Strapped to Cots— One Bit
Policeman.
NEW TORK, October 6.— (Special.)—
Two young and pretty girls, who had
literally danced 'themselves into hysterics
and then became so -frenzied that it was
Beceßsary to put them in straight jackets,
created excitement in the upper East Side
streets by their wild screams as they
were hurried in the ambulance , to Belle
vue Hospital early to-day. One of the
girls, in the effort to free herself, got a
policeman's linger in her mouth and bit
through the flesn to the^bxme.
The girls were Margaret O'Brien, IS;
and Mary Churchill, 19. They attended
a ball given by the Young Men's Asso
ciation in the imperial Lyceum on Third
ivenue: The girls, both exceptionally
.pivettyr-und^gracefuH-dancers, were in
great demand.
Miss O'Brien was the first to collapse.
She was in the middle of the floor waltz
ing when she screamed and fell in a
faint. A minute later Miss Churchill
suddenly threw up her arms and fell
prostrate alongside Miss O'Brien.
A policeman got an ambulance but the
girls hysterically fought /him, screaming
tvildly. "in the fight he was bitten. Both
victims were strapped to cots and nar
cotics administered.
After a few hours', sleep Miss O'Brien
and Miss Churchill woke up and said
they wanted to go home. After the doctor
had pronounced them recovered they were
allowed to go.
Excitement in the dance hall continued
after the girls were removed. Several
other young women, who had danced
too much, and who suffered from the
shock of seeing two girls carried from tne
ball-room, refused to be comforted by
their escorts.
KISSES COMES HIGH.
Xeivark Man Had Y«T~Pay $2O for
Tlietn.
NEWARK; N. J.. October 6.— (Special.)
On account of high prices of coal and in
clemency of weather, Matthew Lepowitz
kissed and hugged his sweetheart, Rosie
Smith, in Branch Brook Park yesterday
to make her feel warm.
It would have been cheaper had he
bought coal.
He paid 520 fine for himself and $20
fine for the girl in the police court to-day.
Lepowitz and the girl were walking in
the park in the "twilight, holding hands.
Apparently the park was deserted. They
sat down on a bench. It certainly was
too fervid a performance for Park Police
man Gilhooly. lie had been hiding behind
the trees.
"Break away," yelled Gilhooly, running,
for the loving couple. _
They broke" away and Gilhooly arrested
them.
After, a night In cells they appeared be
fore Police Judge Schalk this morning.
Judge Schalk is 70 years old and ir
Cleopatra reincarnated appeared to him
with pouting lips he would throw rocks
at her.
"The kiss," testified Folireman Gil
hooly, "lasted for about three minutes.
When they broke away it sounded like
the opening of a storm door."
"Scandalous!" cried the aged judge.
"The dignity of the city must be main
tained. There is too much kissing in
public places."
Then he piled on 520. fines.
Miss Smith wept violently and Lepo
witz turned pale:
He did not have the money. The Judge
-would not let him- go. after it.
Finally he got word to •. friends. The
flue^ was paid and they left the jail arm
in arm, poorer, but wiser.

REGRETS HIS°ENLiSTMENt;
Robert T. Mlgrsrins' Impetuosity. Has
Cat liort His Honeymoon.
LANCASTER, Oct. 6.— A lovers' quarrel
has separated Robert T. jiigfjins and. his
bride two days after the -wedding-.
She who Ik now Mrs. Hlgrgins was until
laßt Thursday Miss Bessie V. Rittenhouse,
a direct descendant of fhe Philadelphia
family of that name.
Nobody knows what it was about, but
it was a real lovers' quarrel, and both
the young people were in deadly earnest
about it. .:: ■
Higgins, in the desperation of lost hope,
presented himself at the local recruiting
station and signed to serve Uncle Sam for
a given number of years in the navy.
In the midst of ..his preparation to leave
town it occurred to the young man that
perhaps his affairs of the heart were
not in as bad condition as he had imagin
ed. He called upon Miss Rittenhouse to
secure her views. .
In ten minutes they had agreed that
there had been nothing about which sen
sible persons would have quarreled.
Then they did a bold and unexpected
thing. They went to the parsonage of the
Rev. D. G. Glass, in Vine street, and
were married. This was on last Thurs
day.
Soon after the ceremony it dawned upon
Higgins that he was not a free man. The
United States government had a claim
upon him prior to that of the young lady
at his side. He had forgotten, in his new
found happiness/ his little engagement
with the recruiting officer.
When he told his young wife that their
honeymoon was to be very brief— and told
her why— there was a melting scene. But
Mrs. Higgins is a sensible young woman,
and she soon accepted the situation philo
sophically.
Yesterday Higgins departed for Norfolk,
Va., to board a vessel that is destined for
a long cruiseJ
MAD-DOG SCARE.

