CENTERS IN BERLIN

BERLIN, Dec. 27. (Special cable.)
Berlin is fast becoming the gloom
center of the globe. Vienna ?s dying
Kracefully, but Berlin is just going
to its end stolidly, worldly, unplc
turesquely and uninterestingly, steeped
in gloom. Many visiting Americans
have fallen victims to the all-pervading
atmosphere of depression after
the first few days' novelty and inter
est have worn off.
Many American business men who
arrived full of pep and breezy op
timism, expecting to make a quick
cleanup and get away, have found it
impossible to do any business at all
with Germany at the present low rate
of German exchange and with the
general unfavorable conditions. Others
have been held here weeks longer
than they ever expected to stay and
keep hanging on here, hoping against
hope that conditions for doing busi
ness may improve. Americans who
have come to Berlin to scout and in
vestigate German conditions almost
invariably have gained a pessimistic
Berlin Food "Worse Again.
Nature has abetted the general
gloom by providing nearly two
weeks of continuous dark gray
weather. Berlin's food, too, has waxed
worse again and The Oregonian cor
respondent has met quite a few Amer
icans recently who have complained
of stomach and intestinal troubles.
"Berlin is as cheerful as a funeral,"
said one American visitor recently,
and transient Americans Invariably
display enthusiastic joy at the pros
pect of a speedy departure.
While Americans who have nothing
to worry about except to get a pass
age back home are affected by the
heaviness of Berlin's atmosphere, the
gloom of most native Berliners is so
thick you could cut it. Berlin is a
joyless burg. Even the alleged places
of amusement are short of the joy of
life. The Fallals de Danse and what
remains of Berlin's once famous night
life are sad and sorry shows.
Poverty Pronpect Loom.
Berliners with any money to spend
still left In their jeans are acutely
depressed by the passage of innum
erable new tax bills, including heavy
capital confiscation, which threaten
to reduce millionaires to the honest
protelariat. The prospect of practi
cal poverty clouds all moneyed minds.
Still soaring, the high cost of living
also causes depression, and even well-to-do
Germans are worrying over the
hopeless problem ot making both ends
meet. Most Berliners realize at last
that hard times have come to stay and
their view is that the near future
will be black.

"CONNIE" MEYER IS BRIDE
Famous Diving Champ Weds Lou
C. Dressier at Vancouver.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Dec. 27.
(Special.) Just why so many cou
ples desiring to marry come to Van-
couver to have the ceremony per
formed has never been satisfactorily
answered, but no doubt in many cases
Prominent persons, divorcees, and
others, desire to escape publicity in
tliclr home cities. (
An Oregon law sends quite a num
ber, birt this is a minor reason. Many
persons of prominence In their home
communities come to Vancouver every
year to be married for various rea
sons. Perhaps the best known person in
the northwest to be married here dur
ing the past week was Mrs. Constance
Meyer, for several years fancy diving
champion of the United States. Mrs.
Meyer and Lou C. Dressier, 30 years
old, were married here December 23.
The ceremony was performed by
Cedric "Hap" Miller, justice of the
peace of Vancouver, and quite as well
known here as an athlete as Mrs.
Meyer. He was the famous half-back
and captain of the University of
Washington football team when
Dobie was at his best as a coach. The
witnesses to the marriage were Dr.
and Mrs. S. S. Skiff.
In getting the license, Mrs. Meyer
gave her age as legal.

Robbers With Auto Who Tack;

Although they displayed more than

last evening out on the east side,
found they had tackled more than
their match. Beaudoin sacrificed $9
in cash to the highwaymen, but re

The hold-up occurred about 7
o'clock when Beaudoin, who lives at
670 East Thirty-third street north,
was walking on Thirty-third street

a machine at the curb and shortly
afterward was confronted by a highwayman-
from up on the terrace above

on the sidewalk, where they proceed
ed to go through his pockets.
A quick search disclosed $! in cash,
which the men appropriated. When

up the bank into some bushes, where

In an effort to find him. After a few
minutes' search the two men returned
to their car and drove away, while
Beaudoin went to the nearest house
and sent in a call to the police. Up to
a late hour no arrests had been made.

