VARIOUS TROUBLES IN
Frod Deloakoy Struck on the Head
with a Stone During a Quarrel in
Which a Knife Was Pulled Lar
ceny Case and a Perjury Charge
Tried by Alderman Atkinson.
Despite the enervating effect of the
hfat, which has sort of knocked news
happenings Into fi cocked hat. Alder
man Atkinson had three cases before
him, of somewhat more than ordinary
First In magnitude was the assault
and battery charge brought by Fred
Deloskey, of Forty-second street. De
loFkey has been In the public prints
before, but this time he appeared in
a new role, that of prosecutor. Delos
key was In a fight yesterday In front
of the new Italian Catholic church on
Fallbrook street. According to his
Mory, it was a warm fight. There
were things doing there that were ns
caloric as the weather: and Dclos
key's appearance bore out his story.
He had a gash on the hack of his head,
from which the blood had flown quite
freely, crimsoning his neck and his
How It all happened was this wise,
said Deloskey. He had been cm
ployed for some days at painting the
church. With him were two Italian
painters from Philadelphia. It seems
that Deloskey Is a union painter, while
his co-laborers are on the outside of
the ranks. Deloskey reminded them
ot this, or something of that sort;
but anyhow, bad feeling arose between
himself and the strangers, and words
that rivalled the weather passed from
one side to the other. The feeling
grew and the words Increased in
warmth, until the climax was reached
yesterday afternoon and blows were
struck. Deloskey avers that one of
his foes struck him on the head with
a stone, on the same spot from whence
the blood flowed. The other had a
ready knife and its appearance pro
vented him from taking care of him
self. It might bo said that Deloskey Is
a most powerful man, as the police
can testify, and there must have "been
some good reason for him not defend
ing himself. The knife wielded or
brandished by the other fellow was
the "reason" In this Instance, Deloskey
said, and he was forced to flee before
Constable Jloran was given warrants
for the alleged assailants of Deloskey,
which he served on them last night.
FROM OVER GREENFIELD "WAY.
The second case heard by Alderman
Atkinson was from over Greenfield
It was a case of larceny and receiv
ing, in which Farmer Luther E. Leo
was prosecutor and another farmer,
Frank Pierce, and Gertrude Pierce
Lee had the Pierces for his house
keepers, and after their removal from
his home in April last, he missed some
Of his furniture. He suspected the
Pierces, but he wasn't sure of his
ground until this week, when he was
given good reason to believe that the
rfilsslng goods could be located In the
Pierces' possession If the law's powers
were invoked. Accordingly he made
information against his former ten
ants, and a search of the latter's place
yesterday revealed the presence of the
jAt the. hearing. Pierce admitted the
possession. of the" goods and, though he
did not explain their prtsenco at his
home, he'. Insisted that it was his in
tention to so inform Lee,
.'The alderman held Pierce in $200 ball,
oh the charge of larceny, but the other
defendant, Gertrude Pierce, who was
charged with receiving the goods, he
discharged. There was no evidence to
connect her with the transaction.
The last case was a sequel to the
fortune-telling case from the Last
Chance settlement, the one in which
Mary, the Dane, the reader of cards,
.was an amusing figure.
Yesterday's case was one of perjury,
in which Mrs. Agnes Stone was the
prosecutrix. Mrs. Stone is the wife of
the man who lost the gold watch,
which, from the card-reading of Mary
the Dane, was Indicated was stolen by
Blojso Andros. Andros was arrested,
but was discharged. Mrs. Stone, to re
venge herself, had Joseph Megal, a
friend and advisor of Andros, arrested
for selling Intoxcants without a license.
She swore at the time that Megal used
to buy lager by the keg and then sell it
to the residents of the settlement in
large quantities, giving them Immense
ly greater measure than If they pur
chased it at a licensed taloon, Immedl
aitely after his arrest by Mrs. atone,
Megal had her nrrested on the charge
it perjury, declaring that she swore
falsely when she accused him of selling
without a license. Andros was Megal's
witness. Now, Mrs. Stone proceeds to
have both Megal arid Andros arrested,
an the same charge, deducing that
they swore falsely against her when
they swore that 6he swore falsely
sgalnst them In the other case, which
:s now before the court,
.,It was a case for a Jury to find who
aa the storyteller, the alderman be
leved, so he held Andros and Megal to
nvnlt the grand Jury's action.

