JUSTICE M HOYS DOXTS.
■ 'Kuks for M Onerous Boy* —'A
« Newsy's Comment.
" Most childish law br«^iklng comes from
thoughtlessness— thouß/htl€r*ness and ignorance
"of the laws, according to Justice McAvoy. who
Is sitting this month in the Court of Special Ses
sions. Children's far;.
"Few children." said Justice* Me A voy yester
flay, "plan deliberately to commit offences
against the law. Lots of t'nings beqame crimes in
X«w York that would be perfectly innocent in a
country village or on a Western ranch. While
there is no general warning 1 could give that
would keep boys «an<l girls out of trouble, there
are a whole lot of i things which, if they could re
member them, would help to keep them out of
the Children's Court.'
Thereupon Just ike McAvoy made: up a list of
"Don'ts" from tLe things boys do out of Igno
rance or thoughtlessness. "Only," added the jus
tice, "if Juvenile law breaking is to stop It la
the parents who must start the reform. In a
majority of cases the children wou!d never get
Into mischief at ali if *he parents did their duty
by them."
Here are Justice M<?A.voy < s "Don'ts":
Don't play "cat" in the street. You may blind
tome one. : .-; •
Don't throw stones in \intcrscnool fights.
Don't solicit transfers at streetcar division
points. \ • '„ ,
Don stick burrs in thethair of .street or 'L.
car passen?er». .
Don't play with fire or -build bonfires in the
street. '
Don't "flip" streetcars
Don't shoot air guns or slingshots.
Don't write on the sidewalk or draw pictures
there.
Don't throw marble "skimmers" from the
windows of "L," cars. It Is the height of wan
tonness, for you can't fee what you hit if you
do hit anything.
Don't try to play baseball in the streets.
Don't throw decayed fruit or vegetables at
streetcar passengers.
Don't lounge on/eal<">or. corners.
Don't fire off guns or fireworks before or after
July 4.
Don't swear.
Don't go swimming nude.
Don't hang around pool parlors and cheap mu
seum!?.
Don't carv? or scratch names or initials on
buildings.
Don't stay out late at night.
Don't shoot crap?.
Don't smoke cigarettes.
Don't 'Tush the can"— not even your own.
Don't climb lampposts to blow out the light
Don't turn on the lire hydrants.
Don't pull flowers in the parks.
Don't sleep out at night.
Don't climb the park trees or cut them.
Don't throw stones.
This list was shown a "newsy" on Park Row.
with the query, "What do you think of it?"
"Ah. beat it'" he exclaimed, contemptuously,
his bright blue eyes running rapidly down the
list. "Wot does a feller like him know about de
kid on de pike, anyhow? We ain't no Sunday
school scholars— sure not. but we ain't bums,
neither. An' we got our tinkin* outfits in our
top stories, see? All de Xoo York kids asks of
anyone is 'Hand us out a square.' If a feller
gits de square at home and from de cop on his
block he ain't goto' ter hit de Juveyni'e court
quick. De odder I— well, de on'y ting he
cares fer is de cop wid do big stick. It's skiddoo
23 to any don'ts for his."

With the exception of those who hippene'd to

pitchers, all the patrons of" the Hotel Martha

HEAT KILLS EIGHTEEN.
Chicago Leads List, with Ten Vic
tims — Boston Has One.
Chicago. Aug. ».— Heat In Chicago to-day was re
sponsible for ten deaths and twenty-nine prostra
tions. As early as 11 o'clock in the forenoon the
thermometer at the Weather Bureau registered 31
decrees. It remained at this point for four hours,
when the M mark was reached, Later in the day
a shower and a breeze brought some relief, but the
forecast for to-morrow calls for a continuation of
the hot wave.
Boston. Aug. 22.— On© death and an attempted
suicide from the heat were reported during the early
part of the day. The humidity continued oppres
sive at 87 to-day, and at noon the thermometer was
SI at the Weather Bureau, as compared with «8 at
the same time yesterday.
Detroit. Aug. 22.— There wos little relief to-day
from the intense heat which has prevailed over
Ixjwer Michigan for several days. Robert MacKim
mfe dropped dead from heat in Washington Boule
vard to-day, the second heat victim in twenty-four
hours. Practically every Iron working manufac
tory in the city Is shut down and about thirty
thousand men are idle until the weather moderates.
Geneva, N. T., Aug. 22.— The mercury registered
97 degrees in the shade here, to-day.
St. Louis, Aug. 22. — One death and two pros
trations are to-day's heat record. Two prostra

