Young Woman Is Dragged Into
Eighteenth Street Alley
Bites Her Assailant.
Sergeant Russell's Raiders
Go After the Mickey -Promoter
HAD LONG FIGHT IN DARK
Gocd, sound teeth saved Miss
Sarah Epstein, aged 22 years, of 3704
North Sixteenth street, from a das
tardly assault by a powerful negro
last night. She bit the hand which
he had clamped over her mouth as a
gag and screamed for help. Her as
sailant, who had dragged her into a
dark alley, fled.
Miss Epstein was on her way to
a Jewish women's meeting at the
home of Mrs. Anna Cohn, 1116 North
Eighteenth street. As she was walk
ing over Eighteenth street the negro
leaped from the alley between Nich
olas and Izard streets. Before she
could shout he had carried her 100
feet into the darkened area. She bit
his hand till the blood came. But her
assailant again gagged her with his
hand. She bit it again and when she
shouted the second time the colored
man ran down the alley and disap
peared. Miss Epstein was verging on hys
teria when, she told her story to the
police. She was unable to give a de
tailed description of the man who as
saulted her because the intense dark
ness of the scene prevented her from
getting a good look at him.
Have you met the mickey-promoter?
He is the present pet peeve of Ser
geant Russell and the police moral
squad, and the friend of all active
opponents of "bone-dry" measures,
lie is the most recent adornment of
the front door of those saloons which
would be oases after 8 p. m. He is
distinctly a new development of the
prohibition era and is the ogre whom
Omaha police fearfully anticipate,

Suppose you, a member of the
Thirsty Thirty Thousand should be
prompted by a certain cleaving of the
tongue to seek a drink and the eight
dismal bells have long since tolled,
the supposed closing of all booze
emporiums. Then you mar direct
your steps to your favorite life sav
ing station and speak gently to the
silent sentinel at the door. - Simul
taneously you slip him two-hits and
call your pet beer by name. He will
vanish with your quarter and return
with two amber bottles. These he will
slip to you from beneath his coat,
provided, of course, that no one is
around to see.
Simple arrangement, you say. Quite
right. But it is hard to catch the
wily man who is "promoting a micky."
The other night Sergeant Russell
and lid-lifting warriors found a sa

An opened beer bottle was on the
bar. The proprietor said he was just
about to drink the refreshment him

There is no law, either, which pre

employes. One or two "micky-pro-motcrs"
