Man With Artificial Limb Has
Trouble in Pool.

A man with a new cork leg fell into the hands of police last night, because he thoughtlessly started to wade a pool of water in the rear of a saloon at Seventeenth street and Belleview avenue. Though he still used two crutches the handicap of having one of his feet persist in floating ahead of him was too much, and he went down on the bank of the pool, to be rescued later by Patrolman Madagan and the Walnut street police ambulance. In the man's pocket was a card with the name George Malo, and the papers to indicate that he had recently been a patient at St. Margaret's hospital of Kansas City, Kas. He ha been drinking and did not answer when asked if the name on the card was his. He was held for safekeeping.
