A Little Boy Killed by a Horse and
his Skull Crashed.
Thomas, a nine-year-old son of Robert
Cotti ogham, purveyor of the Water De
partment, was kicked by a horse, about
5.39 o'clock, last evening, and fatally
njured. At the time of the iccarreuoe the
little fellow was playing on the lot be
tween Jackson and Van Buren streets,
where the horse that caused the terrible
damage was roaming at will. Wm. F.
Forsyth, member of the Board of Educa
tion from the Eleventh ward, who lives
near by, was looking out of bis back
window at the time, and saw the horse
kick and at the same lime thought be
something fall, but bis curiosity was
not specially aroused until he saw the
horse kick again, iu a very vicious mau
mer. He then went out into the lot and
saw the boy lying unconscious upon the
ground, while the horse, on seeing the
mau approach,ran away. As Mr. Forsyth
drew near, a pull of wind blew the boy's
bat off, revealing a ghastly wound In the
lei. temple,from which blood and brains
were slowly oozing. Mr. Forsyth at
once picked the boy up iu his arms and
carried Ids to the office of Wm. Y. War
ner', morocco works, Maryland, Avenue
and Beech streets, where Dr. Willard
Springer wes summoned by telephone.
The physician soon arrived, but saw at
once there wa, no hope of the hoy's le
covery, his skuii being badly ciusbed.
Mr. Forsythe afterwards carried the
little fellow io bis parents' house, corner
of Maryland Avenue and Liberty street,
where he lingered through the night iu

counts he was still alive,but his recovery
was not for an instant expected. He was

Price« Fixed by tbe Board or

Last evening a committee of tbe
Board of Health, consisting ot Dr.
Springer and Johu Otto, met iu the

of fixing a scale ol prices for clean iug
cesspools. There were presented at Lhe
meeting the following owners of Odor
less Excavators : Lentz aud Doordac,
Daniel P. Hamilton, Jenkins A Co., aud
Charles D. Aguess.
After interchange of views the com
mittee fixed the prices at IJ cents per
gsilou, and 10 cents per cubic foot. The
committee also decided that each com
pany shall make a report to the secretary
of the Board every three mouths, stating
ilie number of cess-pools cleansed during
that time, the name of the owner, and
quantity removed. A code of rules were
also drawu up which will be presented

Page & Sou, of New York, and it be
ing ascertained that this firm had
been well rated by the mercantile
agencies, and that the notes were
genuine, the carriages were shipped at
Busbnell's order to East Orange, N.

security of the notes, procured a
special report from a commercial

Son bad become a stock company ;
that the business hH been embar

doubtful value. Suspecting that

for his property. Four of the buggies
were fouud at a carriage depository iu

At Fouutainebleu we enter the dis

stone walls are built about six feet
high to whhh the vines are trained.
There are miles and mileB of these

where we enter the "Cote d' Or," the
Burgandy wine district, where the

aud many other of the finest wines are
produced. These vines are hot sbel

trellesed mountain sides. These trGi
leses are the result of incredible labor.
There are sometimes more than a hun
dred of Ihwm between the valley and
the mountain top, and they extend for
more than a hundred miles along the
Rhone valley. The vines are now
about one foot iu height. They are
allowed to grow to three feet, aud bear
from one to three buuohes each, of
from oue to four pounds to the bunch.
We were advised to drink the wine

they find

raising their families.
A11 along the valley of the Rhone
marches t ie vestigés of
more savage generation than those
who inhabit the smiling homes in
these now fertile fields. Almost every

orchards extend southward for about

Yesterday inoruitig about 9 o'clock,
Johu Mealey, driver of tbe Weccai oe

might have resulted more scrioi's than

He was driving the company's furni

when near {Seventh the bolt that attaches

pole was pulled from position. The
double trees dropped upon the bind legs
of the horses, and they made a sudden

was the matter the driver fouud him.elf

with his hand upon Lhe gtouud.
Wheu the accident happened Mr.
Mealey wr* sitting with bis feet on the
footboard of the wa^on, aud he was
pulled forward, his feet caught in tbe
guard on the footboard, which prevented
him from falling to the ground, and left
him suspended as described above. Wbeu
the horses fouud that they were loose,
they started down IFashiugion street on

"Silently Steals Away" During
the Night.
There came to this city two or
three years ago, a Hebrew named
Aaron Cohen. Like most of his tribe
he opened a'merchaut tailoring, and
ready made ciothiug house at the
N. Ê. corner of Second and Market
At first every thing seemed to
prosper with him, but gradually the
purchasers began to drop off, and
trade was slipping from his grasp,
aud obligations were accumulating
to a considerable exteut, until the
debit column of his private account
book showed considerable more than
the credit column.
lie finally to reduce his expenses
on March 25th last he removed from
Second and Market street to a small
store on Seventh street, just east ot
Marketjbelongiug to John B. Lewis.
Here he sold clothes by sample,con
sequently he had very little stock
on hand. This failed to have the
desired effect, and his creditors be
came clamorous for that which was
duo them.
Not having the mouey to pay
them Mr. Cohen, began to look
around for some means whereby he
could defeatUhem. He came to the
conclusion that he had better enact
the rule of the Arab, aud "silently
fold his tent and steal away."
Consequently some time duriug
yesterday he packed up his household
good and shipped them away. In the
meantime Edward T. Righter who
sells goods on the installment plau at
No 2 E. Seventh sued out a foreign
attachment for Cohen, ou a bill of $11
for furniture. The warraut was
placed in the hands of constable Neary
and last evening he aud Righter, were
near Cohen's store uutil after 12 o'
clock hoping that their man would
make his appearance. Some time after
12 o'clock they both proceeded to
where Cohen lived ou Sixth street be
low Walnut I Linking that he would
be there. W bile they were gone Cohen ■
entered the store, aud after gathering
together all the valuable goods he
had on hand, stole forth with them
under hisarm and he has been seen
no more in this city.
He left a number ol of unpaid bills
behind him, amoug them being m arly
a mouths rent to Mr. Lew is and a bill
of $19 to Mr. Righter. It is reported
that he has gone to take up his resi
dence in Fottstowu. This is ibe se
