Serious Charge Against a Woman.

New York, 1895

Frank Bressel, a Bohemian cigarmaker, residing in Long Island City, charged Mrs. Mary Sullivan, the wife of Joseph Sullivan, a Calvary cemetery employe, with attempting to poison his two children, Willie and Frederick, aged respectively 2 and 3 years. Justice Duffy held Mrs. Sullivan in $500 bonds.

Schrell Paid his Fine.

Henry Schrell, the Bayside illicit distiller, who was blown up in an explosion of his own still some weeks ago, was convicted in The United States court on Tuesday before Judge Benedict, and was sentenced to pay a fine of $200. Schrell was overjoyed that he did not have to go to prison and smilingly paid his fine.
