CHICAGO. Aug. ,31. (Special).
Mrs. Pornlce poatrlce Rllllngs Pron
son, duughter of Mrs. Etta Ulllings, of
Marshfteld. Or., haa lost her husband
and $1,000,000 as the result of playing
This fact wss brought out today
through the filing of a suit by Mrs.
Killings against William Ryan, a
wealthy handbook agent, to recover
$10,000 of the fortune her husband
has lost, she alleged, through betting
on the races.
Mrs. Rronson, who was known here
as the "Auditorium Widow," blames
the race track for her divorce from
Colonel William O. Rronson, the Still
water, Minn., millionaire lumberman.
MANY WANT TO WORK
Numerous Inquiries have been re
ceived by Superintendent of City
Schools Toore from boys and girls lu
the county who are anxious, to at
tend school here and work while they
are being educated. The writers have
asked Mr. Toose to get posi
tions for them. There Is no question
as to the sincerity of the boys and
girls, and It will be Impossible for
them to attend school nnless they can
earn enough to, at least, pay their
boards. The superintendent requests
persons who desire help of thla char"
acter to communicate with him. The
giving of employment to these boys
and girls will not only enable them to
obtain educations which otherwise It
would be Impossible for them to get,
but will be of advantage to the em
ployers, who will be supplied with

HORSE LIVES WITH
Frederick Schafer. president of the
Schafer Lumber Co., of Molalla, Is
looking for a veterinarian, who can put
the vertebrae of a horse's neck, that
have been dislocated. In place and keep
them there. Mr. Schafer has worked
on the animal for several days, and,
although he has succeeded on num
erous occasions In getting the verte
brae In their proper place they will
not stay there.
The horse sustained the Injury
while tethering last Thursday at the
foot of the mountains where the own
er and several of his friends had gone
to hunt big game. When they return
ed they found the animal suffering
severely and a big lump on the side
of Its neck showed plainly what the
trouble was. The neck was pressed
Into place and the party started for
Molalla, but had not goTle more than
100 yards when there was a noise not
unlike that made by a fire-cracker.
The neck had slipped out of place
again. The operation of pressing It
Into place was repeated several times,
and, finally in his desperation Mr.
Schafer obtained another norse 10
take him and ls friends home. Since
then every effort has been made to
relieve the horse, without success.
The vertebrae are easily pressed Into
place, but they will not stay there.

URGED BY TAfT
PRESIDENT, HOWEVER, SAYS NA
TION MUST BE READY TO
GIVE AND TAKE ADVICE.
SENATE COMMITTEE IS ANSWERED
Judges Not Sufficiently Paid, Says Cx-
eoutive To Boston Bar Associa
tion Reforms Needed
BOSTON," Aug. 31. "Arbitration of
disputes between nations Is coming
slowiy but surely," said President
Taft in his address today before the
American Bar Assoiatlon. The Presi
dent briefly reviewed the proposed
general arbitration treaties with Great
Britain and France, and made It plain
that In bis opinion the objections
made to the treaties were Invalid.
The President declared emphatic
ally that there wss room for Improve
ment in procedure. In the . Federal
The Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court of the United States, he said,
had taken the matter in hand with
bis associates and the district judge.
and bad called a conference In Wash
ington, where they would formulate
new rules of procedure.
The President declared this to be a,,
great step In th direction of practi
cal reform. He said that there was
need of Increasing Judicial aalarles so
that "the best men of the bar might
be engaged for the various courts.
The President motored from Bev
erly, and when he appeared in me
convention hall he waa welcomed with
a hearty cheer. No formal introduc
tion., waa. spoken. President, Frrart
of the Bar Association, one or tne
largest men at the convention, merely
expressed his purpose to retire In
favor of a man who was bigger than
he In all dimensions.
Mrs. Tafl came with the President
on the 20-mile ride through the rain,
but stayed In the White House auto
mobile outside Huntington Hall, and
did not hear the speech. Immediately
after the address they motored back
The President aimed his argument
for the arbitration treaties at the Sen
ate foreign relations, which he aald
took exceptions to the part which
provides that the Joint high commis
sion shall determine whether a ques
tion is "Justiciable," and, therefore,
one to be settled by arbitration. The
committee held this part of the treaty
a delegation of powers of ine Senate,
the President said, and, therefore. It
