ACCORDING to statistics in a
Washington newspaper, Miss
Jennie Crocker will have to stand
:■ no fewer than 16 proposals' dur
ing her stay in London. It would dis
courage a serious minded girl ((mean
ing a girl without a sens, of humor),
or. anyone with an 'impatient disposi
tion. Sixteen solemn offers of marriage
done in the formal British manner
must, be awful. If they were diverting
at first, by the third week out they
would pall dreadfully; and at. No. 9
courteous regrets or common polite
ness would cease to be possible with an ordinarily intolerant person.
Happily, Miss Crocker has both a sense of humor and an admirable en-
Ivould cease to be pos*-iblf with an ordinarily intolerant person,
•ppily. Miss Crocker has both a sense of humor and an admirable .en
durance. If she is bored she conceals it beautifully, and there is the discreet
sense of humor afterward. '
The idea that she may accept one of the 16 (or more) is too disagreeable
to be considered. There is every reason to believe she -will return after
two months in England, quite unengaged. Because Miss Crocker never has
married a British title in the past, so why should she do so this season?
When she went over to be maid of honor at the Honorable John Ward's
wedding, she was called "one of the greatest heiresses on the market," who
was said to have received "no fewer than two proposals* a week from, titled
members of the aristocracy." It was discovered at the end of her. visit, how
ever, that, although an heiress, this independent-American girl was not "on
the market," as flattering scribes had said. And she is still not on the mar
ket for titled bids. *
This year Miss' Crocker will divide her time between Dorchester, house,
with the Whitelaw Reids, and the new home of the John Wards, in St. James
square, which has been leased for the .season.from the Marquis of Bristol.
Just at the present her cousin John is being honored from King George
by the latter*s mother, the dowager queen. He is directing Alexandra's tour
of the Mediterranean in the royal yacht, although the cables state that King
George "hated to .lend him," as his executive gifts are invaluable at Buck
ingham palace. Mrs. Ward is at her country home, Chilton park; but the
family will be established in London before their California cousin .arrival
next month. Miss Crocker was presented at King Edward's court two years
ago, and this year will meet the new monarch. With the Terapleton Crocker
she will be among the comparatively few Americans to see the coronation.
Finally, a certain sense of insecurity will be inevitable at home, while
Miss Crocker is abroad refusing coronets. It will prevail until her safe
return.
The wedding of Miss
Mabel Gregory .and Dr.
John Murletta at the

to be quiet went through their pockets.

Booklovers’ Contest Causes
Big Demand for Catalogues
Crowds Besiege Office.... of The Call to Get

