Faithful Dog Avenges a Policeman
NEW YORK. Patrolman Lawrenqo
Cummins of the East Ono Hundred
and Fourth street police station , on
whoso post the car barn gang has its
headquarters , was beaten savagely by
members of that band and was in the
hospital for several weeks.
The first request Cummins made to
Capt. Corcoran when ho reported
again for duty was to bo assigned to
his old post. Ho said ho wanted to
show the toughs that ho was not
afraid of them and that they could
not drive n policeman from his place
of duty. Capt. Corcoran took the
came view and sent Cummins back.
From the moment ho resumed his
work the gang annoyed Cummins , but
It was not until the other night that
the roughs got a chance to "do him
up" again. Ho found about a dozen
of them on the street Insulting wom
en who passed.
"Move on , " commanded Cummins.
Cut a truck driver , 19 years old , hurled
Insults at the policeman. Cummins
arrested him. The rest of the gang
disappeared. Cummins started for
the police station with his prisoner ,
but as they went along there was a
call f rein a roof. The prisoner broke
from Cummins and ran hit oa house.
The gang had gone to a roof , torn
away the chimnow and waited for the
policeman and his prisoner. When
the signal was given and the prisoner
had fled from the firing 7.0110 his
friends hurled the chimney bricks
down nt Cummins. After three had
struck him on the head ho fell un
conscious. Men who saw the attack
ran to the station. Scrgt. Hlgglns and
eight bluccoats raced to the rescue of
Twice a week a Dadmatln dog , Bes

2G on One Hundred and Fourteenth
street , visits the East Ono Hundred
and Fourth street station , nnd has a
supper at the expense of John Rltter.
That night she was there and she
went with the rescue squad.
When the men entered the house
from which the bricks had been hurled
on Cummins the dog went with them.
But while the sergeant nnd his men
went to the roof Bessie stopped at the
Back 'in a dark corner of the tene
ment hallway she had caught sight ot
a man , nnd , Instead of going further ,
she leaped for him. She got a good
on his trousers and ho could not beat
her off. Five minutes afterward the
policemen on their way back to the
street after a fruitless search , heard
a scuffle. They found Bessie still
holding on to the man. Ho was the
Law Can't Suppress Babies' Howls
. Anxiously awaiting
the outcome of the Important case ,
of Tucker against Coch , tried in the
Flatbush court , Brooklyn , Flatbush
mothers learned with great relief that
they -would not bo forced to the ex
pense of equipping their teething ba
bies with Maxim silencers , Coch lost
and the babies of. Flatbush were tri
Passing , Solomon-like , on the great
Issue , Magistrate Naumer ruled that
\ even a Flatbush Infant must have
teeth to go through the world with.
Should ono be expected to worry
through life with gums Innocent of
mplaro and Incisors , missing the Joys
of sinking them into sirloin at 30
cents a pound ? To bo sure not Was
Mr. Coch a toothless baby ? Of course
ho wasn't. Didn't ho cry when the
eoothlng syrup failed to soothe ? He
did. Well , then , why should the
Tucker baby be denied that world-
old privilege of Infancy ? Mr. Coch
could adduce nothing to overthrow
So It was ruled by the learned court
that It was - wellwithin the old Ro
man , the English common , the re
vised or unrovlsod statutes , the city
ordinances , Mngna Charta , or even
the plain or common variety of law
for any Flatbush baby to howl and
yowl and rip up the palpitating si
lence of the Flatbush night and turn
it inside out while his "toofens" are
pushing themselves out as a protest
against a milk diet. This applies to
both boy and girl babies not only In
Flatbush , but all over Brooklyn.
Sumner Tucker and Arnold Coch
live in adjoining cottages , or villas ,
as they obtain in Flatbush , in Mar-
tense street. All was well between
them until the Tucker baby arrived.
They had borrowed and loaned lawn
mowers , exchanged1 garden seeds and
talked radish , lettuce and other gar
den crops. But with the coming of
the Tucker heir a gulf opened.
Like most Infants of its age , the
Tucker ono is busily engaged In
bringing In teeth. Now , Mr" Coch has
no objection to teeth. He owns a lot
himself. But the day and night vocal
demonstrations with which the Tuck
er baby accompanied their efforts to
push through made Coch peevish. Ho
suggested a motor boat muffler or
something like that to Mr. Tucker
and the latter was Irritated. Ho had
his neighbor summoned to court , say
ing ho had abused him.
Mississippi Catfish Are Thirsty
ST. LOUIS. It Is only within the
memory of the oldest of river men
that the rivers forming the great Mis
sissippi system have been so low in
the summer as they have this year.
The old-timers say the low stages this
year can bo compared only with those
of 18G4 , when the catfish had to climb
out into the fields to moisten their
parched throats with the dew.
North of St. Louis steamboat traffic
IB almost at a standstill on account of
the low water in the Upper Mississip
pi. The Diamond Jo line has been
forced to take off its through boats to
St. Paul and has great difficulty In get
ting its local packets through to Bur
lington , la. Many excursion boats
nre tied up. Several of the boats have
been damaged in an effort to navigate.
But while the steamboat interests
are suffering the pearl button fac
torles and the pearl hunters are reap
ing a harvest. Hundreds of men , wom
en nnd children can be seen along
the water front of every town hunting
clams. The shells are sold to th.o but
ton factories after being searched for
yearals. Many flno pearls have been
found. One found by a Dubuque man
was sold for $400.
If It were not for the water that
comes out of the Missouri , steamboat
traffic would bo suspended between
hero and Cairo. While the Missouri
has not risen this year to within 15
feet of the flood stage , It has main
tained a steady flow of water , enough
to keep the steamboats going on the
Mississippi and enough for the boats
runlnng on that stream. Still , unless
there are rains soon in the north the
Missouri is likely to go very low this
fall , although not ns low as It has
been in some years. It has been many
years since the Missouri hao fallen be
low the zero stage. It is now eight
feet above that stage , which Is about
the usual flow In the fall.
King Hog Makes Lucky Farmer Glad
CITY. The greatest moneymaker
eymaker on the farm during the
past year has been the hog. The
fanner with a carload of hogs was
assured of an automobile , a trip to
Europe , or more farm land. Never
In modern history have hogs been
sold .it such high prices , on a strictly
gold basts , of course , as during the
past several months.
Early In the present year there
were reports of n "hog shortago' from
many hog-raising districts. And mar
ket receipts bore out the reports.
From January 1 , 1910 , to July 1 , 1910 ,
receipts at the five leading western
markets Chicago , KCUDSOS City , Oma
ha , St. Louis and St. Joseph were , In
round numbers , two nnd one-fourth
million head less than during 'tho cor
responding six months of 1909. Ar
rivals at the five big points In the
first half of 1909 numbered 9,280,000.
In the first half of 1910 receipts al
the previously mentioned markets
were 2,990,000. In other words , a
growing population was fed on 75 per
cent , of the hogs that were consumed
in the first six months of 1909. The
direct effect of the decrease In hog
receipts , while the population was un
questionably Increasing , was a sharp
advance in market value of swine.
At the Kansas City stockyards the
average cost of hogs for the first six
months of 1909 was $ G.G4 per hun
dredweight In the first half of 1910
the average cost at the same markel
was $9.31 , showing a gain of $2.07 per
hundredweight , or about 40 per cent
At all the other markets the advance
In prices was practically equal to that
at Kansas City.

