He has been pronounced fatally in

He has broken nearly every bone in
his arms and legs.
His scalp has been torn from his

came upon a well which had gone dry,
but which had not been filled up or
covered over. Willie had a large-bump
of inquisitiveness, and the well was a
ohallelTge to him. He climbed up on
the curb and leaned over and peered
into the depths. His eye did net im

further over. The curb had decayed
and it collapsed under his weight, and

of the well. It was thirty-three feet to
the bottom, and when Willie reached

Wife Returns to Husband's Home Aft
er Long Absence and Starts a Fight
NEW YORK, Oct. 15.—A female
"Enoch Arden" appeared in Kings
bridge yesterday, but, unlike the fam
ous character of Tennyson, she did not
so quietly away, leaving the field to
her successor. Instead Mrs. George
Shrady, wife of one of the chief heirs
to the famous Bailey estate, finding
Miss Ella Tucker, who she was led to
believe was another wife of Shrady,
in an upstairs room of the house from
which the wife disappeared three years
ago, seized her by the throat and, drag
ging her downstairs, was vigorously
pummeling her when George Shrady
walked in.
At this the female "Enoch Arden"
sprang at her husband and a furious
straggle ensued. At its height a mys
terious man in black, who had escorted
-Mrs. Shrady back to her home, en
tered, and while he engaged Shrady,
the returned wife renewed her attack
on Miss Tucker.
They fought all over the first floor
and then out on the beautiful lawn,
which surrounds the fine old Bailey
mansion. Neighbors telephoned for the
police and the entire part3 T was escorted
to the Kingsbridge station.
It was there set forth that George
Shrady, who describes himself as a
man of leisure, six years ago was mar
ried to the woman who yesterday re
appeared as mysteriously as s*he had
disappeared three years ago. Her maid
en name is not known. Neither of
them would reveal it, nor would the
mysterious man in black reveal his
It was told to the police that prior
to the disappearance of Mrs. Shrady
Miss Tucker had become an inmate of
the house. Then one day the wife
mysteriously disappeared. She left no
word behind, and three long years
passed without news of her. Yesterday
while Shrady was out his wife returned
to the old homestead. She entered by
the back door and at once made her
way upstairs. In a handsomely fur
nished boudoir the wife found Miss
Tinker. Not a word was spoken by
either. Mrs. Shrady threw one arm
around the young woman's neck. With
her free hand she seized Miss Tuck
er's hair and slowly, resolutely dragged
her flown stairs. •
Then ensued the fierce struggle in
the dining room, which was continued
in the parlor, where the husband and
the stranger became engaged, and was
carried on through the parlor window
to the lawn, where the police inter
"Is this woman you-r wife?" asked the
police sergeant.
'She is not," replied Shrady.
"I married him six years ago," said
the wife.
"And three years ago you left me,"
interrupted Shrady. "I have^ heard
nothing from you since until today.
You are not my wife. I refuse to rec
ognize you any longer."
"'Nevertheless, you are his wife," re
sumed the sergeant. "And since he re
fused to recognize you or admit you to
his home, I advise you to go to court
"I will," replied the wife', emphatical
At the door of the police station the
party separated, and again the wife and

