Captured by Woman but Mob Takes Him from Her, Put on Pyre Near Highway
    Rome, Miss., Dec. 31 - Charley SHEPHERD, Negro alleged murderer and abductor, was burned on a funeral pyre here tonight.
    After mutilating his body and firing several shots into it, the mob of several hundred men placed the Negro on a pile of logs, threw gasoline over it and set it afire.
    John OSBORNE, Associated Press staff correspondent, the first newspaper man to reach the scene, said the lynching occurred about 8 p.m.
    The Negro, he was informed, admitted he had killed J. D. DUVALL, employee of the state prison farm at Parchman, and abducted his 18-year-old daughter. He took all the blame, absolving two bunkmates who had been linked with the crimes.
                                        LYNCHED NEAR HIGHWAY
    The lynching took place about 25 feet from a public road, and when OSBORNE arrived an hour later the body was still on the pyre. He was told by persons at the scene that it would be left there.
    SHEPHERD, a convict, was seized by a mob near Cleveland today shortly after he had surrendered to a woman planter and she and several men had started to take him to jail.
    A posse of some 2,000 men, aided by National Guard officers, had been searching for the Negro.
    SHEPHERD had been hunted since last Friday morning when Mrs. DUVALL discovered that her husband had been stabbed and beaten to death and her daughter kidnapped. When the young woman stumbled into a prison camp Saturday morning with a story of mistreatment at SHEPHERD's hands, the number of men seeking him increased and authorities redoubled efforts to find him.
    This morning Miss Laura Mae KEELER received word from SHEPHERD's brother, who is one of her employees, that Charlie was on her plantation and wanted to surrender.
    Miss KEELER went unarmed to the cabin where the convict was hiding and he gave himself up. A few minutes later she and two white men, with Miss KEELER driving, started out to take him to some safe place to avoid any violence.
    "We got in a car and started for Parchman," she said, "but met such a mob that we tried to make for Cleveland to turn him over to the sheriff, but a mile and a half from Cleveland they took him away from us."
     The lynching occurred about midway between here and Camp 11 of the prison farm. OSBORNE said there were about 40 persons left at the scene when he arrived. Rain had been falling all afternoon but had ceased at the time of the burning.
    Estimates of the number in the mob ranged up to 2,500. Reports were that the men went quietly about their grim task.
    The mob kept him captive, riding him in a car for many miles until the lynching. He confessed to the crimes early it was said but his captors sought to get a statement from him implicating the other two negroes. He maintained to the last they were not implicated.
    Miss KEELER, captor of a man whom hundreds sought, is only five feet tall.
     Madison, Wis., Dec. 31 - Juneau County's boy sheriff, Lyall T. WRIGHT, found himself out of a job today after Gov. Fred ZIMMERMAN had heard charges that he attempted to bribe two Federal prohibition officers.
    WRIGHT, who is 27, is the third sheriff removed by the Governor this year. WRIGHT was accused of having offered $500 to prohibition agents to obtain the transfer to the state courts of charges against men captured in a raid on a still near Kilbourne.
    WRIGHT was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for Congressman from the Seventh District in the primary election in September.
At Preliminary Hearing, Justice Orders Case Taken Before Grand Jury
    Canton, Ohio, Dec. 31 - The Stark County Grand Jury next Monday will be called to consider the case of Wilbur O. HELDMAN, alleged "moral murderer" of his pretty 21-year-old wife Margaret.
    HELDMAN was bound over to the Grand Jury without bond today by Justice of the Peace Donald SMYTH after a preliminary hearing. The prosecutor read the 27-year-old Loraine, Ohio, Furnace salesman's story of how his wife took her own life after confessing to him that she killed Vernard E. FEARN, Canton coal dealer.
    HELDMAN brought his wife, dying from a bullet wound in her heart, to Sheriff Ed GIBSON the night of Dec. 13. She said she shot herself when they had reached the outskirts of Canton after driving from their home at Lorain. HELDMAN said he was going to turn her over to the Canton authorities after he had learned that she was the young woman who a week previously had called FEARN to the front of his home south of here and pumped six bullets from an automatic pistol into his body because the coal dealer had made life like a "hell on earth" for her.
