WILCOX FROM CHURCH ROLL More Trouble Follows Former Pastor of a Church in This City. HIS MARRIAGE IS CAUSE HASTE IN AGAIN SEEKING MATRI MONY AFTER SECURING Dl VORCE WAS A VIOLATION OF CHURCH LAWS. Because of his hasty marriage fol lowing his divorce from Mrs. Elsie Wilcox of this city, the Rev. C. B. Wilcox, formerly of Decatur, Ind., and at one time a pastor in this city has been dropped from the Methodist church rolls. When a pastor in this city the Rev. Mr. Wilcox was con nected with the Fifth Street M. E. church. At that time he was popular in the city and well liked by his par ishoners. Following their marital troubles, while the minister was lo cated at Decatur, his wife removed to this city and makes her home with a relative. Only a short time ago, this paper contained an account of the remarri age of Mr. Wilcox. He now is located at St. Louis. Mich., and married a Decatur woman, who formerly was an active member of the church at taat place. She was a social leader and one of the best known women of the town. She belonged to the church choir. Tenents of Church. The tenents of the Methodist church make divorce illegal for any cause other than adultery. Ministers are forbidden to marry a person who has been divorced for any other reason, if the divorced husband or wife is living. The law does not apply to the innocent party to a divorce for the cause stated nor to divorced parties seeking to be reunited. It was to comply with this feature of church law, that the Rev. Wilcox was unchurched. The statutory cause did not enter into his case, so the church would not recognize the di vorce. Wilcox can not continue in the ministry of the Methodist church. Mrs. Wilcox has been made the re cipient of a letter from the official board of the Decatur church. In it confidence is expressed in her and she is praised for character and excellent work while connected with the church. Ar,,. v. -1...JI table.

Although Adolph Wollschlager paid his wife all the attentions aforementioned and more, she declared in West Side court that she did not wish to live with him, and, although her spouse pleaded with her to relent, 6he spurn ed him. "It is enough what I say. You no longer do I love," she declared, and she flouted out of court when Magis trate O'Connor dismissed her com plaint against her husband for break ing into her room at 103 West Sixty Eighth street, saber in hand, to take her heart by storm.

SHE FINDS III A SHIRT WAIST Brooklyn Woman Pays 98 Cents and Gets Sure Enough Bargain. POLICE LOOKING FOR HER MRS. ANNA W ASS ER MANN, SHOP KEEPER, SELLS GARMENT AND BY MISTAKE WRAPS UP WITH IT HER BANK ROLL. New York, Aug. 9. One good thing about a shirt waist that a young wo man bought for ninety-eight cents in Mrs. Anna Wassermann's dry goods store, No. 179 Grand street, Brook lyn, yesterday, was $595 that was wrapped up in it. Shirt waists, as Mrs. Wassermann herself said last night, do not come that way this season as a general rule, and the young woman who paid the ninety-eight cents seems to be well pleased with her exceptionable bargain. She has not been back for alterations or an exchange, and last night Mrs. Wassermann became con vinced that to continue to expect that she would come back was to place an unjustifiable strain on hope, she ask ed Captain Booley of the Bedford av enue station to try to find the young woman. She Had a Sale. Mrs. Wassermann had a sale of shirt waists yesterday and she offered some really remarkable bargains. Among them was ?. china silk waist worjh $2.25 of anybody's money, but for one day only marked down to ninety-eight cents." A young, woman who was a stranger in the store ap peared yesterday afternoon and fell In love with the ninety-eight cent bar gain at once. When Mrs. Wassermann wrapped It up she wrapped up with it $595 that she had placed on the counter prepara tory to placing it in a bank. She fears that the bargain hunting young wom an has placed it in a bank herself by this time. Shirt waists, the regular value of which is $2.25, bear such a family re semblance to one another tiat the policemen who are looking for the $595 It was while he was serving as a bulwark to the Kaiser, he said, that ne met his wife. The red and gold uniform and the clanking saber won her heart, and when he said: "Will you wed? she replied: I will. They came to America and on Stat- en Island they began housekeeping, and there he opened a plumbing shop, Soon, however, she became dissatis- fied and they moved to 330 West Twenty-First street whence she fledl one day last May, saying she was go- j ing to Boston and start a boarding house. As he got no reply to his let- ters, Adolph went a-sleuthing, and found her finally at 103 West Sixty-1 Eighth street. Then, donning his regimentals and I boarding a hansom cab. he called at 1 the house and tapped joyously on her door. "Who is it?" came the familiar voice within. "It is I, your Adolph: he is here," replied the Kriegerbunder, but there was no answer from within. His pleadings spurned, Adolph drew his saber and with a few well chos en slaches cut the panel from the door. Mrs. Wollschlager fled to the fire escape and her screams attracted a crowd, and as Adolph dashed out of the house he was captured by a police man. one in which the $595 went home think they have a difficult task. One of the shrewdest of the seekers said last night that be considered it within the realm of possibility that when the young woman reached 'her home and found that for her ninety- eight cents she had bought not only a good shirt waist, but $595 besides; she had gone forthwith and bought sev- eral expensive waists, in any of which she might now be giving the towns- people a treat.

