a year ago, Mrs. Fox told Gehring that
he must either become reconcile.) to

particularly noticeable on Saturday
night, after he lost his place with a
lumber firm in Greenpoint.
?Mrs. Fox then ordered Gehring to
quit the house within a wtek. She told '
him she would accept no more excuses
Early yesterday morning Mrs. Fox
was awakened by the sound of Gehring
pacing about his room. She inquired
what the trouble was, and received
surly answers and a threat. Thor?
oughly frightened, Mrs. Fox dressed
and went to the home of her son. He
calmed his mother and told her to re?

In order to avoid trouble Mrs. Fox
entered the kitchen, but. Gehring fol?

At this command Gehring. it is said, '
drew a revolver and fired one sho?, '
which struck Mrs. Fox in the temple.
The man was in the act of turning the
revolver on himself, when Fox dashed
into the room and, seizing Gehrin?; by
the throat, struggled for possession of

BY WOMAN SPY. TO GO
Occasional Spells of Insomnia Blamed for Policemen's

Policemen in the 2.".d Precinct wer?
congratulating themselves last nigh*

They had the same reasons for rejoic?

More men. who have been assigned
i to duty on that post, have been up on
charges than on all other posts in the
precinct put together, and the precinct
extends from 14th st. to 42d St.
The reason for this is not that the
post is more difficult than hundreds of
others, but that a woman living in the

I watching the man on post,.and on his
?lUappearance for a few minutes, calls
headquarters on the telephone. Then
she follows up the complaint with a

IN PICTURE DEAL
Noblewoman Seeks Court
Help to Secure Ex?
Corots, Rembrandts, Vclasquezes and
the work of other masters are repre?
sented in the collection of paintings
over which Baroness Aurelia de Tonnay
has brought suit in the Supreme Court
against John W. Van Dyke, of Phila?
delphia, president of the Atlantic Re
The baroness acted as the purchasing
ngent of Mr. Van DyKe in Europe and
bought for him a lf.rge number of
paintings. She paid $35.000 for vari
ou. canvases, which, with the cost of
I r ngiiig them here, cost the oil man
$40,000. But from the list of values
I irniahed by Baroness de Tonnay their
real value is from $750,000 to $1,000.
000. She is snug for her share of
profits that would have accrued if the
?iifenil.'iiit had kept his alleged agree?
ment to ?-ell the pictures.
The plaintiff says that she got a
purchaser who was ready to buy ihe
masterpieces for $500,000, but that Mr.
Van Dyke changed his mind about
selling, and retains the pictures in his
home in Gladstone st., Philadelphia.
It is said that Mr. Van Dyke became
acquainted with Baroness de Tonnay,
who is an art broker, In Paris, and
that he was married at her home about
five or six years ago.
Baroness de Tonnay bought most or
some of the pictures over which the liti
?tion is brought from a daughter of
Zarachai A'tru/., painter and sculptor.
In the n.'lection owned by Mr. Van
Dyke is a Grcuze. for which, according
to the baroness, the late .1. P. Morgan
was at one time willing to pay $(50,000,
but was unable to get the picture.
The plaintiff explains that she eras
able to get the valuable collection of
paintings, of which there arc sixty
four, at the price she paid because she
bought them in 1908 and 1909, at a
time when they were not being sought
by American collectors, and also that
if they had been bought by agents
their price would have been fabulous.
Astruz left fifty-nine of the pictures
to his daughter, Mme. Isubella Doria.
She had to sell them because of press?
ing financial obligations. The most
valuable of the collection, as stated by
Baroness de Tonnay, is a portrait of
the Infanta Maria Teresa by Velas?
quez, on which a value of $100,000 is
placed. There is a specimen of De
lanyo Fragonard vnlued at $75.000,and
'?The Earthquake," by the same artist,
is said to be valued at $50,000. Other
canvases in the Van Dyke collection
and the value fixed by Baroness de
Tonnay are: "The Toilette," by
Veronese, $85,000; "Descent from tho
Cross," by Peter Porbus, $40,000;
"Bouquet de Tereus," by Rubens, $20,
000; "Maiiame du Barry." by Van Loo,
??V'0,000; "The Spring," by Millet, $10,
000; "Diaz Among Flowers," by Diaz.
ST. ,000; portrait of Comtesse Henri?
ette de Tourillias, by Niculas de Largil
liere, $20,000; portrait of Comte
Etienne Robert de Torgot, by Hyacinthe
Rigaud, $25,000; "Christ Carrying
Cross," by Murillo, $50,000; "Proces?
sion." by Velasquez, $60,000, and
"Head of Woman," by Goya, $10,000.
Thee are two landscape paintings by
Rembramlt in the collection on which
the value was not given. One of these,
said Baroness de Tonnay, formerly
hung in th.e royal palace in Holland.
Also there arc Corots on which a value
of $40.000 is placed.

