Morris Evans, of Taylor, Had His Arm Amputated - Other AccidentsPersonals. combined thus far. The grand drill ty lb young ladies in suits with swords will be worth the 25 cents admission alone. But when we add to this the various other fine features as marches drills, singing of soldier songs and scenes of soldier life, not anyone can afford to" miss the treat. The fact that Captain David W. Davis has charge, assisted on the piano by Miss Alvina Jonesi Insures a most splendid success as an entertainment. Morris Evans, a 14 - year - old boy, whose home is In Taylor, was taken to the West Side hospital yesterday, Buffering from an - injury to his right arm. After an examination. It was found necessary to amputate the arm Just below the elbow. The accident by which the boy's arm was injured happened In the Taylor mine. His arm was caujrht under a car. and before he could help himself, two wheels had passed over the arm, crushing n jbadly. The boy's mother, is a widow and the heroic little sufferer is worrying more about her than about his own serious loss. STOLE BRASS AND WAS CAUGHT. Patrolmen Morgan and Marker saw a man acting suspiciously in the Central railroad yard last evening, and decided to question him. The man saw the officers approaching and hastily dropped some bundles which he Was carrying. One of the officers questioned the suspect, while the other opened the bundles and found that they contained several brass Journals. No satisfactory explanation could be obtained from the suspicious character, who gave his name as Andrew Stoltz. and he was taken to the Jackson street station house. He will be given a hearing this afternoon. FINED FOR FIGHTING. In police court yesterday, Michael, Joseph and Martin Cook were each fined IIS for fighting.

At Robinson avenue the boys boarded a wagon and everything went well until they reached the corner of Ninth avenue, when young O'Connor fell from the wagon and landed right In front of another vehicle. Before the driver of the latter could stop his horses, the wagon had passed over young O'Connor. His head and face were bruised and it is feared one of his legs is seriously injured. The little fellow was taken to his home by Merchant David Evans, of South Main avenue. Jerome Mullarkey, the three - year - old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. J.

The concert recently given at Haw - ley by talent from this side, was a very flattering success. The opera house at that place was crowded to the doors and many complimentary remarks were heard about the excellence of the entertainment. There were many friends present this afternoon at the funeral of the late Uriths Ellis, which took place at 2:30 o'clock from the rfome of James Lewis of North Decker court. Short services were held at the house and interment was made in Washburn street cemetery. Two dogs entered the hennery of G. B.

The dogs also killed several rabbits belonging to Robert and Rolland Phillips, of South Hyde Park avenue.

Fifty - six horses are re quired daily to deliver the enormous amount of goods that leave theirastore on North Mam avenue. PERSONAL MENTION.

West Scranton Bu - slnesa Directory. WEALTHY PEOPLE AS WELL AS poor, buy their clothes and shoes at misfits. High grade clothing always on band. "In all my dally walks and rides for miles here and in the streets of Tokio," says a traveler, "I never heard an offensive word applied to me, nor saw an unfriendly face. Nor in the quieter streets did I ever see what is so common in China, women and children darting in and bolting the doors on the approach of a foreigner. Even the dogs here are friendly" and never bark at you." Philadelphia, May 23. Although outweighed from ten to twelve pounds, Abe Attell. of California, last night defeated Battling Nelson, of Chicago, by a wide margin In a six - round bout at the National A. C. It was a fast, scientific boxer against a rugged, rush ing fighter, and science won over brute strength and courage. In the first three rounds, Attell made Nelson look like the proverbial deuce. He not only landed both hands on the Dane almost at will and evaded Nelson's rushes, but makred Battling up by drawing blood from latter's ear, mouth and from a cut over his right eye. In the fourth round Nelson did his best work. Then he got Attell at Just the proper range and the way he hammered Abe with right and left swings caused the Californian to hang on for dear life. In the last two rounds, while Attell outpointed Nelson, he was more careful and permitted Battling to set the pace. The crowd went wild with delight over Atteli's showing. At the finish, however. Nelson was almost as strong as at the start, while Abe was tiring fast, partly from Nelson's blows and partly from his own fast work in the early rounds. Until within a few minutes of the time when the men entered the ring, it was not known who Nelson's opponent would be. Yesterday morning Attell appeared at the Hotel Scott and weighed in with his clothes on, without i lowering the beam, which was set at ' 1 3t"l nimHo ...I i . l .1 1 . , . . . ..... i'v'm.iuj. urii liien ueiiiaiiura mat Nelson should also weigh in. This Nelson, whose usual fighting weight is 130 pounds, refused to do. Attell then declared the match off. and "Kid" Herman, of Chicago, was substituted. While the crowd, which only about two - thirds filled the hail at prices of from $1 to $5. was witnessing the preliminaries, Nelson and Attell and their managers met in the dressing - room. Attell was willing to meet Nelson, and after a great deal of haggling between the managers, Nelson ended discussion by remarking: "Put Attell or any one else on. They all look alike to me." That settled It, and Attell' prepared for the ring. It was announced that Nelson would meet "Kid" Sullivan at Baltimore on June 2. Keteree Kucan's aiinouiiieinent that Nelson and Attell would box straight Qucensbury rules, which meant to protect themselves at all times, the crowd yelled with delight. When the boxers and their seconds met in trie center of the ring, Nelson refused to shake Atteli's hand. At the beginning of the sixth round, Nelson repeated this action, and was roundly hooted by the spectators. Nelson proved to be a great "fighting machine."