FOH IXSULTINQ FLAG.
Small Riot on Broadway — SLy So
cialists Arrested.
Six persons were arrested and locked up in
the Tenderloin police station last night, charged
with disorderly conduct in hoisting a red flag
over two American flags and holding a meeting
without a permit. Many socialists gathered last
night at SSth 6treet and Broadway to hold a
meeting. Before the meeting was called, ac
cording to several eyewitnesses, a red flag was
pnt over two American flags by two of the
socialists, at the suggestion of several of their
friends.
A large crowd saw tho red flag, and in a few
minutes there were several hundred persons
hooting and jeering the socialists.
A patrolman from the Tenderloin happened
along and made attempts to disperse the crowd.
Not until six of them had been arrested and the
red flag taken down did the crowd decide to
move.
Among those arrested are Samuel Stover, of
No. 4 West USth street; Thomas Flynn, Michael
Cody of No. 292 Eighth avenue; Elizabeth
Flyiin. of No. 75 East 134 th street, and Minnie
T. Schloss, of 161 st street, The Bronx.
COOL sriiU'AY STATIOXS.
Elaborate Plan at Brooklyn Bridge
Tested — Not Yet Complete.
Chief Engineer Rice of the Rapid Transit Com
mission "blew off" a Tribune, reporter by start
ing up the cooling plant Ht the Brooklyn Bridge
station of the subway yesterday afternoon. He
gave the order to start the big blower which has
been set in position on the west side and near
the north end of the station. For the rest of
the afternoon there was a breeze at the station.
The blower sucked a current of fresh air
through an opening in tho roof of the station,
forced it through a chamber containing coils of
water pipe and then on through a long, ram
bling chute of galvanized iron Just beneath the
station roof, over the downtown platform. From
openings In the bottom of the chute the air was
impelled down by the action of the blower.
There was a noticeable change In the air of the
station, although the air was not cooled much
by passing through the chamber containing the
colls of water pipes. Mr. Ric,e explained that
the pumps whl< i h were intended to keep water
running through the colls had failed to work.
Plans for the cooling plant included pumps
which could drive water from a deep well at the
north end of the station through the coils at
the rate of 300 gallons a minute. The pumps
could not be manufactured in the time permit
ted by the contract, so an effort was made to
start the plant with smaller temporary pumps.
The result was that the coils were not supplied
properly with cold water yesterday, and the air
forced over the coils was not chilled.
"We shall have the larger pumps In operation
in a few days/ Mr. Rice said, "and then the air
at the station will be cooled 10 or 14 degrees by
the action of the plant."
The plant at the Brooklyn Bridge station Is
meant as an experiment. If It succeeds In keep-
Ing the air at the station cool during the warm
weather expected in September, similar plants
will be In operation at other stations of the
subway next summer, Mr. Rice says. The cost
of operating such a plant is not great, as the
blowers and pumps are run by electricity sup
plied through the third rails.
YALE GRADUATE IN HORSESHOEING
Police Court Prisoner Wears Blue Jersey
with Big "V" on Front.
Michael White. janitor of No. 474 West 14* th
street, was arrested on Tuesday by Patrolman
Ryan, of the West 152 d street station, on complaint
of Roundsman Bergman, of the Central Park police,
who accused the Janitor, who stands six feet six
Inches high, of having attacked him with an iron
br.r and a can of beer. When arraigned before
Magistrate Cornell, in the Harlem court, yesterday.
White wore the sleeveless Jersey of Yale blue with
the big "V" adorning the front which only man
agers of athletic teams and others who have at
tained honors at Yalo are allowed to wear.
Magistrate Cornell asked the prisoner:
"Whore did you get that 'V'?'"
"I got that 'V' in college," responded White.
"What college?"
"At Yale." said White.
"What course did you take?"
"Horseshoeing," replied White, without a smile.
Magistrate Cornell then held White, graduate
from Yale's horseshoeing class. in $300 bail to keep
the peace for six months.

