JAIL BETTER THAN
ALIMONY PAYMENT
Keeper Prefers Life at
Ingleside to Obeyance of
Court's Decree
i ' - '. >
for William Stark
Threaten Habeas Corpus to
Secure His Release
.i . > •
A new plan to avoid paying alimony
has b^en used tiy William Stark, a sa
loon keeper. Stark's. plan is to go, to
the county jail and stay there until
the city gets tired of supporting him.
Ftark *ha* been at the Jngleslde resort
nlmost a year.
January IS, .1910, lie was committed
by Judge Troutt for failure to pay his
divorced wife. Alice, |100 (Ulmony.
Now his attorneys. Choynskt and Hum
jifcreys. say they will get him out on
si wrtt of habeas corpus.
"I will rot hire before I pay ali
mony." Stark declared a few days ago
to a committee of tho grand Jury that
v!sltod the county Jail. He has said
th<* panje thing many times to the of
ficials at th«> jail.
The minute order entered by Judge
Troutt's clerk recites that Slark shall
l>e Imprisoned 24 hours. The coVimit-
Tnent handed to the sheriff, however,
contain? the. additional provision that
Stark be kept in tho county jail until
th* $100 has b«v»n paid. That would
mean imprisonment for the term of his
natural life if he maintained his pres
ent obstinate attitude and 4f the court
did not relent. Jud^y* Troutt Jnti
inatod yesterday that If the proper
showing were made that th« man Is
without means to pay alimony he
Motild orxlrr him released.
Stark dofled the court because .Tudgc
Troutt awarded the v control and cus
tody of his young daughter to the
mother, permitting him to take the
child out only twice a month.

j As soon as sh«» realized that there was
trouble of some nature Mrs. Dodge :

Little Is Stolen
The men had little time to carry out
their scheme of robbery, and escaped
only with % 1.50 belonging to Hang, his
spectacles, the household keys and the
scarf worn by Mrs. 'Gale when con
fronted by the men.
The two armed. men : rang the bell
at 1:20 sharp. When Hang opened the
door they asked !f "Mr. Robert Smith"
lived there. On being answered in the
negative they asked the name of the
owner. Before Hang could reply they
were on top of him.
"If you make an outcry we will shoot
you," thp taller of the two said, hold
ing a pirtoi to the frightened man's
head. "What we want is money."
"There i? no money," the Chinese re
plied, knowing that Mrs. Dodge did
not keep any large sums in the house.
Seized and Bound ,•..*•.
"Well we want money, and we're go
ing to have it,", was the reply, and. he
was " seized and . boprid and .searched.
Mrs. Dodge and Mrs. Gale were still
in the breakfast room.- and at the .un
usual sounds,' Mrs. Gale walked into
the front hall. At sight of the bandits
she ran down the hall screaming.
Both men immediately ; gave chasuv
threatening to s!;»>ot her if she tfid not
stop. ' .
"We will not hurt you if you shut
your mouth," the taller robber said.
"We want money, and we will have
money." ' . •
"I have no money," Mrs. Gale yelled.
"Then hold your tongue." the man
RomiRUS ESCAPE -
"I won't." Mrs. Gale said, as the man
caught her by the scarf. She wrenched
herself free from his grasp and heard
as she did so her sister's call for help.
Annie Carroll, who was at work. In the
kitchen, and who also heard the
screams ran out to the telephone and
rang up the police station. When the
robbers sa wtheir game was balked
they took to their heels', at once, but
not before Annie Carroll had a good
enough glimpse at them to be able to
identify the pair.
The men are described as wearing
dark clothes and having dark eyes. One
of them was about 5 feet 7 Inches, the
other a little taller, and while neither
was really* poorly or shabbily dressed
there was something seedy in their
general appearance.
As this is the fourth or fifth house \u25a0
I robbery 'in the neighborhood within the
I last fortnight the residents are thor
iouprhly alarmed and a number of detec
tiv«>s 'have been detailed to wat<ii the
neighborhood for £U«picious characters.
A few minutes before the robbery two
of the sleuths were directly across the
street and had only just moved up tie
block when the men. evidently finding
the street free, mado t lipir entrance.
The door of the Dodge home Is on the
side of the house and between it and
the Ltillienthal home next door there Is
a Ftretch of garden. Therefore, there
whs considerable privacy for thf» rob
bers at their work, as the doorway Is
j barely noticeable from the street. |
POLICEMEX ARRIVE \
In response'to the telephone message
Policemen Gable and O'Connor went out
at once to the house at 2015 F,ranklin
street, but could find no clew to the
robbers. Detectives Lambert and Bailey
have been detailed on the .case. The
men are supposed to be the same that
haVe terrorized the fashionable dis
trict by their robberies for the last few
I weeks.
When seen yesterday afternoon Mrs.
Gale was almost prostrated from fright.
*I , was so angry at the time." she
said, "that my fright took the form of
defiance. Now 1 see in what grave dan
ger we all really were. The men were
desperate for money and were vldntly
prepared to. take any chances. In this
big house their efforts woutd^have been

