It was in IHttsbnrg some seven years
ago that my wife woke me up one night
and said that our little boy was very
cack and vroal 1 1 go tor a doctor. I said
of course I would, and slipping into my
clothes I grabbed my hat and started
out. When I reached the first corner, I
passed a K ranger who was running the
other way. I cut diagonally across the
street and ran toward the center of
town. Pretty soon I heard footstep
tome distance back, and then several
shots were fired. I felt as though some
one had thrown a stone and struck me
on the leg, but I couldn't run any more
worth a cent. I stumbled down an.l
then drawing myself up put my hand
where I feli the pain and found that my
leg was moist with blood. I easily real
ized that I was shot. The rvssess r of
the revolver drew up before me panting
for breath and eicliitaed, "You will rob
people, will you?' It was. a ixdieeniaa.
I began to upbraid hiia civet thoroughly.
Explanations nor execrations did not

a patrol to tie station. I repeated my

be sent to ry lu sisv. The desk sergeant

came by the station. It did not take me
long to convince the station officers that