IIAHLEM FLEA PLACVF.
Upper West Side Victim of Biting,
Jumping Pest.
Fleas have Invaded Harlem and are actively en
gaged In making life unpleasant for residents of
the West Side all the way from 110 th street to
Washington Heights. More annoying than the fly
and more persistent than the mosquito Is the Har
lem flea. He resembles the fabled flea of the Celt,
because when one catches him he is not there, and
he has more lives than are credited to the cat.
When he Is killed the pressure required often leaves
a black and blue mark on the finger.
No respecter of persons is he. And. ptrange to
«ay, only one portion of a person's anatomy Is at
tacked. The feet and lower limbs seem to be spe
cially attractive. These Harlem fleas often select
one member of a family and confine all their at
tentions to that one person. Whether this is done
from motives of consideration for the other mem
bers Is not known.
Just what branch of the flea family the Harlem
band belongs to or whither they come no one
knows. Their first appearance was about a week
ago, so far as records are obtainable.
Borne of tnose who are involuntarily entertaining
them think they are sand fleas, and migrate from
heaps of sand outside of buildings la course of
construction. Others think they come from cats or
dogs, but this theory is scorned by victims who
neither keep such pets nor go near them.
At the entomological department of the Park De
partment yesterday it was impossible to learn much
that would throw light on the subject. If one of the
fleas was produced, dead or alive, it would be ex
amined and classified, but otherwise It was difficult,
from mere general description, to trace the pedigree
of the flea that is making the lives of Hariemites
miserable.
MRS. VERRAULT S FRIEND HELD.
Mrs. Brown to Plead To-morrow to Char??
cf Scaling Lace.
Mrs. Izella M. Brown, friend of Mrs. Verrault,
was arraigned before Magistrate Crane in the West
Side court yesterday morning, on a charge of grand
larceny. She did not plead to the charge of steal
ing $300 in laces and embroideries from Abdullah
Habeeb, a Syrian merchant, of No. 88 Greenwich
street, as her lawyer. Mr. Valentine, asked that the
case be adjourned until to-morrow afternoon at 2
o'clock. The request was granted, and Mrs. Brown
was released In {COO ball.
As Mrs. Brown entered court she was served with
papers in supplementary proceedings by C. La Rue,
a lawyer representing Frank J. Walton, who alleges
she obtained meat from him to the value of 51TA
Walton is a butcher at 88th street and Broadway.
Three, other Syrians, it is said, will appear against
Mr 3. Brown to-morrow. Two of them were in court
yesterday. Each said that Mrs. Brown obtained
laces and embroideries valued at $150 from them.
They Mid they were A. Hamra and Souisl Rahal,
merchants, with offices at No. 36 Rector street.
DEAD MAN FOUND TO BE MISER
Ex-Tirket Chopper Lived with Utmost Fru
gality, but Leaves Three Bank Accounts.
In the room In the Gerard Lodging House, at No.
2374 Third avenue, where he had lived for twenty
six years in apparent poverty, William E. Whit
aker. fifty years old. died last night from an acute
kidney disease. Though he had lived with the ut
most frugality, when his effects were searched by
the police three bank books, showing deposits in
his name In as many banks to the amount of $7,411,
were found. Such was his miserly spirit, however,
that yesterday afternoon, when a fellow lodger
thought him 111 and suggested that a physician be
called, Whitaker repulsed the suggestion and shut
his door in his adviser's face.
Last evening the clerk discovered that Wliitaker
was suffering from convulsions, and was in a
critical condition. He telephoned to the Harlem Hos
pital for an ambulance, and Dr. Ginsberg respond
ed. Whitaker died a few minutes after the surgeon
reached him.
Whitaker was a ticket chopper on tjn- Third
Avenue Elevated Railway until he lc»st his place
two years ago.
Besides the bank hooks the police found In his
poeketbook a $50 hill, a $10 and $1 bill and some
silver. The police will try to find his heirs

about the state ot his health. lUs affairs in this

PLAYED GHOST AND WERE SPANKED
Children Scared Residents of K"utley, N. J.,
with Dummy on Vacant lot.
( By Te!*STiij,li to Th« Tribune.]
Nutley. X. J.. Aug. 22.— The ghost that has been
terrifying this town for weeks was laid to-night
when the police force, led by Chief Knapp. dis
covered that two children, the son and daughter
of a well known Nutley resident, had been op
erating a dummy in a vacant lot all the time.
The children were taken home and soundly
spanked, and the ghost that has held undisputed
■way over a vacant lot on russule avenue will
walk no mote. g££4Egj
The children, whose motive has not been ex
plained, made the ghost out of a large wooden
figure, wolch they covered with white drapery.
They tied strings to Its arm* and waved the
white cloths around in the most approved ghost
fashion. The only time any one mustered up
sufficient courage to investigate, thf boy. who
lias a deep voioe, sounded a warning In such
sepulchral tones that they were left in security.
he police chief, however, screwed his courage
to th" sticking I'Oint lust night, and hid himself
behind some bushes in the vacant lot until the
"K'tiost" appeared.
