MRS, THOMSON LIGHT-ON glllNIIIMIMMiaHH A Singular Vindication Br DONALD CHAMBERLIN TELLS WOMEN OIL TRADE l bo How She Was Helped During The Federal Commission to Nearly a hundred years ago, when New Yorfc city was what would now be considered a small town, a young man stood on a dock In the East river waiting for the arrival of a sallshlp that was coining up the bay. When the ahlp arrived, was docked and the dozen passengers that bad come from England on her began to descend th gangplank the young man mentioned. . f pcruttntelng each person, finally pointed j to a woman with a patch over her left eye and called upon a constable stand lng beslde him to arrest her. She waa ' taken to the headquarters of the watch. where she proved to be a man. Then a young woman who stood by throve her arms about the man who bad caus ed the arrest and silently wept tears of relief, with her head on bis shoulder, Ten years before, at seventeen, she had married Abel Williams, two years her senior, a clerk in the counting room of Edward Hooper, a china merchant They were very happy, and a little girl was born to them. One evening when the young husband was playing with 'his little daughter several men entered and arrested him on a charge of em bezzllng money from bis employer. For some time Williams was at a loss to understand why he, conscious of be ing perfectly Innocent, had been charg ed with crime. Then, remembering cer tain suspicious circumstances connect" ed with a fellow clerk named Skinner, he came to the conclusion that Skinner was the defaulter and had laid his pec ulations at Williams' door. Abel's books were brought into court at his trial and showed conclusively that tome one bad been covering up a loss of about $20,000. He was not an ex pert accountant and floundered hope lessly in bis defense. He was convict ed and sentenced to five years' impris onment During his incarceration his wife stood by him, and when he stepped from prison she took him home, and. the two began to plan for his vindica tion. Unfortunately an investigation would cost money. Besides, there was no clew, nor were there in thoHe days detectives, as there are now. After considering the matter for some time they gave up hope of removing the stigma. Abel, having been a criminal. could not secure a position and was obliged to make a living by working at home. He was very handy with a knife and carved out trinkets that his wife sold for him. One difficulty In the way of his vin dication was that Skinner bad left New York, and no one knew where he had Cone. His disappearance confirmed Abel's suspicion that he was the real criminal and bad covered up his own defalcation through the books kept by AbeL A criminal In one case is likely to be a criminal in other cases, and had Skinner remained in New York possibly he might have got into trou ble that would have explained Abel's ruin. But Abel was not sure that Skin ner was guilty. While in prison one of the inmates whose cell was directly over Abel's ap pealed to him to assist him In making an escape. The man cut a hole In the floor and, let himself down Into Abel's cell. A&t permitted him to hide un der his cot Abel, who was employed on the prison books and accorded spe cial privileges, also consented that the man should take advantage of them. He thus escaped, and Abel lost his job on the books and was relegated to a cell One day when Abel was at work making a toy ship a man walked In and stood looking at him. Ton don't remember me," be said. "I'm the ma a yon helped to escape from prison. I've come to pay you for what you did and suffered for me. I dont know whether you are a bad un w a good nn and don't care. I only know that fm bad. A 11 of mine who has got some valuable Jewels that be and I took together 'on the otber aide of the big water is goln to beat me eat e bit share. I can fix It so that be ll have to divide with you." Abel told the man that be would not reclv stolen good. "Well, then." continued the Jaliblrd. t cms fix it this way: There's a Mg re ward offered -t the proierty. You're welcome to It" Abel readily sJMeeted to thin, and the man Informed blm tbst the party was bringing the jewels from Parle, where tbey had teen ttolu, to dispose of them la America.

Merchants everywhere tell our 800 salesmen that business is booming. Farmers have had , two record crops, at big prices, with big demand at home and abroad. Stocks of manufactured material are short, and labor is in great demand. Exports largely exceed imports. Factories are busy, many work ing overtime. . More freight cars are needed, and steamers are taxed to capacity. People are living better, and spending their money more freely. This country has the best money in the world, and more of it than ever before. Such a combination of favorable circumstances never has occurred before, and probably will never occur again. Billions of dollars . are passing over the merchants9 counters. The people who spend this money want the best service. , They demand it in all kinds of stores, from the smallest to the largest. They get it in stores which use our up-to-date Cash Registers, which quicken service, stop mis takes, satisfy customers, and increase profits. Over a million merchants have proved our Cash Registers to be a business necessity.
