Unusual Profession Has No
Terrors For City Pioneer
Only Woman 'Embalmer
..In the State Says
'- ' ' Little But Says
- It Well.
The last twenty-five years
has - worked wonders for
' ; women.
; -Business vistas have been
opened to them. They have
. accepted the burden that hith-
erto was borne by ' the male,
? and have ' carried it well.
; Hardly any line of endeavor is
now closed to women. They
. do their work, and they, do it
: efficiently. ' Men, ; no matter
i how prejudiced, will concede
that fact with emphasis.
There are many lines of
work where women are many.
" There are a few where women
are few. Undertaking is one
'j off these lines.
The reason perhaps, lies in
the fact that embalming does
not appeal to women; that the
; etBfotional side of the female
i o& the species will not permit
r her,, to do such work.
I '? Only Woman in State
Ths argument is refuted by Mlsa
! Margaret I Gallagher, Bridgeport's
: only woman embalmer, and the only
! wtotMi engaged in such, a business in
f the state, so far as present-day rec
.rfls show. Mies Gallagher is by no
i means an assistant, which the male
i undertaker takes with him .to assist
sfc- the burfcil of a female. . She Is a
graduate of the finest college in the
f country, and is fitted to do the work,
I frm -start to finish, to do it alone,
!- nd to do it well.
t ifMf-I didrat like the work I. couldn't
d it,"is Miss Gallagher's reply to . a
nisestion about her business. Extreme-
ry: shy of interviewers, difflcult to se-fL-cure
"copy" from, what she finally
(r consented to say was almost curt, but
" to --the point. A wholesome and at
!. tractive woman, with sympathetic
t, m4en: and motherly manner, still she
f stiffens perceptibly when publicity is
! th, econslderation.
J ' Must Be J'ittl.
I : !"I cant see why a woman shouldn't
j - an embalmer," she said. "Of
course she should feel herself fitted
', for the work, for it is arduous. It
. seems only logical that women should
": Hit' women for burial. Why should a
; woman be cared for .tenderly by wom
r en nurses, and then when she dies.
..' women walk out and the dead wom
: an is given into the hands of men?
j It seems illogical. To me, a dead
. body is sacred, and should be cared
1 for even more tenderly than when
j that same body is alive," continued
-J Miss Gallagher.' And that is the
i watchword of my business, and prob
! ably that is why women prefer my
i services to the same service rendered
by men.
"But the whole matter is rather dif
i Ificult to tallfabout. It is too deli
j cate for newspaper discussion," said
i, Miss Gallagher, in a deprecatory man-
- i ner. "I have been living in Bridge
i port for thirty-three years, and my
.' brother and myself have been in busl-
ness here for thirteen years. At first
. i I was given little hearing, but now
'. the public is beginning to become
j educated to the fact that women are
-Vessential in this business just as they
7 1 are in many others.
' -. "Out West the laws insist that a
'.woman embalmer officiate at the fu
t neral of a woman The East has been
'j Blow in . its legal recognition of the
undertaking business. There were
no laws pertaining to it till 1903, and
now they are more rigid.
Miss Gallagher studied at the fa
mous Renouard Training School for
Embalmcrs in New York city and was
graduated with honors in 190 8 She
had a bard struggle securing admis
sion to the school in the hrst place,
bat -the head of the faculty, a broad-
B Minded and far-seeing man, believed
Jn her sincerity and permitted her to

. field avenue, flanked on one side by
the pietune of her graduating class,
i. and on the other by her state certifi
cate. , An Interesting incident of her col
lege days was related by Miss Gal
laghfer In her class was a Swedish
doctor, sent over here by the Swedish
government to learn American meth
ods of embolming. He said to Miss
Gallagher one day:
"You have so many nervous people
here! I should call nervousness the
great American disease.
Apparently the gentleman became
enamoured of the same disease for he
dropped the study of embalming and
devoted some time to the study of
nervous -disorders. Today he is pro
prietor of a large sanatorium for nerv
ous diseases in Philadelphia.
Someone said once: "No one can
anticipate the wants of womankind
tike a woman. In trouble a woman
friend; iri sickness a woman nurse;
in death a woman embalmer."

REVIEW 10,000
- Washington July 29 Review of
the cases of some ten thousand war
veterans permanently disabled was
. ordered yesterday by the War Risk
Bureau as the result of a ruling by
' the comptroller of the treasury. It
bad been customary, bureau officials
explained, to change the rating of a
veteran from temporary to perma
jaent disability after he had been
six months in a hospital.
' The comptroller's opinion, it was
explained, requires that each case be
judged on its individual merits after
medical examination. The loss of
compensation to the veterans. of
ficials said, would vary in different
,v cases by- a change in rating but
could not be determined until after
the review.

