Animal Flees After Flooring
Two Bluecoats and a Bag

A big gray doe Is In a stall at the
Germantown police station today and
Sergeant Hirst, Mounted Policeman
Itlchardson and a half-dozen commuters
nro nursing sore spots made by the hoofs
of the nnlmal. The deer Is believed to
have escaped from tho preserve In Fair
mount Park along the Wlssahlckon. It
was captured after a battle lasting an
hour nt the Wayne Junction station of
the Reading Railway early this morning.
Sergeant Hirst and Policeman Itlch
ardson were attracted to the station be
fore 7 o'clock by the sound of shots.
They failed to find who was doing the
shooting, but on the station platform
they saw the deer, evidently very much
Confidence was to be seen In every
movement of the two bluecoats as they
approuched the slender animal with the
big, mild eyes, The deer backed into a
corner and waited. Sergeant Hirst tight
ened up his belt and rushed.
Like a flash the deer pivoted, and both
slender hind legs shot out. The sharp
hoofs caught the sergeant squarely In
the solar plexus. He sat down for some
minutes where he landed, a safe dis
tance from the deer. Policeman Rich
ardson wisely stood on guard, also at
a safo distance.
Samuel I.adley, the baggagemaster,
heard tho commotion and came running
up the platform. "This won't do," he
said. "We'll have to get this thing out

men made a concerted rush at the deer.
When they got within range things be
gan to happen. About two seconds later
things stopped happening and the deer,
at bay In the corner, snorted. Slowly the
game hunters picked themselves up and
Warily backed off.
The deer tired of the game at this point
qnd made a break for freedom. Jumping
off the platform, It scampered up the
right of way with the bluecoats and
about 00 commuters In full pursuit The
animal was gaining rapidly, but It turned
to look back and fell Into a deep excava
tion. Ropes were looped about Its feet
from the top of the hole, and It waa
leaded Into the patrol wagon like a side
of beef and taken to the station, t will
be returned to the park.
Th capture of the deer brought to an
end a wild career In which several speed

WINTER TO BE MILD,
SEVERE, SHORT, LONG,
THE PROPHETS SAY
Predictions of the Goosebone
Seers Are Guaranteed to
Suit Every-Possible Taste
The weatlier prophets unoftlclal-have now an
nounced their firm convictions
About he- comlns winter, bo that those who
read may know;
It will be short and long and mild and quits
Bovore; and oil predictions
Aeree tha; tons ot snow will fall and there'll
be little snow. i
Goosebone prophets throughout tho
State aro busily nt work these days pre
dicting tho weather conditions to pre
vail this winter. The predictions satisfy
ovqry otic, Inasmuch as they cover every
possible contingency. There Is a prophet
for every type, those who like mild win
ters and the fresh-air fiend who Hkes
to walk In the snow barefoot
So far most of tho predictions havo been
based on other than the goosebone. The
prophets who follow this method read
the markings on tho breastbone of a
goose hatched in the spring and killed
for Thanksgiving Day. A few have ven
tured to predict on the markings of geese
killed within tho last few days, but most
aro holding oft until the day of Thanks
giving. Others are turning to the nnlmals. the
trees and oven the earthworms and
beetles for their "signs." Forty of Berks
County's prophets met at Monocacy and
gave out their predictions based on these
sources. Some held the winter will be
short and mild, because they turned up
bugs and worms while plowing within
the last few days. Others failed to see
the worms nnd say the winter will be
long and severe.'
Another, class of prophets contends that
the winter will be short but cold, be
cause there Is a thick coating of moss
on the north side of tho trees. One man
was unable to predict because the num
ber ot snow falls Is his specialty and
he cannot operate until after the first,
HU method Is to put a tin containing
a pint of the first snow on a stove nnd
count the bubbles that come to the sur
face while It Is melting. The number of
bubbles Indicates the number of snow
falls for the winter.

DWELLERS OF DARBY
SECTION EAGER FOR
HIGH SPEED TRANSIT
Mass-Meeting of Woodland
Avenue Business Men To
night Will Voice Favora
That the enthusiasm for hlsh-speed
transit linn spread to the extreme points
of the city Is shown by the interest In
tho mass-mcctlng which Is to be held
tonight under tho auspices of tho
Woodland Avenuo Business Men's Asso
ciation at Odd Fellows' Hall, 71st street
and Woodland avenue. The same spirit
which pervaded tho meetings in Frnnk
ford and Germantown will be In evidence
nt tho Woodland avenue meeting if ad
vanced preparation Is any criterion.
The people ot the Darby section, as this
neighborhood Is known, havo been en
deavoring for years to obtain bqttor
transportation facilities, and It was not
until Director Taylor threw himself Into
the breach that anything tnngiblo was
done. Residents of this section are now
confident thnt the elevated road along
Woodland avenue will be a rcnllty.
They realize that the proposed line will
bring prosperity nnd progress along with
It, In addition to Saving time and abolish
ing the S-cent exchange tickets.
Under present conditions It takes 23
minutes to ride from 65th and Woodland
avenue to City Hall, but tho high-speed
elevated line will "reduce this time to 16
minutes, thus saving each passenger 24
minutes dally on the round trip:
At tho present tlmo thcro aro vast areas
of undeveloped land tributary to Wood
land avenue, and these vacant lots and
ash piles are muto evidence of the need
ot something to make the community
It is known that 'numerous manufac
turing concerns of national reputation re
fused to operate plants In this section on
account ot the Inadequate transit facili
ties. Tho Woodland avenuo elevated line will
effect a saving In time for 07,000 persons.
Including those who llvo tributary to the
surfaco lines nctlng as feeders.
It Is contended by tho people jf this
section that thousands of people living
in Chester, Wilmington and other nearby
polnta would be attracted more frequently
to this city by tho convenience offered by
such a high-speed system.
MODEL AT CITY EXHIBIT
Proposed Lines Shown In Pavilion
Indicate Splendid Development.
High-speed transit lines, proposed and
existing, were marked today on the big
model of tho city of Philadelphia In tho
"Know-Vour-Clty-Better" exhibit in the
pavilion In tho City Hall courtyard.
Under supervision of Director Taylor, of
the Transit Department, cords and rib
bons of varied colors were placed along
the small thoroughfares of tho model of
tho city. The cords represented elevated
lines, with ribbons Indicating subways.
Tho colors ot the ribbons and cords In
dicate existing lines nnd the order of
construction proposed for the lines to bo
built under the transit development plan
or uirector Taylor, index charts on the
model explain to visitors the significance
ot the various colors ot the network of
