Using a $1 'bill as a handkerchief
was Karl C. Johansson's idea of be
Ing humerous and he is now in pris

gerous and suspicious character, to
gether with William Michel. Both
men are sailors on a steamship in
the New Orleans dry dock. a
The two men had entered the yard tl
of the Johnson Iron Works. in Al- h
giers, which is fenced off. and were
commanded to come out by GeorgeI e
Sparlin, one of the United States a
guards. The men advanced in an ti
ugly mood, Johansson and Michel
using vulgar language towards the
guard. Johansson drew a $1 bill
from his pocket as he approached .
the guard, put it to his nose and i
blow into it, saying it would make u
a good handkerchief. Spartin lev- a
eled his rifle at the sailors and held a
them until the arrival of Corporal et

over to the police.

Thursday by jumping into the Mis- -

was pumped out of him and he was
pronounced out of danger.
The man admitted having tried toa
kill himself. He said he was des

despondency. Whether he has rela

,be determined by the police.
RED CROSS.
Owing to the prevailing epidemic
of Spanish influenza, the Algiers
Branch of N. O. Chapter, A. R. C., is
kept busy every day from 9 a. m. until
5.30 p.m. filling the emergency orders
for contagious ward masks received
from the N. O. Chapter. The first al
lotment of 3,000, which was completed
in four days' time, was followed ut
by three additional gllotments ot
1,500 each, making a total of 4.300
Although an appeal for more worker
was made from the Folly Theatre on
Wednesday last, it did not meet with
the response anticipated and the work
has lagged in consequence. Now, in
order to complete these very large
orders in rthe shortest possible time
we again appeal to the workers ol
all departments of our Branch, as well
as to outsiders to assist us. To those
who found the blindsattching tedious.
we wish to say that same has been
replaced by machinge stitching, which
grently facelitates the work an en
ablse us to turg out a larger number
of masks each day.
This particular work is not con
fined to the Surgiceal Dressings Class
but is intended for all departments
|of the Branch, and as there will be
no garment making while this allot
ment is lin process, we urge the work
eors of the BSewing and Knitting De
partments to report at the workroom
as often as possible.
On account of the ever increasin9
number of cases of influenza lin our
district, the Knights of Columbus
Home has been transformed into an
emergency hospital. Consequently, our
workroom has been removed to the
Belleville School Annex, where the
work of the Branch will be conducted
until further notee. The room will be
opened every day from 9 a. m. until
5:30 p. m. Everybody welcome.

Peter Iupp made applicatiih, for
enlistment in the Navy im~medlately
after the United States had entered
the World War: but, on account of
his light weight, he was rejected.
Later on, he was successful in his
efforts to meet the required weight
and was finally accepted and sent to
the Nava4 Hospital.
Peter Rtpp, who was the son of
the late Elizabeth Crane and John
Rupp, was born on August 22. 1886.
He received ,his early education In
our tpublic schools. <He was a grad
uate of the Soule College and at the
age of twenty-one years, he became
a Graduate Pharmacist and it was at
this time that he opened up his drug
business at the corner of Bermuda
and Elita 8ts. The growth of Peter
Rupp's drug business was like magic.
L& grew to such proportion that from
time to time, he was compelled to
put on additional help to take care
of h!s increasing business.
As a business man, he had the coa
f!dence of his customers. As a pry
fessional man, he had the confidente
of the physicians of this city. Short
ly after his connection with the Nav
al Station, he was placed in charge
of several classes where he taught
Pharmacy da!ly ., those in his de
pirtment under his charge.
Mr. itupp was a member of the
State Board of Pharmacy, having
been appointed to .the position by
Mayor Behrman a few years ago, and
while serving on the board, he was
elected as one 'of the examiners in
I practical Pharmacy and during the
four years that he held, this position,
he examined many applicants for
certificates in this branch of the pro
fession.
Peter Rupp was a member of the
