CLUB WOMEN AID IN TRACING FORGERS Leaders in Civic League on Trail of Bogus Signers of Red Light Referendum N Clubwomen, headed by Mrs. Gene vieve Allen of the San Francisco cen ter of the Civic league, have offered their assistance to Assistant District Attorney Louis Ferrari in investigat ing- the alleged forgeries of signa tures to the referendum petitions on the red light and abatement act passed by the last legislature. Theodore Kytka. the handwriting expert, has undertaken the task. The petitions contained 31,000 names, which is 11.000 more than are needed to secure the referendum, but it is believed that a sufficiently large number of these are forgeries, which ■will destroy all possibility of stay ins the law. and as soon as the fact that these 11.000 or more signa tures are false is established, the statute will at once go into effect. The police have been asked to arrest one of the men who has been » iroulating a petition for the refer endum, which said to con tain a very number of forgeries. The man will be held at the city prison pending action by the grand jury, and it is probable that indict ments will be returned against sev eral others.

Cries of Ghost Drive 2 French Girls Insane The inhabitants of Kerranborn, in France, can talk of nothing but the haunted house which has been discov ered on one of the farms on the out skirts of the little town. Not to ac cept the ghost as an accomplished fact, let it only be said that his \?ries have driven two young girls quite mad. The family Croguennec, which lives, or did live, ln the haunted house, con sists of the mother, ah years old; two sons. Bernard and Francois Marie, anil a daughter. Alexandrine. They live on ■a large farm that yields an income of 13,000 a year. Now, for some months a great terror, heightened by the superstition of the peasants of Brit tany, weighs upon all the country side. The Oroguennec homestead has been found to be haunted! Nearly every night, says the Boston Transcript, the members of the fam ily become the prey of an atrocious fear, tormented as they are by the spirits, which appear in many terrify ing forms. "Worse, the spirits amuse themselves by knocking loudly on the chimney, driving heavy objects over the celling and opening the door, al though it lias been carefully locked the night before. The horses get loose in the stable and be<ome in jured and the cows can not ba p"t suaded to give down their milk with out the most unheard of difficulties. ALLEGED BOY ABSCONDER GLAD WHEN HE IS CAUGHT NBW YORK, Sept. 26.—"1 am glad to be caught. This business of a good time and that sort of thing is all right for a while, but there is nothing ilke honesty and the comfort* - of a good home." So said Thomas Crawford, 19. of 1399 Herkimer street, Brooklyn, a bank messenger, after he was arrest ed a« an absconder on a houseboat in Jamaica bay. When arraigned on a charge of grand larceny, preferred by Edward Rasp, cashier of the Browns ville branch of the State bank, he was held in $1,000 ball for the grand jury. Crawford was employed by the bank and visited depositors who were unable to go to the bank to make de posits. On the date of i.rs disappear ance, July 19, he collected $789 in cash and $221 in checks. As he overstayed his time, the man ager of the bank became worried and notified the police. It was rumored at the time that holdup men had way laid the messenger and robbed him, but detectives later traced the boy and three companions. SHOES WERE WORN IN EARLY TIMES As covering for the human foot shoes have been worn from the earli est times. The shoes of the Jews were made of wood, rush, linen or leather. The Romans were the first to set the example of costly shoes, and introduced various decorative adornments of Ivory and precious stones. In the middle ages fashion played some fantastic tricks with shoes, and in England, about the mid dle of the fifteenth century, shoes with such long points were worn that they had to be tied to the knees for convenience of walking, the dandies using silver chains for the purpose. It was about 1033 when shoes of the present form Ware in troduced, and in 1668 the buckle came into use as an ornament. THE SAX FRANC m'O CALL, FRIDAY, SEPTEMTBEK 26, 1913.

WIDOW GOAT PROTECTS HARE PAL FROM DOGS ST. LOUIS, Sept. 26 —A strange af finity between a Mrs. Nanny Goat and Mr. Belgian Hare has been the mar ve\ of Luxemburg, St. Louis county, ever since the two pet wolves belong ing to Daniel Finnigan, former peace officer for the German settlement, were slain two months ago. John W. Jaqulth. until recently had a pair of fine Angora goats and sev eral Belgian hares. Mr. Billy Goat became vicious. Ba was disposed of, leaving Nanny in deep mourning. One of the prize rabbits admired her in widow's weeds. In time his affec tions were returned. Since Flnnlga-n's wolves quit fur nishing diversions for the Luxem -0 burg dogs the Belgian hare pen has been closely watched and every time a hare wandered from his own fire side he had to hurry to get under cover. Mr*. Nanny Goat's affinity went for a stroll along the River dcs Peres with her yesterday, but had not gone far when several hounds struck their trail. The hare took refuge under the goat, which successfully defended it until some men noticed the strange situation and chased the dogs away. WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS, WOMAN THINKS BT, PAUL, Sept. 26.—Troubles have accumulated ln uncanny fashion for Mrs. Charles Baker. The last of the series of mishaps came when her 6 year old son.

Charles Baker, father of the family, a steamfitter by trade, took the boy to the hospital, but the next day he disappeared, and has not been heard from since. PERILOUS PIES A doctor saw his little boy making mud pies the the gutter the oUier aft ernoon. Now, mudpie making is one of the classic games of childhood—as honorable and correct as Punch and Judy.

GRACE KNOWS HOW TO GETJER SUIT Follows Advice of Alice and Surprises Her Friends With Fashion's Latest "Hello. Is Alice home? "Oh, is this you, Alice? How are you? I've got the best news for you: you'll be interested to know, I'm sure. "You know what you told me about getting your suit? And you remember I wa3 so worried about my old suit and my not being able to spare the money for a new one? Well, I fol lowed your advice and went to the place you told me of. They were Just lovely to me, and they were so nice about giving me credit. "They have the nicest things in the store I ever saw. There were so many suits that looked swell on me. and their prices were so reasonable that I almost thought I could never make up my mind which one to choose. When I went in I was afraid I couldn't af ford anything extra good, and I was sorry, because I did so want one of the new fall styles; but when I had been in the store 10 minutes I was so excited at the beautiful suits that were offered me at the money I could hardly believe it. "I got one of those new fashions — you know, we were looking at them In the fashion show windows several weeks ago wishing we could have one. You remember, don't you, that particularly beautiful suit we looked at and thought it must be awfully expensive? Well. I found almost the same thing, only a little prettier. I think, and the price was awfully little. When I said I wanted lt the clerk just asked me If she should charge it. and when I said 'I wish you would.' all she said was 'all right ' "We tried it on. fitted it, and then all I had to do was pay a little down —just a few dollars. And I have the longest time to pay the rest in—a little bit every week or month, just as I choose. Wasn't it nice? You did nic h favor when you told me about Cherry's, and their credit plan for all the latest kind of fashionable clothes, and I'm going to tell all my friends about them. Besides their store at 1009 Market street, they have one at 2400 Mission street, and over in Oakland they have a. women's store at r>ir> Thirteenth street, and a man's store at 528 Thirteenth street. I'm going to tell everybody that Cherry's ere,]it. plan solves the high cost of living, as far as clothes are concerned. —Advertisement. WT tTTPQC! (Of Harris & Hess. . A.
