0 V E R T A KEN, S I R ANG LEI)
Banker Awakened as Bandit
Dogs Raid His Home
for Food.
O. Axson Jones, assistant treasurer of
the 1,'nited States Mortgage and Trust
Company, who lives at Fort Washington
avenue and 197th street, in a cottage
well set back from the Hudson River
and overlooking on the east a broad hill
side of ravines and rocks and stunted
trees, all part of the estate that John D.
Rockefeller. Jr., offered to the city for a
park not so long ago, was startled from
sleep yesterday at dawn by a crash,
the thudding of heavy feet on the back
porch and a chorus of wolfish howls.
The banker hurried to a window
through which he could sweep the ex
panse of wild land falling precipitously
toward Broadway, the wildest tract to
be found in New York city, and his gaze
marked and held a singular picture. In
a grassy clearing among the boulders
and brush four hundred yards or so be
low his yard eight dogs lay in a circle,
mouths slavering, fierce eyes fixed on
his house. Mr. Jones recalled what he
had read of wolves and their age old
custom of crouching in a ring with the
leader of the pack in the centre.
It was obvious that the pack leader
of the circle of wild dogs, dogs that had
known masters and mistresses and the
?. ays of ordered life once upon a time,
but had reverted on the border of a
great city to savagery, was not present,
but Mr. Jones thought he knew where
the leader was. He took up a Mauser
rifle, trained it over the window sill and
estimated what the drop of the high
powered shot would be at 400 yards.
As he settled to shoot, the leader, a big.
yellow brute came bounding down the j
hill, gripping in his Jaws a leg of lamb !
which Mrs. Jones had set aside for the j
family dinner, a cut which had been set ,
out upon the back porch and covered
with a linen cloth. It' was the rumpus j
made by the yellow leader raiding the
house that had awakened Mr. Jones.
Ilecuirnlzea Own Teddy.
His finger was stiffening to pull trig
ger when two concerns relaxed his pur
pose. One was the uncertainty as to
what would become of a 30.30 steel
jacketed bullet from a gun that can
drive a missile through two feet of oak
in case he overshot the dogs and the ?
bullet went singing down the valley into ;
Broadway. The other was recognition j
that one of the wild pack was, or had
been, his own dog Teddy, a Boston ter- J
tier. ,
Teddy unaccountably disappeared a j
year ago. Weks were spent searching
for him, and a privat* detective. Jimmy!
(?ail. had been called In, all to no avail
But here he was. a gaunt, wild thing,
consorting with bandit dogs as wild as
wolves. Mr. Jones knew he Could not
be mistaken. . j
He put aside the rifle and whistled !
shrilly through his fingers, a signal the
terler had known. Teddy remembered,
for the whistling brought him to his
fret as the yellow leader bounded into
the circle. The other dogs sprang up.
The whole pack paused, gazing uphill,
whence came the disturbing call. Mr.
Jones called loudly: "Teddy! Come.
Teddy!" and repeated the call. The ter- i
rier swayed uncertainly, half impelled
to run, but drawn irresistibly by the
remembered tones. His comrades were
already in motion among the rocks,
making toward one of the many caves
end recesses which concealed an as
tonishing variety of wild things still
existent within a ity, but Tcddv turned
up hill fearfully, as If something beyond
his own dog consciousness was leading
him.
Vrliml by the Throat.
The big yellow leader turned with a
snarl and sprang bark toward his stray
ing follower. For a minute or two he
ran along at Teddy's side. Mr. Jones
saya It was plain as day what was going
on. The big yellow pack leader was
ordering the terrier back to the pWk.
commanding, threatening, and the ter
rier was ignoring him. Then like a
flash the leader leaped, and as Mr
Jones, sensing what was Jo happen,
again grabbed his rifle, it hail the ter
rier by the throat. There was no time
to shoot. The big dog's jaws closed
vicelike and the terrier was dead before
he had ben shaken half a doxen times.
He dropped his prey and was gone like
a shot among the rocks and trees.
"If I hadn't seen this myself," said
the banker yesterday, "it would have
been hard to credit." but I assure you
I am not nature faking I'm perfectly
certain that Teddy had been decoyed
away from home by this pack of wild
dogs and kept with them a year, was
Irving to rOme back to my house when
he recognised my voire and that the
wild dog understood that Teddy was de
serting and killed him.
"This pack has existed for several
>ears on the tract of unimproved land
which drop.-' eastward from Fort Wash
ington avenue from 181st street to 20th
street, a mile long and from a quarter
to ffhalf a mile In width. I have shot at
these wolflike r-eatures many times and
have kilted a 'ew, but they arc extra
ordinarily cunning and ii is rare that
anvbndy can draw a bead upon one.
"Th ere is no doubt that the wfld dogs
seek recruits for their pack. Kver so
often pes dogs disappear from houses In
this neighborhood or from motor cars
passing through, and In many cases I
am aure the miaslng dogs have gone to

