Secret Processes and Ingenious
Frauds Make Pictures for Million
aire Market
PARIS Dec 29Secret processes
and ingenious frauds are used by cer
tain socalled reputable picture
dealers in Europe to manufacture
spurious old masters for the Amer
lean millionaire market according to
Henry W Pike an American picture
The frauds which are almost im
possible to detect involve not only the
paintings themselves but the inven
tion of interesting stories to a com
pany the masterpieces to excite the
imagination of the clients and the
printing of Inc similes of ancient
sale cataolgues with descriptions of
the spurious pictures inserted
I can well believe the assertion of
the artist Win Chase said Mr Pike
that there are 50000 spurious Corot
in America The AulbyHamilton
Paine scandal is only one of hundreds
which might arise if other wealthy
Americans engaged experts to inspect
their private galleries So long as
they demand masters the dealers will
provide them
It requires only six months to pro
duce a painting which it is impos
sible for any one except a deep stu
dent of classic art to distinguish from
one that is genuine

Faces Cameras Calmly Knowing That I
He Had Swallowed a Dose of a 1
Deadly Drug
NEW YORK Dec 31rith his
head erect shoulders squared and
eyes leveled a the battery of cameras
trained on him Joseph G Robin the
indicted banker stepped from his sis
ters home Friday moiuring to face ar
raignment calm in theknowledge Ethis t
he had swallowed dose of l oscine
the subtle and deadly alkaloid with
which Dr Crippcn killed his wife
Belle Elmore He collapsed before he
could be taken into court with the ex
clamation <
Im a dead man Ive taken poison
The case was postponed in the
greatest excitement a stomach pump
Vas hurriedly brought into play and
the sick man was carried first to the
prison hospital adjacent and later tc
Bellevue where he lies in the prison
ward No charge of attempted suicide
is entered against him and it is
thought he will recvoer although the
action of hyosciene is slow and mud
will depend on his vitalityI
The time at which Robin took the
drug is approximately fixed by th <
testimony of Dr Austin Flint retain
ed for Robin by Wm Travers Jerome
his counsel Dr Louise Rdbinovitch
his sister and the two detectives from
the district attorneys office who rod
with him from his sister house to tin
criminal court building Di Flint
told the court that as nearly as lit I
can judge from the symptoms the poi
son had been in Rofohis system about
threequarters of an hour when lit
collapsed The two detectives were positive
their prisoner swallowed nothing on
I the way to court Dr RobinoviUsb
said her brother was in the habit of I
taking hyosciene in small doses to
counteract the effects of morphine
which he used to deaden the stabbing
pains by which gall stones make them
selves known
She kept the drug in iher house and
she thought her brother swallowed 12
tablets At Bellevue hospital exam
ining surgeons estimated that Robin
had taken about onetenth of a grain
Robin seemed in good health Fri
day morning better than at any time
since his troubles came upon him and
he made no effort to screen fais face
from the cameras as hitherto The
first sign of illness was when he stag
gered in stepping from his automobile
to the criminal court building
In the elevator he weakened so
rapidly that the detectives had to lift
him to a couch There he sank into
unconsciousness and was not revived
until the stomach pump had beer
worked vigorously Its prompt use
undoubtedly saved his life
A free lunch often proves to be the
most expensive in the end

wrestler cdnt even throw dice
