At tho corner of Fourteenth and Pop.

tween two negro women occurred which
was quick, decisive and destructive of
female head gear and wearing apparel to
a surprising extent. The fight was over
before a crowd could gather and hardly a
word was spoken by either of the con
testatits. In this case it was learned that a
man was at tho bottom of the trouble. It
is believed, but not known, that these two
women and tho man are tho same that
caused a series of scnes on Washington
Avenuo above Fourteenth sd Tuesday night.
Tho man and one of tho women were walk
