NEW YORK HAS REAL
Max Goldstein Catches" Bomb
Throwers ln Act and Trails
' Them Until -Taken, ; ' ;
New York, Oct :S.-rThe east side,' al
ways producing some "eighth wonder,"
now has a real boy detective. Max
Goldstein Is his .name, and he actually
ran down end caused th arrest of two
tomb, throwers who bid caused the de
tectives of the Fifth avenue station no
end of vexation. The police sleuths were
alsturbed not so much by 1 th property
damage wrought' by th bomb men, but
y the threat of Commissioner Waldo
mat he would reduce them to the uni
form rank If they did not catch- the miscreants...-.
-y iv;:-,'i-: v -,.:.
. Max came to the - rescue and slnoe
then he has been the hero- of -the po
lice and the idol ot his neighbors. Max
is a real detective. He does .not look
like one. He wear. long trousers and
that 1 as near as he comes to the tra
ditional human blood-hound, in appear
ance. He is -19 years old, : but looks
only 16. wMax la only five - feet five
inch In height and therefore can never
aspire -to become a real policeman, but
he exactly fits the idea of a detective
that Mayor Oaynor wrote about in on
of hi many letter.- ' ' ,
The late mayor said that strapping
aix-f ooters , were poor detectives be
cause they, could be recognised any
where "Can't we get some little men.
even hunchbacks, on the force and make
detective of them?" he wanted to know,
But ' the six-foot regulation still holds
and Max cks never achieve the force.
Max's achievement - all came about
through hlacurioslty. He stood on an east
side corner ope night, and Bw two men
talking earnestly together. Max showed
that he waa a real Sherlock Holmes, for
he noticed that one of the men wore a
false.;; "goatee." - Soon they flipped a
coin. Y Jt rolled down the steps . of a
baaement " The . ' man without the
"goatee', went down after.lt and lighted
a match. . -' .- : -r,'i
It looked as though' he was looking
for a lost dime, but when, a few min
utes . later a ... tremendous explosion
wrecked ' th , buildings and brought
scared Italians from all th surround
lug tenements. Max knew that the man
with th match lighted a bomb. .: The
boy detective set out,- hot foot and over
took the two men he had seen. , Both
were, clean ahaven. but in t th light
from a store; window, Max saw that; one
Of the men had gum en his chin. .
Goldstein .'trailed the pair to a res
taurant where be saw ft them order
meal.?, Then ha ran juid called tie de
tectivea; 'Max: was given : the. credit
Since ' then the boy has done bothlnx
but look for ''clues" and he has found
them, too... II has aided the police to
arrent several bomb, throwers, and has
been, given a: permit to carry a pistol.
Max says that he, ."fears. for, his life."

.Washington, : .,Oct.-i- (I5..;- Becretai-y ,
Houston is' trying: out a rtcw stunt with
the Department of; ' Atrlculture. 1 He '
wants to popularize the government a :
work to aid farmers, y - -.
' The Immediate fruit of bis hew ptan
is that high brow, literature doesn't go
at the department any more. . Scientific
sharps who used to delight in flve-syt-
lable jaw crackers and revel In Latin ,
terminology for Insects that th farm-; ,
ers knej( as just plain bugs, are being
curbed. Plain United States language
Is taking the place- of scientific verbl-
agCi - Moreover,? the department bulle
tins have been "dressed up" with new
covers. Up to' the time Houston took
Sver the Job of bossing the Agricultural
epartment, "ll ' federal t employes
thought government publications ought .
to be fixed up in the same way a plain
cover and title page with no trimmings. '
They looked dull eve if they weren't.
But Houston has devised decorative lit
tie headings and tall-pieces -for the ag. .:
rlculturat bulletins.. It makes them
more like-the farmers' literature up-s
plied by .the s commercial , publiahing ,
firms. ; . ,,
Press Agent employed." ,. v
Moreover, Houston baa hired a presa
agent. Of course, he Isn't rarried on
the rolls under that, title, because con- '
gresa has an : antipathy for publicity
agent . He. is designated as the chief
of the informatmn bureau. His Job is .
to spread Information. He Is supposed
to keep newspapers full of little items
about the work of the department.
Houston himself) came out with a re
quest th other- flay for advice. He
wants farmers and their wives to tell
him how to, make his department more -valuable
to them. It was a happy -thought
that inclusion of th farmer
wife. ' - ; , . . . ' w,v ,
! That Is popularizing a dry-as-dusf de
partment, and putting Unci Sammy,
atrong with the ladies and Incidentally
making it possible to have a- lot of vot
ing support either by way of the would
be voters themselves or through i their '
husbands, '; " T-"inV-?,-j-.uv" r:-.
But that. Isn't all. Secretary Houston ,
Is nqjilker. ' He Isn't currying for favor.
Bather he is altruistic' :. ' -.
Now here' John Jones out in Todunk
Creek, yH employs a lot of men. Maybe
they're working long hours and appar
ently not producing quite the result that .
John expected. Right there, the de
partment of agriculture steps in. You'r
working them beyond the point of max
imum efficiency, : says a bulletin made
upUn attraeUve 'and readable faslylon."
Then Jt sUrta to prove why and, where
fore. In simple, direct language.' with
ample illustrations proved to a mathe
matical , nicety, the bulletin ' demon-,
strates to John that he could-really ac
complish' mora r if . he put a scienUfic
system Into bis day's work. '
And then there's Bill-Smith out In
the Lost Creek region. The insects are
eating up his trees and crops.
Again Secretary Houston comes to th.
rescue. He doesn't preach. No, he sends
out another pamphlet called the Weeklv '
Letter to Crop Correspondents. It makes
an appeal such as "How the farmer can
use the facilities of the United States
Department of Agriculture" and pro
ceed to let BUI Smith know that he bss
a great big friend down in Washington,
who wants to see the crops flourish and
hav Bill prosper. ., , , ,.
t Uncle Sam score again, and gets a
lot of friends. ,,. , ,
On more thing Unci Sam Isn't en- "
tlrely atisfied with , his effort. He
want to get right close to the farmers'
hearts, so he's nlanhinr to nuhlixh -
magazine pictures and stories with a
un-eui lesson, out aDove ait else, pop
ular with bis country cousins.
