POLICE DOGS HELP
IN WAR ON
8agaciout Animal Go With Oluacoata
on Patrol In Outlying Soctiona.
New York. New York's police dogs
are having a large part In cleaning up
crime In the Flatbush section of
Brooklyn and In making it a place
where women may walk the streets
r.afely late at night without fear of an
noyance. The vigilance and activity
of the dogs have done much to rid this
c ozy settlement of detached houses of
tramps, Idlers and criminals. The doga
have also done much In lUverdule,
where several were dispatched after a
series of burglaries.
The police department Is devoting
considerable time to the serious train
ing of these dogs with a view to find
ing out to what extent they may be
used in certain lines of police work.
Kennels for the accommodation of
twenty-four dogs have been built at
Foster avenue and Ocean parkway,
two blocks from the Farkvllle police
station, and a good sized dogs' hos
pital has been constructed, in which
the animals when 111 may be Isolated
and receive veterinary treatment.
There are twelve full grown Belgian
and German shepherd dogs In the de
partment, and to these may be added
a litter of nine German shepherd pup
pies, which arrived at the kennels re
cently. The dogs are In charge of
Sergeant Joseph Hlckey, who has thir
teen patrolmen to assist him in their
handling. A dog Is assigned to each
patrolman. Every night the polke go
out to patrol with the animals. The
dogs wear large leather muzzles, to
that they may not bite any one, for
they are powerful enough to tear a
man limb from limb.

A rise of temperature in the sur
rounding air diminishes the amount of
oxygen consumed and the amount of
dioxide discharged. A fall of tempera
ture has the epposite effect. In addi
tion, the overheated nlr forms a hot
Jacket around the body which prevents
the radiation of heat necessary to keep
the body in a healthy condition. With
a sedentary occupation a temperature
of from Gl to 70 should.be maintained
for comfort and health.
