looking into the question of help, and
thinks he will have no trouble in seem-in*
tlio^ labor he will need. He is a thor
oughly experienced and energetic man,
with an- abundance of capital.

It Is thought probable that the threat
ened' suit by Sir. Joseph , Eisenberg (
against Mayor Jones, for $10,009 damages
for alleged false imprisonment, may be
dropped. The matter seems to have been
tho result of a. misapprehension, and the
situation' one that can be cleared rather
by explanation than by court proceedings.

It was dark, and the sound of rapidly

of pedestrians, for it was but the thought
of a moment to determine tha fc the noise
was.. made, by a runaway. North - Fifth

trians,. for .it abounds . with livery stable
and carriage repositories, and : the loud
halloos of the "stable .accessories" are a
part and parcel of life on this particular
thoroughfare;- but : the rattle and clatter
of this occasion was so plainly that of a
drlverless' horse bent on causing trouble, '
and the possibility^ a crash with a pass-'
iiigelectric car was so evident, that quiet
loiterers and -pedestrians became curious
and excited. spectators. .'
- Suddenly, from the darker regions below,
Marshall ; street, . two; balls of fire leaped "
into" view.'" A swish, a snort, a grunt; a .
dark object ■< approached and. flew past
with' two rays of /light shining from the
front and a cloud of vapor emerging- from;
the rear. '.Quickly the race was on. / '
■ Jtseems that a prominent citizen had.

however,' 'another 'party' manned his auto'
andrstarted in pursuit:
//What 'might .have "been the result ..of
this -unique and not to say up-to date
performance, is -hard to tell. The horse,
with amazing speed and . apparently un
swerving/purpose, "covered the space be
tween' Broad and Marshall/- streets and
dashed on toward Clay. People shrunk
close against ; walls and fences, and dodg
ed behind tree boxes. . Frow doorways
and alleys' the curious poked their heads.

As the runaway horse arrived oppo

occurred.' The "stable accessories" came
to/the front and won the day. Was there
a-heroic an-d startling act of a brave : by ; .
stader? Not mucli. Was there a gallant
and awe-inspiring dash a.nd struggle for
supremacy of the human over the. dumb?
Not/oii your' life. . .':■■■■.'
A -resonant and powerful chorus of
"Whoa!" suddenly came from the throats
of/a score of darkeys. The ears . of ; the
horse stood upright, he slackened, then
slowly and finally: stopped, and was led
quietly to a hitching-post.The automobile
