Humane So ciety Sold Dog Before 5-Day Limit, Claim Charges of Ray Kraft 2721 Center that Dane County Humane society representatives picked up his Springer Spaniel dog and disposed of the animal without waiting the five days customarily allowed owners to recover dogs impounded were denied recently by E. F. Busse, Humane society agent, and Dr, B.

H. Borman, of the Madison Pet hospital, where the society houses Kraft said that his dog was returned to him Wednesday night by a representative of the society after the so- English basement. It was an im- mense kitchen. Here the servants prepared the meals for family and guests and sent them scooting, in courses, via dumb-waiter, to the assembled diners above. Marcus Ford, son of Rev.

and Mrs. was asked the other day if they had a butler to go with the butlers pantry when he was a boy. Sometimes, he answered laconically. And then, grinning with delight, he pointed significantly to himself. So, boys had their little chores in those days, too.

Before we leave the old dining room, which is now Apt. D-l, it Is interesting to note that the floor is covered with the identical carpet that once beautified the drawing room of the old house. It is beautiful hunter's green velvet with a delicate over- scroll of black. (More tomorrow.) ciety had recovered It from the purchaser. He said he would not sell the animal for less than $75.

Kraft charged: 1. That representatives of the society picked op his dog after it disappeared from his premises Jan. 13 and sold it Monday, Jan. 17, without giving. him the five days customarily allowed owners to recover dogs impounded.

2. That na wife phoned the societys office Jan. 14 and Monday to inquire about the dog and was told that the society was not holding a dog of the description she gave. 3. That his wife received a phone call at 4:30 p.

m. Monday, from a man at the Madison Pet hospital and, after she described the dog, the man said: I believe I just sold your dog. 4. That when Mrs. Kraft asked why the dog was sold before her husband could claim it, the man said: We only keep dogs five days, then dispose of them.

Both Busse and Borman said that the animal was held at the pet hospital for five days before it was sold. The society representative taking the phone call from Mrs. Kraft said that her description of the dog did not enable identification of the animal. Attaches of the pet hospital did not call the Kraft residence, according to Dr. Borman.

We did not know who owned the dog until he (Kraft) came storming into the hospital, Dr. Borman said. FUflV6D Aol.ES ON SCREEN twentv-five. YEAAS AGO. I -t -A; ff i nf ff doorway, you entered the wide colonial hall.

This was usually glowing from the light of a handsome silver-and-crystal chandelier and from the reflected light of the four fireplaces on right and left. The old chandelier is still hanging. Tne first thing that aroused your admiration in the old house in the olden days, as you wended your way down the baronial hall, was the grand staircase. Your eyes involuntarily followed the graceful sweep of that highly polished walnut rail and the wide tread of the steps as they swirled away from the center of the hall upward to the third floor. Naturally, that, too, has been left in its original form as the old glides into the new.

tJti iJ, THEN AND NOW fPhs great drawing room of the JL old Ford mansion was the first room on the right as you entered the Kail. This beautiful salon occupied the whole length of the right side of the hall. From early fall until late spring a cheerful fire glowed on the two huge fireplaces which made bright spots at either end of the long room. The sun poured in from the many deep French windows which are fully 8 ft. high and, by actual measurement, 40 inches wide.

Now, as you enter the hall, instead of seeing that old drawing-room, you see two of the most compact, beautifully furnished little apartments that ever glad-dened the heart of a bachelor, bachelor girl, or married couple. A peep into them disclosed Pullman kitchens, electric refrigeration, built-in features of the most modern kind, low-down bath tubs, cushiony chairs and couches, rich wall hangings AND the old fireplaces. To the left, the spacious room that was once the fine old Ford library, is a similar apartment, done in gorgeous colors. Lovely as it is now, you cant help but shut your eyes and picture it as it WAS in the days gone by. Hundreds of volumes then lined the walls; snapping fire in the grate; the family assembled for a quiet, happy, long winter evening.

