TRIES TO FiNn miT why An Englishman Ncrcr Allows His BY BILLTE BURKE THE SAVOY, .London Eng., July 14 An American girl friend of mine took tea with me at the Savoy yester day. It was the first time I had seen her since her marriage. Remembering how many times I had been asked the question, I pass ed it on to her "Why, do American girls marry Englishmen?" She took it very seriously and said: "I think there aro many reasons be side mere title and position. First, over home, I have always felt when Bo1 or Jack or any of the rest made lovo to me that, after all, I was a secondary Interest. When they got together they were always talking about some business or sport which I did not understand. "When I wanted them to do any thing before six in the evening they never had time. They always seem ed ready enough to give me every thing but themselves. They telephon ed the florist to send me flowers, but not one of thorn wpuld walk with me In the early morning. They laughed at me when I asked them to go and see a picture. "On the other hand, my English husband always had time to be with me, always seemed Interested in the things in which I was interested. Ho knew enough about art to talk about pictures; he would even take a chance at a discussion of the latest problem play. AUS Pennsylvania Co. Attributes Most Accidents to the Tight Skirt and High Heeled Shoes Worn These Days. To the thousand and on evils that have been laid at the door of the high heel and hobble skirt the Pennsyl vania railroad now adds a few moro In declaring that these adjuncts to woman's dress are chiefly responsible for the injuries caused In women fall ing from trolley cars and tumbling down the steps at the railroad station. This is not a wild statement either, but is made after an Investigation of various accidents to women covering a period of three months and 73 Individ ual cases. The injuries ranged from slight contusions to painful sprains and cuts, and in almost every case the contributing cause Is put down as "Heel caught on step of car and was torn off" or "High heel caught while descending stairs; wore hobble skirt". Observations of this character are made in the book of instructions Just issued by the Pennsylvania company to its employes and intended to be a guide to them In preventing accidents as much as possible. Now, instead of watching the step, they will watch the hobble, to try to forecast whether its wearer is getting ready to tumble down a long llight of steps. If she is, then the employe must try his best to get ready to catch her. The book is entitled "Safety Hints and Suggestions for the Prevention of Personal Injury Accidents", and was written after ex perts had made an exhaustive study of the various accidents reported. From the figures obtained by the railroad company nine out of ten of the persons who have been injured in the railroad stations have been wo men. Their injuries range from slight confusions to broken legs. In almost 90 per cent of the accidents the cause ha. been either that the women wore high heels or that they had such tight skirts that they could not help them selves. Most of the high heels acci dents were caused by the heels coming off the shoes when the women were alighting from tho trains or out of taxicabs and carriages at the en trance; in some cases the extra height of the heel caused the wearer to top ple over.

Business to Interfere With His Lovcmakinc Appears to bo Answrr. "He also paid me tho subtle com pliment of telling me about his busi ness affairs (something the boys at home never did); got me interested in "drains" and "sanitages cottages" and other things about the estate. While he was rather masterful, yet he someway made me feel of more im portance in the world than a finely dressed doll to be cared for and play with and put aside whenever matters of business loomed up. "The American man makes you feel that he is paying you a compliment, but the Englishman always feels as though you were complimenting him by accepting his attentions.' By a happy coincidence I met my friend's husband thj next day and while waiting for her to join us at tea I asked him the question: "Why do so many of you marry American girls?" He took the question seriously and answered: PHONE 295. UBS. LEHHERTS IS BURIED BESIDE SDH Father Explains How it Was That Body Came to be Moved to Elkhart Daughters Re quested Disposition. ELKHART, Ind., July 14. That the body of Mrs. Laura Krelder Robb Lemmerts was moved from the Bow man cemetery In South Bend to Grace Lawn cemetery in this city primarily because two children by a former marriage had requested that it be placed beside tho body of a much be loved son is the assertion of Newton Kreider, father of the dead woman. To Dr. Lemmerts statement that the body had been moved without his consent or knowledge becauso of re ligious scruples which the parents of the woman possessed, Mr. Kreider made positive denial and declared that he knew nothing of Mr. Lem merts' religious affiliations. He then consented to make the following statement for publication: Tho Father's Explanation. "My daughter died in a South Bend hospital while I was- a resident of Mishawaka. Mr. Lemmerts I did not know he was a doctor bought a grave in the Bowman cemetery and she was buried there. Not long aft erward we moved to Elkhart and it was then that the two children by her former husband, William Ilobb. began Insisting that her body be brought to Elkhart and placed beside her son. I took tho matter up with the sexton of the Bowman cemetery and was told that tho grave had been unkept, and that he had not seen anything of Mr. Lemmerts. I told him what I wanted to do, and he said that if I secured a permit from the board of health he would open the grave. I consulted Joseph Robb, fi ther of William Robb. and also the latter, her divorced husband. The permit was easily secured and the body was brought here and buried on the Robb lot by the side of a dear ly beloved son." ARE WONDERING WHERE PRETTY DRESSMAKER IS Leaving nothing but unsatisfied ob ligations and promises to pay them, Mis3 Olive Raven, a dressmaker, and her assistant. Miss Beulah Roach, have left the city for parts unknown. Their former headquarters In the Monger building have been closed on a writ of attachment Issued from Justice Brumbaugh's court. The rooms are said to contain a sewing machine and several unfinish ed gowns, the material of which was secured on credit from KIkhart's de partment stores. Miss Raven is a demure, attractive little woman of the French type. Her charm of manner and personality act ed as latch keys to a number of Elk hart's best homes. Her assistant. Miss Roach, Is an Elkhart young wo man of 20 years, whose divorced par ents had left her to shift for herself.