A Long Drawn Out and Uneventful

The poor board mot In regular ses
sion last, night, and before any busi
ness wns transacted the directors
spent a quarter of an hour haggling
over a bill from Undertaker Burns
for caring for and Interring tho de
ceased child of James Callahan. Mr.
Burns, It appeared, was not author
ized by nny member of tho board to
hury tho child, though he did ac
quaint several directors with the facts
and only awaited their consent. In
the meantime, however, the neighbors
became worried, as tho case was one
of diphtheria, and tho body hod al
ready been exposed over the allotted
time, so he had buried the child. The
directors obejeted both to the price,
$20, and tho fact that he had not
been definitely instructed by the
Lynch moved that the bill be paid.
McCabo wanted Burns to drop to $15,
which he refused to do, but, In a Jok
ing way, said he wouldn't haggle over
a dollar and would take $19. The
motion was seconded and lost.
McCahe then asked if the under
taker would take $lfi, Mr. Burns said
that as he would have to sue for his
pay if he did not accept the $16 he
would confer an ant of charity on the
board and donate the $4 to It. On
motion of McCahe, the revised bill
was ordered paid.

ACTING NEVER BETTEE.
Our Players Are Abies Than Those
of Booth's Heyday.
Franklin I'ylei, in Kieijhody' Magazine.
After making due allowance for the
direction of memory and the enchant
ment of distance, tho fact remains
clear that the world has no Booth
on the stago at this beginning of a
century that may end without pro
ducing one. But that proves nothing
against my contention that our play
ers, as a body are abler than those
of Booth's heyday that they hava
risen by merit to higher standards
that acting Is In a good nnd steadily
Improving condition. Audiences demand
far moro than they used to, and get it,
too, Tho noisy declamation of bun
combe will no longer excite a gallery,
except to ridicule, and the parquet
spurns it with silence that Is still moro
damning. Characters In dramatic, fic
tion must talk and act as persons In
real life might under tho samo cir
cumstances, and the author must write
to that purpose, leaving it to the actors
to complete the illusion of naturalness,
I say "Illusion," because tho effect
of utioxaggeration, of being absolutely
true to life, is not created on tho stage
by literal truthfulness, The acme of
skill In the acting of the present day
lies In such speech and pantnmiuo as
will carry tho semblance of truth
across tho footlights by expert fals
ities, Tho fond wooer must make you
believe that ho breathes his forbidden
lovo to his timid sweetheart so softly
and covertly that her alert mother,
In tho same room Is unaware of what
)s going on, yet he hns to mako you
hear and see It five times as far away,
The vllllan whispers his plot Into tho
private ear of a confederate, yet the
furthermost boy in tho gallery must
get every word of It, The art of act
ing, as taught and practised, is direct
ed to making an impression of verity
by means that necessarily aro often
In this direction the great advance
has been made. All tho dramatic
schools, and most of the private teach
ers, "are working in that spirit. They
employ careful methods where a con

"Feel Better Than for Five Years."
Mr. James B. Taylor, Roberts. Ind.,
"I am at the present time entirely
well. I can eat. anything I ever could
I took live bottles of Peruna, and feel
better now than I have for five yeais.
I have doctored with other doctors off
and on for fifteen years, so I can rec
ommend your medicine very highly for"
stomach troubles. I take great plea.f
urc in thanking you for your free ad
vice and Peruna." James B. Taylor.
"I Enjoy My Meals as I Used to."
Mr. J. W. Prltchard, Wolf Lake, Ind.,
"I nin pleased to say that I have been
cured of catarrh of the stomach by Pe
runa. I could hardly cat anything that
agreed with mo. Before I would get
half through my meal my .stomach
would fill with gas causing me much
distress and unpleasant feelings for an
hour or two after each meal. But,
thanks to your Peruna, I am now com
pletely cured, nnd can eat anything I
want io without any of the distressing
symptoms. I can now enjoy my meals
as I used to do, and It is due to Dr.
Hartman and his wonderful medicine,
"It has been one year since I was
cured, and I am all O. K. yet. so I know"
I im cured." J. W. Prltchard.
Dvpepsla Is a very common phase of
Minimer catarrh. A remedy that will
cure catarrh of one location will cure It
anywhere. Peruna cures catarrh wher
ever located. That it is a prompt and
permanent euro for catarrh of tho
stomach the above letters testify.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your caso nnd he will
be pleased to give you his valuable ad
