APRIL 25. 190T - PRICE ovgf;IfT = KELUHER'S NOSE It Led Its Owner This Morn ing to the Hiding Place of a Stolen Silver Watch. VALUE OF A KEEN SCENT It .Will Probably Secure the Promotion of An Acting : V. " '' ;i v t Patrolman to fbe Detective Force. “There is a tide in the affairs of men whieh taken at the flood leads on to fortune,” said the late lamented William Shakespeare. Acting Patrolman Kella her of the Gregory street station caught the tide in his affairs about daylight this morning, and if he is not slated for pro motion to the detective force it will prob ably be on account of the superior “pull” of rival aspirants. A good detective must, have the scent of a thoroughbred bloodhound, and, according to Kellaher's own story, there’s nothing the matter with his olfactory nerves. This fact led him to make a most remarkable discov ery of a stolen watch. He was patroll ing Hudson street this morning when a somewhat seedy individual, who had been working the growler overtime, ac costed him with:— > “Say, Mr. Policeman, I’ve been rob t>ed. Somebody went through me. My Watch is gone.” Kellaher sized up the man and was Hot satisfied with the complaint. The man shuffled away, and suddenly Keila her bethought himself that the man might make a complaint against' him for not exerting himself more in in vestigating his complaint. “What's your name?” he asked of the man. “Come here and give me your name and address.” “Aw, let it go. The watch was a Cheap silver turnip, anyhow. I’m going home,” and the man_ ambled away. Kellaher kept thinking about the man ■who made the complaint. Suddenly an Italian ragpicker hove into view, with a bundle suspended from a stick over lift shoulder. “Drop that bundle; I want to examine It,” said Kellaher. The man remonstrated in Italian, but Kellaher made him open the bundle. A cheap silver watch rolled out. “I thought so,” said Kellaher. * “I felt sure I detected the odor of some thing in that bag similar to the odor of the man who made the complaint. You’ll go to the station with me and explain how you came into possession of the watch. The Italian was booked as “John O’Bill,” No. 325 Railroad avenue, and he was charged with being a disorderly person. • The case was laid ever until tomor r°w. * G. A. R. RITES FOR GEN. BRADY Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon over the body of General Thomas Brady, commander of E. Van Houten G. A. R. Poet, Who died of kid ney troubles last Friday in the City Hos pital. The body was this morning placed In the soldiers’ vault and will be sent to Indiana for interment. General Brady was one time U. 8.

A STUPENDOUS SHOW. Baronin aad Bailey Are Coming Here on May 2, Nearly all the European papers have said “they' saw too much” in the Rar num & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth, and that “it certainly required four vis its to see all the attractions.” TheTe are wonderful acts. Twenty champion rid ers appear at various times during the exhibition, all of whom do novel and dar ing feats. The grand equestrian tourna ment is still another great feature, and contains all kinds of riding exhibitions. A thrilling and perilous headforemost dive is made from the roof of the canvas into a net, and the turning of a triple somersault in mid-air causes everyone to wonder at each performance why the daring performer is not instantly killed. Ancilotti, the modem Ariel, Volo, the Volitant, Chico and Sold, the wonderful unicyclists, all tempt death in defying the law of gravitation, while the double simultaneous slide for life by two Japan ese artists thrills everyone. And comic episodes are enacted in the three rings and upon the stages with great rapidity, which in turn are succeeded by the train ed animals. Three herds of elephants and a herd of giraffes are in the menag eries, with cages of wild beasts. The ex hibition in the menagerie tent contains giants, midgets and a huge collection of freaks, and lots of magicians, jugglers, dancers, musicians and specialists. It is * a grand and glorious exhibition, and yfill come here on 96 railroad cars, with 500 horses, elephants, 12 acres of teats, and a stupendous advance corps, and will exhibit its thousand novel features in three rings, on three elevhted stages, and hippodrome race track—or what is equiv alent to six rings. The big show’s date ■here is Monday, May 2. In all cities where the show will exhibit the parade will take place the morning of arrival.