    Coroner T. C. McQUATE, who filed the murder charge against HELDMAN on the contention that he was "morally responsible" for his wife's death, was the first witness at todays hearing. He told of his autopsy on the body of Mrs. HELDMAN here and a second examination, made at the request of her relatives, after her body had been taken to her former home at Dubois, Pa., for burial.
    Columbus, O., Dec. 31 - Fighting for his life in much the same manner as another baby at Cincinnati, Donald HETTICH, 19-months-old Perry county boy, was in Grant hospital here tonight awaiting an operation for the removal of a peanut from his lungs.
    The child, who is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert HETTICH of Corning, O., has been harboring the peanut in one of his lungs since Nov. 26. Influenza and pneumonia developed. The boy was brought here tonight to combat them, and it was then that the presence of the peanut was discovered.
    The case is a close parallel to that of Frank BROOKS, an 18-months-old baby from Asco, West Virginia, who lives in a Cincinnati hospital with a toy motorcycle in his throat and pneumonia developing.
    Bath, Dec. 31 - The Men's Club of St. Thomas Episcopal Church plans a dinner in the parish house Wednesday evening, Jan. 9. All men of the village will be invited. John COMOSH, a business man of Corning has accepted an invitation to be the speaker on this occasion. Mr. COMOSH in his youth was membered in the professional staff of the P. T. Barnum Circus and with that aggregation, for several years toured the United States and Canada, South America and Europe. His address based on observations and reminiscences in professional career will be on the subject. "A Day with the Circus."
    Albion, Dec. 31 - George Franklin CRAWFORD, 11, of Detroit, was saved from drowning in the Barge Canal by quick action of two local men today.
    The youngster visiting cousins at the DELANEY home on Liberty Street was on a tour of inspection and adventure with a couple of young playmates when he took his unpremeditated plunge from the cement wall bank on the towpath just east of the Main Street bridge .
    Philip FUMERAL, local shoe repair man, saw him splashing and called Casimir MAJEWSKI, a canal employee at the bridge. They ran to the spot but were unable to reach the boy because of the sheer three-foot face of the canal bank and the lad unable to catch hold of any projections was sinking for the third time when FUMERAL showed his resourcefulness by taking off his overcoat, which barely compassed the span to the drowning clasp of young CRAWFORD. He was taken to the home of his relatives.
    The incident again raises discussion as to the necessity of having a boat or small float moored conveniently along the canal bank for emergencies. The sheer concrete walls throughout this village would undoubtedly cause trouble to even the hardiest athlete trying to leave the water and if today either of the rescuers had jumped after the boy, it is doubtful that they would have survived with no rope or other support convenient.
Little Hope for Life After Crash; Waterloo Man Has Concussion of Brain
     Batavia, Dec. 31 - Sisters of Mercy at St. Jerome's Hospital to-day noted steady and decided improvement in the condition of Frances MISITI, 7, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph MISITI, 15 Pleasant Street, Le Roy, for whom little hope was held after she was struck down Thursday night at Main and Bank Streets, Le Roy, by an unidentified hit-run driver.
     After the accident the child was rushed to the hospital, suffering from fractured skull, lacerations of the brain and bruises.
Waterloo, Dec. 31 - William VANGELDER, R. F. D. 5, Waterloo, was improving today at the Seneca Falls Hospital. VanGELDER, an X-ray picture disclosed, has concussion of the brain. He was injured early Sunday in an automobile accident on the Waterloo-Geneva road two miles west of this village.
    VanGELDER was injured when he and his two brothers, driving east, crashed into a standing automobile owned and driven by Charles WHITE, 783 Harrison Street, Syracuse. WHITE was slightly cut about the face while his companion, Miss Iva MAYKIAHS of Chittenango, sustained minor injuries.
    Geneva, Dec. 31 - William R. CARPENTER, Exchange Street printer secured a set of 1929 automobile plates today at a cost of $15 and took them to his place of business where a man immediately started changing the plates. After the first one was on and in less than fifteen minutes of the time he secured the plates, it was found that the other one was missing.
