THE CULPRIT LODOED IN JAIL.
Five pistol-shots and innumerable fcmilo
screams startled tho quiet neighborhood of
Fourth and K strcots southeast Just beforo
10 o'clock last night.
"Oh, for God's sake, don't kill mc, Dick!"
cried Mary Lcc, n colored woman, as sho
lan Into her husband's nrms on tho sldownlk
In front ot No. OH Fourth street. Her hus
band, Illchard, had been chasing her nnd
firing nt her w till a pistol. She realized that
she could not escape from him, and turnod
to beg for mercy, when ho deliberately put
n bullet through her brain. Tho ball struck
tho unfortunate woman just In front of tlio
right car and sho fell in her tracks. Sho
was carried around tho cornor to No, 400 K
street, nud Dr. Bogcrs summoned, who ar
rived ten minutes utter tho shooting and
found her breathing her last. Tho parties
weremotrlcd In ISSOaudhavo thrco children,
and the deceased was about to again become
n mother. They havo been separated
sluco last Juno, and Mrs. Leo was occupy
ing n room In No. 400 K street with her
sister, Lucy Williams.
Lee como to tho houso about 8 o'clock
slightly Intoxicated. His wlfo was sitting
lun back loom by tho stovo with her two-year-old
chllil In her arms. "I thought you
wcro 'at mournlug,' " ho said to her. "You
paid )ou wcro going to tho mourner's
bench." Ills wife replied that she thought
ho was In need of prayer. Her sister, Lucy
Williams, took tip tho conversation nud
told htm Mint sho rented tho houso nud ho
would have to go oat, for she wanted no
troublo in her house. Ho left and bade
them good evening as ho went out of tho
door. Ho returned nt 0:10 o'clock and
found tlio door locked. Ho rapped and
Mrs. Williams went up stairs and spoko to
him from tlio second story window.
"Where Is Polly f" ho demanded, Ho
was told by .Mrs. Williams that If ho dldu't
go away from her door sho would havo
him arrested. "I've got to sco her this
night," ho said, bursting tho keeper from
tho door nud coming in. When ho entered,
Maiy Campbell, a young mulatto woman,
who has a room lu tho house, was sitting
In front ot tho stove. Ills wife hail her
baby In her arms sitting noarly behind tho
stove. Wm. II. Williams, the husband of
Lucy Williams, was asleep on a chair.
As Leo entered ho advanced nearly to tho
door leading Into tho loom whero tho people
wcro sitting and fired first at May Campboll.
Sho dodged under ills arm und ran out of
the front door Just as ho fired tho second
shot. Mrs. Leo dropped her baby nud rati
up stairs as her husband II red nt her. Ho
pursued her, nnd, thinking sho took refuge
lu bed, ho discharged tho pistol lu that di
rection and caino near hitting his two chil
dren, 3 and 4 years old respectively. Tho
pistol was so near tho bed when ho dis
charged It that tho flash scorched tho cover
ing. His wlfo galucd tho head of the stairs
aud rushed down, aud hearing her footsteps
ho turned and pursued her. Ho followed
her und chaEcd licr along It street to Fourth
street aud fired another shot. Sho was ap
parently still unhurt, nnd ns she turned in
supplication to him with outstretched arms,
ho killed her.
Tho fatal shot whizzed past the car of n
colored man, who was passing, nnd nearly
Iriglitcncd tlio wits out of him. Leo quietly
regarded tho prostrate form of his wife,
nnd, pocketing his pistol, walked leisurely
away, no ono darlug to arrest him becauso
of his being armed. His pistol was now
empty und ho evidently still had murder In
his heart, for ho stepped luto tho drug storo
or uuancs iiawiuns, -wi u street, tureo
squaies away, nud quietly asked If ho sold
cartridges. Ho reoclvcd a negative reply
and then walked out. lie went to Fourth
street nnd Pennsylvania avenue, on Capitol

did tho same thing at Second street and

Dyson Hall, on A street near First stroct,
and told Dyson of tho occurrence.
Tho wholo pollco precinct woro on his

start after Leo. So well did ho know tho
habits of tho man ho was after that ho met
every body w hom Leo met after ho did tho
shooting. At Dyson's ho lost the trail for a
minute, but ho started again nnd went to
Howard's i ow, a tow of largo framo tcuo

