dan LEDGER EVENING PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1914. PRICE ONE CEJSTT BOY BRAVELY WAITS END OF LONG BATTLE TO SAVEBDRNED LEG Little Hero Hopeful That Removal of Bandages To day Will Show He Is Not to Be a Cripple. &2si ? '.aHHel I.VU TRAIN ENDS LIFE OF DALLAS, $20 CLERK, SUED FOR $60,000 Wife and Several Hundred Persons See Him Virtually Cut in Half at Sixtieth Street Station. DON'TS FOR CHILDREN TERSELY TOLD BY THE CAMERA KENNETH REDAMAR A wide-oed and hopeful little boy sits on an Invalid's chair in the sunlight at tho Frankford Hospital today. With a toy dog clasped tightly In hi" arms ho mutely watches white-clad surgeons and nurses as they so from cot to cot com forting and relieving. With impatience he Is waiting until tho? come to him and unwind bandages from hi less; for what is found beneath will determine whether or not the little boy -will ever walk and play like other boys or be a hopeless cripple with one leg cruelly bent. The child's name Is Kenneth Redamar and he Is onl.v six ears old. He lived with his parents at 6031 Torresdale ave nue until early last Februnrywhen he was carried Into the hospital with one leg charred and burned and swathed in soft stuffs Plalng with schoolmates about a bonfire, lOnneth had cither fallen or been accidentally pushed into the blazing rile Frightened, his little comrades ran away crying, and Kenneth was left alone In terrible agony until a policeman carried him home. For a long time physicians feared Ken neth would not get well. The child lay still and white among the covers". Nurses sometimes cried because he suf fered so much pain. Persons marveled a.t the bravery and patience displajed by so small a Doy uaer sucn trying cn cumstances. BRAVERT WINS DOT'S BATTLE. It was this bravery and patience which finally turned the tide in favor of the child's recovery. Kenneth began to convalesce. His laugh of gle over gifts of fruit or flowers brought cheer to other little patients in the ward. His sunn smile was a lesson In fortltudo He became a great favor ite of all persons at the hospital. Sick folk raised their heads and spoke to him a sthe boy was wheeled by on his way to the sun parlor Then came the dav when Kenneth tried to walk What was eNpected to be foi him the dawn of happiness was turned Into a day of despair, when the watching doctors saw the child's leg was bent. Skin had contracted underneath the kne and Kenneth was unable to suetch hi leg out straight. His grief was pathetic. He tried hard not to ciy, but thf thought that he might for all time bo a cripple was too much, and the little patient buried his head in the pillows, and gieat sobs shook the wasted and frail body. For a time he could not be comfortnd. Even the toy dog which had been his constant companion was forsaken and left stand ins like a forlorn sentinel on a table. SCRGL'ONS TO THE UESCCE Then the surgeons took counsel to gether, and decided as a last resort a rare and delicate operation would bo performed in an endeavor to straighten the bent leg. Kenneth wh3 told he still had anothei chance His mother, who had been almost a dally visitor to the hospital, and whose grief was even si eat 'er than that of her sun when it was feared lu would be permanently lame, sat b the child's cot and held his hand while the two talked of the new chanc for complete recovery. The small pa tient oncn more took an interest In hla toys Again his childish laugh rang through the ward Day after day as the time for the operation approached Kenneth lined his wooden soldiers in battle array, saving- he, too, would some day be a. colonel and have a real regtment of his own. Then he left the toy dog to watch the army while he dlepu At last the day for the operation ar. rived "It is true that I am going to run and play again, isn't It doctor?" tremulously asked the child. And the surgeon who had heard so many ques. tlons just like Kenneth's smiled at the boy and said, "We'll see " CHILD'S SACRIFICE Po they wrapped the littlo sufferer In blankets and wheeled him to the operat ing room There in the presence of men of science small pieces of skin were cut from the good I of the unconscious child and grafted where the skin was drawn and contructed, underneath the knee of the leg which had been hurned. This was last week. Today the bandages will be removed and both Kenneth and those who hava taken such an inteiest in him will know whether or not ho will ever be able to run and play again If the condition of his (eg shows the operation to have been a success, the boy will be out of the hospital In two or three weeks. ', THE VITAL QUESTION ' It. Chicago business man, with many relatives, some of whom were well-to-do but grasping, recently sought the services of his lawyer to draw up his will When, after much labor, the docu ment was completed, the client asked: 'Have you fixed this thing as I wished It, tight and strong?" ' I luve done ni best." said the law jrr HVH cntinurd the client.