I DELIGHTFUL DRINKS

The syllabub Is the aristocrat of the
dairy , and creates delight by wedding
the Julco of the grape to the Julco ot
The genuine way to make a syllabub
Is to put four ounces of sugar , the rind
of half a lemon , a pint of sweet wine ,
half a pint of sherry , and a grated nut
meg In a bowl and stir until the sugar
IB dissolved. Then take It to the cow
house at milking time , place It under
the cow and milk Into it until the milk
froths high In the bowl.
The addition of n spoonful of cream
In each glass Is an improvement. In
country districts cider is often used In
stead of wine , but with the cider n
dash of brandy Is an improvement.
Here is another recipe from an old-
fashioned book : Take two large cups
of cream and ono of white wine. Grate
the rind of a lemon Into it , add the
whites of three eggs , and nwccton to
taste. Whisk It aud take oft the frotli
as It rises and put it into glasses.
This is delicious in its way , but the
true syllabub should come straight
from the dairy to the supper table , and
after a warm day there is no more ad
mirable evening restorative.
A "birthday syllabub" is luxurious.
Take a pint of port and one of sherry ,
mix them with half a pint of brandy
and a grated nutmeg , squeeze and
strain the Julco of two lemons into a
largo bowl over half a pound of loaf
sugar. Stir In the wine and brandy ,
and then away to the dairy with it ,
and call upon the cow for two quarts
of Its richest milk.
. Even thus diluted it In a fairly
heady mixture , and it Is perhaps a
merciful dispensation that birthdays
such as this come but once a year.
A simple syllabub for young people
may bo made by whisking a pint of
cream and the whites of three eggs to
gether , and adding the julco of a
lemon and a little lemon flavoring. Put
just a little wine in each glass and add
the whip. It is not real syllabub , but
It is a pleasant addition to the refresh
ments at a young people's party.JQ \ \ -

When the young housekeeper is buyIng -
Ing a rolling pin slio might as well
buy a pretty one as an ugly one , espe
cially as there is no difference In the
price. Some wooden pins are as high
ly polished as a' fine piece of furni
ture and china rolling pins may bo
either perfectly white or of delft blue
and white. In selecting a rolling pin ,
however , a thought must be given to
cleanliness. A wooden pin may not bo
as pretty as a china one , but if the
wooden handle of the china ono does
not fit closely Into the roller the dough
will get inside and there is no way to
got it out. So , however pretty the
china roller , see that the wooden han
dle fits snugly. There are glass pirn )
which many housekeepers prefer to
either china or the wooden.
New Prune Dish.
A delicious dish is made of the des
pised prune by following these direc
tions : Stew some prunes until soft
with sugar and lemon , remove the
stones and put the prunes in a greased
pudding dish adding a few of the ker
nels. Make a bnttcr with one cup
ful of flour , one tablespoonful of sugar ,
half teaspoonful baking powder , ono
well-beaten egg and one cupful of
milk. Mix well till smooth , then pour
over the prunes , cover with buttered
paper and steam gently for one hour.
Make a ctistard with five eggs ( the
yolks nnd whites whisked separately ) ,
ono cupful of cream , four heaping
tablespoonsful of sugar and one tablespoonful -
spoonful of bread or cake crumbs ;
add four ounces of cherries cut in
small pieces and a pinch of salt ; beat
for ten minutes. Fill a buttered mold
with this mixture ; cover with but
tered paper , stonm for an hour and a
half , and serve with strawberry sauce.
Mushrooms en Ragout.
Put a little stock in the dialing dish ,
and when hot add n little vinegar ,
chopped parsley , chopped green onion ,
salt and pepper ; when scalding hot ,
put in the mushrooms nicely cleaned ,
and when done , thicken with the yolka
of ono or more eggs and servo hot.