Going on 'down the hall, you come to the big room on the left that was the Ford dining room. It has the biggest fireplace of all the six in the house. Now it is a snug, beautifully done, complete home. But again one thinks of what it used to be. 4 4 HAD BUTLER SOMETIMES How many merry gatherings have taken place around the big dining room table in that high-ceilinged, square old room overlooking Lake Monona!

the character played by Mae West with minor variations In all her stage and screen vehicles. Is In town again. Diamond Lll Is now masquerading at the Parkway in Every Days a Holiday under the name of Peaches ODay, a Brooklyn blond with a bru- nette past. MOVIt MITilj in the beginning. Peaches is on the dodge, with all the coppers in New 3 York on her trail.

She is not above selling the Brooklyn bridge to a wit-less sucker or pinching a poke or two; robbing a department store window, or carrying brass knuckles and a blackjack In her handbag. But before long she has fallen for a poor but honest plain-clothes man and gives up her rowdy life for adventures on the stage and in politics. In the end, she leads a reform movement and campaigns for a city administration free from graft and crime. rrHE MAE WEST style, tone and I gestures are unchanged in Every Day's a Holiday. Less nusing each picture, however, are 'V battleship roll, the drawling the half -closed eyes, the polite leer, the occasional lapse in grammar, the hour-glass figure, the razzle-dazzle costume and the cm-upn-see-me gag.

In this picture, however. Miss West is given stronger support, as to players, settings and dialogue, than has been the case in most of her vehicles.

Gently so good men have taught Gently and without grief, the old Shall glide into the new. William Cullen Bryant 4 4- 4 THESE lines from an unfinished poem by William Cullen Bryant, came to mind while making a recent tour of the old Ford estate, 1033 Spaight st the metamorphosis of which is intriguing the attention of everyone in that neighborhood and of those elsewhere who have known the old place since the early days. In some ways, the transition which It is undergoing proclaims the passing of another venerable landmark.

Yet In another way, it is really a perpetuation of it. For now, as the old glides into the new, Dr. J. P. West, the new owner of the property.

In true appreciation of the beauty and historical importance of the old house and grounds, has made a study of the place and has preserved to a remarkable degree its historic, cultural atmosphere, even though it has been modernized to the n-th degree. Truly, the old has glided into the new in that old yellow sandstone castle of great antiquity, whose grounds run down to the very edge of Lake Monona and which has a most magnificent setting with dozens of ancient oaks and elms in the background. 4- 4 GOVERNORS OWNED IT TWO governors of Wisconsin have owned that lovely old place. James D. Doty, territorial governor, w-as the first owner on record.

It passed Into the hands then, of Gov. Dotys son, Charles, who in turn, after some years, sold It to Gov.

But that Is another story and we will skip that part of it for the moment.

Someone did build the old mansion, that's sure, and when from the east there came Rev. Francis F. Ford and his wife. garet, they saw the old place and surrendered to Its charm. They bought the place Dec.

1, 1876, from Mary R. Turnley and husband and lived there until death called them to more stately mansions. Rev. Ford passed away In 1886; his wife, some 10 years ago. Rev.

Ford had retired from the ministry before lie came to Madison.

Matinee rCDi I I I DRAMATIC HIGHLIGHT OF SEASON! Crpie SHAKESPEARE. SENSATION of THE CENTURy vors her, and the Police Gazette atmosphere is rather jolly. Every Day's a Holiday is much better en tertalnment than Klondike Annie but will win no new laurels for either the star or the producer. Edmund Lowe gives a zestful, humorous portrayal of the handsome copper, and has a knack of looking like a fashion plate even in the turn of-the-century garments. Lloyd Nolan has a lot of fun with the heavy role of Honest Jphn Quade, as vile a villain as ever plundered an orphan.

CHARLES WINNINGER is in his element as the drinking millionaire. The authors have obligingly written in for him an adapta- tion of the New Years scene from Show Boat, and this permits him to whoop HAP-py new YEAR to his hearts content. Charles Butterworth contributes half a dozen laughs, and other mem- Sbers of the cast are well chosen. There k're some musical sequences with lilsty tunes and an old-fashioned chorus routine which I am sure my father will enjoy seeing again. Joined with Mae on the Parkways double bill are the members of the Jones family in an innocuous little comedy drama of family life and politics, Hot Water.

OLLYWOOD HOTEL, starring Dick Powell, with Rosemary Lane, Hugh Herbert, Glenda Farrell and Benny Goodman and his swing band, opened yesterday at the Capitol.
