Evelyn Mack, 14, Witness,
Makes Escape.
Wonicn's. Division of Police

; Has being held at the woman's- pro
tective division of the police bureau
as a witness against C. W. Beaver,
former patrolman, whom she had ac
cused of having committed a serious
statutory offense, made her escape
from an operative of the division at
5:45 o'clock on last Wednesday night,
according to information which was
divulged yesterday.
The fact that the girl had made her
escape was withheld from the public
and the newspapers until it was ac
cidentally discovered yesterday morn
ing. The case of Beaver Is now being
investigated by the grand jury and
a report is expected possibly next
Tiresday. according to Deputy District
Attorney George Mowry. In case the
girl Is not again found her absence
will" seriously hamper any charges
which the state might wish to bring
against the former policeman.
It was while she was returning
from the Baltimore lunch where she
had dinner in company with Mabel
Schroeder, aged 17, who was also be
ing held at the protective depart
ment a boy, 9, and a girl 13 that
the Mack girl and Mabel Schroeder
made their escape from an operative
of the protective department. The
escape was made at the corner of
Third and Oak streets, only a block
from the entrance to the police sta
tion. Girl Kseape on Street.
The account of the escape as re
lated by Mrs. G. J. Frankel, super
intendent of the protective depart
ment, is that the two girls broke
away from the operative and ran
.south on Third street when an auto
mobile cut in ahead of the party at
the corner of Third and Oak streets.
The automobile caused momentary
confusion because of the fact that it
narrowly missed running down the
little boy and the operative was com
pelled to jerk him back out of harm's
The two girls, in the opinion of
Mrs. Frankel, had probably planned
an escape, in case the opportunity
should present, while they were at
,lhe restaurant. Mabel Schroeder, ac
cording to Mrs. Frankel, had been in
the hands of the department only a
f-w hours when she made her escape
The police know little about her.
Mrs. Frankel denied a report that
the girls were picked up by the auto
mobile which passed at the time or
that there was any evidence of any
outside assistance' in securing their
escape. She said that the passing

-one there.
Mack Cilrl Found in Hotel.
Evelyn Mack was first picked up
by the women's protective bureau at
the Stewart hotel after she had been
missing from her home in south
Portland for four months-. Following
her arrest she made charges of a
. serious statutory character which re--suited
in the arrest of Patrolman C.
W. Beaver, former member of the
emergency souad. Ho was held to
answer to the grand jury a week ago
yesterday by Municipal Judge Ross
man following a hear'ng in which
the name of another member of the
police force, W. It. Wood, was men
tioned in collection with the case.
Wood, however, was yesterday ex
onerated from blame at a meeting of
ine ponce etticiency board. The board
however, recommended that he be re
moved from the purity squad and
placed in uniform.
.Mrs. Frankel yesterday explained
efforts to keep the girl's escape from
-Uie public by declaring that in her
opinion a more successful search for
the girl could be conducted in that
manner. She said that the woman
operative who was in charge of the
Kiri ji me time o tne escape was
suffering a severe nervous strain as
i 4 result of the incident.
Matter la Kept "tulet."
Neither the detective bureau nor the
emergency squad was notified of the
escape of the Mack girl. In the ef

measures seemingly to conciliate the

Premier Clemenceau opposed any

finally said he would agree to such a

writing the final paragraph affirm

Clemenceau also remarked that, he

Just fifty years . ago this winter
Dr. Pierce gave to the world his
famous "Favorite Prescription"
for the distressing weaknesses and
complaints of women. For many
years he had been in the active
practice of medicine and his spe
cialty was the diseases of women.
Later he desired to give this to the
public, and he received a trade
mark protection from the United
States patent office for this medi
cine, which is an herbal, "temper
ance" prescription with all the
ingredients printed on the bottle
wrapper. In his every day practice in the early days he also used a tonic
and alterative for the blood, which was so universally - beneficial that
lie determined to place this medicine in the drug stores of the United States,
where it coukl be readily procured by the public. This he called his "Golden
Medical Discovery," which he had prescribed many years for the stomach,
irver and blood.. Both these medicines met with instant success, and during
the past half century have sold in greater quantities than any other proprie
tary medicines. Neither of Dr. Pierce's medicines contain alcohol and both
are herbal extracts of native medicinal plants. For the past fifty years forty
eight million bottles have been used by the American public, and they are
today the standard tonics for men and women. They are now put up in
tablet as well as liquid form, and sold by every druggist in the land. A trial
package can be obtained by sending 10 cents to Dr. Pierce's Invalids Hotel

Squeaking Brakes
can often be avoided by washing surface of brake
lining (glazed by oil and dirt) with kerosene or
gasoline. Generally, however, "squeaking" is
due to poor lining or lining attached with rivets
that are not countersunk.
Insist that Raybestos brake lining be properly
applied to your car with copper or brass rivets
correctly countersunk. Then you may demand

you dorit discourage
profiteering you en
courage it.
If you demand a square deal for yourself, make it
possible for everyone else to secui-e one.
Profiteering is merely "highbrow-bolshevism" ; to
remedy it make it impossible.
Dentists who combine to arbitrarily fix prices which
must be charged for their services are closely approach
ing the danger line, and whether it is done as a "tmst"
or as a "society" matters not. You are not obliged to
pay three prices in order to secure COMPETENT dental
service, nor should you be compelled to accept inferior
service because your purse is limited.
A sacrifice of "quality" for "price" is too great a
sacrifice, and happily is no longer necessary.
The strength of this dental organization, the skill of
this staff, the years of experience and prestige won by
this system, forever stand as a barrier between you and
the profiteer.
Y'ou do wrong to submit to extortion simply because
you can afford to pay whatever is demanded ; you wrong
yourself, wrong the man who cannot afford it and, last
but not least, you wrong the dentist who asks too much
by indirectly approving of his methods.
In this office we have practiced the golden rule along
with the profession of dentistry, for many years we
have saved our patients thousands of dollars, given
them the highest class dental work and made a fair
profit for our efforts.
. Next time your teeth need attention let us give you
an estimate. The saving will surprise and the work
delight you.
