DODGE CARBON DIOXIDE One Visitor Brought Apples, He Says?Don't Anger Them, His Advice. Special Dispatch to Thi N?w Yobk Hb??ld. New York ImM Burma, ) WashtngtM. D. C., March 11. { Antigonlsh and its ethereal visitor, which apparently has rone on a strike sinco the arrival of scientists and curiosity seekers, is backed Into insignificance when compared to the bodyless visitors who sometimes pick out Washington as a ghostly rendezvous. At least so says William H. Bryson, 1002 M street, N. W., amateur (host chaser of the District, who allows that j sines he flrst started studying the habits and mannerisms of spooks, five years | ago, he has been vlsted by twenty assorted ghosts, all of whom turned out with one exception to be first rate chaps. Bryson, who until recently was employed In the Government service In a seml-acientlflc capacity, has come out with the blanket statement that ghosts do have bodily characteristics and, contrary to popular belief, the hand clasp j of a spook Is warm and not. cold and clammy. . While the hunter after the habitat of the dweller In the world beyond hat made no effort to photograph his nocturnal visitors, he says he has held protracted conversations with many of his friends and relatives who have passed on. Such materializations usually occur about'midnight, Bryson says, but on two separate occasions he has been visited as early as 8 o'clock at night. Bryson agrees With those who have laid claim to being subjected to the weird pranks of the Antlgonlsh ghost with one exception. He says spirits do not exhale carbon dioxide. One Gkwt Carried Apples. It might be said that Bryson goes further in his research in the fact that he avers that one of the ghosts who paid him a visit about three months ago wore silk gloves, or what appeared to be silk and felt like that material, and was carrytng a few red apples. Asked if he had held any protracted conversation with his ghostly friend Bryson admitted he had and went so far as to say he ate a shady apple. The fruit had no flavor, he said, but Brysoil declares that a core was left and can produce it if occasion demands. On one occasion, Bryson said, his brother visited him and complained bit- | terly about fcondltlons on the Florida | sea coast where a self-respecting ghost | of the past decade could not enjoy him- i self. Whether it was the beach nymphs or the conditions regarding the Influx of foreign spirits from Scotland the ghost did not say, but he nevertheless said he would seek some other climc during the winter of 1923. The wandering ones also are subject to down and out periods in "shadow- j land," Bryson states, as one friend who i was rather opulent here came wander- j Ing Into his room with ghostly garments that had been patched in several places. | Don't Like Cold Reception. I* this connection the saying that , "you can't take it with you" may be errtitUous, as the spook gave every evi- < dface. according to the gpectator, of j being In need of a few shades of greenUtarkS to buy a new set of garments. Some of the shades that return and haorkt the scenes of their life are not Inclined to be kindly disposed, 'especially If one turns the covers over the j head and keeps mum until the ghost loses heart at the cold reception and blows off to some more hospltablo place. Another ghost that Bryson knew In the flesh, according t* the medium, appeared to him on one occasion and bitterly berated him for having lost a few dollars of his while on earth In a business deal. "In the future you will see me often," the spook Is said to have an nounced In the language of the beyond, and to prove It he came for six nights running. Asked If he ever became nervous at the nocturnal visitations, Bryson hastened to remark that he did not Invite the bodllesa ones to visit him, but did not put up 8l;rns that no spook traffic would be allowed. He qualified his last statement by saying that a prohibitive sign would only go to rile the departed ones and he would no doubt have his home cluttered up with a bevy of ghosts each night who nr.lght berate him for his unklndness. POLICEMAN TAKES JOB OF CATCHING SPOOK Elizabeth 'Ghost? Just Escapes Police Warrant. At the request of Mrs. Delia Meyera, 26 West Scott place, the police of Elisabeth, N, J., started an investigation yesterday to determine whether her home Is haunted or some one, having read of the ghost mystery of Antlgonlch, Nova Scotia, Is merely playing spook In an effort to frighten her. Mrs. Meyers says she heard a scratcTiTng noise at the door of her apartment about 2:30 o'clock this morning and on going Into the hall saw a ghostly figure stalking through the hallway. Mrs. Meyers wanted to swear out a warrant for the arrest of another tenant with whom she has had trouble, expressing her belief this Individual Impersonated the apparition to scare her Into moving. She declared the person's head was covered with a sheet. Refusing to take a complaint, Judge Otto advised the woman to get some one to assist her In capturing the "spook." Police Sergeant Reilly volunteered, declaring he spends his spare time in the study of psychic phenomena. "WIDOW" IS DIVORCED. Robert E. Hoffman of 320 Fifty-fifth street, Brooklyn, won an interlocutory decree of divorce In Brooklyn yesterday after he had produced evidence to show that Mrs. Lucy Hoffman of 555 Warren street, Brooklyn, had appeared in mourning at the funeral of George Heede in 1914 as Heede's widow. At the time Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman were living apart. The divorce suit was tried In the Brooklyn 8upreme Court. FACED WITH DEFEAT, DECLARES DR.PRINCE Says He Has Tried All Recipes for Luring Spooks Without Result. DRIVES OUT REPORTERS To Pursue Quest of Antigonish Ghost Alone in MacDonald House. Caledonia, Mill*. N. S.. Maroh 11 (By a member of the expedition}.?Dr. Prince to-day told me his Sabbath plana. There la no auch thing as "rest for me on Sunday In this moat mysterious quest," he said. "This Sabbath will be the most serious In my life. I am faced with defeat. "The world looks to me for a solution of these contlnentwlde human interest events. To-day I cannot provide fhat solution. To-morrow, Sunday, I hope to. I am in receipt of messages from all parts of the world offering suggestions. have tried all tho recipes for coaxing out spooks that I know and without result. Mary Ellen, a very extraordinary girl, an excellent medium for manifestations of an uncanny nature, such as have occurred, has failed me. The most 1 can get out of Mary Ellen la a laugh. "I have never seen her when she did not smile. That smile Is a smile of Innocence. I cannot think else?but she smiles, smiles, smiles. To me her foster mother Is an enigma. Her foster father is u puzzle. Yet I cannot think ill of them. They are Godfearing people, devout members of their church, and cheir honor and integrity is substantially lacked by the parish clergy of all donominations. I had hoped with the entire family in the house last night that there could have been a recurrence of the events which have been recorded throughout the world. 1 was nevermore DOBBS A Dobbs Sport Hat artistically com' bining Milan straw and faille, a homespun suit of exclusive Dobbs design and a soft handwoven scarf form a simple but graceful costume for the early Spring days Six-twenty Fifth Avenue 2 West Fiftieth Street eJay-Thorpe 24 FIFTY-SEVENTH STREET WEST PRESENT ADVANCED MILLINERY 0 for IMMEDIATE WEAR Original style themes have been developed and are being introduced by Jay-Thorpe that are marked apart and decidedly different from the usual.

