Westport,' Autr. 9 Hanging unto i the rear of Edward Nash's ice vafon '.; until the vehicle reached the Intersect , tion of Cross and State streets, little ' j six year old John Carusonlo, who lives "with his parents in Cross street, jump , ed from the rear step which is. used fcy the ice-men and attempting: to run -across the street, stepped in- front of . heavy automobile driven by J. E. ; Blrdsey of New York. The driver & immediately applied his brakes, -tout without avail, for the little fellow -was . knocked down by the radiator and hurled under the ponderous machine, th car passing' over his frail body. 3, Hat head was crushed, it beinr ap r- parent that life had been wiped out. Dr. Frank H. McLaury was called and .with all baste removed the little fel 4 low to the Norwalk hospitaL There . an effort was made to sustain life by attempting- a trepanning of the skull. Th operation was performed but ; wtthoat success as the little lad pasa- , d away a few hours afterward. JUDGE G. H.

An yet the ; latter has hot fully mastered the In tricate gears, speeds and drives of his " new car. Thursday Frank driving his -.- horse and Fred his car met upon the . highway. In some way the car and ' hone carae together, with dire results i to .-the equine. The animal sustained -a broken, leg, following which he was . shot by his owner. Now some one - says the poor -horse was more shinned (against than shinning. Because of the numerous narrow i .escapes of little children playing In . i the streets of the town, to -say nothing 'of some - of the accidents that have ' occurred, culminating with the death :of the Carusoni boy on Thursday af iternoon, will It become necessary for . t)M town to provide a suitable place iin which children can play and which I j will keep them off the ' streets ? Is ; (Westport large enough, and-, do street 1 accidents of playing children occur ? ; often enough to" warrant the town maintaining a, public play grounds? : (This is a question which the large cities of the country will have always -to deal with, that of keeping the chil dren off the streets and gathering Ahem In a common playground under supervision. Will Westport soon have to follow suit? . Something has got to be done for daily the children' play In the ' streets. It is nothing short of miraculous that j there are not more accidents or deaths j recorded, as the boys and girls do not leeem to heed the speeding autos, the trolleys or the frisky horses. Those f-wno have cause to use the streets have wondered long that there are not more accidents of the nature of the mishap Thursday. The boys, and even the girls, catch a "hookie" get ting off without looking to the left. or J Tight and often directly in the path of some other vehicle as the unfortu nate Carusonl boy did. If a a question that not only the parents of the chil dren have to heed, but one which the town authorities will soon have to deal with even to imposing a penalty for playing In the streets. (Special to The Farmer.) Stratford, Aug. 9. "It's Just the old story of trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill, endeavoring to mace a story i out of nothing," said Judge Charles H. Peck to a Farmer reporter I last evening in speaking of the accu sation brought against him that he was trying, to get some 'graft' out- of the I late Mrs. Jeannette Hallock, who died 1 at the Bridgeport hospital on June 28, & victim of "kidney trouble." As is generally the case there proves I to be two sides to the- story and' from the way the Judge spoke to the repor ter .last .-night, he is innocent of any wrong doing or attempt at wrong do ing In the case, , In fact not only is he to all appearances guiltless, of the charges brought against him by. his enemies, but he was perfectly right In proceeding in the case as fee did and is backed up by the law of the state.. The Judge is accused of endorsing ;a bill for expenses of a trial that was never held In the town. Although the i story w'hlch was circulated around the town was to the effect that the Judge had tried to collect money for the trial which was never held, he stoutly de nies this and i the , records show that . 0 Why is the soda cracker today such a universal food?
