TO PAY BRIDGEPORT TAXES Hartford. Aug. 6 Windham coun ty may be placed under quarantine against rabies if the spread of rabies now suspected in the towns of Klll lngly and Brooklyn is not affected. Commissioner on Domestic Animals James M. Whittlesey announced yes terday, following the issuing of a no tice of a dog quarantine for those two towns as the result of the killing of a rabies infected dog in Brooklyn last Saturday. "The law will be strictly enforced," Commissioner Whittlesey said yester day. "State Policeman Elliott is In charge of the enforcement in Killing ly and Brooklyn and he is equipped with warrants and authorized to make immediate arrests of violators.' As notice of a quarantine must be ad vertised in the towns affected for five days the quarantine must be adver tised in the' town affected for - five days the quarantine will be effective the middle of next week. In the meantime every suspected canine will be a prey to the enforcement offi cers. Because of the visit of the mad dog to Brooklyn last Saturday several children who were bitten by the ani mal are undergoing the pasteur treat ment. Several dogs bitten by the rabies infected canine have been kill ed by the dog warden. A valuable German police dog -was among those killed and - a kennel of similar valu able dog3 Is now under quarantine, according to Commissioner Whittle sey. The quarantine may last until January 1 or longer. Commissioner Whittlesey said. "The period of infection is from twenty-two days to as much as six months." Commissioner Whittlesey said, "and we are taking no chances. If the infection should spread from Killingly and Brooklyn the whole of Windham county may have to be quarantined. The mad dog which was killed in Brooklyn is now believed to have strayed In from Massachusetts. The town of Brooklyn was visited by a mad dog last spring and it was be lieved that the infection had been stamped out as several dogs bitten by the animal were killed. This is evidently a secondary infection." According to the report of the de partment's activities in dog law en forcement in July, which Commis sioner Whittlesey issued yesterday, there were twenty-five prosecutions for violations. There was the one case of rabies in Brooklyn. The num ber of dogs captured by dog wardens was 212 of which thirty-seven were redeemed by their owners. Six dogs were held in pound and 203 dogs were killed. "THE RIGHT TO LOVE CARRIES . WITH IT THE RIGHT TO JILT," BRITISH WRITER ASSEVERATES , By SEVm CI. PAKKE, ; International News Service Staff Cor respondent. London, Aug. 6 as a man the j right to jilt a girl whom he is en ! gaged to marry? The question has been raised by London newspapers following a ! statement mie by Justice McCardie in a breach of promise case at Bir- mingham. "It is my conclusion," said the jus . tice, "that more than half the di ; vorces are caused because It he par ' ties were not really in iove. In many . cases they discovered that fact bet ; fore the marriage .took place. A : srirl has a right to jilt a man but a , man often goes ahead with the raar ; riage, . fearing breach of promise pro i ceedings," The Marchioness Townshend said ; she thought any honest man would j teH his fiancee (that he had ceased to j love her, regardless of the risk of a ' breach of promise suit. The remarkable thing is that so S mans girls fail to realize that the men to whom they are engaged no f longer love them," she added. Miss Genevieve Ward, English ac ; tress, said that an engaged girl should I tbe glad to get rid of a man who has ! transferred his aeffctions to another ; without thinking of breach of prom ; ise suits. I The Daily Mail, canvassing a num ber of ."practical business girls," re ports that they prefer to have their I -fiances tell them the truth before t the trip to the altar. They are gen t eraHy opposed to breach of promise ! actions, but believe that a girl who bar spent a lot of .money for a wed ling outfit should be reimbursed by a. jiltfrn? fiance. "Tin risht -to -love carries with it the right to jilt," announces one writer. "I fa man or woman finds that the early attraction is passing, it is therefore "their bounden duty to break off. The day may a rive when damages will be awarded, not for correcting a very human mistake on the threshold of disister, but for fall ing to correct it. There ought to be away of avoding these disastesr without undue penalty. For there is nothing quite to hideous, or quite so hopeless as a loveless marriage." Seduction One Thing, Whim Another. A well-known English judge, writ ing in the Evening Standard, upholds rnan's right to jilt. "Where, a man has seduced a girl then an action is a verv proper thing," writes this Judge. 'But that se man can be sued merely because, having genuinely (fallen in love he genuinely falls out again, is ridicu lous. In the absence of more serious features ,a woman should not be able to get damages merely because a man changes his mind. "I have known cases where the proposed suit got so far as the issu ing of the writ whe nthe fiance has said, ' Iwould arther marry you than face courts like this." Yes, and I have known cases where the girl has accepted the offer. A good start for connubial bliss! "I do not want to convey the im pression, however, that there are not thoroughly serious i and justified cases. In addition to the class to which T have referred there is that in which a man heartlessly keeps a girl hanging about for years 10, 15. o rmaybe more until she loses all chance of marrying anyone else. When a- man behaves as badly as that it Is clearly- right that he. should have to make -compensation," Washington. Aug. & The Senate to- daj adopted a resolution introduced by Senator (Frank B. Brandegee of Connecticut, calling upon the United States Housing Corporation to explain why it doe not pay taxes on its buildings in Bridgeport, Conn. The housing corporation spent near ly 84500,000 on 471 houses In Bridge port, most of which sprang up direct ly after the cessation of hostilities in the World War .and the value of Its property that was considered taxable during about a year that tH? corpor ation maintained ownership was about $1,500,000, it was learned. Agreed to Settle. -At the time the housing project was begun In Bridgeport, former At torney-General Gregory, ruled that. inasmuch as the United States Hous ing Corporation wa3 a government agency,' "its property could not be taxed. . However, officials of the cor poration expressed their willingness to pay this city for the protection and other benefits extended to its property by the city of Bridgeport and accordingly entered into an agreement with