14 MICKEY'S NOBLE STEED IS 'DEAD' Only Horso Ever to Throw 'Broomstick Blister' Is Victim of a Truck. A CHRISTMAS TRAGEDY Hector, Like Humpty Dumpty, Can Never Bo Put To- gether Again. His name wns Francis Xavltr Michael p'Sulllvan Callahan,- - but everybody called him Mickey, to 'his supreme dla-Bt- because he was enormously proud ot his lone lLst of names and always referred to himself In full. He fet that lt'gavo him a. certain distinction, and raised him eoveral notches above every one else. Probably only his father and mother knew how old he was. He may have been 5, he may have been 6 and he may have\ been 7 or S. It doesn't make any difference nnyway, because after all Mickey war just one of those New Tork Irish kids, a kid with n snub nose and thousands of freckles and red hair and a faca almost unbelievably dirty, smudged all over as It was with molasses and Jam which he had licked off some bread, and samples ot, every- thing he had had for dinner, and streaked places where another boy had washed his face In dirty snow. But Mickey's- - aire and his dirty fce have nothing whatever to do with the story. If ho chose to go around looking like a little tramp that was his own business, and ha frequently said so. The point Is that Mickey waq a celebrated horseman. There wasn't a broomstick In .all of Yorkvlll.o that Mickey couldn't ride. He was a broomstick buster. Time after time Mickey has boen called upon to tame broomsticks that, have become so wild and unruly that their owners couldn't stay on them for even a minute. Many a little boyhai come dashing out of his flat house astride a noblo steed and It was a noble steed oven If sour grown ups did say It was a broomstick and has been thrown as soon as the broomstick got a little fresh air through Its nostrils. And then always came Mickey, with calm dignity, and Mickey would pat the broomstick and murmur magic words known only to the great horsemen, and then Mickey wouldfnount the- broomstick and center away and, behold! p. perfectly tame broomstick that even such a useless Incumbrance a a little girl might ride. Mail Many Admirers. Bo anybody, even the foolish grown- ups, can see that Mickey was a great personage, and ho had made admirers. And tho greatest of these, the one who followed Mickey through his equestrian career with tho greatest Interest, was Mickey's sister. Miss Kora Callahan, who was Just turning seven and was be- ginning lo have toclal ambitions to .such an extent that her face was clean per- haps two days a week. She did not re- fer to Mickey In a casual sort of way, like most sisters refer to brothers. Not at all. She recognized greatness when she saw It, and when she spoke of Mickey It was \mo bruddcr, who can ride llko a circus man.\ Now for a long time Mickey was sat- isfied with a broomstick for a horse, and then he had his father fashion with his knife a horse's head, which was at- tached to an end of .the broomstick and transformed the stick from a plug Into a most noble tert. But his ambition and Nora's ambition for them has been for one of .those gorgeous broomstick korses that the department stores have, the ones that have heads that look like real horses, all decorated wjth manes and ears and everything. And both Nora and Mickey knew that If they were good, or at least fairly good, and that If they minded their mother, at least some times, and prayed to Santa Claus properly, the handsome and noble steed would be Mickey's, and Mckey would then astound the world with his feats of horsemanship and Nora would achieve fame as his sister. So tbey did all those things. They were almost good, they almost minded their mother, but they prayed, to Santa Claus Incessantly. And o and behold) when they got out of bed yesterday morning there was a doll for Nora, and there was a handsome and a most won- drous steed for Mickey. The chest of Mickey expanded. He grew several Inches In height Immediately and felt so terrifically Important that as soon as he had had breakfast ho, decided ho would take his new horse for a canter along Fifty-seven- th street, on which thoroughfare he lived, near Second ave-'nu- e. So outside ho went, leading his steed, and along came Nora to sit on the stoop, even thdugh It was cold, and bask In the glory that would be Mickey's when the other boys' glimpsed the fine new horse that Santa Claus had brought. Monnts Nerr Steed. Mickey mounted his steed shouting and yelling, because the horse was new and didn't recognize at first the master hand on the rolns. It pawed the earth and snorted, although a cynic would have been willing to swear that the snorts came from the throat of Mickey and that It was) Mickey's feet that pawed and stamped so fiercely. Finally the new horso bolted; It was a terrlfyln? rpoment and Nora screamed with fear n$ Mickey, swaying from side to side, tried to quiet tho frightened steed and she shouted In pride when Mickey finally gained control of the animal and brought him alongside the stoop with a grand flourish and many \whoas.