Messing or Magazine Section fashions features Scivern Sherlock hoi Mes May have been some Sleuth but he could t hold a Candle to great Britain s Zzz Einstein Athens Ohio. Sunday october i to by Soi and Hamm new York oct. In since the outbreak of hostilities Between the greeks anti the turks in Asia minor America is again being hooded with tales of the horrors of the turkish harem. Some of them May be True. Most Are lies. The cruel and brutal husband is not known in Turkey nor is he unknown in America As witness the records of the american divorce courts. I have found Many popular misconceptions in America of the life of the turkish married woman. To the average american mention of Thi harem brings to his mind a picture of a port in gentleman lolling at ease on a divan propped up by numerous gorgeously coloured cushions with a miniature Pony Ballet composed of his Manv wives in front of him. One wife enough but in the interest of truth it is necessary for me to destroy that fairy Ideal. While the Koran permits to the moslem four wives not More than one modern Turk in a Hundred avails himself of the privilege. One wife is about All the it he can successfully manage. A turkish wife has the same duties the same cares the same rights and the same privileges As any american wife. I might dance with my husband hut not for him. I would sing or play a piano for him the same As any american wife would do.

We were about to leave when ii noticed a scrap of paper on the floor of a dirty closet. There was t much on it just the name of a Shoemaker on the East Side. But it was enough. We went to Ace the Man. He was a poor old fellow inca if your appetite s jaded try this he did not. But. He would try to recall. After a time he reminded himself of one a married Man. But. He did t know his name or address. He thought and thought. Finals he recalled the name of the Man brother in Law. It was night then. But we went to his House and awakened 25 tam Hies before we found him. He told us where the suspect j lived. We went Back to Brooklyn found tile Houes located the Flat and found the Man sleeping. A woman and child were with him. He denied that he was the Man sought. We were puzzled. Tho brother in Law said that he had no children. Yet Here was a youngster asleep with him. He seemed sincere. Ile offered to help us look for the Man. So we withdrew. We went Back to our informant. He laughed. He said that his remit it Ive was very shrewd. He had i probably put one Over on us. By the time we got Back our suspect had fled. He had paid the Anitress of the House $25 for allowing Lier baby to sleep with them just to throw us j off our guard. We became convinced that the Man was guilty. We sent out a Call for him. Three Days later he was found living in a Shack on the River front the rest was easy. He confessed.
