THE ADVANTAGES COUNTRY
CHILDREN HAVE OVER CITY
In its December issue the Woman's
Home Companion continues its cam
paign lor "better babies" by publish
ing in its Tegular department for "Better
Babies", an article entitled "How to
Make Babies Better" by Dr. Roger H.
Dennett, a New York physician who is
an authority on the care and treatment
of children. Following is an extract
from Dr. Dennett's article comparing
country children with city children.
"When I think of the advantages
which country children have over the
eity-bred child, I cannot help regret
ting that all children are not born in
equally healthful surroundings. The
country child without the slightest
effort can breathe fresh air night and
day. At night the city child may
breathe fresh air, such as it is, but in
the daytime, during the early years,
he must play upon the street alone,
er the mother must give up her house
hold duties and go with him to the
park. If the country mothers knew how
faithfully city mothers give their child
ren this daily airing, and knew what
a sacrifice it is to be taken away from
their household duties so many hours
each day, they would realize how for
tunate tbey are whea they can dress
their children and set them outside the
back door to play by themselves. The
Infant may sleep there undisturbed,
and the older child may play alone,

loses as a result. The merchants of this

successful newsdealer of that city, arc
proving themselves very useful to their
master. If the latter goes to lunch, or

for hint. "Rex," the Irish terrier,
perches himself on the stand and grips
between his teeth a big calabash pipe
pipe and a copy of a newspaper, while
"Brownie," his partner, takes up his
position on a little soap-box beside the
stand and holds on in his teeth a little

pennies. When a passer-by buys a
paper "Brownie" sits up to receive the

WIFE FOR LIFE
NEW YORK MAN DASHES CAR
BOLIC ACID ON HER FACE
New Ydrk, Nov. 18. Morris Fein
berg, a garment worker at No. 10.)
Goerck street, went to Jersey City
City yesterday afternoon determined
to effect a reconciliation with his wife,
fUchacl, from whom he had been sep
arated for three months.
When she left him, Mrs. Feinberg
went to live with her sister, Mrs.
Wyman, at No. 101 Morris street, Jer
sey City, and until three days ago saw
aothihg of her husband. Friday she
aoticrd a man lurking about the house,
and as he seemed familiar she looked
closer and discovered he was Feinberg.
Ha had turned up his collar to hide
Feinberg made no attempt to enter
the Wyman home that day, nor the
aext, although he was seen prowling
about several times. Nor did he ap
pear at the door until the Wyman's had
gone out to make a call last evening.
It later developed that he had stood in
the rain where he could watch the
place and had been soaked to the skin.
Shortly after Mr. and Mrs. Wyman
had departed Feinberg rang the bell
and the door w as opened by Marion Wy
man, eighteen years old. Demanding
to see his wife, Feinberg brushed the
girl aside and entered the parlor where
Mrs. Feinberg and Fannie Wyman,
thirteen years old, were seated.
"I want you to come home with me,"
Feinberg demanded, glowering at his
wife. "I want you to go along right
Mrs. Feinberg, thoroughly frightened
by the demeanor of her husband, pro
tested that she did not want to return.
She referred to the quarrels which made
it impossible for her to be happy with
him and begged him to permit her to re
main. "Then you won't come?'' Feinberg
"No," answered his wife. "I can't."
Feinberg glared ta the woman and
thrust his right hand into his pocket
of his soggy coat. For a woment he
seemed undecided, then he drew forth
a bottle and uncorked it. Instantly
the room was filled with the fumes of
full strength carbolic acid
Feinberg raised his arm just as the
two women darted for him. They
moved quickly, but were not quick
enough, and he hurled half the contents
upon his wife.
As the acid burned her neck, face
and arms and cut through her clothing
like a red-hot knife, the woman ut
tered a piercing scream and fell to the
floor. The two nieces also screamed,
for the acid had spattered over them,
searing their hands and arms.
The cries brought a score of neigh
bors from other apartments, and the
first entered the room just in time to
see Feinberg raise the bottle and gulp
down some of the acid. He fell writh
ing to the floor.
While neighbors bandaged the burns
of the wife and her nieces, passersby
who had heard the screams notified the
police and called an ambulance from
the City Hospital.
Husband and wife were taken there,
where it is said Feinberg has small
chance of recovery. Mrs. Feinberg
will be scarred for life. Feinberg was
placed under arrest.
FOUND IN CELLAR
DRUG CLERK, ARRESTED, SAYS
Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 18. The body
of Mrs. Mayme Greineisen, aged 35,
wife of Oliver Greineisen, in West End,
drug clerk, was found late today lying
face downward on a cinder pile in the
cellar of C. A. Givens' pharmacy, in
the Southsidc. Practically nude the
body was scratched and bruised. The
woman's left eye was discolored and
her hair dishevelled.
Michael L. Sweeny, a drug clerk cm
ployed in the Givens pharmacy, was
arrested. Sweeney, very nervous, said
Mrs. Greineisen had entered the phar
macy about 8 o'clock last night almost
nude and that he and "Tom Hawkins"
or "Harkins" picked her up and car
ried her into the cellar.
A search is being made for the
"Tom," Sweeney mentioned.
The authorities doubt the story told
by Sweeney as to Mrs. Greineisen's ap
pearance at Givens' pharmacy, claim
ing it impossible for a woman, almost
nude, to walk through a number of
streets on a Sunday evening without
The body was discovered in the cellar
through a remark alleged to have
been madeby Sweeney to a neighbor
"that a woman was in the cellar."
Thomas J. Hawkins, a city assessor,
questioned at his home tonight by detec

denied Sweeny's store of alleged con
nection with the case. Hawkins was

WILL ATTEND THE TEA
The program of t nV thirtieth annual
session of the North Carolina Teach
ers' Assembly, to be held in Raleigh,
November 26-29, has been, sent out to
the teachers of the State and it shows
that great things in the way of in
spiration, enlightenment and informa
tion are in store for all who may be
able to attend.
A perusal of the mere list of names
of the speakers on the program of only
the general sessions shows that these
meetings alone would more than repay
for this trip to Raleigh the teacher
from seaboard Currituck or from
farthest Cherokee. The first session
will be addressed by Governor Locke
Craig, State Superintendent J. Y. Joy
net,' Josiah William Bailey, and Presi
dent, J. D. Eggleston of the Virginia
Polytechnic In!tute, former .State Su
perintendent of Virginia, and one of
the greatest authorities on rural edu
cation in the country.
Experts have been secured in the
several lines of work to address these
departmental sessions and to assist in
the discussions. E. C. Branson and
J. D. Eggleston will both meet with
the County Superintendents, and Mr.
Branson will also meet with the 'High
School Teachers and Principals. Dr.
Kilpatrick wilt address both the Asao
ciation of Grammar Grade Teachers
and that of City Superintendents. Miss
FJlla V. Dobbs of the Department of
Manual Training of the University of
Missouri will meet with the Primary
and Kindergarten departments, and
Mr. Richard T. Wyche, editor of the
National Story Tellers' Magazine, will'
address the Kindergarten section on
story-telling. Besides these, many of
the most prominent educators of this
State will address the various associa
On the whole, the program will offer
such a wealth of profit, inspirational
informationa, and professional, as no
teacher in the State can afford to miss
who can possibly go to Raleigh. Spe
cial rates on all railroads will allow
the round trip to be made for one aijd
one-half the regular fare one way, plus
fifty cents. Only those who are paid
members of the Assembly will get the
benefit of the reduction.