    A dollar an hour for motor plates is too much for the printing business. CARPENTER told the issuing clerk as he made arrangements for another complete set. At the same time he expressed the hope that the odd plate might do the party picking it up, a lot of good.
    Batavia, Dec. 31 - With the end of the 1929 automobile license plates not yet in sight, it looks as if some of the would-be late shoppers at the Genesee County Automobile Bureau office were destined not to drive tomorrow.
    The parade of the late shoppers started before 8 o'clock this morning, and continued until closing time, and after, this afternoon. County Clerk George MacDONALD estimated tonight his force of helpers, including a state trooper, had issued more than 1,000 pairs of plates today, but was unable to estimate the total issued, up to tonight.
Penn Yan, Dec. 31 - The final day of the license plate rush began at the Yates County clerk's office this morning when motorists were lined up long before the hour of opening. A line which took up all available space in the clerk's office, continued throughout the day and it was necessary for some persons to be disappointed in their quest for the orange and black plate, when the office closed tonight.
    County Clerk EMERSON was attempting to handle the peak of the rush with extra help engaged. The plates have been available since Nov. 19, but only 300 were sold before the final weeks's rush.

Has Covered 1,600 Miles in Three Weeks in Search of Lost Memory Victim
    Belief that his wife, Mrs. Irene C. MOHNEY, 23, brown haired and fair complexioned, who has been missing from her home since Nov. 26, is now in Rochester, was expressed last night by Grant L. MOHNEY of 1963 East Eighty-second Street, Cleveland.
    Mrs. MOHNEY disappeared from a theater in Cleveland five weeks ago last night, and her husband has since covered more than 1,600 miles in his search, aided by slight clues and a single letter from a sister. Amnesia is blamed for Mrs. MOHNEY's disappearance.
    Mrs. MOHNEY was seen boarding a Rochester trolley car in Syracuse three weeks ago, her husband said, and has since applied for two positions as a waitress in Rochester, and has been seen once on Monroe Avenue by a restaurant proprietor from whom she sought employment.
    Mr. MOHNEY said that his wife when she left home, wore a black broadcloth coat, with fur collar and cuffs, a gray jacket suit, black slippers, gray overshoes, gray cloth gloves, black velvet hat, white gold wedding ring, a silver ring set with an onyx, and a string of pearls. She was described as five feet, five inches tall, with gray eyes, medium brown bobbed hair and fair complexioned. She had $30 when she left home.
    Mr. MOHNEY, who asked to be notified at the Lincoln Hotel by anyone seeing his wife, said that on two occasions before Mrs. MOHNEY had suffered slight attacks of loss of memory after having taken gas for several teeth extractions, but that never before had she been away, except for a few hours. He gave the opinion that, if she has recovered from this illness, she fears to return because of her long stay from home.
    Today is more than New Year's Day to Mr. and Mrs. David AUGUST of 84 Milburn Street. It also is the fifty-sixth anniversary of their wedding.
    Mr. and Mrs. AUGUST were married on Jan. 1, 1873, by the late Dr. Max LANDSBERG, then rabbi of Temple B'rith Kodesh. The ceremony took place at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leopold GARSON, 63 Clinton Avenue North, at that time a residential section.
    For more than 35 years Mr. AUGUST was engaged in the delicatessen business in this city, conducting a store in Main Street East and later in Clinton Avenue South, which was discontinued soon after the World War. Mrs. AUGUST was interested for years in amateur theatricals.
    The couple removed to Buffalo soon after their marriage, and later lived in Cleveland, where Mr. AUGUST conducted a store selling children's clothes. On their return to Rochester, Mr. AUGUST opened his delicatessen shop.
    Both Mr. and Mrs. AUGUST are in excellent health. They have three children, Albert of Fairport, and G. Edgar AUGUST and Miss Edith AUGUST of Rochester, and a grandson.
    All types of public day and evening schools will open tomorrow for the completion of the term which ends Jan. 25. The next holiday is Washington's birthday and the next recess, Easter.
    The Christmas vacation this year has been marked by remarkably mild weather for this climate, but that in itself has been a disappointment for young people for whom Santa left sleds, skates, skis and toboggans. There has been very little snow, and likewise very little ice, and that usually on shallow pools.

