible to
the advice, directions and influence of
the "archbishop: that she became ab
sorbed and creduldus in her religious
devotions; that the archbishop culti
vated and ~ increased the confidence of
Mrs. Wensinger in him.
From 1901 to 1905, inclusive, the
answer sets forth. Teresa Wensinger
gave Archbishop Riordan 10 large dia
monds worth $5,000, $2,000 in cash and
valuable portraits and painting's. It is
also declared that before the death of
her husband, Francis S. Wensinger, the
two conveyed to the archbishop realty
in San Francisco valued - at J300.000.
The defendants ask that the, deed to
the Ninth and Mission streets realty be>
revoked and , that the property be
awarded to them.
The issue is the same as that tried
out in the contest of the will of Mrs.
Wensinger in Sonoma county, which
was decided in favor of the archbishop.
Th* 1 meeting of the Council of Jew
ish Women was held yesterday after
noon and the address of the afternoon

From Dyspepsia and Stomach Trouble ,
\u25a0.\u25a0 * o
Instantly Relieved and Permanently
» Cured by Stuart's Dyspepsia
A Xew Discovery, bat Xot \u25a0 Patent
\u25a0:.;•"• Mefilelne.
* Dr. Redwell relates an interestisg .
account of what he considers a re- .
markable case of* acute stomach
trouble and chronic dyspepsia by the
• use of the new discovery, Stuart's Dys-
pepsia Tablets.
He. says: "The patient waa a mar
who had v suffered, to my knowledge.
for years with dyspepsia. Everything
he ate seemed to sour and create gases
in the stomach. He had pains Ulw
rheumatism in the back, should**
blades and limbs, fullness and distress
after eating, poor appetite "and loss of
flesh; the heart became affected, caus-
ing palpitation and sleeplessness at
night., ' s
"I gaVe him powerful nerve tonics
and blood remedies, but to no purpose.
A« an experiment I finally bought a
50-cent package of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets at a drug store and gave them
yto him. Almost Immediate relief was
given, and after he had used four boxes
he was to all appearances fully cured.
"There was no more acidity or sour,
watery risings, no bloating after meals,
the appetite was vigorous, and he h£»s
gained between 10 and 12 pounds in
weight of solid, healthy flesh.
_ "Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
are advertfsed and sold irfdrug stores,
yet I consider them a most valuable
addition to any physician's line of
remedies, as they are perfectly harm-
less and can be given to children or
Invalids or In " any condition of th*
stomach with perfect safety, being
harmless and containing nothing but
fruit and vegetable essences, pure pep-
sin and Golden Seal. - *
"Without any question they are the
safest, most effective cure for Indiges-
tldn, biliousness, constipation and all
derangements of the stomach, however
slight or severe."
