Five happy poes of Marian Lambert
W'aukegan, 111.. March 4
Tho results of a searching investiga-J
tion into the immediate past of William:

ac.piaii.tanccs in Madison, Wis.. hae!
been placed ju ihe hau ls of Mate's At-,
toruev Daily of Waukegan by Harry
Ikardsley, the Hum detective, who has
spent a week prying into the young
student's career in the university town.
Deardsley. it is believed by the
prosecution, has forged the. fnal links
in a chain of evidence which uill con
vict Orpet a the murderer of his
sweetheart. Marian Lainbert. in the
woods near I.ake Forest.
Among other things Iieard.-ley said
he established the fact that three
months ago Orpet went to f'arl Fischer.'

class at the I'niversity of Wisconsin

physician who would consent to per-,
form an abortion. (
The next day Fischer left word with
1'harles Ha-ir,;er. the drug clerk who'
afterward told of having sold llrpet a
tuo-ounce little, that he had done as
"Tell Orpet."' he said, according to
the detective, "that have a doctor
who will fix him up.'"
When Ha-siner wa questioned in
the office of ( hief of Police Shaugh
nessy' at Madison lieardsley asked for
the name of this physician.
Doctor' Ifame Kept Secret.
"You needn't tell that,-' Chief
Shaughnessy interrupted, hastily, and
so the doctor's name was not learned.
''This physician was not the only
one.' said Deardsley. "For some,
time, 1 found. Orpet had been consult-1
ing several doctois in Madison, making
inquiries about abortion operations and
means to relieve the condition of a girl
in whom he was interested.

dents his confidants about his troubles
and talked with them repeatedly. With
them he used the Lambert girl 's name
openly. S-ores of the boys up there .

categorically that letters from Marian,
Lambert to "rpet were placed in
State's Attorney Dady's hands several
days ago. Daily has told James H.
Wilkerson, Orpet's counsel, that he haa
no such letters.
Neither Deardsley nor the state's
attorney would give any intimation of
what the letters contained. It i
largely on the existence of such letters
that the defense bases its hope of showing-
that Miss Lambert knew her con
dition was not serious, but deceived
her sweetheart into believing that it
was to persuade him to remain true to
"Those letters won't be given out
until the trial," said State's Attorney

Beardsley's admission. "The court
must decide whether or not we shall
have to turn them over to the defense.''
New York. March 4. A cer
tain New York physician today
told of a new way to make the
baby stop crying. The plan was
successfully employed by a lit
tle boy to whose lot it fell to
cure for his baby brother a good
deal. His mother marked the
unwonted silence of the infant
when brother was watching him.
so she peeked around the door
one day and saw how it was
done. Brother, it seems, waited
until the baby got his mouth
open to let out a howl and then
leaned over and blew down his
