THE SCRANTON THIBUNE-MON DAY MORNING-, FEBRUARY S. 1SJ)T.
KILLED BY A FALL.
Tliomns J. Bcvan Fatally Injured at His
Home on North Alain Avenue.
' Died Yesterday Afternoon.
Thomas J. novnn, nsod 32 yenrs, Bon
of Thomas D. lievan, foiuman of the
Dlamonit mine, fell down a short lllRht
of steps about 5 o'clock Saturduy after
noon at his father's Home, loihim
Svvctlnnd stieet and Noith Mtiln nc
nue, and at 3S15 o'clock yesterday after
noon death resulted fiom a fracture of
the skull. The steps lead to the cel
lar of the residence, and aie six in
number; the vertical distance- is only
tlRht feet from the bottom of the cel
lar to the llooi of the house The cel
lar lloor, however, Is of bolld mortar,
and the unfoi lunate man sttuck
squarely upon the llfiht bide of his
head. No cut showed whole the In
jury was, and no blood (lowed.
Death was due In part ton blood clot
on the Intel lor side of the skull, press
ing aqalnst the btaln. When Uevan
fell his mother and a seivant, who was
within a few feet, heailnc the thud of
tht body as It struck the bottom,
rushed down the stalls, und nt the bot
tom, with his head resting- on the haul
surface, they found Ml. Benn. Up
wos not unconscious and walked to his
bed, saying that the huit was but
slight. He lomalned conscious until
10 o'clock yesteiday morning- and then
he showed the first feigns of berlous in
jury. Drs. Comeg-ys nnd Gunsler were
called, and Just as they weio about to
perform an operation on the biulsed
part of the head, Bevan breathed his
last. It Is thought that the fall was
caused by a misstep, the cellai way
being dark. The Idea nf the fatnllv is
that the son was going down to the
basement for tobacco. Ho had Just
retuined from work as a machinist at
the Capouse collleiy and was In his
working clothes at the time of the acci
dent. lievan was popularly known on the
"West Side. He possessed a fair edu
cation, having spent two cais of study,
at Keston academy. He was un
inanied Thomas D. 13ean, father of
the deceased, is one of the oldei iosI
dents of the city and is held in high
esteem. The funeral of the j oung man
has not jet been m tanged.
NEW KIND OF A TAKE.
A new kind of huckstei fake was
bom in this hection jesteiday. A man
with a hoise, wagon nnd a number of
baskets of peas, journejed ubout fiom
house to house bhouting "Fiosh peas'"
Three baskets small in size woie sold
for J3 cents Hundieds of people bit
nt the bait. The huckbter had a
smooth tongue. He explained that he
represented the largest maikct house
In the city and the peas had just h.en
lecelveel fiom Tloiida, wheie they were
farmed He didn't intend, lie ex
claimed in a goodly way, that the big
hotels and the big bugs should lecoho
the benellt of this assignment of peas.
No, he was a humanitarian as well as
a ogetarian, and he wished the poor
people to receive the benelit at thiee
quaits for a.quaiter. When the good
housowhes examined the peas they
wer soft and seemed luscious. When
they boiled these same peas they were
Just as soft and luscious as they were
when in the basket. Theie was no
change for the better. The secret of
the fake is that the huckster boiled
the haid, oidinaij peas until they were
swollen and the least bit soft. He
could well affoid to sell them at thiee
quaits for 23 cents, when seen quaits
can be purchased foi the same money
at any of oui gioceiles.
