THE VISITING NURSE ASSOCIATION
IS CARRYING ON DESERVING WORK
KIDS ALL WANT POLICE JOBS
Many Maka Application to Chief of

Owing to tho vigilance of the "boy
efflcera" but very little damage vai
wrought by Hallowe'en vandals last
night, and the annual evening set
Piide for purposes of destroying prop
erty was one of the most peaceful in
the history of the city. Not a single
an est was made aad no complaints
were registered up until 10 o'clock.
After that hour, a gang of young fel
lows, who had been attending a dance,
formed a parade and with tin cans and
other noise making contrivances, pa
raded through the streets and wound
up in the lobby of the New Harper
hotel. They were quickly dispersed,
however, and no harm was done.
The boys of the city were all
anxious to Join the police force for
the evening. About 7:30 p. m., four
'kids" were observed lurking around
the police station. They gradually
edged nearer, but seemed afraid to
enter the place. Finally, however, one
of their number came up, knocked at
the door and was granted admittance.
At this three other boys, his compan
ions, also edged in the door and sidled
up to the chief.
"Do you need any more policemen,
Mie'.er Thief?" queried the spokf Emun.
"Yes, we do," replied Brinn, "but
we have 20 boys out on the Job now
and have run out of stars."
"Well, could we work without
stirs?" was tte comeback.
"You bet." said the chief, "you go
out now and get busy."
Two hours later, the Inds reported
at the station and not seeing the chief,
approached the desk of the nicht ser
geant, and after considerable hern
lning and hawing, chorused. "We want

and dubbed him a regular genius.
Many were the medals which he an
nexed for the quality of his work, and
the critics predicted for him a great
and useful future.
After the art school and the leading
devotees of the brush had taught the
boy all they could, with his ambition-
still unsatiated, Frank decided to take
a post-graduate course to round out a
brilliant career and contracted a cor
respondence course In sign painting.
It was then that he reached the zenith
of his career. There he would sit in
his studio, puffing away at a cigaret
and gaily painting Bull Durham stud
ies, producing beautiful portraits of
Henry George, and creating studies

overcoat which was hanging on a peg
and attempted to dispose of it, when
Detective Henry Sehnert, ever watch

and took him to Jal-ul.
His case has been continued for 10
days and a bond of $500 remains be
tween Frank and liberty.
Gets Away Yesterday After
noon While Working on
With the thermometer dropping
swiftly and the chilly breezes flirting
up and down his spinal column, Ed
ward Matson, sentenced a few days
ago for wife beating, yesterday grew
tired of "making little ones out of big
ones" on the Sears road, and taking
advantage of a temporary lapse of vig
ilance on the part of the guard, sneak
ed out at sight and fled. His success
ful break for liberty occurred about
3 o'clock in the afternoon, and as the
guard was unable to leave the rest of
the "jail gang" to take up the pursuit,
the fugitive was offered a golden op
portunity to make a clean getaway,
and took advantage of it.
The police have traced the fugitive
and expect to land him before night,
and it Is A foregone conclusion that
the insurrecto who has chafed at the
bonds of serfdom will be given steady
employment for aome daya to come.

Charged with stealing a pocket book,
containing about $25, from a fellow
roomer, James Walsh is being held by
the local police pending an investi
gation. He can also qualify as one
of the "meanest men."

Across the hall two government em-;
ployes, who have been working on a 1
dredge near Falrport, have quarters. I
One of them, John Schwartz, received
his pay Wednesday and upon retiring
put his pocketbook in his inside vest
pocket. When he awoke the next
morning it was gone. Yesterday '
Walsh, who is being held by the po-:
lice, solicited alms for the purpose of
purchasing groceries and was tender- i
ed a $10 bill. Not content with re-1
ceiving this aid, Walsh is alleged to j
have pocketed the change. $6.15, and i
started for a saloon to invest it. Here ,
he was found and the money taken 1
away from him by the owner. j
Believing that a man who would so-1
licit alms and then run away with
the change, would be capable of any-1
thing, Schwartz had the man arrested ,
on the assumption that he (Walsh) i
had also gone south with the purse.
