“Money and Morals”
In the long ago when that giant of Southern Jour
nalism was in the land of the living Marse Henry
Water son had a favorite lecture. He gave it the cap
tion, “Money and Morals”
Mrs. Alexander Pantages of Los Angeles Indicted
and tried for killing a Japanese gardener in an auto
mobile collision was found guilty by a Jury with a
term of from 1 to 20 years in a state penitentiary as
the penalty prescribed by law.
Now Alexander Pantages, the husband, has been
found guilty of criminal assault on a girl and he Is
lacing a term of from 1 to 50 years with a Jury rec
ommendation of mercy. Alexander Pantages sold his
vaudeville string of playhouses for $15,000,000 within
the year. He is said to be worth $25,000,000.
Now the father and mother realize that the gates
of the pen are wide open and the three sons and
a daughter will be left custodians of the Pantages
millions. Which has the greater intrinsic value
money or morals
Ask the Pantages. Ask Albert B Pall. Ask Harry
Sinclair. Ask the condemned murderers and hijackers
the country over. There is a road called “straight.”
It pays, for selfish reasons alone, to walk the road.
Calhoun On the Job
Attorney Gen. Robert Lee Bobbitt has sent Asst. Gen.
Galloway Calhoun to San Antonio to take up the in
vestigation of the murder of Capt. Charles Stevens,
prohibition agent.
Atty. Gen. Bobbitt says he has information, from
Other sections of the state which confirmed the report
submitted by the grand jury as to the existence of a
bootleg ring of wide ramification. His information he
says “indicates very strongly that there is a bootleg
ring operating in Texas which is a disgrace to the good
citizens of the state, and a direct challenge to the in
tegrity of our government.
In his letter to Judge McCrory, the attorney general
made this declaration: “I am satisfied that the offi
cers and citizens of Bexar county can care for their
own affairs, and I have sent Calhoun to you with the
request that he give you every cooperation and help
which you and the grand Jury desire.” Law enforce
ment is said to be the duty of the hour. Copy making
for the newspapers and the public is a demand of the
Jail Sentence For Fall
Albert B. Fall was given a jail sentence of a year
and a fine of $100,000 was imposed. He is 68. He has
landed in the deepest ditch of social degradation.
He has been a supreme court Judge of New Mexico,
he had been a United States senator for three terms.
He had been a cabinet officer In the Harding admin
He was convicted of accepting a bribe of $100,000
from Edward L. Doheny for the transfer of naval oil
leases, the first cabinet officer in American history
to be branded as a felon and ordered to do time behind
the bars by a Jury of his countrymen.
Now Edward L. Doheny will go to trial in the near
future for having bribed this American statesman who

Rosalie March, seventeen, secures
a position at the hosiery counter ol
a store through the kindness of
Kcnessa Du Barry, an actress. She
is adored by her landlady. Mother
Murphy, and little Tim O Hara the
corner newsie. Rosalie discovers a
“run" in her only pair of silk stock
ings. She wears an old cotton pair
to the store, much to the amusement
of the salesgirls. In desperation
she decides to take a silk pair from
stock and make good for them pay
day. She drops them and is ob
served by Alberto Martino, the store
detective, who does not arrest her,
but makes her promise to hide some
suitcases in her room. Rosalie is
frightened, but agrees. Roy Clarke
Andrews, nephew of the store own
er, has several dates with Rosalie,
and falls in love with Rosalie and
asks her to marry him. Rosalie is
called to the phone. Rosalie and
Roy are tricked to a flying field,
where Roy is kidnaped.
“No. That all depends on you,
Angel Face,” the woman told her
then. It was the same thing Ann
Schultz had called her. Had Ann
betrayed her? Was she in on it? It
seemed so impossible. Then the
woman told her she herself had
faked the phone call.
Rosalie fought for self-control and
weakly lay back on the couch.
“Please tell me what do you want
me to do. I’ll—I'll do anything in
the world.”
“What you are to do, baby, is easy
as failin’ out of an airplane,” the
man twirled the little gun in his
hand. You just go home and keep
your mouth shut and go back to
the store tomorrow and say nothin’.
As long as you keep outa our busi
ness and mind yours you ain’t got
a care in the world.”
“But Roy; what about him?
Please tell me what they are going
to do with him?” she beeged them
“They won’t do nothing” the wo
man assured her, “If you do as we
tell you. They're just takin' him
away for a little jack.”
“Oh, Dell—now wrhy lie? Let’s
tell her the truth. They tcoh the
kid out to bump him off because he
knowed too much. They's no use
in both of you dyin*; you can’t help
nobody by gettin’ yourself killed.
They's plenty of other rich guys.
Phillie Is full of them.”
Rosalie began to sob then—wildly
Roy w’as beyond all help. She
felt certain Martino would not dare
let him live after all of this. Life
would scarcely be worth living with- j
out him. But she was young and
death seemed a dreadful, unbeliev- j
able thing.
