SMALL BOY'S STOICISM
COOLLY AWAITS A CAR WHICH
CRUSHES HIS LIMr.
His Foot Imprisoned Beyond Extrica
tion, but He Saves Himself
After saving his younger brother from a
horrible death beneath the wheels of one
of the heavy cars of the Maryland line of
the Washington Traction and Electric Com
pany yesterday afternoon, Charles Severe,
the seven-year-old son of William B. Severe
of Riverdale, Md., had a narrow escape
from instant death himself, and his escape
is probably due to his remarkable display
of courage rather than to anything else.
The unfortunate accident occurred at
Riverdale about 3:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, while Charlie and his two
brothers, one older and one younger than
himself, were waiting at the crossing for
their parents, who were expected to return
from their vacation during the afternoon.
The three children while waiting at the
crossing for the purpose indicated amused
themselves at play. In some manner the
youngest boy got his foot caught between
the tracks and the plank walk, but was
released by Charlie. The eldest boy then
took the youngest cne home, leaving Charlie
to wait at the crossing. A little while later,
while experimenting to determine how his
brother got his foot in jeopardy, Charlie
caught his foot in almost the same place
and was unable to release it. He tugged
and pulled, but all to no effect.
It suddenly dawned upon him that he
was standing on the tracks and that a car
was approaching, but there was no one at
hand to aid him in effecting a release. The
gong of the oncoming car sounded several
times, but the boy was unable to leave the
tracks, and in a few minutes the car was
upon him, but not before he succeeded in
getting his body, with the exception of his
imprisoned foot and ankle, out of the way.
It is said the motorman saw the boy
standing there, but thought he had only
gone on the tracks for the purpose of an
noying the trainmen, the practice being
common among the boys along the line.
When the motorman realized that the
boy was unable to leave the tracks it was
too late to stop the pc nderous car, and, with
a sick( ntng grind, it passed over the young
ster's leg, cutting through the bone at a
point below the knee. People who saw the
injured lad almost immediately after the
unfortunate affair said he displayed a re
markable amount of courage. He was
placed on an incoming car and brought to
the corner of 15th and G streets northwest.
In the meantime the Emergency Hospital
had been notified, and the ambulance, in
charge of Dr. Stuart of that institution,
was in waiting when the car arrived at the
end of the route. The injured boy was
transferred from the car to the ambulance
and a hurry run was made to the hospital.
An examination at the hospital developed
that the flesh was horribly mangled and
that the bone was badly crushed. An op
era,.on was decided on, and the leg was
amputated at the knee.
At the hospital this morning it was said
that the lad's condition was about as good
as could be expected, considering the char
acter of the injury.

Charge Not Sustained.
Judge Bundy of the Police Court today
dismissed a charge of disorderly conduct
against Emma Oliver, colored, after a.hear
ing in which Policeman Waldron, who ar
rested Emma, told the court that she was
one of a crowd standing in the middle of
the sidewalk near the corner of 7th and P
streets northwest Saturday night. When
he told them to disperse they all obeyed
with the exception of Emma.
Emma had engaged Attorney Frisbie to
defend her, and in answer to a question
from the attorney said that she was only
there two minutes by the watch.
"Did you have a watch?" she was asked.
"No. I didn't, but I told the time by
watching a clock near by.
"I was walking down 7th street earlier in
the evening and this officer called to me,
but I paid no attention to him, and when I
was arrested he dragged me like a brute,"
the woman declared.
Judge Bundy at this point decided that
the charge had not been sustained, and dis
missed the case.

angineer in ar of Burning ea
The gas house at the corner of South
Capitol and I streets southeast, which sup
plies the Pennsylvania railroad with illu
minant, caught fire this morning about 1
o'clock. A joint in one of the pipes at
tached to a part of the machinery con
nected with the tank blew out, and the gas
at once ignited.
Allen Farro, the engineer in charge of
the tank, saw at once that the building
about the tank was in danger. He made a
vain endeavor to reach a stopcock to .turn
off the gas. In fighting his way through
the flames the man was badly burned.* In
the meantime an alarm of fire was turned
in from box 58, and the apparatus sta
tioned in the eastern section of the city
responded. The blaze was soon extin
guished, and the flow of gas checked.
Engineer Farro, who lives at 510 K street
southeast, was removed to Providence Hos
pital, where his burns were dressed. Later
he was taken to his home. The exact dam
age to the building and gas machinery has
not been determined, but is thought to be
in the neighborhood of $1,000. The gas
house is said to be owned and controlled by
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
Hurt While Boarding Car.
Charles Baker, residing on Pierce street
between 14th and 15th streets northwest,

from the corner of 14th street and Pennsyl
vania avenue northwest about 8:30 o'clock
last night, suffering from a cut on the
head. The police report that he was injured
while boarding car 45 of the Capital Trac
Remade for $1.50.
