Strange Dog.
Imagination May Have Much to

The Boy's Mother Believes He Was
Made Crazy by His
By the Associated Press. '
New York, Oct. 30. James Norman,
16 years old, was removed from home a
raving maniac last night. It appears
that the lad had for some months been
employed as a stevedore. A strange
dog wandered into a yard where he was
at work some weeks ago, and Norman
started romping with him, when the
animal suddenly became infuriated and
snapped at his right hand. The wound
waB not a bad one, the tip of the third
finger only being slightly lacerated.
Norman did not take much notice of
it until a couple of days ago, when it
became painful. Last night the lad re
turned home from work and ate a
hearty supper. Soon he complained of
feeling hot and started to walk in the
front room. Suddenly he fell, shaking
like a leaf, to the .floor. His brother
George and Joseph R. Russell rushed
to his assistance, but could not get
near him.
He snapped and barked exactly like
a dog whenever they approached him.
A policeman sent for an ambulance,
but before its arrival the boy became
violent and it was all the policeman
and the two other men could do to keep
him from injuring himself. As it was,
his brother received several scratches
on the hands from the madman. An
ambulance Burgeon from Bellevue ar
rived and injected hypoJemiicaliy a
quantity of morphine, but while Nor
man was being placed in the ambulance
and before the drug could have any et
fect upon hia system, he was again at
tacked with the rabies and fell from
the gra9p of the men to the sidewalk.
He was finally placed in the ambulance
and removed to the insane pavilion.
The boy's mother insists that her son's
companions have done a great deal
toward making him crazy by telling
him hydrophobia stories.

Is Chicago Credit Shaky?
Chicago, Oct. 30. The credit of the
city of Chicago was attacked today by
a syndicate of local banks, which re
cently advanced 600,000 as a temporary
demand loan in anticipation of tax
collections. Several of the banks
asked immediate repayment of the loan.
Comptroller Ackerman complied, and
now there is no money on. hand to meet
the October payroll Not only does
the comptroller declare that the city
has no money to meet its obligations,
but he openly asserts that there is none
in sight. The bapks regard the city
with suspicion. Since the Kent reso
lution was passed by the finance com
mittee, casting a cloud upon the
authority of the comptroller to borrow
money, the banks have made constant
demands on the city for repayment.
Up to date $300,000 has been returned.
Two hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars, not enough to meet the payroll is
still on hand, but a great part of that
will probably be paid back before the
end of the week.

neva, Wis., he detected Crane coming
out of the room of Mrs. Stiles. He went

Crane to continue. Later, he averred,
his wife received love letters from Mr.
Crane, and when he remonstrated she
became hysterical and told him to go
away for two weeks and give her time
to collect her thoughts. He went as
she requested and upon his return
found another man in his house, whom
he thought had no business there, and
then he and his wife separated. The
case is expected to last for ten days.