ARE YOU CRAZY? NOT IF
YOU ANSWER THIS QUIZ
Bedford "Reformatory Head Has His Own Question
naire to Establish Mentality of Women?Replies
Also Indicate Correct Age of Its Inmates.
Dr. Amos T. Baker, superintendent o;'
:iie State Reformatory for Women a
Bedford, X. Y., has joined the rank*; of
those who have followed Thomas A Kdt
son In making public the questionnaires
which they have prepared for the con
founding of prospective employees, ex
cept that Dr. Raker's questions art
asked to prospective inmates of his new
psychopathic ward at the reformatory,
i Dr. Raker holds that any woman or girl.
| who is able to answer a majority of the
j questions is mentally responsible for her
tactions, and she is not placed under ob
servation 10 see if she is insane.
Dr. Baker believes that hy his ques
tionnaires lie can tell the approximate
mental age of the Redford Inmates, and
Ilia questions are designed to tell him
whether the inmates are 1 or 16, or In
| between. To be credited with a six
teen-year-old mentality, for Instance, a
| girl must answer this question : "What
is the thing to do: If it is raining when
when you dtart to school? If you find
I :hat your house is on flre? If you are
going some place and miss your car?"
In sea-en-year-old tests an inmate is
asked:
"What is the difference between a fly
and a butterfly? Between a stone and
an egg? Between wood and glass?"
"Name In proper order the days of the
weelt."
If the inmate cannot answer these
questions she is not yet 8 years old
mentally :
"What is the tiling to do: When you
have broken something that belongs to
some one else? If a playmate hits you
without meaning to do it?
LARGEST TURNOUT
OF SEASON AT CONEY
Few Who Brave Cold Water
for Early Dips Wear De
corous Costumes.
Mor? than a quarter million people
went to Coney Island yesterday, accord
ing to estimates of various persons who
had nothing more important to do than
try to count them. Only a few of these
went bathing, however, and those that
did wore decorous costumes that caused
only yawns from the censoring police
men who promenaded the beach.
The exception to the decorous cos
tumes were those worn by five girls
from a Broadway musical comedy, who
weht to Brighton Beach with a blare of
trumpets and a press agent and had
moving pictures taken of themselves.
The bathing suits they wore on the beach
excited no one, being extreme only in
their color designs, but later they re
turned to the bath house and put on
some other suits, which the press agent
said were the things worn in the show.
These might have caused comment if
the crowd had seen them, but the crowd
didn't, because the girls failed to leave
the bath house attired in the show
clothes. Instead, the photographers took
pictures in the aisles of the bath house
and Coney Island remained unshocked.
Yesterday was the biggest day that
the island has had this year, and every
thing was wide open to gather in the
money, Buna and Steeplechase both
flung wide the gates and the Palace of
Jov, which is the old Sea Beach Palace,
was ready for Inspection. It will en
tertain paying patrons next week, with
its "tremendous and gigantic swimming
pool" and other attractions.
Inspector Sackett had ninety-two ex
tra cops to help his regular force, but
it was a quiet day In police circles at
Coney and the force on duty had few
worries outside of picking up a few
lost chlldreu and taking them to the
station, where they were claimed by
angry parents
The only two arrests of any impor
tance were those of John Audutie of
1403 Neptune avenue. Coney Island, and
Max Novica of 173 Rlvington street.
John carried a pot of something which
he said was paint and which the cops
thought might be liquor. They held him
for the Grand Jury and will have the
paint or whiskey analysed.
Max is only 15 years old. and is ac
cused of snatching the handbag of Mrs.
Minnie Youngkuc of 526 Seventy-seventh
street, Brooklyn. He was taken to the
Children's Society and will be arraigned
in the Children's Court charged with
Juvenile delinquency.
The only rescue of the day was that
of John McGlnnia, aged IS, of 263 Gold
street. Brooklyn. John went fishing on
the Jetty off Ocean Parkway and got so
excited that ha fell Into the ocean. A
bather pulled McGlnnia out, and I>r.
Federmnn sent him to the Coney Island
Hospital. He will recover.