A I'ossllilo Content Over tlio I'rosl
Mr. Jacob Schoeiiliof of Now York, tho
newly appointed consul of tho United Statos
at Tunstall, England, falls Into ono of the
nicest places in the Diplomatic ScrvlM.
Tunslnll Is In tho midst of tho pottery dis
trict ot Great Britain. Tlio salary ot the
consulate Is $2,500, whllo tho fees swell tho
compensation to about $7,000 por year, so
that, when It Is also remembered that there
Is a vice-consul nt Tunstall, who Is sup
posed to do all tho work of tlio consulate,
it will bo seen at onco that Mr. Schooiihot
will havo iwilco thing ot It If tho Senato
does not reluso to confirm lilm. Mr. Schooii
hot Is n well-known writer on the subject ot
frco trnilo. Durlnir tho lat Presidential
campaign ho contributed a series of nrtlclcs
to tho Boston Herald and tho Philadelphia'
Jlccord on that suljcct and on tho frco
trado sponsorship of tlio Democratic party,
so that his appointment Is looked upon by
many as n direct reward for party Bcrvlce.
Then, too,lho man whoso placo Mr. Schoen
hof has been selected to (111 Is Mr. E, E.
Lnno ot Illinois, who has occupied tho post
acceptably since 1878, and whoso writings
on tho subject of labor in Europe have boon
considered among tho best work ot tho kind
in tho scries of publications by tho Depart
ment of Stale. Now It so happens Mint .Mr.
Lnno was appointed through tho Infliicnco
of Sonator Logan, oud It Is currently re
ported among Lane's friends that tho Gon
cral hasdcclnrcd that tho day will novcr
tomo when n successor to Lane shall ho con
firmed by tho Senate unless Lane shall have,
of his own choice, tendered tits resignation.
Lnno likes the place, and moans to mako a
fteht to stay there. Hcuco thopossthlllty ot
a stumbling block In tho wayof Mr.Schoon

Our nrllst lo-ilny,w Ith Hint courage which
Is one ot his many leading characteristics,
tackles a subject lhat Is not only delightful,
but dangerous. Ho mado a tour of somo of

This, of course, was n dinicult feat for
ono without a beard. As our artist Is a very

one of our joung men wlioo versatility has
bicu schooled In somaiiyoxhibltlous nfndi
vciso and useful character that he Is Imper
vious to ccn the ilnuger ot a tour among
Mioyoung Indies who unku the purchase of
nn article n pleasure and causes It to leave
no lingering regret for tlio amount nt cash
cxpindcd. For tlio shop girl Is not only
one ot tlio most useful Institutions lu tho
world of kunlucss, but sho is n general bene
factor In unking Iho jnirchaso of goods
anything but a matter ot annoyance. She Is
polite, handsomely and tastefully drossod,
has n good temper and Is nearly nlways
pretty. She has to bo on hand early nnd
lias long hours of work, but It Is very sel
dom that you llud her, no mutter how tired
sho may be, when Miu Is not ns pollto and

suited. Tlio first specimen of tho shop
girl which tho two young men approached
was a tall young lady with fluffy, golden
hair, bluu ccs, au car ns pink as tho Inside
of a sen shell. The nrllst caught her as sho
was cutting oft n )ard of ribbon which tho
young man, who Is not au artist, recklessly
purchased In order to learn that this young
lady had lather wait on n dozen men, es
pecially young men, than two ladles. Sho
said that a man, whether ho knew what ho
wanted or uot, bought something nnd went
awny, whllo tho lady wanted to sco every
thing nnd then very often bought nothing.
At the next emporium visited It was Im
possible lo hold tho nitlst back, but the ac
companying oiing man m.ido him llr.st
sketch thu )oung lady approached and
afterward threw In a diagram of tho artist
as ho was In tho act of receiving a packago
containing twclvo pairs of socks which ho
had bougtit and for which ho had no pres
ent use. Ho did not say a word to tho
trim llttlo bruuetto except to stammer out
tho word "socks," nnd the trim llttlo bru
netto gave them to him to the extent of $1.75.
But whllo ho was dumb as to articulation
ho was what ho thought to bo eloquent as
to eyes nud Insinuating as to tho general
contour ot tho face.
I hero was a somewhat similar oxporlcuco