that the crowd cast envious eyes.
Since Mrs. Laidlaw was going to a
nommittee meeting immediately after
the flower market, she had no time to
eat luncheon in the regular manner,
and she had brought with her from
home a neat little parcel of sandwiches.
She ate these as she made change for
the stenographers and brokers who
came to buy flowers. The spectacle
was too much for one boarding-house
"PltntU, miss," he said, "is thfm
sandwiches for sale? I'd lots rather
have them than flower.?."
Notice is hereby given to that hungry
youth to be at Broadway and Park
place to-morrow at noon and get all
the homemade sandwiches he wants.
There will be sandwiches for all tastes,
ham and corned beef for the men, and
cream cheese and lettuce for those
with ladylike appetites.

Vane Ernkine, Daura's cattish cousin,

and others succeeded In push ng
through the Legislature the l_*?t day
of the session, goes into effect on
Wednesday. Despite the fears of u?
li ?ends, the lack of an appropriation
will not affect the power of the law.
Owing to the haste and contusion
which marked the last days of the
Legislature, there was no appropria?
tion for the printing of order blanks,
which are the essential feature of the
Boylan law. Within the las', week or
so fears for its efficiency in conse?

long been active in the campaign
against cocaine and other drugs, wrote

bone of the law. and that he under?

He suggested that, if necessary, the
local health boards to which the blanks

Volunteers to Stand Expense.
A reply came from the State Com?
missioner of Health yesterday. He
wrote that the order blanks would be

Last week's bulletin of the city
Health Department warned physicians,
druggists and veterinarians of the new
law. The main purpose of the Boylan
law is to make a permanent record of

salts, alkaloids or derivatives. Pre- ?
scriptions for such drugs must be writ?

?are serially numbered and duplicated. t

Druggists are compelled to keep on

TO STUDY THE SUN
Professor Todd, of Amherst,
Will Use Novel Method at
[Pv Tolfsraph to Th* Tri'mn? ]
Boston, June 28. With the aid of an
aeroplane above the clouds Professor
David Todd, of Amherst College, ex?
pects, on August _.">, at Riga, P.ussia,
to make discoveries important to as?
tronomers concerning the sun.
He will sail from New York this
week on his tenth astronomical expedi?
tion, and will, for the first time in
astronomical observation, use an air?
ship to aid his efforts. His success
with balloons during the observation
of Halley's comet led to tests with
aeroplnnes. Professor Todd believes
that the great ?peed of the aircraft -
120 miles an hour will make possible
a longer study of the sun. It will
1 enable him to rise above the cloud? or
mist and give him other advantages
: hitherto beyond the reach of scientists.
He will carry with him in his flights
a camera telescope and a spectroscope.
It is expected that important obser?
vations will result from Professor
Todd'l reynrrh work. Since his gradu?
ation from Amherst in 1875 he has been
actively engaged in astronomy, in
which he ha? won a wide reputation.
In 1ST-:, when only three years out of
college, he was placed in charge of
the Navy Department's expedition to
Texas to observe the eclipse of the sun

