them no chance.
"I ahould not mind giving up the place

Mra. Mary Metier la Koaad by Police
Helpless aad Ilaaary la aa
Bedridden and helpless from age and the
pangs of rheumatism, and surrounded by
accumulations of fillh, Willi only four dog
as companions. Mrs. Mary Metier was
found in a dilapidated cottage near Fifth
snd Spring Krecls Sunday morning by
Health Officer W'ooidridge. He had hoe a
sent oul on the rase by 'uptain Mostyn ot
the police force, who waa told of the desti
tute circumstance by neighbor ot th old
Too proud to go fo the county hospital,
Mrs. Milzer is yet In direst need of char
ity. She told the officer that , ah would
only be Ukeu to aome regular, hospital,
mentioning St. Joseph's as her preference,
aa she Is near there and supposedly of the
Catholic faith. No relatives of hare are
known to her neighbora or til? police, who
will attend to the case.
Four dogs sleeping on the same bed wlt"li
the woman were found by Officer Woold
ridge when he entered th little ehack
Sunday. She told him frankly that they
were a nuisance snd menace to her health,
et she had been unable io part with them,
her only friends.
Propoauig that thy he shot at Alice, th
officer waa met with linn orders that if the
bloody deed was to be done It should take
place right In Mrs. Metxer's presence, "so
site could see for sure that they were dead."
However, Officer Wooldruige. with an eye
for health, finally coaxed the canine out
doors and dispatched three of them with hi
revolver. The otner oue ot the tour ea
caped. This is only one of the numerous caaea
of destitution, airknraa and lack of sanita
tion that the police have to care for. Sun
day, the same day on which Mra, Metser
condition was discovered, several men were
probably saved from f reeimg to death, or
at least from cold and hunger, by being
taken to Jail and housed there.
