Deaf Mutes Fling Epithets in Court NEW YORK—Ther® wu a silent commotion of an extraordinary character before Magistrate Krotel In Center street court the other day when Henry J. Hecker, a deaf-mute pressman of 754 East One Hundred and Fifty second street, appeared as complain ant against Miss Nora Sullivan, a young woman of twenty, also a deaf-mute, of 3S0 Water street. Hecker charged that Miss Sulllran grossly Insulted him on the street last Saturday after noon. flinging a broadside of slander ous epithets at him from the tips of ber fingers snd then banging him on the head with an umbrella. The young woman, who Is short snd plump and hlghstrung. appeared In court In answer to a summons ob tslned by Hecker. There was no deaf-mute Interpreter In court when the case was called and Magistrate Krotel was at a loss to understand the multitude of high signs that were snapped at him. Hecker vainly talked himself Into a state of manual palsy, and court attendants were sent scurrying everywhere for an Interpreter. Finally Police Ser geant Quackenbos. who is six feet tall and built like & hack, was reached at police headquarters and came down to court while the quiet excitement wu at its height Complainant Hecker was pretty weak in the wrists when he took the stand snd related how he had been insulted and thwacked with the um brella. Quackenbos did not tranalate the Insults, but informed the court that in thumb and digit discourse the language was pretty fierce. Then Miss SulllTsn took the stand and talked so fast that Quackenboe couldn't get her. He told the magis trate she was having a fit of manual hysterics. He made swimming mo tions at the witness, wlg-wsgglng for her to become calm. There waa a great stillness in the court and at the same time a great tumult. All the deaf-mutes were talking at once and becoming purple in the face. At last Miss Sullivan talked herself into a swoon and waa carried to an ante-room. Brought out again, she talked herself into another swoon and came out of No. 2 quite limp. Then it was drawn from her that Hecker had made unpleasant left-handed remarks to her and that she was entirely justi fied in swinging at him with her um brella. "I guess this is all we can stand for one dsy," adjudged the court, mop ping his brow. "Case dismissed." As the two silent factions filed out of the courtroom there waa a wireless riot In the corridors until the mam moth Sergeant Qackenboa Intervened and waved them apart. Man Dies After Fifty Years' Silence |> IGBY, NOVA SCOTIA.—Within a \3 few hundred yards of a beach where 51 years ago two fishermen found him with his legs amputated. "Gerome," Nora Scotia's man of mystery, died a few days ago, silent to the end about his identity. Although he undoubtedly possessed the power of speech, "Gerome" had not conversed with snyone In the half cen tury he had been cared for by Dldler Comeau and the latter's sons and daughters. During all of this time _ "Gerome" had remained a mystery to the settlers here, most of whom are known as "returned Arcadians," being the descendants of the compatriots of Evangeline who returned to this part jf their adopted country after their ex pulsion by the English In 1755. Away back In the summer of 1861, according to tradition, a ship different from those usually seen here put off & small boat which made for the shore tnd deposited above the tide line an ibject that several hours later was Jiscovered to be a man. His legs had seen freshly amputated and there was i jug of water and a package of ship's biscuit beside the man, who had suf fered greatly from exposure. Wrapped in blankets and taken to the Comeau house, where, ever since be has been a welcome member of the $Ufn* /Man, *— household, the man was finally revived by a physician. In half a dozen lan guages the man was aaked: "What is your name?" To this ques tion. In Italian, propounded by the elder Comeau, the man made muttered reply: "Gerome!" Never after that, however, did "Gerome" utter a word except on one occasion when asked * here* he came from. "Trieste" was the reply made, seemingly in an un guarded moment. Physicians from all parts of the world, who have visited this Land of Evangeline in the 51 sumtners that have elapsed since "Gerome" was found on the beach, have studied the man's case. Most of them have agreed that be might have spoken had he de cided to do so; one or two have vouch safed tbe opinion that some terrible experience through which '•Qerome* passed frightened him out of his senses and rendered him unable to ut ter an Intelligible word. Girls to Enforce Hat Pin Ordinance ju tiR carn U CIT ( 6000 V Mr MM1 jgot r*TO CAfTAlfl i -w o- *- \ f/fluL t> UKf To s«« J CHICAGO.—Thieves to catch thieves, and women to catch women. If the first, why not the second? 80 reasons John McWeeny, chief of police. And since it sounded good to the head of Chicago's police depart ment thereupon outlined his plana for a regular beauty squad. Hat'pins caused his cogitations and the same pointed reasons, coupled with an old ordinance that never haa Jon« duty, will inspire the 20 girls he hopes to enlist in the service. "You see. my men are bashful." ex plalned the chief. "And men are any way. Now if you were standing on the corner and a pink cheeked girl str»ll •d by with the points of her bat pins sticking out a foot, would you arrest her? "No, you'd probably wink your ay« •t your brother ©(Bear and say. 'No. no. my no—she ain't breakln* the law.* So you see, we've Just got to have girls to catch girls—a regular beauty squad." Then when the woman with the hat pins strolls by, a fashionably dressed girl, wearing a tiny star where sh« formerly wore the pin of her sorority, will touch her on the shoulder and suggest that, "The captain wants you.** And herein lies just one fear that may wreck tbo proposed beauty squad before Its organization. What If tbe woman shouts: "What for?" and the beautj policeman says: "Your bat pins are too long: they stick out too far; you are under ar rest;" will the arrested one cry "Leave me slone or I'll scratch your eyes out?" Will tbls be followed by a reel hair* pulling contest? And will the original gentleman policeman hare to cry "break." stop tbe argument, and take both fighters for a ride In the blue wagon? These are questions experience alone can solve. And Chief McWeeny says he will take a chance on tbo battles Just to try out his plaa.