Sunday is termed a day.of rest," but the men. employed in the busi
ness office of The Call had no,rest yesterday.' It was not announced
that catalogues and coupon certificate books would be; sold yesterday,
and it was taken for granted that no one would appear to ask for them.
But the tremendous interest in The Call .! Booklovers'; Contest was
not taken into account. A steady, stream'of people filled the office-all
day getting ■catalogues and coupon certificate" books. Not many 'are
asking for single pictures and coupons. All seem aware '■- of '. the fact
that -they can get :as many pictures and coupons as' they -will need
absolutely free, under the coupon certificate book plan, and they, are
taking advantage of it. > •-
A half page announcement in this issue-of The Call tells' all about
that coupon certificate book plan. Turn to it and see how you can
get your pictures and coupons free—absolutely free. '
Yesterday's invasion of contestants seeking catalogues diminished
the supply perceptibly, and now the hope that the catalogues:might
survive the rush.today and last over Tuesday, seems slighter, than ever.
The call for catalogues has exceeded expectations. Contestants are riot
required to secure catalogues, and so it was decided that there would
not be a tremendous call for them. But the rush began with the first
-.announcement that The Call had issued a catalogue of 5.000
books to aid contestants, and it has increased every day, with no sign
of lessening. ''".*"
,\ The catalogue is the best that The Call could obtain. : It is copy
righted by the Booklovers* contest company of New-York, and the
Booklovers' Contest editor of The Call used it in selecting the. title
of books that have been represented in the pictures that have ap
peared thus far. All the titles of books represented in all the pictures
will be selected by the, Booklovers' Contest editor from this cata
logue. _: I - _ '„'-. *
In other words, the catalogue will .contain the 77 correct titles,
represented by the 77 pictures. :
Do you want a catalogue? If so you will have to hurry. They may.
be had at the San Francisco and Oakland offices of The Call, 35 cents
each; 40 cents by mail.
Sunday was taken advantage of by many people as a free day, in
which they could stroll around* and look over the prizes The Call
will award in the Booklovers' Contest.
The Velie five passenger touring car, value $2,100, first prize, can
be seen, with the Ford five passenger car, second prize, and the Ford
open runabout, fourth prize, in the show;rooms of the.Standard motor
car company, Van Ness'and Golden Gate avenues.
„.. Many are calling to see the three superb Kohler & Chase player
pianos' that will be given as third, fifth'and sixth prizes; They are
on display at the San Francisco warerooms of Kohler & Chase, 26
O'Farrell street, and the Oakland warerooms, 1015 Broadway.
s ; No enrollment is. necessary in the Booklovers' Contest. So many
contestants are sending in their names for enrollment, or worrying
about it in letters to the editor, that a word of advice on this topic
seems called for. All the names of contestants"will be entered care
fully at the end of the contest, when each contestant,sends. in his' bun
dle of pictures and coupons.. Full instructions will.be given long be
fore the seventy-seventh picture appears as to how to send in - your
pictures and coupons, and how to send in your names with the bundle.
And plenty of time will •* be allowed for all contestants, no matter
in what part of California, Oregon or Nevada they, live, to get in their
bundles. Allowance will be made for stage trips and delays in the
mail. Do not worry more about that, you contestants who live far
from San Francisco. " ,' , _' " ' "; * "
Persons wishing to join the contest write every day that they want
pictures and coupons that have appeared thus far, that they may join
the contest. They, evidently are unaware of the strict ruling that all
pictures and coupons must-be obtained at the rate of 5 cents each.
These pictures and coupons are clipped.from,copies of The; Call, and
must be charged for at the price for which The Call sells—s cents'
each. *' -.- • r ..,;.'.
But all these people can get free pictures and coupons under the
coupon certificate book. plans, if they, but knew it. All desiring back
pictures and coupon? and extra pictures and coupons had better turn
to the half page announcement in this issue of The Call and learn how
to get all the pictures and coupons they want, free.
POLICE SEEK WIFE
OF SLAIN AMERICAN
Mexican Authorities Looking for
Relatives of G. A. Gaff,
Killed at Mazatlan
■--:-■ ,___-_.- . '^r~_- :■ ,r.^«e.ra«-__, , - --
Chief of Police Seymour received a
communication from William E. Alger,
United States consul at Mazatlan, Mex.,
yesterday, asking the aid of the local
police department In finding the wife of
G. A, Gaff, _. mining man, who was
found murdered in the outskirts of the
Mexican city on April 17. Detectives
are looking for Mrs. Sadie Gaff, who
is thought to be living in San Fran
cisco..
The letter from Alger was as fol
lows:
"Please locate wife of C 5-. A. Gaff, an
American, whose body was found in
the brush outside the city on April 17.
He had been dead about 10 days and
had evidently been murdered. Two sus
pects have been arrested. The authori
ties are looking for his. relatives, and
It Is; thought that his wife. Sadie, , is
now living in San Francisco. A let
ter found in Gaff's pocket bore the date
of February 13 and j had been written
In San Francisco. It said: "I hope that
you are getting along with the smelter.'
This leads to the belief that he was »
mining man, . . *
WILLIAM E. ALGER."
The police, after working all day on
the case, were unable to find Mrs. Gaff.
It is thought that she may.be In an
apartment house and further efforts to
find her -will be made today.
