Copies of the decision made by
Judge Hunger in the United States
court of appeals in the mat
ter of the state of Missouri vs. John
son B. Angle, trustee in bankruptcy,
have been received here. The hear
ing was on a petition to reviBe the
order of the* district court of the
United States for the eastern district.
The federal court ordered that the
receiver named by the state court
turn over, certain property in his pos
session to the trustee in bankruptcy.
The decision by the circuit court of
appeals upheld the federal court find
In 1911 the court finds that D. H.
Sage assumed the ownership of the
bank previously established by him
self and W. N. Sage. On October 15,
1914, D. H. Sage notified the bank
commissioner of Missouri that the
bank had closed its doors and re
quested the bank commissioner to

of Missouri applied to the state court
for the appointment of a receiver.

On February 3, 1915, the trustee
made application requesting the
United States court for the eastern
district of Missouri to direct the re
ceiver to surrender to the trustee in
bankruptcy the property of the sage
Banking company. The court den'e-d
the request. On May 8, 1915, the
state circuit covrt in compliance with
trustee's application, made an ordei*
directing receiver to surrender pos
session of the assets after deducting
a sum it alIo-v6d as compensation to
receiver and attorney. An appeal
was taken to the supreme court of
Missouri. On May 24, 1915, the trus
tee renewed .bis application. for an
order directing receiver to surrender
assets. The court on August 16, 1915,
made the order that the receiver sur
render to trustee all the assets in
his possession or control beloncio?
to ihe estate of David H. Sage, doing
business as the Sage Banking com
pany, and it 16 of this order that
complaint is now made.
"The principal question presented
in this case is whether David H. Sage
owned the property that was held by
the receiver appointed by the state
court," the decision I'eads. "If that
property did not belong to D. H.
Sage the bankruptcy court was not
entitled to administer it. The ques
tion of ownership involves a consid

The decision cites the opinion of
the Missouri supreme court in tne
case of the state vs. Sage and says:
"Ordinarily a court of the United

Considering the opinion as a whole
this decision by the supreme court
of Missouri did not declare a bank
such as that here in question to be
a corporation, but to be a separate
business enterprise of the owners of
the bank and as such governed by
certain statutes of Missouri whicn
give priority to the creditors of the
bank over other individual creditors
of D. H. Sage. The question
here involved is not to whom these
assets shall be distributed, but what
court shall decide the question. ArJ
it was held that David H. Sage was
the owner of the property possessed
by the Sage Banking company it
follows that the administration of
those assets belong to the court of
bankruptcy, it is claimed that the
possession of the bank examiner, ot
the agent of the bank commissioner
and then of the receiver was such
as to place these assets in the cus
tody of the circuit court of Missouri
and that its prior seizure of this
property entitled it to continue to
final administration. There are sev
eral answers to this contention. The
possession by the examiner aj»d ny
the special agent of the bank exam
iner were acts of administrative offi
cers and not of judicial executives.
The application to the state court-of
Missouri for (ho appointment of a re
ceiver was not made until November
21, 1914, two days after the petition
in bankruptcy was filed against David
H. Sage in the U. S. court at Keo
kuk and aftar the exclusive jur'na'a
tion of the bankruptcy court had
A final contention is made that the
court should not have ordered the
surrender of all the assets, but
should have recognized the deduction
of the compensation of the receiver
and his attorney. As the state court
was without any power to administer
any portion of the assets of David
H. Sage, it must be without power
to award compensation to its otucer
for performing part of that labor.

