A sensational arrest was made in

alias "Dickson," who claims Cort
land, N. Y., as his residence. De
Garls Is charged with carrying on
the white slave traffic and of having
procured two Scranton girls. The

whose sister DeGarls is alleged to
have Induced to leave Scranton and
go to Cortland. The man was clev
erly trapped. When he attempted
to lure away a second Williams
girl, she went to her mother with
the story and the two plotted to have
the man meet the girl at the rail
road station, presumably to go to

Inmate in Trenton Insane Asylum
Has Broken Ribs.
A dispatch from Trenton, N. J.,
says: Henry D. Crusen, the Trenton
letter carrier recently committed to
the State Hospital for the Insane,
after he had become deranged by
religion, is dead from half a dozen
broken ribs and other injuries. Ill
treatment at the hands of attending
nurses is intimated, and Coroner
Grove is investigating. Clinton J.
Swartz, Republican leader in Com
mon Council, has been chosen as
foreman of the Coroner's jury, and a
thorough inquiry is promised.
The outcome may be a complete
investigation of the institution. It
Is not believed that any scandal in
"high places" will be developed, but
there may be need of reform in the
nursing forces.
Dr. Henry A. Cotton, the new medl
cal director, recently issued an order
releasing from chains and other
ciose detention au violent pa
tients, and It is thought the nursing
force may be too small to cope with
the situation.
Dr. Cotton believes there can be
no hope of recovery for patients
who are kept tied up continually, or
even closely confined to their rooms
j He is a believer in the gentler,
calmer methods and insists .there
shall be no rough treatment.
It is reported, however, that many
of the attendants are not in sympa
thy with his refbrm ideas, and pos-
sibly these men and women may be
venting their spite on the patients
when he is not present. It is ad
mitted at the asylum that Crusen
was unruly and hard to manage.
Insurgent Leader Has Greytown Cut
Off by Land and Sea.
Blueflelds, Nicaragua, Nov. 10. Gen
eral Chamorro, commanding the rebel
forces, after destroying a number of
river boats and harbor tugs has evac
uated Greytown, which is now occu
pied by General Toledo with 2,000 gov
ernment troops.
Chamorro, however, with the gun
boat Ometepo and several converted
war vessels is maintaining an effec
tive blockade of the port.
The government forces are in a
dangerous position, as the only exit
from Greytown now Is by sea. Ze
laya's forces are bottled up after be
ing outmaneuvered by the rebels.
Chamorro Is expected to lay siege to
Greytown, and In that event General
Toledo will have to capitulate. Provi
sions in the town are scarce, and none
are allowed to enter by the rebel
Thanksgiving Givers Are Looking For
an Oven Fit to Bako It In.
New York, Nov. 0. President Wal
lerstein of the Pie Salesmen's union,
which has decided to present a mam
moth mince pie to President Taft on
Thanksgiving day, has appointed a
committee to select a suitable oven for
baking the pie. He explains that a big
pie, unlike a monster loaf, cannot be
baked In sections.
The union will make the pie two
days before Thanksgiving day, so that
it will be in prime shape to be eaten.
The largest pie ever previously baked
was built by a Brooklyn pie baking
concern. It was rectangular, about
three and a half feet wide and eight
reet long.
"We want a circular pie for the
president tlx feet in diameter," Mr.
Wallerstein Baid. "We want a home
made pie highly magnified. We don't
want a monstrosity."

Congress, here said that much of the
Italian, German, and French dried
sausage commonly used in hora d'oeu
vres Is made of the flesh of horses
and donkeys.
"There 1b no objection to this in
principle," he added, "but in some
cases the flesh of diseased horses,
docs, and eats Is so used, and more
strliigt measures should be takes
