Local Society Aaka Aid in Giving
Children Outing in Country.
The Michigan Fresh Air society Is
arranging to commence the season s
work. During the past 12 years up
wards of 4,000 children have been
made happy by a pleasant, healthful
outing In the country. Several have
found permanent homes, and many
have remained throughout the sum
mer. The recipients of this charity,
■children of the worthy poor, have no
other chance of getting away from
their crowded, unsanitary surround
ings. and the short vacation in the
country has a wonderful effect upon
their health.
During the past year the families of
the unemployed have suffered much
hardship, and the children show ur
gent need of fresh air and wholesome
lood. For the sake of these little ones,
a special appeal is made this year to
the generous people in the country
districts to co-operate with the society
in this worthy cause.
The work of the society Is conduct
ed In much the same manner as In
other large cities; that Is, the society
provides transportation to and from
the homes, while homes are provided
by charitably inclined residents of the
small towns, by farmers who are In
terested in doing something for poor
children There is no expense or obli
gation upon those taking children ex
cepting their board and keeping for
the time being. Great care is exercis
ed in the sending of children, and ev
ery effort is made to secure only the
most deserving and needy. Further
particulars may be obtained by ad

Fired Cuiiefs Into Barber Shop, Graz
ing Barber’s Head.
After one of the most rapid trials
ever held In the recorder’s court, Jos
eph Caruso was found guilty, late i
Thursday night, of the charge of as
sault with intent to do great bodily
harm. The Jury was out only 10 min
utes. Caruso was remanded for sen
tence later.
Caruso is the young Italian charged
with firing a bullet through the win
dow of Neapolltano Graciano’s barber'
shop, just grazing Graciano's head, as
the barber was shaving a customer.
Earlier in the day, there had been a
quarrel because Graclano scolded Ca
ruso for tearing up some bills which
lay on a table In the barber shop.
Graclano is very deaf, but followed
all of, the testimony In the case by
reading the Ups of the different wit
nesses and attorneys. The case was
started by Judge Connolly at 7 o'clock
Thursday evening.
Barnum A Bailey Circus Is a City in
The Barnum & Bailey Greatest
Show on Earth, when all its tents are
In place, covers 14 acres of real es

canvas pavilion ever constructed. It
seats 15,000 people with comfort and
in Its arena aro three rings, two
stages, a half-mile rare course and a
labyrinth of trapeze and bar riggings
that fills the great dome.
Besides the exhibition tents, the
strange white city has Its office, dyna
mo plant, postoffice, two laundries,
blacksmith shop, gas generating plant,
harness shop, four barber shops, a
library, a hospital, paint shops, doc
tors’ office, carpenter shop, dentnl par
lor, hotel where 5,000 meals are serv
ed dally, tailor shop and general
Each season the circus averages 60,-
000 miles of travel. In its
fifty-four years it has vjslted
nearly every civilized country on
earth. It Is as wcil-known In Europe
nnd Asia as It Is in Its home coun
try. No adequate idea can be had of
the wonderful system that has made
It possible to transport, build up and
tear down each day this vast city of
world wonders. It is the great policy
of the stalwart P. T. Barnum and the
Indomitable energy and business
acumen of James A. Bailey, still the
active principle of the present man
agement, that his fixed this circus In
the hearts of three-quarters of the peo
ple of the earth.

Nunzia De Michele Convicted of
Shooting at Former Lover.
It was a severe shock to Nunzia De
Michele when the Jury in Judge Con
nolly's court returned, late Thursday
afternoon, with a verdict pronouncing
her guilty of shooting at Matteo Din
olfo, her former lover, "with intent to
do great bodily harm, lees than mur
Nunzia, the roly-poly, 16-year-old Ital
ian girl, almost collapsed when the
verdict was announced. The trial, up
to that point, had betn sort of a gar
den festival for hci.
The sob-squad was most active In
Nunzia's behalf, and she used to
road with calm and serene delight
their descriptions of her eyes and her
gestures and her sauciness. Occa
sionally—not more than three or four
times a day—she would pose for her
photograph, to embellish some now
sob-squad effort. The aob-squaddem
assured her that she would never he
convicted, and led Nunzia to believe
that It waa the cutest thing in the
world to empty n revolver at an in
tended victim, and then he tried, and
photographed, nnd rnved over.
But that verdict was different.
Kurfzia will not go to Jail. Her hail
of SI,OOO was continued, and a 30-day
delay toward anew trial was granted.
Child Reunite* Parent*.
A marriage license was taken out
Thursday afternoon by F. Brenlnger,
who named as his bride, Emma San
ger Brenlnger, his former wife. Mrs.
Brenlnger secured a divorce from her
husband In Mt. Clemens In March,
1907, after they had lived together for
two years, charging him with drunk
enness. Aided by his employer, State
Senator W. Snell, of High
land Park, Brenlnger attended an in
stitution and was cured of the habit
which wrecked his home. Then the
love for his child took him to Mt.
Clemens. These visits became more
frequent, and Mrs. Brenlnger noticed
her husbnnd * changed condition. Her
old love for him returned, and the vis
it to the marriage license clerk was
the result. They were remarried by
Rev. H. C. F. Ott, Thursday afternoon,
and after a second honeymoon, on
which they will be accompanied by
their girl of four, they will resume
housekeeping on Church-ave., High
land Park.

| Option Clause in Old Detroit Rail
way Franchise Is “Joker” If Lines
Are Re-Routed.
A question which may enable the
D. U. R. to contest legally with the
city for the possession of almost all
the streets on which franchises expire
within the next few years, will be
iai*ed in case the common council
adopts the new car routing plan ar
tanged by the mayor's Committee of
50 as a basis for anew settlement.
It was stated by Mayor Thompson
during the last campaign that Presi
dent Hutchins, of the D. U. R.. had
offered to take over anew franchise
with the old Detroit railway terms.
Presumably the disposition of the
1). U. R. is still the same.
In the Detroit railway franchise is
a clause which gives the three-cent
fare company an option on any "new”
routes. The legality of this option is
in doubt, of course. Corporation Coun
sel Hally is of the opinion that it is
not valid, basing his view on a court
decision which ruled that the ordi
nance of 1862, giving the Citizens’
Street Railway Cos. the exclusive right
to run street cars In Detroit, was noc
binding. The two cases differ, how
ever, in many points, and there seems
no doubt but that the adoption of a
lot of new routes would give the D.
U. R. a chance to take the matter into
