A revised version of the Ten Com
mandments, cut down to nine and
modeled to fit the temptations of to
day, brought back marital bliss for
a while, but the spell failed to hold
for Mr. and Mrs. John Wesley Marks.
When her husband called veal cut
lets "veal stew," their modern Mosaic
law lost its grip and she left him.
So Marks was this morning granted
an interlocutory decree of divorce
from Helen Marks by Judge Graham.
She was unable to live up to Marks'
strong anti-suffragette principles
that caused their first separation.
The "veal stew" was responsible for
the second parting.
Marks presented in evidence his
nine commandments, and said that he
had sent the copy to his wife during a
former separation and that when she
had signed it they had become recon
ciled. The reconciliation, however,
was a failure, and the wife, according
to Marks' testimony, fractured prac

' Ate French Bread in Parlor and "Don" Slept in
Crib —Now She Has Japanese Domestic
With five dogs and three cats that
Insist on using the parlor Turkish rug
for a tablecloth and want their cribs
made up fresh every day, Mrs. Tracy
S. Hardy, well known Oakland society
woman and sister in law of Dr. Sum
ner and Sam Hardy, former famous
tennis stars, has established a record
in rapid .transit of servants.
Her score reads 60 servants in 50
days, with the question now in sus
pense, as she believes the riddle has
been solved by employing a Japa
nese servant, to whom animals are a
Joy and not an annoyance, no matter
how troublesome they may be. All
previous employes resigned because
the pets overran the house.
"Chewey caused most of the
trouble," said Mrs. Hardy, in talking
over her experiences today. "He in
sisted on eating his French bread in
the parlor whenever I had a caller.
It meant that some days the servant
would almost have to follow after the
animal with a dustpan and broom."
The help in the Hardy household
had other troubles. Three of the dogs
occupy separate couches, and "Chew
ey" and 1 "Don" sleep in cribs. The
blankets and pillows needed daily
care and attention, and the servant
problem had many angles at times.
Some flatly refused to make a bed for
a dog and declared that the beasts
should be turned out of the house.
When the dogs fought over which
should have a certain bed for the
i .
Founded -1856
' night and bedclothea were torn and
scattered, there were frequent inter
views between servant and Mrs.
Hardy. The servant ended the talk
by leaving for other employment.
Mrs. Hardy then hired another and
another. Fifty was the limit reached
until she secured her present Japan
ese, who dearly loves all of them.
Mrs. Hardy says that he gives her
dogs and cats the freedom of the
house because she believes that it is
not enough to merely own the ani
mals, put collars on them and see
them once or twice a day.
"One must make a companion of
the pets to realize the full measure
of affection and sympathy a dog can
show," she said.
"Friends one may have for a time,"
she continued, "and in adversity. In
times when one needs most the sym
pathy of a friend who understands,
these friends are not at hand. At
such times we can turn to our pets.
"They have been so intimately a
part of our lives that they understand
our moods and our every desire and
thought at times it seems. Most of
them are waifs, picked up on the
street, because they looked cold or
hungry, or both. 'Chewey' is the ac
knowledged leader and the favorite
both with the other dogs and with
us. He was nailed up In a cracker
box when we found him, ond now
he sits at the table in his high chair,
has his plate, and really, his table
manners are better than those of
some people I have seen."
Frank Lillip, Given Caustio
Which Produces Grave
Complications, Swears
to Complaint 1 *1
Another telling: blow at the clan of
quack specialists preying upon th«
state was delivered by the strong arm
of the state board of medical exam
iners today when a warrant was
sworn out before Judge Shortall by
Frank Lillip charging C A. Baxter of
the Globe Medical company, 773 Mar
ket street, with obtaining money un
der false pretenses.

street office by Detectives Gallatin
and O'Connell and taken to the city
prison at noon. He gave $100 bail im
mediately and was released. He will
be arraigned in Judge Shortall's court
Monday morning.
How the "specialist" keeps a victim
under his evil power, even inflicting
injuries upon him to make him be
lieve he is a victim of a dreadful
disease, will be disclosed at the trial
of Baxter, according to Louis H.
Ward, attorney for the state board of
medical examiners, who will prose
cute the Baxter case.
Since the crusade against quacks
was announced by The Call Wednes
day scores of unfortunate men and
women in San Francisco and in scat
tered sections of the state who have
been picked by the gulls of the medi
cal profession have told of their ex
periences and made affidavits to. state
ments that will be the basis of a score
of suits.
According to Attorney Ward, the
aggressiveness of the state board has
awakened a slumbering thought In
the mind of every citizen in Cali
"It seems as if every man and
woman in the state is. with us in this
fight," he said. "After we clean the
quacks out of San Francisco we will
take the different cities by turn and
fight the good fight there until there
is no enemy."
At the last meeting of the board of
directors of the San Francisco County
Medical society, a resolution was
passed by the unanimous vote of the
board, approving the oampaign of the
board of medical examiners against
quack specialists.
According to the affidavits made b*
Lillip. who is a baker by trade, he was
attracted to the office of the Globe
Medical company by its advertising.
Lillip says Baxter examined him,

needed immediate attention and guar

During several weeks Lillip toos
treatments, but his condition was un.
changed. He spent more money, giv

clinics, where a physician examined
