WONT PICK UP ANOTHER BABY.
What Happened to a Stranger Who
, % Was Polite to a Mother in a
New York World.
He was a heavy swell from London,
■lopping at the St. Denis Hotel, and
he was standing Wednesday at the
corner of Fourteenth street and i iftli
avenue, waiting for the parade, when
he saw a well-dressed woman with a
baby helplessly struggling in the
douse crowd that packed the sidewalk.
Politely lifting his hat, the diguilied
“Madame,thatchild will be crushed.
Where do you want to go?”
“Oh, sir,” said the perspiring mother
with an appealing look, “I am trying
to get into Sixth avenue.”
“All right, I will help you, ns I
wnnt to get to the Elevated Station,”
was the reply. “Let me take the
The child was transferred to the
arms of the sturdy English dude, who
pushed his way through the crowd,
and in a few minutes had reached the
middle of the avenue. Looking around
for the mother, she was nowhere to
be seen, and the Englishman started
for the place where lie had left her.
He was stopped by a policeman, who
refused to let him pass, and said he
would have to “go the other way.”
“Will you please take the baby,
then ; its mother is lost ?”
"Now, young feller, you can’t give
me any story like that,” was the
Just at this moment the infant set
up a loud howl, its tears running down
the neck of its protector ns it hung
about his shoulders, and the crowd at
the same time awoke to an apprecia
tion of the scene. There were cries
of “Hi Jimmie, get onto his jags wid
do kid!” “Why dontt he marry the
girl?” and “It doesn’t look like its
daddv!” A thousand people by this
time were laughing at the-Englishman.
who stood helpless and uncomfortable
in the middle ot the street, looking
about as if for some place to throw
the child, when a ooliceman asked
him to give an account of himself and
how he came into possession of the
equalling infant. Finally the mother
struggled to the scene, grabbed the
child, and, stopping for a moment to
accuse her new acquaintance of trying
to steal it, rushed off.
A DISASTROUS WRECK.
Two Freight Trains Collide, Killing
two and Wounding Others.
Bridgeport, Conn , May 2S — A
special freight train from this city col
lided with the regular Albany freight,
bound south on the Housatonic rail
road, about 4:30 o'clock this morning,
one mile from Bull station, causing a
disastrous wreck. Both trains came
together with a terrible crash,wrcckin t
the engines into a shapeless mass,
telescoping two freight cars on the up
train, smashing three cars of the down
train and detailing nine other cars.
Engineer William B. Look, of Great
Barrington, Mass., who had charge ot
the engine of the up train, was crushed
to death- His remains were found
buried in the coal of his tender.
Charles Olds, a brakeman on the
same train, was terribly crushed, and
died in a few moments after the collis
John Lamonte, of WestStockbridge,
a brakeman, jumped as the trains came
together. His left ankle was crushed
and one of his ribs was fractured.
James McDermott, the engineer of
the down train, jumped just before the
collision. His shoulder was dislocated
and he was otherwise bruised.
The two latter will recover. The
cause of the accident was due to diso
bedience of orders.
Vienna, May 2G.—A coufl-igra
tion in the town of Podhajce, Galicia,
has destroyed GOO houses, a church and
a synagogue, anu caused the loss ot
many lives. Twelve corpses have
been extricated from the ruins.
