And a Firm of Soap Makers are Out $25,000
For more than seventeen years Charles A. Sturges was head bookkeeper and cashier for Proctor & Gamble, soap manufacturers, at Chicago. He is now a defaulter and fugitive from justice. The exact amount of his defalcation will not be given out by the firm whose money he took, but it is said the figures will not fall short of $25,000.