\' and \steady eld boys.\ and the like of that. Well, Mickey had a fine tlmo for an hour or so and soon there was an au- dience; practically all the boys In the neighborhood assembled to admire Mickey's horsemanship. And It was certainly some horsemanship that MIcKey showed them too. Never beforo In nil the history of YorkvIIle has a broom- stick cut so many capers or been ridden to well as yesterday morning. Up an.l down and across the street pranced the noblo steed, with Mickey's steadying hand at tho reins and his cars filled with the adulation of his sister and his friends. Finally ho decided to Phow them some extraordinary fine galloping, since ho had discovered that tho gallop was the gait In which his horse ex- celled. So Mickey and his steed, which he had named Hector, by the way, went tearing across tb street. Hut half way across Mickey's feet, or rather the feet of the horse, slipped on the snow nnd ADVERTISEMENTS.

' down went Hector and Mickey. For tho first tlmo In his life MicKey nno dmh thrown, and he did not know what to mako of It. He felt that he was dis- graced, and all he could do was to stand there and look reproachfully at Hector, who lay prostrate. And Just at tliif llm nrnhnYilv (hft flnlv trUCk that had been through Fifty-sevent- h street' ail aay lumeu in ui nigu iicu Second avenue. Warned by the cries of his sister, Mickey managed to dodge tho wheels, but he could not save Hector. The truck ran over him and went on toward Third avenue. Hector Was Dend. Well, Hector was dead. Tb'r no doubt cf thJ. ?A noole' steed, the or' C.:S In tho world that Mickey had waited for Christmas and which had cost far more than his father could- - af- ford, was dead. He was broken In three pieces and his handsome head had been mashed into the Bnow and ground on the pavement, and It was ruined. Trie mane was torn off, one of the eyes was gone and both ears torn off, Hec- tor would nover be a horse any more; never again w.ould Mickey mount him and prance and cavort up arid down Flfty-sevent- h street. There was no more Hector; merely the ruins of a once noblo steed. Mickey didn't know what to do. He just stood there, staring at the catas- trophe, and then he began to cry, and Nora came running across this street with her doll, and she began to cry too. And Mickey picked up a piece of Hector and Nora picked up a piece and they tried to put tho horse together again, but Hector was like Humpty Dumpty he couldn't be put together again. And so they sat down on the curb. Tight In the snow, which ( they didn't notlco at all, and Nora held a plcco of .Hector, and so did Mickey, and they Just sat there and cried, because Hoctor was broken and Mickey couldn't ride him any more. For a long time they sat there, and people passed them, and all the people saw was two' kids, sitting on the curbing and crying over a stick that had baen broken, crying over nothing but a broom- stick and a piece of wood cut nnd painted to resemble tho head of a horse. 80 MILLION POUNDS 0F SUGAR IN WEEK Despite Receipts From Cuba Grocery Stocks Are Scarce. Eastern refiners are rushing to mar- ket the sugar they have been ablo to ac- quire In Cuba, as Is shown by tho re- ceipt In Atlantic ports of approximately 80,000,000 pounds during tho past week. This represents a quantity almost four times as great as received during the previous week and moro than three times that received for the corresponding week a year ago. The Cuban market Is beginning to show a slight decline on raw sugar quo- tations. Early December sugar, uch as the cargo brought here early In the week on tho steamer Matanias, was purchased at the rate of about 14 cents n pound, while sugar for late December clearance from Cuba was quoted at 124 rents. A limited quantity. January deliver', has been quoted to Jobbers at 10H cents. Speculators appear to be holding off ex- pecting a further break In the price. Despite the largo receipts of raw su- gar, which can bo refined and put cn tho market In the course of a few days, housewives are finding It Increasingly difficult to purchaso granulated sugar ot nny kind at their grocery storos, and tho price on what they are able to obtain ranges from 23 to 27 cents a ipound. This usually Is sold under the name of Java, Brazilian or vaguely designated a? \im- ported.