"MURDER" IS A BOOK AGENT.

Woman Wanted Quick Police Action
in Getting Rid of Him.

In response to a murder call last night, Sergeant Harry Moulder of the Westport police station grabbed his club and gun and ran to 1000 East Forty-ninth street.

"Where was the murder?" demanded Moulder as Mrs. Edward Harris answered the door bell.

"Why, there isn't any murder," she answered sweetly. "You see I had ordered a book agent out of the house and at his refusal to move I called the police. I knew you would hurry if I turned in a murder call. But the scamp has gone now and I don't need you."

Sergeant Moulder turned away.

FRACTURED HIS SKULL.

F. A. Tewksbury Injured While
Taking Car to the Barn.

While taking a Rockhill car to the Troost avenue barn, at Forty-ninth and Harrison streets, last night, F. A. Tweksbury, the conductor, leaned out from the car, and his head came in contact with an electric light pole with such force that his skull was fractured.

The ambulance from the Walnut street police station removed the injured man to the University hospital, where he is in a precarious condition. Tewksbury lives at 1512 Washington street.