WYLE To Head Atlanta Home For Children
Superintendent of Recently Closed Institution Here to Leave Next Monday
(photo of ARMAND WYLE)
    Armand WYLE, superintendent of the recently-closed Genesee Home, 1170 Genesee Street, during a quarter of its fifty years of service to under-privileged Jewish children of Western New York, and known as a leader in a number of Rochester civic and welfare activities, has been appointed superintendent of the Hebrew Orphans' Home in Atlanta, Ga., and will leave Rochester to begin his new work on Jan. 7.
    Closing Genesee Home followed section last October by the executive board of the Jewish Orphan Asylum Association of Western New York, by which the home was maintained. The board's decision was to line with the modern trend in child welfare work to place children in private homes instead of in asylums. The home cared for children from Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester. These children have been placed in private homes in the cities from which they had come, the Rochester children being placed and their welfare supervised in their new homes by Mrs. WYLE.
                                                                       Established 40 Years
    The orphanage to which Mr. WYLE is going was established forty years ago and has children from Florida, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, besides Georgia. It subsidizes children in their own homes in addition to caring for those whose home conditions prevent subsidization.
    Mr. WYLE is a former president of the Social Workers' Club, had a leading part in the foundation of the former Dorsey Home for colored children and served as its secretary for a time. He is credited with organization of a children's clearing bureau, which later was taken over by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children's Child Study Department, and he formerly was secretary of the advisory council of that department.
    He is a member of the board of the Jewish Welfare Council, a member of the Rochester Ad Club and at one time edited the Ad Club's weekly publication. The Bumble-Bee, and since has been a frequent contributor to its columns, is a member of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce and a former member of its Public Health Committee, and he is a former director of the Temple Club of Temple B'rith Kodesh.
                                                                    Has Won Recognition
    Mr. WYLE has attained wide-spread recognition for his work in his chosen field. He is retiring as a member of the executive committee of the new York State Conference on Social Work, and for four years he served as a member of that body's children's committee. He is author of articles in a number of periodicals, including the Survey Magazine, the Jewish Charities, now known as the Jewish Social Service Quarterly, and Anglo-Jewish publications in Rochester, Buffalo and Los Angeles.
    Mr. WYLE first came to Rochester in 1915 from New York City to assume the superintendency of the Genesee Home, continuing to 1921, when he resigned that position to take charge of the Jewish Orphan's Home of Southern California in Los Angeles. After successfully conducting a campaign which had as its aim the boarding out of institutional children in private homes, he went to the B'nai B'rith Orphanage, near Erie, Pa., where he remained as superintendent for six months, relinquishing that post at the request of the directors of the Genesee Home who desired him to return to the Rochester institution. He again became superintendent of the Genesee Home in 1924.
    In the last 20 years, Mr. WYLE has served as a volunteer at the Educational Alliance, community center in New York City, as director of social activities of the Hebrew Sheltering Guardian Society of New York City; as statistician for the Industrial Removal Office of New York City, assisting in the work of placing recently arrived immigrants in less crowded cities than the metropolis; as head worker of the Emanu-El Brotherhood of New York and as superintendent of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum in Newark, N. J. For several years also he was associated in newspaper advertising work for the Munsey newspapers in New York.
                                                                    Mrs. Wyle Well Known
    Mrs. WYLIE also is prominent in community and club work in Rochester. She is president of the Rochester Section, Council of Jewish Women; a member of the board of the Association of Workers for the Blind and chairman of its case committee, and a member of the Women's City Club and of its social service committee, and a member of the committee of the Central Index of the Council of Social Agencies. She also is chairman of the Child Welfare Department of the National Council of Jewish Women.
    Mr. and Mrs. WYLE will be at home to their friends from 3 to 6 o'clock Sunday afternoon. Mr. WYLE will leave for Atlanta by motor the next day, and Mrs. WYLE plans to join him a week later.
    Batavia, Dec. 31 - Eugene KARNAFEL, 18, of 16 Howard Street, is a lucky chap. He fell about six feet into a shaft at the Grange League Federation fertilizer mixing plant in Howard Street late today and escaped uninjured.

