DRINK CATERERS AROUSED
Enforcement of Ordinance Brings
Storm of Protects.
Police enforcement of the new soft
drink, ordinance la a manner too rig'
orous to suit the manufacturers and
retailers of the commodity, has
brought a swarm of protests and
complaints Into the city attorney's
office.
Under the provisions of the ordi
nance, all fruit juices and combina
tions of fruit juices with the sole
exception of cider, most be bottled
and kept for sale In glass containers,
the old wooden keg being barred.
When the ordinance was passed,
the councilmen agreed that a stay of
execution would be granted to the
old wooden keg, for a time sufficient
to allow the manufacturers to obtain
glass containers from the east. The
soft-drink men complain that this
agreement has meant nothing in the
lives of the policemen, and that they
are making the rounds, tapp'ng kegs
with suspicious sticks, and ordering
them out.

TJie rext meeting of the board of
directors of the Visiting Nurse asso
ciation is set for Tuesday, February

rubbing, talcum powder and many
other articles and is always ready to
carry out doctors' orders or take the

SCHOOLS TEACH MORALITY
SI7FERIXTEXDEXT TELLS MIX
ISTERS OF COURSE.
Konesty and Generosity, Together
AVith Good Sportsmanship, Fun
damentals of Movement.
Teaching of morality in the public
schools of the city was outlined by
Professor D. A. urout, superintendent
of schools, at a meeting of the Pres
byterian Ministers' association yes
terday in First Presbyterian church.
"Study of the Bible has not been
a prescribed- course in our public
schools for nearly 100 years," said
Professor Grout. "We are teaching
right . moral purposes, however,
through three methods. The first is
by providing stories for class reading
in which honesty, generosity and
other moral qualities are presented
in a way that will affect pupils
through their own intelligence and
Judgment. This method is naturally
of particular benefit in the grada
schools.
"The second plan is through en
couraging games and recreation.
This satisfies the natural desire for
play and teaches the lessons of good
sportsmanship.
"The third method Is through per
son'al contact with teachers. This is
done by having a dean of girls in
school, and vice-principals who act as
deans of boys.
Professor Grout's address was fol
lowed by an open discussion of t'
subject by ministers present.

Judge Wolvertou in the case of the
Knight Adjustment company, a col

terday. A fine of $100 was imposed
upon the company when plea of guilty
was entered by counsel for the de
fense. Similar Indictments against
J. I. Knight and Georgia M. Knight,

United States Attorney Humphreys
in outlining the case declared that the
collection of claims by deception is
fraud although the claim itself is le

of a test, for the method is said to
be in extensive use by collection
agencies. Indictments charged use

"Mark you this prophecy," he said,
"if America makes good and enforces

But if America fails civilization at
this supreme moment, the cause of

that England herself would by dry
