.Alimony and the Custody of
Their Yobbp Son.
BAN FRANCISCO, June 20. Superior
Judge Hebbard has concluded his estima
tion as to how much permanent alimony
Henrietta Sutro Is entitled to from the
wealth of her husband, Edgar E. Sutro,
son of the late Adolph Sutro, millionaire
Mayor of San Francisco and builder of
the Comstock tunnel. She sued him for
divorce on a charge of Infidelity several
weeks ago, "but the court decided against
her because she lad allowed Sutro's of
fenses to go unnoticed for seven years.
The husband then sought decree on cross
complaint, charging Jls. Sutro with de
sertion, but he, too, was nonsuited, be
cause he was not a resident of the state.
He Is. now a resident of Portland, Or- The
couple were thus compelled to remain
husband and wife, although both had
grounds for divorce -and each wanted a
decree. The only question left for de
cision was as to how much money the
wife was entitled to for support.
Sutro has a one-sixth interest in the es
tate of his father. His share Is estimated
to be worth about $350.0&0, but some years
ago he gave his wife property which
brings an Income of about J200 a month.
Taking these facts Into consideration,
and also the fact that Mrs. Sutro has the
custody and support of their 14-year-old
son during the lad'e minority, the court
awarded Mrs. Sutro alimony for life of
$123 per month and the sum of $300 counsel

where they are enabled to construct their
own electric switchboard which supplies I
mo necessary current io any pan oi ins
room, or, perhaps, build a dynamo. They
have done that more than once.
On the top floor Is the forge room, with
ita circle of anvils. . On one of the lower
floors is the wood working shop, where,
in the senior year the boys do advance
work with the turning lathes, molding,
casting or cabinet work, and construction
work in carpentry, among other things.
Sometimes the boy calls forth his creative
spirit and fashions a Morris chair, a table,
a hand-carved wooden vase, or an article
showing equal skill, out of the rough ma
terial before him. These articles are
placed on exhibition yearly, for the bene
fit of friends and relatives, and are also
kept filed away on shelves, each bearing
the workman's name, so that It may be
seen how far the boys have progressed
during the year.
There are other shops and classrooms
no less Interesting, which would take con
siderable space to. describe. The work
carried on in all of them is marked by
the constant attention and earnestness of
the pupils In what Is before them. There
Is no disorder anywhere, but each boy
handles his tools as if what he Is doing
at the moment is the immediate object
of his life.
Work of a Jevriah Technical School
WhoHc Graduates Succeed.
New York Evening Sun.
The Hebrew Technical Institute has now
been In existence In New York nearly 20
years, and In that time it has laid the
foundation of a thorough technical train
ing in many Jewish boys boys whose suc
cessful business careers testify to the
value of what the institute did for them
in opening wide various avenues of em
ploment, in laying the groundwork which
ultimately secured for them positions as
skilled artisans, pattern-makers, electrical
and mechanical engineers, draughtsmen
or in other branches. Some of these boys
hold places today where they draw lucra
tive salaries. Several of them earn an
annual income of $5000. One boy only a
few months out of the school, who was
not yet 20 years old, was set over college
graduates In one of the important me
chanical bureaus of a great railroad. A
prominent foundry, deprived of the ser
vices of one of the. school's graduates as
foreman in Its pattern shop, sought ea
gerly among the institute's boys for some
one to fill his place. Many other instances
of a like nature, showing the influence of
the school, might be mentioned.
The school stands at Si and 36 Stuyve
eant street, which Is on the lower East
Side of town, and half of Its boys come
from the tenement districts Immigrants
or native born. Nearly all the rest come
from the two Jewish colonics uptown.
Lately, however, the school has been made
nonsectarlan, and many gentile names
may be found on its rolls.
The school was established in a very
small way in November, 1SS3, and "Is
supported by the voluntary contributions
of members of the Jewish community,
aided by an annual donation from the
Hebrew Benevolent and Orphan Asylum."
For the last five or six years It has occu

The school's course extends over three
years, and the last one is devoted to spe
cializing, the boy spending most of his
time on whatever subject he elects to
pursue after he leaves school.
In the metal working shop, for Instance,

Washington Law Confesses
to Offense Charged.
OLYMPIA. Wash., June 20. (Special.)
The Supreme Court today ordered that a
writ of habeas corpus be issued for Fritz
Dletrlck, the Spokane gambler, who Is
under conviction and sentenced for vio
lating the new law making the conduct
ing of gambling resorts a felony. The
writ is made returnable July 10 at 10 A.
M. The petition for the writ was present
ed without argument, and the petition in
itself does not reveal the point of attack
on the law.
The petition admits that Dletrlck com
mitted the offense charged in the in
formation, that of conducting a stud
poker game, but alleges that the only
punishment that can be legally Imposed
Is the fine provided in the old law.
Dletrlck is the victim picked out for
testing the constitutionality of the law
by the gamblers of the entire state, who
are said to have put up a purse to recom
pense him for his incarceration. That he
will at least earn a part of the purse Is
assured by the refusal of the Supreme
Court today to grant at this time his ap
plication that he be admitted to bail.
The Sheriff of Spokane County is re
quired to retain Dletrlck in his custody.