Embassy Bars
lord Kortkliffe
Washington, July 29 Because "for
reasons of which he is not aware" an
invitation to stop at the British em
bassy while in Washington has been
withdrawn. Lord Northcjifte, the
British pubisher, now visiting the
United States, was listed among the
guests at a local hotel today. Dis
closure that embassy hospitalties
previously tendered had been barred
to the British publisher was made in
a statement issued by him after his
arrival in Washington yesterday and
on being approached as to rumors
that invitations to . stop at the em
bassy and attend a dinner there last
night had been withdrawn on instruc
tions from London.
That Lord Northcliffe views the in
cident as an outgrowth of recent
editorial attacks on Premier Lloyd
George and Lord Curzon, the British
foreign secretary, in the London
Times, the leading Northcliffe paper,
opposing the suggestion! that those of
ficials represent Great Britain at
Washington disarmaent conference, is
left in little doubt by the publisher's
statement. "Knowing the methods in
India of Lord Curzpn", the statement
declared, "Lord Northcliffe is pretty
certain that Lord Curzon has adopted
those methods here." Th editorial
attacks were followed by the British
foreign office shutting down on the
privileged news rights enjoyed there
by the Times for years.
"In India while Viceroy," Lord
Northcliffe's statement continued,
"Lord Curzon cut off the news supply
of newspapers that criticized him and
placed a social embargo on their
writers. On the present occasion
Lord Northcliffe says Lord Curzon is
not dealing with Indian natives or
the owners of small Indian news
papers."' Beyond the statement that the re
ported circumstances of the with
drawal of the invitation were "inac
curate" the embassy had nothing to
say about it. Lord Northcliffe added
in his statement that he was "con
soled concerning the cancelled em
bassy dinner" by the fact that he will
meet at a private dinner to be given
him tonight "all the people who were
originally Invited to the embassy din
Rome, July 29. The Fascistl. or
extreme Nationalists, have now taken
a hand in reducing the high cost of
living, bringing into their solution of
it the militant methods which char
acterized the recent election cam
Their appeals to the storekeepers
throughout Italy have not met with
fiat refusal for the storekeepers have
advertised reductions ranging from
ten to 25 per cent. The reductions
aire especially noticeable in the dry
goods stores. The effect has been to
fill these stores with shoppers. Shoe
stores, clothing stores, cafes, restau
rants, hardware stores have increased
their sales immensely in consequence.
The vendors of the prime necessi
ties however, are having their difficul
ties. They ask the peasants to re
duce the prices to them but the peas
ants refuse. As a result, the peasants
have gone on a. strike and refuse to
bring the produce into the cities and
suffer the reductions imposed by the
Kascisti's demands.
A fruit vendor was found selling his
wares without any reduction the other
day. He was accosted by several Fas
cisti who demanded that the price be
reduced. He remonstrated that he
was doing tire selling not they The
remark led to a quarrel The Fas
cist! clubbed the vendor severely He
was taken to the hospital where he
died shortly after his arrival
In other cities, Kascisti are patroll
ing the markets They are armed with
policemen's clubs and inquire the
prices If the prices have not been
reduced they force the vendor to sell
for less

The London despatch, containing
the denial of the British Foreign Of
fice and of Lord Curzon's connection
with the cancellation of the embassy
dinner, was proffered to him. -
"Read it," said he. "I can't see."
The despatch was read.
"Its a lie," Northcliffe sad sharply,
and turned to leave the room.
"Can't you say something further
about it?" the publisher was asked.
"What more do you want," North
cliffe returned. "I said it was a lie,
didn't I?"
The telephone rang and one of his
I secretaries called him.
Just before 'he picked up the re
ceiver, he turned and added:
"I happen to know he did it," re
ferring, evidently, to Lord Curzon.
Lord Northcliffe turned to the
phone and the interview was ended.

Kennett, Mo., July 29. John
Smith's turkey gobbler has become a

obsession that he was a "female of

every conceivable means to break

And so the gobbler "set." Now he

The Pas, Maitoba, July 29 The
church of the Cult of Omar has ex
pired. Founded on the Rulbaiyat of
Omar ithayyam. a new religious or
ganization was born in The Pas this
spring. . It grew rapidly but today
only three of its original members
would admit that they still held firm
to their beliefs.
The exodus from membership
started when a new convert declared
the cult was formed with the object
of getting a government permit to
purchase liquor under guise of its
necessity for sacramental purposes.
Officials of the cult vainly sought to
check withdrawals by denying that
they had any such object in view.

The buses are still running through
the town with overflowing loads
while the trolleys carry very few
passengers. This fact is pointed out
by many. Everybody has the same
question on the top of their tongue,
"Why must we Jet the jitneys be
taken from the streets when they
have proved to be a cheap and con
venient means of transportation?"
It is rumored that the residents of
the town will band together and pre
sent themselves to the commission
as a whole to remedy this condition
if possible. '