Suffering from gashes about the head said to have been inflicted with an ax in the hands an infuriated husband in the presence of three small children. Mrs. Mary ANGIOCOMO, 49, 42 Ellis Place, Charlotte, was taken to General Hospital last in a dying condition and the husband to a police cell after a chase of several blocks. Hospital authorities last night said the woman had little chance to live.
    The blows, according to police, were struck as the aftermath of domestic strife of two years' standing. Screams reported by neighbors to have issued from the house during the past week indicated the quarrels had increased in intensity in that time, they said.
    Sabatino SANGIOCOMO, 44, the husband, is lodged in a cell in the Lyell Avenue station, charges against him awaiting the outcome of his wife's condition. The children, Mario, 12; Flagio, 9, and Elsio, 6, were sent to the Shelter.
    Policemen DOANE and CLEARY, summoned to the house last night by excited neighbors, found the woman lying unconscious in the bedroom and the three children crying. Alarmed at the appearance, ANGIOCOMO dashed out the back door, clad only in his underware, they said.
    The policemen gave chase. ANGIOCOMO ran to Stutson Street and into the police station there where Policemen NEWTON and LAMPMAN seized him. Policemen DOANE and CLEARY summoned an ambulance.
    Police said ANGIOCOMO had been arrested two years ago on a charge of striking his wife with the butt of a gun. Quarrels since that time had been frequent, they said.
    At the hospital, Mrs. ANGIOCOMO was said to be suffering from nine gashes in the head. Detectives COLLINS and NORMAN and Lieutenant RUTHERBERG of the Lyell Avenue station were to question ANGIOCOMO further this morning.
Miami Beach, Fla., Jan. 5 - Tex RICKARD's resistance in his battle for life was slightly reduced to-night, said an official bulletin from Dr. H. E. ADKINS, RICKARD's physicians.
    The bulletin, the first to be given out since this afternoon, was issued at 9:15 o'clock and read: "Practically the same condition existed tonight as this afternoon. Mr. RICKARD's resistance was possibly slightly lowered. His temperature remains at 103, and his pulse has increased from 132 at 4 o'clock to 140 at 9 o'clock.
    Brooklyn, Jan. 5 - An ambulance in which Mrs. Mary GIBBON was riding today collided with a roadster, turned over and caught fire. Mrs. GIBBON was pulled from the wreckage and transferred to an automobile. An hour later she gave birth to an eight-pound boy at Kings County Hospital.
Washington, Jan. 5 - The influenza epidemic, now in its ninth week, has taken more than 12,000 lives in 65 principal cities, reports to the United States Census Bureau showed today.
    Weekly reports have shown a steady rise in influenza and pneumonia deaths since Nov. 3. The latest report, for the week ending Dec. 29, showed 2,957 deaths from both diseases.
    Additional deaths are expected before the epidemic has passed, since United States Public Health Service officials estimate more than 800,000 persons are now ill of "flu." Cases listed in official reports to the service total only 160,000 for the week ending Dec. 29, but this is said to be but a small fraction of the actual cases.
                                                                      BUFFALO SITUATION SERIOUS
    Buffalo, Jan. 5 - Health Commissioner Francis E. FRONCZAK said today Buffalo was confronted with the most serious situation since the influenza epidemic of 1918-1919. The commissioner's statement came when he announced a total of 211 deaths during the week ending at noon today. Of these 47 were from pneumonia, many of which followed attacks of influenza.
    Dr. FRONCZAK said respiratory diseases have been increasing and that a large percentage of the city's population was afflicted with bad colds and mild forms of influenza. This week's mortality rate was the highest in recent years, the commissioner said.
                                                                           NO EPIDEMIC IN GOTHAM
    New York, Jan. 5 - Fifty-six deaths from influenza were reported during the week ending today, an increase of 10 over the previous week. There were 315 pneumonia deaths, an increase of 92. New influenza cases reported during the week numbered 955 as against 441 the week before. There were 802 new pneumonia cases, compared to 632 a week ago.
