A TerriMe Mistake.
A ne^v made gr.ivo in the cemetery at.
Mdldaie, Ky., a day or two ago received all
?va? mortal of Ciaudas II Golden, a
man whor^o life was made a wreck through
ii fatal mistake which preyed on bis memo
ory for more than a decade, drove him to
drink, and finally to almost a pauper's grave.
Fifteen years aao Claucius Golden, a young
man whose prospects were tho brightest, re?
turned to his home there from Norfolk, Va.,
where, he hud graduated in tho lav; depart
meutof the university with the highest hon
ors. He was wealthy and surrounded with
ail the comforts of life, and around him
gathered tho friends of his early hoyhoorl.
Sir months after his return from college he
w as wedded to Miss Cyrilla T. Henderson, a
highly accomplished young lady of Mill
She was just 19 years of age, of fair com
pb xion und light hair, tho lovely daughter
of Z N. Henderson, a wealthy and aristo?
cratic gentleman who loved his daughter
better than life. Golden and his" beautiful
? ride settled down to pass their honeymoon.
Naitire s-iniled en them. The young hm
bund rapidly built up a law practice and
promised to shine at the bar of tho State.
But a change, dark and forbidding came.
One mornitig, just before leaving town for
two or three days, while passing through
bis wife's apartments, he picked up a piece
of paper from the floor. He carelessly
rdaueed at it and fell back horror stricken.
It was a note couched in-loving words be
^iutiint!, "Dear C." and ending, "Lovingly,
Folix." What did it mean? Could his
dear wife bo false? His manhood rebelled
a -uch r. thorn;!'.'., but there was tho note
found in tho wife's bedroom. Hia jealousy
H< put the note in his pocket and kept
the seen t. He tan over a list of his friends
in hi? mind and nied to think of a ' Felix.1' j
At last it flashed on him. Felix Eraim, a
former sweetheart of CyrillaV, now a "dare?
devil" young mar. who cared lor nothing,
who eise couid it be ? Tho noto made* an
appointment for that night, and asked that
the way of ogress bo left open. Ciaudas ro
Bolved to sea for himself, and if bis suspi?
cions were correct he would wreak a terrible
revenge. Bidding his wife goodby, he
started ou his supposed trip. Instead of
leaving, however, he loitered about town und
after dark stole quietly tt. bis home. Ko
watched tho house1, aod wa9 finally reward?
ed. He saw Feiix Btaim enter hi* yard,
steal quietly to the back of his house and
raise a window. Then tbero was a Hash
and a report. Feiix Braim was ader.d man,
and Cluudas Golden a murderer. Golden
gave himself up.
When the trial camo he mado no defense,
aud said he wanted to die. The prosecution
stat ed its case, and sentence wasabcut to be
passed. Then there was a commotion. Cas
sie. Clarendon, a young Irish girl, a domestic
iu the Golden household, forced herself
through the crowd in the court ?com and
told her story. Felix Braim was her lover,
and it was to her the note begiuning "Dear
C," had been addressed. Cyrilla Golden
had been u irue wife to her husband.
Ciaudas was cieared but his lifo was wrecked.
Ho left the town of his birth, declaring he
would never return. He became a wander?
er over the earth, an outcast and a drunk?
ard. Finally, after fifteen years, he stag?
gered into Milldaie, a man broken in health
and spirit, a total wreck. Death at last
came to his relief, and he was buried by the
A Thrilling Escape.
From a passenger on a Denver and Rio
Grande train a Republican reporter was last
evei.ing informed of a thrilling escape made
by a convict ou his way to the penitentiary
some days ago. The geutleman who wit?
nessed the escape characterizes it as the
most daring feat imaginable. The fellow in
question was chained to a companion, both
bound to the dreaded penitentiary, with the
uninviting prospect of serving out a dreary
sentence. Th:; men were morose and eat
together in moody silence. Near by, wear?
ing a smite of eontentnn-nt aud all uncon?
scious of impending danger, sat, self-satis?
fied, one cf Sheriff Cramer's most trusted
deputies. His two prisouers were securely
shackled anel nave him little uneasiness.
Their behavior "was not conducive to dis?
till:!, and until tho train had passed Pueblo
thetr conduct was irreproachable. How?
ever, as the train thundered along one of the
men formed a sudden resolve to escape. It
v. a desperate measure and was carried out
with a recklessness born of an intense desire
for freedom from his hated shackles. Quiet?
ly the two men arose, and, with shackles j
clanking, walked slowly to the closet in the i
rear of the car. They entered, and with a j
suddenness that surprised his mate one of the |
men shattered the singlo pane of glass and
leaped through the window. Tho shackles ;
were strong and refused to part. TfaU3 sus?
pended the foolhardy wretch swung, each
jolting movement of the train iurcbing bis i
body back and forth aeaiuat the car. The
strain upon the m3n within the coach waa
terrible. Still the train sped on and yel
the obsinato chain of steel refused to part.
The sensation to the convict dangling above
' the rails was horrible. Unable to reach the
ground, with the window beyond his reac,
bo hung a helpless maat, expecting each
moment to be dashetl against a protruding
obstruction. At last, with a snap, bia
cruel bonds were severed, aud freed h-.- L
Fortunately he alighted without injury, and
quickly recovering h'tot^elf he dashed away.
His flight acrof? the prairies for life and
liberty wes watched with excited eagerness
by all iho passengers on the :rain. He had
marie a datedevii attempt at liberty and
had succeeded. His companion, who lacked
sufficient nerve to follow, was securely
shackled rigain and landed in the penitenti?
ary without further mishap.?Denver Repub?
