IMftTKl'lt INSTITUTE OF new yoimc has been closed NEW YORK, Deo. 12 The Pasteur Institute of New York, after nearly thirty years' service, lias been closed. The physician last at the heads of St, Dr. George (libler Rimbaud, had re-C'ldved a commission as major in the national army and was ordered to France on active service. His valedictory lor thei institute was the observation that it had fulfilled its purpose by Introducing the Pasteur treatments, now given In all Veil appointed hospitals. It was the Pasteur pioneer this side of the Atlantic. After its establishment others were opened in Chicago, St. T-iOuis and elsewhere. The bulk of Its work was the Pasteur treatment of hydrophobia; since 11-10 more than 10,000 patients had been treated, four-fifths of them without charge, and only Doctor Ratnbaud knows how brains and medullas of hapless dogs which hail bitten some one had been examined to determine whether the canine vtx rabid or not. freq r i ;nti :rs sentenced BEADING, 'Dec. 12 Fornv?r Constable William Miles was given eight months In Jail and Edward Davis six months, with, $25 fine for each, yesterday by Judges Knrtiich and Wagner, after pleading guilty on charges of frequenting red-light resorts.

COUNTY BOY TELLS OF BEING IN HOT BATTLE WAYNESBORO, Dec. 12. Irwin Bonebrake, son of Mrs. Sarah Eone-brake, of Shady Grove, is the first in jured Franklin cotmty soldier of the American forces to arrive home after the battle of Chateau-Thierry. July 15, and he says that the fight was ter rible and he received severe injuries. He is, 20 years old. Bonebrake was in Waynesboro n Tuesday and told the following: story in a straightforward manner without anj- braggadocio, whatever. He was a member of a machine gun company. "When we were going in we met some British troops coming out," he said. "They told us there was no use going' in, that no outfit could live in that hell. "Our captain said: That makes no difference to me. I have orders to go, if not a man of us comes back.' And we went. "When we reached the spot where we were to commence fighting we jumped off our trucks (I was in a mo-torize'd battalion, and started right after those boches. Guess they didn't know where wff- were from, for they kept coming right toward tis. Say, you know a machine gun fires so fast it hits a man seven, times before he falls. Well, that was the softest picking we ever had. Those crazy Hans came right toward us like we were their friends and the way we cleaned them-up. They dropped just like flies went over just like the way grass does when you put the scythe through it. We never had It as good again.for after they had counted their dead that night and I guess they realized the Americans were the, real thing. After this battle we had to pick them off the best way we could, but we got them, nevertheless. It was hell, but a fellow don't mind, it when he is in. "On Jjjly 3 the captain asked for a volunteeer to take a message to headquarters. I offered to go. It was ; about 11. o'clock in the morning and I had to go across an open space, when, I presented a fine target to the boches. They got me all right, with a high explosive, which tore my limb open from the thigh to the foot. I was picked up and taken to the hospital, where they kept my wound open twenty-five days, picking pieces of bone and shrapnel out of It before they sewed it up. Then they sent me to Paris to tlie Red Cross military hospital No. 1. "I sailed from France October, 22 and ..landed at Newport News, Va., on November 2. From there I went in n hospital at Cape May, and now I must report at Fort McIIenry, Baltimore. "I will probably never be able to work" on a farm again, but thev are going to teach me a trade, that of automobile repairing, which will enable me to earn a livelihood." He said while he was in the P.o.i Cross hospital the Huns shelled it and one of the Red Cross nurses was struck by the splinter of a shell or on net which entered her left rhook and came out through the right one causing her to lose her speech.

L BELM0SE ENDIOOTX Ten rods further on the horse snorted, stumbled,' and tried to etop. A writhing, flaming snake a burning branch plunged down through the smoke directly ahead. "Go on r shouted Joseph Stajr. with; a sharpness that would ordinarily havo' set Cherrv tTf nt irnllon. . I But, as the snorting creature etill shied, the man seized the whip ami lashed poor Cherry cruelly along LIj flank. At that the horse went toad. Ha plunged forward, leaped the Llazlcg brand, and galloped down the road at a perilous galL The man tried neither to soothe him nor to retard the pace. The smoke swirled around them. s The driver ceuld not see ten feet beyond the horse's nose. Ten minutes later they rattled down into tha straight road, and then, very soon, indeed, were at the abandoned 'camp. The fire was near, but It had not reached this place. There was no eiga of life about. The man knew whJch was Judy's cabJn. lie leaped from the vehicle, ; leaving the panting Cherry unhitched, ; and ran to the hut. The door swung open. The poor furniture wan In place. Even the bed-t clothing was rumpled In the old worn- j en's bunk. But neither Ehe nor A man- ' da Parlow nor little Carolyn May was there. CHAPTER XVI. Th Laurel to the Brave. The heart of the man was like & weight in bis bosom. With so many hundred acres of forest on fire, and that, too, between the abandoned camp and The Corners and' Sunrise Cove, how would Amanda Parlow and Caro lyn May know where to go? " Certainly the place must hare beea deserted In haste. There was Carolyn May's coat. The man caught It up and stared around, as though expecting tha child to be within sight. The old wotaan's clothing was scattered about, too. It did not look as though anything had been removed from the hut. Coming out, he found another article on the threshold ona cf Amanda'3 gloves. Joseph Stagg lifted the crnmpled glove to his lips. "Oh, God, spare her!" he burst forlH, "Spare them both !" Then he kls.sed the glove again and hid It away, in the inner pocket of his vest. The hardware uealer tried to think of Just what the f ugitivea might have flone when they escaped from tho cabin. If It were true that Amanda would not run toward the fire, then she mora than likely had taken the opposite direction on leaving the cabin. Therefore, Joseph Stagg went that way setting off down the tote road, leading. Cherry by his birdie. Suddenly he remembered calling Prince the day Carolyn May had been lost on the Ice. lie raised his voice la a mighty shout for the dog now. Prince! Prlncey, old boy! where: are you 5" Again and again he called, but thert was no reply. The smoke was more stifling and the heat more intense every minute. Mr. Stagg realized that he must get out quickly If he would save himself and the horse. He had just stepped Into the buck-board again, when there was-an ex cited scrambling in the underbrush, and a welcoming bark was glven. "Prince I Good boy!" the man shout ed. "Where are they?" The excited dog flew at him, leaping on the buckboard so as to reach him. The" mongrel -was delighted, ami showed Jt as plainly as a dumb brutfj could. But he was anxious, too. lie leaped back to the ground, ran a little ahead, and then looked back to see If the maa was following. The hardware dealer shouted to him again: "Go ahead, Prlncey! "We're coming V Tie picked up the reins and Cherry; started. The dog, barking his satisfaction, .ran on ahead and struck into a side path which led down fx glade. Joseph Stagg knew Immediately where this path led to. .There was a spring and a small morass la the bottom oC the hollow. "Go on! Good dog!" "cried Mr. Stagg. "Lead the way to Hannah's Car'lyn !" He heard "the little girl 6creamlngs "Oh, Uncle Joe ! Oh, Uncle Joe 1 Hera we are I" Cherry rattled the buckboard down to the bottom of the hollow and stopped. There was some smoke here, but not much. The man leaped to the ground when he saw a figure rise up from the foot of a tree by the spring a figure In brown. "Joseph! Thank Godl" murmured Amanda. The hardware dealer strode to her. She had put out bovh her hands to him, and he saw that they were trem-. bllng, and that tears filled her great brown, eves. SwtrKr dayafternoon. tTo b qontlnuedl
