WE BARRY'S GRIME
The Awful Story to Be Rehearsed in
MISS BARRY HAS SINCE DIED
Her Brother Killed Her Lover and
the Shook Wa« Too Much
Special to The Journal.
Langdon, N. D.. July 15.—T0-morrow at
noon will be opened in the district court
of Judge Kneeshaw in this city one of the
most celebrated murder cases ever tried
in North Dakota. The state will take up
the charge of murder in the first degree
against William Barry, a wealthy farmer
from the vicinity of Milton, who stands
accused of the cold-blooded killing of An
drew Melelen, one of his farm hands, early
on the morning of Jan. 3.
There is a terrible story attached to
this tragedy. Barry will pose In the trial
as the frantically insane avenger of the
undoing of his sister, Miss Mary Ann
Barry, who has since died at the James
town insane asylum a physical and men
tal wreck, the result of the shock given
her by the killing of her lover by her
brother. The crime took place in the
barn on the Barry farm last January,
when the taking of the life of Mellen,
who had been one of the murderer's hired
men for over five years, and looked upon
almost as one of the family, was deliber
ate and cold-blooded. Barry first tried to
hang his victim from one of the beams
overhead, but not having the rope se
cured he took a knife and with a single
gash in the neck sent his victim into
eternity, Mellen dying two minutes after
the blow was struck.
The defense will fight the case on the
grounds of temporary insanity and have
witnesses from tie Ontario home of the
Barry family, as well as expert testi
mony that the disease is hereditary. The
defense will make a desperate effort to
exclude the confession of Barry at the in
quest. Since being jailed six months ago,
Barry has been reticent as to the history
of bis crime, a marked contrast to his
volubility up to the time his lawyers took
the case in hand.
The ante-mortem statement of Miss
Barry taken at her bedside shortly before
death at the insane asylum has been with
held from the public by the state with
the greatest secrecy and something een
sational is looked for when it is brought
into court Barry is considered to be
worth something like $15,000 to $20,000.

Hyde remarked during a heated discussion
that it was a noticeable fact that the grass
on the grave of late Deacon Joshua Haley,
son of Clerk Haley, had not been cut. Mr.
Haley was not present, " but when he
learned of the deacon's remark he visited
him and demanded a retraction. As this

RUSSIA'S COMING FAMINE
NO SALVATION FOR THE CROPS
No Rain Since Early June, and Rain
Now Would Be of No
Correspondence of the Associated Press.
St. Petersburg, July 2.—Large parts of
the empire are again threatened with
famine. The last official report, which has
just been published, was dated June 21.
Since then not a drop of rain has fallen
in the eastern province, and it is believed
that the crops are now largely beyond
hope in many districts. The provinces of
Samara and Saratoff will probably witness
a recurrence of the dearth of two or three
years ago, and a dearth in these provinces
is particularly dreaded on account of the
ignorance and helplessness of the Bash
kirs and Tartars who make up a consid
erable part of the population there.
The newspaper Volkar states that from
all sides reports are coming in that both
winter and summer grain are beyond hope
of salvation, even should there be ample
rains, and no hay at all will be har
vested. Since early June the temperature
has been about 101 and no rain has fallen.
The fields are burned and brown and the
feeding of cattle and horses has already
begun to be a problem. The same kind
of reports are coming from the province
of Kazan. The Volga provinces have al
ready been visited by two severe famines
during the last ten years, and the popula
tion has lost whatever power it once pos
sessed to withstand famine.

Special to The Journal.
Elgin, 111., July 15. —The bravery of a
16-year-old girl in capturing and locking
up a mad dog after the men in the neigh
borhood had sought places of safety saved
several persons from being bitten last
evening. Previous to that the dog had
bitten one small boy and created conster
nation among the persons seated on the
verandas and lawns of the fashionable res

large beagle hound and the pet of Miss
Last evening, while Harry Zimmerman
was delivering groceries at a neighboring
house, the dog ran through the back yard
and up to him on the porch. He spoke to
the animal, which made a lunge at him,
growling and with mouth open as far as
the leather muzzle would permit. Drop
ping the flve-gallon gasolene can which ha
carried, he started on a run for his deliv

He reached the wagon in safety. The
dog then attacked Ralph Burnidge and
grabbed him by the calf of the leg.
Screaming with pain and fright, the boy
turned to face the animal. As he did so
the dog released its hold on the boy's
leg and sprang at his throat. The animal
did not reach him at the first leap, and as
it was crouching to spring again the boy
threw a valise in front of it and escaped.
The dog started down the street. By
this time the people, with one exception,
had fled from their lawns and were peering
through their screen doors and windows.
A lone man was watching a bonfire across
the street from the Wedell home.
As the dog made for him and he started
for the house on a run, Miss Mabel Wedell
ran out from the front door of her home.
The dog's attention was attracted by her
whistle. The dog sprang toward her. Un
daunted, she Jumped nimbly aside and
caught the animal by the collar. She led
the large dog, alternately lunging forward
at her and dragging backward to get away,
the length of the yard, and, unassisted,
managed to close the sliding door, shut
ting him in the carriage barn. The animal

Lexington, Ky., July 15.—Parthenia How
ard Young, a negro woman here, has been
shedding needles and pins since one day
last week, and altogether forty-nine frag

pins, have been taken from her fingers and
toes. The particles, some of them repre

from beneath her nails. They can be
seen to creep out, and are removed with a
small pair of nippers. To-day Dr. Allen
removed twenty-one pieces. The woman's
mother says her daughter has been voo

her ten years ago by a voodoo doctor who
was madly in love with her, and whom she
rejected for another suitor. After she
jilted the doctor she became ill, and pins
and needles were taken from her spine.
Since this time she had five other similar
spells. Several physicians have gone to
see her, and they cannot account for her
strange condition, except by saying that

Contagious Blood Poison you must take these minerals for two years or longer;
first, a course of Mercury, and when your teeth get so sensitive and sore that you
can't eat, and the gums have a spongy, unnatural appearance, you are told to stop
and a change to Potash is made. When the stomach rebels you are put on Mercury
again, and so on ad infinUum, or until the system becomes so thoroughly saturated
with these poisonous drugs that the most disgusting sores break out on the body,
the bones become diseased, and the muscles and joints are racked with the most
torturing pains. Mercury and Potash drive the eruptions and blotches from the
skin,' bat the virus remains in the blood and the reappearance of the old symptom*
and the occasional sore mouth show that the poison is still active, and you can ?
never hope to completely eradicate it by this method of treatment
