A mad cat had the stage at 25 A Street last night for nearly an hour. The mad cat was not made mad by the bite of a mad dog. But this fact was not established until after motorcycle Officers Clinton and Hyatt had made a record run to the above address in response to a telephone call saying the mad cat had run amuck and chased the family out of the house. When the intrepid officers entered the kitchen with drawn pistols ready to dispatch the demented feline, they discovered a harmless and outraged kitty struggling desperately and vociferously to free her tail from a broomstick to which some mischievous youngsters had tied it.
