Scrutiny of the returns by ward and
jirecinct show- that Professor Merriam
vai given almost 7 per cent less votes
given Busse (republican) four
years ago, while Harrison ran more
;than 17 per cent ahead of the figures
of Dunne (democrat) at that time. The
vote reached above 340,000, which is
approximately 25,000 more than the
record at the last mayoralty contest
In spite of this, both sides agreed
that Merriam lost through failure of
the "silk stocking" wards to- show the
strength that had been expressed in
favor of the college man. The first

FOR WEAK HEARTS
Those who wish to live to old age
need to take care of their hearts and
preserve th«ir vigor. This can be done
only by hygienic precautions, pspe.
cially in avoiding alcoholic stimulants,
and also in avoiding anythlpg that con
stricts or cramps this organ. If by
bending over desks one becomes narrow
f-hested, th<» heart has less room and
can not do its work so easily. It would
be for the heart like exercise for the
muscles with dumbbells or clubs in a
small bedroom. The gymnast could
get no free play for his limbs |n such
This is also one of the evils of tight
clothing, not only corsets, but coats
and vests that constrict the free play
of the chest. They cramp the move
ments of the heart and make them less
perfect. So excessive eating gives the
heart more work to do. and often taxes
it beyond Its power. When the food is
changed into blood the heart has to
force it all through the body, and if the
organ is weak it often falls to act. and
then what happens every one knows.
Weak hearts may be strengthened by
moderate and regular exercise of al
most any kind. It is unwise, when the
heart is weak, to avoid physical cul
ture. Al! one has to do is to avoid ex
tremes, simply taxing the heart up to
its strength and no more. Do this
regularly and the heart will gain
slowly in vigor. Persons with fatty
degeneration of the heart have been
greatly improved by systematic exer

Big Benefit for Nursery Will
Take Place Tomorrow and
Two Days More
Everybody Enthused and the
Managers Order a Bigger
A meeting of the directors of the San
Francisco nursery was held yesterday
afternoon, when final arrangements for
tomorrow's- pencil sale were made. It
has been agreed that to each of the
women who are managing the affair
will be assigned a district, which they
and their assistants will patrol.
The idea of the nursery pencils, while
original with its patrons, is not a new
one. For some time Its directors have
conducted private sales of these pen
cils, which bear the inscription: "Lest
you forget San Francisco nursery home
Apparently It is being appreciated
not only by private Individuals, but by
the large mercantile establishments and
factories aa well, for large orders have
come in from most of the wholesale
houses of the city. So great Is the de
mand that an order for more pencils
has been placed with the manufactur
ers, and further requests for large as
signments may have to be filled after
the three days of the sale are past.
The women in charge of the nursery
are more than encouraged by the hearty
co-operation of the city at large.
GOODS IN WAGON
Policemen Follow Former Con
vict and Companion, but
Latter Eludes Pursuer
Captured while attempting- to hlae
the goods lie and a. companion had
stolen, Stanislaus Bresky, alias Wane
akowski. a former convict, wag taken
to the ity prison early yesterday
morning charged with burglary. Dry
goods worth $1,500 were stolen Mon
day night from the (Jolden Gate cloth
ing company. 3027 Sixteenth street.
The articles were recovered and iden
tified at the hall of justice by H. Levy,
manager of the store.
Abo k yesterday morning,
Policemen Rooney ami Kusseii saw
two men driving a wagon down Third
street towar.i Harrison. When they
followed one of the men jumped from
the wagon and ran down Silver street.
The driver turned down the same
street and stopped at a store where
the driver was joined by the other
man and both began carrying bundles
Inside. Russell and Rooney ran down
the. alley and whil« Rooney held
Bresky prisoner, Russell started after
the other man. The thief ran Into
the store. ascenJed a loft, crashed
through the glass of a skylight and,
descending a ladder, made his way
into Perry street and escaped.
Bresky was one of the band of 10
political prisoners who escaped from
the Russian penal colony on Sahelen
island off the Siberian coast August
14, 1893. and were brought here after
drifting 24 days in an open boat, sub
sisting on seaweed.
Soon after their arrival, two of their
band murdered Louis Webej- an,i his
wife in their home at Fifteenth and
L streets, Sacramento. Ivan Kovolov
was captured and hanged in Folsom
prison for the crime.
Bresky was sent to San Quentln in
1596 for burglary in this city and
released a year ago after serving 13
years of a 20 year sentence. He was
arrested subsequently and charged
with an attempt to commit burglary,
but the case was dismissed.
RAISED BY ROBINS
G. W. Bulman. in Country Life, un
folds an interesting plan for introduc
ing nightingales into the London parks.
The difficulties, it would seem, are more
apparent than real. London is thought
to be almost the center of nightingale
land. Sir John Sinclair some years ago
succeeded in rearing some of the birds
in Scotland. He obtained a number of
nightingales' eggs from the south, pay
ing a shilling each for them. These he
had placed in robins' nests on his es
tate. They were duly hatched and the
young nightingales were reared by the
robins. At the usual time in the autumn
they left for the south, and never re
turned. Bulman suggests that similar
means should be adopted In London,
with some probability of the birds re
turning, for ornithologists hold that
birds return to breed where they were
reared. Scotland being without the
nightingale line would account for Sir
John Sinclair's birds not returning.

because of the latter'? personal spite.
He had discharged Abbatemaggio from
Ills employment, he said.
In forging the chain of evidence
against the 36 Camorrlsts, the carabi
neers alleged that they found In De
Marinis' home a postal card addressed
to htm by Luigt Arena and asking for
the death of Cuoccolo because he had
betrayed the writer to the authorities.
In telling the story of the murder.
Abbatemaggia said that such a postal
card had been written and that upon
its receipt by De Marinis the assas
sinations were planned. The informer
■ISO said that De Marinis took posses
sion of Cuoccolo's ring for the pur
pose of sending it to Arena, who was
in prison as evidence that he had been
avenged. Subsequently the carabineers
professed to have found the ring at
the home of a woman friend of De
Mat in is.
Replying to questions by President
Planchl, De Marinis said that. Arena
never had written him. He could not
recall having met the man. He de
nied that he had received the ring.
As for the Cuoccolos, he did not know
either of them.
Do Marinis admitted that he was B
usurer, but said that he was innocent
of the crimes charged.
De Marinis. who is an expert in Jew
elry, when handed the ring which Is
supposed to have been taken from
Cuoccolo. told President Bianchi that
the ring had not been worn, that it
showed no signs of wear and that It
was too small for Cuoccolo.
Turning to Abbatemagglo. De Marinls
asked on WBTch finger Cuoccolo wore
the ring. To this the informer replied:
