When a man loses his fnlso teeth he

Battalion Fire Chief Hugh Colgnn nnd
six llremen were severely burned about
their heads and faces this morning while
lighting a fire In Bridesburrf Chief Col
gan was tho most seriously injured. Ho
refused to go to a hospital, and, after re
ceiving temporary treatment, remained
on the scene and directed tho firemen In
their work. Tho other men aro Itusscll
Stackhouse, Charles Welser and William
MoKnlght. of Engine Company No. 7, and
Albert Broadbent, Sylvester Lelby nnd
Harry Shultz, of Engine Company No. 14,
i ney were nlso treated at the fire.
The chief and llremen wero engaged in
extinguishing a blaze in the religious sup
ply store of Joseph Wcsotowskl, Almond
and Orthodox streets, when tho ceiling
of the storeroom fell upon them. Other
firemen helped them to get out of tho
building and beat out the flames that en
veloped their clothing.
Tho fire destioyed the stock of Weso
towskl's store, entailing a loss of about
J.WO, and damaged the contents of tho
basement of tho building, which was oc
cupied by tho Polish American Citizens'
Club. Tho loss to tho club Is said to be
about J10O0, which, with damage of nbout
11000 to the building, brings tho total loss
Although Wesotowbkl had nt llrst
thought tho fire was caused by enemies,
it la believed that It was started by an
overheated stove, since no person was
seen near the building previous to the
discovery of tho Hie, and a large holo
burned near tho stove Indicated that the
blaze had started there.

The sound of crashing glass and jan
gling tinware aroused Policeman Joe Hill
from a reverie as he stood at East Clrard
avenue. Glancing down the street he was
amazed to see a man tossing pitchers
and cup3 In the air for the edincatlon of
a number of youngsters. Several of the
cups broke In the street Then the Jug
Bier simply stepped to the front of a
crockery establishment and took a fresh
supply from a stand on the sidewalk.
When a pitcher broke he did likewise.
At one stage of the game he had a dish
pan, two glasses and a coal scuttle
whirling through the air at once, Tho
cop made a dash for the juggler and
readied hhn just as the proprietor of the
storu discovered the ruin.
"There Is no cause for excitement." aald
the open-air performer. "I'll pay for the
damage," He figured that he broke seven
glasses and five cups and paid the pro
prietor 60 cents.
Then he pad to clear the street of the
debris. And afteriall that he was taken
to the East Qlrard avenue station. The
prisoner saii he was Charles Ross, of
California, and told Magistrate Stevenson
he was practicing up for the summer
"I usually spend the springtime In
Cuba," he muttered somewhat unsteadily,
"because It Inspires me In my work."
"Well, you'll have to go to a cheaper
resort temporarily," the Judge replied,
"and we call it the House of Correction "
"I'm glad the authorities take so much
Interest In me." answered Jtoss

many who believe that James Augustus
sleeps with his eyes open. This may have
been the case today when he was hunt

shooting at a big grizzly In front of a fur
rier's shop, but the bear never moved. If
Crockett had gone close enough to the
animal he would have noticed that It was
rooted to the spot with cement. Being
merely a stuffed grizzly. It had been In
the same place for years.
The hunter didn't seem to see Police
man Joe Barr when he arrived and simply
looked blank when he was requested to
stop shooting. In fact, the cop had to
shake Joe to prove that he was around.
He also had trouble In convincing the
prisoner that his revolver waa unloaded.
When he faced Magistrate Stevenson,
at the Katt Clrard avenue station, Crock

"A wideawake man like you should
have a Job," said the Judge.
"I'm a hunter," said Crockett.
"You have hunted trouble this time,"
said the Magistrate, "and you will find
happy .hunting grounds at Holmesburg on
the Delaware for the next three months."
