CAUSED HIS TROUBLES Locked Out Minister Promises Disclosures in Court; Coast News WOODLAND, Nov. 6.—Blaming the Rev. Bishop W. EL Moreland of the Sacramento Episcopal diocese for the controversy and the three complaints lodged against him Monday by the vestry, the Rev. Edward John Baird returned from San Francisco last night to find the doors of St. Luke's Episcopal church locked against him. Rev. Mr. Baird in his statement places the entire blame on Bishop Moreland for the differences between him and his congregation. His oppo sition to Bishop Moreland's request for an increase of $500 in lils income, he says, is responsible for the present situation. Baird says that he will shift the ac tion to the state courts. He promises sensational disclosures. The suits lodged against Baird are an injunction to prevent him from using St. Luke's property for re ligious services, for the ejectment of the rector from the church property and the return of various church prop erty which, it is alleged, Is in Baird's possession. .It KY RETURN'S VERDICT M< >T'XTAIX VIEW.

Actress Goes Shopping and Her Cooing Comments Win Hearts of Store Folks Anna Held went shopping yester day and if her remarks might be coyprighted and set forth with due publicity, the proprietors of the shops woujd require no other advertising matter for tne year. "Tou have such wonderful shops here, so wonderful, 00-00-ooh," and that marvelous Anna Held cooing tone gave ons of the most fascinating demonstrations. Volumes—almost—have been writ ten about the fair Anna's eyes and their effective modes of procedure, when expatiating upon her assets, but fail to exploit that coo. That little "00-00-ooh" which is so irre sistible. It keeps one guessing, as to whether it is out adapting itself gracefully to nature, or nature ful filling the highest demands of art. AVXA WINS SHOP FOLK In any case it is one of the best things that any living woman does; you realize that as soon as you hear her do it. It won the hearts of all the folks in all the shops. Such gracious approbation for the sales women and masculine ushers, such graceful compliments for the managers, directors and proprietors ' who drew near when the word went through the house that Miss Held had come a-shopp!ng. Before the tour was fairly begun, she had explained seriously that It was a distinct pleasure to her to be able to say, conscientiously and honestly, that she loved the shops here. SHE LOOKS AT GOWNS Then she looked at gowns. Import ed affairs of wonderful construction. "See now, are they not funny, so quaint, very good, very good? Oh, that one I like,' - and she pointed out a gown of red velvet and white satin. "Is it one piece?" asked Miss Held, "yets, yes, it is. It seems a Jacket but you are deceived. They say 'take off your jacket' and you say, 'not Just now, thank you," because 1 you really cannot." Then there was a white satin even ing gown that had a very long slim train in the back hut the slit in front was of a slitness the like of which we have not seen here before. Paris sent it to us. but It brought an ex clamation from the Parisian Anna as she faced it on a wax model. Below the knees there seemed to he nothing to obstruct the view at all, because It was draped away like an early Victorian lambrequin. WHY BE ASHAMED OF ITf "Look, look," said Miss Held, "well, now I had better not say what I really think about that?" and she laughed delightedly at her thoughts, whatever they were. Some one explained that diamond studded silk stockings should he worn with It. "It seems to say to me," commented Anna finally, "why be ashamed of what you have to show?" feel cold and go to sleep, because BAALMAXN'S" (JAR - TABLETS pre vent gas Interfering with the circula tion; that intense drowsiness and sleepy feeling after dinner will soon be replaced by a desire for some form of entertainment.

SURE U TO END RHEUMATISM Ease Stiff, Sore Joints and Muscles; Makes Pains and Backache Promptly Vanish "Most al! rheumatism is due to one cause—weak kidneys," says a noted authority. The kidneys become clogged up, sluggish and filter or strain out only a part of the poison ous waste matter and uric acid, all the rest remains In the blood and circu lates through the system, where it lodges in the Joints and muscles, and causes all the trouble. The only way to overcome this is to make your kidneys work properly. You can easily and Rurely do this by taking a little Croxone, which never fails to act promptly. Croxone not only cleans out the clogged up kidneys, strengthens them and makes them active, but It neutral izes and dissolves the poisonous waste substances and uric acid, that scratch and irritate and cause rheumatism, so the kidneys can filter It from the blood and drive it out of the system. Croxone is believed to be tbe most remarkable preparation ever known for the prompt relief and cure of rheumatism, kidney troubles and blad der disorders. It is entirely different from other remedies. It is so pre pared that it is practically impossible to take it without results. Relief fol lows the first few doses, and you will be surprised how quickly stiff, sore, swollen joints and muscles, rheumatic pains, and all such misery ends. An original package of Croxone costs but a trifle, and every druggist recommends aiwi sells it on a positive money back guarantee. Three doses a day for a few days is often all that is ever needed to overcome the worst backache or most annoying urinary disorders. —Advertisement Ellwood Cooper, 84, Wed in Chicago To Denver Woman, 60 CHICAGO.

