TWENTY SHOTS FIRED AT IT Patrolman's Uniform Torn to Bita Before Infuriated Animal la Con quered—Great Excitement in Neighborhood. New York.—In a battle to end the life of a cat that had gone mad and bitten two little children the uniform of Patrolman Krams of the East Fifth street station was torn to bits by the animal. The cat was killed after 20 shots had been fired at it and a half dozen bullets had lodged in its body. During the firing necessary to kill the animal the greatest excitement prevailed in the neighborhood of First avenue and Seventh street. From vantage points residents watched the shooting and the attacks of the ani mal upon the policeman. The cat, a pet in the family of Adolph Finkelstein of 120 Seventh street, was left in the flat on the fourth floor with Mary Finkelstein, six years old, and Hannah Taubinkinmel, four years old, who Jives on the first floor. The pet gave birth to a litter of kittens four weeks ago, and the children, it is said, had been playing with the little ones. "Without warning the cat made a leap at Mary and landed on her chest. Its claws failed to go through her gar ments, and as it fell to the ground It ripped her stocking, tore her leg with its claws and sunk its teeth into the limb. It then turned upon the other child and bit her in the hand. With the blood streaming from their wounds and frightened nearly Into spasms, the two children ran from the flat. Samuel Finkelstein, 15 years old, escaped with a scratch on his neck. About this time the parents came home. Policeman Krams was called and went into the flat. Armed with a broom and his revolver, ho entered the front room. There was a bunch of fur and claws in the air. He fired T/j ✓s h as The Maddened Cat Sunk Its CL.ws In to the Officer's Face. three shots, and then it was gone. It had taken refuge in the kitchen, but in the minute it had battled with the policeman it had torn his uniform and ripped his hands. Krams followed and beating back the cat's attack with the broom man aged to put two shots into its neck. With a yell the animal went through the open window to the fire escape and then made a leap into the air. The policeman was surprised to see it crouching in the corner of the yard, alive and apparently full of fight. Re loading his revolver he went to the yard. Krams fired again, and with the first shot the cat came at him. When ever it struck his uniform it tore it. The policeman emptied his revolver and beat a retreat. In his 12 shots he had three hits. Out of ammunition lie hastened to Tompkins square park, where he got a fresh supply and another policeman. The two policemen then fired eight shots. One went into the brain of the animal and ended its life. The street was well-nigh impassable when the policemen, carrying the dead cat, started for the police sta tion. There it was decided to send the body to the Willard Parker hos pital to determine if the cat was in fected by rabies. The children who bad been bitten were taken to Belle vue, where their wounds were cau terised. Aged Hermit Arranges Own Funeral.

HEW NAVAL CHIEF NEWBERRY 8UCCEED3 METCALF A3 SECRETARY. rta* Held Poet of First Assistant in Department Sine* 1905— Is a Busi ness Man But Has Had Naval Experience. Washington.—Secretary of the Navy Victor H. Metcalf tendered his resig nation to the president to take effect on December 1. The president accept ed his resignation and appointed As sistant Secretary of the Navy Truman H. Newberry as his successor. Ill health was the cause of Mr. Met calf's resignation. He has been suf fering for a year from nervous break down that has rendered It impossible for him to remain at his desk for any length of time, and the chronic nature of his trouble lias caused him to aban don hope of recovery while burdened with the cares of office. In accepting Mr. Metcalf's resigna tion, the president recognized the im possibility of his retaining office, and expressed his reluctance to give up the assistance which Mr. Metcalf had given him both as secretary of com merce and labor and as secretary of the navy. The appointment of Mr. Newberry comes as no surprise, for it has been generally understood that he was the man for the navy portfolio should Mr. Metcalf find it necessary to retire. The appointment also is recognized as one which is almost certain to continue into the term of Mr. Taft. Mr. New berry has been a close friend and stanch supporter of the president elect. Secretary Newberry has had naval service. He took great interest In the Michigan state naval brigade a few years ago, serving successively as landsman, lieutenant, and navigator. He volunteered for service In the Spanish war and was given a commis sion as a lieutenant of the junior Truman H. Newberry. grade in May, 1898. He served throughout the war on the Yosemite. Mr. Newberry entered the naval de partment as a business man, having been director in several manufacturing concerns at Detroit. Several years ago Mr. Newberry served successively as superintendent of construction, pay master, and general freight and pas senger agent of the Detroit, Bay City & Alpena Railway Company. As assistant secretary of the navy he has taken an important hand in the business work of the department and has held extremely close relations with President Roosevelt. Having held the position of assistant secre tary of the navy at one time himself, President Roosevelt experienced satis faction in advancing Mr. Newberry. REASONS OF THE DRUGGI3T. For Not Having in Stock the Thing Called for by the Customer. Druggists are unaccountable folk surely. The other day a man was looking for a certain patented article and tried five drug stores in turn in the same neighborhood before he was successful. Naturally In the stores where he failed, the offer of something just as good was made, but that wasn't the thing that hist him hardest. In the second store the druggist said: "1 did have that stuff in stock, but I never had any call for it. The only people who ever asked for it were the agents of the company, and they were around here ail the time to see if we had It in stock. So I gave It up." In the next store, a block away, the druggist said: "Yes, I did keep that once, but when I ran out of the first B'ipply I never could get the company to send any more. I was looking out for the wagon all the time, but for three weeks at a time they never sent it up here, so 1 got tired of waiting. Now 1 don't keep it." You can tie them, but you can't beat hem.
