Many prominent citizens of Redlands

of Infection there from tho numerous
tubercular patients who visit, that city,
pud are urging action on the part of

plaint is made that these people are
very careless about contaminating their
surroundings, endangering others who
are free from the disease.

absolutely no disinfection.
The claim is made that this condition
of affairs Is driving away desirable
tourists, and the city trustees will be
asked to take cognizance of It.

POOR PUSSY IN A WELL
Brave Boy Peter Reocues the Adven.
turous Tortoise Shell and Is
NEW YORK, Nov. 12.— Ding-dong
bell, pussy's in a, well, who put her In?
Poor pussy tell In. Who pulled her
out? Little Peter Keiser, and a dollar
rewarded his bravery and humanity.
Pussy, an adventurous tortoise-shell,
owned by Henry O. Hallenbeek. was
exploring his grounds on South Fuller
ton avenue, Montcluir, N. J.. yesterday
She jumped on the low rail around
the mouth of a well, lost her balance
and fell. The well Is seventy feet deep
and, clawing and spitting and twisting
and turning somersaults. Pussy fell all
that distance and— landed on her feet
of course. The well was dry else this
veracious tale would end right here.
The Hallenbeek c-oachnian heard
pussy's meowing, and lie told Miss
Hallenbeek and she told her neighbors
and soon twenty sympathetic women
were peering down the well listening
to the ceaseless cries for help, ••meow
meow," and chorusing "poor pussy.
"I wish I had wings," exclaimed one
fervently, "I'd fly to her."
"While, your wings grow the poor
oat will starve," said a practical wo
That was enough for Miss Hallen
beek. She put a platter of tnllk, a
whole boiled chicken and a stable Inn
tern In a big basket and lowered the
basket by a stout string down the well.
At last the lantern Illumined the dark
bottom. Presto! Pussy had vanished.
"She's scared and has crawled into
a hole in the wall," said the practical
Just then little reter Keiger hap
pened along and peered down the well,
1 "What's doing?" little Peter nuked
"Poor pussy Is In the well," cried all
the women together.
"I'll save her," said Peler, heroic
Several hugs were his first reward.
Other coachmen were called. They got
a long rope, tied it fast under little
Peter's arms and lowered him into the
well. He, swung like a clock pendu- 1
him and scratched his elbows. and|
bumped his nose and hurt hit» toes
against the sides of the well. Hut be
low sounded the imploring "meow
meow" and Peter never quailed.
He touched bottom finally. The un
grateful cat humped herself in a bow
and, with her tall as big as a bologna,
spit at little Peter and scratched his
helpful hands. Ho got the cat by the
back of the neck, gave the slgnHl,
three Jerks on the rope, and the coach
men pulled him up. More hugs.
"Here's a dollar for you, my brave
boy." exclaimed Miss Hallenbeek.
fondling the cat.
. "I don't want It, ma'am," said he
roic, little Peter.
The dollar wus forced on him. Two
minutes later humane little Peter
rushed Into a candy store and sulil,
"Olm'me— a quarter's worth— of, 11
corlce. It was easy money."