City Attorney Corn ley to pay the city the equivalent of the tax, about 870,000. The housing corporation disposed of all its Bridgeport property in Feb ruary, 1920, it was stated by govern ment authorities, about half the houses being bought by the Bridge port housing corporation and the re mainder being taken by individuals, who of course were required to pas taxe3 on the property from the time tney acquired it. Fail to Reach Adjustment. Representatives of the Bridgeport city attorneys otn-ce have been in con ference with various government offi cials here on different occasions dur ing the past year, and, being unable to reach an adjustment, finally took the matter to Senator Brandegee- for congressional action. It may be necessary for Congress to pass an en abling act to Druis about the pay ment of the money due the city of Bridgeport. - - - Housing corporation records . show that five groups of buildings . were erected dn and about Briageoort. four being in the city and one group in r airffleld. These houses were dis tributed as follows at the time the corporation wound up its affairs in Connecticut, 232 houses in Seaside Park, sixty-six In Grassmere, thirty- six in Black Rock, eighteen in Con necticut avenue and. 128 in Old Mill Green. These buildings were capa ble of accommodating 889 families. PAINT DISMAL PICTURE OF RUSSIA'S ECONOMIC CONDITION Riga, Latvia, Aug. 6 AH Russian news sources,, Bolshevik and anti Bolshevik alike, paint a dismal pic ture of Russia's economic condition this summer. Soviet newspapers themselves ad mit that the famine- which threatens the country may be even worse than in preceding years of the Bolshevik regime. On the other hand, the Bol shevik government contends that, notwithstanding the great difficulties attending the change of Lenine's poli cies during what it terms as the present period of transition from civil war to peace, Russia is slowly, yet steadily advancing on the road to restitution of her economic life. The agricultural machinery which has arrived from abroad will be of little assistance, this year, it is ad mitted. The crop failures in many governments have affected so large a proportion of the area sown that the machinery already on hand will be ample to harvest this year's crop. In fact there are more machines than live stock to draw them and because of the drought the already depleted supply of draft animals is threatened with further extinction because pas ture lands are drying up. The Riga Bolshevik newspaper, Novy Put, recently printed from Mos cow an extremely frank admission. It said: "Several months already have pass ed since the new economic course has been inaugurated in Soviet Russia. But to put, as It were, the engine on a new track, is no easy task and one not to be soon accomplished. The ccumtry is large, the population is sparse, communications and roads are generally bad and the transport service is dislocated. The same is the case with the postal and telegraph traffic. "The new economic policy could not, of course, as yet have yielded any appreciable results. At the same time, during the transition period the economic situation of Russia is at present an exceptionally grave one. The old distribution system has been abolished and does not yield anything, while the new (tax in kind) system can be expected to yield results only after several months. "Moscow, Petrograd and other large industrial centers are experi encing a grave supply crisis, which is only in a slight measure alleviated by imports from abroad, from Siberia and from the Caucasus. This, in its turn, can not but influence unfavor, ably the productivity of industrial establishments. In the Donetz district the output of coal has been only 85 per cent, of the program. In the Moscow mining district, too. the oro- duction has decreased. ' To make the calamity complete. there are the droughts following upon an almost snowless winter. The Volga territory is . under the menace of famine owing to a poor harvest. On the - other hand, in some parts, for in stance in the western portion of the Ukraine, the outlook Is good. vest by means of the tax in-kind, -as well as Dy tree purchase, are never theless fairly satisfactory. It is . ex pected : to establish a- 400, 000.00 poods' grain reserve, which -would make it possible to put industry on 'a firm footing. With this end in view it will, cf course, be necessary to strain the government and the co-operative apparatus to the utmost, as was sug gested by Lenine. It must, of course, be borne in mind that no war is going on at present, the red army is being de mobilized and will shortly have been reduced to one-half of its former strength. The idea of intervention in the Fast East dos not seem to meet with the approval of the Powers, wmcn are up to their ears in trou bles of their own, which, in spite of all their efforts, they are unable to over come. "Nevertheless, everything points to the fact that Soviet Russia, notwith standing the great difficulties she has to face in the present period of transi tion, yet steadily advancing on the road to restitution of her economic life." A congress of food supply officials or ail Russia, called by Lenine to work out a plan of averting the worst effects of the threatened famine and to devise means for collecting the available foodstuffs, .has just closed at Moscow. Most of the speakers were pessmistic, according to the Moscow Bolshevik newspapers. It was shown that, because of the disorganized state of transportation, grain would rot in the fields in the productive reeions. while the cities would have to be put on snort rations, unless iooa could be imported from abroad. THUNDER SHOWER RESULTED IN MAN INVENTING SODAS Detroit, Mich., Aug. 6 A summer thunder shower 41 yeaTS ago resulted in the "invention" of the ice cream soda, according to Fred Sanders, Jr., of Detroit, whose grandfather, Fred Sanders, claimed the distinction of having discovered this American in stitution. Speaking of his grandfather's dis covery, Mr. Sanders said: "Forty years ago . the American people regarded ice cream much as the lily that could not be painted. At that time they 'took it straight.' Syrups were in general use in drink concoctions but the ice cream sundae and its many near relatives were un known. . Corbonated water was used by the soda, dispensers in a popular drink known as sweet cream soda Its chief ingredient was sweet cream, direct from the farm. "The thunder shower that brought a'bout my grandtfiather's discovery came in the summer of 1880. He .was conducting a soft vdrink parlor and the utor-m caused the sweet cream he had intended, for sodas to sou-r.

