then continues northward through San

Business Follows Traffic.
The telegraph business, Mr. Gaunt
explained, is a fair guide to general
business. The simile of a barometer
can be better applied to it than to any
other business for, like a barometer,
it indicates a condition that is to come.

Diva Is In Artistic Voice for Recital of
Monday Musical Organisation.
Programme Wisely Selected.
Enjoyable songs in German, French
and English and with real vocal sun
shine in them marked the fine recital
given yesterday afternoon at the ball
room of the Multnomah Hotel by Mad
ame Jeanne Jomelll, soprano, under the
auspices of the Monday Musical Club,
of which organization she is a member.
The event was a first-class musical
social success and was largely at

and gave a recital which impressed all
who heard it with a new appreciation
of the manifold beauties of her expres
sive, sparkling singing. The pro

selected to please all tastes. Madame
Jomelli cleverly suited her voice to all
moods of the various numbers of her

Brahms' "Von Ewigr Liebe" was sung
with exquisite tenderness, while the

archness and liveliness that won in

Another big number was the aria

song, "j'al leure En Reve," was sung
with appealing pathos, and it pleased
In the English group the star selec

in singing MacDermid's "If Tou Would

Albany's Public Sale Days Popular.
ALBANY, Or., Nov. 1. (Special.)

Alleged Adventurer, in Jail,

'SCION' ROLE IS RETAINED
Iieon Gottlieb, In Extended Reply,
Attempts to Explain. Question-

Declared to Good Faith.
In an extended answer to the divorce
complaint of Clara Herschbergrer Got
tlieb filed yesterday, Leon Gottlieb,
alleged adventurer now in the County
Jaii under indictment on a charge of
passing a worthless draft for f 12 drawn
on a New York bank, declares that she
luretl him from Seattle to Portland and
made an appointment to meet him at
the Benson Hotel for the express pur
pose of causing his arrest, all of which
he volubly alludes to as disloyal and
unwifely conduct and quite undeserved.
At any rate, he says, this is the
only conclusion he can draw from the
fact that her uncle "appeared at the
same time- accompanied by detectives.
He wants the decree entered in his
While protesting in an early part of
his answer that he has nothing to say
about bis wife's character, Gottlieb
goes on to admit that she told him
after their marriage1 of a fatal in
fatuation for a married man and de
clares that she said she loved this man
much more than she loved him.
"Scion" Role Is Retained.
He says that his people in Austria
really are prominent and prosperous,
but that the European war has pre
vented funds reaching him and has
prevented him as well from returning
to his native country to volunteer his
services on behalf of his flag and
country. He insists that all phecks
passed by him which were -dishonored
in New York were issued on the sup
position that money had been deposited
to his credit in that city by relatives.
As to the rings which his wife says
she pawned he declares that she gave
him one of them and entrusted the
other to him to have taken to a jewelry
shop for alteration. He admits that he
did borrow some money from the
jeweler, leaving the rings as security,
but pleads the urgent, necessity of a
stranger in a strange land far away
from friends. He admits that "a gen-erous-hearted
merchant of Portland"
did give him a suit of clothes, but
denies the truth of his wife's charge
that he obtained this suit of clothes
by representing himself as a Hebrew,
whose all had been lost and who had
been forced to flee to America because
of the war.

Ataxia, Br. Henry O. Story says that drugs
have practically no beneficial effect in these
eases. He says that rest should be insisted
upon, and there should be no worries or
troubles. Plenty oi fresh air and moderate
exeroise must be insisted upon, but over
exertion is injurious. Tne use ot tcbacco
and aloohol should be strictly lorbldden,
and over-eating Is dangerous especially
when tne food Is poorly mastioated. The
lood must be of the most nourishing kind,
and the quantity and variety must bo
changed so that the patient will not lose his
appetite. The most annoying symptom in
these cases Is the pain which at times is
almost unbearable. Dr. Story says that he
