RABIES IS GAME. He May Snrvlve Ilia Woandi, Bat Will Be Paralyied. Edmund Rable, the youug German who was shot by Charles Paeundus at Springfield last Saturday, Is lying at the charity hospital In a somewhat improved condition, but he will probably not recover the use of his legs. The ball has not yet been removed and he suffers great pain. Yesterday a reporter called on him, to ward 9. He la able to talk intelligently, but does not speak English fluently, and he says that his memory Is affected so that he cannot remember accurately what happened on the day that he was shot. To commence with, however, he says that there had been some trouble with the crowd of men, whom he says were always together. Including Turnage, Fa-cundus, oue of the Settoons, and others, -e knew that they had made up their minds to mob him, and when be saw them they were all together. When h began to attack Turnage he knew that the others were likely to take part. He said that when he began to whip Turnage that individual drew a pistol and then rtn. He wouldn say that Turnage fired He always carried a pistol himself and he followed, tiring at him. Just how Fa-cundue got into it he could not say. but he said that the crowd was ready to attack him anyway, and he knew that they only wanted a chance. Uabie did not deny that he fired at Fa-cundns. He said that he had oo donbt of it, but he could not tell Just how it caine about. However, he thought that he would be able to show that the story, as given by Facundus. was not right, and that they had a plot to mob him. Uabie cannot move his legs, and when one of them is lifted someone haa to put It back in a horizontal position again. He does not eeem to be discouraged at all, however, and Is either not aware of bis condition or he is one of the gamest men ever in the hospital.
