Among the mm ot men there is
none who really knows a great city
except the man who has been a re
porter In It He has sounded Its
depths. He has come to know the
house of crime, the house of worship,
and the house of festlral. He Is fa
miliar with the church and with the
nether world. He has seen the great
er and the lesser wheels ot adminis
trative machinery In motion. He has
learned how to reach that supreme po
tentate, tho police sergeant, behind
his desk, and how to unravel and knit
together the varying tales of bystand
ers. The streets of the city are known
to him, bared in gray morn, when the
vast commissary of a great city Is
converging on the markets, thronged
by the rising and ebbing tides of

Policemen in West Philadelphia
who escaped electrocution the other
night consider themselves exceedingly
fortunate. In seme way a police tele
phone wire had become heavily charg
ed by a feed wire. One patrolman
was killed by a shock which he re
ceived upon inserting the key into the
patrol box. Another was knocked un
conscious. A sergeant answering the
telephone calls at the station house
was thrown across the room. Many
on the circuit who received only slight
shocks attribute their immunity to the
circumstarce that they had on rubber
boots. It was a very serious situation,
and illustrates what may happen at
