"Mi, Mi, OH UN"
SAYS DOLEFUL VOICE
J. T. Pickett, Erstwhile Local
Man, Hears Ghost-like
SEARCH IS FUTILE
Insurance Leader Has Record
As Journalist Teacher and
Cavalryman in the Boer War
J. T. Pickett, formerly of this city,
but now a resident of Irvington, was
recently mixed up in a sensational
Pickett, who rooms in an Irvington
home, was recently dragged from his
room by a carpenter working next door
and commanded in a shaking voice to
accompany him forthwith to the rear
of the house to listen to certain mys
"There is some fellow out there
who must want to see you," explained
the carpenter. They stopped in the
back yard near the house, and in a
few moments hollow tones came to
them, apparently from the ground be
neath their feet.
"Man, man, oh. man!" said the dole
"Hey!" said Pickett, turning his ear
to the ground.
"Man, man, oh, man!" again came
the tomblike intonations.
'Twai Dark and Stormy.
Together the two men explored the
house, the roof, the cellar, looked un
der the porches and returned to their
original stopping place just in time to
hear the mysterious voice again utter
its hear-rending lamentation.
"Good Night" .said the private in
vestigators as they rushed from the
neighborhood to look for a policeman.
There was none to be found which is
nothing new in Irvington, so a call
was sent in to police headquarters.
A motorcop who soon arrived in an
iwer to the call wore an air of gener
al incredulity, after the manner of
cops in general when they have been
told something that they haven't
"Man, Man, Oh Man!"
"Cop" Rather Timid.
Followed by a murmuring crowd,
the policeman made a searching inves
tigation of the premises. He looked
Into the cistern, turned his eleotric
light Into the dark recesses of the
basement, and assisted by Pickett,
took a davenport apart. Then highly
chagrined and discomfited he went
back to police headquarters.
That was two weeks ago. The mys
terious voice has not been heard
since. Pickett is still rooming at the
house of mystery but says that he is
going to move as soon as the myster
ious voice resumes Hb monologue.
H. H. Hadlow, superintendent and
Agent W. S. Osborn, of the Rich
mond district of the Public Savings
Insurance company, were guests at
a banquet given by the company at
Indianapolis in honor of the winners
of a contest for increase of business
extending over a period of twenty-six
weeks. Richmond had the honor of
finishing second for joint increase in
the ordinary and industrial branches
combined, and led the entire state for
amount of ordinary insurance written.
Agent Osborn led the entire fctate
both in industrial and ordinary writ
ings and also for percentage of collec
tions. At the banquet Superintendent
Hadlow was presented with a suit case
and Agent Osborn a gold mounted
umbrella suitably inscribed. Mr. Had

ence in England, and rose to the po
sition of Divisional Inspector in charge
of four counties for one of the lead
ing old line companies in that coun
try. He controlled 373 superintend
ents and agents. He also won many
awards for his contributions on insur
ance matters to the various Insurance
Medals For Bravery.
Mr. Hadlow was a school teacher
In his earlier days and later took up
journalism. He volunteered for serv
ice during the Boer war of 1899-1902
and fought with the 33rd Company Im
perial Yeomanry Cavalry gaining the
South Africa medal and four clasps.
In one engagement he had his horse
shot from under him and .narrowly
escaped being taken prisoner. Enter
ing the insurance profession in No

An Easy Way to Get

who wish to gain weight is that they
Insist on drugging their - stomach or

Dn useless "flesh creams," or follow

while the real cause of thinness goes
untouched. You can not get fat until
your digestive tract assimilates the
food you eat.
Thanks to the remarkable new sci
entific discovery, it is now possible to
combine into simple form the very
elements needed by the digestive or
gans to help them convert food Into

stroke of modern chemistry is called
Sargol and has been termed the great

through its regenerative, reconstruc

them into the blood, where they are

If woman's beauty depended upon
cosmetics, every woman would be a
picture of loveliness. But beauty lies
deeper than that. It lies in health. In
the majority of cases the basis of
health, and the cause of sickness, can
be traced to the action of the bowels.
The headaches, the lassitude, the
sallow skin and the lusterless eyes
are usually due to constipation. So
jmany things that women do habitual
ly conduce to this trouble. They do
not eat carefully, they eat indigestible
foods because the foods are served
daintily and they do not exercise
enough. But whatever the particular
cause may be it is important that the
condition should be corrected.
An ideal remedy for women, and
one especially suited to their delicate
requirements, is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin, which thousands of women en
dorse highly, among them Mrs. C. S.
Vance, of 511 S. Ray St., New Castle,
Pa. At times she had spells of in

she would die. Syrup Pepsin regu

attributes her excellent health today
to this remedy.
