the most horrible crime of the century,

Hauptmann looked haggard as he
was brought into the courtroom to
hear the verdict of the jury. His face
was covered with a dark stubble of
beard and his clothes appeared badly
rumpled. As the jurors took their
place in the box, he glanced at them,
and must have seen that the verdict
was unfavorable, for he was seen to
slump in his seat for the first time,
and thereafter he looked straight
ahead while waiting for the judge to

Where Bruno Will Spend Last Hours
Hbb9 B BJI mb B E
In this death cell Bruno Hauptmann will spend his final hours of liffe.
Death cells are ten feet wide and twelve feet long and have only a cot for
furnishings. Mrs. Hauptmann will be permitted to visit her husband, prison
authorities said, although he will see his son only once—just before he dies.
Hauptmann occupies No. 1 cell of “murderers’ row” in the death house, in which
110 condemned men have preceded him.
Fatal Evidence Against Hauptmann
The money and its wrapping which were found In the garage of Bruno
Hauptmann in the Bronx and identified as part of the Lindbergh ransom
money. It is believed that possession of this money was the deciding factor
that brought a verdict of guilty. Hauptmann's story that this cash wag given
him by the dead Isidore Fisch never could be substantiated by the defense,
and this point carried more weight than any other with the jury.

will be able to work on It, and the same
scientist, or some others, will be able
to discover the way of killing It. Let
us hope these discoveries come soon.
The common cold Is certainly the cause
of an amazing amount of discomfort In
this world.
Medical science, however, has learned
that there are two types of colds—one
that is contagious and one that is not.
The non-contagious type is the one
that most chronic head cold sufferers
have. The infectious type is the one
that most of us get. It is the one that
comes in “waves.”
Medical science, too, has determined
pretty well thj>t we all have the cold
virus (a germ is called a virus when
it is so small that you cannot see it
with a microscope) In our noses and
throats constantly. When we are well
the cold virus doesn’t bother us any
more than a dust spot on healthy skin
bothers us. But let us get below par, j
then —well, the cold virus is there
rendy to attack, and loses no time “get
ting In its work.”
In experiments which we have been
carrying on in the University of Illinois,
we have learned that the temperature
of the lining of the nose has a great
deal to do with whether or not we are
resistant to a cold. Briefly the action
is this: In a normal healthy person,
when cold water or cold air strikes the
body anywhere, the temperature of the
lining membrane of the nose drops in
stantly below normal, and before the
temperature of the skin drops. Then
within the space of a few minutes, the
temperature of the lining of the nose
rises above normal and stays there long
enough to counteract the bad effect of
the below normal period. Then it set
tles back to normal. In other words,
a healthy body machinery has the abil
ity to adapt itself, within reason, to
exposure to cold, and to ward off Its ill
But now supposing the body is be
low par. Then when cold air strikes
the skin at any spot, the temperature
of the nose goes down instantaneously,
but Instead of going up again Immedi
ately as it should, it stays down for
perhaps half an hour or longer. And
when the blood holds away from the
surface for longer than ten minutes,
we have found, the cold germs seize
the chance to get In their work, and
in a very short time our noses are run
ning and we are sneezing. The cofd
germs are multiplying by the millions
and ready to fasten themselves on any
person that comes In contact with our
wet handkerchiefs or the spray from
our mouth. It is In this beginning
stage that the common cold is most in
But it is now that quick work on
our part can often stop the cold. If
we can get the temperature of the
nose to rise above normal for a while
so that we can sweat and the blood
in the nose can come to the surface
to battle against the germs, and we
can rest our bodies for a bit, the
chances are pretty good that we can
conquer the cold within a few hours.
The best tactics to use at this time are
those grandmother used —a steaming
hot foot bath while wrapped in blankets,
a hot lemonade to drink, a warmed bed
to get Into, and then rest there until
the next morning.
But if the soft underlying tissues of
the nose become water-logged with
serum filtered through the walls of the
blood capillaries, the cold will run its
normal course. It is too late to try
to abort it when the serum is deposit- j
ed in the tissues outside of the blood
vessels. Nothing will remove the clot
ted serum within the walls of the
nose except the ferments in the white
blood corpuscles. This third and last
stage is not considered by most author
ities to be so infectious as the first and
second stages.
The best way to prevent infectious
head colds is to keep the lining of the :
nose and its underlying vascular net- |
work in a normal state of function.
The skin of the whole body must be
kept in “tone," and this can be done
by a warm morning bath followed by a
cool shower, or at least a washing of
the face, arms and hands with cold
water and a cool rubdown of the rest
of the body. Then be out in the open
air at least an hour a day. Eat plenty
of fruit, vegetables, dairy products,
lean meats, and go easy on starches
and sweets.
And avoid as you would a pestilence,
the person who is in the sneezing stage
of a cold and who is showering the air
with germs. No one is resistant enough
to withstand a too big dose of fresh
cold germs.

Empire of Russia Made Over
by Peter.
Speaking of courageous reformers.
Czar reter the Great, of Russia, in
the Eighteenth century, set one of
the best patterns in nil history. Hen
drick Van Loon, the historian, SHys:
“It Is not easy to give a list of the
reforms which he brought about. The
czar worked in furious haste. He
followed no system. He issued de
crees with such rapidity that It is
difficult to keep count of them. Pe
ter seemed to feel that everything
that had ever happened before was
entirely wrong. The whole of Rus
sia therefore must be changed with
in the shortest possible time. The
old system of government had been |
abolished over night. The dmna or j
convention of nobles had been dis- |
missed and in its stead the czar had j
surrounded himself with an advisory ,
board of state officials called the sen
ate. Russia was divided into eight
large provinces. Roads were con
structed. Towns were built. Indus-1
tries were created wherever it j
pleased the czar. Canals were dug
and mines were opened in the moun
tains of the East. In this land of
illiterates, schools were founded.
Dutch naval engineers and trades
men and artisans from all over the
world were encouraged to move to
Russia. Printing shops were estab
lished, but all books must be first
read by the imperial censors. The
duties of each class of society were
carefully written down in a new law
and the entire system of civil and
criminal laws was gathered into a se
ries of printed volumes. The old
Russian costumes were abolished,
and policemen, armed witli scissors,
watching all the country roads,
changed the long-haired Russians
suddenly into a pleasing imitation of
the smooth-shaven west-Europeans.
While the czar was away from home
a sudden rebellion sprang up. The
czar appointed himself executioner
in-chief and the rebels were hanged
and quartered and killed to the last
man. Sister Sophia, who had been
head of the rebellion, was locked up
in a cloister. When Czar Peter was
away on a second trip, to increase
his knowledge of the outside world,
there was another rebellion. This
time the reactionaries followed the
leadership of Peter’s half-witted son
Alexis. Alexis was beaten to death
in his prison cell and the friends of
this rebellion were marched thou
sands of dreary miles to their final
destination in the Siberian lead
mines. After that no further out- j
breaks of popular discontent took
place. Until the time of his death,
Peter could reform In peace.”
