Captain of Detectives Matheson, Detectives Nolan and Hiett and Assistant District Attorney Edward Cunha haves instituted a joint Investigation of charges of alleged Jury tampering. The investigation Is the. result of al leged complaints made by jurors concerning the actions of Daniel Taten-ham, bailiff In Judge Franklin Grif fin's department of the Superior Court. Thc alleged complaints followed the . disagreement of a jury in the case of Charles and Frank Ferrante, brothers, who were tried for the third time on a charge of padding the payroll of the San Francisco Scaling Company. Eleven Jurors are said to have voted for a verdict of guilty, while one held out for acquittal. B. Flatte. 153 Kearny street, is declared to have been the juror who caused the disagreement. According to other members of the jury, Flatte was twice called from the jury-room by Bailiff Tatenham. Flatte is said to have admitted that Tatenham called him from the room, but denied that the bailiff had influenced his vote on the verdict. He is alleged to have made contradictory statements to other parties, however. When the case of the Ferrante brothers was called in Judge Griffin's court yesterday to be set for trial. Assistant District Attorney Cunha and Judge Griffin engaged in a wordy war over the case which ended when the court threatened Cunha with contempt proceedings. T Worker Gives Shirt Off His Back9 , .

Tp a half pint of water add 1 ounce of bay rum, a small box of Barbo Compound, and V ounce of glycerine. These ingredients can be bought at any drug store at very little cost, or any druggist can put it up for you. Apply to the hair twice a week until the desired shade is obtained.
