Stackhouse In Camden. It wsb the end of a month's courtship. A month ago Mrs. Weldman, selling shoe strings to the retail trade, was passing Strottner's home. Strottner was standing out In front HUrveylng his home when ho caught the little woman's eye. "I know a good woman when I see one," Strottner said today. "I saw she was the woman I wanted. I said to her: 'Como In nnd look my piece over. If you like It, we will get married and you can stay.' She camo In and looked all around and liked tho place. She liked me, too. So we de cided we would get married. "We didn't believe In long engagements. mz&l Besides we are getting too old to waste any time courting. You know, 1 like good, hot grub. I like my washing clean and 1 llko a woman's companionship." When Recorder Stackhouse reached the "love, honor and obey" pronouncement of the ceremony, Strottnor Interrupted. "Obey?" he questioned. "Yes, obey," repeated the recorder. "Oh, yes, yes, yes," said Mrs. Weldman, "I obey." Strottner had no wedding ring. "Only young people need wedding rings," he ex plained. When the bond had been healed, the man and his little blue-eyed bride, both their faces beaming happiness, went back to live In the brushmaker's house. Their honeymoon trip wan u rldo on the ferry to Philadelphia; significantly, the Journey was toward the West. i NO TIME TO EXAMINE SCHOOL CHILDREN FOR PARALYSIS SYMPTOMS Medical Inspector Finds Plan Impracticable and Says Prom ised Results Would Be Inadequate DOCTOR CORNELL'S VIEWS Thyslcal examination of school children before the opening of school will be Im possible In Philadelphia. Tho examina tions would take so long that the term would have to be delayed more than a month and the examinations would cost the city more than they would bo worth. These aro the opinions of Dr. Walter S. Cornell, chief medical Inspector of the pub lic schools, on tho suggestion of Dr. Samuel a, Dixon, State Health Commissioner, that tho school children be examined for symp toms of Infantile paralysis before they are enrolled. "Plans to examine tho children." said Doctor Cornell, "cannot be crltlclzod ex cept on tho ground of the time required for the examinations compared with the results possible It would take a month and would cost 33000. There are 160,000 children In the ele mentary schools. Sixty physicians, exam ining 3B00 children and spending thirty seconds In examining each one, would re quire a month to finish the work. MINIMIZING CONTACHON "Speaking ot contagious diseases gen erally, without reference to Infantile pa ralysis, we tried this plan In the public schools In tbe fall of 1012 and abandoned It because more than a month was con sumed In .miscellaneous activities which yielded little or nothing. Under our pres ent system, which Includes the exclusion from the schools of children with sore throat, we have materially cut down tha prevalence of contagious diseases. "Our methods, combined with those of Doctor Cairns, have reduced the prevalence ot disease In Philadelphia so that the city has1 the lowest percentage or scarlet rever of the ten largest cities of the country. We nre next to lowest In prevalence of diph theria. Before 1913 there were 3600 cases of diphtheria every year. We have reduced the number to an average of !000 cases, while the'populatlon probably has Increased a third. In 191B there were 1073 cases of scarlet fever and twcnty-clght deaths. "In 1916 we developed and examined 27,083 cultures taken from the throat nt public school children suspected of having disease and 1235 cultures from pupils In tho parochial schools. That Is the work we do under our present system." Dr. A, A, Cairns, chief medical Inspector of the health department, said that he has been making examinations oi parocmai school children for the last four years. Doctor Cairns Is In charge of ninety paro chial schools and six private schools, with a total enrollment of 69,000 children. KM1CROENCY AID NEEDS 13009 An appeal for 33000 to care for the vic tims ot Infantile paralysis was issued thla morptng from the emergency aid com mittee, 1438 Walnut street.

Rufus C. Kartman, of the Heidelberg Reformed Church, who yes terday termed their pastor, J. (Iray Uolton, a politician and a corrupt gangster. They ar busy making 'sweeping denials In be half of Doctor DrUton, who ot tho present time Is taking a vacation at tljs Crawford House, While Mountains, New ltampshlre John Raster, an attorney with offices nt Fourth and Pine streets, who Is the super intendent of the Hope Presbyteilan Church, was one of tho chief defenders. Mr. Daxter said: "Dr. Uolton, Is a conscientious nnd un right man, and I know that he did not do tho things that Dr. Zartman ullogcs. He may have expressed his personul political opinion at Borne time or other and 1 know that he Is a close personal friend of Sena tor Penrose. Jealously Is the cause of 1Mb attack. Doctor Uolton. ou know, holds some Important positions In the church." Mrs. Richard Firth, for many years n Sunday school teacher, and soveral other members of the church were strong In their denunciations of Doctor Zartman and In support of Doctor Bolton. The trouble arose yesterday at the regu lar weekly meeting of the Ministerial As Boclation of tho Reformed Church, when It was announced that Doctor Uolton would address the members of tho association next week. Doctor Zartman, who was presiding, made a strenuous objection to the Presbyterian clergyman, asserting that he was a politician as' well as a minister nnd a corrupt gangster. He offered to prove hla assertions by producing several letters written by Doctor Uolton. Ho closed his remarks with the statement that he would leave tho meeting If Doctor Uolton was to speak.

Hearings Next Week MINISTERS JOIN FRAY PKNNSCinoVn. N. J.. Sept. ID. The bponlng gun of another lively bottle to be waged by wet nnd dry forces to decide whether thli powder town nhall or shall not (restore the licensed liquor traffic, dis continued several months ago when the court closed tho only licensed bar at the old French Hotel, was fired today at the opening of tho September term of the Salem County Court, at Salem. An application for an Inn and tavern license and two applications for wholesale licenses here were filed. Harry II. Oreen, , proprietor of a new $30,000 brick hotel, called the Colonial, ap piled for an Inn and tavern license. He Is said to be backed by the Bavarian Brew ing Company, of Wilmington, Del. The applicants for wholesale licenses are Alphlne I.ucan and Joseph Jordan. Drya have found an .ally (n the -Union Brewery vvorks, of Wilmington, now on strike, who liavo declared their Intention of doing eveiythlng in their power to prevent Oreen from getting his license, because of his re--ported backing by the Bavarian Browing Company, with which the Union men aro at odds. Judge E. C. Waddlngton set Friday as tho date for tho filing of jemonstrances pgalnst the license applicants. The hear ing on the applications and remonstrances will probably come up a week later. Attorneys J. Forman Slnnlckaon, former prosecutor of tho county, and S. Russn Lcnp, former borough solicitor nt Penm grove, wilt represent tho drys. The big power looming up behind the antl-llccnse forces Is tho du Pont Powder Company, whose officials are actively In terested In keeping booze out of Penns grove. j im local ministerial association, to gether with businessmen and cltUens, expect to marshal a big delegation to swoop down upon the courthouse at Salem and empnaticauy back up the remonstrance against the granting of any licenses hem. As a trump card, the drys will play strong on the Issue that the permanent camp-meet-Ing established here sovoral months ago by tho Ministerial Association Is a legal barrier to the granting of liquor license, the New Jersoy Htate law providing that no new licenses shall be granted for places within a n-dius ot one mile of a camp-meeting site. Several have tried recently to get the much-prized licenses, because of their prom ise of big revenue to such lucky holder. Bqulre J, IC. Duffy camo the nekrest of any to landing a.wholevule license, and li fact he had ulready succeeded In having the court grant him tho privilege when the drys discovered that a Justice pf the peace could not legally hold a Ihilior license.
