sent out. It was answered by a British
battleship that refused, to give Its name
or location and said It could not leave
its station. A physician on the vessel

THIEF PURLOINS LINGERIE
Gems Ignored and Treasured Gar
ments Stolen by Burglar.

woman, but nothing else of value was

They Have About Everything Mem

CHICAGO, July 24. The golf caddie
has never been looked upon as an in

land, but if the impresssion has gone
abroad that he is a person of small
consequence, it is erroneous as far as
the Glen View Club is concerned.
Angus S. Hibbard. chairman of the
club's caddie committee, issued a four
page leaflet to members recently de
voted exclusively to telling what has

efficiency; Red Crown, first in carburet
