I room at 10 o'clock yesterday morning
when n man's scream of pain made her

a brown suit made a sharp turn of the

the south side of the street. 21.?. He
pushed ut gently at the electric bells
He wus standing in the vestibule fidget
ing it had only taken a few seconds for
this t i happen when a man in his shirt
sleeves, one hand pressed to the side of
his head aim the other holding a pistol.
Cams hurriedly but unsteadily around the
corner. Mrs Weiss recognized hlffl us
Charles Barnett. eho had a small hard
ware nop at 1427 Third avenue, a few
floors BOUth of tho corner
Barnett stopped at the house where
stood the msn in brown, who was banging
away at every bell in the doorway. Bar
nett tried to climb the steps, the revol

he staggered and clutched the rail. He
raised the pistol. The man in brown
took his hand off the door and moved as
though about to start for Barnett.
Will Barnett shoot him or will the man
get to him Href Mrs Weiss wondered.
Then the doar opened and the man shot
into the hallway. Barnett seemed to
crumble and fell on the walk. Sunday
morning strollers gathered in a knot
Next minute Mrs. Weiss saw the msn
in brown on the roof of the house. He
came to the edge snd peered over. He
must have seen the group on the side
walk. Mrs. Weiss thought he was going
to jump. Forgetting that the window
was closed she shouted, "Don't!"
He might ha'e been obeying her, he
turned so suddenly and surveyed the
roof of the house on the esst, 2ut. There
was a six foot sir shsft between the two
houses. He stepped beck, msde a quick
start and Jumped. He cleared the shaft.

"I was calling on some people upstairs
and I had to leave in a hurry." said the
man in brown, who waa not out of breath.
Mrs. BergOvHs stemmed the window.
She thought he might ls a thief and