When Rosalie opened her eyes she
was lying on a couch in a cob
webby little shack. She could not
scream for the gag was till in her
Shf sat up, ghostly white in the
dim light and saw that a strange
man and woman sat beside her.
Her hands and feet had been un
tied and she tore at the rag over
her mouth.
The woman leaned over with a
cruel, twisted smile.
"Don't be in such a hurry, girl.
What we wanta know first is are
you ready to talk turkey?”
Rosalie nodded her head weakly
In assent.
“Want to live a little while, dar
ling?” The woman, too. was dark
and foreign looking and her eyes
looked sunken and mysterious in the
eerie light.
She sobbed aroaeniy ror a rew
minutes and they sa: and waited.
When she sat up weakly and wiped
her eyes—exhausted—the two felt
they had won. The kid was too
far gone with fright to open her
mouth. They were safe.
"Calm yourself, dearie, and get
the red out of your eyes.” the woman
said as unconcerned as though she;
had been witnessing such scenes all
her life. "We can t take you baek;
to the street car line with your face i
red as a boiled beet.”
So—they were going to take her
to the street car alone. How she
was going to go on from day to day
with her burden hanging over her
was a problem she had already be
»run to go over In her tortued mind.
Back to the store Back where she
had seen Roy every day with his
dear grin and laughing gray eyes—
and the little wrinkle at the corner
of his dear mouth.
Tears of helplessness gathered in
her eves. She was cornered. There
was no f°r her to get out now
"Gawd sakes. don’t start to blub
ber again.” the voice of the woman
struck Rosalie - ears with a rasp
ing imnatience. "We can’t stay here
all night.”
Rosalie stood un and swaved. Tho
man nulled a flask from his pocket
and put it to her lips.
"Here girlie, take a drag at this."
It was whiskey. She shook her
hed when she smelled it.
“It ain't bootleg. I ain't goin' to
notson you ” he laughed then,
"come on. itH put vou on your feet.”
"But I’ve never touched a dron of
it in nv life.’* Rosalie burst out at
him then, as though in protest, that
he should Assume her so reckless.
He said his evebrows in a Ques
tion and turned to his partner in
•We ouehta turn her over to a
mnseuxn. Dell.”
"Oh. lets get the baby home to
her crib.” she laughed, cynically.
"She'll start in savin’ her pm vers
in a minute and have us bustin’
out cryin’.”
With a final warning they took
Rosalie nodded again. It was the
man who spoke then.
“We could bump you off here and
nobody’d ever be the wiser; get me?”
They knew from the look of terror
in Rosalie’s eyes that she would
agree to almost anything. The wo
man leaned over and unfastened the
gag. Rosalie gasped for her breath
and they sat waiting for her to
sneak first.
Her mouth twisted in hatred.
Both the man and woman laughed
at the change that came Over her
young, sweet face.
Her fists clinched.
“What have you done with Roy
The faces of her captors changed
at that and they both bent toward
her threateningly. The man toyed
with a small gun in his hand.
"That's what you gotta forget,
one word outa you and you’re gone.
just like he is."
"I don't care! I don't cure!”
Rosalie screamed it at them, and
the woman slapped her mouth with
a pair of gloves $he held in her
hands. She was dressed to the last
degree of fashion in gray.
“Not so loud, you damn little
Rosalie realized, even in her help
lessness and terror, that there was
no use antagonizing them further.
She would tell them anything to
get away. Maybe if they did let
her go she could help Roy. She
said meekly, then;
“Please tell me what you want me
to do. I—don’t want to be killed.”
The man shrugged and sat back.
"All set then to talk biz? Don’t
want to go for a nice ride in a skv
buggy like your sweetie, do you?”
Tears came in her eyes then. It
was impossible that half an hour
before she had been in his arms and
they had made such sweet plans for
their happiness.
Her lips trembled.
"Have—they killed Roy?

C. S. Senator from New York.
FROM the time it was discovered that germs cause many diseases,
every effort has been made to find a means of killing them
This was not difficult, but how to get rid of the germs with
out damaging the tissues of the body, was an entirely different matter.
We have a few notable examples of what can .. jg-.
bo accomplished in this direction. The treat- ^t
naent of malaria is one such. \
Malaria and its exhausting symptoms can oe
traced to the presence in the blood of certain
microscopical organisms. Quinine, a chemical
product of cinchona bark, is capable of killing
these parasites. It is true that cjuinine can de
stroy the cells of the body, too, but its appetite
is better satisfied by the germs of malaria. It
is like several other chemicals—it has selective
powers and will feed upon one sort of living
tissue in preference to another. So the quinine
attacks and kills the germs of malaria, leaving
the human cells undamaged.
Remarkable progress is being made in the
j escape from and control of blood poisoning. The
uncomfortable and possibly serious condition is
due to infection with one or more of the pus
producing germs. OR COPELAND
