H'dicap Mrs C O powers .W-S down Scratch "The good people who heard Mayor Batcheler's address the other night," =aid State's Attorney J. Ix Deck, "should bear In mind that Indiana has a search-and-seizure law, something we haven't got In Illinois. Therefore the police in Indiana can do a great many things the police officers cannot do in this state. SOME DIFFERENCE. ''This fact should have been explained to the people who attended t h a t banouet, for many people are of the opinion t h a t if the officers in Indiana can do a thing there is nothing to prevent o f f i c e r s of Illinois cities doing the same thing. Under our local option law there is nothing to prevent people from storing beer or whisky or from hauling it through the streets There Is no provision In our law for confiscating liquors found In local option territory. "If our police should attempt to do things po=tible for the police of Indiana towns to do they would get Into serious trouble Immediately. I think the police have been doing very well The trouble IF not with the police, it is with the legislature in not giving us the kind of a law the-- have in Indiana." RAID ON MILLSTEAD. Selling liquor in anti-saloon territory, assaulting an officer and refusing to admit an officer are three charges against James Millstead of 10S North Franklin street as a result of a raid by Chief Allen and his men late Friday afternoon.

He has a sort of restaurant next door to the room in which his saloon was located before the town went dry, and there Is a door in the partition between the two looms, m a k i n g it very convenient for the illegal sale of liquor. SEE MEN LEAVE. About 4.30 Fiiday afternoon Chief Allen got a tip that there was a crowd of men in the saloon room. As soon as he could gather a bunch of officers together, Chief Allen hastened over there. As usual, the men In the room got a tip that the officers were cornins, but not in time to prevent their being seen. The officers were In sight of the building- when they saw a b o u t eighteen men leave the place, some by the front door and some by the rear.

Elion Heis"* RED HAIR IN SPITE OF THEORIES hlcaso Profe»«or Ot\e» Brnncttw Some ThlnB* to Ponder. Pilots of the eugenics movement were given their first chart of the hitherto unmapped seas of evolution iy W. L.'Tower. associate professor at the University of Chicago. At the same time those ravenous ad- ,-ocates of the doctrine that the blonde s doomed to extinction were given something to ponder over. Here are a. few guideposts as outlined by the teacher: If both parents have llffht hair their children will also have llsht hair. If both parents hnve dark hair of the Klossy variety about one child out of four will have red hair, thus proving; that the red-haired person cannot be kent down. If both parents have fair skins ninetv-one times out of a" hundred the child will be a blonde, once out of f i f teen times It will be of an Intermediate type, and once out fifty-five times a brunette. If both parents are tall, or short, their children will follow their example, while if one parent Is tall and the other short the children will he either tall or medium, but never "shorties." Professor Tower uttered a fearsome warning In regard to attempts to make h u m a n k i n d too good. 'If we develop a race made up whollv of Sir Isaac Newton? and Charles Darwins." he admonished, "who will haul the garbage" We must have an immense diversity of people. The biggest problem will bo In determining which way It shall go TTho can tell us in what direction human evolution should go?" He traced the pedigrees of several families to prove the recurrence of mental deficiency and urged marriage restrictions for defectives. Scraps of News. AT EIXXJMINGTON. Rev. D. R.