    Dr. Charles BOLDUAN, director of public health education, said that these figures, although showing an increase, by no means indicate an epidemic. During the 1918 epidemic, he said, more than 12,000 cases of influenza were reported in a single week and the rate of mortality was much higher.
Man Found Frozen Died of Hunger, Coroner Says; No Clue To His Identity
    Geneva, Jan. 5 - As a result of an autopsy on the body of an unidentified man found frozen yesterday, Coroner George FLINT announces that the man starved to death, and that as a result of his weakened condition was unable to regain his feet after falling into a depression along the tracks of the Auburn branch of the New York Central Railroad about a quarter of a mile north of the plant of the Lisk Manufacturing Company.
    The body remains at a local undertaking parlor, while the officials are seeking identification. Fingerprints of the man have been forwarded by Frank E. FOLEY to the National Bureau of Criminal Identification in Washington, to the State Fingerprint Bureau at Albany and to the Army and Navy Bureau.
    Dr. H. D. HUBBS, who performed the autopsy, placed death at about 12 hours previous to the finding of the body and expressed the opinion that the man died where he was found from lack of nourishment and exposure. A watch in his pocket stopped at 12 o'clock.
    The man about five feet six inches tall had dark brown hair streaked with grey. He wore two suits of underwear, a tan and blue cotton work shirt, a suit of dark blue serge, a brown overcoat and gray cap. Scraps of clothing labels showed that the clothing originally came from Detroit or Wyndotte, Mich.
Octogenarian Philanthropist to Spend Winter in Warmer Clime
    Penn Yan, Jan. 5 - William N. WISE, one of Penn Yan's most active octogenarians, has left for Cuba to spend the Winter and a much-needed vacation. He plans to spend a few days in New York before sailing for southern climes and to return with the warm weather to the Lake Keuka region, where he at one time was known as the "Grape King."
    Since retiring from the grape business a few years ago, he has been giving a great deal of his time to the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Hospital, which now stands as the result of his efforts to establish

Elba Youth Tells How He Accidentally Shot Self; Has Chance of Recovery
Batavia, Jan. 5 - Sisters of Mercy at St. Jerome's Hospital today reported slight improvement in the condition of Edward SHULTZ, 21, of Elba, who is in the hospital with a revolver bullet hole through his left side, half way between the heart and the stomach. The youth may live, despite expectations to the contrary when he was brought to the hospital late yesterday.
    District-Attorney Bradford J. BURROUGHS stated today he was convinced the shooting was an accident. BURROUGHS said: "I talked with SHULTZ this morning and he told me that he keeps a trap line and carries a revolver to use there. He had just come in from the trap line when this accident occurred and was changing his clothes to go to town. His suddenly decided he would better unload the gun, or he would get into trouble. So, he said, he was doing that when the gun went off. He was alone in his room at the time.
    Dr. August H. STEIN of Oakfield was called to the wounded youth's home, three miles east of Elba, and had SHULTZ sent to the hospital. STEIN said neighbors indicated to him there might be foul play connected with the shooting. BURROUGHS dismissed this today as "neighborhood gossip." SHULTZ has claimed steadily the shooting was accidental.
    Last night Drs. William D. JOHNSON and Stanley R. HARE operated on SHULTZ, but were unable to locate the bullet, which went through SHULTZ's spleen. The spleen was removed and a blood transfusion was given. SHULTZ scarcely was able to speak today, but Sisters of Mercy said he passed as comfortable a night as could be expected.
Driver Pleads Guilty To Being Drunk; Fined
Penn Yan, Jan 5 - Frank RINGER of Keuka Park, arrested last week on a charge of public intoxication by State Troopers GREEN and STEELEY of the Penn Yan outpost following an automobile accident in which he was involved, pleaded guilty to the charge at a hearing held before Police Justice John SHERIDAN and was sentenced to ten days in the Yates County Jail and to pay a fine of $10. Following payment of the fine, the jail sentence was suspended.
    RINGER was the driver of a car which crashed headon into a truck driven by Forest WAGER of Jerusalem on the Benton road. Three people were taken to the Penn Yan Hospital following the crash, which badly damaged the truck. WAGER swore out the warrant for RINGER's arrest following the accident.
