TINKHAM ONE OF CAPITAL SIGHTS (Continued k'rom l'age 1). emphasized by just a thread of gray here and there, and he evidently wears them because he feels like it; not merely because he grew accustomed them in the 1860's, aa Representative Stedman did. » * *' O H, MY! but Representative Tinkham's whiskers are black! They are so black that they are a kind of blue-black. And they bristle. He recently had the, extreme lower end of his beard snipped off slightly, but not sufficiently to detract in tho least from their hirsute effect, and the result of the snipping simply was to accentuate their bristliness. That is, it made them stick out more than ever. They grow clear up to the representative's eyes--· and gcewhillikins! they are vivl*. The New Englander is about 5 feet 4 inches tall, extremely erect, and, at a guess, he measures somo 6 feet around his waistband. The top of his head is as bald as a doorknob. He has a very high color, a bel- iigerent aspect, and it is no wonder that tourists exclaim, "who in heck IS that?" the minute they sight him. * * * F OLK OFTEN speak of Congressman Tinkham as suggesting the Hebraic, but the fact is that he is of the purest Anglo-Saxon strain. His ancestors came over in the Mayflower--pilgrim fathers and sons and sons' sons, every one of them, even unto the present generation. It is altogether inaccurate, anyway, to say that Representative Tinkham himself looks Hebraic. He looks like an ancient Babylonian or Assyrian or maybe a Sume- rian. There are pictures on prehistoric bits of pottery, dug up from the ruins of Ur, in the Smithsonian institution's collection of antiquities. that resemble him. » * * THE REPRESENTATIVE is very ·I rich, among other things. He also is an old bachelor. Likewise he is a mighty big game hunter; between sessions of congress he amuses himself in Central Africa, shooting lions and elephants. A picturesque per sonality! , Finally, he is an ultra-wet. Probably his wetness is what gave him his anti-Bishop James Cannon. Jr., complex. He has that phobia, at any rate. He made the original charge against the bishop of violating the political corrupt practices act, in connection with his fight to beat Al Smith two years ago. Whenever the bishop appears :\s a witness before a congressional committee, as he did before Senator, Caraway's lobby investigating corr mittee last summer, and much mo recently before Senator Nye's slu .' fund committee, there is Repress tative Tinkham on hand, to see t' no stone is left unturned to tw« the last cent spent by the "btat Smith" campaigners. .in Vi rgirii a.

HUSBAND TAKES LIFE'S SAVINGS Man Who Wed Former lowan Disappears Two Days Later. ST. LOUIS, Feb. 28. UP--Mrs. Estella Allison, 60, formerly of Waterloo, Iowa, has asked police to search for the husband whom she married Wednesday and who apparently has disappeared with $2,800, her life's savings.
