On the steps of St. Agnes' .Hospital
stood a tear-stained boy this morning
when tho doorman nnswercd tho boll.
When tho door swung open tho boy, who
was neatly dressed, wiped his eyes and
"Can you tell me how my cousin Joe
Is getting along7"
After tho frightened lad had been in
vited into tho reception room ho iden
tified himself as William Shields, 15 years
old. of 2211 Hicks street.
"Will Joo die, do you think?" asked
Whllo several nurses and attendants
wore trying to comfort the boy, tho real
story as to what led up to his visit to
tho hospital was revealed. William told
his story Just like any other boy of his
ago would tell it.
"My cousin, Joo Shields, who lives at
my house, and I wero playing last night
In the cellar, when we found a revolver
underneath a box. We began to play
v. lth the revolver. Joo picked up a can
and placed it on a chair and told mo
to shoot at It. I didn't know there was
a bullet in the gun. Joe was standing
In the centre of the cellar and he told
mo to fire. I pulled the trigger nnd thonj
Joe fell down. Tlie Duuot nit joe in
stead of hitting tho cnn. Honest, I
v anted to hit the can. You can ask Jo
and he v.111 tell you that I am telling
the truth."
Suddenly William got up from his chair
and said:
'Way, can't I see Joseph for a little
while, and If you don't believe what I
am telling vou. why you can ask him."
One of the nurses led William upstairs
Into ono of the wards. For n while Wil
liam stood In the ward looking nt the
faces of several youngsters. As he turned
Ills head he raised his hand and shouted:
"There Is Joe."
William rushed over to a cot which
was occupied by Joseph Shields, 13 years
old, of 2211 South Hicks street, suffering
from a bullet wound In the back. Joseph
was conscious.
"Did I mean - shoot you?" asked
William. Jf
"No, you didn't," oliiwcied Joseph.
The wounded boy was brought to tho
hoipltnl Into last night by his pnrcnts.
After the shooting William kept the
affair to himself for more than an hour.
He tried his best to treat his cousin. He
left the wounded boy in tho cellar and
make severnl visits thero. Then he be
came scared and confessed what had
I'hyslclnns nt St Agnes Hospital said
tills morning that Joe has a chance to
recover Tho police of tho Fifteenth street
and Snyder avenue station first heard of
the shooting this morning. They are
conducting an Investigation.

Claimant of Sum left From Sola
Must Explnln Secrecy.
Another chapter In tile eventful his
tory of the steam yacht Idler will b
written Thursday, when all persons hav
ing claims against tho vessel are Invited
to present them to Francis M. Cumbes,
an attorney with offices In tho Tenn
Square Building. Mr. Gumbos lias been
appointed commissioner by the Admiral
ty Court to Investigate all claims.
Six years ago the case of the Idler
stirred this port as did the trials and
tribulations of Admiral Benjamin Watt
and tho Hnytlen navy The vessel was
brought here from the St. Ixuvrcnro
Itlver by Captain J: a. Davis to meet
prospective buyers. Tho buyers failed
to nppear and the owners wero lost In a
hnze The crew became Impatient for
their wages and when thcie were not
forthcoming, they presented their ense
to tho united Wlntes uisinei Aiiurntiy.
He curried It before the Admltnlty Court
and tho Idler was ordered sold by the
United States Marshall. Trior to the
sale futile nttempt was made to discover
the craft's owners.
Henry It, Hnrdlng, of this city, was
the put chaser. Aftei the claims of tho
crew nnd the expends of the sole had
been deducted n considerable sum was
left. This was turned back to tho United
Stntc Court, where It has remained.
Now a claimant for the sum appears In
the person of Owen O. Staples, of Wash
ington, D. C. He claims he was tho
original owner of the yacht, and Is en
titled to the money. He will tell on
Thursday wliv he did not acknowledge
this fact six years ago.
The Idler has changed hands several
times since and her whereabouts are not
known here.