"I have found It necessary to call upon every available human agency possible to help me solve this mystery. Humanity has failed, the spirit world has failed, and It may have to be written that I have failed. But not yet, not yet!" To-night is the last night that Dr. Prince will tolerate our presenoe in the house. To-morrow is Dr. Prince's own day. His plans are his plans. I have only an Inkling of tham. They are enough to whet my appetite to "hang around." I am going to stay at Caledonia Mills until Dr. Prince leaves. Leo McGllvrey has asked me to be his guest. The McOllvrey house Is not far from MarDonalA's. I hope it is not too far for me to see what goes on. Dr. Prince has promised to see me in the morning and tell how he spent his lone polterglcst vigil. Last night was a painful night for us all. We felt for Mrs. MacDonald, the poor old worn out lady, who was driven to the house last night to spend the night. "I pray I shall help Dr. Prince," she said. And she meant it. This morning Mrs. MacDonald was disappointed. It showed in her face. She told me she hoped Dr. Prince would not blame her; she had done her "bit" FOUR PUBLICATIONS BANNED. Stracusb, March 11.?The Department of Public Safety to-day ordered stopped the sale of four alleged objectionable publications, which have flooded the city and country of late following complaint of the City Federation of Women's Clubs. The publications barred are "The pamphlet," "Pajamas," "Jazz" and "liotdog." M. E. Conference Hears of Huge Sums for Lip Sticks, Pittances for Heathens. 8p*eiaI Ditpatch to Thi New Yoik. Herald. Atlantic Citt, March 11.?The women of America spent last year thirty-eight times as much for powder puffb, lip sticks, rouge and other articles of feminine facial adornment as was contributed to the Methodist Episcopal Church for its missions, according to the Rev. E. Luther Lovejoy of Chicago, who addressed the annual New Jersey Conference of that denomination here this afternoon. Despite the lessened purchasing power of the dollar, Dr. Lovejoy observed with emotion, the cent is the symbol of generosity with a certain class of churchgoers. Many people, too, he said, do not understand that they are merely giving to the churches what their grandfathers gave, despite tho radically dissimilar conditions. "We are a much wealthier country now, but It seems that this nation's sense of luxuries alone keeps pace," Dr. Lovejoy said. "The men smoke up a sufficient sum to finance the entire Methodist centenary for 147 years. Many men will own elaborate city homes, ride in expensive motor cars, dress In the finest, and yet pay 26 cents on Sunday for their religion. No wonder the penny turns red with race. It Is blushing for the company it keepa "But people are realising that they must stop treating their Creator with less consideration than they would the waiter at a restaurant." SECRETARY WALLACE DENIES PROPAGANDA No Differences Over Forestry and Alaskan Policies. Sptoial Dispatch to Thi New Yoik Hjuald. New Torlc Herald Bureau.) Washington, D. C., March 11. 5 Secretary of Agriculture Wallace today wrote a letter to Senator Capper of Kansas, in which he denied that there were any differences between his department and that of Secretary of the Interior Fall over "forestry po'icies and the question of Alaskan development" Secretary Wallace says It apparently "has been charged that the Department cf Agriculture has been guilty of Issuing propaganda criticizing another Government department or the heads of another department," and continues: "There Is absolutely no foundation for such a charge. Neither the Department of Agriculture nor any one connected ti lth it has been guilty of Issuing propaganda of any kind." Then he reviews the circumstances eurroundlng the article written by CoL Greeley of his department, and which Is being used by the American Forestry Association In its titter attack against Secretary Fall. He Bays this was prepared In 1120, approved by the Democratic head of the Department of Afrl culture, but wm not published until April, 1921. He does not believe, he say*, that CoL Oreeley would lend hlmselt to criticism of another Government depart- ! ment. I ^ m js 5 EAST 47?