THE DAILY GATE OFT?1
Black Smudge Across the November
Number of Metropolitan Maga
zine Contains Key to Mysti
BIGGEST STORY OF YEAR
Lawsuit Filed in New York Brings
to Light Alleged Reasons
Why the Article Was
No doubt a number of Keokukians
have been mystified by the strange
cover on the November number of the
Metropolitan magazine. At the top
of the cover page against a black
background is the line "The biggest
magazine story of the year." But the
story is inissing.
The cover depictB two figures, a
gloomy, beetle-browed Svengali, at
whose feet sits a young woman in a
gorgeous costume. This mystical
picture has no meaning unless one has
guessed what lies beneath the black
smudge that runs across the page be
hind the picture.
The Hidden Letters.
When the page is held up to the
light, underneath the black mark these
words may be made out, "Beginning
Illiodor's revelation of Rasputin, the
Sacred Devil of Russia." The Octo
ber number of the Metropolitan adver
tised the story, and promised it should
be a sensational story of the Russian
court as it is today, told by Illiodor,
driven from the court, who consented
to tell America about the influence ot
Rasputin on the court. But the story
does not appear as advertised.
According to light thrown on the
matter through a law suit that has
resulted, it would seem that the
gloomy figure on the cover page is
Rasputin, the Russian peasant monk
who dominates the czar's household
and the elite of Petrograd society,
the woman at his feet, the czarina.
Law Suit is Brought.
The following dispatch from New
York tells why the story was with
NEW YORK, Oct. 25.—Whether
certain articles dealing with the al
leged Influence of Rasputin, the so
called Russian mystic, over the Rus
sian court, and written by Illiodor, a
Russian monk, and alleged to have
been withheld from publication by the
Metropolitan magazine, may -be pub
lished elsewhere, is the object of in
junction proceedings brought by Illio
dor against the magazine in the su
preme court here.
The plaintiff asks the magazine he
restrained "from interfering with me
in the publication of my articles," al
leging that after the Metropolitan
had agreed to publish them for $5,000
"it seems now and with thn conniv
ance of the Russian governments the
Metropolitan magazine refused to pub
lish these articles and is willing to
pay me in order to suppress them."
Sees Injury to Russia.
Illiodor, who says he arrived in tho
United States from Norway, In June
last, alleged that "the suppression of
this information at this time when it
may weaken or destroy the Rasputian
influence and intrigue may work an
Incalculable injury to Russia and will
defeat the purpose for which I am
working and have suffered in prison."
Characterizing Rasputin as "an Illit
erate and uneducated peasant, who is
known as a pilgrim possessing certain
supernatural gifts," Illiodor describes
in his complaint the alleged domina
tion of Rasputin over the Russian
court, asserts that Rasputin Is strong
ly pro-German and is now "engaged
in a conspiracy to bring about a sep
arate peace with the Russian govern
ment," all of which wis to have been
the basis of his articles.
Promised Pardon and 925,000.
He alleges that when it became
known the articles were to be pub
lished he was promised by the Rus
sian consul general here, Oustinoff,
and Archbishop Bvdokim "$25,000 and
a full pardon so that I could return to
Russia if I did not publish them," and
that later on, "pretending to take up
the negotiations,' Oustinoff paid him
$1,000. The Metropolitan, he alleges,
clallhs the articles as its property,
and will enjoin him from publishing
them elsewhere. Illiodor claims they
are his through breach of contract.

TRY THIS! YOUR HAIR APPEARS
GLOSSY, ABUNDANT, WAVY
Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy
hair is mute evidence of a neglected
scalp of dandruff—that awful scurf.
There is nothing so destructive to
the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair
of its lustre, its strength and its very
life eventually producing a feverish
ness and itching of the scalp, which
if not remedied causes the hair roots
to shrink, loosen and die—then the
hair falls out fast. A little Danderine
tonight—now—any time—will surely
save your hair.
Get a 26-cent bottle of Knowlton's
Danderine from any drug store or
toilet counter, and after the first
application your hair will take on
that life, lustre and luxuriance which
is so beautiful. It will become wavy
and. fluffy and have the appearance
of abundance, an Incomparable gloss
and softness but what will please
you most will be after just a few
week's use, when you will actually
see a lot of fine, downy hair—new
hair—growing all over the scalp.
Danderine is to the hair what froi*,'i

vegetation. It goes right to the roots,
Invigorates and strengthens them. Its
