Terrible Besalt of a Joke Flayed by a Bay
oa Bis UtUe Sister.
A pall hangs over the house of John
Powell, who resides in tbe little hamlet
of Prospect Plains, N. J., about 12 miles
from this city, by reason of the untimely
death of. Mary ToweU, his bright 12-
year-old daughter. Her death was the
resnlt of a practical joke played by her
brother, who is nearly crazed by the out
come of his thoughtlessness.
Tbe children were playing about the
house in the evening when Mary tie-
thought herself of some doll clothes she
had left in the cellar. She was of a quiet
and timid disposition and did not enjoy
a trip into the darkness of the cellar. She
finally conquered her fears sufficiently to
hurry down stain, and just as she thought
sho was out of harm's way her brother
appeared, and the thought occurred to
him that now was his opportunity to
give Mary a fright. He avaded himself
of the chance and quickly closed the eel
lar door as Mary reached for the knob.
When the girl realized that she was
alone in the dark, she screamed in ter
ror. To increase her fright, tbe boy gave
vent to a series of sounds that made the
little girl nearly frantic.
The boy listened to his sister' cries
nntil ber scream grew fainter and

he rushed in search of his mother, who
was horrified to find her daughter was
dead. A physician was summoned, who
gave it as his opinion that the little one's
death was tbe result of acrasm produced
by fright. Tbo boy, who was the cause
of his sister's death, lies in bed, tossing
about and mooning, and refuses to be

A dispatch from "Waverly, Ia., says:
To tbe indigent people of Bremer county
the prospects of a journey "over the
hills to the tioorhouse will henceforth
be robbed of mniiy ot its terrors, for,
through the generosity of Mr. Abraham
Slimmer, those who are so unfortunate
as to become public charges will dwell
in marble balls. Mr. Slimmer today
dropped into the county auditor' office
while the board of supervisors was in
session and pleasantly surprised that
body by presenting it with a deed of
his palatial mansion that overlooks the
city from the west, and which, with the
beautiful park surrounding it, is valued
at $20,000. Tho only condition of the
transfer is that the dwelling should be
need exclusively as a home for poor per
sons, and the donor takes it npon him
self to pay tho expenses ot tbe establish
ment till his death.
"Leg ralllaaT Legally Deflaed.
Theexpressive but questionable phrase
"pulling a leg" was defined by tbe Berks
county court the other day. In the divorce
case of Lewis W.Yocnm against his wife,a
letter written by the latter wa produced.
in which aho told her husband if he
wanted hi "leg pulled" she would do it.
The question was asked what was meant
by "pulling a leg." J. IL Jacobs, coun
sel for tbe defense, said it was a slang
term, meaning to get money from an
other without giving an equivalent. The
court acquiesced in this definition of
"leg pulling. Heading (Pa.) Dispatch.
