Chicago.—Patrick Fehey, who says
he lives at 173 Chestnut street, told the
police that some one had robbed him of
$11 while he was taking his afternoon
siesta in a North Clark street saloon.
Patrick's legs are off above where his
knees should be. The stubs are pro
tected by heavy leather casings.
"To think that any man could be so
low as to rob a cripple! And to take
the money out of there, at that!" said
Fehey to the police, indicating the
leather casing about his right stub.
"But perhaps I've no kick coming after
all," he continued, lifting on high in
turn the left leg. "For I've just $1.000
tucked away in that one. One thousand
dollars! They picked the wrong leg."
The police agreed that the joke was
