CUT IN TWO BY A STREET CAR

Mrs. Mary Lennon of No. 1623 Wash street, was cut in two by Suburban car No. 128 in front of her home yesterday morning.

Mrs. Lennon had just completed some purchases of a huckster, whose wagon was standing in the south car track. She turned toward her home and had taken only a few steps when she was struck by the eastbound car, which she had failed to notice approaching.

The car ground her down and the front wheels severed her body in two within the few seconds it took Motorman Joseph Snathen to bring his car to a halt.
The body was so mutilated and begrimed that for some time it could not be identified.
Beside the mangled corpse, a purse containing $51.40 was picked up.

At the morgue, to which the body was carried in a patrol wagon, there was found sewed up in a cloth in her bosom an additional sum of $760.
At noon her son, George Lennon, called at the morgue and identified the remains.

He stated that Mrs. Lennon once lost money in a bank failure and never trusted banks since. That is why she carried the family savings on her person. She was a 45-year-old widow with three children.

NERVY HORSE THIEF

A young man who gave the name of John Porter sold a horse to J.H. Wilson, at the corner of Grand and Missouri avenues, for $2.50 last night.

Wilson asked Porter, before turning over the cash, if he knew anyone in the vicinity who could vouch for him to prove the horse was not stolen. Porter replied that anyone at police headquarters could, but there was no reason to be suspicious.

"That horse almost eats his head off," said porter, "and that's why I can't afford to keep him. If I hadn't got an offer from you I would have given him away."

Wilson kept Porter to his claim that the police would vouch for him and went with him to the Central station. At the entrance porter tried to break away, but Wilson seized him and pushed him in.

"You know me, captain, ain't I all right?" nervously demanded Porter of Captain Flahive. "I ought to be acquainted with you," was the reply. "We gave you 90 days last May for stealing a pocketbook."

Porter was locked up. The horse is awaiting an owner.

ALLEGED CRUELTY TO A RAT

Judge Jones will today decide whether a warrant can be issued for the arrest of a man for cruelty to a rat.

The question was asked of him by Humane Officer Greenman, who desires to prosecute an alleged brutal man.
J.S. Richkowsky is the owner of a small dry goods store at 215 Independence avenue. Yesterday he caught a rat in a large wire trap. Instead of killing it by the usual means employed, it is claimed he slowly tortured it until it died. His mode of torture, it is said, was by pouring scalding water on the imprisoned rat. Two men claim to have witnessed the act.