Dallas, of 1M5 North did street, tho former bookkeeper w I , whs being sued for JC'O.OiX) by the L. I' , v tilte Company, Jewelers, of Ninth nnd Cheatnut streets. Dnllns fell beneath the Main In such n. way that both suicide I and accident theories aie tenable I Dallas and his wife were on their way I to Norrlstown for the second day of the eiulty suit They were walking slowly a long the platform of the 01th ntieet sta tion nf the elcnted. As a westbound train dtow Into the station Dallas stepped to the edge of the platform nnd turned until his back was to the rails. Then ho toppled over Two cars passed over his body, virtually cutting him in half. Mrs. Dallas turned just In time to eeo her husband's body dropping over the edge of the platform The nejet Instant tho train shot past her. She became hysterical and was taken to her homo bj witnesses. The tnutlltatcd body waa taken to the morgue. FALL- SEEMED DELIBERATE. Men and women who saw Dallas fall to his death from the eastbound plat form say that his fall seemed to have been dollberately planned. They declare h" guaged the distance carefully so that his body would fall directly over the far track where he could not escape the wheels. The heavj train was under brakes at the time and was slowing up Owing to tls weight the motorman had not tho slightest chance to prevent the i killing. Passengers In the first two cars who felt the bump as the wheels went over the body and heard the terrified shrieks of women witnesses on both platforms rushed from the train. Traffic was tied up for some time until a patrol wagon arrived and the body could be removed Several women were taken away from the scene on the eige of collaps. DALLAS FACED TWO CHARGES The two different actions were under one against Dallas, one the equity suit and the other on criminal charges. He was under a total of J.VO0 bail on the charges of attempting to blow up the jewelry office where he had been era ploed, and embezzlement. It is be lieved that the fear of facing these criminal charges led him to take his life. A deire to softtn the blow to his wife is thought to have made him try to make his death look like an acci dent. Judge Aaron S Swartz. of the Mont gomeiy County Court at Norrist'.wn, ' where the equity case against Dallas was resumed yesterday, adjourned oouit to day, folliwing the receipt of news that , the defendant was dead Just what ! action will be taken now, atloinev for the plalntitts could not say this morn ing. It was mggested that terms in set- ' tl ment oftered by Dallas lat June, might njw be accepted from the estate. Dallas had soiie real estate, aero, ding to attorneys for the complainant .that has been tied uo In the chll suit. Thf equltv case against DaiUs to le cover $5ft,Wi he was. alleged to have em bezzled was started last spring at Nci ristown, but after one day the court ad journed for the summer. Immediately aftci that offers of settlement were made hy fiallas and were rejected as unsatis factory. OWNED AL'TO ON (V A WEEK. Dallas was, a bookWp3r in the employ of the jewelry Arm. In the testimony estorday it was biought out that ap pnently on nothing nut his small salary, SX a week, lit lied in sumptuuus stjle in Aidmore and owned un automobile. Dal las explanation was that lie made money on the side by acting as an expert ac countant to several Philadelphia fltms. His case was given a seveie blo.v when ieprsentatlves of these firms denied that he had ever been cmplojed by them. Every shred of paper containing evi dence of allesrd defalcations by Dallas has been lemoved from the books of the company, according to the testimony yes. terday. The belief that Dallas would try to shift the blame to Robert I i oates, manager of the White concern, was made more substantial yestordaj bj the testimony taken. The story of the attempted blowing up of the White office was not brought out vesterday. Mr i'oates began to tell it, but was halted bj counsel for Dallas, In tre pieliniinary criminal proceeding blark gunpowder bought by Dallas was Idrntlfled by the man who sold It to him This gunpowder, according to the testi mony, was found In a "bomb" thnt Mi f oates found attached to a burning fuse In the oWce of the jewelry Arm. Dallas had no children. Since the be. ginning of the two actions against him he had given up hi fine home at Ardmnre and moved to ni"-re modest dwelling at the 62d street address. izz&zi - :- - .v v Tr5 CbiW- JSH ' " - $& ; . ,?: I v. : , ; .f ' II , : "$$$$?; nLijt. f ''WW , H k !iHHilateb t WW m v'r SH m MlMHPKHIHHBlnKaiii Sis t I a WW i r "VHHHBtM."