CtrtAiiirc tSSf BEAUTIFUL WIFE OF FAMOUS AUTHOR PROVES THAT WOMEN CAN DIRECT SCREEN PRODUCTIONS AS WELL AS MEN New Tork: Aug. 6 It used to be an old saying that the 'husband and wife couldn't both be inordinately bright. This seemed to be especially true where literary talent was in- volved. But Mrs. George Randolph Chester has proved that there is nothing to that notion. For the last 9 years Mrs. Lillain E. Chester has collaborated with her talented husband in all of his books and stories. It is the only case on record or an international author working in complete collabora tion with his wife. It will probably be of interest to thousands of readers to know that Mrs..- Chester aided her husband in writing the famous Wallingford stor ies. It now develops that Mrs. Ches ter put many of the peculiar., twists into the very original character of Blackie Daw." In one of her husband's stories there was a wealth of detail regard ing: the girl's dresses, and many read ers probably remarked that "no mere man could write all tnese aetaiis aooux a pretty girl's clothes." And it now develons that it was Mrs. jnester wno supplied the feminine touches. When George Kanaoipn jnester decided to picturize his stories several years ago and learn the technical part of the silent drama Mrs. Chester also decided to take up scenario writing and the making of movies in the studios. Like her husband she be came a pupil in screen ana studio fechniciue. and they have several screen successes to their cerdit. While American women are enter ing all fields of activity and enroll ing in positions formerly held sacred to mere men, it has been left to Mrs. Chester to set up a new record for women in motion pictures. In collaboration with Mr. Chester she recently wrote the stoQr and scenario of theHfinal episode of the Wallingford series.. Then she accompanied her husband to a California studio and with him personally directed the screening of the story. Mrs. Chester carefully guarded every detail, as if she were rearing a child instead of a celluloid classic. . After all the scenes were "shot" she accompanied her husband to a New York studio, and with him is now titling, editing and cutting their film. "Mrs. Chester and I work together is one person," says her distinguished husband with enthusiasm. "We make an ideal combination for we really collaborate, and she should have the credit for it." BOSTON GETS ANOTHER PARK Boston, Aug. 6 Another spot closely associated with the earlv his tory of the Massachusetts Bay colony has been acquired by the city of Bos ton for park purposes. It is the Scott estate in Dorchester where was erected what is said to have been the first free school. On the plot of ground which marks the Intersection of Kast Cottage, Pleasant and Pond streets, Dorches ter residents of 150 years ago held Iheir town meetings. Nearby, ac cording to records, some of the first colonists in this vicinity pitched their tents after landing at what is now known as Savin Hill .Beach. Later settlers deposited their valuables on the lot each night, leaving them un der protection of an armed colonial soldier, and returning for them early the next day. FUEBLO'STEEL CONCERf BUILDS HOMES FOR DESTITUTE Pueblo, Colo., Aug. 6 Employes o the Colorado Fuel and Iron Com pany who lost their homes in the re cent floods that swept this city and vicinity will be enabled to secure new homes as a result of action taken here, by the local -managers of the Rocke feller Steel Works. Announcement has been made that a contract for the erection of fifty modern six-room homes has been let, and it is expected that many more employes of the company will take advantage of the offer of the manage ment in the- near future. The homes will be built on ground owned by tbei steel company and sold to the employes at actual cost, it is announced, payment being made over a long period of years. Each new home will be designed and constructd according to the desires of he prospective owner. The new houses will be located with- - in easy access' of the main gates of the Minnequa plant of the steel company. Until their new homes are com pleted many victims of the flood who are employed by the C. F. & I. will , continue to be cared for at the com pany's camp, established immediately , following the .flood disaster. , RYE ACREAGE INCREASES. Mrs. Daniel H.