RACE WILL BE BRUNETTES ARMY SURGEON FINOS MAJORITY OF CRIMINALS AND PAUPERS ARE LIGHT HAIRED HARDEST DRINKERS, ALSO. New York, Aug. 0. A startling note of warning to blue-eyed, light com- plexloned New Yorkers is uttered by Dr. Charles E. Woodruff, surgeon and major in the United States army, who has just completed a private tour of the prisons and asylums of the city and state. The jails and Institutions. he says are full of blondes, who. un able to stand the struggle for existence In a climate to which they are unfitted have fallen into poverty, disease and crime. What is true of New York, he says. is true of the country as a whole, and unless the blonde American finds or adopts some better means of survival than he has at present he will be wiped out as a type in favor of the bru nette. The great trouble is the sunshine. There is too much of it In America for the blondes, says Dr. Woodruff. It breaks down their nervous systems. renders them unstable morally as well as physically, and makes them pecu liarly liable to ravages of consump tion and other deadly ailments. Prison Full of Blondes. In Clinton prison, says Dr. Woodruff, where the worst class of criminals are confined, and where he expected to find the place full of modern Mack- heads he was astonished at the very Uree number of blondes, some of them l ' of very light type. of the 2S3 convicts whose hair wu available for comparison, there were nineteen with very light hair, sixty- one with light brown, sixty-one with dark brown and 112 with black. of nearly 5.n men whose average age was 21, admitted to the Elmira re formatory Dr. Woodruff found the types classified themselves as follows as to their hair: Blonde SIS; red 00 sand v 103: light brown 1.2U3; dark brown 1,440; black 1.4O0. Of the 002 aged paupers on Black' well's island, says Dr. Woodruff, only one-fourth are native born. Drink has broken most of them down, and from this Dr. Woodruff argues that the un I derlying nervous cause of alcoholism is far more prevalent in blondes than in brunettes in New York city, Blames Light for Alcoholism. The thirst for alcohol, Dr. Woodruf says, is merely the expression of a ner vous weakness acquired under Amer ica's sunny skies, and resulting from excessive stimulation of light as one of a thousand causes Of ninety paupers in Boston instltu tions. Dr. Woodruff says he found the same general trend In a city markedly more blonde than New York Thus, he says, unfavorable climatic factors are causing unfitness for sur vival the race types in America too far misplaced from their ancestral I climatic conditions. This process of elimination among human beings, he says, differs in no small degree from that which goes on among Irrigated plants and lower animals. The native born, he says furnish the great majority of the blue-eyed pro- fessional criminals in New York. In Clinton prison 82 per cent of the tuber culosis criminals are native born Amusements Barnum A. Bailey Shows. The only African black face mandrill in the show business has cast his lot with the Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth. Its make up embraces all the colors of the rainbow. When it prances around its cage displaying its various hues it reminds one of la Sunday supplement, iney nave named it Joseph's coat. Another favorite In the menagerie is Agnes, a sweet little hippopotamus, as big as hen house and too lazy to scratch its own back. For novelty, there is the only rhinocerous in Am erica, three old specimens of the gir affe tall enough to eat the house plants from a second story window box. South African wart hogs, baby tigers and a young polar bear. The menagerie is a complete tool- ogical garden, embracing everything in the animal kingdom of Interest. There are nearl all the elephants in America on exhibition and great herds of camels and dromedaries. In the way of trained animal acts the show is remarkably attractive. There are fifteen trained elephants that present a performance entirely new and by all means the most won derful ever presented. Then there are a company of imported horses from Berlin that do a marvelous act. train ed dogs, ponies, mules and seals. The many other performers, equili brists acrobats. aerialists. riders, clowns and gymnasts, are largely from Europe and Asia, picked from foreign arenas because or their excel lence in the various forms of circus entertainment. With these splendid acts, a company of European perform ers, the balloon horse, the daring act of Desperado, a new parade and an other new and ornate spectacle to re commend it. the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth is meeting this season with more success than during any season in its proud history.

Kissing Customs. In ancient Egypt It was considered a high degree of politeness to kias one's hand and then place It on the top of the bead. Men of rank occsslonslly kissed each other, bat In the land of the pharaohs men never' dreamed of kissing women. They were very careful of kisses la Borne. If a slave kissed a free wo man there he was liable to be torn to pieces by wild horses. The great Cato promulgated a law making the kissing of parents before their children a punishable offense. The Greeks put to death any man who kissed a woman or girl la the public street. In Austria today a man only kiasea a woman's band.