DANVILLE VA.. Oct. 6.— (Special.)—
There is a mad-dog scare on in the neigh
borhood of Whitnell. Pittsylvanla county,
and at last reports the excitement over
the scare was intense. A pet dog in the
family of. Mrs. John Caldwell developed
the rabies, and it soon sperad to other
dogs. From the dogs it was conveyed, to
several valuable hogs belonging to Mr.
Caldwell. These attacked Mr., Caldwell,
and it was by a miracle that he escaped,
and then not until he knocked one In the
head with an axe. _ The dogs in that com
munity have been" chained to await de
velopments. Mr. Caldwell is confident he
will lose all of his hogs. The dog that
caused all the' trouble is still at large.

here last week. The back /door of

upon the intelligent negro thinkers in the
South whether it is not better for their

after the visionary northern ideal? When

AT ODDS OVER
SOUTHERN RATES.
Fisl»t is on Between B. & O. and Big:
Four— Old. Controversy Over
Differential Up Again.
(Baltimore American.)
The old controversy over the differential
rate on southern business has come up
again, 'and the Big Four and the Balti
more and Ohio and the Pennsylvania are
almost in a rough-and-tumble scrarhble
over it. The latest development is that
the Big Four has announced, through the
rate meeting at Cincinnati,, that it will
make the same rate per mile through Cin
cinnati that the Baltimore and Ohio uses
through- Washington. Thi3 makes a
wholesale reduction of rates to .Jackson
ville . and upsets all previous arrange-,
ments. ■ v ;- :; ■''.'.'■ .
The controversy started a year ago. 'The
Big Four had been enjoying practically a
m9nopbly on southern business, and hoped
to continue it. This was shared in a
mild way by the Pennsylvania .doing
business through Cincinnati, but the lat
ter is not overly strong between this ter
ritory and Cincinnati,- leaving the field
largely to the Big Four. The Pennsyl
vania having a line through Cincinnati,
and fhrough 'Washington as well, as a
non-combatant. The Baltimore and Ohio,
however, wanted to. get. lnto" the southern
business from Ohio, and wanted a change
in the differentials-'both' out of Columbus. 1
and Cleveland. It asked that the differ
entials on Cincinnati against Washington
be wiped out, but it resulted in a reduc r
tion only. As it was, the Baltimore and
Ohio got a good share of the business. _
RATE CLERKS' MEETING.
' When the time came for the meeting of
the tourist rate sneet clerks, to fix up the
fares for this winter, the . Big Four as
serted that it. would insist upon a return
to former conditions, or at least a propor
tionate/reduction in its • rates through
Cincinnati. When the rate. clerks met at
Cincinnati the first of the week the tug
of war began. Last year the Baltimore
and Ohio rate between Cleveland and
Jaciironville was $46.50, > and that of the
Big Four was $45.15. By making the same
rate per mile over, the Big Four as
charged on the Baltimore and Ohio, the
latter adhere to the $46.50 rate, the fare
via the Big Four would be $41.35, a re
duction of $4.80. .
The rate clerk of the Big Four, bearing
instruction from the general passenger
agent, insisted upon the road naming the
latter rate. The other /lines marked it in
their sheet, but it is understood that the
Baltimore and Ohio has not decided 1 as
yet what it will do about it. If the pres
ent action stands, the whole scheme that
was worked through last year will have
been undone and the roads will be. back
with the^ same differentials'., as heretofore
on Cincinnati, but both roads will be ope
rating on a lower rate than formerly.
OTHER ROADS INVOLVED. x
The change of fares has considerable
significance, and will drag into the pres
ent controversy not only the Ohio roads,
but will extend down into the trunk-line
territory. The routing of business, from
Chicago, Toledo, Cleveland, Erie,; and
Buffalo will be changed by this.arrange
ment, and ticketing passengers out of Buf
falo, according to the C. P. A. ruling, will
likewise affect that business which goes
south from Buffalo through the -Albany
gateway. The little tussle . between the
two Ohio roads for a little business, there