Prosperous Business is good, and if any mer chants have complaint that it is not, the fault is not with business condi tions, but with personal conditions of the merchant, said J. P. Burke, the well known merchandise expert of the east and northwest, who returned to San Francisco after many years' ab sence. "I personally can see nothing but the best in San Francisco's future," said Mr. Burke today, "and you can say for me, although a native son, I have spent more than half my life in the east and northwest, so I am speak ing from a cold business view. "Although I have heard a few com plaints since arriving here from busi ness men that business was a little slow, I believe in such cases that it is entirely the fault of the business man himself. In many cases in cities of this size the business man allows him self to get rusty, allowing the young er generation to step in with more wideawake and live ideas and take a portion of his business away. "A business is a great deal like the human system. If there is a falling off in your business there is always some reason, just the same as when you are sick. The first thing you would do about your health would be. to call a physician, that is, after try ing all the home remedies that you could think of. Well, it is the same way with your business. "I say to the merchant who com plains that there is something the matter with his business and the sooner he finds out what it is the quicker he can remedy it. He can not remedy it by knocking the town, that's a cinch. So 1 say to the knocker and pessimist, brush up on the busi ness methods of today and you can wear the smile your next door neigh bor does."

NEW DANCES STUDIED; What Local Thinkers j X Say of Modern Steps WHILE the society women of the exclusive Ebell club of Oakland are dissecting the tango and kindred dances from a wholly esthetic point of view their brothers of the famous Commonwealth club of San Francisco have a committee at work studying the vogue in dancing to de termine how much of the modern step is responsible for vice and how to provide means to furnish wholesome dancing for the public in regulated places. Across the bay the clubwomen are waiting for the afternoon of No vember 11, when Mr .and Mrs. Douglas Crane will interpret the dances for club members only at the clubhouse. Members of the club express varied opinions as to the value ot the novel- HOPE TO SETTLE QUESTION The Commonwealth club members are wondering whether or not there is any merit in the reports that the new dances are sensuous and deadening to fine morals, have the foundation of a rigid investigation laid and hope to settle the question by opening public schools to neighborhood dances where only the steps that work for grace and elegance will be allowed. Following are interviews with sev eral men who are members of the Commonwealth club and several women who are members of the Ebell club: Mrs. Thomas P. Hogan —I think that the tango and the other dances that are causing so much comment now adays are merely passing fads and Will go their way without doing any one either a great deal of good or much harm. I feel that they are graceful exercises and a welcome relaxation from the rigors of formal affairs. 1 can see nothing immoral in them and believe that under proper chaperonage there is no harm in them for young or old. "A DANCE IS A DANCE" Judge A. E. Graupner —The investiga tion is being conducted with the view of .Impressing the public with the necessity for places where wholesome dancing may be in dulged in by the young people. We hope to show that public dancing as now conducted could be im proved through different means. There are two things that could grow out of this—the throwing open of the public schools for neighborhood dancing and the es tablishment of public dance halls by the city. The kind of dancing would cut no figure. A dance is a dance. Any kind can be made vul gar There would be no ban on the kind of dance to be held in the schoolhouses. It could be the tango, the turkey trot or any kind of "ragging" so long as there was no vulgarity. LOOKS FOR THE BEAITIFIL Mrs. J. S. Emery, one of the host esses at the exhibition danee —I have never seen the dances, and therefore do not feel qualified to express an opinion. However, 1 GUARANTY CO, GETS CERTIFICATE Is First in State to Be Permit ted to Do Mortgage Insur ance Business Forecasting- a practical revolution in the method of business involving mortgage guarantees, the 'first cer tificate for the transaction of mort gage insurance business in the state ever granted has been issued by In surance Commissioner Cooper to the Western Mortgage and Guaranty company. In granting the certificate Commis sioner Cooper reported: "The safety of the investment, the rate of interest paid and the entire freedom from care on the part of the investor should make these mortgage certificates a very attractive form of investment for either the large or small Investor." This law places the company under the insurance law of the state and imposes the most drastic restrictions and qualifications before the issuance of a certificate of authority. shall be there, and I look for some thing graceful, rythmic and beau tiful, as I have been told that the dances as danced by Mr. and Mrs. Crane are all of these. SCHOOLHOUSES FOR DANCES Jam ex Edward Rogers—There is a need for more places where whole some dancing may be held. If the public can be brought to see the necessity of throwing the school houses open to dancing, where the young folks may go with their parents and the grown up children, the Commonwealth club will have done a good work. Dancing under proper supervision may include any mode the times bring out. Dancing is what the dancers make It oftentimes. Under present conditions the environments cause this popular recreation to sink sometimes. We would have no ban on the tango or kindred dances in the schools or the mu nicipally owned dance hall. They would be properly supervised, and any effort to turn a dance into a disgusting revel could be instantly stopped. "OLD FASHIONED BELIEFS" Mrs. Francis Ferrler, wife of the for mer mayor of Berkeley—l have not seen these dances and know noth ing of them. I am afraid I would not want to express'an opinion, as I am rather old fashioned in my beliefs in regard to the dances of the present time. PROHIBIT LIQUOR E. A. Wolcott —We want places where dancing can be conducted in a clean manner. The kind of dancing would cut no figure. While this is no campaign against the dance hall evil as it exists in some parts of the city, it is probable that a sug gestion will be included in the re port of the committee asking that liquor be prohibited where public dances are given. TANGO NOT A RAG Mrs. J. R. Farrell —I do not consider that the tango is a "rag" dance. My daughter has been attending some of the classes in the latest steps, and while I have not seen them, I understand that they are very graceful, picturesque and delightful. I can see nothing about them to voice disapproval. ARREST AGENT FOR PECULATING $800 Alfred Frontier Charged by Abrahamson BrotherslVith Keeping Rent Money Alfred Frontier, agent for Forester hall.

