New York, Aug.-18. John Dietz, a
painter, fell seven floors from the
scaffold of a department store at
34th and Broadway yesterday and
landed squarely on the head of Hen
ry Docking, negro porter. Dietz was
killed; Docking was uninjured.
"When Dr. Calder of the New York

limping around, somewhat dazed.
"Where you hit?" asked the sur
geon. "Was I hit!" exclaimed the negro.
"I was slammed so hard ma ankle is
busted. That's how hard I'se hit,
man."
The 'surgeon tried to assist Dock-
ing to an ambulance. .
"You leave me alone," said Dock
ing. 'Tse married and I'se lookin'
for work and I want that work today.
I ain't got no time for nonsense"
Then he limped away.