Talks to His Imprisoned Bride
Till Police Appear. %
NEW YORK. Oct. 15.—Edward Carroll
and Estella Hertzman, two young people,
■who dwell in Brooklyn, enacted a modern
Romeo and Juliet drama, much to the
disgust of the* girl's parents, on Monday
night. Her balcony was th«.bky-window
of her parents' home, qn the third floor of
the flat house at Broadway and Linden
street. In the absence of a vine Carl
climbed "up an elevated railroad pillar
and from that point of vantage held con
verse with Estella until the police chased
him away.
The Hertzmans did not encourage the
attentions of Carroll to their daughter,
and when they came home a week ago
and announced that they had been mar
ried the wrath of her father caused both
to flee. The father brought the girl back
and announced that she would have to
stay in the house until he took steps to
have the marriage annulled. Carfoll, who
is employed by the Brooklyn Rapid Trans
it company, is twenty-six years old, while
his wife is only fifteen.
Driven to desperation over the separa
tion from the girl, Carroll decided to com
municate with her or die in the attempt.
From the street in front of her home he
could see her in the third story window,
but conversation at that distance was out
of the question. So he climbed warily up
on the elevated structure in front of the
house, and sat on the edge, where he was
in danger of being struck by passing
trains. For only a few minutes he was
able to talk, for the girl's "mother discov
ered the young man and called the po
lice. He protested that he had a right to
talk to his wife, but they told him to run
along, and he took their advice. Now
Estella is disconsolate.
Dr. Heller, of Vienna, Proclaims Allege*
Discoveries Ha Has Made
VIENNA, Oct. 15.—Dr. Heller, director
of the Jewish Institute for Blind Chil
dren, describes some highly interesting
and important observations which he has
made in recent years.
He insists that educators of the blind
are wrong in assuming from the first that
the mind of the blind is awakened and
instructed by the sense of touch. He says
that the progressive phenomena of a
blind child develop so minutely as to be
microscopical. Close study has revealed to
I him, he asserts, that, except in those who
are also deaf, the blind are developed
mentally by hearing, not by touching.
This explains why so many of the blind,
led by fancy and imagination, exist in a
dream life, which, while it makes poetical
beings of theni, also renders them a prey
to distress and misery.
Dr. Heller lays down the law that
schools for the blind of the future must
I teach them to recognize by the ear what
they have learned to conceive by touch
ing—material, dimensions, form, numbers,
and so on.
t He says, too, that in teaching them
great attention must be devoted to chang
ing the passive imagination of the blind
into an. active imagination, a process very
slow because the blind are ; nearly en
thralled by passive imagination. But it is
this change to active imagination which,
awakens the creative power in them.
The change can be effected slowly by
giving blind children freedom in their
play, by letting- them represent in their
I own way what they grasp of nature and
life, and placing at their disposal mate
rials and tools and leaving to them what
they will make with them and how they
will set about it.
But Dr. Heller says with emphasis that
their teachers should never forget that
the hand of the blind is the organ that
at once understands and executes, and
that if they are rightly taught to perceive
their manual capacity must be the most
perfect of all.

Tom Watson In a Characteristic Pose
Hero of Gallows Miracle Soon
to Be Given Freedom
LONDON, Oct. 15.—The annals of crime
afford no more thrilling or grewsome
scenes than those in which John Lee, now
about to be released after twenty years
of penal servitude, was actor. A servant,
he was convicted of murdering liis mis
tress, an elderly woman of Devonshire.
The motive -suggested was that she had
reduced his wages 12 cents a week.
When placed on the scaffold and the
lever was pulled the trap refused to work.
Agahv the lever was pulled without avail.
<Then the hangman and the 1 warden,
standing each side of Lee, tried to force
the trap down, but failed. With the rope
around his neck Lee was marched aside,
when the trap immediately opened. Lee
was again placed in position and again
all efforts of the hangman and two war
dens failed to* force the trap open, and
amid a scene of terrible excitement, dur
ing which one warden fainted^ the con
demned man was again marched off, when
again the trap worked withput difficulty.
A third time this awful scene was en
acted, with the same result, and the sher
iff, unable to bear the strain *ny longer,
ordered that the proceedings stop. On
the facts being reported to the home secre
tary he commuted Lee's sentence to penal
servitude for life.
Lee himself acted like a dazed man, al
lowing himself to be led backward and
forward mechanically. The only words he
uttered were, "I am innocent."
No satisfactory explanation of the fail
ure of the trap was ever given. A white
pigeon fluttered round the scaffold during
the attempts to hang him.
Wealthy Neighbors in Litigation
Over a Trifle
UTICA, N. V.." Oct. 15.— Arow among
wealthy neighbors has divided the town of
WhiteslTCre. Mrs. Carolyn Halliday haa
sued H. E. Brocy. a pillar in the Methodist
church, for 50 cents. A little white calf is
the cause, and the resultant case has all
the legal obliquity of the famous lowa
calf litigation, that went to the United
States supreme court three times.
A few nights ago a bolt of lightning
set fire to a barn on the Halliday prem
ises, after which a white calf was missed.
Brocy. who occupies the adjoining farm,
found it and sold it to a Vermont farmer.
He did not know who owned it, but of
fered to turn over the money received.
Mrs. Halliday demanded the calf, and
Brocy figured out how many quarts of
milk it must have drunk, basing his com
putation on the shortage that was notice
able in the product from the cow that fed
it. Under protest the claim was paid, but
Mrs. Halliday at once brought suit to re
cover the half-dollar.
While Mr. Brocy attended prayer meet
ing last evening a constable stood on the
steps with a summons and served it at
the end of the services. Both of the par
ties named in the action are wealthy, but
each persists in fighting the case to the