POISOX'S EFFECT DESCRIBED
Death and Blindness Main Result
. of AVood Alcohol as Drink.
NEW TORK. Dec 27. (Special.)
Dr. S. Dane Hubbard, acting director
of the health department's bureau of
industrial hygiene, today described
the nature and effect of wood alcohol
as follows: Wood alcohol Is a color
less liquid and in a highly refined
state has but a slight odor and no
taste. The Jess purified form pos
sesses a nauseating odor. While it is
tasteless, it does, however, produce
a burning sensation.
Its legitimate uses are as a fuel,
as a solvent in varnishes, and as a
denaturant. that Is, as an agent Jn
making grain alcohol unfit for drink
ing purposes. It is also Improperly
used in the preparation of hair dyes
and tonics, toilet waters and flavor
Ing extracts, as well as medical prod
ucts by some unscrupulous druggists
The symptoms produced on taking
wood alcohol are the following:
Nausea, vomiting, violent headache,
vertigo, coma and amblopla (blind
ness), of varying degrees.
The chemical formula for wood al
cohol Is CH30H. It is chemically
known as methyl alcohol, sometimes
as wood alcohol. Technically it
known as Columbian snarits, standard
wood spirits, coloniaT spirits, union
spirits, eagle spirits, Hastings spirits
and acetone alcohol.
The mode of elmination Is by the
lungs, kidneys and skin. The small
est dose known to have had disastrous
results Is one consisting of two ten-
spoonfuls, the result being total blind
ness. Another instance Is that of five
men, each of whom consumed a tum
bler full. Of these two died within 24
hours, one lost the vision of one eye
and was partially blinded in the other
and two recovered, due possibly to
the elimination of the po.son by vom.
Of 720 cases recorded at Baskerville,
490 died and 90 became totally blind.
In 85 cases vision was impaired, 6 to
10 becoming blind temporarily, and 31
recovered. No results were statistic
ally given in 100 cases. The mortallty
in terms of percentage is thus about
33 per cent, total blindness 12 per
cent, impairment of vision 13 per cent
and recovery 4 per cent.
INCOMING SHIPS WATCHED
Regulations to Prevent Intoxicants
From Entering U. S. Are Rigid.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 27. Stringent
regulations were issued today by the
treasury to prevent Intoxicants from
entering the country from ships arriv
ing from foreign ports.
Liquors properly listed as sea stores
must be placed under seal by the
boarding officer of the customs ser
vice and kept sealed during the entire
time of the vessel's stay in port. No
part of such stores may be removed
from under seal lor any purpose
while the ship is in United States
waters, the regulations state, which
denies to foreign crews the ration cf
wine served with meals on some ships
under other flags.
J5jLCMiiva Uauor storoa, n longer
being dutiable, are subject to seizure.
Liquors properly carried may be
returned to a foreign port in the ves
sel changing from the foreign to the
coasting trade, or may be transferred
under supervision of the customs of
ficials from a vessel in foreign trade,
delayed in port for any cause, to an
other vessel of the same line or
Customs officials are not greatly
concerned over the possibility of
smuggling large stores of liquors Into
the country and the new orders are
believed to close the last hole through
which Intoxicants might reach domes
tic consumers. With all liquid re

there would be small opportunity for

A Home Cure (hrn by One Who
In the spring of 1 803 I was attacked
by Muscular and Inflammatory Rheu
matism. I suffered aa only .those who
have It know, for over three years. I
tried remedy after remedyv and doctor
after doctor, but such relief as I re
ceived was only temporary. Finally I
found a remedy that cured me com
pletely, and It has never returned. 2
have given It to a number who were
terribly afflicted and even bedridden
with Rheumatism, and It effected a
cure In every case.
I want every sufferer from any form
of rheumatic trouble to try this mar
velous healing power. Don't send a
cent, simply mall your name and ad
dress and I mill send It free to try.
Vfier you have used It and It has proven
itself to be that long-looked-for means
of curing your rheumatism, you may
send the price of It. one dollar, but, un
derstand. I do not want your money
unless you arc perfectly satisfied to
send it. Isn't that fair? Why suffer
any longer when positive relief is thud
offered you free? Don't delay. Write