DILLARD TESTIFIES
AGAINST BR. BURKE
Says He Saw Sanatorium's
Head Lurking Near Scene
of the Explosion
Skeletons Rattled in Attempt to
Break . Down Evidence of
Former Clerk '.
Continued from Pace t
Eton, and the court' upheld the district
attorney.
' "Is it not true." penUsted the defense,
"that because of your forced resigna
tion -for gross immoralities you "have
had a feeling of anger against Doctor
Burke?" »f.\r, •
1 The witness any such state
of feeling^ and to further questionings
along the same line said .that 'ho was
somewhat friendly to the defendant
The defense .worked every inch of
ground to discredit him. Throughout
its questioning it maintained its policy
of trying to prove that Doctor Burke
' was the victim of a plot on the part
of Dr. A. \V. Hltt and others.
Sticks to the Story
". -Dillard, however, stuck squarely to
his story. He denied all existence of
/a. plot, and though the defense man
aged lto break him down on ori« or
two minor points, it failed to dislodge
him from the stand that he had - taken
in regard to his statements about Doc
tor- Burkes prowling: about Lv Etta
Smith's tent. • -. .
VI ; was in bed at the time of the
explosion," he said on cross examina
tion, "and the- moment I . heard It I
jumped out and'- ran to a -window. I
surmised that Lv Etta Smith's tent had
been blown up and I spoke to my wife
about It I then dressed and went
outside. I did not go to the tent at
first."
"Why not?JL he was asked.
"Because I was afraid I might step
on some of the pieces of her body."
was the startling reply. The day fol
lowing I wrote to Doctor Hitt.**
LETTER TELL.S OF FIGHT
Tn this letter he spoke of the con
ditions at- the health Tesort. and pleaded
that something should be done.
To break down the effect of his tes
timony the defense produced another
letter, written by him to Doctor Burke,
in which sentiments of a different na
ture were expressed. This second let
ter dealt with the fist fight between
Doctor Hitt and Mrs. Aggie Burke, be
cause, according to the letter, the chief
surgeon tried to force himself into the
room where women were to be exam
ined. The letter concludes:
"I may be a little excited just now,
but doctor, I love your work, your
principles, your life work and your
aims."
SUBPEXAED BY DEFEXSE
Abbie Smith, the witness who told
of her farcical marriage to a surgeon
in. the United States army, wassub
penaed today by the defense. Within
the last few days the defense has been
securing a number of witnesses, and
now has 62 subpoenaed. There "was
a hope that with a week's uninter
rupted trial the case could be disposed
of before the end of the year, but
all these witnesses are to be called by
the defense the probabilities are that
the verdict of the." jury will not be re-,
turned until the end of January. . .

DON'T BE BALD
One of . Onr Headers Tells How She
Obtained a Marvelous Growth
of Xew Hair by the Use of a
Simple Home Remedy After
Hair Specialists and Ton-
ics Had All Failed
T had what most people would C3ll a
beautiful head of golden hair. I prized
it most hlerhli'- fi3 X considered it my
chief attraction. Suddenly it bejran to
come out very rapidly, and at times I
had intense" itching of the scalp. Phy-
sicians and hair \u25a0 specialists said my
case was one of dandruff germs, hair
microbes, etc., but nothing that they
pave me did the slightest good. On
the contrary, my bair seemed to come
out even. faster, and I was now fearful
lest I should become entirely bald. In
my despair a friend told me of an
Ecuador herb whtch he said would pos-
itively grow hair on any head where
the hair roots were not entirely prone,
and hesaid the natives of the country
where it, grew were famous for their
beautiful Ion?: hair. Upon medical ad-
vice. I combined this herb with Bay
Rum and Menthol Crystals and Imme-
diately began its use. In three applica-
tions it entirely stopDed the intense
Itching of my scalp and In a' very short
time it not only stopped my falltnj?
hair, but I noticed a-n abundance of new
hair coming in. In less than one month
my hair was longer, thicker and moro
beautiful than ever. All due to this
marvelous hair growing herb. A lady
to whom I gave the formula used it on
her -daughter, and she said it made her
hair grow five inches in less than a
month. Doctors to whom I have shown
it say it is the only thing which will
actually grow -new hair, therefore. I
think the public ought to have it. At
first I thought I would keep lfa secret
and sell the secret, but when I think
how I suffered and how badly I needed
it and how hundreds of others must
need it. the same as I did. I feel I ought
to give it to the wortd. Therefore I au-
thorize this paper to publish the for-
mula, which is as follows: Bay Rum.
six ounces; Lavona de Composee'. two
ounces: Menthol Crystals. H drachm. If
you like It perfumed, add a few drops
of To-Kalon Perfume, which mixes per-
fectly with the other Ingredients. This.
however, is not necessary.
Be sure to ask the druggist for all
the inclosures in the Lavona rte Com-
posee' package. One of them entitles
you to a handsome free sprinkler toy
for your Hair Tonic bottle and you are
also entitled to receive the free advice
of an expert on the hair by simply
writing to the address you will find In-
closed in the carton.
Ask your driT&gist for an eight ounce
bottle containing sfx ounces of Bay
Rum; then put in the Menthol Crystals
and the Perfume. Next add one-half
of the bottle of Lavona de Compose*',
let it stand six to eight hours and add
the remainder of the Lavona de Com-
posee'. Always buy the Lavona <1«
Composee* in a two ounce sealed bottle,
as this preparation contains the juice
of the Ecuador herb mentioned above,
and it loses its strength If unsealed.
Apply the preparation night and morn-
ing and rub well into the scalp. Tf
properly used it will produce most as-
tonishing results. Be careful not to get
it on the face or any part of the body
where you do not want to produce hair.
The Baer Drug Company, the well
known and popular druggists of this
city, have filled this formula for many
of their patrons, and state that the.
satisfaction from its use Is so great
that they have found it necessary to
make provision to nil thJ prescription
promptly and carefully.
