SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1938 TOSf HUE IS STILL IEIL BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Invaders' Shadows Over China Drama, Mystery Locked In New Orleans Disappearance Years Ago NEW ORLEANS (UP)—New Orleans' mystery of the vanished bridal couple, a classic of the public administrator's office, has tinned a solution for a score or more years, according to Major A W i Newlin. • "To me the most dramatic anil mysterious of all talcs arising from this annual event was that "of the vanished bridal cmiple nnd the old trunk that contained their wedding presents," Newltn said. "Just hn«r IOJIK this trunk had been in storage was never ascertained, as it had been moved to the poydras branch of the Whitney bank when that structure was erected. It had been there 10 years when it was turned over to Die administrator. "It was found to be full of valuable wedding gifts, most of them purchased from exclusive jewelry firms here. The name of the de- po^tor had been lost, however; and nowhere could the full imine of the couple be discovered. The names or initials of the ctoners I also were on cards, but they were i of people I had never heard of, and unlisted in any directories. Offered at Auction '"It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do finally to offer the contents for sale." Newlin explained that the cmiple was sought in want ads locally and In major cities. / "My own belief is that this n' young couple stored their presents v after their marriage, went away on a trip, and both lost their lives in some disaster or epidemic during their honeymoon," he said. The broken threads of evidence found in forgotten bank boxes and vault rooms could -be woven into an interesting commentary on human nature, Newlin said, but admitted that the whole hodge-podge of persons who leave valuables mi- claimed for 10 years was too much for him. In -a bank box several years ago were found letters written to relatives by a 17-year-old boy in a northern prison during the Civil War. "Undoubtedly, historians would have paid for these documents," Newlin said. He explained lhat because of their personal nature, they were not offered for sale. Mill Not Censored "Evidently they had no censorship over ; riiall leaving the prisons, (for the publication of these letters at the time 'hey were -written cer- \ tainly would have meant his death," the administrator declared. Another interesting case was that of the "mysterious, heavy suit-case." The depositor, who had not claimed the bag for a decade or more, was discovered! in Canada. The storage fee was large, nnd lo this , was added the pro rata cost of the administrator's office. " "Just set the figure and I'll send you a check," the owner wrote to Newlin. He even sent his son lo reclaim the suit-case. "It turned out that the suit-case was filled with silverware." By night iis well us by day, the Japanese military rulers of Shanghai strive to impress the popul.xc wilh the formidable strength of the forces of oc-iijwiion, in an effort to check the reign of ierro launched by Chinese elements that rel'use to ace 1 ?'.)! defeat.

"See young . it's signed by ton" As early as 1746, the neighbors of young George .Washington entrusted the surveying of their fields and forests to the master of Mount Vernon. They could count upon his unswerving honesty. His narhe upon a map made it an authoritative document. A good name is no less important today. As you read the advertisements in this newspaper, you see the names of manufacturers and merchants who have builded their business success upon honest products. The very fact that they advertise speaks for their integrity. The store that stays in business has not only to get customers but to keep them year after year. Your good-will is worth too much to be endangered by inferior, unsatisfactory goods. Read the advertisements regularly. They will save you minutes and money. They serve as maps of good merchandise—signed with names which, like the name of Washington, have been tested by many and found completely trustworthy.