Many Diseases of Animals! and Plants May Be Pre- I vented as Result I The college of agriculture of the University of California has com menced investigations under the" so called Adams fund, which in economic importance are hardly equaled in any other state of the union. In three fields, covering virtually the whole of rural production, this scientific work is to be conducted during the year 1914. Two divisions of the work will be preventive. These are in animal hus bandry and in plant growth. Dis eases of domestic animals are being studied by Dr. C. M. Haring, profes sor of veterinary surgery; by Dr. C. D. Roadhouse, assistant professor of veterinary surgery, and by Ralph Bell. These experiments will include studies to discover a means of im munizing calves to tuberculosis. TO ELIMINATE TUBERCULOSIS The purpose is to eliminate, if pos sible, bovine tuberculosis by rearing a breed of cattle immune to the dis ease, this quality of natural resist ance to be fostered so as to become transmitted to offspring. Not less important will be experi ments to solve the tuberculosis prob lem in swine, as well as cattle. The intradermal test, tried in other experi ments elswhere, will be fully tested here. In plant growths, R. H. Smith, pro fessor of plant pathology, and W. T. Home, assistant professor in the same department, will make investigations 1 of environment In causing plant dis eases and unhealthy plant condition* which have become important eco nomic matters in California. In the question of soil fertility. In vestigations will be held by C. B. Lipman, professor of soil chemistry and bacteriology; by L. T. Sharp, as sistant professor of the same sub jects; by P. S. Burgess, instructor in soil bacteriology, and by W. F. Cle ncke. instructor in soil chemls'.ry. These savants will study the effect of alkali on plants and methods of counteracting its hurtful influence; the relation of soil bacteria to fer tility; effects of irrigation on Impe rial valley agriculture, and so on. SMELTER WASTE STUDY Of high importance will be the in vestigation of the effect of salts of the heavy metals, known to be poi sonous, on plant life, such as copper, zinc and lead. This will be practical work connected with smelter wastes. Frof C. W. Woodworth and Prof. H. J. Quayle of the department of entomology will study insecticides and insect parasites as regards agri culture. In practical or applied botany Prof. W. A. Setchell will continue experi ments in hybridization of tobacco, a special problem to which he has al ready devoted several years. PORTUGUESE TANGO AT BAUER RECITAL Harold Bauer will give his second concert at Scottish Rite auditorium tonight. The program will include the Italian concerto of Bach. Schu mann's delightful "Faschingschwank." a group of Chopin gems, the Wagner- Liszt "Llebestod" and the prelude chorale and fugue of Cesar Franck.