\ although o one appears to know where from. A dlsputo\ between the Czatrlkow-niond-a Sugar Company of 112 Wall etreet,. which Imported the cargo on board the Matanzas. and the refining companies over the cost of handling It for tho market temporarily has tied up the largest single shipment to be received In this city. Arthur Williams, Federal Food Administrator, looks to nn early adjustment of tho difficulty for a partial relief of the present shortage. GOVERNMENT FLOUR ON SALE IN STORES Pure Wheat Product Offered for Domestic Use. Government pure wheat flour In small packages for domestic use has been placed on salo In hundreds ot grocery stores throughout the country, according to an announcement made yesterday by Director Julius H. Barnes of the United States Grain Corporation. This flour la being sold at a moderate price and bears tho brand of tho Grain Corporation. Watson S. Moore, second of the Grain Corporation, said mere Is every Indication that the flour will receive a wide distribution due to tho convenient size of the packages, its uni- formly high grade and moderate .price. He points out that It Is In no sense a war substitute flour, but Is part of tho wheat grown under Government guar- antee. He said ; \Stocks of wheat now In tho hinds of the producer apparently are In oxcess of last year. The final statement on crops for this year Issued by the Department of Agriculture raised Its previous esti- mates on wheat by 22,000,000 bushela, making tho total 9.40,000,000, or the sec- ond largest on record for thi United States. Flour stocks are approximately 50 per cent. larger than 'they were a year ago. It Is not the purpose of tho Government to press this flour In locali- ties where similar flour Is being offered at approximately Government prices.\ HILARIOUS HUSBAND BREAKS WIFE'S LEG Demon Rum Blamed for Mis- hap at Christmas Party. When'Frank Strepsky, a clerk' of 114 Third street, was arraigned before Mag- istrate Koentg In the Essex Market court yesterday an a charge of felonious assault ho stoutly maintained that he could remember but little concerning the details of the party at 'his home on Christmas evo and that he was totally at a loss1 to account for tho presence of his young wife, Annlo, In BellovUo. Hospital with a brokon left leg. Patrolman Bohans of the Fifth 'street station told tho court that whiskey was served at the function In tho Strepsky home and that the clerk In a moment of hilarity had setezd his wife's leg, placed It over Jils knee and exerted enoueh Dressure to snap the bone. I Strepsky shook his head doubtfully when the policeman nau nnlsped. \There were a couple of gallons of whiskey at tho party all right,\ he ad- mitted. \Some of It must have gone to my head and that's all I can remember.\ He was held In (2,500 ball for exam- ination natal Toter Stricken on Trnln. Frederick Telbold of 1501 Edgewater road. Tho Bronx, had a stroke of apo- plexy1 on a Boston and Westchester Railroad train near trie Casenovn sta- tion In The Bronx yesterday and was taken lo the Lincoln Hospital by Dr. Weiss. As hl.i clothing was being re- moved a revolver fell from his pocket and one of tho cartrldgeswas exploded, tho bullet Whizzing by a nurse. A search of Tclb'old's pockets failed to dlscloso a pistol permit and he was taken a prisoner to the Fordham Hospital, charged with violating the Sullivan law. 1 I REFORMATORY GIRL ATTACKS KEEPERS Vicious Fight Follows Al-ledg- Attempt to Incito a Rebellion. INQUIRY CAUSES UNREST Bedford Investigation Causes Spirit of Insubordination to Spread. Anna Nejelsky, 21, a prisoner In the State Reformatory for Women at Bed- ford, N. V., spent Christmas In .solitary confinement In a punishment cell as a result of tho rebellion which, It is charged, she attempted to start among other Inmates there on Christmas Eve. Tho girl Is alleged to have attacked Miss Julia Mlnoguo, the' disciplinary 'officer, and Jamos Burke, a guard, and to have bitten them' so .severely that both were under the caro of n physician yesterday. In view of the Investigations Into accu- sations of cruelty