the body of a girl cut into eighteen

and asks for Lho moral lesson it teaches.
She also is required to arrange thla sen

and between "snake, cow and sparrow."
LAUGHING JACKASS
SULLEN AT BAPTISM
Central Par kBird Tries to Bite
Keepr and Frowns at
Mineral Water.
The Australian jackass which was,
presented to the city three weeks ego!
by Martin Johnson, explorer, treated his]
christening at the Central Park Zoo yes
terday as a very solemn affair. A large
crowd gathered to see how he would
take it when he felt the water from the
baptismal fount wet his gray feathers,
but he saw no humor in the proceeding.
Not a laugh djd he emit. Not even a
twinkle could be seen in his eye.
The laughing Jackass at the Central
Park Zoo is a bird, not an animal. Tie
is said to be a favorite in Australia ; so
much so that his picture is printed on
souvenir postcards and sold in the shot)?.
He hasn't risen to the dignity of getting
himself on coins like the American eagle,
but that's probably because of the mis
fortune of his name.
The Central Park laughing Jackass's
name was changed to Jack Coyle Pas
cova?Jack for jackass, Coyle in honor
of Jamt?s P. Coyle, head keeper at the
zoo, and Pascova for Miss Carmen Pas
cova, the opera singer, who was his
sponsor.
Jack resented leaving his cage yester
day afternoon for the ceremony. His
temper was bad because he was com
pelled to wait more than an hour until a
permit from the Police Department could
be obtained for holding the baptism in
the para. When Keeper Coyle reached
in the cage to get Jack, the bird fas
tened his bill to Coyle's finger and held
on savagely. On a second attempt the
keeper Rot the bird off his perch.
On a stretch of lawn near the Zoo
Coyle held Jack while Miss Pascova
poured a cup of mineral water over the
laughing Jackass. Miss Pascova's sister
held aloft an Australian boomerang.
Motion picture machines clicked. Jack
looked exceedingly bored and melan
choly.
Miss Pascova is a native of Australia.
She left there in 191 T? to Join the Chicago
Opera Company as a mezzo-soprano.
After the christening, when everybody
had gone home. Keeper Coyle reported
that Jack whooped It up in high glee.
The humor of the thing, perhaps, may
have just dawned on him.

