WAS CLERK BEFORE THE WAR Made Hit First Money Dealing in Russian Rubles Then Engage In Smuggling Rubber From Fin land and Gets Rich Quickly. Stockholm, Sweden "You want to know what people smuggle? Go up the river then, and you will soon find out. They smuggle nearly everything, so It Is rather difficult to answer the question offhand." So said a custom house officer at Flaparanda, the little Swedish town on the frontier of Fin land, to Herbert Ericson, a Swedish writer, who went up the Tornea valley to Investigate the smuggling stories. "While I was waiting for the Over Tornea train to start, a motorcycle chugged Into the station yard," said Ericson. "That Is one of our rubber barons," remarked an acquaintance to me. A rubber baron, In Haparanda talk, Is a man who suddenly gets rich on smuggling rubber In from Finland. I was in luck, for the baron Karlsson I will call hlra traveled north in my compartment He was a pleasant fel low. He did not remind me of the smart speculators I had met In Norr land. He even looked embarrassed when I began to talk about smuggling. Clerk Before the War. "Presently he told me that at the outbreak of the war he had been a clerk in one of Norrland's coast towns. He had earned his money in rubles. "It Is not generally known that many hundred Swedes have made, big fortunes out of rubles. It happened like this: After the occupation of Poland and other regions of Russia, the Germans found that the population refused to take marks in payment for such supplies as were paid for. The people demanded rubles, and rubles the Germans did not have. The only way of getting them was through Sweden. The Russian government permitted no more than 500 to betak en out of the government by each traveler, but with the Incentive of a good reward smugglers were not lack ing. The Haparanda agents bought up these rubles and sent them down to Germany by bales. ' "When the Germans had bought all the rubles they wanted Karlsson tried to smuggle drugs to Finland. That failed absolutely. He met with a dis aster at the outset.

SHORT & DONOVAN whh seized by the Swedish customs au thorities and a heavy fine was im posed. "So he got into touch with some Finnish merchants who, for a price, guaranteed to have a large quantity of rubber rings on tho Swedish aide of the river nt a certain minute on a cer tr.ln day. "Entering Into relations with a firm In Stockholm and finding that he could make many thousnnd kroner profit thereby, Kni-lsaon told the Finns to go ahead. One nltrht he went to Muttlla, where the rubber whs to be ready. Matttla Is a tiny station on the nap-arnnda-Over-Tornea stretch of rail way, and almost on the bank of the river. No Sign of Custemi Officer. "When he arrived there was no sign of a Russian custom house officer across stream. The revolution has al tered matters. The Cossacka wlu used to patrol the Russian shore had disappeared. Tlip new guards appoint ed by the revolutionaries found it more Interesting to stay In Tornea. Ki.rlsson picked up the rubber. This was only the first of a chain of such transac tions he managed with financial suc cess. "Karlsson has meticulously taken the goods so smuggled to the Swedish cus toms authorities, to be assessed for duty. Quantities of tin, flour and lin seed oil have similarly come over the river for many months past. Tin gives the Finns an advantage. I found one case where a druggist had come to grief by taking delivery of and paying heavily for a thousand kilos of a cheap alloy. The flour smuggling seems to indicate that the Finns engaged must be blackguards of a particularly ob noxious type, for they ship flour out of their land while they know that tens of thousands of their fellow countrymen are nearly starving and that their government is sending out commissions full of piteous appeals to other lands, America Included, to spare them a little flour. It seems curious that these commissions could not have tarried a week at the frontier and or ganized a guard to put a stop to the drain of flour there." 9 PHONE COMPANY PUTS BAN ON HUN MESSAGES Brookfield, Mo.

Dr. Livingstone Farrand Appeal to People to Enter Battle Against Disease. New York. Mortality from tuber culosis among the civilian population and in the armies of all the countries engaged in the war has at least ap proximated the total number of sol diers killed in buttle, according to Dr. Livingstone Furrand, director of the American commission for the preven tion of tuberculosis In France. Thut the people of America throw themselves into the winning of tbe war against tuberculosis with the same real with which they have hurled themselves against the Hun is tbe bur den of an appeal made by Doctor Far rand on the eve of his return to France. "To make our country really safe we must first moke it healthy," la the slogan Doctor Farrand suggests for this war ugtilnst disease. Of the men called to the colors by the first draft 50,000 were found to be tubercular. This is one of the striking indications of the prevalence of the disease. "While the war has thus effectually dlscldscd conditions which existed be fore, rather than produced these condi tions, it is also true that in Indirect ways it hus substantially Increased the tuberculosis problem in the European countries involved," says Doctor Far rand. "I refer not to the situation in the armies, where the mode of life often tends to reduce this disease, but to con ditions which affect the civilian popu lation." Increased food, clothing and housing costs necessitating, among the lower wage groups, diminished quantity and quality and their resultant undernutri tion, are given as contributing causes. A nation-wide campaign against the disease and for adequate provision for rejected and discharged soldiers Buf fering from It is planned through 1,500 local societies of the National Tuber culosis association.