on the part of the of- ficials of tho Reformatory, the affair caused great excitement amohg the In- mates of .the institution. There was a Christmas Ete celebra- tion at one of the cottages and the fun srew uproarious, so the officials declare. Anna, they assert, became unruly and called upon the other girls to disobey' all orders. The festivities came to nn ab- rupt termination and the women, were \ordered to their rooms. All obeyed save Anna. Then, according to tho guards, Bhe began an abusive harranguc. Miss Mlnogue and Burke were sent for and attempted to reason with the girl, but she refused to listen or to retlro to her room and was ordered to tho disciplinary building. \You have run us Just about long enough,\ screamed Anna. \From now on us Inmates are going to have some- thing to say about running this place.\ Burke, who had stepped up behind the excited girl, seized her, nnd she began lighting, kicking and biting savagely at both the guard and Miss Mlnogue, who sought to aid him. After n struggle Anna's arms were pinioned to her side and It appeared that she had been over- powered. Suddenly her head went for- ward and her teeth closed upon one of Burke's fingers., Tho guard shrieked with pain nnd Miss Mlnogue forced her to release him with difficulty. As Burke stepped backard Anna leaped for iMIfs Mlnogue and caught her hand In her teeth, biting savagely. The alarm had bum given and at this Juncture a force of guards arrived, Anna was \overpow- ered and locked In a cell, She was still defiant. As Burke was locking tho cell door she seized a bucket ot wnter, which wa.i inside, and deluded him with the conents. Superintendent Helen Cobb called who cauterized and dressed tho wounds of the couple. Since the begin- ning of tho present Investigation Into rvnishments and discipline at the re- formatory the officials say that the trou- blesome Inmates ,are causing them more concern than over before. KILLS SELF ON DATE OF HUSBAND'S DEATH Widow, Worth $200,000, In- hales Gas in Hotel Room. Leopold Sollngor, a retired linen Im- porter, died four years ago on Christmas eve, and each year since then the holi- day season brings sad memories to Mrs. Birdie Sollnger, aged 61, his widow. She dined with friends on the anniversary and appeared In her usual spirits when she left them and Went to her apart- ments on the seventh floor In tho Hotel Ashton, 1312 Madison avenue, about 9:20 o'clock. Early Christmas morning' the odor ot gas was traced to her rooms. Gerard G. Remus, the hotel auditor, opened tho door and found Mrs. Sollnger dead upon her bed with a gas tube In her mouth. She had apparently been looking over some private papers before turning on the gas. On the table beside her was a newspaper clipping which told of her husband's death. Dr. Bingham re- sponded to an ambulance call to Flower Hospital, but could do nothing. Mrs. Sollnger leaves an estate esti- mated at 200,000. A will Is said to have been, among tho papers found by the police In her room. Mrs. Mayme Feder, Mrs. Sollnger's sister and only living relative', who Uvea In the Hotel Wellington, Is named as executrix, It Is bellQved. SWEPT IN AIR BOAT TO BRINK OF NIAGARA Flier Near to Death When Forced to River. A narrow escape from plunging over Niagara Falls In a flying boat was re- lated In a letter received yesterday at' the American Flying Club by Major Sydney E. Parker. Major Parker, who with Capt. Talbot G. Wilcox has been flying about northern New Tori: and sections of Canada In a Curtlss Seagull, retuined to the city a few days ago while his partner, ac- cording to the letter, remained to give an exhibition flight at Niagara Falls. He took off from tho Niagara River and was nearlng tho falls when his engine began to miss. He was compelled to land In tho swiftly running river and worked feverishly to start the motor be- fore the ship reached the edge of the falls. The motor remained stubborn, how- ever, and had not tho ship grounded on the edge of Goat Island It would have gone over the falls. The Incident recalled the adventure of a pilot during tho recent flight, who In taking off at Green River ran over a precipice before he had reached flying Bpeed. A current of air bore him up until his plane was running fast enough to tako care of Itself. STORM CUTS STREET CLEANERS' HOLIDAY 3,000 Respond to Call Clear Away Snow. to The snow storm Christmas Eve cheated 3.000 street cleaners but of half tho CTiHiu leias holiday they had been promised.

