| SOUTH AMBOY i 5 _J LITTLE GIRL BITTEN BY AH UGLY DOC. Emma Selb, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Selb, who keep a bakery on Broadway, carried a bone and some meat down the lane back of their honse to a yard where a small dog, belonging to Mr. Michael Welsh, was, and after the dog had eaten it she, being ery fond of dogs, began to pot it. Mr. Welsh's little girl was there and said to Emma : "He won't bite yon, " so she put her hand over the fence to pat the dog when he sprang np and bit her through the right side of her lower lip. They think he probably intended the bite for the side of her face as the right cheek is soratohed from the lower part of the right eye down to the bite on the lip. Welsh's little girl attracted Mrs. Selb's attention and when the child got to her home her mother bathed. her face and did all she could to relieve her. In the meantime Mr. Selb had responded to the calls of his wife and he wanted to kill the dog. After a while the child complained of the lip paining her and that the pain went all they way np to her eye, so they sent her sister with her to Dr. Albright who canterized the wound and put plasters on and the child became easier and able to be out. The doctor advised them not to have thejlog killed yet, thinking it better so they could be satisfied thatjhe was all right and that the bite was only the result of an ugly disposition on the part of the animal, as he has been in the habit of rushing at people as they pass. It will be remembered that only a few months ago Emma had the diphtheria as well as two of her sisters, one of whom died. The dog is tied up in Welsh's baok jard. FELL ON THE BRIDGE. One of our oitizens 'took a tumble on the heautifully?constructed Qeorge street bridge Monday evening. He caught his toe in one of the boards rising above the others and fell down. The unevenness of the flooring of the bridge was mentioned by us at the time the [bridge was built and we were not 'surprised when Mr. Dash fell. We refrain from mentioning his name (although we owe him one) for a number ofjladies laughed at him at the time and told him he would be in the News, as the correspondent stood there smiling, but we are going to heap ooals of fire on his head and hope that he will appreciate it. A GREAT IMPROVEMENT. Wheeler Brothers finished the rais ing of the house on the Dixon proper ty Thursday, and it is now ready to be romodc'.ied into a bakery for Mr. Lnoitt's occupancy. The building looks remarkably high, as it was formerly a three story and basement, the upper floor being a mansard house and will now be a four story building. Very soon the Dixon property will be a thing of the past. Ever since the death of Mr. Dixon, the former owner, the property has been going down and its appearanoe was anything but an ornament to the block. Now those who visit the place who have formerly beenjjaccustomed ' to seeing the old buildings, will be astonished. MINIATURE FARMS.

William Ware and George Stout weie arrested by Marshal Monaghan Thursday afternoon on complaint of George Freitchneck, of Bordentown avenue. They were aocused of having robbed him of a pocketbook] contain ing $26 and a brass check. It appears that Frietchneck had been purchasing something at one of the stands at the picnic at Swan Hill Grove and thought lie put his pocket book back in his pocket. He had on a pair of overalls over his trousers and had put the pocketbook between the overalls and trousers instead of putting it in his pocket. It dropped down and Ware, it is said, was seen to pick it up and shortly walk away and go down among the bushes in the vicinity of the grove, where he was joined by Stout. When Freitohneck discovered the Iom of his pocketbook he was told by a party that Ware had it. He said he thought that Ware was only playing a joke on him for the sake of a little fun, or he would have told him be fore. Upon looking for the two men they had disappeared. Freitchneck told Marshal Monashan, who later on arrested Ware and Stout and upon searching them $2 and the brass check were found upon Ware and what had become of the rest of the $26 is not known yet. The two were taken to Borough Hall and locked up. The check was returned to Mr. Freitch neck so he could go to his work Fri day, as without it he could not do so. RAIN STOPPED PICNIC The picnio of 'Local 435 Goal Hand lers Union, June 11th, at Swan Hill Grove, was a great success in the evening, but about half past nine it began to rain and the large crowd that had gathered there began to start for their homes. Very few had taken umbrellas and were forced to go home through the downpour for it rained harder and harder. So what would have proved to be a very enjoyable affair was very disappointing to many. It was verv quiet and orderly and they were doing a rushing business when it started in raining. Kerr's orchestra furnished the music for the danciflg and parties were heard to say it was the best music that had been on the Hill at any of the picnics and must have been very good for it is seldom that home talent receives its share of praise.