RAILROAD DANGERS SHOWN BY PICTURES FROM REAL LIFE Friendly Talk to Boys and Girls Who Risk Their Lives Thoughtlessly in a Spirit of Fun or Adventure. GOOD HEAVENS! An elder! gentleman living In the north of England was passionately fond qf par roti,, says !ondon Ideas, Having both time and money at hs disposal h TSanlifd a parrot show, a five-pound note to be given to the owner of the bird whhh on the most auspicious day said the most appropriate thing. The show day arrived All sorts ind conditions of paifts wero arriving Just at the last moment a beautiful gray blid was brought in Qazing around in amazement, it save a shilll whistle anij exelalmed "Oood heavens, what a thundering lot of parrots'" N'cedletg to say. its owner got the cqv eted rtve-pound note. To save you from injury and possibly jour li'3, the Home and School League, children, have taken a number of photo, graphs of chlldien in dangerous posi tions, These small people may be playmates of yours. At any rate, jou will see, that many of you have done tho same foolish things that the boys in the pictures are doing. Trro is the little lad climbing up tho signal tuivor. His small dug wants to follow him. but can't. He may tamper with tho signals and the fuglno ilrivi-r then will becomo confused and wreck n'a.v follow which may cost many Hies, and many a hoy and girl will lose a father or a mother. Another picture shows two little boys trying to learn how cars are coupled. There is a locomotlie at the other end of tho train, It will start the cars mov ing and the boys will bo lucky If they aro not hurt. GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS "Are you aa perfect physically as you sem to be''' he asked "Certainly." she replied "lias there eer been any insanity in your fanillj ?" "NVvir " "Have you a deprav! last? of any Kind?" "Certainly not" "Are your teth in good condition and do you see and hear perfectly t" "Yes " Are ou ever bothert4 by insomnia or headache or indigestion?" ' Not at all " "Thank Heaven. Now let'B ms.k love a. little while."-Chlcao Rord-r!li PANonnora plav. Po ou see the boy with his foot fas. toned In the track If he had not been walking on tho railroad this would not haie happened. Should a tram come along befom ho could be freed this biy would surely lose his leg and per haps Ills life, lib Is only 5 years old, loo. Now do jnu tee the two boys stealing a ride. IVrhaps you would not do m foolish a thing. Onu boy has one font in tha s tin up and the other on the jour nal box right against the wheel The least Jolt will throw him under the train. The other boy is leaning out in such n way that lie may be struck b a car on the other track. Iloth tho boys may be killed for their folly. HEED THE SAFETY' GATES. Bvtry school boy or gitl will remember how they crowded about the safety gate? to watch a train pass. Here is a pic. 'turo taken Just after school was dis missed. All the boys and gir;s aro close to the gates. They wanted to get on tho track to see the train and to wave their hats to tho passengers. A police man Is keeping theni back. He Is a big and good-natured looking policeman, at that, and bo probably has at home chil dren JuBt about your age, arid he knows how dangerous It is to get close to the fast-rushing trains which pass In a cloud of dust. hen the grates are lowered do not go on the tracks, even though jou can't lee a train In sight AH these "letures are real pictures of boys and girls., and the camera reported them doing Just such silly things that a boy or girl will do SUDD? JOL.T MSA MS DEATH ? when they have not been told how wrong It is. WARNINGS KOH CIROWN-PPS. The league also has a message to the paients. It is not told In pictures, how eer, but Is in cold tpe, with llguies to substantiate every statement. The geneial conception is that nine tenths of the persons killed walking along the tracks are tiumps. Not 23 per tent, are tramps. The tramp knows the danger of trespanslng upon the railroads and, although he uses them ns his highways, he is cautious. riovcnty-tlve per cent, of the persons who are run down by trains ate chll dien, artisans, laborers nnd professional men, who attempted to use railroad prop eity as a shoit cut home or to work. It Is estimated that the productive -alue of a human life Is $13.onc). As 25 per cent, of the deaths are tramps, the value of the life of each trespasser Is reduced to a value of J10.000. The loss of llfo by railroad trespass In monetary figures in productive wealth is estimated at 3,V). fflO a year These figures do not show the burdens that are thrown on society or the homes which are ruined when a biendwlnner Is taken away. All manner of safeguards ar thrown about Industrial workers nowadays be cause from an economic standpoint life Is worth mone. All tho big factories aie teaching the "safety first" movement. A grown person does not learn a les son easily, but the Home and School League hopes to reach the children and through hin educate the parents. There are 10.CW persons killed each year ! the trains More than half are killed while trespassing. That means that every day In the year 15 persons are killed In the I'nlted States for nelng where they had no right, and where they Piobahl.v would not have ventured If they had thought of the danger or had It P .luted out to them THE CORRECT TIME Professor Turner had been spending the Christmas vacation in Egypt to super, vise the erection of a telescope at lielouan. Captain Lyons, who was In charge of the instrument, said that he had found that at noon every day a gun was fired, and was anxious to know how the sjstem worked. Accordingly, he Interviewed the gunner and asked how he knew when to give the signal "Oh. I look at my watch," said the official. "And how do you correct your watch?" asked the captain 'I take it to the maker in Cairo, and he tells me the error." Forthwith Captain I.ons interviewed the watchmaker and asked him how he checked the en or of the watch. "I gt the ccrrect tune from the gun," said that simple rraft'inn And thus time a told to Egypt-JJIontreal Standard. THE WEATHER Official Forecast WASHINGTON, Sept 2.'.