Tho determination of Edward I. Governor-ele- ct of New Jersey, 'to ask the Legislature of his State to pass a law legalizing tho sale of wine and beer and otherwise to attack the Eighteenth Amendment to tho Federal Constitution by appealing to the Su- premo Court does not worry the Jersey prohibitionists at all. They eay that Mr. Edwards Is bluffing; that he is merely trying to mane good his cam- paign promises, anil that New Jersey has abotft as much chance of going wet as Mr, Edwards has of getting the Su- preme Court to nullify tho national bone dt,v laws. \We think It's Just a bluff.\ said G. Howland Monroe', counsel for the New Jersey' Anti-Saloo- n League, yesterday. \Mr. Edwards Is simply attempting to make good somo of tho rash statements he made during his campaign. It Is ex- tremely doubtful whether Mr. Edwards, n Democrat, will have the support of our Republican Legislature In his fight on the constitutionality of the dry law. \If such a fight Is started It will bo up to tho Government to defend it Just as It has In other cases. The Anti-Salo- League will take no part In he fight except that our National counsel, .Wayne B. Wheeler. I presume, will be permitted to file a brief as ho has done in similar attacks. We are hoping that the Supreme Court will pass upon theso attacks soon. It may be that such de- cision will be handed down before Mr. Edwards starts his proposed action. We don't regard his bluff as at all serious, except that It shows that the Governor-ele- ct and his followers arc ready to go the limit to nullify the law of the land.\ Mr. Edwards made known his pro posal to fight prohibition while address- ing a gathering of Democratic Assem- blymen and Senators on Tuesday night in Newark. It Is believed that his fight will have a representative and not a merely party advocacy. AIR MAIL SERVICE FINDS CHEAPER FUEL \Alcogas\ Passes Six Weeks Test With Good Results. A fuel more economical than gasolene and lesi hard on the motor has been tested successfully In the air mall ser vice, according to an announcement made yesterday by Otto rraeger, Second Assistant Postmaster-Genera- l in charge of the air mall. Tho tests, which were made on the Washington-Ne- w Tork route between August 4 and September 19, Indicate a saving of 3.3 gallons or ruel in rnvor of the new synthetic fuel It Is known commercially as aloogas and Is com- posed of thirty-eig- parts ot alcohol. nineteen parts benzol, four parts toluol, thirty parts gasolene and seven and one- - half parts ether. The remaining one and one-ha- lf part Is not explained. Mall .plane No. 35, a Curtlss. machine equipped with a high compression motor. was the machine on which tne new fuel was tested. A check plane of similar model flew the opposllto way, during most of the trips made, using high test aviation gasolene. The alcogas ship made thlrty-on- o flights and the gasolene shli) nineteen. Liberty twelve motors were UBcd on both planes, but the alco- gas ship was high compression stylo and tho other low. A saving In lubricating oil also wns Indicated by the tests. The average for the new fuel was 4.4 quarts an hour as against 4.98 quarts an hour with gaso lene. The oil saving Is thought to be due to greater thermal efficiency dis- played by alcohol fuel as against gaso- lene. After 125 hours In the air tho motor-orrth- e alcogas machine was torn down and found to be in fine condition, with less carbon deposited than In tho motor using gasolene. At 1,475 revolu- tions a minute twenty-fou- r gallons of gasolene were consumed an hour, while at tho same speed but 20.1 gallons of alcogas wcro consumed. TWO AXE DEAD BY OAS. Another Victim.
