the body of ten-year-old Theresa Mc
Carthy to-day stands where her
Christmas tree stood a few hours ago
In the living room of her homo at
No. 563 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn,
Detectives who havo put In more
than twenty-four hours on the mys
tery would not bo surprised to learn
"that among tho sad-faced little
''mourners Is tho playmate believed to
.havo shot Theresa by accident. But
v.jt may bo a day or two before he or
' ' 'She-has the courage to come forward
""and tell tho truth.
." ' " The llttlo girl's funeral will be held
lo-morrow at St. Cecilia's Church.
. The Ansel Sodality, of which sho was
"a member, will attend In a body. The
burial will bo In Calvary Cemetery.
Tho detectives have found among:
. the tenants of tho hourfe next door to
' the McCarthy home an employee of
'' "the Dock Department who told them
.he had spent most of the day at tho
window of his home reading' the news
papers. Ho did not hear a shot nor
did ho hear Theresa's llttlo dog bark
ing. The" Investigators believe that
the sound of tho shot would hardly
have attracted tho attention of any
body on the street becauso the street
has a heavy automobile traffic and
.any explosion would be attributed to
, back-firing motor.
"My investigation." announced
Capt,. Dan Carey to-day, "leads mo
to believe that this llttlo girl was
killed by another child, most likely a
boy, who owned a toy gun and who
became frightened when the girl fell
mortally wounded and ran away."
Scores of detectives havo been
questioning children In tho neighbor
hood In an effort to find some boy
who had a toy gun or a small calibre
pistol such as might have held the
bullet that killed tho girl. They havo
canvassed tho neighborhood three
blocks each way, and to-day will
question children of St. Cecilia's
Ifarochlal School In hope they may
help clear up tho mystery-

Ihoro Christmas Day, playing with
loys her father and aunt had. for her.

Tuesday night and detectives corrob
orated his story In detail. Othurs

Atoms, Like Billiard Balls,

Hold That Baldness Cannot Be Cured and Point Out
That Our Span of Life is Longer Large Men
Not the Best Salesmen.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 28.
Here nro bomo facts and theories brought out by the American
Association for the Advancement of Science In its latest session:
When atoms of various kinds collide they act liko billiard balls,
sometimes making caroms, sometimes "follow" shots, sometimes
'drpw allots rnd sometimes they break In pieces
Atom moving at 20,000 miles an hour can be photographed
even for the movies.
Baldness cannot bo cured by shaving, by vaseline, by "creams"
or by sunburn. It baldness can bo cured at all, the method was not
made public.
Largo, heavy men aro not the best salesmen. The Ideal height for
a salesman Is 5 feet and 9 Inches, "with appropriate weight."