VICTIM WILL DIE;
MATE FOILS ESCAPE
Two Visitors Suspected of Giv?
ing insane Man Gun, Which
He Kept Hidden.
[By Telegraph to The Tribun?. 1
Morristown, N. J? June 28. William
Wall, an insane convict in the State
Hospital at Morris Plains, to-day fatal?
ly wounded Patrick J. Collins, a keep?
er, with a revolver of which he had
obtained possession in some manner
unknown to the authorities.
Wall, who is twenty-six years of age,
was sent to the institution from the
I'ahwav Reformatory on May 6, 1913.
He had been arrested in Paterson for
stealing from a Lackawanna freight
car, and was sent to the reformatory
on June 4. 1910. After five months he
was paroled, but was shortly after?
ward rearrested and sent back. Then
the authorities discovered that he dis?
played symptoms of insanity, and he
was finnlly committed to the State
According to the custom of the in?
stitution. Wall was bathed on last
Wednesday, and the cell which he oc?
cupied was given a thorough search
for contraband articles. It is certain,
according to the officials, that he had
no weapon at that time. The following
day he was visited by two men, who
are suspected of having furnished him
with the revolver, and also with a
screw driver, which he used to un?
fasten the lower sash of a window in
one of the rooms.
Owing to the crowded condition <>f
the hospital. Wall was taken from his
cell yesterday and quartered with
twenty-five other supposedly harmless
patients in a general ward.
At 5 o'clock this morning Edward
Carroll, the night guard, discovered
that the cot assigned to Wall was va?
cant and notified Collins. Th"e two
men began a search for the missing
convict, and finally discovered Wall
crouching under the bed of another pa?
tient. He made no resistance when
taken back to his bed, but shortly af?
terward his cot was again vacant.
This time it was found that a win?
dow in the room had been pried open.
Carroll and Collins were examining
the window, when they heard from be?
hind the curb a command, "Hands up!"
Collins wheeled, and found Wall con?
fronting him with a revolver. As he
leaped the madman fired, and the bul?
let lodged in the keeper's breast. Car?
roll then sprang upon the insane as?
sailant and bore him to the ground,
after which he was speedily disarmed
and subdued, with the assistance of
several other attendants, who had been
attracted by the report of the shot.
Collins was carried into his room.
.\t a late hour to-night no hope was
entertained for his recovery.
Detectives are searching for the two
men who visited Wall. Their identity
is known, and it is expected that they
will be arrested within the next twen?
Armed Bandits Rob Four in
Store, Then Lock Door and
Flee in Auto.
Four men alighted from an automo?
bile and entered the establishment of
Joseph Kanerick, an importer of laces,
at :,I Orchard st., about S o'clock last
night. In the store was the proprietor,
conversing with three friends, Davi?!
Schurman, of 226 Eldridge st.; Jake
(lark, of 98 Essex st., and Bernar-d
Iaoibow, of the same addrc?- ?.
The visitors interrupted the chat by
a: king to be shown some laces, and as
tl.e proprietor was about to comply the
intruders suddenly drew revolvers and
lined Kanerick and his friends up'
ap-yinst the wall. From Schurman the
hold-Up men secured $16 in cash, a
lady's watch valued at $10 and his own
timepiece, worth $75. Clark was forced
to hand over a watch worth So.'? and
$100 in money, while Leibow contrib?
uted $21 in small bills to the visitors.
Kanerick, the proprietor of the place,
who had just sent home $175, had only
$7 in his possession, which was snatch?
ed from him by one of the robbers.
The thieves, upon leaving the store,
fastened the padlock, thus trapping
their four victims, while they made
their escape in the touring car. The
i-houts of Kanerick and his companions
finally attracted the attention of Pa?
trolman Kenney, who released them.
Detectives Shine and Mundow were
assigned to the case, and after inves
