Turns the Station Upside Down for a Period of Two Weeks. The officials of (ho Children's socie ty breathed a sigh of relief when they tot rid of a two-year-old baby boy who was on their hands the last two weelcs, says the New York Sun. There have V.~"n hundreds of two-year-olds in the society rooms siuc-e the organization was founded, but none ever coir,pared with the little unknown who made things so lively that there wasn't, an hour's peace while he staved in the place. On the night of Oct. 4 little San son, as he was quickly called, was Tound in Corlears Hoc.k Park, where he had been abandoned. Ii.« was turned ovev to a cop, who took him to the Delancey street station. Thence ne was shipped to the Children's socie ty. He was a pretty little youngster, With light hair, big blue eyes and fair complexion, and he was fairly well' dressed. 1 Although unable to talk, lie made it mown that lie wanted a drink of water and a couple of r- j-s on reserve made a rush to wait on him. When the tot, ilranl his fill I.e. lot tlie dipper fly and :aught Policeman Sullivan over the eye. He laughed in glee when he saw the cop rubbing the sore spot and straight away bawled for all he was worth until the dipper was handed back to him. A second time he let it rip and it. crashed through a window of the back room. Seeing that he had donp some dc struct ion, he appeared to tie happy for while, but once his eves rested on :he checkers and dominoes on the 1 lable he slid off tho bench and toddled uver. The big cops didn't, like the in terrupllon .of file game, but there was nothing to do but quit then and there. Samson gathered all the checkers and dominoes together and then let loose a fusillade. Laughing and chuckling, he threw every one at the cops, who dodged and lied from the room. Left alone, Samson toddled across the room and kicked over every cuspi dor, overturned benches and chairs and with a mighty effort tipped the heavy table. The sergeant, hearing Ihe rocket., rushed in and just nailed Samson in the act of hurling a brush through a pane of glass. The cops were accused of cowardice for not standing their ground and the door man was threatened with charges. Two bluccoats were detailed to watch the youngster, while the others were set to wsrlt straightening out the dis ordered room. A certain newspaper devil was explain ing to a young lady last week the diflerence between printing and publishing. He having concluded, she shyly said: "Now von may print a kiss on my cheek, but you must not publish it." With that he locked the fair form in his arms so it would not pi, and went to press.