Chinaman Knocked Unconscious De
spite Alleged Use of Blackjack.
Fully a score of disgruntled customers
gathered In front of the laundry of Zing
Wang, at Belgrade andClearfielA streets
this morning, nnd loudly demnnded their
shirts and collars. But Wang had
troubles of his own and was meditating
upon them in a cell of tho Belgrndo and
Clearfield streets police station. Just
across the street from his laundry.
Tho Chinaman, according to the police,
attacked Dennis McGovern, of 2S40 Miller
street, with a blackjack and in the fight
that followed McGovern, It is declared,
knocked Wang unconscious.
Tor somo unknown reason McGovorn
was sent to the central police station for
a hearing Instead of being tried before
Maglstiate Campbell at the station house.
The Magistrate Is a personal friend of
McGovcrn's, and it Is possible that Lieu
tenant Hamilton sent the prisoner to
City Hnll for reasons of his own. The
lieutenant would not discu.ss the subject.
McGovein was sent to Moynmenslng
Prison by Magistrate Itenshaw in de
fault of ball. Ho was In Jail two days
before his liberation. This morning Mc
Govern was released and sworo out a
warrant for the arrest of Wang on tho
charge of assault and battery. Wang
had a hearing befoie Magistrate Camp
bell. He wns held In $300 ball for court.

Philadelphia ls to have a real New
Year's Parade this year. That ls the de
termination of the South Philadelphia
Business Men's Association, whose mem
bers feel that the city should take every
possible advantage of this phase of ad
vertisement, particularly . since the
European war has tended to depress
business conditions here. It is believed
a New Year's celebration which would
attract nation-wide attention nnd Interest
would materially advance the prosperity
of Philadelphia business, nnd any seeming
extravagance In tho purchasing of cos
tumes for the event would be an Invest
ment amply repaid by the results.
Tlie numerous clubs and organizations
which compose the smaller units of the
New Year parade havo already begun to
mobollze their forces, and the spirit of
rivalry which is always keen between
thorn is quite manifest even nt this
early day. Each leader Is planning and
scheming for features which will draw
distinction upon his particular organiza
tion n tho form of przes.
Those features are guarded Jealously,
for each fears a rival may take ad
vantage of the Idea and produce some
thing oven more bizarre.
An effort to advertise tho celebration
all over the United States nnd to provldo
proper transportation facilities for those
who will visit tho city at that time Is
being made by a committee under the
leadership of Robert Aiken, and through
their efforts and those of the local or
ganizations. It Is believed that Philadel
phia will witness a celebration on De
cember 31 that will surpass anything of
the kind that has been produced In thi

Structure Will Be Erected nt Thir
teenth and Snyder Avenue. ,
A new public school to supply tlie nerds
of one of downtown's most lapltllv grow
ing sections Is noon to rhe on the site
occupied by enr barns at 13th street and
Snyder avenue. This was decided nfter
an Investigation by Francis S Cnntrell,
Jr., James M. Ilaztett and J. Parker
Norrls, Jr., constituting a board of road
viewers. These filed a report yesterday
awarding J150.000 for the site.
It ls expected that the I'rankford nnd

pany, to whom y0.0 of tho award will
go, and the Thirteenth and Fifteenth
Streets Passenger Railroad Compnn.r,
which Is to receive the remaining $100,000,
will nccept the price set for the ground
The car barns were built many years
ago when Snyder avenue marked the
farthest southern port of Philadelphia's
building line. Since then thousands of
houses have been erected below this
street and the population has increased
to such an extent that additional school
facilities are badly needed

George Duckit, of Youngstown, Ohio,
who started out to find one early this

Kenny saw a red light moving down

a zigzag course and was convinced It
could not be a police patrol. He hid In
the shadow of a building until the light
reached him. Duckit was tho bearer,
and ns he eould give only n hiuy expla
nation as to how he got It, the police
man took him nnd the light to the
Germantowir police station.
When the prisoner hid a hearing
before Magistrate Pennock. It developed
that many other lights In Germantown
were missing. Incidentally there came
walls of complaint from a doen other
prisoners, several declaring that If Duckit
had let the red lights alone last night
they would have been able to reach home
Duckit disclaimed responsibility for the

It Pays to Get Rid
of "Acid-Mouth"
"Acid-Mouth" raises havoc
with teeth. "Acid-Mouth"
breaks down tooth enamel
and causes cavities to appear.
Tooth Paste
stops the cause of 90 of
tooth decay by neutralising
unnatural mouth acids.
Remember, mere mechanical
cleanliness doesn't stop enamel
decay. But Pebeco does, be
cause it stops "Acid-Mouth."