Qo ahead Nobody but Wasnet The 20 per cent, duty Imposed upon tho importation of diamonds has placed n premium 'upon tho smuggling of such stones, In tho opinion of illnmond ex perts of this city. George , A. Moore, of J. H. Caldwell & Co., believes that the Inciease In diamond smuggling since June 1 has been at least 25 per cent., and that before the end of the year It will have leached 50 per cent, A great number of arrests have been made in this countty lecently, and they show that the inventive genius of smug glers has been stimulated by the great opportunities for largo pioflts that aro offered undei the tariff, a point which is well lllustiated In one of tho recent ai rests, vvheie the smuggler had con cealed nn extremely valuable consignment of diamonds hy imbedding them In the plaster molding of a large picture frame. K. J. Dei let, of Maxwell & Herlet, was severe in his ciitlclsm of tho tatlff, point ing out that tho Government's income under a 10 per cent, tailtf was $1,000,000 anuuall), while under the 25 per cent, tniiff Imposed on these stones a number of ynars ago this Income dropped to $101, 000. a fact which he attributes to tho larg increase in smuggling and for the lenson thnt Individuals purchased their precious stones abroad, rather than in America. That tho inn cased cost of diamonds would decrease their sale to nny maiked extent or that the war would lead to any seal city of the stones weie Ideas si outed by both expertb, who say that the demand Is steady and thnt them is a sufficient supjilj in tills countiy to last for two or thtee years. Neither of them believes thnt the war will lead lo the opening of an extensive diamond cutting Industiv In Amiricn. They say the cost of labor Is too high to peimit competition with the foreign cutters. If the scene of that Industij Is to be changed they believe that London will lit the city to tect'lve it, although they doubt that the war will cause tho per manent tessatlon of the trude In Bel gium, wheie some 15.CM 0 cutters aro om rloved. The use of reconstructed and synthetic stones as substitutes for such ptoclous stonis as rubles and omeialds Is thought ici ne prooaoio by seveinl experts, who say that they have nntivtd u growing tendency In the buying of Jewels by socloty women in this country. , ( ALWAYS PAID EOR Aptopos of the ircent strnln on Colonel noosevlt's health, Dr. Lyninn Abbott said in Now York. "Populaiity must nlwsys be paid for paid with time, with liertltli. with work." Pr.

The mother of the fill, buster died two months before him, but Mrs. Hughes hns remained there at Bel fast. Sho does not know that tho Cuban Government probahly will grant hor a! pension.- Friends recently learned that tho captain left nothing for his widow. SUGGESTS CUBAN AID George F. Sproule, secretary of tha Boattl of Commissioners of Navigation, nn lntlmato friend of Captain Hughes for 20 years, suggested the Idea of a Cuban pension to J. J. Luis, Cuban Consul here, who frequently served as agent for th , Cubans In the flllhustoiing. The "suggestion" was sent two weeks ago to General Emillo Nunez, tho most powerful member of the present Cuban Cablnt nnd 1'iesldont Mcnocal's principal advisor. General Nunez was the man to whom Captain Hughes sold the arms and ammunition In IMC, 1907 and 1003, sometimes directly and sometimes through Mr. Luis. ".Mr. Sproule came to mo with the ad dress of Mrs. Hughes." said Mr. Lula today. "Tho Cuban Government wanted to send her a letter of condolenco Mr. Sproulo said that n pension would bo better, as Captain Hughes had left noth Ing. I was surprised, but was glad to Inform General Nunez of Mr. Sproule'a suggestion. "General Nunez was commander of tho nrmy Captain Hughes supplied with arms nnd ammunition. He Is now Sec retary of Agrlcultiuo and piesldent of tho Veterans' Association. I, of courje could do nothing ofllclnlly, but General Nunez will ptobably ai range It." Mr. Spioule todiv explained that Simon Gratz and Dr. J. CaJetan Flynn. of 122.5 North Sixth street, also vvera parties to tho "suggestion." Dr. Flynn was Captain Hughes' physician for many years. The filibuster whose memory Cubi will honor in a substantial manner was born In Belfast, nnd went to sea when a boy on the Samuel Louther ships fiom Belfast. He camo herein 179 and shipped with tho Mei chants nnd Miners' Line, on the old steamer William Ciane He commanded nt vaiious tlmea the Oceana.

At the oittb'ieak of the Cuban war Captain Hughes enlisted In the Ameri can navy and wns given the rank of lleuttnnnt. He performed valuabio services, as ho was familiar with the West Indies wuteis.
