Small Canine Leaped from Roof of
Three-Story Structure and Was
Instantly Killed.
A uiunbet' of spectators yesterday
afternoon witnessed the suicide of
"Pilnce," n young dog owned by
Frank Monroe, of SOS Washington" ave
nue. What prompted the nnlmal to
Its desperate djeil in not known; and
the motive Is likely to remain ob
scured in doubt forever. The canine
leaped fiom the joof of tho th rep
story brick structure at Washington
avenue and Linden street, and striking
on tho pavement directly In front of
Itelsman's news stand, was instantly
Fracture of the skull and vertebra
nt the base of neck are pionounced
to have caused death.
It was 2 o'clock when the suicide
occurred. The dog, a small specimen
of the senna "yaller dog" was frisk
ing playfully about the roof, on which
Its young muster allowed It to take
a short al rills'. Suddenly, ns bilsk
Ixuk from the street attracted Its at
tention, Prince scampered to tho edge,
looked down, nnd recognizing either
canlno friend oi- enemy save several
shrill yelps, and then wildly scam
pered about the playground once niotr,
A few Instants later, however, it gath
ered up speed, and lushing again to
the end slopped abiuptly, directly
over the Tuiklsh Uaths' establishment,
nnd then, with a sad, plaintive howl,
leaped off.
The Monroo family ate of the opin
ion that the untortunate dog, to which
they were greatly attached, was pois
oned. Dr. W. S. Decker, who exam
ined the remains, dcilaied that the ani
mal was poisoned.

vloted by twelve good men nnd due of

all bad reached their chairs, Supotin-
lendent Schubert gave the order to be

The performance by this aitlsL was
really worthy of special mention, nnd
when he played "llally 'Round the

Theie Is a Great Hole in His Leg.
Hns Lost so Much Blood That
Death Is Inevitable.
"tliuee up, dad: we aie going to pull
through all light." Although moi tally
wounded, Chester Staples, of Ciesco,
slowlv'und painfully inlseri himself on
his elbows, clenched his teeth, and
tiled to console his aged father.
Stnples lies ut tho Lackawanna hos
pital with ii great wound in his left
leg. the result of a shooting In a lum
ber camp near L'resco, on ihe Pocono
nouutaiu, about thirty-five miles from
tl'ls cliy. AVhlb- the wound In Itself
Im not sufllclent to cause death, the
amount of blood which Staples lost
has so weakened blm that the doctois
rogniri death as Inevitable.
Staplfs was shot about 11 o'clock
S'lturd'iy night and did not iccelve
medical attendance until 1 o'clock yo
lerdav afternoon. Several circum
stances are respionslble for this. Cres
co, the neaiesl place of habitation,
ios not boast of a physician, and a
doctor had to be summoned from K,Tt
S'ttoudsburg. When the word reached
Kwt Stroudsburg, Doctor Tiavest was
not at home nnd could not get to
fiesio until I o'clock the next day,
fourteen hours nfter the wounding.
Pitting that tlmo tho wound bled
piofusely. It Is due only to his sturdy
constitution that Staples lived to reach
this city.
S'taplos and his biolher. Charles.went
to the piopilelor of the lumber camp.
0eu P'dtrleh, and demanded wages
li them. Theie was tumble of some
kind and Peltrlch ordered them nway.
The two men retreated to the barn
in the rear of the house, followed later
by Peltrlch with a shot gun In his
hands. Pelllich sized up Chailes as
the cause of the trouble, and It Is
slid put the gun to hl slinuldii and
took aim.
JllSl OS be pulled the ttlggel Mlllll
one stiuck the gun. causing the shot
lo inli-s the person Intended nnd enler
Ihe Jolt leg of Chester above the ankle.
Staples fell to the ground and the
other lumbermen lushed to his ni
sUtnnce. When Staples was taken to the hos
pital last evening. Dr. Gates, assisted
by the hospital physicians, examined
the wound. The shot which stiuck
hlni was blrdseye. and literally blow a
hole through his leg. Doth the large
bones of the leg and other smaller
bones were ftlghtfully shatteied and
the muscles and flesh lorn to bits. A
large quantity of bltdsoye shot and
also a big piece of his trousuts were
extracted from the wound by Dr.
Oatrs. The finding nf this piece ot
clothing illusti.iles Ihe fence of ihe
dlsi barge. The fact that the shot did
not spiead far Indicates that the gnu
must have been held pietty i lose to tho
victim when llreri.
Staples Is tibout Ihlity ,ir of .ikc.
He Is a muscular, well-built man, with
a constitution of lion. l.ile last night
he was still alive, thanks to stimu
lants ndmlnlstercd by the doctors, hut
nothing short of n miracle will save
his life.

"The Christian lellgtou is ever "Hiv
ing onward and upward, and out union
encourages and provides for a. correct
expression of lellgious thought and nt
lis meetings provides a medium for till
that Is best and noblest to manifest
Itself. In Its songs we can expiess
our noble,t feelings and In the prayers
i. in pom out our longings for the life
for which we were cteated. The
prayer Is also a confession of our

outside of the church, 'nor was It

Individual Is that It Imposes tho great
and potent lesson of discipline, by
making minds subservient to the lofty
piluolplex and teachings left us.
"The society stands for all that Is
pine, title and lovely and wv owe on
uulalteiing nlleglnnce to Its loyal ser
vice. We must contlnuo in our woik

linn! lesult will be that we out selves
will bear Clnlsl's likeness."