Ever since the advent of the dog the
little lads have been subject to Irritating
sores and eruptive outbreaks on their
soft skin, until the fox terrier's arrival a
condition utterly foreign to their tender
bodies. This unusual but prolonged plight
finally provoked a close examination as to
causes, which was productive of a discov
ers. The dog had a sore foot when he
first entered the home, -which never thor
oughly healed; in fact, it became an open
wound that refused to yield to ordinary
remedies. One day the dog was "lost";
he had been turned over to a veterinary
surgeon, whose well-applied chloroform
quietly produced a painless transmigra
tion. In the several weeks Intervening since
the sad loss of their playmate the little
fellows have resumed their former purity
of cuticle, not a mark of any kind re
maining to mar the snowy freshness of
their skin. The conclusion Is inevitable
and the moral equally plain for all pa
rents to heed. But lest this lesson is not
sufficiently obvious, read the warning
sounded by the Board of Education of
Chicago along similar lines. Co-operating
with the Health Department, it Is dis
tributing the following notice In all the
public schools of that city:
"There is danger in pelting stray dogs..
Hydrophobia Is increasing throughout the
city, and many of the dogs running at
large are afflicted with It. Dogs and cats
frequently come from rooms where scar
let fever, diphtheria and other conta
gious diseases exist, and can transmit
germs to children who fondle them."
Superintendent Bodlne, of the depart
ment of medical inspection, affirms that
he knew of a shaggy dog in one neighbor
hood which, according to reputable phy
sicians, was a means of transmitting con
tagion until It "disappeared." Dr. Rey
nolds, City Health Commissioner of Chi
cago, says cats often spread contagious
diseases, especially scarlet fever.
Cases of the transmission from one
family to another of scarlet lever are
well authenticated. A child recovering
from this disease may play with a cat,
which later may be fondled by other chil
dren to the peril of their health. From
the high authority of the New York Med
ical Journal is the following pronounce
ment bearing on the foregoing:
"The dog Is an unclean animal. Nd
matter how high his pedigree, he will
delve in garbage; indeed, he will thrust
his snout into all sorts of filth, and then
caress his master or mistress by licking
him or her -with his tongue. Not only is
he the solo bearer of the Infection of
rabies to the human race, but often he
conveys to children the hydatid tape
worm, and from that parasite arises the
hydatid cyst that so frequently proves
fatal. Better -would It be to extermi
nate all dogs than run the risk of rabl
etlc Infection of a human being In a
single instance that Is to say, if wo
confine our attention to city dogs, for
we are quite willing to concede the serv
ices of the country dog far outweigh the
dangers to be apprehended from him."
All of which is sad reading to those
who have pet dogs and cats In their
homes, but perhaps it Is better to eac
rlflce them than the children.

Disappearance of Tito Americans
LOS ANGELES. CaL. June 20. The re

lieved here, however, that Brown him
self was murdered weeks ago, that his
murderer then masqueraded as Brown
and killed Swensen upon the latters ar
rival In Sonora. ,

telegram from Altar, Sonora, stating that
It was reported there that Brown had
killed Swensen. The telegram stated
that Brown Is being held for the crime

Bnt One of the Gayly Painted. Ve
hicles of 1863 Now Extant.
'A. great many people hve asked me
what became of the old omnibuses which,
in the days from 1S53 to ISO, before
Pennsylvania, avenue was paved, and
prior to the advent of the horse car, used
to haul a monopoly of the passenger and
transfer business of the capital," said
a second-hand vehicle dealer., "In those
day the city was as full of omnibuses
as it Is now of trolley cars, and old resi
dents have often wondered what becamo
of those gaudy, gayly painted concerns,
capable ofho!dlng 40 people. "vThen the
street-cirt took their place they were
torn up for the materlil In them, until
by 1SS5 there was Just one out of the
several hundred left standing In an old
stable outside the city. There It remained
neglected and forgotten, until the Spanish-American
war, when a local drayage
and transfer firm heard of it, and pur
chased it for a song.
"The firm used It to carry passengers,
soldiers, officers and visitors between
the city and Falls Church and Camp
Alger. It was a lucky hit, for the old
omnibus is today the largest vehicle in.
the city, and will accommodate 53 peo

firm, at the end of the war with Spain,
decided to keep it, and since then has
used it for small picnic parties. It Is out
