By Uultfit I'reji.
CLEVEIAND, Aug. 3. After an in
vestigation of 400 criminal cases,
James J. Lind .Cleveland chief police
prosecutor, has found out that nine
tenths of all crooks are unmarried.
Two thirds of the men jailed were be
tween the ages of 21 and 30, according
to his figures, available here today.
"It seems that conditions in unmar
ried life tend to make men criminals
or that persons with criminal instincts
are inclined not to marry," concluded
Kind after his investigation.
"This Is hard to prove because wom
en prisoners are not inclined to tell
the truth. When a woman lands in
jail she generally claims to be mar
ried and says if her husband hears of
her predicament he will forsake her
forever. She also claims to be the
mother of several small children de
pendent on her care all of which nine
times out of ten, is untrue.
"If a married man gets into trouble
he generally commits a real crime,
not a misdemeanor. If a married man
with children finds his way behind
the bars, it is usually money troubles
which have placed him there.
"Rut if any particular class of the
human family is a menace to the rest,
unmarried men are the guilty ones.
"The way to lessen crime is to ad
vocate early marriages. What a man
needs to keep, him out of trouble is
a good home environment.
"If mothers realized this they would
cease opposing early marriages."

This is the warning sent out to dis
trict clerks and members of the school
board all over the state In the cam
paign of the State Veterinarian, under
the Missouri State Board of Agricul
ture of Columbia, in co-operation with
the officials of the United States De
partment of animal husbandry, to con
trol and prevent hog cholera and other
diseases of hogs.
Experimental Work Is Done.
It is proposed to deal with hog chol
era on the same principles as with
other diseases of live stock which have
alreaily ben controlled. Experimental
work in Pettis County has demonstrat
ed the essentials of success. The work
was begun in Grundy and Henry coun
ties early in 1910 and hog cholera has
been kept under control in these two
counties at a small expense.
Ten additional Southwest Missouri
counties are now organized, so work
can be done this year and hog cholera
kept under control. It is further
planned to make this work State-wide
during 1917 in order to stop millions
of dollars of loss from the diseases in
The system will consist of locating
the breaking out of the disease and
reporting it to the central office in
Columbia. I'p to July 21 breakouts on
nine farms were reported by tele
phone and within an hour a deputy
was on the way with reliable serum.
In no case has the disease been al
lowed to spread to another farm.
Expenses will be paid by the State
or Federal government. The owner
will be asked to pay onlyfor the se
rum at cost. There will be no charge
for Its administration or the investi
gation. The owner should, however,
keep his sick hogs rounded up so that
they will not spread the disease to the
neighbors' hogs, and he should also
burn all hogs that die from any dis
Serum in Affected Herds Only. I
Only in affected herds will serum be
administered at State expense. The
owners of healthy hefds in neighbor
hoods where cholera exists will be
advised to vaccinate their hogs, but
they must pay for the serum and the
If there is any prejudice against
vaccinating the United States Depart
ment of Animal Industry will put
on a limited demonstration to test
the matter before the eyes of the hog
raiser without any expense to any
body. Dr. Ralph Graham of Sedalia is in
charge of the work in behalf of the

ATLANTIC CITY. N. J., Aug. 3
Politicians here got their ears close to
the ground in anticipation of the emergency-called
convention of the Nation
al American Woman Suffrage Associa
tion, which opens here September 6.
This was shown by letters and tele
grams pouring in on suffrage leaders
With the leaders of the women's
forces determined to follow up the vic
tories gained at the Democratic and
Republicans national conventions, the
action to be taken by the delegates
here promises to hold much interest
for the political wiseacres at the
Mioreover, this interest is .being stim
ulated by the air of mystery which
hovers over the suffrage convention,
aa comparatively little news has leaked
out to date concerning either the pro
gram or the plans of the leaders. Nor
will women at the head of the move
ment relieve the anxiety of the watch
ful political waiters with any advance
information on the subject.
"We have called the convention so
that everj' phase of every subject
which concerns our cause, our ivolicies
and our organization may be properly
considered," said Mrs. Carrie Chap-j
man Catt, president of the National
American Woman Suffrage Associa
tion, when interviewed here today.
"But what action are you going to
take?" demanded the interviewer.
"That will be for the convention to
decide," was the smiling reply. "You
may state, however, that no voice will
be silenced and no opinion suppressed."
Further than that Mrs. Catt would
Sixty-seven state suffrage organiza
tions, covering every state in
the Union, are affiliated with the na
tional suffrage association and will be
represented at the convention, which
will extend from September 6 through
September 10. Altogether, more than
a thousand of the most representative
women of the country will be in at
Although the official program lias
not yet been made public, it is known
that a three-sided debate among the
supporters of state action, federal ac
tion and those who believe in both,
will be one of the big features of the
In the South the feeling is said to be
strong against the national suffrage
association abandoning any policy that
would lead to a straight fight for a
federal suffrage amendment.
In other sections of the country,
notably in those states where amend
ments to state constitutions take years
of work and are regarded as practical
ly impossible, the sentiment is report
ed to be equally strong for the aban
donment of state campaigns and a con
centration of the national's machinery,
for a drive on Congress.
Both of these factions will be well
represented at the convention, as well
as those suffragists who believe In a
continuation of the policy of combined
federal and state action, which has
won twelve states for suffrage and
Converted millions of voters to believe
in it all over the nation.
The clash between these factions
will be watched with interest by the
politicians, because the outcome may
have a decided effect upon the fall
campaigns of both the leading parties.

groceries. The reason for this is that the Missourian is read by