Canandaigua, Jan. 5 - Canandaigua postoffice receipts for 1928 were the largest in its history and exceed those of 1927 by $2,220.84, according to announcement made today by Deputy Postmaster John W. NIBLOCK. Total receipts for last year were $53,913.70 as compared with $51,692.86 the preceding year.
    Huge volumes of election circulars, letters and the like passing through the office during the campaign last Fall, are largely responsible for the unprecedented increase, Mr. NIBLOCK believes. There was a normal gain of approximately $1,000, he states, due to increased business of local manufacturers.
    Canandaigua, Jan. 5 - Action on the application of the White Rapid Transit Bus Line to extend its service from the city limits to a downtown hotel will be taken by the Common Council at its next regular meeting on Jan. 18.

East Pembroke, Jan. 5 - Rex G. BARTLETT, district deputy grand master, installed officers of East Bethany Lodge of Odd Fellows this evening.
   A report which appeared in yesterday's newspaper of Rochester and other cities stating that the funeral of Carl V. ECKLUND of 44 Mayfield Street, Rochester, in Middletown Friday was marred by a quarrel between two alleged wives of the deceased was vigorously denied by Mrs. ECKLUND upon her return to Rochester yesterday.
    Mrs. ECKLUND, who visited the editorial office of the Democrat and Chronicle last evening to protest against what she declared was a wholly unfounded story, said that she had attended the funeral of her husband in Middletown Friday, but denied that she had seen any other woman claiming to be ECKLUND's wife or having taken part in and quarrel with such a woman.
    According to the report which appeared in this and other newspapers, City Judge H. M. STARR of Middletown stepped in when two women, each believing herself to be the sole widow of ECKLUND, endeavored to take charge of the funeral. The other woman was said to have called herself Mrs. Carl V. ECKLUND of Lynn, Mass. In her denial, Mrs. ECKLUND declared she had not appeared at police headquarters in Middletown and had neither appeared before nor talked with any judge.
    The associated Press last night said that its Middletown correspondent declared the essential facts in the original dispatches were correct, and referred to City Judge H. M. STARR as having commented on the incident.
Two Shops, Construction Work and Automobile Damaged in Fires.
     Attempt to rescue newly pressed clothes from a rack endangered by flames which broke from a wall after a furnace pipe had become overheated, yesterday cost Rocco SOLOMONE, tailor of 10 Ford Street, burns about the hands and face.
    Despite the scorching, SOLOMONE remained to place his shop in order after a fireman had treated his burns and firemen under Battalion Chief SLATTERY had extinguished the blaze at a loss of $250.
    Timely arrival of firemen under Battalion Chief SLATTERY yesterday saved timbers used to reinforce new concrete work at 76 Exchange Street after they had been ignited by a fire used to keep the cement from freezing. The fire, confined to the basement of a building under construction, was extinguished with $25 damage.
    Automatic sprinklers yesterday were credited with preventing damage to the DuBois Press, 151 Broadway, when fire, laid to a clogged fuel line in an oil heater, rolled clouds of smoke from the plant. Fire companies quenched what was left of the blaze.
    Flames of undetermined origin early yesterday caused damage estimated at $200 to an automobile in the yard of Mrs. Charles HOWE, Westfall Road, Brighton.

A fellow fireman also answered the call with FLAIG, but FLAIG's blood was declared the proper type.
Man Who Shook Hands Four Times With Lincoln Has 92d Birthday
Returned from War, Built House in Which He Has Lived ever Since
(photo of Dennis Kelly)
    Dennis KELLY of 489 Lyell Avenue celebrated his 92d birthday Tuesday in the little seven-room cottage which he built more than 54 years ago, and despite the fact that his hearing isn't what it was when he joined the colors in 1860 he is still able to hold his own with the youngsters.
    Mr. KELLY was born January 1, 1837, in County Leatrim, Ireland, close to the line which divides the North and South of Ireland. He emigrated to this country in the Spring of 1854, making his home in Syracuse, where he became an apprentice in the carriage ironing trade. Within two years his interest in politics led him to join the Fremont and Dayton Presidential Club.