CROOKS OF CLASS
GOT THIS $15,000
Florida Gang- Lured Joseph
Appelt of Farmingfdale. L.I.,
Into Stock Swindle.
ALL SET LIKE A PLAY
brokerage House Wouldn't
Accept Checks, However,
So the Rest Was Easy.
GANG UNDER INDICTMENT;
Victim, Who Is Hotel Man, |
Says He Will Go Limit to
Land Men in Prison.
Joseph Appelt, proprietor of the Cen
tral Hotel, Farmingdale, L. 1., who
was swindled of $15,000 by a gang of
bunco artists that havo worked the
rich field of Florida winter resorts for
millions, said yesterday that he is will
ing to spend $20,000 to land in jail the
men who swindled him.
"I have Just returned from Florida,"
said Appelt. who gets red with anger
every time ho thinks of his experience.
"There have been nine indictments
found against the men who robbed me.
My lawyers in Jacksonville are hard at
work. I'll not let up on them. They
thought they had an easy mark. Walt.
When they are behind the hars they
won't think so lightly of the sucker
from New York."
Appelt's experience with the gang
whose rascalities and luxurious vices
have Just been brought to light by the
murders of the "Waco Kid" in St. Au
gustine and Ed Mills In Atlanta, as told
in The New York Herald yesterday,
took place last season at Daytona. He
motored to Florida with his wife. Soon
after arriving he was Introduced to
"Charles Pogart. a Texas rancher." big.
breezy fellow, in unpolished hoots, who
talked convincingly about horses and
cattle. He took a fancy to Appelt and
went walking with him. It was on one
of these strolls that they found a pork
etbook which "contained a $100 bill, ten
10 bills and some papers, along with the
cards of "H. C. Chambers," and news
paper clippings about the spectacular
rise of Stutz motor car stock.
'While they were Inspecting the con
tents of the pocketbook along came a
worried, flurried individual who gasped
in relief at the sight of the pocketbook.
He described Us contents accurately,
and when they had turned it over to him
lie wanted to give them $100 apiece.
They refused reward.
A Bankroll by .Magic.
"All right," said the thankful "II. C.
Chambers." ? "But I've simply got to do
something for you. Meet me Monday
morning at 9 o'clock and I'll let you In
on something that will make a lot of
money for you without your investing
a dollar."
This sounded good. Appelt and the
"stock raiser from Texas"' wont to
Turnbull Castle, on the Dixie Highway,
a structure that had been rented and
lavishly equipped by con men for the
undoing of the unwary. Inside they
found a big quotation board, with the
rapidly changing prices of the New
York stock market, and they noticed,
too, the tall stacks of currency upon the
cashier's desk.
''Mr. Chambers" handed $1500 each to
Appelt and "Pogart," and told them to
do exactly what he did. He promptly ;
bought Vanadium Kteel and Appelt and
"Pogart" were Joyful, as, after following
his example, they saw Vanadium stead
ily rising. At "Mr Chambers's" signal
they sold, and each received from the
cashier $1.50'). Then, still following!
their good angel, they tackled Crucible
Steel, and in no time at all they cleaned '
up $3.fl"0 each. Appelt's total profit
was now $4,000, and he felt mighty
good about it and mighty grateful to
"Mr. Chambers."
"Now gentlemen." said this person, "I
have one more good tip. but It's going to
take considerable money to swing it. I
Hero"?and he rushed Appelt at this, the j
psychological "rush" moment of the'
bunco game?"sign this check payable to j
bearer for $40,000." Appelt signed, as !
did "Pogart," and they bought General
Motors. Up went General Motors at
once, soaring.
Chambers Not So I.nrky.
When they sold tho cashier handed
A9ppelt handfuls of bills?$1,000 bills
mostly?and he was about to turn away j
with his wealth when the cashier ap
proached them and Inquired politely If
they had an account with the firm. None
of them had, and the cashier requested
them to return the cash, saying that!
they would have to return the money,
since the firm did not take checks, and !
that they would have to put up real
money to prove that they could have
made their $40,000 checks good If the
stock had gone down. The cashier de- ,
manded $80,000 as a guarantee that they
were men of substance who had not tried
to bilk a respectable brokerage Arm. It
was all very convincing.
"Mr. Pogart" said that he could get!
$40,000 If he had time to go to Texas.
"Mr. Chambers" said he could obtain :
$26,000. That made $611,000, and all I
looked at Appelt. He thought a bit, and
then said he would supply $16,000 to1
make up the $80,000 If he went home for
It. Appelt and "Mr. Pogart" went after
their money, and while they were absent
"Mr. Chambers" remained at Turnhull
Castle, keeping an eye on the market.
He was tempted to try another turn or
two, and by an astonishing visitation of
bad luck lost every dollar of the profits
that were ? nming to the combination.
When Appelt and Pogart returned to :
Turnbull Castle to hear this "Pogart"
went wild with anger. At least Appelt
was deceived. He tried to kill "Mr.
Chambera," and was only restrained by
the frightened Appelt. The row was
smoothed over for the time.land "Pogart"
told his companions that he would him
self make good their losses. He told
them to go to their hotel anil wait while
he returned to Texas for $40,000 more
He never came hack, of course, and "Mr.
Chambers" disappeared also.
It was an old (lame In New York
twenty years ago.

Lovely Fortuny
Fabric for Your
Country House
AU QUATRIEME
Over a year
ago, we or
dered this

Italy, but we

Now we have received 300

time for the opening of
country houses.
For the Italian room or
the room in which English
chintzes are not suitable, this
fabric is particularly good.
It is in an exquisite old Ital
ian design, developed in dull
blue and yellow in the soft
colors of old Italian damask.
The material itself is a soft
firmly woven cotton and
may be used as upholstery
and hangings; 23 inches wide;
