RIDS TOWN OF RATS

—For the first time in fifty years New

Mayor Harry E. Colweel, the city
council and other city officials, have
Harrison Lee. a negro, 11 years old,
for the boon. He was tak«n from his
home in Baltimore, Md., by two ne
groes and deserted here two weeks
ago. The lad was found by Police
man Joseph Bussard one night and
the police kept him while Charles P.
Warner of Yonkers, superintendent of
the Westchester county Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Chil
dren, was making up his mind what
to do him.
The boy watched city hall oats
make ineffectual attempts to catch
rats as big as themselves. Then he
rigged a "fishing" tackle, baited' with
cheese, poked his line down rat holes,
and for three days "fished" for rats.
He caught 67, of all sizes and ages,
utnil yesterday one big fellow stole
line, hook and sinker The boy last
night placed a large piece of lim
burger cheese near tha hole where
the tackle disappeared and waited
with a club. About 1 o'clock this
morning the big rat appeared and the
patient negro destroyed him with a
club. Not a rat has been seen in the
city bal today.
When the youngster was taken to
an asylum for negro orphans at River
dale today he wept. Captain Edward

WOMAN DONOR OF
ISLAND TO NATION
ATTACHED DY DOG
WEST POINT, N. Y., June 7.—
Scores of letters and telegrams were
sent to Miss Anna Bartlett Warner at
her home on Constitution Island, yes
terday, when it became^known that
she had been placed in danger of her
life when attacked and bitten by a
dog while out for a walk in the
grounds of her island estate
Miss Warner, who is 81 one years
old, is widely known through liter
ary work covering a period of many
years and through her having given
Constitution Island to the nation in
1008, in conjunction with Mrs. Russell
Sage. Under the terms of the gift
the island is to remain perpetually
in the ownership of the government,
forming part of the West Point mil
itary reservation, but Miss Warner
is to remain in possession of her
home there during her life.
Although the injuries suffered by
Miss Warner in her encounter with
the dog would have been compara
tively trifling if suffered by a younger
person, the shock of the encounter
prosptrated her and she was pro
nounced out of danger only yesterday.
She was bitten twice on one of her
hands, but the wounds are not now

JAMESTOWN, June 7—Fred Paul,
a resident of Valley City, who is a
helper in the express care between
Spokane and Forsythe, of which Roy
Pettey, formerly of this city, is mes
senger, was hit by the discharge of
a 30-30 rifle in baggage he was handl
ing Sunday morning and the amputa
tion of his leg is the result. The bag
gage was being loaded at Helena, Mon
ttana, and in some way the rifle,
which had carelessly been put in the
baggage loaded, was exploded. The
bullet passed through the calf of Mr.
Paul's leg and shattered the bone.
Mr. Pettey later found the bullet in his
train box, upon examination of the
rifle it was found to contain the ex
ploded shell and another loaded one
in the magazine. The owner of the
shipment has been arrested and will
be rigorously prosecuted.