                                                                          Raised Popcorn on Shares
    Mr. KELLY came to Rochester the next year, 1857, intending to finish his apprenticeship at the Cunningham shop, but he found the doors locked. So he made his home in Gates, where he raised popcorn on shares with James H. CURTIS of Gates until he enlisted in the Union Army.
    "In 1860 I joined the Ogden and Gates LINCOLN Republican Cavalry Company," he stated. "We participated in all the movements of the 'Big Campaign' and were conspicuous in the line of march in the great LINCOLN parade in Rochester. In 1862 I enlisted with Company F, 105th Regiment, N. Y. S. V., and was promoted to corporal. We were greatly reduced in numbers and were later consolidated with the 94th N. Y. S. V.
    "In the battle of Gettysburg I, with my Colonel and hundreds of others of the regiment were taken prisoner. We were marched two miles southwest of the battlefield and received by General LEE. I know he was delighted to meet his Yankee cousins, especially when they were so harmless. There was a double guard thrown around us and I went up to a tree top to see what was going on in front, when a Johnny Rebel yelled:
    "Come down from there, you LINCOLN hireling, or I'll send a bullet through your worthless body."
    "I don't need to tell you that I came down right then. In a short time a good many of us got back to our lines. I was promoted to sergeant in Company F 94th regiment, N. Y. S. V. I re-enlisted in 1864 and was wounded at Fort Hill. Va.
    "In the Spring of 1864 the government was very poor. The banks from Boston to Washington refused to loan any money. The government called on the soldiers for help with what little they could spare. They responded with over two million dollars. I chipped in my own mite of $1,300, and would gladly have given more if I had it. And I got it all back.
    Mr. KELLY has been a Republican since he cast his first vote for LINCOLN, with whom he had the honor of shaking hands on four occasions.
    After being honorably discharged from service, Mr. KELLY returned home and in 1866 married Miss Louisa VAHUE, of Gates, who died in June, 1927, shortly after the two had celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary. Of five children, all are dead, and Mr. KELLY's only relatives are two grandchildren and six great-grandchildren all of California.
Mothers Will Hear Medical Professor
(photo of Dr. Eric Kent Clarke)
    Dr. Eric Kent CLARKE, assistant professor of medicine and director of the Division of Phychiatry of Strong Memorial Hospital, will address the Mothers' Council of the Third Presbyterian Church in the parish house of the church Tuesday at 2 o'clock on "The Play of Grown-Ups." The council has invited all women of the community to come and hear him. A luncheon is served by the council at 1 o'clock reservations for which must be made with Mrs. Frank B. KELLY, Monroe 1724, on Monday.
    Evidence to disprove the contention of Rochester police that the gun whose bullet killed Charles MACAULSO, 40, of 85 Joiner Street, in a fight over a card game Nov. 22 is in their possession, yesterday was laid before the Monroe County district attorney's office by William J. JONES, New York ballistic expert, at the conclusion of an investigation.
    The report concluded that bullet which killed MACALUSO was not fired from the gun in possession of Rochester authorities, but was discharged from a weapon in possession of Charles W.

Your Canine With Genealogy May Be Mut, Dog Body Warns
Warning against many persons in Rochester who are dishonestly advertising pedigreed puppies has been issued by the Rochester Dog Protective Association through its secretary, Miss Mary FOUBISTER.
    "Several cases have been reported to us recently" Miss FOUBISTER stated "of dogs purchased as pure-bred, which in fact cannot be registered. It has been customary for the purchaser to give the fee for the registration paper which was to be sent to him later. After repeated delays he has learned that he has a 'mutt' on his hands. Usually he has not cared to bring the case into court, and there has been no way of discrediting the practice.
    The Rochester Dog Protective Association does not seek to advertise any kennels or dog breeders, but is glad to furnish the names of reputable persons on receipt of inquiry. Those who are not members of the association are welcome to make use of this service.
    Miss FOUBISTER states that there are still available a few holiday tags with the verses of a humorous turn depicting canine joys and woes. These may be secured at the Association office in the Terminal Building.
