Crowe, Scott and the Mount Mystery
Here la new portrait of State'!
Attorney Robert E. Crowe of Cook
county, Illinois, who took personal
charge of the Investigation of the
mystery surrounding the death or dis
appearance of Lelghton Mount of
Northwestern university at Evanston,
111., when he saw that his subordinates
were getting nowhere. He conducted
Inquiries on three lines of theory:
murder, manslaughter and suicide.
None of the Inquiries came to any
thing; the mystery simply grew dH;p
er with the results of each day's Inves
tigation. Then President Scott added to
the mystery by offering In the name
of the university a reward of $10,000
for the person or persons furnishing
Information, "not already In the hand
of the state authorities, that leads to
the Indictment and conviction of any
person or persons for the. murder sf
Lelghton Mount; that leads to' the In
dlctment and conviction of any per
son or persons for manslaughter In connection with the death of Lelghton
Mount resulting from a class rush ; that leads to. a determination by inquest
that Lelghton Mount committed suicide ; that leads to the discovery of Lelgh
ton Mount alive and his return to Evanston, 111."

Woman "Financial Wizard" in Gotham
Here Is a portrait, Just taken, of
Mrs. Myrtle & Hayes a "financial
wizard," who has set all New York
to talking about' a "second Cassle
Chadwlck," a "feminine Ponil," and
11 that sort of thing. The largest
guessers also talk about a "$3,000,000
fraud." Anyway, Mrs. Hayes has been
Indicted on a charge of forging the
name of Charles M. Schwab, the "steel
king," to one of 17 notes totaling $325,
000. It appears that Mrs. Hayes pulled
the purse strings of hard-headed busi
ness men' by the naive statement :
"You. know 'Charley' SchwabT He
Is my dear friend. He'll back me for
any amount. Why, look at this."
- And thenshe displayed one of two
agreements the one of December 17,
1022, In which "C. M. Schwab" agreed
to stand behind her to the extent of
a cool million, and another in which
the Bethlehem Steel chairman wrote
that Myrtle B. Hayes was "good" for $1,150,000. Mr. Schwab said that after
word of the $25,000 note reached, him, he cut short his European trip and
hastened back to America. He met Mrs. Hayes In his office and she frankly
confessed she had forged his name to the note, Mr. Schwab said.
Friends said Mrs. Hayes had at one time worked in Chicago as buyer for
a department store. She married C. H. Hayes, a "gentleman farmer" from
Pigeon Cove. Me., after divorce from Dr. Albert T. Graf of Los Angeles.

The Masters of Cray's Inn bench
havo called to the English bar James
M. Beck, solicitor general of the Unit

are quite excited about it. Sharp dif
ferences of opinion and equally sharp
criticism are being voiced by barris
ters of the four English Inns of Court
In London. A large section of Eng
lish barristers take exception to the
fact that for the first time In the his
tory of the country, a foreign lawyer
hag been admitted to practice here
without having to go 'through any of
the formalities for entrance; . which
take three years-to complete.
It Is also being pointed out not
only that Mr. Beck has been admit
ted to the bar over the strictest of
all Jhe rules, namely, a barrister must
satisfy the benchers that he' has not
practiced law as a solicitor, a condi
tion which would keep out Mr. Beck,

ters when they have come front those states In which the professions of bar

Solicitor General Beck will argue a case for the United States before the
Privy Council in London In July. No foreign barrister has been permitted to
argue a case before the Privy Council, and when that bery Informally con ski

Nelirmlah was a cupbearer to the
Persian king. While performing his
duty ns cupbearer, he learned of the
distress of ills brethren In Jerusalem
Having secured a leave of absence
from the Persian court and credentials
from the king, he Journeyed to Jerusa
lem. After resting three days without
disclosing his purpose to anyone, he
made a survey of the walls by night,
Having thus obtnincd first-hand Infor
mation, he called the representatives
of the Jews together and said, "Let us
build the walls of Jerusalem."
I. Preparation for the Building
The division of lnb.or In this project
shows Nehemlah s administrative obll
It y. A wise distribution of labor makes
difficult tasks easy. Note some out
standing features of this great work :
1. Stress . Laid Upon Indifference
(3:5). In administrative tasks It Is
Just that unfaithfulness should be
pointed out. Such action will be
warning to some and encouragement to
others. In that It shows, the Integrity
of the director.
2. Help Rendered by Women (3 :12)
Perhaps Shallum had no sons to aid
him. It was a fine thing for the worn
en to help, even In huildlng a wall,
when there were no men to do It.
3. Stress Laid Upon Earnestness
(3 :20). If one knows that his faithful
ness will be recognized, he will earnest
Iv pursue his tasks.
4. Every One Built Over Against His
Own House (3:10, 23, 28). No incen
tlve to exertion is quite so strong as
that which concerns one's own family,
5. Certain Guilds of Men Undertook
Certnln Work (3:8, 31, 32). Wise ad-
ministration sometimes calls for such
alignment of efforts. Men of the same
class and craft will surely work better
' II. Hindrances Encountered (4:1
1. Scoffing of Sanballut and Tobiah
(4:1-6; cf. 2:19, 20). The opposers of
God's servants usually begin by hurl
ing at .them shafts of ridicule. They
called the Jews a feeble folk and as
serted that the tread of a prowling fox
would break down their stone wall.
2. Conspiracy for a Sudden Attack
(4:7-9"). When the enemy saw that
the work was actually succeeding they
changed from ridicule to an attempt
to throw the workmen Into a panic.
When the enemy cannot succeed by
scoffing they resort to intimidation. A
S. Conspiracy With the Jews (4:10-
23). They sought by means of the
Jews from the outside to discourage
their brethren by showing that the
task was hopeless and that at any time
they were subject to a sudden and se
4. Greed and Oppression of the
Rulers (5:1-13). The Jews of that
day, like, the profiteers of our time,
took advantage of the poor and op
pressed them so that they mortgaged
their-land and sold their daughters
Into slavery. Nehemlah boldly rebuked
them for their crimes and ordered a
restoration to be made, exacting an
oath of them that they would fulfill
5. Plot to Take. Nehemiah's Life
(8:1-14). When Sanb'allat and Tobiah
failed In. every way they sought by
craft to get Nehemlah away that they
might kill him.
III. The Wall Completed (6:15-7:4).
So energetically did they pursue
their tasks that In fifty-two days the
wall was completed. When the ene
mies heard that In spite of all their
schemes the work was actually fin
ished they were dejected, for they per
ceived that fhe work was of 3od.
We may learn from this:
1. That God s children are assailed
by enemies, but in view of Romans
6:31 they should not fear. ,
2. That when attacked by enemies
we should pray (4:9). Their faith
was accompanied by wise precautlon
Ing: (1) Set a wrftch (4:9). (2) Men
were permitted to be with their fami
lies (4:13) and thus, would fight bet
ter. , (3) Half worked and half
watched, nil armed for battle (4:16).
'(4) They worked with srtord in one
hand (4:17). (5) They slept In their
clothes In readiness (4:23). Prayef
and faith are not slothful or Inactive.
