helped this woman throw the prose
cutrix out, hence the arrest. '
At the hearing- yesterday afternoon it
developed that the woman in the case
was not Mrs. Norris, as she was sick
in bed at the time, so the case against
her was discharged. Norris was held

hearing Norris had Mr. and Mrs. Nich
ols arrested, on the charge of breaking

Billy, the Goat.
William Null, of Meridian street, Is
the owner of a splendid specimen of a
goat, of which he Is Justly proud. This
Is no wonder, when It Is remembered
that It Is the same goat thnt was so
prominent In the newsboys' parade and
picnic that was held at Nay Aug park
a few weeks ago. Tho goat afforded
much amusement at the time on ac
count of his butting proclivities nnd
the fnntustlc manner in which the boys
had arrayed him.
The goat must hnvo been noticed
particularly by some one, for a few
dnys after the picnic he was stolen from
the barn in the rear of Null's home.
A search warrant was Issued to Con
stable John Davis, who found the long
lost "billy" In the possession of a
gentleman on Price street, who said he
bought the goat of John Graham, of
Hennessy's court, who brought it to his
home and offered to sell it for fifty
cents, on account of the strike, he
(Graham) claiming to bo the lawful
owner of tho nforesald goat.
Constable Davis arrested young Gra
ham, but tho owner of the goat failed
to appear ns prosecutor, he being sat
isfied to have the goat In its own barn
A Boast of Chicken.
Sunday night, Hugh Smith, an em
ploye of John Eenore & Sons, the lum

he heard voices on the other. Cautious
ly climbing the pile he saw a number
of boys, who had a fowl nicely dressed
and ready for roasting. They hud a
pan and also a nice little Are.
Hugh knew that Thomas Loney, of
Soutli Seventh street, had missed chick
ens recently, and ho went to call him.
When they returned the boys had evi

appeared. It is said the boys are
known and warrants are likely to bo
issued for their arrest.
